From Obama on Down, the Fix Was In

Tactically on Flynn, Strategically on Trump – They set-up; planned, implemented, and executed the fake investigation. 
Let me set the stage on how this went down. It was all based on General Michael Flynn’s role as Obama’s Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and on his personal ideological positions on the global war on terror beliefs and a stance he held long before the 2016 Presidential Election campaign.
In February 2016, General Flynn joined the Trump Campaign to serve as a Senior National Security Advisor to Donald Trump. I know and remember it quite well as I was already serving with the Trump Campaign since November 2015 in a similar capacity. I had known and served along side General Flynn for many years as a senior intelligence officer.
So let’s start with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), under the leadership of the villainous James Comey, who began targeting General Flynn shortly after he was fired from DIA and forced to retire by then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in 2014, primarily for his outspoken criticism of the Obama Administration’s approach to Islamic terrorists.  

General Flynn had made the statement; “It infuriates me when our president bans criticism of our enemies, and I am certain that we cannot win this war unless we are free to call our enemies by their proper names: radical jihadis, failed tyrants, and so forth.” Flynn explained in an op-ed about why he was fired in 2014. “With good leadership, we should win. But we desperately need good leaders to reverse our enemies’ successes.”  The Obama administration took note.

It is important to understand that column was published in the New York Post on July 9, 2016. Three weeks later, the FBI launched an official probe, a counterintelligence investigation into Flynn and three others for that the FBI decided were allegedly colluding with Russia to rig the election in favor of Donald Trump, whose campaign Flynn was now advising. The investigations code name for Flynn was named, Cross Fire Razor.
Over the course of that three-week period, the Obama FBI, Justice Department, and Intelligence Community began to build their case, taking the charges to the extreme⏤he acted as an agent of Russia. He colluded with the Kremlin to rig the 2016 presidential election. He turned on his country by attempting to undermine U.S. foreign policy. He purposely misled the vice president. He had an extramarital affair with a Russian asset. He is a liar.
Those are just some of the accusations that have been leveled against Lt. General Michael Flynn for nearly four years. Flynn, a three-star U.S. Army general with a 33-year career, tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, made the mistake of crossing the Obama White House; he’s been suffering the consequences ever since.  
There is even more about General Flynn while serving as the DIA Director that irked the Obama administration, the Intelligence Community, and the Democrats and some Establishment Republicans in Congress that only a few know about that has ever come to the surface. We’ll talk about that in my next Op-ed in the coming days.
Worse, the country he heroically served for decades, for the most part, betrayed him. From the U.S. Justice Department to the president of the United States to the federal court system to his own lawyers, Flynn has been deceived at every turn in what certainly is one of the most tragic miscarriages of justice in recent political history.
Fast forward, after campaigning for Trump in 2016 and leading chants of “lock her up” during the Republican National Convention, Flynn rose to the top of Obama’s Chicago machine-style political hit list. During a post-election meeting in the Oval Office, Obama warned Trump not to hire Flynn as his national security advisor. Trump didn’t heed his advice—and Flynn and Trump both have paid a steep price.
Using their functionaries in the news media, the Obama White House and their loyalists in the Justice Department concocted a scheme to destroy Flynn’s career. The ruse would involve phone calls between an Obama-friendly Russian ambassador (note; he visited the Obama White House twice in October 2016), Sergei Kislyak, and Trump’s incoming national security advisor. After Obama ordered weak sanctions against Russia for “attacking” our election, Kislyak desperately tried to reach Flynn in December 2016 to discuss how the sanctions would be handled by the incoming Trump Administration in hindsight seems like a calculated move. Remember it was Kislyak who made the request and not Flynn.
With that, let me set this scene. As a Senate non-confirmed position, the incoming national security advisor is automatically part of the President-elects transition team who traditional assists in the peaceful transfer of power. Because he or she is close to the president-elect, most foreign heads of state see that person as an avenue and access to the new President. Every foreign policy leader scramble to get a call into or get a meeting with the new national security adviser during the transition in the attempt and hope of scoring points with the new administration. Since as the incoming national security advisor, Flynn was technically a civilian and a non-functioning policy maker or coordinator of the U.S. Government. It was still the Obama administration that ran U.S. foreign policy. For the Obama administration that conversation would serve as the pretext to accuse Flynn of violating the Logan Act, a law that forbids private citizens from undermining U.S. foreign policy decisions.

No one ever has been prosecuted under the 1799 statute. Instead, “They tormented him, they destroyed him,” President Trump said of his former aide. “But he’s going to come back bigger and better.”

