Interview Brad Johnson Trump’s IC Picks, Turkey and Muslim Brotherhood connection, and Intelligence reform on America Daily 5 months ago Brad Johnson [Music] 00:04 hi so today we have Brad Johnson on a 00:07 show he’s a favorite of ours he is the 00:08 president for Americans for intelligence 00:11 reform Thank You Brad for joining us a 00:13 pleasure thank you so the first question 00:15 we wanted to talk to you about is when 00:17 an article you put out where you were 00:18 discussing president Trump’s new pick 00:21 for the DNI which is a Radcliffe I 00:24 believe correct John Radcliffe a 00:26 congressman from Texas who I think is a 00:30 superb pick I know there has been some 00:32 consternation over him as a selection 00:35 but I think people don’t understand the 00:37 full depth of what’s going on with this 00:39 move and and let me say now John 00:42 Radcliffe I think is is a superb pick 00:44 and let me say why now the critics of 00:47 him are saying that he just does not 00:49 have that background in intelligence but 00:51 there’s been a lot of people that have 00:53 had some background intelligence that 00:55 haven’t done that good of a job exactly 00:56 he comes in and he’s the type of guy 00:59 that understands how the process works 01:01 but when he gets to those points where 01:04 he bumps up against something out of 01:07 intelligence specifically that he may or 01:09 may not understand well enough he’ll go 01:11 and confirm it he’s not such a prideful 01:13 person that he’s he’s so hesitant to go 01:16 say you know to person you know that he 01:19 trusts and knows who is an expert in 01:21 that stuff he’s not afraid to go to that 01:22 person and say hey look give me the give 01:24 me the lowdown on this how does it all 01:26 work 01:26 okay and so he’s that type of 01:27 personality so he’s going to come in and 01:30 is perfectly willing to go figure things 01:32 out and is not arrogant and going to 01:35 assume that he knows everything and make 01:36 snap decisions so he’s going to look at 01:39 all of this and the other part of it is 01:40 he understands how bloated DNI has 01:43 become the Office of the Director of 01:46 National Intelligence it was originally 01:48 intended to be maybe a hundred people or 01:50 50 or 60 people and suddenly it’s a cast 01:52 of thousands so he understands this 01:55 bloating and mission creep and all of 01:58 this that has gone on so he’s well 02:00 positioned and probably one of the best 02:03 picks that that’s out there that can 02:06 come in take control get it back to its 02:08 original purpose and make it an 02:09 effective organization versus this 02:12 bloated organization that we have now 02:13 plus we want someone who’s going to 02:16 maybe shake 02:17 – we want to see someone you know come 02:19 into these organizations and maybe look 02:21 at it from a different perspective 02:22 that’s another thing I like about him 02:24 so the other person we want to talk 02:26 about is president Trump’s pick for mark 02:28 Meadows what is your feeling on him 02:30 again mark Meadows out of the House of 02:33 Representatives a congressman and one of 02:35 the leaders in the freedom caucus so 02:38 conservative budget oriented and again 02:41 understands these processes that are out 02:44 there and how bloated so many of these 02:46 agencies have become mission creep and 02:48 overlap that I mentioned all the time or 02:51 in relation to this because that is such 02:53 a large part of our problem now also if 02:55 you take a close look at these two 02:57 individuals 02:58 I think the Trump administration has 03:01 made a very interesting turn and there’s 03:04 always a learning curve it’s one of the 03:05 things you observe with every president 03:07 when they become president the first 03:08 couple years or so are learning how to 03:10 do this job there’s no way to really 03:12 prepare to become president because it’s 03:14 a unique position so these people come 03:17 in as presidents and it takes him that 03:20 learning curve time to come up to stop 03:21 President Trump has now made that turn 03:24 he’s turned the corner on that 03:25 understands it no longer behind the 03:27 power curve on personnel issues and 03:29 we’re starting to see select people 03:31 being sent home let