The Lame Duck Timeline Strongly Suggests President Obama Set Up Intelligence Scheme To Undermine Trump…

Jay Sekulow outlines the case [Video Here] that President Obama set-up a plan for the intelligence community to target President Trump.

Specifically through the use of a lame-duck executive order, President Obama authorized multiple intelligence agencies to have access to Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) including phone call intercepts.

(Via ACLJ) […]  First, as the New York Times reported earlier this week, in its final days, the Obama Administration expanded the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) to share globally intercepted personal communication with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying any privacy protections.

The new rules were issued under section 2.3 of Executive Order 12333 after approval by two Obama Administration officials: Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Director of National Intelligence Director, James Clapper.

Second, the new rules, which were issued in an unclassified document, entitled Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the National Security Agency (NSA), significantly relaxed longstanding limits on what the NSA may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations.

These operations are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. Surveillances include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls, and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

The changes initiated by the Obama Administration in its waning days empowered far more agents and officials to search through raw intelligence data. As a direct consequence of the change in policy, it appears that the prospect of intel leaks grew exponentially. Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed the new rules permitting the NSA to disseminate raw signals intelligence information on January 3, 2017 after Director of National Intelligence James Clapper signed them on December 15, 2016.  (read more)

The dates here are key, because it was after the 2016 election when DNI James Clapper was reported to be recommending the removal of NSA head, Admiral Michael Rogers:

[November 19th, 2016] (Reuters) The heads of the Pentagon and the U.S. intelligence community have recommended to President Barack Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, be removed from his position, sources familiar with the matter said on Saturday.

The recommendation by Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, first reported by The Washington Post, was delivered to the White House last month.  (read more)

He put his feet on the Resolute desk–a NATIONAL treasure–which is like walking on the Mona Lisa or scribbling on the Magna Carta to me. He went into the Oval Office in sweats–as if he knew all along he was unworthy of the office which WAS the case. Ronald Reagan, both Bushes and even the scumbag Clinton (even while Monica was polishing his knob) had such respect for the office they never entered the OO without a suit and tie. obama is ghetto scum who won the electoral lottery on vote fraud and white guilt and destroyed America for his globalist leash holders. He’s unworthy of respect–he hasn’t EARNED it. I grew up in Palm Beach Florida and Trump has always had my respect–decades before he decided to make the sacrifices he’s made to save America.

        I agree. Completely. Long game. Comey played the only winning game that a tied-up victim can play. LONG.

        Comey more than anybody realized that he by himself had no winning game against the Clinton Deep State. By doing nothing, he tucked in with a win by either side. I think that Trump actually had deep understanding of Comey’s predicament, and probably knows nuances that tell him Comey is an independent white hat – which is actually what you want for the job.

        In fact, I am guessing that one of the chess problems Trump works on for “fun” is who should succeed Comey – and it has to be somebody who is just as good or better for the Constitution and Jeffersonian long-game. THAT is an even harder problem than the VP pick, which was champion-level political play.

        Lynch did the same thing, but more openly, by not going after Cankles. She’s probably hoping for a SCOTUS nomination by the next Radical Black President, if the Obama wing ever returns to power with somebody like Corey Booker or Deval Patrick. So Lynch went easy on Cankles, letting her have the possibility of a win without charges or a pardon. That keeps her viable in the Democrat party, no matter who wins internally.

        THAT was the Snakes On A Plane deal – a friendly wink that she would do nothing, leaving open the option to be Hillary’s AG. Lynch is far too cunning to make a deal that was either unprotected as an informant for Comey, or open to recording and usable by the Clintons for leverage. She plays long game very well, too. She’s a paperless radical – NOTHING in her past to indicate that she’s a commie, other than what she does. She’s more Obama than Obama. Sadly, she will be back, unless Comey has some goods on her, which I seriously doubt.

        I have alternately called Comey a snake and a hero, depending on where we were in this complicated mess. At this point, I strongly suspect that, when the final story is written, he will simply be considered an excellent FBI director, and perhaps the only one who could have possibly survived the turbulent waters of the Obama-Trump transition.

          “No reasonable prosecutor would press charges” could be seen in an entirely different light…maybe Comey wasn’t making a legal argument at all. Maybe it was an “I’d be a fool to even attempt this–any prosecutor with a lick of sense who knew what I do would feel the same way” (cleverly crafted) statement. Remember how upset everyone was at that particular Comey statement? So many legal scholars (and just regular Americans) felt like that statement made absolutely no sense. Well, it didn’t seem to make sense legally. But did it make sense on a different level?

          I never understood why Comey referenced other prosecutors in the first place (in that statement), and then his only defense on the matter was the “we can’t determine intent” weirdness.

          Comey looked like he was a sweaty, anxious wreck making his official statements — like a hostage. So many who knew the man said he was beyond reproach with ethics… it’s made we wonder. Maybe he felt he had nowhere to turn, so he did what he could, as others here outlined. He did seem REALLY upset at suggestions that his integrity/the bureau’s was in question. Maybe he’s White Hat all the way. Regardless, makes me wonder how many have felt trapped within the confines of various departments. They can all use our prayers, as other help is now undoubtedly on the way.

          No crime writer could possibly make the evolving underground politics of today into a sellable story. It’s way too dramatically unbelievable and convoluted!

      Comey is a keymaster. He not only has the keys to unlock doors revealing things that will horrify us average people, but also the sequence of doors to open for maximum effect. President Trump has him leveraged to the hilt and on a short choker leash. Because President Trump kept him on, AND nominated a man of integrity to oversee Comey, Comey will prove his usefulness if only to keep his sorry ass out of jail… I don’t know about anyone else, but I sure wouldn’t want to play chess or even checkers with President Trump, but it sure is fun as heck to watch…last comment – I watched President Trump’s hour plus news conference yesterday.

        Trump spoke yesterday about “tone”. Your last few sentences made a light bulb go off.

        What is more frightening then having someone that’s furious about something speak
        in an extremely calm manner? Do you think that, perhaps, some of those present got
        that vibe? When someone is beyond fed up with instances, beyond cursing, screaming,
        throwing things their tone gets calm. It’s at that instant divorces, murders, business
        partnership dissolutions, and writing off drug dependent friends and families occurs.

        Wonder if anyone there caught that vibe, and will behave accordingly? Notice the
        ones complaining the loudest on air yesterday weren’t physically present?

          YTG, During the presser at some point I sensed a quietness from the press people. So much so I start watching the faces as the camera capture some of them while another was posing the question. I saw a difference in the countenances. Many were ‘listening’ in a different manner. I couldn’t decide if they were finally being a little convinced that what he was saying was actually true about them, or that the quiet, calm tone was somewhat putting a little fear in them regarding him. Maybe both.

          As DDave said, “It is my belief we have not seen anything yet…”

          A frigging conservative feminist ally in the White House, and he got there through the faith of conservative, religious women, who voted for him in numbers that beat the Hillarybots. LOL! The RAGE on the left has to be supreme, and yet it’s ultimate karma delivered to the left for dumbing down their brand of feminism.

          This is the thing that I love about Trump. He gets that where women are TRULY under-represented or unsupported is extremely complex math – defying even a brain like his. That’s why he goes after opportunity – not regulation.

          The natural representation level of women in a field may be 30% now, and either 20% or 60% at some point in the future due to cultural and technological change – none of which is easy or even possible to predict, even knowing everything about our current culture and technology. It is extremely difficult to truly know that one is dealing with a valid discrepancy. Bald assertions that deviations from 50% in numbers and 100% in pay are “discrimination” are worse than wrong – they teach simplistic thinking, and actually dumb down the left (including women). The left may want that, but the right will take smarts, thank you.

          Disparate impact and typical left-wing assertions of group under-representation are almost always wrong, because individuals and even groups of individuals are rarely if ever qualified or well-enough informed to make a valid assertion about representation or pay. ONLY society itself can actually do the final calculation. The PEOPLE decide. Not government.

          So how do you help society do the calculation and resolve problems that are hard to see? Break down barriers, make opportunities that allow a natural equilibrium to arrive sooner, but DON’T tell the system how to work. Let the system create its own checks and balances, INCLUDING NECESSARY DISCRIMINATIONS which will arise in response to increased opportunity. That’s important. That’s how you avoid the damage of Obama-type thinking that everything needs to be solved from above.

          Trump. He TOLD us he loved women, and wanted to help women achieve big things. People who dismiss ANYTHING he says are fooling themselves. All the things Trump ever said about women are what he really believes. They are NOT platitudes. The leftist feminists who honed in on “grab her by the xxxxx” completely missed the big picture.

    This is all good stuff in this thread, but I feel we’re barking up the wrong tree(s). The lame-duck EO may be a symptom of something much larger. Admittedly there is strong evidence that the EO was intended to trash Trump (and by extension Russia), but looking backward beyond the start of the timeline may be instructive, and provide greater context. So here I go…

    Going way back, to the onset of the Syrian mess, I recall the Russians, and maybe even Putin himself, asking in some sort of public way ‘Why is the US supporting ISIS and al-Qaeda’? Talk about a political minefield being laid! Russian intelligence must have known of the arms shipments from Libya, and the Syrian visits by Heroic Senator McCain and his posse of future NeverTrumpers. Heck, the Russians probably have better pictures of the visits than we’ve seen.

    This would make McCain and friends prone to compromise and blackmail, which would be the least of their worries, given the potency of the ISIS issue, the failed Russian reset and terrorism in the presidential campaign. And of course, this also leads back to the obama White House, Clinton’s tenure at DoS and Brennan to name a few. Wonder why Hillary was worried about ‘hanging together’?

    The EO and related policy change makes a lot of sense to me in this context. They served as a massive smoke bomb, hiding what obama and his co-conspirators didn’t want the public to see, which is the truth in all the campaign issues raised above. As a bonus, they facilitated the plausible deniability of active sedition against the Trump administration and executive branch, and the trashing of any hope of a true rest with Russia. Schumer knew this for sure. Why else would he have said the IC has so many ways to get back at Trump?

    Regardless, this is big. But I think Trump and his team are more than capable of dealing with this and other attacks against our country.

      My theory is that this is all in. If not impeachment there is no payoff for the risk they are taking. If they fail to impeach Trumpzilla he will obliterate them all.It is little known that an underlaying crime may not be needed to impeach. Just the votes. We need to know the rules of the game. here….

      There is no authoritative pronouncement, other than the text of the Constitution itself, regarding what constitutes an impeachable offense, and what meaning to accord to the phrase “other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” When he was a Congressman, Gerald R. Ford advocated the ultimately unsuccessful impeachment of a Supreme Court Justice by defining an impeachable offense as anything on which a majority of the House of Representatives can agree. As impeachment is understood to be a political question, Ford’s statement correctly centers responsibility for the definition of “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” in the House. The federal courts have thus far treated appeals from impeachment convictions to be nonjusticiable. Nixon v. United States (1993). Even if the issue of impeachment is nonjusticiable, it does not mean that there are no appropriate standards that the House should observe.

      Great catch, you’re 100% correct. Robin Townley was his name.

      From the NY Daily News:
      “Amid growing concerns over national security adviser Michael Flynn’s alleged ties to Russia, a senior official on the National Security Council was refused top-secret clearance on Friday, according to a report. Robin Townley, the senior director for Africa and one of Flynn’s closest deputies, was subsequently fired from the NSC, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter told Politico. The move, which was reportedly approved by President Trump’s CIA director Mike Pompeo, angered Flynn and his deputies, who speculated that the snub was an act of retaliation aimed at their skepticism over the intelligence community’s leadership, sources said.”

            What is in Pres. Trump’s mind 24/7? He’s a target from within the Deep State.

            Here, with Flynn, we see them strike by the 24th day. But they really set it in motion on Nov.9th.

            The only Steve Pieczenik has correct is there was a fight for the Republic. (Coup-counter-coup). They took down Clinton. Now they want to control Trump. It’s ideological for some. It’s Trillions for others. But they want to run policy and budgets.

            They have all their ducks lined up.
            Look at the meetings with the Russians so far.
            No cooperation in Syria over ISIS.
            Crimea is on the table, says Tillerson, Spicer, Haley.
            Minsk 2 is about Russian’s compliance (total fallacy. Russia has no task to do in Ukraine via Minsk 2. It is the obligation of Ukraine to do everything. Russia, Germany and France are to work to get implementation by Ukraine. Read it. It’s in plain English. 13 steps.
            So, the Generals met. The SOS and FM met.
            Same as if Obama and Kerry were running the show.

            Trump does not have a handle on this relationship yet. They are running with what was in place.

            Except for one thing. Thousands of tanks and missiles and troops are aligned in East Europe very near Russian borders. Aegis-type missile defenses with Tomahawk cruise missiles are very close to Russia now in Romania and Poland.

            So, yesterday, the Russians flew some big Bear bombers and fired X-101 cruise missiles from the bombers (these are old prop-engine) and demonstrated the new missile capability 5500 km range, a variant of which, X-102 is nuclear. The message was clear. Yes they killed some ISIS with the demo, but they were saying, we can take out your NATO stuff from behind the Ural mountains with these new missiles you’ve known about but never saw fly.

            With the Kalibr missiles they have used in various strikes in Syria, and several other missile types, they have weapons that will reduce NATO to ashes.

            Yet, yesterday, we didn’t get down to reality either in Bonn or Baku or Brussels.
            Trump spoke to it. He said it clearly that Russia has enormous nuclear weaponry. He’s been briefed in depth. He knows that this is the end of the world stuff. And he wants to get down from the edge of the abyss. That means talk and listen. Tillerson didn’t, Dunford didn’t and Mattis didn’t.

            But Cotton is going all neocon with new anti-Russian laws to tie Trump’s hands.

The “soft coup” architects would have a hard time defending Obama’s EO given that the EO was widely underreported for obvious reasons. Bringing it out in the open by rescinding it just might send the rats scurrying.

    According to NSA whistleblowers all emails are captured off the Internet and available in NSA archives. These archives cannot be acknowledged because they were warrantless wiretaps. We have to assume gov emails, phone recordings etc are also available

    By such data anti Trump operatives intend to destroy Trump:
    Assume everything has been recorded. Feed edited information to reporters. Reporter produces a hit piece hoping for a denial from the WH. The WH issues a denial based upon the hit piece, not the whole story (especially if it involves security)

    If the WH says anything that contradicts the full evidence, the remaining evidence will be fed to the press to make the WH look bad.

    Flynn held generic conversations with governments putting out feelers. The interactions were not profound and that was telegraphed to Pence. The press baits Pence on Russia and Pence replies from his own context. Then the hit men release just enough more data to make Pence look like he was chumped

    Who can remember everything said in a campaign. The ones holding the recordings can tailor the questions to get the answer that fits the trap

    Now they are trying the same game on Kelly. No General waits for a war to decide how he will fight. It is not impossible the General would make a plan in case national guard were needed

    But MSM is handed a National Guard game plan, and they run to the WH.. The WH reflex will be denial because there is zero political plan to use National Guard. Now it looks like someone was lying or someone was rogue.

    Deep State is trying to kill off the Generals. Flynn was fired by Obama because Flynn would not go along with the Obama narrative that al qaeda was under control

    Funny, I went to wikipedia to see what they posted on Flynn, and the article quotes a ‘private’ email by Colin Powell criticizing Flynn. The email was ‘leaked’ online. Same game different names

    So if you were Obama and we’re going to bug the Whitehouse… how would you do it in a way that you could be sure to see if your bug was still there without access to get in? Remember when in the first days of the Trump admin one of the first freak-outs the media had. The bust of Martin Luther King. Now if every time I turned on the TV I could see my bug was still there without any phone calls or direct checking I could tell it hadn’t been moved or interfered with. Obama is a narcissistic individual remember. Where was Trump sitting when the phone calls between Mexico and Australia was taking place?. In the oval office. Who leaked the calls? Could have been an insider or could have just been listening Obama staffers. Where might a bug possibly be hidden? Check the bust of MLK.

    A Civil War For Control Of The U.S. Government Has Erupted Between ‘The Deep State’ And Donald Trump
    http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/a-civil-war-for-control-of-the-u-s-government-has-erupted-between-the-deep-state-and-donald-trump

    The ruthless political assassination of Michael Flynn was just one battle of a major civil war that has erupted for control of the U.S. government. Donald Trump and his new administration are now under relentless assault by “the deep state”, and at this point it is not clear who will emerge as the victor….

    There is a vast and exceedingly complex tapestry of laws, rules and regulations that govern the behavior of government officials. In past administrations, those laws, rules and regulations have been very selectively enforced, but now the “deep state” intends to use them as weapons against the Trump administration.

    In essence, Donald Trump and his team are walking through a minefield, and his enemies are watching like a hawk for even the smallest slip up.

    Theoretically, everyone working for the federal government is now working for Donald Trump. But in reality that is not the case. I wrote about the sabotage that is being done by Obama loyalists a few days ago, and it isn’t going to stop until Donald Trump does a complete housecleaning.

    I believe that Obama, Lynch, Clapper, Brennan, etc. need to be investigated for treason, and if found guilty they need to spend a few decades looking at the world from behind bars.

It’s like they come up with a plan, can’t imagine it failing and hence don’t come up with contingency plans or failsafes. Case in point is the election itself. We can tell by the way they started scrambling around in such a haphazard manner after the election that they really couldn’t conceive of losing and had no backup plan “just in case.”

    Obama took over the government. Hillary was supposed to win and he’d have been in charge behind the scenes as Putin was really in charge when Medvedev was ostensibly the president. Remember the hot mic when Obama told Medvedev that he’d have more “flexibility” when he was reelected and Medvedev replied he’d “tell Vladimir”. Well that’s how it was supposed to be the next 8 years — Hillary the “president” while Obama pulled strings behind the scenes. At the end of eight years, there wouldn’t be a USA as we know it today — the SCOTUS would be packed with Leftists, the Second amendment would be gone — you guys are smart enough to figure out the rest of it for yourselves. Donald Trump SAVED us. He’s the ONLY one in the field who could have beaten Hillary, the media, the entertainers, Soros AND the counterculture which is now the culture.

              From Thomas Wictor:

              http://www.thomaswictor.com/leakers-beware/

              President Trump has defeated Democrats in the intelligence community (IC) who were leaking classified information to the press. Such leaks have been a problem for many presidents, but Trump is the first who took a proactive approach and set up a sting operation that identified the leakers. It’s highly illegal to leak classified information. It’s also illegal to PUBLISH this information, but Trump is too smart to try and prosecute reporters.

              I thought that Trump would fire members of the IC until the leaks stopped, but the president solved the problem with a much more imaginative and deadly approach: He fed the IC false information. When this information was published, Trump was able to identify individual leakers.

              How?

              Each group or individual who leaked was given a different version of events. This is CLASSIC spycraft. If nine individuals are told nine different stories, and then each of those stories is published, you know the identity of each person who talked to the press.

              It’s called a “barium meal,” after the medical test used to detect problems in the gastrointestinal tract. Soft tissues don’t show up on X-rays. Barium salts are “radio-opaque,” meaning that they show up in a radiograph or X-ray.

              Author Tom Clancy called it a “canary trap.” You give multiple sources multiple versions of events. When the sources repeat their version word for word, you can identify each leaker individually.
              Magic

              In World War II, “Magic” was the code name for the code-breaking done by the US Army’s Signals Intelligence Service (SIS) and the US Navy’s Communication Special Unit. Japanese military code was called “Purple.” Although Magic had been able to break much of Purple, some things were still a mystery.

              Magic determined in early 1942 that the Japanese were close to carrying out a major attack. However, the location of the attack—which the Japanese called “AF”—could not be figured out. Therefore the Americans carried out a barium test: Using an underwater cable, they contacted Midway Island, telling the base to broadcast a radio message “in the clear” that the desalinization plant had broken down.

              The Japanese immediately sent a coded message to their forces that the desalinization plant at AF had broken down.

              Now the Americans knew that the target of the impending attack was Midway Island. The greatest admiral in the US Navy—Frank Jack Fletcher—was sent out to meet the Japanese before they arrived.

