Understanding Why the Deep State Had to Take Down General Michael Flynn

Does the American public really understand what happened to Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn?  Highlights of the case have been thoroughly exploited by the shallow, left-leaning media as a convenient avenue to attack President Trump.  But important elements of the story remain largely buried from public view.

The tragic political demise of this distinguished general who was President Trump’s initial national security adviser, one of the key jobs in the White House, has been well documented.  Former FBI director James Comey and the now disgraced upper echelon of the FBI and, subsequently, Special Counsel Robert Mueller maliciously trapped him, resulting in his ultimate prosecution and pleading guilty to lying to the FBI.  Not only did Flynn lose an important and influential job in the White House, but they also bankrupted him with legal fees; threatened his family; and, worst of all, damaged the good name of a highly decorated military professional who served his country honorably and with distinction as a member of the American Intelligence Community.

The despicable and unethical attack on Flynn immediately after his appointment by Trump was just one element of a shameful Deep State campaign to discredit and destroy the Trump presidency.  As Trump’s national security adviser, Flynn had Trump’s ear.  He was potentially the Deep State’s worst nightmare.  Flynn knows in detail how the Intelligence Community and the FISA courts operate.  With a 33-year military career, including heading up the Defense Intelligence Agency, Flynn was an existential threat to outgoing President Obama and his shameless and highly partisan CIA director, John Brennan, who cynically and criminally corrupted the Intelligence Community for political purposes on behalf of Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The Conservative Tree House linked Flynn’s fall from grace to his knowledge of what happened in Benghazi.  Flynn knew how they lied and covered up the disaster that cost four American lives, including an ambassador’s.

Behind the attack-motive was the much bigger State Department and CIA problem with the U.S. Libyan weapons and the flow to Syria.  The U.S. sending weapons into the hands of al-Qaeda was always the larger risk to the Obama administration.  This problem started with Clinton (State) and Panetta (CIA at the time), but now those weapons going to Syria was an even bigger problem.  Flynn was not in place at the time (2010 – 2011).

There is yet another major element of Flynn’s fall from grace that, predictably, has been ignored by the politically correct, anti-Trump media.

In 2016, Flynn published his bookThe Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies.  That’s the last direction of policy that Barack Hussein Obama, Brennan (there is suggestive but unconfirmed evidence that Brennan is a converted Muslim), and their pro-Islamic allies wanted as a priority agenda of the new administration.

You will recall that Obama’s well established Muslim sympathies led him to pressure Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak into inviting the Muslim Brotherhood to attend his Cairo speech over Mubarak’s objections.  Obama later supported Muslim Brotherhood-backed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi until Morsi was overthrown by the Egyptian people with the help of the Egyptian military.  Who can forget Obama’s criticism at a prayer breakfast, where he never mentioned Islam, of what Crusaders did in the name of Christianity?

That’s the same Obama who, in his May 19, 2011 speech, called for Israel to be cut in two by connecting the Gaza strip, the Golan Heights, and the West Bank (emphasis added):

The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states. The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.

Recall that Flynn was dismissed by Obama as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in 2014, thus ending Flynn’s military career.  In his final interview as DIA director, Flynn said he felt like a lone voice in thinking that the United States was less safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism in 2014 than it was prior to the 9/11 attacks.  Flynn believed he was pushed into retirement for questioning the Obama administration’s public narrative that al-Qaeda was close to defeat.

Journalist Seymour Hersh wrote that Flynn told him his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings about “the dire consequences of toppling Syrian President Bashar Assad.”  Flynn recounted that his agency was producing intelligence reports indicating that radical Islamists were the main force in the Syrian insurgency and “that Turkey was looking the other way when it came to the growth of the Islamic State inside Syria.”  Flynn reportedly said the reports “got enormous pushback from the Obama administration,” who he felt “did not want to hear the truth.”  According to former DIA official W. Patrick Lang: “Flynn incurred the wrath of the White House by insisting on telling the truth about Syria … they shoved him out.  He wouldn’t shut up.”

