Trump Cabinet Stocked With Conservatives for Thanksgiving

by Jerry Markon, Robert Costa and Emma Brown | The Washington Post  |  published on November 24, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday selected two prominent Republican women for Cabinet-level positions, adding diversity to an inner circle that was already coming under fire for being composed mostly of white men.

In a potentially controversial choice, Trump intends to nominate billionaire philanthropist Betsy DeVos for education secretary, turning to a conservative activist who has forcefully pushed for private school voucher programs. Her nomination is expected to face strong opposition from public school advocates, who oppose her efforts to funnel taxpayer dollars from public to private and religious schools.

“Betsy DeVos is a brilliant and passionate education advocate,” Trump said in a statement. “Under her leadership we will reform the U.S. education system and break the bureaucracy that is holding our children back so that we can deliver world-class education and school choice to all families.”

Hours earlier, Trump had announced that he will fill the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations slot with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, a rising Republican star and daughter of Indian immigrants who has virtually no foreign policy experience.

    #MakeTrumpGreat Again!

    Trump must uphold ALL his pre-election promises!
    Must we patriots march and protest LOUDLY in the streets now?

    Trump has not even taken office yet and in his own words, he has backed off 80% of what his supporters wanted, and 50% of what he promised.

    Trump said he will leave 10 million of the 12 million illegal aliens here, not convicted of crimes, to compete for American jobs……………that supports globalism.

    Trump said he will NOT deport tens of thousands of muslim RAPEfugees here now………….that supports globalism and domestic terror attacks.

    Trump said he will NOT end the H-1b visa programs or deport the tens of thousands of Hindu’s here now taking American jobs……………..that supports globalism.

    Trump said he will deport ONLY 2 million “criminal ilegal aliens” and leave all the rest (listed above) here, with us inside a wall he said he will build.

    But I suppose 20% of something under Trump is better that 100% of nothing under Clinton.

    …………….Still tearing up yet with Trump Pride?

    ………………………..Excuse me, if I am underwhelmed!

  • DrBillLemoine

    In fairness, Mrs. DeVos wants to siphon more public tax money for education into private business hands; those children left behind in her voucher program face shortchanging with less funds. Charter schools are proven no better than comparable public schools and are often highly selective so they should do better. The real answer is in the community schools type participation of parents and community in schools. The local school public should select goals for their own children, hire teachers and administrators to implement curriculum that matches, and periodically measure results for guidance and improvement, not teacher pay or discipline. It’s worked in my city schools and the State of New Jersey. When people are involved in public schools, students perform better and parents support them.

    • wordwaryor

      Current public schools not working. Anerica was built when kids went to school in the church building and one textbook was the bible. So local control of education should be better than the one size fits all Common Core Wash DC interference and social indoctrination that Leftists are pushing.

      • DrBillLemoine

        It’s up to each individual state to adopt or reject any curriculum, define teacher qualifications and fund schools. Any problems you find should be referred to local and state school boards. What makes a nation is often its common experience, namely public schools. You yearn for a bygone world. This is the new millennium in a faster, smaller, more connected globe. Get up to speed or be left behind. Nobody wants to go backwards to more primitive schools–or anything else.

    • NM Leon

      Charter schools allow parents the choice to keep their kids from the pernicious influence of worthless teachers such as yourself.

      • DrBillLemoine

        Public charter schools can be valuable, where ordinary school boards neglect to provide options for all students. Student selection, state regulations and use of public funds are all important. Sorry you found ‘worthless’ teachers in your schooling; speak to your school board about it for your kids.

        • NM Leon

          My nephew (who I raised) had a Science teacher who was teaching that fish were amphibians (among other fallacies). You bet I raised hell over it with the president of the school board, a personal friend of mine. The board decided they couldn’t fire her because it would cost probably more than $100,000 and 3 to 5 years to fight the NEA. In a charter school she would likely have been summarily fired.