              Fletcher was like Donald Trump. He was fearless and imaginative, a man who took massive but CALCULATED risks when given a nearly impossible job. He sank all four of the Japanese aircraft carriers, killing the most experienced officers, sailors, airmen, flight-deck facilitators, and mechanics. Japan never recovered, since there wasn’t enough time to train replacements.

              Frank Jack Fletcher was the only flag officer who refused to be interviewed for the official US naval history of World War II. He said that his own actions were unimportant; all that mattered was what his men did. Winner of the Medal of Honor for his actions at the Battle of Veracruz (April 21-24, 1914), he died four days before his 88th birthday.
              Hiring a hit man

              In law enforcement, officers must avoid “entrapment.” A potential criminal must decide to commit the crime him or herself. Officers can’t put the idea into the person’s head. If, for example, a person wants to hire a hit man to murder a spouse, a police officer will pose as a murderer. That officer will ask over and over, “Are you sure you want to do this?”

              The officer will describe in detail what he’s going to do, as well as the consequences. The person hiring the hit man therefore makes an informed choice to commit the crime.

              Donald Trump posed as a hit man. He made sure that the leakers in the IC knew that their actions were illegal. He WARNED them. Then he launched his sting.
              Timeline of the leakers being identified

              December 10th, 2015: Retired US Army General Michael T. Flynn attended a conference and banquet in Moscow to celebrate the 10th anniversary of TV news channel RT. It’s claimed that Flynn—a frequent RT paid commentator—was seated next to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the concluding banquet. In reality an empty chair separated the men.

              Late January of 2016 – General Michael Flynn began unofficially advising Donald Trump on foreign policy.

              August 17, 2016 – As the Republican nominee, Donald Trump received his first classified briefing by the IC. The briefing was prepared by Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper. Retired US Army General Michael Flynn sat in.

              September 29, 2016 – Time magazine published classified information that the IC briefed Donald Trump that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The source for this claim is an unidentified intelligence official.

              October 7, 2016 – The Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence officially accused the Russian government of hacking of the DNC “to interfere with the US election process.”

              October 31, 2016 – Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid wrote a letter to FBI Director James Comey, claiming that Comey had “explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States.”

              November 15, 2016 – Donald Trump received his first presidential daily briefing (PDB). He was given highly classified information by members of the IC. Immediately the IC told the press that Trump demanded security clearances for his children. Trump denied the claim. General Michael Flynn sat in on the PDB.

              November 18, 2016 – Trump chose General Michael Flynn as his National Security Adviser. A former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Flynn is trained in espionage.

              December 9, 2016 – The IC told the press that Trump receives only one PDB per week, at his request. Initially the press did not report that Vice President Elect Mike Pence received the six other presidential daily briefings. Pence is very experienced in foreign policy, having brought multiple Israeli defense contractors to Indiana when he was governor.

              The press also did not report the context for Trump receiving one PDB per week: Trump delegates responsibilities. Mike Pence will serve as the president’s surrogate in the foreign policy realm, freeing up Trump to concentrate on domestic policy.

              Late December, 2016 – The FBI opened an investigation into the claims that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 US presidential election.

              January 10, 2017 – The press began to write about a 35-page dossier put together by an alleged British former spy. The dossier claimed that Russia was attempting to blackmail Donald Trump through the use of sex tapes. Trump denied the allegation.

              January 11, 2017 – Trump described his first sting. In order to identify the people leaking classified information to the press, Trump did not tell his staff that the IC was about to brief him. After the briefing, the news was leaked to the press. Trump was therefore able to identify the leakers. He warned them that this behavior is illegal.

              January 11, 2017 – DNI James Clapper spoke to Trump by telephone about the leaks. Clapper issued a statement that the leaks are “extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security.”

              January 23, 2017 – Having LISTENED TO THE TAPES, the FBI cleared General Michael Flynn of any wrongdoing in his conversations with Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak. Flynn did not violate the Logan Act by attempting to influence US foreign policy.

              February 2, 2017 – The IC leaked what it said were details of conversations between President Trump, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. Both Australia and Mexico denied media reports that the calls were acrimonious and that Trump made threats, was rude, and behaved badly.

