Will Trump Let the [Mad] Dog Out?

by Mike Segar | Reuters.com  |  published on December 2, 2016

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump will nominate retired General James Mattis to lead the Pentagon, two media outlets reported on Thursday, but a Trump spokesman said no decision had been made.

The Washington Post said Trump had chosen Mattis and that an announcement was likely to be made early next week. CNN also reported that Trump had settled on Mattis. Reuters could not immediately confirm the planned nomination.

Trump spokesman Jason Miller said on Twitter that “no decision has been made yet with regard to Secretary of Defense.”

Mattis is a revered figure in the Marine Corps known for his tough talk, distrust of Iran and battlefield experience in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The choice of a seasoned military strategist would be another indication that Trump, a Republican, intends to steer U.S. foreign policy away from Democratic President Barack Obama’s increased reliance on U.S. allies to fight Islamist militants and to help deter Russian and Chinese aggression in Europe and Asia.

    After O’Bummer showed te world how weak he really was by being an apologist, drawing a “line in the sand” and letting it evaporate by NOT keeping his word and creating the rise of ISIS, WE need real leadership like we had during WWII.

    Let’s lower unemployment the Republican way —
    kill them in an unnecessary war or two …
    While making $billions for the Military Industrial Complex.

    About time somebody bit these perverted bottom dwellers know who the Big Dogs are.

    • AKLady2015

      Have you considered you are one of the perverted bottom dwellers?

      • dmttbt

        Let me see if I have this correct. You think Obama and Hillary are honorable? Are you currently under mental evaluation?

        • AKLady2015

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

          • gvette

            LMAO…do you have that on speed type. I see it so often now. You’re wrong so much, it isn’t funny, so that’s your only come back.

  • dmttbt

    Sounds like a great move to me and when I see and hear these liberal college presidents say that there is no way that he can deport all the illegals, I can only think of Eisenhower when they said he couldn’t either. They didn’t say illegals, they said undocumented. That is suppose to be different. We have laws about legal immigration and they have not been enforced for so many years we want to act like they don’t exist. Trump carried the Latino vote because when they come here legally they are against those who just walk across the border.
    The wall can be a fence with concertina wire with high voltage. Then on our side of the border we need motion activated claymore mines to clean up those who get over the fence. The actions we have taken in the past don’t work and we know they don’t.

    • AKLady2015

      Sure thing, just like the one in East Berlin.
      Walls keep people in, not just out.
      I suggest you remember that.

  • Art Hock

    You just can’t beat a great Marine General to lead us out of the swamp that Obama put us in! A strong military and law enforcement to straighten out this country!

    • KKmoderate

      Drain the Swamp!!!!!

    • AKLady2015

      Here comes the Fourth Reich.
      I’m willing to bet you are not going to like it one bit.

      • Art Hock

        Are you happy with the dimwit we have had for 8 years who has us in 5 wars? Even N.Korea and Iran are threatening us because of old “Week Knees”.

        • AKLady2015

          Only Congress can declare war:
          Article I, Section 8, Clause 11

          You elect Congress.
          Nex time, try to make better choices.

  • ABO

    Mr. Trump stated at the first stop on his “thank you” tour (Ohio, last evening) that he had indeed chosen Gen. Mattis for the position of Secretary of Defense. An excellent choice in my humble opinion.

  • Pat Enery

    And we thought that Hillary was a warmonger. I voted for Trump thinking that he would be a better peace negotiator. I wonder what Putin must be thinking now? This choice does not bode well for anyone but Israel. Enough with our sons & daughters dying for an illegal nation of leeches & war criminals.

    • Just1Saddletramp

      There will not be any peace for the U.S. as long as the rest of the world pushes us around while we dance to their tune. Our enemies need to fear us. Contrary to liberal ideology, respect is earned out of fear.

      • DWB

        I agree with you and a strong military is needed. Putin has respect for Trump because he tells it like it is.

        • AKLady2015

          Hia, ha, ha, ha …
          Trump is Putin friend. YOu ahve missed a lot of facts.
          Trump has made a lot o money in Communist countries.

    • gvette

      Point of fact for you Pat. Let’s look at the body bag count from Afghanistan . An estimated 75 percent of the all U.S. military deaths and about 90 percent of the injuries linked to the ongoing war in Afghanistan have occurred under President Obama’s watch. You’re a good little DemonRAT, but look up some facts before you post. Thank God, your idiot Killary didn’t get in.

