Senator Rand Paul Discusses Unhinged Responses From Former CIA Director John Brennan…

Senator Rand Paul discusses the continued interests, and responses, of former intelligence officials from the Obama administration:

Spidey Sense: Senator Rand Paul is well positioned to enter the Trump cabinet after the 2018 mid-terms. It would not be unreasonable to predict, based on the outcome of the November election, that President Trump will reset the executive branch intelligence community and remove officials who are not purging the careerists facilitating the ongoing efforts of the entrenched deep state apparatus.

    Except if they are Deep-Staters, DJT had to know, so why did he HIRE them in the first place?

    IF it turns out that Chris Wray (only his blue-blood pals from Yale, with their Thurston Howell the 3rd accents call him “Christopher”) is NOT a 9-D chess player, and he’s just another S.E.S. member covering up for the crimes of the FIB and aiding the FIB’s efforts to take down the presidency, then Chrissy Wray doesn’t just get removed…

    He wins a ticket to Gitmo in the back of a C130 with a bunch of other Ivy League traitors.

    Same goes for Sessions, if instead of playing underwater 12-D chess, he has been playing pocket-pool the whole time.

      My question, like yours, how did these deep state SOB’s get appointed? We are not talking about insignificant, do nothing, make work low level agencies. We are talking about the DOJ/FBI and these two corrupt institutions have been at the center of Trump’s problems. Some one(s) in the WH is a snake.

      • They got appointed because it was calculated that they would advance the conspiracy… that is they would COMMIT OVERT ACTS IN FURTHERANCE OF THE CONSPIRACY… thus they will not be able to claim ignorance nor will they have plausible deniability. They will have committed MULTIPLE OVERT ACTS which tie them to the initial conspiracy and there will be NO WAY TO TALK OUT OF IT.

        I don’t discount the notion that Trump has some snakes in his midst, but I have a different take on Sessions and Wray. Much of it has to do with Trump initially being weak, and the Swamp Rats in Congress wanting control.

        I believe many of Trumps initial appointments were suggested by advisers as good people. I also think there was a lot of concern over who would be confirmed by Congress, and that Trump…with the Muh Russia! thing hanging over his head and little support in Congress had to go with people that could be confirmed. Trump did not have the political support to fight with his own party in Congress to get who he wanted confirmed.

        David Shulkin being kept at VA is one example. Certain Swamp Rats in DC wanted Shulkin there to continue loading the gravy train for certain politically connected contractors. After Shulkin was thrown out and Trump nominated the Navy Doctor who withdrew, the Swamp Rats smeared the Navy Doctor to keep the gravy train going.

        With so much evidence coming out that Muh Russia! is a scam, Trump has gained a bit more support in Congress, and will likely get better choices that he wants rather than what the Swamp will allow.

      Rand Paul can be unpredictable and he can test a person’s patience at times, but he hits it off with the President. He would be a great choice for a Cabinet Secretary. He’s not a ‘yes’ man, he thinks for himself and our President likes people that are also critical thinkers. He wants contrarian points of view so he can thrash things out and come up with a well vetted plan. Rand fits that ability to a ‘t’.

He could have easily wallowed in his butthurt like some (most?) of the others and tried to further poison the well in the Senate but he is a true patriot who puts love of country above petty differences. That demonstrates a level of character and humility that most elected officials, particularly those elected to high offices, are not capable of reaching. I don’t always agree with him or his positions but, as politicians go, he is one of the good ones.

      Concerned, this and more was know and reported back last August, 2017.

      Forensic review of DNC 7zip data files and subsequent transferring to working directories 2 months later, tells us the transfer was local.

      Guccifer 2.0 NGP/VAN Metadata Analysis
      This study analyzes the file metadata found in a 7zip archive file, 7dc58-ngp-van.7z, attributed to the Guccifer 2.0 persona. For an in depth analysis of various aspects of the controversy surrounding Guccifer 2.0, refer to Adam Carter’s blog, Guccifer 2.0: Game Over.

