FTA: "Flynn is "one of the most dangerous individuals in America today," said Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a historian and expert on authoritarianism and fascism who wrote the book "Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present."

"He is spearheading the attack on our democracy, which is coming from many quarters, and he is affiliated with many of these sectors, from the military to Christian nationalism to election denial to extremist groups," she said. "All of this comes together to present a very live threat. And he's at the center.""

General Michael Q is a textbook psychopath.


"Retired four-star General Barry McCaffrey says Michael Flynn "has a mental health problem" after he endorsed the idea of a Myanmar-style military coup in the US.

Donald Trump's former National Security Adviser has come under fire for telling a QAnon conference that the toppling of the US government "should" happen.

Gen McCaffrey told MSNBC that Mr Flynn's "dangerous rhetoric" was "harmful" to the US.

"This is putting the country at risk," he said.

"I have never heard anything like this, probably in the last hundred years. This kind of, just completely irresponsible, provocative language."

And he added: "I think Mike Flynn has a mental health problem, to be blunt.

"He has slipped into a different realm."

And he said that the Justice Department would be "hard-pressed not to consider" if Mr Flynn's comments were "criminal in nature."

"As a senior military officer, retired as he is, to be calling for a coup against our democratic country, and he's done this before, is extremely dangerous," he said."

Michael Flynn and his QAnon followers now pose a genuine national security threat, extremism experts say

Boaz never claims Christian status.

Makes me wonder if he's one of those Sons of Odin guys...

I wish I was more than half joking with that comment.

This relates to a prior discussion, and I'm not trying to diss on service folks, but Flynn is a perfect example of why military people shouldn't command respect just because of their service, as some here have suggested.

You mean things like this?

Pentagon opens investigation into Flynn's payments from foreign sources (April 2017)

... Flynn was warned by authorities after he retired from the military in 2014 not to take foreign government-sourced money without "advance approval" from the Pentagon.

Flynn, a former Army lieutenant general and Defense Intelligence Agency chief, later accepted tens of thousands of dollars for his work on behalf of foreign interests, including RT, the state-supported Russian television network, and a Turkish-owned company linked to Turkey's government....

One episode in question involves a trip he took to Moscow in 2015 for RT's anniversary celebration. He was paid at least $33,750 to attend the gala at which he was seated next to Russian President Vladimir Putin....

@#9 ... He would be Sec of Defence in the next Trump administration. ...

Yeah, there is that.

But I do have to say, my main concern here is less the individual (i.e., tactic) and more the overall occurrences (i.e., strategy).

Stated a bit differently, why the f**k is such a high-profile political figure in our politics apparently so cozy with an enemy?

Just how far has Russia penetrated the political process in the Country?

Flynn needs to be arrested, and buried under a prison.

I hope Twisted Sister is suing this -------.

I also hope he's arrested for treason, tried, convicted and executed.
