President Trump Announces New DHS Secretary Nominee Kirstjen Nielsen…

Today, President Donald J. Trump officially nominated Kirstjen Nielsen for the position of Secretary of Homeland Security. Ms. Nielsen is currently the White House principal deputy chief of staff.

The nomination should pass through the senate confirmation process quickly. Democrats will gnash their teeth; however, Trump focuses on competency and simultaneously mirrors their ‘identity politic‘ attack strategies back at them.

Ms. Nielsen has extensive professional experience in the areas of homeland security policy and strategy, cybersecurity, critical infrastructure, and emergency management. She is the first nominee for this position to have previously worked within the Department of Homeland Security, having served there in two administrations, first as senior legislative policy director for Transportation and Security Administration under President George W. Bush and then as Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff under President Trump.

Before joining the Trump Administration, Ms. Nielsen founded a risk and security management consulting firm. She previously served as Special Assistant to the President and senior director for prevention, preparedness, and response on the White House Homeland Security Council under President George W. Bush, in addition to serving as a corporate attorney and as a congressional staff member. (White House)

    Two women leading Department of Homeland Security. Nielsen / Duke

    This should be a 100-0 vote in the Senate. Even Gillibrand and Pocahontas must be pleased

    Ms. Neilson doesn’t appear to be guided by the judeo-masonic curse with a flair for islam. May Ms. Neilson serve as proof positive that the mills of God continue to grind slowly and exceedingly fine.

  15. President Trump’s willingness to advance women of merit and character belies the scurrilous accusations of the misogynist Left.

    In Prehistoric times, the men would leave the village for the hunt and entrust the security of the village to the women. This is in a woman’s DNA.
    Excellent choice, a female with experience. Good Luck, Ms Nielsen.

    I think we should pity all the morons who still think he’s a monster and are missing all these great choices and awesomeness President Trump is bringing us.

    They talk about feminism but here President Trump promotes a woman not because she’s a woman but because SHE’S THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE JOB REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT SHE’S A WOMAN.

    Awesome! Sounds like she will be great. Now, she has to get through the Senate which she will do with flying colors. The problem is that someone needs to light a fire under the Turtle to get him moving on it.

    She now leads an agency which was created for two purposes: a feeding trough for friends of the administration, and another layer of bureauacry to ensure that nobody could do anything about the feeding trough. Will there be backstabbing? No. It will be more like a flailing machete attack coming from all sides. I will assume her to be a straught arrow because Trump approved her. My advice: get some upright competant people around you. They can be found at DHS in every place except key positions. They are there, in the dark corners and isolated cubicles. Waiting.

  22. On the Administration Women Front:

    Has Sec of Transportation Elaine Chou produced anywhere NEAR what other department heads have?

    • She had YUGE governmental experience before her appointment, so she should have quickly out-delivered her peers coming out of the blocks.

    • She had Mitch for a husband, to grease the skids in Congress.

    Is she sandbagging the Infrastructure Agenda just as Secretary Price did on ObamaCare and Gary Kohn has on that Tax Plan?

      Don’t know if you will be held to the Sessions standard, “do you have proof of what she is doing, absence in important matters isn’t proof of malingering”, at least not until the matters pile up into a crushing weight.

      But I would like to point out a flaw in logic. You point out, “She had YUGE governmental experience before her appointment, so she should have quickly out-delivered her peers coming out of the blocks.”

      I am sorry, but those are contradictory statements. You must be from the real world where experience equals competence. ‘Huge government experience’ means she can only get things done at her beloved Turtle’s pace.

      The abscence of real competence doesn’t guarantee incompetence either. As you will note, I am still presuming that she can get things done within government. Not necessarily a sound assumption either.

      Besides, doesn’t ‘huge government experience’ have as high a likely hood of being ‘deep state’ as she has being the Turtle’s wife? And do we really expect the ‘deep state’ to allow Trump any accomplishment that it can prevent?

      But until the matters pile up, we must, by association with Trump, give her the benefit of the doubt, since her delay is obviously part of some 64 dimension chess game that everyone else can see except for you and me.
