Michael Flynn Exoneration Blows the Lid Off Massive Obama Scandal [Opinion]

KABOOM!

Published

Use your imagination for a minute. It is 1942. You have just been informed that your parents, always placed by you on a pedestal, have been spying for Nazi Germany. How do you respond? Let me guess. First, disbelief: my beloved parents, never. Second, anger: how dare they. Third, rage: Argghh!!! Believe it or not, you are faced with an equivalent situation today.

You have just been informed that the US government under Barack Obama, whom you placed on a pedestal, repeatedly lied, cheated, and conspired against US citizens.

Your reaction: IT ISN’T POSSIBLE! Oh yes it is.

This is not hypothetical. Thanks to a competent lawyer by the name of Sidney Powell, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has been exonerated of phony charges that he lied to the FBI. In and of itself, this is not a big deal. But in the grander scheme of things, Flynn’s exoneration is the tipping point that has blown the lid off the worst case of political corruption in American history.

In case you didn’t follow what happened, here is a short summary. Gen. Flynn, former National Security Advisor to President Trump, was accused of “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI regarding conversations with the Russian ambassador. Flynn’s travail began in 2017 as part of the Mueller investigation. Flynn pleaded guilty, resigned his post, and was scheduled to be sentenced to as much as five years behind bars. In the process, Flynn was bankrupted and his reputation was destroyed. It was a sad ending to a remarkable 30-plus-year career of service to the nation. Flynn was not the only one wrongfully targeted by the Mueller investigation in order to disrupt Trump’s presidency. The lives and civil rights of Paul Manafort, Carter Page, Roger Stone, and George Papadopoulos have suffered similar fates.

Last year, Flynn fired his tony Washington law firm and hired attorney Sidney Powell, a critic of the special counsel who believed that Flynn, like Trump, was the victim of a deep state plot, and that he had pleaded guilty only because he was coerced by overzealous prosecutors. The FBI set up what is called a “perjury trap” in which Flynn’s statement that he could not recall the conversation in question was interpreted as a lie. Lying to the FBI is a felony. Flynn denied that he had lied but entered a guilty plea when Mueller blackmailed him by threatening to prosecute his son. Flynn’s son worked in Gen. Flynn’s private intelligence firm, which Mueller was scrutinizing over its alleged failure to register with the government as a foreign agent.

Powell convinced Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea. She referred to the case as “a deliberate, malevolent, concerted effort to destroy an honest man.” Powell introduced documents that proved the entire affair was a corrupt campaign by the FBI and DOJ to destroy Flynn and his boss, President Trump. Exculpatory documents proving Flynn’s innocence were concealed by the FBI and federal prosecutors for more than three years. This week, the Justice Department responded to Powell’s defense by dropping the criminal case against Flynn.

The immediate result has been an avalanche of new evidence that the Russia collusion narrative was a complete lie from its inception, that high-ranking members of the FBI, DOJ and Obama’s inner circle—including the special counsel—knew it was a lie, and that President Obama himself was aware of and approved the effort to invalidate Trump’s election. “The collusion house of cards has finally and fully collapsed,” said Gregg Jarrett on Fox News. “The notion that candidate Donald Trump conspired with Moscow to steal the 2016 presidential election was always an implausible phantasm… The malevolent James Comey, fired director of the FBI, knew this but it didn’t deter him. He and his lieutenants sedulously stacked the cards, one by one, against Trump by exploiting the bogus allegations and pursuing an illicit investigation designed to drive him from office.”

That’s right, the government we believed in was rotten to the core. Will the American public be able to handle this revelation? What will happen now to Manafort and Stone? The question is whether the guilty parties will be brought to justice and whether we can ever again have faith in Washington. “Americans are right to be fearful of the FBI,” says Jarrett. “The agency’s chronic abuses of law and process, together with its thuggish tactics, present a frightening example of how power corrupts.” Based on newly declassified documents, those implicated in the Obama administration include James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, John Brennan, and James Clapper. They knew what was going on and participated in the corruption. Jarrett believes that the current FBI director, Christopher Wray, also is responsible for suppressing evidence pointing to the truth about the Russia collusion scam.

This attempted “coup” mounted by the FBI is without precedent. “A politically manipulated FBI is a threat to the nation,” wrote former FBI agent Kevin Brock in The Hill. “An independent FBI is and has been a blessing to the nation, and is one of the key reasons America is different from totalitarian regimes. That is why the Comey legacy must be thoroughly examined and reforms enacted as needed.”

The most damning conclusion from the newly released documents is that the guilty finger points directly at Barack Obama. President Trump said transcripts on the Russia investigation show that Obama and Biden were complicit in undermining his incoming administration. Obama presided over the illegal spying on the Trump campaign. Was the FBI assault on Flynn also at the behest of the White House? It appears that Obama initiated a vendetta against Flynn after the latter opposed Obama’s policies on Islamic terrorism. Flynn has called Obama a “weak and spineless” leader who “coddles” terrorists and has brought mayhem to our streets with his “fumbling indecisiveness,” “willful ignorance,” and “total incompetence.”

