SPOOKS TURN ON EACH OTHER=> Clapper Throws Brennan Under the Bus – “John and His Rhetoric Have Become an Issue” (VIDEO)
by Cristina Laila, The Gateway Pundit:
On Sunday, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said John Brennan’s rhetoric is becoming an issue.
“John and his rhetoric have become an issue in and of itself,” Clapper said in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
James Clapper was responding to a NYT op-ed former CIA Director John Brennan penned a few days ago wherein he claimed Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.

From the moment candidate Donald Trump won the Republican nomination, the deck was stacked against him. He was a chicken, surrounded by wolves, and they were just waiting for the right moment to consume him. But they all underestimated him. Crazy as people believe Trump to be, he has prevailed in the face of overwhelming opposition.
Anyone who’s ever worked on a jigsaw puzzle knows that the process is tedious in the beginning. First, we place all the similar colored pieces in small groups, try various configurations and then we see how two groups might fit together and so on. At a certain point, the progress becomes faster until finally, a picture starts to emerge.

Here’s how I dealt with it, screenshots and all. And now you can have some fun at their expense, literally.
The first time I got this was over a year ago. I just now got it again. So it must be more common than I thought. It was super-scary the first time – fear is what they prey on. This time around, I took screenshots to document it.
You’re looking at a website, perhaps some news site – I was on Caixin Global to read about a bond default by a Chinese company — when suddenly an authoritative, insistent male voice of the type to be expected at a crisis center in the US hammered on me with dire warnings about my computer, while a new browser window popped up that looked like a Microsoft Windows screen with three dialogue boxes (click to enlarge):
New research from economist and author John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center reveals that Americans have been applying for permits to carry concealed weapons (CCW) in record numbers, especially among women.
According to Lott, there were 890,000 CCW permits issued in 2017, while 4.6 million have been issued between 2007 and 2018, according to official state records – meaning 2017 saw a jump of nearly 24% in one year.
“We have seen an increase from 4.6 million permits in 2007 to 17.25 million now, with the number increasing every year,” Lott – the author of the highly cited book More Guns, Less Crime told Fox News.
Watch Out California! 53 Major Earthquakes (Including A Magnitude 8.2) Just Hit The Ring Of Fire In A 24 Hour Period
by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Is something unusual starting to happen to the crust of our planet? The USGS defines any earthquake of at least magnitude 4.5 as “significant”, and there were 53 earthquakes that met that criteria along the Ring of Fire on Sunday alone. If you would like to verify that information for yourself, you can so do right here. Not too long ago, I wrote about how “Earth changes” seem to be accelerating all over the world, but even I was stunned by the ferocity of the seismic activity that we witnessed over the weekend. Because none of the earthquakes happened in the United States, the mainstream media almost entirely ignored this story, but that is a huge mistake. The entire west coast of the U.S. falls along the “Ring of Fire”, and experts assure us that it is only a matter of time before the seismic tension that is building up along the tectonic plates in that area is released.

CNN analyst Phil Mudd exploded during a segment on Friday after a conservative commentator expressed support for the Trump administration’s decision to revoke security clearances of former Obama officials who no longer work in the government and who have been accused of leaking information.
“A lot of these people that have these security clearances — and this is the secret in the swampy Washington, D.C. — they have them and they keep them because it’s profitable for them after they leave government,” Paris Dennard said. “Because if you have a security clearance, especially a high-level security clearance, your contracts and consulting gigs pay you a lot more money because of the access that you have.”
