    The Purge: Homeland Security

    Trump is removing US Secret Service director

    (CNN)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.
    But wait, there's more.

    "There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation's second-largest national security agency," one senior administration official says.

    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.

    The President in recent weeks empowered Stephen Miller to lead the administration's border policies "and he's executing his plan" with what amounts to a wholesale decapitation or the Department of Homeland Security leadership, the official says.
    NHS director Kirstjen Nielsen was willing to go to great lengths and take a lot of heat in order to try and deliver on Trump's unrealistic agenda. What she wasn't willing to do was break the law. And so she had to go. And now Miller is decapitating the department. This is bound to get much uglier.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    My eyes just rolled so hard that it affected the earth's rotation.
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    Try posting a Pepe meme or something else to drive home your non-point.

    We keep hearing from the smarter-than-thous here that these positions that are going unfilled are proving that they are unnecessary positions, period. So, how long until the right wingnut faction decides to get rid of Homeland Security? Oh, that's right. They won't, because they love the power and control that the agency wields over "the other".
    You can't spell "hatred" without "red hat".

    The junior civil servant worker-bees will keep going no mater what. No matter who is in office.

    I'm in favor of getting rid of Homeland Security. Also DEA. Roll DHEW back together and cut down on redundancy there. Put a leash on the FBI.
    No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. This offer VALID in 35 34 33 32 31 26 20 17 15 14 13 ALL 50 states.

    The new 13 original states to stand up for freedom: CA, CT, IA, MA, DE, MN, NH, NY, RI, VT, ME, MD, NJ (plus DC).

    Yeah, sure. Because that's what I do here: just post irrelevant memes in response to threads.

    Go and find the numerous times that I have posted a Pepe meme. Go ahead.

    We do? I'm sure you can cite the numerous times in which this has occurred. Go do it.

    I was never in favor of forming DHS in the first place, and have long said that it's a wasteful bureaucracy. If we got rid of it, then all of its functions would simply return to where they were before. There would be absolutely no harm in that.


    What is it that you're pissing, moaning, and lying about again?

    Trump may have hit a snag in his second-order assholification of the department.

    Republicans ready to quash Cuccinelli

    Ken Cuccinelli has spent years attacking Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans. Now, itís time for payback.

    President Donald Trump wants Cuccinelli, who most recently led the anti-establishment Senate Conservatives Fund, to be director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. But there may be nobody in Washington whom McConnell and his allies would take more pleasure in defeating, and the bottom line is Cuccinelli has little chance of getting approved for the job, Republican senators said.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    Trump.

    It's all he has left.
    "What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."

    Time will tell.
