Here’s more of that unity thing Joe Biden promised.
The Biden administration on Wednesday fired 18 people appointed to the boards overseeing the nation’s military academies by former President Donald Trump.
According to the Associated Press, those axed included White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, of the Air Force Academy board; former press secretary and U.S. Naval Reserve commander Sean Spicer, Naval Academy; retired three-star general and former national security adviser H.R. McMaster, U.S. Military Academy; and Office of Management and Budget director Russell Vought, also at the Naval Academy.
President Joe Biden had directed them to resign by 6 p.m. Wednesday or be fired. It’s unclear if any of them actually resigned, the AP reported, but several former members of the Trump administration were defiant of the order.
Conway said on Twitter, “President Biden, I’m not resigning, but you should.” She also posted a separate letter she had written to Biden, saying that the termination of Trump officials “certainly seems petty and political, if not personal.” She noted that three former directors of presidential personnel told her the demand departed from past presidential “norms.”
“Your decision is disappointing but understandable given the need to distract from a news cycle that has you mired in multiple self-inflicted crises and plummeting poll numbers, including a rise in new COVID cases, a dismal jobs report, inflation, a record amount of drugs coming across the southern border, and, of course, the chaotic and deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan that has left hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies stranded under Taliban rule,” she wrote. “The result is that faithful and willing public servants will be discouraged or thwarted from service. Our service academies will risk being further politicized and polarized.”
Conway also noted that it was a “privilege” to serve a president who killed terrorists instead of one who got 13 U.S. military personnel killed.
The AP reported that Spicer, Vought, and Jonathan Hiler, a Naval Academy alumnus who served as director of legislative affairs for Vice President Mike Pence, all said they would not resign.
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki defended Biden’s decision, saying in the same breath that it was not political, but then admitting it was.
“The president’s qualification requirements are not your party registration,” Psaki said.
She then added, “They are whether you’re qualified to serve and whether you are aligned with the values of this administration.”
In other words, if you don’t accept Biden’s woke “values,” you cannot serve. Not political at all.

Only 1 reason for these military people that were appointed during the Tru.p administration to be fired.. Nie Bden and the SOCIALIST COMMUNIST DEMOCREEP PARTY IS REMAKING THE MILITARY INTO A POLITIC AND MILITARY ARM OF THE SOCIALIST COMMUNIST DEMOCREEP PARTY. THEY KNOW THAT IF REAL AMERICANS WERE TO STAGE A REAL REVOLT, WHICH BY THE WAY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TAKE BACK THIS COUNTRY, WE WOULD NEED THE US. MILITARY ON OUR SIDE AND UNFORTUNATLY, THAT PROBABLY WON’T HAPPEN! ALL BRANCHES OF OUR MILITARY ARE BEING RUN BY CLINTON, OBAMA AND BIDEN OPERATIVES. YOU CAN FORGET LEGISLATING OR VOTING A REPUBLICAN BACK INTO THE PRESIDENCY IN THIS COUNTRY. BY ELECTION THE THEY CONTROL 100% OF THE VOTES NECCESSARY TO KEEP A SOCIALUST COMMIE DEMOCREEP IN OFFICE FOR THE REST OF THE TIME THIS NATION IS IN EXISTENCE, WHICH MIGHT NOT BE VERY LONG!
Poor David is off his meds, again. Do you know the difference between communism and socialism? I’ll bet that your inbred brain does not. Turn off the Newsmax and leave the conspiracy theories alone for a while. You’ll be a happier person, I promise.
