Deep Oligarchy

The deep state surveillance behind Russia-gate.

Although many details are still hazy because of secrecy - and further befogged by politics - it appears House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was informed last week about invasive electronic surveillance of senior U.S. government officials and, in turn, passed that information onto President Trump. 

This news presents Trump with an unwelcome but unavoidable choice: confront those who have kept him in the dark about such rogue activities or live fearfully in their shadow. (The latter was the path chosen by President Obama. Will Trump choose the road less traveled?) 

What President Trump decides will largely determine the freedom of action he enjoys as president on many key security and other issues. But even more so, his choice may decide whether there is a future for this constitutional republic. Either he can acquiesce to or fight against a Deep State of intelligence officials who have a myriad of ways to spy on politicians (and other citizens) and thus amass derogatory material that can be easily transformed into blackmail. 

This crisis (yes, "crisis" is an overused word, but in this highly unusual set of circumstances we believe it is appropriate) came to light mostly by accident after President Trump tweeted on March 4 that his team in New York City's Trump Towers had been "wiretapped" by President Obama. 

Trump reportedly was relying on media reports regarding how conversations of aides, including his ill-starred National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, had been intercepted. Trump's tweet led to a fresh offensive by Democrats and the mainstream press to disparage Trump's "ridiculous" claims. 

However, this concern about the dragnets that U.S. intelligence (or its foreign partners) can deploy to pick up communications by Trump's advisers and then "unmask" the names before leaking them to the news media was also highlighted at the Nunes-led House Intelligence Committee hearing on March 20, where Nunes appealed for anyone who had related knowledge to come forward with it. 

That apparently happened on the evening of March 21 when Nunes received a call while riding with a staffer. After the call, Nunes switched to another car and went to a secure room at the Old Executive Office Building, next to the White House, where he was shown highly classified information apparently about how the intelligence community picked up communications by Trump's aides. 

The next day, Nunes went to the White House to brief President Trump, who later said he felt "somewhat vindicated" by what Nunes had told him. 

The 'Wiretap' Red Herring 

But the corporate U.S. news media continued to heckle Trump over his use of the word "wiretap" and cite the insistence of FBI Director James Comey and other intelligence officials that President Obama had not issued a wiretap order aimed at Trump. 

As those paying rudimentary attention to modern methods of surveillance know, "wiretapping" is passé. But Trump's use of the word allowed FBI and Department of Justice officials and their counterparts at the National Security Agency to swear on a stack of bibles that the FBI, DOJ, and NSA have been unable to uncover any evidence within their particular institutions of such "wiretapping." 

At the House Intelligence Committee hearing on March 20, FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Michael Rogers firmly denied that their agencies had wiretapped Trump Towers on the orders of President Obama. 

So, were Trump and his associates "wiretapped?" Of course not. Wiretapping went out of vogue decades ago, having been rendered obsolete by leaps in surveillance technology. 

The real question is: Were Trump and his associates surveilled? Wake up, America. Was no one paying attention to the disclosures from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013 when he exposed Director of National Intelligence James Clapper as a liar for denying that the NSA engaged in bulk collection of communications inside the United States. 

The reality is that EVERYONE, including the President, is surveilled. The technology enabling bulk collection would have made the late demented FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's mouth water. 

Allegations about the intelligence community's abuse of its powers also did not begin with Snowden. For instance, several years earlier, former NSA worker and whistleblower Russell Tice warned about these "special access programs," citing first-hand knowledge, but his claims were brushed aside as coming from a disgruntled employee with psychological problems. His disclosures were soon forgotten. 

Intelligence Community's Payback

However, earlier this year, there was a stark reminder of how much fear these surveillance capacities have struck in the hearts of senior U.S. government officials. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that President Trump was "being really dumb" to take on the intelligence community, since "They have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you."

Maddow shied away from asking the logical follow-up: "Senator Schumer, are you actually saying that Trump should be afraid of the CIA?" Perhaps she didn't want to venture down a path that would raise more troubling questions about the surveillance of the Trump team than on their alleged contacts with the Russians.

