OBAMA’S SPYING VIA NSA TREACHEROUS: BETRAYALS REACH INTO ISRAEL’S FRONT YARD…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

While only those in la la land believe that allies don’t spy on one another, the fact of the matter is that certain revelations reach higher levels of treachery than others.

Consider the unending case of Jonathan Pollard, as he rots in a U.S. jail for 29 plus years, all for the crime of spying for America’s BFF, Israel. Mind you, not one spy – ever in U.S. history for similar charges and much worse – has received such an unjust and harsh sentence. This is a fact and it is well delineated within SEC KERRY’S DUAL LOYALTY: his close Iranian familial connection renders a conflict of interest. ILLEGAL.

Detailed within the above commentary, Washington’s (via the Executive branch, CIA, State Dept and Pentagon) hypocrisy and anti-Israel animus is on full display and encapsulated herein:

And this brings us to Jonathan Pollard, the American Jewish naval intelligence analyst who is now serving the 29th year of his life sentence for transferring classified materials to Israel.

Snowden’s revelations and the story of the CIA’s anti-Israel front group in Washington make clear that US indignation over Israel’s fielding of an agent in Washington was equal parts self-righteousness and hypocrisy.

There was nothing extraordinary in Israel’s efforts to gain information that its American ally didn’t wish to share with it. Allies spy on each other. And they use sympathetic locals to achieve their ends. South Korean Americans have been caught spying for South Korea. Taiwanese Americans have been caught spying for Taiwan, and so on.

US prosecutors prosecuted, and US judges convicted these agents of friendly countries for their criminal activities. The average prison term meted out to such agents of friendly governments runs from four to seven years. Their average time served in prison is two to four years.

Pollard was different not because of what he did, nor even, necessarily because he transferred classified information to Israel rather than to Britain.

Pollard was unique because he was an American Jew transferring classified information to Israel. And the discriminatory treatment he has received from the US government owes entirely to the same institutional anti-Jewish bias that caused the CIA to form the first anti-Israel lobby in Washington, just three years after Israel gained independence.……

Ever since NSAgate revealed many of its skeletons, foreign friends came to realize that they were very much in the dark. And what they thought they knew, re the rules of the spy “game”, was something much more insidious. 

Snowden’s revelations paves the way towards what Obama Inc. is really afraid of. 

As to the ultimate hypocrisy, well, exposing a heretofore secret (Israeli) military site of a trusted ally to the entire world, and then spying on it to boot, oh my, that tells the treacherous tale.

Uncle Sam is listening

Many Israelis were scandalized when documents released by Edward Snowden revealed that their best friend, America, had in 2009 targeted a former prime minister and defense minister for secret surveillance. But their political leaders were not surprised. For years, the United States has been running a complex eavesdropping and surveillance web to spy on friends and foes alike, including Israel. Satellites gather and transmit data to command centers, “informers” operate in the field and the most fertile sources of all are not human but the instruments which bug cell phones, tablets and social networks.

The US National Security Agency, NSA, exposed by its former agent the whistleblower Edward Snowden, can monitor these devices whenever it wants, just by beaming its instruments at a defined country, location, group of people or topics.
If, for instance, NSA electronically obtains a list of Israeli servicemen, their cell phone numbers and credit cards, its monitors can keep each one under constant surveillance.

The same applies to the personnel of Israel’s Air Force, Aerospace industry and other high-tech military manufacturers, such as Elbit and Rafael. Those lists may safely be assumed to be already in the agency’s hands.
To collect videos and images, American spy agencies only have to pan through such data gold mines as YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest, the last of which was recently crowned Content Curation. This is because Pinterest does much of the intelligence watchers’ work for them by assorting the material according to subject and field of interest and so unknowingly providing them with neat data packages.

The network catching on like wildfire of late is WhatsApp.

It is also a favorite of Israel’s elementary schoolchildren for swapping their thoughts and news.
A child may explain he or she can’t join the gang that afternoon because his or her father, an Air Force colonel or captain of a naval vessel, is just home from Crete or Sardinia. This will tell the eavesdropper that Israeli crews have been changed at those bases.

An Israeli officer driving his car only has to consult Waze for a short cut to his secret destination to reveal it to a clandestine watcher.

So who controls these armies of spies and directs their focus?

Those are murky waters which are virtually uncharted, as President Barack Obama implied obliquely in the comments he made at his end-of-year news conference Friday, Dec. 20. To still the uproar against indiscriminate spying on Americans, he promised a review and possibly reforms of the NSA, adding tellingly: “Just because we can do something doesn’t mean we necessarily should.”

Snowden’s revelations about the spies sitting on the phones of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Brazilian President Dilma Roussef have got Washington into hot water. They also revealed the negligence of their own security services.

However, Israel, to our certain knowledge, has lived with this unwanted American attention from its earliest days. In the 1980s, when the late Menahem Begin was prime minister, an odd-looking vehicle sprouting a forest of antennae stood permanently and quite visibly beneath his office window in Jerusalem.
His staff identified it quite frankly as a mobile American listening station. The measures used later were a lot more sophisticated. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and other Israeli officials, in their turn, had their e-mails intercepted regularly.

But after 2009, Washington introduced a high-powered, multilayered system of intelligence-gathering – especially against Israel, about which neither Snowden nor the Israelis have been forthcoming. This system had a single narrow focus: to pick up the slightest murmur or clue suggesting that Israel was about to launch an attack on Iran’s nuclear sites, which it had threatened to do without prior notice to Washington.

Listening in on the laconic conversations Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held with Ehud Barak was not enough. What the spies were told to look for was out-of-the-way conduct, such as an order placed suddenly for a large quantity of aircraft fuel, or the import of an unusual amount of emergency medical equipment.

At the high noon of this period of mistrust, US officers of the highest ranks began dropping in on Israel with increasingly frequency. Every week to ten days, some many-starred general or fast-talking Pentagon official arrived for a visit. They were told to ferret out any signs of Israel getting ready for an attack on Iran in time for Washington to step in and stop it.

These emissaries had two directives:

1. To maintain a tight grip on the prime minister, defense minister and chief of staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz and other IDF generals and keep them in sight at all times;

2. To pick up on their every nuance of speech or behavior for signals of hidden activity too subtle for monitoring devices to register.
The tempo of these visits tapered off when Washington concluded that Israel had given up on a military strike on Iran at that stage.

However, the spying did not.

DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources report that in recent months Israeli complained to the Obama administration about hotel suites which undercover agents had rented in Jerusalem at sites overlooking a secret military installation frequented by high Israeli officials for their most private consultations. The Netanyahu government asked Washington to stop this underhand surveillance. But meanwhile certain other – less friendly – Western spy agencies had caught on and took suites at the same location.
The conclusion from these incidents is that US clandestine surveillance of Israel is unlikely to stop in the foreseeable future – and not just against key figures and military personnel, but also involving economic and industrial espionage.

To combat the expanding exposure of its secrets, Israel has been introducing “sterile spaces” impenetrable to illicit penetration as well as using tricks to misdirect attention. However, the Americans and other interested parties keep on looking for holes in these barriers – and so the contest goes on.

As to NSAgate and whatever one thinks about Snowden’s actions, rest assured he shines a spotlight on the level of duplicity emanating out of the bowels of Washington.

