Can’t Work for a Criminal – DEA Chief Resigns

How could any Law Enforcement official work for the criminal/racist Chumph? Or work with a racist like Sessions.

Seems to me to be a violation of any professional ethics to work for a traitor and criminal who abuses the Constitution and ignores the Law.

Acting DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg Plans To Resign

Chuck Rosenberg, acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration, will resign at the end of the month.

Rosenberg, a holdover from President Barack Obama’s administration, announced Tuesday that he would be stepping down from the DEA and leaving the Department of Justice, according to an email sent to DEA staff and obtained by The Washington Post and The New York Times. HuffPost also confirmed the contents of the email with sources who have an understanding of internal DEA matters. Anonymous law enforcement officials told the Times that Rosenberg had become “convinced that President Trump had little respect for the law.”

“The neighborhoods in which we live are better for your commitment to the rule of law, dedication to the cause of justice, and perseverance in the face of adversity,” Rosenberg wrote, according to the Post. “You will continue to do great things. I will continue to root for you, now from the sidelines.”

It’s not immediately clear who will replace Rosenberg, who has been acting head of the DEA since 2015. According to a source with knowledge of internal discussions at the DEA who was not authorized to speak on the matter, Col. Joseph Fuentes, head of the New Jersey State Police, was believed to be a leading candidate to replace Rosenberg.

Trump’s selection of a permanent successor would likely set up a contentious confirmation battle, which could serve as a proxy for a larger ongoing debate over the nation’s drug laws.

Another Chumph Casualty – Chaffetz

They are beginning to fall like flies…

Don’t want to be a part of Treason.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz announces that he will step down in June

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, announced Thursday that he will step down on June 30, leaving his seat in the House before the end of his term.

“[A]fter careful consideration and long discussion with my wife, Julie, we agree the time has come for us to move on from this part of our life. This week I sent a letter to Governor Herbert indicating my intention to resign from Congress effective June 30, 2017,” he wrote, in a letter to his constituents.

He continued, “[A]s I celebrated my 50th birthday in March, the reality of spending more than 1,500 nights away from my family over eight years hit me harder than it had before.” Chaffetz also told constituents, “We feel my time in congress has been well spent, but it now seems the right time to turn the page.” He said he’s never believed he was indispensable and added, “I know others can and should serve.”

In April, Chaffetz announced his decision not to run for re-election in 2018, surprising many and opening up speculations about a potential run in the Utah governor’s race.

He was first elected to represent Utah’s 3rd Congressional District in 2008 and won four separate re-election campaigns by wide margins.

The congressman currently serves as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. His decision to leave early comes after his invitation for ousted FBI Director James Comey to testify before Congress Wednesday regarding his memos about his converstations with President Trump and investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Comey has not yet confirmed if he will attend the hearing.

Chaffetz told CBS News this week that he wants to conduct the Comey hearing “as publicly as we possibly can.” On Tuesday, he said in a tweet that he is prepared to subpoena the memos.

CIA Exodus Because of Trump

A lot of folks in the Government feel the same way…

I didn’t think I’d ever leave the CIA. But because of Trump, I quit.

Edward Price worked at the CIA from 2006 until this month, most recently as the spokesman for the National Security Council.

Nearly 15 years ago, I informed my skeptical father that I was pursuing a job with the Central Intelligence Agency. Among his many concerns was that others would never believe I had resigned from the agency when I sought my next job. “Once CIA, always CIA,” he said. But that didn’t give me pause. This wouldn’t be just my first real job, I thought then; it would be my career.

That changed when I formally resigned last week. Despite working proudly for Republican and Democratic presidents, I reluctantly concluded that I cannot in good faith serve this administration as an intelligence professional.

This was not a decision I made lightly. I sought out the CIA as a college student, convinced that it was the ideal place to serve my country and put an otherwise abstract international- relations degree to use. I wasn’t disappointed…

Trump is standing in front of the most sacred place at the CIA – the wall commemorating those who died in service to America. Their names are not listed on the wall for security reasons. Not only a national disgrace – but a lot for patriotic Americans risking their lives to handle.

