Trump confirms former generals James Mattis and John Kelly as defence and homeland security secretaries


“Just hours after President Trump was sworn into office, amid Chuck Schumer’s jabs over HUD, the Senate has confirmed retired Marine General James Mattis as defense secretary and retired Marine General John Kelly as homeland security secretary,” reports Zero Hedge.

Let s hope Kelly doesn t propose using private NWO Globalist security firms like G4S or Dyncorp to guard America’s southern border. Their record is terrible.

Guarding the border is a job for a well paid, well trained, well equipped federal agency which is fully accountable for its performance to Congress and the Senate and to Donald Trump.

Personally, I have confidence in the integrity of Mattis and Kelly. They are soldiers who have had to produce results in the real world, in real wars, or suffer the consequences i.e. death, defeat, disgrace.

Mattis’ Senate Hearing confirmed he understood the need to get appointed in the first place by saying the things Senators wanted to hear. A very promising sign he will be able to bridge the military civilian divide.
