Is This The End Of The Deep-State-Sponsored “Anything Goes, Nothing Matters” Culture?

Slouching Towards Resolution

The people of this land have enough trouble in mind – what with livelihoods, careers, businesses, marriages, hopes and dreams circling the drain in the new insta-depression – but let’s hope they have just a little attention left over for the whirlwind denouement of the odious RussiaGate affair, now finally shredding the last defenses of the Deep State’s rogue Intel forces after years of deceit, treachery, and juridical depravity. The beginning of the end is at hand in the malicious prosecution of General Michael Flynn, and, as that’s revealed for the criminal plot it was, all the other threads in this vast tapestry of sedition will unravel.

Why does that even matter anymore, you may wonder?

Because so many of our current troubles are mostly due to the culture of pervasive dishonesty America retreated into to avoid the mandates and rigors of reality in the 21st century. It operated in every area of our national life from the racketeering in medicine and higher-ed, to the games we played with our national debt, to the stupendous grift of politics, the futile wars we prosecuted, the idiotic gender conflict and race hustling, and, most flamboyantly, to the lawlessness around the CIA, FBI, and Department of Justice during and after the 2016 election. This was the culture of Anything Goes and Nothing Matters. It has to be defeated if we expect to go on as a credible nation.

General Flynn had been an irritant to the Obama administration in his role as chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency. He disagreed with a lot going on around him and he said so, especially the nuclear deal that was percolating with Iran. Mr. Obama canned General Flynn in 2014. Afterward, CIA chief John Brennan and DNI James Clapper put him under surveillance and played entrapment games with him, using some of the same shady characters (Stefan Halper, Richard Dearlove) who later showed up as RussiaGate players.

In early 2016, Gen. Flynn joined the Trump campaign as a foreign affairs advisor and that summer made the mistake of leading the “Lock her up,” chant to a delirious crowd at the Republican Convention. Perhaps he knew a thing or two about the activities of the Clinton Foundation. Perhaps he also knew what Jeffrey Epstein was up to. Then Mr. Trump shocked the world and won the election. Gen. Flynn was soon appointed incoming National Security Advisor. One can imagine the anxiety crackling through a Democrat-controlled Deep State on the verge of surrendering power to its enemies. The alarm bells that went off through the vast US Intel underground must have been deafening.

In a panic, the Intel Community set in motion a suite of operations to get rid of both Flynn and Trump. On December 29, late in the transition-of-power, President Obama lit up a diplomatic flare by confiscating country retreat properties in Maryland and Long Island owned by the Russian embassy and expelling 35 embassy employees, supposedly as payback for Russia “interfering in the 2016 election.” This prompted a conversation between incoming National Security Advisor Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. That cued the FBI to entrap General Flynn. The news media played along with the preposterous falsehood that high American officials should not communicate with diplomats posted to the USA. The shady gotcha interview about that with Flynn, conducted by FBI officers Peter Strzok and Joseph Pientka, has been dissected to death, so I’ll spare you that, except to say that it was carried out in obvious bad faith.

The court case over all that has dragged out for more than three years now, though anyone could see from the get-go that it was a malicious prosecution. (I said as much more than once in this blog years ago.) Presiding Judge Emmet Sullivan has overlooked flagrant misconduct by DOJ prosecutors, led by Brandon Van Grack. FBI Director Christopher Wray has concealed exculpatory evidence of FBI and DOJ misconduct that favored General Flynn for three years. General Flynn’s previous attorneys from the DC law firm of Covington and Burling ­­­­­­­­— where Mr. Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder is a partner — represented Gen. Flynn poorly, and did so apparently on-purpose. In spite of all that, the case is unraveling thanks to the diligence of Gen. Flynn’s new attorney, Sidney Powell, who cuts through government bullshit like a samurai sword through tofu.

The case is now moving swiftly to a climax, perhaps due to William Barr appointing Missouri federal attorney Jeffrey Jensen to review the matter. Someone, perhaps new Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, has pried bales of previously hidden documents from FBI Director Wray’s sweaty hands. They amount to clear evidence of a scheme to lawlessly railroad Gen. Flynn. If Judge Sullivan doesn’t dismiss the case in another two weeks, he will look like a fool and a scoundrel. He probably cares about his reputation. Any fair reading of this case would have this judge cite the DOJ lawyers for criminal contempt at a minimum.