NOT only in regard to foreign spying, but most pointedly in relation to Obama Inc’s violations of the Constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, amply demonstrated through the purging: an omerta re Islam + terror within America’s power centers eviscerates NSA’s domestic spying

So there you have it. As Muslim Americans remain out of bounds…off limits…hands off…everything else is a GO.

“FAST & FURIOUS” Revelations Squashed: First Amendment Rights Violated. What Are Obama & Goons Hiding? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

There are so many illegal actions swirling overhead on Capitol Hill it is nigh impossible to keep abreast, even if one is as tuned in as this blogger tends to be. Invariably, some poopings will fall through the cracks, yet it is not for lack of effort or relevant access.

Be that as it may, several remain a focal point, most intrinsically: Benghazigate, IRSgate, NSAgate, DOJgate as well as Fast & Furious. But before we catch up with one in particular it is instructive to take note of the following: if there is no “there there”, then surely opening up “this and that” to the public – and subjecting its aftermath to the light of day – should be warranted and certainly not hushed up. You think? Yet, if the opposite is the case, to hell with the First Amendment, and hiding under the guise of “security” and other made up out of whole cloth concerns suddenly becomes a mitigating factor. Give us all a break…so many tall tales…who can keep up!

Indeed, freedom of religion (NOT including the jihadist kind) and freedom of expression (but screaming fire in a crowded auditorium, for example, is hardly “protected” expression/speech) is sacrosanct, at least it is supposed to be in America. As such, some who retire from security-related posts are inclined to pen their memoirs, even though they are usually vetted by their former employers/superiors. No problem with that.

To be sure, no one at this site is suggesting that national security isn’t a critical concern, however, pointing out a program which ACTUALLY endangers U.S. interests – for whatever reason – must be fair game. If not, some who harbor less than an American agenda will continue as is and many citizens will be at risk. Well, in third world countries silencing whistle blowers is the norm, but is it the “new” normal in America? Hope not. Which leads us back to Fast & Furious and the censorship fight ahead.

ATF tries to block whistleblowing agent’s Fast and Furious book

1st Amendment battle over ‘gun-walking’ expose

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is blocking the main whistleblower in the Fast and Furious case from publishing a book for pay, claiming his retelling of the Mexico “gun-walking” scandal will hurt morale inside the embattled law enforcement agency, according to documents obtained by The Washington Times.

ATF’s dispute with Special Agent John Dodson is setting up a First Amendment showdown that is poised to bring together liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and conservatives in Congress who have championed Mr. Dodson’s protection as a whistleblower.

The ACLU is slated to become involved in the case Monday, informing ATF it is representing Mr. Dodson and filing a formal protest to the decision to reject his request to publish the already written book, sources told The Times, speaking only on the condition of anonymity.

The battle also could have repercussions on Capitol Hill, where the two lead investigators who helped uncover the Fast and Furious scandal, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, Calif. Republican, had written a foreword to the book, the sources said.

ATF officials declined Sunday night to discuss Mr. Dodson’s specific matter, citing personnel privacy. But the officials said it was possible for an agent to be rejected for publishing a book for pay but get permission to publish it for free. No manuscript for any Fast and Furious book has received approval for unpaid publication, however, the officials said.

Mr. Dodson was the first ATF special agent to go public in 2011 with allegations that his supervisors had authorized the flow of semi-automatic weapons into Mexico instead of interdicting them, touching off a scandal that toppled most of the top leadership of ATF in Washington and Phoenix. The controversy also led to angry recriminations in Mexico, which dealt with a wave of violent crime linked to the weapons, and high-profile congressional hearings that embarrassed the Obama administration.

Mr. Dodson began penning a book late last year about his role as the central whistleblower in the case and in June sought formal permission for outside employment that would allow him to engage a publisher and publish the book.

Documents show that one of Mr. Dodson’s supervisors in Arizona, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Carlos Canino, rejected his request July 19 and was backed in the decision by the agent in charge of the office, Thomas G. Atteberry, four days later.

Their rejection made no claims that the book would release sensitive or classified information or compromise ongoing law enforcement proceedings.

Rather, the supervisors offered a different reason for their decision. “This would have a negative impact on morale in the Phoenix [Field Division] and would have a detrimental effect on our relationships with DEA and FBI.”

The ATF general counsel’s office subsequently sanctioned the decision, all but killing the book project.

“An employee’s supervisory chain may disapprove any outside employment request for any reason, at any supervisory level,” ATF attorney Greg Serres wrote Mr. Dodson on Aug. 29, underlining the word “any” for emphasis. “The Office of Chief Counsel cannot approve outside employment requests in lieu of the supervisory chain’s disapproval.

“Therefore, your request to engage in outside employment is denied,” he said.

Separately, a top ATF official has been reviewing Mr. Dodson’s manuscript for any concerns about sensitive or classified information, potentially leaving open the possibility a process by which it could be published for free, a senior law enforcement official told The Times.

The gun-walking strategy — part of an undercover case called Fast and Furious — violated ATF’s long-standing policy to interdict weapons from straw buyers.

In all, ATF officials permitted more than 1,700 semi-automatic weapons to flow through the hands of straw buyers for the Mexican cartels, with many crossing the border.

Senior ATF officials hoped to trace the guns to crimes, then make a bigger case against the Mexican drug lords. The strategy, however, backfired when hundreds of the weapons began showing up at crime scenes on both sides of the border, including at the December 2010 murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

The Justice Department initially denied guns knowingly had been allowed to flow across the border, then months later reversed course and admitted the tactic had been used for more than a year. The change in story led to allegations of a cover-up.

The revelations exploded into public in spring 2011, catapulting Mr. Dodson and other ATF field agents who had objected into dual investigations by Congress and the Justice Department inspector general.

President Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. both claimed they knew nothing about the strategy until the controversy erupted, but the president has invoked executive privilege to block Congress from seeing certain documents, thus thwarting the completion of that probe. A court recently ruled in favor of Congress in the ongoing legal dispute.

Both the congressional and inspector general investigations concluded that the gun-walking tactics were poorly conceived and put lives in jeopardy. The fallout forced the ouster of numerous top officials, including the U.S. attorney in Phoenix, Dennis Burke, and the acting director of the ATF, Kenneth Melson.

The ATF, under new director B. Todd Jones, says it has imposed sweeping procedures to ensure gun-walking doesn’t occur in future cases.

The book dispute with Mr. Dodson, however, is not the first First Amendment controversy to erupt in the aftermath of the scandal.

Last year, Mr. Jones raised alarm in Congress and inside his own agency when he released a videotaped message that warned agencies that there would be “consequences” if agents blew the whistle on wrongdoing outside their chain of command.

The message led to claims that whistleblowing would be chilled, and ATF subsequently clarified Mr. Jones‘ remarks to emphasize that the agency would not interfere with legitimate whistleblowing activities.

Patriots are receiving blows from both ends, sort of like a double-barreled shotgun. On the one hand, a hammer effect is chipping away at one freedom after another. This is no longer debatable, it is fact-based. On the flip side, those who are tasked to protect citizens’ rights are doing no such thing. Consider the detrimental, runaway results from AG Holder’s fiefdom, and then juxtapose them against the military-style gearing up of police forces.

