New defense secretary makes another major military change, this one on Special Forces

Helps to have friends in high places.

Looks like bold decisive action being taken. I hope after he and his under secretary for Special Operations leave the new Biden elect presidency doesn’t undermine these efforts.

Joe & Cam are NOT making the decisions for the future democrat/communist regime that has been in the DC beltway for years. Look at the people who are still calling the shots for DNC. Look at the 3 letter agencies FBI, CIA, NSA, NIH, CDC and the other bureaucratic fiefdoms and how they have influenced the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, The American Cultural History. The heads of these agencies were never elected; They were appointed....THOUGHTS ?

Excellent move! Unfortunately in light of Biden's pension for appointing Beltway insiders and Mattis' denouncing "America First" foreign policy, I fear this move will not survive after 20Jan.

I doubt it gets past the month of February.

Have hope, dear QPs. I don't believe Quid-Pro-Joe or the ineligible Camel-Toe Harris will ever reach the White House. (Why is Camel-Toe ineligible? Neither of her parents were U.S. citizens at the time of her birth. Therefore, Camel-Toe is not a "natural born" U.S. citizen. Therefore she is - by U.S. Constitutional standards - not eligible to run for either the office of president or vice-president of the United States. Of course the Demonrats ignored this constitutional technicality; but it's bound to come up some time.)

Other than that, President Trump is not quitting. His attorneys are on the fraud that occurred in this election; as are Sydney Powell and her people. Her suit will be brought tomorrow.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving to all here - and don't let the turkeys get you down!

Foreign Policy first reported the removals.
Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller, who made an unannounced trip to Bahrain and Qatar Wednesday nearly a week after announcing US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan would be further reduced, said in a statement Thursday, "I am grateful to the departing board members, many of whom have served for decades."
"As we adapt the Department for great power competition, I look forward to naming new board members in the coming days," Miller said.
After Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper earlier this month, the Pentagon made sweeping changes in leadership and removed several most senior officials, replacing them with perceived loyalists to the President. The move fueled alarm among military and civilian officials who were concerned about what could come next.

I don't think the citizenship thing for Harris will come up because, under current precedent, parental citizenship doesn't bear on the matter.

Per https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/natural_born_citizen

Quote:
The phrase "natural-born citizen" appears in the U.S. Constitution. In order to become the President or Vice President of the United States, a person must be a natural-born citizen. This "Natural-Born Citizen Clause" is located in Section 1 of Article 2 of the United States Constitution.

The constitution does not expressly define “natural born” nor has the Supreme Court ever ruled precisely upon its meaning. One can be a citizen while not being a "natural born" citizen if, for example, that person gained citizenship through the process of naturalization.

Under the 14th Amendment's Naturalization Clause and the Supreme Court case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 US. 649, anyone born on U.S. soil and subject to its jurisdiction is a natural born citizen, regardless of parental citizenship. This type of citizenship is referred to as birthright citizenship.
I'd rather see some serious electronic forensics across several states to get Trump back about 1.7M votes. Harris would then be moot and we can get to the necktie parties.
