Michael Flynn Calls for suspending Constitution and declaring martial law

Recommended Posts

Any doubts where General Flynn stands on Russian values?

 

A week after receiving his pardon from President Donald Trump, former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn promoted a call for the president to “temporarily suspend the Constitution” and put the country under martial law.

On Tuesday, weeks after the election Trump lost, Flynn shared a press release from the right-wing We the People Convention imploring Trump to implement martial law. The statement drew a connection to what Abraham Lincoln did with his presidential authority during the Civil War.

 

“Then, as now, a President with courage and determination was needed to preserve the Union,” the statement says. “Today, the current threat to our United States by the international and domestic socialist/communist left is much more serious than anything Lincoln or our nation has faced in its history – including the civil war.”

The statement goes on to rail against Antifa, Black Lives Matter, “socialists,” the “corrupt media,” and Big Tech, blaming them all for an “attempted stealing” of the election.

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would prove a stolen election, and much of the evidence collected by Trump’s legal team has been thrown out of court.

The statement culminates in a call for Trump to engage in “a limited form of martial law” before the country supposedly plunges into corruption and a new civil war.

"When the legislators, courts and/or Congress fail to do their duty under the 12th Amendment, you must be ready Mr. President to immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections, for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a national re-vote….You must also act, like Lincoln did, to silence the destructive media’s one-sided propaganda designed and proven to influence the election outcome, and end the unlawful censorship of Big Tech, to restore the confidence of the American People in our electoral process or we cannot continue as a nation. Failure to do so could result in massive violence and destruction on a level not seen since the Civil War. Limited Martial Law is clearly a better option than Civil War!"

Flynn’s tweet comes shortly after Sidney Powell, the former Flynn and Trump campaign lawyer, amplified a call for Trump to “suspend” the election and “set up military tribunals” to launch an investigation into it.

Powell was a member of Trump’s legal team disputing the 2020 election results, but after days of spouting unsubstantiated voter fraud claims and conspiracy theories, she was cut.

Flynn might have been pardoned for past crimes, but it won’t protect him from future sedition and treason charges.  Just saying.

Republican Exposes Call With Ron Johnson: He Called Trump an ‘A**hole’ and Said Biden Won But It’s ‘Political Suicide’ to Admit It 

By Joe DePaoloDec 2nd, 2020, 9:51 am 

A former local official in Wisconsin is outing Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) as knowing President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 election, but refusing to acknowledge it fearing the wrath of President Donald Trump. 

Writing for the conservative Never Trump-site The Bulwark, Mark Becker — a former Brown County (WI) supervisor, and former chairman of the Brown County Republican party — went public with a Nov. 14 phone call between him and the senator. The conversation lasted for a half hour, according to Becker. And in it, Johnson privately conceded that Biden won, and explained why he’s unwilling to say that openly. 

“Senator Johnson knows that Joe Biden won a free and fair election,” Becker wrote. “He is refusing to admit it publicly and stoking conspiracies that undermine our democracy solely because it would be ‘political suicide’ to oppose Trump.” 

Though the Badger State senator has become one of the president’s most staunch defenders in Congress, Becker reveals that Johnson’s true feelings about Trump diverge quite a bit from his public stance.

There is no longer a way for the military to disavow a bad former apple.     I’m not sure how they promoted him so many times without noticing.     Civilians can call for Trump to be blasted into space in a used car as a rocket testing program and demand Flynn commit Seppuku.    https://www.military.com/daily-news/2019/08/09/new-bombshell-legal-opinion-says-military-retirees-cant-be-court-martialed.html

That decision was 2019. It has since been overruled.

Good.      A general acting like Flynn while getting paid >$100,000 a year by the taxpayer is a national embarrassment.     The military has surely had time to examine its promotion process, formulate an explanation and apologize.

Perhaps I had it wrong with Bullshitter Army instead of Air Force.  That thing looks like the Bullshitter FA-35.5 Housefly Fighter Jet. I guess they couldn't get an F-35.

Sounds like a Firing Squad might be a better solution, I would imagine if he pulled this sort of shit in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s the military would have dropped the court martial and quietly had him committed that or a well aimed bullet consistent with assisted suicide .

Firing squad might be on the table - Trump wants to bring that and old sparky back to life again.

Conviction of a crime would have suspended his pension until he got out of prison, but that's about it with military pension payments.

Roger Stone, Who Had His Ass Saved by Barr, Turns on ‘Deep State’ Attorney General

Remember in February when Attorney General Bill Barr trashed his department’s reputation to override the recommended prison term for Roger Stone and push for a much shorter sentence? Because, apparently, Stone has forgotten—and has gone on the attack against the AG. Trumpworld has reacted with fury to Barr’s statement Tuesday that there’s no evidence of voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election, and Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden. Stone, one of Trump’s longest standing allies, is particularly angry, even though Barr did him a huge favor earlier this year. In a video posted to Parler, Stone said he’s not surprised that Barr has “suddenly determined” there is no voter fraud, adding: “Bill Barr’s job is to block for the ‘deep state.’” Stone, who had his prison sentence commuted by Trump in July, also complained of a “two-tiered justice system.”

Just wondering if any of the Faithful care to offer their opinion on General Flynn sharing that press release. 

Seems un-American to suggest such an action.  Sharing it suggests agreement.

Surely the GOP Defense Squad can demonstrate loyalty to country over party, right?

Yeah Vega grille but the rest is actually a Mercury “Pinto”: Bobcat. The hex-like trim around the headlights gives it away (Pinto was round).

I’m so embarrassed that I know that.

Inciting armed rebellion against the gov't is more than sedition, it's treason.

I don't expect any legal troubles to arise out of this, unless somebody busts some caps and then later says specifically that Flynn gave them orders. Maybe Trump should promote him to 5-star General Of The Trump Force, the militias waging war against the US. He could join the list headed A. Sidney Lanier Johnson, CSA (KIA Shiloh) on the list of former American general officers killed on the battlefield.

The contract is right here on this forum and you took the bet by (poorly and incorrectly) attempting to answer the bet.  As I said, I don't need the money and would prefer it go to charity.  At least something good would come out of your constant lies.  But just to be magnanimous and accommodating - I will even give you until Friday at 1200 noon to post evadents of where I said the following:
