The Shadow Government Timeline…

CTH always falls back upon timelines to see the larger motives, intents and operational objectives of participants.  No matter which entrance hole you follow down into the labyrinth – eventually you end up finding yourself in the same chamber, the treasury.

Every motive seems to consistently boil down to money.

Ideology without financing is as useful as a pancake to paddle a canoe.

As such – extrapolating from, and adding to, a Breitbart Time Line:

shadow-government-clock

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking.

3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians.

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington.

  • Admiral Michael Rogers had a visit with President Trump on Friday, November 11th.
  • According to the Executive Order rule changes DNI James Clapper signed off on December 15th.
  • General Michael Flynn spoke to the Russian Ambassador on December 29th
  • Dec 29th 2016 – Obama announces sanctions on Russia

6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked.

The new rules, which were issued in an unclassified document, entitled Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the National Security Agency (NSA), significantly relaxed longstanding limits on what the NSA may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations.

These operations are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. Surveillances include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls, and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

The changes initiated by the Obama Administration in its waning days empowered far more agents and officials to search through raw intelligence data.

  • Jan 3rd 2017 – Loretta Lynch signs off on rule changes for phone taps.
  • Jan 12th 2017 –  WaPo reports On Phone Calls Anonymous Intel Sources
  • Jan 15th 2017 – VP Pence appears on Face the nation.
  • Jan 20th 2017 – Inauguration
  • Jan 23rd 2017 –  FBI reports nothing unlawful in content of Flynn call
  • Jan 26th 2017 – Sally Yates (acting DOJ) informs President Trump there might be a conflict between VP Pence’s stated TV version (was told by Flynn), and what Intel community communicate to Yates that Flynn actually expressed to Russia.
  • Jan 27th 2017 – White House counsel begins investigation to discrepancy.

7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties.

Other news outlets also report the existence of a multi-agency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.

8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was  part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama’s newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them.

Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation.

9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites “four current and former American officials” in reporting that the Trump campaign had “repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is “no evidence” of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks.

10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Postreports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event and once at a meeting in Sessions’s Senate office.

The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the “dossier” of ongoing contacts.

The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House “rushed to preserve” intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By “preserve” it really means “disseminate”: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies “to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators” and perhaps the media as well.

In summary: the Obama administration sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign; continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked to the media.

      the important thing with that investigation is that the FBI, through direct interference by Comey and not a valid warrant, took possession of the laptop out of the leaky NYPD and brought into the FBI, where low and behold they found nothing. Huma was given immunity for the fact that she originally lied to the FBI when asked if she turned over all computers that may have had classified information or used to exchange emails for Clinton. Comey actually helped Clinton there by taking the laptop out of the NYPD’s hands and delaying their investigation so that the press would not get any interesting tidbits before the November election.

    The first dot in the timeline is Clinton operative Alexandra Chalupa.

    “Manafort’s work for Yanukovych caught the attention of a veteran Democratic operative named Alexandra Chalupa, who had worked in the White House Office of Public Liaison during the Clinton administration. Chalupa went on to work as a staffer, then as a consultant, for Democratic National Committee. The DNC paid her $412,000 from 2004 to June 2016, according to Federal Election Commission records, though she also was paid by other clients during that time, including Democratic campaigns and the DNC’s arm for engaging expatriate Democrats around the world.
    clip
    “In an interview this month, Chalupa told Politico she had developed a network of sources in Kiev and Washington, including investigative journalists, government officials and private intelligence operatives. While her consulting work at the DNC this past election cycle centered on mobilizing ethnic communities — including Ukrainian-Americans — she said that, when Trump’s unlikely presidential campaign began surging in late 2015, she began focusing more on the research, and expanded it to include Trump’s ties to Russia, as well.”
    clip
    She said she shared her concern with Ukraine’s ambassador to the U.S., Valeriy Chaly, and one of his top aides, Oksana Shulyar, during a March 2016 meeting at the Ukrainian Embassy. According to someone briefed on the meeting, Chaly said that Manafort was very much on his radar, but that he wasn’t particularly concerned about the operative’s ties to Trump since he didn’t believe Trump stood much of a chance of winning the GOP nomination, let alone the presidency.”

    This is a long article chock-full of information that sheds light on how the Russia story got rolling and who was involved.

            When ISIS is running wild in Europe, where are the powerful weapons and strategies?

            But out in the media world, the think tank world, it sounds great.

            Russia stands in the face of all this. First, because it matches us in nuclear weapons, triad delivery systems, EW systems, Space-based technology and cyber warfare.

