His first selection was wise on many levels, for the grassroots, the political scene, and even the media: Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. The junior US Senator from Alabama has worked tirelessly to protect the American worker from damaging immigration levels. He supports traditional--read, based on truth and reality--values, from marriage to life to family, to individual liberty.
But he is not a wacky liberal-tarian. He will protect our rights by enforcing our nation's laws, particularly along the border.
Trump's potential picks for Secretary of State, for senior staff advisers, and other cabinet positions indicate an excellence for precision and skill, rather than pure political posturing.
His selection for Department of Education is stunning and brilliant on many levels.
|Betsy DeVos wth husband Richard|
Betsy DeVos is a well-known conservative Christian philanthropist, entreprenuer, and activist. She married into the DeVos family by her husband Richard Jr. He ran for Governor in 2006, and despite his failure, he helped pave the way for Republican victories statewide, which have endured to this day.
How does all of this tie in with Mrs. DeVos?
She served as chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party.
She is one of the biggest supporters--financially as well as morally--for school choice, charter schools, vouchers.
The teachers unions hate this woman. That should be an indication of what a great pick she is.
She is a well-connected socialite who cares about the "social issues" which so enrage the Republican Establishment and the Democratic Party as a whole.
Her husband and his foundation helped transform Michigan from a forced unionism state to a right-to-work state. This free-market policy is widely and wildly popular, even among laborers and labor leaders. The protection of workplace fairness and equity has improved the business climate in Michigan, brought in more jobs and opportunity.
The reform has broken the power of Big Labor in the automotive capital of the United States. Now it's a pink state going ruby red. And the head of federal education policy is a Ruby Red Republican who loves school choice, who is connected to the national movement to expand education opportunity. And she's married to the scion who helped crush the corrosive, corrupting influence of Big Labor.
Michigan was a state that eluded Republicans for decades. The DeVos couple helped edge the seat back into Republican hands, and their expanded political might will ensure that Michigan is solidly red in 2020.
The liberal media will never talk about these connections, but I am surprised that conservative news outlets have not pointed out the smooth moral and political acumen of the DeVos pick. Trump will ensure that Michigan keeps going red, all while expanding school choice in all parts of America, especially inner-city wastelands like Detroit.
Imagine it! Betsy DeVos can tap the donors and grassroots of the Michigan Republican Party for all kinds of help, too!
What can I say? The press is making too little of the widespread Trump-tastic brilliance of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education!
