Bombshell: how far did Obama spying go?

Bombshell: How far did Obama spying go?

The Sharyl Attkisson case.

by Jon Rappoport

April 6, 2017

During the transition between election and inauguration, Trump associates have phone conversations with foreign leaders. Those conversations are recorded by US intelligence agencies and turned into secret intelligence reports…

Former Obama National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, is accused of “unmasking” the names of Trump team members contained in those US intelligence reports and illegally leaking their names to the press. Bloomberg reports: “One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration.”

In other words, US intelligence agencies, under Obama, were spying on Trump associates—and Rice obtained the names of those associates, which are supposed to be kept confidential.

Leaking the names to the press, in the current political atmosphere, would result in the impression that Trump associates were having improper conversations with foreign leaders, or even “colluding” with them. Lots of innuendo here.

The Susan Rice spying scandal points to what? More. Other Americans the Obama team spied on. Other Americans who were opposed to the Obama agenda. Other Americans who were critical of the Obama administration. Other Americans who were exposing the Obama administration.

For example, former CBS star investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson—who has sued members of the Obama team and several federal agencies. That lawsuit has just been referred to another venue by the judge in the case. He could have dismissed the suit, but he didn’t. He wants it to proceed. He wants Attkisson to have her day in court.

You might remember Attkisson was uncovering highly embarrassing details about the gun-walking operation, Fast & Furious, and the attack on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi. She was making the Obama administration extremely uncomfortable.

But let me quote Judge Emet Sullivan’s recent order transferring Attkisson’s suit:

“In 2011——at the same time that Ms. Attkisson was conducting investigations and issuing certain of her high-profile news reports——the Attkissons ‘began to notice anomalies in numerous electronic devices at their home in Virginia.’ These anomalies included Ms. Attkisson’s work-issued laptop computer and a family desktop computer ‘turning on and off at night without input from anyone in the household,’ ‘the house alarm chirping daily at different times,’ and ‘television problems, including interference.’ All of these electronic devices used ‘the Verizon FiOS line installed in [the Attkissons’] home,’ but Verizon was unable to stanch the anomalous activity despite multiple attempts. In January 2012, the Attkissons’ residential internet service ‘began constantly dropping off’.”

“In February 2012, ‘sophisticated surveillance spyware’ was installed on Ms. Attkisson’s work-issued laptop computer. A later forensic computer analysis revealed that Ms. Attkisson’s laptop and the family’s desktop computer had been the ‘targets of unauthorized surveillance efforts.’ That same forensic analysis revealed that Ms. Attkisson’s mobile phone was also targeted for surveillance when it was connected to the family’s desktop computer. The infiltration of that computer and the extraction of information from it was ‘executed via an IP address owned, controlled, and operated by the United States Postal service.’ Additionally, based on the sophisticated nature of the software used to carry out the infiltration and software fingerprints indicating the use of the federal government’s proprietary software, the infiltration and surveillance appeared to be perpetrated by persons in the federal government.”

“An independent forensic computer analyst hired by CBS subsequently reported finding evidence on both Ms. Attkisson’s work-issued laptop computer and her family’s desktop computer of ‘a coordinated, highly-skilled series of actions and attacks directed at the operation of the computers.’ Computer forensic analysis also indicated that remote actions were taken in December 2012 to remove the evidence of the electronic infiltration and surveillance from Ms. Attkisson’s computers and other home electronic equipment.”

“As Ms. Attkisson’s investigations and reporting continued, in October 2012 the Attkissons noticed ‘an escalation of electronic problems at their personal residence, including interference in home and mobile phone lines, computer interference, and television interference.’ In November of that year, Ms. Attkisson’s mobile phones ‘experienced regular interruptions and interference, making telephone communications unreliable, and, at times, virtually impossible’.”

“Additionally, in December 2012, a person with government intelligence experience conducted an inspection of the exterior of the Attkissons’ Virginia home. That investigator discovered an extra Verizon FiOS fiber optics line. Soon thereafter, after a Verizon technician was instructed by Ms. Attkisson to leave the extra cable at the home, the cable disappeared, and the Attkissons were unable to determine what happened to it. In March 2013, the Attkissons’ desktop computer malfunctioned, and in September of that year, while Ms. Attkisson was working on a story at her home, she observed that her personal laptop computer was remotely accessed and controlled, resulting in data being deleted from it. On April 3, 2013, Ms. Attkisson filed a complaint with the Inspector General of the Department of Justice. The Inspector General’s investigation was limited to an analysis of the compromised desktop computer, and the partially-released report that emerged from that investigation reported ‘no evidence of intrusion,’ although it did note ‘a great deal of advanced mode computer activity not attributable to Ms. Attkisson or anybody in her household’.”

