What did Facebook purge with Wednesday’s reboot/outage?

On Wednesday Facebook was taken down for “required maintenance.”

The required action comes two days after the connections between Mark Zuckerberg’s deep ties to the Defense Department’s LifeLog surveillance program as I wrote here.

We have seen this all before with other tech communications services after drops have called them out for nefarious actions being taken on the platforms.

Google Mail was taken down the same week it was revealed that ex-FBI Director James Comey, Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch and other DOJ and FBI actors were using the service to talk through a shared e-mail address. The participants were just using drafts without sending the message in order to evade detection by the spy agencies.

The same scenario occurred with Microsoft’s X-Box platform with the same cast and others using the messaging system on the gaming site.

Back to Facebook, we see there are numerous federal probes into the company for violating hundreds of millions of users’ privacy by sharing personal information with governments, advertisers and device makers.There’s still probes into the Cambridge Analytica project during the 2016 presidential campaign as well.

The feds are crawling all over the company for new and older violations. The Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice and FBI have open probes.

The social media site is girding for perhaps as high as hundreds of billions of dollars in fines from assorted past violations.

So we don’t know what was perhaps purged on this latest Facebook reboot purge on Wednesday, but it appears that federal investigators already have the information they needed.

The Obama White House excuses are piling up

So Tuesday I wrote how ex-Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified before House intelligence committee that she did not recall being involved in the Carter Page FISA spying application.

On Wednesday morning we get story that former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper states ‘I Didn’t Lie’ to Congress About NSA Surveillance, I ‘Simply Didn’t Understand’ the Question.

Are you seeing a growing pattern of Obama White House personnel getting their alibis out into the public ahead of any federal charges being brought out.

Also this week we have Rep Jerry Nadler (D-NY) Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee sending letters to 81 individuals and groups associated with President Trump, demanding documents be turned over to the committee.

In US you pursue a crime and look for suspects, not have a suspect and look for crimes. The President is certainly within his rights to call this a “witch hunt”.

But how else can the Democrats keep the President on the defensive since the Mueller probe will come back with no evidence or proof that the President colluded with the Russians.

I can’t wait for ex-Obama CIA Director John Brennan to be the next official to come out with an excuse of why he was working with Australia, New Zealand, Canada and British spies surveillance of then-president-elect of the US after the 2016 election.

Loretta Lynch’s incredulous testimony to House over FISA spying application

Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch told a closed-door Congressional testimony last Dec that she had no recollection of signing FISA court applications to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Lynch, although acknowledging that her signature as AG is required, bit told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, according to Sara Carter who has strong Capitol Hill sources.

The ex-AG told lawmakers that her deputies, first Sally Yates, and then he renewal was approved by Rod Rosenstein. Other signatories were former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

In contentious testimony to Goodlatte’s queries, Lynch told repeatedly in many different iterations that she was aware the AG needed to be final sign off on all FISA applications and renewals, but had no memory of approving the spying of Carter Page.

Yesterday, I wrote about the intense spying application on Page.

The key to Lynch’s testimony is that the ex-AG said: “Don’t remember,” Don’t have a recollection” and “Don’t recall” are the answers she gave Goodlatte to his incredulous questions of how she allegedly delegated her responsibility as the nation’s top law official when it came to spying on an American citizen working for a Republican presidential campaign.

What Independence Day 2019 might look like after FISA release

Let’s say today’s date is Independence Day — July 4, 2019.

It’s been a tumultuous eight weeks as a sea change has taken over the political scene in the US.

Who could have seen the day when former President Obama and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton among others would face federal sedition and possibly treason charges as a result of the information in the declassified release of the FISA warrant applications in mid-March.

As I have written about numerous times, the Russian Dossier was a contrived plan brewed up by ex-CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to cover up earlier spying campaigns on GOP candidates Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz and perhaps other potential presidential Republican nominees. Both Brennan and Clapper will be tried in a military court as well due to the sedition charges and pending treason charges.

The question that will put both Brennan and Clapper away is How did the British, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian spy operations, as part of the Five Eyes cooperative surveillance program know what was contained in the FISA warrant? The secretive court is not even subject to Freedom of Information requests, yet foreign nationals knew all about its rulings against Trump campaign associate Carter Page and the two hop ruling.

The foreign spies knew the FISA court allowed the two-hop rule when spying on Page. This meant that anyone Page communicated with was subject to surveillance and then anyone that group communicated with was also a subject to the spies. So that gets you very far up the Trump organization, if not to the top.

The fact that Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch allowed the President to be implicated in this illegal spying operation — with assistance from Five Eyes allies — proves that no one in the White House believed Hillary Clinton would ever lose the election.

The fact is the information was included in Obama’s daily intelligence briefings and had audio and video surveillance presented in the Situation Room in the basement of the White House has put Obama in the cross hairs of two military criminal probes.

Trump was more than likely made aware of the Brennan/Clapper spying operation by the then NSA Director Mike Rogers, who is said to have told the President-elect to move elsewhere to form his transition team. The President-elect took his staff to his Bedminster, NJ mansion the next day.

And while the feds got Al Capone on tax aversion, Hillary will face much more criminal charges besides just improperly filing on Clinton Foundation tax situation. She faces multiple felony fraud charges.

This blockbuster news has moved the names we were hearing for months into the footnotes of history.  Ex-FBI Director James Comey and staff as well as DOJ’s Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein et al become bit players who probably gave up everything they knew and then some to get a better deal from prosecutors and/or tribunials.

The rumblings coming out of Federal Attorney’s office in Utah appear to implicate members of the media with collusion and collaboration with Democratic partly members. Fed prosecutor John Huber may have a monumental effort to bring these charges, he believes he has the proof to get around any First Amendment defense on the part of these “journalists”.

It should be a glorious celebration in DC this  Fourth of July.

Mueller, Horowitz to provide 1-2 punch on spying operation

Just as newly confirmed Attorney General William Barr is getting acquainted again with his Department of Justice office, we get news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s years long report may be presented in the next week or so.

We are told that Mueller’s investigative report must be given to Barr prior to the DOJ’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz releasing any parts of the unredacted FISA warrant information.

While the timing sequence is not explained, it appears that the Mueller probe will confirm that the Trump campaign had no involvement with the Russians during or prior to the 2016 presidential election.

The wild card in Mueller’s report is whether he will follow the money and detail the criminal activities within Obama’s DOJ in regards to the Carter Page FISA application beginning with ex-AG Loretta Lynch.

I have a sense that Mueller’s report will at the least set the table for the Democrat’s involvement in spying on Trump and his inner circle.

Then the Horowitz report will lay out the entire spying program beginning in early 2015 — way before any FISA warrant was sought or granted. This operation was allegedly conducted by Obama CIA Director John Brennan and ex-Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper.

I believe Horowitz can, but not sure he will, take this spy program all the way to the Oval Office as Obama received briefings in his daily intelligence reports on Trump before he even entered the presidential race.

The sequence timing is important for presenting the worst case of political criminal activity in the history of the US. Mueller, seen as a darling of the left, will provide the sugar, and Horowitz will deliver the vinegar.

That’s my take on the drop, we are told, “You will understand why in the coming weeks” but I just didn’t feel like waiting.
