Great start.

Here's to hoping he also gets all the Muslim Brotherhood rats that were infesting the government cheese under Obama.

I have respected you for years ... but your follow-up in-thread should be deleted and an apology is paramount.

ETA: I almost am left wondering if you've imbibed on the Snarl Scale this evening. I may not get past the disappointment you've dropped in my lap tonight.

1) Why should my comment be deleted?

2) What in the world is a "Snarl Scale?"

You know the sewer rats they like to hide where the dirt is.

People have forgotten all the CAIR members that Obama chose to surround himself with ties to the Muslim brotherhood.

Mark Berman with WaPo is tweeting that Ragsdale will remain Deputy Director after serving as acting director.

This is not a firing, but replacing the acting director Ragsdale with Homan and making Ragsdale deputy director.

He will want to know who else is betraying us, and he will act.

Betraying us? He fired an AG that was doing here job, she was not his personal attorney.

He has the right to replace people appointed by another administration, but if it because he is having a fit, it is another matter.

Her job is to uphold the law.
The president's order was lawful.
Yates was disrupting and refusing to follow the rule of law and deserved to be fired.

No she was not doing her job and her responsibility is to represent the US government. The AG is required by law to carry out executive orders.

Organization, Mission & Functions Manual: Attorney General, Deputy and Associate


The position of Attorney General was created by the Judiciary Act of 1789. In June 1870 Congress enacted a law entitled “An Act to Establish the Department of Justice.” This Act established the Attorney General as head of the Department of Justice and gave the Attorney General direction and control of U.S. Attorneys and all other counsel employed on behalf of the United States. The Act also vested in the Attorney General supervisory power over the accounts of U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.

The mission of the Office of the Attorney General is to supervise and direct the administration and operation of the Department of Justice, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Bureau of Prisons, Office of Justice Programs, and the U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals Service, which are all within the Department of Justice.

The principal duties of the Attorney General are to:

Represent the United States in legal matters.

Supervise and direct the administration and operation of the offices, boards, divisions, and bureaus that comprise the Department.

Furnish advice and opinions, formal and informal, on legal matters to the President and the Cabinet and to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the government, as provided by law.

Make recommendations to the President concerning appointments to federal judicial positions and to positions within the Department, including U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.

Represent or supervise the representation of the United States Government in the Supreme Court of the United States and all other courts, foreign and domestic, in which the United States is a party or has an interest as may be deemed appropriate.

Perform or supervise the performance of other duties required by statute or Executive Order.
