      The President has one constant it seems. No hesitation to make personnel changes to achieve results. He is comfortable giving someone some rope and let them run with it, but too, is not a sentimental-to-a-fault leader. He will cut someone and not let it be a personal thing.. it’s just what it is. Do the job, get results, or you will be replaced and no malice. Just how it is.

      I think so. Preibus had some interim use 1) get him out of the RNC top job and get someone more aligned with POTUS goals-accomplished, 2) give RINOs a chance to get on board for a 6 month window, with Preibus facilitating with his clique-utter failure by Reince. Preibus became useless to POTUS and he is likely a leaker and part of the problem, so your fired. He was allowed to resign to save face.

      Now total war, the Big Ugly as SD has been saying, on the Uniparty skunks, liars and treasonous filth. #MAGA

        No. But look at Pres Trump’s tweets, UN Ambassador Haley’s statement (and no call for a meeting of the Security Council– as it was ‘pointless’), Brit’s pride of the fleet heading for the south China sea; the President’s phone call with Abe; SK Pres Moon allowing for the deployment of Thaad, successful testing of Thaad in Alaska just a week ago. US surveillance planes over China and NK, US base in Korea moved out of range of conventional weapons and away from Seoul; Chinese reinforcing of their border with NK, Russia expelling US diplomats, and the Chinese press saying that if the US attacks NK, they will only mobilize if it damages (the environment) of north China (weird that statement) and calling on the US to separate the NK issue from trade talks. So there is that.

    …Somewhere outside the meeting room Reince Priebus is polishing the desk and shuffling chairs for Gen. Kelly. Also, taking selfies with SS overseeing the transition (to make sure nothing is stolen)…

      Mooch called him a paranoid schizophrenic, which sounds harsh, but at least it isn’t sexual. I’d have to know more about those leaks Priebus was responsible for to have an idea where he might be headed in the near future.

    President Trump has learned the hardway. You cannot run anything efficiently, effectively and enthusiastically with a bunch of Washington DC political insider corruptly convoluted hacks.

    Trump is starting to realize what he probably knew all along, Trump needs American citizen patriots. People who do what is correct for Americans and not people who do what is correct for themselves.

    General John Francis Kelly, born into a Boston Irish Catholic family, has a remarkable and broad military career, both stateside and in the battlefield, including as a Congressional liaison.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_F._Kelly

    Like my own father, he ran away to the merchant marines at a very young age and when he was old enough, joined the military.

      Linked to the NY Slime:

      “The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.

      It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.”

      The people?

      Whether this report is true or not, this must be the new moniker for ‘White House Officials’ or ‘department officials’.

          I love it that just when the WH staff let out a breath of relief at Scaramucci being gone they must have one second later, thought, uh oh, now the General is here. He’ll be a softspoken but big stick terror that should keep most of them quiet. The General is no BS, just action when necessary. They should be afraid, very afraid. 🙂

    I think Kelly sees the real Oval Office problems are based around two mistakes:
    Bad communications (which he now can control), and bad schedule of priorities with Congress.
    That scheduling came from bad advice. Which he now will control.

    Kelly is at the rudder. He commands the ship of state.

      Scaramucci went wild in that week or so, and his mouth was his downfall. He had so much going on outside the White House in his personal life….that had to take a toll on his emotions.

      It looks like he got a really bad case of Potomac fever, went out of his head trying to work in the White House and lost all sense of direction. He had such a successful business and life prior to all this.

      My heart breaks for him and for his wife, for that new little baby boy and his other child or children.

    I got an email from General Kelly today. I doubt if he minds if I share it with the Treehouse:
    Quote:
    This morning, I will be swearing an oath of office to defend the Constitution for the 16th time – this time to be the White House Chief of Staff.

    Although I am moving downtown, you are in good hands at DHS. Elaine Duke will be the Acting Secretary. Few people know DHS as well as Elaine does, and she will step in and continue with a strong focus on the mission. Also, Chip Fulghum, the current Acting Under Secretary for Management will once again step up – this time as the Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary.

    Additionally, the Department’s Chief of Staff, Kirstjen Nielsen, will begin a White House detail today to support my move. In her absence, Chad Wolf will be the Department’s acting Chief of Staff.

    With these changes I expect that the Department will not skip a beat.

    While I am honored to have this new opportunity, I will truly miss being your Secretary. You are a tremendous group of selfless public servants…the best of the best our country produces. You deserve more praise and recognition than you receive, but rest assured you have my respect and deep thanks.

    Thank you for the honor of having served America by your side in the home game.

    Thank you for letting me walk the often dangerous southwest border trails with you, and for showing me how you keep America safe at the ports in Miami and Long Beach.

    Thank you for your efforts to keep those who would do us harm from receiving a visa or entering our homeland illegally.

    Thank you for the respect you showed me when I visited our Coast Guard fleet.

    Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to accompany you on pre-dawn ICE operations in the dangerous work of apprehending criminal-illegal aliens.

    Thank you for keeping millions of airline passengers safe, our cyber networks free of contamination, and helping our citizens recover from natural disasters of every kind.

    Thank you for all the other thousands of things you do each day for our country.

    Thank you most of all for allowing me to be part of the DHS family.

    Sincerely,

    John F. Kelly

    Secretary of Homeland Security

        Why hasn’t anyone mentioned the BIG leak from AIR FORCE ONE??? I thought Gen. Kelly was brought aboard to end leaks. And now this big one.To say that POTUS wrote Jr”s statement also gave the MSM the opportunity to say the president LIED in that statement. That leak gave POTUS’ enemies a lot of ammunition to work with. This leak is important in what it implies. Let’s see if Gen. Kelly finds the culprit.

    • I hope not about Corey.

      He got or helped Trump get here. The rest is up to others to get him the rest of the way. To build and implement the agenda that got him elected.

      To get that done you need a fine tuned machine. There has to be order. There has to be everyone moving in one direction as a unit.
      But you also need to pull others into your way of thinking. You need others, even the ones you hate the most, to join you to move the country forward.

What concerns me though, is that Scaramucci is now out as communications director. What the hell is going on? I hope President Trump realizes that all of this shuffling is making it appear as though the White House is totally dysfunctional. I would imagine it’s all a part of some grand plan to get things right, including getting rid of the leakers, but still, it’s pretty unnerving.
