For many people that follow the latest news, understanding what FISA is all about may be challenging for some so it is my desire here to shed a lot more light and importance on the subject. “The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act was passed for the purpose of providing oversight for foreign intelligence surveillance activities.” It has also been used for the purpose of investigation and warrants with regard to foreign terrorism.

Their activities might include tracing telephone, cellphone and email use, conducting physical searches or accessing business records. “FISA applies only to “foreign powers” and “agents” of foreign powers. Basically, this means that FISA is used to gather information about people who work for the governments of other countries.

Investigators are “typically” (my quotes) not allowed to target U.S. citizens under FISA. In fact, if information about a U.S. citizen is accidentally discovered, the law requires those records to be destroyed.”

Also, a FISA warrant can be requested, even by the President to monitor U.S. citizens believed to be acting on behalf of a foreign power. And to shore up the efficiency and power of FISA a super secret court was established with a purpose to review and rule on search warrant requests made under under the umbrella of the FISA act. While on the surface this may all seem very proper, take note that these important Federal judges are appointed without confirmation or oversight by Congress. So what is seen here is a risk factor and a fourth amendment infringement because, in effect, the recent cavalier approach by this court mistakenly issued a surveillance warrant on behalf of the FBI reflecting the the activities of the President of the United States and this potentially undermines the legitimacy of any succeeding candidate for office in any political contest and therefore demonstrates a severe strike at liberty and the very foundation of the American Republic.

Additionally, “The U.S. Attorney General must also certify to the court that the target of the investigation is a foreign power or an agent of a foreign power. These requirements parallel what Department of Justice officials would need to demonstrate in FISA court in order to obtain a FISA court warrant.

It is worth remembering that the FISA courts were set up to stop foreign terrorists, not investigate domestic political campaigns.”

It is simply outrageous that the FBI, the DOJ and other major players were involved in what has become the greatest treasonous act of our time while using a secret Federal Court to do the dirty work.

And during the debacle, after our dear MSM players shuffled the deck, a Trump card was played. This entire event reads like a spy novel with the flavor of our friend Inspector Clouseau who is on a mission to clean up the DOJ, the FBI, and the CIA from the top down. So, let’s just get on with it while were in the midst of a giant cesspool that needs to be drained.

Does anyone second the motion?

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD – March 6, 2018


The wise blogger wrote:

Industry-controlled ‘science’ is not really science but a smokescreen to pave the way for products that may be harmful – but what do they care as long as they profit? There are many great scientists but there are also some who are willing to be hired to ‘prove’ that something doesn’t cause cancer, or that something is ‘safe’. You cannot trust the EPA, the FDA, or industry ‘science’.”


Here is an incomplete list of some of the culprits:

A) Foreign Mining Corporations (PolyMet, Glencore, Twin Metals, Antofagasta, etc);

  1. Minnesota’s Elected Politicians/Accomplices (both Corporate-influenced “Liberal” Democrats, and “Conservative” Republicans);
  2. Minnesota’s “Regulatory” Agencies that are Supposed to be “Natural Resource Protectors” (Including the DNR, the PCA, and the US Forest Service); and
  3. Most Area Newspapers; Most Area Television Stations; All the Area’s Chambers of Commerce; Minnesota Power (Electric Utility); the Trump Administration; Regional Labor Unions: and Dozens of Suppliers/Businesses that will Temporarily Profit from Supplying the Mining Industry While Simultaneously Risking the Permanent Poisoning of the St Louis River Watershed, Including Lake Superior

This column will point out and try to de-mystify some of the often-perplexing developments in the decades-long debate concerning allowing foreign mining corporations (which could justifiably be considered “Undocumented Aliens”) to invade water-rich northern Minnesota in order to extract our state’s non-ferrous metal deposits- for the selfish enrichment of its foreign shareholders and management, none of whom really care about the long-term consequences to the state’s precious water resources.

Everywhere in the world where copper mines have been dug and the poisonous tailing’s ponds have been installed, there has not been a single one that has not permanently polluted the ground water and the downstream watersheds, often catastrophically, see the list of 100 of them at . State of the art copper sulfide mines inevitably produce as an inevitable by-product sulfuric acid and many other toxic substances that poison the soil, air, ground water, nearby aquifers, lakes and downstream rivers, especially in water-rich environments like northern Minnesota.
