Intro posted March 16, 2017

I found an awesome article at CharismaMag.com warning of the dangers of “Progressive” Christianity particularly among those ministries that describe themselves as Evangelical. In essence, the warning is the Progressive Evangelicals are diluting Christian Morality with feel-good secular sensualism and calling it in effect contemporary morality that fits the times we live in.

 

Here is the Biblical warning that I believe is a good introduction to the Charisma article by Chelsen Vicari:

 

Matthew 24: 23-26, 37-39; 2 Peter 2: 1-5, 9-10, 12-16 (NKJV):

 

Matthew

 

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

 

26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.

 

37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

 

2 Peter

 

Destructive Doctrines

 

But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does[a] not slumber.

 

Doom of False Teachers

 

For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly;

 

then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,

 

Depravity of False Teachers

 

12 But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, 13 and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. 15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, ***following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet. (Editor’s bold text)

 

*** Blog Editor it is important to recognize what the sin of Balaam is:

 

Nevertheless I have a few things against you, for you have there those who hold to the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication… (Rev 2:14)

 
By the end of the fourth ‘parable’ of Balaam, both he and Balak the king were fully aware of God’s purposes for Israel.  The utter impossibility of using any kind of divination against Israel was now obvious to the badly shaken king and to the seer also – whose eyes God had opened.

 

 

But Balak and Balaam each worshipped their own gods. Balak’s god had already proven impotent, unable to stop the Israelite advance, nor to even allow them to be cursed. Balaam’s gods were money, prestige and position.  He would not defect from them even in the face of the power of the God of Israel!

 

It would be a long trip home for Balaam, this time he would not be accompanied by the Arab nobles who had crossed the four hundred mile desert twice previously to court him. There would be lots of time to think though. But there would be no reward, no honor nor prestige for him, he had failed to successfully overcome Genesis 12:3, he simply couldn’t curse Israel. The God of Israel could not be induced to turn against them.

 

 

Balak and Balaam met again apparently, and organized a Pagan festival at Baal Peor, that is “Lord of the Opening”, within range of the encamped children of Israel. Paganism was and is a sensual affair – altars to Baal were set up, choice offerings of beef were set upon the grills, sensual music was conducted and the wives, daughters and virgins of Midian and Moab were presented as sacred prostitutes to any and all who were drawn to the party.

 

And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. And they called the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people did eat and bowed down. And Israel joined herself to Baal Peor, and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel. (Numbers 25:1-3)

 

To the ones who left the camp of Israel, following the siren sound of the pagan music, the festival to Baal could be rationalized as just a sensual experience and nothing more. The aroma of the choice steaks cooking on the altars of Baal, the pleasures of the wine and women of Midian was all just a little relief from the monotony of a lifetime in the desert eating manna. We don’t really believe in Baal, we just need to blow off a little steam.

 

But to God these experiences represented so much more. ISRAEL HAS JOINED HERSELF TO BAAL PEOR, she has yoked herself to an alien god, she has played the harlot! So it is today that too often even a confessing Christian can also rationalize that compromise with fornication, pornography, worldliness and false religion are meaningless when it isn’t. Perhaps a similar soul killing plague is broken out among us also, and we just don’t realize it!

 

When a plague broke out in the camp of Israel, it almost looked as though Balaam’s teaching would obtain the intended result. God had not turned against Israel, but by Balaam’s counsel, Israel had turned against God, and would now pay the price of judgment against them.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Balaam: The Doctrine of Balaam Part 5; By Pastor Bill Randles; Believers in Grace Ministries; 6/20/10)

 

Enticing teaching of the Left is the very moral dilution that explains the general destruction of the Christian foundations that have made America that one time shining light on a hill. America’s beacon of righteousness is diminished and we can look at the Secular Humanist agenda that has been filtered down from Left Wing Activist Courts, the Democratic Party and most recently former President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

AND NOW, Chelsen Vicari’s waring on the effects of Progressive Christianity.

Here’s How the New Christian Left Is Twisting the Gospel

 

By CHELSEN VICARI

Couple of Christian Millennials – © Istockphoto/Thomas_EyeDesign

 

Peek behind the curtain of some “progressive” or “hip” evangelical churches, past the savvy technology and secular music, and you will find more than just a contemporary worship service. You’ll find faith leaders encouraging young evangelicals to trade in their Christian convictions for a gospel filled with compromise. They’re slowly attempting to give evangelicalism an “update”—and the change is not for the good.

 

It’s painful for me to admit, but we can no longer rest carefree in our evangelical identity—because it is changing. No doubt you have seen the headlines declaring that evangelicalism is doomed because evangelical kids are leaving the faith. It is no secret that there is an expanding gulf between traditional Christian teachings and contemporary moral values. But the sad truth is that the ideological gulf between America’s evangelical grown-ups and their kids, aka the millennials, seems to be widening too.

 

Somehow the blame for this chasm is being heaped on traditional churches. They are accused of having too many rules as well as being homophobic and bigoted. Yes, we’ve heard those false claims from popular culture in its desperate attempt to keep Christianity imprisoned within the sanctuary walls. But now popular culture is being aided by Christ-professing bedfellows whose message to “coexist,” “tolerate” and “keep out of it” is more marketable to the rising generation of evangelicals.

 

The seasoned Christian soldiers are noticing these distortions of the gospel. But for young evangelicals, the spiritual haze is harder to wade through. Desperate for acceptance in a fallen world, many young evangelicals (and some older ones) choose not to take Christ out of the chapel, and so they are unwittingly killing the church’s public witness. In this uphill cultural battle, mired by scare tactics and fear, three types of evangelical Christians are emerging:

 

  • Couch-potato Christians:These Christians adapt to the culture by staying silent on the tough culture-and-faith discussions. Typically, this group will downplay God’s absolute truths by promoting the illusion that neutrality was Jesus’ preferred method of evangelism.

 

  • Cafeteria-style Christians:This group picks and chooses which Scripture passages to live by, opting for the ones that best seem to jive with culture. Typically, they focus solely on the “nice” parts of the gospel while simultaneously and intentionally minimizing sin, hell, repentance and transformation.

 

  • Convictional Christians:In the face of the culture’s harsh admonitions, these evangelicals refuse to be silent. Mimicking Jesus, they compassionately talk about love and grace while also sharing with their neighbors the need to recognize and turn from sin.

 

I know about these three types of Christians because at one time or another, I have fallen into each of these three categories. My parents will tell you that even though I was raised in church, I morphed into a full-fledged feminist, told my parents they were ignorant for not endorsing homosexuality and bought into the distorted social justice rhetoric that confuses caring for the poor with advancing socialist or big government systems and demonizing the United States for its free-market system.

 

I’m not ashamed to share my story because my experiences and those of my fellow bold evangelicals are a testimony of God’s awesome, transforming power. Being countercultural for Christ isn’t easy. What does the Great Commission say? Jesus commanded us to go, “teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:20a).

 

Where Did We Go Wrong?

 

I see so many parents scratching their heads trying to figure out where they went wrong with young evangelicals. Following the instructions of Proverbs 22:6—”Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it”—many evangelical parents took their children to church and prayed with them every night before bed. Yet the values those children now hold dear do not reflect the traditional teachings of Jesus.

 

To be perfectly clear, I want to let you know up front that this isn’t a parenting how-to guide that, if followed, will lead your loved ones to salvation. Instead, what I can offer you is a glimpse into the world of a 20-something who sees thousands of young evangelicals being spiritually and emotionally targeted on Christian university campuses, in college ministries and at churches nationwide by a growing liberal movement cloaked in Christianity.

 

Research tells us evangelicals are drifting further away from the orthodox truths their parents and grandparents held dear.

 

Our churches have rarely—if ever—faced the exodus we are seeing today. This will have a direct effect on the spiritual and moral values that will shape the nation in the coming years. That is why it is urgent that concerned Christians start acting now before the situation gets worse.

 

The Collision of Faith and Culture

 

Faith and culture will continue to collide in America. The culture wars, the growth of family, the success of missions, the prosperity of our great nation—the future rests on millennial evangelicals’ worldview. And that is cause for concern, because something has gone wrong with young evangelicals’ theology.

 

The millennial generation’s susceptibility to “feel-good” doctrine is playing a big part in America’s moral decline. Millennials’ religious practices depend largely on how the actions make us and others feel, whether the activities are biblical or not. For example, we only attend churches that leave us feeling good about our lifestyle choices, even if those choices conflict with God’s clear commandments. We dismiss old hymns that focus on God’s transforming salvation, love and mercy and opt for “Jesus is your boyfriend” songs. Or we contribute to nonprofits that exploit and misuse terms such as justice, oppressed and inequality because tweaking the language makes us feel more neutral, less confrontational.

 

Popular liberal evangelical writers and preachers tell young evangelicals that if they accept abortion and same-sex marriage, then the media, academia and Hollywood will finally accept Christians. Out of fear of being falsely dubbed “intolerant” or “uncompassionate,” many young Christians are buying into theological falsehoods. Instead of standing up as a voice for the innocent unborn or marriage as God intended, millennials are forgoing the authority of Scripture and embracing a couch potato, cafeteria-style Christianity, all in the name of tolerance.

