There was a great deal of news this past week about President Trump’s audacious disregard for the advice and warnings from his own intelligence community experts.
Perhaps there’s good reason for alarm.
But I think there’s one shocking aspect — perhaps a larger story — that’s gone virtually unreported. It appears that anonymous intelligence officials are executing an operation against the sitting commander in chief. It might not qualify as all-out mutiny, but it’s also not all that far from one.

Intel Officers: This is Treason
Kevin Shipp says there is a ‘civil war’ taking place within the U.S. government.
A group of retired intelligence officers from the CIA, FBI, NSA, and Justice Department held a press conference Friday demanding Attorney General Jeff Sessions prosecute leading Obama administration officials for crimes against the Trump administration. Continue reading
Trump announces strikes on Syria following suspected chemical weapons attack by Assad forces
The president did not specify a target for the strikes, but said the United States would aim to hit sites “associated with the chemical weapons capabilities” of Assad’s regime.
President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the United States military — in conjunction with France and the United Kingdom — to launch strikes on Syria in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad on a Damascus suburb last week.
The president did not specify a target for the strikes, but said the United States would aim to hit sites “associated with the chemical weapons capabilities” of Assad’s regime. Continue reading
Is the FBI Plotting its Revenge Over Memo?
A Former CIA Counterterrorism Official Has Told CNN That ‘We’re Going To Win.’
That senior officials in the FBI and intelligence community were outraged by the release of the House Intelligence Committee’s four-page memo on Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant abuse was a given, but a recent guess on CNN suggests the war against President Donald Trump is about to get much worse as a result.

MI5 Chief: ‘UK Facing Bigest Terror Threat I’ve Ever Seen’
Andrew Parker highlights the huge dangers now posed by extremists.
Andrew Parker said MI5 are investigating 500 live cases involving around 3,000 people, but terrorists are now planning attacks in days, making it very difficult to defend against them. Continue reading
Gorka: Nothing ‘hidden’ about the Deep State, it was ‘overt … in our faces’
The sheer number of serious national security leaks in the Trump White House thus far is a shocking “seven times” the average number of leaks in previous administration, said Sebastian Gorka, former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump.
In a Sept. 15 Judicial Watch panel discussion, “Exposing the Deep State,” Gorka said he preferred the term “Permanent State” and said it was not “a function of something that was hidden or deep, it was right there on the surface of our policy discussions at the White House. It was in our faces. It was arrogant . . . overt.”
“This is not just a reaction to a New York mogul who became president. This has been brewing for decades, truly decades,” Gorka said.
The Little Putsch That Could Beget a Great Big Coup
So let’s start with two obvious points about the whole Russia fiasco…
Namely, there is no “there, there.” First off, the president has the power to declassify secret documents at will. But in this instance he could also do that without compromising intelligence community (IC) “sources and methods” in the slightest.
That’s because after Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013, the whole world was put on notice — and most especially Washington’s adversaries — that it collects every single electronic digit that passes through the worldwide web and related communications grids. Continue reading
US spies reportedly keeping intelligence from Trump
The intelligence community is leaking their own reports, then calling it compromised information which cannot be fed to the President of the United States.
This will in turn keep President Trump uninformed, putting the entire nation at risk from internal and external threats, while psychologically waging war on the American public. Some of the public is smart enough to figure it out, some are not, and some are cheering for the demise of Trump. The latter two eventually bring about destruction of a state, especially those intentionally rooting for his destruction.
That’s how manipulative the ‘Deep State’ is. Poison pill after poison pill.
Sensitive intelligence is being withheld from President Trump by U.S. intelligence officials because they are reportedly concerned that the information could be compromised.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that in some cases officials opted not to show the president how it collected the information. The paper, citing both former and current officials, said the decision to hold back information underscores the mistrust between the Executive Branch and spies.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said he has heard about these concerns in the past. Continue reading
‘He will die in jail’: Intelligence community ready to ‘go nuclear’ on Trump, senior source says
The ‘Deep State’ has shown itself in one area, is now in the open with its intention: A coup d’état and overthrowing of the U.S. Presidency.
Here’s to hoping this is fake news by a fake Twitter account and not an infiltrated intelligence community trying to spark America’s second civil war.
U.S. national security officials are reportedly ready to “go nuclear” after President Donald Trump’s latest attack on the intelligence community.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday and Wednesday, Trump insisted that the “real scandal” was not that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lied about his contact with Russia. Instead, the president blasted what he said were “un-American” leaks that led to Flynn’s ousting. Continue reading
America’s spies anonymously took down Michael Flynn. That is deeply worrying.
As evidenced in this article, a voice in the political opposition of the Trump administration sees something gravely wrong with what happened to Michael Flynn.
If you’re familiar with Anatoly Golitsyn, his works (The Perestroika Deception, New Lies for Old) and his warning, you might give pause to think about what’s going on with the intelligence community. It is indeed infiltrated (see original post).

