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.

Buttigieg Says Supply Chain Disaster Ends When Everyone is Vaccinated

How do you figure, Pete?!

Published

on

And just like that, the federal government made it sound like it was holding the economy hostage until we all get vaccinated.

The Biden administration is in a worrisome place in the late months of 2021, as a number of compounding crises continue to mount, and without any true direction coming from the White House.

The latest issue to rear its ugly head has comes to us in the form of massive, continued disruptions to the supply chain.

In a recent appearance on CNN, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg suggested that this latest catastrophe, which threatens to rise price of goods across the board in the United States and effect our ability to shop during the holidays, would end only after “everyone” is vaccinated.

Buttigieg said, “Well, look, there are going to be disruptions and shocks to the system as long as the pandemic continues. But we know some of the steps that we’re taking are going to make a difference. Remember, there are three factors here: It’s about supply, it’s about demand, and it’s about the pandemic. And those three factors are interacting.”

And then…

[…] “Look, the bottom line is that everything we’re experiencing right now, from issues impacting the supply chain, to issues impacting the ability to travel right now, they’re all driven by a pandemic that we need to put behind us. The pandemic ends when we get everybody vaccinated. It is our best tool to get that done, and it’s one of the reasons why these vaccine requirements are so important and they work.”

Buttigieg has been recently criticized after remaining on paternity leave as the supply chain crisis exploded.  This latest statement, in which he appears to blame the unvaccinated for the supply chain worries, is going to give critics a whole lot more to work with.