          In the ’90s we (NM) passed a law that all teachers had to be able to pass the tests at the grade level they taught. A 6th grade teacher had to be able to pass 6th grade tests etc. 25% of teachers failed three attempts. At least we got rid of the 25% that were clearly incompetent, right? No…100% of the failures were grandfathered in.

          I say only half joking that we should fire half the public school teachers based on competency and double the pay for the half remaining.

          Personally I would rather see the whole system vouchered, but charter schools are a more likely option and work for me. Give parents a choice over where they can send their kids. In many areas that will overwhelmingly be the existing public school, but for some they can send their kids to another school of their choice.

          • DrBillLemoine

            I’d be concerned with your school board and administration more than incompetent teachers. Somebody must hire them and grant them tenure. It’s true that teachers must keep up in their fields, an inservice function of school boards as much as individual teachers. Get after those officials to prevent such problems only encountered with one college teaching program in my lifetime. A school administrator was hired as Dean of education there and teacher candidates/scores improved over time. People/teachers rise to their challenges and standards IF required. Your school superintendent is a lazy chicken failing to build the cases against incompetents, a problem I never had. Depending on your location, the availability of teacher candidates may be limited, but there’s a thing called ‘Teach America’ to call on; also pressure on the feeder teacher program is more a problem than the teacher(s) per se. The money is doable over time as you don’t want to disrupt faculty morale, teaching staffs, or other intangibles.
            Your plan as with nominee Betsy DeVos takes time over years and should not penalize public school financing, a form of legal discrimination. In most of the nation public schools are fine; you face an unusual situation and should clean house, top down, not the reverse. Tenure laws don’t protect incompetents which may or may not be measured by tests. There are 1000s of other factors in good teaching. Choice is mostly offered for reasons of bigotry, segregation, and factors not related to public schools; or, your state needs big changes in education governance.

        Wish you could be a fly on the wall of the school bus, watching your perfect little child, see the monster you have made, students only learn when they become engaged with what they are doing, If a child does not have respect for their teacher it’s because they have been taught to be disobedient to adults, that’s the parents fault, no teacher will want to teach a child that considers themselves to be an equal and deserve respect,. Children need to be molded into mind hungry learning machines, they will fall short if they don’t have respect for the adult teaching what needs to be taught. Like the student that had received a 90% grade on a paper in math class even though he had all the answers correct, he didn’t respect the teacher and because he was not paying attention did not heed the warning to place the staple in the top left corner of the page on a 45 degree angle one inch down and one inch over. Teaching a child to fallow directions is and will always be the best way to create a mind that can achieve higher education. Tool makers follow the instructions to the letter and to the thousandth of an inch.

        • NM Leon

          The “monsters I have made” include an E-6 medically discharged (with purple heart) from the Army (my oldest nephew), and his little brother (who I also raised) and their sister (who I also raised), and they are all very admirable and successful adults (though the “little brother has had some “challenges” in the past).

          • Mike

            Apparently you have taught your children the value of respect. Great job !

          • Mike

            There is a time and a place to ask if a alternative solution is possible, in my view kids need to accept what is being taught and learn the lesson the way it’s being taught, don’t challenge the teacher on the reason for the lesson, do what the teacher asks, then after if the child wants to suggest a different approach let it be heard, the entire class room is being taught by a teacher not just one student, children need to fallow instructions. The time to challenge a lesson is after the challenge not before, it wastes time and it hurts the direction the teacher has in mind. Hey If your little NO neck monster has more to give than the teacher, take the child out of school and start a new school,were your kid can be the teacher. Settle down Jonny !

    • Mike

      This is a complete retort of my experience as a bus driver for a so called charter school, truthfully and to the point,. I was told these students were hand picked to be a cut above the rest, they proved to be a serious huge cut below the rest and not worth the expense of a so called higher education, they were condescending non reachable racist disobedient little bigoted bastards. And I’m sugar coating my words. They actually were no better than the students I took to the traid schools,you know the type the ones that could not function in a public school around other more progressive students, I put in three years as a driver until I HAD ENOUGH, one afternoon I overheard a fifth grade boy explain what he wanted to do to one of the fourth grade girls on the bus, and that’s when I threw in the towel. This type of debauchery can only be taught by example, The parents of the youths going to our inner schools are to blame for the future of this land they have failed their children in moral fortitude to the point of nonexistents, they are going to grow up, to become, WHAT ?

      • DrBillLemoine

        Your anecdotal observations are often closer to the truth than charter school and voucher advocates admit. The first home school parent was in my public school pta, persuaded the legislature to let her teach kids at home–to avoid mixing with black students; pure bigotry and racism. It’s the same for many charter school boards and managers though the reasons vary by location. Big city charters are often segregationist in motives from my viewpoint though some disadvantaged students’ parents think charters can offer better education–not proven the case by research. I refused to be a principal for a large charter school movement in one state because of the covert biases behind many charters.
        Remember the first educators in a child’s life are his/her parents and that’s often impossible to overcome in attitudes and behaviors in school. Their best chance for normal development is public schools where they have many and varied specialists to deal with such problems as your 5th grader who you should report. BTW it’s not all inner city schools, parents and students who are the problem, but that’s where white parents start agitating for segregation found in charters and via vouchers. There is no training for parenthood, but circumstances and environment play a large part in children’s development as well, a reason for some white flight. Thanks for the report.

            Who taught you these lies you keep spouting? That is wht they are, lies. What stops you from looking up fact and truth? You have an Internet connection.

            Islam honors Jesus as a prophet. Islam honors Jesus’ mother, Mary. In fact, the Koran dedicates an entire chapter to Mary.

            Isuspect you are not aware that it was 13 Chatholic Bishops who decided Jesus was a God? That took place in 325 AD.

            I suggest you check out what the Holy Bible has to say about blasphemy. No, you do not need anyone’s permission to sin. However, you will need God’s forgiveness.

            Hadith and Sira

            The most reliable Hadith collection contain numerous accounts of Muhammad and his companions putting people to death for leaving Islam. According to verse 4:80 of the Quran: “Those who obey the Messenger obey Allah.”

            Sahih Bukhari (52:260) – “…The Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.’ ”

            Sahih Bukhari (83:37) – “Allah’s Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate.”

            Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God

            Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery.

            Death for Blasphemy

            One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD’s name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother’s name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. They put the man in custody until the LORD’s will in the matter should become clear. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD’s name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD’s name will surely die.

            Wrong on all counts:

            (1) the jizyah in verse 9-29 is a form of extortion.

            (2) verse 8-41 allows theft from infidels. It refers to loot taken from infidels, whereby 20% of what is stolen goes to Allah and his prophet. The Tafsir of Al Jalalayn refers to the loot as “taken from infidels by force’. That’s called stealing.

            (3) The call for death for apostasy is in both verse 4-89 and in the Hadith. Verse 4-80 requires that Muslims to obey the prophet just like they would obey fuckface Allah, which means that Muslims must obey what the prophet says in the Hadith.

            (4) Islam allows rape. It’s verse 4-24, where sex is allowed with those “that your right hands posses”. All the Tafsirs describe right hand possssions as “captives”. Sex with a captive woman is rape.

            Islam calls for the murder of those who don’t believe. It’s n the Koran in many places, including verses 9-5 and 4-89.

            People who can read can see for themselves. If you want interpretations for those verses or any others, you go by the Tafsirs, such as Ibn Abbas, al Jalalayn, Ibn kathir, plus others. They all say basically the same thing.

            It’s pure evil. Anybody who defends Islam is in fact rationalizing that evil, and is therefore part of the problem.

            Your attempt to compare it to anything else matters not a damn. The theology must stand on the basis of its own merits without reference to anything else.

            Allah is the Arabic word for God. The Old Testatment God of Abraham. The same God worshipped by Jews and Christians.
            Exacrly what do you consider the “power of evil”?

