PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST 100 DAYS

Every time a new President of the United States takes office, the opposition party and the media always talk about his first 100 days. I don’t remember how the “first 100 days” began, nor do I remember much about the Obama, Bush II, or Clinton 100 days, much less Carter, Reagan, of Bush 1 first 100 days. I think it’s a little silly, since we elect a United States President for a four-year period as opposed to a 100 day period. Because it appears that I’m the only one who doesn’t take this first 100 days garbage seriously, I feel, nonetheless, obligated to write a synopsis of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days.

This information presented in this article is attributable to Dick Morris, an American political author and commentator, who previously worked as a pollster, political campaign consultant, and general political consultant. He was a friend and advisor to former President Bill Clinton during his time as Governor of Arkansas and after Clinton was elected to the White House.

According to Dick Morris, President Trump has done a lot, but not enough to turn the whole world around in Trump’s first 100 days.

Morris goes on to indicate that the impact of Donald Trump in Washington will encourage job growth, entrepreneurship, and the performance of border patrols and our nation’s police forces. Entrepreneurs are now encouraged to take risks as they wouldn’t do under the Obama presidency, making the Trump presidency already so much different than that of Obama.

For starters, the Dow is up by 3,000 points, the NASDAQ is up by 1,000 points. Under President Trump, job growth is 30% more than it was in Obama’s last three months. Illegal border crossings are down by 71%, existing home sales are up 4%, and consumer confidence is the highest it has been since 2000, and the trade deficit is down by 10%. Furthermore, the barometer of economic growth is the highest that it’s been since November when Trump was first elected.

One of Trump’s biggest success of his first 100 days, was the nomination and affirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. All indications are that Justice Gorsuch will be a justice that will interpret the law instead of legislating from the bench according to his political views. With respect to the U.S. Constitution, he is an originalist who will interpret the constitution as our founding father’s intended it to be interpreted, not as a living document.

With respect to environment issues, President Trump has reversed the Obama decision, and approved for construction, the Keystone Pipeline. The Obama regulations on power plants have been reversed, and fuel emission standards have been rolled back. By reversing Obama’s “Clean Power Plan,” which gave the already too powerful EPA jurisdiction over every small stream in America, we can be assured that the heinous anti-American/anti-freedom actions that Obama espoused will come to an end.

As indicated above, illegal border crossings are down by 71%, and 5000 new border patrol agents have been hired.  There have been big cuts in the number of H15 visas issues and refugees from countries who sponsor terrorism are no longer being admitted to the United States.

During his presidency, Obama had set up a series of consent decrees suing police departments, ordering them to get rid of “stop and frisk,” and halt searching for guns. President Trump has now reversed these consent decrees, taking the handcuffs off policemen and allowing policemen to handcuff criminals instead. In addition, he is opening a new study on how to best save police lives.

He is ending federal funding for sanctuary cities and has put in place a new executive order which indicates that for each new regulation adopted by the administration, at least two regulations already on the books must be eliminated.

President Trump’s launching of a study on opioid abuse is the first of its kind instituted by any sitting President of the United States.

In 1993, after he took office, President Clinton put in place a five-year band on lobbying for folks that left the executive branch of government. The five-year ban remained in place during his presidency until December 2009 when Clinton revoked the order. This meant that top subordinates, those currently in government and those who have left could start lobbying their former agencies after one year from their last day on the job. The one year ban is contained in a 1978 law that is still in force, according to the Washington post in an article by John Mintz, dated December 20, 2000. President Trump has now re-instated that ban and a ban that would ban lobbying a foreign government forever.

Asking liberals and the mainstream media about President Trump’s accomplishments will get you nothing but lies. They will state that all the president has done is vacation at his Mar-a-Lago resort in South Florida and play golf. Remember liberals couldn’t tell the truth if their lives depended on it.

Liberals and the media, both left-leaning and right-leaning, have weighed in on the failures of Congress to pass legislation repealing and replacing Obamacare, to pass a meaningful tax reform measure, and to build a wall on the Mexican border to put an end to illegal through our southern border.

Once sweeping legislation like Obamacare has been passed, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to roll back. Thus, the repeal and replacement of Obamacare has to be done right, and the transition must be smooth. I want it done right, and I think everyone else does also, so let’s do it right even if it takes a little longer. I feel the same way about tax reform.

The accomplishments of President Trump in the first 100 days of his presidency are substantial and more than many presidents have done in their first 100 days. Remember, we elect a president for a four-year term not a 100-day term. Think we can get liberals to understand that concept?

