Issued on: January 9, 2018

Section 1. Requirement for Procedures. (a) The Director of National Intelligence shall, within 30 days of the date of this memorandum, issue and release publicly a policy requiring that each element of the Intelligence Community (IC) develop and maintain procedures for responding to requests from Federal, State, local, tribal, or territorial government officials for non-public identity information concerning known unconsenting United States persons that was originally omitted from disseminated intelligence reports.


See the full memo here:
www.whitehouse.gov...

He is saying the the DNI needs to come up with the Policy for "collection, retention, and dissemination of information concerning...non-public identity information concerning known unconsenting United States persons..."

Further he says that the DNI may not just make up new rules, the rules have to be the ones that are law and guidance from previous cases and directives.

Essentially, publish how it CURRENTLY IS and HAS BEEN.

"Please tell the world how screwed up and horrible FISA is, you have 30 days, go."

This looks to me like a step in correcting the Obama era domestic intelligence over reach.

Unmasking is supposed to be rare and only under FISA Court authority, certainly not for political oppo research. There has been speculation in the last day or so that Trump team was unmasked without FISA court approval.

Don't you find it funny.

The same people that snip bout the Patriot Act used a PIC(PRivate intelligence Company) to basically spy on their counterparts ?

I remember a guy named Nixon they wanted to impeach over it.

I remember a guy named Bush they also wanted to impeach over it.

Now spying is cool.

As long as its for the common good.

Both left and right will go super Machiavelli.

The thing is the right are the ones who get caught. Iran-Contra anyone?

Rand Paul and Americans in general should be glad for this.

Seems to me they are laying out the foundation for capital controls. People think it's about immigration, which is partly true but the bigger picture are capital controls.

Listen, the dollar has acted as the world's reserve currency ever since 1944 (Bretton Woods) and it has been irredeemable (backed by anything tangible) since 1971 when Nixon defaulted on international debt redemption in gold specie.

That system is coming to an end, therefore they are going to impose capital controls. This partly the reason for the hysteria in cryptocurrencies as people are thinking they can hide their wealth in cryptos but that is nonsense, cryptos have to be exchanged for whatever currency the government legalizes and that's at exchanges, choke points where the government can levy capital gains taxes and or outright confiscation of assets.

Until Trump rescinds the Patriot act, it's all a big nothing burger. Domestic surveillance is institutionalized biglly....and Trump is to chicken **** to take on the big dogs. Trump can't even keep a viable staff together.

You made up your own metric, one that he's never mention, and that none of his supporters have stated was expected.

That said...i don't disagree. If he wants to really impress me...get rid of the Patriot Act.

Its a step in the right direction.

But wait, does this mean that this most authoritarian president ever will not being using his intel community to spy on his political opponents as easily as Obama did?

Well thats strange, isnt it?

Can we spy on the government?

Is it legal?

Do the citizens have the right to know what their government is doing in secret?

After all, how are we to determine if they are doing what we sent them there to do?

It's probably useless most of the spying is done by private contractors, Snowden revealed that. And, to boot, there are various levels of redundancy in the spying. There are probably firms in Pakistan doing the same spying that firms in the US are doing.

There's $21 trillion missing from government accounting. Where did that money come from and where did it go? One logical explanation is a global network of spying.

I wonder what they are going to come up with. What are they going to say "We spy on who ever we damn well please like going after journalist that lord Obama told us to go after" Obama had more journalist and political adversaries thrown in jail than any other president combined. This is not speculation, it's confirmed that Obama used the intelligence services as a political weapon. Everyone knows this and the democrats are either ok with this or pretend that it didn't happen. Either way, they look like idiots.

That's a bold accusation. Got a link that's not some right wing blog or publication like Brietbart? You said it's confirmed...confirm it!