      Based on the analysis that is detailed below, the following key findings are presented:

      On 7/5/2016 at approximately 6:45 PM Eastern time, someone copied the data that eventually appears on the “NGP VAN” 7zip file (the subject of this analysis). This 7zip file was published by a persona named Guccifer 2, two months later on September 13, 2016.
      Due to the estimated speed of transfer (23 MB/s) calculated in this study, it is unlikely that this initial data transfer could have been done remotely over the Internet. [Note: Later posted : Peak (38 MB/s) Transfer Speed]
      The initial copying activity was likely done from a computer system that had direct access to the data. By “direct access” we mean that the individual who was collecting the data either had physical access to the computer where the data was stored, or the data was copied over a local high speed network (LAN).

      On September 1, 2016, two months after copying the initial large collection of (alleged) DNC related content (the so-called NGP/VAN data), a subset was transferred to working directories on a system running Windows. The .rar files included in the final 7zip file were built from those working directories.

  3. This IS a good question. I have wondered from the start about how Trump would expose the DEEP DEEP state who are decades buried. In order to get them vulnerable to exposure I thought that he would need to address those more recent villains (and given what time frame I think of as having been there at the start of DEEP DEEP state, even the Clintons are relatively new villains) in order to give the DEEP villains a false security that they were safely embedded.

    The “Russia” enigma is as old as the revolution when Russia exchanged dictatorial tsars for dictatorial control by “other-than-tsars.”

    We can not be “friends” or even “allies” with Russia. The “Russians” are an ethic group among Tartars, Turks, Muslims, and beaucoup tribes. Russia is a geo-political amalgamation of cultures which are not trying in any way to assimilate and become “Russian.” They don’t have any sense of “manifest destiny” or any goal of a united nationality. Russia has always been under the chaos of who rules and by what means. Russia has long had a messianic drive for empire, but no sense of a need for individualism. Their general nature is paranoia. Paranoia is the inability to distinguish the random from the intentional. Therefore, Russians calculate their moves carefully, but skeptically.

    Putin scoffed at “trust” in Helsinki. Paranoia does not trust. That is childish and opens you to being vulnerable. Trump scoffed a “friends” in Helsinki. Trump is not looking for friends among people who place no value in being trusted. Trump takes Putin and the Russians for who they are and have always been: competitors. Trump made that distinction directly at Helsinki.

    The US has but one choice. It has to be the most powerful force on Earth. Not because we are empire oriented, but because we recognize that others are. The Bush era war in Iraq and Afghanistan kept us focused on fighting with outdated technology against goons with really outdated technology. We blew at least $5Trillion on backwater warfare and that was $5Trillion not spent on military technological improvement. Now Russia has S-400 air defense systems which our F-22’s avoid at all costs and Russia is about to roll out its S-500 air defense systems. We are playing catch-up and that is serious stuff for NATO, the mid-East and the China Sea.

    Russia is unstable. Putin will hold onto control as long as he can, but what then? Meanwhile, Trump is playing chess with Russia, North Korea, China, NATO and the mid-East. He is not just moving pawns, he is establishing strategic cooperation. Not “lasting” alliances; cooperation. The whole “democratization” of other places schtick is not a part of Trump’s game.

    The vicious dictators in the reality of the world understand Trump. They need to fear and respect him. Most do. Meanwhile, the emotion driven DemonizingRats hate Trump with so much venomous frothing at the mouth that they would rather flush the United States down the toilet than to even think about geo-political realities. (Trump is also right about the “sh*t holes” of the world. We can’t fix them and we don’t have an endless row of tits on our sow to suckle them.)

    Shary Attkisson tweeted: “What would an intel official who speaks like this be willing to do using his official office and intel tools… to protect the nation from what he views as this sort of threat? (Reminder: Brennan was CIA Director during election and after Trump was elected, during transition.)”

