Biden administration develops spy network with tech to stamp out ‘White Supremacists’

We learn that a new system to “methodically track” domestic terrorism cases has been implemented that includes working with tech companies. They will work with them to “eliminate terrorist content online.” “Open Sources” is the operational code for spying. It’s all hands on deck to stamp out White Supremacists. Both DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and AG Garland are out there this week as Biden’s “wingmen.” Wouldn’t it have been so nice if Trump would have had half of a “wing man” that Biden has? 

If this whole business doesn’t send a chill down your spine, then you haven’t read any history. Of course this is all based supposedly on the January 6 incident.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration says it will enhance its analysis of threats from domestic terrorists, including the sharing of intelligence within law enforcement agencies, and will work with tech companies to eliminate terrorist content online as part of a nationwide strategy to combat domestic terrorism.

A report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence found that domestic violent extremists posed an increased threat in 2021, with white supremacist groups and anti-government militias posing the highest risk, officials said.

The new strategy includes enhancing the government’s analysis of domestic terrorism and improving the information that is shared between local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Administration officials said the Justice Department had also implemented a new system to “methodically track” domestic terrorism cases nationwide within the FBI.

……..

The government’s new plan also includes an effort to identify government employees who may pose a domestic terrorism threat, with a number of federal agencies working on new policies and programs to root out potential domestic extremists in law enforcement and in the military.

A senior administration official said the Office of Personnel Management was considering updating forms to assist in improving screening and vetting of government employees to make sure people who could pose a threat are identified before being put in sensitive roles. The official spoke to reporters on the condition of anonymity to detail the internal tools.

FBI subpoena aims at learning who read an online news story

This isn’t the biggest news story of the day but the ramifications are more than enough for us to pay attention. If we have any questions on how this story will end, wonder no more. Judge James Boasberg of secret court FISA fame is the judge who is hearing the case. He was presiding judge until May 21, 2021. Gannett, the publisher, contends that demand for details on who accessed article violates the First Amendment

From a secret FISA court opinion

Newspaper publisher Gannett is fighting an effort by the FBI to try to determine who read a specific USA Today story about a deadly shooting in February near Fort Lauderdale, Fla., that left two FBI agents dead and three wounded.

The subpoena, served on Gannett in April, seeks information about who accessed the news article online during a 35-minute window starting just after 8 p.m. on the day of the shootings. The demand — signed by a senior FBI agent in Maryland — does not appear to ask for the names of those who read the story, if the news outlet has such information. Instead, the subpoena seeks internet addresses and mobile phone information that could lead to the identities of the readers.

In a filing in U.S. District Court in Washington, lawyers for Gannett said the demand violates the First Amendment. They also complained that the FBI appears to have ignored the Justice Department’s policy for seeking information from the media.

“A government demand for records that would identify specific individuals who read specific expressive materials, like the Subpoena at issue here, invades the First Amendment rights of both publisher and reader, and must be quashed accordingly,” attorneys Charles Tobin and Maxwell Mishkin wrote on behalf of Gannett.

The case has been assigned to Judge James Boasberg, an appointee of President Barack Obama.

Back in September 2020 the Washington Post had this headline. Our man Boasberg was the man on the job:

FBI and NSA violated surveillance law or privacy rules, a federal judge found

Two of the nation’s largest surveillance agencies repeatedly violated either the law or related court orders in incidents reported last year despite training on the procedures set up to protect the privacy of U.S. persons, a federal judge found.

The FBI flouted the law and the National Security Agency ignored a rule to safeguard civil liberties when these agencies gathered or searched emails and other communications gathered from U.S. tech and phone companies, under a statute designed to produce foreign intelligence, ruled Judge James E. Boasberg, presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, in a significant opinion made public Friday.

“It should be unnecessary to state that government officials are not free to decide for themselves whether or to what extent they should comply with court orders,” Boasberg wrote in the December 2019 opinion.

The 83-page partially redacted ruling by Boasberg was released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. It focused on whether to approve a new set of rules enabling the FBI, NSA and CIA to continue collecting and searching millions of communications gathered from American companies under a law known as “Section 702” of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Though Boasberg was at times scathing in his criticism, he signed off on the new rules or “certifications,” saying he expected them to address the problems — a fact that dismayed privacy advocates.“

The FBI is really just starting to implement” some of its new procedures “on a comprehensive basis,” he wrote.