Similarly, the U.S. corporate media is now focused on Nunes's alleged failure to follow protocol by not sharing his information first with Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. Democrats promptly demanded that Nunes recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

On Tuesday morning, reporters for CNN and other news outlets peppered Nunes with similar demands as he walked down a corridor on Capitol Hill, prompting him to suggest that they should be more concerned about what he had learned than the procedures followed.

That's probably true because to quote Jack Nicholson's character in "A Few Good Men" in a slightly different context, the mainstream media "cannot handle the truth" - even if it's a no-brainer.

At his evening meeting on March 21 at the Old Executive Office Building, Nunes was likely informed that all telephones, emails, etc. - including his own and Trump's - are being monitored by what the Soviets used to call "the organs of state security."

By sharing that information with Trump the next day - rather than consulting with Schiff - Nunes may have sought to avoid the risk that Schiff or someone else would come up with a bureaucratic reason to keep the President in the dark.

A savvy politician, Nunes knew there would be high political cost in doing what he did. Inevitably, he would be called partisan; there would be more appeals to remove him from chairing the committee; and the character assassination of him already well under way - in The Washington Post, for example - might move him to the top of the unpopularity chart, displacing even bête noire Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But this episode was not the first time Nunes has shown some spine in the face of what the Establishment wants ignored. In a move setting this congressman apart from all his colleagues, Nunes had the courage to host an award ceremony for one of his constituents, retired sailor and member of the USS Liberty crew, Terry Halbardier.

On June 8, 1967, by repairing an antennae and thus enabling the USS Liberty to issue an SOS, Halbardier prevented Israeli aircraft and torpedo boats from sinking that Navy intelligence ship and ensuring that there would be no survivors to describe how the Israeli "allies" had strafed and bombed the ship. Still, 34 American seamen died and 171 were wounded.

At the time of the award ceremony in 2009, Nunes said, "The government has kept this quiet I think for too long, and I felt as my constituent, he [Halbardier] needed to get recognized for the services he made to his country." (Ray McGovern took part in the ceremony in Nunes's Visalia, California office.)

Now, we suspect that much more may be learned about the special compartmented surveillance program targeted against top U.S. national leaders if Rep. Nunes doesn't back down and if Trump doesn't choose the road most traveled - acquiescence to America's Deep State actors.

Ray McGovern served as a CIA analyst for 27 years and conducted one-on-one briefings of the President's Daily Brief under Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1985.

Bill Binney was former Technical Director, World Geopolitical & Military Analysis, NSA and co-founder of NSA's SIGINT Automation Research Center before he retired after 9/11.

Commit to the Fight , BurnThe Boats

Commit to the Fight , ... BurnThe Boats !
Health care bill’s failure: Just part of the ‘Art of the Deal’
Trump, Doesn’t Retreat,..He Strategically withdraws.
Repeal and replace Paul Ryan... !!
Next..... We Call for another vote on a pure repeal… then to Replace…

Congress must act.  This is the plan .

1) Completely repeal Obamacare. Our elected representatives must eliminate the individual mandate. No person should be required to buy insurance unless he or she wants to.

2) Modify existing law that inhibits the sale of health insurance across state lines. As long as the plan purchased complies with state requirements, any vendor ought to be able to offer insurance in any state.

By allowing full competition in this market, insurance costs will go down and consumer satisfaction will go up.

3) As we allow the free market to provide insurance coverage opportunities to companies and individuals, we must also make sure that no one slips through the cracks simply because they cannot afford insurance. We must review basic options for Medicaid and work with states to ensure that those who want healthcare coverage can have it.

4)Allow individuals to use Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Contributions into HSAs should be tax-free and should be allowed to accumulate. These accounts would become part of the estate of the individual and could be passed on to heirs without fear of any death penalty. These plans should be particularly attractive to young people who are healthy and can afford high-deductible insurance plans.

These funds can be used by any member of a family without penalty. The flexibility and security provided by HSAs will be of great benefit to all who participate.

