    She's not sure his programs will work. And he might be connecting with people's base emotions. But, subject to those caveats, Doris Kearns-Goodwin was willing to admit that President Trump has "made a connection" with Americans. Appearing on the Tuesday edition of CNN's New Day and after host John Berman acknowledged Trump's connection with his base, the historian and former LBJ staffer replied: "He's made them feel that he's on their side, which is an important thing that a politician can do. I’m fighting for you. Now whether the programs that he's enacted really are going to help them or...

    How America’s most powerful agencies were weaponized against President Donald Trump. Although the details remain complex, the structure underlying Spygate—the creation of the false narrative that candidate Donald Trump colluded with Russia, and the spying on his presidential campaign—remains surprisingly simple:

    (this story is 1 year old) Evidence shows that John Roberts, chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, was “hacked” by a Deep State surveillance operation overseen by Obama administration CIA director John Brennan and Obama director of national intelligence James Clapper. Roberts, the Bush appointee who made the decisive vote to uphold the constitutionality of Obamacare before the 2012 election, was allegedly the victim of the same Deep State surveillance program that spied on President Donald Trump.

  • Ex-CIA Chief John Brennan Encourages Deep State to Defy President Trump’s Declassification Order

    The Deep State is in an obvious panic mode since President Donald Trump ordered a number of documents relating to the Russia investigation be declassified. Joining the loud choir of those who are pushing for insubordination against the president is former CIA Director John Brennan. Appearing on MSNBC on Tuesday, Brennan urged people in the intelligence community to ignore the president’s order. The former CIA head was stripped of his security clearance by Trump in August for his bizarre behavior.

    Bill McRaven, former chancellor of the University of Texas System and a current UT-Austin professor, resigned on Aug. 20 from the Pentagon’s technology advisory board, multiple news outlets reported Thursday. His resignation came four days after The Washington Post published an opinion piece he wrote that criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan. “Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation,” McRaven wrote. “If you think for a moment that your...

    On NBC’s Thursday morning broadcast of the “Today” show, former CIA director John Brennan repeatedly praised the unknown author of the New York Times’s recent anti-Trump op-ed as a supreme example of “courageous” American patriotism. While admitting that the anonymous writer was committing “active insubordination” with the piece, Brennan justified his or her actions by claiming that because Trump is too “unfit” to be President, the writer is admirably trying to “prevent disasters” in the future. “I think there are two major takeaways,” Brennan told “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie in relation to the op-ed. “One is, what the author...

    Former CIA director John Brennan, now an MSNBC commentator and frequent critic of President Donald Trump, praised former quarterback Colin Kaepernick for his new Nike campaign. “Well done, Colin, well done,” he wrote approvingly on Twitter Monday evening to the athlete who once wore socks to football practice that portrayed police officers as pigs. Kaepernick launched his new Nike campaign on Labor Day, asserting that he sacrificed his football career for his right to kneel during the national anthem. Brennan praised Kaepernick for his protest, asserting that it brought attention to “racial injustice” in America. “He did so not to...

    The Hill ^ | 08/31/18 | Red Jahncke
    Another profession has closed ranks around a few bad actors. Despite the protestations of almost 200 former intelligence officials, common sense suggests that there was good reason to revoke John Brennan’s security clearance. The notion that revocation infringes upon his First Amendment free-speech rights is belied by Brennan’s subsequent behavior because the former CIA director continues — unchecked by any Trump administration official — to lash out at the president at every opportunity via any available media channel. Brennan fails the first and foremost qualification for a security clearance: the ability to keep a secret. In a New York Times...

    …..He's "really concerned," just as most people who don't know anything about politics are. It's interesting that he mentioned violence in the streets on this, the 50th anniversary of the "Days of Rage" that blew up the Democratic convention in 1968. That convention and the violence that surrounded it defined the New Left and that generation of activists. So could it really happen today? Those were entirely different times. America was a different country, young people were different, and the issues were a matter of life and death for many. As much as the left tries to gin up hysteria...

    Bill Maher, host of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, told former CIA Director John Brennan that he considers President Trump a “traitor” on Friday. Maher was referring to an incident in which Trump absolved Russia of blame, taking the perspective of Vladimir Putin over the accounts of his own intelligence agencies, during a July 16 press conference with the Russian leader in Helsinki. (He later reversed his comments.) "He takes their side and not ours. That's a traitor," Maher said. Maher brought up remarks Brennan made after the press conference. "You used terms like that, after Helsinki, you said...

    In April, 2008, after the story became public, candidate Obama told a San Francisco crowd that during his college years he took a trip to Pakistan. This came as a surprise to reporters, and the candidate’s two autobiographies, Dreams from My Father (1995) and The Audacity of Hope (2006), made no mention of any trip to Pakistan. What the college student did there is not exactly clear, and some in the region found it disturbing. “Why did he keep mum on his visit to Pakistan till this question was raised?” wondered India’s former counterterrorist chief Bahukutumbi Raman. “Has he disclosed...

    On or about Tuesday, 1 March 2016, CIA Director John Brennan flew to Moscow. He went to the offices of the Russian equivalent to the CIA, the Federal Security Service (FSB)—successor to the KGB—and he went “somewhere else” (yes, that’s exactly what Russia’s foreign ministry said about it). He did not to go to the foreign ministry. ... At almost the exact same time, in “late February or early March,” a world-class nobody living in London named George Papadopoulos somehow got his resumé pumped full of hot fluff by somehow becoming listed as a member of the London Centre of...

    John Brennan may not know it, but he’s acting in a drama scripted and produced by Donald J. Trump. As Eli Lake perceptively observed, President Trump isn’t trying to silence Brennan by revoking his security clearance, as the former CIA director’s defenders insist, but elevate him as a foil. Trump couldn’t hope for a better poster boy for the so-called “deep state” than a former CIA chief who immediately began to sound like a commentator for MSNBC upon leaving government — and, indeed, signed up as a commentator for MSNBC. It has been the usual practice of former top intelligence...

    This was the first time on record that a prominent elected official ever committed treason — which usually involves giving away the nation’s secrets or compromising intelligence assets — at a public event extensively covered by the international media. What did Brennan mean by his charge? He apparently doesn’t know. Pressed by Rachel Maddow of MSNBC, Brennan explained, incoherently, that “I said it was nothing short of treasonous. I didn’t mean that he committed treason.” Oh. Asked point-blank if he thinks that the president is serving the Russian government, he said that “I scratch my head a lot,” not the...
