Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 1st,2016

.. Mike Flynn is someone who tells it like it is , not like how someone might want a situation to lOOK Like ..

.. Flynn is not one who suffers fools . In his previous jobs [such as at the NSA , at CENTCOM , aand as the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency] , you cannot afford to . You also cannot put up with P.C. CRAP . Flynn does not , not at all ..

.. as the NSA , Flynn will not need to be confirmed by the Senate . Also , he cannot be forced [as a Presidential staff appointee] to testify by force [or subpoena] before either House of Congress ..

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. as NSA , President Trump will have a security chief who will be willing to knock heads with the agencies , if necessary . He will also not mince words on America ‘ s security status , especially when the tough stuff needs to be told …

… What are the ObamaCraps thinking [#Iran nuclear Deal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 25th,2016

.. indeed , what are they thinking ?!?! …

.. they are a bunch of damn fools and idiots …

.. especially if they think that Iran can be trusted …

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog post // audio segment ..

.. the p5+1 may reach a deal with Iran . However , it will not bind Israel to anything . Once the Israelis believe that Iran is at the ” breakout ” point [to its nuclear program] , Israel will indeed strike Iran …

.. Israel will act in its national interest . Even if its action is in contravention to the actions of a certain U.S. President . Bibi may not even care what Obama thinks , to be honest …

… You Have Got to be Kidding … Cha , Cha , Cha …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 5th,2013

.. Tom Donilon , the master leaker and political hack , out . Susan Rice , from the UN to the NSC . Samantha Power , a longtime veteran leftwing loon anarchist , from the depts of the NSC , to be our U. S. Ambassador to the U. N. .

.. You have got to be kidding ?!?!

WASHINGTON (AP) — A White House official says President Barack Obama will name former aide Samantha Power as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Power will replace Susan Rice, who will take over as Obama’s national security adviser. The official says Obama will announce both appointments from the White House Wednesday afternoon.

Power is a longtime Obama adviser who worked on his 2008 presidential campaign and ran the human rights office in the White House. She left the administration in February but was considered the favorite to replace Rice at the U.N.

The official insisted on anonymity in order to confirm the appointment before it was publicly announced.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s top national security adviser Tom Donilon is resigning . He will be replaced  by U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice , marking a significant  shakeup to the White House foreign policy team.  A White House official confirmed the personnel changes Wednesday  morning ahead of a planned announcement by the president later in the day.

Donilon has been a key foreign policy adviser to Obama since he             first took office. But the 58-year-old had been expected to depart             sometime this year, with Rice seen as the likely candidate to             replace him.             Rice, a close Obama confidante, came under withering criticism from             Republicans as part of the investigations into the deadly attack on             a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. Rice, relying on talking points             from the intelligence community, said in television interviews that             the attacks were likely spontaneous, which was later proven             incorrect.             Obama considered nominating Rice as his second-term secretary of             state, but she withdrew amid the GOP criticism, saying she didn’t             want her confirmation fight to be a distraction for the White House.             Her new post as national security adviser does not require Senate             confirmation.             The White House official said Donilon is expected to stay on the job             until early July, after Obama wraps up two overseas trips and a             summit later this week with Chinese President Xi Jinping.             The official insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the personnel             changes before they were publicly announced.

… and the reaction , from a video clip , from RealClearPolitics …

..JAMES CARVILLE : ” My guess is that he wanted her to be Secretary of State , and he felt like she kind of got railroaded there and this is kind of in your face

appointment, but he obviously thinks a great deal of Ambassador Rice. Like I say , he wanted her to be Secretary of State. She’s not confirmable and it ‘ s like a message that he’s going to stick by. He views her as a competent person and probably as a friend of his. You know, I think it’s an in your face appointment and he feels good about making it . ”
