The Edge of Treason: The CIA Waging War Against American President for Threatening to Restructure Their BIG CLUB

by Scott Creighton

Yes, Virginia, there really are monsters working at the CIA.

This morning, after waking from the first good night’s sleep I have had since Friday night, I suffered through the first 20 minutes of Morning Joe during which their entire panel basically got down on their knees in the studio and offered a collective blow job to anyone working in the CIA because… “liberty” or some such nonsense.

Though that is a bit of an exaggeration, what they actually did was probably more disturbing to watch as they repeatedly justified a US intelligence agency openly working against a seated president because they didn’t like his policies. That’s treason folks. Treason on an agency-wide basis and treason being openly supported by the gaggle of neoliberal war-mongers at Morning Joe.

Some will try to tell you that this apparent war between The Donald and the CIA is a fabrication. I wont. It’s very real and it’s been on since Killary stole the nomination and the CIA’s leadership made it painfully clear she was their tainted choice to lead the nation into the new age of Red-baiting McCarthyism.

Ever since their corrupt candidate of choice lost, the CIA and the DNI have been doing everything they could to gin-up hostility toward both Russia and the current president of the United States. As one reported noted, we are looking at an unprecedented development in this country: intelligence agencies actively waging information warfare against a seated president because they perceive, rightly or not, that he will be less aggressive toward a nuclear armed state than they would like him to be.

Can you imagine what would have happened in this country had any intelligence agency been this hostile toward President Obama in the first month of his presidency?

On January the 4th, 2017, The Hill reported on Trump’s plans to restructure the two intelligence agencies.

President-elect Donald Trump is crafting plans to restructure at least two of the nation’s top intelligence agencies, according to a new report.

Trump is eyeing overhauls of the CIA and the office of the director of national intelligence (DNI)The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The view from the Trump team is the intelligence world [is] becoming completely politicized,” an individual close to Trump’s transition operation said. “They all need to be slimmed down. The focus will be on restructuring agencies and how they interact.”

Trump is targeting the CIA and the DNI as he publicly wars with the U.S. intelligence community over its conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.” The Hill

Key to that report is the following line:

The Journal added that advisers helping Trump draft the proposed alterations include retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.).” The Hill

That would be the same Mike Flynn the CIA just did away with.

That’s unfair. The CIA didn’t do away with him by themselves. They needed the help of all their Mockingbirds in the complicit corporate press as well as from members of the unDemocratic Party of America.

I saw Maxine Waters yesterday on some CNN show regurgitating all the current talking points about various “connections” members of the Trump administration supposedly have with “da ebil Rooskies”. She concluded that because 5 people have some kind of 6 degrees of separation to Moscow, The Donald has to be impeached because… “liberty” or some such nonsense.

Maxine smiled a big smile at the end because she was able to recount all the correct propaganda lines without messing up like she did last time when she said “Russia invaded Korea”.

Maxine Waters is a complete idiot and she’s an old idiot which is even worse. She’s like what John McCain would be if he were black and a woman.

The Dems are busy doing the public wet-work of the CIA in congress. They want investigations into what they claim was Russia derailing our election process. They are rabid and foaming at the mouth and regardless of how much they want to believe that old CIA-crafted lie, the fact remains there is no evidence at all to suggest Russia played any part in influencing the election other than being a country at the time and sitting back and watching like everyone else, the unDemocratic Party failing on a BIBLICAL SCALE in their loss to Donny Tiny Hands.

Meanwhile, the New York Times is reporting Donald Trump has decided to continue with his CIA restructuring plan. They say he’s picked a vulture capitalist named Steve Feinberg to head up the program to evaluate the current structure of the intelligence agencies and make recommendations to fix it.

“President Trump plans to assign a New York billionaire to lead a broad review of American intelligence agencies, according to administration officials, an effort that members of the intelligence community fear could curtail their independence and reduce the flow of information that contradicts the president’s worldview.

