Fourth Branch Of Government

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 15, 2021 by andelino

It’s bad enough that none of the alphabet “security” agencies were written into our Constitution. Now they have become politicized. They no longer adhere to any rule of law. They ARE the law and can do what they want. They certainly aren’t answerable to the American people.

We saw former NSA Director James Clapper lie to Congress about collecting data from hundreds of millions of Americans and about leaking the Steele Dossier information. We saw ex-CIA director and communist John Brennan lie about spying on Congress. Nothing happened to them. They are above the law.

The CIA now allows and approves torture. They call it “enhanced interrogation.” Yep, we a rogue agency engaged in torture.

We saw the FBI push through “illegal” FISA warrants in order to take down President Trump during the bogus Russia collusion malarkey. We saw how Mueller used over a dozen heavily FBI men to surround a peaceful, non-resisting Roger Stone on trumped-up charges. The CIA-influenced CNN was, of course, tipped off to the early morning raid.

We saw the FBI help encourage Trump supporters to protest at the Capitol while refusing to release videotapes that will prove their operatives were there. The FBI even seized a lego-made capitol building from one of the so-called “insurrectionists.”

We saw the FBI sit on Hunter Biden’s laptop. They did nothing. They certainly did not investigate the obvious corruption on display by the Biden’s. They also knew all about Epstein’s child abuse for years. They did nothing.

Tucker Carlson told us how the NSA is spying on his email in order find something that could possibly get him kicked off the air. Tucker confirmed what we knew already—Snowden had already told us all about it. Snowden is a whistleblower and hero, but he had to escape prosecution and possible assassination through exile to Russia.

We saw how false flag “terrorism” was used to give the TSA new powers to “grope and fondle” people at the airports.

All of these so-called “security agencies” have grown in scope and power over the years and, like “Big Government”, they want more power and influence over the direction of the country. They are aligned with the radical left and globalism.

What’s next? Will we see a Lubyanka prison constructed in Washington D.C.? Will the political enemies of Biden’s regime be whisked off the streets and shoved into cramped cells and then subjected to “enhanced interrogation” until they “confess?” Don’t be surprised if this happens. Don’t be surprised if a “network of gulags” is also set up.

The FEMA camps won’t be about “slave” labor, though. They’ll be about the “extermination” of the security agencies’ political enemies.

JFK wanted to break up the CIA. It’s too bad he was executed by them instead. Allen Dulles was fired by Kennedy, yet he was the leading man on the Warren Commission, which helped cover up the CIA’s crime.

It’s time to break up the CIA for good. Let the military conduct intelligence gathering on foreign countries. Stop trying to subvert other countries. That often leads to blow-back and endless war.

Break up the FBI too and let individual states assign marshals to fight real crime—not investigate or invent wrong doings against their perceived political enemies.

Do away with the NSA for their gross and repeated violations of the law. It’s a felony to read private mail of US citizens. Let the branches of the military monitor foreign enemies and let us Americans have our Fourth Amendment back.

The politicized security agencies will always hide and cower behind the magical phrase, “national security!” They are allowed to know everything about us. We are allowed to know nothing about them. When that happens, people begin to “fear and despise the government.

It should be the other way around…and besides, the security agencies are NOT the government and our government is not the country.

Deep State Treason

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 29, 2020 by andelino

America’s government has never been so awash in scandal. Fresh stories of allegations, accusations and investigations are coming so fast that many Americans are tuning out most of it. But the drama unfolding in Washington is something you cannot afford to ignore.

We are witnessing a government, and a nation, on the verge of collapse! In fact, all this shocking behavior from government officials and the national press shows that the nation only narrowly averted the destruction of the fundamental nature of the constitutional republic! And it will prove to be only a temporary deliverance.

On Oct. 21, 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice presented a vile, deceitful dossier to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court. The 35-page report was compiled by British former MI-6 intelligence agent Christopher Steele and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

It was to be used as opposition research, to smear and slander her political opponent. The dossier accused Donald Trump of escapades with Russian prostitutes, among other things. Not one bit of the dossier was verified, yet United States law enforcement agencies used it to obtain approval to spy on Trump campaign staff member Carter Page. That opened the door for spying on everyone surrounding President Trump.

On Jan. 5, 2017, outgoing President Barack Obama and his team held a crucial meeting with top federal law enforcement officials including then FBI director James Comey, National Security Agency director Michael Rogers, Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“The officials in the meeting would need to figure out how the investigation of Carter Page and the Trump campaign could continue despite the fact that its central focus, Trump, was about to be sworn in as president,” wrote Andrew McCarthy for National Review on February 15.

