National Security Council leakers worried Trump might arrest them


If you're a left leaning member of the National Security Council and you're unhappy with the duly elected president, what do you do? Why, leak details of classified discussions and pending operations to the media, of course!

In a NYT article, which itself is based on NSC leaks, leakers try to portray the NSC in chaos, but in the process of attempting to do so, reveal the scope of their disloyalty.

These are chaotic and anxious days inside the National Security Council, the traditional center of management for a president’s dealings with an uncertain world. Some staff members have turned to encrypted communications to talk with their colleagues, after hearing that Mr. Trump’s top advisers are considering an “insider threat” program that could result in monitoring cellphones and emails for leaks.

Now, why would NSC staffers who are talking with their colleagues, presumably about affairs of state, feel the need to encrypt their conversations from the man they work for? I think the implication is clear--that these conversations are about undermining and leaking information to harm the Trump administration.

Nervous staff members recently met late at night at a bar a few blocks from the White House and talked about purging their social media accounts of any suggestion of anti-Trump sentiments.

Why would they need to do that? Past anti-Trump sentiments are not against the law. But leaking classified information is. I think these leakers are trying to keep a lower profile to avoid being caught.

Last week, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was exploring whether the Navy could intercept and board an Iranian ship to look for contraband weapons possibly headed to Houthi fighters in Yemen.

White House officials said that [the operation was cancelled]... because news of the impending operation leaked, a threat to security that has helped fuel the move for the insider threat program.

This is leakers in action. But instead of writing an article about their illegality, this is only mentioned in passing, as part of the Times' main interest, in portraying the NSC as being in chaos. What amazes me is how the Times doesn't seem to think revealing bureaucrats leaking classified information is even a problem; they are so disconnected from reality that they think anything, including disregarding national security laws, is justified, all in the pursuit of Trump.

[Some NSC staffers have left but] Many of those who remain, who see themselves as apolitical civil servants, have been disturbed by displays of overt partisanship. At an all-hands meeting about two weeks into the new administration, Ms. McFarland told the group it needed to “make America great again,” numerous staff members who were there said. New Trump appointees are carrying coffee mugs with that Trump campaign slogan into meetings with foreign counterparts, one staff member said.

Why is it partisan to have a mug featuring the slogan of the President... in his own White House? When Obama was president, do you think staff avoided pro-Obama slogans? I'm sure they didn't. These people are just appalled to be confronted with direct evidence that Trump is their president. It shows that they don't have either the temperament or the loyalty to do their jobs.

Leakers should be investigated, located, prosecuted, and put in Chelsea Manning's old cell--the one without the urinal. They should also be denied makeup privileges and not allowed to preen.

Federal workers planning sabotage of the Trump administration


Conservative talk show host Mark Levin is very fond of saying that when liberals win elections, they run the country, and when they lose elections, they also run the country. That's because liberals control much of the media, judiciary, and especially the bureaucracy regardless of who wins the election.

The smartest way to draft an executive order regarding entry restrictions


President Trump is going to issue a new executive order regarding entry restrictions after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a temporary restraining order on his original temporary ban on entry from seven Muslim countries. There are many ways to redraft his EO, but I am going to focus on two of the smartest strategies.

Ivanka Trump vs Michelle Obama on Magazine Covers


We have a new first lady in town. And no I don't mean Melania Trump. It's clear that Ivanka Trump has become the de facto first lady, for publicity purposes. And we all know that a major role for first ladies is to grace the cover of magazines. Michelle Obama appeared on so many of them, that some people rushed to their ophthalmologist's office with eye strain. But Ivanka has already appeared on her share of covers too. So the important question arises, who is more charismatic in print?

President Obama was criticized by Republicans, and rightly so I believe, for attending a church lead by Jeremiah Wright, who repeatedly criticized the United States for being, in his own opinion, an evil terrorist nation. People wondered, how could Obama sit through sermons like that, year after year? Didn't that mean that at the very least Obama didn't have any serious problems with what Wright was saying?

Which is better, a president who criticizes the police, or Nordstrom's?


President Trump is being criticized for making critical comments of Nordstrom's, which just dropped his daughter's product lines. Nordstrom claims they are dropping her products due to economic reasons, but it is a big coincidence that Nordstrom, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Neiman Marcus and other retailers are dropping Trump products just as President Trump took office. The fact is that Nordstrom's and other stores fears pressure from the Left for selling Trump branded products and so are proactively caving in to pressure. One wonders if President Obama had sold an Obama branded marijuana cigarette, if stores in California and Colorado would be as quick to drop his product line when he became president. Probably not.

Trump should disregard clearly unconstitutional court orders


The federal courts are making a power grab early in President Trump's term. Trump's executive order, a temporary entry ban from seven dangerous countries, was modest in scope, and had ample precedent: Obama had temporarily stopped immigration from Iraq, and Jimmy Carter from Iran. Historically the President has been given a very wide latitude when it comes to matters of national security, and the decision of who to let into our country is clearly a national security matter.
