Apparently many people missed this little gem set forth by the outgoing Obama Administration.

Apparently some "new" rules were put in place that allows government agencies to gain access to NSA data gatherings.

Wonder why this was put up late in the Administration's term?

Could it be this enabled more inside left over people in several agencies to use info against Trump ?

I bet it's a bizarre part of a deep cover Obama operation The O'Gladio Conspiracy


Surprise: At the End, Obama Administration Gave NSA Broad New Powers

This story, from the Jan. 12, 2017, edition of the New York Times, was little-remarked upon at the time, but suddenly has taken on far greater significance in light of current events:

In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.

The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

he change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.

Sweet square dancing Jesus.

Now they can claim there is only one bad apple in a conference hall full of leakers.

I do remember reading that somewhere... I believe you are correct about Obama laying the groundwork for his shadow government, Obama was and is a very dangerous individual and Trump needs to start firing the entrenched opposition.

Obama is all smiles and knives in the back. Yet, you would think he is some God like carnation, if you listened to a lot of Brits.

And leaking SIGINT is a part of those new powers.

I pray there is some karmic justice here sometime in the next four years.

IMO, Barack Hussein Obama is the worst thing we ever perpetrated on the American people. His tentacles went deep into agency bureaucracies and we won't see the damage till much of it has already been done.

From your source:


Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch signed the new rules, permitting the N.S.A. to disseminate “raw signals intelligence information,” on Jan. 3, after the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., signed them on Dec. 15, according to a 23-page, largely declassified copy of the procedures.

Have you considered the possibility that maybe Obama was gifting Trump with a more centralized government to use against us?

It seems more like Obama was building a shadow government that would answer to someone other than Trump.

How do we know that? Up until Trump's election, it was the cool thing to say that the 'left-right paradigm' was always an illusion of choice. Now an elite billionaire (who was a democrat up until 2009) gets elected, and everyone pretends he's outside of the game??? He's in the 1% that everyone keeps whining about.

Building or built?

Perhaps Obama's greatest legacy will happen long after he is gone?

One thing is for sure, it's a bitter and ugly transition, looks a lot like a kind of really ugly divorce between the angry bitch on the left and madman on the right.

Will this war of the Roses lead to a real war?

Of course, and it's quite possible that Trump hasn't yet stepped on the worst landmines left behind by the exiting administration.

Apparently unpopular opinion around here but maybe he did this because he knew the Trump Admin was as corrupt as some of us thought?

Or he wanted to make it look corrupt.