“The Attkissons allege that the ‘cyber-attacks’ they ‘suffered in [their] home’ were perpetrated by ‘personnel working on behalf of the United States.’ Accordingly, they have asserted various claims against the United States and against former Attorney General Eric Holder, former Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, and unknown agents of the Department of Justice, the United States Postal Service, and the United States, all in their individual capacities. Those claims include claims against the United States under the FTCA and claims against the individual federal officers for violations of constitutional rights under Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971)…”

Spying, surveillance, harassment, interference, attempts at intimidation.

Are you noticing any significant mainstream news coverage of this case? Of course not.

Ordinarily, mainstream reporters protect their own colleagues, but here there is silence.

Let’s call it what it is: PARTISAN POLITICAL SILENCE.

The silence is based on a principle they don’t teach at journalism schools:

“We omit the news that contradicts our agenda. Our agenda IS the news.”

Memo to the new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions: You could launch your own investigation into the Attkisson case. Bring it front and center. Uncover all the nasty details. Expose the perpetrators.

Now.

    I’m sure she’s not alone.

    • elliottjab says:

      Correct – she is not – but she has critical info about much of the O admin & shenanigans.

      Even likely commentors such as I have gathered many daily interruptions of service.

      Clear the phone at night – power down – boot up in morning & numerous pages have been opened. Reading deep articles regarding political happenings – phone closes back to boot page.

      RT is Interupted with shut downs regularly. It’s all feeble efforts – but it’s there – like radiation warning signs…

      “We see you – we know what & who you like politically”…

      Right now – am becoming dissapointed in Trump’s supposed swing to war…

      • elliottjab says:

        ‘lowly’ not likely…

      • Michael Burns says:

        Familiar landscape…I was writing a deep article today.about 200 words. Keep getting bothered withgoogle pictures, seems they ahave invaded my pictures files with their little bots.
        Wordpress, I find words changing, editing…not mine.
        I make a point of shutting it al down at night, only to awake to my thing on or in sleep mode.
        I have startedpulling the actual power cord from my Internet box ouy and rebooting the whole system the next day.
        Nice to find that I am not the only paranoid one…*smirk* *laugh*

    Unmasking indeed

  3. Ray says:

    I have no confidence the spying on Trump will get legs.

  4. Terrific report. Americans don’t realize the political conspiracies that extend from the White House down to their local borough or township. It’s all about the money and holding power to make more of it.

  5. Terri says:

    These criminals should be prosecuted immediately. Our reps think they can do as they please because the people don’t speak up. The above continuing scandals and corruption occur because they think they are above the law. Our public servants need to hear us remind them this is a nation of laws, not men and no one is above the law. We can not condone corruption with our silence, or we are complicit and culpable. They work for us and unless we take our power, rights and responsibilities and use them lawfully and legally, nothing will change.

    President Trump is asking everyone to forward this information to a minimum of 20 people, and to ask each of those to do likewise.

    Let your reps know you demand they pass the Congressional Reform Act of 2017. Let them know you will vote them out if they don’t comply.
    This is a start to rein them in.
    1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / woman collects a
    salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office.

    2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social
    Security.

    All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the
    Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the
    Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American
    people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

    3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all
    Americans do.

    4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
    Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

    5. Congress loses their current health care system and
    participates in the same health care system as the American people.

    6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the
    American people.

    7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are
    void effective 3/1/17. The American people did not make this contract
    with Congressmen/women.

    Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in
    Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned
    citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home
    and go back to work.
    In a recent interview with CNBC, President Trump offers one of the best
    quotes about the debt ceiling:
    “I could end the deficit in five minutes,” he told CNBC. “You
    just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than
    3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election”.

    Thanks Jon, for letting me put this here, so more people can be aware and take action.

