    A long list of individuals and organizations subjected to surveillance by the Obama Administration was cited by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice as "proof I did nothing wrong." The list included Former U.S. Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif), Pro-Israel lobbyists, FBI contractor and whistleblower Shamai Leibowitz, Tea-party groups, WikiLeaks, New York Times reporter James Risen, NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake, Fox News reporter James Rosen, CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), Fox News reporter Mike Levine, ATF Special Agent John Dodson, former CIA Director Gen.

    DC Memo ^ | 4/18/2017 | Bill Hurley
    After leaving the presidency, Barack Obama has been spotted using his favorite iPad to take photos of his wife while on a David Geffen-owned megayacht in Tahiti. But this may be no ordinary iPad. A government watchdog speculates that he may have taken the Top Secret version out of the Oval Office, a big no-no.
  • CIA, FBI Admit it Wasn’t the Russians Who Leaked Docs to Wikileaks, Launch Manhunt For ‘Insider’

    The CIA and FBI have pivoted from their Russian narrative as they admit that perhaps a traitor on the inside leaked docs to Wikileaks rather than the ‘Russians hacked and leaked’. Pompeo recently stated: “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”

    Law Newz ^ | April 18, 2017 | Rachel Stockman
    The FBI case into former Donald Trump campaign advisor Carter Page just took another legal twist. CNN is reporting that the FBI used that infamous Trump dossier as part of “the justification” to convince a FISA court to issue a warrant allowing them to secretly monitor Page. The investigation is reportedly probing possible ties between the one-time Trump advisor and Russia. But, what is particularly interesting from a legal stand point is Page’s reaction to this latest development. Apparently, he’s now planning on taking the Obama officials to court. He said in a statement: “I look forward to the Privacy...

    This list includes Dennis Kucinich and investigative journalists. In 2011, Dennis Kucinich was still a Democratic congressman from Ohio. But he was not walking in lockstep with President Obama — at least not on Libya. True to his anti-war leanings, Kucinich was a staunch opponent of Obama’s unauthorized war against the Qaddafi regime.

  • “This Goes Far Beyond Incidental Surveillance. This Was Spying on Political Enemies.”

    IWB ^ | Pamela Williams
    War has been declared on “Deep State’s” political agenda, which goes way beyond incidental surveillance, as they called it. It was not “incidentally surveilled!” It was out and out spying on President Trump and his Transition Team in November, December 2016, and finally in January 2017. They were spied on, because they were political enemies of Hillary Clinton and the Deep State, which is aligned to Clinton. Susan Rice ordered spread sheets of Trump and Associates! The powerful public interest legal firm, American Center for Law and Justice has declared war on the “deep state,” which is considered to be...

    breitbart ^ | DR. SUSAN BERRY
    A new report finds that, under the guise of “personalized learning,” school-issued computer devices — now distributed to one-third of K-12 students in schools across the United States — are serving to collect and store an unprecedented amount of personal data on children without their parents’ notice or consent. A newly released investigation by Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) reveals student use of technology in school has grown at a profound rate, especially with free or low-fee devices issued by schools.
  • Why Were Foreign Intelligence Agencies Spying on Trump?

    American Thinker ^ | April 18, 2017 | Brian C. Joondeph
    Last month, Fox News regular Judge Andrew Napolitano claimed that President Obama and his cronies used British intelligence to spy on then candidate Donald Trump. That certainly caused a stir among the higher-ups at Fox News. A week later the outspoken judge was suspended from Fox. More specifically, Judge Napolitano accused the Obama administration of doing an end run around the U.S. intelligence community, using GCHQ, the British spy agency, to do its dirty work. GCHQ has unfettered access to the NSA database. Meaning that the Brits could request transcripts of conversations between the Trump campaign and any foreign players, then...
  • British Role Confirmed in Trump Spying Scandal

    AIM ^ | April 17, 2017
    The British Guardian posted a report on April 13 claiming that its sources now admit that the British spy agency GCHQ was digitally wiretapping Trump associates, going back to late 2015. This was presumably when the December 2015 Moscow meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Lt. General Michael Flynn took place. This runs contrary to the blanket nature of the denial insinuated in GCHQ’s carefully-crafted statement of March 17 claiming it was all “nonsense” and “utterly ridiculous” that they conducted surveillance of “then president-elect” Donald Trump (emphasis added). The surveillance went back a year before he became “president-elect.”
  • Susan Rice Did Nothing Wrong, Say Both Dems and Republicans (VERY FAKE NEWS)

    "I saw no evidence of any wrongdoing," said one U.S. official who reviewed the documents, who would not agree to be identified further. "It was all completely normal." His assessment was shared by a senior Republican aide who had been briefed on the matter but declined to speak on the record.

