CIA Circles Wagons – Dispatches Media Narrative Engineers to Defend Interests…

After the DOJ/FBI advanced their defensive efforts last weekend via the New York Times and NBC, now the CIA/ODNI faction step forth with the same intents and purposes.

CIA defending journalist Natasha Bertrand has been participating in the multi-year PR effort which helped frame the CIA/ODNI talking points against President Trump, and she is deployed again in the latest effort within Politico.   The timing here is predictable.

(Via Politico) President Donald Trump’s obsession with former CIA director John Brennan could be on a collision course with an ongoing Justice Department probe as Attorney General Bill Barr takes a more hands-on approach to examining the intelligence community’s actions in 2016.

[…] Durham’s report is likely to land well after the results of an inquiry by the Justice Department’s Inspector General, who is examining the FBI’s applications to a secret court in 2016 and 2017 to obtain surveillance warrants on a Trump campaign aide.

[…]  “Is the IG report going to say we made mistakes? Yes,” said one of the former officials. “But it won’t say we did so for some nefarious purpose. So the report will be a dry hole for Trump and his supporters. Which is why [Barr and Durham] have now gone to this other theory, positing that the CIA was engaged in some rogue operation to overthrow Trump and therefore feeding the FBI bullshit,” he said. “It’s complete nonsense.”

“Haven’t you heard?” said another former FBI official, sarcastically. “Brennan was a puppet-master and we were just his puppets.”

Unfortunately, Ms. Bertrand gets too far over her defensive skis when she scribes defense and obfuscation that is laughable to anyone who followed the activity of CIA Director John Brennan when she writes:

[…]  Asked for comment, White House deputy press Secretary Hogan Gidley said: “John Brennan lied before Congress when he got caught spying on American citizens and lied about having Russian collusion evidence that never existed. The only way I’ve ever heard anyone in the White House mention him is as a punchline.”

It’s not clear what Gidley was referring to—Brennan has not been accused of lying to Congress.  (read full article)

Obviously Ms. Bertrand is counting on people not knowing that John Brennan was caught lying about his instructions to CIA operatives to spy on the networks of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.  Brennan later apologized to the Senate for that effort; but hey, what’s a little forgetfulness amid professional narrative engineering.

Additionally, in directly related matters; while remembering the ‘gossip-blower’ stems from the same CIA institution headed by Brennan while a member of the National Security Council; and while remembering the Washington Post is the primary outlet for the PR efforts of the CIA resistance du jour; the mysterious “white house insider” who penned an op-ed in the New York Times last year has now signed an anonymous book deal expand on the anti-Trump intelligence community narrative.

(WaPo) The author of an anonymous column in the New York Times in 2018, who was identified as a senior Trump administration official acting as part of the “resistance” inside the government, has written a tell-all book to be published next month.

The book, titled “A Warning,” is being promoted as “an unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency” that expands upon the Times column, which ricocheted around the world and stoked the president’s rage because of its devastating portrayal of Trump in office. (read more)

When CTH originally penned the term “The Big Ugly” we were directly describing a looming confrontation that would happen between President Donald Trump and the aligned interests of the deepest part of the Deep State.  Those interests are not along party lines, they are ideological interests directly related to the construct of the institutions of government and how those interests tied financially back to the Administrative State.

The DOJ, FBI, CIA, ODNI and State Department do not oppose the deconstruction efforts of Donald Trump as an outcome of bland institutional opposition.  Rather the institutions themselves are subsidiaries of a larger network that exists for the purposes of Washington DC as a business and financial enterprise.

The reason the DC system -writ large- is going bananas is because selling the influence of political office for financial gain is the custom and currency of DC affluence.

Selling influence and manipulating government action – both foreign and domestic – to enhance the financial interests of other participants, is a purposeful part of DC as a way to gain financial affluence.  In essence the U.S. government is used as a tool to accumulate wealth.  This process is at the heart of all Trump’s opposition.

Confronting this process is “The Big Ugly”.

      I’ve never thought corruption was limited to 3rd world nations. My eyes have always been open to the fact that politicians paid for to “win” positions than the salary for the position pays and, therefore, they were getting rich by other means related to the position. What is shocking me to the core right now is the utter pervasiveness, scope and scale of the corruption. It starts to feel beyond fixing. It starts to feel like the people who have been claiming civil war is the only way don’t sound as crazy as they used to.

    I mean, where the hell is Gina Haspell & why is she not cleaning out the CIA? Is she also part of the problem too?

    I am also confused over PT’s relative silence over stuff like this. Why is he not covertly working behind the scenes to clean out the stalls of the CIA?

    I would appreciate an education here because this is becoming harder & harder to understand from where (i.e. inside agency vs outside agency) this stuff is coming from.

