Trump’s Announcement To America About What He Really Wants For His B-Day Leaves Dems Disgusted

Here’s 10 reasons why!

Published

on

Things have changed greatly in the past year and a half. Even the small things are now totally different and in a way, normal. After having one of the most successful months in his time as president, yesterday was President Donald Trump’s 72nd birthday. And what did he do? He worked all day, but in the morning he calmly walked out on the stunning White House lawn to talk with FOX and Friends host Steve Doocy for about a half an hour.

The lengthy conversation covered everything from Russia and James Comey all the way to trade and NAFTA. But what was perhaps the most telling part of the whole conversation was President Trump’s reply when asked what he wanted for his birthday. He just looked at Steve and said: “All I want for my birthday is for America to be successful.” That comment might have caused a controversy among several members of the Democrat Party, as there are a few particular people who are highly against President Trump and his accomplishments.

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and remember what President Trump has accomplished. Here are some of his greatest accomplishments so far, as provided by The Hill. Unfortunately, some of the accomplishments might have irritated a few members of the Democrat Party as the list contains items that might be considered rolling back things done by former President Barack Obama. Many of Obama’s supporters may not agree with a few items on this list.

However, President Trump wants America to be successful and this is his way of making that happen during his time as President of the United States. With the economy and unemployment doing well, it seems like Trump’s strategies are working very well for Americans.

“1. The tax-cut bill

Trump capped off 2017 with his first major legislative victory — the passage of the Republicans’ tax-cut bill, which slashes the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent and reduces individual rates as well as implements some key breaks.

It’s the biggest tax legislation to be approved by Congress since 1986, and would be significant if that’s all it did.

The fact that it also eliminated ObamaCare’s mandate that individuals buy insurance and opens the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling — something several GOP administrations had tried but failed to do — makes it truly historic.

2. Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court

Trump’s biggest early victory came when the Senate, in April, confirmed Neil Gorsuch to succeed the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.

Gorsuch’s appointment marked the end of a bitter struggle between Democrats and Republicans over the vacant seat. It was also a victory for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who for nearly a year blocked former President Obama’s pick to replace Scalia from getting even a hearing to sit on the court.

The move also came as Trump aims to reshape the federal judiciary with a host of other conservative nominations. The Senate confirmed 12 of Trump’s federal appeals court judges in 2017, a record for a president’s first year in office.

3. Roll-back of regulations

Trump signed an executive order cutting regulations for small businesses and moved forward with plans to repeal the Clean Power Plan, one of Obama’s signature acts as president. Trump has also overseen moves to expand oil drilling in the Arctic and Gulf of Mexico and granted a permit to the Keystone XL pipeline previously rejected by Obama.

Trump vowed to reduce regulations he argued were strangling the economy, and he’s taken important strides to do so in the wake of opposition from congressional Democrats, who argue the president’s actions on climate are hurting America’s standing in the world. Local governments led by Democrats have acted to reverse Trump’s efforts on the Paris climate accords.

4. The travel ban

Trump ran on a platform of tougher immigration enforcement, both to protect American jobs and national security. A week into his presidency, he took one of his most controversial steps, banning most travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the United States.

The move triggered protests across the country and court fights, but, by the end of the year, a version of Trump’s ban was left standing.

Trump also has taken steps to increase border security and has seen a drop in arrests on the border, a possible sign of reduced entries.

He stepped up raids on immigrants in the country illegally and oversaw a surge in arrests across the country. The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement says the agency plans to take an even more aggressive approach next year.

Trump hasn’t been able to make progress on building a wall on the Mexican border, however.

5. Declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel

In a radical departure from decades of foreign policy, Trump announced that the U.S. would formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin the process of moving its embassy to the contested holy city. The move signified one of Trump’s boldest statements to the international community, and, specifically, the United Nations, which he has frequently criticized.

6. Withdrawal from Paris climate deal

Trump followed through on one of his major campaign promises when he announced in June that the U.S. would leave the Paris climate deal reached under Obama. While there have since been conflicting reports on the administration’s current stance on the agreement, the move fulfilled Trump’s pledge to tackle one of Obama’s signature achievements and take a tougher stance against the international community.

7. Pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership

Trump began his presidency by carrying out another key promise, withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive trade deal with Asia he had called a “potential disaster for our country.” He has said his administration will secure new trade deals with America’s Asian allies, though firm details have yet to emerge.

Meanwhile, the administration is at work trying to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico. A new round of negotiations are slated to be held in January, and it’s possible Trump could decide to pull the U.S. from that deal as well.

8. Roll-back of some of Obama’s Cuba policies

Trump followed up on his pledge to roll back Obama’s opening up of relations with Cuba, tightening travel and commercial ties with the communist island. He also placed new financial restrictions on Havana, amid concerns over a series of bizarre “sonic attacks” targeting U.S. diplomats in the country.

While the moves were seen as a clear crackdown by Trump on rapprochement with Cuba, much of Obama’s policies toward Havana essentially remain intact.

9. Moving to repeal Obama’s net neutrality rules

In another blow to regulations enacted under Obama, the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal its landmark net neutrality rules this month. The move drew ire from Democrats, consumer groups and tech companies, but was seen as a major win for advocates of less government oversight.

10. Fighting — and further degrading — ISIS

Largely following Obama’s strategy, Trump dealt major blows to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, forcing the terrorist group to retreat from its two self-declared capitals: Mosul and Raqqa, located in Iraq and Syria, respectively. Trump also expanded the military’s authority to carry out air strikes in the Middle East, a factor some experts credit for his administration’s progress against terrorism in the region.”

President Trump each and every day proves he loves America. He works on his birthday, just like most of us have to do, and he loves his country as well.

Michelle’s Closest Allies Just Turned On Her Hard After Trump Exposes Her Huge Lie

Michelle Obama will be furious over this.

Published

on

During Barack Obama’s eight years in office, I did not consider Michelle Obama to be any sort of gentle soul. She is very attuned to political maneuvering and very skilled at playing the game. No one can accuse Michelle Obama of ever being ‘soft’. She learned politics through the Chicago machine much like her husband did. As I have understood it, Michelle was looking forward to hitting the campaign trail to help her closest Democratic allies. Alas, it looks as though she will not get the chance if things pan out the way they appear among Democrats.

One of Michelle Obama’s favorite sayings is: “When they go low, we go high.” Typically, that phrase has come to mean that if someone plays dirty, you take the high road and stay above the muck. That’s not exactly how the Obamas, the Clintons or the Democrats, in general, have ever played at politics though. And now with President Trump’s approval ratings soaring ever higher, Democrats are turning to Michael Avenatti and his call for the party to get more aggressive in the Trump era and hit back harder than the GOP when responding to attacks. Avenatti is the infamous attorney for adult-film star Stormy Daniels. He’s considering a run for the presidency in 2020. That would be highly entertaining and totally doomed. Avenatti’s motto is: “When they go low, I say hit back harder.” It lacks the diplomacy of Michelle’s motto but covers the mood of the party.

Avenatti is obviously giving a nod to Michelle Obama with his new mantra. Democrats are basically referring to Michelle’s slogan as ineffectual and that it should be trashed and replaced with a more aggressive strategy. President Trump and his loyal band of ‘deplorables’ long ago exposed the falsehood of Michelle Obama’s favorite slogan. Now, the Democrats are taking a different tack in order to fight President Trump and try and beat him in the next presidential race. They have turned on Michelle Obama hard. Former Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) claims Avenatti is: “tapping into a Democratic rage that Trump must be defeated and it doesn’t matter how. They think the low blow beat the high ground in 2016,” Israel said, adding that Trump has created “an electorate that is angrier, nastier and more desperate.”

If Trump’s followers are angry it is because of a long history of corruption in government that has harmed Americans and their country in general. The ones that I see getting more desperate and more violent come from the left in the form of Antifa and other radicals. All of that will be used along with rough and tumble politics in the 2020 primary season. The Democrats are publicly saying they are taking the gloves off and plan to get down and dirty in politics. “We have no other choice,” claimed one political strategist who has been having preliminary conversations with candidates about running for the presidency. “You can’t k**l him with kindness. That doesn’t work. So you have to go the other way.”

This is not a new concept to the Democrats and Avenatti isn’t the first to talk tough against President Trump. The Democrats have been looking for a bare-knuckle candidate for some time now that could take on Trump in a fight. “This notion that you go high or go low is a false choice, it’s become a misnomer,” Philippe Reines, a longtime adviser to Hillary Clinton stated last month. “Democrats are going to want to see someone with moxie, they’re going to want to see absolute contempt for Trump,” said Reines. This is a guy who actually played the part of President Trump in mock debates in 2016 to prepare Clinton. His track record and his advice leave something to be desired here.

Nevertheless, suddenly the Democrats seem smitten with Avenatti. Julian Zelizer, a professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University, wrote a piece for CNN entitled: “Avenatti is right: Democrats need to fight fire with fire.” Sounds like a call to violence and revolution to me. Zelizer is bluntly saying that Democrats can go with a traditional or a nontraditional candidate, “but what they need is an incredibly tough partisan fighter. Given the state of the GOP and the nature of Trumpian politics, the candidate will need to really pack a big political punch,” he said. “It doesn’t mean getting into the gutter but it does mean hitting back hard and being able to do so on Twitter and the cable news universe that now sets the rules of engagement.”

Gee, didn’t Biden offer to take Trump out behind a school or something and fight him? What about Biden?

From ABC:

“A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,'” Biden said. “They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said ‘no.’ I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.'”

“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden continued. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete. Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room.”

I could give you a long list of Democrats who have threatened to fight Trump, but you get the point. If threats and name calling are the best they can do, as well as making baseless accusations, then the left doesn’t have any kind of punch that has staying power.

Not all Democrats agree with this approach, but enough do to make it a strong possibility this next time around. Patti Solis Doyle, who is a Democratic strategist that served as Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign manager, said the party needs to stand up to Trump. “Does he need to be called out? Do we need to see his tax returns? Absolutely,” Solis Doyle blustered. “We need to be strong to deliver attacks on him. But I’m not sure that someone who is remarkably similar to Donald Trump is the answer,” she added, referring to Avenatti. To be honest, it is my personal opinion that the Democrats have candidates among them that make Trump look like a choir boy. As for fighting him, what I don’t see is one strong enough to ever take the president on and win.

As the Democrats lurch ever further to the left, even Michelle Obama isn’t favored anymore. They want someone who is radical and will just come out and say it. They want someone who will profess disdain and hatred of President Trump. They may think someone like Avenatti is a street brawler, but he’s really not. And he does not appeal to what is important to Americans these days: jobs, economics, military might, secure borders, lower taxes, supporting our police and love of country. Those things are what matter to American voters, not socialism with all its entitlements and governmental control. Until the left learns that hard lesson, they will never truly prevail. But then again, if they learn that lesson, they won’t be leftists anymore.

Democratic strategists are predicting that when it comes to the presidential contest and Trump, Avenatti’s strategy and rhetoric is likely to win out over Obama’s. “You can’t play nice with a bully,” one strategist said. “And that’s putting it nicely.” And the left will never learn that they are in fact the real bullies here and Americans see it. Antifa and socialists will not win elections. The ‘deplorables’ are not violent… they are patriotic which is a concept lost on the left.

Trump Just Dropped Big Surprise On Maxine Waters On Her 80th Birthday

Published

on

We have all seen how the crazed Congresswoman from the looney state of California has acted since Donald Trump beat her good friend Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections.

From calling for President Trump’s impeachment for no valid reason to even going as far as calling for people to violently harass anyone who is involved with the Trump Administration. A few months ago she even told a group of her supporters in California that they need to start showing up wherever Trump Administration Officials show up. And if they see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, or at a gasoline station, to get out and create a crowd in order to push back on them.

“And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents,” she continued

But yesterday, for Maxine Waters 80th birthday The Daily Caller reported that in typical President Donald Trump fashion, he struck back in the best way he knows how.

President Trump frequently refers to Maxine Waters as the “leader of the Democrat party.” Especially after she told people to start harassing and violently confronting those in his administration.

