CONFIRMED: THE NSA SPIED ON TUCKER CARLSON

bidenskull2.gif

Tucker Carlson reported that a whistleblower inside the government alerted him that his emails were being read by the NSA, and proved it to him by reading from them.

He then said the NSA planned to leak his emails to the media, to get his show "taken off the air." That might be an ambitious goal.

Let's say that is a colloquial, inexact statement of their intent.

Let's say maybe that they just planned to leak the emails to discredit him.

An insistent critic who threatens their power and threatens the Ruling Class whom they serve.

Today Tucker Carlson reported that a journalist that he likes and trust told him that he had received the leaked emails.

Guess what just happened? Jonathan Swann at Axios just "reported" on the contents of the surveilled emails.

THE EMAILS WERE LEAKED TO THE PRESS, JUST AS TUCKER CARLSON'S WHISTLEBLOWER TOLD THEM THEY WOULD BE.

The emails might have been surveilled "incidentally," because Tucker was reaching out to US-based Russia representatives to get an interview with Putin.

You know -- what journalists used to do.

But there is no innocent explanation for why Tucker Carlson's name is included in the emails. Remember, in cases of so-called "incidental" collection of US citizens' data, you're supposed to "minimize" exposure of the person who was spied on by redacting him name and calling him something like US CITIZEN NO. 1.

This is also called "masking."

Here, though, Tucker Carlson's name is de-anonymized -- "unmasked," as Obama officials preferred it -- and left right on the supposedly "incidentally" collected emails.

No effort is made to keep his identity anonymous. Quite the opposite.

Remember, even when someone's emails are "incidentally" collected, their privacy has still been breached, and their constitutional rights have still been violated.

"Minimization"/anonymization/masking is supposed to be a compromise that mitigates the effects of that breach of constitutional rights.

And yet here's the Deep State again, doing what they did to Trump -- just saying "Fuck minimization" and deliberately engaging in spying on a US citizen with no efforts made to protect that citizen.


Finally:

There is also no innocent explanation as to why the emails were leaked to the press, exactly as Tucker's whistleblower told them the NSA planned to leak them.

Even if you "incidentally" spy on a US citizen, and even if you "inadvertently" "forget" to minimize his name and redact his identity -- how can there be any innocent explanation for then leaking the emails to the media?

You cannot claim that it was a mistake. Tucker's whistleblower already told him this was the premeditated scheme of the NSA. They schemed with malice aforethought to do just this.

And now they've done it.

And now National Review will again deny that this has happened, and then say, "Well, if it has happened, I'm sure the Deep State had good reasons to do it."

Just as they said about the FBI spying on Trump -- after having ridiculed the notion of it, right alongside their leftwing Democrat media buddies.

Here was the liberal blog National Review just two days ago, ridiculing the idea that the order to spy on Tucker Carlson could have possibly come from the top:

Against this backdrop of real problems, the notion that NSA director general Paul Nakasone is taking time out of his day to sit around a conference table with his top officers and gravely order, "Launch Operation Unraveling Bowtie!" is implausible.

Say guys -- didn't you also ridicule the idea that Trump was being spied on?

And say: Didn't the order to spy on Trump come directly from James Comey and Andy McCabe? The absolute top of the FBI, in fact?

Not rogue middle-level operatives. Not "some folks from the Cincinnati office."

No, the plan was hatched at the very top of the FBI and DOJ.

And didn't all of Obama's minions -- who are of course running the Biden Administration -- all resort to lawyerly and plainly false denials of their intent to spy on Trump?

Do you guys... remember this at all?

Boy you guys just... never quite lose your absolute certitude about things, no matter how many times your absolute certitude is proven completely unfounded, do you?

Maybe you should, I don't know, show a little more humility about what you know and what you definitely do not know, huh?

Maybe, especially, given your appallingly poor track records for the past six years?

I will say this for you guys: You all certainly seem to possess a Millennial's Level of Absolute Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence, no matter what facts may arise to undermine it! (I expect you absorb that gift from all the time you spend on Twitter.)

Is there literally anything your Deep State Friends can do that can shake your unshakable confidence in their absolute Pope-like rectitude, if only by a few degrees?

Or at least lighten up on the mocking tone? Maybe phrase it with a caveat that admits past errors, like, "I had trouble believing that the FBI and Clapper's DNI would spy on Trump, but it turned out they had. Still, I'm having trouble believing the NSA would risk so much here."

I feel a little bad calling out people I used to respect like this, but maybe if you just acknowledged your own errors every once in a while -- you know, like you constantly scolded Trump for not doing -- then other people would not be forced to ungracefully point your long history of errors out to you.

And now Andy McCarthy will vouch for all 30,000 members of the NSA, and re-vouch for all 100,000 members of the DOJ. All a bunch of straight-shooters and devoted patriots in the cause of Justice and America.

