First, a fairly standard and well put look at Brexit – this type of chap is good for the cause but you can see his niceness even so and niceness can be a bit naive. He argues as a rational person would:
The American site running it was:
The situation in the U.S. is similar to ours and once again – someone saying she would do something then does not do it, in fact does the opposite:
I’m not sure this is a female thing of competence, as people like McConnell and Romney, Ryan and Sessions did the same sorts of things. Methinks there’s something about the female appointed to high office though – she seems susceptible to something I can’t quite place – more so than a man, at least they react differently.
But that’s only part of it – the Donald seems to be a worry too in his appointments. Now, is there someone in there, in the WH, who is advising him badly? Is there a realisation in his mind that this person doing the recommending is constantly letting him down?
Is it, for example, Javanka?
Look at his early actions – getting rid of people like Bannon and Gorka, two people very much into MAGA and he appoints careerists, gets rid of Hope Hicks – who is leaning on him to do that? he is not appointing MAGA people.
He appoints this Kirstjen Nielsen, she resigns, Nikki Halley resigns – what is happening?
A clue to Nielsen is in the November 9th, 2017 article at Breitbart on Ann Coulter’s take:
New York Times bestselling author and populist conservative commentator Ann Coulter says President Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Kirstjen Nielsen, is “an open borders zealot.”
In a radio interview, Coulter slammed Trump’s appointment of Nielsen — whom Breitbart News has been vetting — as a loss for the president’s pro-American immigration reform agenda, which includes construction of a border wall, mandatory E-Verify to keep illegal aliens out of the U.S. workforce, and a reduction in legal immigration to raise Americans’ wages.
Since then, this Nielsen has backslid or slid sideways on every major policy regarding border security:
1. Separating families, a winner for the Dems;
2. Catch and release of illegals – release for goodness sake!
3. No new border wall going up.
They call her Lady DACA.
Now is this DJT himself doing the wrong thing and blaming officials whom he then sacks? Or are his rages over the lack of progress real – in other words, he sees 2020 slipping away, and is Nielsen one of the quislings, as Sessions turned out to be?
Is it his judgement in appointing these people, lack of vetting? OK, of course he can’t personally vet everyone, he relies on his staff. So who are the quislings in there deliberately making him look bad?
Obviously Nielsen but who recommended her?
That’s what’s going on all over the place just now – who actually does have the political will and if he has it, is it enough?
And look at this – can you explain it?
A 2014 appointment of Obama. Is DJT trying to do a May and be nice to everyone, ‘bring everyone together’, despite their astounding hostility to him? does he really believe he can bring America together?
Someone wrote that this May lunacy – that all must be appeased – is an impossiblity. Look, there are two world visions going on here, diametrically opposed and that is that. It’s like Leave and Remain – you do one or the other and ne’er the twain shall meet.
If he does not do as he promised by the end of 2020, I can’t see him getting back in.
Trying to find some of the least trolling comments which throw some light on it perhaps, very difficult to find sane info:
# A lesson here. Nielsen is a professional sycophant. Anyone who has worked in any large organization has experienced people like her. The psyche of these people is such that they curry favor of superiors and act as thought they are their number one supporter when in fact they feel no loyalty and do not walk their talk. They are not leaders or innovators. They are more self centered by far than is the average person.
# It’s upgraded replacement and renovations. The 18-30-foot steel bollard fencing is replacing about 70 miles of Normandy-style vehicle barrier in New Mexico, and 20 miles is completed. This same bollard fencing is replacing the dilapidated landing-mat wall and chain-link fencing in various sectors.
Construction of the first new border wall, where no barrier existed before, is expected to start this month in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, with 14 miles of a levee wall. A total of 55 miles of additional border barrier in the RGV is funded in the 2019 budget bill.
Yeah, I’m disappointed that not more has been accomplished to date, but we’ll see what gets built this year.
The trolling is off the scale, as intended. Someone is clearly acting in bad faith – I just don’t know who.
