CIA to Trump: we have you in our gunsights

As with many things in politics, you have to possess the ability to read between the lines. A new story from the WaPo made me conduct such an examination.

First, the story from the WashingtonPost.com:

Intelligence chiefs briefed Trump and Obama on unconfirmed claims Russia has compromising information on president-elect

by Greg Miller

A classified report delivered to President Obama and President-elect Donald Trump last week included a section summarizing allegations that Russian intelligence services have compromising material and information on Trump’s personal life and finances, U.S. officials said.

The officials said that U.S. intelligence agencies have not corroborated those allegations, but believed that the sources involved in the reporting were credible enough to warrant inclusion of their claims in the highly classified report on Russian interference in the presidential campaign.

If true, the information suggests that Moscow has assembled damaging information — known in espionage circles by the Russian term “kompromat” — that conceivably could be used to coerce the next occupant of the White House. The claims were presented in a two-page summary attached to the full report, an addendum that also included allegations of ongoing contact between members of Trump’s inner circle and representatives of Moscow.

I recommend you read the rest of the article. The information being revealed between the lines of the story indicates, to me, a rocky road coming for President-elect Trump.

Some history, then a conclusion.

It’s no surprise that I remain skeptical concerning the “Russian hacking” of the American election, resulting in the defeat of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The Demorats tried throwing every excuse imaginable onto the political wall in order to see what would stick, to include recounts for Hillary Clinton under the pretext of their being for Jill Stein, talk radio and Fox News, the Electoral College, FBI Director James Comey, misogyny on the part of females (of all things), and fake news — to encompass the Drudge Report, which is nothing more than an aggregator of news and frequently features sites such as CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Baltimore Sun, Boston Globe, LA Times and more. If Drudge is “fake” then most certainly those other outlets are as well. They have also been saying “Russia Russia Russia” every day since November 8th.

The corollary glory of it all is that, particularly with regard to fake news, much of it has blossomed in the other direction. Time and again the true purveyors of fake news have been proven to be the American Media Maggots and not alternative news sources. The AMM have lost their “gatekeeper” status and desperately seek to lock it back up. They are quaking and frightened to their very core because they are losing control and cash.

That said, the theme that somehow Russia hacked the election and not only favored but enabled Donald Trump to win has its proponents and its detractors. Proponents would obviously include Hillary Clinton, Demorats and the American Media Maggots because, in their minds, it certainly had nothing to do with the quality of the candidate herself or the way the campaign was managed.

Detractors or skeptics would include myself and, well, a few other tens of thousands of persons.

First, I developed information from one source (corroborated by a similar intelligence source on the opposite coast) that the NSA was responsible (read here please) for the hacks, and this was supported by Judge Andrew Napolitano — from HRC’s mishandling of GAMMA class intelligence. Read this.

Then Julian Assange (he of Wikileaks creation) came out and straight-up stated that Russia was not connected to the hacking of the DNC and Podesta’s emails at all. Assange, being the recipient of the trove of materials should, one may conclude, know. The release of the information appealed to Assange because, after all, Hillary Rodham Clinton stated she would like to have had him killed with a drone strike. That would certainly seem sufficient to take HRC off Assange’s Christmas card list.

The FBI said the Russians were not responsible. Then Obama said the Russians were not responsible. A UK diplomat said it wasn’t the Russians. Who to believe?

Now they are responsible. The party line is that “17 intelligence agencies say Russia was the source.” With, again, little or no clear evidence to back up the claims.

There was another person along the way with a healthy skepticism about the Russians being involved in the DNC hack and the hacking of the US presidential election. Donald Trump.

The meme is that the CIA, the DNI and the rest of the US Intelligence Community would not politicize intelligence except that, well, yes they would. And have. All the time. This is not finger-pointing at the line-level agents, processors or analysts. This is finger-pointing at the upper echelons of the Intelligence Community. As in: they decide what information to release to those who base policy and decisions upon intelligence take.

It’s no secret that Donald Trump has angered the lofty halls of the US Intelligence Community. They don’t care to have their character or their veracity questioned or second-guessed.

So Tuesday’s WaPo article — which contained, they admit, much speculation and little fact, could be a cautionary tale, a little sub-frequency IC message to President-elect Donald Trump: you’re in our gunsights.

One has to think that the source of whatever information “Russia may possess” about Trump personally could be the USIC itself.

