When it comes to meddling in national elections, the CIA puts the Russians to shame.
The continuing, full scale assault on Donald Trump and his reputation by our so-called Intelligence Community (with the CIA apparently leading the charge) is disgusting, despicable and dangerous. It also exposes John McCain as a low life snake doing all he can to stir the pot and discredit Donald Trump. Why?
The answer is very simple–Donald Trump is promising a new foreign policy that will shift NATO’s focus from a confrontation with Russia to the destruction of radical Islam and will end the covert program to arm, equip and train radical Islamists in Syria and leave Bashar Al Assad in charge. Trump is no longer committed to a policy of “building democracies” overseas, which for the neocon segment of the US foreign policy community, is a disaster.
I do not know how many of you have ever watched the movie, The Good Shepherd, which tells a Hollywood version of former CIA officer James Jesus Angleton. One key part of the movie shows CIA officers painstakingly analyzing film, frame-by-frame, to determine where it was made and who is in it. Here’s a news flash–that CIA does not exist. If the CIA was acting as a truly professional intelligence organization, its leaders would have done a genuine analysis of that fraudulent doc
CNN and some others in the media went nuts last night over a leak from someone in the intel community pushing a fake news story that Russia has a bunch of dirt on Trump and is blackmailing him:
Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.
IN JANUARY, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his Farewell Address after serving two terms as U.S. President; the five-star General chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decade-long escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.
This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already-widely-disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”
Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing – eager – to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.
As many of you know I have written critically about Donald Trump in the past. But this is not about Donald Trump’s reputation, this is a full fledged assault by the some leaders of our intelligence organizations on the legitimately elected man who will become the President of the United States. The CIA may need to be dismantled. This is that serious. No U.S. intelligence organization has any right, legal or otherwise, to interfere in domestic politics. That is a bright red line that must not be crossed.
Finally, it is sad to see the mess that CNN has become. My very first TV appearance after leaving government was on CNN. I discussed the capture of Carlos the Jackal (this was 23 years ago). CNN is now a network that is discredited and in free fall. It is a real tragedy.
