IF THE FBI KNOCKS ON YOUR DOOR, YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS





WOULD YOU KNOW HOW TO RESPOND IF FEDERAL AGENTS KNOCKED ON YOUR DOOR, WITH OR WITHOUT WITHOUT A WARRANT, AND WANTED TO QUESTION YOU?

FIRST, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PROVIDE ANY IDENTIFICATION TO AGENTS WHO HAVE NO WARRANT.
"A law enforcement official can only obtain your name and address if he or she has a reasonable suspicion to believe that you have committed or are about to commit a crime [note #2]. Thus, if an FBI agent knocks at your door you do not have to identify yourself to him; you can simply say "I don't want to talk to you," or "You'll have to speak to my lawyer," and then close the door. An FBI agent, unlike a local police officer, does not have jurisdiction to investigate violations of state statute."

ALWAYS VERIFY THEIR IDENTITY. INSIST ON CREDENTIALS. IF NECESSARY, CALL THE AGENCY TO DO THIS AS MANY FAKE IDs EXIST TODAY.

SECONDLY, IF THERE IS NO WARRANT, AS STATED ABOVE, YOU MAY JUST CLOSE YOUR DOOR AND END THE ENCOUNTER.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO SPEAK WITH AGENTS, STEP OUTSIDE YOUR HOME AND CLOSE THE DOOR BEHIND YOU.


BEFORE YOU VENTURE OUT, ANNOUNCE THAT YOU ARE BRINGING A VIDEO CAMERA OR SOME OTHER RECORDING DEVICE OUT WITH YOU AND INFORM THEM THAT YOU INTEND TO TAPE THE ENTIRE ENCOUNTER OUTSIDE YOUR HOME,

LIKE A STORY OF A TEXAS WOMAN WHO FACED THIS SITUATION EXPLAINED <HERE> ,
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ALLOW THEM INSIDE.
HAVE THEM STATE EXACTLY WHY THEY ARE THERE.
IF MORE THAN ONE AGENT IS PRESENT, ASK ALL OF THEM THE SAME QUESTION, "WHY ARE YOU HERE?" THEN TO QUALIFY THEIR ANSWERS, ASK, "IS THAT THE ONLY REASON YOU'RE HERE?"

THIRDLY, REMAIN CALM, KEEP YOUR HANDS VISIBLE TO THE AGENTS AT ALL TIMES, MAKE NO SUDDEN MOVES, DO NOT BEHAVE AGGRESSIVELY.

BE RESPECTFUL, BUT REMEMBER YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT.

WHILE "PLEADING THE 5TH" WORKS FOR MOST AND HAS SURELY WORKED FOR A LOT OF POLITICIANS, INCLUDING PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES AND SECRETARIES OF STATE, ETC, REFUSING TO ANSWER QUESTIONS IS FROWNED UPON BY MANY.


DON'T LET THAT SWAY YOU.
SAYING NOTHING CONVICTS YOU OF NOTHING.
YOU MAY STATE THAT YOU CHOOSE NOT TO ANSWER 'AT THIS TIME'.

YOU MAY NOT KNOW THAT FEDERAL AGENTS CAN LIE TO YOU TO GET YOU TO DISCLOSE INFORMATION, BUT IF YOU LIE TO AN AGENT, YOU CAN GO TO JAIL.
AFTER ALL, YOU WON'T KNOW IF THEY ARE RECORDING YOU BY SOME TYPE OF HIDDEN DEVICE.


NEVER SAY SOMETHING LIKE, "I KNOW WHY YOU'RE HERE."
EVERYTHING YOU SAY CAN BE CONSTRUED AS "VOLUNTEERING INFORMATION".

THERE IS ALSO A PAMPHLET THAT VERY SIMPLY EXPLAINS YOUR RIGHTS IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS.
IT IS AVAILABLE IN SEVERAL LANGUAGES AS AN INSTANT DOWNLOAD AT <THE CENTER FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS>.
IT IS AVAILABLE IN PLAIN TEXT AT http://bcn.boulder.co.us/environment/vail/ifanagentknocks.html.
IT IS ALSO SHOWN ON THE WEBSITE DETAILING THE TEXAS WOMAN'S ENCOUNTER.

AFTER THE AGENTS HAVE LEFT, IT MAY BE WISE TO CONTACT AN ATTORNEY AND AT LEAST DOCUMENT THAT YOU WERE APPROACHED BY FEDERAL AGENTS.


Are there any circumstances under which it is advisable to cooperate with an FBI investigation?
Never without a lawyer.
There are situations, however, in which an investigation appears to be legitimate, narrowly focused, and not designed to gather political intelligence.
Such an investigation might occur if you have been the victim of a crime, or are a witness to civil rights violations being prosecuted by the federal government.
Under those circumstances, you should work closely with a lawyer to see that your rights are protected while you provide only necessary information relevant to a specific incident. Lawyers may be able to avoid a witness' appearance before a grand jury, or control the circumstances of the appearance so that no one's rights are jeopardized.

DO BE AWARE THAT THE TACTICAL OPERATIONS UNIT OF THE FBI AND OTHER AGENCIES ARE, FOR ALL INTENT AND PURPOSE, COURT-SANCTIONED BURGLARS.

THEY CAN AND HAVE QUIETLY BROKEN INTO HOMES, OFFICES, ETC, AND PLANTED 'BUGGING DEVICES' WHICH MAY HAVE RECORDED EVERY WORD SAID WITHIN RANGE.
THIS WAS PERHAPS EXPLAINED BEST IN RONALD KESSLER'S BOOK, THE SECRETS OF THE FBI.

IF YOU THINK YOUR INDOOR CANINE PAL WILL PREVENT THIS, THINK AGAIN.

AS KESSLER WARNS, THE FBI HAS VETERINARIANS ON CONTRACT WHO CAN PROVIDE BOTH TRANQUILIZERS AND "WAKE-UP DRUGS" THAT WILL SAFELY DISABLE 'FIDO' WHILE THEY ARE ON THE PREMISES.


IF YOU ARE NOT HOME WHEN AGENTS COME TO CALL BUT A FAMILY MEMBER OR GUEST IS, OR EVEN A NEIGHBOR WHO HAS A KEY TO YOUR HOME, BE AWARE THAT, IF THEY ALLOW THE AGENTS INSIDE, THOSE AGENTS CAN LOOK AROUND WHERE THEY PLEASE.
THEY CAN EVEN WALK OUT WITH ANYTHING THEY DEEM "EVIDENCE".

BE SURE TO DISCUSS THIS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

THE SAME APPLIES TO BUSINESS OFFICES.



IF THE WORST HAPPENS...

Q: Agents arrested me in my home. Can they search my house?
A: The area near where you are arrested can be searched without a warrant. But your entire house cannot be searched unless there is a warrant that describes in detail the places to be searched and the people or things to be seized.


Q: What if agents have a search warrant?
A: You have the right to see the warrant. The warrant must tell in detail the places to be searched and the people or things to be seized. If the police have a warrant, you cannot stop them from entering and searching, but you can and should tell them to search only where the warrant authorizes. Ask if you are allowed to watch the search; if you are allowed to, you should. You should take notes including names, badge numbers, and what agency the officers are from. If others are present, have them act as witnesses. Give the information from you and your witnesses to your lawyer.


Q: Do I have to answer questions if the police have a search warrant?
A: No. You may be asked questions before, during, or after the search. A search warrant does not mean you have to answer questions.


ALSO BE AWARE THAT THE FBI, AS WELL AS OTHER AGENCIES, HAVE A HABIT OF CHARGING YOU WITH AN EASILY PROVABLE "CRIME" SO THEY CAN OBTAIN WARRANTS FOR SOMETHING ELSE ALTOGETHER WHICH MIGHT BE HARDER TO PROVE.

EXAMPLE:
FCC REGULATIONS ARE MANY AND LITTLE KNOWN, BUT ANY CONSUMER CAN BE "GUILTY" OF BREAKING ONE OF THESE MULTITUDE OF LITTLE RULES.
DID YOU DOWNLOAD COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL, SONGS, MOVIES?
ARE YOU "BORROWING OR LENDING" WI-FI, ACCEPTING OR GIVING ACCESS TO ANOTHER'S INTERNET OR TV SERVICE?

"According to the pseudo-copyright regime that Big Cable and Hollywood believe in, your television manufacturer needed a contract to show you a movie, your router needed a license to stream video data to your smart phone, and before you activated your personally built computer at home you would need a license to view content on the internet. It gets worse than just arguments for new rights to controls that have no basis in copyright law.