 

This contemporary mindset is what Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian whose Christian convictions put him at odds with the Nazis and cost him his life, called “cheap grace.” In his book The Cost of Discipleship Bonhoeffer wrote: “Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession, absolution without personal confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.”

 

Right now, cheap grace theology is proliferating around evangelical Bible colleges, seminaries and Christian ministries.

 

Christian Doctrine Hijacked

 

It is not that millennial evangelicals were not taken to church by their parents. It is that their training has been hijacked by ineffective and sometimes intentionally distorted doctrine.

 

As constant and pervasive as the attacks on Christianity are at public universities, it is important to remember that millennials’ worldviews do not start taking shape after they move out of their parents’ houses. Their understanding of Jesus’ teachings and cultural convictions begins to form while they are still at home and under the influence of their local church.

 

What I hope and pray evangelical parents and leaders come to realize is that the church has been too trusting. In our jam-packed lifestyles, parents have treated Sunday school as they do softball or ballet class—drop off the kids for an hour, then pick them up and hope they learned something.

 

Early on in my Sunday school teaching days, my co-teacher and I followed the curriculum pretty narrowly, the exception being that my co-teacher had an outstanding knowledge of biblical history that he imparted to the kids.

 

We taught all about Jesus’ birth, resurrection and saving grace. Thinking the fluffy kids ministry curriculum covered all of the necessary bases, I felt confident these kids had a firm grasp on their Christian worldview. Boy, was I wrong!

 

One day my co-teacher and I decided to play “True or False.” We casually went down a list of worldview questions with our class, sure that our little evangelicals would nail every question correctly.

 

No. 1: Jesus is God. “True.” Great job.

 

No. 2: Jesus sinned. “False.” Bingo!

 

No. 3: Jesus is one of many ways to heaven. “True.” What?!

 

Shocked is the only way to describe how I felt. Hadn’t they been listening to us? When I asked who taught them that, one girl said, “Coexist.” Yes, these young evangelicals had been listening to their Sunday school teachers and their parents, but they had also been listening to their public school teachers, TV celebrities and rock stars.

 

Youth ministers, volunteer leaders and pastors also have to start preparing these kids to deal with the very real hostility that faces young evangelicals.

 

If we never talk about abortion in church, how can we expect the rising evangelical girl to calmly explain the option of adoption to her frightened best friend who just admitted she is pregnant?

 

What will surprise you is how much young evangelicals actually crave honest discussions about abortion, sexuality, sexual exploitation, feminism and radical Islam. My friend and Evangelical Action adviser Richmond Trotter has two non-negotiable topics when addressing youth: creation and life. Having volunteered in church youth ministry since 1996, Richmond is not afraid to have serious discussions about what Scripture says about abortion, evolution and homosexuality. Make no mistake: The trend away from biblical truth is not concentrated in the hipster city limits. It is unfolding in the crevices of America’s plains, hills, mountains and swamplands. All across this nation, “old-fashioned” conservative evangelicalism is being traded in for a bright and shiny, mediocre Christianity.

 

If America’s evangelicals disengage from the public square and fail to engage the rising generation of Christian leaders, then we risk losing our public voice, then our religious liberty, then liberty altogether.

 

What Happened to the Religious Right?

 

The last several decades witnessed tremendous evangelical influence in the United States. Leaders such as Billy Graham, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Tim and Beverly LaHaye, Paige and Dorothy Patterson, James Dobson and James and Betty Robison made a bold impact on America’s families, churches and government. Now that those few leaders are aging or retiring, or have died, there are very few traditional evangelical leaders left holding the torch, and even fewer candidates to whom they can pass it.

 

But religious convictions in America are not on the verge of disappearance just yet. There is still hope. In the book God Is Alive and Well: The Future of Religion in America, Gallup Inc. Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport opines: “Christianity will prevail in the U.S. America will remain very much a Christian nation in the decades ahead, albeit less so than in the past because of an increase in Americans who don’t have a religious identity.”

 

Heed the Warning Signs

 

Evangelicals and culture warriors in the U.S. do not have to look far to discover what happens when Christian denominations give up on their traditional convictions and teachings. All we have to do is look at the dwindling memberships of mainline Protestant denominations.

 

In order to safeguard the trajectory of young evangelicals, we must uphold the authoritative Word of God. It is imperative that those in a position to influence millennials have transparent and honest discussions about the culture wars in which evangelical youth are already engaging. Otherwise they will be silent and accepting in the face of persecution and false doctrine.

 

The importance of arming the next generation of evangelicals cannot be overstated. If we continue to follow the example of mainline Protestants, evangelicalism will have a gloomy future. We must offer sorely needed leadership, but before we can do that, we need to know exactly whom and what we are up against.

An Enemy Within Allied With The Seditious Left

The Realistic Observer

 

The enemies of freedom never sleep. They seek to dominate and enslave those whom they can conquer and to eliminate those who resist. Unfortunately, this pattern has been an integral part of recorded history from ancient to modern.

Warfare will never stop. Idealists have dreams of a perfect world in which all of humanity will be peaceful, prosperous and loving. They are susceptible to the siren song of collectivism know as Marxism, Communism, and Progressivism— now also known as Globalism.

The drivers of these totalitarian forces have their own motivations, and there has been much discussion about the goal of the Elites and Globalists.

They have many tools with which to work. Weakening a culture in general via attacking its social institutions is the work of the enemy within. Alliance with a foreign entity is another.

A brief description of the “alliance” between the Left And Islam:

Which brings us to Islamism. Jihad has many forms and stages. At the end of this post is a series links, (provided for reader convenience) via The Clarion Project discussing Jihad.

There is also a link, via Dr. Bill Warner, for those who would like to become activists but may not know where to go.

Initial excerpts from various posts below discuss Jihad in Europe and the U.S.

Well, Erdogan is completely out of the closet:
Muslims RIOT after Amsterdam thwarts Turkish ministers’ plans to bring violent campaigns to Holland, Turkey threatens HARSH retaliation
 

Geert Wilders was right — about everything.

Muslims are rioting in Holland because the Dutch government barred Turkish political parties from campaigning in Holland. The action was taken in an effort to avoid violent campaign “demos” and import divisions into the Turkish Muslim community in Holland. Prime Minister Rutte’s preventative actions were for naught. Muslims rioted anyway. Turkish President Erdogan is looking to the large number of Turkish migrants living in Europe, especially in Germany and the Netherlands, to help clinch victory next month in a referendum that would give the would-be caliph sweeping new powers.


Turkey has told the Netherlands it will retaliate in the “harshest ways” after
Turkish ministers were barred from speaking in Rotterdam in a row over Ankara’s political campaigning among Turkish emigres.
Will Erdogan unleash another migrant invasion? continue

Will such threats be leveled against America if we refuse to take in our UN dictated “quota” of refugees?
Turkey Again Threatens to Flood Europe with Refugees Unless Turks Get Visa-Free Travel in Europe

Blackmail from a country that is no friend or ally of the U.S., Europe or the West in general. This amounts to an ultimatum: let in huge numbers of “refugees” who will enable jihad attacks and foster the Islamization of Europe, or allow Turks visa-free travel, which would enable jihad attacks and foster the Islamization of Europe. Erdogan’s agenda should be clear to everyone who is not an EU functionary. continue

In the name of Islam:
Another Axe on Islam’s Crazy Train

In a Dusseldorf train station, Fatmir, a Muslim refugee from Kosovo, went on the attack with an axe. His victims included several adults and a 13-year-old girl. 

The authorities are blaming his attack on that familiar standby; drug and psychological problems…


But there appears to be a species of psychological problems unique to Muslims which causes them to head to the nearest train station with an axe or a knife.


A Muslim terrorist went off to the Carcassonne train station in France. He had a machete and a knife. His plan was to kill American and English tourists before going after soldiers and police officers. Even though he was on an Islamist watch list, the authorities blamed psychological problems… 


There have been quite a few Muslims in Germany boarding the crazy train and trying to ride it all the way to the 72 virgins, dazzling white camels and musk mountains of Islamic paradise.
 continue

Jihadis are here and have been for a long time. Just one example below:
Iranian sleeper cells operating in U.S.

American intelligence agencies have growing evidence that the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist group maintains a network of sleeper cells in the United States, according to a new report.

Though Hezbollah has not conducted a major attack on U.S. soil, the group could decide to strike key American sites should U.S.-Iran relations deteriorate substantially, according to 
the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

“Preparations to combat Islamist terrorism broadly should strongly consider the nuanced and growing Hezbollah threat to U.S. national security,” the report concludes.

Until We Are Free: The Shirin Ebadi Story

Until We Are Free: My Personal Fight for Human Rights in Iran is a biographical account of Shirin Ebadi, a 2003 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. A native Iranian Muslim and proud of it, Mrs. Shirin Ebadi documented the cruelty of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In her book, Ebadi provides moving descriptions and clear evidence of the repressive nature of the Iranian regime. What emerges is a clear picture of a Stalinist-like regime absent the Soviet Gulags. The regime’s Intelligence Ministry shuts down all criticism of the regime, by arrests, torture and murder. There is no free press in the Islamic Republic of Iran, no free speech, and every facet of free life is controlled and repressed by the Ayatollahs, through their praetorian guards — the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), and the Basij Resistance Force, a voluntary paramilitary organization operating under the IRGC. It is an auxiliary force with multiple duties, including internal security, law enforcement, special religious and political events, and morals policing. To read more about her heroism go here

Obama’s Saboteurs

Undermining Our Republic

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 3/13/2017 12:30 PM

 

Setting a dangerous precedent for the future of America, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other Leftist propaganda machines and an army of the Obama administration’s holdovers, nothing less than saboteurs, have waged a war of innuendo and speculation and felony leaks for months in an attempt to destroy President Donald Trump’s administration and the government American voters demanded. They have turned their backs on the Constitution and the American people, their oath to protect and defend both, and they have sought to undermine our democratic process and the Republic of the United States of America.

