The Michael Flynn Debauchery

The people who administer the American system lost trust in that system and debased our institutions.

Barack Obama is turning into the reverse Oracle of Delphi. He sometimes gets it right for the wrong reasons.

Sensing the populist mood in 2008, he intoned about people “who get bitter, they cling to guns or religion.” Missed in translation was that these “people” thought elites like him were the ones who had separated culturally and politically from mainstream Americans.

Now he says the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against Mike Flynn because of multiple prosecutorial violations of rules protecting defendants’ rights means “the rule of law is at risk.” Right subject, wrong lecture.

Herewith a tutorial. Back in the 1980s, writers for the Journal’s editorial page coined the phrase “inside the Beltway” to describe the moatlike highway around the nation’s capital, whose inhabitants had become politically and psychologically isolated from the rest of the country.

 

Many Americans then came to believe presidential elections were the one way they could send the Beltway a message. In 2016, we had an Earth-to-Beltway election, whose message was about more than Donald Trump.

Next year or 4½ years from now, Mr. Trump’s presidency will pass into history. Left behind, though, will be a permanent Washington establishment in which many Americans today have no trust. None.

In early 2017, the Flynn case wandered in and out of the news, but it always had a bad odor. What looked like a low-grade mistake by Mr. Flynn got built into a high-stakes prosecution, with special counsel Robert Mueller’s lawyers pressuring him with family and financial ruin unless he took a plea and helped them fry bigger fish in a Beltway-wide project—Donald Trump and Russian collusion.

Last week, after U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Jensen examined the Flynn record at the request of Attorney General William Barr, the Justice Department concluded that the abuse of Mr. Flynn’s rights was so egregious that it dropped the case.

What are Americans supposed to conclude when this event comes in the wake of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s embarrassing report of how senior officials at the FBI and Justice used foreign intelligence warrants to crush Carter Page, a Trump campaign functionary?

 

Before that, the public dutifully read endless newspaper column inches about the pursuit by James Comey’s FBI of the manifestly preposterous Steele dossier (if this wasn’t a conspiracy theory, the phrase has no meaning), followed by Mr. Mueller’s team of Beltway lawyers ransacking lives to output a thick volume of unproven collusion suspicions, then handing it off to Adam Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee for more iterations of dragnet subpoenas, culminating in the wasted weeks of a Senate impeachment t

"Cool as a cucumber for 11 straight hours of questions"

I need to download that Hearing and watch it again, just to wonder how IDIOTS decided to vote for a complete Senile f***tard who now is partially responsible for 86 thousand deaths (still more to come).

Now what? You felt alluded? Besides, I don't have the right to change the US misdirection (can't vote) so why worry?

No worries. I was simply amused and decided to allude to the usual embrace of tyranny that I see these days from the ever tolerant Left.

Have a nice whatever.

I'm not combing through SIX THOUSAND posts, looking for something that does not exist.

Trump's own words tell us there is nothing there.

All questions about what crime Obama actually committed are met with "You should find that out".

It's embarrassing how absurd they all look.

Superhero wants Obamagate crime specifics

This superhero wants to solve the Obamagate crime, but President Trump is unclear about what the crime actually is. Watch the full segment on CBS All Access....

I don't know why you bother with a poster so asinine.

But then, you fell for the lies of Syria and the gas attacks, didn't you?

This man was an ambassador of the UK, destroyed by fraudulent sex allegations the same as Assange.

24 Nov, 2018 ... look at the obviously fake narrative of the Syrian government chemical weapons attacks on Douma. The pictures published on Bellingcat of improvised chlorine gas missiles were always obviously fake. Remember this missile was supposed to have smashed through ten inches of solid, steel rebar reinforced concrete.

As I reported back in May last year, that the expert engineers sent to investigate by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) did not buy into this is hardly surprising.

That their findings were deliberately omitted from the OPCW report is very worrying indeed. What became still more worrying was the undeniable evidence that started to emerge from whistleblowers in the OPCW that the toxicology experts had unanimously agreed that those killed had not died from chlorine gas attack. The minutes of the OPCW toxicology meeting really do need to be read in full. https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/wp/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/actual_toxicology_meeting_redacted.pdf

The highlights are:

“No nerve agents had been detected in environmental or bio samples”

“The experts were conclusive in their statements that there was no correlation between symptoms and chlorine exposure”

I really do urge you to click on the above link and read the entire minute. In particular, it is impossible to read that minute and not understand that the toxicology experts believed that the corpses had been brought and placed in position.

“The experts were also of the opinion that the victims were highly unlikely to have gathered in piles at the centre of the respective apartments, at such a short distance from an escape from any toxic chlorine gas to much cleaner air”.

So the toxicology experts plainly believed the corpse piles had been staged, and the engineering experts plainly believed the cylinder bombs had been staged. Yet, against the direct evidence of its own experts, the OPCW published a report managing to convey the opposite impression – or at least capable of being portrayed by the media as giving the opposite impression.

How then did the OPCW come to do this? Rather unusually for an international organisation, the OPCW Secretariat is firmly captured by the Western states, largely because it covers an area of activity which is not of enormous interest to the political elites of developing world states, and many positions require a high level of technical qualification. It was also undergoing a change of Director General at the time of the Douma investigation, with the firmly Francoist Spanish diplomat Fernando Arias taking over as Director General and the French diplomat Sebastian Braha effectively running the operation as the Director-General’s chef de cabinet, working in close conjunction with the US security services. Braha simply ordered the excision of the expert opinions on engineering and toxicology, and his high-handedness worked, at least until whistleblowers started to reveal the truth about Braha as a slimy, corrupt, lying war hawk.

(Small objection - Craig Murray strangely says "Rather unusually for an international organisation, the OPCW Secretariat is firmly captured by the Western states" when as best I understand the OPCW was bound to be in the hands of the terrorists since its work concerns WMD. We are the only people allowed to have them).
