    I don’t disagree with your comments, guys, but I don’t like the effect it will have on Chucky Schumer.
    Schumer will feel empowered and will try to eliminate Gorsuch.

      I really don’t believe that will work in this case.\

      Flynn must have made a MAJOR MISTAKE!

      Perhaps it is time for Chucky Schumer to resign and retire to Israel before he gets into real trouble. No need to tempt fate is there?

    The Flynn affair is being made to look like he just fell on his sword as a true patriot would do. Do we know if he was asked to resign? I’ve no doubt Pence, who had been misled, was pissed to some degree.
    Also heard reports that he hadn’t really been the organizer/director of the NSA that he should have been. Even if his ideas were worthy, perhaps he had been stuck in a job that didn’t fit him. If Trump still likes him, perhaps he’ll be used elsewhere. Personally, Abrams scares hell out of me! I’ve also heard that Petraeus is being considered.

      It would be a miracle at this point if Patraeus were even being considered. Talk about rubbing salt into the wounds.

    OOPS,,,,,,,,GOP oversight committee is not going to investigate Flynn….. counter punch in the gut of the demos…..

      But is that the intelligent thing for the GOP to do. More fuel for Left fodder.

    Well, fired by TWO administrations is quite unique to say the least. Just incompetence IMO.

    And concerning ISIS, we are still waiting for Trump’s secret plan to defeat it.

      We will defeat isis when we stop funding it for Israel. John McCain is a traitor and needs to go

      I have yet to see any evidence that the Russians did anything to affect the election.

      I don’t believe there is any.

      This was all just a ploy by Hillary and all the sick, sick people around her, to deflect attention from all the crimes revealed by wikileaks, Weiner’s seized laptop, etc.

      I was uneasy about Flynn given he had coauthored a book with neo-con Michael Ledeen. But the Saker knows a lot more than I do, so he’s given me something to think about.

      I liked that he was a maverick. There is no way America will be fixed by careerists and yes-men.

      So he told the Russians not to overreact to the sanctions, and wait for Obama’s term to end? Sounds like he did us all a favor. The Obama administration’s provocation of Russia was criminal, and criminally stupid.

    The deep state is terrified of losing their power. This attack on Flynn is just the opening round fired across the bow. The CMIC/deep state will either manage to start a war with Russia, China or Iran or will begin a civil war.

    This is deliberate, it is an attack on democracy and someone wants to destroy the US. I think they will succeed. Trump keeps getting caught off guard. The Saker piece looks pretty accurate. It’s going to get worse in a hurry.

    The Saker piece is all about fear. The battle has just started and Trump is up for the task. The Flynn resignation was a minor setback, if it was even a setback? You never know, Flynn could be used better elsewhere…

    Chartster:

    Trump should have told them to take a flying leap. It was a tempest in a tea spoon. The idea that Flynn could be blackmailed because he mentioned sanctions was simply absurd. The media is going into a feeding frenzy over nothing at all.

    Giving in to bullies never makes sense. Trump had a wonderful opportunity to tell them to piss off and he didn’t.

      Well Bob, Trump is your leader why don’t you have a chat with him and give him some good advice and bring him up to speed on some unpleasant historical truths. Bring along Doctor Alan Sabroski for good measure.

    Bob,
    It does appear to be that way, on the surface. Let’s see how it plays out. I have a hard time second guessing the brilliance of the Donald. That man is well schooled in the ways of the world.

  14. On February 14, 2017 at 12:59 pm,
    Robert Moriarty says:

    But the CMIC has been in control for the best part of 65 years. What he may have in brilliance may be overshadowed by their decades of experience in destabilizing governments. Now they are doing it to the US instead of Guatemala or Iran or the Congo.

    They sound and act like a baying mob. Mobs are dangerous.
