If there is going to be someone who ran for President in 2016 or any other year in Trump’s cabinet, it will be someone who ran in the other party:
Jim Webb, at Defense.
It would be the traditional someone-else-of-the-other-party in the Cabinet, and it would be a consequential agency, and Trump and Webb mesh fairly well on military and foreign policy, and a number of other issues.

Obama noted that the U.S. military is the country’s most diverse institution, comprised of immigrants and native-born service members representing all religions and no religion. He says they are all “forged into common service.”
When Obama wanted to accomplish what turned out to be the keynote accomplishment of his first term, and needed the military’s help, he turned to the least diverse part of it, the Navy SEALs.

I’m not surprised that the Gayvy is the branch which is doing this first.
I think it’s more proof of the theory that the reason why gay cis men are so defensive of transgenders is because so many gay men seriously think they’ll want to go transgender.
And if you didn’t know how I was going to end this post, you must not have been paying attention in the last 13 years.

First off, what kind of surname is Anti-Palindrome?
Whatever the answer, the feminist essayist (“queer/femme antagonist”) with that surname has a new essay on how camouflage clothing is anti-feminist.
I didn’t need to go any further.
It’s because high-T man’s man types wear it either for official public duties (the military-police spectrum), or unofficial private pursuits (e.g. hunting, civilian militia, paintball).
Am I right? Or am I wicked right?
Remember, feminist-lesbian-Jews want women in full active military combat, and Obama has gotten them 99% of the way there.
The raison d’etre of Earth, circa August 9, 2016, is to troll me and specifically and explicitly me.

While there was plenty of action yesterday, it wasn’t on par with 1968. Sure, there are three more days to go, but I get the feeling that there won’t be any ’68-style confrontations.
My assessment of yesterday is that we got a lot of blatantly contradictory mish mash, the most obvious of which is that we were told that the country is already great because Baraq Obama made it that way, and the country is a dystopian hellhole of social injustice, income and wealth inequality and Republicans winning elections on occasion.
Michelle Obama used the occasion of her speech last night to note that “big men with guns” take their daughters to school. These people all want us to hate cops, but they want their protection. Remember, Baraq and Michelle Obama deliberately bought in a Chicago neighborhood that had two layers of police protection, CPD and UCPD. They want wafer thin dainty transgenders armed with restraining orders to be your cops, but they want big men with guns to protect them. They want affirmative action for the military and law enforcement, but when he wanted to pull off the keynote accomplishment of his first term, he turned to the whitest part of the military, the Navy SEALs.

EU wants its own standing army, because NATO won’t defend Europe.
I know, right? NATO members states’ armed forces aren’t defending Europe from the immigration invasion, (which Angela Merkel asked for, shhh), so the EU wants its own army that won’t defend Europe from the immigration invasion (hint: the EU and Germany are basically the same thing, shhh).
