Fake Tears: GOP Establishment, Dems, Schumer, Against President Trump And The Fight For The West

Update: It’s over for Yates. President Trump has fired her snowflake ass. Snowflake Yates put her feelings above her duties. Because the Senate has failed to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, an Obama twerp, Sally Yates, has been Acting Attorney General. Late today Yates put her feelings on display and declared she would not defend, nor have the Department of Justice lawyers defend in court, President Trump’s executive order on immigration:

Yates does not claim that she cannot defend the executive order because it is unconstitutional or because the Justice Department would be unable to offer good-faith arguments in defense of its legality. To the contrary, Yates claims she is ordering the Justice Department not to defend the executive order because it is not “wise or just.” This is quite significant. I am not aware of any instance in which the Justice Department has refused to defend a presumptively lawful executive action on this basis.

It didn’t take long for President Trump to unleash the heat on the snowflake:

Statement on the Appointment of Dana Boente as Acting Attorney General

The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.

Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.

It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.

Tonight, President Trump relieved Ms. Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as Acting Attorney General until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate, where he is being wrongly held up by Democrat senators for strictly political reasons.

“I am honored to serve President Trump in this role until Senator Sessions is confirmed. I will defend and enforce the laws of our country to ensure that our people and our nation are protected,” said Dana Boente, Acting Attorney General.

KABONG!!!!

Could President Trump have waited? No, as the New York Times noted of the snowflake, “She is the only one authorized to sign foreign surveillance warrants, an essential function at the department.” President Trump is on the job.

DRAIN THE SWAMP MR. PRESIDENT, DRAIN THE FREAKING SWAMP!!!

—————————————————————

Chuck Schumer never cried when terrorists killed Americans. Chuck Schumer did not cry when Kate Steinle was shot dead by an illegal immigrant. Chuck Schumer never cried when Christians in the Middle East are slaughtered by Muslims. But Chuck Schumer cried because President Trump enforced the law to protect Americans.

In August of 2015 we wrote that Donald J. Trump’s immigration policy was “Enforce the Law!”

Before you pass new laws you won’t enforce, enforce the law already on the books.

Marco Rubio and the political class wrote and tried to pass their “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Plan”. The Rubio political class “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Plan” was more millions of words added to the legislative and regulatory library, unread and entirely without meaning. All the millions of new words had no meaning because they would not have been enforced.

This past Sunday Donald Trump unveiled his Comprehensive Immigration Reform Plan. In three words, all of which have meaning, the plan would “enforce the law.”

There is no point in passing a new law if it will not be enforced. There is no point in having a law if it is not enforced. A law that is not enforced is not a law, it is not even a suggestion. A law that is not enforced is a bunch of words devoid of meaning. That is to say, Barack Obama is the embodiment of the concept – a collection of words without meaning other than self-absorption.

Nothing has changed since we wrote that analysis in 2015. Liddle Marco, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, the GOP establishment, the Obama Dimocrat Party, State Department flunkies, the Big Media Party, the Left, Soros, right wing Chamber of Commerce lick-boot “writers” and bloggers, West Coast socialists with big companies, all still fight now President Trump’s “Make America Safe Again” fearlessness.


Trump voters and supporters? The people who elected Donald J. Trump president, stand with President Trump:

The relaxed reaction among the kind of voters who drove Trump’s historic upset victory – working- and middle-class residents of Midwest and the South – provided a striking contrast to the uproar that has gripped major coastal cities, where thousands of protesters flocked to airports where immigrants had been detained.

In the St. Louis suburb of Manchester, Missouri, 72-year-old Jo Ann Tieken characterized the president as bringing reason into an overheated debate.

“Somebody has to stand up, be the grown up and see what we can do better to check on people coming in,” she said. “I’m all for everybody to stop and take a breath … Just give it a chance.”

A Rasmussen poll out early Monday confirms Americans want to Make America Safe Again and support President Trump:

Most voters approve of President Trump’s temporary halt to refugees and visitors from several Middle Eastern and African countries until the government can do a better job of keeping out individuals who are terrorist threats.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government approves its ability to screen out potential terrorists form coming here. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided.

In short, nothing has changed from the election campaign Donald J. Trump won. President Trump fights to Make America Safe Again, while Trump opponents support an intifida against the West.

