Pentagon Purge: Hagel Forced Out

(New York Times) - Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down under pressure, the first cabinet-level casualty of the collapse of President Obama’s Democratic majority in the Senate and the struggles of his national security team amid an onslaught of global crises.

The president, who is expected to announce Mr. Hagel’s resignation in a Rose Garden appearance on Monday, made the decision to ask his defense secretary — the sole Republican on his national security team — to step down last Friday after a series of meetings over the past two weeks, senior administration officials said.

The officials described Mr. Obama’s decision to remove Mr. Hagel, 68, as a recognition that the threat from the Islamic State would require a different kind of skills than those that Mr. Hagel was brought on to employ. A Republican with military experience who was skeptical about the Iraq war, Mr. Hagel came in to manage the Afghanistan combat withdrawal and the shrinking Pentagon budget in the era of budget sequestration.

But now “the next couple of years will demand a different kind of focus,” one administration official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. He insisted that Mr. Hagel was not fired, saying that the defense secretary initiated discussions about his future two weeks ago with the president, and that the two men mutually agreed that it was time for him to leave...(MORE)

Sheriff Joe: ‘This is Going to Open the Floodgates’

Warns Obama’s new actions will only increase violent illegals on America’s streets

(WND) – In a radio interview set to air Sunday, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, worried President Obama’s recent executive actions on immigration will only increase the number of illegal aliens crossing the southern border, including those who commit violent crimes while in the U.S.

“One thing I’m really concerned [about],” Arpaio said, “this is going to open up more floodgates because everyone over [the border] is going to think, ‘Wait a minute, let’s come on in to the United States, and we’re going to get a free pass.’ So I think we’re going to see more people coming in to our country.”

The sheriff, whose enforcement of immigration laws and criminal laws violated by border crossers has frequently put him at odds with the federal government, has already filed a lawsuit over Obama’s executive plan to curb deportations.
