Does John Brennan Know Too
Much for Obama to Fire Him?

Atlantic, by Conor Friedersdorf

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/4/2014 5:14:03 AM

When John Brennan assured the country that the CIA hadn´t improperly monitored the Senate team that compiled a report on Bush-era torture, he fed us false information. That much is clear from Thursday´s news that "the C.I.A. secretly monitored a congressional committee charged with supervising its activities." Either the CIA director was lying or he was unaware of grave missteps at the agency he leads. There are already calls for his resignation or firing from Senator Mark Udall, Trevor Timm, Dan Froomkin, and Andrew Sullivan, plus a New York Times editorial airing his ouster as a possibility. President Obama could surprise

According to a post yesterday, Obama and Brennan go way back. Brennan knows ALL about Obama. His tell-all book would be a real eye-opener for those millions of kook-aid drinkers who voted for and still support the Manchurian President.

Brennan, at minimum, has the true story on how they blackmailed Petraeus. I am sure there are others, including Chief Justice Roberts that were blackmailed by materials obtained by the CIA.

I don´t think Obama cares about the drone strike issue. He´s more concerned that the CIA knows about his ´private, personal life´ that would shock the most ardent Obama lovers.

Everyone in this Administration is dirty and that includes the appointed heads of all government bureaus. I´m very surprised that Snowden is the only person who has opened up about this Marxist/Muslim/Socialist government.

Of course when he opened his mouth about the abuses of NSA, he had to sneak out of the country to avoid suicide by shooting himself in the head about 6 times.

"George W. Bush left us a CIA staffed partly with people willing to torture, and Obama will likely leave us with a CIA that includes torturers, people willing to kill American citizens in secret without due process..."

Waterboarding is not torture. Americans do not know how to torture. If you want to know about torture ask a Russian.

End of discussion!

Brenna, all the czars, most of the Cabinet, they are all True Believers. They will not write "tell alls", they will not turn.

True Believers never turn. ...they might turn on each other if one has proved not reliable enough (see Stalin, for example, and the purge of the Old Bolsheviks).

Think of the NAZIs and the "night of the long knives" when only the fiercest of the evil ones survived, to then wreak their monstrous crimes against the Jews and Europe as a whole.

Pray for Israel. Pray for the leaders in our country who are bold enough and wise enough to come forward and speak out. We´d better let petty disputations fade into the background... and know the difference between the urgent and the banal.

The barriers are down. Very little protects us from the barbarity devastating the Middle East, and erupting like infected pustules all over the "civilized" world.

This is not a religion, per se, it is fanaticism... in the most evil of ways, a blood-lust among nihilistic, conscienceless murderous brutes.

John Brennen is a Muslim. He converted back in the early 2000´s. Why would Obama fire him? They are simpatico. There is no reason for either one to tell the truth. There is no reason to fire him in Obama´s eyes. He probably knows everything. This article is a plant. Nothing will come of it.

Misdirection. Atlantic, by Conor Friedersdorf, look over here at the drone strikes.

Better still, look at Brennan´s religion (muslim?), document he was sworn in on (not the Bible), statements about Islam (see embedded videos below), and the 2008 hacking of the US passport office.

John Brennan is untouchable, not because he knows too much, but because he is AN INTEGRAL MEMBER OF OBAMA´S MUSLIM TEAM.

Please look at these two sources (especially video #5 in the first source):

Like with any mob operation, when you´re running the clever games this regime is running on this nation, trustworthiness and loyalty are the essential attributes you need in all your key players. Competence is a distant second, often irrelevant. obama trusts Brennan and Brennan is loyal and certainly does know a lot of the opaque goings on in this most opaque of regimes. So he´s set, a made man, just like Hagel and Holder and the rest of the mob.

As if the situation in Ferguson, Missouri wasn’t bad enough, Code Pink has decided to join the riots and protests. Code Pink infamously dressed as vaginas and paraded around the RNC in 2012. They also protested the maker of my favorite body wash, Ahava, (made in Israel), because it contains “occupied mud.” More ominously, Medea Benjamin, the leader of Code Pink, just attended a gathering of anti-Israel groups, including notorious anti-Semites, in Tehran, as reported by Buzzfeed: A number of American and European antiwar activists and conspiracy theorists have gathered in Tehran for a conference aimed at addressing supposed Zionist control of the

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk.

A convert to Islam who named himself Jah’Keem Yisrael (formerly Alton Alexander Nolen) beheaded one of his coworkers and was shot while trying to behead another on September 26 at his place of work, Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon
