SECURITY CLEARANCE ISN’T A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT

Of all the nonsense that has been generated since Donald Trump’s divinely-inspired victory in 2016, probably the silliest has involved scumbag/commie-John Brennan’s finally losing his security clearance.

The fact is that nobody has satisfactorily explained why any former member of the federal government shouldn’t automatically lose his or her clearance after leaving the job. Those who have made the attempt have been forced to suggest it’s because current members of the Trump administration might wish to pick the brains of their predecessors. When I first heard that theory expressed, I thought it was a joke. But it turned out I was the only person laughing.

Can you imagine any situation when Mike Pompeo, John Bolton or Dan Coats would say to himself: “I wonder what scumbag/commie-John Brennan,  scumbag-James Clapper, Andrew McCabe, scumbag-James Comey, Peter Strzok. Michael Hayden thinks about this. I better give the genius a call”?

A far better question is why any of these people ever got the job in the first place. That is particularly true when it comes to scumbag/commie-John Brennan, who went directly from the CIA to MSNBC, showing an unnatural affinity for initials. I have to wonder how a man who, in the 1976 presidential election, in the midst of the Cold War, cast his ballot for the man who was on the Soviet payroll, Gus Hall, could possibly be entrusted to oversee our national security.

Louisiana’s Senator John Kennedy, who, alone among members of Congress, has a gift for the bon mot, refers toscumbag/commie-Brennan as a butthead.

If you listened to the other buttheads on TV, including Carl Bernstein, Mark Warner, Richard Blumenthal and scumbag-James Clapper, you would have thought that denying security clearance to a Never-Trumper who is currently employed at a cable news network was tantamount to blowing up the Washington Monument.

Some called it “Nixonian” and referred to it as “unprecedented,” seemingly unaware of the fact that if Richard Nixon had done something similar, it could not also be unprecedented.

We even had a retired admiral, William McRaven, who was so upset at the idea of scumbag/commie-Brennan’s being publicly shamed that the nincompoop asked that his own clearance be revoked. I had initially misspelled the admiral’s name, believing it was McCraven, which, all things considered, is what it should have been.

If I had his ear, I would tell the admiral that unless he was currently working for the federal government and could be trusted to keep a secret, he should not have security clearance. And judging by his loony and disloyal comment, I’d say he never should have had it.

Security clearance should not be confused with the gold watch they hand retirees on their way out the door.

What is truly unprecedented is that the former head of the CIA would label a sitting President a traitor, meaningscumbag/commie-Brennan believes that President Trump should be tried, found guilty and executed.

One of the more amusing things said aboutscumbag/commie-Brennan’s losing his security clearance is that it was done to silence him. This is a guy who immediately got to defend himself with a self-serving editorial in the New York Times and appearances on every anti-Trump cable news show on television.

I wish someone would silence me that way.

⦿  Speaking of questions, I have a few I rarely if ever hear being asked of left-wingers, even when they dare wander off the reservation and show up on Fox News.

Why are people still having abortions all these years after the invention of the Pill, sex education in schools and other readily-available birth control devices? Wouldn’t it be cheaper and more humane in the long run if Planned Parenthood provided sterilization procedures instead of abortions?

Why is it that Socialism invariably turns into totalitarianism and how is it that Socialists never seem to recognize that fact?

Why is it that no matter which Party is in power, political scofflaws are so rarely indicted for their crimes?

Why are dummycrats-Democrats always attacking the super-rich when nearly all of the super-rich aredummycrats-Democrats?

Why, if strict gun control laws are the solution to gun violence, is there so much gun violence in the places with the strictest gun control laws?

If Russian meddling in our elections is as big a deal as thedummycrats-Democrats claim, why is it that President scumbag/liar-nObama did nothing about it? Why is it that, instead, he promised to be increasingly flexible where Russia was concerned after the 2012 election? And why is it that his national defense team, which consisted of such super patriots as scumbag-James Clapper,scumbag/commie-John Brennan, Michael Hayden,scumbag-James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Susan Rice, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr and Loretta Lynch, didn’t send up a flare?

How is it that dummycrats-Democrats are able to claim with a straight face that illegal aliens are more law-abiding and harder workers than the rest of us when they all broke the law when they snuck across the border and half of them are dependent on our tax dollars to survive?

Why are anchor babies the only people in America, at least aside from politicians, who are allowed to profit from the commission of a crime?

