Yesterday, just when we thought the loons consumed with hatred, rage, bitterness, and resentment couldn’t become more unhinged over President Trump, their heads started exploding again, this time over the president’s joint press conference with Vladimir Putin after their 2-hour Helsinki meeting. Right on cue, here comes Obama’s former CIA director John O. Brennan.
No one who is paying attention can be surprised by this ridiculous tweet. Recall what he said just last March about now disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
John Brennan Voted for the Communist Party Candidate for President in 1976
From The American Spectator, piece by one-time Teri O’Brien Show guest Professor Paul Kengor:
Obama CIA director John Brennan, a subject of ongoing analysis at The American Spectator, recently uncorked an epic Twitter rant. Enraged by President Trump’s words aimed at FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, Brennan steamed at the president: “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America … America will triumph over you.”
More than one faithful reader of this fine publication emailed me about the irony of such words coming from a man who wanted Gus Hall to be president of the United States.
For those too young to remember, Gus Hall was the longtime hack and head of Communist Party USA, beginning in 1959 until his death in 2000. Not even Joe Stalin as a Party general secretary came close to matching Gus Hall’s interminable tenure. Hall was unwaveringly dedicated to a global communist revolution and a truly Evil Empire that was ultimately and blessedly consigned to “the dustbin of history.” Brennan’s loaded words echoed a phrase that Bolshevism made infamous: From the delightful Leon Trotsky to the charming Yuri Andropov, the exhortation evidently remains etched in Brennan’s comradely memory. “Go the place where you belong from now on,” Trotsky thundered at the Mensheviks in 1917, “the dustbin of history!”
Our former CIA director channeled Trotsky in the service of blasting Trump.
Of course, that’s precisely why the good reader emailed me. The reader graciously remembered my piece for The American Spectator in September 2016 in which I noted that the same Mr. John Brennan had supported Mr. Gus Hall for POTUS back in the Brezhnev era. Brennan literally cast a vote for the Kremlin’s man in Washington. Needless to say, the Kremlin in those days was a rather bad place that housed some nasty guys. Leonid Brezhnev’s KGB chief was Yuri Andropov. About the time that Brennan was registering a ballot for Moscow’s man in America to become America’s next president, Brezhnev and Andropov were giving the green light to one of the most shocking crimes of the deadly 20th century: the assassination of Pope John Paul II. Andropov gave the go-ahead to the Soviet GRU to hire Muslim-Turk Mehmet Ali Agca to murder the head of the world’s largest Christian church and inheritor of the Chair of St. Peter.
That ought to have raised a red flag to John Brennan, who, among other things, had been raised an Irish Catholic. His lurch to the far left occurred during his college years at the Jesuit-run Fordham University in New York. (Today, it’s unclear where Brennan stands faith-wise, with not a single mention at his official CIA page and other biographical sources and amid unproven claims that he converted to Islam. The Arabic-speaking ex-CIA director, who studied abroad in Cairo, has made very positive statements about Islam and the “privilege” of making pilgrimage to Mecca and paying homage to “the majesty of the Hajj.”)
In fact, if one studies Brennan’s admission that he voted for Gus Hall, it looks like he also suggested that he might have been a member of the Communist Party in 1980. Yes, a formal member.
Once upon a time in pre-Obama America, the possibility of CPUSA membership would have been a disqualifying factor to run the CIA. But not to the president that Americans elected in 2008 and reelected in 2012. To the contrary, Obama would have been highly sympathetic. It was likewise in 1980, at Occidental College, according to classmate John Drew, that the young Obama was an ideological Marxist, albeit not a formal CPUSA member. Only the most hardcore joined The Party — including Obama mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, whose underground code name for The Party was “The Church.”
But alas, that’s just the start of the irony in John Brennan’s Tweet about the corruption of Donald Trump. Observe that Brennan also blasted Trump for demagoguery, venality, and moral turpitude. Well, that took some gall for a Gus guy. Gus Hall was all those things, and worse.
I couldn’t begin to here lay out the full spectrum and spectacle (and disgrace, to borrow another Brennan description) that was Gus Hall, but here’s one particularly relevant item of interest: ol’ Gus was so corrupt that even the Russkies couldn’t trust him.
An eyewitness to that reality was Morris Childs, a remarkable individual whose story was told by the late John Barron in his fascinating book Operation Solo: The FBI’s Man in the Kremlin. Childs was Gus’s number-two at CPUSA. And all along, Childs was secretly working for the FBI.
John Brennan Thought Rep. Trey Gowdy and Rep. Bob Goodlatte Were Mean to His Friend, Disgraced Adulterous Smiriking Peter Strzok
So, should anyone be surprised at John Brennan’s over-the-top hate speech about President Trump? No. The Trump haters latest mantra (“Treason!”) is like their accusation of “RAAAACISM.” When everything is racist, nothing is racist, And when everything the president does is “treason,” nothing is treason, or perhaps that statement is incorrect. Perhaps the real treason is an American voting for the Communist Party of the USA.
Last week, this spewing cauldron of rage concealed inside a human body, John Brennan, went off on GOP members of Congress for being mean to an adulterous liar, disgraced (notice that word comes up a lot when we’re talking about Brennan and his friends) FBI agent Peter Strzok.
All that said, Brennan, who has a long-standing feud with the truth, is the last person who should be lecturing the public on credibility, trust, and “unconscionable” behavior.
In a better world, a lifetime bureaucrat whose tenure as CIA chief can be best described by the phrases “bald-faced liar” and “drone war enthusiast” would have at least enough shame to crawl into a hole, never to emerge again.
From spying on the U.S. Senate, to lying repeatedly about spying on the U.S. Senate, to supporting torture programs until they were no longer politically expedient, to lying about drone war kills, you’d think the man who formerly headed the CIA would have at least enough self-awareness to realize the absurdity of denouncing others for unethical behavior.
But this is John Brennan. He’s not a standup, ethical person. He just plays one on TV.
Exactly. Yesterday, as The Hill reports, Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida called out Brennan for his commie-loving past. Good for him. If you know any low information voters, please share this post with them because they are not going to hear this information on the Fake News or Pretend News.
