Nasty John Brennan’s Secret Trip to Moscow

John Brennan’s Secret Trip to Moscow

by Daniel John Sobieski   at   American Thinker:

The Russians say he did, and while some might say, well, these are the same Russians who helped put together the Steele dossier filled with “salacious and unverified” material, and may once again be playing with us, there is evidence that Brennan, the man who voted for communist Gus Hall for president, did make the trip in March 2016 for purposes unknown:

“It’s no secret that Brennan was here,” claimed Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov.  “But he didn’t visit the Foreign Ministry.  I know for sure that he met with the Federal Security Service (the successor agency to the Soviet KGB), and someone else.”

No further remarks clarify what Brennan was allegedly doing in Moscow or what he discussed with the FSB.  Syromolotov insists it had nothing to do with Russia’s withdrawal from Syria.

Sputnik News, a Kremlin-controlled propaganda outlet, quotes CIA Director of Public Affairs Dean Boyd as affirming that Brennan did, in fact, discuss Syria during the visit.  “Director Brennan,” he allegedly said, “reiterated the US government’s consistent support for a genuine political transition in Syria, and the need for [President Bashar] Assad’s departure in order to facilitate a transition that reflects the will of the Syrian people.”

The website GlobalSecurity.Org goes into somewhat more detail about Brennan’s Moscow trip without clearing up confusion about what the purpose of the trip might have been:

News of the CIA chief’s visit to the Russian capital was first made public on Monday by a Russian foreign ministry spokesman and subsequently confirmed by the CIA.

“It’s no secret that Brennan was here,” the Interfax news agency quoted foreign ministry spokesman Oleg Syromolotov as telling journalists in Moscow.

He added that the visit was not linked to Moscow’s decision to start withdrawing military forces from Syria, which President Vladimir Putin announced on March 14.

Dean Boyd, director of the CIA’s Office of Public Affairs, confirmed Monday that Brennan visited Moscow.

“Director Brennan traveled to Russia in early March to emphasize with Russian officials the importance of Russia and the Assad regime following through on their agreements to implement the cessation of hostilities in Syria,” said Boyd.

He added that Brennan “also reiterated the U.S. government’s consistent support for a genuine political transition in Syria, and the need for Assad’s departure in order to facilitate a transition that reflects the will of the Syrian people.”

Now, there are plenty of legitimate reasons for a CIA director to make a trip to Moscow, but when a Russian deputy foreign minister says he didn’t visit the Foreign Ministry itself but did visit the KGB’s successor, the Federal Security Service (FSB), it raises some eyebrows.

Consider that John Brennan is a Trump-hating perjurer who lied to Congress about secret surveillance.  He is the crown prince of a Deep State fiefdom that has its own agenda.  The end justifies the means in their world, and Brennan may have been up to his eyeballs in developing that “insurance policy” against a Trump victory.

Certainly, he ruthlessly defended his CIA turf.  The mind hearkens back to the day when an op-ed in the Washington Post, that right-wing rag, called for Brennan to be fired for conducting illegal surveillance of the Senate Intelligence Committee and then lying about it:

Brennan was asked by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell whether the CIA had illegally accessed Senate Intelligence Committee staff computers “to thwart an investigation by the committee into” the agency’s past interrogation techniques.  The accusation had been made earlier that day by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who said the CIA had “violated the separation-of-powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution.” Brennan answered:

As far as the allegations of, you know, CIA hacking into, you know, Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth.  I mean, we wouldn’t do that.  I mean, that’s – that’s just beyond the – you know, the scope of reason in terms of what we would do. …

And, you know, when the facts come out on this, I think a lot of people who are claiming that there has been this tremendous sort of spying and monitoring and hacking will be proved wrong.

(You can see the video of Brennan’s answer here.)

