Well, This Should Make You Feel Secure

With Donald Trump in charge of keeping us safe.  From Gizmodo, via Little Green Footballs, this comforting news from our take-charge President:

"Trump has ordered Under Secretary for Nuclear Security Frank Klotz and his deputy, Madelyn Creedon—both Obama appointees—to leave their posts, even if it means no one is in charge of maintaining the country’s nuclear weapons. According to our Energy Department source, Trump’s team has yet to nominate anyone to succeed them. Since both positions require Senate confirmation, if could be months before their chairs are filled. And the vacancies may extend beyond the leadership roles.

“There are scores more appointees within the department,” our source told us. “Secretarial and administration appointments that don’t require Senate confirmation, mostly performing policy, liaison, and strategic advisory capacities in support of the agency they’re at. They serve at the will of the head of their agency. Those people are, theoretically, also out on inauguration day unless otherwise directed, which hasn’t happened yet to my knowledge.”

So not only is Trump planning on dismantling our intelligence services, but he is firing the people in charge of nuclear security, with no replacements in sight. This is not merely the action of an out of control, narcissistic and impulsive lunatic.  A systematic pattern is emerging here.

When (if ever) will the mainstream press and the American people wake up to the fact that this treasonous bastard is deliberately setting about to destroy the country's ability to defend itself against the brutal, murderous foreign dictator that put him in office?

This is so far beyond anything that has ever happened in the history of this country, that I doubt that most people will ever be able to wrap their minds around its enormity, before it is too late.  Well, they'd better wake up and face reality, or we are all screwed.

This is what we get when we elect a president who doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground.
