President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn Resigns

 

President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has resigned, the White House said late Monday after week of hounding by leftists insane to destroy anybody associated with President Trump. Their first target was the attacks on now Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos after which was Attorney General Jeff Sessions which was as much as it went for President Trump’s appointments before each was accepted. Had similar complete idiocy and rejectivism been shown to President Obama’s appointments, especially minority appointments whose actual resumes left some room for improvement, if we may be polite about their qualifications, the media would have been in twenty-four hour a day, non-stop, over the top screeching about racism and hatefulness of the Republicans for actually questioning the candidates instead of being the rubber stamp they are supposed to be for Presidential nominations because the President, when it was Barack Hussein Obama, is so above reproach that his appointments must be blessed by the Highest Sources, the ACLU. Now every Presidential appointment must go through the trial by fire and ice, water and air, above and below and any other opposites which must mean they can never measure up to what the Leftist Democrats demand of them. General Michael Flynn’s great sin was actually preparing to do the job he was being appointed to before the Senate piranhas got their pound of flesh. He will become the celebrated sacrificial lamb which will be proof that all of Trump’s appointments were soiled and dirty and do not deserve to hold positions in the anointed realm of leftist government supremacism. Only the Elizabeth Warren fake identity politics wunderkind that hold esteemed resumes filled with academic accomplishment and complete devoid of real world accomplishment as such a realm they never dared to set foot as such is unclean and would soil them with reality, something our elitists avoid more than death itself. General Michael Flynn was a man of letters and real world experience on the hardest of all test grounds, the battlefield where lives and real gains and losses are measured in actual yardsticks. It was in this world where reality costs lives and political gains are figments of the imagination coming from Washington from the likes of Ms. Warren but are measured in inches and foxholes and the men who man those foxholes. His world was far from the antiseptic discussions in the Congress where everything becomes numbers on sheets of paper held aloft to prove points they often have no relevance held between. In the world of General Michael Flynn those pieces of paper represent real Dog-Tags of real men and women who have mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, wives and families and children, fiancés, boyfriends and girlfriends and every one of those people need to receive a letter written with the emotions, tenderness, understandings and consolations which will make each loss all the more bearable and to sooth them while conveying that you actually had personal knowledge and attachment with their beloved. With General Michael Flynn such knowledge of his men was a definite possibility as he did more than most to know each person under his command, a Herculean task beyond the imagination of most in Congress who now celebrate this man’s surrender to vindictive and mean-spirited victimization.

The media will cover this as a great weeding out of the unfit from President Trump’s Cabinet and advisors and claim that there should be a long list of additional resignees and when the Democrats regain the Senate, as is proper and the natural order of things, then there will be blood in the water and a feeding frenzy will begin and President Trump’s Cabinet will be emptied and the President impeached once they gain all of Congress, also part of the natural order according to the mainstream media. Watching the tantrums from the Senate Democrats and the outraged diatribes by the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken and sundry other elitists whose lives and reality seldom have met has actually served to make many a reluctant Trump supporter become an active Trump supporter. The unbridled hatred and demeaning of the entire half of the nation which voted for, as the Democrats (or should we call them DemonRats) describe Trump, the Devil incarnate about to spread brimstone upon the Earth in the form of overt pollution allowed when the entirety of EPA restrictions have been swept aside in an effort to please his masters in industry making the United States and even worse polluter than China. We need remember that China had to close down three-quarters of the manufacturing and limit electrical power use in Beijing before the Olympic Games so as not to poison the lungs of the competitors or those coming to view the games and see modern China for the first time. Tell us if your city has pollution so bad it could inflict lung damage to a Nigerian sprinter just because he ran the hundred meter dash without breathing equipment. Even at its worst, Pittsburgh or Denver or Los Angeles were never that bad, and these were the worst of the worst back in the day (the 1960s through 1980s). The United States has met more pollution targets than even the Europeans have done and the United States met them without approving the Kyoto Protocols because in the United States technology was not hindered by restriction on experimentation and risks which some paid dividends and others proved to be the wrong direction; the thing is by allowing trials we learned and improved faster than those restricted to taking the most cautious of routes. This is the same as can be said of the Cabinet as they all have real world experience where trying something unproven is permitted, not condemned out of hand as such has been condemned by Congress often in the past. There is a lot to be said for working where there are real consequences over those whose career has been politics where the consequences are paid by the public, never the politicians.

