The Monday morning target rich posting topics

Secret Service Agent gets paid vacation for trashing DJT
The Secret Service Agent who said she wouldn’t take a bullet for Trump has been placed on paid leave, AKA vacation.  Here’s what the controversy is all about.  Secret Service agent Kerry O’Grady put this out on social media:

“As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act.  So I keep quiet and skirt the median. To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position.

“Despite the fact I am expected to take a bullet for both sides. But this world has changed and I have changed.

“And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be a disaster for this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with her.”

I do not know the rules are for Secret Service Agents with regard to these matters.  Ms. O’Grady apparently does know the rules.  She acknowledges that she is likely breaking the rules, but she is quite willing to do that to advance her political agenda. 

O’Grady’s acknowledgement that she is aware of the rules and chooses to violate them is pretty open and shut.  So the “investigation” should consist of two questions, “Were you aware of the posting?” and “Did you write it?”  An affirmative answer to either question ought to end O’Grady’s career with the Secret Service in my opinion. 

The not willing to take a Bullet for Trump is not the only problem with O’Grady’s post.  Her aforementioned disregard for the Hatch Act is problematic.  Even that is subordinate to this part of O’Grady’s post: “… the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here.”   Excuse me?  “…strong and amazing women and minorities…” that’s it?  Women and minorities?  That’s what O’Grady has boiled America down to – women and minorities.  White, straight, Christian men equal a zero on O’Grady’s ledger sheet.  And what is DJT? 

I think for the good of the Secret Service and the good of the country she needs to be very publicly fired.  Today.

The Muslim ban which isn’t
As often as not, the opposition party, which is the MSM, refers to DJT’s executive order on immigration as a “Muslim ban.”  Weird.  If the order is a “Muslim ban” why doesn’t affect the keepers of Islam’s two most holy sites - Saudi Arabia?  That’s akin to banning all things Catholic but excluding the Vatican from the order.  There are about 50 Muslim majority countries.  7 are affected by the ban.  So 14% is ban.  And that figure does not even take in to account millions of Muslims who do not reside in Muslim majority countries.  So, the vetting – not ban – affects even less of the total Muslim population.  Some ban. Trump needs to tighten it up a bit.

Is Obama regretting his “pen and phone” strategy?
Leaving the stammering and uh’s between every other word out, Obama once said, “If congress won’t act, I will.  I have a pen and a phone.”   But like most everything else with the affirmative action pass through president, it turns out Obama’s a piker when compared with someone with energy who knows what they are doing and how to wield those tools.

Compare the pace, scope of and reaction to DJT’s executive actions to Obama’s.   DJT is winning bigly.  Of course because right thinking people have jobs, responsibilities, respect for our fellow citizens and the law we couldn’t/wouldn’t go about breaking the law to disrupt our fellow citizens’ travel plans to protest an incompetent president’s executive orders.  We’d just go about electing a president who would repeal them.  

Just in time, celebrities stage another awards show tells us what to think
Thank goodness the celebrities had an awards show scheduled – when is one NOT scheduled – so we’d know what to think about DJT’s immigration ban, otherwise we’d be lost in the woods on what to think about this issue.    

So, after their near lockstep support of Hillary Clinton propelled her on to victory…no, wait, scratch that.  At the Screen Actors Guild Awards show last night we got wide range of opinions on DJT’s executive order…no, wait, scratch that.  Actually and very predictably, we got more of the same from the unhinged Lefty Lib Hollywood swells.  No doubt their very pubic whining has swayed millions upon millions of opinions just as it did in November…no, wait, scratch that.  No doubt their very public whining made them feel good about themselves and affirmed their opinion that they are sooooo much better than the rest of us.

And speaking of acting, did anyone see Head Azzclown Chuckles Scummer’s performance denouncing Trump’s order?  Total BS.  First of all, no one saw Chuckles shed a tear at the podium on 9-11.  He didn’t cry after the Boston bombing, the Pulse Night Club or San Bernardino shootings.  But the cry baby can fake tears over a temporary ban on people from countries that support or are overrun with terrorist and/or terrorist sympathizers. 

This isn’t about the temporary ban.  The ban is common sense.  It’s about DJT.  If Obama had instituted a 7 country ban similar to the 6 month ban he slapped on Iraq, no one would shed a tear or say a word about it. 

And what does Chuckles have to say or blubber about the fact that the list came form the Obama administration?      

There are many more topics to hit, but I'm out of time.

OK one last thing if you demand it
Where was the SAG, Lefty Lib, Demo Dope, Head Azzclown Chuckles Scummer's tears when tier hero B-HO banned Cuban refugees before exiting the White House?