      • AKLady2015

        What has that got to do with Obama?

        Congress authorized $557 billion to fund the war in Afghanistan — enough for every man, woman and child in Chicago to buy 20 iPads, 30 Kindle Fires, Bulls season tickets, a campaign fundraiser photo with Michelle Obama and dinner at Alinea every night for a year.

        • gvette

          It has to do with your nigger getting more of our people killed then Bush. People are calling “mad Dog” a war monger. That’s what my post was about. Try to keep up. It makes you look dumber then you already are, when you don’t.

          • AKLady2015

            Take your ignorant, foul mouth and move somewhere that suits you better. Military officers control fighting, not Presidents. On top of that, the rest of your statement is also false.

            Over 4,000 ISAF soldiers and civilian contractors as well as over 15,000 Afghan national security forces members have been killed, as well as nearly 20 thousand civilians.

            Maybe you should research the ties between the bin Laden and Bush families …

          • gvette

            God you’re thick. The bulk of the body bag count was under gay Barry. To bring you up to speed, if that’s at all possible was Was more have died, under Barrys reign, as to Bushes.

          • AKLady2015

            Take your ignorant, foul mouth and move somewhere that suits you better.

          • gvette

      • AKLady2015

        Are you willing to pay higher taxes?
        Right.
        Didn’t think so.

        • Richard Sprowl

          What the fuck are you talking about, where the hell did taxes get into this convo

    • dmttbt

      By the way, we are nearly 8 years of Obama, and the only things that matter have gotten worse. The officer in the military who shot and killed many was called a work place disturbance. Who the hell is ready to accept that bull sh_t.

      • AKLady2015

        Over 4,000 Americans killed in two unecessary wars.
        Over 100,000 innocents killed in Iraq.

        The VA overwhelmed and underfunded.

        War expense running up the national debt — Afghanistan and Iraq cost an averagw of $1 million, per day, each.

    • KKmoderate

      Haven’t you heard “You don’t negotiate with terrorists”?
      We choose the right president. Give him a chance! He hasn’t even taken the Oath of office yet!

      • AKLady2015

        Two more wars paid for with money borrowed from China.

        • gvette

          Do you remember they attacked us first? Oh, and the borrowing money from china part, we also give them financial aid. Maybe Trump will look into that, and we can stop it. In 2014 the U.S. State Department and its USAID program provided nearly all of the $12.3 million in taxpayer-funded aid set aside for China. And another $6.8 million is on tap for Beijing this year, according to Foreign Assistance.gov.That’s the insanity of our government. Once again Lady, you are a dumb fuck DemonRAT! Just like the rest of your ilk.

          • AKLady2015

            Who attacked us first?
            Not Iraq, not Afghanistan ..
            Once again, gvette, you are short on facts.

          • gvette

            al-Qaeda flew into our towers. Read that, as Muslims.

            Now you say ais covers a vast area. You’d say that because like everything else, you don’t really have a clue. The US spends roughly $37,680,000,000 in foreign aid. There are 195 countrys in the world.Of that number, we give aid to 96% of them.

          • AKLady2015

            On Sept. 11, 2001, extremists attacked very specific targets. You, like so many others, seem to believe that 9-11 justifies the killing of millions of innocents. People who have no control, whatsoever, over the actions of al Quaeda.
            You like so many others, don’t seem to recognize the fact that the American indiscrimimate klling is actually servingto create more enemies and place Americans in more dangee. It has also placed America’s allues in danger, as has been demonstrated by the recent killings.

          • gvette

            I realize that if we had a president like Onigger, or you in office on Dec. 7 1941, we’d be speaking German

          • AKLady2015

            Dec. 7 1941 is Pear Harbor Day, i.e. the day Japan attacked America, not Germany.

            If we had a President as ignorant as you in office, the Japanese would have won the war.

            December 11, 1941 is when Germany deckared war on America

          • gvette

            That was the start of a two front war. like i said, had Onigger been in power, we’d of been in deep shit. I guess you forgot, when your nigger got elected, he went on a world tour apologizing for our country. Gutless wonder, just like the rest of you DemonRATS!

          • AKLady2015

            Only Congress can declare war.
            You elect Congress.
            Maybe you should pick better people.
            The two unecessary wars started by Bush killed 4,000 Americand and over 1 million innocent children elederly and women. Then people like you wonder why most of the Arab world hates America.