go new people coming 03:36 in for the first time over the next year 03:39 and immediately after elections we’re 03:42 going to see president Trump finally 03:44 bring in his own team and with this move 03:47 to the chief of staff and these new 03:49 people that we’re seeing come in are the 03:50 first step in that so anyone who is a 03:53 trump supporter has to understand how 03:56 important this is and how big of a 03:58 positive this is because that is what 04:01 has happened he’s figured it out he 04:02 knows that there’s a lot of people in 04:04 there stabbing him in the back he 04:05 understands that’s out of the 04:07 intelligence community – we’ve seen with 04:09 the testimony on the hill on how that 04:11 was done and who’s doing it and he’s 04:13 finally got this figured out he was 04:15 trusting and believed that once people 04:18 saw that he was genuinely interested in 04:21 doing the business of the nation in 04:23 doing what’s best for the United States 04:24 of America that they would join him he 04:27 now understands that that just ain’t 04:29 gonna 04:29 it’s not gonna happen you know so now he 04:32 understands he needs to bring his team 04:34 and what we’ve seen is the foundation 04:36 laid for that team and I this it’s I 04:39 can’t be possibly more pleased about the 04:42 turn of events there and we’re going to 04:43 see bigger changes yeah big changes take 04:46 place in personnel and we’ve already 04:48 seen out of NSC there were what 70 04:50 people sent back now a lot of people are 04:52 criticizing that saying they were fired 04:53 that again is a lie and a manipulation 04:55 of the facts no one there at NSC was 04:59 fired they all come from someplace else 05:01 NSA CIA FBI military they all come from 05:06 someplace else so when they leave in 05:07 Asik they go back to their parent agency 05:09 so all they did was go back to whatever 05:12 job they had to go back to eventually 05:13 anyway 05:14 yeah that’s all so so you said something 05:16 in this article that I read that you 05:18 wrote about how the IC has become 05:20 politicized I think most Americans don’t 05:22 understand that and I don’t know if you 05:24 could explain how or what that means 05:27 well there’s and this is one of the 05:29 initiatives that Americans for 05:31 intelligence reform we’re always working 05:32 on and that is to reform issues like 05:35 this so what has happened and the way 05:37 that this has all been taken over was 05:39 the the pipeline to leadership and the 05:42 hiring process so now I like to use the 05:45 FBI not because I want to pick on them 05:47 in particular but it’s just that they’re 05:48 an open organization and easier to use 05:51 as an example because there’s so much 05:53 information out there so for example a 05:55 hiring practice is now at the FBI 05:56 there’s a lot of questions about like do 05:59 you want to be a justice warrior well we 06:01 all know what that means that means are 06:02 you a liberal and so but that’s part of 06:05 the official hiring practice so those 06:06 are the types of people that they bring 06:08 in if you’re not a liberal now in the 06:10 halls of government in the intelligence 06:12 community basically have to keep your 06:14 head down your mouth shut 06:15 well that’s not what we need I feel like 06:17 that’s discrimination it is 06:19 discriminatory 06:19 I might conservatives are not a 06:21 protected class all below perhaps they 06:23 should be it is discriminatory yes it is 06:26 because basically it’s it’s a type of 06:28 good old boy network just playing come 06:31 come to life again 06:32 and so if you’re not part of that little 06:34 of the club or the clique then you don’t 06:36 move up and the way that this is 06:38 manipulated and this is government-wide 06:40 now 06:41 promotions are very carefully protected 06:44 so that under the EEO rules and all of 06:47 this anyone that can is protected but 06:49 there are certain things you have to do 06:50 in every one of these agencies to be 06:52 promoted 06:53 there are ticket punch responsibilities 06:56 that you have to have had as you go up 06:58 those become more difficult and more 07:01 rare the way that you get those items is 07:04 by the job you’re given and the way it’s 07:06 manipulated is who gets what