    Former United States President George W Bush ordered the CIA to search for a replacement for Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat after the escalation of the second Intifada in 2001, the BBC said, quoting recently released British documents. The US effort came after the failure of the Camp David negotiations in 2000 between Arafat and then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. The talks followed the escalation of violence in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. According to the BBC documents, Bush expected early on that Ariel Sharon, who succeeded Barak, would use the Gaza Strip to sow divisions...
  • Left-wing think tank responsible for thousands of fake Russia stories: new Twitter Files

    01/30/2023 4:19:40 PM PST · by lowbridge · 32 replies ^ | January 28, 2023 | Jon Levine
    A left-wing think tank erroneously claiming to track Russian online activity was responsible for thousands of bogus stories asserting the nation’s influence in US politics, according to the latest batch of Twitter Files. The Hamilton 68 “dashboard” was the brainchild of former FBI special agent and MSNBC contributor Clint Watts and operated under the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a think tank founded in 2017 — shortly after former President Trump took office. The ASD Advisory Council included such figures as top Clinton ally John Podesta, Obama-era acting CIA Director Michael Morell, former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, and former...

    Former President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday encouraged the newly formed House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government to probe aspects of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Crossfire Hurricane Investigation and the probe headed up by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into the “Russia hoax.” “The new House Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government is a rare chance to expose the breathtaking corruption of the security state, the media, and the Washington swamp,” Trump said in his latest campaign video released on Wednesday, before laying out several “questions the committee will hopefully be asking.” [cut]...

    Longtime CIA officer and former Moscow station chief Dan Hoffman called out President Joe Biden for not being transparent about the role of the United States in the war in Ukraine. "The president needs to take a page out of President Reagan's book or FDR's book or JFK — somebody — and explain to us what's going on and why it matters to us," Hoffman said on the John Solomon Reports podcast. The U.S. announced this week that it would be sending three dozen tanks to the Ukrainians ahead of an expected Russian offensive. The 31 M1A1 Abrams tanks will...
  • Deep Triggered, The CIA and Intelligence Community are Very Worried About the House Subcommittee on Federal Government Weaponization

    01/29/2023 8:40:01 AM PST · by E. Pluribus Unum · 22 replies
    The website Just Security, author former CIA operative Douglas Johnson, is very concerned about the House Subcommittee on Federal Government Weaponization. [SEE ARTICLE HERE} The concern is clouded under the auspices of fearing politicization by questioning the intelligence community about weaponized government. The article is a mainstream bureaucratic outlook where the professional intelligence apparatus views themselves as beyond being accountable to the elected public officials, specifically the House members of the committee. The permanent unelected officials have a self-perception above the reach of the elected officials. In essence, there is no public accountability model within their view of their operation....

    Tucker Carlson made some explosive assertions Friday, suggesting that the CIA and the FBI brought down Richard Nixon because he was on to their efforts to undermine the American system as the Founding Fathers had intended it to run and knew that the CIA was involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Carlson’s segment quickly became wildly controversial, but is it true? We may never know for sure — and that in itself demonstrates yet again the need to demand and enforce complete transparency and accountability from these agencies that all too easily can go rogue.Carlson said: “Richard Nixon...

    President Joe Biden, embattled in controversy stemming from his handling of classified documents, had previously tanked former President Jimmy Carter’s nomination for CIA director over his alleged mishandling of classified documents while Biden served in the U.S. Senate. In 1977, Carter nominated Ted Sorensen to lead the CIA.

    youtube ^ | January 19 2023 | Tucker Carlson
    Skip to the 6-minute mark and listen through to the end. Tucker talks about Nixon winning by the biggest margin in history, Watergate, Nixon's threat to CIA director Helms about exposing "who shot John", Mark Felt Asst FBI Director for counterintelligence being Deep Throat, and Bob Woodward had been in Naval Intelligence. Very interesting stuff, particularly since Carlson has at least twice in the last few weeks stated openly that the CIA assassinated JFK. The Daily Caller mysteriously left this part of the video out of their reporting on what he was talking about last night. I hope Carlson has...

    The following is an excerpt from "SPYFAIL: Foreign Spies, Moles, Saboteurs, and the Collapse of America's Counterintelligence" by James Bamford. An alleged spy within the FBI may be largely responsible for unraveling the CIA's Chinese spy network. The FBI's website carries a stark warning. "The counterintelligence and economic espionage efforts emanating from the government of China," it says, "are a grave threat to the economic well-being and democratic values of the United States. Confronting this threat is the FBI's top counterintelligence priority." But far worse is the threat to the lives of scores of courageous Chinese agents who have volunteered...

    One of the signatories of the open letter more than two years ago attempting to discredit the findings from the content of Hunter Biden's laptop computer admitted in an interview with The Australian that most of what was discovered in the emails had to be based in reality. Douglas Wise, a former Defense Intelligence Agency deputy director and former senior CIA operations officer, said that "all of us figured that a significant portion of that content had to be real to make any Russian disinformation credible." Wise added in the interview published on Sunday that he had no regrets signing...

    The FBI revealed how the bureau uses the CIA and National Security Agency to probe the private lives of Americans without a warrant in its updated rulebook, which is the first version made public since the Obama administration. The handbook, rewritten in 2021, confirms a decade-old leak showcasing the bureau’s collaboration with the CIA and NSA for FBI probes that may involve surveillance without court orders against people not accused of any crimes. Such probes are known as “assessments” at the FBI. The revelations will fuel critics who have long accused the FBI of abusing its national security surveillance powers.

    Fox News viewers are degenerate drug addicts, desperate for their next fix of government-hating heroin.That was the take of ex-Republican Congressman turned MSNBC analyst David Jolly on Katie Phang's show on Saturday morning. Jolly was reacting to the news that Speaker Kevin McCarthy will reportedly organize a Frank Church-style committee to investigate abuses in recent years by the FBI and CIA. Liberals loved that in the 1970s! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Independent journalist Matt Taibbi dropped more Twitter Files yesterday that dived a bit further into just how far the deep state went in censoring the information available to the American people. As we already know, the FBI had a veritable revolving door of former agents finding critical positions in the company. The FBI wasn’t the only spook outfit, though. The reality is not only did the FBI and CIA enable embedded former agents in the organization, they essentially made Twitter the de facto subcontractor for their counterintelligence work. As previously reported, the incoming requests for suppressing accounts due to alleged...

    According to a report by investigative journalist Jack Murphy that was released Sunday, the CIA has been using the intelligence services of a European NATO country to conduct sabotage attacks in Russian territory since Russia invaded Ukraine in February. The report cites multiple unnamed former US intelligence and military officials.While the report states that no US personnel are on the ground in Russia, it does confirm that the operations are being directed by the CIA with the use of an ally’s intelligence which adds a second layer of plausible deniability. That added layer of deniability is a large part of...
