Two White House Staff Appointments Announced by Trump Transition….

*Note* It appears the Trump Transition Website has be having technical issues.

Breitbart is announcing the addition of Don McGahn as Chief White House Counsel, which follows a natural flow from McGahn’s prior role as campaign counsel:

don-mcgahn(Via Breitbart) President-elect Donald Trump has selected former FEC chairman Don McGahn to serve in his administration as White House counsel and an assistant to the president.

“Don has a brilliant legal mind, excellent character and a deep understanding of constitutional law,” Trump said in a statement. “He will play a critical role in our administration, and I am grateful that he is willing to serve our country at such a high-level capacity.” (read more)

Background on McGahn during his FEC tenure here.

Breitbart is also announcing that KT McFarland will be joining the White House National Security team:

kt-mcfarland

(Via Breitbart) […] “I am proud that KT has once again decided to serve our country and join my national security team,” said President-elect Trump. “She has tremendous experience and innate talent that will complement the fantastic team we are assembling, which is crucial because nothing is more important than keeping our people safe.”

“The American people chose Donald J. Trump to lead them for a reason,” said Ms. McFarland. “He has the courage, brilliance and energy to Make America Great Again, and nobody has called foreign policy right more than President-elect Trump, and he gets no credit for it. I’m honored and humbled that he has asked me to be part of his team.” (read more)

    [yawn] Winning is getting tiresome.

    Just kidding. But I sure hope that this doesn’t cause me serious intestinal problems when I deal with some of the stupid things our WA state GOP tolerates/does. As an example, we nominated a guy who could have won (even the Democrats don’t like our Democrat guv) except he spouted off that he wasn’t voting for Trump AND he was going to vote for Johnson. The grassroots barfed on his campaign by not voting for governor at all.

    More reasons for thanks:
    President-Elect Donald Trump is choosing people to work WITH HIM on the basis of:
    Patriotism.
    Track Record he can count on.
    MERIT.
    What a nice change from the business as usual picking of people who are big donors, cronies, and those who put America LAST.
    What fun it will be to see how/if Sen. Schumer, let alone Sen. McConnell, try to block Mr. Trump’s people.

      Ukraine he said, as I recall, we should have no problems with Russia if it does not invade, which it won’t. But that also implies he has no problem with Russia doing what it’s doing.

It seems to me for America First, she would have to… if she is, she could be invaluable to the restoration of freedom and liberty for us while ending the nightmare of nation invading and “building”.

        I’m pretty sure some of us are aware of kissinger and rockefeller’s “contributions” to the destruction of America, aren’t we? Here’s a clip of kissinger describing obama’s “task” of shaping foreign policy around creating a new world order… one doesn’t need a “tin foil hat” to understand what he means. He’s a globalist.

                  We have to be very vigilant about the globalists. It’s very hard to find foreign policy people with not just experience, but gravitas and clear thinking, who are NOT tainted in some way by the globalists. Because of that, we are going to have to accept people with ties, contacts and history that raise concerns. But as long as we’re careful, I think we’ll be OK.

                  I always say, we’re not against internationalism – nations and their interrelationships are what we’re all about. It’s a very old-school idea, much like God. What we’re against is GLOBALISM – a whole different animal.

                  Very much agreed about CFR. Some kind of nasty trouble comes out of there. I used to scoff at the warnings about them, years ago, but no longer.

                  I think we should all remember that some good people will have worked in organizations we consider to be bad because there was no other place they fit better.

                  We’re creating a new political movement. The leaders that Trump will choose will necessarily have been involved in organizations like CFR or companies like Goldman Sachs because they were the best and brightest and they had to work somewhere. Some of them will have dutifully done their jobs while perhaps privately thinking things could be done a different way.

                  The key is to see how they will behave now that they are given the chance to operate in an organization with different principles. I have faith that Trump will pick the best, and in the (hopefully rare) cases where the picks do not align with his organizational goals, they will be quickly fired.

                We have to be ready for the MEDIA to try and reassert itself as the only voice to judge of our elected officials. To do so, it will first try to silence us. They will try to do it with RIGHT-WING POLITICAL CORRECTNESS – such as “don’t question McCain because he is a veteran and a hero”. In our case, “don’t question Trump”. I do implicitly trust Trump, but he NEEDS our honest feedback.

