The responsibility for the courts and legal system has always been to protect the wealth of the rich in society.

Poor people can't pay for lawyers.   Middle class cannot afford them either.

So the system is biased in favor of people with lawyers, and that means people with money.

It's just one of those facts of life.    Poor people always get a bad deal.

And suppose one has "friends"

 

Then, although the criminal crooked lawyers and judges try to control others via injustices, they  can also expect the rest of their lives to be in a war.

 

That's no fun either.

 

In our NC case the other parties are caught with more than one smoking gun, violating NC Criminal Stats and Fed Criminal Code Titles etc.

 

All the judges say is do it again - wrong font - etc. (funny it was the defendants that used to smaller font size not the Mrs.) while the clintons and greenbergs AND their attorneys are facing thousands of documents that have now incriminated them all.

 

AND Mrs. Shakiman (past CPA) has also caught them cooking the books and money laundering.

 

Still no press.

 

It's so hot now here in the federal courthous in NC there may be a nuclear meltdown in all the US courts.

 

Regards.

A press kit is the usual way to inform the local newspaper or radio news department about litigation, and if locals pick it up, the national media may also pick it up, except for one thing - the Clintons.    The media won't print anything factual about them, period.

 

Put it into a video on youtube.com maybe?     There are some alternatives, like your own website for releasing stories, but that is more time than most people can spare.   Some conservative websites might be interested in your story if you can package it in a brief, simple story of how it happened.    Getting wanted publicity is often far more difficult than getting unwanted publicity.

The last two posts interest me - Atty. Gen. Lynch authorizes illegal wiretaps, and guess what happens next?    Trump guys get wiretapped.   Who could have known?   

 

The "Shadow Government" knows.    

Lynch didn't do that to benefit the American public.

 

Wiretapping every American citizen does not benefit anyone except the Shadow Government, the Skull & Bones groupies, the fake James Bond wannabees.   It's a control mechanism for future police state controls.    Today, they only get a select few into trouble, but someday, everyone will feel the pressure to conform or be arrested.    Flynn was unlucky enough to suffer their wrath, but even he should have known.   He is a military man.   He was part of their system.     He was a general class officer.    You don't get there by being ignorant, stupid, or slow.   You get that rank by being fully aware of what is happening around you.   And what was happening around the time he was in the military was the "Total Awareness" doctrine.    That never disappeared and now they've almost got it.

 

And Flynn found out the hard way - and why it is dangerous to have gone along with that program.

 

And eventually, NSA employees will discover that what goes around, comes around to them also.

 

Obama Expanded NSA Powers Days Before Leaving Office, Now They’re Being Used to Sabotage Trump

  • printer_famfamfam.gif youtube.png podcast.png pptv.png twitter.png facebook.png cart.png

The story is being looked at in a completely new light

Chris Menahan
Information Liberation
February 16, 2017

After President Trump won the election, Obama quietly expanded the NSA’s ability to spy on innocent Americans just days before leaving office.

Seeing as how the deep state, which includes the NSA and FBI, appear to be leaking all of Trump’s private phone calls with foreign leaders and took down General Michael Flynn by spying on his calls and leaking them to their friends in The Washington Post and The New York Times, the story is being looked at in a completely new light.

As the The New York Times reported on January 12th:

In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.

The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

trump-fbi-nsa-leakers.jpg

Trump questioned whether the NSA and FBI were behind a multitude of leaks handed to the New York Times and Washington Post.

The change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch signed the new rules, permitting the N.S.A. to disseminate “raw signals intelligence information,” on Jan. 3, after the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., signed them on Dec. 15, according to a 23-page, largely declassified copy of the procedures.

These are Obama loyalists who reports suggest may have worked to sabotage Trump by ousting Flynn in order to preserve Obama’s Iran deal.

Previously, the N.S.A. filtered information before sharing intercepted communications with another agency, like the C.I.A. or the intelligence branches of the F.B.I. and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The N.S.A.’s analysts passed on only information they deemed pertinent, screening out the identities of innocent people and irrelevant personal information.

