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

Breaking:  FBI Admits Comey Leaked Memos 
 That Were Classified   Material! 

The FBI turned over the Comey memos to Congress today after missing their deadline earlier in the week.

Congressional leaders threatened to impeach deep state leaders if they continued to stall on the memos.

Fired FBI Chief James Comey wrote about the memos in his book and leaked the documents to reporters last year. Congress has not yet had a chance to look at the memos — Until tonight.

AND—– THE MEMOS ARE CLASSIFIED!

Meaning Fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESS.

From the report:

From the DOJ to Congress:

Therefore, pursuant to your request, we are providing the requested memoranda in both the redacted and unredacted formats for your convenience. Consistent with your request, we are providing an unclassified version of the documents redacted to remove any classified information.

The DOJ wrote Congressional leaders this evening.

Hannity: Good news for Trump, crushing blows for the left

GOP Congressional Leaders Nunes, Gowdy And Goodlatte Release Statement On Comey Memos

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued a statement on the memos later tonight.

The House chairmen note that the memos prove that fired Director Comey never felt obstructed or threatened from his relationship with the president.

And… former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel.

The Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence published the statement tonight:

Today House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued the following statement:

“We have long argued former Director Comey’s self-styled memos should be in the public domain, subject to any classification redactions. These memos are significant for both what is in them and what is not.

Former Director Comey’s memos show the President made clear he wanted allegations of collusion, coordination, and conspiracy between his campaign and Russia fully investigated. The memos also made clear the ‘cloud’ President Trump wanted lifted was not the Russian interference in the 2016 election cloud, rather it was the salacious, unsubstantiated allegations related to personal conduct leveled in the dossier.

The memos also show former Director Comey never wrote that he felt obstructed or threatened. While former Director Comey went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.

The memos also make certain what has become increasingly clear of late: former Director Comey has at least two different standards in his interactions with others. He chose not to memorialize conversations with President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, Secretary Clinton, Andrew McCabe or others, but he immediately began to memorialize conversations with President Trump. It is significant former Director Comey made no effort to memorialize conversations with former Attorney General Lynch despite concerns apparently significant enough to warrant his unprecedented appropriation of the charging decision away from her and the Department of Justice in July of 2016.

These memos also lay bare the notion that former Director Comey is not motivated by animus. He was willing to work for someone he deemed morally unsuited for office, capable of lying, requiring of personal loyalty, worthy of impeachment, and sharing the traits of a mob boss. Former Director Comey was willing to overlook all of the aforementioned characteristics in order to keep his job. In his eyes, the real crime was his own firing.

The memos show Comey was blind to biases within the FBI and had terrible judgment with respect to his deputy Andrew McCabe. On multiple occasions he, in his own words, defended the character of McCabe after President Trump questioned McCabe.

Finally, former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel, yet he took no steps to spur the appointment of Special Counsel when he had significant concerns about the objectivity of the Department of Justice under Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

As we have consistently said, rather than making a criminal case for obstruction or interference with an ongoing investigation, these memos would be Defense Exhibit A should such a charge be made.”
