President-elect Trump has filled two cabinet positions and we think it’s a good time to put out our own list of ideal cabinet choices.  We aren’t going to hit every position because honestly a lot of these positions are all but pointless.  Energy Secretary…we’re looking at you.


Secretary of State:  Stephen M. Walt.    Walt is a neo-realist, professor at Harvard, and writer for Many of his positions have been echoed by Trump during the campaign.

Secretary of Treasury: Jeb Hensarling  “Economic growth for all, bank bailouts for none.”  Bonus: he’s never worked for Goldman Sachs.

Secretary of Defense: William S. Lind – With 4G warfare exploding all over the world, it would be wise to put the guy who invented the term in charge.

Attorney General: Mike Lee.  This is more of a process of elimination pick.  Rudy and Christie are not good options.  That leaves a lot of scrambling to find a good fit.

Secretary of the Interior:  Harrold G. Hamm.   “President Trump will release America’s pent-up energy potential, get rid of foreign oil, trash punitive regulations, create millions of jobs, and develop our most strategic geopolitical weapon: crude oil.”  Preach, Preacher.

Secretary of Agriculture:  Joel Salatin. “I am a Christian-Libertarian-Capitalist-Environmentalist-Lunatic.”  We need radical new leadership in Agriculture.  That means we need a radical new leader.  Grass fed beef is still crap though, Joel.

Health and Human Services:  Ben Carson.  Tearing down Obamacare is all that matters.   His passion about this is what thrust him into the spotlight to begin with.  Turn him loose on it.

Homeland Security:  Jeff Sessions.   No explanation required.  Roll Tide.