The question arises: why has Attorney General Barr allowed this to go on and on. My guess is that he thinks the best course would be for Judge Sullivan to be forced by the weight of evidence to do his duty and move to dismiss the case against Gen. Flynn. After all, the objective is to restore the rule-of-law, and that includes getting the federal courts to operate honestly and fairly. If Mr. Barr took the extraordinary action of intervening, it would signify that the court could not be trusted, and that will not restore the rule-of-law. The same applies to a presidential pardon.

In the background looms federal attorney John Durham who has been at work for year looking into the matrix of suspicious conduct around all aspects of the RussiaGate hoax, the greatest scandal in US history. Mr. Barr has been accused of allowing quite a few culpable DOJ higher-ups to remain in their jobs this whole time,including FBI Director Wray, despite the shade thrown on them by the drip-drip-drip revelations of their misdeeds. I think both Mr. Barr and Mr. Trump have resisted the temptation to intervene in order to 1) steer clear of malign RussiaGate collaborators in Congress and the news media, and 2) for reasons similar to the process involving Gen. Flynn ­— to reestablish the regular wheels of justice and faith in the system.

RussiaGate and all its subsidiary mischief amounted to a seditious conspiracy by several agencies of government against the chief executive. It was explicitly an effort to overthrow a president by illegitimate means. The conspiracy extended to members of congress, who are not privileged with immunity against felony crimes, by the way.

The partial list of government officials, current or former, who may be subject to prosecution in these matters should include Barack Obama, Susan Rice, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, John Carlin, Mary McCord, Michael Atkinson, James Baker (DOJ), James Baker (DOD), Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Dana Boente, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Joseph Pientka, William Priestap, Bruce Ohr, Kevin Clinesmith, Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann, Aaron Zebley, Jeanie Rhee, David Lauffman, Senator Mark Warner, Senator Richard Burr, James Wolfe, Rep. Adam Schiff, Eric Ciaramella, Col. Alexander Vindman. Players outside government include Glenn Simpson, Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, Stefan Halper, Sidney Blumenthal, Cody Shearer, David Kramer. The following media figures might be named as unindicted co-conspirators: Dean Baquet, Martin Baron, Jeff Zucker, Andrew Lack, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Chris Cuomo, Joe Scarborough, David Corn, David Ignatius, and Ari Melber.

Note: The New York Times has not covered this week’s developments in the General Michael Flynn case. So, there is no record of this epic injustice in the newspaper-of-record. Therefore, it is no longer the newspaper-of-record.

  1. We have certainly waited long enough for this to come about. I hope he gets them all including Hillary and obama. I believe he is the culprit behind all of this.

  2. I wish the President would offer Gen Flynn a VERY nice signing bonus to come back to the white house. He should be given back everything he lost because of these lying bastards. After all they offer signing bonuses to athletes to join a certain team why not get this talented man to help run the country. And pay him back to boot.

  3. Been saying all along that Obama was behind it all. He had evil dealings with the depraved Iranian mullahs he needed cover for; and Brennen, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Rice were right there to do his bidding. The reason Hitlery got the nod for president in 2016 was because of Obama’s pull in the DNC and she was a shoe-in to continue his “great works” for the people (not American).

    Everything the good taxpayers have been putting up with since Trump announced his ideas of running (in 2015) have been because Obama was worried about losing his ‘legacy’, and probably his lucrative dealings with hostile nations. (How else does one gain so much wealth in our government?)

    The scapegoats (Obama’s minions) are the ones we’re seeing in the news today. We can only hope one of them survives long enough to place enough evidence in the hands of the right people; so Obama can answer for his crimes against the country he swore to serve.

    It’s ALL Obama.

    He’s the “genius” behind it ALL.

    He told us so many, many times . . . we didn’t pay attention.

    1. I saw an article where George Soros instructed Obama to get his FBI looking into the Trump campaign as a favor. This came from Obama’s ex Atty who helped Trump through the impeachment. I can’t recall his name, but he said he had documents of this meeting, couldn’t release them now because they would be needed for a future lawsuit.Obama, Killary, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, Kerry etal…were all involved.