    You can find many timelines that follow allegations of Russia tampering in the U.S. election and alleged involvement of Trump officials. But I couldn’t find any comprehensive timelines cross-referencing Obama-era surveillance of whistleblowers, journalists and other U.S. citizens with Russia surveillance allegations. So I built one. Please note: temporal proximity of events doesn’t necessarily imply a connection. January 21, 2009: President Obama takes office; pledges unprecedented transparency.

    It turns out both Donald Trump and Judge Napolitano were correct, GCHQ – as well as others – were spying on the Trump team, as outlined in The Guardian. But before discussing that let’s reflect for a moment on the fact that despite having to run against the Democrats, half the Republicans and the Media, Trump also had to run against the FBI, NSA, GCHQ,  Germany, Estonia, Poland, Australia, and possibly the Dutch and the French spy agencies. He was certainly right about being “wiretapped” - not only was he being spied on, he was being spied on BIGLY!As John...

    Microsoft tries to thread the needle of transparency by telling its consuming audience as much about governmental collection of data as possible. Toward that end Microsoft releases a biannual transparency report. Within the latest transparency release Microsoft reports in the first half of 2016 they received a massive increase in FISA orders; primarily from U.S. governmental agencies. • “For the latest Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) data reported, Microsoft received 1,000-1,499 FISA orders seeking content disclosures affecting 12,000-12,499 accounts, compared to the 0-499 FISA orders seeking disclosure of content impacting 17,500-17,999 accounts reported for the previous period. We received 0-499...

    Judge Napolitano spoke out about a secret truth he knew, but FOX NEWS fired him anyway! Instead of taking his word for it, they walked him out the door. That was a sad picture, and I am so happy he is back. Most of us know the Judge is one of the most honorable and most trustworthy people in the world. I hope FOX learned a lesson and will respect Napolitano for his honesty and legal expertise. In March, Napolitano claimed President Obama went outside of American chain-of-command to British Intelligence to spy on Trump and his Transition Team. When...

    04/13/2017 9:26:49 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 25 replies
    Russiagate’s latest celebrity is a former Donald Trump associate named Carter Page. Page, who worked for Merrill Lynch in Moscow and speaks Russian, is a banker and investor who early in 2016 was a part of the amorphous group that was advising Trump on foreign policy. There is no evidence to suggest that he was ever an insider with the Trump campaign—quite the contrary. The Washington Post reports that he made several efforts to meet directly with Donald Trump but that his entreaties were rejected. So why the fuss? Page appears to have been a target of Russian intelligence for...

    The House and Senate Intelligence Committees are expanding their investigations into former National Security Adviser Susan Rice's alleged "unmasking" of U.S. persons who were incidentally collected in surveillance of foreign officials. An unnamed member of the House Intelligence Committee confirmed that Rice is now under "a full-blown investigation," Fox News reported on Wednesday. "We will be performing an accounting of all unmasking for political purposes focused on the previous White House administration. This is now a full-blown investigation," the committee member said. While she was national security advisor, Rice reportedly requested the names of US persons associated with the Trump...

    A newly revealed FISA warrant shows that a Trump campaign advisor was under surveillance by the Deep State during the campaign, adding even more evidence to Trump's assertion that the Obama administration had targeted him and his campaign. When President Trump took to Twitter last month to blast the Obama administration for using the intelligence community to wiretap Trump Tower, the liberal mainstream media and the Obama administration used words such as “sensational” and “false.” As more and more information comes out, it is now clear that words such as “delusional” and “dishonest” would best describe those who denied what...

Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! 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! How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! This...
