Deep State Narrative Quickly Collapsing

Media's Flynn-Russia Narrative Quickly Collapsing as FBI Reportedly Clears Former National Security Adviser

The media narrative that recently ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was involved in nefarious -- nay, sinister and possibly treasonous!!! -- dealings in his December call with the Russian ambassador is quickly collapsing, as CNN reports that the FBI will not be pursuing any criminal investigation involving Flynn's phone call.

So too is the hype that the Trump campaign was riddled with contacts with Russian intelligence, as reported yesterday by The New York Times.

I addressed this story yesterday in my post-Flynn resignation roundupnoting that the screaming headline was undercut by the Times' own reporting that no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence had been found.

But the biggest story is that CNN is reporting not only that the FBI will decline to further investigate or prosecute the short-lived national security adviser, but that Flynn's FBI interview is being described as "cooperative and truthful":

And even the Russians, most likely presuming that the intercepted call transcript will eventually be made public, denied that the Obama sanctions were even discussed:

This comports with the interview Flynn gave to Richard Pollock at The Daily Caller just hours before his resignation:
Flynn insisted that he crossed no lines in his telephone conversation with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak: “If I did, believe me, the FBI would be down my throat, my clearances would be pulled. There were no lines crossed.”
Flynn said there was a brief discussion of the 35 Russian diplomats who were being expelled by Obama in retaliation for Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 campaign.
“It wasn’t about sanctions. It was about the 35 guys who were thrown out,” Flynn said. “So that’s what it turned out to be. It was basically, ‘Look, I know this happened. We’ll review everything.’ I never said anything such 
as, ‘We’re going to review sanctions,’ or anything like that.”
So there's still more reporting to come on that front. If and when the call transcript does emerge, as many believe it will, there may be many media outlets that will owe Flynn an apology. We'll have to wait and see if that's the case.
That leaves yet one more issue: the dangerous and highly illegal leaks of intercepted communications.

Meanwhile, another explosive story from Shane Harris at the Wall Street Journal is now making the rounds claiming that intelligence agencies and officials are withholding information from the Trump administration.

Will these stories join the growing list of botched establishment media reporting since Trump's inauguration?

All right. I think it’s been pretty much established what’s going on here now in terms of the whole Michael Flynn situation. It’s pretty much documented that what’s driving this is the fact that the Democrat Party really doesn’t exist as an electoral operation. It doesn’t function as an entity that wins elections. And because, in that sense, in the sense that there is no Democrat Party, there is no way that the Democrat Party can be the opposition party anymore.

They don’t have the strength or the numbers to be the opposition party unless, of course, Republicans cross the aisle and join them. There just isn’t any “there” there. The Democrats are down 1,200, 1,300 seats. They only run five states. They literally are a regional political party and the battles that they’re having internally to come up with a new chairman are an embarrassment.

The Democrat Party really, really is dwindling away before our eyes. But don’t misunderstand me. It’s precisely because of this that the unelected Democrat Party, which is embedded in our nation’s bureaucracy, has taken over the role of the opposition party. And by that I mean all of the Obama appointees in the intelligence community. All of the Obama and Clinton appointees at the departments of justice, departments of state and the defense department, they are all there, and they are working to sabotage the administration of Donald Trump from within. They are doing this with the aid and cooperation of the media.

Now, the media isn’t who they used to be, either, just as the Democrat Party is really not a functioning political party. Now, don’t misunderstand me on this. I’m not saying that they’ve been defeated forever and gone away, but as currently constituted, they are not an opposition force that can stop anything. They simply don’t have the numbers in the House, in the Senate. In the true representative republic sense of our country, they don’t have any power.

And so they have to turn the country into something other than a representative republic, something other than a democracy, which is what they are doing and which is why what they are doing is far more dangerous than anything Flynn may or may not have done. It’s far more dangerous than anything Flynn may or may not have said. And this effort to deconstruct and transform this country began in Ernest with Barack Hussein Obama and it continues from the shadows of the embedded bureaucrats all throughout not just the federal government, but in the judiciary and in certain levels of state government.

But the media long ago abandoned any pretense of having the objective be to bend and shape public opinion. They lost that battle when we came along and busted up their monopoly. So now the media operates in a totally different plane, a totally different sphere. The media is no longer trying to shape public opinion or inform public opinion so that the people in our representative republic determine the course of events. The media long ago stopped trusting you, and instead the media has thrown in with a political party.

They’ve always been tight with them, but now it’s official. The media has thrown in not just with the Democrat Party; the media has thrown in with the Barack Obama shadow government and the Barack Obama administration. And the media’s objective now has nothing to do with informing you. Their objective now… I mean, they want you to be misinformed. I mean, they are still reporting fake news, made-up news. They are lying about things, hoping to make it easier for them and the Obama shadow government to eventually get rid of Trump and everybody in his administration.

Now, they ultimately / eventually will need public support for this, because the Democrats do not have the votes to say impeach, to convict Donald Trump. But that’s not where they’re focused. They’re focused on things like Flynn resigning and then other scalps coming along. And the media no longer is in the arena of ideas. Forget that. The media has thrown in with the Barack Obama shadow government. Now, the thing that is propelling this assault on Trump is a story that even the people reporting it admit there’s no evidence for.

 There is one thing that keeps propelling this story forward, and it is that the Russians stole the election for Trump by hacking the Democrat National Committee and its servers and John Podesta’s email. There’s no evidence. In fact, you can state with ontological certitude that the Russians had no impact whatsoever on the outcome of the election. It wouldn’t have been possible. But even if you want to live that lie and say that they did, then you would have to say they wanted Hillary Clinton because she won the popular vote, and that’s about all any outside force could hope to affect.

