Trump Advisers Call For A 'Purge' Of Obama Appointees

Image result for trump v obamaEarlier this week, in an appearance on Fox News, Trump confirmed his beliefs that Obama is behind the litany of leaks that have plagued his administration over the past couple of months.

"No, I think he [Obama] is behind it, because his people are certainly behind it. I also think it is politics, that's the way it is."

And while the source of the leaks may be easy to deduce, the appropriate response is not so easy to implement.  That said, there is a growing chorus of advisers to the President who are urging him to purge the government of former Obama political appointees and quickly install more people who are loyal to him.

Newt Gingrich is among those calling for such a purge...per Politico:

"His playbook should be to get rid of the Obama appointees immediately," said Newt Gingrich, a top surrogate. "There are an amazing number of decisions that are being made by appointees that are totally opposed to Trump and everything he stands for. Who do you think those people are responding to?"

Gingrich added: "Ninety-five percent of the bureaucrats are against him."

Meanwhile, Gingrinch offered a backhanded compliment to Schumer, saying "I didn't get it early on. This is not about slowing down the Cabinet. This is about keeping working control of the government for Obama.  It's actually very shrewd on Schumer's part."

Gingrich said he blamed Sen. Chuck Schumer for slow-walking the nominees, though Schumer's office notes that many of the picks were not properly vetted: At least three have already dropped out. The Office of Government Ethics remains overwhelmed with applications now, "but they are beginning to catch up," one person involved in the nominations said. At many agencies, no top positions are filled, which means the layers of political appointees that report to them haven't been picked, either.

"I didn't get it early on. This is not about slowing down the Cabinet. This is about keeping working control of the government for Obama," Gingrich said. "It's actually very shrewd on Schumer's part. Trump is not going to have control of the government until at least June."

Roger Stone also chimed in on the debate saying the Trump administration should have cut ties with Obama's staff "a long time ago, a long, long time ago."

You can not eliminate evil by moving evil from one place to another.  Evil must be eliminated.

I've been hashing this about with a lot of deplorable friends. We think that by sabotaging Trump, it could be considered treasonous. My gut feel is as soon as maybe a hundred or so of these kiss-ass obama a**holes are arrested, and promised a room with "Monk", they will roll over on anybody. And our second thought is, why haven't they begun to charge, try, and convict zero of treason. This should be done concurrently with charging the whole killary entourage with treason, (I think the fact they were all one big greedy family means they can be charged as accessories to her treason as accessories before, during and after the fact) All of the groups who are anarchal in form, fit, and function should be entitled terrorists (including black lives matter - just not on the roads we're blocking but anywhere. We're tired of being run over). Jail a bunch of these yo-yos and watch the macho leaders of these motley anarchist wanna-bes begin to whine because they're tired of being passed around on cell block H (These cons don't use flavored lube of any kind or crisco.).his means the tough guy wanna-be masked women who wish they had a set, will find out what fun it is to be on a female unit. So, if you're a terrorist make it a mandatory 5 year (no good conduct outs) hard time. And here's the best news yet!! All of the incarcerees will be jailed in one of Sheriff Joe's prison camps. these prison camps are self-sustaining, and don't cost the taxpayer anything except for pink underwarer You go Joe!! And just for Ashley Judd, we thought she should be taken to the Mayo Clinic and given a permanent set. But before that happens she's going on a world tour pulling trains for anybody and everbody - even kids! so the word processor is f**ked up. don't mind the mis-spellings or choppy syntax. Good Luck All! MAGA

Newt is right, a great purge has to happen and the sooner the better.....Lets start with the VA....

Fire every beurocrat that was working before January 20.

Yes, purge ALL Obamamites from the government and the United States!

Trump  TURN THE DOGS OF THE FBI AND DOJ LOOSE !!!!!!!!!!!!

Well Barry if you are gonna play your hand you better do it quick cause its going down soon

Totally agree that is why the Dems are dragging their clodhoppers to approve President Trump's appointees. Once that's done, they're totally irrelevant. This way they are still controlling the conversation and the White House preventing PRESIDENT Trump from moving his agenda to fruition, all the while doing anything they can to destroy this administration.

As for firing, go for it! Even if it brings the government to a grinding halt. Fire every single OWEbama appointee. Get them out of any and all government positions.

Yes ,Yes , Yes, what have we been saying for the last month i really hope Donald listens to them  and i believe he needs not just purge Obama's appointees, But at least half of Bush appointees as well . If their are some that are vested  and can't be fired then create  positions in some God for saken dislite remote corner of the earth and transfer them their

They cannot be trusted, drain the swamp and get rid of these traitors once and for all.

"Start with OPM (Office of Personnel Management).  It SHOULD be (but they've probably covered it up already) a simple matter of reviewing OPM records of ALL hires in the past 8-9 years.  Which were "appointees" that have burrowed into permanent positions.  Eliminate them out of hand.  That includes Obozo's mother-in-law who was a live-in babysitter for her own grandkids and is now supposedly receiving  a $160K/year "retirement"!!  8 years?? Retirement??

Back to the point.  OPM should be subpoenaed and investigated by a REAL FBI committee to produce all those records and every one of those  "appointee now permanent" people should be dismissed.  Their positions were not in existence before Obozo, and they certainly are not required now.  That includes any who might have been "hired" into the FBI, Border Patrol, NSA, CIA, or any other alphabet agency.

A soldier has to put in 20 years to get a "retirement".  Those "20 years" are the equivalent of SIXTY years as they are on call/on duty 24/7/365, even while on "vacation".  They start out as Privates at below minimum wage (flipping hamburgers isn't a military duty) and undergo extensive training in how to stay alive and ensure the lives of others.  And may God bless them, Law Enforcement Officers, EMS, Firefighters et al.!

JMHO

Why hasn't it been done already?  !!!!!!!!  Tired of talk get ur done!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
