    Retaining a Security Clearance is a PRIVILEGE… it should require annual renewal..

    … at which time each applicant has to pass a Polygraph test… and waterboarding.

      Abuse of ‘security clearance’ privileges is so systemic and rampant — entirely predictably, like the sun rising in the east and setting in the west — that what could possibly justify ANYONE retaining “security clearance” after leaving government?

      If any former government employee has a legitimate NEED for ‘security clearance’ in the private sector, he or she can re-apply for it.

      The background check would take much less time, since only their activity since leaving government would need to be researched and vetted.

      • The cost to a private employer to acquire a secret clearance for an employee can be in the thousands of dollars range. The background checks cost hundreds.

        Private employers don’t like paying to get an employee cleared, hence the requirement that a potential employee already has a clearance. This right there cuts out many qualified workers whose clearance was revoked when they left government service, like military veterans.

        It’s very telling that that the bureaucrats are desperate to hold onto their lucrative clearances for the sake of filthy lucre. They disgust me.

          Someone on Fox news said each security clearance like Brennans costs tax payers $25,000 dollars, I couldn’t believe it, but I remember hearing that the government would pay hundreds for a toilet seat, so I guess $25,000 is possible.😏

          Then the prospective EMPLOYEE should pay it.

          Any time I have needed to get ‘licensed’ or training for some job, I had to pay for the training and licensing up front, out of pocket. Nobody was paying my way.

          Below it says getting a Security Clearance costs $25K.

          If so, that’s argument #1 to take that job away from insanely wasteful government and use a private contractor to do security clearance checks. Yes, there are problems with incompetent / corrupt private companies too, but who is more incompetent than government?

          At least with private companies, people can actually be fired and sent to prison.

            Government already contracts these (background checks, etc.) out to private companies. Big $$ in getting these contracts, and no, a prospective employee should NOT have to pay for one. Imagine having to pay someone similar to a private detective for two years to investigate your entire background (family members, neighbors going back 10 years or more, foreign travel/contacts, financial history, criminal history, etc.) Only the rich would ever “qualify” for government work and clearances. NOT the solution….

      Absolutely right, it is a privilege, and renewed every 5 years. The poly is required for some TS clearances, mostly at the FBI…go figure….but waterboarding is reserved for SERE training for military members in high risk of capture fields with a TS. I would advocate for waterboarding of all clearances though whether initial or renewal, it’s like joining a frat, and everyone should share in the fun!

          By using DIRECT communication, and bypassing the Fake News, VSGPDJT is trying to re-familiarize We The People with our power. It only works with a responsive POTUS … AND a responsive populace.

          The WH website allows for civilian-generated petitions; and IIRC, when the verified e-signatures crack 100K, then POTUS has the political clout / cover to address the issue raised.

          We are SO not used to such a situation, where it is WE who get to decide the topic and what we think should be done. The ubiquity of e-comms has kicked down the barrier against direct interaction, and POTUS is teaching us – nay, EXHORTING us – to USE IT.

          How tough is it to go to the site and enter in an email (then verification)? How great would be the effect, if all of us (who pay attention and care) get in the habit of e-casting our “up-votes” whenever an important decision were to be petitioned for?

      This practice, going on for decades now, has created an entire ‘class’ of people who have ‘security clearance’ and access which the rest of us do not have.

      People rightly scoffed at Hussein giving access to more than 30 people to the President’s Daily Briefing (PDB).

      When 30 people have access, there are no ‘secrets’ any longer.

      But a million plus with security clearances?

        When a million people have a security clearance, it ceases to be a method to keep secrets, and becomes a passkey to a ruling class, where the “elite” are allowed in, given access to jobs and positions others can’t fill, and can stay in. Everyone else who doesn’t have clearance is denied access. This is the first level boundary line of George Carlin’s “Big Club.”

    I love that our great President stands up against the media who are so forking against him. I read this article tonight:
    https://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2018/08/20/flashback-media-didnt-care-when-obama-scrubbed-security-clearances/
    Not everyone who has had a security clearance keeps them. When I retired, my badge was taken away. With that action I lost access to the site and the building I worked in, my computer, my .gov email address, etc. As I drove away from the site that day I felt “you are no longer welcome here.” It was a strange day.
    Obviously, the “rules” vary as to whether it is appropriate for persons no longer employed by the government or military to keep their clearances.
    However, if I displayed the behavior of Mudd or Brennan and my clearance was under review, I would have lost my clearance and would have been out of a job. A senior in our organization lost their clearance for getting in a fight over a used car.
    Someone told me it takes the contractor’s hired by the Office of Personnel Management (who conduct the clearance investigations) something like $5k for each person to conduct the five year review to renew a clearance.. That’s probably a lowball figure.
    I felt that my Q clearance was a badge of honor. That I would not smoke dope; drink to excess; and agree to show up on 24 hours notice for testing in this regard. Even had to report when I had a boyfriend move in (who was also investigated ) and when I went out of the country on vacation. Sheesh.
    This whole thing with Brennan has given me pause to realize how HAPPY I am not to have to adhere anymore to these stringent dictates. And Brennan and the press and the rest of them who are going into HYSTERIA over President Trump revoking Brennan’s clearance, in my mind, have not done the work to understand exactly what a TOP SECRET SECURITY CLEARANCE entails and the dictates thereof.
    Brennan in retirement, is probably making over $200 grand a year at the US taxpayer’s expense just for retiring. Where is his gratitude? Don’t hear it. Shame on him.

