WASHINGTON — The White House on Monday warned State Department officials that they should leave their jobs if they did not agree with President Trump’s agenda, an extraordinary effort to stamp out a wave of internal dissent against Mr. Trump’s temporary ban on entry visas for people from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Career officials at the State Department are circulating a so-called dissent cable, which says that Mr. Trump’s executive order closing the nation’s doors to more than 200 million people to weed out a handful of would-be terrorists would not make the nation safer and might instead deepen the threat.

“These career bureaucrats have a problem with it?” Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, told reporters. “They should either get with the program or they can go.”

Asked if he was suggesting that people resign, Mr. Spicer said, “If somebody has a problem with that agenda, that does call into question whether or not they should continue in that post.”

Washington (CNN)Acting Attorney General Sally Yates has told Justice Department lawyers not to make legal arguments defending President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees, according to sources familiar with the order.
The move sets up a dramatic clash between the White House and Yates, who was appointed by President Barack Obama and is set to serve until Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump's nominee for attorney general, is confirmed.

"My responsibility is to ensure that the position of the Department of Justice is not only legally defensible, but is informed by our best view of what the law is after consideration of all the facts," she said in a letter. "In addition, I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution's solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right."

President Trump has signed an executive order that bans citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East from entering the United States for 90 days, according to the White House. His proposed list doesn’t include Muslim-majority countries where his Trump Organization has done business or pursued potential deals. Properties include golf courses in the United Arab Emirates and two luxury towers operating in Turkey.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A man who President Donald Trump has promoted as an authority on voter fraud was registered to vote in multiple states during the 2016 presidential election, the Associated Press has learned.

Gregg Phillips, whose unsubstantiated claim that the election was marred by 3 million illegal votes was tweeted by the president, was listed on the rolls in Alabama, Texas and Mississippi, according to voting records and election officials in those states. He voted only in Alabama in November, records show.

In a post earlier this month, Phillips described "an amazing effort" by volunteers tied to True the Vote, an organization whose board he sits on, who he said found "thousands of duplicate records and registrations of dead people."

Trump has made an issue of people who are registered to vote in more than one state, using it as one of the bedrocks of his overall contention that voter fraud is rampant in the U.S. and that voting by 3 to 5 million immigrants illegally in the country cost him the popular vote in November.

The AP found that Phillips was registered in Alabama and Texas under the name Gregg Allen Phillips, with the identical Social Security number. Mississippi records list him under the name Gregg A. Phillips, and that record includes the final four digits of Phillips' Social Security number, his correct date of birth and a prior address matching one once attached to Gregg Allen Phillips. He has lived in all three states.

At the time of November's presidential election, Phillips' status was "inactive" in Mississippi and suspended in Texas. Officials in both states told the AP that Phillips could have voted, however, by producing identification and updating his address at the polls.

Citing concerns about voters registered in several states, the president last week called for a major investigation into his claim of voter fraud, despite his campaign lawyer's conclusion that the 2016 election was "not tainted."

"When you look at the people that are registered, dead, illegal and two states, and some cases maybe three states, we have a lot to look into," Trump said in an ABC interview.

Reached by telephone Monday, Phillips said he was unaware of his multiple registrations but asked, "Why would I know or care?"

"Doesn't that just demonstrate how broken the system is?" he asked. "That is not fraud — that is a broken system. We need a national ID that travels with people."

President Bannon Directed the Alleged President to fire her for refusing to dispute the court ruling that she said was illegal.


The White House said that Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, would be acting U.S. attorney general until Sessions is approved.

Boente said in an interview with the Washington Post that he would enforce the immigration order.
There have been only a handful of instances in U.S. history of top Justice Department officials publicly breaking with the White House.


The most famous example was in 1973, when then-Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy resigned rather than obey President Richard Nixon’s order to fire a special prosecutor investigating the Watergate scandal.

The incident, which became known as the 'Saturday Night Massacre,' was a public relations disaster and is seen as a turning point in Nixon's administration.

Trump Fired the Head of Immigration Enforcement within the last hour.

The President does not understand that the Attorney General swears to defend the Constitution of the United States, not the do what the President wants.

