House Intelligence Committee votes to release ‘explosive’ FISA memo

Update: Full FISA Memo released!!!

The New York Post reports that today, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voted to release the controversial FISA memo that has been described as so “shocking” and “explosive,” not only will officials in the U.S. intelligence “community” be fired, people will even go to jail.

News of the FISA memo spawned a social media campaign with the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo.

Reportedly, the FISA memo says the Obama Administration’s FBI and Justice Department, using the bogus claim of Russian collusion, misused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to gain the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court’s approval to conduct surveillance on then-candidate Donald Trump and his team.

The 99-page document, United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Memorandum Opinion and Order, that is said to be the background source of the FISA memo also details how the Obama Administration’s National Security Agency (NSA) conducted illegal surveillance and doxxing of American citizens.

The vote to release the memo comes after committee Republicans, led by chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pushed for its disclosure.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee who opposes the release of the memo because the American people can’t understand it, said he and other Democrats on the committee voted against releasing the memo.

President Trump has urged that the FISA memo be released.

Not coincidentally, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, rumored to be named in the FISA memo, stepped down today, reportedly “under pressure from Director Christopher Wray”.

McCabe’s wife accepted cash, rumored to total $700,000, from a Super PAC connected to Terry McAuliffe, a longtime ally of the Clintons. McCabe will remain on the payroll using accrued time off until mid- March, when he maxes out his pension benefits. (New York Post)

‘Explosive’ FISA memo: ‘Top secret’ source document details Obama NSA illegal spying/doxxing of U.S. citizens

Update: Full FISA Memo released!!!

On January 18, 2018, members of the House of Representatives were given a four-page memo, described by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)and journalist Sara Carter as so “shocking” and “explosive”, it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ), the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation, and even people going to jail.

See “Tell Congress to release the ‘explosive’ FISA memo that’ll put officials in jail!

House members have been blocked from discussing the memo in detail due to a waiver they signed, according to The Hill. A day later, on January 19, 65 lawmakers signed a letter calling on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif) to publicly release the memo.

On January 20, Rep. Dave Joyce (R-Ohio) tweeted that the process to release the memo has begun, although it may take 19 or more Congressional work days.

On January 21, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said the memo should not be released because the American people simply can’t understand it because we don’t have the classified information that provides the background for the 4-page FISA memo.

Well, the American people’s inability to understand the FISA memo is no longer a concern for Demonrat Schiff because yesterday morning, a National Security Agency (NSA) whistle blower — former NSA tech head William Binneysent InfoWars a link to a 99-page document that’s been “confirmed” by “congressional sources” to be be “a primary source of information” for the 4-page FISA memo.

The classified (“top secret”) document is a 99-page “United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Memorandum Opinion and Order,” dated April 26, 2017. It is a blueprint of how the Obama administration and the Deep State had spied on President Trump, as well as on U.S. citizens.

Note: FISA or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 is a federal law that establishes procedures for the U.S. government’s physical and electronic surveillance of foreign powers and domestic (U.S.) agents of foreign powers suspected of espionage or terrorism. The Act created the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

In 2016, the Obama Administration used the “Russian dossier” and its  baseless claim of a Russian-Trump collusion as the pretext for a FISA court-approved surveillance on then-candidate Donald Trump and members of the Trump campaign, including phone- and wire-taps. But as you will see in the 99-page FISC memorandum, the Obama Administration’s surveillance went way beyond Trump and his team to include innocent U.S. citizens, whose personal identities were doxxed and their personal information leaked.

Below is a summary of the main points in the 99-page FISC memorandum:

(1) The NSA, under the Obama Administration, spied on U.S. citizens through something called the “Section 702 upstream collection”:

As explained by Sean D. Carberry of FCW, Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) authorizes the NSA to monitor internet traffic without a warrant and sweep up any communications that simply mention a foreign target, regardless of the sender or receiver of the email, who may be innocent U.S. citizens. That means the NSA has been spying on and intercepting U.S. citizens’ emails.

Page 33 of the 99-page FISC memorandum states:

Information acquired by FISA electronic surveillance and physical search, which often involve targets who are United States persons and typically are directed at persons in the United States.

(2) The NSA, under the Obama Administration, went beyond FISA’s Section 702 to “unmasking” (doxxing) and leaking information about Americans, including associates of Donald Trump:

All this is in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment, which prohibits the government’s unreasonable searches and seizures and requires governmental searches and seizures to be conducted only upon issuance of a warrant, judicially sanctioned by probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.