All this preening about what he knows about organizations he hasn't worked for in decades just to show off that he still "knows people" and still has clout in DC.

One More Thing: For the Deep State Defenders in Conservative, Inc., let me point out to you that it is the position of the "Biden" Administration that "right-wing extremism" is the number one threat to National Security that we face."

They have therefore very clearly laid out the predicate as to why they would be justified in doing anything they could to stop "right wing extremism" and further "insurrection."

Anything. As long as it saves just one life.

So based on that: Why do you keep claiming it's "implausible" that they would act in accordance with their own publicly-stated assessment of who the "real terrorists" are?

They have re-oriented the national security apparatus to claim that dissident conservatives are literally the greatest threat to the Republic.

Why would they claim that, and then not act upon that belief?

By the way:

Among those who "unmasked" the names of Americans "incidentally" spied upon?

One Joseph Robinette Biden, the Vice President under the spy-happy authoritarian socialist Obama.

Also remember: Tucker Carlson reported a lot on the Obama/Biden administration's extreme "unmasking" of political opponents.

And now here he is himself, "incidentally" spied on, but then deliberately unmasked.

So what's the big deal?

But Trump calling the press names, obviously with complete justification, was an "attack on the press". A threat to our open society.

65 Does McCarthy still bring his sad act to publication anywhere, still? I mean, literally doing what ace mocks him (rightly) for having done for years now?

It was far from an original or insightful point, but McCarthy had one good turn of phrase, in regard to the SCOTUS morphing into a legislature (well, to be fair and pertinent, the "liberal" court members). "They don't judge, they vote".

That, and the Islamoterrorist prosecution and public education, are about all Andy seems to have. Otherwise, the dimmest of hacks at the very time his treasured institutions have essentially unraveled.

Plus, could be wrong, but didn't we keep the Afghans with mostly Soviet-design platforms - AKs, etc? As we did with the Iraqis. Would think most of the looting would be supplies and heavy equipment left behind, more than weaponry.

189 They are trying to get Tucker fired/sidelined from FOX aren't they; he is unpalatable to Murdock's spawn. His contract is most likely iron clad, but there might be paragraphs that they are trying to exploit. They might have come to Murdock's people and said "fire him". They might have said "give me something". So there you go.

You ought to see the junkyard of abandoned equipment left around Bagram airbase. The Daily Mail had pictures.

All the Afghan "forces", the ones we had trained, happily surrendered to the Taliban, shaking hands with them, and turned over all their American supplied weapons.

That Bagram junkyard is a metaphor for America.

Guy I work with was in the sandbox, and his role was basically to bribe the Taliban with pallets of cash. That is what most of "the surge" was -- paying people to stop killing us temporarily. There was never a path to make that place better, and all we were doing was whistling dixie

244 I'm more machine than human with this stuff, so I don't care about Trump appearing to be more self-promoting than would be optimal, I only evaluate him vs. Heavy D in terms of their likely utility in achieving key objectives.

Not sure Heavy D actually is equal to or greater than Trump in terms of grit and determination, or that he gets or is as committed to the vital economic agenda (leaving aside fiscal, where Trump was a disaster, though was not the driver of said disaster). Not saying he isn't or doesn't, it's just hard to know. Also - Trump's traction with Dem and other demos - does Heavy D have that?

No answers, just questions. All against a backdrop that in 3+ years, hard to say what the biggest priorities will actually be. Or whether it will matter much who's president.

I knew Trump was a self-centered guy going in, but it really rankles me that he's not even putting on a show that he's acting in my interest. He's just dropping that and being pretty upfront that he sees the Trump Movement as about serving Trump.

I'm 50/50 on that. Considering the media has censored and distorted him since forever and more now that he was overthrown, and that they are trying to kangaroo court him and destroy him, I kind of cut him some slack.

Still, I get your drift.

Guessing that Trump may do what the Communists intended to do when they stole the election: run, win, and hand it over to DeSantis at the two year mark so Ronnie D can do 10 years as POTUS.

Yep, there's no way they go over all that info they have. The entire federal employee pool would've be enough people to go over all that shit.

They have these YUGE supercomputers that process it, looking for interesting stuff to flag to the humans in control. And the capacity there is getting better and better.

But, if they decide to zero in on you, it's child play for them to get *every damn piece of electronic/telephone communication* you've done over the last X years.

Thanks to Snowden, and other reports over the years, the NSA has mirroring taps at all the major communication hubs. Everywhere. They're plugged right in, and are mirroring all traffic to their own systems, where they are stored and processed.

