First of all, I need to do no such thing. My avatar has been nursing that same glass of rum and coke for two years, so any assessment of my character based on its performance, would see me as a man possessed of a great deal of temperance, if not absolute sobriety.

As for your suggestion that one cannot know a thing unless one is actually involved with it, that is the most intellectually vacant argument that one could possibly hope to encounter. Not only is it a witless argument, but incredibly common. It has been bunkum on the countless occasions it has been leveled at me before and remains bunkum now. The least you could to is express your inability to make a solid point in an original fashion. I do not mind flawed arguments, but I detest lazy flawed arguments with a passion.

In actuality, distance can often provide unique and objective analysis of a given situation, far more readily than can an acute, close in examination. For example, if you stand directly at the foot of the great wall of China, one foot away from it, and look at it, you see the individual bricks in detail, but you get no idea of the overarching scale of the edifice what so ever. Stand three miles from it, you see a greater portion, understand a greater percentage of its enormity.

The error in your thinking is clear in the fact that while you lambast me for taking a position on this matter from across the pond, you ignore the fact that GCHQ is part of the system which provides information on American citizens, to the government of your country, via liaison between the NSA and GCHQ. You ignore the fact that the GLOBAL intelligence network which is being run by the Five Eyes is not an affair which involves just a single nation, but is a web with many nodes, a complex structure whose parts are not owned by a single government in ANY sense, but whose parts are notionally under the control of MANY intelligence agencies across the world, not just one.

Of course, as I said, these nodes are not ACTUALLY owned by governments, but by the sorts of people who make money from the sale of information collected by those systems, the same sorts of people who make money from artificial wars, the sale of arms to countries which would be better off buying building materials and medical aid, the sorts of people who own the economies of most of the worlds continents. This is a GLOBAL issue, not a strictly American one.

Those facts make a believer out of me. The people here attacking the Trump are DELIBERATELY missing the point. Had it been Cruz, or Paul, or any other NON Liberal (just name any), we would see a similar attack. Some moronic phrase like "You __'tards are cultist".

Meanwhile the damage from the last 3 or 4 admin in the US and the UK to the ME and the Western Society will take years to clean up. The totalitarian cult of the left needs to be put out of it's misery or all hell will reign down on us. It needs to be socially liberal world that is fiscally responsible. You do what you want if it doesn't cause harm to others and the Gov spends very little. That is how free people operate.

Trump claimed that Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower.

The MSM actually claimed it first. Back in January the MSM said Trump had warrants against him and the target was Trump Towers.

So if it's false, why were liberals pushing the same narrative they now deny?

TREY GOWDY FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE WOULD ENSURE AMERICA STAYS GREAT!!!!!


Comey is ridiculous!!! How in the hell can this not be something that is so freaking obvious!! IF IT IS IN THE PAPER THEN CLASSIFIED INFORMATION WAS LEAKED!!!

HE CANT CONFIRM THEY ARE INVESTIGATING!!! WTF!!!!

LET'S TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT GENERAL FLYNN'S MILITARY CAREER!!


wikipedia



Flynn was commissioned in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant in military intelligence, in 1981.

His military assignments included multiple tours at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with the 82nd Airborne Division, XVIII Airborne Corps, and Joint Special Operations Command, where he deployed for the invasion of Grenada and Operation Uphold Democracy in Haiti. He also served with the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana, and the Army Intelligence Center at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Flynn served as the assistant chief of staff, G2, XVIII Airborne Corps at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, from June 2001 and the director of intelligence at the Joint Task Force 180 in Afghanistan until July 2002.

He commanded the 111th Military Intelligence Brigade from June 2002 to June 2004 and was the director of intelligence for Joint Special Operations Command from July 2004 to June 2007, with service in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom) and the Iraq War (Operation Iraqi Freedom).

He served as the director of intelligence of the United States Central Command from June 2007 to July 2008, as the director of intelligence of the Joint Staff from July 2008 to June 2009, then the director of intelligence of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan from June 2009 to October 2010.


LINK

Really??? and we the ignorant are suppose to believe that Flynn committed some major crime or collusion dealing with Russia??

Has it occurred to ANY ONE, that given the positions General Flynn held and the classified and above top secret he had access too, that when asked on national television about a private phone call with Russian diplomats, he would have been revealing a classified operation that would be detrimental to our US troops and anyone working in a covert capacity??



That he had NO CHOICE EXCEPT TO LIE TO PENCE IN ORDER TO PROTECT OUR NATIONAL SECURITY!! AND THAT THE INFORMATION HE HAS, WOULD HAVE COMPROMISED AN OPERATION THAT HAS BEEN ONGOING AND WOULD RESULT IN WAR WITH RUSSIA IF IT WERE TO GET OUT??

