The Great Flynn Case Mystery
American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 2/13/2018 7:53:42 AM     Post Reply
I have been wondering why, shortly after Judge Rudolph Contreras was (without explanation) recused from hearing the Michael Flynn case and Judge Emmet G. Sullivan took over, Special Counsel Robert Mueller agreed to postpone the sentencing until May, after the inspector general´s report is due. I have no assurances that my suppositions are correct, but I´m beginning to think that at the next hearing of this case, Judge Sullivan will hear Mueller dismiss the case. Here´s how I come to that.The only reason I can imagine why Judge Contreras was recused – note: did not recuse himself – is that he

FBI, Hillary scandals could have

Again, if you are investing in US financial markets, keep a close eye on developments regarding the FBI and the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. The markets don’t like chaos, and that’s what we are headed for. There have been a lot of major developments recently, although most big media organizations are ignoring them. They will soon regret that. For now, I’d like to point out one development from recently released e-mails between those cheating FBI lovebirds, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Nobody seems to have caught this, so allow me. In June 2016 Strzok messaged Page to say this about Clinton’s e-mails: “She

Let’s begin with Godwin and get it out of the way. Imagine for a moment that Joseph Goebbels, propaganda minister for the Third Reich, was an amicable fellow (which he was not), smiled often (which he didn’t), and decided to go on a goodwill tour of the West, with the cutest cheerleaders from the Hitler Youth in tow. Imagine further that the Western media, knowing the scale of the atrocities committed by Nazi Germany, focused all its coverage on how cute the kids were and how well put-together Goebbels was—such a dashing fellow with his bespoke Hugo Boss suits, Italian shoes, and

The list of federal authority abuses during the eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency is mounting fast and furious these days. So much so that even the Establishment Media is finding it more and more difficult to ignore as seen by this just-published expose via The Hill: EXCERPT: …These kinds of abuses of power were nothing new, given the Obama team’s long history of this type of misconduct on everything from the Benghazi terror attack to the political misuse of the IRS. They weaponized the most fearsome government agencies to target, monitor and presumably illegally unmask political opponents, including members

CNN just lost its Fake News crown to NBC. Its effort to win the gold has been Olympic this month. The network sent its anchor to Pyongyang to show what a paradise North Korea is. Then it (and the rest of the Fake News media) fawned over Caligula Jong Un´s sister. Then it lied and said Koreans admire the Japanese. No, Koreans hate the Japanese after 35 years of cruelty when Japan colonized Korea.

Earlier today Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a letter to President Obama’s former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, about a curious email she sent to herself documenting a White House conversation between President Obama and former FBI head James Comey (pdf below). On the day of the inauguration, January 20th, 2017; at the very last minutes of the outgoing administration; Mrs. Rice documented a conversation which took place on January 5th, 2017 between President Obama, Asst.

In a curious article tonight Byron York presents an odd dynamic surrounding the Michael Flynn “lie narrative.” York points out that in March 2017, James Comey told a closed session of congress that he didn’t think Michael Flynn lied to FBI investigators; yet in December 2017, Flynn accepted a plea therein. York is puzzled – SEE HERE –As we previously shared, the answer to the question(s) presented within the Flynn article are really not that difficult to figure out. There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the President-Elect’s Transition Team talking to any foreign government, or any official within any foreign government.

Trump budget abandons fiscal conservatism —
and so does hypocritical GOP

Remember Republicans’ enduring commitment over most of our lifetimes to eliminate the federal budget deficit and trim the national debt? Well, forget it. In fact, with the GOP controlling the White House and both houses of Congress, the government this year will likely inflict nearly an additional trillion dollars on the existing $20 trillion national debt. And just like your credit card balance, the total federal obligations will also increase right along with now rising interest rates. Amazingly after all the promises and pleas for more than two generations, it seems everyone, except maybe a showboat senator making a futile

US President Donald Trump has spoken with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin about North Korea´s nuclear program, the Israel-Palestine conflict and Sunday´s tragic plane crash outside Moscow. The Kremlin said the two leaders discussed some aspects of the Middle East peace process in the telephone conversation before Putin´s meeting with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in the Russian capital. They also discussed North Korea´s bid to develop nuclear weapons, with the White House explaining President Trump had ´reiterated the importance´ of ensuring the Stalinist dictatorship is denuclearized.

WASHINGTON - California officials and clean air advocates are increasingly concerned the Trump administration may attempt to unravel a key program to drive down greenhouse gas emissions from automobile fleets while also jeopardizing the ability of California and other states to set pollution standards stronger than federal rules. Backed by automakers, Trump officials are in talks with their California counterparts to weaken tough vehicle tailpipe standards approved by the Obama administration. The standards are aimed at reducing greenhouse gases, but could also help reduce emissions that cause smog and particulate

A lot of Americans watching the volleys of memos and the Trump-Russia probe must be asking: Who the heck is Carter Page? You see the former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser in news footage -- smiling when he shouldn´t. His name appears in the infamous dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele on behalf of the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign. A secret warrant to surveil Page, based in part on that dossier, is the subject of the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo declassified last week. News profiles of Page portray him as an incautious mediocrity, choosing to appear

