Deep Space Thoughts, with Kamala Harris

There are two administration officials, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg, who are in a consistent state of competition with each other, about who can assemble 50 words into a 500-word speech.  The competition has been a back-and-forth contest for several years; however, Kamala’s latest entry might be hard for Pete to beat.  WATCH:

Now it might seem unfair to take just one-minute of a soundbite as representative of her latest entry in the Hall of Shameful Linguistics, but the longer version doesn’t change the cross-eyed, what the heck did she just say, dynamic.  See below.

When you look at the next segment, the alarming part is…. she’s reading it from a teleprompter.  Meaning, someone actually assembled these words in typeset for a speech, and Kamala is reading it.  LOOK:

To be fair, public speaking is not easy; however, public speaking is usually speaking.  I have no idea what these word assemblies would be called.

FBI Plants Docs at Mar-a-Lago

When 50 armed Gestapo occupied President Trump’s Mara-a-Lago home while he was away in New York, they demanded that his lawyer Christina Bobb, who was present at Mar-a-Lago when the agents conducted the search, disable the estate’s security cameras—ostensibly so they could ransack the place and plant evidence without getting caught on camera. Bobb wisely refused, and the FBI forced staff, guests, and Mar-a-Lago’s security force outdoors as they made entry. A housekeeper was purportedly held at gunpoint for refusing to identify herself. The FBI unlawfully detained everyone present, saying they were “not free to leave.”

We all know the official narrative: the FBI, under instructions from a criminal attorney general and a Trump-hating, Jeffrey Epstein and Hussein Obama-loving Judge, spent seven hours ransacking the president’s home in search of so-called secret documents he had allegedly taken from the White House, including, according to the Bezos-owned Washington Post, nuclear secrets, a claim Trump has rebuked.

With staff and guests corralled outdoors, the rogue agency executed its illegal search warrant, vandalizing the president’s property as it meticulously and systematically probed every cranny, nook, and crevice. In what can be described only as a display of disrespect for Trump, the FBI contemptuously rifled through Melania’s wardrobe, damaging clothes and two pair of costly shoes. They even brought in a safecracker who drilled Trump’s personal safe—only to find it empty.

A Mar-a-Lago security agent who later viewed security footage recounted to RRN the FBI’s reaction to finding the safe devoid of incriminating evidence.

“The primary cameras capture audio and video. They were pissed the safe was empty. One agent even said “Fuck, it’s empty” after viewing the hollow insides. I can’t say much about our security system because, if the feds see this, they could take advantage of info I divulge. I can say this: the visible security cameras make up only part of Mar-A-Lago’s security. In all footage, the FBI agents were conspicuously glancing up at the cameras. They were also looking for blind spots,” the source said.

The FBI he added, was especially interested in a storage closet in “Office 45,” so named as a respectful homage to Trump’s presidency. He said he believes (but could not confirm) the closet contained cardboard boxes and plastic bins of personal letters Trump had written to foreign dignitaries and heads of state, not nuclear secrets or other classified material. Nonetheless, the FBI seemed particularly interested in that closet and spent no less than two hours rifling through its contents.

“At one point three agents were huddled in that closet. Again, I can’t go into the depths of security mesures, but they probably believed they were out of the field of view of any cameras in Office 45. Well, they weren’t. In one segment, an agent appears to be pulling papers from the inside of his jacket and putting them in Trump’s belongings. The agent then pulls out those same papers and exclaims to the other agents, “Look what I found!” It seemed pretty clear. If the FBI didn’t find anything, they were going to find something,” our source said.

Both President Trump and his lawyers have scrutinized the footage, he said.

Playing Devil’s advocate, we asked the source whether he knew why Trump let Merrick Garland publicize the search warrant instead of releasing it himself.

“I can only guess. Trump is tactician. He probably figured the FBI would claim he doctored the search warrant. He wanted that bastard Garland to show his hand.”

DOJ Files Motion to Unseal FBI Trump Raid Search Warrant and Property Seizure Receipt

Yesterday, President Trump requested from the court that the (1) DOJ affidavit underlying the probable cause as well as the (2) search warrant and (3) property seizure report be made public following the FBI raid on his home in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Today, Attorney General Merrick Garland stated publicly the DOJ has filed a court motion to unseal the search warrant and the property seizure report; however, they would not release the probable cause affidavit.  Here is the DOJ court filing [DOCUMENT LINK]

.

Notice the DOJ filing is from the DOJ-National Security Division (DOJ-NSD).

