Default Trump's cabinet... what happened to "drain the swamp" and anti-establishmentarianism?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...-a7409126.html

List reveals Sarah Palin and Chris Christie as well as oil tycoons and bankers in Donald Trump's possible cabinet
President-elect's transition team compiles options including figures from private sector

Sarah Palin, governor Chris Christie, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, defeated Republican rival Ben Carson and a slew of private sector executives are among the contenders for top positions in Donald Trump’s cabinet.

A list of 41 candidates compiled by the President-elect’s transition team has been obtained by BuzzFeed News, covering 13 departments that will make up his powerful cabinet.

Ms Palin, the former Alaska governor who unsuccessfully ran as vice-president in 2008, is one of seven possibilities for Secretary of the Interior, including governors Jan Brewer and Mary Fallin, venture capitalist Robert Grady, oil executive Forrest Lucas and entrepreneur Harold Hamm.

Mr Christie, the New Jersey governor damaged by the “Bridgegate” scandal, is in contention for the positions of Attorney General and Secretary of Commerce; while Newt Gingrich could be made Secretary of State.

Mr Giuliani is also up for Attorney General while Dr Carson, who bowed out of the Republican nomination race earlier this year, is listed for the education and health briefs.

A hotly tipped option for Secretary of Defence is Mike Flynn, a retired general and former head of the Defence Intelligence Agency, who has been Mr Trump’s chief defence policy adviser during the campaign.

The list, which is not final, includes several high-profile figures from the energy and banking industries, following Mr Trump’s anti-“politician” rhetoric during his campaign. Among them are oil, gas and steel executives, a venture capitalist, bankers, investors and financiers from the private sector.

Several of the candidates were praised by Mr Trump in his victory speech on Wednesday, including possible Attorney General, Defence Secretary, or Office of Management or Budget director Jeff Sessions.

Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman listed as the sole candidate for Chief of Staff, was also named, with Mr Trump calling him “a very special person”.

“We have got tremendously talented people up here, I want to tell you, it’s been very, very special,” said the President-elect.

He was due to meet Barack Obama at the White House on Thursday to start the formal process of transition ahead of his inauguration in January.

Dr. Ben Carson as a possible for Secretary of Education?

Granted, the man is a brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon. He has accomplished much in his respective field, both academically and practically.

I have a hard time seeing him overseeing education for the simple fact that the man posited and believes that the pyramids in Egypt were built by Joseph from the Bible in order to serve as storage houses for grain.



It is not just his bizarre religious backing of his theory, but his belief in the idea that the Egyptians of that time, built this almost solid monolith of stone, with very little interior capacity for storage, seems to illustrate a very real flaw in his logic process.

Enabling him to make decisions and oversee the educational system in this country is rather strange. What other blind spots does he have when it comes to science, logic and common sense?

So now he's not going to jail Hillary either. You all got conned so hard. He isn't going to do even half of what he said. He's just as much establishment as any other candidate.

I bet he resigns before his term is up. He doesn't really want the job. It's way too much work and stressful.

General Flynn as Sec Def will be a good pick.

Sessions, Bolton, Corker, Gov Brewer and Sheriff Clarke all getting spots would be fine by me. Solid choices mixed with quite a few not solid that I hope are just there to say hey thanks for the support and we considered you but aren't choosing you.

David Clarke rides a horse to press conferences and believes marijuana is the plight of the blacks and leads to violence and all other forms of criminality... sure, claim that you have a black man on your cabinet when he is nothing more than the ultimate Uncle Tom.

FOACAD, I am not up to snuff on all of those people you listed, but I just looked them all up and would absolutely love for you to defend any of them in detail. I won't hold my breath.

The notion that you must act a certain way based on skin color is racist. I hope you can see that.

While I'm cautiously getting the feeling that a lot of the more extreme positions were posturing for votes... Some of the people on this list do worry me quite a bit.

Climate change is real, and while I think the solution lies in business and not government having the head of the EPA not believe in science is disturbing. The mistake by Clinton in West Virginia was telling the country she was going to put coal mines out of business without offering something to fill that vacuum and take care of the displaced workers there. The opposite and equally dangerous stance is to just roll back protections and allow dirty energy to reign.

Brownback doesn't deserve anything... he has successfully ran Kansas into the ground.

There is no business solution to climate change. The oil companies knew if it 30 years ago and buried it in the name of profits. There's a reason there are regulations on every industry, business will only do what's good for business.

Your broad stroke is very inaccurate and in no way applies to all businesses.
