Trump Administration Release Statement on Intelligence Leakers…

The non-elected bureaucratic and intelligence gathering system known simply as “Deep State” has been attempting to undermine the Trump administration since the moment of the election.  However, the recent leaks surrounding the Manchester bombing have brought a new sense of urgency in identifying the participants.

WHITE HOUSE – The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling. These leaks have been going on for a long time and my Administration will get to the bottom of this. The leaks of sensitive information pose a grave threat to our national security.

I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

There is no relationship we cherish more than the Special Relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom. (link)

      iirc, publishing it is already against the law, just nobody has the stones to prosecute a media outlet for it. (pentagon papers case just ruled the gov’t couldn’t preempt media from publishing classified leaks, but didn’t say media was exempt from law’s consequences if they did publish.)

      This horrible Manchester leak case calls for a re-set of the standard and prosecute BOTH the leaker (if found) AND/OR publishers/reporters who published them. It’s national security critical (our ability to keep secrets from other countries).

      Then apply same standard to the Russia/Deep State leaks (leaker and media publisher).

    Trump is surrounded with traitors. Imagine having people crawling all over the place who are straining to overhear every word, combing through the trash, and reading facial expressions as giveaways. My understanding was that Obama switched all of these career political appointments to civil service in his last month, making it virtually impossible to fire them. Perhaps they can be transferred – does anyone know more specifics?

      You can make a department obsolete to get rid of employees.

      You can MOVE the entire department lockstock and barrel to another place. (I looked it up a few months ago and there are plenty of mothballed military bases in nasty places available.)

      You can form a ‘Turkey Farm’ and transfer selected people to that department.

      Heck if you can narrow it down to a department, just remove the security clearances of ALL the people in that department PERMANENTLY and transfer to counting paper clips or what ever.

      There are a LOT of creative ways to get rid of people without actually firing them. The ones President Trump does not know I am sure T-Rex will.
      …………

      Also light a fire under the rears of Congress Critters to get this bill onto President Trump’s Desk ASAP!

      Removal of Federal Employees for Misconduct or Performance
      It is called the Merit Act of 2017.

      For Text of bill: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/115/hr559/text

      Jan 13, 2017
      Status:

        G. Combs, you sound as though you have been through this before. I have, as well. I was a senior manager for a government operation that had to follow both civil service rules and collective bargaining agreements. It was very, very difficult to actually fire people, although not impossible. Usually if you kept the pressure up the employee would eventually give up and quit. But that was so incredibly time consuming and stressful and could create morale problems (Look at how mean Mrs. Jones was to Susie! I can’t believe they won’t approve her vacation request!) so every supervisor had a number of slippery tricks up the sleeve for managing the situation. It wasn’t ideal, but you had to find ways to deal with the dead weight and still get the job done.

        Of course, this is much more serious. These leaks are poison and many are illegal. I even sent the President an email about some of the things you suggest, G., because I was so concerned about what is happening.

      During the first year of a Civil Service appointment, it is relatively easy to remove a Federal employee. After one year it is much more difficult. As the old Nike commercial said, “Just Do It!”

      I skimmed through an article yesterday where the issue of Obama’s political appointees embedding themselves into career civil service positions was discussed. The Trump campaign was aware of the situation. It had happened in 2000 with Clintonistas embedding in place prior to GW Bush getting elected and for the same reason. It just wasn’t as in depth and sophisticated an operation as what Obama pulled off.

      Anyway, the Trump campaign knew about it and Chris Christie who was then the head of the Transition Team already had names from each agency of who had embedded themselves into the bureaucracy with the plan being to get rid of them.

      So, what happened? Well, Chris Christie got dumped as Transition Team leader because we heard he was larding the new administration with HIS loyalists, so then Pence took over. What happened next is anyone’s guess.

    Comey is in deep trouble:

    “…by early 2017, the (FISA) court became more concerned after the Obama administration disclosed significant violations of privacy protections at two separate intelligence agencies involved in the Section 702 program.

    The most serious involved the NSA searching for American data it was forbidden to search. But the FBI also was forced to admit its agents and analysts shared espionage data with prohibited third parties, ranging from a federal contractor to a private entity that did not have the legal right to see the intelligence.”

    Has the Trump admin. reversed the Obama admins decision (just before Barack left office) to increase the departments and personnel that are given increased access to classified material? It became widely disseminated just before Trump became POTUS. If not why not? What is the FBI and other Intel agencies doing besides investigating possible “collusion” when their own people have been colluding with the Dem media for months. The lack of charges seems deliberate.
    Why is the NYT’s still a liberal hero despite printing unauthorized leaked material that jeopardized the investigation into the slaughter in Manchester and caused a suspension of intelligence sharing with England?