The DOJ-NSD, was created by AG Eric Holder as the epicenter of DOJ political activity.  The DOJ-NSD held no inspector general oversight; it is a subsidiary targeting mechanism within the DOJ that originates issues related to the FISA court and other issues of “national security”, which allows Main Justice to have a star chamber of secret operations away from oversight or public scrutiny.

The original Trump-Russia targeting was triggered from within the DOJ-NSD.  The Carter Page FISA warrant, and all subsequent activity connected to the FISA court, come from the DOJ-NSD.

It is the combination of the DOJ-NSD and FBI Counterintelligence Unit, where we find every person and operation connected to the political targeting operations of Main Justice.  Domestic political targeting is done within this subsidiary branch of the justice dept.

Merrick Garland Will Give Press Statement on Trump Mar-a-Lago Raid at 2:30pm ET, Livestream Links

Attorney General Merrick Garland is scheduled to make a statement to the media, and perhaps answer questions, about the FBI raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida last Monday.  The anticipated time for the press statement is 2:30pm ET.  Livestream Links below.

UPDATE: VIDEO ADDED

Appearing nervous, Merrick Garland read carefully, very carefully, from a prepared script on the teleprompter.  He offered no extraneous remarks and took no questions. He spoke for approximately 4 minutes:

The DOJ has yet to release any documents related to the executed search warrant, nor the list of items taken from the Mar-a-Lago compound.

[Media] Months before federal investigators executed a search warrant this week on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, the 45th president was served a subpoena aiming to recover documents authorities believed he had failed to turn over earlier in the year, according to The New York Times.

CTH has a strong idea of the content of some documents.  We will be updating that information today.

Who signed the warrant for the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid?

by Kev Moore

The go-ahead for the unprecedented FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence was signed off on by a judge who, as an attorney, had represented associates of Jeffrey Epstein who were alleged to have assisted the wealthy pedophile in the trafficking of underage girls.

Judge Bruce E. Reinhart, a U.S. Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Florida, signed off on the warrant to raid Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago on Monday night.

Reports note that Reinhart had previously left his position as U.S. Attorney to represent clients in Epstein’s orbit.

According to the Miami Herald, Reinhart was hired on Jan. 2, 2008, to represent accomplices of Epstein who would later go on to receive federal immunity for allegedly trafficking underage girls.

Reinhart admitted to the Miami Herald that he had represented Epstein’s pilots; his scheduler, Sarah Kellen; and Nadia Marcinkova, who Epstein once reportedly described as his “Yugoslavian sex slave.”

As many of you know, Donald Trump once kicked Jeff Epstein out of his club after Jeff tried to solicit the teenage daughter of one of the members. Trump has known many unsavory characters over the years. One cannot be in big business in New York City without working next to the Mafia. Trump was not a law-enforcement officer or agent, so he minded his own business. I do not know if Trump knew of Epstein’s pedophilia prior to the incident, but he would not tolerate it at Mar-a-Lago. Epstein was banned for life from setting foot on Mar-a-Lago.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/08/04/trump-banned-jeffrey-epstein-from-mar-a-lago-for-hitting-on-girl.html

And now we see Epstein’s former lawyer, now a magistrate, sign the papers for a warrant to raid Mar-a-Lago! No bias there, of course.

Meanwhile, the FBI and DOJ continue to cover up the crimes of Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, John Podesta, and many others. The Hunter Biden laptop shows countless crimes on video, which have been posted online for all to see, but nothing is done about it. Democrats appear to be immune from prosecution, assisted also with a few RINO Republicans.#

Part 2 – Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump – The Evidence Within the Documents

In Part One we explained who, what, when and why around the modern construct of the modern DC system {Go Deep}.  Now we move into Part Two, the targeting of President Trump and the specific trail of documented evidence that exists behind the targeting.

It is critical to understand that foundationally our corrupt political system is built upon a network of surveillance.  It is through monitoring information and people, together with intercepting risk, that operations can continue to maintain a corrupt administrative state; what some might call the Deep State.

Within the system information is key, and the actions taken by DOJ and FBI officials are an outcome of this information.  As Edward Snowden explained, the surveillance state is critical to power retention. President Trump carried documents that outlined how this process took place as it pertained to his entry into politics, thus the raid to retrieve them.

There is a common misconception about why the FBI and intelligence apparatus began investigating the political campaign of Donald Trump.

During the timeframe of December 2015 through April 2016 the NSA database was being exploited by contractors within the intelligence community, specifically within the FBI, doing unauthorized searches.

On March 9, 2016, oversight personnel doing a review of FBI system access were alerted to thousands of unauthorized FBI search queries of specific U.S. persons within the NSA database.

