Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
The real reason for Ric Grenell’s appointment as Acting DNI becomes clear. – As Democrats and their corrupt media toadies were scrambling to find some way, any way, to kill off the surging Bernie Sanders campaign, Acting DNI Ric Grenell was moving quickly behind the scenes to finally, at long last identify and rid the Trump Administration of all the Deep State snakes in the Intelligence Community.
Deep State hack Adam Goldman and two other fake reporters at the New York Times published a panicked piece about Grenell’s actions thus far, complete with all the anti-Trump code language and outright lies we have all learned to know and love from the Times. Here’s a snippet from the top of that piece:
Richard Grenell’s tenure as the nation’s top intelligence official may be short-lived, but he wasted no time this week starting to shape his team of advisers, ousting his office’s No. 2 official — a longtime intelligence officer — and bringing in an expert on Trump conspiracy theories to help lead the agency, according to officials.
Mr. Grenell has also requested the intelligence behind the classified briefing last week before the House Intelligence Committee where officials told lawmakers that Russia was interfering in November’s presidential election and that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia favored President Trump’s re-election. The briefing later prompted Mr. Trump’s anger as he complained that Democrats would use it against him.
That “expert on Trump conspiracy theories” is none other than…
Kashyap Patel, a senior National Security Council staff member and former key aide to Representative Devin Nunes, Republican of California and the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Mr. Patel will have a mandate to “clean house,” CBS News reported, citing a person close to the matter.
Patel was the key aide who helped Nunes first discover the illegal spying operations by the FBI and the Intelligence Community (IC) against the Trump Campaign and Transition team in 2016, and the fact that the spying ops were ongoing even after Mr. Trump had been sworn into office. Goldman and his fellow hacks detest Patel because he represents a clear and present danger to their Deep State controllers; thus, they slander him in their piece. Typical New York Times hackery.
A few days prior to the appointment of Grenell to the DNI post, President Trump made another key move, appointing Johnny McEntee to run the White House personnel office. This is the office that is responsible for identifying and vetting candidates to fill the hundreds of top political jobs throughout the various federal agencies.
Under prior leadership, it has been an office that has utterly failed to do its job, as many political appointees have turned out to be disloyal skunks themselves. As reported by Axios, McEntee has wasted no time in getting moving in his new assignment:
Johnny McEntee called in White House liaisons from cabinet agencies for an introductory meeting Thursday, in which he asked them to identify political appointees across the U.S. government who are believed to be anti-Trump, three sources familiar with the meeting tell Axios.
Behind the scenes: McEntee, a 29-year-old former body man to Trump who was fired in 2018 by then-Chief of Staff John Kelly but recently rehired — and promoted to head the presidential personnel office — foreshadowed sweeping personnel changes across government.
- But McEntee suggested the most dramatic changes may have to wait until after the November election.
- Trump has empowered McEntee — whom he considers an absolute loyalist — to purge the “bad people” and “Deep State.”
- McEntee told staff that those identified as anti-Trump will no longer get promotions by shifting them around agencies.
Back to Patel. Catherine Herridge, the great former Fox News reporter who moved over to CBS late last year, is reporting that his assignment, directly from President Trump, is to “clean house”:

While most of the truly heavy lifting in that effort may have to wait until after the November election, no part of our government needs a thorough house-cleaning than the IC. Frankly, even that may not turn out to be adequate as, as we have clearly seen over the last three years, our intel agencies are infested with disloyal snakes from top to bottom.
Despicable former CIA Director John Brennan, in one of his paid appearances on MSNBC, said that what is happening now is a “decapitation” of our intelligence community:

If so, the more decapitation, the better. A decapitation is exactly what the IC needs. Followed by a complete gutting, decommissioning and reorganization.
President Trump has said he is considering 4 candidates to ultimately be nominated to serve as the permanent, Senate-confirmed DNI. If he is unable to convince the corrupt Senate Committee on Intelligence to confirm someone he can trust in that role, then he should simply continue appointing Acting DNIs every 200 days until the job of cleaning out the snakepits that make up the IC is completed. If that takes all the way through his second term, so be it.
That is all.
