Things That Make You Go Hmmm?

            "The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court was established in 1978 when Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is codified, as amended, at 50 U.S.C. ยงยง 1801-1885c. The Court sits in Washington D.C., and is composed of eleven federal district court judges who are designated by the Chief Justice of the United States.  Each judge serves for a maximum of seven years and their terms are staggered to ensure continuity on the Court.  By statute, the judges must be drawn from at least seven of the United States judicial circuits, and three of the judges must reside within 20 miles of the District of Columbia." 

            The hearings currently going on in Washington regarding the alleged collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians, alleged Russian influence or hacking of the Democratic National Committee, leaks of classified information and whether President Obama spied on candidate Trump are not serious investigations. It is a partisan dog and pony show designed to further the "Russia did it" narrative, demonize Vladimir Putin, absolve Clinton of any responsibility for her woeful election loss and make Trump look bad so public opinion can be shaped against Trump and pressure brought to bear to impeach him.
            The FBI Director and Director of the National Security Agency were called to Capital Hill to answer questions about investigations as to the degree if any Russia was involved influencing the 2016 presidential election whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians or Obama had Trump under surveillance. FBI Director James Comey stated he could not answer or speculate on many questions because there was an ongoing counterintelligence investigation going on. He did say there was no evidence that Trump was bugged by the Obama administration. Notice he wasn't asked if Trump could have been bugged by another government or entity.
            The thing that makes me go hmmm about all this is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) was established in 1978 and it is the official process whereby the government can gain permission to spy on a foreign person, entity or group. It is a known fact the FISA Court merely rubber stamps requests from US "intelligence" and law enforcement agencies. One of the concerns is the number of requests FISA gets and the type of data collected. FISA is supposed to be for surveillance of foreign persons but the US has had a sordid history of abuse by the FBI and CIA (COINTELPRO Operation Chaos), if you want to know just how foul and wicked our government has been read the Church Committee Reports It was because of the Church Committee findings the FISA Court was set up!!!
            By the way, where were the NSA and FBI who had global surveillance capabilities with their Echelon and Carnivore spy systems when 9-11 was being planned?! How come with all that taxpayer money that goes into the defense and intelligence deep state they didn't stop 9-11 even when the CIA Director told President Bu$h something was going down around September 11th? Makes you go hmmm?
            If Obama was spying or bugging Trump he wouldn't be that stupid to use the FBI NSA or CIA where he would leave a paper or E-mail trail back to himself or the White House. If he was spying on Trump and his people, Obama would probably do like Nixon did have some off USA book, off the grid operatives do it. There is speculation the Obama administration used the British version of the NSA what the UK calls Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) who collaborate and share information and technology with the US NSA and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, what in the spy business is known as Five Eyes Alliance, to do their dirty work.
             An arrangement like this makes more sense than using the FBI or CIA because the Five Eye Alliance routinely contact each other, coordinate and collaborate on global spying and surveillance. In fact there is speculation by several former CIA analysts that the abrupt resignation of the GCHQ Director Robert Hannigan in January of 2017 has something to do with GCHQ's involvement in the Flynn resignation and that could have been expanded to spy on Trump. And of course neither the GCHQ nor the British government are going to admit their complicity in this in fact they have already denied any involvement. Things that make you go hmmm?
            Anyway, enjoy the Congressional dog and pony show, but don't fall for the flim-flam.

Don't Fall for The Russki Ruse

                                       Don't Fall For The Russki Ruse

            In an effort to obfuscate Hillary Clinton's disappointing loss to Donald Trump the Democratic Party and the corporate media are attempting to lay the blame for the shocking smack down of their candidate on Russian president Vladimir Putin.  But the fact of the matter is the Democrats and media have presented no solid physical evidence whatsoever (only anonymous unnamed sources) to prove the Russians hacked the election or influenced its outcome.
            US voting machines cannot be hacked via the Internet and Russian agents did not infiltrate the state and local governments who had access to US voting machines in order to tamper with them! Don't fall for the flim flam. The globalist warmongers in the ruling class are apoplectic because Hillary lost the election. Clinton was their girl, the one they felt would carry on the Wall Street, Military Industrial Complex, endless wars and take their domestic Nazification program to the next level. So to absolve Clinton of any personal responsibility for her disastrous presidential campaign and election loss, they are blaming the Russians.
            The warmonger faction of the ruling class opposes Donald Trump not because of his ego or because he may be emotionally unstable, what modern president was more goofy than George W Bu$h (or Gerald Ford)? They oppose him because he is a D.C. outsider and a nationalist. As a candidate Trump called into question some of their most sacrosanct institutions and policies: NATO, the United Nations and the ongoing animus against Vladimir Putin and Russia.
            They cannot have anyone least of all a novice outsider thwarting their imperialist agenda. So they have unleashed their media hellhounds on Trump and his cabinet. They are trying to paint him as a traitor and puppet of Putin. They are attempting to kill two birds with one stone, undermine Trump and further demonize Putin and Russia.
             Putin has been in their crosshairs for a while but he really ignited their ire when he interfered with their plans to do to Syria what they did to Iraq and Libya, turn Syria into a failed vassal state. When Putin responded to Assad's request for help and his Russian air forces with the assistance of Iran and Hezbollah ground forces set back the Western supported Wahabbi fanatics who serve as the canon fodder in their effort to topple Assad, he really ticked them off!  With Putin and Co's help Assad has retaken much of the country. Putin's actions prevented another US/NATO invasion of a sovereign nation that is not a threat to the West.
            Also Putin and China's Xi Jinping have partnered to form BRICS (with Brazil, India and South Africa) to create a powerful trading block and an international bank that provides an alternative to US unipolar hegemony, the IMF, the World Bank and the Rothschild international usury system. The BRICS trading partnership is not buying or selling in US petrodollars which is a step towards dethroning the US dollar as the world's trading currency.
            The BRICS are signing mutually beneficial multilateral trade deals and agreeing to protect each other militarily, which is why the US is working feverishly to create problems in all the BRICS nations. They are pushing NATO to the borders of Russia, holding war games and the US was behind the coup in Ukraine. That would be like Russia or China placing troops on the Canadian border then destabilizing Mexico and putting an anti-US government in its place.
            The US is provoking China in the South China Sea and fomenting discord with China's Muslim population. The US is working to further undermine Brazil's faltering economy and they attempted a color revolution in South Africa two years ago but failed. BRICS is a major threat to the ruling oligarchs New World Order plans.
            Don't fall for the media's okey-doke. Do some research on the CIA's Operation Mockingbird and the FBI's COINTELPRO (which have now been legalized by the USA PATRIOT ACT and NDAA) and you will see just how ruthless our government is and has been. Don't fall for the Russki ruse.
