Just a wild outsider’s guess, but I’d say that if the President makes the switch it will because he thinks she will be better in one or more ways. Perhaps now that he has a track record he doesn’t need the stable, solidly conservative aura of Mr. Pence to reassure potential voters so Mr. Pence brings less to the table. Perhaps having a women, and particularly as strong a woman as Ms. Haley is seen as likely to bring into the fold voters who otherwise might not vote for PDJT. Perhaps he is thinking long term. Who do you think is more likely to be able to win in 2024 and to move PDJT’s agenda forward after he is gone, Mr. Pence or Ms. Haley?

ETA: While I didn’t consider the source, you’ll note that I said “...if the President makes the switch...”

It is possible that Vanity Fair is just trying to stir stuff up. It is possible that PDJT or his team spun the rumor up just to stir stuff up. One of the great (and very entertaining) things about this President is how he starts a kerfuffle and while the media and libtards (and sometimes some of us) are losing their minds about the kerfuffle he quietly gets more winning done for the American people. Long live PDJT!

I don’t believe it. Pence is a loyal and effective stalwart aide.




Note to self: Don’t clutter threads with gratuitous posts.

I’ll believe it when I see the announcement. We’re heard all manner of complete horseshit about this campaign and administration from day one, and it has mostly borne out to be exactly that: horseshit.

News media, even the pseudo versions, just trying to keep the shitpot stirred up, as they’ve been doing since January 20, 2017. Don’t mean nothing, ignore.

Remember the craziness at the CFPB when the former CFPB director tried to jam a DEM as his replacement ?

https://www.reuters.com/articl...m&utm_source=twitter

The U.S. Senate voted 50-49 on Thursday to confirm President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the U.S. consumer watchdog

Kathy Kraninger will serve as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), replacing acting chief Mick Mulvaney, after Trump signs a declaration approving her five-year term.

The banking industry and consumer groups will be watching to see whether Kraninger, who is currently a senior official at the White House budget office, will take on Mulvaney’s mantle and continue to aggressively curtail the CFPB’s enforcement and rule-writing agenda.

Kraninger faced criticism during her nomination hearing in July about the role she played in the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy that separated more than 2,000 children from their parents.


The CFPB was formed in 2011 under Democratic President Barack Obama in the aftermath of the 2007-2009 financial crisis to protect ordinary Americans from predatory lending.

Democrats say the agency plays a critical role in protecting consumers, but Republicans have repeatedly criticized the CFPB as heavy-handed and overreaching.

Somebody tell me the names of people who have been consistently loyal to the President who he has fired. He wisely surrounds himself with consistently loyal people. The people who have left leaked or turned against him, or left because they chose to. If VP Pence stays loyal, VP Pence stays on the ticket.

I don't really care who's on the ticket with trump.
But I wouldn't be too surprised either way. He will wait to see how the dem primaries appear to be shaking out and then make the call.

https://www.breitbart.com/poli...xt-attorney-general/

President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that he will nominate William Barr as his new Attorney General.

Barr served as Attorney General during the George H.W. Bush administration from 1991-1993, unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate. He is currently an attorney for Washington, DC law firm Kirkland and Ellis.

Barr wrote in a May 2017 op-ed that Trump was right to fire FBI Director James Comey, asserting that the former director “crossed a line” in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

He also told the New York Times that there was justification for further investigation of Clinton’s role in approving the Uranium One sale to the Russians.

“To the extent it is not pursuing these matters, the department is abdicating its responsibility,” he was quoted in a November 14, 2017 article.

Barr is 68 y.o.

game theory to find leakers or control the narrative is my guess. DJT routinely made leaks in the 90s about his casinos to the media.

1991 - Barr unanimously confirmed.

2018 - Barr narrowly survives protracted Senate conformation battle in a complete media circus where several people come forward to claim they saw him abusing kittens. Roll Eyes

This looks bad to me. Barr and Mueller worked together under Bush 41 and Barr appears to be a swamp creature bigtime.

Rush presented a good deal of background on this guy today. His track record of positions pretty much jived with the Dick Cheney school of thought. So I think Trump knows what he's doing here.

I thought Sessions was a good pick. Well, we now know how that turned out. I'm withholding my judgement on Barr until he has served for awhile. The swamp is large and deep and the shit floats to the top, so we'll see.

Trump has given no reason to doubt him and I am amazed at his stamina. Got to trust him now and I'm sure he knows how much is riding on his AG selection.

So I logged in to an online game I enjoy and the first thing I see in the global chat is some statement about how “The alt-right players are having a bad weekend with the news about Trump.” So, I went ahead and asked what news. “He’s been implicated in at least two felonies with more to come.”
