CLEARANCES don't equate to ACCESS

It's a SECURITY LEVEL, not a Clearance!


We keep seeing this drivel on the concept of CLEARANCES and Trump's canceling of Brennan's CLEARANCE, and suddenly, everyone who can spell it is suddenly an EXPERT.

A clearance is like a driver's license; you are tested, you are then granted authority for ACCESS to restricted information ranging from FOUO to Top Secret/SCI.

Our experience derives from commanding a unit composed of Intelligence Special Agents who trained others and conducted background investigations to determine the suitability of candidates for CLEARANCES, and all that entails.

We will now share with you the exciting details of what a CLEARANCE entails so you can SHARE with all the EXPERTS with whom you come in contact, and recognize the depths of buffoonery you see on all the "news" programs.

1) US Citizens [and an occasional foreign national] are eligible for a CLEARANCE adjudication. 

2) To obtain a CLEARANCE, one undergoes a background investigation, ranging from a LAC [Local Agency Check] and/or NAC [National Agency Check] to determine if one has a criminal or subversive background and is suitable for a position of Trust and Responsibility in the Military or in the Government, even for the lowest ACCESS.

 A two-year SPECIAL BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION [SBI] may determine if one qualifies and be ADJUDICATED for Top Secret/SCI ACCESS, and categories above.

[Notably,the background investigation on Senator Obama produced a recommendation 
that he not be granted a Clearance due to his association with known terrorists, and the 
lack of true documentation on his personal history; as such, he was denied access to 
classified information while he was in the Senate. As POTUS, he became the ultimate 
adjudicator and declared ACCESS for himself -- although much 
Intelligence was withheld from him] 


3) The CLEARANCE means you have passed the first level of the background investigation, when the investigator determines that one is recommended
"... for a position of TRUST AND RESPONSIBILITY.
 THAT IS ALL THE CLEARANCE IS!

IF THERE IS REASONABLE DOUBT FOLLOWING THE DETERMINATION OF THE SUITABILITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL,
the recommendation is downgraded to UNSUITABLE, and all ACCESSES are revoked!

The dividing line here is ACCESS! The CLEARANCE procedure allows the adjudicator to open the door to varying levels of ACCESS on the basis of NEED TO KNOW.

[As some of you may recall, Top Secret ACCESS was afforded, by Obama, to his driver, whom he then appointed to the National Security Council.]

LEVELS OF ACCESS:

1) FOUO: Basic administrative data pertaining to employees, their addresses and phone numbers.

2) CONFIDENTIAL [US or NATO], routinely granted to the lowest level of employment on the basis of exposure to some sensitive data -- e.g., family information of officials; basic information on Military units or logistics; SOPs, etc., generally it is information which is preferable to not release in the public domain.
[unauthorized release is punishable by fines and/or imprisonment]

3) SECRET,  (US or NATO)which entails occasional exposure to SENSITIVE material, the exposure of which could damage national security. There are multiple categories and compartments here, to include NOFORN (No Foreign Dissemination), LIMDIS [Limited Distribution], EYES ONLY (limited to only a few recipients],  etc.

4) TOP SECRET [there are multiple categories/compartments here].
ACCESS is restricted to a small percentage of those with CLEARANCES FOR ACCESS TO EXTREMELY SENSITIVE INFORMATION.  This category requires extensive background checks [SSBI], although a SECRET clearance can be administratively upgraded to a Top Secret level of ACCESS by a commander or senior executive

[For Example:
PVT Manning: Sex Change
Get Out of Jail Free!
Private Bradley Manning's clearance allowed him to access Confidential information, but was administratively upgraded to SECRET by his unit commander in the 10th Mountain Division to process Intelligence information. 

Another administrative order inexplicably upgraded his ACCESS to Top Secret/SCI, during which he illegally delivered hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks; he was court-martialed and sentenced to 35 years in prison -- but was pardoned by President Obama.  

Manning's chain of command suffered no punishment for their laxity in management of Top Secret Intelligence Information; that criminal case has yet to be pursued, although the 10th Mountain Division also produced the series of Commandants and Superintendents of West Point which allowed communists to matriculate and be commissioned]

5) SCI (Sensitive Compartmented Intelligence [restrictions are based on Methods & Sources of the Intelligence]. Each compartment requires a "Read-In"and brief, with a signed Non-Disclosure Agreement [NDA] as it reveals the Method of Collection of this Intelligence.
Unauthorized disclosure has penalties in excess of $10,000 and/or 10 or more years in prison.

 6) SAP (Special Access Program) One step above TS/SCI, requiring special conditions for ACCESS, frequently requiring a polygraph examination, and further background checks and updates.

7) Other [Special Access Black Programs]
An Adjudicator determines the CLEARANCE level of ACCESS. Another level of Adjudicator will determine ACCESS based on "NEED TO KNOW". These programs are conducted in the Special Operations arena, or, in highly technical operations (e.g., Project Blue Book).
The Need to Know caveat is extremely restrictive, and US Presidents [including Carter, Clinton, and Obama] were excluded from most of those programs.

IN SUMMARY:
The POTUS does not determine Clearances, or revoke them. It's an Administrative process.
On occasion, the POTUS will determine special ACCESS, and he can end that as well. To be clear, former Presidents and political appointees do not need Clearances to be granted ACCESS after they leave office.  In effect, the current POTUS can grant ACCESS if the expertise of these individuals is needed.  [Mr Kissinger should never be granted such access].

No further ACCESS for Brennan
In Brennan's case, Mr Trump simply cuts off his ACCESS, as he should to all former government executives and appointees.  He should also suspend "Clearance" granted to companies spawned by Obama appointees [e.g., Brennan and Clapper] to ensure they do not obtain ACCESS to classified material.

Jimmy Carter once granted ACCESS to a Colombian national on loan to the State Department; to our  horror, he was granted ACCESS to the Bureau of Intelligence & Research [INR] Library where he was reading highly restricted Intelligence reports; when we complained to the Librarian, he advised that Carter himself had granted ACCESS - even though it was a national security violation.

As Editor of the Black Book at the Pentagon, our access was virtually unlimited since a NEED TO KNOW existed about the Intelligence we reported in the Black Book - each level of which was tailored to meet the NEED TO KNOW ACCESS of groups of recipients, all of whom had ACCESS to Top Secret Intelligence, but, each group had levels of ACCESS to certain types of Intelligence based on SOURCES and METHODS of collection.

Very often, we would determine the NEED TO KNOW of the members of the group, which include senior flag rank officers and senior executives. 

