“But the action inside the Russian electric grid appears to have been conducted under little-noticed new legal authorities, slipped into the military authorization bill passed by Congress last summer. The measure approved the routine conduct of “clandestine military activity” in cyberspace, to “deter, safeguard or defend against attacks or malicious cyberactivities against the United States.”
“New laws, enacted by Congress last year, allow such “clandestine military activity” in cyberspace to go ahead without the president’s approval. So, in this case, those new laws are protecting American interests… by keeping the sitting president out of the loop. What a (scary) time to be alive.”
Deep State now bypasses Presidential authorizations to launch cyber attacks… Congress gave Secretary of Defense authority to launch cyber attacks on nation’s like Russia, China, and Iran without a US President’s approval…. a great way for Hawks like Bolton to start a war without a Presidents knowledge or approval.

“There is information coming that will curl your hair. I can tell you that the reason why it is so visceral — the response from the Democrats is so visceral right now — is because they know, they’ve seen documents.

My generation and the one before mine fought a Cold War and we are now increasingly finding that men who supported our enemies are leading our government. Our intelligence community has largely lost the confidence of the American people…. mistakes happen…. but Brennan’s CIA hacking the computer systems of the Congress investigating them…. NSA’s Clapper lying to Congress about illegal mass surveillance of US citizens, FBI operatives running rogue operations against an opposition candidate and then continuing when he became their Commander in Chief…. those are not mistakes.
The intelligence agencies are not equal to, or above, the Executive, Judicial, or Legislative branches… they must be held accountable for their illegal actions.
“We are fighting a real caliphate, not a so-called caliphate, this is the true extremist Islamist militant ideology that is taking over our lands and our countries,” Tawhidi warned.