NSA Director Mike Rogers was made aware.

Subsequently NSA Director Rogers initiated a full compliance review of the system to identify who was doing the searches; & what searches were being conducted.

On April 18, 2016, following the preliminary audit results, Director Rogers shut down all FBI contractor access to the database after he learned FISA-702 “about”(17) and “to/from”(16) search queries were being done without authorization.

Thus begins the first discovery of a much bigger background story.

When you compile the timeline with the people involved; and the specific wording of the resulting NSA review, which was then delivered to the FISA court; and then you overlay the activity that was taking place in the 2016 political primary; what we discover is a process where the metadata collected by the NSA was being searched for political opposition research and surveillance.

Exposing this method of surveillance is where the Trump phrase, “they are not after me – they are after you, and I’m just in the way,” takes on a massive amount of clarity.  Because, in the final analysis, what Trump experienced as a target of this system actually pertains to anyone, not just him.

Tens-of-thousands of unauthorized and unlawful searches were identified by the 2017 FISA court as likely extending much further than the compliance review period: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of the non-compliant queries since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 period coincided with an unusually high error rate”.

In short, during the Obama administration access to the NSA database was continually used to conduct surveillance.  This is the critical point that leads to understanding the origin of “Spygate”, as it unfolded in the Spring and Summer of 2016.

It was the discovery of the database exploitation and the removal of access as a surveillance tool that seemed to create the initial problem for the FBI political unit in Washington, DC.  Here’s how we can tell.

In December 2015 there were 17 GOP candidates, all needing opposition research.

However, when Donald Trump won New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina the field was significantly whittled. Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and Carson remained.

On Super Tuesday, March 2, 2016, Donald Trump won seven states (VT, AR, VA, GA, AL, TN, MA) it was then clear that Trump was the GOP frontrunner with momentum to become the presumptive nominee.

On March 5th, 2016, DonaldTrump won Kentucky and Louisiana; and on March 8th Trump won Michigan, Mississippi and Hawaii.

The next day, March 9, 2016, is when NSA security alerts warned internal oversight personnel that something sketchy was going on.  This timing is not coincidental.

As FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer later wrote in her report, “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.”  Put another way: attributes belonging to a specific individual(s) were being targeted and queried, unlawfully.  Given what was later discovered, it seems obvious the primary search targets, over multiple date ranges, were political candidates, specifically Donald Trump.

There were tens-of-thousands of unauthorized search queries; and as Judge Collyer stated in her report, there is no reason to believe the 85% non compliant rate was any different from the abuse of the NSA database going back to 2012, the same year the FBI collocated a workspace within Perkins Coie.

As you will see below the NSA database was how political surveillance was being conducted during Obama’s second term in office.  However, when the system was flagged, and when NSA Director Mike Rogers shut down “FBI contractor” access to the system, the system users needed to develop another way to get access.

Mike Rogers shuts down contractor access on April 18, 2016.

Coincidentally, on April 19, 2016, Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s wife, Mary Jacoby visits the White House.  Immediately thereafter, the DNC and Clinton campaign contract Fusion GPS… who then hire Christopher Steele.  At the tail end of that enterprise Michael Sussmann (Perkins Coie lawyer) is delivering material to FBI legal counsel James Baker, and DOJ official Bruce Ohr is serving as a secondary conduit of information from Chris Steele to the FBI.

Knowing it was federal “contractors”, outside government with FBI access to the NSA system doing the unauthorized searches, the question becomes: who were the contractors?

The possibilities are quite vast. Essentially anyone the FBI or intelligence apparatus was using could have participated.  Crowdstrike was a known FBI contractor; they were also contracted by the DNC.  Shawn Henry was the former head of the FBI office in DC and later become part of Crowdstrike’s leadership team, a rather dubious contractor for the government and a politically connected data security and forensic company.

We know from the Michael Sussmann trial that electronic data was extracted by Neustar, a federal contractor.  The head of the organization, Rodney Joffe, then used cyber tech resources from Georgia Tech to assemble the data and deliver a false report to the Clinton campaign of Trump-Russia connections.

FBI Director James Comey’s special friend Daniel Richman was also an unpaid FBI “special employee” with security access to the database.  Nellie Ohr began working for Fusion-GPS on the Trump project in November 2015 and she was a previous open-source CIA contractor; and now that we know the FBI and Perkins Coie were in a collaborative relationship, we can also see the DNC law firm as FBI contractors with similar clearances and access.

