Judge Napalitano Smells a Rat!

Did NSA Chief (JUST) Lie To Congress?
Judge Andrew Napolitano would LOVE to cross examine.

You have to listen to the Q & A until you 'get' what they are saying. I missed it first go around.

Appearance.

The PTB are so careful to put harmless-looking people out as the spokesmen for their tyranny. Like this guy, General Alexander, who looks so nice and neighborly, sort of like Harry Reid who seems so genuine and soft-spoken, with his NPR voice.

But "inward they are ravening wolves." Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees! The doctrine of the power structure is meant to look innocent, but it's in reality completely focused on the dismantling of our freedoms.

Somebody needs to arrest this traitor, and go all the way to the top, meaning Ben B. at the Fed and his bosses. I'm sick of their confidence that comes from feeling they are immune. That immunity needs to be shattered.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

The FIRST question was bogus, too!

Notice the first question was ALSO bogus (which tells me the questioner either didn't do his homework or was deliberately pitching softballs):

"Is the NSA on private companies' servers?"

This is only "yes" if the NSA is running software on the server machines or can issue control messages to them.

What the NSA has been caught doing is installing their OWN servers on companies' facilities and hooking them up to their networks - for instance: With fiber signal splitters.

Better questions would be:
- Does the NSA have any equipment on private companies' sites?
- Does the NSA have any access to private companies' network traffic?
- Does the NSA have any control of private companies' server functionality beyond that of an ordinary customer?

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

anybody have a link to Shep's interview with Hayden

that was supposed to be on after?

hahah, they Goverment lies are so obvious

its like watching slapstick comedy.

Anyone with technical understanding can see how obvious the lies are from the government.

1. They build a facility capable of storing 100 years worth of DATA
2. They build this facility right over the top of a national Fiber Back bone
3. The computational ability of this facility is built to be capable of realtime traffic interception and analysis of all that data

It is obvious they have the ability, and I'd bet my worthless FRN's that they are in fact monitoring every communication.

Sheps last comment was epic!

"Mr Government, tear down this wall"

Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn't love a wall,

The 11 lies and 1 truth told at the NSA "hearing"

1. NSA Director's lie #1. Everybody who wanted to know already knew. Snowden's "leaks" didn't reveal anything new.
(Unless you count that the NSA called their mass data collection program - Prism.
I didn't know what the NSA called it until recently.)

Every foreign government and potential terrorist knew, what I knew.
It has all been widely available on the net for many years.
Snowden "leaked" very little that was "new".

2. NSA Director's lie number 2. The Zazi subway plot has already been completely discredited. It could of been foiled with a warrant after finding probable cause

3. NSA Director's lie #3. The mass data collection of Americans, does not help America's National Security. It distracts from real dangers.

4. "Standard for permitting query of internal US phone calls is a "reasonable, articulable suspicion"".
They have been listening in on US troops PHONE SEX when they call home.

5. "Only 20 analysts within NSA are empowered to approve targeting US-based phone conversations" There are many hundreds, over a thousand.

6. Do you feel that Fisa court is a rubber stamp? Alexander does not feel that way. Tens of thousands have been approved - only about 1 has been rejected.

7. "we would like to release as much of Fisa court rulings as we can" They've been covering them up as hard as they can.

8. "NSA only records that are collected" under 215 "is that telephony data. That's all." Alexander. Collecting pretty much ALL electronic comms

9. NSA can't target calls or emails of any US person, anywhere in world," without an individualized court order. Verizon covered many millions.

10. Do we maintain a database of all the emails that have ever been sent? "None at the NSA." Alexander. ALL emails are now being collected. Probably all have been collected since circa 2006.

11. Of the 4 cases cited, 2 could of been stopped with a warrant after probable cause (1 and 4).
No need for Mass Surveillance. The other 2 need to be checked.

12. Half a lie
How many contractors work as system administrators? "On the order of a thousand," Alexander says. There are over 4,000 private contractors. One third have Top Security security clearance. So that's at least 1,300. Alexander will know the exact number.

Some other statements need to be fact checked, 2 or 3 other lies will probably be found.
The above ia after a cursory look through the statements made and the most obvious of patent lies.