The Unlock the (Set-Top) Box opponents even express fears about user-empowering technologies from 30 years ago. The Recording Industry Association of America, for example, expressed concerns that third-party set-top box devices will include features such as the ability to manually or automatically record streaming content ."

"By 2010, the FCC enacted open Internet rules, but the agency's legal approach was eventually struck down. FCC officials would erase the legal ambiguity by no longer classifying the Internet as an "information service" but a "telecommunications service" subject to Title II of the 1934 Communications Act."

YOU MAY BE 'BUSTED' FOR SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THAT, OR ACCUSED ALONG THE LINES OF THE FCC's "OBSCENITY, INDECENCY AND PROFANITY" LAWS, SO THE FEDS CAN HAVE A LONG LOOK AROUND FOR EVIDENCE REGARDING SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY.
WHERE THERE'S A WILL, THE FBI MAKES A WAY.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS, KNOW THE LAW.
KNOWING BOTH CAN KEEP US ALL OUT OF JAIL IF WE EVER BECOME TARGETS OF ONE OF OUR 'BIG BROTHER' AGENCIES WHO ARE WATCHING US 24 HOURS A SAY, EVERY DAY, AND EVERYWHERE WE GO.

AS I HAVE WRITTEN BEFORE, WE ARE EASILY TRACKED BY THE CHIPS IN OUR CREDIT CARDS, CELL PHONES, PETS' MICROCHIPS, GROCERY STORE "DISCOUNT CARDS", DRIVER'S LICENSES, AUTOMOBILE TAGS AND AUTOMOBILE ONBOARD COMPUTERIZED HARDWARE AND STORE PURCHASES, JUST TO NAME A FEW.

WE ARE BASICALLY SITTING DUCKS, BUT WE CAN BE INFORMED DUCKS AND AVOID A LOT OF UNNECESSARY GRIEF WHEN DEALING WITH OUR BELOVED WATCHERS.

KNOWLEDGE EMPOWERS. 

IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NOT A VALID EXCUSE.

CIA NSA FBI WHISTLEBLOWERS, OUR OWN SPY AGENCIES ARE BIGGER THREATS THAN RUSSIA

IN MAY OF 2016, 'THE GUARDIAN' PUBLISHED AN EXTRAORDINARY ARTICLE ENTITLED " HOW THE PENTAGON PUNISHED NSA WHISTLEBLOWERS" .

MOST LIKELY, VERY FEW AMERICANS READ THAT ARTICLE, BUT EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD.
IT SHOWS THE LENGTHS AMERICA'S 'SPY AGENCIES' WILL GO TO TO STOP WHISTLEBLOWERS FROM REVEALING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC JUST HOW CLOSELY AND HOW ILLEGALLY WE ARE ALL BEING MONITORED, 24 HOURS A DAY.
"By now, almost everyone knows what Edward Snowden did. He leaked top-secret documents revealing that the National Security Agency was spying on hundreds of millions of people across the world, collecting the phone calls and emails of virtually everyone on Earth who used a mobile phone or the internet.

But if you want to know why Snowden did it, and the way he did it, you have to know the stories of two other men.

The first is Thomas Drake, who blew the whistle on the very same NSA activities 10 years before Snowden did. Drake was a much higher-ranking NSA official than Snowden, and he obeyed US whistleblower laws, raising his concerns through official channels. And he got crushed.

Drake was fired, arrested at dawn by gun-wielding FBI agents, stripped of his security clearance, charged with crimes that could have sent him to prison for the rest of his life, and all but ruined financially and professionally. The only job he could find afterwards was working in an Apple store in suburban Washington, where he remains today.
Adding insult to injury, his warnings about the dangers of the NSA’s surveillance programme were largely ignored.

But there is another man whose story has never been told before, who is speaking out publicly for the first time here. His name is John Crane, and he was a senior official in the Department of Defense who fought to provide fair treatment for whistleblowers such as Thomas Drake – until Crane himself was forced out of his job and became a whistleblower as well.

According to Thomas Devine, the legal director of the Government Accountability Project (GAP), was that he practised “civil disobedience” rather than “lawful” whistleblowing. (GAP, a non-profit group in Washington, DC, that defends whistleblowers, has represented Snowden, Drake and Crane.)

“None of the lawful whistleblowers who tried to expose the government’s warrantless surveillance – and Drake was far from the only one who tried – had any success,” Devine told me.

“They came forward and made their charges, but the government just said, ‘They’re lying, they’re paranoid, we’re not doing those things.’ And the whistleblowers couldn’t prove their case because the government had classified all the evidence.
Whereas Snowden took the evidence with him, so when the government issued its usual denials, he could produce document after document showing that they were lying. That is civil disobedience whistleblowing.”

The Bush administration’s mass surveillance efforts were partly exposed in December 2005, when the New York Times published a front page article by reporters James Risen and Eric Lichtblau, which revealed that the NSA was monitoring international phone calls and emails of some people in the US without obtaining warrants.

Eight years later, that story would be dwarfed by Snowden’s revelations. But at the time, the Bush White House was furious – and they were determined to find and punish whoever had leaked the details to the New York Times.

POLICE STATE..."MISSION ACCOMPLISHED"
"We are now becoming a police state,” Diane Roark said in a 2014 television interview. Referring to herself and the other NSA whistleblowers, she added, “We are the canaries in the coal mine. We never did anything wrong. All we did was oppose this programme. And for that, they just ran over us.”

“They’re saying, ‘We’re doing this to protect you,’” Roark’s fellow whistleblower William Binney told me. “I will tell you that that’s exactly what the Nazis said in Special Order 48 in 1933 – we’re doing this to protect you. And that’s how they got rid of all of their political opponents.”

CHILLING, ISN'T IT?
BUT THAT ISN'T REALLY EVEN THE TIP OF THE PROVERBIAL ICEBERG.




THE MOST RECENT CIA/NSA WHISTLE-BLOWER, FORMER CONTRACTOR DENNIS MONTGOMERY, WENT TO CONGRESS TWO YEARS AGO WITH 47 HARD DRIVES AND OVER 600 MILLION PAGES OF EVIDENCE THAT INCLUDED PROOF THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS BEING MONITORED.
THEY SENT HIM AWAY.
THEY ALSO KEPT QUIET ABOUT WHAT HE REVEALED TO THEM.
TWO YEARS AGO.

WAS WHAT HE TOOK AWAY FROM THE CIA/NSA PART OF THAT MASSIVE WIKILEAKS DUMP IN EARLY MARCH?
OR WAS THAT MORE FROM THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY INSIDER AND COMPUTER PROGRAMMER WHOM JULIAN ASSANGE INSINUATED LEAKED THE PODESTA FILES... THE MURDERED SETH RICH?

MARCH 8, 2017
"With the WikiLeaks document dump yesterday, it is now virtually certain that the intelligence agencies, despite court rulings by the Honorable Richard J. Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, are continuing to violate the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution by engaging in massive spying on the American people.

Specifically, the WikiLeaks documents revealed that "our" intelligence agencies have the power to turn on our smart televisions and cellphones and eavesdrop on a 24/7 basis.


The key to getting to the bottom of all of this does not lie with congressional committees, but with the court of Judge Leon.


The Senate and House intelligence committees have outrageously known about this massive spying for many years, and covered it up. So too has the FBI, at its highest levels, which is supposed to be investigating this illegal spying, thanks to the information and documentation provided to them under grant of immunity by my client, whistleblower Dennis Montgomery. Montgomery, under grant of immunity to produce classified documents he had taken from the agencies, has even testified under oath to FBI Special Agents William Giardina and William Barnett, working under the authority and direction of FBI Director Comey and his General Counsel James Baker. Importantly, much of what was revealed by WikiLeaks yesterday, Montgomery already had informed the FBI about, including but not limited to the software which allows for this massive spying."

"When Montgomery came forward as a whistleblower to congressional intelligence committees and various other congressmen and senators, including Senator Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who, like Comey, once had a reputation for integrity, he was “blown off;” no one wanted to even hear what he had to say.

As a result, Montgomery went to attorney [former federal prosecutor at the Department of Justice] and Freedom Watch and Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman - who then approached the FBI:

Under grants of immunity, which I (KLAYMAN) obtained through Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, Montgomery produced the hard drives and later was interviewed under oath in a secure room at the FBI Field Office in the District of Columbia. There he laid out how persons like then-businessman Donald Trump were illegally spied upon by Clapper, Brennan, and the spy agencies of the Obama administration."

THIS IS THE REALITY OF LIFE IN AMERICA TODAY. 