281 alex the mechanisms and authorities (abused, or not abused) involved here all pre-date the Patriot Act, pretty sure. It is routine around here for people to lament how FISA was put in after 9/11, except that it was put in under Jimmy Carter. Not as familiar with the specific uses/abuses here, but I don't think the incredibly stupidly named Patriot Act is in play, or doesn't need to be.

Yes, but that doesn't let me snark.

Someone on the twats pointed out that there's usually around a 20 year cycle between an organization being caught doing something, cleaning up its act, and then being corrupt again.

Church commission to Clintons is about 20 years.

Just sayin'.

These guys dug a tunnel under Heidelburgstrasse with the intention of reaching a house basement and getting people out. Well the tunnel came up in the garden instead. Guy has to sneak out the tunnel and knock on the door to find the house is full of Stasi. He gets nabbed and put in prison while the other tunnelers escaped back to West Berlin.

After the Berlin Wall fell the last secret of this tunnel was revealed. The Stasi had planned to detonate the tunnel with the diggers in it. But somehow the fuse for the bomb had gotten cut. To this day no one knows who cut the fuse.

311 "THE WHOLE PARTY IS GARBAGE" - ace

I'm obviously not the one to debate that particular contention (!), but in this particular case I at least see some potential non-insane tactical considerations.

The Jan. 6 event has been ludicrously exaggerated and mischaracterized, to include the ridiculous slander that Trump or his actual supporters, who'd never engaged in or condoned violence of any kind, "incited" it. But enough of the Reichstag Fire mythos has soaked into the masses - and the entirety of the now North Korea-like "press" - that embracing even the grandmas and others charged with trivial violations would provide a cudgel for the enemy to bash Trump and the GOP.

Yeah yeah I know they don't *need* anything, they make up s**t all day, but in this case the template is already fixed, and this would be girls' gym to slander anyone making a point about, you know, *OUTRAGEOUS ABANDONMENT OF DUE PROCESS RIGHTS AND COMMON SENSE* in this case.

No, I think that of course the intelligence agencies will do this and that those that thought the Patriot Act would be rails on what the intelligence agencies could do were na´ve. Those of us who screamed about it at the time were in the give an inch and they'll take 10 miles and claim to be righteous to do so.

This is because I've met people. The desire by the State to have panopticon access is universal. For heaven's sake, Bentham came up with the idea of the panopticon prison in the 1791. This isn't about party, this is about people. And people? Not so much the best.

338 alex your snark permit here is, I believe, life-time, and is the coveted "all-area-access" variety.

And ace added what I didn't to my typically verbose comment - that whatever the particulars of the laws involved, such laws do not appear to be much of a constraint any more.

Remember Adm. Rogers shut down one of the most egregious and well-understood sorts of abuse, the 702 "about" queries, even before Trump was elected. And the FISC pretended to be upset about the abuses, did a 99-page report on it.

340 >>>If DeSantis, unbelievably, is president, he will suffer the same head winds as Trump did.

not quite. Although I credited Trump as a cagey, cynical guy -- cynical enough to see the games the Deep State was playing -- he continued to seem very perplexed that "allies" like Reince Pribus, Lindsay Graham, Mitch McConnell, etc., continued to thwart him.

He just never seemed to grasp how truly corrupt DC is, despite having dealt with corrupt local officials and, I imagine, mafioso "labor leaders."

All that still left him unprepared and flat-footed dealing with The Swamp.

Here's a huge advantage DeSantis has: he has a group of aides and officials who support him and who he trusts. He won't blunder into DC asking Reince Pribus who he can trust.

I would support either one with every fiber of my being.

Like it or not, Trump uniquely has an ability to attract all kinds of people. Yes, he's fundraising ad nauseam. I'm sick of it too. Yes, he made missteps in office. Yes, he makes the demons in the D party spit blood. But I will never argue that he doesn't understand what we're up against and I will never argue he's "in it for himself." He's in it for America and Americans. I don't doubt him one bit. I trust him to not sell me out. Can't say that very often. Or hardly at all. I would love to see him team up with DeSantis. It would be glorious.

355 Regarding who runs in 2024, that is when a decision needs to be made, otherwise, Trump still is a lightning rod in a way that DeSantis cannot be while governing Florida and can still flame the GOPe like McConnell and McCarthy.

The problem with DeSantis is that it takes gobs of money to run for president even without the Team Blue plutocrats financing whoever the Dems have up with fed bux. We know that the donor/strategists of team GOPe want things that the base absolutely hates (amnesty for one) and sound trade, defense, and economic policy instead of globalism and war everywhere.

Walker did a stellar job in WI fighting the good fight and was promptly turned into mush when he ran for president because of donor bucks and GOPe campaign team. The only way out for DeSantis from my viewpoint is that he is really going to have to go truly grass roots in a way that even Trump could not do. This means heavy reliance on campaign volunteers instead of the normal media/donor/strategists from Team GOPe.

