In major flip flop, Democrats have become big fans of the CIA. For decades Democrats led the charge against intelligence agency coups, mind control programs, media infiltration, and overseas election meddling, but Hillary's embarrassing election loss has apparently made them CIA lovers-NBC News, Jan. 4, 2017

NBC News-WSJ poll through 2016

"Never mind decades of coups, mind-control programs, media infiltration, faulty intelligence and overseas election meddling, all it took was an embarrassing loss from Hillary Clinton to spark a furious love affair between Democrats and the CIA. It appears unaccountable intelligence agency worship is suddenly a “liberal” position. Who knew! 

The following poll was taken two months ago, but many of you probably missed it back then. The shift is simply mind-boggling."

1/4/17, "Democrats Now Give the CIA Higher Marks than Republicans Do. That’s a Really Big Shift," NBC News, Carrie Dann 

"The past two decades have shown significant fluctuation in how Republicans and Democrats view the agency, according to polling conducted by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal. 

And for the first time since the survey asked about the CIA back in 2002, Democrats now have a more positive view of the nation's foreign intelligence agency than Republicans do....
That's a particularly significant reversal for a party that has typically led the charge against intelligence agency overreach.

In 1975, for example, a special Senate panel led by Democrat Frank Church investigated the CIA and other intelligence agencies, probing the legality of assassination attempts of foreign leaders, domestic surveillance practices and the monitoring of political activities by American citizens.... 

After the successful operation to kill 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden in 2011, views of the CIA soared among both parties, offering a rare moment of partisan agreement about the merits of the organization. 

But by 2014, a divide again persisted, with Democrats giving the agency a characteristic thumbs down again."

 "As I’ve been saying all year, the Democratic Party as it exists today doesn’t stand for anything other than identity politics, CIA worship and Russia conspiracy theories. Not only is the party not capable of productive opposition to Trump, it’s become increasingly harmful to public debate."