            Say: “O followers of earlier revelation! Do you find fault with us for no other reason than that we believe in God [alone], and in that which He has bestowed from on high upon us as well as that which He has bestowed aforetime? – or [is it only] because most of you are iniquitous?” Say: “Shall I tell you who, in the sight of God, deserves a yet worse retribution than these? They whom God rejected and whom He condemned, and whom He turned into apes and swine because they worshipped the powers of evil: these are yet worse in station, and farther astray from the right path [than the mockers].” (5:59-60)

            In other words, asshole Allah consists non believers “pigs and monkeys”.

            Allah can kiss my ass.

            Why do you lie?

            You are incorrectly citing a parable about individuals who work on the Sabbath.

            Apparently, the Hebrew Bible can condemn those who violate God’s Commandments, but the Koran cannot?

          • ArcticGrayling

            If I want to work on the Sabbath, I am free to do it. If any god calls me nasty names for doing so, then I am free to call that god nasty names.

            And when did I say a word about the Hebrew bible?

          • AKLady2015

            You did not, I did.

            I pointed out that both the Bible and the Koran damn those who work on the Sabbath.

            I’m trying to understand the basis for your bigotry.

            At this time, it has become obvious that you indulge in self-imposed ignorance.

            You refuse to look at truth or facts.

            Allah is a pig.

            Allah is the rhe Arabic langiage word for the Old Testamwnt God of Abraham.

            Allah is the God worshipped by Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Samaritanism, Druze, Rastafari, Mandaeism(not really an Abrahamic religion, they believe that Abraham was a false prophet), and Babism.

            Here is the name of God in many different languages: http://chestofbooks.com/reference/Bepler-Handy-Manual-Of-Knowledge/The-Name-Of-God-In-Different-Languages.html

            You said that there is nothing in Islamic scripture that promotes murder on non believers.

            I have given you numerous references to show that Islam does advocate murder of non Muslims. What other faiths teach is irrelevant.

            “WHAT ABOUTISM” is how complete fucking morons such as yourself attempt to divert a conversation that’s going in a direction they don’t like.

            It’s irrelevant. Eat shit.

          • AKLady2015

            The only things that has come out of your mind, so far, are bigotry, ignorance and sewer language.

          • ArcticGrayling

            The only person who has been shown to be truly ignorant in this exchange is you. You steadfastly maintained that nothing in Islamic scripture promotes the murder of non believers. I have given irrefutable references that it does.

            Your only response has been been lies and “WHAT ABOUTISM”.

            What other faiths may or may not teach is not the point. The point is what Islam teaches.

            And since shithead Allah says such ugly shit in his Koran, I can call that bastard Allah and his son of whore prophet any epithet that I want.

          • AKLady2015

            Why do you lie?

            Allah is the word for God in Arabic.

            Allah is the God of Abraham.

            Your posts make it very clear that you have mever actually read any of the Koran.

            Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

            That verse is talking about the the people who plotted against Jesus (specifically) to destroy him. See Surat ‘Ali `Imran [3:53-59]. Even if you accept that this is a general principle (which seems at odds with the context), this is not Allah telling the Muslims to do so, He is simply saying that that is what he will do.

            The Koran is bigoted against those who want to work on the Sabbath.

          • AKLady2015

            The Holy Bible “is bigoted against those who want to work on the Sabbath.”
            God’s first commandment forbids labor on the Sabbath.
            What is your point?

          • ArcticGrayling

            So there is some pretentious celestial son of a bitch who says I am damned if i work on the sabbath?

            Well damn him!!

            I don’t recognize the Sabbath, so if I want to work on the Sabbath, I will do so. It’s called religious freedom.

            And I will damn any bastard, a god or otherwise, who is uppity enough to damn me. It’s nobody’s business what I do with my time, least of all some dumb fuck of a god who can’t speak English. If that bastard calls me nasty names for doing so, then I will return the compliment. After all, he started with the insults and threats.

            Fuck him.

            Thank you.
            Your input is always welcome
            It says so much about you.

    No doubt CNN will decry his choice for UN ambassador for lack of foreign policy experience.

    As if those with experience have done us any good.

    If he didn’t pick her, CNN would holler racism.