Before retiring, we were offered the position of Inspector General of the BLACK PROGRAMs reporting to only one Assistant Secretary of Defense. On the advice of a close friend, we turned down the position since our friend advised that virtually all of those who had held the position were deceased -- indicating that, once one's NEED TO KNOW expired, one's utility expires as well.  [Our friend died of an incurable decease the following year].

We recommend to Mr Trump that he REVOKE ACCESS to ALL former Obama appointees, to include Admiral McRaven, who has now disgraced himself in the National Security Arena.


FOOTNOTE:

Under the Obama Administration, background investigations were contracted out to private company [USIS]; the investigations generally consisted of a quick phone call to a listed friend or neighbor asking if they would recommend the subject for a clearance. 
According to DOJ charges, USIS conducted 665,000 fake background checks between 2008 and 2012.

Among the USIS background checks were 3,900 IRS employees.

IRS and Congressional Insider Trading?


Testimony on Congressman Collins Insider Trading



This blog post is an extract from a NY Post story by John Crudele.  
We've made a few edits to keep it short, but the basics are all included.  
We highly recommend you read the entire story at the link below.  
Crudele advises he was able to vet the Whistle-blower, 
and is satisfied the story is accurate.


For full story, click here
New York Post,  John Crudele [15AUG2018] 

Ever wonder how a Congressman or Senator [or IRS official]
who earns less than $200,000 per year, 
can have an annual income of several million dollars, 
and retire into a lifetime of extraordinary wealth?

John Crudele explains below:

The IRS reportedly tipped off members of Congress to corporate takeovers and other pending actions so the elected officials could profit from Insider Trading.  Allegedly, higher-level employees of the IRS also used that information to enrich themselves.

[Congressman Christopher Collins testified that an indicted Congressman talked others into buying a pharmaceutical stock and pushed legislation to help it; his son's girlfriend was just nailed on Insider Trading charges.]

Until a few years ago Members of Congress were not barred from trading stock based on information they got while performing their public duties. However, following scandalous headlines in 2012
[you remember, when the News Media was credible], the practice was officially banned.

Mrs Peter Strzok -
Deputy Director -  SEC Enforcement
Interestingly, a page left unturned in this scandal is the one in which the wife of Peter Strzok [Melissa Hodgman] is the Deputy Director of the Securities & Exchange Commission Enforcement Division.

One might guess that in addition to blocking investigations into Hillary Clinton's money laundering schemes, Melissa might also have blocked inquiries into Congressional Insider Trading in exchange for Congress supporting Strzok's illegal activities and ignoring the criminal activities of senior officials at the DOJ and FBI.

It was assumed that Members of Congress were just profiting from what they happened to learn while working on their Committees — e.g., perhaps a drug about to be turned down by the FDA,  or that a company was exploring to see how regulators would feel about a merger.

However, what the Whistleblower alleges goes well beyond that.
[ The Chris Collins story provides further details on Congressional Insider trading ]

Did the Whistleblower report his findings to "authorities"?
He did, but was told to "get lost".  Apparently Congress was making too much personal profit to have some reported blow their illegal enterprises.

[Ever wonder why no criminal charges were brought against Lois Lerner?]

Chief IRS Scoundrel
Unprosecuted Sacrificial Lamb
According to the the Whistleblower, the IRS made their own illegal operation "legal".
“In 2003-05 an official Memo was created within the IRS  noting who was permitted to participate in ‘insider trading’. The memo noted that all IRS employees in the executive branch and those one step below (territory managers, etc.) were permitted to participate. I was below that rank by one step, i.e., a large-case manager at the IRS.  However, as my evaluation showed, I was expected to inform my manager of any and all mergers.” 

In fact, the Whistleblower says he was fired for not doing so and was later the subject of retaliation. That was a lot of years ago. And the only people who could properly look into something like this — and hopefully determine that it couldn’t possibly be true — would be in the IRS Inspector General’s  [TIG] Office of the IRS. That’s who is supposed to investigate allegations of wrongdoing.

So, Crudele called the IRS Inspector General’s media contact, planning to give them the information, and perhaps the IG could convince the Whistleblower to come forward or obtain more details in exchange for Crudele's getting an exclusive on the story if the allegations were verified.

Crudele's exchange with the IG’s spokeswoman was unexpected:.

IG Spokeswoman:  “Concerning..?”

Crudele: "A tip from a reader of mine about IRS wrongdoing

IG Spokeswoman: We get those on a regular basis; tell the tipster to contact the IRS Hotline.

Crudele:  "The tipster doesn't wish to do that"

IG Spokeswoman:   “All complaints are taken very seriously.” 

Crudele:  “Is there an insider trading exemption for officials in the IRS?” 

IG Spokeswoman: [Crudele advised] she said there wasn’t such an exemption and sent him a brochure.
“Once again, thank you for contacting us. Let me know if we can help further”

Crudele:  “I’m amazed at the lack of cooperation I am getting from you” commented, criticizing her laziness before finishing with “have a nice weekend".

IG Spokeswoman: “On background, we sorry you feel that way. We are not lazy…just careful”

Mergers & Acquisitions
Insider Information = Big Bucks
Crudele continued the Whistle-blower's story [details were excluded to protect his identity]:

“So then one day I was informed of a merger between (two big companies), I was the Case Manager on that audit; I refused to inform my manager.  Well, that was a sad day for my career.  He (the manager) first produced a memo and then suspended me for failing to inform him of the merger so he could tell his supervisor.  It seemed that the supervisor had planned to pay off his home mortgage with the merger information to the tune of $1 million plus.” 

"There’s something you need to understand. The IRS places its workers permanently inside many companies where they continually receive privileged information while doing audits. So there’s plenty of money-making tips to go around.  In addition my supervisor had planned on informing his manager who then could contact members of Congress so they could invest and profit from this information,.  It was a way of securing a comfortable job on one of the boards like the Smithsonian once they retired.”

Crudele advises: 
Consider how many individuals could have had access to this information and profited while the average American is told that it is “illegal.” The Whistleblower says he was pushed out of the IRS in 2004 and charges — trumped-up ones, he says — were brought against him. But he wouldn’t be surprised if this insider trading continued.

According to the Whistle-blower:
“Unfortunately I doubt that this has stopped. One cannot allow this to take place and then suddenly end it.  These individuals had planned and budgeted for these events to fund their lifestyle. That type of income generator just does not end.  It’s always hard to take away perks from employees. Just try stopping the free coffee at your office."

On a final note, which you may find of interest, my previous manager had assigned another manager to [a highly prized international] office for two years because she gave him numerous inside information tips."

Assuming Mr Crudele's story of IRS corruption alarms you, you will appreciate his parallel tale of Congressional Insider Trading based on confidential information presented in Committee Hearings.