Was the immigration executive order botched? Should President Trump have given more notice before he implemented his Make America Safe Again executive order? President Trump declared he will not make the same mistakes boob Obama made of giving advance notice to America’s enemies:


President Trump will Make America Safe Again. Chuck Schumer and his intifada against America and the West are political opportunism. Chuck Schumer never wept, there were no tears, as Jews got killed by Muslims. Chuck Schumer never wept at the many countries Jews are banned from visiting. Chuck Schumer did not weep this past week about what happened in Muslim Germany:

German Muslim students protest Holocaust remembrance, attack Israel

The school director said that it was good there was student opposition to the memorial event because it “is the basis of discussion.”

Muslim students of Arab and Turkish origin protested participation in an International Holocaust Remembrance Day event in Germany, while their high school’s administration showed understanding for their criticism of Israel. [snip]

The Holocaust remembrance event was part of a global commemoration in which participants take selfie photographs along with a sign saying “I Remember“ or “We Remember.“ A blackboard at the school was defaced with the sentence: “F*** Israel, free Palestine.” The school was not able to identify the perpetrator. [snip]

Zuroff, who is Wiesenthal’s chief Nazi-hunter, added, “Given that Holocaust consciousness is a central idea of civic identity in the Federal Republic, it is doubly important for families that come from countries with deep antisemitic traditions and no knowledge of the Holocaust and the destruction of European Jewry.”

The Weiterbildungskolleg Emscher-Lippe school, where the protest unfolded, has 500 students, 40% of whom have a migrant background. [snip]

In January, a German court reaffirmed a legal decision from the city of Wuppertal stating the torching of a synagogue by three Muslims was not motivated by antisemitism. The court wrote the men only sought via the arson “to clearly draw attention to the blazing conflict between Israel and Palestinians” during Operation Protective Edge in 2014. The original synagogue in Wuppertal was burned by Germans in 1938.

No tears from Intifada Chuck Schumer who for political profit attacks President Trump. From Hillary Clinton, who was stabbed in the back by 2×4 Chuckie in 2008, there was more stupidity, more support for Israel haters.


Any doubts now about what Hillary would have done if she had won? No tears from Hillary Clinton or Chuck Schumer for the Jews blocked from 16 countries:

No one seems bothered with 16 Muslim countries where Israelis are banned

Sixteen countries forbid admission to Israeli passport holders:

  •  Algeria
  •  Bangladesh
  •  Brunei
  •  Iran
  •  Iraq (except Iraqi Kurdistan)
  •  Kuwait
  •  Lebanon (neighboring country; territory dispute – Shebaa farms)
  •  Libya
  •  Malaysia (Clearance permit needed from the Ministry of Home Affairs.)
  •  Oman
  •  Pakistan (Clearance permit needed from the Ministry of Internal Security.)
  •  Saudi Arabia
  •  Sudan
  •  Syria (neighboring country; territory dispute – Golan Heights)
  •  United Arab Emirates (accepted for transit only; not allowed for admission)
  •  Yemen

In addition, Iran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen do not allow entry to people with evidence of travel to Israel, or whose passports have either a used or an unused Israeli visa. As a consequence, many countries will allow for a second passport to be issued to citizens wishing to circumvent this restriction.

A President Hillary Clinton would have bowed down to Islam, scarf on head.

Last week a real woman leader came to the United States to meet with President Trump. Theresa May dipped her tongue into Churchillian language:

Let’s stand together and halt eclipse of the West

Theresa May offered last night to help President Trump to prevent the West from being “eclipsed” by China as she urged him not to shirk his “obligation” to lead the world.

In a speech to a Republican congressional retreat in Philadelphia the prime minister matched parts of Mr Trump’s controversial foreign policy.

She criticised China’s increasingly “assertive” posture, promised to help to curb Iran’s “malign influence” in the Middle East and to do more to defend allies such as Israel in “tough neighbourhoods” while admitting that it was time to engage Russia in the search for peace in Syria.

Women, Gays, Jews, are most threatened by Islam and Muslim terrorists. But no tears from Hillary Clinton or Chuck Schumer for the victims of Islam and terror.

President Trump fights for the values of the West. Before he saves the West, President Trump must first Make America Safe Again. That is what President Trump is busy doing. Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and the establishments of the GOP and the Obama Dimocrats do not want to Make America Great Again. President Trump and the American people will defeat them all.

Steve Bannon Knows: Big Media Party Is The Enemy

Hooray for Steve Bannon!!! Steve Bannon said this week what we wrote years ago. Recall we called it the “Big Media Party” back in November 2007:

The rise of a new political party – The Big Media Party.

