Donald Trump names Reince Preibus as his Chief of Staff

November 13, 2016

  Donald Trump, who won election running as an outsider vowing to end Washington corruption, has named Republican establishment insider and head of the Republican National Committee Reince Preibus as his Chief of Staff.

  Here is more:

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as his chief of staff, according to Trump’s campaign.

In choosing Priebus, 44, Trump has tapped a Washington insider who is viewed as broadly acceptable by vast swaths of the Republican Party. Priebus was recommended by House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and will be a bridge between the White House and the Republican-led Congress, as well as the heads of Cabinet agencies.

The choice signals Trump’s willingness to work within the very establishment he assailed on the campaign trail. Priebus, a lawyer and longtime Wisconsin political operative, has been head of the RNC since 2011 and is well liked within Washington after years of forging ties with Republican leaders and lawmakers. He will undoubtedly start to smooth over residual friction from a campaign during which a number of Republicans refused to endorse Trump

  I am not a big fan of Reince Preibus and I wonder how this is going to play with Trump supporters who want to see him take on the establishment, however he does need to have somebody on his staff who knows the inner workings of the party and Washington if he wants to get any of his agenda passed by members of his party who opposed him during the election.

  Some of the #NeverTrump websites and groups are already attacking this decision but in my mind this reeks of sour grapes and these websites and groups are quickly losing credibility in my opinion. At some point you have to admit you lost and move on. At this point I lump these websites and groups in with the Democratic protesters who refuse to accept the outcome of the election, they are just going about it in a different manner.

    Should prove interesting Steve. Maybe that’s why so many working ‘for the gov.’ were crying knowing their going to be fired! And for good reason, they’re working for the Nation’s enemy!

    Problem w/ Move On. org they don’t want to move on they want to move ‘over’: Soros’s “Purple Revolution” brewing for Trump presidency
    George Soros and his Sorosite minions wasted no time in launching their “color revolution” for the United States.
    Ironically, it is the United States that championed Soros’s “color revolutions” in Ukraine (twice), Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Iran, China, and countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Now, thanks to the billionaire hedge fund tycoon, a color revolution is being launched on the streets of the United States.

      I think it is about time for Soros to go away but I think we can count on him being even more involved in trying to take the US down.

      It is already out, Zip, that Soros is teaming up with the Dems to take Trump out….he will not let up…..I do not know if he will be able to do what he wants, but I have to think that he had his hand in Trump not getting the Presidency and that did not work out for him. So, I do not think he gets what he wants all the time. Money cannot buy everything and maybe we have someone looking out for us when it comes to EVIL!

        Yep, I’d like to see Putin help get rid of him – he’s a thorn.
        This is a bit slow you can jump thru it though for the meat.

        Vladimir Putin to George Soros: Thank God we kicked you out of Russia
        … now out of the US and beyond!

        The funny thing is they are teaming up with Wall Street to take out the man who beat the Wall Street candidate!

        And I meant to add they are supposed to be against Wall Street.

    From Breitbart “Bannon and Priebus will continue the effective leadership team they formed during the campaign, working as equal partners to transform the federal government, making it much more efficient, effective and productive,” stated a press release from Trump’s transition team on Sunday. “Bannon and Priebus will also work together with Vice President-elect Mike Pence to help lead the transition process in the run-up to Inauguration Day.”

    Yes Trump is an outsider, but he knows he has to use who ever he can to help him implement his agenda. It is like when a new coach takes over a team. He can’t replace everyone at once. He has to use what he has been given and get everyone believing in his vision for the team.

      Yep, I agree CJ. His plan to get the gears oiled and moving again (take the cogs out of the wheel) will take some time but it sounds like he’s jumping to! If it were Hilly we’d be gearing up for a Russian war instead of what he’s delegating!

        Maybe he will let Putin finish what Russia started in Syria. Aleppo is on the verge of falling to the SAA. A stabilized Syria would go a long way to ending the U.S. involvement in the ME.

        Supposedly Putin has asked Trump for help to have NATO pull back from deployment in Eastern Europe.

        Yes, I’d like to see that happen – get the US troops and hit men (contractors) out of there. Most people don’t realize that the US military has been used to fight the Globalist take over of Countries and has nothing to do w/ keeping America safe – rather the opposite! Watching over poppy fields for the elites – who profit from sales in America!
        I get the jest of the vid – can’t listen to Jones, but the info they share can be beneficial. Putin and Trump can do alot of good – clearing out the cesspool parasites in this Gov. will be a plus! May have to use some of Putin military to do that. (haha, that sounds so unAmerican but it’s really very American!). Both Syria and America will be better off with this usurping group gone.

      Trump has not become successful by picking losers. I think that is what the LEFT is forgetting. They are so quick to start picking apart Trump and his transition team and who he will put in office….I ask all of you, can they do any worse than what we have experienced for almost 8 years?

    Don’t forget Trump needs to fight against the head Democrat weasel Chuck the Schmuck in the Senate. Chuck is a fellow New Yorker and leader of the Gang of 8 – a true globalist. The Senate Republicans are an extreme weak lot and their learer is a fool.

    First up for team Trump is Immigration enforcement. This will require a lot of political capital to be expended by Trump if the Republicans can’t get behind the Trump mandate. Trump needs to nominate a SCJ. What do you think Chuck is going to do?

      We will see how the immigration battle goes but there is going to be stiff resistance from the establishment Republicans.


      • November 14, 2016 8:06 am

        The same social media that allowed Trump to rise to power can be used to keep Trump and the Republican elite in check. Wikileaks, Anonymous, Infowars and the altright reporters all appear willing to turn on either Trump or the Republican elites if what has been promised is not delivered.

        The war has not been won the enemy is not defeated. We are in a very dangerous position right now. The media continues to lie and spread disinformation.

        CJ and Steve, at least we are going to get a bit of a breather, but we cannot let our guard down all the way. Come 2 years from now, we are going to have to vote alot of the traitors out of office….there are ALOT of them. The Dems are very dangerous now, they are not used to this kind of loss. Remember, they were already popping the corks on the bottles on election night…guess they forgot or didn’t care how pissed off Americans were. Now I know that Americans have the fire in their bellies, maybe we can accomplish something.

        No the war is not won but as Lou said we at least will get a breather. However we must not become complacent and we must be vigilant because the left is going to regroup and come at us harder than ever now.

    BOOM! Trump Reveals His Pick for Attorney General… It’s Liberals’ Worst Nightmare YAY!

    ALSO: were police told to ‘stand down’ in OR to allow rioting? A vid of a gal in her car with the ‘vipers’ around her and w/ bats – no cops around at all! I don’t see any news reporting that fact!
    Portland “Protesters” Harassing Woman in Car **ZERO POLICE**

    That’s the product of the ‘kingdom of darkness’ mentality and regime!
    Soros has his minions in there ‘leading’ the madness!

    In TX at least the police are allowed to do their job!

    The mindset has been being set and staged/programmed for such a time as this and the youth raging/raring to explode their undisciplined confusion and anger. A den of snakes waiting to strike!
