Exclusive from Gen. Flynn: Forces of Evil Want To Steal Our Freedom in the Dark of Night, But God Stands with Us


Reported By Michael Flynn | Published June 11, 2020 at 10:51am

There are seminal moments in American history that test every fiber of our nation’s soul. We are facing one now.

Revolutionary forces are causing every American citizen to question which direction the country is heading. To determine the outcome, we must examine our nation’s history to project ourselves forward into the future.

Once again, tyranny and treachery are in our midst, and although we feel we’ve descended into a hellish state of existence, we must never forget, hell is conquerable.

Prayer is the greatest weapon and a consciousness of God is the ultimate “thought of the day.”

The idea or notion of a heaven on Earth is the very real sense of being free. Freedom is oxygen. Like the air we breathe that keeps our lungs full and our hearts beating, the celestial feeling of freedom brings a sense of peace to our souls.

Freedom must never be taken for granted. Securing our freedom demands a high price — and that price requires hard work and sacrifice. Both will bind us all by the value they produce, but only if we are willing to seek new opportunities and new ideas.

Those who have sacrificed the most, those who have given the last true measure of devotion that derives from the love of faith, family and the cause of freedom — for all of us to be free, and for the betterment of our republic and the free world — cannot be allowed to have died in vain.

Theirs is the ultimate sacrifice and heaven is their reward.

Our future, the future of our children and grandchildren and the future of our country are at stake. God will not give way to the care of the devil or allow us to be left to the evil vices of those who would steal our freedom in the dark of night. He will not. Instead, God will stand with us, as he always does.

Hard work and personal sacrifice still very much matter. Being a good person and showing kindness to others still matter.

If our nation is to survive this crucible moment, we need to fall back on the God-given values and ideals that are the very foundation of our constitutional republic. Let us not fear the uncertainty that comes with the unknown, instead accept it and fight through that sense of fear. And we must remember: The power of hell, while strong, is limited. God is the ultimate judge and decision maker. His anointed providence is our country, the United States of America.

As long as we accept God in the lifeblood of our nation, we will be OK. If we don’t, we will face a hellish existence.

I vote we accept God.

AG Barr Responds to Judge Emmet Sullivan’s Actions in General Flynn Case with Massive Fire Power

Not only did the Department of Justice respond to corrupt Judge Emmet Sullivan’s actions in the General Flynn case yesterday, but they did so with massive fire power.

The Barr Justice Department dropped its case against General Mike Flynn last month after bombshell documents were released that proved Flynn was framed by Comey’s FBI.  But the Clinton-appointed Judge Emmet Sullivan made a shocking, political, move to delay justice for General Mike Flynn. Judge Sullivan extended the case by soliciting amicus briefs to allow for public comment on Flynn’s criminal case. Judge Sullivan also appointed retired Clinton appointee judge John Gleeson to argue against the government’s motion to dismiss the charge against Flynn!

This is unheard of!

This came after the US Supreme Court just one week earlier ruled that rogue judges CANNOT do what Judge Sullivan is wanting to do.  The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 to prevent judges like Emmet Sullivan from becoming tyrants on the bench. On Monday Judge Emmet Sullivan claimed he was not required to “rubber stamp” the Justice Department’s bid to dismiss the case.

This is a ridiculous statement by the corrupt judge turned prosecutor.

On Monday afternoon the Department of Justice responded to the rogue judge reminding Sullivan, “We’re the prosecutors here, not you!” But what has gone unreported is that the brief filed by the Justice Department has massive fire power.  The response from the Department of Justice came directly from the office of the United States Solicitor General, Noel Francisco.

Sean Davis at the Federalist reported:

In a sign of how important DOJ views the underlying constitutional issues in the case, the formal brief to the appellate court wasn’t just signed by the line attorney managing the government’s case. Instead, it was signed by Noel J. Francisco, the Solicitor General of the United States who is tasked with representing the U.S. government in the most important appellate cases across the country; Brian A. Benczkowski, the Assistant Attorney General and head of DOJ’s entire criminal division; Deputy Solicitors General Jeffrey B. Wall and Eric J. Feigin; assistants to the Solicitor General Frederick Liu and Vivek Suri; Michael R. Sherwin, the acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia; Kenneth C. Kohl, the acting Principal Assistant United States Attorney for D.C.; and Jocelyn S. Ballantine, the line prosecutor handling the Flynn case at trial.

