Note to my readers: Although my main focus is outdoor activities and related things, I do get into politics now and then. A post about this week’s camping trip is coming very soon. Now to something really important for all Americans:
If you haven’t been following the saga of Mike Flynn’s treachery and deceit and you’re surprised that he’s pleading guilty today, this article will help you get up to speed.
Flynn stabbed America in the back when he assured Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that when tRump was sworn in, he’d make sure to reverse the sanctions imposed by President Obama for their interference in our election.
Yeah, that’s a crime. Which is, of course, why he tried to cover up his treachery.
Flynn’s opening strategy was to deny everything. Denied at first that there was even a conversation. Then admitted they spoke but denied that sanctions were discussed.
Oops! His conversation with the ambassador was recorded because our intelligence services, including the FBI, record every call by every Russian spy every time.
Checkmate, Michael. You’re going down.

Here’s the follow-up from my previous posting regarding today’s events in the House Intelligence Committee’s hearings: Director Comey did confirm that the F.B.I. has zero evidence to support our Trumpenfuhrer’s vicious and absurd claim — which came out in one of his ridiculous tweets — that President Obama had him wiretapped.
The Daily Mail from the UK is on this story. Their piece covers this angle of the larger story pretty well, even though Comey’s testimony was just completed. It’s definitely worth a look. Beware, The Daily Mail’s site has lots of ads.
Poor Donald. Nobody believes his shit. Except a few folks who get their news from Breibart, World News Daily, Rush Limpbag and Fox Noise. We’re just marking time until we’re delivered from the hell of Trump’s Amerikkka by impeachment, the invoking of the 25th Amendment or Herr Drumpf’s resignation.
Please, sir, accept from my heart the great load of hate, derision and contempt you so justly deserve. We’re just marking time.
That the Bureau is conducting the investigation is not a surprise. This is breaking news as Director Comey is still giving his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee at the time I’m typing this but anyone who has even the slightest awareness of what’s been going on in this country for the last six months or so knew the FBI was looking into Russian interference in the just-concluded Presidential election. And into whether #DonTheCon or any staffers jumped on board with Putin and his underlings.
Our Trumpenfuhrer can call the story fake news all he likes, this story and this investigation are NOT going to go away.
The FBI will get to the bottom of it. Someone’s going to be indicted. Our unPOTUS will be impeached or removed from office by other means and the results of this inquiry — the existence of which was just explicitly confirmed by Director Comey — will most likely be a big part of why.
I still do not know whether the Director’s testimony will address Herr Drumpf’s ridiculous accusation about being wired tapped by President Obama; I’ll pass that along here in the very unlikely event that you have not by then heard/read about it from 16 other sources.
Outdoor activities, amateur photography and restaurant reviews are still the main topics here but this is a YUGE story and I decided to chime in.
I hope your Monday is off to a good start. I’ll be checking in a little later.
Still spreading contempt for our scum-bag unPOTUS, I am,
