OBAMAGATE ARCHIVE: Feb. 15 - April 2, 2017

To Live Blog

April 5, 2017


From "I know nothing about that" to "I leaked nothing to nobody" and "I disclosed nothing for political purposes" it is becoming clear what Susan Rice's role was in the unmasking of officials in the Trump team. We must keep two things in mind. The Democrats were convinced they were going to retain power. And political appointees like Rice, do not conduct any investigations. These are done by the FBI, the CIA and the NSA. Admiral Mike Rogers (NSA) and James Comey (FBI) have to explain to Congress how they could be involved in the unmasking of Americans on this scale! Clearly that is not as the law intended. Former NSA spook and Russophobe, John Schindler describes the procedure in a posting on the Observer.
(...) If you’re a top dog inside the Beltway, you would then ask the NSA to let you know who the mystery USP-3 is. There’s nothing sinister about this—it happens all the time in Washington. When the NSA receives a request to “unmask” that American’s identity, to use the proper spy-term, the Agency office which issued the report is asked if they’re ok with the unmasking. The request then goes up a chain, potentially as high as the NSA director, for final approval. As Admiral Mike Rogers, the Agency’s director, recently informed the House Intelligence Committee in open session, the number of NSA officials authorized to unmask USPs is only about 20—including the director himself. 
Neither is this any sort of rubber stamp. The NSA reserves the right to decline unmasking requests, if they think the request is inappropriate or would reveal sensitive intelligence sources and methods. Denials are hardly uncommon. Even if unmasking approval is granted, the USP’s identity is shared only with the requester, in top-secret channels, and cannot be shared more widely. At all times, the NSA retains control of the information and it must be protected per stringent Agency regulations. (...) 
Most of the reports in question involve senior officials of foreign governments discussing the still-forming Trump administration, including speculation about potential cabinet appointments. (...) Although it’s all but impossible to prove, if Rice asked for those identities for political—not national security—reasons, there’s a problem. Then there’s the possibility that she may not have adhered to NSA’s rigid rules about protecting the identities of those unmasked USPs. If she informed White House staffers without a need to know who those Americans were, the FBI may have something to investigate. (...) 
Susan Rice is a deeply unpopular figure with our Intelligence Community. Her abrasive personality and overall incompetence grated on the IC. Her habitually coarse language was inflicted on senior intelligence officials more than once, while nobody outside Obama’s inner circle considered Rice even marginally competent at her job. (...) Rice didn’t like to play by the rules, including the top-secret ones. On multiple occasions, she asked the NSA to do things they regarded as unethical and perhaps illegal. 
When she was turned down—the NSA fears breaking laws for any White House, since they know they will be left holding the bag in the end—Rice kept pushing. As a longtime NSA official who experienced Rice’s wrath more than once told me, “We tried to tell her to pound sand on some things, but it wasn’t allowed—we were always overruled.” On multiple occasions, Rice got top Agency leadership to approve things which NSA personnel on the front end of the spy business refused. This means there may be something Congress and the FBI need to investigate here. (Source)
In the interview above with NBC Rice describes routine requests for unmasking, so as to better understand the context of intelligence reports. But USP1, USP2, etc. are there for as very good reason! To protect Americans against overreaching statists like herself. Either she doesn't know (incompetence) or she doesn't care (abuse of power). If necessary she has Obama leaning on the NSA to unmask the Americans "incidentally collected" in the surveillance. Clearly this is against the spirit of the law.

The Democrats are harping on the "incidental collection" narrative because they like the "incidental" part. Truth is, the IC is well aware of another term: "reverse targetting", in which foreign agents are specifically surveilled for the sole purpose of targetting their American interlocaters. We can't put that past either the Obama White House or their politicized Intel agents.

If Rice did the unmasking, someone must have illegally disseminated and leaked it. If the report in the Daily Caller is true that Rice logged her highly classified information in a spreadsheet (which Rice denies), that would have contributed no end to this process. A lost or (intentionally) mislaid password would have done the trick of delivering Evelyn Farkas' idea of spreading as much information as possible among Obama loyalists and political appointees to sabotage the Trump presidency.

Rice's personality matters. From Schindler we learn she can be rude and abrasive. This is confirmed in a piece by Charles Johnson in which she is recorded as saying: "People know not to mess with me. And if they haven’t learned, and they try, then they will learn."  On the other hand she knows how to be a loyal servant, as witnessed by her lying four times on national television about the Benghazi attack.

Fox News reporter Malia Zimmerman thinks the shoe might well have been on the other foot. That someone in the IC prompted her to request the unmasking of the identities of the Trump campaigners. If Schindler is to be believed there are plenty of agents in the IC who may have orchestrated this coup.

UPDATE: It is now becoming clear why the Democrat Media Complex required a cover like "Russia hacked the elections for Trump". It is not just a psychological coping devize for the trolls to deal with the defeat. It is also an imperative for political reasons. How else could they justify the National Security Adviser unmasking (and possibly disseminating and leaking) the identities of private citizens and political opponents? It requires a matter of national security or a criminal investigation. Enter, "Russia hacked the elections". But Devin Nunes who viewed the information could not imagine a security relation or a connection with Russia. 

