National Security Advisor Gen. Michael T. Flynn (ret.) — who resigned Monday — was the victim of a “hit job” launched by intelligence operatives, Obama government holdovers and former Obama national security officials, according to former intelligence officials who spoke with The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.Flynn didn’t help himself much either when he foolishly failed to fully brief VP Mike Pence and thereby exposed him to ridicule in the partisan media who played their part in this staged managed soap opera.
The talk within the tight-knit community of retired intelligence officers was that Flynn’s sacking was a result of intelligence insiders at the CIA, NSA and National Security Council using a sophisticated “disinformation campaign” to create a crisis atmosphere. The former intel officers say the tactics hurled against Flynn over the last few months were the type of high profile hard-ball accusations previously reserved for top figures in enemy states, not for White House officials.
“This was a hit job,” charged retired Col. James Williamson, a 32-year Special Forces veteran who coordinated his operations with the intelligence community.
Noting the Obama administration first tried to silence Flynn in 2014 when the former president fired him as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Williamson called Monday’s resignation, “stage Two of ‘Kill Mike Flynn.”
Economic Systems: The alarmists of Global Warming punditary keep telling us of their concern about global warming and how it is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that meme is not true and that there has been a concerted global agenda in play, within the Progressive polity over the past couple of decades, to use the Global Warming meme as a stalking horse to bring down Western economic systems. A senior United Nations official has now openly confirmed this long held suspicion. In the past we have had individual climate scientists make the same claim, even former members of the IPCC, but never has a senior member of a UN specialist agency tasked with administering the climate change agenda, been so candid and truthful.
At a news conference in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted openly under questioning, that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism. This brief moment of clarity and truth surprised those delegates present with its openness and honesty. Then in case this open admission was widely reported outside the ranks of Progressive climate activists, the ranks immediately closed and the whole event was conveniently swept under the rug, with little media exposure from a terminally partisan Main Stream Media.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
Writing in Bloomberg News today, Eli Lake comes to a similar conclusion and adds a good deal of background in a fine piece of reporting. Flynn, he concludes, was just the appetiser: the knives are now out for President Trump. The fake news media is in a feeding frenzy, including this attack on Kellyanne Conway and this bill of indictment of the Trump Administration from the Washington Post. Without full access to all of the facts one can’t evaluate the White House decision to let Flynn go, but the practical result of the decision will be to escalate attacks on the Trump White House, not reduce them. The Elitist Establishment, of the DNC, Beltway pundits and elements of the RNC, is a wounded beast fighting for its existence in the era of the ‘non-politician. This is a take-no-prisoners, no-quarter-asked-or-given war.
How come no-one is accusing NSA Director Michael Flynn of taking bribes from Turkey’s dictator Recep Erdogan? Not long ago, they did. Last November 18, Commentary Magazine’s Noah Rothman called Flynn a “dubious choice” for the National Security Council because his consulting company had a Turkish client, adding that Flynn’s views on Turkey raised a “conflict of interest.” Flynn had published an article in The Hill on Nov. 8 warning that America’s dalliance with the messianic Turkish Islamist and alleged coup plotter Fethullah Gulen might undermine the country’s relationship with NATO, at a time when Russia was giving Turkey the full-court press.
The latest fake news climate story has the winning headline: “Scientists are frantically copying US climate data fearing it might vanish under Trump <https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2016/12/13/scientists-are-frantically-copying-u-s-climate-data-fearing-it-might-vanish-under-trump/?utm_term=.ca2c51e3a6df> .”
This is brazen, hilarious and spectacularly misleading. No one has done more damage to “climate data” in the past three decades than the corrupt, politicized activist scientists who are now afraid that they may be neutered or booted out of office by the incoming administration.
One of the many shocking revelations of the 2009 Climategate emails was that in some cases the raw temperature data had been destroyed or lost by the scientists whose job it was to maintain it. The notorious Dr. Phil Jones of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia admitted that they had not kept “the original raw data” for reasons of “data storage availability”.
That, in turn, prompted a lawsuit <http://www.nytimes.com/gwire/2009/10/14/14greenwire-scientists-return-fire-at-climate-skeptics-in-31175.html> by the Competitive Enterprise Institute:
Progressive elites cling to their global brands against resurgent patriotism.
Those marching, rioting and denying free speech throughout the Western world see themselves as the revolutionary resistance to an oppressive establishment. They couldn’t be more mistaken, they are not revolutionaries, they are reactionaries.
The “resistance” is the outward manifestation of the ire of the progressive elites. Actors posturing at award ceremonies, billionaire internet entrepreneurs and investors, media moguls and business corporations; they are lashing out at the popular revolt against their rule and influence. The revolution has already happened, in June and November when the Brexit and Trump insurgents won. What we are witnessing is a reactionary counter-revolution.
Today’s protests are the reaction of an establishment which sees its power beginning to slip away and lashes out. The demographic most opposed to the people’s insurgency are the cultural elite who attempt to silence opposition and whip up their useful idiots by overwhelming media manipulation.
