Michael Flynn Resigns…

…. Well, here’s my take.

look-below-the-surface-2

All I ever needed to know about this entire Michael Flynn Rubber Tire is abundantly evident in the following CNN paragraph(s):

CNN – The Justice Department warned the Trump administration last month that Michael Flynn misled administration officials regarding his communications with the Russian ambassador to the United States and was potentially vulnerable to blackmail by the Russians, a person familiar with the matter told CNN

[…]  The message was delivered by then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. Other top intelligence officials, including James Clapper and John Brennan, were in agreement the White House should be alerted about the concerns.

Which also explains why The Washington Post was the originating source of the ‘controversy’/’fiasco’.  As previously stated numerous times, The Washington Post is the official leak-outlet for the political arm of the CIA.  And the most politicized of all agents ever inside the CIA was John Brennan – a black hat extraordinaire.

So, swamp reviewers can begin to see how this Rubber Tire was constructed.

clapper-yates-brennan

The political agents within the “intelligence community”, ie. the Big Black Hats, took the position that General Michael Flynn must have lied to Vice President Pence because their interpretation of the phone call they intercepted was that Flynn did give some form (context and actual communication unknown) of forward assurance to the Russian emissary that a Trump administration would not approach the Russian Sanction issue (which, we should remember, is based on a non-existent vast Russian election hacking conspiracy) the same way as the Obama administration.

To wit, the pre-inagural Trump intelligence community, politically motivated as they were, alerted President-elect Trump (through Sally Yates) that their opinion (baseline that Flynn lied) was such that Flynn had now opened himself up for blackmail from the Russians.

A convenient, albeit typical and transparently political, divide and conquer strategy that holds all the fingerprints of chief schemer and manipulator John Brennan.

Whereas John Brennan constructs a false dichotomy, a useful parsel-tongue narrative, to put a wedge between President-elect Trump, Vice-President-elect Pence, and NSA Director Flynn, when/if it becomes most politically useful to deploy.

As in, when they become President Trump and Vice-President Pence.

The space between the FBI (who reviewed transcript and said no structural communication content seemed to be a ‘Logan issue’), and what the CIA can construct (their opinion is, Logan issue or not, Flynn’s a fibber), is the useful space where leaked differences of opinion to the media can create the controversy.

The black hats within intel (Hired by the Bigger Hats) then take lead from the Big exiting Black Hats and tell President Trump as long as their exiting intel position is that Flynn has misconstrued the conversation, well, they can no longer brief the President about sensitive matters of national security because there’s a compromise (Flynn) within the room.

Rightly or wrongly, the remaining intel can hide behind the former parsel-tongue policy interpretations and refuse to support the Trump admin.

Sorry, that’s our policy *Quack*!

Regardless of whether VP Pence or POTUS Trump accept that Flynn misled, so long as intel quackers have plausible deniability to sell their belief he did there will always be an ongoing issue.

Within the context of Potus and VPotus accepting these same quacking voices will continue leaking to their official outlet, The Washington Post, about the ongoing internal dynamics of the schism within the intel briefing disagreement standard, there is no upside to continue fighting on Flynn’s behalf.

An unknown variable when Rubber Tires like this are constructed, is the expressed opinion/relationship of the words from Pence.    Pence’s opinion of whether or not he was lied to, or even the truth behind what conversation he and Flynn may have had, becomes moot.

It’s ridiculous, however it’s also simply how political forces in the swamp keep the boil of controversy going regardless of the substance of the content behind it.    Like Brennan implied, you don’t want those CIA folks to have a chip on their black-hatted shoulders because they can leak, and you cannot rebuke the leak without breaking the law and discussing classified information / briefings.

It becomes a “he said, and You can’t say“; a one-way conversation with the insufferable media more than gleeful to sell an undermining narrative.

DC Tire Boils are always fubar.

FUBAR.

The piranha’s are biting a fake news rubber tire that has been dipped into the boil; and the swamp defenders who are holding the rope are intent on convincing the viewing audience it’s really a side of beef.

Wait for the boil to subside, and if you stick around long after the audience moves on, you’ll see a rubber tire removed.

Deep State is always beneath the surface.

