Biggest Nunes Memo Revelations Have Little to Do With its Content

February 3, 2018 Covert Geopolitics

The most important revelations of the Nunes Memo relate not to its content, but the political establishment’s response to its release, argues Caitlin Johnstone.
By Caitlin Johnstone
It’s fitting that the ever-tightening repetitive loops of America’s increasingly schizophrenic partisan warfare finally hit peak shrillness and skyrocketed into a white noise singularity on Groundhog Day. Right now, we’re right about at the part of the movie where Bill Murray is driving over a cliff in a pickup truck with a large rodent behind the wheel.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., speaks to reporters at the U.S. Capitol on March 22, 2017, in Washington, DC.
If you only just started paying attention to U.S. politics in 2017 what I’m about to tell you will blow your mind, so you might want to sit down for this: believe it or not, there was once a time when both of America’s mainstream political parties weren’t screeching every single day that there was news about to break any minute now which would obliterate the other party forever. No Russiagate, no Nunes memo, no Rachel Maddow red yarn graphs, no Sean Hannity “tick tock,” no nothing. People screaming that the end is nigh and it’s all about to come crashing down were relegated to street corners and the occasional Infowars appearance, not practicing mainstream political punditry for multimillion dollar salaries on MSNBC and Fox News.
I’m not saying it’s a bad thing that Americans are starting to look critically at the power dynamics in their country, but the partisan filters they’ve pulled over their eyes are causing mass confusion and delusion. Now everyone who questions the CIA is a Russian agent and the term “deep state” suddenly means “literally anyone who doesn’t like Donald Trump.” Your take on the contents of the Nunes memo will put you in one of two radically different political dimensions depending on which mainstream cult you’ve subscribed to, and it will cause you to completely miss the point of the entire ordeal.
The part of the memo that has everyone talking today reads as follows: “Furthermore, Deputy Director McCabe testified before the Committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information.”
This refers to a surveillance warrant requested by the FBI’s then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court seeking permission to spy on the communications of Carter Page, a member of the 2016 Trump campaign. The controversy revolves around the claim that this surveillance warrant would never have even been requested if not for the clearly biased, Clinton-funded, and error-riddled Christopher Steele dossier which is acknowledged even by its former MI6 author to be 10 to 30 percent inaccurate.
Combine that with the fact that this has never been made clear to the public, and baby you’ve got yourself a scandal. The FBI knowingly using extremely tainted evidence from one presidential campaign to get permission to spy on another would indeed be a very big deal.
There are some problems with the “BOOM! Bigger than Watergate!” exclamations that pro-Trump partisans have been parading around about this, however. The first is that the memo is only an internal communication between Republican congressmen; it’s not a sworn testimony or legal transcript or anything legally binding. It’s basically just some Republican ideas about what happened. The assertions made therein are reportedly being hotly contested by Democrats with knowledge of the situation, which is in turn being disputed by Republicans.
Another thing putting a damper on the GOP’s “KABOOM!” parade is the fact that the memo’s contents are not even entirely new; CNN reported way back in April of last year that sources had informed them that the Steele dossier had been used to get a FISA warrant on the Trump campaign. Additionally, even if every single allegation in the memo is true, the revelations are still arguably far less earth shattering than the Edward Snowden revelations of 2013 exposing the NSA’s sprawling domestic espionage network, so the expectation that these less significant new revelations would cause a radical transformation in U.S. politics when the Snowden revelations did not seems highly unrealistic.
Nonetheless, there have been some extremely important revelations as a result of this memo; they just haven’t come from the contents of the memo itself. In the same way that cybersecurity analysts observe the metadata underlying hacked files rather than the contents of the files themselves, political analysts have been pointing out that a lot can be learned about the political establishment by looking at its response to the possibility of the memo’s release.
“Memo is clearly not a blockbuster. We can tell so by reading it. Which makes Dems’ frantic efforts to prevent anyone from reading it seem even more bizarre,” observed TYT’s Michael Tracey. “Veracity of memo’s claims aside, we were told that its release would undermine the rule of law. So, just checking: is the rule of law still in tact?” he added later.
“Now it is clear to all,” WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange tweeted. “The claims about how the ‘Nunes’ memo would destroy ‘national security’ were lies. Classification stickers are used by bureaucrats trying to obtain ‘political security’ for their cronies.”
“One effect of the memo – it’s an example of how extensively we overclassify information,” wrote National Review’s David French. “I’m highly dubious that any information disclosed threatens national security in any way, shape, or form. I’d be willing to bet the Dem response is similarly harmless. Release it.”
Indeed, both the FBI and high-profile Democrats have been claiming that the memo’s unredacted release would pose a national security threat, with California Congressman (and virulent Russiagater) Eric Swalwell going so far to call it “brainwashing.” A CNN panelist wandered completely off the paddock and suggested that yesterday may have been America’s last day as a democracy. Why were they all flipping out so hysterically over a release of information that plainly poses no threat to the American people?
In addition to Assange’s assertion that government secrecy has far less to do with national security than political security (a claim he has made before which seems to be proving correct time and time again), there’s the jarring question posed by Republican Congressman Thomas Massie: “who made the decision to withhold evidence of FISA abuse until after Congress voted to renew FISA program?”
Whoa, Nelly. Hang on. What is he talking about?
It would be understandable if you were unaware of the debate over the reauthorization of FISA surveillance which resulted in unconditional bipartisan approval last month – the mainstream media barely touched it. In point of fact, though, the very surveillance practices alleged to have been abused in this hotly controversial memo are the same which was waved through by both the House and the Senate, and by the very same people promoting the memo in many cases.
The McCabe testimony was in December. FISA was renewed in January. Why is all this just coming out now? If the Republicans truly believed that McCabe said what the memo claims he said, why wasn’t the public informed before their elected representatives renewed the intelligence community’s dangerously intrusive surveillance approval? Was this information simply forgotten about until after those Orwellian powers had been secured?
Of course not. Don’t be an idiot.
This makes the kicking, screaming, wailing and gnashing of teeth by the political establishment make a lot more sense, doesn’t it? Now suddenly we’re looking at a he-said, she-said partisan battle over an issue which can only be resolved with greater and greater transparency of more and more government documents, and we can all see where that’s headed. In their rush to win a partisan battle and shield their president from the ongoing Russiagate conspiracy theory, the Republicans may have exposed too much of the establishment foundation upon which both parties are built.
The term “deep state” does not mean “Democrats and Never-Trumpers” as Republican pundits would have you believe, nor does the term refer to any kind of weird, unverifiable conspiracy theory. The deep state is in fact not a conspiracy theory at all, but simply a concept used in political analysis for discussing the undeniable fact that unelected power structures exist in America, and that they tend to form alliances and work together in some sense.
There is no denying the fact that plutocrats, intelligence agencies, defense agencies and the mass media are both powerful and unelected, and there is no denying the fact that there are many convoluted and often conflicting alliances between them. All that can be debated is the manner and extent to which this is happening.
The deep state is America’s permanent government, the U.S. power structures that Americans don’t elect. These power structures plainly have a vested interest in keeping America’s Orwellian surveillance structures in place, as evidenced by the intelligence community’s menacingly urgent demand for FISA renewal back in December. If there’s any thread to be pulled that really could make waves in the way Official Washington (hat tip to the late Robert Parry) operates, it is in the plot holes between the bipartisan scramble toward unconditional surveillance renewal and the highly partisan battle over exposing the abuse of those very powers.
If we’re going to see a gap in the bars of our cages, that’s a great place to keep our eyes trained, so keep watching. Watch what happens in a partisan war where both parties have a simultaneous interest in revealing as little of the game as possible and exposing the other party. Things could get very interesting.

