Another Chumph Appointee Bites the Dust

Yet another Chumph bigot appointee gets caught…

Not only is the Chumph incompetent, but his crew of white-wing racists and bigots are incompetent.

Trump appointee Carl Higbie out after audio surfaces of him accusing the ‘black race’ of ‘lax morality’

Carl Higbie, Donald Trump’s pick as chief of external affairs at the Corporation for National and Community Service, resigned Thursday after CNN reported he made a slew of racist, sexist and xenophobic statements.

Higbie, a staunch Trump supporter, made the comments as host of the internet radio program “Sound of Freedom.” During one December 2013 show, Higbie accused “the black race” of “lax morality.”

“Only one person was actually cordial to me,” Higbie said, as CNN’s KFile reports. “Every other black person was rude. They wanted me to either load the wood, completely split it for them or some sort of you know assistance in labor. Now, mind you the ad was for free firewood, come take it all you want. And I believe that this translates directly into the culture that is breeding this welfare and the high percentage of people on welfare in the black race. It’s a lax of morality.”

On his radio show, Higbie also disparaged Muslims, insisting he doesn’t like people who practice the religion “because their ideology sucks.”

“Go back to your Muslim sh*thole and go crap in your hands and bang little boys on Thursday nights,” Higbie said. “I just don’t like Muslim people. People always rip me a new one for that. Carl, you’re racist, you can’t, you’re sexist. I’m like Jesus Christ. I just don’t like Muslim people because their ideology sucks.”

He similarly targeted female Democratic leaders, soldiers suffering from PTSD and gay people and one advocated for shooting undocumented immigrations.

In a statement, CNCS spokesperson Samantha Jo Garfield said Higbie has stepped down from his position with the department.

“Effective immediately, Carl Higbie has resigned as Chief of External Affairs at CNCS,” she said.

Yet Another Chumph Appointee

Wow! The list of Chumph appointees being “escorted” or frogmarched out of federal facilities just keeps growing!

Anti-birth control official who led Title X departs HHS

Teresa Manning, the controversial official in charge of the Title X federal family planning program, was escorted from HHS premises on Friday.

Two sources with knowledge of Manning’s departure tell POLITICO that she was fired by HHS. An HHS spokesperson disputed that account, saying that Manning resigned.

“HHS is very grateful for her service,” the spokesperson said. “Her departure after resignation was not unusual in any way.”

Manning could not be reached for comment.

Manning, who previously worked for anti-abortion groups including the Family Research Council and National Right to Life, had been serving as deputy assistant secretary for HHS’ Office of Population Affairs. In that role, she was responsible for helping set national policy around family planning, contraception and teen pregnancy — a development that alarmed abortion-rights groups worried about Manning’s history of statements and actions opposing birth control and abortion.

Manning stated in a 2003 public radio interview that “contraception doesn’t work.” She also has separately suggested a link between abortion and breast cancer, which has not been proven, and helped craft state legislation to limit access to abortion.

Manning’s name was removed from OPA’s leadership page on Friday night. She had been tapped in May 2017 to lead the office, which has been criticized by state officials in recent months. OPA’s process to allow states to apply for family-planning grants is running more than two months behind schedule.

The New Jim Crow – Trump Voter Suppression Appointee

The Chumph’s attacks to reinstitute Jim Crow continue with his appointment of racist whack jobs…

Congress can’t stop Trump from picking Census chief who believes ‘competitive elections are bad for America’

Thomas Brunell – The latest white supremacist POS appointee by the Chumph

The Trump administration appears likely to name Thomas Brunell, a political science professor who believes “competitive elections are bad for America,” to oversee the U.S. Census Bureau.

The University of Texas at Dallas professor has testified more than half a dozen times in favor of Republican efforts to redraw congressional districts — which always seem to target likely Democratic voters, reported Politico.

That would put Brunell — who has no government experience — in position to oversee the 2020 Census, which determines whether states gain or lose electoral voters and seats in the House of Representatives.

