Revealed Obama Campaign Hired
Fusion GPS To Investigate Romney

Daily Caller, by Chuck Ross

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/13/2018 2:51:35 PM

The Barack Obama presidential campaign hired Fusion GPS in 2012 to dig up dirt on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, according to a book released on Tuesday. The Obama campaign hid its payments to Fusion GPS through its law firm, Perkins Coie. The arrangement is similar to the one that the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee used to pay Fusion for its investigation of then-aDonald Trump in 2016. Dossier ‘coincidences’ pile up (Snip)“In 2012, Fusion GPS was hired to do opposition research on Mitt Romney for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign,” reads “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War

Comments:
My oh my! Look who first hired Fusion GPS! I wonder if Isicoff and Corn will be extremely upset that they published this information. This sure isn´t helpful for Democrats. I don´t remember that massive ´tell all´ article of Jane Mayer pointing out the connection between Obama and Fusion GPS. All along we have known that Obama´s fingerprints are all over this. It never would have been done without his approval.

Mittens will probably apologize for his close friend, Obama, and excoriate Trump for his reckless language or some such nonsense.

FTA: "The Obama for America committee paid Perkins Coie around $3 million during the 2012 election cycle, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission, A vast majority of the payments were earmarked for “Legal Services.”


FTA: "Perkins Coie received more than $12 million from the Clinton campaign and DNC during the 2016 election cycle."

Perkins Coie sure made a killing off of dirty work didn´t they. It is shocking to me that Isicoff and Corn would publish such information. I wonder if they will be shunned by their comrades in the media. Is Fusion GPS who found out about Romney´s dog or the binder of women? What a bunch of hogwash that was.

Must be how they found out about the dog and the haircut.

Well doesn´t that make it less and less believable that the Bamster wasn´t involved and or aware of the same team going after Trump.

I´m sure this isn´t the only dirty trick they pulled. As you may recall Romney´s get-out-the-vote system went down in every swing state on election day. In a very odd result, Obama was re-elected with a smaller margin of victory than in 2008.

It was the report of an unreturned library book that caused Mittens to tank his campaign, lest it be exposed and his reputation suffer. Now that he´s running as a "Democrat" things will be better.

They sure didn´t get much on Romney for their $12million, did they?

In criminal trials — such as the ones Obama, both Clintons, Glenn Simpson and others too numerous to mention will face in the not so distant future — this kind of news is called “evidence of the defendant’s pattern or practice”.

No secret here, Obama STOLE his 2nd presi-dential election. There were a number of voters at polling sites who reported that numerous paper ballots were handed out to minority voters right in front of them!! Since the observers were WHITE, they were given only one, not 7 or 8. When heavily Dem areas total votes were tabulated, they actually numbered more than the total of eligible voters. Now how did they do that?!!

It´s a crime that the GOP didn´t demand that ALL of Fusion GPS´s records be turned over to Congress for review. We all know how that worked out... to Fusion´s advantage.

Keith Olbermann is expanding his role at ESPN — but it was nearly even bigger. The largest aspect of Olbermann’s expanded role with ESPN is that he will co-host around 20 “SportsCenter” 11 p.m. shows. Olbermann’s rise to national prominence came when he and his partner, Dan Patrick, hosted the program they dubbed “The Big Show.” Sources said ESPN considered offering Olbermann the full-time 6 p.m. “SportsCenter” show, but ultimately decided against it for a variety of reasons, including logistics, as the show will continue in Bristol and Olbermann lives in New York. The 6 p.m. show ultimately went to

Obama’s former DNI Chief James Clapper told CNN last Thursday “it was a good thing” the FBI was spying on Trump’s campaign. This was after he initially denied the Intelligence Community was spying on Donald Trump. Clapper told CNN it was a good thing if the FBI had someone “observing” the Trump’s campaigns interaction with the Russians because the “Russians posed a threat to the very basis of our political system.” (Snip) Now this… Clapper is continuing to change his story. Today he told Axios the deep state spying on Trump was actually “Benign version of information gathering.” Via Zero Hedge:

The FBI Spied for LBJ’s Campaign
Wall Street Journal, by Lee Edwards    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/25/2018 6:34:43     Post Reply
Is it unthinkable that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would spy on a presidential campaign for political purposes? I can personally attest that it has happened before—during Barry Goldwater’s 1964 campaign. Every poll agreed that President Lyndon B. Johnson would easily win the election against the conservative Sen. Goldwater of Arizona. But LBJ wanted a landslide so he could implement his Great Society vision without resistance and go down in history as one of America’s greatest presidents. (Snip) Thus was born Johnson’s “Anti-Campaign” to smear Goldwater’s candidacy. The operation was run from the second floor of the West Wing by

Far-left Parkland activists threw themselves on the floor of a Florida grocery store on Friday, screaming and yelling for customers to boycott the store because of political donations that it had made. The "die-in" was organized by far-left activist and provocateur David Hogg, who has launched multiple boycotts aimed at those who support the NRA or who criticize him. (Snip) CBS News reported that Publix caved to the leftist pressure and intimidation tactics, announcing that they have decided to "suspend corporate-funded political contributions as we reevaluate our giving processes."

Former White House adviser Anthony Scaramucci said Friday he won´t to a cable TV show with Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti, and joked that one reason why is because Avenatti is bald. "I´m not doing a TV show with Avenatti, no," Scaramucci said on "Fox and Friends." "I like people with a full head of hair." (Snip) A TV executive reportedly pitched the idea of a political show starting the two outspoken spokesmen, but Avenatti said he has "no interest in television right now," even though he has appeared on TV dozens and dozens of times over the last month.

CNN reported Thursday that investigators have asked associates of Stone, an informal adviser to Trump´s 2016 campaign, about his finances, including Stone´s tax returns. Stone told CNN that investigators were apparently "combing through" his personal life, including business affairs, but claimed it was because they lacked evidence of collusion.

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns. Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Florida-based supermarket chain Publix announced Friday that corporate-backed political contributions will be suspended “as we reevaluate our giving processes” – an announcement that came shortly before Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg’s “die-in” protest. In response to the revelation earlier this month that Publix donated $670,000 to Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, Hogg organized the “die-in” protest to occur at a Publix in Coral Springs on Friday where participants were instructed to lie down in the store for 12 minutes. Shortly before the protest was set to begin at 4 p.m., Publix issued a statement regarding the suspension of corporate-funded

Democrats and their media allies are again shouting “constitutional crisis,” this time claiming President Trump has waded too far into the Russia investigation. The howls are a diversion from the actual crisis: the Justice Department’s unprecedented contempt for duly elected representatives, and the lasting harm it is doing to law enforcement and to the department’s relationship with Congress. The conceit of those claiming Mr. Trump has crossed some line in ordering the Justice Department to comply with oversight is that “investigators” are beyond question.
