What The Public Thinks About The FISA MEMO
THE VOTERS REACT TO THE FISA MEMO!
The Next Memo is Already Out, Read It: Prepared Statement DOE INSPECTOR GENERAL DRAFT 3.pdf
"So the dossier was bullshit - what a surprise. What is more concerning to me is the fact that it was known to be false by the FBI at the time, and yet they used the fucker to obtain a warrant to spy on Carter Page - and the FISA court granted it!
In other words, the Justice Department has just been caught knowingly using false information to justify them spying on and violating the rights of a US citizen. That's a tad alarming"
"This. This exactly!!!! I have been trying to explain this exact thing to everybody in my circles and they just don't seem to grasp the wild implications of what this all means....
"They" bought and paid for a false piece of evidence, then used that evidence in a secret court system (that is only supposed to hear terror related cases btw, but scope creep like always with a government program) that you cannot question, see the evidence against you, or even know that the court is investigating you, the secret court then investigates and tries you and most likely finds you "guilty" of whatever "crime" you have committed.... all without anyone ever knowing anything, seeing anything or even knowing it's happening... It's all done in secret. This goes against absolutely EVERYTHING the American ideal stands for."
" The FISA court is a rubber stamp. Always has been. It really doesn't matter what the evidence is that the FBI presents they always grant the warrant. They could go in there and tell the court we want a warrant to spy on Joe Blow because there was a full moon yesterday and the court would grant it (even if there wasn't a full moon yesterday, or if the moon was never full). The FISA court is a joke it's just to give some credibility to the FBI spying on anyone and everyone they want."
" That is more than a tad alarming. We had a revolution against our government in 1775 for exactly this kind of bullshit."
There continue to be questions about the substance behind the pending release of the House Intelligence Committee memo. With that release in mind, today it is worthwhile remembering this is the beginning of exposing the corruption within the DOJ not the end.
For several years the U.S. justice department has maintained an attitude of non-accountability within its ranks. The Obama years elevated that attitude and provided multiple examples of a DOJ gone rogue.
A complicit media enables that attitude by engineering a false narrative the U.S. Justice Department was/is an independent fourth branch of government; unaccountable to congress and entirely separate from the executive branch.
The House Intelligence Memo is simply using the example of currently known FISA abuse to open the door and show the U.S. electorate how corrupt this unaccountable institution has become. Behind that door are very uncomfortable realities for all of those who constructed the weaponized agency; and also those who have benefited from it.
♦When IRS head Lois Learner unlawfully sent the 21 CD-ROM’s containing the “Schedule B” filings of over a million Americans to the Obama administration, the recipient was the DOJ. (LINK) It was the DOJ who was chosen to utilize the political lists in their “Secret Research Project“. ♦When U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen demanded DOJ lawyers attend ethics classes due to their false representations to his court – he was highlighting a corrupt DOJ. (LINK)
♦When the case against the Bundy family was recently thrown out of court, it was the “gross malicious conduct” of the DOJ highlighted by the judge. (LINK)
This is the same DOJ who denied their own Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, the right to conduct oversight on DOJ internal action. (LINK – pdf) The expressed Justice Department intent in every action has been an attempt to remain unaccountable.
The U.S. Justice Department has become a rogue agency weaponized against it’s political opposition in almost every jurisdiction. This is the pervasive attitude, an air of ideological unaccountability, found rampant within every corrupt system.
So it doesn’t come as a surprise when the epicenter of that attitude in Washington DC balks at the concept of having oversight, and thumbs their nose at congress by refusing to turn over the underlying FISA application documents.
The House Intelligence Committee, Chairman Devin Nunes, has oversight over the entire intelligence apparatus, including DOJ/FBI counterintelligence and the FISA Courts. The House Judiciary Committee, Chairman Bob Goodlatte, has statutory oversight over the entire Department of Justice. The Senate Judiciary Committee, Chairman Chuck Grassley, has oversight over the federal court processes used by the U.S. Department of Justice. The Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, is the internal DOJ watchdog.