Readers of Big Pink will notice that we regularly refer to “Big Media” not the generally approved MSM (Main Stream Media) utilized by Big Bloggers and the idiot “frame” obsessed to describe the current state of American journalism. [snip]

It is with that history in mind that we refer to the modern media establishment as “Big Media”. Big Media therefore is “big” not so much because of the size of their resources as because of the influence their members could exert on many companies and in many fields of activity.

The Big Media Party fights for its power and their interests. The Big Media Party is an animal of prey and the prey is the public. These are not crusading journalists of yore fighting to right some miscarriage of justice perpetrated by corrupt public officials or exposing sneaky business leaders enriching themselves via fraudulent practices. The Big Media Party fights for the power and privileges of Big Media, with deception and distortion, against the public interest.

We wrote our analysis of the “Big Media Party” during the election cycle which pitted Hillary Clinton versus Barack Obama. We saw clearly that the Big Media Party and the cabal of Democrat power brokers such as Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi wanted to shift the party/coalition of FDR, which defended the white working class, into the abomination which is the Obama coalition. Kennedy/Reid/Pelosi succeeded in their aims but ultimately failed because their success led to President Donald J. Trump – which is exactly what we predicted would happen.

So abusive and deceptive is Big Media, the Big Media Party, as especially witnessed during the 2016 election against Donald J. Trump, that the majority of the public now understands these are not people nor an institution which protects American values.

So transparently self-interested is the Big Media Party, so failed to report anything like “news”, so abusive and determined to promote propaganda is the Big Media Party, so contrary to reality is Big Media “reportage” that many Americans were genuinely shocked at the November 2016 election results.

Those like us here at Big Pink, who understood (as we repeatedly stated), that 2016 was a change election and that the candidate of change would win, were not surprised on election night 2016. We watched the Big Media Party warp election coverage to try to manipulate the outcome. On the Friday before the election we predicted a Trump win and spoke to the meaning of a Trump victory:

The biggest win for the American people when Trump wins: calculated, data driven, “ground game”, bloodless, poll dictated, campaigns will have been beaten by a candidate and campaign that spoke in plain English, not poll calculated and crafted terminology.

Second biggest win for the American people when Trump wins: SMASH BIG MEDIA AND THE RULING POLITICAL CLASS. The scum will be driven from the pond. The vampires will be garlicked. The snakes in the pit will be killed by the American people – with the Trump stick.

All the above is our long-winded way of celebrating Steve Bannon’s burst of honest reality in the pages of the New York Times this week:

Trump Strategist Steve Bannon Says Media Should ‘Keep Its Mouth Shut’

WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s chief White House strategist, laced into the American press during an interview on Wednesday evening, arguing that news organizations had been “humiliated” by an election outcome few anticipated, and repeatedly describing the media as “the opposition party” of the current administration.

The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while,” Mr. Bannon said during a telephone call.

I want you to quote this,” Mr. Bannon added. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.” [snip]

The elite media got it dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong,” Mr. Bannon said of the election, calling it “a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there.”

The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign,” Mr. Bannon said. “Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: they were outright activists of the Clinton campaign.” [snip]

“That’s why you have no power,” Mr. Bannon added. “You were humiliated.” [snip]

“The media has zero integrity, zero intelligence, and no hard work.”

“You’re the opposition party,” Mr. Bannon said. “Not the Democratic Party. You’re the opposition party. The media’s the opposition party.”

We just hit peak Big Pink. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Steve Bannon!

Steven Bannon agrees with us that Big Media is the “opposition party”. “Not the Democratic Party, You’re the opposition party.” We read that and we faint every time, giddy with joy, exhausted from peak Big Pink trips to Nirvana! The Big Media Party Is The Enemy:

As we have written repeatedly, Big Media is the enemy. The Hollywood establishment and the lowlifes of the entertainment industry are but another swamp that must be drained. Fortunately, for every American who sees the need to destroy Big Media and the cohorts of the left, Donald J. Trump will soon be President of the United States. Sometimes you get what you need.

