UNMASKING DATES SUGGEST EVEN CIA SPIED UPON FLYNN

There’s something odd about the transcript of Michael Flynn’s December 29, 2016, phone call with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, the one that apparently contained some mention of sanctions. There’s no unmasking request that corresponds to that call.

What?

Believe it or not, in the list of unmasking requests passed along to Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson by acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, who assures them it is complete, there is no request on December 29. There are quite a few BEFORE December 29, and we can’t tell just from the list what transcripts they involved, but the dates tell us they couldn’t possibly have been for the Kislyak call because it hadn’t happened yet.

Everyone and his dog seemed to want Flynn’s name unmasked on December 14-15-16, and on December 28 there’s a request by the U.S. ambassador to Turkey (huh?) Then it gets quiet till January 5, 2017, which is the date of that big Oval Office meeting and also the day White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough calls for Flynn’s name to be unmasked. There are still more calls for the unmasking after that, including on January 17, when Vice President Joe Biden did it.

MORE UNREST IN CALIFORNIA

As angry protests mount against power-mad officials who are crushing people’s jobs, businesses and constitutional rights in the name of “protecting” them from the coronavirus, both sides are getting more creative. For instance, Laguna Beach, California, officials reportedly didn’t like protesters waving American flags and Trump flags. They couldn’t ban the display of flags, so the City Council voted unanimously to ban flagpoles from protests, on grounds that they could be used as weapons. Note that nobody had ever actually hit anyone with a flagpole at previous protests, but just in case...

On the other hand, in the saner town of Atwater, California, city officials used the leftist government’s tactics against them. The city council voted unanimously to declare Atwater a “sanctuary city for businesses” that need to reopen. That goes for churches and non-profits, too.

The city warned businesses that they can’t protect them from state retaliation, such as yanking licensing. But if the self-declared “sanctuary state” can refuse to comply with federal law to protect criminal illegal aliens, they don’t have a moral leg to stand on in arguing that a “business sanctuary city” has to comply with state laws.

On a related subject, starting today, illegal immigrants in California can begin applying for $125 million worth of COVID-19 relief aid, thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom. Despite the current financial crisis, which has led to cutting $19 billion from the state’s school budget, Newsom somehow found $75 million in taxpayer funds, matched by $50 million in private donations, to dispense to illegal immigrants. Republicans sued to block it, arguing that dispensing public funds to illegal aliens is barred by both state and federal law, but a federal judge sided with Newsom.

Something to remember when Nancy Pelosi (D., California) promotes her $3 trillion bill to make taxpayers nationwide bailout blue states that claim to be in desperate need of money.

ABUSE OF POWER VIRUS UPDATE

Abuse of Power Virus Update: In Salem, Oregon, a hair salon owner who dared to try to return to work has been slapped with a $14,000 fine for violating Democratic Gov. Kate Brown’s lockdown order. And I’m sure entirely coincidentally, Child Protective Services showed up at her house to question her and her family.

The salon owner, Lindsey Graham (yes!) refused to be intimidated and vowed to fight the fine and shutdown order. She said, “Everyone’s job is essential, not because of what we do or how we do it, but because it’s how we make our living.” Hear, hear! Although I imagine by now that a number of Oregon residents are thinking of a certain politician who is appearing less and less essential to keep around every day.

BOTTOM STORY OF THE DAY

Bottom Story of the Day: anti-Trump former Republican and Michigan Rep. Justin Amash announced that after much reflection, he is ending his consideration of a 2020 run for President. I think I speak for most Americans when I say, “Justin Amash was considering running for President?” If I wanted to speak for the 

THE BIGGEST POLITICAL STORY OF THE YEAR AND IN MY LIFETIME

Most of the media is focused on various aspects of the continuing saga of the Wuhan Coronavirus, but I think they intentionally tried to ignore the biggest political story of the year and in my lifetime. With the release of long-sought-after federal documents related to the Russian collusion story, we now know with certainty what many of us suspected. At the highest levels of government not only the FBI Director, the CIA Director, the Attorney General, the National Security Advisor, but the Vice President, the chief of staff of the President, and most likely President Obama himself, there was a concentrated, coordinated attempt to prevent the election of Donald Trump and after his election and even after his swearing in to stage what amounted to a coup d’etat against the elected President of the United States. It turns out, it wasn’t the Russians we needed to be worried about meddling in our elections—it was the highest-ranking law enforcement and intelligence officials in our land. Not foot soldiers carried away with sophomoric ambition, but those placed in leadership positions of authority to direct the full power of the United States against their President, and frankly, to strip you the voter of the integrity of your vote and destroy the entire electoral system.

I don’t say these things lightly. We now know that the decision to expose and to frame decorated Lt. General Michael Flynn, a 33 year veteran of combat was known by Vice President Biden, CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, and numerous others who knew that the clandestine efforts to entrap Flynn and destroy Donald Trump were more than unethical, but flagrantly illegal.

It was the current Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell who did what should have been done 3 years ago—he declassified the documents and made them public. On the very day they were released, Joe Biden denied knowing about them on Good Morning America, but when pressed, pretended he didn’t understand the question and admitted that he did in fact know about the efforts to “unmask” General Flynn. Now granted, given Joe Biden’s penchant for speaking in a way that sounds like chopped word salad, maybe he didn’t understand the question, but he sure did as Vice President.

