Most people in the know are quite pleased with Donald Trumps cabinet selections.
There is nothing to be said in a negative manner of his pick, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers, time will tell.
Sarah Palin could have done the job expertly in that she had the experience dealing with Exxon as Governor of Alaska, telling the company if they did not drill on their leases she would sell the to another company willing to do so.

Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of the interior, who could open lands for drilling, is a climate change denier
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is also an ardent opponent regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.
Colonel Allen West met with President-elect Donald Trump’s foreign policy team on Monday, including Vice President-elect Mike Pence, Mike Flynn and KT McFarland.
Allen West rescues a group of so-called experts with his historical knowledge of Islam and the principal battles during the Crusades.
He may not be joining the upcoming administration, though.
After the meeting, West told reporters that he discussed national security issues with the president-elect, but said he was not offered a position.
“I mean they know my reputation very well,” he said.
“I’m just a simple soldier and I’m the third of four generations that served this country going back to my father in World War II, and we still have a relative of ours that is continuing to serve in the Army now.” (Source)

Russia just built and employed icebreakers to control Northern passageways while busily flagging life-sustaining resource-rich undersea acreage, with zero push back from the U.S
In laymen’s terms, The Great Bear seized on America’s weak “uni-party” that controls our government, and watched our politicians go along to get along with Obama’s agenda built on disdain for an “all of the above” energy plan, a nonchalant attitude about bankrupting our government, and overall ignorance about purpose of national borders.
Way to go Democrats. And capitulating Republicans.
See the entire article below.
The uni-party was amply warned by average Americans for eight years. We said we must secure borders – including up North via controlling transportation corridors that Russia wants. I said we must plant the flag to claim our underseas resources, we have to explore, and we must drill, baby.
Despite the ridicule, we kept up the chant until finally ousting shortsighted politicians who heretofore fooled voters into believing they, in self-preservation mode, had our interests at heart.
We knew of which we spoke.
We watched other nations innovate and build infrastructure – and lay claim to the Arctic – whilst our leaders slept. Our pleas for leadership’s great awakening were ignored, or at best, mocked. As more and more land got locked up, we got locked out of opportunity to safely develop God-given natural resources for mankind’s responsible use.
Why do you think Pres. Abe Lincoln’s cabinet purchased Alaska from Russia? Because they were paying attention. Secretary of State William Seward was criticized and shunned for insisting this most northern region’s valuable resources and our strategic location on the globe would someday help secure the Union. But at only two-cents an acre for territory twice as big as Texas, Seward ignored humiliating media slander, confident the Arctic’s holdings fit Lincoln’s agenda to someday reunite the USA. Lincoln’s cabinet trumped Russia with the Alaska purchase.
But where are we today? Instead of shoring up necessities for security in a dangerous world, our government’s priorities wasted time, energy and money we don’t have. Instead of competing to win against The Great Bear, we poked it.
The Left’s suddenly convenient blame game against Russian President Putin has been to deflect from failure. America’s alpha male pack in charge is intimidated by Putin and instead of pulling up their mom jeans to better position us, they pivot to stir up fights for things like a grown man’s “right” to pee in a little girl’s bathroom.
Say what you will about Putin; I say I have respect for our neighbor, for you never have to guess on who’s side he is committed.
Without a doubt the Left’s failure set us back. But we still have the energy supplies, technology and workforce – all we lacked was the political will – so it’s not too late to reposition.
America’s security and sovereignty are at stake. That is why, when the starting gun goes off on January 20, a new race to the top of the world begins. For those of us who want peace and freedom more than anything else on earth, we know how to win it through strength. America can grow her muscle again built on energy and mineral deposits, year-round navigable waterways, the world’s most abundant sustainable fisheries, and so many more offerings of the North, many having been recognized by Lincoln’s team.
Alaska and the Arctic are enormously significant. Fittingly, The Last Frontier’s simple state flag is the literal illustration of where America can look for answers. On a field of blue, Alaska’s stars of gold point to The Great North Star. May new leaders look to it and realize it’s Creator can be our guiding light.