            So, we can’t be the UniPolar King of the World. Only part of the world. Most of that world is ocean far from people, nations and resources. And Energy, the key to all power resides massively in the ground of Russia. They have oil, gas, and most high tech minerals. They have the world’s largest reserve of fresh water. They dominate the Arctic. They are Christian.

            Those attributes make them a rival to ideologues who want the US to rule the globe.

            Those are some of the salient reasons.

            And for 17 years, they have been led by a brilliant team of leaders we have not been able to match. Putin, Shoigu, Rogozin, Lavrov and the Russian Intel and Military are first rate, and we have had piss-poor dolts. Clinton, Bush, Obama, Kerry, Panetta, Brennan, et al simply are not world class.

            So, the US demonizes Russians and Russia. It’s all the dolts have.

    Read this earlier today on Breitbart. CTH has already established this timeline several weeks ago. My first thought was – what is Levin trying to do now?

    The Issa et al reasons for calling for an investigation into this are obvious – to establish this Obama timeline in the Congressional Record and/or elsewhere.

    AG Sessions having “recused” himself yesterday, means any investigation initiated before 7 Mar 2017 may go to the Deputy AG. Pres Trump’s Deputy AG is to be confirmed on 7 Mar 2017. The current AG is an Obama/Clinton guy. (Read AG Sessions’ “recusal.” It does not say what the media says it says.)

    Oh yes – then there is the Levin attack – AGAIN – on CTH earlier this week (how many attacks now? 4? 5? 50? Ah furgiet). It is obvious from where Levin obtained Levin’s “timeline.”

    Levin also fired Mark Steyn earlier this week; Levin’s network rumored to have money problems; lawsuit filed this week by Mark Steyn.

    How do we know that things aren’t going on behind the scenes? I firmly believe that Potus Trump has his own internal intelligence team going back to his Trump Organization days. Neither he nor AG Sessions are going to publicly announce what they’re doing until it is time. Otherwise the named players would have time to destroy/remove evidence.

    This is also an excellent intelligence gathering time. Right now, the potentially targeted players are feeling confident and lax that they are getting away with things. I believe things are in stealth mode and will shock and awe when no one is looking.

The NYPD reportedly was set to make arrests the Saturday prior to the election and then everything was shut down (presumably because many on the Left assumed The Beast would win).

            Those attempting to take down Trump and Sessions are feeling threatened and acting desperate. The impression is that time is of the essence to them.

      An interesting piece of this scheme to me is where they got the probable cause for the FISA Warrant in October, and how they got it.

      Probable Cause and FISA in the same sentence? An oxymoron. Occam’s razor should be applied to each step we ( think we ) know occurred …

      What I think happened is that they first refused the request because of the ( presumably unprecedented ) ramifications of spying on a Presidential campaign in realtime and they sent it back demanding a narrower focus [ this is their procedure though it is seldom followed ]. Now they have plausible cover for “staying out of politics”. They were most likely concerned that the whole ludicrous and illegal and Orwellian FISA construct could be torn down if they merely rubber-stamped a request for such a hot potato.

      Then they ( Deep State, Obama, Holder, Clinton, Brennan, Clapper etc ) gathered everything they could, all of which is obviously pardon the pun, trumped up and resubmitted for FISA taps, and the court had their adequate cover to approve. Simple really. It normally doesn’t take much to get approval, so the extra mile here was a kitchen sink assortment of crap, the bogus dossier, the “prostitutes peeing on Obama’s bed” nonsense, Trump’s past aborted attempts at expanding into Russia, his campaign statements about “détente”, the fact that as official candidate he was now getting courtesy security briefings, and maybe perhaps something related to Blagojevich, and various crap fed to them from GOPe stooges, all of which the court can use as “bipartisan concerns” to approve the operation.

      Note that when it first was revealed that the original FISA was refused, something weird happened. Snowden immediately tweeted about this, implying it was some kind of illegal favoritism to Trump ( and many of us went straight at him on Twitter, calling him out for creating #FakeNews ) which is unbelievably suspicious to me because his alleged position is that of protecting people from the ever-growing deep state, and the FISA court for once demanded a narrower focus which is what he was demanding. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

      This last thing is interesting IMHO. I think that Snowden slipped here because his stupid tweet really undercuts his alleged reasoning for spilling all that info in the first place. It surely places within the realm of possibility that he might be a deep state asset after all, and the whole thing was theater. [ or he has finally cracked or someone is controlling his twitter, or they killed him, or … who knows ]. This Snowden comment really makes it cloudy. If he had supported that FISA refusal on principle this would make much more sense. Now, as many of us pointed out, we must question his entire purpose and remind ourselves that almost everything he released was not news to anyone paying attention.

      But then again that would make Greenwald either a dupe or a willing part of an elaborate deep state operation. It would also explain how an outside contractor ( Snowden ) situated far from Fort Meade could get his hands on stuff that should not be accessible offsite ( at least not in a sane secure system ). Snowden in Russia of all places? GOPe and (D)ummies calling for his execution? This last part really needs to be examined. It may be contain the answer to so many questions.

      October was when Comey announced the new dump of Clinton e-mails. The FISA Warrant was perhaps retaliation for the supposed Trump/Russian trigger of the dump.

    Using an aircraft analogy, in terms of righteousness and clear and affirmed respect for the law Obobo and the dems are piper cubs and President Trump is an SR-71 Blackbird.

    For all of my life, and I’m getting long in the tooth, I’ve always believed that people look at others through the prism of their own condition. A thief thinks everyone is out to rob him, a liar thinks everyone lies to them, and the person that believes their own lies believes everyone else does too.

    Hence the current attacks on Trump. It is that simple. That is all they know to do because they are guilty of the what they accuse him of.

    You get the picture. All neatly justified from a self-centered sociopath perspective. Believe you me, I have the sort of life long Shakespearean tragedy of having a sibling that fits the mold.

    When you watch the MSM circus on prime time, watch for:

    The non-stop high speed verbosity talk over everyone else without punctuation pauses getting louder and angrier by the second until they cut to commercial hothead talking points leftist.

    That is the dead giveaway, it is a mental disease, and it is a pandemic.

      I’m glad you mentioned the SR-71. Because after Reagan pummeled Jimmy Carter in 1980, the (D)ummycrats pulled the same, unbelievable, conspiracy circus that we are seeing today.

      When the hostages were released moments after the January 20 inauguration, the (D)emocrat chorus of kooks began alleging there was a corrupt bargain between the Reagan campaign and Iran ( yep, they actually said this ) and threw the kitchen sink at him. Everything from conspiracies about Casey as campaign manager being ex-OSS ( therefore he must have done something ) and right up to VP-candidate George Bush jumping into an SR-71 to fly to Paris or Iran to get them to hold off releasing the hostages until Reagan was sworn in with promise of a quid pro quo, in some small timeframe available to fit their kook theory.

      This insanity was revisited during Iran-Contra later on, when they tried to tie it to that White House operation, proving that they will say anything at anytime to satisfy their crazy ideas. The House and Senate actually entertained this insanity and billed us the taxpayers for their efforts.

      Folks need to fully understand that there are human beings among us who should never be allowed to reproduce, they are called (D)ummycrats. Do NOT let them date or marry your sons and daughters, do NOT employ them or give them money, do NOT let them have access to loaded weapons or sharp objects, and do NOT bother trying to reason with them. They are lost causes. Allow them to go extinct on their own which they are fully intent on doing through drug abuse, abortions, and homosexuality anyway. But most of all do NOT allow them access to nuclear or even conventional weapons by electing them to any office in the USA right down to tax assessor or dog catcher.

    This is the first time I’m bringing this up, but I might repeat the idea in future:

    Did President Obama authorize the CIA/FBI/NSA to investigate Trump Team for possible Russia tampering with election?

    Obama laid down the script that he thought the Russians were influencing the Presidential Election , and for national security, did Obama have secret Court sign off on using Top Level Spy programs/personal to illegally spy on Republican Presidential Candidate and his team.

    Isn’t this the type of thing that Nixon did, using COA personal and equipment to spy on Dems?

    If Obama used any agency to spy on Trump, isn’t this bigger than Watergate.

    We know that Trump’s phone calls to foreign governments was recorded and given to MSM. TRUMP was president when he made those calls, did Obama set up NSA team to monitor all his calls and bug the white house.

    Are there any Secret Service Agents that work for the NSA and pass on info?

        Following up on your Idea and mine, did Obama set it up so that Clinton would lose the election, so he would still be the “Head of the Dem party”, and set in place an Obama puppet (like his wife) in 2020.

        Obama is staying in Washington D.C. and other recent past presidents have NOT done that before, and has top aid just moved into his home in D.C.

        Obama had 8 years to put his people in place, with ultra-new spy equipment and powers. Nothing like this has happened before. Tech in the past , like in watergate was using OLD tech, computers and other equipment was horse and buggy type stuff 40-50 years ago.

        Having Obama on the witness stand would be very interesting, and I agree , first get lower grade people to turn state’s witness and PROTECT those people so they can testify against Obama.

        Scary stuff, right?

    The games afoot and it’s hardball, take no prisoners, I win, you loose rules. Letting Flynn go to placate Pence over some micro leadership issue was a big mistake. It showed weakness by Trump in not defending him in public and in finding a solution with Pence for Flynn to carry on. Now Sessions agreeing to recuse himself on the Clinton and Russia investigations is another sign of weakness. The weaker the response by Trump, the more emboldened the enemy becomes.
    An embattled Whitehouse searching for leakers from within its own staff isn’t a pretty picture either. I hope POTUS gets tough and is setting out rat traps and has McMasters on this to find the leakers and saboteurs.