As a candidate, Donald Trump’s rhetoric suggested that he intended to take a different approach. I watched in disbelief when, during the third presidential debate, Trump casually cast doubt on the high-confidence conclusion of our 17 intelligence agencies, released that month, that Russia was behind the hacking and release of election-related emails. On the campaign trail and even as president-elect, Trump routinely referred to the flawed 2002 assessment of Iraq’s weapons programs as proof that the CIA couldn’t be trusted — even though the intelligence community had long ago held itself to account for those mistakes and Trump himself supported the invasion of Iraq.

Trump’s actions in office have been even more disturbing. His visit to CIA headquarters on his first full day in office, an overture designed to repair relations, was undone by his ego and bluster. Standing in front of a memorial to the CIA’s fallen officers, he seemed to be addressing the cameras and reporters in the room, rather than the agency personnel in front of them, bragging about his inauguration crowd the previous day. Whether delusional or deceitful, these were not the remarks many of my colleagues and I wanted to hear from our new commander in chief. I couldn’t help but reflect on the stark contrast between the bombast of the new president and the quiet dedication of a mentor — a courageous, steadfast professional — who is memorialized on that wall. I know others at CIA felt similarly.

The final straw came late last month, when the White House issued a directive reorganizing the National Security Council, on whose staff I served from 2014 until earlier this year. Missing from the NSC’s principals committee were the CIA director and the director of national intelligence. Added to the roster: the president’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, who cut his teeth as a media champion of white nationalism.

The public outcry led the administration to reverse course and name the CIA director an NSC principal, but the White House’s inclination was clear. It has little need for intelligence professionals who, in speaking truth to power, might challenge the “America First” orthodoxy that sees Russia as an ally and Australia as a punching bag. That’s why the president’s trusted White House advisers, not career professionals, reportedly have final say over what intelligence reaches his desk….

Yet Another Trumpazoid Career Ending Tweet –

View image on Twitter

Notice the origin of the sexist tweet was right wing Lawn Jockey Larry Elder…

How to Twit your way out of Congress! I do love it when Rethugly reprobates self immolate, removing themselves from the virtual political gene pool.

A lawmaker retweeted an offensive post about the Women’s March. Days later, he resigned.

Nebraska State Sen. Bill Kintner stood before reporters on Wednesday morning and called himself a “fighter.”

Kintner, who had previously been involved in a cybersex scandal, this month drew criticism for an offensive retweet about the Women’s March, which appeared to joke about the issue of sexual assault. At the news conference, Kintner, a Republican, said that he had received emails, calls and text messages asking him to stay and continue his work in the state government.

“Well, as much as my heart says to fight, my head says it is time to step away from the legislature,” he said. “It is no secret to anyone who knows me that there have been many disappointing and frustrating times in my over-four years in the legislature.”

Then he continued: “I have concluded that it is wise to step down as a member of the Nebraska legislature.”

Kintner announced his resignation, stating that it would be effective Jan. 30.

“To paraphrase Richard Nixon, you won’t have Bill Kintner to kick around anymore,” he said toward the end of his comments…

The Associated Press reports that Kintner was previously fined $1,000 after admitting to “engaging in mutual masturbation in July 2015 with a woman using Skype, an online video-chatting service.” He used a state computer, according to AP.

More recently, Kintner drew criticism for a retweet to his Twitter timeline, according to reports. The World-Herald, which has posted an image of the retweet, reported that it showed three women who appeared to be carrying signs in a women’s march. The signs referenced a recorded 2005 conversation in which President Trump made inappropriate comments about women.

Above the picture, a person who posted the initial tweet wrote: “Ladies, I think you’re safe.”

Condi Hits the Wall – Dump Trump!

Black conservatives have notoriously cast iron stomachs being able to swallow the racist shit of their fellow white conservatives on a daily basis.

Finally – Condi Rice speaks out.

