Kirstjen Nielsen OUT

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen will be leaving her position, and I would like to thank her for her service....

Announced by Twitter... of course.

 

....I am pleased to announce that Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary for @DHSgov. I have confidence that Kevin will do a great job!

     As soon as any of President Trump's appointees have the slightest disagreement with him and give their honest opinion on issues , they are FIRED , unless they havent already resigned.

Must be tough to work for someone who knows it all and has all the answers. How do you gain any knowledge or perspective , when you surround yourself with only "yes people" ?

But does anyone want to praise the President's efforts to control our borders (as is his job) under difficult circumstances?

 

And, how about asking for less bias from the MSM. They are all ranting about her caging children. I guess they forgot the last time they ran this picture and blamed President Trump;

I saw a comment online by someone who said that they had changed their mind about tRump spending the rest of his life in prison - they said that he should spend the rest of his life in a cage under a texas highway interchange - with no tent - and no bed...

 

I find  that I'm in agreement with that...

Speaking as someone who lives in the borderlands, I can tell you MSN is not overstating the problem. I assure you that no one here is praising the way Trump is handling this problem. 

 

I see the the Congressional Republicans are beginning to panic at Trump's chaotic administration style. What do you expect when the most successful thing he ever did was host a reality TV show?

I did say "under difficult circumstances" and that includes impossible requirements of the 9th Circuit, a refusal of the Congressional Republicans to act, and the Dems using this as just one more partisan weapon.

 

Do any of your fellow borderlanders have an idea as to what to do with these caravans of illegals?

 

And how about the MSM once again over and over playing the "thrown in cages" bit again. You think they would have learned from the one I posted above.

No, they do not...the only thing they know how to do is to obstruct any attempt to solve our problems at the border... that is asinine to say it nicely.

Well - it's obvious that the low-life white racist bigot gene has bred true in the trump line of lying scumbags...

"Secretary of Kidnapping quits after being criticized by tRump for not torturing more"

 

If only tRump's Nazi had tortured more of the children (and sold videos of the  torture through "special tRumpian" lines of distribution) - and managed to sell more of the girls into sexual slavery with all of tRump's perverted Epstein-like buddies world-wide, the profits would have overridden any mention of problems in tRump's perverted mind...

Kirstjen Nielsen: just another defection in the trumped-up world of our non-presidential President. The wayward saga of MAGA continues. Bad D.C. actors still walk among us.

You can speak for yourself but not for everyone.

With the crisis on our southern border and the lack of personal to protect it she had a job that was impossible to do.

When we have the media saying that children are being held in cages that is what gets to people...when in fact they are being held in the same holding areas that we used under Obama..remember? I do.

Trump should know that we need to stop the refugees at the source and to do that we need to solve some of the problems down there. Obviously, it is in all our interest to do so. 

 

Trump's approach is like installing ever bigger bathtubs rather than turn off the faucet. 

Esteemed Social Butterfly

Nielsen 'officially' resigned, but I doubt that was the original intent of her meeting with the president.   Her intent anyway; I think Donnie's intentions are clear.  Her days were numbered, I am surprised she lasted as long as she did.

 

How DO you deal with someone who has no clear plan on immigration?  Plan A?  Shut down the government until you get the money to build a wall?  Nah, that didn't work out too well.  Plan B?  Threaten to close the border.  That bluff didn't work out particularly well either.  The president is winging it.  The divisiveness promoted by this president is not going to do a **bleep** thing.  But let's go ahead and cut off aid to the northern triangle and really make it miserable for the people who live there, so they will be even more inclined to stay there.

You're right, no business could survive with this level of turnover ........... or ........... with the level of unfilled positions that are present in trump's administration.

 

The revolving door ............ it never stops. What a scar it puts on a person's resume once they work for trump in his crooked administration.

More Top Homeland Security Officials Set to Leave in Trump Purge  ~ (1 hr ago)

Trump hasn't found the right gaggle of toadies just yet, but he'll keep trying to lower the bar to where only people who actually think he knows what he's doing will be running the Government.

 

So sad his appointments to SCOTUS will not be run off as their incompetence becomes undeniable, as has been the case with most of his other appointments. The very few capable hands he got to work for him all left when they realized what a moron he was.

Trump Demands Homeland Security Secretary Who Will Break the Law

........The law-and-order façade has been crumbling for a long time. But the firing of Kirstjen Nielsen as secretary of DHS truly reveals how little Trump or his party actually care about the law at all.

 

In recent months, Trump has not bothered to conceal his impatience for legal niceties. He has publicly mocked the idea that courts should oversee asylum hearings (“Get rid of judges”), and claimed unilateral authority to spend federal money on border fencing despite being denied authorization by Congress. Reporting on Nielsen’s departure shows that her central disqualification was an unwillingness to violate the law......

http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/04/trump-kirstjen-nielsen-fired-homeland-illegal.html

 

Now we have dt's 4th DHS Secretary....(Obama had 2, each serving four years, Janet Napolitano and Jeh Johnson).

Newly appointed Kevin McAleenan is temporary(?)  I believe his  experience makes him fully aware of the chaos he is entering into.  Whether or not he is able to provide a more sane and positive influence over the ever present madness of dt's willingness to break laws remains to be seen. 

 

McAleenan, 47, has been at U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) since 2001, serving in both the Bush and Obama Administrations before becoming acting head of the department (Commissioner) in January 2017 under Trump......

As head of the CBP, McAleenan’s job is to reduce illegal immigration and smuggling across U.S. foreign borders. He has also been involved in overseeing the design and location scouting for Trump’s proposed border wall. But McAleenan is “not an ideologue or fire breather,” according to a senior official quoted by CNN.

For some reason, Donnie thinks the office of the President of the U.S. is an autocratic position.  Like being the boss on a TV show where you can just say "You're fired!" and all will be well.

 

SURPRISE, Donnie!  You aren't in TV Land anymore.

Will they have to edit the plaque they screwed to the replaced fencing?

 

Or, to save money, will they wait until TRUMP THE CHUMP is incarcerated for tax evasion before they edit the plaque?

No fond feelings or love lost with Nielsen leaving. But...

1. Would really like to hear her real feelings and what she really thinks of trump and was she doing this cruel job because she wanted to or that she was doing it to support trump 

2. A real problem for us is that when a current person resigns or is fired, the person that follows is even worse than their predecessor. Quality people are not available nor want to ruin their careers by working for trump...case in point, look at trump’s picks for the federal reserve board...really at the bottom of the barrel!

Those guys have no clue as to what they are doing.
