Trump Plan B: Take on Elite GOP and Progressive Left Alone!

Congress, the Elite GOP, The Never-Trumpers, the Progressive-Left and the Main Stream Media have set up the perfect storm for Trump to initiate the takeover of US politics in 2018!  Trump was never an ideologue on the right or left.  Trump is a died in the wool America First Populist!  He has consistently stated his goals and aspirations for this nation for the past 30 years and they have not changed!  He gave McConnell a chance and McConnell failed.  He gave Ryan a chance and Ryan failed.  He gave Pelosi a chance and Pelosi failed.  He gave Schumer a chance and Schumer failed. 

Now, the Trump Plan B is being initiated!

Trump’s Plan B is merely a strategy to enact his agenda via executive orders; take his case directly to the American People for his agenda items; and finally to set up RINO Republicans and vulnerable Democrats who are up for reelection in 2018 to be “primaried” and defeated by Trump America First Populist.

Trump’s first choice was to work with the Republicans in Congress to enact his legislative agenda on Healthcare, Taxes, Infrastructure, Education, and immigration reforms.  But, Ryan’s lukewarm support coupled with McConnell’s outright disdain and stonewalling of the Trump agenda forced the President’s hands.  And as he told us, he has really big hands!

Obamacare (ACA):  We are all totally fed up with Congress and their giving us the fickle finger of fate and their outright treasonous refusal to Repeal and Replace Obamacare.  Trump has been beating his head up against the Congressional stone wall trying to get the Elitist to own up to their promises to their constituents.  Even the House bill was a fraud and not a true repeal as promised.  Then McCain and Co. made sure that the Senate built a legislative wall against Trump and Repeal.

Obamacare Phase II: 

Now, Trump is taking the dismantling of Obamacare into his own hands.  Thankfully, the Democrats and Obama wrote a really flawed Obamacare bill that left a gaping hole of executive privilege in changing the execution of the ACA.  Further, the subsidies to insurance companies actually violated the Constitution in that it allowed payments to the insurance companies WITHOUT Congressional approval:  

Article I, Section 9, Clause 7:  “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.”

President Trump is merely not going to cut checks to the Insurance companies citing US Constitutional grounds that is backed by the Department of Justice and a Virginia Federal Court.

In addition to this unconstitutional payment that Obama took upon himself to approve, President Trump just signed orders to pave the way to allow groups of citizens to ban together to create insurance groups.  These groups can set their own plan requirements and negotiate with any or multiple insurance companies for coverage.  To increase the feasibility of these groups, the President also signed an executive order to allow for insurance policies to be purchased across State lines.  While the implementation of these steps could take up to a year to set in place, they will certainly change the direction of health care insurance in the US.  The left and their MSM media set their hair on fire today bemoaning these changes so Trump must be doing the right thing. 

If you are masochistic enough to watch the MSM, you will hear that these are radical changes that will hurt the poor, seniors, and the middle class.  These changes allow the poor and the middle class to have access to healthcare insurance that is exactly the same as the access big corporations and business have today which equals 50% of the total healthcare market in the US.  Remember, Obama kept delaying the forcing of Corporations and big business to have to join Obamacare for his own reelection and that of Hillary Clinton.  So, Trump is merely allowing the poor and middle class to have the same rights as 50% of the currently insured citizens!  Note;  The left continually state that the changes will impact senior citizens.  In fact, seniors, like me, are covered by Medicare and this has no impact on me or my fellow seniors.

Tax Reform/Tax Cuts Phase II:

After Trump witnessed the demise of the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, he decided NOT to leave the passage of this signature legislation to McConnell and Ryan.  The latter two told Trump that they had his back and did not need Trump to go the people to sell the repeal and replace legislation.  Burn Trump once, and you are done!

The President is making weekly addresses to rallies and groups regarding the need to push Congress to pass his framework for tax reform and tax cuts.  He is highlighting the need for citizens to hold their congress men and women and senators to accountable for passing the Trump tax plans.  Trump also use social media to hammer Congress almost daily on the need to pass his tax agenda.  In short, if Congress screws this up, they will own it!

