It all starts at Chief of staff and works down from there.  I think the son in law is not experienced in DC politics.  Trump should seek someone somewhat opposite of himself that he can trust beyond belief.  Sessions fits the bill perfectly. 

Mike Lee voted for McMullin, he will not be rising this cycle.

Yea son in law would be a bad choice. Inexperienced, and the immediate stench of nepotism. And yea on Lee, since one of trump's many flaws is that he can hold a petty grudge.

I am all for giving up on some grudge's, like Ryans.  Lee that worshiped at the nevertrumper temple, not just until the end.  He remains there even after the it is all over. 

You surely cannot expect Trump to bend the knee to someone that is trying to put it to him in the rear end.  That is something you would expect of a Bush or McConnell and we wanted Trump for this very reason.  Not saying he should 'punish' Lee, but he should not invite him to the inner circle either.

Agreed. I wasn't clear on the level of Lee's nevertrumpism. Don't need that negative energy while donald is MAGA.

Pence taking over for Christie as Transition Team Leader is very wise. And Sessions right-hand-man, Rick Dearborn, is taking over for Rich Bagger who is christie's guy. Very nice. This bodes well.

Going to steal that for my anti-police thread.  "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" crowd need to be called out.

The House Freedom Caucus were making a pretty good run at Ryan.  They just were unable to get others to join them.  They decided that a fight with endless amounts republican unity erupting out at the same time would be bad.

Lets see what Pence patches together. Let him send out feelers, and then let Trump make the call. I must say that Trump should surround himself with like minded people. No sense in putting the same RINOS right back in position to influence anything. Go Tea Party, and really piss off the establishment. Remember, this election was all about draining the swamp. We may need an experienced Sherpa Guide or two, but we don't need any perpetual DC RINOS and Lobbyists involved. We have started a revolution, now it's time to get the Dems to revolt against their masters. It does no good for one party to liberate itself, while the other blindly allows itself to be corrupted by the same hacks. The Dems had a shining moment, and the momentum with Bernie, but their own establishment squashed their voice, and continued the DNC power establishment. They were this close to sealing the deal, and were sold out by their own party officials. Their voice has been rendered irrelevant. They were sold out, and they riot in the streets, aiming their anger at an outsider that just slayed the very insiders they object to. The protesters aren't Democrats, they are Soros paid thugs. The average Democrat was slapped upside the head, and left in the back alley to be robbed of their self dignity, and pissed on by the DNC. And yet they hate Trump.

Nikki Haley meeting with Trump today - rumored for SOS, but I can't see her in that spot.

Smart move on Trump's part - she is a rising star in the party.

I agree. It's also conciliatory for uniting the GOP and shows some effort at diversity.

That would be a YUGE appointment and a brilliant move.

Excellent progress.

What do you make of the Haley for UN posting? Is that a good one, or irrelevant? I kinda thought that the UN was obsolete. Did she take it because it positions her for something better down the road? Somebody educate me on this one.

Seems to me like it gets her out of SC, where she is in her 2nd term anyways, and closer to the Establishment crowd that she so wants to be a part of.

The less cynical person could see a path where it raised her visibility, depending upon what issues come up, and how visible that position allows her to be.  Lets her learn her way around the world, to be SOS later, or improve her value as a VP or POTUS candidate later.

Personally, I think she is escaping to NY, where there are no reminders of the Confederacy - no flags, no memorials, no remembrances.  That sort of stuff offends her deep first generation American immigrant sensibilities and her NAACP pals.

Aaaaahhhh yes I bet that is it, she wants to escape the Confederacy. She has a hankering to be more metrosexual and worldly. And agreed, it does seem to lend itself to learning some of the SOS ropes for later.

I'm sure it's a leadership-in-training position in her eyes.

Her single greatest "accomplishment" as Governor - full capitulation to the SJW's.

Raises visibility.  Checkbox in the foreign affairs department.  Governors make great POTUS candidates, except they are generally viewed as weak on foreign affairs. 

Trump has positioned himself to use both NATO and UN in the middle east.  I believe that to be the end move.  He views both organizations as tools.  Both the implement tool and the dufus tool.  As hand tools they are fully broken for any use by the US.  That is why he spent quite a bit of energy dressing them down.  Both NATO and UN are populated by careerists that only really care about keeping job.  

I believe that when dealing with the middle east we must stop telegraphing our movements.  We need to start coming at those guys with a extremely varied attack.  We need to create maximum flexibility.  We want to work with Russia when they fight ISIS we do that.  We want to contain Asad, we use UN sanctions against Asad, while fighting with the Russians against ISIS.  We want to suppress the Turks efforts against the Kurdish freedom fighters, we change NATO's charter and use them against the Turks.  We beef up the Isrealli mossad with covert funding.  

Basically we go full on arsehole on the whole bunch.  We let everyone know you are either our friends or you are our enemies.   If you are in the enemy camp we will come at you from so many angles, all at the same time.  Covertly CIA, standing army, drones, capture and interrogate,  NATO, UN, Isreali's, Isreali mossad, play Iran against Saudi, play Quatar against Oman, play Turks against Kurds, play Asad against ISIS.... we just keep adding to the play list, always new angles.   We do the exact opposite of what Obama just tried.  The exact opposite of what Obama tried is not what Bush tried. 

We turn your marine hero Mad Dog completely loose on them.  We set it up all up by letting the middle east know they should not have f--ked with us in the first place.  We apologize for creating confusion after Bush treated you like the 1942 European theater, and Obama treated you like a lost puppy dog.  We feel bad that we confused you in such a manner.   However, you should not have f--ked with us in the first place. 

I give you two quotes from Mad Dog

"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f--- with me, I'll kill you all.".   

"We've backed off in good faith to try and give you a chance to straighten this problem out. But I am going to beg with you for a minute. I'm going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years."

I fully believe Mattis is capable of realizing his full potential.
