House Republicans Vote To Release Classified Memo They Wrote Attacking Russia Probe

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s Republican allies in Congress advanced their monthslong assault on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election on Monday, voting along partisan lines to release a classified memo slamming officials from the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation who have investigated the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

The episode has more than a touch of Washington theater to it: Republican staffers wrote the memo, and Republican members of Congress, who always had the power to vote to release it, spent weeks calling on themselves to do so. 

But it was still an extraordinary event. In a letter last week, a top Justice Department official said releasing the classified memo would be an “unprecedented action” that would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could “risk harm to national security and to ongoing investigations.”

The department did not “understand why the Committee would possibly seek to disclose classified and law enforcement sensitive information without first consulting with the relevant members of the Intelligence Community,” the letter read.

It is extremely unusual for lawmakers — especially Republican lawmakers — to clash so publicly with law enforcement on issues of national security and classification. Trump has five days to block the memo’s release, but has indicated he will side with congressional Republicans on the matter, over the objections of the Justice Department.

Republicans argued that releasing their own memo is a matter of transparency. Making the GOP memo public will allow journalists and the public to at least partially assess the claims it makes. But fully judging its merits will also be difficult without access to the underlying intelligence information, which is also classified and will not be released.

At the same time, Republicans voted down a Democratic effort to release a memo authored by Democratic staffers that they say combated some of the inaccuracies in the GOP memo. While members of Congress will be allowed to read the Democratic memo, the public will not.

“The ‘release the memo’ crowd, apparently, doesn’t want to release the memo,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told reporters after the vote. 

“We have crossed a deeply regrettable line in this committee, where for the first time in the 10 years or so that I’ve been on the committee, there was a vote to politicize the declassification process of intelligence, and potentially compromise sources and methods,” Schiff added.

There’s indeed more at stake than D.C. grandstanding: The release of the document is part of a pattern of behavior by the president and his congressional allies — all of it apparently aimed at undermining Mueller’s probe and shielding Trump from scrutiny.

Since Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey — then the official responsible for the Russia investigation — last summer, the president, Republican members of Congress and the right-wing media have battled to undermine public perceptions of the bureau and of the Justice Department:

  • Andrew McCabe, Comey’s former deputy, stepped down Monday after weeks of pressure from Trump and Republicans. Republicans have charged that McCabe was biased against the president because his wife ran for a Virginia state Senate seat as a Democrat, but FBI documents released earlier this month indicate he followed bureau recusal rules. The day after Trump fired Comey, the president called McCabe to complain about Comey being allowed to take a government-funded plane back to Washington, NBC reported Monday. When McCabe said he wasn’t asked to authorize the flight but would have approved it, Trump told McCabe to ask his wife — who lost her race for state Senate — how it feels to be a loser, and hung up the phone, according to NBC.

  • The president, Republicans in Congress, and the right-wing media have spun tales of a dark conspiracy involving Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, two FBI officials who were having an affair and exchanged text messages critical of Trump and other politicians from both parties. The evidence suggests Page and Strzok were actually driven more by loyalty to the FBI than partisan political considerations.

  • The memo the House voted to release Monday reportedly focuses on criticizing Rod Rosenstein, a Republican Trump appointee at the Justice Department who now has responsibility over the Mueller probe. The memo, The New York Times reported, accuses Rosenstein of approving an application to surveil a former Trump campaign official last spring. Trump has long resented Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller as special counsel after Trump fired Comey. Trump reportedly considered firing Rosenstein last summer, but instead ordered Mueller’s firing — only to back away the decision after his lawyer threatened to quit.  

The sustained assault on the FBI seems to have affected perceptions of the bureau among Republicans and independents. Just over half of the public has at least a fair amount of trust in the FBI, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, down 12 points since 2015. The percentage of Republicans and independents saying they trust the agency dropped by 22 points and 15 points, respectively.

The GOP memo lays the groundwork for that distrust. It was the work of the office of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the House Intelligence Committee chairman and close Trump ally who recused himself from the committee’s investigation into ties between Trump and Russia after he was caught last year promoting a different surveillance scandal with intelligence cooked up by Trump White House officials.