 

The media and the left are consumed by rabid hatred of President Trump and everything he might do and anyone he might appoint. Their rioting in many major cities and on campuses across the nation with paid specialists who come in at the high point of such demonstrations when emotions are most stoked wearing their ninja black outfits replete with masks hiding their identity and then proceed to lead those they can instigate or inspire in destroying property, breaking store windows, overturning cars, setting them on fire and even stealing merchandise from the stores whose windows they smashed and if they come across an unfortunate individual wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, they will harass and possibly actually attack and mug that individual for having the temerity to trespass on their assigned route of destruction. The problem is that these instigators are paid and not grassroots inspired protesters. They are sent with the intention of causing as much damage as they are able and thusfar they have been granted free range to do as they desire. The fact that the police have been instructed to stand down and allow this violence is indicative of the disease rotting away America’s major cities. The fact that police are told not to prevent or even interfere with violent and destructive demonstrators, ones who are obviously organized and paid to perform this task, makes one suspect that the backing for these rioters are well connected and have the means and influence to get the political leadership of these cities and the administrators of the colleges and universities to permit and all but encourage such violence as if there is a concerted effort to radicalize as much of the population as possible. This was part of what gave way to our fears that this is a movement designed to take control of the government through violent threat and the promise to bring order back to the nation by a coming future savior, possibly such running for President in 2020 and having Congress declare Martial Law and after that the die is cast and all that needs be accomplished to overthrow the Republic will have been accomplished. This fear is what caused us to write the article The Fascist Playbook is Being Repeated Now covering the end result of these protests if they should continue to grow and become an undercurrent type of movement which can be cast as subversive by an actual radicalist popularist leader using such for their own political goals and gains. If this sounds confusing or you are unclear on this, please read the article and possibly do some research and the pattern becomes clearer the more you know. This pattern begins by undermining government and making the current leadership appear unpopular, unable to actually govern and inept. This is used by a savior who runs on a platform of restoration of the ways things are supposed to be and how they were when all was well with the nation. After four years of cities slowly growing more disrupted until they are burning come the 2020 election cycle and President Trump is opposed by every mayor and thus unable to quell the violence and the Democrat candidate claims they warned that Trump would ruin the nation and if you just give them the power to do what needs be done, then order will return. Order returns, but not as one would expect or desire, it becomes an absolute order replete with oppression of all freedoms, fascism.

 

But the victimizing of National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn is a sad day and something which should be mourned, not celebrated. But the message which will be played is that he was being subversive and breaking all the rules of decorum by meeting with the Russian Ambassador’s aides to discuss possibilities once President Trump took office. On one side the media is condemning Trump for taking over ten days to place all his advisors and Cabinet into place as well as the near two-hundred Ambassadors while all the time demanding more vetting of every appointee and attempting to reject any of his appointments on the smallest of discrepancies which can be uncovered. About the only question not asked has been the famous trick question of, “When will you stop beating your wife, a date, that is all we need, just a date.” The Democrats and their friends in the media and entertainment will laud them for chasing this disreputable scoundrel from office ignoring the fact that the man they are smearing is so far above their petty crap and such a superior individual with more respect and love of the nation than many of them could imagine having that any comparison between them and General Michael Flynn is laughable if what they have sewn was not so sad. President Trump has already brought forward General Keith Kellogg to be acting National Security Adviser and we would love for this to be his actual nominee. There will likely be rumors about why this honorable man is also not worthy of such trust and high office. Perhaps he was within five miles of a Russian Consulate during his last vacation and they will demand to know what he was doing in such vicinity of a Russian institution. The rabid and vile accusatorial nature of the media and Democrats, nay, DemonRats as it is not all the Democrats but a select and vicious groups of attack pit bulls who are to be scorned for their misrepresentation of their responsibility to advise and consent, they instead are attack and dissent. These DemonRats are committing the exact crime they accused any Republican Senator of committing should they even have gone so far as asking a question of any appointee by President Obama calling such acts to be stonewalling and impeding the due process of advise and consent which they were charged with performing. Oh how quick the story changes with a change of administrations, both in the media and in the definition of the powers of the Senate where advise and consent goes from simple consent to critical inspection. On that alone is the definition of hypocrisy.

