What’s the Lesson from General Flynn’s Case?

The information that has been released from the FBI files on the Flynn case and the House Investigation of the Russia probe is surprisingly clear.  When subjected to the light of day there is no way to disguise the fact that federal law enforcement personnel at the highest levels deliberately conspired to railroad President Trump’s National Security Advisor out of office and into a criminal conviction.

There was no legal justification for this but they figured out a way to blackmail Flynn into it.  And they did it because they figured once they had stripped Flynn away from the new President, they could use the Russia hoax to get a special prosecutor appointed and use that office to attack the new administration in concert with the press and the deep state.  If that isn’t treason, I don’t know what is.

Contemplating that the Justice Department of the United States felt no hesitation to commit these acts during the commencement of a new Presidential Administration surely should give any American pause when considering whether his own constitutional rights are secure in the United States.  Other than unimportance what makes me think that the FBI would hesitate for a millisecond before dragging me down to one of their interrogation rooms and providing me with an even less favorable choice than the one they gave General Flynn.  Imagine that an unaccountable government goon tells you that either you will plead guilty to a crime you didn’t commit, that could earn you ten years in prison or your son will be prosecuted and imprisoned for an even longer period.

In the last twenty years we have grown accustomed to the diminution of our freedoms in the name of greater security.  In an alleged effort to keep Islamic terrorists from blowing up our planes every old grandmother in a wheelchair is subjected to indignities and all of us have to submit to complete surveillance of our every financial transaction and personal communication of all kinds.  Of course, that hasn’t stopped obvious foreign terrorists from striking at every level of American life.  And when it happens, we have to listen to harangues explaining how it’s our bigotry that inspired the violence.  But we acceded to the indignities and accepted the surveillance.

But now we find that the security apparatus is our new master.  All pretense that we are free men has been ended.  The FBI has the means to incriminate us using these new extra-constitutional powers.  And worse, they have the will to do it too.  Well, I’m sorry.  I no longer care whether the FBI is protecting me from Islamic terrorists or roving bands of cannibals.  I want them gone.  I want the President’s highest priority to be firing every last idiot with the letters FBI emblazoned across his stupid windbreaker.  I don’t even care if the Russians, the Chinese and the North Koreans steal the gasoline out of my gas tank and the chimney off my house.  At least they won’t be able to haul me off to the gulag for failing to genuflect to Comrade Obama and his dictatorial thugs.

The FBI from its beginnings has spied on the American people.  It has spied on our leaders and it has used this spying to blackmail and coerce the government into doing its bidding.  That is too dangerous a tool for our country to possess.  It seems to me that the Justice Department already has plenty of employees.  It needs to be dismantled.  It needs its fangs pulled.

That is a tall order.  It’s doubly so because the Attorney General, Bill Barr wouldn’t dream of extracting the jewel in the crown of his department.  I’m not even sure he’ll clean out the viper’s nest that is responsible for the outrage they perpetrated against this country.  If Barr and Durham had any sense of proportion, they would know that their precious FBI is a worse curse than the COVID-19 epidemic or the September 11th Attack.  What he should do is have a press conference where he apologizes to the American people for the organized crime cartel that he’s perpetrating on the rest of us.  He should fire everyone in the bureau from the top down until he finds someone who’s willing to expose the plot that we’ve lived through for the last four years.  That’s what he should do.  And then the President should demand Congress draft legislation to revoke the Patriot Act.  And if they won’t he should have his Solicitor General petition the Supreme Court to find it unconstitutional.  If the Congress squawks about that tell them to work on a constitutional amendment.  That should keep them busy for about twenty years.

Anyway, this rant is to say that it’s clear we now live in a police state.  It’s run by the FBI with additional surveillance provided by the tech companies.  In 1984 Orwell named the security agency in his dystopia “The Ministry of Love.”  If we know what’s good for us, we’ll make eliminating the Ministry of Love our highest priority.  At the very least, prosecuting all the Obama apparatchiks should be a survival reflex for the Trump Administration.  These people are hell bent on destroying a free society.  With them having a strangle hold on our government this truly is an Orwellian nightmare.  I think I’d prefer to live under a simple dictatorship.  At least it would be easier to figure out the rules.

Recommended On-Line Article – “Abolish CIA & FISA” by Angelo Codevilla

Claremont Institute’s on-line magazine American Mind has had several good articles in the last few months.  I am always interested in Angelo Codevilla’s thoughts.  In this article he argues that the dangers we face from the unfettered power that the spymasters wield is already destroying the integrity of our government.  For generations the FBI and CIA have used their power to topple foreign governments and in two cases have aimed at overthrowing a United States president, once successfully and once unsuccessfully.

This mirrors my thoughts in the recent post I wrote.  It really needs to be the Supreme Court that strikes down the FISA Courts and the President must remove the most dangerous individuals in these agencies and replace them with law abiding civil servants.  And, as I stressed before, the worst offenders need to be prosecuted and punished severely.

CTH is Going To Be Busy With the IG’s Report for a Very Long Time

Sundance over at CTH will be mining gold out of that report until long after Peter Strzok is wearing stripes in Sing Sing.  Honestly, the list of broken laws and examples of political bias are endless.  Our servant masters have grown arrogant indeed.

IG Report: FBI Agent Peter Strzok Sent Weiner Sealed Indictment To His Personal Email…

 

So Now the IG’s Report Isn’t Coming Out Until 14JUN. I Feel So Used.

Another stupid week?  Doesn’t he know that he’s not only an Inspector but he’s also a General and it’s the job of a General to by gosh get it done!!!!  If this is how Horowitz runs his show I expect there will be clowns in the clown car.  These people are going to drive me to devil worship.  At least the devil keeps his promises.  Wait a minute, does he?

