The Washington Post is signaling that it has the CIA on its side against Donald Trump. And they’re making it very clear that they are on its side against the American people and their electoral process in a potential coup d’etat. That sounds like some conspiratorial banana republic nonsense, because it is. WaPo has deep ties to the (((deep state))), and it’s not going to wait for Trump to blunder before it gets busy working to depose him by any means necessary.
WaPo’s David Nakamura, a card-carrying CFR member, is kvetching that “Trump, CIA on collision course over Russia’s role in U.S. election.”
The simmering distrust between Donald Trump and U.S. intelligence agencies escalated into open antagonism Saturday after the president-elect mocked a CIA report that Russian operatives had intervened in the U.S. presidential election to help him win.
The growing tensions set up a potential showdown between Trump and the nation’s top intelligence officials during what some of those officials describe as the most complex threat environment in decades.
Their “fake news” unsubstantiated rumor that the intelligence community has evidence that Russia hacked and released Podesta’s emails in an attempt to influence the American election is their proof that our precious and pristine democratic process has been influenced by foreign governments. Of course, we don’t need Washington Whispers to tell us that other governments actively interfere in our elections. The Israeli government openly discusses its interference in our elections while the candidates (including Trump) publicly and privately meet with AIPAC, Sheldon Adelson, and lord knows how many agents of other foreign governments.
The CIA certainly doesn’t mind foreign governments interfering in our political process when those foreign governments are Israel- and NATO-aligned. They don’t appear to mind much other than anti-globalism and occupational accountability. The CIA has nobody to blame but themselves for terrible priorities, bungling tradecraft, and flawed analysis. If there’s one thing Trump’s famous for, it’s holding people accountable who suck at their jobs. And if there’s on thing the CIA is famous for, it’s sucking at their job.
On Friday, members of Trump’s transition team dismissed the CIA’s assessments about Iraq’s stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.
Should he not dismiss the CIA’s assessments about Iraq’s stockpile of weapons of mass destruction? In theory, this shouldn’t even be a thing. What kind of banana republic buffoonery is it for the intelligence community to be opposing and obstructing the President Elect in this manner, invoking public grumblings about whether the intelligence community will work with or against the incoming administration?
U.S. intelligence officials described mounting concern and confusion about how to proceed in an administration so openly hostile to their function and role. “I don’t know what the end game is here,” a senior U.S. intelligence official said. “After Jan. 20,” the official said, referring to Inauguration Day, “we’re in uncharted territory.”
Here’s a hint: You shut up and do what your boss tells you to do or you’re fired!
And even if their story is fully legit, with Putin standing over Ed Snowden’s shoulder, instructing him to forward Hillary’s emails to Assange while instructing him to archive Trump’s emails for blackmail against their selected administration, the intelligence community has nobody to blame but themselves for the outcome. They have no choice but to roll with the situation. We can’t just call another election or install the other candidate who lost. There’s really little firm evidence that the leaked emails had a major impact, perhaps on par with her Wall Street “open borders” speech or the damning impact of having Lena Dunham campaign for her.
the CIA protesting a right wing president being installed by a foreign power might be the funniest thing that has ever happened

Unfortunately, we do have to take the implied threat that WaPo and the CIA will team up to depose an American president they don’t like because it wouldn’t be the first time they did precisely that.
Pillar added: “Everything Trump has indicated with regard to his character and tendencies for vindictiveness might be worse” than former president Richard Nixon, who also had a dysfunctional relationship with the intelligence community.
The “intelligence” community is dreadfully behind on the democratization of technology and its seismically decentralizing impact on information dissemination. If they try to party like 1974, they’re going to have a bad time. Back when they instigated the coup against Nixon, the mainstream media cartel was at its height, completely in control of the narrative, and capable of firmly instructing the masses on what is and is not news, what is and isn’t on the table, and what is and isn’t going to happen. We, the American people, have our own original researchers, media outlets, and infotainment talent now, and we picked Trump, fair and square.
In a statement, Trump suggested that the CIA had discredited itself over faulty intelligence assessments about Iraq’s weapons stockpile more than a dozen years ago.
“These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction,” he said.
The belittling response alarmed people in the intelligence community, which already had questioned Trump’s temperament and lack of national security experience.
Was he wrong? Perhaps they deserve praise? These people also failed to anticipate the rise of ISIS. Their own story (the more charitable one) is that they went on for years funneling weapons and money to ISIS because they had been duped by bullshit “moderate rebel” decoys. Our intelligence community is a cucked and compromised shitshow that still believes White Nationalism is one big nineties militia documentary, still believes that the “moderate” rebels are worthy of more funding and support even as the last of them are being rounded up in Aleppo as we speak, and found out most of the major international political events from the same cable news we did.
The CIA is operating a covert program to arm and train moderate rebels in Syria to overcome the brutal rule of President Bashar al-Assad, even as Trump has praised Russia’s approach to backing Assad.
“I see the danger of a lasting dysfunctional relationship based on the president-elect’s perception that he is being wronged by the intelligence community,” Pillar said.
This won’t be one of these things that just simmers. One or the other will have to go. And if Trump believes, as Nixon did, that his fawning support for Jews, overt support for keystone Jewish interests, and inclusion of Jews in his family and administration will buy him any slack, he’s mistaken. The Jewish elites who have a stranglehold on our intelligence community, our foreign policy, and our political system won’t settle for a dominant gentile who respects their interests on balance with those of the American people. They will attempt to destroy every gentile who won’t be dominated.
It’s reaching sunset for the Jewish oligarchs, though. Technological and demographic changes are radically transforming the world in ways that they’re not prepared to respond effectively to. Even if they do manage to defeat Trump, that will only serve to accelerate the rapid awakening and radicalization which is underway. What we’re seeing with the Washington Post and the CIA taking their feud public is nothing short of an unraveling and ungluing of the control they once took for granted.
