Unprecedented: CIA attempting to undermine president-elect


Wayne Madsen

Although the Central Intelligence Agency has had a long history of undermining presidents-elect and prime ministers-elect in other countries, the United States has never witnessed the intelligence agency so blatantly attempting to politically weaken a U.S. president-elect just a few weeks prior to the inauguration. What the CIA is doing in forcing Donald Trump into shifting from his campaign promise of restoring good relations with Russia to one of outright hostility to Moscow — favored by the CIA, Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and the neo-conservatives within the Republican and Democratic party establishments — is nothing less than an overt threat to American democracy.

Amid pressure from the CIA, DNI, National Security Agency, and the Department of Defense’s under-secretariat for Intelligence, Trump has vowed to revamp the U.S. Intelligence Community. Trump has also questioned the politicization of U.S. intelligence, particularly the January 5 Senate Foreign Relations Committee testimony of DNI James Clapper, NSA director Mike Rogers, and Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence Marcel Lettre. Clapper, in particular, not only called out Russia for hacking election-related computers at the Democratic National Committee but also u
sing “fake news, social media and RT to influence the recent US elections.” That was a slap at Trump’s incoming national security adviser, former Defense Intelligence Agency chief retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who stood accused of re-tweeting, along with his son, “fake news.”

Clapper not only used the Senate Armed Service Committee hearing to rant about Russian hacking of U.S. election-related computers but used the occasion to push for a U.S. government propaganda agency to counteract not only Russia but also WikiLeaks, social media, and any news source that disagreed with U.S. government policy. Clapper said, “
We could do with having a USIA [U.S. Information Agency] on steroids to fight this information war a lot more aggressively than we’re doing right now.” The U.S. has moved so far to the right, it should be recalled that it was uber-conservative Republican Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC), the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who pushed for USIA to be eliminated in 1999 because it represented too powerful a U.S. government propaganda arm that was ultimately beholden to the Secretary of State. Now, Clapper does not believe USIA was powerful enough, a stand that would make Helms turn over in his grave.

Clapper had particular disdain for RT, the Russian government-supported global satellite news network. He said, “
RT was very active in promoting a particular point of view, disparaging our system, our alleged hypocrisy about human rights, etc. Whatever crack, fissure they could find in our tapestry, they would exploit it.” Clapper’s statement had nothing to do with the stated purpose of the hearing, Russian cyber-intrusions into the 2016 U.S. election. Under McCain’s constipated chairmanship, the hearing devolved into constant Russia-bashing by Clapper, Rogers, Lettre, McCain, Graham, and Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Ben Cardin (D-MD). Cardin intends to propose legislation that will increase sanctions on Russia. Cardin’s only interest is to advance the Russia destabilization goals of George Soros and exiled anti-Vladimir Putin Russian tax cheats and oligarchs Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Leonid Nevzlin, all supported by Cardin’s puppet masters that include the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and American Jewish Committee. It is also the case that Cardin, Soros, Khodorkovsky, and Nevzlin all happen to be Jewish.

The Bobbsey Twins who advocate nothing less than an all-out U.S.-Russian war, Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), were prepped by the U.S. Intelligence Community to rattle the sabers against Russia. Before an approving Clapper, Rogers, and Lettre, Graham issued an unprecedented warning to a president-elect about his need to kow-tow before the U.S. Intelligence Community, “
Mr. President-elect, when you listen to these people, you can be skeptical, but understand, they’re the best among us, and they’re trying to protect us.” As for Russia, Graham, summoning up his usual persona of a hysterical Southern belle with a sudden onset of the vapors, declared, “Ladies and gentlemen, it is time now not to throw pebbles but to throw rocks.”

The CIA can easily manipulate the two neo-con senators because of the blackmail it has on both. McCain’s intelligence dossier, as previously reported by WMR, contains details of his USS Forrestal flight deck “horseplay” antics with his A-4 fighter. McCain’s July 1967 dangerous “wet start” of his A-4 resulted in the deadliest ship fire, not caused by combat, in the history of the U.S. Navy. CIA files are also bulging with still-classified details of the information McCain spilled to his North Vietnamese and Soviet interrogators while a prisoner-of-war from 1967 to 1972. McCain was so loose-lipped about Navy operational schedules and tactics, his fellow POWs nicknamed the son of Navy Admiral John S. McCain, Jr., then the Commander of U.S. Pacific Forces, “songbird.”

