WASHINGTON, DC: A November 19th, 2016 Washington Post report says that Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper tried to get NSA director Admiral Mike Rogers fired. In a memo that was deliberately leaked as an organized smear campaign, senior officials attack Rogers abilities, question his leadership, and otherwise tainting his record.
As the WaPo reported it: The heads of the Pentagon and the nations intelligence community have recommended to President Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, be removed. The recommendation, delivered to the White House last month, was made by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter. The real reason Clapper wanted Rogers fired That would be Clapper, Brennan, and Ash Carter. The news reports treated Rogers with thinly disguised contempt, portraying him in an extremely negative light. Blaming him for intelligence failings against ISIS and the leak of NSA cyber tools. Depicting this as a righteous and perfectly normal development. Nothing to see here folks.
But there were deeper reasons for the sudden, and public move, by the now exposed Junta leaders Clapper and Brennan, and Defense Secretary Ash Carter.
First, Donald Trump had just been elected President.
Secondly, Mike Rogers had discovered, stopped, and revealed to FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer overwhelming evidence of sustained illegal use of FISA 702 authority by John Brennan and James Clapper to use NSA surveillance systems to spy on Americans. He testified about his findings to Judge Collyer on October 26th, 2016, 4 days after Peter Strzok and Andrew Weissmann got a FISA warrant on Carter Page.
Briefing President-elect Trump without telling Brennan Thirdly, and most egregiously, Admiral Mike Rogers had briefed President elect Donald Trump in Trump Tower. Without telling John Brennan or James Clapper in advance. Telling him in explicit detail what he knew and what Trump was facing. (Behind the Obama administrations shady plan to spy on the Trump campaign)
Informing Trump that Trump Tower was under surveillance. Rogers was doing his patriotic duty to the constitution.
Durham probing Bond villains in the Obama White House In other words, exposing the emerging coup de tat, waged by the Obama White House against the duly elected incoming President. No wonder Brennan was concerned. (How NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers Saved The U.S. From a Massive Constitutional Crisis)
The next day Trump moved his transition headquarters from Trump Tower to Bedminster Country Club in New Jersey. When Brennan and Clapper learned of the private Rogers briefing they panicked. As well they should have. Counter measures would now have to be taken.
The Ben Rhodes media manipulation smear machine kicked into overdrive. Against Rogers and Trump.
Triggering alarm bells in the Obama White House As the Washington Post reported it exclusively, from their highly placed leaked sources:
The news comes as Rogers is being considered by President-elect Donald Trump to be his nominee for director of national intelligence to replace Clapper as the official who oversees all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. In a move apparently unprecedented for a military officer, Rogers, without notifying superiors, traveled to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday at Trump Tower. That caused consternation at senior levels of the administration, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal personnel matters.
The real threat was what Brennan was doing
The article makes it appear that Rogers violated the chain of command. Usurped his authority. Was an egregious loose cannon trying to curry favor with the new President. The truth is far more sinister.
Rogers was going to tell the truth.
Durham has questions for Brennan, NSAs Mike Rogers has the answers Rogers was a threat to the very core of the Obama White House. He had already exposed the cardinal secret of illegal NSA surveillance to the FISA Court. He had already briefed the target of the coup, the incoming President, Donald Trump.
Of course he wasnt going to tell Brennan and Clapper what he was doing in advance. They were the criminals perpetrating the very actions Rogers was warning Trump about. Rogers, who retired last year in 2018 after 4 years at the helm of the NSA, was following his duty to the country as an American.
Why would Ash Carter be working with John Brennan The question is, why would Ashton Carter, the Defense Secretary, involve himself with the mastermind of the Russia Hoax? How is it that Carter became a co-conspirator with James Clapper, who officially calls for Rogers termination?
How was the information given to the press?
There can only be one conclusion.
Add the Defense Department to the list of top government agency officials that a part of creating or covering up the Russia Hoax. The Obama White House used the intelligence agencies, the CIA, DOJ, State Department and now the Defense Department to target, spy on, surveil, and if necessary destroy their perceived political opponents.
Ash Carter, recently retired and currently flogging a new book, needs to answer some questions. Why did he join Clapper in calling for Rogers termination? Was he aware of the illegal spying on Americans from 2012 to 2016? What other activities did he coordinate with John Brennan and James Clapper in the course of the Russia Hoax?
Smearing Rogers in the press
Because the timing is just too coincidental for this to be a typical turf fight. Although that is, of course, how the Washington Post portrays it. The WaPo got the exclusive because of their close relationship with the very officials laying the groundwork for the Russian hoax. Brennan, Clapper and Comey. Who were leaking the Steele dossier all over Washington. The same officials who would leak to them a month later about Michael Flynn.
Now they had Mike Rogers in their sights.
Because Admiral Mike Rogers was a mortal threat to the perpetrators of the attempted coup in the Obama White House. He remains a mortal threat to Brennan, Comey, Clapper and many others. The attempt to fire Rogers so close to Trumps election, so soon after they knew of their FISA court exposure, leaves no other explanation.
Mike Rogers must be taken out of the way.
The crux of the Russia Hoax: Covering up illegal spying on Americans For at least four years the Obama White House had been illegally using FISA 702 authority to access NSA surveillance systems to spy on an array of American citizens. James Comey had personally authorized the illegal surveillance by three contractors working directly for James Clapper and John Brennan.