Mr Trump's "Draining of the Swamp" comes none too soon, and it will create some soon-to-be impoverished Congressfolk who have lived large off their corrupt practices -- but will likely face prosecution and substantial legal bills this Fall.




----

Editorial Note:

We concur with Mr Crudele's story since we are somewhat aware that the IRS has not been pure as the driven snow; so, his tale of corruption comes as no surprise.   

We are also gratified for confirmation on just how corrupt our bureaucrats, and politicians [of both Parties] are, and how they've gotten wealthy through their corruption; it might also explain why we so much inaction on their part in pursuing the corruption of government bureaucrats and law enforcement officials.

During our post-IC career, one contractor told much the same story based on his consulting time with the IRS.  Among his lurid tales were IRS rooms full of tax returns which employees dutifully were flushing down toilets; and, then there was a unique scam the IRS operated in which they sent out a computerized letter advising taxpayers in the upper-six figure income range that they had underpaid by $800 to $1,800, correctly assuming that the victims would simply pay the extra rather than waste time reviewing their taxes or fighting the penalty. 
[We were one of those unsuspecting victims in 1997, and we paid the extra $800.]

We were also targeted by Lois Lerner's team, apparently purely out of spite since we have not been involved in a PAC, although we do admit to being a bit Conservative.  We fought back, threatening to bring the case public and to Congress during the Lerner hearings, and the IRS relented.

Finally, recognize that the IRS [and FBI] places their officers in US Embassies around the world, as part of the Country Team [Ambassador, CIA Station Chief, Defense, Political/Commercial, Economic, Agricultural Attache's] - each privy to sensitive Intelligence briefings on country and regional political and financial issues.  Officially, the IRS Advisor role is to ensure US citizens and companies operating abroad pay their taxes.  However, passing along sensitive Intelligence information to friends and supervisors is likely part of the abuse of the access the Whistleblower above has reported.

Brennan -- No Credentials

John, now here's what I want you to say next about Trump. 


We offer another guest post by a respected writer with the 
expertise for critical comment.

Charles Faddis is a retired CIA operations and case officer, and 
the author of Beyond Repair: The Decline And Fall Of The CIA“.


AN OPEN LETTER TO MR. BRENNAN 
By Charles Faddis 
Published in andmagazine.com [July 24, 2018] 

Obama and his CIA Director John Brennan

Dear Mr. Brennan,

I understand that you are a political opponent of the current President of the United States.



I understand that you are an American citizen, and you have the right to freedom of speech.

I encourage you to utilize that right. I encourage you to speak your mind.

I encourage you, as I do all Americans, to be heard.





I implore you, however, to cease and desist from continuing to attempt to portray yourself in the public media as some sort of impartial critic concerned only with the fate of the republic.

I beg you to stop attempting to portray yourself as some sort of wise, all-knowing intelligence professional with deep knowledge of national security issues and no political inclinations whatsoever.




None of this is true!

You were never a spy.

You were never a case officer.

You never ran operations or recruited sources or worked the streets abroad.

You have no idea whatsoever of the true nature of the business of human intelligence.

You have never been in harm’s way.

You have never heard a shot fired in anger.


You were, for a short while, an intelligence analyst.
In that capacity, it was your job to produce finished intelligence based on basic intelligence provided to you by others.

The work of intelligence analysts is important; however in truth you never truly mastered this trade either. In your capacity as an analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, while still a junior officer, you were designated to brief the President of the United States who was, at that time, Bill Clinton.

As the presidential briefer, it was your job to read to the President, each morning, finished intelligence, written by others, based on intelligence collected by yet other individuals.
Period.

While serving as presidential briefer, you established a personal relationship with then President Bill Clinton.
End of story.

Everything that has transpired in your professional career since has been based on your personal relationship with the former President, his wife, Hillary, and their key associates.

Your connection to President Obama was, in fact, based on you having established yourself by the time he came to office as a reliable, highly political Democratic Party functionary.

All of your commentary in the public sphere is on behalf of your political patrons. 
It is no more impartial analysis than would be the comments of a paid press spokesman or attorney. You are speaking each and every time directly on behalf of political forces hostile to this President.

You are, in fact, currently on the payroll of both NBC and MSNBC, two of the networks most vocally opposed to President Trump and his agenda.

There is no impartiality in your comments.
Your assessments are not based on some sober judgment of what is best for this nation.
They are based exclusively on what you believe to be in the best interests of the politicians with whom you have long since allied yourself.

It should be noted that not only are you, most decidedly, not apolitical, but that you have been associated during your career with some of the greatest foreign policy disasters in recent American history.

As CIA Director for Barack Obama you:

1) Presided over the Iran nuclear deal, which allowed Iran to escape from decades of containment and set the Middle East on fire.

2) Watched while Russia annexed Crimea and then reestablished itself as a hostile force in the Middle East.



3) Dithered and tinkered with organizational wiring diagrams at CIA Headquarters while China annexed and fortified the entire South China Sea.




The extent to which you are tied directly to the Clintons, Barack Obama and the Democrat Party is clearly evident in the emotional nature of your recent commentary.

Ever since President Trump was elected, there has been a concerted effort to delegitimize him and destabilize him. This has been an unprecedented attempt to undermine the stability of the Republic in order to achieve partisan political advantage.

You and your patrons have been complicit in this effort and at its very heart.

Now as the Mueller investigation collapses of its own weight and the extent of this conspiracy is beginning to become clear you are in evident panic.

You should be.

You are free to do as you wish politically.
Stop representing to the American people that there is anything else at play.

You abandoned any hope of being a true intelligence professional decades ago and became a political hack.
Say so!


Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul’s assessment of you stands:


John Brennan started out his adulthood by voting for the Communist Party presidential candidate. He’s now ending his career by showing himself to be the most biased, bigoted, over-the-top, hyperbolic sort of unhinged director the CIA ever had.

-----------



Ed Note:
Having served with the CIA as a Case Officer, a guerrilla advisor, and as Regional Intelligence Advisor in Asia (1970-74), and having received, among other forms of recognition, the DCI Exceptional Intelligence Analyst  Award, we feel qualified to add a few comments on Mr Brennan, based on both personal knowledge as well as feedback from colleagues in the CIA, DIA, FBI, DEA, and other IC agencies.

1) Mr Brennan first came to our attention when we observed him as the analyst at CIA's Terrorist Desk, which, at that time, was the lowest and least respected position in the analytical chain. He was then, as now, regarded as a simpleton, but, in that position, no one felt he could do harm.  His co-workers had nothing positive to say about him.  We all assumed he was a protected entity as his incompetence demanded he be fired, much the same as Bob Gates was viewed during his early years at CIA.