Now, other intelligence agencies will be able to search directly through raw repositories of communications intercepted by the N.S.A. and then apply such rules for “minimizing” privacy intrusions.

“This is not expanding the substantive ability of law enforcement to get access to signals intelligence,” said Robert S. Litt, the general counsel to Mr. Clapper. “It is simply widening the aperture for a larger number of analysts, who will be bound by the existing rules.”

But Patrick Toomey, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, called the move an erosion of rules intended to protect the privacy of Americans when their messages are caught by the N.S.A.’s powerful global collection methods. He noted that domestic internet data was often routed or stored abroad, where it may get vacuumed up without court oversight.

“Rather than dramatically expanding government access to so much personal data, we need much stronger rules to protect the privacy of Americans,” Mr. Toomey said. “Seventeen different government agencies shouldn’t be rooting through Americans’ emails with family members, friends and colleagues, all without ever obtaining a warrant.”

Is this what happened to Flynn?

30020745053_a7df97d691_b.jpg

Is this why Trump’s calls with foreign leaders are being illegally leaked to the press in order to sabotage his presidency?

28759986023_04050c8633_b.jpg

It sure as hell looks like that’s the case.

Remember, the point at which Donald Trump broke away from the pack and secured his victory during the primaries was when the Colorado GOP decided to deny Americans their right to vote and handed Ted Cruz all the state’s delegates, then tweeted: “We did it. #NeverTrump.”

colorado-gop-tweet_1460316871924_3591223

A very similar story is now happening with the deep state’s open sabotage. Even though Americans came out in droves to elect a populist leader promising massive change, the deep state is sabotaging his presidency to prevent him from implementing the agenda his supporters voted for.

1487117745674.png

The Colorado GOP’s act of sabotage backfired spectacularly and was the turning point which secured Trump and his supporters their victory, if this deep state sabotage is exposed just the same, this too could be the turning point which sinks the establishment and secures our populist revolution.

So why does anyone care what the NSA is doing to Trump?

 

Trump got elected for a reason - to drain the swamp, and NSA has made itself the stinky side of the swamp.

 

NSA is so anti-American that it reeks of Stazi methods, and as an agency of the federal government, it is ripe to be misused by the next dictator our democrat subversives manage to put into office.    Police state surveillance is a European thing.   

They seem to like it, Americans do not.

 

NSA is a loaded gun waiting to be aimed at American heads.   

It just happens to be aimed at our head of state this time.

Next time it may be us.

 

We don't need that kind of danger in America.

 

This isn't East Berlin.

 

If YOU work for the NSA, you work for Trump.   You work for America.   You work to protect the 4th Amendment.

 

If you don't know about the 4th Amendment, you shouldn't be working at the NSA.

 

If you hate the 4th Amendment, you shouldn't even be working in America.

Here's a suggestion for NSA:

 

You know what happens when intel is captured by the enemy.    They use it.

 

So what precautions has NSA in place to destroy their entire database in the event of a national emergency, such as if Hillary Clinton is elected president?    How about if another Adolph Hitler is elected US president?    Can you destroy your server farm in Utah in time to prevent it from falling into enemy hands?    Is it rigged with explosives?    Who is authorized to eliminate the entire database on the American people?

 

Can you wipe out the entire massive cache of records before they are captured?

 

Think about that if you have children or grandchildren in America.

My sentiments exactly and 100% so.

 

The 4th Amendment has been used by law enforcement especially the FBI for toilet paper for years.

 

It is a major reason I give them hell as they have often done to me and then tried to persuade me that they are violating the law for a common good.

 

i say it's bullcrap.

 

If they were really intelligent they wouldn't need to cheat so much and they could use that to prosecute as well.

 

Best regards.

