The resignation of General Flynn raises questions about our Surveillance State and “insider” leftist activists willing to do our nation harm to delegitimize Trump and his team. It certainly proves that Obama used every bureaucracy as a political weapon against his opposition, including the DOJ.
HMMMMM..Lets get this straight, the Obama Administration, used the DOJ&FBI to spy on an American citizen and then the Obama activists still in the DOJ leaked the information after they informed our President,never giving him a chance to deal with it as he saw fit. I thought it was against the law to spy on our citizens? I thought it was against the law to leak information? Anyone hear about the three Muslim DOJ employees who were caught last week, accessing foreign leaders calls and leaking to the media? The left has got so fanatical, they have undermined our security in their quest to demonize and delegitimize Trump and his team. Do we really want to confirm that we spy on Foreign leaders inside the US? NO we don’t. Do we really want Foreign leaders to be afraid of calling and talking to our President about sensitive matters? No we don’t. Do we really want leftist activists in government positions spying on our President and his people, leaking distorted and sensitive information ? No we don’t. Before the demonizing spin starts from the liberal media, Flynn broke no laws. He is allowed to speak with foreign leaders and represent Trump’s views to them. He gave false information, whether unintentionally or intentionally, to the Vice President. That was why he resigned. Flynn’s resignation letter showed how honorable he is and how much he loves his country. He did not want to hurt the Trump Administration with the distraction that the left would use as a cudgel to demonize Trump and his team, so he resigned. He also did not want the left to demonize Putin so much that a more harmful divide would be created with Russia. The left and some war hawks in the Republican Party seem to want another Russian Cold War with the numerous costly proxy wars that come with it, instead of trying to negotiate for better behavior and perhaps find a partner in our war against the world’s common existential enemy, Radical Islam and its barbaric supremacist political theology. You don’t bully a bully, an authoritarian, especially an alpha man. You look for common threads and work it out. You negotiate and you make a deal. We worked with the Soviet Union against Germany. I am sure we can world with Russia to eradicate the jihadists and perhaps working with us will modify some of Russia’s bad behavior. Ostracizing Russia will only bring more harm to the area and make it align with the despots in this world.