Below are some relevant quotes from the 99-page FISC memorandum:

Page 15 – “…NSA analysts had used US-person identifiers to query the results on Internet ‘upstream’ collection, even though NSA’s Section 702 minimization procedures prohibited such queries.”

Page 19 – “Since 2011, NSA’s minimization procedures have prohibited use of US-person identifiers to query the results of upstream Internet collection under Section 702. The Oct. 26, 2016 Notice informed the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance] Court that NSA analysts had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had previously been disclosed to the Court.

Page 21 –The government still had not ascertained the full range of systems that might have been used to conduct improper US-person queries.

Here’s former NSA official William Binney on the FISC memorandum:

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) must certify each year that the NSA is in compliance with Section 702 provisions.

In March 2017, some members of Congress threatened that they would have a hard time renewing Section 702 before its expiration at the end of 2017 unless the Trump Administration prosecutes those responsible for the leaks.

In a press release on April 28, 2017, the NSA described the changes it will make so that its Section 702 powers could be renewed:

  • The NSA said it would take steps “as soon as practicable” to delete data already collected in the illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens.
  • The NSA would halt “about” collection of U.S. citizens’ personal information. However, due to limitations of its current technology, the NSA “is unable to completely eliminate ‘about’ communications from its upstream 702 collection without also excluding some of the relevant communications directly ‘to or from’ its foreign intelligence targets.”
  • The NSA will still conduct “upstream” and “downstream” surveillance to collect emails sent to or from a foreign target located outside the U.S., for which the agency, under FISA’s Section 702, does not require a warrant.

In 2017, after an extensive review, the FISC approved changes made by the NSA “to fix the problems” before the government submitted a new application for the agency’s continued Section 702 certification.

Reactions from members of Congress (FCW):

  • Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has long accused the government of using Section 702 as an end run around warrant requirements to collect the communications of Americans, and he has been calling on the NSA to release data on the number of Americans who have had their communications “incidentally collected.” Wyden said after the NSA’s April press release: “This transparency should be commended. To permanently protect Americans’ rights, I intend to introduce legislation banning this kind of collection in the future.”
  • Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Ca.), a ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, called Section 702 a vital collection tool and commended the NSA for self-reporting the issues and discontinuing “about” collection. Schiff said: “I will continue to expect strict compliance with the FISA Court orders and will push for Section 702’s reauthorization along with any additional reforms needed to further strengthen and institutionalize protections for privacy and transparency.”
  • Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), a ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said: “This development represents the due diligence and extensive review applied across the United States Government pertaining to the Section 702 collection activities. I believe we can now look forward to Congress and, in particular, the Senate Intelligence Committee…quickly turning to the consideration and debate of this critical authority prior to its expiration set for December 31, 2017.”

Lt. Gen. Keith Alexander and Admiral Michael Rogers headed the National Security Agency under the Obama Administration. Rogers is still the NSA Director. Alexander, Rogers, NSA agents, and Barack Obama should be indicted and arrested for violating the Fourth Amendment rights of U.S. citizens.

Here’s what you can do:

(1) Tell the Department of Justice to arrest the above criminals:

(2) Tweet President Trump: https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump

(3) Tell your Congress critter(s): http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

This is the message I wrote on the DOJ’s onine Contact Form (feel free to copy and paste as yours):

To Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

The 99-page April 2017 “U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Memorandum Opinion and Order” shows that the NSA’s spying and doxxing egregiously violated the Fourth Amendment rights of U.S. citizens. Why haven’t you arrest NSA Directors Michael Rogers and Keith Alexander, NSA agents who conducted the spying and doxxing, and former President Barack Obama? Are they above the law?

‘Independent investigative journalist’ Jim Stone is a fraud: Not former NSA; no insider knowledge

Jim Stone calls himself an “independent investigative journalist” and has an eponymous blog: JimStone.is.

Stone claims special skills and insider knowledge as a former, but disaffected, U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) operative with “above top-secret clearance,” although he never specified what position he had held there. The NSA insider knowledge would account for why Stone rarely cites his sources (more on that later).

But being a disaffected NSA agent who is now dedicated to revealing the truth is also the reason why he is targeted by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In fear of his life, he fled the United States for Mexico, where he continues to be a truth warrior despite his website being constantly harassed and attacked by the shadowy spooks because the information he imparts to his readers is so exclusive and important (more on that later).

