James Clapper, former head of the CIA, stated that the U.S. government’s spying on political candidates, especially ones he doesn’t approve of, was a legitimate action.
Big Jim Clapper Wants You Watched
A Daily Caller article, “Clapper Defends Spying On Trump Campaign as ‘A Legitimate Activity’,” by Julia Nista, on May21, quotes him:
Clapper, currently a CNN security analyst, said he is not OK with Trump ordering an investigation into the DOJ, saying, “that’s actually a very disturbing assault on the independence of the Department of Justice.”
“When this president or any president tries to use the Department of Justice as a private investigatory body, that’s not good for the country.”
Clapper said he is concerned about “politicizing what is a legitimate activity, and an important one, on the part of the FBI. They use informants and have strict rules and protocols under this.”
You have to wonder what Clapper’s notion of “politicizing” is when the DOJ was a tool of the Democrats, charged with the task of finding “dirt” on Trump during his campaign –hardly “independent”! – and after he occupied the White House.
In the meantime, the Gateway Pundit, on May 2nd, devoted some time to the belligerent utterings of another ex-CIA director, John Brennan, in Christina Laila’s “John Brennan’a Latest Cryptic Tweet Has People Asking ‘Is This a Threat to Trump?’”:
Brennan is caught in a perjury trap over his statements about Hillary’s phony dossier in a May 2017 testimony to the intel panel.
Obama’s former CIA chief was also involved in setting up Russian espionage traps for minor players in Trump’s camp, according the investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.
Brennan posted a cryptic tweet Sunday which had Twitter buzzing.
A highly partisan, incomplete, and deeply flawed report by a broken House Committee means nothing. The Special Counsel’s work is being carried out by professional investigators—not political staffers. SC’s findings will be comprehensive & authoritative. Stay tuned, Mr. Trump.... https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/989870523042680832 …
Brennan’s latest tweet has people asking, ‘is this a threat?’
Yes, it was a threat, and not a very veiled one. It was a sneering , “Watch your back” advisory. Just as Clapper’s statement was.
“Professional investigators”? Professional by Mafia standards, one would think. Although the result of these “professional investigators” has been zilch. Their “investigations” were as fruitful as an Easter egg hunt in the Sahara Desert.
As Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who has been running in circles for over a year with an empty basket in search of prancing Russian unicorns, deserves the attention of a genuinely professional investigator and researcher, Diana West. In her latest column, she outlines Mueller’s brilliantly failed, bungle-rich, and politically correct career. Although he is touted as a “Republican,” Mueller is a “Rino,” or a Republican in Name Only. You could say he is the leading Frogman in the dark waters of the Deep State.
From the very start, FBI Director Mueller was not one to follow evidence where it leads. Instead, as the 9/11 record shows, he was one to divert others from where evidence leads….
West writes that in 2008,
Mueller’s FBI publishes Counterterrorism Analytical Lexicon. This lexicon is devoid of all words necessary to discuss, describe, understand and thus think about jihad, i.e., Islamic terrorism.
The words "Islam," "Muslim," "jihad," "Muslim Brotherhood," even "al-Qaeda" -- all of which appear in the 9/11 Commission Report -- have disappeared entirely from the lexicon of FBI analysis. Instead, agents must focus on the literally meaningless concept of "violent extremism." As if that's not mentally paralyzing enough, the FBI definition of violent extremism includes this: "An analytical judgment that an individual is a 'violent extremist,' 'extremist,' or 'radical' is not predication for any investigative action or technique.”
In 2010, West writes, Mueller ducked again:
As Congress was considering the Uranium One sale, Mueller's FBI allegedly hides from Congress evidence it had collected showing that Russian officials were engaged in a bribery scheme aimed at growing their atomic energy business inside the United States.
Boston Marathan attack. As with the Ft. Hood attack, Mueller’s see-no-Islam FBI was unable to interpret information passed from Russia about the "radical" Chechen Muslim Tsarnaevs. Too busy study see-no-Islam training materials?
September 4, 2013: Mueller's last day at the FBI. Enter James Comey.
So, whose side was Mueller on? The Russians’ ? Islam’s? The Clintons’? The Democrats’? Or that of the exclusive club of elitists, the Deep State, who wish to “run things” and collect all the gravy?
In the meantime, in a Western Journalism article of May 21st by Ben Marquis, Judge Jeanine Pirro spoke on the DOJ’s role in spying on Trump, pointing the finger at Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General at the time of the campaign to rid the country of Trump, as she was the only person who could authorize that a spy (now known to be Stefan Halper) be inserted into Trump’s campaign. But Pirro’s harshest words and contempt were reserved for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the obligation of indicting Hillary Clinton.
Judge Jeanine Pirro absolutely exploded at that news during the “Opening Statement” segment of her program Saturday evening, and pointed an accusatory finger directly at the ultimate overseer of the Obama administration’s FBI — former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
It was recently reported by The New York Times and The Washington Post that the FBI had used an “informant” to subversively question fringe associates of the Trump campaign with regard to possible campaign connections with Russia. That information likely served as part of the foundation for the Trump/Russia collusion investigation….
“Here, that would be liar Loretta Lynch. Lynch, herself, would’ve had to have approved of an informant on that campaign. And if she didn’t, then the FBI under James Comey was even more corrupt, going rogue in their attempt to destroy Donald Trump.”
Pirro also heaped plenty of criticism on current Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who she viewed as, at best, doing little to nothing to expose these dastardly deeds by their predecessors in the Department of Justice, and at worst being complicit in the wrongdoing and subsequent coverup….
We may never know the exact content of that discussion [on the Phoenix Airport tarmac between Lynch and Bill Clinton in June 2016] but we could one day find out that Lynch did indeed sign off on the use of an informant [Halper] to assist the FBI in spying on the campaign of a political opponent. Such a revelation would be nothing short of devastating to the supposedly “scandal-free” Obama administration.
You do get tired of having to review every little wiggle the Trump-haters have made to defeat candidate and then President Trump – an outsider and an antithesis of the Deep State, from the Steel dossier to Stormy Daniels – but you might also pause to ask yourself: What was in it for Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Lynch, Obama, MCain, and all the rest of the criminal sneaksbies, who comprise a cast of characters perhaps greater than that of Victor Hugo’s drama Cromwell , other than the chance to perform together a victory Conga?
Big Islam is Watching You
For one thing, the status quo of a managerial, totalitarian government, ready and eager to become truly “globalist” and safeguarding one’s place in the scheme of things – a genuine “scheme” in the sense of Al Gore’s global warming scheme, with one awarded , for example, the exclusive right to produce wasteful windmills and solar panels – would have been preserved and sustained. Conspiring to bring down Trump was a way of expressing their malice for anyone who says A is A, a malice felt especially for most Americans. “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely,”
Trump has proven that the would-be king has no clothes. Reality has impinged on the world of the Deep State, invaded its sacrosanct “safe space,” and caused its denizens to drool a lake of venom, a lake known colloquially as “the Swamp.” And the ghouls will never forgive him or the American people.
The ghouls want to watch you to make sure you submit, and don’t go off-script.