WE LIVE IN A POLICE STATE BECAUSE OUR OWN GOVERNMENT, LIKE ANCIENT ROME, IS AFRAID OF ITS OWN CITIZENS AND MILITARY.
WE ARE UNDER 24-HOUR SURVEILLANCE AND THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION BEING COLLECTED ON ALL OF US IS BEYOND COMPREHENSION.
READ THE OFFICIAL LETTER SENT TO NUNES IN FULL, IN PDF FORM <HERE>.

[NOTE: THAT IS AN INSTANT DOWNLOAD FILE.]

AS KLAYMAN EXPLAINS:


"During my meeting with House Intelligence Committee counsel Allen R. Sousa I politely warned him that if Chairman Nunes, who himself had that same day undercut President Trump by also claiming that there is no evidence of surveillance by the Obama administration, I would go public with what would appear to be the House Intelligence Committee’s complicity in keeping the truth from the American people and allowing the FBI to continue its apparent cover-up of the Montgomery “investigation.”

And, that is where it stands today. The big question: will House Intelligence Committee Chairman Nunes do his job and hold FBI Director Comey’s feet to the fire about the Montgomery investigation?

[NOTE: Klayman has detailed all of this in a NewsMax article,]

WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST TWO DAYS IS BECAUSE OF THAT AGENT COMING FORWARD AND BECAUSE THE MAN WHOM HE WAS ABLE TO CONVINCE TO LOOK AT ALL THAT EVIDENCE SENT A LETTER TO CONGRESS SAYING IF THEY DIDN'T REVEAL THE FACTS, HE WOULD.


TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. 
"Montgomery is in poor health. He suffered a brain aneurysm and a related multi-infarct stroke on May 12, 2014. He suffered both a hemorrhagic stroke (caused by ruptured blood vessels that cause brain bleeding) and ischemic stroke (loss of blood flow).
This type of stroke has a 70-80% death rate in the first 28 days, which miraculously Montgomery survived.
He was in the hospital for two months, through July 2014. He has been left permanently disabled and partially paralyzed."

MAYBE THAT'S WHY THE FBI AND CONGRESS ARE DRAGGING THEIR FEET AND POSTPONING THE INEVITABLE...MAKING IT PUBLICLY KNOWN WHAT WAS IN THOSE FILES?
DO THEY HOPE THIS WITNESS WILL DIE BEFORE REVEALING MORE?


THESE RECENT EVENTS UNFOLDED BACK IN FEBRUARY.
MAINSTREAM MEDIA DID NOT MENTION IT AT ALL.
THAT'S BECAUSE MSM IS COMPLICIT WITH THE "DEEP STATE" THAT RUNS THIS SHOW WE CALL AMERICA.

THE FBI OBVIOUSLY LIED TO CONGRESS WHEN COMEY SAID THERE HAD BEEN NO SURVEILLANCE ON TRUMP DURING THE CAMPAIGN.

TRUMP TOWER WAS UNDER "WIDESPREAD" SURVEILLANCE, AS OTHER EX-AGENTS AND CONTRACTORS HAVE TOLD THE BBC AND ABC NEWS, BUT, SUPPOSEDLY, AND AS WE ARE BEING TOLD, THE SPYING WAS "ONLY BECAUSE OF RUSSIAN BUSINESSMEN AND RUSSIAN MAFIA MEMBERS IN 4 TO 6 UNITS INSIDE THE TOWER".

HOW BLOODY DAMNED CONVENIENT, YES?

AS YOU WILL SEE BELOW, HILLARY CLINTON'S TEAM, ESPECIALLY JOHN PODESTA, HAD BUSINESS DEALINGS WITH THOSE SAME RUSSIAN BANKS, AND EVEN NANCY PELOSI MET WITH THE SAME RUSSIANS THAT THE TRUMP TEAM IS ACCUSED OF MEETING WITH.

BOTH TEAMS ALSO MET WITH SAUDI OFFICIALS, GERMAN OFFICIALS, JAPANESE AND CHINESE OFFICIALS, MANY OFFICIALS FROM MANY NATIONS.

WHY IS MEETING WITH RUSSIANS SO DIFFERENT?
AFTER ALL, RUSSIA WAS OUR ALLY IN BOTH WORLD WARS...GERMANY AND JAPAN WERE NOT.

CHINA HAS THREATENED THE U.S. WITH MILITARY RETALIATION FOR YEARS OVER THAT SOUTH CHINA SEA FIASCO.
CHINA HAS HACKED INTO AMERICAN AGENCIES, COMPANIES, EVEN TRIED TO DISABLE OUR POWER GRID FOR YEARS NOW.
IT WAS SAUDI ARABIANS, FOR THE MOST PART, WHO ATTACKED AMERICA ON 9-11.

WHY IS RUSSIA SEEN AS WORSE THAN THOSE?


THIS WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF THE CENTURY IF ALL THOSE HARD DRIVES AND DOCUMENTS ARE PUBLICLY REVEALED AND THE LID IS BLOWN OFF THE TRUTH OF HOW CLOSELY AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE WATCHED, HOW DEEPLY THE FBI, NSA, HOMELAND SECURITY, THE OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE, ET AL, INVADE OUR PRIVACY.

It boils down to this: Larry Klayman has seen things we have not, knows more than he is disclosing, but has lit a fire under some Congressional butts and we just may see the old 'deep state" cookie crumble...at least a little, if Klayman and Montgomery live to tell the WHOLE tale.

Klayman served as a trial lawyer and prosecutor in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice during the Reagan administration and was on the trial team that succeeded in breaking up the AT&T monopoly in the communications industry.

HE KNOWS HOW THEY OPERATE.

He also knows what gets their attention.
He now has their attention and most in Congress are losing it.
After all, the Obama administration also spied on Congressmen.


One of the audio tapes made public by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow revealed that Brennan and Clapper particularly targeted and wiretapped Donald Trump a “zillion times.”
The audio tapes were released by Judge Snow in Maricopa County, Arizona in the Justice Department’s civil contempt case against Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio.
The tapes also reveal that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court (FISA), Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, 156 other judges, members of Congress, and Donald J. Trump were targeted by a computer program designed by Montgomery and named "the HAMMER". This program accessed the phone calls, emails and bank accounts of millions of ordinary Americans.

After Montgomery produced his documentation, the FBI gave him two immunity agreements: one in the area of “production” and the other regarding “testimony.”

The FBI then took possession of Montgomery’s documentation.

Attorney Klayman asserts that this information precipitated James Clapper’s resignation.

How it ALL falls into place...
Clapper had gone before Congress to testify under oath that the NSA, and other intelligence agencies including the CIA,” were NOT collecting massive amounts of telephonic and Internet metadata on hundreds of millions of innocent American citizens” according to Klayman.

Whistleblower Edward Snowden’s revelations proved otherwise.

Clapper was subsequently found to be untruthful and resigned on November 17, 2016, effective January 20, 2017, the day Donald Trump was sworn in.

Clapper has not been prosecuted for perjury.


Again, the easiest access to the audio tapes released by Judge Snow are at a "questionably reliable" website at http://theamericanreport.org/2017/03/17/whistleblower-tapes-trump-wiretapped-zillion-times-hammer-brennans-clappers-secret-computer-system/

But those tapes WERE evidence against Arapaio, they are REAL, and they are REVEALING, to say the least.

As Montgomery stated,  "I Hacked Into All Of America For Brennan & Clapper." 


MAYBE YOU ARE UNAWARE THAT WE HAVE 17 KNOWN AGENCIES MONITORING US EVERY DAY, AMERICANS?

"The U.S. Intelligence Community is a coalition of 17 agencies and organizations, including the ODNI, within the Executive Branch that work both independently and collaboratively to gather and analyze the intelligence necessary to conduct foreign relations and national security activities. Hover over each component for a brief description or for more detail visit: Members of the IC."

SEVENTEEN AGENCIES SPYING ON AMERICAN CITIZENS AND ENLISTED AND VETERAN MILITARY MEMBERS FOR NO JUST CAUSE, WITHOUT WARRANTS, AND STORING OUR MOST PRIVATE INFORMATION FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

IT COULD BE OUR NAMES BROUGHT UP IN THAT ULTRA-SECRET FISA COURT TOMORROW, LIKE DONALD TRUMP'S NAME CAME UP IN 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016.


