Trump Finds Friends and Enemies
In March, the FBI’s own disciplinary office recommended the firing of its disgraced former deputy director, Andrew McCabe, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions pulled the trigger. But former Deep Staters sprang to the defense of McCabe, as if on cue, and tweeted insults at the people’s leader they hate, President Trump.
Chief among the chorus of former bureaucrats was John Brennan, who ran the CIA during Obama’s second term. Brennan admitted he voted for the Communist Party in 1976, so it is unsurprising that he would rant against Trump’s efforts to clean house.
Quickly McCabe received multiple job offers from Democrat politicians, which would be at additional taxpayer expense. He could also garner big bucks from a lecture tour at liberal universities, or like his mentor James Comey write a self-serving book with a hefty advance royalty.
Better yet, McCabe could form a band with Brennan, Comey, and James Clapper, all of whom are out of their positions but still dominate the news. They could name their band “Deep State Blues,” and perform to empty houses across middle America.
Trump played to a packed house in western Pennsylvania just days before these developments, delivering a magnificent speech that was decried by the media but loved by the grassroots. Trump laid out how he is trying to exorcise the evil that permeates D.C., which is fighting back like a trapped animal.
Fortunately, Trump does have some allies on Capitol Hill on this issue. Senator Rand Paul rebuked Brennan for his attack on Trump, pointing out that what is really disgraceful is how Brennan “had the power to search every American’s records without a warrant” and how that is an attack on “the freedom of every American.”
In another example, the IRS refusal to stop the use of 1.3 million stolen or bogus Social Security numbers of employed illegal aliens has compelled the fearless Tom Homan of ICE to risk the lives of his agents by conducting raids across the country. The public overwhelmingly opposes employers hiring illegal aliens, jobs that could be going to Americans, and the IRS could easily stop the illegal employment without putting the lives of any enforcement agents at risk.
