The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins
Observer, by John R. Schindler

Original Article

Posted By:TunnelEffect, 2/12/2017 5:01:37 PM

In a recent column, I explained how the still-forming Trump administration is already doing serious harm to America’s longstanding global intelligence partnerships. In particular, fears that the White House is too friendly to Moscow are causing close allies to curtail some of their espionage relationships with Washington—a development with grave implications for international security, particularly in the all-important realm of counterterrorism. Now those concerns are causing problems much closer to home (snip) Our Intelligence Community is so worried (snip) it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust.

Hey John, are you making this up out of thin air and using the meme, ´un-named sources´?

Name names...

Sorry, I don´t believe there is a Spy Revolt. There may be a revolting ex-spy that might not like The Donald, but, my friends in the law enforcement community are very happy The Donald is our President and not Mrs. C and especially thankful that the O is out of office.

More fake news? Any facts to back up these statements? Attempting to delegitimize a legally elected president is sedition... and should be punished accordingly.

No doubt there is a significant infestation of muzz friendly Dimmis everywhere at fedgov, including at the CIA etc.

Galvanizing these Dimmis as "spys" or other useful, patriotic folks is just more Dimmi smoke and mirrors.

The problem here is even if some of this is true,the press has been so thoroughly discredited by their over the top bias against Trump, as well as their conspiring with the Clinton campaign during the election, that I certainly don´t believe anything anymore that is sourced from them. The author cites The Washington Post and CNN as his sources. Really? REALLY? Are you kidding me?

Moreover, because the Obama administration thugs are peppered through the federal bureaucracy combined with campaign contributions that showed they were Hillary supporters, who can believe anything these bureaucrats have to say?

Truly, this is a dangerous situation because trying to keep a curious mind, what if even a modicum of some of the accusations is true? I don´t believe they are true, but for argument´s sake, information has been so corrupted that we cannot believe anything anymore. Very, very dangerous.

#9 hit it right on the nose! Good! Never believe anything you see, hear, dream, imagine, guess, in forming your honest Citizen´s opinion! Research the sources, and there are many fairly reliable news sources around, but one must look for them, and use a bit of logic and rationality when choosing! Poor pity bitter, commie Dems! Having been fed so much BS over the last 8 years that no one knows which way is up, anymore!!!! President Trump, and his honest staff and Cabinet, have the immense task of, yes, DRAINING THE SWAMP, which may take a few more days! God bless America!

Well they claim that a bunch of US intelligence agencies were bugging the Russian Ambassador´s communications systems along with General Flynn´s telephone. If that is true, the intelligence people who leaked such information would have been releasing highly classified information in an unauthorized manner and would be subject to arrest and criminal prosecution. Investigations should have already been started.

Sounds like fake news. It was not against the law for General Flynn or any other American to talk with the Russian Ambassador, even about the sanctions that President Obama initiated against Russia. At the time that supposed conversation occurred President Trump had been elected and was waiting to assume office and at that time neither Trump or his future staff had any authority to lift those sanctions. To this day Trump has not lifted any sanctions against Russia.

After Trump was elected, Obama should have consulted with Trump when he decided to impose those sanctions a couple of weeks before leaving office, but apparently Obama did not, and in effect planted a minefield in Russia and USA bilateral relations that Trump was going to have to navigate after assuming office. So why would not Trump want to ask the Russians not to overreact to Obama´s last minute sanction imposition?

The U.S. Espionage service is a tool of the U.S., first formost and always. If there are U.S. intelligence agents who wish to argue the point, they need a bullet in the head. It´s not open for debate. It´s not acceptable for you to decide policy.

You tell us where the threats are. We through those we elected will decide what to do about them.

Personally, though, I think this is more fake new. The field personnelcould not have been happy with an Administration that treated them like expendable tokens to advance the Administration´s political careers.

Currently spies are someone who sits around gathering info from devices and the old fashion ones -- Those hands on operators are too few.
Probably for now the best ones belong to the military as only they put America first.
Since P. Trump is running circles around and over his progressive enemies we can bet the revolting ones are all merely secret squirrels as the military intelligence agents used to call them.