“The Constitution vests in the Executive Branch the power to decide when—and when not—to prosecute potential crimes,” DOJ argued in its brief. Rules of federal criminal procedure, cited by Sullivan in support of his gambit to appoint himself both judge and prosecutor in the inquisition against Flynn, “do[] not authorize a court to stand in the way of a dismissal the defendant does not oppose, and any other reading of [those rules] would violate both Article II and Article III” of the constitution, DOJ wrote.

“Nor, under the circumstances of this case, may the district court assume the role of prosecutor and initiate criminal charges of its own,” the brief continued. “Instead of inviting further proceedings the court should have granted the government’s motion to dismiss.”

The case is now in the hands of the DC Circuit Court.  Obama’s plans to indict General Flynn are over.

Report: Acting DNI Grenell Declassifies List of Obama Officials Involved in Flynn ‘Unmasking’


Reported by JOSHUA CAPLAN |

Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, before they attended a wreath laying ceremony at the memorial for United Nations staff killed in Iraq at the U.N. Headquarters in New York, N.Y., on … / White House Photo / Pete Souza

Grenell brought the list of officials to the Department of Justice last week, an unnamed official told the news outlet. No further details of the intelligence official’s visit to the Justice Department are known.

In 2017, former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice reportedly told the House Intelligence Committee she “unmasked” several Trump associates to find out why United Arab Emirates’ crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, visited New York without notifying the Obama administration.

Samantha Power, Obama-era U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), is also believed to have made up to 260 requests to “unmask” U.S. citizens tied into surveillance of non-U.S. citizens, according to Fox News. She reportedly requested information seen in the days leading up to Trump’s inauguration. Then-Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) later revealed Power testified that a portion of the “unmasking” requests made in her name were made by others.

ABC News’ report comes after the Justice Department dropped its criminal case against Flynn, who plead guilty to making false statements to the FBI regarding his contacts with Kislyak. The decision to drop its case comes after handwritten notes compiled by FBI officials questioned whether the “goal” was “to get [the Trump official] to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”

Ahead of the filing’s release, prosecutor Brandon Van Grack moved to withdraw from the case.

In an interview with CBS News, Attorney General William Barr defended the decision, saying he was “doing the law’s bidding.”

“A crime cannot be established here. They did not have a basis for a counterintelligence investigation against Flynn at that stage,” Barr said in reference to the FBI.

“People sometimes plead to things that turn out not to be crimes,” he added.

Newly released documents reveal Obama was aware of the details of Flynn’s intercepted December 2016 telephone calls with Kislyak, which purportedly surprised top DOJ officials such as then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

Breitbart News reported:

The documents from the government’s motion to dismiss their case against Flynn show, however, that at a January 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-CIA Director John Brennan, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Obama had asked Comey and Yates to “stay behind.”

Obama told them he had “learned of the information about Flynn” and his conversation with Kislyak, where they discussed sanctions his administration had levied against Russia. (A memo penned by then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice also showed that Biden stayed behind as well.)

Obama “specified he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”

In a leaked Friday call, Obama said the DOJ’s decision to drop its case against Flynn puts the “rule of law is at risk.”

“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said during a virtual discussion with members of the Obama Alumni Association, according to an audio call obtained by Yahoo News.

“The fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”

On Sunday, President Trump posted several messages stating Obama had been “caught” surveilling him and signaled the matter could be investigated.

“He got caught, OBAMAGATE!” the president tweeted.

A Real Whistleblower Complaint Could Help Gen. Flynn And Blow The Doors Off Deep State Corruption

A Real Whistleblower Complaint Could Help Gen. Flynn And Blow The Doors Off Deep State Corruption

House Democrats would love to keep your attention on an impeachment inquiry-based of information from a fake whistleblower that didn’t even have firsthand knowledge. However, an overlooked whistleblower complaint from 2018 could help General Flynn and have a huge impact on Attorney General Barr’s investigation into the Russia collusion hoax.

