Trump Taking Résumés From Neocons

trump-shrugBy Kurt Nimmo

Remember when Donald Trump criticized the neocons and the neocons went out and tried to run a #NeverTrump candidate, a former CIA guy in Utah?

It’s all water under the bridge now.

Trump is looking to stock his administration with establishment insiders and Bush-era neocons. He’s even thinking about putting a notorious bankster in charge of the Treasury.

From the New York Times:

Since the election was resolved early Wednesday, there have been at least informal contacts between the two factions, according to several people in both camps who refused to be identified. One person who is helping Mr. Trump’s transition team said the group was already receiving résumés from former Republican officials, including some of the signers of two open letters this year excoriating Mr. Trump’s foreign policy views. At the same time, the transition team has also made unofficial overtures to some of the people who signed the two letters — one in March and the second in August.

The letter was signed by a number of staunch neocons, including Max Boot, Michael Chertoff, and Eliot A. Cohen.

No word who sent résumés and who is being considered.

Trump dashed any hope we would finally move away from a neocon foreign policy when his campaign talked up Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, and the notorious neocon John Bolton. Former CIA boss and neocon James Woolsey has said nice things about Trump.

Plus, two of the top neocons in Congress are ready to work with Trump:

It’s beginning to look like business as usual.

  1. WOW!!! It didn’t take long to prove my well established theory that ALL campaign promises are LIES!!! Trump PROMISED to impose term limits to remove the neocon lifers from DC!!! This is outrage! I wonder how much he got paid? Or was this his plan from the beginning? Donald Trump has always been a democrat. He donated to billery’s campaign, and to the ultra corrupt kkklinton foundation. NOW his true colors will show in the form of pseudo conservatism, which the sheeple will blindly follow along with. BEWARE AMERICA OF THE RIGHT WING BACKLASH AIMED AT DELETING FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE! Remember you read this two years from now!

  2. Any neocons/ziocons means an owned president.

  3. He better not lie….I don’t care if he gives them jobs not involving foreigh policy
    Trump needs to dance with the ones who brought him

    • Here is some advice, put down that glass of Chump flavored Fool-Aid before you finish the whole glass, it’s full of lies and deception. Better jump off the chump train while you can, he’s a fraud.

  4. this story from the NYT is a plant story not real according to Roger Stone as of 3 mins ago

    • i sure hope it is not true!

    • Why would they make it up? The election is over, I’ve seen the man snuggle up to these A$$holes all along with my own eyes, I don’t trust Roger Stone any further than I can throw the SOB. Trump is another fraud, we’ve been chumped……..Again. Well, not me I knew Trump was just another version of the same thing. Trump talks out of both sides of his pie hole, he’s a phony. His election win isn’t a “victory” for the freedom movement. The man is NO friend of the liberty movement ok?

      • I totally agree with you but this story was made up by the time, or else they’d sue the pants of Roger Stone for defamation.
