Revealed: Hillary Clinton’s Cabinet
Picks (If She’d Won, That Is)

Heat Street, by Andrew Stiles

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

Comments:
Looking over that list sure does make you breathe a sigh of relief. Can you imagine if Podesta was Secretary of State? He would have been under the direct control of his BFF (like all of them) George Soros.

Podesta, isn´t that rich. What was that pick about, to see who can have the least secure guardianship of our most classified secrets? Was this supposed to show Hillary has a sense of humor? Leave it at Zanies.

So she was guilty of one of the worst things a Republican can do in the eyes of the lying left and that is to start picking their cabinet before the election.

140 Somali refugees settled in

Associated Press, by Tom Odula    Original Article

Fellow refugees say at least 140 Somalis have been settled in the United States after being blocked for days by President Donald Trump´s ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries. The refugees spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns about their safety. They remain at the world´s largest refugee camp, Dadaab, which hosts more than 200,000 Somalis. The group of 140 which had been vetted by U.S. authorities had been on the brink of traveling to the United States, but Trump´s ban left them in limbo at a transit camp in Kenya´s capital, Nairobi.

California Democrats made a surprise move late Friday to foil President Trump’s promise to repeal ObamaCare—by introducing a stand-alone, single-payer healthcare system in California. The Mercury News reported that two California lawmakers Friday introduced legislation to replace private insurance with a government-run health care system covering all 38 million Californians—including its undocumented residents. “We’ve reached this pivotal moment,” Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), told the Mercury News in an interview Friday, “and I thought to myself: `Look, now more than ever is the time to talk about universal health care.’” The article went on to report that the proposal dubbed the ‘Healthy California

In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote.

Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, the firebrand Islamist cleric behind the first attempt to bring down the World Trade Center, has died in federal prison. He was 78. Abdel-Rahman, an Egyptian radical who maintained a global following even while imprisoned for more than two decades, died Saturday at Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina, where he was serving a life sentence, Reuters reported. Abdel-Rahman was convicted in 1995 of plotting terror attacks throughout New York City, including the World Trade Center and the United Nations. His son Ammar told Reuters that his family had received a phone call from a U.S. representative

Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion. The former president´s tenure earned its lowest marks for the relationship between the presidency and Congress,

This weekend in Atlanta, theatergoers can see not only Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues but also The MANologues, a new performance about “toxic masculinity.” “The MANologues will explore themes such as masculinity, white male privilege, everyday sexism, war, patriarchy, socialization to gender and race, intersectionality, bystander intervention, allyship, PTSD, porn addiction, mansplaining, police brutality, and more,” according to Atlanta’s Creative Loafing. HuMAN UP, an “intersectional feminist” organization focused on gender-based violence and men, is producing the performance along with the Atlanta chapter of One Billion Rising, which was founded by the Vagina Monologues author. Once hailed as a feminist masterpiece, the

A Yale student group has waged a war on the university fraternities and will use Title IX to force them into admitting women—while letting female-only sororities off the hook. Engender, a group led by students of Yale, claims it will lobby the university—citing Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on gender, and internal Yale policies against discrimination—to issue sanctions against male-only fraternities. Will McGrew, a co-director of the organization, told Yale News that it’s a “logical next step” to approach the Yale administration “because all of these organizations fall under the purview of Yale legally, either because they are registered

Activists in Arizona are rattled over a new bill brought before the state Senate that would dish out harsher sentences for undocumented immigrants compared to U.S. citizens, according to AZfamily.com. The bill under consideration, SB1279, will also make it impossible for undocumented felons to be released early on parole. The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona stressed in an email Monday that individuals should voice concerns to their state senators, who are not expected to vote on the new measure until next week. In the meantime, the ACLU is devoting its time to convince politicians to turn down the proposal.

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard. During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump´s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn´t mention Trump´s name once, but he didn´t have to. And even considering the two men´s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party. In his speech, McCain suggested

Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tore into President Trump Friday by arguing that his nascent administration has no accomplishments compared to his predecessor. Pelosi noted Friday on the same day in 2009, former President Barack Obama had already signed into law his $800 billion economic stimulus bill.

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. He’s unreachable.“He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, with its notably short handle, we must keep trying to figure out his strange, perverse, aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.It’s a very cluttered place to be, a fine-tuned machine spewing a torrent of chaos, cruelty, confusion, farce and transfixing craziness. Of course, this is merely the observation of
