    Former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will serve as the 78th Treasury Secretary of the U.S., the Wall Street Journal reported Monday afternoon, citing people familiar with President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team. Yellen, 74, will have her work cut out for her, with the U.S. economy in the midst of the deepest economic crisis since the Great Depression. But Yellen’s deep experience with macroeconomics, in addition to her familiarity with the inner workings of Washington, could prove to be useful tools as the Biden administration takes a swing at a fiscal response to the crisis. If confirmed, Yellen will be...

Grisham, who replaced Sarah Huckabee Sanders last June, will return to the East Wing as First Lady Melania Trump’s chief of staff, without having ever held a press briefing, the White House announced Tuesday. “I am excited to welcome Stephanie back to the team in this new role,” a statement from the first lady read, “She has been a mainstay and true leader in the Administration from even before day one, and I know she will...

    resident Donald Trump’s campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany will serve as the new White House press secretary, replacing Stephanie Grisham who was out of the post on Tuesday. Grisham is returning to serve on First Lady Melania Trump’s staff. The New York Times reported Tuesday that, “Kayleigh McEnany, a campaign spokeswoman will replace her — the latest shake-up in a communications office that has been seen almost constant turnover under President Trump.” “Ms. McEnany has been a vocal defender of Mr. Trump on television, the main role the president has long believed the press secretary should play, according to current and...

On Monday, McAleenan was invited to give remarks and then participate in a discussion session at an annual immigration policy meeting hosted by Georgetown Law. However, protesters kept standing up, holding banners and shouting to prevent the acting secretary from being heard by other attendees.

    When you say exclusive, don’t you think that the story would be coming from the source itself? CBS running a headline calling it exclusive about Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the best press secretary that ever was is quitting. Should I sue for trauma about the thought of finally seeing someone who fits perfect in a position and can handle it without intimidation from the agents of satan? Well, there has to be a law against being able to publicize a lie and using the word exclusive is misleading to myself the viewer. THE CBS STORY: CBS News Published on Jun 13,...

    So here’s where we are now. On Friday President Trump abruptly fired his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, forcing him to cut short a trip to Africa. https://twitter.com/jaketapper/status/973550099585478657/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fhurryupharry.org%2F2018%2F03%2F13%2Ftrump-fires-tillerson%2F https://twitter.com/AP/status/973592726787756032?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fhurryupharry.org%2F2018%2F03%2F13%2Ftrump-fires-tillerson%2F Although Tillerson and Trump publicly disagreed on many things, I found this particularly interesting: On the flight from Nigeria, Tillerson appeared to break with the White House in his assessment of the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He singled out Russia as responsible for the attack, echoing the finger-pointing of the British government. “It came from Russia,” Tillerson said, according to the Associated Press. “I cannot understand why...

    In the first big hit to the Bay Area from the Trump administration, newly minted Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has put the brakes on $647 million for Caltrain to go electric — and in the process pretty much killed for high-speed rail coming to San Francisco anytime soon. “It puts the (electrification) project in serious jeopardy,” Caltrain spokesman Seamus Murphy said Friday. Caltrain carries about 60,000 riders a day between the South Bay and San Francisco, but its diesel-driven trains are both costly to operate and slow. Officials see electrification as a way both to increase ridership and save money...
  • Wilbur Ross confirmed as Commerce secretary

    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...

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that he wants to see "very significant" tax reform passed before Congress' August recess, in what could prove a tough task as lawmakers work through a complex agenda. "We want to get this done by the August recess. We've been working closely with the leadership in the House and the Senate and we're looking at a combined plan," he told CNBC in his first television interview since assuming office. President Donald Trump has repeatedly made pledges for tax reform and regulatory cuts since he took office, creating optimism among business executives and investors. So...
  • "One Nation Under God." President Trump Chooses Sonny Perdue for Secretary Of Agriculture

    I have to say it does my heart good to see a government official turn to God, praying for rain in a drought situation. Governor Sonny Perdue held a prayer service for rain on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia on November 13, 2007. Today President Trump has chosen Perdue as Secretary of Agriculture, but some are criticizing Perdue for his prayer service in 2007. Hard to believe someone could be mocked for that, isn’t it? I wish we had more in government who would turn toward God than away from Him. We need God to...

    I ran into some conversation about Kimberly Guilfoyle from Fox News as a possible candidate for press secretary. She seems competent, but could she manage? I am not that familiar with her. Whoever takes the position needs to be a tough but flexible and the argument ran that Ingraham is too soft for the job, Monica Crowley is to rigid, but that Guilfoyle is intelligent, hard nosed but able to flex. Your thoughts?

    Pennsylvania Republicans are livid with the secretary of state´s office for releasing not only the names of the state´s electors, but also their home addresses and phone numbers. The GOP is calling the move "unprecedented." Going by recent history, it certainly is. Previously, the secretary of state´s office would release the names and home counties of electors. Now all of a sudden, Democratic Secretary of State Pedro A. Cortés discovered a way to release the personal contact information of electors, despite the fact the state had never done so previously. Cortés´s office claims they were just following the law on

    Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is emerging as President-elect Donald Trump's leading contender for interior secretary, three people close to Trump's transition team told POLITICO. An advocate of oil and gas development, Fallin signed a bill last year that would prevent Oklahoma cites from enacting bans on drilling. Fallin is a staunch critic of the Obama administration's climate change regulations for power plants. She signed an executive order last year saying that her state will not comply with the rules.