Trump Replaces Acting Director of Immigration Enforcement
by Alex Johnson
President Donald Trump replaced the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday night, shortly after he fired the acting attorney general, the Department of Homeland Security confirmed.

Unlike the firing of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, the replacement of Acting ICE Director Daniel Ragsdale came with no explanation. Ragsdale was replaced by Thomas Homan, ICE's executive associate director of enforcement and removal operations since 2013.

"I am confident that he will continue to serve as a strong, effective leader for the men and women of ICE," John Kelly, the secretary of Homeland Security, said in a brief statement.

Homan, a former New York police officer, is a 30-year veteran of immigration enforcement, having served as U.S. Border Patrol agent and deputy assistant director of ICE for investigations, according to DHS.

The announcement came as turmoil swirled around Washington over Trump's firing of Yates, an Obama administration holdover, as acting attorney general.

The oath of office for the attorney general. It is not a pledge of loyalty to the President.

"I (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to
the same; that I take this obligation freely without any mental
reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully
discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So
help me God."
That is he oath of office she swore to It does NOT say do what ever the fucking President wants him or her to do.

Prediction:

Our esteemed host will say the liberal media and gullible Democrats are wrong and out of touch. He's popular. .That's good enough!

A few quick observations. First, the statement seems to indicate that the executive order was reviewed by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, which apparently concluded that the executive order was lawful. Second, Yates does not claim that she cannot defend the executive order because it is unconstitutional or because the Justice Department would be unable to offer good-faith arguments in defense of its legality.

To the contrary, Yates claims she is ordering the Justice Department not to defend the executive order because it is not “wise or just.” This is quite significant. I am not aware of any instance in which the Justice Department has refused to defend a presumptively lawful executive action on this basis.

[...]

There is some precedent for this sort of thing. Recall the “Saturday Night Massacre,” when Attorney General Eliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckleshaus resigned rather than fire special prosecutor Archibald Cox at President Nixon’s insistence. If AAG Yates believes she is being asked to do something that violates her conscience — as she apparently does — this is the model she should have followed.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2017/01/30/acting-attorney-general-orders-justice-department-attorneys-not-to-defend-immigration-executive-order/?postshare=9841485823138024&tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.0ac94e7790c0



so, yates was fired for being an insufferable partisan hack. well, she's an 0linsky appointee so that goes without saying.

and the watergate similarities begin and end not with what happened but with what she did not do but should have done which is resign.

one thing's for sure - it certainly lit the fuse on the alky's tampon.

yeah, those tears were fake...


Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third ranking member of the Senate Democratic leadership, on Tuesday said it may be necessary to halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the United States.

Republicans immediately seized on Schumer’s comment, which breaks with other Democrats who have argued against halting the program.

Schumer, however, declined to take the option off the table ahead of a special briefing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon on the process that is now used to vet refugees entering the United States.
“We’re waiting for the briefing tomorrow, a pause may be necessary. We’re going to look at it,” he said.

The attorney general serves at the pleasure of the president.

And when she commits willful insubordination, she gets fired, end of story.

yup.

and i knew we were in for an alky meltdown of epic proportions when i watched crazy larry and ralph strap-on shrieking "nixon!" "saturday night massacre!" and "watergate!" last night on MSDNC.

CH is correct. you can predict each of the alky's posts and comments simply by watching and reading the hackiest of left wing media hacks.

Loretta Russo said...

"it seems that not a day goes by that i don't wake up to a mountain of liberal hypocrisy"

Obama actually issued a pause for six months on refugees coming from Iraq back in 2011.

No tears, no protests.....nothing.

The Dow Jones saw its worst day of trading Monday as markets reacted to the global outcry following President Donald Trump's executive order on extreme vetting.

The Dow slid by more than 200 points, dropping under its historic milestone high of 20,000. It was a vast departure from the rapid ascent that saw the 120-year-old index gain 9 percentage points since Trump's election on November 8.

The negative market reaction reflected widespread uncertainty after the unprecedented and swift action taken by the Trump administration to restrict travel to America from seven majority-Muslim nations.

Also on Monday, Wall Street's famous "fear index," the CBOE Volatility Index, jumped by 18 percent, according to FactSet.

"You've got a major policy that was implemented very quickly," John Conlon, chief investment officer at People's United Wealth Management, told CNBC. "That's causing uncertainty."

Though Wall Street initially championed Trump's hardline tactics to bring about deregulation, boost infrastructure, and reform the tax code, markets were spooked on Monday by the way the controversial immigration measure was executed — with one insider saying he believed investors were thinking twice about the coherence of Trump's policies and their benefit for the nation.

"I find it very difficult to believe that after pricing in heavy premiums based on fiscal promises, that investors are not now reconsidering what damage Trump might do by implementing other promises that supplemented an incoherent and ranting political campaign," said Jameel Ahmad, vice president of research at FXTM, told CNBC.

"Whether it is building a wall, banning certain nationalities, starting a trade war or pretty much anything else President Trump may do to upset people, it does risk both creating and deepening a negative perception of the U.S.," Ahmad said.

quite. all you can do is mock him at this point.

CH certainly pegged him correctly as a rock-ribbed member of the 8% that will swallow ANYTHING the msm will feed him.

exhibit A: the firing of sally yates. where i come from if you are guilty of insubordination, your ass gets fired. period. but to watch MSDNC last night you would think it was some sort of political armageddon.

Too much comedy for me.

The U.S. stock market has seen a massive rally since Trump's election, with the S&P and Dow advancing 7.25 percent and 9.61 percent since Nov. 8, respectively. "You're coming off all-time highs on virtually every index," said Mark Spellman, portfolio manager at Alpine Funds. "It doesn't take much for people to take a breather."

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/01/30/us-markets.html

the non-hysterical among us see it as a bit of profit taking. and a cursory glance at my retirement account has me smiling BIGLY in spite of the pull back.

smart money BUYS today, while union hacks who need a union pension hack to do their thinking for them reacts hysterically because NBC news, (where he pulled his copy/paste) told him to shit his depends.

After the White House announced Monday night that acting Attorney General Sally Yates had been relieved of her duties for refusing to enforce an executive order that, in her expert legal opinion, was not “wise or just,” Fox News commentator Howard Kurtz began counting the seconds before pundits started making comparisons to Richard Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre.”

KD, You're FIRED, about time said...

Like I said sally was a bitter Obama Clinger.

Sessions needed to be already in position, but, that little shit eater chuckless schumer is being a extremist.

At this point in Obama's 1st term all of his people were in place, today only 3 of President Trumps are, this is not sitting well at all in the winning States.

KD, HB bets against America Again said...

ACLU Barbie cheering again against the US People and those of US that invest, sorry you are so financial broke that you can not invest.


There is a theme, ACLU Barbie cheered on Nov 9th, 2016 when the market futures dipped by about 800 points, he was spurred on by his equally braindead friend paul neverright Krugman.

From that point on the Trump Rally added 1000 points the fastest ever in stock market history.

SO for those of with money and investments, given Krugman and ACLU Barbie's stock picking record the next month should be fantastic.

Loretta Russo said...

"Like I said sally was a bitter Obama Clinger."

Trump should have fired her on day one.

KD, You're Fired said...

Agreed, I notice ACLU Barbie came out in support of Her. HB is wrong so often it is a running joke here. Since RRB stop putting up threads I almost never go to the trash blog unless I want to see what a child ACLU Barbie is being.

Can you imagine telling your BOSS you think his plan for the company is WRONG and YOU know more then HE/SHE does and then telling your workers to do it as you say.

I am sure that would go over well in a UNION Shop, let's say on job site .

KD, Educating ACLU Barbie is tiresome said...

IS everyone getting tired of educating HB on all issues Economic and Financial?

Aug. 8, 2011 634.76 (-5.55%) 10,809.85 The Dow dropped in reaction to Standard and Poor's downgrading of the U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA-plus. "


Aug. 10, 2011 519.83 (-4.62%) 10719.94 The Dow dropped still reacting to the Standard and Poor's downgrading of the U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA-plus "

So HB, tell us again , that yesterday was "devastating" , those two days above where worth 1,100 point drop and - 10 %, a full blown technique correction.