Scandal, Corruption, Lawbreaking —

The FISA-gate, Clinton emails, and Uranium One scandals are sort of reaching a consensus. Many things quite wrong and illegal were done by both Hillary Clinton and her entourage and members of the Obama agencies and administration — both the acts themselves and the cover-ups and omissions that ensued. Remember, in the FISA-gate scandal such likely widespread criminal behavior was predicated on two premises: 1) certainty of an easy Clinton victory, after which the miscreants would be not only excused but probably rewarded for their zeal; 2) progressive hubris in which our supposedly moral betters felt it their right,

It’d be nice to say that American media doesn’t hate this country. It’d be nice to claim that the American press, while maintaining objectivity and balancing against bias, is still inherently American – that they are patriots who love this country even as they report on its defects. Recall the quote from Daniel Patrick Moynihan while Ambassador to the United Nations: “Am I embarrassed to speak for a less than perfect democracy? Not one bit. Find me a better one. Do I suppose there are societies which are free of sin? No, I don’t. Do I think ours is, on

Remington Outdoor announced plans to file for bankruptcy on Monday, succumbing to a “Trump slump” that whacked sales by 30 percent in its most recent quarter. The 202-year-old Madison, NC, gun maker, saddled with an enormous amount of debt, said a debt-for-equity swap would lop off $700 million of its $950 million debtload. The restructuring will also provide $145 million in new capital. The prepackaged plan would also transfer 82.5 percent of the company’s equity to term loan lenders and the remaining 17.5 percent to third lien noteholders, the company said. “Difficult industry conditions make today’s agreement prudent,” Executive Chairman Jim Geisler said.

Christopher Steele’s unproven dossier is a mix of felony charges against President Trump and his people, as well as supposed gossip inside the Kremlin over computer hacking and personnel firings. For the ongoing special counsel investigation into suspected Trump-Russia election coordination, it is helpful to separate what counts: Dust away the atmospherics — supposed Kremlin intrigue — and focus on the collusion charges brought by the former British spy based on his paid intermediaries and Moscow sources. None is identified. Funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party, these specific dossier charges of secret spy missions and criminality are what

Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder raised eyebrows last week when he said that he may run for office, as in the Oval Office, and he’d make his final decision by the end of the year. Given the trail of abuse and misconduct he left in his wake at the Justice Department, the opposing ads pretty much write themselves. His time in the Obama administration was plagued with corruption that left a stain on the Justice Department, and he resigned with a dark cloud of scandal hovering over him. Holder is the first Cabinet appointee to be held in contempt

Beijing — A group of influential Catholics published an open letter Monday to express their shock and disappointment about a report that the Vatican could soon reach a deal with the Chinese government, warning that it could create a schism in the church in China. (snip) The Communist Party in China, under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, has repeatedly destroyed crosses and churches, while the state-backed China Patriotic Catholic Association maintains its heavy-handed control over the church, they said. In his keynote speech to a major Communist Party Congress in October, Xi underlined that the religion in China must also

Hill answered, “Yes, that’s what the law says,” adding on Friday, “Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, not gender identity.” Hill made it clear that some complaints by transgenders students will indeed be investigated, but bathroom

On the bench, Clarence Thomas takes precisely the opposite approach from that of Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes, who famously quipped that “the Constitution is what the judges say it is.” Under that rubric, too many justices have imposed their own policy preferences, Thomas says: “You make it up, and then you rationalize it.” According to his own strictly originalist judicial credo, set forth in a 1996 speech, “The Constitution means not what the Court says it does but what the delegates at Philadelphia and at the state ratifying conventions understood it to mean. . . .

Democratic money man Tom Steyer is constructing a panel of mental health officials and nuclear weapons experts to support his months-long campaign to impeach President Donald Trump. Steyer, a former hedge fund manager turned liberal activist, plans on cobbling together a group of experts Monday night to discuss Trump’s mental health and his nuclear ambitions. It’s part of his mission to oust Trump. He used various social media platforms in October 2017 to launch a “need to impeach” Trump movement. More than four million people have signed his petition so far, but House Democrats are not enamored with the move. House Minority Leader

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle were in attendance on Monday as their portraits were unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. While President Obama´s striking portrait by Kehinde Wiley garnered audible gasps of awe from the audience, Michelle´s portrait was not as warmly welcomed. Many online said that Amy Sherald´s portrait didn´t even look like Michelle. ´Amy Sherald should have met Michelle Obama before making that portrait,´ one user wrote. Others went so far as to criticize the artist´s skill, comparing the work to a kid´s art project. ´Okay legit that Michelle Obama portrait looks

On Monday, the panel of MSNBC’s Deadline: White House giddily dished about whether they might have finally stumbled upon a narrative that could cause President Trump to lose the support of his otherwise consistent base.As the panel covered the Rob Porter domestic abuse scandal, Donny Deutsch speculated that some less “evolved” Americans might continue to support Donald Trump because they consider victims of domestic abuse “collateral damage.” He lamented that “most of them are not watching news." Time writer and former Rand Paul aide Elise Jordan was more optimistic about the media’s prospects of shaking loose some stubborn Trump supporters.
