Deep Weeds Beyond “The Big Ugly”…

Allow me to share right away that if you haven’t followed the entire fourteen months of discussion surrounding The Big Ugly, this is not a discussion thread you will enjoy.

This is more digestible by those who have a comprehensive understanding of the 2016 back-story behind the DOJ and FBI surveillance program of Candidate Donald Trump, then President Trump, and the FISA-701(16)(17) issues therein.

On this subject, as with a few in the past, CTH has presented intricacies beyond the current story.

Oddly, when this happens, and specifically because of our prior crowd-sourcing track record, we pick up ‘nodes’, operational insiders who are curious about how we construct and predict seemingly invisible action.

That said, this entire Justice Department surveillance operation did not start with candidate Donald Trump.  It has been going on, albeit with slightly different methods, for many years.  The past 20 +/- years have seen an exponential growth of the electronic use of U.S. Justice Department political surveillance.

Hundreds of federal and state officials are monitored, and the reason therein is not as riddled with complexity as we might think.  The motives are not deep, they’re shallow. Ultimately, it is all about money.  If an entity can know, in advance, what actions are going to be taken by State and Federal officials, an entity can make massive amounts of money.  Think about government contract bids submitted electronically as one example.

There are billions of billions to be made with the right information.  As such, there are millions of millions to be spent on obtaining that information.  Everything is up for sale.

Hardware and infrastructure is not installed by government; it is installed by contractors who work for government.  Hardware is not manufactured by government, it is manufactured by contractors.  Which is more valuable: the door key into your home or the pass-code for the security system?

The metadata collection Ed Snowden discussed was the tip of the iceberg.  Snowden was inside the system, he discussed how information was gathered.  Snowden never discussed who actually controls the weaponization of the information from the outside.  Who pays?

Who pays for access to systems?  Who pays the DOJ and FBI officials for access?  Who pays for the information.  Ultimately, who controls that information.  It is all connected.

A reasonable guess would be eight-out-of-ten federal politicians are paid by entities outside government for access to existing systems and hardware.  Just because the system is intelligence, and might have national security ramifications, doesn’t change the process.

The Awan Brothers should be a solid reference point.  Watch:

.

Just like lobbyists paying politicians to write legislation beneficial to those paying for services, so too are foreign and domestic entities paying for access to federal and state information.  This has been happening so frequently the actual scale of the problem is larger than any capacity of the system to self-correct internally.

Almost every entity within the current political system is dependent on retention of a pay-for-information network that has been built-out over the past 15+/- years.  The scope of the growth in selling political information began escalating with Bill Clinton, by the first-year of President Obama’s second-term the growth was exponential.

Look at the number of people occupying K-Street offices in Washington DC.

Consider the sheer growth volume of lobbying expenditures:

See the scale of growth?

♦ Selling Information – There are massive metadata files on all key public officials.  The higher the official is in the influence chain, the move valuable their data-file.   Within their file EVERYTHING about them is available for purchase.  What they do, what they purchase, who they call, where they are, who they lunch with, who paid, what they ate, where they travel, what they are working on, etc. everything is available.

If an entity has a financial stake based on engagement with one or more of those officials, it is entirely possible to purchase the file (whole or in part).   This is the type of data, the type of business model, that Glenn Simpson, Bean LLC, aka ‘Fusion-GPS’ engage with.

Every keystroke the targeted official enters, in business or profession, is available for purchase; so too is the same information available on every one of their colleagues and family members; and that purchase can extend to their friends and their friends families.

The Awan Brothers were simply brokers for this type of information.

It is a massive business.  The annual federal budget is $4,000,000,000,000.00 +/-

Four trillion is four thousand billions.

It is specifically because of the financial opportunity within this business model the United States Justice Department has been corrupted.  Institutionally corrupted, top-to-bottom.

It is almost beyond the scope of us to understand is how incredibly difficult this is to fix.

