  1. Spicer reiterated Trumps tweet meant not actual wire tapping and not actually Obama. Getting down on Trumps level I think what he said was meant literally. NSA records every phone call, everywhere. The veracity of his claim is well documented and quite literally true. Theres not conspiracy, but there is the fact that everyone is tapped. Everyone does not know this. Not that we have to depend on Spicers clarification. "The President used the word wiretaps in quotes to mean, broadly, surveillance and other activities." Wiretapping is a narrowly defined surveillance activity that involves tapping into "a telephone or telegram wire in order to get information," according to Merriam-Webster dictionary. Spicer also said that Trump was referring to the Obama administration broadly -- and not accusing Obama of personal involvement -- Trump is on the level, his language and the way in which he speaks to his constituency. My interpretation of Trumps behavior is, he is getting the truth out, that Americans, one and all, have no reasonable expectation to think anything is private any more. He grasped the IC construct and messaged it literally so Americans, the ignorant, the confined, the helpless all hear the same thing. Government knows the content of all your digital communications. Hes not wrong. The NSA collects data. Period. Thx, govenor! ;)
  2. Me thinks the judge is a impartial information observer. http://thehill.com/homenews/324707-ex-intelligence-official-napolitanos-british-wire-tapping-claim-didnt-get-it-right Johnson, a former CIA analyst and former Fox News contributor, told CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday that Napolitano made him a source unknowingly and “didn't get it right, [or] accurate either.” “I think judge should have had a different approach to it,” Johnson added. Napolitano reportedly directed the New York Times to call Johnson after facing skepticism regarding his U.K. wiretapping claim.
  3. As a former nail banger I think of it as measuring once and cutting twice.
  4. Reporter at press conference with Angela Merkle and Trump. Mr Trump, do you regret your tweeting about tapping and what do you say now that the GHCQ has said they had nothing to do with it. Trump, well we have great tweeting, and Mrs Merkle and I now share a common experience in how weve been treated by the previous administration. To which Angela smirked! TOUCHE! lmao BAM and just like that I realized Trump CAN think on his feet! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/germany/10407282/Barack-Obama-approved-tapping-Angela-Merkels-phone-3-years-ago.html "The president allegedly allowed US intelligence to listen to calls from the German Chancellor’s mobile phone after he was briefed on the operation by Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Agency (NSA), in 2010. Last week, however, Mr Obama assured Mrs Merkel that her phone is not being monitored now – and will not be in future. But the US has pointedly declined to discuss the NSA’s actions in the past."

