BREAKING: President Trump Fires Reince Priebus, Hires General John Kelly as Chief of Staff…

President Trump has just announced via Twitter that he has fired Reince Priebus from the position of Chief-of-Staff and has replaced him with DHS Secretary John Kelly.  It would appear GOPe Priebus’s inability to guide ObamaCare was the final straw.

Perhaps this also provides the opening to move HR McMaster out of the NSC and into the DHS position….  interesting development, but not unexpected:

“My hunch is that Reince Priebus will be gone by the end of August along with Sean Spicer and most of their RNC team of White House leakers.”  ~ CTH July 23rd

    Honestly, I have lost faith in the elections. In 2010, 2012, 1014 and 2016. we have elected numerous so-called conservative republican candidates in Senate and Congress, and nothing changed even with a wonderful and patriotic president we have elected last year. I guess money and power change those elected politicians to a point where we, the peoples, who have put them in office have become worthless to them. All these talks about the next election cycles and primaries are fine, but I have no faith in the next elected batch when they come to DC and face with the same money and power temptation. I am old and tired and do not know what the real solution is to solve this corruption. Thank God for Donald Trump and enjoy his fight while we all still can.

    • I know this won’t help much but it has taken 30 years to fully entrench the swamp. The beginning of the purge started in 2010. It’s really only been 3 election cycles and the results have been pretty good. It’s a process. As time goes on we see more and more the lies and collusion between the dhimmicrats, RINOs and enemedia and realize that we’re all being played. That is how PDJT came to be elected. The real test, I think, will be the next 3.5 years. PDJT is used to making things happen and he’s a man of his word. There will be no namby pamby excuses. He will do everything possible to follow through on his promises. Sundance calls it the coming “big ugly”. I am not sure exactly what it’s going to look like but I will continue to support PDJT through it. We need to stand with our President and make sure we vote.

        Truth. There are nine winnable Democrat seats in 2018. More than enough to overcome the seven “Republican” hold outs. Plus, with sixty potential votes, a real repeal can be proposed and that’s going to put a lot more political pressure on them. We need to be confidently marching forward, not moping about a temporary set back. This fight was never going to be fast and easy.

Happy to see President Trump in office & I am seeing with my eyes the changes he is making & trying against many odds. Let’s believe in more positive news. The exposure of the uniparty will really leave naked with no excuse these politicians & that will also help the voter see what & who they are. Making progress takes time.

      The root of all evil is the love of money.
      Once the elected officials get there, they are hot after money. The more they get, the more they want – insatiable desire for corrupt money (e.g. Bill and Hillary). They sell their souls to Satan for money and they lie, they cheat, they put their wants above all else. It completely changes who they are, they are no longer recognizable.
      Our president had money – he had no need for the money – as a matter of fact, he handed his businesses over to his kids and donates his presidential salary every quarter. I don’t understand how nearly every citizen cannot see how our president is working so hard to help us the average/normal citizen and not the big businesses that fill the pockets of Congress, Senate, and Judges.
      Like you, JC – I am weary as well. President Trump is nearly all alone in his fight for us against the swamp. I continue to pray for him, his family, and his cabinet, and I continue to write the Senators and my own Congress reps. It is the least that I can do for all that he has subjected himself and his family to this. There truly is a war that rages.

        yes, thank the Lord that we finally have a common man who is just like us in the WH. Can’t drain the swamp fast enough, so glad he has appointed outsiders to all of these positions – again, regular working people just like us – instead of the usual case of connected insiders with their own vested business interests in the industries they are now overseeing. God bless these people, all of them, for putting us ahead of their own self-interests.

    I’m wondering how much of this week was previously scripted by our genius POTUS. Several sites have said Kelly has been on board for two weeks and Priebus was also aware of the change.

    Scaramucci going all Sopranos on Ryan Lizza also seems somewhat theatrical . . a deliberate attempt to throw presstitutes off the scent.

    POTUS called this week Recognizing American Heroes. The LI trip was long-planned. I think he had chosen this moment to introduce Kelly as a tie-in between Kelly’s work on immigration, on the border, and the MS-13 epidemic in Suffolk County and elsewhere.

    It’s also almost like he also knew Repeal and Replace would fail and he seems not the slightest bit worried about it. I wonder if that was also a set-up with McConnell.