 

Classified information leaked to the media – a felony – set speculation in motion as the New York Times and the left-leaning Mother Jones alleged collusion between Donald Trump and his advisors and Russia for the past six months, even though their own reports show an initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) warrant targeting Trump and several associates was denied and nothing criminal was ever proven. And, according to Heat Street [HERE & HERE], a more narrowly drawn FISA warrant was granted in October to investigate the Trump campaign’s alleged links to Russia’s Alfa Bank and SVB Bank; the FBI found nothing “nefarious” and attributed the raised alarm to “spam”.

 

Essentially, Donald Trump was not named in the second FISA warrant, but surveillance of him and his inner circle, private citizens such as Michael Flynn, Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, continued up to the general election [HERE & HERE]. One can only surmise that Obama and his leftist minions banked on finding information that would defeat Trump; and after Donald Trump won, they continued surveillance in hopes of eventually impeaching and unseating President Trump.

 

If phone calls to Russia merit an investigation, shouldn’t Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been investigated for accepting a $145 million bribe from Russia and ROSATOM [HERE & HERE] in exchange for helping them acquire twenty-five percent of America’s uranium resources? Oh, wait a minute — Hillary is a Democrat, so just overlook any criminal behavior.

 

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) suggested the Obama administration’s extensive surveillance of Trump’s presidential campaign was troubling but not surprising. Hatch “suspected that they were going to do that anyways.”

 

How could the media and the Obama machine — the Obama Foundation, billionaire George Soros and Organizing for America — not expect Trump to counter-punch? But incredulously, they were unprepared for President Trump’s March 4th 2017 allegation on Twitter that former President Obama “had my wires tapped in Trump Tower just before the victory”.

 

Who in the Obama administration ordered the FISA wiretaps and why?

 

U.S. citizens normally cannot be searched or subjected to electronic eavesdropping without probable cause of a crime, however FISA makes exceptions if there is probable cause they are agents of a foreign power. No one person can state with a straight face that “Trump is a Russian spy”.

 

Retired Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer, a defense intelligence officer trained by the CIA (Fox News), said, “I put this right at the feet of John Brennan and Jim Clapper, and I would even go so far as to say the White House was directly involved before [Obama} left”. He also asserted that it was clear sensitive information was divulged to the media by people who had access to beyond Top Secret material.

On the same day of President Trump’s bombshell, Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, told Judge Jeanine Pirro (Fox News) that the Obama administration was also “listening to conversations between then-Senator Jeff Sessions and the Ambassador from Russia while he was in his U.S. Senate office’. (And) the fact that the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act is being used to listen to a political opponent is “very, very damaging”.

Please note that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and many other Democrats met with this same Russian Ambassador. Their hypocrisy is on full display.

 

Some sort of surveillance of the Trump campaign occurred, if one can believe James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence. Clapper told NBC and ABC News that during his tenure in the Obama administration, up to January 20th 2017, there wasn’t any collusion or collaboration between Donald Trump’s campaign and the government of Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

 

The NYT’s story “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides” on January 19th 2017 states: “The FBI is leading the investigation, aided by the National Security Agency, the CIA and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks … intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the [Obama] White House.

 

With FBI Director James Comey’s motivation suspect, he asked the Justice Department to confirm that President Trump’s allegation was “absolutely false”. This was followed recently with Congress’s demand for any and all documents concerning any Department of Justice investigation of President Trump and his campaign.

 

Once the Democrats had their “uh oh moment”, as Garth Kant of WND called it, they realized that a scandal bigger than Watergate was beginning to unfold. The Obama Justice Department had apparently used its legal authorities to target a political opponent and a presidential candidate.

 

Any outrage from the Obama White House is extremely exaggerated. Obama does not deny that Trump was being monitored by his Justice Department, and any spying on his arch rival, a man with the ability to diminish his legacy, was done with Obama’s blessing. Only a fool could believe that Obama was ignorant of the spying. [Editor’s Bold Text]

 

From the DOJ’s seizure of Associated Press phone records and Fox News reporter James Rosen’s email records, to heavy IRS scrutiny of the Tea Party and on to the NSA’s warrantless mass surveillance of American citizens, the Obama administration’s enthusiasm for surveillance and using government power against its political enemies is a matter of shameful record. Obama’s and the Leftists’ so-called “Resistance” to the Trump administration has developed the feel of a not-so-covert coup against President Trump. [Editor’s Bold Text]

 

Americans are entitled to the full truth surrounding former President Obama’s use of nation-state resources for the purposes of political gain. Sycophantic rogue agents of the NSA, the CIA, the FBI and the Justice Department, all Democrat ideologues and communists, have apparently subverted the U.S. Constitution and spied on President Trump’s presidential campaign in a manner that was not approved by any court, in order to derail his election and the Democratic process, leaking sensitive national security secrets along the way. And anyone involved, including Obama, must be prosecuted and placed behind bars. [Editor’s Bold Text]

I saw on Fox News that Senator John McCain is publicly telling President Trump to put-up or apologize to the treasonous President Obama pertaining to the accusation of wiretapping during the 2016-election cycle. I don’t have the Fox News clip but here’s the CNN clip that Fox was referring to:

 

VIDEO: McCain: Provide wiretap evidence or retract

 

Posted by CNN

Published on Mar 12, 2017

 

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that President Trump should provide evidence for his unsubstantiated claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower or retract the accusation.

 

My God! McCain might as well stop being a RINO and out right join the Deep State Democratic Party and become an overt Obama minion. No wonder McCain lost to the Marxist oriented Obama in 2008.

 

McCain is making all kinds of noise that more news will come out connecting President Trump yet keeping silent (copying MSM) on mounting evidence of Russian links to Crooked Hillary and family marking political favors for God only knows what nefarious purposes.

 

Check this out from Angry Patriot:

 

While the liberals are trying their hardest to set up the Republicans in questionable ties with Russia, it seems as though it is being used as a distraction to hide the Democrats’ own connection with Russia.

 

Hillary Clinton’s election campaign manager, John Podesta, was on the board of a small energy company, Joule Unlimited, when it was given $35 million from a Russian government fund which has ties to Putin. (via Breitbart)

 

This information was discovered in a 56-page report titled, “From Russia with Money: Hillary Clinton, the Russian Reset, and Cronyism.” Podesta did not disclose this, although he is required to do so by law.

 

This was written by a non-partisan government watchdog group, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI). Stephen Bannon, the Executive Chairman of Breitbart and the Chief Strategist in the Trump Administration, is also the Executive Chairman of GAI.

 

During the “Russian reset,” then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the flag bearer of U.S. involvement in Russia’s technology initiative, called Skolkovo, which is intended to be the Slavic version of Silicon Valley.

 

This “innovation city” was to be located outside of Moscow and employ 30,000 people. Their technologically advanced facilities would be under the strict control of the Russian government. In 2013, the building was described, by Slate, as reminiscent of the Soviet “utopia” building projects.

 

The GAI report revealed that the Department of State, under Hillary Clinton, recruited companies like Intel, Cisco, and Google to participate in Russia’s project. Of the 28 companies that participated in Skolkovo, 17 were donors to the Clinton Foundation or had paid Bill Clinton to speak.

 

As Clinton’s involvement increased in the project, so did the chance that this technological investment was actually a way to spy on American military technology. In 2014, the FBI gave out an “extraordinary warning” to the companies participating in Skolkovo.

 

Podesta failed to mention that he had memberships to the board of this company, even while knowing that Russian investment in it may have been an attempt to steal our military technology. It all seems a bit suspicious. Why was Clinton, the U.S. State Department, and John Podesta tied up in this affair?

 

It would appear that they are the ones that need investigating into Russian ties rather than anyone in the Trump administration. (BREAKING: Hillary Connected to $35 MILLION Russian Bribe. Is This Treason? Angry Patriot; March 2017)

 

I can understand the Leftist MSM not picking up connections between Crooked Hillary and the Russians, but what Senator McCain goes after Trump for proof NOW when even the MSM has suggested improper violations of Obama Administration of wiretapping is just nuts. McCain would serve American Patriotism and the GOP better if he called out Obama to prove President Trump is incorrect.

 

Here are some news tidbits that implicate Obama wiretapping much more than President Trump angrily tweeting villainous Obama wiretapped the Trump campaign in a moment of emotional display.

DC Secrets and Lies

 

By Clarice Feldman

March 12, 2017

American Thinker

 

 

A quick look at Obama’s history reveals he has always had the inclination, motivation, and opportunity to snoop on and disseminate information about his political opponents. It’s how he made his political career: getting his opponents’ private divorce records unsealed and leaked with the help of the Chicago Tribune.

