Trump’s Nominees, So Far.
By Billy Roper
For his White House Counsel, tax attorney Don McGahan. Where’s he been for the last twenty years, when the POTUS-elect really needed him?
CIA Director, Republican Kansas lawmaker Mike Pompeo. A nod to the House Intelligence Community. No, it’s not necessarily an oxymoron. Tea Party remnant.
Ambassador to the United Nations; anti-White, anti-gun, woman, Indian with a dot, Nikki Haley. High caste, but about as likely to be re-elected in her home state as Strom Thurmond, who is dead.
Secretary of Education, voucher school supporter and common core opponent (to get private and charter schools addicted to the Federal dollar and control their curriculi, too) Betsy DeVos.
National Security Advisor: Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, career military. Non-political (i.e., Democrat).
Assistant National Security Advisor, KT McFarland, woman. Outed her gay brother. Much more butch than Flynn.
Attorney General, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, conservative. Confirmation hearings will feature a heartfelt apology over any past racist remarks or sentiments, and an introduction to his black friend.
Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, Secretary of Defense. Called “Mad Dog”. Anti-Islamist. Pro-war in the Middle East. Next stop, Iran.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell’s Asian wife, Elaine L. Chao, Secretary of Transportation. Is that an Asian driving joke?
Wilbur Ross, billionaire investor, Commerce Secretary. Last of the gentile robber-barons.
Todd Ricketts, Deputy Commerce Secretary. Ditto. Co-Owner of the Chicago Cubs. His daddy founded AmeriTrade. Don’t you wish that yours had?
Steven Mnuchin, Jewish Goldman Sachs Banker, Secretary of the Treasury. Former George Schwartz (Soros) employee.
That’s four women and three nonWhites, so far: an Asian, an Indian, and a Jew, the first simply an honorific to establishmentarians in Congress, the second a gift to the people of South Carolina (getting her out of their state), and the third a sign that George Soros will still be controlling monetary policy. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. Expect a token black: Sheriff Clarke or Ben Carson, and a Hispanic, maybe as the head of the White House gardening department.
It’s been too late to petition the government for a redress of grievances for a minute, now. Are you ready to stop placing your hope in the ballot box, yet? No? Okay, just let me know. I’ll be waiting for you to catch up. Remember, though, that every day you cling desperately to that false, dead dream, our percentage decreases. It’s not going to get any better, until we make it better.
