I don’t know why Trump would send out a tweet like that if he didn’t have some proof, and like clock work the Democrats are piling on.
If your going to call out a former POTUS for spying you better have a smoking gun, personally I’m getting tired of all of this shit. Both sides need to provide evidence or knock it off, we have bigger fish to fry other a spat between agencies or former administrations. If you got the proof, get it out there…if not….shut the fuck up.

“This is the difference between being correct and right. The president was not correct in saying President Obama ordered a tap on a server in Trump Tower. However, I think he’s right in that there was surveillance and that it was conducted at the behest of the attorney general – at the Justice Department through the FISA court.”
As I’ve mentioned before the hate and vitriol that divides this country will get violent.
Well, here it is and it’s only a matter of time before sticks and fists are replaced by knives and guns. The question remains….where the hell are the police, the press obviously know whats going on, where are the cops?
If they won’t actively control violent protests, when someone gets killed, it’s on whoever is giving orders to law enforcement.

Watching players and caddies getting sick and dropping out of the WGC in Mexico has a touch of irony behind it.
The course itself is a beautiful old school track lined with trees and offers a unique layout. Considering it’s high elevation (7300 FT) players are having to adjust due to the ball flying farther than usual. Located smack dab in the heart of Mexico City the course looks gorgeous…..the vistas of smog enveloped buildings surrounding the golf course….not so much.
The tournament was moved from Trump Doral, which Trump bought in 2012. The Doral was part of the Florida swing sandwiched between the Honda and the Valspar. It was convenient for the players and the tour as Valspar is 70 miles away from Doral the previous week. Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City is 2300 miles away.
In June 2016 the PGA chose to accept an offer from a Mexican conglomerate to play the WGC in Mexico City. Many perceived the move as a way to punish Trump for his comments earlier in the year about Mexicans and Muslims, the tour claims it could not get a sponsor for Trumps Doral tournament which is bullshit.
And, of course, there is the backdrop that can’t be ignored: Did the PGA Tour decide last spring to move the tournament from Trump International Doral because of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s ownership of the resort?
“The people at Doral feel like they got caught in the middle,” said Joel Paige, a former vice president and managing director at Doral. “It wasn’t the venue. It wasn’t the community. It was the politics. The political thing was a lot more.
So enjoy the tournament, take note of the glowing reviews by the commentators, and remember the reason they are playing there is purely political. Tim Finchem, the PGA tour commissioner at the time, was an advisor for the Jimmy Carter administration.
Finchem served in the White House during the administration of Jimmy Carter as Deputy Advisor to the President in the Office of Economic Affairs in 1978 and 1979. In the early 1980s, Finchem co-founded the National Marketing and Strategies Group in Washington, D.C.

Men are not moist robots. The reason most white men don’t want to raise their kids next door to former tribesmen from Somalia is they don’t like Somalis. It is not personal, they just strongly prefer the choices of their ancestors over the choices made by the Somalis. They like their culture. They like remembering their ancestors by maintaining their traditions. They don’t want to toss what they are into the great blender of multiculturalism. It’s not about economic data or the tides of history. It is about preferences. They prefer their own over strangers. here….
If it’s true that the GOPe is planning on keeping the tax mandate and Cadillac tax in their Obamacare replacement plan they can plan on losing whatever conservative base they have left. They all campaigned for repeal, FULL repeal, not a replacement plan. I guess they are what we knew they were, spineless cowards. Hopefully Trump and his team will see through the fiasco.
House Republicans’ new version of the replacement bill is being kept in a “dedicated reading room,” Bloomberg reported, where it will be available to members of the House Energy and Commerce committee ahead of a markup. The move is an effort to prevent leaks.
Senator Rand Paul, one of the precious few voices of fiscal sanity in Washington, is not pleased:

Paul accused House leadership of not wanting to admit to creating a watered down version of ObamaCare, and demanded that they release text of the bill.
Paul later said he’s been told the House Republicans’ draft of the repeal bill is “take it or leave it.”
“In Obama’s first year in office, the United States resettled three-quarters of Iraqi refugees.
71% of Iraqi refugees are receiving cash assistance. 82% are on Medicaid and 87% are on food stamps. Compare those atrocious numbers to only 17% of Cubans on cash assistance and 16% on Medicaid.
It should be obvious why Obama shut the door on Cuban refugees while holding it wide open for Syrian Muslims (but closing it tightly on Syrian Christians), Iraqis and Somalis (77.4% food stamp use).” here….by jeffli6 with 2 comments
“There is no doubt it is best to have a fair and independent press, just as there is no doubt it is best to have a sober and kind mother.
But what if the press is unfair, biased, incompetent, and lies like an actual propaganda outfit?
Wouldn’t you prefer they recognized the problem and reformed themselves?
Similarly, yes, you’d like a sober and kind mother. But what if a mother is a chronic junkie and abusive to her children? Shouldn’t she de-toxify herself both chemically and psychologically?
And if you don’t insist on that — but just babble on about how important a mother is, no matter how unmotherly she may be — aren’t you just a damn enabler to evil?
A lot of “conservatives” — Crocservatives, let’s call them — seem to be defending the media while the media still refuses to admit it’s done a damn thing wrong, and in fact is just doubling down on all its sins.” here….
