Michael Flynn’s Decision to Plead the Fifth Tells Us Nothing about His Guilt

Make to mistake about it, Michael Flynn was not Fired by Donald Trump, he chose to resign as National Security Advisor.

 

He is one of a dwindling number of flag officers who put’s “Duty, Honor, and Country before his personal ambitions.

When the unhinged attack dogs from the left began making unsubstantiated allegations his position was rather than slow down the Trump Administration’s quick start to begin turning the country around he would not hamper their efforts.

Make not mistake about it.

Retired General Flynn is under no obligation to help the feds. make their case. 

Now it’s up to them to “Put or Shut up.”

 

 

Our Founding Father’s knew exactly what they were doing when they penned The Fifth Amendment.

It merely proves that he has competent attorneys and that he’s taking their advice.

After a short, merciful weekend break from Trump–Russia scoops, the Associated Press reported this morning that Michael Flynn will decline a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee, invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Already, Twitter is exploding with assertions that this “probably” means Flynn is guilty.

Wouldn’t an innocent patriot in Flynn’s shoes want to tell the world his side of the story?

Wouldn’t he want to clear his name?

It’s tempting to think that only a man with something to hide refuses to testify, especially on a matter of national importance.

But in this case, it would be unfair to Flynn.

We don’t have any idea whether Flynn has violated criminal laws, and his decision to plead the fifth does not in any way indicate that he’s guilty of a crime.

Instead, he’s behaving exactly as a prudent citizen embroiled in a federal investigation should behave. There is a reason beyond our nation’s respect for constitutional rights why a defendant’s decision to assert the Fifth Amendment is inadmissible in criminal trials: It simply isn’t a reliable indicator of guilt. To understand

To understand why a core truth must be understood.

Federal investigations are extremely perilous even for those targets innocent of the crimes being investigated.

In fact, it’s common for investigators to indict or convict the targets of their investigations for misconduct during the investigation, rather than for the alleged crimes that sparked their inquiries, to begin with.

Just ask Martha Stewart. In 2004, a jury found her guilty of obstructing an investigation into her sale of stock in a company called ImClone Systems, Inc.

The judge dismissed the government’s securities-fraud charge before Stewart’s trial, but got her on her testimony for which she was sentenced to jail.

Similarly, in 2007 prosecutors convicted Scooter Libby of lying to the FBI and obstructing an investigation into the leak of CIA employee Valerie Plame’s identity to journalist Robert Novak.

In the so-called “Plame Affair,” no one was ever convicted of a crime for the leak itself.

This Just In: Unnamed Sources Confirm Washington Post’s Unnamed Sources Have Slutty Moms

By Jim Campbell
May 21, 2017

When it comes to purveyors of fake news, WAPO is right up there with the NEW YORK TIMES and M.S.N.B.C.’s Rachael Maddow in bringing up material not worth reading.

I am reluctant to report this because, how many people will believe a scandalous story whose only source is “unnamed sources,” but for the future of this great land, I feel I must go with it.

 

Twenty-nine different unnamed sources, plus one that had a name but forgot it, ten of whom are close to the NY Times management (they live in Manhattan), ten close to Washington Post management, and ten play in the Atlanta Corporate softball league with CNN management shared some scandalous information today.

There will be some who say I am using unnamed sources just to prevent the MSM from continuing its agenda to slow down the Trump team from advancing the policies it promised America.

Or that I am trying to drain the swamp of the established media.
That is ridiculous!
No one would ever try to slow down an agenda using unnamed sources and if that was what I was trying to do no one would believe me…they are unnamed sources for God’s sake.

Constitutional Scholar and Civil Liberties Attorney Alan Dershowitz: No Friend of President Trump Speaks

By Jim Campbell

May 20, 2017

 

By his own admission, Alan Dershowitz is a proud supporter of Hillary Clinton and did not vote for President Donald Trump.

 

 

Regarding the daily hysteria about Donald Trump’s alleged involvement with Russia and the last presidential election he tells us in the video below, there is nothing there and the president broke no laws.

At the time of the murders,  of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman in the”Trial of the century,” Dershowitz was just finishing a book called The Abuse Excuse–and Other Cop-Outs, Sob Stories, and Evasion of Responsibility. 

Concerned that Dershowitz’s thesis may negatively impact Simpson’s case, Shapiro decided to hire Dershowitz, in part to “shut him up.” Rarely present in court, Dershowitz spent most of his time handling motions and other support documents.

