Flynn’s Resignation is a Victory For the Corrupt Establishment

It has been an exciting and tough month for the Trump administration. Daily I watch the daily press briefings and the mainstream media has gone insane.  Trump has expanded media access to smaller and some alternate outlets.  This is a break in tradition.  Establishment politicians in the Senate fight tooth and nail to delay allowing the Cabinet to be approved.  Behind the scenes and not well covered, upper management of many government agencies quake in fear of those Cabinet appointments.  All these groups are working against the proposed Trump Cabinet because they fear it.  This is the corrupt establishment that fears losing their unconstitutional power, cushy paychecks, and being forced to find real jobs.  General Michael Flynn’s resignation is a victory for the corrupt establishment.  The Trump administration caved to pressure and draining the swamp just became more difficult.

The election of Donald Trump was a revolution against the status quo.  Average Americans waking up to the reality of corrupt Washington establishment flocked to support outside candidates like Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.  Bernie Sanders talked tough about the big banks but was openly a socialist.  The problem Americans are rebelling against is too much socialism already written into law.  Over regulation is destroying manufacturing, welfare is enslaving tens of millions to vote for phony promises, and the banks defraud their customers with impunity.  Sanders proposed being a cure for herpes by having sex with more people with syphilis.  Bernie Sanders being a socialist would have only made things worse.

Instead America chose to vote for Donald Trump.  Trump promised to deport illegal immigrants and secure the southern border.  He promised to renegotiate our trade deals and cut regulation to revive American manufacturing.  Perhaps most importantly to me, he promised a return to the rule of law.  That meant that powerful politicians, big banks, and corporate giants would be held accountable for violating the law.  These giants being held accountable like an everyday citizen promised to stamp down on the fraud and cronyism common in a corrupt America. I wrote this article and this article about the corruption and how and why it operates.

That promise from Donald Trump later morphed into a new promise, the promise to drain the swamp.  Draining the swamp meant bleeding the corruption out of the Washington DC establishment and government organizations.  This was a declaration of war on the lifetime bureaucrats that inhabit the IRS, CIA, EPA, BLM, State Department and all of the other government agencies.  It was a threat to take away their powers to write regulations and guide the policies that created our current dysfunctional America.

To fulfill this promise to drain the swamp, Donald Trump strategically selected members of his cabinet.  Betsy Devos is a strong supporter of school choice, vouchers, and strongly opposes Common Core.  She represents exactly the opposite of the educational industrial complex run by the teachers unions that currently soaks the educational system for tax payer dollars.  Betsy Devos will work to hold teachers accountable for how well they educate children and seek to return to schools to being controlled at a local level rather than being directed poorly from a federal level.

Scott Pruitt was another important Donald Trump selection to fight the bureaucratic government corruption in the EPA.  As the Oklahoma attorney general, Scott Pruitt sued to the EPA on 14 separate occassions to block what he viewed as unconstitutional regulation.  Pruitt described the idea of man made global warming a “religious belief.”  I agree with his assessment, I have a strong science and math background and distrust the methodology of modelling science that created this theory.  I wouldn’t even call man made global warming a theory, but a thinly supported hypothesis with evidence that can not be consistently reproduced.

Donald Trump made two selections for his Cabinet to drain the swamp I consider the most important.  The first is Jeff Sessions to become the Attorney General and restore the rule of law.  The second was General Michael Flynn to be the National Security Adviser and to clean up the corruption in our intelligence agencies, especially the CIA.  This started an information war that really got rolling in early December. General Flynn represented a very real threat to upper management in the CIA and they have been attacking Donald Trump through the media to fight back because of it.  It has been a dirty disinformation campaign that I have followed quite closely.

General Flynn and Donald Trump moved with astounding speed in the opening days of the administration in an attempt to remove the fangs from the venomous corrupt intelligence community.  Saturday January 28 2017 Donald Trump signed a presidential memorandum to change the make up of the National Security Council.  It excluded the inter-army Chief of Staff and the director of the CIA from the council.  Trump and Flynn also announced a desire to eliminate the post of Director of National Intelligence.  This was done to lessen the power of the Bush/Obama intelligence giant.

In order to clean up the corruption in the CIA that continuously feeds false propaganda to the mainstream media to brainwash Americans into believing falsehoods, Trump looked to remove the top power players with Flynn advising him how.  To really drain the swamp in the CIA though, getting rid of John Brennan is not enough.  Trump and Flynn needed time to dismantle the upper management of the CIA.  To do this they would need to purge the CIA of many of its GS-15, 16, and 17 level employees.  These ranks represent Colonels and Generals and they attain their rank by being politically pliant.  The ones in position today are Obama supporters, so staunchly opposed to Donald Trump’s agenda.  Still sitting in their seats of power, they can launch attacks through their mainstream media proxy.

The CIA and mainstream media spent a lot of time and effort discrediting themselves by publishing easily debunked fake news stories.  So they changed tactics away from directly targeting President Trump and instead targeted General Flynn.  The Washington Post, a favorite mouthpiece for the CIA, published an article on Feb 9 2017.   It made the accusation that General Flynn discussed with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak what the Trump administrations plans were for dealing with the sanctions imposed by Barack Obama before taking office.  This implied General Flynn directly undermined the authority of the Obama administration before he had to power to do so.  General Flynn denied the meetings took place, and then had to back away from his denial.  This points to hard evidence of the meetings.  It also points to General Flynn lying.

