The Trump “Dream Team”
When Trump is nominated, on his way to the White House, I would like him to pick the following for his Cabinet (I leave out a few that in my estimation don't matter much to the guiding raison d'être of my list here -- namely, their role in effecting a more robust & intelligent redirection of American policy vis-à-vis the problem of Islam -- such as Secretary of Agriculture or Chief of Staff).
Without further ado, here is my Trump “Dream Team”:
VP: Michelle Bachmann. She risked her career and was ostracized by many fellow Republicans for pursuing conscientiously her concern about Muslim Brotherhood influence in Washington -- and she's a woman, though handicapped in our PC MC culture by being Conservative and Christian (black eyes in our time if expressed seriously).
Secretary of Defense: Stephen Coughlin. He was dismissed from his post at the Pentagon back on Jan. 3, 2008 (while Bush was still in office) because his diligent pursuit of the evidence against Islamic Sharia as crucial to our knowledge of the enemy raised the hackles of a Muslim also working at the Pentagon, Hashem Islam, who apparently exploited his toadying relationship with Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England, who forthwith dismissed Coughlin. Since that time, Coughlin has done great work for the Counter-Jihad, including his exhaustive book Catastrophic Failure and his many videos. Even if I have certain misgivings about certain facets of his approach (see here and here), he's obviously light years better than most of the Washington establishment pool from which to draw a SecDef candidate.
Secretary of State: Newt Gingrich. He has the advantage of decades of Washington experience, and has shown signs of waking up intelligently (though likely still imperfectly) to the problem of Islam.
Press Secretary: Ann Coulter. Oh, that would be rich, to see her dish & trash the Press Corps...!
Attorney General: Thomas Sowell. Need I say more...? What a wondrous corrective for the years that racist, paranoid hatemonger, Eric Holder, held the office (followed by the equally disastrous Loretta Lynch)!
Secretary of Education: Sarah Palin. A modest gesture of our collective middle finger at the PC MC mainstream.
Secretary of Homeland: Frank Gaffney. Notwithstanding his soft spot for Better Cop Muslims like Zuhdi Jasser, he's far better than most other contenders out there, what with his fine work at Secure Freedom Radio and over the years his tireless efforts to get the word out about Muslim Brotherhood influence on Washington.
And, finally, a new Cabinet position, to work in collaboration with the SecHome:
Counter-Jihad Czar: Robert Spencer. Though many of my readers know I've had many problems over the years with Spencer's methodology in certain respects, I think his role on this "Dream Team" would be an enormous boost and shot in the arm for our collective graduation as a society along the LCPOI (Learning Curve on the Problem of Islam). And, contrary to Spencer's own silly (if not bizarre) belief that I "hate him", I don't hate him. As I've said many times over the years, I rather esteem a large chunk of his fine work educating countless people over the years around the world in his books, lectures, and perhaps most importantly, his influential blog, Jihad Watch. That said, Spencer would not be absolutely ideal for this position, given that he has said many times that he is "not anti-Islam" and "not anti-Muslim" -- but again, better may not be best, but it's better than worse, is it not...?
