President Trump: True to His Word

23

It’s been less than a week since President Donald J. Trump took office, and he has, in no short order, astonishingly delivered on myriad campaign promises. In spades. His hands-on style of governing is breathtaking. The people spoke. The people won. And our man is delivering the goods. It’s what freedom is supposed to look like. We have been living under the boot of leftist autocrats for so long, we forgot it could be this good. We have been set free. Every day is Christmas.

The whole of the enemedia is in a collective tailspin, hell-bent on ignoring his monumental accomplishments, and instead are churning out fake news stories about crowd size — his and the sore losers march (funny how they never did a story on Tea Party crowd size). Last night, ABC news anchor David Muir, in the first interview Trump gave as President, made something of an ass of himself trying to bait the President focusing on “crowd size” and today’s favorite enemedia meme — “who’ll pay for the wall?” As if the Democrats ever gave a fig about costs. Who paid for the absurd “cash for clunkers”? Or Obama’s endless bailouts? Or Obamacare? Or Obama’s hundreds of billions to Iran? Or Obama’s 20 trillion dollar deficit? If Trump says Mexico will pay for that wall, rest assured, they will — one way or another.

Trump’s accomplishments in five days are nothing short of miraculous. We are witnessing history. And it’s wonderful. And no one is talking about it. It’s kafkaesque.

The old Republican guard, falling into the media’s trap once again, decry Trump’s handling of the media. They say he shouldn’t be responding to the media’s false accusations. Instead, he should be talking about the actions he is taking. As if the media would report (positively, no less) on what Trump has set in motion And why are the RINOS still considered our spokespeople? They are not. Has FOX learned nothing from this election? They, too, are playing into the enemedia’s false narratives of crowd size, wall costs and black sites.

The left will not go quietly. They want a war, and by George, they may very well get one. Last night, they demonstrated in Washington Square Park — led by Hamas-tied CAIR. It is amusing that the left has handed the reins of power to terror-tied groups such as CAIR, who seek to impose sharia across this great land. Black slavery (in many Muslim countries), gender apartheid, creed apartheid is now the rallying cry for the left? Perfect. The left has become a ridiculous parody of itself.

This week Trump:

    • Trump Abandons Trans-Pacific Partnership, Obama’s Signature Trade Deal
    • President Donald Trump Signs Executive Order to Defund International Planned Parenthood
    • Trump to DEFUND UN Groups Who Give Full Membership to Palestinian Authority

While the Democrat-media axis recoils, Trump keeps his promises

By Matt Mackowiak, Washington Times, – – Thursday, January 26, 2017

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I am not going to pretend that the first week of the Trump presidency has not been a little bumpy.

But the collective freakout over everything President Trump or his team says or does is reaching unprecedented levels in modern history.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer unfortunately relayed false Metro ridership statistics on Saturday. That story was treated with collective hyperventilation, amid calls for his firing, his resignation and perhaps his public hanging.

Thankfully, cooler heads prevailed this week as Mr. Spicer has been poised, smart and well-prepared to handle all manner of detailed questions thrown his way during what remains a chaotic new presidency.

I have known Mr. Spicer for a decade. He’s a good and decent person, who served our country in the Navy Reserve, as assistant U.S. trade representative, in senior roles on Capitol Hill and over six years at the Republican National Committee. He will do an excellent job as Mr. Trump’s spokesman.

If the new administration appears somewhat unprepared, perhaps it is because on Inauguration Day only two of Mr. Trump’s Cabinet members — Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly — had been confirmed by the Senate. By comparison, eight years ago President Obama had seven Cabinet secretaries in place by the end of his first day.

This week Mr. Trump got two more nominees confirmed, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who was needlessly delayed three days over the weekend, and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, who was overwhelmingly confirmed. I would hope that we can all agree that it is exceedingly difficult to run the federal government without people leading the federal agencies that make up the government.

Nevertheless, in his first days in office, Mr. Trump is methodically carrying out the promises he made as a candidate, mostly through issuing, and soon also through rescinding, executive orders. Perhaps the arrogant Obama administration finally regrets governing almost solely through executive orders that can be so easily wiped off the books.

Democrats are howling about an executive order that ends U.S. taxpayer funding for abortions overseas, widely known as the “Mexico City policy.” That view has been in the political mainstream for decades.

Mr. Trump gave agencies flexibility within Obamacare to reduce its harm to the economy, as it will be fully repealed by the end of February and the replacement plan ready by the end of March.

On Tuesday, President Trump withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a move which in my view strengthens China economically, but it was a promise he made and it’s a promise he kept. He also now wants to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, the free trade deal with Mexico and Canada.

A day later, Mr. Trump announced he would defund “sanctuary cities” — those jurisdictions around the country that are flagrantly defying federal immigration laws, a move that shouldn’t even be controversial. Releasing criminals back into communities, by ignoring detainer requests issued by federal judges, makes no sense whatsoever and recklessly endangers the public. The days of refusing to enforce the law with no consequences are over.

The new president also is altering refugee policy from countries where no legitimate vetting process exists, as top Obama administration officials testified under oath late last year. I do not believe this will be permanent policy, and we want our country to be generous and compassionate, but Islamic State has openly said it wants to infiltrate its operatives into the U.S. Don’t we need stronger vetting?