Unfortunately the corruption appears systemic within the entire justice system. This is the problem currently being confronted. This is also a system being defended by a political media apparatus who have benefited from seeing their opposition targeted. The American people became the threat to their system. The American people became their enemy. This outlook sounds stark, but this is exactly the way the DOJ has behaved.
We The People are in an abusive relationship with the Department of Justice.
Representative Mark Meadows puts it thusly:
THREAD: Because through all the “memo” news and headlines, it’s critical to remember why this issue is important and why it should matter to everyday Americans.
What this issue is all about: whether the Department of Justice and FBI, under President Obama, abused their surveillance authority against American citizens and political opponents. Put another way: was the Obama DOJ weaponized to spy on the Trump campaign?
Remember, in general, the DOJ and FBI spying on American citizens should automatically be met with MAJOR skepticism. That’s what the Fourth Amendment is designed to protect against. When those American citizens are ALSO political opponents? It should raise even more red flags.
So, take that principle, and look at what happened in this case. The DOJ spied on Carter Page, an American citizen. Red flag. Carter Page was also part of the Trump campaign. Double red flag. It should automatically raise questions.
Now, pause: we know about the Peter Strzok/Lisa Page texts, the “missing” texts, the McCabe concerns, etc. But this is about more. Focus on the dossier here–the political opposition research project put together by Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS, and the DNC by extension.
Quite simply: This infamous “Russian Dossier” was unverified political opposition research paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. If the Department of Justice used information like that as a key part of getting a surveillance warrant, it would be a HUGE problem.
Now, from what we’ve already known for months, it sure looks like that’s exactly what happened: that the FBI used that very dossier to get a warrant.
@Jim Jordanasked the FBI about it 2 months ago. I asked too. We asked for the FISA application, and the FBI wouldn’t show us. WATCH:
We’ve asked repeatedly for information from the FBI, both privately and publicly. We’ve openly told FBI and DOJ officials–if we’re wrong, tell us! Tell us what was in the FISA application. Let us see the document. But we’ve been stonewalled for almost a year.
So the bottom line is this: if, in 2016, the DOJ and FBI used an unverified, Clinton/DNC paid-for dossier to spy on American citizens (and political opponents) in the Trump campaign, that is as wrong as it gets. If that happened, Americans deserve to know about it. Period.
I know we live in a hyper-partisan environment, and I know it can be easy to disregard any inquiry like this as party politics. I understand that. But this is so far above politics, folks. Lady Justice wears a blindfold. Her scale is supposed to be balanced.
If any Department of Justice, Republican or Democrat, put their thumb on the scale for the sake of politics–it would undermine the very fabric of who we are as a nation. Americans deserve the truth, one way or the other.
Last point: If you remember anything from this news cycle, remember: your right as an American to privacy from your government spying on you is critical. It is foundational to who we are as a Republic. Never take that right for granted, no matter the political party you belong to. (link)
The release of the House Intelligence Memo is only the tip of the iceberg; the crack in the door to see just how corrupt the unaccountable Justice System became.
There are going to be many more revelations as the investigations into the FBI and DOJ continue. Combine that understanding with the pending OIG Horowitz report, and we have only just begun to see how bad this is…
The key aspect to begin restoring a system when it has fallen into the clutches of corruption, is to remove their internal image of unaccountability. The DOJ and FBI are part of the Executive Branch and they are accountable to congressional oversight. We need to constantly remind people of that, and push back against this insufferable media-generated narrative of the DOJ being an independent fourth branch of government.
MONICA CROWLEY WARNS: “As Bad As This Memo Might Be…My Understanding Is There Is Worse Coming Down The Pike” [VIDEO]
Feb 1, 2018
The FBI and Democratic Party leaders are in panic mode over the release of the FISA memo…
All the more reason to release it now!