Not saying Heavy D doesn't, but seems at least a bit doubtful.

Anyway, not sure "younger" actually matters when talking about Trump, whose energy level as prez was so off the charts that the Secret Service had to change their work scheduling.

That's not a slam on DeSantis or on Trump. It's that nearly all of the stuff that DeSantis is doing is signing legislation, not issuing executive orders because the asshats who assured us all we needed was 3/3 of everything and then boy howdy would bills be passed aren't stabbed him in the dick.

Not that I'm bitter.

The other problem I have with this line of attack is that the NeverTrumpers are going to push hard for DeSantis over Trump, and once Trump is out of the running, they will drop DeSantis to promote their RINO.

I am NOT saying that is what's happening here, but I expect it down the road and am therefore suspicious of any push to replace Trump with DeSantis.

And I like DeSantis. A lot. But we are getting excited over Chris Christy and Scott Walker al over again.

He's not Trump so he won't repeat his mistakes.
He's younger and has more energy, and IMHO is at least as aggressive.
He has actual political experience and most likely knows best how to massage and/or threaten people.
When the press a/k/a DNC try to pin all of PDT's problems on him, he can say truthfully, "that's Trump not me."

486 "Cruz was set to present his case on Jan 6 on why he voted not to confirm the electors. The rally and Capitol incursion put the kabash on that."

Actually, McConnell put a "kabash" on that. But you're on a roll.

It has to be the most infuriating habit from people who would desperately want you to think they are "thought leaders" - but when confronted with complex or complicated issues where solutions aren't easy or require some sort of brave confrontation of fact, its clown nose on...honk! Honk!

Everyone at NR thinks he's Jon Stewart now....

489 "He's a Bushie, and not even a "severe" conservative like Pierre Delecto. He won't even say Trump's name. And yet, he is called a far-right wing extremist like Trump."

I find that both funny and sad.

Funny, because he really thinks he won't be slimed as a radical if he doesn't say radical things. What's that saying about dying a thousand deaths? He will self-censor AND still be called radical

Sad, because he demonstrated a lack of character that's a tell - first time MSNBC calls him a racist, he will surrender.

490 "Trump, if he somehow takes office again, is a lame duck on day 1. At least as things stand now. Unless something changes between now and then. At the very least folks who prefer Trump again are going to need an argument for that."

1) I don't agree with the premise

2) if he is a lame duck, so is anyone else we nominate to take on the Establishment Party (E), including DeSantis.

491 Well, and the most appalling thing - they do this, get caught, then reluctantly agree to investigate, find the perpetrator, and let him off with a warning.

You know, like the lawyer who falsified documents to the FISA court in order to get a court to sign off on spying on Carter Page and by extension president Trump. he received a one year suspension of his law license, and 400 hours of community service. That's IT. His bullshit launched a multi year, multimillion $ investigation, almost got Trump impeached, and was national disaster. But he meant well.

496 Cuck Inc., believes the State can do no wrong, because it has been perfected through the agency of straight shooting upright American citizens who have nothing but the best interests of their countrymen at heart.

In other words, they worship at the foot of Moloch by another name.

No, they don't believe that, that is their cover story.

They know how utterly corrupt the tri-letters are, and want to be on their side and part of it.

499 Donald Trump has Jewish grandchildren. And he sued the city of Palm Springs for discrimination because his club allowed Jews and Blacks to join. And they tarred him as a racist and more Hitler than Hitler.
Posted by: buzzion at July 07, 2021 06:55 PM (vMCab)

They say that about every R with power. They say they are stupid too, every one. Just tell the groups on the plantation that they are "other" - intellectuals hate dummies, Jews fear Hitler II, blacks hate racists.

I read a lot of history of Late Republican Roman history, and the entrenched elite had the same playbook for every reformer. Say he wants to be king, to alienate Senators, Say he wants to cancel loans to alienate rich equestrians, then say he wants to burn the city down to alienate the urban poor.

Then they usually set up a gang of street hoodlums to find the guy, his friends, and a few hundred passersby and beat them all to death.

500 The social compact has been broken.

The left knew Obama and Biden broke the law and spied on everyone. They knew Biden abused his powers in every way imaginable. They knew he sold his office. And they knew he staged what was little short of a coup attempt against his successor.

Yet they elected him specifically. There is nothing that says 49% of the population has to play by the rules while the other 51% oppresses them and is above the law.

So you are saying I should pack my toothbrush on my way to Gitmo. Fair enough. This administration is doing things I have never seen - doubt me?, ask those locked up in jail, essentially, for trespassing at the Capitol.

I am an American citizen. It is my inalienable right to criticize the government. My criticism will cease when it stops being an enemy.
