Flynn Team Moves to Have Deep State Judge Removed From ObamaGate Case

If we’re going to drain the swamp, let’s start with these meddling judges, shall we?

Published

on

General Michael Flynn was one of the first victims of the ObamaGate scandal, even before it was known as “ObamaGate”.

When Flynn was charged with lying to the FBI, the situation was still begin referred to as “RussiaGate”, and was following a script that was written by and for the Deep State Democrats.  The idea was to cast doubt on the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s electoral victory in 2016, thus sending the American people into a bizarre and uncharted bit of outrage.

Ironically, instilling this sort of unease in the American electorate is precisely the sort of thing that makes Vladimir Putin giddy, but the Democrats didn’t have the forethought to realize this at the time.

Now, after a series of damning declassifications, it has become painfully obvious that Michael Flynn was merely a pawn in the left’s insidious scheme, having been charged with lying to the FBI even though the FBI openly discussed hoodwinking Flynn into lying in order to charge him and thus legitimize their own investigation.

The Department of Justice, seeing the writing on the wall here, swiftly dropped the charges against Flynn – but meddling Judge Emmet Sullivan has kept the ruse alive by allowing amicus briefs to be entered into the record, starting with the work of known anti-Flynn figures.

That’s why the General’s legal team is now taking drastic action.

Michael Flynn’s lawyer filed a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on Tuesday, seeking a “writ of mandamus” to compel a federal district court to dismiss the charges against him, as the Department of Justice (DOJ) requested last week.

Sidney Powell, the attorney who took over Flynn’s case after his previous lawyers had negotiated a plea bargain, filed the petition, which also asks the D.C. Circuit to transfer the case out of the hands of Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, and to cancel his request for amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) briefs arguing against dismissal.

Sullivan, who had previously asked prosecutors whether Flynn should have been charged with treason, balked at letting the case go. He invited amicus briefs from outside groups, including an anti-Trump group calling itself “Watergate Prosecutors.” He also appointed retired judge John Gleeson to argue against dismissal and in favor of finding Flynn in criminal contempt of court, after Gleeson co-wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post arguing against dropping charges.

The case has come to be the canary in the coal mine for the Deep State, and is a near-perfect example of President Donald Trump’s “drain the swamp” ethos come to life.

LEGO Targets ‘Woke’ Demographic with Latest Maneuver

WOW.

Published

on

As much of the nation is engrossed in a conversation about racial equality, the First Amendment, police brutality, and martial law, toymaker LEGO is jumping into the political fray.

The incredibly popular plastic block makers have taken a fairly “woke” stance in the wake of large national protests by not only voicing their solidarity as so many corporations have, but by now self-censoring their own product line.

The Danish toymaker Lego has asked retailers to pull promotional materials for some play figures in response to the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, including all police figures and accessories, firefighters, and accessories, and even the White House.

The Toy Book obtained the email sent to retailers:

“The Toy Book has received a copy of an email sent to affiliate marketers by Rakuten Linkshare on behalf of the LEGO Group. The email requests removal of product listings and features for more than 30 LEGO building sets, Minifigures, and accessories that include representation of police officers, firefighters, criminals, emergency vehicles, and buildings. Sets include the LEGO City Police Station, Fire Station, Police Dog Unit, Patrol Car, Fire Plane, Mobile Command Center, Police Highway Arrest, and many more. Even the LEGO City Donut Shop Opening set — which includes Police Officer “Duke DeTain” and “Crook” Minifigures — roleplay items including a Police Handcuffs & Badge Set, and the adult builder LEGO Creator version of The White House made the removal list. “

Given the tone deafness of several other corporate attempts at solidarity, the LEGO decision has received its fair share of criticism online as users on both sides of the argument wonder if the toymaker is trying a little too hard, or not enough.

Several GOP Senators Turn Their Backs on Trump After Church Photo

“Mad Dog” Mattis’ op-ed seems to have prodded a few in the GOP to speak out.

Published

on

It seems that the unrest that has long plagued Capitol Hill has spilled out into the streets of America, and many on The Beltway are beginning to express concerns about where we are as a nation.

Just yesterday, former White House adviser General James Mattis spoke out against President Trump’s use of the military to quell protests around the country.  Well it seems as though ol’ “Mad Dog” has stirred something within the GOP, as Lisa Murkowski adds her voice to the offensive against the Oval Office.

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska on Thursday praised former Defense Secretary James Mattis’ blistering critique of President Donald Trump as “true and honest and necessary and overdue.”

Murkowski said: “When I saw Gen. Mattis’ comments yesterday I felt like perhaps we are getting to a point where we can be more honest with the concerns that we might hold internally and have the courage of our own convictions to speak up. And so I’m working as one individual to form the right words, knowing that these words really matter so I appreciate General Mattis’ comments.”

She continued:

“I think right now, as we are all struggling to find ways to express the words that need to be expressed appropriately, questions about who I’m going to vote for or not going to vote for, I think, are distracting at the moment. I know people might think that’s a dodge, but I think there are important conversations that we need to have as an American people among ourselves about where we are right now,” she said.

Fellow Senators Lisa Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah have also spoken out about the President’s actions.

BET Founder Calls for ‘$14 Trillion’ In Slavery Reparations

Published

The founder of Black Entertainment Television Robert Johnson is calling for $14 trillion of reparations for slavery.

“Now is the time to go big” to keep America from dividing into two separate and unequal societies, Robert Johnson said in a CNBC interview Monday.

One of the wealthiest black men in the world, talking about inequity… Tone-deaf much?

