Now THAT is a campaign ad.

Valerie Plame, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative is running for Congress in New Mexico, and the new campaign ad she released on Monday quickly went viral on Twitter. Entitled “Undercover,” the 56-year-old mother of three drives shows off her CIA skills, impressively drives a Chevy Camaro backwards on empty desert road in New Mexico.

Images of former Vice-President Dick Cheney and his Chief-of-Staff, Scooter Libby. flash in the video, as Plame reminds viewers how Libby leaked her name out of revenge against her husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, and her name was subsequently published by Robert Novak in The Washington Post.

Wilson was outspoken in his conviction that the Bush administration’s claims of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq were false. Libby was convicted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges in 2007, and while President George W. Bush commuted Libby’s sentence, in 2018, President Trump pardoned him, which meant no one was punished for ousting her identity.

“You’ve probably heard my name,” Plame says in the ad, walking in slo-motion, hair blowing in the wind. “And Mr. President, I have a few scores to settle.”

While Plame performs a complete 180-turn in her Camaro she adds, “I’m running for Congress because we’re going backwards on national security, health care and women’s rights. We need to turn our country around,” she said. And yes, the CIA really does teach us how to drive like this.”

I am a huge fan of Valerie Plame’s and followed her story, reqd her book, and even watcehd the movie based on her outing. 

At that time this was the most egregious political attack I had ever witnessed happening in real-time. 

She was literally outed as a CIA agent to punish her husband for telling the truth about one of the main lies used to justify launching the Iraq war. 

If people had listened to Joe Wilson we could have saved thousands of lives, and perhaps a billion dollars or more in wasted taxpayer money. 

He was a hero and she is a fucking hero as well. 

If I lived in New Mexico I would not only vote for her but I would be working with her campaign already.

    Here is your annual reminder –

    Trump’s first thought on 9/11 was the height of his own building.

    He then LIED about helping out.

    He CLAIMED money for damage.

    He LIED about Muslims ‘dancing in celebration’ in New Jersey.

    “Another more likely possibility is that over the years the CIA has come to believe that the Russian secret services would not dare to carry out what are known in the trade as “wet works,” or assassinations, on U.S. soil. ”
    “The un-dead spy, by all accounts, was a highly valuable CIA asset. According to a source for CNN, which first broke the story, “there was ‘no equal alternative’ inside the Russian government, providing both insight and information on Putin.”
    “According to the New York Times: “The Moscow informant was instrumental to the CIA’s most explosive conclusion about Russia’s interference campaign: that President Vladimir V. Putin ordered and orchestrated it himself.”

    The news media began speculating about possible CIA assets highly placed in the Kremlin after U.S. intelligence officials released a declassified version of their assessment of Russia’s election interference in early January 2017.

    This was published, significantly, as a response to constant public criticism and doubts expressed by then-President-elect Donald Trump about the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment of the Russian influence operations that helped him get elected.

    It was also around this time that the Russians began hunting very aggressively for moles within their government and security services, who might have been passing information to the Americans.”

    “The worldwide rise of authoritarianism is a direct result of men’s profound unwillingness to share power with women”
    “the core values of liberal democracy, Beauchamp argues, which include “democracy, the rule of law, individual rights, and equality.”
    ” the major, objection that conservative thinkers have to liberal democracy: They hate the liberation of women.”

    “The entire system of communities, churches and especially families of yore, for which conservatives feel so much nostalgia, is at heart patriarchal. It’s a system that depends on putting women under the direct control of men — first fathers, then husbands — and extracting unpaid labor from them to keep the system running. It’s a system where men’s freedom is predicated on women’s entrapment, where men can run the world, secure in the knowledge that someone is at home making sure the dishes get done.”

    “The implication is clear: Men should be free to sexually exploit women, and women have a duty to protect men’s right to abuse by staying silent.”

    This is how Scarah Pee imagines herself in her own little warped bobble head. Not even close.

    Valerie, bag Congress and join the 2020 presidential run; you’d garner the most support. We need a competent fighter that won’t be intimidated by the old white men.