Sure Judge Boasberg, we know the drill.

BONUS:

Are the FISA Court members dirty?

…..

Most important is the fact that the FISA court only turns down .02 percent of requests. All day long yesterday we hear that the FISA court demands a “rigorous through review” before granting a request. Total nonsense. One has a better chance of being struck by lightning.

Companies are more than happy to monitor Conservatives for the government

Our fellow citizens are more than happy to lend a hand in rooting out all things Conservative. Glen Greenwald sets the record straight on what  the publication “The Intercept” is in the process of doing apparently for the government. Why else? Sifting through Gab they claim is a “far-right social network.” This after we learn what Biden is “mulling” doing.

Biden admin mulls partnering with private firms to monitor extremists

The Biden administration is reportedly considering contracting outside firms to track ​”extremist” chatter online in order to circumvent legal restrictions on the surveillance power of federal agencies like the Department of Homeland Security.

To get around restrictions, the federal government is reportedly weighing enlisting outside entities that can legally encounter these groups and gather information.

Working with these companies would allow the DHS to better analyze trends and provide more real-time information for its use and for the FBI, which also is unable to surveil US citizens without first getting a warrant or proving some overarching justification like a previous investigation.

The CIA and the National Security Agency are under similar restrictions.

Glenn Greenwald is one of the three co-founding editors of The Intercept. He was pushed out of The Intercept in October 2020 over the direction it was taking. He posted the tweet below and it’s worthy of making a note.

The Intercept is more than happy to pitch in apparently.

And how is this different than Wikileaks? Hacking US government is fine, but hacking right wing extremists is repulsive?

Tweet:

Glen Greenwald:

This is repulsive. The Intercept was founded during the Snowden story to defend privacy rights & oppose the security state. Now, the liberal DNC hacks who “edit” it are boasting they got personal data from Gab users & are sorting through it, doing FBI’s work to find “extremists.”

FBI Raids Anonymous Safety Deposit Boxes, Requires Identity to Reclaim Stuff

Here is an interesting case that doesn’t quite pass the smell test. I would think that with all the FBI has to do now with investigating Trump and the rest of the Trumpsters in America, a little bit of “avoiding currency reporting requirements” would not be high on the list. But what the heck. The FBI grows stronger every day and isn’t that the point of this? Just how far can and will they go?

In a case that’s already sparked one lawsuit, a Beverly Hills strip mall business which rents private, anonymous safe deposit boxes was raided by the FBI last month – at which time the agency conducted a blanket seizure of hundreds of customers’ belongings.

To retrieve their valuables, customers will need to “identify themselves and subject themselves to an investigation to verify their legal ownership,” according to the Los Angeles Times, which noted that one customer has already gone to court claiming that the government overreached by confiscating the contents of every security box.

The FBI and Drug Enforcement Agency took five days to go through and process all the boxes after the raid began on March 22, according to court documents. US prosecutors argued on Friday that while the original warrant remains under seal, the magistrate judge who approved it thought that the sweeping seizures were appropriate.

“The government seized the nests of safety deposit boxes because there was overwhelming evidence that USPV was a criminal business that conspired with its criminal clients to distribute drugs, launder money, and structure transactions to avoid currency reporting requirements, among other offenses,” prosecutors claimed in papers filed in Los Angeles federal court.

The indictment was unsealed on Friday – just one hour before a court-issued deadline to respond to a lawsuit brought by a US Private Vaults customers who alleged that the blanket seizure was unconstitutional.

The unnamed customer, listed in court papers as John Doe, said the search warrant should not have authorized seizure of the jewelry, currency and bullion that he kept in his three boxes at U.S. Private Vaults, because there was no probable cause to suspect the person committed a crime.

“Just as the tenant of each apartment controls that space and therefore has a reasonable expectation of privacy in it, each of the hundreds of renters of safety deposit boxes … has a separate reasonable expectation of privacy in his or her separately controlled box or boxes,” the person’s attorney, Benjamin N. Gluck, wrote in the complaint. –Los Angeles Times

The customer seeks to stop the FBI from requiring anonymous customers to reveal themselves and undergo an investigation to verify legal ownership of their valuables – with attorney Benjamin Gluck arguing that the government is holding his  client’s goods “hostage” until he identifies himself. Gluck pointed to a statement by assistant US Attorney Andrew Brown describing the procedure for retrieving valuables.

