Illegal US Gov’t Spying on a Massive Scale

Sometimes it’s possible to get caught up in the weeds in the comments section at the Conservative Treehouse blog.  This time reading through many comments has led to some startling revelations!  Please watch this video to learn more about the massive spying the US Government has been illegally doing against its citizens.  This interview of 2 former government contractors with the NSA/CIA/FBI who worked on parallel platforms where the government can spy on anyone but avoid oversight, accountability, & footprints is stunning in its indictment of what’s been happening for many years!!!

The original conversations were found at this provocative Treehouse post:

Devin Nunes and Mark Meadows Discuss Corruption Within FBI/DOJ and “New Whistle-blowers” Coming Forward……

See the source image

There are some fascinating discussions about whistleblowers in the comments, here’s a hint of what you can find there–please check it out yourself, link immediately above:

  • Beau Geste says:

    If I recall correctly, there were supposed to be about 30 FBI agents who tried to be “whistleblowers”, but the congresscritters refused them. Because of their “non-disclosure” contracts and crime statutes, they wanted to be subpoenaed by congress to testify and produce records. Congress (then republican) refused. Do I remember this correctly?

    • Beau Geste says:

      I looked it up:
      https://dailycaller.com/2018/05/22/fbi-agents-congress-subpoenas/
      “There are agents all over this country who love the bureau and are sickened by [James] Comey’s behavior and [Andrew] McCabe and [Eric] Holder and [Loretta] Lynch and the thugs like [John] Brennan–who despise the fact that the bureau was used as a tool of political intelligence by the Obama administration thugs,” former federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova told The Daily Caller Tuesday. “They are just waiting for a chance to come forward and testify……TheDC independently confirmed the veracity of the consultant’s position and access, and reviewed detailed transcripts of his Q&A with the special agent, who requested the arrangement due to internal dragnets and fear of vicious retribution.
      These agents prefer to be subpoenaed to becoming an official government whistleblower, since they fear political and professional backlash, the former Trump administration official explained to TheDC.
      The subpoena is preferred, he said, “because when you are subpoenaed, Congress then pays…for your legal counsel and the subpoena protects [the agent] from any organizational retaliation…. they are on their own as whistleblowers, they get no legal protection and there will be organizational retaliation against them.”
      DiGenova — who along with his wife, Victoria Toensing, has represented government whistleblowers in the past — agreed, telling TheDC, “It’s an intelligent approach to the situation given the vindictive nature of the bureau under Comey and McCabe. I have no idea how to read Chris Wray, who is not a leader and who has disappeared from the public eye during this entire crisis. You know, he may be cleaning house but if he’s doing so, he’s doing it very quietly.”
      He added, “I don’t blame them. I don’t blame the agents one bit. I think that the FBI is in a freefall. James Comey has destroyed the institution he claims to love. And it is beyond a doubt that it is going to take a decade to restore public confidence because of Comey and Clapper and Brennan and Obama and Lynch.”
      The special agent out of WFO alleged that rank and file FBI agents are fed up and desperately want action from the DOJ, according to the transcripts.
      “Every special agent I have spoken to in the Washington Field Office wants to see McCabe prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They feel the same way about Comey,“ the special agent said, according to transcripts provided to TheDC…. “The administrations are so politicized that any time a Special Agent comes forward as a whistleblower, they can expect to be thrown under the bus by leadership. …The special agent added, “Activity that Congress is investigating is being stonewalled by leadership and rank-and-file FBI employees in the periphery are just doing their jobs. All Congress needs to do is subpoena involved personnel and they will tell you what they know. These are honest people. Leadership cannot stop anyone from responding to a subpoena. Those subpoenaed also get legal counsel provided by the government to represent them.”
      In the meantime, DiGenova and the others who spoke to TheDC believe it is time for Congress to issue subpoenas to FBI agents who are willing to talk. According to DiGenova, the House and Senate Judiciary Committees can issue these subpoenas.
      “Either one of those [committees] would be fine. I’m sure the committees could hold hearings in a New York minute,” he said.
      He added, “I can assure you I’ve been approached by agents who want to be subpoenaed for the same reason the guys in the field,” adding, “All over this country there are agents but the big ones the ones that matter New York–Washington I can assure you I’ve spoken with agents who want to come forward.”