job and if 07:09 you’re not in the old boy network that’s 07:11 not gonna you’re not going to get those 07:13 yeah that’s and you’re farmed out that 07:15 is how they’ve taken over the CIA the 07:17 FBI NSA State Department very long time 07:20 ago and this carries over into other 07:23 places Department of Education interior 07:24 all of these places have been taken over 07:26 the critical aspect of this from my 07:28 perspective is the intelligence 07:30 community that has to be cleaned out 07:33 because what happens is if you are so 07:35 strongly in a political bent what you do 07:38 is you filter the information through 07:40 this prism of your political beliefs 07:42 exactly and what we do not do then at 07:44 that point is take the very best 07:46 information and pass it on to 07:48 decision-makers and that gets people 07:51 killed it gets us in trouble it degrades 07:53 our national security and it’s supremely 07:56 important it has gotten so bad the IC 08:00 the intelligence community as a whole 08:01 the 17 agencies including the DNI who 08:05 heads this all up creates a document 08:08 every four years that comes out timed to 08:10 the new president so every four years 08:12 whenever a president is not graded this 08:13 document comes out it’s meant to look 08:15 five to 20 years out into the future 08:17 this past one that was done when Trump 08:19 got elected previously after the 2016 it 08:22 came out in early 2017 yeah there was 08:26 more in that report on global warming 08:29 than there was on terrorism I mean you 08:32 you have to look at the leadership of 08:35 the intelligence community and go you’re 08:37 all fired 08:38 this is idiocy you know first of all 08:40 just taking a look at on the face of it 08:43 of global warming it’s a silly thing 08:44 there is zero proof zero evidence that 08:47 global warming even exists 08:49 now they have models showing what 08:51 happens if the temperature goes up 08:52 outside of that there’s nothing and 08:54 that’s not proof of anything that’s 08:56 merely if it does go up what will it 08:57 look like and it’s a you know global 09:00 warming really should be called 09:02 terraforming that’s the actual 09:03 underlying word that was always used for 09:06 this concept and it’s been manipulated 09:08 for political reasons but there isn’t 09:10 anyone that knows how to terraform not 09:12 only isn’t there is there no existence 09:14 of a way to or or a program or a system 09:18 to terraform there’s not even any 09:19 theories of how to do it and the problem 09:22 are the amounts of gas is what we’re 09:24 calling greenhouse gases today that man 09:27 puts out into the atmosphere we’re 09:28 talking one millionth of a percent in 09:30 many cases of the amount that’s out 09:32 there and the gases that are in the 09:34 atmosphere naturally fluctuate by much 09:37 larger amounts than that for example you 09:38 could see a 10% fluctuation in the water 09:41 vapor in the air overnight and a 10% 09:44 fluctuation in that area where you’re 09:46 comparing it to one one millionth of a 09:48 percent of some gas that’s out there 09:50 that’s put out by man I mean there’s 09:52 just no way to separate those out the 09:53 fact is that the Sun is the single 09:56 largest factor period anyone that 09:58 doesn’t recognize that fact as what 10:00 heats up the earth is just you know they 10:03 live in an alternate bizarro universe 10:04 that’s just a plain fact so in the the 10:10 report that came out and Trump obviously 10:13 got that icy report what would you have 10:16 wanted to be in there what was missing 10:18 from that report that should have gone 10:19 to Trump when he first came into office 10:21 well a number of things one of them 10:23 needs to be who we recommend to be on 10:26 the reports for terrorist organizations 10:27 that’s a key missing factor and what 10:30 we’ve seen and this is based on some of 10:32 what happened during the Obama years 10:33 Muslim Brotherhood has been overlooked 10:35 it is a terrorist organization but there 10:38 are political problems out there right 10:39 now because the Muslim Brotherhood and 10:41 Turkey are working hand in glove they’re 10:44 essentially extensions of each other now 10:47 the strongman air daguan in in Turkey 10:49 and he has been