      The various, legitimate missions of protecting this country and preserving the Constitution must continue WITHOUT creating opportunities for the enemies of freedom here and abroad. It’s easy to say we don’t need the CIA or FBI. But SOMEONE will still have to provide intel and federal law enforcement.

    Bob, just my personal opinion. Everyone who has been part of the swamp for any period of time both understands how it works and accepts the corruption. Trump is still an outsider to that. He doesn’t know who’s who when someone hands him a list of people to appoint to various posts. He just doesn’t have the institutional memory or experience. I believe this is the reason he has had so many “false starts” with various agency heads.

    In addition to not knowing himself who to appoint, he does not have a swamp savvy team around him, so he has had all of these “insiders” leaking about how awful it is. Is it really awful or is Trump just trying to run a ridiculous, fat, corrupt organization like a business. He also doesn’t have the tentacles or eyes and ears everywhere to warn him about possible missteps. The entrenched personnel are not going to risk their retirement to help out an outsider who they don’t believe will even finish one term.

    I believe the CIA, for example, is almost the same agency that Obama left behind. Gina Haspel is John Brennan without the baggage of having just plotted a coup against the President. She is just as likely to support illegal surveillance, nation building and regime change and protect the CIA against the President as Brennan would have been. Heck, his two best appointments, as far as we can tell from the outside, are Pompeo and Barr and we are all still waiting to see if they are patriots or swamp dwellers.

    The media loves to say “Trump’s CIA” or “Trump appointed ambassador” about someone who’s stabbing the President in the back (in order to suggest his own people are turning on him) but the fact is, he signed off to keep most of Obama’s State Dept. staff in place. He, like most of us who are outsiders, was naive about the fact that people with titles like “Career Foreign Service” and
    Career Diplomats” could end up being nothing but liars, corrupt schemers and thieves of our foreign aid and political nut jobs.

    Anybody who has ever worked around the government for a decent length of time knows that you don’t actually need a “puppet master” as this FBI official jokes. All you need is a trigger, and the entire wheels of the machine start turning. In this case the ICA and JFR are triggers, much like the dossier was a trigger for the FISA warrants. Once you pull the trigger, the surveillance starts, the investigations start, and the best part – because we’re all one big happy government – is that nobody ever questions the triggering event. It is taken as fact and quickly forgotten. That’s why Mueller never looks at it…it’s the trigger…and it is taken as a given to be right and proper.

    It’s like when your bank locks down all of your accounts when they suspect fraud. There’s no discussion of what prompted it…the system just shuts you down…and then there’s a long process to investigate what happened. During this time, you may or may not even be able to access your funds. In fact, the banks don’t really say this, but they consider you (the account owner) a possible source of the fraud until they can determine otherwise. All you need is a trigger, and the system cranks into overdrive.

    There’s a dangerous naiveté at play here where everyone in the Government Party at the worker-bee levels just assumes what is being fed them is truthful. That’s why this particular scandal only required maybe a dozen people to pull off…they had just the right people in just the right places to trigger the various investigations. Once the wheels were in motion, all they had to do was play the media fiddle which is pretty easy to do when the media is virulently anti-American, anti-Trump, anti-Trump-voter, etc.

    The real problem here is the left wing media. None of this could happen if you have an honest media that reports the truth.

    Fox news and a few online blogs can not compete against the full weight of CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NYT, WAPO, etc. If those MSM outlets are all in agreement on an issue, it is difficult to persuade people that their view is false. No one can even call them out as they will respond in unison that the other people are the ones that are wrong.

    So what is being done to address the real issue of media propaganda? Who is being called out and excoriated for their false and/or misleading reporting? Where is the “whistleblower” that will not only tell the truth but actually start reporting the truth? Where are the CNN newspeople that will challenge the people in charge at their networks that suppress certain stories or ensure the news is slanted to one opinion? Until we see honest people stepping forward, it will always be a battle.

      The more venues presenting this info, the better. This is not a competition to be the best support of our president; it’s creating a movement to insure PDJT’s reelection and expose the evil deeds of the Shadow Government, the Deep State, and the UniParty plus their advocates.

      Let’s not knock anyone who is trying to do their part in uniting behind this effort.

    “[Barr and Durham] have now gone to this other theory, positing that the CIA was engaged in some rogue operation to overthrow Trump and therefore feeding the FBI bullshit,”

    If it’s all BS, how come you had to feed it to the newspapers and Yahoo so they would pose and publlsh it as information THEIR investigation revealed and then you could parrot their story as an independent, unbiased additional SOURCE verification? You were caught red handed at and it’s proven that you and them were TOTALLY collaborating.

    How come you had to have Clinton’s head whore Blumenthal and Shearer feeding total BS from the middle east which you also utilized as another totally INDEPENDENT corroboration. Again, caught red handed!

    To call you slime would be a compliment compared to what you really are.

