Michael Flynn’s Sacking: Hillary’s Revenge?


Eliminating National Security Advisor Michael Flynn in office less than four weeks delivered a major body blow to Trump’s administration.

Trump sacking him was poor judgment, a self-inflicted wound on his presidency, a pro-Hillary neocon victory, leaving himself vulnerable to more attacks on his legitimacy.

Instead of supporting his national security point man responsibly, he surrendered to forces wanting his presidency undermined, a  counterproductive act.

Ostensibly it was over Flynn’s pre-inauguration phone conversation with Russia’s US ambassador, failing to explain sanctions were discussed, but doing no harm – not making himself vulnerable to Moscow blackmail as media claim.

Hillary’s deep state supporters, including mainstream presstitutes, are celebrating after scoring a big victory.

The day before Flynn’s sacking, The New York Times headlined “Mental Health Professionals Warn About Trump,” claiming his “speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president” – an accusation no responsible mental health professional would make without firsthand evaluation.

Pro-Hillary, Trump hater Times columnist Charles Blow accused him of wanting to be an “emperor,” not president, saying he wants “to grind the opposition underfoot.”

The neocon, CIA-connected Washington Post called upheaval “standard operating procedure inside the White House,” saying:

He “failed to fill such key posts as White House communications director, while sub-Cabinet positions across agencies and scores of ambassadorships around the globe still sit empty.”

Fact: WaPo failed to explain Democrats continue obstructing confirmation of Trump officials, slowing the process instead of proceeding responsibly.

Fact: Various posts don’t sit empty. Holdover Obama officials temporarily fill them until Trump appointees are confirmed and assume their duties.

WaPo: “The chaos and competing factions that were a Trump trademark in business and campaigning now are starting to define his presidency.”

Fact: All new administrations have growing pains. Running the nation is no simple task, far more complicated than what any incumbent experienced in other positions.

Fact: WaPo, The New York Times and television news were Trump’s sharpest critics since announcing his presidential candidacy in June 2015 – continuing an unrelenting hateful drumbeat post-inauguration.

Justifiable criticism is warranted – almost entirely absent during Obama’s disgraceful two terms, ignoring Hillary’s record of high crimes.
