Maddog Mattis: Retired Marine Corps General James Mattis is Trump’s pick for Defense Secretary. He was key commander during the Iraq invasion—leading the 1 st Marine Division and later overseeing the retaking of Fallujah in 2004. Trump says he’s the closest we have to a General Patton. But last year, according to The Intercept, Gen. Mattis said to global security professionals in Anaheim, Ca. that Iraq was a strategic mistake.

The Supreme court will rule on transgender rights. Justices will be deciding a case of whether students can use their preferred bathrooms. The Justices could have held this issue in a kind of limbo, or holding pattern until another Justice is confirmed on the Court, but instead they have taken up this major social policy issue and national debate. The issue is the Virginia school district’s challenge to the Obama administration‘s guidelines requiring that schools allow transgenered students to use the bathroom which matches their chosen gender. So, how should the Court rule on this one?
