Today #FlynnFlipped! Yay!

These are a few observations about this whole process.

First let's talk about waaaay back in December of 2015.
Flynn (along with Ms. Stein) attended a gala for the 10th anniversary or RT
At this point, Flynn was already part of Donald's inner circle
Notice who is sitting at the left of Flynn? Putin. I wonder how Flyn scored such a honored position? Maybe because he was part of Donald's inner circle?
Notice how people who are engaging in criminal behavior try to deflect by attempting to place their crimes on their opponent?
Remember Flynn getting the crowd to chant "Lock Her Up" at the RNC convention?

How about that pesky time that @DAGYates told many at the White House that Flynn was compromised? In short she was concerned that Flynn WAS compromised by the Russians.

After Flynn left in shame, Donald told him to "Stay Strong"?…
Flynn was on the transition team for Donald and the top National Security adviser also forgot to register as a foreign agent for Russia and Turkey.

He forgot to tell the US Government about the money he received from foreign governments?
Let's not forget about the time he forgot to disclose that he was speaking with the Russians.
Remember, this is the man who speaks directly with the President and Vice President.

Let's see .. what am I forgetting <snap, snap>

Oh yes! His son was his chief of staff. He is as culpable as his father.

Let's not forget about the wack-a-doodle conspiracy theories that his son would peddle.


Flynn just plead guilty to the charge "Lying to the FBI". That's a slap on the wrist compared to what Mueller probably has on him.
Come to think of it, it's the same plea that Mueller gave to Papadopoulos & that led to the indictment of Manafort & Gates.

These kinds of deals aren't hammered out overnight. This takes time, Flynn has to offer up information that is good enough so that Mueller is willing to make a deal with him. This isn't a "I'll show you my hand after you show yours".
Remember this month Mueller also interviewed Kushner. Odds are, Mueller already had the information he wanted from Flynn and used it to "test" Kushner.

My guess, that was a fruitful interview.

As National Security Director Flynn answered to Donald.
During the transition, he answered to Pence

I am sure that Mueller is smart enough not to offer such a sweet deal with Flynn without getting information he needs to catch his biggest fish.
Since he took office Donald has fired Sally Yates, fired Comey, threatened to fire Mueller, asked several Republican representatives to "conclude this as quickly as possible",called this a "witch hunt" & Tweeted about it non-stop
The whole time the @HouseGOP and @SenateGOP do absolutely nothing about it.

At best they say things are "concerning" or "disturbing". Things they would have lost their collective minds about if this were a Democrat.

For a bunch of people who aren't guilty, they all seem to be acting as if they are.

Flynn's cooperation with Mueller may get us closer to the bottom of this cesspool.

I certainly hope so.

I am sure many of you have seen the video from @NowThisNews.

I wanted to break down what is discussed in the video for non-technical people.
The video features hackers at the DEF CON 26 Voter Village.
The voting machines are ES&S & in use in 24 states.
The machines used at DEF CON's voter village were all purchased off of eBay.

The machine highlighted in the video is an ES&S 650 scanner.

The beginning shows hackers gaining access to the scanner via a serial port in the back.

A serial port is a way of connecting two computer devices together. They plugged a laptop into the serial connection and they had access to an operating system prompt.

I just read this article on companies that provide voter services for states and it is worse than I thought it would be.

Spoiler Alert: I am going to break this article down bit by bit and explain why things are "bad".
The election system is decentralized. Each state runs their own elections and the federal government can't tell the states how to run their elections. There's no centralized system for someone to break into, no one way to run an election so the diversity can be a strength.
21 states (that's 42%) were hit by the Russian hackers and they were successful in at least one state. The federal government and the states have done almost nothing to prevent this from happening again.This is thanks, in part, to the decentralized nature of the election systems.

Let's revisit some of the "technical stuff" in this article.

This article is bringing a lot of controversy and some are saying it is sensationalist.…
Let's start with what we know.
21 states were "breached", but what does that mean?

That means that 21 states had information stolen.

This could be information on IP addresses, server names, server types, documents, data about users on the network or confidential information.
Remember, these are usually not single instances, and once they've gained access to the system, the hacker has the opportunity to mosey around
They have the time to find where data are stored, files that may contain passwords, there's no green sign that says "You've been hacked"

Very important thread!!

We have Nazi’s running for office, we need to call these people out and shine light on their atrocious behavior.
Arthur Jones is running for congress in Illinois on the Republican ticket.

Ol’ Art has been around a while. He was part of the American Nazi party & is running on white supremacist ideas.

This is who the @GOP is running on their ticket in IL-3…
Then there’s this piece of work running for office to try to take @SenFeinstein’s seat
Although the state (R) party has denounced Patrick Little, but this speaks to how they vet candidates
Little‘ s vision for the world? It doesn’t take much guess this one…

Did you know that our country is very close to a Constitutional Convention? Quietly our republican controlled state governments are one by one voting to call a Constitutional Convention.
Back when the country was founded we did try to have a government that was a confederation of states, it failed miserably. The Articles of Confederation were ammended in 1787 and our union was completed.
In 1861 the Southern states tried to succeed because they feared the abolitionists of the North would end slavery & they would lose their power in the consolidation of a federal government
The direct result was a bloody war that pitted Americans against Americans & lasted 5 years

John Bolton was seen entering the White House (AKA the Kremlin II) today
Donald is supposedly considering him a replacement for National Security Adviser.
This is the same man who made this video for the NRA, for the Russians.

Once again, National Security Adviser is the position that Donald is considering for John Bolton.
The same extreme whackadoodle that is a #FauxNews Commentator.
In 2001 he derailed a conference in Geneva on biological weapons.…
2002 he demanded the resignation of the head of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
Most recently (late 2016) he suggested that the Russian hacking to help Donald win was a "false flag".…