The whole episode is evidence of the precipitous and ongoing collapse of America’s democratic institutions — not a sign of their resiliency. Flynn’s ouster was a soft coup (or political assassination) engineered by anonymous intelligence community bureaucrats. The results might be salutary, but this isn’t the way a liberal democracy is supposed to function. Continue reading
Intel Analysts: We Were Forced Out for Telling the Truth About Obama’s ISIS War
The enemy isn’t at the gate. The enemy is within the gate. The enemy within the gate isn’t in the trojan horse. The enemy within the gate has left the trojan horse and is now doing its job of gutting America.
America itself hasn’t woken up and is following mostly the Kardashians. That small portion who aren’t following the Kardashians are three steps behind in thinking the enemy is at the gate.
America is being purged and in trouble with deep wounds that may not be curable.
The growing scandal over cooked ISIS intelligence just got much worse. Now, analysts are saying they’re being forced out for not toeing the Obama administration’s line on the war.
Two senior intelligence analysts at U.S. Central Command say the military has forced them out of their jobs because of their skeptical reporting on U.S.-backed rebel groups in Syria, three sources with knowledge of their claim told The Daily Beast. It’s the first known instance of possible reprisals against CENTCOM personnel after analysts accused their bosses of manipulating intelligence reports about the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS in order to paint a rosier picture of progress in the war.
Report: Clinton Emails Contained Intel From Government’s Most Secret Programs
Intelligence review finds ‘several dozen’ classified emails
Hillary Clinton’s personal server held emails containing intelligence from the government’s most secret programs, according to a letter sent by the inspector general of the intelligence community to senior lawmakers.
Fox News obtained the letter from I. Charles McCullough III, sent January 14, laying out conclusions of a recent review by multiple intelligence agencies which identified “several dozen” additional emails on Clinton’s server containing classified information. These classified emails include messages that contain intelligence from “special access programs” (SAP), which is more sensitive than information classified as “top secret.” Continue reading
The Ignorance Of Intelligence Agencies
In case you were wondering, these are a few (of many) reasons as to why on Global Geopolitics you will see the words “unintelligence community”.
The American and British intelligence agencies are in disarray and are often “shocked” at events such as a new North Korean nuclear bomb test. They’re shocked that the Russians have entered Syria. They’re shocked that Crimea was invaded and annexed. They’re shocked that now, China has weapons in space capable of rendering American national defense useless, so on and so forth…
In the not-too-distant future, they will be shocked again as the hegemony of the world is no longer their possession. The global balance of power is soon to shift.
At the start of the Second World War, Great Britain’s intelligence agencies were anything but impressive. Their analytic capabilities overestimated the Third Reich’s military potential through 1938. And then in 1939, they changed views and failed to see that the Germans were actually making effective preparations to that would enable them to wreck the European balance of power. This would bring the world close to what Churchill characterized so aptly as “a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.” [http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/churchill-hour.htm] Continue reading
US spies voiced concerns about Fed database prior to massive hack
Until a few years ago, however, Scattered Castles, the database containing security clearance applications for the US Intelligence Community, was not connected to the OPM database. But in 2010, new legislation aiming to eliminate the growing backlog in processing security-clearance applications required that Scattered Castles be merged with the OPM database. The proposed move, which aimed to create a unified system for processing security clearances made sense in terms of eliminating bureaucratic overlap and reducing duplication within the federal apparatus. Continue reading
German who spied for CIA stole list of 3,500 German spies’ names
The United States spies on Germany like Great Britain spies on the United States, or Israel spying on America. This is nothing new under the sun in the intelligence community, nor a scandal of any sort.
The only noteworthy point to make is that this is intentionally leaked all over the media as a propaganda piece. The means to what end this should achieve in particular is the only mystery at the moment.
A German intelligence officer, who was arrested last summer for spying for the United States, may have given his American handlers information on the real identities, as well as operational aliases, of nearly 3,500 German intelligence operatives.
In July, Germany expelled the Central Intelligence Agency station chief in Berlin, following the arrest of Marcus R., a 31-year-old, low-level clerk at the Bundesnachrichtendienst, or BND, Germany’s external intelligence agency. Continue reading