    Brilliant question. Any idea that the intel community is made up of patriotic angels is hogwash. What Brennan tweeted was a straight on exposure of his malevolent self. We too often forget what mere mortals these gods of high order “integrity” really are. Trump is very clear headed about them.

      ___________________

      There is a way to fix them. It wouldn’t cost a lot of money, throwing money at problems only enriches the brokers and facilitators. Money never actually gets to the people it is supposed to help, and even if it did, the people it is supposed to help usually don’t have any experience managing large sums of money, with predictable results.

      It would require:

      A) convictions

      and

      B) courage of those convictions

      By which I mean one thing only.

      NOT trying to spread the pirate ideology of ‘democracy’ around the world (at the very least, we should be teaching how to have a Constitutional Republic, not ‘democracy’).

      No country can truly flourish without the blessings of God.

      If you want to help third world crap holes — or even nations like Canada, England, Australia or (gasp!) ourselves, start teaching Christianity.

      That’s how it all started.

      The Renaissance. The enlightenment. Everything ‘good’ about Western Civilization is ultimately rooted in Christianity.

      Not the voodoo of the Caribbean. Not islam which has done nothing but defile the world’s largest sand box. Not Hinduism of India, or any other.

      Christianity.

      Spread Christianity, not according to the doctrines of men, but according to what the Scriptures actually SAY. Plant that seed, and any dung heap of despair and corruption can become a fruitful garden of plenty.

      But you will have to have the courage to confront and then shame the purveyors of ‘political correctness’. They are loud, but they are weak. Full of rage, but without any core. Ignore them, steam-roll over them, dismiss them, defeat them, whatever.

      If you really want to help the downtrodden, don’t teach them to be pirates (i.e., ‘democracy’).

          In a nation FOUNDED by Christians, and inhabited by a large majority of self-described Christians, who therefore pay a large majority of the taxes that RUN our country, it would be nice if the government afforded the SAME Constitutional safeguards and protections to CHRISTIANS as they do to all of the professional grievance mongers and malcontents.

              Then look at it from strictly a competitive standpoint.

              Someone is going to win those hearts and minds. If they are not won for Christ, they will be won to something… for all intents and purposes, something diametrically opposite to Christ.

              And nobody sane wants that.

              We have to compete in the marketplace of ideas. The gospel of Christ is the best offer there is or ever has been, but to a large extent, we don’t even compete, because of the Left’s imaginary ‘wall of separation’ between church and state. There certainly IS a separation, the Lord’s church has nothing to do with the State, but the Left has construed that to mean that Christianity should be REMOVED and EXCLUDED from the public sphere, which is a gross perversion.

              And you can tell it is a gross perversion because those same Christ-haters will promote islam and Satansim and every other pagan belief under the sun, in the public sphere and with government sanction, even teaching our children islamic prayers in school — while Christianity is to be exterminated.

              It is the same everywhere, certainly including when military members are abroad. Instead of making sure no member of the armed services is ever caught having a BIBLE among his personal belongings or on his DESK (gasp!), we should be promoting Christianity, hand in hand with promoting freedom, everywhere we go. I’m not talking about nation building, or even actively ‘proselytizing’ anyone, but we could do a whole lot worse than handing out Bibles to those who want them and allowing people to talk openly about their Christian faith and belief.

              What do we have to lose?

              We’re not even competing, we’re not even in the GAME, and every day that remains so, the enemy grows emboldened and grows in numbers.

              Teaching the ‘savages’ about Christ is no different (or less necessary) today than it was in the 1st century, because Man is no different today than in the first century. The nature and character of Man hasn’t changed since Adam.

              Thanks to the effective efforts of the atheist Left, Christians are practically forced to hide their light under a bushel. As a result, islam (and other belief systems, to a lesser extent) grows practically unopposed.

              islam is like the Borg. It can’t be reasoned with, it can’t be bargained with, and it won’t ever stop on it’s own, because it was designed to appeal to man’s basest and most carnal desires and instincts. islam is hideously effective in that regard.

