NSC chief slashing Obama's
'bloated' staff to create efficient,
tight-lipped White House operation

The White House National Security Council staff is being downsized sharply in a bid to improve efficiency within the policy coordinating body by consolidating positions and cutting staff. A second, unspoken thrust of the overhaul is a hoped-for end to what many critics see as a string of politically damaging, unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information. Leaks of President Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders and other damaging disclosures likely originated with anti-Trump officials in the White House who stayed over from the Obama administration, according to several current and former White House officials. White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien is leading the NSC reform effort.

It's about time. This should have started and completed January 20, 2017 (between 12 noon through 1pm). Never keep anyone from the Obama administration because these people are dangerous.

LONG overdue. It acted as a 5th column. "“I just don’t think that we need the numbers of people ...,” Mr. O’Brien said." Too many cooks, especially BAD cooks, spoil the broth. Arrogant bureaucrats are always vying for attention for their own beliefs and undercutting other people and policies. All the "chaos" claimed in Trump's White House comes from battles with these layers of bureaucrats. As O'Brian says, they are not needed. They also cost a LOT of money (330 x $100K =$33M) and confuse intended actions. Now, if we could only engineer a 3/4 force reduction of government in general we might have a functional government and might balance the budget.

""Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican and former chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said this year that he sent the Justice Department eight criminal referrals related to the leaks, including those related to Mr. Trump’s conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia."" Criminal referrals yet all we got was crickets. I am not sure what is necessary to clean up the DOJ but the present policies are not working. True Americans are getting more and more fed up and hopefully change will come.

For those folks filled with impatience, and why didn't it happen sooner, could be that Trump finally has wrested control of this vital agency away from Deep State swampers. This is one way to tell when Trump has finally achieved control of a vital agency. Sounds like he has done it. Now to fire the bloat and get to work. Nothing is going to frustrate Obama and his minions than having another source closed down to their access. Should be fun. Trump might need to make some cabinet secretary changes, for some of them are just not getting the job done like he promised. The biggest one is DeVos and the DoE which should be cut back to nothing right now. Far as I can tell, she is business as usual.

Apparently a criminal referral is just : a memo that one is about to be scolded. Everyone that was appointed by ozero, served under him, reported to him, or was in a personal communication with him should be fired. And about half of them belong in prison. Beginning with ValJar, the Iranian Mata Houri.

Better late than never. although the lesson should have been learned from George W.

I think Trump would be wise to bring Steve Bannon back into the White House. He is definitely on Trump's side and he's not afraid to get in someone's face if he thinks they are sticking their nose where it doesn't belong. I think if Trump had put Bannon in charge of weeding out the Obama Holdovers, he would have done it in the first year! Instead, he listened to Ivanka and Jarrod and fired Bannon. Bad move! He needs people like Bannon to have his Back!

Anything created by, hired by, implemented by or suggested by Barack Obama should be disbanded. That includes the Mooch lunch program that actually created hunger. The two drug-using, party-going and attention-getting sullen sisters should be followed and photographed and every detail made public, just as they are doing with Donald Trump's family. Entire agencies were corrupted by the illegal kenyan and have been sucking up our tax money while working against Americans. Erase it all.

They are not being fired merely being reassigned to the department they came from. Rest assured there will be no money saved and no jobs lost--this is the way of the government. The Obama plants will still be able to do their dirty work but only at a lower level.

During President Nixon's first term, Henry Kissinger was his National Security Adviser. At the beginning of President Nixon's second term, he asked Kissinger to accept the position of Secretary of State. Kissinger accepted, but with one condition - that he be allowed to retain his position of National Security Adviser. President Nixon agreed. Kissinger knew what he was doing - he was a smart man. So was Nixon.

Wow, this just warms the cockles of my heart! FTA: "However, it was during the Obama administration that the NSC was transformed into a major policymaking agency seeking to DUPLICATE the functions of the State and Defense departments within the White House." Golly, what could possibly go wrong?!? We'll never know how much sooner these kinds of actions might have taken place, had not Michael Flynn been so unceremoniously dumped from his brief NSA role! There was a heck of a lot of unnecessary and damaging turmoil during that period, thanks to our donkey friends.

Voter suppression, Iowa style 5 replies

Here’s a safe prediction for 2020. The Iowa Democratic caucuses will dominate the news at the end of January and beginning of February. My conservative cousin formerly from New York sees the caucuses as a “glaring example of voter suppression totally ignored by the mainstream media because it provides a boost to left wing Democrats.”He writes: The winner of the Iowa caucus has become the Democratic nominee in every 21st century election. Yet, turnout is sparse; only 15.7% of registered Democrats showed up for the 2016 caucus and not many more are expected this year. It is easy to understand why. To participate, voters must drive to a caucus site at night
The Mythology of Biden as a Moderate 3 replies
Posted by MissMolly 1/2/2020 4:40:48 AM Post Reply
The other day Joe Biden claimed that he would consider a Republican running mate. Right. The chances of that happening are nil, given the hardcore leftist composition of the Democratic Party. But Biden likes to feed the mythology that he is still a moderate. The Trump campaign can’t let him get away with that lie. They should paint him early and often as a liberal Democrat who long ago lost touch with the Rust Belt. This is, after all, a pol who giddily whispered in Barack Obama’s ear that a massive government takeover of health care “was a big f—ing deal,” and pushed a reluctant Obama to embrace gay marriage.

Crime in Progress is, inadvertently, the cruelest book ever written about the American media. Its authors, Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch, are the two former Wall Street Journal reporters who founded the DC-based consultancy Fusion GPS. In 2016, the Hillary Clinton campaign paid them to use their former media colleagues to push a conspiracy theory smearing her Republican opponent, Donald Trump. The crime is still in progress. To help top-notch journalists market the fantasy that one of the world’s most familiar faces was a secret Russian spy, Fusion GPS co-ordinated with the FBI to forge a series of ‘intelligence reports’.

What Does ‘Auld Lang Syne’ Mean? 10 replies

Every year, around the world, people bring in the New Year with a rendition of “Auld Lang Syne.” This Scottish song has long been attributed to Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns (1759–1796). And yet, “Burns wasn’t the sole author,” according to Robert Crawford, Burns’s esteemed biographer (and my former professor at the University of St Andrews). “He was a co-author.” Literally, “auld lang syne” means literally “old long since,” or essentially “for old time’s sake.” Burns penned the work in 1788, but it was not printed until after his death in 1796. He had claimed that he took inspiration “from an old man’s singing,”

Orthodox Jews around the country — and specifically in the tri-state area — were still reeling from the shooting at a kosher deli earlier this month when we gathered with our families to celebrate the holiday of Chanukah. But that air of tranquility was shattered by a string of nearly a dozen anti-Semitic attacks over the holiday, the most severe of which was a mass stabbing at a rabbi’s home upstate as he lit his menorah. The stabbing attack succeeded in bringing to the fore what we visibly Orthodox Jews have known for quite some time: There’s a growing epidemic of anti-Semitism in this country, specifically targeting Orthodox Jews,
