President Trump's first week in office: Executive orders and other various sundries

We have a new President of the United States, dear reader. For the first time in eight long-ass years, we have one that will speak to us, not at us. A President who, much like Mr. Reagan 30 years ago, will talk because he genuinely wants to address the American public and not because he views it as a mere formality to be delivered devoid of emotion in a near-monotone. One who can go off-script and explain himself or his policies without the "uhhhhhh"s, "errrrrr"s and assorted squeaks and whistles that accompanied Obama at the podium.
Klunk from Dastardly and Muttley in their Flying Machines was an entirely competent speaker compared to Asshat the 44th. Hell, Muttley himself, with his "rassa-frassa-frassa," could deliver a more lucid argument than B. Hussein Obama ever could without TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States).

 
Muttley: Compared to Barry Hussein Obama, a polished speaker of renowned eloquence

Do you want to know how committed this allegedly mysogynistic Grand Wizard of the KKK President of ours is to America and its people? Get a load of the executive orders Trump has signed since taking office last week:
(1) He has fulfilled his promise to halt arrivals from hotbeds of Islamic terrorism by banning immigration from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Saudi Arabia should have been included on that list, but what they hey, I'll gladly take it.
(2) He has sought to clamp down on "the unwarranted economic and regulatory burdens" of the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. This is the first step in dismantling the bureaucratic nightmare of Obamacare so that a more equitable and free market-based health care system can be hashed out by the Republican Congress.
(3) Trump has re-instituted the so-called Mexico City Policy which bans the U.S. from funding the global abortion industry, preventing non-governmental organizations from encouraging abortions. The policy is named after the location of a U.N. Conference on population in 1984 where President Ronald Reagan first announced the strategy.
(4) An order was signed to start rebuilding our military in the wake of all the plunder and neglect it suffered under the Obama administration.
(5) Mr. Trump signed an executive order which put a freeze on governmental regulations until they can be fully read and researched—and rejected if they do nothing to advance energy independence, business or job creation. Another executive order was signed freezing the federal workforce. Both were long overdue.
(6) At long last, the Keystone/Dakota Access pipeline has been approved. Another milestone on the road to American energy self-sufficiency.
(7) Trump has withdrawn the U.S. from the Trans Pacific Partnership, which was designed to be the Asian/Pacific Rim equivalent of the European Union. Also, the North American Free Trade Agreement will be renegotiated, if the Mexicans don't withdraw from that. More on that in a bit.
(8) Trump has cut federal funding to sanctuary cities across the country. Another measure that is long overdue. If the mayors of these cities will not follow the law, then Trump is absolutely right to break them by refusing government funding for their cities. The policy is working. Already, Miami has capitulated.
(9) Last but certainly far from least, "the Wall" is being built and, with Trump in charge of the project, the whole thing will be done in three months with no sacrifices in quality.
Mexico says it will leave NAFTA if work on the Wall doesn't cease and the policy is not immediately reversed. That's supposed to be a threat? Hey, Mexico, you made a $60 billion trade surplus from NAFTA over the past seven years, but you refuse to stump $15 billion for the Wall, which will stop Central Americans from flooding your country because they won't be steaming northward anymore? Good, we don't need your narco-state mooching off America's generosity anymore. Don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you, amigos. We'll trade L.L. Bean flannel shirts with the hockey-heads to the north of us instead and we'll be just dandy.
Mexico says that the construction of the Wall is an assault upon its dignity. That's odd, because I didn't think it had any considering it is a one-party oligarchy whose presidents, including the current Enrique Peña Nieto, are controlled by the nation's drug cartels, and won't even allow its citizens to possess equalizers. How dignified of you, Mexico.
This country has, since NAFTA was signed 24 years ago, become an exporting powerhouse. It exports practically everything. Factories left the American Rust Belt to reöpen in Mexico, sometimes just a measly ten miles south of the border. Its exports are worth $400 billion per year. Yes, I'll say that again: Mexico's exports are currently worth 400 billion dollars a year, with 80 percent of those exports going to the U.S., tariff-free. And Mexico wants to throw that all away because of an assault on its "dignity"? Talk about unhinged. Go ahead, Mexico. Honestly. Make the gringo's day.
Now then, no true conservative wants a President to operate with just a pen and a phone. It is because Obama ran his occupation of the White House this way which merited a similar response from the new President, to reverse some of the damage. I'm in no mood to attempt to pursue any of these things through Congress only for McConnell and Ryan to stall their progress and pontificate to the oh-so-unbiased media from the high moral ground that they think they have, and I'm not alone. Screw Congress. Get some major, policy-shifting stuff enacted now and let's see if Congress doesn't eventually get dragged into the nationalist zeitgeist. Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire and, with these numerous executive orders, this is just what Mr. Trump is doing.
Make no mistake about it, this is excellent work by the new Prez and it demonstrates that he is standing by his campaign promises and acting on the issues that allowed him to connect with the electorate.
Although too much power in the hands of any President is a negative, especially as the Constitution does not allow for it, Trump's first week has seen him sign executive orders that are absolutely conservative, not "populist". They are conservative because they address the nation's economic health, its security and its respect for life as well as its robust rejection of globalism.
