Update: Winning. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
There’s a new song in town. The mocking “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” was Donald J. Trump’s campaign theme song. The defiant “Heart of Stone” as in “you’ll never break” heralded the beginning of the Trump years at the inauguration. Now there is a new President Trump theme song which demonstrates the difference between Barack the Boob compared to get-it-done Don.
Today, Betsy Devos is the new Secretary of Education after the latest 24 hour prank by Obama Dimocrats intent on denial. Tomorrow Jeff Sessions will be confirmed as the new Attorney General to head the Department of (finally!) Justice. Tonight there will be courtroom antics on the West Coast regarding President Trump’s “extreme vetting” of passengers from a bunch of “terrorist friendly” countries. Four of these countries are so debased they don’t even have American embassies due to lack of security.
Later in the month there will be further filibuster antics by Obama Dimocrats to block President Trump’s choice, Neil Gorsuch, from the Supreme Court. This spasm of “resistance” by the deluded Obama Dimocrats will also fail.
This week though, the attention will be on the President Trump temporary “travel ban” to Make America Safe Again. While others chew on their toe nails with worry, we’ll be dabbing some color on our fingernails. Why? Because no matter what happens today or tomorrow President Trump will win all these fights. We’ll lay it all out below. But first, let’s listen to that new President Trump theme song because it explains so much about why Barack the Boob failed while President Trump is all success:
Yeah, time is on Trump’s side, yes it is. And don’t think for a second that President Trump doesn’t know it.
Barack the Boob ran for president having done nothing but self advancement in his life. Barack the Boob was a lost boy when he was inaugurated. Barack the Boob was entirely befuddled as to how to run the vast American government because Barack the Boob had never run any business or large organization. Never. During the campaign Barack the Boob tried to sell the notion that his campaign was a vast enterprise and Barack the Boob staked his silly claim to experience running a large enterprise on his campaign! It was a silly claim. Barack the Boob proved just how silly, the moment he bungled the oath of office and continued giving speeches after he occupied the White House.
Barack the Boob never ran a large enterprise so he did not know what to do other than invite sports and movie stars to the White House. Consider the dire consequences if Barack the Boob had known what he was doing.
All that immigration stuff he tried to do at the end of his term might have succeeded if Barack the Boob had done it earlier in his term and known what to do. That broken filibuster on lower court judges would have been so much more successful if the filibuster had been broken early in Barack the Boob’s term. On issue after issue, Barack the Boob struck too late, too stupidly, and therefore failed. Obama failed because he should never have been president due to lack of experience, lack of love of country, lack of a coherent world view.
President Trump will not fail. President Trump knows how to run a vast enterprise so he will not fail. Neil Gorsuch will be the next Supreme Court justice. President Trump and the Senate Republicans won’t even have to get rid of the filibuster to confirm Neil Gorsuch, as has been discussed in our comments section. For those interested in the details of how to confirm Neil Gorsuch without getting rid of the filibuster Sean Davis explains the back and forth of Senate rules, particularly Rule 19.
There is no need to get rid of the filibuster in the Senate. The Republican Senate can get rid of the filibuster if it so chooses. Our advice, which echoes President Trump, is a quote from Shakespeare: If it were done when ’tis done, then ’twere well, It were done quickly. In other words, if ya gotta do it, do it fast. If the Republican Senate is to get rid of the filibuster they might as well get full advantage of it for the next eight years at least (and it will still pay dividends under President Pence). The sooner it is done, the greater the chances of success in later initiatives, and the greater the chances of electoral victory. In other words, a virtuous circle.
If the filibuster falls on Supreme Court nominees just be aware that it is very likely that the entire filibuster, for every issue, is likely dead also. As we wrote previously, the Obama Dimocrats are in full “resistance” mode and will continue their Barackesque petulance and temper tantrums until they wake up in 2019 to Republican supermajorities in the Senate and Supreme Court. The looming disaster is what even Rahm Emanuel is “chill pill” warning Obama Dimocrats about today.
No amount of Obama Dimocrat “resistance” will block Neil Gorsuch from the Supreme Court. Likewise, West Coast “resistance” court antics will not stop President Trump from ultimate victory.
The tomfoolery on the West Coast will end in a President Trump victory. At some point it will all wind up in the Supreme Court and President Trump’s current appointee Neil Gorsuch and later appointees will eventually make it to the Supreme Court. President Trump will prevail.
We’re not going to waste time here with detailed discussions of the West Coast court antics. Byron York has done a masterful job of that already:
Byron York: Justice Department demolishes case against Trump order
Byron York is not alone. The Associated Press has debunked Judge Robart’s inappropriate claims in court:
Fact check: No arrests from 7 nations in travel ban? Judge in Seattle was wrong
That the judge in Seattle even asked the question was entirely inappropriate and demonstrates the political, not legal, nature of the temporary injunction he ordered against President Trump’s immigration order. The duty of the court is to determine whether or not President Trump has the authority, not the wisdom of the order. The judge, by his question, proved he is biased against President Trump’s legal order.