5) Require price transparency from all healthcare providers, especially doctors and healthcare organizations like clinics and hospitals. Individuals should be able to shop to find the best prices for procedures, exams or any other medical-related procedure.

6) Block-grant Medicaid to the states. Nearly every state already offers benefits beyond what is required in the current Medicaid structure. The state governments know their people best and can manage the administration of Medicaid far better without federal overhead.

States will have the incentives to seek out and eliminate fraud, waste and abuse to preserve our precious resources.

7) Remove barriers to entry into free markets for drug providers that offer safe, reliable and cheaper products. Congress will need the courage to step away from the special interests and do what is right for America. Though the pharmaceutical industry is in the private sector, drug companies provide a public service.

Allowing consumers access to imported, safe and dependable drugs from overseas will bring more options to consumers.

8) Allow individuals to fully deduct health insurance premium payments from their tax returns under the current tax system. Businesses are allowed to take these deductions so why wouldn’t Congress allow individuals the same exemptions?

Health care bill's failure: Just part of the 'Art of the Deal'

President Donald Trump faces three irreconcilable factions:

He must bring them together — to "deliver the goods,"

a key rule in 
The Art of the Deal. But first he must show them "the downside" — and convince them they will fail on their own.

The “shot heard round the world”

      First Revolutionary Battle at Lexington and Concord

In April 1775, when British troops are sent to confiscate colonial weapons, they run into an untrained and angry militia. This ragtag army defeats 700 British soldiers and the surprise victory bolsters their confidence for the war ahead.

On the night of April 18, 1775, hundreds of British troops set off from Boston toward Concord, Massachusetts, in order to seize weapons and ammunition stockpiled there by American colonists. 

Early the next morning, the British reached Lexington, where approximately 70 minutemen had gathered on the village green. Someone suddenly fired a shot—it’s uncertain which side...

and a melee ensued. 

 When the brief clash ended, eight Americans lay dead and at least an equal amount were injured, while one redcoat was wounded. The British continued on to nearby Concord, where that same day they encountered armed resistance from a group of patriots at the town’s North Bridge.

 Gunfire was exchanged, leaving two colonists and three redcoats dead. Afterward, the British retreated back to Boston, skirmishing with colonial militiamen along the way and suffering a number of casualties; the Revolutionary War had begun. The incident at the North Bridge later was memorialized by Ralph Waldo Emerson in his ..

1837 poem “Concord Hymn,” whose opening stanza is:

 “By the rude bridge that arched the flood/Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled / Here once the embattled farmers stood / And fired the shot heard round the world.”

Emerson penned “Concord Hymn” for the dedication of a battle monument at the site of the North Bridge. At the dedication ceremony on July 4, 1837, a group of townspeople sang the poem’s 16 lines to the tune of a traditional hymn called “Old Hundredth.” 

Emerson, a Boston native born in 1803, spent portions of his childhood in Concord (where his grandfather, a minister, had witnessed the 1775 battle at the North Bridge from his nearby home) and moved there permanently in 1834. 

He went on to become one of the country’s leading intellectuals and lived in Concord until his death in 1882.


     Interesting Facts On April 19th of 1775 

approximately seven hundred redcoats arrived at Lexington where they were met by around seventy seven armed colonists on the town green. What exactly happened, that led to shots being fired, is unclear. 

Greatly outnumbered the colonist were about to disperse when a shot was fired. 

Who fired the first shot is not known. This resulted in several volleys being fired leaving 8 colonists dead and several wounded; only one British soldier was wounded.

After this relatively small skirmish the colonist retreated and the British headed out for Concord unaware that most of the arms they were looking for had already been moved to a safer place by the colonist.

Upon reaching Concord the Redcoats searched the town finding very few arms. They burned what few arms they did find.

The colonist (militiamen), who at this point numbered about five hundred, exchanged fire with the British at Concords North Bridge eventually forcing the British to retreat.

The British march back to Boston which covered approximately 18 miles (29 kilometers) turned into a retreat as more-and-more militiamen (perhaps as many as 3,500) joined the conflict.

