This makes me sick. I hate the communist/deep state Democrat and RINO corrupt, selfish jerks that run good people into the ground to protect their crimes.

Supposedly now Trump is going to appoint Pete Hoekstra, who was chair of the INTELLIGENCE committee in the House. Let’s see the Deep State try their “no experience” gambit on him!

RINO's gotta keep the supply of illegal alien children coming in to satisfy the lusts of their masters in Hollywood.

“”Supposedly now Trump is going to appoint Pete Hoekstra, who was chair of the INTELLIGENCE committee in the House. Let’s see the Deep State try their “no experience” gambit on him!””

I would say - great choice but that was true about Ratcliff also. It really doesn’t matter WHO is named, the devils will do their worst to dissuade the president. Hoekstra was an amazing congressman BUT that was THEN, and this is now. Different day - different time.

I gotta be honest here. I thought this pick was a bit baffling.

I had never heard of Ratcliffe until his stellar performance in grilling Mueller a couple of weeks ago. When it was announced that President Trump had selected him to replaces Coats as the DNI, my first thought was: "Why do I get the feeling that he was only appointed because he looked great on TV during that committee hearing?"

The President had him vetted and he didn’t pass inspection.

The only thing I remember about Pete Hoekstra is his "Turtle Fence" speech on Auto-Tune the News"Turtle Fence" speech on Auto-Tune the News.

How did the country survive before there was a position called “National Intelligence Director”?

They’re not afraid of anything.

They’ve no reason to be.

Presidents will come and go but the deep state will never go away.

They own DC.

Let’s just enjoy the great president we have for the next 5 plus years.

It’s a shame local media is so weak that it doesn’t spot these liars and frauds before they get put up for big jobs. I guess congress isn’t important enough to bother learning that someone’s entire resume is fictitious.

The deep state wants their man and will destroy anybody else not meeting their swampy standards.

The US intelligence agencies are pathetic failures.

Since we have no borders anymore, we don’t need intelligence agencies. The enemy is within already.

Just because they’re full of moles and get involving in electoral politics? Just because they can’t spot fake intelligence even if it bites them in the a$$? Some people are just never satisfied./s

The question is who is loyal and willing to endure the inevitable rape hoaxes and other extreme forms of organized libel?
