(RepublicanWire.org) – Michael Flynn, the former Trump National Security Advisor, just filed a $50 million claim against the FBI and Justice Department for “malicious prosecution” over the Trump Russia collusion investigation.

Flynn filed it on Feb. 22. It names the DOJ, FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington D.C., Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, and the Executive Office of the President as defendants. The claim alleges former President Barack Obama and the FBI had a vendetta against him.

The filing says, “Of all of President Trump’s appointees, the Obama White House hated Flynn the most. The FBI began to express disdain for candidate Donald J. Trump and began to consider ways in which it could hamper Donald Trump as candidate or as President, were he to win the 2016 election.

“As part of these efforts, the FBI began to target Flynn. Flynn was no stranger to the FBI and its leadership, many of whom considered Flynn to be a personal enemy of the FBI and the success of their own FBI careers.

“During this meeting, the participants agreed to try to damage incoming President Trump and his new Administration, including by trying to prosecute Flynn, President-elect Trump’s incoming National Security Advisor, to cause him to resign as NSA, to cripple President Trump’s ability to implement national security and foreign affairs policy changes, and potentially to get Flynn to turn on President Trump.

“On or about November 10, 2016, two days after the Presidential Election, President-elect Trump met with President Obama in the Oval Office. During this meeting, President Obama warned President-elect Trump he had profound concerns about hiring Flynn for any sensitive, high-level national security positions.

“President Obama made this statement despite himself having appointed Flynn to the position of Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012.

“In 2014, Flynn roiled FBI leadership by intervening on behalf of Robyn Gritz, a decorated counterterrorism agent who specifically named and accused Andrew McCabe and other top FBI officials of sexual discrimination and retaliation in her complaint.

“Flynn’s support of Gritz included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case, and an offer to testify on her behalf. 

“His offer to testify made him a hostile witness against McCabe, who was soaring through the FBI leadership ranks. 

“The FBI even sought to block Flynn’s support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn from becoming a witness.

“Flynn was the target of a politically motivated investigation and prosecution that had no merit when it began, no merit during its course, and no merit in the end when the charges were withdrawn by the DOJ and ultimately dismissed by the Court after Flynn received a full pardon.

“During that meritless and unlawful investigation and prosecution, Flynn was falsely and maliciously painted by the conspirators as a traitor to his nation who acted in concert with a foreign power, and the SCO even threatened Flynn’s son with prosecution unless Flynn were to plead guilty. 

“The federal government’s targeting of a citizen for baseless criminal prosecution and eliciting a plea bargain through threatening of family members is outrageous conduct of the highest order. The fact that it was orchestrated and carried out at the highest levels of the FBI, DOJ, and White House makes it all the more outrageous.”

Flynn  is seeking “compensatory damages including but not limited to lost past and future earnings/revenue, emotional distress, lost opportunity to be President’s National Security Advisor, significant restraints of personal liberty, attorney fees/expenses and court costs in defending against malicious prosecution, abuse of process, false arrest.”

Flynn’s lawyer Jesse Binnall said if the claim is denied Flynn will sue:

“For years government bureaucrats and left wing agitators believed they could attack General Flynn with impunity. No more.

“If you wrongfully attack an American hero, then you should be held to account.

“This Federal Tort Claims Act Action is just the beginning of that accountability. Lt. General Michael Flynn will no longer be the pin cushion of the radical left.”

(RepublicanWire) – A couple weeks ago Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, suggested that Biden will be impeached if Republicans win back control of Congress in 2022.

“I think there will be enormous pressure on a Republican House to begin impeachment proceedings. I think there are potentially multiple grounds to consider for impeachment. Probably the most compelling is the utter lawlessness is President Biden to enforce the border. His decision to just deify immigration laws,” Cruz stated.

“That’s probably the strongest grounds right now for impeachment but there may be others,” he noted further.

Just this week former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon also predicted that Joe Biden will be impeached in November.

“You have stood down ICE and you’ve stood down Border Patrol, and guess what? That’s the impeachment hearing I want to hear,” Bannon said during an episode on his War Room podcast.

“You’re going to sit there day after day and week after week and we’re going to bring the witnesses,” Bannon continued, in an attack that appeared to be aimed at Biden. “We’re going to bring the witnesses of what you did to this country and what you did on the southern border.”

“Preserve your documents because after impeachment, they’re going to put you up on criminal charges. Criminal charges for allowing this country to be invaded by your actions,” Bannon said.

“Acts of commission not acts of omission,” said Bannon. “We’re not going to back down, so write it down. This November is about one thing: it’s impeaching Joe Biden to stop this madness and to stop this illegitimate regime from destroying our nation.”

