  • Obama's DC Mansion is the Electronic Surveillance Clearinghouse for Trump Leaks [Vanity]

    It was a bit obvious, wasn't it? Obama purchased an impenetrable, brick-fortified control center to disseminate leaks illegally obtained on Team Trump. Obama's spy center includes none other than Valerie Jarrett who resides there. Strange, isn't it? It's almost as strange as Deep State operative Comey and pal of Robert Mueller setting up shop to spy on Trump and getting away with it. Does the Deep State still have their agents in our various spy agencies such as the CIA, NSA, NRO, etc., feeding information acquired by a rogue surveillance satellite to Team Obama-Jarrett in their brick fortress? Does Team...
  • Trump White House Plans to Revive Privacy Board

    07/26/2017 2:52:58 PM PDT · by deplorableindc · 5 replies
    With just one board member and unable to replace staff, the independent agency tasked with upholding privacy and civil liberties seemed headed for hibernation. But administration officials say that’s not likely to happen, with nominations expected soon. The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board has been on crutches since last year, when Chairman David Medine resigned and took with him the board's ability to hire staff. In January, it fell below the three-member quorum to approve reports and begin probes. Since February, Republican Elisebeth Collins, a former Justice Department official, has been the only member of the board, which has...

    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.

  • EVIDENCE: Supreme Court Justice John Roberts Was ‘Hacked’ By Obama Official

    07/13/2017 1:02:12 AM PDT · by UKrepublican · 76 replies
    Evidence shows that John Roberts, chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, was “hacked” by a Deep State surveillance operation overseen by Obama administration CIA director John Brennan and Obama director of national intelligence James Clapper. Roberts, the Bush appointee who made the decisive vote to uphold the constitutionality of Obamacare before the 2012 election, was allegedly the victim of the same Deep State surveillance program that spied on President Donald Trump. Tapes released by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow — preserved on a Whistleblower Soundcloud page — show real estate billionaire Timothy Blixseth explaining Brennan and Clapper’s surveillance...

    In vast social-engineering experiment, facial-recognition systems crunch data from ubiquitous cameras to monitor citizens SHENZHEN—Gan Liping pumped her bike across a busy street, racing to beat a crossing light before it turned red. She didn’t make it. Immediately, her face popped up on two video screens above the street. “Jaywalkers will be captured using facial-recognition technology,” the screens said. Facial-recognition technology, once a specter of dystopian science fiction, is becoming a feature of daily life in China, where authorities are using it on streets, in subway stations, at airports and at border crossings in a vast experiment in social engineering....

    The company, which wasn't named, quietly pushed back in the government's secret court against the National Security Agency's surveillance program, but ultimately failed. {snip}....All of the documents relate to the government's use of the so-called Section 702 statute, named after its place in the law books, a provision of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The statute authorizes the collection of data on foreign persons overseas who use US tech and telecoms services. The law is widely known in national security circles as forming the legal basis authorizing the so-called PRISM surveillance program, which reportedly taps data from nine tech titans...
  • Did Another Intelligence Director Lie to Wyden About Surveillance?

    06/07/2017 1:03:22 PM PDT · by deplorableindc · 9 replies
    Privacy advocates and journalists want to know what Sen. Ron Wyden is up to -- and whether the Oregon Democrat elicited another lie about surveillance from a director of national intelligence during Wednesday's Senate intelligence committee hearing. Wyden asked one of the final questions at the hearing that dealt with the investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election and with Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which expires later this year if Congress does not act. Wyden, a forceful privacy advocate, asked Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, with whom he had sparred earlier, a simple standalone...

    Or someone even higher up? The quote is from the film National Treasure. It is a terrific film about the theft of the Declaration of Independence from the National Archives. The film is chock full of real American history mixed with actual patriotism, the bęte noire of the left. But we Americans find ourselves at a tipping point. It appears that the Obama administration, with the willing submission of our intelligence agencies, surveilled Donald Trump, his campaign and his transition team beginning as early as October 2015 and escalated the activity after he won the election. Why? No one thought...

    After last September’s revelations that Palmer Luckey donated $100,000 to a pro-Trump organization dedicated to spreading anti-Clinton memes, the Oculus founder disappeared from public view. He resurfaced in March following his departure from Facebook, and is now back in the spotlight with a new company that makes technology designed to monitor border crossings. Information on Luckey’s new startup comes from a New York Times article yesterday that cites three “people familiar” with the matter. The business reportedly uses the same kind of lidar tech found in self-driving cars for the surveillance of country borders and restricted areas such as military...

Aside from enjoying my breakfast with the lovely Heather Childress, I learn what the ′Big News′ item is for the day ahead. The big topic this morning was a Midnight tweet on Twitter by President Donald Trump. The story is that he allegedly misspelled the word ′coverage′ when he wrote ′covfefe′ instead in a tweet about the negative press. As a Shaolin Master Abbott of the Temple of Trump Fu, I saw the true purpose of the...

    The other three subpoenas relate to questions around why Obama administration officials "unmasked" and distributed the names of Trump associates in classified intelligence reports. The Journal reported that those subpoenas were issued to the CIA, FBI, and NSA and are seeking information related to unmasking requests made by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former CIA director John Brennan, and former UN ambassador Samantha Power.

    Recently declassified documents reveal that the Obama Administration's spying on American citizens went far beyond what the law allowed. Under a pretext of surveilling foreigners, intelligence agencies under Obama gathered data on political opponents and illegally shared this information with outside parties. Former FBI Director James Comey falsely assured Congress that "this information was lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked." In contrast, an Inspector General's report found "disregard for rules, inadequate training and deficient oversight." The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) found "hundreds of violations of the FBI's rules" that occurred during Comey's tenure as FBI Director. Senate Minority Leader...

    HotAir ^ | 05/26/2017 | Allahpundit
    As a legal matter, this seems straightforward. The FBI’s gotten too loose with sharing Americans’ data in violation of its own “minimization” rules and you’d better believe Jim Comey will be asked about it the next time he testifies before Congress. If he testifies before Congress. As a political matter, it’s more complicated. Why did agents access the info and, in some cases, share it with people who weren’t supposed to see it? Were they spying on Americans for reasons unrelated to national security or were they scrambling to foil what they thought were imminent terror attacks? If the latter...

    Despite the fact that a report released Wednesday unearthed how the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated the privacy rights of Americans, the three major left-leaning broadcast news networks neglected to shed light on the issue during their evening broadcasts. According to a Circa News report, previously top-secret documents have revealed that Obama's NSA engaged in "some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community."Circa reports that the documents show that over 5 percent of searches seeking upstream internet data on the NSA's section 702 database "violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence...

    Fox News (politics) ^ | May 25, 2017 | Alex Diaz
    The secret court that oversees government snooping took the Obama administration to task late last year, suggesting it created "a very serious Fourth Amendment issue" by violating rules the government itself had implemented regarding the surveillance of Americans. According to top-secret documents made public by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court – often referred to as the FISA court – the government admitted that, just days before the 2016 election, NSA analysts were violating surveillance rules on a regular basis. This pattern of overreach, coupled with the timing of the government’s disclosure, resulted in an unusually harsh rebuke of the administration’s practices...

    Well, as we discuss intelligence leaks, the workings of the Deep State, and unmasking, let’s circle back to the Obama administration, which violated Americans’ privacy through the National Security Agency for years. The lack of following protocol was so bad that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court (FISA) scolded them for having an “institutional lack of candor.” Circa, who first covered the story, had more [emphasis mine] Nets Blackout Massive Constitutional Violations by Obama’s NSA The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent...
