(National Sentinel) Unhinged: The primary reason why it’s impossible for us to watch CNN is that you can’t tell anymore what the network’s “experts” are supposed to be — noted experts in their field or professional jerks.
Take one Phil Mudd, Mr. Intelligence Expert for the network. He became so unhinged during a Friday discussion of POTUS Donald Trump’s revocation of Obama CIA hack John Brennan’s security clearance that he tried to throw a Republican strategist off the show — but it wasn’t his program, mind you.
That’s because when unhinged Leftists cannot argue an issue on the facts or merits, they shift to faux outrage, anger, name-calling, etc., as Mudd beautifully demonstrates.
GOP strategist Paris Dennard was berated by Mudd when the latter couldn’t address in a sensible, believable and convincing way what the former was saying.
“A lot of these people that have these security clearances, and this is the secret in swampy Washington, D.C., they have them and they keep them because it’s profitable for them after they leave government,” Dennard stated.
“Because if you have a security clearance, especially high-level security clearances, your contracts and your consulting gig pay you a lot more money because of the access that you have,” he added.
Que the faux outrage.
“When I am requested to sit on an advisory board, let me ask you one question, how much do you think I’m paid to do that at the request of the U.S. Government? Give me one answer, and you’ve got ten seconds? How much?” he demanded to know.
Mind you, Dennard did not mention Mudd specifically, so the intimation by him that he was somehow lumped into the entire group of for-profit cleared consultants is a straw man argument.
Also, a Dennard repeatedly stated, he wasn’t talking about consulting with current government officials, which is a) done all the time, as even The Washington Post noted; and b) is not done in a private-sector, for-pay status.
And let’s not forget the fact that Mudd is being paid by CNN to be — wait for it — an intelligence analyst, while holding a — wait for it — security clearance. Maybe he’s not getting paid by anyone else to be an intelligence consultant because he’s more of a hack than an analyst, with his mind infected by Left-wing groupthink (which is not analysis).
Watch (and try not to yell at your computer screen):
What is that old expression about he who doth protest too much?
Phil Mudd, like most other far-Left ‘experts’ on the other establishment media networks, is completely unhinged and unbalanced, as is obvious — and this isn’t his first display of Trump Derangement Syndrome and lunacy.
Hey Phil, you should know that debates aren’t won by those who shout the loudest. They’re won by those who factually, calmly, and systematically present fact-based analysis.
You should try that sometime.