Note: I’ve always been puzzled by why Stone’s website is singled out for unceasing attacks and sometimes taken down (until Stone restores it). This blog, Fellowship of the Minds, publishes no less controversial information than Jim Stone’s, but we are not constantly attacked, nor has FOTM ever been taken down or experienced DOS (denial of service).

For all that, Stone solicits donations from his readers, who obligingly shower him with the monthly minimum he claims he needs to support himself and his wife in an undisclosed location in Mexico.

This post is about who Jim Stone is: He is neither a former NSA agent nor does he have special insider knowledge.

Not former NSA

On November 14, 2017, Merit Freeman, a contributor to Dr. Makow’s blog HenryMakow.com, doxxed Jim Stone. Makow had supported and believed in “Jim Stone”. Freeman writes:

“Stone guards his privacy with a virtual chastity belt of anonymity. While he slips in the rare quip about his personal life now and again, his readers know relatively little about the man whom they idolize, the man to whom they donate their hard-earned money in order to preserve that his brand [sic] of no-nonsense truth….

Heikkila has constantly been able to dun his readers for hundreds of dollars every month [sometimes thousands]. He has used the money to purchase land, multiple vehicles and to build a house in Mexico. He is unable to return to the U.S., as he is wanted by the courts on past-due child support, contempt of court and domestic violence charges.”

According to Freeman:

(1) Jim Stone is the alias of a man named James Milford Heikilla. Below is his passport.

(2) James Heikkila’s biography:

  • He was born on March 13th, 1966 in Hartford, Wisconsin.
  • Abandoned by his parents as a toddler, he spent his childhood in foster care, where he was tortured and abused by foster parents and siblings.
  • He attended Prescott High School in Prescott, Wisconsin, and graduated in 1983.
  • Heikkila has been married five times:
    • He met his first wife in Wisconsin; she filed for divorce and they legally separated in 1993.
    • Heikkila divorced his second wife, citing her drug issues and infidelity.
    • He met his third wife in Utah; adopted her son from a previous relationship and they eventually had a daughter together. James filed for divorce in August of 2001.
    • In 2009, his fourth wife helped him pen his first truther report, “Tainted Nightmare,” which outlined the dangers of the Swine Flu vaccines and the plans to unleash the tainted vaccines onto selected members of the populace. Upon hearing that she was leaving him, Heikkila emptied a can of pepper spray in her face. He was charged by the State of Maryland with second-degree assault and, later, domestic violence. He told his readers that the assault charge was due to a can of pepper spray accidentally discharging in his luggage and inadvertently striking a law enforcement officer, resulting in trumped-up charges. This was a lie.
    • He now resides in León, Guanajuato, Mexico with his fifth wife.

(3) James Heikkila’s job history:

  • He was a mill worker at Geneva Steel in Vineyard, Utah until it shut down in 2001.
  • He later started his own company, selling, renting and stocking vending machines.
  • He was a locally renown pianist in Massachusetts, before leaving the world of music in 2003.
  • Blogger:
  • In early 2001, Heikkila introduced himself to the online world with StoneBound.com, dedicated to his music.
  • In early 2008, he launched a website dedicated to his photography. ‘Jim Stone: Freelance Photographer’ featured his original images. In early 2013, he started another site, “Budget Camera Review’. 
  • Heikkila added a forum on conspiracy theories and politics to his photographer website. That forum eventually evolved into his current site, JimStone.is. Freeman writes: “He would later integrate another truther forum into his site, the ‘Reactor Breach Forum.’ It was heavily controlled and moderated. Anyone spouting anti-Jim Stone rhetoric was quickly gaslighted and banned. The forum eventually fizzled out after it became evident that the goal was not to share ideas, but rather to blow boost Heikkila’s ego and to promote the personal website of the head forum moderator, a power-hungry Canadian Scientologist.”

(4) “Jim Stone” never worked for the NSA. He’s a fugitive, not because he’s hunted by spooks, but because he’s a child-support deadbeat. Freeman writes:

“In September of 2011, Heikkila claimed to have been arrested and illegally held for 6 days. There is no legal record of this ever occurring. He claims that law enforcement officers destroyed all of the inventory and equipment for his vending machine company. He wanted to leave the country, but claims that the U.S. government denied him a passport because he was an NSA whistle-blower. He was actually legally forbidden from getting a U.S. passport because his court-ordered child support payments were in arrears.

