I have always thought John Brennan was a bad guy. Hell, just look at him. Besides the beady-eyed stare he would always take when he was on camera he always had a sneaky arrogance that screamed “I’m all in for Obama”. beady little fcker

I said every time I saw him on screen that that SOB was rotten.

A career spook with the CIA, Brennan was promoted in 2004 by George W. Bush to the newly created position of Director of the National Counter-terrorism Center. My guess was Bush knew the guy was a rat and wanted him out of the CIA. Remember, his dad, George H.W. Bush was once the director there.

He lasted two years before leaving and working in the private intelligence world.  After Obama was elected, he was tapped by him to be the new head of the CIA but ended up withdrawing his name from consideration because of opposition to his CIA service under President George W. Bush and past public statements he had made in support of enhanced interrogation and the transfer of terrorism suspects to countries where they might be tortured.

It’s my belief Obama knew he had a loyal lefty in Brennan so he appointed him to be his Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counter-terrorism, the President’s chief counter-terrorism advisor and a position that did not require Senate confirmation. A nice place to park a loyalist until you can get him confirmed.

Once Obama got elected the second time he again nominated Brennan for CIA Chief.  After some token resistance from the Right, he was confirmed and sworn into the office as Director on March 8, 2013.

Did ya know this scum bag voted for the Communist Party USA candidate Gus Hall in the 1976 presidential election? He later said that he viewed it as a way “of signaling my unhappiness with the system, and the need for change.”

‘Hope and Change’ maybe?—just waiting for a socialist like Obama to come along.

Let’s bust open everything Devin Nunes and finally expose the Deep State. America’s greatest enemies live among us.

Trump has them terrified because he’s the only one with the balls to go after them. God Bless you Mr. President!

Yesterday Elon Musk captivated a whole lot of us space geeks with a near flawless launch and return of his Falcon Heavy rocket test flight.  Besides the awesome science involved in the launch of the most powerful rocket currently available on earth (NASA has one scheduled for launch this fall that will be bigger) Musk tweaked the experience with a simply mind blowing quirk that has to be the greatest promotional stunt in history.  Instead of using some old inert ballast for a test payload, the entrepreneur scientist/marketer loaded the payload bay with his personal cherry red Tesla Roadster. If that was not enough, he plunked a dummy named ‘Starman’ donning the SpaceX spacesuit astronauts will wear on future flights in the drivers seat. tesla

Just as the video first showed the car and Starman, Musk orchestrated David Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars?’ to play under the surreal visuals unfolding before our very eyes.  Did someone really just blast off an insanely expensive rocket only to put an insanely expensive car into orbit around Mars and the Sun for the next billion years?  Yes!

Musk needed to test the Falcon Heavy. It is the first in a line of ever larger rockets he plans to use to create the business of intra solar system commerce. He just did it in a way that has set him apart from the other nerds competing for a foothold in the new frontier.

I spent more than a half hour watching the video recently sent back to earth of the Roadster and Starman hurtling around the earth prior to the final engine burn that would send it through the dangerous Van Allen Belt and into an elliptical orbit around Mars and the Sun. (I am happy to report that the car and driver passed through the highly radiated belt and are safely on to it’s final orbit.)

We are living in a most amazing time.
