“Trump withdraws Treasury nomination of former U.S. attorney for D.C. Jessie Liu”
This header titles an article in Stars & Stripes, attributed to Washington Post writer, Keith L. Alexander.
The article questions why the president would withdraw the appointment of Ms. Liu.
But according to his conservative supporters Liu as the president’s nominee was about to face interrogation by senators about her accepting a token jail term for someone in the Mueller probe whose offences normally exacted a far grater jail penalty than the 2 month token.
Though I learned of the likely reason for the withdrawal yesterday, still no one has bothered explaining why the president nominated her in the first place. Since everyone assumes he vindictively removed hostile witness Vindman from the White House; then similarly anyone like Ms Liu who treated his investigators sympathetically during the Mueller investigation, the president should not have nominated for a promotion.

Does NASA know this?
I checked and NASA has nothing about a mysterious radio signal. Do you think someone should tell them?
I remember when former president Obama’s campaign promise was “change”, the “change” that could be believed in that voters have yearned for but have never got. He knew that the word “change” was beloved by everyone because most people believed that “change” resembled the horn of plenty. But real “change” frightens almost everyone: when inquiring about the cause of illness the ancient historian Herodotus said that he believed that illness was caused by “change”. Today almost everyone who says anything about politics hates President Trump -“Trump Haters” – because he threatens to “change” how things are done in the “deep state”- the state – bureaucracy that fears the temporary demands that may be put upon them every election period by disrupting officials who do not understand how things are done. Those whose work days follow procedures for keeping government functioning smoothly fear that anyone not initiated in its ways could be a tyrannical outsider demanding that they perform their duties his way.
“The president retweeted assertions that Romney “stabbed Trump in the back” by joining Democrats in attempts to overturn the 2016 election, and that the Utah senator was connected to unsubstantiated claims that Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, was corruptly involved with the Burisma Holdings energy company in Ukraine.”Feb. 9, 2020
