The Establishment's Response to Trump's Threat to Political Corruption by Obama Admin (Part II) | Truth Over News

In a recent episode, we discussed part one of the establishment's sudden response to Trump's unexpected presidency in January 2017. Today, we run through part two of the timeline as it simply could not be encompassed in one show. As we noted previously, the hard reality is that the Intelligence Community, the Obama administration, and the political establishment never expected Trump to win. And when he did win, the intelligence community was suddenly faced with a very real problem. How do they cover up their actions? Their answer was to set out to destroy Trump's presidency. Or at least fatally hobble, or even cripple, the new Trump administration. As we stated in our previous show, the timeline of the establishment's actions in the first few months of 2017 tells the story of an establishment response to the very real threat that the young Trump administration presented to the long-standing, and corrupt, political structure of our nation. By way of quick recap, events were set in motion during a Jan. 5 meeting in Obama's office that included FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Vice President Joe Biden, and national security adviser rSusan Rice. Comey's first action was to tell Congress on Jan. 10, 2017, that he could neither confirm nor deny an investigation into Trump—despite privately telling Trump that he was not under investigation. But it was Jan. 12 that marked some of the most crucial events that would shape things to come. ⭕️Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV

Today's show rundown: Today we have brought our friend Jeff Danik back on. He is a 28 year veteran of the FBI (see bio below). Jeff was in a supervisory role in Palm Beach Florida - where he is sitting today is about a mile away from Mar-a-Lago itself. Jeff is an FBI badass - Chuck Woolery on the other hand is feared by fish everywhere. Why didn't Mar-a-Lago get raided by the Palm Beach FBI - instead of bringing all DC FBI? Federal Search warrants for the most part - have to be issued by a federal judge in the district where the property to be searched is located. August 5th was when this case first popped. Was the DOJ working with the magistrate - did they give some other pre-trial solution? There didn't seem to be any pre trial approach to the judge for contact on this case besides just giving them the affidavit. Dozens of news media personnel companies trying to get things unsealed. The men and women in law enforcement deal with lots of people who are reprobates, uninformed, ticked off people. It's easy to flex your muscles and be the authoritarian tough guy. It is far harder to be empathetic and gain their trust - to get to the guts of the real issue. That said, what is making people so angry about this Mar-a-Lag raid? It has a lot to do with the arrogance of the legal professions. We keep being told we can NOT question our Government. You can not shine a light on anything they are doing now days, and people are getting angry about it. What can we do now? Chuck says it is up to us to set it straight. What specific action needs to be taken though. Thats what we need to focus on. We need to start holding people responsible for their actions. Why did Merrick Garland not trust the office down in Palm Beach County. https://daniksolutions.com/ An FBI leader, whose diverse twenty-eight-year career, with significant experience across all FBI Program lines, distinguishes him from his peers. White Collar Crime: Having been a CPA with Big Four experience, after joining the FBI I became a recognized expert in investigating complex financial crimes across all FBI programs especially banking and stock/securities fraud, money laundering, government fraud, public corruption, and health care. Violent Crime: As a violent crime investigator, he indicted suspects in bank robberies, multinational/gang drug cases, attempted murder cases, major theft, kidnapping and extortion cases and successfully led the hunt for fugitives. Terrorism: As a terrorism agent, investigated numerous terror organizations worldwide and as an FBI terrorism supervisor, was part of a small team that designed the gold standard online terrorism threat tracking tool used by all U.S. Intelligence Community partners. Overseas deployments: Served overseas in lengthy key assignments in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Ethiopia (Horn of Africa) where he was the primary contact between those countries and the FBI. Danik also was the primary recruiter for the FBI's prestigious National Academy to obtain students from these countries. Instructing: I have extensive teaching credentials having been certified as a General Police Instructor, and International Police Instructor. I have conducted training on behalf of the FBI in Moscow and Chelyabinsk Russia, Botswana Africa, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Skopje, Macedonia, Rome, Italy and several cities throughout the United States.

