(UPDATE: I had to edit out the name of Eric Ciaramella in the description in order for YouTube to publish this audio. The monolithic thought is amazing to me, and the 1984 beginnings are unmistakable. Obviously no Federal or State law says a person’s name cannot be used… and, in fact, the “whistleblower” statute merely protects the person from on the job harassment by superiors. Not to nix his name from the public. Weird.)
Real Clear Investigations and Red State (linked below respectively) have great stories on these two colleagues (comrades?) discussing how to remove Trump from office 2-weeks after he was inaugurated — insurance policy 2.0 two-weeks after Trump was inaugurated (!):
YouTube censored an upload of mine twice (maybe a third now? (see the RUSH audio here) — and the ONLY reason I can think is that I noted the name of the non-whistleblower in the description. I say non because the statute nowhere forbids a name from being uttered. It merely protects the individual from harassment and firing at work. So legally, the statute does not protect a name from being “revealed.” Here is some quotes by Gregg Jarrett via TIGER DROPPINGS (see also, TWITCHY):
Good and accurate legal analysis of why this whole shitshow is a legal farce. Neither the president nor a call with a foreign leader falls under the ICWBPA act, an act which incidentally does not grant anonymity protection.
nowhere in the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA) is anonymity even mentioned. Nor is it found in Presidential Policy Directive 19, which also provides specific whistleblower protections.
The Inspector General Act of 1978 prohibits the inspector general from releasing the name of a complainant, but this applies to no one else.
Under this framework, whistleblowers are granted certain rights against retaliation or reprisal in the workplace. In other words, they cannot be demoted, transferred, fired or otherwise penalized for filing a complaint that meets the statutory whistleblower requirements.
However, identity protection is neither provided for, nor contemplated, anywhere in the language.
As I first explained in a column six weeks ago, the so-called “whistleblower” is not a whistleblower at all. The complaint he filed against President Trump does not meet the two requisite conditions set forth in the ICWPA. That is, the alleged wrongful conduct must involve intelligence activity and it must be committed by a member of the intelligence community.
This was meticulously explained in an 11-page opinion by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) when it issued the following opinion: “The president is not a member of the intelligence community, and his communication with a foreign leader involved no intelligence operation or other activity aided at collecting or analyzing foreign intelligence.”
The OLC opinion made it clear that the complaint by the so-called “whistleblower” regarding Ukraine was so deficient that Congress should never have been notified. The acting director of national intelligence agreed with this assessment. The legal analysis and reasoning was sound.
In our constitutional form of government, the president is a unitary executive. He is not a member of any department or agency – they report to him.
To put it plainly, there is no whistleblower statute that permits an unelected and inferior federal employee to blow the whistle on the president, the most superior officer in the U.S. government.
Article II of the Constitution gives the president sweeping power to conduct foreign affairs, negotiate with leaders of other nations, make requests or solicit information.
The Constitution does not grant the power of review, approval or disapproval to bureaucratic employees. Indeed, the whistleblower law explicitly excludes a complaint involving “differences of opinion concerning public policy matters.”
So what should we call the fake “whistleblower”? It is more accurate to describe him as an undercover informant acting as a Democratic operative who spied on President Trump by gathering hearsay information intended to damage him.
Second, Adam Schiff released his name in a public transcript, as did the Mueller report. Here is a Twitter comment on the matter (NOQ REPORT):
Third, to be a whistleblower he — Eric Ciaramella — would have to have information related to his work. He merely passed along third-hand information… the statute (and the progression of the report up the chain of command ALL found this not to be a statute violate. GREGG JARRETT explains:
He also has DEEP ties to spreading lies about the Trump admin (a lie that Putin called Trump and asked him to fire Comey — um, can anyone say #fakenews?)
Now, China has removed all (I mean ALL — like 1984 stuff) references to South-Park and Winnie the Poo — MIC:
Larry Elder (listen to the first 2-minutes):
… this is getting concerning that FaceBook, Google, and YouTube would scrub mentioning a public, political name.
This was the original description on YouTube:
THIS VIDEO below has been removed by YouTube twice. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. But I removed almost all of the description in the text of it thinking that is why? (HERE IS MORE ON THAT!) Below is an expansion of the original comments and then some.
MUST LISTEN TO Rush Limbaugh — who reads from Rep. Lee Zeldin’s questioning of Ambassador Bill Taylor. The media went with the Democrats summary of the witness testimony — so the media [in other words] didn’t report just how horrible the witness was. As usual, it took a couple minutes to cut through the muck by a Republican. TWITCHY notes some of the devastating “fact” witness B.S.
