    1. Less than a week after receiving a presidential pardon for lying to the FBI, Mike Flynn is pushing a call for martial law — and drawing sharp denunciation from other retired senior military officers.

    Retired Army Lt. Gen. Flynn, who was Trump’s first national security adviser and before that his most important military validator, circulated a petition for martial law in a Tuesday tweet. “Freedom never kneels except for God,” Flynn commented.

    The petition, from a Tea Party affiliate named Tom Zawistowski, implored Trump to proclaim “limited martial law” and order the military to conduct a do-over of the presidential election so as to reflect what it claims is “the true will of the people.” It explicitly envisioned “temporarily suspend[ing] the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections.” And it also reflects a recent rise in desperation from MAGA now that Trump’s efforts at overturning the election have fallen apart in multiple courtrooms.

    The petition even compared America’s bloodiest conflict to the current Trumpist inability to cope with an election loss. “Today, the current threat to our United States by the international and domestic socialist/communist left is much more serious than anything Lincoln or our nation has faced in its history — including the civil war,” it reads.

    But the petition suggested that unless Trump is installed for another term, his supporters would engage in violence. “Without a fair vote, we fear, with good reason, the threat of a shooting civil war is imminent,” it asserted.....

    Paul Yingling, a retired Army colonel, put it more bluntly. “Flynn's anti-election propaganda is an essential precursor to violent terrorist attacks on legitimate electoral outcomes,” Yingling told The Daily Beast. “When the bombs go off, the blood is on Mike Flynn's hands.”.....

    In replies to the post, Trump supporters called for “military tribunals, public executions,” and more. “I SAY DO WHATEVER IS NEEDED TO STOP THIS ELECTION FRAUD BY SATAN AND HIS MINNONS!!!” another replied....

    2. In July 2016, it was reported Michael Thomas Flynn was being considered as Trump's running mate. Fortunately or unfortunately, Trump instead selected Indiana Governor Mike Pence, otherwise US democracy and freedom would perish in no time. Even before the 2020 election had taken place, President Trump was making unfounded claims of electoral fraud. Hence if Flynn is the vice president, he would quite likely talk Trump into stealing the election by executing a military coup to reflect what he claims is “the true will of the people”.

    Flynn always invokes God for his own political ends. For instance, less than a week after receiving a presidential pardon for lying to the FBI, he circulated a petition for martial law in a tweet, “Freedom never kneels except for God.”

    If Flynn is sent to join the two real National Thanksgiving Turkeys, Corn and Cob, at their new home on the campus of Iowa State University, they might say (if they could talk): "Don't bring that detestable fellow here. He is not a National Thanksgiving Turkey, but a National Thanksgiving Gamecock. It's only a matter of time before the fighting cock drives us out of our home." :)