On May 31st of this year, Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) made an explosive announcement as an outcome of a whistleblower providing information to him and Jim Jordan about the FBI having a collaborative relationship with the Clinton/DNC law firm Perkins Coie.  {Go Deep} Specifically, the explosive element surrounds the FBI having a workspace within the DNC law firm that would have given Democrats an open portal into FBI databases for use in opposition research.

Additionally, remember the Sharyl Attkisson computer intrusions?  It’s all part of this same network of contractors.  Attkisson even named Shawn Henry as a defendant in her ongoing lawsuit.  Shawn Henry was in charge of the FBI field office and former Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was then head of the Virginia U.S. attorney office that was identified as part of the Attkisson targeting operation.

All of the aforementioned names, and so many more, held a political agenda in 2016.

It seems likely if the NSA flags were never triggered then the contracted FBI system users would have continued exploiting the NSA database for political opposition research; which would then be funneled to the Clinton team.  However, once the unauthorized flags were triggered, the system users (including those inside the FBI and sister agency the CIA) would need to find another back-door to continue… Again, check the timing and actions become transparent.

Immediately after NSA flags were raised March 9, 2016, the same FBI and CIA intelligence agencies began using confidential human sources (CHS’s) to run into the Trump campaign.  By activating intelligence assets like Joseph Mifsud and Stefan Halper the IC (CIA, FBI) and system users had now created an authorized way to continue the same political surveillance operations.

When Donald Trump hired Paul Manafort on March 28, 2016, it was a perfect scenario for those doing the surveillance.   Manafort was a known entity to the FBI and was previously under investigation.  Paul Manafort’s entry into the Trump orbit was perfect for Glenn Simpson to sell his prior research on Manafort as a Trump-Russia collusion script two weeks later.

The shift from “unauthorized exploitation of the NSA database” to legally authorized exploitation of the NSA database was now in place. This was how they continued the political surveillance. This is the confluence of events that originated “spygate”, or what officially blossomed into the FBI investigation known as “Crossfire Hurricane” on July 31.

If the NSA flags were never raised; and if Director Rogers had never initiated the compliance audit; and if the FBI political contractors were never blocked from access to the database; they would never have needed to create a legal back-door, a justification to retain the surveillance.  The political operatives/contractors would have just continued the targeted metadata exploitation.

Once they created the FBI surveillance door, Fusion-GPS was then needed to get the FBI known commodity of Chris Steele activated as a pipeline. Into that pipeline all system users pushed opposition research.  However, one mistake from the database extraction, likely during an “about” query, shows up as a New Yorker named Michael Cohen in Prague.

That misinterpreted data from a FISA-702 “about query” is then piped to Steele and turns up inside the dossier; it was the wrong Michael Cohen. It wasn’t Trump’s lawyer, it was an art dealer from New York City with the same name; the same “identifier”.

A DEEP DIVE – How Did It Work?

Start by reviewing the established record from the 99-page FISC opinion rendered by Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer on April 26, 2017. Review the details within the FISC opinion.

I would strongly urge everyone to read the FISC report (full pdf below) because Judge Collyer outlines how the DOJ, which includes the FBI, had an “institutional lack of candor” in responses to the FISA court. In essence, the Obama administration was continually lying to the FISA court about their activity, and the rate of fourth amendment violations for illegal searches and seizures of U.S. persons’ private information for multiple years.

Unfortunately, due to intelligence terminology Judge Collyer’s brief and ruling is not an easy read for anyone unfamiliar with the FISA processes. That complexity also helps the media avoid discussing it; and as a result most Americans have no idea the scale and scope of the Obama-era surveillance issues. So we’ll try to break down the language.

[scribd id=349542716 key=key-72P5FzpI44KMOuOPZrt1 mode=scroll]

.

For the sake of brevity and common understanding CTH will highlight the most pertinent segments showing just how systemic and troublesome the unlawful electronic surveillance was.

Early in 2016 NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers was alerted of a significant uptick in FISA-702(17) “About” queries using the FBI/NSA database that holds all metadata records on every form of electronic communication.

The NSA compliance officer alerted Admiral Mike Rogers who then initiated a full compliance audit on/around March 9th, 2016, for the period of November 1st, 2015, through May 1st, 2016.

While the audit was ongoing, due to the severity of the results that were identified, Admiral Mike Rogers stopped anyone from using the 702(17) “about query” option, and went to the extraordinary step of blocking all FBI contractor access to the database on April 18, 2016 (keep these dates in mind).

Here are some significant segments:

The key takeaway from these first paragraphs is how the search query results were exported from the NSA database to users who were not authorized to see the material. The FBI contractors were conducting searches and then removing, or ‘exporting’, the results. Later on, the FBI said all of the exported material was deleted.

