Gorka: Nothing ‘hidden’ about the Deep State, it was ‘overt … in our faces’

Sebastian Gorka: ‘I’ve seen the worst of the worst, the first seven months, of how the bureaucracy responded to the administration of Donald J. Trump.’

 

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.

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

Norway probes intercept equipment found near PM’s home

Any top intelligence agency worthy of respect is not going to just leave these devices in plain site. However, on the other hand, any intelligence agency worthy of respect would leave these around in plain site to stir up national concern and mess with the minds of an entire nation, raise doubts about their security and how much faith they can have in their respective government regarding its ability to protect its citizens. In the intelligence community, this sort of espionage is referred to as psych ops.

 

Authorities in Norway are probing a possible espionage operation by a foreign intelligence agency, following the discovery of several electronic surveillance devices located near government buildings in downtown Oslo. The presence of the devices was revealed on December 12 in a leading article by Norwegian daily newspaper Aftenposten, which published the findings of what it said was a two-month technical investigation into the matter.

What Happens When Spies Can Eavesdrop on Any Conversation?

Imagine having access to the all of the world’s recorded conversations, videos that people have posted to YouTube, in addition to chatter collected by random microphones in public places. Then picture the possibility of searching that dataset for clues related to terms that you are interested in the same way you search Google. You could look up, for example, who was having a conversation right now about plastic explosives, about a particular flight departing from Islamabad, about Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in reference to a particular area of Northern Iraq.

On Nov. 17, the U.S. announced a new challenge called Automatic Speech recognition in Reverberant Environments, giving it the acronym ASpIRE. The challenge comes from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, or ODNI, and the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency, or IARPA. It speaks to a major opportunity for intelligence collection in the years ahead, teaching machines to scan the ever-expanding world of recorded speech. To do that, researchers will need to take a decades’ old technology, computerized speech recognition, and re-invent it from scratch. Continue reading

EXPOSED: Vladimir Putin’s secret plot to RULE Europe

Europe is already a lost continent if you’ve learned that socialism is a bridge to communism. Now all Putin’s doing is reigning it in.

 

German intelligence sources claim the country’s only mildly-eurosceptic party, Alternative for Germany (AfD), is being wooed by Russian agents as part of the campaign “to construct a network of right-wing populism in western Europe.”

According to BILD, Moscow’s Centre for Strategic Communications has drafted the blueprint for the covert operation under the title: “Putin: the new leader of international conservatism”.

Part of the Kremlin strategy includes acquiring gold dealerships through front companies to support parties friendly to it.