Then there is the information never publicly revealed by the Senate Ethics Committee about the amount of money McCain illegally took from Lincoln Savings and Loan chairman Charles Keating, enough money to have kicked McCain out of the Senate and into a federal prison. What the CIA has on McCain is enough collateral to ensure that he echoes everything he is told by Langley, including his warning to Trump that Russia’s hacking threatens the “unraveling” McCain’s precious “world order.” However, McCain’s “world order” is represented by neo-Nazis and fascists ruling Ukraine, the outbreak of war with Russia in Europe and the Caucasus, Sunni jihadists taking over Syria and Lebanon, a joint U.S.-Israeli war with Iran, illegal migrants continuing to stream into the United States from Mexico and into Europe from the Middle East and North Africa, and a continuing freeze in U.S. relations with Cuba.

As for the goods the CIA has on Graham, homosexuality may no longer be taboo in the U.S. military but it was while Graham served as a reserve officer in the Air Force Judge Advocate General corps for most of his 33 years in the reserve prior to his retirement in 2015. In Graham’s home state of South Carolina, gays serving openly in the military has never been a popular cause. Because of South Carolina’s large number of military veterans Graham has tried to keep his gay life style a secret from his constituents, but to little avail. Reporters forThe State newspaper in Columbia are well aware of Graham’s sexual orientation but publicly reporting it because of pressure from the state’s Republican Party establishment.

While attending the National Press Club’s Fourth Estate dinner honoring CBS newsman Bob Schieffer on October 15, 2010, this editor was on the receiving end of a very drunk Graham, at the very end of the festivities and after Schieffer and his country band stopped playing, leaning on me and asking where “we” would continue to party. I replied that “I” was heading home to Arlington, Virginia and was calling it a night. At about the same time, Graham’s aide came up, gave me a rolling eyes apologetic glance, and told the senator his car was outside and that it was time to leave. The warnings about Graham from the reporters with The State all made a world of sense as Graham staggered with his aide from the press club’s ballroom. The CIA very likely has photos of Graham, a lifelong bachelor, when he did not leave DC parties unaccompanied.

Lindsey Graham [left] and Bob Schieffer [right] the night in 2010 when Graham was looking for a guy to “party” with after hours. The CIA, which is no stranger to the prostitution game — female and male — has probably supplied Graham with a number of after-party companions.

Senator Cotton echoed the anti-Russian theme during the McCain hearing. Cotton also has a problem with CIA blackmail. As WMR previously reported, Cotton,
a former Army Ranger who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and a close colleague of Graham, was found to havebeen running political ads on GRINDR, a smart phone application for gay men looking to hook up with other gay men, during his 2014 senate campaign. WMR also reported that Cotton, both during his time as a member of the U.S. Army’s “Old Guard” at Arlington National Cemetery and as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, was a frequent customer of JR’s, a well-known gay bar in Washington, DC’s primarily-gay Dupont Circle neighborhood. If the CIA continues to follow precedent, it has plenty of incriminating evidence on Cotton, who hastily got married in March 2014 during his Senate campaign in Arkansas. It is no coincidence that the CIA’s major anti-Russia activists on the Armed Services Committee are the immensely blackmailable McCain, Graham, and Cotton.

McCain did not have his own way with all the statements by committee members. For example, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) accurately described America’s own sordid track record on influencing foreign elections, stating that the U.S. was responsible for

influencing elections “more than twice as often as Russia has been accused of.”

On the House side, the CIA also has its sycophants, including House Homeland Security Committee chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX); Representative Will Hurd (R-TX), a former CIA clandestine operative; and ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff. McCaul is still sore that Trump did not nominate him to be Secretary of Homeland Security. Other Trump administration prospective candidates, apparently rejected because of opposition to their neocon credentials, are also taking the opportunity of the unprecedented rift between Trump and the intelligence agencies to not only continue to bash Russia but also Trump. These include former CIA director James Woolsey, who severed all links with Trump, and former unconfirmed U.S. ambassador to the UN John Bolton, who has not, as widely expected, been tapped to be Deputy Secretary of State under nominee Rex Tillerson. Bolton recently said that sanctions were not enough against Russia and that what Russia needed was to “feel pain.” That is directly out of sync with Tillerson’s policy of a seeking close detente with Moscow.

