Mattis seeks out Soros-funded think tanker for top Pentagon post
Conservative Review ^ | March 22, 2017 | Jordan Schachtel

Posted on 03/22/2017 10:48:46 AM PDT by huldah1776

Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis wants to nominate a senior fellow at a Soros-funded think tank as undersecretary at the Pentagon, as the embattled Cabinet official continues to clash with the White House over prospective nominees.

Politico reports that Mattis wants Rudy deLeon — a senior fellow at the far-left Center for American Progress (CAP) — to come on board as undersecretary for personnel and readiness.

DeLeon previously served in the Clinton administration as deputy secretary of defense. During that time, Gen. Mattis served as his senior military assistant.

DeLeon worked for Boeing as senior vice president from 2001 to 2006 and currently serves on the board of major defense company General Dynamics.

This appears to be a peculiar choice for an undersecretary, given that deLeon recently endorsed a letter opposing the president’s immigration moratorium from six terror-linked countries. The letter calls Trump’s national security order “beneath the dignity of our great nation” and advised government workers to apply “discretion,” in an attempt to essentially undermine the president’s initiative.

As a CAP official, he has engaged in campaigns to advance “progressive values.” deLeon advocates for government to take “steps that will be a lasting legacy to the progressive societies for decades to come.” He is also a proponent of President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal with the terror state in Tehran.

Is Mattis a moron, a traitor or both?

Mattis talks a good game, but then actions speak louder than words.

Perhaps Mattis is NOT the man everyone thought he was. He did rise to power under the marxist wanna-be dictator 0bama.

No hiding the fact that if this is true, Mattis is no friend of the Republic by being a bipartisan hirer.

The progre$$ive rot has spread thru the military leadership and deny it as they will, their fruits of the last 4 administrations are evidence of it.. To call Iraq a success now, after its continued strife under “new managemnent” is a testament to failed leadership and lack of focus and adherence to a priority driven agenda in the Middle East, not a progressive one. There is a difference. Hopefully, Mr. Trump will see this appointment for what it is,, embedded surrender, slow, focussed, business as usual for the Left.

jmo folks..

I wanted Duncan Hunter for DefSec but I figured Mattis was a decent pick nonetheless. So far, not impressed at all. Seems like he’s a few clicks left of center.

His nickname should be Madman, instead of Maddog.

He is out of his mind hiring Clinton and Obama hacks.

These guys are looking more and more like Trojan uniparty cabinet heads—e.g., Gary Cohn, the Democrat former Goldman CEO who is his NEA; Tom Price pushing Obamacare 2.0 with both the fiction that real repeal can’t be done in reconciliation and so they just have to extend free coverage to illegal immigrants, while taking away the grandfathered protection that Christian healthcare ministries had under 1.0; and Trump’s lifelong Democrat son-in-law who now appears to be his most influential advisor.

Oy vey is right!