2) Dysfunctional and incompetent as an analyst, Brennan was inexplicably bumped up as an assistant briefer at the White House, again, presumably a position in which he could do no harm.

3) Alarm bells began going off when the professional Intelligence Community noticed he was was providing the Print Media opinion pieces on Intelligence - while a member of the Intelligence Community!  This was a first, and an appalling breach of security as well as ethics for any officer still active in the IC.

4) Still, he toadied up to Bill Clinton, who recognized Brennan as a "useful idiot", and potential tool for the future.

5) When W arrived on the scene as the new POTUS, he recognized Brennan  as a very useful tool, particularly in endorsing the bogus 9/11 scenario, pointing fingers at the IC for its failure.  Not mentioned was the fact that the precise details of the attack had surfaced in a police raid in the Philippines as well as by several other elements of the IC -- and all reports were stifled.  But, Brennan was quite willing to toady up to Bush in recounting the official version of the "attack" on the Twin Towers, in spite of the challenges to the story by highly experienced engineers who viewed the destruction of the Twin Towers as a carefully constructed "implosion".

6) And, like Bob Gates, he was well rewarded, and, without operational experience or CIA backing,  Brennan was appointed as the Chief of Station in Saudi Arabia, coordinating with the Saudi Intelligence on US Intelligence, and ignoring the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Middle East.

7) Although young toadies feel Brennan had some credibility, experienced professionals felt that Brennan had been emplaced from Day One by the Deep State to ascend to the highest level of the CIA in order to bolster as "Intelligence Community Fact" whatever nonsense was proposed by other IC leaders.  


Notably, both Brennan and Clapper became documented perjurers while serving in their appointive positions. 

We understand both their names are on several of the 50,000+ sealed indictments which will be served up in September.  

We trust they will be comfortable in their Gitmo cells.

Putin-Trump Summit Interpreted

So, I'll trade you my 12 Russians for your one Mr Browder and his $400 Million he owes us


It seems the News Media was so interested in attacking Mr Trump that they missed this rather shocking portion of the conversation between Mr Putin and Mr Trump.


Here is the extract quoted from Mr Putin speaking after he offered to let the US have access to the 12 indicted Russians; in return, he asked for this:

''Then we would expect that the Americans would reciprocate and that they would question officials including the officers of law enforcement and intelligence services of the United States, whom we believe have something to do with illegal actions on the territory of Russia. 

"And we have to request the presence of our law enforcement. 

"For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder in this particular case. 


Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over one and a half billion dollars in Russia. They never paid any taxes, neither in Russia nor in the United States and yet the money escaped the country, they were transferred to the United States. 

They sent a huge amount of money - $400 million - as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well, that's their personal case, it might have been legal, the contribution itself, but the way the money was earned was illegal. 

So we have a solid reason to believe that some intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest of questioning them. 

That could be a first step and we can also extend it. Options abound. And they all can be found in an appropriate legal framework."
----------

Editorial Notes:


Regarding the accusations of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election, Trump provided the carefully worded, non-committal response to entice the Media to once again make fools of themselves:

"I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place. Could be other people also. A lot of people out there    ..  
[In another context, a Professor "ACCEPTS" his students' term papers; but, he must grade them; in this case professional Intelligence officers beyond the reach of Mr Brennan and Mr Clapper regard the IC conclusion as so much politicized nonsense, and encourage Mr Trump to give the IC conclusion (term paper) an "F", and discard it.]

["... Other people" could possibly include Bangladesh or Luxembourg].

Trump added, 
“There was no collusion at all” 
 [thus dismissing the accusation that his campaign coordinated with Moscow in 2016] 

Trump advised that he meant to say he didn’t have any reason to doubt Russia interfered in the election:

“The sentence should have been, 
‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.’ 
 “So you can put that in, and I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself.” 

 In essence, Trump has said: 
 "I accepted the IC's paperwork [but not their conclusion] on their 'claim' that Russia meddled, but, there was no collusion. But, it could have been Russia [or, Bangladesh, or China]" 

 Well, what Trump said was clear as mud, but it covered the ground, and it fully had as much depth and substance as his reference a while back to "cofefe".

[Browder later (17 July 2018) tweeted: 
"Russian general prosecutor’s office wants to interview US special agents Hyman, Schwarzman and Angert, who were investigating Natalia Veselnitskaya’s Russian client for money laundering"]

[The Magnitsky Act:
Browder lobbied Congress to pass the Magnitsky Act over the Russian arrest of his accountant accused of fraud and money laundering.  Browder's lobbying persuaded Congress to create this legislation to punish Russian human rights violators and it was signed into law in 2012 by President Obama. The following year, Browder was tried in absentia in Russia for tax fraud and was convicted and sentenced to nine years in prison]

Interestingly, the linkage in this case seems to tie into the Clinton Foundation, which seems to be a common receptacle for a great deal of foreign "donations" while she was Secretary of State.

USSA - Almost!



The following is an interview by G. Edward Griffin, an ultra-Conservative
 and researcher of issues which have undermined the US.  His credibility 
has been questioned on a number of topics he has covered, and, 
oddly enough, in retrospect over recent decades and revelations 
by a number of very credible sources, Mr Griffin has been 
spot-on in his analyses in virtually every topic he's covered.

In this interview in 1984, he asks Yuri Bezmenov, a former 
KGB propagandist, to explain the Soviet methodology for 
subverting the US population and conversion to Communism.  
At the time of this interview, the Soviet Union was 
still strong and had not shown any indiction that it would 
collapse six years later, following President Reagan's 
encouragement of Soviet Premier Gorbachev to 
shut down the USSR war machine, and 
essentially defect to the West.

Little did he know then that The Establishment
would inflict a series of Presidents from
GHW Bush, to Clinton, to W, to Obama
on the US to complete the transformation
of the US to a Socialist/Communist society.


ED GRIFFIN: 

Well, you spoke before about "ideological subversion" and that's a phrase that I'm afraid some Americans don't understand. 
When the Soviets use the phrase "ideological subversion" what do they mean by it? 