As expected, as part of the plan, an Obama official leaked the Flynn-Kislyak conversation to the Washington Post in January 2017 to perpetuate the unfolding Russian collusion narrative. The information provided to the Post, involved disclosing classified government information which is a felony punishable by up to 10-years in prison. While we know the reporter, David Ignacious, who published the story, the Obama White House leaker provided information pertaining to a potential Logan Act violation, has not yet been charged. But based on available information it is almost likely appears to be Sally Yates, as she was conducting a classified investigation against Flynn pertaining to the Logan Act.
A few days after Inauguration Day, Comey bypassed protocol to ambush Flynn in the White House.
First it is necessary to understand the proper protocols. As an example, In the George W. Bush Administration or the Obama Administration … if the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, they would work through the White House counsel’s office, there would be discussions and approvals and who would be there. What would be discussed and why. Remember they are part of the same administration and supposed to be working together. Particularly, four days into the new President’s administration. Nevertheless, in the case of James Comey, there was the ever-evil Obama agenda. With regard to Comey, he said in an interview; “And I thought, it’s early enough, let’s just send a couple guys over. We placed a call to Flynn, said ‘hey we’re sending a couple of guys over, hope you’ll talk to them.’ He said, ‘sure.’ Nobody else was there.”
To Flynn’s dismay and to every loyal patriotic American, this turned out to be a disgusting move on the part of Comey and his henchmen. Flynn was unaware that the January 24, 2017 meeting with the FBI agents was a set-up. It was specifically, an interrogation, it was essentially a fake sting operation by Obama. General Flynn met with the agents—one as we now know was Peter Strzok. It was conducted in a secure, informal setting in the White House Situation Rooms without counsel. 
Of course, in despicable form of the Obama administration rules, the FBI agents did not notify Flynn that he was under investigation or remind him of his legal rights, hence his Miranda Rights; Flynn viewed the agents not as investigators but as allies attempting to find out more about Russia’s election interference efforts. That in and of itself is grounds for throwing out his case. Shame on those in the Justice Department and the Judges involved who never questioned that legal aspect. Unfortunately, that impromptu meeting, however, sealed Flynn’s fate. That was Agent Strzok’s doing.  
Then, a year later, immediately after receiving notice that the FBI intended to close the case, Strzok texted, “Hey if you haven’t closed RAZOR. The FBI codename for the Flynn case, don’t do so yet.” Unknown to all, in the days following Strzok argued to re-open the formal investigation.  
The puzzling question that arose was, if the FBI knew as of January 4, 2017 that Flynn was innocent, why then did agents sneak into the White House and interview Flynn with an eye to getting “him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”  This was a bombshell disclosure revealed this past Thursday.
For the past year, much to the effort put forth by Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell, she prevailed. As a result, the release of critical documents in Flynn’s ongoing court case, were the result of the hard work and to the tenacity of Attorney Powell. Her focused attention to detail, uncovering the facts and uncovering all the facts, proved the fix was in. According to handwritten notes taken after the Flynn-interview, FBI officials pondered the desired outcome. “What is our goal?” the notes read. “Truth/admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.” As it was later discovered this week, it turns out those hand-written notes were written after the fact, after James Comey was fired in May 2017, as a cover for the investigation as counterintelligence process. 
Further, another question would be answered a few days later in late January 2017, when Sally Yates, the acting attorney general and Obama holdover, visited Trump’s lawyer to push the Logan Act scheme and warn that Flynn was “compromised with respect to the Russians” and might be subject to blackmail by the Kremlin.
Needless to say, when Yates’ political chicanery and deception failed to oust Flynn, several officials illegally leaked details of the Flynn-Kislyak call to the Washington Post. In the February 9, 2017 story, the paper reported that Flynn discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador despite his public denials. That was a total lie. While Kislyak asked, Flynn knew full well he could not answer as he was not the national security advisor, nor Trump the president yet.
Amid pressure, Flynn resigned four days later. Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, Flynn noted that he inadvertently briefed the Vice President-Elect and others with incomplete information regarding his phone calls with the Russian Ambassador, Flynn had written in his February 13, 2017 resignation letter. The General further stated, “I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology.”
As a result of deception, dishonesty and lying, the bad guys had their first Trump-Russia Collusion scalp. 
In May 2017, following Comey’s firing by President Trump, Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel. In December 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to making a false statement to federal investigators during the January 24, 2017 ambush and entrapment interview.
But the chicanery didn’t end there, even that plea deal was tainted. Flynn’s former lawyers, Covington and Burling, according to recently released documents, made a secret side deal with the special counsel’s office to extract the plea deal in exchange for not pursuing Flynn’s son. Currently, Flynn is petitioning the court to vacate his plea. He has not yet been sentenced. In fact, the case should be thrown out and Flynn exonerated due to fraud, fabrication and having never been read his Miranda Rights by the FBI. 
Now the court is demanding that Flynn’s former law firm produce all correspondence with the Justice Department after the firm “suddenly” discovered thousands of pages of evidence they had been withholding.
Finally, after a three-year nightmarish journey, Flynn may find justice. President Trump said of his former aide on Thursday, “What they did to General Flynn and others was a disgrace.”

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?
