While I am a bit skeptical about our source, it is fair to say that Trump would be very much like Bush when it comes to foreign policy: totally dependent on his advisers.
Since Pence is no Cheney it's going to be easy to get Trump to hand over pretty much all military control to his defense secretary, so whoever that is will tell you everything you need to know.

Trump will probably want to keep the State Department close to invite tons of foreign dignitaries for photo-ops and later park them at his hotels at taxpayer expense.


Your mention of defense secretary reminded me of our current defense secretary, Ashton Carter, which in turn reminded me of Robert McNamara's Whiz Kids during the Vietnam War:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whiz_Kids ... of_Defense)

Defense Secretary Carter has an incredible resume- Graduated summa cum laude with a double major in physics and medieval history at Yale, a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, a doctorate in theoretical physics, professor of science and international affairs at Harvard, etc. And yet, he seems totally naïve. Friggin' clueless.
On the lunatic fringe of the radical center.

Trump iz Wile E. Kiyoty falling.

In discussionz over the last 8 yirz with rite-wingerz, I hav often equated their arguments with the senez in the Road Runner cartoonz in wich Wile E. Kiyoty (Coyote? ye, that looks normal.) iz running after the bird in thin air, only continuing horizontal kuz he iznt aware uv the lack uv support under hiz feet.

I woud explain why their lojik wuz faulty and, for a wile, I expected them to consede the point and we woud progress to more thotful debates. For a wile - eventually I realized they didnt ascribe to the notion that lojik and facts are important.

The entire Republican party, from the top offise holderz down to the faithful pre-voting aje children uv so-called 'conservativ' voterz went off the cliff 8 yirz ago, if not earlier. In fact, you coud envision them az millionz uv Wile E. Coyotez running strate toward the ej and, bekuz there are millionz, it took the entire time between the anti-Clinton outraje uv the mid 90z till the election uv Obama in 2008 till the entire mass wuz airborn.

So now here we are in 2016 and they are beginning to realize that they are in for a long drop. Agen, not all uv them all at wunz, but all the wunz that hav solidly rebuked Trump, such az Colin Powell and Mitt Romney, are feeling the butterfyz in the stumik effect uv freefalling. They no the party iz going down, and wunder how hard the landing will be.

Donald trump either lied to the republicans or broke the law (exclusive)

odds are a politician is going to be a psychopath - but the thing that is most frustrating is their pathologic lying . why can't someone who wants to fight for the real minority ; be honest and intelligent ? guess they are mutually exclusive :-(

original rant I said -fight for - did not say help . in hindsight fight is wrong idea to .
there is the cliché - enemy of my enemy is my friend --- is wrong to ...
correct idea is - we have the same enemies .

Kwame Kilpatrick would be a better comparison to trump than hitler . hitler had passion .
kk and dt are just pimps .

getting back to the word *** help *** - people rarely want to * help * people they have nothing in common with - they might pretend .
the medical system / psychiatry is an excellent example of this fact . why help the enemy , when you can suck them dry - financially , physically , emotionally . :burn:

Soooo.....does this mean :

a) The real minority are unable to help themselves?

b) Members of the real minority have nothing in common with other members of the real minority?

c) The real minority doesn't actually exist and that's why you never see them helping each other?

Dilbert creator Scott Adams explains: "Why I Switched My Endorsement from Clinton to Trump":

Scott Adams wrote:If you are not trained in persuasion, Trump look scary. If you understand pacing and leading, you might see him as the safest candidate who has ever gotten this close to the presidency. That’s how I see him.

So when Clinton supporters ask me how I could support a “fascist,” the answer is that he isn’t one. Clinton’s team, with the help of Godzilla, have effectively persuaded the public to see Trump as scary. The persuasion works because Trump’s “pacing” system is not obvious to the public. They see his “first offers” as evidence of evil. They are not. They are technique.
