Prove me wrong?
Watching and reading the news, possibly deeper than most, has proven to me that all of our government agencies have been unlawfully using security classifications to hide facts from the people. We get to see what they want us to see and this must be investigated.
Hiding anything from the public by every government agency is the scariest event in my lifetime. It is also factual that the major networks and publishers use innuendos, evasive methods to modify the news to fit their political propaganda objectives. I have lost trust in the news from television, radio and all newspapers and rely on the internet to keep me informed. Watching President Trump use the internet to express his positions has been refreshing. He obviously had some of the same concerns when he referred to Washington DC as a swamp that needed draining. He has been systematically addressing specific concerns and has chosen to express his positions openly. His actions to criticize the media when they spew propaganda is evident. His bold actions about the honesty of our own government has been refreshing.
Anyone who questions the clandestine unlawful actions by our own government is either blind, deaf, dead or a Socialist, Democratic Progressive. This definition also describes the upper level leadership in all or nearly all current government agencies. When the Department of Justice (DOJ) becomes the most questionable agency we have, America is in deep trouble. Even more troubling is when the Justice Department uses security classification to hide their actions from Congress and the President. Save this article and watch this unfold as it can’t be hidden forever. It appears that our current Attorney General Sessions has been gagged by his own people for a reason we will never know. What prompted me to write this article was an article written by Chuck Ross for the Washington Journal Friday. I will use some of his statements to reveal what motivated me to spend this Sunday writing this article instead of watching the final round of The Masters Golf Tournament.
“The Department of Justice says it will allow members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees to view surveillance warrants granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in what the agency is calling an “extraordinary accommodation.”
DOJ is allowing the access to the four warrant applications in response to demands from California Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence”.
These revelations should be very troubling for any American who loves our “Freedoms”. I can’t fathom how or why the DOJ can hide any document, even politically misused actions, from the Congressional oversight committees. This mistrust within our entire government operations is deeply troubling. Analyze the next quote from Mr Ross.
“Nunes threatened earlier this week to take legal action if the DOJ did not provide all committee members access to the four Page warrants, which were issued in 2016 and 2017 by judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court. Nunes also demanded that the FBI hand over an internal document known as an Electronic Communication (EC), which laid out the basis for the bureau’s investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government”
“WOW”. A Congressional committee may have to sue the DOJ for what must be classified “Top Secret” for some scary reason, WHY? The referenced, “Ross” article revealed that there was a subpoena issued to review the secret documents last August 24th from Chairman Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee. The DOJ and the FBI have not provided the documents yet.
The Ross article revealed that the DOJ has allowed two members of the House Intelligence Committee to view the FISA warrants. Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Trey Gowdy have reviewed the documents. Nunes sent four request in February to permit all members if the Intelligence Committee to review the Secret documents and his requests were declined. Another request has produced the following reply from assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd to Nunes Friday and is quoted from the Ross article;
“The Department considers this an extraordinary accommodation based on unique facts and circumstances. We are also extending this review opportunity to the members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence,” the letter continues.
“Nunes set a deadline of April 11, next Wednesday, to provide a copy of the Electronic Communication”.
Can you imagine how many more government agencies use Security Classification to hide information from Congress, the Media and the people?Inspector Generals.
I recently read that the Inspector General within the DOJ has over 400 people to make sure operations are within the law. If this is an example there must be over ten thousand
Government employees making sure everything that happens in the entire government is lawful. The same Inspector General for the DOJ and his 400 plus people have been reviewing the Clinton computer and cell phone debacle for over a year. The Mueller investigation of the Russian involvement in the last election is the closest example of bias I have ever observed. Fueled by the media it may last until they all die.
As most of the people who I worked with for 27 years in Aerospace for a company now part of Lockheed-Martin have passed away I will justify my knowledge of the security issues. I had security clearance for most of those years and spent many years with a Top Secret Crypto approval.
Watching our government operate these past few years has been a lesson on what not to do. The size of every agency seems to grow faster than our increase in citizens. When you see what we spend on illegals you can should be see why every agency grows. Some States now encourage illegals and prison inmates to vote to keep the the Socialist Progressive Democrats in power. I believe that at least 90% of all government employees are near rabid liberal Democrats. This is why we need more rabid conservatives to make up the government function on an even basis.
Trump has stayed on the path he promised to clean up what he called the swamp. What he has flushed out are many known as “Republican in Name Only” or “Rinos”. The biggest surprise for me it was John McCain who helped the Democrats keep Obamacare alive. If Trump stays on his promised path and the Rino’s keep voting with the Democrats it may stop the swamp draining. The only hope to keep America a Republic is for the people to finally force a vote for term limits in Congress. If that fails America will be Socialist on or before 2030 which will be my 100th year, dead or alive.
