If you rely on the government-propaganda outlets such as CBS, NBC, ABC, the New York Times, CNN, etc. for factual news and information, then you probably haven’t heard about the recent revelations this week which show that Donald Trump and associates really were surveilled.
Security writer Eli Lake reported for Bloomberg on former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice who sought the “unmasking” of names of people associated with Donald Trump’s campaign from “incidental” intelligence data. However, Mike Cernovich asserts that Lake and New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman were actually holding on to that information and not reporting on it because such information reflects poorly on Obama.
So it’s another example of how our mainstream “journalists” are really not journalists, but propagandists (and control freaks).
And now we are hearing, not from the corrupt mainstream media but from Daily Caller, that the situation is much more involved, and serious. Daily Caller reports:
Former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice ordered U.S. spy agencies to produce “detailed spreadsheets” of legal phone calls involving Donald Trump and his aides when he was running for president, according to former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova.
“What was produced by the intelligence community at the request of Ms. Rice were detailed spreadsheets of intercepted phone calls with unmasked Trump associates in perfectly legal conversations with individuals,” diGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group Monday.
Also on Monday, Fox News and Bloomberg News, citing multiple sources reported that Rice had requested the intelligence information that was produced in a highly organized operation. Fox said the unmasked names of Trump aides were given to officials at the National Security Council (NSC), the Department of Defense, James Clapper, President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, and John Brennan, Obama’s CIA Director.
Col. (Ret.) James Waurishuk, an NSC veteran and former deputy director for intelligence at the U.S. Central Command, told TheDCNF that many hands had to be involved throughout the Obama administration to launch such a political spying program.
“The surveillance initially is the responsibility of the National Security Agency,” Waurishuk said. “They have to abide by this guidance when one of the other agencies says, ‘we’re looking at this particular person which we would like to unmask.’”
“The lawyers and counsel at the NSA surely would be talking to the lawyers and members of counsel at CIA, or at the National Security Council or at the Director of National Intelligence or at the FBI,” he said. “It’s unbelievable of the level and degree of the administration to look for information on Donald Trump and his associates, his campaign team and his transition team. This is really, really serious stuff.”
“Serious stuff.” (YA THINK?!)
Frankly, the corruption of our “public servants,” those government bureaucrats and their little minions in Washington and the little Goebbels in the mainstream media, is extraordinary. But seeing all that exposed now, seeing all the leaking and whistleblowing by people who have at least some sort of conscience, and especially seeing the dishonesty of the mainstream media exposed, is very refreshing.