THAT TRUMP TEAM MEMBERS HAVE BEEN "UNMASKED" BY THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY ITSELF IS AN OUTRAGE  AND SHOWS WHAT WE CAN EXPECT FROM THOSE WITH TOO MUCH INVASIVE POWER OVER THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
THE TERM "UNMASKED" MEANS THAT THE IDENTITY OF AN INDIVIDUAL WHO WAS PART OF AN 'INTELLIGENCE AGENCY'S' SURVEILLANCE WAS ILLEGALLY REVEALED.

ACCORDING TO THE WASHINGTON TIMES:
"
Trump presidential transition officials had their communications monitored and “unmasked” by the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday, offering the first major piece of evidence of possible illegal activity by Obama officials against Donald Trump as president-elect.

But at some point U.S. intelligence officials unmasked some Trump figures — a process that involves attaching their names to the private conversations.

That information was then circulated within the intelligence community, Mr. Nunes said.
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show the president-elect and his team were at least monitored and disseminated in what appears to be intelligence reporting channels,” said Mr. Nunes,

Mr. Nunes said several dozen examples of surveillance reports were brought to him after he issued an open call for any evidence of illegal behavior. He said the material he saw appeared to have been gathered during the transition, from November to January."

UNMASKED.
WE SAW THE SAME THING HAPPEN BACK DURING THE GEORGE W. BUSH REGIME.
Bush admits administration leaked agent name - CIA operative Valerie Plame | NBC News

WE ARE SIMPLY NOT SAFE FROM THOSE 'SWORN TO PROTECT'.




FROM ABC NEWS 6, NOV. 20, 2014:

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation has 115.7 million files going back to it's start in 1908.

The FBI has a section on it's website explaining how you can see if you have a file.

“For all Privacy Act and Freedom of Information Act requests, the FBI performs an automated search of the indexes for 115.7 million files contained in the FBI's Central Records System. The search covers the files at all FBI locations. For a search based on a name, the search uses variations of the name- including initials and the order of the words, as well as any additional information provided by the requester,” said an FBI spokesman.You find start the process of requesting your own file or looking at some high profile documents already made public at: http://www.fbi.gov/foia/ ."


WERE YOU EVER CONSIDERED AN ACTIVIST, A 'POLITICAL DISSENTER'?
HAVE YOU PUBLICLY SPOKEN OUT AGAINST ABORTION, IN FAVOR OF ENDING ALL U.S. FOREIGN "INTERVENTIONS" AND UNDECLARED WARS, OR ARE YOU A MILITARY VETERAN, SOMEONE WHO DOES BUSINESS OVERSEAS, TRAVELS OUT OF THE COUNTRY FREQUENTLY, SOMEONE WHO COLLECTS FIREARMS, SOMEONE WHO HAS VOICED THE OPINION THAT GOVERNMENT IS JUST TOO BIG, TOO INVASIVE IN PRIVATE LIVES?
THESE AND MANY OTHER STATEMENTS/CIRCUMSTANCES PROBABLY MEAN THE FBI HAS A FILE ON YOU.

"The Church Committee, a Senate Select Committee that investigated COINTELPRO in the 1970s, found that a combination of factors led law enforcers to become law breakers, resulting in "the unrestrained collection of domestic intelligence."
The Church Committee's exposure of the FBI's COINTELPRO abuses led to a series of reforms, including laws designed to regulate government surveillance and internal guidelines (Attorney General's Guidelines) which limited the FBI's investigative authority and spelled out the rules that govern law enforcement operations. These reasonable limits have been either abandoned or ignored since 9/11.
With the enactment of the USA Patriot Act Congress expanded the FBI's authority to make secret demands for personal information and records about not just suspected terrorists or spies but about anyone the FBI deemed merely "relevant" to an FBI investigation. Not surprisingly, a series of five audits by the Department of Justice Inspector General confirmed widespread FBI mismanagement, misuse and abuse of this unchecked authority, which is now used, more often than not, to target Americans."

SURPRISED?
YOU SHOULDN'T BE.

WELL, THE 'DISCLOSURE' BY REPUBLICAN REP. DEVIN NUNES THAT THE TRUMP TEAM WAS MONITORED DURING THE ELECTION, THAT THEY WERE "INADVERTENTLY" (PARDON ME WHILE I LAUGH) SWEPT UP IN THAT BAD OLD BOOGEY-MONSTER, "THE RUSSIANS MADE AMERICANS VOTE FOR TRUMP" FIASCO, JUST SHOWS HOW AMERICANS REALLY NEVER KNOW WHAT THE HELL OUR GOVERNMENT IS DOING, OR TO WHOM.

AS NUNES TOLD THE ACCURSED CNN:

"President-elect Trump and his team were put into intelligence reports."
"Clearly there is a lot of information in the reports that I've seen, which were dozens, that would lead me to believe that the last administration and numerous agencies had a pretty good idea of what President-elect Trump was up to and what his transition team was up to and who they were meeting with," Nunes told Tapper.

Nunes defended rushing to brief the President because the reports he read have nothing to do with Russia, but he said the investigation he is conducting into Russian interference in the election would look at how Trump's name got into the intelligence reports.

"Because what I saw has nothing to do with Russia and has nothing to do with the Russian investigations, (and) has everything to do with possible surveillance activities ... the President needs to know these intelligence reports are out there and I have a duty to tell him that," Nunes said."


NO...WE KNOW WHY NUNES WENT RUNNING TO TRUMP.
HE SAW WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN AND IS TRYING TO SAVE HIMSELF.
HE KNOWS THAT FBI DIRECTOR COMEY GAVE FALSE TESTIMONY TO HIS COMMITTEE WHEN COMEY STATED TRUMP'S TEAM/TRUMP WERE NOT UNDER SURVEILLANCE DURING THE 2016 CAMPAIGN. 

HE ALSO KNOWS THERE ARE MANY CURRENT AND MANY WOULD-BE WHISTLEBLOWERS IN ALL 'INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES' JUST WAITING TO BLOW THE LID OFF THE ILLEGAL SURVEILLANCE OF EVERYDAY AMERICAN CITIZENS.

THE LOS ANGELES TIME IS RUNNING WITH THE BALL, FOR NOW.


"The disclosure by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Tulare), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, that communications by Trump transition members were inadvertently picked up by U.S. surveillance legally collecting foreign intelligence raises questions that are likely to consume Congress and the White House for months.
Among them:
-Who in the Trump transition team was captured by the surveillance?

-Who were Trump transition members talking to?

-What were they talking about?

-What are the requirements for obtaining a FISA warrant?
The FBI asks a special federal court that conducts its proceedings in secret for such a warrant when it has reason to believe that someone in the U.S. is acting as an agent of a foreign power — in the worst-case scenario, conducting espionage against the U.S.

But its also possible to get FISA warrants to intercept routine communications by ambassadors and other foreign officials in the U.S., which seems to be how Trump’s former national security advisor, Mike Flynn, was detected on phone calls with Russia’s ambassador last year.


[HERE'S THE REALLY BIG QUESTION, AND LOOKS LIKE THE PEOPLE ON TRUMP'S TEAM WHO WERE "UNMASKED' JUST MAY HAVE LEGAL RECOURSE!]      
Aren’t the identities of U.S. persons who are picked up inadvertently by surveillance supposed to be protected under the FISA law?
Yes.

But senior intelligence officials can decide to include their names or other identifying information in classified intelligence reports if they believe that doing so is important for understanding the intelligence, or if it shows clear evidence of a potential crime.

This process, known as unmasking, could have happened with the Trump transition team. Nunes said it had.

What's the impact of all this?
At a minimum it has disrupted the House Intelligence Committee's efforts to conduct a bipartisan investigation into Russia's role in the election.

Schiff, the ranking Democrat, was furious that Nunes held a news conference and then briefed the president on Wednesday.

On Thursday, a committee aide said Nunes had apologized "for not sharing information about the documents he saw with the minority before going public" and that he "pledged to work with them on this issue."
  

HOWEVER, AS YOU WILL SEE BELOW, THE BBC REPORTED BACK IN JANUARY THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF THE 2016 FISA WARRANT FOR WIRETAPPING/SURVEILLANCE AND THAT SIX FEDERAL AGENTS WERE ALL OVER TRUMP TOWER.

IT SEEMED TO BE COMMON KNOWLEDGE, AS ABC ALSO REPORTED ON 2011 TO 2013 WIRETAPPING/SURVEILLANCE, BUT 'CROSSED THEIR HEARTS AND HOPED TO DIE' THAT TRUMP'S SURVEILLANCE ENDED IN 2013.

RIIIIIGHT, SURE, THAT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL BECAUSE IF THEY ENDED IT, THEN THEY'D HAVE TO GO BACK AND GET A WHOLE NEW FISA WARRANT AND THAT'S NOT A CAKEWALK.

