Trumped Kitchen Cabinet….More Jesuits, Environmental Destructionists and Banksters! Gee, What a Surprise.

trump (v.2) Look up trump at Dictionary.com“fabricate, devise,” 1690s, from trump “deceive, cheat” (1510s), from Middle English trumpen (late 14c.), from Old French tromper “to deceive,” of uncertain origin. Apparently from se tromper de “to mock,” from Old French tromper “to blow a trumpet.” Brachet explains this as “to play the horn, alluding to quacks and mountebanks, who attracted the public by blowing a horn, and then cheated them into buying ….”

The Hindley Old French dictionary has baillier la trompe “blow the trumpet” as “act the fool,” and Donkin connects it rather to trombe “waterspout,” on the notion of turning (someone) around. Connection with triumph also has been proposed. Related: Trumped; trumping. Trumped up “false, concocted” first recorded 1728.trump (n.1)

Mike Pence’s Relationship with the Catholic Church

Later, in 2011, he advocated shutting down the federal government in order to defund Planned Parenthood, a rallying cry still common among some conservative lawmakers.

According to an Indy Star profile of him, Pence was born and raised a Catholic, an upbringing where attending Mass and serving as altar boy was an important part of his life. Sometime during college, he began attending a non-denominational church, where he met his future wife. He now describes himself as, “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican,” in that order, and he’s also called himself, “a born-again, evangelical Catholic,” a phrase met with consternation by some on social media.

Who Is Steve Bannon – 13 Facts About Donald Trump’s Chief Strategist

Here’s why white supremacist groups love Stephen Bannon

“Fear is a good thing. Fear is going to lead you to take action”

“These women cut to the heart of the progressive narrative. That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England. That drives the left insane, and that’s why they hate these women.”

Mr. Bannon made a movie in 2012 about the Occupy Wall Street protests. He told an interviewer: “After making the Occupy movie, when you finish watching the film, you want to take a hot shower. You want to go home and shower because you’ve just spent an hour and 15 minutes with the greasiest, dirtiest people you will ever see.”

• “I think anger is a good thing,” he told a gathering of conservatives in Washington in 2013, according to a profile in The Atlantic. “This country is in a crisis. And if you’re fighting to save this country, if you’re fighting to take this country back, it’s not going to be sunshine and patriots. It’s going to be people who want to fight.”

We call ourselves ‘the Fight Club.’ You don’t come to us for warm and fuzzy,” Mr. Bannon told The Washington Post this year. “We think of ourselves as virulently anti-establishment, particularly ‘anti-’ the permanent political class. We say Paul Ryan was grown in a petri dish at the Heritage Foundation.”

Change??? How about military police state

After leaving the Navy, Bannon earned a master’s degree in national security studies at Georgetown University and then went on to Harvard Business School before landing an investment banking job at Goldman Sachs‘ New York offices.

“The camaraderie was amazing. It was like being in the Navy, in the wardroom of a ship,” he told Bloomberg.

After leaving that bank in 1990, he started Bannon & Co., a boutique investment bank specializing in media.

GOP Chairman Reince Priebus; Chief of Staff

Priebus has worked with Archbishop Timothy Dolan, the Catholic Archbishop of New York, to help change both the Republican party and the face of the Church to focus on more serious topics such as abortion, pre-marital sex, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, birth control, stem cells and the ordination of women.

In reaction to Trump’s 2005 remarks about women, Priebus stated “No women should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever.”

Myron Ebell serves as the Director of Global Warming and International Environmental Policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).[2] He is also the chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, a coalition built to “question global warming alarmism.” In these positions, he has taken a central role in promoting climate change denial, providing the press and politicians with material through personal contacts, press conferences and congressional hearings.[1][6]

In September 2016, Ebell was appointed by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to lead his transition team for the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).[7] Ebell, known as a “climate change denier[1][3][4][5] and “climate contrarian“,[2] is not a scientist. Ebell has been a critic of the Endangered Species Act, saying that it unfairly infringes on land owner’s property rights, as well as going against the protection of rare species by encouraging land-owners to make their property uninhabitable for such species to escape regulation

In 1996, he became a staff member of Senator Malcolm Wallop‘s newly founded Frontiers of Freedom Institute,[13] which promoted property rights and criticised environmental regulations such as the Endangered Species Act.[14]

In 1998 Ebell was one of a dozen public relations experts and think-tank operatives, who produced what they called their “Global Climate Science Communications” plan.[15] At this stage ExxonMobil began funding the Frontiers of Freedom Institute to implement their message strategy on global warming, and when Ebell joined the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) in 1999, it too gained ExxonMobil funding.

The tobacco company Philip Morris USA hired Ebell in the 1990s as Policy Director
In 2006, Ebell wrote an article in Forbes titled “Love Global Warming”.

Letter to Pope Francis by Ebell

It has been reported that Vatican officials in the global warming debate want to make sure they do not put the Roman Catholic Church on the wrong side of science, as in the condemnation of Galileo in 1633 for believing that the Earth revolved around the Sun.  Laudato Si’ fails to get the science right (see paragrahps 2026), and although the Vatican can no longer prosecute heretics, Francis has no hesitation condemning those who oppose the alleged global warming consensus (see, for example, paragraph 54).

The encyclical is a diatribe against modern industrial civilization.  In this, it should be compared to the 1864 encyclical of Pius IX, Quanta cura, and its attached Syllabus of Errors, which constitute a much more impressive diatribe against modern intellectual culture.  Francis believes the industrialized economies are wrecking God’s creation by digging far too much stuff (coal, oil, natural gas) up.  The current level of resource consumption is exhausting and polluting the Earth.

On the other hand, he thinks that the wealthy industrialized countries are doing far too little to help the poor in the unindustrialized Third World.  Paragraphs 48-52 discuss the ills caused by global inequality.  But Francis does not emphasize the need for the rich to share their wealth with the poor.  That is because Francis’s thinking on these issues, as he makes clear in paragraphs 10-12, is based on the teachings of Saint Francis of Assisi (1181-1226).  It isn’t until paragraph 82 that the Pope mentions the name of Jesus.

Secretary of State

Whether Mr. Trump picks an ideologue or a seasoned foreign policy hand from past Republican administrations, his challenge will be that the State Department is the centerpiece of the post-1945 experiment of alliance-building and globalism, which Mr. Trump said he would dismantle.

Victoria A. Lipnic Equal Employment Opportunity commissioner and work force policy counsel to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce

Jeff Miller Retired chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee

Homeland Security Secretary

The hodgepodge agency, formed after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has one key role in the Trump administration: guarding the United States’ borders. If Mr. Trump makes good on his promises of widespread deportations and building walls, this secretary will have to carry them out.

Brennan, and how to proceed if the president-elect orders a resumption of harsh interrogation tactics — which critics have described as torture — for terrorism suspects.

Michael T. Flynn Former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency

Peter Hoekstra Former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee

Mike Rogers Former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee

Frances Townsend Former homeland security adviser under George W. Bush
