Trump’s Presidency

Now that (ARE YOU KIDDING ME??) we won, we’ve discussed this before, but who do you think will be on his cabinet, and his closest advisors?

Who’s on the Supreme Court?

What will be the Top THREE things Trump will do first…realistically…?

Michael Moore’s calling for impeachment, and idiots are in the streets burning flags and protesting.  Where were the Republicans when we were SO upset, completely heart broken that Obama’d won, a man of almost no experience and a platform that was filled with nothing but stupidity?  Did we burn flags, march, and threaten impeachment?  Such different people we are, huh?  Thank God.  But wait….did you see THIS?  Yup…barely a mention of the flag burners, but this is headline news!  They represent US in NO WAY.  Thank GOD we know the truth.

And, please God..TAKE HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT AWAY…this is SO unprofessional and stupid…always rising to the bait.   ugh

    My rant last nite revised his “first 100 days” to-do list. First day priorities were to get a true conservative in there to replace Scalia, IMMEDIATELY. Many of the other things he wants and needs to do would be held up in the high court without a solid 5-4.

    Second, cancel ALL funding to sanctuary cities. Clear message.

    Third, get rid of Comey & Lynch ASAP. They’re contaminated and demonstrably unreliable.

    Fourth, suspend all aid to nations who consistently vote against us in the UN.

    Fifth, suspend immigration from any nation from which non-vetted unknowns can enter the U.S.

    Sixth, begin work on rescinding the Iran nuke “deal” and re-imposing sanctions.

    Seventh, direct LEOs and courts in all states, territories, and districts to begin immediately deporting aliens who are known felons.

    I’d also like to see charges of obstruction brought against Harry Reid. And the best punishment for the Clintons would be to confiscate all monies and holdings of their “foundation” and distribute them amongst certified charities.

    My list is much longer (of course) and addresses such things as the tax code, the VA, fossil-fuel regulations, climate change, cyber warfare, hints of withdrawing from the UN, eliminating redundancy in federal agencies and programs, and some kind of overhaul of the ACA.

    Simply repealing ACA would trigger lawsuits clogging courts and chaos crashing hospitals. But in the end, we need to eliminate ridiculously punitive figures for malpractice and other suits involving personal “injuries” such as the hot coffee thing at MacDonald’s. Health care needs to be put back into the private sector where competition will regulate prices naturally, but the costs MUST come down for ordinary tests and procedures, and malpractice insurance drives up those fees more than anything else.

    Oh, and I’d like for a black ops raid to kidnap Kim Fat Un and put him in Gitmo.

    Cruz on the court, Bolton as SecState. I’d say Christie for AttyGen, but he’d drag a lotta baggage in with him.

  2. Maybe it’s not so important who he hires as who he fires.

    Knock, knock. Who’s there? Dwayne. Dwayne who? Dwayne the swamp, I’m dwowning.

  4. Silverfiddle says:

    I’m with Ed.

    Clean out the Justice Department–The stench of corruption is overwhelming.

    Restore the good reputations of the good men and women at the FB I by demanding the resignation of Director James Comey and his #2 Andrew mcCabe. Their shameful performances have unfairly besmirched the reputation of the FBI and the career professionals who serve there. Comey and McCabe pulled off the near-impossible task of making both the Democrats and the Republicans think they were working for the other party. Flush them.

  5. Silverfiddle says:

    Trump’s <a href = "http://www.npr.org/2016/11/09/501451368/here-is-what-donald-trump-wants-to-do-in-his-first-100-days"<contract, which he rolled out in Gettysburg, is a pretty nice roadmap, although I don’t really care about term limits and it’ll never happen, Keep reading down, though, and there’s some good stuff in there.

    I just hope all the Movement Conservative, bloviators and pundits don’t start yapping and dogpiling him before it even gets going. Government is messy work, and propagandists from all sides will be blaring out every foible, stumble, false start and perceived act of treason.

    ACA, as bocopro said, is not a simple thing you can simply pull the plug on. They will have to do it smartly, and in many stages. I can just hear the “Burn Down the Government!” rightwing activists now, screaming when ACA is still standing on Day 2.

