Fmr. DHS Chief Of Staff: ‘Everything Donald Trump Did With DHS Was Politicized’ | Deadline | MSNBC


  1. Perhaps the Pentagon should be reviewed as well? Representatives of Biden complained about them withholding information relevant to national security, and then January 6th happened.

    1. @Steve Sh and also add, A/HRC/33/29. This was not a “last minute” hiccup. I apologize for the above reading being so drab; however, facts are documented in drabness.

    2. Huge difference between Chief of Staff of Homeland Security and Chief of Staff to former Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and acting secretary Kevin McAleenan. Miles Taylor is a liar. He never corrected it when the MSNBC misleadingly called him the title. Further more, he was just the Deputy chief to Nielsen. Such a person has no credibility and will be fired by any corporate or business from the job after he is found lying about his title in previous employer.

    3. @Steve Sh For real, man. Ask for the last four years of taxes back. Why should we pay taxes when the Trumps profited from being in office? It’s beyond BS.

  2. Trump is on the outside looking in like he should be, inciting insurrection should never be tolerated.

  3. My. So far the trolls outnumber normal comments. Must mean Nicolle is effective because they’re targeting her videos.

    1. @jones • Don’t be desolate. You have a great imagination and sense of comedy to so accurately select the “GQP” and “deep state Dems” sterotypes.

    2. @Yvonne Tomenga I think the essence of comedy is that at its heart, there can be found a kernel of tragedy. Frankly, what led me to focus on this aspect on these pages of humorless topics is not only the fact that when successful it can bring a spark of hope, which becomes faith in the daylight ahead and in turn can become strength to the downtrodden for the necessary battle we are compelled to endure, but humor also becomes a mighty sword against those sad, unreasonable, gullible souls who have bought the lie; and with whom reason and logic have no purchase.  

      Bullies are generally afraid of being exposed as being weak, and this can be their Achilles heel. They typically have no defense against ridicule.  

      Thank you for your comment. Namaste

    3. @Ruby VonSlatt
      I have never seen people treating Biden like Trump’s followers treated Trump. “Cult?” Hahahahaha!

  4. I can’t believe how gross Fox News is. They are doubling down on gross. They are an existential threat to the entire world. I hope more is done about it quick.

    1. @Jey Frye are you sure your name isn’t “Karen whine” ??? “I’m no fan of fox news” is what you state but you probably watch newsmax and oann lol also going to 8chan to see what “qronnie” Watkins is saying isn’t news either!

    2. Fox “news” is banned in some country’s because those country’s know everything they say is b.s lol

    3. There is one man who can properly be regarded as the father of Zionism and Nazism: Benjamin Disraeli. To omit Disraeli from a central place in the 19th century development of Zionism, agent historian Barbara Tuchman once said, “would be as absurd as to leave the ghost out of Hamlet.” As prime minister under Victoria in the 1870s, Disraeli was the overseer of Britain’s imperial design to secure a “homeland” for Jews as a British outpost in the Middle East, and a secret document authored by Disraeli became the manifesto for early Zionism in Europe. That much is admitted on the public record. What’s hidden are Disraeli’s motivations. In the 40 novels he also authored, Disraeli called for an Aryan-Semitic alliance to form an organized superior “Caucasian race” that was destined to rule the world with British power and the Hebrew-centered “sacred mysteries of the East.” This was the counter-cult to the rising demand for industrialization and progress throughout Europe, the United States, and the Arab world. As we shall show, Nazism and Zionism were the hideous twin offspring of the same Anglican racist mother. Disraeli himself was the son of an early British cultist, Isaac D’Israeli, a dilettantish figure and literary critic associated with circles around the Edinburgh Review and Sir Walter Scott. Nominally a Jew by name, Isaac D’Israeli was involved in the Isis cult worship of these circles and encouraged his son to study Jesuit teachings and explore other pagan anti-Christian teachings. The Walter Scott clique was the originator of numerous myths and cults conduited into Europe, including the Odin cult in Germany that supplied a mythical history for Nazism.