                We must never fall for anything that requires us to shut up. I understand that we operate in a dangerous space, with concern trolls on the left and morale martinets on the right. Twixt those two dangers we must sail, speaking our minds fully, to support Trump and make America great again!

              In order for President Trump to be successful, we as a group need to understand this is a full participation presidency.

              Ever notice that Trump has excellent hearing? I think he’s listening to us and expecting that we are vigilant…in other words…doing our duty as citizens.

              On the other hand, we have the other side…the heavy trolling going on. Left unchecked, they can be effective in destroying morale and causing internal stress among Trump supporters. Some of the trolls are much better than the others…so I understand the “concern” there, as well. I have complained about the “concern” trolls as well.

              It can get tricky to recognize TRUE concern and honesty. Unfortunately, there are some pretty deceitful characters out there that are very good at what they do. That’s why we have to watch out for complacency…we won the elections…it’s the holidays…we can relax.

              BAM! The Snake has bitten you!

        It also neglects to list the plea strategy during the primary to vote for Kasich, not Cruz in states Kasich can beat Trump and vote for Cruz, not Kasich in states that Cruz can most likely beat trump. Even Hillary Clinton did not suggest that strategy to undermine democracy in that over-the-top tirade against democracy. Yes, even Hillary Clinton had better morals than the aforementioned person you are concerned about.

      I was reminded of Levin when we recently watched one of the ‘Harry Potter’ movies, the one with the ‘wizard tournament’.

      One of the tournament challenges was to figure out an audio clue contained in a ‘golden egg’. Every time Harry opened the egg, an ear-piercing, unintelligible screech emanated from within. He’d quickly slam the egg shut as everybody nearby covered their ears in pain.

      As the story unfolds, Harry learns that the only way to listen to the clue is to listen under water.

      So is it with Levin.

        I will listen to his show for analysis this evening, as Dan Bongino is guest hosting. (He should have some fair insights.) The problem with Levin, however, goes far beyond his whining, bitching, and histrionics. He has become insufferable – and possibly unforgivable, for the damage he has done.

        While Levin came around somewhat during the general, it’s like listening to somebody with full-blown multiple personality disorder. It’s hard telling who he will be from one day to the next. I don’t buy his “principled” conservatism excuse, either – the man has a screw loose.

        I’ll never forget his very personal on-air attack leveled toward TCTH. Not only was it unfair to Sundance, but it was insulting to all of us who follow this site. Levin is truly a low, nasty little man.

    K.T. Mc Farland seems to be big hit between all I’ve heard, read and my ‘good’ feel for her. But McGahn gives me more red flag than good. Why isn’t he considered another Rhino considering his previous job history , etc? Why would he be good if he was instrumental in “loosening regulations on FEC? I was hoping FEC would be revamped. Does his past be instrumental in knowing all about black hats?

    I am not a FEC guru, got involved because Sundance asked in April for some crowdsourcing help, but they seemed mainly as an agency that made sure proper paperwork was filled out. They monitor guidelines of what type of pacs, did pacs fill out filings properly, where limitations of $$ per individual / foreign abided by. Not so much if the dollars were going through legit businesses.

    Do you remember when the gentleman (set up pac ) that used Trump’s name to gain donations , promising a dinner or something, and official response was “well that would fall under consumer affairs” if someone felt defrauded ? Why would just anyone be able to set up a PAC through a gov’t agency without “standing” to do so ? Saw many other non common sense stuff. Maybe there should be a higher fee paid to begin a process. I don’t know if I ever saw McMullin start out with seed money.

    I may be more sensitive to this category, but probably not alone about getting a handle on $$$ as it pertains to our politicians. Should not have to cost a billion dollars to run for President or we are going to keep eliminating some great potential choices.

    Hopefully by 2020 we will have some improvements. No more 18 month campaigns, hold in more down to 6. Maybe combos of podcasts and uniform policy website for all . We will see. America does have a MO for groundbreaking ideas.

    I would like to hear more from all about McGahn though. Thanks.

    KT McFarland is a CFR member who worked for globalist Henry Kissinger. Why do people like her so much?

      I am old enough to recall the Kissinger younger days. He was considered to be a very intelligent and able Secretary of State…but of course it was what…1973?

