White House Personnel Office Begins Reevaluation of Administration Staff…

More good signs.  Last week we noted Johnny McEntee (pictured right w/ Stephen Miller) was promoted to run the White House personnel office responsible for filling hundreds of top political jobs throughout various federal agencies. Mr. McEntee replaced Sean Doocey, who moved to the State Department.

The personnel office has been a key point of contention for the administration as several political appointments later became weak points with people not in alignment with the policies and objectives of President Trump.  The objective of McEntee would be to assist in finding and vetting the right MAGA person, with the right MAGA skillset, for the right job.

Today Axios is reporting:

Johnny McEntee called in White House liaisons from cabinet agencies for an introductory meeting Thursday, in which he asked them to identify political appointees across the U.S. government who are believed to be anti-Trump, three sources familiar with the meeting tell Axios.

Behind the scenes: McEntee, a 29-year-old former body man to Trump who was fired in 2018 by then-Chief of Staff John Kelly but recently rehired — and promoted to head the presidential personnel office — foreshadowed sweeping personnel changes across government.

  • But McEntee suggested the most dramatic changes may have to wait until after the November election.
  • Trump has empowered McEntee — whom he considers an absolute loyalist — to purge the “bad people” and “Deep State.”
  • McEntee told staff that those identified as anti-Trump will no longer get promotions by shifting them around agencies. (more)

        Trump is not a political creature. He stepped into the White House without without the need to appoint campaigners to political office.

        Truth is Trump has his bearings, let democrats destroy themselves and folks know he’ll be re-elected. The system is adjusting itself to that reality.

          kelly doesn’t hate trump AS MUCH as he is compromised to a deep state/IC allegiance.

          this is where the conflict exists…this is a symptom of very big problem with former military flag/general officers who taste a bit of power and get consumed by it…they betray the service to country and trade that dedication for the attractive and highly rewarding direct influx of new monies (millions) in the bank account by supporting a very specific foreign policy agenda. Sometimes it happens to benefit the US and its citizens and the president. Often, it never does and should be exposed as such.

          Kelly exposes this toxic nature of unelected officials who start to think they can control a president and the agenda.

          kelly is one of those people who will narrate his actions as justified because he knows best what is good for the country.

  24. Personally, in all of this forthcoming discussion, I would strive to down-play catchphrases such as “MAGA” and “anti-Trump.” Because the underlying issue is really much more fundamental than that. (IMHO)

    (IMHO) “This go-round, and for the very first (IMHO) time in American history,” we have witnessed an enormous cross-section of government operatives – very plainly manifesting themselves across all three Branches – who were “singularly and steadfastly opposed to ‘this(!) POTUS!”

    This is absolutely not(!) how “our form of Government” was carefully designed to play out.

      That’s why Independent candidates don’t usually win. When they do these problems will likely occur.

      Same for Dems this time around. Sanders isn’t a Dem. Were he to win, he’d face entrenched opposition from some Dems already in government.

      The problem seems to be that neither party truly promotes candidates that appeal to a majority of the party members. I’m guessing the parties will fade or change and that the system will survive. In other words, our two main political parties are out-of-touch and need to be replaced. Our system is fine.

    So Kelly fired McEntee due to alleged problems with his security clearance, allegations of on-line gambling, etc.; DHS was also conducting an investigation. He was walked out of the White House without being allowed to collect any personal belongings, including his jacket. This is per multiple articles I found. Since then, he has been working on President Trump’s re-election campaign.

    No charges were from what I can tell so until proven otherwise, I am going with the theory that deep state swampy Kelly was trying to take out those close to President Trump.

That’s what the Dems would do!


      • Dr Ben Carson is doing great work running HUD. He visits many of the worst cities and neighborhoods so a good number of blacks are seeing or hearing of him. Dr Carson is promoting Opportunity Zones that are also really helping people and raising awareness of Trump doing more for blacks. He’s also visiting homeless areas and has been aggressively challenging mayors and other do nothing locals on their failures. Finally, he’s uncovered massive amounts of fraud in HUD. These accomplishments are getting good exposure through Trump & the White House, you just won’t see them on corporate media. Just had to respond, Dr Carson is one of my favorite people, a non-politician with a big heart, who puts old school corrupt pols to shame.

      There still seems to be a problem with loyalties..ie, Barr, who thinks it’s ok to complain publicly to the media about his boss rather than talking to his boss about it and this guy Joe Maguire who goes to congress to say the Russians want to support Trump before telling Trump this is what he is planning on saying…similar to Sessions recusing himself before telling the boss what he is going to do. Are these guys all getting paid off? Or stupid? Or just so swampy they are not thinking at all?

    • P.s., to those asking, “What took so long?” First, PDJT came into office facing all the Deep State coups and other garbage after an Electoral College runaway but with an alleged popular vote deficit (v. Clinton) and a GOPe that didn’t fear him.

      He’s since subdued most of the treacherous GOPe wing, which still hates him but now also fears him and no longer has any substantial base of its OWN voters (independent of PDJT). He defeated some of the worst attacks, from seemingly all sides, in American political history. And his popular base has grown and become even more passionate.

      Well, that’s how power is amassed when you don’t play for the Big Club! It’s 1,000,000 times harder to achieve that the Monday morning QBs are suggesting.