              And we’re not even in the arena. Large swathes of humanity are barely exposed to the teachings of Christ, while they have islam rammed down their throat.

              We had better compete for those hearts and minds.

              We had better show people that there is another option, a better way than the way of atrocities and crimes against humanity that is ‘islam’.

                  But that doesn’t do much good if my head isn’t in the right place also 😉

                  .

                  “I’m not saying your proposition isn’t worthy, it is, it just isn’t practical or doable.”

                  ________________

                  There is a spiritual reason for doing it, and there is a practical or strategic reason for doing it. I am addressing the practical or strategic reason here.

                  By observation, it must be practical and doable, because the enemy is doing it. And the enemy is doing it very efficiently, and relentlessly, and we are offering nothing as a counterpoint.

                  Would you agree that doing ‘nothing’ in response to an aggressive adversary is almost never a good strategy?

                  If so, then doing something is necessary, at which point the discussion is about “what to do”.

                  It is not credibly disputable that islam is aggressively spreading around the world. It is a backward and evil ideology whose objective is our destruction. Literally.

                  It could not have the success (by force and compulsion) it is having without our modern technology. When communication and travel was by camel, and violence limited to the sword, the savages could be contained in their sandbox. Worldwide telecommunications, air travel and weapons of mass destruction have allowed the savages to ‘go global’.

                  There is an antidote to the evil of islam. It’s not ‘democracy’ or any do-gooder NGO, it’s not government sponsored ‘education’, or propaganda lies. It’s not building infrastructure or giving them condoms (thanks, Marxists), or any of a thousand other useless schemes designed either to fail or to make the doers feel good about themselves.

                  The answer and antidote to islam is a better belief system.

                  That belief system is Christianity.

                  I realize that rubs some people the wrong way, or some may be against promoting one specific belief system over another, but if you want to succeed, you can’t offer a smorgasbord of diluted lukewarm feel-good garbage, and you can’t offer lies.

                  And the simple fact is that if God and Christ are true, then all other belief systems are false, by definition.

                  The ‘world’ loves a thousand shades of gray, because that which is false can find comfort there. By contrast, Christianity is black and white — it is either true, or it’s not.

                  Christianity has been tested and critically scrutinized by the greatest minds of every era — almost always with the objective to prove it false. The New Testament can and has withstood such scrutiny for nearly two thousand years and counting, and the Old Testament for much longer.

                  Why is it that the other world ‘religions’ are never subjected to the same critical scrutiny?

                  Why are the other ‘great’ religions of the world placated or tolerated or promoted, while Christianity is specifically and pointedly singled out for attack?

                  Why has that been so, since the beginning?

                  What is it about Christianity that is different?

                  There must be a reason for it.

                  If it is false, if the opponents of Christianity believed it is false, then why don’t they simply ignore it? Christianity threatens harm to no one.

                  So why all the opposition?

                  More or less, I think it is because the ‘world’ knows that Christianity is true, and evil opposes truth everywhere, in every way.

                  The ‘world’ hates truth. That’s why ‘political correctness’ comes so easily. The ‘world’ loves a lie, but the world hates truth and always has.

                  Truth has many enemies, and few allies.

                  I would love for the books of islam to be subjected to the same type of critical scrutiny to which the Scriptures of the Bible have been subjected. But I won’t be holding my breath waiting for that to happen.

                  islam is demonstrably false.

                  The answer against that which is ‘false’ is truth. Truth is the best defense and the best offense.

                  The answer to islam is Christ.

                  It is exactly that simple.

                  We cannot defeat ideas or ideology with a gun (without total extermination).

                  But we can defeat them with truth.

                  islam is bringing the fight to us, whether we like it or not.

                  The only real question is how long do we wait, how much advantage and territory and strength and numbers do we allow islam to gather, before we respond.

