Six White House staffers were marched out of the building on Thursday after they failed national security background checks. Politico reported that the unlucky half-dozen included one who was the president´s director of scheduling. Caroline Wiles is also the daughter of Susan Wiles, a former chief of staff to Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the Trump campaign´s director in Florida. Politico reported that Wiles has told friends she will be reassigned to a job in the Treasury Department. It´s unknown who the other five dismissed aides are. One White House source told DailyMail.com it´s common knowledge that two of them

Good! Do everything democRats are going to do, just do it first! If you´re hiding something it will be found sooner or later. Find it first to eliminate liabilities later on down the road.

No kidding #2! There was none of this breathless reporting over every single thing that happened in the Obama regime. How many of them were marched out for failed national security tests? They were probably kept by Obama because to reject them would have been offensive, or racist, or whatever choice of the day.

Did they, #2? Seems to my somewhat iffy memory that many of them didn´t, but nothing was done about it. And remember when cabinet nominee after nominee turned out to be a tax dodger, and only a couple of them were disqualified for it?

The enemedia never pressed those scandals more than one cycle of the news, and then it was on to other stories.... oh, look! A squirrel!

This is very typical of what happens in trying to fill federal jobs at every level. People are selected for the jobs and then the background check comes back. Something as benign as credit problems or the kind of tax disputes that result from divorces can scupper a federal secretarial or engineering job. It happens every day. I´m sure the same thing happened many times in the Obama White House but was not reported by the slavering, rabid media. Nothing to see here, move along.

As someone who went through a TS/SCI background check, if you had something in your past you admitted to it and YOU DIDN´T LIE about it.

If you lie about past drug use in college, they will find out and disqualify you. It is not about whether you smoked dope or did a line at a frat party. It is whether you will be truthful.

I guess people´s memory are not what they used to be. Back when Billy Jeff Clinton, or as I call him, the Hillbilly Whorehopper, back when over half his nominations and hires could not pass drug screening, he changed hiring practices and hired all of them under some other classification that did not require any urine, hair, or blood samples. Creepozoids all.

By definition, the President has a security clearance. He also has the prerogative of overriding the decision that someone is a security risk. Along with Obama, I doubt Bill Clinton could have passed a security investigation.

I´m glad PRESIDENT Trump isn´t exerting his authority to keep them in his Whitehouse

I don´t believe the POTUS is required to take or pass this security screening. All other White House positions require passing the background check. I suppose family members not in official positions need not take the test, else Mooch, Malia & Grandma might have failed.

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Michael Wilner    Original Article

TOULOUSE – Under tight security, the people of France will begin voting for a new president on Sunday after debating for more than a year what the future of their country should look like. The options before them offer starkly different visions and reveal deep fault lines within French society over issues of race, nationalism and their country’s role in forging an inclusive and united Europe. Four candidates lead the pack – a democratic socialist, a far-right nativist, an establishment republican and a young, independent newcomer. Those candidates – Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Marine Le Pen, François Fillon and Emmanuel Macron, respectively –

But Die Welt’s Klaus Gieger claims the far right firebrand will send shockwaves through the bloc even if she loses the election.

FBI Director James Comey distrusted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch because he believed she helped play down the investigation into Hillary Clinton´s private server, according to a new report. Comey ended up plunging the FBI into the center of the 2016 presidential election when he reopened the investigation into Clinton´s emails just weeks before the election. The New York Times revealed that Comey handled the investigations into Clinton and the president-elect at the time, Donald Trump, very differently. According to several government officials, Comey rewrote the script when it came down to the Clinton case, mainly because the FBI believed she would win

A gunman, who shot three police officers on the Champs-Elysee, killing one, was later claimed by ISIS through its media wing Amaq as an Islamic State "fighter" they dubbed "the Belgian." French Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told France´s Europe 1 radio Friday that it´s too early to tell what role the second suspect played, if any, in the attack.

The American multi-billionaire, the world’s richest man, was accused of ‘lecturing’ Britain last night after telling Theresa May not to slash the country’s bloated foreign aid budget – claiming that doing so would diminish Britain’s influence in the world and mean many more lives lost in Africa.

The reporter was describing the ´tension´ in the French capital following an attack that left one policeman dead and two seriously injured. Then a sound like gunshots could be heard, which led to police shouting at the journalist and her cameraman to run for cover. At the start of the video, the reporter says: ´People in central Paris were too scared to leave their homes, the tension is palpable.´ After the loud bangs, she says: ´A sudden noise where we were was mistaken for gunfire and

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr

President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement.

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School.

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a

This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law

Former President Barack Obama may not be making an endorsement in France´s upcoming presidential election, but his former deputy national security adviser is warning that a win for right-wing leader Marine Le Pen would be "devastating." "A Le Pen victory would be devastating to any mainstream definition of US interests and values since WWII," Ben Rhodes said in a tweet Saturday. (Tweet) Rhodes´ warning is quite a bit more drastic than the measured statement former President Barack Obama´s spokesman put out last week about his conversation with another French candidate, Emmanuel Macron. While Obama did not endorse Macron, spokesman Kevin