Justifications by the Democrat Media Complex come thick and fast. Breitbart:
Trump critics and former Obama NSC officials did not dispute the report, but argued that Rice did nothing “illegal.” Trump administration officials have not argued that unmasking was “illegal,” only that leaking to media the identities of those unmasked was illegal, which happened to then-incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. (More
The problem? Susan Rice herself denied it all only a 12 days ago.

Mar 22, 2017 Susan Rice on PBS. 
Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice had tough words in The Washington Post for President Trump and his administration on Wednesday, warning about the "profound dangers" of making false statements. In her first interview since leaving the White House, Rice joins Judy Woodruff to discuss the importance of U.S. credibility, as well as the intelligence probe into Russian interference.
What's more, the White House is not equiped to carry out any investigations. It requests the FBI, the CIA or the NSA to do probes on its behalf. So Susan Rice has no business being involved in this for legitimate reasons. The NSA has something to explain why they gave Rice access to this information. As John Bolton explained, the CI are the custodians of raw information. If the White House requests it, they will still have to come up with a darned good reason. There is a wall between the powers that has been breached here, at the expense of the privacy of citizens. 

A clear effort to change the subject is a red herring in WaPo yesterday, describing an intricate plot involving Erik Price, the founder of Blackwater and brother of Education Secretary Betsy Devos, exploring a back channel with a Putin aide on the Seychelles in January, facilitated by the Emirates. When you read pages and pages full of insinuations and innuendo and have Barry Faure, the Seychelles secretary of state for foreign affairs saying that the Seychelles is "ideal for clandestine gatherings" you know you're looking at a bunch of propaganda. (Source)

The Daily Caller is reporting today that Susan Rice ordered US spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president, according to former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova. (Source)

GateWay Pundit has a piece stating that the computer logs left behind show Rice's interest in gathering intelligence on Trump accelerated AFTER the election. (Source)

Of no small interest is how this story broke. Eli Lake is claiming the scoop, saying he has been reporting about it for a week (tweet). Presumably on Bloomberg. That's curious. We learnt about it on Sunday when Mike Cernovich exploded the bombshell. But is doesn't stop there! Zero Hedge:
Cernovich didn't need a 'deep throat' within the NSA or CIA for his blockbuster scoop, all he needed was some well-placed sources inside of a couple of America's corrupt mainstream media outlets. As Cernovich explains below, his sources for the Susan Rice story were actually folks working at Bloomberg and the New York Times who revealed that both Eli Lake (Bloomberg) and Maggie Haberman (NYT) were sitting on the Susan Rice story in order to protect the Obama administration. 
"Maggie Haberman had it. She will not run any articles that are critical of the Obama administration." "Eli Lake had it. He didn't want to run it and Bloomberg didn't want to run it because it vindicates Trump's claim that he had been spied upon. And Eli Lake is a 'never Trumper.' Bloomberg was a 'never Trump' publication."  (More)

Eli Lake on Bloomberg clarifies the latest revelation and makes a point of stating that Rice's unmasking requests "do not vindicate Trump's own tweets from March 4 in which he accused Obama of illegally tapping Trump Tower. There remains no evidence to support that claim". This however is a ripe example of the stupidity of the power establishment. At the time we said that this is a Dutch technique known as "tossing a stick in to the hen house," causing the hens to fly up, revealing stuff that in normal circumstances would remain under wraps. It caused panic in the ranks, triggered a number of investigations, culminating now in the outing of the Top Obama Official, National Security Adviser Susan Rice.  The President is very adept at this kind of stuff, running circles around the poor, hapless bureaucrats.

Top Obama Adviser Sought Names of Trump Associates in Intel 

White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter. The pattern of Rice's requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government's policy on "unmasking" the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. (...) The National Security Council's senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review (...)

In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice's multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel's office, who reviewed more of Rice's requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy. The intelligence reports were summaries of monitored conversations -- primarily between foreign officials discussing the Trump transition, but also in some cases direct contact between members of the Trump team and monitored foreign officials. One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration. Rice did not respond to an email seeking comment on Monday morning. (More)


Mike Cernovich outed Susan Rice yesterday as the person high up in the Obama regime who signed off on the unmasking of General Flynn and other Trump campaign officials. The reasoning behind this conclusion is the following: the three persons who were authorised to order the unmasking were cross checked against the persons who logged into the secret documents. This matches the name of Susan Rice. Here's the story:
Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report. The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them. 

Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes. (...) Three people close to President Obama, including his “fall guy” for Benghazi (Susan Rice), had authorization to unmask. Among those cleared to request and consume unmasked NSA-based intelligence reports about U.S. citizens were Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice, his CIA Director John Brennan and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch. (...) 
According to WaPo, there were three sources for the reports, with Michael Ellis ultimately being blamed by WaPo and AP. What’s striking about the Times story is the spin it took. Trump had previously claimed he had been “wire tapped” (quotation marks in his original Tweet), leading to media screams that he prove it. The Times’ own reporting proves that President Trump and his associates were spied on. The Times, rather than admit Trump had been vindicated, instead focused its attention on the question of who leaked the reports to Nunes (...) 
Since when did journalists attempt to unmask sources? The Times, WaPo, and other outlets rely on anonymous sources in nearly every article about national security. It’s clear they have an agenda — that agenda is not telling the truth. This reporter has been informed that Maggie Haberman has had this story about Susan Rice for at least 48 hours, and has chosen to sit on it in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama.

