Astute students of history understand that government agencies often further their own interests and not the administration they are designated to serve. Seldom is the genuine national security advanced when bureaucrats pledge their loyalty to their respective fiefdoms of projecting influence and power. Absent in this supremacy struggle equation is the abstract notion that state legitimacy is founded upon the will and consent of the people. Such a quaint concept does not reflect a chapter in the training manual that breeds the spooks who operate as above the law and unaccountable super spies.
Guarding signals traffic or capturing foreign communication is a logical task to protect national secrets, while gathering information on intentions and operations from advocacies. Once upon a time the National Security Agency directed the ECHELON project as a cold war network. Over the decades the functions of electronic surveillance broadened into collection on all forms of data, no matter the source or the national origin of the subject.
The mapping from their “Big Scoop” capacity has achieved a technological level that all but obliterated any expectation of privacy. The Fourth Amendment is consistently ignored and the inadequate Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, FISA review is a mere rubber stamp from a kangaroo court. So when the Supreme Court places National Security Agency above the law, no one should be surprised.
Even less shocking is the sordid chronicle of the Central Intelligence Agency, documented by the Church Committee. The Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities provides intriguing bed time reading rivaling any Frederick Forsyth or John le Carré spy novel. And who can dismiss the Declassified CIA Memo Reveals CIA Directly Involved In JFK Assassination Cover-Up!
“Fifty-three years after the assassination of JFK, Mary’s Mosaic author Peter Janney has rediscovered a memo offering, prima facie evidence that the CIA was directly involved in the JFK assassination.
What’s more, this 1967 CIA memorandum was written by Janney’s own father, Frederick Wistar Morris Janney, a senior career CIA officer who began work at the Agency shortly after its creation in 1947.”
No matter what one thinks of the NSA and the CIA, the indisputable fact is that both operate upon the premise that protecting and advancing the imperial global empire is their prime imperative. Lost under this shadow government criminal syndicate is any effort to observe their oath of office to the American nation.
Supposedly agency employees work in the executive branch of government for the President. Yet, the deep state operates as if they are preeminent in their Machiavellian immoral system of perpetual lies and deceit. These fifth column establishment gatekeepers are the enemy of the republic. Citing the way the Intel eavesdrop presence targets the populist president, is clear cut proof of the nature of the intelligence community.
Watch the video NSA spying on the Trump administration?, and review the latest Larry Klayman lawsuit that goes to the core of the 1984 police state that is waging war against their commander and chief. Then read Emergency hearing sought to stop NSA ‘spying’ on Trump. “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.”
The open counterinsurgency originating out of Ft. Meade and Langley is evident for all to see. Just assess How The Nation’s Spooks Played The Game ‘Kill Mike Flynn’.
“National Security Advisor Gen. Michael T. Flynn (ret.) — who resigned Monday — was the victim of a “hit job” launched by intelligence operatives, Obama government holdovers and former Obama national security officials, according to former intelligence officials who spoke with The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
The talk within the tight-knit community of retired intelligence officers was that Flynn’s sacking was a result of intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council using a sophisticated “disinformation campaign” to create a crisis atmosphere. The former intel officers say the tactics hurled against Flynn over the last few months were the type of high profile hard-ball accusations previously reserved for top figures in enemy states, not for White House officials.
“This was a hit job,” charged retired Col. James Williamson, a 32-year Special Forces veteran who coordinated his operations with the intelligence community.”
The NSA routinely monitors foreign dignities conversations. The obvious source of original electronic taps most assuredly comes from signal traffic. Obama expands the NSA’s ability to share data with other agencies cites: “The National Security Agency is now able to share raw surveillance data with all 16 of the United States government’s intelligence groups, including the Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security and Drug Enforcement Administration.”
The notion that only small number of select senior officials would have had access to the Flynn and Russia ambassador Sergey Kislyak conversations just does not wash. When the outgoing CIA Director John Brennan went public with his denunciation of President Trump, one would immediately suspect that The Agency, not some rogue operative, gave the official blessing to take down Trump.
A shameful disclosure from former NSA intelligence analyst John Schindler in “He Will Die In Jail” – Intelligence Community Ready To “Go Nuclear” On Trump, states that these very blunt thoughts came from of a “senior intelligence community friend”. With friends like this, no wonder that the Trump administration is fighting an internal civil war with the entrenched snoop and spook class of the permanent war proponents.
Least one forgets, the CIA has perfected the exercise of fixing elections, overthrowing governments and controlling the news cycle internationally. Within their culture, applying these skills back on home soil is a very short leap.
So when Spies Keep Intelligence From Donald Trump on Leak Concerns, as reported in the WSJ, just ask who has excelled in leaking damaging fake news more than the CIA?
“U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised, according to current and former officials familiar with the matter.”
The covert undertaking of the NSA and CIA is to remove Donald Trump from the Presidency. One need not endorse or even support the Trump agenda, but one must concede that he is challenging the establishment as no other president in our lifetime. The coordinated push back from the hegemonic imperialists refuses to allow the populist elected President from deflating the bellicose unanimity that underwrites their world view.
Paul Craig Roberts has it correct in The Stakes for Trump and All of Us.
“We need to understand, and so does President Trump, that the hoax “war on terror” was used to transform intelligence agencies, such as the NSA and CIA, and criminal investigative agencies, such as the FBI, into Gestapo secret police agencies. Trump is now threatened by these agencies, because he rejects the neoconservative’s agenda of US world hegemony that supports the gigantic military/security annual budget.
Our secret police agencies are busy at work planting “intelligence” among the presstitute media that Trump is compromised by “Russian connections” and is a security threat to the United States. The plan is to make a case in the media, as was done against President Nixon, and to force Trump from office. To openly take on a newly elected president is an act of extraordinary audacity that implies enormous confidence, or else desperation, on the part of the police state agencies.”
The religion of State worship has destroyed all semblances of civil liberties and constitutional law, especially since the programmed plot on September 11, 2001 that brought America the Patriot Act despotic society. The NSA and CIA are responsible for the continuous misinformation faux newscast cycle as the former provide the raw falsification data, while the later uses their media assets to spread the fabrication of their pro interventionist narrative.
The ordinary citizens who voted for Trump are being betrayed by the espionage agents who want to consummate the police state. The secret service of the puppet regime poses a fundamental and true existential threat to the legitimacy of our government. They are the enemy of the sovereign authority that resides in the consent of the population.
All ideological factions need to rally against the concerted efforts to destroy our separations of power federalism. Cleaning house and purging the NSA and CIA may be virtually impossible without a clear outcry from the public. Remember this warning – Did Chuck Schumer Just Threaten Donald Trump?
“The new leader of Democrats in the Senate says Donald Trump is being “really dumb” for picking a fight with intelligence officials, suggesting they have ways to strike back, after the president-elect speculated Tuesday that his “so-called” briefing about Russian cyberattacks had been delayed in order to build a case.”
Well, now you are seeing with the release of all these leaks that present suspect intelligence. Support Trump in his battle with the intelligence agencies, before they take their retribution as they did on JFK.
