Report: Obama “Irked and Exasperated” by Trump’s Wiretapping Lies

Our new president is a far right con man who built his career on brazen lies
Politics • Views: 41,484

President Obama hasn’t made a personal public statement about Donald Trump’s absurd and unsupported accusation that Obama ordered a “wiretap” on him during the campaign, but today CNN’s sources report that Obama’s “irked and exasperated.”

Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama was irked and exasperated in response to his successor’s uncorroborated wiretapping accusation, sources close to the former president tell CNN, though these sources say Obama’s reaction stopped short of outright fury.

Obama and his aides responded with disbelief when they learned of President Donald Trump’s Saturday morning tweets laying out the charges. Later in the day, an Obama spokesman said “neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”

Let’s face it; Trump built his entire political career on brazen lies about Barack Obama, designed to appeal to a delusional, conspiracy theory-saturated right wing base, so “irked and exasperated” sounds about right. Obama certainly couldn’t be surprised at this point.

It is time to take DT to task for making such unsubstantiated claims, not as a private person, but as a President, about another President

If our former President were to ask MY advice (he won’t, I’m sure, but Mr. Obama should feel free to log on to LGF and read it, anyway), I’d suggest he cool it with the media reports, or at least manipulate them a little more carefully. “Irked and exasperated” might be the exact reaction these inane BS stories are designed to elicit. And I’d to like think that PBO is too smart to let himself be goaded into an intemperate response by the likes of the Trumperrhoids.

And then Baghdad Spice said in his briefing today that he sees no reason why this would strain the relationship between Trump and President Obama.

Yes, Sean. It will. Ethical people that take being ethical seriously don’t like being called unethical. They tend to get a bit irked. Then they tend to completely write off the accuser and have nothing to do with them. A “fuck you” is often added.

President Obama is too classy for that. This belligerent female Texas Liberal does not have that kind of class and patience. “Fuck off” is more where I tend to end up in that spectrum of possible responses.

I look forward to any and all investigations into this bullshit. There is no good outcome for Trump. If he was tapped it’s via a FISA warrant. If he wasn’t he looks even more like the utter loon he is. I have NO DOUBT whatsoever that the accusations against President Obama are a Brietbart/SMOTI fever dream.

A mob illegally entered the Bilgi University campus in central Istanbul to attack students marking International Women’s Day on March 8.

The university confirmed in a statement that a group of 15 to 20 jumped over the gates of the santralistanbul campus to attack the students, chanting “Allahu akbar” (God is great).

A number of the students and security officers on campus were beaten by the mob, with one student injured, the statement added.

Six of the attackers were detained by police who arrived at the scene.

The university stated that it has launched legal action against the attackers and initiated a disciplinary process for students who joined the attackers.

A threat to their masculinity combined with religious fervor has deadly consequences, as evident here. Islamophobes will have a field day with this, if they’re not already.

Schilling critical of R.I. state police probe into 38 Studios

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Curt Schilling blasted the Rhode Island State Police investigation for its lack of interviews with three key players in the state’s doomed investment in his 38 Studios video-game company — then-House Speaker Gordon Fox, former House Speaker William Murphy and tax-credit broker Michael D. Corso.

In an interview with The Providence Journal, Schilling said he was incredulous when documents released by the state police showed those names missing from the interview list.

Last summer, the state police and attorney general’s office announced that no criminal charges would be filed after a four-year investigation into the state’s $75-million loan deal for 38 Studios. Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin said investigators examined whether there were kickbacks, quid pro quos or financial crimes. The FBI looked into bank fraud.

Released last week, the police investigation said: “Representative Gordon Fox was not contacted at the request of his attorney, William Murphy. Representative William Murphy did not want to answer questions due to his representation of Gordon Fox.”

“Here’s where it goes off the rails,” Schilling said. “Are you [expletive] kidding me that Gordon Fox and Speaker Murphy weren’t interviewed? When I was interviewed by the state police, I was told in no uncertain terms that there was no doubt there was criminal activity … but they couldn’t find it.”

