AT LAST, BREAKTHROUGH COMES IN FLYNN CASE
Wouldn’t you know, when the evidence finally came out showing Michael Flynn was set up by the FBI, it would be at a time when the news was “all coronavirus, all the time.” My, how conveeeenient this is for media “news” outlets who want to ignore it until it goes away.
But it won’t go away. And there will be more. What has come out so far is less than half of what we’re going to see later on in the week. I’m guessing we’ll have another Friday document dump, but it might come today.
We’ve been covering the latest news on Flynn for the past several days, so you can refer to those commentaries if you need a refresher on how the records came to be delivered to attorney Sidney Powell, who has been trying to get them for many months. This is exculpatory (“Brady”) material that is automatically supposed to be turned over to the defense. She finally got much of what she’s been asking for –- she’s anticipating 11 more pages that are “damning” –- in the form of texts, emails and handwritten notes. It’s one of the handwritten notes that has shown beyond doubt that Flynn was personally targeted, just to get rid of him.
The barely legible scrawl reads: “What’s our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute or get him fired?”
Let that sink in. “Get him to lie”? “...get him fired”? Since when does the FBI concern itself with getting someone fired?

I am not a fan of schadenfreude, the idea of taking pleasure in the misfortune of others. So I will not make fun of the people in this next story, and I hope and pray that they are safe and are able to return home very soon. But I hope when they do return, it will be with some hard-won wisdom, and that those of like minds may draw a lesson without having to endure their suffering.
It all started when a group of 40 “hippies” as this story describes them (that is, idealistic leftists/greenies, like a leader of Extinction Rebellion climate change protests) defied coronavirus travel warnings to go to Panama for “The Tribal Gathering Festival.” It was described as a collectivist utopia, a “paradise on Earth” where everything was shared and urban Westerners “could learn from indigenous communities about how to rebalance society and live in symbiosis with the Earth.”
But reality, in the form of the coronavirus, intruded on this red-and-green paradise. It was supposed to end on March 15th, but Panama placed them in quarantine and banned travel. So they’ve been stuck camping on the beach for 80 days. All that “imagine no possessions” stuff quickly went by the wayside as they started fighting over food, enduring serious sewage issues and being threatened by the organizer not to damage his property. They came expecting an eco-socialist paradise, but now they’re complaining that they’re “stuck in Hell.” One said, “At first it was like a paradise, but when you are locked in, it’s not paradise anymore.”
Sorry to break this to them, but that could be said of any so-called socialist “paradise” in history. In fact, they could have learned the same lesson by just flying straight to Venezuela instead of Panama.
As I said, I hope they are able to come home safely and soon, but also sadder but wiser, knowing that all socialist promises of “paradise” end the same way: with people fighting over food and “living in symbiosis with the Earth” by using leaves for toilet paper.
CALIFORNIA'S NANNY GOVERNMENT
Even in California, people can only take so much Big Nanny Government. Over the weekend, an estimated 40,000 shut-ins fled their houses and went to Newport Beach. State officials are threatening to close the beach on weekends because, as Gov. Gavin Newsom put it, California “can only keep flattening the curve if we stay home and practice physical distancing.”
Two points about that: first, “flattening the curve” was something that was supposed to be done to insure the cases didn’t peak early before there were medical resources in place to handle it. It worked. But it was supposed to be a two-to-three-week process. You can’t keep a virus from spreading indefinitely by ordering everybody to hide behind locked doors indefinitely.
Second, take a look at the photo of that “crowded” beach. The people look to me as if they are keeping a safe distance from each other. In fact, getting some fresh air and UV rays in the warm sunshine might be a lot healthier for fighting the virus than staying inside and breathing recirculated air.
I realize it goes against every instinct of “progressive” California politicians to trust the people to have enough sense to act responsibly on their own. But if they don’t lighten up and start letting people get back to doing their jobs and living their lives, those Californians may soon be sunning themselves on a Texas beach, like so many other former Californians already are.
WAFFLE HOUSE UPDATE
Tuesday, President Trump met with major industry executives from companies such as Wynn Resorts, Hilton, Toyota North America and Waffle House to discuss getting the economy back up and running again. You can watch the live stream of it here.
I was glad to see that Waffle House was represented at the meeting. The one sure sign that we’ll survive any crisis is that Waffle House is open.
Good news on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus front: there are promising results from a new drug to treat it called remdesivir. When asked about it Wednesday, President Trump deferred to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who called the early test results “quite good news.”
Trump must’ve known that if he’d said it was quite good news, the media would be trying to convince us that remdesivir is deadly poison.
Also, Oxford scientists are testing a potential coronavirus vaccine on humans. If it’s effective, it could be widely available by September, to head off the feared “second wave” of the disease that could hit in the fall.
Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (KJV)
