“It’s unclear whether the counterintelligence investigation into Trump remains open. An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment.”
For the Facebook visitors: Please, look up the links in text format and on the Google also, because the stupid greedy Facebook does not publish the direct links. Visit all my blogs and sites: see the links at http://newsandtimes.org/
The Facebook’s editors and their system of CENSORSHIP are the absolute retards, and that is exactly what the New Abwehr and (their long time agent) Putin wanted: to restrict the freedom of information on the Internet. It appears that the FBI is the part of this CENSORSHIP, “for security reasons”, ostensibly; but in fact because The (Stupid) Dogs just cannot resist poking their bulbous noses into everything that is able to excite their doggy attention. The Stupid Facebook rejects my posts on the ground that they “do not meet the community standards”, while these posts are just the reprints, the copies of the links to the mainstream press articles from the Google searches. The Facebook runs scared and crazy, the FBI terrorized them to death, and into the construction of the virtual Panopticon Observation Prison cum Jewish Mother (and not the best version of this phenomenon) + glassy-eyed Jewish Accountant pretending to be the Face Of The World and Mr. Very Sociable himself. The problem is not that those people are Jewish, the problem is that they are idiots, and that they try, wittingly or not, to turn the others into their idiots-robots too. Facebook is the very retarded “social marketplace” for their masses of the retarded customers.
Und ziz iz my Opini’on. When the Facebook rejects postings because they don’t “fit the community standards”, it should be specified, which of the “communities”, and which of the “standards”. There are so many of both of them.
The question is, my dear America: why do you allow these entities and these people to decide how and with whom you should communicate, what news you should consume, and what kind of friends you should make?
Isn’t it much too much? Isn’t it one of the roots of our current troubles? The Society which limits the freedom of expressions and communications on its electronic “agoras“, such as Facebook and Twitter (and others), robs itself of the wealth, richness, and potential uses of information, when it is properly selected and organized. The Society which restricts the opportunities for communications and commercializes them (quite often excessively), as the Facebook does, robs itself of its history, literature, arts, education, culture, and journalism. It restricts the natural social intercourse and historical progress.
Facebook has to be broken up, just like AT&T was, they became the dangerous social media and communications (!!! – that’s what is important) monopoly. They accumulated too much power, and this process continues and expands into all areas and aspects of the society’s functions, including its practices of politics. It is not the exaggeration to say that the modern politics are transformed by the Facebook, and this fact has the enormous significance.
It also appears that Facebook in fact prostituted itself for political purposes, it was making advertising money on politics. Facebook is more than willing to sell itself to any bidder. Some of us say that they betrayed America and her values, just like Manafort, and his operating arm, the Cambridge Analytica.
Replace Facebook with the non for profit business model, make it better, truly social, and maybe even “socialist”, and “free”, in all senses. It would fit it to the T.
“The profit motives and drivers in the Information field, just like in Medicine, are inappropriate, dysfunctional, and counterproductive. The State should carry the expenses, which are minimal, if not just symbolic, for the maintenance of the Social Media Platforms. If the traditional media justified their charges by the expenses on ink and paper (with expenditures on good thinking and ideas in the very distant from those costs numbers), digital costs simply cannot justified at all at this stage and age. The Social media users build their castles in the air, and the owners of the Social media companies collect the rent. In very nice and tangible real life pennies. The relative value of the good thinking and ideas went up, and the state should protect, defend, and nurture them, for it is them that drive the economic and social progress. The current “free for all” – “Free Enterprise” system breeds crooks, swindlers, liars, and psychopaths, and the current troubles demonstrate this vividly. We as the humans are better than that.” The FBI is the second part of this explosive equation which makes a prescription for the potential disaster of dictatorship.
Investigate the investigators! Save America! Reform the FBI now! This is my mantra for the last several years, and I am not tired of repeating it.
