The Trump Administration

First the obvious ones.

Christie for Attorney-General, bien entendu.

Steve Bannon as White House Press Secretary.

FBI Chief? Why not keep John Comey? He made only a small contribution to electing Trump, but it was a significant contribution; also he'd keep the pro-Trump anti-Hillary clique in the FBI active and effective. His flip-flops about Hillary's emails can safely be forgotten.

Over to you chaps for the more tricky ones.

First on the to-do list: Lock Her Up. Who would make a good Justice Secretary for this little chore?

I'm drooling with anticipation to see what he does with Obamacare. He is probably the only candidate, let alone office-holder, who would dare to take millions of Americans out of health insurance and sleep soundly in his bed that night. And then, I speculate, the effluent would encounter the air-conditioning.

Secretary of State? Would John Bolton stick it up Nato sufficiently?

Also, I wish to see how he's going to get Mexico to pay for the wall. Popcorn is envisaged. He might just as well offer it as payment for the wall, too.

Well some are pretty happy.

Two companies that operate detention facilities in the U.S. are breaking out.

Donald Trump's victory in the presidential elections helped shares of Corrections Corp. rise as much as 60 percent before paring their surge to 34 percent by 10:14 a.m. in New York, while GEO Group Inc. was trading 18 percent higher by the same time.

Great, they foresee a rise in incarceration. I thought the left were the ones going to send everyone to FEMA camps.

Well, certainly we have Secretary of Energy, Sarah Palin. And there's got to be a cabinet post for Michelle Bachmann -- maybe Health and Human Services. There she could better try to regulate abortion providers out of existence.

Hunger games here we come! I'm going to sign my daughter up for archery lessons.

From your mouth (well, fingers) to God's ™ ear.

Quote

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) said that God was responsible for Donald Trump's victory, and that the night should convince "believers" and pastors of "the power of prayer."

“Already we know that the glory goes to the God Almighty, the God of the
Universe, the Sovereign Lord. He is the one who did this for us,” Bachmann said on a live broadcast of "America Stands: Election Coverage in the Spirit of Faith" on Tuesday night, organized by Kenneth Copeland Ministries.

"We have a prayer room here. We had people all across the United States joining with our prayer room here in Dallas in prayer, and look what happened [...] it's phenomenal."

Bachmann used the now-infamous New York Times Upshot election tracker which, after 8:30 p.m., began a nosedive, creating an almost too-neat "X" in its data sets and flip-flopping election projections from roughly 80 percent Clinton to an eventual 95 percent Trump.

“This was the moment when the whole race broke, when prayer began, the church came out and then we see a 30-point swing here, a 30-point swing here, and now we see the swing to a 95 percent chance of winning Trump," Bachmann said, gesturing at the graphic.

"His people got on their knees and cried out to holy God and said we can't go down this road anymore. Father, we ask you for your mercy. And this is the proof positive of what the Lord did. The Lord did this."

People seem to really like a vengeful God a lot more than a kind loving God.

Have you been listening lately? Actually, some of them always have. "Sinners in the Hand if an Angry God" anyone?

From that:

“Rejecting a fact-based intelligence assessment — not because of compelling contrarian data, but because it is inconsistent with a preexisting worldview — that’s the stuff of ideological authoritarianism, not pragmatic democracy. And it is frightening,” Hayden wrote.

Things will be great with the C-list and a few B-listers in charge.

When they work for Trump, he defined them as the best.

Crap, I still feel like I've been beat down.

Maybe some A-listers will step forward, for the sake of the country.

But it's a heck of a position they're putting themselves in if they do.

Then there's the Operation Valkyrie option ...