Charles Krauthammer said on Tuesday:

“When you get these spy-vs-spy leaks, you can’t believe anybody because they’re all lying and that’s what they do for a living, so you never know which side is lying. But I think that the very fact this story has surfaced, is a way for the CIA to be telling Trump: you mess with us, we have a lot of information we can mess with you.”

Then, for God’s sake, there is this.

The bottom line is: there are so many political machinations on so many levels for so many mixed and cross-purposed reasons that it is all very clear.

As clear as mud.

Still and all: Donald Trump, beware.

81 year old California Senator puts American lives in jeopardy around the world: interrogation report released

CIA Political FootballDiane Feinstein Twit From BZProving that Diane Feinstein couldn’t care less about your sons or your daughters, serving in the military around the world.

Publicizing these details makes no sense.  No other country would even consider doing this: costing lives of your nationals.

Even John Kerry called up DiFi and said, “please don’t do this.”

This NOT a bi-partisan document or a bi-partisan release.  This is a last-gasp for attention by a doddering senator.  This will become nothing but propaganda fodder and will hurt our ability to acquire cooperation from other nations.  This will become a recruiting tool for terrorists.  These details do nothing but inflame Jihadists.  They harm national security interests.

Of what do I refer?  The report on enhanced interrogation by the US, released by the outgoing Chairman on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.  Are the Demorats out to smear the CIA and to dissuade/make a head-fake on other topics?  Like: Gruber’s testimony today?

The Demorats are doing nothing but attempting to smear where they can, because they have a Loser President and are trying to buttress “their” candidate for 2016, Hillary Rodham Clinton.  This is also their last chance slam on Bush before the transition to a GOP majority in the Senate.

This is nothing more than a deeply inflammatory report released whilst our young men and women, our troops, are physically in harm’s way around the globe.  This isn’t a matter of criminality, it’s a matter of US policy at the time.  There was Congressional blessing at the time and Congressional oversight.

McCaskill: CIA report ‘would never happen in North Korea or China’

 by Martin Matishak

The release of a report on CIA enhanced interrogations techniques “would never happen” in less open and accountable nations, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said on Monday.
 
The assessment, which could be released as soon as Monday, “exposes what the world already knows, and that is that the United States engaged in torture,” McCaskill said during an interview with CBS.

“But my feeling about this is that this is a gut-check moment for our democracy. The world knows we tortured. But does the world know yet that we’ll hold up our values and hold our government accountable?” she said.
 
McCaskill added that the report “would never happen in North Korea or China or Russia. But in the United States, we hold our government accountable. And I think that process is so important, so fundamental to our democracy that it’s essential that this report comes out.”

The report is the result of a probe by the Senate Intelligence Committee into the CIA’s enhanced interrogations during the George W. Bush administration.

Officials fear torture report could spark violence

by Erin Kelly

WASHINGTON — Federal officials braced for possible violence at U.S. facilities around the world as senators prepared to release a report Tuesday detailing the CIA’s torture of suspected terrorists in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

“There are some indications that the release of the report could lead to a greater risk that is posed to U.S. facilities and individuals all around the world,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday. “So the administration has taken the prudent steps to ensure that the proper security precautions are in place at U.S. facilities around the globe.”

The Intelligence Committee is expected to release Tuesday a 500-page summary of a 6,200-page report on the the CIA’s use of waterboarding, sleep deprivation, humiliation and other “enhanced interrogation techniques” against al-Qaeda prisoners during the George W. Bush administration.

Diane Feinstein is Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.  She is in charge.  She determined if the report was released or not.  The report is here.

This is nothing but vengeance by an aging, doddering and outgoing 81-year-old US Senator.  Call her at (202) 224-3841, contact her on Twitter @SenFeinstein, or e-mail her.

Let her know that you are less than pleased with the release of the enhanced interrogations report.

She said: “Releasing this report is an important step to restoring our values and showing the world that we are a just society.”  It is also your final “getback” at Bush and the GOP.  What was the first thing your own Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel did in anticipation of the report’s release?  That’s correct, he put the US military on general alert, knowing the release would do nothing but stir the Middle East and terrorists.

Thanks so kindly, Feinstein.

P.S.

Overlooked in the “torture” report: how many terrorists were forced to burn alive, jump to their deaths, beheaded, received clitorectomies, or had hands severed from arms?  Right.  None.

 

Demorats say: this is “an election about nothing” — when instead it’s an election about EVERYTHING

[Transparency, no more secrecy. Just the beginning of the lies. Ask our AMM journalists about Mr Obama’s transparency and that of the Spite House.]

