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.

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.

The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles Thursday night at a Syrian airfield in response to what it believes was the Syrian government´s use of banned chemical weapons blamed for having killed at least 100 people on Tuesday, U.S. military officials told NBC News. The U.S. military fired at least 50 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha´irat in Homs province in western Syria, the officials said.

Dan Rather, on Thursday, took to his Facebook page to warn against the “dangers of distraction” when it came to reporting on President Donald Trump. The disgraced former anchor of CBS Evening News began his rant by listing what he viewed were “unfounded allegations that clutter our news feed” like Susan Rice and the “wiretapping of the Trump team.” He then proceeded to drop a goofy “Ratherism” as he spewed: “The smoke machine is turned on.

Chelsea sat down with Levo, a female-oriented online leadership training and mentoring program that connects women in business with other, more famous women in business.

In 1992, Congresswoman Maxine Waters called President George H.W. Bush a “mean-spirited man who has no care or concern about what happens to the African-American community in this country." This was part of a National Press Club rant in which the fright wig from California also announced, “I believe George Bush is a racist.” (Snip) The left doesn’t apologize. It expresses no regrets. It just goes right on steamrolling its way forward. And if Republicans want to get anything done, they will have to fight the left just as hard as it fights them. The big question is can Republicans fight? Or

Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday that Ohio Gov.

Schwarzenegger made the endorsement in an interview with the Los Angeles Times: “He should run in 2020, yes,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview with The Times when asked whether Kasich, whom he supported over Trump in the 2016 presidential race, should launch another presidential campaign. “Kasich is an extraordinary guy.

Was Russia election

In an election decided by just 80,000 votes in three states, it is hard to dismiss the possibility that Russian intervention could, in fact, have tilted the outcome of the 2016 election. That would make this the most consequential computer hack in history, but was it an act of war? Certainly not in the classic sense. The Kremlin did not, after all, transgress America’s borders or the borders of an ally the United States is pledged to protect. It did not shoot down an American aircraft or sink an American ship. Those are the classic kinds of casus belli that

Secret meetings appear to be one of the stories du jour about President Donald Trump‘s administration this week. First, on Tuesday, BuzzFeed News reported that Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, met with various American Muslim leaders in secret before Trump’s inauguration. Early Thursday morning, Politico reported another such meeting, this time between Trump’s daughter and Kushner’s wife, Ivanka Trump, and Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood. Dawn Laguens, Planned Parenthood’s executive vice president, confirmed what she termed “an explainer meeting” on the record for Politico. “The purpose of the meeting, from Cecile’s point of view, was to make sure that

New technologies are shaping behaviors and dissolving civilities.

Rep. Devin Nunes, the head of the House Intelligence Committee, announced Thursday morning that he will step aside from the committee´s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Nunes blamed the move on "leftwing activist groups" that filed complaints with the Office of Congressional Ethics and maintained that accusations of bias are "entirely false and politically motivated," but said he chose to temporarily step away. "Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics," Nunes said in the statement.

The U.S. government’s foreign surveillance sweeps up American lawmakers and their staffers so routinely now that Congress is alerted as often as once a month that its employees involved in intercepted conversations have been unmasked and their identities shared with intelligence or law enforcement agencies, Circa has learned. The so-called Gates notifications -- named for former CIA Director Robert Gates -- go to the Gang of Eight leadership team in Congress. (Snip) Often though, the affected lawmakers or congressional aides aren’t told about the unmasking, unless it involves a security or hacking threat. So some affected lawmakers may not know

A Nebraska Republican congressman who made a point of not campaigning with Donald Trump last year claimed in an interview this week that former Vice President Joe Biden could have beaten the president easily in a head-to-head election. Ben Sasse, a tea party darling, told The New York Times the only reason Trump prevailed in November was the weakness of his main adversary, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The Times asked Sasse to evaluate partisan sniping and the resulting divisions in Congress. Are voters throwing up their hands and declaring a pox on everyone´s houses?

President Donald Trump is different. Unlike any of his forty-four predecessors, he does not even pretend to care about constitutional rules or official protocols. He has no need for facts or norms. And in his drive to “Make America Great Again,” he discards not just the balance of power within our government, but also the deeper balance between our two major myths about what made America great in the first place. In the end, that might be a good thing. The first of those stories tells us that America’s greatness comes from its pioneer spirit, and that making society nicer

On Tuesday, Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice admitted that she used the intelligence community to spy on members of the Trump team, but this type of behavior isn’t anything new. In fact, it appears the Obama White House had been spying on its political opponents and leaking classified information about them long before Donald Trump won the presidential election last November, Lee Smith of Tablet Magazine writes. Remember the Iran Deal negotiations? In December 2015, The Wall Street Journal revealed that the Obama administration used the NSA to cast a wide net of surveillance around not just Israeli officials
