John Hayward Nails It – Trump’s Tweets Force Media To Put Up, or Shut Up – (W/Kellyanne Conway Interview)…


March 5th, 2017 – Statement from the Press Secretary

“Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are troubling.

President Donald J Trump is requesting that as part of their investigations into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive brance investigative powers were abused in 2016.

Neither the White House nor the President will comment further until such oversight is conducted.” ~ Office of the President

John Hayward at Breitbart News accurately puts the intention of the President Trump administration into context.


[…]  It’s possible one reason Trump issued his explosive tweets on surveillance was to make everyone put up or shut up. That might already be working, as some of the more aggressive dealers in unsubstantiated innuendo are suddenly admitting they don’t have any actual evidence. There can’t be any hard evidence if Trump is super-duper wrong about Obama administration surveillance:

The Walkbacks Begin – WATCH


Until now, Democrats and their media have been pleased to create the impression that all kinds of wiretapping operations were conducted against the Trump campaign, uncovering many scandalous, possibly illegal connections. Only by reading those articles carefully does one discover the sources are highly speculative and the evidence is thin at best.

[…] Whatever President Trump’s intentions were in using Twitter to touch off this firestorm, one of the immediate effects has been letting the gas out of all those speculative Trump stories. The Democratic media is now furiously working to prove all of its own previous coverage of the Trump-Russia allegations was little more than idle speculation, every bit as lacking in hard evidence as Trump’s accusation that Obama was tapping his phones.

After months of unfounded allegations and badly sourced speculation intended to cripple his administration, maybe Trump wanted to prove that only one side of the partisan divide is permitted to make “wild allegations.” Obama’s plants in the Deep State can leak whatever they please, law and truth be damned. They can get an avalanche of hostile coverage moving with a few phone calls or emails. The media feels no contrition when the story turns out to be exaggerated or completely false, eagerly turning to the same Obama holdovers as sources for the next big phony scoop.

No one on Trump’s team, including the president himself, is allowed to reciprocate in kind. We are meant to feel bottomless outrage that Trump would level unsubstantiated allegations against Obama, but apparently, Obama’s minions can launch a constant barrage of unsubstantiated allegations against Trump.

Intentionally or accidentally, Trump just forced the press to admit how weak the bulk of those allegations were.  (read more)

Read the full article at Breitbart and I think you’ll discover the entire reason for the current situation and President Trump’s response therein.  Additionally, the latest interview with Kellyanne Conway provides more confidence the outline of motive is entirely accurate.  WATCH:

    Excellent Tyler Durden article on Zero Hedge this AM on the “Wiretapping”. I have to say I feel that Trump’s tweet in July referenced there saying, “Russia, if you’re listening, release the 33,000 Hillary emails” or the like was a serious mistake:

      This is analogous to their claim that there was election fraud … but not being willing to spend any money to investigate vote fraud. They want the benefit of the [spurious] allegations.

        Yet, in October 2016, Obama told Trump to ‘stop whining’ about ‘mythical’ voter fraud:

        “It doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness you want in a president,” Obama said. “You start whining before the game is even over? If whenever things are going badly for you, and you lose, you start blaming somebody else? Then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.”


        ‘At a news conference in the White House Rose Garden, Mr. Obama said, “I have never seen in my lifetime, or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before votes have even taken place.”’

    I think this is how this line should have been stated.

    Obama was counting on Hillary being elected believing whatever illegalities he and his administration committed would be covered up. Oops!

    I have long thought that attacks on journalists were a clear signpost that a society’s basic underpinnings of freedom was being attacked.

    Not anymore, and I AM NOT calling for it.

    But if some outraged American finally lost it and physically assaulted a Jake Tapper for example, I would regard that as street justice meted out to a Deep State operative who is trying to boldly lie about his job in order to to the bidding of the Deep State. A Quisling.

    I would not associate it to an attack on journalism.

    I read the Hayward article before coming to CTH and it makes perfect sense. Glad to see CTH used it in this post.

