Democrats and Media attack Trump’s choice of Richard Grenell for Acting Director of National Intelligence

Grenell is viewed as too “loyal” to Trump, but after all the mischief by Obama holdovers, it’s about time.

Richard Grenell made history when President Donald Trump appointed him as the U.S. Ambassador to Germany because he was the first openly gay man to serve at such a high level in an administration.

Grenell made history again on Wednesday night when Trump picked him as his acting Director of National intelligence.

Grenell is the first openly gay person to serve on a president’s Cabinet.

The Appointment

Grenell is loyal to Trump. Considering all the headaches caused by holdovers from President Barack Obama, that’s not a bad thing.

It is not a crime to appoint people loyal to you. Trump is not the first one to do this.

But in all honesty, Grenell’s loyalty lies with America. Grenell used his voice to pressure Germany and other NATO allies to cough up more money for their defenses.

Grenell often visits memorials to Jewish victims of the Nazi regime with survivors. He is an ardent supporter of Israel and does his best to make sure nobody forgets the horrors of the Holocaust.

Despite all of this Grenell has rubbed people the wrong way:

Earlier this month, just weeks after Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps fired numerous ballistic missiles at U.S. troops in Iraq and downed a civilian airliner, Grenell sharply criticized Germany for a planned celebration of the founding of Iran’s Islamic Republic. His reaction was in sharp contrast to the more docile attitude toward Iran from other top Western officials, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“Germany has a moral responsibility to say to Iran very firmly and clearly that it is unacceptable to deny basic human rights to your people, or kill protesters in the streets or push gay people off buildings. Celebrating the regime’s ongoing existence sends the opposite message,” Grenell told Fox News.

And, Grenell has defended Trump’s tweeting habit, even as Attorney General Bill Barr has said Trump’s posts make it “impossible” for him to do his job at the Justice Department.

“It makes my job so much easier,” Grenell told Fox News host Neil Cavuto. “We as diplomats have to be at the forefront of trying to solve problems. You don’t want to have a war, you want to avoid war, which means diplomats need to be able to talk.”

“If you want to solve problems, you better have diplomats who are really tough — diplomats who know how to push and know how to cajole … so, I like having a president who’s willing to be very tough.”

Reactions

You would think Grenell’s appointment would bring joy to the left who insist that gays’ rights have greatly diminished under the Trump administration.

Nope.

FOX: First openly gay cabinet member appointed as DNI

CNN: Trump loyalist appointed as DNI

Good. America needs more loyal people in positions of importance.

Fen’s Law: “The Left doesn’t truly believe in the things they lecture about to the rest of us.”

Coded: “He’s too loyal to Trump!”

Decoded: “He won’t help us destroy Trump!”

Look at the results of all of Obama’s intelligence experience; it went to spying on American journalists and presidential candidates.

Make Flapper had 50 years experience, and still be was involved in efforts to destroy our great nation. We elected the President to appoint judges and cabinet officials that agree with his views and the Constitution!

And the smears and slander will start in 5..4..3….

I’ll take “Loyalty” over “Identity Politics” any day of the week.

What a weird planet.

Grenell is the first openly gay person to serve on a president’s Cabinet.

Even though politically I’m slightly to the right of Otto von Bismarck, I don’t give a hoot about this. I don’t even consider it worth mention.

Grenell is loyal to Trump.

Now that is important.

    It’s more than just loyalty to PDJT: it’s loyalty to the Constitution and an oath of office.

    After all, one could be loyal to OGM barack obama, couldn’t they?

    Same here. I don’t give a fig.

    Why no one would have even known it I think, except for the Democrat Party MSM trying to upset “We the People” patriots.

Who cares what these corrupt swine have to say about anything?

They need to be shunned like the poison they are.

Obama had less executive and foreign policy experience than Grenell and he was elected president – and to top it off Obama is still a closeted….heterosexual.

yours truly,
Reggie Love

Clearly too intelligent to be chief of National Intelligence.

“Democrats and Media” ahh, but I repeat myself… Grenell is loyal to Trump. The rest of the bureaucracy is loyal to Obama

So, he’s not loyal to Democrats, Journolists, social media platforms, and 1%ers foreign and domestic? Americans, first? Competent, qualified, too? Catastrophic.

If he can clean up the fetid cesspool that is the intel agencies, and scrub the foul shit stains left by Clapper and Brennan, then he’s exactly the right pick.

Declassify all of General Flynn’s requested Brady material. Declassify Rod Rosenstein’s authorizing memos to Mueller. Declassify Sundance’s list of material in need of declassification.

Surely the first requirement of anyone serving the president is to be loyal to him.

They hate him, and he’s gay. Must mean because he’s gay. Bigots. (This is how it works, right?)

Sign. Again, making their poing by moving the goal posts. It’s like they don’t have anything else.

— NI, in White House is there to shepherd and aggregate the intelligence orgs *for* the president, not be beholden to them.

— DNI of course works for the president. That why the whole org is there.

— NI function under Pres Obama’s second term nearly doubled in size. Any “reductions” are vs a size Pres Obama didn’t think he needed for >3/4 of his tenure. (It’s almost like he was stuffing the apparat with place holders to continue after he was gone. Naaah.)

And, of course, the NI, and DNI wouldn’t be needed if the 17 agencies were doing their jobs, or communicating & coordinating with their consumers and each other.

When did the chattering class apparatchiks shift their sponsorship from the elected n titled, to the embeded administrative state? And why?
