In November, Pentagon General Counsel Paul C. Ney Jr. named Michael Ellis, then a White House official, to the position of general counsel at the NSA, a career civilian post at the government’s largest and most technologically advanced spy agency, The Post reported. He was selected after a competitive civil service competition. He has not taken up the job, however, as he needed to complete administrative procedures, including taking a polygraph test.

Miller gave NSA Director Paul Nakasone until 6 p.m. Saturday to install Ellis in the job, according to several people who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the matter’s sensitivity. The 6 p.m. deadline passed without Nakasone taking action. It was unclear Saturday evening what the Pentagon’s next move would be.

Now this is fishy as all get out. Ellis, who won’t take a polygraph, who scored lower then other applicants for the role, who was a white house lawyer on the national security council and previously was Devin Nunes’ lead counsel, is being attempted to be shoe horned into a position 4 days before Trump leaves office. This is highly irregular.

Why? Why is Stephen Miller demanding this now, of all times? Meanwhile the director of the NSA isn’t budging until he receives a legal opinion on this.

What do you make of this?

I think the only way we can resort to spreading the truth is when we watch Fox News and we copy and paste some links that we supply here on ATS to Fox News on YouTube.
Sometimes they have over I don't know 200,000 views and if you paste the little brief summary of what's happening the word gets out otherwise it'd be just a silent and deaf world most people will still be living in.

You should be worried about what is happening. While we are x fixated on the current political events, the EU countries are literally in some serious political upheavals, where are those topics btw?

Moves & counter-moves. The deadline was by 6pm EST yesterday. Pentagon; your move.
Nobody knows what the hell is going on outside the swamp.

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
— Karl Rove – as reported by Ron Suskind, NYTimes Magazine, Oct. 17, 2004

About this? No, this in the OP is a good thing.

Now, should we be worried that what ever is happening
on the ground to warrant 25K National Guard Troops
in DC and other capitol cities?

Most definitely, yes.

You're asking us keyboard warriors why the Director of the National Security Agency is refusing to follow a direct order from his boss?

If this bothers and worries you, then I would say it is a very, VERY good thing happening.

seeing as how Devin Nunes was right when all the idiot left was laughing at him and calling him names, and not letting him join in any reindeer games, I'd trust his association long before I would consider halting the laughter over an idiot leftie.

IMHO

The NSA is firmly embedded in the deep state swamp.
They don’t really answer to anyone and probably have enough dirt on high level politicians and government officials to make them compliant with their demands.

Now that the coup has succeeded all these nefarious alphabet agencies have free rein to do what they want with no accountability.

Taking bets on how soon Durham decides it's time to retire to his new beach home. Of course before he is able to show his work. But he has his legacy of finding the mastermind. Clinesmith. Well done hero. Take a bow.
