    1. You have to wonder how many times in his career he has hooked his wagon to nutters that was not in the USA best interest.. #DamnatoMemoriae #Covid45 #VanillaISIS #Cult #StillWinning #BornTreasonous #ChristiansCanFlipflopTo

    2. @Feon Jun all draft dodgers are cowards but the worst of the worst are the one’s that wouldn’t fight themselves but are more than willing to send others into harm’s way for political purposes. Those tend to be chicken hawk neocons

    3. @Clifton Patterson you mean they will pardon him? like the guy that was is charge before, who is of his adoration?

    1. Yes, I think he has nailed his colors to the mast now. It is clear he thinks there’s no reason it should happen here. He certainly can’t deny that.

  1. His pension should be revoked and he should be tried and then jailed!!! Lock Flynn Up!!!

  2. “The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the Defense Department’s authority to prosecute retired service members for crimes they commit, even after retirement.Feb 22, 2019”

  3. Flynn dishonors the uniform he’s worn and the country he’s sworn to defend. He should be reinstated to active duty and face court martial by military tribunal.

    1. @Jacob Calham In my official capacity as a U.S. citizen and someone who believes in Duty, Honor, Country. And as someone with no tolerance for those who support the confederacy, nazis, Putin, pedophiles, liars, men who brag about assaulting or raping women, p**sy grabbers, anyone who considers U.S. Service Members suckers and losers, insurrectionist, confederate flag wavers/supporters and anyone who calls themselves AMERICAN yet is a supporter/defender of Flynn or his friends. Anything else you want to know?

    2. flynn, like trump, dishonors HUMANITY!
      COVER UP! finally i hear the right words being used to describe the GOP’s illegal refusal to investigate 1-6. in fact, EVERY senator who voted against the investigation COMMITTED an act of sedition and obstruction of justice. THEY ALL NEED TO BE ARRESTED!
      every GOP member who voted to overturn the election or who supports trump’s election lies need to recuse themselves or be FORCIBLY recused from ANY vote concerning 1-6 or the 2020 vote election. since when do the suspects of a crime get to decide whether or not they’re investigated for that crime?
      the u. s. has never been a society of “rule of law.” politicians, corporations, CEO’s, corporate board members, cops and the rich have all, traditionally, been subjected to a more lenient set of laws, exceptions, exemptions and privileges than the rest of us. that needs to CHANGE!
      we have criminals and traitors PUBLICLY pushing a treasonous and seditious message across the news media and across america. THIS ISN’T LEGAL! why aren’t the dems and the DOJ doing ANYTHING to put these HIGH RANKING seditionist spokespeople in prison? what the hell’s going on here?

  4. How many times does this guy have to prove he’s a enemy of America until someone does something about it

    1. The real enemy of the USA is what you see looking back at you in the mirror. Believe the lies and and don’t look elsewhere. There is more to the story than what your attuned too.

    2. @Steven Durward Please elaborate. And if it came from QAnon or InfoWars or OANN, I’ve heard it. And it’s BUNK. You’re the one listening to lies.

  5. I don’t understand how anyone finds this surprising. From the people I’ve met traveling around this country, 20% being stupid, gullible and hateful seems a modest estimate.

    1. “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.” — 18 U.S. Code § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy

    2. These are the same ppl that say racism in America doesn’t exist, yet flipped a sh!t when a black athlete kneeled during the national anthem and made BS lies about it being disrespectful to the country, military, and flag. They actually disrespect the country, military, flag, and constitution and they think they’re patriots. Talk about batshit crazy lol

  6. BREAKING NEWS: WATER IS WET. Dudes been a traitor, he’s just not afraid to say it out loud now because half the country is down with him.

    1. you know how many traitors we have RIGHT NOW in the military and in police-forces across the nation? being a pro-fascist, pro-militia fanatic is practically a prerequisite for admission into the military or into any police force. most militia, cops and gangsters are ex-military who got their training – FREE – from the military.
      our tax dollars are funding our OWN domestic enemies and terrorists.

    1. @Rickey Bowden white people have been doing this for 200 years, but it’s only now you get offended by it. Interesting , i wonder why

    3. @Rickey Bowden Of course it’s the most privileged, most entitled majority who wave the Gadsden flag to complain about their corrupt government. The same government who, for centuries, created biased and prejudiced laws and policies to elevate that group and keep other groups down.
      Civil injustices are being called out so *now* the government is “corrupt” and “dividing us”.
      Yeah, we all get how that logic works.

  7. Don’t forget we are awaiting justice regarding his brother’s interference in releasing National Guard troops requested by DCMPD and the Capitol Police.

    3. @Nathan Schumacher Yeah, because congress got so much done regarding the insurrection that trump explicitly incited.

    4. @Michael Mcduffee Make noise, create a crisis, camp outside your senator’s office and make annoy the living daylights out of them, that’s the only way to create change, it’s through a crisis

    5. @Michael Mcduffee They got people that flew from across the country to try to overthrow the government yet we got people that barely have the energy to pick up the phone, come on now we gotta win

    1. @Francis Peter I agree the subject of abortion can be complicated by several important factors. Even those of us who have committed it only rise up in self justification and abdication. The great Sadhguru has stated that Bengal tigers should be encouraged to propagate and Indian women should be given awards for not reproducing. The situation in India and elsewhere being one of too little habitat for all of God’s creatures because humans are hogs. Man cannot create life but only recreate death. Life being considered as God in the flesh. I submit the subject of abortion and the law should be finally decided by women. They have the most skin in the game. Freedom is a double edged sword. It means to do as thou will. Same philosophy as the Church of Satan.

    2. @Elizabeth Stanford Yes that’s the reason no one turned up it was because of covid safety, and I am the queen mother. Is that why no one watches his speeches on tv and online too? I don’t think Trump supporters put their lives in danger for Trump and I don’t think they believe everything he says either. Trump gave his supporters an order? What order was that? I don’t get the impression at all from Republicans that they are starting to see how wrong they were about Trump. Quite the reverse, most of them are missing his American first attitude. I don’t know how anyone would want a president who puts America last.

      In the last election, it was a choice between a candidate who is pro-life, and pro-peace, and a candidate who is pro-choice, and has voted in favor of every war in his long career. Now if you want to tell me what is more important than the conservation of human life, be my guest. That alone is enough for a reasonable person to vote for the first candidate, regardless of any other criticism. No one is claiming Trump is a saint, or is morally superior, or always tells the truth and none of those qualities apply to Biden either. I suppose it’s possible you could be right in saying Trump doesn’t care if I drop dead, but he clearly cares more about human life than the other choice, so it’s a fair bet he cares more about all of our lives more than Biden does.

      If you are going to look at Trump’s background critically, a reasonable person would want to look at Biden’s background too. When I find out more about Trump it’s never enough to make him sound worse than Biden. Every time I find out more about Biden it makes me more convinced he is a very nasty piece of work.

    3. @Elizabeth Stanford Trump told the protesters at the capital to go home. Some disobeyed his express order. You say he threw them under the bus. I say they were insubordinate and deserve the punishment.

    1. No it’s not the censorship police of the left they remove everything that will hurt Biden

  8. Again, if he was anyone else, other than a republican, he would be in deep, deep trouble.

  9. “Is he protected by the statement after the fact…” Girrrrrrl. He is protected by his (lack) of melanin and he knows it. Traitor.

  10. Flynn’s denial is meaningless. His plain words supported a military takeover. That is unquestionable. He must be punished. We can’t have generals, or retired generals supporting a coup.

    1. He could be recalled and face a court marshal any time by the army, he is blatantly violating the UCMJ