 Shooting at the British soldiers from behind trees and rocks and whatever cover they could find they inflicted significant damage on the troops.The British troops, with the help of reinforcements, eventually made it back to the safety of Boston.

The day after the battles thousands of militiamen surrounded Boston and the American Revolution had begun.

A Side note.: I Was there, in April 1975 Reinacting this Historic Battle..
For that moment...I Stepped back in Time.. I Will never forget..

This is the Kentish Guard (RIM)I Was a Younger Man then, ..1970's.
I Served on Fire Squad / We were an "elite State militia".

 I'm the 3rd Back Row.. Served 10 Years..

The Guards were also present at the formation of the Continental Army during the Siege of Boston in 1775, where General Washington noticed how exceedingly well the Kentish Guards were trained, equipped, and disciplined.

Thirty-five members of the Guards were subsequently to serve as officers in the Continental Army, foremost among them Major General Nathanael Greene, the "Savior of the South" who, by the end of the war, was second only to Washington.

This wasn’t a vote. It was an American Uprising

...All Votes are in.!!

This wasn’t an election. It was a revolution.
This wasn’t a vote. It was an American Uprising

Over fifty million Americans got up and stood in front of the great iron wheel that had been grinding them down.

They stood there even though the media told them it was useless. They took their stand even while all the chattering classes laughed and taunted them.

They were fathers who couldn’t feed their families anymore. They were mothers who couldn’t afford health care. They were workers whose jobs had been sold off to foreign countries.

They were sons who didn’t see a future for themselves. They were daughters afraid of being murdered by the “unaccompanied minors” flooding into their towns. They took a deep breath and they stood.
They held up their hands and the great iron wheel stopped.

The Great Blue Wall crumbled. The impossible states fell one by one.

Ohio. Wisconsin. Pennsylvania. Iowa. The white working class that had been overlooked and trampled on for so long got to its feet. It rose up against its oppressors and the rest of the nation, from coast to coast, rose up with it.

They fought back against their jobs being shipped overseas while their towns filled with migrants that got everything while they got nothing. They fought back against a system in which they could go to jail for a trifle while the elites could violate the law and still stroll through a presidential election.

They fought back against being told that they had to watch what they say. They fought back against being held in contempt because they wanted to work for a living and take care of their families.
They fought and they won.

This wasn’t a vote. It was an uprising.

Like the ordinary men chipping away at the Berlin Wall, they tore down an unnatural thing that had towered over them.

And as they watched it fall, they marveled at how weak and fragile it had always been. And how much stronger they were than they had ever known.

Who were these people? They were leftovers and flyover country. They didn’t have bachelor degrees and had never set foot in a Starbucks. They were the white working class. They didn’t talk right or think right. They had the wrong ideas, the wrong clothes and the ridiculous idea that they still mattered.
They were wrong about everything.

Illegal immigration? Everyone knew it was here to stay. Black Lives Matter? The new civil rights movement. Manufacturing? As dead as the dodo. Banning Muslims? What kind of bigot even thinks that way? Love wins. Marriage loses. The future belongs to the urban metrosexual and his dot com, not the guy who used to have a good job before it went to China or Mexico.

They couldn’t change anything. A thousand politicians and pundits had talked of getting them to adapt to the inevitable future. Instead they got in their pickup trucks and drove out to vote.

And they changed everything.

Barack Hussein Obama boasted that he had changed America. A billion regulations, a million immigrants, a hundred thousand lies and it was no longer your America. 
It was his.

He was JFK and FDR rolled into one. He told us that his version of history was right and inevitable.

And they voted and left him in the dust. They walked past him and they didn’t listen. He had come to campaign to where they still cling to their guns and their bibles. He came to plead for his legacy.

And America said, “No.”

Over fifty millions Americans repudiated him. They repudiated the Obamas and the Clintons. They ignored the celebrities. They paid no attention to the media. They voted because they believed in the impossible. And their dedication made the impossible happen.