“Though Mr. Brown perhaps deserves credit for his candor, his announced plan is grossly improper and manifestly unconstitutional,” wrote Gluck, noting that Brown had previously conceded in court papers that some US Private Vaults customers were “honest citizens to whom the government wishes to return their property.”

“But the majority of the box holders are criminals who used USPV’s anonymity to hide their ill-gotten wealth,” he wrote. “To distinguish between honest and criminal customers, the government must examine the specific facts of each box and each claim, precisely what the anonymous plaintiff wants to prevent by refusing to disclose not only his identity, but even the specific boxes he claims are his.”

FBI Wray refused to discuss the death of Capitol Cop Sicknick – a repeat of Vince Foster Coverup

 

The refusal for Chris Wray to discuss the death of Capitol Police Officer Sicknick’s death at the recent Congressional hearing brings back shades of the Vince Foster coverup of his autopsy and investigation. Without a doubt an autopsy was completed long before any cremation of Officer Sicknick. As you will learn in the Foster clip below, the autopsy and investigation was fatally flawed in determining the true manner of his death. Worse the investigation was led by no other than Supreme court Kavanaugh back in the day. Which only goes to prove swamp creatures are everywhere and keep rising out of their snake pit to bite when the time is ripe. The so called Foster conspiracy theory was simply an elaborate coverup.

As to the one certain victim, we do know she was murdered.

USA:

U.S. Capitol Police identified military veteran Ashli Babbitt as the woman who was shot Wednesday amid a riot inside the Capitol.

“As protesters were forcing their way toward the House Chamber where Members of Congress were sheltering in place, a sworn (U.S. Capitol Police) employee discharged their service weapon, striking an adult female,” police said in a statement Thursday. “Medical assistance was rendered immediately, and the female was transported to the hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries. She has been identified as Ashli Babbitt.”

Note all the heavy armed and attired police on the side of Babbitt yet they did nothing. This is one angle but there were many views on other clips with police with heavy weapons and did nothing as well. Instead they backed off and turned around. I suggest a few shots in the air by them would have chilled the air. There was no one arrested in the Capitol with weapons. So much for the armed insurrection,

The video is age restricted. Click on “watch on Youtube.” Where are the questions regarding this situation?

 

 

 

Daily Mail:

The mother of the US Capitol police officer who died following the riot on January 6 believes that her son succumbed to a fatal stroke – that he was not bludgeoned to death by a fire extinguisher as reported.

Yet more than one month after Officer Brian Sicknick’s death on January 7, she has admitted that they are still in the dark as to what exactly caused that catastrophic episode.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com Gladys Sicknick, 74, was unequivocal in her assertion that Officer Brian Sicknick was not struck on the head and that as far as the family knows her son had a fatal stroke.

New York Post:

FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday refused to tell senators the cause of death for Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, whose death heavily influenced coverage of the Capitol riot.

Reports after Jan. 6 originally said Sicknick died after being bludgeoned by a fire extinguisher while fighting off then-President Donald Trump’s supporters, which authorities didn’t deny at the time. The claim became part of the impeachment trial case against Trump for allegedly inciting the riot — though his family now says it’s untrue.

Wray cited an “ongoing” investigation into Sicknick’s death.

 

 

 

A reminder how this is going to play out. Just as did the death of Vincent Foster.

Deputy White House counsel Vince Foster was found dead in Fort Marcy Park off the George Washington Parkway in Virginia, outside Washington, D.C., on July 20, 1993. His death was ruled a suicide by five official investigations,[1] but remains a subject of conspiracy theories.

We know about the JFK investigation. We were suppose to get the report released by now after many years but now they have extended the time. We know the drill don’t we?

 

Enter one Nancy Pelosi and the coverup begins:

Pelosi appoints a fixer Lt Gen Russel Honoré to whitewash the truth of 1/6 riot

In her letter Monday, Pelosi said, “It is clear from his findings and from the impeachment trial that we must get to the truth of how this happened.”

