Why anti-nepotism law might
not apply to Kushner appointment

New York Post, by Daniel Halper and Mark Moore

Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who played a critical behind-the-scenes role in the presidential campaign, will take a similar position in the White House as a senior adviser, it was announced Monday. “It is an honor to serve our country,” Kushner said in a statement. “I am energized by the shared passion of the president-elect and the American people and I am humbled by the opportunity to join this very talented team.”Kushner immediately disclosed plans to sell most of his New York holdings, all his foreign holdings, his stake in the family real-estate business and his ownership of the weekly New

Was it nepotism when Bobby Kennedy as Attorney General?

Trump´s picks indicate at least one thing,he put a lot of value on trust.He doesn´t want leakers and backstabbers in his admin.It looks like Tillerson may be in for a rough ride getting confirmed more so than Sessions,I think. He did deals with Iran while they were under sanctions through an arm of Exxon. Funny how they´ll complain about an oii deal but no problem with Obama giving Iran enough Uranium to blow up the world.

I might interject that the whole da*n Government is filled with people whose relatives got them an ´in´ - I was there and I am aware - they just are not supposed to work in positions where they can influence each other- not only relatives- but friends, friend´s children - and so forth. `Certain regs are just made to be broken. Is pork barrel legislation which helps a relative any better? Pelosi was a queen at that task.

Right, #5! Pelosi´s hubby got the no bid contract to sell Post Office properties which will or has netted him a mere $4 billion bucks just to sweeten the pie. All this and much, much more has made this criminal the richest cretin and crook in DC!

We shouldn´t forget that while Horn Dog Bill was president he put the beast in charge of writing law with hillarycare.

Trump can have any personal adviser or assistant he wants.

The law is 5 U.S. Code § 3110, so you can look it up. Kushner would be serving as a Presidential "senior adviser", thus would not be working for "an Executive agency" but for the President directly. He would also forgo a salary...which begs the question whether he would be on the Federal payroll. If not, this is all moot.

President Barack Obama will leave office on Jan. 20 with negative reviews from most members of the U.S. military. More than half the troops in a new poll had an unfavorable opinion of Obama´s leadership of the military for the past eight years, and about 36 percent said they approved of his performance as commander in chief, according to the latest survey by the Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.

A man identified as a mentally disturbed Army veteran with voices in his head urging him to join ISIS opened fire inside the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., airport Friday, killing five and injuring eight others in a scene of total chaos.“At first, we thought it was firecrackers,” witness Mark Lea, 53, told MSNBC of the afternoon attack at the busy Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. “Everyone started screaming and running.” The lone gunman, identified as 26-year-old Esteban Santiago, reloaded his weapon twice as he sprayed bullets near the baggage-claim carousels in Terminal 2’s lower level at around 1 p.m.

Email Headache Returns: New Clinton messages

The election’s over – but Hillary Clinton’s emails are still coming to light. And they help illustrate why the FBI declared she was “extremely careless” with the information flowing across her secret server. A new batch of messages released by the State Department on Tuesday shows the former secretary of state and her team routinely shared her upcoming schedules, talking points and sensitive items – such as her iPad password – via the homebrewed system. Other newly revealed emails, which were posted as the result of litigation, show Clinton’s top advisers griping about her during her time as secretary of State; an

It’s been a roller coaster year for Fox News. If you have been reading TVNewser at all this year, you know why. But all of the off-camera controversies never negatively impact viewership. In fact, celebrating its 20th year on cable, Fox News finished 2016 as the most-watched basic cable network in prime time and total day, a first for the network.“As we close out our 20th year, Fox News continues to redefine television news and break ratings records, proving it is indeed the most watched and most trusted television news source in the country,”

   

 

  


 
‘Abandoned’ in New Jersey, Chris Christie
Returns to a Changed Landscape
New York Times, by KATE ZERNIKE and PATRICK McGEEHAN    Original Article
Posted By: Honeybadger- 12/27/2016 4:27:17 PM     Post Reply
Chris Christie’s job approval is at a career low. Nearly three-quarters of New Jersey voters, and half his fellow Republicans, said in a recent poll that he should have been a defendant in the trial over the George Washington Bridge lane closings, in which two of his former aides were convicted last month. And in a stinging turnabout, Bill Stepien, the campaign manager whom Mr. Christie dismissed in the so-called Bridgegate scandal, is expected to become Donald J. Trump’s White House political director, while Mr. Christie was fired as transition chief and shut out of jobs in Mr. Trump’s administration, despite having

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ´Hillary lover´ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect. Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars. She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ´broke her heart´ as Streep labelled it the year´s most stunning performance. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he had not seen Streep´s speech or the Golden Globes coverage. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I

She is among the most famous and easily recognized women in the world, but first lady Michelle Obama feels "invisible" when she steps off her official stage, according to her best friend and ally in the White House. And the reason is a remarkable one considering that she and her husband, President Obama, are America´s first African-American presidential couple. According to top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama is invisible because she is black. In her new book about the importance of black mothers in America and how they walk a tightrope in society, White House correspondent April Ryan revealed that Jarrett

The Gold Star father who blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic convention this summer is returning to the national stage this week, firing off a letter demanding the Senate reject Sen. Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said any Republican celebrating Russia’s hacking into the 2016 presidential election were “making a huge mistake” and described them as a “political hack.” Graham said, “To my Republican friends who are gleeful, you’re making a huge mistake. When when Wikileaks released information during the Bush years about the Iraq War that was embarrassing to the administration, that put our troops at risk most Democrats condemned it, some celebrated it. Most Republicans are condemning what Russia did and to those who are gleeful it you’re a political hack. You’re not a

One Silicon Valley executive had a few choice words to describe Americans living in the heart of the nation, and they were not flattering. Melinda Byerley, MBA and founder of Timeshare CMO, a Silicon Valley-based tech start-up, tweeted out Saturday afternoon describing what middle America could do to “get more jobs in their area.” Byerley says that the first thing those in middle America need to realize is that “no educated person wants to live in a sh**hole with stupid people.” Particularly, in a “sh**hole” filled with people who are “violent, racist, and/or misogynistic.” In Byerley’s opinion, “big corporations,” do