 

He and his administration continued this pattern and practice of skirting laws throughout his eight years in office, As Matthew Vadum reminds readers:

 

“Obama used the IRS to target conservative and Tea Party nonprofits, along with Catholic, Jewish, and pro-Israel organizations. He brazenly lied about it, too. His Justice Department surreptitiously obtained telephone records for more than 100 reporters.”

 

Wikileaks revealed that under Obama, the NSA intercepted conversations of numerous foreign officials, including UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, Angela Merkel, Benjamin Netanyahu, Silvio Berlusconi, and Nicolas Sarkozy.

 

So it is rather astonishing that so many disregard Trump’s claim that Obama and his aides spied upon him and his staff. There were several means at his disposal for him to do so, and it is increasingly likely that they did so. He apparently sought — twice — to get the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to approve tapping Trump communications, and was turned down once, in June of last year — a rare occurrence as in 10,000 applications in a six-year period only two were rejected. Reportedly the Obama administration tried again, using a slightly modified request and received permission. Heat Street reported this on November 7.

 

This week, investigative journalists Sara Carter and John Solomon confirmed that the FISA court warrant was granted in October.

 

 “What we don’t know is who was connected to that FISA,” Carter said on Sean Hannity’s show Wednesday night. “What was that FISA looking at? That is very highly classified. Nobody wants to talk about that particular FISA, right now. They said it did have to do with the Russian hacking on a very broad level, but it didn’t hone in directly on Trump is what I was told,” she said.

 

In addition to the FISA warrant in October, the FBI obtained a separate warrant that same month to look into a computer server tied to then-candidate Donald Trump’s businesses in Trump Towers (but not located in Trump Towers). According to the report, the feds used traditional investigative techniques to examine allegations of computer activity tied to two Russian banks and there had been no intercepts of Trump’s phone or emails.

 

The FBI quickly concluded, “the computer activity in question involved no nefarious contacts, bank transactions or encrypted communications with the Russians.”

 

The months-long FBI counterintelligence investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential campaign briefly investigated a computer server tied to Donald Trump’s businesses near the end of the election but has not gathered evidence of election tampering to date that would warrant criminal charges against any of the president’s associates, Circa has learned.

 

But a FISA warrant is not the only way to surveil communications. Under Chapter 36 of Title 50 of the US Code, and pursuant to Executive Order 12333, the president can authorize electronic surveillance without a court order, and we don’t know if Obama utilized one of these means as well. Nor can we ascertain who’s leaking, as on his way out of office –-17 days before his term was up — Obama allowed the National Security Agency to circulate such intercepted messages among 16 other intelligence agencies without following longstanding protocols designed to insure privacy of those involved in the communications, in effect inviting selective leaking by partisans in those agencies.

 

This week former NSA official Bill Binney confirmed the veracity of Trump’s claim that his conversations had been tapped and monitored and claimed it was done outside the courts.

 

Binney told Fox the laws that fall under the FISA court’s jurisdiction are “simply out there for show” and “trying to show that the government is following the law, and being looked at and overseen by the Senate and House intelligence committees and the courts.”

 

“That’s not the main collection program for NSA,” Binney said.

 

In any event, both the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and the head of the FBI James Comey have stated without equivocation that there was no evidence found of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia.

 

On the other hand, there is increasing evidence of Russian ties to Hillary Clinton and those closely connected to her.

 

Jerome Corsi connects a Russian billionaire to Putin with close ties.  He provides documentary “evidence of the circuitous path the Russian government has been using since Hillary Clinton was secretary of state to make large financial payments to John Podesta and to the Clinton Foundation.”

 

These transfers were made at the same time Hillary Clinton was transferring “U.S. advanced technology to Russia.”

 

John Podesta is not the only family member enriched by the Russians. His brother Tony also rode the Russian gravy train.

 

Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank, has confirmed that it hired the consultancy of Tony Podesta, the elder brother of John Podesta who chaired Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, for lobbying its interests in the United States and proactively seeking the removal of various Obama-era sanctions, the press service of the Russian institution told TASS on Thursday.

 

[snip]

 

Previously, The Daily Caller reported that Tony Podesta was proactively lobbying for cancellation of a range of anti-Russian sanctions against the banking sector. In particular, he represented interests of Sberbank and was paid $170,000 for his efforts over a six-month period last year to seek to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country.  Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

 

Former President Barack Obama imposed the Russian sanctions following the break out in violence in east Ukraine in 2014.

 

Podesta’s efforts were a key part of under-the-radar lobbying during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign led mainly by veteran Democratic strategists to remove sanctions against Sberbank and VTB Capital, Russia’s second largest bank.

 

[snip]

 

The lobbying campaign targeted Congress and the executive branch, with Podesta and other lobbyists arranging at least two meetings between Sberbank officers and Department of State officials, according to Elena Teplitskaya, Sberbank’s board chairman, who spoke to House aides in August.

 

[snip]

 

The Podesta Group represented Sberbank and its subsidiaries, Troika Dialog Group in the Cayman Islands, SBGB Cyprus Ltd in Nicosia, Cyprus, and SB International in Luxembourg. Troika Dialog also was related to Klein, Ltd., a Cayman Island organization that once funneled tens of millions of dollars to environmental groups to oppose low-cost fracking in the U.S., which was hurting the Russian oil industry.

 

[snip]

 

Sberbank was the lead financial institution in the Russian deal to purchase Uranium One, owned by one of Bill Clinton’s closest friends, Frank Giustra. Giustra and Bill Clinton lead the Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership, an integral part of the Clinton Foundation. Giustra has additionally donated $25 million to the Clinton Foundation.

 

Giustra sought to sell his stake in uranium reserves that included ore deposits in the Western United States, and Hillary Clinton, who as secretary of state, approved the sale. And in one felled swoop, 20 percent of America’s uranium ore was sold to the Russian state atomic agency.

During the pending sale, the Podesta Group represented Giustra’s company and tried to advance the transaction.

 

So there probably was surveillance on Trump and his associates, although no connection with Russia was established with them. Instead, all the connections to Russia were with Clinton and her closest associates.

 

What we also know was that, like Hillary Clinton, the Congressional Democrats repeatedly demonstrate a shocking disregard for national security. The Daily Caller has documented what the mainstream media is largely ignoring: the fact that dozens of Democratic congressmen, including the former head of the DNC, engaged three brothers from Pakistan and two of their wives at salaries multiple times over those similarly situated (over $4 million), gave them passwords, and allowed them access to sensitive computer files, even though it is impossible to fathom how people with their record of financial troubles got security clearances. These brothers are presently under criminal investigation accused of stealing House computer equipment and transferring information from Congressional files to a personal server. They owe $100,000 to an Iraqi businessman believed to have with ties to Hezb’allah who is a fugitive from U.S. authorities. This week, to cap it off, the brothers are under investigation for kidnapping and holding prisoner their stepmother to prevent her from seeing her dying husband in Pakistan.

 

Politico reports that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the DNC, refuses to fire one of the brothers even though he is banned from the House network. She’s keeping him on as an “adviser.”

 

Really, it’s impossible to parody Democrats these days. It would be too unbelievable.

SUPERSTAR REPORTER GOES PUBLIC WITH OBAMA’S CREEPY SPYING ON HER

Shares bizarre details about hacked computer as she investigated scandals

 

By GARTH KANT

March 12, 2017

WND

 

Former Attorney General Eric Holder and former President Obama

 

“It was one of those pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption beneath it ran.” – George Orwell, “1984” 

 

WASHINGTON – The woman who is perhaps the nation’s top investigative journalist is fighting back against Big Brother.

 

Sharyl Attkisson shared with WND a detailed and harrowing description of what it was like to experience a reality straight out of Orwell: The reporter claims she was spied on by the Obama administration while investigating its scandals.

 

What tipped her off?

 

Imagine what it must be like to watch your computer turn itself on and off.

 

“That’s one visible sign I noticed over many months,” Attkisson told WND in an email interview.

 

“At the time, I suspected it was some sort of phishing program seeking my passwords and contacts, and was confident my computer had sufficient protections. I never suspected it was connected to an intrusion of my systems until sources and forensics told me that it was.”

 

She also watched a different computer that she used delete files by itself.

 

After Attkisson released a video showing that as it was happening, Vox’s Max Fisher claimed it was more likely that she had a stuck backspace key.

 

Sharyl Attkisson

 

WND asked, as an Emmy-award winning investigative journalist and now the anchor of her own Sunday morning national TV news program, Full Measure,” did she find Fisher’s claim that she was confused by a keyboard plausible?

 

“It was just a silly attempt by a noted propagandist blog that had no firsthand information to deflect from the surveillance,” she replied dismissively.

 

“The ‘expert’ didn’t even know enough to understand there is no ‘backspace’ key on the computer shown, and — in any event — that holding down such a key cannot duplicate the super fast deletions demonstrated at the beginning of that particular video clip.”

 

What do YOU think? Will President Trump spy on American citizens like Obama did? Sound off now in the WND Poll!

 

The five-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative reporting announced in January she is suing the Justice Department and seeking $35 million in damages for illegally hacking her computers and monitoring her work between 2011 and 2013.

 

Three separate computer forensic exams of her computers revealed what appears to be stunning evidence pointing straight to the Obama administration.

