The UniParty Congressional Swamp’s Meaningless Political FBI/NSA Hearing…

The Congressional Intelligence Committee  hearing today was everything we anticipated it would be.  Which is to say it was: insufferable political posturing, pandering and circular parseltongue swirling the drain of non-intellectual gobbledygook.

These types of congressional hearings are perfect feed pellets for media pundits to blather endlessly, wax philosophically, and engage in long-winded academic esoteric analyses contrasting the implied meanings of stop signs.  However, they are ridiculous for all other purposes.

That said, against the backdrop of the espoused intention, and with full acceptance of the historic UniParty Benghazi hearings driven intentionally into the pit of nothingness, prayerfully I’m not the only person who noted that not a single congressional panelist asked Director James Comey or NSA Mike Rogers if they personally were the person who unmasked the identity of General Mike Flynn in the “intelligence intercepts”.

Yes, that’s correct.  There is only ONE KNOWN Factual and CRIMINAL activity currently identified: the unmasking and leaking of Mike Flynn’s name to the media.

Yet not a single congressional intelligence committee member would ask Rogers or Comey -under oath- if they were the source of: A) “The Unmasking”, and/or B) “The Leaking”.

Stop for a moment and think about that glaring an intentional non inquiry against the expressed intention of the purpose of the committee.

UniParty.

Bat-Sh!t-Crazy-Frustrating.

The Deep State doesn’t exist they say.  Skynet is not self-aware they say.  Malware is only harmful if the Russians have it they say.  Pay no attention to the embed data code on your gadgets…

FBI Director Comey states his organization is “investigating”.  Fair enough, however – not a single congresscritter asked HIM if he’s the source of the unmasking or leaks.

♦ How can a congressional committee conduct an investigation if they don’t know if the primary witness, the lead investigator, is the source of the leaks?

♦ Wouldn’t the very first step, the actual basis of the foundation for the investigation itself, be to ensure the person conducting the investigation did not participate in the illegality of the conduct being investigated?

Think.

Avoid the shiny things.

Why wouldn’t congress ask this simple question?

Admiral Mike Rogers answers that approximately 10-20 people within his NSA organization had the potential to unmask and/or leak to the media.  Fair enough.

♦ Wouldn’t the first question as follow-up be to ask Admiral Mike Rogers if he is one of those numbered possibilities?

♦ Wouldn’t the second follow-up question, in an authentic inquiry, be to ask Mike Rogers if he is one of the possibilities with access to that information, then was he actually the person who unmasked or leaked?

If both Mike Rogers and James Comey admit they are in charge of two of the possible source organizations for activity that is expressly admitted to have engaged in illegal behavior,… then what affirmative confidence has either person expressed to congress to ensure the inquiring body that they personally were not the originating source?

Think.

There is NO PEA in this shell game of distraction.  Pay no attention to the google van driving down your neighborhood taking pictures.  It has emoji faces and stuff… and they won’t give that stuff to the NSA types.  Promise.  Swear.

Now, oh yeah… the shiny things:

    USPs are United States Persons.

    Who can access collection involving USPs?
    “UKUSA – a top secret intelligence-sharing alliance signed in March 1946…(and now)include(s) three other English-speaking countries – Canada, Australia and New Zealand…while the CIA and MI6 do share information they are not nearly as closely intertwined as their counterparts GCHQ and NSA. They deal in…signals intelligence (SIGINT), which deals with communications…(they) do not target each other’s nationals without permission.”
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-24715168

    Why do we assume the Flynn leaker came only from the USA intel agencies? Could they not also have come from GCHQ, MI6, etc, who passed the Flynn call info to U.S. persons, who passed the Flynn info on to U.S. reporters?

    702 is also mentioned in the Gowdy questioning. 702 is mass surveillance, involved with the Patriot Act.
    Limitations of 702 –
    “(3) may not intentionally target a United States person reasonably believed to be located outside the United States; ”
    https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/50/1881a

    To bypass U.S. laws and leave no electronic signature of anyone or any country accessing the NSA database, the Flynn info could have come from one of the Five Eyes, most likely Great Britain. Great Britain collects communications from the Dominican Republic. Flynn was in the Dominican Republic at the time Flynn’s phone call was intercepted (29 Dec 2016). This would have left Adm Rogers out of the Flynn phone call loop.
    Or not. Proving all this may be near impossible, especially without asking the correct questions.

    Two other items. Gowdy mentions six names, iirc, those persons pictured in the post above. The WaPo mentioned nine people.
    “Nine current and former officials, who were in senior positions at multiple agencies at the time of the (Flynn’s) calls, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.”
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/national-security-adviser-flynn-discussed-sanctions-with-russian-ambassador-despite-denials-officials-say/2017/02/09/f85b29d6-ee11-11e6-b4ff-ac2cf509efe5_story.html?utm_term=.f03476b7c0d3

    The Flynn phone call leak, which is illegal, is different from the FISA warrant, which targeted the server sending advertisements for the Trump Company and was located outside of Trump Tower. This server was most likely hacked and metadata changed to implicate Russia/Russians.

      Limbaugh on Comey Hearing: Message to Trump Is Stop the ‘Drain-the-Swamp Stuff’ or Face Impeachment

      Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):

      These hearings today, what happened last week and the week before that, what happened during the transition period…

      What all of this is can be explained simply by saying, “Look at how terrified they are in the Washington-New York establishment, of Donald Trump and draining the swamp.” The Never Trumpers on both sides of the aisle.

      There are conservative Never Trumpers today celebrating over the fact that Comey made it official that there’s an investigation of Trump and colluding with the Russians.

      These people know that there isn’t any evidence of this, but that doesn’t matter.