I happen to know the answers, not because I’m so smart, but because the answers are so obvious that even Nancy Pulosi could come up with them if you put her on the rack or told her that not only are plastic straws outlawed, but, unless she comes clean, so is plastic surgery.

⦿  Even though the leaders of the dummycrats-Democratic Party are nearly as old as I am, they will be relieved to know that their eventual replacements are already on the scene, and I’m not merely referring to commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In Baltimore, an 11-year-old 6th grader, Mariana Taylor, is already showing signs that she’s ready to accept the baton from Pulosi and run with it.

During the Pledge of Allegiance, she remained seated. She admits she got her inspiration from Colin Kaepernick, stating: “He stood up for what he believed in even though he could get fired.”

You can see why I believe she is more than ready to take a leadership role in the dummycrats-Democratic Party. Clearly, if Kaepernick had stood up, we wouldn’t be stuck with all these moronic copycats in the NFL and our 6th grade classrooms.

⦿  Although we are all aware of the fact that California elects the goofiest politicians in America, closely followed by New York and Illinois, you ignore Minnesota at your own risk.

I suspect that, like me, you assumed that once creepy Al Franken was forced to resign from the Senate, Minnesota would go back to just being famous for having artificial body parts and accessories among its major exports.

But when it comes to political oddities, Minnesota doesn’t have to take a backseat to anyone. In the recent primary election to select an Attorney General, a majority of its citizens decided that not even reports of having repeatedly committed domestic violence was enough to prevent them from selecting scumbag-Keith Ellison to be the state’s primary law enforcement official.

But they weren’t through. In a special election to replace Rep. scumbag-Ellison, a Muslim, in Congress, thedummycrats-Democrats selected another Muslim named Ilhan Omar to represent the district.

Ms. Omar, an immigrant from Somalia, was apparently never married to the man who sired her children, but either is or was married to her brother.

Point, set and match, to Minnesota.

⦿  But not even Minnesota has a monopoly on political oddities. In Georgia, a former congressional candidate in the 10th district, Kellie Collins, a zealot when it comes to gun control laws, shot and killed her former campaign treasurer, Curtis Cain.

Clearly, a classic case of do as I say, not as I do.

⦿  Some people have asked why it is I write so often. It’s because people in and around politics keep saying and doing so much really dumb shit.

For instance, in an effort to stop having to jail people of color so often, Congress is looking to reduce jail time for those engaged in drug trafficking. If that doesn’t achieve the desired results, they will simply pass a law making drug trafficking legal.

It wouldn't be unprecedented. After all, that is how they've seen fit to tackle the problem of illegal immigration.

Brennan has no say! SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN JONNY BOY---THE LIAR!

ON Another NOTE: Facebooks #WaklAway is big in the news-----PAY ATTENTION TO THIS-- DEMOCRATS ARE REALIZING WHAT A FARCE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY REALLY IS!

Nearly every of the 176,000 +/- #WalkAway has a unique reason for leaving the Democratic Party. Some of the most common reasons I’ve encountered are:

  • The Democrat Party rejects Christian values.
  • Liberal rhetoric on helping the poor does not match up with reality. For instance, Democrat-run Los Angeles now has 55,000 homeless people living on the streets.
  • The left frequently denounces the armed services, law enforcement, and the American flag. Many military veterans are outraged by this and SANCTUARY STATE IN CALIFORNIA---What the!
  • RELEASING CRIMINALS FROM PRISON LIKE A LEAKY FAUSET----CRIME WILL PREVAIL. I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA AND CANT FIND A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE ANYMORE!

 BRENNAN LOOSES HIS Security Clrarance and Will pay the price AS SHOULD ABOUT 100 OTHER higher up PEOPLE.

Lying Kamila Harris, Resorts to lying to try and get Kavinaugh to say he sopke to trump about Mueller Cory Booker is likewise a scum bag to pull what he did and should be removed from the Senate. Those 2 are what what Hillary called DEPLORABLES. It takes A deplorable person to lie in that way!

Now on to the DEEP STATE and what they would resort to,.....to get Trump out of office and that they would stoop to even ASSASSINATION to remove him. The leader of this resist movement is....BHO I believe everyone knows that. IF TRUMP IS REMOVED IN THAT WAY I BELIEVE BHO WILL BE REMOVED IN THE SAME WAY---AS THE DEEP STATE CREW LEADER. That will mark the start of a new civil war. A war for the Constitution Of The United States of America AGAINST SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM FROM THE DEMOCRATS AND THE DEEPSTATE.