Judge Neil Gorsuch Deserves Honest Validation

 

The first and foremost thing the public and the world need to know about Judge Neil Gorsuch, back in 2006 he was confirmed by the Senate without recorded opposition. Not a single Senator found reason to raise even a single doubt about his decency and qualifications to serve as a Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Denver, Colorado. Imagine this, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had nary a complaint about confirming Judge Gorsuch and now claims he is, “very hostile appointment” and “well outside the mainstream of American legal thought.” At a CNN town hall gathering Minority Leader Pelosi further criticized Judge Gorsuch stating, “If you breathe air, drink water, eat food, take medicine or in any other way, interact with the courts, this is a very bad decision.” How in eleven years did Judge Neil Gorsuch somehow went from perfectly adequate and even unobjectionable when appointed by President George W. Bush, not exactly somebody on fantastic relations with Minority Leader Pelosi and often criticized quite severely by her, to be a Judge for the Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and now is the spawn of all evils. What a transformation from unobjectionable to threat to the continuation of humanity “If you breathe air, drink water, eat food, take medicine or in any other way, interact with the courts…” What a transformation, or was the Democrats who have changed in the ensuing eleven years?

We are wondering when they will get to commenting he enjoys murdering innocent fish as he enjoys fly fishing. Then there is his making long tracks in virgin snow when he gets a chance because he skis. He refused to sleep nights in Howard Johnsons Inns, well, because he worked as the overnight desk clerk. We could not think of a related evil but are awaiting the Democrat blame gamers to find fault with the fact he raises horses and goats and chickens on his Colorado farm. The Democrats have claimed they will stop at nothing to prevent Judge Gorsuch from taking the ninth seat on the Supreme Court. Some claim that until there is a President who received a majority of the popular vote the Senate should not permit any new Supreme Court appointees to be placed on the bench. The Democrats have already warned of a war in the media should the Republicans do as Harry Reid did to get judges approved over any Republican filibuster and use the same filibuster busting majority vote being sufficient for cloture in Presidential appointments. Apparently what is good for the Democrat Goose is not to be allowed for the Republican gander. It is another case of do as we say, not as we do for the Democrats and the mainstream media may also jump in on the act for attempting to deny the Republicans any comfort copying the Democrat play manual.

 

The fight over Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education has been a fight done well in service of the Teacher Unions with a full time assist of the media. Betsy DeVos’ main crime was being educated in private schools and realizing that the private schools outperform the public institutionalized education system. You see, Betsy DeVos has been an advocate for private schools, parochial schools, charter schools such as the Success Academy Schools and the chain of the KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) Schools for most of her professional life. Should the Department of Education begin to make parental choice more readily available for inner city and other parents through voucher systems or money follows the student programs, then the public schools might lose students to higher performing schools and perhaps even bring the entire public school systems to their knees making them shape up or be replaced by these more successful schools.

Imagine if every student carried with them a dollar outlay equal to three quarters of what the public schools in their area spend per student. How long before schools with far better results start cropping up and accepting students for this lesser amount. The local government saves money and parents get to choose where and with what emphasis their children are educated. Schools will start offering specialized courses where students can be taught a trade as well as receiving a decent basic education. The department of education could become a clearing house for information rather than an actual education provider. Schools will still need to produce quality student outcomes as the parents will not place their children in under performing schools thus eliminating the schools which do not produce well educated students. This could spell the end of the public school systems as we know them or perhaps these schools will actually find ways of weeding out poor performing teachers and a more conducive manner of teaching their students. Perhaps the education system could benefit from an overhaul where those schools which produce the best students receive the most students and succeed while poorly performing schools lose students and quickly falter and are replaced. Apparently Betsy DeVos’s error of her ways is believing that schools should produce quality educations over teacher job guarantees, what a novel concept.

If this becomes the standard for all government products perhaps it would be an improvement worth giving its shot. Would we be happy should the military not produce the best qualified fighting force and instead simply offer guaranteed careers for officers no matter their ability to perform their duties? We would never accept incompetence from the military any more than we would frequent a restaurant which delivered poorly prepared meals. Restaurants are not in business to guarantee the chef a job once they have worked there for two years even if they do not learn new offerings as times change. It becomes keep up or shut up and hit the road. Hospitals would not keep a surgeon who refuses to learn new techniques and allow him to use older procedures just out of loyalty, they demand that physicians learn and keep up with the times or retire. Government should operate under similar means and perhaps that could be something that Donald Trump could introduce and the United States be all the better for such. We will see and let us all hope that such is in store. Improving government services should be job one of the President and all of the many different Congresscritters. Unfortunately, this has not been the standard procedure, so perhaps bringing in Steve Bannon to shake things up a little is an idea whose time has factually been a long time coming.
