Trump names Marine general to head Secret Service
« on: April 26, 2017, 08:53:26 AM »
The Marines have landed at the Secret Service, making it the fourth Marine Corps retired general to fill roles in his administration.

Quote
  President Donald Trump picked retired major general and current acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Randolph "Tex" Alles for the post, adding another prominent Marine veteran to an administration rapidly filling with them.

Alles served in the Marine Corps for 35 years as a naval aviator, serving as an instructor at the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School -- better known as Top Gun -- over the course of his career.

According to an official biography, he earned his wings in 1976 and went on to fly five different fighter airframes during his service: the F-4 Phantom II, the Northrop F-5, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the F/A-18 Hornet and the A-4 Skyhawk. In these aircraft, he amassed more than 5,000 flight hours, 300 of them in combat, according to the biography.

( . . . ) Alles will be at least the fourth Marine general to take a prominent position in the Trump administration, joining Kelly; Defense Secretary and retired Marine four-star Jim Mattis; and active-duty Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

I'm wagering that they'll suddenly discover irregularities in his past returns. That and maybe a few illegal alien housekeepers like that moron they tried to name to Labor.

These trash do NOT want to be ordered to pay back taxes, and plenty of IRS employees are in arrears. Then there are the loons covering for half (or more) of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Quote
In 2015, the IRS disciplined nearly 500 of its employees for either not filing their tax returns, filing late, or understating their tax liability. However, the agency only terminated five of its workers for these offenses. The information was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Committee for Efficient Government (CFEG) on April 7, 2016.

The request sought data relevant to the number of employees within the agency who have been punished for irregularities with their tax returns in the last two years, as well as information pertaining to the amount of money the Treasury may still be owed as a result.

The agency’s reply reveals that, in 2015, 378 IRS employees were disciplined for understating their tax liability, while 121 employees were punished for not filing their tax returns or filing late. In 2016, the IRS disciplined 38 of its employees for late filing or non-filing and 72 others for understating their tax liability. As noted above, the IRS fired only five of its employees in 2015 for non-filed or late-filed tax returns and terminated four more in 2016.

While the IRS provided data regarding the total number of employees who were disciplined (items 1, 2, and 3 in the FOIA request embedded below), the agency claims they “found no documents specifically responsive” to the dollar amount owed to the Treasury by IRS employees, the amount of money the IRS has collected from delinquent employees, or the number of employees who have received promotions or bonuses in the last six years while delinquent with their taxes (items 4 through 9).

In other words, the guilty will go unpunished. This new chief is unlikely to change that.

What does this post have to do with the original thread about the Secret Service?

I forgot the transition that the IRS will audit holy hell out of Trump and all cohorts, while ignoring the scandal within their own ranks about unpaid taxes by IRS employees.

Well, the IRS and the Secret Service are both in the Treasury Department...

The Marines have landed at the Secret Service, making it the fourth Marine Corps retired general to fill roles in his administration.

The Marine Corps is the only service that has only operational commands,
no procurement commands.   Less corruption, more character.
Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
-- Barry Goldwater