In addition to Trump’s appointment of Flynn as national security adviser, Trump had also named Sebastian Gorka as a deputy assistant.  Gorka washed out of the Trump administration in a few short months after accusations from the Deep State and academia that he was a fringe academic with questionable credentials.  It’s no coincidence that Gorka, an internationally prominent and highly respected authority on counterterrorism, had published a book with a similar theme to Flynn’s: Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War.

Flynn and Gorka represented the first time senior government officials at the White House level were willing and able to enunciate and lead America’s war against radical Islam.  The globalists were horrified at the idea of this sort of thinking at the White House level, which some claimed could offend or alienate America’s Muslim allies, particularly Saudi Arabia, which has been a primary funder and enabler of Wahhabism, a fundamentalist and militant sect of Islam.  (Of the 19 9/11 hijackers, 15 were from Saudi Arabia.)

In his book, Flynn is highly critical of past U.S. policy in the Middle East, particularly regarding Iran, a principal supporter of Islamic terrorism.  Flynn believes that the invasion of Iraq was a major error.  The focus, he believes, should have been on Iran.  He slams Obama for not supporting the Green Revolution of the Iranian people in 2009, when there was a chance to topple the mullahs from inside the country.  It didn’t happen because, Flynn wrote:

[N]othing of the sort will be undertaken by Obama because this president wants to be remembered as the man who embraced the Islamic Republic, not as the American leader who brought it down. (page 176)

Flynn calls for strengthening America’s relationships with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt.  He notes that Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi saved Egypt from the clutches of the Muslim Brotherhood, and both Egypt and Jordan have been at peace with Israel.

He underscores Israel’s importance to America, particularly in terms of intelligence about radical Islam.

Of the many mistakes of the Obama presidency, its open hostility to Israel is one of the most damaging to our national security.  I find it simply incredible that an American president should believe a strategic alliance with Iran to be more attractive than our traditional embrace of Israel. … [W]e need Israel if we’re going to defeat the radical Islamists, and above all, the Iranians.

It’s quite clear why the Islam-loving Obama and Brennan did not want Flynn at the right hand of the new president.  Not only were their crimes likely to be brought public, but also, their primary pro-Islamic thrust in the Middle East would be reversed.

Here’s the core of Flynn’s thinking:

We have heard [Muslims] say, “We love death more than you love life” over and over again and we have heard them chant “death to America.”  Yet it does not seem that our leaders, and perhaps, most of our people, are sufficiently against the barbarians who act in this way.  Political correctness forbids us to denounce radicalized Islamists, and our political, opinion and academic elites dismiss out of hand the very idea of waging war against them.  No wonder we’re losing.  They’ve gotten a free ride. (page 157)

What to do?  “We’ve got to get inside the minds of the Jihadis.  We should have done that a long time ago, because their goal has been clear for nearly half a century.”

Flynn cites the incident of a PLO jihadist who shot to death the Jordanian prime minister on November 28, 1971.  “As he lay dying, one of his killers bent over and lapped the blood that poured from his wounds.”

Flynn thus asks the obvious question, which still has not been answered by the pro-Islamic forces in America: “Do you want to be ruled by men who eagerly drink the blood of their dying enemies?”

No One Mentions That The Russian Trail Leads To Democratic Lobbyists

K Street lobbyists are the symbol of Washington influence-peddling as they push government for favors, subsidies, exemptions, and other special treatment for their clients. Their customers include, in addition to domestic clients, foreign governments, oligarchs, fugitive speculators, and a rogue’s gallery of questionable figures. Washington lobbyists trade on their access to power. Many are former administration officials or members of Congress. If Trump fulfills his promise to “drain the swamp,” these influence peddlers would have nothing to sell. They are under attack.

The media has focused not on K Street but on the Russian ties of President Donald Trump’s associates. They list the reprehensible Kremlin-associated figures for whom members of his inner circle worked, the most notorious being Viktor Yanukovich, the deposed president of Ukraine, and fugitive oligarch, Dymtro Firtash. But both of these “repulsive” figures were also advised by Democratic top dogs, who likely earned large multiples of what the “small fry” Trump associates took home.

In pushing its Manchurian-candidate-Trump narrative, the media fail to mention the much deeper ties of Democratic lobbyists to Russia. Don’t worry, the media seems to say: Even though they are representing Russia, the lobbyists are good upstanding citizens, not like the Trump people. They can be trusted with such delicate matters.

The media targeted former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort, for consulting for deposed Ukrainian president’s (Yanukovich’s) Party of the Regions. He also worked for billionaire oligarch, Firtash, who stands accused of skimming billions in the Ukraine gas trade in league with Russian oligarchs. The media also singled out Trump’s former national security advisor, General Michael Flynn, for attending a dinner with Putin and appearing on Russia’s foreign propaganda network RT. Trump’s own Russian ties were the subject of intense media coverage of an unverified opposition-research reportpurportedly prepared by an ex-British spy, who remains in hiding. It seems no enterprising reporter has tried to find him.

The media’s focus on Trump’s Russian connections ignores the much more extensive and lucrative business relationships of top Democrats with Kremlin-associated oligarchs and companies. Thanks to the Panama Papers, we know that the Podesta Group (founded by John Podesta’s brother, Tony) lobbied for Russia’s largest bank, Sberbank. “Sberbank is the Kremlin, they don’t do anything major without Putin’s go-ahead, and they don’t tell him ‘no’ either,” explained a retired senior U.S. intelligence official. According to a Reuters report, Tony Podesta was “among the high-profile lobbyists registered to represent organizations backing Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.” Among these was the European Center, which paid Podesta $900,000 for his lobbying.

That’s not all: The busy Podesta Group also represented Uranium One, a uranium company acquired by the Russian government which received approval from Hillary Clinton’s State Department to mine for uranium in the U.S. and gave Russia twenty percent control of US uranium. The New York Times reported Uranium One’s chairman, Frank Guistra, made significant donations to the Clinton Foundation, and Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for one speech from a Russian investment bank that has “links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”  Notably, Frank Giustra, the Clinton Foundation’s largest and most controversial donor, does not appear anywhere in Clinton’s “non-private” emails. It is possible that the emails of such key donors were automatically scrubbed to protect the Clinton Foundation.

Let’s not leave out fugitive Ukrainian oligarch, Dymtro Firtash. He is represented by Democratic heavyweight lawyer, Lanny Davis, who accusedTrump of “inviting Putin to commit espionage” (Trump’s quip: If Putin has Hillary’s emails, release them) but denies all wrongdoing by Hillary.

That’s still not all: Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.) read Kremlin propagandainto the Congressional Record, referring to Ukrainian militia as “repulsive Neo Nazis” in denying Ukrainian forces ManPad weapons. Conyers floor speech was surely a notable success of some Kremlin lobbyist.

Lobbying for Russia is a bi-partisan activity. Gazprombank GPB, a subsidiary of Russia’s third largest bank, Gazprombank, is represented by former Sen. John Breaux, (D., La.), and former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R., Miss.), as main lobbyists on “banking laws and regulations, including applicable sanctions.” The Breaux-Lott client is currently in the Treasury Department list of Russian firms prohibited from debt financing with U.S. banks.

In his February 16 press conference, President Trump declared in response to the intensifying media drumbeat on his Russian connections: “I haven’t done anything for Russia.” K-Street lobbyists, on the other hand, have done a lot to help Russia. They greased the skids for a strategic deal (that required the Secretary of State’s approval) that multiplied the Kremlin’s command of world uranium supplies. They likely prevented the shipment of strategic weapons needed by Ukraine to repulse well-armed pro-Russian forces. A fugitive billionaire who robbed the Ukrainian people of billions is represented by one of the establishment’s most connected lawyers.

Gazprombank GPB hired Breux and Lott to gain repeal of sanctions. That’s perfectly fine in Washington; they are playing according established “swamp rules” in their tailored suits and fine D.C. restaurants. General Flynn lost his job when the subject of sanctions was mentioned by the Russian ambassador in their telephone conversation, but that’s the way the media and Washington play.

No wonder that Trump’s’ “drain the swamp” and anti-media messages resonate so well with mainstream America.

The Coup Against Trump Has Failed — Is the Worm About to Turn?

President Donald Trump, Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017 (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

It is now obvious that for two and a half years, Democrats and their friends in the deep state have been peddling an elaborate hoax: the spurious charge that President Trump conspired or colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 election.

The entire enterprise from the beginning was always about defeating Trump — either by planting smears in the media in 2016 to prevent his election or if that didn’t succeed, by doubling down on the investigation in an effort to keep the president from uncovering their election-year espionage malfeasance.

But the honey-badger president didn’t care and said he did nuthin’ wrong and didn’t try to stop it. So the “rigged investigation” led by “13 angry Democrats”lumbered on for nearly two years, racking up several process crimes and unrelated financial crimes in the process — all  while trying the nation’s patience.

Then The New York Times’ “bombshell” report last Friday confirmed that the FBI’s case against the president was scandalously flimsy. 

Trump’s former attorney John Dowd told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on his radio show Monday that he believes the president was facing a “coup” and accused Mueller, former FBI Director James “Cardinal” Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe of conspiring against the president.

“Little did I know that it appears that they were all in it together,” Dowd said. “I mean Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, McCabe, the whole crowd and they were out to get this president no matter what. I don’t think they sincerely believed anything about Russia.”

“This is our worst nightmare that someone with that kind of power would then decide to go after the president. I mean, it’s a coup,” Dowd added. “That’s what it is — an attempted coup by Comey and his crowd. And the evidence is all over there. I take the New York Times article as an admission of their bad behavior.”

SPONSORED

Dowd isn’t alone.

Most people, except a few paid trolls and Democrats with political axes to grind, have figured out there is no “there” there. Mueller is reportedly preparing to show his hand, and it’s almost certain to be “anti-climatic,” sources close to the investigation say.

It’s all over but the crying.

And liberal tears will indeed flow if Mueller’s final report comes out and it contains no bombshells and is unable to prove that President Trump colluded, conspired, schemed, or plotted with the Russians to win the 2016 election. It’s also unlikely that he’ll be accused of obstruction for firing Comey, an absurdly weak pretext for an investigation if ever there was one.

If instead of Russian collusion all that comes out of this is a crummy FEC violation related to hush-money payments to Trump’s former mistresses, Democrats will be very disappointed.

And any Democrat-led effort in the House to impeach the president over something he did years before he was elected that is unrelated to Russia collusion will only enrage his base and provoke a massive backlash against Democrats at the polls in 2020.

WATCH OUR TRENDING VIDEOS

Meanwhile, the inspector general’s investigation looking into the deep state’s surveillance abuse before the election continues apace, and a secret grand jury has been investigating former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for months. The OIG revealed last monththat it was unable to recover a number of vital Strzok/Page text messages from the special counsel’s office because Mueller’s records officer had scrubbed them. That almost looked like a warning shot from the OIG to the special counsel.

Then there’s U.S. Attorney John Huber, the sheriff who never quite rode into town.He’s supposedly investigating the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, but so far he doesn’t seem to have accomplished much.

The reason for that could be that Huber is waiting for DOJ Inspector General Horowitz to finish his lines of inquiry to avoid overlap.

The president himself may be holding the ace in the hole. He can order that the remaining damning FISA documents be unredacted and released so the public can see the FBI’s surveillance abuse for themselves. Trump over the weekend suggested that he is waiting until just the right moment to drop the FISA bomb and hinted that some of the miscreants involved in the SpyGate scandal are going down.

“People are being exposed by this that are totally corrupt,” he told Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday. “A lot of the people that don’t get mentioned even in that article today, the phony article in The New York Times, there’s a lot of corruption, and we’re exposing it. And I’m going to put that down someday as one of my greatest achievements.”