 

“The most important and irrefutable finding is: forensic evidence of a government-owned I.P. (internet protocol) address accessing my computer,” Attkisson told WND.

 

She said she was told that was “better evidence than the U.S. had when it accused China of various acts of hacking into our government, which the government accepts as proven.”

 

Her computers were examined by three independent forensics examiners including: a confidential source, an examiner hired by CBS News, and an examiner hired by her attorney.

 

What they found is just stunning.

 

Attkisson provided an itemized overview of some of their findings, and described what a confidential source and examiner hired by her attorney found:

 

  • “A government-owned I.P. address was used to access my computer.”

 

  • “We are able to see instances of exact date and time that the intruders entered my computers, and the methods they used to do so.”

 

  • “They used commercial, non-attributable software proprietary to the CIA, FBI, NSA or DIA.”

 

  • “The malware was constantly running on my computers. It included a feature that logged my keystrokes, accessed all my emails and collected my passwords.”

 

  • “Skype was surreptitiously used to listen in on audio.”

 

  • “My smartphone was also infected.”

 

  • “Three classified documents had been put on my computer.”

 

  • “Once sources notified me that I was likely being surveilled, and I discussed this in emails, the intruders took steps to erase evidence of their presence. However, the deletions themselves create a record of evidence.”

 

CBS and its analyst found:

 

  • “Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.”

 

  • “Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts.”

 

  • “An intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data.”

 

  • “This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.”

 

  • “[Attkisson’s] systems were indeed subject to non-standard interactions between June 2012 and January 2013.”

 

  • “Definitive evidence that shows commands were run from Sharyl’s user account that she did not personally authorize.”

 

  • “This history has been deliberately removed from Sharyl’s hard drive.”

 

  • The intruders conducted an inordinate number of internal computer clock “time stamp” changes, likely to try to confuse any forensics that might be conducted.

 

Why her?

 

WND asked the former CBS Washington bureau investigative correspondent, did she think the administration considered her a foe? And acted to stop her out of purely political concerns?

 

“I have no idea, the perpetrators would have to answer that question and they certainly aren’t stepping forward,” she replied.

 

“But,” she continued, “my computer intrusions occurred in context of the Obama administration’s crackdown on whistleblowers and a lot of my work deals with whistleblowers.”

 

“Additionally, we know the administration was aggressively trying to control the narrative on a number of stories it saw as damaging, especially as the re-election year of 2012 shaped up.”

 

Attkisson detailed her experience under surveillance in 2014 in her highly acclaimed New York Times bestseller, “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.”

 

Stonewalled by Sharyl Attkisson

 

Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, records previously obtained by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch indicate Attkisson was targeted by the Obama administration because of critical reporting.

 

In 2014, Judicial Watch said it “obtained an October 4, 2011, email to White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz, Attorney General Eric Holder’s top press aide, (in which) Tracy Schmaler, described Attkisson as ‘out of control.’

 

“Schmaler added ominously, ‘I’m also calling Sharryl’s [sic] editor and reaching out to Scheiffer’ (an apparent reference to CBS’ Chief Washington Correspondent and Face the Nation moderator Bob Scheiffer). Schultz responded, ‘Good. Her piece was really bad for the AG’ (attorney general.)”

 

Given that Obama’s Justice Department had labeled her as “out of control” and tried to get the reporter’s employer to rein her in, WND asked Attkisson:  What did she make of an administration that seeks to control reporters?

 

“I expect it,” was the sober response. “But it’s our job to resist it and we aren’t doing a very good job of that as an industry.”

 

(Attkisson described problems endemic in the news media, including the genesis of fake news, in an interview with WND in December previewing her new book titled “The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote,” due to be published on May 22, 2017.)

 

The Smear by Sharyl Attkisson

 

Did she think her experience and that of the Associated Press and Fox News reporter James Rosen (both spied on by the Obama administration) were part of a pattern?

 

“Yes. I was informed about my case prior to us knowing about any of the other cases, just before the Snowden revelations, and prior to former DNI (Director of National Intelligence James) Clapper falsely telling Congress that the government was not collecting data of millions of Americans…but all of these events occurred in the same general time frame.”

 

So, was it the administration that was “out of control?”

 

“You decide!” she replied, echoing a famous news slogan.

 

Investigating the truth about her own story, the award-winning reporter has faced what she called a Catch-22 dilemma.

 

“To find out who accessed my computer, we need the government’s cooperation, but the government isn’t cooperating.”

 

“In my lawsuit, we seek to learn who had access to the I.P. address that was used to infiltrate my computer,” she continued. “To date, the Department of Justice has taken multiple steps to block us from finding this answer.”

 

However, her persistence has revealed some compelling results.

 

“Finally, at my request, the DOJ (Department of Justice) Inspector General’s office sent investigators to look at a separate computer, my personal home computer.”

 

Attkisson said that although the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office will not release their notes and records, “and have improperly failed to respond to my Freedom of Information Act request for the information,” their forensics investigators reported to her that they found the following on her personal computer:

 

  • “Evidence of suspicious deletions of files that could not have been done by me.

 

  • “Use of my computer in ‘advanced mode’ (which was not done by me).”

 

  • “‘Someone’ installed software onto my desktop and executed it and overwrote some important logs effectively covering their tracks and erasing much evidence of their actions.”

 

  • “As with my CBS computer, they found a lot of unusual time and date setting changes on my personal computer as well (15 times in four days).”

 

  • “They executed data recovery, recovering previously deleted logs.”

 

Attkisson said the forensics examiners working for the Justice Department’s inspector general “told me they believed the intruder(s) were actually working in my house at the computer conducting these acts, rather than conducting them remotely, but, in fact, the acts were conducted remotely, as with the work computers referenced above.”

 

“Furthermore,” she continued, “the examiners indicated that prior to their supervisors signing off on their findings, ‘somebody’ narrowed their mission to only reporting on any ‘remote’ intrusions (i.e. not addressing the suspicious forensics they found by someone they believed was actually in my house working at the computer.)”

 

And that’s when the investigation hit a wall.

 

“At this point, as their report was sent to higher-ups for approval, they dialed back their communications with me and would not deliver the promised final report or the notes that went with it.”

 

Attkisson said she filed a FOIA to obtain them but it was ignored. Many months went by.

 

“When Congress pressed the issue, the DOJ IG issued only a summary and emphasized there was no evidence of ‘remote’ intrusion in that computer and left out the suspicious forensics they discovered,” explained the investigative super-sleuth. “To this day, the DOJ IG has failed to properly respond to my FOIA requests seeking the full information and report.”

 

As a result, “Many in the media misreported that this DOJ IG report was somehow conclusive evidence that my computers had not been infiltrated.”

 

“In fact,” she clarified, “the DOJ IG didn’t even examine the primary computers in question — referenced in the other exams above— because CBS would not allow them to look at the computers.”

 

Did she think the problem was specific to the previous administration, or was it due the growth of the surveillance community, its powers and lack of oversight?

 

“I think this is an outgrowth of technology that makes such surveillance possible, politicians and corporate interests who are willing to use it for improper purposes, and a weak and conflicted news media that has done little to stop it.”

 

Finally, WND said it would be remiss if it did not ask the ace reporter if her experience had given her any insight into President Trump’s accusations that his campaign had been spied on by the Obama administration.

 

However, Attkisson said she has not looked at, or reported, on those allegations.

Oklahoma Rep., Marine Too, Rocks: Busted Through Civilizational Jihad …


I came across a post six days ago from Adina Kutnicki about John Bennett a State Congressman from Oklahoma. To pique your interest in the post let me to get to the point that Kutnicki builds up to.

At the third annual Muslim Day Bennett Muslim constituents are given the opportunity to “interact with state legislators” that are constituents. Prior to the interaction, Bennett required his Muslim constituents to fill out a survey.

 

That should be enough to inspire you to read the entire post to find out what was in the survey and for its reason.

 

Oh yeah, did I mention I live in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Rep., Marine Too, Rocks: Busted Through Civilizational Jihad Via “Muslim Capital Day.” A Template. Commentary 

 

By Adina Kutnicki

March 6, 2017

Adina Kutnicki – A Zionist & Conservative Blog

 

FULL disclosure: this Muslim Brotherhood expert has a sweet spot for patriotic men who have the stones to stand up and be counted. For the most part, they fiercely protect those they hold near and dear, as well as the core values of national import. Yes, wishy-washy, PC bull-crap doesn’t factor in, nor cloud their (moral) vision. And, more often than not (of course, there are always rotten apples), behind many such men lies a stint in the U.S. Marines. There you have it…. “The Few. The Proud.”

 

BUT not to veer too far off (historical) course, think about this tidbit: how many know that Thomas Jefferson recognized what’s what and who’s who, as he understood the Muslim score to a historical tee? Indeed, that westerners could never, ever – in any way, shape or form – negotiate with followers of Islam. Mohammedans. Period.

 

RESULTANT, as noted within “BANNED: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad” (pg. 48): “when called upon to deal with the Barbary pirates, as Muslim kingdoms engaged in piracy and kidnapping on the high seas, Jefferson read the Qur’an to see if it was possible to negotiate with them. Hence, America’s first foreign conflict and the source of the line in the “Marine Corps Hymn”, “to the shores of Tripoli.”