If you "purists"—you Glenn Beck, Bill Kristol and George Will types—refuse to give credit where it is due, if you cannot rise above your petulant jealousy of this man's wealth and the fact that he was more famous thirty years ago than you can ever hope to be, then I can't help you. You are clearly in league of your own—one that, rest assured, I'll never be seeking to join.
Meanwhile, President Trump has also launched an investigation into voter fraud. For those of you who think he is needlessly bringing up the election again, keep in mind that it was not he that started this. The media, in all its perversity, insisted on spreading the narrative that Mr. Trump's presidency is illegitimate and that he did not win the popular vote. I personally believe that I have heard the expression "the popular vote" more times in the past three months than I had in the forty-six years of my life which preceded them.
We know that the Democratic party machine brings in illegals to vote. In New Hampshire, for instance, they got bused into the polling places in Manchester and Nashua, entire hotels full of them. They all voted for Madame Hillary. The pantsuit stole New Hampshire, she stole Virginia and she possibly stole Colorado as well. Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta opined, in one of those now infamous e-mails of his, that it was fine for illegals to vote with driver's licenses. If we had media in this country with any integrity, this would be brought up. But as we absolutely do not, we have to go with what we know.
And what we know, courtesy of a study conducted by Professor Jesse Richman from Norfolk, Virginia's Old Dominion University, is that over 800,000 non-citizens voted for Hillary Clinton on November 8. Of the estimated 20 million illegals in the United States, Richman discovered 6.4 percent of them cast their votes for the Democrats, a number that equals 834,381. These are only those who were willing to admit it. And we're supposed to believe that Trump is wrong when he said 2 million illegal alien votes granted Clinton the popular vote? Give me a break.
In the brilliant words of Dan Bongino, who filled in for Mark Levin this Friday, "A survey was taken, and we all know that when it's a liberal survey that advances a liberal narrative, 'it's gold, brother. Just rock'n'roll with it, man. It's a liberal talking-point, of course the survey's real.' ... But what about when you ask people if they voted and they say yes and they weren't supposed to? 'No, no! No! Not that survey! Not that! There's no voter fraud. I can prove it! How? I don't know, I'm a liberal. I said it, and the media will say it, so it's gotta be real. It was on CNN, so it's definitely true. I saw it on MSNBC, that means that it actually happened, c'mon.' Oh, OK, yeah, that sounds legit."
Since the Democrats and their media lapdogs won't try to prove to us that this many illegal aliens didn't vote, we must pursue the proof that they did. Trump is on the case and, ladies and gentlemen, these law-breakers and frauds in the Democratic party will get exposed. I fully support this investigation.
Finally, I have to say, it's amazing just how hateful the Democrats continue to be in the wake of Trump's election victory and inauguration. Bad enough they would consider a racist/anti-Semite like Keith Ellison, every bit a radical community disorganiser as Obama, for chair of the Democratic National Committee. Now we have a Caucasian woman from Idaho running for the role named Sally Boynton Brown.
If you want to talk about the sick obsession with race that these unfortunates have, listen to Brown. At a Washington D.C. meeting of the seven candidates vying for control of the DNC, Brown told all those assembled:
My job is to listen and be a voice and my job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt. My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, "Oh no I'm not prejudiced I'm a Democrat, I'm accepting." My job is to make sure that they get that they have privilege and until we shut our mouths and we listen to those people who don't, we're not going to break through this.
Brown also implored the audience of malcontents to consider the fact that "we are so white" in Idaho. Great. Bravo. That's some really keen political insight there. I'm still trying to figure out what the problem is, though I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that Boise and Twin Falls haven't been totally taken over by young Afghan and Somali men yet.
Sally Boynton Brown has since reported that, in the wake of her vile observations at the DNC candidate conference, that her family has been threatened. Alright, well, I'm going to go ahead and say that this woman can't possibly love her family too much anyway to have said things that are so contemptuous of their race. What does it say that she wants a job so badly that she has to sound even more loathing of white people than Ellison or Black Lives Matter (Only When White People are Involved) in order to try and secure it? If I was any son of hers, I'd run far away from home, only after leaving a note behind reading, "Dear Mom, sorry I'm a white boy. I have gone to Africa in an attempt to figure out how the black race is so much better and superior to mine. Goodbye."
What kind of pathetic, milquetoast of a man would be married to this shrew? Honest to God, don't tell me this woman isn't fantasizing about somebody else or somebody else's, if you get my drift, every time they hit the sack. Kind of ironic that her last name is Brown. Just thinkin' out loud here, folks.
Disgusting beyond belief. Sally Boynton Brown, you and your type are the real deplorables in this country. But hey, good luck on becoming DNC chairwoman. It'll ensure a conservative-nationalist in the White House for quite some time to come.
And on that note, mes amis, if you're going to tell me that I am obligated to learn lessons about respect for the gentler sex from women wearing hats that look like vaginas and cheering a genuine mental case who couldn't stop mentioning the p-word and how that is integral to women's success, then I say in all sincerity: Get on your knees and blow me! Or grow up. Let the record show that I'll eagerly accept either.