      Early in his political literary career, Disraeli made two important connections. The first was to the up-and-coming Rothschild family. The most notable Hofjuden (“Court Jew”) family of Britain patronized Disraeli’s activities and Disraeli wrote in a letter, “I have always been of the opinion that there cannot be too many Rothschilds.” Secondly, he was introduced to Edward Bulwer- Lytton, an arch-priest of the Isis cult in Britain. Bulwer- Lytton was the author of the Last Days of Pompeii : which promulgated the Isis cult and the novel Rienzi. The latter supplied the story for one of Wagner’s first operas which became another manifesto of Nazism. Bulwer- Lytton and his son were both to serve as Colonial and India Office secretaries during the mid-nineteenth century. Bulwer-Lytton’s novels became the seminal tracts for a whole variety of cults devoted to spreading the cult of Isis directly or in other guises. Those included the 1848 creation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, the 1860s Metaphysical Society and Masonic Rosicrucian Lodge, the 1880s creation of the Isis-Uranus Temple of the Hermetic Students of the Golden Dawn, the Theosophy Society founded by Madame Blavatsky, who published Isis Unveiled and The Cabala Unveiled, and end-of-the- century grotesqueries like the Cannibal Club and the Suicide Society. There was one aim behind all these cults: the formation of ritual worship cults for the creation of terrorists, environmentalists, anarchists, and other zombified enemies of progress that could be deployed against whatever obstacle stood in the way of Britain’s imperial designs. Disraeli’s own initiation into the Isis cult came with an early 1830s trip to the countries of the Mediterranean, a trip that took him to Malta, the home base of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, Greece, Egypt, and Palestine, the latter two for extended stays. In Greece, the future prime minister expounded on the theme of the “Oriental background of Hellenistic civilization. ‘ According to Disraeli, “in art the Greeks were the children of the Egyptians, ‘ the originators of Isis. The trip provided Disraeli with his hallucinatory raw material for his “cabalistic” 1830s-1840s novels, which according to one of their Rothschild-modeled characters, Sindonia, were aimed at “penetrating the great Asian mystery.” Upon his return from the Near East, Disraeli set to work on writing Alroy, his first call for a return to Palestine. THE STRATEGIC AIM The first British cries for a return to Palestine were sounded when Napoleon conquered Egypt. In entering Egypt with the idea of creating a modern nation in this country that had fallen to the rule of the homosexual Mamluks, Napoleon was carrying out the Grand Design of the great 17th century humanist Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. That Grand Design, the design of humanist republicans in the United States, France and elsewhere, called for industrializing Asia, the Near East, and Africa — the Third World — as a means of advancing the process of industrialization of Europe and America. Leibniz’s special project for conquering Egypt to open the Mediterranean as a trade route for a France-centered European trade drive was coopted in full by Napoleon in the 1790s. When Napoleon’s troops landed in Egypt, the British press shrieked in. loud headlines: “Napoleon: Plagiarist of Leibniz.” Upon arriving in the Near East, Bible in one hand, Koran in the other, Napoleon made an appeal for an ecumenical alliance of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism to bring the Near East under the hegemony of republican forces in Europe. Within this ecumenical framework, Napoleon called for the return of Jews to Palestine as a crucial input for the development of the entire region. Upon routing Napoleon from Egypt, the British moved quickly to subvert the potential the project had represented. First, through agents like explorer and profiler Richard Burton, the British Foreign Office set about infiltrating Islam with overlays of Isis cult mythology through Sufism and other cults. Secondly, Zionism emerged as a fundamental tool to secure British imperial designs.