Does it appear that there is any official entity a citizen-patriot can reliably count on? Not from this laser-focused patriot’s lens.

DHS (Black) Employee, In Charge Of PROCURING Weaponry, Caught Inciting Race War! What’s Going On? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Most are familiar with the expression, ‘caught with one’s pants down’. Generally, it is used to paint the picture of a wayward spouse/boyfriend when found in a compromising affair, whether ongoing or a one night stand. To evoke even starker images – although highly nauseating – think of Anthony Weiner, as he (AND his hyper politically-charged, Muslim Brotherhood/Sisterhood connected diva wife, Huma Abedin) attempts to wipe away his stained behavior. NOT at this site.

Nevertheless, there are other usages for the above imaging, and its essence revolves around (seemingly) inexplicable behavior, but suddenly making sense via the ‘ahh’ (mental) light bulb. Such is the case when the following is absorbed:

Indictment Number One: Obama Inc. is hell bent on inciting a race war within America. Little more evidence is needed to secure said charge.

Indictment Number Two: Domestic upheaval, via a race war and targeting patriots/vetsis necessary for their end goals. 

Indictment Number Three: Plus, what is needed most to get the job done? Billions of rounds of ammo, and then some.

Indictment Number Four: NSAgate and its unfettered DOMESTIC spying excludes the Muslim America community – they are off bounds – so ordered by Eric Holder, the head of the Dept of (in)Justice. Is a political dissident’s list (read: patriotic Americans) their target? Yup.

Next stop: the meat.

DHS employee behind website promoting race war on paid leave

FoxNews.com
DHS_logo.jpg

FILE: U.S. Department of Homeland Security emblem is pictured at the National Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Center in Arlington, Va.

The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that an employee who runs a racist website predicting and advocating a race war has been put on paid administrative leave.
Ayo Kimathi, an acquisitions officer for Immigration and Customs Enforcement who is in charge of buying weapons and ammunition for the government, operates the website named “War on the Horizon.” It includes descriptions of an “unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race.” Kimathi is black.

Kimathi, who calls himself the “Irritated Genie,” told his supervisors that the website was set up to sell concert and lecture videos.

Kimathi has been with the department since 2009. His website criticizes whites, gays, those of mixed race, and blacks who integrate with whites. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups, earlier this week reported on Kimathi’s role in running the site.

The report showed the site’s content strayed far beyond concert promotion, warning about a coming race war. The website declares, “in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our Christian hearts can possibly count,” the Alabama-based SPLC said in its report.

One of Kimathi’s former supervisors at DHS told SPLC’s Hatewatch that, “Everybody is the office is afraid of him,” and that his co-workers are “afraid he will come in with a gun and someday go postal.”

The supervisor, who was not named, continued, “I am astounded he’s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”

Kimathi reportedly got the go-ahead from the government to create and maintain his website. That’s because as a law enforcement agency employee, he is required to get permission in writing if he engages in outside activities which includes everything from working a second job to volunteering.

The SPLC says Kimathi obtained official permission but did it by misrepresenting the true nature of his site.

“He told management that it was an entertainment website selling videos of concerts and lectures,” the report said. “He called it simply WOH, never saying that WOH stood for War on the Horizon.”

ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said in a written statement this week that the agency “does not condone any type of hateful rhetoric or advocacy of violence of any kind against anyone.”

Kimathi hasn’t responded to email and phone calls requesting comment.

Fellow patriots, now that you have become privy to the above, how safe do you feel knowing that Obama Inc. – in actual word and deed – is inciting to a race war, and has tasked DHS to procure billions of ‘unexplained’ ammo? Yet, the question remains: to what end? In a nutshell, to bring down America, that’s what!

Think of it this way: if someone with this blogger’s online profile (don’t point fingers in this direction) worked for DHS, surely it would be their duty to do their due diligence and decide if certain duties should be executed by others. Extrapolating further, would said DHS supervisors task this hypothetical ‘so and so’, to head up a team designed for ‘dialogue’ between the Muslim American community on DHS’s behalf? Through facilitating a cursory online search (a middle schooler could help them, if incapable), wouldn’t a policy paper, akin to Islam and Blood, give them a clue as to where this (again, hypothetical) employee’s understanding lies? Namely, that Islam IS incompatible with western norms/values and there is NO point in feigning otherwise. You get the drift.

Now, since DHS is rumored to be tasked with ferreting out intelligence matters, shouldn’t they know who’s who, at least within their employ?

One would think.

So, they are either truly incompetent or highly malignant in their intent, as ‘protectors’ of the homeland. This blog veers towards malignant, even if they missed the boat on their employee’s ‘race war’ website! Paradoxically, it would make them BOTH incompetent and malignant, since ‘hiding in plain sight’ is impossible while on the web (this blogger knows it for a fact!). At the very least, they instinctively knew about his absolute hatred of ‘White America’; his racism, website savvy beside the point. 

Guess what? Hiring a Black Panther for the job would have made much more sense. After all, they worked side by side with the Weathermen, Billy boy Ayers and his domestic bombers in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and both groups are still plotting against America, but under different (leftist ‘koshered’) garb.The aforementioned domestic terrorists make no bones about their plans; goals which their good buddy, Barack HUSSEIN Obama, seems inclined to agree/support. After all, select Black Panthers (and Weathermen) have a revolving door relationship at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue !

The INCREASED Rallying Cry For Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s IMPEACHMENT Grows Louder: Which Groups Are Jumping On Board? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

To be a patriot – at least in the western sense – has zero to do with ones skin color, sex or ethnicity. What it has to do with is a person’s adherence/appreciation for G-d given personal liberty and freedom.

This site has amassed a trove of evidence, detailing why Obama is ripe for impeachment. Consider: what about a regime gone wild shouldn’t lead to actionable judgment? Let us continue to count his crimes against the American people via trampling on the Constitution: IRSgate, Benghazigate and NSAgate are opening shots.

Yet, it warms the heart when Black Republicans break ranks, not only with fellow Congressional RINO’s, but with many in the Black community. Leftists in general ( Jewish brethren atop the list ), and Blacks in particular, believe that the law does not apply to Obama Inc and that is that. Fist bumps all around.

BLACK REPUBLICANS CALL FOR OBAMA IMPEACHMENT

President ‘has prevented, obstructed and impeded the administration of justice’

BOB UNRUH – videos embedded

  
Impeach

A Florida-based organization of black Republicans is calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment, releasing “Articles” that charge him with “egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.”

According to the Florida WatchdogWire, there are 10 articles including obstruction of the investigation into the Benghazi, Libya, murder of four Americans; the scandal of the administration’s running guns to drug ring lords in Mexico and the Internal Revenue Service’s campaign to obstruct the operations of conservative and Christian organizations.

The National Black Republican Association is an organization that is dedicated to returning “black Americans to their Republican Party roots by enlightening them about how Republicans fought for their freedom and civil rights, and are now fighting for their educational and economic advancement.”

The organization said the articles were delivered to Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“On July 4, 1776, the founders of our nation declared their independence from governmental tyranny and reaffirmed their faith in independence with the ratification of the Bill of Rights in 1791. Asserting their right to break free from the tyranny of a nation that denied them the civil liberties that are our birthright, the founders declared: ‘When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such government…”

Brand new! “Impeachable Offenses” reveals the evidence of the crimes Barack Obama has committed against the United States.