      SO, WHY HAS THE SENATE REFUSED TO SUBPOENA THESE AGENTS?
      Senator Grassley says they are just fine without a subpoena (despite Jeff Sessions’ directive NOT to talk to congress), so the Senate clearly doesn’t want “rank and file” FBI whistleblowers, for some reason:

  1. Perot Conservative says:

    Great! I show 5 Whistleblowers in the recent past, some not treated so well. #4 is a new one to me; very interesting that he claims MUELLER LAUNCHED AN ILLEGAL SPYING program in 2004?!

    1. Nov 2018, Daily Caller, Dennis Cain. “The FBI raided the home of a whistleblower who was in possession of documents regarding the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, according to the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras.”

    “The whistleblower, Dennis Nathan Cain…” He was a government-approved Whistleblower and they searched his house for 6 hours! Unemployed now, tough times.

    2. Uranium One Whistleblower William Douglas Campbell. Characterized by the Democrats as having nothing of substance in 2017. Long-term insider who wore a wire for our government when dealing with Russians;, kept notes; and received a payment from the FBI for his courageous work.

    His attorney is Victoria Toesing, who says the Democrats made misleading statements and twisted his words. Ms. Toesing claimed several months ago Huber never even interviewed him!

    3. Clinton Foundation IRS Whistleblowers John Moynihan and Larry Doyle. December 2018. The pair believe they have proof of pay-to-play and tens of Millions in unpaid CF taxes. They have turned over their information to the FBI and IRS.

    4. I just ran into this one. Very interesting. Not familiar with the site or track record.

    Former CIA/NSA/DIA subcontractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery and his attorney Larry Klayman, claim the FBI (under Mueller) provided “computers to a secret CIA/NSA surveillance program that was launched in 2004. That program morphed into a domestic surveillance program that spied on Donald Trump and his associates.”

    https://www.commdiginews.com/politics-2/cia-whistleblower-muellers-fbi-computers-spied-on-trump-and-scotus-91264/

    5. There is a fifth Whistleblower who hasn’t been identified. I believe he was a long-term government employee. He compiled irregular data, it may have been about Hillary Clinton, and sent a huge packet to the FBI. He never heard back from them.

    Disturbed at no response, he personally went to the FBI with the same packet of information and CDs, and spoke to the specific supervisor in charge of such. (Sorry for being vague, this was maybe 2 years ago.)

    Look up FBI and Whistleblower. There appears to be a pattern of burying people, igniring fheir rights, etc.

     

…I believe “robert copp” below is referring to the video I shared above…

  1. FL_GUY says:

    I believe it is safe to say that the reason that people did not come forward is the corrupt people were their bosses. Now that there is a new AG, they feel safe to come forward.

    I’ve watched over the years what happens to people who blow the whistle on corrupt politicians. They are the ones that get in trouble while the corrupt politicians remain unaffected.

    Just a case in point, when Waco Reno was a FL state attorney in Miami-Dade, two whistle blowers came forward with evidence of vote fraud by the supervisor of elections and their staff. Reno immediately had them arrested and eventually scheduled for prosecution, essentially ruining them. Right before they were to have their day in court and get on the record, Reno dropped the charges and court was cancelled. No one has reported voter fraud by election officials since.

    And of course, we know where Reno ended up, AG for HilLIARy’s first two terms. Bubba was too much of a doper and womanizer to really act as the President.

    So, I can understand why, even when they have smoking gun evidence, like those two people in Miami-Dade, if the people enforcing the law are corrupt, which has become the case, the whistle blower is the victim and the perp(s) walk.

    So, if people are coming forward, it’s because they believe in AG Barr who will prosecute the actual criminals and not the people reporting the crime.

Rhi says:

Yup. Sunshine patriots.

If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Walk-Through of the Coup (Attempt)

Sundance of the Conservative Treehouse blog, brilliantly & succinctly walks us through the steps of the coup attempt to unseat Donald Trump, before, during, & after the 2016 election.  Please see the original post, link below, for the damning details!!!