Now we know that the truth was far different.  The Post’s Greg Miller reports:

CIA Director John O. Brennan has apologized to leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee after an agency investigation determined that its employees improperly searched computers used by committee staff to review classified files on interrogations of prisoners. …

A statement released by the CIA on Tuesday acknowledged that agency employees had searched areas of that computer network that were supposed to be accessible only to committee investigators.  Agency employees were attempting to discover how congressional aides had obtained a secret CIA internal report on the interrogation program.

Brennan once proudly admitted that he voted for Communist Party leader Gus Hall and openly supports liars and perjurers like Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, and James Comey.  The possibility that he went to Moscow to personally obtain a copy of the dossier and similar material is real.  As I wrote here recently, Brennan may have colluded with foreign spies to help Hillary Clinton.

There is another scenario as plausible as the one asserting that Team Trump, and perhaps President Trump himself, colluded with the Russians.  It is that John Brennan himself colluded with the Russians to help Hillary win to guarantee his continued tenure as CIA director.  It involves the infamous anti-Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, used by Brenan and others as a pretext for a Trump investigation bonanza.  As the American Spectator reported:

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump.  One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election – Hillary’s.

Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy.  He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people[.] …

The Guardian story is written in a style designed to flatter its sources (they are cast as high-minded whistleblowers), but the upshot of it is devastating for them, nonetheless, and explains why all the criminal leaks against Trump first originated in the British press.  According to the story, Brennan got his anti-Trump tips primarily from British spies but also Estonian spies and others.  The story confirms that the seed of the espionage into Trump was planted by Estonia.  The BBC’s Paul Wood reported last year that the intelligence agency of an unnamed Baltic State had tipped Brennan off in April 2016 to a conversation purporting to show that the Kremlin was funneling cash into the Trump campaign.

Any other CIA director would have disregarded such a flaky tip, recognizing that Estonia was eager to see Trump lose (its officials had bought into Hillary’s propaganda that Trump was going to pull out of NATO and leave Baltic countries exposed to Putin).  But Brennan opportunistically seized on it, as he later that summer seized on the half-baked intelligence of British spy agencies (also full of officials who wanted to see Trump lose).

The Guardian says that British spy head Robert Hannigan “passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan.”  To ensure that these flaky tips leaked out, Brennan disseminated them on Capitol Hill.  In August and September of 2016, he gave briefings to the “Gang of Eight” about them, which then turned up on the front page of the New York Times.

Could it be that Brennan himself is the leaker of classified information and is up to his eyeballs in using foreign sources to gather dirt on President Trump for the purpose of keeping him out of the White House?  Brennan’s briefing of Sen. Harry Reid, which included information from the Steele dossier, certainly is a key indicator of his participation in the campaign to keep or kick Donald Trump out of the White House:

According to “Russian Roulette,” by Yahoo! News chief investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff and David Corn, the Washington bureau chief of the left-wing Mother Jones magazine, Brennan contacted Reid on Aug. 25, 2016, to brief him on the state of Russia’s interference in the presidential campaign.  Brennan briefed other members of the so-called Gang of Eight, but Reid is the only who took direct action.

Two days after the briefing, Reid wrote a letter to then-FBI Director James Comey asserting that “evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount.

Reid’s letter referred to some public reporting about Trump campaign associates’ links to the Kremlin, but he also included a reference to information that may not have been made public at the time.  He cited allegations that were included in the infamous Steele dossier about Carter Page, an adviser to the Trump campaign at the time.

It would seem that the trip to Russia we should be investigating is not Carter Page’s, but rather John Brennan’s.

My Days in Finland

My Days in Finland….by Glenn H. Ray:

I am a child of  World War II.   I was born male and dyslexic into a world which had not yet discovered dyslexia.   I was born into a world of old maid, Godfearing school teachers, learned, wise, discipline demanding, JudeoChristian Americans who during the WWII years, kept reminding me both privately in class  before my fellow students, with pointed finger in my face, “Remember, Glenn Ray, there are two reasons why you must learn knowledge:  It will make you closer to God, for God knows all matter, and by accumulating knowledge  you will  make better choices when you vote.”   (I can still see the size and shape of those fingers threatening me about two inches from my nose, first grade, second grade and third grade.)

