    Thursday evening on the radio, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin broke big news. The Landmark Legal Foundation, of which Mark Levin is president, has filed a request with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The request asks the secret court to order an investigation into the leaking of surveillance activity conducted on members of Donald Trump’s team, in accordance with the rulings of FISA. The filing Levin read cited “a flurry of recent published reports” that show an “enormous” amount of leaked classified information has been used for political purposes in opposition to President Donald Trump.
  • 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.
  • Obama-era Surveillance Timeline

    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.
  • Trump's Lies

    The furor over Trump’s tweet regarding being wiretapped lives on. His detractors characterize everything that comes out of his mouth as either annoying, destructive or an outright lie. Since these people cannot be used as a gauge of his veracity, I decided it was important to do my own analysis. My interest started after I wrote a column about factors surrounding the issue of his tweet stating he was wiretapped. I took the position that you had to analyze his statement and not take it literally. He really meant he and his people were having their activities and communications...
  • Why Susan Rice didn’t think she did anything wrong (Hillary had her tapped for Secy of State)

    “There were occasions when I would receive a report in which a U.S. person was referred to, name not provided, just a U.S. person, and sometimes in that context in order to understand the importance of that report, and assess its significance, it was necessary to find out or request the information as to who that U.S. official was.” That was former National Security Advisor Susan Rice on MSNBC on April 4 openly admitting that she had in fact been involved in requesting the “unmasking” of the identities of U.S. persons who were caught in intercepts of foreign persons under...

    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...
  • Will Russiagate Become Obamagate? (Good stuff by former CIA officer)

    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...

    EXCERPT---Unless you happen to be a Mafia don or a drug kingpin, the US government doesn't spy on its citizens. Trump's claim of being wiretapped has been totally debunked by FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and House intelligence committee Chair Devin Nunes. A source also told ABC News that on one occasion Susan Rice requested the unmasking of President-elect Trump's transition team officials in a foreign intelligence report that had nothing to do with the Russian Federation. So did Susan Rice have a political motive in seeking the information? (NOTE: One very good reason...
  • Report: House Investigation of Susan Rice Scandal Expanding

    Fox News reported Tuesday night that members of the House Intelligence Committee have expanded their investigation into the Susan Rice surveillance controversy. Appearing on The O'Reilly Factor, investigative reporter Adam Housley said the following: They're looking into allegations where Americans including politicians have possibly been unmasked and had their information collected into the files, similar to what they did to the Trump team. Housley also said that both the House and Senate investigations are being stonewalled: They say the FBI is being very difficult. We're told [investigators] just want to know about the unmasking. How frequent was this? Who was...

    Marie Harf, a Fox News contributor and former spokeswoman for Secretary of State John Kerry, scrambled on Wednesday to defend the Obama-era Syria deal from 2013, admitting it was not "perfect." Fox News host Bill Hemmer asked Harf whether she agreed with President Trump's decision to order a military strike against Syria last week. "I did. I thought it was a good response to President Assad's use of chemical weapons," Harf said. "What I'm more focused on now quite frankly is the strategy going forward and what happens next in Syria." Harf said that Congress did not give the Obama...

    President Donald Trump dismissed Susan Rice’s assertion that she did not unmask General Michael Flynn for political reasons. “Does anybody really believe that?” he asked during an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. “Nobody believes that, even the people that try to protect her in the news media.” Trump reasserted his claim, adding that he and “so many other people” were the victims of surveillance and boasted that he was correct when he accused the Obama administration of wiretapping his team at Trump Tower.

    I assume this Washington Post story is true: “FBI obtained FISA warrant to monitor former Trump adviser Carter Page.” It confirms what has been sporadically reported since late last year, that the Obama administration sought and ultimately received a FISA order to spy on at least one associate of Donald Trump. So Trump’s famous tweets were, in substance, true.***SNIP***UPDATE: We are now starting to get a picture of how sinister this whole Democratic Party misinformation campaign is. Through the last half of 2016, the Obama administration was desperately searching for evidence of some link between the Trump presidential campaign and...

    The FBI had obtained a secret court order to monitor communications of Carter Page, Washington Post reported on April 11. Page was allegedly a foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign, although Trump’s team denies his role. Page is an oil industry consultant and founder of Global Energy Capital, a New York investment fund specializing in oil and gas industries in Central Asia and Russia, and his business deals with Russian oil companies Gazprom and Rosneft have been used to accuse the Trump campaign of dealings with Russia. The news of the wiretap also adds evidence to the ongoing investigation...

    After a review of the same intelligence reports brought to light by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers and aides have so far found no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal, multiple sources in both parties tell CNN. . .One congressional intelligence source described the requests made by Rice as "normal and appropriate" for officials who serve in that role to the president. And another source said there's "absolutely" no smoking gun in the reports, urging the White House to declassify them to make clear there was nothing alarming in the documents.Still,...

    Rev. Al Sharpton claimed this weekend that former National Security Advisor Susan Rice is just the latest victim of a Republican campaign of calumny against influential African-American females—an effort the black activist argued has already targeted California Congressman Maxine Waters and journalist April Ryan. Sharpton declared during his weekly rally on Saturday that the allegations are part of a pattern of conservative attacks on black women. “Same time we saw that they want to jump on Susan Rice. Now, how many black women are ya’ll gonna try to demonize?” Sharpton told an applauding crowd at the Harlem headquarters of his...

    Life comes at you fast. ThatÂ’s all I can say right now about the Obama administrationÂ’s disastrous Syrian policy that did nothing to stop bloodshed or hold any one accountable for that matter because it probably would have led to a military decision that President Obama didnÂ’t want to make. In 2014, the administration celebrated its landmark accomplishment of removing SyriaÂ’s declared chemical weapons stockpile without military strikes. Russia helped us with these negotiations, which were a total failure since chemical weapons were used against the town of Khan Shaykhun located in the Idlib Province last week. The attack killed...

    A former Obama official acknowledged Sunday that the U.S. "always knew" an agreement with Syrian President Bashar Assad did not clear all chemical weapons out of Syria, despite the fact that the administration touted the deal as an unequivocal success at the time. "We always knew we had not gotten everything, that the Syrians had not been fully forthcoming in their declaration," Tony Blinken, a former deputy secretary of state and former deputy national security adviser under Barack Obama, told the New York Times.

    The chemical weapon attack by the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad on the rebel-held town Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib Province on April 4 once again underscores what a foreign policy failure President Obama was and what a serial liar Susan Rice is. On January 16, 2017, Rice, who served as U.N. Ambassador during Obama’s first term and was rewarded for her Benghazi lies with the post of National Security Advisor, where she could be compelled to testify before Congress, Gave what amounted to an exit interview with NPR. During the interview she crowed about the Obama administration’s success in eliminating...
