I remember this episode! This is the one where Andy is out of town and Barney is in charge. He makes Gomer a deputy and all hell breaks loose.

So, will Brennan be talking in an empty room?

Actually a room full of empty heads would be accurate "at this point" 😎

Well I mean they need someone to brief them afterall. They abhor Hitler I mean Trump and feel a wee bit overpowered lately as the last bastion of revolutionaries fighting the evil overlord. They are shall we say hypervigilant. Does anyone know what the word means? Hyper means doing a lot of activity, vigilant means you're watching closely for threats.

The psychological term for being in a state of high alert is “hypervigilance”. Taking a look at the words, “hyper” means an increase while vigilance speaks to the levels of sensory perceptions. Ultimately hypervigilance relates to how keen one reacts to different stimuli.

As one of the main symptoms of PTSD, hypervigilance is closely associated with this particular disorder. In fact, if a therapist diagnoses a patient with PTSD, then the first thing he or she will do is look for clinical signs of hypervigilance. The good news is that these symptoms manifest themselves quite overtly in a physical fashion. However, the key to understanding hypervigilance is not pigeonholing it into just a physical disorder.

Hypervigilance has consequences for a person’s emotions along with their relationships. Simply put, for people who have a relationship with a hypervigilant person, these relationships can be exhausting and require boundaries. Though PTSD is not a mental illness in the way bipolar disorder is, it can be quite debilitating.

Although PTSD hypervigilance is the most common, hypervigilance can be a symptom of other types of mental health issues. However, a disorder like schizophrenia has different modalities of treatment than PTSD.

Physical symptoms of hypervigilance can include the following:

Excessive sweating
Rapid heartbeat and elevated blood pressure
Fast, shallow breathing and/or hyperventilation
Extreme fatigue or exhaustion
These physical symptoms, or interoceptive exposure revealing a hypervigilant personality, show how the body reacts to the mind. When the mind is on alert, the body responds to support the senses and react accordingly to stimuli. Being on alert is quite taxing, hence the fatigue and exhaustion—especially when respiration is abbreviated.

Emotional symptoms of hypervigilance can include the following:

An increase in fear or anxiety
Consistent feelings of panic
Persistent worrying

This. At least someone is going to tell them something about it, not that it matters. They'd be a thorn in Trump's side during any conflict, even with one of them axis of evil nations because of Trump. They hate Trump and will go oppose anything he does.

Is it just me or is anyone else scratching their head that someone as DUMB as Brennan was the head of the CIA??? Where did he fall in the Progressive stack to get hired??

It had something to do with birds.

Swallows,to be exact.

African or European swallows?

Former CIA Director John Brennan's Security Clearance was never revoked. The existing deep-state operatives in the National Intelligence apparatus refused to follow the White House's orders!


Attorney General Barr says he's trying to comprehend the enormity of corruption within the Federal Intelligence and Law Enforcement agencies. But he is also determined to use all resources and tools necessary to clean house.

You have to understand, the Iranian deal was not Obama’s attempt to placate Iran; it was his attempt to placate Russia.

It’s what Obama was talking about on the phone with the Soviet premier when his hot mic picked up him saying he’d have more flexibility after the election...

By her own admission, Hillary was practically bankrupt when her husband’s term ended in 2000. Once she became sec of state, she funneled hundreds of millions from foreign governments into the Democrat party. The Swedish government alone donated $24 million to the Clinton foundation, while hillary was SOS, so Swedish firms could ignore sanctions and do business with Iran (guaranteeing the Swedes a monopoly, enforced by US navy ships..). Firms in other fields did the same thing; mostly our allies from France and Germany; but the Chinese and Russians were also allowed to “wet their beaks” in return for donations to the Clinton foundation.

So when trump ends the nuclear treaty with Iran, he’s ending the flow of cash into Clinton foundation (now DNC) coffers.

Brennan, as a Clinton whore, is there to strategize how to weaponize this state of affairs against trump and use it so congress will prevent trump from going to war—the DNC would lose all of its deals with Russia and other foreign governments if hostilities forced them to REALLY stop doing business with Tehran.

Russia wants trump to go to war with Iran; anything to jack up the price of crude oil. Unlike the US, Russian oil production is controlled by a “sovereign entity,” the state-controlled GAZPROM. Unlike the USA, the Russian government doesn’t get most of its revenue from taxes; Russia gets its budget directly from GAZPROM. Now that America has invented Fracking, oil price have been in a state of collapse and American corps have begun exporting oil, undercutting GAZPROM’s cost structure.

Russia’s goal in Venezuela is to keep Ven from producing oil, to keep prices up. Although Iran is one of russias only allies, an Iranian war would cause Russian profits to soar.

Brennan is going to help the democrats enforce their policy of appeasement, under the socialist idea that giving money and tech to our enemies makes them dependent upon us. Worked for Neville Chamberlain, right???
