...about the General Flynn issue

I'm in agreement with the National Review article to which I have provided a link below. The unsubstantiated allegations about what was said by General Flynn were published in the NY TImes which is owned and run by Democrats. The alleged details of the conversation were leaked to the NYT by some one or several persons in the U.S. intelligence community but the NYTimes hasn't revealed their sources. So, really, the story can be total fabrication. Until the sources are identified, then there is no story... right up there with "fake but true". Leaking classified material is illegal. The content of the conversation is supposedly classifed information. If the New York Times can have access to the conversation details, then all Americans should have access to the details.

Please, call King, Collins, Poliquin and Pingree today and demand an end to this BS. Release the tape. Tell them you're concerned about the economy in Maine..having no jobs, collapsing tax bases in many communities, the flight of our young adults to other parts of the country for work... those are the issues they should be working on in Washington. The Russia nonsense is simply NONSENSE!

This entire episode is likely

This entire episode is likely just the beginning of Obama's campaign against the Trump presidency.

This article outlines just what took place and will probably continue until these people are replaced.

http://www.dickmorris.com/?utm_source=dmreports&utm_medium=dmreports&utm...

The Obama appointees still inhabiting the bowels of the State and Justice Departments orchestrated the coup that brought down General Michael Flynn who quit as National Security Advisor only four weeks into Trump's term.

Waiting until their confirmations as secretary of state and defense, neither Tillerson nor Sessions have had the time to replace the Obama appointees. But, in the interregnum, the Obama operatives used the time to slit Flynn's throat, Washington style.

Flynn, anxious to head off Russian retaliation against U.S. sanctions, spoke with Moscow's Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak to assuage his concerns over the sanctions imposed in the wake of Russian intervention in Ukraine and Crimea. Because he did so before Trump took office -- but after his own appointment -- he ran afoul of established protocol.

The alert Obama-era wiretappers pounced, taping the conversation and leaking it to the media. Former Obama officials were quoted in the New York Times as saying that Flynn reassured the ambassador that Mr. Trump would adopt a more accommodating tone on Russia once in office. They said that Flynn urged Russia not to retaliate against any sanctions because an overreaction would make any future cooperation more complicated." One Obama official said that "he appeared to leave the impression that it would be possible" to ease the U.S. sanctions under the new president.

Then the former Obama folks at the Justice Department chimed in, gratuitously warning the incoming president that there was a blackmail risk that Moscow might hold the fact of the conversation over Flynn's head as he served in office.

Finally, the former Obama folks at the Defense Department scrutinized a 2015 trip to Moscow by Flynn during which he received a payment to attend an anniversary celebration of a Kremlin operated TV station. The payment (it might have been a nominal gift of some sort) had to be reported because Flynn is a former general.

Essentially, the Obama team at State, Justice, and Defense acted as opposition researchers for Obama and the Democrats to frame the incoming National Security Advisor and leak his sins to the media.

Caught in the trap sprung by the Democratic operatives, Flynn, unfortunately doubled down and lied to VP Mike Pence, concealing the full extent of his conversation with the Russians. But never fear, the Obama minions helpfully provided the full text of the Flynn-Kislyak conversation that showed the former general had gone further in reassuring the Russians.

Once Flynn lied to the Vice President and Pence had gone out in public to defend him, a resignation was inevitable.

But the prospect of the political appointees in one administration using their powers and surveillance capabilities to bring about the resignation of a highly placed official in the incoming administration is, itself, a more alarming event than any perpetrated by Michael Flynn.

The extent to which each and

The extent to which each and every American is being monitored by these spies just reinforces the effort put forth in the Trump campaign to drain the swamp.
If they would attempt to do this to the leader of the free world, just think how little they would hesitate to do even more to us "little people".
They are giving it their best shot to try to derail Trump.
He needs our support.

Ugenetoo.... The American

Ugenetoo.... The American people are Trump's only advocates. I called our Congress people and reminded them that 60% of the voters in my 2nd District town voted for Trump.

And one of Obama's last

And one of Obama's last official acts was to EXPAND the NSA's ability to share its warrantless-seized intel with other agencies... so that's how the information got to where it was needed for sabotage, quickly.

Of course, our privacy was thrown out the window too... but the lefties don't care about that!

