NSA Targeting of Israeli Leaders also Swept up the Content of Private Conversations with U.S. Lawmakers … The Hell with Liberties
WELCOME TO OBAMA IN WONDERLAND …
From the WSJ – U.S. Spy Net on Israel Snares Congress … National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders also swept up the content of private conversations with U.S. lawmakers. What else would you expect from the anti-liberty president? Barack Obama wound negotiate with Iran, yet spy on an ally like Israel. Isn’t it quite remarkable just how screwed up America has become under Obama as Obama had NSA spy on Israel during Iran nuclear deal negotiations. The hell with the fact that Obama was dealing with state sponsored terrorism and nuclear talks, lets spy on Israel to see how they might react.
It kind of makes you wonder who Barack Obama considers a friend and who he considers a foe. Obama promised to transform America and that is what he has done thanks to Americas voting this dangerous clown back into office. This is not the first time Obama has used government agencies against We the People … can you say IRS-gate of which has been completely swept under the carpet.
President Barack Obama announced two years ago he would curtail eavesdropping on friendly heads of state after the world learned the reach of long-secret U.S. surveillance programs.
But behind the scenes, the White House decided to keep certain allies under close watch, current and former U.S. officials said. Topping the list was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The U.S., pursuing a nuclear arms agreement with Iran at the time, captured communications between Mr. Netanyahu and his aides that inflamed mistrust between the two countries and planted a political minefield at home when Mr. Netanyahu later took his campaign against the deal to Capitol Hill.
The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears—an “Oh-s— moment,” one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.
White House officials believed the intercepted information could be valuable to counter Mr. Netanyahu’s campaign. They also recognized that asking for it was politically risky. So, wary of a paper trail stemming from a request, the White House let the NSA decide what to share and what to withhold, officials said. “We didn’t say, ‘Do it,’ ” a senior U.S. official said. “We didn’t say, ‘Don’t do it.’ ”
According to liberal logic, this makes Obama an anti-Semite.
President Obama announced two years ago that he would stop eavesdropping on leaders of U.S. allies, after the world learned the reach of long-secret U.S. surveillance programs. According to The Wall Street Journal, this meant an end to spying on French President François Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and other North Atlantic Treaty Organization leaders.
However, Israel apparently failed to make Obama’s list of true allies. The Journal reports that the NSA continued routinely to intercept the communications of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and send them to White House officials for dissection.
And that’s not all. Spying on Netanyahu reportedly led to eavesdropping on members of Congress and leaders of American Jewish organization with whom the Israeli prime minister and his government communicated.
Originally, the stated justification for spying on Netanyahu was fear that he would attack Iran without first warning the U.S. However, by 2013, U.S. intelligence agencies had determined that Israel wasn’t going to strike Iran, so the rationale shifted. Now, Team Obama wanted to know whether Israel had learned of secret negotiations between the U.S. and Iran.
Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas Calls Hillary Clinton “An Idiot” And “A Liar” For Use Of Private Email Server
How is someone who is a liar, an idiot, and shows such a lack of judgement fit to run for president, let alone be president?
During an interview on on 1440 KEYS radio in Corpus Christi, TX, Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) stated that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state shows she is “an idiot” and “a liar too.” Rep. Farenthold went on to say that her use of a private email server showed an incredible “lack of judgement,” saying her emails contained clearly labeled classified and sensitive information that was vulnerable to hacking.
But when it comes to Democrats and Hillary Clinton, what difference does it make. They are afforded a pass by the media. So as the GOP presidential primary debates go on and its all but silly season with the foolish moderator questions trying to do nothing but cause a food fight, Hillary gets a pass. As the GOP candidates are questioned on their every move, what the said or might have said and their opinions of what Donald Trump said that day that sucked up all the political oxygen in the room that day for the MSM, Hillary Clinton gets a pass.
Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas says Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state shows she is “an idiot” and “a liar too.”
“Hillary Clinton and her media machine try to dismiss but anybody who understands anything about how email works — and this is millennials in particular who grew up on the Internet — know that you’re an idiot to keep sensitive information on a server in your house,” Farenthold said on 1440 KEYS radio in Corpus Christi. [...]
“To think that Mrs. Clinton could secure something like that in her home is ludicrous,” he continued.