After one long year of watching the mainstream media consumed with a fake Trump-Russia collusion story, it will be interesting to see how the media spins this news…
National Review reports that the FBI was guaranteed access to the FISA memo before its publication because of the rules of the process. Once the committee voted to disclose, that gave the president five days to object. During that five days, Trump’s own appointees at the FBI and DOJ would have the chance to pore over the memo and make their objections and policy arguments to their principal, the president, and to the rest of the Trump national-security team.
This tells us the real objection was not that they were barred from reviewing the memo; it is that they were barred from reviewing it on a schedule that would make it more difficult to derail publication.
Fox News reports that FBI director Christopher Wray reviewed the memo on Capitol Hill on Sunday — before the committee even voted to release it. Subsequently, two senior FBI officials — one each from the Bureau’s counterintelligence and legal divisions — reviewed the memo and “could not point to any factual inaccuracies” in it, according to an unnamed source who spoke to Fox.
There has followed the usual gamesmanship that intensifies public cynicism about “the Swamp.” Based on their review of the memo, the FBI and committee Democrats sought some changes. Though committee Republicans did not agree that these edits were necessary, they nevertheless agreed to make them. Democrats promptly used this accommodation — which they and the FBI had requested — to argue that publication should now be withheld because the memo has been “materially” and “substantively” altered since the committee votes. Nunes counters that the edits are minor and include mere grammatical fixes. Given that the people who are complaining about the changes are the ones who insisted on them, the chairman rejects what he calls an “increasingly strange attempt to thwart publication of the memo.”
FOX News contributor Monica Crowley appeared on FOX Business early Thursday morning and said this is the first of several memos to be released.
Crowley told the FOX Business News panel: “From what I’m hearing from my sources, this is about how this FISA warrant came into being and why and how it got approved and why and how it was used.”
Next, Monica Crowley really dropped an unexpected bombshell…
“I also understand from some very good sources that this is the first of several memos so as bad as this memo might be, my understanding is there is worse coming down the pike.”

DEEP STATE CRIMINALITY WARRANTS RICO ACT PROSECUTION AND PUNISHMENT
‘Russia-Trump Collusion’ Hoax:
The Ongoing Democratic Party
Crime Spree Exposes Deep State
As An International Crime Syndicate
“What you are seeing is unparalleled criminal abuse of
prosecutorial and investigative powers by the DOJ and
FBI, respectively. Countless Deep State co-conspirators
are actually carrying out a soft coup which could easily
turn into a violent coup d’état should their malicious
— Independent Political Analyst
If nothing else, the Democratic Party has shown the whole world that they are totally lawless and corrupt to the core. In so doing the Democratic leadership has repeatedly demonstrated their extreme loyalty to Deep State, not to the Republic.
The Obama Administration and Clinton Foundation, Comey’s FBI and Lynch’s DOJ, Brennan’s C.I.A. and Johnson’s DHS, Podesta’s 2016 Campaign and Wasserman Schultz’s DNC — all of them have shamelessly displayed a level of sheer criminality and flagrant corruption never witnessed before by the American people.
Quite remarkably, the coup plotters continue with the conduct of their crime wave — IN BROAD DAYLIGHT — as though nobody is watching.
MISSED POINT: The inconceivably reckless FISAgate scandal is exactly the type of deformed political progeny that such a dangerous marriage of Obama arrogance and Clinton ignorance was destined to produce. And, yet, it is this grave miscarriage of incestuous justice for which every U.S. citizen ought to be eternally grateful; because of FISAgate: The Democratic Party is finally over, Deep State in a free-fall collapse.
What really happened?
Everyone ought to realize by now that a large group of high-level government officials and political appointees throughout the Obama administration and Clinton Campaign got together to commit treason with the ultimate purpose of fomenting open rebellion.
Their initial goal was to somehow overturn the 2016 electoral college vote. When that failed dismally, the white-collar rebels sought to overthrow the President of the United States of America once Donald Trump took office.
