The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

So the usual hate-Trump skunks have been boo-hooing this week because the Golden Scalp Weasel booted the loathsome Vindman twins and fired or reassigned a bunch of Obama holdovers from the NSC. Not only are some bad apples gone, but the actual number of NSC members has been reduced quite a bit. They're mad about that, too. Because, presumably, the Deep State is only supposed to expand, never contract.

My question is, why wasn't this done a long time ago?

I think Trump needs to compile a list of *every single* Obama appointee, and either ask for their resignations or fire their asses, no exceptions. This "resistance" bullshit has gone on far too long.

And the anonymous guy who wrote that stupid "we are the resistance" piece for the NY Times? When they find out who he is, they should consider charging him with treason.

Treason? Yeah, I said treason.

What is legimate resistance? That is, if you don't like what's going on in the country, if you don't like who's running the country, what can you do? Well, all sorts of things, actually: you can vote. You can organize voting drives. You can even run for office yourself, or contribute to the campaign of another. You can encourage others to do the same.

These are all legitimate ways to effect political change.

But you can't assassinate government officials, you can't blow stuff up, you can't send anthrax or other toxins through the mail. You can't order 400 pizzas to be sent to the Republican Senators' offices, and you can't spike the DNC's water cooler with LSD (although that would explain a lot). You can't organize your own army and conduct your own military operations which intent is to overthrow the elected government of the Unites States. Such are illegitimate means of resistance. Engaging in them makes you a domestic enemy that our military swears an oath to protect the constitution from. Included in this would be acts of deliberate sabotage, such as masquerading as a loyal staff member inside the government to impede it and keep it from accomplishing its goals.

If the "resistance" guy doesn't like Trump, he needs to get the hell out and actively work for the other team. What he's doing is the bureaucratic equivalent of dynamiting a power station of dumping sugar into the gas tanks of supply vehicles.

As I've said in a previous rant, Trump's biggest letdown has been with personnel, and his failure to thoroughly clean house. I think he may have started out kind of naive, but he should've wised up by now. They all need to go, every last one of those SOBs and the minimal requirement of getting on the "to be fired" list is having been appointed by Obama. Yes, you might lose some people who are just trying to do their jobs, but they have "the resistance" to thank for that. And you know, in the private sector, layoffs happen all the time, and for far more trivial reasons. Happened to me all the time. So cry me a river.

Oh, and whatever security clearances these stunning and brave "resistance" clowns have should be revoked upon departure. It's time for Trump to take the gloves off. No more mister nice guy. Trump needs to release his inner Trump.
