Our intelligence agencies serve at the pleasure of the President; they are not his boss!

Despite the hysteria, principled conservatives are pushing back against the deep state media’s demand for a Presidential loyalty oath to the intelligence agencies embedded in the U.S. government.

And embedded in the media, apparently, with their top secret clearances not revoked!

To say our intelligence agencies must always be believed is to say that elections don’t matter because the President is not allowed to make up his own mind. The media is trying to make us believe that John Brennan is more trustworthy than Donald Trump.

Willis Krumholz reports, “At Helsinki, Trump Undermined Our Power-Abusing Intelligence Agencies, Not America.”

Just about the only politician who had nice things to say about the Trump-Putin summit was Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who pointed out that there was little benefit for Trump to confront Putin during a press conference, and added that the intelligence agencies are not sacrosanct. The day after the Helsinki summit, under extreme pressure in the Beltway, Trump came out and unconvincingly walked his statements back.

[…]

After all the selective leaking to frame the Trump administration for obstruction, after a U.S. presidential campaign was spied on by the opposing Party’s administration, after years of botched or politicized intelligence assessments, after years of arming bad guys around the world, and after multiple revelations of spying on Journalists, Congress, and American citizens — of course it is appropriate to doubt the U.S. intelligence agencies.

Yes, Russia meddled in our election. But the degree to which Russia interfered — and favored Trump — matters. This affects the Mueller investigation, the amount of power we give the intelligence community to combat this interference, and U.S. foreign policy with the world’s other preeminent nuclear power. And the degree to which Russia interfered is still open for debate.

We can be certain about a few things. First, there was the hugely overblown and even pathetic social media campaign run by a Russian troll-farm. This campaign mostly appeared in non-swing-states, and the majority of its spending occurred after the election. In fact, only $46,000 was spent before Election Day, which should be compared to the Trump and Clinton campaigns’ combined $81 million spent on Facebook ads.

Russia also meddled by launching a massive spear-phishing campaign — in which a hacker sends a fake email that tries to trick people into giving out their log-in information — that surely targeted the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton-campaign. But this “hacking” campaign also targeted Republicans, a fact special counsel Robert Mueller didn’t include in his indictment of 12 Russians that occurred days before the Trump-Putin summit.

Hundreds of Woke Corporations Sign Letter Opposing Election Reform Laws

Hundreds of anti-American, woke corporations have signed onto a letter opposing the election reform laws

Hundreds of anti-American, woke corporations have signed onto a letter opposing the election reform laws being crafted and passed in red states. Big companies including Amazon, BlackRock, Google, and Warren Buffett claim to be standing against “discriminatory legislation” that makes it “harder for people to vote.” This, of course, is a flat out lie pushed by extreme leftists. Not one red state is looking to make it harder for anyone to vote. According to the New York Times, “It was the biggest show of solidarity so far by the business community as companies around the country try to navigate the partisan uproar over Republican efforts to enact new election rules.” The Times added: The statement was organized in recent days by Kenneth Chenault, a former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck. A copy appeared on Wednesday in advertisements in The New York Times and The Washington Post. Last month, with only a few big companies voicing opposition to a restrictive new voting law in Georgia, Mr. Chenault and Mr. Frazier led a group of Black executives in calling on companies to get more involved in opposing similar legislation around the country. This is just another example of these anti-American, left-wing corporations working to make an end-run around the U.S. Constitution to force a hardcore, leftist philosophy onto this country. https://twitter.com/dgelles/status/1382293992705028100 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

POLL: Most Americans Still Believe Democrats and Biden Cheated in 2020 Election

A new poll finds that the majority of Americans still think that Joe Biden did not legally win the 2020 election

2020 election

A new poll finds that the majority of Americans still think that Joe Biden did not legally win the 2020 election despite the crack down by Big Tech and the drumbeat from the left-wing media trying to force Americans into believing that Biden won. A new Rasmussen poll finds that most Americans still believe that fraud played a big part in Joe Biden’s “win” last year. Per Rasmussen: Most voters say it’s more important to prevent cheating in elections than to make it easier to vote and, by more than a two-to-one margin, they reject claims that voter ID laws are discriminatory. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S. Voters say laws requiring photo identification at the polls discriminate against some voters. Sixty-two percent (62%) say voter ID laws don’t discriminate. The pill adds: “A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election.” And… Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans believe it is likely last year’s presidential election was affected by cheating, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party. The poll was taken of 1,000 respondents on April 11 and 12. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