Heikkila’s backstory would not be complete with addressing the 8000-pound elephant in the room: his claim to have been an ‘MOS33Q10: Electronic Warfare Intercept Strategic Signal Processing / Storage Systems Specialist’ with an above-top-secret clearance at the NSA [United States National Security Agency]. Heikkila has offered up ZERO proof over the years to substantiate this claim. Furthermore, such a rank and designation does not even exist within the NSA. Whether he worked for the NSA or the flea circus, Heikkila has, for the most part, proven to be pretty reliable with the information that he puts out. But why the dishonesty?”

(5) James Heikkila’s religious beliefs have roamed from Christianity to Islam to Judaism:

Freeman writes;

“Let’s move on to Heikkila’s beliefs. He constantly espouses his hatred for the Zionists [namely the Ashkenazi Jews], but does he subscribe to any particular religion himself? He says that he was raised as a Christian. He claims to have converted to Islam during his fourth marriage, taking on the name ‘Annas Heikkila’ during that time. From 2005 to 2008, he attended Jewish services in Montreal and Vancouver, Canada. He was in the process of converting to Judaism until the Jews SPILLED THE BEANS ON THE JEWISH CONSPIRACY and realized they would have to kill him. They poisoned him but he was [magically] able to cure himself with pickling salt, vinegar and ammonia window cleaner.

Since absconding to Mexico with his fifth wife, Heikkila claims to be on the run from Israeli-sponsored assassins. He went so far as to claim that 30 ‘storm troopers,’ replete with helmets, shields and riot gear, were once camped out at his domicile, waiting to murder him. Luckily, he spotted them from afar with his god-given night vision abilities and subverted the attack.”

“Jim Stone” has no insider information but is a plagiarist

Not being a former NSA spook with “above top-secret clearance,” blogger Jim Stone has no special insider knowledge.

How do I know that? Because I follow the same Alt.Media chat forums and message boards (Reddit, 4chan, 8chan) that are Stone’s sources, although he never credits them as his sources of information.

Not only does “Jim Stone” not have special insider knowledge, he’s a plagiarist:

(1) The Fukushima report: Freeman writes —

“Heikkila’s Fukushima report . . . is the cornerstone of his website, [but] it, like the rest of his history, is not without controversy. Heikkila has been accused by Ken Adachi of Educate-Yourself.org of plagiarizing parts of his report on Fukushima, which was published a full ten weeks before his. It seems that Heikkila elaborated on their report, added high-resolution photographs of the Fukushima disaster from Cryptome.org and repackaged it as his own. To his credit, Heikkila’s report is leaps and bounds above that of Educate-Yourself.org.”

(2) “Jim Stone” recently plagiarized FOTM without citing this blog as his source:

From his blog:

Here’s my proof:

On December 23, 2017, I published the post “Epidemic of medical boots: Now it’s Rep. Jackie Speier,” with a pic that I found on Reddit, but I painted in the yellow arrow pointing to Speier’s medical boot.

As you can see for yourself, that’s exactly the pic that Jim Stone uses as his own, without citing FOTM as his source. Shame on him.

(3) Not having special insider knowledge, it’s no surprise that some of Jim Stone’s information is serious flawed. Here’s a recent example:

On December 12, 2017, Jim Stone trumpeted that Congress had an emergency meeting to lock up Hillary Clinton and gave a link to a video on YouTube titled, “JUST IN: Congress had an emergency meeting to lock up Hillary Clinton. See the outcome”.

As you can see, the video has been taken down from YouTube.

That’s because Congressman Steve King’s (R-Iowa) impassioned speech actually took place on July 26, 2017, as you can see in this video below:

The video was uploaded to YouTube by Steve King’s staff on July 27, 2017, with this description:

“Congress [sic] King speaks on 7/26/17 in support of legislation that requires the Attorney General to turn over documents about former F.B.I. director James Comey’s involvement in several controversial cases. The legislation passed 16-13. King voted in favor of it.”

To conclude, the blogger “Jim Stone” is not who he claims to be. He is a 5-times married man named James Heikkila; a fugitive from the Unites States for child-support and domestic violence; a Muslim convert (which would explain his hyper-defensive dismissal of reports of female genital mutilation in America, and his uncritical support of Iran); with but a high school education, which makes his claim to have worked in the National Security Agency “with above top-secret clearance” even more laughably ridiculous.

“Jim Stone” is also a con-man, who has conned readers across the world to support him with their hard-earned money.