The memo reportedly suggests that FBI agents obscured their reliance on a controversial dossier about Trump’s ties to Russia when they sought a warrant to spy on Carter Page, a Trump campaign adviser. Republicans have long sought to discredit the dossier, which was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Committee members voted along partisan lines earlier this month to allow any member of Congress to read Nunes’ classified memo. Some of the Republicans who read the memo described the allegations as “sickening” and “worse than Watergate.” Democrats who read it said it was a partisan hack job.

“Rife with factual inaccuracies,” said Schiff. “This may help carry White House water, but it is a deep disservice to our law enforcement professionals.”

BOMBSHELL: Classified memo detailing Obama targeted Trump campaign with bogus FISA court warrant… “Is this America or the KGB?” asks stunned GOP


Image: BOMBSHELL: Classified memo detailing Obama targeted Trump campaign with bogus FISA court warrant… “Is this America or the KGB?” asks stunned GOP

(Natural News)
You won’t hear about this on the Fake News Network or read much in the Washington Post, New York Times, or any other establishment media outlet because it is a scandal that is potentially damaging to their hero president, Barack Obama, his administration, and Democrats in general.

In recent days, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a Top Secret memo detailing what is believed to be massive abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court by the Obama administration and Deep State political operatives within the Department of Justice and the FBI.

In particular, it is believed that the 44th president and his political sycophants deliberately fabricated “intelligence” — using the so-called“Trump dossier” with its baseless, unsubstantiated allegations, to justify getting a “counterintelligence” surveillance warrant from the FISA court.

What did they need the warrant for? Who was the target? That would be the campaign of Donald J. Trump.

“Fox is told that while the Intel Cmte voted in favor of the Simpson transcript, Democrats blocked the release of other documents. The committee has also voted on a motion by Rep. Pete King (R-NY) to make available to all House members a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” Fox News correspondent Pergram tweeted on Thursday.

In another tweet, the Washington Examiner‘s Byron York called the release a “major development. “Report contains answer to question of whether FBI/DOJ used Trump dossier to secure FISA warrant to spy on Americans, plus other issues. Now, whole House can know. Public still in dark,” he added. (Related: DEEP STATE: Rep. Jordan says FBI paid for, then based its Team Trump probe on BOGUS ‘dossier’ (Video.)

The memo, which remains Top Secret for no good reason and as such must be viewed in a secure room, has since been seen by a number of lawmakers — well, Republican lawmakers, because they seem to be the only ones who are trying to get to the bottom of this massive, scandalous abuse of our political and justice systems.

And all of them who have read it are shocked, stunned, and worried about the future of our republic. It’s that bad.

“You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania told Fox News, one of the few major news outlets tracking this story.

“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan added.

“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows noted further. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said he could see a number of people within the FBI and DoJ who not only could lose their jobs but be indicted as well.

“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.

He told Fox News host Sean Hannity, “I believe this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail. I was very persuaded by the evidence.” He further noted that he believes it was entirely appropriate for GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham to refer the matter to the Trump Justice Department for criminal prosecution.

“I don’t take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation. But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that information along to the Justice Department for appropriate review,” Grassley said in a statement.

Finally, former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who has been tracking this issue on his CRTV program, also sees trouble ahead not just for the Obama officials involved, but for the former president himself.

“Take it to the bank, the FBI/FISA docs are devastating for the Dems. The whole image of a benevolent Barack Obama they’ve disingenuously tried to portray is about to be destroyed. The real Obama, the vengeful narcissist, is going to be exposed for all to see,” he tweeted.

AP Engages in Classic ‘Unclear’ Spin in Story on Classified Emails Found on Weiner’s Laptop

In an unbylined 11:31 a.m. Eastern Time dispatch Saturday, the Associated Press demonstrated why anyone trying to get to the truth about the status of the Hillary Clinton’s private server-scandal — which is clearly not over, and clearly has not been “litigated a million times,” as CNN’s desperate Don Lemon claimed on Thursday in shouting down a conservative panelist — needs to go somewhere else to find it.

