Winning against a determined enemy requires a willingness to clearly define the threat and to work very hard to understand their passions, fears and beliefs. – The Field of Fight, Lt. General Michael T. Flynn
Michael T. Flynn knows more about Islamic terrorism than anyone in Trump’s cabinet. It is why we need him for our NSA Chief! The left knows it, and it is why they will use every tactic they can to derail his nomination, including the bogus claim that he promised a lifting of sanctions against Russia when he spoke with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador to the U.S.
General Flynn spent more than 33 years as an intelligence officer, and that will serve us well. He served as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Senior Military Intelligence Officer in the Department of Defense. Of all the military men in our President’s new administration, General Flynn knows more about the cunning and ability-to-adapt of the Islamic enemies of freedom than anyone else in Trump’s administration. His book, The Field of Fight, should be read by every patriotic American. Get it, and read it, only 180 high powered packed intel pages! It is why we desperately need this man.
The Bogus Attack Against Flynn
At issue is whether or not Flynn discussed the lifting of sanctions against Russia with Sergey Kislyak before Trump’s inauguration. U.S. intelligence services routinely intercept and monitor diplomats. According to transcripts of the conversation, they show that General Flynn did discuss sanctions with the ambassador. What they don’t show is that the General made any sort of promise to lift the sanctions once Mr. Trump took office. Rather, they show Flynn making general comments about relations between the two countries improving under President Trump.
Had the General promised a lifting of sanctions, he would have violated a law that prohibits private citizens from engaging in foreign policy, the Logan Act. Flynn has stated that he really doesn’t remember the entire conversation, but the transcripts actually show he made no sort of promise, so reality is, the left is scared to death of Flynn and want him gone.
Personally, I can’t remember what I said on the telephone yesterday, let alone weeks or months ago, but the transcripts verify that Flynn did not break the law. Nevertheless, you have Pelosi tweeting, “Gen. Flynn should be suspended and have his intelligence clearance revoked.” Of course, you have Lindsey Graham joining with leftist Sheldon Whitehouse, both of whom lead the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subpanel on crime and terrorism, launching an investigation of Russia’s efforts to influence the U.S. election. Insanity reigns in our Congress.
We need Flynn, he has amazing intelligence regarding radical Islam, and he is probably the finest choice in Trump’s administration to carry out the duties of NSA Chief.
CIA Hatred of Trump Spills Over
CIA Director Pompeo, recently rejected a request for an elite security clearance for Senior Director for Africa, Robin Townley, required for service on the National Security Council. Townley is a long-time associate of Gen. Michael Flynn, and a former Marine intelligence officer who had long maintained a top secret-level security clearance.
Apparently, Flynn is justifiably angry over this rejection, and this escalates the friction between Flynn and this agency, one I’ve considered rogue for many decades. Townley had spent most of his adult life with high level clearances, so it is difficult to take this as anything but the war the CIA declared on Trump right after the election. The CIA actually had granted the same kind of clearance to Obama’s appointee, Ben Rhodes, despite Rhodes having been declined the same kind of clearance by the FBI because of his obsequious attachment to Iran.
Apparently, Flynn and his allies believe it was motivated by Townley’s skepticism of the intelligence community’s techniques — sentiments shared by Flynn, and many knowledgeable Americans.
The CIA and others in the intelligence community seem threatened by Flynn and his allies. Why? Because this 33-year Army intelligence veteran knows more about the dangers facing America than anyone. Marine Robin Townley doesn’t believe the CIA runs the world, and his closeness to his boss was probably what made him a target.
The CIA needs a massive cleanout, but meanwhile, Pompeo apparently believes his sandbagging of Townley is a small price to pay if it helps him avoid the Porter Goss treatment.
Flynn’s Plan to Beat Radical Islam
General Flynn not only wants to stop Islamic terrorists, but he wants to fight their radical ideology. He wants to combat it more broadly, using informational warfare. “We can’t possibly have an effective campaign against Radical Islamic ideology without the cooperation of the likes of Google, Facebook and Twitter.
“But first,” he writes, “the government has to overcome the political taboo of tying Islamic violence to the religion of Islam, including its sacred texts, which he says the enemy is using as a manual of warfare.”
“It’s long past time for us to denounce the many evils of Radical Islam,” he writes, while highlighting the many defeats of ISIS and al Qaeda to show potential recruits that “the Almighty has changed sides in the holy war.”
Advance details of the plan can be gleaned from Flynn’s book. In it, the Army veteran proposes discrediting the “evil (religious) doctrines” motivating jihadists — namely the Islamic rewards for martyrdom (or suicidal terrorism) and the totalitarian tenets of Sharia law — using psy-ops and counter-propaganda, not just through federal government channels but also through “our schools, media and social networks.”
“If we can’t tackle enemy doctrines that call for our domination or extinction,” Flynn writes, “we aren’t going to destroy their jihadis.”
Fired by former President Barack Obama from the Defense Intelligence Agency for taking such stands, Flynn vows to reverse the longstanding government practice of whitewashing the violent nature of the enemy’s faith through pleasant platitudes like, “The terrorists are hijacking a religion of peace” and other apologia. He calls such policies “Islamophilia,” and complains they border on appeasement, which, in my estimation, they do.
