(Washington Post)   Remember that narrative that Gen Kelly was the apoltical professional "good soldier" doing his best to keep a check on the nation's crazy, racist, uncle who somehow became president? Yeah if there is any of that story left, this should put it to bed   ( washingtonpost.com) divider line

By "kicking the can down the road" I think that they mean, "the next President may not be as colossal a dick as this one"...and thus, they want the pressure on, because they can all see that the clock is running out...

Back when people wondered why a supposed good guy would take a job with the Trump administration, its good to know that they won't. Only the genuinely horrible people want any part of him.

Surprised that Duke wasn't the one that sucked here.

Kicking it down the road? TPS for each eligible country is always renewed for 18 months based on the conditions in the foreign country affected. That's not kicking anything down the road, it's just how the program works.

Kelley is a racist asshole. He's always been that way. People who think otherwise are idiots. He's not an adult there to keep Trump in line.

Remember when Kelly was totes cool torturing Arabs who hadn't done anything cuz 9/11 gave him a big ol' murder boner?

"Guys, we aren't bigots, we just really care about legality. We'd love to help people"

"Ok, here are some legal ways to expand that, help people, etc"

"No".

You see this every time from everyone who discusses immigration and tries to hide their white nationalist views.

I'm starting to think that maybe, just maybe, serving in the Armed Forces doesn't automatically confer honor, morality, and wisdom on an otherwise terrible human being.

Republicans seem to have a really hard time understanding that the Founding Fathers they deify built essentially one giant sanctuary state.

There is simply no grander hypocrisy in this world than white Americans telling anyone to get out of their country.

I still maintain that this may be a once-decent man, or at least mostly decent, now turned to the dark side by the company he keeps. It is hard to square his current actions with his early ones unless he has changed; the man who did this on Monday isn't a man who would have thrown Bannon, Gorka, and Scaramucci out of the White House.

But yeah, if there was ever any good in him, it's gone. He's one of them now for sure. God farking dammit. And that was quick, too.

I've learned in my life that doctors aren't particularly bright, highly decorated soldiers are still just hired goons, and every famous male entertainer is an objectifying embodiment of trash. I hope the next generation learns it sooner than I did.

You mean that narrative that Fark took up, subby? Don't kid yourself that that wasn't the mantra here for quite a while. We all got taken in by his shiat, because he was so... rational.

Now we've learned our lesson, though. He's just as big a POS as his boss.

This is a man who supported and defended the use of torture when Gitmo was part of his command. He hasn't been decent for a very long time.

Isn't there some psychological term for a sort of contagious insanity?  One person pulls another into their delusions?

I was just thinking about this... How many minority soldiers have served under Kelly?  How many have died?  And he still doesn't feel that they deserve equality.

Blue Falcon Kelly.  The man deserves to be tried for Treason through Adherence.

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

This.

He supported Trump in the first place and was initially appointed to head Homeland Security because he's all gung ho about the farking wall and keeping brown people out.  fark that guy.

Your naivete is charming and gives me hope for humanity.

However Kelly didn't trash Larry Curly and Moe because they were bad people.  They got the heave-ho because they were making Trump look bad.

It's only a matter of time before someone steps forward to show how Kelly farked over minority service members on the fitness reports and pro/con marks and rated them behind/below white officers.

You heard it here first

When discussing the number of refugees the US should accept, Gen Kelly said that the "ideal number would be between 0 and 1." The man is just as much as a jingoistic nativist as Trump is. It remains to be seen if he is as racist as Trump. But the odds don't look good for Kelly.

I do, I am as I'd not more guilty than most of falling for it, maybe why it pisses me off so much
