Whistleblower Unmasked

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on November 25, 2019 by andelino

There is a flurry of so called “whistleblower” news spots focused on a young man who has been in the White House since Obama took office.

This has resulted in a significant flow of “on-line articles” and so-called photos of this “person” with the implication he is: “The whistleblower” and “An operator in Obama’s deep-state coup.

All this conjecture and speculation is what the Mueller “Witch Hunt” and the Schiff “Impeach Fiasco” are built upon.

A year after Ukraine official and whistleblower Eric Ciaramella left President Trump’s White House, a picture of him shaking Barack Obama’s hand was published on a close friend’s wedding website.

The Oval Office photograph is circulating among Trump allies who consider it evidence that the whistleblower is biased against Trump and had partisan motivations when he filed an Aug. 12 complaint that sparked impeachment proceedings.

Ukraine specialist Eric Ciaramella poses for a photo with former President Barack Obama at the White House. The photo was published on the website for a friend’s 2018 wedding.

In the photograph, a smiling Ciaramella, then Ukraine director on the “National Security Council” at the White House, is shown shaking Obama’s hand. They are standing in front of a portrait of Abraham Lincoln by George Henry Story.

Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella was close friends at the White House with an official who is now a “key aide” to Adam Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman leading the Democratic push to “impeach” President Trump.

In an interview Sen. Rand Paul called for the Ukraine whistleblower to testify as a fact witness in the impeachment inquiry against President Trump:

“I think Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony… he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there and Hunter Biden was working for Ukrainian oligarchs. Simply for that, I think he is a material witness and needs to be brought in, the other question is, while the whistleblower is protected from being fired or from retaliation in court proceedings, the whistleblower is not protected from being asked who gave him the information, because we can’t have a country where the private contents of the president’s phone calls are leaked to people who are not supposed to be in that loop.

I think all these questions have to be asked. I don’t think the whistleblower statute was never intended to have criminal trials and people put before the penalty of criminal justice without being able to hear from their accusers. So I think ultimately, he should testify. Adam Schiff is going to prevent it in the House. In the Senate, I will be advocating that if it comes to the Senate, we haven’t had a vote yet of what the rules should be. By a simple minority, we should make the rules that the president is allowed to call all his witnesses, and then it is up to the president who he wants to call as his witnesses.”

The Radical Left’s War

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on January 9, 2019 by andelino

People do not realize just how close the nation is to collapse. 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 these days is something you cannot afford to ignore.

We are witnessing a government—and a nation—on the verge of “civil war!” 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! President 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!

Mr. 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 Mr. 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. Donald Trump wanted Comey to relay that message to the public, but he wouldn’t—because it was a lie! So President 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 is based on a “hoax.” Robert Mueller’s team has been searching for evidence of collusion for over two years 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 during his presidency.

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!

We are getting a hard look at just what the “radical left” is willing to do in order to seize power and stay in power. 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 prevented a dictator from seizing control of the nation’s unmatched resources and allowed this nation’s tremendously growth.

Most Republicans don’t realize what they are dealing with: “radical 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 the 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!

President Trump is fighting serious problems. But the radical left 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 President 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 Obama!

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.

President Trump 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.

Obama Deep State

The Media, Obama, and the Deep State
by Robert Barnes 14 Mar 2017

Whenever the media loses control over a powerful term, be it “fake news” or “deep state,” they react with infantile rage, and immediately demand cessation of the term in its “unapproved” use.

As part of that process, they attempt to restrict its historical application to some definition that delimits its use against their ideological interest. Their attempt to re-script the meaning of words gives new meaning to Orwellian for the media’s would-be Ministry of Information.

Maybe CNN will set up a lexicon where we can go and see which words we are allowed to use to ascribe their own activities, much as Chris Cuomo insinuated it was illegal for anyone to look at Wikileaks information, except exclusively at CNN. What this all really covers up in this context is that the media has long been an enabler of the deep state against the democratic demands of the public. No, CNN, the idea of the deep state didn’t start in Turkey, and no, New York Times, pretending the deep state doesn’t exist doesn’t clothe the naked emperor.

The legal and historic idea of the deep state originated in America in a trilogy of studies by a trio of political scholars. The originalist behind the idea was German emigre Ernst Fraenkel who identified Nazi Germany’s path to dictatorship as rooted in the “dual state” where an anti-democratic “prerogative state” often controls much of a government’s policy without regard to, or respect of, legal and democratic constraints.

The idea gained currency in the scholastic community with a famous 1955 study of our State Department by Hans Morgenthau which concluded the American government increasingly and precariously employed a “dual state,” defined as a democratic state and a “security” state whose “hidden security hierarchy monitors and controls” the democratic part of the state for the institutional and ideological interests of “this parallel security” state. Both Eisenhower and Kennedy followed up on the concept in Eisenhower’s respective farewell address famously warning about the “military industrial complex” of our own government and Kennedy’s parallel speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association ten days after the failed “Bay of Pigs” in ascribing the method of communist governments.

The idea expanded into the “deep state” in the broader journalistic community when Professor Peter Dale Scott in 1993 coined the term “deep politics” to explain aspects of American politics since the 1950’s. An American journalist then applied it to explain certain issues that arose in Turkey in 1996, but its ideological bonafides has been long applied to American politics and politics more generally around the globe.

A long-time D.C. staffer applied it to our government again in a popular political text, The Deep State, for how the machinery of the bureaucracy is increasingly immune from the votes of the public in ascribing and prescribing the government’s actual policy toward its own citizenry and those abroad. The latter took root in certain conservative populist communities, with some overlap from Nader-ite leftists, though the en-bubbled media missed it all, apparently.