“The Russian election interference narrative; the use of Joseph Mifsud, Stefan Halper, the London and Australian embassy personnel; Erika Thompson, Alexander Downer, U.S. DIA officials; everything around Crossfire Hurricane; and everything after to include the construct of the Steele Dossier; all of it was needed for the creation of an ‘after-the-fact‘  plausible justification to cover-up what Mike Rogers discovered in early 2016, AND the downstream unmasked records that existed in the Obama White House SCIF.

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 to research Donald Trump.  The intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. They already knew everything about the Trump campaign. The Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a justification for pre-existing surveillance and spy operations.”

Within the post Sundance points out that many machinations occurred during the Primary Season of the 2016 election.  I wonder if finding evidence of spying on the other Republican candidates would lead to people understanding the scope & criminality of what the Obama administration cronies were doing to destroy our republic…???

Trump Doctrine – Economic Security IS National Security!

Check out Sundance’s brilliant & concise piece explaining Trump’s maneuvers in relation to Mexico, tariffs, & border issues (link to post below).  Using China as the backdrop Sundance, of the Conservative Treehouse blog, brilliantly explains the Trump Doctrine & how he continues to Make America Great Again!!!

“This is what an apex business predator does to his/her economic or financial adversary. All the responsibility for action is on the other party. If Mexico fails, Trump wins. If Mexico succeeds, Trump wins. See how that works?

Economic security is national security. Once again we see the ‘Trump Doctrine‘ at work. President Trump using economic strength as leverage to achieve national security objectives and solve national security problems.”

More Evidence of the Duplicitous Deep State

Here is an eclectic collection of some of the recent material supporting the theory that the DC Deep State fully knew what it was doing in attempting to thwart Donald Trump’s election, to hinder his transition, to terminate his presidency.  In short the Coup Attempt has been writ large & is available for viewing on multiple stages.  Enjoy!

Veggie Alfredo Sauce

A few nights back I made an experimental sauce to go over some pasta my husband was cooking.  As is often my practice, I made use of what we had on hand…& it turned out pretty well overall!

See the source image

I started with some bacon grease we’d saved in the fridge & melted it in the frying pan.  I chopped up some onions & smashed & chopped some garlic (unfortunately not as much as desired as we were running low) & cooked them in the grease.  I believe I then added a small can of mushrooms here (but may be mixing that up with a later soup concoction created?).  I chopped up the stem portion of a large bunch of broccoli to add to the frying pan & cooked this briefly before adding enough flour to make a paste with the residual bacon grease.

See the source image

Then I added the remains of some white wine to deglaze the pan.  When the wine was thoroughly mixed into the grease & flour in the pan I added some half & half.  Then there was some 2 % milk & lots of parmesan cheese.  Cooking this to thicken I added further milk & cheese until the desired consistency was reached.  I added the chopped broccoli florets in the last couple minutes of cooking to keep their color & crisp tender texture!

See the source image

This mixture was seasoned, to taste, with Cavender’s seasoning, garlic parsley salt, & fresh ground pepper.  Then this was ladled over the pasta for a delicious treat!  We had chicken on the side so this wasn’t a vegetarian meal (I guess the bacon grease precludes that too).  Some of us sprinkled more parmesan cheese & seasonings over top at the table too.  When using leftovers the sauce apparently didn’t separate apart upon re-heating like so many sauces from restaurants like Olive Garden tend to do…

See the source image

This is close to the sauce & broccoli proportions in my sauce–image from bing.com

Here’s the approximate amounts of ingredients used, in the order added:

Vegetarian Alfredo Sauce

  • 1/3 cup bacon grease
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • fresh garlic, smashed & chopped, to taste
  • small can of mushroom pieces
  • chopped stem portions of a broccoli head, ~ 2 cups
  • flour sufficient to absorb the grease, ~ 1/4 cup
  • white wine, ~ 1 cup
  • half & half, ~ 1 1/2 cups
  • 2% milk, ~2-3 cups
  • parmesan cheese, ~ 1-3 cups
  • chopped floret portion of a broccoli head, ~ 1 1/2 cups
  • seasonings of choice, garlic parsley salt, Cavender’s, fresh ground pepper, etc
  1. Combine first four ingredients & cook until onions are tender.
  2. Add the chopped broccoli stems & cook a few minutes.
  3. Add sufficient flour & stir to absorb the grease.
  4. Add white wine to the pan & stir gently to combine with flour mixture.
  5. Add half & half slowly, mixing until combined thoroughly.
  6. Add milk slowly & mix gently into sauce.
  7. Heat mixture to a simmer & add parmesan cheese stirring gently.
  8. Adjust the thickness & flavor of the sauce with milk &/or cheese.
  9. Add the chopped floret portion of broccoli just before serving.
  10. Adjust seasonings to taste with garlic parsley salt, Cavender’s seasoning, & freshly ground black pepper.
  11. Serve over pasta.

