Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Yeah, “judgment free” this, buddy. – A man was arrested at a Planet Fitness on Monday when other customers complained that he was working out in the nude, seldom a good idea at a public facility. When the cops came to run him off to the local pokey, he told them that he thought he was in a “judgment free” zone. So, obviously a Democrat. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?
You’re really not very good at this whole Twitter thing, Jim. – Ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey issued the following tweet on Monday:
Thought experiment: Make a list of all the public figures in this country and around the world the current president has criticized.
Ask yourself: “Why is Putin missing from the list?”
No responsible American should ever stop asking, “Why?”
— James Comey (@Comey) July 23, 2018
For the record, this goofy tweet comes less than two days after President Trump, in a nationally-televised interview, criticized Putin about all sorts of things and said if Putin continues meddling in U.S. elections he would become the Russian President’s “worst enemy.” That interview came just days after several other nationally televised interviews in which President Trump repeatedly criticized Putin. Those interviews come weeks and months after President Trump implemented a long series of the toughest sanctions the U.S. has targeted against Russia in decades, far tougher than anything Barack Obama ever dreamed of doing.
Mr. Comey should really take a different direction with his shameless attention-seeking exercises. This whole Twitter thing is obviously not among his core competencies.
Speaking of ex-Obama officials shamelessly seeking attention for profit, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders informed the collection of creeps and derelicts we call the White House press corps that President Trump is, at the urging of Senator Rand Paul, looking into the revocation of the security clearances for Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden, Susan Rice and Andrew McCabe. Sanders cited concerns that these sleazeballs were monetizing their security access and improperly sharing classified information with the media, which is undeniably true of all of them.
One reporter told his Twitter followers that there was an audible gasp from the fake reporters in the briefing room when Sanders made her announcement. Yes, one can only imagine the level of panic that immediately began to set in among this group of lazy, shiftless gas bags who have spent the last two years just cutting and pasting whatever this collection of Obama loyalist seditionists have fed them into their rote articles. Now suddenly, they face the prospect of having to actually engage in real journalistic pursuits for their information, rather than just being sock puppets. Life is hard, folks.
Some of the reactions were truly priceless. James Clapper told an interviewer on CNN, where he monetizes his security clearance 7 days a week, that “I don’t know what to say,” he added. “I think this is just a very, very petty — a petty thing to do. And that’s about all I’ll say about it.” Yes, petty, sort of like if he went on MSNBC or CNN and trashed your reputation on live television 5 times a week, huh?
Jennifer Rubin, a pathetic hack who serves as one of the Washington Post’s kennel of fake “conservative” writers, said this in a tweet:
a sickening example of content discrimination, violation of First Amendment. I hope they do it so the victims can sue https://t.co/VMa24EhzDW

So, this nitwit is so unalterably vacuous that she actually believes that there is some sort of constitutional right for a person to maintain a national security clearance. Ok, where do I go to get mine? Holy cow.
Interestingly, Brennan, who has been so hyper-vocal and outrageously over-the-top in his criticisms of President Trump – even to the point of accusing him of committing treason in his meeting with Vladimir Putin last week – has so far remained silent on the matter. In fact, that July 16 tweet accusing a sitting U.S. President of treasonous acts is the last tweet this particular seditionist has issued. Since then, it’s been radio silence on the Brennan Twitter account. We also haven’t seen him raise his ugly mug on television since that outburst. Maybe someone convinced him to get back on his meds.
Back to the question at hand, what possible legitimate purpose does it serve for any of these people to still have security clearances to begin with? It’s unimaginable that this step has not already been taken, given the unending efforts by this pack of disloyal seditionists to bring down the Trump presidency.
Some buffoon talking heads are arguing that it’s important for high-ranking ex-intelligence officials to retain their security clearances in case the current administration needs their advice. Wait, what? Are we really to think that President Trump is going to call Brennan or Comey up in the midst of some international crisis and ask for their advice? Clapper? The insipid Susan Rice? These people have literally nothing useful to offer this administration.
The only advice Susan Rice could offer anyone is how to bald-face lie about an international incident on five news shows on the same Sunday morning. Please. Plus, Clapper, Comey and Brennan have all blatantly perjured themselves in congressional testimony in their ongoing efforts to harm the current administration – that’s just a matter of clear public record at this point.
There’s an old lawyer joke that goes something like this:
What do you call 20 lawyers with cement blocks chained to their ankles at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean?
Answer: A good start.
Same answer here. Do it, Mr. President. Just do it. And please, add Peter Strzok to the list.
Just another day in how does John Brennan still have a security clearance America.
That is all.