    Events seem to move at high speed these days and trapping the rats and ridding the government of the Obama imbeds in the Intelligence agencies needs to be a priority. The DoJ and the FBI need to get the Clinton’s indicted for their money laundering treason and simultaneously go after the real boogeymen, Obama and Soros who are the men behind the curtain pulling the levers of the dark state working to destroy Trump and the USA.

    Once you see the deep states tentacles in media and govt, wow ! If you look at it from this angle, it would seem that the leftists are just along for the ride as the deep state moves the War on Trump, and the Free World, into the open. Pelosi and Schumer would then seem to be almost passively watching as the strings of media and government are pulled on their behalf all around them. This could explain why they keep getting caught out as being hypocrites on this. If they had participated in developing or implementing this campaign they would have already had thought of their own previous guilty acts. Instead, when the call to smear Sessions was sent out they all ran out to fling their handful of manure and didn’t stop to do their research.

      The HaMossad and other top intelligence agencies definitely have an unnamed substance which causes sudden deteriorating health like Breibart suffered.

      My guess based on the words of a single survivor of X number victims. Is that the substance was made by a pharmaceutical company as a cure for something but was found to cause quick organ deterioration. But is sufficiently flushed out of the body long before severe symptoms let alone autopsy happen.

    I’m thinking that Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, sitting with the Democrats during Trump’s speech wasn’t coincidence. I’m not doubting that Obama would have people spy on Trump, but it’s certainly plausible that Kislyak would leak details of a conversation with Flynn to hurt Trump for whatever reason.

    Russia may have similar goals to our own (eliminating ISIS, bringing stability back to the Middle East, etc.) but they’re still not an ally by any means.

    Let’s not forget that Obama changed the succession within the DOJ seven days before leaving office. Thankfully Trump was on it.

    “President Trump has quietly signed an executive order changing the order of succession in the Department of Justice, reversing an executive order by President Obama signed just last month.

    The order appears to be the first that Trump has not signed in a public ceremony. It’s dated Thursday — the same day Attorney General Jeff Sessions was sworn in — but was not posted to the White House website until Friday morning. The White House did not explain the discrepancy.
    Because the Senate has not confirmed any other top Justice Department officials, Boente will continue to be second in the line of succession under Trump’s order, followed by Zachary Fardon, the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, and Tammy Dickinson, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Missouri.

    Seven days before he left office, President Obama changed the order of succession without explanation to remove Boente from the list. Obama’s order had listed U.S. attorneys in the District of Columbia, the Northern District of Illinois and the Central District of California.”

      “Why would the Obama administration make this eleventh-hour change to the line of succession at the Justice Department? “At the time, I was told it was done in consultation with Trump transition,” Gregory Korte, the USA Today reporter who wrote the story quoted above, told me Thursday. “Looking back, that’s clearly not the case.”

      In fact, it seems like it was quite obviously not the case. The man Obama placed at the head of the line of succession is D.C.’s U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips, who is quite cozy with President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder. He is a former senior adviser to Holder, and he stayed on to work under Obama’s next AG Loretta Lynch before Obama appointed Phillips D.C.’s U.S. attorney in 2015. But Phillips goes way back with Holder—Holder first hired Philips in the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1994. It’s also safe to say that the AG offices in the Northern District of Illinois and the Central District of California are not hotbeds of Trump supporters.”

    The proper response by Pres. Trump would not be to just publicize the wire taps, as he is currently doing, but revoking the security clearances of everyone who saw that wire tap data.

    Whether they are currently or formerly employed by the Federal government – See Valerie Jarrett.

    Pres. Trump needs to publicly name the FISA judge that approved that wire tap and request the Federal Judiciary conduct an investigation and punishment.

    Then when the Judiciary doesn’t, because they are a club that does not punish anybody, then request the House of Representatives impeach the FISA judge or judges involved.

    The Democrats in the Senate would not vote to convict, but having the trial and forcing those Senators to publicly eat Obama’s abuse of power will help Red State Republican challengers in the 2018 Senate races.

    To be fair, it was a stupid joke to tell. Russia had the means, motive, and opportunity to screw with our electoral process, and tried to do it to both parties. It remains to be seen which party they have screwed with more.

A belated attempt at defining ‘election hacking’ (sic) as being “grave war-like” actions – which are the only grounds for FISA warrants. FISA violations – and perjury in the FISA warrant affidavits will be amongst the charges brought.
