Obama's CIA Director Voted for The Communist Party For President

Obama's CIA Director supported the Communist Party during the latter height of the Cold War. (Note: I originally said he voted Communist in 1980. This seems to be an error on my part (and an error of the guy I got it from); he's saying he got polygraphed in 1980, and was remembering voting Communist in an election prior to that time.)

Yes, this makes perfect sense, doesn't it?

CNN plays this like a funny, silly anecdote about one man's panic at the polygraph, and how he chose to tell the truth.

At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret.

John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US?

"I froze," Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate...

PS: This sounds to me like Lois Lerner's planted question to disclose the targeting of conservative groups right before that story was going to break on its own anyway.

I don't think Brennan is just offering this tidbit by happenstance. I think he got press inquires about it. So now he tells this funny, human, uplifting tale about that silly time he voted for a party sworn to overthrow the American government and impose a dictatorship.

And, thanks again to the Vichy GOP Congress for exercising its oversight responsibility. Assholes.

119 I was going to say, how the hell do we know for whom he voted but his telling us would do it.


To haul something up from several threads back re: my utter stupidity about statistics and statistical modeling.

I do not know anything about statistics and it's kind of like the offside rule where the more and better puppets you use to explain it to me, the more I nod and it goes right out of my head. I dislike intensely that I do not have a baseline level of knowledge so that when margin of error is mentioned (bless Bander, that was what he was trying to explain to me last night to repeated wait what was that thing you said about the stuff), I cannot evaluate if the results being presented are valid. That's what I meant about modeling. How are models set up, why is it when you give four different groups the same data set they get four different results and what concepts should I stare at blindly to try to evaluate what biases were built into the results.


Hell, it's the Black Swan thingy. Low probability =/= no probability and the Rule of Large Numbers says that even the most unlikely event (Cubs vs. Indians WS) will one day occur. Browns exception to prove the rule applies here.

"And we can only realize the promise of this institution's founding -- to replace the ravages of war with cooperation -- if powerful nations like my own accept constraints. Sometimes I'm criticized in my own country for professing a belief in international norms and multilateral institutions. But I am convinced that in the long run, giving up some freedom of action -- not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests, but binding ourselves to international rules over the long term -- enhances our security. And I think that's not just true for us."

What a sweetheart she is:


Angela Yvonne Davis (born January 26, 1944) is an American political activist, academic scholar, and author. She emerged as a prominent counterculture activist and radical in the 1960s as a leader of the Communist Party USA, and had close relations with the Black Panther Party through her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement. Her interests include prisoner rights; she co-founded Critical Resistance, an organization working to abolish the prison-industrial complex. She was a professor (now retired) at the University of California, Santa Cruz. in its History of Consciousness Department and a former director of the university's Feminist Studies department.[3]

Davis was prosecuted for conspiracy involving the 1970 armed take-over of a Marin County, California, courtroom, in which four persons were killed. She was acquitted in a federal trial.[4]

Her research interests are feminism, African-American studies, critical theory, Marxism, popular music, social consciousness, and the philosophy and history of punishment and prisons. Her membership in the Communist Party led to Ronald Reagan's request in 1969 to have her barred from teaching at any university in the State of California. She was twice a candidate for Vice President on the Communist Party USA ticket during the 1980s.

Why, when one of these "studies" come out showing conservatives hate [x] isn't there a "study" produced and pushed nationally showing how much liberals hate [y]?

Why do the powers that be stand idly by and allow themselves to be vilified without so much as a whimper about the absolute anti-American forces that make up huge swaths of their ranks?

I am sick of being considered a knuckle dragger by people I wouldn't trust to wash my lawnmower and having the party that supposedly represents my views say or do nothing in defense.

218 The American Left spent the entire Cold War enthusiastically supporting communism in the Soviet Union and every other place around the planet where communism raised its ugly head.

Looking at it from that perspective, it's easy to wonder if the Left's hostility toward places like Israel and South Africa were less about the advertised reasons, and more because both nations were an outpost of anti-Communism in their respective spheres.