Breitbart::

The founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET), Robert Johnson says the recent riots prove that the U.S. needs to “go big” with a “$14 trillion” expenditure for slavery reparations as a way to address racial inequality in America.

Appearing on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Monday, Robert Johnson insisted, “Now is the time to go big” with a really big plan.

“Wealth transfer is what’s needed,” he exclaimed. “Think about this. Since 200-plus-years or so of slavery, labor taken with no compensation, is a wealth transfer. Denial of access to education, which is a primary driver of accumulation of income and wealth, is a wealth transfer.”

Johnson insisted that reparations for an institution of slavery that ended more than 150 years ago would be the “affirmative action program of all time” because “damages are owed” to black Americans for the “wealth transfer to white Americans away from African Americans.”

“Damages is a normal factor in a capitalist society for when you have been deprived for certain rights,” Johnson insisted. “If this money goes into pockets like the [coronavirus] stimulus checks … that money is going to return back to the economy.” More

Not one red cent! I’m supposed to pay for something that happened 150 years ago before my family even came to the USA? If, after 50+ years of targeted great society assistance programs, you can’t make it, the problem lies within yourself.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Confirms His Daughter Arrested At Protest: “I’m Proud Of Her…”

Published

By

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio insisted today that his 25-year-old daughter was “peacefully protesting” and “not doing anything that would provoke a negative response” when she was arrested late Sunday night during demonstrations against the death of George Floyd.

Chiara de Blasio was taken into custody in Manhattan after allegedly blocking traffic and then refusing to move, law enforcement sources told the New York Post.

“And when I found out she had been arrested, I finally reached her with Chirlane and I asked her recount the whole story and look – I love my daughter deeply, I honor her. She is such a good human being. She only wants to do good in the world,” he continued. “She wants to see a better and more peaceful world. She believes a lot of change is needed. I’m proud of her that she cares so much and that she was willing to go out there and do something about it.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio, the police are not arresting people for standing and walking… she did something to get taken in, and thankfully the police union gave us the real scoop.

NY Post:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s daughter was arrested at a Manhattan protest on Saturday night, law enforcement sources told The Post on Sunday.

Chiara de Blasio, 25, was taken into custody around 10:30 p.m. after cops declared an unlawful assembly at 12th Street and Broadway in Lower Manhattan, the sources said.

She had allegedly been blocking traffic on Broadway and was arrested after refusing to move, the source said.

“That was a real hotspot, police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops. There were thousands of people in that area at that time,” the source said.

Chiara gave a residence on East End Avenue as her address — otherwise known as Gracie Mansion, the mayor’s Upper East Side home. But she didn’t tell cops she was the mayor’s daughter. More

Since when is “blocking traffic and refusing to move” acceptable behavior? Is it any wonder why this is going on? Another yada, yada, yada speech from a delusional progressive.

Chicago Mayor Issues Not-So-Subtle Expletive in Direction of President Trump

Lightfoot’s jab will do little more than raise the already-sweltering political temperature of America.

Published

on

Off in the distance, America is beginning to hear the faint squeal of something wicked coming this way, like the telltale shrieks from under the hood of a car that is desperately in need of an overhaul.

There is anger and rage and angst out there, and it seems at times to never end.  We have watched cities across the nation burn, and we have experienced the worst of what our so-called friends have to offer on social media.  Today should be a day of mourning in this great nation, and instead there is animosity.  It is not morose, but manic.

And while the masses of America shake and froth and foam at a system that they feel is wholly inadequate, our leaders are not calling for peace.  They are using this time to lob attacks at one another that will only serve to upset us more.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot had very choice, very specific words for President Trump’s comments on the murder of George Floyd:

“I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump It begins with F and ends with you.”

Her statement continued.

“Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. We must stand in firm solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker,” Lightfoot said. “We see the game he is playing. It is so transparent and he is not very good at it. He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail.”

Division is how we got here, and Mayor Lightfoot’s comments may prove to be more inflammatory than not.

Graham Says Comey, Brennan, Clapper, McCabe Will All Be Called to Testify

It looks like the Deep State is in deep you-know-what.

Published

on

RussiaGate was fun while it lasted for the Democrats, but their attempts to delegitimize Donald Trump’s 2016 election will now die a slow and painful death at the hands of the burgeoning ObamaGate investigation.

The GOP has long been concerned that outgoing President Barack Obama may have unethically abused his position to “spy” on incoming Trump team, in an effort to push a wild conspiracy theory that The Kremlin had something to do with Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016.  The “evidence” they used to kickstart the whole shebang was little more than a dirty “dossier” of old Wall Street Journal rumors that had been kicking around for a decade prior.

Nevertheless, Americans were soon enduring a 22-month-long, $25 million nightmare of an investigation that did nothing but stoke the fires of the “resistance”.

Now, as Republican lawmakers begin to look for answers as to why or how this could have happened, Senator Lindsey Graham has told radio host Hugh Hewitt that a number of incredibly prominent witnesses will be called to testify on the matter.

HEWITT: Now I have a series of questions. I just would like to know yes, no, I don’t know as to whether or not you will be calling as a witness to the Judiciary Committee the following people. Will you be subpoenaing James Comey?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: Andrew McCabe?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: John Brennan?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: James Clapper?

GRAHAM: Yes.

HEWITT: Susan Rice?

GRAHAM: Don’t know.

HEWITT: Ben Rhodes?

GRAHAM: Don’t know. I’m having, Senator Johnson’s going to look at all the things that happened from the election to transition. His committee’s going to look at all that.

It looks like the Deep State is in deep you-know-what.
