We recently described one possible scenario of how the President elect Trump could truly unleash the police state on the American people. We just learned that our fears may be spot on.
But first, let’s take a look at some of the rumored appointees that are swirling around as possible Cabinet level members serving the Trump presidency:
Here is a full list of possible contenders
Secretary of State
Secretary of the Treasury
Secretary of Defense
Secretary of the Interior
Secretary of Agriculture
Secretary of Commerce
Secretary of Health and Human Services
Secretary of Energy
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Secretary of Homeland Security
National Security Adviser
As you can see the list of possibilities is mind blowing. While there are some respectable people on the above list I have heard it said my entire life – “one bad apple can spoil the apple cart” or “guilty by association” Anyone else ever hear these sayings? Anyone else ever experience the reality of these sayings?
We learned this morning there may be a late entry to the possible “contenders” list. Enter Jose Rodriguez, former head of CIA National Clandestine Service (NCS). Mr. Rodriguez would be a great fit in light of our recent article discussing the removal of illegal aliens and a federal police force.
Jose Rodriguez, one of the masterminds behind the infamous George W. Bush torture and retention program, may be selected by the new administration to run the CIA, according to an influential law firm where Trump’s major ally serves as a senior adviser.
The prediction that Jose Rodriguez, a career intelligence officer and former head of CIA National Clandestine Service (NCS), may lead the CIA comes in a post-election memo published by Dentons, a multinational law and lobbying firm. The company is involved in delivering legal advice to the Trump campaign, according to the Intercept. Source
Mr. Rodriguez would provide great cover for President Trump. Trump would be seen as “inclusive” and this choice would be a great spokesman as the illegal aliens are being rounded up and deported. There is only one problem. What methods of detainment would Mr. Rodriguez incorporate into his interrogations? Well, according to his track record the same interrogation techniques the Nazi’s used during WWII. The same techniques that he himself used while head of the CIA – NCS.
Rodriguez, who in 2004 was appointed chief of the NCS to oversee all human intelligence gathering by US agencies, defended the CIA practices, telling the New Yorker in a 2012 interview that they “fell well short of what is torture.”
He argued that the methods previously employed by Nazi and the Japanese secret services during WWII “had the legal backing, but we had no moral qualms about doing this.” Torture and harsh treatment helped prevent “another 9/11” and gather “valuable intelligence,” the top CIA officer insisted in the interview.
In 2005, after the “enhanced interrogation,” a euphemism for torture, was revealed by the media, Rodriguez played a key role in discarding evidence, destroying 92 tapes showing the waterboarding of suspect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who is reported to have been waterboarded 183 times. Source
With the track record of Wall Street and Washington DC is it any wonder I am little cynical of these of choices? Anyone that follows along should be skeptical as well. Some of the people listed above should be in prison, under investigation and should never, ever be allowed anywhere near a position in the federal government much less on the top team of the President. We have seen and experienced enough of their criminal activity. The people of this country voted for an “outsider”. Trump is aligning himself with some of the most criminal people on Wall Street and in Washington DC. Will Trump prove to be the ultimate trojan horse insider? If the above list is any indication, it appears we are in for, not just more of the same, but more of the same on steroids.