Look below the surfacebrennan-duping-delight

      Thank you. Yes. Flynn was a neocon fox inside the new America-first foreign policy hen house. A man who never met a Muslim he didn’t want to shoot. A perpetual-war hawk. A man all too eager to shove America head first into a fight to the death between Islam and Christianity. He coauthored a book with Michael Ledeen, for crying out loud.

      Good riddance. And I’m not thrilled about neocon Petraeus either. Pres Trump doesn’t need any of these Bush/McCain/Obama, regime-change, nation-building, perpetual-war backsliders. I did not vote for Pres Trump just to bumble into Bush 3.

      And along those lines, Bolton needs to be kept on a VERY short leash.

Now she has to choose: be won over or run over. If she doesn’t loyally perform- whoosh- the trap door opens and down she goes into private life. Trump’s done the same with Priebus- he can either become indispensable or invisible- it’s his choice. I would love to see the same done with McCain- promote him, float him, then fire him. Meanwhile, someone else becomes an AZ senator.

          If the reason — per Sundance — for Flynn’s hasty departure resided in his potential use by Russia for blackmail (did I get that right?), then Petraeus is a non-starter owing to his very public display of untrustworthiness in the Broadwell affair.

          He runs with the Internationalist set and was for a time chief enforcer of COIN, which by all accounts proved ruinous not only to troop morale (don’t say anything when you hear the little boys scream, it’s just their custom . . . ), but to the appalling moral equivalency between Islam and the West which was its underpinning.

    • I had these same thoughts and felt alone with them. I am glad to find other people with the same sentiments. One wonders if Trump since now procuring Olympus mountain top, has tried to settle in and attempting to “bring everyone together”. Does he not understand that you cannot deal with these people with kid gloves. We are in the beginning of a civil war in this country, and he does not seem to have a grasp on the reality of this situation. He is now facing the task of literally destroying a huge portion of this monster, the federal government and I now do not believe he is up to the task.

      Yes, the people spoke and put him in office with the last remnant of the power they possess. But now they are discovering, that the other side has extensively more power and determination to keep the status quo.

      In some ways I have pity on Trump, because he pulled off a political hat trick, so to speak, of winning the presidency. But now that he has obtained the prize, he does not seem to know what to do with it! I am afraid that we are in for some rough times in the near future!

        What did he tell/not tell Pence? Specifically?
        Who can we trust to tell the truth about this? Certainly not the media or anyone in Congress. (Answer – in case you wonder – President Trump)
        Why in the heck does “when did President Trump have knowledge of this conversation” matter? Have we made any funky deals with the Russians since he took office?
        There is WAY more to this than meets the eye – and I would wager it has not one thing to do with conversations with the Russians by anybody.
        And I believe this was chumming too…by President Trump.

        Does anyone honestly think he let Ivanka sit behind the desk yesterday because it would make a good picture? Please…that was a message if I ever saw one. And to me, the message was to the Uniparty: “There’s more of me to come someday…just in case you wondered if I was one and done.”
        I Pray for his stamina and his good health and that he is surrounded at all times by warrior angels.
        I Pray that he will have the wisdom of Solomon every minute of every day.
        I Pray that the light of truth will illuminate all the dark places and make them clearly visible to him.

Also not keen on Rancid Pubis, and I have doubts about Kellyanne. I must say that I never, ever — couldn’t pay me to watch a football game, but this year I turned on the Super Bowl, not even sure why. I think I wanted to see if Lady Gaga was going to get political. It was in the middle of her act and the cameras moved to show Pence and the man standing next to him — that global fossil, James Baker. Thought I was going to have a heart attack. This is not good. I’ve never seen a vice president who seems to be constantly around the president. Sorry, can’t shake my distrust for Pence — how do we know he, possibly along with Rancid P., is not the leaker? He is, after all, a professional, establishment politician and a member of the Ryan, Pence, Walker, Preibus clique. Not good. Not good at all.