Emergency hearing sought to stop NSA 'spying' on Trump
'Our own government has committed biggest violation of constitutional rights in history'

Attorney Larry Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch, is asking a federal court to hold an emergency hearing on the National Security Agency, alleging “likely” CIA “spying” on President Donald Trump.

In an emergency supplement filed Wednesday with the U.S. District Court in Washington, he said the NSA and “likely the Central Intelligence Agency are continuing to violate the [Fourth] Amendment to the Constitution and related statutes.”

Klayman charged the agencies spied on President Trump, the White House, his former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn and others in his administration.

He is requesting an emergency status conference to determine how to proceed.

See Klayman’s explanation:

Klayman’s newest filing was an addition to his argument to the court that his original cases should not be dismissed, as the government wants.

“Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare Is Becoming Our Reality” chronicles how America has arrived at the point of being a de facto police state and what led to an out-of-control government that increasingly ignores the Constitution. Order today!

His issue was the government’s program to obtain and keep metadata from all cell phone calls in the country. He brought the first case several years ago.

“Flynn defiant: Intelligence leaks ‘a criminal act'”

“While the media is focused on the so-called Russian election hacking ‘scandal,’ it ignores the fact that our own government has committed the biggest violation of constitutional rights in American history, leaving the intelligence agencies free to continue their pattern and practice of violating the law in its intelligence gathering operations,” Klayman argued against a dismissal.

“As plaintiff Klayman argued in this court on Nov. 18, 2013, ‘We have never seen in the history of this country this kind of violation of the privacy rights of the American citizens. We live in an Orwellian state.'”

His argument continued, “This court concurred, finding ‘the almost-Orwellian technology that enables the government to store and analyze the phone metadata of every telephone user in the United States is unlike anything that could have been conceived in 1979.”

The arguments this week came shortly after Flynn resigned as national security adviser over his conversations about sanctions with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. Then, on Wednesday, followed reports of the leaking of information in the Trump administration.

Klayman argued that the district court, which already is well into an advanced position regarding charges of government spying, should take up the issue. He pointed out that judges are allowed access to classified information behind closed doors and that the “continuing unlawful conduct of the government defendants … is highly destructive of our republic.”

Klayman charged in a filing before the election: “The intelligence agencies’ conscious disregard for the law has been ongoing for decades, and there is no reason to believe that, all of a sudden, they will begin to respect the constitutional right of plaintiffs, and all

 

Americans. Indeed, even today, [then-]President-elect Donald Trump credibly accused outgoing CIA chief, John Brennan, who worked with James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, of leaking false news reports and classified information to the media in an attempt to undermine him.”

Trump’s statement at that time was: “‘Outgoing CIA chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand.’ Oh really, couldn’t do … much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the buildup of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?”

WND reported on Klayman’s case one year ago, when U.S. District Judge Richard Leon, who previously said the NSA’s spy-on-Americans cell phone monitoring program likely is unconstitutional, held a status hearing.

The judge had noted the cases were at the “pinnacle of national importance.”

Klayman, at that time, said: “Mass surveillance of the citizenry cannot be permitted when it is likely based on reasons that go far beyond catching terrorists. Indeed, as Judge Leon found on two occasions in issuing his prior preliminary injunctions, Obama and his agents at the spy agencies have not been able to cite one instance when the unconstitutional mass surveillance caught even one terrorist.”

In Klayman’s case, Leon ruled Dec. 16, 2013, and again Nov. 9, 2015, that the NSA program likely was unconstitutional, barring the government agency and Obama from “conducting mass telephonic metadata surveillance over the plaintiffs.”

The cases involve not only telephonic metadata mass surveillance, Klayman said, but mass surveillance of all Americans’ Internet and social media activity.

Klayman, at the beginning of the case, originally sued the NSA, Barack Obama, then-Attorney General Eric Holder and a number of other federal officials. Other defendants include NSA chief Keith Alexander, U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Judge Roger Vinson, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA chief John Brennan, FBI chief James Comey, the Department of Justice, the CIA and the FBI.