Yesterday ranking Intel Democrat Adam Schiff went on the Sunday shows:

April 2, 2017


All the revelations about Obamagate must viewed from the prism that Obama and his intel officials thought they could freely  commit crimes against Trump because they thought Hillary would win and they would keep control of the Justice Dept. The Friday Fox News report cited a number of sources saying that Nunes knew of the information in January. The agencies where the information came from had blocked Nunes from gaining access to it. The two people in the White House named in Thursday’s reports as the sources of the information were not Nunes sources at all! The media have somehow managed to make this an argument to debunk or exculpate the crime. As it turned out, these two were not the source, but what would it have mattered? 

Nunes learned about this unmasking and who ordered it, back in January. It took a number of weeks to figure out a way for him to see this intelligence, because the agencies were stonewalling. Housley reported:
“This is all coming from folks that are in these agencies and frustrated with the politics that is taking place in these agencies. We’re told that the main issue here is not only the unmasking of the names, but the spreading of names for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security and everything to do with hurting and embarrassing Trump and his team.” 
The Fox report added that there were only two places where Nunes could have viewed the information. One was at the agencies where the information came from, which the reporting notes would have put the source at risk, and the other location was on the 18-acre White House grounds. Housley noted that the Old Executive Office Building is on White House grounds. 

Interesting is also the reaction of the ranking Democrat, Adam Schiff after he viewed the information for himself. Or rather, what Adam Schiff did not say. He didn't say that no crimes have been committed. That there was no spying on Trump. There was no wrong doing. No. He whined about the process. (Notice that when content is absent or unfavorable, the emphasis is on form.)

In the meantime Congressman Trey Gowdy (R- South Carolina) presented a federal judge with a witness list and set of affidavits asking for warrants to monitor and search the electronic communications of Barack Obama and Joe Biden along with several other key members of Obama’s secret regime. Gowdy will be putting together a new panel to investigate that will only include one Democrat since all of the others are listed as potential witnesses or defendants. Also included on the lost of possible defendants for treason are Speaker Paul Ryan and no less than 6 Republican senators and representatives. (More)

There have been unconfirmed tweets from reliable sources (among others from Dr. Corsi) that the unmasking and dissemination of the names of Trump and Co. has been ordered by the former Secretary for Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson. The Dept. of Homeland Security of course is a domestic service. Their mission isn't the collection of intel on foreign nationals. Which makes sense, since Trump was at the time a private American citizen and according to Nunes, the investigation had nothing to do with the surveillance of Russian agents. Standing by for confirmation. 

The Democrat ranking member of the House Intel Committee, Adam Schiff for his part yesterday visited the SCIF on the White House grounds that houses the safe computer. He couldn't comment on what he saw, but he's standing by his original standpoint that the intel should have been shared with the full committee, and that Nunes shouldn't have briefed the President (or something). 


Fox News has come out with a new report with multiple sources in the intelligence community that appears to vindicate Devin Nunes amid all of this scandalous and breathless media coverage. Here are a few of the highlights:

1. The surveillance that led to the unmasking started way BEFORE Trump was the GOP nominee.
2. The person who did the unmasking is very high up in the intelligence world and is not in the FBI.
3. The people reported by the NY Times were not Nunes sources. They only helped him navigate the intelligence.
4. Nunes was told about the unmasking of Trump’s team back in January BEFORE Trump’s tweet about Obama’s spying.
5. It took a while to coordinate Nunes seeing the intelligence reports in order to protect his source. They chose the White House because it was the only other location they could view the reporting without outing the source.
6. None of this has anything to do with Russia. (More)

The person who unmasked, or exposed Trump associates (private citizens) in intel reports is a “very high ranking senior intel official” according to Fox News sources. The person is NOT a member of the FBI. It is VERY RARE for an American citizen to be listed like this in intel docs. Typically, the American is a suspect in a crime, is in danger or has to be named to explain the context of the report. Reporter Adam Housley sent out a series of tweets on the breaking bombshell. The U.S. intelligence official who “unmasked,” or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone “very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world,” a source told Fox News on Friday. (...)

Nunes has known about the unmasking controversy since January, when two sources in the intelligence community approached him. The sources told Nunes who was responsible and at least one of the Trump team names that was unmasked. They also gave him serial numbers of reports that documented the activity. This was long before Trump sent out his now-infamous March 4 tweets claiming then-President Barack Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the 2016 election. Nunes had asked intelligence agencies to see the reports in question, but was stonewalled. He eventually was able to view them, but there was only one safe place to see the documents without compromising the sources’ identities — the old executive office building on White House grounds, which has a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) required to view classified or top secret reports.