Why do we have such a messed up system that allows former servants to grossly enrich themselves and their companies on access to our intel and secrets?? Isn’t that kind of what happened with Simpson and steele and fusion gps?

Final point–way fewer secrets, kept for much shorter time spans=dramatically less need for and importance of “security clearances.”

    Retained clearances are allowed in order to aid further service to the government, should it be needed, not in service of self.

    The monetization of retained clearances is an utter bastardization of their true purpose and rarely in the government’s, or the public’s, interest.

    Retention should be based on a “need to blab” basis only, re-evaluated annually.

    ANY person monetizing their clearance, yet allowed to retain it, must be made fully obligated to fund said clearance. Prorate the “unused” years on an existing clearance, and fully fund all renewals as well as any investigative actions made necessary through their non-governmental use.

    That said, ‘splode Mudd’s head, Mr President, please.

      Nope.

      If there were not such extremely high numbers of persons retaining clearances (at taxpayer cost to renew far too many if them every 5 years) we could better afford the cost of “re-clearance” at such time that someone who is no longer working for US might be needed to offer advice.

      Time limits on clearances for outgoing administrations should be perhaps 6 months: by that time the incoming admin should be fully prepared to take the reins on their own.
      Also every outgoing admin (or retiring clearanced congressman or clearanced judge) should be very closely monitored for however long the information they hold is still of any value whatsoever. This should not be considered an insult but a necessity: if you are a loyal good person, you have nothing to hide; and if you are NOT you will be unable to hide your treasons.

      Any unusual need for “advisement” thereafter (after the six months grace), a re-clearance should cost no more than a renewal of an extant clearance, and should remain in effect only for so long as the advice is needed and valid, then the reclearance is automatically rescinded.

      Since there would be far fewer clearances to be renewed, the cost of a few reclearances would be far less than the former cost of thousands or millions of unnecessary and potentially dangerous renewals.

      Sorry, Mudd and mudd-ilk: you got a retirement from us and we the people do NOT want to give you lifetime clearances. Get a job based on your own talents or just retire. We do NOT need you, nor your “think tanks,” nor your “advisement.”

    President Trump, please dedicate a pen solely to security clearance revocations and start revoking until there’s no ink left!

    The wonderful irony is Mudd’s outburst has drawn long-needed attention to rampant abuse of post government service clearances.

    Had he kept his cool, people wouldn’t be talking about it.

    Mr. Mudd appears to be anxious about his income stream being disrupted by potential changes in the Security Clearance process and procedures which he relies on to support the House of Cards he’s constructed for himself. He is the epitome of what we refer to as a Swamp Creature. Those no longer in government should automatically lose clearance unless good cause can be shown otherwise. Send him packing. Walmart is hiring.

      By making such a public stink he’s protecting his own clearance since to take it away would look like retribution. Perhaps there’s some reason he’s worried that might happen when the Trump frame-up is fully revealed? Besides his love of Mueller, he’s called President Trump a ‘dirtbag’ and his administration a ‘clown show.’

      Philip Mudd shifted his focus from international affairs to national security in 2005. He was named as the Deputy Director of the FBI’s newly created National Security Branch. Special Counsel and then-FBI Director Robert Mueller appointed Mudd to that position.
      Mudd and Mueller worked together at the FBI for more than four years. Mudd holds his former boss in high esteem; he has praised Mueller as a “legendary” leader of the FBI. In May of 2017, Mudd wrote an editorial for CNN commenting on Mueller’s appointment to lead the investigation into Russian election meddling. Mudd wrote in that piece:

      “I witnessed countless moments that would form my impressions of him. Threat meetings to discuss plots in American cities. Personnel decisions. Difficult conversations about the future of the FBI. And political dramas. No other leader I ever witnessed worked through this parade of risky, complex, and sometimes politically charged issues with the remarkable range of skill and steel of Mueller.”

    All Mudd has to sell is his security clearance. Look at his educational background. I know plenty of MA’s in English who have trouble getting jobs!

    From his own website: “Mr. Mudd graduated cum laude from Villanova University with a B.A. in English Literature (1983), and he earned an M.A. in English Literature from the University of Virginia (1984). He speaks French.”

  38. I love how Phil artfully uses the Mamet Principle by being willfully ignorant of Paris’ point. Phil sets up a nice straw man by claiming he does not get paid by the government. Who the f@ck made that argument Phil? The Security clearance has value to Phil in attracting private sector clients for his consulting business who think he has an inside track on info flow. What a supercilious douche!
