    Deep State: Meet former CIA director, John Brennan. Pres. Obama’s security advisor who advanced Muslim Brotherhood operatives within our U.S. Government.

    John Brennan’s First Stone on ‘Treason’

    1 minute with security expert Frank Gaffney (click for voice)

    “Misdeeds by Peter Strzok and his confederates do not implicate thousands of other FBI and Justice Department employees, but they have damaged confidence in those agencies. Former CIA Director John Brennan’s Tweet that comments by President Trump in Helsinki were “treasonous” is a timely reminder of justified concerns about Obama administration politicization of the wider intelligence community.

    Mr. Brennan should be careful about casting the first stone. He voted for a Communist. As Obama’s Homeland Security Advisor, he institutionalized Muslim Brotherhood influence operations inside the U.S. government and endorsed its false claims that jihad is merely “holy struggle” and that Islam has “nothing to do” with terrorism. John Brennan’s evident enmity towards Donald Trump today was operating when he was in government. It damaged the objectivity and reputation of the organizations he led – and discredits him as a critic of the President.”

    Compare the story below with the July 11 rendition by you know who’s progeny. See any differences. Actual story versus lib spin to make it look worse than it is.

    DEWITT, Iowa (AP) — An eastern Iowa factory plans to lay off workers, reduce production and delay expansion plans in response to tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump’s administration on steel imported from Canada.

    The Quad-City Times reports that the Black Cat Wear Parts factory in DeWitt has confirmed temporary layoffs of 10 of its 17 production employees this week.

    Plant Manager Josh Daniel says he hopes to rehire the employees, depending on future negotiations within the trade dispute.

    Daniel says the factory has also scaled back about 80 percent of its production capacity. The facility will send around 90 tons (82 metric tons) of monthly steel manufacturing to Canada, where the company is headquartered.

    He says the tariffs have halted the company’s expansion plan. The DeWitt branch had purchased another location this year.

    Trump is such a spineless, cowardly old draft-dodger & traitor to the USA.
    First he pisses off every one of our most trusted Allies.
    Then he kisses Kim Jong Un’s ass, gets nothing from North Korea but cancels US/South Korea military training.

    Next Trump imposes tariffs that pissed off our true Allies again and now US AG product prices have plummeted while steel & aluminum prices have sky-rocketed causing high prices for US manufacturers and eventually, us the consumer.

    Next Trump goes to Britain (our most staunch Ally) and pisses them all off, hell even the next two people that are in line for the crown,
    Prince Charles and Prince William, refused to meet Trump.

    Now Trump just met with Vladimir Putin and and stated that he believes Putin when Putin claimed there was no meddling or collusion in the 2016 elections.
    Trump is just Putin’s little bitch and has to be because Trump knows that Putin has all kinds of dirt on him.
    Not to mention that for years, all of Trump organization financing came from Russia because no reputable banks or countries would finance Trump because of all his bankruptcies.
    Coincidence that Trump bows down to Putin and kisses his ass…ya right. Trump is just a slimy little weasel.

    Donald Trump is destroying our country bit by bit, but you Trump supporters call that “winning”.
    I don’t blame anyone for voting for Trump initially, but anyone that still supports him after all of this is an idiot & traitor to our country.

      Spot on Ben.
      Trump is a traitor and the most disgraceful & disgusting person ever sit in the White House. He’s a coward because Putin has the “goods” on him that would bring him down.

      “Republicans and Democrats alike are angered by President Trump’s comments at his joint press conference with Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Monday.”
      Trump stunned onlookers by repeatedly defending Putin during the press conference from allegations that Russia interfered in the 2016 election and casting doubt on conclusions to that effect made by U.S. intelligence agencies.”

      “Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, called the media event “the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.”

      “Disgraceful” is also the word former Republican presidential nominee and current Utah senate candidate Mitt Romney used
      to describe the press conference.”

      Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine stated “”The President’s statements today in Helsinki demonstrate his continued refusal to accept the unanimous conclusions of U.S. intelligence leaders and the bipartisan findings of the Senate Intelligence Committee,” she wrote in a statement.
      This position is untenable and at odds with the forceful response this moment demands.”

      House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Rep Trey Gowdy R- South Carolina “”Russia is not our friend,” Gowdy said in a statement. Russia attempted to undermine the fundamentals of our democracy, impugn the reliability of the 2016 election, and sow the seeds of discord among Americans.”

      Senators. Marco Rubio, R-Florida and Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina both denounced Trump today.

      Where are the Republican Patriots?
      You need to get your balls back and stop this BS and danger to our country.
