President Donald Trump has fired secretary of defense Mark Esper and replaced him with acting secretary Christopher C. Miller.

Trump tweeted the announcement Monday afternoon: “I am pleased to announce that Christopher C. Miller, the highly respected Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (unanimously confirmed by the Senate), will be Acting Secretary of Defense, effective immediately. Chris will do a GREAT job! Mark Esper has been terminated. I would like to thank him for his service.”

Esper’s firing has been a long time coming. Big League Politics reported back in June how Trump wanted to fire Esper over his handling (or lack thereof) of the George Floyd riots but was ultimately talked out of it.

Mark Esper also received heat from social conservatives and Trump supporters for introducing a new board on “diversity and inclusion in the military”:

“My goal is to effect an enterprise-wide, organizational and cultural shift,” Esper said in a video address to the Department of Defense (DOD).

Esper talked about the legitimacy of structural racism, and other tropes made up by cultural Marxists, showing how the Trump administration is folding to the left-wing mob.

“We are not immune to the forces of bias and prejudice — whether visible or invisible, conscious or unconscious,” Esper continued. “We know this bias burdens many of our Service members, and has direct and indirect impact on the experiences of our minority members, the cultural and ethnic diversity of the force, and representation in our officer ranks. These things have no place in our military; they have no place in our country.”

“Removing bias and prejudice in all its forms and ensuring equal opportunity and respect for all will make us stronger, more capable, and more ready as a joint force,” Esper added. “A diverse and inclusive DoD draws out and builds upon the best in each of us… it brings out the best in America.”

President Trump has become frustrated with Esper in recent weeks as he has undermined law and order throughout the nation, and has contemplated firing the man.

I say good riddance to Esper. Here’s hoping that acting secretary Christopher C. Miller can adequately hold down the fort while Trump seeks a full-time replacement.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
