Top Obama Adviser Sought Names of Trump Associates in Intel

White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter. The pattern of Rice’s requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government’s policy on “unmasking” the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like “U.S. Person One.” (Source:

Susan Rice requested to unmask names of Trump transition officials, sources say

Multiple sources tell Fox News that Susan Rice, former national security adviser under then-President Barack Obama, requested to unmask the names of Trump transition officials caught up in surveillance. The unmasked names, of people associated with Donald Trump, were then sent to all those at the National Security Council, some at the Defense Department, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-CIA Director John Brennan – essentially, the officials at the top, including former Rice deputy Ben Rhodes.(Source:

ISIS group releases ‘kill list’ with the names and addresses of 8,786 Americans, including President Trump, for lone wolf gunman to target in attacks

Is your name on their list? A group of hackers with ties to the Islamic State has released a list of Americans they want to see killed by lone wolf gunman.

Cyborgs at work: employees getting implanted with microchips

This story is a great example of how the mainstream news media is spinning microchip implants as a cool new thing to do, comparing it to becoming a cyborg. Chip implants have become so popular at a Swedish startup hub that workers hold parties for those willing to get implanted. The company offers to implant its workers and startup members with microchips the size of a grain of rice that enables them to swipe cards: open doors, operate printers, or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand. Missing from these reports are the eternal impact of receiving the mark of the beast, which should be a big concern. (Source:

The number of retailers filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection is headed toward its highest annual tally since the Great Recession. Nine retailers have filed in just the first three months of 2017, according to data provided exclusively to CNBC from AlixPartners consulting firm. That equals the number for all of 2016.

Sessions orders Justice Department to review all police reform agreements

Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Justice Department officials to review reform agreements with troubled police forces nationwide, saying it was necessary to ensure these pacts do not work against the Trump administration’s goals of promoting officer safety and morale while fighting violent crime. In a two-page memo released Monday, Sessions said agreements reached previously between the department’s civil rights division and local police departments — a key legacy of the Obama administration — will be subject to review by his two top deputies, throwing into question whether all of the agreements will stay in place. (Source:

Fresh evidence the Russia ‘scandal’ is a Team Obama operation

Do you suspect that the noise over Trump-campaign contacts with the Russians is just a political hit arranged by Obama insiders before they left? You got fresh evidence of that Monday, with news that then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice was behind the “unmasking” of Trumpites in transcripts of calls with Russian officials. Again, nothing on the public record so far shows that anyone on Team Trump said anything improper on those calls. (Source:

An ISIS supporter on the terror group’s al-Minbar online forum wrote, “We ask Allah to bless the operation by the lions of the Caliphate, we ask Allah to kill the Crusaders.” Another wrote that the bombing created “a metro to hell for the worshipers of the Cross” and claimed that the attacks were revenge for Russia’s attacks on ISIS in Syria’s civil war.

Deaf Muslim Girl Beaten by Family for Refusing to Renounce Name of Jesus Christ

A deaf Muslim girl living in Central Asia remains hospitalized with severe injuries after her family beat her because she refused to renounce the name of Jesus Christ. “The screams she emitted caused the neighbors to call the police,” the outlet reveals. “When the police came, the police saw it was her family beating her and they said, ‘Well, this is a family issue, so we won’t get involved.’ The family then realized they kind of had immunity to continue to beat her, so they continued to do so to the point where she had to be brought eventually to the hospital in intensive care.” (Source:

An American pastor who has been imprisoned in Turkey since last October is pleading for President Trump and his administration to work more fervently for his release.
“I plead with my government—with the Trump administration—to fight for me. I ask the State Department to impose sanctions. I appeal to President Trump: Please help me. Let the Turkish government know that you will not cooperate with them in any way until they release me,” Andrew Munson wrote in a statement released by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). “Please do not leave me here in prison.” (Source:

The Gods of the Copybook Heading Rudyard Kipling Look at the picture of civilization carnal pursuit • Text of the poem As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race, I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place. Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall, And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all. We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn: But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind, So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind. We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace, Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place; But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome. With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch, They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch; They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings; So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things. When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace. They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease. But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe, And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.” On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life (Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by… Read more »

The person who broke the Susan Rice story was Michael Cernovich. He needs to be given credit for the story and not the MSM.
