James Clapper: ‘It Is My Duty’ to Attack Trump as TV Pundit
Breitbart ^ | 26 July 2018 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 07/26/2018 8:21:15 PM PDT by BlackFemaleArmyColonel

NEW YORK — Amid reports that President Trump is exploring the possibility of removing security clearances from former top Obama administration officials, it may be instructive to take a closer look at former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s recently released book.

Inside the work, titled “Facts and Fears,” Clapper reveals that he feels it is his “duty” to speak out publicly against Trump by writing the book and doing television appearances, especially on CNN where he is a contributor. Clapper lists a litany of anti-Trump charges, and repeatedly makes clear that his public appearances are aimed at countering Trump’s presidency.

Explaining why he decided to make public pronouncements against Trump after leaving the Obama administration, Clapper writes that “speaking critically of our current president is counterinstinctive and difficult for me to do, but I feel it is my duty.”

He continued with an anti-Trump tirade, saying, “We have elected someone as president of the United States whose first instincts are to twist and distort truth to his advantage, to generate financial benefit to himself and his family, and, in so doing, to demean the values this country has traditionally stood for. He has set a new low bar for ethics and morality. He has caused damage to our societal and political fabric that will be difficult and will require time to repair.”

Clapper presents numerous other unsubstantiated charges against Trump that highlight his aim to use public appearances to oppose the president.

The pinkos who run the so-called “news” media are nothing more than shills for the Democrat Party.

It isn’t your duty to hold a security clearance while you’re doing it.

The man who spied on Congress and then lied about doing such, the man who politicized and weaponized the CIA - somehow feels he has a moral obligation to falsely attack the duly elected President of the United States.

Partisan propagandist.

How many times did he speak out against Obama?

It’s your job.

Your duty is another thing and I flushed it down the toilet this morning.

I think what he meant to say is the DNC and George Soros had both given him his marching orders, and he's too big a pussy to say no.

I'll be adding this to my posts for a few days, once per thread I participate on.


Red Pill People > We Need to Know About

John Stossil intro explains: (first three people)

Candace Owens
Brandon Tatum
CJ Pearson

Larry Elder (Conservative talk show host - Los Angeles / back into the 80s [ I believe ] )
Coleman Hughes (undergraduate at Quillette) additional link
Jesse Lee Peterson (someone we've known about since before 2001)


These people are opening up the eyes of Blacks from within their ranks.

I think it's important we know who they are and promote them when we can.

I may be the last to know of them, but I don't want anyone else not to know, so here's the info.

Even if you knew about them before, this might be a decent resource for finding their work.

When you hit the links above, you'll see Google's information page.

You'll be able to learn more about them using links there.

Click on the VIDEO button at the top and you'll be taken to a list of their YouTube videos.

Enjoy.


I'm sure I've left people out, so I'd appreciate folks mentioning them to me so I can add them to this short list.

Clapper has never done his duty before. Why would he start now?

These people are evil. It seems like their leftist thinking is exactly backward so they see good as evil and they see evil as good.

He’s been read-in for operational details of Mockingbird, so why would anyone be surprised he has been ordered to undermine and criticize Trump?

Yes, and they also exist in a multi-layer bubble of Washington DC, their own bureaucracy, and then their own intelligence circles.

They have all the information of the world at their fingertips, but then become stupid from their arrogance and from believing their own propaganda.

It was your duty to uphold the Constitution too, but you didn’t do that very well, now did you?