Think about that! These officials, led by Obama, were trying to figure out how to continue an investigation on the next sitting president, who would be their own boss! And it was based on a deceitful premise—what was essentially political propaganda!

McCarthy continued: “Obama had incredibly claimed that he never intervened in cases under investigation by the Justice Department and FBI.” He was emphatic in an April 2016 interview with Fox’s Chris Wallace: “I do not talk to the attorney general about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line and always have maintained it.”

That was an egregious lie! Barack Obama was deeply involved in investigations. He had lobbied on national television for Hillary Clinton not to be indicted and possibly even sent to jail before the 2016 election. That was a signal to his law enforcement cronies to leave her alone.

Later, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Comey even changed the wording of a document to call the “investigation” into her criminal activity just a “matter,” surely at the president’s request.

This article continued, “Obama officials claimed to adhere to a book that forbade consultations between political leaders and investigators. But here they were consulting”—during that January 5 meeting. And what were they consulting about? How to keep the investigation of Donald Trump going even after he became president!

Trump was set to be briefed on the Steele dossier the next day, January 6. As McCarthy wrote, it is almost certain that Comey only described a sliver of that report to the president-elect—the embarrassing sexual allegations—so Trump would allow the investigation to continue and to clear his name.

Comey must have left out the part about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians because there is no way Trump would have approved an investigation that considered him a criminal suspect! “The main purpose of counterintelligence operations is to keep the president informed; but when it came to the incoming president, law enforcement leaders treated the Russia investigation like a criminal probe in which Trump was a suspect,” McCarthy wrote.

Since Trump would have the power to shut down the investigation, the trick was to avoid making him feel threatened by it. Therefore, the strategy was to withhold information that illustrated Trump’s centrality to the investigation, assure him that he was not a suspect, and gently admonish him about the need to respect law enforcement’s independence on pain of being accused of obstruction.

Comey told Trump in private that he wasn’t under investigation. Trump wanted Comey to relay that message to the public, but he wouldn’t “because it was a lie!” So Trump fired him.

It is the president’s right to receive a full briefing of all ongoing investigations! If corrupt agents can withhold vital intelligence from the president, and even spy on him, what can they do to you?

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines treason as “the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state ….” You don’t have to know a lot about government to know that attempting to remove a lawfully elected president from office using unverified propaganda is treason of the highest level!

Corrupt law enforcement officials, led by Barack Obama and with the help of Hillary Clinton, conspired to “overthrow” the government of the United States! If that is not treason, then what is?

The entire Trump-Russia investigation was based on a hoax. Robert Mueller’s team has been searching for evidence of collusion for nearly a year and has found nothing.

But what has been revealed is a tremendous amount of lawbreaking by bureaucrats in intelligence and law enforcement! The previous president filled America’s law enforcement agencies with treasonous agents. He led what is known as the “deep state.” Something diabolical was going on until Trump was elected—and it is still going on behind the scenes today.

We are getting a hard look at just what the deep state is willing to do in order to seize power and stay in power. And the media aided and abetted the whole process! The more stories that come out, the clearer this ugly reality becomes. This is corruption on a deep level—so deep that most people won’t even believe it!

Before the election, just about everyone believed Hillary Clinton would be the next president. If she had won, none of this corruption would have come to light!

They have no respect for the rule of law! They believe they are above the law. It is no exaggeration to say that such contempt for the nation’s founding principles is a threat to the republic!

Leftist radicals hate the Constitution. Barack Obama has stated explicitly that it is an outdated document and criticized it for being “a charter of negative liberties.” Liberals in academia, the media and in government don’t believe governing officials should be restricted by the limitations imposed by the Constitution. America’s founders imposed those restrictions to prevent tyranny!

Our Constitution makes America different from any nation in the world. The protections afforded by the Constitution have allowed God to bless this nation tremendously. They prevent a dictator from seizing control of the nation’s unmatched resources—resources that God gave in order to fulfill promises He made to the patriarch Abraham.

You need to understand the real reasons why America has been the greatest nation in history. No man can “make America great again”—certainly not if he is ignorant of the fact that it was God who made it great, and ignorant about why He did so!

God has blessed America like no other nation. And the devil wants to destroy America like no other nation! Satan is marshaling every tool and weapon he can to wreck this nation, and he is having alarming success!

This evil spiritual power is influencing the deep state! Most Republicans don’t realize what they are dealing with: people who are absolutely committed to destroying the government of this land!

