    FBI Sweep Puts US Media In Terror As Trump Prepares To Jail Top Reporters

    SNIP

    In their zeal, however, to destroy Trump, this report continues, these US mainstream media journalists have blindly overlooked the most important fact in this war they’ve started against their president—and that is these unelected intelligence operatives who are leaking classified information to them work for President Trump, not the other way around.

    And though a relatively small number of Trump’s unelected intelligence operatives have, indeed, been colluding with the US mainstream media to bring him down, this report says, these journalists, and their publisher leaders, have failed to notice at their peril that at their presidents side to command is, at least, 1,271 government intelligence organizations, 1,931 private intelligence companies (in 10,000 locations in the United States) who are presently working on counterterrorism, homeland security, and intelligence—and that when added together as a whole, includes over 854,000 Trump loyalists holding top-secret clearances, and who are sworn, and ready, to defend him.
    Also failing to be noticed by the masses of these US mainstream journalists, this report continues, is that the Trump-Flynn “Canary Trap” maneuver has already sprung—and as evidenced by President Trump secretly moving General Flynn to the most powerful, and secretive, American spy agency known as the Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR) nearly 48 hours ago.

    It must be noted, however, this report states, that though the masses of these US mainstream journalists are gleefully believing they’ve destroyed General Flynn and seriously damaged Trump, nothing could be further from the truth—with the devastating backlash to come from President Trump against them being noted by too few “real/true” reporters, but who, in just a few articles, are warning of what is to come, and include:

    1.)    Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald warning these journalists: “In the spectrum of crimes involving the leaking of classified information, publicly revealing the contents of SIGINT — signals intelligence — is one of the most serious felonies. Journalists (and all other nongovernmental citizens) can be prosecuted under federal law for disclosing classified information only under the narrowest circumstances; reflecting how serious SIGINT is considered to be, one of those circumstances includes leaking the contents of intercepted communications.”

    2.)    Bloomberg News national security reporter Eli Lake warning these journalists: “Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private conversations monitored by the FBI or NSA gives the permanent state the power to destroy reputations from the cloak of anonymity. This is what police states do.”

    3.)    Senior correspondent for The Week News Service Damon Linker warning these journalists: “America's spies anonymously took down Michael Flynn...That is deeply worrying...Far too many Trump critics appear not to care that these intelligence agents leaked highly sensitive information to the press — mostly because Trump critics are pleased with the result.”

    But too little, and too late, did these warnings come to the masses of these US mainstream journalists who have grossly violated the United States most powerful laws against leaking classified information, this report says, and as evidenced by the less than 24 hour period between when General Flynn was secretly moved to his new intelligence position by President Trump and the FBI teams that began sweeping up journalists in both New York City and Washington D.C.

    Armed with what are called National Security Letters (NSL’s), this report explains, these FBI teams are presenting their targeted “Canary Trap” journalist “birdies” with an administrative subpoena issued by the President Trump’s federal government authorizing these agents to gather information for national security purposes—and that do not require prior approval from a judge, and if spoken, or written, of by the recipient means automatic imprisonment.

    Relax, Trump is stone cold sane

    Let me issue the standard disclaimer of psychiatrists who discuss the mental health of public figures: I have not personally examined President Trump.

    Now, let me put to rest the concerns of Sen. Al Franken and political commentators John Oliver and Andrew Sullivan and anyone else who publicly or privately has questioned the president’s sanity:

    Donald Trump is stone cold sane.

    When a man acquires billions of dollars through complex real estate transactions, invests in many countries, goes on to phenomenal success in television and turns his name into a worldwide brand, it is very unlikely that he is mentally unstable.

    When the same man obviously enjoys the love and respect of his children and his wife, who seem to rely on him for support and guidance, it is extraordinarily unlikely that he is mentally unstable.

    When the same man walks into the political arena and deftly defeats 16 Republican opponents and then the Democratic heir-apparent to a two-term president’s administration, the odds of that man being mentally unstable become vanishingly thin.

    And when that very same man attracts to his team the kind of intellect and gravitas represented (to name just a few) by Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general and commander of the U.S. Central Command, he cannot be mentally deranged. Period. It is a statistical impossibility.

    Those who assert otherwise are political opportunists, or fools, or both (and I am thinking here, in particular, of Sen. Franken).

    President Trump is the first human being to win this nation’s highest office without having held any other political office or serving as a general. Most political pundits thought his quest was pure folly. Most journalists assessed his chances as zero. So who was laboring under quasi-delusional thinking? Answer: Not Donald J. Trump.

