The anti-Flynn ‘deep state’ coup – spelling it out in the clearest way possible

from The Saker

Okay, my sense is that a large number of commentators are misunderstanding the nature of what is going on.  So, this time, rather than writing an analysis, I will spell it out, ‘talking points’ – style and, hopefully, do a better job about making my point.  So, here we go.

  1.  THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN.  Let me repeat that once more.  THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN!!!  Please don’t come and tell me that Flynn was wrong on Iran, on Islam or on China.  I agree.  But,

    ==>>THIS IS NOT ABOUT FLYNN!!!<<==

  2. THIS IS ABOUT POWER.  As in, who is boss?  Who is number one?  Who is the alpha dog?  The President or the ‘deep state’?  That is what this is all about – showing everybody who is in charge.
  3. FLYNN WAS A SYMBOL.  He was the symbol of the entire notion of draining the Washington swamp, which is mostly the 3 letter agencies + Pentagon anyway.  Flynn was the guy who dared defy the thought police and be friendly with the Russians.  Flynn was the man who wanted to bring the CIA and JCS back under White House control.  And Flynn was the guy with contacts with SOCOM and JSOC.  Flynn had to be brought down.
  4. FLYNN WAS ALSO A CORNERSTONE.  For better or for worse, it is absolutely evident that Flynn was the brain behind Trump’s entire foreign policy.  On some stuff Flynn was great (Russia), on some stuff he was okay (Takfiri terrorism), on some stuff he was ridiculous (China) and on some stuff he was terrible (Iran).  But that is not what matters here.  Listen to Kucinich who clearly says that this is not about Trump or Flynn, but about a coup against the Presidency by the US ‘deep state’.  Now that Flynn has been brought down, there is no “Trump foreign policy” left…

Trump: Intelligence community giving out classified information to press ‘like candy’

from RT

US President Donald Trump has criticized the US intelligence community for allegedly leaking classified information to the media, responding to the latest report on alleged communications between his campaign aides and Russian intelligence agents.

Trump tweeted that information is “being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community,” wondering whether the NSA and FBI could be behind the leaks.

In a later post, he said it was “very un-American” that classified information “is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy.”…

Says the fake left: “Oh PLEASE CIA, Use your Special Super Powers and Save Us from Democracy!!!”

by Scott Creighton

So the fake left like CNN, MSNBC, Glenn Greenwald and Cenk “what’s his face” from the Young Turks think it’s just peachy keen for the CIA to be interfering in the political process here in the states. They prefer allowing Capitalism’s Invisible Army to dictate foreign policy to our elected leaders? Is that how fucked our system has become? The fake left cheering for the CIA destabilizing American democracy?


Didn’t I just write about this today?

Neoliberal News of the Day: President Trump Forced to Fire Flynn… and Hire CIA-linked Abraxas Executive Gen. Keith Kellogg

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: see update at end of article

(Hi folks. I’m still sick but recovering a bit. Didn’t even turn the computer on yesterday. Thanks for all the well wishes on the other thread.)

The rabid ankle-biting yip-dogs that are the unDemocratic Party these days are currently engaged in a feeding frenzy.

They were able to get Mike Flynn to resign due to his communications with the Russian ambassador that took place around the same time the war-mongering/Red Baiting, New McCarthyite Obama administration was imposing new sanctions on Russians for “hacking our democracy”.
