The Demise of Michael Flynn

I am always amazed to watch politics in America and the media coverage of disparate faux pas.  Let the left and the democrats get caught lying about anything?  And suddenly they have misspoken. Or used a poor choice of words.  There never was any intent to mislead congress or the America people. 

Yet allow the same facts to evolve around a republican? And he is evil incarnate and must be purged and publicly driven and hunted to the ground.  And the media revels in both pursuits.  They will blindly defend democrat wrong doing, while taking the greatest of exceptions to anything done by a republican.

The bottom line for me is this. Mike Flynn lied to the vice president about his phone call to the Russian ambassador.  That in and of itself is a fireable offense in my book. And should be.  Now?  The democrats can pursue their cries for an investigation of the Trump administration and what they knew and when they knew it. But that makes little difference to me.  The president has done the right thing.  The same thing that should have been done by hos predecessor on a number of occasions in his own staff.

Meanwhile, the president and his staff can pursue who the leaker/s were? But they would be better served to just get rid of them .There is no need to reveal the identity of career leftist moles in the NSA and CIA. Just fire them and be done with it.  And do not expect any help from the media about it period. 

The president needs to call a staff meeting with his staff and cabinet members today and reinterate the ground rules.  Rule #1?  You all have targets on your backs as do I. And they will stop at no means to get to you, to get to me. Honesty and integrity are all we have. We certainly don't have any friends in congress or in the media.  Therefore, the trust of the American people is paramount.  They are the one's who elected me and they are the one's I will ultimately be made to answer to. If you do anything to jeopardize that relationship, You will be gone and fast.