      In April 1835, Disraeli fought a by-election at Taunton as a Tory candidate.[61] The Irish MP Daniel O’Connell, misled by inaccurate press reports, thought Disraeli had slandered him while electioneering at Taunton; he launched an outspoken attack, referring to Disraeli as:

      a reptile … just fit now, after being twice discarded by the people, to become a Conservative. He possesses all the necessary requisites of perfidy, selfishness, depravity, want of principle, etc., which would qualify him for the change. His name shows that he is of Jewish origin. I do not use it as a term of reproach; there are many most respectable Jews. But there are, as in every other people, some of the lowest and most disgusting grade of moral turpitude; and of those I look upon Mr. Disraeli as the worst.[62]

    4. @BGD the Sinclair family also bankrolled the Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, modeled after Solomon’s temple and featured in Dan Brown’s DaVinci code. It was Sinclair who recorded all their anchors reading a script that was then used to radicalize the Qanon crowd against media. This is a multi billion dollar information warfare operation, and the left seems to be complicit in their ignorance and acquiescence. No wonder they spent 250 million getting Kavanuagh and Barrett into the Supreme court so Fox News could continue. It all makes sense now

  5. “Against all enemies foreign and domestic” is how I believe the pledge of those sworn into our Intelligence and Security Agencies goes. I like Taylor’s phrase about Trump “dithering” about right-wing extremists. Trump dithered because they supported him, and gaining rabid support rather than doing the right or safe things has always been Trump’s agenda.

    1. @BGD actually, it was Paul Manafort who colluded with the Russians. The IGs report says so. He gave the Russian spy, Konstantin Kilimnik, trump campaign and poling information. The Russians interfered in our 2016 and 2020 elections in favor of trump.

    2. @Kenneth Fox trump destroyed our country. No one else. He has no idea what patriotism is. He wanted to be a Dictator like Xi, Putin, his little lover, Kim, anyone but American.

    3. @Roger Carpenter yea, if he is a security threat group, yes if he weakens the county for foreigners and yes if he takes the word of a murderous dictator over his own intelligence agencies.

    4. @julia howard said no buts but you go right ahead. Simple question. How is opening our southern boarder helping you? Do you think it is helping with covid?

    1. @Rick van der Heijden you all sure have a strange obsession with Donald Trump and Russia. It’s raining outside—— Donald Trump and Russia. Biden is the most popular President ever…… Donald Trump and Russia. Does it ever get old or does it make you feel better about yourself? Ha!

  6. My tip to the FBI.. Be on the lookout for anyone still flying a trump** flag or displaying a trump** bumper sticker…
    They are more then likely Insurrectionist.

    1. @george Hastings Wearing a garment to signify your allegiance to a cult leader/TV reality star never made sense when he WAS in office.

    2. The remaining people that fly a Trump flag just let me know where the white supremacists live. They don’t hide anymore.

  7. “If your “team” is on the side of the Capitol insurrectionists and Derek Chauvin, it’s hard to suppress the haunting fear that you’re the baddies.” – Amanda Marcotte – SALON

    1. @ThE DuCk Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt – It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid. Identity politics get your rocks off?

    2. @Ben Williams that’s ridiculous and you know it. The Dems are no more a cult than the Republicans. Trump supporters on the other hand exhibit all the traits of cult behavior.

  8. Get fox out of military bases. Require military to educate in history/civics, psyop techniques etc. Make it part of training.


    1. When rose McGowan called democrats a cukt she was right they ignore violence and incitement from antifa and blm amd blame Trump for it. Hahaha special kind of stupid

    2. @Robert Arthurs You can bet they are. trump sent his unidentified, unqualified paramilitary stormtroopers thugs in their brown shirts to attack mothers and veterans. They kidnapped people off the streets and placed them in unidentified SUVs and drove away. They were released. trump was behind it all. It was his attempt to turn the military on its own people. He did it in DC on 6-1-20 in Lafayette Park. He needed a photo-op with a Bible. General Milley apologized for his role in trump’s theatrical performance. AG EmBARRassment arranged that little situation. As they said, trump politized everything. He tried to get these people to do illegal duties. Some did and some did not.

