Trump Says He Will Not Attend Yhe White-house CorrespondentsDinner

Why should he?  Many of the guests will be from CNN, MSNBC, , CBS, etc
that will be there only to insult the President.  They are not worth his time and effort to appear.  Most of those in attendance have shown their inability to accept the will of the people by electing Mr. Trump to lead the country.

Mark Morgan Border Patrol Chief

Border Patrol Chief Out Day After Trump Border Fence Decree

Mark Morgan, the Border Patrol chief who backed former President Barack Obama's plans to safeguard some illegal immigrants from deportation, is out at the agency on the heels of President Donald Trump's announcement of an ambitious plan to build a massive wall at the Mexican border and hire 5,000 Border Patrol agents.
Morgan told employees on a phone call Thursday morning that he was not resigning but had been asked to leave by the Trump administration, Reuters reported, citing a Department of Homeland Security official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
The border patrol union, which endorsed Trump's presidential campaign and applauded his executive order, had been critical of Morgan.
CCustoms and Border Protection said Thursday that Morgan's last official day in office will
 be Tuesday
A U.S. official and a former official told The Associated Press that Border Patrol agents were told Thursday that Morgan was no longer with the agency.
The U.S. official wasn't authorized to discuss the move before a public announcement and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The former official asked not to be identified before a government announcement.
Morgan was named to the post in June and took office in October. The former FBI agent briefly led the internal affairs department at the Border Patrol's parent agency before heading the agency of roughly 20,000 agents.
Morgan leaves office only seven months after being named the first outsider to lead the agency since it was founded in 1924.

During that visit Trump singled out the union's president, Brandon Judd, while pointedly avoiding mention of Morgan. Judd served on Trump's transition team.
The union was incensed when Morgan told a Senate hearing Dec. 1, in response to a question from Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., that he supported a comprehensive immigration overhaul, which is often interpreted to include a path to citizenship for people who are in the country illegally. Morgan clarified his remarks in a note to Border Patrol staff the following week.
"I want to be clear what my position is regarding immigration reform," Morgan wrote. "I do not, as some have suggested, support what is often referred to as 'blanket amnesty.' This assertion could not be further from my position. I encourage everyone to listen to my testimony."
Despite pressure from the union, many agency officials said Morgan appeared to embrace the job. Less than a week ago, the first message on his new Twitter account read, "Chief Morgan here -- excited to use this account to share the latest news and events of the #BorderPatrol with followers."

Closing Out 2016

Presidential Election

Needless to say 2016 has been a wild and exciting year.  Donald Trump handily beat Hillary Clinton in the Presidential race.  We will all be better off in the long run.  She had nothing new to offer and the questions surrounding Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation and questions of criminality all came into play to bring her downfall.  Another major question was her health issues – too many public breakdowns.  In addition she campaigned as though the election was in the bag.  (Arrogance).

Terrorists

The possibility of attacks in the U.S. has increased greatly during the last eight years of the  Obama Presidency and has been played down as domestic violence by Obama. Is he pro Muslim?  No doubt in my mind coupled with his unwillingness to recognize acts that have occurred as being related to radical Islamists.  Thank God he’s out.

Questions concerning the legitimacy of Trump winning the election and Russian influence.

The Obama administration, DNC, notable Liberals and self-proclaimed political journalists are continuing to  peddle their opinions as facts.  (Fake News?)

Organization for Action (OFA)

Do you think Obama is going away?  Think again!  I’ve read that the Obama family has acquired a residence in D.C. and Obama will continue to strengthen his influence in the Democratic National Committee with respect to policy and selection of future Presidential Candidates.

Read about the OFA at the link below.  It has been around for quite some time.

If the Obama presidency is winding down, why is his group Organizing for Action ramping up?
