Trump resolves his ignorance of security, intelligence, by firing folks trying to educate him

❝ United States Secret Service director Randolph “Tex” Alles is being removed from his position, multiple administration officials tell CNN.

President Donald Trump instructed his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to fire Alles. Alles remains in his position as of now but has been asked to leave…

❝ Secret Service officials have been caught by surprise with the news and are only finding out through CNN…

❝ United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel’s John Mitnick are expected to be gone soon, and the White House is eyeing others to be removed.

If American voters recover enough common sense to toss this dolt out onto the scrap heap of stupid in 2020 – at least there will be lots of job openings for folks intersting in rebuilding a somewhat modern administration. Best time for fixing stuff is after a disaster and the Fake President surely has made that point.

Nielsen resigns as Homeland Security head – NO LOSS, just a symptom of White House incompetence


Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

❝ Kirstjen Nielsen, the homeland security secretary who has been the public face of some of the Trump administration’s most contentious policies, has resigned…

According to CBS News, which first reported the news of Nielsen’s impending resignation, her departure is yet another victory for Stephen Miller, the far-right senior adviser in the White House who has consistently steered the president in a hardline direction on immigration…

❝ Nielsen had a very rough ride as the fall guy for Trump’s hardline immigration policy. But given the controversial policies that she consistently championed, there were few expressions of sorrow for her on Sunday night.

A former DHS senior official, Juliette Kayyem, tweeted: “Nielsen is without an agency, and Administration – and public sympathy.”

One of the primary creeps who designed family separations as part of Border Patrol procedure Nielsen deserves little more than contempt. Her only beef with our fake president is that she feels his inhumane and bigoted policies can be made “legal” and that’s what she preferred to cover her participation.

While the body count rises, Trump disbands domestic terror unit

❝ The Department of Homeland Security has disbanded a group of intelligence analysts who focused on domestic terrorism, The Daily Beast has learned. Numerous current and former DHS officials say they find the development concerning, as the threat of homegrown terrorism—including white supremacist terrorism—is growing.

❝ In the wake of this move, officials said the number of analytic reports produced by DHS about domestic terrorism, including the threat from white supremacists, has dropped significantly. People in and close to the department said this has generated significant concern at headquarters…

❝ The group in question was a branch of analysts in DHS’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A). They focused on the threat from homegrown violent extremists and domestic terrorists. The analysts there shared information with state and local law enforcement to help them protect their communities from these threats.

The Fake President doesn’t care a jot about white supremacists murdering Americans or anyone else in their demented career to end democracy.

Fake President’s hate speech on Wind Power is “Idiotic” says Iowa GOP Senator

❝ Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley — a champion of the wind energy tax credit — said President Donald Trump’s comments that wind turbines cause cancer were “idiotic” in a call with reporters Wednesday.

“I’m told that the White House respects my views on a lot of issues,” Grassley said. “(Trump’s) comments on wind energy — not only as a president but when he was a candidate — were, first of all, idiotic, and it didn’t show much respect for Chuck Grassley as the grandfather of the wind energy tax credit.”

❝ Speaking at a Republican fundraiser Tuesday night, Trump discussed wind turbines and energy policy.

“If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value,” he said. “And they say the noise causes cancer. You tell me that one, okay?”

There is no evidence showing the sound from wind turbines causes cancer…

Idiotic? Where would you expect to hear this crap but from the village idiot in the White House.