The possible role for Stephen A. Feinberg, a co-founder of Cerberus Capital Management, has met fierce resistance among intelligence officials already on edge because of the criticism the intelligence community has received from Mr. Trump during the campaign and since he became president. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump blamed leaks from the intelligence community for the departure of Michael T. Flynn, his national security adviser, whose resignation he requested.

There has been no announcement of Mr. Feinberg’s job, which would be based in the White House, but he recently told his company’s shareholders that he is in discussions to join the Trump administration.” New York Times

So Trump is moving forward with his plan to remake the CIA and DNI and folks in the intelligence community are not happy about it. Nor were the sycophants on Morning Joe who saw this as some kind of “McCarthyite” move on Trump’s part. Cute how they spun that one, huh?

The Wall Street Journal yesterday reported on the fact that various intelligence agencies have been withholding intel from the president of the United States because… “liberty” or some such nonsense.

The Wall Street Journal, citing unidentified current and former officials familiar with the matter, reports that officials’ decision to keep information from Mr. Trump underscores the deep mistrust that has developed between the intelligence community and the president over his team’s contacts with the Russian government, as well as the enmity he has shown toward U.S. spy agencies. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump accused the agencies of leaking information to undermine him.” Zero Hedge

I’m not going to sit here and tell you Donald Trump is some kind of hero for standing up to the CIA. He might just be naive enough to think he can get away with it. After all, they are attacking him on all fronts, doing their best to remove members of his team and manufacturing connections between his staff and “da ebil Rookies” like they’re run by the ghost of McCarthy himself and The Donald is still pressing forward with his restructuring plans rather than cowering in the corner and recanting his previous statements. That can’t be the smartest thing he ever did.

I’m also not going to tell you this is the first time a White House administration feuded with the CIA over power and policy. It certainly has happened in the past and at least one time back in ’63, it didn’t end so well for the seated president (or the country for that matter)

What I will tell you is conflict between presidents and the CIA has never been this public nor this overt. Again, at least not since ’63.

How it will end is anyone’s guess. But it is real and this out of control agency of terror, the CIA, is walking a fine line right up to the edge of treason. Why they are doing it is anyone’s guess. Yeah, they wanted Killary in power because under the unDemocratic Party the agency has risen to unimaginable levels of power in this country and across the world and they are probably concerned their new Cold War will wither on the vine under a Trump presidency.

It could also be as simple as the fact that they tipped their hand in the run-up to the election and now they’ve pissed off Trump so much, they expect the restructuring to cripple them in ways it will take decades of Democratic Party leadership to rebuild.

Yes Virginia, there really are monsters working at the CIA. They want endless war with a nuclear state and are willing to slander and undermine the president of the United States in order to save themselves and their piece of the power pie in Washington. Someone needs to yank on their leash a bit. The only question is.. is Trump the man for the job or will he fold under pressure like a comb-over in high winds?

I guess we will find out.

  1. “Why they are doing it is anyone’s guess.”

    A crucial bit of context is the ICC’s imminent decision on referral of CIA torture to the Pre-Trial Chamber. CIA’s impunity is under threat. UN Special Procedures have characterized CIA torture with the term of art “systematic and widespread.” That means it is a crime against humanity, that is, legally, what the Nazis did. The Nuremberg Principles get invoked and it’s open season on CIA torturers in any jurisdiction in the world, with no statute of limitations. Torture is unique because of US accession to the Convention Against Torture. The treaty body has indicated unsatisfactory response to urgent issues and could make public the results of a confidential investigation. Italy and Portugal are cooperating on the international criminal law obligation erga omnes to prosecute and extradite suspects. Treaty bodies have insisted on command responsibility as a requisite for treaty compliance. CIA can’t just lock up a couple hillbillies.

    Concerted international pressure is the origin of CIA’s hysteria.

  2. ” … a co-founder of Cerberus Capital Management,”

    “In Greek mythology, Cerberus (/ˈsɜːrbərəs/;[2] Greek: Κέρβερος Kerberos [ˈkerberos]), often called the “hound of Hades”, is the monstrous multi-headed dog that guards the gates of the Underworld to prevent the dead from leaving.”

    Like they say, folks … You can’t make this stuff up.

