Kentucky candidate for Governor (in 2019) Geoff Young said, “No Democrats voted to enact this dangerous strategy embraced by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). I never got any polls asking if the DNC should favor and direct millions of dollars to ex-CIA operatives, ex-military intelligence operatives, and ex-military war veterans.”
The strategy is a profoundly cynical attempt by the DNC to exploit the popularity of our troops in order to install more pro-war, neoconservative, Russia-hating, Iran-hating Democrats in Washington. It’s one of the most evil strategies the DNC has ever imposed on the US” he added in a recent interview.
Tip of the Iceberg
And that is just for starters in this spy vs. spy world. Not many like to consider the source but it is clear and apparent danger faced by Americans that the Democratic Party is being taken over by the intelligence community. Just to give a few examples: Representative Dave Brat of Virginia, lost to Abigail Spanberger, a first-time Democratic candidate and former CIA Operative who spent eight years recruiting and developing spies, with a focus on counterterrorism. This is more serious than what we ever could imagine with the white spy vs. black spy scenarios; both shades are set to commit subversive and covert operations in the open.
Representative Andy Barr of Kentucky barely defeated Amy McGrath, a former Marine combat aviator and first-time candidate—and also one of the birds of feather. However, the list goes on and on of those who were successful. And around a dozen so far, and who knows which ones are now lurking in the shadows for appointments and highly-paid lobbyist jobs.
What comes next is anybody’s best guess. As the Washington Post, not one of my favorite papers predicated prior to the election, how the Spooks have come in from the Cold, and they’re running for Congress. None of this should come as a surprise, as we have already been warned, as revealed in Despicable CIA Democrats
However, it would have been naïve to have believed at first sight that this was but a knee jerk reaction to Trump as president and the buzz over alleged Russians meddling in US 2016 elections, as if out of some deep patriotic duty. As the Socialist media reported, “the newly elected CIA Democrats have begun to attract considerable media attention, after an election campaign in which the high proportion of military-intelligence candidates seeking Democratic congressional nominations was largely disregarded or directly downplayed by the corporate-controlled media.”
Even feminists are in glee, as five of the 11 newly-elected CIA Democrats are women, a fact which is endlessly celebrated by the media, although there is no reason to believe that female national-security officials are any less ruthless and bloodthirsty than their male counterparts.
As my source, who first brought this story to my attention suggested to me as to do a big of shovel turning, to go to the WSWS web site, search on the term “CIA Democrats” in quotation marks, read everything they wrote about it, and absorb that information? My 2nd suggestion would be to read everything the Black Agenda Report has written about pro-war Democrats recently and start connecting the dots.
It then started to make sense, and especially now that Google is blocking the World Socialist Web Site from search results. Do Americans and the so called establishment actually know for whom these flag waving and backstabbing democrats are now working?
What do you think? I doubt it – a perfect operation has been pulled, rivaling anything done in Color Revolutions and South American styled coups. But that will whoosh right over the heads of most of the clever folks in Washington, as they seem too full of themselves with all of this mutual backslapping “team stuff.”
There are just too many in the rank and file who have been brainwashed, especially NEW liberals who have convinced by their own rhetoric that they’re fighting for some GREAT cause but who are, in fact, just a wheel in a vile machine so BIG that they don’t even know of its existence, and so stupid they think that now the shoe is on the other foot, and Democrats are back in control, LOL!!
Anyway, it’s an interesting bunch of worms we seem to have slipped in amongst. We may as well play them like a banjo for as long as it lasts – they, the populace don’t seem to be too much alarmed with the BIG story of the day, as big as Watergate and Iran Contra, in the United States (these CIA Democrats). The masses and the self righteous seem, however, to get moist with the thought of anything to do with Trump Bashing and Russian meddling.
But first let’s review how this is more than coincidence, as even before the elections military-intelligence candidates were disproportionately favored by the party apparatus, encouraged to run in districts that were among the most likely to win. Military-intelligence candidates’ accounted for 10 of the 22 districts selected for the most high-profile attention as part of the “red-to-blue” program, or nearly half. Naturally that took some planning and not from the DNC but real strategic planning, CIA planning style, in winning a “Democratic” House of Representatives back.
Red to Blue is a highly competitive and battle-tested program at the DCCC that arms top-tier candidates with organizational and fundraising support to help them continue to run strong campaigns. This begs the question, and where did the money come from, and if we are to trust history and known track records, much of the money for their elections came from either tax coffers, siphoned off or by illicit operations. That possibility is something that the FBI should be investigating, and give up its witch hunt over Trump, at least for a bit, over his grubby political, business and personal life.
It is no wonder that military-intelligence candidates amassed huge campaign war chests that effectively shut out any potential rivals, an indication that the financial backers of the Democratic Party have lined up behind them, making Iran Contra funding mechanism look like child’s play in retrospect.
It can only get worse. The political establishment will be preoccupied with Trump for now. It has waited with bated breath to get revenge in the style of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice.
And all the while this new generation of wise guys will start making hay while the sun shines. We were warned, and the writing was on the wall with the Democratic cozying up with so called intelligence assets; those same people who were only too eager for fight for the wrong cause in Afghanistan or Iraq. They will be the first to beat the drums for new engagements in faraway places that few can find on a map—and what most Americans could care less about.