We needed someone to declare that Big Media is a political party, the real opposition. That that someone is Steve Bannon is extra luscious because of who Steve Bannon is:

White House and Hill GOP leaders are astonished by the unambiguous, far-reaching power of Steve Bannon and policy guru Stephen Miller over, well, just about everything:

They wrote the Inaugural speech and set in fast motion a series of moves to cement Trump as an America-first Nationalist.
They maneuvered to get more key allies inside the White House and positioned for top agency jobs.
They wrote many of the executive orders, sometimes with little input from others helping with the transition.
They egged on Trump to take a combative approach with the media, China, Mexico and critics.
And Bannon punctuated the week with a full-throated, Trump-pleasing bashing of the media … [snip]

Pre-conventional wisdom: A conservative leader told Axios’ Jonathan Swan that Reince Priebus’ people were feeling like they “won November and December,” having filled the White House with so many loyalists. The spin was that Reince was outmaneuvering Bannon and would be the real power source. But now it’s dawning on them, as Trump makes his early moves, that maybe they spoke too soon.

The dull and lame-brained do not think Big Media can be beaten. These defeatists believe the best strategy is the one Hillary Clinton employed, which is to collaborate with the enemy and eventually turn into the servants of the Big Media Party. How did that work out?

Joe Scarborough advises President Donald J. Trump to surrender, because “the media always wins”:



After the first super successful week it is clear President Trump will listen to Steve Bannon. That’s why Trump trumps.

January 25th, 2017

President Trump Hump Day High Energy: #Dow20K, Border Wall, Immigration, Voter Fraud

The Revolution is still here. It’s not chaotic nor disorderly. It is planned and well executed.

President Trump plans to Make America Great Again. To do that President Trump understands that the economy is job 1. Job 2 is jobs, jobs, jobs. So that is what President Trump is targeting. President Trump gets rid of chains (unnecessary regulations) on the economy and does what he can to make America independent of Muslim states on energy (oil). Then get rid of ObamaCare which also shackles the economy and serves only to give citizens’ money to insurance companies at the point of the Federal government gun and strangles business. To raise wages and create jobs for Americans, take control of the border and legal and illegal immigration.



Today, “Hump Day” a.k.a. Wednesday, and President Trump is still high energy. The day began with Tweets. The first presidential Tweet was a promise to protect mostly African-American citizens led to the slaughter in Obama’s Chicago.


That’s how the day started. After that presidential Tweet, President Trump bit Big Media. Yesterday, President Trump played with his food. His “food” is Big Media. Big Media attacked President Trump and continues to attack President Trump every day over Trump’s claim that there was a lot of voter fraud in the past election. So President Trump played with Big Media on his plate and today he stuck the fork in Big Media and Democrat Party corruption – all with the excuse that he is giving them what they demanded. It’s the art of the deal negotiation tactics brought to the White House.


Because Obama Dimocrats and Big Media demanded an investigation, today “don’t throw me in the briar patch” President Trump declared he wants an investigation into voter fraud and the entire elections system including dead voters still on the voter rolls. Recall: New York Elections Commissioner who in a secretly recorded tape said he was in favor of voter IDs because in New York many people voted repeatedly and many of them here illegally. Recall: North Carolina and the voters registered in several states that voted in each state. Recall: the election recount that could not recount votes in Detroit because of the many votes voted in 37% of precincts that could not be accounted for. Guess where the President Trump voter fraud investigations will take place? If you guess a voter fraud investigation in Democrat controlled cities to root out corruption, you guessed Trumpily.



But today there has been so much more than President Trump playing with his food. Today President Trump struck at Barack Obama’s Israel-hating policies with a review of the $221 million Obama gifted to his pals so they can terrorize Israel. That was not all.


On Immigration President Trump humped:

U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign executive orders starting on Wednesday that include a temporary ban on most refugees and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries, say congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter. [snip]

Another order will block visas being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified.

That’s not all on the menu for high energy President Trump on hump day. President Trump will “Build that Wall”:

In his tweet late on Tuesday, Trump said: “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!”

The border security measures probably include directing the construction of a border wall with Mexico and other actions to cut the number of illegal immigrants living in the United States.

President Trump’s meeting next week with with Mexican President at the White House will be interesting. President Trump also announced other executive actions to bolster border patrol agents and ended the Obama catch-and-release system which dissolved the American border. Little wonder then that border patrol agents are doing a happy dance because President Trump is letting them do their jobs.

Sanctuary cities? Good riddance:

A pair of executive orders call for cutting off federal funding for those cities that willingly become havens for migrants in the country illegally, as well as expansion of detention space for migrants who have been caught and being shipped back to their home countries, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.

The signing ceremony will come during Trump’s visit to the Department of Homeland Security headquarters in Washington.

