Deep State Deep Sixed

Thanks to Wikileaks biggest bombshell to date, The CIA is under the microscope. Ignore what the Mockingbird media has to say
Zero Hedge offers up this…
A total of 8,761 documents have been published as part of ‘Year Zero’, the first in a series of leaks the whistleblower organization has dubbed ‘Vault 7.’ WikiLeaks said that ‘Year Zero’ revealed details of the CIA’s “global covert hacking program,” including “weaponized exploits” used against company products including “Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.”
WikiLeaks tweeted the leak, which it claims came from a network inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.
Among the more notable disclosures which, if confirmed, “would rock the technology world“, the CIA had managed to bypass encryption on popular phone and messaging services such as Signal, WhatsApp and Telegram. According to the statement from WikiLeaks, government hackers can penetrate Android phones and collect “audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.”
The FAQ section of the release, shown below, provides further details on the extent of the leak, which was “obtained recently and covers through 2016”. The time period covered in the latest leak is between the years 2013 and 2016, according to the CIA timestamps on the documents themselves. Secondly, WikiLeaks has asserted that it has not mined the entire leak and has only verified it, asking that journalists and activists do the leg work.
Among the various techniques profiled by WikiLeaks is “Weeping Angel”, developed by the CIA’s Embedded Devices Branch (EDB), which infests smart TVs, transforming them into covert microphones. After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a ‘Fake-Off’ mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on. In ‘Fake-Off’ mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server.
And in an update from the Gateway Pundit, it looks like former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in a major political move when she refused to check on all Clinton activity, signed off on all FISA wiretap applications to go after President Trump.
According to ABC, all applications to the FISA Court were signed off on by the Attorney General and therefore if any applications were processed in the past year, they were signed off on by Loretta Lynch. This means that Lynch signed off on any requests for wire tapping President Donald Trump during the Presidential race. This is disheartening knowing that she released a video over the weekend calling for the need for more marching, blood and death on the streets. This also means that she chose not to investigate the Clinton Foundation for illegal activities but rather signed an application to wire tap President Trump.
And also former Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook KNEW about these taps. And all these allegations could bring back the case of author Michael Hastings, whose car was reportedly hacked by the CIA, thus leading to his death.
Somehow, this needs to reignite another Church Committee, as in the lated Idaho DEMOCRATIC Senator Frank Church, whom in 1975, took the CIA to task when it came to the media…or Operation Mockingbird.
And to those who think this is all new, you do not know your history. From C-Span a few years ago, a 1975 meeting of the Church Committee, looked into…domestic spying.
And in Senator Church’s honor, this blogger calls upon Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to lead this. Infowars reports Paul saying “the American people will ‘live in fear’ of their communications being intercepted.”
“I think the most important thing that I’m hearing is that private conversations between our officials, our president, NSA are being monitored and then leaked,” Paul said.
