Confirmed: NSA Admits It Unmasked Tucker Carlson After Intelligence Intercept – Report

Western Journal

Published

on

Tucker Carlson: A whistleblower inside the National Security Agency says the government has been surveilling me and my show.

Establishment media: See? Tucker Carlson’s a crazy conspiracy theorist.

Axios report: Actually, Carlson’s show was trying to arrange an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin through a Kremlin intermediary, so this isn’t as outlandish as it sounds — but it’s still pretty outlandish.

Establishment media: See? The NSA had a reason to be surveilling him. Not that they actually were, mind you.

Government insiders: Actually, Tucker Carlson’s communications were collected by the NSA but his name was obscured because he was an American citizen. However, intelligence officials requested he be “unmasked” — meaning his name was revealed to them.

Establishment media: See? The NSA wasn’t spying on Tucker Carlson. Yeesh, what a conspiracy theorist.

Yes, in a little under a month, what started as a widely derided bombshell allegation from Fox News host Tucker Carlson has, according to a Friday report from cybersecurity publication The Record, become an established fact: The NSA was monitoring Carlson’s communications and went as far as to unmask him.

Yet, look at The Record’s headline for the report: “NSA review finds that Tucker Carlson’s communications were not targeted.” The outlet makes it sound like Carlson was entirely wrong. In fact, it took writer Martin Matishak three paragraphs to get to a major journalistic scoop — something that, in any other publication, would be in the first paragraph.

“The NSA has found no evidence to support Tucker Carlson’s accusations that the agency had been spying on him in an effort to knock his show off the air, two people familiar with the matter told The Record,” Matishak began.

“An examination by the spy agency, prompted by congressional inquiries, found that the Fox News host’s communications were not targeted — as the NSA has previously stated publicly — nor intercepted through so-called ‘incidental collection,’ where the U.S. government sometimes obtains the emails or phone calls of Americans in contact with a foreign target under surveillance, according to these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity,” Matishak continued. “Correspondence between intelligence agencies and oversight authorities are conducted through classified means.”

“Instead, the nation’s top electronic spy agency found that Carlson was mentioned in communications between third parties and his name was subsequently revealed through ‘unmasking,’ a process in which relevant government officials can request the identities of American citizens in intelligence reports to be divulged provided there is an official reason, such as helping them make sense of the intelligence documents they are reviewing.” [Emphasis mine.]

Keep in mind that unmasking American citizens, whose names are obscured for reasons of privacy, isn’t routine. In fact, intelligence unmasking of individuals in the orbit of former President Donald Trump during the last days of the Obama administration — in particular former national security adviser Michael Flynn — was treated as a scandal. Here, The Record treats it with a shrug.

Furthermore, while what constitutes “an effort to knock his show off the air” is a subjective matter, let’s look at “Tucker Carlson’s accusations that the agency had been spying on him.”

When Carlson first alleged his communications were being monitored on June 28, he said the whistleblower told them “that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications and is planning to leak them in an attempt to take this show off the air.”

“Now, that’s a shocking claim, and ordinarily we’d be skeptical of it,” Carlson continued. “The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story that we are working on that could have only come directly from my texts and emails. There’s no other possible source for that information, period.”

Carlson went on to say that “the NSA captured that information without our knowledge and did it for political reasons,” adding that “spying on opposition journalists is incompatible with democracy.”

It’s not merely Jesuitical to note it’s apparently not Carlson who claimed the NSA intercepted his communications “in an attempt to take this show off the air,” but the whistleblower. Everything else in the clip is either accurate or a matter of opinion. There’s no mention of targeting, either — merely that the NSA read the communications.

Thus, if the only thing the NSA’s review found is that there was “no evidence to support Tucker Carlson’s accusations that the agency had been spying on him in an effort to knock his show off the air,” as per The Record, what the outlet is really asserting is that the whistleblower was engaged in hyperbole regarding the NSA’s intentions. Oh, but the part about intercepting an American citizen’s communications? That part’s accurate.