Americans were told that walls couldn’t be built and factories couldn’t be opened. That treaties couldn’t be unsigned and wars couldn’t be won. It was impossible to ban Muslim terrorists from coming to America or to deport the illegal aliens turning towns and cities into gangland territories.

It was all impossible. And fifty million Americans did the impossible. They turned the world upside down.
It’s midnight in America. CNN is weeping. MSNBC is wailing. ABC calls it a tantrum. NBC damns it.

 It wasn’t supposed to happen. 

The same machine that crushed the American people for two straight terms, the mass of government, corporations and non-profits that ran the country, was set to win.

Instead the people stood in front of the machine. They blocked it with their bodies. They went to vote even though the polls told them it was useless. They mailed in their absentee ballots even while Hillary Clinton was planning her fireworks victory celebration. They looked at the empty factories and barren farms.

They drove through the early cold. They waited in line. They came home to their children to tell them that they had done their best for their future.

They bet on America. And they won.
They won improbably. And they won amazingly.

They were tired of ObamaCare. They were tired of unemployment. They were tired of being lied to. They were tired of watching their sons come back in coffins to protect some Muslim country. They were tired of being called racists and homophobes. They were tired of seeing their America disappear.

And they stood up and fought back. This was their last hope.
Their last chance to be heard.

The media had the election wrong all along.

This wasn’t about personalities. It was about the impersonal. It was about fifty million people whose names no one except a server will ever know fighting back.

It was about the homeless woman guarding Trump’s star.
 It was about the lost Democrats searching for someone to represent them in Ohio and Pennsylvania. It was about the union men who nodded along when the organizers told them how to vote, but who refused to sell out their futures.

No one will ever interview all those men and women. We will never see all their faces. But they are us and we are them. They came to the aid of a nation in peril. They did what real Americans have always done. They did the impossible.

America is a nation of impossibilities. We exist because our forefathers did not take no for an answer. Not from kings or tyrants. Not from the elites who told them that it couldn’t be done.

The day when we stop being able to pull off the impossible is the day that America will cease to exist.
Today is not that day. Today fifty million Americans did the impossible.

Midnight has passed. A new day has come. And everything is about to change.

Donald Trump is the president-elect of the United States of America, and he did it by completely blowing up the electoral map and all of our projections and expectations of it.

We are Patriots

We believe in vigilance in protecting and preserving the US Constitution .
We want to Protect our many rights, liberties, or sovereignties....

We want  Less government..

less spying, a fair or flat tax code, states rights over a wholly federal govt law.

We want more money in your pocket and for the govt,to just leave us the hell alone and do the #1 thing they are responsible for which is our protection.

Let the states make laws based on what their voters want.

Every state has their own culture, history, climate and agriculture.
Everything the feds stick their hands into gets screwed up and ends up costing more money causing them to raise more taxes.

The privatization of so many things such as infrasctructure and aid programs would cost less and work better. 

Competition creates better prices and better products.

When the federal govt. does something, they do it wrong, it ends up costing 100times more than planned, there is chronyism and then they force you to buy it or pay taxes on it and there is no competition so nothing ever improves.

Just leave us the hell alone! That's all we want!

Trump takes no Crap,.. 

and i Know he will Secure the Border and bring in the Jobs,..

I See a Man,.. That's trying to Save our Country............

In My View...... 

Trump is Not a republican,      He's Not a Democrat..

He's an American Patriot ,..  

Who loves God family and Country..., Who want's to Live here with us all,..

Here in America,  and make us Strong and prosperous Again..!

..Obama and Hillary's Genocide and WAR Crimes..

                                                         War Crimes.   TREASON.

Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are both deserving of each other’s legacies. Legacies filled with more than an abundance of destruction, deaths, genocide .Of all the U.S. foreign policy catastrophes, Christian genocide will be the enduring legacy of Barack Obama's administration, and Hillary Clinton must share part of the blame.

Clinton was secretary of state when ISIS emerged, when ISIS captured huge portions of Syria and Iraq, and when Christians were targeted for death, expulsion and enslavement.

