Presidential Executive Orders

As elections loom for 2020, Democrats are going to have to answer for their accomplishments since taking over the House majority.   Fixated on Trump demonizing, they have failed to actually do much of anything of importance.   While Congress typically averages the passage of 758 bills per session, a total of eighteen bills have been passed this year, including:

1)   Seven extensions of previous bills

2)   Two bills to further budget appropriations

3)   One bill to recognize a ‘reference’ as a bill

4)   A bill to clarify the pay of VA podiatrists

5)   A bill to authorize the honorary appointment of Robert Dole to colonel

6)   A bill to change the address of a postal facility designated in honor of Captain Humayun Khan

7)   A bill that directs the Secretary of Education to recognize school employees award program

8)   A bill requiring the Secretary of Interior to process agreements regarding Colorado River drought

9)   A bill to expand public target ranges in some states

10)   A bill to compensate federal employees affected by lapses in appropriations

11) A bill to amend the charter of Future Farmers of America

That’s it folks!

In essence what this highlights is the fact that the bigger the government, the less that is accomplished.   Immigration, infrastructure, Medicare, Healthcare, those issues that are most pressing according to The People, are blocked by the House through Pelosi and Schumer.   The only way Trump can bypass the moronic is through Executive Order.

During Clinton’s term he issued 364 Executive Orders.   George Bush issued 165 Executive Orders. And Obama issued 215 Executive Orders, but altered history by utilizing Executive Memorandums as a means to circumvent public outcry. As such, Obama asserted a historic 644 Executive Memorandums and 1186 Presidential Proclamations through January 19, 2017. A vast number of Obama’s orders included the establishment of new agencies within the government including; Office of Urban Affairs, National Economic Council, Economic Recovery Advisory Board, Council on Women and Girls, Office of Health reform, Commission for the Study of Bioethical issues, Council of Governors, etc…, etc…

Despite the fact that even the most liberal within government agree that Obama crossed the threshold of legality in many of his Executive Orders and Memorandums, these transgressions have gone without consequence.

Trump has signed 109 Executive Orders and 42 Executive Memorandums.

Of course, one of the more controversial executive Orders issued by Obama was the Iran Nuclear Deal and the billions in payments to Iran including a massive interest rate for funds held due to sanctions.   The deal was administered and signed by then Secretary of State, John Kerry. The same John Kerry who maintains a majority of his wealth in offshore tax havens, and the same John Kerry who has been found to be secretly meeting with Iran government officials promising to reinstate the Iran Nuclear Deal, despite this being potentially in violation of the Logan Act.

Enacted in 1799, The Logan Act criminalizes anyone negotiating with a foreign government having a dispute with the United States. In addition, Kerry avoided a $500,000 tax bill on his 76 foot yacht by docking it in Rhode Island instead of his home state of Massachusetts.   A move that was seen as rather hypocritical given his continual cry for imposing ‘higher taxes’.

With 23 Democrat contenders for President in 2020, citing their accomplishments for The People as opposed to their personal gains will likely become a dominant debate.

Despite the more obvious issues abounding, Democrats continue to state as their top priorities:

Kamala Harris:   justice for immigrants, blacks and LGBT

Joe Biden:   A mini New Green Deal, anti-Trump and Make America Great Again

Cory Booker:   Anti-lynching, carbon tax for climate change, and rental control

Bernie:   free everything for everybody including all illegals present and future

Buttigeig:   Medicare for all who want it, Green New Deal, LGBT rights

Of course Medicare for all who want it is essentially the package of socialist medicine for the middle class, while the elite will continue to embrace their own private health insurance. LGBT rights are already essentially in effect.   The New Green Deal is scary given the Roosevelt New Deal was administered via Executive Order…   And justice for immigrants is a bizarre concept that bears a load of question marks.

Unfortunately, none of the candidates espouse anything that would make them unique with attainable goals.   But they are united on one common goal – demonize all things Trump and all Trump supporters.

Should America Question the Mental Health Of Liberals?

By:  Paul Schwartzmeyer:

For an entire year, the media told us Donald Trump couldn’t win.

They told us repeatedly that Hillary would win by a landslide. And when they were proven wrong, the narrative changed to “he must have cheated.”

This narrative is common among teams that lose to the New England Patriots.

But this isn’t a football game. If someone was wrong for three solid years, what sane human would continue to believe them?  I never understood how Rachael Maddow maintained a following. Her “expose’” on Trumps tax return was the personification of pure stupidity. But in the media, one can make millions being a highly articulate moron.

If it was just the Mueller investigation, I’d be tempted to give them a pass.

It runs deeper than that. Look at their candidates.

It’s hard to imagine any candidate that could possibly make Sarah Palin look like presidential, but the democrats have four. Ocasio-Cortez is a witless imbecile that thinks we can eliminate cars. She’s an economist that doesn’t know what a trillion is. Bernie Sanders thinks the Soviet Union had a great economic system. Kamala Harris’s FATHER thinks she’s an idiot. Then there’s Beto, an Irish-Texan who thinks he’s Hispanic. After getting an elitist education, he became a NANNY!

Between the four, they have taken in upwards of twenty-million dollars!

Should we, or better yet, is it our responsibility to question the mental health of people like this.

The truly sad thing about Liberals is that their heads are frozen in stone.

NOTHING is going to change their minds – EVER.

These people armed with their state college social science degrees and freakish diets lack the ability to think critically. The travel the cities carrying their Whole Foods bags filled with colorful, overpriced vegetables and look down their noses on everybody that walks by.

One might be tempted to blame the media, but they’d be wrong.

The media today is not what it was even ten years ago. Customer tastes are not estimated by marketing agents, but by complex algorithms created by mathematicians and run through social media outlets. It’s the AUDIENCE that demands stupidity from Rachael Maddow.

In other words, the cart is driving the horse.

If you look at the “media” that the left propagates, it’s pure hate. I used to belong to a liberal writer’s group. They would write articles that did nothing other than mock and then sit in circles grunting like apes at how funny they are.

Barack Obama was interviewed in the middle of a war on Comedy Central.

As Americans were dying in Afghanistan and Iraq, he was on ESPN doing his March Madness picks.

Have you ever watched Fareed Zacharia?

Is there a more revolting, insulting hate monger on earth. He would sit there, night after night, his nostrils flared, an expression of hate that resembles a member of ISIS, and rant on… middle class whites are racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, deplorables.

These people are so ensconced in elitist hate and so certain of their moral superiority, they are impossible to talk to.

It’s high time we question their mental health.
