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

Podcast – Jim Acosta – Spies not from Russia – DACA to Restart

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Before I begin speaking about Jim Acosta, I quickly discuss a new play about Anne Frank, where the Nazis are replaced with ICE agents. Yep – that’s right.

Don’t blame Jim Acosta for trying to shape the news. Blame Walter Cronkite, the once most trusted man in America.

Senator Diane Feinstein had a spy on her payroll for 20 years. Oh, you haven’t heard. Maybe because she’s a democrat and the spy was not Russian, but Chinese.

A lower court federal judge is demanding the restart of the DACA program. I discuss why he has no authority to make such a demand. read more

House “First Step Act” is Weak on Crime

from Conservative Review:

GOP Sens meet with Trump to get him to support weak-on-crime laws

You can’t make this stuff up. The president criticizes the Koch brothers for their stance on crime and immigration. He then peppers every one of his candidate endorsements with an assessment of that candidate’s views on crime. Clearly, the president is the only one who even focuses on this issue. Good for him. But thanks to jailbreak Jared Kushner, Trump is getting sucked into one of the Koch’s biggest priorities – passing a bill that will retroactively release a number of violent drug traffickers and criminal aliens from federal prison…during a time when we’re experiencing one of the worst drug crises in our history! read more

Is San Diego Punishing Border Wall Contractors – or Themselves

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Oh look. Government is picking winners and losers again. What a stunner.

But this time it isn’t the federal government, but one State and several municipalities within this State. If you guessed California, you win absolutely nothing except my admiration and knowledge that you are plugged in. Although certainly my admiration is worth more.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that, “San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.”

More and more cities in the Golden State are simply refusing to do business with any company who has or intends to have anything to do with the Southern border wall. If you are a construction company who built a prototype or bid on anything that has to do with Trump’s wall, you will not be allowed to work or even bid on any San Diego city projects. read more

Video Podcast – Korean War Remains Returned – GDP Growth

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The remains of multiple of U.S. troops killed in the Korean War more than six decades ago are headed back to America now after North Korean officials turned them over to military officials, the White House announced Thursday night. In all, 55 cases of remains were return so far.

And you probably noticed the United Nations banner wrapped around the crates rather than the American flag. There’s a reason for that. It ain’t a good one, but it’s America’s fault. More precisely, it’s an American President’s fault.

And let’s talk GDP growth, and why it may end up being a problem. Why? Three words: The Federal Reserve. read more

Mueller and the Poison that is Washington

from The American Spectator:

The civil libertarians of the press — those card-carrying ACLU members who toss and turn at night worrying about the diminution of “privacy” — all rushed to the defense of the FBI after the release of its disgracefully flimsy FISA warrant on Carter Page. The hypocrisy of it all takes one’s breath away, as reporters and commentators, normally so censorious of privacy violations, coldly cheered the government’s harassment of Page. 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

Trump Should Reconsider His Tariff War with China

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Now let’s not get ahead of ourselves on this.

Most of us have heard that the Trump administration has a plan to “temporarily” aid American pork, dairy and soy bean farmers to the tune of about $12 billion. This is as a result of China raising its import tariffs on those American products as retaliation for Trump’s tariff increase on Chinese goods.

Many it seems have written about this as if it’s already happened. Well, it hasn’t.

As Conservative Review writes, “News of the supposed plan was leaked to the media by anonymous sources, so it is possible that this is just an idea being floated to see how the public reacts.”

However, if true, it’s a bad idea. Government “assistance,” no matter how temporary they claim it to be, is just a bailout. No different from any other bailout. And that’s never a good thing for the American people.

And as an aside, how many government assistance programs can you name that were ever really temporary. How about none. read more

Video Podcast – Trumps Words are Just That – Words

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

It’s patently obvious that both the left and establishment right hate president Trump.

Over the years, with practically every other politician, we have accepted that what they say should be taken with a massive grain of salt.

But now all of a sudden, we’re expected to treat Trump differently. Now every “word” he utters evidently carries the weight of the world. Well, I’m here to tell you – that’s crap.

All of us should have figured out by now that Trump just says stuff, maybe strategically, or merely to get a rise out of some. Because of the visceral hatred they have of him, they will never cut him any slack like they’ve done with so many before him.

Well, they’re just words folks. Time to get over it.
