Three recent deep-background stories that describe how political spying happened under Obama

The first article tells the story of a Treasury Department whistleblower:

President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department regularly surveilled retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s financial records and transactions beginning in December 2015 and well into 2017, before, during and after when he served at the White House as President Donald Trump’s National Security Director, a former senior Treasury Department official, and veteran of the intelligence community, told the Star Newspapers.

…By March 2016, the whistleblower said she and a colleague, who was detailed to Treasury from the intelligence community, became convinced that the surveillance of Flynn was not tied to legitimate criminal or national security concerns, but was straight-up political surveillance among other illegal activity occurring at Treasury.

“When I showed it to her, what she said, ‘Oh, sh%t!’ and I knew right then and there that I was right – this was some shady stuff,” the whistleblower said.

“It wasn’t just him,” the whistleblower said. “They were targeting other U.S. citizens, as well.” (EXCLUSIVE: The Treasury Department Spied on Flynn, Manafort, and the Trump Family, Says Whistleblower)

The second article takes us much deeper into Obama-era spying within the Treasury Department, IRS, and more:

An exclusive Treasury Department whistleblower outline in the Ohio Star is almost an absolute match to our research {Go Deep} on how President Obama constructed the political surveillance network during his second term.

According to the article in mid-December 2015 the Treasury whistleblower started noticing data-search transactions with the Treasury Dept. for specific people that aligned with the 2016 GOP primary.  The searches included Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump and his family as well as certain members of congress.

The third article describes even deeper and more widespread methods of domestic political spying during the Obama administration:

For years, Sally Yates and James Clapper were acutely aware that the Obama administration was engaged in illegal domestic surveillance.

In August of 2014, CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery met with Senior Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia Royce C. Lamberth, one-time presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.  Montgomery handed over to Judge Lamberth a cache of Special Access Program (SAP) classified documents.

It appears Gen Flynn was not actually “unmasked” because he was himself the target of a rogue counter-intelligence operation and his call with Kislyak was not discovered through “incidental collection.” What’s worse is the possibility that candidate and then president, Donald Trump, had also been a target of a rogue counter-intelligence operation.

Psychedelics and religious experience

It is well-known that psychedelic drugs can induce religious experiences, as well as cure depression and other psychological problems.

Many people today and in the past have had these experiences and praised them effusively. In recent decades, scientific studies have corroborated this side of the history of most of the world’s religions.

A new study published last month adds even more weight to the religious value of psychedelic drugs.

..Respondents reported the primary senses involved in the encounter were visual and extrasensory (e.g. telepathic). The most common descriptive labels for the entity were being, guide, spirit, alien, and helper. Although 41% of respondents reported fear during the encounter, the most prominent emotions both in the respondent and attributed to the entity were love, kindness, and joy. Most respondents endorsed that the entity had the attributes of being conscious, intelligent, and benevolent, existed in some real but different dimension of reality, and continued to exist after the encounter. Respondents endorsed receiving a message (69%) or a prediction about the future (19%) from the experience. More than half of those who identified as atheist before the experience no longer identified as atheist afterwards. The experiences were rated as among the most meaningful, spiritual, and psychologically insightful lifetime experiences, with persisting positive changes in life satisfaction, purpose, and meaning attributed to the experiences.

Findings show relationship between atmospheric and biologic electrical activity

That there is a clear relationship between atmospheric and biological electrical activity is in itself interesting. And also it may extrapolate to an even larger network of many organisms reacting together to the atmosphere and each other.

The following article describes medical and other ramifications of these links:

Most electrical activity in vertebrates and invertebrates occurs at extremely low frequencies, and the origin — and medical potential — of these frequencies have eluded scientists. Now a Tel Aviv University study provides evidence for a direct link between electrical fields in the atmosphere and those found in living organisms, including humans.

The study’s findings may change established notions about electrical activity in living organisms, paving the way for revolutionary, new medical treatments. Illnesses such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s are related to abnormalities in the electrical activity of the body. (Electrical Activity in Living Organisms Mirrors Electrical Fields in Atmosphere)