Unfortunately, the President will not have much wriggle room to use executive orders to change tax laws.  He can tweak some of the IRS regulations that may be hurting some taxpayers but he will not be able to reform the tax code nor make changes to the tax brackets.  IF Congress does not pass the Trump Tax Reforms and Cuts, Trump will use this in his “2018 Primary Strategy-Phase II” as outlined below.

Immigration Reform-Phase II:

The good news regarding immigration reform and controlling the borders, Trump can and is using existing law to authorities to accomplish many of his immigration goals.  In this case, Congressional ineptitude has worked to Trump’s advantage.

The President has rescinded all of Obama’s orders that curtailed border enforcement and enforcement of immigration law.  This has been backed by the DOJ and ICE aggressively enforcing the deportation of illegal aliens with criminal records and other federal law violations.  Trump is cracking down on Visa overstays as well as setting immigration limits to the lowest levels in years.  Trump has also put DACA squarely on Congress’s plate.  If Congress fails to authorize DACA, it will end and Trump will lay the potential deportation of 800,000 illegal DACA immigrants at the feet of both the GOP and Dems in Congress!  Trump has also put the funding of the border wall in his budget that is up for a Congressional vote.  IF Congress fails to fund the wall, Trump will also dump this on them as well as use it during the 2018 midterms.  Trump has also created a 70 item framework for Congress to consider in reforming the major portions of immigration law.

As stated above, the “trump” card Trump holds is that if Congress does not enact his immigration reforms, he will use this against any legislators who stonewall him as discuss in the “2018 Primary Strategy-Phase II” below.

Education Reform-Phase II:

Trump is working with Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to reform the DOE and the US educational goals and regulations.  They have already rolled back the Obama Title IX changes that basically allowed for male students to be considered guilty of sexual aggressions without due process.  They are also reviewing other federal mandates to States and School Districts to turn back more control to the States and local school boards.  

One of the major changes to education that Trump is pursuing is School Choice, especially for minorities.  Trump views this policy as the long-term fix to inner city poverty and crime reduction.  Trump will need to work with Congress on funding and revamping a few laws to pave the way for this policy change.  While school choice is favored by poor American-Blacks and American-Hispanics, the Progressive-Left and Democrats will fight this change tooth and nail.  They are owned by the teacher’s unions and rely a great deal on their contributions in local, State and Federal elections.

While Trump and DeVos have been somewhat off of the radar on school choice, Trump will ramp this issue up around the first of the year and make it part of the 2018 mid-term elections.

2018 Primary Strategy-Phase II

Trump’s recent dust-ups with Senators Corker, Flake, McCain, and others in the Senate and House, signal the Trump strategy to change the make-up of the Republican Party to include a majority of American First Populists.  There will be three major areas of focus in 2018.

  1. Target Sitting Democrat Senate Candidates:  Senators like Joe Manchin are up for reelection to the Senate in 2018.  Manchin is the Democrat Senate candidate in West Virginia where Trump won overwhelmingly in 2016.  Manchin and his seat is a prime target for Trump in 2018.  Claire McCaskell (D) of Missouri, Joe Donnelly (D) of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp (D) North Dakota, Joe Tester (D) Montana, Bill Nelson (D) Florida, Bob Casey Jr. (D) Pennsylvania, Debbie Stabenow (D) Wisconsin, and others are in a similar pickle in their efforts to retain their Senate seats against the Trump America First Populist machine!  The map below shows how vulnerable the Democrats are in 2018.  They have 23 seats up for grab compared to on 8 open GOP seats.
  2. Target Elitist, Anti-Trump Republicans in the House and Senate:  The focus of the Trump America First Populist machine will include Jeff Flake (R), Arizona, and Dean Heller (R) Nevada.  Both Flake and Heller have openly opposed Trump and have been vocal in the media and on social media against Trump.  The House Republicans may also be “primaried” by more conservative and Pro-Trump candidates and this will unfold between now and the 2018 primaries.  The House Freedom Caucus will seek to extend its membership and power to assist the passage of the Trump agenda.  There will also be a concerted effort in the House and Senate to unseat the leadership teams of Ryan and McConnell.  Ryan could be replaced by Mark Meadows and McConnell could be replaced by Roy Blunt!
  3. Engage “We The People”:  The President will probably be one of the most active Presidents in history campaigning for Trump America First Populist candidates.  Trump will also aggressively campaign for his MAGA agenda in order to stalemate the remaining Anti-Trump Elitist!  The President will hold Trump rallies in key states and districts pushing his America First Populist candidates.  The House and Senate reelection committees would do well to work with the Trump team or they will find themselves at odds with the President’s Bully Pulpit that will continue to grow in strength!

