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 !!!!!

ALERT ALERT

Breaking: Jury Sides With Sheriff Joe
Smacks Down Establishment GOP’s Lawsuit

A jury has sided in favor of conservative icon, former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, against the lawsuit filed by Austin Flake, the son of GOP establishment Senator Jeff Flake, and Austin’s ex-wife, Logan Brown.

Flake and Brown had filed a lawsuit against the Arizona sheriff for “malicious prosecution” after over a dozen dogs died on their watch at a Gilbert dog kennel.

The jury decided Flake and Brown had failed to provide sufficient evidence to back up their accusations of malicious prosecution by Arpaio, The Associated Press reported via Tucson.com.

Flake and Brown ran the kennel while Brown’s parents were out of town in 2014, the AP reported.

The two were still in college.

Initially, Flake and Brown were charged in the incident, but the charges were dropped at the prosecution’s request. Later, Flake’s in-laws pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after an expert determined that the facility air conditioner failed because it was not properly maintained.

Thus, the owners of the kennel were responsible for the death of the 21 dogs, and they answered for their crimes.

Nonetheless, Flake and Brown reportedly alleged that Arpaio had charged them to gain publicity and deal damage to Senator Flake — an establishment fixture within the GOP.

The two “contended the charges caused them emotional distress, contributed to the demise of their marriage and led the senator’s son to being suspended from college for an honor-code violation,” according to The Associated Press.

Despite the jury’s decision, the U.S. District Judge Neil V. Wake will not issue a final verdict until the defense explains why it didn’t turn over documents that may have benefited the plaintiffs, according to a statement from the plaintiffs’ attorney to The Associated Press.

“The struggle to hold government officials accountable has always required a steep, perilous climb,” the plaintiffs’ attorney said in a Friday statement according to KNPX.

“Although we disagree with the jury’s verdict, we are grateful we had the opportunity to force former Sheriff Arpaio and his subordinates at Maricopa County to account for their indisputably reckless conduct. Near the end of the trial, we discovered that the County failed to turn over documents that might have helped us prove our case,” he continued.

“The Court has ordered the County to explain its failure and indicated that it will not enter a final judgment in the case until a satisfactory explanation is provided. We will access our future options in this fight when the County complies with the Court’s Order.”

Charges that didn’t pan out are an annoyance to those affected — there’s no question of that.

But to claim that those charges — which were dropped — were the reason behind a failed marriage, and that Arpaio needs to pay is completely ridiculous.