WAS THE EXCUSE FOR WIRETAPPING TRUMP UNINTENTIONALLY REVEALED?
“While the order would have been requested by some part of the executive branch, Obama can’t order anything. Nor can Trump,” says former NSA lawyer April Doss.

“You can’t tap the phones of a political candidate for political purposes,” says Doss.

What you could tap them for?

"Acting as a foreign power, or as an agent of a foreign power. In other words, spying against US interests with both knowledge and intent."

BINGO! "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED"!
THEY DID ACCUSE TRUMP AND HIS TEAM OF THIS AND GOT THEIR WARRANT, ON THE THIRD TRY.

ABC NEWS ADMITS TRUMP TOWER WAS 'BUGGED' FOR OVER 2 YEARS.

"For two years ending in 2013, FBI had court-approved warrant to eavesdrop on Russian mafia in Trump Tower unit." https://t.co/YAvFrStQvtpic.twitter.com/aVLvPGWVJo— This Week (@ThisWeekABC) March 21, 2017

In court papers, the FBI described two years of intercepts of phone conversations and text message exchanges of the key figures in the gambling ring.

ABC ADMITS THERE WAS A WIRETAP ON TRUMP TOWER, 2011-2013 THEY SAY.
The FBI investigation did not implicate Trump. But Trump Tower was under close watch.


“Everything was moving in and out of there,” said former FBI official Rich Frankel, now an ABC News consultant.
The investigation focused on Trump Tower resident Vadim Trincher, who eventually pleaded guilty to racketeering charges and is due to be released from prison in July.

[NOTE: THAT'S NOT ENTIRELY TRUE, THE NEWER 'INVESTIGATION' IN 2016 FOCUSED ON TWO RUSSIAN BANKS AND THREE OF TRUMP ASSOCIATES, AS YOU WILL READ IN THE BBC ARTICLE FURTHER BELOW.]

ABC: "The ultimate target of the FBI operation was Alimzhan Tursunovich Tokhtakhounov, also known as “Taiwanchik,” suspected of bringing into the US more than $50 million in profits from illegal gambling. The money came from Russia, Ukraine and other countries, and was laundered through shell companies and banks based in Cyprus, Mike Gaeta, the lead agent in the FBI probe, told ABC in 2014.
The House and Senate intelligence committees said they had not received any evidence showing a wiretap of Trump Tower, though they did not rule out the possibility of other forms of surveillance.

So, TECHNICALLY, Trump was correct, the FBI (AND NSA?) under Obama , wiretapped the Trump Tower!

MAYBE THEY JUST 'FORGOT' THAT?
MAYBE CONGRESS FORGOT?
MAYBE THE FBI ALSO 'FORGOT' TO REMOVE THAT WIRETAP?

IN JANUARY OF THIS YEAR, 12 January 2017, THE BBC KNEW THE TOWER WAS WIRETAPPED IN 2016  AND THE CIA AND FBI WERE BOTH INVESTIGATING TRUMP DURING THE CAMPAIGN, DURING, NOT BEFORE LIKE IN 2011-2013, BUT IN 2016.
.
THE BBC ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN ON JANUARY...JUST 2 MONTHS AFTER THE ELECTION...SO TRUMP WAS UNDER SURVEILLANCE BEFORE THIS STORY BROKE.


"The CIA and the FBI has been investigating allegations that the Russians may have sent money to Mr Trump's organisation or his election campaign.

The former MI6 agent's report detailed alleged attempts by the Kremlin to offer Mr Trump lucrative "sweetheart deals" in Russia that would buy his loyalty.

Mr Trump turned these down, and indeed has done little real business in Russia.

But a joint intelligence and law enforcement task force has been looking at allegations that the Kremlin paid money to his campaign through his associates.

One Russian specialist told me that Vladimir Putin himself sometimes says there is kompromat on him - though perhaps he is joking. The specialist went on to tell me that FSB officers are prone to boasting about having tapes on public figures, and to be careful of any statements they might make.

A former CIA officer told me he had spoken by phone to a serving FSB officer who talked about the [alleged blackmail] tapes.
He concluded: "It's hokey as hell."


Mr Trump and his supporters are right to point out that these are unsubstantiated allegations.

On 15 October, 2016 (WHILE TRUMP WAS JUST A CANDIDATE) the US secret intelligence court issued a warrant to investigate two Russian banks.

On 15 October, the US secret intelligence court issued a warrant to investigate two Russian banks. This news was given to me by several sources and corroborated by someone I will identify only as a senior member of the US intelligence community. He would never volunteer anything - giving up classified information would be illegal - but he would confirm or deny what I had heard from other sources.

He confirmed the sequence of events below.


IT ACTUALLY BEGAN IN APRIL, 2016.
Last April, the CIA director was shown intelligence that worried him. It was - allegedly - a tape recording of a conversation about money from the Kremlin going into the US presidential campaign.
It was passed to the US by an intelligence agency of one of the Baltic States.
The CIA cannot act domestically against American citizens so a joint counter-intelligence taskforce was created.
The taskforce included six agencies or departments of government.
Dealing with the domestic, US, side of the inquiry, were the FBI, the Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Justice.

For the foreign and intelligence aspects of the investigation, there were another three agencies: the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the National Security Agency, responsible for electronic spying.

Lawyers from the National Security Division in the Department of Justice then drew up an application.
They took it to the secret US court that deals with intelligence, the Fisa court, named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They wanted permission to intercept the electronic records from two Russian banks.

Their first application, in June, was rejected outright by the judge.
They returned with a more narrowly drawn order in July and were rejected again.

Finally, before a new judge, the order was granted, on 15 October, three weeks before election day.

A lawyer- outside the Department of Justice but familiar with the case - told me that three of Mr Trump's associates were the subject of the inquiry. "But it's clear this is about Trump," he said.

The investigation was active going into the election.

CONGRESS WAS WELL AWARE WHAT WAS GOING ON.
During that period, the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, Harry Reid, wrote to the director of the FBI, accusing him of holding back "explosive information" about Mr Trump.


Mr Reid sent his letter after getting an intelligence briefing, along with other senior figures in Congress.
Only eight people were present: the chairs and ranking minority members of the House and Senate intelligence committees, and the leaders of the Democratic and Republican parties in Congress, the "gang of eight" as they are sometimes called.
Normally, senior staff attend "gang of eight" intelligence briefings, but not this time.
The Congressional leaders were not even allowed to take notes.

The CIA, FBI, Justice and Treasury all refused to comment when I approached them after hearing about the Fisa warrant.

During the final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a "puppet" of Russia's leader, Vladimir Putin."

[Clarification by BBC: 11 January - This article was amended to make clear that the opposition research firm which commissioned the report had first worked for an anti-Trump political action committee.]

THEY HAD BEEN TRYING TO GET THAT WARRANT SINCE JUNE OF 2016 AFTER 'SOMEONE' IN AMERICA ILLEGALLY RECEIVED 'INTELLIGENCE' FROM A FOREIGN AGENT.
OT APPEARS THAT JOHN McCAIN WAS IN ON THIS PART OF THE MESS.
THEY HAD TO SHOW EVIDENCE OF THE NEED FOR A WIRETAP, SO WE MUST ASSUME THEY'D ALREADY BEEN WIRETAPPING , WITHOUT A WARRANT.
THE NSA CAN DO THAT, DOES IT EVERY DAY.
SNOWDEN PROVED IT, WIKILEAKS PROVED IT, DENIAL OF THESE FACTS IS FUTILE.


AS ONE COMMENT ON ABC's 'DISCLOSURE' STATED,
"The FBI places listening devices four years ago, but when elections were taking place, they removed them again out of honor and respect?"


WHO BESIDES OBAMA MIGHT HAVE BEEN THAT DETERMINED TO GET THAT WARRANT?
CLINTON?
THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE?
TED CRUZ?
PAUL RYAN?
JOHN McCAIN?
LINDSEY GRAHAM?
HILLARY'S PALS IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT?

SINCE 6, SIX, FEDERAL AGENCIES WERE INVOLVED IN THIS, IS ANYONE STUPID ENOUGH TO BELIEVE OBAMA WASN'T AWARE OF IT?
THIS IS LIKE WHEN REAGAN DENIED KNOWLEDGE OF THE IRAN-CONTRA AFFAIR.
BS, BS, BS. REAGAN KNEW, BUT HE HAD "FALL GUYS", A PATSY TO TAKE THE WRAP, JUST AS NIXON DID.


