Why withhold my entire @FBI file with no explanation (as required by law)? What on earth is in there?
I will bet money that nothing of interest is in there, and FBI was uninvolved in whatever operation targeted her. At most, what might be in there is FBI surveillance incidentally noting the operation that targeted her while FBI was doing other surveillance near her, but I would be surprised if even that made it into the official file. My assumption would be that they are just stonewalling her to slow her down and prevent her from moving on to pursue more effective methods of attack.
There was a legendary agent of the FBI decades back who became obsessed with some massive surveillance operation that targeted him. His final conclusion was that what he was seeing was some sort of military intelligence, maybe Reserve or National Guard, possibly because such would offer some sort of legal workaround under the guise of training, or perhaps under the guise of creating intelligence networks on the orders of governors for use in the event of civil unrest. This would jibe with the book Chameleo, whose protagonist set off across the country to escape his “gangstalkers” and then re-encountered his followers whenever he neared military installations.
It is possible that being FBI, that agent was offering false information as a cover to what was going on, but if not, then even being an FBI agent didn’t help him. Today FBI agents tried to help a mistress of Clinton’s who fell under the machine by giving her advice, but although sympathetic, they were ultimately helpless to aid her.
In Sharyl’s case, I will bet the grassroots FBI would love to break open a case on this, and bring whoever planted classified documents on Sharyl’s computer to justice. But at the end of the day, even the FBI is powerless in this new rule-less American government. When the machine barks orders, even the FBI will ignore the law and deny Sharyl’s requests to protect the machine. I don’t know where this goes, but the trajectory is not encouraging. We can thank the Obama rabbits, and probably the Bushes before him.
Two intelligence-connected sources separately suggest to Attkisson that she’s likely under government surveillance due to her reporting. One source tells her the government has pushed the envelope like never before and that public would be shocked to “learn the extent that the government is conducting surveillance of private citizens.”
They aren’t talking about keeping a record of what websites everyone is visiting. Electronic monitoring is bothersome, but ultimately something I think everyone suspects goes on anyway. The real thing which will ultimately bring about the crisis will be everything else going on. Personal attacks on individuals by rogue operators, like planting classified documents designed to imprison Sharyl, is not conducive to the long term trust in, and stability of the government. Targeting of individuals for harassment and intimidation absent any judicial oversight or legal justification will cause an uproar someday, if it comes to light. Intervention in the political process will destroy confidence in the government’s already shaky legitimacy. And what happens when you find out the young bucks in the “fraternity house” down the street were actually listening inside your house to every moment of your life for the last eight years will be interesting.
Fortunately, as a target himself, President Trump is fully inoculated against any blowback from this. Because when it hits, I have little doubt it will be cataclysmic, and take down much of the DC establishment and the elites.
There is a weird feel to what is coming. So many powderkegs, from the economic, to the racial, to the loss of civil order, to the loss of supply infrastructure, to the personal debt bombs, to the pension debt bombs, to the pandemic, to the world-war, to the weakness of everyone in the cities who is to face these trials, to the divide between ideologues, to the fissures in the support of the citizenry for government. It would seem when whatever it is hits, everything will detonate at once.
Buckle up, because you will be telling your grandkids about this one, and they won’t blink through the whole thing.