    The Dems/Media/FBI/NSA etc are in quite a quandary as I see it….When Trump demands the documentation on the FISA and the signatures that signed off on it- this will expose the whole charade. Do it Mr.l President. DO it. Rub their lying faces in it. This stuff does not happen in a vacuum….. Swamp draining is a complicated business… Any Doctor will tell you in order to remedy a boil– lancing is the first step….only then can it heal.

    So let me get this straight all the HUMONGOUS ‘The RUSSKIES’ are coming’ scare stories the ‘Media’ and the DemoncRATS have been touting for MONTHS now are just FAKE NEWS based on NOTHING at all. That is their ADMISSION and the ONLY thing that can be said about this Debacle for the Media the DemoncRATS and Obi-Wan Nairobi. But of course they have just confirmed they are LIARS so NOTHING they now say can be believed.They are either LIARS or DAMN LIARS.

    The key to the Trump wire tapping is not all these red herrings about whether a “FISA warrant” was ordered, and whether it was ordered by Obama, etc. That’s not how they tapped him.

    They is the NSA and “they” tapped him the same way they tap all of our phone calls — using the NSA’s massive vacuum cleaner of all phone, email and internet data and also the older UK/USA Agreement (known as Five Eyes, whereby GCHQ, the UK’s version of the NSA, eavesdrops on us while our NSA eavesdrops on the Brits and the two governments share each other’s data, so the USG isn’t technically wire tapping its own citizens).

    This article in Breitbart on February 15th features the revelation from William Binney, the 30-year NSA veteran who designed the agency’s massive eavesdropping system, that ALL digital data — from Donald Trump’s phone calls on down to this email — is intercepted, recorded and stored in giant digital depots, where it can be data-mined for later use (e.g. transcripts of targeted communications can be leaked to the press to advance political objectives). Binney, who was just on Hannity this evening, maintains that this is all done routinely and without a warrant or FISA court application. His allegations aren’t new but they need to be reviewed in light of the current controversy.

    When he originally designed Thin Thread, the massive eavesdropping system on which the current NSA system is based, Binney included a privacy protection so that all data was encrypted and the only way it could be decrypted was with a warrant (based on probable cause). A supporter of Constitutional government, he was satisfied that this would help prevent abuses of the program.

    Unfortunately, the NSA leadership omitted the privacy protections and went for total access to all data, no warrant required. See this extraordinary New Yorker article in which retired Congresswoman Diane Roark of the House Intel Committee recounts the then NSA head, Michael Hayden, admission to her that they left out the privacy protections because, after September 11th, “We didn’t need them. We had the power”. The article is about yet another NSA whistleblower, Thomas Drake, but includes extensive background on William Binney and his explosive revelations.

    So all the media focus on FISA warrants is likely a diversion from the real story, involving routine use of illegal and unconstitutional, warrantless surveillance of all digital communications of US citizens, including then-candidate, Donald J. Trump. Maybe, unlike the Snowden revelations of 2013, this scandal can actually result in a restoration of constitutional protections from unwarranted mass surveillance.

    [Note: for further reading on this topic try this transcript of a 2008 interview with NSA expert and author, James Bamford by Terry Gross of NPR’s Fresh Air :

    And when I wrote “Body of Secrets,” my previous book, I thought NSA was obeying the law. Well, actually, it was obeying the law. The book came out in May of 2001. What really shocked me is when I found out that NSA had decided to bypass the law, or at least General Hayden had decided to go around the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and that’s what – one of the reasons I decided to write this book was because NSA had changed so much. It went from this agency that was very careful about Americans’ communications to an agency that’s focusing – that’s targeting these communications.]

    I didn’t see this thread. The Nunes press conference was like an episode of “who is on first.”

    Q: Why are you validating his tweets by investigating ? (Yes they basically asked this question)

    Nunes: bc for months you’ve all been saying “he was investigated.”

    Q: but why???????? Where is the proof? SMH
