Obama Officials & Loyalists Torpedoed General Flynn to Protect Iran Deal

Michael Flynn was appointed by Obama as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012, he then was forced into early retirement just 2 years later for being critical of the administration’s handling of the Iran deal and terrorism threats generally. On February first, Flynn as President Trump’s top national security advisor officially put Iranian regime on Notice after its missile test. Obama officials and loyalists have all along known Flynn as a serious threat and a tenacious hostile to their Iran deal, they worried he might expose the undisclosed “side deals” attendant to the deal. As a result they started orchestrating the embarrassing leaks on his ties with Russia.

When Flynn was attacked in the mainstream media for his ties to Russia, his staff was not even allowed to review the transcripts of Flynn’s conversation to the Russian ambassador. The transcripts as one White House official acknowledged asserts when Russian ambassador raised the sanctions to Flynn, he responded that the Trump team would be taking office in a few weeks and would review Russia policy and sanctions. That is neither illegal nor improper.

Flynn was not allowed by the White House to defend himself. He was instructed not to speak to the press when he was in the fight for his political life to defend himself. Flynn has been a firsthand witness to government screw-ups, smokescreens, and censored information that our leaders don’t want us to know. In short General Flynn was just thrown under the bus one more time. Right after the publication of the Washington Free Beacon report, the Mullahs’ regime in Iran warns Trump against disclosing secret Iran deal documents. What worries me in all this is whether Trump administration is going to pave the same stepping stone that has been laid out by Washington establishment, from both parties, for almost four decades in dealing with Iran! During presidential election Trump has repeatedly claimed that he will be an anti-establishment President, but we all know that actions speak louder than words. [DID]

**********************************

The abrupt resignation Monday evening of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.

The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes—the architect of a separate White House effort to create what he described as a pro-Iran echo chamber—included a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility, multiple sources revealed.

The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration’s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration. Read more…

Press Freedom in Iran under Mullahs’ Regime Ranks 173rd out of 180 Countries

For the list of global rankings refer to the bottom of this article.

The 2014 World Press Freedom Index spotlights the negative impact of conflicts on freedom of information and its protagonists. The ranking of some countries has also been affected by a tendency to interpret national security needs in an overly broad and abusive manner to the detriment of the right to inform and be informed. This trend constitutes a growing threat worldwide and is even endangering freedom of information in countries regarded as democracies. Finland tops the index for the fourth year running, closely followed by Netherlands and Norway, like last year. At the other end of the index, the last three positions are again held by Turkmenistan, North Korea and Eritrea, three countries where freedom of information is non-existent. Despite occasional turbulence in the past year, these countries continue to be news and information black holes and living hells for the journalists who inhabit them. This year’s index covers 180 countries, Read more…

Obama’s Internal Review Panel Rips NSA Spying on Americans

December 19, 2013 Leave a comment

USA is the largest police state in the world. It not only spies on its own people but on the citizens of earth everywhere in the world. The countryspying-ap_s640x426 is controlled by hundreds of Federal Departments & agencies operating on 1300 facilities around the country, 850,000 Americans with top secret clearance are working at these facilities, almost for every 372 people there is one spy agent. At the end of the day all these unconstitutional spying are used just to make sure that the assets of the greedy 1% rich remain safe. SO MUCH ABOUT DEMOCRACY in a country, which is wrongly known for its freedom and liberty! [DID]

President Obama’s internal review panel has accused the government of abusing the Patriot Act and said many of the intelligence community’s key tools should be reined in, including the NSA’s phone-snooping program and the FBI’s use of national security letters to demand secret information from private businesses, according to the stunning report released Wednesday.

The panel told Mr. Obama to scrap the National Security Agency’s phone-records collection program, saying it’s an infringement of privacy, and said the government instead should ask phone companies to store the records. The NSA would be able to ask for the records only when it deems national security is at stake. Read more…

Lindsey Graham’s Plan for a U.S. War to Smash IRI regime

You Go Senator. [DID]66354307503195028050-read

Sen. Lindsey Graham is one of the strongest advocates of an American military strike against the Assad regime in Syria. He was unhappy when President Obama decided to seek congressional authorization for an attack, and then unhappy when his fellow lawmakers voiced disapproval of the president’s plan. Graham believes the diplomatic path chosen by the administration will lead to a debacle.

Given all that, Graham now says he will work with a bipartisan group of senators to craft a resolution authorizing the president to use military force — not against the Syrian regime but against Iran. In an appearance on Fox News’ Huckabee program over the weekend, Graham argued that such a resolution is essential, because American inaction in Syria will encourage Iran to go forward with its nuclear weapon program, eventually leading toward a Mideast conflagration if the U.S. doesn’t intervene.

Obama to World: Bad News. The American Empire Is Dead.

September 27, 2013 Leave a comment

U.S. President Barack Obama presented world leaders at the United Nations with an image of America as a reluctant superpower, ready to confront Iran’s nukes and kill its 68th Session Of The United Nations General Assembly Beginsenemies with targeted drone strikes, but unprepared to embark on open-ended military missions in Syria and other troubled countries. That, he hinted, should give the world cause for anxiety.

“The United States has a hard-earned humility when it comes to our ability to determine events inside other countries,” he said in his address before the 193-member General Assembly. “The notion of American empire may be useful propaganda, but it isn’t borne out by America’s current policy or public opinion.”

Obama said that “the recent debate within the United States over Syria clearly showed the danger for the world is not an America that is eager to immerse itself in the affairs of other countries or take on every problem in the region as its own. Read more…

NSA Broke Privacy Rules Thousands of Times Per Year, Audit Finds

August 17, 2013 Leave a comment

You have been suckered for too many years with the nonsense of national security!! Don’t make mistake, this is not a matter of partisanship to blame one party over another, this is us-government-nsa-indiscriminate-spying-on-all-americansthe performance of the gigantic watchdog octopus, the by-product of the unregulated-capitalism infrastructure, that has plunged its claws into every organs of the societal system to keep a central control over the people lives, making a POLICE STATE out of US country just to guarantee a safe haven and sanctuary for the 1% rich capitalist consortium. And you thought it is only N. Korea, which is notorious for its totalitarian rule!! No wonder Snowden becomes hero, he has defended his leaks as an effort “to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.” [DID]

The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008, according to an internal audit and other top-secret documents.

Most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by statute and executive order. They range from significant violations of law to typographical errors that resulted in unintended interception of U.S. e-mails and telephone calls.

The documents, provided earlier this summer to The Washington Post by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, include a level of detail and analysis that is not routinely shared with Congress or the special court that oversees surveillance. In one of the documents, agency personnel are instructed to remove details and substitute more generic language in reports to the Justice Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Obama’s Cyber Attack

The White House’s looming power grab to regulate the Internet. 

President Obama and Congress have checked out of Washington until after Election Day. But caveat, citizen. Their absence isn’t preventing harmful policy from spawning along the Potomac.

A case in point is a back door move to regulate the Internet. Any day now, the White House will issue an executive order on cybersecurity, according to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who said last week that the measure “is close to completion.” Read more…