The Constitution also requires that a president or vice president “Shall be removed from office” for treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The challenge to Obama lists Benghazi, his disclosure of secret grand jury material about Benghazi, the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, his authorization of the provision of confidential income tax returns to outside interests, the IRS audits of conservatives, the electronic surveillance by the National Security Agency of innocent Americans, the Department of Justice’s wiretaps on journalists, the thwarting of the will of the people over the Defense of Marriage Act, his unconstitutional appointments of three members of the National Labor Relations Board and his intimidation of whistleblowers.

“Barack H. Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office,” the articles finish.

Just a few days earlier, a member of Congress said there likely would be votes enough in the House to impeach.

But Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, said it would be ineffectual because the Democrats in control in the Senate never would take any action.

Buzzfeed reported Farenthold responded to a question from a constituent at an open house.

The Constitution also requires a president to be a natural-born citizen, which the Founders apparently defined as the offspring of two citizens of the nation. Obama’s father never was a U.S. citizen.

The issue got so much attention during Obama’s first term that he presented a document he claimed was his birth certificate from the state of Hawaii.

Since then, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse investigative team have concluded the document is a fraud.

WND has reported that members of Congress are expressing interest in the dispute.

Farenthold said at the open house Saturday that it’s probably too late to address the matter.

“I think unfortunately the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue,” said the congressman. “The original Congress, when his eligibility came up, should have looked into it, and they didn’t. I’m not sure how we fix it.”

Farenthold told the audience in Luling, Texas: “You tie into a question I get a lot: ‘If everyone’s so unhappy with what the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him?’ I’ll give you a real frank answer about that: If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate and he wouldn’t be convicted.”

He cited the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, who was not convicted by the Senate.

That episode, he said, “redefined sex” for a lot of young people.

“What message do we sent to America if we impeach Obama and he gets away with what he’s impeached for and he is found innocent? What then do we say is OK?” Farenthold asked.

There already is a grass roots movement called Overpasses For Obama’s Impeachment, and members are staging protests on freeway overpasses, calling for impeachment.

WND also has reported Watergate investigator Bob Woodward of the Washington Post compares Obama to Richard Nixon. And there’s a national petition that calls on Congress to immediately investigate the “unconstitutional and impeachable offenses” of Obama.

The latest American group to seek formal congressional action against Obama says on its website that its goal is simple: “The removal of the corrupt and criminal president of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama.”

“His actions go unimpeded, our pleas through petitions unanswered. Our calls and letters to Congress are left ignored and unopened,” the group’s online post explains. “Our only peaceful recourse is to take to the streets and overpasses of America and DEMAND that our nation be returned to We the People, and that Barack Hussein Obama be impeached, removed from office, and held accountable for his actions while serving as president.”

The overpass protest group says America “is in its greatest time of peril in since the Founding Fathers bravely fought in the Revolutionary War.”

“Lady Liberty is calling YOU to stand up, to speak out, to take to the streets and DEMAND that the corrupt tyrant be removed from the White House, and all of those who colluded with him in his crimes against the United States be held accountable to the full extent of the law, with the maximum sentences handed down upon them.”

WND has reported previously on many calls for Obama’s impeachment, which would put him in the company of Nixon and Bill Clinton.

Sign the petition right away!

The petition states: “Therefore, we the undersigned urge Congress to immediately undertake a full and impartial investigation into the many blatantly unconstitutional actions of Barack Obama. For members of Congress, each of whom has also sworn a solemn oath to uphold the Constitution, to allow a president to routinely flout the Supreme Law of the land without being held accountable is equally repugnant to a free country and a free press.”

Tens of thousands already are on board with the effort, which is just the latest in a long string of calls for impeachment or an investigation.

Impeachment has been brought up by several WND columnists, too.

Nat Hentoff wrote that Obama, “since taking office, has continually limited the First Amendment, the most singular and powerful right that distinctly identifies Americans from residents in all other countries on Earth.”

Columnist Bert Prelutsky took it further.

“I want Obama to go through the process because he has it coming. In totalitarian states, after all, the people have no other recourse except to take to the streets and spill blood. But we have available the process of impeachment, and Obama should be forced to defend his contemptible lies and actions,” he wrote. “If for no other reason than his unbearable arrogance, the schmuck should have to pay a penalty. For instance, when a White House reporter asked him to justify spying on the Associated Press, Obama said, ‘I’ve still got 60,000-plus troops in Afghanistan and I still have a bunch of intelligence officers around the world.’ No, sir, the United States has 60,000-plus troops in Afghanistan and a bunch of intelligence officers around the world.”

A panel of top constitutional experts convened by WND blasted Obama’s actions in office. Bruce Fein, the legal scholar who is best known for having drafted articles of impeachment against former President Clinton for perjury after he lied under oath, said Obama’s orders to drone-kill a terror suspect were “tantamount to murder.”

“You can’t have democracy and the rule of law if you never get to know what the facts are and you just have to accept what the government says they are. If you don’t have a trial, that’s the definition of tyranny.”

Louis Fisher, a scholar in residence at the Constitution Project, said of Obama’s appointment of “czars”: “That is a big deal. A lot of people say, ‘Well, that’s been going on a long time.’ In our form of government, citizens vote for representatives and representatives pass laws. You have people heading departments, and they’re confirmed. There’s an understanding that we will call you up whenever we need to. … Congress passed legislation saying there’d be no funds for three czars, and they were named in the bill. Obama signed it into the law, but in the signing statement, he said that’s unconstitutional because he has the ‘prerogative’ to get the advice he needs to implement statutes. Well, c’mon Obama. You don’t have a prerogative to bring into the White House anybody you want at any salary. It’s all done by law. It goes back to 1978 where Congress passed legislation saying you have this number of people and these are their salaries and Congress can increase or decrease that at any time.”

And Herbert Titus, counsel to the law firm William J. Olson who previously taught constitutional law, common law and other subjects for 30 years at five different American Bar Association-approved law schools, said Obama’s military actions in Libya are a strong argument for impeachment.

“That’s the one that stands out. It’s unprecedented. It doesn’t even fit within any of the precedents that have been set since Korea.”

Obama should have seen such a move coming. A recent poll earlier this year said half of Americans say he should be impeached.

“It may be early in the process for members of Congress to start planning for impeachment of Barack Obama, but the American public is building a serious appetite for it,” said Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies, which did the telephone poll.

Half or nearly half of those surveyed said they believed Obama should be impeached for the multitude of scandals now consuming Washington.

On the issue of the Benghazi scandal, in which four Americans were killed after terror threats were ignored, 50.1 percent of Americans said Obama should be impeached. That included 27.6 percent of the responding Democrats.

On the IRS harassment of conservative and Christian organizations? Forty-nine percent said they agree that impeachment is appropriate, including 24.4 percent of the Democrats.

And on the fishing trip the Obama administration took into AP reporters’ telephone records in search of a security breach that may have been done by his own administration, 48.6 percent said impeachment is appropriate. That included 26.1 percent of the Democrats.

Sign the petition urging Congress to impeach Obama.

Former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan wrote that the country is in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate.

