Is it?

 

Absolutely. Legal immigration quotas haven't kept up with population & economic growth over the last 30 years.

I like all of his choices so far with the exception of the CIA pick. Hate the CIA pick.

 

I think the person who runs the CIA should have military and/or intelligence agency experience.

He's probably referring to Muslim immigration.

Would someone please remind Hanna of who Obama’s first three picks were back in 2008? She seems awfully concerned about the skin color of Trump’s picks …

Trump so far has selected only white men: http://politi.co/2g4XSFt

OH YEAH. That’s right. Obama’s first picks were white dudes but did you see the media melting down over that? No.

and also Ben Carson was offered and refused.

The left is always obsessed with the color of your skin. It's essentially one of the first things they look for when judging someone.

 

Weird.

 

What's that called again?

The only reasonable way to handle illegal immigration is to disincentivize it while incentivizing legal immigration.

 

So yeah, idiotic.

In 1986, Sessions was Borked avant la lettre, with Ted Kennedy railing against his nomination for a federal judgeship with his usual grandiose lies about a throwback to a shameful era. The charges that Sessions was a racist were contemptible 30 years ago; the Democrats in the Senate and their media organs will only discredit themselves further by trying to recycle them now.

 

Here ya go. Leading story. Big headline.

 

Jeff Sessions Was Deemed Too Racist To Be A Federal Judge. He'll Now Be Trumps Attorney General.

THE NARRATIVE DEMANDS DISARRAY, THEREFORE DISARRAY SHALL BE REPORTED:

 

On that precise point, the New York Times, in a widely circulated article, will describe this day at Trump Tower as a scene of “disarray” for the transition team.

 

In fact, it’s all hands on: Mike Pence, the vice president-elect and transition chief, and Reince Priebus, the new chief of staff, shuttling between full conference rooms; Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and by many accounts his closest advisor, conferring in the halls; Sen. Jeff Sessions in and out of meetings on the transition team floor; Rudy Giuliani upstairs with Trump (overheard: “Is the boss meeting-meeting with Rudy or just shooting the ****?”), and Bannon with a long line of men and women outside his corner office.

 

If this is disarray, it’s a peculiarly focused and organized kind.

 

 

 

How about that?

The makeup of the Senate in 1986 was 55 Dems to 45 Reps. The Dems could do whatever they wanted. They were just practicing "Borking" for the following year.

Sessions was denied by the judiciary committee controlled 10 to 8 Republican to Democrat. 2 Republicans voted against him. One, Specter, later said he regretted his vote to reject Sessions.

 

Setting that history lesson aside, Trump is creating a cabinet with an onerous undertone to watch closely. Bannon is a horrible person to have near the presidency. Sessions is someone to watch closely if he survives his confirmation process.

Weasels, snakes, and stoats are leaving DC in droves come January, and we won't be watching them closely anymore. Good riddance.

How about that, but why do I have the feeling that you will criticize anyone Trump nominates?

Refusing To Serve Customers You Don’t Agree With Is Suddenly Cool Again

 

Friday, fashion designer Sophie Theallet, who has dressed the current first lady Michelle Obama, offered a preemptive refusal to hypothetically dress the next first lady, Melania Trump, should she ask for some of her clothes— presumably not the ones available at The Gap. In her unsolicited letter, Theallet informed the world that a person who did not ask for any of her clothes would not be getting them.

“As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady,” the letter reads. “The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by.”

“I encourage my fellow designers to do the same,” it goes on.

In refusing service to Trump, Theallet appealed to “individual freedom” and the idea of her art as an expression of the company’s “artistic and philosophical ideals.” Her announcement was called “noble,” “patriotic,” and “admirable integrity.”

Horrible people in Washington? Yeah, that would be a first.

 

 

How presumptive of this chick to think that Melania would even want her to be her designer. This would be like me saying "I refuse to date Kate Upton."

These people are just so full of it. I'm so glad my parents raised me not to be an obnoxious douche.

 

Or at least I think I'm not an obnoxious douche.

I don't know. Priebus is a fine choice. Bannon is a bad person who contributed mostly filth to the political dialog in the US. Sessions is eminently qualified and while I disagree with some of his activism on anti-gay marriage and other topics, his politics is what I expect from an R. My comment was on the tone Trump is setting with these people. As I said, something to watch.