              February 8, 2017 – In an interview with the Washington Post, General Michael Flynn categorically denied having discussed sanctions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Thus we see that the Washington Post had been given classified information by the IC and wanted to get Flynn on record so that they could spring what they thought was a brilliant trap.

              February 9, 2017 – The New York Times and the Washington Post published articles claiming that General Michael Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December of 2016. The articles were very confusing and contradictory.

              Why couldn’t the IC tell us if Flynn had broken the law or not? Because everyone had been given a different story.

              General Flynn also knew he was being recorded. Therefore we can have no doubt that this was a sting operation coordinated between President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, General Flynn, the FBI, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

              February 13, 2017 – The IC told the press that in late January, acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates warned the White House that General Michael Flynn may be vulnerable to Russian blackmail, due to his conversations with Ambassador Kislyak. Yates based her opinion on “a report.” Sally Q. Yates is the first of the disloyal Democrats to be passed false information. She never listened to the actual tapes of Flynn’s conversations.

              February 16, 2017 – Donald Trump gave a press conference in which he admitted to the sting. He said that the leaks are real, but the news is fake.

              In other words, the ODNI fed the IC false information that the IC then blathered to the press. The ODNI did this in order to restore to President Trump complete control over the IC so that he can stop the “corrosive and damaging” leaks. Trump also said that the conversations with Australia and Mexico were “almost like a test.”

              In reality they WERE a test. No transcripts of the conversations were ever produced, and both Australia and Mexico denied the IC’s claims. The leakers have no access to actual information. They were set up. It’s clear that the Trump sting operation involved PATRIOTIC members of the National Security Agency (NSA) and PATRIOTIC members of the ODNI.

              It’s also clear that General Michael Flynn helped create the barium test or canary trap. The CIA hates Flynn due to his criticism of their incompetence. After the major leaks began in September of 2016, General Flynn, Trump, Pence, James Comey, and James Clapper hatched a plan to identify the leakers by giving them false information.

              Flynn had to be fired so that the leakers and the press would continue their collusion. This means that Trump has even MORE evidence of their criminality, since they didn’t immediately stop. The firing of Flynn made them overconfident and careless.

              “One down, more to go!”
              A fake trophy scalp

              Flynn was not fired against his will. For some reason people don’t understand that. I’m very surprised. Do you not grasp that Flynn CREATED this operation? The position of National Security Adviser is almost ceremonial. When the leaks began in September of 2016, it was FLYNN who crafted this sting. He hasn’t been sacrificed. Instead, he’s working behind the scenes to root out corruption in the IC.

              Today at his press conference, Donald Trump said he thinks the leaks will stop. This is because the leakers are looking at very long prison sentences. Like Tom Cruise in The Firm, Donald Trump now knows everything.

              It’s up to the IC whether or not Trump unloads his cargo of information or keeps it at sea forever.

    The immediate problem is… The Obama Admin XO providing SIGINT info to these 13 (or17) Intel agencies which are infested with “Obama Operatives”, who in turn use/leak the info.

    RATHER than worry about the XO itself, and rush to rescind it… a smarter move (by Trump) may be to keep it in place, but with the info going to Trump Operatives. The urgency is in hunting down and removing the Obama loyalists, but they may well have overplayed their hand far too soon. The hornets nest stirred up by the political assassination of Flynn and the ensuing investigation may well lead to Obama people removed, fired, even imprisoned.

    Just like Harry Reid’s “Nuclear Option” in Senate being shortsighted… expedient when enacted, but then in place still for his opposition.. so too this XO designed to help the Obama Shadow Admin may in turn bite him on the bum when available to Trump loyalists.

    When the enemy is charging toward you, do you charge forward as well?

    Would it not be better to flank the enemy on both sides and the rear so that they are destroyed because they think your totality of force is in front of them?

    When you know that there is an ambush waiting ahead, do you send your entire force?

    Sometimes, what appears to be something is a misdirection so that you can close the steel trap on the enemy and cut them off and thereby destroy them.

    Flynn is gone from the public site from the administration. The trap has been set and soon the jaws will snap shut, beheading the beast and burning the carcass.
