There is an unwritten rule among the sleazy, arrogant Democratic politicians who have run Chicago for the past century, though maybe it was started by the only Republican in the mix, William “Big Bill” Thompson, who ran the city alongside Al Capone in the 1920s. It is the thug concept that if someone disrespects you or challenges your authority or is disloyal, especially by committing the greatest sin of all – being a Republican – then you must do all you can, using all the powers at your disposal to destroy that person, and at all costs.
It is called “payback” in Chicagoese.
That is what happened with three-star general Michael Flynn, who first came under the angry eyes of then President Barack Obama and his right brain and dragon first lady Valerie Jarret, both well trained in the Chicago school of politics, when Flynn worked for Obama as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency and who they fired in 2014.
Barack and Valerie would say through their PR minions that Flynn was fired due to “issues of mismanagement and temperament,” but the real reason was because he wanted to launch an all-out U.S. assault on Islamic terrorism. But Flynn’s idea conflicted with Barack and Valerie’s agenda with the terrorists, many who came from or were financed by Iran, the country where Valerie was born and where she wanted to re-establish peaceful relations, despite its being a fanatical religions state and the most notorious terrorist country in the Middle East, if not the planet.
So Flynn’s first exit from Barack and Valerie’s White House was Chicago payback for his disloyalty to them and their vision. He was gone, or so they thought.
But Flynn had the further disrespect and audacity to re-emerged in 2016 as an ardent supporter of then Republican front-runner Donald Trump, and who after the election was to become Trump’s National Security Advisor, despite Barack personally advising the Donald against it.
In December, 2016, over a month after the election, Flynn had a telephone conversation with the then Russian envoy, Sergey Kislyak, to prepare for his upcoming role in Trump’s administration. But, never overlooking a chance for political advantage or payback an enemy, someone in Barack’s circle of trust had Flynn’s name “unmasked” in the phone call – a term meaning declassifying and revealing his name from a classified document – then onto Barack and Valerie’s loyalists in the media – CNN, The New York Times and the Washington Post – which was starting to breath fire over another story Barack and Valerie invented, that Trump had colluded with the Russians to rig the 2016 election.
The FBI, still under Barack’s orders, looked into the matter, but soon called off their investigation because there was nothing illegal there. But Barack and Valerie were undeterred.
On January 5th, 2017, two weeks before Trump’s inauguration, Barack and Valerie called into the Oval Office their inner circle of already loyal and corrupted intelligence friends, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper; Director of the CIA John Brennan, U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice; FBI Director James Comey; Vice President Joe Biden, along with deputy attorney general Sally Yates, who didn’t seem to be an Obama/Jarrett jackal like the others at the time.
After a meeting on Russian collusion, according to recently released Justice Department documents that exonerated Flynn, Barack (and Valerie, who was not mentioned in the document, but never left Barack’s side, so was there), asked Comey and Yates to stay behind.
Barack (and Valerie) said to Comey and Yates that he had “learned information about Flynn” and his conversation with the Russian envoy, and asked “whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”
Yates apparently was taken aback by the information that Barack knew of the phone conversation, not knowing what he was talking about, but figured it out “based on the conversation,” according to the documents.
“Yates did not recall Comey’s response to the President’s question about how to treat Flynn,” the account continued. “She was so surprised by the information she was hearing that she was having a hard time processing it and listening to the conversation at the same time.”
But Comey knew what to do. He was already a Barack and Valerie loyalist, a corrupted FBI director, who had in mid-summer 2016 declared that Hillary would not be prosecuted for her private e-mail server, and was free to continue her campaign. That was not Comey’s legal call, but no one knew that at the time, and Obama/Jarrett’s loyal friend and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, whose call it was, had conveniently recused herself from the matter.
Comey at the Jan. 5th meeting, then mentioned possibly using the Logan Act against Flynn to keep the case alive, referring to a 1799 act passed by Congress but never used, which forbids private citizens from engaging in unauthorized correspondence with foreign governments. That seemed to go nowhere.