This was a Very Tasty sauce & was thoroughly enjoyed by all!!!

See the source image

Adjustments in the future would include adding more fresh garlic if available.  I would also enjoy adding some chopped celery along with the onions.  Minced onion could be included with the spices.  Other veggies could also be considered but they would need to combine well with parmesan cheese & italian flavors.  Adding some slight amount of italian seasoning could also work too.  Further mild cheeses, like mozzerella, romano, & provolone could also fare well in this sauce.

See the source image

Starting with finely chopped bacon at the beginning could be a different twist as could adding chicken, shrimp, beef, or “seafood” like fake crab or lobster at the appropriate time in the cooking process.  Removing the solids while making the sauce may make it easier to avoid lumps, though this sauce didn’t get lumpy.  Cooking it over a lower flame & using a large covered frying pan may have helped the process as I was adding ingredients as they were ready, chopping & prepping as the process went along…

If you like or try this recipe or modify it at all I’d love to hear how it went for you.

Blessings!

Anatomy of an Assassination Attempt, Politically Speaking

This post has turned into a mishmash of info from multiple sources that give us details about the coup attempt against Donald Trump.  My original hope was to lay out a more reasoned path to encapsulate the key data-points along the way.  Somehow this just morphed into a repository of info from many sources.  Please dive in…

https://nypost.com/2019/04/15/behind-the-obama-administrations-shady-plan-to-spy-on-the-trump-campaign/?utm_source=twitter_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site%20buttons&utm_campaign=site%20buttons

Mark Levin and Byron York Discuss Weissmann/Mueller Report and Two Years of Nonsense…

Mueller Outlines Rosenstein August 2nd, Scope Memo – Investigate Claims in Steele Dossier…

From the above post: “With the communication from Alexander Downer (foundation for the EC), in conjunction with the Steele Dossier (foundation for the Page FISA), the CIA and FBI now held a plausible -albeit fraudulently obtained- basis to explain/justify all of their 2015 and 2016 political spying and surveillance activity.   This is their insurance policy.

Andrew Weissmann was/is one of the DOJ participants who is well aware of the status of the operations as they proceed.  In 2016 and 2017 Weissmann is being briefed by DOJ official Bruce Ohr who is carrying messages from Fusion-GPS and Chris Steele into the FBI.

If Hillary wins the election, everything just evaporates into the ether.  However, if Hillary loses the election – the fraudulent investigative evidence now protects all of the players for their role in weaponized intelligence spying and surveillance operations.

Fraudulent justifications.

Just like the Susan Rice justification Memo, fraudulent justifications are what’s behind those paragraphs in the Rosenstein scope memos as delivered to Weissmann and Mueller.

Fusion GPS was not hired to research Trump, the intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations.  The intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a justification for already existing surveillance and spy operations.

From the comments to the immediately above the quote post:

  1. k4jjj says:

    There can be no half measures. If every bit of this massive criminal and treasonous behavior is not revealed and prosecuted, how can this nation survive? There is no putting all of this back into Aladdin’s Lamp. The Big Ugly, the reveal of all the government corruption, does not end the United States. The Big Ugly SAVES the nation. The Big Ugly ends the reign of terror and bribery and the criminal lives of wealth and power of politicians but….

    POLITICIANS ARE NOT THE COUNTRY. They only THINK their widespread removal and imprisonment would be the end of the world.

    if William Barr came out of retirement to save America, he is a hero. If he only came out of retirement to preserve a corrupt and filthy system controlled by self-serving scoundrels, the nation is lost.

