Day Two – The Fourth Branch of Government, The Intelligence Branch

If we start with this interview between Tucker Carlson and Glenn Greenwald, we can see they get a lot of the foundation correct, but they misaligned the cornerstone.

When Barack Obama was installed in January 2009, the Democrats held a 60 seat majority in the U.S. Senate.  As the people behind the Obama installation began executing their longer-term plan {SEE DAY ONE}, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence was a tool to create the Intelligence Branch; it was not an unintentional series of events.

When Obama was installed, Dianne Feinstein was the Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), and Democrat operative Dan Jones was her lead staffer.  Feinstein was completely controlled by those around her including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.  The CIA was in the process of turning over personnel following the Bush era, and as a result of a massive multi-year narrative of diminished credibility (Iraq WMD), a deep purge was underway. Obama/Holder were in the process of shifting intelligence alignment and the intensely political Democrat Leader Harry Reid was a key participant.

WATCH the Interview:

Carlson notes his conversation with the congressional intelligence committee member was two years ago.  The discussion was with Trey Gowdy, and the conversation surrounded Gowdy’s decision to leave congress and the opportunity presented by Fox News to become a contracted contributor.

TC and GG say that congress is the solution to eliminating the fourth and superseding branch of government, The Intelligence Branch.  This is an exercise in futility because the legislative branch, specifically the SSCI, facilitated the creation of the Intelligence Branch.  The SSCI cannot put the genie they created back in the bottle without admitting they are corrupt; and the background story of their corruption is way too intense to be exposed now.

Every member of the SSCI is compromised in some controlling manner.  Those Senators who disliked the control over them; specifically disliked because the risk of sunlight was tenuous and, well, possible; have either left completely or stepped down from the committee.  None of the SSCI members past or present would ever contemplate saying openly what their tenure involved.

[Note: You might remember when Vice-chairman Mark Warner’s text messages surfaced there was a controlled Republican SSCI member who came to his defense in February of 2018.  It was not accidental that exact senator later became the chair of the SSCI himself.  That republican senator is Marco Rubio, now vice-chair since the Senate re-flipped back to the optics of Democrat control in 2021.]

All of President Obama’s 2009 intelligence appointments required confirmation from the Senate.  The nominees had to first pass through the Democrat controlled SSCI, and then to a full senate vote where Democrats held a 60 vote majority.  Essentially, Obama got everyone he wanted in place easily.  Rahm Emmanuel was Obama’s chief of staff and Valerie Jarrett was senior advisor.

Tim Geithner was Treasury Secretary in 2010 when the joint DOJ/FBI and IRS operation to target the Tea Party took place after the mid-term “shellacking” caused by Obamacare backlash.  Mitch McConnell was minority leader in the Senate but supported the targeting of the Tea Party as his senate colleagues were getting primaried by an angry and effective grassroots campaign.  McConnell’s friend Senator Bob Bennett getting beaten in Utah was the final straw.

Dirty Harry and Mitch McConell saw the TEA Party through the same prism.  The TEA Party took Kennedy’s seat in Massachusetts (Scott Brown); Sharon Angle was about to take out Harry Reid in Nevada; Arlen Spector was taken down in Pennsylvania; Senator Robert Byrd died; Senator Lisa Murkowski lost her primary to Joe Miller in Alaska; McConnell’s nominee Mike Castle lost to Christine O’Donnell in Delaware; Rand Paul won in Kentucky.  This is the background. The peasants were revolting…. and visibly angry Mitch McConnell desperately made a deal with the devil to protect himself.

In many ways the TEA Party movement was/is very similar to the MAGA movement. The difference in 2010 was the absence of a head of the movement, in 2015 Donald Trump became that head figure who benefited from the TEA Party energy.  Trump came into office in 2017 with the same congressional opposition as the successful TEA Party candidates in 2011.

Republicans took control of the Senate following the 2014 mid-terms.  Republicans took control of the SSCI in January 2015.  Senator Richard Burr became chairman of the SSCI and Dianne Feinstein shifted to Vice-Chair.  Dirty Harry Reid left the Senate and Mitch McConnell took power again.

Republicans were in control of the SSCI in 2015 when the intelligence branch operation against candidate Donald Trump was underway.   [Feinstein’s staffer, Dan Jones, left the SSCI so he could act as a liaison and political operative between private-sector efforts (Fusion GPS, Chris Steele) and the SSCI.]   The SSCI was a participant in that Fusion-GPS/Chris Steele operation, and as a direct consequence Republicans were inherently tied to the problem with President Trump taking office in January of 2017.  Indiana Republican Senator Dan Coats was a member of the SSCI.

Bottom line…. the GOP was just as much at risk as their Democrat counterparts.

