Where are they now - a companion thread to the Quit/ fired thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Where are they now - a companion thread to the Quit/ fired thread

"Friday, Caliburn International confirmed to CBS News that Kelly had joined its board of directors. Caliburn is the parent company of Comprehensive Health Services, which operates Homestead and three other shelters for unaccompanied migrant children in Texas.

Prior to joining the Trump administration in January 2017, Kelly had been on the board of advisors of DC Capital Partners, an investment firm that now owns Caliburn.

The Caliburn board includes other former high-ranking military personnel, including retired General Anthony C. Zinni, Admiral James G. Stavridis and Rear Admiral Kathleen Martin. The company's portfolio includes work in a variety of defense sectors."


Interesting that so many of these scumbags are found together before, during and after trump.

"shelters" = prisons

"unaccompanied" = ripped from their parents' arms, no records kept
It really is time to stop being nice about stupidity.

Wasn't the "left wing" media calling him the adult in the room?

Would have been so easy to see that he was padding profits for the company he worked for before trump and maybe even a little speculation about after trump.

Maybe, idk, but much less so than people like Rex and Mattis. Remember, Kelly was spreading the Pizzagate conspiracy theory before the election, and only lasted 3 weeks into the admin*.

I thought POSPOTUS had rules, but maybe it's okay since it's been more than 2 years since he let govt.

Michael Cohen reports to prison tomorrow. Roger Stone is a quivering, shuddering mass of pent up bile and angst as he must shut the fuck up until his trial is over....even odds he goes off the wagon and says something stupid and then is taken into custody until trial. I think the trial is in November, so six more months of shut up for Roger if he can stand it. Sean Spicer will write a memoir titled "How to Lie Without Trying and Still Look Like an Ass." Not sure what Hope Hicks will resort to; I hope she will stop by one night for small talk and big, well, never mind that. Jeff Sessions and Roy Moore hang out at a rural Alabama store and pine over "the good ole days" when white was right and they were the whitest of all.

That might be punishment enough or him. Theoretical punishment, he'll never make it.

Welcome back! Search your handle. I think you've been mentioned a time or two, but can't remember the context.

I know better than to talk shit before the game or, in this case, before the season even starts. Nice try, though! :thumbup:

Where are they now? $124,000 than he might have been.
Lawmakers take EPA head to task for refusing to demand Pruitt repay travel expenses

Lawmakers are blasting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for refusing to hold former agency head Scott Pruitt accountable for $124,000 in extravagant travel expenses.

Democrats on Capitol Hill Thursday criticized EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler for deciding against asking his predecessor to pay back thousands in what they said were excessive and unjustified travel costs during his time heading the agency.

“Mr. Pruitt’s lavish tastes, and his use of taxpayer money to finance them, have become a punchline. But this isn’t a joke, and the Trump administration should take it seriously and take responsibility,” U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-N.M.), who had called for an Office of Inspector General's (OIG) investigation into Pruitt’s questionable flying habits, wrote in a statement.

The EPA’s OIG released a report Thursday that said Pruitt and his staff had overspent nearly $124,000 on “excessive” first class travel over the course of ten months in 2017. The government watchdog recommended the EPA request Pruitt pay back his share of costs.

“Yet Administrator Wheeler’s EPA rushed to defend Mr. Pruitt’s indefensible conduct following the release of this report – and the report itself indicates Administrator Wheeler’s team retroactively approved Mr. Pruitt’s travel, a de facto pardon of this unacceptable abuse of taxpayer money," Udall said....
Only Democrats care, of course.

I watched a clip of Sean Spicer from a Fox News show in which they were talking about General Flynn and the latest hubbub surrounding him. The host pointed out to Sean that Obama fired Flynn and warned trump not to hire him. Spicer rejected that and started talking about nobody "in the intelligence community" raised any flags about Flynn. I thought that statement from Spicer was telling in the sense that he apparently assumes Obama just up and fired Flynn for no reason or just because he didn't like him.....something trump would do. So, Spicer assumed that Obama fired Flynn with no input or information from anyone at DIA or elsewhere in the intelligence community because his only experience in anything like this is with the trump cartel who operate on a whim or a tweet. Sort of an up through the rectum insight into the "brains" in the trump rodeo clown show.