His main assignment was to prepare for preparing for an appellate court review in the event of an adverse trial outcome

Rarely present in court, Dershowitz spent most of his time handling motions and other support documents. His main assignment was to prepare for

His main assignment was to prepare for the possible appellate review of an adverse trial outcome.

 

In his book, The Best Defense, Dershowitz gave a view of the approach he would later take in the Simpson case. 

“Once I decide to take a case,” Dershowitz wrote, “I have only one agenda: I want to win. 

I will try, by every fair and legal means, to get my client off–without regard to the consequences.”  

In his memoir The Best Defense, Dershowitz noted that “almost all of my clients have been guilty.”

Professor Alan M. Dershowitz is Brooklyn native who has been called one of the United States Constitution’s   “most distinguished defenders of individual rights,” “the best-known criminal lawyer in the world,” “the top lawyer of last resort,” “America’s most public Jewish defender” and “Israel’s single most visible defender. the Jewish state’s lead attorney in the court of public opinion.”

 

He is the Felix Frankfurter Professor  Emeritus of Law at Harvard Law School. Dershowitz, a graduate of Brooklyn College and Yale Law School, joined the Harvard Law School faculty at age 25 after clerking for Judge David Bazelon and Justice Arthur Goldberg.

 

 

He has also published more than 1000 articles in magazines, newspapers, journals and blogs such as The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Harvard Law Review, the Yale Law Journal, Huffington Post, Newsmax, Jerusalem Post and Ha’aretz.

Professor Dershowitz is the author of 30 fiction and non-fiction works with a worldwide audience, including The New York Times #1 bestseller Chutzpah and five other national bestsellers.

His autobiography, Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law, was published in October 2013 by Crown, a division of Random House. (Source)

Trump Signs $ 150-350 Billion Arms Deal With Saudis

It would seem that President Trump could not make such a deal unilaterally without the approval and funding from the House of Representatives and then on to the U.S. Senate.

 

Are the Saudi’s seriously that important of an ally with the current battles the U.S. Military is fighting in The Middle East and Africa?

 

This certainly smells of making sure the “Military industrial complex,” is being fed well by the U.S. Taxpayers.

One hundred billion dollars up to $350 billion could go a long way toward rebuilding America’s infrastructure.

Our highways dams and bridges are in horrible shape and these monies could greatly help with needed improvements.

Image: Trump to Announce $350 Billion Arms Deal With Saudis

President Donald Trump will reportedly announce an arms deal with Saudi Arabia that could be worth as much as $350 billion during his upcoming trip overseas.

According to The Independent, former President Barack Obama sold $60 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia.

The latest deal involving Trump seems to have a larger goal in mind: the creation of an alliance between Gulf states that would be similar to NATO.

 

 

Reuters reported last Friday that the deal could be worth $100 billion in American arms and maintenance.

The $350 billion figure would be the value of the deal over 10 years.

Wednesday that Trump will present his plans to Saudi Arabian officials in Riyadh about what the White House is calling an “Arab NATO.”

A senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have been negotiating the idea since before Trump took office.

“We all have the same enemy and we all want the same thing,” a senior White House official told the Post. “What this trip hopefully will do is just change the environment.”

This is Horrible: The Increasingly Unhinged Left Will Have to Pay for Their Own Anti-Psychotic Medications

By Jim Campbell

May 20, 2017

 

O.K. Well not really, just another example of uber-lefty Elizabeth Warren using scare tactic and lies in an attempt to stir up American voters, dead voters, and illegal aliens to make sure they stick with the rest of the sheep and not stray too far from her fake reservation.

 

If the democrats are seriously considering this nut case to be their candidate to run against President Trump, well that’s a dog that just won’t hunt.

 

This serves as more evidence of the woefully thin bench the progressives have not just in the upcoming presidential election but across the board.

Does the United States of America need another pathological liar in the White House?   “Me No See how.

Republicans cruelly ignored a rapidly spreading epidemic as they crafted the partial repeal of Obamacare that passed in the House.

They failed to include any provision in AHCA that provides mental health benefits for balmy liberals whose thin tether to sanity has been severed by the success of the GOP and Donald Trump.
His victory in November and his successful collaboration with Senate Republicans on the confirmation of Neal Gorsuch for SCOTUS have already turned them into gibbering Tards.

Their conditions have now been exacerbated by the passage of AHCA, yet it provides no subsidy to pay for their Seroquel.

And they are in dire need of anti-psychotic medication.
Elizabeth Warren, whose multiple-personality disorder occasionally manifests itself in the form of a verbose U.S. Senator and other times as a remarkably pale indigenous princess loosed the following war-whoop on Twitter:

“#AHCA will devastate Americans’ healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die.”