Donald J. Trump has not changed his priorities for America in the past 30 years and will continue to push his America First Populist agenda.  The Republicans that continue to oppose him will do so at their own peril. 

The Russia probe will be out of steam by the 2018 primaries and the media’s messaging will continue to lower their own credibility. 

The Democrats will more than likely remain insignificant and I believe that their will lose more House and Senate seats.  They have no message and no leadership.

Hold onto your seats as 2018 nears.  Trump’s energy will continue to overwhelm the wusses in Congress and continue to confound the media.  Trump’s work ethic and focus will overcome the elites self-aggrandizement and the impact of their big money donors.

President Trump-God Truly has a Sense of Humor

(Reprinted from Christianity-In-Vogue)

We had two Bush Presidents, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and a host of Republican candidates who professed to be Christian men of God.  A few, very few, even displayed their faith somewhat openly in public. (I am always a little wary of someone who introduces themselves as, “I am Mr. Smith and I am a Christian”.  I always repeat to myself the passage from Matthew 7:16, “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”)  But the actions and legacy of all of these Presidents and candidates did not bear much if any, fruit that advanced the Word of God or even acknowledged His role I’m making this country a Christian example to the world.

Then, out of the blue, brash and plain speaking Donald J. Trump arrived on the scene as only he could do.  Descending on a golden escalator he announced his candidacy for the President of the United States as only a bold New Yorker from Queens could do!  To say that most people were shocked would be an understatement.  The evangelical community was already was looking to Ted Cruz as their candidate to begin the restoration of our foundational Judeo-Christian values in America.  Cruz had all of the bona fides most evangelicals and other Christians were seeking in a candidate.  By the end of the primaries, Trump had not only defeated all 16 of the Republican candidates, including Cruz, he won over a majority of Evangelicals and other Christians.

God’s Messengers:

The Bible gives us many examples where God used sinners, men and women with physical deficiencies, and people like the apostle Paul who actually was persecuting Christians of the early Church.  Trump was not persecuting Christians, but his name would not be first on your mind if you were conjuring up Christian men and women of strong faith.  In Exodus 4:10-11 Moses said to the Lord:  “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and tongue.”  How could a man who stutters and who cannot form poignant retorts convince the Pharaoh to free the children of Israel?  How could Moses even convince his people to follow him?  Moses, like Trump, was not a natural orator, unlike Obama.  The bottom line is that it is God’s choice, not ours, who He will send to strengthen his people.  Acts 9:15 reminds us of God’s command to follow who he sends:  “But the LORD said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel.”  This was not a request and God was not open for suggestions!

Some have said that President Trump is a wolf in sheep’s clothing or in Christian terms evil masquerading as a child of God.  I reminded a friend once that God himself through the apostle Mark said in Mark 3:25:  “And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”  Meaning, that evil begets evil.  Good begets good.  Evil may use good people who have not sought the Word of God to guide their actions but if those people are actually doing good, fighting abortion, invoking the Name of the Lord in rallies and speeches, and restoring the rights of pastors, priests rabbis and others who preach from the pulpit to openly express their political beliefs in services.  (“You will know them by their fruits”).   The proof is in the actions of President Trump and his actions are contrary to the secular humanism that extinguishes the light of the Word.

