It Is ‘America First’ and NOT Intelligence Agencies First!

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.

Mad Max Throws Predictable Tantrum Over RussiaGate Nothing Burger

Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments.

Maxine Waters

For nearly two years the nation has waited, and, during that wait, we have been fairly nasty to one another. You see, the democrats decided to go all in on a conspiracy theory first mentioned by failed 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton in which Donald Trump was some sort of “Russia asset”, sent to the White House on orders of Vladimir Putin. We know the rest of the long story:  Robert Mueller spend the next 22 months looking far and wide for proof of this collusion and came up essentially empty.  (And that was after investigating a number of bizarre, out-of-the-Russian-realm leads as well). To say that Mueller was thorough would be a gross understatement. Now, with the democrats overtly disappointed in the summary statement produced by the Attorney General regarding the Mueller Report, they’ve again begun to radicalize en masse. Not one to miss an opportunity for outrageous indignation and the airtime that comes along with it, Maxine Waters has begun to disseminate her own views on the developments…and they are predictably batty.  “This is not the end of anything!” Waters told MSNBC’s Joy Reid as they realized the report was a giant nothing burger for Democrats. “This is the— well, it’s the end of the report and the investigation by Mueller. But those of us who chair these committees have a responsibility to continue with our oversight,” Waters said. “There’s so much that, uh, needs to be, you know, taken a look at at this point,” she claimed,” and so it’s not the end of everything.” Waters joins fellow democratic Congressperson Adam Schiff in continuing to assert that there is still evidence of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia, despite Robert Mueller specifically stating that this was not the case after 22 months of investigation.

Kellyanne Conway Has A BOLD Suggestion for Adam Schiff

If Conway’s reaction is any indication of the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, there is a certain reckoning coming for the democrats.

Kellyanne Conway

We understood fully well that there would be an intense amount of reverberation once Robert Mueller’s report landed in the DC Swamp, but some in The Beltway are going nuclear. This first iteration of the Mueller summary, a 4-page letter by Attorney General Bill Barr, was not enough for the democrats, (predictably), and a number of high ranking members of Congress have already begun flailing and thrashing in tantrums that are almost comical in their severity. One of the head “collusion” cheerleaders, Congressman Adam Schiff, has been inordinately aggressive in this pursuit of ousting President Trump, and his bombastic behavior is getting the stink-eye from Kellyanne Conway. Conway lashed out on “Fox & Friends” at Democrats and media personalities who suggested over the course of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election that the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia, but she went particularly hard after Schiff. “Adam Schiff should resign,” she said. “He has no right as somebody who has been peddling a lie day after day after day unchallenged. Unchallenged and not under oath. Somebody should have put him under oath and said you have evidence, where is it?” The longtime adviser to the President continued… Conway cited past comments from Schiff in which he said there was plenty of evidence of collusion. The California Democrat has said for months that there is evidence of collusion in “plain sight.” “He ought to resign today,” Conway said. “He’s been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years, promising Americans that this president would either be impeached or indicted.” Schiff has been prominent in the Russiagate conspiracy circles, often appearing on television to tout the radical left’s anti-Trump narrative. If Conway’s reaction is any indication of the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, there is a certain reckoning…
