We are 25 days in and as declared on SNL this week, “I want one day without a CNN alert that scares the hell out of me!”
Michael Flynn “resigned” last night. I, of course, have no insight into discussions that likely occurred inside the WH administration but I imagine this was a planned and welcomed announcement.
Don’t know who Mike Flynn is? Well he was DT’s National Security Advisor. Yup, the same guy who coined “Lock Her Up” at the RNC convention last summer (the irony is thick here). He was also responsible for Pizzagate, a lovely little twitter/defamation of character/business slander/public safety issue, type of tweet.
Here’s Flynn’s tweet from Nov 2016, this is after FBI Director Comey’s interference and resurgence of HC email controversy (gosh, remember when people had their panties in a bunch about uninteresting emails) :
U decide – NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes w Children, etc…MUST READ! https://t.co/O0bVJT3QDr
— General Flynn (@GenFlynn) November 3, 2016
This links to an blog post (that he used as a credible news source) from True Pundit with a catchy headline about “..New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes with Children, Child Exploitation, Pay to Play, Perjury”. Yup, it did not matter that it was not real or that it was just plain ridiculous—and don’t even get me started on the HC email scandal (DT’s android phone, unsecured servers and twitter account is topic for another day). The Pizzagate issue was further complicated by the fact that a gunman did go into a pizza parlor, Comet Ping Pong Pizza in Washington, and opened fire claiming his actions were a result of this conspiracy theory. Flynn’s son, his Chief of Staff, eventually lost his job–wait for it, because he tweeted after the event that there may be truth in the conspiracy theory. “Really, you can’t make this $*** up” is the common theme of this entire election and presidency.
Anyway, now you get a sense of the man, a man in charge of National Security who gives credence to fake news and seems to have no qualms using social media to advance ridiculous conspiracy theories. It should be no surprise to you that this is the same crony who contacted the Russian Ambassador after Obama imposed sanctions on Russia once it was determined Russia did have involvement in the US elections and therefore the outcome. When questioned Flynn claims he does not remember talking about the sanctions, but he can not deny the claim. How dumb does he think we are? Honestly, he reaches out to Russia and Putin’s threat to take actions as a result of the new sanctions disappear because Putin claims he was refraining from retaliation because he wanted to wait for DT to be in office. Of course, he wanted to wait for his puppet to be in office. This resulted in a public love-fest where DT then announces via tweet, of course, “Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!” I must note that this public display of affection for Putin was followed a day later by a “gracious” New Year’s Day Tweet where DT calls the majority of Americans enemies. Praising Putin one day, calling the majority of the US enemies the next…well, you can’t make this **** up.
Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!
At this point, you may need a laugh. Click HERE to hear Mark Hamill (yes, the actor from Star Wars) read this New Year’s Jeer in The Joker’s voice. It is not to be missed.
So, where does that leave us? Yes, with Mike Flynn who would have you believe that Pence and DT—and the rest of the administration had no idea that his discussion with the Russian ambassador days after the US imposes sanctions on Russia for election tampering, Putin’s public refrain from retaliation, DT’s Praise of Putin, and the $*** show we have now are all unrelated…..PLEASE! or in DT fashion, SAD!