I have also heard many pastors that I respect say that they spent hours seeking “discernment” concerning President Trump and all have said that they felt that they received spiritual direction and understanding in supporting the President.  First John 4:1, ( One John as President Trump would say :)), teaches us:  “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

How Does Trump Maintain Evangelical Support?

Trump’s evangelical inner-circle have spent enough time with him to learn the spirit of the man rather than outward, in your face rhetorician that characterized President Trump.  They have also observed that Trump is Trump, and he does what he says he will do and does not compromise his faith principles(“Ye shall know them by their fruits“)  Also, Trump is the first to admit that he is early in his reawakened walk with the Lord and is constantly seeking more knowledge of His teachings and questions his mentors for hours.  He challenges his friend and mentor, Orlando Pastor Paula White, constantly in seeking a deeper faith and a closer walk with our Lord.

Candidate Trump promised many things to many people during the 2016 campaign.  More specifically, he promised his evangelical council and inner-circle that he would openly seek to restore Judeo-Christian values and the Christian ethos back into American Life.  He spent hours with members of the clergy to learn about their concerns and roadblocks set in front of them by modern secular government.  Upon learning of the “Johnson Amendment”, Trump started a one man crusade to overturn this IRS regulation:  “Section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.”

Since the Johnson Amendment is an actual law passed by Congress, Trump cannot unilaterally overturn the law.  Only Congress can do that.  But, Trump signed an Executive Order on May 4th telling the IRS to not take any adverse action against house of worship or religious organization who may violate the Johnson Amendment by speaking out on behalf of or against a political campaign or candidate.  Since the IRS reports to the President via the Secretary of Treasury, Trump has in effect terminated the effect of the Johnson Amendment until Congress removes the statutes from the law.  Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise has put forth a law to remove the Johnson Amendment permanently.  The bill is currently in the Ways and Means Committee.

Trump has also been very vocal in his rallies when he openly says that we all are of the same God, that we need God back in our nation, that we should all say Merry Christmas.  While the Mainstream media interprets this as hyperbole and pandering, Trump is relentless at attacking institutional bigotry against Christianity specifically.  It is Trump’s consistent message, we need God in our lives and directing our nation, that solidifies his evangelical base.  Trump frequently meets with his evangelical Inner-circle and prays with them for wisdom to lead this nation back to greatness, but more importantly, GOODNESS.  Trump may slip at times as we all do, but God has put us here to help him back up!

Keep our 45th President in your hearts and prayers every day.  We have many secular and security challenges in front of us.  The Progressive-Left is always seeking to eliminate God from our lives, openly push for unlimited abortion, euthanasia, and push to replace religious worship with secular humanism.

The good news is that we have “Read the Book”, and we know how this all ends!  God Bless this President and Our Nation.

Radical Progressive Left & MSM Pushing Suicide Scenario With Russia and Trump

STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES!

Image result for nuclear explosion

The Radical Progressive Left (RPL) and the Main Stream Media (MSM) are pushing the US towards creating suicidal animus with Russia by pushing the “Russian Collusion” scenario  between Trump and Putin.  The RPL and MSM are trying to build a firewall between Trump and Putin  communications which would lead to possible nuclear war between the World’s leading nuclear arsenals. 

The graph below shows that Russia sports approximately 7,000 nuclear warheads versus the US’s 6,800 nuclear warheads.  Of these total warheads, Russia maintains 1,910 ACTIVE (ready to launch) warheads compared to the US 1,800 ACTIVE (ready to launch) warheads.  

IF less than 5% of these warheads are detonated, 185 warheads, the world would cease to exist following a nuclear winter.  This is what the “Climate Change” morons on the RPL and the MSM are pushing Trump and Putin into!  This is beyond STUPID.