In order to carry out these seditious schemes, the perps brazenly contrived a baseless accusation about Trump’s collusion with Russia to win the presidential election. This highly organized and criminal plot translates to a number of exceedingly serious violations of the nation’s laws. For example, the assorted crimes that constitute treason, which have thus far been committed against the POTUS and the American Republic, breach the U.S. Constitution as they do various federal statutes.
What these career political criminals really did, in order to escape the responsibility of their own criminal actions during 8 years of Obama lawlessness, was to accuse Trump of felony crimes that they themselves are guilty of.
Isn’t this what criminally insane psychopaths are notorious for doing? That so many of them hooked up around such an absurd scheme to falsely frame a POTUS is a testament to their collective and advanced psychiatric illness. Just take a look at the ringleader of this camarilla of deranged Deep Staters—California Representative Adam Schiff.
This treacherous conspiracy, which transparently concocted a fictitious narrative about Trump’s collusion with the Russians, amounts to nothing short of sedition. Because so many co-conspirators willfully committed treason with the explicit intention to overthrow an elected, and then sitting, POTUS, it’s necessary to prosecute each participant to the fullest extent of the law.
Toward that end, every traitor who participated in this massive criminal hoax ought to be expeditiously indicted and arrested to face a military trial. The dire necessity for this dramatic response is to send a message to all accomplices (particularly those operating under the radar) that an insurrection will not be tolerated.
That the seditious cabal continues to grow their criminal enterprise is quite shocking; nonetheless, they persist in the face of daily exposure. Hence, the ongoing neglect to apprehend these traitors only encourages their serial lawbreaking. Much more significantly, the Trump administration remains under the dire threat of a full-blown coup d’état.
CIA and the Purple Revolution
The nation is at a crossroads.
Surreptitious plots of treason and sedition, insurrection and rebellion are still being carried out each and every day. How in the world do these perps continue to act with such impunity even after FISAgate has been blown wide open?
Virtually every major organ of the U.S. Federal Government is involved, to varying degrees of course. Most of the co-conspirators are operating in the shadows and unknown even to the de facto leaders of this Purple Revolution. That’s because it’s being coordinated by rogue elements within the C.I.A. which always compartmentalize their stealth insurgencies, just as they implement these black ops on a strictly need-to-know basis.
The Mainstream Media (MSM) is the primary communication platform by which the insurrectionists speak to each other without being found out. Corresponding in code in this manner permits the collaborators to avoid the Internet and especially social media. It also prevents an incriminating digital record from being created which exists practically forever.
In view of these stark realities, the Trump administration must invoke the various legal justifications for shutting down the MSM. The establishment media has already broken several laws just as it has violated various FCC regulations. The contravention of various FCC rules and regulations alone serves as a lawful pretext to shut down the largest MSM platforms. For it is the blatantly subversive establishment media that is guilty of incessantly propagandizing the body politic against the POTUS.
The C.I.A. knows that it’s only a matter of time before a critical mass of U.S. citizens will support a coup by any means necessary. This is precisely how The Company (as the C.I.A. is known in intelligence circles) has implemented color revolutions the world over since its formation in 1947.
Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)
From nearly any interpretation of the RICO Act it’s evident that Deep State not only operates as an “international crime syndicate”, it also fits the definition of racketeering. Both the Clinton Foundation and 2016 Clinton Campaign functioned as two separate rackets under the overarching umbrella of Deep State.
The criminal conduct of the Clinton Foundation racket was well-documented by Peter Schweizer in his book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.
The Clinton Foundation was never indicted for so much Deep State criminality because it was set up as a CIA front company even though it’s an NGO. The Clinton Foundation: A Typical ‘CIA-Directed NGO’ That Is Completely Above The Law How could the C.I.A. ever permit it own institutionalized crime syndicate to be prosecuted?
Likewise, the 2016 Clinton Campaign is a perfect example of a quadrennial racket that first stole the primary from Candidate Bernie Sanders, and then ripped off hundreds of millions of dollars in campaign contributions. Even some of Hillary’s biggest donors wanted to know how the Clinton Campaign spent upwards of $1.5 billion.