NSA tweet: Pizzagate is real

A year ago, on December 4, 2016, some “white hat” at the National Security Agency (NSA) tweeted that Pizzagate is real. Below is the tweet, which was retweeted the next day by @axslinger99 (h/t Voat):

I can confirm the following:

Certainly, if anyone knows about Pizzagate, it would be the NSA — the federal government agency that spies on every phonecall, email, bank transfer, travel record of every American. See:

Democrat operative David Brock’s chat shows NSA surveillance used to identify and disable online Trump supporters

David Brock is a Clinton loyalist, apparatchik for the Democrat Party as founder of Media Matters, and the former boyfriend of Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis who, though a “mere” pizza restaurateur, was named by GQ magazine as 49th among the 50 most powerful people in Washington, D.C.

8 months ago in September 2016, someone hacked into Correct the Record — a Hillary super PAC founded by Brock — and obtained the transcript of a conversation between Brock and three other Democrat operatives the morning after the first presidential debate on Sept. 26 between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The transcript was posted on Reddit and other sites.

Although the Sept. 26 debate was rigged to favor Hillary by outfitting her podium with a teleprompter (see “Hillary used a teleprompter during first debate with Trump”), the post-debate polls all had Trump as the winner, which prompted the morning-after chat between Brock and the three Democrat operatives:

  • ekim
  • efink: Elliot Fink, HR office manager/executive assistant of Correct the Record
  • cshaw: Connor Shaw (?), Special Projects, Correct the Record.

The chat is interesting and significant for at least two reasons:

(1) Referring to Hillary Clinton as “the sick thing,” Brock et al. were surprised by how good Hillary or her imposter looked in the debate (“whoever that was, she looked pretty good. how tf did they do that?” “i can’t talk. very hush hush.”) because just “a couple of weeks” before the debate, Hillary had performed poorly on two cognitive impairment tests:

  • A score of 3 on AMTS — Abbreviated Mental Test Score, a 10-question test to access elderly patients for the possibility of dementia. A score of 7-8 or less suggests cognitive impairment at the time of testing, although further and more formal tests are necessary to confirm a diagnosis of dementia, delirium or other causes of cognitive impairment.
  • A score of 22 on MMSE — Mini-Mental State Examination, a 30-point questionnaire that is used extensively in clinical and research settings to measure cognitive impairment and to screen for dementia. Any score below 24 can indicate severe (≤9 points), moderate (10–18 points) or mild (19–23 points) cognitive impairment.

(2) Panicking that Hillary had lost the debate (“we’re losing 100%”; “Trump made her look like a girl.”), and recognizing that Trump’s supporters are “enthusiastic” and “organized,” Brock et al. vowed they “have to stop the bleeding” and must “hit back hard” with new methods because “the usual means” of online trolling (“disruption scripts” and “down-voting”) “isn’t working” and because Trump supporters are sub-human “deplorables”.

Brock et al. said “we need to start hurting people” by deploying NSA spy software, specifically FOXACID, on Reddit, Twitter, 4chan and 8chan posters, identifying their leaders, getting their IP addresses, doxing (obtain personal information of an Internet poster, including real name, known aliases, address, phone number, SSN, credit card number, etc.), tracking their online activities , and infecting their computers with “magic lanterns” — viruses that log the keystrokes of the infected computer. For all of which Brock said “we have full clearance. Word of God.”

FOXACID is a National Security Agency (NSA) software designed to hack into  target computers with spam and QUANTUM — a program where servers deployed at key places on the Internet backbones impersonate legitimate Web sites and trick the target’s browser into visiting a FOXACID server. If the target’s browser is exploitable, further permanent “implants” (rootkits etc.) are deployed in the target computer, e.g. OLYMPUSFIRE for Windows, which give complete remote access to the infected machine.

The chat ended with Brock ordering the three operatives to compile a list of information on more than a thousand online posters. After Brock logged off the chat, one of the operatives asked what Brock would do with the information they’ll give him on the Trump supporters, the ominous answer was:

google Seth Rich and shut up about it.

Seth Rich, a DNC staffer believed to have provided thousands of damaging DNC emails to WikiLeaks, was murdered on July 10, 2½ months before the Trump-Hillary debate.

Below is the transcript of the Brock et al. chat:

[6:13] fuck–okay. so the Trump team is an emergent order. thirty million little chan and reddit assholes that bump around and then congeal to vote in a poll or push a meme or make a hashtag trend or whatever. This is new. It isn’t like fighting a centrally organized campaign.

[6:13] It’s more like fighting a disease.

[6:14] So what we need to do is break the pattern. The usual means isn’t working. Trump’s too charismatic. Morale is too high. This is an army of chaos folks.

