Friday, January 27th, 2017, and Donald J. Trump is still the 45th President of the United States. And, in his first full week as the Nation's President, a few things have becoming crystal clear---the President is in charge of running this country, not the dishonest butt-hurt Media, not the shocked protesters, and certainly not the Washington D.C. Establishment Pundits, or the Democrats.
As I wrote yesterday, President Trump is already moving his agenda forward, and with a pace even the media can't keep up with. At Trump's address to Republicans in the House and Senate at their Philadelphia retreat, he said: “Enough all talk, no action. We have to deliver---This is our chance to achieve great and lasting change for our beloved nation.” The two leaders in the Republican Congress concurred, as both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan indicated they are on board with bringing legislation to Trump's desk, and show Americans they mean business.
As for the Liberal Mainstream Media---that can't seem to catch up---they're still busy hashing over inauguration crowd size, voter fraud & Russian hacking, who's going to pay for the Southern Border Wall, arguing about torture, and falsely creating the narrative that Republicans aren't united in getting the people's business done.
Hilariously this morning, the liberal pundits over a MSNBC are worried about---ready for this---the Budget. After eight years of adding over eight trillion in new debt, (much of it wasted in questionable paybacks to Democrats, their "funders", a disastrous take-over of health insurance industry, and a phony "shovel-ready" jobs program), the Morning Joe panel suddenly is worried about how Trump's agenda might be a bit costly. Since Mr. Obama decided to gut the Military and expand the scope of the Federal Government, spending may have to come early in the Trump administration, before his "putting American back to work" programs kick in. On the chopping block, however, is the repeal and replacement of ObamaCare, massive reductions in the bloated federal government, including restructuring of regulations choking businesses.
Also on the agenda of the Republican legislators is a total revision of TAX policies, (including reducing the corporate tax structure from 35% down to 15%-20%).
Throw in a visit from British Prime Minister Theresa May, and President Trump has had a busy and productive week---all accomplished with only four cabinet confirmations, thanks to Chucky Schumer and his simi-powerless obstructionist.
With "hopefully" more of his cabinet getting confirmed next week, and his Supreme Court nominee announcement, it looks like full steam ahead for Mr. Trump, his Party, and the American Public, who are quite pleased with seeing the progress.
Of course, the butt-head liberal media will have a different story they'll try to sell to the public, even while Car Salesmen, and Lawyers have more credibility at the moment.
