Alexander Vindman wasn’t the only person to lose his spot on the National Security Council. On Monday, the Trump administration wiped out a number of positions, including many people who remained holdovers from the Obama years. Here’s the scoop, via Washington Examiner:

President Trump is making good on his promises to “drain the swamp” and cut Obama-era holdovers from his staffs, especially the critical and recently controversial National Security Council.

Officials confirmed that Trump and national security adviser Robert O’Brien have cut 70 positions inherited from former President Barack Obama, who had fattened the staff to 200.

Trump on Vindman…

Continued…

The next position that Vindman is likely to hold will be at the Pentagon where he will sit under Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who stated last summer that Vindman wouldn’t be facing any sort of punishment for his actions.

Despite playing such a significant role in the impeachment trial, Vindman is lucky to be getting off with only a slap on the wrist, so this is an opportunity he better not squander.

Another one may not come along the next time.

Wonder if Obama lost money during his two terms?

What’s a billion dollars to a multi-billionaire? Probably nothing. But what’s a billion dollars to a man with an ego the size of Donald Trump’s? Probably a lot. That being said, the duly-elected POTUS didn’t care about losing money. He’s not dumb. He knew what he was getting in to when he ran declared his candidacy back in 2015. But losing a billion dollars is what can happen when you don’t take a salary or make any business deals for four solid years. From USA Today: WASHINGTON – The presidency appears to have cost Donald Trump more than $1 billion in wealth. Trump tumbled nearly 300 spots on Forbes’ billionaire rankings during his presidency, the magazine reported this week, with his estimated wealth falling from $3.5 billion to $2.4 billion during his four-year term. CONTINUED: That’s still good enough for 1,299th place on the magazine’s new billionaire list, down from 1,001st last year. The list is topped by a frequent political target of Trump: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, whose wealth is tagged at $177 billion.

Report: Antifa Radicals Tried Burning Down Building with Federal Agents Inside (Watch)

You’d think this would be bigger news!!

What else is there to say about “antifa?” The radical group is comprised of anti-American children who don’t want to work and demand everything come free. They also don’t care how many innocent people die for their “cause,” either. Check this out, via Right Scoop: CNN only mentions Antifa when they’re arguing that Trump and Republicans believe in conspiracy theories about antifa. Otherwise, the group – which they think is an “idea” – is totally off their radar. Like last night, when they tried to burn down a federal building as part of their ongoing insurrection, CNN didn’t cover it. And still haven’t. In fact in the last year they’ve barely talked about violence in Portland, D.C., and elsewhere, except when they could blame it on conservatives. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TomasMorales_iv/status/1381163263992360960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1381163263992360960%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fcnns-best-friends-at-antifa-tried-to-torch-a-federal-building-with-people-inside-in-portland-last-night-on-video%2F From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists.