The mindset behind the radical Democrats is exposed when you look at their handling of another issue: “gun control.” Every time there is a school shooting, even before any facts about the situation come out, they immediately begin pushing for gun bans. After a most recent shooting, they funded student groups and encouraged students to revolt against authorities. They don’t just want to raise the buying age or to restrict the sale of a few types of guns; they want to eliminate all guns. They hate the Second Amendment and want to destroy the Constitution. They want a revolution!

Their aggressive attack on the rule of law is chopping at the pillars of our nation! Had Hillary Clinton been elected, the destructive trends that unfolded during the Obama presidency would have continued unchecked, and they surely would have intensified. Many people, including me, believe it would have meant an end to our constitutional republic!

The deep state is relentlessly waging war against the president and leading this country to its destruction! And it was only Trump’s election that prevented even worse troubles from bringing this nation down even more quickly.

For eight years under Barack Obama, the forces of the radical left were on the march, virtually unchecked. Even Republican leaders caved in, and that was after they had taken control of Congress and had a lot of power to stop the former president!

Donald Trump has proved himself willing to take a stand where others have not. It is quite something to behold him resisting these anti-American forces! He has inspired a few other leaders to challenge the radical left and help expose it for what it is.

When you compare what this president is doing to what his predecessor did, there has been a clear change in direction, one that will slow the speed at which America is being pulled apart. He is not trashing the Constitution as the previous president did. He has passed tax cuts that will help many American families. He has rolled back the universal health-care mandate and removed regulations that were hurting American businesses. The stock market has broken new records.

The president also has a very strong relationship with religious leaders, and has strongly defended religious groups. He is speaking publicly about how good and strong and even righteous America is, although the truth is that America today is none of those things.

ObamaGate

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2020 by andelino

Obama seems worried about the DOJ dropping the Flynn case, because of what the scandals will reveal about his own “corrupt and treasonous” administration.

As a new presidential election is coming up, and the last time we had one of those, we heard nothing but “Russia, Russia, Russia.” The Democrat media complex spent nearly three years of wall-to-wall coverage trying to convince you that the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russia in 2016 to rig the presidential election.

Now that these allegations have been thoroughly “disproved” the journalists are determined never to revisit the subject again.

But two major events that recently occurred are forcing the “truth” back into the spotlight. One has to do with Rep. “Pencil Neck” Adam Schiff, and the other has to do with Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

In 2017, Schiff and many other “radical leftists” were telling us through ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other media outlets that they had received “direct evidence” of collusion during “closed-door” congressional hearings.

Last week, Schiff finally released transcripts from these hearings. As it turns out, the testimony given under oath in 2017 tells a much different story from what Schiff and others were falsely telling the media.

James Clapper had been the director of national intelligence for President Barack Obama. In his testimony to Congress, he admitted that he “never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting/conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election.”

Evelyn Farkas was one of President Obama’s senior defense officials. She appeared on MSNBC in March 2017 and said that information about Trump colluding with Russia existed, and she feared that the new Trump administration would destroy it. She encouraged her former co-workers to leak or spread whatever information they had throughout the intelligence community.

Three months later, however, Farkas was asked under oath what “information” on Trump-Russia collusion she was aware of. “I didn’t know anything,” she said. She just “felt” there was such intelligence out there somewhere.

After hearing all of this sworn testimony three years ago, Adam Schiff stepped in front of news cameras over and again, talking repeatedly about the “evidence” he had against Donald Trump.

Even last week, when Schiff released the transcripts, he said they “richly detail evidence of the Trump campaign’s efforts to invite, make use of, and cover up Russia’s help in the 2016 presidential election.”

Even when his “lies” are fully exposed, he continues to “lie.”

On the same day Schiff released the transcripts, another big development occurred. The Department of Justice moved to drop its case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

Obama’s FBI had investigated Flynn for alleged illegal ties to Russia. It was ready to close its investigation on Jan. 4, 2017, a couple of weeks before President Trump was inaugurated and Flynn became his national security advisor.

But the investigation was kept open due to the efforts of agent Peter Strzok, acting on orders from the “seventh floor.” Why did the FBI and Department of Justice keep that case open?

What is gradually being revealed in all of this is far bigger than Flynn or the attorney general or the president.

It has now emerged that the Justice Department’s lead prosecutor, Brandon Van Grack, had evidence that actually “cleared” Flynn. Yet when he told the judge that the department had turned over all the evidence to Flynn’s legal team, that “evidence” was withheld.

Why?