In 2017 Adam Lovinger who was then an analyst for the Office of Net Assessment at the Pentagon (ONA) had his security clearance revoked. The reason for his clearance being revoked was because he questioned his boss Director of ONA Col. James Baker why politically connected contractors like FBI-informant Stefan Halper who spied on President Trump during his campaign were receiving lucrative contracts doing “inherently governmental functions.” Col. Baker who regularly met with the Washington Post is being blamed by Flynn attorneys that he was the one that leaked the classified phone calls to the press. According to reports Baker met with Washinton Post reporter David Ignatius often and in 2017 Ignatius published a report about the Flynn phone calls. 

One specific contractor was the Long-Term Strategy Group (LTSG) which is owned by Chelsea Clinton’s “best friend” Jackie Newmyer-Deal. The Daily Caller reports:

Lovinger warned his superiors at ONA about the legal issues specifically pertaining to LTSG’s Newmyer-Deal being designated as a “U.S. Representative” in bilateral foreign relations activities with the Japanese.

In an incident with another ONA contractor (not LTSG), Lovinger disclosed to Baker that the contractor copied a World Bank report onto the contractor’s own letterhead and passed it off as original work.

In August of 2016, Bill Gertz of The Washington Free Beacon wrote a series of pieces related to the ONA’s over-reliance on government contractors and the problems surfacing as a result.

The stories covered how much contractors were paid, the questionable value of their product, critical threats that went ignored, and favorable treatment of Clinton’s contractor friend Newmyer-Deal.

According to the whistleblower complaint, Baker targeted Lovinger by making him the target of an investigation claiming he leaked classified documents. 

Judicial Watch discovered the whistleblower complaint on August 20, 2018 and filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Defense to learn more and come to Lovinger’s aid.

On August 14, 2019 Lovinger was cleared of all charges.

With the information provided by Lovinger in his actual “whistleblower” complaint, it appears that not only could Flynn’s case get overturned that Attorney General Barr may also have more information to proceed with criminal charges against those that started the Russian collusion hoax. 

Dam’s Breaking: FBI Agent With Inside Knowledge Flips on Comey, Wants to Testify


disclaimerReported By Benjamin Arie | May 24, 2018 at 3:11pm

The scandal that has been dubbed “Spygate” is currently making headlines, and former FBI Director James Comey is right in the middle of it.

As Spygate — the allegation that the FBI placed “moles” in the Trump campaign to undermine him — unravels, one incident involving Comey has largely faded from memory. That investigation focused on retired Gen. Mike Flynn, and it’s coming back to haunt anti-Trump elitists.

Flynn was an early target of Robert Mueller’s special investigation into alleged wrongdoing by Trump team members. In early 2017, he resigned as national security adviser after facing criticism for improperly communicating with a Russian ambassador during the presidential transition period.

Remember, Flynn’s role as national security adviser made talking with Russian diplomats part of his position, and his resignation and subsequent charge had less to do with job-related phone calls and more to do with alleged dishonesty about what was discussed.

As part of a plea deal with Mueller, the previously respected military leader and intelligence expert pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to the FBI.

That was seen as proof positive that the probe into the Trump camp was on the right track, but the investigation soon fizzled after few serious indictments were brought forward. Now, more than a year after Mueller’s probe began, it looks more like an unfocused witch hunt than a serious investigation. 

Fast forward to this month. From an unredacted portion of the House intelligence committee report of James Comey’s testimony, eagle-eyed reporters noticed something odd: It appears that despite having almost no evidence against Flynn during the presidential transition, the Obama-era FBI ran an intelligence operation against him anyway, and used an unofficial and likely illegal media “leak” of Flynn’s call with the Russian ambassador to justify digging deeper. This is a bit like the police pulling over a vehicle but finding no reasonable suspicion to carry out a search, only to ransack the car anyway because a passerby repeated a rumor about the driver. 