                  And when we respond, how long will we wait, before we exhaust all other options, and confront islam with the only thing that will ever work — which is the Truth?

                  We could do it today. We could end the worldwide millennias-long scourge of islam in a few years or less, largely without military conflict.

                  Sadly, we won’t.

                  Not until we have to, not until all other options are exhausted, not until our very survival depends on it.

                  Look at history.

                  The last time the West waited that long to defend itself, islam almost won.

                  “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. [10] Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. [11] There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9-11, KJV)

                  islam doesn’t care a whole lot about borders. As for overseas, we likely had an islamic president for the previous 8 years, the Director of the CIA (Brennan) is reportedly an islamic convert, the Huma Abedin is islamic with family ties to the islamic brotherhood and would have been the right-hand ‘handler’ of Sick Hillary Clinton had she won.

                  Not to mention all of the islamic brotherhood members apparently seeded throughout our government by the Hussein.

                  So I don’t think that ‘keeping it overseas’ thing is working out too hot.

                  islam uses and exploits and subverts, and corrupt ‘democracies’ like ours (yes, I realize we’re supposed to be a Republic) are an easy target for islam.

    I’m open to Rand Paul moving into an executive branch role, but:

    1) I would want to know who would replace him in the Senate first and foremost, and

    Until I know these two things, I oppose the idea and want Paul right where he is.

    That all said, I think Sundance’s “spidey sense” is picking up false signals (although he doesn’t say why he think this is possible). For myself, I don’t see PDJT bringing Paul into the WH for any number of reasons I won’t take the time to list here.

    For those who are upset about Newt Gingrich’s remarks re: Trump in Helsinki, please understand that Newt is no longer a serious politician, or even a serious person. He writes fictional novels for a living now. His Fox News gig is merely to supplement his income. He seldom offers new insight into anything. Mostly he just repeats what other, more serious journalists and commentators on the right have already said. In fact, I would say his primary contribution in the past three years has been pointing out the overtly biased team that Mueller assembled. I believe he was among the first to do so, and kudos to him for that. But anyone who thinks he is still trying to play a serious role in anything should ask themselves, why is he not in Trump’s cabinet? There is a reason: He does not want to do any real work anymore.

        In a world of texts and soundbytes good fiction has as great an impact as the cartoons of yesteryear, the Looney Tunes and the Hanna Barbara days when children were entertained but adults were also let into a satirical view of things that both amused them and matured their perspective.

    I have a theory about what could have been said at the private meeting …

    First, it had to be common knowledge in the Intel world at large in 2015/2016 that someone was willing to pay good money for dirt on Trump … i.e. Putin would have heard about it …

    Second while the old days of Russia spying on everyone (communist mind control police) are behind us I would imagine that whoever sold nonsense to Steele would have reported the transaction to the FSB/KGB at some point just to be sure and be in the clear with the home country … thus Putin may have direct knowledge of the dossier sources and the veracity of the info sold (all BS but somebody still got paid 🙂 )

    Third and this is where it is a little weak (too much conjecture on my part) FSB/KGB operatives may have tried to or actually did sell info to the FBI directly … in other words Putin can name names on who in the FBI/CIA was actively trying to investigate Trump long before Muller was impaneled or the counter intel investigation formally began …

    As a gesture of good will I could imagine Putin offering up some of this info to Trump to show that while his guys where messing with the US there where US folks messing with Trump …

    A theory and maybe alittle too much tin foil in my hat 🙂

    About Sundance’s Predictions: Paul in charge of one of our Intelligence agencies would make sense to me and from what I have seen but an appointment that would work out well in favor of US citizens. That (and controlling spending/budget) are important issues to him and issues where he has common ground with the Trump admin and the Trump base (except for when he sticks to his positions rather than make any compromises at all which is sometimes necessary to get things done).

    His consistent strong stands that are at times unpopular speak well for him holding strong in high pressure jobs of the intelligence community, seemingly the swampiest of the swamp (or would that be the state dept?).
