Much is being said about Trump’s NSA head, Mike Flynn, and the recent past, the politics within the WH, and now, some of what might be going on. A bit of it is from this; If I am channel surfing and pass by Fox News, I’ll click back if Dr. Sebastian Gorka is on – I like what he says and how it says it. One also has to respect his background as well. He had this to say (reformatted, emphasis mine for all the snippets, and with some other links, this post could go on for a bit and STILL not capture all of this issue but a basic taste, sure):
“I can’t comment on what was said, or what wasn’t said, on those telephone calls even though the good general himself says that he can’t remember all the details,” Gorka said. “All I can tell you is my personal experience. I spent several months working very closely with General Flynn and the transition team, in his National Security Council transition team. He’s a man you would trust with your life. He’s a great patriot, man of honor, worn the cloth of the Republic.
“The bottom line is, he shook things up in the DIA, and there are a lot of people who want to take revenge on him. Names I’m not going to list across the airwaves right now, but people who do a little bit of research can work out. The Establishment doesn’t like General Flynn, and for me, that’s a good thing,” he told SiriusXM host Alex Marlow.
Marlow proposed that Flynn was but the latest target of the Left’s “pick a target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it” strategy, as defined by Saul Alinsky in Rules for Radicals.
And he comes out with a list of who the Left, the Obama sycophants and embeds, and the denizens of the Deep State that believe THEY are the Government no matter who is in elected office – and there’s a catch:
“You’re absolutely correct,” Gorka said. “Whether it’s Steve Bannon, whether it’s Stephen Miller, whether it was Monica Crowley, or whether it’s General Flynn now. Important point for the listeners, and this is what has to be grasped: it’s never about the issues. It’s not about Russia, it’s not about the safety of Americans, it’s not about preventing attacks like Paris or Nice happening in America. It’s the triangulation. We have to isolate and take down the individuals, separate them from their community, pillory them, and then just make their position untenable. It’s classic Alinsky, and I’m sorry, they’re just picking on the wrong guy, because this guy is as hard as nails.”
In the end, however, we all know what happened in that Flynn resigned last night. Another reporter says pretty much the same thing.
5. “All of the recording that are out there and the release of those transcripts were things that were done before the Trump Administration took their leadership on the 20th of January so there is no question the recordings were done in the old (Obama) administration, no question the transcripts were made from the old administration, the question is who leaked it out. It is our understanding that this was starting the trickle out before the swearing in (of President Trump) even occurred, that would tell me the old administration was targeting the new (administration).” —Senator Lankford on why he believes members of the Obama administration were behind releasing the recordings & transcripts of General Flynn’s conversations with the Russian Ambassador
6. This is a big story. Steve Bannon is furious with BREITBART, the alternative website he used to manage. Yikes! I would not want Steve Bannon angry with me. Bannon, who was executive chairman of Breitbart before becoming Donald Trump’s chief strategist, slammed the right-wing website on Wednesday for a report suggesting that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus might lose his job. “Not upset – livid,” is how Bannon described his feelings about the article to CNN. “The story is totally untrue. Reince is doing a great job. I couldn’t ask any more from a partner.” Breitbart’s story alleged that Priebus might be pushed out of the White House due to the forced resignation of Trump’s National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn. It cited “multiple sources close to President Trump.” When asked if he had spoken with Breitbart prior to the story’s publication, Bannon said he had “totally cut ties” and hadn’t talked to them since leaving the organization last August. (He was however interviewed by the site’s “Breitbart News Daily” radio program late last year.
Former CIA analyst and retired U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer told FOX Business Network to be careful what they ask for. Democrats want an investigation into the Mike Flynn phone calls with Russia.