“The reputation of the Obama White House has, among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister, and, among liberals, from unsatisfying to dangerous<” she said. “No one likes what they’re seeing. The Justice Department assault on the Associated Press and the ugly politicization of the Internal Revenue Service have left the administration’s credibility deeply, probably irretrievably damaged. They don’t look jerky now, they look dirty. The patina of high-mindedness the president enjoyed is gone.

Noonan said Obama, “as usual, acts as if all of this is totally unconnected to him.”

“He’s shocked, it’s unacceptable, he’ll get to the bottom of it. He read about it in the papers, just like you. But he is not unconnected, he is not a bystander. This is his administration. Those are his executive agencies. He runs the IRS and the Justice Department,” she continued. “A president sets a mood, a tone. He establishes an atmosphere. If he is arrogant, arrogance spreads. If he is too partisan, too disrespecting of political adversaries, that spreads too. Presidents always undo themselves and then blame it on the third guy in the last row in the sleepy agency across town.”

It’s even being compared to Watergate, the break-in that ultimately led to the resignation of President Nixon.

That was the assessment of no less than Woodward, whose reporting on Watergate eventually snared the sitting president.

Woodward said recently: “If you read through all these emails, you see that everyone in the government is saying, ‘Oh, let’s not tell the public that terrorists were involved, people connected to al Qaeda. Let’s not tell the public that there were warnings.’ And I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts to the conversations, and he personally went through them and said, ‘Oh, let’s not tell this, let’s not show this.’ I would not dismiss Benghazi. It’s a very serious issue.”

A Republican congressman also recently brought up the subject.

“I would say yes. I’m not willing to take it [impeachment] off to take it off the table, but that’s certainly not what we’re striving for,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told CNN.

“We want truth, we want to bring the people who perpetrated the terrorism in Benghazi to be brought to justice, and we want to have the president do what he has said he would always do. And that is be open and transparent. Thus far, the White House has not done that.”

Earlier, Chaffetz, in an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune, was asked if impeachment was within the realm of possibility.

“It’s certainly a possibility,” he told the paper. “That’s not the goal but given the continued lies perpetrated by this administration, I don’t know where it’s going to go. … I’m not taking it off the table. I’m not out there touting that but I think this gets to the highest levels of our government and integrity and honesty are paramount.”

Chaffetz has been championing the call to probe the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the Benghazi compound that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., said impeachment was possible over the “most egregious cover-up in American history.

“People may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe told radio host Rusty Humphries, according to The Hill.

“The I-word meaning impeachment?” Humphries asked.

“Yeah,” Inhofe responded.

Additionally, radio host Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and one-time presidential candidate, predicted Obama won’t serve out his second term because of his complicity in a cover-up over Benghazi.

Other members of Congress who have suggested impeachment for a variety of reasons in recent years include Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla.; and Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

Others who have raised the subject include rock legend and gun-rights defender Ted Nugent, who said there’s “no question” Obama should be impeached.

He blasted “the criminality of this government, the unprecedented abuse of power, corruption, fraud and deceit by the Chicago gangster-scammer-ACORN-in-chief.”

“It’s so diabolical,” he said.

Even Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin called for the impeachment of Obama over his policy of permitting drone strikes on American citizens overseas who are members of terrorist organizations.

On WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” Benjamin affirmed she believes the drone warfare is an impeachable offense.

The administration of Democrat Barack Obama has still not satisfied congressional and media questions about just what it knew and when it knew it about the terrorist attack on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, last September 11. That attack killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. The Obama administration has changed its explanation of that attack several times since and has so far refused to identify those officials who made key decisions not to send help to stop the attacks, and who decided not to initially call the killings a terrorist attack. Knowing that and anything else you may be aware of about this issue, do you agree or disagree that President Obama should be impeached over his handling of this situation?

It has been learned that the Internal Revenue Service, under the administration of Democrat Barack Obama, has purposely targeted conservative and Christian groups for harassment over their tax exempt status while giving liberal nonprofit groups little or no scrutiny. Further, the IRS apparently leaked private tax information from these conservative groups to opposing liberal groups who were able to use that confidential information for political advantage. Knowing this and anything else you may be aware of about this issue, do you agree or disagree that President Obama should be impeached over his handling of this situation?

It has been learned that the U.S. Department of Justice under the administration of Democrat Barack Obama secretly obtained confidential telephone records of many reporters of the Associated Press in Washington, D.C. Attorney General Eric Holder has said his department obtained the phone records without the permission or knowledge of the Associated Press in order to find who in the federal government was leaking information about terrorist plots against America. AP officials have strongly protested this invasion of their privacy but the administration stands by its actions. Knowing this and anything else you may be aware of about this issue, do you agree or disagree that President Obama should be impeached over his handling of this situation?

IF one is seeking the Constitutional backing/muster to indict the Commander-in-Chief for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, look no further than the imprimatur of Professor Paul Eidelberg. He delivers the goods. 

Most ominously, under the out of control reign of the Radical/Islamist-in-Chief, law enforcement has become the regime’s personal bludgeon…shades of Nazi Germany. As a matter of fact, under his purview local policing has become increasingly militarized, in direct violation of Posse ComitatusNeed some visual aids to said charges? Fine. ‘Big brother’ cops crush push to impeach Obama.

So, will patriots wait until Obama Inc.’s goons start roughing them up, if they dare to legally ! demonstrate against ‘dear leader’? And, isn’t America starting to resemble the totalitarian grip of Germany, while under the crushing boot of the SS?

The NSA: Caught, Dead To Rights…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

From the get go, be rest assured, this blog makes no pretense in pretending to understand anything which necessitates computer-based expertise. Such a claim would be more than a hoot…can even hear some nearest and dearest emitting quite a few chuckles, as this is being written. Indeed, this science/math based specialty is best left in the capable hands of software/hardware engineers – you know who you are – as they sift through all the highly technical mumbo jumbo aspects of the NSA. It is the most advanced, illegal (domestically-speaking) spying system in the world. Most intrinsically, outside efforts (hack-wise or not…whatever it takes…beating NSA’s spies at their own game, as they dare pry, EN MASSE, into the privacy of Americans) to uncover the manifest abuses conducted under the purview of Obama Inc. may very well save the greatest Constitutional Republic in the world. Get cracking. Cat and mouse.

Nevertheless, the expertise herein absolutely lies in geo-politics, Islamic jihad and the Mid East, including its politics, religion and culture. And it doesn’t take a computer scientist to wade through the non-technical muck, in turn, internalizing what constitutes unfettered spying. This is for sure.

To be exact, when one is immersed in the dogged pursuit of those who dare to mess with liberty and freedom – chiefly, creatures belonging to the red/green alliance – anything smacking of squelching said freedoms, well, it doesn’t go unnoticed or non- pursued.

In this regard, in tandem with all the explosive scandals due to Obama Inc., including NSAgateas well as IRSgate, Benghazigate, DOJgate, Fast & Furious, etc, the notion that any move a U.S. citizen makes is open to monitoring, well, few Americans are okay with living in a police statejust ask the Catalanos (Michele Catalano, a long time blogger at PJ Media and elsewhere…holy smokes) and countless others, whose homes were invaded, all for the ‘crime’ of internet searches! In fact, being that this blogger’s searches covers a gambit of hot range issues…burning up the long distance telephone wires in the process…can’t imagine how dangerous it would be to still live in the U.S. And this (very disturbing) sentiment is coming from someone who lives within missile range of Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas and many other jihadi terrorist groups! No kidding.

