ORDER OF THE DAY

Update: We cannot make this up if we tried. There are multiple stories that smart and talented people are refusing to work for the current administration. This is especially true in the State Department. 
Meet Heather Nauert (R, state of confused).  In commenting on the strong relationship between the US and Germany, the United States State Department Official spokesperson Heather Nauert said this: 

"We have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said during a briefing Tuesday. "Looking back in the history books, today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion.”

Rumpole says:  Um.mm... true. June 6 is the anniversary of the D-Day Invasion. But perhaps we need a history lesson. Soldiers from the US, England, Canada, Australia, and Poland invaded France. But we were NOT at war with France. France was occupied by Germany. Germany had invaded France. The soldiers on the beach who were firing at our soldiers were...GERMAN. They were Nazis. 
D-Day is many many things. It may be our finest hour. It is the shining example of what America can do when we all pull together.  But what D-Day is most certainly not is an example of US-German friendship and good relations. 

But just because most junior high-school students know about D-Day doesn't necessarily mean some empty chuckleheaded millennial working for the State Department should know this. I mean, it was like, uh, 74 years ago doncha know?

74 years ago, American democracy, American power, American young men- saved the world.

General Dwight Eisenhower, commander of all allied forces in Europe made perhaps the most momentous decision of the war in deciding on June 5, after prior postponements to issue a go and set into motion an armada of thousands of ships and airplanes and hundreds of thousands of men. 



For those of you who do not work for the State Department and wish to know more about what one general called "the day of days" we recommend the following reading: 
"The Longest Day" by Cornelius Ryan is the seminal book on the subject. However, the book is somewhat dated and Stephen Ambrose book on D-Day contains more updated information based on the release of papers by the Eisenhower library, and declassified information by the DOD. Ambrose's book "Band of Brothers" is also a classic, following Easy Company of the 506 PIR of the 101 Airborne from it's formation in Currahee, Georgia through the jump into Normandy, the jump into Holland, holding the line as a rifle company against panzer divisions  in the brutal winter at Bastonge when surrounded in December, 1944, and the invasion of Germany.  Work your way through those three books and we will be happy to recommend some more. 

Coming soon. More history lessons. Neither Canada nor Ethiopia invaded DC and burned the White House. But this close ally did....

Have we become the “Kardashian Nation” (trademark pending)? Mrs. Fat Butt wiggles a meeting with the Donald and the next thing you know, she gets a pardon granted? WTF?! You need to comment on this Rumpy. A life sentence for drug trafficking was wrong but really, WTF?!

THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

AND YOUR NEXT US ATTORNEY for the Southern District of Florida, will be .....

JUDGE ARIANA FAJARDO ORSHAN.

Today, more than 500 days into his administration, and after much speculation, Trump nominated Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Ariana Fajardo Orshan to become the next US Atty.

Judge Fajardo Orshan is a graduate of Nova Law. Directly out of law school in 1996, she became an ASA and worked for KFR for six years before joining a family law firm where she spent the next nine years. While there she married her law partner Robert Orshan.

In 2012, Gov. Scott appointed her to the Circuit Court. She then won a six year term in 2014 unopposed.

If she is confirmed, that will open up yet another seat on the Circuit Court bench.

CAP OUT .......

Who cares how is was put in motion if it was a just result? I mean, really, who freaking cares?

Really?! Nice woman but U.S. Attorney for South Florida, one of the busiest jurisdictions in the U.S.? With no federal experience? With no leadership experience? Am I missing something here?

Sometimes it is the process, not the results that count. The optics with Trump’s pardons are horrible. And now that he knows he has such power, and other celebrities know he will act on their suggestions, as he also did with Sylvester Stallone’s plea for a pardon of Jack Johnson, look out! It will be The Apprentice For Pardons!

Congratulations, but what about cleansing the USAO of its scandals?
