Trump Fires Another Obama Loyalist

Posted May 16th, 2020 by Iron Mike

Our President is finally getting around to draining the Swamp!

“This is to advise that I am exercising my power as President to remove from office the Inspector General of the Department of State,  effective 30 days from today.”
Steven Linick – the State Department IG (with 3 degrees from über-liberal Georgetown) will depart Foggy Bottom in 30 days. Notified Friday, Democrats in Congress are already ranting “Retaliation and Cover-Up!” 

“It is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as Inspectors General.  That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General”.

A good and honest IG is a priceless asset to any organization,  – the last refuge of a frustrated soldier being bullied by an unworthy commander,  – and a place to (safely?) report corruption and wrongdoing – and (maybe) still keep your job…

NOTE:   For all the years I was a Soldier,  everybody knew that if an issue could not be resolved in the unit,  – a soldier could always make an IG complaint.  The CAVEAT was that you had to SWEAR to the truth of your complaint, – and if found to be lying, – you could be court-martialed.

But the unworthy and highly political civilian IGs can and often do quickly abuse their powers when they see something THEY don’t like….  They can turn molehills into mountains with a simple twisting of words,….

This was the case of Intelligence Community IG Michael Atkinson, – fired by Trump just 6 weeks ago.

Brace yourselves for HEARINGS in the House – (if the Democrats can summon the courage to return to Washington).

Ranting about the firing now of 4 holdover IGs is NY State Congressman Eliot Lance Engel,  Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.   Engle has been on government payrolls since 1977 (43 years) NY State Assembly (77 – 88) US Congress (89 – current).

Engle got in trouble for taking a TAX CREDIT on his Potomac, Maryland house – for 10 years  – which he could only do if he declared it as his primary residence.

Also ranting was NJ Senator (and lover of underage Dominican girls) Robert Menendez,  – who has been on the Public Payroll since 1986,  – as a mayor, – state rep, – state senator, – congressman, – and US Senator.

Menendez’s corruption trial in New Jersey ended Nov 17th 2017 – with a hung jury.

    Draining the swamp can’t happen fast enough for me…looking forward to more.

    While the swamp is being drained, the swamp is fighting back – no surprise. Left wing AND right wing – they’re both on the same bird, the very one that has been crapping on us for at least fifty years.

    Good for Trump. I’m glad he has finally cleared out enough of the lower-level dreck to start dredging at the higher levels. Fighting will increase. He and his team WILL win.

    Boy how I hope this fink was hand-delivered his dismissal memo, had his security clearance yanked, computer access and passwords blocked, EXTREMELY supervised while he emptied his office of “personal” items, had his access cards and other keys confiscated, and was escorted from the building under armed guard.

    Recent history shows there’s no telling the level of damage possible from Obamaites when they get pissed off, especially given revelations regarding the Russia and impeachment hoaxes, FBI abuse and corruption, and the apparent inability of other highly placed Obamaites to be truthful while under oath.

    Our Republic is under assault by Liberal control freaks!

    Good riddance,,,, but my question is why did it take 3 and a half years to move this turkey out!!!

    I’m with panther 6. Is it taking so long because there are so many or is because we have to tip toe around these libs. If the democrats do get power back in the White House, I shiver to think if we ever get close to a war again.
