OMG: Ominous First Look at Trump Coup

Trump's Cabinet of Horrors

Same Old Same Old

Donald Trump's transition team has prepared a preliminary list of potential Cabinet members for his upcoming administration. The list obtained by BuzzFeed News reveals a number of familiar faces including Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and others being weighed for multiple positions. In total, the list includes 41 names and covers 14 different departments. A source told BuzzFeed that the list is not final, and will likely be changed in the future. Attorney General picks include Chris Christie, Jeff Sessions and Rudy Giuliani. Newt Gingrich, John Bolton and Bob Corker are listed as potential picks for Secretary of State. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is the only name listed under chief of staff, while Sessions is also the only one being considered for director of Office of Management and Budget. Potential Secretary of Commerce picks include Christie and Huckabee, while Carson is under consideration to be Secretary of Education. Christie is also being weighed for Secretary of Homeland Security, and Carson, Gingrich and Florida Gov. Rick Scott are potential picks for Secretary of Health and Human Services. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin also makes a surprise appearance on the shortlist, mentioned as one of seven potential candidates to become the Secretary of the Interior.

Measure N Fails to Reach 2/3 Majority: Congrats to NO Campaign

Fellow blogger Dan Stegink of Pacifica.city shared correspondence from the state (see links below) about the controversial library funding measure, which failed to pass November 8. Dan had asked the state: "The proposed argument for the new library (Measure N) states that the California Coastal Commission (CCC) has thoroughly vetted Measure N: 'The Coastal Commission and third-party experts thoroughly vetted Measure N to ensure our library is safe from flooding and sea-level rise.' Is that accurate?" The CCC said NO (see CCC letter at first link below).
