FISA Judge in Flynn Case Blocks Oil and Gas Drilling – 500 Miles in Wyoming


Obama appointed US District Judge Rudolph Contreras blocked oil and gas drilling across almost 500 square miles in Wyoming this week

Judge Rudolph Contreras, an Obama-appointed judge from the District of Columbia, said the oil drilling projects must take global warming junk science into account. This fine fellow probably was never even in Wyoming, yet he’s going to shut down the whole thing.

But just who is this fellow? And where is Chief Justice Roberts in this whole thing? Why did Robert’s appoint all Obama Judges to the FISA court? Is this action by Contreras pay back for getting his fingers caught in the cookie jar with Strzok? Just something to think about.

The Judge’s name sure rang a bell with me.

On Dec. 7, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself from overseeing former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s case without providing a reason.

The relationship between Strzok and U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, who was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, was disclosed in text messages between Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, and obtained by Fox News.

“Rudy is on the FISC! Did you know that?” Page said in a text to Strzok in July 2016. “Just appointed two months ago.”

“I did,” Strozk said in response. “We talked about it before and after. I need to get together with him.”

The two also discussed how Strzok needed to be careful about what he discussed with Contreras to avoid putting him “into a situation where he’d have to recuse himself.”

Page said she couldn’t “imagine either one of your could talk about anything in detail meaningful enough to warrant recusal.”

”Strzok’s job as a counterintelligence agent meant that he interacted with the FISC on a regular basis and the messages reveal that Strzok and Contreras both made appearances at a recent “graduation party.”

The day after Flynn’s guilty plea, reports emerged detailing Strzok’s text messages with Page, and on Dec. 7 Contreras recused himself from the case without providing a reason.

“That explains why he recused himself,” former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia Joe DiGenova said, according to Fox News. “He knew he was a friend of Strzok’s when the case came to him. He should allow Flynn to withdraw the guilty plea.”

Enter one Judge Rudolph Contreras

He was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) court in 2016.

Current Chief Justice John Roberts has been in his role since 2005 and therefore he has appointed all the judges to the FISA court.  Knowing this, it is concerning that Judge Roberts also is responsible for the makeup of the current FISA court.

Every judge but one on the FISA Court as of today was appointed during Obama’s Presidency!

Five of the current eleven judges on the court are scheduled to be on the court for President Trump’s entire first term with six of the judges’ terms expiring before January 2021.  Seven of the judges are scheduled into the year 2020.


Robert’s is responsible for the FISA court, as such it has been reported that he oversees the court. One can only ask, where is Roberts in all of this and why has there been nothing done about the abuse? There is more to Roberts than we know?

See my earlier post:

Are the FISA Court members dirty?

According to ABC News:

More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved. From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

Finally, another very disturbing fact about the wire tapping request of President Trump is that the FISA Court turned down President Obama’s Administration’s first request to wire tap President Trump that was evidently signed off on by Attorney General Lynch.  With only two applications denied out of 10,700 from 2009 through 2015, the fact that the Obama Administration’s application was denied by the FISA Court the first time is very disturbing.  The odds of this happening are 0.02%.

    Abolish all these secret “Star Chamber” type “courts”! As J.F.K. said: “secret societies are repugnant to Americans and a threat to a free society…” He understood.

    The thing is: right now people are exposing themselves and others are being exposed for who they are. This is all part of the Law Of Attraction and the process of getting things straightened out. Out of chaos comes order.

    Great job connecting all these dots! I had no idea it was the Chief Justice who appointed people to the FISA court but now that I know it makes Roberts even worse than I already thought he was.

    I feel like we need to take our WHOLE government, including FISA court, etc., dunk it in soapy hot water and WRING IT OUT…………HARD. Am thinking very seriously about stopping blogging after about 15 years. I can’t get a truthful, helpful conversation going there anymore. People are afraid to criticize, to look at the facts…they tend to HURT us Conservatives who keep wanting to believe we’re in great hands……this McCain situation with Trump really got to me. He just keeps handing to the Left good reasons to despise and slam him. He even said the media makes him talk of McCain, but he mentioned him in the middle of an Ohio farmer speech………….
    Thank GOD he is NOT HILLARY. But look at what Hillary has stirred up…better to destroy America than for a liberal with her ego and POWER to lose an election.

        Wouldn’t that be wonderful. But, you know, it’s so clear to me that the Left has set it up where NOTHING can be considered truly wrong by THEM. There’s an excuse for everything and the Right buys it. They’ve ridiculed and nearly shut down FOX, beginning with host after host, they’ve ridiculed called us racist, islamophobic, too religious, gun nuts, every member of the Trump family is scrutinized to a point of completely bizarre….and let’s not even get started on Trump, though how can we blame them when he gives them a hand nearly every day in ridiculing him? Very tough… They publish every little gun story across the country in national news, they even said yesterday that they hadn’t heard the Trump birthday wishes to Barron! (as if he needs to do it publicly and they’re not happy that he didn’t?)!!!!, every little’s all a SET UP…Every latenight show, every talk show, nearly every classroom from kindergarten to university……all leftwing. Lots of salmon through which to swim upstream if we want this country to survive. If what I have described below is not VERY expensive lobbying for the DNC, I don’t know what is. Yet, is the DNC paying? 🙂

        The way the cards are stacked winning the WH in 2020 is if little consequence for the dems and the left. With the courts, the media, big money, a mentally deficient electorate and the weak kneed republicans their agenda had thus far been unstoppable and there is little reason to believe it will not continue.

        It’s grim Peter. I have been blogging for almost ten years. My own political diary… it has been so clear when I look back on the early posts….but I am up for the ride until they shut us down, and that will be in the not so distant future. When they blocked Zero Hedge I knew it was getting close.