Now, let’s get to the news, starting with Dr. Anthony Fauci! https://www.theepochtimes.com/fauci-reveals-exactly-when-hes-leaving-the-federal-government_4604550.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Fauci Reveals Exactly When He’s Leaving the Federal Government White House COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci revealed that after about five decades in the federal government, he’s planning on leaving his position by the end of President Joe Biden’s term. “We’re in a pattern now. If somebody says, ‘You’ll leave when we don’t have COVID anymore,’ then I will be 105. I think we’re going to be living with this,” Fauci, 81, told Politico in an interview published on Monday morning in confirming he’s retiring at the end of Biden’s term in office, which is Jan. 21, 2025. Fauci has been the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984. During the COVID-19, he became a household name when he became the face of the federal government’s COVID-19 pandemic response, often generating criticism from Republicans and conservatives about his generally dire predictions about the pandemic. Of his relationship with former President Donald Trump, Fauci said that “we developed an interesting relationship … two guys from New York, different in their opinions and their ideology, but still, two guys who grew up in the same environments of this city. I think that we are related to each other in that regard.” And if Republicans win back either the House or Senate in 2022, Fauci noted that he will likely be investigated by GOP lawmakers. But he claimed that regarding those investigations, “I don’t make that a consideration in my career decision.” However, Fauci has faced public questions from Republicans in Congress about his agency having given funding to third-party groups to carry out research in China. COVID-19, caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, emerged in Wuhan, China, and a significant number of U.S. intelligence officials last year released a report suggesting the virus may be tied to the top-level Wuhan Institute of Virology. Last month, amid questions from Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Fauci admitted that he is not able to halt federal funding from being doled out to researchers in China. “The NIH [National Institutes of Health] is still funding research in China, at least $8 million since 2020,” Marshall said. “In the Intelligence Community’s 2022 Annual Threat Assessment, the Chinese Communist Party is presented as one of the top threats to the United States, along with Russia, Iran, Syria, and North Korea. To my knowledge, only China is receiving U.S. research dollars.” Later, he asked Fauci, “When will you as director of NIAID stop funding research in China?” Federal health agencies, Fauci said in response, “had very productive peer-reviewed highly regarded research projects with our Chinese colleagues that have led to some major advances in biomedical research.” “We obviously need to be careful and make sure that when we do fund them we have the proper peer review and we go through all the established guidelines,” he also said. https://dailycaller.com/2022/07/17/shameful-biden-admin-sold-6-million-barrels-strategic-oil-reserves-china/ Biden Admin Has Sold Nearly 6 Million Barrels Of Strategic Oil Reserves To China The Biden administration sold nearly six million barrels of oil from its Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) since July 2021 to a Chinese state-run energy firm, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation review of Department of Energy (DOE) data. From July 2021 until the end of June 2022, Biden’s energy department auctioned off 5.9 million barrels of strategic reserve oil to Unipec, the trading division of the Chinese state-owned Sinopec, in an effort to increase the supply of oil globally and drive down fuel costs in the U.S. that were exacerbated by the war in Ukraine and Biden’s climate policies. SPR oil is sold to the highest bidder, and some of the businesses entitled to make bids are American subsidiaries of foreign corporations like Unipec The DOE sold four million barrels to Unipec in the fall of 2021, almost six months before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, making over $252 million from the sale, according to the FY22 Emergency Drawdown No. 2 Successful Awards Report. Each barrel was sold on average for roughly $63, or over eight dollars less than the average price of oil per barrel that month. “I think it takes a bad policy and makes it worse,” Ben Lieberman, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. In July 2022 the DOE sold 950,000 barrels to Unipec for roughly $113 million, according to the FY22 Emergency Drawdown No. 3A Successful Awards Report. While the Biden administration claimed the sales will help the U.S. fight “Putin’s price hike,” Unipec is still buying large quantities of Russian oil, according to Bloomberg. “It’s helping out a bit, but it’s still a very bad policy,” Lieberman told the DCNF. “The fact that we’re using the Strategic Petroleum Reserve rather than drilling offshore or getting more oil to the United States through the Keystone XL pipeline, the fact that we’re not doing these things is really pretty shameful.” In April, the DOE also sold 950,000 barrels to Unipec, according to a DOE report. “The Strategic Petroleum Reserve never really was a substitute for that and now to hear that this oil is going to China is problematic because it undercuts their rationale even more,” said Lieberman. “Biden’s policy just shows that he’s not putting American consumers and the American economy first or second or even third.” The DOE, the White House and Sinopec did not respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