FBI is a very sick, Mafia and Nazi style type of the organisation staffed with shrewd but brainless and soulless psychopaths. It has to be studied and researched in depth.
The FBI was thoroughly penetrated by the Nazis – the Canaris’ Abwehr, and the Mobsters a long time ago, even before the WW2, and much more so after it, according to my impressions.
“A directive issued by the Chief of intelligence Division of the German
High Command, Admiral Canaris of March 15, 1944 part of which follows here casts a
suspicious eye towards Nazi intrigue.
“There is great fear in the USA of Bolshevism. The opposition against
Roosevelt’s alliance with Stalin grows constantly. Our chances for success are good, if
we succeed to stir up influential circles against Roosevelt’s policy. This can be done
through clever pieces of information, or by references to unsuspicious neutral
ecclesiastical contact men.
We have at our command in the United States efficient contacts, which have
been carefully kept up even during the war. The campaign of hatred stirred up by
Roosevelt and the Jews against everything German has been temporarily silenced the
pro-German bloc in the USA. However, there is every hope that this situation will be
completely changed within a few months. If the Republicans succeed in defeating
Roosevelt in the coming election, it will greatly influence American conduct of the
war towards us.
The KO-leaders abroad and their staffs have innumerable opportunities of
constantly referring to Roosevelt’s hate policy. They must use in this campaign all the
existing contacts and they should try to open new channels. We must point to the
danger Germany may be forced to cooperate with Russia. The greatest caution has to
be observed in all talks and negotiations by those who, as “anti-Nazis” maintain
contact with the enemy. When fulfilling missions, they have to comply strictly with
The above document now casts all such leaks and reports in the press appearing
in the later stages of the war as Nazi intrigue or propaganda. As shown in the
previous chapters the Nazis had willing accomplices in Congress, the military, and
the press and industrial leaders. The reader also should be alerted to the reference to
that if the Republican Party could win the election they would alter the American
conduct of the war. The previous chapters have detailed the collaboration between
the Nazis and the Republican Party.”
The FBI’s sick, unlawful, low, cynical, gypsy mentality type “secrets” and “mysteries” have to be exposed and revealed. This stupid, brainless, ever hungry, dysfunctional, ugly Beast feeds on America and her people. They are worse than KGB and Gestapo, and they are stupider too. Their “hair analysts” gave the wrong testimonies and sent the innocent people to prison simply because they wanted to “make the grade”, to please their superiors, and to move up the ladder. Read about it, including my blogs and sites. They have to be destroyed, abolished, and those who deserve it should be prosecuted themselves. I could not and still cannot believe that all this, including their infamous COINTELPRO “operations” were happening in America! And in addition to all that, they are simply incompetent and are not able to carry out their duties properly.
I also think that the FBI is the major threat to the sanity and the mental health of the American people.
In a society where one half informs on the other half, there could not be trust and the healthy interpersonal relationships. FBI, with its crude and outdated Nazi-KGB tactics, and inefficient security wise at that, undermines the very structure and the texture of the modern American society. They function as the “vice squad” – the moral police, and as the political police, despite all their half-hearted protestations. These two areas are easy for them to understand (or so they think), especially “sex”, and the little nincompoops impose and enforce their norms (primitive, police and “law and order” oriented, largely Catholic, and the product of the lower to middle class mentality) on the rest of society. This is the road to social degeneration. The FBI and the similar structures and agencies should understand their proper and complex role in our society. They feel that they should prove their worth to society while they have very little of it, and if anything, are detrimental to the healthy functioning of the society. As strange as it might sound (or not “strange” at all), the sophisticated, civil and civilized, proper electronic surveillance should replace the obviously sick, pathological by its nature, the institute and practice of informants, which comes from the old historical European traditions and was perfected by Abwehr. The FBI “COINTELPRO specialists” literally and deliberately drive you crazy, and those very talanted artistic nincompoops sincerely believe, in accordance with their limited intellectual capacities, that this is exactly their job to do. They became the inspiring model for the many monstrous “secret security services” around the world, and lately for the Israeli private spying firms who developed and expanded ad criminal absurdum the COINTELPRO tactics and techniques. Read about those firms activities and interference in 2016 Elections. The Russian interference was well demonstrated by the Mueller Investigation. In fact, there were many different and various INTERFERENCES (!), which is nothing new historically and conceptually: German – Russian – Ukrainian – Israeli – Oligarchs – Arab – Global Russian Jewish Israeli Mafia, and ultimately by the New Abwehr.
