Rush: Obama ‘Weaponized’ America’s Spies Against Trump’s Team [Listen]

Jack Davis, Western Journalism

"It’s becoming increasingly clear..."

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Monday boiled down the complex web of surveillance stories regarding the Trump team into one simple concept: the Obama administration declared a very secret war on President Donald Trump using America’s intelligence services as his weapon.

Trump first alerted America to the surveillance issue when he tweeted on March 4 that he was “wiretapped” by former President Barack Obama. Trump’s claims were initially met with denials. However, it was reported on Monday that Obama’s former national security adviser, Susan Rice, played a heretofore-unannounced role by “unmasking” the identities of Trump associates whose communications were incidental by-products of the surveillance.

Limbaugh said that this latest detail reveals a conspiracy of epic proportions.

“But the real scandal here — and it’s becoming increasingly clear — is that the Obama administration weaponized politically our intelligence services against the Republicans and against Trump. I, for one, am not surprised,” he said.

“We know that the Obama Regime surveilled Trump’s transition team. We know now that the Obama White House unmasked people who were not targets of legitimate surveillance and investigation. We know now that the Obama White House illegal leaked protected information,” he said.

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