What Chairman Devin Nunes, Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Chairman Chuck Grassley and Inspector General Michael Horowitz are trying to do is no less than an institutional purge to the entire U.S. Justice Department, while simultaneously keeping it running.

Beyond what those reformers are attempting we have the U.S. State Department – same problem, same scale, same issues.  Secretary Rex Tillerson is only beginning to scrape the surface of the problem.

Imagine how much more challenging it would be if the corrupt institution currently being confronted by Nunes, Goodlatte, Grassley and Horowitz was spread over the entire planet?

Think about it?

That’s currently Secretary Tillerson’s challenge to manage and control…..

…. we haven’t even begun to fathom that yet.

    Of all the articles/updates Sundance has written, this is probably the one which should frighten people the most. Never, in a million years, could we have believed such selling out of the country.

    I’ve thought all along that this went back years – the spying and corruption; it didn’t just begin because of candidate Trump, but the scope and magnitude is something I can barely comprehend.

    And, as SD pointed out – fixing it is an incredible challenge. Almost reminds me of historic military battles, where against all odds, a victory was won by the righteous. Maybe that’s why Donald Trump’s presidency brought a sense, that finally, we have our George Washington.

    Why? Because it was George Washington who we needed.

      When you look at the history of the two World Wars it is like the Treaty of Versailles was designed to create the next World War. The Roosevelt administration promoting the communist revolution left half of Europe under the Soviet bloc and left us with Communists running China.

      The constant turmoil the world is in has led me to believe that it is all by design for profit and power. This mess we are in has its roots more than a century back and the evil that was pulling strings is generational and needs to be pulled out root and branch.

      lady, unfortunately most humans will sell their souls for money or benefits and this has been since time immemorial, sad to say. Greed and power motivate way too many humans and always will. Only those who love honesty and truth have souls that will love their country or world, but as time has gone by so many have become secularized and morals and ethics mean nothing if they live the high life. Ratting on others is not only in children but many adults as well. Threatening your life makes you more willing to become part of the problem. Money talks and all else walks. Trust today is an iffy thing as people have been convinced there is no God (Creator) but only today and actually that chaos still reigns. For those of us who follow God’s laws of morals, ethics and values we are many but need to be stronger and looking to defending this gift of our America and its Pres.Trump. We are many and we are strong and we will get done what has to be done as has been done over millennia and that is fight and remove those against us and our country and our beliefs and faith in God. So, we must stand firm and convinced and not wail and complain but be prepared…

    Meh, a lot of the DC ‘favor factory’ has been codified into law. For example, under the AIA (passed like 98-2) an administrative ‘court’ was created at USPTO. This so called court has jurisdiction, at any time, to revoke an issued US patent. This is basically the French system of patents (but worse because it mixes our Common law system of property rights with the EU system of ‘by your leave’ of the King). So now we have a patent system wherein a real court and a real jury can adjudicate validity and infringement and award money damages for infringement at law, that judgment can be appealed and sustained to a ‘finality’ wherein the doctrines of res judicata, issue and claim preclusion attach (in other words a final final judgment with all the due process required), but even after this the USPTO ‘court’ can invalidate the patent and in effect vacate the relief of money damage and/or injunctive relief. So guess who passed this law? That’s right google. And guess who is in charge of the new special Executive court? That’s right. A former google employee. And guess what that former google employee does where her private ‘court’ upholds a patent? in the first 3 ‘judge’ panel? That’s right, she creates another panel to get the results she wants — typically reversing a 2-1 decision (three member panel) with a 3-2 decision (5 member panel). Many believe the case at SCOTUS (Oil States) is actually much bigger than the now corrupted US patent system, and will address the larger Federalist Society issue – concerning the scope of the many administrative courts created in the last 20 years. Make no mistake people, these administrative courts are NOT the independent judiciary guaranteed under the Constitution. They are star chambers – wherein DC favors are dispensed – to the well healed and well connected. Judge Gorsuch is a huge believer in our Consitution and many court watchers think it could be 5-4 in favor of stopping the expansion of the administrative state and restoring the right to have property disputes adjudicated by an independent judiciary. (This is actually the issue in Hayburn’s Case, the corollary to the more famous Marbury v. Madison case). The amicus briefs are very good explaining our rights under the Constitution and how Obama and google created what was called the King’s privy court aka the ‘star chamber’ which is antithetical to our rights. Anyways, a good read for our Tea Party brothers and sisters, to understand how our rights were taken with this ‘complexity’ as Nigel Farage has argued.