In total, Congress sanctioned $58.55 billion in additional funds, according to the report. This includes $25.70 billion for operations and maintenance, $17.67 billion for procurement, $9.89 billion for research, development, test, and evaluation, $4.32 billion for military construction, and $947 million for military personnel. The DOD initially had a base budget appropriation of $742.3 billion for fiscal 2022. As such, the extra $58.55 billion represents an almost 8 percent increase from the base budget. The Pentagon did not put in a request for any of the programs funded with the extra $58.55 billion. These programs are not even in the so-called unfunded priorities lists—made up of items not included in the budget but considered critical—that departments and officers send to Congress annually. For instance, roughly $4 billion was granted for half a dozen ships that were not on the unfunded priorities list. Similarly, the Navy received $900 million for a dozen Super Hornet jets, the Air National Guard got $1.8 billion to purchase 16 C-130J transport planes, and $460 million was granted for developing advanced jet engines. Over $2 billion in extra funds was appropriated for classified programs. The $58.55 billion calculation only takes into account individual additions totaling $20 million or more. Since there are usually many spending hikes in the single-digit millions, the total actual excess funding will likely be higher. In an email to Roll Call, Steve Ellis, president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a government spending watchdog group, called for more efficient military budgets. “Certainly Congress has the power of the purse, but considering the Pentagon got more than $750 billion that year, lawmakers could work within that generous budget to reflect their priorities … Instead, they dumped more than $50 billion across accounts for what appear to be in some cases very parochial interests.” Since fiscal 2017, the Pentagon’s base budget has risen by 48 percent. The recently passed House version of the 2023 defense budget ups the funding received by the Pentagon, authorizing $839 billion in military spending—$37 billion more than was requested by the administration. And now, it’s time for the topic that I love… sports! You all know we’re on the Fight Laugh Feast Network, so now let’s talk about some fighting… https://nypost.com/2022/07/17/bronx-native-shane-burgos-now-7-0-in-ufc-bouts-in-new-york/ Bronx native Shane Burgos now 7-0 in UFC bouts in New York Shane Burgos’ record remains perfect in the Empire State. He can thank one hell of a chin for that. The Bronx native, who expressed displeasure with his performance, nevertheless managed to hold on for a majority decision victory over Charles Jourdain on Saturday at UBS Arena in featherweight action during the UFC’s first Long Island event in five years. The win moved him to 7-0 in UFC bouts in his home state. Shane Burgos hates how he ended the fight against Charles Jourdain | ESPN MMA - Play 2:25-3:52 Fans anticipated a clash of action-oriented strikers entering the main-card bout. But for two rounds, Burgos was a grappling beast and Jourdain simply couldn’t handle him. Burgos and his Tiger Schulmann’s MMA team anticipated that strategy would work. In a nifty moment early on, Burgos pushed off the octagon to help secure Jourdain’s back and to attack a rear-naked choke from the body triangle in the highest spot of the first round. He took the back with a standing body triangle again the following round, keeping it longer this time. The expected war on the feet broke out in the final round, but the battle was largely one-way traffic. Jourdain cracked Burgos often, besting the local favorite in significant strikes 84-26, per UFC Stats. Now let’s check in on some baseball standings, as I’m sure we’ve got some baseball fans in our audience: Starting in the American League AL East: The New York Yankees are firing on all cylinders, with a 64-28 record, leading all clubs across the Majors as far as best record goes. The second closest record in the AL East goes to the Tampa Bay Rays, a full-13 games back. It’s a close race in the AL Central, as the Minnesotta Twins are leading the way with a 50-44 record, and two teams are nipping at their heels. The Cleveland Guardians, or Indians as I’ll continue to call them, are standing at 46-44. While the Chicago Whitesox sit at 46-46. In the AL West, it’s a two team race featuring the Houston Astros, and the surprisingly hot Seattle Mariners! The Astros sit at 59-32, and the Mariners are 51-42. By the way, the Mariners are on a 14-game winning streak, and on top of that, the Astros and Mariners have a three game series starting this Friday! Over to the National League, the Mets & the Braves are separated by 2.5 games atop the east. In the NL Central, the Brewers are only ahead of the Cardinals by half a game. Each of them have 50 wins a piece. And finally, in the NL West, the Dodgers lead the way with the second best record in baseball, at 60-30.

