  • America's conservatives are as bad as Islamic terrorists, says fired FBI exec Says federal government needs vast more powers to spy on them

    Fired FBI executive Andrew McCabe says America's conservatives are as bad as Islamic terrorists and the federal government needs vastly increased powers to spy on them. The stunning words from McCabe came during his recent speech at the University of Chicago, and were captured by a report in The Federalist about his comments on conservatives. "I can tell you from my perspective of spending a lot of time focused on the radicalization of international terrorists and Islamic extremist and extremists of all stripes … is that this group shares many of the same characteristics of those groups that we've seen...

    More than a year ago, then-Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe made a stunning series of declassifications—the full implication of which many in the legacy media either ignored or never fully grasped. I believe this was due to mainstream media being handcuffed by many of the false narratives they had been peddling to the American public for a number of years about the Spygate scandal. One of the explosive declassifications involved handwritten notes by then-CIA Director John Brennan, who had personally briefed then-President Barack Obama and several members of his National Security Council at the White House about intercepted Russian...
  • John Durham Needs to Look Toward Mary McCord

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 11/5/21 | Sundance
    (...) ♦ SUMMARY: Mary McCord submitted the original false FISA application to the court using the demonstrably false Dossier. Mary McCord participated in the framing of Michael Flynn. Mary McCord worked with ICIG Michael Atkinson to create a fraudulent whistleblower complaint against President Trump; and Mary McCord used that manipulated complaint to assemble articles of impeachment on behalf of the joint House Intel and Judiciary Committee. Mary McCord then took up a defensive position inside the FISA court to protect the DOJ and FBI from sunlight upon all the aforementioned corrupt activity. You can clearly see how Mary McCord would...

    Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a damning report on Thursday chastising the Federal Bureau of Investigation for “widespread” violations in the intelligence agency’s applications for searches and surveillance filed through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. “The FBI’s Woods Procedures are designed to ensure FISA applications are ‘scrupulously accurate’ and require agents to document support for all factual assertions contained in them. However, our audit found numerous instances where this did not occur,” the Justice Department report states. In the newly released audit, Horowitz detailed how “the FBI was not meeting the expectations of its own protocols” by failing to comply...

  • FBI can’t back up claims in dozens of surveillance applications: Report(More FISA Abuse)

    The Justice Department’s internal watchdog said Thursday the FBI failed to support claims it made in almost 200 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications to monitor American citizens. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a scathing report saying the FBI ignored its own Woods Procedure — the set of rules the bureau follows to ensure its applications for secret warrants are accurate. Inspector general investigators uncovered at least 183 instances in which the Woods File — the documentation intended to back up the FBI‘s argument for surveillance — was missing, destroyed or incomplete.

    Several honest leftists have been red-pilled—that is, their eyes have been opened politically—because of the Democrats’ tyrannical moves in 2020/2021, That list includes Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi, Naomi Wolf, Tulsi Gabbard, and Bill Maher. They’re not Republicans, by any means, but their disgust with their party is growing. The most recent addition to this cavalcade of honest leftists may be British comedian Russell Brand, who just discovered the truth about Russiagate. Brand started as a stand-up comedian and then moved into TV and movie stints in both Britain and America. Many Americans came to know about him because of his...

Under the late Sen. John McCain, the Armed Services Committee engaged a former FBI official and his progressive-funded nonprofit to produce a report on the matter, according to court records obtained by Just the News.

    It took too long to confirm what we already knew about this fiasco. It's a classic tale of government overreach, one we're seeing more often with Joe Biden issuing vaccine mandate edicts and rebuilding the IRS to spy on our financial activities. No, this is something of a throwback. It deals with the Russian collusion hoax and the unlawful targeting of Carter Page, a former 2016 Trump campaign official. Page had worked with the CIA, State Department, and the FBI in years past. There was plenty of exculpatory evidence to prove he wasn't a Russian asset. Obama's Department of Justice...

