The FBI Prostituted ItselfThe American Spectator

Posted by M. C. on January 16, 2019

https://spectator.org/the-fbi-prostituted-itself/

Citing unnamed “former law enforcement sources and others,” the New York Times reports that “in the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.”

The mainstream media has touted this story as major breaking news. But, to anyone who has been paying even a modicum of attention, it is crystal clear that Comey’s firing did not precipitate the FBI’s investigation of Trump. To the contrary, the readily available record facts demonstrate that Comey’s FBI began investigating Trump and his campaign for possible Russian collusion shortly after he won the Republican Party’s nomination.

Even though the Times would have us believe that the FBI investigated Trump out of a legitimate concern for national security, those same facts prove that, in launching and directing the investigation, the leadership of Comey’s FBI was engaging in partisan presidential politics to further their own selfish interests. Here’s why.

Recall that Hillary Clinton was supposed to win the 2016 presidential election. All of the pols, polls, and pundits agreed on that point. She was a lock for the White House… Read the rest of this entry »

Survey: Americans Warming to Use of Facial Recognition

Posted by M. C. on January 8, 2019

Trade offs! – Sheeple!

If you use Eazy-Pass or live in a city with the right kind of intersection cameras they probably have your mug data banked already.

The same government that is analyzing your face can’t tell dog hair from human hair and lies about it in court.

https://www.nextgov.com/emerging-tech/2019/01/survey-americans-warming-use-facial-recognition-tech/153987/

By Frank Konkel,

Americans do not favor strict limits on facial recognition technology, according to a new national survey.

A growing number of Americans are OK with the facial recognition technology, especially if it increases public safety, according to a national survey released Monday.

Conducted on a national poll of 3,151 U.S. adults in December, the survey found only one in four Americans believe the federal government should strictly limit the use of facial biometrics technology.

The survey also indicates Americans are more likely to support any apparent tradeoff to their own privacy caused by facial recognition technology if it benefits law enforcement, reduces shoplifting or speeds up airport security lines.

Only 18 percent of those polled said they agreed with strict limitations on facial recognition tech if it comes at the expense of public safety, compared to 55 percent who disagreed with such limitations…

The FBI Manufactured ‘302s’ before Mueller

Posted by M. C. on December 19, 2018

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/12/the_fbi_manufactured_302s_before_mueller.html

By Jack Cashill

The FBI calls its report of a given interview a “302.” This Luddite insistence on a written summary in the age of easy voice recording opens the door to all manner of misinterpretation.

In the case of the 302 that recreated the initial interview with Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in January 2017, that misinterpretation may not be innocent. To have any value, a 302 must be prepared within five days of the actual interview. That is FBI protocol as well. Last week, when Judge Emmett Sullivan ordered the Robert Mueller legal team to turn over the 302 for the Flynn interview, however, Mueller produced a 302 prepared seven months after the interview.

As Sidney Powell observes in the Daily Caller, there is ample evidence in the infamous Lisa Page-Peter Strzok texts and in the most recent Mueller filing that the FBI had prepared a 302 in a timely fashion. Strzok, in fact, conducted the original interview. That original 302 apparently has been lost or destroyed.

This is not the first time that the FBI — or some entity with power over the FBI — has manufactured a 302 in a politically sensitive case. In the case of TWA Flight 800, the 747 destroyed off the coast of Long Island in July 1996, the FBI and/or CIA manufactured second interviews with the three most critical eyewitnesses.

In fact, the CIA built its infamous “zoom climb” animation around a fully imaginary second interview with Mike Wire, “the man on the bridge.” In Wire’s case, no second 302 was put in his file, but someone did put counterfeit 302s in the files of other two key witnesses.

Forgotten FBI Anti-Terrorism Entrapment Debacles – James Bovard

Posted by M. C. on October 18, 2018

A Justice Department inquiry found that prosecutors failed to turn over more than 100 documents to defense attorneys during the trial, including a letter written by a convict who served time with Hmimissa that stated that the star witness had bragged about “how he lied to the FBI” on the terror-cell case

by 

The owner of the limousine company that killed 20 people in New York last weekend was an FBI informant who helped carry out two big entrapment operations against Muslims after 9/11. Prior to being recruited by the FBI, he was caught helping people cheat on DMV tests.  Before that, he was arrested for murder in Pakistan but escaped after someone bribed police.  FBI officially permits its informants to commit 5000+ crimes a year. But running an illegal limousine service that kills 20 people was probably not pre-approved. Actually, the FBI provided luxury cars to help get this business started in 2008.

Here’s a piece I did 14 years ago on FBI and Justice Department entrapment and other debacles in the first years of the War on Terror.

On May 7, the FBI arrested Brandon Mayfield, an Oregon lawyer, for his alleged involvement in the Madrid train bombings of March 11 that killed 191 and left 2,000 wounded. A U.S. counterterrorism official (almost certainly an FBI or Justice Department official) told Newsweek that Mayfield’s fingerprint was an “absolutely incontrovertible match” to a copy of the fingerprint found on a bag of bomb detonators near the scene of the Madrid attack. News of Mayfield’s arrest provided alarming evidence that Americans were involved in international conspiracies to slaughter civilians around the globe, and he was informed that he could face the death penalty for his crimes.

Why Nobody Trusts the FBI… and that’s a good thing | The Daily Bell

Posted by M. C. on October 8, 2018

More recently the FBI spent three years covering up evidence that they sent snipers to surround Bundy Ranch. They conspired with the Bureau of Land Management to suppress evidence favorable to the Bundy’s.

