Is a suggestion an order? Wiretapping!

Did President Obama wiretap Donald Trump prior to the election? Based on a FISA request reported by Brietbart, it may be that President Obama used the power of the intelligence community to monitor Donald Trump’s conversations in Trump Tower.

What evidence does President Trump have? We don’t know yet. Maybe he’s just making it up. This is breaking so it will take some time to sort out, but it does reflect just how bad the fight between those that lost the Presidency and President Trump has become.

A spokesman for President Obama has denied ordering the wiretap however, it has not been denied that it was done. Some of the previous administration officials have stated that something must have been up for the FISA court to permit the action. Really?

Yet, it appears that nothing was found. There seems to be an awful lot of Russian angst. Doesn’t that seem a little odd for an administration that thought Mitt Romney’s Russian foreign policy was from the 80s?

We continually hear about Trump’s Russian contacts yet no evidence of any wrongdoing can be found. Jeff Sessions may have spoken with the Russian Ambassador, just like a whole lot of Democrats in Washington did.

It is, however, nice to have intelligence on every move your competitor makes. Even so, the Democrats still lost the election. Perhaps we should continue to investigate. I recall and illegal server and thousands of deleted emails are still and issue, lots of classified information seems to have gotten on some of those emails and a lot of classified information is still leaking. Yes, investigate indeed.

The former President and the left simply can’t accept the results of our election, you remember that election that couldn’t be questioned when they thought Hillary would win.  They are now doubling or maybe tripling down on their narrative. Will it work? If it doesn’t work it may destroy the Democrat Party. It seems the left are going all in.

That said, fear not my progressive friends, the Republican Party is full of politicians too scared to really stand up to you. Only the President needs to be fought.

Hold the line!

I swear the leftist, RINOs and NeverTrumpers are turning me to fully support President Trump.

Benefits and downside of Hillary’s choice

Why would someone conduct official business on personal account that is maintained from home?

– Benefits

  •  Can circumvent government monitoring of emails
  •  Can pick and choose what emails you consider relevant to give to the government or select congressional committees.
  •  Can deflect FOIA requests
  •  Can be destroyed quickly and completely

– Downside

  •  Must maintain the server and backups – time consuming
  •  Must pay for skilled personnel to operate if not technically inclined or available 24X7
  •  Must pay for equipment and software personally
  •  Security – must maintain certificate issues or leave email and other information vulnerable

Reasons to use government email

– Benefits

  •  It’s no cost to the user
  •  Backups are made constantly to ensure users have access to older files and hard drive failures
  •  Full time IT departments that maintain the server software and hardware
  •  Full time IT support for assistance when something fails
  •  Records can be pulled by IT techs when investigations warrant
  •  Historical records maintained
  •  Built in security and encryption

– Downside

  •  Must submit to governmental processes (Service Request) to retrieve older data which may require justification
  •  Emails can be subpoenaed
  •  Must have access to network
  •  Emails can be monitored

It’s not inconceivable that at times a personal account might be used however, per USG guidance those emails should be forwarded to the government account or printed and sent to controlling authorities. these would be exceptions to the rule, not normal business.

So, why would someone have their own server at their home?  Hummm I wonder….(SARC)

Republican obstructionist

Those Republicans once again won’t vote on a proposed fiscal cliff deal.  I guess they don’t want anyone to do well.  Oh wait….

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday the Senate will not vote on Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) "Plan B" to extend tax rates for family income below $1 million.

The Democratic leader blasted Boehner for wasting time on "fiscal cliff" legislation that will not see floor time in the upper chamber.

“We are not taking up any of the things that they’re working on over there now,”

Don’t worry folks I’m not a fan of either side right now.