Plaintiffs in the case include Klayman, Charles and Mary Ann Strange, Michael Ferrari, Matt Garrison and J.J. Little.

Two of America’s influential civil-rights groups, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, have sided with Klayman.

The data that the NSA collects, they explained in a brief, “reveals political affiliation, religious practices and peoples’ most intimate associations.”

“It reveals who calls a suicide prevention line and who calls their elected official; who calls the local tea-party office and who calls Planned Parenthood.”

The groups’ brief said “the relevant fact for whether an expectation of privacy exists is that the comprehensive telephone records the government collects – not just the records of a few calls over a few days but all of a person’s calls over many years – reveals highly personal information about the person and her life.”

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

As I view the issue, if the government feels the need to keep those wiretap records secret, it is PRECISELY BECAUSE there was "an expectation of privacy" of the wiretap victim.   

 

The government cannot argue that there was no victim belief in privacy if the government itself keeps it secret.     The 4th Amendment provides an "expectation of privacy" which the NSA violated.    The classification of "Confidential" or "Secret" for those wiretaps is an admission of a privacy expectation.    A security classification of wiretap content amounts to a confession of a 4th Amendment violation.   

 

They don't want the wiretap victim to know that his personal privacy has been invaded for the very reason that the victim expected his telephone conversations to be private, and there would be outrage if revealed.    So the NSA is obviously violating the law.

 

The big question is why won't the courts do something about it when complaints are filed?

 

Nothing - no rule, no executive order, no legislation, no treaty, can alter or amend the 4th Amendment.   The US Constitution has to be Amended by lawful process, a vote of the states, to change the 4th Amendment.     The Justice Department can't do that by itself.

Neither can a president.    So NSA is currently committing federal felonies.   It is time to prosecute.

Is the NSA the real president of the United States?

Source: Jon Rappoport

The US intelligence community continues its war to kick Donald Trump to the curb and destroy his presidency.

Obviously, the NSA, the CIA, and their silent partners want to continue to run this country.

So they spy and leak, spy and leak.  

We’ll get to the guts of the problem in a minute, but first a word from Bill Binney.

Breitbart: “William Binney, a former highly placed NSA official turned whistleblower, contended in an exclusive interview today that the National Security Agency (NSA) is ‘absolutely’ monitoring the phone calls of President Donald Trump.”

“Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001 after spending more than 30 years with the agency.”

“Asked whether he believes the NSA is tapping Trump, Binney replied: ‘Absolutely. How did they get the phone call between the president and the president of Australia? Or the one that he made with Mexico? Those are not targeted foreigners’.”

“Binney further contended the NSA may have been behind a data leak that might have revealed that Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, allegedly misled Vice President Mike Pence and other Trump administration officials about the contents of his phone calls with Russia’s ambassador to Washington.”

“Regarding Flynn’s case, Binney stated of the NSA”:

“’If they weren’t behind it, they certainly had the data. Now the difference here is that FBI and CIA have direct access inside the NSA databases. So, they may be able to go directly in there and see that material there. And NSA doesn’t monitor that. They don’t even monitor their own people going into databases’.”

“So, they don’t monitor what CIA and FBI do. And there’s no oversight or attempted oversight by any of the committees or even the FISA court. So, any way you look at it, ultimately the NSA is responsible because they are doing the collection on everybody inside the United States. Phone calls. Emails. All of that stuff’.”

“Utilizing data provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden, the Guardian and Washington Post in June 2013 released a series of articles reporting that the NSA was collecting the telephone records of millions of Americans.”

“…’they [the NSA, Binney said]] are given too much money anyway. When they are given too much money, they get to do wild and crazy things. And this is wild and crazy. Violations of the Constitution’s 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments’.”