The FBI also performs warrantless searches of computers using paid informants on The Geek Squad.

https://www.thedailybell.com/all-articles/news-analysis/why-nobody-trusts-the-fbi-and-thats-a-good-thing/

By Joe Jarvis

When the FBI came out with a report on Hillary Clinton weeks before the 2016 election, Democrats were livid.

But so were Republicans… The report said that even though she had committed a crime by negligently using a personal computer for state business, she would not be charged.

Democrats later cheered the FBI as the Mueller Probe began investigating Trump. Investigations are the same thing as a guilty verdict, right?

And Republicans fumed when it surfaced that two agents exchanged anti-Trump text messages. They even discussed ways to subvert the presidential election and choose the winner!

And now Democrats are back to accusing the FBI of being a partisan tool used by whoever is in power. That’s because an FBI investigation could not prove a 36-year-old sexual assault accusation true.

Clearly, no one feels super confident in the FBI. And of course, we shouldn’t. They’re sketchy as all hell. Read the rest of this entry »

Actress Ellen Barkin: Trump Should Be ‘Removed… Not Just from Office’

Posted by M. C. on October 1, 2018

The Hollywood/Progressive position succinctly stated.

Barkin is not in jail because…maybe the FIB/DOJ aren’t all that offended.

Lucky for Trump is isn’t as easy as in 1963.

Actress Ellen Barkin took to Twitter on Monday and suggested that it wouldn’t be enough to remove President Donald Trump from office.

“this man should be removed…and not just from office,” Ellen Barkin said of President Trump. The Animal Kingdom star was reacting to a video that showed President Trump demanding that CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins ask questions about the newly minted trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.

Defeat the Deep State – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. on September 13, 2018

This isn’t about Trump. The stakes are much higher than the fate of his presidency and political fortunes. It’s about preserving what’s left of our old republic.

ie battling the military/industrial/congressional/bankster complex that wants to build an empire by assassination, invasion and regime change.

Gee Wally, that sounds a lot like John McCain.

…The bottom line is that the intelligence services of the United States, and top officials of the FBI, have indeed launched a regime change operation comparable to the dozens carried out by these very same spooks over the years from Latin America to the Middle East. Like most of these campaigns, it’s a multilateral effort, with the intelligence services of at least three “allied” countries involved. Co-authored with the Clintonistas, the Russia-gate hoax is their invention: it was the perfect pretext to conduct surveillance on a rival presidential campaign. For all the talk of “collusion,” the real colluders were the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign organization who utilized the British “former” MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, and his infamous dossier. This fake intelligence was used by the Justice Department to justify spying on Carter Page, George Pappadapoulos, and other Trump campaign contacts.

There’s your collusion. Read the rest of this entry »

How the Department of Homeland Security Created a Deceptive Tale of Russia Hacking US Voter Sites – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. on August 29, 2018

Ken Menzel, the legal adviser to the Illinois secretary of state, confirmed what Ozment had testified. “Hackers have been trying constantly to get into it since 2006,” Menzel said, adding that they had been probing every other official Illinois database with such personal data for vulnerabilities as well. “Every governmental database—driver’s licenses, health care, you name it—has people trying to get into it,” 

The FIB, DHS, your government lies to you again.

You need a program to identify the hackers. There are more hackers than baseball teams have legs. How many legs are wearing Russian boots?

by 

The narrative of Russian intelligence attacking state and local election boards and threatening the integrity of U.S. elections has achieved near-universal acceptance by media and political elites. And now it has been accepted by theTrump administration’s intelligence chief, Dan Coats, as well.

But the real story behind that narrative, recounted here for the first time, reveals that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) created and nurtured an account that was grossly and deliberately deceptive.

DHS compiled an intelligence report suggesting hackers linked to the Russian government could have targeted voter-related websites in many states and then leaked a sensational story of Russian attacks on those sites without the qualifications that would have revealed a different story. When state election officials began asking questions, they discovered that the DHS claims were false and, in at least one case, laughable… Read the rest of this entry »

DNC Says Reported Hack Attempt Was a False Alarm

Posted by M. C. on August 23, 2018

The DNC didn’t know it was going to happen. Then assumed mistook it for a Russian attack, then guessed determined it was a test-all without who really did it or why.

One person familiar with the matter…Oh THAT person.

The Michigan Democratic Party and DigiDems couldn’t be immediately reached…haven’t got the stories straight yet!

Don’t worry…the FIB is right on top of it. They will figure a way to Trump and/or the Ruskies. Let’s start with a racist/hate crime angle and go from there.

To paraphrase a progressive democratic hack-I am betting the dems won’t let a bunch of twits bungle an opportune mistake.

By Dustin Volz

A suspected attempt to hack into the Democratic National Committee’s voter database was actually a cybersecurity test, the organization said.

The DNC, which was hacked by Russian intelligence officers during the 2016 presidential campaign, said Tuesday it had contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation after being alerted to an apparent phishing scheme by the computer security firm Lookout Inc., which uncovered a replica of the login page to the DNC’s VoteBuilder database during an online scan.

In a statement early Wednesday, Bob Lord, the DNC’s chief information security officer, said the DNC and its partners who reported the site “now believe it was built by a third party as part of a simulated phishing test.”

President Donald Trump celebrated the news Monday that agent Peter Strzok had been fired by the FBI.

“Finally,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & longer.”