“If he has evidence that he was wiretapped without a proper FISA order being sought, that would be a huge scandal, and he should produce whatever evidence he’s got,” says Sanchez. “It’s a pretty serious claim, and it’s striking he would make it without anything solid to back it up.”

WHAT IF HE CAN'T DO THAT BECAUSE OF "NATIONAL SECURITY"?
WHAT IF REVEALING HOW HE KNOWS MEANS A PAST PRESIDENT OR SECRETARY OF STATE OR CONGRESS HAS POWERS WE HAVEN'T BEEN INFORMED OF AND DON'T HAVE THE "RIGHT TO KNOW"?
IF TRUMP DISCLOSED "STATE SECRETS", HE WOULD SURELY BE TRIED FOR TREASON.


Obama spokesperson Kevin Lewis strongly denied extra-judicial surveillance of any US citizens to Politico in response to Trump’s claims.

WHAT A LIE!
HOMELAND SECURITY, THE BORDER PATROL, THE NSA, FBI ALL USE "EXTRA-JUDICIAL SURVEILLANCE" AS WE'VE SEEN IN HEADLINES BEFORE EVERY HEADLINE WAS BASHING TRUMP.


A SCATHING INDICTMENT OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND OBAMA BY A GOVERNMENT 'INSIDER':

“I think it’s important to note that the intelligence services here have yet to produce any evidence or proof whatsoever of Russian meddling in the American election.
What we have are “allegations;” what we have are “projections” and “assessments.”

Let me review for you the assessments of the Central Intelligence Agency.

They said there was no torture in American prisons during the Iraq War.
That was a lie.
They denied that there were renditions by foreign nationals by the US government during the Iraq War.
That was a lie.
They claimed that the attack on our mission in Benghazi was caused by a video that was shown one time in Turkey.
That was a lie.


Let’s be candid what (claims of Russian meddling in US elections) is about.
Hillary Clinton had promised the Pentagon and the people in the Central Intelligence Agency the expansion of the proxy war in Syria. They were wringing their hands in glee about war. War would be very good for a number of Hillary’s large contributors and for the military industrial complex.
Along comes Donald Trump.
He prefers negotiation over war. He prefers détente over war.


Donald Trump believes that if Brezhnev and Nixon can reach agreement over strategic arms limitation, then perhaps President Putin and President Trump can reach agreement and have peace in the Middle East.
That is the real issue here, that is what they resent so deeply.

I think what makes (claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election) durable is that the mainstream media in this country keeps repeating it ad nauseam despite a stunning lack of evidence. It is a national drumbeat without foundation.


This is a scandal bigger than Watergate.
This is the most outrageous breach of law and of morality in American public history.

Richard Nixon did not know about the Watergate break-in in advance, but he bore ultimate responsibility. 
[NOTE: YES, NIXON KNEW, AND REAGAN KNEW AND BUSH2 KNEW. THEY ALL HAD TO KNOW. THEY WERE THE PRESIDENT. EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS DURING THEIR TERM IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY. "THE BUCK STOPS HERE".]

If you look at the statement by (former) President Obama this weekend, he said he didn’t approve eavesdropping on candidate Trump.

Notice he didn’t say it didn’t happen, only that he didn’t approve it.

Of course, if the Justice Department did ask the FISA Court for permission to conduct surveillance on candidate Trump in June and again in October, it is unlikely they did so without the permission and knowledge of the President.

So the question becomes: What did Obama know and when did he know it?

As I said, this is a scandal far greater than Watergate, and it may take some time in which the former President and his Secretary of Defense and his CIA Director and his FBI Director are dragged before a grand jury and questioned under oath about what they knew.

If I were President Trump, I would fire the FBI Director and within hours have him in front of a grand jury to find out what he knows. This is potentially the greatest scandal in American history."


On the 'New McCarthyism' in America

"In this country, if you are not in favor of war over Syria, then you must be a traitor; you must be in the service of Russian intelligence.
It’s insulting, it’s outrageous, it’s false and suddenly the shoe is on the other foot.

I come from a long anti-communist tradition. I have been active in the Republican Party as an acolyte of Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, and to say because you are not in favor of war with Russia tomorrow you must be a traitor, this is the worst form of McCarthyism in the 40 years that I have been in American politics.

Now, with a majority of Americans getting their news from their handheld computer device and no longer from a television set, there’s a greater diversity of information available to the average voter. And therefore, if you don’t buy the crap being put out by CNN, you can go to Breitbart News, or Infowars.com, or the Daily Caller or any number of other alternative sources to get better investigative journalism and a different point of view.
So in a way I think politics in this nation has changed for the better.
There is greater polarization, but that’s fine.


From my point of view, whether it is Bush or Clinton, or Bush or Obama, both parties in this country - until the advent and rise of Donald Trump - were identical.

[I.E.,CAREER POLITICIANS, LAWYERS, OWNED BY WALL STREET AND WORLD BANKS.]


What they got us was endless war, erosion of our civil liberties, massive debt and spending, an immigration policy that left our country unsafe, our neighborhoods dangerous, and trade policies that have sucked the jobs out of America. In the meantime, we had a foreign policy that was incoherent. It appears to me, at least in the Middle East, that the goal of our foreign policy was to strengthen and embolden our enemies while undercutting our allies."


WHO MADE THE PRECEDING STATEMENTS?
WHO HAD A SET BIG ENOUGH TO MAKE SUCH AN ANALYSIS OF THIS ENTIRE WITCH HUNT?

ROGER STONE, FORMER TRUMP ADVISER.

STONE IS A HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL FIGURE, NOT EXACTLY A MAN TO TRUST, BUT HE IS ALSO A LONG-TIME WASHINGTON INSIDER, ALL THE WAY BACK TO NIXON DAYS.
WHO CAN BEST TELL US HOW TO ROB A HOUSE?
A BURGLAR, YES?
SO WHO BETTER TO TELL US ABOUT 'DIRTY TRICKS' THAN SOMEONE WHO HAS PLAYED A FEW?

HE ALSO SAID THAT TRUMP WAS WRONG TO FIRE GENERAL MIKE FLYNN, AND HE'S CORRECT.
"President Trump should not have fired General Flynn. I think he rushed to judgment and it was unfortunate.

General Flynn did not violate the law, his contacts with the Russian ambassador were perfectly proper, legal and appropriate and within the scope of his job. He was attempting to arrange a telephone conversation between President Putin and President Trump. That’s the beginning of a dialogue.

There’s no evidence that anything inappropriate was discussed…"

WARNING: THE INTERVIEWER HAS A GRATING VOICE AND SEEMS TOTALLY INEPT AT INTERVIEW. JUST MY OPINION.
RT SHOULD DO BETTER.


TRUMP "OFFICIALLY" ANNOUNCED HIS 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDACY ON
JUNE 16, 2015, BUT REMEMBER THAT HE'D ALSO RUN FOR THAT OFFICE IN 2000, WHEN HE RAN AS A REFORM PARTY CANDIDATE.
HE "THREATENED" TO RUN IN 2008 AND 2012, SO NATURALLY HE MIGHT BE UNDER FBI SURVEILLANCE ...MUCH AS MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR, WAS.

THE FBI KEPT MLK UNDER SURVEILLANCE FROM HIS FIRST SPEECH UNTIL HIS DEATH, RECORDED HIM IN THE PRIVACY OF HIS HOTEL ROOMS, TAPPED HIS HOME PHONE, OFFICE PHONE, EVERYTHING THEY COULD ...AND KING NEVER RAN FOR PRESIDENT.

THE FBI TRIED TO "BLACKMAIL" MLK WITH THE THREAT OF RELEASING SOME OF THOSE TAPES THAT SHOWED A VERY, VERY BAD SIDE OF KING.

SIMPLY BECAUSE OF TRUMP'S INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS DEALINGS, BOTH THE CIA AND FBI WOULD HAVE HAD HIM CLOSELY MONITORED.
GET REAL, AMERICA!
MANY OF YOU ARE UNDER SOME TYPE OF SURVEILLANCE RIGHT NOW!
AND YOU AREN'T AN ECCENTRIC BILLIONAIRE WITH INTERNATIONAL TIES. 

Various reports that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court granted Justice Department investigators a warrant to probe the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia surfaced in November, 2016....WHILE TRUMP WAS A CANDIDATE.

U.S. NEWS 
MARCH 7, 2017 
"I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored," William "Bill" Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday. Everyone's conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said.

Binney resigned from NSA shortly after the U.S. approach to intelligence changed following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He "became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he had helped develop -- nicknamed ThinThread -- were being used to spy on Americans," PBS reported. 

