What do we know about these guys
The advisers include academics and former military officers with expertise on the Middle East and energy issues.
Mr Trump told the Washington Post that he would name more advisers in the coming days.

Mr Trump named retired Lt Gen Keith Kellogg, Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, Walid Phares and retired Gen Joseph Schmitz..
The team is led by Republican Senator Jeff Sessions.
Gen Joseph Schmitz resigned from the military in 2005 amid accusations of misconduct. However, Mr Schmitz was never charged with wrongdoing.
Another adviser, Walid Phares, was criticised when he was named as part of Mr Romney's foreign policy team in 2011.
Muslim advocacy groups took issue with Mr Phares's close ties to right-wing Christian militia groups during the Lebanese civil war.
He is an outspoken critic of Sharia, or Islamic religious law, and has appeared on Fox News and other conservative media outlets as an expert on the Middle East.

Checked.

Another adviser, Walid Phares, was criticised when he was named as part of Mr Romney's foreign policy team in 2011.
Muslim advocacy groups took issue with Mr Phares's close ties to right-wing Christian militia groups during the Lebanese civil war.

Sessions is the leading neo cohen cuck

http://www.ontheissues.org/International/Jeff_Sessions_War_+_Peace.htm
Sessions and Figures disagree almost totally on the record of President Bush. Sessions supports Bush’s tax cuts and the Iraq invasion, while Figures deplores an administration that plunged the nation’s surplus into the red and sent troops to war on erroneous claims.
On the Iraq war, Sessions said he “could not be more proud and pleased with the success of the surge and the progress in the last two years.”
“I think if we can continue this progress in Iraq and it emerges as a strong and decent country that’s independent and stable, it would be a very positive development for the Middle East,“ said Sessions, who has visited U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and neighboring countries multiple times as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Figures said she was not in a position to visit Iraq or Afghanistan. ”I was against the war from the beginning,“ she said. She said no weapons of mass destruction were found. ”Iraq was not responsible for 9/11,“ she said.

they seem less worse than Ted Cruz's team: @lostmypassword

But it looks like the official telephone line between Trump and the Military-Industrial Complex. You can't just ignore these people, you have to be in contact with them.

Jeff Sessions is the chairman of that committee anyway.

You think that's going to change Trump's mind about his conclusion that going to war with Iraq and toppling the regime was a huge mistake as he has said multiple times?

We're not worried about the last war. Luckily, we know Trump will have the ability to ignore and oppose them at nearly Ron Paul levels.

For Trump to make the best deal by building up America's shale industry and becoming energy independent.

lol, not possible when it requires oil at $60/bbl+ to be profitable and the market is already being flooded with oil which is only going to get worse when Iran and Venezuela rejoin the world market, which is coming quickly

What are you talking about? And that is the dumbest thing ever until the oil price is high.
