So General Flynn has resigned. Why? Is it a good thing he’s gone? Here is Ace of Spades:

It’s suggested that the main reason for the resignation was that he had lied to Vice President Pence about the substance of his discussion with the Russian official. There’s also chatter that Yates (the Obama AG holdover who refused to defend Trump’s travel EO), Clapper, and Brennan had previously tried to warn Trump that Flynn was “blackmailable” by the Russians.

And oh boy, do those three subverters of democratically-elected government officials have a huge supply of credibility in my book.

Incidentally, I hear the loss of Flynn is no great loss anyway. Natsec people I know complain about him a lot. Yes, he famously broke with Obama. But there was a reason Obama appointed him in the first place — he shares most of the assumptions of other liberal defense wonks, and (I hear, can’t confirm) he or his people have worked to keep out more conservative people out of key natsec positions.

Like, there’s a whole coterie of people who think saying “The Muslim Brotherhood is potentially dangerous and should not be placed into key natsec roles” is some kind of extremist rhetoric that can’t be tolerated.

Actually, I hear that a lot of Trump’s picks are kinda liberal-ish on foreign policy so there’s a lot of resistance to letting the Barbarian Infidels into the city from a lot of different people, but I gotta think Flynn was either one of the gatekeepers or could have chosen to overrule other people keeping out clear-eyed conservatives, but chose not to.

To be honest, I’ve wanted him out of there since the transition.

Sundance writes at The Last Refuge,

The professional political class have inflicted a major wound and successfully removed part of the President Trump administration. Now there’s blood in the water; and when there’s blood in the water in DC – the odds of surviving the frenzy diminish bigly.

With the intoxicating blood lust permeating the air the circling Majority Swamp Media (MSM) prepare to launch their attack on the White House Press Secretary. Can the young and vulnerable Sean Spicer enter the gauntlet and survive the onslaught. Tune in at 1:00pm EST and see. Millions will be watching:
