Chuck Hagel

Chuck Hagel

* Leak War: How the White House unloaded on Chuck Hagel while firing him |* Chuck Hagel forced to step down as US Defense Secretary* US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel to resign* That was fast. Multiple reports Michèle Flournoy has taken herself out of the running to succeed Chuck Hagel as Defence Secretary.* Got to say given the stories, the White House has a better strategy for defeating Chuck Hagel than they do ISIS.* Chuck Hagel has resigned as US Defence Secretary after less than two years in the top post. .

Prior to his appointment, Hagel is said to have v…* READ: Obama's roasted his Thanksgiving turkey early. My new column re Chuck Hagel >* Chuck Hagel was fired today.

The Barack Obama administration is being silly and disingenuous. Of course, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was fired. The Administration is pretending it is something else saying 'he is resigning." Yeah...resigning after the President asked him (and if he didn't?) That is called getting fired. And why do I think he got fired? Because the President called ISIS jayvee in the New Yorker while his Secretary of Defense said "ISIS is an imminent threat to every interest we have...this is beyond anything we've seen." In other words, he made President Obama look bad, real bad...so...Hagel got the target on his back. (by the way, the pic is a cropped pic from NYT)

Barack Obama

Barack Obama

* Lois Lerner is quite possibly one of the most unpopular people in America right along with Barack Obama, and after this latest scandal blowing up across the Internet, her fan base might go from a few to none rather quickly.* Ferguson: A Race Bait Case Study By Mark Alexander As anticipated, St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced Monday night that the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was justified self defense. "[The grand jury] determined that no probable cause exists to file any charge against Officer Wilson, and returned a 'No True Bill' on each of the five indictments," said McCulloch. In fact, Brown's autopsy determined he was facing Wilson when shot, and one of Brown's wounds was at close range inside Wilson's patrol vehicle, the result of Brown's attempt to reach through the driver's door window and take the officer's gun after having assaulted Wilson. Predictably, Barack Obama and his dependable stable of "race bait" surrogates immediately set about to convert the verdict into political capital.
