What is being revealed here is a sea change in the human condition that is almost evolutionary in its implications. What are our lives like without the presumption of privacy? What kind of creatures will we become in this brave new world that appears already to have arrived? It's not fun to contemplate. Even the medieval peasantry had moments of escape from their feudal lords.
Obama’s CIA director John Brennan wasn’t so much “worried” by the half-baked intelligence as excited by it and the pretext it furnished for a fishing expedition at Trump Tower. What stage that expedition reached — Did they only seek a FISA warrant but not get one? Did they get one but not actually wiretap Trump Tower? and so on — is of less importance than that it was launched at all.
Having been caught in 2015 in what was a major breach of the laws governing collection of intelligence on what are referred to as “US persons” Obama didn’t cease and desist; he refined his techniques and deployed them against the Trump campaign and transition.
It is time this investigation became a national security investigation and the FBI and counterintelligence agencies replaced the politics-tainted Capitol Police as the lead agency investigating how House Democrats handed over the backdoor to the House computer network to a Hezbollah cell laundering its money through a car dealership and a crooked Iranian doctor.
Conservatives agree with President Trump that the illegal leaks used against Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn are the true scandal, and that the leakers should be found and prosecuted, according to a new poll by FedUp PAC.
The president and GOP should get out front here. Let Congress investigate Russia meddling in our election. And let a special prosecutor run down, root out, expose, and indict those in the investigative and intel agencies who used their custody of America’s secrets, in collusion with press collaborators, to take down Trump appointees who are on their enemies lists.
There is an anti-constitutional coup taking place in this country. And on Monday the coup plotters registered their first kill: LTG Mike Flynn, President Trump’s national security advisor. In this must-read article we offer conservatives a definitive analysis of how and why the deep state took out General Flynn.
Careerism and ideology at the top sometimes undermine the work of patriotic and gifted case officers in the rank and file. The integrity of intelligence depends on the probity of individual intelligence chiefs — and the degree to which administration operatives are kept away from intelligence directors. Reform requires honesty rather than the present self-righteous hypocrisy.
Recognizing that Islam is the threat, and implementing threat-based security procedures devoid of political correctness or ideological agendas is the only way to stop these attacks from continuing in what Muslims now consider to be “the era of total confrontation” with the West.
A group of conservative leaders is urging both houses of Congress to “establish and fund permanent standing committees to conduct hearings and investigations, take testimony, and issue reports on all foreign-funded influence operations inside the United States, and on organizations and movements and fraudulent tax-exempt foundations devoted to the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States.”
This is about winning a war and in war incompetence of this magnitude verges on treason. Losing the CIA Station Chief in Afghanistan because his cover has been blown by the Obama White house deprives the US of one our most experienced and valuable assets in the still hot war in one of the major centers of radical Islam.
Sen. Feinstein has no problem with experiments with Amer. liberties, unless she and her staff are the victims. The gov't derives its powers from the people's consent and must recognize that in areas of natural rights no one, not even a majority, can consent to their surrender for us.
If Republicans want to win they need to build a new 21st century coalition and Rand Paul’s message that conservatives are leading the fight for the constitutionally protected rights freedom of speech and privacy is a great place to start.
Sen. Rand Paul believes Americans should be afraid of an intelligence community he believes to be unapologetically "drunk with power." Paul, who will deliver a speech Wednesday at the University of California Berkeley, said he'll raise the prospect of "dystopian nightmares."
NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden accused Sen. Intelligence Comm. Chair Dianne Feinstein of double standards, pointing out her lack of concern about widespread surveillance of ordinary citizens.
Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell is facing accusations from Repubs. that he misled lawmakers about the Obama administration's role in crafting the bogus storyline that a protest gone awry was to blame for the deadly Benghazi attack.
Americans should thank Afghanistan's ungrateful President Hamid Karzai for giving Washington a shove.
The CIA and the Pentagon have been quietly waging a campaign to stop the State Department from allowing the Russian space agency to build half a dozen antenna structures, known as monitor stations, on U.S. soil.
