These deep staters really didn’t want policy and action changed.

Bolton has proved himself to be “good cop”.

Talk tough but never means to actually go against the deep state graft and corruption and treason.

Also note that the Arab Spring involved Google execs and Obama’s pals Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn and a bunch of rabble rousers remarkably similar to Antifa.

The way Facebook and Twitter were used in Arab Spring served as a prototype for “Antifa Spring”.

snip from my link above ...The Wall Street Journal reported that by 2013, surveillance of Netanyahu was focused on protecting the Iran nuclear negotiations. Netanyahu’s invitation to address Congress caught the White House by surprise and the surveillance was not only directed at Israelis or even pro-Israel Americans, but members of Congress who were skeptical that the Islamic terror regime would ever scuttle its nukes.

The Iran Deal ushered in a surveillance shift from monitoring the former allies that Obama wanted to toss overboard, to monitoring Americans who were friendly to those governments, and then leading members of the political opposition, and finally members of an incoming administration. Obama and his associates had redefined national security as the pursuit of his dangerous foreign policy, and the new national security threats were administration critics who were surveilled in order to entrap them.

Surveillance had morphed from spying on Obama’s political opponents to conspiring to lock them up.

General Flynn had been a key opponent of the Iran policy, as detailed by Lee Smith in How Russiagate Began With Obama’s Iran Deal Domestic Spying Campaign. Flynn’s arrival not only threatened the Iran Deal, but the politicized intelligence agencies that had been covering for Iran even during the Bush days. Beyond protecting the Iran Deal and Obama’s legacy, the fake intelligence machine was defending itself.

Flynn had already been forced out once. His return wasn’t supposed to happen and was seen as a threat.

Oubai Shahbandar, who had worked for the DIA and served on the ground in Iraq as a strategic analyst, noted that Flynn had warned Obama that Al-Qaeda in Iraq would make a comeback, “Flynn’s prophetic warnings would play out exactly as he’d warned shortly after he was fired.”

It was bad enough that Obama’s foreign policy vets and intelligence cronies had failed. The prospect of having Flynn return to take advantage of their mistakes and wreck their credibility was unthinkable.

The pretext for taking down Flynn was generated when he called Ambassador Kislyak about an anti-Israel resolution coming up at the UN. The Obama administration had played a key role in generating these shadow resolutions by other countries to pressure Israel. The Jewish State, along with the UAE, the Saudis, and Egypt, and any Trump associates friendly to them, had become targets in a shadow war meant to keep Obama’s foreign policy in place even under the incoming Trump administration.

Obamagate was waged to protect a foreign policy based around Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood.

That was why Walid Phares, a Trump adviser, was also investigated by the FBI and the Mueller team for his friendliness to President Sisi’s anti-Islamist government in Egypt. Flynn and Phares were investigated because they posed a threat to Obama’s pro-Islamist foreign policy. That was Susan Rice’s pretext for unmasking the names of Trump officials meeting with the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates.

The Obama administration had not only redefined support for Islamic terror states as being in our country’s national interest, but it also redefined opposition to Islamic terror as a national security threat.

Flynn and Phares were targeted because they were critics of the Iran Deal and the Brotherhood. /snip

And ever since Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech, al Qaeda’s Zawahiri and his brother were safe from the US.

Tom Fitton Breaking — Obama admin knew weapons were shipped from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists…
citizenfreepress ^ | citizenfreepress
Posted on 10/22/2019, 8:17:48 AM by MarvinStinson

DOD records obtained by Judicial Watch contain the first official documentation that the Obama administration knew that weapons were being shipped from the Port of Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria.

The heavily redacted documents do not disclose who was shipping the weapons. Another DIA report, written in August 2012 (the same time period the U.S. was monitoring weapons flows from Libya to Syria), said that the opposition in Syria was driven by al Qaeda and other extremist Muslim groups: “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” The growing sectarian direction of the war was predicted to have dire consequences for Iraq, which included the “grave danger” of the rise of ISIS.

“These documents also point to connection between the collapse in Libya and the ISIS war – and confirm that the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists.”

John Brennan Revoked the Security Clearances of Benghazi Heroes, Independent Sentinel ^ | 8/17/18 | S. Noble
FR Posted on 8/21/2018, 4:41:07 AM by Libloather
**SNIP** Paronto said he never shared intel but his security clearance was removed by Brennan. Brennan never told him why. He blasted Brennan for the way the heroes of Benghazi were treated upon return. “We come back from being on the ground to be treated as a second-class citizen. You come back and you’re called a liar,” Paronto told Fox News. “Brennan came in and there was no talk of ‘hey, good job guys,’ not that you look for it, but instead, it was ‘don’t say anything guys, we don’t want the truth to get out.’”He didn’t let up on Twitter. (Excerpt) Read more at ...

NOTE: Paronto is a former Special Forces officer, a surviving member of a six-man security team who was given “stand down” orders from Hussein / Hillary / Brennan following the distress calls concerning a planned Jihad attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi. General Carter Ham received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help as the planned attack was taking place - immediately he said that he had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready... General Ham, was then given the order to Stand Down during the attack; which he protested... Therefore, he was relieved of Command of AFRICOM and physically removed from his TOC, Tactical Operations Center by Cankles Deep State pals. Also relieved was the admiral in command of an aircraft carrier strike group in the Middle East, Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette during its deployment.

You are correct, as was reported at the time, Ham was literally escorted out of the TOC.

And Brennan went beyond just waxing Kris’s clearance.

Kris mentioned to me, Brennan went out of his way to end his contractor work. As well, Kris not only received death threats, but he was under heavy surveillance, and someone was messing with his finances.

Brennan tried to destroy Kris.

At first he didn’t know what to do and went through a pretty rough spell. But Kris went semi public, which probably saved his life.

Gen Ham and many others had to be kept from possibly learning what the real purpose was of ending Steven’s life.

As I am sure you know, Steven’s body was far away from the “annex”, and the team our guys tried to save at the “annex”, was actually a hodgepodge “wet team” sent to acquire and destroy evidence of two taskers Stevens had really worked on, both involving the Russians.

Obama and HRC had to take Steven’s out, and the attack was both a real prop, and cover.

H/T ThunderSleeps...... hyped-up leftists/fascists have made a disturbing amount of progress taking control.

But they screwed-up with 8 years of bammy.

Fortunately for us, he turned out to be pretty much of an idiot, an empty suit, not even a tin pot dictator of note.

As Rush noted-----he dared not even give the appearance of "governing" b/c that wold mean (yikes) taking responsibility.

And other than (A) advancing the Third World criminal behavior of his homeland, (B) looting the US Treasury, and, (C) getting a foot in the door with the govt fraud of obamacare didn't do much except expose them all as the feckless left.
