The age-old query, does art imitate life….



1.In a Vince Flynn thriller, he bemoans what has happened to our intelligence agencies when they became under the thumb of the Democrat Einsteins…..they gave up the basics of intel-gathering in favor of virtue-signaling.


2. “… he could see why so many in Washington thought the Agency had dropped the ball. The Agency had become the antithesis of what Colonel Wild Bill Donovan, its founder, had designed it to be. It was a risk-averse haven for bureaucrats to put in their time so they could retire and collect their pensions. Sensitivity training and diversity workshops had taken priority over recruiting case officers with foreign language skills who had the chutzpah it took to run covert ops.

Donovan and Roosevelt understood that you didn’t hire decent, respectable, risk-averse family men to spy on the enemy. You hired risk- takers who were willing to put their lives on the line to get a piece of information that might make the difference. It was not a business for the meek, buttoned-up type. It was a business for daredevils who liked to gamble. Signal and photographic intelligence now replaced eyes and ears on the ground.

The billion-dollar satellites and ground intercept and relay stations were clean.
There was one big problem, though; the enemy knew they were being watched and listened to, and went to great lengths to hide what they were doing from the big prying eyes and ears in the sky.

The CIA had become just another Washington bureaucracy. A money-sucking black hole of political correctness. In short, the CIA was a reflection of the times and its political leaders.”
Flynn, "Executive Power"






3. Now, where did he get that idea????

Is any of that true??? And if so…who are the politicians who emasculated our spy agencies….and where are they today???





4. Every single bit of it is true….and largely responsible for the thousands of dead Americans in 9/11.
And where are they today?

One of ‘em is sitting in the Oval Office….probably taking a nap.



5. “In the wake of the September 11th terror attack, some legislators are now proclaiming their commitment to unleashing the CIA and rebuilding its human “assets.” Just a short while ago these same legislators were leading the charge to curtail the agency. One such convert is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Joseph Biden. The Delaware Democrat was one of seventeen Senators who voted in 1974 to ban all covert operations, and proudly noted during his 1988 campaign for president that he had threatened to “go public” with covert action plans by the Reagan administration, causing them to cancel the operations.

Hopefully Senator Biden, and other congressional converts, are undergoing a genuine epiphany. Perhaps they now realize, as Henry Kissinger once observed about the Church Committee, that it is an illusion that “tranquility can be achieved by an abstract purity of motive for which history offers no example.” It is precisely this illusion which has prevailed in congressional circles since the heyday of Frank Church and Otis Pike. As Church himself once argued, the United States should not “fight fire with fire . . . evil with evil.”

Adults have reasons to vote for, or against a candidate….not merely the ‘D’ in front of their name.

Biden voters are simply trained seals who do as ordered.

As you linked to the OP but were unable to refute anything therein, I assume you recognize what a mistake Biden has been, and realize how poor a choice you made.
And you had inadvertently verified the OP (better look up 'verified').

Who is more stupid, you or Joe Biden?

Why don't you give me an example of what policies I should have disagreed with......

....bet you can't.



Let's narrow the question down, just to help answer whether you or Joe Biden is more stupid.

You've got my vote because you voted for the fool and can't explain your vote.

You wield a double-edged sword of ignorance: you know nothing, and even when concepts are explained, you understand nothing.

With many of the Wehrmacht.....Democrat, voters, I have asked a question that any intelligent voter should be able to provide: while I can articulate Trump policies which I can explain and defend, your voters cannot either explain any Trump policies they voted against......
....or Biden policies they voted for.


You've made a grave error.
As stated in Luke 23:34, you need to ask as follows... “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

The import of the OP is simply that there are no good reasons to vote for Biden, and I specified the damage he did to our intelligence gathering ability.


The damage done by the Democrats, and specifically Joe Biden, are indefensible.


During the 1970’s, as a result of Vietnam, Watergate and domestic spying, the Congress decided to gain control over the intelligence community.“…Congress moved in the mid-1970s to “reassert” its role in shaping American foreign policy, including the most controversial tool of that policy, covert action. Secrecy was seen as antithetical to the American way, and there was widespread agreement that “rogue” agencies such as the CIA were a threat to liberty.

a. [Democrat] Senator Frank Church and his allies claimed that an assertive legislative role would bring the United States “back to the genius of the Founding Fathers.” This assertion was made despite the fact that American presidents from 1789 to 1974 were given wide latitude to conduct clandestine operations they believed were in the national interest.

b. The damage done to the CIA by this congressional oversight regime (Democrat-controlled Pike and Church Committees) is quite extensive.

c. [A]s Henry Kissinger once observed about the Church Committee, that it is an illusion that “tranquility can be achieved by an abstract purity of motive for which history offers no example.” It is precisely this illusion which has prevailed in congressional circles since the heyday of Frank Church and Otis Pike. As Church himself once argued, the United States should not “fight fire with fire . . . evil with evil.”

d. [C]hairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Joseph Biden,…[t]he Delaware Democrat was one of seventeen Senators who voted in 1974 to ban all covert operations, and proudly noted during his 1988 campaign for president that he had threatened to “go public” with covert action plans by the Reagan administration, causing them to cancel the operations.

Senator Joe Biden might have been the tip the spear that impaled the intelligence community, turning it into the untrustworthy bureaucracy we see today....but he was simply one more low-life Democrat work for the party rather than the nation.

[Democrat] Senator Pat Leahy was annoyed with the Reagan administration's war on terrorism in the 1980s. At the time he was vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. ....disclosed a top-secret communications intercept ...Leahy leaked secret information about a 1986 covert operation planned by the Reagan administration ...had to resign his Intelligence Committee post after he was caught leaking secret information ....
American Chronicle | Sen. Leahy to FBI Director: Give Me Secret Information

In 1983, [Democrat] Sen. Edward M. Kennedy offered to help the Soviets mount a public-relations offensive in the United States. Ted Kennedy sides with Soviets. Traitor [Archive] - Georgia Outdoor News Forum




The novelist Vince Flynn wrote that about what destroyed the agencies....but he never mentioned the party that did it.

If an honest appraisal of what destroyed America is ever written.....

.....the Democrat Party will be the central explanation.

Did you see that sad performance at the press conference???

Compare that to Trump....he took questions anytime.....no note cards......no losing his place......took questions endlessly....

Speaking of 'thinking'......watch how effortlessly I can prove that you Biden voters can't think at all.....