The Demorats do in fact say this midterm is “an election about nothing.”

There is nothing more insulting and arrogant than that phrase.

I’d say this election is, oh yes, about everything.  Everything “progressive” and Leftist and Democrat-oriented in nature.

Dan Balz says:

Today, Obama looks more like Bush of 2006, when Democrats took back the House: The numbers for Obama are almost identical overall, and the breakdowns by party are as well.

Demorats insist all is well; Obama is in power, the federal government needs to take care of you, you poor ignorant and unwashed masses. All is well, the economy has never been stronger, our social structure has never been more tolerant and forgiving, we are more adored and respected internationally than ever, because we support our friends and eschew our enemies.

Pay no attention to Benghazi, to Fast and Furious, to the IRS, to the NSA, to the CIA, to the cultural crafting and sculpting of our nation, and abuse of our military and our veterans.  Pay no attention to the actions of Hillary Clinton, Pelosi, Napolitano, Blum, Lerner.

Pay no attention to the IRS auditing of Dr Ben Carson and various TEA Party organizations.  The lies of John Koskines and Lois Lerner.

Pay no attention to the devastating impact of ObamaKare and the fact that Mr Obama nakedly LIED about its affects on your own doctor and your health:

But that was only one of many lies from Mr Obama and his minions.  We have CIA Director John Brennan who LIED time and again — but who only became an issue when the CIA began tapping the computers of DC politicians:  Things were bad only when their ox was gored.

Pay no attention to the initial LIES of Hillary Clinton involving the assault on the Benghazi consulate — being the result of a lame video created by a federal parolee — that in fact had NO bearing on the killing of four United States citizens.  Pay no attention to the callous and arrogant disregard that Hillary Clinton had for said killings:

Pay no attention to the US Debt Clock, and the fact that Mr Obama has racked up more debt than all prior presidents combined, to the tune of $17,906,300,000,000.  With a population of 320 million persons, that puts each individual’s unfunded liability at $385,579.49 — for a few minutes.  Then it goes up again.

Pay no attention to the fact the Mr Obama was responsible for “Cash for Clunkers” which failed (costing much more than it purported to save), millions to Solyndra (which failed), millions to so-called “green energy” which failed.  Pay no attention to the fact that Mr Obama himself decided which automakers would succeed or fail, was responsible for the untold number of car dealerships closing and the laying-off of employees who worked (past tense) there.

People forget that Obama sent actual armed agents to raid the factory of Gibson Guitars, because of limp-wristed and specious allegations about the wood they were using in their instruments.  Obama’s NLRB didn’t want Boeing to open a factory in South Carolina because it was a “right to work” state and didn’t mandate employees to be unionized, so they refused to allow Boeing to move.  The UAW made off like — literally — bandits when Obama rigged the bankruptcy hearings of Chrysler and GM when bondholders and creditors were kicked aside.  Ford, you recall, didn’t take government bailout cash.

The BP oil spill occurred because EPA and environmental regulations mandate that drilling rigs be located so far from our shores; the further from shore, the deeper the drilling and the more unstable and difficult the drilling and the platform.  Don’t forget, Obama sent millions of dollars to Brazil in order for them to drill off their shores.  Drill of our own shores, closer? No way.

Let’s continue to talk about oil.  Mr Obama clearly embraces Blood Oil and Conflict Oil, just as he eschews Conflict Diamonds or Blood Diamonds.  No matter that untold persons are killed in the Middle East because of the issue of oil.  We could be well on our way to energy independence in an agreement with Canada involving the Keystone XL pipeline but, no, Mr Obama prefers to limit our own drilling and fracking so that we are dependent on external oil sources.  This makes no sense whatsoever.

Obama Media LapdogAll during this time, however, according to the American Media Maggot lapdogs, Mr Obama can do little if anything wrong.  The AMM continue to wear their Official Obaka Blinders gift set.

Mr Obama has set some remarkable precedent by writing a host of Executive Orders that purposely have bypassed the US Congress because he perceives they are not lining up appropriately for his wishes.  His has become an Imperial Presidency that minds not ruling by fiat.

Obama Imperial Congress Won't ActIn that vein, His Imperial Highness has deigned that illegal immigrants will be granted roughly blanket amnesty, moving this country from a “nation of laws” into the “nation of the lawless” category.  Numerous border Sheriffs and Chiefs have said that, if amnesty is granted, the floodgates will be opened and there will be no turning off the spigot.

