Mike Flynn: The Deep State Establishment Empire fights Back

Mal­one: [stop­ping at a post office] Well, here we are.
Ness: What are we doing here?
Mal­one: Liquor raid.
Ness: [look­ing at the police sta­tion across the street] Here?
Mal­one: Mr. Ness, every­body knows where the booze is. The prob­lem isn’t find­ing it, the prob­lem is who wants to cross Capone.
[…Enters Post office and goes to a closed door in the back]

The Untouch­ables 1987

There are two scenes in the 1987 movie The Untouch­ables that per­fectly illus­trates the sit­u­a­tion in Wash­ing­ton today

The first is when Offi­cer Mal­one (Sean Con­nery) leads Elliot Ness (Kevin Cost­ner) into the post office where Capone’s booze is being dis­trib­uted from and makes it clear that every­thing comes down to if he’s will­ing to go through that door or not.

the key exchange comes at 5:19 in this clip:

Mal­one: [With his hand on the door] If you walk through this door now, you’re walk­ing into a world of trou­ble. And there’s no turn­ing back. You under­stand?
Ness: Yes I do. [Pumps his shot­gun]
Mal­one: Good.

That is pretty much what chal­leng­ing the deep state means. If you are will­ing to keep your mouth shut and go though the motions, like say a Jeb Bush might have done if elected, you might be allowed to make minor tweaks to the sys­tem as long as the sys­tem that allows the folks to feed at the trough can continue.

But the moment you decide to shake things up The deep state fights back as illus­trated by this scene where Agent Wal­lace is murdered.

And your friends tell you to take a few days off

Chief Mike Dorset: It’s always a crime when a young guy goes down in the line Jimmy, I hate to see it hap­pen to some­one I know. Some­times it’s bet­ter not to get involved. Jimmy take a few days off, get out of the city, you know what I mean.

That beyond every­thing else is what the res­ig­na­tion of Gen­eral Mike Flynn is about as reported by the free bea­con first quot­ing Eli Lake:

Michael Flynn was one of the Obama administration’s fiercest crit­ics after he was forced out of the Defense Intel­li­gence Agency,”

And then in their own piece proper

A third source who serves as a con­gres­sional adviser and was involved in the 2015 fight over the Iran deal told the Free Bea­con that the Obama admin­is­tra­tion feared that Flynn would expose the secret agree­ments with Iran.

The Obama admin­is­tra­tion knew that Flynn was going to release the secret doc­u­ments around the Iran deal, which would blow up their myth that it was a good deal that rolled back Iran,” the source said. “So in Decem­ber the Obama NSC started going to work with their favorite reporters, selec­tively leak­ing dam­ag­ing and incom­plete infor­ma­tion about Flynn.”

After Trump was inau­gu­rated some of those peo­ple stayed in and some began work­ing from the out­side, and they coop­er­ated to keep under­min­ing Trump,” the source said, detail­ing a series of leaks from within the White House in the past weeks tar­get­ing Flynn. “Last night’s res­ig­na­tion was their first major win, but unless the Trump peo­ple get seri­ous about clean­ing house, it won’t be the last.”

Flynn was ready to help drain the swamp but when you start drain­ing a swap the ani­mals who live there tend to bite.

This is what Bill Kris­tol is say­ing in this dis­grace­ful tweet.

There is a good liv­ing for every­one involved if you just keep your head down and get along to go along. Take a few days off Don­nie Boy, get your­self out of town for a bit.

Now there may be more than meets the eye here but the fate of Gen­eral Flynn is a reminder that the D’Sousa Rule is fully in place as I said at the time:

Did D’Sousa really think that an admin­is­tra­tion will­ing to use the IRS against their polit­i­cal ene­mies who are act­ing legally would not use the Jus­tice Depart­ment go after a polit­i­cal foe who made the sin­gle most pop­u­lar film against Barack Obama in 2012 in the case of an actual vio­la­tion of law?