In this obviously photoshopped photo, Condi is represented as the misogynist right’s favorite “black babe”. Guess she’s out of that tub of crap now…

Condoleezza Rice Calls On Donald Trump To Drop Out Of The Race

Too bad it’s too late to take him off the ballot.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice broke her silence on the presidential election on Saturday and called on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trumpto end his campaign.

“Enough! Donald Trump should not be President,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “He should withdraw. As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.”

Rice, who served as secretary of state and national security adviser to former President George W. Bush, is the latest in a growing list of prominent Republicans who have condemned, unendorsed or called on Trump to withdraw from the race within the past 24 hours.

The wave of revolt against the GOP nominee was prompted by a 2005 video The Washington Post released Friday, which shows Trump bragging about groping and kissing women without consent because “when you’re a star, they let you do it.”

Rice, who is now a professor at Stanford University, has been noticeably quiet this campaign cycle, declining multiple interview requests on national security issues related to the election. Her chief of staff, Georgia Godfrey, did not immediately respond to an email asking if she would vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton― or why she waited to distance herself from Trump until it was too late for the candidate to be removed from the ballot.

As Trump gained momentum in the GOP primary race earlier this year, party strategists reportedly tried, unsuccessfully, to recruit Rice to make an independent bid for president.

Rice said she wasn’t interested in serving as Trump’s running mate, but phrased her statement in a way to suggest that her lack of interest was related to the job itself, not the man at the top of the ticket.

“Dr. Rice has repeatedly said in past cycles as well as this one, she’s not interested in being vice president,” Godfrey said in June.

Mizzou President Resigns Under Pressure from Students and Staff

University of Missouri president resigns over criticism of his handling of racial incidents

The president of the University of Missouri resigned Monday amid escalating protests over racist incidents on campus and how he had responded to students’ concerns.

Tim Wolfe announced Monday morning at a special meeting called by the Board of Curators, the university system’s governing body, that he would step down immediately.

Tensions were high on campus Monday — with a student on a hunger strike, others camped out in solidarity, faculty members canceling classes and members of the football team threatening to boycott the rest of the season. In the morning, the MU undergraduate student government association formally called for the removal of the university’s president….Read the Rest Here

MSNBC Wusses Out…Again. Martin Bashir Resignation.

MSNBC commentator Martin Bashir has tendered his resignation to MSNBC. More than likely he was asked to leave by cowardly MSNBC Management. This leaves a huge hole in MSNBC’s lineup, taking away what was by far, their best interviewer. I mean I love you Rachael, but although she is smarter than the entire collection of Faux News bimbos combined, cutting through the bullshit in an interview isn’t her strong point. Bashir is a victim of responding to the Sno’ Ho’s ignorant and racist comments in kind – saying what a lot of us would if we had the microphone.

To be honest, if MSNBC is too chickenshit to call Palin on her pernicious and offensive racist statements…

Then they are too chickenshit for this viewer.

Putting this one under the heading of Domestic Terrorism.

 

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC Following Sarah Palin Comments

Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC following weeks of controversy over his incendiary comments about Sarah Palin, he announced in an email posted byMediaite on Wednesday.

“Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the president of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation,” the email read in part. “It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.”

In a statement, MSNBC president Phil Griffin paid tribute to Bashir:

“Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC. Martin is a good man and respected colleague – we wish him only the best.”

Bashir had been a host on the network since 2011, and had frequently raised eyebrows with his hyperbolic commentary. But his comments in November in response to remarks about slavery by Palin touched off a firestorm. Among other things, Bashir said that someone should defecate and urinate in Palin’s mouth, a punishment delivered to some slaves. He apologized, but the comments continued tohaunt him.

Bashir’s resignation came shortly after Alec Baldwin parted ways with MSNBC over anti-gay comments he made towards a photographer. At the time, many wondered why Baldwin, who was suspended for two weeks for statements he made off the air, was seemingly being punished more than Bashir, who was not given any immediate suspension.

Bashir’s departure leaves a hole in MSNBC’s afternoon lineup. Leading candidates for the slot include MSNBC contributor and guest host Joy Reid, along with the recently hired Ronan Farrow. For the time being, Reid will fill in as a guest host.
