Laptop Dancing

Establishment media now acknowledge that Hunter Biden’s laptop, which contains information about his dealings with China and connections to “the Big Guy,” has no existential problem. Before the 2020 election, some observers now recall, 51 former intelligence officials proclaimed the laptop was only “Russian disinformation,” and not a single one has now admitted that Biden’s laptop was, in fact, genuine. That refusal is the true bombshell revelation. 

The signatories to the October 19, 2020 statement suggesting it was disinformation include former CIA directors John Brennan, Leon Panetta, and Michael Hayden, as well as former acting CIA directors Mike Morell and John McLaughlin, a host of former CIA officers, National Security Agency officials, and former director of national intelligence James Clapper. The statement adds that “nine additional former IC officers who cannot be named publicly also support the arguments in this letter,” which closes out: “it is high time that Russia stops interfering in our democracy.” 

For all but the willfully blind, this is a repetition of the Russia hoax, proclaimed by Hillary Clinton in 2016 and found false by Robert Mueller’s investigation. As this repetition shows, the vaunted “intelligence community,” like the upper reaches of the FBI and Justice Department, is now a partisan force for the Democrats. True to form, the CIA has also revealed itself as another woke bureaucracy that stands more for “Cisgender Intersectional Agitprop” than proven service on the intelligence front.   

“I used to struggle with impostor syndrome, but at 36, I refuse to internalize misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be,” claims an unnamed CIA employee in a recent CIA recruiting video. “I am intersectional, but my existence is not a box-checking exercise,” the CIA star claims. True to form, CIA bosses now believe “diversity is an operational advantage,” and want agents who “look like the U.N.”—not necessarily the best people for the job. Such a woke, partisan CIA could also be compromised.  

Clinton National Security Advisor Anthony Lake failed to become CIA director partly because he thought Stalinist spy Alger Hiss might have been innocent. Back in 1980, the CIA hired John Brennan, who in 1976 voted for the Stalinist Gus Hall, candidate of the Communist Party USA, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Soviet Union. Brennan never should have been allowed through the front door, but he duly rose through the ranks. In 2013, the composite character David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, tapped Brennan for CIA director. 

If the CIA lets a Gus Hall voter run the place, Americans would do well to wonder what other security risks might be present. It’s a matter of record that the CIA failed to protect America on September 11, 2001. Jump ahead to 2008, when the composite character, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, ran for president promising a fundamental transformation of the United States of America. 

His strongest influence was Frank Marshall Davis—disguised as happy-drunk “Frank” in the 1995 bestseller, Dreams from My Father—an African American Communist who spent most of his life defending the all-white Soviet dictatorship. If an outside scholar such as Paul Kengor can identify Davis as a Communist and Soviet agent, so can America’s most powerful intelligence agency. Whatever CIA bosses knew in 2008 they kept to themselves. 

One of the composite character’s first actions, in response to complaints from Russia, was to scrap missile defense for U.S. allies Poland and the Czech Republic. In 2012, the composite character told then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that “missile defense” could be solved but “it’s important for him [Putin] to give me space.” 

When the composite character canceled the missile shield, Mitt Romney said it was a “gift to Russia.” In July 2012, Paul Kengor published The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor. Romney failed to deploy the revelations against Obama, but as the Bain Capital candidate said, in what amounted to a direct gift to his opponent, 47 percent of the people were never going to vote for him, anyway. 

In 2020, John Brennan and fellow intel bosses recycled Hillary Clinton’s Russia hoax. As this action confirmed, “Our Democracy™” means what the intel community wants it to mean. In 2020 they wanted Joe Biden, and big-bucks Mitt Romney was also going for the price on the Delaware Democrat. After the election, Romney defended Biden as the winner fair and square, with no concern about Biden’s open boast of “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” 

In their October 19, 2020 letter, the former intel bosses claim “each of us believes deeply that American citizens should determine the outcome of elections, not foreign governments.” To paraphrase Al Wilson, show intel, that’s the game they play. When caught in a lie, the players simply move on to the next operation. 

American citizens don’t vote for intel bosses and the only CIA director to become president is George H. W. Bush. He ran on “no new taxes,” which he then raised anyway, and touted a “new world order” that is nowhere in evidence. Joe Biden ran on higher taxes and, predictably, on his watch the prices of most everything, particularly gasoline, are soaring. Sure enough, on March 21, the Delaware Democrat was talking up a new world order

“You know, we are at an inflection point,” Biden said. “I believe in the world economy—not just the world economy, in the world. It occurs every three or four generations. As one of—as one of the top military people said to me in a secure meeting the other day, 60—60 million people died between 1900 and 1946. And since then, we’ve established a liberal world order, and that hadn’t happened in a long while. A lot of people dying, but nowhere near the chaos. And now is a time when things are shifting.  And we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it.”

Good luck with that.
