And let’s just look at some of the managers Tom Brandon has promoted, protected, cleared, and hidden in the months he has been DD. We have Wilfart ‘Call Me Larry Ford’ as Tom’s right hand man for the moment. Then it’s back home to Chicago for Wilfart. Plus, Tom has just appointed Wilfart to the new “Diversity Panel”. The very same Wilfart ‘Call me Larry’ Ford who was found guilty by a jury of reprisal. Great choice Tom! Good job Wilfart!
Now we have Sic’em Scottie apparently on per diem in S.F. with no work to distract him from his continued retaliation towards the field. Great decision Tom! Good job Sic’em!
And of course, as always, there’s Kelvin Crenshit. Tom cleared him almost overnight and put him right back on his SAC throne in Seattle where he can go right back to terrorizing his employees. Great judgement Tom! Good job Crenshit!
Oh, and let’s never forget Eleanor ‘Screw EEO’ Loos. Tom has asked her to take time out of her “ethics” work to sit on the “Diversity Panel” with Wilfart. Now here is the QUEEN of discrimination, reprisal, lies, deceit, and treachery. I do not know of anyone who has destroyed more ATF employees’ lives than this monster. Eleanor has about as much business on a diversity panel as she has in the Ethics department. Wow, you outdid yourself on this one Tom. You could not have made your intentions any clearer to the field if you had screamed “SCREW YOU ALL” with a bullhorn. Way to go Tom! Good job Loos!
Everyone, these are Tom’s people and he is one of THEM. Tom is not a “nice guy”. Minimally, he does not have the spine and integrity that a marine or a leader should have. Tom is showing us who he is. I think it’s time we started to believe him.
One confidential witness told Congress that he overheard Scot Thomasson, chief ATF spokesman, say early on in the congressional inquiry into Fast and Furious: “We need to get whatever dirt we can on these guys [the whistleblowers] and take them down.” This gives some real insight into the ‘let’s move forward and don’t look back’ philosophy of Jones and Brandon. Oh no, we wouldn't want to take at look back at that shit would we?
Scott Sic'em Thomasson was Tom Brandon’s selection for Acting SAC in S.F. Scott did such a fine job in his last position (DAD in charge of attacking the Fast and Furious whistleblowers), that Tom has forgotten to bring Thomasson back to his spider-hole in HQ. Maybe Tom has also forgotten that there are already two ASACS in S.F. It would seem logical to me to send Sic’em Scottie back to HQ and make one of the ASACS acting until Joe “R U” Riehl (yet another “excellent” choice you made there Tom) reports permanently. Tom, isn’t that what would normally be done? When you tell the field agents that there is no money for their moves, or training, or equipment; why are you wasting it like this UNLESS Scott has a specific job to do, like say, continuing to try and discredit any employees who are shining a light on all the CRAP going on under your “leadership” Tom.
Come on Tom, bring Sic’em back to home base. I have a feeling that more people out there in your neck of the woods are going to want to be talking to him. Wouldn’t he be more convenient if he’s right there in D.C.? You know, what with depositions, testimony, interviews and what not.
So Tom, Madea has a few more quick questions and she respectfully asks that the answers be broadcast (laughing here).
Question #1 - What the hell is Scott Sic’em doing in S.F.?
Question #2 - What VACANT GS 15 position is he filling now in S.F?
Question #3 - Is Scott on per diem? Oh Tom, please tell me he’s not because you have told so many that your decisions are based on “good business decisions for the agency”. Um Tom, is this a wise move to continue the legacy of rewarding chosen people per diem for doing nothing?
Question #4 - Is Scott on a detail to S.F.? Oh Tom, please tell me this isn’t so because I have a memo signed by the all-knowing William McMahon that you can not place a person on a detail longer than 12 weeks. Tom, I can’t figure out how all those people have been assigned to details in excess of 12 weeks. Ya know Tom, one of them was assigned to your office longer than 12 weeks.
Question #5 - Tom, are you double encumbering a position in S.F.? Please tell me that’s not so.
Tom, why don’t you have your Chief of Staff knock out the answers to these questions in the spirit of transparency and accountability. Looking forward to your response. Oh, wait a minute Tom, Serres is still looking for package #1 and I don’t want him to interrupt his focus. Maybe you can just have Scott provide the answers. Um, no, that wouldn't be good either. He’s probably digging up dirt on everyone out west. Let’s face it Tom, you really don’t give a rat’s ass to respond to the field in any way do you?
Well, here’s Madea’s answer to the field......the only role that no good bastard can have is as a floater. An official investigation, NOT conducted by ATF has uncovered Scott Thomasson’s role in retaliation. Does Tom send Scott home to sit in the naughty chair? No Tom does not. Tom sends him right into the field where he can do the most damage. After all, can't dig up much dirt on the field if you're in HQ can you?
It is my suggestion with this latest move by Brandon, that everyone write their congressmen and senators and point out that the TV nanny could do a better job of running ATF than the dynamic duo of Tom and Todd. What you are witnessing here folks is another Fast and Furious in the making.
