breaking news on cnn who has been talking ad nauseum about Flynn for two days. More attacks on Trump admin. Imo, Flynn has informed Trump on many issues and he did his job for his country. Now Trump must not accept a globalist replacement. These scenarios are how the estab gets their boys in place. This must not be allowed.

National Security Advisor Lieutenant General Michael T. Flynn has resigned.  It is confusing because it looks like his
son Michael G. Flynn has resigned from the Trump Transition Team, as well.


http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/319367-national-security-adviser-michael-flynn-resigns

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigns




Flynn's future at the White House had been the topic of discussion all day, after reports that he had talked about sanctions against Russia with the country's ambassador before Trump was sworn in.

Those reports contradict his earlier comments that he never discussed the topic with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during a series of phone calls the month before Trump took office.
 
Vice President Pence stood up for Flynn in January and told CBS that Flynn never spoke about sanctions during his calls to Russia.

The New York Times reported Monday night that Pence was angry that he defended Flynn and embarrassed by the information Flynn withheld from him.

Trump was silent for most of Monday on the embattled Flynn, but press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters he was conferring with the vice president.

The Times also noted the FBI has been examining Flynn’s phone calls, while the Army looks into whether he received money from the Russian government during a trip to Moscow in 2015.

It appears the flood of damaging information that came out Monday ended the deliberations on Flynn's future in the administration.

ANTI-TRUMP INTEL BLACK HATS RESPONSIBLE FOR FAKE FLYNN CONTROVERSY - Political forces in the swamp keep the boil of controversy going regardless of the substance of the content behind it.

http://www.infowars.com/anti-trump-intel-black-hats-responsible-for-fake-flynn-controversy/


Quote
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.

Flynn Resignation Raises Tough Questions for FBI, Intel Services
http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/02/13/flynn-resignation-raises-questions-fbi-intel-services/


Quote
That said, the sanctions were largely bogus, and were applied not just to punish Russia for spying on the U.S. (both countries clearly spy on each other), but to substantiate the Democratic Party’s sore-loser conspiracy theory that Russia was responsible for electing Donald Trump.

There is no concrete evidence to support that theory, and there is no evidence (yet) that Flynn did anything but discuss sanctions in the most general terms. He did not break theLogan Act, nor any other law, apparently.

Whether Flynn deliberately concealed the contents of his conversation from Vice President Pence, or merely forgot what had been said, he was “caught” because the Department of Justice had been eavesdropping on the conversation. And one of the officials responsible for ordering the eavesdropping was none other than Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who forced President Trump to fire her when she defied her duty to enforce his executive order on immigration, however, controversial.

---

Democrats are clamoring for a deeper investigation of Russian ties to Trump. But the more serious question is whether our nation’s intelligence services were involved in what amounts to political espionage against the newly-elected government.

We know that there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of federal bureaucrats already using shadow communications systems. How far does that “shadow government” go?

The FBI, CIA and other agencies ought to reassure Congress, or come clean.

As we know from Edward Snowden, EVERYTHING, every email, every phonecall, every SMS, every tweet, remotely activated videos from laptops and cellphones, photos from private family events, shopping lists, anything put up on the cloud server, EVERYTHING is being collected and stored at the NSA database in Utah.

That leaves NO exemptions. If you love surveillance, as Trump has stated, you have to expect it's loving you too.

And, if you have antagonized the intelligence community, as Trump has done, you can expect to be on their list of antagonists... and ripe for plucking. Trump has to be careful not to hold meetings with state officials, and discuss state business in public. That further compromises him, and his enemies will JUMP on that as a rationale to further discredit him.

I chalk it up to his natural affinity to discuss business over 'lunch' - a holdover from his many years as CEO. He's got to drop the CEO stuff; he's not in that position anymore, although his skills as a CEO may be very useful to him - negotiating deals etc. - he's got a massive many-headed beast that he's got to deal with now, and he can't forget that he's not a dictator (CEO), but has to manage among many who have their own agendas. Corporations have a "mission statement" that all executives and employees must follow (that's the plan anyway), and the CEO calls all the shots. He's in a government with many mission statements: few are the same as his own.

The Manufacturing of Controversy – General Michael Flynn Edition….
https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/02/13/the-manufacturing-of-controversy-general-michael-flynn-edition/
Posted on February 13, 2017   by sundance

Anyone who has followed the deep weed construct of current U.S. politics against the backdrop of DC’s UniParty fear of President Trump can fully grasp the desperation of the professional political class to undermine the expressed purposes and intents of Trump to drain the proverbial swamp in Washington DC.

Toward that end – the myriad of vested financial and political interests, including those interests amid the corporate Mostly Swamp Media, are frantically lashing out -and latching on- to any issue that might aid the undermining objective.

   
Quote
“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones”.

This is a famous quote from Niccolo Machiavelli which acutely describes the current confluence of events.   Draining the proverbial swamp of the inherent corruption, and subsidiary corruptible influences from the entrenched benefactors, is the overriding source of the angst against the new administration.

For the media who depend on the bile in the swamp’s retention pond – to manipulate public opinion – no falsehood is out-of-bounds; no attack too severe; no rules of decency or diplomacy are considered; the ends justify all means as the war of attrition begins.

The approach from those who benefit from life amid the swamp is essentially a zero-sum outlook.  Either the parasites win, or they will have forever lost their indulgences.

Combined with the media, the aggregate interests form like swarms of frenzied piranha.  At the apex of the boil anything thrown into the mix will be devoured regardless of its political alignment.  The rabid nature of the swarm precludes the injection of logic, reason or merit; all common sense is necessarily dispatched.

The media created controversy of General Michael Flynn is a nothing-burger.

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 desperate to convince 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.

=====================================

So, here's the question...
Trump is a masterful strategizer, and MUST be aware of how the media will pounce on nothing-burger (as conservativetreehouse calls it), so what is the REAL story here? What's the real reason? I doubt it has anything to do with the 'phone calls' or what Flynn did or didn't say to Pence.
Oh... and Netanyahu arrives tomorrow to meet with Trump.
Flynn was a fervent supporter of war with Iran.
So hmm... perhaps more fervent than Israel (since they're the country at risk for a 'scorched earth' result)...
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

Michael Flynn, key Iran player, resigns just as Netanyahu arrives in Washington
http://www.jta.org/2017/02/14/news-opinion/politics/michael-flynn-key-iran-player-resigns-just-as-netanyahu-arrives-in-washington
February 14, 2017 12:04am   

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Michael Flynn, the national security adviser who emerged as a key player in President Donald Trump’s Iran strategy, resigned just as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived for his first White House summit with Trump.

Flynn quit late Monday after acknowledging that he had misled other administration officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, about a phone call he had with the Russian ambassador in December before Trump assumed office.

Flynn had denied discussing with the ambassador sanctions the Obama administration had just imposed on Russia for its alleged interference in the U.S. elections. Reports this week said transcripts of the calls compiled by U.S. intelligence showed that the sanctions were indeed discussed, and on Monday evening, The Washington Post reported that sanctions were a main topic of the call.

Law enforcement and intelligence officials feared Flynn could be subject to Russian blackmail because he had misled others about the call.

“Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador,” Flynn said. “I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology.”

The timing of Flynn’s resignation was inopportune for Netanyahu, who landed in Washington Monday night for his first meeting with Trump as president, which will take place on Wednesday.

A key agenda item at the summit will be how to confront Iran given the strictures of the deal reached in 2015 between Iran and the international community trading sanctions relief for a rollback in Iran’s nuclear program.

Top Israeli officials have already consulted with Flynn on Iran strategy, and it was Flynn who on Feb. 3 in an official statement warned Iran that it was “on notice” after it had tested a ballistic missile.

Netanyahu and Trump both dislike the Iran deal, but are seen as unlikely to kill it. Instead, top Trump figures have called for stricter enforcement of the pact.
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

PJW has an article about this. Excerpt:

Quote

The mainstream media’s sudden concern for Flynn having potentially violated the Logan Act is interesting given that establishment politicians have been violating the Logan Act for decades by physically meeting with foreign officials at Bilderberg conferences, without a whimper of dissent from the press.

As Chris Buskirk explains, when Democrats met with Russian officials, it was also treated as no big deal.

“Recall that in 1984 Senator Ted Kennedy approached the Soviet government about aid in defeating Ronald Reagan’s reelection. He offered them diplomatic and arms control concessions if they would help install Walter Mondale in the White House. Not surprisingly, Kennedy gets a pass if not a conspiratorial wink of assent from the guardians of democracy in the press. Naturally, they assume all partisans work with foreign governments to achieve their electoral aims.”

The real reason for Flynn being forced out is that he represented a direct threat to the military industrial complex that was swept aside by Trump’s victory.

Well, the emails are all now in the possession of China, Russia, and Israel, to name a few. (We don't expect for a SECOND that they didn't take advantage of piss-poor-to-nonexistent security on the gmail accounts on Hillary's servers)... they also most certainly have all of the emails on Anthony Wiener's server (Huma's perv ex), and apparently Huma had all of Hillary's stuff on Anthony's laptop.
Good stuff for blackmailing.

SO... officially,

The NYPD gave the emails to the FBI (and Comey's hanging on to them along with Scott McCabe)... and the ONLY people who can't see those emails are the american public.

That's keeping us safe, I'm sure.

I'm glad Flynn has gone. He was a rabid Iran-ophobe and couldn't wait to get the US involved in a conflagration on behalf of the state of Israel. He is a carricature who belongs in a movie such as the one referenced by my picture.

Globalists Meet at Bilderberg in Germany to Plot World's Future
...
From globalist prime ministers and extremist politicians to bailed-out mega-bankers, accused war criminals, establishment “journalists,” and unelected rulers of the European Union super-state, many of the world's most unpopular people will be there. More than a few prominent Americans will be in attendance, too, despite the Logan Act that some critics say could make their scheming a felony.

Among the U.S. attendees are multiple establishment media “journalists,” neocon warmonger Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Google boss Eric Schmidt, globalist schemer Henry “New World Order” Kissinger, disgraced former CIA boss and al-Qaeda cheerleader David Petraeus, and many more. The official list, which often leaves key attendees off, is available on Bilderberg's website.

Why the Logan Act should be repealed

by Edward A. Zelinsky   
February 6th 2017   


Congress should repeal the Logan Act. Modern, globalized communications have destroyed any remaining rationale for this outdated law. The Logan Act today potentially criminalizes much routine (and constitutionally-protected) speech of US citizens.

...
In 2008, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former President Jimmy Carter engaged in a very public interchange about Carter’s Logan-style communications with Hamas. I speculated then that Mr. Carter’s acerbic response to Secretary Rice’s criticism might have reflected his concern that his freelance diplomacy violated the Logan Act.

Modern communications have made the Logan Act unworkable ....

...
Though the Logan Act is rarely enforced, it remains on the books, potentially available to federal prosecutors. Other laws, such as prohibitions on bribery and on the misuse of confidential information, are targeted at true abuses. The Logan Act is an anachronism in an era of modern communications and travel. The Logan Act should be repealed.


Edward A. Zelinsky is the Morris and Annie Trachman Professor of Law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva University. He is the author of The Origins of the Ownership Society: How The Defined Contribution Paradigm Changed America. His monthly column appears on the OUPblog.

“You call them leaks. It’s a criminal act. This is a crime.
It’s not just a wink and a nod,” Flynn said


EXCLUSIVE:
In Final Interview, Defiant Flynn Insists He
Crossed No Lines, Leakers Must Be Prosecuted

RICHARD POLLOCK - 02/14/2017

In the final hours before his resignation, now-former White House National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn said he “crossed no lines” in his discussion with Russia’s ambassador, but ultimately he was most concerned about the steady stream of leaks to reporters based on classified information.

“In some of these cases, you’re talking about stuff that’s taken off of a classified system and given to a reporter. That’s a crime,” Flynn told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group during a telephone interview from his White House office on Monday.

“I haven’t been fighting back because I’m not that kind of guy. I’m behind the scenes. I’ve always been behind the scenes. But this is ridiculous. It’s so out of control. I’ve become an international celebrity for all the wrong reasons.”

Flynn said he didn’t know where the leaks originated. “One has to wonder, ‘Are they coming out of people in the National Security Council? Are they coming out of people in the intel community? Or State? Or Defense?'”

.... Flynn said there was a brief discussion of the 35 Russian diplomats who were being expelled by Obama in retaliation for Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 campaign.

... “There does appear to be a well-orchestrated effort to attack Flynn and others in the administration,” said Nunes, who is a California Republican. “From the leaking of phone calls between the president and foreign leaders to what appears to be high-level [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court] information, to the leaking of American citizens being denied security clearances, it looks like a pattern.”

“It wasn’t about sanctions. It was about the 35 guys who were thrown out,” Flynn said. “So that’s what it turned out to be. It was basically, ‘Look, I know this happened. We’ll review everything.’ I never said anything such as, ‘We’re going to review sanctions,’ or anything like that.”

Seems like the secret college(secret gangsters) were gonna oust Flynn one way or the other. It's sad to see Trump let Flynn go so easily in which I knew if trump was for real, he would have kept Flynn regardless of the insignificant leaks that were portrayed as 'conspiring with Russia' narrative that was absurd to believe.

Its time to start criminally charging these leakers and use them as an example. Drain the swamp of anti-American misfits and criminals in government! If they can use tech to spy on you, then you can use the same to root them out. Unacceptable!

The Political Assassination of Michael Flynn

NATIONAL SECURITY
The Political Assassination of Michael Flynn
1548FEB 14, 2017 10:09 AM EST
By
Eli Lake

If we are to believe the Trump White House, National Security Adviser Michael Flynn just resigned because he lied about his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the vice president. As White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway told NBC's "Today Show" on Tuesday: "Misleading the vice president really was the key here."

....

There is another component to this story as well -- as Trump himself just tweeted. It's very rare that reporters are ever told about government-monitored communications of U.S. citizens, let alone senior U.S. officials. The last story like this to hit Washington was in 2009 when Jeff Stein, then of CQ, reported on intercepted phone calls between a senior Aipac lobbyist and Jane Harman, who at the time was a Democratic member of Congress.

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. 

In the past it was considered scandalous for senior U.S. officials to even request the identities of U.S. officials incidentally monitored by the government (normally they are redacted from intelligence reports). John Bolton's nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations was derailed in 2006 after the NSA confirmed he had made 10 such requests when he was Undersecretary of State for Arms Control in George W. Bush's first term. The fact that the intercepts of Flynn's conversations with Kislyak appear to have been widely distributed inside the government is a red flag.

...


Flynn was a fat target for the national security state. He has cultivated a reputation as a reformer and a fierce critic of the intelligence community leaders he once served with when he was the director the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Barack Obama. Flynn was working to reform the intelligence-industrial complex, something that threatened the bureaucratic prerogatives of his rivals.

He was also a fat target for Democrats. Remember Flynn's breakout national moment last summer was when he joined the crowd at the Republican National Convention from the dais calling for Hillary Clinton to be jailed.

In normal times, the idea that U.S. officials entrusted with our most sensitive secrets would selectively disclose them to undermine the White House would alarm those worried about creeping authoritarianism. Imagine if intercepts of a call between Obama's incoming national security adviser and Iran's foreign minister leaked to the press before the nuclear negotiations began? The howls of indignation would be deafening.

In the end, it was Trump's decision to cut Flynn loose. In doing this he caved in to his political and bureaucratic opposition. Nunes told me Monday night that this will not end well. "First it's Flynn, next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus," he said. Put another way, Flynn is only the appetizer. Trump is the entree.

And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

America's spies anonymously took down Michael Flynn. That is deeply worrying.
https://theweek.com/articles/680068/americas-spies-anonymously-took-down-michael-flynn-that-deeply-worrying

The United States is much better off without Michael Flynn serving as national security adviser. But no one should be cheering the way he was brought down.

The whole episode is evidence of the precipitous and
ongoing collapse of America's democratic institutions —
not a sign of their resiliency.
Flynn's ouster was a soft coup (or political assassination)
engineered by anonymous intelligence community bureaucrats.


The results might be salutary, but this isn't the way a liberal democracy is supposed to function.

Unelected intelligence analysts work for the president, not the other way around. Far too many Trump critics appear not to care that these intelligence agents leaked highly sensitive information to the press — mostly because Trump critics are pleased with the result. "Finally," they say, "someone took a stand to expose collusion between the Russians and a senior aide to the president!" It is indeed important that someone took such a stand. But it matters greatly who that someone is and how they take their stand. Members of the unelected, unaccountable intelligence community are not the right someone, especially when they target a senior aide to the president by leaking anonymously to newspapers the content of classified phone intercepts, where the unverified, unsubstantiated information can inflict politically fatal damage almost instantaneously.

IMO, It's all the thugs in government (rogues who sit in the State Dept, intel agencies, etc) who want Russia to be the boogeyman who are behind this disruption! Just listen to the liars in the media "Russia, Russia, Russia".

The media has sunk to a new low as they go along with the baby Dems and their handlers in trying to pick off every top person in Trumps administration.

There is a war WITHIN THE HALLS OF GOVERNMENT by rogues (both parties) who have been planted there through several administrations, and they must be weeded out and brought to justice. THEY ARE THE PROBLEM AND ARE TRYING TO DESTABILIZE THE US GOVERNMENT BY ATTACKING TRUMPS ADMIN. THIS CAN NOT BE TOLERATED!

Don't believe me. Look it up yourself!

Trump and the law
Discussion ponders how legal issues will play out in new administration
November 23, 2016
...
Outside the courts, Democrats and congressional Republicans opposed to some Trump initiatives could consider pending legislation or take new action to rein in his administration, though Vermeule thinks such a move would be unlikely to succeed.

...

Four major signposts during the first 100 days will show whether the Trump administration will transform executive authority or not, said Cass Sunstein,
the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard.

...

Examining the steps that Trump takes in his first 45-60 days to review the nearly 2,000 regulations that Obama instituted as president will also be instructive. While most shifts are “not likely to raise partisan hackles,” there are some that already have moved or could move into Trump’s line of fire, such as rules on food safety, fuel economy, and energy efficiency. “Is there going to be a wholesale effort to undo the not terribly partisan, but for some Republicans, concerning aspects of the Obama regulatory legacy?” he said. “We’ll know very quickly.”
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Democrat accused of generating 'FAKE NEWS' after reading tweets from Flynn parody account
A LEADING Democrat's attempted attack on Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn backfired spectacularly after she read out a tweet from him in a conference - which turned out to be completely false.
http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/767758/democrat-nancy-pelosi-michael-flynn-fake-news-parody-tweet

Nancy Pelosi falsely said that General Flynn had described himself as a “scapegoat” in the blunder.

The embarrassing gaffe comes after the tweet was posted from a parody account.

She said: “The tweet of General Flynn today was ‘scapegoat’. Do you know what a scapegoat is?