      What everybody in Washington supports is the smearing, the slander, and the libel of Donald Trump.

      And these hearings today? The FBI director, James Comey, is trying to save the jobs of a lot of people. He’s trying to save the careers of a whole lot of people — his included in, I think, an inappropriate way.

      So the objective is that Trump either stops this reform business he’s got, stops this drain-the-swamp stuff, and starts letting the Washington Republicans run the town again, or they’re gonna impeach him.

      That’s the message being sent today: “You either straighten up and fly right or you’re gone.”
      “We’re coming for you,” is the message of these hearings today.

      Since lying to Congress has become institutionalized, maybe it’s time to ding one of these guys. Even if the MQM claims it’s much ado about nothing, it puts them into the permanent record forever as a documented liar.

    There is a war going on between the white hats and black hats it appears. The white hats released the info that the CIA can hack into systems without leaving their fingerprints but make it look like someone else did it, Russia for example. It appears the CIA is acting rogue, and has been for a long time. It is more powerful than the president, answers to no one. It is time for Trump to defund these agencies and put them all together with good people in charge. Not holdovers from the Bushs, Clintons and Obama who are all globalists members of the cabal. WE are living in a police state when Samsung tvs, can listen to us and watch what we are doing on the couch with our husbands without our knowing it. This is a police state and Trump needs to dismantle it.

    The new script blames Russian ‘bots’ for flooding social media with llinks to evil sites like Breitbart and Infowars which mix fact and fiction.

    Sample
    — “They very carefully timed release of information to shift the news cycle away from stories that clearly hurt Mr. Trump, such as his inappropriate conduct over the years,” …

    — Breitbart, which has drawn criticism for pursuing a white nationalist agenda …

    Podesta is cast as innocent victim.

    The article suggests Trump got an unfair advantage from voter data supplied by the owner of Breitbart. The article does not mention that Mercer originally backed Cruz, and the same data gave Cruz no advantage.

    The article does not call unfair the fact that Google, Facebook etc were supporting Clinton on the other side, and Google and Facebook can control what people see

      Or that Donna Brazile was feeding debate questions to the Clinton campaign and Clinton’s campaign was happy to accept them. Collusion and coordination between the media and the Clinton campaign? Nothing to see there. Clinton’s campaign and her foundation had plenty of connections to Russia. Why isn’t Comey investigating them? Because she lost? Had she won, would Comey be investigating potential coordination between Clinton’s campaign and the Russians (or other foreign actors)? And how about investigating potential collusion between the Clinton campaign (if Bill counts as part of it) and the Obama DOJ in the person of Lynch? Another thing: If the universe of potential suspects in the felony leaking of the transcript of Flynn’s conversations is small but includes Comey and Rogers (among the few who can unmask citizens’ identities), then how is it possible for potential leakers to lead investigations into the leaks? Do we not need a special prosecutor to investigate those very serious leaks?

    These hearings are BS. Just like Benghazi and Hillary’s email hearings. They’re being used for political theater and media talking points to build a narrative against Trump.

    BTW – Trey Gowdy is a fraud. Why? Because, he was appointed by John Boenher to lead the cover up effort on Benghazi. Yes, that was Gowdy’s role as the leader of that committee. Anyone trusted by Boenher for that important responsibility is not to be trusted by us.

    Trump has to have a plan. A plan that has been years in the making. He’s getting the media, repubs, dems, and IC officials publicly on the record about surveillance, leaks, Russia/foreign influence on elections, Russian/foreign influence on our political/economic/intelligence/law enforcement processes, etc. I believe that he’s waiting for the right time (after Gorsuch, HCR, Tax Reform, key admin appointments) before he lowers the hammer on the Bush’s, Clinton’s, and Obama’s.

      Well, there’s a *LOT* of people that still believe in the Rule of Law; one way to make excising these people from the system is to push them into situations where no matter what they do, they lose. An excellent example would be to declare a state of invasion (from what I’ve read there’s about 30 million illegals in the US, which is about 10% of our population) and then issue orders to the Army (and Navy) to secure the borders with all military force. (i.e. “kill and destroy those that violate our border”) while citing Article 4, Section 4 of the US Constitution which REQUIRES the federal government to protect the States from invasion.

      When the Congress tries to act against that, arrest them for Treason. (The Congress is *explicitly* NOT immune from arrest Treason, by the Constitution via [IIRC] Art 1, Section 6.)

      When the Judiciary tries to “block” the actions, arrest and charge the judge(s) [even USSC Justices] with Treason and Sedition.

    Comey exposed himself as a democrat partisan in the Hearing yesterday. He may be technically correct that Obama didn’t “wire tap” POTUS during the campaign, but his FBI has been “investigating” Trump and associates since LAST JULY. There’s no way he could be “investigating” without SURVEILLANCE. That surveillance obviously started in OBAMA’S ADMINISTRATION, but Comey started the “investigation” either on his own because he WANTED TO or at the direction of his boss, Loretta Lynch.
    WHAT was his BASIS for STARTING that “investigation” in the first place? Why, after all these months (8) is he still “investigating” all these people? Was the PHONY TRUMP DOSSIER his excuse for obtaining routine surveillance from NSA in the first place? He certainly didn’t raise an eyebrow yesterday when all the Dems were gleefully reading the “information” contained in that DOSSIER.

    Also, like others watching, I was surprised at how self-assured Comey and Rogers were about what Putin was/is THINKING. He laid out Putin’s motive for election meddling as a personal hatred for Hilary Clinton and a clear preference for Donald Trump (and Mike Rogers backed him up). Wow. Our IC’s prescience is unbelievable! Literally.unbelievable.