 

INHERENTLY, have Americans forgotten their history to the degree that too many are incapable of drawing the salient parallels between militant jihad of yesteryear and that of today, that which are really one and the same? Most significantly, above all else, it will be through a non-sanitized version of the political, cultural and quasi-religious basis of Islam that western civilization will be saved. Rest assured, without the proper lessons learned, as always, it is verily impossible to fight back. It’s a bit like chasing ghosts.”

 

WHICH brings the discussion straight back into the path of Republican Rep. John Bennett of Oklahoma, you know, the rockin’ Marine too!

 

SO without further ado……

 

Oklahoma Rep. John Bennett asked his constituents taking part in the state’s third annual Muslim Day on Thursday — in which Muslims have the opportunity to interact with state legislators at the capitol — to fill out the questionnaire.

 

Adam Soltani, executive director of Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) Oklahoma, said that high school students from Tulsa’s Peace Academy visited Bennett’s office to either meet with him or schedule a meeting. The students were met by a legislative assistant, Soltani said, who gave the students a questionnaire, telling them it must be filled out in writing.

 

Some of the questions in the document included the following:

“Sharia law says that it must rule over the kafirs, the non-Muslims. Do you agree with this?”

 

“The Koran, the sunna of Mohammed and Sharia Law of all schools say that the husband can beat his wife. Do you beat your wife?”

 

“Mohammed was a killer of pagans, Christians and Jews that did not agree with him. Do you agree with this example?

 

“I have heard that, according to accepted Islamic sources, Mohammed, at age of 49, married a 6-year-old girl, and that he had sex with her when he was 52 and she was only 9 years old. Is that really true?”

 

Bennett, a former US Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, made headlines in 2014 when he made anti-Islam comments on social media, later adding that Islam is a “cancer in our nation that needs to be cut out.” He also said there is no difference between moderate and radical Islam.

 

“How can I be racist against Muslims or Islam when the ethnicity is actual Arab?” he said at the time, adding, “This is kind of confusing.”

 

Last year, Oklahoma lawmakers approved a proposal Bennett submitted to study the “current threat posed by radical Islam and the effect that Sharia Law, the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadist indoctrination have in the radicalization process in Oklahoma and America.”

 

Jihad Linked U.S. Muslim Orgs & People

 

BUT in order to internalize the depth of his patriotism and outside-the-box thinking, let’s first examine how Brotherhood Mafia front groups continuously pave the way for overturning America; step-by step, phase by phase. Then, and only then, can patriots recognize the depth of their infiltration and penetration, thus, exposing how Bennett (and a few other stalwart reps) outfoxed Islam’s stealth jihadists. Yes, aside from all else, they slither from capital to capital, feigning to assert their democratic “right” to influence respective leaders, as if stealth aka civilizational jihad is part of the American fabric and contract between the citizens and the government!

 

Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, Akram’s 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”

 

Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”

 

In line with this objective, Akram and the Brotherhood resolved to “settle” Islam and the Islamic movement within the United States, so that the Muslim religion could be “enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country.” Akram explained that this could be accomplished “through the establishment of firmly-rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built.” He urged Muslim leaders to make “a shift from the collision mentality to the absorption mentality,” meaning that they should abandon any tactics involving defiance or confrontation, and seek instead to implant into the larger society a host of seemingly benign Islamic groups with ostensibly unobjectionable motives; once those groups had gained a measure of public acceptance, they would be in a position to more effectively promote societal transformation by the old Communist technique of “boring from within.”

 

“The heart and the core” of this strategy, said Akram, was contingent upon these groups’ ability to develop “a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions.’” That is, by working synergistically they could complement, augment, and amplify one another’s efforts. Added Akram: “The big challenge that is ahead of us is how to turn these seeds or ‘scattered’ elements into comprehensive, stable, ‘settled’ organizations that are connected with our Movement and which fly in our orbit and take orders from our guidance.” The ultimate objective was not only an enlarged Muslim presence, but also implementation of the Brotherhood objectives of transforming pluralistic societies, particularly America, into Islamic states, and sweeping away Western notions of legal equality, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.

 

Akram and the Brotherhood understood that in order to succeed in this endeavor, they needed to appeal to different strata of the American population in different ways; that whereas some people could be influenced by messages delivered from a religious perspective, others would be more responsive to messages delivered by educators, or bankers, or political figures, or journalists, etc. Thus, Akram’s blueprint for the advancement of the Islamic movement stressed the need to form a coalition of groups coming from the worlds of education; religious proselytization; political activism; audio and video production; print media; banking and finance; the physical sciences; the social sciences; professional and business networking; cultural affairs; the publishing and distribution of books; children and teenagers; women’s rights; vocational concerns; and jurisprudence.

 

By promoting the Islamic movement on such a wide variety of fronts, the Brotherhood and its allies could multiply exponentially their influence. Toward that end, the Akram/Brotherhood “Explanatory Memorandum” named the following 29 groups as the organizations they believed could collaborate effectively to destroy America from within – “if they all march according to one plan”:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By setting up these many front groups, the Muslim Brotherhood was emulating the Communist Party tactic of creating interlocking front groups during the Cold War in order to confuse its enemies and make it more difficult to combat.

IN light of the above (and so much more), how frightening is it to know that Allah’s Muslim terrorists have been wildly successful within all American spheres, and with their political muscle displayed within: 

 

US Council of Muslim Organizations logo

 

The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of leading national and local American Muslim organizations, today announced plans to host the first-of-its-kind National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on April 13, 2015.

 

ALAS, is it any wonder that Iraqi-American Christians, Chaldeans, are petrified in their adopted homeland – yes, they are true refugees – due to the massive inroads carved out by followers of Islam, despite the fact that Shariah Law adherents are tied to every terror attack, bar none? Not only that, the very same Chaldeans already won an initial round in 2015 in Sterling Heights, Michigan, when they protested against a mega mosque – another! barracks within – being built in the midst of their community! But lo and behold, once again, Islamic pressure tactics – ala lawfare – turned justice upside its head.

 

In the end, the Iraqi Christians of Sterling Heights, Michigan, say they felt abandoned and left vulnerable by their government.

 

It didn’t matter that they had escaped genocide in the Middle East.

 

It didn’t matter they had 180 people at the City Council meeting Tuesday to voice their concerns about a large mosque being proposed in the middle of their neighborhood.

 

It didn’t matter, they say, that Donald Trump is their new president or that Jeff Sessions is the new attorney general.

 

They lost. The Muslims won.

 

The city on Tuesday night agreed to a settlement with a Muslim group that wants to build a mega-mosque on 15 Mile at Mound Road, in the heart of a residential area filled with Christians who escaped Muslim persecution in Iraq.

 

The nearly 200 people who packed city hall in protest of the mosque were limited by Mayor Michael C. Taylor to two minutes of speaking time.

 

“There were people crying, complaining about not being given enough time to speak,” said Nahren Anweya, spokeswoman for the approximately 50,000 Chaldean and Assyrian Christians living in the area.

 

“The mayor was literally acting like a dictator, wouldn’t let people finish their statements,” she told WND. “As soon as they said something about the persecution their family experienced from Muslims in Iraq, he would shut them down.”

 

Anweya said her own great-grandfather was crucified by Muslims in Iraq because he refused to remove the large gold cross he wore around his neck. Her family immigrated to the U.S. in 1989, when she was 6 years old.

 

Sensitivity training

 

Nahren Anweya’s family fled Iraq in 1989 after being decimated by Muslim community there.

 

According to the settlement deal, the city of Sterling Heights will grant the American Islamic Community Center a permit to build a 20,800-square-foot mosque and will send city employees to classes teaching them how not to discriminate against Muslims in the future.

 

The city planning commission had denied the mosque permit in September 2015, but nearly a year later the mosque sued the city claiming discrimination. In December 2016, the U.S. Department of Justice joined in with a similar suit claiming the city violated the Religious…..read the whole devastating betrayal….

 

AS the precipitating dangers creep closer and closer, the backbone of the aforementioned Oklahoma rep (and like-minded leaders), heartening as it is, is only a first step towards halting the final infiltration and penetration of Allah’s Muslim terrorists into the U.S. body politic. In tandem, post haste, President Trump MUST sign Bill S.2230 to designate the Brotherhood Mafia a terror organization, while millions of Americans MUST commit to join the struggle before it is too late. How late is it?

CJR Videos and Sources on Deep State

On March 7 Daniel Greenfield posted “#OBAMAGATE: EXPOSING THE OBAMA DEEP STATE” on FrontPageMag.com. The piece was so passionate I picked up for three blogs I post on (HERE, HERE & HERE). One of my favorite blogs to read is The Counter Jihad Report. That blog is a much better aggregator of news and opinion pieces than I and they also picked up Greenfield’s piece on Obama’s Deep State intrusion on President Trump’s Administration.

 

Unlike my cross posts, CJR posted five videos and a list of other linked titles on the Deep State issue that were unrelated to Greenfield’s FrontPageMag.com original post.

 

That portion is also informative and gratifying thus I am cross posting CJR’s part of the post separate from Greenfield’s.