The AP report’s most obvious Democratic Party talking points-inspired spins attempted to make a distinction which shouldn’t make a difference about the nature of the classified emails found on former congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop, and deliberately mischaracterized former FBI Director James Comey’s November 6, 2016 letter to Congress re-closing what had been a closed investigation nine days earlier.

Here is the full AP report (presented in full because of its relative brevity and for fair use and discussion purposes; red underlines and numbered tags are mine):

APonWeinerHRCclassifiedEmails123017

The discussion which follows will take the red boxed or underlined items in order.

For what has to be at least the thousandth time, whether these emails were or weren’t “deemed classified” at the time they were sent is, per the related statutes, irrelevant to whether a crime has been committed in sending, receiving, or storing them on unapproved devices over unapproved channels. That’s because, as Andrew McCarthy at National Review explained over two years ago, the emails were born classified based on their content (link is in original; bolds are mine):

… Clinton rationalizes that because the emails were not stamped classified, she could not have been expected to know they were classified. As I’ve been emphasizing since March, she is trying to exploit the public’s unfamiliarity with the distinction between classified documents and classified information – the former are obviously classified because they are marked as such; the latter, because of its nature, is well known to national security officials to be classified – regardless of whether it is marked as such or even written down at all. … Mrs. Clinton (had) undeniable knowledge that she was pervasively exchanging classified information over her private email system.

… President Obama(‘s) Executive Order 13526, entitled “Classified National Security Information,” … explains that information is deemed classified if its disclosure would cause “damage to the national security.”

It was Mrs. Clinton’s job to know what information is classified, regardless of a document’s markings. But even if she couldn’t make the distinction, intent doesn’t matter, nor does it matter whether your illegal handling of classified information had negative consequences:

Accidentally removing a single classified message from controlled spaces, without any evidence of intent or exposure to hostile forces, can get you fired and cost you your clearance. Repeated instances will land you in prison.

That is, unless your name is Hillary Clinton, and your FBI Director at the time you should have been criminally charged was James Comey, who was being “helped” in ensuring that no charges would be filed by Hillary fan and rabid Trump-hater Peter Strzok.

As to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, the AP failed to disclose that JW’s original “Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit that resulted in Friday’s coming document-dump was filed in May 2015,” over 2-1/2 years ago. Also note that the State Department released these emails on the Friday afternoon before what is probably the year’s lowest-interest news weekend.

The AP’s breezy declaration that “the FBI declared that there was nothing new” is not what Comey’s November 6, 2016 letter said. In the context of events which have since transpired, it’s reasonable to believe that the “nothing new” claim is false.

Readers will not find the words “nothing new” in Comey’s letter:

I write to supplement my October 28, 2016 letter that notified you the FBI would be taking additional investigative steps with respect to former Secretary of State Clinton’s use of a personal email server. Since my letter, the FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation. During that process, we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.

Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.

I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short period of time.

“We have not changed our conclusions” is most certainly not the same as saying that there is “nothing new.”

Perhaps it’s not a stretch to reach that assessment when reported by a responsible law enforcement officer, but based on what we’ve seen of him since the election, no one can reasonably contend that Comey now fits that description. We now know that Comey has, at a minimum, lied to the American people about the lack of criminal intent on the part of Mrs. Clinton and her apparatchiks, who deleted emails under subpoena; ensured that a pliant FBI would destroy the laptops of key potential witnesses; and leaked information to the press without authorization. The AP’s blind assumption that Comey’s November 6, 2016 letter showed that there was “nothing new” is completely unwarranted.

As to whether Abedin and Weiner committed crimes, the same logic applies to them as applied to Mrs. Clinton. Based on the statutes involved, they committed crimes; that the Department of Justice and FBI failed to prosecute them doesn’t change that obvious fact.

<<< Please support MRC’s NewsBusters team with a tax-deductible contribution today. >>>

As to the blue line added to the AP report, that “Comey was the determining factor” in Hillary Clinton’s defeat,  boo-freaking-hoo. It’s all Mrs. Clinton’s fault for having the private server in the first place. Once you commit brazenly illegal acts, you’re in no position to complain about their unfortunate consequences.

