Well, I think it’s safe to say we’re all pretty tired of seeing liberal idiots protesting in the streets, like that is going to change anything. I have no idea why these people think that if they walk far enough or long enough or cry loud enough that anyone with power is going to do anything about it. It didn’t happen when they protested in Ferguson. Oh, the DOJ may have given some lip service, but that was about all. And it won’t happen now. But what we want to do is turn our attention away from the attention seeking mob of do-nothings, and see what Donald Trump will REALLY do as president.
It will be the first time since 1928 when Herbert Hoover was elected that there will be a Republican president, a Republican house, and a Republican senate. It’s basically the same scenario the Dems had in 2008. So, for the first two years, you’re going to see a flurry of activity instead of Obama’s one-trick pony with Obamacare. Trump’s not that stupid. Here’s what’s going to happen.
Obama’s executive orders are going to go by the wayside quickly. Trump doesn’t need congress for that. He can do that at 3am with little more than a Twitter feed. That means that allowing abortion funding for international groups is history. Planned Parenthood better start holding meetings on how to re-figure their budget because that funding is going to get cut. And you better believe all immigration stuff that Obama tried to get through is toast as well.
Other things that will probably take some time are dismantling the Iran Nuclear Deal. Pulling out, or re-negotiating the Trans Pacific Partnership. Appointing a replacement to Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, and starting work on repealing Obamacare once the House and Senate can agree on something to replace it. That could be something as simple as lifting restrictions on crossing state lines while keeping the two best things about Obamacare in place; the elimination of the pre-existing condition clause, and allowing kids up to 26 years of age living with their parents to stay on their parents’ policies. Don’t think that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell aren’t working on that as you read this!
Then you’ve got immigration. Trump has long said that if you’re here illegally you’ve got to go and come back the right way to become a citizen. That’s not to say that he wouldn’t let those people stay in this country legally if they hadn’t committed crimes, as long as they remained aliens (not get citizenship). That may very well be the thing he has to negotiate to get it through the Senate. But Dems will be hard pressed to give up anything but a full amnesty for those 15 million people (and more are streaming across the border every day between now and January 20th!)
One thing I don’t think will happen anytime soon is the closing of Guantanamo Bay. I think those terrorists there had better get very comfortable. They’re going to be there for a while.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