The White House did not tell Nunes about the existence of the intelligence reports, but did help him gain access to the documents at his request, the source said. The White House, meanwhile, is urging Nunes and his colleagues to keep pursuing what improper surveillance and leaks may have occurred before Trump took office. They’ve been emboldened in the wake of March 2 comments from former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas, who on MSNBC suggested her former colleagues tried to gather material on Trump team contacts with Russia. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Friday her comments and other reports raise “serious” concerns about whether there was an “organized and widespread effort by the Obama administration to use and leak highly sensitive intelligence information for political purposes.” “Dr. Farkas’ admissions alone are devastating,” he said.

March 31, 2017


Adam Housley stresses in his last tweet that " sources are "not Trump people." They are "just frustrated with the politicalization of our intelligence agencies."


Mar 30, 2017 Hannity: Evelyn Farkas spins her own words. 

How Farkas got her information while working on the Hillary campaign is no longer a mystery. When Hillary Clinton resigned as Secretary of State in 2013, she negotiated continuing access to classified and top-secret documents for herself and six staffers under the designation "research assistants," according to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) who notes that Clinton was later deemed "extremely careless" with such information. The staff apparently retained access even after Clinton announced her run for president in April 2015. The access was ostensibly granted to facilitate work on Clinton's memoir, but Grassley said he was only able to verify it after the Obama administration left the White House. (More

GatewayPundit has more information on Farkas'  impressive resume (tweet below). 

Thomas Wictor has a very interesting sting theory about Trump's dealings with the leakers that is worth a read (cache version).

Less speculative is a report on The Last Refuge about White House Deputy Chief-of-Staff Katie Walsh being reassigned to jobs outside the White House since she was caught leaking information to her pal at the NYT, Maggie Haberman. Walsh was effectively set up when she leaked the identities of two National Security Council members as the people who facilitated the intelligence information for Devin Nunes. The article written by Maggie Haberman explains why Nunes acted "cloak and dagger style", per Adam Schiff, which was actually a set up for Walsh: […]
The congressman [Nunes] has refused to identify his sources, saying he needed to protect them so others would feel safe coming to the committee with sensitive information. He disclosed the existence of the intelligence reports on March 22, and in his public comments he has described his sources as whistle-blowers trying to expose wrongdoing at great risk to themselves. Several current American officials identified the White House officials as Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, a lawyer who works on national security issues at the White House Counsel’s Office and formerly worked on the staff of the House Intelligence Committee. (...)
The Last Refuge concludes:
Once Ranking Member Adam Schiff and Committee Vice-Chair Senator Mark Warner review the intelligence information they will no longer be able to claim President Trump WAS NOT under political surveillance by former President Obama. The information is also available to the other oversight members of the Gang of Eight: Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer. The most visible and vocal democrat opposition to the White House is now painted into a corner. (More).

Mar 29, 2017 Hannity talks to Sara Carter and John Solomon. 

A former top Obama administration official acknowledged efforts by her colleagues to gather intelligence about possible Trump team ties to Russia before he took office, MSNBC reported. Deputy assistant secretary of defense Evelyn Farkas said she urged people on the Hill to get "as much information as you can ... before President Obama leaves the administration." “Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left, so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy ... that the Trump folks -- if they found out how we knew what we knew about their ... the Trump staff dealing with Russians -- that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence,” she said. (More)

The person in question is denying any knowledge, blaming someone "on the dark net" for twisting her words. Check this thread:

The chronology is interesting.
June 2015 Trump declares running for President.
Sept. 2015 Farkas leaves State Dept, joins Hillary campaign.
Earlier this month on an episode of Judge Jeanine Pirro Democrat spokeswoman Marian Marsh blurts out that the Trump campaign was under Obama investigation since the spring of 2015!

Back momentarily to the Montgomery revelations, Freedom Watch have taken up the matter about unanswered questions with chairman Nunes of the House Intel Ctee in a letter, "despite a myriad of evidence, direct and circumstantial, of the illegal and unconstitutional surveillance disclosed by the FBI by Montgomery (...)". PDF of the letter.

March 24, 2017


Mar 24, 2017 Chairman of the House Intel Ctee Devin Nunes informs reporters on Friday morning. 

Devin Nunes informed the media this morning of 4 late developments. The heads of the NSA and the FBI will be heard in closed session on Tuesday. Documents from NSA are expected later today or early next week. Mollie Hemingway has a succint summing up of the matter in hand:
Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to grasp the significance of what Nunes revealed [on Wednesday March 22 presser]. You can — and should — watch that press conference here. (...) 1) Information was collected on the Trump team by Obama administration agencies. 2) This information had no reason to be shared in intelligence reports to Obama officials. 3) Obama officials may have flouted legally required attempts to minimize and mask personal identifying information. 4) This had nothing to do with Russia. (...) 
Nunes says “it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.” He also said, “What I read was clearly significant information about president-elect Trump and his team.” (...) When an administration is spreading around reports of political and personal discussions, failing to mask that information, and the information itself isn’t of foreign intelligence value, you have the makings of a huge scandal. (...) 
Imagine that President George W. Bush had listened in on Obama transition team discussions and spread that information throughout the bureaucracy. Can you imagine how outraged the entire press corps would have been? And rightly so! Abusing foreign surveillance machinery to collect and spread information on political opponents is wrong. Selectively leaking that information via a coordinated campaign to a receptive media complex in order to give an unsubstantiated impression that a political opponent is illegitimate or compromised is also not great.

