(Washington, DC — January 31, 2017) – Channeling President Richard Nixon (R-CA), Donald Trump (R-NY) fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates last night.
Meet the new crook, same as the old crook.
On October 20, 1973, Nixon, neck-deep in the Watergate scandal, ordered the firing of Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, who was acting against the president’s wishes. The job fell to Attorney General Elliot Richardson, who refused to fire Cox, instead resigning.
Then the job fell to Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus, who also refused to fire Cox. He, too, resigned.
In the end, it was up to Solicitor General Robert Bork to fire Cox, which he did. Bork’s decision at least in part cost him an appointment to the United States Supreme Court in 1987.
Fast-forward more than 43 years after the Saturday Night Massacre – Watergate has been replaced with MuslimBangate.
Claiming Yates, who was appointed during the Obama (D-IL) administration, had “betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States,” Chancellor Squirrelhead fired her on January 30. Her crime? Ordering lawyers from the Justice Department not to defend his unconstitutional immigration Executive Order.
In her defense, Yates claimed:
- “At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the Executive Order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the Executive Order is lawful. For as long as I am the Acting Attorney General, the Department of Justice will not present arguments in defense of the Executive Order, unless and until I become convinced that it is appropriate to do so.
Attorney Dana Boente has been appointed in Yates’ place and has vowed to carry out the Executive Order. He will serve until racist nominee Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is eventually confirmed as the next attorney general.
Chancellor Squirrelhead signed the Executive Order “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” on January 27. It bans immigrants, in the name of terrorism, from the following Muslim-majority countries:
The Executive Order does not ban immigrants from Muslim-majority countries whose terrorist citizens have attacked America and killed Americans – such as Saudi Arabia, which sent 15 of the 19 September 11, 2001, hijackers to kill 3,000 people – are exempt from the ban because Chancellor Squirrelhead has personal business interests in such countries.
Republicans insist the Executive Order does not amount to a “religious test” for Muslims. They are wrong.
“Paul Ryan (R-WI) is going around telling his supporters that the whole “religious test” thing is nonsense,” said a political insider, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Eddie Munster is wrong. It is a religious test, and since most of Eddie Munster’s followers are poor excuses for Christians, they’re fine with singling out other religious groups.
“And no one has heard from Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on the issue. I guess Turtlehead is keeping inside his shell.”
Aside from the flagrant Constitutional violation, many view this Executive Order as the first of many steps Chancellor Squirrelhead is taking towards fulfilling one of his most odious campaign promises: Establishing a Muslim registry in the United States.
Not that he can keep his own facts straight.
On November 19, 2015, presidential candidate Squirrelhead Donald vowed to implement such a registry during a campaign stop in Newton, IA:
- “I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.”
- “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems.”
- When asked whether Muslims would be legally obligated to sign into the database: “They have to be – they have to be.”
Asked later how such a database would be different from Jews having to register in Nazi Germany, Squirrelhead Donald said, “You tell me,” at least four times before moving on.
And yet, on November 16, 2016, Jason Miller, a member of the Trump Transition Team of Terror (TTTT), denied that President-elect Squirrelhead Donald had ever spoken of a Muslim registry or Muslim database:
- “President-elect Trump has never advocated for any registry or system that tracks individuals based on their religion, and to imply otherwise is completely false.”
“This is all frightening because now you have a schizophrenic in the White House who can’t remember his positions from one day to the next,” said a political operative, speaking on condition of anonymity. “And that’s on top of having an adulterous, anti-Asian, anti-Catholic, anti-disabled, anti-Hispanic, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-obesity, anti-Semitic, anti-veteran, homophobic, Islamophobic, hypocritical, misogynistic, narcissistic, paranoid, pathologically lying, pro-Klan, psychopathic, racist, small-membered, sociopathic, treasonous, xenophobic bully in the White House. Not good news.”
“This is even more frightening because of Stephen Bannon, Chancellor Squirrelhead’s anti-Semitic Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor,” said a political scientist, speaking on condition of anonymity. They’ve instituted the Muslim ban. You have Chancellor Squirrelhead as a candidate not realizing that what he’s doing is equal to what Nazi Germany did to the Jews. You have Bannon and his ALT-RIGHT scumbags, which includes the KKK, who want to expel the Jews from the United States. What’s to stop that [explicative] Bannon from creating a database for Jews? Nothing.
“You always say it can’t happen here – until after it has happened here.”