Update (June 7, 2017):

In a series of comments (see below), blogger Max Insider of a hoax fake-news site called RealTrueNews — which is neither real nor true nor news — claims that he concocted the David Brock chat transcript and blames his deception on Trump supporters. See his December 27, 2016 fake post: “Inside Correct the Record: Post-Debate PLOT!“.

Notwithstanding Max Insider’s claim (whose alias is yet another lie as he is no “insider” of anything but hoaxes) that the Brock transcript is a hoax, it should be pointed out that the NSA in fact does engage in the nefarious activities described in the transcript — those of “doxing” online posters and deploying FoxAcid to attack and infect their computers. The following is from a UK Guardian article on Oct. 4, 2013:

“Secret servers and a privileged position on the internet’s backbone used to identify users and attack target computers

The online anonymity network Tor is a high-priority target for the National Security Agency. The work of attacking Tor is done by the NSA’s application vulnerabilities branch, which is part of the systems intelligence directorate, or SID. The majority of NSA employees work in SID, which is tasked with collecting data from communications systems around the world.

According to a top-secret NSA presentation provided by the whistleblower Edward Snowden, one successful technique the NSA has developed involves exploiting the Tor browser bundle, a collection of programs designed to make it easy for people to install and use the software. The trick identified Tor users on the internet and then executes an attack against their Firefox web browser.

The NSA refers to these capabilities as CNE, or computer network exploitation.

The first step of this process is finding Tor users. To accomplish this, the NSA relies on its vast capability to monitor large parts of the internet. This is done via the agency’s partnership with US telecoms firms under programs codenamed Stormbrew, Fairview, Oakstar and Blarney.

The NSA creates “fingerprints” that detect http requests from the Tor network to particular servers. These fingerprints are loaded into NSA database systems like XKeyscore, a bespoke collection and analysis tool which NSA boasts allows its analysts to see “almost everything” a target does on the internet….

After identifying an individual Tor user on the internet, the NSA uses its network of secret internet servers to redirect those users to another set of secret internet servers, with the codename FoxAcid, to infect the user’s computer. FoxAcid is an NSA system designed to act as a matchmaker between potential targets and attacks developed by the NSA, giving the agency opportunity to launch prepared attacks against their systems.

Once the computer is successfully attacked, it secretly calls back to a FoxAcid server, which then performs additional attacks on the target computer to ensure that it remains compromised long-term, and continues to provide eavesdropping information back to the NSA.

Expat blogger Jim Stone, who lives in Mexico, goads Trump supporters to violence

Since last year’s presidential campaign, I’ve been following a blogger named Jim Stone (not his real name), who claims to be a former NSA spook and calls himself a “truthseeker” “freelance journalist”.

Very little is known about “Jim Stone”. I found only these on the web:

I’ve found Jim Stone to be useful because he seems to have his ear to the ground. He is among the first to pick up important stories either before or ignored by Drudge Report. I also like him because he’s a Trump supporter.

That being said, Stone is an acquired taste because:

  • His writing is of the quick-dash unpolished variety, often unsourced.
  • His website Jim Stone does not have a stable URL as other websites do, e.g., Fellowship of the Minds‘ URL is always http://fellowshipoftheminds.com. In the case of Jim Stone, the only stable URL is the prefix http://82.221.129.208. When you enter http://82.221.129.208 into your browser, you’ll get the Jim Stone URL of that day, which is http://82.221.129.208 followed by (something something).html. As an example, Jim Stone‘s URL yesterday is 82.221.129.208/baaasepagee9.html. But if you go to that URL today, you’ll get the same page that you read yesterday. The only way to access fresh content is to enter the prefix URL (http://82.221.129.208) and hit “enter”.
  • Stone gives himself special credibility by claiming that, of all the many Alternative Media websites, his site alone is under constant cyber attack by TPTB, which accounts for his site’s weird format, as well as justifies Stone asking his readers for financial donations to sustain him each month.

Beginning a couple of days ago, however, something shifted. Stone is calling on Trumpers to turn to violence as the only solution. Here’s what he wrote yesterday:

A violent outcome may be unavoidable

It is getting hard to do my job of stopping that.

What do I think my job is? To inform people well enough to cause the elite to back off, and not force a violent revolution. But as the days go by, and we get to see just how corrupt the system is, and how mysteriously stupid Trump seems to be on certain topics, and how his hands are completely tied with what he does know about, it is beginning to look like an insurmountable task to prevent the worst possible outcome.