      (KC McFarland was 22 years old in 1973.)

      “Kissinger played a prominent role in United States foreign policy between 1969 and 1977. During this period, he pioneered the policy of détente with the Soviet Union, orchestrated the opening of relations with the People’s Republic of China, and negotiated the Paris Peace Accords, ending American involvement in the Vietnam.” Source: Wikipedia article on Kissinger. (Which goes on to discuss his negative points too.)
      Kissinger, whatever his ultimate motives, did do some good things for the USA when he was SOS.

      Even knowing what I know now, if the only choices for SOS were Kerry or Kissinger, I’d take Kissinger…at least he has a brain.

      The people’s sole resource for information in the 70’s early 80’s was…you guessed it…the MSM. The internet was not yet in existence for the general public. There was no source for all this “inside information” you have become used to having today.

      “Limited private connections to parts of the Internet by officially commercial entities emerged in several American cities by late 1989 and 1990..” Wikipedia: “history of the internet” search term. Note it emerged in a few cities by then: the internet was not widespread. It was not in everybody’s house.

      “the history of the personal computer as a mass-market consumer electronic device began in 1981 with the launch of the IBM Personal Computer that coined both the term Personal Computer and PC.” Wikipedia, search “history of personal computers”
      Note it began in 1981. Meaning even by the mid 80’s not everyone had pc’s. The internet was certainly NOT “worldwide” it wasn’t even yet “US-nationwide.”

      There wasn’t the general publlic awareness then of a “globalist” problem, why would there be? How could there be?

      So when KC was working under Kissinger, she was not some kind of “traitor to the US and to your cause.” She was a young person working for the USA.

      Donald Trump was around as an adult back then too. So he can understand that.

      To claim that KC McFarland is suspect because she served under Henry Kissinger way back when is a lot of “hind-sight” hooey.

      You have to understand the history. How information was disseminated. What the people knew and when and how.

    My two cents here. Just as a business guy puts together his deal team, PET is assembling his foreign policy and national security team, the operative word being “team.” This will be an assemblage of members with various talents, skill sets, and even personalities suitable to the tasks they will be responsible for.

    On your deal team you don’t expect your anti-trust guy to know all the potential tax landmines that your tax guy knows, you don’t expect either of them to have the fire-breathing personality of your lead negotiator, and you don’t expect any of them to know what your tech guru knows. Same here. And if any of them have contrary opinions or prejudices on stuff that falls outside their areas of responsibility, well, so what?

    For some comfort, consult verses 12 through 26 of Chapter 12 of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. This isn’t new.

    Guys check Dana Rohrabacher.
    I am told he is being considered as SoS.
    I feel he is truly the perfect man for the job, under every aspect.
    Light years better than Bolton, Romney, Giuliani etc.
    (Of course.)

      My initial reply appears to have vamoosed, so here’s #2.

      Interventionist? Dang, I voted for Trump b/c he said he was isolationist! I sure don’t like Miss Dana’s cutesy statement that the US should have done MORE to arm islmic terrorist KLA (drug and human traffickers that they are) in the Kosovo conflict. I guess it wasn’t good enough that we used DU bombs on Christians in order to advance Islam during the Kosovo action?

      I have been a close student of foreign affairs for 30+ years. This guy, if he is correctly quoted, appears to be another ideologue and walking military intervention disaster like we have come to expect from State. And to think I actually wanted to work at State under Reagan when I was a newly-minted I-Rel grad. The Lord is Good all the time.

  40. Didn’t see any mention here (or most anywhere) about Wilbur Ross as Secretary of Commerce.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilbur_Ross
    He’s been around Trump for quite some time, serious business transactions going way back to Atlantic City casinos. But this is a huge long ball hit for the Trump Administration.
    Ross is a turn-around, take-em-out-of bankruptcy specialist.
    That’s kind of where we are right now in the U.S.
    Usually these kind of guys don’t want the publicity, any kind of publicity.

    Past string of Secy of Commerce are either political hacks, or like Bush 43’s Gutierrez, affirmative action hires.

    Now I’d just like to see Carl Icahn get photographed in the Oval Office.
    Winnning? That would be out of the park clear the bases winning.
