Protecting Deep State: Republicans and Democrats Refuse To Review Oversight Intelligence…

Following up on THIS EXPLAINER.

♦ Obviously Chairman Devin Nunes has placed himself outside the rails of Deep State.  ♦ The UniParty now wants him removed.  ♦ Nunes has become a risk.  ♦ Brutally obvious questions being ignored by media become focus of wider electorate.

2017 Congressional Intelligence Oversight “Gang of Eight”

Chairman Nunes is the only member of the Intelligence Oversight Gang-of-Eight who has reviewed the executive level intelligence product which caused him concern.  Nunes alleged in the last week he received evidence that Obama administration political figures gained access to unmasked American identities through foreign intercepts involving the Trump transition team between November 2016 and January 2017.

Media and congressional leadership intentionally skip the obvious questions:

♦ Why don’t the other seven members also go look at the same executive intel?

• Why, instead of looking at the same data, does the entire UniParty political apparatus and DC media now seem intent on eliminating Devin Nunes?

• Why doesn’t Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Mark Warner simply go look at the same executive intelligence product?

• Why doesn’t Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell or Richard Burr simply go look at the same executive intelligence product?

• Why doesn’t any member of the DC media ask such brutally obvious questions?

• Why is the DC UniParty both intent on not looking at the intelligence and simultaneously intent on removing Nunes, and getting the investigation removed from the House Intelligence Committee (Nunes/Schiff) and over to the Senate Intelligence Committee (Burr/Warner)?

• What is it about that Executive Office Level Intelligence Product the gang-of-eight are all so desperately afraid of?

• Why would the Senate launch another entire congressional intelligence inquiry, when the head of the Senate Intelligence Committees, Burr and Warner, are desperate NOT to see the intelligence product that causes Nunes such concern?

• What does that say about the intent of a committee when they refuse to even look at the intelligence reports they are supposed to be investigating?

These are all simple questions that hang above the political chaff and countermeasures.

These are also simply questions that explain why President Trump made this simple request:

Notice how in the three months since that request was made by President-Elect Donald Trump, only one member of congress has actually done what was requested.  That member is Devin Nunes.

Now look at what’s happening around Devin Nunes.

The brutally obvious reality behind these simple questions highlights something much more than the simple SWAMP.  The reactive behavior is not confined to current DC politicians or the media surrounding DC.

What we see now, is a response by multiple elements more aptly called “Deep State“.

Carly Fiorina, a former member of the CIA advisory board, calling for an independent commission seems rather odd when you accept the reality that current congressional oversight officials are refusing to even look at the current intelligence.

Odd, that is, until you realize such a request is a way for a Deeper State to protect itself.

Devin Nunes is the only official who has viewed the intelligence, therefore Devin Nunes is now a risk – he must be removed.  Similarly, the committee which Devin Nunes chairs is also a risk; because if Nunes is successful his committee will not be able to look away from the intelligence product(s) he puts in front of them.

Effective this week, the UniParty has deployed Senator Richard Burr and Senator Mark Warner as countermeasures. –EXPLAINER HERE

Richard Burr needs to play the role formerly occupied by: Darryl Issa, Jason Chaffetz and Trey Gowdy:

The countermeasure or controlled opposition role was originally assigned to Chairman Devin Nunes.

Unfortunately Mr. Nunes did not comply with his role, he took a greater loyalty to the presidency, and to his oath-of-office, than to the UniParty/deep-state, and thus Nunes must be removed in favor of Senator Burr.

Senator Richard Burr will now play the role of political countermeasures.

Nothing more.

Once you see the strings on the Marionettes, it’s impossible to go back to a time when you couldn’t see them.

    Plausible deniability. My guess is that this is so over-the-top disgusting, that those whose names were unmasked will most likely be livid that this has been happening. Until the reports are looked at, the Go8 – 1 will try to deny even having knowledge of this.

    Once it crosses the line where Schiff, for example, goes and looks at the report, any normal person looking at that report would be just as disturbed, if not more, as Nunes is, and would demand not only answers as to “why”, but action as well.

    Not only were Americans names unmasked, but it seems that their day-to-day activities were shared as well.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/03/28/wapo-cooks-up-another-nothingburger-with-a-side-of-muh-russian-dressing/#more-130568

    wolfmoon1776 put together three rumors
    1. Election night when Hillary was beginning to lose Pennsylvania, CNN held back reporting numbers. The rumor:
    Well, supposedly, at that point, the White Hats noticed massive data between CIA headquarters and those states. That was when they allegedly told the CIA “cut it out, or we send planes and bomb your HQ.” wolfmoon1776
    2. a rumor about Florida registration uploads
    3. A rumor that an Ohio server had been altered to aid Bush

    What if the fix was in so good they even bought a fireworks show but then Pennsylvania went wacko? It would explain deer in the headlights at CNN. What if the Black Hats were threatened by White Hats? That would explain a move to CYA

    That would explain why Obama was so off-guard after the election, racing through a bunch of things like EOs and EAs. He had NO reason to believe Trump could possibly win, because he didn’t know that Trump likely knew a LOT about Montgomery.

