Are we a police state? What was done to General Flynn is an egregious violation of the Espionage Act
There is no escape from this war. Do you want to be ruled by men who eagerly drink the blood of their dying enemies? Such questions are almost never asked. Yet if you read the publicly available ISIS documents on their intentions, there’s no doubt that they are dead set on taking us over and drinking our blood. — General Michael Flynn
The American Police State
Donald J. Trump is the only, and the last hope for America, and his recent press conference was superb. As such, I have supported him from the time he announced his candidacy. However, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t made some big mistakes.
The two men I totally trusted to guide him in the right direction were General Michael T. Flynn, and Senator Jeff B. Sessions. Trump stated that, “General Flynn is a wonderful man. I think he’s been treated very, very unfairly by the media – as I call it, the fake media, in many cases.”
Well then, why the hell did Trump let him resign, or even ask for his resignation? Even Rush Limbaugh spent days asking the same question, and I want to know why Trump didn’t say to him, “General, I know all these charges are false, we will weather this attack, now get back to work.”
Instead, Trump allowed the Obama deep state to derail one of his best men. As such, his administration should use the grand jury through Attorney General Jeff Sessions to subpoena the leakers and the news organizations who received these taped conversations and then rehire Flynn. There is obviously a slow-motion coup underway instigated by the US intelligence community.
Are we a police state? What was done to General Flynn is an egregious violation of the Espionage Act. There are so many acts of sedition, including what Obama is doing, and I want to know why they’re not being prosecuted.
The Obama Holdovers
This is a crime, Obama’s spies, holdovers who have not yet been replaced, but should immediately be ousted, taped a private citizen’s phone conversation (before he was sworn in as NSA Chief) and found Flynn had called the Russian Ambassador. Incoming administrations call foreign countries all the time, it’s part of their new job and not a crime. Even left of center Charles Krauthammer has said the same thing.
Flynn insisted that he crossed no lines in his telephone conversation with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. “If I did, believe me, the FBI would be down my throat, my clearances would be pulled. There were no lines crossed, and the leakers must be prosecuted.”
Flynn did nothing that should have required him to resign. There has not been anyone who has been charged with the 1799 Logan Act, and every new NSA appointee has readied himself and his president by speaking to leaders of foreign governments. Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private conversations monitored by the FBI or NSA gives the permanent state the power to destroy reputations from the cloak of anonymity. This is what police states do, and what Trump needs to stop immediately.
Lou Dobbs stated, “President Trump, in my opinion, must end tenure for federal workers, must purge the State Department, and bring both the State Department and our intelligence community under the control of this President. To not do so and not do so quickly will only create more opportunities for obstructionism and put in jeopardy the entire Trump agenda, if not Mr. Trump’s Presidency itself.
Former Ambassador John Bolton echoed Dobbs’ sentiments, “There’s no way to overcome those leaks without getting firm control of all the bureaucracies in question. You need to get your people out into the departments and agencies, you need to staff up in the White House.”
General Flynn’s Objectives
General Flynn wanted to get rid of the rotten intelligence, but the shadow government eliminated him instead. As I see it, our president got rid of a loyal employee and is keeping those who have already spoken against him, including Judge Gorsuch.
Trump took office only a month ago, after 18 months of the most vitriolic campaign against him by the left and many of the neo-con rightwing. The animosity against him has been intensified to such an extreme that he absolutely must go to war against these leaks. Talk means nothing, he has to stop it now, because if he capitulates, it will be over for America and for his presidency.
That nameless and faceless bureaucrats were able to take out a president’s national security adviser based on a campaign of innuendo without evidence should worry every American.
Even more worrisome, William Binney, a former top NSA official turned whistleblower, who is credited with being the architect of their surveillance program, declared without reservation that the National Security Agency (NSA) is “absolutely” monitoring, eavesdropping, and spying on the phone calls of President Trump.

Sean Spicer Press Briefing
White House press secretary Sean Spicer spent much of his Tuesday press briefing insisting that Michael Flynn resigned from his post as national security adviser Monday because of a “trust” issue, and not due to a legal problem. Link “There’s nothing that the general did that was a violation of any sort,” Spicer said. “What this came down to was a matter of trust.”
Really Sean? I highly doubt this, unless it came from one of the globalist insiders since Flynn has been a total loyalist from the very beginning. Who told you to say that?
Who is Responsible
General Flynn said in his book, “We’re in a world war against a messianic mass movement of evil people, most of them inspired by a totalitarian ideology, radical Islam, but we are not permitted to speak or write those two words, which is potentially fatal to our culture.”
And Obama and his minions are still angry over Hillary’s loss, so he and his people are doing everything they can to delegitimize Trump’s presidency. When Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, the community organizer has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. Link He is using the Alinsky plan to destroy Trump.
Can you say sedition? Or Treason? The leaks are the issue. It’s illegal to leak classified information. The responsible parties need to go to jail. Link This is laid right at the feet of former CIA Director, John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence, Jim Clapper. (Brennan actually voted for the Communist party in 1976). It was really obvious when Brennan was leading the charge with unfounded innuendos. And the Obama White House was directly involved before they left…especially Obama advisor Ben Rhodes. The Democrats are behind this and some of the Republicans are involved with the leaks as well.
The rogue weasels have struck. Terrified that Lieutenant General Michael T. Flynn would tear them out root and branch, they connived and colluded, anonymously of course, to leak highly-sensitive intelligence information to destroy Flynn before he could destroy them.
The talk within the tight-knit community of retired intelligence officers was that Flynn’s sacking was a result of intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council using a sophisticated “disinformation campaign” to create a crisis atmosphere. The former intel officers say the tactics hurled against Flynn over the last few months were the type of high profile hard-ball accusations previously reserved for top figures in enemy states, not for White House officials.
CIA Director, Mike Pompeo
Prior to Flynn’s departure, Pompeo recently rejected a request for an elite security clearance for Flynn’s Senior Director for Africa, Robin Townley, required for service on the National Security Council, when Townley had received this clearance previously.
He also recently stated on Fox News, that the CIA does not hide intelligence from the president, although the WSJ stated on February 16th, that U.S. intelligence officials have withheld sensitive intelligence from President Donald Trump, because they are concerned it could be leaked or compromised, according to current and former officials familiar with the matter.
Then, in an article of Cliff Kincaid’s in AIM, he states this about Pompeo:
In a newsworthy development that went mostly unreported here in the U.S., Trump’s new director of the CIA, former Rep. Mike Pompeo, traveled to Saudi Arabia to give a top Saudi official a CIA award for “counter-terrorism” named after a discredited former CIA director. The Saudi official was given the “George Tenet Medal” in recognition of his “excellent intelligence performance, in the domain of counter-terrorism and his unbound contribution to realize world security and peace.” Tenet is known for his embarrassing and false “slam dunk” comments about finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq before the U.S. invasion.
Pompeo’s tribute to the Saudi official, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, is astounding considering the evidence of the Saudi role in facilitating jihadist terrorism in Syria, a debacle that has helped to produce 500,000 dead and refugees streaming into Europe and the United States. Bin Nayef serves as Minister of Interior.
Rather than focus on Flynn, the media should be asking what Pompeo is doing paying tribute to a Saudi official whose regime is neck-deep in a conflict that has produced a major humanitarian catastrophe. And why is the CIA giving an award named after a director who failed in the intelligence mission of the agency he led?
Napolitano Speaks with Stuart Varney
Napolitano doesn’t believe anyone will ever be prosecuted for this as he believes it is the same people who leaked the nonsense about Donald Trump in a hotel in Moscow. He said they know how to leak, they are professional spies, they are professional leakers, their fingerprints appear nowhere.”
The Judge even asked, “Did Mike Flynn get fired for telling a white lie to Mike Pence? Absolutely not. He got fired because he was a threat to the intelligence community that he and President Trump are preparing to shake up.”
Napolitano names those entities, starting with the NSA, which he points out “has the ability to listen in real time to every conversation we have. The FBI, which has its own intelligence people, the Defense Department, which has its own intelligence people. Theoretically they all work for him and they are attacking him.”
In disbelief Varney says, “This is sabotage from inside the intelligence community of the Trump administration, to get rid of General Flynn, he was kind of scapegoated here, he was an easy target.” Judge Napolitano agrees with a series of “Yes” responses, noting that the actions are an attack on the President and that what we’ve seen to this point is a “pinprick.”
Varney notes that Trump is going to have to walk through a firestorm, with Napolitano agreeing and lamenting that he lost a valuable asset in General Flynn. He notes that Flynn, “as a former spy himself, knows these people, and he knows how they operate, and now he’s gone.” Link
General Flynn and Iran
In the wake of Flynn’s departure, the Washington Free Beacon cited several anonymous sources who suggested that there was a very specific reason that Flynn was targeted — his opposition to the Iran deal:
“It’s actually Ben Rhodes, and the Iranian mullahs who are celebrating today,” said one veteran foreign policy insider who is close to Flynn and the White House. “They know that the number one target is Iran … [and] they all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So, they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced.”
Flynn had been preparing to publicize many of the details about the nuclear deal that had been intentionally hidden by the Obama administration as part of its effort to garner support for the deal, these sources said.
Flynn is now “gone before anybody can see what happened” with these secret agreements, said the second insider close to Flynn and the White House.
Flynn, he concludes, was just the appetizer: the knives are now out for President Trump. The fake news media is in a feeding frenzy, including this attack on Kellyanne Conway and this bill of indictment of the Trump Administration from the Washington Post. The practical result of the decision will be to escalate attacks on the White House, not reduce them. The Establishment is a wounded beast fighting for its life. This is a take-no-prisoners, no-quarter-asked-or-given war.
Flynn and Fethullah Gulen Charter Schools
General Flynn became aware of the Fethullah Gulen charter schools, many of which are on US Air Force bases, through two researchers on same, one of them being NewsWithViews writer, Diane Kepus. Flynn had published an article in The Hill on Nov. 8th, 2016, warning that America’s dalliance with the messianic Turkish Islamist and alleged coup plotter Fethullah Gulen might undermine the country’s relationship with NATO, at a time when Russia was giving Turkey the full-court press.
Not only did Flynn propose to deep-six Gulen, a longstanding friend of the CIA, but he had blown the whistle on CIA incompetence in Syria. Flynn’s Defense Intelligence Agency produced a now-notorious 2012 report warning that chaos in Syria’s civil war enabled the rise of a new Caliphate movement, namely ISIS. For full background, see Brad Hoff’s July 2016 essay in Foreign Policy Journal. Flynn humiliated the bungling CIA and exposed the incompetence and deception of the Obama administration, and got fired for it.
David P. Goldman (aka Spengler), writing on PJ Media said, “Flynn is the one senior U.S. intelligence officer with the guts to blow the whistle on a series of catastrophic intelligence and operational failures. The available facts point to the conclusion that elements of the humiliated (and perhaps soon-to-be-unemployed) intelligence community is trying to exact vengeance against a principled and patriotic officer. When the Turkish smear against Flynn came out in November, I smelled a rat. The present affair stinks like a dumpster full of dead rats.”
Spy Community’s New Powers
And just who was taping the General? The answer, we know now, was the National Security Agency. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes (R-CA) is calling for the leakers, the nine-unnamed current and former officials cited by the Washington Post, to be jailed.” Link
The New York Times wrote that In Obama’s final days, he expanded the power of the NSA to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections. Obama’s new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the NSA may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws.

Is Trump’s Staff Loyal
According to the Huffington Post, Roger Stone, a former adviser and longtime friend to Trump, suggested Priebus also played a role in Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s recent split from the administration. He said he would like to see chief of staff, Reince Priebus, ousted from the White House immediately, claiming he is responsible for the extraordinary number of leaks plaguing the Trump administration.
Stone may be right as Gateway Pundit has reported that Katie Walsh, Deputy White House Chief of Staff is the leaker. What is not known is if this #NeverTrumper was taking orders from her boss, Priebus, or if she was doing this on her own.
However, I’m not sure Priebus is a problem. In the last two weeks, I’ve received numerous calls from Hoosiers who have told me they believe VP Pence is the big problem.
Some of the problems they have with Pence relate to his term as Governor of Indiana, but others come from recent revelations. They think he carries a bible in one hand and a knife in the other. So, let’s look at just a few of the complaints I’ve received.
According to this website, Mike Pence cheered Trump for not undoing Obama’s LBGT Executive Order for Christian evangelicals. Many are upset with this stance, and even more upset that Pence, who claims to be a fundamentalist Christian would go along with it. My stance is perhaps down the middle. I don’t believe we need all kinds of laws, but I do believe the Constitution covers every American citizen, and that includes the LBGT community. Trump made this clear after the Orlando murders of 50 gay people. He was against this before he was for it. Link
- In Indiana, Pence presided over the withdrawal from Common Core, yet he quickly turned this triumph into a charade. Instead of returning to Indiana’s superb pre–Common Core standards, Pence stacked the replacement committees to ensure the return of Common Core. Indiana’s new standards are nothing but a slightly mangled and rebranded version of what they supposedly replace.
Common Core opponents are deeply disappointed by this outcome. The plucky Indiana mothers who ignited the national rebellion against Common Core are wondering why Governor Pence seems to have betrayed their trust.
So, in other words, Pence took credit for repealing Common Core in Indiana when in fact he merely replaced it with a rebranded version of the same standards — nay, standards that might be even worse: Link
- Pence’s votes while in Congress were not good and he only received a 62% freedom index. Link
- Pence initially supported Sen. Ted Cruz. Link
- Pence stated, “Trade means jobs but trade also means security. The time has come for all of us to urge the swift adoption of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.” Link
- “Calls to ban Muslims from entering the US are offensive and unconstitutional.”
Pence has strongly denounced Trump’s proposal last December to close the US borders to Muslims. Link
There were several who mentioned Pence’s disloyalties prior to the election, stating he pulled his name from the governor’s race in Indiana before Trump had a chance to announce him.
One Indiana friend said that she was disappointed that Pence went against Trump when the edited video of Trump’s locker room talk came out, as though Pence was so pure that he never slipped up with trash talk.
Another pointed out that Pence’s endorsement of Paul Ryan, John McCain, and other leftist Republicans prior to Trump’s forced endorsement, was uncalled for.
So, is there friction in the home court? I don’t know, I’m just reporting what I’ve been told in numerous phone conversations, with people who love Trump and are very upset and discouraged.
Remember that when Flynn was attacked in the media for his ties to Russia, he was not allowed by the White House to defend himself. He was instructed not to speak to the press when he was in the fight for his political life. His staff was not even allowed to review the transcripts of his call to the Russian ambassador. Why? And who ordered it?
The background here is important. Three people once affiliated with Trump’s presidential campaign — Carter Page, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone — are being investigated by the FBI and the intelligence community for their contacts with the Russian government. This is part of a wider inquiry into Russia’s role in hacking and distributing emails of leading Democrats before the election.
All of it is fake news!
There is no Russian conspiracy, yet the open hatred, hostility and contempt of the hard left and the Democratic Socialists, financed largely by evil anti-Semite atheist George Soros, has declared war on our Republic, with plans of total destruction and the rise of national socialism. And they constantly repeat the Russian lie.
Nazi Joseph Goebbels said, “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.”
Pray for our president. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12.
