Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, May 18, 2017

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. will leave office next month to accept a federal appointment as an assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He will work in the department's Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments. ... In recent years, he has come under widespread criticism locally for his inflammatory rhetoric and for spending so much time on the road as a [Donald] Trump surrogate and while giving talks to conservative groups. Clarke also has been criticized for his lack of public comments either on his response to four deaths in the County Jail in 2016 or any administrative changes he might have made there.

You mean the "something" that now has Robert Mueller, Former F.B.I. Director, named as Special Counsel for Russia investigation?

That "something"?

Good Find Gracie, it's sort of important for us to know when psychos are appointed to positions in the federal government.

To get there, just watch the guy's performance at the Republican National Convention.

"Try" isn't necessary to get to Racist from here.

It comes naturally, like a bowel movement.

That man is a filthy psychopath. Don't believe me? Check out his department Facebook page, wherein he uses it as a bully pulpit ot insult and intimidate others.

Well at least he isn't really in a position of power now and 'just' an influencer...

Isn't that nice. He's getting rewarded for letting prisoners die of thirst in his jail.

I'm sure many are celebrating this news in Milwaukee.

Actions and appointments, such as this, by Trump bring out the true spirit of the left. Helps to secure 8 years. Awesome.....

"Actions and appointments, such as this, by Trump bring out the true spirit of the left."

Did you see his performance at the RNC? And you still think he's the best choice???

"County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. will leave office next month to accept a federal appointment as an assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security."

Is this a deliberate attempt to do the most ridiculous thing possible? Was that NYC cop who was planning on easting women not available?

I'd love to hear a rational explanation from either Gracie or ATaxPayer on why this is a good choice.

Personally, I have several reasons why I consider this man an absurd excuse for a public servant, and while I'm happy to see him out of Wisconsin, it terrifies me that somebody, somewhere considered him worthy of a promotion.

Nope, no Russian connections here. In Russia at the same time as Flynn. Meeting with foreign minister and deputy prime minister.

#18 Honesty is the best policy. If only these folks were as honest about their Russian connections as they are about their feelings for Democrats.

Ablock, you are giving Clarke too much credit with that comparison.

He sounds like an appointment Trump made personally for his innovations in prisoner treatment.

Good boy Atax. Must be difficult to wake each day and assume your natural role as a traitor to our republic.

That this guy is a major jagov falls under "common knowledge". It is the only reason for his fame.

If you showed up to the conversation not knowing who David Clarke is, that seems to fall under "your problem".

Your mommmy and daddy don't post here. We are not responsible for your education. Do some research and come back when you know who David Clarke is.

Drumpf was disappointed that Frederick Douglass failed to respond to his tweets, so he appointed Clarke

So you want to know more about how Mr Clarke failed in his job?

Milwaukee county murder rate: 6 times as high as the next highest neighboring county
17th highest crime rate in the nation (Chicago Cook County doesn't even crack the top 30)