    OMG – and one more reason. Just realized this. After Trump beat them, and CIA got called out., Obama knew Trump knew things. He HAD to spy to see how much Trump knew while he still had access to the tools. Sneaky! wolfmoon1776

    Trump recited The Snake at many rallies. It was the song of the woman who rescues a snake only to get bitten by the laughing snake. At the time, I thought Trump was letting the little guy know he understood how they felt

    Now I believe when Trump recited The Snake slowly and loudly, he was talking to the DC establishment over the heads of his audiences. Listen to Trump recite that song. He was telling them “I know who you are”

    the Snake is tryng to bite Nunes

    • The only way anyone could have been so certain Hillary would win is if the election was rigged. Otherwise, it makes no sense. It was a Republican year; 8 years of one party is the norm…it always flips to the other party after 8 years. Just how it is. So for anyone to be so certain that Hillary would win means the fix was in. It is the only explanation.

      I have ALWAYS been of the opinion that the shock and awe on election night wasn’t bc of “polls” that told them she would win, but bc they knew that the CIA could control the outcome. I also believe that’s why HRC was lazy about campaigning. I had a friend in DC the night of the election. He’s well connected and said that the next morning at breakfast he literally had to convince everyone there that they were awake and that Trump had won bc they just couldn’t believe it. They were literally in denial. He had been there a couple days before election as well and told me that we needed to prepare ourselves bc HRC was going to win. I said bc of rigging? He said yes, that was his belief after listening to how sure people in DC were.

      One day I hope there is an honest book or movie about what went on behind the scenes with the white hats and black hats. I’m sure it was insane.

    To be fair to the “deepstate,” Devin Nunes has a source in the executive branch. It could be inside the White House or it could be inside an intel agency. Either way, the other members of the Gang of Eight do not know who his source is, so they cannot go look at the information. They would need to know what to look for and where to get it. This information must be viewed in a secure room (SCIF) and cannot leave the premises.

    The problem Nunes is having is one of security clearance. The only other person on the House Intel Committee with the proper clearance is Democrat Adam Schiff. Obviously, Nunes is not going to take him to meet a secret source that is exposing the Obama administration.

    The best Nunes can do right now is verbally explain what he saw to his Republican committee members like Peter King and Trey Gowdy. However, neither of them have the proper clearance to view the documents themselves. One must remember that not all members of the Intel committee have the same clearance. The chair and ranking are the only ones with access to it all.

    So Nunes is kind of stuck at the moment. There is no one he trusts that has the clearance to view the documents. Paul Ryan has the clearance (Ryan is on the Gang of Eight). However, Ryan is not on the Intel Committee, so he might not want to get involved in this during an investigation.

    One thing that might confuse some people is that not all members of the Gang of Eight are on the intel committees. The only other person on the House Intel Committee with the clearance is Adam Schiff.

      They don’t know where to get it. They would need Nunes to take them over to the Eisenhower building and show them the data on the secured computers. And to do that, Nunes might be exposing his source who wishes to remain anonymous for now. To even view this information, you have to be signed in, go through security checks, scanners, etc. And you cannot record any of it — it is for viewing with “eyes only” as they say.

      Of course, there’s the chance that Nunes and Trump are conspiring to make this all up. I doubt it, but it’s possible. However, I just don’t see Nunes making himself a patsy for Trump. He has a long career ahead of him and I just don’t see him risking it all over this.

Getting it handed directly to the committee by FBI and NSA eliminates any chance of an engineered single point failure.

But also this: Every Trump and associate was being monitored for intimate activities (to look for cheating, deviancy, etc). That includes the men, the women,…. and god help them if they tried to monitor youngsters.

    Paul in Denver2 hours ago
    Judge Nap stands by his claims!
    Before Vault 7, before Snowden, before Wikileaks, before the Patriot Act, go back to 1999 and refresh your background on the Five Eyes (UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) and the spying in country for each other, known as (and leaked by an Australian official who disapproved of the arrangement) Project Echelon. After it was leaked, it was denied and claimed shut down (just like in the Bourne movies) but reemerged as Project Carnivore. Under this arrangement 1200 UK agents in a building in the US could do keyword searches and intercepts, with the Five Eyes arrangement that if any ‘incidental information on US citizens’ was discovered, it could be passed on to the US intelligence community. The US had similar outposts in UK. This totally bypassed the restrictions passed after the Church Committee hearings, FISA court warrants, and laws prohibiting the spy agencies “spying on American citizens”.
    There is no paper trail, and what the Judge is insinuating, is that a Five Eyes arrangement still exists almost two decades later.
    After 911 and the Patriot Act, the IC has expanded authority, but no proof exists that the Five Eyes/Echelon/Carnivore arrangements no longer exist. Judge Nap insists his sources prove they do.
    and from another commenter Chiquita Banana1 hour ago

    The basis for the co-operation between the Anglosphere countries is tied to the 1948 agreement called the UKUSA Agreement.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UKUSA_Agreement

    National Security Policy in Australia and NZ revolves around this agreement. It really is the “tie that binds us”. It’s also one of the most important cold war documents.

