Justified, But Cruel.

The President had every reason to fire Andrew McCabe. He should have done it weeks ago, though. Now it's cruel.

President Trump's firing of Andrew McCabe a day or so before he could retire was entirely justified. An Inspector General report is forthcoming noting McCabe's misdeeds. The Department of Justice and FBI have both suggested he needs to be disciplined. In his letter eviscerating the President for his firing, McCabe notes that he told James Comey about his leaks to the media. Comey, however, denied authorizing any leaks in his testimony before Congress. This all calls James Comey back into question.

Many of the people defending Andrew McCabe and attacking President Trump for the firing would undoubtedly be calling for the heads of any Republican who behaved similarly. The mass anger and hysteria from the left needs to be kept in that perspective. This is partisan gamesmanship on both sides.

Concurrently, I think firing McCabe now was unnecessarily cruel. McCabe should have been fired weeks ago. The Inspector General report is not yet out in detail, but we have had the gist of it for weeks. We have had the Department of Justice and FBI information for weeks. We have had the information since before McCabe decided to take all his vacation time and wait for retirement.

McCabe should have been fired then. Stringing any person along until the very end is unnecessarily cruel. Even justified actions can be cruel, and I think this was. The President's timing could have been better. Frankly, the President would have had more people on the center-right defending him had he done it when word initially broke. By letting McCabe step aside, take vacation, and count down to the final hours before retirement is like a cat toying with a mouse. It's gross to watch, even if it is justified.

I had four other candidates I favored before Trump. I questioned his personal background and people being jealous of his his wealth. Neither Donald or Bill are saints, I considered it a draw on moral issues. Hillary put up with Bill for her own political gain. I like Trump's: Supreme Court and other court appointments; I like the tax cut; I like his appointments for EPA Interior, Education, HUD Agriculture, Energy; appointing Haley as U.N. ambassador; ;trying to reform the immigration policy; letting most people keep their religious values, trying to do away Obama care, keeping the second amendment; cutting regulation; job creation, and other items. This has nothing to do with Fox news. Putin obtained information from the insecure server. Hillary sold uranium to Putin. Hillary and Obama did not back up the red line in the Middle East.

I was not a Trump supporter, either, but none of that matters to the conscientious objectors who reign on these pages. The stakes are high, but while the war for liberty rages, they sit on the sidelines, and train their fire on Trump rather than progressives and the establishment types they once railed against. The FBI is not pure. They are not above reproach. Original sin dogs them just as it does us.

Hillary sold Uranium to Putin. Thanks for proving my Fox News point. And I bet Obama is a muslim born in Kenya right? Good lord. That is exactly my point. Trump has no principles. Any Republican who supports him also has no principles. Tariffs. Take the guns, due process later. NAFTA. I do not know what is worse, the fact that you believe everything you see on Fox News or the fact that you are either too lazy or dumb to factcheck it yourself. The Uranium One nonsense is easy to refute. Seth Rich conspiracy bs is also. The dumb shit POTUS watches cable news, golfs, and tweets all day. And its all lies. Fake news. Fake news. Then he proves it was true. LOL. We are a joke and laughingstock to the rest of the world.

Ditto for me!
But the so-called "conscientious objectors" don't merely sit on the sidelines, they actively oppose Trump, his policies, and America itself! Their self-proclaimed piety is denied by their anti stance!
Trump's style is obnoxious! Their philosophy is more so!! HYPOCRITES!
