My hope is that Trump’s legacy will be the overhaul & reorganization of our intelligence agencies. I think it’s coming (in some form or another) but that he’s waiting for his second term. Here’s one way to do it:
If I were the bad orange man, my first order of business upon being reelected would be to fire the current DNI and appoint one who is fully on board with getting rid of the DNI — we just wouldn’t go public with that until after he’s been confirmed.
The next step would be to fire Wray and appoint a new FBI director. Nothing personal — just need somebody fresh. Preferably someone who hasn’t worked too closely with the FBI in the past.
The new director would assist in step three, which would be to reorganize the FBI. Their purview is massive — break ’em up. The agency responsible for investigating federal crimes does NOT belong functioning as an intelligence agency. Let Homeland worry about domestic terrorism and the CIA handle foreign.
Step four would be the dissolution of the NSA. Split their functions accordingly between the NRO, the CIA, and Homeland.
Step five? Gut the CIA. Specifically the Directorate of Support, which is the most massive of the five and has gradually been taking over by the same intersectional ideology plaguing our universities. The function of the DOA should be mission support — that is all.
Trump will mostly have to carry this one out via executive order for a number of reasons. I think the only reason he hasn’t handled it already is that he’s afraid of how it’ll look when he lays off thousands of black women — and no, I’m not being hyperbolic in the least.
After that, I’d deal with the House Democrats. HPSCI doesn’t have nearly as much oversight as they like to pretend, quite simply because the House Dems have a culture of handling sensitive information carelessly, which allows their staffers to “innocently” leak things to the press and get away with it.
(If caught, they’ll quietly be dismissed, but I’ve heard of a few cases in which they were successfully prosecuted.)
It’s gotten so bad that people will routinely refuse to answer questions from the committee, even after they’ve been (emptily) threatened with contempt.
I’d force the DOJ to expend resources prosecuting even the mildest of leaks — including the congressmen themselves — until they got the fucking message and cleaned up their act. If there’s going to be a House oversight committee — and I think there ought to be — then it shouldn’t be just for show.
It’s almost impossible to fire federal employees (particularly anyone who isn’t a cis white male), hence the use of “Turkey Farms” to move the incompetent and problematic to positions where they can cause the least amount of harm.
This is a step in the right direction, but what they REALLY need to do is dismantle the various diversity departments within the individual agencies. These are the people hiring on the basis of skin color and ethnicity.
These are the people dictating who is worthy of promotion to positions they know little to nothing about. They sit on committees, and the burden is on YOU to prove that you aren’t discriminating against all other possible candidates in your effort to promote a white male.
For the record:
The “1st” wave was the suffragettes. Not so much an ideology as a movement.
2nd-wave feminism happened around the seventies. Started off as a movement, but quickly became infiltrated by cultural Marxists. Would later be used to rationalize much of the third-wave feminist nonsense.
3rd-wave (“radical”) feminism started off with the riot girl scene — female punk rockers with little to no talent or concept of propriety. It would eventually make its way to the universities to merge with what second-wave feminism had become (Womyn’s Studies) and the growing push for diversity and multiculturalism.
4th-wave feminism is characterized by intersectionality. (Because multiculturalism wasn’t “diverse” enough.) This one originated squarely in the universities with the feminist appropriation of LGBT issues and the advent of modern “Gender Studies”.
(“Gender Studies” actually used to refer to the branch of Womyn’s Studies that dealt with male/female relations. Back when there were still only TWO genders.)
