I post this picture because one of former President Obama's Defense civilian staff members, Evelyn Farkas, a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, openly admitted on the MSNBC Morning Joe program on March 2d that she was actively encouraging her colleagues and associates to spread intelligence about the Trump campaign that she received after she left the Pentagon. She didn't tell them what it was, she merely cited her opinion about its relevance and importance. This has created a huge personal problem for her, and rightly so. How did she know about it and why was she so willing to pass it around? She wasn't an intelligence employee, nor should she have had access to the information, not only while she was in the Pentagon but after she left the agency.
A Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense is somewhat akin to a management official below the high levels of leadership in a large bureaucracy like the Pentagon. So if she had such information, who else was in possession of it? And even if she didn't actually have the information, she was talking about "it" which means something was floating around in government circles outside of valid intelligence entities. Why?
Leaking of intelligence material is a fraud and a felony and there have always been problems with it. But when President Obama, by Executive Order on January 2, 2017 (only eighteen days before leaving office), opened the door to wider leaks by allowing the passing of NSA material to sixteen other intelligence agencies without the necessary scrubbing of personal identities of innocent collateral citizens in the material, the snowball began in earnest. In conjunction with this action, volumes of leaks involving Trump Administration nominees and supporters started showing up in mass and with it a situation truly worthy of a Deep State novel. Can you imagine what the media would have said if this had happened back in 2009 while President-Elect Obama was waiting to be sworn in? They'd still be talking about it.
And speaking of the hypocrisy of it all, why is everyone so concerned about Trump based on rumor and unnamed sources when no one seemed to care a bit about the State Department approval of a major uranium sale (nearly 20% of America's uranium capacity) to the Russians by then Secretary Clinton which resulted in a fat donation to the Clinton Foundation? And why did Obama open those floodgates of access to intelligence material just before leaving office in the first place, knowing full well that the agencies are full of leaks? And, lastly, why is Valerie Jarrett now ensconced in the Barack Mansion less than three blocks from the White House? Are all of these things coincidental? I think not. Let's get real, folks. If you want to look into things, you have to look at both ends of the political spectrum, not just one.
My hunch is that it might very well be that the Deep State knows that Trump is on to them and they see him as a major threat to their continued often unconstitutional existence. I'm not saying it's so, I'm just saying I want to know. Readers, you should want to know, too. It's about your family, your nation and our very way of life.
This story is going to stick around for some time to come and there are many more questions. But just think about one important thing. If this was your life, would you want to put on the guilty hat based upon shoddy reporting and fraudulent data gathering? Of course not. And that's the whole reason for bringing it up. Freedom is a big deal and actions like this threaten its very existence. If it happens to a candidate who becomes President of the United States, with the leaks continuing after his election, don't think at some point it can't happen to you. Indeed, it can. It's time to get the intelligence gathering within constitutional control.