Please look at this mans career!!! THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR ELECTION PROCESS....FLYNN DECIDED TO TAKE THE FALL IN ORDER TO PROTECT AMERICANS HERE AND ABROAD!!!!

IT MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH THAT SOMEONE LIKE JAMES COMEY, THE MILK TOAST THAT HE IS, GETS UP IN PUBLIC AND BLOWS OFF THE DAMAGE THAT WAS DONE BY THE EFFING MEDIA AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND THAT NASTY BITCH
HILLARY!!!

THE SAME MAN WHO STOOD BEFORE THE WORLD AND PROCLAIMED NO CRIMINAL CHARGES WOULD BE FILED AGAINST CLINTON FOR HER 30,000+ MISSING EMAILS!!! EVEN THOUGH SHE SENT AND RELEASED CLASSIFIED INFORMATION SHE LACKED INTENT OF TRYING TO HURT THE USA!!!!

DID YOU JUST NOT HERE Comey admit that releasing CLASSIFIED INFORMATION IS A SERIOUS FELONY PUNISHABLE BY UP TO 10 YEARS IN PRISON?????

YET, THE SOB LET BITCHARY WALK SCOTT FREE!!!!

And what about that TOOL AND USELESS LYNCH?? WHAT ABOUT HER Director "milk toast"????

THIS IS A SICK TACTIC TO SMEAR A GREAT MANS NAME .....THE funny thing is, General Flynn is brilliant and KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING.....He, when the time is right is going to wipe the floor with the Obama administration!! and with the Clinton's!!! and he is going to EXPOSE MR "MILK TOAST" FOR WHAT HE IS!!!

Heck, those people keep claiming "Trump and his team are working with the Russians"...Yet the Hillary team also met with the Russians, and so did the Obama administration. Not to mention the Uranium deal that HIllary facilitated and helped the Russains. Or the fact that the Obama administration, and Obama himself signed off on another deal that allowed the transfer of 116 metric tons of uranium to the Iranians. These two deals mean the Obama administration, and HIllary and her team have deals with the Russians. All of them were meeting with the Russians.

All of this "Trump and his associates are puppets of the Russians" is simply a smokescreen created by the left to stop by any means the Trump administration, and to shift the blame.

Can you site your source(s)?

From what I've seen, there was a report that a FISA warrant was requested and denied, then later another for two Russian banks (not Trump, not Trump Tower) which is said to have been accepted.

As far as I know, there is no confirmation that either occurred.

Give me a few minutes while I find them. I have posted them on ATS but was busy and forgot to save them. Back in January it was CONFIRMED by sources there were FISA warrants for Trump, and one source specifically stated Trump towers.

This means either Democrats lied then to get fake news published hurting Trump, or they are lying now. Or it was collusion between democrats and the press to publish anti-Trump news even if it was not factual.

I will post sources in a few minutes when I find them.

Two sources VERIFY FISA warrants on Trump's campaign. Not Russians, but US people in Trump's campaign (which could include Trump).

Two separate sources with links to the counter-intelligence community have confirmed to Heat Street that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s campaign with ties to Russia

While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.

However, it is thought in the intelligence community that the warrant covers any ‘US person’ connected to this investigation, and thus covers Donald Trump and at least three further men who have either formed part of his campaign or acted as his media surrogates.

heatst.com...

Here we have an article saying Trump is not named in the FISA warrant, but he is the actual target according to sources.

Neither Mr Trump nor his associates are named in the Fisa order, which would only cover foreign citizens or foreign entities - in this case the Russian banks. But ultimately, the investigation is looking for transfers of money from Russia to the United States, each one, if proved, a felony offence.
A lawyer- outside the Department of Justice but familiar with the case - told me that three of Mr Trump's associates were the subject of the inquiry. "But it's clear this is about Trump," he said.

www.bbc.com...

More FISA warrants that are focused on Trump and how it's evidence they have probable cause against him.

But The Times knew several critical facts: the F.B.I. had a sophisticated investigation underway on Trump’s organization, possibly including FISA warrants. (Some news outlets now report that the F.B.I. did indeed have such warrants, an indication of probable cause.)

www.nytimes.com...

Here is another source confirms an investigation into Trump, not simply business as usual spying, but targeting Trump's ties to Russia.

The BBC reported that the FBI had obtained a warrant on Oct. 15 from the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court allowing investigators access to bank records and other documents about potential payments and money transfers related to Russia. One of McClatchy’s sources confirmed the report.