On sanctuary cities President Trump will have the assistance of border state, Texas Governor Abbott:

Echoing a pledge by President Trump, Republican Governor Greg Abbott has vowed to slash funding for Austin’s new sheriff over immigration

Texas Governor Greg Abbott vowed to cut funding to Austin’s new sheriff after she announced her county would scale back cooperation with federal immigration officials over deportations, marking a showdown over so-called sanctuary cities that may resonate beyond the Lone Star state.

The no borders left Left will go bonkers over the border-line.



It’s not just the southern border President Trump will protect. His proposals include a “biometric identification system” to control who enters and exits this country. President Trump will also block that weird Australia deal Obama would provide no details on:

The U.S. agreed to resettle an unspecified number of refugees being held in Papua New Guinea (PNG) and the tiny South Pacific island nation of Nauru on Australia’s behalf, under a deal to be administered by the U.N. refugee agency. [snip]

Australia’s tough border security laws mandate that asylum seekers intercepted trying to reach the country by boat go for processing to detention camps on PNG’s Manus island and Nauru.

Australia does not provide information on the nationalities of those held, but around a third of the 1,161 detainees were from countries covered by the executive orders, lawyers and refugee workers for the asylum seekers told Reuters.

“We already didn’t have much hope the U.S. would accept us,” Behrouz Boochani, an Iranian refugee who has spent more than three years on Manus island, told Reuters.

“If they do not take us, Australia will have to.”

Australia can have them and Obama’s sneaky ways are a thing of the past.

It’s all happening today. High energy President Trump is on the job.

Oh, and the Dow blasted through the 20,000 mark today too. It’s calling “winning”.

The Revolution’s Here: President Trump’s Firsts, Triumph Over Phony #WomensMarch

Update: President Trump is like Motown Records in it’s heyday – the hits just keep on coming! Today President Trump approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. Many presumed President Trump would wait on those until his EPA nominee was confirmed by the Senate, but President Trump won’t be delayed. President Trump also signed an executive order commanding the “… Commerce Department to maximize the use of U.S. steel in constructing the pipes for these projects. ‘We will build our own pipelines. We will build our own pipes. … Like we used to in the old days,’ he said.”

In addition, President Trump signed executive orders again ordering the Commerce Department to streamline the “extremely cumbersome” process of obtaining permits for manufacturing projects. Another executive order commanded expedited “environmental reviews and approvals.” President Trump declared “We can’t be in an environmental [review] process for 15 years if a bridge is going to be falling down or if a highway is crumbling.”

President Trump also ordered the EPA to “freeze its grants and contracts” be “temporarily suspended, effective immediately”!

Yesterday President Trump met with Big Labor leaders and the Labor chieftains proclaimed the meeting to be “incredible“. Today President Trump at 9:00 a.m. met with automobile industry leaders. The auto industry leaders emerged from the meeting with “a lot of confidence” and encouraged by President Trump.

President Trump also announced his Supreme Court nominee will be made public next week.

That all happened before noon. This Trump guy appears to be high energy.

——————————————————————-

President Trump’s first week day and first week will be filled with surprises and gifts galore. This might be an update kind of day as developments develop.

On President Trump’s first half day, Friday, he was inaugurated and signed several executive orders which will have bite as time goes on. On President Trump’s first weekend day he attended a prayer service. Also on President Trump’s first weekend day there was a funeral called the “women’s march”.

The phony “women’s march” on Saturday was a funeral attended by corpses. The phony “women’s march” was a celebration of Islam, that hates women. The phony “women’s march” ignored the fact that Trump was elected by a majority of white women. The phony “women’s march” was seriously “a day late”.

Imagine if the phony “women’s march” had taken place on the day after Hillary Clinton was nominated as the first woman presidential candidate of a major party – we would have taken it to mean a serious challenge and the birth of a counter-revolution by reactionary forces prepared to fight. Imagine if the phony “women’s march” had taken place a few days before the November 2016 election. Imagine the boost of high energy that would have provided Hillary2016. But no, that didn’t happen.

The phony “women’s march” literally was “a day late” – as President Trump was inaugurated a day earlier. The phony “women’s march” which excluded Hillary Clinton from it’s list of prominent “leaders” was phony because it did not represent all women. The phony “women’s march” was phony because in actuality, put aside the publicity, it was a funeral. All the women and men who attended the “women’s march” participated in their own funeral. The corpses walked about, walking dead, unaware they were dead and all their works buried.

Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, Eno as he is known to all his ambient/Bowie/U2/Coldplay music fans, explains the Trump revolution via Brexit:

My feeling about Brexit was not anger at anybody else, it was anger at myself for not realising what was going on. I thought that all those Ukip people and those National Fronty people were in a little bubble. Then I thought: ‘Fuck, it was us, we were in the bubble, we didn’t notice it.’ There was a revolution brewing and we didn’t spot it because we didn’t make it. We expected we were going to be the revolution.”

Here at Big Pink we saw the revolution start back in the days of the Tea Party in 2009. We saw the revolution gain strength every election since then. We saw the revolution get it’s leader in June 2015. Years before, we understood the 2016 election would be a change election and the candidate of change would win. On election night we understood the vastness of the change election was a revolution. Now the revolution’s here.



“The revolution’s here and you know that it’s right.” The revolution is here but it is not Abbie Hoffman or Jerry Rubin at the barricades – it’s Milo the modern day “yippie movement” man flamboyantly gaying around in support of President Trump and the West. Imagine that, a gay man who understands Islam is out to kill him, and women and anyone in favor of freedom and liberty for all, because he is gay, or because of ovaries, or because thoughts must be suppressed by the establishment so the establishment can benefit and by Islam so that Islam can conquer and inflict itself on freedom loving peoples.

Yeah, the revolution is here and it’s the first Monday of the revolution. What will President Trump do? What has President Trump done?

Well, it’s good riddance to TPP as President Trump has now signed an executive order to that effect. There’s now a hiring freeze at the previously ever expanding Federal government thanks to a newly signed executive order. NAFTA will be renegotiated or get killed too. The Mexico City policy on abortion is back which stops taxpayer funded abortions overseas, per an executive order. President Trump spoke with the Egyptian president, his ally against Muslim terrorism. President Trump also met with ten manufacturing business leaders (Ford, Dell, Tesla, Dow, Under Armour), to discuss his plans to cut taxes and regulations. About those regulations, President Trump said he wants to cut regulations by a stunning 75% or more! Later in the day President Trump will meet with Labor leaders and American workers. President Trump is working diligently and rapidly to fulfill that long long list of things he promised to do on his first full work day.

On Friday President Trump will meet with his first world leader – a woman – British Prime Minister Theresa May. Take that phony “women’s march” cadavers.

Inaugural Balls Answer: Is President Trump A Hillary Clinton Or Alexander The Great?

Nancy Pelosi gave the second smartest speech on Inauguration Day. Pelosi’s speech was a retread of much of what Barack Obama said repeatedly in the days since the colossal result of election day November 7, 2016. Unfortunately for Pelosi/Obama and the other kooks on the left, Donald J. Trump gave the smartest, toughest, most contrary, speech since the second Lincoln inaugural.

* * * * *

We feared the rituals of Inauguration Day and the first full day as president, for Donald J. Trump. We appreciate, understand, respect, pay deference to, ritual. Rituals are important. But rituals have a purpose. On the plus side, rituals can be a soothing balm in times of trouble such as the death of a loved one or a national leader.

Rituals can also have a “civilizing” effect. The coronation of a king invested the monarch with the full weight and majesty of divine right. The rituals of coronation chasten the potentate to use power wisely and sparingly.

As we watched the “peaceful transition of power” that is Inauguration Day, we understood and feared that Donald J. Trump would be “civilized” by the numbing set pieces of national ritual. The formal meeting as the old president about to leave office greets the soon-to-be president; the “tea” of same; the ride to the ceremonies; the formality of announcements as power players are greeted at the main ceremony; the oath of office officiated by the head of the third branch of government to induct the head of the executive branch of office on a platform built as it had been built many times earlier for previous inaugurations; the oath itself handed down from the time the very first president took office to the now forty-fifth executive to utter; the old executive given the boot via transport once reserved for his use; the luncheon given by the second branch of government to welcome the new executive with all it’s ritual speeches by power players, the inaugural parade with representatives of the governed marching along as the new executive salutes military units and quasi military units when appropriate; finally the inaugural balls in which the executive shares a dance with the spouse; then the next day the final ritual of rituals as an Inaugural Prayer Service convenes to foster national unity.