Undoubtedly, it was also the interference, largely invisible, by the FBI, and also to be exact, many various “interferences”. The FBI cannot be allowed to rule this society under any circumstances, they will turn it into the police state (the term “deep state” is the alternative); and this is exactly what they are trying to do, by their various ways and means. The retired FBI agents play a role in it: there is no such thing as the “retired FBI agent”. It is a big question if this aspect was addressed in Mueller Investigation, and how adequately it was addressed. The FBI’s structure and mentality are of the same hired thugs of the Pinkerton Agency, their amoral but practical mommy. The problem is that the FBI acquired or accumulated the monopoly on Police Powers which can be quite formidable in any culture. The today society appears to outgrow the need for these types of the ugly and perverse monopolies on Power; on the Political Power, to be specific. This monopoly also has to be broken. The Multilayered Model of the Intelligence Services, with the overlapping responsibilities, appears to be the best, historically formed alternative.
And we better research and investigate all of the above, my dear America! We should not forget that in Nazi Germany the road to dictatorship was through the elections.
After I posted this tirade, the stupid FBI panicked and blocked my websites. They managed to brake into The FBI News Review and messed it up. Thank you, the Great American Democracy and the Great American Freedom of Speech! Thank you Obama, and the rest of you!
Now my sites are up again; visit them and read my posts and pages!
FBI HAS TO BE ABOLISHED, AND THE CRIMINALS IN THEIR MIDST HAVE TO BE PROSECUTED RELENTLESSLY!
But first, they have to be investigated, and very thoroughly.
My Follow-up Opinion: All Social Media Companies should be literally regulated to death (No Advertising and Fairness for All), and then nationalized on a global scale. The profit motives and drivers in the Information field, just like in Medicine, are inappropriate, dysfunctional, and counterproductive. The State should carry the expenses, which are minimal, if not just symbolic, for the maintenance of the Social Media Platforms. If the traditional media justified their charges by the expenses on ink and paper (with expenditures on good thinking and ideas in the very distant from those costs numbers), digital costs simply cannot justified at all at this stage and age. The Social media users build their castles in the air, and the owners of the Social media companies collect the rent. In very nice and tangible real life pennies. The relative value of the good thinking and ideas went up, and the state should protect, defend, and nurture them, for it is them that drive the economic and social progress. The current “free for all” – “Free Enterprise” system breeds crooks, swindlers, liars, and psychopaths, and the current troubles demonstrate this vividly. We as the humans are better than that.
Appendix 2 Captured Documents Captured Nazi Documents: Directive of the German High Command on Political Warfare in the U.S.A
The following directive was issued by the Chief of the Intelligence Division of the German High Command, Admiral Walter Wilhelm Canaris, in 1944.