Most egregiously, the exception to their blanket spying is the Muslim American community, and their ‘hands off’ policy is evinced herein – Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.

We do know the panel was set up under pressure from Islamist groups who complained about FBI stings at mosques. Just months before the panel’s formation, the Council on American-Islamic Relations teamed up with the ACLU to sue the FBI for allegedly violating the civil rights of Muslims in Los Angeles by hiring an undercover agent to infiltrate and monitor mosques there.”

IF Obama and gang truly believe that domestic spying on ALL Americans, yet excluding those who are the gravest threat – Muslim Americans – is going to pass muster, well, it is doubtful that patriots will continue to stand still.

XKeyscore: NSA tool collects ‘nearly everything a user does on the internet’

• XKeyscore gives ‘widest-reaching’ collection of online data
• NSA analysts require no prior authorization for searches
• Sweeps up emails, social media activity and browsing history
• NSA’s XKeyscore program – read one of the presentations

XKeyscore map
One presentation claims the XKeyscore program covers ‘nearly everything a typical user does on the internet’

A top secret National Security Agency program allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The NSA boasts in training materials that the program, called XKeyscore, is its “widest-reaching” system for developing intelligence from theinternet.

The latest revelations will add to the intense public and congressional debate around the extent of NSA surveillance programs. They come as senior intelligence officials testify to the Senate judiciary committee on Wednesday, releasing classified documents in response to the Guardian’s earlier stories on bulk collection of phone records and Fisasurveillance court oversight.

The files shed light on one of Snowden’s most controversial statements, made in his first video interview published by the Guardian on June 10.

“I, sitting at my desk,” said Snowden, could “wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge or even the president, if I had a personal email”.

US officials vehemently denied this specific claim. Mike Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee, said of Snowden’s assertion: “He’s lying. It’s impossible for him to do what he was saying he could do.”

But training materials for XKeyscore detail how analysts can use it and other systems to mine enormous agency databases by filling in a simple on-screen form giving only a broad justification for the search. The request is not reviewed by a court or any NSA personnel before it is processed.

XKeyscore, the documents boast, is the NSA’s “widest reaching” system developing intelligence from computer networks – what the agency calls Digital Network Intelligence (DNI). One presentation claims the program covers “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet”, including the content of emails, websites visited and searches, as well as theirmetadata.

Analysts can also use XKeyscore and other NSA systems to obtain ongoing “real-time” interception of an individual’s internet activity.

Under US law, the NSA is required to obtain an individualized Fisawarrant only if the target of their surveillance is a ‘US person’, though no such warrant is required for intercepting the communications of Americans with foreign targets. But XKeyscore provides the technological capability, if not the legal authority, to target even US persons for extensive electronic surveillance without a warrant provided that some identifying information, such as their email or IP address, is known to the analyst.

One training slide illustrates the digital activity constantly being collected by XKeyscore and the analyst’s ability to query the databases at any time.

KS1

The purpose of XKeyscore is to allow analysts to search the metadata as well as the content of emails and other internet activity, such as browser history, even when there is no known email account (a “selector” in NSAparlance) associated with the individual being targeted.

Analysts can also search by name, telephone number, IP address, keywords, the language in which the internet activity was conducted or the type of browser used.

One document notes that this is because “strong selection [search by email address] itself gives us only a very limited capability” because “a large amount of time spent on the web is performing actions that are anonymous.”

The NSA documents assert that by 2008, 300 terrorists had been captured using intelligence from XKeyscore.

Analysts are warned that searching the full database for content will yield too many results to sift through. Instead they are advised to use themetadata also stored in the databases to narrow down what to review.

A slide entitled “plug-ins” in a December 2012 document describes the various fields of information that can be searched. It includes “every email address seen in a session by both username and domain”, “every phone number seen in a session (eg address book entries or signature block)” and user activity – “the webmail and chat activity to include username, buddylist, machine specific cookies etc”.

Email monitoring

In a second Guardian interview in June, Snowden elaborated on his statement about being able to read any individual’s email if he had their email address. He said the claim was based in part on the email search capabilities of XKeyscore, which Snowden says he was authorized to use while working as a Booz Allen contractor for the NSA.

One top-secret document describes how the program “searches within bodies of emails, webpages and documents”, including the “To, From, CC, BCC lines” and the ‘Contact Us’ pages on websites”.

To search for emails, an analyst using XKS enters the individual’s email address into a simple online search form, along with the “justification” for the search and the time period for which the emails are sought.

KS2

KS3edit2

The analyst then selects which of those returned emails they want to read by opening them in NSA reading software.

The system is similar to the way in which NSA analysts generally can intercept the communications of anyone they select, including, as one NSA document put it, “communications that transit the United States and communications that terminate in the United States”.

One document, a top secret 2010 guide describing the training received by NSA analysts for general surveillance under the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008, explains that analysts can begin surveillance on anyone by clicking a few simple pull-down menus designed to provide both legal and targeting justifications. Once options on the pull-down menus are selected, their target is marked for electronic surveillance and the analyst is able to review the content of their communications:

KS4

Chats, browsing history and other internet activity

Beyond emails, the XKeyscore system allows analysts to monitor a virtually unlimited array of other internet activities, including those within social media.

An NSA tool called DNI Presenter, used to read the content of stored emails, also enables an analyst using XKeyscore to read the content of Facebook chats or private messages.

KS55edit

An analyst can monitor such Facebook chats by entering the Facebook user name and a date range into a simple search screen.

KS6

Analysts can search for internet browsing activities using a wide range of information, including search terms entered by the user or the websites viewed.

KS7

As one slide indicates, the ability to search HTTP activity by keyword permits the analyst access to what the NSA calls “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet”.

KS8

The XKeyscore program also allows an analyst to learn the IP addresses of every person who visits any website the analyst specifies.

KS9

The quantity of communications accessible through programs such as XKeyscore is staggeringly large. One NSA report from 2007 estimated that there were 850bn “call events” collected and stored in the NSA databases, and close to 150bn internet records. Each day, the document says, 1-2bn records were added.

William Binney, a former NSA mathematician, said last year that the agency had “assembled on the order of 20tn transactions about US citizens with other US citizens”, an estimate, he said, that “only was involving phone calls and emails”. A 2010 Washington Post article reported that “every day, collection systems at the [NSA] intercept and store 1.7bn emails, phone calls and other type of communications.”

The XKeyscore system is continuously collecting so much internet data that it can be stored only for short periods of time. Content remains on the system for only three to five days, while metadata is stored for 30 days. One document explains: “At some sites, the amount of data we receive per day (20+ terabytes) can only be stored for as little as 24 hours.”

To solve this problem, the NSA has created a multi-tiered system that allows analysts to store “interesting” content in other databases, such as one named Pinwale which can store material for up to five years.

It is the databases of XKeyscore, one document shows, that now contain the greatest amount of communications data collected by the NSA.

KS10

In 2012, there were at least 41 billion total records collected and stored in XKeyscore for a single 30-day period.