    Anecdotally, by the way, I have never had one bad Trump experience. Not one. I own several of his ties — all of them of the highest quality. I have stayed in his hotels and never had a single complaint (and I am a born complainer). I have eaten in his New York restaurant — flawless service, excellent food. I own an apartment at Trump Place in Manhattan. Impeccable design, sturdy construction, fabulous amenities. A mentally unstable man would be unlikely to deliver superior products across multiple industries, don’t you think?

    If you’re still worried about the mental stability of the president, note this: The stock market doesn’t like instability. Investors, en masse, can take the measure of a man pretty darn well. The stock market has hit record high after record high since Trump’s election, and if you think that’s an accident, or that investors have all been fooled, it’s time to start wondering about your own capacity for rational thought.

    I should note that nothing I am saying should besmirch the reputations of men like President Abraham Lincoln or Sir Winston Churchill, both of whom are said to have fought the ravages of major depression or bipolar disorder. One was instrumental in ridding America of slavery. The other was instrumental in saving the world from tyranny. Mahatma Gandhi, by the way, also reportedly suffered from depression. Psychiatric illness does not, a priori, disqualify a person from rendering extraordinary service to mankind.

    Mind you, neither Lincoln nor Churchill nor Gandhi led a nation after becoming a business sensation and television star. That trifecta defines one man: President Donald J. Trump.

    Now, think about those who are rabble-rousing about the president’s mental status. Take Sen. Al Franken. He’s all worried about the president allegedly overestimating the crowd size at his inauguration. But Franken is allied with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who asserted she is Native American, when there is no evidence of that whatsoever.

    And they’re calling Trump’s sanity into question? Really, you can’t make this stuff up.

    Limbaugh on Trump: ‘This Was One of the Most Effective Press Conferences I Have Ever Seen’

    Thursday following President Donald Trump’s press conference to announce his pick for Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh applauded Trump’s performance on his nationally syndicated radio show.

    Limbaugh said while the media still won’t warm up to Trump, it was what his supporters wanted to see, which was a willingness to tout his achievements and take on some of the claims from the media.

    “You know it is hard to say — you get caught up in the moment,” Limbaugh said. “But this was one of the most effective press conferences I have ever seen. The press is going to hate him even more after this. Don’t misunderstand. When I say effective, I’m talking about rallying people who voted for him to stay with him. He made a point — ‘What chaos? You’re reporting chaos. We’re not in chaos. We’re a well-oiled machine. We got one of the smoothest running machines in the history of machines. We got one of the best administrations in the history of administrations.'”

    “And he rattled off the achievements they’ve had here that the media is not reporting because they’re so focused on whether or not Trump worked with Russia to screw Hillary out of the presidency,” he continued. “And he was reassuring the people he’s on top of everything. Nothing has changed. Everything he campaigned on, he is doing. All he is doing is fulfilling campaign promises. And of course, the Democrats don’t like him. Of course, the media don’t like him. It isn’t going to stop him.”

    DARK JOURNALIST & CATHY O'BRIEN
    MKULTRA MIND CONTROL TARGET OF THE DEEP STATE!


    MKULTRA Survivor Cathy O'Brien

    "In this fascinating episode Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt welcomes United States Government Whistleblower Cathy O'Brien the author of the classic book on Covert Mind Control programs, Trance Formation of America. The book was based on Cathy's groundbreaking testimony for the US Congressional Permanent Select Committees on Intelligence Oversight in 1995.

    Cathy's fascinating journey through the world of Deep Political Corruption and Covert CIA Programs began when her abusive father sold her into MKULTRA Mind Control Programs at an early age in Michigan through his political connections with local politicians, including future President of the United States Gerald Ford.

    Through systematic torture and well documented trauma-based mind control programming, Cathy was forced to do shocking acts as a sex slave and participate in CIA Black Ops and White House/Pentagon level operations during the Reagan/Bush Administration. During this period she interfaced with high-level political figures including Hillary and Bill Clinton, former President George Bush Sr. and former Vice President Dick Cheney.

    Breaking free of her mind control programming and Dissociative Identity Disorder with the help of intelligence insider Mark Phillips over the course of a decade, Cathy exposed the insidious world of criminal covert operations happening inside Black Budget operations connected with the Pentagon and intelligence agencies, including human trafficking and extensive drug running programs.

    Deep State efforts to suppress her testimony culminated in the National Security Act being invoked to silence her and continue right up to the present. Nonetheless Cathy's latest venture was to create a new workbook, PTSD: Time to Heal that actually allows trauma and sexual abuse victims to reclaim conscious control and deep connection to their inner memories.

    Her story has touched thousands of survivors of mind control programming and dark political manipulation and given the public a transparent and shockingly honest vision of the hidden worlds of covert intelligence operations that exist and thrive behind a wall of National Security State secrecy."