We feared these rituals and the potential effect on Donald J. Trump. Nancy Pelosi played to what we feared in her very smart speech to newborn President Donald J. Trump. Pelosi followed-up on Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer’s “history lesson” to President Trump by saying,

“… we are gathered today in that old House chamber where Lincoln served beneath the same clock that Lincoln heard ticking but under the gaze of Clio. Mr. President, right up there, above that door, the Muse of History, Clio. For almost two centuries, Clio and her clock have reminded the men and women of these hallowed halls that we are part of history. That our words and actions will face the judgment of history and that we are part of the long and honorable heritage of our democracy.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continued with her “history” lesson to President Trump. The meaning of course and the intent was clear to all. Nancy Pelosi was trying to “civilize” President Trump. By “civilize” we mean to break Trump, to turn Trump into Hillary Clinton.

Many of our regular readers will recall the defense offered during the election by many of Hillary Clinton voters. The argument offered by us on this website was that Hillary Clinton and her campaign had willingly sold itself and proudly become “the Obama Third Term” and therefore we rejected her candidacy. To counter our indisputable argument, to sooth our anger at Hillary Clinton’s willful metamorphosis into an Obama insect, those who advocated for Hillary Clinton offered their defense which was “Vote for Hillary Clinton because Hillary Clinton is lying.” We found that bizarre argument unsettling, unsatisfactory, and unpersuasive. The argument was that Hillary Clinton was lying to the electorate and that once in office she would not be the “Obama Third Term” she campaigned on in appearance and ads.

Nancy Pelosi on Inauguration Day was doing a mulligan on the “vote for Hillary Clinton because Hillary Clinton is lying” argument. What Nancy Pelosi, rather surprisingly smart to us, was saying to President Trump was “President Trump ignore what you said during the campaign. Turn what you said during the campaign into a lie. If you lie to your voters we can work with you and you will be rewarded by history and Big Media. Just lie Mr. Newly-elected President, just lie to all your supporters. Turn yourself into a liar Mr. President.”

Pelosi’s speech was an echo of Obama’s constant swan song. Obama argued every chance he got after the 2016 elections that once Trump became president he would change. Obama argued that once Trump became President Trump the “job” would “transform” Trump:

Trump will get wake-up call when he takes office, Obama says

President-elect Donald Trump is in for a quick wake-up call and will have to adjust his temperament when he confronts the realities of his new job on Jan. 20, President Barack Obama said on Monday.

In a news conference at the White House, Obama said the freewheeling Trump could not be as outspoken as he was during the long and bitter campaign that ended last week with the Republican’s surprise win over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

This office has a way of waking you up,” Obama said. “Those aspects of his positions or predispositions that don’t match up with reality, he will find shaken up pretty quick because reality has a way of asserting itself.”

The two men met in the Oval Office last week to begin the transition of power. Obama said on Monday he believed Trump would be pragmatic in office and not approach the country’s problems from an ideological perspective.

“There are going to be certain elements of his temperament that will not serve him well, unless he recognizes them and corrects them,” Obama said.

“Because when you’re a candidate and you say something that is inaccurate or controversial it has less impact than it does when you’re president of the United States. Everybody around the world is paying attention. Markets move,” he said. [snip]

But Obama, who criticized Trump’s temperament during the campaign, said it was important for Trump to send signals of unity after the hard-fought campaign. He said the political gifts that allowed the Republican to upset Clinton would be put to good use in the White House.

“I’ve been encouraged by his statements on election night about the need for unity, his interest in being president for all people,” Obama said. “In an election like this that was so hotly contested and so divided, gestures matter.”

Obama was trying to turn Trump into a liar. Obama wanted Trump to be like Obama. Lie during the campaign then become something else once in office. It was the “vote for Hillary ’cause she’s a liar” argument.

That was our fear. We wanted “Let Trump Be Trump!” Obama/Pelosi/Schumer wanted “Let Trump be Hillary.”

We got the first answer to our fears quickly, but not with finality. We were heartened. Trump spoke. The Trump Inaugural Address was a war whoop we cheered:

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs, and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day, this is your celebration, and this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. Jan. 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

President Trump said that to all the power players to their faces. During the primaries Trump had railed against a Republican president at a Republican debate, denounced the Republican establishment too at Republican debates hosted by the Republican establishment! Now it was President Trump against the entire corrupt establishment. “Politicians prospered” thundered Trump, as the lighting bolts from Olympus, the hammer from Asgard, the anger of the Almighty, flowed from his mouth with the vow “That all changes starting right her and right now!”

So much for “ceremony”. So much for the soothing, calming effects of ritual. Channeling all the anger in the cosmos, President Trump championed the “people” governed, and denounced the “small group in our nation’s capital” bleeding the nation dry; the “Washington” that “flourished” as the nation withered; the “politicians” that “prospered” as the “factories closed”.

