Responding to TK from the last thread.

Saul Montes Bradley is a friend of LTG Flynn. The ABC News article about him having to sell his house to pay legal fees is Fake News.

Narciso I don’t get your point. Flynn sold his house for the same reason millions of other people do: he was moving somewhere else, in this case back home to Rhode Island.

Must be something about red-haired comediennes.

Regardless of why Flynn sold his home, presumably he's had legal expenses.

I am totally behind the curve here. Answering JMHanes from the thread before last.

Have you been to Japan?

Yes. I lived in Japan for two years as a Mormon missionary in the mid-1980s. Since then, I have been back a couple of times for business, but those were really oddball jobs. Haven't been back in about twenty years, though.

Do you have a cultural interest in Japan, or primarily business?

Mostly cultural. I became interested in Japanese history, literature, and culture when I lived there, and have maintained that interest. I have taken several graduate level courses in Japanese literature in the original classical Japanese at UCLA and USC.

And now the big question: Do you watch Japanese historical TV dramas?

When I can find them. My wife and I write Japanese historical fiction and fantasy, some of which is set in the Heian period. It is incredibly difficult to find anything on that period in English, so we have gone through a couple of the NHK dramas, like "Kiyomori" as well as "Yoshitsune" and used them for inspiration on the setting.

Regrettably, in my experience, the English subtitles on the Blu-Ray versions are nearly worthless.

Of course Flynn has had some legal fees. The issue is if these legal fees have "financially wrecked" Flynn to the point he had to sell his house. There is zero concrete evidence that is the case.

Now you are moving the goalposts. There have been several Ledge dwellers here who have cited on multiple occasions they could not subscribe to the 4D chess theory because Flynn has been financially wrecked. I guess the assumption is why would Flynn be a part of such a intricate scheme to destroy the Deep State if it was going to require him to make such a huge personal sacrifice. I am just pointing out there is zero concrate evidence that Flynn was financially ruined due to exorbitant legal fees. The ABC news article TK linked is Fake News according to one of Flynn's personal friends. He sold his house for the normal reason that he was moving somewhere else.

I agree with you that Flynn is innocent of the charges he pled guilty to. Unless you subscribe to the 4D chess theory that Flynn was part of an intricate sting operation, it makes zero sense that he would admit guilt in that situation knowing he did nothing legally wrong. Assuming there is no 4D chess theory, if Flynn knew he was innocent why did he turn down Trump's offer to pay for his legal fees? Mueller's case against him wouldn't have cost him a penny.

jimmyk

Tom R, I'm not moving goalposts, because I've never used the term "financially wrecked," or anything like that. But to get to the point:

Unless you subscribe to the 4D chess theory that Flynn was part of an intricate sting operation, it makes zero sense that he would admit guilt in that situation knowing he did nothing legally wrong.

No, it doesn't make zero sense. This happens all the time because people are afraid of the power of the government to get them convicted (and/or "financially wrecked" in the process). Look what happened to Libby. So yes, Flynn may have copped a plea to avoid getting "Libbyed." And that may be why he has only been financially harmed and not wrecked.

As to why he turned down Trump's offer, who knows? Maybe he's proud. Maybe he thought it would make Trump look bad. You'll have to ask him.

Obama's FBI Knew Russia Aided Iran Nuclear Program Before Uranium One & Iran Deal: Report

"In other words - Obama's "scandal free" administration approved the Uranium One deal and spearheaded the Iran Nuclear Deal after the FBI, headed at the time by Robert Mueller knew, according to Campbell, that:

Russian nuclear executives routed millions in bribe money to a Clinton charity as part of a "uranium dominance strategy." The Clinton Foundation received $145 million in donations from parties connected to Uranium One - in particular, mining executive and close Clinton pal Frank Giustra. Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm, Transport Logistics International (TLI) in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act – which bribed a Russian nuclear official in exchange for a contract transport Russian-mined U.S. uranium, including "yellowcake" uranium secured in the Uranium One deal. A Russian nuclear executive connected to the Uranium One deal engaged in a money laundering and bribery scheme with a United States trucking company, DAHER-TLI.

The Israeli prime minister began his presentation around 1:10 p.m. EST. CNN and Fox News carried his remarks live, while the progressive-leaning MSNBC cut in nearly four minutes after he started. While Netanyahu wound up speaking for nearly 18 minutes total in English, MSNBC stuck with Netanyahu's remarks for about six minutes before cutting away for host Chris Jansing to speak to former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Nicholas Burns.