    There was significant commotion when Durham was said to be making plans to interview CIA people. Is it possible that after Durham interviews CIA people that he will announce intentions to interview Obama? I wonder what kind of commotion would follow from such an announcement.

    Yes, the corruption is deep, long term and tentacled.

    I listen to Bongino’s podcasts, rather than watching. In the podcast today at around minute 16, there is an excerpt from an interview with Brennan in Feb of 2018. To me Brennan sounded like he was lying.

    Interviewer: When did you first learn of the Steele Dossier?
    16:08-16:10 Brennan’s throat tightens up as he starts his reply.
    16:16-16:30 Brennan seems to recite be a memorized story
    16:30-16:35 Brennan offers answer to question not asked, “I did not know what was in there…” (Of course you didn’t know what was in there, John, because you hadn’t seen it yet. So, why would you say that? No one asked you whether you knew what was in it before the date you claimed you first saw it. Why would anyone ask such a strange question, John?)
    16:40-16:48 Brennan emphatically answers question not asked “It did not play any role whatsoever in the IC assessment….” Now, why would you emphatically say that, John, given that it has nothing to do with the question?

    I think that if even I can sense Brennan was lying, then he was already very nervous.

    During my 30 plus years with US Customs/CBP I turned in more than a few of high-level government grifter/parasites to IA, Office of Professional Responsibility, IG, and once to Congress. One of the scams involved millions of dollars, essentially extorted from an airline, and included people in other agencies.
    Of course, nothing much happens to the players, and that is, of course, a fraud upon taxpaying Americans.
    But what disturbs me far more, is that there are people at the top of our security agencies that would welcome another terrorist attack. And there are people at the top who would very much like to see Iran get nuclear weapons. These occurrences would bring them more resources $, and thus even more power, and with it more money-making opportunities.

    Ironic, no? The people who should be protecting our nation find it more attractive and lucrative to sacrifice it.

      I don’t “like” what you have shared, but know it exists at every level. “…there are people at the top of our security agencies that would welcome another terrorist attack.” Too true, but not many on Main Street know this. Your truth has to be spread across the land to people who really don’t want to hear that Mom, and apple pie, and the American flag aren’t honored any more, but stamped upon at every opportunity.

    It is bigger than we can imagine. What I do NOT hear anyone discussing is this is NOT just an American issue, it is a GLOBAL one. The media (owned by many of the same corporations are just as bad or worse in Europe. The illegal immigration flooding across nations where the sheep-like populace advocate for “Open Borders”. The IMF, the UN, The Committee on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergs, the Tri-Laterals, the secret societies, etc., are ALL the same people. It ALL has to be dismantled! As long as you’re up, might as well clean the WHOLE HOUSE!

    Natasha Bertrand is 26 year old. Keep this in mind when assessing her Brennan defense piece here. A young journalist just a few years out of college is firing off a piece absolving the United States CIA from any wrong doing, categorically labeling anything to the contrary as a “conspiracy theory,” and shamelessly spinning it all as an outlandish inconceivable inquiry that must — simply must(!) — be nefarious in origin and effect.

    My guess is that Natasha Bertrand’s professional career wouldn’t survive an audit. 26-year old Natasha Bertrand is plugged into the highest levels of the Obama admin CIA leadership and inside sources within the tightly compartmentalized group at issue here, AND they trust her as an outlet for their leaks? How does that happen to a very young reporter at the beginning of her career?

    Something is fishy here. Paid by Fusion elements to publish under her banner? (Possibly, even likely, but certainly 26-yr old Natasha Bertrand is the only “journalist” willing to publish pass-through articles, many of whom have more established reputations and careers than she does…). Personal relationship with someone connected to the events (similar to NYT’s Ali Watkins’ relationship with Wolfe? — wouldn’t surprise me; She is cute.). Personal or family connection to DNC players or CIA insiders? (I’d bet money on this one).

    “Washington DC as a business and financial enterprise.”

    The federal government is a perpetual multi-billion dollar opportunity for the organized crime network. In positions of power, members of the network skim off its wealth for the rest of their lives.

    There’s a long road ahead. 1. Barr, Durham, et al have to have the guts to seek indictments. 2. They need to do something to protect their prosecutions and President Pence in the event of DT’s removal by the Senate. 2. If Barr, Durham, et al fail, then there needs to be a second attempt at removing the criminal network in the following years. 3. After the criminal network is removed the federal government needs to be returned to its Constitutional limits. Otherwise, there will be a new criminal network within a generation. The Founding Fathers’ main point was that you aren’t going to be able to prevent corruption of this sort, which is why you need to keep the government small and limited.

    “Is the IG report going to say we made mistakes? Yes,” said one of the former officials. “But it won’t say we did so for some nefarious purpose. So the report will be a dry hole for Trump and his supporters.”

    The old favorite “no intent” canard.

    Very, very disturbing, but not shocking in the least.