In other words, it has the hallmarks of a setup or a witch hunt.

It doesn’t look much like the proper and lawful investigation of a suspected crime.

flynn01

To add to the growing scandal, Jack Posobiec of One America News reported Wednesday that one of the FBI agents who was in the room when Flynn was interrogated by the bureau believes the disgraced national security adviser was unfairly railroaded — and Comey was behind it.

“FBI Agent Joe Pientka who interviewed General Flynn plans to testify against Comey and McCabe, adds ‘It was all Comey,‘” Posobiec posted on Twitter.

flynn02

Posobiec also hinted that the FBI special agent who is ready to flip on Comey was an eyewitness to the actual interview of Flynn, which may have varied drastically from what went into the bureau’s official reports.

There is also evidence that agents, including Pientka, believed Flynn was being entirely honest with them during the investigation, and that he did not try to deceive them at all.

“Pientka knows what was said in the room, before the 302 reports were written by Strzok,” the journalist explained. The “302 reports” refer to summaries of suspect interviews conducted by agents, while Strzok is the agent who held obvious anti-Trump bias, as revealed in countless text messages.

If correct, the fact that an FBI agent who has firsthand knowledge of Flynn’s interview is disgusted by the bureau’s actions and ready to testify against Comey speaks volumes.

That is the same modus operandi now being used by Mueller against Trump and his team: Dig into the lives of political opponents, pushing the boundaries of what is legal and disregarding just cause, in order to overturn every rock and search every closet for skeletons.like i said

This isn’t the way an investigation is supposed to happen, yet elitists within the DOJ don’t seem to care. The American people, however, do — and Mueller, Comey, and their cronies may be in for a surprise as this scandal continues to be exposed.

Some Memes Worth Keeping


Bill O’Reilly Drops 1 Fact From Comey Testimony That Media Is Ignoring


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/bill-o-reilly-fact-on-comey/

Advertisement – story continues below

Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly claimed Wednesday evening that, despite all the hoopla by the media over former FBI Director James Comey’s then-upcoming testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding his conversations with President Donald Trump, the president has done nothing wrong.

“A sitting President has absolute authority to ask about any investigation as long as the Prez does not interfere in fact gathering process,” he wrote in a tweet.

In Comey’s testimony the next morning, the former director admitted that in February the president allegedly asked him to drop the bureau’s investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who ostensibly resigned earlier that month after prior conversations between him and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak became public.

The problem is that Comey viewed that simple question as an “order” and now believes he was fired from his own position three months later partially because he failed to follow it. For the record, this belief is patently false.

Moreover, even if Trump had actually ordered Comey to stop the investigation, that order would itself not have been wrong either, according to law scholar Alan Dershowitz.

“(O)ur history shows that many presidents — from Adams to Jefferson, to Lincoln, to Roosevelt, to Kennedy, to Bush 1, and to Obama — have directed the Justice Department with regard to ongoing investigations,” he wrote Thursday in an op-ed for Fox News. “The history is clear, the precedents are clear, the constitutional structure is clear, and common sense is clear.”

But did Trump really “order” Comey to halt the investigation?

The answer to this question remains murky, though what former Director Comey himself wrote in his farewell letter is not: “I have long believed that a President can fire an FBI Director for any reason, or for no reason at all.”

OK, then why is Comey still complaining? And why are the “hysterical” media, as O’Reilly referred to them, acting as the former director’s testimony was somehow earth-shattering? Is it because they’re idiots or they’re just full of it? Knowing them, it’s probably both.

ALERT: Former CIA Director SHATTERS Liberal Comey Conspiracy Theories With ONE Simple Statement


disclaimerPosted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com on May 23, 2017

URL of the original posting site: http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/alert-former-cia-director-shatters-liberal-comey-conspiracy-theories-one-simple-statement/

Liberals have been trying to push this conspiracy theory that President Trump pressured the CIA to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn, his former National Security Advisor.

Well, that was all blown to bits when former CIA Director John Brennan gave his testimony to Adam Schiff.

