Rudy as secretary of State, Grenell at UN

I am giving President Trump the same advice I gave him as a candidate. None. He knows what he is doing. I said it was up to him to get elected. Took 30 states, the most since Clinton's re-election 20 years ago.

Doesn't mean I won't comment on his moves.

From the Associated Press: "Rudy Giuliani is the favorite to be secretary of state in Donald Trump's administration." Looks like Richard Grenell will be our UN ambassador.

Good. Rudy belongs in the Cabinet, but attorney general is a terrible fit. Powerful but rather stationary. Solicitor general gets to present cases to the Supreme Court and cool stuff like that.

Here is what Rudy brings as secretary of State.

Credibility. The hero of 9/11 is well-versed in the war against terrorists. He's cosmopolitan, which means he's likely to accept that there are non-radical Muslims (at last count around a billion of them). On the other hand, he

By the way, Trump already has Israel, Russia and Britain on the same page in fighting the Islamic State.

Competence. As a federal prosecutor, brought down Iranian oil runner Marc Rich, and then he put Mafia godfathers away. Turned New York City's crime rate around as mayor.

Not a Washington lifer. Sorry, John Bolton. Stick to your lobbying and Fox News appearances.

Won't go to Antarctica. No one can be as dumb as John Kerry.

OK, no one not named Al Gore.

Knows cyber security. Hillary's email jeopardized the country. For example, our enemies know the names of our spies.

Yankees fan. As Joe E. Brown said at the end of Some Like It Hot, nobody's perfect.

Knows Trump. Has his trust.

Richard Grenell knows the UN. Worked as spokesman for our UN contingency under Bush 43. He didn't last long as a Romney's foreign policy man in the 2012 election:
I have decided to resign from the Romney campaign as the Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama’s foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign. I want to thank Governor Romney for his belief in me and my abilities and his clear message to me that being openly gay was a non-issue for him and his team.
Democrats and the media will heap more scorn upon him than they would a straight white male because they must keep people in line.

I look forward to the day when color, sex, creed, et cetera, do not matter. But as long as we allow politicians to profit by dividing us along these lines, the divisions will remain.

"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.

  1. I'd prefer Rudy as AG, to clean out the DOJ swamp and re-open the Lois Lerner file.

    That said, the DOJ is in such desperate need for reform that a younger crusader may be needed.

  2. If they go after Grenell, they finish what they started with Condi Rice and show who the real bigots are.

  3. How about Ken Starr for Attorney General?

  4. You're right. Rudy's going to be in there somewhere. "America's Mayor". That guy was a bull during the last two weeks even with whatever is going on with his back/legs. Since there are going to be fewer apology tours to our globalist masters, I think he would do a bang up job on domestic issues. We need to re-focus on that domestic side of State.

    I couldn't have said it any better with Bolton than what you did. Neocon warhawks are so 90's.

    In the end Trump will be Trump. He's surprised everyone so far out of the gate, so, lots of grains of salt sitting on the counter. Loyalty is the key. (and people like Pam Bondi may surprise and piss off more people).

    Whatever the outcome I trust my President. Very strange feeling. This is gonna be good.

  5. Or even better, Monica Crowley (former aid to Richard Nixon) as AG?

  6. Dems are great Dividers.

    I'd kinda like to see Darth Cheney in there somewhere, attracting much of the Dems' ire and vitriol (draining THAT swamp a bit).

  7. I still believe John Bolton would make the best Secretary of State. But I didn't get elected. - Elric

  8. I trust those well-oiled DC lobbyists - you know, those anti-establishment folks - who are heading up the various branches of Trump's transition team will find the perfect individuals to clean up the swamp.

  9. Naw...Rudy oughta be Director of the FBI. Can Comey. There is only one man I would wanna see as AG: Mister. Trey. Gowdy. The dude kicks ass, takes names, and then kicks some more ass for good measure.

  10. I agree with Trey being AG. He has some scores to settle with how he has been treated by the left, let him loose going after the left corruption for a few years and it will be all cleaned up. Rudy has been on the seen to long to take the fight to the left I think.

  11. Can't allow women, people of color or LGBT's to leave the reservation. Next thing you know they will start to vote wrong.