But here is the most interesting fact about good ole “Auntie Maxine” as the foolish voters in her district call her. In the midst of a national financial catastrophe back in 2008 Waters actually used her position as a senior member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee to force Treasury officials to meet with OneUnited Bank. All the rime never disclosing that her husband held stock in the bank. Yet because she is a Democrat, and from California, she is still free to run for office and spew her hatred.

Here is more on Maxine Water’s corruption via The Daily Beast:

“When CREW named Waters one of its “most corrupt” politicians in 2011, the group focused on her role in a federal bailout for OneUnited Bank, on whose board her husband served and in which he owned a sizable stake, during the 2008 banking crisis. Waters arranged a meeting with the Treasury Department at which OneUnited representatives sought federal bailout money. The bank eventually received more than $12 million from the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

That led to an ethics investigation into Waters’ involvement in setting up the meeting. Investigators eventually concluded that she had disclosed her financial ties to the bank, recused herself from decisions involving it, and believed the Treasury meeting would involve representatives from minority-owned banks generally, not just OneUnited (PDF). The Ethics Committee found that she had not violated any rules barring the use of one’s position for financial gain.

But that was not the case for Waters’ then-chief of staff Mikael Moore, who also happens to be her grandson. Investigators found that Moore had taken actions “unambiguously intended to assist OneUnited specifically.” He received an official reprimand.

Moore’s employment in Waters’ office raised issues of its own.

Waters told The Daily Beast that Moore had not violated any rules, and that is true. House ethics rules designed to combat nepotism in the legislature prohibit members of Congress from hiring most family members. But grandchildren were not on the list of prohibited hires when Waters gave Moore the top post in her Washington office. In early 2008, before the ethics committee began probing Waters’ role in the OneUnited bailout, CREW asked House administrators to address that apparent oversight.

“Given the extensive nature of the list, it seems clear that Congress intended for federal employees to avoid hiring relatives, even those with whom they might not have a close relationship such as first cousins,” wrote Melanie Sloan, then CREW’s executive director, in a letter to the House Administration Committee at the time (PDF). She specifically cited Waters’ hiring of Moore.

In an interview earlier this month, Waters rejected any suggestion that her past run-ins with congressional ethics authorities and watchdog groups had any bearing on her Trump remarks, and suggested that criticism of her ethics record—and reporting on that criticism—was an attempt to insulate the president from scrutiny.

“This story that you’re trying to put together, to somehow make it look as if I am as bad as a Trump, and I do bad things, and that somehow I don’t deserve to criticize him, is not credible,” she told The Daily Beast.

“I’d like you to think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it and I’d like you think about whether or not you’re trying to maybe protect the president somewhat, cleanse him a little bit, make him look a bit better, to make it look as if other people don’t have the right to point these things out about him and other people who you make it look as if they have the same kinds of problems,” Waters added. “I want you to think about that and think about whether or not this is a story you really want to do.”

She denied any equivalence between her own past ethical controversies and those dogging the president.

“If you’re trying to compare me with Trump, it’s totally different,” Waters said.

Pay to Play?

Moore is not the only Waters family member to benefit from the congresswoman’s position. Waters’ daughter Karen has pulled in nearly $650,000 for running a “slate mailer” operation for Waters’ campaign that ethics groups have described as an end-run around campaign finance limits.

For a fee of between $250 and $45,000, candidates and political groups can get Waters’ official backing. The fee earns them a spot on the slate mailers, campaign mailers that promote Waters allies who pay her campaign committee for those mailers. Karen Waters runs the slate mailer operation, and her consulting company is paid to manage it.

“All of that money [from endorsee fees] goes into the production of [the slate mailers] and she is paid for doing that—a very nominal fee when you compare it with the campaign consultants in Los Angeles,” Waters told The Daily Beast of the practice.

She stressed that the slate mailers are entirely above board legally—Waters sought and received official approval for the slate mailers from the Federal Election Commission in 2004—but as with her employment of a family member, ethics groups say the issue isn’t strict legality so much as the spirit of applicable campaign rules.”

President Trump is right, if you combine her rhetoric, along with her unethical behavior, she embodies everything the Democrat Party of today stands for.
