In what could not possibly be a surprise to anybody Trump has asked James Comey to continue on as Director of the FBI.

Courtesy of TPM: 

President Donald Trump will retain FBI Director James Comey to lead the law enforcement agency under his new administration, according to reports published Tuesday. 

Comey told top agents that Trump asked him to stay in his post, according to a New York Times report citing people familiar with the matter. 

The Washington Post also reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Comey told people he was asked to retain his job. 

Representatives for the White House and FBI declined to comment to the publications.

Gee, who could possibly have seen this coming?

I guess if you break protocol to alter an election outcome in one candidate's favor, once that candidate takes the office you helped them win they will reward you with stable employment,

Who knew?

Oh by the way let me go ahead and predict the outcome of the FBI's investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

They're not going to find any.

    Comey still has about six more years in his term so it was unlikely he would be fired. The blatant air kiss is far more disturbing to me.

      The kiss may be normal for trump? I think he might be alternative flirting with his new Beau.
      Trump is one sicko.At least appears so?
      Maybe not. Maybe KellyAnne knows?
      Maybe he will enlighten us in Tweeters?

    '1984' sales soar after 'alternative facts,' Trump claims

    The Associated Press

    NEW YORK (AP) George Orwell's "1984" has hit No. 1 on Amazon.com following incorrect or unprovable statements made by Republican President Donald Trump and White House aides.
    Orwell's classic dystopian tale of a society in which facts are distorted and suppressed in a cloud of "newspeak" was first published in 1949. It topped the Amazon best-seller list Tuesday.
    The sales bump comes after the Trump administration's assertions his inauguration had record attendance and his unfounded allegation millions of illegal votes were cast against him last fall.
    Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway coined an instant catchphrase Sunday when she called Trump's claims about crowd size "alternative facts," bringing comparisons on social media to "1984."
    Orwell's book isn't the only cautionary tale on the Amazon list. At No. 46 was Sinclair Lewis' 1935 novel about the election of an authoritarian president, "It Can't Happen Here."

    OK, now let’s see what Congress intends to do about this, if there is anything they can do:

    ‘It’s day 4 and it’s already happening’: Maddow sounds the alarm on Trump’s science gag order

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday sounded the alarm about Donald Trump’s imminent crackdown of federal agencies—including the Environmental Protection Agency—warning, “it is day four, and it is already happening.”

    Maddow was referring to reports that the new administration issued a gag order to workers at the EPA, even as hearings are currently underway for Trump’s pick to head the agency, climate change denier Scott Pruitt. She said the EPA has essentially been “brought to a halt,” pointing out that the only reason we even know about the gag order is because an employee managed to surreptitiously “tip somebody off inside a Congressional office on Capitol Hill.

    “The work of the agency is frozen, all existing contracts and grants are suspended immediately, and no EPA employees are allowed to make any public statements, including any online postings, social media—anything,” Maddow said, aghast. “They can’t even make public appearances that were previously scheduled.”

    Maddow said while the Trump administration mulls over ways to “formally” close the EPA, it has successfully “bound and gagged the EPA.” The MSNBC host noted this is “not a solitary case,” adding “multiple federal agencies” have received similar orders.
    Maddow then referred to reports shortly after Trump’s election indicating federal agencies—particularly those involved with scientific research—were actively backing up public-facing information in preparation for Trump’s presidency.

    “Now we know, not paranoid,” Maddow said. “Now we know, day four of the new administration, those people were not wrong to be freaked out. And they probably, in the interest of science, were not wrong to be downloading and trying to save data privately.”
    “Because the data is disappearing,” she continued. “The scientists are already being told they are not allowed to speak or publish. It is already happening, it is day four, and it is already happening.”

    Trump Can't Shut Federal Agencies. But He Can Turn Them Off.

    Many Republicans hope, and many Democrats fear, that Donald Trump’s administration will close or shrink a variety of federal agencies and offices. Both the hope and the fear are justified -- even without a supermajority in the Senate, there’s a lot Republicans can do to restrict the actions of the executive branch.

    Let’s start with what Trump can’t do: Acting on his own, could he disband an agency or department -- say, the Department of Energy? Absolutely not. He would need Congress for that, and almost certainly 60 votes (and it’s not going to get close to that). But his administration could work to cut staff, if only by refusing to fill vacancies, and it could certainly work with Congress to reduce appropriations.

    Far more important, Trump could do a lot to reduce agency activity.......

    ..... But without going to Congress, does a president really have the authority to impose a moratorium?

    Insofar as we are speaking of executive agencies -- defined as those headed by people the president can fire whenever he likes -- the answer is mostly yes. The Department of Treasury falls in this category (as do most federal agencies). Under a controversial court of appeals ruling (which may be overturned), so does the CFPB.

    Through a presidential memorandum or an informal communication (perhaps via incoming Chief of Staff Reince Priebus or the new administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs), the administration could grind the rule-making activity of such agencies to a near-halt. It could do the same for the many executive agencies not involved in financial regulation, such as the Department of Transportation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Agriculture.

    But for any such slowdown, the new administration will face two serious obstacles. The first consists of legislative mandates. Some laws, including those in the financial and environmental areas, require agencies to issue rules by specified dates. No president can lawfully ignore legal deadlines, and a court is likely to insist that he comply with them.