    Patience, my friends. Yes, we cannot go back to sleep, and we gotta birddog those GOP politicians, including El Donaldo, but let’s stay focues on the big picture, keep it all in perspective, and realize nobody ever gets everything he or she wants.

  6. Kid says:

    Heard Mike Hucklebee make an interesting statement. He said when he was Governor, he demanded a resignation letter the day he appointed someone and filed it away in case it was ever needed. That would be a good thing for Trump to do..

    Anyway, immediately fire all the federal prosecutors like bill clinton did day one, Fire all the federal management and replace them with people charged to fix it all and with clear timelines and performance metrics. FBI,CIA,HS, IRS, Immigration, all of it becuase none of them have been doing their job the last 8 years. I’d like to see people like lois lerner get proisecuted. Oh, and assassinate geroge soros like they did Scalia.

  7. Kid says:

    PS – I believe democrats are doing some if not all of these attacks on moslem, black and latino masquerading as Trump supporters.

  8. While Trump has a plethora of great choices, for various posts, I hope he chooses John Bolton for SEC. of STATE.

  9. fredd says:

    You would hope that the opposition would behave civilly after defeat. But this is not the ‘loyal opposition’ of times not all that long ago. These are different people. They are an amalgam of miscreants, thugs, criminals and ne-er-do-wells who will do and say anything, legal or illegal, if it advances their cause.

    And when their agenda is thwarted, they do not react the way you and I do, Z. We face an opposition that will break the law, and will obviously support an out-and-out criminal to champion their causes.

    We can expect nothing less than an all-out effort to undermine the newly elected leader of the U.S. by these thugs. Call them hypocrites, call them anything you wish, but do not call them patriots. They are out to destroy our country the way it was founded. We must oppose them at every turn, and not consider them our moral equivalents, as they are not.

    Most of them, anyway. Sure, there are a small group of ‘loyal opposition’ folk, but they are now in the minority of the Democrat ranks.

  10. bocopro says:

    Remember all those “whitelash” riots when Soetoro won the election in ’08?

    And all those fires and shootings and riots in the streets when Romney lost in ’12?

    Yeah, neither do I.

    But I do remember this quote:

    “Elections have consequences. […] You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Go out there and win an election.”

    Barack Hussein Obama

  11. geeez2014 says:

    BIG HEADLINE TODA: LENA DUNHAM “It wasn’t supposed to go this way”

    WHO CARES WHAT SHE THINKS, FOLKS? And can you IMAGINE the loathing and criticism that would have happened had Republicans EVER reacted like this to the presidency of ANY DEMOCRAT? The media’s barely covering the protests in comparison.

    Bocopro…obama actually said “Elections have consequences…at the end of the day, I WON” amazing.

    Everybody: They’re bringing in therapy dogs to comfort our poor college kids who had tests canceled because they’re so bereft….they’re getting counseling, etc. At Cornell there is a “Cry In”…And these are kids we hoped could defend our country if need be?
    Kennedy just said her child’s teacher was sobbing in class..

    THanks for ALL the comments..great stuff!!

  12. geeez2014 says:

    A wise friend of mine I watched the returns with said “Funny…the left makes so many of the right feel they have to keep their mouths shut….well, it you want to know what’s really happening, let us talk…you’d have KNOWN Trump was going to win!” HA! It backfired.
    Or should I say WHITEFIRED?

  13. Kid says:

    What an unbelievable difference in college aged kids today verus 1970, 80 or even 90.. Unreal. They must have some real dipsticks as parents.

  14. @Kid,
    “They must have some real dipsticks as parents.”

    YOU BET; they’re all Liberal DemocRATS! What could we expect?

  15. bocopro says:

    I had that very discussion today about young people. As I told the guy, I cannot fault youth for their youthful ignorance, but I CAN and DO fault their athlete role models, Hollywood role models, singer role models, teachers, and professors for their mind-boggling ignorance of how the world works.

