General Kelly OUT At The White House

Published

General John Kelly will no longer be White House chief of staff.

The New York Times reports: “John F. Kelly, the retired Marine general tapped as chief of staff by President Trump last year to bring order to his chaotic White House, will leave the job by the end of the year, Mr. Trump said on Saturday, the latest departure from the president’s inner circle after a bruising midterm election for his party. Mr. Trump, speaking with reporters on the White House lawn before departing for the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia, said that he would announce a replacement for Mr. Kelly, perhaps on an interim basis, in the next day or two. “John Kelly will be leaving — I don’t know if I can say ‘retiring,’” the president said. “But he’s a great guy. John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year.” The leading candidate to replace Mr. Kelly is Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff and a Republican political operative, who possesses the kind of savvy about campaigns that Mr. Trump has craved. Mr. Kelly, a career military officer before becoming Mr. Trump’s first homeland security secretary, lacked such experience.”

Nick Ayers seems like a decent enough guy but if he tries to freeze out MAGA people in favor of Pence-wing apologists, that would also be a problem. So, he shouldn’t do that.

The moderate-minded general Kelly first inflamed President Trump supporters when, as DHS chief, he made it clear to the Border Patrol union that there would never be a wall. Steve Bannon ignored warnings about Kelly from people in the know — as he often did during that period — and embraced Kelly as chief of staff. Soon, Bannon was gone. To their consternation, Bannon’s enemies Jared Kushner and Ivanka did not mesh well with Kelly, either.

Kelly is a decent man, and Trump supporters appreciate his service to our country. But we also need a Wall, and we need some hard-charging entrepeneurial people in that White House who have a better vision of what American nationalism means in an age in which a criminal Deep State is clinging to power and the entire corporate mainstream media is against the president.

Also, Kelly’s successor at DHS Kirstjen Nielsen is not exactly doing a bang-up job, considering the number of migrants who have made it over the “fence” at our Wall-less southern border.

President Trump’s relationship with the military is a good thing, but General Flynn was supposed to be the closest general to the president, advising Trump on how to save the Country. Flynn got bounced by the Crossfire Hurricane conspirators. Almost two years have gone by and the Republicans in Congress and Fox News have done a lot of complaining — based on actual reporting from the independent media about how Bad the Deep State situation is — but the GOP has not actually done anything to help out.

Anyway, let’s hope Kelly gets replaced by somebody more MAGA-oriented, and, for the record, we at BLP — which is run by me with no input from anyone more famous — have no beef with General Kelly and we wish him well.

President Donald Trump Reduced Afghanistan War Casualties by 98 Percent Compared to Obama’s First Term

This is what “America First” foreign policy is all about.

President Donald Trump’s foreign policy achievements have largely been hidden from the public, with the fake news media and Democrats preferring to focus on fake Russian collusion stories rather than highlighting the president’s efforts to get the troops out of harm’s way.

Libertarian-leaning Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) pointed out the facts regarding the president’s foreign policy record, showing that Trump’s foreign policy in Afghanistan has resulted in a sharp reduction in casualties in America’s longest war:

The majority of Obama’s casualties came in his first term, when he doubled down on the Afghan war with a troop surge. He sent more troops into harm’s way without anything to show for it except for more blood. There were an incredible 2,196 troops killed in Afghanistan during Obama’s first term, and he was given a Nobel Peace Prize before his brutal policies ever really took effect.

Big League Politics reported earlier this month when President Trump pledged to bring all U.S. troops home from Afghanistan by Christmas:

President Trump issued a surprise announcement on the American military presence in Afghanistan, stating that all troops would be removed from the country by Christmas in a Wednesday evening tweet.

The announcement represents a new imperative to end the American presence in Afghanistan, which has qualified as the lengthiest war in American history.

Deep State bureaucrats have consistently fought to stonewall President Trump’s initiative to end American involvement in the failed state once and for all.

Afghanistan has been made the beneficiary of billions of dollars in American foreign aid and military assistance, but the nation’s government is still largely unable to stand on its own two feet. The Afghan Taliban continues to govern large swathes of the country, and regularly carries out terrorist attacks that inflict significant casualties on the Afghan Army.

Joe Biden is largely silent on Afghanistan, stating that he’ll end the war but clarifying that he only plans to return home the “majority” of service members stationed in the country. President Trump has already withdrawn thousands of American military personnel deployed to the country. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has been overseeing efforts to reach a final peace agreement with the Taliban in which they’d recognize the country’s feeble government.

The leaked Afghanistan Papers have revealed an enduring pattern of misconduct and deception on the part of senior government officials, who regularly sugarcoated the progress that the military was making in installing a Jeffersonian-style democracy in the troubled central Asian nation. Afghanistan is bitterly divided along sectarian, tribal and religious lines, and the region’s involvement in the decline of the Soviet Union and the British Empire have led some to style it as the “graveyard of empires.”

President Trump has made great progress toward putting the troops first despite tremendous institutional impediments from the military-industrial complex. He is clearly the peace candidate, running against the reckless imperial foreign policy of Obama/Biden, on the ballot for this election.
