Where to start? Where to start????
Mike Pompeo, new head of the
secret police CIA came out with guns blazing today, hot after Wikileaks and their agency revelations.
Pompeo has in the past called for Snowden to receive the death penalty.
He said people at the CIA found praise for WikiLeaks “both perplexing and deeply troubling.”
“As long as they make a splash, they care nothing about the lives they put at risk or the damage they cause to national security,” Pompeo said. “It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors, like Russia.”
During the question and answer portion of the event, Pompeo said because Assange was not a US citizen and lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, he “has no First Amendment freedoms.”
Odd. Odd. Odd. Odd. Very perplexing. Very odd, because, as the article explains, Pompeo was praising Wiki just last fall. Things change. No freedom of speech outside the U.S. Constitution? Shows a lack of understanding of the Constitution.
Elsewhere Pompeo (maybe on TeeVee) also claimed that U.S. citizens have nothing to fear from all the spying because the spy agencies do not spy on them. Well, they spied on Pompeo’s Boss, Donald J. Trump, and associates – the President and all … but you!, you little people have nothing to worry about….
Trump has pretty much dropped the spying allegations – even as more and more evidence comes forward to irrufutably prove them. Very odd. The media and the Democrats are a little quiet too – not so odd. Just after the Rice revelations surfaced, the Guardian presented evidence of British Intel involvement.
You read about that, here, last month, because I’m faster than the Guardian. Not as fast as Judge Napolitano, however. He blew the whistle first – and Fox fired him for it. I’ve heard no word of an apology from the Legs Network…
I supposed the “America First” White House has been preoccupied lately – what with bombing Syria, bombing Afghanistan, and preparing to bomb North Korea – all vital to Americans and their interests… All… Oops! Some of the bombs went a little off target. Not that anyone really knows what the target is. The important thing is that Raytheon, General Dynamics, and the banksters make money.
Healthcare reform has been slightly delayed. Tax cuts can wait a while. The wall can wait. Hilary’s still walking (stumbling?) free. Yeah… But Raytheon stock is up and the Goldman grip grows stronger by the day! There’s that.
The GOP is doing it’s part for the Big Club.
For their part,the Democrats are … doing something. I’ve got to give them a little blame here.
From the above, one might gather that now would be the time for the opposition party to strike back. If we had opposition, that might happen. We don’t.
Considerably better looking than the previous alternative … and no email issues. NBC News.
The Dems have in their party a brilliant young female politician, one Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D, HI). Female and minority – all the things they say they like. She’s a veteran. She knows what she’s talking about. She makes sense. She is 100% against foreign meddling and needless wars. And she’s pretty easy on the eyes too. Perfect, right? Sane, young, patriotic new blood, hottie in 2020?? No…
Naturally, the Donkey Party wants her kicked out of office, maybe locked away in an asylum or something.
As Carlin said, “this is the best we can do”.