Nazis and Islamists
Donald Trump has been compared to Adolf Hitler by the leftists in America, by political adversaries who disagree with him vehemently and with vitriol. Professors, political commentators, irate comedians, Hollywood entertainers, and especially some of the leaders from our black communities have engaged in the purposeful promotion of this comparison. Their political demonizing is done for a purpose, but certainly not one that is helpful to America, and if you’ll notice, it also extends to Trump’s nominees.
Marion Ingeborg Andrews, (Inge) was born in Dusseldorf, Germany, in 1940 during Hitler’s reign. She is infuriated that people compare President Trump to Hitler and has said,
“What is going on in this country is giving me chills. Trump is not like Hitler. Just because a leader wants order doesn’t mean they’re like a dictator. What reminds me more of Hitler than anything else isn’t Trump, it’s the destruction of freedom of speech on the college campuses — the agendas fueled by the professors. That’s how Hitler started, he pulled in the youth to mis-educate them, to brainwash them, it’s happening today.”
“It saddens me that we are teaching garbage in the schools and in the college. We don’t teach history anymore. History repeats itself over and over. The kids out there today haven’t ever lived through a war like I did. I remember sitting in a rock pile, cleaning rocks, to rebuild Germany. I remember eating maple leaves and grass to survive.”
General Flynn’s book echoes Inge’s fears when he states, “Religious fanatics and secular tyrants work quite well together, transcending even deep ideological divides. The most dramatic example comes from the infamous case of the grand mufti of Jerusalem in the 1930s and 1940s, Amin al-Husseini, and his efforts to forge an operational relationship between Nazi Germany and his own Muslim Brotherhood.” Chuck Morse’s book, The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism spells it out clearly.
“Like the leaders of other fascist states, the mullahs who have ruled the Islamic Republic have claimed universal authority in the name of their doctrine, not of their country. And they say they are prepared to die—along with their followers—to accomplish their mission. As Khomeini put it shortly after the occupation of the American embassy in Tehran in 1979: “We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah…For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.” General Flynn – The Field of Fight.
The General makes this clear on page 103 of his dynamic book when he states, “Keep your eyes on that word, ‘totalitarian.” That is the key concept.”
“This also helps clarify the nature of the global alliance we face. The countries and movements that are trying to destroy us have worldviews that may seem to be in violent conflict with one another. But they are united by their hatred of the democratic West and their conviction that dictatorship is superior. So, while it may appear that, say, there is little in common between Communist North Korea, and radical Shi’ite Iran, or between the leaders of the radical Sunni Islamic State’s ‘caliphate’ and the Iranians, in fact it is no more difficult for them to cooperate in the war against us than it was for Hitler and the grand mufti to cooperate in the 1930s and 1940s.”
General Flynn knows that Iran is the core of terrorism training, and this is another reason that President Trump has said, “Iran’s nuclear deal is inconceivable and a disaster for Israel.” Link
Our President has stated many times, “Make America Safe Again.” Our president knows that some of the refugees and illegal aliens are of the criminal element, and his job as our President is to keep this sovereign nation’s people protected.
Trump and his nominees are real men, not men who have been feminized, and that’s why they hate real men like Trump, General Flynn, advisor Steve Miller, and his other nominees.
What’s good for the goose…So how about these leftists apply the same tactics towards their Hollywood and sports figures like they’re applying with the attacks on all of Trump’s nominees, but especially on General Flynn?!
Remember Dennis Rodman? The former NBA star and reality TV star gave a special birthday gift to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. A U.S. congressman calls it “bizarre and grotesque” and, with North Korea’s repressive regime in mind, compares it to “inviting Adolf Hitler to lunch.” And when questioned by Chris Cuomo of CNN, he had this to say, “I don’t give a rat’s ass what the hell you think.” Link
Sean Penn is another one. In 2008, the actor flew to Cuba to interview Castro. In what was a seven-hour conversation with Castro, Penn described the hardliner as having the “agility of a young man” who “exercises every day, his eyes are bright and his voice is strong.”
“Spielberg went down there recently to Cuba, and said, ‘The best seven hours I ever spent was actually with Fidel Castro,’” Duval said, “Now, what I want to ask him [is],” Duval said of Spielberg, “‘Would you consider building a little annex on the Holocaust museum, or at least across the street, to honor the dead Cubans that Castro killed?’ That’s very presumptuous of him to go there.”
Add to this fawning of the Communist Dictator, these other Hollywood actors, Jack Nicholson, Ted Turner, Danny Glover, Kevin Costner, Chevy Chase, and Harry Belafonte. Where is the Logan Act with them? Excuse me, why weren’t their conversations recorded??? Link
And what about George Clooney’s visit to Angela Merkel? Muslim migrants have now flooded into a massive camp next to George Clooney’s $10 million Italian villa. So, how about it George…maybe you could take in about 50 of them and feed and house them?!
The number of the White house comment line is (202) 456-1111, and the number of the house switchboard (202)225-3121. Call the White House, and then your senators and tell them we need General Michael T. Flynn as our National Security Advisor. No one else will do, we need Flynn!
