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…

  1. Thanks for this analysis! I didn’t really know what to make of it.

  2. Research that author, he maybe disinfo. And don’t forget, both sides of this may have been scripted well in advance. This maybe more about information war and memes than anything else.

    • Yeah, the bit about Flynn being the one-man-band foreign policy guy seems kinda suspect. And if Flynn was such a super genius that was going to rein in CIA and JCS, why didn’t he anticipate being spied on himself?

  3. Each day that passes, I have a new and fresh reason to hate fake leftists. I mean “pacifists” who are angry that Trump doesn’t constantly threaten to go to war with Russia. I mean the clowns who claim to be “pro-Muslim-refugee,” but who cheer for wars that create refugees. I mean the maggots who demand federal funding for abortion clinics, but who are okay with high infant mortality, child poverty, and all other aspects of neoliberalism. I mean people like Bernie Sanders, who calls Hugo Chavez a “dead communist dictator.” I mean people like Chomsky, Elizabeth Warren, and so on. I mean militant Jews who pose as “progressives,” but who are fanatically right-wing regarding Palestine. I mean idiots who shriek if you use the ‘N’ word, but who support institutionalized racism.

    Liars and hypocrites, one and all.

    • Are you saying Flynn is a fake leftist?

      • By “fake leftists” I mean all the “progressives” who are saluting the Deep State and its victory.

        • To be clear, I was no fan of Flynn, but I also hate the “progressives” who are now saluting the entrenched bureaucrats. I mean the “progressives” who are praising members of the Deep State, which constantly pushes for more wars, more neoliberalism, more inequality, and more dollars for military contractors.

    • I agree with you.

    • So what about the hordes of congresspeople who pander to hard-line right wingers who’d like to see legal abortion gone, yet also have a problem with birth control? It’s the Republicans who are the ones to attack the budget by gutting social services first. Texas has seen its maternal mortality rate increase in the last few years by enacting stringent restrictions on clinics like Planned Parenthood that serve poorer women. The legislature (Republican dominated) also outright refused to take federal monies to expand Medicaid funding for people who couldn’t afford insurance. That’s just sick.

      The Democrats are far from perfect and serve the corporate state, too, but the modern Republican ethos is just heartless. I guess the difference is that the latter don’t try to hide it as much. I suppose that makes them better somehow? Right now, Republicans have the majorities in every branch of government and brook no dissent. I’m not going to roll over and be obsequious. I have problems with both parties, but I know my beliefs, which do not line up in any way with right-wingers. I’ll reserve my ire for them.

  4. Good to see Dennis Kucinich speaking again.

  5. Ranchers will use an electric cattle prod to get cows moving in a certain direction, but the Deep State bastards use mental prods to keep people scared and moving in a certain direction so they can control us. Like always repeating that Russia is behind every foul deed on the planet, when it’s actually the USA, so people will beg the fuckers to save us from what those assholes are doing and blaming the insanity on the Rooskies and al CIA Duh.

    It’s like that saying, A sheep can be sheared many times, but butchered only once.