    An uncleaned sewer of a nation is nothing worth fighting for. No young patriots should offer to fight to preserve such a sewer. Nobody’s sons, brothers or fathers should have to come home in a flag-draped box to save this lawless government that has become a disgusting pile of human excrement.

Spygate and The Steele Dossier Were The Cover Story – The Real Issue is Years of Obama-era Surveillance and Political Spy Operations…

From the immediately above link:  “Why was/is Crossfire Hurricane (July ’16) and the Steele Dossier (Oct. ’16) so important to the principle intelligence apparatus, and the Mueller team (’17, ’18, ’19)?

I believe former NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers has told us the answer.  In early 2016 Rogers caught on to a massive and pre-existing weaponization of government surveillance and the use of collected NSA metadata for political spy operations.  Everything, that comes AFTER March 2016 is one big blanket cover-up operation….. ALL OF IT.

The Russian election interference narrative; the use of Joseph Mifsud, Stefan Halper, the London and Australian embassy personnel; Erika Thompson, Alexander Downer, U.S. DIA officials; everything around Crossfire Hurricane; and everything after to include the construct of the Steele Dossier; all of it was needed for the creation of an ‘after-the-fact‘  plausible justification to cover-up what Mike Rogers discovered in early 2016, AND the downstream unmasked records that existed in the Obama White House SCIF.

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 to research Donald Trump.  The intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. They already knew everything about the Trump campaign. The Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a justification for pre-existing surveillance and spy operations.

That’s why the FBI, and later the Mueller team, are so strongly committed to, and defending, the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.”

From the comments to the above post:

  1. concerned3 says:

    Stefan Halper’s son, is a co-director of the strategic software company called MITRE. MITRE is a known CIA Front Company. And, Nellie Orh has worked at Mitre. So if Stefan Halper met with Carter Page and Papadopoulos. Are we really saying the CIA met with Carter Page and Papadopoulos?

  2. Sam says:

    Starting in 2010, John Brennan played a key role in the evolution of targeted killing for the Obama administration, called Disposition Matrix, that included US citizens.

    In light of what we now know about Brennan and the Obama administration’s framing of political targets and mis-use of NSA, new light needs to be shined here. Implicates Joe Biden as well.

    http://military.wikia.com/wiki/Disposition_Matrix

    The various quotes below are copied directly from this link:

    “The process determining criteria for killing is not public, but has been heavily shaped by presidential counterterrorism adviser John Brennan.[2]”

    “….suspects are designated by multiple agencies and ultimately presented to Brennan and the Vice President.[1]The head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, responsible for carrying out orders to kill suspects on the list, no longer contributes to the decision of whether or not to kill them.[1]”

    “The criteria and decisions determining who may be targeted for killing are developed in large part by John Brennan, who “wields enormous power in shaping decisions on ‘kill’ lists and the allocation of armed drones”.[2]”

    “As reported previously, American citizens may be listed as targets for killing in the database.[7]Suspects are not formally charged of any crime or offered a trial in their own defense.[8

The Obama Use of FISA-702 as a Domestic Political Surveillance Program….

From the above post:  “When we reconcile what was taking place and who was involved, then the actions of the exact same principle participants take on a jaw-dropping amount of clarity.

All of the action taken by CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey, ODNI Clapper and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter make sense.  Including their effort to get NSA Director Mike Rogers fired.

Everything after March 9th, 2016, was done to cover up the weaponization of the FISA database. [Explained Here]  Spygate, Russia-Gate, the Steele Dossier, and even the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (drawn from the dossier and signed by the above) were needed to create a cover-story and protect themselves from discovery of this four year weaponization, political surveillance and unlawful spying.  Even the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel makes sense; he was FBI Director when this began.

The beginning decision to use FISA(702) as a domestic surveillance and political spy mechanism appears to have started in/around 2012. Perhaps sometime shortly before the 2012 presidential election and before John Brennan left the White House and moved to CIA.  However, there was an earlier version of data assembly that preceded this effort.

Political spying 1.0 was actually the weaponization of the IRS.  This is where the term “Secret Research Project” originated as a description from the Obama team.  It involved the U.S. Department of Justice under Eric Holder and the FBI under Robert Mueller.  It never made sense why Eric Holder requested over 1 million tax records via CD ROM, until overlaying the timeline of the FISA abuse…”