    As a young man, I had many more liberal than conservative leanings. In fact, I was living proof of the old axiom “if you’re not a liberal at 25 you have no heart, and if you’re not a conservative at 35 you have no brain,” which has been attributed to everyone from George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill to Will Rogers to Anonymous.

    By the time I had daughters who were becoming young women, I realized that many of the people in the world are savage and evil and that socialism just don’t work on a national scale. For the life of me I can’t understand how someone like Bernie Sanders, apparently a well-educated and thoughtful man, fails to note the abject failures of that system in virtually every major nation state in which it’s been tried: Venezuela, Cuba, Soviet Union, East Germany, France, China. As Maggie Thatcher reminded us, the concept looks good on paper, but sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.

    I don’t pretend to be any more intelligent than Hillary, or Bernie, or Soetoro, but I can read, and the facts are there — failure after failure after failure — but they keep saying that it’ll work IF we can only get the right people in charge, and (insert name here) is the one. Look at every bankrupt and failing city in the US and you’ll find it’s been run by Democrats for at least 3 decades. Sheeesh! Doesn’t a $20 TRILLION national debt ring any clangers for those guys?

    It’s just like this Islam thing that’s going on. Good-hearted people in prosperous nations are welcoming Muslims as a cheap work force to clean their commodes, haul away their trash, do all their dirty jobs, and behave themselves while they’re at it. Then they watch their citizens being mugged, their streets becoming dangerous, their daughters being raped, their churches being converted to mosque safehouses for terrorists, and they place the blame on all the wrong factors.

    I’m Caucasian, and I’m STILL waiting for my White Privilege ship to come in. Nobody GAVE me promotions in the military: I had to perform to high standards to get recommended to take a competitive exam and then PASS the damned thing before even being CONSIDERED for promotion. Nobody GAVE me a commission; I just made a name for myself by going that extra length to do more of a better job than the guys around me and finally got noticed for it. Nobody GAVE me a college degree. I had to read the books, attend the classes, write the papers, and never once threw, caught, kicked, hit, or spiked a ball in the process, except on the golf course, where I had to pay for the “privilege” of playing.

    My wife is non-white, and our kids are hybrids, and they certainly have no privilege other than those afforded everyone in this country by the sacrifices of guys who gave their time, their loyalty, and sometimes their lives in defense of its Constitution.

    Feh! on their delicate sensibilities, their self-loathing, their whiny need for safe spaces. When they finally crawl out of Mom’s basement with their degree in fine arts that it took them 6 years to acquire and enter the real world at the age of 28 or so, they’ll be completely unprepared to succeed in it, much less pay back those student loans on a salary for asking customers “Would you like fries with that?” even AT $15/hour.

    I weep for my grandchildren.

  16. Mal says:

    Again, I agree with you, Bocopro, about how seemingly educated folks can still buy into Socialism when proof of its failure is evident, if they have been paying any attention. I guess having an MS or PHD behind their name doesn’t assure them of possessing common sense, does it?

  17. Mal,
    I once knew a guy, a degreed engineer, who had many wise things to say. My favorite was: “The acquisition of uncommon knowledge , inhibits the application of common sense.” I think that all too often, lately , we see this on display, ubiquitously!

  18. I’d like to see Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich take key roles in Trump’s administration. Sarah Palin, too. And Chris Christie. General Mike Flynn. Maybe even David Petraeus. Absolutely, Dr. Ben Carson. And Herman Cain. Senator Jeff Sessions. Mike Huckabee. Rick Perry. Bobby Jindal. Judge Jeanine Pirro, too. Carol M. Swain! Dinesh D’Souza! Judge Andrew Napolitano. Michele Bachmann. Kellyanne Conway. I’m sure I’ve left out a few.

  19. bocopro says:

    FW — only ones I’d be suspicious of are Pirro and Napolitano. Frankly, I consider Bachmann a bit of a loon, and I’d really prefer Giuliani be more of an advisor than head of an agency or department. In fact, he’s already said many times that he’s not only NOT looking for a job, but is quite happy doing what he’s doing now.

    But what I’d REALLY like to see him do is eliminate a whole lotta gummint jobs, beginning with the Parasites of the Potomac.