Customs and Border Protection data reveals that agents apprehended nearly 2 million immigrants entering the country illegally along the U.S.-Mexico border during the 2021 calendar year.

That figure is up from nearly 1 million illegal aliens apprehended in the 2019 calendar year.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Netflix management won’t bow down to woke employees. They said they are changing their “culture guidelines” to reflect the view that the company offers a wide range of entertainment programming for many different kinds of audiences.

And if the employees don’t like the content, they can always quit.

“We let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices,” Netflix writes in the updated part of its culture memo. The company said that it supports offering diversity in stories, “even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values.”

“Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful,” Netflix says. “If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.”

A Netflix spokesman said the company updated its culture page on Thursday for the first time since 2017. He said Netflix had spent the past 18 months discussing cultural issues internally with employees. The new language was added, he said, “so that prospective employees could understand our position, and make better informed decisions about whether Netflix is the right company for them.”

Netflix said, “they realize that the more you give to these woke hysterics, the more they want. And the more Netflix gives, the more it detracts from its bottom line.”

For Netflix, the company spokesman said, “employees were given a chance to offer feedback on the new culture guidelines.” He said the company received more than 1,000 comments, which helped shape the new part of the memo.

Netflix is coming off a disappointing quarterly report last month which showed it lost subscribers for the first time in over a decade. Revenue also grew at its slowest pace in years amid rising competition from new and existing streaming rivals. The company said it is exploring offering a lower priced ad-supported version of the platform to help boost its subscriber base.

Shares of Netflix, which surged at the beginning of the pandemic, have fallen by nearly 70% this year.

Companies are, generally speaking, only as woke as their bottom line allows them to be. Netflix is not going to give up the profits that a Dave Chapelle show will generate just to satisfy the transgender lobby among their employees.

They will not sacrifice their brand on the altar of woke activism.

(RepublicanWire.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and several other top Democrats in the U. S. House of Representatives will be served with subpoenas by House Republicans should the GOP prevail in retaking the House in the upcoming midterm elections.

According to some Congressional Republicans, the January 6 panel selectively subpoenaing House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and other members of the Republican caucus has created a new standard that Republicans may choose to replicate upon retaking control of the House.

Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania have been subpoenaed along with McCarthy.

Reportedly, Republicans plan to target the House Speaker’s communications regarding security manners in the run-up to January 6, 2021, and the incidents occurring at the Capitol on that day.

Buddy Carter, a Republican representative from Georgia said, “I’m gonna tell you the truth: Yes, I do” when asked if he believes Republicans should issue a subpoena to Pelosi.

Rep. Carter continued, “This is setting the precedent, and we’re not gonna lie down and let this happen. There are serious questions about her role on January 6 and exactly what she did and what she didn’t do. And we need to get to the bottom of that.”

Brian Mast, a Republican representative from Florida, said, “I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a subpoena there.”

However, Pelosi said on Friday that she is “never afraid of precedent.”

“I’m never afraid of precedent,” the longtime Democratic congresswoman said. “We’re seeking the truth, and we’re not going to be cowards about it.”

Reportedly since January 6, the “disdain” between Pelosi and McCarthy has been palpable.

Jim Banks, a Republican representative from Indiana, said that the selected committee should subpoena the speaker for her testimony about security preparations leading up to and failures on January 6.

Banks said, “Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the only person in the United States who has covered anything up related to January 6. So that’s who they should subpoena. She should be at the top of the list.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – When lunatic leftists began protesting Supreme Court Justices outside their homes, despite the fact these protests violated state and federal laws, Pelosi and the Democrats sought to harness that anger.

Pelosi released a statement calling the pro-abortion fanatics anger “righteous,”while also saying she supported the protests at the homes of the Supreme Court Justices.

“While we have seen and heard extraordinary anguish in our communities, we have been moved by how so many have channeled their righteous anger into meaningful action: planning to march and mobilize to make their voices heard,” Pelosi declared.

But Pelosi’s gambit backfired on multiple fronts.

In response to Pelosi’s call to action, pro-abortion protestors gathered outside her house in San Francisco to complain about Democrats not doing enough to support abortion-on-demand.


“We are here because the Democratic Party and the Democrats as a whole have been complicit in this whole thing,” one protester shouted.

“We are here because this draft decision is what it is, it’s only a draft, and we will protest here, in front of the leadership of the Democratic Party, and in the streets from coast to coast, unceasingly, because we work to keep abortion legal – legal and accessible, not rare,” the protester added.