  6. We shall see how far this goes.

  7. From Quebec says:

    As far as I am concerned, Obama can rot in jail or in hell, for what I care.

    What really gets to me today, is the fact that Trump wants to go to war with Syria. because of the Syrian gas attack who is clearly a False Flag. How can he not see that?

    Since Steeve Bannon and General Flynn were kicked out and replaced by liberal Ivanka Trump and her globalist husband Jared Kushner

    I think he should get rid of Jared Kushner, and I think that Ivanka should stay at home and take care of her kids.

    It’s the first time that I am mad at Trump. I hope he will lighten up or else he will lose all of his voters.

  8. From Quebec says:

    Good lord! He did it. . It is the end of Trump presidency. Just read the comments below this article:

    • honestliberty says:

      Let’s see if Jon is critical of trump instead of continuing to play the false left right paradigm in favor of the right. Anyone else tired of the constant attacks solely on the left? As if there is any difference between these parties?
      C’mon Jon, you are supposed to be free of the matrix. Why do you keep putting up the hegelian dialectic?

      • Michael Burns says:

        And the vulture moves in…

        I love when you fuckers show up to gloat about something.

        Gives me a chance to exercise my vitriol for you smug little bastards.

        Smelling decay are we SFB, it so easy to find you. Stick a pile of shit out there and you show up.

        I have never understood Jon as a Trump supporter, and you haven’t read enough of this blog to understand a fucking thing.

        I have read many criticisms of Trump… Here! I have never heard Jon specifically mention who he voted for, if in fact he did vote. I don’t really care… So I wouldn’t know if Trump’s his man.

        “The pest, in a sense, is a very superior being to us: he knows where to find us and how–usually in the bath or in sexual intercourse or asleep.” – Bukowski

        I am a not a Trump supporter myself, but I do admire that he has woken the sleeping left with their touchy feely plastic fucking sentiments. So they may rage like yourself and run into the street protesting  breaking Starbucks windows, and generally making a mess; and they are mad now that the dark one has left the building and is now in spy business; big mommy didn’t make it to the White House. And oh well…”squirrel!”…I’ll order quickly over amazon their “I’m a male feminist” tee-shirt…a vivascent pink one. And go out there with my aging hippie mom, and protest the Groper in Chief.

        There is a difference between, the parties, ya twit, not enough room in here to explain, but let me throw out a few points of the obvious. The left doesn’t exist any more, the remnant just chases it tail and parrots out Trump..Trump…..Trump.

        The republican mind seems more matured and grown up now; its lost the idealism of youth, and knows it’s singular in mind even though they vote together. They don’t think of themselves as group per se…

        The left can’t get past the Groucho in Marxism, and has misunderstood social to resemble something parasitic…blood sucking, tick like, itchy. And very tiresome. A pest to be tolerated.

        The left are insects like yourself looking always looking for decay. But never ever critically thinking about what has happened to themselves. And have not come to understand why they still have a taste for brest milk, and why they still wet their beds. And LGBTQRV can also have a X…right?

        Have you read any Hegel you fucking twat, or are you burping up the meme you read in a comment one day….hm. Have you read any philosophy? Do you have a philosophy peanut?

        I’m filled to the brim with your…*in a whiny voice*… “Let’s see if Jon is critical of Trump instead of continuing…”. 

        Were you virtue signaling? Because you won’t find any of your genus here. We have no pity, none at all.

        The constant attack on the left is because.. SFB that they are as docile and spite driven as you comment, you fuck up. They put vaginas on their heads and listen to idiots like Madonna, and give Oscars to terrorists and peace prizes to fools. They been raised on false merit, and helicopter mommies, and whine like your comment, but never offer any thing insightful in the extended.

        Trump in his days in office so, has done more that that idiot Obama.

        Which BTW, Hegelian dialectic are you gasping out Problem/Reaction/Solution?…if so can you put out in say a thousand words in minute detail on ‘your’ thoughts. Hegel’s theory on that goes past the triple nouns, and succeeds  with action words…how about divide and conquer, that was on the same meme page.

        So piss off and go back to your basement hovel and  ask mommy to bring your down a sandwich…wouldn’t want to disturb you playing with your action figures…ya fuckin child.

  9. Too far. Way beyond the realm of legal.

  10. Dang. This is some scary stuff.
