As we reach the end of week one Trump had some run. Lot’s of positives and only two missteps. They were focusing on crowd size at the inauguration and illegal votes in the election. On every thing that mattered he was terrific. Of course the MSM focused on the non matter material.
As reported, Wednesday was eraser day for Obama immigration polices. Here’s how the Washington Times reported it:
“With a couple of strokes of his pen, President Trump wiped out almost all of President Obama’s immigration policies on Wednesday, laying the groundwork for his signature wall along the Mexican border, unleashing immigration agents to enforce the law and punishing “sanctuary cities” that try to defy federal law and thwart his deportation surge”.
On the voter fraud investigation here’s what the time and money spent will find. No major fraud at all. Yes people are registered in multi states, and deceased people are on the rolls. Millions? Yes likely, but they don’t vote twice. The finding will be that the voting systems should be upgraded and changes made when people move or pass away.
Then Democrats will fight back because any attempt to require ID when voting or purge rolls is racist you know.
There you have the outcome before they even start.
Did you hear the recently pardoned Chelsea Manning ripped up Barack Obama? “Manning said the former president compromised too much and left a “vulnerable legacy” with “very few permanent accomplishments.”
Trump tweeted immediately, “Ungrateful TRAITOR Chelsea Manning, who should never have been released from prison, is now calling President Obama a weak leader. Terrible!”
Did you hear this on the MSM? No, you know why? Because it is a negative for Obama.
You likely didn’t hear this either. President Trump has vowed to “load” up the American prison in Cuba “with some bad dudes”. From an Obama defined “disgrace”, to housing more “bad dudes”. Elections have consequences.
Here’s one more on the differences in leadership. Conservatives support Trump’s plan for “extreme vetting” of immigrants of individuals with strong terrorist bases. What do liberals think? Well here’s former Clinton Secretary of State Madeline Albrights reaction:
“I stand ready to register as Muslim” if President Donald Trump institutes any efforts on Muslims. Can you see Mad Dog Mattis or Rex Tillerson ever having a stand like that? Voting matters.
So the meeting with Mexico’s President was cancelled. On Wednesday Mexican officials indicated he was thinking of cancelling because of Trump’s plan to go forward with the wall. Then Trump tweeted “If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting”. So Mexico did. Here’s our prediction:
Trump’s strong economic actions will lead to much MSM hysteria about a trade war and it will even impact the stock market. But Trump is tough and a negotiator and he will not back down. He knows the world needs the U.S. market more than we need them. He will win here and the market will rebound as a trade war that was to be, does not occur.
———————– JUST SAYING ————————-
With the MSM still stuck on Trump’s election fraud he should answer this way. I want this investigation so the Russians can never hack an American election again. Then ask the reporter: Don’t you agree?
So Sanctuary Cities say they will not comply with federal demands. Let’s understand this now. The U.S. law is, if you catch an illegal you must turn them over for deportation. That’s the law. So the Mayors of these cities say we will not do it. Thus they are breaking the law. Why are they heroes for breaking federal law? Answer, because the MSM makes them one. You don’t like the laws, you change them, but the law is the law. What gives anyone the right to choose what laws they follow?
Which goes for the border wall too. Why is it every country can enforce it’s borders but we are wrong to do it? Since France and Germany stopped enforcing border control what has happened? Why do liberals and the MSM think border enforcement is wrong? If you favor controlled legal immigration, over people illegally coming into our country you are a racist. That’s how they think. I think they are lost. Again, they are supporting illegal over lawful.
Ronald Reagan said it best when talking about the Berlin Wall. He said countries build walls to keep their people in. The United States builds walls to control who and how many come in. Liberals and the MSM have lost perspective.
The Republicans promised a public announcement on a replacement for the ACA (Obamacare) in two days. I don’t think they can meet that deadline. This is very complex and I still don’t know how you insure 20 to 30 million people for free and reduce costs. One person ends up with less coverage or increased costs and the MSM will have it on every show and in every newspaper. You know all the things they didn’t do when the ACA was rolled out by Obama.
By the way Trump is right that if left untouched in two years the ACA would blow up. Remember Obama set it up so everything would hit after he was out of office.
——————– Finally ————————–
Check this out from the NY Times on their interview with Steve Bannon:
Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s chief White House strategist, laced into the American press during an interview on Wednesday evening, arguing that news organizations had been “humiliated” by an election outcome few anticipated, and repeatedly describing the media as “the opposition party” of the current administration.
“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile,” Mr. Bannon said during a telephone call.
“I want you to quote this,” Mr. Bannon added. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
“The elite media got it dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong,” Mr. Bannon said of the election, calling it “a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there.”
“The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign,” Mr. Bannon said. “Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: they were outright activists of the Clinton campaign.” (He did not name specific reporters or editors.)
“That’s why you have no power,” Mr. Bannon added. “You were humiliated.”