Another pro-abortion supporter pinned the blame for Democrats not passing a law to codify abortion-on-demand on Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton, who started the whole thing like abortion should be legal, but rare, as if abortion is a tragedy,” the protester ranted. “We are here to say abortion is a basic right, a basic human right, and without this right, women are basically enslaved. And we will not stand for it.”

Another blamed Pelosi for not taking action when Democrats held a filibuster-proof majority under Barack Obama in 2009.

“Speaker Pelosi, this will be your legacy, 35 years of your reign of terror,” the man shouted. “You had a supermajority under Obama, under which this should have been your top priority. Why did you keep this on the table? Because this is your most effective fundraising tool. That’s why.”

This protest showed why the Democrats’ plan to put abortion at the center of the Midterm campaign will backfire.

At the end of the day, if the Supreme Court does strike down Roe v. Wade, it will leave conservatives in the position of scoring a long-sought win while Democrats will be powerless to do anything, which will only depress their base’s vote even further this November.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Biden’s strange speech at an Illinois fundraiser sparked immediate reactions after he began screaming about food shortages and other problems facing the nation under his watch.

“Remember those long lines you’d see on the television and people lining up in all kinds of vehicles just to get a box of food in their trunk? How quickly we forget people were hurting,” Biden said.

“And what did the MAGA crowd want to do? Forget it. Forget it,” he continued angrily. “God, this is the United States of America. The idea that people would have to wait in line an hour or hour and a half to get a box of food in their trunk — it’s just unbelievable.”

In America, food shortages don’t seem possible because it’s a preposterous idea that a nation that grows and produces enough food to feed 10% of the planet is actually experiencing food shortages.

In an attempt to quell food shortages, the Biden administration said it plans to increase the number of counties eligible for insurance for double cropping, which is when farmers plant a second crop on the same land in the same year.

“Double cropping comes with real risks,” the president said. “If the weather conditions aren’t ideal, or at least good … then the timing of everything is thrown off.”

“But it’s a risk we need to take,” Biden added. “That’s why my administration is looking at how to extend crop insurance coverage to give financial security to farmers.”

Food prices will soar by 22.9% this year, highlighted by a 40% rise in wheat prices, according to the report issued late last month.

Biden assured in his remarks that his administration “can make sure that American agriculture exports will make up for the gap in Ukrainian supplies.”

And leaving the farm in Illinois, Biden told CNN that inflation is “going down,” after the latest data from the Consumer Price Index revealed that US inflation increased at a slower pace than in previous month.

“They’re going down,” Biden said. “Got a lot more to go down.”

As the shortages continue and worsen, Biden will switch gears and begin to blame “greedy farmers” for wanting to make a buck. He will blame anyone for the economic mess this country is in, except himself.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Monday blasted the Biden administration over the creation of the Disinformation Governance Board, explaining that they are attempting to “stifle dissent, to try to elevate a chosen political narrative that’s endorsed by the regime.” He said it is a move that is contrary to a “free society.”

DeSantis made his remarks during a press conference in Miami, Florida, where he signed a bill recognizing November 7 as Communism Victims Day to “honor the more than 100 million people who have fallen victim to communist regimes across the world.”

“Today, Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill (HB) 395, establishing November 7 as “Victims of Communism Day” to honor the hundreds of millions of people who have suffered under communist regimes across the world. The Governor also announced that he will approve $25 million in the budget to support renovations and restoration of the historic Freedom Tower in downtown Miami. Additionally, the Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 160 to approve road designations across the state, including three designations to honor brave Cubans who fought against the Castro Regime. More information can be found here“.

“We want to make sure that every year, folks in Florida, but particularly our students, will learn about the evils of communism, the dictators that have led communist regimes and the hundreds of millions of individuals who suffered and continue to suffer under the weight,” the governor said, noting that there are still people who openly promote “things like socialism and communism.”

DeSantis pointed out what the legislation represents.

“We’ve got to be willing to speak out when we see things that aren’t consistent with our values in our own country,” he said, pointing directly to recent actions of the Biden administration — namely, the creation of the Disinformation Governance Board led by radical leftist Nina Jankowicz.

“Having the federal government set up a disinformation bureau in the Department of Homeland Security is wrong,” he said.

“What they are doing to try to stifle dissent, to try to elevate a chosen political narrative that’s endorsed by the regime and to try to marginalize dissenters,” the governor said, is “not what a free society is all about.”

DeSantis said he believes the administration will use the bureau to “feed the social media platforms with what they want to be censored and not want to be censored.”

“There is no orthodoxy that the government can impose on us. We’re able to speak, speak our mind,” he said, adding that the disinformation bureau needs to be eliminated.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) criticized Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen for testifying that abortion benefits the economy.