named by the head of 10:52 Muslim Brotherhood to be the next leader 10:55 of Islam so he’s working to establish 10:58 the Neo Ottoman Empire 11:01 a new Ottoman Empire and so that’s what 11:03 he’s after that’s why you see him trying 11:06 to essentially invade lands in Syria and 11:08 take over areas because he wants to 11:10 expand that empire so this the Muslim 11:13 Brotherhood has been overlooked because 11:15 of all the politics laid in place by 11:16 Obama that is one of the things that 11:18 should have been addressed by this and 11:20 it has not been so the lone wolf issue 11:23 is something is very important to me 11:24 personally and it’s one of those things 11:25 at the end that the intelligence 11:27 community should be all over and are not 11:29 and it’s a deceptive practice on their 11:32 part that really irritates the the great 11:34 a or takes me a great deal else a nice 11:36 yeah and the the problem with that is is 11:40 essentially there’s no such thing as a 11:41 lone wolf lone wolves there is big 11:44 departments at Isis for example and 11:48 different terrorist groups al Qaeda 11:49 where all of they do is troll the 11:52 internet and these are highly trained 11:55 well-paid professionals who that’s how 11:58 they spend their time and what they’re 12:00 doing is constantly trolling the 12:01 internet looking for susceptible 12:03 individuals that are weak on in one form 12:06 or another they then recruit them online 12:09 trained them online and send them out to 12:12 do these acts many times they pre record 12:15 their suicide messages before that 12:17 appear later on but one of the things 12:20 they’re also trained to do is they erase 12:21 all tracks electronic tracks because 12:25 there’s different types of software and 12:28 apps that can be used and they erase 12:30 them all before they go out and do their 12:32 their terrorist act so the police come 12:35 in and look at this and go well we don’t 12:36 have any proof so therefore we don’t 12:39 know the motive so therefore this is a 12:41 lone wolf that is on the on the part of 12:44 law enforcement I don’t blame them 12:48 specifically because this is an 12:50 intelligence act and they’re in law 12:52 enforcement so their standard is to find 12:54 proof that they can use in court 12:57 unfortunately this isn’t that problem 12:59 and so we’re using the wrong tool 13:02 against the problem here exactly and 13:04 it’s an intelligence issue that needs to 13:06 be worked that way where you go in and 13:08 start tracking back but every one of 13:10 those lone Wolf’s was in contact was 13:12 spotted online they were recruited 13:15 online they were trained online and then 13:18 they covered their tracks that were 13:20 online and then they went out and did 13:22 the terrorist act that is what people 13:24 are calling lone wolf that is a 13:26 deceptive lie and part of what I’m 13:29 saying of how they cover up the truth 13:31 that’s important if the IC was on this 13:34 reporting the truth 13:35 then we would know what we need to do is 13:38 use our intelligence agencies and anyone 13:40 else that’s cooperating with us overseas 13:41 and go find those offices where these 13:45 guys are trying to recruit people online 13:47 and take them out yeah that is what we 13:50 now ship it down that’s not happening 13:52 because of politics and people are dying 13:55 as a result yeah this is BS and those 13:58 guys are completely a response this is 14:01 one of the things that we have to 14:02 correct that’s what was missing from the 14:03 report that Trump should have gotten 14:05 like I said they talked about global 14:07 warming did two or three to one compare 14:10 that terrorism yeah that’s just so 14:12 deeply irresponsible i president Trump 14:14 is beginning to figure this out but he 14:16 needs to fire the vast majority of 14:18 leadership and start over to get people 14:20 who are actually dedicated Patriots who 14:23 respect the Constitution United States 14:26 and understand what it is to have strong 14:29 national security and strong 14:30 intelligence and we don’t have it 14:32 [Music] English (auto-generated) Click for entire transcript Continue Reading Previous Arabic langauge media reporting 12-15 March By Barry WebbNext Brad Johnson on Turkey, Greece,
