It is clear that the left-wing fifth column is doing everything to stop what the people’s president. Will the traitors go after Mattis the way they went after Flynn?

We need an across the board massive purge of  Obama operatives.

Obama Appointees Preventing Mattis From Rebuilding The Military, Says Armed Services Chair

By Russ Read, Daily Caller, February 16, 2017:

Holdovers from the Obama administration in the Pentagon are hampering efforts to fix the military’s major readiness problem, leaving Secretary of Defense James Mattis alone in his efforts to properly equip U.S. forces, according to the chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services.

“I am concerned that … to fix these problems [it] is going to take a lot more money, and yet a lot of the folks who are coming up with the budget to fix them are the same people who have been fighting every step of the way against our efforts to fix these problems,” said Chairman Mac Thornberry during a Capitol Hill press gaggle Thursday.

Thornberry noted that Mattis is “alone” in his attempts to alleviate the readiness problem at the Pentagon. He added that there are some people, including “political appointees and others from the Obama administration,” who have been “trying to deny there was a problem.”

The Vice Joint Chiefs of Staff warned the armed services committee last week that the lack of military readiness across all branches was putting the military’s capabilities at risk. Their reports revealed, among other substantial problems, only three of 58 Army brigade combat teams are ready for combat, while fewer than half of the Air Force’s aging aircraft fleet is ready to fight.

Thornberry emphasized that Mattis can’t solve the problem by himself, and that the slow process of filling defense roles at the Pentagon is preventing the Trump administration from fulfilling its promise to rebuild the military. He also said the the issue goes beyond budgets, and that the U.S. has a moral obligation to support the troops.

“I think it is wrong, immoral to ask men and women to go carry out a military mission for which they are not fully equipped, and fully trained, and fully supported,” said Thornberry. “And whether that is a counter-terrorism operation or a freedom of navigation operation in the south China sea, or whatever; if you ask somebody to go out there and risk their lives, you darn well better give them the best and fully support them.”

  • Mrs. Chief

    Trump call all of them into your office & fire them, then reactivate those officers fired by obama.

    • JacksonPearson

      Drain the swamp, with lots of pink slips, without delay!

    • pandainc

      Might just be a problem here — I’m betting that most of the fired ones wouldn’t want to come back. After getting screwed, and assuming most of the flag officers had over 30 years service (a 75% retirement) why would they? They’re probably either fully retired or have rather lucrative jobs.

  • Don Pelayo

    The Obama regime had 8 years to stack the ranks with subversives and infil-traitors. Trump needs an iron broom to clean this mess out.

    • ladywarrior

      Mattis is the “iron broom”….but it’s not going to be done overnight…..it’s only been a month, folks. Rome wasn’t built in a day and our military won’t be re-built in a month. First you have to identify the enemy within and then start bouncing them out the door….if you can’t fire them….then reassign them to Alaska or somewhere they can’t tolerate…..they’ll quit.

      Next, Trump has to get rid of “tenure” for government employees who are the only people who can’t be fired. Which is ridiculous on it’s face.

      If we got rid of McLame, Flaky, Lil’ Marco, and Grahamnesty that would go a long way to cleaning up the GOPe…..

  • chitowncircle

    Get rid of ALL obama appointees and hires.

    • karl59

      By putting them in prison

    • tatka150

      and the whole equipment with bugs all over the place

    • Drew the Infidel

      Like the fecal matter in a toilet, when they start stinking it is time to pull the handle.

  • Chris Wolf

    Purge the obamists.
    Round them up.
    Convict and execute.
    Up to and including the African dictator hisseff.
    They criminalized politics; we have to eradicate them.

  • Craig

    TRUMP MUST GET RID OF ALL RAT OBAMA APPOINTEES and all hirees during his “reign”.
    These are anti-American socialists and communists and they will do everything they can to derail Trump’s plans.
    Death to the enemies of the United States.

  • Rocinante44

    i don’t understand the delay in purging DC of obola’s embedded enemy forces, we all know who they are. trump needs to just fire them. it will have no effect on the govt’s operations. these folks haven’t worked more than 8 hours per week in the life.

    • ladywarrior

      Unfortunately, many can’t be fired because of government “tenure”…..but they can be reassigned to very unpleasant jobs……..

      • Cetansapa

        How about the middle of Antarctica without cold weather gear?

  • JacksonPearson
    • Lisa Garska Norwood

      Good one!! Their actions only prove that the Democratic party has never cared about the American people. They would put our lives at risk if that is what it takes. They just want revenge because their girl lost… the election was suppose to be rigged so Clinton was a shoe-in, but God had other plans. I just hope their supporters finally get it… this party does not care about their lives… just their votes. The Dems just want control of everything… Communist!!!

    • Pathfinder0100

      This is true!!

  • Glen Saunders

    If the Trump Administration did not hire or appoint them send them packing. No way should our new President and his Staff have to put up with the gaggle fu*k of Obama and his minions. Drain the swamp.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    There is no value in dragging the misery out any longer, get rid of every o’bimbo appointee immediately. Then make it perfectly clear that inferior job performance will result in the immediate dismissal of other potential saboteurs.

  • AlgorithmicAnalyst

    Got to get rid of the traitors.