      I think several of your questions are worthy of consideration except the last, “Why is the NYT still a liberal hero …?”

      They’re a liberal hero because they say liberal things, propound liberal causes, and attack anything conservative, especially President Trump.

      You seem stymied by the quandary that liberals don’t reverse their opinion after the Manchester leaks situation.

      That would require that liberals exercise logic and adherence to moral principle.
      Liberals engage in neither.

      No quandary after all, is there?

      Wolfe, I have wondered as well whether the Trump Admin has reversed the Obama action that permits secret surveillance info to be shared across all 17 intelligence agencies. This is the act they took a week or ten days before President Trump was inaugurated. I have watched and waited to see if there has been any mention of that being reversed and have not seen anything on this.

      I have no doubt of that. Valerie Jarrett, Zero’s Iranian handler, is living there, for crying out loud! It’s not for any purpose but to undo our recent election, Zero as much told us that, claiming to being prepared to “defend” “his” “accomplishments.

      I bet they have as sophisticated an intelligence gathering operation, and disinformation distributing operation, as can be imagined. They likely receive instructions directly from George Soros. H3ll, Zero himself could be in the loop on every one of these leaks. He’s the only US President in my lifetime that has earned a long drop on a short rope.

      Obama and Clinton’s Shadow Government did not stop with Comey and Farkus. There are committed treasonous seditionists throughout the entire apparatus of tbe Federal Government and likely many State Governors and officials too.

      THIS IS WHERE SPYING ON “AMERICANS” IS WARRANTED! Find these b@stards and send them to Guantanamo or straight to H3ll. Our Country is still on the brink of a Socialist Globalist Coup, a complete unraveling of the American Revolution and the irreversible loss of our Republic.

    But the media has committed a clear foarm of treason at a high degree . Very disturbing and unlawful. A law should in fact be created for such criminal acts and betrayal. A serious jail sentence or have them revoked off the air immediately!!! And some individuals of the media deserves a firing squad. And what makes it even worse is that u have Paul Ryan, And his ex – girl friend John McCain. The 2 of them alone makes u Vomit. How did they get back into office . I mean , was it a new and improved voting fraud . Because McCain clearly stinks!!! And I honestly believe Ryan is a straight dummy . A so called joker .

      I heard someone on Fox or Fox Business today (sorry, can’t for the life of me think who it was now) saying just like we are always saying here that it may well be the the WH itself is bugged by the Deep State and they don’t even know how the President could fix that situation.

      Further, whoever this was now was saying that when you go to work for the WH or in these senior positions you give up the expectation of civil rights with regards to surveillance and the like and that Trump could have every man jack of them frogmarched in for polygraphs if he hasn’t already.

      If I were the President, I’d have Keith his private security chief find me an expert in surveillance detection and go through the WH with a fine tooth comb. But as I write this I think our President is very bright, and very cagey. If WE think of this stuff, I am sure he has, also.

      I expect he is gritting his teeth and living in that WH knowing he is being watched and listened to because if he stops it they will know he is on to them. At the time of his choosing, he will pull the rug out from under them. I am sure of it.

      Furthermore, I hope he has whatever Gen. Flynn’s plans were for “restructuring the Intelligence Community” and is quietly seeing to it that they were implemented. Me, I’d take an axe to the whole stinking mess and start over. Foul, hideous, disloyal swamp creatures.

        Spectrum Analyzer…

        This is for broadcast transmissions from a circuit board. A simple model that detects transmissions. There are other, extremely sensitive analyzers that are portable that can detect and zero in on low and high frequency transmissions.

        The air is populated with radio waves at all times and they can each be identified and traced from point of origin, that is, listening devices can be found. Since the bugs are always listening and ready to transmit, they can located and neutralized.

        The following is a short video example of analyzing a circuit board.

        Keep in mind, this type of technology is commonly used in conducting wireless surveys when installing APs, or Access Points in a structure. An Access Point is the thing that takes the signal from the transmitter and broadcasts it out for a certain range. Think of your router that sends out a wireless signal. You want to increase the signal distance further throughout your domicile. You would set an AP on the ceiling, usually, and attach a cat cable that comes from the router to it to broadcast the wireless signal. This is but a very simplified explanation.