    JMB — I had a CO once who’d been an enlisted man. One of his favorite sayings about education would come up with ensigns and ringknockers — “He trips over his textbooks.”

    He also cautioned his junior officers not to “overthink” things and not to let their education get in the way of their leadership. He told me that he thought I read too much SciFi.

    Funny…this morning I almost posted “Christie’s not going to be as involved as he’d hope” but didn’t because it’s info from someone who knows and I figured I’d better shut up.
    Just got home and saw the headline above…Christie’s not involved.
    He’s not that esteemed, let me put it that way.
    He MIGHT get something, but….notsomuch. And methinks Pence will be WAY more involved than most VP’s…or he’d not have taken the job…that’s my own prognostication.
    Sayeth the Z 🙂

  21. geeez2014 says:

    I got an email today from a young family guy I know….here’s my favorite part “…..on my pick up and deliveries to the housekeepers and staff the ones that were secretly for Trump, when I got to their house’s on Wednesday, said ‘John John you were right! He WON!’ they had tears flowing!!!”

    These are HISPANIC housekeepers and staff, folks…..TEAR FOR TRUMP!! Amazing stuff.

  22. Kid says:

    I saw where Guliani was applying for the job in the media. Said he knew more about the intelligence agencies/Dept of justice than anyone else.

    Anyway, some names that come to mind in no particular order: Rudy Guliani, Ted Cruz, Trey Gowdy, Michele Backmann, Allen West Joe Arpaio (needs a job now and maybe a pardon too for Doing His Job! [I’ll start a whitehouse.gov petition on this one if nothing good is happening for him come late January]), John Bolton, Carly Fiorina, Bobby Jindahl, Rick Rescola (oh, he sacrificed himself in the towers trying to save people 9-11-2001)…David Clarke, Bill Whittle !!!!!, Scott Walker, Rick Perry could fit in, Jan Brewer, Nigel Farage, Top guy at the NRA, Ted Nugent, Chuck Norris, Clint Eastwood, James Woods, Gary Sinese, Dennis Miller, Jon Voight, Michael Reagan, Dennis Prager, Zaza Gabor (Whoa how’d she get in there? must a been one of those every 10 second things..), Newt Gingrich – just off the top of my head. Oh, and anyone and everyone who comments at your blog Z.

    I know there must be many more patriots that we/I have not been introduced to as well as Solid Constitutionalists for the court, and I have no idea who they are. There must be more Scalia’s, More Alito’s. More who understand what the purpose of the court is.

  23. Mal says:

    I also thought about sheriff Joe being offered a job, Kid. I hope Donald finds a spot for him. He might be a bit too controversial. esp. at this time.

  24. geeez2014 says:

    Kid! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD WHAT A LIST! FABULOUS!
    (ZsaZsa Gabor? HA!!) And yes, EVERYONE who comments here and at your blog…MUST be in! Bill Whittle…good! Your list, looking again, is JUST WONDERFUL! It GRACES my blog, thanks!

    Mal, ya…I’d wait on Sheriff Joe for a while!

  25. Kid says:

    Mal, I think Sheriff Joe fits in perfectly with Trump’s stated immigration crackdown. Plus it would put more TNT between the ears of the libs. Gotta be good.

  26. Kid says:

    Z, Thank you so much. I’m humbled.

  27. geeez2014 says:

    Kid,I LOVED it. And ya, Sheriff Joe would DEFINITELY be TNT!

    TOMORROW I’m posting one of THE best, if not THE best, articles on the Trump win I’ve read…SO GOOD!! NOT written by ME, of course!!

  28. Baysider says:

    He ran (originally) and gained support on immigration. Take public steps that have some teeth immediately.
    Agree with bocopro: suspend immigration and federal funds to sanctuary cities.
    Reverse some terrible executive orders.
    Bolton as Sec State, like JMB said.
    Please God, Janice Rogers Brown on the court. She’s in her 60’s now, a deficit, but her incisive constitutional mind would give us 10 years of desperately-needed judicial sanity. How we STILL miss that woman in California.