YURI BEZMENOV: 
 Ideological subversion is the process which is legitimate and open. You can see it with your own eyes.... It has nothing to do with espionage.
Yuri Bezmenov - KGB
I know that intelligence gathering looks more romantic.... That's probably why your Hollywood producers are so crazy about James Bond types of films. 
But in reality the main emphasis of the KGB is NOT in the area of intelligence at all. According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such.
The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare
What it basically means is: 
to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country. 
It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages
The first one being "demoralization". It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. 
In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism....
The result? 
The result you can see ... the people who graduated in the 1960's, dropouts or half-baked intellectuals, are now occupying the positions of power in the government, civil service, business, mass media, and educational systems. You are stuck with them. You can't get through to them. They are contaminated. 
They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern [e.g., Pavlov]. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information. Even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still can not change the basic perception and the logic of behavior.
In other words, for these people the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people you need another 15 or 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society.
ED: And yet these people who have been programmed and as you say are in place and who are favorable to an opening with the Soviet concept - these are the very people who would be marked for extermination in this country?
YURI: Most of them, yes. Simply because the psychological shock when they will see in the future what the beautiful society of EQUALITY and social justice means in practice, obviously they will revolt. 
They will be very unhappy and frustrated people, and the Marxist-Leninist regime does not tolerate these people. Obviously they will join the ranks of dissenters; dissidents. Unlike the present United States, there will be no place for dissent in future Marxist-Leninist America
Now, you can get popular like Daniel Ellsburg and filthy rich like Jane Fonda for being a dissident and for criticizing your Pentagon. In the future these people will simply be squashed like cockroaches for criticizing the government. Nobody is going to pay them nothing for their beautiful and noble ideas of EQUALITY
This they don't understand and it will be the greatest shock for them, of course.
The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already for the last 25 years. Actually, it's over fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such tremendous success. 
Most of it is done by Americans to Americans thanks to lack of moral standards. As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him, even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents and pictures. ...he will refuse to believe it.... That's the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.
The next stage is destabilization.... It only takes two to five years to destabilize a nation. 
This time what matters is essentials; economy, foreign relations, [and] defense systems. And you can see it quite clearly that in some... sensitive areas such as defense and [the] economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic
I could never believe it 14 years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process will go that fast.
Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system train another generation of people who think they are living at the peacetime. False!  The United States is in a state of war; undeclared, total war against the basic principles and foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course - it's the system. 
However, ridiculous it may sound, it is the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not, I don't give a hoot. If you're not scared by now, nothing can scare you.
ED: Okay, so what do we do? What is your recommendation to the American people?

YURI: Well, the immediate thing that comes to mind is, of course, there must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of REAL patriotism, number one. 
Number two, to explain to them the real danger of a socialist, communist, welfare state, Big Brother government.... The moment at least part of the United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to FORCE their government... to stop aiding Communism.

EDITORIAL NOTE:
We have added links to such terms as KGB and Soviet, Big Brother as well as the names of world leaders such as Reagan, Andropov, and Gorbachev simply because the majority of young people who read this attended our depleted education system and have no recollection or awareness of the historical significance of these key, historical figures.  

This may surprise you, but ask the average 40-something [or younger] Liberal about any of these references, and you'll likely get a blank stare in response.

References to George Orwell and his predictive novel: 1984, will receive the refrain that it is about President Trump -- who has succeeded in derailing the Obama Administration goal of implementing 1984,

Money Laundering: Obama-Style



Obama's $1.5 Billion Scam
Click here for related story:
[NYT 09012011 - Matthew Wald]

Some of you may recall the Solyndra debacle, in which Obama declared he was promoting private enterprise, and US manufactured Solar Panels, to create jobs.  He invested $527 Million in direct loans from the Federal Financing Bank under the 2009 Stimulus Package to Solyndra -- by-passing the normal scrutiny by the Treasury Department auditors;  private investors, thinking this was a solid, federally-backed program, invested another $1 Billion.   After all, President Bush had blessed it in 2006, so what could possibly go wrong!

Obama visited the company in 2010, proclaiming it was "... leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future" and had hired 1,100 workers.  Below the radar, though, the OMB watchdogs noted that Obama had "... bypassed key taxpayer protections in a rush to approve the funds."

As federal auditors and investors watched helplessly, Solyndra executives were funneling the cash to offshore banks through bogus invoices to "partner companies" which existed solely to create invoices for future auditor review.

By 2011, the company executives had safely transferred virtually all the cash to a variety of offshore banks; they decried the Chinese competition as underpriced, and thus Solyndra was declaring bankruptcy and firing its 1,100 workers.

A flurry of "investigations" followed, but, with Tim Geithner running the Treasury Department, and Eric Holder at the Department of Justice,  and Bob Mueller heading the FBI, not much progress was made in following up with investigations, much less prosecutions.

So, you say, why reprise this scandal!
The depths of that corruption have already been plumbed, and there's not much to be done about it now except to wring our hands and say, "thank God Obama is out of office!"

But, wait, there's more!

Well, no one ever really created an audit trail on that $1.57 Billion.
But, we do know that Obama entered office with a net worth of less than $250,000, and left with an estimated net worth of several billion.  We are told that he was a frugal man and saved his money, and invested wisely.

So, where did it all go?

It seems the Solyndra cash, along with other billions of dollars from the stimulus packages were passed through shell companies to a variety of off-shore banks in the Caribbean, China, and elsewhere in the Pacific. [Other monies, directly from the NY Fed were transferred to European and Indonesian banks in 2008 by Tim Geithner - then President of the NY Fed].

And, what was done with all that cash?
We're slowly unraveling that as reports emanate from Trump's Treasury Department.

A lifestyle Obama has become accustomed to
at our expense
As luck would have it, Obama's CIA was managing Intelligence/ Interrogation operations in a remote part of Thailand, and, while visiting, Obama decided he needed a hideaway.

The house, on 400 acres, is in the Northeast section of Thailand, near Ubon Ratchatani, a former US air base during the Vietnam War.  AID had modernized the infrastructure of the area, and it showed growth promise.

So, Solyndra, using its ill-gotten gains, bought a comfortable house, accessible to a semi-private airport, with other attributes we'll discuss below, to accommodate Obama's international aspirations.

This is a swell spot to vacation, and to manage his Shadow Government if things get sticky elsewhere.  During his time in office, Obama visited Thailand six times, and in 2017, visited there another four times.  It apparently appeals to him.

But, aside from the obvious comfort levels, what else would take Obama to this remote part of the world!

As we've noted frequently in the past, there's more to Obama than meets the eye.

Before entering US politics, he was reared in an Indonesian Muslim environment, and listed as a Muslim student. When he came to the US with his mother, he was tutored by his Communist "father", Frank Marshall Davis who inculcated young Barack with Communist doctrine.  Once in the US, it seems that Obama's employer, the Ford Foundation, may have prepped him for the US political system, greasing the skids for a Blitzkrieg rise to the Oval Office.
Essentially, Obama is a double edged sword -- as a Communist AND an Islamic radical.

So, what, you might wonder; we already knew most of that history.

