I’ll Take ‘Corrupt to the Core’ for 1000, Alex
Answer: A four letter acronym that serves as the modern definition of corrupt, corruption, and corruptible.
Question: What is FISA?
These are the days of our lives:
It’s Official: The NSA Unmasked Tucker Carlson
Three weeks after Fox News host Tucker Carlson accused the National Security Agency of reading his communications, the agency has confirmed he was unmasked.
And the fact that they still stick to the party line as if we don’t all already know that the official “target” is just the means to get to those they really intend to spy on [is just insulting anymore]:
“On June 28, 2021, Tucker Carlson alleged that the National Security Agency has been ‘monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air.’ This allegation is untrue. Tucker Carlson has never been an intelligence target of the Agency and the NSA has never had any plans to try to take his program off the air. NSA has a foreign intelligence mission. We target foreign powers to generate insights on foreign activities that could harm the United States. With limited exceptions (e.g. an emergency), NSA may not target a US citizen without a court order that explicitly authorizes the targeting,” the NSA released in a statement.
Unfortunately, the question on everyone’s mind goes unanswered…but it must be asked: Are they still using Samantha Power’s signature to request all of the unmaskings? (It seems to be the one that auto-fills on the request form.)
Here is some background information for those not paying attention:
…either with or without her knowledge, her name was used to unmask over 260 American citizens…
Samantha Power claimed she never tried to unmask Michael Flynn, but records show she unmasked him 7 times.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testified to Congress in 2017 that she never sought to unmask records containing information about former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. … “I don’t recall making such a request,” Power said. … “Yes, I have no recollection of making a request related to General Flynn,” Power again claimed.
Well, here is hoping that we are all “never intelligent targets” so we (and our rights) will remain safely protected by rigorous policies and processes established and followed in good faith by this government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

The intelligence agencies and DOJ need to be cleaned out and lots of people need to go to jail.
But but but jail would undermine the people’s trust on these FINE institutions!!!
/sarc (in case it wasn’t obvious, even if that is McCarthy’s actual argument)
Precisely the job that Joe Biden stole an election to not do. But worry not, Mittens will set things >cough< right.
I thought the new standard for law in D.C. was to put people in jail until they can prove they are innocent. Oh wait. That standard is just for people that protest corruption not people that commit corruption.
I’ll take “Corrupt to the Core” for 800, Alex:
Not “investigated and no charges will be filed” but “decided not to investigate.” No look…no find…no sunlight. Is this the workings of an system of liberty and justice for all? (Asking for a friend who doesn’t happen to live in a free country)
No. You must be prepared for any number of 3 or 4 letter acronyms that may represent government agencies or professional organizations. The list is too long.
I’ll take “Corrupt to the Core” for 600, Alex… *** DAILY DOUBLE ***
OK, I’ll bet it all on this visual clue:
Question: Why should all Americans be chilled to the bone by our current corrupt troika (i.e. Ruling Class, Deep State, and Media)
Sometimes any “correct” answer will do…but that wasn’t always true:
But . . . But . . .
The willful blindness of a useful idiot?
If you think you know everything at 28, you might be the smartest 28 year old, but you’ll be the dumbest 40 year old.
Eh, Jonah doesn’t even know how to buy pants.

David Frye was more prescient than he could ever know putting these words in Richard Nixon’s mouth, “I take full responsibility. But not the blame. Let me explain the difference. People who are to blame go to jail. People who are responsible, do not.”
Unlike a bunch of people I actually read that Inspectors Generals Report Summary. I would love to know the warrant that had 57 errors in was about.
So, when are we going to get MSM coverage of the SWAT team’s pre-dawn raid of her house, and watch her be frog-marched to a waiting SUV? I’m not holding my breath . . .
