....just add to the long list....he was nominated to become permanent but that was pulled last week......now we now why.....


The acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement is leaving

.....The acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement is leaving his post Friday, according to an agency spokesperson, the latest departure in a reshuffling of the Department of Homeland Security.

President Donald Trump had nominated the acting director, Ron Vitiello, to become the permanent head of ICE, but pulled his nomination last week.

A DHS official said the agency received an email Wednesday with the news that Vitiello would be leaving ICE.

Trump announced his decision to rescind Vitiello's nomination last Friday, saying he preferred a nominee who would take the critical immigration agency "in a tougher direction."

"We're going in a little different direction. Ron is a good man, but we're going in a tougher direction," Trump told reporters before a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, when asked about reports that Vitiello's nomination to lead ICE had been withdrawn.

Before Trump's comments, NBC News had reported that Trump had withdrawn the nomination, citing a document sent to members of Congress on Thursday. A DHS official confirmed the document's veracity.

DHS has not said who will replace Vitiello as acting director, but Deputy Director Matthew Albence is next in line.

Vitiello's departure comes after DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was pressured to resign on Sunday and Secret Service Director Tex Alles resigned on Monday.

NBC News reported that Nielsen left because of differences with Trump over restarting a family separation policy for migrants at the border.

Alles announced his departure after a Chinese national was apprehended inside Trump's Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, after getting past initial screening by Mar-a-Lago security.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump had selected James M. Murray, a career member of the Secret Service, to take over as director beginning in May.



just another one.........?!

The general consensus is that the Trump administration is deliberately maintaining a 'temp cabinet' by using the 210 day rule . Thus ensuring that the cabinet is not capable of activating Amendment 25 and declaring Trump incompetent.

Probably got the idea from Steve Job's "Unlicensed Audi" trick.

It was a Mercedes, not an Audi, and I think that story is total BS.

The guy they interviewed only worked for Apple from 1993 to 1997, working on software security / encryption. And Jobs wasn't at Apple during those years.

He's a computer security guy (and the founder of PGP), not a physical security guy.

[en.wikipedia.org]

When that story first came out, I had read other responses from people who had recorded the VIN on Steve's car when they saw it parked at various places, and the VIN wasn't changing every 6 months.

A much simpler explanation would be that the car is legally registered / insured but he didn't attach the plates, and likely kept them in the car in case he got stopped.


But, getting back to 45, he did use a loophole to speed up the process when his private jet was grounded because he didn't renew the registration.

Donald J. Trump has managed to get his once-grounded Cessna jet back in the air, by selling it — to himself.

The private jet that Mr. Trump has been using to get to and from many campaign events was grounded last week by the Federal Aviation Administration, after The New York Times reported that its registration had expired on Jan. 31.

The paperwork problem threatened to ground the 1997 Cessna 750 Citation X for weeks, if not more. But Mr. Trump found a way around this.

On Friday, the plane was registered to a new owner, DT Endeavor I, according to records kept with the F.A.A. DT Endeavor I is a limited liability company that was registered in Delaware in early January, and is controlled by Mr. Trump.

He then submitted a new registration from the new company, a move that cleared the way for the Cessna to fly almost immediately.

“I haven’t flown it, but I can,” Mr. Trump said in an interview on Saturday. He did not mention the sale of the Cessna to the new company but did say the registration issue had been “100 percent” cleared up.

Registering a plane as a new owner is a different process than re-registering an aircraft, and new owners are often given a temporary registration that would allow immediate flight.

The wait Mr. Trump avoided could have been lengthy; the F.A.A.’s aircraft registry website says the agency is still processing documents it received in mid-March.

Jobs car had a barcode where the plate is. Most officers know it means someone who went to the trouble for a little anonymity. Pretty sure Price and I got this during a pilgrimage.

I think it has also been determined that Mercedes put that barcode there, and all cars of that model have them there. Most likely for inventory management. I don't think there's any special meaning regarding CA registration associated with it.

It think it just boils down to "... they're not fond of rules ..."

Granted, I only skimmed this, but I don't see any place where it says that acting cabinet members can't activate Section 4 of the 25th Amendment.

Section 4 is far more complicated than the media has led us to believe. I found this article while Googling on it, and it has made things a lot more clear to me. [nationalaffairs.com]

It’s only a matter of time.

That was a good read, thanks. I knew it wasn't easy, and I guess it shouldn't be.