 

(As an update to the CJR post, I noticed Youtube had taken down one of the videos. I decided to go with a replacement version. I matched the title to what I believe was the same material as the video removed by Youtube. I found two versions of Monica Crowley speaking on Hannity about the viciousness of the American Left to bring down the Trump Administration. I am going with the minute-ten version of Ms. Crowley going off on the Left about their agenda toward President Trump. The unedited Fox News version begins with condolences to Crowley as Alan Colmes’ sister-in-law followed by the Left’s personal attacks on Crowley over now debunked plagiarism accusations. Then Hannity proceeds to talk about the general Leftist assault on Trump and members of his Administration. The full Fox interview is entitled, “Monica Crowley: What happened to me was a political hit job”. On this blog you will view the excerpted Trump News Network version.)

VIDEO: Lou Dobbs: Paul Sperry – Obama’s ‘shadow government’ is organizing to sabotage Trump

 

Posted by Gary Moore

Published on Feb 15, 2017

 

Obama is quietly building a shadow opposition government to sabotage Trump and Republicans as well and their policies, while at the same time saving his legacy. According to Paul Sperry, there are currently 32,000 professional agitators trained in Alinsky’s rules for radicals tactics. Another 25,000 are undergoing training now with a third training summit coming up in March, 2017.

The ‘Shadow Government’ formed by Barack Obama is a radical Alinsky group being professionally packaged and labelled “Organizing For Action” or ‘OFA’.

Further detailed quotes and URLs from the video are below:

“The Obama friendly media will continue to cover this up as long as they can so that Obama can get this ‘Shadow Government’ built up.

Republicans do not know what they’re up against here.

Obama is quietly building this shadow opposition government to sabotage Trump and Republicans as well and their policies, while at the same time saving his own legacy.

He’s doing all this through a radical Alinsky group that he founded called “Organizing For Action”, OFA. They have an army of agitators and they are fanning out, they are going to hit Republicans even harder next week when they go home for recess, back to their home districts. They took it out of the Obama campaign in 2012, it was part of that campaign, and they turned it into a 501C4 so they don’t have to show their donors.

It starts as a training center. These are professionally trained agitators, they’re schooled in Alinsky’s rules for radicals tactics, a program that lasts six weeks. About 32,000 have gone through this training. There are another 25,000 under training now with another training summit coming up in March.

We haven’t seen the worst of these protests, these are really going to hit hard.

Obama’s the guy whose behind all this. He’s the mastermind.

If you look at the bottom of Obama’s website at https://barackobama.com/ in small print at the center of the page, there are links to the Obama Foundation and the Organizing For Action (OFA). The links to these two organizations are listed below.

Obama Foundation: https://www.obama.org/
Organizing For Action (OFA): https://www.ofa.us/

Eventually, Obama wants to merge the Obama Foundation and the OFA. He also wants Tom Perez, Obama’s Labor Secretary from 2013 to 2017, to head the DNC. With Perez heading the DNC, OFA’s proprietary database of voters which has never been shared with the DNC, OFA’s email list consisting of millions of Obama supporters and OFA’s donor list would be made available to the DNC.

Once the DNC receives these from OFA, you have a super structure with a formidable organizing infrastructure.”

NSA whistleblower Bill Binney says Trump was wiretapped

 

Bunkerville – God, Guns and Guts Comrades!

March 9, 2017

 

Anyone who has passed by this way before, knows I am a big fan of former NSA master mind, William Binney. What has been revealed this week was foretold by him years ago. After all, he was the creator of the mass surveillance program. At the end of the post is a riveting clip of an interview with him. This interview was made in 2012. So while many of us dirt people have been accused of wearing tin foil, the info was out there all the time.

 

Binney resigned from NSA shortly after the U.S. approach to intelligence changed following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He “became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he had helped develop — nicknamed ThinThread — were being used to spy on Americans,” PBS reported.

 

Washington’s Blog asked the highest-level NSA whistleblower in history – Bill Binney – whether he thought Trump had been bugged.

 

Binney is the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees.

 

He was a 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker.

 

Binney also mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”).

 

Binney told Washington’s Blog:

 

NSA has all the data through the Upstream programs (Fairview/Stormbrew/Blarney)  [background] and backed up by second and some third party country collection.

 

Plus the FBI and CIA plus others, as of the last month of the Obama administration, have direct access to all the NSA collection (metadata and content on phones, email and banking/credit cards etc.) with no attempt at oversight by anybody [background]. This is all done under Executive Order 12333 [the order which allows unlimited spying no matter what intelligence officials claim] ….

 

FBI would only ask for a warrant if they wanted to be able to take it into court at some point given they have something meaningful as evidence. This is clearly true given the fact the President Trump’s phone conversations with other country leaders were leaked to the mainstream media.

Former NSA Whistleblower: “Trump Is Absolutely Right, Everything Was Being Monitored”

 

By Tyler Durden

Mar 8, 2017 5:13 AM

ZeroHedge

 

Legendary NSA whistleblower William Binney (and creator of NSA’s global surveillance system) confirmed to Fox News, that President Trump is “absolutely right” to claim he was wiretapped and monitored… he was.

 

William Binney

 

As we noted previouslyBinney is the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees, the 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker, who mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”). Binney is the real McCoy.

 

Binney resigned from NSA shortly after the U.S. approach to intelligence changed following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He “became a whistleblower after discovering that elements of a data-monitoring program he had helped develop — nicknamed ThinThread — were being used to spy on Americans,” PBS reported.

 

On Monday he came to the defense of the president, whose allegations on social media over the weekend that outgoing President Barack Obama tapped his phones during the 2016 campaign have rankled Washington.

Wow! THE NSA IS COLLECTING EVERYTHING WE DO!

===

 

“I think the president is absolutely right. His phone calls, everything he did electronically, was being monitored,” Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency who resigned in protest from the organization in 2001, told Fox Business on Monday.

 

Everyone’s conversations are being monitored and stored, Binney said.

 

Binney also told Sean Hannity’s radio show earlier Monday, “I think the FISA court’s basically totally irrelevant.” The judges on the FISA court are “not even concerned, nor are they involved in any way with the Executive Order 12333 collection,” Binney said during the radio interview. “That’s all done outside of the courts. And outside of the Congress.”

 

Binney also told Fox the laws that fall under the FISA court’s jurisdiction are “simply out there for show” and “trying to show that the government is following the law, and being looked at and overseen by the Senate and House intelligence committees and the courts.”

 

“That’s not the main collection program for NSA,” Binney said.

* * *

What Binney did not delve into, however, was if Obama directed surveillance on Trump for political purposes during the campaign, a core accusation of Trump’s. But Binney did say events such as publication of details of private calls between President Trump and the Australian prime minister, as well as with the Mexican president, are evidence the intelligence community is playing hardball with the White House.

 

“I think that’s what happened here,” Binney told Fox. “The evidence of the conversation of the president of the U.S., President Trump, and the [prime minister] of Australia and the president of Mexico. Releasing those conversations. Those are conversations that are picked up by the FAIRVIEW program, primarily, by NSA.”

 

Since Binney designed the NSA’s electronic surveillance system, he would know.

MARK LEVIN & TREY GOWDY: TRUMP VICTIM OF OBAMA’S DEEP STATE CONSPIRACY

 

By Jim Kouri

NWV Senior Political News Writer

March 8, 2017 1:00 AM Eastern

NewsWithViews.com

 

According to the international whistleblower and government watchdog, Julian Assange, by the end of 2016, the CIA’s hacking division, which formally falls under the agency’s Center for Cyber Intelligence (CCI), had over 5000 registered users and had produced more than a thousand hacking systems, Trojan horses, viruses, and other “weaponized” malware.

 

Two of America’s top legal minds – both of whom were successful prosecutors and trial attorneys – believe that the new president is being victimized by a secret cabal comprised of Democratic politicians, their puppetmasters and the majority of news organizations.

 

Despite, the daily drumbeat by journalists that the claims of President Donald Trump are outrageous and without credibility, top-rated talk host and former chief of staff at the U.S. Justice Department Mark Levin and former prosecuting attorney and House Select Committee on Benghazi chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy are willing to bet-the-farm that Trump’s allegations will expose a conspiracy to delegitimize and bringdown a sitting president.

 

This week, President Donald Trump doubled-down on his accusations that his predecessor, President Barack Obama, wiretapped the Trump Tower in New York City during the run-up to the presidential election. Trump is calling on Congress to launch a formal investigation into the eavesdropping by a federal law enforcement or intelligence agency. However, Trump believes the House and Senate Intelligence Committees are the way to go.

 

Trump voiced his allegation on his Twitter account and compared the Obama spy situation to Nixon’s Watergate and the McCarthy Hearings.

 

Benghazi investigation leader, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-SC, said that if the surveillance indeed took place carried on then there are only a couple ways to justify the surveillance: Americans can either be wiretapped as part of a criminal inquiry, or as part of an intelligence gathering operation under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

 

“There is no other way for it lawfully to be done,” said Gowdy. “The good news about both of those … is there’s a paper trail. There’s an application. There are warrants — all of which can be reviewed.”

 

“The Obama team is no longer in charge,” Gowdy noted. “So any information the current Department of Justice has that suggests the previous Department of Justice acted inappropriately, they are welcome to release it.”

 

Gowdy on Monday also dismissed as premature any calls for any special prosecutor to investigate Russian links to Trump’s campaign.

