  • Obama Didn't Even Pick His Cabinet, CITIBANK DID

    11/18/2016 4:08:49 AM PST · by gaggs · 28 replies
    While Donald Trump decides who will be in his cabinet, here is a reminder to the Mainstream media… Obama didn’t even pick his cabinet, Citibank did. In a John Podesta email revealed by Wikileaks, one month before the Presidential election of 2008, the Wall Street giant Citibank submitted to the Obama campaign a list of its preferred candidates for cabinet positions in an Obama administration. This list corresponds almost exactly to the eventual composition of Barack Obama’s cabinet.
  • Anna Chapman: Was Russian Spy Trying To Seduce An Obama Cabinet Member?

    International Business Times ^ | April 3, 2012 | Daniel Tovrov:
    A female Russian spy -- possibly flame-haired media darling Anna Chapman -- was close to seducing a member of U.S. President Barack Obama's cabinet in 2010, the assistant director of the FBI for counterintelligence revealed in a recent interview with British television. Frank Figliuzzi said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been tracking a 10-person Russian spy ring for years but had to act sooner than planned because the female agent was getting close to drawing a U.S. official into a "honey trap." The individual "got closer and closer to higher and higher ranking leadership. She got close enough to...

    Hello Christian ^ | 08/15/17 | Isabella Cox
    The Trump Administration is making Christian history! For the first time in over 100 years, weekly Bible studies are meeting at the White House, and the leader of these meetings says that the Trump cabinet members who attend the study are the best he's ever had. Ralph Dollinger, of Capitol Ministries, is the leader of the Bible study that is making headlines. The former NBA player founded his ministry with the hopes of guiding policy-makers on how to let their faith dictate their leadership. "These are godly individuals that God has risen to a position of prominence in our culture,"...

    (Full title not posted because contains profanity) “If he can get treated that way, what about the rest of us?” one of the President’s Cabinet secretaries asked me with both shock and anger in his voice. I am told reports about Rex Tillerson (not who I talked to) are legitimate. He is quite perturbed with the President’s treatment of his Attorney General and is ready to quit. Secretary Mattis (also not who I talked to) is also bothered by it. They and other Cabinet members are already frustrated by the slow pace of appointments for their staffs, the vetoes over...

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 26, 2017 | Josh Siegel
    President Trump has submitted to the Senate the nomination of Christopher Wray for FBI director, the White House announced Monday night. If confirmed for a 10-year term, Wray would replace James Comey, who Trump fired in May. (snip) Wray, 50, a white-collar criminal defense attorney, previously led the Justice Department's Criminal Division during two years — 2003 to 2005 — of President George W. Bush's administration. In private practice, Wray's most recent work, he represented New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the "Bridgegate" scandal, in which two of Christie's aides were given prison sentences after closing down the George Washington...

    Illinois Review ^ | June 14, 2017 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    President Donald J. Trump was born on June 14, 1946, a day also celebrated as the birthday of the Continental Army (1775) and the United States Flag (1777). It’s a good day to be a patriot. At this writing, as he celebrates his 71st birthday, Donald Trump has been in office for less than five months. If the 100-day mark in a presidency is too early to judge a presidency, then so is this, so we mustn’t try. There is still room for almost all possible outcomes at the end of his four years (or eight). It is, however, a...

    It smelled like North Korea. Yesterday, at the “cabinet meeting,” as some of the most powerful people on earth went around the table competing to see who could kiss their boss’s ass the most lavishly. It smelled like those propaganda videos that come out of North Korea, where insane smiles and frenetic clapping break out every time the nut job with the hairdo has a bowel movement. By the time the meeting at the White House got to the chief of staff talking about being “blessed,” it had taken on the air of worship. It was a gimme to the...
  • Catholic Publisher: Steve Bannon Possesses Both the Fighting Spirit and Moral Framework Trump Needs

    Breitbart ^ | May 4, 2017 | Breitbart News
    In a USA Today op-ed, Catholic publisher Deal W. Hudson describes President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon as a man who possesses a “deep Christian moral compass behind his capitalism.” Trump understood the Tea Party and Christian base of his support early on in campaign, and the hiring of Bannon insured he would not forget it. Those who claim Bannon represents only nationalism and populism miss the mark badly. Bannon is a sophisticated thinker, experienced journalist and successful entrepreneur, whose mind has been shaped by his Catholic faith, and whose political instincts have been formed outside the Beltway.