Our side needs to go after these propaganda artists and take away their
broadcast licenses for making unreported contributions to the Democrat Party.
D'Nesh D'Sousa went to fucking jail for making an unreported contribution to a
friend for fuck's sake. Why shouldn't the head of CBS News be held to the same
standard? Their licenses say they will serve the interests of the community,
NOT THE FUCKING DEMOCRAT PARTY!The bias in the press amounts to 15-20% for the Democrats in every election
(according to Evan Thomas, a noted lib, who said this years ago). Without this
"bias" every election would be a blowout and Democrats wouldn't be
elected as dogcatcher.

Angela Davis split a church demomination.

Back in the early 70s, the Presbyterian Church (USA), having been taken over by progressive termites, gave money to her Davis' defense fund for the terroristic crimes she was fighting.

That was the last straw for a significant minority of churches who walked out and formed the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

286 Angela Davis split a church demomination.

Back
in the early 70s, the Presbyterian Church (USA), having been taken over
by progressive termites, gave money to her Davis' defense fund for the
terroristic crimes she was fighting.

That was the last straw for a
significant minority of churches who walked out and formed the
Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

Like no stupid college student ever. Insert eyeroll.

He then decided to apply for the CIA after seeing an ad for the agency in a paper. He worked as an analyst in DC, was Bill Clinton's daily briefing lackey from the CIA, and was chief of staff for George Tenet during Bush's years.
He is in love with the Arab world, as we know, although he is a big proponent of drone strikes. I highly doubt he is a communist. He may be a lot of things, but his voting in college, some 40 years ago for the communist candidate is high on my list of yawns.

I don't know any of Todd Rundgren's songs tbh.

But, here's one for the dad's out there with young daughters. It's sweet.

Go Gentle -- Official Music Video
~Robbie Williams

From Swings Both Ways

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3OWZaIpEDk

the lyrics are fun and beautiful and sweet

"Go Gentle"

You're gonna meet some strangers.
Welcome to the zoo.
Bitter disappointments.
Except for one or two.
Some of them are angry.
Some of them are mean.
Most of them are twisted.
Few of them are clean.

Now when you go dancing with
young men down at the disco.
Just keep it simple.
You don't have to kiss though.
Don't waste time whit the idiots
think that they're heroes.
They will betray you.
Stick with us weirdos.

Sorry, then, if I misunderstood you. And how he got a clearance is definitely something worth pondering.

But as I wrote upthread, early on in Levin's tenure at the DoJ, he discovered boxes of "Rules For Radicals" ordered by Carter's people.

2014: "Well, yes, of course Obama is giving several U.S. islands in the Arctic to the Russians. They're our allies now, and Putin should be rewarded for good cooperative behavior. What? What about the valuable mineral rights? Well, it's just a bunch of old-fashioned oil and natural gas. No one wants that stuff any more. The future of energy is in green renewable power."

440 My grandmother accidentally voted straight Communist in 1980. People would have really wondered who voted Commie in little old Nelson Twp. in NW rural IL, but she told them she made a mistake. They voided that and let her vote again.

441 Looking at it from that perspective, it's easy to wonder if the Left's hostility toward places like Israel and South Africa were less about the advertised reasons, and more because both nations were an outpost of anti-Communism in their respective spheres.

The Left was fine with Israel up until the 6 Day War. Israel was a pretty socialist place. Lots of hippies went to go work on kibbutzes. France was allied with Israel.

The 6 Day War occurred at a time when "good brown people oppressed by evil white Imperialists" was taking root on college campuses and young fools were starting to admire violent "revolutionaries" like Uncle Ho and Che and Davis. Memories of the Holocaust had faded. Israel went from being a cool "victim" socialist country to a brutal occupier in a flash.

That was the hard Left though. Most liberals still admired Israel. It took a long time for the "Israel is evil" message to permeate the entire Democrat party. Now it has - but the Jews will still vote for Hill in November.

442 Victoria Jackson in "There's a Communist Living In the White House" was, unfortunately, 100% correct.

443 51% of America voted for a Communist in 2012.