    Reading Madsen’s anecdote about being hit on by Graham makes me wonder if it was an attempt to get something on Mr.Madsen and force him to join the other side. I wonder how many other journalists have been “turned” that way?

    Why are you surprised? The Busk/Clinton Crime Family is dying …….
    Trump is throwing over the table after they got all the rules of the game favoring them.

    The head of the CIA Brennan converted to the Saudi version of Islam (Wahhabi) and Obama is also a closet Muslim and together they are working in the shadows in an all out attempt to stop Trump tomorrow. If the American people sit by and let this happen they will lose it all.

    The FBI & CIA have such a history of corruption, incompetence, and screw-up failures how can anyone take anything they say seriously? MANY books have been written about how foul they both are. Their malfeasance and misfeasance is legendary . they are a “Continuing Criminal Enterprise”. I don’t know who they work for but they do not work for AMERICA.

    Every person clamoring for war should be PUT in the front lines. Every time some clown agitates for military action demand THEY pick up a rifle and lead the charge.

    “US Officials Say Russia Approval of Trump Win Is ‘Evidence’ of Hacking” ……. really? Then ISRAELI approval of the US response to the 9/11 WTC attacks is PROOF of Israeli complicity in the attacks.

    DADDY Bush — CIA Director.
    Bill Clinton SNITCHED on his anti-war Comrades TO the CIA (as did Hillary)
    BABYBush — well.
    Obama CIA ASSET … seemed to rise out of total obscurity (a hallmark of intelligence assets)

    I cannot find an address to mail the pasted article. Maybe it will be of interest.


    Benjamin Ginsberg has documented the history of financiers assisting various rulers to exploit their citizens in FATAL EMBRACE; JEWS AND THE STATE. Each nation eventually suffered chaos. The question is obvious: Is history repeating itself ?

    The unlawful acts of the Wall Street banks and the IMF are becoming daily headlines. The Federal Reserve allegedly has a role in this matter which has been concealed for 100 years – as a source of funds embezzled from the US government. The embezzled funds assist Wall Street, using the IMF and WB, to fund economic oppression of the third world. That trend is now moving up to Greece and Europe. Ref. GLOBALISM OF POVERTY by Michel Chossudovsky. Brazil, Argentina, and Philippines are currently being raped by Wall Street but are resisting. Ref. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45783.htm .

    The spread of poverty has been documented to be an agenda promoted by Wall Street. It relies upon government assistance. Ref. CONFESSIONS OF ECONOMIC HIT MAN by John Perkins. Wall Street funded the development of the CIA to thwart unacceptable government actions. Ref. DEVIL’S CHESSBOARD by David Talbot.

    The rape of Greece using nefarious means by Wall Street financiers backed by United States muscle is beyond parallel. Ref. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/05/25/we-have-entered-the-looting-stage-of-capitalism-paul-craig-roberts/. The ultimate objective of collecting on the US $19 trillion debt has been discovered on internal memos according to Greg Palast. Ref. http://www.gregpalast.com/larry-summers-and-the-secret-end-game-memo/. A lengthy history of the CIA altering government / presidential courses of action has been documented. Ref. https://www.scribd.com/doc/49566880/CIA-ROGUE-AGENCY-RUN-AMUCK

    The scheme has been analyzed and is passed on to you for your consideration and comments. If you know of someone that would be interested in the writing, feel free to forward it.



    The Supreme Court has identified parameters of a government agency. An agency is subject to
    Congressional oversight into the daily operation of an agency. The “absen(ce of) extensive, detailed, and virtually day-to-day supervision” is not compatible with agency status. Ref. Forsham v Harris, 445 US 169, 180 (1980). The alternate status is that of a government contractor which does not carry sovereign immunity.

