Robert Steele: Is Blaming the Russians a Desperate Attempt to Cover Up US Intelligence Community Routine Spying on US Politicians Including the President?

Ethics, Government
Robert David Steele

Completely apart from Deep State – Two-Party Tyranny – Wall Street machinations against Donald Trump, the legitimately elected next President of the United States of America, the current efforts of the US Intelligence Community to blame the Russians for hacking the election are in my view a desperate attempt to distract everyone from the fact that both the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have been spying routinely on all US politicians and political organizations for over a decade.

There is no presidential or congressional communication or computer that is safe from this illegal unconstitutional treasonous spying on our public officials — including judges — by our own intelligence organizations.

If and when Donald Trump decides to focus on this, he could legitimately seek to engage a new Director of National Intelligence (DNI) whose explicit task is to cut the secret intelligence world by two thirds, while re-storing counterintelligence and ethics and creating the Open Source Agency I have long championed against the most virulent opposition (CIA calls me “open sores,” thank you very much).

The bottom line is that I can provide 95% of what the President and the Cabinet need to know for $2B a year — we do not need more than $25B a year for the focused secret sources and methods needed for the last 5%. The DNI position should be abolished — along with two-thirds of the secret archipelago, by 2020.

The below quotes are from Russ Tice, one of the most vocal NSA whistle-blowers, speaking on the record in 2013:

They [the NSA] went after [spied on] — and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things — they went after [spied on] high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the — and judicial.

But they went after other ones, too. They went after lawyers and law firms. All kinds of–heaps of lawyers and law firms. They went after judges. One of the judges [Alioto] is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand. Two are former FISA court judges. They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House–their own people. They went after antiwar groups. They went after U.S. international–U.S. companies that that do international business, you know, business around the world. They went after U.S. banking firms and financial firms that do international business.

Now here’s the big one. I haven’t given you any names. This was is summer of 2004. One of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with, with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator from Illinois. You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives right now, would you? It’s a big white house in Washington, DC. That’s who they went after. And that’s the president of the United States now.

CIA has been caught penetrating Congressional computers, and Susan Lindauer, among others, has been quite vocal about how CIA runs “agents” among Congressional staff against their own bosses — the elected Members of Congress.

It is my personal view that the time has come to dismantle the US Intelligence Community as it is now structured. I recommend the following to the next DNI subject to the concurrence of the President, the National Security Advisor, and the Senate and House Select Committees on Intelligence.

01 Create the Open Source Agency as the primary vehicle for providing decision-support to the President and to the principal Cabinet officials as well as subordinates responsible for strategy, policy, operations, and acquisition across all mission areas. Inform the CIA that they are not only not in charge of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) but they also have no standing to prevent anyone else from developing overt Human Intelligence (HUMINT) sources and methods. A new Cyber-Security and Computer Algorithm Center will manage an completely open source private-public partnership to make US communications and computing impervious to spying by anyone including our own rogue intelligence elements; this will eventually make US communications and computing products the “must have” alternative to everything else that is totally compromised by their own governments as ours have been compromised by NSA and complicit CEOs wantonly violating their fiduciary responsibilities.

02 Collaborate with the SSCI/HPSCI to reconceptualize national intelligence as a “Smart Nation,” much as Congressman Rob Simmons (R-CT-02) and I devised in 2000, the point being to assure all stakeholders that intelligence reform can be job and revenue neutral from district to district. A “soft landing” for all dismissed employees will be created with a massive new investment in US education, public intelligence, and research decision support spread across all fifty states. The elimination of all contractors will be a four year goal — intelligence is an inherent responsibility of government, a public service, and contractors are anathema at all levels across all functions.

03 Announce the intent of restoring the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) position with a difference — the DCI shall be the absolute authority — inclusive of budget, personnel, and security — for all classified intelligence collection, processing, and analysis, as the DNI winds down that office with a goal of officially closing the Office of the DNI by 2020.

04 Transfer the functional 20% of from NSA and the functional 20% from the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) to the CIA, into two new Directorates; terminate the dysfunctional 80% of both those agencies and close the Cyber-Command immediately.

05 Transfer the functional 20% of the National Geospatial Agency (NGA) to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) as recommended by my colleague Arnie Donahue of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA), himself previously the C4I czar for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Terminate the dysfunctional 80% of the NGA, returning all military personnel short of retirement to their parent services.

06 Double the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) while conducting a ruthless house-cleaning within the FBI to eliminate all religious, financial, ideological, and pedophile traitors now compromising the integrity of the FBI — then turn it on, full force, against all individuals in Congress and the Executive who are agents of a foreign power or taking bribes in return for influence peddling.

07 Expand the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to integrate one third of the best-qualified personnel from each of the four service intelligence centers, which should then be closed with a dismissal of all contractors and redirection of dismissed civilians into the soft landing program. One third of DIA will deployable — while all bases overseas should be closed as part of the president's new Grand Strategy, when US forces deploy, they should deploy — as General Mike Flynn intended — with a full complement of all-source intelligence analysts who are fit and can march (or die).
