  • Revoking Brennan’s Security Clearance: The Right Thing, Even if for the Wrong Reason

    National Review ^ | Aug 18, 2018 | Andrew McCarthy
    I do not share my friend David French’s theoretical constitutional concerns about the president’s revocation of security clearances — at least when it comes to former government officials who become media commentators and have no demonstrable need for a security clearance. Like David and many other analysts, though, I think it’s a big mistake to politicize the revocation of security clearances. Still, I am even less of a fan of the politicization of intelligence itself. And that justifies the revocation of former CIA director John Brennan’s clearance. As is often the case with President Trump, the right thing has been...
  • Is #TheResistance a Psyop?

    Psychological Operations (Psyop) are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals. In other words, it is the government or other powerful groups creating and spreading specific narratives. The purpose of a Psyop is to induce or reinforce behavior favorable to US government objectives. First, let’s talk about which narratives the government would most likely want us to buy into, which would be narratives that are most beneficial to them. They would want us to despise their enemies, both foreign...

    “Methinks thou dost protest too much!” Here is video of bitter NeverTrumper Phil Mudd on CNN having a total meltdown last night because Conservative Paris Dennard actually called him and others with Security Clearances out for trading on those clearances to get consulting and commentating gigs. Mudd rose to prominence at CNN after he consistently trashed Donald Trump on air. CNN could bring him on as an “Intelligence Expert” and know he would always hammer Trump. Here, Paris Dennard says it is widely known in Washington that if you have a Security Clearance you will get paid more money to...

    Rick Wilson is a long-time Republican strategist and the architect of all manner of knives-out campaign ads, including one particularly vicious spot from the 2008 presidential campaign that hammered Barack Obama’s connection to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright with the tag: “Barack Obama: Too Radical, Too Risky.” He helped start the Never Trump movement. It cost him friends and all manner of potential political work. It subjected him to the threats and fury of Trump’s troll army. He was labelled a Rino (Republican in name only) and a party traitor. And he didn’t care. Right is right, and Trump was clearly,...

    An unruly passenger was arrested Thursday morning at Orlando International Airport and the incident was caught on camera. Jeffrey Epstein is charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, trespassing after a warning and disorderly conduct, according to an arrest affidavit from the Orlando Police Department. Police said they were called to investigate reports of an unruly passenger at the American Airlines ticket counter just before 6 a.m. Police said that Epstein began to yell when he saw the officers arrive. After talking with police, Epstein began to calm down, but became agitated when he learned the airline...

    "This action is part of a broader effort by Mr. Trump to suppress freedom of speech & punish critics. It should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out. My principles are worth far more than clearances. I will not relent," Brennan tweeted after the announcement. iam McRaven, the man who oversaw the 2011 Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden, issued a stunning rebuke of President Donald Trump's decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan on Thursday, defending the former spy chief as "one of the finest public...

    Omarosa Manigault is no longer at the Trump White House, but she was apparently a trainwreck, she secretly recorded conversations, including in the Situation Room, and has accused President Trump of being mental diminished because of this soda habit. In truth, liberals would eat this up. I’m sure a few are, but the source is Omarosa. That’s the issue. Even liberal outlets, like Slate, along with a host of media figures unfriendly to the president have torched Omarosa’s credibility. Yet, here we are with the racism stuff again. Omarosa has accused Trump of being racistand apparently there’s an infamous tape,...

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Bill Kristol, from the Weekly Standard, went from a leading conservative voice and Obama critic to a Trump hater who worked with Obama to derail the Trump Campaign. Kristol fell so far that he started pushing the Trump – Russia dossier at the same time as John Brennan and the Obama team. Kristol went from leading conservative voice to being the leader of the anti-Trump “conservative” movement in a matter of a few years. Kristol and The Weekly Standard published articles smearing The Gateway Pundit for supporting the Republican Presidential candidate.

    Former “Celebrity Apprentice” star Penn Jillette had the perfect opportunity to smear President Donald Trump in a recent Vulture interview titled, “In Conversation: Penn Jillette Talking magic, truth, and Trump’s alleged Apprentice Tapes.” As the name implies, the interview was, by and large, a probe for damaging information about Donald Trump, namely Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s claim that there is a tape of him using the N-word on “Celebrity Apprentice.” As Glenn noted on Wednesday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Jillette is no fan of Trump. And yet, after saying he was “in the room” and had overheard Trump saying...

    It’s easy to laugh at this weekend’s Unite the Right rally. It was pathetic. Media outnumbered white supremacists, and counterprotesters outnumbered the media. If that’s the alt-right in 2018, then public white supremacy in the United States is reverting back to its pre-2015 norm — when you could always find a couple dozen neo-Nazis to march somewhere, but you’d rarely see the kind of numbers we watched in Charlottesville. But as the alt-right fades (for now), let’s not forget its legacy. And let’s not turn our heads from its malignant influence. Consider what happened between 2015 and yesterday’s pitiful march.

    Penn Jillette is claiming that President Donald Trump made “racially insensitive” remarks during his time on Celebrity Apprentice, which were captured on tapes that still exist. Jillette, a professional magician who appeared on season 12 of the NBC reality series, confirmed to Vulture in a new interview that series creator Mark Burnett has tapes of Trump making the controversial statements. Burnett did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Trump “would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable. I don’t think he ever said anything in that room like ‘African-Americans are inferior’ or anything about rape or grabbing women,...

    Comedian and magician Penn Jillette said in a new interview that he heard President Trump "say racially insensitive things that made [him] uncomfortable" during tapings of "Celebrity Apprentice" as new claims from ex-White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," make headlines. Jillette, who was a contestant on the show in 2013, told Vulture in an interview published Tuesday that Trump would "ramble" during tapings of his former reality TV show... Jillette told Vulture that he “can emotionally tell you things that happened racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of compassion when I was...

    The #NeverTrumpumpkins define themselves by their visceral distaste for the president. He offends their fastidious sensibilities, outrages them with his unfiltered Twitter musings, and violates their sense of propriety with his secular hedonism and sheer joy in his own vulgarity. That he’s also delivering the most conservative administration in history is, to them, beside the point—because Trump neither represents nor embodies “movement” conservatism. And therein, for them, lies the problem. Movements are, almost by definition, attractive to the young and the emotionally immature. Followers love to follow; even more, they love to memorize catechisms and rote talking points, which they...

And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”Shapiro responded to that by saying, among other things:“Have you met me? Have you seen me? Do I seem like the kind of guy...

    Trump is going to win in a landslide... So he should announce he is running on the Libertarian Ticket in 2020. Get all his supporters to switch to Libertarian the next day. Relegate the eGOP to third-party status overnight. They are just a bunch of feckless wiener-heads anyway, and part of the swamp-dweller class.