I was the only student among 36 in each classroom who sustained such personal discipline.  I loved school learnings…..I simply couldn’t read books  beyond a page or two.  Yet, I loved maps!   It was big War time.   I could draw maps of the U.S. and Europe by heart.  I could read newspaper headlines such as “Battle Raging at  Midway”, and cut lines  attached to battle pictures at sea.  I had relatives in the Pacific Navy.

I loved Finland early in life….They had beaten back the invading Russians before the big War began.   My dad had told me Russia was a country run by gangsters.

I entered college, the University of Minnesota, fall of 1952, majoring in Geography,  minoring in Russian and European History.   This university at the time charged $35 per quarter of study.   This university at the time reminded incoming students that only 1/4th of them  would graduate with a Bachelor’s  degree, so don’t waste time.

I loved learning….I never paid much attention to grades.  I didn’t compete.  I loved Mother Earth, but  failed Geomorphology my Junior year.   Climatology was boring, but required.  I loved Astronomy….My God, What a Universe out there!!

Winston Churchill  was still alive…. He invented adages about as frequently as he smoked cigars.    His invention of language which haunted me most, ran thusly:

“THE MOST EXHILARATING MOMENT IN ONE’S  LIFE……IS TO BE SHOT AT!………………..  and    To HAVE BEEN MISSED!”

I was an alert child of that WWII.  We boys would play “bombing Nazis” weekly….more often in winter when we’d build installations to assault with snow, a  season  which   was so much more fun  to bomb with snowballs.   I often wondered what I’d really do in a war under pressure of  being  shot at or lying  in a “fox hole” awaiting assault as I had seen in movies….so after my first bout with college, I entered the army through the Enlisted Reserves.

I returned from duty without being battle tested and returned to the University to earn an Education degree, for I was already married and had to qualify for a profession I loved, sharing knowledge, as  my beloved old maid school teachers had instructed me.

I  visited Finland, Minnesota in 1956 pre-military time….a four day retreat required by the then University’s Geography department…I already knew that Finns, although then very Lutheran in religion as were Scandinavian Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, were not at all Scandinavians.   Finns were refugees from Asia as were (Huns) Hungarians of the Danube fleeing from the Tatars of Mongol invasions centuries earlier.   At the edges of the Gulf of Bothnia, Finns could find escape  land no further West.   They found  safety  in the thick  Northern Forests.

While studying  Minnesota’s forest  Finns of the 1950s I learned the culture was matriarchal.  I’d guess that no longer exists today.

While teaching Russian at the University of Minnesota High School, I became curious to  learn more about languages in general…so I began my studies in German, Spanish,  Chinese……and then  FINNISH….again each quarter at  $35 per quarter.

Dennis Prager, my guru of choice over the past twenty years,  was programming from Nashville, Tennessee this AM, Minnesota time.   During second hour he lassoed some guy from Finland for a chat, and was joking about the scarcity of Finns being interviewed on American radio, they are so remote from the active world.    Dennis is aware of languages….  Finnish is an Urgic not a Scandinavian language…..one of the toughest foreign languages a nonFinn could ever learn!   (Learning Chinese is kids play  compared to Finn talk!”)

As I remember 60 plus  years later,  the language commands fifteen grammatical “cases”…you know, the subject, possessive, indirect object, direct object divisions we have in English to direct information in some kind of communicative order.

Dennis was quite upbeat about the Finn friend he was interviewing.   Finns had lived borderline to Stalinist Soviet Russia for decades and yet, remained independent and generally democratic.  Moreover,  in truth, the Finns  defeated  Stalin’s invasion attempt of their nation  during the late 1930s.

