Donald Trump: I Should Have
Fired Jim Mattis Sooner

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 11/24/2020 12:29:01 PM

President Donald Trump disparaged his former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Tuesday after he voiced his opposition to the president’s foreign policy.“That says it all about Mattis,” Trump said, sharing a story highlighting the former general’s criticism of President Trump’s “America First” agenda. “Obama fired him. I should have fired him sooner.” (Tweets) Mattis teamed up with three other authors for a co-bylined essay in Foreign Affairs magazine denouncing Trump’s agenda.“In practice, ‘America first’ has meant ‘America alone,'” they wrote. “That has damaged the country’s ability to address problems before they reach U.S. territory and has thus compounded the danger emergent threats pose.”

Now we know the new administration will be America will resume to leading from behind. The Cabinet picks seem to be illustrating to people around the world, they can resume taking advantage of America. It will be known quickly how hard it will be for small businesses to regain a footing, and the administration will use COVID as the excuse, rationalization or justification instead of the new rules, regulations and taxes they impose.

I think Trump would have been better served, if they had pulled out the registered voters for the GOP, and done a random drawing for the positions needed. When you're working from a poolof Washington insiders, any choice seems to bea bad one.

Trump's biggest blunder, like W. Bush, was his failure to immediately remove every single Obamunist from the ranks of appointed positions. The transition period is the opportunity to remove every single US attorney, for example. There is no reason to keep ANY hangers-on from the previous administration. They should be fired at once, regardless of the consequences. He also should have dramatically cut personnel levels across the board. FUture Presidents must understand the critical need for a massive purge. His second biggest mistake was his hiring. His staffing was riddled with moles, leakers, and saboteurs, like Bush's. His top hires were also highly suspect, ambitious (Kelly), weak, cowardly (Sessions) or downright treasonous (Wray).

President Trump reiterated his victory in this year’s election amid evidence of potential voter fraud. Speaking via phone during Pennsylvania’s state Senate hearings Wednesday, the President stressed that he won Pennsylvania and other key states by wide margins. He also highlighted the reports on ballot dumps, phony mail-in ballots and electronic manipulation of votes as the most prominent examples of fraud. President Trump added ‘Dominion Voting Systems’ is complicit in altering hundreds-of-thousands of votes to steal the election for the Democrats.

Psst, an occasionally reliable source tells me Joe Biden has settled on a motto for his administration. It’s going to be “The Way We Were.”Just before he announced the first members of his team, the next president was heard singing in his Delaware basement,“Memories light the corners of my mind.“Misty water-colored memories of the way we were.”My source claims Biden wanted Perry Como to sing the song at the inauguration. Informed that Como died nearly 20 years ago, Biden agreed to let a fresh face, Barbra Streisand, give it a try.The next president turned 78 last Friday and his first selections reveal he’s got a bad case of nostalgia.