Furthermore, while the NSA’s denial of Carlson’s accusations may also be technically true, it’s worth noting the agency didn’t really deny much.

“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,” the NSA said in a tweeted statement on June 29. “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.”

That’s a non-denial denial, however, since the NSA didn’t claim that Carlson’s communications weren’t intercepted or that his identity — or that of people on his staff — wasn’t unmasked.

According to The Hill, Carlson didn’t appear on air to address the report, although he tweeted a video of guest host Mark Steyn discussing it:

The network also issued a statement to The Record: “For the NSA to unmask Tucker Carlson or any journalist attempting to secure a newsworthy interview is entirely unacceptable and raises serious questions about their activities as well as their original denial, which was wildly misleading,” a Fox News spokesperson said.

What’s more troubling, however, is that there’s no alarm from the media despite the alarming nature of The Record’s report. Even The Record’s Martin Matishak was explaining away the explosive nature of what he was reporting before he got around to reporting it. For the media, almost anything can be explained away if it happens to Fox News and Tucker Carlson. Just watch the hue and cry if it ever happens to Jim Acosta, though.

Graphic Warning: Horrified Crowd Shouts as Parent Shows School's Pedophilia Comics at Board Meeting

Western Journal

Published

on

It appears Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia has been disseminating pedophilic pornography to its students.

As much was revealed by author and former journalist for The Wall Street Journal Asra Nomani, who attended a local Fairfax County School Board meeting Thursday night.

During the meeting, Fairfax High School mother Stacy Langton brought two books up to the podium, along with printouts of some of their pages. The books were “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe.

Langton said she found the books in the high school library, the Robinson Secondary School library and at others across the county.

“The books were available, and we checked them out,” the mother said, according to Nomani’s report.

Nomani recorded the school board meeting, as well as the contents of the books, in a video posted to her Twitter.

Given the incredibly pornographic nature of the images (comic-style pictures showing individuals performing sex acts on one another), we will not embed the video in this story.

If you do wish to see how truly horrific the content is, you can view Nomani’s video here.

The books don’t just show any kind of pornography, however.

They appear to show drawings of child pornography by depicting acts of pedophilia.

One book even includes a “fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male,” Nomani reported.

In “Lawn Boy,” the author describes performing such an act for the first time at the age of 10.

This is the type of material a pedophile would use to groom his victims, making them read it as a way of normalizing explicit sex acts.

And the Fairfax County school district allegedly made these books available to “minors as young as seventh grade, or as young as 12 years old.”

The school board chair, Stella Pekarsky, attempted to defend the inclusion by claiming one of the schools they were found at was made up of “high school students.”

Nomani noted in her report that Robinson Secondary School, where Langton said the books were also available, “includes seventh and eighth graders.”

Either way, it likely doesn’t make parents feel much better knowing that their high school children may have been and possibly continue to be exposed to this horrific content.

According to WRC-TV, Fairfax County Public Schools said it would temporarily remove the books from the library. At a later date, they will be reviewed by a committee of students, staff and parents for a final decision.

For years, conservatives have been saying that the sexual-freedom-movement left’s ultimate goal is to sexualize children and they’ve been called crackpots for saying so.

Well, who are the crackpots now?

Stories continue to break revealing content developed and written by pro-LGBT authors such as this being disseminated to young children.

Minnesota’s Richfield Public Schools district was also caught this week using a sexual education program that has children role-play as sexually active gay teenagers deciding whether or not they want to have sex.

Modern-day leftists have taken over the public school system.

And, if you let them, they’ll use that power to sexualize America’s children with pedophile-esque grooming techniques.

By the official count, President Joe Biden won the Grand Canyon State in November’s general election by 10,457 votes.

The only county he flipped from red to blue to do so was Maricopa, the state’s most populous, encompassing the Phoenix metropolitan area.



Former President Donald Trump carried the county by approximately 44,500 votes in 2016 and Biden won it by 45,100 in 2020.