If you take his background, and his aborted attempts to create a Socialist/Communist state in America, he is likely on the same path on a global basis.  He has announced he would like to lead the United Nations [probably not a certainty at this point], but, what better background to start tweaking developing countries.  He attempted to create a totalitarian Communist state in the US, populated with Muslim Brotherhood operatives, Iranians, and Communists.  He and Hillary did their best to undermine and overthrow the governments in a number of countries, and was finally outed as a result of Hillary's Benghazi fiasco.

You may recall that Thailand has been beset by chronic Communist protests throughout the past decade, with a highly critical world Press condemning the Thai Military Government for its aggressive posture against dissidents.

Reportedly, a recent raid on the compound [quickly vacated] produced encrypted laptops,  $200 Million in gold bullion, and dozens of crates of Chinese weapons and explosives.

[The Thai government reportedly confiscated the estate under the provisions of the ASEAN Declaration to Joint Action on Counter Terrorism.]


That is not an aberration in either case, since the Communists have tried to overthrow the Thai Government since the mid-1950s.

Thailand was strengthened as a US ally during the Vietnam War, all the time fighting a Chinese  Communist insurgency supplied via Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos in the Northeast, and a Muslim insurgency at the border with Malaysia.

So, here, we get a two-fer.

Obama's Mansion is strategically positioned
The insurgency in NE Thailand was headquartered right across the Cambodian border from Sisaket during the Vietnam War, while supplies and cadre crossed the river from Laos to operate near Ubon and Nakhon Phanom [NKP][another US air base].

It was a viable and dynamic insurgent movement, with cadre recruited locally and trained in China, from which they would return to the region to recruit among the local villagers.

Mr Obama's Mansion is/was perfectly located to coordinate future insurgent paramilitary operations in this region already prepped for a renewed political offensive.  While in US office as POTUS, he appointed Glyn Davies as his Ambassador, who immediately upon arriving, began supporting dissidents and supporting enemies of the Thai state.  This was in tune with the unwelcome UN involvement in Thailand which drew extreme criticism.
[and you'll recall how well UN involvement in the internal affairs of South African has worked out.]

At the conclusion of the Vietnam War, a few stray bombs released from US F4s found their way across the Cambodian border, setting off more than 300 secondary explosions, disintegrating soldiers, food stores, and weapon/ammunition stocks -- and essentially ending the insurgency.

What we learned later was that Henry Kissinger, in 1972, assured China that the US had no further interest in the region and would not interfere in a Chinese Communist incursion.  At the same time, Henry shut down all existing and clandestine Intelligence networks, some of which dated back to World-War-2 OSS nets.  Without those established nets, it will be difficult to monitor the flow of political activists and insurgent cadre and combatants as they flow in from China to be guided by Obama -- and Soros.

To tie all this information together,  Solyndra used the cash it siphoned from the US federal loans and private investors to acquire a number of real estate properties scattered about in Southeast Asia, valued at over $800 million.  Given Trump's interest in these matters, we expect him to encourage other Southeast Asian countries to employ the ASEAN Declaration to Joint Action on Counter Terrorism.

Conspiracy of Historical Proportions?


How deep does the Conspiracy Swamp Go?


In commemoration of all those who have sacrificed their lives for 
the American way of freedom, and defiance of oppressive governments, 
we are posting House Resolution 907 which precisely documents the 
bulk of illegal and Treasonous actions committed by the Obama 
Administration during which he weaponized the US Intelligence 
Community against his political opponents, 
and against American Citizens

----------------------
We have highlighted key passages and added links 
to assist you in understanding the gravity of this resolution

House Resolution 907 appears in its entirety below:



115TH CONGRESS 2D SESSION H. RES. 907 

Expressing the sense of Congress that the Attorney General of the United States should appoint a Special Counsel to investigate misconduct at the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation, including an investigation of abuse of the FISA warrant process, how and why the Hillary Clinton probe ended, and how and why the Donald TrumpRussia probe began.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 
MAY 22, 2018 

Mr. ZELDIN (for himself, Mr. GOSAR, Mr. GAETZ, Mr. PERRY, Mr. DESANTIS, Mr. MOONEY of West Virginia, 
Mr. DESJARLAIS, Ms. TENNEY, Mr. MEADOWS, Mr. JODY B. HICE of Georgia, Mr. GOHMERT, Mr. ROTHFUS, 
Mr. JORDAN, Mr. BUDD, Mr. ROUZER, Mr. YOHO, Mr. BRAT, Mr. ROKITA, Mr. BIGGS, Mr. POE of Texas, 
Mr. WILLIAMS, Mr. DUNCAN of South Carolina, Mr. GIBBS, Mrs. BLACK, and Mr. ISSA) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


 RESOLUTION 
Expressing the sense of Congress that the 
Attorney General of the United States 
should appoint a Special Counsel to investigate misconduct at 
the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation
including an investigation of abuse of the FISA Warrant process 
how and why the Hillary Clinton email probe ended
and how and why the Donald Trump-Russia probe began; 


Whereas 
There is an urgent need for the
appointment of a second Special Counsel 
in light of evidence that raises critical concerns about
decisions, activities, and inherent bias displayed at the highest levels of the 
Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
 regarding FISA abuse,
how and why the HillaryClinton email probe ended
and 
how and why the Donald Trump-Russia probe began; 



Whereas 
the concerns of the American people are serious and the issues requiring an 
immediate, unbiased, independent, and thorough investigation are broad; 

Whereas 
misconduct during the 2016 presidential election by high-ranking individuals within the FBI and DOJ may have led to the premature conclusion of the FBI’s 2016 probe into then-presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton;

Whereas 
Mess with me and I'll Clinticide you!
during her tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton violated Federal law, and Department of State rules, regulations, and protocol, by using a private email server in her Chappaqua, New York, home;

Whereas 
official communications were transmitted on an unsecured server and included emails that contained classified information when they were sent, in addition to additional emails which were retroactively deemed classified by the Department of State;

Whereas 
FBI Director James Comey acknowledged that 65 of these illicit emails were classified as ‘‘Secret’’ and 22 were classified as ‘‘Top Secret’’;

Whereas 
there is significant evidence that the use of this private server by Secretary Clinton was meant to avoid compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and done to obstruct justice by not having to turn over incriminating emails in the case of a subpoena;


         
                Whereas

various sensitive emails subject to grand jury and congressional subpoenas 
were destroyed on Secretary Clinton’s private server through the use of ‘‘BleachBit’’ software and the destruction of hardware before they could be obtained by investigators in March 2015;





Whereas 
in a September 2015 meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then-Director Comey, the Attorney General instructed Director Comey to refer to the Clinton email investigation as a ‘‘matter’’, thus watering down the severity of the investigation and aligning the FBI’s rhetoric with the messaging of the Clinton campaign;

Whereas 
Cheryl has Immunity? Time for a Clinticide?



