  • Former CBS Reporter: Seems Like The FBI's Spy Operation Against Trump Campaign

    Over the past couple of weeks, the liberal media has clinched the gold medal in the linguistic gymnastics. As the Left goes through their 400,000th box of popcorn waiting for the smoking gun that will never come that shows the Kremlin colluding with the Trump team to tilt the election, new news arose. The FBI seems to have spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election—and yes, it looks like it was politically motivated. But you see—for some, it’s not spying; our intelligence apparatus just had a confidential informant trying to glean information based on false pretenses. The FBI...

    It’s illegal for foreign governments, citizens and corporations to donate to US politicians. But it’s legal for them to hire middlemen–US PR firms, lobbyists and law groups–to write our laws, meet with US government officials, arrange interviews with US media, places op-eds in news publications and generate positive social media. I’ve been combing through federal disclosure records disclosing which countries are paying which US companies to act as their “foreign agents,” particular when it comes to nemeses Russia and Ukraine. That’s this week’s cover story.

    It’s easy to find timelines that detail Trump-Russia collusion developments. Here are links to two of them I recommend:Politifact Russia-Trump timelineWashington Post Russia-Trump timelineOn the other side, evidence has emerged in the past year that makes it clear there were organized efforts to collude against candidate Donald Trump–and then President Trump. For example: Anti-Russian Ukrainians allegedly helped coordinate and execute a campaign against Trump in partnership with the Democratic National Committee and news reporters.A Yemen-born ex-British spy reportedly delivered political opposition research against Trump to reporters, Sen. John McCain, and the FBI; the latter of which used the material–in part–to...

    RUSH: Sharyl Attkisson says that what’s going on the FISA court is not new, that it’s actually been going on quite a while, that the FISA court has been weaponized by law enforcement, by political people, primarily the last eight years under Obama. What would happen is that they would go seek a FISA warrant and get it in order to spy on Americans and then unmask them, and that this has been not a law enforcement thing about a political thing. I read that and wasn’t surprised by that. That’s what the Democrat Party is. That’s who Barack Obama...

    Shortened title: Full title: Attkisson: Journalists "Begging" Not To Be Told About Surveillance Abuses; "Propagandists" In Newsrooms Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson said she has never seen the number of supposed open government groups and journalists "so uncurious and begging" not to be told about alleged or supposed violations of citizens rights. In an interview with Tucker Carlson on the Tuesday edition of his FOX News show, the veteran journalist said "propagandists" have been invited into newsrooms to dictate "talking points de jour," making it more difficult to do unbiased reporting. Attkisson also talked about intelligence agencies introducing "bad evidence" to...

    The biggest of all BIGGER story aspects to the HPSCI Memo, in all coverage, has been overlooked by all Main Stream Media. The Department of Justice FBI FISA request was for “Title I” surveillance authority. This is not some innocuous request for metadata exploration – the FBI said American citizen Carter Page was a “foreign agent of a hostile foreign government”; the FBI was calling Carter Page a spy. “Title I” FISA surveillance of U.S. citizens is the most intrusive, exhaustive and far reaching type of search, seizure and surveillance authority, permitting the FBI to look at every scintilla of...

    A hallmark of the Democrats – and the Clintons in particular – is that, with the aid of a complaisant press, they hide their wrongdoings with countless obfuscations and distractions so that the truth of consequential matters is buried in chaff and hard to see. This week, we can look forward to an effort to clear away the chaff and reveal the wheat. Tomorrow, we expect the Department of Justice's inspector general to release the first part of his report to congressional investigators. The report is expected to cover the alleged bias and malfeasance by the FBI, The most significant...

    Since the 2016 election, the intelligence community has been under greater scrutiny—and for good reason. The leaks emanating from this cadre of professionals in D.C. was not exposing government malfeasance from the Trump administration, but classified information that was putting America’s national security interests at stake. It seemed to have been done to hamstring a new administration. As apolitical operatives, this was not their job. If you can’t handle working under a new administration, then resign. Leaking to undercut the Trump presidency because you’re sore about Hillary Clinton losing is not an act of patriotism. Former investigative journalist for CBS...

      This is easily the read of the day.  Sharyl Attkisson is the bravest reporter of her generation, so much of a threat to people with access to the capabilities of our intel agencies that she was spied upon and worse.  Today she faces the ugly truth about what recent reports (if true) reveal: Nobody wants our intel agencies to be used like the Stasi in East Germany; the secret police spying on its own citizens for political purposes. The prospect of our own NSA, CIA and FBI becoming politically weaponized has been shrouded by untruths, accusations and justifications. She...

    The Hill ^ | Sharyl Attkisson,
    Many in the media are diving deeply into minutiae in order to discredit any notion that President Trump might have been onto something in March when he fired off a series of tweets claiming President Obama had “tapped” “wires” in Trump Tower just before the election. According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials — or Trump himself — communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too. But we’re missing the bigger story. If these...

    ....As journalists, we’re supposed to sort through press releases, talking points and propaganda, using them only to the extent they enlighten us as to what special interests want to believe: Is it true? Is it the whole story? Who wants you to think it and why? Are they trying to deflect attention from other facts or a more important story? Finding these answers is a basic part of our job. Instead, we’re willing repositories for all kinds of narratives. We report — as if news — press releases from the government, corporations, special interests or nonprofits (that are often undisclosed...

    Though it often seems random and nonsensical, the world of negative politics and conniving news media is actually a strategic and calculating place. A new book explains much. On sale now, from investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson: “The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote,” from Harper Collins Publishers. Americans are pretty suspicious already. “They’re convinced that the truth is being hidden from them on a massive scale. That someone is manipulating what they see on the news and online.

Attkisson's new book The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote focuses on reporters and news outlets "suspending the normal rules of journalism" that circulate news to make you think this is what everyone else is thinking.

    ....After eight-and-a-half years on an upward trajectory in Washington, D.C., Chaffetz of Utah has suddenly and quite unexpectedly pulled himself out of the game. Attkisson: "Some people might think this is a great time to be a Republican chairman of an important committee because Republicans control the House, they're the majority in the Senate, and they hold the president's office. That means, you would think, that federal agencies can't stonewall investigations of spending, waste, fraud and abuse." Chaffetz: "The reality is, sadly, I don't see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration. I thought there would be...