In the motion to dismiss charges against Flynn, the Department of Justice attached about 80 pages of exhibits. Exhibit 4 is an FBI 302 document regarding a Jan. 5, 2017, meeting led by Obama in the Oval Office with Vice President Joe Biden and the administration’s top intelligence officials: “Director Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Director James Comey, NSA Director Michael Rogers, National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.”

At the end of the meeting, Obama instructed everyone to leave except Yates and Comey—the two individuals who would be continuing their jobs under incoming President Trump.

According to the FBI document, President Obama himself was very well informed about Flynn’s (perfectly legal) phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. In fact, he was the one who informed Yates about it. “Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. At that point, Yates had no idea what the president was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation.”

Why is this significant?

A couple of weeks later, Trump took office and Flynn was appointed. But because it had an investigation open, the FBI was able to interview Flynn in his office at the White House.

What was the purpose of that interview? To set a “perjury” trap! To try to force Flynn to “resign” almost as soon as he was appointed, and to hopefully lead to a “conviction” against him and a “blow” to the new Trump administration.

And it worked.

Attorney General William Barr was blunt last week about the reason the Department of Justice is now withdrawing its case against Flynn. This was “not a legitimate counterintelligence investigation,” he said. The reason the DOJ and the FBI kept the case open was “for the express purpose of trying to … lay a perjury trap.”

Strzok kept the investigation open on orders from the “seventh floor.” That refers to the highest officials of the FBI: including Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Director Comey himself! Who was over Comey? Yates. And who called both Comey and Yates to the Oval Office and gave them their marching orders immediately prior to the beginning of the Trump administration? “President Barack Obama.”

More and more evidence points to this: The “deep state’s” entrapment of Michael Flynn traces back to “Barack Obama” himself!

The possibility of a sitting president using the nation’s security and intelligence power against his successor is “bombshell” news, no matter who you are or how you look at it. But what has been the media’s reaction to this major news event? Mainstream journalists and other “radical leftists” have not revisited the actual evidence (or lack thereof) against Flynn.

They have instead tried to spin the news cycle into accusations that Barr is subverting “justice” to do President Trump’s bidding.

Obama himself even weighed in over the weekend, saying it was unprecedented for someone “charged with perjury to get off scot-free.” As Prof. Jonathan Turley wrote in response, Obama got it wrong on the charge and on the lack of precedent. But judging by the mainstream news coverage, you’d never know it.

In spite of the incredible power wielded—then and now—by Obama, the deep state and the mainstream media, there are more revelations to come. But from what we are seeing already, it is clear that the “corrupt and treasonous” Obama White House administration is being exposed.

Fearing that recent revelations will reflect badly on his administration Obama has taken to providing talking points directly to his minions rather than filtering them through the usual channels ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WAPO, LAT.

That frees these channels up to carry on with the more important news while the Obamabots take to the Twitterverse to  stoke it up with the Obama directed “Orange Man Bad” meme du jour.

What were the former President’s criticisms? For one he called the current administration’s response to the pandemic “an absolute chaotic disaster.”

“And by the way, we’re seeing that internationally as well. It’s part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty. It would have been bad even with the best of governments. It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset — of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else’ — when that mindset is operationalized in our government.”

Because, according to the MSM, there was never any chaotic disasters during the Obama years. And then there was this:

“This election that’s coming up on every level is so important because what we’re going to be battling is not just a particular individual or a political party. What we’re fighting against is these long term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life.”

Yes….. selfish, tribal, divided, and seeing others as an enemy? Smells like “corrupt and treasonous” Obama liberalism to me.

James Comey’s Cuban Exile

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on July 6, 2019 by andelino

James Comey tweeted from his “Paradise Hotel“ in Cuba. He better not to run out of “Yanqui” money during this glorious and “lengthy” Cuban exile.

James Comey’s “Cuban” exile is getting noticeably warmer according to Attorney General William Barr’s intend to examine carefully how and why Comey, as FBI director, decided that the bureau should investigate “two presidential campaigns” and if, in so doing, any “rules or laws” were broken.

In light of this, the “fired” former FBI director apparently has decided that photos of him on Twitter “standing” amid tall trees and in the middle of “empty” country roads, acting all “metaphysical” is no longer a sufficient strategy.

Comey has “realized”, probably too late, that he has to try to “counter”, more directly, the “narrative” being set by the unsparing attorney general whose “briefings” in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week landed in the Trump “opposition” world. Shrieking heads haven’t stopped spinning since.

And so we’ve seen Comey get real “busy” lately. First he penned a curious op-ed “How Trump Co-opts Leaders Like Bill Barr” in The New York Times. Then a Times reporter, with whom Comey has “cooperated” in the past, wrote a news article exposing an early, “controversial” investigative technique against the Trump campaign in an attempt to get out front and excuse it.