Cheryl Mills, who served as Counselor and Chief of Staff to Hillary Clinton during her entire tenure as United States Secretary of State, was offered immunityfrom prosecution by the FBI during this investigation in exchange for access to her laptop that contained many of the questionable emails;






                                                                             Whereas 
I don't need no stinking witnesses!

according to transcripts obtained by the Senate Judiciary Committee, former Director Comey was prepared to exonerate Hillary Clinton as early as April or May of 2016 when he began to draft a statement announcing the end of his investigation, before up to 17 key witnesses, including former Secretary Clinton and several of her closest aides, were interviewed


Whereas

former Director Comey contradicted these transcripts when he stated during sworn testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on September 28, 2016, that he made the decision not to recommend criminal charges for Secretary Clinton ‘‘after’’ she was interviewed by the FBI on July 2, 2016;






                                                                         Whereas 
Director Comey, in the final draft of his statement, allowed FBI Agent Peter Strzok to replace ‘‘grossly negligent’’, which is legally punishable under Federal law, with ‘‘extremely careless’’, which is not legally punishable under Federal law

Whereas 
Federal law states gross negligence in handling the Nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines (18 USC § 793 and 798);

            Whereas 

on June 27, 2016, Attorney General Lynch had a covert meeting with former President Bill Clinton aboard her plane on the tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona;

Whereas

on July 5, 2016,
FBI Director Comey violated 
DOJ rules and unilaterally exonerated then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a public statement to the media;

Whereas
one day later, on July 6, 2016, an announcement followed from Attorney General Lynch that the DOJ investigation into then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would be formally closed with no criminal charges;


Anthony and Huma

                           Whereas

in September 2016, the FBI, during an examination of the personal laptop of former 
Congressman Anthony Weiner 
as part of an unrelated investigation into him 
sending sexually explicit messages to a teenage girl,
discovered previously unexamined 
Department of State classified emails 
belonging to his spouse,
top Clinton aide Huma Abedin;



Whereas 


McAuliff and the McCabes
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe
was running for Virginia State Senate 
at the time and, as of October 26th, 
had received $675,000 in donations from the Virginia Democratic Party and 
Common Good VA, 
the Leadership PAC controlled by Democratic Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe
a longtime Clinton associate




Whereas 
an investigation conducted by the Office of the DOJ Inspector General noted that on October 27, 2016, Director Comey required that Deputy Director McCabe remove himself from a conference call regarding the Clinton emails discovered on Anthony Weiner’s laptop to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest after media reports surfaced noting these questionable political donations; 

Whereas
it took until October 28, 2016, for Director Comey to announce via a letter to the chairs of the relevant congressional committees that he was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton, an additional, egregious delay after the FBI failed to even examine the illicit emails after the FBI discovered them on Anthony Weiner’s computer;

Whereas 
further investigation into whether then-FBI Deputy Director McCabe and other FBI officials sought to purposely delay the release of these illicit emails for politically motivated purposes is warranted;

Whereas 
throughout the Obama Administration, the DOJ failed to fully investigate serious concerns surrounding former President Clinton, then-Secretary of State Clinton and the Clinton Foundation’s connection to Russiancompany Uranium One, which received Department of State approval to purchase U.S. uranium mines in 2010;

Whereas 
Another Mass Clinticide, compliments of Putin?
throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, a family foundation controlled by the Chairman of Uranium One made $2,350,000 in contributions to the Clinton Foundation which were not publicly disclosed in violation of an agreement Secretary Clinton had with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors;

[NOTE: Witnesses who could testify against Hillary died in a mysterious plane crash]

Whereas 
in 2010, while Russian State interests were working to both acquire a majority stake in Uranium One and to purchase American mines, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a speech in Moscow by a Kremlin-linked Russian investment bank that was underwriting Uranium One stock;

Whereas
a confidential informant who worked with the FBI to uncover bribery and other corruption related to the Uranium One matter was threatened with reprisal by the Justice Department under Attorney General Lynch when he tried to come forward in 2016;



Whereas
the Senate Judiciary Committee launched a probe in October 2017 to investigate the Uranium One matter, including whether Federal departments and agencies such as the Department of State knew the FBI was looking into possible corruption before the deal was approved;




                                                                   Whereas 
an investigation conducted by the Office of the DOJ Inspector General noted that a multi-State investigation into the questionable dealings of the Clinton Foundation with corrupt donors was shut down in August 2016, when pressure was asserted on the FBI by senior officials within the Obama Justice Department;

Whereas
the same Inspector General’s report also noted that shutting down this investigation into Clinton Foundation impropriety and influence peddling was connected to high ranking officials in the DOJ and FBI,
including Attorney General Lynch, Director Comey, and Deputy Director McCabe;

Whereas 
the same Inspector General’s report also found that Deputy Director McCabe, after consenting to the political pressure to shut down the Clinton Foundation multiState investigation, attempted to later use unauthorized leaks to the press to create a false narrative that he was opposed to the closure of the investigation and that he did this in an attempt
to salvage his reputation following revelations of questionable Clinton-connected money being donated to his wife’s Virginia State Senate campaign; 

Whereas 
in October 2016, the FBI and DOJ used politically biased, unverified sources to obtain warrants issued by the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review (FISA Court) that aided in the surveillance of U.S. citizens, including Carter Page;

[NOTE: Chief Justice Roberts, on 03MAY2018, amended the FISA procedural rules]

Whereas
these warrants grant U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies sweeping power to collect bulk information and conduct ‘‘about collection’’, which results in surveillance of a broad array of private communications from the past, present, and future, including those of U.S. citizens not specifically targeted in the FISA authorized warrant;

Whereas 
Steele - MI-6 Case Officer
to obtain these warrants, FBI and DOJ officials submitted an unverified dossier prepared by ChristopherSteele
to the FISA Court,
failing to disclose that Christopher Steele was hired by the firm Fusion GPS,
which was hired by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton
campaign to prepare this dossier and that the source was unreliable and was soon thereafter going to be terminated as a source;

Whereas 
the FISA Court was not informed
that Christopher Steele was actively opposed to the election of Donald Trump,
that he was the unnamed source cited in the media reports that the FBI used to corroborate his dossier, and
that Fusion GPS had been hired to perform previous anti-Trump research efforts in 2015;

Whereas 
the Woods Procedures, which are the FBI’s mandatory vetting process required for all FISA warrant applications instituted to ensure that all the facts contained in an application are accurate and verified to clearly support probable cause for a warrant, were not followed;