My department, one week ago, was impacted directly by our porous borders, when an illegal Mexican working for the Sinaloa Cartel killed Deputy Danny Oliver and, a short time later, Placer County Detective Michael Davis.

Pay no attention to the thousands and thousands of illegal immigrant South American children imported into this country carrying diseases that — oh no! — brought disease to our own children, to include the enterovirus, according to the CDC.  Thank you kindly, Mr Obama, for ensuring our borders continue to be porous.  We need more Mexican criminals and imported diseases we haven’t seen for years.

Let us not forget Mr Obama’s smooth tactical move in releasing five Guantanamo terrorist leaders in exchange for the absconding traitor Bowe Bergdahl.  Brilliant, that.

The VA absolutely fell apart under Mr Obama, resulting in the forced resignation of General John Shinseki.  Nicely monitored, sir; you continue to show you couldn’t care less about our military personnel on duty, and their care after service.

Let’s not forget about the truthful, honest and humble Kathleen Sebelius, whose selling of ObakaKare was in conflict with her simultaneously tasked with enforcing it.  An abomination of arrogance and incompetency.  Goodbye, bitch.  Write when you find work.

At this point, do we begin to see some running memes yet, to include rampant arrogance, incompetence, unchecked conceit, unbridled egos, and the NPDNarcissist Personality Disorder — of Barack Hussein Obama?

Who listened to the private phone calls of Fox News reporter James Rosen under Obama?  Some Republican?

The EPA under Director Lisa Jackson harassed businesses.  Anyone remember or care?

Let us not forget: most everything done under Obama simply fails.  Despite Mr Obama being in control of the Spite House Bully Pulpit, the American Media Maggots and the US Senate.  How is this possible?

Let us not forget: Mr Obama believed that the Fort Hood Shooting was nothing more than an itty-bitty bit of occasional workplace violence.  “Allahu Akhbar” just doesn’t factor, as exclaimed by Nidal.  Likewise the Oklahoma beheading of a female employee by an Islamist trying to convert fellow employees is simply another untidy bit of workplace violence.  Vaughn, CEO of the business, according to Obama, was out-of-order in shooting at the Muslim.  Clearly, Vaughn was a Religionist and hates Muslims.

Healthcare.gov?  The million-dollar website that never worked?  Fabulous, that.

Let’s not forget Obama’s sotto voce to Russia’s Medvedev:

Further, “you didn’t build that.”

At least Hillary Clinton is in keeping with Barack Hussein Obama.  Businesses and corporations don’t create jobs.

Lets examine, photographically, some of the other so-called “highlights” of Demorat control these past years under Mr Obama.  Be warned: the truth isn’t pretty.

US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Benghazi, LibyaChristopher Stevens.

Illegal InvadersGrateful Mexicans.

Mex Cartels 2What Mr Obama wants to actively import into the United States: Mexican Cartel activity.

Muslim Nurse in the UKAnd, of course, women in full BeeKeeper costumes.

Yes, this election isn’t about nothing.  It’s about everything.

Mr Obama recently said of these elections: “Now, I am not on the ballot this fall . . . but make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot — every single one of them.”

And in this case, he is precisely correct.

Get out, vote, and make that precisely so.

Attorney for Whistleblower: 400 US Missiles Stolen in Benghazi

Clinton & Benghazi Lies

From Breitbart.com:

On August 12, Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.’s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were “diverted to Libya” and ended up being stolen and falling into “the hands of some very ugly people.”

DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles.”

He claimed his information “comes from a former intelligence official who stayed in constant contact with people in the special ops and intelligence community.” He said the biggest concern right now is finding those missiles before they can be put to use. “They are worried, specifically according to these sources, about an attempt to shoot down an airliner,” he claimed.

Is this the unspoken nasty secret surrounding Benghazi and the reason the current administration thinks those four deaths mean nothing?  And why they’ll do anything to cover it up and minimize it to their best extent?

Perhaps this paragraph will shed some light:

Months earlier, following then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s February 7 testimony on Capitol Hill about the Benghazi attacks, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested that one of the causes behind the terrorist attack “may have been that there was a gun running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya and going to Turkey and [distributing] arms to the [Syrian] rebels.”

As may perhaps my previous posts here and here and here and here.

But no one seems to care.

Which tells me one thing: never work for the federal government.  Your death means nothing.
