Goodbye, Oberführer Trump

Under many names – including Paul Leka’s GLENWOODS – this song was written by Leka, Gary DeCarlo [sang the lead] and Dale Frashuer in the early 60’s. This 1969 version lipsyncs an earlier recording…fronted by Leka’s 1969-70 road band STEAM.

I probably went to elementary school in the East End of Bridgeport with some of the originals. 🙂

    “The White House is instructing federal agencies to fire political appointees of President Donald Trump who are looking for job opportunities after Trump’s election defeat to President-elect Joe Biden.
    A senior administration official says presidential personnel director John McEntee, the president’s former personal aide, told White House liaisons at departments that they should terminate any political appointees seeking new work while Trump has refused to accept the electoral results.
    The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.
    Trump’s term ends at noon on Jan. 20. Several thousand political appointees across the government will see their jobs end by that date.” https://fox2now.com/news/politics/white-house-wants-job-seeking-appointees-fired/
    John David McEntee II (born May 9, 1990) is an American political advisor and former athlete who serves as the Director of the White House Presidential Personnel Office in the Trump Administration. McEntee was asked to take on the role of body man and personal aide to the President shortly after Trump was elected. He was unable to obtain a security clearance and was dismissed in March 2018 amid allegations of gambling debts and financial crimes, but immediately took up a position as a senior advisor to Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. McEntee controversially returned to working in the White House, becoming the Director of the Office of Presidential Personnel in February 2020. Controversy increased when Trump assigned McEntee the task of identifying for removal political appointees and career officials who are insufficiently loyal, a task that aligns with the President’s focus on acting against actual and perceived disloyalty.
    Prior to working in the White House Office, McEntee was the starting quarterback for the UConn Huskies football team. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McEntee_(political_aide)

    “The Justice Department’s top election crimes prosecutor resigned Monday in protest after Attorney General William Barr told federal prosecutors that they should examine allegations of voting irregularities before states move to certify results in the coming weeks.
    Richard Pilger, director of the elections crimes branch in the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section, told colleagues in an email that the attorney general was issuing “an important new policy abrogating the forty-year-old Non-Interference Policy for ballot fraud investigations in the period prior to elections becoming certified and uncontested.” Pilger also forwarded the memo to colleagues in his resignation letter.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/09/politics/william-barr-voting-irregularities/index.html

    “With President-elect Joe Biden’s lead in Georgia growing, President Donald Trump took to Twitter Monday night to claim victory in the Peach State.

    “Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue of Georgia demanded the resignation on Monday of Georgia’s secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, a Republican.
    The two senators cited “mismanagement and lack of transparency” as the reason for their demand but did not cite evidence for either.
    Raffensperger called their complaints “laughable” and said President Donald Trump remains on track to lose the state’s electoral votes to Joe Biden.” https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/09/loeffler-perdue-demand-resignation-of-georgia-gop-secretary-of-state-.html

    “Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle are making moves to expand their influence at the Republican National Committee, three GOP sources, including advisers to the President tell CNN. Some sources say they may seek to take over the party structure themselves.
    President Donald Trump’s eldest son and his girlfriend, a Trump campaign fundraiser and former Fox News host, have made it clear to campaign and White House officials they are unhappy with RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who they view as not having done enough to win a close race.
    Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle could seek leadership roles at the RNC to position the committee for a comeback run for the President in 2024, the sources said.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/10/politics/donald-trump-jr-kimberly-guilfoyle-rnc/index.html

    “As president, Donald Trump selectively revealed highly classified information to attack his adversaries, gain political advantage and to impress or intimidate foreign governments, in some cases jeopardizing U.S. intelligence capabilities. As an ex-president, there’s every reason to worry he will do the same, thus posing a unique national security dilemma for the Biden administration, current and former officials and analysts said.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/trump-possible-security-risk/2020/11/09/f19c853e-229e-11eb-952e-0c475972cfc0_story.html