    Kid, Sherif Joe harped so on Obama’s birther issue. His mother was an American citizen. It was always a dead issue. He’s tainted by that, and too bad because he takes border security seriously.

  29. Baysider; It’s a dead issue, but as to his mother being an American citizen:
    ”When one parent was a U.S. citizen and the other a foreign national, the U.S. citizen parent must have resided in the U.S. for a total of 10 years prior to birth of the child with FIVE of the years after the age of 14.”
    Criteria not met.

  30. Kid says:

    Baysider, Trump was also a birther. hilrod makes Al Capone look like a lemonade stand and the creature was this far away from being in the white house. Granted we like high ground but still. Some would not get a pass, but I believe Joe would get a pass.

    Also,If city mayors are violating immigration law, why can’t we put those suckers in jail ?

  31. Baysider says:

    Ed, I’m not sure about that. But I’m glad you added it, because it made me look up the history and now I’m better informed. There is nothing to suggest his mother didn’t live in the US according to these criteria, though.

    Giuliani is 72. Why would he want the hassle of a cabinet post? Meanwhile, there are lefties still hoping for rogue electors.

  32. Kid says:

    Baysider, Rudy is still motivated. The moslem vermin came to His town and killed 3000 people. I’d be motivated until I took my last breath. I’d want to be in a position to do something about these savages until my last breath. He looks healthy to me. I’d put him on the team absolutely.

  33. Baysider says:

    Just caught an interesting comment from Victor Davis Hanson. He was talking to a local Mexican-American farmer who liked Trump. One of the things he likes is that nobody knows what Trump will say at any time so they’re careful about him. He can come back with megatonnage beyond the initial provocation which creates a sense of deterrence.

    Have to think about that one – but it’s an interesting take on unpredictability. Perhaps in distinction from bland, polished politico-babble answers. ??

  34. Kid says:

    Non-PC is a big part of Trumps appeal. PC = Submission and Forfiture of the 1st Amendment.

  35. Baysider says:

    I guess I’m showing my own age, Kid. Good point again.

    That is a amazing video. Now THERE is a ‘woman of courage’ award in the making.

  36. Kid says:

    Baysider, I’ll show my age in a moment or maybe tomorrow.

    Sorry Z, moslems have no positive messages for me. I don’t believe a single one of them, and even if I did, the message of one or even a million would be drowned out by at least 1.4 billion of the others. They can’t even contain themselves from slaughtering each other. There is not a molecule of me that would consider even one of them to have a positive value.

  37. geeez2014 says:

    Geraldo is on the rerun of O’Reilly tonight. He’s on several shows on FOX. Could someone tell me who wants to hear anything Geraldo says? ANYBODY?

  38. bocopro says:

    Geraldo is right about half the time. But when he’s wrong, he’s catastrophically wrong. Kinda like Juan Williams, but more feisty and cocky about his opinions. I’ve stopped listening to both of ’em.

  39. I heard him this AM. I don’t know if it was a recording or live. All I could think of, however, was: When are you going-over to CNN and taking Shepard Smith with you?

  40. Kid says:

    Baysider, fwiw – I learn something just about every time you jot something down here. I hope my objections were not viewed in a way that would take that away frm you.

    On the moslem thing – Someone has to convince me that when moslems gain political majority in places around America. (Be a long time before it would be nationwide unless they convince America they’re harmless) that they won’t vote in Sharia law and America will be captive audience to women being stoned in the public square, or little boys having their hand chopped off becuase they stole a grap at a farmer’s market, and all the rest of the savagery that this brings.

    Unless we take definitive action to ban islam in America it will happen and women like this one will be a powerless to stop at as 90% of Germans could have stopped the Holocaust.

  41. SF,
    I can just hear the “Burn Down the Government!” rightwing activists now, screaming when ACA is still standing on Day 2.

    People will likely overreact when Trump tweaks his campaign promises because of all the past betrayals. Justified paranoia? Yes, to a certain extent.

  42. Mal says:

    BOTTOM LINE……..THERE’S NO SATISFYING THE LEFT. PERIOD!