Every mem­ber of the Trump admin­is­tra­tion should take this to heart, the left is all in against you as is the media but most impor­tant of all a good chunk of the GOP estab­lish­ment and their gov­ern­ment allies would still like you to crash and burn and will have no qualms at all about mak­ing com­mon cause with the left to do so.

The Trump admin­is­tra­tion is fight­ing the good fight, but they need to watch their back because both foes and sup­posed friends are look­ing to stick a knife into it.

After all you didn’t’ think they’d just roll over and die did you?

Malone: [stopping at a post office] Well, here we are.
Ness: What are we doing here?
Malone: Liquor raid.
Ness: [looking at the police station across the street] Here?
Malone: Mr. Ness, everybody knows where the booze is. The problem isn’t finding it, the problem is who wants to cross Capone.

The Untouchables 1987

There are two scenes in the 1987 movie The Untouchables that perfectly illustrates the situation in Washington today

The first is when Officer Malone (Sean Connery) leads Elliot Ness (Kevin Costner) into the post office where Capone’s booze is being distributed from and makes it clear that everything comes down to if he’s willing to go through that door or not.

the key exchange comes at 5:19 in this clip:

Malone: [With his hand on the door] If you walk through this door now, you’re walking into a world of trouble. And there’s no turning back. You understand?
Ness: Yes I do. [Pumps his shotgun]
Malone: Good.

That is pretty much what challenging the deep state means. If you are willing to keep your mouth shut and go though the motions, like say a Jeb Bush might have done if elected, you might be allowed to make minor tweaks to the system as long as the system that allows the folks to feed at the trough can continue.

But the moment you decide to shake things up The deep state fights back as illustrated by this scene where Agent Wallace is murdered.

And your friends tell you to take a few days off

Chief Mike Dorset: It’s always a crime when a young guy goes down in the line Jimmy, I hate to see it happen to someone I know. Sometimes it’s better not to get involved. Jimmy take a few days off, get out of the city, you know what I mean.

That beyond everything else is what the resignation of General Mike Flynn is about as reported by the free beacon first quoting Eli Lake:

“Michael Flynn was one of the Obama administration’s fiercest critics after he was forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency,”

And then in their own piece proper

A third source who serves as a congressional adviser and was involved in the 2015 fight over the Iran deal told the Free Beacon that the Obama administration feared that Flynn would expose the secret agreements with Iran.

“The Obama administration knew that Flynn was going to release the secret documents around the Iran deal, which would blow up their myth that it was a good deal that rolled back Iran,” the source said. “So in December the Obama NSC started going to work with their favorite reporters, selectively leaking damaging and incomplete information about Flynn.”

“After Trump was inaugurated some of those people stayed in and some began working from the outside, and they cooperated to keep undermining Trump,” the source said, detailing a series of leaks from within the White House in the past weeks targeting Flynn. “Last night’s resignation was their first major win, but unless the Trump people get serious about cleaning house, it won’t be the last.”

Flynn was ready to help drain the swamp but when you start draining a swap the animals who live there tend to bite.

This is what Bill Kristol is saying in this disgraceful tweet.

There is a good living for everyone involved if you just keep your head down and get along to go along. Take a few days off Donnie Boy, get yourself out of town for a bit.

Now there may be more than meets the eye here but the fate of General Flynn is a reminder that the D’Sousa Rule is fully in place as I said at the time:

Did D’Sousa really think that an administration willing to use the IRS against their political enemies who are acting legally would not use the Justice Department go after a political foe who made the single most popular film against Barack Obama in 2012 in the case of an actual violation of law?

Every member of the Trump administration should take this to heart, the left is all in against you as is the media but most important of all a good chunk of the GOP establishment and their government allies would still like you to crash and burn and will have no qualms at all about making common cause with the left to do so.

The Trump administration is fighting the good fight, but they need to watch their back because both foes and supposed friends are looking to stick a knife into it.

After all you didn’t’ think they’d just roll over and die did you?
