RE: Who should be in Trump's cabinet?
I like this Tulsi Gabbard character. Seems one of the last few sane people on the left or anywhere for that matter.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/democrati...d=43696303

(Fake news overall but bear with it)

Quote:Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a high-profile Bernie Sanders supporter during the Democratic primaries, is “under serious consideration” for various Cabinet positions in President-elect Donald Trump's administration, according to a senior official on the transition team.

According to the official, the 35-year-old Hawaii congresswoman is being looked as a candidate for secretary of state, secretary of defense or United Nations ambassador. If selected, Gabbard will be the first woman as well as the youngest pick for Trump's Cabinet.

She met with him this morning in his New York City offices at Trump Tower. The Trump transition source said that their sit-down was a “terrific meeting” and that the Trump team sees her as very impressive.

Gabbard, a progressive Democrat, has bucked her party in Congress and during the contentious Democratic primaries. In February she left her position as vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee to support Sanders. In the House she has broken with Democrats on the Syrian civil war (she supports keeping President Bashar al-Assad in power) and Syrian refugees (she voted for a GOP bill last year to conduct stricter background checks on refugees).

This afternoon she released a long statement on her meeting with Trump, saying he asked to meet with her about "our current policies regarding Syria, our fight against terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, as well as other foreign policy challenges we face.” She said they had a “frank and positive conversation in which we discussed a variety of foreign policy issues in depth."

"I felt it important to take the opportunity to meet with the president-elect now before the drumbeats of war that neocons have been beating drag us into an escalation of the war to overthrow the Syrian government — a war which has already cost hundreds of thousands of lives and forced millions of refugees to flee their homes in search of safety for themselves and their families," she said in the statement, adding that she would not let politics get in the way of meeting with the president-elect. "I never have and never will play politics with American and Syrian lives."

She added that when she disagrees with Trump, "I will not hesitate to express that disagreement."

"However, I believe we can disagree, even strongly, but still come together on issues that matter to the American people and affect their daily lives. We cannot allow continued divisiveness to destroy our country … I shared with him my grave concerns that escalating the war in Syria by implementing a so-called no fly/safe zone would be disastrous for the Syrian people, our country and the world," she said. "It would lead to more death and suffering, exacerbate the refugee crisis, strengthen ISIS and al-Qaeda and bring us into a direct conflict with Russia, which could result in a nuclear war. We discussed my bill to end our country’s illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government and the need to focus our precious resources on rebuilding our own country and on defeating al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups who pose a threat to the American people."

So you would hire someone that isn't a neocon, you'd hire away your best opposition, and you'd neutralize a lot of the left's persuasion game that you're "racist" and you don't have "diversity" in your cabinet?

And Chris Kobach at homeland talking about the wall?

I don't think Trump actually plans on making Romney SoS. It's more of an olive branch move to build good will and keep them out of his way in the future.

And Ari's brother was the CoS for Obama.

Seems weird, no?


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.

Ari for Secretary of State!

I know that it's not going to happen but him + Milo as Press Secretary would be non stop entertainment.

Progressives online are really angry, they say Trump is dismantling the party future, Gabbard was seen as the rising star and possible democrat 2020 candidate to run against Trump, and how Trump is leaving the democrat party with just Establishment old people like Pelosi.

And California coast liberal pelosi is what put the party in its current position, Trump is building a bipartisan support, which at the same ensure a clean win for him in 2020, Democrats won't have new face for 2020, which is what they desperately need right now, if everything goes right as Trump predicts he will win even more share of the democrat voters, this election 10% democrats voted for him, we could see an increase in 2020.

The rumor going around is Sanders may launch a new party with millennial as base block, if that ever happens then the democrats will split so big they will damage for decades to come.

Just saw a tweet (don't know how to copy and past the image) from President-Elect Trump saying he is seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as HUD secretary. I though Carson said he didn't want a cabinet position?

Do it.

I say go for it. Doing so would surely split the lefty vote down the middle, making the Democrats even more irrelevant outside of the People's Republik of Kommiefornia. Trump can get more power in in Congress to get stuff done, more Constitutionalists on the Federal courts and life improves for everyone else.

The great hubris of the Left will be their great undoing.

As the old saying goes: "SJW's always double-down."

Restraint is not in their nature.

Damn...Gowdy made me think when he asked: "Which do you value more, church or freedom?" and "Which do you value more, unity or diversity?"




I hope President-elect Trump will offer Trey Gowdy some type of position in his administration Cabinet.

Great speech there by Gowdy. I corrected the quote though.

RE: Who should be in Trump's cabinet?
Trump chose Nikki Haley to be his UN Ambassador. This is a brilliant move on so many levels. Kills three birds with one stone.

1. "Not racist." Trump chose his first "person of color."

2. "Not sexist." Trump chose his first woman.

Identity politics crowd gets shut up for a while.

3. Classic 48 Laws of Power play. He neutralized a potential rival by putting her in a position of "prestige" that's actually long been a useless post for flunkies. Now she's under his employ and removed from politics while the pro-Trump lieutenant governor of South Carolina takes over.

Not sure I'm happy that Nimrata Randhawa, an enemy both of Trump and of the People, was rewarded for....what, exactly?...but at least now I no longer have to worry she will be Secretary of State, which would be a real slap to the face.

If Trump starts sticking it to the UN, which he has said he will do, then she might be fairly busy and in the spotlight quite a bit.

She is going to have to explain to a bunch of angry globalists that they won't be eating on American taxpayer dime anymore. Hilarious move by Trump.

More important what does Trump do with Jared Kushner? Rumors about Ivanka being Ambassador to Japan or Kushner being some kind of negotiator in the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

Would be great if Ivanka went to Japan, sending Kushner halfway around the world, can't stump the Trump.

I'm pretty sure he can't give Ivanka an Ambassadorship due to the nepotism laws, which ironically, do not prevent campaign bundlers from assuming such posts.

^^ I'm not totally sure about that. I think the law prohibits family members from Cabinet positions (passed against JFK choosing RFK as Attorney General). I don't know if ambassadorship qualifies.

If you're not fucking her, someone else is.
