Michael Flynn knows firsthand what it’s like when a small group of highly motivated people gets together behind the scenes to “affect change.” He was “changed” right out of the White House.

Lately, he’s applied that wisdom to the country at large and doesn’t like what he sees. Now that he can glimpse the light at the end of his own personal tunnel, he’s raising alarm bells to all Americans who want to continue their way of life. This is no time to be complacent, he says in an op-ed for the WESTERN JOURNAL. If we stand by, it’s not too much to say that America as we know it will be destroyed.

Reading this piece, one can’t help but think that its author would have made such a fine national security adviser. (Who did we end up with after the FBI interfered? John Bolton.) It’s clear that he would be encouraging President Trump right now to set up a tough line of defense. This is a man who loves America while recognizing its flaws --- having almost been done in by them himself --- and who knows how vulnerable our democracy is.

"I believe the attacks being presented to us today are part of a well-orchestrated and well-funded effort that uses racism as its sword to aggravate our battlefield dispositions,” Flynn says. “The weapon is used to leverage and legitimize violence and crime, not to seek or serve the truth.”

Its end goal: the creation of a socialist society. “The very heart and soul of America is at stake,” he warns.

This is a wake-up call for us to face the reality of 2020. Obviously, Flynn sees America right now as a battlefield, and battlefields are something he knows quite a bit about. He understands that a small, highly motivated, and organized group can quickly gain control over a much larger group that isn’t fighting back hard enough. As he puts it, “If we’re not careful, 2 percent of the passionate will control 98 percent of the indifferent 100 percent of the time.”

"Treason and treachery are rampant,” he says, no doubt drawing on personal experience with our own government, “and our rule of law and those law enforcement professionals who uphold our laws are under the gun more than at any time in our nation’s history. This passionate 2 % appears to be winning.” He’s concerned that Americans don’t realize how severe the consequences will be if the “passionate” do win.

Voting is one very important part of this (it’s become a cliché, but in this case, it’s true that no election in our lifetimes has mattered more than this upcoming one.) But Flynn says we have to do more. We have to exhibit the “audacity and resolve” that the small, well-organized, fired-up groups do.

Speaking like a battlefield commander, he makes an intriguing point: that our enemies have vulnerabilities we don’t know about. “I also sense that only a slight push on our part is all that is required to defeat these forces.” Mostly he looks to our law enforcement professionals to hold the line against “the corrupt and the criminal.” They need our support most of all, the support of “our entire being.”

They are NOT the enemy, he says. “They bring light to the darkness of night through their bravery and determination to do their jobs without fanfare and with tremendous sacrifice.” (One might say this is the ultimate example of the enemy of our enemy being our friend.)

He also warns not to be taken in by fake news. Trust your instincts and your common sense to help you see the difference between right and wrong. “Those with courage will always choose the harder right over the easier wrong,” he says. He applies this not only to dealings with our enemies but with our own government, our own “so-called leaders,” the people WE put in charge and can remove as well. Politicians who have been in office too long have “discarded us like old trash,” he says.

Flynn communicates the same strong faith, commitment, and optimism that surely kept the soldiers under his command at their peak in the field. Our goal, he says, “is to remain an unwavering constitutional republic based on a set of Judeo-Christian values and principles.”

"In war, as in life, most failure comes from inaction.”

Reading this, I am angered anew that Michael Flynn was kept from being Trump’s national security adviser, and not just because of the criminal way he was treated. We were shortchanged; we deserved someone of this caliber working for us. Personally, I would love to see him put right back into that job. In the meantime, he has made his position clear, and the President knows, at least in general, the advice he would be giving.

Incidentally, Flynn lawyer Sidney Powell made some news in an interview on “The Vickie McKenna Show” on Madison, Wisconsin, radio by saying one reason Flynn was taken down was that he was prepared to “audit” the U.S. intelligence community. The big fish there: former CIA Director John Brennan.

Now, if you’ve been reading the HUCKABEE newsletter, you already knew that Flynn was planning to do that audit. As Lee Smith reported in his book, THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT, Flynn wanted to streamline the Pentagon and the intel community, and that would have involved financial audits and much-needed downsizing. They didn’t like it at all. One area of particular interest was the Office of Net Assessment (ONA), which appeared to be hiring contract people to produce reports of dubious value. Interestingly, one of those contractors was...(yes) Stefan Halper, the very person who would go on to ambush Trump campaign associates as a confidential human source on foreign soil and record their conversations. On the books, he was being paid to “write reports.”

Anyway, there were lots of reasons why Obama’s intel community --- and Obama himself --- did not want Michael Flynn around. Ironically, he thought the CIA was “too political,” and it was the truth of this that ended up taking him down. The idea of his being national security adviser and almost certainly discovering what they'd been up to in the summer of 2016 had to be just too much. That’s why McCabe, Strzok, and the rest HAD to make sure the case against him stayed open and why they had to see him gone baby gone. Look around today and you can see that it was our country’s loss.

    Many of us want to be involved in restoring our gov't. What's happening is both heartbreaking and infuriating. We need to organize and so we need leadership. This is out of my comfort zone, but that's too bad. Biden's communist agenda is messing with the three greatest loves of my life. God, family, and country. Please share any suggestions on how I can help. God Bless you and keep you General Flynn.

    I love your well articulated thoughts, especially the Flynn disaster. Thank God for President Trump's steadfast service to right wrong. I hope he continues to be a thorn in the Left's side!
    General Flynn would make a great V.P. and Sarah a great Governor.

