    This is an interesting BBC article on whom they see to be part of the transition team. They provide a bit of background on each and actually discuss some names we never see here in the USA media.

    I like the idea of appointing people to head departments they want to get rid of.

    Trump Administration Picks



    BuzzFeed is clearly a far-left site so one has to take the commentary with a grain of salt. But it does present a clear picture of the people President-Elect Trump will be seeking advice from and giving orders to. Several of them, IMHO, are outstanding.

    Dr. Ben Carson for HUD – who better than someone who's lived there?

    LTG Mike Flynn – another who's been on the front lines.

    Senator Jeff Sessions – a no-nonsense politician who can quickly wade into the political mire of the Department of Justice.

    And then comes this from the ultra-Left Daily Kos


    Donald Trump's contemptible cabinet (with poll!)



    The vitriolic hatred from the Left is almost unbelievable if it wasn't an ultimate form of Liberalism. Of all the tripe in this article, the comments about Dr. Carson were the most disgusting:



    Ben Carson at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Pick your favorite Ben Carson theory of lunacy: The pyramids were built for storing grain? God gave the retired pediatric neurosurgeon the answers to his chemistry final in a dream? NASA made it to the moon because God was in the Declaration of Independence? All of those whackadoodle theories have nothing to do with housing policy, unless you count the pyramids, which did house dead folks. But then again, nothing he’s ever done has anything to do with housing policy.



    I can only repeat – the good doctor LIVED in the blight of urban disorder and the shackles of a single mother. Who could be more qualified than he?



    The remainder of this disgusting article can be found @ Donald Trump's contemptible cabinet (with poll!)

    The real fear is that these people will expose liberal incompetence.

    Me too. Need qualified people to oversee shutting 'em down. Otherwise, for example, the lefty dopes running those departments might blow through the remaining budget dollars before the door hits them in the ass on their way out.