    POTUS has such impeccable timing. I remember thinking that as he spoke in Ohio earlier this week. He’s an absolute natural. (I’ll bet he would have made a fine pianist or conductor).

    He’s also honed his dramatic timing and scripting through many seasons of The Apprentice as well as through his association with WWE.

    I truly think failed novelist Ben Rhodes has more than met his match with the genius of Donald Trump. And with Stephan Miller cranking out one brilliant speech after another which POTUS delivers ever more exquisitely, Rhodes and Schmuck Barry are being revealed as the talentless hacks they always were.

    POTUS is the supreme producer, writer and actor in his WhiteHouse. And the ending has already been written. MAGA.

    Reaching for a sports analogy, it’s like Tom Brady coached the team, drafted the players and is also the star quarterback.

    According to this article, McMaster won’t be going to DHS, but may be going to jail along with the other leakers–whenever AG Sessions starts draining the sewer.

    BOOM! Report=> McMaster Caught Privately Communicating WH Internal Politics to Deep State McCabe. The Trump base will be happy to hear this. Investigative reporter Mike Cernovich wrote McMaster’s time is running out. Cernovich has been reporting for months that McMaster is on the globalist’s agenda and secretly working against President Trump’s ‘America First’ plans. McCabe is the swamp! As TGP previously reported, Comey’s replacement as Acting FBI Head, Andrew McCabe, has ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign.

    Reince Previous was head of RNC and during the time period in which he campaigned for 8 years on repealing O-Care. So, after Trump won, he was probably brought on board as an olive branch to GOP establishment.

    Although RP was most likely linked to the leaking, he was probably terminated due to the failure to align the Senate and the GOP around the repeal vote and the clear disunion in the Republican Party. Mr. Previous lacks leadership skills and is a terrible mole.

    Trump terminated the former head of the RNC and appointed a USMC general as his new Chief of Staff. Let that sink in.

    Battle lines have been drawn, and you’re either on Trump’s side or you’re not. I read a comment where John McCain was allegedly over heard by several staff aides after the vote laughing and saying “Let’s see Donald try to make America great again now”.

    So yes, battle lines are now going to be distinguished. No more Mr. Nice Guy President. Got that RINO’s?

              With that pick, President Trump made an attempt to bridge the ENORMOUS gap between us (real Trump supporters) and the slimy, scummy globalist RINOs. Priebus was supposed to be Trump’s ambassador to those clowns in Congress. Priebus (predictably) failed.

              In ‘advancing’ Priebus to the WH, Trump removed him from the RNC. And put him under a 5-year moratorium for lobbying.

              Priebus (predictably) failed, and now he’s out of a job, and out of the way.

    POTUS has done a six month assessment and is making personnel changes. Reince was ineffective as COS and in his role to convert congressional swamp creatures. If he was a leaker, no way would he remain in the whitehouse for several weeks transitioning Kelly into the position. He would have gotten off AF1 and driven home.

    I think our POTUS has always known nothing would pass this Congress. He’s setting them up like bowling pins to be knocked down in next years elections. We, thanks to Sundance, see the Uniparty with crystal clear vision. Our glorious POTUS is letting the rest of the nation see the Uniparty for what it is. Next year, he will campaign during the primaries for MAGA supporters and he’ll campaign on all the things the Uniparty is blocking. It’s hard to wait, but the result will be worth it. He’s getting ready. We should, too. His Chief of Staff is now a General. He’s signaling that this is a political war he fully intends to win. Let’s be ready to follow our leader into political battle and MAGA!

    I like General Kelly. He seems to be doing a great job in DHS. But is chief of staff really something he can handle? The White House senior staffs are so fragmented and full of people with different ideology and agenda. Will Ivanka or Anthony listen to Kelly? If they don’t, I can see this appointment as the career suicide for Kelly.

But I come here and either I am being fooled by a master manipulator, or this guy SD is really a step ahead. I feel like there is everyone else’s news, and my news. And there is a stark difference. Either way, I love this blog, and I hope we are all correct.

    Trump will nominate Duke for deputy secretary, directly below the recently confirmed DHS Sec. John Kelly. If confirmed, Duke will replace acting deputy secretary Chip Fulghum.[…]”

    She was confirmed.

    She is a long entrenched swamp rat and liked by the pro-immigration types.
