The CIA – America’s Frankenstein
On September 18, 1947 the Office of Strategic Services formally became the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
I don’t know what causes me more concern, what we know or think we know about the CIA or the fact that Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee with oversight of the United States Intelligence Community (IC)?
From what I’ve seen over the past 4 years coming out of the House of Representatives concerning the infamous Russia Hoax, the trumped up Impeachment of President Trump and the continued resistance to US Foreign Policy as determined by the president leads me to believe that where there is smoke, there is fire. I have seen power given to the Congress of the United States by “We the People” concentrated into the hands of one now very powerful man – Adam Schiff, weaponized and with a purpose.
According to limited information on Wikipedia the CIA is unlike the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which is a domestic security service, the CIA has no law enforcement function and is officially mainly focused on overseas intelligence gathering, with only limited domestic intelligence collection and is primarily focused on providing intelligence for the President and Cabinet of the United States.
Before the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, the CIA Director concurrently served as the head of the Intelligence Community; today, the CIA is organized under the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). Despite transferring some of its powers to the DNI, the CIA has grown in size as a result of the September 11 attacks.
More on the CIA
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA; /siaɪˈeɪ/) is a civilian foreign intelligence service of the federal government of the United States, officially tasked with gathering, processing, and analyzing national security information from around the world, primarily through the use of human intelligence (HUMINT).
As one of the principal members of the United States Intelligence Community (IC), the CIA reports to the Director of National Intelligence and is officially mainly focused on overseas intelligence gathering, with only limited domestic intelligence collection.
When newly appointed Director of National Intelligence Michael Flynn assumed office on day one and announced to agency personnel that major changes were going to occur, it became clear that he was a threat and an FBI “entrapment sting” was put in motion to take him down. How was this allowed to happen to a Trump Administration cabinet official unless it was a coordinated effort?
The CIA serves as the national manager for coordination of HUMINT activities across the U.S. intelligence community. It is the only agency authorized by law to carry out and oversee covert action at the behest of the President. It exerts foreign political influence through its tactical divisions, such as the Special Activities Center. The CIA was also instrumental in establishing intelligence services in several U.S. allied countries, such as Germany’s BND. It has also provided support to many foreign political groups and governments, including planning, coordinating, training on torture, technical support, and was involved in several regime changes, terrorist attacks and planned assassinations of foreign leaders.
Before the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, the CIA Director concurrently served as the head of the Intelligence Community; today, the CIA is organized under the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). Despite transferring some of its powers to the DNI, the CIA has grown in size as a result of the September 11 attacks. In 2013, The Washington Post reported that in the fiscal year 2010, the CIA had the largest budget of all IC agencies, exceeding previous estimates.
The CIA has increasingly expanded its role, including covert paramilitary operations. One of its largest divisions, the Information Operations Center (IOC), has officially shifted focus from counter-terrorism to offensive cyber-operations.
The agency has been the subject of many controversies, including human rights violations, domestic wiretapping and propaganda, and allegations of drug trafficking. It has also appeared in works of fiction, including books, films and video games.
During the Presidential Election of 2012 in Florida the use of a SIGNET tool called HAMMER brought a new anomaly into the election process. HAMMER is a CIA program used to monitor foreign elections and aid in “controlling” the vote insure regime change to a US friendly candidate. Under Obama the CIA inserted another SIGNET program from the NSA called SCORECARD which would change voting stream at a certain point in the tabulation process insuring a democratic win.
Directorate of Digital Innovation
The Directorate of Digital Innovation (DDI) focuses on accelerating innovation across the Agency’s mission activities. It is the Agency’s newest directorate. The Langley, Virginia-based office’s mission is to streamline and integrate digital and cybersecurity capabilities into the CIA’s espionage, counterintelligence, all-source analysis, open-source intelligence collection and covert action operations. It provides operations personnel with tools and techniques to use in cyber operations. It works with information technology infrastructure and practices cyber tradecraft. This means retrofitting the CIA for cyberwarfare. DDI officers help accelerate the integration of innovative methods and tools to enhance the CIA’s cyber and digital capabilities on a global scale and ultimately help safeguard the United States. They also apply technical expertise to exploit clandestine and publicly available information (also known as open source data) using specialized methodologies and digital tools to plan, initiate and support the technical and human-based operations of the CIA. Before the establishment of the new digital directorate, offensive cyber operations were undertaken by the CIA’s Information Operations Center. Little is known about how the office specifically functions or if it deploys offensive cyber capabilities.
The directorate had been covertly operating since approximately March 2015 but formally began operations on October 1, 2015. According to classified budget documents, the CIA’s computer network operations budget for fiscal year 2013 was $685.4 million. The NSA’s budget was roughly $1 billion at the time.
Rep. Adam Schiff, the California Democrat who serves as the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, endorsed the reorganization. “The director has challenged his workforce, the rest of the intelligence community and the nation to consider how we conduct the business of intelligence in a world that is profoundly different from 1947, when the CIA was founded,” Schiff said. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Intelligence_Agency
The introduction of these SIGNET programs inserted into electronic election devices is designed to insure the tabulated outcome of elections was favorable to the side using the program. During the Presidential Election of 2016 the Obama CIA attempted to use SCORECARD again to insure a Democratic win for Hillary Clinton, but somehow SCORECARD failed to initiate. During the Presidential Election of 2020 it is clear that SCORECARD coding was introduced to the tabulating process on the night of November 3rd by a high ranking individual in Dominion Voting Systems.
I conducted a search of Dominion’s official website and there was no reference to the Dominion official who admitted to making sure that President Trump didn’t win the election. This Dominion official is credited with creating and holding the patent on the Dominion software and is a company stockholder. I wonder if there was not active collaboration between the DNI, CIA and other yet to be seen agencies with the Dominion programmer to rig the outcome of the 2020 election.
American’s have had a lasting fantasy of life inside the CIA, with movies and documentaries giving just a glimpse into the spy world and its possibilities. We glamorize the taking down of foreign leaders and military dictators through the use of covert operations, yet when we find the focus has turned within United States elections we are suddenly faced with a reality check – the fate of US elections are the same as in other third world countries. When our country created our own Borne Identity, what came out was a bit more Frankensteinish than we expected. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