Remember Joe Stack? The guy who supposedly wrote a big manifesto and flew his plane into an IRS building? The IRS version of that event is totally debunked on this web site, but there was a key line in the manifesto Joe Stack probably wrote (this manifesto said nothing about suicide and was obviously about taking direct action against corruption). What was that line? “Violence is not only the answer, it is the only answer”. Joe stack [sic] knew years ago what is becoming more than evident now. Let’s hope to God Trump is the man to save it all, because if he ends up failing we will be completely out of alternative options.

Every day now I am ending up reading headlines which if discussed can only be solved with violence – from the CIA leaks, to car crash murders, to mysterious suicides, tainted vaccines marching ahead like there is no resistance at all – so many different things, because every time something new develops it makes it more and more obvious that we really are running out of options. I am getting tired of reporting this stuff with no hope in sight unless it is a sight mounted on a gun barrel.

If they are going to stop Trump at every turn, including the latest ruling by a federal judge to block Trump’s new immigration ban, it only proves they have absolutely no interest in the American people and are perfectly willing to break all laws to violate that will, simply because they have infiltrated and placed corruption at all levels which make it possible to. If they have eliminated the peaceful options, what else is left?

There are several problems to Stone’s call to violence:

  1. Who (other than Jim Stone) says all the peaceful options are eliminated and only violence is left? Put another way, what evidence is there that violence is the only solution?
  2. Even assuming that violence is the only solution, Stone is urging us to just do it, without any organization or planning — which is insane.
  3. A resort to violence is suicidal and doomed to failure, unless we have the police and the military on our side.

But there is another, even bigger problem than the above three.

How dare Jim Stone urge us to violence when he doesn’t even live in the U.S.? Stone and his wife live in Mexico. That means he won’t be undertaking the violence to which he calls us, nor will he suffer the consequences.

Jim Stone’s irresponsible call to violence is the crossing of that proverbial Line of Rubicon. Beware of this man.

Spooks declare war on President Trump: ‘He will die in jail’

chuck-schumer

John R. Schindler (@20committee) is a former National Security Agency (NSA) analyst and counterintelligence officer who clearly still maintains the worldview of the NSA — one that, despite a paucity of evidence, insists on Russia as an enemy of the United States who intervened in the 2016 election in favor of Trump. And although he no longer works at the NSA, Schindler nevertheless adopts the agency’s antipathy toward a sitting and duly elected POTUS, calling President Trump “a demented asshole” in a recent tweet.

john-schindler

In an ominous op/ed titled “The Spy Revolt Against Trump Begins” for the Observer, published on Feb. 12, 2017, a day before Gen. Mike Flynn’s forced resignation from being President Trump’s national security adviser, Schindler writes:

“[T]he 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—in fact, inside the Beltway itself. Our Intelligence Community is so worried by the unprecedented problems of the Trump administration—not only do senior officials possess troubling ties to the Kremlin, there are nagging questions about basic competence regarding Team Trump—that it is beginning to withhold intelligence from a White House which our spies do not trust….

The president has repeatedly gone out of his way to antagonize our spies, mocking them and demeaning their work.

Next, Schindler trashes Mike Flynn, describing Flynn as “widely disliked in Washington for his brash personality,” “managerial incompetence,” “poor judgment,” and “preference for conspiracy-theorizing over intelligence facts” (probably a reference to Pizzagate). Then Schindler just about outright admits that it was the NSA that wiretapped Flynn’s phone calls with Sergei Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., which led to Flynn’s resignation:

“In pretty much every capital worldwide, embassies that provide sanctuary to hostile intelligence services are subject to counterintelligence surveillance, including monitoring phone calls. Our spy services conduct signals intelligence—SIGINT for short—against the Russian embassy in Washington, just as the Russians do against our embassy in Moscow. Ambassadors’ calls are always monitored: that’s how the SpyWar works, everywhere.

Ambassador Kislyak surely knew his conversations with Flynn were being intercepted, and it’s incomprehensible that a career military intelligence officer who once headed a major intelligence agency didn’t realize the same.”

Then Schindler redoubles on that secret 35-page “golden shower” dossier on Trump (so secret CNN reported on it and Buzzfeed published in its entirety) which was compiled by ex-British spook Christopher Steele from rumors, which Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had admitted is unverified. Schindler writes:

“A new report by CNN indicates that important parts of the infamous spy dossier that professed to shed light on President Trump’s shady Moscow ties have been corroborated by communications intercepts. In other words, SIGINT strikes again, providing key evidence that backs up some of the claims made in that 35-page report compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence official with extensive Russia experience.”