“The leaks are real. You’re

“The leaks are real. You’re the one that wrote about them and reported them; I mean, the leaks are real. You know what they said, you saw it, and the leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.”

Yes, this delusional, attention deficit suffering maniac has our nuclear codes. Which are in a briefcase that members of his resort club can take selfies with.

And that was the coherent

And that was the coherent part of his "press conference", which would be more aptly named a meltdown. The man's an unhinged sociopath.

Trump's pick to replace Flynn

Trump's pick to replace Flynn said no thanks, because the White House is a "shit sandwich."

Lol.

Matt and Jasper.... did you

Matt and Jasper.... did you actually see the press conference or hear it? It was really pretty good. Trump was humorous and low keyed. The press corps was engaged. Even Jim Acosta laughed when when Trump said he was going to change from calling it "fake news" to "very fake news". It should have been on television in prime time. I was a reluctant voter for Trump. .. more like voting against the prospect of Hillary Clinton as President. But I think the Trump Presidency is the best thing to happen on the U.S. political scene since the election of Ronald Reagan. If you're anti-war, Trump should be your man! The press was trying to goad him in to saying what he was going to do about the Russian spy ship off the U.S. coast, for example. He basically asked them back.... "you want to me to blow it up? That's not good?" And he said.." I want to do good things for the country and, really, for the world" (both quotes are my paraphrases). "Talking with the Russians is a good thing."

If you want global government

If you want global government and a nation state of America, rapidly declining into a a third world country, Obama and company is the logical choice.

I however prefer a strong and sovereign Republic known as the United States of America.

I have no way to know what agenda is being played out. The normal theme has been Order of out Chaos. The "they" create the problem then rush in to save us when we are going under. It always costs us money and freedoms, but they did rescue us. Thanks for nothing.

If Donald Trump is a nefarious pawn playing a role to create chaos, with the draconian rescue plan already thoroughly devised, then he has me totally fooled.

Surrounded by a sea of sociopath liars, as well as those who seem to hate the US Constitution and what this nation stands for, Mr. Trump appears to be a genuine American who desires to restore the nation to its intended role in the world, leaving it as a valued heritage for his children and grandchildren rather than a dark empty hell hole, which is where it is being driven by opposing agendas.

I may be fooled, but for today I support Mr Trump 100% and encourage him with weekly e-mails to the WhiteHouse.gov address intended for that purpose.

It has been my opinion that at least two factions have fought over control of this nation since its inception.
One can see evidences of that struggle with challenges faced by most of the presidents. Obviously, Mr. Lincoln was tested extensively. I suspect that the true history of the beginnings of this war would be good reading. Teddy Roosevelt stood in the way of detrimental plans that were put off until his departure. More modern presidents governed through the many armed conflicts that would be very interesting to pick apart and find out the truth of the who and why they happened.

That all said, I will side with President Trump, a man I believe has the genuine desire to serve this nation at a critical hour and does not faint when attacked by people who have proven themselves to be untrustworthy.
Without a steak of patriotism and desire for a future for his offspring, this 70 year old man is comfortable enough to just chill out and enjoy the last years he has left on the planet without having to be a public punching bag for a bunch of yayhoos who don't deserve the time of day.

I wonder if some of the controversy is merely that no one remembers what a man is anymore, considering the gender less revolution, political correctness, effeminate men in general. Mr. Trump reminds me of what men were like when I was younger. Isn't that Neanderthal of him? [sic]

Trump is surrounded by sociopathic liars? and reminds you of what a man is?

Jesus, you people are going off the deep end.

Did you like the exchange with the reporter Turx? The man can't pay attention for 10 seconds. You like how he assumed the reporter Ryan must be buddies with the CBC because she's black? Do you realize how ignorant a statement that is?

I think he assumed she might know Cummings because she asked the question..... Cummings, for all of his recent denials, said he "still" hopes a meeting can be held. So, obviously, there had been a meeting planned.

Of course, the mishandling of classified information continues... Hillary was such a good example!

Now, anonymous spooks conduct political witch hunts from the shadows...

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/americas-spies-anonymously-took-do...

If you have something like that, you're supposed to go to the oversight committee in Congress. Y'know, people who have the proper clearances to see the information. Anyone involved in this Flynn leak should be fired and have their clearances pulled.