Schilling said he stopped reading when he saw no interviews with Fox or Corso, the broker who helped bring 38 Studios to Providence through his 20-year friendship with Fox.

“It’s the American Health Care Act, and I think it’s aptly named that for that reason. It wants everybody to have access to coverage, and that didn’t happen under ObamaCare,” she said.

“I’ll call it ‘TrumpCare’ if you want to, but I didn’t hear President Trump say to any of us: ‘I want my name on that.’ It’s not about branding according to someone’s name — it’s serious business.”

Well shit, Kelly, if we’re insisting on proper names, then it’s the Affordable Care Act. You nitwits dubbed it “Obamacare” because you figured it would fail before 2012 and calling it such would give Willard an edge. Then you kept calling it that because you believed it would prove so unpopular that repealing it would be a cakewalk.

Therefore, in his honor, I move we rename the healthcare bill “The World Series of American Healthcare Act.” It sounds better than the current name.

Was on Facebook earlier and had someone trying to “patiently” explain to me why the Republican plan for health care was a better choice than the ACA.

This is a person that has never read an original source document or had an original thought in their lives. Their argument was all urban legend and hyperbole without one single fact.

I asked for them to provide me with one single way that this bill will improve the ACA. I got, “You’re not going to listen to anything I have to say, you’re a liberal.”

I responded with, “Thanks! I now have a new term for people who defend Trump’s policies in a condescending, fact-free way because my little ol’ brain can’t understand his brilliance! Trumpsplaining! You are a Trumpsplainer!”

He was not amused with my own verbal brilliance.

And we all have those people in our lives that are Trump supporters that do this. They want to “patiently explain” to Democrats Trump’s value and master plan. Which implies we don’t know what we’re talking about.

Let’s face it, folks. Trump and the GOP are already doing serious, lasting damage to this country. I don’t think the US will ever be the same even if he’s forced to resign or impeached.

I do worry that some of the damage will be permanent or take decades to repair…

People are going to die

From lack of medical care that they can no longer afford

From attacks by racists/xenophobes emboldened by Trump’s rhetoric and abetted or ignored by LEO’s

And in unnecessary wars that he starts to distract attention when things start getting too hot for him.

This fellow Gianforte running in Montana also is a big donor to Focus on the Family, and owns a private school called Petra Academy in Bozeman.

The school is under fire for discriminating against disabled students.

Amongst other things, the school notes:

These are the conditions that can keep a student from entering Petra and which permit a student’s expulsion from the school:

Learning Disabilities, Mental Retardation, Autism, Emotional or Behavioral Disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Gifted, or Physical Disabilities. For the purpose of this policy, it is not important whether or not the condition was accurately diagnosed and is a genuine disability or exceptionality.

(copied from the parent handbook of the school)

Also:

If it becomes apparent that a child has a severe disability/exceptionality the parents will need to withdraw the student in order to obtain proper assistance for him/her.
Children with a mild disability/exceptionality will be given the same amount of individual instruction and encouragement as their classmates.
minor accommodations shall not necessitate appreciable time commitments from the teacher(s) outside of what is normally needed for students without mild disability/exceptionality.
If after implementing minor accommodations in a particular situation, the Headmaster determines that it is not in the best interest of the school and/or the child to continue, the Headmaster may discontinue the same, at his discretion. If needed, he may also ask the parents to withdraw the student in order to obtain proper assistance for him/her.

Not as bad as when I had an opossum crawl between the floorboards and ceiling of my house between the first and second floor in Florida (about a four-inch height), then get stuck and die.

For days after it started putrefying under my floor the house started smelling of rotting carcass. I finally found where it was coming from (I was spending whole days trying to find what the heck caused that monumental stink) by shining a flashlight between the floor and ceiling.

Couldn’t fish it out that way (liquefied and too far to reach). I had to saw out a section of my second floor to get the remnants of the opossum out, followed by several gallons of bleach and leaving the windows open for about a month.

ABC6 Columbus - No bull: Sussi on the “moove” to catch suspected meat thieves

Iframe

Did you know there’s a black market for meat?

