White House's ultimatum to foreign service officers,fires defiant lawyer

Man you gotta love this.

Get with the program or go! White House's ultimatum to more than 100 foreign service officers as they sign scathing complaint about travel ban
State Department employees harboring anger about President Donald Trump's travel ban are welcome to find a new place to work, the White House said Monday.
The 100 signatories of a dissent memo that's circulating at State 'should either get with the program or they can go,' White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer declared.
 'At some point if they have a big problem with the policies that he's instituting to keep the country safe, then that's up to them to question whether or not they want to stay or not,' Spicer told reporters during his daily briefing.~snip~
The only part I disagree with is giving them the option, anyone who signs the letter should be shown the door. Why keep them if they don't agree with the policies?
Leftist ideologs have been infiltrating government agencies for decades, they all could use a good purging.

Here's an added bonus.

Trump fires top government lawyer for defiance on immigration order
WASHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump fired the federal government's top lawyer Sally Yates on Monday after she took the extraordinarily rare step of defying the White House and saying the Justice Department would not defend his new travel restrictions targeting seven Muslim-majority nations. 
The White House said on Twitter that Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, would replace Yates, an appointee of former Democratic President Barack Obama, as acting U.S. attorney general. 
Yates on Monday told Justice Department lawyers in a letter that they would not defend in court Trump's directive that put a 120-day hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a 90-day bar on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. 
Yates said she did not believe defending the order would be "consistent with this institution's solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right."~snip~
Maybe Trump can do a clean sweep.