KS11

Legal v technical restrictions

While the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008 requires an individualized warrant for the targeting of US persons, NSA analysts are permitted to intercept the communications of such individuals without a warrant if they are in contact with one of the NSA’s foreign targets.

The ACLU’s deputy legal director, Jameel Jaffer, told the Guardian last month that national security officials expressly said that a primary purpose of the new law was to enable them to collect large amounts of Americans’ communications without individualized warrants.

“The government doesn’t need to ‘target’ Americans in order to collect huge volumes of their communications,” said Jaffer. “The government inevitably sweeps up the communications of many Americans” when targeting foreign nationals for surveillance.

An example is provided by one XKeyscore document showing an NSAtarget in Tehran communicating with people in Frankfurt, Amsterdam and New York.

KS12

In recent years, the NSA has attempted to segregate exclusively domestic US communications in separate databases. But even NSA documents acknowledge that such efforts are imperfect, as even purely domestic communications can travel on foreign systems, and NSA tools are sometimes unable to identify the national origins of communications.

Moreover, all communications between Americans and someone on foreign soil are included in the same databases as foreign-to-foreign communications, making them readily searchable without warrants.

Some searches conducted by NSA analysts are periodically reviewed by their supervisors within the NSA. “It’s very rare to be questioned on our searches,” Snowden told the Guardian in June, “and even when we are, it’s usually along the lines of: ‘let’s bulk up the justification’.”

In a letter this week to senator Ron Wyden, director of national intelligence James Clapper acknowledged that NSA analysts have exceeded even legal limits as interpreted by the NSA in domestic surveillance.

Acknowledging what he called “a number of compliance problems”, Clapper attributed them to “human error” or “highly sophisticated technology issues” rather than “bad faith”.

However, Wyden said on the Senate floor on Tuesday: “These violations are more serious than those stated by the intelligence community, and are troubling.”

In a statement to the Guardian, the NSA said: “NSA’s activities are focused and specifically deployed against – and only against – legitimate foreign intelligence targets in response to requirements that our leaders need for information necessary to protect our nation and its interests.

“XKeyscore is used as a part of NSA’s lawful foreign signals intelligence collection system.

“Allegations of widespread, unchecked analyst access to NSA collection data are simply not true. Access to XKeyscore, as well as all of NSA’s analytic tools, is limited to only those personnel who require access for their assigned tasks … In addition, there are multiple technical, manual and supervisory checks and balances within the system to prevent deliberate misuse from occurring.”

“Every search by an NSA analyst is fully auditable, to ensure that they are proper and within the law.

“These types of programs allow us to collect the information that enables us to perform our missions successfully – to defend the nation and to protect US and allied troops abroad.”

Are you dizzy yet? Hope not. After all, despite their spin that FULL frontal spying is mandatory to keep America safe (just ask Boston’s victims if they feel safer, knowing full well that the Chechen bombers WERE monitoredbut only once Russia’s security forces gave U.S. security the heads up…not due to anything the NSA uncovered) we know better. Certainly expect so. 

Michael Hastings & His ‘Mysterious’ Fiery Crash: Investigative Reporter Came Too Close For Obama Inc’s Comfort…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

There are many bugaboos used to silence truth seekers. The usual suspects are laced with charges of ‘racism‘. Big whoop.Thus, if you believe Zimmerman is innocent – despite his acquittal – you’re targeted as a vile ‘racist’, never mind that the arresting Florida Police Chief agrees with this blog’s assessment: Yes, Zimmerman was arrested to ‘placate’ the public! In a similar perverted vein, heaven forfend, if you voice opposition to the gutting of DOMA, you’re deemed an unrepentant ‘homophobe‘ – traditional family underpinnings and Judeo-Christian moorings, be damned.              

And the latest one is a made up out of whole cloth         ‘phobia’, ‘Islamophobia‘. Therefore, if you refuse to be silent, regarding the dangers of political/theo Islam, watch your back – literally. Sheesh. And there are too many other leftist silencers, but some of us refuse to be cowed. NOT in this lifetime…

Back to Hastings, and those who work assiduously to frame Obama Inc’s narrative. In this regard, as most realize (though from the media coverage, one would be hard pressed to posit alternative theories…the crash is ‘solved’…case closed, despite ALL the irrefutable discrepancies), car crashes fall into several categories. They can be weather-related, and mechanical failure is sometimes (though less often) at play. It runs the gamut. Forensics often (though not always) determine the proximate cause. However, a fatal crash, more often than not, is the result of the driver or another driver’s impairment or recklessness. 

And it is not as if this blog is unfamiliar with said subject matter. In a tangentially related matter – the wreckage wrought by alcoholism – the following fall out has been explored at these pages on multiple occasions and from various fronts. The Deadly & Devastating Effects of Drunk Driving is one such piece of exploration.

In any case, it is verily impossible to pull the wool over these eyes, and when unsure of the ‘facts’ presented, there are more than a few experts to tap into, that’s a fact. Hastings death is no exception.

So when 1 + 1 and a + b aren’t adding up, it may be easier to let things rest, rather than tarred with another bugaboo – a ‘conspiracy theorist’. Yet, while there are far too many of them out there in cyberspace (and elsewhere), this address spares them no umbrage. Besides, there are overwhelming and pressing matters to attend to – little ones to spoil too – with precious time left for nonsense. Least of all, there is no inclination to see things which are not there. But leaving the ‘truth’ to the lying media is so much worse. Color this blogger ‘this or that’. Who cares.

In light of the above, try the following on for your own thoughtful evaluation, and see what comes to the forefront. Re-shaking the ‘down low’ skeletons is a treasure trove of evidence which indicts the POTUS, whether or not its contents make the reader uncomfortable. Sorry for that.

‘THREE WEEKS LATER: THE LATEST DETAILS, THEORIES SURROUNDING REPORTER MICHAEL HASTINGS’ MYSTERIOUS DEATH IN FIERY CAR CRASH’

Jul. 8, 2013 

It has been almost three weeks since BuzzFeed reporter Michael Hastings was killed in a fiery car crash in Los Angeles, yet important details about his death are still unknown.

XETV-TV in San Diego is investigating the mysterious car accident to find answers regarding the award-winning journalist’s sudden death. Hastings is best known for his 2010 Rolling Stone bombshell story that forced Gen. Stanley McChrystal to resign as commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

Details of Reporter Michael Hastings Death in Fiery Car Crash Remain a Mystery

XETV-TV details what we know about Hastings’ death so far:

According to City News Service Hastings, 33, “was driving south on Highland Avenue when he apparently lost control of the compact (2013 Mercedes Benz CLK250) near Melrose Avenue and crashed into palm trees in the median about 4:20 a.m. Tuesday (June 18). The car’s engine reportedly ended up about 200 feet away from the impact site.”

An eyewitness at the scene, Jose, employed at nearby business ALSCO Inc said, the car was travelling very fast and he heard a couple explosions shortly before the car crashed.
In fact, the explosion was so intense that it took the LA County assistant corner, Ed Winter, two days to identify the burned-beyond recognition body of Hastings. Officials confirm that an autopsy has been performed, but the cause of death is pending. LAPD media spokesperson Lieutenant Andrew Neiman said, “it will take several weeks to get the toxicology results.” By stark contrast, in Italy, ‘Sopranos’ star James Gandolfini’s family received the toxicology report within a few days.