Anyway keep your powder dry and these doofuses will get it right eventually.  Sheesh.

IG Release Date Set for June 14th – First IG Hearing June 18th…

 

On a more local note I’ve been intrigued by the general dearth of comments.  Now this is my first blog so maybe it’s how it works but I’m curious, so I have a survey poll on it.  I’ll leave it on the next few posts and I look forward to the info I get.

Trump vs. The State of the Union – Part 1

Scene1: White House West Wing, 8am, President Trump (PT) calling for Vice President Pence (VPP)

PT – Mike.  Mike.  Mike!!!  Where the hell are you Pence.

VPP –  Right here Mr. President.  I was on the phone with Ryan and McConnell.  They wanted a copy of your speech to help coordinate the standing ovations.

PT – Tell’em to forget about that bull.  I don’t want them cheering.  Tell them to keep their seats and keep quiet.

VPP – Oh no.  What are you planning Mr. President?

PT – I plan on using the speech to wake some people up and put some rats on notice.

VPP – Sir, the State of the Union speech is intended to report to the people on where we are as a nation.

PT – Well Mike, despite the fact that the economy is starting to come to life do you really think there is any reason for standing ovations?  I’m going to tell them the truth.  I’m going to talk about the FBI and the Justice Department and how they’re being run like the KGB with crooked operations targeting Americans because of who they are and not what they’ve done.  I’m gonna talk about Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.  America will love what the FBI is up to on their dime.  I’m gonna talk about McCabe and Mueller and Comey and the “Secret Society” they cooked up against me.  I’m gonna make their hair curl.

VPP – Oh good grief.  Mr. President, I’m asking you to reconsider.  You’re going to scare the American people.  We have the midterms coming up and we can’t have the electorate thinking of us as the crazy party.

PT – Look Pence, you’re gonna have to man up or I’ll have to say you have the flu and couldn’t come.  Besides this is gonna be great.  The people are gonna get this 100%.  You’ve gotta remember they’re used to seeing bureaucrats shake down citizens.  They’ll rally to me when I give them the details of the plot.

VPP – Sorry Mr. President.  I’ll do my best to keep on my game face.

PT – That’s the stuff.  Besides once Cryin’ Chuck begins weeping you won’t be able to stop laughing.  It’s that funny.  Anyway, get Sessions down here.  I was thinking that it might be fun to have the Secret Society rounded up and perp walked right during the middle of the State of the Union address.  I want to see if he can arrange that on queue from me at the podium.  Do you think it would be undignified if I had the Marine Corp Band play “Nananana Hey Hey Hey Goodbye” by Steam during their exit?

VPP – No sir, not for you.  In fact, now that I’ve heard about it, I guess even I’d be disappointed if you didn’t play it.  But to tell you the truth, now that I think about it, what about that Linda Rondstadt song that goes “You’re no good, you’re no good, you’re no good, baby you’re no good, I’m gonna say it again!”

PT – No you’re not gonna say it again.  No I prefer Steam.  It’s a classic.

VPP – As you wish sir.

PT – Exactly.

Trump vs. The State of the Union – Part 2

The Pattern Seems Established

Warning:  This is a rant.  But I’ve had it with these fools in the FBI.

There seems to be a concerted campaign to attack non-leftist groups and individuals.  Between the Scalise attack, Las Vegas and this latest leftist maniac in Texas it now seems to me past the point of coincidence or even mass hysteria.  It seems that coordination is occurring.  This doesn’t have to correspond to a team working together.  It might come down to someone online proselytizing the leftist ecosystem toward mass violence and his message resonating with a certain profile.  Each of these individuals was radicalized against traditional or anti-leftist targets.  I don’t know anything about the guy who attacked Rand Paul so I won’t speculate whether or not he is just a nutty neighbor or not.  But these other cases are different.  These are kamikaze missions, intent on maximum casualties, maximum shock value.  This is leftist jihad.

If the FBI was any use they would use the much-vaunted data collecting and intelligence capability to identify the links that join these three men.  But instead they scratch their heads and declare it a mystery.  Look at the state of the Las Vegas investigation.  All they’ve been able to confirm is that he was a white man.  Meanwhile if you had unpaid traffic tickets from four decades ago they could probably track your every step over the last forty years.  If you missed a nickel on an Amazon tax bill they would roust you out of your bed to perp walk you down to the IRS office.  If you used the term lip balm in a phone call to your doctor you’d probably be added to a terror watch list.  But after three maniacs massacred innocent Americans by the scores they can’t find anything to tell us except “we’re investigating.”

And that brings us to Jeff Sessions.  What the hell is he actually doing as Attorney General, as head of the Justice Department?  Is this the best he can do?  Is he trying to get things done but is being thwarted?  If so, why doesn’t he fire these fools?  Is recusing yourself from the Russian investigation equal to sitting on your hands and not doing a damn thing?  I think Trump should fire this guy and get someone useful in the spot.  And it’s not just these spectacular cases.  The Antifa thugs should be rounded up and treated to a RICO action.  If they aren’t organized crime and domestic terrorism I don’t know what is.

So, the question is what’s next from these creeps?  Will they be blowing up St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC just to make a point?  What does it take to clue in the authorities that radical leftist terrorism is ramping up and is just as deadly as Islamic jihad?  I mean, we expected the Obama justice department to ignore leftists and BLM when they intimidated Americans.  Those were Obama’s shock troops in the cowing of a free peace-loving people.  But we thought Trump would re-establish the rule of law and order.  It appears that is not the case, at least not yet.  But if they don’t hurry up and fix things, it’s only a matter of time before action leads to reaction and things may start to spin out of control.  And that won’t be good for anyone.