The Texas congressman noted he thought it showed an incredible “lack of judgement,” saying her emails contained clearly labeled classified and sensitive information that was vulnerable to hacking.
“It’s more evidence that just like President Obama, Hillary Clinton is a liar too,” he concluded.
Sorry folks, I have worked for government contracts in the past and if I had done 1/4th of what Hillary Clinton did, I would have been fired and criminally charged.
Email Shows Pentagon Offered ‘Forces that Could Move to Benghazi’ Immediately During the Deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate
LIARS … HERE IS A STORY THAT THE LIBERAL MSM HAS DECIDED NOT TO COVER TO PROTECT HILLARY CLINTON’s A$$ …
What the hell is it with emails and Hillary Clinton? From the Washington Free Beacon comes the following bombshell story that the MSM refuses to cover. Newly released emails, thanks to a FOIA from Judicial Watch, show that senior Defense Department official offered the State Department “forces that could move to Benghazi” immediately during the deadly 2012 attack there on the American consulate. You remember, the 2012 terror attack that the Obama administration lied about where both Obama and Hillary Clinton blamed the attack on a video tape and where four Americans, including the murder of Ambassador Stevens. So now it appears that there were assets offered and were reasy to go to help those under attack and no one pulled the trigger to make this op a go. UNREAL, but why should we not be surprised? They had assets in place to help those in distress in Benghazi as they were under attacks from terrorists and did nothing. Not only that, they lied to the America people that this even was the case.
Bash’s email seems to directly contradict testimony given by then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta before the Senate Armed Services Committee in February 2013. LISTEN TO HIS LIES, HERE (VIDEO). Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have a lot of explaining to do and it is sickening that the media refuses to hold their feet to the fire where Americans were slaughtered just because of their political leanings. Simply disgusting!!!
Newly released emails show that a senior Defense Department official offered the State Department “forces that could move to Benghazi” immediately during the deadly 2012 attack there on the American consulate.
Jeremy Bash, the former Pentagon chief of staff, offered to provide forces at 7:19 p.m. on the evening of the attack, “only hours after they had begun,” according to Judicial Watch, which disclosed the email on Tuesday.
“We have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak,” Bash wrote.
Portions of the email remain redacted by the Obama administration.
“The Obama administration redacted the details of the military forces available, oddly citing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption that allows the withholding of ‘deliberative process’ information,” according to Judicial Watch.
The newly disclosed email contradicts testimony to Congress by Obama administration officials who cited the inability to immediately provide forces in response to the attack.
Judicial Watch press release: New Benghazi Email Shows DOD Offered State Department “Forces that Could Move to Benghazi” Immediately – Specifics Blacked Out in New Document.
Judicial Watch today released a new Benghazi email from then-Department of Defense Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash to State Department leadership immediately offering “forces that could move to Benghazi” during the terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. In an email sent to top Department of State officials, at 7:19 p.m. ET, only hours after the attack had begun, Bash says, “we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.” The Obama administration redacted the details of the military forces available, oddly citing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption that allows the withholding of “deliberative process” information.
Bash’s email seems to directly contradict testimony given by then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta before the Senate Armed Services Committee in February 2013. Defending the Obama administration’s lack of military response to the nearly six-hour-long attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Panetta claimed that “time, distance, the lack of an adequate warning, events that moved very quickly on the ground prevented a more immediate response.”
The first assault occurred at the main compound at about 9:40 pm local time – 3:40 p.m. ET in Washington, DC. The second attack on a CIA annex 1.2 miles away began three hours later, at about 12 am local time the following morning – 6 p.m. ET.
Intelligence Analysts Accuse CENTCOM of Covering Up Cooked ISIS Intel … The Obama Policy on ISIS is a Disaster!!! Did WH Pressue to Ease Off on ISIS Intel?
WHO IS THE REAL JV, OBAMA OR ISIS? DID THE WHITE HOUSE PRESSURE ANALYSTS TO EASE OFF ON NEGATIVE ASSESSMENT OF ISIS?
