Trump Campaign's "Enemy Within" Identified

When leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post revealed that there was indeed an "informant" (spy) attached to the Trump Campaign, the president demanded Sunday the Department of Justice investigate the matter.

John Brennan, former Obama head of the CIA, is warning Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan if they allow Trump to proceed with the investigation, there will be consequences.

President Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon, "I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump campaign for Political Purposes--and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration."

John Brennan, former director of the CIA under Obama, seemed to panic, quickly tweeting, " Senator McConnell & Speaker Ryan: If Mr. Trump continues along this disastrous path, you will bear major responsibility for the harm done to our democracy. You do a great disservice to our Nation & the Republican Party if you continue to enable Mr. Trump's self-serving actions."

Then Brennan tweeted this: "Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in his error."

This, of course, is a quote from Marcus Tullius Cicero, the writer, lawyer and politician in the Roman Empire.

Is Brennan really that concerned about our country? Or is there something else going on?

No question. Brennan, Obama and the Obama team have some things to be concerned about.

The New York Post has outed a Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence as the guy who was "snooping" into the Trump campaign, and getting paid by Obama administration officials.

Now multiple news organizations are also identifying the professor--Stefan Halper. Professor Halper who is 73, has a history, which the NY Post details, with politicians on both sides of the aisle.

He is a player.

The Post also details timelines in relation to meetings, correspondence, and payments that were made to Halprin by Obama administration officials

The Post says, "It's not clear if the professor was paid to speak with Trump campaign figures, but public records show that he has received large payments from the federal government in the last two years."

"The Department of Defense's Office of Net Assessment---a shadowy think tank that reports directly to the secretary of defense--paid Halper $282,000 in 2016 and $129,000 in 21017," the Post has learned.

It appears Brennan and his colleagues have something to be concerned about.

Why Isn't Congress doing their job and exposing all this?

Actually, they are trying, but are being stonewalled by what we have come to know as the "deep state"---career employees who actually run these institutions--- and are now being found to use the institutions to further their own personal political views and help defeat candidates with whom they disagree, and elect those with whom they agree.

They do not agree with Trump.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told Fox News, "The Times described the 'informant' as an American academic who teaches in Britain."

Nunes says the Committee cannot confirm whether there actually was an informant or the attempt to place an informant because the documents he and the committee have been demanding have been withheld by the agencies.

Sad. The employees withhold information from the people we elect to represent us---the people to whom they are supposed to be accountable.

President Trump is now demanding the documents be made available. Nunes says, "If any of this is true---if they ran a spy ring or an informant ring and they were paying people within the Trump campaign---if any of that is true, that is an absolute redline...You can't do this in political campaigns. If they didn't do anything like that, provide us the documents so we can verify it."

Nunes says he and his colleague on the committee, Trey Gowdy (R-FL.), were invited to meet with the Justice Department on Friday morning, but neither attended. They had heard it was just going to be more conversation and no documents.

He concludes if he and Rep. Gowdy would have gone to the meeting Friday, they would have been blamed for leaking information---that was already leaked to the press.


Mike Huckabee: "The FBI/DOJ considered briefing Trump on the Russia matter. Why didn't they?"

Mike says, "According to the report of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the FBI had considered giving Trump a heads up on their concerns about some the associations of Carter Page and Paul Manafort" (both formerly worked in the Trump campaign).

Huckabee says, "But the committee's report goes on to say that then-FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch decided against briefing him."

They say they didn't want to tip off the Russians, because they might go away.

Huckabee wonders why, if they thought some Russians might be snooping around trying to mess with our election, wouldn't these top Obama officials not give Trump a heads-up? If they were really trying to stop the Russians, why wouldn't they tell Trump?

They chose not to inform Trump, but to instead send in spies.

He answers his own question: "If they'd tipped off any Russian agents, the agents might have gone away. Problem solved. Right?...No---they wanted the Russians sniffing around the Trump campaign. If the Ruskies got scared off, it would be a lot harder to spin out the story of Russian 'collusion'."

Mike's right.

It's pretty clear Brennan and the bunch with Obama are not nearly as concerned about the Republic and our democracy as they are about destroying people with whom they disagree politically and philosophically. And advancing their own far-Left progressive ideology.

And speaking of saving the democracy---the Republic---and quoting the Roman Statesman and politician Cicero to make the point.

Cicero also said this in defining the enemy---that ultimately brought down the Roman Empire. The Enemy Within:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Free. Be Blessed.


  1. Initially, the claim was that the "Russians" had broken into the Democratic national party's computer system in an effort to affect the Presidential election. The story was that "they" were trying to harm Hillary Clinton's chances of winning the Presidency, and the claims continued by saying that many of Hillary Clinton's computer files had been stolen as well. NEVER in over a year has there been one scintilla of evidence to support or prove either of these claims. In "truth" if our own Defense Department put a spy into the Trump campaign in order to protect Trump from “Russian” interference, as has now been suggested by the spin doctors, why then did they not put a spy into the Clinton Campaign to protect the one they supposedly believed was the real target of the Russians? Any spy placed into any campaign by the FBI, the CIA, or any branch of our government is a violation beyond comprehension that could and should be seen as treasonous. There is no spin that can justify it. Further, is it at all conceivable that this would ever be done without the knowledge and approval of the President of the United States to whom all these agencies are directly accountable? That president would then have been President Obama.

    Over a year ago it became known that the Defense Department had been hacked and what was stolen was software developed to allow the CIA to hack the computer systems of others and leave a trail that indicated the hack had come from a different party or country. With that software now in the hands of others there is now no way to reliably claim or define who hacked whom, or whether or not Russia were the ones (if anyone) who hacked any software anywhere or even if it was our own Defense Department. If the U.S. Defense department is willing to plant spy into a political campaign of a targeted candidate, how can a reasoned person believe they would stop short of hacking software and planting the evidence to suggest it was done by the "Russians"?

    The FBI and CIA were created by the Congress, and they are by law required to provide any documents to the Congress that the Congress orders, yet they have been stonewalling the Congress refusing to provide the information ordered.

    Clearly there are indications of crimes much worse than Watergate here, and no amount of "spin" can change that truth.

    One thing has been repeatedly true throughout history. Absolute power corrupts absolutely! When that power within a nation refuses to be accountable and/or to take direction from it’s superior authority, this is the most dangerous warning sign a Nation can experience. Truly it would be a malignancy that will eventually kill the host.

    Let us all, that is the millions who are called by HIS name, pray that the absolute truth will be revealed to the American People, the Congress, and our President, and that any U.S. officials who are guilty at any level will be identified, prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and surgically and permanently removed from any positons of authority or influence within our Nation’s government.

    Truth can be hidden, distorted, manipulated, or withheld by evil but there is ONE from whom truth cannot ever be hidden, and HE is the source of all truth.

    Prayer is absolutely mightier than the sword!

    Truth is a lonely warrior...


  2. May God hold Brennan accountable in this. It looks like obstruction of justice to me.

  3. The 5th amendment saw written into the Bill of Rights to protect the American people from our government, not to protect the government from the people. It is time we require 100% of all government employees to undergo a polygraph test. We should ask:
    1. Have you ever violated the constitution since being employed by the government?
    2. Do you know of any government employee who has violated the constitution?
    3. Have you ever abused the power of government? Do you know anyone who has?
    4. Do you support the US Constitution?
    5. Have you ever used you position as a government employee for political purposes?

    And there are many more questions that should be asked.

    If they lie, they get one chance to come clean. If they don't they go to jail until they do come clean.