Searching the highly classified NSA database is essentially a function of filling out search boxes to identify the user-initiated search parameter and get a return on the search result.

♦ FISA-702(16) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (“702”); and the “16” is a check box to initiate a search based on “To and From“. Example, if you put in a date and a phone number and check “option 16” as the search parameter the user will get the returns on everything “To and From” that identified phone number for the specific date. Calls, texts, contacts etc. Including results for the inbound and outbound contacts.

♦ FISA-702(17) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (702); and the “17” is a check box to initiate a search based on everything “About” the search qualifier. Example, if you put a date and a phone number and check “option 17” as the search parameter the user will get the returns of everything about that phone. Calls, texts, contacts, geolocation (or gps results), account information, user, service provider etc. As a result, 702(17) can actually be used to locate where the phone (and user) was located on a specific date or sequentially over a specific period of time which is simply a matter of changing the date parameters.

And that’s just from a phone number.

Search an ip address “about” and read all data into that server; put in an email address and gain everything about that account. Or use the electronic address of a GPS enabled vehicle (about) and you can withdraw more electronic data and monitor in real time. Search a credit card number and get everything about the account including what was purchased, where, when, etc. Search a bank account number, get everything about transactions and electronic records etc. Just about anything and everything can be electronically searched; everything has an electronic ‘identifier’.

The search parameter is only limited by the originating field filled out. Names, places, numbers, addresses, etc. By using the “About” parameter there may be thousands or millions of returns. Imagine if you put “@realdonaldtrump” into the search parameter? You could extract all following accounts who interacted on Twitter, or Facebook etc. The search result is only limited by the operators’ imagination and the scale of the electronic connectivity.

As you can see below, on March 9th, 2016, internal auditors noted the FBI was sharing “raw FISA information, including but not limited to Section 702-acquired information”.   Who were they sharing it with?  Perkins Coie?

In plain English the raw search returns were being shared with unknown entities without any attempt to “minimize” or redact the results. The person(s) attached to the search results were named and obvious. There was no effort to hide their identity or protect their 4th amendment rights of privacy; and database access was from the FBI network:

But what’s the scale here? This is where the story really lies.

Read this next excerpt carefully.

The operators were searching “U.S Persons”. The review of November 1, 2015, to May 1, 2016, showed “eighty-five percent of those queries” were unlawful or “non compliant”.

85% !! “representing [redacted number]”.

We can tell from the space of the redaction the number of searches were between 10,000 and 99,999 [six digits]. If we take the middle number of 50,000 – a non compliant rate of 85 percent means 42,500 unlawful searches out of 50,000.

The [six digit] amount (more than 10,000, less than 99,999), and 85% error rate, was captured in a six-month period, November 2015 to April 2016.  The timeframe of highest interest in the republican presidential primary.

Also notice this very important quote: “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.” This tells us the system users were searching the same phone number, email address, electronic identifier, repeatedly over different dates.  Put another way, specific person(s) were being tracked/monitored.

Additionally, notice the last quote: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of” these non lawful searches “since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 coincided with an unusually high error rate”.

That means the 85% unlawful FISA-702(16)(17) database abuse has likely been happening since 2012.

2012 is an important date in this database abuse because a network of specific interests is assembled that also shows up in 2016/2017:

  • Who was 2012 FBI Director? Robert Mueller, who was selected by the FBI group to become special prosecutor in 2017.
  • Who was Mueller’ chief-of-staff? Aaron Zebley, who became one of the lead lawyers on the Mueller special counsel.
  • Who was 2012 CIA Director? John Brennan (remember the ouster of Gen Petraeus)
  • Who was ODNI? James Clapper.
  • Remember, the NSA is inside the Pentagon (Defense Dept) command structure. Who was Defense Secretary? Ash Carter

Who wanted NSA Director Mike Rogers fired in 2016? Brennan, Clapper and Carter.

And finally, who wrote and signed-off-on the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment and then lied about the use of the Steele Dossier? The same John Brennan, and James Clapper along with James Comey.

Tens of thousands of searches over four years (since 2012), and 85% of them are illegal. The results were extracted for?…. (I believe this is all political opposition use; and I’ll explain why momentarily.)

OK, that’s the stunning scale; but who was involved?

Private contractors with access to “raw FISA information that went well beyond what was necessary to respond to FBI’s requests“.