SORRY, BUT NOTHING SHOULD SHOCK US ANYMORE AS TO WHAT COMES FROM THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE … From The Daily Beast comes the following troubling new story … Allegations are mounting that senior intelligence officials at Central Command not only skewed findings on the ISIS war to please D.C., but tried to hide what they did. But weren’t we just told by White House Spox Josh Earnest that Barack Obama will spend the next year with “a clear eyed assessment of his view of what’s happening” when it comes to dealing with ISIS? Let’s be serious folks, Barack Obama has never taken the threat of ISIS seriously. It is Obama who called them the JV. Josh Ernest has claimed that Obama is not afraid of receiving bad news. Really? One might add the caveat of receiving, listening and acting upon bad news are three completely separate things. Why does plausible deniability come to mind here with this story with regards to Barack Obama?
So where did the coverup and cooking of ISIS intel start and were they ordered to do so? Fox News was told by a source close to the CENTCOM analysts that the pressure on them included at least two emails saying they needed to “cut it out” and “toe the line.”
Analysts at U.S. Central Command were pressured to ease off negative assessments about the Islamic State threat and were even told in an email to “cut it out,” Fox News has learned – as an investigation expands into whether intelligence reports were altered to present a more positive picture.
Those emails, among others, are now in the possession of the Pentagon inspector general. The IG’s probe is expanding into whether intelligence assessments were changed to give a more positive picture of the anti-ISIS campaign.
In July, a group of intelligence analysts at the U.S. military’s Central Command accused their bosses of distorting and selectively editing intelligence reports about the fight against ISIS in order to portray that campaign as more successful than it really was. As a result of those complaints, the Pentagon’s inspector general opened an investigation.
Now, the allegations of misconduct have extended to a possible cover-up, with some analysts accusing the senior intelligence officials at CENTCOM, Maj. Gen. Steven Grove and his civilian deputy, Gregory Ryckman, of deleting emails and files from computer systems before the inspector general could examine them, three individuals familiar with the investigation told The Daily Beast.
One U.S. official said the alleged activity could amount to obstruction and interference with the inspector general’s investigation, which began last summer. He noted that files relevant to the investigation began to disappear from CENTCOM computers after the Pentagon watchdog’s staff began their work.
Two sources said that investigators are piecing together a trail of emails and reports to find out what may have been deleted, as well as what officials outside CENTCOM knew about potential manipulation of intelligence.
The analysts themselves have taken steps to preserve material that could be used as evidence, these people said.
All three individuals spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.
Food for thought from Town Hall.com:
Further, Earnest argued Obama will spend the next year with “a clear eyed assessment of his view of what’s happening” when it comes to dealing with ISIS.
There are two major problems with these claims and assertions. First, last week investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson revealed that her sources, who have worked in the White House, have told her Obama is flat out rejecting intelligence about Islamic groups he doesn’t consider terrorists.
“I have talked to people who have worked in the Obama administration who firmly believe he has made up his mind, I would say closed his mind, they say, to the intelligence they try to bring him about various groups he does not consider terrorists even if they’re on the U.S. list of designated terrorists,” Attkisson said during an interview with Newsmax. “I don’t know the reasoning for it I’ve only been told by those who have allegedly attempted to present him or been in the circle that has attempted to present him with certain intelligence that they said he doesn’t want it, he said he doesn’t want it or he won’t read it in some instances.”
Second, we’ve been hearing for months about the manipulation and downgrading of ISIS intelligence to make the situation in Iraq and Syria look better before being presented to Obama in the Oval Office.

This this just smoke and mirrors or is the FBI really serious?
According to The Politico, the FBI is stpping up their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Sorry, if there was really equal justice Hillary Clinton would already have withdrawn her presidential run and have been escorted in leg irons to the hoosegow for the federal crimes she has committed.
Even as Hillary Clinton tries to put questions about her private email server behind her, the FBI has stepped up inquiries into the security of the former Secretary of State’s home-made email system, and how aides communicated over email, POLITICO has learned.
The FBI’s recent moves suggest that its inquiry could have evolved from the preliminary fact-finding stage that the agency launches when it receives a credible referral, according to former FBI and DOJ officials inteviewed by POLITICO.
“This sounds to me like it’s more than a preliminary inquiry; it sounds like a full-blown investigation,” said Tom Fuentes, former assistant director of the FBI. “When you have this amount of resources going into it …. I think it’s at the investigative level.”
The FBI declined to respond to questions about the scope of its ongoing work.
But POLITICO learned that the FBI around early October requested documents from a company involved in the server arrangement after Clinton left State. It also interviewed a former high-ranking policy official at State about the contents of top Clinton aides’ emails.