The top operational job has traditionally gone to career public servants with a background in statistics, and Congress would have no power to block him.

“If true, it signals an effort by the administration to politicize the Census,” Terri Ann Lowenthal, former co-director of the Census Project, told Politico. “It’s very troubling.”

Lawmakers pushed back when the White House considered Brunell for Census director, which requires Senate confirmation, but deputy director does not.

Brunell– the author of a 2008 book, “Redistricting and Representation: Why Competitive Elections are Bad for America” — has little demonstrable experience in federal statistics or management.

He has argued that partisan districts filled with like-minded voters — which he believes should be called “fair districts” — promote better representation because fewer voters would back losing candidates.

If he’s nominated, Brunell would become the highest-ranking permanent official at the agency.

“This is worse than making him director,” a former high-ranking Commerce Department official told Politico. “There still is going to be hell to pay on the optics. The Democrats and civil rights community will go nuts.”

Chumph Homeland Security Appointee Shitcanned For Being a Racist in Public

Seems that the Chumph’s appointees are all as dirty as he is. No surprise here – criminal shit gravitates to it’s own kind.

It is obvious the Chumph is trying to fill the government and the courts with racist thugs.

DHS official resigns after comments linking blacks to ‘laziness’ and ‘promiscuity’ came to light

Just another racist Chumph thug

A political appointee in the Department of Homeland Security abruptly resigned after the disclosure Thursday he previously made derogatory remarks about black people and Muslims on conservative talk radio.

Rev. Jamie Johnson, who was appointed the head of the DHS’s Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships in April, appeared on the program in 2008. The comments resurfaced on Thursday after CNN published a report about them with audio snippets.

The DHS, which had distanced itself from Johnson’s remarks earlier in the day, announced his resignation in the evening. 

“His comments made prior to joining the Department of Homeland Security clearly do not reflect the values of DHS and the administration,” said Tyler Q. Houlton, the acting press secretary of the DHS, in a statement.

The news of the comments comes amid a national discussion about race that has grown more heated in recent years. A white supremacist rally at the site of a confederate monument in Charlottesville in August that devolved into violence brought the explosive issue of racial animus to the fore. The DHS’s travel ban, which followed a call by presidential candidate Donald Trump to prevent Muslim immigration, has increased the perception the Trump administration is hostile toward Islam. White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, who appointed Johnson when he was DHS secretary, touched off a firestorm last month when he defended the honor of Confederate general Robert E. Lee and said a “lack of compromise” had caused the Civil War.

Johnson’s incendiary comments about black people came on the show “The Right Balance,” on Accent Radio Network, CNN reported. An unidentified speaker on the show said “a lot of blacks are anti-Semitic” and asked Johnson why.

Johnson extolled the economic successes of American Jews and said “it’s an indictment of America’s black community that has turned America’s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity,” according to a recording posted by CNN.

Johnson was active in Republican politics in Iowa for years, working for presidential candidates Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and Donald Trump in the state, CNN said. He was a regular guest on conservative talk radio shows.

As a guest host on the AM radio program “Mickelson in the Morning,” in Iowa, Johnson spoke harshly of Muslims, saying radical Islam was “faithful Islam.”

“I never call it radical Islam, if anything, it is obedient Islam. It is faithful Islam.” Johnson said, according to audio posted by CNN.

He later said he agreed with the conservative author Dinesh D’Souza that “all that Islam has ever given us is oil and dead bodies over the last millennia and a half.”

In a statement given to CNN before his resignation, Johnson said he regretted the remarks and said they do not represent his personal or professional viewpoint.

Chumph’s Judical Nominee Busted

In a blatant attempt at Nepotism/cronyism, the Chumph nominated a guy with only 3 years of law experience, and no judicial experience to the Federal Bench in Alabama…

It turns out that the nomination wasn’t only political payback but outright nepotism.

Yet another unqualified POS from the Chumph.

This is the reason the Chumph not only has to come down – but he has to come down in a way that invalidates every nomination and decision he has made, Nailing him for the collusion with the Russians is the best way to do that in that it would invalidate his election.

