LadyboyDACA, Kevin McAleenan, Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has come out of the closet, he is now quite open about being a #NeverTrump Democrat infiltrator and saboteur. Personnel is policy, and LadyboyDACA is the policy of failing at the border. Your correspondent called if from the first, he was #DeepState operative. Who was protecting him, I know not. But he is part of a string of failures in the top spot at DHS. And now he is in the open. He was always sabotaging President Trump.
LadyboyDACA Deep State Saboteur
Nearly six months after taking over the Department of Homeland Security as acting secretary, Kevin McAleenan has guided the United States out of a crisis at the southern border, but he also says he has lost command of the public messaging from his department and lacks some of the authority he was promised when he took the job.
Increasingly isolated within the administration and overshadowed by others who are more effusive in their praise for President Trump, McAleenan said he retains “operational” control of DHS — mainly the ability to coordinate work at the border among U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, and Citizenship and Immigration Services.
But he acknowledged that he is losing the battle to keep DHS, which he views as a neutral law enforcement agency, from being used as a powerful tool for a partisan immigration agenda.
“What I don’t have control over is the tone, the message, the public face and approach of the department in an increasingly polarized time,” he said in an interview with The Washington Post. “That’s uncomfortable, as the accountable, senior figure.”
McAleenan was referring to recent DHS appointees who won their jobs after advocating aggressively for the president on television: Mark Morgan, the acting head of CBP, and Ken Cuccinelli, the acting USCIS director, who is rumored as a potential replacement for McAleenan.
[Acting Homeland Security Chief Frustrated And Isolated — Even As He Delivers What Trump Wants At The Border, by Nick Miroff, WaPo, October 1, 2019]
Note the author, Miroff, to whom LadyboyDACA is close. So close, LadyboyDACA leaked information about U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids to Miroff in an attempt to sabotage immigration enforcement.
And don’t believe the hype about giving Trump what he wants at the border. It was LadyboyDACA who, as head of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) lost control of the border by first recommending prosecution of asylum seekers, then refused to continue the program when it was working, then ended the program by slyly refusing to defend it in public. Now LadyboyDACA is claiming success with the problem he and LadyDACA created in the first place.
Perhaps the most symbolic aspect of LadyboyDACA’s betrayal of the President and even the law itself is his refusal to deal with reality of words, and their import. In immigration law persons are separated into two categories, citizens and/or nationals on one hand and aliens on the other. In the law all persons not citizens or nationals are aliens. LadyboyDACA has a fundamental objection to that most significant definition in all immigration law, and, by implication, LadyboyDACA has a fundamental problem with the very idea of American citizenship.
McAleenan avoids the term “illegal aliens,” speaking instead of “migrants” and “vulnerable families.” Though “alien” is a U.S. legal term, McAleenan said the way people hear it carries “political, emotional and racial” overtones.
“I think the words matter a lot,” McAleenan said. “If you alienate half of your audience by your use of your terminology, it’s going to hamper your ability to ever win an argument.”
No, LadyboyDACA, it is not political, but legal, that we use alien to describe, well, aliens. They are not us, they are alien. If you don’t understand that, then you should not be in your position.
Which leads us to President Trump’s ongoing problem. He just does not get it that there are people in his Administration, like LadyboyDACA, as well as Christopher Wray and Gina Haspel who are actively sabotaging his Administration. For God’s sake, Haspel was working with John Brennan on creating the whole Russiagate fiasco and is undoubtedly behind the current Ukraine nonsense.
It sadly may be too late for many personnel reforms, though there is no reason not to publicly fire LadyboyDACA, Wray, and Haspel. Personnel is policy. Kris Kobach and Tom Homan are standing by.