          • gvette

            1728 US troops have died in Afghanistan since October 7, 2001, with 1153 of those deaths having occurred since President Obama’s inauguration. 575 US troops died in Afghanistan during President Bush’s term in office. I guess that puts your nigger in the lead for deaths. Yes, I understand you’re DemonRAT, and will always try to make that disaster in the white house look good, but you can’t. Everything that pile of shit has done, has either failed, or put our people in harms way. Now that Trump is keeping Preet Bharara as the US attorney, we may well see Killary behind bars. With a little luck, Onigger with her.

          • AKLady2015

            Trump has not yet been elected.
            The Electoral College votes Dec. 19.
            In 2000, Gore had the popular vote.

          • gvette

            I’m quit familiar with it. Even still, the investigations into Killary ARE still going on. LOL..I know Killary has climbed on board with Jill, the shill. Killary will continue to try to get into the white house.

          • AKLady2015

            Your childishness is not helping anyone.
            It embarasses America and Americans.
            The world does not think in terms of the 1st Amendment. They just see your disrespect and ignorance.

          • gvette

            Actually the embarrassment to our country, is Gay Barry, nasty Moochelle, the two rent a kids, and the mother in law I see we are going to support. I look at that crew, and still think ghetto. Funny, Trump isn’t in office yet, and he’s done more for people, then Barry has in 8 years!

          • AKLady2015

            Your posts are insults to America and all it stands for.
            Your posts Document huge ignorance, bigotry and hate. Your childishness is not helping anyone.

          • gvette

            First off, I don’t give a rats ass about what the world thinks. As for the 1st Amendment, we still have it in this country. I know had Killary of won, she, just like the gay guy guy, hate it. You’re a liberal DemonRAT, so you still live in the do as I say, not as I do, world. The other thing I think I should remind you of, not only did Trump win. republicans won races all over the country.

          • AKLady2015

            Not liberal, but rather an Independent.
            Your posts speak to bigotry and hate.
            Your language and childish insults embarass America.
            That language makes you appear ignorant.

          • gvette

            Now you see. That’s in your opinion, on how the world sees me. Let me clue you in. The world isn’t paying any attention to me. What’s comical is, what you say to me. It makes you look like a legend in your own mind!! You can call yourself an independent, but the fact you like gay Barry, and crooked Killary. Even with all the information that was brought fourth, you still want them in power. That my dear is the sign of a liberal! You can lie to yourself, but not to me. It’s like a neon sign on your forehead!!

          • AKLady2015

            You assume someone would want to lie to you.
            WHat would the be the point of doing so?

          • gvette

            It’s not an assumption. Barry has lied about constantly. As for on here, I don’t think anyone would, on purpose.

          • AKLady2015

            President Obama has not told a single lie.
            You have been lied to.
            You are lying and repeating lies.

            Trump is a law breaker.
            Trump is a legally documented bigot.

            Your web page is one lie, after another.

            1. The Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), Pub. L. 107-40, codified at 115 Stat. 224 and passed as S.J.Res. 23 by the United States Congress on September 14, 2001, authorizes the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001 and any “associated forces”.

            2. The Halliburton/KBR contract is a multi-year, federal contract which all agences can use. It was properly bid upon.

            3. Just which lobbyists are in the Obama Adinistration. Without names, the accusation is just aords.

            4. Raised money??? Maybe you can tell me how a candidate can control who contributes what to which organization?

            5 Congress refused to permit Gitmo to b closed.

            6. Congress makes the laws. TARP was passed by Congress.

            7. Increased the war on Mary Jane … BS. Again that is something Congress controls.

            8. They very idea that Geithner did his own tax returns is the ultimate of stupidity. he man had an accountant.

            Blah, blah, blah, lie, insult …repeat ad nauseam.

    Our country not only needs a strong military, we need seasoned and experienced leadership in the military as well as a strong CIC at the helm.

    • AKLady2015

      Right, we need two more unecessary wars, an additonal 4,000 American ded, about 50,000 or rmore injured troops for an already overflowing VA systme. Then there are the 100,000 innocent Iraqi children, elderly and women that were killed. Not so many in Afghanistan, as ir is not as densely populated. Give us time, we can increase those numbers.

      These last Republican wars have been ongoing for 13 years. The cost to the taxpayer averaged $1 million a day each.
