1. One of the hundreds of things that makes Es-President 45 the worst ever

is his overt politicization of Federal offices. Not just the Secret Service, but all of them, and far down the chain of command. DeJoy, the worst, most dishonest and corrupt lying Postmaster General in our history, kept his job because the Postal Board of Governors wanted him to continue on his mission of destroying the postal service. Ex-Prez 45ís last Secretary of Defense, a lame duck, allowed the January 6th insurrection to catch fire and blocked efforts to reinforce the skeleton force of under-equipped police trying vainly to defend against the attack. Virtually all of his appointments to head agencies vital to the nationís security and administration were headed by under qualified loyalists.

Still, politicizing the Secret Service may have been 45ís (I refer to him as Flubbo because, well, it just seems to fit) lowest and most despicable move. Biden would do well to purge the entire force and start all over again, but of course to do so would immediately create accusations of McCarthyism. So Joe will have to go slowly, finding out who are the extremists in the SS and seeing to it that their assignments reflect their negative value to the country, and ensuring that new recruits are vetted to prevent the hiring of borderline traitors, the sorts of men and woman 45 wanted as his praetorian guard.

2. It's Important We Move Fast

Far Right types are plentiful in the Police and Military would be my guess.

We have to move swiftly to weed them out before more carnage occurs.