As I was discussing about the CIA’s upper management, although John Brennan is gone and they no longer have a place on the National Security Council, they are still dangerous.  If a rattlesnake with no fangs bites you, that doesn’t mean you might not die a week later if you don’t medically treat the bite correctly.  A rattlesnake’s mouth is loaded with infectious bacteria that if allowed to fester and infect the victim, can be just as deadly over time. From the evidence above, I have to conclude that the CIA was running bugging operations on the Trump administration officials during the period of transition of power.  This gave them recording of General Flynn’s discussions, so they turned the information into a weapon.

The fact is that the meetings between an incoming administration official such as General Flynn and the Russian Ambassador are not really uncommon.  What was talked about might have been a real breach in what is allowed though.  By denying the accusation, General Flynn set himself up for being caught in a lie when evidence was presented.  The mainstream media that oppose all things Trump, took him being caught in a lie and ran wild.  That is why I can write so much of this article off the cuff.  I have been reading article after article for days on this subject. This backed General Flynn and the Trump administration into a corner, come clean about the discussions, or at fear of the recordings being leaked, General Flynn could step down.

Monday night February 13 the CIA succeeded in fatally infecting the victim and General Michael Flynn resigned as National Security Adviser.  This is a blow to President Trump’s inside ring of nonconformists.  General Michael Flynn previously exposed the CIA and Hillary Clinton State Department for creating the conditions in Syria and Iraq for the formation of ISIS.  The 2012 DIA classified reports showed the Obama administration ignored good intelligence to begin our illegal intervention creating the Syrian civil war.  That led to the rise of ISIS and the current migrant crisis destroying Europe.  That whistle blowing effort by General Flynn got him fired from his position as the head of DIA.  That is why the CIA targeted him and used the media to destroy him.


This represents the first step backwards for Donald Trump in his quest to drain the swamp.  Always before with the help of Steve Bannon, the Trump administration fought the negative mainstream press ruthlessly. This time a key team member to Donald Trump’s strategy to end the American empire and return to an America first policy got taken down. General Flynn is now the first casualty in the war between Donald Trump and the mainstream media, corrupt establishment and the CIA.

This will be a momentum blow to the Trump administration.  Inside there are the nonconformists who seek real change like Flynn, Bannon, and Sessions.  Then there are the establishment that seek a continued status quo like Preibus.  This was a victory for the establishment and that is a bad sign.  The Trump administration showed weakness in the face of adversity and blood is in the water.  The media, and behind them the CIA are the sharks circling in the water.  This fight is just getting started.

  1. Hi Martin,
    I can’t help but wonder that the reason the leftist establishment democrats continue to delay Trump’s cabinet is because the longer they delay, the longer they keep their corrupt establishment in place and continue to wreak havoc on the Trump establishment. As you said in your article, they are quaking in fear that they will have to go and find a real job. I think it has more to do with the bigger plan of causing strife from within to undermine Trump. Once his cabinet is in and they are out, no more disruption from within. I think that’s been their plan all along and it seems to be working. Trump seems to be taking his time draining the swamp and he must be aware of the havoc this is causing internally for him. I don’t profess to know what Trump is thinking or what his big plan is, but I do feel confident he knows what he is doing and he will succeed. It’s just that, the suspense is killing me. I too am enjoying sitting back and watching the circus.

    1. I think you have a pretty accurate appraisal of the delays and why. Trump is facing something that he has never had to deal with in his running his own business, government bureaucracy. Between the government unions and stupid regulations regarding being able to demote or fire government employees, Trump is in a position of finding himself incredibly constrained. He also has absolutely no real control over the actions of the Senate which I personally like because there does need to be the separation of powers, but the progressive Democrats and the neoconservative Republicans in the Senate fear that draining of the swamp. Due to that, they both want to delay the enactment of Trump’s Cabinet. I am seriously considering writing an article on how Trump will have to wage his war against the deep state to drain the swamp. It will be dismantling of the current politically promoted GS-15, 16, 17, and 18 class of government managers running the alphabet soup of organizations. The Senate is a thorn in Trump’s foot, but these politically promoted managers are creating the leaks and disinformation that is Trump’s true enemy. Due to government regulations and union agreements, Trump finds himself in a boxing ring with his shoelaces tied together and one arm strapped behind his back. I knew this would prove to be a long and ugly struggle to drain the swamp.
      I watched a similar process when my Dad’s organization tried to railroad him out of out of government work in 1991 and 1992. The Cold War was ending and they wanted to get rid of what the establishment considered the “cowboys”. That process blackballed my Dad against gaining further promotion on the pay scale beyond a GS-14 which is the same as a Lt Col. They left him in idle for months at a time to make him feel useless, they pulled him into to interrogate him on “loyalty issues” due to the fact he submitted reports disproving the political narrative to make him angry. They screwed with him for almost 2 full years trying to make him quit. They also did it to others and sometimes were successful. Then due to our crappy foreign policy Al Qaeda and some other terror related problems popped up and my Dad suddenly had a job again. He ran the old Soviet desk for three years and then the Africa/Middle East desk for the final years of his career. He was placed running a GS-16 level position for over six years even though he had been blackballed on the promotion list and was in reality a GS-14. He put up with the indignity to get a full retirement package.