She added, “As we prepare for the Commission, it is also clear from General Honoré’s interim reporting that we must put forth a supplemental appropriation to provide for the safety of Members and the security of the Capitol.”

Now the fixer:

Enter Army Lt. Gen Russel Honoré

Just who in the world is he? Tucker Carlson let us know. The perfect addition to Pelosi’s swamp.

 

 

 

At the end of the day the names of Police Officer Brian Snickwick and military veteran Ashli Babbitt will be buried. Mere footnotes in a tragic ending to a bad story. Pawns of a set up. An overly exuberant crowd infiltrated and misled by ANTIFA. Commandeered by one Nancy Pelosi who refused the offer of one Donald J. Trump of 10,000 National Guard men and women. A woman who needed a death by fire extinguisher – an insurrection caused by a blood thirsty mob intending to take over the government. After all you must have blood and a victim. The placement of the remains in the Capitol Rotunda. Even that was odd and jarring. It took a month after his death? A month latter the ashes were presented for appropriate honor and respect by everyone who was anyone. You see it has to be death by fire extinguisher. And remain so. Otherwise the whole spectacle becomes simply the theatre of the absurd.

 

That is the best of the swamp.

FBI Sends Out Memo Warning White Supremacists Pose Greatest Risk of Violence

 

FBI Wray apparently is more concerned with the Right Wingers than Antifa and Black Lives Matter even though they are working their magic in Seattle as I write this.

 Antifa Releases List of Demands After Taking Over 6 Square Block Section in Seattle and Setting Up Armed Security Watch — List Includes Reparations and Ending Police Dept.

No matter. Apparently the Right Wingers cannot wait to start a revolution. Forget the Millions of dollars of destruction and Mayhem the Antifa has caused. Here tis:

White supremacists and racist domestic terrorists pose the largest threat of violence in the United States amid nationwide protests across the country, according to a new intelligence bulletin.

The bulletin — which was sent to local law enforcement by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and National Counterterrorism Center and reported by ABC News — warns of threats by left-wing and anarchist groups as well.

But it barely mentions Antifa as a potential violent group — though federal lawmakers have called for the loosely affiliated movement to be labeled a terror group amid nationwide protests against police brutality.

In addition, militias and right-wing racist groups are seeking to start a second American Civil War by targeting protests, according to the report.

“Militia extremists and [groups] who advocate a belief in the superiority of the white race have sought to bring about a second civil war, often referred to as a ‘Boogaloo’ by intentionally instigating violence at First Amendment-protected activities,” the bulletin states.

While experts previously told ABC News that the ideology of some antifa adherents includes anarchism — along with socialism and communism — mention of the movement itself in the bulletin is relegated to a footnote. It says, “Some anarchist extremists self-identify as ‘Antifa,’ a moniker for anti-fascist that is also used by non-violent adherents. Identifying with ‘Antifa’ or using the term without engaging in violent extremism may also be constitutionally protected.

“Militia extremists and [groups] who advocate a belief in the superiority of the white race have sought to bring about a second civil war, often referred to as a ‘Boogaloo’ by intentionally instigating violence at First Amendment-protected activities,” the bulletin states.

The document only mentions the existence of Antifa once in a footnote, according to the report, noting that some anarchists self identify as “Antifa.”

Representative Gaetz blasts Gowdy, Ryan for not using subpoenas

 

Gaetz nails Gowdy. On Friday as Hannity was wrapping up with Gaetz, Gaetz lays it on.This right after having Gowdy on with Hannity praising what wonderful questioning of witnesses Gowdy had done. Here is one of the best take downs from the weekend. Gowdy is now the big man on campus and has moved on to make his bucks at Fox. Are we to forget?

Of course Goodlatte and Gowdy moved on.

Two top Republican chairmen stressed Friday that the final report from special counsel Robert Mueller “must be trusted by Americans.”

In closing out their joint committee investigation into decisions made by the Justice Department, Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., took a shot at their Democratic counterparts for playing up concerns that their probe was a campaign to undermine Mueller.