My first visit to Soviet Russia was in 1966 when with more fact than fiction, it was still a Stalinist level police state.   I had been taught the Tsar’s Russian in Minnesota…..I wasn’t aware of such a nuance  at the time.   I spoke it as I was taught……by Russian  refugees from Manchuria when mass murderer Mao Tse Tung had finally conquered all of China in 1949.   Yes, I did sense these folks, my Manchurian Russian teachers of the language, were aristocratic, precise, and demanding of their language they taught, but I had no idea it was as beautifully spoken as the Queen’s English used to be.  I learned to speak Russian as I was told by these Tsarist immigrants.

When I arrived in the USSR in 1966, I immediately bought “Soviet Russian” clothes….saggy black cotton trousers, and a couple wrinkly long sleeved white shirts.  I wanted to appear as native as possible wherever I went…Moscow, Kief, Rostov, Sochi, Leningrad.

In Sochi I had caused a crowd of more than  hundred gathering on the shore of the Black Sea….Russians were very, very private then when in public  in Moscow or Leningrad.   Silence ruled, or a dozen or more  of armed police would arrive well armed to  scatter upon mere appearance.   Not so, this time in Sochi.    They waited ten minutes before politely dispersing the crowd.

As I was walking toward my residence, two attractive couples, Georgians in their thirties asked me if I would like to join them in a cave restaurant nearby.   They said they were on vacation.   All four said they  had enjoyed my conversations and answers to questions  with the previous crowd.   They seemed very, very  confident in carriage and speech, so at first I suspected they might be secret police folks.

They asked about my family, trade….(I taught Russian at the high school level), how many cars did I own, did I live in a house, did I own it, were my parents still alive?  (They were!)….and then the group paused.   I waited for more questions….but one of the gals direct  me to keep talking…(Please, just talk!   I have never heard anyone speak Russian as beautifully as you do!”).  She then caught agreement from the other three, so they asked me where  I learned my Russian.

I answered  truthfully….”From strict, very demanding Tsarist aristocratic Russians who fled to the United States from  Manchuria”.

Since then I have always felt some  guilt, for I never had a chance to thank these Tsarists  for their talents as teachers.

A fascist nation is a difficult nation to endure.  One is always in fear of the secret police.  Throughout my 1966 Soviet visit I never realized the tension I was collecting within me masked by the enjoyment of being able to speak person to persons more freely than I had expected.   The American group I traveled to the USSR with was made up of twenty public school teachers who had received a grant called the National Defense Education Act….a Eisenhower grant to teachers of Russian …..to educate our American young to know more about our major world competitor at the time.

At visit’s end, our group of twenty left Moscow for Helsinki, Finland on a beautiful late August day.  Three or four of our group of  gals strangely began crying quietly upon take-off.   Otherwise, there were no noises, no chatting, no activity, almost no breathing……only apparent exhaustion!

……until we landed, taxied, and halted  at our Helsinki air port….when with NO PLOTTING, NO PLAN, NO EXPECTATION, THE ENTIRE AMERICAN SOVIET TRAVEL GROUP SHOUTED AND CLAPPED JOYOUSLY  ALMOST  OUT OF CONTROL, AND WHEN DOORS WERE OPENED, DESCENDED UPON THE EARTH BELOW AND KISSED IT!

FREEDOM AGAIN, FREEDOM, FINLAND AT LAST!

 

 

When  in Kiev on the shores of the Volga,  I’d cause conversations with couples around age 30.   One Sunday I purposely wore my yellow swim trunks where thousands of males wore saggy black things about to fall off at any moment.

After a brief swim in the river, I intentionally approached two couples in their thirties sitting on a blanket playing some kind of card game to open a conversation.  “Excuse me, what card game are you playing”…..No vocal response whatsoever…which I expected!   I apologized for  interrupting, and then mentioned  I was a  “foreigner”, and so curious…..Still no response.    Then I excused myself and turned to find some other “victim” for conversation.   One of the guys apparently   bored about the entire scene rather rudely asked,  “Ot kooda vwi?”   ( “Where are you from?”)…and I knew they were trapped!  ” Ya, Amyericanetz”…and then paused and again apologized, but before I could finish my  words, I saw the shock on all three faces….and then they were hooked, as I had   hoped from experience.