Finally, Mr. Trump is moving forward with the Mexico border wall, with planning starting now and building beginning “in months.” I suspect this will ultimately be a complete border wall in urban areas, and layered fencing and virtual security in rural areas, but the southern border is not secure and anyone who claims that it is has never been there.

Mr. Trump made certain promises as a candidate and he is following through in a methodical way. I do not agree with everything he says or does, but the voters knew he would do these things if he won, and as a helpful reminder he won 33 states and 306 electoral votes.

Before rushing to judgment, can’t we all simply just wait a few months and see what the results of these policies are?

    To be successfully carried through, these kind of executive orders should be accompanied by MASSIVE educational effort directed toward American public, education about true nature of Islam, about “Islamophobia” hoax, etc. I await absolute necessity to implement educational reform next: it is needed, and it MUST be done. If outright liquidation of public education system and thus closing of the Department of Education is not yet possible, at least it must be REFORMED properly (and purged from bad seeds) to include those changes. There is no other way!

      Voytek:
      I agree. But the teachers and profs are mostly commies. They won’t do it. The last 10 years has seen a massive re-education in the US. Pamela Geller used to be a tiny voice in the wilderness. About 150 million Americans now get some of their news from accurate websites.

      45 million socialists are still only about 15% of the population.

      Many of the Leftist trolls are gone, and the left in general is trending toward a re-think. We conservatives could do more to identify the ones who are re-thinking, and educate them, with respectful discussion. That seems to be working now, for some commenters.

    The media is behaving like spoiled rotten trust fund babies that had their allowances revoked.

    • DemocracyRules

      Hi Patti.
      Yeah, well that’s about what happened. These MSM people are so in bed with the Leftist politicians, that when Trump took over, they lost their gravy-train.

    “It is bemusing that the left has handed the reins of power to terror-tied groups like CAIR who seek to impose sharia across this great land.”

    – Yes. Listening to German women screaming “Allahu Akbar” is even better: https://youtu.be/L2TLo1Utb1I

      berserker:
      The Left needs Islamists, to act as shock troops, to cause street violence and social upheaval. It’s all laid out in the Communist Manifesto, 1848. (Amazon).
      http://www.amazon.com/Communist-Manifesto-Karl-Marx/dp/0717802418

      “Resistance cultures” are hard to mobilize. Blacks mostly like America, and they won’t die on the streets like Islamists will. Blacks protest and riot for a while, and then go home. Same as they did in the 1960’s. Feminists are lousy rioters. No burning cars or anything in the women’s march in DC. Just blah-blah.

      LBGTs are also poor rioters, afraid of getting hurt. Jews are worse, they assimilated. Hispanics are OK, but they are assimilating rapidly, and won’t riot enough. Native Indians can be pretty tough, but they are rural.

      Nothing like a good terrorist bombing to stir things up, and make the people cry out for new government.

      Paying attention to germany is a waste of time, germany is a nation of fools, who, actually know they are fools, but are too foolish to admit it, so they try and force their stupidity on others, to make it look like they are the trend setter.

    • pipo

      Well I had always certain time for Germans but I hope that the women will get raped in the name of pallah and the men will be beheaded on the streets of what once was a great Germany. Aufwedersehen Deutschland, ich wuensche alle alles Gute und komm’ nicht wieder. Die Deutsche Linke sind wirklich reine Schweine, nein Schweinhuende.

    Amazing… Now at 59% approval overall, and about 44% strong approval. And Trump’s strong disapproval ratings are also dropping fast.

  • DemocracyRules

    A run-down of the opponents to the democratic free-enterprise republic. It is unethical and undemocratic to withhold vital information about conflicts of interest. And these are HUGE conflicts of interest. This helps explain fake news. The people behind it are chronic, ongoing fake news-makers, who will not stop until someone stops them.

  • Rocinante44

    good, but now he has to turn his guns on the worthless repub congress. just can’t seem to deliver on their obolacare replacement deadline after having had 6 years to plan for this day? unacceptable. i hope trump lowers his boom on them this week

  • Dave Mc

    President Trump’s week is an indicator of what’s to come. When his people are in place, and law enforcement feels secure in doing their duties, and we all feel the uptick in the economy, this great tidal wave that has begun will become ever more visible.

    I believe we are going to have the country we want before another year has passed.

  • Bitter Klinger

    Go Donald GO!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Like Bismark said, “Laws and sausages are tow things you do not want to see how they are made”. To be efficient, fair and honest, requires a callus disregard for the asinine rankings of the left and there imbecilic demands that things always be done their way. It is irrelevant if it makes anyone happy of is requires, democrat liberals are dogmatic bitchss.

  • wildjew

    He’s done quite a lot of good things conservatives support, especially on national security, I agree.

  • We finally have an America-loving POTUS!

    • joe1429

      Great!!! The Exact opposite of the piece of crap that left)

  • Drew the Infidel

    This is what is driving the left even crazier than before and that is that Trump doesn’t say sh*t he doesn’t mean and he follows through. The watchword has become, “Don’t take him literally but do take him seriously”.
