What if it’s not the Russians? (Previously: Picking a Fight with the CIA…)

(Originally posted 121214.  What if it’s not the Russians offering up Thousands of Socialist E-mails? Just sayin’…)

One must ask why.

While the release of the ‘CIA Sucks Report’ was a foregone conclusion given Diane Feinstein’s drive to leave a parting gift to her Leftist base…

I remain convinced the timing of the report was designed to remove Jonathon Gruber from the headlines and allow the mainstream liberals something else to put on the evening news.  (I continue to believe Gruber, and his honesty about how Liberals see American’s, is profoundly damaging.)

That aside, the report begs the question “Why?”.

Why would you rehash what we already know?

Why would you emphasize enhanced terrorist interrogation techniques and our efforts to keep them alive while in captivity such as Rectal Feeding?  (I would remind you all that there are certain restaurants in Feinstein’s own San Francisco specializing in that very thing.)

Why would you give additional specific information allowing the remaining Terrorist A-holes to cross reference and pinpoint those involved?

I believe this fight started with Benghazi. It continued with the summary ‘execution’ of the Afghanistan Chief of Station’s career by officially outing his name.

And, the apparent conflict is being taken to a brand new level with the release of this report.

Is the CIA not being cooperative enough with the Socialists in our Government?

Might they have issues with how they are being tossed under the bus by an Administration that practises Drone Diplomacy?  Our deteriorating relationship with Israel?  Allowing North Korea and Iran to acquire Nuclear Weapons and the means to ‘deliver’ them?  Our inability to keep secrets?  Our ceding the Middle East to the Terrorists after shedding American Blood to keep it out of their hands?

Are our covert Agencies not being quiet enough when it comes to the murder of our Diplomat and security personnel in Benghazi?  Could it be they are not on board with the Administration, and the rest of the Leftists, who didn’t want to appear ‘aggressive’ to the rest of the world by providing adequate security?

Is this just another attempt to paint Bush as a Domestic Terrorist since we are ‘all citizens of the world’ according to our own home-grown Socialists?

I believe it’s all the above.

Feinstein thinks, because of her retirement, she is now beyond the reach of the American people, and this is a flying f-you to the very agency and agencies she over saw.  The very same Agencies whose techniques she previously, and repeatedly, approved of.

The Covert folks do not seem interested in being quiet about how this Administration is conducting itself. They are not interested in being hung out to die… so to speak.

They do not seem interested in continuing to do what they must while being used as political pawns in a game that is decidedly anti-capitalist.

There a was a time that many of us could fool ourselves into thinking that those who professed to be Socialists were doing so in order simply to get elected.

Now many of us, and I must conclude those in the intelligence services as well, are finding out those they thought to be donning a cloak of Progressive Populism are in fact… serious.  And the very folks that put their lives on the line for the rest of us everyday are suffering in the worst ways because of it.  Add to this that many of those we thought were Constitutional Loyalists are nothing of the sort.

We are watching the Republic crumble, and lives are being lost as a result.

Are we witnessing an awakening by those that keep the secrets?

Possibly… but I’m wrong more often than I’m right.

However, there is no doubt that a dark war has started in D.C.

Bits of it are finding sunlight.

It seems the Left wants it that way.  What do they stand to gain?

Is it an attempt at a purge?

Are the Progressives trying to consolidate power as they have been trying to do in the Military?


John Kusak

Here’s a guy I just don’t think about very often.

Yes.. I’ve enjoyed a number of his movies over the years, particularly in the 1990’s, but my world moved on and he just didn’t maintain that position of importance.  He wasn’t on my bus, so to speak.

However… I find him interesting once again.

Mr. Kusak seems astonished that there were no “Liberal” Democrats supporting Rand Paul’s filibuster of John Brennan’s appointment to the head of the CIA.  Rand Paul’s filibuster was brought about due to Mr. Brennan’s being the designer of the current Drone policy and the claimed unilateral ability by the Obama Administration of the power to kill U.S. Citizens on American soil.

While the Drone Debate is a very good one and needs to be fleshed out completely, it’s Kusak’s Astonishment that I’m fascinated by.

We have talked about Cognitive Dissonance in the past. It’s when an individual encounters, or realizes, their support for certain ideas runs counter to what reality presents them. It’s an extreme form of confusion due to the heighten level of personal investment the individual has in his idea being the correct one.

Well, Mr. Kusak is very confused.  Astonished even.  John’s tweets regarding the Paul event can be found at Twitchy.  It doesn’t take long and it’s worth reading all of them.

Mr. Kusak laments the absence of Democrats “standing up to Obama” over his supposed “transition” into something he doesn’t like but cannot seem to define.

John Cusack: Where are the Democrats to stand up to ‘regressive corporate warlord’ Obama?

This is where I feel slightly sorry for John.  It is exactly his ignorance of governing theory that fails him here.  If he would take a small amount of time and research Socialism he would not be so disturbed and might find himself understanding why the Democrats are not embracing Rand Paul… in ANY endeavor.

While I enjoy the alliteration of ‘regressive corporate warlord’ it falls into the catagory on meaningless.  But Mr. Kusak is looking for cover in order to square what he believes his identity of “Liberal” requires versus what the reality of the situation is.

It should be no surprise that Rand Paul stands alone save the few TEA Party and Libertarians that are brave enough to stand with him.  They are being called “the new breed”, but make no mistake what their principles are and who propelled them into office.  This must add insult to injury for John.  ‘How on earth can the ridiculous idiots in the TEA party have any connection to things I believe in!?’

This is where Mr. Kusak’s ignorance steps in once again.

His “Liberal” identity has put him in the uneducated position of supporting people such as President Obama who demand nothing more than his dependence and obedience.  This is the Socialist paradigm.

I would imagine he’s further confused because for many years the Republicans have offered this same exchange of taxpayer money for exactly the same dependence and obedience with only slightly less aggression.

Now that there are “Republicans” who are returning to what the (idiotic, syphilis ridden, racist, gun toting) Founders intended does he make the first step in waking up.

I have no faith that this experience will lead Mr. Kusak to explore governing theory any further than to heal this wound he is suffering and return him to the “enlightened comfort” of his Liberal ideals…  but it should serve as a fantastic example to the rest of us that presented with undeniable truth and Natural Law the Socialists, at least some of them, have to think.

I wish for John to look deeply into Socialism and it’s variants of Communism, Fascism, etc.  I hope he studies them long enough to see what the outcomes of such approaches are… the level of oppression, destruction and death.  I’ll make it simple and give him a quick reference: Killer of Men.

Good Luck John.

If you’re going to be a Socialist… then be the best one you can be.  But at least know what that means.

(It is also interesting that many individuals who consider themselves Democrats but hold NRA memberships and believe the Second Amendment is integral to their freedom are suffering from this as well.  It will be intriguing to see which identity/ideal wins out in the end with those folks too.)
