Michael Flynn resigns as National Security Advisor

Flynn is gone, but for how long?

Michael Flynn resigns as National Security Advisor

[ Note: General Flynn might be gone, but the question remains, “for how long”. The House Intelligence Committee has opened the door for Flynn to make his own case for the record, which could see this whole thing flip around, at least in terms of did he really do something wrong, or did he just get gored here in the bull ring.

I do not say this wishfully, but only after having found his last interview before his dismissal. Here is the key part of what he said. He told the Daily Caller that the focus of his call to the Russian Ambassador:

“….wasn’t about sanctions. It was about the 35 guys who were thrown out.” …“So that’s what it turned out to be. It was basically, ‘Look, I know this happened. We’ll review everything.’ I never said anything such as, ‘We’re going to review sanctions,’ or anything like that.” “But this is ridiculous. It’s so out of control. I’ve become an international celebrity for all the wrong reasons,”

If the FBI has transcripts, as indicated in the media, we don’t know for sure not that those were shown to the President, or he got just a report. But my gut feeling is that if Flynn’s memory is correct, a statement that the Trump administration was going to review everything was nothing that Trump had not already said on the campaign trail.

And I think the obvious context for this was that the final report from the Intel communities on election interference would be part of “reviewing everything”. This could hardly be cast as any policy discussions, but simple a courtesy of announcing the obvious, “we will be talking about this after we have reviewed everything.

Putin was already on record, stating more than once, the the Trump administration would need some time to settle in, as he had not even gotten his team through the approval process. So there is no indication that the Russians where pushing to get themselves at the head of the line on Trump’s “to do”. I am not sure anyone wanted to be in that slot with a newbie White house crew.

All that said, I am waiting with baited breath for the revelations to come out now on how long Israelis and their lobby sponsors here have been doing the same thing with total immunity, meaning that no one would dare say a word about it. Now was the perfect time for U.S. media to have done so, for balance, but they did notJD ]

“Gone, but not forgotten” – We will hear more from General Flynn

–  First published …  February 14, 2017  –

Michael Flynn has resigned as US National Security Advisor after controversy surrounding his contacts with Russia.
In a resignation letter, Flynn said he held numerous calls with Russia’s ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, before President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Flynn admitted that he gave incomplete information about those discussions to Vice President Mike Pence. Last week, Washington Post reported that Flynn and Kislyak discussed the sanctions on Russia.

The report contradicted repeated denials from administration officials, including Pence, who vouched for Flynn in a televised interview. Trump has now named retired Lieutenant General Keith Kellogg as acting national security advisor.

    What does Flynn know that could jeopardize the entire RKM plan for NWO enslavement? when another general revealed the 7 countries in 5 years plan, what happened to him?
    How much pressure from AIPAC and israel can account for this?
    The NY Times has been doing a bang up job of smearing Flynn with just about every lie that can be made up concerning this incident.

    Also as stated in a article a couple of days ago, Flinn’s knowledge and logic against a thermonuke WW3 had to be dismissed to make room for Bibi’s madness and his push for WW3. Is the RKM stupid enough to think they will survive a WW3? I am not sure with so many hits to the crust of the earth it will not activate volcanos all over the world in addition to changing the axis of the earth. Puttin said it. No one will survive undamaged.
    Is Israel that powerful for the US military?

    Thanks Jim.

    To me, it just sounds like more overblown Russian “boogie man” syndrome. If I’m not mistaken, Michael Flynn had something to do with a DOD report from 2012, which clearly details US support for al Qaeda and the group formerly known as al Nusra, in Syria. The report also explained that the West and gulf state supporters of the Islamic State of Iraq, al Qaeda and al Nusra, wanted a salfist principality to be established in eastern Syria. http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Pg.-291-Pgs.-287-293-JW-v-DOD-and-State-14-812-DOD-Release-2015-04-10-final-version11.pdf

      Yes, I think I covered that back then, and will dig that older piece up to see if it is worth a rerun and update.
