I mean, come on now.
And of all people, Flynn oughta know better than anybody, having had his life completely destroyed by it, for the unpardonable crime of working for and remaining loyal to President Trump.
You have probably never heard of it, but there is a parallel Supreme Court, of sorts, called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) that General Michael Flynn warns is operating “in almost total secrecy.”
A judicial panel that oversees American intelligence agencies in surveillance matters involving American citizens living in the United States, FISC first came on the public’s radar during the investigation that was launched against the 2016 campaign of former President Donald Trump.
FISC operates as a type of secret police, Flynn further insinuated with a quote from former Sen. Frank Church (D-Id.), who back in the 1970s said that “hiding evil is the trademark of a totalitarian government.” Church further stated that:
“There is no more pernicious threat to a free society than a secret police…operating beyond the law…if these abuses had not been uncovered and had the agencies gone unchecked, we might well have seen a secret police develop in the United States. Once that begins, the Constitution is in very real danger.”
It turns out that Church was right, and his warnings came true. At the dawn of the year 2023, technological advancements, among other things, have allowed the federal bureaucracy to massively expand – its tentacles now reaching into every crevice of American life.
True, observably and beyond all debate. Yet still many of us slumber, seemingly beyond all hope of awakening. New category exclusively for this sort of thing: The Shadow State.