So, someone using the justification of FBI “requests”, was exploiting their access to the FBI portal; and they were searching for material “well beyond” the justification of “FBI requests” the used.  Doesn’t this exactly sound like someone in Perkins Coie using their FBI portal access?

And as noted, the contractor access was finally halted on April 18th, 2016.

[Coincidentally (or likely not), the wife of Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson, Mary Jacoby, goes to the White House the very next day on April 19th, 2016.]

None of this is conspiracy theory.

All of this is laid out inside this 99-page opinion from FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer who also noted that none of this FISA abuse was accidental in a footnote on page 87: “deliberate decisionmaking“:

This specific footnote, if declassified, could be a key. Note the phrase: “([redacted] access to FBI systems was the subject of an interagency memorandum of understanding entered into [redacted])”, this sentence has the potential to expose an internal decision; withheld from congress and the FISA court by the Obama administration; that outlines a process for access and distribution of surveillance data.

Note: “no notice of this practice was given to the FISC until 2016“, that is important.

Summary: The FISA court identified and quantified tens-of-thousands of search queries of the NSA/FBI database using the FISA-702(16)(17) system. The database was repeatedly used by persons with FBI contractor access who unlawfully searched and extracted the raw results without redacting the information and shared it with an unknown number of entities.

The outlined process certainly points toward a political spying and surveillance operation; and we are not the only one to think that’s what this system is being used for.

Back in 2017 when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was working to reauthorize the FISA legislation, Nunes wrote a letter to ODNI Dan Coats about this specific issue:

SIDEBAR: To solve the issue, well, actually attempt to ensure it never happened again, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers eventually took away the “About” query option permanently in 2017. NSA Director Rogers said the abuse was so inherent there was no way to stop it except to remove the process completely. [SEE HERE] Additionally, the NSA database operates as a function of the Pentagon, so the Trump administration went one step further. On his last day as NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers -together with ODNI Dan Coats- put U.S. cyber-command, the database steward, fully into the U.S. military as a full combatant command. [SEE HERE] Unfortunately it didn’t work as shown by the 2018 FISC opinion rendered by FISC Judge James Boasberg [SEE HERE]

There is little doubt the NSA database system was used by Obama-era FBI officials and political allies, from 2012 through April 2016, as a way to spy on their political opposition.

Quite simply, there is no other intellectually honest explanation for the scale and volume of database abuse that was taking place; and keep in mind these searches were all ruled to be unlawful. Searches for repeated persons over a period time that were not authorized.

When we reconcile what was taking place and who was involved, then the actions of the exact same principle participants take on a jaw-dropping amount of clarity.

All of the action taken by CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey, ODNI Clapper and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter make sense. Including their effort to get NSA Director Mike Rogers fired.

Everything that comes after March 9, 2016, had a dual purpose: (1) done to cover up the weaponization of the FISA database. [Explained Here] Spygate, Russia-Gate, the Steele Dossier, and even the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (drawn from the dossier and signed by the above) were needed to create a cover-story and protect themselves from discovery of this four-year weaponization, political surveillance and unlawful spying.

Even the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel makes sense. (1) Mueller was FBI Director when this began. And (2) they needed to keep the surveillance going.

The beginning decision to use FISA(702) as a domestic surveillance and political spy mechanism appears to have started in/around 2012. Perhaps sometime shortly before the 2012 presidential election and before John Brennan left the White House and moved to CIA. However, there was an earlier version of data assembly that preceded this effort.

Political spying 1.0 was actually the weaponization of the IRS. This is where the term “Secret Research Project” originated as a description from the Obama team. It involved the U.S. Department of Justice under Eric Holder and the FBI under Robert Mueller. It never made sense why Eric Holder requested over 1 million tax records via CD ROM, until overlaying the timeline of the FISA abuse:

The IRS sent the FBI “21 disks constituting a 1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” The transaction occurred in October 2010 (link)

Why disks? Why send a stack of DISKS to the DOJ and FBI when there’s a pre-existing financial crimes unit within the IRS. All of the evidence within this sketchy operation came directly to the surface in early spring 2012.

The IRS scandal was never really about the IRS, it was always about the DOJ asking the IRS for the database of information. That is why it was transparently a conflict when the same DOJ was tasked with investigating the DOJ/IRS scandal. Additionally, Obama sent his chief-of-staff Jack Lew to become Treasury Secretary; effectively placing an ally to oversee/cover-up any issues. As Treasury Secretary Lew did just that.

Lesson Learned – It would appear the Obama administration learned a lesson from attempting to gather a large opposition research database operation inside a functioning organization large enough to have some good people that might blow the whistle.

