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:

  • Phones: 202-353-1555 (comment);  202-514-2000 (main switchboard)
  • Online form: https://www.justice.gov/doj/webform/your-message-department-justice

(2) Tweet President Trump: https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump
(3) Tell your Congress critter(s): https://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?

  1. Such a drag, nothing happens, when?

  2. “Are they above the law?”
    Sadly, many in DC appear to be. See Hillary and Lois Lerner.
    I will contact the DOJ yet won’t hold my breath…

    • DCG . . . . perhaps one voice they can ignore. But, if enough of us patriotic American citizens cry out for justice . . . perhaps they will listen, and take judicial action against all those who have trampled our Constitution.
      I can already tell . . . . I for one, have a whole lot of writing to do this evening . . .

  3. Mr Eowyn,they spied us on everything,all this technology that we have in our homes,is tools to spy on us!theres incredible more to talk about sooo many,but my q is:can we hope in a better world,after the storm?The evil is sooo big,deep ,yuge…you know that evil is much powerful than a human being,n u also no y…the evil will always b there,in the world,coz Satan can b defeated only by God,on that day…the world has never changed ,neva will,but we changed…can the evil persons from this world really be change it? Trump is one man,he is human too,people come n people go ,but the evil will always b there,the world has forgotten its true hope , n that is only God and His Son,Jesus Christ! You ,Mr Eowyn ,or ur readers ,can agree or not w me,ty for letting me sharing sum of my many thoughts here

    • “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke

      • Amén

      • Dr Eowyn . . . . . thank you for blessing us with a remembrance of Edmund Burke’s quote, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
        That quote is timeless. Though the years may pass, that particular sentiment will never go out of fashion.

    • palcau ioan . . . . you have beautifully phrased the basic question . . . where can we seek for help in this tumultuous times? The only answer to that question is for each of us to petition the Heavens for help in doing whatsoever we need to do to counter this tide of evil doing which has enveloped our nation.
      Thank you for your beautiful addition to this discussion.
      God Bless America and Bless Our People to be Righteous! Let us never neglect our sacred duty to promote freedom in this land, and the love of Our Savior, Jesus Christ.

  4. let’s pray those names are included in the sealed indictments (would love to see commiefornia lawmakers’ names in there as well)…
    time to hold folks accountable for their evil/crooked actions.

    • MomOfIV . . . . I know that I should not feel this way . . . but, I do so want Obummer brought to justice for ALL THE THINGS he perpetrated against this nation! There are so many things, starting with the fact that he is not a US citizen . . . . . I cannot possibly list them all. I just hope that there is no way that he can wiggle out of being brought to justice!
      I certainly can see the wisdom of cleaning out the DOJ and the FBI before these crooks are brought to justice. There has been way to much collusion between top Demorats and agents of both the DOJ and the FBI. k The rule of order must be restored in this land.

  5. Is it true that Admiral Rogers went to see President Trump at Trump Tower about 10 days after the election, to inform him that he, his family, associates, and his transition team were under surveillance? If I understand correctly, they all moved out and relocated to a place in New Jersey. I was not really following all of this at the time, I am simply relying upon timelines I have read. If this is true about Admiral Rogers, is it also likely that he also informed President Trump how it was done, who was involved, and where to find all the necessary information once he was in office? If so, President Trump and his administration are way ahead of the game and have been working on all of this for over a year.

  6. good men had it enuff,n wen i say enuff i mean ENOUGH! praying for these good men,doing a great job,but the rest of us need to do our job too,if you look around you see many ppl bein brainwashed! God Bless America,God Bless President Donald J Trump! God Bless the patriots of this awesome country,in hell w the dems and neva comes bk

  7. Binny’s actions were very important. If the people in possession of the memo were allowed the 19 days delay before release, it is my opinion that they would have used that time to redact the document to cover their guilt. It really does seem that the Lord Himself has decided to deal with the “deep state.”

  8. Maybe 5-10% is redacted which I believe some of it names names. Has anyone watched any of the MSM news shows today to see if they are talking about the memo? We know they are trying to ignore it.

  9. Kevin J Lankford

    Any one of them could expose the truth if they chose to do so. No one of character would allow themselves to be bound by a waiver that protects criminal and treasonous activity. Doing so [D]oes make them just as guilty as actual active participants.

  10. Seems every thing nsa is doing is illegal according to our Constitution so LETS ARREST NSA, how childish of me they are above the Law like clinton and assorted traitors in our government oh again how I forget the law is for us the peons and not for the privileged now why did I go off the reservation it only makes my blood BOIL.☻

  12. Tracy Beanz warned in a video she released last night that there’s a LOT of false documents and disinformation out there on this,so we have to do our research,verify and cross verify to insure what we read is the “real deal”,
    She even tells how to spot fakes,but also cautions us to not take something as fact JUST because it passes the initial sniff test. I urge everyone to check her videos out-she’s been in this for along time and REALLY knows her stuff.

  13. A grave mistake is being made here, “Fellowship”! Admiral Rogers is the man who first realized all of the corruption. He tried everything he could to get to the bottom of it. He put a stop to the ‘contractors’ “About Queries”. When he discovered more horrific government malfeasance, he, for the first time in his distinguished military career, bypassed his chain of command–and did not tell James Clapper–by going to see President Donald J. Trump to warn him that his communications were being monitored. That is why POTUS’ team moved to New Jersey the next day.
    Eventually, Admiral Rogers will be recognized as the man who saved our Republic.
    Get this corrected Fellowship of the Minds. Or you will be very embarrassed when all of this dirty dust settles.

    • Really? I should be embarrassed? Don’t make me laugh.
      Michael Rogers became Director of the NSA in April 2014, and oversaw the agency’s ILLEGAL spying and doxxing of innocent American citizens, including me — and I have the emails to prove it. As Director, why didn’t he do something?