Ironically, Obama has claimed that “the rule of law is at risk” as a result of Flynn’s exoneration. What nonsense! The rule of law was kicked in the solar plexus by Obama’s effort to condemn an innocent man and take down a legitimate presidency. History will show that the major obstacle to the rule of law in the last ten years goes by the name of Barack Obama. Despite the new revelations, he probably will get away with it.

TX School Administrator Suggests Teaching ‘Opposing Viewpoints’ to The Holocaust

State level authorities were quick to shut that theory down.

Published

on

There is apparently some sever confusion in the Lone Star State regarding the nature of a new law regarding public school curriculums, and it has many around the nation alarmed.

The idea of school as a place to open your mind and absurd a variety of different viewpoints is nothing new.  In fact, it isn’t hard to argue that this is perhaps exactly what the public education system should be doing.

But there are some viewpoints out there that do not meet the standard of our civilized society, and one school administrator in Texas appears to believe that the new law requires these heinous conspiracy theories to become part of the classroom.

A top administrator with the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake advised teachers last week that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classroom, they should also offer students access to a book from an “opposing” perspective, according to an audio recording obtained by NBC News.

Gina Peddy, the Carroll school district’s executive director of curriculum and instruction, made the comment Friday afternoon during a training session on which books teachers can have in classroom libraries. The training came four days after the Carroll school board, responding to a parent’s complaint, voted to reprimand a fourth grade teacher who had kept an anti-racism book in her classroom.

A Carroll staff member secretly recorded the Friday training and shared the audio with NBC News.

“Just try to remember the concepts of [House Bill] 3979,” Peddy said in the recording, referring to a new Texas law that requires teachers to present multiple perspectives when discussing “widely debated and currently controversial” issues. “And make sure that if you have a book on the Holocaust,” Peddy continued, “that you have one that has an opposing, that has other perspectives.”

State officials were quick to point out that this is not what the new law suggests.

Clay Robison, a spokesman for the Texas State Teachers Association, a union representing educators, said there’s nothing in the new Texas law explicitly dealing with classroom libraries. Robison said the book guidelines at Carroll, a suburban school district near Fort Worth, are an “overreaction” and a “misinterpretation” of the law. Three other Texas education policy experts agreed.

“We find it reprehensible for an educator to require a Holocaust denier to get equal treatment with the facts of history,” Robison said. “That’s absurd. It’s worse than absurd. And this law does not require it.”

Some lawmakers responded as well.

State Sen. Bryan Hughes, an East Texas Republican who wrote Senate Bill 3, denied that the law requires teachers to provide opposing views on what he called matters of “good and evil” or to get rid of books that offer only one perspective on the Holocaust.

“That’s not what the bill says,” Hughes said in an interview Wednesday when asked about the Carroll book guidelines. “I’m glad we can have this discussion to help elucidate what the bill says, because that’s not what the bill says.”

Denial of The Holocaust, (or the severity of it), has long been seen as a hallmark of white supremacists, and is considered a form of antisemitism.

Laundrie Lawyer Goes on the Offensive After TV Host Implicates Parents

Someone’s getting testy…

Published

on

The story of Gabby Petito’s death has captured the attention of the nation in recent weeks, largely due to the strange circumstances surrounding her disappearance, her fiancé’s unwillingness to cooperate with police, his parents’ bizarre behavior, and then, of course the fact that he went missing just hours before Petito’s body was found.

None of these things have screamed innocence in the eyes of the Americans who’ve been following along at home, and Laundrie’s disappearance has allowed speculation to run rampant.

This is true not only for the Joe Anybody, but for television detectives as well, and this hasn’t sat well with a lawyer for the Laundrie family.

Brian Laundrie’s attorney Steve Bertolino tore into “America’s Most Wanted” creator John Walsh Thursday, the morning after the longtime TV host aired an ID channel special on the unsolved homicide of the Florida man’s former fiancée, Gabby Petito.

“Gabby Petito: ID Special Report” delved into the details surrounding the 22-year-old Petito’s slaying and Laundrie’s status as a fugitive on a federal bank fraud warrant.

Walsh has long suggested that Brian may have made a run for the border, or be hiding out on the Appalachian Trail – a place that he was once familiar with.

This is where Bertolino got testy.

“I absolutely believe that his family is helping him stay on the run,” said Walsh, who also hosts “In Pursuit with John Walsh” on ID.

Bertolino snapped back at such speculation.

“Dusty relics like that Dog and John Walsh need a tragic situation like this so they can clear the cobwebs off their names and give their publicity-hungry egos some food,” Bertolino told Fox News Digital, also taking aim at Duane “Dog” Chapman, the reality TV star and real-life bounty hunter who entered the search for Laundrie late last month.

Police have returned to the vast wilderness of the Carlton Reserve in their search for Laundrie, this time bringing K-9 units trained to detect human decomposition.