      That has been one of my concerns also. Flynn was appointed by Obama and seemed to go off the plantation momentarily with his scathing account of the Obama/Brennen/Hillary Doctrine of the Middle East and is a registered democrat. If one follows the ‘deep state’ plays, they know it is a long term game with many contingencies and are quite excellent at play acting a roll for gaining a seat at the table.
      “New American Century” tag line in several of his speeches while he was supposedly campaigning for Trump is a tell … I just wonder if Flynn was not the ‘set-up’ man for the Trump is tied to Russia narrative the ‘deep state’ and their media lackey’s, as well as the devout neocons of Congress. Because there have been immediate calls for investigations into “What did Trump know and when did he know it” and the GOPe flunkies like Ryan, whom is bests friends with Reince Preibus, that state “Flynn should not have lied to VP Pence” and then adding insult to injury McCain chimes in for an investigation into the Russian narrative of ‘hacking’, and possible Trump Admin ties and even alludes to Trump’s tax records.
      President Trump could have said, “Mike you fooled me, and I know who you are.”

I know that Flynn was the first to be fired (probably not the last). You do the math.

      As for the other leakers? Take a look at Katie Walsh (Donald Trump’s Deputy Chief of Staff) and Reince Preibus. My guess is that they are the next to be fired. Walsh was brought in on the recommendation of Preibus. She has ties to John McCain and the DNC.

  17. President Trump by executive order should have fired most of the top level CIA for refusing to brief and kept Flynn on.

    This is a war to the finish and we can’t have black hats who already screwed up the previous war strategy beyond all repair remaining in charge. If they didn’t want to brief, this was an opportunity for Trump to take a Chain Saw to the top level CIA.

    Remember not one CIA person ever resigned or was fired over the 911 fiasco and all of the subsequent fiascos. Time to end future fiascos. Purge the Intel Community of the black hats.

    Can someone explain to me how the POTENTIAL of Flynn being at risk of blackmail over a phone call can supersede, for Hillary worshippers/MSM, the blackmail opportunities for the nation states that hacked Hillary’s emails?
    Who hacked Hillary’s server, again?
    Lets see…..FBI says …..likely China, South Korea, Russia, Israel and a couple of Arab countries, if I remember correctly.
    If Flynn was a risk, we sure dodged one hell of a bullet with Hillary.

    I’m a longtime lurker and read this site and accompanying comments with great appreciation. Re: the leak: Does anyone think that, since they are required to ALWAYS be present that the secret service people who guard President Trump may be a part of that? Somehow that thought came to me while I was reading your great feedback on this article.

    Obama’s Brennan, Clapper and their Justice Department stooge have just confessed that they eavesdropped on President Trump’s aide … after the election. We need to know if this “blackmail” Intel operation continued after the inauguration … so that all involved can be pardoned for carrying out Obama’s directives OR can be immediately arrested for treason. I’d say 24 hours should be enough time for them to decide if they are defending the Constitution … or ex-President smirky-smirk

  21. I’m expecting to see a regular stream of information coming out of the White House and DOJ relating to swamprat investigations, charges etc. It’s how Trump will turn the narrative back to swamp-draining.

    Sessions knows what needs to be done, and from where I stand, is one of THE most trustworthy members of the team to carry out the mission.

      Session has been in DC long enough to know the traps. He felt them when they were vetting him as Attorney General. The snakes came out of their hiding and were nasty. I will never forget that.
      Miller worked for Session he knows the snakes also therefore Trump knows the Snakes.

    This has been one of my concerns. Flynn was appointed by Obama and seemed to go off the plantation momentarily with his scathing account of the Obama/Brennen/Hillary Doctrine of the Middle East and is a registered democrat. If one follows the ‘deep state’ plays, they know it is a long term game with many contingencies and are quite excellent at play acting a roll for gaining a seat at the table. They have done this type of operation many times.
    “New American Century” tag line in several of Flynn’s speeches while he was supposedly campaigning for Trump is a tell … I just wonder if Flynn was not the ‘set-up’ man for the Trump is tied to Russia narrative the ‘deep state’ and their media lackey’s, as well as the devout neocons of Congress. Because there have been immediate calls for investigations into “What did Trump know and when did he know it” and the GOPe flunkies like Ryan, whom is bests friends with Reince Preibus, that state “Flynn should not have lied to VP Pence” and then adding insult to injury McCain chimes in for an investigation into the Russian narrative of ‘hacking’, and possible Trump Admin ties and even alludes to Trump’s tax records. Also, add to the contents of Flynn and son the ‘tweets’ pertaining to the “Comet Pizza Ring”, whether true or not, are immediately jumped on by the media and are demonized – was this done knowing that it would bring much scrutiny to the Trump Admin?
    President Trump could have said, “Mike you fooled me, and I know who you are.”