It had all been heard before from Donald J. Trump. But none of it, not one single word, had ever been heard on the ritual Inaugural Day – spoken to all the powerful assembled – from the lips of an uncompromised PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump.

Yes, the PRESIDENT! The President remained untamed. President Donald J. Trump in his magnificent Inaugural Address was not turned into a liar by Clio, by Hillary, by Obama, by Ryan, by Schumer, by McConnell, by Big Media, by the protests, by the establishment of the Republican Party, by the Obama Dimocrat Party, by the forces of nature, by ceremonies, by rituals. Trump remained true.

Still we were unsatisfied. That speech was prepared before the ceremonies and rituals had a chance to take their “calming” effect. The Inaugural Address was written before the numbing rituals could break his spirit. The speech could have been the last gasp of truth before the lies came. Still, we worried.

On the First Day, the first hours, we still worried even after that cry of war that President Trump uttered. All that was left of the day to unworry us, to calm us, was the thought of apparel. What would Melania wear?

As we waited for the Inaugural Balls to begin to swing we waited and worried. We were not particularly calmed by the first Executive Orders issued by President Trump. One Executive Order impacted ObamaCare in the direction we wanted. Another Executive Order blocked new regulations. The promise of these executive orders was great but we understood that until the various cabinet appointees were confirmed the big items would have to wait. We were willing to wait until the confirmations came and the flood of executive orders began. But we were still unsatisfied and still worried about the effect of ceremony and ritual.

Then the Trump Inaugural Balls began to swing. Trump spoke as his Inaugural Balls swung:

In brief remarks before the couple had their first dance, Mr. Trump said it was “a great day” and that the evening was “so special.”

“People that weren’t so nice to me were saying that we did a really good job today,” he said. “They hated to do it, but they did it and I respect that, I respect that.”

Mr. Trump, dressed in a dark tuxedo with a cummerbund, danced to a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” with First Lady Melania Trump, who wore a long, strapless ecru gown designed by Carolina Herrera.

Nodding to the work ahead, Mr. Trump said supporters will be “so happy” with what they see from the administration over the coming weeks.

You’re going to see things happening over the next few weeks, oh, you’re going to be so happy,” he said. “We want to see great things happen for our country we want to make America great again and we will, and we will.”

Now the work begins, there’s no games right? There’s no games,” he continued. “We’re not playing games, the work begins.”

At the second ball of the night, the Freedom Ball, Mr. Trump echoed similar themes to his speech at the first ball he attended.

There is so much spirit in our country, this is such a great country and we are gonna do things we will not be taken advantage of anymore, we will not,” he said.

“Now the fun begins,” he said. “We’re going to do a really good job, and I will be fighting every single day for you.”

And at the third and final inaugural ball Mr. Trump attended, the Armed Services Ball, Mr. Trump spoke via satellite with U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan. One by one, they congratulated him on his inauguration.

“Honestly not only the support you’ve given me, the courage that you show is incredible and it’s going to be appreciated,” he said. “It’s appreciated now but it’s going to be appreciated now more than ever before.”

Mr. Trump added that he likes the service members better than he likes the media.

“I like them much better than i like the media, right?” he said. “These are much finer people, nicer people … you are the nicest people.”

Trump answered our worries with finality. The Inaugural Address was a prepared speech from weeks or days ago. But the impromptu remarks, the statements that came from President Donald J. Trump’s mouth at the Inaugural Balls came from his heart and displayed testicular fortitude. “Now the work begins, there’s no games right? There’s no games, We’re not playing games, the work begins.” Trump answered our worries. “I will be fighting every single day for you.”

There are ancient tales of Alexander, the son of Philip II of Macedon. One story is of the time the young Alexander visited the Oracle at Delphi to seek blessings for his upcoming battle against Persia (modern day Iran), and/or prophesy of his fortune foretold. Alexander arrived either too late for the scheduled ceremonies of prophesy or the Oracle was too tired. Alexander would not be granted audience and fortune’s secrets would remain unspoken.

As the story is told, with some variety, young Alexander did not stand by ceremony. Alexander seized, grabbed, Pythia the high Oracle by the hair, until she screamed “My son, you will shake the world!!!” Alexander had prophesy and his fortune laid before him.

“My son, you will shake the world!!!” We said the same on January 20, 2017.
