Trump Needs to Rid of Obama-Holdovers

We’re almost four months into the Trump administration, and sadly, we haven’t had much to show for it. Other than executive orders and the superb nomination of now-Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, there hasn’t been much legislation passed or positions filled.

To add insult to injury, many Obama-holdovers are still in key positions in many departments, and Trump hasn’t taken a lot of action to fill these slots with his own people. For example, we still have Michael Ratney, a John Kerry-confidante, in charge of the Israeli-Palestinian portfolio at the State Department. According to Conservative Review, Ratney oversaw grants to OneVoice, a Leftist non-profit used by Barack Obama to try to defeat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the 2015 Israeli election.

Ratney’s appointment was made in March by Mark Toner, the acting State Department spokesman and Obama-holdover, and was praised by Martin Indyk, former ambassador to Israel and Obama’s “anti-Israel apologist.”

It’s very plausible that the story yesterday of American diplomats claiming the Western Wall isn’t Israeli territory may be explained by this as well. The unnamed diplomat was likely an Obama-holdover, which may be the reason that the White House came out within hours to say that this position was not the one of the administration’s. In fact, it was the exact position taken in the UN when the U.S. abstained from voting in December, causing Trump to show his overt support for Israel and lambast the UN vote.

Another example of an Obama-holdover is the U.S. Ambassador to Qatar, Dana Shell-Smith. The Washington Free Beacon reported today that Smith, appointed by Obama, tweeted last week that she was frustrated by Trump’s administration.

    This is the single biggest failure to date hands down, people are policy! Further, it is these leftist saboteurs that are causing all the problems, the leaks, the lies and all the subversion, thereby preoccupying the administration and prohibiting them from achieving positive legislative and other accomplishments. The second biggest failure, which stems from the first, is not proactively going after the crooks, cronies and criminals of the anti-American, luciferian left as promised during the campaign. Remember “drain the swamp”? For a lot of people, this was the primary reason they voted for Trump! Yet the clinton and obama criminal enterprises are stronger than ever, they’ve not missed a beat and though the repubs were given both houses and the exec branch, it appears the marxist leftist is still running the show. It’s imperative, for Trump to survive the onslaught from the left and all their anarchists factions including the MSM, that he fire the saboteurs, get his people in place and mount an aggressive offensesive against the luciferians, who reject our democratic process and seek to impose their own anti-American, pro-islam/immigrant, bolshevistic iron-fisted rule over us!

      It’s infuriating is it not? I still can not understand his being so sluggish. He does not need any of them there and mainly start with all Obamanite appointee’s and work down the list to the Janitors.

      You sound crazy. Trump is one the leaks himself. Republican President and Congress and they still can’t get anything done. Just like Bush had when he allowed 9/11 to happen, then crashed the economy. The voting right has been getting played by the few elite wealthy since as far back as the civil war.

  • mowmtn

    I am amazed that Trump being as smart as he appears has not thrown all Obama Holdovers out of the White House by now. Chit that would have been the first thing I did by the end of day 1. To drag his feet on ridding the plague of Obamanites watching his every move will help undermine his presidency.

  • Roland Trimmer

    HOW CAN YOU OR ANYONE HAVE THE NERVE TO DISCREDIT THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ADMINISTRATION OT HAVING ACCOMPLISHED MUCH IN THEIR WHOLE BIG FOUR MONTHS ?????? I SUGGEST THAT YOU LOOK YOURSELVES IN THE MIRROR, WITH A TAPE RECORDER ON AND SAY THESE RIDICULOUS THINGS TO YOUR OWN FACES. THEN, SAY WHOOPS TO YOURSELVES AND RETRACT YOUR BASELESS OPINION !!!!!

  • SC2DC

    Trump is having a hard enough time just keeping his cabinet full with all the firings and resignations at the top level. Trump is not smart at all, otherwise he would’ve never let Russians and their dictatorship media into our White House (while banning American media from the meeting). The same meeting in which HE leaked classified information to the Russians. Bunch of fools on this post supporting and believing the con-man Trump. He’s the white Don King, “Only in America!”

  • Loyal American /True Oneness

    By all means, Mr. Trump should rid himself and the White House of all obama’s minions. I am also very surprised he has not done so, but pray it will be done very soon as they are causing a lot of undo problems, God knows he has enough of them without obama.s shadow there.