In late 2015, Rogers became aware of the illegal protocols they were using to access the NSA systems. He ordered a preliminary audit, and cut off access to the three contractors in April of 2016. Rogers then ordered a complete audit.
In October of 2016 Rogers presented the findings to FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer.
On March 9, 2016, Department of Justice (DOJ) oversight personnel learned that the FBI had been employing outside contractors who had access to raw Section 702 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) data, and retained that access after their work for the FBI was completed. The Ruling of the FISA Court: Illegal surveillance occurred on a systematic scale Rogers found with Collyer agreeing, the illegal use of NSA systems began in at least 2012. For over 4 years. In her ruling to the Attorney General in April of 2017, FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer found that of 40000 queries into the NSA data base, that 85%, or 32,500, of them were illegal and unauthorized.
Judge Collyer ruled that there were systematic violations of the law and the 4th Amendment, as well as the civil rights of each and every American illegally spied on. Each and every one of the 32,500 illegal inquiries was an intentional criminal act.
She found that the 3 contractors frequently used the same names in multiple queries. That they had spied on literally thousands of prominent Americans. Illegally. Consistently. For extended periods of time.
That they reported directly to John Brennan and James Clapper. Collyer confirms the authorization was illegal. That FBI Director James Comey is behind its authorization. Judge Collyer describes the actions and conduct of the DOJ in this matter as institutional dishonesty.
The eyes only Brennan memos Brennan took the fruits of the illegal surveillance and compiled secret eyes only briefings for Barack Obama. They were given to Obama in sealed envelopes. The materials were not within any national intelligence briefing. They had very narrow circulation.
They undoubtably were regular reports on the Americans who were being illegally spied on. Mitt Romney. Mitch McConnell. Paul Ryan. Chief Justice John Roberts. Antonin Scalia. Journalist Michael Hastings. Donald Trump.
And that is the dirty little secret that led to the framing of Donald Trump. The Steele dossier. The framing of George Papadopoulos by John Brennan and agents of Italian, Australian and British Intelligence. The illegal FISA warrants on Carter Page. The Andrew Weissman Peter Strzok insurance policy.
The entire Mueller inquisition. It was all necessary to hide the illegal activities of the Obama White House. The overt weaponization of government agencies against political opponents. The flagrant abuse of NSA surveillance systems to illegally spy on Americans. Admiral Mike Rogers: American Hero Thats why they had to try to fire Mike Rogers. He is the man who knows too much. Remember Donald Trumps election is new. Susan Rice is chairing the extraordinary committee serving as the junta for the coup attempt against Donald Trump.
But Admiral Rogers does play it smar. He is the good guy in this whole sordid story. The man who saved America. Rogers reported what he discovered to the FISA Court.
Admiral Rogers has testified to the Inspector General Michael Horowitz. He will undoubtably be speaking with US Attorney John Durham as his investigation into the malfeasance of the Russia Hoax continues to expand.
John Durham is probing unauthorized and political surveillance Durham is looking at it all. The NSA surveillance abuse. The use of the Steele dossier for both FISA warrants and in the John Brennan / Peter Strzok Intelligence Community Assessment of October 2016. The use of Foreign intelligence agencies to spy on the Trump campaign.
John Durham, Brennan, Durham, Rogers, Clapper, Collyer, FISA Court
Attorney John Durham
The secret eyes only briefings of John Brennan for Barack Obama.
The actions of Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, Valerie Jarrett and the rest of the junta members at the White House. Vice President Joe Biden. Sally Yates. John Brennan. James Clapper. James Comey. The whole corrupt cabal of miscreants who created and implemented the Russia Hoax. The role of John Kerry at the State Department.
And now add the role of Secretary Defense Ashton Carter in trying to get Mike Rogers fired.
John Durham will get to the bottom of all of it. Admiral Mike Rogers, American hero, will be an essential witness as the truth finally comes out. When justice is finally served to the coup plotters.
Is not Mike Rogers the one who tipped off Trump about the spying on Trump Tower?
yes right after the election.
This CDN outlet is still a toss up.
Is it a blog masquerading as a news outlet?
The pimp’s history speaks for itself:
Straight pimpin, yo.
Imo, the only time we get actual news from “news outlets” is when they’re cornered by blogs that did the actual digging and came up with real news.
The last place to look for legit news any more is the msm.
This is old news but it’s always good to repeat it periodically. To tell you the truth this thing has gotten so far flung and complicated things just fade out.
This would make Tinker Taylor, or The Spy Who Came In From The Cold look like a cartoon.
Your blog gave me fibromyalgia in my ovaries.
Yep he is the one.
Funny how the GOP-e Senate seems to ignore this.
All designed to save Graham and several other Senate seats.
The FR posts just had that “I’m too friggin lazy to do my background research so...” feel about it.
That’s opposed to the other pimps who have that “My opinion is too damn important to keep it to myself, so...” feel.
The fact that Michael Hastings is on this list is very interesting.
It’s a good thing I didn’t take a drink of something before reading that. lolol
Thank you Admiral Rogers.
Yeah. Its covered a few lines down in the article.
They tried to get Rogers. They did get Flynn.
“The whole corrupt cabal of miscreants “
If you’re going to name them, name them all! Why is B.Hussein Obama conveniently left out of all of these lists?
He’s the head miscreant!
