Elder Patriot – “The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home.” – James Madison
Following 9/11 the need to conduct surveillance on terrorists resulted in the passage of the Patriot Act. Strict guidelines were put in place to guarantee the protection of Fourth Amendment rights of American citizens:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
This protection was ensured by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and was placed in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that would discern whether a warrant to spy on an American citizen should be granted upon discovery of his or her contact with a non U.S. citizen. Probable cause still applied.
It took only until the first Democrat president was elected, and his criminal actions were going to be exposed by the election of an outsider, for the rules of the FISC to be violated.
Under Obama’s orders the CIA, FBI, DOJ, the State Department, the DNC, and the Clinton campaign conspired together to gin up probable cause against Donald Trump.
Almost three years after the conspiracy to take down Donald Trump was launched we still haven’t seen the probably cause that the FISC relied on.
Our laws provide for that eventuality. However, the men who wrote our Constitution never foresaw the possibility of a deliberately corrupt press. Nor did they anticipate the concentration of news dissemination that exists today.
That concentration creates the potential for collusion between the government, the foreign and corporate actors they’re colluding with, and the media itself. And, that is exactly what transpired as Obama realized the criminal enterprise he had run for eight years would not be passed on to Hillary Clinton for her to continue and to protect.
It’s always been hard for me to get my head around the number of corrupt Obama appointees who were supposedly acting on their own. The fact that not a single whistleblower came forward just defies credulity.
Or, did they? And, did the mainstream media ignore and discredit them under orders from foreign masters and the Obama administration? What are they hiding and why hasn’t anyone in the mainstream media demanded to see it?
Somebody had to be coordinating the actions of this many people.
The New York Times, the Washington Post, and Buzzfeed have been in possession of the FISC application, since March 17th of 2017 when Senate Select Committee on Intelligence staffer James Wolfe leaked it to reporter Ali Watkins.
Yet not one reporter from any of those three outlets mentioned above reported just how flawed the warrant application was. That makes them complicit in the conspiracy to protect the Obama-Clinton crime syndicate. If not that, then what else are they hiding?
The MSM knew, at least the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Buzzfeed knew, that the underlying “oath or affirmation” to justify spying on Trump was baseless.
Other than Obama, Clinton and the criminals they were surrounded by, what else is the media protecting?
At least one thing they were protecting was the sale national security assets and secret information to foreign governments. Another was the targeted spending that left us ten trillion dollars deeper in debt to reward their protectors in corporate America and with foreign leaders.
But what else? After all, this could be the greatest story they never told. Why not report it? That is unless they know that they cannot hide their own complicity if the facts were to be known.
So, instead they seek to label us Fake News and to silence us. In reality they have been peddling fake news for at least 17 months, and now, as the walls are closing in on them, they rely on their social media allies to prevent us from exposing their role as co-conspirators.
This brings us to the censorship of Alex Jones. The two terms I hear repeated most in defense of shutting down his voice is “vile” and “conspiracy theorist.” Really? That deserves further scrutiny.
Jones is no more vile than, say, Lawrence O’Donnell, Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, Cenk Uygur, or Stephen Colbert, but Jones often exposes real government corruption and for that he must be silenced.
As for conspiracy theories, Alex Jones is but one man.
Even if Jones had an army of 10,000, it would be practically impossible to top the collusion that has existed, and that continues to exist, between the Obama WH, the FBI, CIA, DOJ, IRS, the State Department, the Five Eyes network, and the mainstream media.
It’s not bias. The MSM didn’t simply get it wrong. Sorry, but the MSM is guilty of outright collusion with the most corrupt administration in U.S. history.
Hopefully, there will be consequences for their violation of the public trust.