—end of Breitbart clip—

—Nearly two years ago, on April 19, 2014, I wrote: “Taking the overall [NSA] scheme to another level, consider this: those same [NSA] heavy hitters who have unfettered access to financial information can also choose, at opportune moments, to expose certain scandals [e.g., Michael Flynn] and crimes. In this way, they can, at their whim, cripple governments [e.g., the Trump administration]…”

Now we come to the guts of the problem. Here is my complete article from April 10, 2014:

The Surveillance State has created an apparatus whose implications are staggering. It’s a different world now. And sometimes it takes a writer of fiction to flesh out the larger landscape.

Brad Thor’s novel, Black List, posits the existence of a monster corporation, ATS, that stands alongside the NSA in collecting information on every move we make. ATS’ intelligence-gathering capability is unmatched anywhere in the world.

On pages 117-118 of Black List, Thor makes a stunning inference that, on reflection, is as obvious as the fingers on your hand:

“For years ATS had been using its technological superiority to conduct massive insider trading. Since the early 1980s, the company had spied on anyone and everyone in the financial world. They listened in on phone calls, intercepted faxes, and evolved right along with the technology, hacking internal computer networks and e-mail accounts. They created mountains of ‘black dollars’ for themselves, which they washed through various programs they were running under secret contract, far from the prying eyes of financial regulators.”

“Those black dollars were invested into hard assets around the world, as well as in the stock market, through sham, offshore corporations. They also funneled the money into reams of promising R&D projects, which eventually would be turned around and sold to the Pentagon or the CIA.”

“In short, ATS had created its own license to print money and had assured itself a place beyond examination or reproach.”

In real life, whether the prime criminal source is one monster- corporation or a consortium of companies, or elite banks, or the NSA itself, the outcome would be the same.

It would be as Thor describes it.

We think about total surveillance as being directed at private citizens, but the capability has unlimited payoffs when it targets financial markets and the people who have intimate knowledge of them.

“Total security awareness” programs of surveillance are ideal spying ops in the financial arena, designed to suck up millions of bits of inside information, then utilizing them to make investments and suck up billions (trillions?) of dollars.

It gives new meaning to “the rich get richer.”


Taking the overall scheme to another level, consider this: those same heavy hitters who have unfettered access to financial information can also choose, at opportune moments, to expose certain scandals and crimes (not their own, of course).

In this way, they can, at their whim, cripple governments, banks, and corporations. They can cripple investment houses, insurance companies, and hedge funds. Or, alternatively, they can merely blackmail these organizations.

We think we know how scandals are exposed by the press, but actually we don’t. Tips are given to people who give them to other people. Usually, the first clue that starts the ball rolling comes from a source who remains in the shadows.

What we are talking about here is the creation and managing of realities on all sides, including the choice of when and where and how to provide a glimpse of a crime or scandal.

It’s likely that the probe Ron Paul had been pushing—audit the Federal Reserve—has already been done by those who control unlimited global surveillance [NSA]. They already know far more than any Congressional investigation will uncover. If they know the deepest truths, they can use them to blackmail, manipulate, and control the Fed itself.

The information matrix can be tapped into and plumbed, and it can also be used to dispense choice clusters of data that end up constituting the media reality of painted pictures which, every day, tell billions of people “what’s news.”

In this global-surveillance world, we need to ask new questions and think along different lines now.

For example, how long before the mortgage-derivative crisis hit did the Masters of Surveillance know, from spying on bank records, that insupportable debt was accumulating at a lethal pace? What did they do with that information?

When did they know that at least a trillion dollars was missing from Pentagon accounting books (as Donald Rumsfeld eventually publicly admitted on September 10, 2001), and what did they do with that information?

Did they discover where billions of dollars, in cash, shipped to post-war Iraq, disappeared to?

When did they know the details of the Libor rate-fixing scandal? Press reports indicate that Barclays was trying to rig interest rates as early as January 2005.


Have they tracked, in detail, the men responsible for recruiting hired mercenaries and terrorists, who eventually wound up in Syria pretending to be an authentic rebel force?

Have they discovered the truth about how close or how far away Iran is from producing a nuclear weapon?

