  • Michael Flynn says the coronavirus pandemic was made up to distract from the 2020 election.

Former national security advisor Michael Flynn said that he believes the coronavirus pandemic was fabricated to distract from the 2020 election.

Flynn, who has become a prominent figure in the QAnon conspiracy theory, falsely claimed in an interview Friday that the virus was made up before November 3 last year "to gain control" of society.

"When you look around the world, why do all these places not have the problems that we keep getting beat over the head and shoulders on in this country when it comes to Covid?" Flynn said, according to The Independent.

"Why? Because everything, everything, and this is my truth, what I believe, everything is a distraction to what happened on November 3," he continued. "Everything we hear about Covid, and how Covid started before November 3, it is all meant to control, it is all meant to gain control of a society to be able to force decisions on society, instead of allowing 'we the people' to make decisions."

Flynn also claimed he had taken hydroxychloroquine - the anti-malaria prescription drug touted by Former President Trump as a COVID-19 cure - for 30 years.

The drug, which is often given to US military members to prevent malaria in foreign countries, has been proven not to help against COVID-19, multiple studies have shown. Flynn is a retired United States Army lieutenant general.

Flynn served as Former President Donald Trump's national security advisor in January and February 2017 before resigning over reports that he had lied about his contact with a Russian official.

He later pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his communications with Russia's ambassador to the US at the time. Trump eventually pardoned him.

Because the GOP played the long game since the 1960s/public school integration, and cut funding for public education every chance they could.

Now that's a first class conspiracy theory. 

Why don't you look up what's actually happened to education funding since 1960 and get back to me.

Since I don't want conspiracy theories to be left unchecked. Here's the reality:

On average, the United States currently spends over $15,000 per student each year, and inflation-adjusted K-12 education spending per student has  increased  by 280 percent since 1960.

Those brain cells might have been missing since 2016.  With the lost election, the brain cell deficit is obvious.

Add 95,000 to that.  3.5 million have died world-wide.  Looks like the entire world is in on Trump's lost campaign.

I wonder if he thinks his pardon can be revoked.

Where do you start with a person like this?

1) Is he doing this just to be relevant?

2) Does he really believe what he is saying?

If number 2 is correct, then how the hell did he attain the rank and position he has without someone noting that he isn't playing with a full deck?

There is a growing trend to have officers undergo a psychological evaluation when they are considered for promotion to field grade officers. (see the revamp of the SEALS and new evaluations for team leaders) I think officers should have to do an additional eval. when considered for flag grades. JMHO

Maybe a little of both?  Let's hope every last bit of access to any US military operations has been yanked from this fool.  I hope his pardon cannot reverse what's been removed.

I'm sure it has. He was convicted of a federal crime. He probably still has his military bennies, but I doubt if anyone is letting him consult on anything of a military nature.
