Letter: CIA Director Brennan’s stand on individuals’ rights questioned

Will Brennan honor rights?

Recently, John Brennan was sworn in as CIA Director in a private ceremony conducted by Vice President Joe Biden. Foregoing the traditional swearing-in format, Brennan chose instead of hand on a Bible, a hand on an original draft of the Constitution, one that didn’t include the Bill of Rights (the first 10 amendments to the Constitution). Recall that in confirmation hearings, Brennan came under fire for refusing to answer questions on our individual liberties enshrined in the Bill of Rights and ratified in 1791, four years after the original draft of the Constitution.

In other words, Brennan’s swearing-in as CIA director leaves us assuming he is not sworn to uphold our liberties as codified in the Bill of Rights. These include freedom of speech and religion, right to bear arms, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, and right to a speedy public trial. We shall see if this new progressive Obama appointment joins the progressive collusion by oiling the slippery slope current and previous administrations seem to have mapped out for our gradual loss of liberties, loss of national sovereignty, and progression to a complete socialist society, where government is of the regime, by the regime and for the regime.

Progressives, with a motto of hope and change, have led us here. Of the influence of Communism on the Progressive party, Wikipedia quotes historian Schapsmeier: “… the party organization was controlled from the outset by those representing the radical left ... This made it extremely easy for Communists … to infiltrate into important positions within the party machinery. Campaign literature, speech materials, and campaign slogans sounded strangely like echoes of what Moscow wanted to hear.”

Before naysayers respond, first study the Constitution and Bill of Rights; then research our shadow government, The Council on Foreign Relations.