  4. Obama Administration was nothing more than a highly organized crime family. The weaponization of our intelligence and security services has been damaged for generations, and the rule of Law to which this great nation is so committed, has been irreparably damaged as well. Flynn didn’t know when he was shaking hands and patting “Snake in the Grass” Susan Rice on the shoulder that they were already planning his demise. These parasites will rot in Hell for what for what they done to this patriot. Sua Sponte!!! God Bless 🇺🇸 & Lt. General Michael Flynn

  5. When you think of all the actions Obama took when he was president and put it all together you would have to be very ignorant not to see he was selling this country out. I blame the guilt ridden whites that felt they needed to right some kind of wrong that was done at a time in history we no longer live in. They should have looked deeper into this guy who seemed to come out of nowhere and find out what his ideology really was. They voted for him because he was black and he went on to destroy everything good about America. He will always be regarded as the worst president this country has ever seen, at least by those that can think straight.

    1. “guilt ridden whites”
      Nah, I think that’s only a small fraction of ‘whites’ and a sect of our society (guilt; for no other reason). They’re still Socialists though.
      The non-blacks who voted for Obama saw him as a way to promote their perversions into law (rump-rangers/slit-lickers). The rest are lazy slackers and beta-males who need a parental government, and saw him as their savior, and an easy-payday (freebies for life). Obama DID create a nation of dependents.
      More than half the blacks who voted for Obama only voted for him because “it’s about time we had a black President”. No concern whatsoever about his policies. The rest of the blacks who voted for him were carved-in-store, die-hard Democrats who always want Socialism and Government control of everyday life.
      To conservatives, he will always be regarded as the worst president in American history; but the liberal educators will always try to teach our young he was a saint (like FDR).

  6. This list is a pretty comprehensive grouping of the criminals involved with the attempt to overthrow the election of a president who won fairly and to nullify the votes of over sixty million Americans. One name, however, is conspicuous by it’s absence-that of madam Hillary, the author of the Trump-Russian collusion theory. When I see all of these criminals in orange jumpsuits, I will once again start to believe in American justice and the rule of law.

  7. Scare tactics have been used for decades/centuries as a means of controlling the masses. Everyone in power uses them.
    Remember the Mafia? It was used for years with them. Then the Kennedy’s came along to do battle with the Mafia. We should note…. The Kennedy’s were the elite Democrats at that time. I believe the Democrat party has taken over the Mafia & now it’s in a new refined more profitable form. However… they have the power of our government to control us in subtle ways described to appease the masses, to look like, sound like etc. that they’re actually doing us a favor.
    So why does our national debt continue to get larger? I suggest they want control of as much of our money as possible. They’ll keep spending it faster than we’re earning it if possible.
    I often wonder how many politicians/democrats have offshore accounts we’re likely to never know about.
    I began thinking about this since Trump began focusing on the differences between what we’re paying in import taxes to other countries, especially China. Seems very odd to me that Democrats want to stop Trump from tackling this problem. If Democrats are against this I have to believe they’re benefiting from it.
    Just think about the possibility of China rewarding certain politicians by depositing money in these offshore accounts. It would certainly explain why some of our politicians would refuse to try equalizing import taxes between us and other countries. It is legal to deposit money into another persons bank account here in America.
    Not many seem to have noticed how much credit card debt we have as citizens. I see it as an excuse to control us even more. Debt can actually be used to control us even more. Just pay attention to commercials on TV as examples. They sucker us into living far beyond our means and often many of us will never be completely out of debt for this reason alone. Those who declare bankruptcy screw us also. Financially responsible people will pay higher prices on the goods peddled to make up for their lost profit.
    We are brainwashed daily into believing we can have nearly anything we want using by a credit card, but they don’t and never will mention how extreme the consequences can be.
    Back in the 1800s during mining days, they had company stores where it was mandatory for employees to buy from these company stores or they lost their jobs. The same was true for their living quarters because employees also had to live in company owned quarters which they had to pay for at the company price. Government and rich people have been screwing us for many years.
    Banks use to put a limit on what we can borrow based on our income and what we owe. Credit cards have given banks a new way around this.
    Rest assured, over the long term these banks will not lose money. It has become an addiction the way we spend money as though there are no consequences. When the masses kick this addiction for spending money excessively, prices over the long term should also drop.
