Trump's Race To The Bottom, Con't

The reason white supremacist Stephen Miller has been employed by the White House is because Donald Trump is a white supremacists too, and calls for Miller's firing are going nowhere precisely due to that fact.

In a statement obtained by The Hill Saturday, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley defended Miller and argued that the report demonstrates an anti-Semitic attack by the left.

“I work with Stephen. I know Stephen. He loves this country and hates bigotry in all forms – and it deeply concerns me as to why so many on the left consistently attack Jewish members of this Administration,” Gidley said in a statement obtained by The Hill.

Gidley’s statement comes amid calls from Democratic lawmakers such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) calling for Miller to resign.

Soon after the SPLC’s report broke on Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham attacked the SPLC, saying that the organization is “beneath public discussion.”

“We have not seen the report,” she said in a Tuesday statement. “The SPLC, however, is an utterly-discredited, long-debunked far-left smear organization that has recently been forced – to its great humiliation – to issue a major retraction for other wholly fabricated accusations.”

That's right, if you point out Stephen Miller is a racist, according to the White House, not only are you the real racist, you're also antisemitic. Miller's too valuable to Trump to ever get rid of because he's Jewish, and using that fact solely for political cover is...yeah, you get the picture.

But remember Stephen Miller's goal is to end immigration, both illegal and legal, and start reducing America's population of "non-desirables" through mass incarceration and deportation.  More and more, it looks like the Trump regime is going to start testing this process in California as anyone in the regime who objects is being purged by Miller.

A top federal homelessness official announced Friday that he has left his post at the Trump administration’s request, an unexpected move that comes as the White House plans a sweeping crackdown aimed at homelessness in California.

Matthew Doherty, executive director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, wrote in an email to colleagues that the administration “no longer wishes to have me” in the position. Doherty also announced on Twitter that he was leaving at the administration’s request.

“It has been an incredible honor to serve at USICH, and I do feel like I am leaving on my own terms,” Doherty said in an email obtained by The Washington Post. “I believe that I have been able to keep my integrity intact; but, they have now told me to pack my things up and go.”

The Trump administration is still actively exploring options for a crackdown on homelessness aimed at California, a process that has been ongoing for months, according to one person with knowledge of the planning who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal information.

Doherty was appointed in 2015 under the Obama administration to lead the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, which is tasked with coordinating the federal response to homelessness across 19 agencies, including the Departments of Housing and Urban Development; Education; Labor and Commerce.

The council is chaired by Frank Brogan, an assistant secretary at the Education Department. For a while in the Obama administration, the council was chaired by the labor secretary, which suggests that the Trump administration has lowered its status.

The council so far has not been involved in planning the administration’s executive actions on homelessness, according to a separate person with knowledge of the administration’s planning who also spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters. The council was created in 1987 and is supposed to coordinate the government’s approach to tackling homelessness. It is unclear who will lead the organization now. Doherty is still listed on its website as the executive director.

The infrastructure put in place to make the federal government more responsive to homelessness is being dismantled for a reason, and that reason is to leave individual states overwhelmed by the problem, declare and emergency, and then implement draconian measures to "fix it".

California indeed has a growing homelessness problem, and years of awful zoning laws and NIMBY liberals are to blame, but don't forget that the Trump regime is now making it worse on purpose.