    In addition, agencies are created for the purpose of initiating and organizing a service to the public. The creation of a body for the fiscal profit of its creators is a perversion of agency status.

    The Board of Governors touts itself as a government agency. It is created by Title 12, sections 241 to 252 and makes a pretense of complying with FOIA requests. Some employees receive pay checks from the US Treasury while other employees receive paychecks drawn on the Federal Reserve system.

    The twelve Federal Reserve Banks have been adjudicated to be privately owned corporations and are not government entities—they can sue and be sued. They have additionally been identified as franchisees of the Federal Reserve with administrative and regulatory authority vested in the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve (BOG). Commercial banks purchase non-transferable shares of regional FR Banks for the privilege of benefits received from the system. The BOG can terminate any director of any FR bank without cause and without recourse. The FR banks are, with the exception of the FR Bank of New York, not relevant to this article.
    Has the Federal Reserve been created with an ulterior motive, of perhaps hidden profit, that is not readily visible to an observer ? Let us make a review how the Federal Reserve and the government create book entry money.
    ONE: The FRBNY will establish a line of credit for the government (book entry money) when they receive a deficit Treasury security in the amount of the line of credit.
    TWO: The deficit security is sold as a declared small percentage (about ten percent) on the auctioned roll-over securities (bills, bonds, or notes). The FRBNY handles all of the accounts and disbursements. Ref. 31 CFR 375.3. The accounts are client accounts (not operational accounts) and have never been audited. Audits of the FR are conducted according to guidelines established by the BOG and these accounts are excluded.
    THREE: Funds from auctioning the deficit security issues (currently $1 to 2 trillion annually; up to $6 billion daily) cannot go to the government. If they did, they would have to buy the securities just issued since securities in the market have not been purchased. Under those circumstances, there would be no increase in the money in circulation (inflation) nor would there be any increase in the national debt. The money from the auction must go somewhere but it cannot go to the government.
    FOUR: The only feasible destination for the funds is to members of the Primary Dealers who are tasked with collecting called and redeemed Treasury securities. As hidden owners of the corporate Board of Governors, they can receive deficit spending profit along with funds for the roll-over security work. Privately owned corporations are not required to file records with the SEC. The structure of the BOG readily lends itself to a corporate structure; the FR system does not.
     The owners have put up no consideration for receiving $3 to $6 billion daily, even though it is touted as a loan. (If the non-existing loan was being paid off by the hidden money, it would then result is eliminating any increase in the National Debt. In addition, who, or what, is the source of the putative loan is never mentioned, and it is obvious the Fed does not have the value in advance of receiving the security.
    FIVE: Profit of the Federal Reserve is stipulated in its charter to legally belong to the government. Hiding money that belongs to the government is a crime.
    It is a fallacy to suggest the Treasury Department handles the auctions of Treasury securities. The FRBNY has exclusive handling of the approximate $10 trillion annual disbursements of the accounts and that authority is expanded by implementation in all possible manners. Ref 31 USC 375.3. The Treasury has a mere cameo role.
    Additional misleading and deliberately confusing diatribe on how the government “borrows” from the Fed has been disseminated by Dan Sanchez. Nowhere does he identify where the illusory “borrowed” funds existed before they were created. Nor is there any logic of the Federal Reserve purchasing Washingtons and Franklins for pennies each from the Treasury and then loaning (?) them to the government. It should be noted Dan is a frequent writer for the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia; i.e., he works for the wizard behind the curtain.

    Detrimental societal results of government actions, which appear to further the goals of Wall Street, have been detailed by John Whitehead. Ref. https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/the_titanic_sails_at_dawn_warning_signs_point_to_danger_ahead_in_2017

    Conclusion: It is the conclusion of this writer that the Federal Reserve Board of Governors is a privately held corporation owned by select Primary Dealers operating as government contractors without sovereign immunity. The PD/owners receive the value of government deficit spending through the FRBNY’s exclusive control of the auction accounts of Treasury securities. The concealed money constitutes profit of the Fed that legally belongs to the government. These funds are received in addition to the $8-9 trillion annually handled from their task of collecting securities for redemption. Embezzlement and hiding money from the government are only two of the applicable crimes.