LIBERAL NATURE NEVER CHANGES

As a political writer, I often interject myself into liberal threads, mostly on Facebook. While there are some folks who think that people should stay off threads/forums where their views differ from most the folks posting on that thread/forum, I disagree. It’s a “freedom of speech thing.” You have the right to your opinion, even though the left in this country doesn’t think so.

When you get on a primarily liberal thread/forum, you’re going to get trashed, called names, and insulted because that’s what the left does and that’s all the left knows how to do. They’re losers on the issues, so all they can do when you post facts and statistics is call you names, hoping disrupt your train of thought and scare you off of “their thread.” When liberals start belittling you personally, you’re winning. When they call you a racist, you’ve won the debate, hands down. It’s the liberal nature, the nature of the beast. As I’ve indicated many times on this blog, liberals make up the definition of racism as they go along to whatever suits their needs of the moment.

Liberals have a hard time with reading comprehension. In other words, they can’t seem to understand what they read. On almost every liberal thread I visit, I have to explain at least two times, if not more, the point I was trying to make. The question is: do they really not understand what I’m saying or are they trying to throw me off subject because they can’t possibly win an argument with me? I’m guessing the latter.

We all know that liberals are haters. They hate the new President of the United States, Donald Trump. They hate his family, they hate his administration, and they hate his supporters, including me, and including you. They’re also hypocrites. And you know what? They don’t care. They loathe you so much that they don’t think they’re accountable to you. They don’t have to justify their hypocrisy. They don’t’ have to justify their lawlessness to you. They don’t have to justify anything they do to you because you’re so stupid, and you’re such nothings. That’s liberal nature.

There have been a number of weekends, since his inauguration, where the president has traveled to his resort property, Mar-a-Lago in Florida, for a working weekend. In fact, I don’t think that the president has taken a full day off since he took the oath of office. Yet the liberals continue to beat the drum that these working weekends were vacations. He has played some golf, but it is unknown whether he finished games or just teed-off and left to do other things. It seems as though liberals have forgotten Obama’s golf outings, his date nights with Michelle in the Big Apple, and his and the former first lady’s many vacations. Furthermore, President Trump has indicated that he would pay for his and the family’s vacations. Of course, we’ll have to see if that happens. While I’m a Trump supporter, I’ve also followed politics for over a quarter of a century and feel that I know the nature of politics on both sides of the spectrum, and sometimes it’s not always on the up and up.

I have to admit that I have a hard time wrapping my arms around liberal nature, or what liberals really espouse, which is the total control over all of our lives because they think we’re too stupid to make intelligent decisions. Who says all of our decisions have to be intelligent ones? And where do they get off on thinking the decisions they make are intelligent ones?

When friends ask me for my opinion on certain serious matters relating to their own lives, I always respond, indicating that the decision should be their decision, not mine. If I make the decision for them and it turns out to be a wrong decision, then it’s all my fault. If they make the decision, then it’s their decision and they will have to live with it, without blaming me. If I advise someone to spend $100 on a dress, they do it, and end up not liking the dress, they’re only out $100. But if someone asks me whether or not they should break up with a boyfriend or divorce a spouse, the friend has to make that decision, not me. That’s a biggie.

Back to liberal nature, liberals think they know what’s best for you…how you should invest and spend your money, what health insurance coverages you should choose, what you eat, what you drive, what setting your thermostat should be, etc.

I indicated above that liberals are incapable of comprehending what they read or hear on the news. They are always going to think that working weekends by the president at Mar-a-Lago are vacations. They are always going to think that any questioning of the effectiveness of a government entitlement program means you hate the poor and hate minorities. They are always going to think that the reason you didn’t support former President Barack Obama’s policies is because you hate him because of the color of his skin. When you indicate that you think illegal aliens should be deported and, as a nation, we should crack down on illegal immigration, liberals are never going to recognize the difference between legal and illegal immigration, and accuse you of being against all immigration. They will never agree to the originalist view of the constitution, and they will never agree to obeying laws they don’t like.

The above are just a few examples of liberal nature. They’re never going to agree to look at both sides of issues, even though the definition of liberalism includes the ability to examine all factors of an issues.

So, why even enter a discussion on a liberal thread or forum? To make them mad. To reinforce that you’re right and that they are wrong. To let them accuse you of all sorts of falsehoods and egregious things. Then keep records of what they say to you, and use those records to further illustrate their unfathomable hatred of you, the president, conservatives, and anyone who does not agree with them. Keep throwing it at them and continue to expose their liberal nature.

If they’re never going to change their opinions or jettison their intense hate, why bother? Because we have to, the future of this nation depends on exposing their un-American rhetoric and promoting our patriotism.
