English: President Barack Obama. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community. More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011, according to one classified internal report reviewed by Circa. The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm. Trump was elected less than two weeks later. WATCH | Circa's Sara Carter looks at a classified document from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Continue reading

NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt in his car (Photo credit: Wikipedia) By Bob Barney One does not have to be very attentive much to see that auto racing, especially NASCAR are losing fans in droves. The decline started with the worldwide depression that occurred in 2008-2014. As racing expenses grew, and the cost of tickets grew along side of it, fan base slowed. Nascar can go all the way back to Dale Earnhardt's death to see when their audience began to dwindle. For example on the same night as the Virginia Tech-Tennessee game, a Nascar race at Richmond, Virginia, drew 2.7 million television viewers, less than half as many people as watched the football game. TV ratings for the Richmond race were said to be down 12% from the same race in 2015 and 44% from 2014. On Sunday afternoon, butting right into the NFL, the 10-race Nascar playoffs open with a race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. You can... Continue reading

By Bob Barney We are hearing talk about a NATO for the pro-western Muslim nations of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, UAE and among others. The more secular Muslim nations appear to be the friendliest to the USA, yet when we look into their history, some have armed the very enemies that have attacked us. All the hijackers on 9-11 were from Saudi Arabia. What does this mean, and could what seems to be a great idea, turn into a problem. We know that the Bible predicts that during the end times, two world powers will clash. One of those powers is the 10 nation Beast of Revelation, which is a revitalized Holy Roman European Nation, that will be led by an antichrist figure. This kingdom is called in the book of Daniel as "the king of the north." However, Daniel also mentions another world power.... The king of the south(a great United States of Muslim nations- from Iran-North Africa). You... Continue reading

Congressional IT workers Abid and Jamal Awan / family photos provided to TheDCNF House IT Aides Fear Suspects In Hill Breach Are Blackmailing Members With Their Own Data Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers — who were banned from the congressional network — have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information. Imran Awan and three relatives were colleagues until police banned themfrom computer networks at the House of Representatives after suspicion the brothers accessed congressional computers without permission. Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access. “I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone....

(Christian Post) Responding to a question about what he wanted people to know about having and beating cancer in a Reddit AMA Q&A session Wednesday, the 57 year old opened up about the role of his faith as a Christian Scientist. “I am very grateful for all the prayers and good thoughts from around the world. People that know I am a Christian Scientist make the assumption that I have somehow endangered myself. But many, many people have been healed by prayer throughout recorded history. And many, many people have died by whatever was modern medicine,” Kilmer said. Mary Baker Eddy discovered and founded Christian Science, according to the Christian Science website. The faith appreciates God as “infinite love, and so invariably good that a clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal, redeem, and restore anyone.” Read the full story › Continue reading

Dustin Hoffman pawed his leading ladies and Doris Day found the script offensive. Even The Graduate's movie poster became famous. The Graduate was a huge hit when it came out in December 1967. Even the movie poster became famous. But the leg belonged to an unknown model called Linda Gray, who was paid $25 ($195 today). She later played Sue Ellen Ewing in long-running TV drama Dallas. There are still many reasons to love classic movie The Graduate, which is half a century old this year, and just about to get a shiny new restoration for cinema release. Who can forget the Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack; the way the film spoke for a generation disaffected with their parents’ way of doing things; the enigmatic but oddly satisfying ending; the humour; the sexiness; the romance; the one-liners? It is a funny, brilliantly observed and rightly venerated film, which overnight turned the little-known Dustin Hoffman — who months earlier had been living... Continue reading

A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR MEANS THE 2018 ELECTIONS ARE LIFE OR DEATH FOR THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY The deep state is orchestrating a political coup against President Trump, and this latest move makes it clear that they are going for the jugular. Now that former FBI director Robert Mueller has been appointed as “special counsel” to investigate the scandals swirling around the Trump administration, the mid-term elections in 2018 have become of the utmost importance. There is a reason why most people refer to a “special counsel” as a “special prosecutor”. Special prosecutors usually spend years digging around even if there is absolutely no evidence that any crimes have been committed, and in the end they are always going to find someone to prosecute to justify all of the time, money and energy that they have expended. According to the Wall Street Journal, Mueller “will now have unlimited time and resources to investigate more or less anything and anyone he wants.” So... Continue reading