While the Eastern part of the world is busy creating a better world, the Western population are being continually distracted away from the real issues of the day. The mere release of the memo has nothing to do with the downfall of the Deep State.
If it did, the likes of Hillary Clinton would have been arrested already.
This is just another script that must be played.
It would take more than that to set the people free from the imperialist Deep State.  But the problem is, the people would just go back to sleep with the assumption that this is the beginning of the end for the Deep State.

THE MEMO Has Been Released - The Details and Denotations - Videos, Links, and Commentary

Biggest Nunes Memo Revelations Have Little to Do With its Content plus more Manila%2BFolder%2BDeclassified

We have waited for months on end to see evidence of the true motives of the FBI and other official agencies regarding their actions before and after the 2016 election season. We wanted to know whether or not the claims made by secret service members, by various, non-mainstream D.C. officials, and by President Trump himself were substantiated.

These claims alleged that government offices were corrupt and were working not to uphold the law itself, but were instead working for monetary interests to undermine the election and duties of a presidential candidate (both before and after his election). According to the recently declassified memorandum on these subjects, these claims appear to be true.

The social, political, and media aftermath of the 2016 election was turbulent, to say the very least. Aside from the consistent signs of media compromise, Washington and FBI officials were caught up in some very scandalous situations.

Adding to the confusion was a grossly bias and compromised corporate media that was suspected and later proven to be working for the financial powers that lost the 2016 election. As it turned out, it was not only the corporate media that was compromised by Clinton-friendly financial interests. According to multiple sources, it was multiple factions within the FBI, CIA, and various other government offices.

For these past months, the American people have been deceived into believing half-truths and in many cases, proven lies, about the Trump presidency. As virtually every tool of the divide-and-conquer, Hegelian dialect was used to foster hate for Trump, many Americans remained unaware of the fact. However, there were many who became very suspicious of the motives of the corporate media and the government offices within these matters.

It does appear that a number of issues have arisen since Trump's inauguration. However, the corporate media appears to have ignored these chronic issues until after Trump was elected. It was clear, even before Trumps inauguration, that the corporate media was predicting and even seemed to hope for the failure of the newly elected President Trump.