When you start trying to hack and manipulate outcomes in the Electoral College battle, there isn’t a single source anywhere that could do that. Otherwise if somebody had figured that out, whoever that guy is with would always win. So the lie that is the engine and the fuel for all of this that we’re going through is that this election was illegitimate, that the Russians hacked it — and, furthermore, that Trump and his campaign staff were in regular contact with the Russians during the campaign. This story has run twice now in the New York Times, and both times the New York Times admits that there is no evidence whatsoever.
They have no evidence.

It’s akin to the “seriousness of the charge” being so grave that we must continue to look into it. There is no evidence for the primary assertion that is driving this entire attack on Trump. This attack is coming from the shadows of the deep state where former Obama employees remain in the intelligence community. That would be at the CIA; that would be at the Defense Intelligence Agency; that would be at the National Security Agency. They are there. They were not elected. They were appointed.

The same with this phone call of Flynn and the Russian ambassador. They won’t release the whole transcript because they know the whole transcript does not help them. In fact, my guess is the entire transcript of that call would undercut the illusion that they are trying to present. And that is that Flynn gave assurances to the Russian ambassador on the very day Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats. “Don’t sweat it! As soon as Trump’s in there, the sanctions are lifted and your guys are back.” There is no evidence whatsoever that that was ever discussed or said in a direct fashion.

Obama’s not on TV. His embedded employees are doing the dirty work, and they are leaking to people in the media. But they’re not leaking to people in the media. They’re leaking to friends. They’re leaking to compatriots. The people in the media are the neighbors and the friends of (and in some cases having affairs with) the people in the intel community that are doing the leaking. It is a symbiotic, incestuous relationship within the Washington establishment. And they are all aligned. They do not like the result of an open and free election.
They cannot accept it. They have constructed this lie to assure themselves that they didn’t lose, and that is that the Russians tampered, the Russians hacked, that Trump worked with the Russians, and that they and Hillary and the Democrats got screwed out of what is rightfully theirs, and that is never-ending entitlement to power. They reject an election. They reject and hold in contempt the people who voted in that election, and they’re now trying to reverse the results of that election in as undemocratic and un-American a manner as could exist short of a military coup.
And they are doing this in consort with the American media, which is not media. Meaning they are not competing for your opinions. They’re not competing for your support. They’re not in the arena of ideas. They are on the side of the embedded shadow government attempting to destroy political opponents they don’t like. This is the kind of thing that happens in Cuba, banana republics, Venezuela, the lesser developed nations that don’t even make a pretense at democracy or representative republicanism or anything of the sort.

The Democrat Party really, without the assistance of the media, can’t stop anything. They don’t have the numbers. They have lost over a thousand seats. You know the drill. The Obama shadow government, the deep state, and all of the leftist judges throughout our judiciary make up now the official opposition to the portion of our country that believes in America as founded.

And look at what’s happened here in just the span of one week, if I may put this all in perspective for you. In the span of one week, we have seen left-wing tyrannical courts seize control of immigration. In the span of one week, we have seen left-wing tyrannical bureaucrats attempt to seize control over national security, Articles 1 and 2 of the Constitution. In this same week we have rogue leftists and Obama administration leftovers in the intelligence communities violating civil rights and exposing intelligence-gathering methods and leaking all kinds of national security secrets in criminal acts. This indeed is action in violation of federal statute.

The point is there’s a bogus allegation that is fueling all of this. The Flynn resignation, the Flynn controversy, everything about this that you’ve seen in the last however long you’ve been watching, two days, three days, two weeks, three weeks, it is all fueled by the New York Times leading the pack for the Democrat Party to assert that the election was hacked by the Russians. The Russians worked together with Donald Trump to screw Hillary Clinton out of the presidency. It is a lie that they have told themselves so much, I actually now think they believe it.

They cannot accept the fact that they were rejected. They can’t accept the fact that their boy wonder, Barack Obama, was rejected. That doesn’t compute. So they’re unable to accept the hard, cold reality of what happened all during the campaign and the election. So they’ve constructed this alternative reality with alternate facts. And this whole Flynn story is predicated on that assumption. The Russians hacked, Trump helped them, and Hillary lost. And even in the news stories reporting this, you will find the phrase “investigators have found no evidence to prove.”

So all there are are conclusions, conclusions by analysts who’ve looked at the evidence and who are concluding. But conclusions are just somebody’s random thoughts. They are not evidence in any way, shape, manner, or form. New York Times today: No evidence the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians in hacking Democrat National Committee and the election. It’s right there in their story. It’s buried. It’s way at the end of this. You’ll not see it unless it’s pointed out to you, but it’s right there. No evidence the Trump campaign colluded.

You are being lied to on purpose, and with full-fledged knowledge of the people lying to you, and they’re doing this under the guise of presenting to you news.

"The end of Palestine." It seemed that prophecy was really revving up several months ago. We had that resolution passing with the United States abstaining. It "seemed" that the impetus for a a split Jerusalem was very strong. Now...with Trump in office it "appears" that splitting Jerusalem may be years away. Any thoughts?

Just to share, I was driving this morning and heard a very passionate discussion taking place on Family Talk radio interviewing:

American Center for Law & Justice

Livid doesn't describe the actions they are taking to raise awareness to the leaks, injustices and the shadow government being formed. Here's a link for your review.

God Bless!!