Next, Comey is scheduled to be encouraged to “share” his story on a friendly cable news town hall two years after Trump “fired” him.

In the op-ed, Comey trotted out his now-familiar St. James “schtick”, freely pronouncing on the “morality” of others. He sees himself as a kind of “Pontiff-of-the-Potomac” working his beads, but comes across more like an unraveling “Captain Queeg” working his ball bearings.

Comey adjudged the president as “amoral.” He declared the attorney general to be “formidable” but “lacking inner strength” unlike — the inference is clear — Comey himself. A strategy of “insulting” the executioner right before he swings his “ax” is an odd one but, then, Comey has a long record of odd “decisions and questionable judgment.”

“Amoral leaders, referring to the president, have a way of revealing the character of those around them,” wrote Comey without a hint of “irony or self-awareness.” Those whom the former FBI director assembled around him probably “rue the day” they ever met the man. Most are now “fired or disgraced” for appalling behaviors that Comey found easy to “manipulate” to advance his decisions.

Then, just to make sure his op-ed was odd-salted to the max, Comey mused that the president “eats your soul in small bites.” OK, let’s step back for a moment: “James Comey appears to be in trouble. His strange, desperate statements and behaviors betray his nervousness and apprehension.” In a way, it’s hard to watch.

Comey will claim that “everything” he did in the FBI was by the book. But after the “investigations” by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Huber, along with Barr’s promised examination, are completed, Comey’s “mishandling” of the FBI and legal processes likely will be fully exposed.

Barr’s examination will “aggregate” information that addresses three “primary” streams.

The first will be whether the investigations into both presidential nominees and the Trump campaign were adequately, in Barr’s words, “predicated.” This means he will examine whether there was sufficient “justification” under existing guidelines for the FBI to have started an “investigation” in the first place.

The Mueller report’s “conclusions” make this a fair question for the “counterintelligence” investigation of the Trump campaign. Comey’s own pronouncement, that the Clinton email case was unprosecutable, makes it a fair question for that investigation.

The second will be whether Comey’s team obeyed long-established investigative “guidelines” while conducting the investigations and, specifically, if there was sufficient, truthful justification to lawfully conduct “electronic surveillance” of an American citizen.

The third will be an examination of whether Comey was unduly “influenced” by political agendas emanating from the Obama White House and its director of “national intelligence, CIA director and attorney general.” This, above all, is what’s causing the 360-degree “head” spins.

There are early indicators that troubling “behaviors” may have occurred in all three scenarios. Barr will want to zero in on a particular area of concern: “the use by the FBI of confidential human sources, whether its own or those offered up by the then-CIA director. “

Without diving into the weeds, it’s important to understand that FBI “counterintelligence” investigations generally proceed sequentially from what is called a “preliminary” investigation or inquiry (PI) to a full investigation (FI). To move from a PI to an FI requires substantial information — “predication” — indicating investigative targets acted as “agents of a foreign power.”

This is “problematic” for Comey in light of Mueller’s findings. There are strict guidelines governing when the FBI can “task” a confidential source or a government undercover operative to “collect” against a U.S. citizen. Normally this is “restricted” to a full investigation, and normally restricted to the United States, not overseas.

There is a sense that Comey’s team was not “checking” the boxes, did not have adequate “predication“, and may have tasked “source” before an investigation was even “officially” opened.  Barr should pull case files and dig in on this.

In addition, the cast of characters leveraged by the FBI against the Trump campaign all appear to have their genesis as CIA sources (“assets,” in agency vernacular) shared at times with the FBI. From Stefan Halper and possibly Joseph Mifsud, to Christopher Steele, to Carter Page himself, and now a mysterious “government investigator” posing as Halper’s assistant and cited in The New York Times article, legitimate questions arise as to whether Comey was manipulated into furthering a CIA political operation more than an FBI counterintelligence case.

Some in the media have suggested that the Times article was an attempt by the FBI to “justify” its early confidential source actions. But current FBI Director Christopher Wray has shown that he would like to “excise” the cancerous tumor that grew during Comey’s time and not just keep smoking. It’s hard to imagine current FBI executives trying to justify past “malfeasance.”

James Comey is right to be apprehensive. He himself ate away at the soul of the FBI, not in small bites but in dangerously large ones. It was a dinner for one, though: “His actions are not indicative of the real FBI.” The attorney general’s comprehensive examination is welcome and, if done honestly and dispassionately, it will protect future presidential candidates of both parties and redeem the valuable soul of the FBI.