Despite our own personal opinion of the President, in civilized society, there is a certain code of conduct—for both citizens and government officials—for how we behave and how we treat elected officials. Not only were these standards grossly violated by citizens, by mainstream media, and by government offices alike for over a year straight, but multiple U.S. government offices were allegedly weaponized against their own Commander in Chief.

This is the memo itself which is proposed to hold the proof necessary to reveal the criminality of those who have seemingly betrayed the United States. Though this betrayal does appear to be factual, the entire story behind the memo has yet to reveal itself.

We may note the statement which reveals that the President holds the authority to classify and declassify any information he deems permanent to the benefit of the people. It appears that so far, President Trump has used this power to declassify the entirety of the JFK assassination information (according to reports), which opened the eyes of thousands of Americans to the true motives within corporate media and past administrations to deceive the American public.

Now we have President Trump revealing the secrets of the infamous Mueller investigation. We may do well to consider whether or not this memo was classified for strictly procedural reasons. Either way, if the President himself had full access to resources which could easily reveal the fraudulence of this investigation, but could not reveal any of this information due to procedural restrictions, this would be particularly frustrating. This aggravating position could easily anger a person, especially if that individual had to wait for months on end to do anything about such a fraudulent case.  This may have been a reason why Trump took to Twitter so often to vent his frustration.

On the other hand, as mainstream media suggested, Trump may have been nervous that his nefarious motives would be revealed by the Russian investigation. This does not seem likely, in my view, as the corporate media has provably been subject to the will of government since the 1960s, and has faithfully hidden the misdeeds of every past President since JFK. In this way, neither the media, nor any other aspect of government have proven themselves more reliable than the wild-card we know as President Trump.

For these reasons, it seems the situation requires us to maintain an open mind.

The above memorandum appears to be as substantial as a document can be. Many opposers of this declassification argued that it was flawed in some way. Yet at the same time, these critiques fought to prevent the memo from being released. This resistance appears to be fueled purely by fear of what the memo might reveal, and considering its contents (if true), it is not difficult to see why they were so resistant to it.

Immediately after the release of the memorandum (and even before its release), Democrats were frantically protesting the disclosure of this information. It seemed that various parties were both concerned about supposed mistakes within the memorandum as well as its potential to mislead either the general public or authorities in investigating the allegations it presents. However, when considered, these concerns do not seem to add up.

If there are true mistakes and inconsistencies within the memo, these will easily come to light upon closer investigation. Such supposed mistakes could easily be seen by any professional examiner into the situation. This would mean that Democrats would have nothing to be afraid of unless they are provably guilty in some way.

As long as we the people hold officials accountable, and as long as we do not allow a bias media to sway our opinions in the direction of the gross government corruption of past administrations, the process will be sound.

According to the document, numerous FBI officials involved with the supposed investigation of Russian collusion were corrupt from the beginning. Many of these individuals were found, themselves, to be colluding with the DNC and the Clinton campaign to actively undermine the Trump campaign in any way they could.

This involved illegal media leaks, bribery, extortion, and numerous other crimes, according to sources. If the Mueller investigation were an actual legal investigation, why would it need to break so many laws and undermine due process in order for this pseudo-investigation to succeed? Having cut so many corners and broken so many laws (allegedly), it is particularly ironic to still see these perpetrators fail.

This situation is no longer about whether or not the people like President Trump's personality or whether or not we have seen his tax return. The situation appears to be about whether or not government officials and the American people have enough respect of the law itself to ensure that due process is upheld. If it is this easy for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to be bought out, where is the inconsistency that caused such gross failure on so many levels?

If the corporate media is busily singing the song that Donald Trump is the only problem that exists in America today, how trustworthy are they in their complete failure to objectively investigate this scandal as it took place?

If the DNC bought the corporate media, bought the FBI, and bought whatever procedure was necessary to undermine due process, why have we not seen those investigations?

If we as the general public desire to see improvement in our society and in our world, it is important for us to think for ourselves. It is also necessary for us to become active toward building a better society. This does not necessarily mean voting or calling our congressman every day. It means realizing that offices and titles are only as benevolent and beneficial as we demand them to be.

When an entire country blindly follows in lock step with a corporate media that has demonstrated such gross dishonesty and compromise of ethics, this is a problem. When this corporate media ubiquitously tells us to hate our President while completely ignoring every other problem in the U.S. government (both past and present), this is a problem.

If we desire justice, we must honor it. If we want reliability in office, we must exemplify it in our everyday lives, and if we desire to have a system based upon integrity, it is we who must demonstrate this integrity on a personal level. Only when we choose to honor these qualities can we demand and/or appreciate them in any authority or official we depend upon. Moreover, when we do possess these qualities ourselves, we begin the obsolesce the need for elected officials who make our choices for us.
