Conservative Senators Must Oppose Gina Haspel For CIA Director

In her testimony yesterday, Gina Haspel gave conservatives a rare insight into how operatives of the Deep State think and work – and it should scare everyone who saw it or has read about it. What’s more, Haspel gave conservatives concerned about Russia, China and the war Islam has declared on the West absolutely no reason to vote for her.

The Counterintelligence Probe’s Phantom Origin

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The probe didn’t start “by the book.” It started largely on the say-so of John Brennan, whose CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign. We know from Brennan’s own testimony and leaks that he had been lobbying the FBI to start the probe since at least the spring of 2016. But whatever alleged intelligence Brennan gave to the FBI, it was too flaky for the FBI to commit to print.

Comey and Brennan, Leaders of the Coup

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

“This is not a tin-pot dictatorship,” says Comey. But aren’t Brennan and Comey acting like officials of a displaced one? They are trying to claw back to power by spreading unverified charges against a duly elected president. Brennan says without evidence that the Russians have “something” on Trump. Comey says without evidence that it is “possible” Trump paid prostitutes in Moscow to urinate on each other. Here we have the two former guardians of the nation’s secrets showing less restraint than gossip columnists at TMZ.

Why the FBI Is Dodging Nunes

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The FBI will eventually have to fess up to the politicization to which it succumbed — that the most virulent Hillary partisan imaginable, John Brennan, had put pressure on FBI officials to start the probe, that a Trump hater, Peter Strzok, formally opened up the probe, that the smears of a paid opposition researcher for Hillary, Christopher Steele, contributed to the probe, that scandalous “intelligence-sharing” between Brennan and foreign intelligence agencies shaped the probe, and that FBI officials suspected the probe was unfounded but pursued it anyways at the insistence of Obama officials.

John Brennan, Obama’s Head of the Innuendo Community

George Neumayr and R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Brennan was in effect laundering his anti-Trump smears and hunches through foreign intelligence officials, then playing the innocent conduit for “tips” from our “allies.” In the process, Brennan, not Trump, became an agent for Russian disinformation, turning into its most prized useful idiot — a Trump hater too fanatical and stupid to realize or care that Putin was pissing on him and America through bogus “intelligence.”

John Brennan's Thwarted Coup

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Nothing in this show trial bears any relationship to reality or justice. It is simply an expression of power politics, which doesn’t always end well for its exponents. As even an old Gus Hall supporter like John Brennan must know, and perhaps his fulminating panic indicates a dawning awareness of it, those who talk the loudest about their enemies heading for the ash heap of history often end up in it.

General Mike Flynn’s Only Crime

In Afghanistan and at the DIA Mike Flynn proved that his adversaries were shallow, small minded and incompetent against America’s greatest enemies, but in their shallowness, small mindedness and incompetence they were still vicious enough and tenacious enough to get him.

It Was a ‘Brennan Operation’

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

It is obvious that [Obama’s CIA director John] Brennan’s circle was responsible for many if not most of the criminal leaks. Why doesn’t the FBI raid Brennan’s home and rifle through his records? The reason that won’t happen is that the ruling class and deep state, which are composed largely of aging radicals, protects traitors while punishing patriots.

Obamagate’s Origin in John Brennan

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The press showered Brennan in reverential coverage last week, casting him as a patriot of the highest order. What a joke. He is a political hack and anti-American radical to his core — a supporter of the American Communist Party during the Cold War and now a tool of Islamic propagandists during the present conflict.

Dirty Harry Reid's Role in Obamagate

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Was the CIA's John Brennan using Reid to put additional pressure on James Comey to accelerate his investigation into Trumpworld? What emerges from these fragments is a picture of far-flung and stunningly flaky political espionage — a game of Russian whispers played by partisans desperate to interpret the shoddiest “intelligence” in the most sinister light in order to help Hillary and hurt Trump.

John Brennan and Baltic Spies Teamed Up to Defeat Trump

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Both Brennan and officials in the Baltic States had strong incentives to help Hillary and hurt Trump. That Brennan and some Baltic spies teamed up to inflate the significance of some half-baked intelligence from a recording isn’t surprising. Only in such a feverish partisan milieu would basic questions go unasked, such as: Is it really a good idea to investigate a political opponent on the basis of a lead provided by a country that wants to see him lose?

How John Brennan and Some Brits Tried to Tip the Election to Hillary

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Why is it that many of the leaked stories about an Obama administration investigation into Trump-Russia ties originated in the British press (BBC, the Guardian, anti-Trump British journalist and pol Louise Mensch)? Did the Obama administration outsource some of its spying on Trump to the Brits, who had access to the NSA database?

All Roads Lead Back to Brennan

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Obama’s CIA director John Brennan wasn’t so much “worried” by the half-baked intelligence as excited by it and the pretext it furnished for a fishing expedition at Trump Tower. What stage that expedition reached — Did they only seek a FISA warrant but not get one? Did they get one but not actually wiretap Trump Tower? and so on — is of less importance than that it was launched at all.

Leaky John Brennan

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Brennan and his leakers see no irony in becoming what they once opposed. In the 1970s, they cheered as the Church committee castigated the CIA for breaking laws. Now they use the CIA for their own dark arts and receive applause from ACLU-style liberals. They have gone from voting for communists to taping Russians, from fearing the unaccountable power of the system to wielding it shamelessly.

The First Casualty In The Deep State’s Coup Against President Trump

There is an anti-constitutional coup taking place in this country. And on Monday the coup plotters registered their first kill: LTG Mike Flynn, President Trump’s national security advisor. In this must-read article we offer conservatives a definitive analysis of how and why the deep state took out General Flynn.