The document lays bare the basic German strategy of scaring the U.S.A. with Bolshevism but —at the same time—recommends a long-range policy of RussoGerman collaboration. SECRET STATE MATTER OKW-Abwehr March 15, 1944 At a meeting of the representatives of the Foreign Office, the Security Division, (“SD”) and the Department of Defense, (“Abwehr”), the following resolutions were adopted for unified action by all our agents in foreign countries: I. Utilize to the fullest extent all available possibilities in neutral and enemy countries, in order to support our military efforts with political and propaganda campaigns. 2. Our goal is to crush the enemy’s plan whose object it is to destroy forever the German Reich militarily, economically, and culturally. The Nazi Hydra In Fascist America — 372 — The new regulations put into effect by the political leaders for the dissolution and disintegration of the enemy bloc should be carried out more intensely. We must do our utmost to create a state of confusion and distrust among our enemies. Such a state of disunity would enable us to sue for a quick separate peace with either side. While it is true that the efforts made in that direction have failed so far due to the implacable hate policy of Roosevelt and Churchill it does not mean that some day, under different conditions, the unnatural front of our enemies could not be broken. Roosevelt’s electoral defeat this year could have immeasurable political consequences. The political and military leaders are of the opinion that Germany cannot expect any mercy from the Soviets; on the contrary, should the war take a turn for the worse, we must assume that the Slavs will do everything in order to retaliate against the harsh treatment we have inflicted upon them. In spite of everything, no effort should be spared to stir up, through carefully directed propaganda, political animosity inside the Anglo-Saxon countries which would enrage the Soviets to such a degree that, as a consequence, they would welcome a chance to conclude a separate peace with Germany. In the event of a negotiated peace, or should we be defeated, Germany would have everything to gain-in the long run-by joining the East. Right now, the chances for a separate peace with the West are a little better, especially if we succeed, through our propaganda campaign and our confidential channels, to convince the enemy that Roosevelt’s policy of “unconditional surrender” drives the German people towards Communism. There is great fear in the U.S.A. of Bolshevism. The opposition against Roosevelt’s alliance with Stalin grows constantly. Our chances for success are good, if we succeed to stir up influential circles against Roosevelt’s policy. This can be done through clever pieces of information, or by references to unsuspicious neutral ecclesiastical contact men. We have at our command in the United States efficient contacts which have been carefully kept up even during the war. The campaign of hatred stirred up by Roosevelt and the Jews against everything German has temporarily silenced the pro-German bloc in the U.S.A. However, there is every hope that this situation will be completely changed within a few months. If the Republicans succeed in defeating Roosevelt in the coming presidential election, it would greatly influence the American conduct of war towards us. The KO-leaders abroad and their staffs have innumerable opportunities of constantly referring to Roosevelt’s hate policy. They must use in this campaign all the existing contacts and they should try to open up new channels. We must point to the danger that Germany may be forced to cooperate with Russia. The greatest caution has to be observed in all talks and negotiations by those who, as “antiNazis,” maintain contact with the enemy. When fulfilling missions, they have to comply strictly with instructions. German Plan for Psychological Warfare in the U.S.A. The Nazi Hydra In Fascist America — 373 — (Memorandum from Dr. Colin Ross to the German Foreign Office, 1943.) On July 27, 1943, the German Foreign Office expert on the U.S.A., the geo. politician Dr. Colin Ross, suggested in a fifteen page memorandum a “Plan for an Ideological Campaign in the United States.” Recognizing Germany’s inability to bring the war to a victorious end, Dr. Colin Ross proposed the immediate implementation of a carefully planned psychological warfare to undermine the anticipated U.S. military victory. Dr. Ross regarded American public opinion as the weakest link because the American people seemed especially susceptible to scare propaganda hinting that a defeated Germany would join the ranks of Bolshevism. The memorandum, which was addressed to the German Secretary of State in the Foreign Office, von Steengracht, became the guidepost for Germany’s highly successful blackmail diplomacy in post-war America. Here follow some significant parts of the memorandum. PLAN FOR AN IDEOLOGICAL CAMPAIGN IN THE UNITED STATES The Prerequisites for psychological warfare 1. Analyze the spiritual temper of world public opinion. 2. Evaluate correctly the ideological weapons available. 3. Put before the eyes of the world a strategic concept which will impress not only our own people, but also the neutrals and our enemies. 