    DARK JOURNALIST & CATHY O'BRIEN
    CIA SEX SLAVE WHISTLEBLOWER - PROJECT MONARCH EXPOSED!



    Cathy O'Brien MKULTRA Survivor
    In this exhilarating and highly informative part 2 interview with MKULTRA Survivor Cathy O'Brien, Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt goes deep into her CIA MKULTRA mind control programming and the methods employed to keep her in a robotic state in order to carry out top secret black budget missions and sexual favors to politicians against her will.

    Project Monarch
    Cathy outlines some of her fascinating and disturbing experiences in the Project Monarch program and reveals how it targets young people through the music industry by creating zombified recording acts and electronic forms of brain entrainment via suggestion and hidden overtone harmonics that effect the brains neural pathways.

    CIA Mormons and the Osmonds
    She describes how Senator George Romney, the father of Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, was involved and how the Monarch programming was deployed to help the Mormon Church gain acceptance in the 1970's through the music phenomena of the Osmonds and how other musical groups like the Jacksons were deeply involved as puppets of the program.

    She also reveals how high level figures like Senator Robert Byrd, who was Cathy's owner in the program and a strong mentor to Bill and Hillary Clinton, got her involved in drug running operations out of Mena Arkansas as a Sex Slave and Robotic Courier of implanted messages and sexual favors to the Criminal Political Figures involved.

    On a deeply personal note, she describes the bitter battle with the Justice Department to free her daughter from corrupt social services and how she feels now about her depraved father who sold her into the horrid MKULTRA mind control effort at an early age. Cathy's father is still alive today and protected from prosecution due to reasons of 'National Security."

    A most recent very nice loving gesture ...

    Teen hands out 600 Valentine’s roses to every girl at his high school




    "HOLMEN, Wisc. – A Wisconsin teen wanted to make sure that every girl in his high school got a remembrance on Valentine’s Day, so he decided to buy every single one of them a rose.

    He wound up buying 600 roses.

    Zack Peterson told WKBT that he knew that a lot of his female friends would be sad if they didn’t get flowers.

    So he went into action to make sure they all got a rose. It took weeks of planning and prep and cost $450, but he did it.

    The flowers were ordered directly from Ecuador and given out at the school to the delight of all the girls. And Zack didn’t stop at students – every lady in the school, from lunch workers to guidance counselors also got a rose. Oh, and his mom got a bouquet too.

    “He’s got the biggest heart,” his mom, Rachel Peterson, said. “He doesn’t do things for a reaction, he does them because he’s truly, truly kind.”

    Oh California ...

    Weather Explainers
    8 Reasons Why Rain Is a Big Deal in Southern California



    "LOS ANGELES: Intense rain, heavy snow and strong winds lashed California and southern Oregon on Friday, prompting the evacuation of more than a hundred homes threatened by mudslides near Los Angeles, officials said.

    As much as 10 inches (25 cm) of rain could fall at a rate of 1 inch (3 cm) per hour in parts of Southern California on Friday, said the National Weather Service, raising the risk of mudslides.

    The severe storm could bring California's heaviest rainfall in six years, after months of wet weather that has dramatically eased California's years-long drought. The heavy rain and melting snowpack threatened to undermine a spillway at one of the largest dams in the country, which prompted the evacuation of 188,000 residents earlier this week.

    The city of Duarte, about 20 miles (32 km) east of Los Angeles, said it ordered residents of 180 homes to evacuate given the potential for mudslides.

    A forest fire charred an area above their homes last year, prompting concerns that heavy rain could trigger mudslides where there is no vegetation.

    Alberto Moreno, 34, piled sandbags outside his home on Friday after refusing to leave the area.

    "The neighbours are here so we're all basically going to help out each other if it comes down to it," Moreno said.

    Heather Malone, 44, another Duarte resident, said she was prepared to escape by car if she saw "half the mountain coming down" near her home.

    The downpours in other heavily populated areas of Southern California, including parts of Santa Barbara and Ventura counties also recently hit by wildfires, could create the risk of mud and debris flows there too, the weather service said.

    Authorities have warned residents of an area west of Santa Barbara, where another wildfire ravaged vegetation last year, to prepare to leave their homes quickly if ordered to evacuate.

    Rain also battered parts of Northern California and southern Oregon and the weather service had flood warnings in effect in both regions on Friday afternoon.

    In higher areas of eastern California and western Nevada, as much as 2 feet (60 cm) of snow could cause whiteouts, forecasters said.

    Southwest Airlines Co said it had cancelled more than 250 flights in California, as the storm caused disruptions.

    Airports in Los Angeles, San Francisco and other parts of California had dozens of cancelled or delayed flights, according to tracking website FlightAware.com."