  • Lisa Garska Norwood

    This is another stunt that shows just how much the Democrats do not care about the American people. Right now their only agenda is to be bitter and vengeful, trying to make President Trump look like a failure in his first 100 days. The Obama leftovers along with Obama’s Shadow Government, are not making Trump look like a failure…. They are only making their party, Obama and themselves look like the failures we already knew they were. Clean house… Give the leftovers an ultimatum; either support the new Administration or be gone. Trump also needs to have the DOJ go after Obama for putting our country at risk with his stupid tricks, like ease-dropping on appointees and citizens’ phone calls… A Felony!!! That is what Snowden tried to tell the people and the Dept. of National Security, and they charged him with espionage, just to cover up their evil and treasonous actions. Obama’s legacy is definitely coming out in the open…. But not like he had it all dreamed up in his delusional and warped mind. Trump will make America great again… With or without the Democrats support!!!! After all, his support of the people is 3 times stronger than the libs are!!

    • KimWilde

      Lisa, no ultimatum, but the door without any retirement package. These people are traitors.

  • Banjoboy

    It seems President Trump should pull all government employee hire dates and replace any hired while Obama was in power.

    • ladywarrior

      No can do…..they are not fireable……you have to reassign them somewhere they can’t tolerate so they will quit….

  • bannedquran20

    Nothing will stop him in building up the military. Incidentally neighbor, Mad Dog is not a person to mess around with.

  • Mundus

    Call out Lindsey Graham on this, including the fact he is taking Soros Money.

    • Lisa Garska Norwood

      If we could get rid of Soros, the Clinton’s, Obama, Graham, McCain, Pelosi, Warren, Louis, Kasich, Waters, and the Obama leftovers, 75% of this country’s problems would be gone.

      • ladywarrior

        There is an arrest warrant out in Russia for Soros……I say Putin and Trump could make a deal……three other countries have barred Soros from ever entering…..Soros has “dual citizenship” with America and Hungary…..right now he’s under investigation in Hungary….we need to start a Petition to Trump to take away Soros’ American citizenship based on treason and sedition….then dump him out of a plane in Russia…..

        • Lisa Garska Norwood

          I agree… why has our DOJ not arrested Soros? He is evil!! He just wants his NWO and will do all he can, with all of his billions, to try and get it.
          I thought Hungary barred him as well.
          These snowflake protesters have no idea who they are working for or the real reason they have been hired. The all-clad black clothed rioters are Soros’ little army. If my child was involved in those protests and riots, I would definitely be trying to stop Soros and his MoveOn organization.

          • ladywarrior

            In Hungary organizations that lead back to him are under investigation. In Russia there is an arrest warrant out for him because he was manipulating their currency….he has been barred from entering the Philippines for life,,and he broke the bank of England by shorting their money…..he’s not welcome there either….there is one other country that bans him, but I forget which one….
            …unfortunately for us he actually has a citizenship here which I believe Trump could cancel due to his seditious activities of funding rioters……

            I’d like to see Soros captured and dropped down in the middle of the night at the Kremlin….we’d never hear from him again…..unfortunately he has two sons he’s been training for decades to carry on his evil work…..

            Where is a rogue black ops team when you need them?

    • ladywarrior

      As is McLame and many others……

      • Lisa Garska Norwood

        That is another reason the Dems hate Trump… he will cut off that money coming from Soros’ organizations, that is lining thier pockets. The great thing about President Trump is, he has hob-knobbed with the Democrats in the far past and he knows how they work.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Remember the report that aired on TV about how fighter squadrons were so desperate for spare parts that they had resorted to “cannabalizing” them from the aircraft “bone yard” in AZ? And this is normal?

  • Hussars2016

    Root out the traitors one by one and replace with aggressive hitmen.
    Fire them all and let Allah sort them out.

  • James Stamulis

    Obama replaced over 250 top military leaders many of which were highly decorated heroes! Trump and Mattis should bring them back! BTW I used to rail against congress for doing and saying nothing while Obama did this. To me they are traitors for their silence.

  • Patk27

    If Matt is is serious about Obama’s people being the hold up on his ideas, why not name them to publicly shame them. Let us, the public, know who they are. Give them a public face. Don’t let them be anonymous.

    • Pastor C

      Like yesterday!

  • Pastor C

    If anyone doesn’t know, for certain, by now who and what Barry really was and is, they are complicit in the destructive role they played in the demise of our Republic.

    The clear and convincing evidence was there all along. They just chose to deliberately disregard it.

  • Obama IS-A-POS

    I don’t see why Obama APPOINTEES would be allowed to stand in the way. If they are APPOINTEES, then they can be fired, and should have already been fired on January 20. Maybe Mattis is using that flimsy excuse and he isn’t the right person for the job?

  • Joe1938

    The key operative here is “Obama Appointees”. Simple solution, get rid of them! Appoint others who will get the job done!

  • Cetansapa

    Every one of those obama appointees or hirelings in all agencies should be immediately rooted out and fired. Screw their civil service job protection and get rid of them now or they will continue to destroy our country just like they did under their treasonous former boss.

  • Dorrie

    Trump MUST clean out the Obama loyalists from government before he can get anything accomplished!

  • Pathfinder0100

    Ya know–It’s time for Trump to clean out the Obama appointees isn’t it??

  • Wayne Ville … a Deplorable

    Mattis needs to stop being a beta male and fire them!

  • Meg

    Can’t understand why all Obama people haven’t been removed.

  • Geppetto
  • InfidelCrusader

    The denizens of the swamp are quite comfortable there and have no intention of leaving it anytime soon. They’re going to have to be driven out and it’s not going to be easily done. They’ve had a long time to dig themselves in and they’re firmly entrenched. Draining a swamp is easier said than done.

  • joe1429

    Going to take a long time until all the fifth column is purged, especially with the dems slow rolling all trumps appointments

  • CreoleGumbo

    It’s easy to get rid of them. You simply eliminate “the job.” Then you rename the position and hire a new person. It is done all the time.