More Classified Hillary Emails Revealed

More Classified Hillary Emails Revealed



by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)



Judicial Watch (JW) revealed new classified Hillary pay-to-pay emails, more evidence of her corrupt State Department practices, criminality gone unpunished.



Emails released from her private server included classified material. A 2011 exchange with Sid Blumenthal discussed “serious trouble for the Libyan rebels,’ ” said JW.



It urged anti-Gaddafi leaders “to consider hiring private troops (mercenaries) to support, organize, and train the rebel forces in Libya.”



Blumenthal added: “A small number of private troops could turn the battle against Qaddafi’s forces, particularly if they are equipped with sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons.” 



Hillary directed her aide Huma Abedin to “print for me w/o any identifiers.”



Thousands revealed include material she tried to delete or failed to disclose. They’re also available on the State Department web site.



In August 2009, Clinton Foundation donor/CME Group chairman asked Hillary to help set up meetings with Asian leaders. 



She responded favorably. The CME Group also paid her $225,000 for a speaking engagement, one of many highly-paid ones with numerous firms, mostly Wall Street banks.



In November 2016, the State Department was ordered to produce no less than 500 pages of records monthly for Judicial Watch – per its FOIA lawsuit.



At the current rate of release, it’ll be at least until 2020 to get what’s judicially ordered.



JW: “These new Clinton emails add to the pile of evidence demonstrating the need for a serious criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton and her associates. It is shameful that this State Department is releasing these Clinton emails so slowly.”



“I trust President Trump agrees the State Department and Justice Department need to follow the rule of law and stop covering for Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.”



She remains unindicted for major war crimes, racketeering and perjury. A previous article discussed the possible appointment of a special council to investigate Clinton Foundation shenanigans.



There’s plenty of dirt to reveal overall – notably war crimes, RICO violations and lying to Congress, enough to lock her up longterm.

Trump to allow release of classified JFK assassination files









 






US President Donald Trump says he will allow the release of classified documents relating to the assassination of President John F Kennedy, shot dead while visiting Dallas, Texas in 1963.

The documents were due to be disclosed by the National Archives later this month, however there were some media reports that Trump would not approve the publication of all of the files.

In a tweet sent early Saturday, Trump indicated he will allow the release, “subject to the receipt of further information”. It’s not clear what “further information” the president is referring to.

In 1992, then-US President George H. W. Bush signed into law the John F Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act, compelling the US National Archives to publish documents surrounding Kennedy’s death within 25 years.

However, there was a get-out clause in the act which stated public disclosure could be delayed if it threatened “military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or conduct of foreign relations.”

A report by Politico Magazine, which cited Trump administration insiders, suggested the president could block some documents from seeing the light of day. A US government spokesperson reportedly told the magazine that the White House is working “to ensure the maximum amount of data can be released to the public”.

During the presidential election campaign last year, Trump alleged that the father of rival Republican candidate Ted Cruz had links to Kennedy’s supposed killer Lee Harvey Oswald. The accusation stemmed from an image printed on the front of the National Inquirer, which purported to show Rafael Cruz handing out pro-Cuba fliers alongside Oswald in 1963.

“His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being, you know, shot,” Trump alleged on Fox News. “Nobody even brings it up. They don’t even talk about that. That was reported, and nobody talks about it.”

Trump doubled down on the conspiracy in July 2016, saying that Cruz never denied his father met Oswald. Ted Cruz addressed the topic in May that year by saying that his father was also “secretly Elvis and Jimmy Hoffa is buried in his backyard.”

FBI Finds 2,800 Huma Govt Docs on Weiner Laptop, Most Likely Contains Classified Info




Home » Corruption, Crimes, North America » FBI Finds 2,800 Huma Govt Docs on Weiner Laptop, Most Likely Contains Classified Info













 






Judicial Watch revealed today that the U.S. Department of State admits it received 2,800 Huma Abedin work-related documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that were found on her estranged husband Anthony Weiner’s personal laptop. Abedin was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Weiner is a disgraced former congressman and New York mayoral candidate who recently plead guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor. Abedin kept a non-State.gov email account that she used repeatedly for government business on Hillary Clinton’s notorious email server(s).