 

“There is no special prosecutor statute. There is no independent counsel statute. There’s a regulation that allows for the appointment of special counsel if the Department of Justice has a conflict and if all 92 U.S. attorneys have a conflict. Until that evidentiary burden has been satisfied, I don’t know why Republicans or Democrats are talking about special counsel,” Gowdy said.

 

“It’s too early. Special Counsel only applies to a criminal investigation,” he said, also adding that the FBI would be the agency to investigate a potential crime.

Unfortunately, Trump allowed far too many Obama minions to remain in the White House and in the various federal agencies.

 

“I want this investigated but not by FBI Director James Comey, who I wouldn’t hire as a traffic officer writing parking tickets in New York. He’s a failure as FBI chief and should be forced to resign or be fired,” said former New York City Detective Iris Aquino. “And Trump better take this opportunity to replace a lot of people in his agencies.”

 

Aquino believes that former intelligence chief James Clapper who also denied Trump’s allegations, has a history of lying and even perjured himself before a House panel. “There were more than 50 intelligence officers who complained that intelligence was tailored to backup President Barack Obama’s lies and his agenda,” she added

 

Conservative radio show host Mark Levin said the evidence was “overwhelming” that Obama conducted surveillance during Trump’s campaign. Levin, a former chief of staff in the U.S. Justice Department, called the effort a “silent coup” by the Obama administration and demanded that it be investigated.

 

Levin made the case that former President Obama and his operatives have actively worked to spy on, and undermine, President Donald Trump and his administration.

 

Levin spoke to “Fox & Friends” on Sunday and used liberal news sources to essentially prove that the Obama administration was behind spying on President Trump and others in his campaign during the election season.
WIKILEAKS RELEASES DOCUMENTS REGARDING ILLEGAL CIA SPYING IN U.S.

 

According to the international whistleblower and government watchdog, Julian Assange, by the end of 2016, the CIA’s hacking division, which formally falls under the agency’s Center for Cyber Intelligence (CCI), had over 5000 registered users and had produced more than a thousand hacking systems, Trojan horses, viruses, and other “weaponized” malware.

 

Such is the scale of the CIA’s undertaking that by 2016, its hackers had utilized more code than that used to run Facebook. The CIA had created, in effect, its “own NSA” with even less accountability and without publicly answering the question as to whether such a massive budgetary spend on duplicating the capacities of a rival agency could be justified, noted Wikileaks founder Assange.

 

“In a statement to WikiLeaks the source details policy questions that they say urgently need to be debated in public, including whether the CIA’s hacking capabilities exceed its mandated powers and the problem of public oversight of the agency. The source wishes to initiate a public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons,” wrote Assange.

 

Once a single cyber ‘weapon’ is ‘loose’ it can spread around the world in seconds, to be used by rival states, cyber mafia and teenage hackers alike.

 

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor stated that “There is an extreme proliferation risk in the development of cyber ‘weapons’. Comparisons can be drawn between the uncontrolled proliferation of such ‘weapons’, which results from the inability to contain them combined with their high market value, and the global arms trade. But the significance of “Year Zero” goes well beyond the choice between cyberwar and cyberpeace. The disclosure is also exceptional from a political, legal and forensic perspective.”

Packed away in the thousands of documents released by WikiLeaks Tuesday was one that fascinated talk show host Rush Limbaugh because it links to the narrative of alleged connections between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign.

 

“Folks, we are in the midst of dangerous times like you cannot believe, and Donald J. Trump is the target,” he said.

 

Limbaugh noted that in the documents showing how the CIA hacks a vast array of electronic devices was evidence that the CIA often mimics Russian hackers.

 

“By the way, in the WikiLeaks dump today of thousands and thousands of documents from the CIA, do you know what is included? A little program called UMBRAGE. What this program is, apparently the CIA has the ability to mimic Russian hackers. In other words, the CIA has the ability to hack anybody they want and make it look like the Russians are doing it,” he said.

 

“Isn’t that interesting, given everything we’ve been told about the election? ‘The Russians hacked the election, that the Russians did this, the Russians did that.’ So far we don’t have any evidence the Russians did anything! But we have all kinds of supposition that the American deep state is deeply involved in whatever sabotage is being conducted on the Trump administration,” Limbaugh said.

 

“The evidence the Russians were involved? Nobody’s got it. Everybody runs around and talks about it as though it’s a fait accompli, but there isn’t any evidence,” Limbaugh noted.

Limbaugh said liberals and the media sought to manufacture a way to attack Trump.

 

“… (S)o I think because of everything that we’re learning here, the danger that Donald Trump has faced ever since he won the election is greater than we’ve ever known,” he said. “The establishment of this country — whatever you want to call it, the ruling class — is desperate. We’re living in times they never thought possible or didn’t consider likely, and that is somebody from outside their group being president, being vice president, being secretary of state, being secretary of commerce, being attorney general. This kind of thing, this is such an assault, and it’s got them in a state of panic.”

 

Limbaugh said that the claims of Russian connections to the Trump campaign were “a pretext to have a never-ending investigation of Trump.”

 

Limbaugh suggested that a Trump supporter is behind the dump of CIA secrets.

 

“Now, it’s gonna take weeks or longer to understand all the implications of the data in the WikiLeaks CIA dump. But one matter is abundantly clear to me. Someone who really supports Trump is trying to counter what’s happening to him,” he said,” … somebody who supports Trump somewhere in the deep state is trying to impede and impugn the integrity of all of these investigations.”

 

Limbaugh noted that it is not just the CIA under attack from the leaks, but also the Obama administration.

 

“… (M)ost of what the WikiLeaks CIA release contains is what the CIA has been doing during the Obama years, specifically 2013 to 2016. And you throw Trump’s weekend tweet into this that Obama was hacking him,” Limbaugh said, “… you look at Trump’s weekend tweets, this CIA leak to WikiLeaks or the dump to WikiLeaks about the CIA is even more and more curious. The timing is exquisite.”

 

Limbaugh said that Trump’s claims about Obama now play into a new narrative of CIA spying.

 

“This is absolutely beautiful the way this is playing out. It’s a brilliant maneuver on Trump’s part, whether he intended it to be or not,” Limbaugh said.

 

“And the theory that I articulated … was, when everybody was saying, ‘What the hell is Trump doing? Oh, my God, Obama tapped?’ I said, ‘Look, what I think Trump’s actually doing is saying, “You guys want to lie about me in your Russia stuff, here’s a taste of your own medicine. I’m just gonna fire something right back at you.’” So he fires back that Obama is bugging him, that Obama bugged Trump Tower, and look what that has wrought. It’s fascinating,” Limbaugh added.

NSA Whistleblower: Spy Agencies Eavesdrop On Americans Without Warrants All The Time

NSA surveillance program architect Bill Binney told Sean Hannity Monday that the intelligence community routinely listens in on Americans’ conversations without court-ordered FISA warrants.

 

President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama on Twitter Saturday of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election.

 

“Under executive order one two triple three, they do surveillance of everybody in the United States without warrants and that’s done through various upstream programs Fairview, Stormbrew, Blarney and also in cooperation with other countries in terms of collection worldwide,” Binney said on Hannity’s radio show.

 

“So it’s all done without warrants and that was testified to by Adrian Kinney and David Murfee Faulk, who were transcribing at Fort Gordon George. They were transcribing conversations between U.S. citizens with no warrant at all.”

 

ABC News reported in in early October 2009, Murfee Faulk, a Navy Arab linguist, said he and other NSA intercept operators in Baghdad’s Green Zone from late 2003 to November 2007 listened to hundreds of Americans’ private phone conversations.

 

“Calling home to the United States, talking to their spouses, sometimes their girlfriends, sometimes one phone call following another,” said Faulk.

 

“Hey, check this out,” Faulk says he would be told, “there’s good phone sex or there’s some pillow talk, pull up this call, it’s really funny, go check it out. It would be some colonel making pillow talk and we would say, ‘Wow, this was crazy.’”

 

Binney, who resigned from the NSA in 2001 and became a whistleblower, told Hannity, “I will put it this way. The IC is becoming more like the Praetorian Guard. You know, where they’re trying to determine who the emperor is and also influence what the emperor does, so I just think that this is getting out of hand.”

 

He added, “And I think, you know, President Trump is absolutely right. The intelligence community needs to be revamped.”

 

“Are you say that every American can be wiretapped against their will without any warning at any point?” Hannity asked.

 

“No. I’m saying they are,” Binney replied.

 

Hannity later asked, “And by wiretapping, that means what? Recording my phone conversations, taking my emails, my texts?”

 

Binney responded, “That’s correct, and also storing it for mining,” noting that the storage was also under the executive order 12333 section 2 -2.3C. The executive order, Binney explained, is the one President Obama “opened it up to all the other agencies in the intelligence community. Originally it was just restricted. The only ones that had access were NSA CIA and FBI.”

 

“So was Donald Trump being surveilled even without the FISA court?” Hannity asked.

 

“That’s correct. And actually … he’s being targeted now. They’re going into the database looking for data on him,” said Binney.

 

A spokesman for Obama said neither the former president nor any White House official ordered any surveillance on Trump when he was still in the White House. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday that he was not aware of a FISA court order to monitor Trump Tower.

 

“Not to my knowledge,” Clapper said. “I can’t speak for other authorized entities in the government or a state or local entity.”