WASHINGTON – The leak of the infamous Comey memo to the press might severely boomerang on the former FBI director, according to legal experts. Democrats are hoping newly appointed special prosecutor Robert Mueller will find President Trump committed obstruction of justice by allegedly telling former FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn. Everything hangs on the accuracy of that account, but a number of factors put its credibility into question. Former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn and President Trump First of all, no one at the Times has seen the memo to verify that it actually exists. By the paper’s own admission, the story comes entirely from unidentified, second-hand sources. The Times claimed “one of Mr. Comey’s associates read parts of” the alleged memo to a reporter, presumably over the phone. One of the other peculiarities of that story is that, according to a Washington Post story in January, the FBI had... Continue reading

By Bob Barney: Editor - The Plain Truth Reprinted from Feb 2011- How far off was I???? Now as Trump is being attacked by the same media, Democrats and REPUBLICANS that allowed REAL TREASON to go unchallenged, maybe it is time for people to read this story again! The sordid history of American presidents trying to overthrow enemy countries and assassinate leaders of those nations is not new. In fact, there was a strong case at one time for presidents to do whatever they had to do to protect American interests and democracy. To the left, these claims are seen as propaganda coming from fascist right-leaning Americans and antagonistic to the facts. You see, it appears that these liberals constantly refer to Nixon and his wars when making their claims about right-winged schemes to demolish democratically elected governments that at are odds with United States capitalistic and business interests. Let's examine the truth about such claims and see whether or... Continue reading

Fox News founder Roger Ailes died yesterday in Palm Beach, Florida aged 77 Leaving Fox News - the station he founded - 'broke' Roger Ailes' heart and he was 'never the same' after his departure, his former colleague Bill O'Reilly said yesterday. The media guru and political strategist died yesterday in Palm Beach, Florida aged 77. He was ousted from Fox in July after accusations of sexual harassment. During a four-minute tribute on his podcast yesterday, Mr O'Reilly praised Mr Ailes as a visionary and someone who 'didn't take any guff from the left or the right' politically. Mr O'Reilly said that Mr Ailes' departure from Fox News 'broke his heart,' and after he was forced out Ailes was 'never the same.' Mr O'Reilly was fired from his top-rated show at Fox in April after reports surfaced that the network had settled lawsuits with five women who alleged he sexually harassed them. Mr O'Reilly has denied those accusations. Mr Ailes... Continue reading

WASHINGTON – It’s the story no one want to touch because it is so potentially explosive. And it’s the murder mystery that could throw a wrench into the narrative that Russia hacked the Democratic Party’s emails during the 2016 presidential election in order to influence the presidential election. WND made numerous inquiries to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, to the White House, Washington police and others, but received scant comment. What do YOU think? Who killed DNC staffer Seth Rich? Sound off in today’s WND poll! This is the story, in a nutshell, in a bombshell report from a local Washington television station, corroborated by a federal investigator who spoke to Fox News: A private investigator looking into the July 2016, murder of Democratic National Committee, or DNC, employee Seth Rich claims the staffer was in contact with WikiLeaks. A federal investigator told Fox News that Rich had emailed 44,053 DNC emails to WikiLeaks. The investigator, former D.C.... Continue reading

FBI Badge & gun. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) WASHINGTON – On the heels of a bombshell revelation that indicated it might have been a Democratic staffer rather than the Russians who hacked the party’s emails, a top investigative reporter is even more puzzled by the FBI’s curious lack of curiosity in perhaps the prime piece of evidence. Five-time Emmy-award winning reporter Sharyl Attkisson shared her razor-sharp insights with WND on a truly bizarre aspect of the investigation: If the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, claimed its email system was hacked by Russia, why didn’t it let the FBI examine its email server? And why didn’t the FBI examine the server regardless of whether the DNC objected? “This has always been befuddling to me,” Attkisson mused.

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich The unsolved case of Democratic National Committee data analyst Seth Rich’s death shares some eerie similarities with many mysterious deaths of individuals linked to former President Bill Clinton and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Just as in the Rich case, several of the people who died mysterious deaths were shot spontaneously and in public places, sometimes from behind, sometimes by unknown assailants and often just before they were set to release incriminating evidence concerning the Clintons’ activities. In most cases, there were no signs of theft at the crime scenes. And while some of the deaths were ruled suicides, other cases remain a mystery.