Binney seemed to go further than the assessment of former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, a George W. Bush administration official, who offered a tacit defense of Trump to ABC on Sunday.

"This is the difference between being correct and right," Mukasey said. "The president was not correct in saying President Obama ordered a tap on a server in Trump Tower. However, 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 through the FISA court."

But Binney stated in interview earlier Monday, "I think the FISA court's basically totally irrelevant."

The judges on the FISA court are "not even concerned, nor are they involved in any way with the Executive Order 12333 collection," Binney said during the radio interview. "That's all done outside of the courts. And outside of the Congress."

Binney told Fox the laws that fall under the FISA court's jurisdiction are "simply out there for show" and "trying to show that the government is following the law, and being looked at and overseen by the Senate and House intelligence committees and the courts."

"That's not the main collection program for NSA," Binney said.

Binney did say events such as publication of details of private calls between President Trump and the Australian prime minister, as well as with the Mexican president, are evidence the intelligence community is playing hardball with the White House.

"I think that's what happened here," Binney told Fox. "The evidence of the conversation of the president of the U.S., President Trump, and the [prime minister] of Australia and the president of Mexico. Releasing those conversations. Those are conversations that are picked up by the FAIRVIEW program, primarily, by NSA." 

[NOTE:In a legal case, Binney declared in an affidavit that the NSA is acting in deliberate violation of the U.S. Constitution.]

In September 2002, he, along with J. Kirk Wiebe and Edward Loomis, asked the U.S. Defense Department Inspector General (DoD IG) to investigate the NSA for allegedly wasting "millions and millions of dollars" on Trailblazer, a system intended to analyze mass collection of data carried on communications networks such as the Internet.

Binney had been one of the inventors of an alternative system, ThinThread, which was shelved when Trailblazer was chosen instead.

Binney has also been publicly critical of the NSA for spying on U.S. citizens, saying of its expanded surveillance after the September 11, 2001 attacks that "it's better than anything that the KGB, the Stasi, or the Gestapo and SS ever had" as well as noting Trailblazer's ineffectiveness and unjustified high cost compared to the far less intrusive ThinThread.

 He was furious that the NSA hadn't uncovered the 9/11 plot and stated that intercepts it had collected but not analyzed likely would have garnered timely attention with his leaner more focused system. 

After he left the NSA in 2001, Binney was one of several people investigated as part of an inquiry into a 2005 The New York Times exposé on the agency’s warrantless eavesdropping program. Binney was cleared of wrongdoing after three interviews with FBI agents beginning in March 2007, but in early July 2007, in an unannounced, armed, early morning raid, a dozen agents armed with rifles appeared at his house, one of whom entered the bathroom and pointed his gun at Binney, who was taking a shower.

The FBI confiscated a desktop computer, disks, and personal and business records.[12] The NSA revoked his security clearance, forcing him to close a business he ran with former colleagues at a loss of a reported $300,000 in annual income.

The FBI raided the homes of Wiebe and Loomis, as well as House Intelligence Committee staffer Diane Roark, the same morning. Several months later the Bureau raided the home of then still active NSA executive Thomas Andrews Drake who had also contacted DoD IG, but anonymously with confidentiality assured.

The Assistant Inspector General, John Crane, in charge of the Whistleblower Program, suspecting his superiors provided confidential information to the Justice Dept (DOJ), challenged them, was eventually forced from his position, and subsequently himself became a public whistleblower.

The punitive treatment of Binney, Drake, and the other whistleblowers also led Edward Snowden to go public with his revelations rather than report through the internal whistleblower program. In 2012, Binney and his co-plaintiffs went to federal court to retrieve the confiscated items.

During interviews in April and May 2012[15] with elaboration in July 2012 at 2600's hacker conference HOPE[5] and at DEF CON a couple weeks later, Binney repeated estimates that the NSA (particularly its Stellar Wind project) had intercepted 20 trillion communications "transactions" of Americans such as phone calls, emails, and other forms of data (but not including financial data).
This includes most of the emails of U.S. citizens. Binney claimed in an affidavit for Jewel v. NSA[18] that the agency was "purposefully violating the Constitution". Binney also notes that he found out after retiring that the NSA was pursuing collect-it-all vs. targeted surveillance even before the 9/11 attacks."

WHAT IF THERE WAS A HILLARY/OBAMA "PAYBACK" REGARDING THE WIKILEAKS AND FBI INVESTIGATION REVEALING "DIRT" ON HILLARY?
AFTER ALL, HILLARY DID PUBLICLY BLAME BOTH OBAMA AND THE FBI FOR HER LOSS.


AND REUTERS' REPORTED HER BLAMING THE FBI.

WHAT IF the Obama Justice Department DID wiretap and spy on the Trump campaign when it investigated Russian interference in the election and INTENTIONALLY leaked information to the media to undermine Trump?

MAXINE WATERS, IN A CNN INTERVIEW, APPEARED TO ADMIT OBAMA WAS BEHIND THE TRUMP TOWER WIRETAPPING AND/OR LEAKS.


A SHORT EXCERPT FROM THAT CNN INTERVIEW CAN BE SEEN AT
https://youtu.be/RvoS_CD7U64.

"PRESIDENT OBAMA DID ALL HE COULD DO TO EXPOSE TRUMP," SHE SAID.
"OBAMA DID ALL HE COULD"?

SOUNDS VERY PERSONAL, DOESN'T IT?
SOUNDS LIKE MAYBE A LOT OF CONGRESSMEN KNEW WHO WAS BEHIND THE WIRETAPS, THE "LEAKS" THAT STARTED THE WHOLE BUSINESS OF "TRUMP IS OWNED BY THE RUSSIANS". 

BOTTOM LINE...TRUMP WAS CORRECT...HE WAS UNDER SURVEILLANCE AND TRUMP TOWER WAS BUGGED AND IT WAS ALL DONE UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WHO WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING TO HELP HILLARY GET ELECTED.
AS FREQUENT READERS KNOW, I LOATHE POLITICAL PARTIES, ALL OF THEM.
I LOATHE POLITICIANS, ALL OF THEM, BUT I DID ALMOST LIKE TWO, JUST 2, IN THE PAST 40 YEARS...
REP. ALAN GRAYSON, DEMOCRAT, FLORIDA AND SEN. RON PAUL, REPUBLICAN, TEXAS.
THEY BOTH SEEMED TO TAKE HAVE A "SCORCHED EARTH" POLICY WHEN DEALING WITH THE MISERABLE ABOMINATION WE CALL THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND WITH THE WALL STREET BOYS WHO OWN THE WHORES IN CONGRESS.
BUT THOSE TWO WERE NOT SPOTLESS.
THEY BOTH HAD "DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS", JUST LIKE ALL THE REST.

I HAVE NO REASON TO DEFEND TRUMP. I PERSONALLY CAN'T STAND TO EVEN LOOK AT THE MAN.
DITTO FOR HILLARY.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT TRUMP...IT IS ABOUT TRUTH, FACTS, AND THE BLATANT ARROGANCE OF OUR FEDERAL AGENCIES WHO DAILY SPY ON ALL OF US, AS THEY PLEASE.


IT'S ABOUT "HELL, NO! YOU CANNOT TREAT AMERICANS LIKE FOREIGN SPIES WHEN IT SUITS YOU AND YOU MAY NOT WIRETAP AN AMERICAN CITIZEN EVERY TIME YOU FEEL LIKE IT!

AND, NO, BYALLTHEGODS, YOU CANNOT USE YOUR SECRECY AND YOUR 'MIGHT' TO PUT ANYBODY IN THAT OVAL OFFICE OR KEEP ANYBODY OUT, YOU SCUM-SUCKING PUTZES!"


WE ARE WATCHING YOU, CIA, FBI, NSA, ODNI, SECRET SERVICE, AND POLITICIANS!
WE WILL BUST YOU EVERY TIME YOU DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS!
WAIT AND SEE. 

WE ARE YOUR BOSSES, WE, THE PEOPLE, THE AVERAGE JOE AND JANE, AND WE WILL ALWAYS, FROM NOW ON, BE WATCHING YOU.
YOU CAN'T STOP US.
WE OUTNUMBER YOU!

WE DON'T BUY YOUR DAMNED MEDIA PROPAGANDA ANYMORE.
SHOVE IT WHERE THE SUN NEVER SHINES AND CEASE AND DESIST FROM SPYING ON AMERICANS BEFORE YOU REALLY PISS US OFF!

SOME OF US THINK IT'S WAY PAST TIME FOR A NATION-CLEANSING REVOLUTION TO RESTORE AMERICA TO GREATNESS AND WE DON'T NEED A POLITICIAN OR YOU TO HELP US DO SO.






