He likewise stated that “90% of federal companies” must be gotten rid of.
The reactionary extremist pressed his theories in a speech previously today at a project occasion for Trump-endorsed, QAnon-supporting election denier Mark Finchem, who’s running for Arizona secretary of state.
“Just lock ’em up,” Flynn exclaimed, obviously describing federal firms he desires shuttered.
“States’ rights,” he included. “Did you understand that a guv can state war? A guv can state war. And we’re going to most likely see that,” Flynn alerted.

It wasn’t clear what scenarios may persuade guvs to “state war” in Flynn’s situation– perhaps if they’re dissatisfied with the outcome of governmental elections in a democracy. The last time guvs attempted that, it introduced a civil war they didn’t win.
Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the Constitution states that it is Congress that has the power to “state war,” to “raise and support armies.” For the U.S. to wage war, Congress needs to pass a resolution in both chambers, then present it to the president, who will then direct the military as “leader in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States,” according to Article II, Section 2.
Flynn left the Trump administration within weeks after he was called nationwide security advisor since of his lies about connections to Russia amidst the examination into Kremlin disturbance into the 2016 governmental election.
He later on pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his Russian ties throughout Trump’s project and shift into the White House. He was sentenced to jail, however Trump pardoned him in 2020.
Flynn, who previously this month declared “Israelis” are trying to inject robotics into Americans to turn them into cyborgs, has actually been designated a “survey watcher” for midterm elections by the Republican Party in Sarasota, Florida. He’ll be signed up with by a leader of the regional Proud Boys militia, which intends to topple the U.S. federal government. (Flynn recently stated he heard salad dressings were being laced with COVID vaccines.)
Critics rage that Trump pardoned Flynn– which he continues to gather a military pension while he appears to oppose whatever the armed force is testified secure.
A state is going to state war versus the federal government? Sure, Mike. Best of luck with that.

And this man is a retired general. How he hasn’t been remembered to task and court-martialed is beyond me.