Whereas 
former Director Comey admitted in sworn testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 8, 2017, that material contained in the Steele dossier was known to be both ‘‘salacious’’ and ‘‘unverified’’;

Whereas 
since FISA warrant applications
- are rarely turned down,
- are almost never subject to appeal, and
- are presented in closed court with no public record where the Government is not challenged by
  any defense,
it is imperative that the Government take extra care to validate the information being utilized to build their case before they take the extraordinary step of waiving rights of a U.S. citizen without his or her knowledge or the opportunity to present a defense;

Whereas 
at the FISA Court, the Government has a responsibility not only to provide its best evidence in support of its case, but also to provide the best evidence against its case; 

Whereas 
these deeply flawed and questionable FISA warrant applications utilizing illicit sources and politically biased intelligence were approved by DOJ and FBI officials at the highest levels before being submitted to the FISA Court;


Bruce Ohr and his wife
Whereas
it was further not disclosed to the FISA court that 
the wife of fourth-ranking DOJ official Bruce Ohr 
worked for Fusion GPS and that
Christopher Steele directly transmitted the dossier and other information through Bruce Ohr for submission to the FISA court;



Whereas 
to this day there does not appear to be any evidence 
that President Trump colluded with the Russians 
to win the 2016 election; 

Whereas 
the initial FBI probe into the Trump Campaign and alleged collusion with Russia was launched in July 2016, based on questionable and insufficient intelligence and biased motivations;

Whereas 
former Director Comey prepared a series of seven memoranda containing classified information, including notes on his conversations with President Trump;

Whereas 
Comey's "friend" - now Legal Counsel
former Director Comey admitted in sworn testimony to the Senate Committee on Intelligence on June 8, 2017, that he had leaked this content to a personal friend and encouraged that friend to share the material with the press in order to trigger a Special Counsel investigation; 

Whereas 
an investigation conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee
later revealed that the personal friend of Director Comey was
Professor Daniel Richman of Columbia Law School and that Director Comey provided him with four of the seven memoranda; 

Whereas 
Director Comey’s actions are a clear violation of non-disclosure agreements he signed as a condition of his appointment and a clear violation of FBI protocols regarding the dissemination of sensitive information outside of the Bureau which are based on provisions of the PrivacyAct of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a);

FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Counsel Page 
Whereas
text messages exchanged between FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Counsel Lisa Page, during the period of August 16, 2015, to May 17, 2017, contain serious evidence of political bias and the improper handling of investigations within the agency;

Whereas 
the texts contain egregious evidence of bias against President Trump, including Lisa Page stating ‘‘Trump should go f himself’’ and Peter Strzok stating ‘‘F TRUMP’’; 

Whereas 
those text messages were not stored within the FBI archive system, an egregious oversight blamed on a technical glitch, and even after these messages were partially recovered by the Bureau’s Inspector General in January 2018, many unanswered questions remain regarding impropriety and bias;


Possible Political Bias?
                         


Whereas

in March 2018, former FBI Deputy Director McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions who noted that Deputy Director McCabe
  ‘‘lacked candor—including under oath—on multiple occasions’’ and
    had partaken in ‘‘unauthorized disclosure to the news media’’,
among other violations noted in a report issued by the Office of the DOJ Inspector General after a wide-reaching investigation into Deputy Director McCabe’s conduct;








Whereas 
a myriad of DOJ and FBI personnel have been fired or demoted, or have resigned, including
FBI Director Comey, 
Deputy Director McCabe, 
Chief of Staff to the Director James Rybicki, 
FBI General Counsel James Baker, 
FBI Agent Strzok, FBI Counsel Page, 
FBI Special Agent Josh Campbell, 
DOJ Senior Official Ohr, 
FBI Assistant Director Michael Kortan, and 
Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik;

Wherea
evidence has come to light that raises serious concerns about egregious misconduct within the DOJ and FBI rooted in political bias;

Whereas 
the DOJ, FBI, or both appear to have planted at least one person into Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign to infiltrate and surveil the campaign;

Whereas 
the DOJ has failed to timely comply with several related document requests by Congress;


FBI's Redacted Document 





Whereas

providing Members of Congress with 
heavily redacted versions of some but not all of the documents demanded and offering Members limited in-person viewing of these documents is an inadequate response to repeated requests after months of delay by the DOJ;








Whereas 
the mission of the Office of the DOJ Inspector General is limited to detecting and deterring waste, fraud, abuse, and misconduct in DOJ programs and personnel and promoting economy and efficiency in those programs, and a fully independent Special Counsel has greater autonomy than an Inspector General or Federal prosecutors to run a non-biased investigation and if necessary bring forth criminal charges; and

Whereas
the DOJ and FBI cannot be expected to fully investigate themselves regarding this matter:

Now, therefore, be it 
Resolved
That it is the sense of Congress that
        (1) DOJ, FBI, and all Federal law enforcement agencies have a sacred duty to uphold     
              our Constitution and to protect our country without any partisan or ideological 
              inclination affecting their important work; 
        (2) Congress acknowledges with gratitude that the vast majority of the men and women
              who serve within these critical agencies do so with the utmost integrity, independence,
              patriotism, and commitment to the rule of law;
        (3) Misconduct regarding FISA abuse, how and why the Hillary Clinton probe ended, and 
              how and why the Trump-Russia probe began should immediately be investigated by a
              Special Counsel who can act independently; and
        (4) The Attorney General of the United States should immediately appoint a Special 
              Counsel to conduct a thorough and independent investigation of these grave concerns.

Editorial Comment:

We have posted this House Resolution, with highlights and links to related stories, to educate those who are unable to follow this Byzantine plot line by Obama conspirators.  It is a highly convoluted scheme, acted out by some of the most corrupt persons in the history of they US -- who, coincidentally were attorneys who should face disbarment proceedings, and prison sentences.  

Most stunning was the fact that these attorneys [officers of the Court] held key positions in the Department of Justice or the Federal Bureau of Investigation -- previously the pinnacle of the 
US Justice system.

A series of Attorneys General committed the most egregious of crimes, beginning with Eric Holder's Fast&Furious debacle, and then Loretta Lynch's meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac, and later, [Acting AG] Sally Yates who, rather than expressing her concerns to President Trump regarding his Executive Order, publicly defied Trump and condemned his Executive Order -- which had been vetted by DOJ's Legal Counsel -- and so Trump fired her.  

The trail is now so convoluted that it is difficult to follow; we hope this post has made this coup plot a bit more clear.  There is far more to this scheme than this definitive House Resolution, but, there is still more to come, and these revelations will hopefully lead to the arrest and prosecution of all the conspirators -- beginning with Hillary Clinton.