KEY POINT: Politicos of every stripe have known for years that presidential campaigns are nothing but massive racketeering frauds perpetrated against a highly naive electorate. The campaign donors are fleeced every 4 years by an amount of money that distinguishes these as the most profitable recurrent rackets in the USA. Given that these political rackets only operate for a relatively short period of time, their true ROI exceeds every other scam in sight.
Clearly, Deep State is heavily involved in racketeering in ways far beyond these two examples of Clinton crime family rackets. The following list of “common racketeering activities” offers just a glimpse into some of the criminal enterprises and illicit schemes that Deep Stateroutinely engages in.
- A protection racket is a form of extortion whereby racketeers offer to “protect” property from damage in exchange for a fee, while also being responsible, in part or in whole, for the property damage.
- A fencing racket is where stolen goods are (indirectly) sold back to their original owner.
- A numbers racket is any unauthorized lottery or illegal gambling operation.
- Money laundering and other creative accounting practices that are misused in ways to disguise sources of illegal funds.
- Bribery; bribing police, politicians, and judges and other people if done to benefit crime groups.
- Burglary and Home invasions
- Mostly-extreme cases of academic dishonesty, such as in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal
- Loan sharking, when misused; the distribution of unregulated, “under-the-table” loans given on terms which are unlikely to ever be paid back
- Manufacturing and distributing counterfeit products
- Copyright infringement
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
- Cheque fraud (“paper hanging”)
- Check kiting
- Computer crimes if committed for financial gain.
- Insurance fraud
- Drug trafficking
- Human trafficking
- People smuggling
- Tax evasion
- Arms trafficking
- Truck hijacking (hijacking the load off the trucks)
- Car hijacking
- Cigarette smuggling
- Mail and wire fraud
- Securities fraud (Penny stock scams)
- Bank fraud if done to benefit crime groups
- Mortgage fraud
- Witness tampering
- Bid rigging, often construction kickbacks to organized crime groups that rig the bid to benefit themselves.
- Assault to beat up victims of crime groups.
- Skimming (fraud)
- Skimming (casinos)
- Fraudulent waste management operations
- Auto theft
- Operating chop shops
- Commercial sexual exploitation of children
- Bank robbery and Armor Car heists
- Jewelry and gems store heists
- Labor unions (labor racketeering)
- Pornography if done to benefit crime groups.
- Match fixing
- Strip clubs; some crime groups own strip clubs also.
Because many of Deep State’s black operations are black budgeted, there is probably not a single racket listed above that they do not run on a regular basis—worldwide. The C.I.A. alone has been associated for decades with arms trafficking and gun-running, drug trafficking and human trafficking, money laundering and counterfeiting.
The Trump Administration can let this perilous predicament fester for only so long.
The time is close at hand to take decisive action against every agent of Deep State and the numerous traitors throughout the US government.
At the end of the day, the C.I.A. will have to be terminated as President John F. Kennedy urgently proclaimed; and that was over 55 years ago. Likewise, the entire U.S. Intelligence Community must be eradicated of its rogue elements, and unlawful black operations and psyops must be shut down post-haste. The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Must Be Shut Down
The Mainstream Media will eventually have to be taken over and run as a public service utility of sorts with truly independent and balanced oversight. Exactly what that looks like remains to be seen. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, etc. will also have to be transformed into public social network utilities which are immune to being politically weaponized. The Mainstream Media Must Be Shut Down And/Or Taken
Most importantly, the U.S. Congress must be purged of all miscreants who have failed to honor their oath of office. Likewise, every Supreme Court jurist who fails to uphold the Constitution must be removed before they inflict more damage on the nation. Because the barbarians are inside the gate, the entire Executive Branch must be dissolved and reconstituted.
The Bottom Line:
Deep State’s Seditious Lawlessness Demands Immediate and Vigorous Prosecution
