John Brennan ‘Imagines’ a Post-American Future

People doing interviews always ask me what went wrong, how did America get in this terrible condition? Generally, the question seems to assume that America is falling apart all of a sudden. There is no doubt that America’s crack-up is picking up speed, accelerating at a truly frightening rate, but the important point is that the crack-up has been in the works for a long time. 

Take, for example, John Brennan. This year he is for Joe Biden; in 1976, he voted for Gus Hall, the Communist Party USA’s presidential candidate. In 1980—in his master’s thesis at the University of Texas, Austin—Brennan denied the existence of “absolute human rights” and argued that censorship by the government was sometimes in order. Then he was promptly hired by the CIA! 

Evidently, he was the sort of person for whom that agency was then looking, because he rose rapidly through the ranks, eventually becoming Obama’s choice to be the director of the CIA and, it is increasingly clear, a key figure in the Obama-Hillary nefarious coup plot against President Trump

Before you learned that the CIA had hired Brennan, did you ever imagine in your wildest dreams that the CIA would hire an avowed anti-American? After all, Brennan had taken a stand against the First Amendment and against America by voting for Gus Hall before they hired him. Perhaps you might believe it possible of today’s CIA because we now know it is corrupted beyond repair, but the significant fact is that the CIA hired Brennan in 1980. That means the CIA had already begun to deteriorate. As a result, the perfect man to head Obama’s CIA was ready at hand in the CIA when Obama needed him. That speaks volumes about the CIA.

Now, in 2020, Brennan is promoting Biden by referencing John Lennon’s song “Imagine.” That it might be a clever move politically speaks volumes about what has been happening in America outside the CIA. “Imagine” has become the post-American trans-national Anthem. Played every New Year’s Eve at the Times Square celebration, it celebrates a post-American world:

Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Back in the days when you probably assumed the CIA was at least trying to protect the American people, could it have crossed your mind that a former CIA director would promote an American presidential candidate with a popular song about a world without America? Could it have crossed your mind that doing so might win some votes?

Thinking of “Imagine” as the anthem of the globalist elite will take you far. The globalist elite, in America and abroad, is dedicated to a vision of a post-American world. Their project is to achieve that world by progressively diminishing American national sovereignty and progressively transferring political power to international institutions like the United Nations, the European Union, the World Health Organization, and the International Criminal Court. As American political sovereignty diminishes toward a vanishing point, the American experiment of government by, for, and of the people dwindles away. 

President Trump rejects the globalist project. In his first speech at the United Nations, he made that quite clear:

Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens—to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values…All responsible leaders have an obligation to serve their own citizens, and the nation-state remains the best vehicle for elevating the human condition.

Here is the real reason the members of the globalist elite—from John Brennan to the New York Times—utterly reject Donald Trump and his presidency. President Trump is imagining a very different future for America, and that is driving the globalist elite and the people who take their cues from the globalist elite completely crazy.

What is most amazing to me is that there is no scandal and no pushback from an aroused American public about what happens on New Year’s Eve. Once upon a time, presenting Americans year after year with a celebration of the New Year featuring a song inviting us to imagine a world without America would have simply been unthinkable. Now it goes unremarked, even seemingly unnoticed.

In any case, I say let’s take Brennan at his word; a vote for Biden is a vote for a post-American world. A Biden victory might actually get us more than halfway there.

  1. Joe Biden will bring us as close to World Peace as Obama had….He won’t. The delusion on the left is clearer and clearer every day.

  2. Like any large organization the CIA promotes from within the worst and most insane power mad control freaks from its ranks.

  3. What has become of “American Greatness,” Mr. Curry? It used to facilitate such a lively discussion of public issues. What’s with AG’s new restricted comments format? Imagine no “American Greatness.” It’s easy if you try.

    • Dear greg,
      Always great to hear from you, but I don’t know anything about a change in the comments format.
      I reckon it is a question for the editors–who are great folks, by the way.
      Best wishes

  4. Imagine there’s no countries. But tribes or princedoms or countries are there to defend us from enemies that wish to conquer and plunder us.

    And no religion too. But no society known to us has been without religion, because every society — and every human heart — desperately wants to know “the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.”

    What Lennon and Brennan are telling us is that they don’t have a clue.

    That’s OK if you are writing songs for Sixties kids. It ain’t OK if you are a gubmint spy.

  5. Lennon’s lyrics, are stupid hippy twaddle.
    Brennan’s repeating them is just more of the same.

  6. Jail them ALL….Brennan, Obama, Lynch, McCabe, Comey…etc


  7. I was a H.S. senior when “Imagine” was released. It was a goofy song then and it still is. My understanding is Lennon renounced that garbage and even supported Ronald Reagan.

  8. Brennan would never suggest that China as a nation no longer exist. Evidently, only the US and Europe do not have the right to nation-State.

  9. First, “Imagine” by John Lennon is stupid set to a catchy tune. Such is self evident.

    Second, the Declaration of Independence, the founding document for America, the most just, prosperous, most technically advanced nation in all of human history, cites “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” as the basis for its plea of freedom from the rapacious organized crime syndicate called the British Crown, led by King George III.

    So just as the British Crown tried to crush the pre-American colonists who sought freedom and self-rule, John Brennan’s Deep State seeks to crush President Trump who is the American spirit in human form. Further, inside every American is a Donald Trump just waiting to get out.

    Ponder that for just a moment.

    John Lennon’s stupid set to a catchy tune doesn’t stand a chance.

  10. The CIA has been screwed up since Sherman Kent promulgated the idea it should be staffed up with ivy league educated “thinkers.” (1948) This brain trust lost China, lost in Viet Nam, screwed up most of Latin America, did the Bay of Pigs fiasco, botched GWOT/Afghanistan/Iraq, etc. This is who hired a cretin like Brennan and elevated him into positions where he could wreak such damage. They have never had America’s best interests in mind but have always protected and promoted the interests of the internationalist-corporate-elites from which they stem. Ditto the State Department and the massive civilian bureaucracy that runs DoD. With Mueller, Comey and Wray it looks like the FBI is the same.