It is not out of the question that a misinterpreted action by the US or Russia could lead to a counter strike involving nuclear weaponry.  If Trump and Putin are not on speed dial, one or the other could launch a counter-strike which would be followed by retaliation by the other.  Soon, you could have 100-150 missiles flying!  This is especially true given the situation in Syria, Iran, North Korea, and Eastern Europe.  

The more the RPL and MSM push the Russian Collusion scenario, the more dangerous the world becomes.  I am sure that if Forest Gump would address this the pushing of the Russian Collusion scenario, he would tell the RPL and MSM that “Stupid is as Stupid Does”.

Limbaugh & Coulter Owe Trump an Apology

Image result for Limbaugh and coulter

Good Grief!

AFTER ONLY 100 DAYS OF TRUMP; 

following the 8 years of Neo-Con wars under Bush with exploding deficits (doubled all prior presidents including when Bush had majorities in both houses);

then 8 more years of unbridled Obama Socialism, aided and abetted by GOP Speakers Boehner and Ryan;

Limbaugh and Coulter act like Trump is the Conservative’s Benedict Arnold due to the pending approval of Ryan’s $1.1T Omnibus Bill.  I’ll bet, neither has even read the 1,600+ pages of this bill!

To Limbaugh and Coulter:

 We, the American Voters who supported Trump, are not as stupid as you make us out to be as you talk down to us by explaining what is and is not getting done by Trump and how things “should” work.  We know how screwed up our government is, and how screwed up Congress and our Congressional leaders are.  You need to trust our support for Trump as a means to help him to achieve the goals we share with him by increasing his ratings and not drive his ratings down, like you do every time you criticize him. 

Do you think attacking Trump, who is the only chance the American People have to regain some level of sovereignty over their country, will help drain the poop infested swamp and overturn and turnaround the disasters of the Clinton, Bush and Obama Regimes?  You will only depress Trump’s approval ratings.  The “K” Street lobbyist gutter snipes, the US Chamber of Commerce, the hard left and the main stream media would use Trump’s lower approval ratings to “prove” to the limp wristed Congress that they don’t have to support Trump’s agenda due to his low approval ratings!  This will kill our chances for a true reset of our nation and kill the return of power to the American People. 

Congress is the Swamp: 

Congress is the Constitutional entity solely responsible for creating legislation and appropriating our hard-earned money, PERIOD.  Congressional authority over legislation and the purse is absolute and the President has no CONSTITUTIONAL  sway over legislation other than through the people. 

Article I of the US Constitution: All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Image result for greedy K street lobbyists

Congress is the heart and soul of the swamp and it is filled with the cash from the K Street lobbyists, the US Chamber of Commerce, the hard left, and free advertising support from the main stream media.   If a congressman or woman wants to be on a committee, they have to commit to raising a specified amount of money for the party.  In order to do this, the Congressman or woman has to go to the K Street lobbyists or the US Chamber and prostitute themselves for money for future favors they can grant to the lobbyists.  If you want to be the committee head, guess what?  You have to raise more money for the party. 

Is this a great way to run a government or what!!!!  Not!

You, the voter don’t count at all.  Your pittance donations are sneered at by these boils-on-the-butt-of-humanity.  Can you or your district or even your State guarantee a Congressman or woman a $3 M salary for their retirement?  Lobbyists can and do!  This is why the campaign promises of representatives and senators are irrelevant.  Whatever the K Street lobbyists want, they get.  Congress is bought and paid for!

Conservative media is like the old Italian Firing Squad.  They form a circle, then put the targets, the American Taxpayers, in the middle of the circle.  The result, we all get killed by K Street Lobbyist, the hard left and the mainstream media… 

We need conservative mouth pieces to counteract the Main Stream Media and the Congress.  Understand the long game, Trump does.  Will he screw up?  Of Course!  The Trump supporters know this and are not limp wristed like Congress or “some” in the conservative media.
