No wonder Flynn may be copping a deal with the FBI.  I wonder if Hillary is chanting "Lock Him Up" somewhere?

As the Washington Post’s Ashley Parker and Philip Rucker reported on Sunday, Kushner has been tapped to run an entirely new office with the “sweeping authority to overhaul the federal bureaucracy and fulfill key campaign promises....

"Jared Kushner, who comes to Washington with no government experience, no policy experience, no diplomatic experience, and business experience limited to his family’s real estate development firm, a brief stint as a newspaper publisher, and briefly bidding to acquire the Los Angeles Dodgers, will be working on trade, Middle East policy in general, an Israel-Palestine peace deal more specifically, reforming the Veterans Administration, and solving the opioid crisis.


Oh wait, that’s not all! Apparently, this new office will also be responsible for “modernizing the technology and data infrastructure of every federal department and agency; remodeling workforce-training programs; and developing “transformative projects” under the banner of Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan, such as providing broadband internet service to every American.”

....two factions of that inner circle seems to openly loathe one another ― the Reince Priebus faction is made up of government careerists who are distrusted by the Steve Bannon faction, who want to humiliate career bureaucrats, dismantle the “administrative state,” .......
the third being “the entire extended Trump family,” of which Kushner is the nominal head......

FDR's presidency was known as the New Deal.

JFK's presidency was known as the New Frontier.

LBJ's presidency was known as The Great Society.



Trump's presidency will be remembered as The Amateur Hour.



Around and around she goes--appointment for this high level federal government advisory post will go to who knows next--which unqualified, inexperienced, inept Trump relative.

After this Administration, no one in the United States should complain about Prince Charles.

Give Nixon a break - - don't you remember those long cozy walks on the beach he used to take with his close friend, Bebe Rebozo?

...wearing his blue suit and a tie.

Though Nixon was a lot slimmer. Must have

Required Qualifications and Experience: Being Daddy's Girl

For Trump to even consider doing this is an insult to the American people, even the ones who voted for him.

It is nepotism, pure and simple.  If you have an office or work area in a government building, you are "employed."  

She continues to run her "companies" and to market them while working in a federal office building.

Why should she even be considered for a security clearance if she has no official position with the government.  That's like saying the spouses and children of everyone in the military with a clearance should also have them.

Will she sit in on security briefings?

Apparently Trump or Bannon or someone is making sure that the cabinet appointees toe their party line.  While most positions go vacant, the political watch dogs are there in force.  Must be something they learned from Putin or some other dictator.

I was thinking along those same lines.  Trump doesn't seem to be thinking in terms of job performance and acumen for the position as he is about "fixing" things for HIS own advantage.

 

And firing a guy he told was going to be kept?  And HE'S not the LIAR?  C'MON now........
