Profiles of Treason – James Clapper

Guest Post by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

James Clapper was named the director of National Intelligence in 2010 by President Obama. The American people were told that Clapper understood the importance of working with Congress and to keep Congress informed.

The words of Obama have not been borne out. We now know of the perjury before Congress that Clapper suborned. James Clapper lied to Congress about the metadata being assembled by the National Security Agency on American citizens. In the words of Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) :

“One of the most important responsibilities a senator has is oversight of the intelligence communities and can not do this job if they do not get straight answers to direct questions.”

James Clapper failed this test. His response, when brought out in the open by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, was:

“I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful manner.” read more

Jim Jordan Accuser Begins to Fold

Isn’t it funny that when a good guy on the right decides to push back against his lying leftist accusers instead of just folding, as most spineless Republicans do, the leftists walk back their accusations.

Good for Jim Jordan for sticking to his guns.

from Conservative Review:

Former Ohio State wrestler walks back Jim Jordan accusations

There’s been a hiccup in the ongoing smear campaign against Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and the media is desperately spinning.

A former Ohio State wrestler who previously said Jordan knew of ongoing sexual abuse at Ohio State University by the wrestling team doctor now says he has no direct knowledge of what Jordan knew and is distancing himself from Jordan’s primary accuser, Michael DiSabato. read more

Profiles in Treason : John Brennan

Guest Post by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

CIA officials, including the upper echelons, are required to be apolitical. The main purpose of the CIA is to gather intelligence on America’s enemies abroad and guarantee the safety and security of the citizens of this country. The administration of CIA chief John Brennan came nowhere near meeting this standard.

Brennan used the CIA to lie for political ideological goals. This was shown earlier when Brennan used the CIA to conduct illegal surveillance on the Senate Intelligence Committee and then lied about it.

This is the same Brennan who coerced the FBI into investigating the sham of Trump-Russia collusion using the unverified Steele dossier. In Brennan’s own words: “Just because it is unverified doesn’t mean it isn’t true.”

This is the same Brennan that lied about NSA surveillance of American citizens and only avoided a perjury trial because he resigned, and the statute of limitations ran out because of obfuscation from the Obama administration. Brennan even had the audacity to proclaim he just gave the “least untruthful answer.” For anyone else, a lie like this would land them in jail. But the Obama administration and the sycophantic media ignored this crime, once again.

The administration of the CIA under the orders of Brennan operated as an offshoot of the Hillary campaign. Using spies and connections in England and Estonia, Brennan weaponized the CIA with phony intelligence obtained through these sources in his attempt to delegitimize the Trump candidacy. The goal was to cause maximum political damage to conservatives by utilizing a multiagency smear campaign that has led the government to end up in a sham of a Special Council investigation being used by the leftists to affect the midterms. read more

Oh There was Collusion All Right

from IBD:

Did Obama, Brennan And Clinton Illegally Collude To Take Trump Down?

As the saying goes, a fish rots from the head down. Well, so do bad governments. Recent revelations about the behavior of President Obama and his CIA director John Brennan in pushing the bogus Russian collusion investigation suggest that’s been the case.

The release of the FISA application by the FBI to investigate alleged collusion between Russia and President Trump’s campaign and recent comments made by top officials are eye opening.

Not only did President Obama know about the investigation, he seems to have pushed it from the very beginning. read more

Obama Knew of Hillary’s Secret E-Mail

from The Federalist:

IG Report Shows Obama Lied When He Said He Knew Nothing About Hillary’s Secret E-mail Scheme

In 2015, President Obama told America he only learned that his secretary of state Hillary Clinton was illegally using a private email server to conduct public business after The New York Times published a story saying so. Today’s release of a Department of Justice inspector general report shows that was a lie.

“FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account,” the report says in a footnote on page 89. “Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account.” read more

The Left Is Becoming More Desperate

from the American Thinker:

Progressives on the Brink

The Trump era has exposed the dark, vindictive, and oppressive side of liberalism, but that side has always existed.  “Progressives,” as they prefer to be known, have a long history of extremism going back to Woodrow Wilson’s Sedition Act of 1918 and FDR’s many power-grabbing activities, including the 1937 attempt to pack the Supreme Court.  Progressive thinking, because it attempts to impose an extreme vision of society on a public that resists its measures, is by its very nature authoritarian, antidemocratic, and elitist.  Liberalism is not the “party of the people,” as it has long claimed to be: it is, rather, a despotic philosophy that because of its intention of imposing “advanced” thinking on the masses can govern only through deceit and force.

WND Exclusive – Mueller’s Crushers

There is no way Trump should even consider sitting down with Mueller’s team and answering his set of inane and hopelessly open-ended gotcha questions.

The founders never intended for a sitting president to be indicted, tried criminally, or jailed. If they had, they would have included it the Constitution, or at the very least, would have debated the idea during the Convention in 1787. It’s not that they simply forgot to add it. read more

Podcast – Let’s Talk John Kerry, the Logan Act, and Dick’s Sporting Goods

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

By secretly and subversively negotiating with the terrorist nation of Iran, John Kerry is in clear violation of the Logan Act. Yet unlike many of Trump’s former associates, the FBI, Justice Department, the NSA and others don’t appear to wish to lift a finger to investigate or stop him. We are witnessing the unequal application of the law – again.

Gun manufacturer, Springfield Armory, announced it has severed ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods over their stance on guns, gun control and the Second Amendment. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the nation’s largest firearms trade association, has also, by unanimous vote, expelled Dick’s from membership in the organization. Good for both for taking a stand. read more

Union President Caught Interfering in Puerto Rican Schools

From The Washington Free Beacon:

Teachers’ union president Randi Weingarten is plotting a teachers’ strike to shut down schools in Puerto Rico, according to a conversation overheard Friday in the first-class car of an Acela train heading to New York.

Puerto Rico is in the midst of implementing school-choice reforms, opposed by Weingarten’s American Federation of Teachers. Last month Gov. Ricardo Rosselló signed legislation to increase the number of charter schools and voucher programs.

Weingarten said she does not want to use the word “strike,” but wants to use the strategy of recent teacher walkouts in Oklahoma and West Virginia as a model to fight against school-choice reforms. read more

McCabe Investigated Sessions?

from Katie Pavlich at Townhall:

Wait, What? Andrew McCabe Launched an FBI Investigation Into Attorney General Sessions Because Dems Asked Him To?

Wait, What? Andrew McCabe Launched an FBI Investigation Into Attorney General Sessions Because Dems Asked Him To?
It’s been less than a week since former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after a recommendation for termination from the Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility.The drama surrounding the lawful and justified firing hasn’t stopped since and late Wednesday night, ABC News dropped a bombshell story alleging Sessions was under FBI investigation last year for perjury. The man leading the charge? Andrew McCabe. read more