Despite the intensity of the single car accident, an LAPD statement determined that there was “no foul play” involved.

Shortly after his death, a number of reports surfaced that fueled conspiracy theories across the Internet.

It was first revealed that Hastings reportedly reached out to Wikileaaks attorney Jennifer Robinson just a few hours prior to his death, claiming the FBI was investigating him. The FBI has denied that Hastings was ever under investigation.

An email Hastings sent to friends and colleagues hours before his death created even more mystery. It read:

“Subject: FBI Investigation, re: NSA -Hey (redacted names) — the Feds are interviewing my ‘close friends and associates.’ Perhaps if the authorities arrive ‘BuzzFeed GQ,’ er HQ, may be wise to immediately request legal counsel before any conversations or interviews about our news gathering practices or related journalism issues. Also: I’m onto a big story, and need to go off the rada[r] for a bit.

All the best, and hope to see you all soon. Michael”

In his book, “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” Hastings revealed that a former McChrystal staffer threatened to hunt him down and kill him “if we don’t like what you write.” Hastings claimed he replied: “Well, I get death threats like that about once a year, so no worries.”

XETV-TV also points out some inconsistencies and concerning details and theories about the crash:

After reading accounts of the car crash and examining the scene of the accident erroneous details were hard to overlook. Stories discussed the road as narrow, not true, it’s a four-lane road with a large median dividing traffic. Some reports said there was a curve in the road, also not true; in fact it’s straight freeway-to-freeway. Also, there was no damage to the median curb, only fire discoloration. But the most significant missing evidence was the absence of any skid marks—even though the car made a 60-degree turn into a palm tree.

Research of this topic reveals a new angle to this story, namely —Boston Brakes.

This theory was explained by a former Marine Gordon Duff who refers to the “Boston Brakes” technique, in which “drive by wire” cars, specifically a Mercedes Benz, can be manipulated remotely to simulate an out-of-control accident, according to his Veterans Today story (The 2010 story is a must read). The story details are eerily similar to Hastings fiery accident scene as there were no skid marks.

Adding credence to the possible car-hacking scenario is former U.S. National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism Richard Clarke. After news broke on the Hastings car accident, he confirmed the “drive by wire” concept.

Law enforcement officials have also discussed the unusual intensity of the fire inside Hastings car. “It’s highly unusual since gasoline generally doesn’t burn that hot,” the report adds. The video of the car fire appears to resemble a “thermite” burn.

“No matter how you slice this highly suspicious car accident, a Mercedes is not going to explode into flames without assistance” XETV-TV explains.

Automobile experts reportedly claim fires in new cars occur due to three main reasons: “Running the engine out of oil, running the engine out of coolant, or a mammoth car mangling accident, that leaves the hot side of the battery to short out against the frame before it reaches the fuse panel.”

Read the station’s full report here. Most intrinsically, Northeast Intelligence Network agrees with this blog’s assessment: Hastings was murdered ! Yes, he was. His recent investigative work, regarding NSAgate, got him killed. And to call this regime criminal in nature is to insult garden variety criminals!

Whether or not the truth wins out, the fact remains that Obama Inc’s skeletons are rattling and will eventually tumble out. The questions become: Will all the dead and buried have their TRUE stories revealed? Consequently, will those involved receive their just punishment? 

IF past is prologue, don’t hold your breath. We all know that the Clinton machine is still running strong, despite their buried bones. Vince Foster, anyone?

IRSgate, Via Its Chief Counsel, Lands Squarely At The Lawbreaker-in-Chief’s Door! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Out of a laundry list of scandals swirling around Obama Inc two resonate the most with average Americans – IRSgate and NSAgate. One deals with financial fleecing and the other with a TOTAL invasion of privacy. Not exactly the way to engender trust, nor endearment, in ones leadership, to say the least.

To be sure, unless operating off the radar financially without requisite SS numbers in the murky waters of ‘cash’ only payments – commonly referred to in business as ‘off the books’ – most are as scared of the IRS as they are of being bit by a Pit Bull or some such wild animal. Maybe even more so. A trip to the dentist, in comparison, is a piece of cake, even if much drilling/pulling needs to be done. The IRS is that onerous.

It is this abject fear of the IRS’s ability to financially ruin a person’s life which has rendered IRSgate to register so high on the Richter scale, not that other scandals implicating Obama Inc. aren’t equally criminal in nature! But most relate better when they can project themselves into the mix, hence, taxpayers – large and small – are hoping for the ax to fall, but this time on the IRS!

That being said, IRS about to be blown wide open was penned less than two months ago, ever mindful of the dread and contempt felt by the average citizen, as juxtaposed against a deep knowledge base of the inner workings of the IRS. Sort of like having a bird’s eye perspective, both as a taxpayer and (previous) co-owner of a corporate tax practice while living in the NY/NJ area.

IRS abuse of Tea Party groups can be chalked up to “rogue employees” in Cincinnati, huh? Not according to the latest from the Washington Post.

The chief counsel’s office for the Internal Revenue Service, headed by a political appointee of President Obama, helped develop the agency’s problematic guidelines for reviewing “tea party” cases, according to a top IRS attorney.

In interviews with congressional investigators, IRS lawyer Carter Hull said his superiors told him that the chief counsel’s office, led by William Wilkins, would need to review applications that the agency had screened for additional scrutiny because of potential political activity.

Previous accounts from IRS employees had shown that Washington IRS officials were involved in the controversy, but Hull’s comments represent the closest connection to the White House to date.

The IRS counsel is a political appointee. Obama appointed Wilkins to that position in April 2009, so he was there across the entire abuse regime. Previous testimony in the IRS scandalhas revealed that Wilkins learned of the abuse by at least August 4, 2011, but White House spokesman Jay Carney told the press in May 2013 that Wilkins never bothered to inform the White House about it. This new information calls the previous testimony into question: Wilkins apparently knew of the abuse earlier than August 2011, because his own office was involved in it. His likely excuse: His staff went rogue and acted stupidly on their own. No one is ever in charge of, or accountable for, anything in Obama’s government, unless they’re in the military or otherwise expendable. Wilkins is probably too high to be expendable.

We’re getting ever closer to discovering that the White House through its counsel’s office was involved in, and probably directing, the abuse of citizens who were organizing to speak out against the Obama agenda. Catherine Engelbrecht’s case indicates that the IRS abuse is just one line of attack; the Obama government unleashed the full alphabet soup on her after she founded True the Vote.

That’s part of why Eric Holder has been unleashed on George Zimmerman. The right hand is hammering an innocent man while the left hand tries to wave Obama’s most dangerous scandal away. They’ll risk civil unrest to keep this particular scandal off the front pages.

And not to be remiss in burying the White House into quicksand, along comes one of their cheerleaders who inadvertently landed them into deeper holes. Kismet. As a Democrat testifying at yesterday’s hearing she inadvertently let the cat out of the bag. Oh, their Pinocchio noses keep growing…

In need of audio visuals? No problem. Take a peek herein To wit, if said revelations do not (eventually) land the Lawbreaker-in-Chief and his underlings straight into jail cells, then no amount of boomerangs will suffice. Therefore, one will then be able to state with assurance that IRSGate is…case closed. And that is that.
