The Chumph Selects Another KKK For Cabinet

Another Chumph KKK type on the cabinet…

Rep. Ryan Zinke (Facebook)

Another Trump Pick – Another White Supremacist

Trump’s pick for Interior secretary has links to neo-Confederate group that inspired Dylann Roof

Donald Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Interior has gotten donations from white supremacists and endorsed them in political races.

Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT), like chief of staff Steve Bannon, brings troubling ties to organized hate groups to the Republican president-elect’s inner circle, reported Fusion.

Zinke made news during his 2014 election campaign when he accepted a $500 donation from Earl Holt, head of the Council of Conservative Citizens, whose writings about “brutal black on white murders” inspired Dylann Roof, who gunned down nine black worshipers the following year in a Charleston, South Carolina, church.

A spokeswoman for Zinke later said the congressman would donate that contribution to a fund for the victims’ families.

The website also reported he co-sponsored legislation to designate English as the official language in the U.S., and he discussed the bill in an interview with the anti-immigrant ProEnglish organization, which has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Zinke endorsed a Montana statehouse candidate who was active in a white nationalist group as a student at Liberty University and has extensive ties to European right-wing extremists.

Taylor Rose, the former vice president of the Youth for Western Civilization, lost his election race, but he boasted that Zinke’s support — along with the backing of a couple of other Republicans — made him a mainstream candidate despite his racist writings, which were promoted by the Council of Conservative Citizens.

Rose’s campaign website claims he managed U.S. Sen. Steve Daines’ (R-MT) “campaign in the Northwest,” and he also claims he worked for state Sen. Jennifer Fielder, the vice-chair of the Montana Republican Party and CEO of the Koch-linked American Lands Council.

Greg Gianforte, who lost his Republican gubernatorial race, gave Rose $170 in campaign contributions, and he got the same amount from GOP state Sen. Mark Blasdel.

Uncle Ben Get His Payoff

Ben Carson, who knows about as much about housing and urban development as a outhouse – now has the job to derail fair housing in the US. Loyal Lawn Jockey to the end, Uncle Ben describes fair housing as “Communism”. Utterly unqualified, Uncle Ben has never held any sort of office, has no background or training in the field, Just another Uncle Tom on his knees sucking the KKK’s man parts.

Donald Trump Taps Ben Carson To Lead Housing & Urban Development

Carson has never held public office.

President-elect Donald Trump is nominating Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has never held public office, as his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

In a statement released Monday, Trump called Carson a “distinguished national leader” with a “brilliant mind.”

Carson, who ran against Trump in the 2016 Republican primary, told Fox News last month that he was considering the position. This was a shift from his earlier assertion that he wasn’t qualified for a Cabinet position.

Trump’s choice to nominate Carson is just the latest confirmation that he’s prioritizing loyalty over government experience. One of the president-elect’s first hirings was Steve Bannon, a former Breitbart executive with ties to white nationalists. Bannon was a close adviser to Trump during the campaign.

He is also tapping a billionaire former coal mine owner to be Commerce Secretary and Hollywood financier for Treasury Secretary.

As HUD chief, Carson will be tasked with setting housing policies for the Trump Administration, including access to affordable housing and community development. Carson’s comments on certain anti-discrimination policies ― he has called one plan a “mandated social-engineering scheme” ― is likely to concern some fair housing advocates.

“These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,” Carson said in a Washington Times piece last year. “There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.”

As the Daily Beast points out, as HUD Secretary, “Carson would, in part, be the very person entrusted to get it right.”

Carson not interested in serving in Trump administration

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has told President-elect Donald Trumpthat he isn’t interested in serving as secretary of Health and Human Services, a Carson ally confirmed to The Hill on Tuesday.
Business manager and close friend Armstrong Williams said Carson won’t join the incoming Trump administration and would only serve as an unofficial adviser.
Circa on Tuesday reported that Carson had been offered the position, citing Williams. But Williams told The Hill that no specific offer had been made.
“Dr. Carson was never offered a specific position, but everything was open to him,” Williams told The Hill in a phone call.
“Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience, he’s never run a federal agency. The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency.”
The renowned neurosurgeon was one of Trump’s first primary opponents to jump on board his campaign. He was viewed as one of the likely picks to lead the agency that will work to roll back ObamaCare in the new administration.
Reports also pegged him as a candidate for secretary of Education.
Earlier this month, Trump described Carson as a “brilliant physician” and said he hoped Carson “will be very much involved with my administration.”
But Williams said Carson would only advise the president-elect unofficially.
Carson has been looking for ways to be influential outside of government, including his My Faith Votes, a group that looks to motivate Christian voters.