Schiff asked: In respect to a number of allegations made recently that the president or his aides may have sought to enlist the help of members the IC [intelligence community] or Director Comey himself to drop the Flynn investigation.

Have any members of the IC shared with you their concerns that the president was attempting to enlist the help of people within the intelligence community to drop the Flynn investigation?

To which Brennan replied, “No, sir.”

You can imagine Schiff’s jaw dropping right about now.

Schiff didn’t let it go that easy though. He pressed: “Are you aware of any efforts the president has made to enlist the help of the intelligence community to push back on a narrative involving the collusion issue?”

Brennan stated, “I am unaware of it.”

LMAO! You can probably feel the personal freak-out Schiff had after that second statement.

Brennan just completely blew up the liberal’s conspiracy theory in one sentence.

The New York Times had alleged President Trump pressured former FBI Director James Comey to drop the case before he was fired. Comey testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, acknowledging the Department of Justice had not tried to impede the FBI’s investigation of Flynn.

Although Brennan slammed the door on whether Trump had pressured the CIA to drop the investigation, he would not close the door on the question of whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia leading up to the election.

He was asked “Was there intelligence that said that the Trump campaign was colluding with Moscow during their campaign?”russophobia

Brennan answered: There was intelligence that the Russian intelligence services were actively involved in this effort, and having been involved in many counter-intelligence cases in the past, I know what the Russians try to do; they try to suborn individuals and they try to get individuals, including U.S. persons, to act on their behalf, either wittingly or unwittingly.

And I was worried by a number of the contacts Russians had with U.S. persons, and so therefore, by the time I left office on January 20, I had unresolved questions in my mind as to whether or not the Russians had been successful  in getting U.S. persons involved in the campaign or not, to work on their behalf, again, either in a witting or an unwitting fashion.

And so, therefore I felt as though the FBI investigation was certainly well-founded and need to look into these issues.

Bombshell: May 3rd Calendar Entry Will Clear Trump… Media in Panic Mode


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/bombshell-may-3rd-calendar/

The Washington Post may very well have led the American public seriously astray via its recent attacks on President Donald Trump. The Post claimed that FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo in which he said that Trump had asked him to drop the investigation on former administration member Michael Flynn, despite a clear claim to the contrary by Comey’s successor, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

What’s more frustrating than that is the fact that The Post claimed anonymous sources backed up its statements, but provided no real substance.

Just look for a second at this verbiage. This is an actual, serious line from The Washington Post that they just expect the good people of America to believe:

“‘I hope you can let this go, Trump said, according to the Comey notes, which were described by the associates. Comey’s written account of the meeting is two pages long and highly detailed, the associates said.”

And although Comey has not come out and said specifically that Trump never asked him to stop investing Flynn, he certainly seemed to imply it in May 3 testimony he gave the Senate Judiciary Committee.

When asked whether senior DOJ officials could ask the FBI to drop an investigation, Comey said flat-out, “It’s not happened in my experience,” according to a transcript, provided by, once again, The Washington Post.

Although that’s not a denial of Trump himself having asked Comey to drop the investigation, there does seem to be that implication at the very least. You’d think if Trump had said something, Comey would also have said something.

In fact, The Post’s statement doesn’t mean much at all when you consider the actual on-the-record-in-front-of-witnesses claims made by acting FBI director Andrew McCabe that fly right in the face of these unsubstantiated accusations.

When Sen. Marco Rubio asked McCabe before the Senate Intelligence Committee whether or not the firing of former FBI Director James Comey “in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped or negatively impacted any of the work, any investigation, or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” McCabe’s response was even more definitive than the question given to him dictated.

“As you know, senator,” McCabe said, “the work of the men and women of the FBI continues despite any changes in circumstance, any decisions, so there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date.”

Huh. No effort at all to impede our investigation to date. Interesting.

The Washington Post’s editors tried to cover themselves by saying, “It’s unclear from the questioning if McCabe was talking solely about the consequences of Comey’s abrupt firing, or referring to a specific investigation on Trump’s associates for possible connections to Russian officials.”

Yeah, right. That’s not the only thing unclear here.