“Contrary to Democrat and media claims, there has been no effort to discredit the work of the Special Counsel,” Gowdy and Goodlatte wrote in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, and the DOJ inspector general. “Quite the opposite, whatever product is produced by the Special Counsel must be trusted by Americans and that requires asking tough but fair questions about investigative techniques both employed and not employed.”

The two retiring Republicans said their committees “have assiduously avoided interfering with any ongoing criminal, counter-intelligence, administrative, or judicial reviews of conduct engaged in 2016 or 2017.”

MSNBC thinks FBI should track young white men, radicalize them and then arrest them

 

MSNBC compares young white men to ISIS recruits. Not only that, but support them in becoming radical then nail them. Gives new meaning to bringing in the thought police. A new low even for MSNBC

 

 

 

 

“When you’re looking at ISIS or you’re looking at radical Islamic terrorism, I covered a number of stories where the FBI would track young kids or young men and they would talk to them online and say ‘you know, here’s how you build a bomb,’ or ‘here’s where you get your bomb making materials,’ and they track that person as that person radicalized and then arrested them before they could do anything bad,” Tur said. “Why is the same not being done for white extremists or is the same being done and we just don’t know about it?”

Figliuzzi responded that it is “time to ask that question” and to “wrestle with it” because politics “does enter in.” He then mocked people who would defend the First Amendment and claim that this is the act of “thought police.”

New Jersey’s annual Terrorism Threat Assessment report, released Friday, raised the threat of “white supremacists” higher than ISIS or al Qaeda.

The network seems to believe that everyone who does not support Democrat establishment candidates is a dangerous racist — not only if you are right-wing, but even if they are leftists.

MSNBC recently claimed that “racist liberal whites” support Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. Contributor Jason Johnson made the charge last week during an interview on SiriusXM radio.

Lisa Page as ‘The Victim’ on Maddow show – videos

 

Talk about trying rehabilitation as a last result. She attempts to redeem herself on Maddow’s show. Did she do it?

The background:

Lisa Page filed a lawsuit against the DOJ last Tuesday for violating the Privacy Act by “unlawfully” releasing text messages she sent to her FBI lover Peter Strzok.

I can’t wait to see the depositions that result from this misadventure. That is if the FBI doesn’t settle the case and give her a few bucks.

Lisa Page and her FBI lover Peter Strzok unleashed the might of the FBI in an effort to prevent Trump from winning the 2016 election — but they both failed.

When their plot failed, they continued their attacks on Trump by joining Mueller’s team but were thrown off the special counsel in the summer of 2017 after IG Horowitz caught them exchanging anti-Trump text messages.

In what is believed to be the most damning text exchange between the FBI lovebirds was a discussion about an “insurance policy” to keep Trump out of office.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Andrew McCabe.

Here are a few clips of the interview.

Phil Mudd blasts ‘snitch’ a whistleblower who filed a complaint over Trump phone call

 

Schumer is aware that our government is run by a rogue agency. A politician has no problem threatening a sitting president on national T.V. Recall the interview with Schumer and Maddow?

Maddow asks “What do you think they will do?”  Schumer “I don’t know. The intelligence community is very upset.”  Well I guess we know now.

While Schumer may have seemed tickled in this clip with his astute observation, Phil Mudd who was a CIA and FBI official blows a gasket with CNN Cuomo. Videos.

President Elect Donald Trump sent a tweet on January 3rd 2017. The following is US Senator of NY Chuck Schumer’s response. That “the intelligence has 6 ways to Sunday of getting back at you [Trump].”

Chuck also stated that Donald was being very dumb to treat the “intelligence community” the way he was.

Dumb? Or was he willing to try and take them on?

 

Now we have come full circle.

Sept 19, 2019 | Phil Mudd – I am about ready to blow a gasket

CNN analyst Phil Mudd blasted an unidentified intelligence community official as a “snitch” Wednesday for reportedly filing a complaint against President Donald Trump over an alleged phone call with a foreign leader.

During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Mudd, a former FBI and CIA official, responded to a report from The Washington Post about a mysterious whistleblower complaint that involved a call in which Trump made a “promise” to his foreign counterpart. Story ends at about 3:35 on the clip then moves on.

 

 

The intelligence community official filed a whistleblower complaint with the intelligence community inspector general on Aug. 12 after reportedly becoming concerned about Trump’s conversation with the foreign leader.
