  • Wow... More evidence the Left is melting down. Trump fires acting AG

    Trump fired his acting Attorney General for defying him over his ban on Muslim immigration and visas from terrorist states.

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politi...cid=spartandhp

    Whether you agree with the ban or not, the Attorney General works at the pleasure of the President and as his legal representative. An AG, any AG, that defies their boss deserves firing.

    Ms. Yates, a career prosecutor,... is a holdover from President Barack Obama’s administration, where she served as deputy attorney general. She agreed to Mr. Trump’s request to stay on as acting attorney general until Mr. Sessions is confirmed to be attorney general.

    So the AG should just do what is ordered by the President even if it conflicts with the laws of the land and possibly infringes on our constitutional rights?

      Read the article.

      Ms. Yates’s decision effectively overruled a finding by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, which had already approved the executive order “with respect to form and legality.”
      Ms. Yates said her determination in deciding not to defend the order was broader, however, and included questions not only about the order’s lawfulness, but also whether it was a “wise or just” policy. She also alluded to unspecified statements that the White House had made before signing the order, which she factored into her review.
      She didn't like the Executive Order so she wasn't going to defend it. Her personal opinion was the determining factor here, not the legality of the order. She apparently thought the order wasn't "fair and equal" by her Progressive political views so she chose to not do her job and take a personal stand instead. It got her fired, as it should have.

        From your article.

        “At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities, nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful,” Ms. Yates wrote in a letter to Justice Department lawyers.
        She has the right to refuse orders she doesn't feel are lawful and the President has the right to fire her. Not really a big story.

            Was Sally Yates politically to the left, or nowadays is anyone who disagrees with the President now seen as being a communist? My understanding was that prior to this administration Sally Yates commended respect across both side of the American political divide.

            As a matter of interest, do high up government officials serve the constitution or the President?

              Please SPECIFY what Constitutional Rights have been infringed!

              For example:
              U.S.Code 8 -1182(f) Suspension of Entry

              (f) Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

              What part of USA Law are you disputing and disagreeing with here?

                I can agree with you here. Amazing.

                  All Federal employees serve the Constitution.

                  Those emplyed by the Executive Branch also serve the POTUS.

                  Constitution and POTUS aren't always the same. See the past eight years of "Hope-N-Change" Stealth Jihad to grasp some of the nuance.

                    The point I am trying to make is this: Do what the President says or you are fired. What if your President starts screwing with your constitutional rights and orders a ban on something that affects you?

                    T.A.G. stated, "Whether you agree with the ban or not, the Attorney General works at the pleasure of the President and as his legal representative. An AG, any AG, that defies their boss deserves firing."

                    You guys have no issue with this because almost everyone supports Trump's order. What if Bobo was trying to do the same thing by saying 'screw the 2nd Amendment' and the AG said no. Would you want him fired or would you be upset at Bobo for canning him?

                    I am a republican and always have been but this guy is a nutbar! The rest of the world can see his stupidity. You are defending him because you agree personally of what he is doing. Again, what if it was the opposite? You all would be mad as hell and spitting nails!

                    Trump is not making anyone safer. Don't believe that if you want but he has riled up mass amounts of our people and god only knows most of the rest of the world. I don't have the answer to terrorism but I can see this coming back at us with hatred ratcheted up by 3 or 4 times. Why in god's name did we pick him as the Republican nomination and eventual president?

                        Trump can almost accomplish much of this just by firing the brain-dead Maobamabot Zombies who are still acting as it Clinton won the election...

                          Acting Attorney General Yates did what she believed was both ethical and legal and cannot be faulted for her actions.

                          She undoubtedly understood that she would be fired by Bannon through Trump. Seems to me that Bannon is pulling the strings in the White House now.

                          The US attorney general is bound to obey the law and follow the Constitution. Yates most certainly did and has been vilified personally by the middle school kids who now run the White House.

                            That being the case, then he should not have appointed who he did as the new acting attorney general, as he is an Obama appointee.