I smell a rat -

surely members of our intelligence community were worried about the low regard the Obama administration held for those who put their lives on the line - the cavalier approach to information security that endangered people, operations and eroded trust

1. Benghazi
2. CableGate - State Department cables from 1966 forward were hacked - HOW did they become hacked? Surely since the days of Dean Rusk, they sere in a vault under lock and key but SOMEHOW were put on Hillary´s server to become hackable.
3. The role of Seal Team Six in the raid on Osama Bin Laden´s compound
4. The revelation of the identity of the doctor in Pakistan who helped in the confirmation of the location of Osama Bin Laden
5. The lack of oversight exercised by the House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee chaired by Mike Rogers (he decided to not seek another term in Congress and went on to become a television producer for CNN´s program, "Declassified"). Why didn´t this House committee under his chairmanship do anything about CableGate or Benghazi?
6. The failure to act on a warning from Russia about the Tsarnaev Brothers

these are just a few things that were worrisome - why would the intelligence community want to see Hillary Clinton as Commander in Chief?

This has the smell of ground work to blame Trump for any terror attack that can be traced back to the influx of refugees from the countries covered by the EO and botched by the 9th circus. Anything to give air cover for those fools in black robes.

The media and clear thinking dems ( a small no. to be sure) know full well the danger that lurks.

My problem is that I don´t trust our intelligence agencies.

Sure, I trust them to uncover the occasional plot and the characters behind it. That can save lives.

But I don´t trust them for the big picture. They try to predict what China or Russia will do. What Iran will do. What ISIS will do. I don´t think they can do any better than I could by observing the past, sitting in front of a crystal ball, and filling in the huge gaps of getting to the future with my opinion.

They then act like not following their advice will lead to doom for the Country. They are making educated, and sometimes biased guesses and they can sometimes be quite wrong. It´s like business analysts predicting (often with bias, remember Windows 8?) the market with absolute certitude, being completely wrong, and companies that believed them going out of business.

What these agencies fear is someone like Trump not hanging on their every word and acting on it. If they are being cautious it is because they don´t want to be exposed as simply guessing at what they are saying.

Predicting the future is NEVER certain, even when those that do INSIST that they are sure of their predictions.

This started before Trump was elected. There are two warring factions in the Intelligence community. Trump threw in with the Generals who were willing to fight against the system.

These sorts of ´inside beltway hit-pieces´ seem to occur at the inception of every Republican Presidency (never Democrats), and are usually instigated by some thin-skinned ultra-political, Democrat hack, higher-level appointee who runs his mouth to any sympathetic journ_O_list, until he scores a hit (e.g. Mr. Valerie Plame). These are the pampered ´princes´ of the Beltway Bourgeoisie.

I cannot take seriously anyone talking about security issues the Trump Administration allegedly has when Hillary is still NOT LOCKED UP for using a private email server with less security than a gmail account.

Want to talk about inattention to security? Talk Hillary and her damned server. Talk Hillary and Benghazi. The list goes on and on and on.

The thing that jumped out at me was the author´s continue use of the name SIGINIT. That was a secure phone system in use way back in the 60´s and 70´s. Now, I do believe that our ability to encrypt a phone system has gone far beyond that time of history. Just consider, the telephones used on Air Force 1 are not capable of interception. The President can converse to whom ever any place on the planet and not be intercept. And trust me, so can high up intelligence officers.

The game is afoot at the Kushner Observer. The WSJ asks this morning if the Foreign Intelligence Service Court ok´d (or not) the monitoring of Mike Flynn and if so, what was the justification. Flynn is an American citizen who was not protected by a signit minimization procedure. It´s weaponized intelligence.

If these calls were monitored by our IC, then we have all the information we need. This call that is getting all this attention was leaked by Brennan and the hold overs from the Obama administration. It is sad this had to happen, but once there was blood in the water, you knew the sharks were not going to stop coming at him and therefore Trump.

We will know soon enough how deep the leaks go. But the sharks will be waiting for more blood thats one thing we can count on.

While I don´t believe in a wholesale revolt, keep in mind that most "spies" are not of the James Bond or Jason Bourne variety. Many are analysts recruited out of Ivy League universities where they majored in political science, or something with the word "studies" attached to it, as well as a thorough liberal indoctrination. So there may be a grain of truth to the story.