  3. In order to make a big dent in this mess, we’re going to need our President the full 8 years, plus a MAGA president right behind him for two full terms. Additionally, we need to stockpile Congress with MAGA candidates and throw out the Uniparty shills who will not get with MAGA because they will not disengage from the udders of the multinational lobbying cash cow.
    This is where we come in. Find the MAGA candidates, vet them well, then spread the word like wildflowers. We can do this! It will get a little easier once President Trump is done annihilating the Dem state-run media.

    What we have to understand is, Obama never needed the FISA warrant to spy on Trump.

    Obama was already getting all the information they needed without the FISA warrant. So why did they obtain one?

    To CYA, as an insurance policy for the media, and since they couldn’t indict anybody in a court of law with mere 702 About Queries AND since they didn’t have enough information for a criminal warrant, a FISA warrant was used as the vehicle to transfer poisonous fruit into edible fruit that could be used in a court of law.

      They did not obtain a FISA warrant because the FISA court turned them down. They instead had people with high security clearances use FISA 702 Queries to get information on Trump and those associated with him. Yes you hear MSM and others say they procured FISA warrants but that is a lie and just chaff to obfuscate the truth of the matter. They never received a FISA warrant.

  6. 20+ years encompasses Republican control of Congress and President George W. Bush’s two terms. The Clinton Administration infested the federal bureaucracy with its cockroaches, no doubt there. But President George W. Bush and his Administration’s refusal to go after the massive corruption and crimes committed by the Clintons thereby allowed the corruption to metastisize,

    I always wondered why the GOP-controlled Congress & Senate mistreated and disrespected President George W. Bush, so badly. They squandered so much time and power they could’ve used to accomplish so much.

    Our federal government is thoroughly corrupt and both parties are responsible. So we’re not just up against Democrats, we’re up against corrupt Republicans, too. It’s appalling to realize and absorb just how many “public servants” went along with this corrupt enterprise.

    Sundance is so right – THOSE BUYING THE DATA need to be exposed! Those entities benefitting from doing business with the federal government must be held to account. Those entities given access to secret information about powerful government officials, House Representatives and Senators and their staffs, families, friends need to be exposed, as well.

    The federal government officials who gave access to these folks need to go to prison! HOW DARE THEY? In my wildest dreams, I never imagined our own FBI would give access to top secret data collected by the NSA to political opposition smear merchants like Fusion GPS and CrowdStrike. This is just staggeringly appalling.

    Everyone working for these corrupt bureaucracies needs to be fired. The federal employees unions must be disbanded and outlawed! Civil service regulations must be completely reformed. We must put an end to this corruption!

          or stand in the way that sinners take
          or sit in the company of mockers,

    Thanks for pointing this out Sundance. When Snowden made his revelations, my thought was, for every Snowden who would sacrifice his life in defense of the fourth amendment, there are at least ten, and more likely hundreds, who would secretly sell the information. You do not mention the biggest money-making opportunity: predatory hedge funds in search of publicly traded assets that may be overvalued, and which can be targeted with leveraged derivatives, bought while the value is high, then sold when it tanks for large profit. The NSA query function seems ideally suited for accumulating insider information about companies and assets of interest, and with obviously ineffective methods to maintain accountability (provided you can corrupt someone in the right place). Let’s see, who engineered both the use of derivatives to leverage this model (“the man who broke the Bank of England”), and has his PhD in “Reflexivity,” the dark arts of what causes investor opinion to value assets differently from their inherent value? The man who organized similarly inclined hedge funds into a lobbying group? The man whose funds gained 20% when the value of the world’s public markets lost half their value in 2008-09? The man who funds innumerable think tanks, foundations, pays for academic research supporting his manipulations, and buys politicians by the hundreds? The man who, according to the intercepted memo or email that James Comey used to justify taking the HRC decision into his own hands, asked for and got reassurance from Debbie Wasserman Schultz that Loretta Lynch would not let the Clinton server investigation go too far?