Have they collected detailed accounts of the most private plans of Bilderberg, CFR, and Trilateral Commission leaders?

For global surveillance kings, what we think of as the future is, in many respects the present and the past.

It’s a new world.

 

These overseers of universal information-detection can enter and probe the most secret caches of data, collect, collate, cross reference, and assemble them into vital bottom-lines. By comparison, an operation like WikiLeaks is an old Model-T Ford puttering down a country road.

Previously, we thought we needed to look over the shoulders of the men who were committing major crimes out of public view. But now, if we want to be up to date, we also have to factor in the men who are spying on those criminals, who are gathering up those secrets and using them to commit their own brand of meta-crime.

And in the financial arena, that means we think of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan as perpetrators, yes, but we also think about the men who already know everything about GS and Morgan, and are using this knowledge to steal sums that might make GS and Morgan blush with envy.

—end of 2014 article—

This is what we are dealing with. This is the way, for example, governments and administrations can be brought down.

It all depends on whom the NSA wants to support and whom it wants to get rid of.

The NSA is not only the swamp that needs to be drained, it is the agency looking at and probing the swamp and extracting crucial information for itself and its close friends.

To accumulate more power.

To forward its agenda of…security? Yes, if by security we mean endless conquest and Empire and control.

Ah, there they are. The NSA, the obsessed technocrats who believe they are masters of all they survey. And spy on.

Thanks for all the info Zharkov

Lots to sift through which is parr for
course

One day we might discuss the idea of "too much intelligence" getting in the way of discernment

President Donald Trump is "absolutely right" to claim he was wiretapped and monitored, a former NSA official claimed Monday, adding that the administration risks falling victim to further leaks if it continues to run afoul of the intelligence community.

"I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored," 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.

On Monday he came to the defense of the president, whose allegations on social media over the weekend that outgoing President Barack Obama tapped his phones during the 2016 campaign have rankled Washington.

"How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!" Trump tweeted.

"Is it legal for a sitting President to be 'wire tapping' a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!... I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!," he continued.

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 told Sean Hannity's radio show 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.

What Binney did not delve into, however, was if President Obama directed surveillance on Trump for political purposes during the campaign, a core accusation of Trump's. But 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."

"Every communication that the NSA can get its hands on, which is every communication that any American engages in, is on file at the NSA headquarters," Horowitz said Wednesday to Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live."

"The question is can you open the communication and read it. That's what spying would be. The law says you have to get a FISA judge to okay it. In fact, Obama did go to a FISA judge and was rejected on one occasion and got through on another.

"But the real question is since Obama is the commander in chief, he has access to all these communications. Does anybody in his right mind think that Obama would let the law get in the way of … the war he has declared on Trump? Obama has no respect for the law as we know from many cases."

Horowitz cited the IRS scandal in which the agency was charged with targeting tea party groups seeking tax-exempt status — which he said Obama insisted showed "not a smidgen of corruption."

He also said Obama covered up "foreign corruption" and granted amnesty after he said he couldn't.

"So of course Obama looked into the Trump Tower, but the fact is it was surveilled … nobody can prove that Obama did it or didn't do it because he's protected," Horowitz said.

This is worse than "Dirty Work", this is absolutely putrid, filthy, disgusting work...

NSA Documents Prove Surveillance of Donald Trump & His Family
Bombshell discovery shows targets of NSA's "Project Dragnet"

And NSA officials allowed Trump to swing in the wind while network news media crucified him as a liar.

That really sucks.

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Infowars.com have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

 

LIVE COVERAGE OF NSA SPYING ON TRUMP

Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to Infowars.com.

 

The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.

 

Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have identified dozens of entries at various addresses, including both Trump Tower in New York City and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, under which Donald Trump was apparently under NSA electronic surveillance from 2004, during President George W. Bush’s term of office, through 2009, the first year of President Obama’s presidency.

