(Mad World News) What this ex-CBS reporter, who quit after they were killing stories that paint President Obama in a negative light, found on her computer makes Watergate look like child’s play.
On June 17, 1972, a scandal to wiretap the Watergate Hotel, which was being used as the headquarters of the Democratic National Convention, and the use of the FBI, CIA, and IRS against political opponents broke. The aftermath and political storm caused Richard Nixon to resign as President on August 9, 1974, and also led to the firing of Hillary Rodham from the investigation for lying and “unethical behavior” from the congressional committee for her secret meetings with Teddy Kennedy to try to deny Nixon legal counsel and to keep him from testifying. The wiretapping and scandal rocked the nation, so much so that the suffix “gate” is still used when talking about political scandal.
Now, once again we are seeing IRS scandals of a political nature, targeting “Tea Party” and Christian Churches, while giving free tax exempt status to terrorist groups. We have the FBI Lexicon changing since 2011, slowly taking out Islamic Radical and Jihad, transforming in an attempt to make every patriot an extremist.
The journalist that states she was stonewalled from reporting anything negative on Obama has a shocking claim that makes Watergate look mild in comparison.
Sharyl Attkisson makes the statement that in 2013, after taking her computer to a specialist when it was acting funny, she was not only spied on by a “government-related entity,” but they also found classified documents implanted in her computer in case the administration needed to arrest her to shut her up.
Sharyl Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed.
“This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America,” Attkisson quotes the source saying.
She speculates that the motive was to lay the groundwork for possible charges against her or her sources.
Attkisson says the source, who’s “connected to government three-letter agencies,” told her the computer was hacked into by “a sophisticated entity that used commercial, nonattributable spyware that’s proprietary to a government agency: either the CIA, FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency or the National Security Agency.”
The breach was accomplished through an “otherwise innocuous e-mail” that Attkisson says she got in February 2012, then twice “redone” and “refreshed” through a satellite hookup and a Wi-Fi connection at a Ritz-Carlton hotel.
The spyware included programs that Attkisson says monitored her every keystroke and gave the snoops access to all her e-mails and the passwords to her financial accounts.
“The intruders discovered my Skype account handle, stole the password, activated the audio, and made heavy use of it, presumably as a listening tool,” she wrote in “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.”
Attkisson says her source — identified only as “Number One” — told her the spying was most likely not court-authorized because it went on far longer than most legal taps.
But the most shocking finding, she says, was the discovery of three classified documents that Number One told her were “buried deep in your operating system. In a place that, unless you’re a some kind of computer whiz specialist, you wouldn’t even know exists.”
“They probably planted them to be able to accuse you of having classified documents if they ever needed to do that at some point,” Number One added. (New York Post)
The key logger program is not very different from some that have infected other conservative websites over the last two years. There are many groups coming forward and people discovering key logger files on their home computers.
This is worse than wiretapping a hotel thirty years ago. This is planting bugs in an entire country with the same exact goal as 30 years ago.
Where is the ACLU and ACLJ outrage? Why isn’t the Congressional Judicial Committee up in arms?
It doesn’t matter if it was an executive order from President Bush, this is exactly what everyone warned against with the Patriot Act. This is exactly what both Liberals and Conservatives said could happen. It is no longer ‘could’ — it is happening!
Nixon wiretapped a hotel, President Obama has wiretapped an entire nation and is using it against his political enemies. The excuse of “the hard drive crashed” is not a logical excuse when we are not talking about one computer, but an entire nation of electronic devices!
