Trump Picks General Mad Dog Mattis as Secretary of Defense
report from dailystormer
note – President-elect Donald Trump picked James Mattis as his secretary of defense. Mattis has said Israel’s settlement project could turn the country into an apartheid state and that the United States pays a price for its support of Israel ! Perhaps the best part about Mattis is that the Jewish and Israeli lobby groups are not a fan of him. If they don’t like him, than that’s a good sign.
Well, if we’re going to have a Jew in charge of our money, at least we’re going to have a mad dog in charge of the Pentagon.
President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis to be secretary of defense, nominating a former senior military officer who led operations across the Middle East to run the Pentagon less than four years after he hung up his uniform, according to people familiar with the decision.
To take the job, Mattis will need Congress to pass new legislation to bypass a federal law that states secretaries of defense must not have been on active duty in the previous seven years. Congress has granted a similar exception just once, when Gen. George C. Marshall was appointed to the job in 1950.
An announcement is likely by early next week, according to the people familiar with the decision. Mattis declined to comment. Spokespersons for Trump’s transition team did not respond to requests for comment.
Mattis, 66, retired as the chief of U.S. Central Command in spring 2013 after serving more than four decades in the Marine Corps. He is known as one of the most influential military leaders of his generation, serving as a strategic thinker while occasionally drawing rebukes for his aggressive talk. Since retiring, he has served as a consultant and as a visiting fellow with the Hoover Institution, a think tank at Stanford University.
Like Trump, Mattis favors a tougher stance against U.S. adversaries abroad, especially Iran. The general, speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in April, said that while security discussions often focus on terrorist groups like the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, the Iranian regime is “the single most enduring threat to stability and peace in the Middle East.”
I don’t really know much about the guy, other than that he’s a pretty standard military guy with no strong political views. Seems to just do war.
Hopefully this means Flynn will get Secretary of State.
note – James Mattis has publicly voiced negative opinions towards Russia and Iran. This is not good. But let’s hope for the best, perhaps trump has had a discussion with Mattis on how the jew controlled obama ADMINISTRATION created isis and putin is now mopping up obama’s mess in syria.