Who imagined seven years ago that Obama would flee from a stable working democracy in Iraq that quickly turned into an international killing ground, focused on destroying 2,000-year-old Christian communities.

Vice President Joe Biden declared in 2010 that Iraq was one of Clinton's "great achievements." Instead, a true Middle Age international terror force was unleashed on the world, killing hundreds of thousands.

First the Yazidis, an old religion loosely connected to Islam, were massacred, and women and children taken as slaves. Obama-Clinton watched. Only the Kurds took action to save the remaining Yazidis.

In Mosul, Christians were given days to leave their homes or die. Their homes were marked with a Christian symbol giving them notice. Their churches were destroyed. Those who didn't leave after ISIS claimed ownership were cruelly executed or enslaved.

Maronite, Greek-Orthodox, Melkite, Armenian, Chaldean and Syrian Orthodox all face genocide in the Middle East.

During these punishing biblical times, what does the Obama administration worry about the most? 
Climate change. 

How does Obama deal with the Christian and Yazidi refugees? 

Ignore them.

Just  weeks ago, the State Department announced another 10,000 Syrian migrants would be granted asylum and money to come to America. Most of the migrants are young Muslim men leaving their daughters, wives, sisters and mothers. Of the 10,000 migrants, only 84 Christians were admitted.

This is not an oversight. This is deliberate. To discriminate against a class of genocide victims is wrong, and it may well constitute a war crime.

The State Department claims the Muslim migrants were vetted. But it was Sunni Muslims working for the United Nations who preselected Sunni Muslims to come to America.

Why so few Christians? Christians cannot seek refuge at any U.N. camp because Sunnis control the camps and make life unbearable for nonbelievers.

Congress could do something by requiring the Department of Homeland Security to give preference to groups threatened with actual genocide. That would give priority to Yazidis and Christians. Muslims could stay in safety zones with their families. There is little refuge for Yazidis or Christians in Syria or Iraq.

HR 4017, called the "Save Christians & Yazidis from Genocide Act," is attempting to rectify this. The act, authored by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, the Orange County Republican, offers the most reasonable solution for Americans who want to help the most endangered populations.

During this week, evangelical leaders, nongovernmental organizations for Christian relief and American Middle East churches are meeting with Rohrabacher to make this a national issue.

Bill Clinton's biggest regret as president is that he didn't act sooner in Rwanda once the 1994 genocide began; 300,000 lives could have been saved.

"It had an enduring impact on me," Clinton said in 2013.

What better question to ask Hillary Clinton than how she could justify watching this genocide while she was secretary of state and now not give its victims priority.

Donald Trump will be getting a lot of free advice.

But the human question of genocide is probably most important.
Shawn Steel :Shawn Steel is the Republican National Committeeman from California.

gaddafis last words as he begged for mercy what did i do ..?

7 countries in 5 years a confession for first degree murder .Over 16,000 Syrians killed by US-backed rebels, have fallen victim to opposition groups meant to be under US control .

– Airstrikes by the US-led coalition violate international law as interference into the territory of a sovereign state can only be carried out on authorization of UN Security Council or on request of official legitimate authorities.
Russia is the sole country that is carrying out that operation on the legitimate basis at the request of Syria’s legitimate authorities.

To fund , train and arm terrorists used to be condered immoral, illegal and against internationl law. US did it with Mujahideen, then it created Al Qaeda, now it actively SUPPORTS Syrian Al Qaeda, and its actions have lead to the rise of ISIS.

This is a War Crime.   TREASON.

Obama weakening America's defenses .

America is Barack Obama's prey. 

He is tearing America apart and feeding the pieces of her life to his foreign and domestic fellow travelers.

  He is not transforming the nation but terminating it.  

Even the most transformational administrations haven't enabled the murder of Americans by declared enemies, weakened the national defense, mocked the concerns, and dimmed the hopes of average Americans as this president has. 

By Demoralizing and Undermining our Military,To Appease Enemies..

 No American president has ever done more damage to American national security or America's standing in the world than Barack Obama.  We've never had a president quite like him before.