When Trump unexpectedly won the 2016 election, the SSCI was shocked more than most.  They knew countermeasures would need to be deployed to protect themselves from any exposure of their intelligence conduct.  Dianne Feinstein stepped down, and Senator Mark Warner was elevated to Vice-Chairman.

Indiana’s own Mike Pence, now Vice-President, recommended fellow Hosier, SSCI Senator Dan Coats, to become President Trump’s Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).  [Apply hindsight here]

♦To give an idea of the Intelligence Branch power dynamic, remind yourself how House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), Chairman Devin Nunes, tried to get access to the DOJ/FBI records of the FISA application used against the Trump campaign via Carter Page.  Remember Nunes only saw a portion of the FISA trail from his review of a Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) previously given to President Obama.  Nunes had to review the PDB at the White House SCIF due to compartmented intelligence.

Remember the massive stonewalling and blocking of the DOJ/FBI toward Nunes?  Remember the back and forth battle over declassification surrounding the Nunes memo?  Remember, after Nunes went directly to House Speaker Paul Ryan for help (didn’t get any), the DOJ only permitted two members from each party within the HPSCI to review the documents, and only at the DOJ offices of main justice?

Contrast that amount of HPSCI railroading and blocking by intelligence operatives in the DOJ, DOJ-NSD and FBI, with the simple request by SSCI Vice Chairman Mark Warner asking to see the FISA application and immediately a copy being delivered to him on March 17th 2017.

Can you see which intelligence committee is aligned with the deepest part of the deep state?

Oh, how quickly we forget:

The contrast of ideological alignment between the HPSCI, SSCI and Intelligence Branch is crystal clear when viewed through the prism of cooperation.  You can see which legislative committee holds the power and support of the Intelligence Branch.   The SSCI facilitates the corrupt existence of the IC Branch, so the IC Branch only cooperates with the SSCI.  It really is that simple.

♦ The Intelligence Branch carefully selects its own members by controlling how security clearances are investigated and allowed (FBI).  The Intelligence Branch also uses compartmentalization of intelligence as a way to keep each agency, and each downstream branch of government (executive, legislative and judicial), at arms length as a method to stop anyone from seeing the larger picture of their activity.  I call this the “silo effect“, and it is done by design. I have looked the at stunned faces when I present silo product from one agency to the silo customers of another.

Through the advise and consent rules, the Intelligence Branch uses the SSCI to keep out people they consider dangerous to their ongoing operations.  Any appointee to the intelligence community must first pass through the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, before they get a full Senate vote.  If the SSCI rejects the candidate, they simply refuse to take up the nomination.  The president is then blocked from that appointment.  This is what happened with President Trump over-and-over again.

♦ Additionally, the Intelligence Branch protects itself, and its facilitating allies through the formal classification process.  The Intelligence Branch gets to decide unilaterally what information will be released and what information will be kept secret.  There is no entity outside the Intelligence Branch, and yes that includes the President of the United States, who can supersede the classification authority of the Intelligence Branch.  {Go Deep} and {Go Deep}  This is something 99.9% of the people on our side get totally and frustratingly wrong.

No-one can declassify, or make public, anything the Intelligence Branch will not agree to.  Doubt this?… ask Ric Grenell, John Ratcliffe, or even President Trump himself.

♦ The classification process is determined inside the Intelligence Branch, all by themselves.  They get to choose what rank of classification exists on any work-product they create; and they get to decide what the classification status is of any work-product that is created by anyone else.  The Intelligence Branch has full control over what is considered classified information and what is not.  The Intelligence Branch defines what is a “national security interest” and what is not.  A great technique for hiding fingerprints of corrupt and illegal activity.

[For familiar reference see the redactions to Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages. The Intelligence Branch does all redactions.]

♦ Similarly the declassification process is a request by an agency, even a traditionally superior agency like the President of the United States, to the Intelligence Branch asking for them to release the information.  The Intelligence Branch again holds full unilateral control.  If the head of the CIA refuses to comply with the declassification instruction of the President, what can the president do except fire him/her?   {Again, GO DEEP How does the President replace the non-compliant cabinet member?… They have to go through the SSCI confirmation… See the problem?

Yes there are ways to break up the Intelligence Branch, but they do not start with any congressional effort.  As you can see above, the process is the flaw – not the solution. TC and GG have their emphasis on the wrong syllable.  Their cornerstone is false.

For their own self-preservation; the Intelligence Branch has been interfering in our elections for years.  The cornerstone to tear this apart begins with STATE LEVEL election reform that blocks the legislative branch from coordinating with the intelligence branch.

Our elections have been usurped by the Intelligence Branch.   Start with honest elections and we will see just how much Democrat AND Republican corruption is dependent on manipulated election results.  Start at the state level. Start there…. everything else is downstream.

More soon...
