RE: Who should be in Trump's cabinet?
My only concern with Rhee is I thought she supported common core, which federalizes the school system, whereas it should be localized. Hopefully she makes her portions more clear.

RE: Who should be in Trump's cabinet?
Rhee apparently had some issues with school choice and such as well and her husband is connected to some kind of sex scandal with a 17-year-old girl which is the last thing Trump needs. See http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/...le-choice/

Mattis apparently has aggressive views toward Iran which I don't like at all, but nevertheless he's highly, highly respected by the military, which we arguably need right now and we need a warrior that's gonna take no shit with ISIS. We just have to put our faith in Trump to steer whoever he appoints that have differences with him (inevitable) in the direction he wants.

I don't like Mnuchin for treasury at all. Is there anyone else on the radar?

I had no idea General Flynn is a paid shill for Erdogan, very strange turn of events. So is he 100% confirmed as a National Security Advisor?

Interesting.

There's a link to an article in the comments that claim the Turkey connection is being played up to discredit Flynn, just like they're trying to smear Bannon.

http://thesaker.is/fear-and-loathing-ins...eep-state/

I can't say for certain either way. Definitely not good if Flynn is lobbying for Turkey.

Trump tweeted positively about Mad Dog Mattis this morning.

Looks solid for SoD.

He'd need a congressional waiver since he's only been retired for 3 years, but he'd most likely get it. He has bipartisan support.

RE: Who should be in Trump's cabinet?
Per Bloomberg, the list for SoS looks pretty weak.

"Besides Romney, Trump’s short list to become the nation’s top diplomat is said to include former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Senator Bob Corker from Tennessee, John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the UN, and Nikki Haley, the governor of South Carolina."

I don't like Rudy in this role, and the rest are neocon cucks.

There are two possible names for Treasury:
Jeb Hensarling: Representative from Texas, chairman of House Financial Services Committee. (This guy will probably be the most likely pick.)
Tom Barrack: Founder of Colony Capital, real estate and private equity investor.
Jamie Dimon is another name that's been mentioned as well.

Add two more possible names for SoS:
Richard Haass: president of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Zalmay Khalilzad: Former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan.

RE: Who should be in Trump's cabinet?
Rhee sounds great. Education needs parameters and goals to be set but the methods should be up to the individual school systems. A family member is a teacher and was explaining to me that the idea behind common core is that if a student transfers from Oregon to North Carolina over Christmas break in 7th grade, they should be able to seamlessly integrate into the class with no catch up time. I find that to be completely "lowest common denominator thinking" and begs the questions, why move to a better community and pay more in property taxes if the quality of education is the same five towns over with property values 30% lower?

Mattis seems good accept for the Iran talk. Iran is fighting ISIS. We all know who funds ISIS.

Trump is meeting with Rahm Emmanuel's brother today. No idea why. Any guesses?

Corey quit his job at CNN, he more like to be press secretary.

I found a long video of him, unlike CNN where everybody is talking over somebody else, here he speaks freely.

Perfect pick. Rudy Giuliani for head of FBI. Fuck James Comey.

Who do we even want for secretary of state at this point? If it isn't Sessions, or Newt, I thought maybe Guiliani? I sure as hell hope it isn't Romney, he is the king of cucks and was against Trump the entire election.

Jim Webb would be my pick. Sos or SoD.

With Flynn at Nat. Sec. and Mattis potentially at SoD, the Webb pick just gets even more perfect.

The former two are your experts in the Middle East, which is more of a military operation; and Webb is your expert in Asia, which is more of a political situation.

Common Core was created as a stunt so paper pusher bureaucrats could evaluate and measure outputs. For hack Govt workers the success of the program does not mean anything, what matters is the ability to guage progress infinitely.

If Common Core succeeded in boosting performance then it would have to ramp down which is a no no in policy programs.

So now you get some LCD program where programs are structured to lean towards the bottom with a heavy emphasis on testing scores which then get cooked by the teachers. Their measures go up while kids get more dumb and then end up justifying the need for more money and program expansions.

Localized school systems that offer different curriculum that caters to local needs and the abolishment of enforced school zones would mean schools would focus on quality education or risk loosing funding. DC hates that as it is difficult to normalize and track. Public Health suffers from the same dog shit approach. The women who dominate these fields are obsessed on evaluation processes and have no care for efficiency or results based systems.

Ok back in reality these connections have consequences. I love the Ari Gold character and think Jeremy Piven's performance in that role is a top 5 performance in any show.

But, did you know that Ari was Trump's agent? And basically distanced himself during the whole election.

The most powerful man in Hollywood once represented you and now all of hollywood is attacking you. Oh, weird.

And Ari's brother was the CoS for Obama.

Seems weird, no?

Guys hate to burst your bubble about Maddog but he can't be SECDEF

Title 10 states there's a 7 year waiting period.

He retired 13' so he'll eligible in a few years.

HOWEVER, Trump could get congress to give Mattis a waiver. After all the Repubs have the majority now.

Last time that was done was in 1950 with Gen Marshall.

Flynn denies he has taken any money from Turkish government sources, in The Hill article, but the Daily Caller found:

Quote:Flynn Intel Group, the consulting firm that Flynn founded in Oct. 2014, just after leaving DIA, was recently hired to lobby Congress by a Dutch company called Inovo BV that was founded by a Turkish businessman who holds a top position on Turkey’s Foreign Economic Relations Board.

http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/11/trumps...z4QgY8CrLw

The Daily Caller has provided viewable documentation. Not looking good for Mr. Flynn, which is a damn shame because I really liked the guy. Why is it so hard to find a general who isn't a total neocon nowadays? On the other hand, as long as Flynn's advice on Turkey is taken with a grain of salt, perhaps the rest of his advice is sound?

Because the process of becoming a general, as accurately described by John Reed, is a "30 year, single elimination suck up marathon". When the establishment are neocons that can only result in neocon generals.

Ari is no longer as powerful as he used to be, there have been a lot of changes in Hollywood. Besides him being Trump's agent, Trump sold one of his companies to ARI(the modelling agency). Ari is in a middle of a big fucking feud with a bigger more powerful agency and many of the top clients have left or threatened to leave. He has bought himself some time by getting a chinese billionaire to invest in company as he diversifies into non-agent areas.
