The mystery behind the Anonymous opinion editorial in the New York Times in 2018 is a mystery no more: it was former Department of Homeland Security bureaucrat Miles Taylor.

I know, you are wondering who the heck is that? Even if he put his name on it most people would’ve had no idea who he was outside of Washington D.C. In fact, the same goes for most people inside Washington D.C.

Like many bureaucrats with self-delusional importance Taylor wasted no time trying to make a big splash about his pontifications of President Donald Trump’s administration and how he believed it would be better run by someone with his impeccable President George W. Bush day credentials.

He’s a pompous ass. Literally, he’s an attention seeking bureaucrat that didn’t have the guts to put his name on the opinion editorial or leave his position at Department of Homeland Security when he claims Trump’s decisions were a national security issue.

Just watch the clip from CNN below. This is the one where he lies about being Anonymous before he admits being anonymous.

He was also the anonymous author of “A Warning,” a really terrible book he wrote the following year.

He admitted he was Anonymous in a three-page statement he posted online.

He described the President as “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective” roiled Washington and set off a hunt for his identity. And the New York Times statement when they ran this bureaucrats anonymous opinion piece attempted to try to explain the very ludicrous decision with

The Times is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure.

Well, there you have it an unsatisfied bureaucrat who was angry at his boss finally came out into the open and guess what, I didn’t really know who he was before and I don’t really care to know about him now.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
