Blame? Plenty to Go Around, Says Atkisson

 Grim found this item.  It deserves a wide audience.

Sharyl Atkisson--a victim of Obama-spying--rips several new a**hol** for the ones who deserve it.

FBI Woods Procedures: One red flag came with the creation of FBI “Woods Procedures” nearly two decades ago under then-Director Robert Mueller. These rules were designed to appease the secretive FISA court.  ....Facts that cannot be properly verified are to be removed from the application. The Woods Procedures were designed to prevent the very sorts of abuses that FBI officials committed in 2016 and 2017. 

So now that FISA Court hackette-in-black tells the FEEBS to "fix yourselves."  No doubt that will happen, right?

As long as we're on the topic of the Hacks-in-Black who concur-with-unlimited spying "judges" appointed by Roberts (yup, the ObozoCare traitor)....

 FISA: The FISA court has documented numerous serious government surveillance abuses over the years, including a scathing review issued by the court in the fall of 2016 accusing the National Security Agency (NSA) of a problematic “lack of candor” that raised constitutional questions. Yet the court remained publicly silent these past three years amid questions, a crisis of confidence and evidence that it had in hand about FBI wrongdoing.
 The Alfred E. Neuman Court is now in session!!

Speaking of losers, guess which Wisconsin Speaker of the House voted for Spy-On-YOU renewal?  And let's not forget Grothmann--who plays a "conservative" on the radio--and RoJo, who may very well be regretting his kow-tow to The Turtle.

 Congress: Despite many public reports of government surveillance abuses, Congress passed up its most recent opportunity to exercise much-needed oversight. Two years ago, in January 2018, Congress reauthorized Section 702 of the 2008 FISA Amendments Act. It allows the U.S. intelligence community wide latitude to spy on U.S. citizens. Shocking abuses of this government authority were exposed by whistleblower Edward Snowden. Yet Congress voted down a measure to reform the law...

One of Trump's bigger errors makes the s***list!!

FBI Director Christopher Wray: As I have written, FBI Director Christopher Wray falsely testified to Congress that there have been no 702 surveillance abuses.
Well, at least Wray fits right into the Tradition of FEEB Directors!  "Truth?  What IS truth??"

There's more!  Read it all.

Complaints by the FISC judges of suspected unmasking abuses are known to go back as far as 2011. Where do the individual judges direct their complaints? Who has the authority to mete out discipline to those abusing the process? The entire non-adversarial secret process is predicated upon the honor and integrity of all participants in the process, which means it was pretty much destined to fail from the very outset.

Good men and women operating with the best of intentions seem to consistently underestimate the propensity and probability that evil folk among them will with absolute certainty fuck things up. Continuing a system that allows Satan's spawn to operate in total secrecy will never end well. Never.