Here’s what we now can say with certainty. James Clapper, John Brennan, James Comey, and others lied to Congress under oath. Congressman Adam Schiff of California, who said repeatedly that he had 100% solid evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia, was 100% lying about it. How do we know? Because not even during the $35 million Mueller witch hunt was a shred of such evidence found, and if Schiff had such, he would have produced it to the media he adores so much-or would have brought it up during the sham impeachment process. He never did, because he never HAD any evidence. Equally disgusting is that the media played right along and never demanded to see his evidence. They just repeated his outrageous lies and ignored the truth when it slapped them in the face.

Your country has been turned upside down by being shut down over a deadly virus. But we can recover from a disease with discoveries of vaccines and cures. What we can’t recover from is having dirty rotten scoundrels elevated to the highest levels of our government, placed in positions of trust who then use your tax money to stage an attempted coup, and then to put forth a full-scale coverup by a calculated and cynical campaign of lies, misinformation, and destruction of the lives of patriots not to mention showing their contempt for the Constitution. I think the taxpayers ought to fund one more get together of those who did this. A reunion of sorts. Let’s gather them at Gitmo and give them years to reflect on their betrayal of trust and treason to their country. Yes, those are strong words. But I choose them deliberately. The damage to our great Republic is severe. And those who did it should be held accountable. And it needs to happen NOW!

Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)

For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

Romans 11:36 (KJV)

    Thank you Mike for all you do and information we can trust!
    Do you think any of these crimes will ever be prosecuted? They have put President Trump through living heck and General Flynn as well ... Why no consequences for any of those named???

    I agree with you all the way. They all must pay for what we have experienced. If they could do this to Gen Flynn and also to a the President elected by the people; they can try to do it to any citizen who gives them a problem. Obama and the IRS looking into certain citizens personal life etc. I never voted for him because I did my research and didn't like the smell of things. It is time for justice. Treason is punishable.

    Absolutely right Mike! These people who spit on the Constitution that they had sworn to defend and uphold NEED to be taken out of circulation and our President and his Administration should be finally vindicated. These people should be hanged as traitors but, in this day and age, maybe GTMO might serve a more lasting example to those who would follow in their steps.

    Kudos to our President for publicly stating that he is taking HCQ as a prophylactic. Maybe now, somehow, he will require the CDC, FDA and others to provide documented evidence for their negative references on the general usage of HCQ. Do what the majority of nations have done worldwide, blanket our people with HCQ/AZI to break the back of this plague so that we can get back to work!

    Mike I agree with you on them going to GITMO, unfortunately American citizens cannot be put there. My husband was stationed there several years ago and he CV told me that. I am so glad I started reading your commentary and watching your show. Thanks for all of your hard work and your staffs hardwork.

    Well, I'm believing predictions are even more accurate that Republicans will not have the gonads to bring justice to "Obamagate Players." Just read in Newsmax that Barr doesn't intend to go after Obama or Biden. Just as I thought, no justice will ever be served by swamp dwellers or to the swamp dwellers of Washington DC.

    I'm old with no business to worry about. The Oregon salon owner that not only was fined $14,000 but had her family threatened by an overofficious government entity may have needed to "go with the flow." These people will not be deterred until there is bloodshed! I am not 'completely' advocating for violence, as noted, being old it is easier to say that 'if any of these wannabe tyrants send ANYONE to my adobe with the intent to do much of anything 'they' dictate, I hope they send unattached, as in having no family, because there is a movie out there with the title, "There Will Be Blood!" I am trying very hard to not be braggadocio, however, if things do not change in this country can anarchy not be far off? Almost forgot, should I survive that first 'assault,' these tyrants should know I, as well as others, will be coming for them next!

    Yes, we all know this lying, dishonesty and illegal BS by the democrats and the news media has been going on ever since President Trump was elected as President and even before he was elected, however what is being done about it? We all know they should be held accountable. prosecuted and jailed for all of these things, but are they? As far as I can see, it is only accusations and talk and the democrats and news media are still lying, being dishonest and doing things illegally and they will continue until something is done about it.

    Besids what they did during 1916 and what they have done since, Obama and crew had 8 years to not only wreck our economy but wreck our constitution, so the large opera singer has not sang the last. Keep up the good work and hopefully the USA can last another 200 + years.

    I think with what is going on that these people that have committed crimes against Flynn and I am including Obama and Hillary and actually all of Obama's Admin. in this.........shouldn't they all have their Security Clearances taken away? After all these years I would bet that Hillary still has hers, too! Years ago and I mean in the early 1960's when I worked for an aircraft company in Downey CA and I left the company, they took mine. I don't think working in D.C. should be any different! I don't trust any of those people there now and haven't for a long time!

    Thank you, Governor, for keeping us up to date on the news, especially the news that affects our constitutional rights. I personally cannot listen to all the garbage news condeming our duely elected president of things he's never done. The worst of it is, the common people would NEVER know of some of these things were it not for honest, truth-seeking, God fearing individuals such as you. I can't even wrap my mind around some of the TREASONIST activities of some our highly paid government officials. Sending them to GITMO is too good for them. They DESERVE the most severe punishment for their treasonist activities. I do not say this lightly, but they are trying to literally DESTROY our beloved United States & all the goodness it has stood for over the past 200+ years. They have violated our trust. They have violated our laws. They have violated everything GOOD! I can't even imagine our beloved country under the RULE of these evil-doers. It's too awful to think about. I hope to God that our courts & justice system are up to trying & punishing these CRIMINALS!
