B. Hussein’s Domestic Spying And The Remediation Therof

The community organizer in chief was also the spook in chief when it came to anyone who opposed his plans.  His weaponization of the Federal Bureaucracy seems to have been most effective in the Justice Department and the Intelligence Community.

The Obama Use of FISA-702 as a Domestic Political Surveillance Program….

By sundance, the Conservative Treehouse

Now that we have significant research files on the 2015 and 2016 political surveillance program; which includes the trail evident within the Weissmann/Mueller report; in combination with the Obama-era DOJ “secret research project” (their words, not mine); we are able to overlay the entire objective and gain a full understanding of how political surveillance was conducted over a period of approximately four to six years.

There is little doubt the FISA-702(16)(17) database system was used by Obama-era officials, from 2012 through April 2016, as a way to spy on their political opposition.  Quite simply there is no other intellectually honest explanation for the scale and volume of database abuse that was taking place.

When we reconcile what was taking place and who was involved, then the actions of the exact same principle participants take on a jaw-dropping amount of clarity.

All of the action taken by CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey, ODNI Clapper and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter make sense.  Including their effort to get NSA Director Mike Rogers fired.

We already saw former DIRNSA Admiral (USN-ret) Mike Rogers response.  His successor just slammed the door.

BIG! – NSA Recommends Dropping Phone Surveillance Program….

By sundance, the Conservative Treehouse

Perhaps the weaponization of the NSA database was the biggest research project we ever took on.  That said, CTH prudence requires a lack of commentary.  For a background on this story see the [“SIDE NOTE“] previously presented HERE.  “The candle is not worth the flame.”

(WASHINGTON DC) The National Security Agency has recommended that the White House abandon a U.S. surveillance program that collects information about Americans’ phone calls and text messages, saying the logistical and legal burdens of keeping it outweigh its intelligence benefits, according to people familiar with the matter.

The recommendation against seeking the renewal of the once-secret spying program amounts to an about-face by the agency, which had long argued in public and to congressional overseers that the program was vital to the task of finding and disrupting terrorism plots against the U.S.

The latest view is rooted in a growing belief among senior intelligence officials that the spying program provides limited value to national security and has become a logistical headache.

Most of the “burden” seems to have involved preventing officials of the previous administration from abusing the tools and avoiding the legal and political consequences which revelation of those abuses would engender.
