  • Breaking Norms And Precedent, Biden Attempts To Purge Career Intelligence Official

    The Federalist ^ | January 22, 2021 | Mollie Hemmingway
    Pelosi, Schiff, and Biden have politicized a career intelligence community position by demanding the removal of a national security professional.Hours after President Joe Biden delivered his inaugural address promising to bring unity and healing to the country, his administration began a politically charged attack on a highly respected, newly appointed career intelligence official over fears he would be insufficiently loyal to Democratic partisans. The attempted purge has thus far followed the playbook publicly laid out by top Democrats and their left-wing media enablers. In a stunning violation of precedent, Biden’s National Security Agency (NSA) placed General Counsel Michael J. Ellis...

    The Trump-installed General Counsel of the National Security Agency has been put on administrative leave a day after starting the role, due to a Department of Defense inspector general probe, CNN reported. Michael Ellis's installation just before President Joe Biden took office garnered criticism... ...Ellis's appointment came shortly after President-elect Joe Biden was projected to win the 2020 election in November. During that same month, the Washington Post reported that Democratic Sens. Mark Warner and Jack Reed asked the Pentagon's inspector general to investigate Ellis's appointment on the grounds of "improper political influence." "...press accounts of White House involvement create...
  • Pelosi Panicking: Sends Letter to Acting Defense Secretary Miller Attempting to Halt New NSA General, Saying “It Is Highly Irregular and Highly Suspect”

    Pelosi has sent a letter to Acting Defense Secretary Christopher C. Miller. Why? She is attempting to block the installation of a new NSA Counsel candidate appointed by President Trump. It is well known that the NSA’s new top lawyer is a Trump loyalist. Is that why Pelosi is worried? Specifically, she claims that the move is “highly suspect” since there are apparently only 2 days left in President Trump’s time in the White House. Pelosi claims that this move “is highly irregular and highly suspect.” Ummm… like impeaching an outgoing President just days before his term ends? Pelosi published...
  • Acting defense secretary orders NSA director to immediately install former GOP operative as the agency’s top lawyer

    Acting defense secretary Christopher C. Miller ordered the director of the National Security Agency to install on Saturday a former GOP political operative as the NSA’s top lawyer, according to four individuals familiar with the matter. The move is troubling, coming as it does four days before President Trump leaves office and the Biden administration takes over, former U.S. officials said. The move makes it more difficult for the Biden administration to immediately replace him, the former officials said. “An 11th-hour move like this and a directive from the acting secretary of defense is overwhelmingly strong evidence of irregularity,” Hennessey...

    President-elect Joe Biden announced Tuesday he was nominating Samantha Power, a former Obama administration official and key unmasker of Trump campaign staffers, to a top position in his incoming administration. “Ambassador Samantha Power is a world-renowned voice of conscience and moral clarity — challenging and rallying the international community to stand up for the dignity and humanity of all people,” Biden said in a statement. “As USAID Administrator, she’ll be a powerful force for principled American engagement.”

    NSA uses towering, windowless skyscrapers, and fortress-like concrete structures that were built to withstand earthquakes and even nuclear attacks. Thousands of people pass by the buildings each day and rarely give them a second glance because their function is not publicly known. They are an integral part of one of the world’s largest telecommunications networks – and they are also linked to a controversial National Security Agency surveillance program. Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. In each of these cities, The Intercept has identified an AT&T facility containing networking equipment that transports...

    The Trump administration has refused to allow members of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team to meet with officials at U.S. intelligence agencies that are controlled by the Pentagon, undermining prospects for a smooth transfer of power, current and former U.S. officials said. The officials said the Biden team has not been able to engage with leaders at the National Security Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency and other military-run spy services with classified budgets and global espionage platforms. The Defense Department rejected or did not approve requests from the Biden team this week, the officials said, despite a General Services Administration...

    China says the tirades of US National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien ‘are full of Cold War mentality’ in a bid ‘to seek the selfish interests of the US’ China accused US National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien of fueling tensions in the region Monday, November 23, as the American official capped his recent trips to Vietnam and the Philippines. Chinese officials slammed O’Brien, in particular, for making “unreasonable remarks” on the South China Sea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan – hot button issues for Beijing as it competes with Washington for dominance in the Indo-Pacific region. It was in the Philippines, America’s...
  • US should encourage China's rise, Biden national security pick Jake Sullivan says

    President-Elect Joe Biden announced additional nominations to his cabinet on Monday, including a National Security Adviser who has advocated for supporting China’s “rise” in the past. Jake Sullivan has been tapped to fill the role, after previously advising Biden when he served as vice president in the Obama administration. Sullivan also worked for Hillary Clinton when she served as Secretary of State. Sullivan could bring in a fresh perspective to relations with China when compared with the Trump administration if his past comments are an indication. During a lecture he delivered on behalf of the Lowy Institute in 2017, Sullivan...

    This is the sort of story you shouldn’t watch just before turning in for the night. Documents gone missing in mid-stream - how did that happen? While it was clear this was a targeted theft I, like the “major overnight shipper,” had no clue how it was pulled off. As often happens in these circumstances, Sundance has a theory, apparently based on personal experience.  So here’s what I think took place. The package, likely a Fed-X delivery, was intercepted by FBI agents using mechanisms for tracking and surveillance that open targeting through portals connected to DHS. As an outcome of the...

    Earlier this week the National Security Agency released a cybersecurity advisory which focused on attempts of Chinese state-backed hackers to gain access to intellectual property such as coronavirus research or advanced technologies, or political and military information. Tuesday's NSA advisory identified "vulnerabilities" in US systems that have been “recently leveraged, or scanned-for, by Chinese state-sponsored cyber actors” — for example bugs in software like Microsoft Windows or Citrix Systems. But now China’s Foreign Ministry has slammed the NSA report, calling out the spy agency's 'hypocrisy' and shining a light on vast US domestic surveillance exposed years ago by Edward...

    One privacy activist responded: “This decision will be added to the timelines of the most significant expansions of domestic surveillance in the modern era.” WITH ONLY DAYS until Donald Trump takes office, the Obama administration on Thursday announced new rules that will let the NSA share vast amounts of private data gathered without warrant, court orders or congressional authorization with 16 other agencies, including the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Department of Homeland Security. The new rules allow employees doing intelligence work for those agencies to sift through raw data collected under a broad, Reagan-era executive order that...