When it comes to the $60 billion worth of merchandise stolen annually in shoplifting, meat ranks high on thieves’ lists. As a result, retailers pass along those losses to you, the consumer.

Recently, Columbus City Attorney’s Office contacted reached to ABC 6/FOX 28 to help expose the problem and track down four carnivorous crooks with outstanding warrants.

So, 6 On Your Side Investigator Tom Sussi went undercover, disguised as a cow, to track down these four suspects:

Richie Staley allegedly stole more than $300 worth of Angus whole tenderloin
Dale Fritz allegedly stole nearly $500 worth of steak
Sierra Malone allegedly stole $528 worth of Red Bull and meat
Rodney Hartley allegedly stole $118 worth of pork tenderloin and beef roasts

*It’s my understanding under the non-proliferation treaty, if you signed it and don’t have nuclear weapons, you can’t develop them or you face massive economic sanctions from pretty much every other country in the world.

Chabot: “It’s my opinion that such discussions would get China’s attention, and that China might finally put pressure on North Korea to back off.”

It would certainly get their attention, but the response would more likely be to exponentially ramp up their own nuclear program, which has had a low priority in recent years.

King Salman Bin Abdul-Aziz of Saudi Arabia is leading an entourage, including 25 senior princes and 10 ministers, to China later this month, part of a month-long tour of the Asia-Pacific, as the kingdom is seeking to hedge against an unpredictable and divided White House.

While it yearns for a renewed American role in the Middle East and reassurances from President Trump that Riyadh remains an ally, Saudi Arabia now faces a period of uncertainty due to the unpredictability of Trump’s foreign policy stance. That reason alone could explain why a trip to Beijing was planned before a trip to Washington.

Despite its efforts at economic diversification, Saudi Arabia will remain dependent on oil exports for a long time, and China provides the kingdom with a stable market for its energy exports for decades to come.

Was on Facebook earlier and had someone trying to “patiently” explain to me why the Republican plan for health care was a better choice than the ACA.

This is a person that has never read an original source document or had an original thought in their lives. Their argument was all urban legend and hyperbole without one single fact.

I asked for them to provide me with one single way that this bill will improve the ACA. I got, “You’re not going to listen to anything I have to say, you’re a liberal.”

I responded with, “Thanks! I now have a new term for people who defend Trump’s policies in a condescending, fact-free way because my little ol’ brain can’t understand his brilliance! Trumpsplaining! You are a Trumpsplainer!”

What relationship? I assume President Obama was too polite to tell Trump how he truly feels about him during Trump’s post-election White House visit. Why should there be any relationship between a racist who claimed that President Obama wasn’t eligible to hold his office and a decent, successful man like POTUS 44?

I doubt Trump has many relationships where he shows the other party any respect or empathy. He’s the exact opposite of President Obama.

President Obama argued with the GOP for a new AUMF that was updated to current conditions and they wouldn’t do it.

The GOP has entirely abdicated its power and duty in Congress to declare war and make peace.

This idea had to come from President Bannon. The GOP will play right along, because they need dead heroes and grieving widows and children (just like Nixon did getting my own father killed) to deflect attention from their RyanNoCare insurance plan and gutting the social safety net.

I guess they thought he would just fuck over the other guy, not them. How can anyone who has spent more than 2 minutes reviewing Trump’s career have come to that conclusion?

yeah, but those cattle and big grain farmers in flyover country don’t have to worry about not selling their products to coastal elites anymore since Hillary lost…

Honest to god, with every passing day I care less and less about those people who weren’t strong Trump supporters but voted for him anyway because they thought they’d give him a chance, or that we needed change, or whatever stupid reason they told themselves.

Every time someone does an interview with a bunch of them, they’re always saying they didn’t think he really meant it, or some damned thing. The information was out there for months. Any idiot could tell Trump not only lies incessantly, but also that he’s really dumb as a fucking stump, and completely uninterested in becoming less dumb. And they voted for him anyway because reasons.

