    Has anyone seen that Trump also fired the head of ICE? He was appointee as well. What was the connection if any?

    STATEMENT FROM SECRETARY KELLY ON THE PRESIDENT’S APPOINTMENT OF THOMAS D. HOMAN AS ACTING ICE DIRECTOR

    WASHINGTON — Today, the president appointed Thomas D. Homan acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

    Since 2013 Homan has served as the executive associate director of ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). In this capacity, he led ICE’s efforts to identify, arrest, detain, and remove illegal aliens, including those who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who enter the United States illegally or otherwise undermine the integrity of our immigration laws and our border control efforts.

    Homan is a 33-year veteran of law enforcement and has nearly 30 years of immigration enforcement experience. He has served as a police officer in New York; a U.S. Border Patrol agent: a special agent with the former U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service; as well as supervisory special agent and deputy assistant director for investigations at ICE. In 1999, Mr. Homan became the assistant district director for investigations (ADDI) in San Antonio, Texas, and three years later transferred to the ADDI position in Dallas, Texas.

    Upon the creation of ICE Homan was named as the assistant agent in charge in Dallas. In March 2009, Homan accepted the position of assistant director for enforcement within ERO at ICE headquarters and was subsequently promoted to deputy executive associate director of ERO.

    Mr. Homan holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and received the Presidential Rank Award in 2015 for his exemplary leadership and extensive accomplishments in the area of immigration enforcement.

    I am confident that he will continue to serve as a strong, effective leader for the men and women of ICE. I look forward to working alongside him to ensure that we enforce our immigration laws in the interior of the United States consistent with the national interest.

      Maddow had a phone call with Huffington Post on this one. Supposedly the original guy, Ragsdale, not fired. Just had top position since Jan 20th. Referenced a tweet from ICE. Also, that both him and Homan were originally Obama appointees. Of course Maddow had to frame Homan as a deportation police guy.(Probably just from the statement bio)

Leftists and activists media – parading as journalists – are beside themselves. They had forgotten /underestimated/ignored the thinking of the rest of the country – us.

    What we saw today was an acting AG who was using tactics equivalent to those rioting in the streets. She blatantly ignored her oath of office and decided that the laws that bind us all did not bind her. This is the left, whether they are in the streets, or in the corridors of power. The system means nothing, laws mean nothing. Trump was fully justified in firing her and I’m gratified he did so.
    (I have a feeling she would have been gone soon anyway, which probably helps explain her willingness to behave in the disgusting manner she did).

    Lady liberty was feeling vanquished, her book of laws was becoming heavy. Her torch but a dim flicker. The chains on her feet were burdensome. Her gaze was blurry. The blood of tyrants stained her dress. She has stood watch over our nation and as signpost of freedom across the globe. They all thought she was to reaper. Then we started to pay attention to our Lady, our ears deciphered the corrupted language, our eyes became as a fire in the night. We found out we were not alone and we came to her rescue. Our hammers of truth smashed the chains that bound her. The fire in our eyes became her beacon. Our love of nation cleansed her dress. She is rising from the tyranny that sought to destroy her. Our Lady is standing tall again because we came to her in her hour of need. S. Boston 1-30-2017

      And here’s the thing I find rich in irony: The tool in Justice, SYates, now being fired and replaced by a Trump place-holder, leaves the Senate ZERO reason to continue the stall on Sen. Session’s confirmation.
      As long as Yates was there doing the left’s bidding, thwarting President Trump, Schumer and his group of crying ninnies could laugh in their club chairs for weeks — or longer — drooling over the “power” they had to obstruct him.

    With all the talk of our President’s brilliant maneuvering I have to share this: Trump Files Early With FEC For 2020 Candidacy, Outmaneuvers Nonprofits

    Here is the beauty of it:

    “More importantly, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations would no longer be able to engage in “political speech” which could theoretically affect the results of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election without running the risk of losing their nonprofit status. The move effectively bars interest groups from creating nonprofits which they could funnel money into for the purposes of opposing Trump’s initiatives. This will likely create chaos for political opponents of Trump such as George Soros, who has sunk significant amounts of money into various nonprofit groups with the intent of opposing Trump’s government.

          By firing Yates, he showed the dweebs he is for real, and not playing games. They did not think he would have the guts to fire her. He proved them wrong.
          Once it sinks in, they will fall over each other to please him in order to keep their jobs.
          Classic corporate maneuver- take down the head troublemaker hard, fast, in flames, and the rest of the dweebs fall in line.
          The DOJ dweebs have never seen anything like it. This is how private industry works- the boss actually demands and expects results. And if you buck the boss, you are gone.

            No. I think some may stay in and become moles, clandestinely undermining the Department head — in their individual divisions — at least until they’re identified and fired.

            J. Christian Adams, for example, whose past experience at the DoJ and inside knowledge of the CRDivision would be a great help in identifying the black hats.

              Ideologues, yes. But in the end, their only loyalty is to themselves. That is how progressives roll. It’s all about them, personally. When push comes to shove, no loyalty to anyone or anything other than themselves.
              They are only ideologues and ‘brave’ as long as they are in charge, because they know there will be no consequences for their actions (or lack of).
              By canning Yates, the head honcho, Trump drove home the fact that the little dweebs will no longer be protected from the consequences of their actions. He cut off the head of the snake, and they know it.
              Reality time for them. They will tuck tail and choose their jobs over their ideology.

                Really depends on who I oh are referring to – if it’s any leftover appointees, I agree, they’re ideologues. But many of the career attorneys, especially those in immigration, while most are Dems, are nevertheless very accustomed to doing unpopular work. For years they have been going to court to enforce the immigration laws which can be illegal unpopular, especially in the 9th Circuit, and I don’t think all were pleased with Obama’s lack of enforcement.

Her action of insubordination was a felonious action and as an obstruction of justice and obstruction to carry out the law and in oath breaking these were also felonies. The swift anvil should have dropped on her head and seen her imprisoned.

      This brings to mind Judge Hanen latest opinion on DAPA, and his bizarre allowance of accepting a past-due court deadline of presenting (by a year!) DOJ factual proof of DOJ lawyers no intended malice to mislead the court.

      Then, retroactively entering “said” DOJ testimony into the court records.

      Then, SEALING “said” testimony.

      Then, removing all prior sanctions of “identified & named” lawyers, removing the “5 yr mandate ethics class”, to replacing sanction with a blanket statement of DOJ unethical involvement in DAPA proceedings.

    Read “Nixon Off the Record,” by Monica Crowley. Fascinating portraits of these folks, up to and including the Clintons, by Richard Nixon, who had a rare gift for sizing people up. Odd, in one who was so awkward socially; but nothing much missed his sharp gaze. The man was brilliant, after all, and a staunch anti-Communist, which is the real reason the Left destroyed him.

    Dear President Trump

    Would you please consider slowing down just a wee bit. All this winning in one day is so hard to keep up with. By the time I finally get over laughing at one win you go and fire the acting AG and it starts all over again. If you could pace it out just a little so we can savor each victory just a little more would be great.
    You know what, on second thought, forget it. If I have to sit here every night and pee my britches laughing so hard at all this winning, then so be it. Fired the acting AG. BWAHAHAHAHA