The timeline reflects a few months after realizing the “Secret Research Project” was now worthless (June 2012), they focused more deliberately on a smaller network within the intelligence apparatus and began weaponizing the FBI/NSA database. If our hunch is correct, that is what will be visible in footnote #69:

How this all comes together. 

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 to research Donald Trump. As shown in the evidence provided by the FISC, politically motivated FBI contractors were already doing surveillance and spy operations. The Clinton campaign through people like Rodney Joffe (cutout) already knew everything about the Trump campaign. They were monitoring everything by exploiting their FBI relationship and the Perkins Coie location for portal access to the database.

However, after the NSA alerts in/around March 9th, 2016, and particularly after the April 18th shutdown of contractor access, the Clinton Team and DOJ/FBI needed Fusion GPS to create a legal albeit ex post facto justification for the pre-existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion GPS gave them that justification in the Steele Dossier.

That’s why the FBI small group, which later transitioned into the Mueller team, were so strongly committed to and defending the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.  The Steele Dossier was used in lieu of the ‘Woods File‘, underpinning the justification for the Carter Page Title-1 surveillance warrant.

The Steele Dossier, an outcome of the Fusion contract, contains two purposes: (1) the cover-story and justification for the pre-existing FBI surveillance operation (protect Obama and Clinton); and (2) facilitate the FBI counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign (assist Clinton and Perkins Coie).

An insurance policy would be needed.

The Steele Dossier becomes the investigative virus the FBI wanted inside the system. To get the virus into official status, they used the FISA application as the delivery method and injected it into a Title-1 search warrant against Carter Page. The FBI already knew Carter Page (he worked for the CIA); essentially Carter Page was irrelevant, what they needed was the FISA warrant and the Dossier in the system {Go Deep}.

The Obama FBI needed Fusion GPS to give them a plausible justification for already existing political surveillance and spy operations. Fusion-GPS gave them that justification and evidence for a FISA warrant with the Steele Dossier.

Ultimately that’s why the Steele Dossier was so important; without it, the FBI would not have the tool that Mueller needed to continue the investigation of President Trump.  In essence by renewing the FISA application in 2017, despite them knowing the underlying dossier was junk, the FBI was keeping the surveillance gateway open for Team Mueller to exploit later on.

Additionally, without the Steele Dossier the DOJ and FBI are naked with their surveillance (FISA-702) abuse as outlined by John Ratcliffe.

Knowing that Perkins Coie and the FBI were working together on this targeting operation, makes everything else make sense.

However, the involvement of official government agencies like NSA Admiral Mike Rogers, creates a paper trail.  Search query logs, notifications to Mike Rogers, notifications to the FISA Court, notifications to FBI officials of the suspension of contractor access, and subsequent FISA court opinions like the 99-pages from Rosemary Collyer, all of it creates an internal trail of government documents that tell the story.

It’s those documents that become a risk to the people who operate within the system.  In this example of government documents, the trail outlines the targeting of Donald Trump and that was what he continued to ask the ODNI, DOJ and FBI to release.

Frustrated by the lack of action, in March 2022 Donald Trump filed a massive civil lawsuit against the Clinton campaign and everyone involved in this targeting operation. [SEE LAWSUIT HERE]  “Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty,” the president states.

“Under the guise of ‘opposition research,’ ‘data analytics,’ and other political stratagems, the Defendants nefariously sought to sway the public’s trust. They worked together with a single, self-serving purpose: to vilify Donald J. Trump,” says one segment of the lawsuit.

All of the claims within the filing are substantiated by documents outlining the history of the events.  I’m not sure any defendant is going to be successful getting themselves out of the target zone on the lawsuit.  The suit alleges “racketeering” and a “conspiracy to commit injurious falsehood,” among other claims.

The basis for the evidence against the entire crew?  That was likely part of the assembly of evidence, the declassified documents at the heart of the battle, that were targeted by the DOJ and FBI raid.   That’s where we enter, Part III.

Inflation Moderates in July with Drop in Energy Prices, But Look Closely Food Prices are About to Skyrocket

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has released the July inflation figures known as the Consumer Price Index (CPI) [DATA HERE]. I’m not going to spend much time on the review because the big picture results are exactly what we expected, the appearance of a false inflation plateau, drop and/or moderation of inflation.

The July energy prices dropped significantly driven by a reduction in consumer demand for gasoline and fuel oil, which lowered prices.   We can expect a very similar outcome in August (report in Sept).