4. Select the most effective tactical methods for the accomplishment of 5. Co-ordinate the ideological campaign in support of our military and economic warfare. The more the prospects for outright military victory diminish, the more urgent becomes the necessity for all-out psychological warfare. In analyzing this problem we can disregard completely the possibility of total victory through military might alone, because in such a case psychological warfare is superfluous. However, in the case of total military collapse, we must continue the struggle by means of psychological warfare until the day arrives when weapons can speak again. In my opinion it is important to point to this ultima ratio now and emphasize it more than ever before. Psychological warfare will prove especially successful in the U.S.A. where many groups (weite Kreise) are fed up with the war. . . . Under all circumstances we should prepare ourselves for the worst, not in a spirit of defeatism, but in order to cope more effectively with defeatism in the hour of collapse. It is important that we see to it that our enemies, especially the Americans, should not bask themselves in the sun of victory or that they enjoy the role of being the liberators of Europe. Therefore, it is necessary to set up a far- flung organization in every country which, under enemy occupation, must carry on the task from the underground. We must do everything possible to impress upon American public opinion that after the liberation of Europe they will become involved in an endless maze of insoluble contradictions. However great their sacrifices may be they will end up in a blind alley exactly as it happened in 1918 under Wilson’s grandiose planning. We have to use the argument that if the enemy succeeds in stamping out The Nazi Hydra In Fascist America — 374 — “Fascism” or “Nazism” there will remain only Bolshevism. Thus, a Germany threatened by the Anglo-Americans with dismemberment, will throw herself completely into the arms of the Soviets, and in that way will make Bolshevism unconquerable. This is the time to make up the balance sheet and to start with large scale preparation in order to meet the coming invasion. Our defense must not remain limited to military measures alone but must employ every available weapon of psychological warfare. The ideological offensive is the order of the day. American Documents: Germany’s Preparation for a Comeback On March 30, 1945 the U.S. State Department announced that “reliable information collected by Allied Governments clearly indicates that the Nazi regime in Germany has developed well arranged post-war plans for the perpetuation of Nazi doctrines and domination. Some of these plans have already been put into operation and others are ready to be launched…

WASHINGTON — Special counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal investigation may be over, but the FBI’s efforts to assess and counter Russian efforts to influence the U.S. political system — including the Trump administration — is continuing, current and former U.S. officials say.
The FBI and other intelligence agencies are pursuing a counterintelligence effort to thwart Russian influence operations in the U.S. and stymie an anticipated Russian effort to interfere in the 2020 election, the officials tell NBC News.
As part of that mission, analysts will continue to drill down on exactly how the Russians interfered in the 2016 election, whether any Americans helped them unwittingly, and whether any American continues to be compromised by Russia, experts say.
These are different questions than whether crimes were committed, which is what Mueller explored in his 448-page report. Mueller’s report is silent on some of the key counterintelligence issues raised in his probe. It doesn’t mention, for example, the counterintelligence investigation the FBI opened into the president — an inquiry former acting director Andrew McCabe said was designed to examine whether he was compromised by Russia. Nor does the report cite the counterintelligence briefing the Trump campaign is said to have received from the FBI, warning that Russia and other adversaries would seek to infiltrate the campaign.
“The fact that it’s not present in the report tells me the ball is now and remains in the court of the FBI and the intelligence community,” said Frank Figliuzzi, an NBC News contributor and former head of counterintelligence at the FBI.
It’s unclear whether the counterintelligence investigation into Trump remains open. An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment.
Counterintelligence is also an issue the House Intelligence Committee will explore, said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., its chairman. The committee has requested an intelligence briefing on the Mueller investigation but has yet to receive a response, according to a congressional source.
“That’s very important for our committee as well as the Financial Services Committee to make sure there’s no financial leverage or other leverage that the Russians or the Gulf or anyone else have over the president of the United States,” Schiff told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Thursday.
In explaining his prosecution decisions, Mueller’s report explores how a Russian intelligence operation sought to help Donald Trump get elected and how the Russian government later tried to influence his transition team and nascent administration. Mueller found no provable criminal conspiracy in those interactions.