"I think we ought to stay in. All the evidence so far from the IAEA is that Iran is complying with this deal," Burns said. "It makes sense to the United States to stay in. Our national interests would be advanced by that."

MSNBC went to commercial after Burns spoke and aired a segment on progressive primary wars in 2018 when it returned. Meanwhile, Netanyahu was still speaking.

What a tool. I didn't see Netanyahu's remarks, but I understand he cited evidence that the IAEA didn't have.

More Mueller Conflicts of Interest – His Former Employer is Manafort’s Law Firm!

The Special Counsel law requires that the Attorney General or Assistant Attorney General ensure that the appointed Special Counsel has no conflicts of interest. There is no way that Rod Rosenstein could have determined that Robert Mueller had no conflicts of interest. Congress should request the data related to this assessment and address obvious flaws in approving Mueller, remove Mueller and prosecute Rosenstein for lying and failing his duty as Assistant AG!

Article 600.3.b states in part that that – “The Attorney General shall consult with the Assistant Attorney General for Administration to ensure an appropriate method of appointment, and to ensure that a Special Counsel undergoes an appropriate background investigation and a detailed review of ethics and conflicts of interest issues.”

Mueller is best friends [?] with James Comey who was and is a key player in the FISA and Trump scandals. That alone should have disqualified Mueller from being the Special Counsel. But Mueller has much more. Mueller was the FBI Director during the Uranium One scandal. He even delivered uranium to Russia on an airport tarmac in Europe per Hillary Clinton’s instructions! Any conflict of interest should have disqualified Mueller due to the sensitivity, legal nature and importance of the mandate of the Special Counsel. This was a setup!

Gateway gets a little carried away sometimes (are they really "best" friends?, but the point is valid. How could Mueller pass a conflict of interest review?

Kevlar Kid

When I learned LTG Flynn sold his home I figured that a man of means will restructure his assets to handle significant legal fees to dispose of them ASAP.

Were the proceeds of the sale of his home applied directly to paying the legal fees? Were the proceeds the only way to meet legal costs incurred by the setup/witch hunt? The rooster crowed and the sun came up....

The real story isn't that he sold his home. Not my business.

The real story and what is my business is this stranglehold by the LAWFARE State setting up traps where the targets are guilty of something until they can prove that they are not guilty of anything.

U.S. Confirms Authenticity of Secret Iran Nuclear Docs, Officials See Game Over for Deal

U.S. officials and congressional insiders view the disclosure Monday by Israel of Iran's ongoing efforts to develop a nuclear weapon as game over for the landmark nuclear deal, telling the Washington Free Beacon that new evidence of Iran's top secret nuclear workings makes it virtually impossible for President Donald Trump to remain in the agreement.

Senior Trump administration officials confirmed the findings as authentic and praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's for disclosing thousands of secret documents proving Iran lied about its past work on a nuclear warhead, telling the Free Beacon the revelation was a "powerful presentation" by Israel outlining why the Iran deal must be fixed or killed.

narciso's 9:13

In 1925, while undergoing therapy for polio at Warm Springs, Georgia, FDR wrote a series of columns for the Macon Telegraph, including one that touched on his ideas about immigration. He praised elements of Canada’s immigration policy, especially its regulations “to prevent large groups of foreign born from congregating in any one locality.” Roosevelt added: “If, twenty-five years ago, the United States had adopted a policy of this kind we would not have the huge foreign sections which exist in so many of our cities.”

The future president remarked that “no sensible American wants this country to be made a dumping ground for foreigners of any nation, but it is equally true that there are a great many foreigners who, if they came here, would make exceedingly desirable citizens. It becomes, therefore, in the first place, a question of selection.” Roosevelt informed his readers that “a little new European blood of the right sort does a lot of good in every community.”

I knew that FDR was no friend of the Jews but had no hard evidence. No wonder there was no admittance during WWII except for some artists and scientists, of course. Not only ships but planes were turned back to Europe and sure death for the refugees; those were the ones--FDR's right sort--who had the money to flee.

Another person's shortcomings might make you sad, contemptuous, puzzled, ... many things. But if you feel the red hot bile rising in your throat, then that shortcoming strikes directly at you. It might be a fault you have yourself, it might be a fault held by someone key to your life (parent, spouse) that you were not able to resolve/handle.