March 23, 2017


Nunes reported something new: that the surveillance did not involve the ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) inquiry into Russia’s alleged involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Commentators keep forgetting this aspect. Nunes also stressed that none of the surveillance had any specific intelligence value. The question, he said, was why names of those swept up in the surveillance had been leaked. The collection of the intelligence appeared to have been legal, but the leaking may have been illegal. Most of the activity occurred during the transition period from November to January. Nunez added that the new information had come to light after Monday’s hearing with FBI Director James Comey, when the congressman had appealed to anyone with new information to come forward. He said the new revelations had been “legally brought to me by sources who thought that we should know it. But there's more! 

Parallel to the Nunes revelation plays the uncovering of proof of spying on Trump and Alex Jones by whistleblower Montgomery as reported over the last few days by Alex Jones and Dr. Corsi (scroll down) who are now hot on the trail of a supercomputer called " The Hammer". 

March 22, 2017


March 22, 2017 Nunes President Trump's Transition Team Was Under Surveillance.

As the mainstream media and authorities continue to ignore the revelations in the last few days by Sara Carter and Alex Jones, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes is on his way to the White House as we speak to inform the President of what he has uncovered during his investigations.
Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under U.S. government surveillance following November’s presidential election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told reporters Wednesday. Nunes said the surveillance appeared to be legal but that he was concerned because it was not related to the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the election and was widely disseminated across the intelligence community. 
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored. It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.” 
Nunes said he is heading to the White House later Wednesday to brief Trump on what he has learned, which he said came from “sources who thought that we should know it.” He said he was trying to get more information by Friday from the FBI, CIA and NSA. Nunes described the surveillance as most likely being “incidental collection.” This can occur when a person inside the United States communicates with a foreign target of U.S. surveillance. In such cases, the identities of U.S. citizens are supposed to be kept secret — but can be “unmasked” by intelligence officials under certain circumstances. Nunes said his new information appears to show that additional members of the Trump transition team — beyond former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — were unmasked. 
This means they were identified in U.S. intelligence reports. He said the information that he had seen and was disseminated across the intelligence community appeared to him to have "little or no apparent intelligence value." He also said he did not know yet whether the Trump transition team members who were unmasked were communicating from Trump Tower. Earlier Wednesday, Trump claimed in a series of Tweets that former President Barack Obama ordered a wiretap of the phones at Trump Tower — something Nunes reiterated on Wednesday did not happen. Nunes said he briefed House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on the information on Wednesday morning.  (Source)

Mar 20, 2017 Live Stream: The Alex Jones Show - NSA Docs Show Trump Surveillance.

March 19, 2017

TRUMP WAS SURVEILLED FOR YEARS! have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years. Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013. Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have identified dozens of entries at various addresses, including both Trump Tower in New York City and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, under which Donald Trump was apparently under NSA electronic surveillance from 2004, during President George W. Bush’s term of office, through 2009, the first year of President Obama’s presidency. (More)

Mar 15, 2017 Hacker Faking Pings Between Trump Server & Alpha Bank - Sara Carter - Sean Hannity

Since breaking the news about the FISA requests on Sean Hannity, Sara Carter and her colleague John Solomon have been on the show every night with a story that is reminiscent of an episode of the series "Homeland", or a title of an Agatha Christie mystery novel.

Mar 15, 2017 Sara Carter joins Hannity to set the record straight on the two FISA requests.

On March 17 they broke more news about the mysterious pings which they allege have been produced by a hacker into the connection between the Russian Alfa Bank and a server offsite but related to Trump Tower. Which raises the question:

Apparently CNN has now broken Sara Carter's and John Solomon's investigations without crediting them.

Mar 8, 2017 Fox News: @Circa News' Sara Carter talks to Sean Hannity. 

Sara Carter, a national security correspondent told Sean Hannity on Wednesday evening that Circa News has revealed that there are two separate investigations of Trump’s servers.

Intelligence sources say that the FBI investigated a computer tied to Donald Trump's business but there's no evidence to date that would warrant criminal charges against any of the president’s associates. 1 of 32 The months-long FBI counterintelligence investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential campaign briefly investigated a computer server tied to Donald Trump's businesses near the end of the election but has not gathered evidence of election tampering to date that would warrant criminal charges against any of the president’s associates, Circa has learned. (Source)

Update March 9, 2017:

March 8, 2017


Obama was afraid Trump would stop the internal investigation of "the Russians hacked the election for Trump" meme. So Obama had the DoJ widely disseminating raw information among thousands of intelligence operators and political appointees, thus assuring illegal leaking to the Democrat Media Complex. Both Houses of Congress are now on the case, raising concern about these Obama booby traps. Former Secret Service man Dan Bongino has a great idea how Trump found out. His idea has the beauty of simplicity.

March 7, 2017


Even though the Democrat media complex has been alleging Trump collusion with Russia on the flimsiest grounds, they are now demanding Trump proves that Obama has been wiretapping the Trump campaign or his associates. The tapping of Flynn is a fact. It is also a fact that the raw data -- the transcripts -- were illegally leaked to the media, primarily to unhinged NeverTrumper Louise Mensch of Heat Street and her connection to NeverTrump candidate and former CIA agent, Evan McMullin. Two things though. We should not be blind sighted by the FISA requests. The federal Government has an array of technologies at its disposal to locate and eavesdrop on citizens (stingray) without any warrants. NSA has access to landlines, cell phones, key boards and what not. They resort directly under the President and operate highly independent. Edward Snowden (dossier) revealed all that! Update: The latest Vault 7 Wikileaks dump reveals CIA capability to turn smart TVs and vehicle control systems (more) into tapping devizes and identify CIA hacks as Russian or Chinese. The Obama regime has a reputation of going after whistleblowers and critical journalists.  President Trump thinks five steps ahead. It is very well possible Trump has paper trail proof: after all, he is now in charge of the executive branch. Perhaps he wants Congress to conduct the investigation for a reason. He doesn't want the results to be buried, like the outcome of their probe into his Russian collusion. They came up with nothing to date, but the Dems are continuing their insinuations. This investigation is supposed to go on into eternity.

While President Trump is the victim of Democrat overreach, the media are attacking Trump for making an accusation against Obama "without evidence", even though they themselves ARE the evidence. The story of the FISA Court wire tapping was first published in Heat Street, and later independently reported by The Guardian and the BBC. Today Heat Street -- a Murdoch outlet managed by NeverTrumper Louise Mensch -- explains:
The White House on Sunday called for Congress to investigate whether the Obama Administration was abusing its investigative powers last year and secretly wiretapping the Trump campaign prior to the election. The existence of a warrant to surveil Trump officials for allegedly improper ties to Russia was first reported in November by Heat Street. (...) 
The Washington Post noted that the president was likely reacting to a Friday article by Breitbart which cited Heat Street‘s report. In that November report, Louise Mensch described the existence of a secret “FISA warrant”, approved by a court, which allowed FBI agents to do electronic surveillance of Trump’s campaign and associates. According to Heat Street, the FBI was first turned down by a court but was later successful. (...) 
On Saturday, a spokesman for Obama categorically denied that the President “nor any White House official under Obama has ever ordered surveillance on any US citizen. Any suggestion is unequivocally false.” The denials from Obama-era officials continued Sunday morning. 
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who left his post when Mr Trump took office on January 20, told NBC’s Meet the Press: “There was no such wire-tap activity mounted against the president-elect at the time, as a candidate, or against his campaign.” But on This Week on ABC, Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey said he believed the President. “I think he’s right in that there was surveillance and that it was conducted at the behest of the attorney general – at the Justice Department,” he said. 
Also on This Week, Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stressed that the Trump Administration was only asking for a thorough investigation to find out if the wiretapping had indeed occurred. “There are multiple news outlets that have reported this,” she said “And all we’re asking is that we get the same level of look into the Obama Administration and the potential that they had for a complete abuse of power.” 
ABC host Martha Raddatz who was interviewing Sanders cited Heat Street as she tried to clarify where Trump got his information that he was wiretapped. “The President said it did take place,” Raddatz began. “Why does he believe these articles that you say you cite, and I’m saying they are not definitive. The Breitbart brings them all together: Heat Street had two sources with links to the counterintelligence community. That’s it. Anonymous sources.” The White House is also pursuing an investigation of its own. 
The New York Times reported Saturday that White House Counsel Donald McGahn is now searching for the alleged FISA warrants or warrants. (Source)


Mar 5, 2017 Mark Levin lays out the facts on Obama wire tapping Trump Tower on Fox and Friends. 

Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin made waves Thursday by showing how the phony, alleged scandal concerning Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his contact with the Russian ambassador pales in comparison to the real scandal: a “silent coup” by unelected Obama-era bureaucrats against the elected president of the United States. He also criticized Republicans who took cheap political shots at Sessions instead of asking serious questions about how Obama holdovers are attempting to undermine Trump. (...)
"There's a much bigger scandal here,” Levin said Thursday. He continued, saying: We have a prior administration – Barack Obama and his surrogates – who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the ... intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public. 
"The question is: Was Obama surveilling top Trump campaign officials during the election?" he asked. Levin recounts how in June of 2016, the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and his advisers, a request that was denied. In October, as Andy McCarthy reported at National Review, the Obama administration tried again, an attempt that was met with success. Top Trump associates became the targets of several intelligence agency investigations.

What happened next? Leaks to the press from national security agencies caused the president’s national security adviser Michael Flynn to resign. Now the attorney general has recused himself of investigations related to the 2016 campaign. These are “police state tactics,” Levin warned. If the unelected members of the federal bureaucracy can willfully violate the will of the elected president and undermine his authority as these Obama-administration holdovers appear to have done, how can the United States be said to be a country where the people are sovereign and governed by their consent? (Source)

The White House asked Congress on Sunday to examine whether the Obama administration abused its investigative authority during the 2016 campaign, as part of an ongoing congressional probe into Russia's influence on the election. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump and administration officials would have no further comment on the issue until Congress has completed its probe.

