Trump’s National Security Ace In The Hole: Gen. Michael Flynn – OpEd


The latest scuttlebutt within the Washington Beltway and President-elect Donald Trump’s New York City headquarters is that Trump has offered the right person the key position of National Security Adviser, who reports directly to the President and oversees the numerous agencies that protect the United States and the American people. He will be a welcome change from the dishonest people currently advising President Barack Obama, namely Valeria Jarrett, Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes.

In the midst of the mainstream news media — a/k/a to Donald Trump “the dishonest media” — trying to find out who will serve in a Trump administration, a number of former military, intelligence and law enforcement members believe that former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn will make an excellent Director of National Intelligence or, even better, the White House National Security Adviser, who would be immune to tricky Democrats seeking oversight.

Gen. Flynn could arguably surpasses any previous men or women who have held those offices and would be a departure from the usual political trend so visible in today’s Washington, D.C. For example, as President Trump’s national security advisor, the decorated general who served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has enormous knowledge and experience in providing intelligence operations and operatives with non-politicized actionable intelligence necessary on the fields of battle.

Currently, the news media are covering up a situation that occurred in the Obama White House involving the national security advisor and her assistant. According to a Conservative Base news story this year: In the aftermath of being subjected to repeated lying by President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice — especially her now infamous Benghazi fairy tales — and deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes’ punkish statements in the New York Times Magazine about deceitfully getting an Iranian nuclear deal “victory,” at least one congressional committee wants to see change.

Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, on Wednesday unveiled a proposal to totally revamp the National Security Council (NSC). During the Obama administration, the NSC has been repeatedly criticized for distorting the work and accomplishments of America’s national security institutions. Many security and intelligence experts claim the NSC has become a place to dump political hacks who could never get past a Senate confirmation hearing.

“Ben Rhodes is nothing but a young wiseguy who is a political ‘spin doctor’ and more of communications director than a national security expert. He’s never been in the military, never served in the intelligence community but is a graduate school brainchild who knows politics,” said former U.S. Marine intelligence operation and police commander Sid Franes.

Franes said: “Rhodes recently bragged about how he and the Obama team misled journalists regarding the U.S. negotiations for the Iran nuclear agreement. He actually admitted conning young, inexperienced reporters to sway public opinion to seal the deal. The lies were told in concert with Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry.”

“Not only did Obama and his minions lie and connive in order to achieve what amounted to a pyrrhic political victory, but they are boasting about taking advantage of the mentally-challenged news media,” Franes quipped in the Conservative Base news story on May 13, 2016.

However, with a real national security adviser — a three-star general, an intelligence agency director, and a man experienced in dealing with political hacks — the Commander in Chief will get real intelligence, rather than the “doctored” reports that President Barack Obama and his minions demanded.

For example, in September 2016 there were 50 U.S. intelligence officers who blew the whistle on President Barack Obama’s playing loose and fancy free with his reports on his “war on extremism” that should have not only outraged reporters and news editors, but opened the door to the appointment of a special prosecutor. But according to Conservative Base: “Unfortunately, since it was a Democratic president with a leftist political philosophy and a “blame America first” mentality, the nation’s purveyors of information ignored the story or relegated the reports to the back pages of newspapers. And to this day, the “Magnificent 50” intelligence analysts have not seen their loyalty to the U.S. Constitution and to the American people even acknowledged.

“It is time to have a real national security adviser in the White House and a genuine Director of National Intelligence and my money is on Gen. Flynn. Hands down with no doubts, he is what’s needed in Trumps program to drain the swamp,” said former police captain Karley Peterson-Gentelli. “Flynn will reverse the damage done to U.S. intelligence gathering and analysis by the Democrats,” she added.