    It might be useful to think of the entire government data system as an information stock market. The real power here is for the insider trader who knows who is asking for what information and why. Who has the power to make a stock more valuable?

    Pharma lobbyist X is looking for all the phone calls that Congressman Y made concerning legislation around approval of limiting drug profits with the key search term being ‘limiting drug profits’. If Congressman Y is against limiting profits, then that’s time, wining and dining, and money saved, and lobbyist X can move onto the next congressman.

    But wait. What if Congressman Y knows that lobbyist X is looking for information on him? A call or two to some known proponents on limiting drug profits saying something like, “I just can’t decide how to vote on limiting drug profits‘ , and suddenly Congressman Y’s ‘stock’ value goes way up.

    All the same gimmicks in the stock market are at work here. The question is, if you wanted to bring down a company’s stock value, what would you say or do?

    Zerohedge reports that the FBI’s failure to retain Strzok messages appears to be contradicted by DOJ IG statements previously claiming to have asked for and received them. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-22/whos-lying-fbi-says-5-months-texts-lost-yet-ig-horowitz-says-his-office-received

    Either IG thought he’d received them, but then found big, unexplained gaps, and this lame excuse is in response to a demand for explanation, or those destroying evidence have again blundered bigly. [OR, the report of destruction was false, part of a sting and designed to stimulate co-conspirator conversation, clarifying what the constraints are on their future positions to take (“confess what is known, claim ignorance as to all else”), thus smoking out additional participants creating additional evidence of their guilt].

    Have been following CTH for a few months now and, as a foreigner, not knowing the key-players, not knowing the exact political structures, not following your media, … the Trump-“wire-taping” story was not so easy to understand and follow.
    Yet this article is very clear for me (of course using the basis of what I learned here). My first reaction: the puzzled faces and statements of our european politicians after the arrival of President Trump: “we don’t know what he is up to”, “we cannot understand his policies”, “he is unpredictable” … So what is now clear for me: their flow of information has suddenly been disturbed. …
    The other day, I was wondering, why the Atlantik-Brücke, “A non-profit association in service of German-American Friendship” (membership on invitation only) comments so negatively about President Trump:
    https://www.atlantik-bruecke.org/en/
    Obviously their operation has been jammed. But they are probably only the political face of the operation, only one visible part …
    The other thing, which came up for me, is that the basic principle is not so new, but the scope is now so gigantic with the sums at stake and with the tools available.

    Problems presented. Yet few solutions. What to do?
    It would appear that much of this is already being remedied. Just takes a wee bit of walking amongst the deep seaweeds. And paying attention, of course.

    When AG Jeff took office, a good part of AG Jeff’s early schedule included travel to, and speeches in, local FBI offices. AG Jeff’s talents do not include making speeches. Every speech was nearly the same. https://search.justice.gov/search?query=AG+Sessions+speeches&op=Search&affiliate=justice

    But each speech was specifically taylored to the local audience, celebrating local achievements, and mourning the loss of local LEOs KIA and Wounded In Action.

    Listening sessions were held with each local office. Programs were announced that assisted and enabled local FBI agents and local DOJ prosecutors to better do their jobs. More tools were created, and existing tools were improved. https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-department-announces-national-blue-alert-network

    AG Sessions found money in the DOJ budget to hire more DOJ prosecutors. These new DOJ prosecutors will be sent to local FBI/DOJ offices in the states, not D.C. https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/attorney-general-sessions-appoints-17-current-and-former-federal-prosecutors-interim-united

    Local cases that had never been permitted to proceed were allowed to move forward. Priority was given to human traffickers and MS-13 criminals. ICE agents were permitted to finally do their jobs. https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/attorney-general-jeff-sessions-announces-department-justice-s-renewed-commitment-criminal

    Believe it or not, there are more good guy LEOs and prosecutors than bad guys. The local good guys have been stifled for a very long time. The good guys have been now been unleashed, with support from AG Jeff. https://www.justice.gov/briefing-room
    Rumor has it that those local IAD guys are relentless against dirty cops.

    The mafia is a good example of how this operates. Yes, the mafia consists of bad guys who do bad things. But the local mafia guys make certain that their own local communities are protected and kept safe.

    A valid conclusion could be that the changes are being made locally, although indications are D.C. has begun their own local cleanup. For the past several decades the bad guys have been allowed to rule, dancing to D.C.’s tune. All it takes, though, is one trusted good guy to take over and the good guys come out of the weeds.
    We finally have that one trusted good guy.

    It appears the same thing is happening at the State Dept, by one good guy supporting countries with leaders who want to help and cleanup their own countries. Would that the State Dept bad guys would leave faster.

    This will take time, much time, hopefully not decades.
    Our current culture enables those who glorify themselves. Perhaps the good guys will begin to recognize a few of their own publicly. Pay attention to who are your own local good guys, and promote them publicly and loudly. More good guys will emerge and come forward.

    Ultimately, the good guys win.
    Word is, God is still in business.

      Oh yes, the money. Audits.

      The DOD is finally being audited. When SecDef Mattis took over, the DOD was still in the planning process, planning to layout the procedures to follow for an audit.

      Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children said screw this, and started the USMC audit anyway, sans planning, proceedures, policy, whatever. The audit is now proceding.
      Yes, they did. Really

      As usual, send in the Marines. We got this. Start the audits, everywhere. ‘Rah

    I have never been a conspiracy theorist but learning all of this makes me start to wonder if 9-11, while not being an inside job, was maybe allowed to happen so that we would be inclined to give up more freedom for more surveillance.

    Maxine Waters discussing Obama’s database…….the PERS theft of all Federal employees. Those were background checks with personal information on entire families. Fingerprints.

    There has been a distinct lack of interest in stopping the theft of the META data hacks of all our personal information. Obama did nothing to stop it, the Bush admin. didn’t do anything to stop it either.

    The last hack was the Equifax Credit Bureau hack of 143 million customers.

    Where did the information go? Did anyone, anywhere explain? Nope…..

    Reread T. Kascynski Manifesto concerning the unholy alliances between govt, academia, military/industrial complex in light of what is going on today. He deserves punishment for his cowardly acts however he saw something way back then that is just now being revealed. His writings were ridiculed at the time but make more sense with each passing week…the deep state made sure he would be silenced until the end of his days. He warned us all…we chose not to listen.

    The old adage….MONEY talks…SHIT WALKS!. $ 3.1 BILLION spent by lobbyists says it all, and that’s the money reported. WHY do you think these POS in D.C , for the most part, walk out as millionaires.The larger part of them are “legal” thiefs.

    “It is almost beyond the scope of us to understand is how incredibly difficult this is to fix.”

    Beneath the veneer of Big Ugly lurks a Bigger Ugly. It’s ugly all the way down.

    Globalism has helped erode the vectors fostering the national affinities that have traditionally kept many from such ‘parochial’ blood-and-soil crimes as treason and sedition. This is a deeply moral quandary. If selling out America amounts to little more than an information-arbitrage opportunity between two global cantons, where’s the moral beef? Can it even be called corruption?

    What does the military tell itself, you know, those chumps who still fight for a long overtaken notion of country? I guess they didn’t pay enough attention to their predecessor Smedley Butler. Oh well. You snooze, you lose your mind guarding the CIA’s Afghan poppy fields. Isn’t why the kids over there off themselves faster than the Taliban can get a bullet in? They’re in the belly of the cognitive dissonance Chamber of Lies.
