Meanwhile, the media has demanded no proof about the Russia nonsense, for which no evidence has been produced after almost a year of fishing by the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign (one and the same).
It is clear what happened. The Obama administration used the Russia ruse as an excuse to conduct surveillance on the campaign of the opposing party's presidential candidate.Read more
I'll throw my hat into the ring, as this plot rivals some of the best fiction I've ever read.
1. The Comey/Clinton "investigation" had its intended effect - it gave the appearance that Comey was an impartial participant at worst, and anti-Clinton as best. Pure, unadulterated smokescreen, and one of the best ones I've ever seen.
Of course, we know this wasn't remotely possible, as Comey's immediate family was financially benefitting from the Clinton Foundation. It was pure smokescreen because...Read more
I do not know what the facts are, yet. The facts that are apparent to me are the Media Assault on Trump, period.
1. Trump makes a seemingly unsubstantiated claim.
2. Trump refuses to back down on the claim (Usual for him)
3. Trump requests an investigation of his claims (NOT usual for him)
4. MSM and the entire establishment, rather than investigating claims, call Trump a liar and demand he retract and apologize.
The real story here—and it's frustrating, to say the least, that it is not emphasized—is that the actions of Attorney General Lynch, in dramatically relaxing the dissemination of raw surveillance data in the last few weeks of the Obama administration, cannot possibly have been anything but an act intended to unmask the identities of Trump et al. to the public.
Of course the media would rather commit mass suicide than investigate that crime.Read more
It was reported January that one of Obama's last executive orders included dissemination of NSA intelligence without restrictions of personally identifiable information? How is that not front and center in this discussion?
How can so many unambiguous statements be contrary to common sense and be refuted days or hours later and it not be concluded that EVERYONE involved is a fearless liar.Read more
The public is being played for a fool over this surveillance issue. Shock, shock that there might be surveillance of Trump and/or it would have been done by the Brits? Give me a break.
I have been an avid, voracious hobby reader of all things espionage for decades. I have read for decades of the little trick of the NSA/CIA and GCHQ/MI6, getting around domestic spying restrictions by having the other country's agencies doing the spying.Read more
Steve Pieczenak is probably concerned that the activities of the CIA could destroy it for good. The CIA:
1). Amassed a huge surveillance network without mandate or oversight
2). Collected history's biggest collection of private information in one place; and then
3). Proceeded to lose control of its tools, and thus of ALL that information
What is clear remains: leave the f*ckers with no oversight, and they grow monstrous, freedom-infringing and obliterating at every step.
1) CIA contracted over 5000 people to make exploits. This, right there, is reason enough to stop funding to "just enough to function". The more ego-prone humans you give access to "secret hacker materials", the greater the chance something will leak.
Where are the records to background checks, clearances, confirmed identities, personal information, etc of these 5000+ people? Who was in charge of oversight and security/access levels, if any?Read more
Trump is scary, that is just true, yet I find myself joining the foray and on his side at times because the whole system is so corrupt that we might need a wrecking ball to spread all the bits to the wind.
There may not be a way in the system to correct the system because it is too far gone.Read more
LAWNEWZ.COM: ”FISA strictly segregates its surveilled information into two categories: highly confidential information of the most serious of crimes involving foreign acts of war; or, if not that, then information that should never have been gathered, should be immediately deleted, and never sourced nor disseminated. It cannot be both.
Recognizing this information did not fit FISA, meant having to delete it and destroy it.Read more