  3. According to news reports that fake leftists conveniently forget, members of the “intelligence” agencies sit in ultra-secure compounds watching kiddie porn all day. These “intelligence” parasites want to collect ever-larger paychecks, while becoming ever-more unaccountable. Their power, their funding, and their untouchability have increased with each successive president. Trump is the first president in decades who wants to “trim them down” (his words). Hence Trump must be destroyed.

    The fake leftists praise this treason, since Trump exposes the fake leftist charade. Fake leftists easily spread their lies when the president is a fake leftist (e.g. Obama or Hillary). However their bullshit is imperiled when the president is not a fake leftist. Hence Trump must be destroyed.

    The Russian angle is a distraction by the fake leftists. This is all about piglets defending their respective teats on the sow’s belly.

    • remember back in the early Bush/Cheney days when it was the republicans who openly worshiped at the church of the holy CIA because they were the ones manufacturing all the intel on Iraq and WMDs? The left back then ridiculed having blind faith in the intelligence industry. Now they ridicule you if you don’t. And the neocons are on their side just like they were during the election. it’s a strange thing.

  4. “Conflict between presidents and the CIA has not been this public nor this overt since 1963.” ~ S.C.

    Nor have the lies and hypocrisy of fake leftists been this obvious. Bill Moyers, for example, is demanding that the “intelligence” community expose “Russia’s ties to Trump.” Moyers is furious that Trump is “threatening democracy” by not seeking war with Russia.

    I suspect that these kinds of surrealistic distortions are common among empires that are in decline. Orwellian inversions become rampant. War becomes “peace.” Hypocrisy becomes pandemic. As pundits and politicians fear losing their paychecks and their gravy trains, “progressives” become right-wingers, while right-wingers become fake populists. Pacifists are regarded as terrorists. Heterosexuals are regarded as deviants. Truth is regarded as “hate speech.” Loveliness is regarded as kitsch. Filth is regarded as “art.” A massive police state is regarded as “small government.” Ever-dwindling social programs are regarded as “big government.”

    As an empire starts dying, its structure sags, gets warped, and finally snaps, finally resulting in collapse.

    • Funny you should mention that. And you’re quite accurate. Why, just yesterday, from 30 floors up, this happened:

      http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Evacuation-Orders-San-Francisco-413887593.html

      Not to mention just a few miles northeast from SF lies the dreaded Oroville dam.
      And that’s just California!

      • Well, those gosh-darn gadfly treehuggers pleaded with FERC to restructure the dam with concrete twelve years ago, but to no avail. The federal government needs to stop “restructuring” other countries’ governments and focus on beefing up our own failing infrastructure. When will we learn?

        • Actually, they wanted to restructure the emergency spillway which wouldn’t have even been an issue if the 2013 repairs to main spillway had been done properly. It was the hole in the main spillway that caused the emergency spillway to come into play.

  5. I wonder if it’s more like a emergency recall on product Drumpf (brought to you by unDNC, LLC)? I think the company hoped the public’s outrage would be limited to the Tronald. Instead the outrage has gone off the reservation despite the best efforts of the fake left (indivisible comes to mind), even in red state country. It’s suddenly become socially acceptable for people to talk politics again. That’s a dangerous liability for the masters of the universe.

    • it’s weird because Wall Street is booming and Trump is pushing all the neoliberal crushing austerity and privatization policies they want and yet some faction of the Deep State still wants him gone immediately. Perhaps they figure they can impose his neoliberal agenda and get abject chaos going as a side bonus.. I don’t know. Maybe they are just trying to provide him cover with all this Russian crap while he’s doing what he’s doing. I don’t know.

      • Yeah, looking at the line of succession I don’t think they’ll have any worries about implementing the crushing austerity measures. Sadly, the brownshirts could march into town tomorrow and be greeted as liberators. As long as they carry Tronald away the resistance may just go right back to bed.

        Interesting times, anyhow. Great article, the only one I’ve found on the subject that isn’t sourced from a roided-out, whiskey-drunk Texan. God help us.

