Time and time again President Donald Trump has been proven right.
He talked about the problems on the U.S.-Mexican border. The left denied it, only for more and more news stories to come out showing just how bad it is. He mentioned Sweden at a rally. The left were quick to say nothing was wrong with Sweden, only for riots to break out the next day.
Oh yeah, and he said he was going to become the President of the United States. Some even said he was a joke for to run.
Who’s laughing now?
You’d think the left would learn to actually trust the man, but they just can’t seem to not embarrass themselves. Every time he makes a remark, they are quick to jump on it, trying to find ways to undermine him. Their bias is on full display every time he tweets, attends a rally, or makes a statement to the press.
I’m sure by now the New York Times, CNN, and other fake news outlets have teams specifically tasked to find ways to distort Trump’s statements. Why should they bother reporting the news, when they can just spend all day attacking the President?
Most recently the president sent shock waves across the Internet when he claimed President Obama was spying on his team during and after the election. The media was quick to deny that, even going as far as contradicting their own stories from earlier in the year. Then we heard from fair-weathered friend James Comey, who claimed that the FBI knows nothing about it.
It seemed like the press finally had a big boast from Trump proven wrong.
Until Nunes proved that Trump was right.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

From The Daily Wire:
On Wednesday, House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced, according to Politico, that “Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under surveillance during the Obama administration following November’s election.” Nunes added that the surveillance was legal, since it was incidental – meaning that the intelligence community was monitoring foreign sources and Trump’s team was on the other side of the line.
I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community collected information on U.S. individuals involved in the Trump transition. Details about U.S. persons involved in the incoming administration with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in intelligence community reports.
This means that President Trump was not wrong to suggest that Obama administration employees were surveilling his team, as Daily Wire’s John Nolte has been pointing out repeatedly.
Saying the monitoring was “legal” is one of those political slights of hand. The law is very strict when it comes to limiting what our government and law enforcement can and cannot monitor. So people in high places often find loopholes to get what they want.
Right now it’s legal for our government to spy on communications coming from outside countries. To monitor for terrorists, of course. Yet this gives them the ability to monitor the other side of the conversation, the American side, without violating the Fourth Amendment.
So Obama was able to spy on Trump–based on a technicality. It’s fishy at best, considering Trump was a major candidate for president. It’s very concerning that then President Obama was monitoring Trump’s team’s communication for any reason, considering he wanted his rival to win.
That’s called a conflict of interest.
Nunes made it clear that the people being monitored had “little or no apparent foreign intelligence value,” meaning they were not collude with Russia or doing anything questionable. Yet these communications were “widely disseminated in intelligence community reports.” Why? Because Obama and his cronies still working in the deep state wanted this information leaked, so that democrats and the press could find something to attack.
That’s why Mike Flynn was thrown under the bus. His communications with Russian officials was perfectly legal, but when distorted by the liberal media it was made into a controversy. They shouldn’t have even had access to that information, except that it was spread throughout the intelligence community and conveniently leaked to the press.
This was just a scheme by Obama to undermine President Trump. And what do you know? Trump was right all along.
So will head rolls as a result of this information? Will people finally acknowledge that Obama was doing something questionable at best?
I won’t hold my breath.