The Senate Banking Committee met on Tuesday, where Yellen made a questionable remark that provoked the reaction from Scott. Yellen was commenting on the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that is now expected to be struck down by the Supreme Court, saying the ruling legalizing abortion nationwide boosted women’s workforce participation.

“Just for clarity’s sake, did you say that ending the life of a child is good for the labor force participation rate?” Scott asked.

Scott stated, that while people can disagree on the issue of abortion rights, framing it in the perspective of labor force participation and economic considerations “just feels callused” and “harsh.”

Yellen replied by saying she didn’t mean to be harsh when discussing the effects of abortion on the economic system but said she was discussing the ability of women to regulate their “reproductive situation” in ways that enable them to plan their lives and seek fulfillment.

“And one aspect of a satisfying life is being able to feel that you have the financial resources to raise a child, that the children you bring into the world are wanted, and that you have the ability to take care of them,” she said.

Yellen pointed out that many abortions are obtained by teenagers, low-income women, and minorities.

“This is not harsh. This is the truth,” she told lawmakers.

Scott responded, “as a guy raised by a black woman in abject poverty,” he is thankful to be sitting at the hearing as a senator. He characterized Yellen’s remarks about abortion as “unusually piercing.”

The comments that brought about the exchange between Yellen and Scott came after Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) asked the treasury secretary about the economic effects of a decision reversing Roe.

She said eliminating abortion rights would have “very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades.”

Yellen said Roe v. Wade helped lead to increased labor-force participation, allowed many women to complete their education, and increased their earning potential.

“Research also shows that it had a favorable impact on the well-being and earnings of children,” she said. “There are many research studies that have been done over the years looking at the economic impacts of access, or lack thereof, to abortion, and it makes clear that denying women access to abortion increases their odds of living in poverty or need for public assistance.”

Yellen’s testimony was met with criticism on Twitter.

(RepublicanWire.org) – CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale looked in to President Joe Biden’s claim that he had reduced the deficit.

Since Biden’s has taken office, there has been record-setting inflation and still-rising gas prices. President Biden insisted last Wednesday that he had decreased the federal deficit. “Let me remind you again, I reduced the federal deficit,” Biden said.

On CNN “New Day” Monday morning, Dale did some digging to find out if Biden’s claim was true.

Dale started off by saying that the deficit had fallen in the first year of Biden’s presidency. However, he said it had nothing to do with anything Biden had done.

“There is no doubt that the deficit has fallen under President Biden so far,” he said. “It was about $3.1 trillion under President Trump in fiscal 2020, it was about $360 billion lower than that, so about $2.8 trillion, in fiscal 2021 mostly under President Biden.”

“Experts I spoke to still scoffed at the idea that President Biden is personally responsible for having reduced the deficit. In fact, one advocate of deficit reduction, Marc Goldwein of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, told me that this claim is almost bizarro world, a reversal of reality,” Dale continued.

Dale went on to note that the deficit was expected to fall by more than $360 billion anyway. He added that the Congressional Budget Office had predicted it would fall by more than $870 billion “if President Biden did not implement new policy.”

Dale’s conclusion was that the shortfall between the expected deficit reduction and the actual reduction was a direct result of policies that were implemented by the Biden administration. One of those policies was the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan and the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

“Whatever you think of all those policies, they all cost money,” Dale said. “So there ended up being less deficit reduction than expected.”

Dale also consulted Dan White, a senior director at Moody’s Analytics, White told Dale, “The actions of this administration and Congress have undoubtedly resulted in higher deficits, not smaller ones. It is encouraging that the administration has proposed some initiatives to bring down the deficit, but so far none of those initiatives have been seriously considered.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – In a recent edition of “The View,” co-host Sunny Hostin accused Black and Latino Republicans of being traitors for their political beliefs, calling them “oxymorons.”

Co-host Lindsey Granger, a Black Republican defended her conservative values that Hostin really pounced. While Granger offered to talk about them, Hostin interjected to ask if she identifies as a Republican, which Granger affirmed that she did. 

The scene got particularly heated after Hostin said, under her breath, it’s an oxymoron for her to be a Black Republican. She also accused Granger of being a Trump supporter.

Granger fired back by turning towards Hostin, saying she is an oxymoron, as a Catholic who disagrees with abortion on religious grounds, though she still wants abortions to be legal. 

The heated exchange included accusations of how Hostin repeatedly claimed I don’t understand either of you,” as she specified “I don’t understand Black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans.”

Hostin also slammed Navarro and former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham for supporting the Republican Party while being “complicit” in causing division.

Following the segment, Republican women chimed in to take issue with Hostin’s remarks.
