CIA Spied On Senate Intelligence Committee So They Are Invoking The Constitution!

From the New York Times: The Central Intelligence Agency’s attempt to keep secret the details of a defunct detention and interrogation program has escalated a battle between the agency and members of Congress and led to an investigation by the C.I.A.’s internal watchdog into the conduct of agency employees. The agency’s inspector general began the inquiry partly as a response to complaints from members of Congress that C.I.A. employees were improperly monitoring the work of staff members Read more […]

Congress Uses Budget To Secretly Defund Plan For Military Takeover Of CIA Drone Program

So, while defunding Obamacare is some kind of gross abuse of authority, defunding the Obama Administration’s plans to move the drone program from the CIA to the military is just fine for liberals. They can micromanage the executive branch through legislation and funding. The Washington Post reports: Congress has moved to block President Obama’s plan to shift control of the U.S. drone campaign from the CIA to the Defense Department, inserting a secret provision in the massive government spending Read more […]

How Can Any German Be Sure Merkel Wasn’t Blackmailed By NSA? What About Americans?

As Americans, if Merkel was forced to do the right thing by US blackmail, we might be OK with that. But we need to think in the long term. Germans, whatever their faults or virtues, do not want their elected leaders to be the puppets of a foreign government. And, if they think a foreign government has control of their leader, then peace between those two countries is going to degrade. I have no evidence that the US ever blackmailed any leader, but yesterday the New York Times released a story Read more […]

NSA: You Can’t Drone Kill Without Us

Hassan Ghul may sound like a Batman villain but he was supposedly an affiliate of Osama Bin Laden before we supposedly killed him using a drone. The Washington Post has released a story about how the NSA intercepted an email from him to his wife which allowed them to determine his location and give the CIA the information they needed to send a drone after him. The documents came from Edward Snowden but this is one secret that the NSA will certainly try to use to their own advantage. The NSA is “focused Read more […]

CIA Looks for Ways to Use Weather as Weapon

So now the CIA — producer of such historic favorites as Benghazi, countless secret foreign wars, MK-Ultra and Project Paperclip — is openly studying what will happen if it starts mucking around with ways to manipulate the climate. In a masterpiece of doublespeak, the CIA is spending $630,000 on a study of ways to “geoengineer” Earth’s climate, with the excuse that it is worried that climate change could cause political instability and, dadgum it, the CIA just wants to keep the world a happy Read more […]

New Evidence Suggests TWA Flight 800 Was Shot Down Leaving New York

On July 17, 1996, TWA flight 800 took off from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City carrying 212 passengers and 12 flight crew.  As the Boeing 747-100 climbed in altitude and turned towards its destination of Paris, the plane exploded just off the shore of East Moriches, New York, killing everyone on board. A number of witnesses at the time claimed that they had seen something like a missile or flare strike the plane just before it exploded.  The National Transportation and Read more […]

Obama’s Benghazi Scapegoat to Become National Security Adviser

On September 11, 2012, between 125 – 200 Islamic militants attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.  After nearly eight hours of fighting, US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, US Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, embassy security officers Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were dead and ten others were wounded. Over the next month, the American people heard a myriad of stories about what happened that tragic night.  We were told that it was a riot over a garage-made anti-Islam Read more […]

Rand Paul Establishes 2016 Formidability In Epic Filibuster

The store I work at was closed yesterday due to inclement weather. It was a good thing, though, because I really didn’t feel like going out there in the snow to shovel the global warming out of the driveway and scrape the global warming off of the car, all while global-warming flakes would be blizzarding downward and sneaking into my collar to get me all cold and wet–cold, as only global warming can make me. Being stuck at home, I had the great opportunity to watch Senator Rand Paul filibuster Read more […]

Paul Filibusters Brennan to Get Answers on Drone Policy

Then from the seats of complacency, a lone figure rose. It’s not exactly leading a charge onto the beaches of Normandy. In fact, it’s probably more akin to charging down a hallway chasing a platoon of stormtroopers, with nothing but a laser pistol and audacity on your side. But Rand Paul’s decision to singlehandedly block John Brennan’s nomination to be the CIA’s new director is pretty impressive nonetheless. The Senate Intelligence Committee approved Brennan’s nomination on Tuesday 12-3, despite Read more […]

The Petraeus Scandal, Truthtelling, and Infidelity

Tune in for the latest episode of As the Military World Turns… In a scandalous story with more twists and turns than the Road to Hana, we see a married CIA director who resigned after an affair with his Harvard-educated biographer, discovered because of her harassing emails targeting a doctor’s wife who was the CIA director’s “close friend,” read by an FBI agent who emailed shirtless pictures of himself that were uncovered in an investigation of “inappropriate communications” between Read more […]
