The Justice Department says that there's no evidence of any wiretapping of Trump Tower by President Obama.
CNN wrote:
The Justice Department said in a court filing Friday evening that it has no evidence to support President Donald Trump's assertion in March that his predecessor, Barack Obama, wiretapped the phones in Trump Tower before last year's election.
"Both FBI and NSD confirm that they have no records related to wiretaps as described by the March 4, 2017 tweets," the department's motion reads. NSD refers to the department's national security division.
The motion came in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by a group pushing for government transparency, American Oversight.


I mean, who could have guessed that, right? Pretty much anyone aside from the usual Smiley: tinfoilhat

Hey now, that's almost 3x what Trump donated to help those hurricane people in Texas, so that must mean it's like double-plus huge or something.

He'll solicit donations through the Trump Foundation and then use the money to buy a gold plaque saying what a great job the Trump Foundation did at raising money for the hurricane victims.

Really he should just be telling them not to have "poor old me attitude" and fix their own problems. I hear it's the Christian thing to do.

If it helps, I read it poorly as well, as I focused on ***** and ignored racists.

Well, since we are distracting ourselves from the impending RL Fallout 1 allow me to question this retarded conversation we are, apparently, having.

KKK is not cool. They Westboro Baptist Church level of not cool. Maybe more. In fact, they are so not cool that it is ok to break the rules of engagement applicable to all other groups.It is ok to physically attack them. And if you dare to question this, you are defending them, which immediately makes you a bona fide member of KKK, racist, unamerican, and probably not human ie. a fair target.

Violence begets violence and pretty soon you have a situation, where 'false equivalency' is being thrown around like confetti at a wedding. And yet, it is the group that, however silly their beliefs are, had an orderly and legal gathering that is blamed; not the guys who had no legal ground to protest and just happened to come there specifically for a physical confrontation with a group they very much dislike. Go figure.

So remember kids. Violence is cool*.

*as long as you hurt people it is ok to hurt.

Faking tapdancing cryst, the society will dissolve mighty fast if CNN et al keeps pushing this point.

Just on the most basic and "should be the easiest to understand" level it is against the First Amendment to prevent people from counter-demonstrating and/or protesting. The government can't tell you to shut up, but it also can't stop other people from telling you to shut up.

And, you know, both groups were actually legally permitted to rally in the area by either city's consent or judge's order, yadda yadda facts and details yadda.

Maybe if the racists and assorted douchebags associated with them want to convince the rest of us that they are staging a "peaceful" rally they shouldn't have it while armed.

I know you're being silly, but I mean all the firearms.

I'm all for citizens having guns but let's maybe not bring them to "peaceful assemblies"?


If people want to bring glaive guisarmes and claymores and longbows and stuff, I'm all for that.

On the more serious side, I was actually a little curious because of the number of people showing up with homemade shields, pepper spray, and stuff like that. You know, fuzzy grey area and such.

Does said amendment specify tools of coercion used to induce people to shut up? Just curious.

If ifs and buts were candy and nuts.. we probably wouldn't be human. I purposefully did not use word peaceful, but it is interesting your mind went there.

Personally, and it is jus an unpopular opinion, by default when something is not forbidden, it is allowed.

So you tell me. I have no idea what you are trying to argue. That **** equal bad? If so then you are a little late to that party.

You're free to bring a sign, a bat, or even a rifle (obviously if the state in question allows open carry firearms) to a demonstration or a protest. It's when you use it that the government can step in to stop you. Which sucks if, you know, you're on the other side of a riot shield.

And that's less First Amendment and more Assault With A Deadly Weapon.