Settle Down Lizzy and take a pill….

On the latter point, she may be onto something though. Some of the outbursts our progressive friends are foolhardy enough to put in print are causing so much mirth on the tweeter that increasing amounts of leftist may end up in the Emergency Rooms.

The Democrats and their partners in the media and the entertainment industry have become a case study in mass hysteria.

Perhaps AHCA should have included some provision for pre-existing hysteria.
These people need sedatives and a long spell at a country retreat before they hurt themselves.
They have already done considerable harm to us.

One step forward three steps back: Dancing on the edge of a tall building

By Jim Campbell

May 20, 2016

 

“I have heard about ‘Witch-Hunts’ all of my life.

When I was a kid, Senator Joe McCarthy (R-Wis.) and the House Un-American Activities Committee were said by the left-wingers to be on a ‘witch-hunt’ for Communists in the government.

That’s what the left alleged against Richard Nixon when he was a young Congressman from Yorba Linda, too.

The allegation was a bit misleading, though, because as far as we know, there are no such things as witches.

There’s Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi and they are not nice, but no one could prove that there are even such things as witches, let alone that there are witches in high office.”

 

“Now, we have a new kind of witch-hunt going on against the administration and the person of Donald Trump.”

The allegation is that there was a control of the 2016 Presidential Campaign exercised by the Russians and that the control ran by a collusion between Russia and Donald Trump.

And now, with the appointment of Mr. Mueller as a Special Prosecutor, in this case, we see a REAL witch-hunt hit high gear.

This one is a REAL witch-hunt because there is no evidence at all of any kind whatsoever that there was any collusion with the Russians by Trump.

There is no evidence that the Russians controlled Trump or anyone in his campaign.

“It’s all about a fantasy.

 So now, we have a hunt for something that is non-existent, as far as anyone knows.” ~Ben Stein

 


So here we are: Democrats are latching onto the smoke Trump created because he couldn’t stand that people simply wouldn’t recognize there was no fire.

 

But we should always return to the simple, bottom-line fact: there’s still no fire.

But I remind you of what Barack Obama’s Campaign Manager and Democrat Strategist once said:

W.T.F. Over?

Bullet Head Elijah Cummings, (commie Md.) it trying to take the reins away from Chuckie Schumer in bringing the Trump administration down.

 

Other than pure hatred, they have nothing on President Trump to impeach him as he has done nothing wrong.

Their contention is that President Trump shared classified information with the Russians.

 

President Trump is legally authorized to change the classification of any intelligence by upgrading or downgrading it. (Source)

 It’s gone way past partisan politics and loyal opposition to full-blown hysteria and personal destruction.

 

 The fool just said we “Got to keep politics out of this as much as possible?”
 
With an investigation ongoing, the democrats don’t want to wait for the facts, they just want the media to continue with their ‘unnamed sources’ to spread the Sh*t and remain useful comrades in their pre-planned destruction of all things Trump.
 
Speaking to reporters Friday at Capitol Hill, Congressman Elijah Bullet Head Cummings (Md.) gave his fellow travelers in the media a pep talk and marching orders, telling them that “this is your moment” and “we cannot afford to lose” this fight for America (against President Trump and his supporters).
 


Cummings spoke following a briefing from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on the firing of FBI Director James Comey and, complained about the firing having “turned into a mess” and applauded Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel on the Russia investigation.

“This morning I said on CNN, I said, this thing has turned into a mess.

I mean, we’ve got to straighten this out and I think, I think we need to pour politics out of this as much as possible…..and by the way,

Thank you all.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE REPORTER: “Thank you, sir.”

                                                                                                                                                                Talk about beating  a dead horse, WTF did this fool just say below?

I really appreciate you all.  

If there is any moment that the press in our country’s history has a major role, it is this moment.

This is your moment.

You have got to put it out there so people can understand what is going on. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, this is about the fight for the soul of our democracy.

We cannot afford to lose this one.”

 

Friend of Bullett Head

That’s kinda funny hearing, of all people, Bullet Head ‘sayin’ we need to take politics out of this as much as possible, even more hearing, “it’s about the fight for the soul of our democracy,” the same one him and his buddies have been mugging for the last 60 years. 

Simply said, Bullet Head was telling the media propagandists, ‘Go out and find something!

We ‘gotz NUFFIN’ thang ‘on Trump!

 We wanted Her Heinous to ‘be resident of the white ouhouse‘, and so did you fools!

 If we don’t find something real on this guy, we’ll be reduced to sucking on our pacifiers and holding our breath ’til we turn blue!’