Trump judicial nominee busted after failing to disclose marriage to White House lawyer and Mueller witness

Brett J. Talley was nominated by President Donald Trump to serve in a federal judgeship in Alabama, despite never having tried a case in his life. Now it’s being revealed that the appointment might be another example of the president’s failure to “drain the swamp.”

According to the New York Times, Talley is married to Ann Donaldson, the chief of staff to the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn. Talley also never disclosed it on documents available to members of Congress who are weighing confirmation.

Talley was required to answer whether any family members or others would be “likely to present potential conflicts of interest.” He didn’t think to mention his spouse. He also didn’t mention her during his frequent contact with the White House lawyers during his nomination process.

The American Bar Association has already labeled Talley “not qualified” in a rare denouncing of the 2007 Harvard grad’s candidacy.

“Mr. Talley served as deputy solicitor general for the state of Alabama, currently serves in the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Policy and was recommended by Alabama’s U.S. senators,” said Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary. “He is more than qualified to serve in the federal judiciary.”

The Times notes that McGahn has been influential in the nomination of young conservatives to fill judicial appointments. Still, a White House official said Donaldson had nothing to do with the process of Talley’s nomination by the White House.

It was revealed recently Donaldson was a witness for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice in the firing of former FBI director James Comey. She reportedly kept detailed notes about her conversations with McGhan during the time the decision was made to fire Comey, according to two sources briefed on the matter.

Talley was passed out of the Judicial Committee on a party-line vote and is expected to come up for a full vote in the U.S. Senate this week.

Wedding Planner to Run Chumph Federal Housing Programs

Lawn Jockey of the week and future Orange Jumpsuit wearer…Lynne Patton

She claims a Yale Degree, and never attended the school and a Law Degree she was never awarded.

Yet another full time Chumph incompetent, unqualified, criminal and liar, this time selected solely on the basis of her race.

Trump chooses inexperienced woman who planned his son Eric’s wedding to run N.Y. federal housing programs

She’s arranged tournaments at Trump golf courses, served as the liaison to the Trump family during his presidential campaign, and even arranged Eric Trump’s wedding.

Now President Trump has appointed longtime loyalist Lynne Patton — who has zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned — to run the office that oversees federal housing programs in New York.

Patton was appointed Wednesday to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.

Patton’s tight relationship with the Trump clan dates back to 2009, when she began serving as the family’s “event planner.”

Lynne Patton (shown at 2016 Republican Convention) can boast of arranging Trump golf tourneys and Eric and Lara Trump’s wedding — along with an unearned law degree — but not housing experience for HUD gig.

“Responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,” her LinkedIn profile says. “Handle celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments.”

From 2011 through January, she also helped run the Eric Trump Foundation, a charity that’s now under investigation by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

She also claims on her LinkedIn page to have obtained a juris doctorate degree in 2000 from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut. Next to the J.D. notation is written (N/A) without explanation.

On Thursday school registrar Jim Benson said Patton attended for two semesters but did not graduate.

She also listed Yale University but HUD officials couldn’t explain why that was there. Patton, who begins her Region II job July 5, did not return calls seeking comment.

As head of the biggest HUD regional office in the U.S., Patton will oversee distribution of billions in cash to public housing authorities — including NYCHA — as well as tens of thousands of rental vouchers and block grants that fund housing inspections and senior citizen programs.

Patton is one of the handful of African Americans within Trump’s inner circle and a passionate Trump promoter. Last year she made a video entitled “I’m proof Donald Trump isn’t a bigot.”

Trump first placed her as a White House liaison at HUD in February. While there, she’s fired off multiple flamethrowing tweets for him and his family…

Patton has also had to defend her role as former vice president at Eric Trump’s foundation. Forbes last week reported the charity steered money to the Trump empire by holding events at Trump golf courses while she was there. She said nothing untoward happened at the charity.

Note – She is now under investigation by the FBI for fraud at that charity.
