CIA feeding the swamp with Flynn: As a legal gone-through-the-lengthy-process proud citizen of the United States, I never thought I’d live to see the day when we would have potential domestic enemies actually holding office in Congress and the Senate – BUT – here we are. You want me to name a few, I will, but first, to the nefarious business at hand.
I’ve shared many times in these pages, the story of a dear friend and acquaintance I met at a church prayer gathering one time, who, prior to leaving the confines of the CIA, was of a very sound mind and conviction. When, however, he was set free, he was ‘got to’ on one of his strolls home one day (somewhat like Andrew Breitbart actually) and was found dead. The greatest memory I have of him to this day (who, for obvious reasons, shall remain nameless) was his oft-repeated meme of “Dennis, I’ve been involved in setting up, and putting down, more governments around the planet than you could shake a stick at”.
That response alone always gave me much pause to ponder, which is why I never ventured much beyond his Vietnam days as a ‘super-sniper’ which for me was as much adventure into Geo-political-warfare as I ever wanted to tread. When asked for more details, there would be a pause in conversation, followed by a shake of the head; then by an erstwhile nod of the head to the Kalashnikov sniper rifle lodged quite artistically over his mantelpiece. Irony is today, that the new English 5-pound note bearing the serial number AK 47 xxxxxx sold for 65 thousand pounds recently.
But I digress.
The modern-day equivalent of “death by walking/driving around” of course would be the unsolved case of one Michael Hastings who reportedly (and quite confidently) was on the trail of one John Brennan (Oops! head of the gulp! CIA) and as has been well-documented, he ‘disappeared’ from this world at over 100 mph when his Mercedes went out of control and – well – ‘blew up’!
As Thomas Lifson, editor and publisher of American Thinker puts it in his piece today:
Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government. An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics. Almost certainly, its new head, Mike Pompeo, was not consulted.
Senator Chuck Schumer, of all people, laid out on January 2 what was going to happen to the Trump administration if it dared take on the deep state – the permanent bureaucracy that has contempt for the will of the voters and feels entitled to run the government for its own benefit:
New Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that President-elect Donald Trump is “being really dumb” by taking on the intelligence community and its assessments on Russia’s cyber activities.
“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”
Or, as the old rueful saying has it, “you’ve got to go along to get along.” This means that we the people had better acknowledge that the bureaucrats have turned into our masters, and the old expression “public servant” is as ironic as anything Orwell and 1984 came up with. Schumer knows this and likes it, because the deep state wants a bigger, more powerful government, just as he and his overblown ego does.
This clandestine ‘gruberment’ within the CIA, FBI, and Dept of State has existed since at least J Edgar Hoover. While the visible ‘leaders’ come and go, the invisible bureaucrat moles stay and build dossiers; everyone knows it, yet no one ever does anything about it.
These Schumer warnings about not angering the intelligence community reminds me of the J. Edgar Hoover era, where Hoover had secret files on all of the politicians to insure his power and longevity. Does Schumer have inside info from the political Washington D.C. Mafia?
The DemoMarxists cooked up this ENTIRE theme about the Russians to discredit President Trump. Every clown and lemming jumped up and down adding their two cents-worth. Hillary sells Russia half of U.S. uranium, promises a reset (overcharge), Obama has a hot mic moment and absolutely NO outcry. What else don’t we know about THEM?
Obama issues sanctions at the last minute as he’s walking out the door. Russia is furious but willing to wait to respond because Putin chooses to wait on a new administration to see what its response is.
The enemy within is still ensconced in the form of landmines left by the Obama Admin and probably some in the CIA covering their own behinds. What a monumental task President Trump has taken on! Just who he can trust will be a major question of each day.
In the meantime, DemoMarxists and their Big Left Media have become malicious in the extreme.
As Thomas Lifson puts it at the end:
This last point is critical. The entire “scandal” is based on innuendo. Flynn tripped over his own feet by misinforming Vice President Pence on the nature of his call and allowing the veep to issue a too sweeping denial of any discussion. If Flynn had said in his conversation with the Russian ambassador that we will discuss the sanctions after Trump takes office, he might well have told Pence that they did not discuss the sanctions. And the CIA leakers could have used the appearance of the word “sanctions” in their transcript to brand Pence a liar. We don’t know, and for some reason, nobody is gaining access to the actual transcripts so that we may see the content. Perhaps the congressional investigations to come will gain access. But Flynn is now gone, and media memes have been firmly planted in the public mind.
The Flynn Affair is a huge scandal, all right. But the media are misdirecting our attention toward the lesser dimension while they studiously ignore the real threat to our democracy.
What President Trump needs right now is a Political Mafia which is much stronger, more resilient, and much more loyal than the ragtag scumbag incumbents who have been inhabiting Capitol Hill for far too many years to be of any further use to the Constitutional Republic. If only the water flowing over the ailing California Oroville Dam could be metaphorically diverted to wend its way towards the cesspool that is Washington D.C. and clean it out in an instant from top to bottom and side to side.
What a glorious day that would be.