The revelation was produced in a May 5, 2015, lawsuit Judicial Watch filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)). Judicial Watch sued after the State Department failed to respond to a March 18, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking: “All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-‘state.gov’ email address.”

In accordance with a court ordered production of documents, the State Department’s court filing states: “The State Department has identified approximately 2,800 work-related documents among the documents provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” By December 31, 2017, the State Department expects to complete its review and production of the FBI records. The government suggests some of the material may be “duplicative” of other records.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton had this to say about the new development:

“This is a disturbing development. Our experience with Abedin’s emails suggest these Weiner laptop documents will include classified and other sensitive materials. When will the Justice Department do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law?”

Fitton also tweeted that the FBI will release the material by the end of the year.

Classified Photos From NASA of Big Extraterrestrial Vehicles Taken By Astronauts & Robotic Probes

The picture above comes from, according to the lecture below, apollo 12. Of a craft that was several hundred feet in diameter.

“They published it, and they issued it in the summer of 1964, while I was there working in the war room. They titled it ‘An Assessment: An Evaluation of a Possible Military Threat to Allied Forces in Europe.’ . . . I was working in the war room one early morning . . . I’m sitting there nodding off, and this American Air Force full Colonel looked at me and he says, ‘Wake up.’ He went over to the vault . . . we kept classified documents in there . . .  the Colonol went over to the vault and pulled out this document and through it on my desk and he says ‘Read that, that’ll wake you up.’ Ladies and gentlemen my life changed. I opened the first page and I couldn’t put it down. . . . I was shocked, I was stunned, by the implications of what I read in that study. . . . The study briefly, and I have to briefly lay this out, the study simply concluded this: They concluded that the planet Earth and the human race had been under some kind of survey or observation going on for hundreds if not thousands of years. They concluded in 1964 that there were at least four different groups coming here, observing us, surveilling us, analyzing us, closely watching us — what we were up to, what we were doing. They concluded that there did not appear to be a military threat involved because the repeated demonstrations of incredibly advanced technology demonstrated to us that if they had been hostile or malevolent, there was absolutely nothing we could do. If they were evil in their intent and they were hostile toward us, it would have been over a long time ago.”

Above is an excerpt of a lecture given by Robert (Bob) Dean, a retired US Army Command Sergeant Major who served for 28 years. In the lecture below, he provides a wealth of mind-altering information that corroborates with what many other whistleblowers have shared.

The lecture was given in July 2009 at the European Exopolitics Summit, which took place in Barcelona and was filmed by Project Camelot.

Dean is one of hundreds, if not thousands, of people with verified credentials coming forward to share what they have experienced during their military careers. With regards to the statement above, former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer has also mentioned the same report that Dean refers to, stating in an interview with RT news that “they decided to do an investigation, and they investigated for three years, and they decided that, with absolute certainty, that four species, four different species, at least, have been visiting this plant for thousands of years.” He also mentions “there’s been a lot more activity in the last few decades, since we invented the atomic bomb.” (source)

— Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell (source)(source)(source)

The fact that hundreds of such people, many of whom hold high-ranking positions, have been speaking up about this topic for decades is fascinating. It’s pretty hard to believe that so many people with verified credentials would all lie about something that could so easily damage their careers.

Image of the infamous Phoenix Lights sighting.

Although there is no definitive way to prove to the ‘mainstream’ world that ET is real, we now have hundreds of thousands of documents from multiple countries putting to rest the question “Do UFOs exist?” We know they do from these documents, which show objects are tracked on radar, spotted by the pilots sent to intercept, and in some cases, simultaneously tracked on ground radar.

Information like this, particularly the fact that agencies are working to uncover the truth, shouldn’t really come as a surprise.