    3:07 P.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. I’m proud to welcome everyone to our first official Cabinet meeting. I want to begin by updating the public on the severe weather situation. I’ve been receiving the latest information on the blizzard forecast, and I think we're in very good shape. We're prepared -- everybody in government is fully prepared and ready. And the entire Northeast, it seems, is under a very severe winter storm warning. So let’s hope it’s not going to be as bad as some people are predicting. Usually it isn’t. Chancellor Merkel and I have just spoken, and...

    President Trump’s newly installed agency heads are starting to take a lead role unraveling a web of Obama-era regulations, acting alongside congressional Republicans and the president himself to roll back rules they claim hurt business or simply go too far. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke was the latest to peel back red tape. On his first day of work, for which he arrived Teddy Roosevelt-style on horseback, Zinke ended a ban on lead bullets and fishing tackle on federal lands and water. The ban was imposed to protect animals from lead poisoning, but had been criticized by the National Rifle Association...

    Ben Carson is now officially confirmed as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, following the Senate vote Thursday morning. The approval locks in one of the few remaining cabinet members left to be approved. The Senate floor voted the day before on the motion to invoke cloture on the nomination of Carson, passing the vote 62-37. The significant majority vote gave Carson a likely green light to be confirmed on Thursday. Despite a controversial start to his nomination, it turned out to be all bark and no bite as his hearing went fairly smooth. The former neurosurgeon...
  • Wilbur Ross confirmed as Commerce secretary

    02/27/2017 5:02:48 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 35 replies
    The Senate voted Monday to confirm billionaire investor Wilbur Ross as secretary of commerce in President Trump's Cabinet. Ross was approved by a vote of 72-27, with 20 Democrats and Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, joining 51 Republicans to vote "aye." Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., did not vote due to his ongoing recovery from back surgery. The Senate later voted 67-31 to move forward on the nomination of Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Mont., to lead the Interior Department. A final vote on Zinke's confirmation could occur on Tuesday or Wednesday. Ross is the 14th member of Trump's Cabinet to be cofirmed, with...

    It took nearly a month, but President Donald Trump is finally operating with at least half of his Cabinet in place. Not since George Washington in 1789 has a newly elected president waited so long. [Snip] Why? Unprecedented delays and obstructionism on the part of Democrats have resulted in the most contentious confirmation process in U.S. history, according to a Washington Post analysis. No other president’s nominees have collectively faced similar opposition. And that’s just the 15 members of Trump’s Cabinet. Other top nominees, such as Rep. Mick Mulvaney to lead the Office of Management and Budget and Scott Pruitt...

    © Getty Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is teeing up votes on six additional Trump nominees as Republicans try to end a Democratic slow walk of the president's picks. McConnell filed cloture on Monday night for Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) to lead the Office of Management and Budget, Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, Wilbur Ross to head the Commerce Department, Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Mont.) to be the Interior secretary, Ben Carson to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry to be Energy secretary.

    WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said that even though Democrats don't have the votes to stop President Trump's cabinet nominees, their strategy is working by being able to highlight how bad they are. "When you get millions of calls and demonstrations and a nominee is exposed for being who they are, it's going to have a profound and positive effect, even if she gains office," Schumer said on Capitol Hill today after the confirmation of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on a tiebreaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence. "So we're very happy with the results and...

    WASHINGTON ― The possibility of someone lying to Congress used to be frowned upon by Republicans. How can anyone forget the chairmen of two committees referring perjury charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the FBI over her clashing email explanations? But that was before Donald Trump won the presidency, and before the alt-fact era. Now two of Trump’s nominees who arguably lied to Congress are not facing perjury referrals but are on the verge of being confirmed to lead the nation’s departments of the Treasury and Health and Human Services. To recap: Treasury nominee Steven Mnuchin told...

    Washington (CNN)Donald Trump is eager for Jeff Sessions to become his attorney general, but not a moment too late. Trump is pushing his final Cabinet nominees through the Senate, including Sessions, but Republicans are staggering the confirmation votes to keep the Alabama senator in his seat for as long as they need him. And for now, Republicans need his vote. After sitting out the confirmation process for his fellow Trump nominees, Sessions emerged Thursday to cast a key committee vote on behalf of Mick Mulvaney, the President's pick to run the Office of Management and Budget. The Senate Budget Committee...