Obama on Trump's case since spring of 2015?

Last night's episode of Judge Jeanine Pirro yielded some remarkable statements. Cory Lewendowski interpreted the two meetings of AG Sessions with the Russian Ambassador as the result of taps on then Senator Sessions. If that is true, this is a huge problem. But probably this is just the former campaign manager's understanding of the situation. A second statement was by Democrat spokeswoman Marian Marsh blurting out that the Trump campaign was under Obama investigation since the spring of 2015! Amazing stuff!

March 4, 2017


A number of Obama lieutenants as well as his media lapdogs are assuring us Obama never ordered the wire taps. Well, he didn't have to, did he? An application must be made by the FBI at the FISA Court, and the Court approves it if there is probable cause that someone is acting as a foreign agent. It is approved on flimsical evidence at best and rarely denied, as was the case with the earlier FISA request in June. The FISA Court is secret and the information is highly confidential because totally innocent citizens could be caught up. Yet the information was illegally disclosed and leaked to Heatstreet, The Guardian and NYT. If there are criminal activities involved, a criminal wire tap would have to be applied for, not a FISA request. Manafort had not yet joined the campaign in June and the left before the October request. Obama's spox and lieutenants do not deny that wiretaps existed. They just deny that Obama ordered it. At the very least Obama must have been aware of the FBI's fishing expedition. Obama’s former speechwriter Jon Favreau warned reporters against saying there was no wiretap.

And Favreau endorsed a Twitter feed [linking to Justin Hendrix thread] that laid out the reporting about the existence of the wiretaps. Breitbart:
In other words, these ex-Obama officials are subtly confirming the accuracy of the reporting (...) but they say the president himself and the Obama White House was not involved in the decision. What’s more, Philip Rucker, the White House bureau chief at the Washington Post, says the same thing (...) 
This appears to be the calculus: either the wiretaps exist, as Trump suggests, and the president will use them to bludgeon the Obama administration and the media for impropriety and overreach; or, there were no wiretaps, which suggests the previous administration had no reason to suspect Trump colluded with a foreign government. (Source)



It looks like Democrats have overplayed their hand when they yelled "perjury" demanding the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Then Senator Jeff Sessions provides the context of Al Franken's question himself during the confirmation hearings: “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.” Inept? Don't think so. Perjury requires intent to mislead, which there clearly wasn't. The most important fact so far about the larger Trump-Russia collusion intrigue is that there are so few facts.

  • The dossier of supposed contacts between Trumpists and Russians published by BuzzFeed has never been corroborated.
  • Democrats on the House and Senate intelligence committees investigating the ties have come up empty.
What we have on the evidence so far seems to the second crimeless coverup. But when you go deeper into the rabbit hole an entirely different scandal emerges. That of a regime that is investigating a political rival in a manner reminiscent of police states. Intelligence agencies have been wire tapping Trump Tower in order to investigate people who left the campaign months before. Breitbart provides the time line:

Radio host Mark Levin used his Thursday [March 2] evening show to outline the known steps taken by President Barack Obama’s administration in its last months to undermine Donald Trump’s presidential campaign (...) drawing on sources including the New York Times and the Washington Post, Levin described the case against Obama so far, based on what is already publicly known. The following is an expanded version of that case, including events that Levin did not mention specifically but are important to the overall timeline. [ annotations in brackets].

[Before June: The Obama regime is investigating if the Trump campaign is colluding with Russia, resulting in the first FISA request.]
1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied. [The request mentions the name of the "US person Trump" and fails to show probable cause that said "Trump" is "an agent of a foreign power"; hence the request is denied.] 
2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking. 
3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians. 
4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court [not naming Trump], now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks [Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Carter Page, who have all left the campaign months before then and deny allegations]. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notesThe Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.  [Sources are The Guardian, NYT and Heatstreet
5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossierBuzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington. 
6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly [unauthorized i.e. illegal] or leaked. 
7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties  [i.e. Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Carter Page]. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.  
8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama’s newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them. Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation. 
9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites “four current and former American officials” in reporting that the Trump campaign had “repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is “no evidence” of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks. 
10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event [now turned out organized by the State Department] and once at a meeting in Sessions’s Senate office. The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions’s testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the “dossier” of ongoing contacts. 
The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House “rushed to preserve” intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By “preserve” it really means “disseminate”: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies “to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators” and perhaps the media as well. (Source)
The New York Times reports that political appointees signed off on surveillance of “associates” of the Trump campaign, though “the nature of these contacts remains unknown.”

The officials then spread this raw intelligence throughout the government and to foreign counterparts, ensuring they’d be widely read and supposedly to prevent their Trump successors from covering up the truth.

Only days before the inauguration, President Obama also signed an executive order that allows the National Security Agency to share raw intercepts and data with the 16 other agencies in the intelligence community. NSA analysts used to filter out irrelevant information and minimize references to Americans. Now such material is being leaked anonymously. (Source)

This is far more troubling than a meeting with an ambassador.