______________________________________________
OTHER RECENT WHISTLEBLOWERS YOU MAY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF, A VERY SHORT LIST:


~ 2015 to present day, DCAA J. Kirk McGill was the Auditor-in-Charge of a 2013 audit of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) conducted on behalf of the Office of the Inspector General of the National Science Foundation (NSF). The audit concluded that NEON and the NSF had conspired to evade the prohibition against payment of certain costs to Government grantees including lobbying, parties, luxury foreign travel, and alcohol. The audit was later overruled by top DCAA management. McGill reported the improper overruling of the audit, which violated Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards, to the Office of the Inspector General, United States Department of Defense and DCAA's Internal Review Directorate (later the DCAA Inspector General). Neither watchdog took any action to address McGill's concerns, despite being notified as early as January 2014 of the problem. McGill then reported the findings and the alleged cover up to Congress. On December 11, 2015, NEON was fired from the multibillion-dollar project.
McGill's primary disclosure was published online on January 5, 2015. McGill's allegations of retaliation remain under investigation by the United States Office of Special Counsel.

~ 2014, Former State Department official John Tye released an editorial in The Washington Post in July 2014, highlighting concerns over data collection under Ronald Reagan's Executive Order 12333. While Tye's concerns are rooted in classified material he had access to through the State Department, he has not publicly released any classified materials.

~ 2014, Commander (CDR) Ben Strickland, alleged multiple acts of retaliation in violation of the Military Whistleblower Protection Act by Coast Guard Investigative Service (CGIS) and senior Coast Guard Officials after he reported a sexual assault onboard USCGC Munro in May 2013. The Coast Guard denied retaliation on their part and claimed he was not eligible for whistleblower protection. CDR Strickland alleged that he became an unlawful target of the very investigations which stemmed from his report of a sexual assault and filed a formal complaint which was accepted for investigation by the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General and pends administrative review by the Board for Correction of Military Records.

~2013, David Weber, an attorney and Certified Fraud Examiner, was the assistant inspector general of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. He learned of misconduct in the Bernard Madoff and Allen Stanford investigations, and of suspected hacking by a unit of the Chinese military.
He insisted that agency management report the misconduct and hacking to Congressional Oversight Committees, but instead was terminated for supposedly unrelated reasons. Shortly after his lawsuit became public, news stories broke that the People's Liberation Army compromised information technology at 160 U.S. corporations and government agencies.

~ 2012, Captain Joshua Wilson and Major Jeremy Gordon (USAF) exposed the malfunctioning oxygen system on board the F-22 Raptor systems that were causing pilots to become disoriented, first to superior officers and then to CBS 60 Minutes. As a result, Wilson's superiors cancelled his promotion to Major, took him off flying duty and threatened to take away his wings. Wilson was also forced out of his desk job at Air Combat Command. No such actions faced Major Gordon

~2012, Carmen Segarra discovered that Goldman Sachs did not have a conflict of interest policy when it advised El Paso Corp. on selling itself to Kinder Morgan, a company which Goldman Sachs owned a $4 billion stake. She was forced by her superiors at the Federal Reserve to falsify her report, but stated that her professional view of the situation had not changed. She was shortly thereafter fired.
The New York Federal Reserve disputes that she was fired in retaliation.

~ 2011, Blake Percival filed a Qui Tam Whistleblower claim under seal in 7/2011 alleging that USIS had defrauded the U.S. Government by submitting unfinished background investigations to the government for payment. USIS has been under scrutiny since it was revealed that they had performed the background investigation of Edward Snowden and Aaron Alexis.

~ 2008, GUANTANAMO COVER-UP: A veteran of US Army intelligence, Lt. Col. Abraham served from September 2004 to March 2005 as part of OARDEC (the Office for the Administrative Review of the Detention of Enemy Combatants), the organization responsible for conducting the Combatant Status Review Tribunals (CSRTs) at Guantánamo, as well as compiling the information used by those tribunals. The CSRTs, which began shortly after the Supreme Court ruled in June 2004, in Rasul v. Bush, that the prisoners at Guantánamo had statutory habeas corpus rights, were introduced as a deliberate attempt to subvert the Supreme Court ruling, and were widely criticized for preventing the prisoners from having legal representation and for relying on secret evidence that was withheld from the prisoners.

However, it was not until Lt. Col. Abraham filed a statement in connection with one of the Guantánamo cases that a former insider confirmed that the gathering of materials for use in the tribunals was severely flawed, consisting of intelligence “of a generalized nature — often outdated, often ‘generic,’ rarely specifically relating to the individual subjects of the CSRTs or to the circumstances related to those individuals’ status,” that “what purported to be specific statements of fact lacked even the most fundamental earmarks of objectively credible evidence,” and that the whole system was geared towards rubber-stamping the detainees’ prior designation as “enemy combatants.” In a subsequent statement, Abraham also pointed out that, because the tribunals had little or no access to the intelligence agencies, “Most of the information collected … consisted … of information obtained during interrogations of other detainees” (and may, therefore, have been made through the use of torture, coercion or bribery).

~ 2003, Retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force, Karen Kwiatkowski who worked as a desk officer in The Pentagon and in a number of roles in the National Security Agency. She has written a number of essays on corrupting political influences of military intelligence leading up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and has said that she was the anonymous source for Seymour Hersh and Warren Strobel on their exposés of pre-war intelligence.

~ 2002, Glenn Walp and Steven L. Doran were hired to investigate allegations of fraud at the University of California's Los Alamos National Laboratory. They were fired after they exposed breaches of security as well as fraud and mismanagement to the Department of Energy. Their investigation resulted in congressional hearings. Walpo received a $930,000 settlement from the University of California (UC) for wrongful termination.
Doran accepted UC's offer of a position as security consultant.

~ 2002, Former FBI translator naturalized American citizen of Turkish descent who was fired in 2002 by the FBI for attempting to report coverups of security issues, potential espionage, and incompetence. She has been gagged by the State Secrets Privilege in her efforts to go to court on these issues, including a rejection recently by the Supreme Court of the United States to hear her case without comment. She is now founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC) that is looking to lobby congress and help other whistleblowers with legal and other forms of assistance.

~ 2001, Joseph Nacchio, chairperson and CEO of Qwest when it refused to participate in NSA spying on its customers in February 2001. Qwest was the only telecommunications company to require FISA court orders. Nacchio claims that in retaliation, Qwest subsequently was denied government contracts.

~ Kathryn Bolkavac, Originally hired by the U.S. company DynCorp as part of a $15 million UN contract to hire and train police officers for duty in Bosnia. She eventually reported that such officers were paying for prostitutes and participating in sex-trafficking. Many of these were forced to resign under suspicion of illegal activity, but none have been prosecuted, as they also enjoy immunity from prosecution in Bosnia.
Bolkovac filed a lawsuit in Great Britain against DynCorp for unfair dismissal due to a protected disclosure (whistleblowing), and on August 2, 2002 the tribunal unanimously found in her favor.


~ Stefan Kruszewski is a whistleblower, with settlements from suits brought against Southwood Psychiatric Hospital, Pfizer, Inc., and AstraZeneca.
Kruszewski became aware of inadequate care and the exploiting of state-committed mentally ill children through overmedication and physical and chemical restraints while working for the Department of Public Welfare, Bureau of Program Integrity for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. When he refused to keep silent about his discoveries, he was fired from his position at the state.
Kruszewski won settlements for both a First Amendment case against the state of Pennsylvania as well as his first Qui tam lawsuit against the hospital.
In the cases against pharmaceutical giants, Pfizer and AstraZeneca, Kruszewski highlighted clinical science that was misrepresented by the defendants in their marketing and promotion of certain drugs. He also demonstrated problems with off-label marketing (marketing that promotes uses, patients or doses that are not approved by the US FDA) which resulted in heightened, but often non-transparent, risk to the health of patients and exceptional costs to taxpayers and state and federal governments.

~ Jesselyn Radack, a DEPT. OF JUSTICE lawyer, told Newsweek that the DOJ both lied about and destroyed documents regarding accused 'American Taliban' Qala-i-Jangi fortress detainee John Walker Lindh's interrogation and his parent's attempts to get him a lawyer. The DOJ retaliated by pushing her out of the Department, getting her fired from her next job, trying to get her law licence revoked, & other means.

~ Coleen Rowley, FBI employee, outlined the FBI's slow action before the September 11, 2001 attacks. Jointly named Time's People of the Year in 2002.
