The hysteria from parts of our government, the media and people living on the coasts keeps reaching a crescendo and then topping it.
How to explain the insanity of the rantings from Keith Olbermann (check out this video: http://www.wnd.com/2016/12/ex-tv-newsman-has-meltdown-over-usurper-trump/) to the crazies lamenting Trump on the View to this recent tweet by a Politico reporter:
(She has since been fired by Politico for this – a moot point since she was already leaving – and taken up by The Atlantic. And, by the way, Kirsten Powers formerly of Fox News tweeted this: People need to lay off @juliaioffe. She apologized, but of course Twitter wants her burned at the stake. She’s a great journo. Period.” So much for her objectivity.)
Then the recounts by Jill Stein, the Russian hacking story pushed by The New York Times and the attempt to stop electors from casting their states’ votes; it’s unlikely anything we’ve seen. Perhaps the full moon I saw this morning is as good an explanation as any.
However, it gets worse. There’s really a civil war going on at some of our governmental agencies, in particular the CIA, the FBI, Defense Department and with the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper. The good guys in all these are fighting off the bad guys who have everything to lose when Trump takes over. The subversives are petrified they will lose their jobs, so it is a death fight for them and they’ll do anything they can.
John Brennan at the CIA is the worst offender. Remember him? He’s the guy who wrote the talking points for the Benghazi scandal.
A blog by a former CIA analyst, Larry Johnson has his own interpretation of the goings on:
This should be setting off alarm bells throughout the U.S. Government, but especially within the intel community and the military. CIA Director John Brennan appears to have tried and failed to take out Donald Trump. It is his Agency that spread the lie that Russia made it possible for Trump to win the Presidency. This was not the idle opinion of some underling. Someone was given permission to tell elected Legislators a lie. A bald faced lie. Brennan, and no one else, bears ultimate responsibility for this lie.
When the news first broke last Friday that the CIA had told Senators that Russia essentially gave the election to Donald Trump the politicians and pundits infesting Washington were up in arms. Hell, even John McCain and Lindsay “Little Old Lady” Graham jumped on the hysteria bandwagon to voice outrage and threaten Russia. Tonight we learn that Brennan was lying.
Here’s the report on Fox:
“The House Intelligence Committee abruptly canceled a briefing set for Thursday on alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election, after intelligence agencies refused to provide representatives for the session, Fox News is told.
“Amid concerns about reports that conflict with details previously provided to the committee, Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had requested a closed, classified briefing Thursday for committee Republican and Democratic members from the FBI, CIA, Office of the Director of National Intelligence and National Security Agency.
“But Fox News is told the agencies refused to provide briefers, which is unusual given the panel is the most-senior committee with jurisdiction.”
I have heard from knowledgeable friends that Clapper finally decided he would not walk the plank for John Brennan. Clapper has lied once before to the Senate and apparently felt that he could stomach no more lies. This isolated Brennan. He has no place to hide now. He could have sent a briefer who would have had to endure the indignity of admitting that the CIA had no hard evidence to buttress its speculation that Russia favored Trump.
This is more than a lie folks. This represents the first time in my life that the Director of the CIA has tried to intervene and disrupt a Presidential election. Brennan should be immediately dismissed and he should pray to God (or Allah) that he is not prosecuted for sedition. Given his prior service as the Chief of Station in Saudi Arabia, one begins to wonder if he has been protecting the interests of America or serving those of a foreign power?
The damage this will do to the CIA is dangerous for America. It has once again cried wolf, and no wolf was there. Its credibility is tarnished, perhaps beyond repair. The aura of an outfit dedicated to the truth regardless of the political party in power is destroyed. We are left, instead, with the wreckage of petty bureaucracy more keen on playing politics and slanting facts rather than getting the best information and telling the truth.
This also completely destroys the Democrat effort to gather support to brief the Electors, who have no security clearances. How in the world can you justify briefing Electors when you are refusing to brief members of Congress who do have the clearances?
Damn you John Brennan. You have dishonored the sacrifice of many brave intelligence officers who have given their lives believing they were serving a higher cause. You have put America at risk.
Explains a lot, doesn’t it?
And don’t forget to watch the video from Olbermann. He’s jumped the shark, a whale and a Navy carrier with this one.