Joel B. Pollak on Breitbart concludes that:
  • The Obama administration eventually got authorization to wire tap the Trump campaign, possibly on false grounds since the targets had already left the campaign months prior to the second FISA request. 
  • The Obama regime continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; 
  • They then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked unauthorized to the media.
We need an urgent investigation of the investigation! 

Feb. 22, 2017

The stunning question is why the establishment applauds illegal surveillance by the intelligence community of the democratically elected Government and unauthorized disclosures by shadow warriors to the media. The President wonders, "why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on North Korea etc?"  =


Feb 16, 2017 Russian pranksters call Mccain.

This could be the beginning of the end for embattled Sen. John McCain’s life in politics. According to White House officials, McCain [Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee] is believed to have somehow gained access to the content of President Donald Trump’s private, classified telephone calls with world leaders. And he isn’t keeping quiet about what was talked about either. (...) McCain has been lambasting Trump to anyone and everyone who will listen since the newly minted president’s inauguration. This includes a Russian comedian who pranked McCain posing as Ukraine Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman. Even during that troubling conversation, where McCain shared sensitive U.S. intelligence with an imposter, White House aides said. McCain unknowingly exposed himself as having inside knowledge of Trump’s telephone conversations. “He has been given transcripts or actually listened to the calls and is sharing what he has heard,” an administration insider said. “There is no doubt. He is one of the major leaks.” (More)

Feb 17, 2017 Jay Sekulow explains Obama's eleventh hour new powers for the NSA that explains the ' soft coup' against Trump and Flynn.

In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections. The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches. The change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz has formally asked the Dept. of Justice Inspector General to conduct an investigation. President Trump has called a news conference for Thursday Feb. 16 in which he is expected to announce a wide ranging investigation into the situation of unauthorized disclosures by rogue elements in the Intelligence Community (IC) (more). Update: Pres. Trump did not announce his own investigation although he has asked the DoJ to investigate. He denied reports in WSJ that the IC was withholding information because they "don't trust the administration". The House Intel and the House Oversight Committees are also on the case.


Feb 15, 2017 Piers Morgan joins Sean Hannity and Joe Digenova to discuss the media bias against Trump. 

Feb. 15, 2017


The shadow warriors are reacting today to President Trump's tweets. But instead of the President dying "in jail" they themselves are looking potentially at 10 years in prison for violating the espionage act:

The former NSA spook John Schindler and national security columnist for the Observer (owned by Trump's son in law) published an article on Sunday titled “The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins,” asserting that the shadow warriors are rebelling against Trump over alleged ties to the Kremlin. The situation is so bad, according to Schindler, that they are now beginning to withhold intelligence from the White House.

Update: the shadow warriors are seriously out of control. We tend to think in political allegiances or Left versus Right, but the deep state is oriented towards the enemies of the state. These old dogs, having lived through the Cold War seem to be unable to shake the Russo phobia. They can't bear the idea of detente. President Trump might get some advice from Henry Kissinger, who dealt with a similar problem in the Nixon administration known as the Pentagon Papers.

Meantime the House Intel Committee is preparing to investigate the unauthorized disclosures and attacks on the democratically elected Government of President Trump. Investigations into "Russian meddling" have already proved groundless.

Feb 14, 2017 Sean Hannity talks to Eli Lake (Bloomberg), Sara Carter (Circa) and Paul Sperry (New York Post - more).

General Mike Flynn resigned Monday Feb. 14 when his position became untenable after embarrassing the VP. The core problem is that on Obama's watch the President Elect's National Security Adviser's calls with the Russian Ambassador were taped by NSA and FBI, and transcripts were handed to acting Attorney General at the Justice Dept. Sally Yates (since fired by Trump) and leaked to the Washington Post. Flynn did no more than his job. Even the New York Times is again (!) admitting there is no evidence of Russian involvement in the elections.

House member Trey Gowdy (chairman Select Committee on Benghazi) said this morning no evidence was found of Russian involvement in the elections, but the media and the Democrats are still insinuating collusion with Russia. This is the globalists' narrative also for the upcoming elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany. The tenacity with which the globalists persist is no doubt that it serves as cover for their losses. The denial of the idea that the voters would actually reject their ideology, is an integral part of it.

In the minds of the media, the Trump administration is already rendered incapable of implementing its agenda. The media are manipulating the minds of the public. The few voters they have not already lost, are the true believers who are ready to accept anything.

It is perhaps the best if an independent enquiry looks into the matter of the criminal disclosures. President Trump suspects Obama holdovers, that are going to lose their job one way or another. Or it might be misguided 'intel community' loyalists who think they are saving the country from Putin.

Here the most noteworthy articles on the matter.

Here's how the NWO itself is seeing the situation. In a mind boggling article, short on fact, long on building the straw man, they are pressing on the Russians that Trump is the true revolutionary that even they may come to regret. Vladimir Putin's entourage cheered the outcome of the U.S. election – until they saw exactly what they were dealing with. It's outrageous demonization!
