Talk about obscure connections. Even the blogs I follow (forget the paid media, who are mostly paid to look the other way and, contra popular opinion, are very good…at what they are paid for), haven’t picked up on this:
Immediately prior to his death, Hastings had published a strong critique of the Obama administration titled “Why Democrats Love to Spy on Americans,” which exposed the party’s hypocrisy regarding some of the civil liberty overreaches they had criticized under Bush but embraced under Obama.San Diego 6 News reported that Hastings had been investigating CIA Director John Brennan for an upcoming exposé prior to the crash. (You can read the whole thing here but the quote I pulled is the story.)
Remember that Republicans and Democrats alike could have avoided Donald Trump if they had been willing to conduct a full investigation into Hastings’ suspicious death and follow it to to its logical conclusion.
Also, you can keep this one in your memory banks during the months to come as Brennan–just hired by MSNBC/NBC to provide cover for the Security State and, of course, keep their “news” operation in order–is hailed as a champion of Liberty.
I paid a little tribute to Hastings here. There are no more of his kind around, but you’ll know the CIA is back on top when they knock off some reporter who’s been as openly critical of Trump as Hastings purportedly was of Obama in the shadows and blame it on the current administration.
Bet CNN won’t turn their back on that one.
Take it Gene….