This is much larger in scope and with more tentacles then we have ever thought imagined. Our government is at risk with these far left hate radicals. They, along with Obama will try to overthrow the trump government and then implant Obama back into the White House.
If you listened to Rush today. There´s something the Left is trying to hide about the Iran Agreement. Now if I were a real journalist, that would be my quest, to go after a story that would surpass the Blue dress or Watergate.
This problem with the New Leftoid party is not going to go away. Fox News is keeping us preoccupied with platitudes and excuses, but they´re just trying to play it safe. The old Dems are done. They´ve been replaced by bad hombres. It´s almost as though they´re the

I do know that the acronym terminology now is SIGINT for signals Intel, HUMINT human (on the ground) Intel, GEOINT is now used for satellite intel.

When will the "leakers" get prosecuted? It has been very dismaying to me that obvious law breakers never go to jail. Never get investigated. Could there be some fear in the camp that POTUS and his justice department will go after any and all of the treasonous, seditionists in our government? Not holding my breath. I wish, wish that Trump will actually do something. Punish punish. Now one must assume that 0bama left a bunch of "land mines" when he left office. Every now and then one will go off, like Gen. Flynn conversations being leaked. THe 0bama nightmare is not over. I guess it will go on for at least 8 years.

Hillary Clinton suggested her campaign rival President Trump will get impeached, in sharp remarks in a commencement address Friday where she brought up ´obstruction of justice´ and warned of the steps to authoritarianism. Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee´s impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about. ´We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,´ the

Obama´s trip comes at the same time President Trump is making his inaugural excursion to Europe as president, visiting the European Union today.

Guilt by association. That’s what Andrea Mitchell believes.

On Thursday, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) questioned President Donald Trump’s failure to visit countries in alphabetical order. Asked at a press conference to comment on Trump’s trip abroad, Pelosi expressed concern that Trump didn’t start with Canada (with the letter “C”) like previous presidents: “I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia?” Pelosi said. “It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.” “Now, notice the previous five presidents….four of them went to Canada first. And, one of them went to Mexico; George W. Bush went

Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with misdemeanor assault the day before. Gianforte will now take over former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke’s House seat. Zinke vacated the seat when he accepted the post of Secretary of the Interior in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet. The election results — with Gianforte winning over 50% of the vote and leading by a seven-point margin — were a major blow to Democrats’ anti-Trump efforts, and to the media’s expectations, after Gianforte had allegedly “body-slammed” a reporter before his final

THE BIG IDEA: Greg Gianforte admitted to attacking a reporter and apologized during his victory speech last night, as he kept Montana’s sole House seat in Republican hands. Now he and his party’s leaders are trying to move on. On the eve of the special election, the wealthy technology entrepreneur flipped out when the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs asked him about the CBO’s score of the health care bill. He now faces misdemeanor assault charges for reportedly throwing Jacobs to the ground and breaking his glasses. “I made a mistake,” the congressman-elect said at his party in Bozeman. “Not in our minds!” yelled

It is the final day of Donald and Melania Trump´s first official tour as President and First Lady, and it looks like 47-year-old Melania is eager to go out with a sartorial bang. After having made a chic arrival in Sicily, where her husband is attending a G7 summit, Melania stepped out Friday morning in the coastal down of Catania, making a very stylish statement in a $51,500 coat by Dolce & Gabanna, which was covered with colorful 3-D flower embellishments - and came complete with a matching $1,630 purse by the Italian luxury label. However, the First Lady traded the statement

Bozeman, Montana - Republican Greg Gianforte has won the special election for Montana´s open US House seat, CNN projects, defeating Democrat Rob Quist and capping off a whirlwind final 36 hours of the campaign that saw Gianforte being charged for allegedly assaulting a reporter.

Gianforte was considered the favorite heading into Thursday´s election to fill the seat once held by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, but that was before he allegedly "body-slammed" a

Former President Barack Obama struggled over his failure to stop the brutal war in Syria as president, telling an audience that at least he tried. “As president I didn’t always have the tools I wanted to affect those changes, but at least we tried,” he said, referring to the conflict in Syria. Obama made his remarks during a panel conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, admitting that the two leaders were unsuccessful in stopping the conflict, “despite our best efforts.” He assured the audience that the atrocities in Syria “have haunted me since we first started seeing the

Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone used a recent television appearance to accuse those on food stamps of using them to buy drugs. “Hell, people use food stamps to buy marijuana — that’s illegal — or cocaine, or whatever the hell else people use to get high,” he said. “How do we make sure that we don’t take a system that is well-intentioned that becomes badly abused?” His comments came during an interview with Fox News´ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” where he discussed the Trump administrations $4.1 trillion dollar budget, which includes a proposal to cut Medicaid by $800 billion over the
