The shutdown fearmongering continues apace, and Time magazine is dutifully passing along the administration's talking points. Here's the latest: the government work stoppage could drive cash-starved spies into the arms of other countries. It would make otherwise patriotic Americans become traitors.
An ongoing government shutdown heightens the risk that American intelligence officers could be flipped as double agents, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Wednesday.
No, but I did hear that the Nat. Park Service has closed Trail Ridge Road in Rcky. Mtn. Nat. Park. One of only two roads into Estes Park after the thousand year flood wiped out the three main routes into the valley.
Oh unicorn skittles! If a government spy would turn on his country for missing a few weeks to a few months pay, then they sure the L would turn on their government even whilst being paid. Bunch of what-if jackazzes!
(To Mr. Clapper). If you, as the DNI, have done such a p*ss poor job of overseeing the vetting your spies to the extent that you willfully allow folks in these sensitive positions that think it is cool to make ~six figures and live paycheck to paycheck, and are willling to turn as soon as they miss a paycheck, you should be fired and tried for treason yourself.
Zero is really ginning up his MSM and political apparatchiks, turning the dial to ‘11.’
Time, the NYT, the WP...
And they’re worried about spies?
I thought that by now TIME would've changed their name to “The Amerikan Communist Really Really True News Magazine” by now.
Only “News”weak is more to the Left when it comes to national magazines that used to be mainstream (in the distant past).
Sorry, TIME, but most Americans are not as eager to stab America in the back and throw away their loyalty for whatever it is that the Leftists give you.
How many pieces of silver did they give you to become a mouthpiece for Socialism?
My guess is 30.
The way Clapper thinks, I think he has the CLAP!
(For those who don’t know diseases, syphillis corrodes the brain and impairs mental functions - an apt description of the Obama dictatorship).
it’s the old blackmail adage of give money to schools for better schooling. This is like tarp rewarding bad.
So, Obama may change sides and actually work for America?
“This article is from the Onion, right?”
Certainly, the Onion would be more honest than Time as the Onion makes no illusions that it is the truth while Time claims to be non-fiction.
What is patriotic, and what is traitorous? The very meanings of those words have become suspect, as concerns the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut.
The Ministry of Love and the Ministry of Truth are both working overtime, government shutdown be cursed. These agencies provide the most essential services under the reigning power now based in the territory once known as “the United States of America”.
And there is no maximum level of stupidity. No matter what heights it may rise to, that level can always be exceeded, by a really determined and innovative boob.
Time for a bad joke, Graewoulf:
Mrs. Obama is so fat that she would need TWO insurance policies to cover her condition!
Badda bing, badda boom!
This article will scare the crap out of dozens of people in dentists’ offices coast to coast.
Paging Jack Bauer!
You mean like Al Gore and Bill Clinton when they took all that Chinese money? Wait, the government wasn’t shut down then. And by the way, is Obama a non-essential government worker? He thinks he’s a king, but he works for us. Maybe they should start paying all these government employees out of the Democrat party accounts. We ALL pay his salary. The Democrat party doesn’t own him.
If their loyalty is so tenuous, then I would put much stock in any intelligence they provided anyway!
This is total and utter BS!
Cash-starved spies? LOL. How about all the lunatic America-hating ideologues this admin is packed with? What about Bradley Manning & Wikileaks? What about Hillary & Benghazi?
She’s so ugly, when she walks into a store the ugly sensors on the security cameras turn the cameras off!
Hey ... whoa!
