Extreme Vetting

Peter Thiel has created a secret database called the 'Plum List' to screen and 'fast-track' top talent who have shown loyalty to Trump - and come from OUTSIDE the Beltway

Insiders said the Plum List, which is being run outside of the official Trump transition, will serve as a central database to help wade through the thousands of incoming applications and identify key talent.

Sources said the list is being spearheaded by Thiel, who was appointed to a top spot on Trump's transition team last Friday.

A lot of these headline players being considered are know quantities. But this extreme vetting may speedy up the thousands of lower appointments that need to be made.

How did Mitt Romney get on that list?

Doubt he did.

Flynn as NSA, Sessions as AG and the Lefties are sweating already.

That sounds like really good news to me.

I envision it like this The roll of Trump being played by Kevin Kline.

Or I wish it was this :-)

Trump is a master of the Art of the Deal.

He is fluffing Romney's ego. Or letting the news media do it. He is setting a trap.

He will talk about Secretary of State but will not offer it to him. Instead he will ask him to head the VA. Romney is a great businessman. He supports the vets. He might agree to take on the VA to help the vets as a patriot. Of course if he refuses he will look like a douchenozzle. That is the trap that Trump is setting for him.

Let's see what happens.

This Thiel guy is a thorn in the side of the tech liberal fascists. This country often elects the opposite of the previous prez. Obama had the lowest % of private sector people in his administration. Here's hoping Trump ends up w/ the highest % of business people.

Interesting, if true.

The Donald makes Huck ambassador to Israel with the express intent of moving our embassy to Jerusalem

Huck says nothing is happening until State is set, but it would be a plum pick and a good fit all around. My guess is, the official announcement waits on State, but the deal is done.
