The major news this week is Sarah Palin apparently not being considered for a cabinet post. Actress, Model Nicole Gratson Details Anti-Trump Harassment on Mama Grizzly Radio, plus a run of Palin family posts.
I got into a Twitter war with three cultists this week on my personal account over this. During an interview with Megyn Kelly, Kellyanne Conway told the Fox News anchor she had not seen Sarah Palin among those being considered for a cabinet post, but that did not mean she wasn’t being considered. The three cultists falsely accused the President-Elect of promising her a position before the election (which is illegal to do), of lying, and not giving her what they felt she is entitled to. President-Elect Trump sung Palin’s praises on Mama Grizzly Radio and said he would like for her to have a role in his administration. He did not promise her a specific job. In a CNN interview, she spoke of wanting to be Secretary of Energy so she could shut the agency down. The reportage on her being considered was for Interior. What if the President-Elect does not share her vision of shutting down the Department of Energy, but instead wants to reform it?
Cabinet members serve at the pleasure of POTUS. No one is entitled to a cabinet post. Also, the three cultists conveniently forget that these are “job / country first” positions, which is absolutely not compatible with Palin’s “family first” mentality as expressed by her many times over the years, as recently as November 22.
Kellyanne Conway, who herself was offered a position is considering whether to accept it, because of her family obligations. From the transcript of the interview:
KELLY: What about you, Kellyanne. Have you been offered a cabinet post?
CONWAY: He has offered me a position. Very early on. In fact, the election night or the wee hours of Wednesday, he did. And —
KELLY: Is it a senior position?
CONWAY: It is. And I am very humbled by that. I think that it’s everybody’s dream to serve their nation at the highest level if they can. But I have four small children and I need to balance all types of personal and professional considerations. But I’m deciding where I am best for this president-elect and this vice president-elect in due course. But there are many qualified men and women who can serve him at the highest levels.
We see very clearly from the foregoing that these jobs are absolutely incompatible with a “family first” lifestyle. The hard reality is, Sarah Palin does not qualify for a cabinet post if she insists on “family first.” Each time she went on the stump during the primaries, she had to run back to Alaska for family crises. Sorry, a cabinet position cannot and does not operate this way. While I’ve supported Sarah Palin for over eight years, the national interest comes first. If she is not ready and able to give the job her 100% dedication and focus – that is job and country first – I can’t see her getting a cabinet post under those circumstances. Perhaps she can serve in a less mission-critical role such as an adviser, and Conway’s segue suggested that could be Palin’s role.
This is not to knock or disparage Sarah Palin. Having been a VP candidate, governor of Alaska, an oil and gas regulator, Mayor and City Councilwoman for Wasilla, she is keenly aware of what these jobs demand. She’s written about it in Going Rogue. She also has a very strong objective ego, which quite frankly flies straight over the heads of a huge plurality of her supporters. The problem is not Palin or her family. It’s so-called supporters who should know better. It’s this behavior that makes the Palin community reviled as a bunch of crazy cultists. Fortunately, the entire community is not like this and the adults in the room backed me up on Twitter.

Sarah Palin: Trump Movement Began with the GOP Establishment’s ‘Shocking Betrayals’ of Tea Party Voters
During a nearly 48-minute interview on Breitbart News Daily, Sarah Palin said the Trump Movement Began with the GOP Establishment’s ‘shocking betrayals’ of Tea Party voters.
“I do think a lot of the Trump movement started in the Tea Party days, when enough people were saying ‘enough,’” Palin said. “But see, the Establishment wouldn’t listen, and they got worse since the Tea Party days. They got worse with shocking betrayals, and they literally doubled down on debt. They divided Americans. People started seeing, since the Tea Party days, how corruption in our government affects their lives. So they got worse, and they got cocky, but they also got caught, and we got stronger. ‘Bigly,’ as Trump would say — bigly stronger in these years since, and our grumbles, they grew into rumbles as we didn’t divert our eyes from seeing the Naked Emperor. Now, during the Trump movement, enough people said ‘enough.’”
Sarah Palin not being considered for any Trump cabinet positions
Sarah Palin’s isn’t in the running for a cabinet job in the Trump administration — at least as far as the senior adviser to his transition team is aware.“I know that they’re close and that she’s been a great, loyal friend and adviser to him throughout the campaign, but I haven’t seen her as part of the cabinet mix,” Kellyanne Conway told Fox News’ “The Kelly File” on Monday night.
KELLY: What about Sarah Palin. Donald Trump had suggested she would be in his cabinet if he won. Is she going to be in?
CONWAY: I haven’t seen her. I know that they are close. And that she’s been a great loyal friend and advisor to him throughout the campaign. But I haven’t seen her as part of the cabinet mix. But that doesn’t mean that she’s not.

Florence Henderson’s passing last night was sad news. As The Brady Bunch’s matriarch, many of us truly enjoyed her wit, spunk and talent on tv.
We were fortunate to get to know “Carol Brady” while Florence and Bristol worked together during Bristol’s first season on Dancing With The Stars. What a beautiful person whose heart was as big as her home state of Texas.
Prayers for her loved ones. Florence will always be remembered for making us happier people.

Thanksgiving 2016 – could we be more blessed than we are with America’s opportunity and optimism to recapture her exceptionalism? Be thankful!
Word of caution to our competent, exciting, “for-such-a-time-as-this” new President who will let the people make America great again: in draining the swamp one must not create a new swamp.
Opponents who did everything in their power to destroy the people’s Trump Movement, now scrambling to hop aboard, can allow us to be even more thankful once we hear how they would keep our train barreling toward new, fresh, ethical, non-political grounds to make America great again. How will they serve the mission – once vigorously opposed – well?
What changed between the campaign they overtly or covertly sought to decimate, and today’s transition team assembly? Voters believe our winning candidate is the same man, with the same plans, same character… they did not like any of it then, so we must ask: have you changed? Or has he?
Those few of us who’ve served in office, having experienced this political phenomenon watching chameleons in self-preservation mode do their thing, learned lots of lessons. Take it from us. Heaven forbid the same lessons be re-learned in this higher office as a result of sidling-up politicos who’d get President-elect Trump off-message. There just isn’t time. And we can’t take more betrayal.
Thank God, literally, we’ll have a leader strong enough to withstand the wiles inherent in government. And thank God our eyes are open to threats against the promised drained swamp.
As Trump discerningly creates his political circle, be vigilant so the new team succeeds for we the people. Be courageous in staying ahead of threats sensed, and call them out. That’s our job, for such a time as this.
