  • Media Must Report Truth Of Anti-Trump Spy Operation Before It’s Too Late For Them

    The Federalist ^ | May 17, 2020 | Mollie Hemmingway
    As facts about the Obama administration's spying and leaking are spilling out, media have a brief window of opportunity to salvage some credibility. As new details emerge about the Obama administration’s broad spying-and-leaking campaign against the incoming Trump administration, reporters have a choice to make about whether to cover this story honestly, at long last. There is a brief window of time afforded the media to get the story right. They should take advantage of it.Journalist Lee Smith already noted the seriousness of the problem facing legacy media after the implosion of the Russia collusion conspiracy theory they peddled. “Americans...
  • Majority of U.S. Intelligence Agencies Are In Agreement About How the Coronavirus Came About

    The majority of the United States' 17 intelligence agencies are in agreement. They believe that the coronavirus started in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Even though the intelligence community believes this virus started in a lab, they believe its leak was unintentional and the result of an accident, a senior intelligence official told the Daily Caller. Although all the agencies are not on board, a leaked intelligence report from the "Five Eyes" intelligence alliance – made up of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand – shows that 70 to 75 percent of the U.S.' agencies believe...
  • Devin Nunes Tells Sara Carter: “ICIG Michael Atkinson is Under Active Investigation”

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | January 6, 2020 | Sundance
    Sara Carter held a pod-cast interview with HPSCI ranking member Devin Nunes.  At approximately 36:25 of the interview congressman Nunes discusses the testimony of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. The transcript from Atkinson’s House testimony has never been released.  Rep. Nunes states the reason HPSCI Chairman Schiff has kept the transcript hidden and classified is because the content is extremely damaging to the origin of the impeachment fraud.  Additionally, the testimony from Atkinson conflicted with evidence which surfaced later: “[Atkinson] is under active investigation. I’m not gonna go any farther than that because you know obviously he has a...
  • ‘Ukraine-Gate’ Is About the Russian Hack That Wasn’t

    American Greatness ^ | September 25th, 2019 | Julie Kelly
    One of the animating chapters in the Trump-Russian collusion saga was the claim that Russia infiltrated the Democratic National Committee’s email server in the spring of 2016. That hack, according to collusion truthers, and the subsequent release of damaging emails exchanged between top Democratic Party officials was central to Vladimir Putin’s scheme to sway the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. But the evidence to support this widely accepted claim is sketchy at best and appears to be under appropriate scrutiny by prosecutors now examining the origins of the FBI’s pre-election investigation into the Trump campaign for “colluding” with...

    With Republicans poised to lose control of investigatory panels in the House of Representatives, President Trump is resurrecting a potentially powerful board capable of intimately reviewing intelligence agency conduct on his direct orders. The White House announced five appointments to the Presidential Intelligence Advisory Board on Tuesday evening, after selecting a chairman and vice chairwoman earlier this year. The dormant board created by former President Dwight Eisenhower has no formal powers, but derives significant authority directly from the president, operating as his surrogate to smooth over agency rivalries, investigate misconduct, and evaluate intelligence collection policies. xperts say Trump could roil...

    PJ Media ^ | August 12, 2018 | By Michael Ledeen
    Victor Davis Hanson, as he so often does, gives us an excellent and concise bird’s-eye view of where we stand with the intelligence community: [T]hose who are warning of Russian collusion efforts to warp an election now work for agencies that in the recent past were doing precisely what they now rightly accuse the Russians of doing. The damage that Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and others have done to the reputations of the agencies they ran will live on well after their tenures are over. For once, I think he underestimates the duration and intensity of the rottenness. It isn’t just...

    Under the Constitution, there are three branches of government. The FBI is not one of them. Instead, the FBI was created to assist the president in his job to enforce laws. Members of the FBI are called “agents” because of their agency relationship with the president. During World War II and then the Red Scare, the FBI's mission expanded to gather intelligence against spies. Here, too, the FBI was assisting the Commander in Chief. Even the word “intelligence” connotes this fact. The purpose was to help the president act intelligently against domestic threats. The FBI’s domestic intelligence gathering function caused...

    Evelyn Farkas, a former top Obama administration Defense Department official, has advocated for the intelligence community to consider compromising sources and methods when it comes to “saving American democracy.” “And I know that we have to preserve our sources and methods,” Farkas said, speaking about the U.S. intelligence community. “But at some point you know, sometimes maybe you have to actually compromise some kind of source or method if it comes down to saving American democracy.” Farkas was speaking last Thursday at a panel discussion on alleged Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, and was talking specifically about the intelligence community’s...

    The alleged manipulation of intelligence to downplay the strength of terror groups is far more extensive than previously reported and goes back to at least 2012, according to the Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee. The Defense Department inspector general and congressional investigators are reviewing claims that intelligence on the Islamic State was manipulated to present a more positive picture of the U.S. strategy's effectiveness. Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said these practices, though, extend to how intelligence on Al Qaeda was handled as well.[snip] While President Obama early last year, in an interview with The New Yorker, referred to...

    Gen. Michael Flynn, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, is highly critical of the Obama administration's foreign policy. The intelligence community's alleged intelligence fraud to benefit resident Barack Obama and his national security team began earlier than originally suspected. According to Fox News Channel's Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge on Saturday, the manipulation of the intelligence reported by several media outlets is suspected of beginning in 2012. At that time Obama was running for re-election against Republican Mitt Romney and the reports on Islamic terrorism were favorable for the incumbent Obama ...

    The Pentagon's Inspector General's Office has confirmed to ABC News that it is investigating allegations that U.S. Central Command's intelligence assessments of the progress of the war on ISIS was distorted to provide a more optimistic picture. Bridget Serchak, a spokesperson for the Department of Defense's Inspector General, said in a statement. "As has been previously reported, the Office of Inspector General Department of Defense has opened an investigation to address recent allegations concerning the processing of intelligence information by CENTCOM Intelligence Directorate."

    The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee isn't waiting for the Pentagon inspector general to decide whether the Obama administration pressured intelligence analysts to skew data to make the Islamic State and its allies seem weaker in their reports. Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, wrote Friday to Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Inspector General Jon Rymer demanding a briefing this week on the probe. "We are deeply concerned about these allegations and want to ensure that intelligence provided to key decision-makers properly reflect the expert analysis produced by our...

Bush’s administration. “The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming, and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy,” said Tyler Drumheller, a former CIA officer in Europe, in a 2006 interview with “60 Minutes.” He alleged that the White House “chose to ignore” information related to Iraq’s WMD program in the run-up to war that...

Former CIA deputy director Michael Morrell explained on "CBS This Morning" how serious these allegations are....
