Obama and his minions are really making a mess of things. It’s almost as if we can’t be bothered with ISIS because we are too busy trying to find the enemies within.
In fact Col. West stated earlier today that there are still numerous key positions that have yet to be filled in the White house. In the Department of Defense for example out of a total of 53 presidentially-appointed, the Senate- has only confirmed 1 position for Gen. James Mattis. The remaining 52 positions are being filled with a mixture of Obama’s little demon spawns heldover and civil servants.
This is a problem.
It is very clear that there is obstructionism by the Democrats in the Senate, and it appears that their priorities are not focused on what is best for America or her people. Not in the least bit.
Well, from the outside looking in, it walks, talks, and breathes like a monster of institutional gridlock in our government because of the mess Democrats are mindfully creating.
Now it appear that Donald Trump is going to be taking a businessman’s approach to fixing it though.
He’s anointing his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to head up a new task force called the “White House Office of American Innovation,” reporting directly to the president.
According to the Washington Post, this new office will operate as its own nimble power center within the West Wing and will report directly to Trump. Viewed internally as a SWAT team of strategic consultants, the office will be staffed by former business executives and is designed to infuse fresh thinking into Washington, float above the daily political grind and create a lasting legacy for a president still searching for signature achievements.
The innovation office has a particular focus on technology and data, and it is working with such titans as Apple chief executive Tim Cook, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Salesforce chief executive Marc Benioff and Tesla founder and chief executive Elon Musk. The group has already hosted sessions with more than 100 such leaders and government officials.
Just an idle question…are any of those folks…um, conservatives? Yeah, no.
Kushner’s ambitions for what the new office can achieve are grand. At least to start, the team plans to focus its attention on reimagining Veterans Affairs; modernizing the technology and data infrastructure of every federal department and agency; remodeling workforce-training programs; and developing “transformative projects” under the banner of Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan, such as providing broadband Internet service to every American.
This office will also focus on combating opioid abuse, as well as placing a regular emphasis for Trump on the campaign trail. The president later this week has plans to make a formal announcement on an official drug commission devoted to the problem that will be chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
So…truth be told, no one can really argue opioid abuse is the problem that needs attention here, but there are a few murmuring about the waste, fraud and abuse in all the existing programs.
We will see how this goes.