    I believe our Country is being inundated with left leaning politicians, any news channels and reporters who are also left. Check your new channels run by conservatives and stay away from main line channels. You will never get the truth there. Blm is a marxist organization that gets most of its money out of the mainstream in the United States. We , the silent majority need to open our eyes to who is assaulting our Country and why. Do we want the left to drop us to venezuela and how it finished. Our left congress, news and media apparently want this. Look at the new green energy farce. Do you want to walk wherever you go, sit in a hot house or a cold house, cook on certain days, give your cars and trucks up, lose your jobs and sit home twiddling your thumbs? Lets start fighting back. Vote against anything the left puts out , especially voting by mail. We are watching on the side lines while our country is torn apart. GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY AND OUR PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP. HE IS STANDING BETWEEN US AND A SOCIALIST , MARXIST FUTURE!!!!!!!!

    I want all who were involved in the corrupt Obama administration, to be prosecuted to the extent of the law. I am so tired of Obama, Biden and their corrupt cronies get away with the things they have done! They need to be stopped, and do jail time.

    Michael Flynn should be FULLY reinstated in any and ALL capacities he had before this EVIL travesty was forced on him. Everyone involved should be tried and punished according to their involvement. We Patriots have been hoping for a reincarnation of JFK Jr., but I’m thinking that General Flynn is really the HERO we’ve been waiting on!!!

  • Karen Jo

    I want to do something, but I don’t know what to do. How do peaceful, law-abiding citizens organize to fight back? Congress certainly isn’t doing anything. The president (I support wholeheartedly) seems tired and doesn’t seem to be addressing The problem at hand over the past weeks that is causing our fear. What can we do? I’m ready to take my country back!

    First let me applaud General Flynn for not only his service to a grateful nation, but also for his perseverance through his oppression by corrupt officers within the past incompetent administration by a community organizer supported by corrupt v.p. and sec. of state (capital letters intentionally omitted).

    If ever there was a time to hold politicians, f.b.i. and justices accountable (especially Sullivan)....that time is now. Treason comes to my mind in what they did to you General Flynn.

    Well Flynn should certainly know about treason and treachery. Why did he lie to the FBI. What was he hiding. Why did he have so many contacts with Russian operatives. Lock him up

    We believe this. We have always prayed for Michael Flynn, for his attorney, his family. So sad that he's been through this. Thank you Gov. Huckabee, for bringing us news that we can trust. Love your program.

    If you have contact with President Trump please let him know his supporters are here and increasing in number. We may not be able to voice how we feel as social media tries to stop us but we are here. I am concerned he looks tired so maybe go to Mar A Lago for some golf after the 4th.
    Turn it off for a few hours, don't tweet and let them wonder what your doing. That should drive that old witch Pelosi crazy. We support you, we pray for you and we are smart enough to know how hard they are trying to keep you from winning. Thank you sir and thank God Mike Flynn is finally okay.

    I am 100% "for Michael Flynn" as he is a Christian man of valor, honor, intelligence and deep strength, exactly what our blessed nation needs as a leader. What he was put through these past several years, yet survived to clear his name, reveals his strong, deep character, which is difficult to find in today's world. I wish him the very best and pray he feels strong enough to return to public service. I totally understand and am in agreement with this above article. It is past time we took back our blessed God-given country that has been defended for years by all the brave men/women who sacrificed their lives to give us all the freedoms we enjoy today. IF these recent passion groups do not care for our dear USA, then they should relocate to China, N. Korea, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan where they can live in camps and be much happier!!!! We, the other 98% must no longer be complacent and condone the criminal destruction of our cities/states. IF Dems cannot manage their cities/states, they should resign, as they are a disgrace to our Constitution and total governmental failures to mention the least!! Their hearts are no longer caring for the people they manage, only self-seeking and evil. God help us all ...I pray every night for this country and all its leaders and our president. And...we can no longer allow our universities to condone instruction of radical left, socialistic Marxism. That has NO place in a free country, only in communist countries, as the two are NOT compatible. WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. UNITED WE STAND; DIVIDED WE FALL. Let us take back our God-given America once again!

    Thank you for your service to America. Thank you for handing in and for warning us. Be the leader in this fight. We need you to. No one is standing strong. President Trump is tiring and almost looks as if giving up. I hope not. Help him and stand with him. Pull together more people, Michelle Bachmann comes to mind. Thank you. I will back you. I plan to vote for President Trump. There are a whole lot of us out here who are the silent majority!!! Little do the evil people know.

    Absolutely agree... Never have i seen so much BS in the folks that WE ARE ELECTING to run the Country.. that have no business doing so! Its time to form A NEW American Party where the good common people far outweigh (AND HAVE A MUCH BIGGER LEGAL VOICE) the stale, worthless "old Guard" politicians in D.C....

    Just this morning I commented to a co-worker that it seems to me that all the social unrest, economic suppression and violence going on is funneling us right into socialism. I deeply appreciate Michael Flynn's comments and would ask, What can a deeply concerned American do to fight back? Are there organized groups in existence that one can join and get involved to help turn things around? I feel so helpless.

    Governor, If we do not resist this effort to destroy our nation, we will end up a bankrupt, third world nation incapable of defending itself, against any enemy, foreign or domestic. This quote has been used in many speeches and has been attributed originally to several different authors, but it must be spoken again today: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Call you congressman and senators and demand that the rule of law ben enforced in our nation's cities. Criminal murderers, arsonists, and vandals should be arrested and imprisoned. I am involved in prison ministry. Give us a shot at talking sense to them and declaring to them the error of their ways behind razor wire. God bless America.