    A newly declassified ruling from a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in June demonstrates that the government lied about its legal basis for spying on former Trump campaign official Carter Page.The ruling states that the information produced by the FBI’s unlawful investigation into Page was illegally obtained and that it “found violations of the government’s duty of candor in all four applications.” The ruling also orders the government that “it must temporarily retain, and potentially use and disclose, the information collected, largely in the context of ongoing or anticipated litigation.”Under the court’s 21-page assessment, information obtained by all four...

    Attention John Durham, reference Stephen Somma “Carter Page alleged in a lawsuit filed last week that an FBI counterintelligence agent used an alias during interviews with him in 2017. A retired FBI official who has worked in undercover operations says that an agent using an alias in that situation would be highly unusual. Page said in the lawsuit that Stephen Somma, a veteran counterintelligence agent, introduced himself as Steve Holt during their interviews. An inspector general’s report criticized Somma’s actions during the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe. (Snip) According to Page, veteran FBI counterintelligence agent Stephen Somma introduced himself as Steve...

    VIDEOJake Tapper loves to use the labels "election liars" and "The Big Lie." On Sunday he again labeled Jim Jordan as an "election liar." Of course, he is referring to the 2020 election but as you can see, Tapper himself was a big defender of "The Big Lie" that there was Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election which by his own standards would make him an "election liar." As part of his promotion of "The Big Lie" about the 2016 election, watch how Tapper in 2018 desperately defended "The Big Lie" that the FISA warrant against Carter Page was somehow...

    Tucker Carlson has an audience of around 3 million viewers, which is more than any other news program and most other programs generally. It is still only 3 million people out of a nation of 330 million people. In the grand scheme of things, Tucker Carlson is influential in the way many others are -- he has a core fan base that listens to him, generally trusts him, talks to other people and posts on the internet. Nielsen ratings showed Rush Limbaugh had tens of millions of listeners, but the TV networks rarely focused on him. They focused on Carlson...

Carlson repeatedly replied, “I appreciate that.” As Bailey began to challenge Carlson on the impact of his views, Carlson whispers, “Settle down, son.” Bailey tells Carlson not to call him a son before the video ends.

    An unhinged leftist confronted Fox News host Tucker Carlson at a fly fishing shop in Livingston, Montana on Friday. “You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that,” Dan Bailey, a fishing guide said as he got in Tucker Carlson’s face. Tucker kept his cool but stood his ground. “Settle down, son,” Tucker said as he walked away in an effort to deescalate, but the man followed him around and continued to argue. The original video was posted to Dan Bailey’s Instagram account and he claimed Tucker Carlson killed people with vaccine misinformation. “This...

    Tucker Carlson had a similar experience when an NSA whistleblower revealed to him that the NSA was monitoring his communications. He reported this on his Fox television show, and it is safe to say that the NSA became furious. Tucker, like me, believes that the Constitution means what it says. The rights it protects are both man-made, like the right to vote; and natural, like religion, speech, the press, self-defense, travel and privacy. The late Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis called privacy the right most valued by civilized persons. The point here is that the CIA folks who triggered the...

Weissmann said, “If you think about what Tucker Carlson could have done here, he could have followed the same route that “The New York Times” and other respected journalists did when they were incidentally overheard and may have, in fact, not been incidentally had their call records obtained by the Department of Justice. They could have gone to the attorney general, and Tucker Carlson could have joined them...

    We now know the National Security Agency (NSA) not only was monitoring the electronic communications of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, but that either NSA or senior Biden officials leaked information from his communications to the news media in an attempt to smear him.Axios reported July 7: “Tucker Carlson was talking to U.S.-based Kremlin intermediaries about setting up an interview with Vladimir Putin shortly before the Fox News host accused the National Security Agency of spying on him, sources familiar with the conversations tell Axios.”The Axios article proves several troubling aspects of this story.First, Carlson was right. This confirms what...