Read more here: www.mcclatchydc.com...=cpy


Here we have Salon specifying a FISA warrant related to a TRUMP SERVER.

a private server discovered in Trump Tower was connected to a Russian bank for potentially illegal purposes, the FBI’s counter-intelligence wing submitted two FISA requests about the possible financial and banking offenses connected to the server — the first of which was denied in June (and which named Trump) and the second which was more narrowly drawn up and thus granted in October.

www.salon.com...

Another report specifying this is all about a Trump Server.

FBI’s counter-intelligence arm, sources say, re-drew an earlier FISA court request around possible financial and banking offenses related to the server. The first request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank. While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.

heatst.com...

Here is a Slate article saying the FISA warrant probably was not rejected, and so we should not look at the application being rejected as being evidence Trump is not guilty. It is entirely an article based on supposition with literally no facts supporting it. Basically anything to hurt Trump.

The FISC almost never rejects FISA applications. So the claim that it turned down a request targeting Trump associates has been spun as proof that the FBI failed in investigating Trump associates with troubling ties to Vladimir Putin’s close associates, even as it continued to investigate Hillary Clinton and her email server. But even assuming that both claims are true—that the FBI sought a FISC order during the summer and that it obtained a narrowly crafted one in October—it is probably not the case that the original FISC rejection was all that unusual.

Very good summary of the overwhelming amount of reporting at the time that Trump and his team were being spied on. It's not surprising that these stories have been conveniently forgotten. Either it was fake news at the time, which looking through the sources is a distinct possibility, or the media is trying to bury the truth.

Excuse me...

Lying to Pence, much as I detest the disgusting, phobic, fascist, fundamentalist gas bag, was NOT justified in the least. This is the problem that EVERYONE, right or left of center should be absolutely up in arms about. There must never be a situation where the elected representatives of a nations people, receive less than a full accounting of events, ESPECIALLY when the reasoning is one of "national security" being threatened by their being informed. Put simply, if a President, a Vice President, or any of the senior members of a cabinet are in a position where they are not fit to be read in on all levels of information which might, in any way pertain to national security, threats to it, mitigation methods for those threats, or anything else for that matter, then you have a massive problem.

The simple fact of the matter is, that the intelligence community in the US should NOT have the ability to act without the express permission and full awareness of the office from which executive power actually issues in the country in the first place. One of the serious problems that people had with the last administration, was that things were being done by the intelligence community (that is, by sworn servants of the people and the state), which most people in the country disagreed with. A great many of the people who voted for Trump, did so because they expected him to get a hand around the throats of these people, and remind these people that the owners of the country are the people, that the intelligence services may not act in an unaccountable fashion, that they are to do what they are told, not as they see fit, and damn the people to whatever dishonour they bring down on the nation by their actions.

Of course, expecting effective executive oversight from a man who has been in billions of dollars of personal debt is hardly a wise choice on the part of the electorate, but that is neither here nor there. The point is, that the people deserve an intelligence service which is accountable, and the buck for their actions must be able to travel from every quiet knife in the guts in a dark alley, all the way to the executive branch, in order that accountability actually functions at all, and for that to be the case, the President and his second in command MUST be competent to be read in.

Once again, either Pence and Trump, if not the rest of the senior staff, are fit to fill the positions they are in, and therefore ought to be read in on the every little nuance of national security matters, or they are unfit to hold the positions they are in, and ought to be replaced. But the situation cannot stand, where people unfit to know the details of how the nation is being protected, what from, and how in any given situation, are permitted to occupy the highest offices in the land. That is just bloody shoddy, and GUARANTEES the unaccountable status of the intelligence and security services.

I thought in connection with the "Wiretapping" investigation, Trey Gowdy was issuing a subpoena to former National Security Advisor SUSAN RICE, for her to appear before a committee for questioning.

What happened with that? Is this responsibility now with the new Special Council, Robert Mueller?

President Trump is right...ONCE AGAIN! (What is Comey's punishment for lying to Congress?)


""Well, new declassified documents are proving President Trump’s prognosis to be accurate.

Once again, the mainstream media are exposed as biased hypocrites who got it WRONG.

Just weeks after Comey was fired by the president, declassified documents have now shown that Comey and the FBI may have repeatedly broken the law by improperly receiving and sharing intelligence from surveillance conducted on American citizens.

Even worse, there is evidence that Comey knew about these violations, but did little to stop them and hid the abuses from Congress.

If the reports of constant violations are in fact accurate, James Comey may have lied to Congress.

During recent testimony before being fired by Trump, Comey stated that his agency only conducted surveillance on U.S. citizens when it was “lawfully collected, carefully overseen and checked.”"