See Sinclair Media Group. Little or no Internet. Consistently right-leaning newspapers.

Conservatives have been playing the long game on propaganda, and it’s a helluva drug.

Now with the attempt to get rid of Net Neutrality, Websites not financed by billionaires and corporations are in real danger.

Did some Trump voters vote out of bigotry? Absolutely! Did all of them? No.

My newspaper today is reporting on why the Wikileaks information might be true.

Maybe some rich billionaire liberals would be interested in building something akin to Radio Free Heartland?

[Embedded content]

Huntsman family has business interests in Russia, so it’s all good…

The Huntsman family has had its own business ties in Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union, and Huntsman International LLC operates six businesses in the country, including plants creating pigments and polyurethanes.

Huntsman was involved in the family’s early business dealings in Moscow. The chemical empire, led by family patriarch Jon Huntsman Sr., was among the first U.S. companies that sought business ties after the end of the Cold War. Huntsman Sr. withdrew his business when Russia slapped retroactive taxes and penalties on companies.

“Our intent was to create a microcosm of free-market activity in the Soviet Union,” the younger Jon Huntsman, then-vice chairman of the Huntsman Group, told The Salt Lake Tribune in 1994. “Right now, the situation makes it too difficult to proceed. If the environment improves, we will look at it again.”

Not to put too fine a point on it, but Trump didn’t win because people in the middle of nowhere didn’t have access to the information. Those places weren’t going to go for Clinton in any case. The voters who swung it for Trump were the folks in places that have cable, and have internet, and who thus had access to all the information they needed. They’re just too stupid to properly evaluate it.

And sure, you could call me elitist, or say my attitude is why Trump won, but really - Trump won because a lot of America is dumb enough to vote for him.

Those guns will be heavily defended by Marines who aren’t going to let the bad guys anywhere near those guns. In the opening moves against Mosul last spring a similar unit had only one casualty (rocket attack) the entire time they were there.

It doesn’t matter if Hillary Clinton won by ten million votes or twenty million votes in New York and California. What matters is she lost by the Electoral College vote.

I wonder how many of the people in those states who didn’t vote at all just stayed away from the decades of “both parties are the same” crap.

Too bad a few tens of thousands of non-voters in three states couldn’t be bothered because they looked at Trump and Clinton and saw two sides of the same coin.

Can I start a GoFundMe for Radio Free Heartland?

My newspaper today has nothing but Wikileaks and why they are true. It has not covered the Russia issue. The local television stations do not either.

You want to tell me where people in places like this that exist all over the country should get their information? Perhaps we should have some sort of screening process for voters perhaps, to ensure they are informed on the issues? Maybe, I don’t know, a test perhaps?

Like it or not, square miles do matter in our system. Since that system is not going away, perhaps focusing on those who don’t vote at all might be a worthwhile strategy.

But okay, I live in a state of stupid people I guess. That’ll win a lot of votes.

Yep. And that’s why we’re fucked. Because if you appeal to their better natures, and tell them the truth, they’ll vote for the other guy who appeals to their hate and fear and promises them what they know is impossible.

We’re fucked until we can outnumber them and undo the things that give them that power - gerrymandering, the Electoral College, etc.

Sorry to be so harsh, but I grew up in a rural, conservative county, and guess what? Those people were stupid and uninformed.”

While I was preparing my dinner last week, something entered my mind as I was thinking about Trump and those who voted for him. I reached the conclusion that, to a certain extent, his supporters voted for him because they like being entertained and not because they were looking for someone to be a good leader for the nation. I was recalling the way they behaved at his rallies when he would say stupid sh*t and make outrageous claims. They lapped it up and wanted more. They were being entertained by a 1st Class BS artist. I read an article in the LA Times earlier today about a woman who voted for Trump and is now in danger of losing her healthcare coverage. She’s also a cancer survivor. She told the LAT journalist that she thought Trump’s talk was just “bluster.” Well, she’s about to find out the hard way that when a GOP politician talks about destroying a law simply because its party didn’t pass it, they’re deadly serious about doing it.
