So apart from the parts were Obama was supposed to have ordered it illegally, and that it was supposedly Trump tower that was bugged, and that it was Russians being wiretapped, the rest was all true!

:lol:

Strange that it is widely reported that the Obama administration requested twice FISA warrants to wire tap Trump, the first being denied in July, and the second being granted in October.

The fake news is tripping over itself talking out of both sides of its mouth.

I'm about 95% sure that you specifically know this already, and are just repeating bullshit in order to perpetuate it. But I'll just point out that for the most part, and in this case specifically, Snopes is just a shortcut. They're not doing any research you couldn't do yourself. They cite their sources, and you can look at them yourself and see that the claims in those two articles are completely different things.

And, of course, if you've been following those stories, you'd already know that. I could see a reasonably informed person being confused if this were something that happened several years ago, but these are current, ongoing events that came up in recent WEEKS, and it's pretty telling that people are so grossly uninformed about actual current events that any of them wouldn't just know that without fact checking.

The whole "Snopes is a liberal propaganda machine" argument is kind of ridiculous. They don't just go around issuing proclamations. In most cases, they're just putting the information in one place where you can refer to it. Anyone who tells people not to trust Snopes is just trying to convince other low-information people to stay uninformed.

Snopes outright lies:

FACT CHECK: Did Democrats Refuse to Stand for a Navy SEAL's Widow?

There is video evidence that anyone can look at themselves to see its an outright lie. Anyone watching it could see it is a lie. In fact, whilst watching with my daughters, my youngest asked why those people were not standing and clapping...

Snopes is used to propagandized low information people with false information.

I can admit when I'm wrong, Jerome. Maybe you really are stupid enough to believe this stuff.

While risking the edges of mansplaining, also known as: Not propaganda, no propaganda, YOU'RE the propaganda!

From a two bit hack of a propaganist book huckster.

Nope. It was the FBI, Jerome. The same FBI that was handily dropping bits of news about Clinton that really messed up her campaign.

So - Obama, who controls the FBI, was simultaneously trying to making sure Clinton did not win AND ordering wiretaps on Trump to also sabotage his campaign. And all the people I mentioned are also all in the same fascist gang.

Can we have some sort of diagram or flowchart of all your conspiracies, Jerome?

lol, the FBI shielded Clinton from her crimes, it was her crimes that made her look bad to the electorate.

You never hear about billionaires stealthily trying to conjure up a constitutional convention. I've been hearing about this for at least two years on non MSM news. I think it's a real thing, there is really a scheme to gain enough state power to rewrite the constitution.

If I'm right and the MSM is completely missing the story, then they suck. It's possible they actually do cover the story from time to time, but I just missed it. I don't really read the major papers or news magazines like I used to.

Quote:
A few years ago, it would have been a thought experiment; now it's nearly reality. Billionaires and the groups they fund are working to rewrite our Constitution to provide corprations and the rich with more and more protections and benefits, and chop away at anything smelling of “socialism” like Social Security or child labor laws.

The fact is that they're just a few states away from meeting their goal, and have already held dress rehearsals in Washington D.C.—with representatives from all 50 states—for a Constitional Convention that would change America forever.
This seems like it ought to be large news to me, but yeah...
