Clapper Tosses Brennan Under the Bus?

John Brennan is becoming such an embarrassment to the left that even Barack Obama’s one-time intelligence chief, James Clapper, is saying that Brennan’s big mouth is becoming a problem.

Brennan has been caught in lie after lie and this past weekend he was seen trying to pretend he didn’t say that Trump has committed treason after he said Trump committed treason.

According to The Hill Clapper seems to wish Brennan would just shut the heck up:

“John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” Clapper said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “John is subtle like a freight train and he’s gonna say what’s on his mind.”

Clapper’s comments came in response to an op-ed penned by Brennan in The New York Times this week, in which he wrote that President Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

Clapper said he empathized with Brennan, but voiced concerns for Brennan’s fiery rhetoric toward Trump and his administration.

“I think that the common denominator among all of us [in the intelligence community] that have been speaking up … is genuine concern about the jeopardy and threats to our institutions,” Clapper said.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) also slammed Brennan for his lies:

“If his statement is based on intelligence he has seen since leaving office, it constitutes an intelligence breach. If he has some other personal knowledge of or evidence of collusion, it should be disclosed to the special counsel, not The New York Times,” Burr said.

Burr added that Trump has the “full authority” to rescind security clearance if the statements were “purely political and based on conjecture.”

Of course, the latest squealing from Brennan arose after President Trump legally cancelled the former CIA chief’s security clearance. Because of Trump’s action, Breannan can now no longer legally obtain briefings about high priority government information.

Brennan has idiotically claimed that losing his security clearance is a way Trump is trampling his free speech.

This is a flat out lie, though. Brennan seems to feel that his security clearance is somehow a “right” like the First Amendment. But this is incorrect. A security clearance is a government conferred privilege, not any sort of right.

But, all you have to do is follow the money to realize why Brennan is screeching like a stuck pig over this whole thing. You see, losing his security clearance will hurt his finances when companies and groups won’t hire him for his services because he no longer has access to government secrets.

His wallet is the ONLY reason he’s mad for losing his clearance. It has nothing to do with free speech.

Ocasio-Cortez Not Happy Trump Called Her AOC During Debate; Says It’s Sexist

Published

on

During the last presidential debate held on Thursday night, President Donald Trump referred to everyone’s least favorite Democratic Socialist, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, by her initials, “AOC,” which pretty much everyone calls her by. However, it appears this did not settle well with her. In fact, she considered it to be sexist and demands that the president call her “congresswoman.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot,” she tweeted. “AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC. Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101,” she continued. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319497076842110976 https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1319499191551447041 The responses to AOC’s tweet were varied, with a lot of conservatives pointing out that there’s a big difference between nicknames and the use of a person’s initials. Many went on to note that President Trump often refers to men with more personal names, for example, referring to Joe Biden as simply, “Joe.” And, as you might expect, progressives eager to be white knights showed up to defend her from the big, bad orange man. “AOC is not a nickname, they’re your initials. JFK is also not a nickname. The FBI, again, is not a nickname. You can maybe say that Trump should’ve still used your official title, but Obama was also referenced sans title, and you don’t see him whining about it on Twitter…” said Lauren Chen in a tweet. “As a fellow…

Biden Says He Never Called For End To Fracking During Debate, But He Did Back In 2019

Published

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden went head-to-head in Thursday night’s final presidential debate on the topic of energy police and how their plans for reform might impact American workers. During the debate, held in Nashville, Tennessee, the president accused Biden of going all in on a radical leftist environmental agenda that would completely ban fracking and obliterate the oil industry. Via Fox News: During their debate in Nashville, Tenn., Trump accused Biden of embracing a radical environmental agenda that would ban fracking and destroy the oil industry. “He was against fracking,” Trump said. “He said it … until he got the nomination, went to Pennsylvania, then he said — but you know what Pennsylvania, he’ll be against it very soon because his party is totally against it.” “Fracking on federal land, I said, no fracking and/or oil on federal land,” Biden shot back. The problem here is that fracking provides hundreds of thousands of jobs in this country. To seek to ban it and get rid of it would put all of these fine people out of work and do massive damage to the economy. Way back in 2019, Biden was asked during a Democratic primary debate if there would be “any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?” “No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel,” the former vice president replied. During the debate on Thursday, the president pressed hard on Biden to answer if he would shut down the oil industry. “I would transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden said. Biden has also come out in favor of the Green New Deal. This piece of socialistic garbage…
