Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President\’s \”Cabinet\” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

PrayFocusExecutiveJohn Brennan, Director, Central Intelligence Agency

John Owen Brennan was born in September 1955 in North Bergen, New Jersey. He attended the Immaculate Heart of Mary Elementary School and graduated from Saint Joseph of the Palisades High School in West New York, New Jersey, before enrolling at Fordham University. At Fordham he earned a B.A. in Political Science. He spent his junior year abroad learning Arabic and taking Middle Eastern studies courses at the American University in Cairo. He received an M.A. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin. He speaks Arabic fluently.

Brennan has 25 years with the Central Intelligence Agency, working as a Near East and South Asia analyst, as station chief in Saudi Arabia, and as director of the National Counterterrorism Center. He left government service to become CEO of a security consulting business, and served as Chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, an association of intelligence professionals.

President Obama nominated Brennan as Director of the CIA in January 2013. He was approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee in March. Despite a 13-hour filibuster by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Brennan was confirmed by the full Senate. When Obama security adviser John Brennan was sworn into office as chief of the Central Intelligence Agency on March 8, 2013, he put his hand not on a Bible, but on a copy of the Constitution – before it included the Bill of Rights.

Brennan is married to Kathy Pokluda Brennan and they have a son and twin daughters.

IN THE NEWS: The CIA Station Chief in Germany was asked to leave last week. German officials have been frustrated in their efforts to receive clarification from Washington since last summer, when it was reported that the National Security Agency had been monitoring the digital communications of millions of Germans. The government tamped down that uproar, but fury flared anew when it was revealed last fall that the N.S.A. had been monitoring Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cellphone. Although President Obama has offered assurances that the United States will no longer spy on Germany, two cases of suspected American espionage that have come to light in the past two weeks have sparked a fresh round of outrage. As is usual with intelligence matters, the United States Embassy had no comment on the expulsion request. But in a statement, the embassy also said it was essential to maintain close cooperation with the German government “in all areas.” John Brennan, the CIA’s director, has asked to brief key members of the US Congress on the matter, which threatens a new rupture between Washington and a close European ally. It was unclear if and when Mr. Brennan’s briefing to US lawmakers would take place. The CIA declined any comment on the matter.

PRAY FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION

President Obama has announced a series of climate change initiatives aimed at guarding the electricity supply, improving local planning for flooding, coastal erosion and storm damage, and better prediction of catastrophes.

Secretary of State John Kerry declared that international talks on Iran’s nuclear program have made substantial progress, laying the groundwork for extension of negotiations beyond the July 20 deadline as gaps still remain.

Pray for President Obama and his Cabinet members as they work on both domestic and international issues.