    The second obstacle is that most financial regulators, including the SEC and the Federal Reserve, count as “independent” agencies, which means that their heads do not serve at the president’s pleasure. (The Federal Communications Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, and the Federal Trade Commission are also independent.) By tradition, presidents have been reluctant to meddle in policy making by such agencies -- though the Supreme Court has yet to say whether they have the legal authority to do so.......

    Newt Gingrich, Trusted Trump Advisor Demands Federal Workers Who Voted For Clinton Be Fired

    "Those bureaucrats overwhelmingly voted for Clinton. There won’t be any real cooperation until we change federal law so we can fire them.”

    ...His solution, “perhaps the most nakedly political argument for mass firings of federal employees,” is summarily terminating every single federal worker who voted for Hillary Clinton. He said, “all those bureaucrats overwhelmingly voted for Clinton. There won’t be any real cooperation until we change federal law so we can fire them.” (author bold) It is vindictive and it is also a shamelessly racist attack on the Black community. Gingrich, like the malcontent conservatives at the Heritage Foundation, is well aware that African Americans make up about 20 percent of the “overall federal workforce.” It is not enough satisfaction for Republicans to kill off federal jobs for sheer sport, they have to make sure a very large percentage of those jobs are held by African Americans; it is so typically Republican racist.

    But just firing federal workers who voted for Hillary Clinton wasn’t the only Trump vengeance Gingrich called for. He also demanded summarily abolishing the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) for not rubber-stamping fiscally detrimental Trump-Republican policies. He took a page out of deceitful Donnie’s book and lied saying,

    “The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is simply incompatible with the Trump era. It is a left-wing, corrupt, bureaucratic defender of big government and liberalism.”

    Gingrich is fuming that the non-partisan CBO revealed that repealing the Affordable Care Act would “increase the number of uninsured Americans by 18-million in the first year,” and increase insurance premiums for the “non-group” market by 20 to 25 percent, also in the first year. Like Trump, Gingrich subscribes to the philosophy that anyone in any agency that doesn’t praise a Trump-Republican policy or agenda as “god-sent” is Satanic and has to be deleted from existence.

    Gingrich claims that the Republicans and Democrats serving in the CBO are not only dirty liars, he says they are indefensible, wrong and they are “clearly corrupt.” It is worth reiterating again that the only reason Gingrich and the Trump believe the CBO is corrupt is because it didn’t give its glowing approval of a fiscally disastrous and inhumane action called for by Trump Republicans.

    ...Any American who still believes Trump or Republicans have any regard for the people or the government that exists to serve and protect them is an idiot. Maybe in the Trump era today Republicans will only target Clinton voters, women and minorities, but like any tyrannical regime, the autocracy will eventually get around to terrorizing the entire population like Iraq under Saddam Hussein, North Korea under Kim Jong-un, Germany under Hitler and rapidly developing America under the Trump.

      Gingrich is much like tRump, a bloated asshole. He uses big words, so the uneducated think he is "smart" He is not. He is STILL trying to repay the Clintons because he failed to get Bill impeached, and was exposed as the womanizer he was and likely still is.

    2. Anonymous4:21 AM

      Does Gingrich realize that no one knows how another person voted. We vote by "secret ballot," Newt. Who we vote for is no one else's business. I can just imagine the chaos if the only federal employees were those who voted for Trump! The IQ would tumble by a "yuuuge" amount per federal employee. What keeps things running more or less smoothly is the fact that federal employees know what they're doing and do their jobs.

    Trump Complains Negative Press Means He Can't 'Enjoy' White House

    President Donald Trump thinks that unfavorable media coverage of his first weekend in office has not allowed him to "enjoy" the White House, according to a Tuesday report by the Associated Press.

    Trump believed that the media would cover him more favorably after he was inaugurated, according to an Associated Press report citing two anonymous sources close to the President, but instead believes it has worsened.

    The President said that the negative press has not allowed him to "enjoy" the White House on his first weekend in office, according to an anonymous source who spoke with him also cited in the report.

  20. Anonymous8:26 PM

    The bad press over the weekend has not allowed Trump to “enjoy” the White House as he feels he deserves, according to one person who has spoken with him.

    The President seems to think that the White House is some sort of vacation getaway. The President Of The United States doesn’t get to “enjoy” the White House. He was sent there to do a job, and I am sure that the millions of Americans who protested on Saturday aren’t sorry at all that they disrupted Trump’s enjoyment of his weekend.

    Trump was blaming the media for the “bad press,” but the protests were at the heart of why he was so outraged. The protests drew bigger crowds and got more coverage than he did one day after taking office. While Trump was blaming the media coverage, the reality is that the protests got so much coverage because they were massive and well organized.

    Donald Trump isn’t grasping the fact that he is working for those millions of people who protested on Saturday. They are his boss. The White House isn’t a vacation spot. Trump is not entitled to enjoy his weekend.

    The President wants the protesters to stop protesting, and the media to stop covering any protests that happen.

    All Trump has accomplished with his most recent outburst was to guarantee that there will be more loud protests and the nation’s television cameras will be covering them.