They asked me to sit down with them and with great curiosity  quizzed me for two hours in the most polite manner.   One of the gal’s Mother then arrived on the scene.  I stood up when introduced to her, and that is when a large  crowd began to gather…..to more than one hundred.   There wasn’t a snotty phrase in any of the discussions or quizzes.  We chatted for another hour when six or seven well armed police finally appeared, and nastily shouted to break up the crowd.   Their uniforms were made of gunny sack.  It was 80 degrees F.   They were sweating like waterfalls.

They didn’t look happy!

I was very surprised to hear several voices from the crowd shout at the police to leave all of us alone….Several of them yelled…”He’s an American.  You’re embarrassing us!”  and repeated it again and again.   They physically separated me from my “new friends”  and told me it was time  to take a swim.

 

 

 

 

 

February 22, 1980…..That Miracle of American Sports! USA 4 USSR 3

 

More than half of the members of the 1980 American Olympic hockey team,  perhaps 14 players in all, were raised in, or learned their hockey  from my own state of Minnesota.

Wintertime between 1955 to 1965 I attended over 300 Minnesota high school hockey games.  I was the state high school boy  hockey ratings guy for the Sunday St. Paul Pioneer Press.    Roseau, Thief River Falls,  International Falls, Duluth East, Grand Rapids,  Eveleth, St. Paul Johnson, Minneapolis Roosevelt, Edina  were the hockey powerhouses perennially  leading  the ratings from 1947 through the 1960s.    St. Paul Johnson was THE hockey powerhouse  from the Twin City in  those days…..winning State championships in 1947, 1953, 1955,  and 1963.

Herbie Brooks starred at  St. Paul Johnson High School leading the school into  two state tournament victories,  1953 to 1955.  He was an awkward skater from hip to ankles, rather slow in the speed,  yet he starred because he was a star.   He was so clever on the attack with the puck under his control, spectators and competing players often seemed to  fell  he could ‘deek’ the goal posts.

In all of the twenty or more years attending Minnesota  High School  State Tournaments, I never saw a player who could out maneuver a defender as easily at this kid.   Herbie Brooks was a genius with the puck at the end of his hockey stick…..clever player who loved the game, a winner, who had a brain far more skilled than his legs.   HE WAS A WINNER by drive and  because of that brain!

(I think Herbie actually  majored in psychology while at the University of Minnesota, back then when the University really meant something in learnings.   This Herbie was focused that 1979-1980!)

I was not surprised that Herbie decided to play the Olympic Soviet team  (for practice) a couple weeks before the Olympic games began, losing 10-3,  at Madison Square Garden!   I was not surprised he’d work the blood out of his Olympic team players whether they liked it or not, during every practice until the Olympic competitions began.  I was not at all surprised that his superbly-coached team had managed to remain  undefeated by the time they had to play the Soviets.

Herbie was in charge!

Minnesota boy high school players in the 1980s were becoming more spoiled in their athletic surroundings than in the years gone by.  They didn’t have to play critical outdoor games in minus 15 degree temperatures any more……such as a critical  outdoor game  I watched in Roseau when the team  played St. Paul Johnson one January.

Mark Johnson blood came from Minnesota.   I knew his dad, Bob Johnson quite well.  ….a First Class Guy, if there ever was one!  He was a star coach at Minneapolis Roosevelt….and a ‘side kick’ of mine when we took graduate school classes together in the College of Education at the University of Minnesota before he came to coach hockey at the University of Wisconsin.