Most financial and economic media are reporting an “unexpected” drop in inflation, ex:

Prices that consumers pay for a variety of goods and services rose 8.5% in July from a year ago, a slowing pace from the previous month due largely to a drop in gasoline prices. On a monthly basis, prices were flat as energy prices broadly declined 4.6% and gasoline fell 7.7%. That offset a 1.1% monthly gain in food prices and a 0.5% increase in shelter costs. {link}

Most econ people will look at the price drop sectors and accept that consumer spending on durable goods and non-essentials has become a downward price point on key categories like vehicles etc.

This is the ‘stag’ part of the ‘stagflation’ (economy), or the new lingo; the ‘dis’ part of the ‘disinflation’ (consumer spending).

For the middle-class or working class, especially those families with young children, I would shake all those data points away, clear the table and look more closely at [BLS Table-2] to see where our eyeballs should be focused.

Look closely at all food group products that originate as “ROW CROPS” and/or “GRAIN”.   Just by looking at the current rate of price increase, you can easily see that all grain and row crop outcomes are going to explode in price in around 60 to 90 days.

The wholesale food supply chain is starting to price-in the future cost at market for products that have yet to be harvested.  Remember, ‘row-crops’ and ‘grains’ are the most energy intensive farming and carry the highest rate of energy use in the process, including fertilizer and diesel prices.  Row crops also carry the highest labor rate to harvest.

When you look at row crops and grains in the Table-2 breakdown of food prices the input price cost is easy to spot.

Annualizing the price outcomes, we see:

Flour at +60% in June and +38% in July.

Bread overall at +19% in June, and +34% in July.

Crackers at 12% in June, and +40% in July.

All grain-based categories are in this +35% to +50% annualized rate.  This is a good rough estimator for what is going to happen in the third wave of food prices we have been discussing.  These are energy cost increases we have to look forward to within current grain harvests.  Additionally, a global shortage of grain will only make this worse.

Eggs are also in this +50% range, and Coffee around +42%.

The same is true for row crops with potato prices in July up +40% (annualized).

SUMMARY:  Energy prices in July, Aug, Sept, moderate yet stay high – giving the false impression of inflation slowing as the overall economy continues shrinking.  However, by the time we get to Sept, Oct, Nov, all of those high farming costs are going to transfer from the field to our forks.  Food inflation in the last quarter of this year is going to be the urgent family conversation that takes the place of gas prices.

Trump Is The Only Possible GOP Candidate For 2024

There are several undeniable conclusions one should reach about the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home.

First, the FBI and Department of Justice are notoriously corrupt and filled with partisan actors (although this has been obvious for quite some time). Second, such “Regime apparatchiks” are doing everything in their power to disqualify Trump from running for president ever again. Third — and perhaps most important — Donald Trump is the only possible candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.

While leftists pat themselves on the back for their ingenious plan to take down the former president with a carefully engineered bureaucratic scheme — never mind that violations of the Presidential Records Act are common, rarely prosecuted, and never used against the regime’s darlings themselves, i.e., Hillary Clinton — they have no idea they just poked a sleeping bear. Or, as Japanese Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto put it in the 1970 film “Tora! Tora! Tora!,” “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

In other words, if Democrats thought Trump’s base was fired up — thanks to record inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, rampant crime, and a non-existent border, not to mention a well-supported conviction that the 2020 election was indeed “rigged” — the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago just poured fuel on that fire.

As a legal expert told Politico, “If they raided his home just to find classified documents he took from The White House, he will be re-elected president in 2024, hands down. It will prove to be the greatest law enforcement mistake in history.”  

The regime’s decision to take out Trump Banana Republic-style was woefully miscalculated. The GOP base has never been more unified against the establishment and its security-state minions as it is now — and never more sympathetic to Trump. For years they’ve watched Trump be targeted by the intelligence community, from the FBI falsifying FISA warrants to spy on his campaign to the DOJ peddling the Russia collusion hoax before and during his presidency. Thankfully, all these efforts have not worked, but its latest effort to disqualify him from running for president is the final straw. 

With the raid on Mar-a-Lago, the regime made Trump a martyr. To his base, Trump represents a symbolic repudiation of the partisan hacks that make up the intelligence community. The more the FBI and DOJ go after Trump, the more his base will invoke his name as a rallying cry. 

And therein lies the reason why Trump is the heir apparent to the GOP’s 2024 presidential nomination. Trump didn’t start the fight with the intelligence community, but he intends to finish it. None of the presidential hopefuls such as Kristi Noem, Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and, yes, even Ron DeSantis, bear the same battle scars as Trump with the intelligence community. The fight is his alone. And Americans of all stripes will rally to his cause.