Schindler also redoubles on the wholly unsubstantiated claim that the Kremlin had intervened in the 2016 election in favor of Trump:

“Now SIGINT confirms that some of the non-salacious parts of what Steele reported, in particular how senior Russian officials conspired to assist Trump in last year’s election, are substantially based in fact. This is bad news for the White House, which has already lashed out in angry panic, with Press Secretary Sean Spicer stating, ‘We continue to be disgusted by CNN’s fake news reporting.’”

Schindler then ominously asserts that the intelligence agencies that supposedly work for their boss, President Trump, effectively have declared war against him:

Our spies have had enough of these shady Russian connections—and they are starting to push back.

According to Schindler, thus far, the spooks’ war against President Trump consists of:

  1. The CIA denying a security clearance to one of Flynn’s men, Rob Townley, a former Marine intelligence officer selected to head up the National Security Council’s Africa desk. Townley was denied a clearance to see Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI), which is required to have access to SIGINT. Schindler maintains that new CIA Director Mike Pompeo endorses the Townley SCI denial.
  2. Even worse, Schindler claims that “some of our spy agencies have begun withholding intelligence from the Oval Office,” ostensibly because of Trump’s “lackadaisical attitude” toward the President’s Daily Brief (PDB), the most sensitive of all intelligence documents. Schindler claims that Trump has received the PDBs “haphazardly” and “has frequently blown off the PDB altogether, tasking Flynn with condensing it into a one-page summary with no more than nine bullet-points.” Schindler writes:

“A senior National Security Agency official explained that NSA was systematically holding back some of the ‘good stuff’ from the White House, in an unprecedented move. For decades, NSA has prepared special reports for the president’s eyes only, containing enormously sensitive intelligence. In the last three weeks, however, NSA has ceased doing this, fearing Trump and his staff cannot keep their best SIGINT secrets.

Since NSA provides something like 80 percent of the actionable intelligence in our government, what’s being kept from the White House may be very significant indeed. However, such concerns are widely shared across the IC, and NSA doesn’t appear to be the only agency withholding intelligence from the administration out of security fears.”

That “Trump and his staff cannot keep their best SIGINT secrets” is a reference to the persistent leaks vexing the Trump administration — leaks that most likely are the work of the NSA and other intelligence agencies. The same intelligence agencies now use those leaks as their excuse to withhold sensitive intelligence from President Trump. That’s chutzpah!

Schindler then concludes with giving himself a pat on the back, and a threat:

“I previously warned the Trump administration not to go to war with the nation’s spies, and here’s why. This is a risky situation, particularly since President Trump is prone to creating crises foreign and domestic with his incautious tweets. In the event of a serious international crisis of the sort which eventually befalls almost every administration, the White House will need the best intelligence possible to prevent war, possibly even nuclear war. It may not get the information it needs in that hour of crisis, and for that it has nobody to blame but itself.”

On February 15, 3 days after his op/ed was published, John Schindler sent out a tweet, saying that the intelligence community (IC) is going “nuclear” on President Trump, and that a message from a “senior IC friend” says Trump “will die in jail”.

schindler-go-nuclear-tweet-2-15-2017

On February 16, the Wall St. Journal confirms what Schindler claims:

U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised, according to current and former officials familiar with the matter.”

It appears John Schindler is another Anthony-Weiner exhibitionist pervert.

In June 2014, a text message conversation with a photo of a penis and John Schindler’s name atop it was circulated on Twitter. An unnamed blogger sent a complaint to the administrators of the U.S. Navy War College (NWC) where Schindler was teaching as a professor of national security affairs. Gawker obtained the emails the blogger had sent to the NWC under a Freedom of Information Act request. The emails refer to Schindler’s habit of calling himself a “spy”; detail his correspondence with an unnamed woman (who apparently received his penis photo); and accuse Schindler of staging “cyber warfare” against his online enemies, using “thuggish tactics” to silence NSA critics, and violating various federal laws.

NWC’s president ordered an investigation and placed Schindler on administrative leave. On August 29, 2014, the college announced that Schindler voluntarily resigned. (Source: Stars and Stripes)

Paul Craig Roberts, former Reagan administration assistant treasury secretary, is so pessimistic about the war between Trump and the spooks that he declares the presidency of Donald Trump effectively dead. See “The Trump Presidency: RIP“.

Pray for President Trump!

Pray for America.
