Sheriff David Clarke Accepts Appointment as Assistant Secretary in U.S. Department of Homeland Security….

This is really good news.  Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is accepting a federal appointment as Assistant Secretary within the Department of Homeland Security.

WISCONSIN […] He will work in the department’s Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments.

“I’m looking forward to joining that team,” Clarke said Thursday afternoon on the Vicki McKenna talk show on 1130 WISN Radio.

Clarke said he would start the job in June and that one of his responsibilities would be to “take complaints of shortcomings in the Department of Homeland Security.”

“They feel like they’re being ignored,” Clarke said of his counterparts in local law enforcement.

The position of assistant secretary does not require Senate confirmation.

Clarke has said in the past that it would be difficult to turn down a job offer from President Donald Trump if he was asked to join the administration.

Clarke will work for Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marine general. (link)

      Americas Sheriff joined Trump train over two years ago . It’s not the size of the man in the fight it’s the size of the fight in the man. I honestly thought I would never be able to trust a black man again but between some black American church leaders and Dr Carson and Sheriff Clark I’ve had to as been forced to face it color don’t mean a thing there is good and bad in all people as Pelosi Maximum be and Feinstein and Brown continually reminded be me . Now that that is straight onward and upward MAGA

      They need to give him the eastern half and appoint Sheriff Joe to the western half. He (Joe) would not need to even leave Arizona as they have a big brand new DHS building at Deer Valley road and 7Th, St. here in North central Phoenix.

      Hope this is an ‘entry level’ job for Sheriff Clarke and he rises through the ranks to bigger and better things in the near future. He’s the epitome of law and order. He’ll bring integrity to his new position. He was born to lead, protect and defend and he’s got a wealth of character and common sense, both of which are hard to find in govt these days.

      Americans can sleep better with a man like Sheriff Clarke keeping watch. Congrats, Sheriff!

    Not strictly related to Sheriff Clarke’s DHS appointment, but related to the tough law enforcement he adcvocates:

    Erdogan’s security team bloodies protesters in DC

    In the video I see police doing a lot of ineffectual grappling and pushing attackers out of the way and they just spin off and return to battle. I see only one cop at 0:40 wielding a baton.

    When will we return to standard operating procedure in riots being cops wading in with nightsticks and cracking heads? (or collapsible batons, the modern version).

    Put rioters on the ground crying and nursing their bleeding split head or debilitating crack in the shin. Take them out of the battle.

    It’s simply exasperating to see our law enforcement forces charged with maintaining order being neutered so as to be almost universally ineffectual.

            Hey Antifa’s, let’s look at what your brothers do to storefronts and personal property that is in the path of your riots.

            You burn buildings, destroy police cars and injure officers, shatter windows, cause expensive damage with spray paint, eggs, clubs and bricks. You shut down traffic and prevent ambulances and fire trucks from responding to life threatening situations. You trash everything in your way and leave behind tons of polluted garbage and expect taxpayers to clean up after you. You urinate and relieve yourselves either on people or on our streets. You kick, hit, spit and bloody people, including seniors and innocent bystanders. Last summer during one of your riots, you injured a police horse so severely that he had to be put down. Not a word of condemnation from your PETA cohorts.

            You are paid to act like idiots and worse, vandalize, destroy and cause personal, harm. When peaceful Americans get a gut full of your anarchy and realize our police too often operate on ‘stand down’ orders, sometimes somebody pushes back and gives you a taste of what you out others through. It has nothing to do with Nazism. Its called justice.

    Being from Milwaukee, I am thrilled with this news. It is so perfect for Clark. He and Kelly will make a good law and order 1-2 punch team. Kelly can initially focus on the borders and Clark can focus on the cities and internal department organization? And both stop the drug running and gangsters all over.

    Post a picture of Kelly and Clark on the border wall all over staring at Mexico saying “Try to come to America illegally and end up in jail”. That should be enough to scare them.

        My sincere prayer is that Sheriff Clarke puts some heat on the scuzzy dishonest cops and evil city officials in places like, say, San Jose where the cops don’t protect people who go out to campaign rallies. Or other well-documented, notorious California People’s Republic of Mexicali riots.

  6. Moving from applause to opportunity for Sheriff Clarke:

    “He will work in the department’s Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments.”

    YUGE Opportunities:
    • Prioritize which States and Cities should get ICE support FIRST, based on their level of cooperation, in deporting Illegal Criminals.
    • Identify Sanctuaries that should forfeit Federal Law Enforcement Funding, and determine when they meet the criteria to qualify for restoration of any future funding.
    • Engage Federal DHS resources to support local law enforcement in actions to detain agitators and anarchists interfering with Americans’ Civil Liberties, including Antifa, BLM and OFA.

    I absolutely LOVE Sheriff Clarke and I cannot wait for him to remove the nonsense out of the TSA and other homeland security BS. He is the most level-headed, no-nonsense guy I’ve ever seen in political theater. If I may be so affectionate, I would say “he’s muh niguh!” I would only disagree in that he should be in a MUCH more prominent role. I hope he is advanced or promoted sooner rather than later.

    I read the link Sundance put for this article concerning Sheriff Clarke. It is a bit of a hit piece much like is produced on Trump. However, IMO, it’s time to get off the roller coaster and stay off. This is great news, in spite of, what gets said by those involved in the uni-party (which includes msm). We know the msm & rino/Dems will continue to do what they are doing, because their goal is to destroy. It will be a long time if ever, anyone from that group will ever speak or do differently. Knowing this, it would help to change the expectation of them saying or doing anything positive concerning Trump, his family, his cabinet, his accomplishments, or his Presidency! Instead, focusing on doing what we can to aide Trump and each other, would be more beneficial. President Trump will be in his position for 8 years. I for one refuse to keep riding this up one minute down the next, and sometimes more down than up. I came to this site (by accident) and found political understanding, truth, and encouragement, and remain, as we move toward MAGA. When discouraged, remembering what Thumper’s mom told him in the Bambi Movie is good advice.
    I am so thankful for Sundance, his team, and others on this site, who are politically knowledgeable, have garnered much wisdom, and post in a teachable manner, that leaves one encouraged, often refreshed, & even some much needed humor! I am glad to have a branch on this tree.

      Assistant Secretary Clarke while serving as Milwaukee Country Sheriff was a no nonsense, no excuse, hands on leader.
      The man is all business.
      If you think your job working for Clarke is 9 to 5 Monday thru Friday Secretary Clarke has news for you, and it ain’t good.

    • Sheriff Clarke will be the DHS liaison with local, state and tribal law enforcement, making sure their concerns are heard at DHS. He may get a larger brief if things go well in coming months. Right now, I don’t see him in the Ms-13 hunt.


  23. Rosech says:

    First of all, Trump moves on and up for America. Sheriff Clarke is an outstanding person and will work just as hard in the Homeland Security (what security before Trump? NONE). Meanwhile, Trump just keeps on moving America forward while the traitors in the MSM and Congress just keep trying to bring him down. Sorry, you will be brought down and karma won’t be nice! You are not true Americans and we will rid OUR America of you. You have earned our disrespect and dislike and that means you MUST go one way or another.

    As an old Marine, I hate to say it but the retired General seems to be a dud in the job as far as illegal immigration is concerned. Don’t think his heart is in it. Save the Sherrif to run for U S Senate in WS.