  5. Floating possibilities and considering sources. http://www.judgenap.com/post/did-obama-spy-on-trump "Sources have told Fox News that the British foreign surveillance service, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump's calls. The NSA has given GCHQ full 24/7 access to its computers, so GCHQ -- a foreign intelligence agency that, like the NSA, operates outside our constitutional norms -- has the digital versions of all electronic communications made in America in 2016, including Trump's. So by bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints. The there there....... Thus, when senior American intelligence officials denied that their agencies knew about this, they were probably being truthful. Adding to this ominous scenario is the fact that three days after Trump's inauguration, the head of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, abruptly resigned, stating that he wished to spend more time with his family." _________________________ The Brits "We've made clear to the US administration that these claims are ridiculous and should be ignored. We've received assurances that these allegations won't be repeated," May's spokesman said. GCHQ: Wiretap claims are 'nonsense' ____________________________ The WH story. "Judge Andrew Napolitano made the following statement, quote, 'Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command (to spy on Trump). He didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA ... he used GCHQ,'" Spicer told journalists. "White House press secretary Sean Spicer flatly denied Friday that the White House apologized to the British government after citing an uncorroborated Fox News report to allege that a UK intelligence agency spied on President Donald Trump at the behest of former President Barack Obama. McMaster also told his counterpart that "their concerns were understood and heard and it would be relayed to the White House." The official said there were "at least two calls" from British officials on Thursday and that the British ambassador to the United States called Spicer to discuss the comment. "Sean was pointing to the breadth of reporting, not endorsing any specific story," the official said. ________________________ He said, he said, she said, they said. In the words of the great Gilda Rader, "Some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end.There is no real security except for whatever you build inside yourself."
  6. I heard Napolitanos lite version saying a president can request any digital comms anytime. Seeing how Clapper and O have parsed their responses it will be interesting to see if they can be shown to have lied or what was the rationale for peering into the opposition party conversations.
  7. How do you parse the italicized comments, Ellen? Im supposing this information will not come to light because it is compartmentalized. The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is inviting heads of agencies to comment on election hacking. My hunch is the truth will lie buried with those who have left office. Ever since Clapper lied to Congress about the existence of NSA's domestic collection of data Ive had a sickening sense that the truth will never be disclosed in open court by those in positions sworn to secrecy unless offered immunity. Therefore we are left with the breath taking information Snowden laid out. When Comey said yesterday, "no right to absolute privacy in the US" I thought, well yes there is. Taking the 5th while not offering protection against prosecution does maintain privacy. Also marital privilege can be invoked. However, none of these offer assurances of losing ones privacy by being jailed.
  8. Reading like a Vince Flynn plot Wikileaks points to: UMBRAGE The CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques 'stolen' from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation. With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the "fingerprints" of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from. The proof the Russkies were the source of the DNC hack. "The metadata in the leaked documents are perhaps most revealing: one dumped document was modified using Russian language settings, by a user named "Феликс Эдмундович(Felix Edmundovich) ," a code name referring to the founder of the Soviet Secret Police, the Cheka, memorialised in a 15-ton iron statue in front of the old KGB headquarters during Soviet times." "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times......the epoch of incredulity."
  9. The Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism goes to work. "For no one but Trump would have the chromium-vanadium steel cojones to take on the Deep State by going straight for its jugular, right for the throat of its emperor. It’s like Alexander going straight for Darius at Gaugamela." Darius was killed by his own men for his cowardly retreat. The Deep State is being challenged already having been dealt a severe blow by Wikileaks. http://lawnewz.com/high-profile/yes-obama-could-be-prosecuted-if-involved-with-illegal-surveillance/
  10. Of the 552 positions needing Senate approval 18 have been confirmed, 22 are waiting confirmation and 512 are waiting a nomination. Then there are some 3500 some odd. But..... Trump has manned the ramparts in Romneian manner establishing beach heads in every government agency with 400 insiders who who keep watch. His spies are listed. Have to keep an eye on those O holdovers. https://projects.propublica.org/graphics/beachhead https://www.propublica.org/article/meet-hundreds-of-officials-trump-has-quietly-installed-across-government
  11. I have to fight hard to listen to words when challenged by some other attribute of a speaker. I know its fairly common or else why do we seem to always have presidents with full heads of hair? ;) Obviously Trump, the man, on sight alone, sends some into orbit.
  12. The timing coincides only coincidently to the womens march. (I think( The hedge fund manager has a slightly different take. I think he may be on to something too. http://www.businessinsider.com/how-men-and-women-invest-differently-2014-2 Ive seen an interesting trait in my own family. Those who have more take on more risk. Those with less dont like to gamble. The money manager has cited gender diversity as a way to improve company performance and increase shareholder value. The lack of women on boards has long been a problem. Beyond pipeline issues, some boards see no reason to increase their gender diversity, data shows. Currently, nearly a quarter of boards represented in the Russell 3000 have no women at all

  14. Binney developed Thin Thread, one of a handful of patriots who blew the whistle, the program used to spy on Americans that was uncovered by Snowden. "The judges on the FISA court are "not even concerned, nor are they involved in any way with the Executive Order 12333 collection," Binney said during the radio interview. "That's all done outside of the courts. And outside of the Congress." "I think the FISA court's basically totally irrelevant." Binney told Fox the laws that fall under the FISA court's jurisdiction are "simply out there for show" and "trying to show that the government is following the law, and being looked at and overseen by the Senate and House intelligence committees and the courts."

  15. Wouldnt this idea rest on a theory that there are no leaks from the sieve called press main stream? Comon, even you cant believe it. I urge a time out. ;) Whats missing is all the irretrievable time with fill in the blank. chasing rainbows