But the very next day, Comey, Clapper and Brennan, visited Trump in New York, where Comey informed Barack and Valerie’s despised, newly-elected Republican enemy president, that there existed a dossier on him that was in the FBI that contained potentially damaging information on him.
This was the now infamous Steele Dossier, which Barack and Valerie helped direct, though they would say it was Hillary and the Democratic National Committee that paid for it. The existence of the dossier had already been leaked into the Obama/Jarrett media pipeline, though it didn’t prevent the Donald’s election.
But by Comey telling the Donald of its existence, he was letting the Donald know it was inside the FBI, though not the information that Barack and Valerie had managed with their fellow scumbags inside the Justice Department and FBI to use it in a series of applications to the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) Court, in order to spy on the Trump Campaign in mid-2016.
But Trump did not know that at the time Comey told him of the Steele Dossier, though Comey surely did, that he had helped work it through the FBI and FISA Court, along with Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Agent Peter “Insurance Policy” Strzok, lover of fellow agent Lisa “Potus wants to know everything we do” Page, who would be in charge of both the “Crossfire Hurricane” program to get Trump, and the “Crossfire Razor” campaign to get Flynn.
Outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice, meanwhile, sent an email on January 20, 2017, just hours before the Inauguration of Trump, in her last official act, writing cryptically: “The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.” Why would Barack and Valerie tell her to write that?
They got Flynn less than two weeks after the Inauguration, when Stroke and another agent went to Flynn’s new Executive Building office, after telling him he didn’t need a lawyer present, and in a friendly conversation asked Flynn if he had discussed Obama sanctions with the Russian envoy, which Flynn denied, and that Strozk used to charge him with lying to the FBI, which led to his resignation as National Security Advisor, and later his pleading guilty to lying to the FBI charges.
BI notes from the meeting said agents went to meet Flynn to “get him to lie, and/or get him fired.”
Comey, meanwhile, was busy taking notes of his conversations with the president elect before he was fired May 9th. Some of those notes, which were classified, were passed on later to his lawyer in New York, who gave them to the New York Times, and are credited with jump starting the appointment of a Special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian Collusion.
Mueller’s staff would keep fueling CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post, along with House Intelligence head and Barack and Valerie’s pal Adam Schiff, with ongoing lies about Trump’s connection to the Russians, pumped into our living rooms and offices for two years by the demon CNN newsreaders and Times and Post columnists.
When the news came last week of Barack’s (and Valerie’s) conversation Jan. 5, 2016 with their scumbags in intelligence and the FBI, along with old Joe Biden, they realized that the smoking gun had gone off on Oval Office corruption against political enemies that could make Richard Nixon’s look like child’s play, and they went into Obama damage control.
Barack issued a statement from his Georgetown compound to Yahoo News that the Justice Department’s move to end its case against Michael Flynn put “the rule of law at risk,” which was pretty hysterical, given the shit he and Valerie tried to pull with both Trump and Flynn.
But according to Obama/Jarrett Chicago rules, when you are cornered, attack back, with greater force. CNN and the New York Times and Washington Post came to his defense, demonizing Barr and calling for his head. They even rallied “2,000 former Justice department employees” to petition for Barr’s resignation. Another pal, CNBC anchor Chuck Todd, ran a doctored videotape of Barr talking about the Flynn case, in which he edited out the words “rule of law,” and made Barr look like a corrupt official.
Then, in his voice interview with Yahoo, after his slap at Barr, Barack spoke from the high road again, saying: “what we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided , and seeing others as an enemy – that has become a stronger impulse in American life.”
“And by the way, we’re seeing that internationally as well,” Barack went on, getting in his Trump demonizing pitch. “It’s part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty. It would have been bad even with the best of governments. It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset – of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else’ – when that mindset is operationalized in our government.”
Was Barack talking about Trump then, or himself and Valerie? Or maybe it’s okay with them as long as you show your loyalty.
