America's spies anonymously took down Michael Flynn. That is deeply worrying.

I submit, your rival party.

Is the least of your concern.

Nameless, Faceless people are yielding tremendous power.


That's what I just heard. Rush Limbaugh calls it the "Shadow Government". The way to defeat it, and silence the Democrats, is for President Trump to put pedal-to-the-metal and FOCUS on providing every American as much prosperity as possible.

The calls were picked up as part of routine electronic surveillance of Russian officials and agents in the United States, which is one of the FBI’s responsibilities, according to the U.S. officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss counterintelligence operations.

And like I said we have no idea when the analysis of Flynn's conversations was completed and we have no idea when that analysis was provided to the Trump administration. The first time we hear that such an analysis exists is when Yates tells McGahn about its findings. At which point the President is immediately informed.

For all we know the analysis was not complete until the morning of the 26th.


We knew the FBI cleared Flynn of discusssing anything illegal during that call at least as early as when it was reported January 23.




The FBI in late December reviewed intercepts of communications between the Russian ambassador to the United States and retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn — national security adviser to then-President-elect Trump — but has not found any evidence of wrongdoing or illicit ties to the Russian government, U.S. officials said

The real question is why the deep state and their lap dog media are making such a big deal out of it weeks later?

I guesss they were upset that the Trump administration would finally provide Federal Courts with the "CIA TORTURE REPORT."

The courts request the report from Obama many times but Obama always refused.

What gives the NSA and the FBI the right to have their operatives listen in on conversations between high ranking people in the soon-to-be new Administration, and senior foreign government officials?

Our FISA court gives the authorizations for wire-tapping of foreign government officials.

This article clears up nicely how it was entirely within the intelligence community's purview to record the calls and to identify Flynn by name.

The legality of the wire-tap doesn't seem to be in question.
Who leaked word of the calls as far back as January 12th? No clue.

Knowing that acting AG Sally Yates informed the Trump administration during its first days makes her a patriot in my book.

There's no proof anywhere that confirms Yates informed anybody about anything is there.

That's a good question.

They still had at least a couple of more weeks about their 'victory' over Trumps EO.

Now they are making a big hullabalu about Flynn.

So WHAT are they trying to hide by this dog and pony show?

Sure hope someone can answer.

It doesn't matter whether or not people like Trump or not.
When government agencies are undermining the US GOVERNMENT.
THAT'S A PROBLEM.
A big one.

...and what was your response when it was reported that foreign intelligence services were meddling in the recent election, and that Trump himself was encouraging them to do so?


Trump didn't "encourage" them to do anything. He was talking tongue-in-cheek


Ah that old defense. He said it but he didn't mean it.
Laughable.

Not to mention their use of the media as their propaganda wing. The media's abuse of ethics, and their eschewing of fairness and accuracy, have sown discord among the credulous masses. This is totalitarianism.

Yes post it again.

We need the contrast.

Conflicting statements are important if they in fact exist.

On April 30, 2014, Flynn announced his retirement effective later in 2014, about a year earlier than he had been scheduled to leave his position.

He was reportedly effectively forced out of the DIA after clashing with superiors over his allegedly chaotic management style and vision for the agency. In a private e-mail that was leaked online, Colin Powell said that he had heard in the DIA (apparently from later DIA director Vincent R. Stewart) that Flynn got fired because he was "abusive with staff, didn't listen, worked against policy, bad management, etc."

According to The New York Times, Flynn exhibited a loose relationship with facts, leading his subordinates to refer to Flynn's repeated dubious assertions as "Flynn facts".

Speaking of the mainstream media as official "propaganda wings"

Fox News, Breitbart, Sinclair Broadcast Group, New York Post, Washington Times, Townhall, CBN, etc.



The US President hosted a joint conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House on Wednesday. But after a speech that covered Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Mr Trump only took questions from Christian Broadcasting Network and Townhall, two outlets widely considered to hold conservative views.

In a joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on 13 February, Mr Trump again only took two questions; one from WJLA*, a news channel found to have “a strong tilt toward Trump” during the 2016 election, and another from The Daily Caller, a conservative outlet.

On 10 February, during a media conference with the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the 70-year-old only took questions from the New York Post and Fox News.


The Independent (UK)

*WJLA is owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group (Politico article)



Donald Trump's campaign struck a deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group during the campaign to try and secure better media coverage, his son-in-law Jared Kushner told business executives Friday in Manhattan. Kushner said the agreement with Sinclair, which owns television stations across the country in many swing states and often packages news for their affiliates to run, gave them more access to Trump and the campaign, according to six people who heard his remarks.

Let's be honest here. The powers that be, the establishment, the illuminati - whatever you want to call it - did not want, and certainly did not expect, Trump to get elected.


False.

But it's okay, one day you will learn what a Rothschild is.

I'm not sure how it's worrying. If Michael Flynn didn't do anything wrong, there never would have been anything for them to take him down with.

If anything, they just did their job and ensured someone who is compromised isn't in a position of power.

"Speaking of" or merely repeating what the left-wing media says? I think it's the latter.

Left-wing media, right-wing media, the point is that all media is politically or economically aligned.
