Contrary to rumor, I was not snatched by aliens yesterday.
Not unless Lupus is from Alpha Centauri.
No, it was just a particularly crippling flare.
I’m still not exactly five-by-five. But since I didn’t write a damn thing yesterday, I thought I should at least try to give you something new to read.
Besides, having Hillary in a bed sheet at the top of my website for two days was long enough.
So I spent yesterday lying on the couch, cursing Lupus and reading “The Survivor” – the first of the Mitch Rapp books written by Kyle Mills.
This might be blasphemy, but this Kyle Mills not only does an incredible job keeping with Vince Flynn’s style; he also write one heck of an exciting story. I’m only halfway through it, but boy, is it good.
Any old how.
Every so often, I’d take a break from reading and go onto Twitter just to see what was happening in the world where Mitch Rapp doesn’t exist. And the whole security clearance hullaballoo was so ridiculous, I would have rolled my eyes repeatedly if the Lupus headache didn’t make eyerolling hurt.
How DARE Trump even CONSIDER revoking the security clearance of Obama’s intel people!!!!
Good old Jake Tapper decided that the sole reason Trump was considering it was because Clapper, Brennan, Rice, Comey and McCabe were criticizing him.
In fact, Jake didn’t assume that, he just flat-out and said that was the reason.

Apparently Jake Tapper can see into Donald Trump’s soul.
The reasons given by Sarah Huckabee are the exact same reasons Rand Paul even brought this up to President Trump.
This was my favorite part of Sarah Huckabee Sanders' press conference. https://t.co/gfXfiT3Kdf

Is John Brennan monetizing his security clearance? Is John Brennan making millions of dollars divulging secrets to the mainstream media with his attacks on @realDonaldTrump ?
— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) July 23, 2018
The truth is, Comey and McCabe should have been stripped of any security clearance the second they were fired.
Because they were fired.
As for Brennan, Rice and Clapper, all three of them abused and mishandled classified information.
But one of the funniest arguments came from
Fusion GPS’s NBC’s Ken Dilanian
So in other words, Rand Paul is correct to suggest that Brennan is "monetizing his security clearance." Brennan would be far from the only one doing this, but he's clearly among the most brazen pic.twitter.com/ZcdiCaSn8f

I have no doubt the reason CNN and NBC are both super upset about this is because the whole reason they hired Clapper and Brennan was because they had security clearance.
If their clearance gets revoked, CNN and NBC will no longer be getting their money’s worth.
I guess James Clapper doesn't see the irony in his rushing to CNN to whine like a baby that Trump revoking his security clearance is a "very very petty thing to do."

1) Shocking this hasn't happened already. 2) Not even for their over-the-top partisanship or involvement in scandal but just because they appear to have lost their hold on reality and rational thinking. https://t.co/oEahMcNF8y

This isn’t really rocket science.
You have people who were involved in a cabal to stop Trump from being elected and then after the election worked to undermine and delegitimize his Presidency.
Why in Lucifer’s reach would they be able to retain a security clearance?
Brennan led spy op after POTUS, regularly accuses him of treason
Clapper leaked dossier brief to CNN
Comey signs baseless FISA app
Hayden mentally unstable, believes everything is Shoah
Rice a serial unmasker
McCabe proven leaker
Time to revoke clearanceshttps://t.co/SSsgGHHVCk

I realize that everything President Trump does will be met with a chorus of shrieks and accusations.
But there is nothing about this that is in any way troubling.
And the howler monkeys in the news media are only making themselves look like even bigger idiots.
The President has the power. You can dislike it all you want, but his exercising it can't be an abuse of it. Unless you're an unhinged loon. https://t.co/RDJecnPP3j