The DEMOCRATS- DEEP STATE-------WILL NOT WIN!"

that is so true...the dummycrats-dems and their protesters are big losers.

So much for the truth can't argue on what you mention, your right on Stephen

Obama resting up for an afternoon round of Golf...If thats what you can call what he does on a golfcourse!

Obama looks like he took GOLF LESSONS from Charles Barkley. He should never have had a news camera man expose his swing to the public on TV.  It looks like LaMont Sanfords, Aunt Ester, First thing in the morning on a BAD DAY!

Security Clearances are issued on a 'NEED TO KNOW BASIS'... if one doesn't have a need to know no security clearance is to be issued.  Former members of the Government and those who leave a position in the government and no longer require access to classified material ... have their security clearance removed. 

Former member of the government who need access to classified material and are legitimately authorized such access, may have their security clearances reinstated... often,  such reinstated access is limited to specific classified material and restricted to a specific assignment.  It has always been the policy to limit the numbers and types of security clearances to the smallest group possible, making it much easier to spot breaches in security and to manage the system of classified materials and documents.

Upon exiting government, or a position within the government requiring a security clearance... the clearance is routinely removed and the individual with that clearance is debriefed concerning their responsibility for non-disclosure of classified material in any form... books, interviews, leaks, etc.  Individuals such as John Brennan are well aware of the regulations regarding the removal of security clearances and the abuses of past Administrations... which allowed former officials of the government to retain ACCESS and SECURITY CLEARANCES... unlawfully.

Any policy which permits former members of the administration 'carte blanch' access to classified material... is just more evidence of corruption in our government.  The Deep State and hidden government feed on such ill-advised and corrupt policies.  Such policies foment an environment conducive to espionage and sedition.

Stephen

Its very clear that scumbag/commie-brennan is lying and is cover-up his miss deeds of the pass and present. He needs to shut up as you put it.

The #WalkAway is doing a great thing and I honor that move.

I loudly applaud those in the #WalkAway movement congradulations----you see what is wrong in America lets fix it!

Its telling that such a movement NOW is exposing what has been the true norm with the LYING BUNCH AT THE Demo party ever since Jimmy Carter, then raised up to new heights under COMRADE BILL & HILLARY and taken to the shaking of hands with Treason & Sedition under CRIMINAL COMRADE Obama's DEEPSTATE. It tells you What the mentality is of the Liberal minds in America AND WHAT THEY ARE AND HAVE BEEN UP TO.

SO.....what will it take to P U T---Obama, Hillary, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi, John Brennan, James Clapper COMEY, ROSENSTEIN, ANDREW McCABE ANTIFA etel of the DEEP STATE, "IN PRISON", AFTER TRIAL FOR SEDITION & possibly TREASON AGAINST A SITTING PRESIDENT AND OUR GREAT COUNTRY????

THUMB TWITTLING TIME IS OVER!!!!

It will take the following to drain the swamp... an aggressive President, a fully supportive Attorney General, a committed Director of the FBI, and the cooperation of our major intel services to drain the swamp...  Today all we have is a committed President... and he appears weak on holding the swamp accountable. 

Draining the Swamp should be the NUMBER ONE PRIORITY of the President... it is the lynchpin upon which the restoration of our Constitutional Republic swings. All of the other efforts, of our President, are temporary, if he fails to 'DRAIN THE SWAMP' his legacy will be removed. 

The Swamp, if left intact, will reinstate their programs and finish their fundamental transformation of America... they must be removed permanently.  Draining the Swamp is not optional nor can it be ignored or set aside, to be dealt with later. It is imperative that the President act decisively and swiftly to drain the swamp before his enemies use their access to government resources and power to remove him from office... BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

He is losing valuable time and he needs to double up and make things happen.

Exactly Jea9... Trump values a sense of urgency ... let him act on that principal now by beginning the task to Drain the Swamp in earnest.

In fact, the President should have had a day of 'Shock and Awe' planned for his inauguration ceremony... he should have announced the arrest and pending indictment of the main players in the communist/democrat party immediately after being sworn in: The Clinton's, Obama and the heads of the FBI, DOJ and Intelligence apparatus should be serving time right NOW ... not latter. 

Pres. Trump missed a great opportunity to formally declare war on the Swamp... and he is now behind the proverbial 'Eight Ball'.  If he doesn't act quickly the Swamp will eat him alive... one doesn't play ball with alligators ... especially, in their home waters... the swamp.

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