We’ll manage without your lumber, oil and poutine. Go stalk somebody else’s kids, eh? Take off. Hosers.

      Boom. And right there you restore the rights of your citizens from being stalked by our so-called “Allies”

      I might not make a two-term President, or even one full-term, but by golly I’d rattle some cages and red pill the country like a wild man.

        This is probably going to be THE stupidest question yet, but I’m snoop/intercept ignorant. How or what mechanisms would be used to snoop on kids? The TV? Most are too young for telephone use. Maybe computer cameras?

          Our dear .gov partnered with Apple and Gewwwgle to access smartphone cams and mics and Samsung TV’s, even while they appear to be off.

          They call it security. Others call it Perverts Stalking and collecting Blackmail material.

          Don’t let this happen to you!

          Every boy growing up wanted to be Alexander Mundy or Mannix or Sgt. Saunders the like. All Alpha males.

          It started going downhill I’d guess in the late 70’s.

          It returned for the first season of “24” which quickly became neutered. I think Kiefer Sutherlands DUI was probably designed to delegitimize him as a role model who dispatched bad guys, many moslem, in an expeitious manner. I say this because connected people *never* get DUI’s. They get a courtesy ride home, unless it’s a witnessed wreck where people are hurt. Look at DC cops scooting Patrick Kennedy out of a potentially career ending bender.

          He was under the influence, NO FST administered.

          System is rigged and rotten.

          Anyway, the old shows were fun and wonderfully pc-free.

          Marilyn McCoo was beautiful.

    I don’t know much about Nunes. But, I don’t need to know much about him. Because, I don’t trust anyone that was appointed by the establishment to such an important position as chairman of an intel committee. That’s all I need to know.

    It’s all theater folks. Just like the investigations on Bengahzi, IRS, emails/server, 911, JFK, and on and on and on. It keeps us distracted while they move onto the next crime. It’s also meant to give us some hope that something will eventually be done to the criminals. They need to keep our pitch forks in the barn until we move on and get distracted by the next scandal. Rinse and repeat.

    Everything is now rigged against the people and for the powerful & connected few in gov’t, media, industry, religion, etc. It took them decades to get to this point and their tentacles are everywhere. It’s not fixable because the riggers won’t allow it. They will burn it all down before they’ll allow it.

    Sometimes, you have to burn down a forest completely in order to preserve it with renewed growth. We’re either going to have a controlled burn managed by Trump or an out of control burn lit by the establishment. There’s no other way for renewal for such an out of control, over grown forest.

      I agree with you about congress and their “investigations” but Sessions is in control of the DOJ now which is new for DC. There hasn’t been a real attorney general in decades and I am not so sure that these “investigations” by congress won’t go anywhere. Sessions can use any of the information gained in the show put on by congress. So we will have to wait and see. I think it needs to be burned down and start from scorched earth to rebuild.

    Sundance, you perform an invaluable service but there is one more thing you could do that would be a significant force multiplier. WHO ARE THEY? Can someone put a name with the labels. We need to know. If we can find out who they are, we can make our displeasure known to them. They are the enemy and they are right here among us. But, remember this; they do not live in castles. They believe we are sheep and treat us with contempt. I think they may have misjudged. I just want names. Where can we get the name?

    Why don’t the other members look at the intelligence? Because it might expose truths that contradict their narratives, and because they are more concerned with protecting their candy asses than they are with serving their employers, the citizens of the USA. I don’t think there are asshats large enough to fit the heads of folks like Smidge McConnell and Nancy Putrosi.

    Trump now must go on the offensive and use his bully pulpit. He needs to demand daily that the Congress and DOJ investigate the surveillance, unmasking and leaking for political purposes. So long ago that the Congress was demanding Trump show proof that he was under surveillance. Now that the proof is being uncovered the Congress does not want to see it………..

    It upsets me greatly when I as a lay person can view and read these articles and actually know intuitively there are many lies being told or set up to be told! This frightens me more than Russia! Now because Devin Nunes has answered the request of President Trump and in good faith is doing just what he is entrusted to do, there is fallout all over congress and this group of 8 whatever trying to put the screws to Devin Nunes. What the hell is going on in D.C.?