But the report conspicuously avoids making an assessment about whether any of that conduct harmed national security. It scarcely mentions counterintelligence, and it doesn’t say whether Mueller looked for financial ties between Trump and Russians or determined whether Russia has any leverage over the president or any member of his team.
In the one short section devoted to counterintelligence, the Mueller report makes clear that the issue of thwarting Russian influence went beyond the criminal probe.
For the last year, FBI counterintelligence analysts who were not working on the criminal investigation were embedded in Mueller’s office, sending written summaries of foreign intelligence and counterintelligence to FBI headquarters and relevant field offices, the report says.
“From its inception, the office recognized that its investigation could identify foreign intelligence and counterintelligence information relevant to the FBI’s broader national security mission,” the report says.
Much of that information is not contained in the report, which was designed to summarize prosecution decisions. Left unsaid is that much of that information is also classified.
The sort of information that might have been included in those summaries — and which does not appear in the redacted report — might include details about Vladimir Putin’s role in the election interference operation, or the relationship between Russian intelligence and the St. Petersburg troll farm that manipulated U.S. social media.
“In fairness to Mueller, they were operating under rules built for a traditional criminal investigation,” said Joshua Geltzer, a former senior attorney at the National Security Council under Presidents Obama and Trump.
“Those regulations had at least a somewhat different paradigm in mind. Counterintelligence investigations are by their nature sensitive and classified. It’s not clear that there is much more that could or should be said publicly. But I do think the question of whether there are folks acting in ways contrary to our national interest is at least as important as the question of who is charged with a crime.”
“President Trump may claim ‘exoneration’ on a narrowly defined criminal coordination charge. But a counterintelligence investigation can yield something even more important: an intelligence assessment of how likely it is that someone — in this case, the president — is acting, wittingly or unwittingly, under the influence of or in collaboration with a foreign power,” they write. “Was Donald Trump a knowing or unknowing Russian asset, used in some capacity to undermine our democracy and national security?”
A person on Trump’s legal team, who declined to be identified because he was not authorized to talk to reporters, told NBC News that it was ridiculous to suggest that Trump is compromised by Russia after Mueller cleared him of conspiracy.
But the Mueller report seems to keep that question in play by explicitly stating that the Trump campaign and the Russian government had a shared interest.
“The investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts,” the report says.
After the election, the report says, “Russian government officials and prominent Russian businessmen began trying to make inroads into the new administration. The most senior levels of the Russian government encouraged these efforts.”
And members of the incoming Trump administration, including Mike Flynn and Jared Kushner, greeted the efforts with open arms, the report shows. Trump, for his part, continually expressed his desire to improve relations with Russia, and he said he would examine lifting certain sanctions.
Geltzer and other foreign policy experts have long said that Trump’s favorable view of Russian President Vladimir Putin is so out of step with his own party, and seems so contrary to American interests, that it raises counterintelligence questions. When Trump proclaimed during last year’s Helsinki summit he accepted Putin’s claim that the Russians didn’t meddle in the 2016 election, those questions deepened, Geltzer said.
These are not criminal questions that can be resolved in a court of law, experts say.
“Often in the worlds of intelligence it’s about shades of gray that don’t approach certainty,” Geltzer said.
As part of its counterintelligence mission, the FBI makes assessments, including assessments about whether a particular American is acting as an agent of a foreign power, wittingly or not.
The next step is mitigation, which usually happens secretly. A foreigner can be placed under surveillance, or deported. A U.S. government official can be deprived of her security clearance or fired.
“I have been involved in cases where the objective was to determine whether a government official was playing for the other side or unwittingly duped or co-opted,” Figliuzzi said. “The objective is to neutralize — detect, deter and defeat the threat.”
But, Figliuzzi said, “deterring it and defeating it becomes problematic if it’s the president of the U.S.”