Herbie Brooks was a  genius coaching at that level at  that time to that Olympic victory that year, AD 1980!  It was made to be by our Creator!  His young, rather spoiled youthful team was tortured into mental, physical strength into  resolution and  endurance throughout those many  months of practice leading up to that Miracle on Ice……Team USA  was a much stronger, better balanced USA hockey team playing the Soviets during the last fifteen minutes than the first 45!   Take a look below during that third period following the Eruzione go-ahead  goal with ten minutes left!

CNN RUSHES TO BRING CHARGES TO LIGHT, BUT THE FACTS GET LEFT BEHIND IN THE DARK

by Adriana Cohen   at  the Boston Herald:

“When the news broke Friday evening that a federal grand jury has approved criminal charges in relation to the special counsel’s investigation into Russian election interference, the left wing media — especially CNN — frantically launched into wall-to-wall coverage of something that’s still under seal.

With three guests in-studio and seven other talking heads, CNN, which was shockingly the first to break the story, began breathlessly pushing the narrative that this was the big moment they’d been waiting for. This, surely, was the pivotal moment that would lead to the end of Trump’s presidency.

And though these anti-Trump media members went on and on — late into the night — speculating about who the target could be, and what charges they could face, it was all just wild speculation. But the fact that they were all so excited to speculate tells you everything you need to know about these outlets.

For all they know, the person or people facing federal charges could very well be members of the Clinton campaign.

After all, many of these same media members spent the week ignoring or explaining away the fact that John Podesta, Clinton’s former campaign manager, and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz denied any knowledge of funding the infamous and widely discredited Russian dossier on Trump.

An absurd claim considering published reports detailing how they spent a combined $9.2 million to their law firm, Perkins Coie, who then paid Fusion GPS and an ex-British spy to dig up their opposition “research” from Russian informants.

And is it any surprise that CNN was the first network to get the news?

Perhaps that is where some of the real “collusion” lies — between powerful partisan forces within our Justice Department and the anti-Trump media.

Not a stretch given we already know that fired former FBI Director James B. Comey admitted to Congress that he fed a reporter sensitive “memos” detailing private conversations with the president to spur the appointment of a special counsel.

A move that, in addition to whipping the anti-Trump media into a frenzy, led to Comey’s longtime buddy, Bob Mueller, launching into a politically motivated Russian investigation — thanks to a tacit partnership between a high-ranking FBI official and the lefty media.

Jason Chaffetz, former chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, nailed it on the head yesterday.

“All Grand Jury business is supposed to be secret,” he tweeted. “Leak after leak someone should be prosecuted.”

Regardless of what comes out tomorrow, when the indictment is expected to be made public, Americans want fair play and accountability on both sides of the aisle. If politically driven indictments are handed out to Republicans while criminal aristocrats within the Democratic Party get a free ride, it will destroy public trust in our justice system, the very cornerstone of our democracy.

If that doesn’t send a chill up your spine, nothing will……”  Please continue below to view an icon of St. Hillary the Great at her best.

Hillary and Her Podesta Group Are in DEEP TROUBLE!

Podesta Group now part of special counsel probe into Russian collusion: Report

by Sally Persons  at the Washington Times

“Tony Podesta and The Podesta Group are now being investigated as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion claims between the Trump campaign and Russia, NBC News reported.

The group became part of the probe after Mr. Mueller’s team looked into former Trump campaign head Paul Manafort’s finances. Mr. Podesta is the brother to John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, although he is not part of Mr. Mueller’s investigation at this time.

According to the report, the group was connected to a public relations campaign for a nonprofit in Ukraine called European Centre for a Modern Ukraine. Tony Podesta’s group worked on the campaign, but now Mr. Mueller’s team is looking at possible criminal activity through violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, NBC News said. The Podesta Group apparently did not filed the necessary paperwork disclosing its work in Ukraine until after it was reported in the media.

The ECMU was reportedly supported by a pro-Russia political party in the Ukraine for which Mr. Manafort worked as a consultant.

In a statement to NBC News, the Podesta Group said it was “cooperating fully” with Mr. Mueller’s office.”
