When it comes to the national security team Trump is likely to bring with him, some pretty awful names have been leaked, including John Bolton and John Yoo.
And here's what we read from the Daily Caller:
"Like Sessions, former GOP Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers, formerly the chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, appears likely to have influence in the Trump administration. He is being considered for both national security advisor and assistant to the president for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. His former chief of staff, Andy Keiser, is also being considered for the position of deputy national security advisor.
"Two other people listed for national security advisor are retired Army Lt. Gen. Micheal Flynn, who served as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Barack Obama, and Stephen Hadley, who served in the same role under former President George W. Bush. Flynn, Rogers, and Hadley are all hawkish. Flynn has called for the destruction of the Syrian city of Raqqa, Hadley served as deputy national security adviser during the invasion of Iraq and Rogers said in 2014 that ground troops should be deployed to fight the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq."
Well, you can't drain the swamp and also bring these people with you.
You can't criticize recent U.S. foreign policy and then bring its architects on board.
Even Roger Stone seems concerned, tweeting out that Trump didn't defeat Jeb Bush so he could bring on Bush's team.
At the end of today's episode of the Tom Woods Show, Scott Horton gives out some good names for a non-crazy national security team:
It's Veterans Day. Let's push for this team, so we can minimize membership in Veterans of Future Wars.

Be sure to check out the next episode (#60) of Contra Krugman, my other podcast, which will be coming out this weekend. We'll be joined by David Stockman, director of the Office of Management and Budget under Ronald Reagan, and an absolutely great guy who's become a hardcore Austrian since the 1980s. David will talk about the economic ramifications of the Trump victory.
You'll know Trump really wants to drain the swamp if he appoints Stockman as Secretary of the Treasury. You'll know it's business as usual if it's just another bankster.