The “Whistleblowers” name appears in both the Mueller Report (PUBLIC ACCESS) and released PUBLIC documents by Schiff. And, he is not a whistleblower. The statute does not say anywhere in it that a name cannot be released. It merely protects a whistleblower from being fired arbitrarily or having work-place harassment from happening. Second, the “blower” did not mention anything to do with intelligence from his community. He passed along (leaked) 3rd-hand information.
TWITCHY has a great story on Lee Zeldin’s cross-examination… here is one of the Tweets noted by them:
More RUSH STUFF:
Also, the lawyer for Ciaramella said he was beginning a coup against President Trump… something he should (and may) lose his law licence over. Here President Trump reads the Tweets you will dind below:
LEGAL INSURRECTION has more, but here are a couple Tweets by Zaid, dating back to the day of Trump inauguration (2017):
REMEMBER, the WASHINGTON POST also mentioned the impeachment plan had begun… 19-minutes after Trumps inauguration (NOQ REPORT):
Bill Whittle finds three reasons to break up Google, YouTube, Facebook and other social media companies that use algorithms to suppress free speech. This is not merely the revenge of the Right over demonetization. Bias without consent, practical monopoly status, and the distinction between carriers and publishers all lead to the conclusion that even conservatives should cheer the dissolution of these “private” businesses. The power of social media to suppress our messages has squeezed ad revenues to a trickle, and stopped many thousands of people from even seeing these videos. To survive and to advance the cause of common sense and decency, the Members at BillWhittle.com have taken up the challenge to fund this enterprise, and to share these videos with their networks of friends. Members have created a refuge for free thought, reason, civility and a lot of humor.
(Don’t forget the IRS scandal or lying to FISA Court judges, or the JournoLIST scandal or the ClimateGate issue [and the MANY others] in order to weaponize the government against conservatives or to push Leftist ideology by way of obfuscation of the truth.)
Bozell says, “This is the emerging of the greatest censorship of free speech worldwide in the history of man. Now, let me explain this, the left is on a jihad against conservative thought. It’s happening in academia, entertainment, business, religion, everywhere.” More from NEWSBUSTERS:

(CAUTION, Pat is an atheist, and thus he is VERY RAW in his points)
A society afraid of free speech is afraid of itself. Anyone who needs a safe space from other people’s opinions should be in therapy. The truth is incorrect and therefore inadmissible. The verdict is guilty, and the sentence is marginalization leading quickly to eradication. Pat Condell explains why we don’t belong in our own culture anymore (h-t, MOONBATTERY):
Also, included below is Pat’s removed video by YouTube, plus an intro to it:
Nobody’s feelings were consulted during the making of this video. Anyone who has a problem with that can drop dead.
This video was removed by YouTube two hours after it was uploaded. Google “feminists” don’t like criticism.
Restricted by YouTube, “A WORD TO THE CRIMINAL MIGRANT”, subtitled in Arabic, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Spanish, Swedish
“Folks on the left are trying to do on the Internet at Google-YouTube… what the left is doing at the universities: Stamping out all non-left ideas.”
The below is about the above video, take note that the following is from Big Peace:
Here’s an update on Youtube’s removal of Latma-TV’s English-subtitled “We Con The World” video – the parody of the politically correct posturing in the original “We Are The World” song. The Latma video parodied the singers as “Flotilla terrorists” singing about their propaganda tactics. The original English-subtitled video had over 3 million hits, before Youtube removed it due to a complaint of copyright violation on behalf of Warner/Chappell Music Inc. Versions with Hebrew subtitles can still be seen at Latma-TV channel here and within the Latma-TV weekly newscast.
The URLs of the removed videos were:
When Youtube removed the links to the English-subtitled video, they effectively stopped the then 3-million plus viral distribution just as it was expanding, eliminating potentially millions of other views (see the classic analysis on viral marketing projections by Alan L. Montgomery of Carnegie Mellon University).
Latma-TV sent a formal request to Youtube to put the parody video “We Con the World” back up. The producers received an email back on June 18, stating the video would be back up in 10-14 business days. July 9 will be “day 14,” so the deadline is near for Youtube’s staff to make the judgment that the English-subtitled video was a legitimate parody – and therefore protected under the “Fair Use” provision in the US copyright law.
Watch this space for updates as we count down to July 9.
Meanwhile – as a comparison – you can view two satirical parodies, both from the Left’s perspective, of the “We Are The World” song that were NOT removed from Youtube.