While attempts have been made to deny such domestic surveillance, reports from the New York Times in 2014 showed the Central Intelligence Agency had done just that by spying on a senate panel investigating the agency’s use of “enhanced interrogation.”

In a 2016 article from The Guardian entitled, “‘A constitutional crisis’: the CIA turns on the Senate,” it is likewise noted just how drastic and widespread the CIA’s domestic surveillance operation was.

As revealed from the Dragnet database, not only was Trump himself surveilled but so were numerous employees of his located at Trump Tower.

The lawsuits and prosecutions are coming, slowly, toward NSA.

The guys who will walk away free will be the whistleblowers who cooperate with investigators.

Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News.

Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.

The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.

The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.

The FBI hasn’t been responsive to the House Intelligence Committee’s request for documents, but the National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the committee by Friday. The NSA document production is expected to produce more intelligence than Nunes has so far seen or described – including what one source described as a potential “smoking gun” establishing the spying.

Some time will be needed to properly assess the materials, with the likely result being that congressional investigators and attorneys won’t have a solid handle on the contents of the documents – and their implications – until next week.

Because Nunes’s intelligence came from multiple sources during a span of several weeks, and he has not shared the actual materials with his committee colleagues, he will be the only member of the panel in a position to know whether the NSA has turned over some or all of the intelligence he is citing. However, Fox News was told Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., had been briefed on the basic contents of the intelligence described by Nunes.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo is also sympathetic to the effort to determine, with documentary evidence, the extent of any alleged Obama administration spying on the Trump team, sources said.

At a dramatic Wednesday news conference, Nunes claimed to have seen evidence that members of the Trump transition team, possibly including the president-elect, were subjected to “incidental surveillance” collection that Nunes characterized as legal but troubling.

“What I've read bothers me,” he told reporters, “and I think it should bother the president himself, and his team because I think some of it seems to be inappropriate.”

So what's the difference between what she did and what the NSA does?

 

Brooklyn Prosecutor Charged with Faking Judges' Signatures for Illegal Wiretaps

A supervising prosecutor from the Brooklyn district attorney's office forged judges' signatures in order to obtain illegal wiretaps and then used those wiretaps to illegally monitor cell phone calls and text messages, federal prosecutors alleged in an indictment Monday.

Tara Lenich, 41, who was an assistant district attorney with the Kings County District Attorney's Office, allegedly created those fake judicial orders for more than a year -- from June 2015 to November 2016 -- in order to get the wiretaps.

She then, prosecutors allege, used equipment from the DA's office to "intercept, monitor and record the communications to and from the two cellular telephones."

Lenich will be arraigned Monday. Her attorney was not immediately available for comment.

She was initially arrested last November and fired from the DA's office once the allegations came to light. Federal prosecutors subsequently took over the case, which was widely described as having to do with a romantic entanglement.

This story should underline my point that NSA is violating the law by wiretapping and stealing data from telephone systems in America and around the world and storing it, using it for extortion and blackmail, and violating FCC regulations on capturing and divulging personal communications.    It's illegal.   Some people need to go to prison for what NSA has been doing in America.

Do we need a map to tell us?   

NSA grabs it all.  

You KNOW they are listening.

Every employee NSA fired had said so.

What is the difference between NSA secretly recording conversations and what these guys did?

 

Felony charges for 2 who secretly filmed Planned Parenthood

By ANDREW DALTON
Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent.

State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a longtime Congressional Democrat who took over the investigation in January, said in a statement that the state "will not tolerate the criminal recording of conversations."

Prosecutors say Daleiden, of Davis, California, and Merritt, of San Jose, filmed 14 people without permission between October 2013 and July 2015 in Los Angeles, San Francisco and El Dorado counties. One felony count was filed for each person. The 15th was for criminal conspiracy to invade privacy.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

 

If California law has been violated by these secret recordings, then it has been violated by the NSA.

 

So that state has already "tolerated the criminal recording of conversations."

 

Will the California AG file charges against NSA officials for doing the same crimes?
