1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: Kirstjen Nielsen’s monstrous legacy is now set in stone

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Incompetence is an inescapable feature of Trumpland. For instance, when Kirstjen Nielsen said at the start of the fourth paragraph of her resignation letter, “I can say with confidence our homeland is safer today than when I joined the administration,” I’m certain she didn’t mean to say what she actually said. What she actually said was that America is safer now that she’s gone, and was in deep peril the minute she joined. She didn’t mean that of course. In fact she meant to say the precise opposite. After all, incompetence isn’t the only inescapable feature of Trumpland. Hubris is another. Whatever she meant, what she wound up saying was certainly true.


There are children today who are deeply and irreversibly traumatized, permanently separated from their parents and, sadly, dead, all thanks to Kirstjen Nielsen and no one else. That she was “only following orders” didn’t work at Nuremberg and it won’t work here. That she was genuinely proud of her “work” at Homeland I do not doubt.



It disgusts me to think that if every American was forced to read the foregoing paragraph, fully a third would breathe a sigh of relief to learn that the children I allude to above are brown, and many don’t speak English. It disgusts me on a level I’m having a difficult time enduring as I type this. These days I’m learning something I didn’t suspect then, that huge swaths of humanity are evil.



What else is sickening is it all could have been stopped had Kirstjen Nielsen stopped it. She could have implemented procedures at the border that would have kept families together. The software necessary to catalog individuals is cheap and easy to come by. Procedures can be taught. Temporary structures can be built. A few dozen foreign language speakers can be hired. Psychologists and experts on human behavior can be employed to help weed out the minority who have come with larceny in their hearts and lies on their lips. We have the technology. Of course she would have had to defy Trump in order to do all that. But Trump is a fool who is easy to fool. Nielsen is an educated person, so she could have fooled him. She chose not to even try. She did what evil does – nothing.


When California Congresswoman Nanette Barragán told Mrs Nielsen bluntly, “either you are lying to this committee, or you don’t know what’s happening at the border,” she was half right. Kirstjen Nielsen was both lying to the committee and she also didn’t know what was happening at the border. Not because she couldn’t have known but because she didn’t care. They were children, to be sure, but they were brown children. And she knew, with a confidence that may actually turn out to be not misplaced, that she will never have to answer for her crimes for precisely that reason.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (196 sites): Palmer Report: The real reason Donald Trump just fired the head of the Secret Service

  •  
  •  
  •

Donald Trump, whose faltering mental and cognitive competence is increasingly on display every time he opens his mouth these days, is suddenly firing nearly the entire leadership at the Department of Homeland Security. So is this merely a broad and pointless fit of rage on the part of a man who’s falling apart, or is there something more calculated going on here?

A few months into his presidency, Donald Trump abruptly fired dozens of U.S. Attorneys across the nation, after having already signaled that he was planning to keep them all. By the time the smoke cleared, it had become obvious that all the carnage was merely an excuse for Trump to get rid of Preet Bharara, who at the time was the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. The SDNY had federal jurisdiction over New York City, where Trump lived and ran his businesses, and Trump wanted Bharara out of there before he could expose any of Trump’s crimes.


Now it’s fair to wonder if we’re in a similar situation. First Donald Trump canned his own ICE Director nominee last week, saying he wanted someone “tougher,” which made no sense considering he’d just finished handpicking the guy. Then he pushed Homeland Security Director Kirstjen Nielsen out the door last night. Then today he announced that he was getting rid of Nielsen’s top deputy. Now he’s getting rid of the Secret Service Director for no apparent reason. It’s that last one that stands out.



The leaders of DHS and ICE are supposed to carry out the president’s political agenda, so it would make sense for the president to replace these people if his agenda changes, or if they’re unwilling to continue carrying it out. But there’s no evidence that this even necessarily happened. And now Trump is forcing out the head of the Secret Service, a distinctly nonpartisan agency whose operations are entirely separate from the president’s agenda. The only legitimate basis for firing the Secret Service Director would be due to personal scandal or professional incompetence, and there’s no evidence of any such thing. By all accounts, the Secret Service is doing as strong of a job as ever.



Instead the only thing that stands out is that last week a Chinese operative managed to get into Mar-a-Lago with devices containing malicious malware, after Donald Trump’s private security let her in. The Secret Service then caught her in the act and arrested her. By all indications, the Secret Service handled this situation smartly and correctly. Yet now Trump is suddenly firing the head of the Secret Service.


This raises all kinds of questions. Is Donald Trump firing the head of the Secret Service because he’s upset that they caught the Chinese operative who was trying to do something clandestine at his home? If so, does this mean Trump is on the side of the Chinese operative? And did Trump fire all these other DHS leaders first, just to make it look like he was only firing the Secret Service Director as part of his DHS housecleaning? After all, we’ve already seen Trump fire huge amounts of people just to remove the one guy he feared might expose his crimes and/or foreign allegiances. The question is whether Trump is doing it again.

For the treasury secretary to seek to decide whether to pass on the president’s tax return to Congress would be inappropriate and probably illegal.