Likewise, the Ninth Circuit will be biased against President Trump and will likely rule against President Trump. Then it will likely all go to the Supreme Court which is currently split 4-4 so the Ninth Circuit order will probably rule the day. But it won’t matter. It just won’t matter. Time, is on Trump’s side, yes it is.
Assume all the worst. Assume the Ninth Circuit rules against President Trump. Assume Justice Kennedy refers the entire matter to the full court instead of granting a stay all on his own. Assume the Supreme Court is deadlocked so that the Ninth Circuit leftist loons prevail. Assume the West Coast “judge” issues a preliminary then permanent injunction against President Trump’s immigration order. Assume all the worst, that the courts will not care about the law but instead about their “feelings” and political views. Assume all the worst. It won’t matter. It just won’t matter. Time, is on Trump’s side, yes it is.
Once Neil Gorsuch is on the Supreme Court, President Trump can try again. Once the next justice appointed by President Trump is on the Supreme Court, President Trump can try again. All President Trump has to do is file a slightly altered executive order and the whole process will begin again. Except, the next time, the Supreme Court will be at full Trump. President Trump eventually wins on his immigration executive order because President Trump is correct on the law.
The losers in all this will be the American people and the Obama Dimocrats. The American people will be made less safe. At some point the terrorists flooding into the country because of the West Coast leftist court loons will attack. Who will benefit? President Trump. President Trump will be able to point at the Obama Dimocrats and the leftist loons in the court system and denounce the blood on their hands. Time is on Trump’s side, yes it is.
There are other losers. Silicon Valley. The technology companies have come out in oppostion to President Trump. They have intervened in the courts and filed amicus briefs against President Trump’s order. They will regret it:
Trump’s Next Immigration Move to Hit Closer to Home for Tech
President Donald Trump’s clash with Silicon Valley over immigration is about to become even more contentious.
After the new president banned refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries, Google, Facebook, Salesforce, Microsoft and others railed against the move, saying it violated the country’s principles and risked disrupting its engine of innovation. Trump’s next steps could strike even closer to home: His administration has drafted an executive order aimed at overhauling the work-visa programs technology companies depend on to hire tens of thousands of employees each year.
If implemented, the reforms could shift the way American companies like Microsoft Corp., Amazon.com Inc. and Apple Inc. recruit talent and force wholesale changes at Indian companies such as Infosys Ltd. and Wipro Ltd. Businesses would have to try to hire American first and if they recruit foreign workers, priority would be given to the most highly paid.
“Our country’s immigration policies should be designed and implemented to serve, first and foremost, the U.S. national interest,” the draft proposal reads, according to a copy reviewed by Bloomberg. “Visa programs for foreign workers … should be administered in a manner that protects the civil rights of American workers and current lawful residents, and that prioritizes the protection of American workers — our forgotten working people — and the jobs they hold.”
Technology companies on the West Coast want to protect their profits, not American workers. That is the source of the “resistance” to President Trump from the technology oligarchs.
Again, they will rue the day they opposed American workers and President Trump. Time, is on Trump’s side, yes it is.
It is possible that President Trump could prevail in the Ninth Circuit. We’ll light a sparkler if the Ninth Circuit does the right thing. Justice Kennedy could also issue a stay all on his own if the Ninth Circuit stays on it’s leftist lunacy, and we’ll light the same sparkler in that event. Mostly, we’ll yawn. Eventually, as we wrote earlier, Trump prevails:
Trump is stronger than national polls suggest
President Trump is still popular in core Republican strongholds, even though he has suffered a dip in the national public opinion polls.
Trump’s approval rating is 45 percent, an underwater mark previously unseen for a president this early in his first term. But Trump’s image and his policies are holding up just fine among voters in Republican districts and states key to the president’s ability to drive his agenda through Congress, and his party’s success in 2018. [snip]
While his national numbers aren’t good, Trump is much stronger in the states that could decide the outcome of the midterm elections, according to Republican operatives who have reviewed polling produced since New Year’s Day. For now, that suggests Democrats are less likely to benefit from the president’s struggles nationally than has been the case in past election cycles.
Like Trump’s loss of the national popular vote, Republican operatives say the president’s high disapproval numbers are being driven by dissatisfaction with his leadership in progressive, high-population metro centers, like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York.
The midterm elections, however, are going to be fought on Senate battlegrounds that include red states like Missouri and West Virginia and swing states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — all won by Trump.
Missouri is a perfect example.
The “show me” state will show Obama Dimocrats the door in 2018. The 2018 elections will provide President Trump massive victories. Every day, while Rahm orders “chill pills” for Obama Dimocrats, President Trump continues to work and win. Did we mention this is only week 3 of President Trump? There are several hundred weeks to come. Every day President Trump pulls out a win, like a super human Tom Brady.
Ha! Tom Brady. Remember all those times that Barack the Boob declared such and such of his favorite sports team would win only to watch them go down in flames? Barack the Boob is the kiss of death. President Trump made an outlandish prediction about the Superbowl and outlandish prediction came true.
As the Superbowl game played, Donald Trump, Junior scored a funny:

Yeah, we’re did we see that before?
Lesson: don’t bet against President Trump. Time, and tide, are on Trump’s side.