Exposed: COMEY CROOK FILE... Who Is Peter Comey? When our source called the Chinatown offices of D.C. law firm DLA Piper and asked for “Peter Comey,” a receptionist immediately put him through to Comey’s direct line. But Peter Comey is not featured on the DLA Piper website. Peter Comey serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper. James Comey was not questioned about his relationship with Peter Comey in his confirmation hearing. DLA Piper is the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them. DLA Piper’s employees taken as a whole represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base. DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career Top Contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs. And here is another thing: Peter Comey has a mortgage on his house that is owned...

Readers to The Plain Truth have been reading this story for 7 months now! NOT NEWS TO US! The real story is was he murdered by the Clinton's! Murdered DNC staffer 'DID have links to Wikileaks': Investigation claims Seth Rich was in contact with website and says police looking into his death have been told to 'stand down' NEW DNC data analyst Seth Rich, 27, was shot dead in DC's Bloomingdale neighborhood in July 10 while on the phone to his girlfriend after a night out in what police claim was a 'botched robbery'. His father insisted his son was not behind the mammoth leak of tens of thousands of DNC emails prior to the 2016 presidential election, including messages from seven key staffers, which led to the resignation of chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. But Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, claims there is evidence on his laptop which suggests he was in contact with the... Continue reading

speaking at CPAC in Washington D.C. on February 12, 2011. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) And so am I - Bob Barney - The Plain Truth Conservative author Ann Coulter was one of the most vocal supporters of Donald Trump during the presidential campaign. She wrote “In Trump We Trust” and proclaimed that she worships him like the “people of North Korea worship their Dear Leader – blind loyalty.” Coulter described herself as a single-issue voter during the election and was drawn to Trump due to his “Mexican rapist speech” and him calling for a border wall to be built. In an interview Sunday with The Daily Caller, Coulter let it be known she still has hope in the Trump presidency, but is ready to jump ship. So there’s no wall, and Obama’s amnesties look like they are here to stay. Do you still trust Trump? Uhhhh. I’m not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to... Continue reading

December 7, 1941. (Navy)NARA FILE #: 080-G-32420WAR & CONFLICT BOOK #: 1136 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) For the World War II generation, there was clarity. The attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec 7, 1941, united the nation as it had never been before – in the conviction that Japan must be smashed, no matter how long it took or how many lives it cost. After the defeat of the Axis powers in 1945, however, Americans divided. Only with the Berlin Blockade of 1948, the fall of China to Mao and Russia’s explosion of an atom bomb in 1949, and North Korea’s invasion of the South in 1950, did we unite around the proposition that, for our own security, we had to go back to Europe and Asia. What was called the Cold War... Continue reading

But it quickly uncovered a larger problem. Military police searching through barracks turned up Nazi-era military memorabilia that revealed a much broader presence of far-right extremists in the German Army’s ranks, something commanders are now accused of having long ignored. They are currently investigating 275 cases involving accusations of racism or far-right extremism stretching back six years, according to the Defense Ministry. The number represents a small minority in a force of nearly 180,000. But nearly 70 percent of cases have emerged in the last year and a half, pointing... Continue reading

OPEC members agreed in November to cut production by 1.2 million barrels per day for six months beginning from the start of the year (AFP Photo/Spencer Platt) More Paris (AFP) - OPEC said Thursday that oil producers needed to make more joint efforts to match supply and demand in the oil market in the face of rising output in the United States. Ahead of a May 25 meeting of the cartel where its members and Russia are expected to roll over an agreement to cut production, OPEC said in its monthly market report that common policies were needed for market stability. While decreased stocks and an improving global economy were supporting oil demand, "continued rebalancing in the oil market by year-end will require the collective efforts of all oil producers to increase market stability," OPEC said.

Every state in the nation has breached the Safe Drinking Water Act combining in 80,000 safety violations affecting 77 million people's drinking water.

Mr. Comey, who is three years into a 10-year term at the helm of the F.B.I., learned from news reports that he had been fired while addressing bureau employees in Los Angeles. While Mr. Comey spoke, television screens in the background began flashing the news. Shortly after, a letter was delivered to F.B.I. Headquarters in Washington. The abrupt firing raised questions over whether Mr. Trump was trying to influence the Russia investigation. But the president said he was following recommendations from the Justice Department, which criticized how Mr. Comey concluded the investigation into Mrs. Clinton. “It is essential that we find new leadership for the F.B.I. that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” Mr. Trump wrote. Mr. Comey’s firing came hours after the F.B.I. corrected his testimony last week about how classified information ended up on the laptop of the disgraced former congressman Anthony D. Weiner.