  6. ” … conflict between presidents and the CIA has never been this public nor this overt.”

    How about, “nor this staged.” ?

    • The CIA has produced SEVERAL fake reports at this point about Russian hacking of the elections and various other BS… now Flynn has to resign after he was announced as one of two Trump team members who were helping devise a way to restructure the agency. The CIA was on record as supporting Killary for president and on record opposing Trump’s candidacy. If all of that was staged, to what end was it staged? What is the payoff?

  7. From the excellent Douglas Valentine book, “THE CIA AS ORGANIZED CRIME: How Illegal Operations Corrupt America and the World” on page 77 where Valentine is explaining the notorious Vietnam War era “Phoenix Program,” which was used to subdue and enslave the Vietnamese thru terror, murder and torture.

    http://claritypress.com/Valentine.html

    “These things included rape, gang rape, rape using eels, snakes or hard objects, and rape followed by murder; “the Bell Telephone Hour” rendered by attaching wires to the genitals or other sensitive parts of the body; waterboarding; “the airplane,” in which a prisoner’s arms are tied behind the back and the rope looped over a hook on the ceiling suspending the prisoner in midair while he or she was beaten; beatings with a rubber hose or whip; and the use of police dogs to maul prisoners. All this and more occurred in PIC’s, one of which was run by former Congressman Rob Simmons (R-CT) while he was a CIA officer running the PIC in Phu Yen Province in 1972.”

    That’s our CIA, murdering, torturing, dealing drugs, terrorizing and pulling off False Flags and assassinating Presidents and heads of state since 1953.

    And now Americans are firmly in their sights. If things get too far out of hand–according to the CIA–they’ll use tactical nukes to keep control, they would have no problem nuking Americans, anything to keep their power.

    • Americans have been in the sights of these assholes before. Mental patients for their testing in the 60s. Bringing in heroin in the late 60s and crack in the 80s. These folks have already done a lot of damage to US citizens without remorse or shame.

    • Actually, they have been doing this kind of thing- assassinations, death squads, torture, etc. since 1944. They called themselves the OSS then but it was exactly the same people using exactly the same methods.
      Angleton, Helms, Gottleib – the worst of the worst- all were in the OSS.

  8. One thing’s for sure. The self-appointed “masters of the universe” have gone into high gear with the divide and conquer strategy. They want us to have a civil war so we’ll wipe out most of our population, and then they figure the fewer numbers will be more controllable.

    Did anybody analyzed this video? How fake is it?

    • I haven’t seen any analysis of this video, if you do, please post, thank you!

      • Of course BATMAN –

        WAR IS BIG BUSINESS!

        You’ve heard of the DLC Democrats, like Al Franken and Keith Ellison?

        They’re the money, pro-war side who wanted to take big defense campaign donations, and the leadership council who voted to arm/train Al Nusra, and invade/ bomb Syria/Iraq. Biden, Hillary, and Kerry are DLC Democrats who always wanted more war in every opportunity and voted accordingly.

        But fronting for the pro-war, DLC Democrat Globalists are astroturf phony ‘progressives’ like Norman Soloman who took calls for an hour on CSPAN this morning, pushing his “rootsaction.org” impeachment of Trump agenda, and article called ‘The Long Road to Impeach Trump Just Got Shorter’at Common Dreams.

        How the New World Order “Globalists” Are Dividing Americans

        By Joachim Hagopian

        “Through this polarizing, extremely sobering process, a diabolical plan to willfully turn US citizens against each other has been co-designed to create a dangerously toxic culture of growing distrust, fear and paranoia while simultaneously increasing authoritarian tyranny and control. The feds’ wars of terror brought demonstrably home to roost has splintered Americans into two disparate, conflicting camps. As a result, a fear-driven, obedient, brainwashed, dumbed down and docile citizenry of sheeple that simply do what their told, following the governing authority’s methodical conditioning, brainwashing and programmed social engineering accompanied by pressured demands toward hyper-vigilance bordering on paranoia, believing that increasing numbers of their fellow Americans are subversively lurking nearby as their homegrown terrorist enemy.”
