Plots, Plans and Clickbait

2 million

I rarely check blog stats but I did today
and this obscure blog has over two million
page views. Thank you for taking time out of
your lives to drop by.

Russian Plan

Clearly it will involve Boris, Natasha and Fearless Leader.

The only way to thwart their evil plot to conquer America is to require voter ID and demand that people appear personally at each voting place.

It might not stop the dead from voting in Chicago because it's a tradition there, but most of the damage can be averted...if the Democrats are interested in stopping Russian meddling.

Victor Davis Hanson has a good piece. It's short, worth a read, "Just How Far will the Left Go?"


How Low will they Go?

Sen. Rand Paul called Monday for President Trump to revoke former CIA director John Brennan's security clearance, as he questioned whether the Obama-era spy boss was “monetizing” his access to sensitive information in his new role as a pundit.

“Is John Brennan monetizing his security clearance? Is John Brennan making millions of dollars divulging secrets to the mainstream media with his attacks on @realDonaldTrump?” Paul tweeted early Monday.
Is former CIA Director John Brennan cashing in with the corrupt, lying, smug, scamming, elite mainstream media by trashing President Trump? That much is undeniable. CNN pays Brennan to go on its shows and lie about the President. Same with Big Jim Comey, now a Democrat Party insider. They're paid millions to keep the ratings up in the failing networks, and we all know the business of media is in the ratings.

What is John Brennan's access to CURRENT intelligence? Getting the information requires two things: (a) clearance and (b) access. My sense is that while Brennan and other former DCI's have clearance, their access to current information is very limited. They're still allowed in the CIA HQ, can go to the executive cafeteria and have lunch and hang out (clearance), but that's about it.

Bottom Line: John Brennan accused President Trump of being a traitor. It's one of if not the only federal crime punishable by death. In exchange, Rand Paul is asking that Brennan's ticket to the 7th floor at CIA be canceled. 

Personal Note: I've met John Brennan and Jim Clapper. Brennan is a consummate stuffed shirt with a personal love of Islam, which explains his appeal to President Obama. 

General Clapper is a 77 year old retired Air Force Lt. General. Clapper isn't as cunning as Brennan but he knows the Pentagon game and made his living doing insider fighting in the heart of the largest and best funded Byzantine Empire  (the Pentagon) the world has ever known. While General Clapper has proven to be a bit of a cur, lying to Congress about NSA spying activities on US Citizens, I can't help but admit that I still like him - sorta. In much the same way that I like a cobra in a zoo that is behind safety glass. Brennan, on the other hand has all the endearment of a New Orleans wharf rat.

  1. Am seeing this quote from Clapper around the web---

    "If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place."

    Your thoughts? Rats starting to abandon ship?

    1. That's a telling quote as to the Obama influence on the Mueller persecution.

    2. General Clapper is loose enough with his chatter to say that and speak the truth without thinking through what he's saying. I know that may not be what one would expect for a former Director of National Intelligence but it's pure Jim Clapper.

  2. Yep, Brennan's pro muslim stance dovetailed well with Obama's.

  4. Exactly right on the security clearance. It's always clearance and then access based on need to know, right? His need ought to be between zero and negative. If the tin foil hat brigade was right and "they" could erase memories, they should.

    Brennan comes across as anti-Western and anti-American. I recall him referring to Jerusalem by its Palestinian name, and joking about how it would drive the right nuts. It was a warning sign.

    1. AND did you hear that Israel declared itself a "Jewish State" officially as part of their cannon of law? The Left may get around to howling about it in the US (right now they want to kill President Trump), but the Palestinians are outraged.

      I always thought that it was a Jewish State, but apparently they had to turn one more key to make it legal.

    2. I always thought it was a Jewish State, too.

    3. The Israeli Knesset passed what is now known as the thirteenth Basic Law. This latest law, called the Nation-State Law, recognizes Israel as the fulfillment of the Zionist dream declaring that Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people, and “the actualization of the right of national self-determination in the state of Israel is unique to the Jewish people.” In Israel which has no constitution, Basic Laws in Israel have the same power as the constitution in America.

      The Nation State law had been in development for seven years. It declares that Israel is the actualization of the historical and religious right of the Jewish people. It says Hebrew is the official language, but Arabic has a special status and must be treated the same as it was before the law was enacted. Saturdays and Jewish Holidays are the official days of rest in the state, however people of other faiths must be allowed to observe their holidays and days of rest. The law reaffirmed that all of the freedoms that were guaranteed to ALL Israelis no matter what their faith. It affirms that an undivided Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and asserts that Jewish settlement (without specifying where) is a national value, and promises to encourage and advance settlement efforts. Finally, it indicates that Israel will work to ensure the safety of Jews all across the diaspora as well as their historical and cultural heritage.

      It is important to note that the law does not supersede the Israeli Declaration of Independence

    1. Two million page views seems like a lot to me, but some of the other bloggers who drift past here have 10 million plus. So I'm not puffed up about the number. It's just kind that people come by and read or have a chuckle.

  9. He has no business maintaining a clearance. His access should be terminated immediately.

    And then charges filed.....

  10. No one is forced to read a blog. Your's is worthwhile to many people including me.

    Just a thought about President Trump/Helsinki. All this frothing about Trump not believing his intelligence people and none about why a sitting President, duly and lawfully elected, cannot trust his intelligence people. Shouldn't the heat be on the intelligence people?

    1. The FBI is still working at cross purposes with the President. Mueller and DOJ are working at cross purposes with the President. Gina Haspert has CIA under control. The President was gored by an ox during his election with Barack pulling the levers. BUT he's working hard to MAGA and is succeeding.

      Don't hold your breath for the mainstream media to do anything but attack the President. Many of them openly want a worse economy...and they want to win back the blue collar voter.

  11. The old "long march through the institutions" prospered under the Magic Muslim.

    Judging by the hysteria coming out of Brennan, Comey & Co that's under threat.

    1. Obama could end up being indicted himself if Comey and/or Brennan roll (rat hearts).

      The bright side is that Michelle Obama would be free'd up to strike up a romantic relationship with Whoopie Goldberg.

  12. Don't you see the resemblance between Natasha and Fox News info-babe Dagan McDowell?