Instead, CNN, The New York Times, and The Economist would have us believe the “deep state” only refers to some odd, foreign country, like Turkey, and can never be honestly applied here. This is especially ironic for The Economist because it was one of their original editors in chief, Walter Bagehot, from the 1860’s who first circulated the idea of a “double government.”

As leftist reporter Glenn Greenwald has reported, and liberal newscaster Ed Schultz continues to emphasize, the establishment media’s over-use of anonymous sourcing allows deep state members to smear a disfavored political persona, like Trump or Michael Flynn (under constant assault in media reports long after he left the White House), and others. As both journalists warn, when the media “reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials,” it dis-serves its First Amendment role as a check on power and, instead, becomes an enabler of that anti-democratic power.

The rise of Wikileaks, and its increasing popularity across the left and right ends of the populist political spectrum, reflects an increasingly common view that the media is the corrupted power brokers, not a check on those corrupted power brokers. As Greenwald aptly summarizes: “cheering for the CIA and its shadowy allies to unilaterally subvert the U.S. election and impose its own policy dictates on the elected president is both warped and self-destructive.” Trump’s tweets last week directed attention to precisely that issue: illegal intercepts and illicit leaks of those intercepts should be the scandal, not incredulous reports of collusion unsupported by the legally innocent conversations found on those intercepts.

Obama went into bed with the deep state. After promising to protect the public from unlawful spying, one of his first acts was to immunize those members of the deep state who did so illicitly. After promising transparency, one of Obama’s first acts was for his NSA Director Clapper to perjure himself  to Congress about NSA spying on Americans, after which Obama promoted Clapper to head of the Office of National Intelligence, a two-step act that gave us Edward Snowden. After promising public disclosure, Obama prosecuted more whistle-blowers than all 44 of his Presidential predecessors combined. After promising public access, Obama delayed and obstructed more FOIA requests than anyone, and his Secretary of States infamously hid emails in a private email server that could have masked her Clinton Cash activities from public view.

Is it any surprise then that Obama could possibly use the deep state to undermine the election, spy on his political adversaries (as he did to CBS reporter Sharyl Attkison, where she found government IP-based hackers turning her computer on and off during the night, along with the Obama administration spying on Fox reporter James Rosen and AP reporters), and likely eavesdrop on Trump (based on the many New York Times reports referencing “intercepted” calls of “Trump campaign members”). What is unique is Obama trying to use the deep state, in collusion with the media, to create a de facto shadow government.

Aside from its anti-democratic instincts, the other great threat from the deep state is its incestuous insularity. The deep state advised coups, overthrows, and assassinations against democratic governments, like Guatemala in 1954 and Congo in 1961, that birthed civil wars and gangs that hollowed out democratic hopes in those countries for decades and haunt us to this day. The deep state’s poor advice misread the popularity of the Shah in Iran (giving us the 1979 revolution, which led into the nuclear would-be threat they are today) [cite?], the misguided idea of arming the Taliban in Afghanistan (birthing much of modern-day radical Islamic terror as a political movement), and the mirrored debacles in failed nation-states and now terror-riddled Iraq and Libya.

The failure of the media to expose the deep state’s miscalculations and their misdeeds, remains one of the great media failures of the last decade. Why did the media say there were WMD’s in Iraq? Because the deep state told them so. Why does the media say there cannot be tapped calls on Trump two days before Wikileaks discloses massive CIA spying capabilities through smart phones, and even TVs? Because they refuse to expose the deep state. Instead, they pen pieces saying the deep state doesn’t exist, or only exists even as an historic idea in Turkey. What a bunch of turkey that is.

In this respect, a trip down memory lane is productive. Contrary to conventional wisdom, America’s most famed “whistle-blower,” “Deep Throat,” was anything but innocent in his intentions. The operative who went by the alias of “Deep Throat” was integral to the corrupted parts of the FBI under Hoover, and reacted with rage when Nixon tried to DE-Hooverize the FBI. Nixon made enough mistakes to last a lifetime, and his resignation was well-warranted, but that cannot mask the criminality and anti-democratic purposes of his primary antagonist.

Mark Felt, aka “Deep Throat,” was actually one of the principal culprits behind COINTELPRO, a deep state operation within the FBI that misused and abused government power to spy on, and sabotage, domestic political movements in the United States. Felt had agents break into people’s homes, conduct black bag jobs against innocent American citizens, and engaged in campaigns to discredit and disrupt various anti-war, civil rights, and other deep-state-disfavored political groups. Felt was later indicted and convicted, which enraged Felt, who felt he was beyond the reach of the law, stating all that mattered is that he felt what he did was “in the best interests of the country” and could not be indicted on “technical” reasons, those “technical” reasons being a conspiracy to violate American’s most protected Constitutional rights. Felt personified the deep state. And the man that made him a hero is our most celebrated journalist alive: Bob Woodward.

What does the deep state campaign against Trump look like? Just like COINTELPRO, from the illegal surveillance to the unlawful disinformation campaigns. That’s not a coincidence, any more than Trump hinting at the scope of this problem in his tweets and his historical analogizing it to the fascists coup of power in Europe in the 1930s. His real meaning of tying in Obama was to clue in observers that Obama had got into bed with the deep state, and wiretapping your opponents is one of the great harms such ugly marriages bring.

It’s a marriage — “between the media and the deep state” — that has long called for a needed divorce.