The CIA has a long history of putting resources toward studying this phenomenon, in fact, as well as investigating what other countries know about it as well. For example, another unclassified document outlines:

Scientists of the PRC and the Soviet Far East have begun joint study of UFO’s. The first meeting of ufologists of the two countries has ended in the small maritime townlet of Dalnegorsk. The Soviet and Chinese specialists on anomalous phenomena have mapped out a program for investigating incidents that are already known and have also arranged to directly exchange video and photographic materials on new similar phenomena. Dalnegorsk has not been chosen by chance as the place for such acquaintance. In the last few years the number of cases of visual observation of UFO’s has noticeably increased there. In just the last four years alone no less than 10 UFO’s have been recorded. Specialists link their heightened interest in places here with the variety and wealth of useful minerals in Maritime Kray. Similar, incidents have also occurred in mountainous regions in China whose climatic conditions and natural landscape resemble our own.

In many cases, these testimony are given by the people involved in the incident, the military personnel mentioned in the actual files.  For example, here is one dealing with an incident that took place over the Atlantic, and here is the witness testimony to match it from Graham Bethune, a retired Navy commander pilot.  You can read more about that story here.

Dean also had some choice words for NASA:

Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ’s sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we’re talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were ‘disruptive,’ ‘socially unacceptable,’ ‘politically unacceptable.’ I’ve become furious. I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience.

Listen to the full lecture below. Where you will see the photos.

Who’s Really in Control of Space?

This thing has gotten so highly-classified . . . it is just impossible to get anything on it. I have no idea who controls the flow of need-to-know because, frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business that I’ve never tried to make it to be my business since. I have been interested in this subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified.”

– Senator Barry Goldwater, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee (source)

According to Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of rocketry and astronautics, “flying saucers are real and . . . they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.”

If all of this information is true, it’s quite clear that “Never A Straight Answer” is indeed an appropriate name for NASA. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again — the United States has a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. The National Reconnaissance Office, too, was founded in 1960, but remained completely secret for 30 years.

The same is probably true for space affairs….

In the interest of a short read, and given that there is a long lecture presented within this article, I’m going to link to some other related articles that go into more detail regarding the secret space program, as well as the moon landing and film/footage from the moon, which Dean refers to above.

Rapists, Pedophiles, Murderers Access Classified US Information Daily

“I have rapists, pedophiles and people involved in child porn – I have all these things at the interim clearance level and I’m pulling their clearances on a weekly basis,” a senior Pentagon official said Wednesday.

With more than 700,000 individuals seeking security clearances to work in the federal government or as private contractors, the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB) started getting behind and decided to dish out interim clearances while the full reviews were pushed back.

While temporary credentials are far from ideal, “if we don’t do interim clearances, nothing gets done,” Defense Security Service Director Dan Payne said during a speech Wednesday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington.

The interim clearances are risky, though, even if they’re needed. “We are giving those people access to classified information with only the minimum amount of investigation,” he complained, noting that the process’ vulnerability highlighted the underlying problem behind the backlog of clearance cases: the timelines simply take too long.

Obtaining confidential clearance can take four to six months, while higher levels of clearance such as secret and top-secret can take 12 months or longer.

The Obama administration created NBIB following a major IT security breach at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) in which millions of government employees’ names, birthdays, addresses and even security clearance designations became visible to hackers. Following the intrusion, the administration tasked DoD with running clearance investigations instead of OPM.

In the ironies of all ironies, the National Background Investigation Bureau runs pretty paltry investigations on their interim hires. “On a weekly basis, I have murderers who have access to classified information,” Payne told the audience.

The Pentagon has granted approximately 100,000 individuals interim clearance credentials around the US, Payne said.

A career counterintelligence officer at the CIA, Payne clarified that Pentagon employees and private defense contractors may be granted interim clearance but employees for the nation’s intelligence services are not eligible for the temporary credential.

Dyatlov Pass remains Classified but few details emerge: Tourists died during tests of Neutron Weapons




Home » Disasters, Europe, History » Dyatlov Pass remains Classified but few details emerge: Tourists died during tests of Neutron Weapons













 






A mysterious object was discovered near the site, where tourists died when trying to cross the Dyatlov Pass. Amateur radio engineer and researcher of paranormal phenomena Valentin Degtyarev believes that the structure that was found on the site may have a connection with the tragedy that took place there in the winter of 1959.

