Let's put Lyin' John Brennan or Crooked James Clapper on the job...
Yeah... That's the ticket...
Grenell is qualified for the position of DNI. He will oversee the 17 constituent agencies of our intelligence community and manage the flow of information gathered to the President with aplomb. Without the taint of experience with the intelligence process under Hussein and Clinton, Grenell can effectively do this job.
Or Susan Rice or ....
Oh, yeah... Ms. "It Was a Muslim Video" herself...
The bottom line is, I'd rather have someone whom President Trump trusts implicitly (and can, if necessary, grow into the job) than some pre-approved hack dredged from within the Deep State who is "qualified for the job"...
Please list his intelligence experience.
This post makes clear that you have little notion of what is done by a Director of National Intelligence.
Anyway, his resume is no worse than many others that came before him.
Not to mention that one of his predecessors turned out to be a deep state mole and elitist coup conspirator. That guy seemed to have a great resume. So much for that...
Did you ask that Barack Obama list his prior executive experience before you voted him into the toughest executive job in the world?
I'm thinking that the Grenell appointment is somewhat of a microcosm of President Trump himself.
Relative to politics and governance, DJT had to take off running and learn as he went. We anticipated this, because an outsider (and one untainted by the Deep State) is EXACTLY what we voted for.
As it turns out, the roll of the dice turned out to be an OVERWHELMINGLY net positive.
There's no reason to expect that other cabinet and appointed positions can't deliver the same excellence. And the fact that they're not coming in, tainted by the Deep State, is a benefit from Day One.
I also think we (the collective "we") tend to read too much into the "expertise" that these bureaucrats are supposed to bring to the table ahead of time. Who is telling us that this "expertise" is essential...? Other bureaucrats...
Names like Vindman and Yovanovitch come to mind immediately...
Your last paragraph; spot freaking on.
At any rate the first word in the job title is “director”, it’s an administrative position, something at which Mr Grenell has excelled since 2001.
Hey, but any angle through which to criticize Trump, amirite?
I offer you the same opportunity. See above.
I have read these links to understand how UNQUALIFIED how Grenell is. Here is a paragraph from one of those links:
“The United States Intelligence Community (IC) is a collection of 17 component organizations within six cabinet departments and an independent agency that all carry out intelligence-related functions. The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) oversees the integration of these intelligence functions, spearheads the support the IC provides to the military and senior policy-makers across the government, and serves as principal intelligence advisor to the President.”
Sounds like my post. Maybe the office of the DNI has “little notion”, also
No because I did not vote for President Obama
Federal law states: “Any individual nominated for appointment as Director of National Intelligence shall have extensive national security expertise.”
50 U.S. Code§ 3023.Director of National Intelligence
Grenell is not qualified for this position based on our federal law.
He's a Trump ass kisser and all around yes man. Only qualifications you need in this administration.
Unfortunately, this seems to be the case!
Well, they can fight Mr. Grenell's appointment in the courts, if they want. In the meantime, we'll get to see what kind of job he can do.
As an amb,he got to see all the intel pertinent to the US in Germany,which likely included things from Russia.'08.
Apparently, your reading comprehension is faulty...maybe English is your second language?
Your link refers to an individual “nominated for appointment...”
Grenell has not been nominated...He has been named acting Director.
His background prior to working for Trump is communications and tweeting. That's almost national security related...
United Nations (2001–2008)
In 2001, Grenell was appointed by President George W. Bush as Director of Communications and Public Diplomacy for the United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations. Serving in that role until 2008, Grenell became the longest-serving U.S. spokesman at the United Nations, advising four different U.S. Ambassadors. During his tenure, Grenell led communication strategies on such issues as the War on Terror, global peacekeeping operations, Iran and North Korea's nuclear weapons programs, and the UN Oil for Food corruption scandal.
In 2009, Grenell founded Capitol Media Partners, an international strategic media and public affairs consultancy with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C. He was under contract with Fox News where he worked as a contributor, commenting on foreign affairs and the media. He has written for The Wall Street Journal, CBS News, CNN, Politico, Huffington Post, The Washington Times, Newsmax, and Al Jazeera. In 2012, CNN ranked Grenell's social media outreach as one of the top 5, and Time magazine named Grenell as one of the Top 10 Political Twitter Feeds of 2014. In 2013, Grenell was a signatory to an amicus curiae brief submitted to the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage during the Hollingsworth v. Perry case.
Good thing we had all those qualified people in 2003 determining Iraq had WMD so all us saps could have the paid vacations in the desert. Nothing gained in 20 years. In same place after 1,000 of dead,trillions of dollars spent
Screw those intelligence experts. Give me Grenell any day
“President Donald Trump’s pick of U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell for acting director of national intelligence (DNI) is an inspired one of great symbolic and substantive significance.
In staffing another crucial position in the executive branch with someone who genuinely shares his worldview, instincts, and tenacity, President Trump is signaling to the Trump-haters of the administrative state, and its Deep State apotheosis, that those who reject or actively seek to undermine his America First agenda will no longer be welcome in meaningful positions.” (more at link)
Since CNN is apoplectic over this announcement, it must be the right move.