    3. @Gary that is the problem. Antifa is an enigma. trump was focused on the nonexistent while grooming his while extremist. He had Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys to the WH the week prior to the insurrection. The insurrectionists knew about the tunnels under the Capitol. They were planning on gasing the Congressional representatives and closing them in. They wanted to hang VP Pence and assassinate Speaker Pelosi and other members of Congress. They were trump’s people. They were not BLM or the enigma of Antifa. They were White Extremist.

  10. Republicans that complain are like the classic wife beater that points at his wife and declares “… She hates me!”

    1. Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse that’s seen in abusive relationships. It’s the act of manipulating a person by forcing them to question their thoughts, memories, and the events occurring around them.
      Gaslighting describes the systematic pattern of abuse by which the abuser manipulates factual information to give the victim the impression that they cannot trust their own senses. Most of us would recognise this as being part of the grooming process seen so often in cases of Child Sexual Exploitation we deal with. They may repeatedly focus on their own feelings in order to make the victim feel guilty for hurting them. Some predators may also engage in gaslighting. Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse where the perpetrator makes a person question their thoughts, memories, and events they have experienced.
      Weird how right wing populist rhetoric seems to be modeled on the same techniques used by pedophiles *so weird*

    2. @howard matts ​On behalf of Barack Obama, George Soros, & all the deep state liberals who stole this election for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris & Beelzebub, I am authorized to inform you butthurt MAGA crybabies that next we are coming to steal your household pets, appliances, possum rifles & pickup trucks. After that we will be stealing your cha-cha heels, wigs & zaftig foundation garments. Thank you for your cooperation.

  11. Traitors. Every person appointed, hired, or directed to be hired for the past 4 years, up to January 20, 2021 is a traitor, and at best are a ticking time bomb.

    1. @Juan Manuel Penaloza I’ve tried and try but consistently fail to understand, could you help me out with this persisting conundrum?

  12. First, start with Fox News….then all who posses Confederate army paraphernalia…, the swamp of Ron Johnson, Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Stephen Miller, Jared Kushner, Lindsey Graham, Desantis, Margaret Taylor Greene and others.

  13. President Biden is such an inspiration!!!! May God continue to bless him with abundance of strength and wisdom to enable him to fix all the mess the orange baby left behind.

    1. Manufacture of consent
      Good cop bad cop
      Love bombing
      Domestic abuse
      America is a fascist state Biden is Obama 2.0 “Change” “Yes we can” but never did

    2. @Uncanny Valley couldn’t make too many changes with Republican hacks obstructing and killing progressive bills that were passed by Congress!!!

    1. @PPV Thanks, you got a laugh out of me, your comment was hilarious! I was feeling kinda down listening to Nicole’s grim analysis of the dengar our democracy is facing right now.

  14. The words ‘integrity’ & ‘Republican’ really can’t be taken seriously when coupled together.

  15. I don’t remember hearing BLM or antifa chanting about hanging the vice president bringing a makeshift gallows along with them

    1. @Satanic Microchip v4 no they were not send me the proof don’t make up stuff they found pipe bombs they said but didn’t investigate or say who they found them on . They even lied about how the capitol police officer died he died of a stroke not from protestors.

    2. @Satanic Microchip v4 they asked the fbi assistant director how many guns were confiscated on Jan 6th

      Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., asked Jill Sanborn, assistant director of the FBI’s counterterrorism division, how many guns the FBI had confiscated in the Capitol or on its grounds on Jan. 6.

      “To my knowledge, none,” Sanborn is quoted as saying in several outlets,

    1. I agree we have insurrectionist in our government seats hope they don’t get to compterable they made their beds cheering on that insurrection and continuing their negative racist old fashioned views!!

    2. Haha “in a way trump never did” too funny.. Trump got rid of isis.. Biden is inviting them across the border…. liberals are such bozos