It goes about a construction 25-30 meters long and 10-15 meters wide. The construction was found at a distance of ten kilometers from the site, when a group of tourists died in 1959. The construction, Degtyarev believes, could be a part of a bunker that had been built in the Ural mountains during the times of the Cold War.

The researcher assumes that the group of tourists could find themselves on the pass the day when neutron weapons were tested. This may explain the presence of radioactive substances on the clothes of one of the victims. The death of the tourists could be a reason, for which the tests were wrapped up. The underground building was blown up and mothballed. The upper part of the bunker is still visible on satellite images.

The Dyatlov Pass is considered to be one of the most mysterious areas of tourist routes in the Urals. In February 1959, nine skiers of a tourist club were killed near Mount Otorten under unclear circumstances. Igor Dyatlov was the leader of the group. The bodies that were subsequently found on the site shocked forensic experts: most of the people froze to death, whereas traces on the bodies of other victims indicated that they had died violent deaths.

The pass was named in memory of the tourist group led by Igor Dyatlov. Some researchers believe that the tourists died as a result of an explosion of a ballistic missile.

According to ex-governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Senator Eduard Rossel, the tragedy on the Dyatlov Pass still remains strictly classified information.

Experts warn robots are growing in consciousness and should be classified as an “invasive species”

(Natural News)
Should humanity become extinct in the immediate future, it won’t be by our own hands or through the wrath of nature. A number of experts has claimed that our demise shall be brought on by super-strong robots. What was once created to make our lives easier could very well “threaten our existence” in the span of a few years.

This grim warning comes from the experts featured in the two-episode documentary series “Hyper Evolution: Rise of the Robots”. Presented by teaching fellow at Anglia Ruskin University and evolutionary biologist Dr. Ben Garrod and University of Manchester electronics engineer Danielle George, the documentary aims to the answer the question whether or not automation could one day become our greatest enemy. Though according to Garrod himself, that could very well be the case.

“What concerns me is that the impact of robots will be so monumental, they could threaten humanity,” Garrod told DailyMail.co.uk. “We’ve evolved over hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years. These things are just bulldozing their way through. At what point have we got to stop? They’re like an invasive species.”

Garrod added that their classification as an “invasive species” was further bolstered by their increasing ability to make conscious decisions. “In the next few years, physically at least, they will be able to out-compete us in many of the things that we can do. But for me, the real problem isn’t if they move like us or even look like us. The real issue will come if they start to think like us,” he stated.

Many of the robots featured on the program hint towards this.

One such robot is Erica, who has been described as “the most beautiful and most human-like autonomous humanoid android in this world” by her “father”, Hiroshi Ishiguro. The robotics expert has gone on record to state that he aims to create a robot that can think and act independently. Erica is a move towards that direction. Though Erica is unable to move her arms and legs, she can answer questions about her ideal partner, tell jokes, and even sidestep around queries about her age. Ishiguro and Dylan F. Glas, Erica’s co-creator, hope to someday release Erica into out into the world and human society.

It’s no wonder then that Garrod isn’t alone in his opinions.

“The whole of our society, our law, our education, is based around consciousness, making conscious decisions, and if we show that actually that’s quite trivial and we reproduce it in an afternoon in a lab, then it could make you think ‘Well, how important is human life? Because it is conscious’,” said professor of cognitive robotics Owen Holland. “Ultimately the rewards will be positive but you have to be very, very careful. Socially it might be disruptive.”

Others have put out suggested measures to prevent the robotic takeover from becoming a reality. Just recently, experts hailing from the University of Oxford proposed equipping robots with recorders not unlike the black boxes on aircraft. These recorders would then capture the robots’ behaviors so that, in the event of a malfunction or an accident, the recorders would provide analysts with the information they need to determine what went wrong.

Although such a feature may cause robot-related accidents to dip in prevalence, it won’t exactly prevent automation from inflicting harm upon humans, whether unexpectedly or on purpose, experts said.(Related: First fatality of the robot apocalypse?