In the prelude to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, intelligence played a critical role in exposing Vladimir Putin's intentions to the world. Since then, NATO has expanded and doubled down on its efforts to counter Russia, all while keeping its eyes to the east on China. Meanwhile, old challenges persist in the Middle East—talks to revive the Iran nuclear deal have reached an impasse and there appears little prospect for a breakthrough, and Biden soon heads off on his first trip to the Middle East to mend a precarious relationship with Saudi Arabia. U.S. intelligence will play a key role in decisionmaking as policymakers navigate these tricky challenges, but what does the Intelligence Community get right and wrong?

Perseverance, Transparency, and Breaking the Glass Ceiling.In this episode of The Outspoken Podcast, host Shana Cosgrove talks to Megan Jaffer, CEO of IAI Strategies LLC and host of the Iron Butterfly Podcast. Megan discusses the origins of her desire to get into the intelligence community and how she persevered until she got what she wanted. We hear the importance of Ellen McCarthy, INSA, and the many women along her professional journey that boosted her up. Megan opens up about the Iron Butterfly Podcast, revealing how it started and what her missions are with the show. Lastly, we hear Megan's favorite book, her surprising fact, and some bonus advice on how to have a successful marriage with two professionally-driven partners. QUOTES “We wanted this to be a podcast where we were telling the real stories of women in intelligence. And it's not just about what they do, but it's the fascinating stories about who they are as women.” - Megan Jaffer [28:59] “Part of the reason that AWIC has been successful is that not everybody grows up in this area, around this community. I'm one of those people that had no touch points, I didn't know anyone.” - Megan Jaffer [33:36] “I have always been taught that you have to tell people how you feel when you love them and you appreciate them - and if they've done something well or they've touched your heart in some way. And so, I try to do that in my life. ” - Megan Jaffer [39:59]   TIMESTAMPS  [00:04] Intro [01:31] Meeting Megan [04:01] The TIM Collective [08:28] Ellen McCarthy [13:13] Discussing INSA [14:19] Megan's Desire to Enter the Intelligence Community [19:12] Where Megan Gets Her Perseverance [25:38] Starting the Iron Butterfly Podcast [33:36] The Importance of Accessibility in the Intelligence Community [36:13] Getting Over Nervousness Around Senior Women [40:51] Dream Sessions [46:02] Advice Given and Advice Received [49:36] Megan's Book Recommendation [51:01] Megan's Surprising Fact [51:53] Making Marriage Work with Two Professionally-Driven People [56:54] Outro     RESOURCES https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/spotlight-diversity-amazing-women-intelligence-alexandra-mccargo/?trk=read_related_article-card_title (Amazing Women of the IC (AWIC)) https://commandpurpose.org/ (Command Purpose) https://www.insaonline.org/ (Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA)) https://www.linkedin.com/in/ellen-mccarthy-0ba3787/ (Ellen McCarthy) https://www.nga.mil/ (National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)) https://nationalsecurity.gmu.edu/chuck-alsup/ (Chuck Alsup) https://www.linkedin.com/in/letitia-long-156aa883 (Letitia Long) https://noblis.org/ (Noblis) https://www.dia.mil/ (Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)) https://www.linkedin.com/in/dawn-meyerriecks-bba7b9/ (Dawn Meyerriecks) https://www.linkedin.com/in/sue-gordon-55ab1738/ (Sue Gordon) https://www.insaonline.org/events/baker/ (William Oliver Baker Award Dinner) https://www.winsmediafest.com/ (Women In National Security Media Festival) https://www.army.mil/article/121984/miss_virginia_hall (Virginia Hall) https://www.amazon.com/Gratitude-Marala-Scott/dp/1449497276 (With Gratitude) by Marala Scott https://the.ismaili/ (Shia Ismaili Muslims)   RELEVANT LINKS https://www.linkedin.com/in/megan-jaffer-692616181 (Megan Jaffer) on LinkedIn https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/iron-butterfly/id1530244949 (Iron Butterfly Podcast) https://nylatechnologysolutions.com/ (Nyla Technology Solutions) I'd love to hear from you -- your feedback is important to me and I read all of it.

