Obama Appointees Preventing Mattis From Rebuilding The Military, Says Armed Services Chair

Holdovers from the Obama administration in the Pentagon are hampering efforts to fix the military’s major readiness problem, leaving Secretary of Defense James Mattis alone in his efforts to properly equip U.S. forces, according to the chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services.

“I am concerned that … to fix these problems [it] is going to take a lot more money, and yet a lot of the folks who are coming up with the budget to fix them are the same people who have been fighting every step of the way against our efforts to fix these problems,” said Chairman Mac Thornberry during a Capitol Hill press gaggle Thursday.

Thornberry noted that Mattis is “alone” in his attempts to alleviate the readiness problem at the Pentagon. He added that there are some people, including “political appointees and others from the Obama administration,” who have been “trying to deny there was a problem.”

The Vice Joint Chiefs of Staff warned the armed services committee last week that the lack of military readiness across all branches was putting the military’s capabilities at risk. Their reports revealed, among other substantial problems, only three of 58 Army brigade combat teams are ready for combat, while fewer than half of the Air Force’s aging aircraft fleet is ready to fight.

   LET'S HASTEN OBAMA'S APPOINTEES DEPARTURE !!!!!!

Does anyone here still doubt that BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA and his cronies, which he has plugged in all over this governmental structure, ARE ENEMIES OF THE UNITED STATES,  THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE REBUILDING OF AMERICAN MILITARY POWER?  These people are TRAITORS and must be treated as such if we are to survive as a strong independent nation. 

Duuuuhhhh. If not, then where has everyone been for the last 10 years ? 

Vacation?

Playin golf?

===========================================

A Nobody's 7 Steps to "Peace and Tranquility for All" (or at least on the North American Continent)

===========================================

STEP ONE: CLEAN EM OUT

STEP TWO: RE-ESTABLISH THE RULE OF LAW AS IS CURRENTLY STATED IN OUR CODES, UTILIZING ALL DEPTS OF GOVT (and i dont mean witchhunts like the traitors did, but logical, ethical, legal investigations of THEIR illegality)

STEP THREE:  COMPLETE FULL, OFFICIAL FEDERAL ACROSS ALL 50 STATES REVIEW AND RECOUNT OF THIS PAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION VOTES. WEED OUT all ILLEGAL VOTES. ( we will be truly amazed at what we find). PROSECUTE ALL ILLEGALITY FOUND.

STEP FOUR: BEGIN PROSECUTING MEDIA THAT BREAKS US LAWS CURRENTLY ON THE BOOKS (TREASON, SEDITION, INCITING OF CIVIL UNREST/VIOLENCE/PROPERTY DAMAGE), ALL THE TIME ENSURING DUE PROCESS AND CONSTITUTIONALITY. This one is important and the lynchpin of ALL the current bullshit. Break this and the current DemoUNCommieNazi humpty dumpty has some major, major issues.

STEP FIVE: PROSECUTE TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW ALL LAWBREAKERS FROM THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION AND THE SUBSEQUENT PRESIDENTIAL BID

STEP SIX: CLEAN OUT THE UNIVERSITIES/local school districts OF THE ANTI-AMERICAN/

PRO NON/UNAMERICAN  ACTIVISTS/PROPAGANDISTS/INDOCTRINATORS

THAT ARE CHURNING OUT THE WALKING DEAD TO DO THEIR BIDDING.

STEP SEVEN: HAVE A NATIONAL COVENTION ON RACE WITH THE PARTICIPANTS SELECTED AND PROPORTIONED TO THE TRUE DEMOGRAPHIC MAKEUP OF THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT, AND LETS HAVE A TRUE, NO HOLDS BARRED, CIVIL HUMAN CONVERSATION BASED SOLELY ON TRUE STATISTICAL FACTS AND TRUE  U.S AND WORLD HISTORY and not the bullshit being shoved down our throats by the traitors for decades.

If we can move foward from that with a TRUE acceptance of the FACTS and U.S and World History, that's only 7 steps to a true peaceful, prosperous future for American citizens.

If not, then millions will die in the coming decades.

MILLIONS.

Plain and Simple.

THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS TRUE WORLD HISTORY.

Drain the swamp....the fragments of the last horrible nightmare of a regime must be removed

Draining the swamp means that the political appointees of the past administration should be gleaned from the employment lists as one of the first things to be done.  I don't care how good they are, or how much clout they may have, there is always someone else, with loyalty to their employer who will fill the slot with loyalty to the Trump administration.  Slowly, the leaks will stop and governing can begin.

This is politics 101 and if Trump can't figure it out, then we have a bigger mess on our hands than we ever thought.  If it is a Union problem, in getting the swamp drained, kill the Union.  Trump surely has experience there...use it!

Reagan did.  Worked well.

FIRE THEM

OK, who hid the broom? Who turned off the swamp pump, let's get-er done! o is out of the white house now move all his minions out as well!

These people keep plugging up the intake on the swamp pump.  Gotta get the trash out before trying to drain the swamp.

Donald needs to fire every one of them from the at least  the last two regimes Obozo and Bumbling Bush !!.

 Whatever we "DO NOT DO" is let that BOZO "HENRY KISSINGER" even NEAR the TRUMP ADMINISTRATION !!!!!!!  

UNLESS OF COURSE HE IS CALLED BEFORE A FIRING SQUAD !!!!!

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
