Former Chumph NSC Adviser Flynn Now Under Investigation By Pentagon

Every day, another layer of dirt on Putin’s Bitch’s boys taking bribes from Russia.

Elijah Cummings just released new docs that destroy Mike Flynn’s defense for taking foreign cash

Newly released documents reveal that the Department of Defense warned former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn against taking money from foreign governments — but nevertheless, he persisted.

CNN reports that the new documents show Flynn was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to not accept cash from foreign governments in 2014 as he entered retirement. Flynn nonetheless took money from both the Russian and Turkish governments for paid speeches and for lobbying work, respectively.

“These documents raise grave questions about why General Flynn concealed the payments he received from foreign sources after he was warned explicitly by the Pentagon,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who released the documents on Thursday. “Our next step is to get the documents we are seeking from the White House so we can complete our investigation. I thank the Department of Defense for providing us with unclassified versions of these documents.”

In a press statement on the documents, Cummings also noted that the newly revealed DIA letter “counters the suggestion by Flynn’s attorney on Tuesday that Flynn followed appropriate procedures for accepting foreign funds for his trip to Moscow.”

Both Cummings and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) this week said that it appeared that Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, might have committed a felony by not disclosing payments he received from foreign governments before he assumed the role of national security adviser.

What’s that thing Stevie Wonder sang?

“So, it’s gettin’ ready to blow
It’s gettin’ ready to show
Somebody shot off at the mouth and
We’re gettin’ ready to know

It’s gettin’ ready to drop
It’s gettin’ ready to shock
Somebody done turned up the heater
An’a it’s gettin’ ready to pop”

Former High Ranking Republican Gets the Hoffa Treatment!

Wow… Makes you wonder what this guy was ‘fessing up to! And to who?

Body of former Pentagon official found in landfill

Delaware authorities are investigating the circumstances surrounding the recent discovery of the body of a former Pentagon official in a landfill, according to a statement released Monday by the Newark, Delaware, Police Department.

The Delaware medical examiner’s office has ruled the death of 66-year-old John P. Wheeler a homicide.

Wheeler was discovered at Wilmington’s Cherry Island Landfill on December 31.

Wheeler, who lived in New Castle, worked under three Republican presidents — Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush. He served as a special assistant to the Air Force secretary from 2005 to 2008.

Among other things, he also served as head of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and was the first chairman of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

A staff officer in Vietnam, Wheeler was a graduate of West Point, as well as Harvard Business School and Yale Law School.

“We are asking for the public’s assistance” in the case, Newark police spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall told CNN. “We don’t know where the crime scene occurred. The body was dumped within our jurisdiction.” Newark is about 12 miles southwest of Wilmington.

Farrall noted that Wheeler’s body was seen jutting out of a garbage truck at the landfill by a spotter whose job it is to ensure that hazardous material is not dumped there.

Police believe Wheeler’s body was most likely picked up by the truck at one of the first of ten specially designated dumpster pick-up spots before heading to the landfill.

Farrall said police do not know when Wheeler was last seen. He noted that Wheeler had been scheduled to take a train from Washington to Wilmington near the time of the death, though he dismissed reports that Wheeler had actually been seen on a train.

Islamic Services At The Pentagon

American soldiers come in all colors, they can be from anywhere and are a cross section of the peoples from all of the varied places Americans come from…

American Muslim Soldiers at Prayers

At Pentagon 9/11 site, Muslims pray without objection

Inside the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial Chapel, a female Air Force sergeant unlaced her combat boots, set them under the pews and slipped her black veil around her hair and over her camouflaged uniform.

The men pushed back the altar for Christian services to make room for their large green prayer rugs; then they moved the podium from one side of the room to the other so that the congregation would be facing Mecca.

“Allah akhbar,” called out Ali Mohammed, a contractor who works at the Pentagon, raising his hands to his face as he chanted the call to prayer. While politicians and others across the country in an election year debate the propriety of building a Muslim center, including a mosque, two blocks from the former World Trade Center site in New York, there’s no sign of such debate at the Pentagon.

Instead, about 400 worshipers, including Muslims, attend prayer services every week in the chapel, a non-denominational facility built over the rubble left behind when American Airlines Flight 77 slammed into the Pentagon.

Opponents of the New York mosque say it would be disrespectful of those killed on Sept. 11, 2001, to allow Muslims to pray near the World Trade Center site.

That’s never been an issue at the Pentagon, where 125 people who worked there died that day. Muslims have been praying at the Pentagon’s chapel since 2002, gathering every day at 2 p.m. around the time of the second of five prayers Muslims are supposed to offer daily.

Another of Those “Non-Terrorist” Attacks, This Time on the Pentagon

It’s amazing what is, and ain’t terrorism in this country. It would seem that terrorism, got a little Jim Crow, too…

This domestic terrorist was a 911 “Truther”, with – if the Internet postings are to believed –  strong anti-government leanings. And while I tend to agree with him that the Raygun Administration utilized the drug trade to finance illicit operations off the books, and to as a unintended result, illicitly enrich certain Military personnel (Ollie North, anybody?) – that horse left the barn a long time ago.

What I find interesting is the the 911 “Truther” group has moved from being “wild-eyed leftist whackos” the right identified as “traitors” and “socialists” during the Bushit Administration – to being “wild-eyed Teabaggers with guns” embraced, and courted, and egged-on by the Republican Party. The right is once again manufacturing and attempting to mainstream more Timothy McVeighs  – with the full indoctrination of media whack jobs like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

Well wishes to the Pentagon Security guys who were injured for a speedy, and full recovery.

Gunman killed after shooting 2 Pentagon police

The Pentagon

A California man killed in a shootout with Pentagon police drove cross-country and arrived at the military headquarters’ subway entrance armed with two semiautomatic weapons, authorities said Friday. The shooter apparently left behind Internet postings resentful of the government and airing suspicions about the 9/11 attacks. Read the rest of this entry »