In episode 76 of The Cyber5, guest moderator and Nisos Director for Product Marketing, Stephen Helm, is joined by our guest, Dr. Maria Robson, the Program Coordinator for the Intelligence Project of the Belfer Center at Harvard University's Kennedy School.  We discuss the evolution of intelligence roles in enterprise and the ultimate path for intelligence professionals. We cover ethics in private sector intelligence teams and the role of academia in fostering not only the ethics, but also the professionalization of private sector intelligence positions. Dr. Robson also discusses insights into how proactive intelligence gathering capabilities tends to provide most value to enterprise. Finally, she gives an overview of the Association of International Risk Intelligence Professionals work and mission. Three Takeaways: Ethical Focus is Critical Ethical lines of consideration and having a standard of what is appropriate for collection and analysis is important but currently very murky. Collection and analysis for the U.S. Intelligence Community would be entirely inappropriate and illegal when collecting against private sector persons and organizations. Standards would ensure, for example, that new analysts know what was in and out of bounds of the type of inquiry that can be answered. The Association of International Risk Intelligence Professionals (AIRIP) is leading the way to identify these standards. Apprentice and Guild Process is Critical if Standards are Slow to be Developed Craft and guild process is important to get jobs in private sector intelligence because there is no linear pathway to employment. Since networking and a manager's previous experience in the intelligence community, non-profit, or private sector are the driving forces behind mentorship, craft and guild benchmarking and professionalization become important models.  Security Organization and Reporting Structure Has Changed Cyber threat intelligence, geopolitical risk, and corporate security have historically been the security functions. Before digging into how cyber threat intelligence benefits a physical security program, we identify a list of some of the services, products, and analyses that a CTI program might address.  The following services have significant overlap with physical security programs: Adversary infrastructure analysis Attribution analysis Dark Web tracking Internal threat hunting  Threat research for identification and correlation of malicious actors and external datasets Intelligence report production  Intelligence sharing (external to the organization) Tracking threat actors' intentions and capabilities Other CTI services generally do not overlap with physical security and remain the responsibility of cybersecurity teams. These services include malware analysis and reverse engineering, vulnerabilities research, and indicator analysis (enrichment, pivoting, and correlating to historical reporting). Security teams are now leveraging open-source intelligence and cyber threat intelligence to provide critical information to physical security practitioners. The physical and corporate security programs of these teams generally consist of the following disciplines, with use cases that are at the center of the convergence of cyber and physical security disciplines: Executive Protection and Physical Asset Protection Travel Security Regulatory/Environmental Risk Specific to Business Geo-Political Risk Supply Chain Risk Management Global Investigations

In the late eighties and early nineties, driven by the post–Cold War environment and lessons learned during military operations, United States policy makers made intelligence support to the military the Intelligence Community's top priority. In response to this demand, the CIA and DoD instituted policy and organizational changes that altered their relationship with one another. While debates over the future of the Intelligence Community were occurring on Capitol Hill, the CIA and DoD were expanding their relationship in peacekeeping and nation-building operations in Somalia and the Balkans. By the late 1990s, some policy makers and national security professionals became concerned that intelligence support to military operations had gone too far. In Subordinating Intelligence: The DoD/CIA Post-Cold War Relationship (UP of Kentucky Press, 2019), David P. Oakley reveals that, despite these concerns, no major changes to national intelligence or its priorities were implemented. These concerns were forgotten after 9/11, as the United States fought two wars and policy makers increasingly focused on tactical and operational actions. As policy makers became fixated with terrorism and the United States fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, the CIA directed a significant amount of its resources toward global counterterrorism efforts and in support of military operations.

Scott is joined by CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou to discuss the recent uptick in deplatforming efforts against alternative media sites like Consortium News and MintPress News. They discuss the hold that the Intelligence Community has over establishment national security “journalists.” The example of Ken Dilanian comes up, the journalist who reported on the CIA, but who sent every draft to the CIA for approval before even sending it to his own editor. Meanwhile, alternative websites like The Gayzone, Consortium News, MintPress News and Antiwar.com get no access and are quickly labeled as unstable conspiracy theorists. Recently, the deplatforming attempts against these sites have ramped up with the new “misinformation” labeling group NewsGuard. Scott and Kiriakou agree that this is the logical consequence of the attempt to ruin Jullian Assange, but also that it could be an act of desperation.

Fitton comments that the case just shows “how far the left has gone from pretending to be against discrimination to promoting it”. The President also discusses the recent bombshell dropped by John Durham's in his filing last night, showing Clinton campaign text messages proving that the Democrats and the Hillary Clinton campaign knew that the Russian collusion allegations were false and were using them as a smear campaign and a “conspiracy” to undermine Donald Trump. Fitton comments that the “Biden's family relationships within that region of the world”, went into “Putin's decision-making when it came to invading Ukraine”, because he “recognized that Biden was compromised”.