Truth number 1
With exposure of surveillance programs "We run the risk of losing these collection capabilities." Yep - they are unconstitutional under the 4th Amendment.
They are also a threat to international relations with our allies.
The Germans have already cried foul and over 1 million people have signed the international petition to grant Snowden immunity and to stop the Prism program immediately.
The majority of the signatories are from Europe.
Let's restore the Rule of Law in America and stop spying on every American.

Nobody mentioned Boston.
How come with this Mass data collection program the Boston bombing wasn't stopped?
There was a wealth of evidence that the elder brother posed a substantive terrorist threat.
The FBI had been keeping tabs on him for at least 2 years previously BECAUSE he was a substantive terrorist threat.
That risk only increased during his 6 month visit to the Caucasus where he mixed with Islamic hate preachers.
Yet he was down graded on the watch lists - how come?
N.B Neither the Patriot Act nor Mass Surveillance was required to keep tabs on the bomber.
The FBI already had plenty of PROBABLE CAUSE to obtain a warrant.

Ruppersberger wants to know how to stop the next Snowden.
I want to know how they are going to stop getting distracted by spying on millions of totally innocent Americans and stop the next BOSTON - instead of completely failing in what is supposed to be their primary purpose.

Comment - the Senators were coaching and leading Alexander for the answers they wanted to hear.
Less of a hearing and more a piece of political theater designed to try and fool the gullible.

Bachmann asked a VERY leading question when she asked :-
Has the NSA collected every email ever sent?"
Of course not - the first email was sent in the mid 90's or even earlier.
The NSA have been collecting every American's email sent after circa 2006 and a large number from 2002.

The final irony :-

NSA Director General Alexander :- "trust us, we have internal safeguards" LOL

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

New video title: "Anchor Invents Investigative Journalism"

"FOX Anchor Muppet Spontaneously Discovers Investigative Journalism"

It's like he's describing asking questions, discovering evidence, trying to resolve contradictory answers ...

... in order to .. in order to ... !

Come to some underlying truth!

"It's almost like .. you start to wonder whether there's something going here!"

I lol'd so hard.

I laughed when Shep defined himself

"not a conspiracy theorist, but a journalist"

Mr. Smith, if at some point in investigative journalism, you come across evidence of conspiracy; and you downplay it, or refuse to report what you know to be true for personal considerations; then you are no journalist. Is, "untrue", the best you can do?

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Congress and the senate

Congress and the senate should already be looking out for answers, answered in such a way, they should ALREADY be reminding them that they are under oath, followed by, that is not the question i asked, then reapeat the the question, and KEEP repeating it, until they give their answer, YES or NO.........and keep the questions simple please.

Does nsa have the ability to look into someones phone call?

NOT

Does the nsa have the ability to look into dozens of peoples phone calls?

Well, actually its millions, but i wont volunter that, so, no

The Judge is doing more good in than out

I remember when the Ron Paul community was about ready to Occupy Fox for discontinuing the Judge's popular show Freedom Watch. Goodness, if that show was still on, perhaps we wouldn't desperately need new journalism like Ben Swann's project. But the Judge kindly asked the community to lay off his cancellation given that he would still be paid to give his unfettered legal opinion on a MSM outlet.

It is nice to have our freedom stalwart by the podium as people begin to wake from the haze of government speak.

Dang

Shep was on fire!
Great interview, he should take O'reilly's spot. Who cuts off an answer with another question.

There are a lot more than just one.

In fact, there may only be one or two out of 535 who are not rats.

Wake up! Wake up!

Good to hear Shep giving our rallying cry.

Congress Should Make These Thugs Answer The Questions

Thanks to Shep & The Judge for a good analysis

haha, asking one thug to make

haha, asking one thug to make another thug answer truthfully.. good one!

I happened to be in a waiting

I happened to be in a waiting room with a tv on and saw that live. My dad who was sitting next to me said he was lying and I said yes.
He may have thought he was being slick by saying it the way he did, but I have to wonder how many people lost trust just because of that single statement.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Love Shep On These Issues

The Judge doesn't remember who that prior obsfuscator was from a couple weeks back.

It was the President.

I noticed throughout the hearing they responded with

"not under this program" or "not under 702 or 215" They were very careful to cover their a**es by ending their answers with those phrases.

Good Point

If you can't answer Yes or No and have to provide a stipulation, you're being misleading.