    • The goal of their mission is to impeach Trump. Democrats, and the rest of the Unipary know that Trump will keep Americans safe with law and order, build a wall, bring jobs back to the USA, cut government spending and regulations, get rid of Obamacare, deport illegals, stop Muslim mass immigration, stop trade deals that hurt American workers, and improve infrastructure.

      When a country runs smooth and efficient there’s no need for all these useless bureaucrats. We have a very corrupt government. With Trump, the swamp will have a lot less taxpayer money to play with for votes. With a successful Trump administration, the Democrats may not have another president for 16 years. There’s a lot of jealousy in Congress, including the judges in the courts that a non-politican won the presidency when they couldn’t win as a lifetime politician who has lived their life off the public dole.

      The Uniparty wants continuous chaos to keep our eyes off of what they do or the lack of doing.

      They’ve been emboldened. We really don’t know what these “trust” issues were or if that was just made-up. However, what we do know is that this is the real beginning of what could end up being Trump’s undoing and that is very unfortunate. I’m praying that what has just occurred is what Trump planned and that he wasn’t forced into it.

    After reading many linked articles here and on daily thread, also one linked through Wikileaks, I think Flynn was not the right man for this job. He was loyal to Trump and Trump to him so it was a painful call.

    There may be other changes, but as always Trump decides based on competence for the present task. It’s not about the media or whether our side won or lost.

    Trump’s focus remains on moving forward for the country. That means putting the best people in key positions so that he can be effective.

    The image of Trump on the sinking Titanic with his small loyal staff – isolated- is what the media and liberals wants us to fall into. I doubt that is the reality. Fixating on “the small current circle” will make us crazy – the media ploy uncovered!

    Trump is a winner. His circle is growing beyond the transition. I’m going to ignore the Titanic story line and see where this sails.

    I said it before and Ill say it again. Something about Priebus doesn’t sit well with me especially when it comes to the leaks. While Priebus may not be the actual source of the leaks, he is allowing Obama holdovers to muck the transition up and ultimately, it makes Trump look bad. If we are being honest, Priebus was all establishment at least prior to Trump wrapping up the nomination.

    Go back and look at early comments about Trump from Priebus to see he was not a big fan. My fear is he leveraged the opportunity to serve Trump and if opportunity presented itself, to bring Trump down and elevate Pence to the presidency and restoring power to the establishment.

    Just look at the travel ban EO and how badly it was botched when they rolled it out. One can understand Trump and his non-political experience but isn’t this why Priebus was brought in because of his understanding on how to do things? At worst, Priebus seems to lack serious competence to be the right hand man of Trump.

    So what if it is Priebus or those he has allowed from Obama’s administration to remain manage to usurp Trump? Simply put… Civil War– which is exactly what the establishment from both parties want because their return to power is more likely with a public more concerned with fighting amongst one another.

    I hope to hell Pence isn’t involved in what obviously looks like an actual coup attempt.

      The travel ban order was not “botched”. That is a media narrative. It was a crystal clear order that was inherently non-controversial, but made out to be controversial by the media and by the left court-shopping to find an activist judge willing to overturn it.

      Don’t fall for the lies. The Executive Order was fine. It’s implementation was fine. A few people were inconvenienced…big deal, as if that has ever stopped the government in the past. The “problem” is that it was issued by Trump and not some other president. Period.

      When did Priebus suddenly become all loyal and “fend off” the Ryan-Romney-McMuffin coup attempt? When it looked like no coup was going to work before the election and best plan B would be to set up a 5th column. Him I was always skeptical about. Pence, I can see was useful in getting the critical Rust Belt. He is treading a very thin line of plausible deniability. But if he is also a 5th columnist, what can be done about it?

    The crazy MSM continues to tout two conflicting stories, simultaneously.

    In one breath they are slamming General Flynn for being dishonest with VP Pence and in the very next breath, they are demanding answers from the White House about what President Trump knew and if perhaps, he (Trump) directed Gen Flynn to have those discussions with the Russian diplomat.

    Can’t have it both ways…….

    If it was under President Trump’s direction, then General Flynn DID NOT lie to VP Pence because there is no way possible that VP Pence would not have known about this.

    Oddly, not one pundit has questioned this hypocrisy.
