“Fortunately, then, given the legislative history, President Trump has decided not to wait for Congress to act. He will exercise his authority as the head of the executive branch to mold it into something more to his liking. Whether Congress wants to join in the renovation is up to them, apparently.
Remarkably, the Washington Post’s piece admits what we all know all too well: “The government structure has remained largely intact under both Democrats and Republicans.”
The Republicans have found their spine. Hell is freezing over.
“The ad, which does not mention any specific GOP candidates, is sharp, shocking, and absolutely what the GOP needs to invigorate their base and bring in rational independents who are sick of the insanity.”
Duluth, MN Trump Rally
“Did you hear me? Nearly 60 percent of the voters who attended the rally to show Trump vociferous support were registered Democrats and Independents!” https://downtrend.com/vsaxena/trump-rally-photo/
The Supreme Court released the letter sent by Justice Anthony Kennedy on Wednesday announcing his retirement.
“U.S.—After Justice Kennedy announced his retirement Wednesday, the nation took a brief moment to thank the Lord that Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election, and thus would not be able to select his replacement for the Supreme Court.
The nation acknowledged that it didn’t deserve God’s blessings but thanked Him anyway for sparing them a Clinton presidency.
“Father God, we just want to thank You that Hillary Clinton didn’t win the presidency. We know, Lord, that Trump isn’t ideal either, but hoo boy.”
“You could tell Anthony Kennedy was about to retire, because he suddenly started voting consistently the right way on decision after decision after decision over the past month. Indeed, the last 17 5-4 decisions handed down by this Supreme Court all went the way of the Constitution because Kennedy, that perennial disappointment to conservatives everywhere, voted along with the strict constructionist wing of the court.
All this new-found consistency for the first time in his 31 years on the court led me to comment to a friend the other day that Kennedy was definitely about to retire because he wasn’t issuing his usual random horrible liberal decisions in order to keep his name on the list of invitees to all the best dinner parties in Washington, DC.”
“Writing for the majority, Justice Clarence Thomas declared, “California cannot co-opt the … facilities to deliver its message for it,” particularly in light of the fact that the message directly contradicts the facilities’ convictions and objective, namely saving babies from abortion.”
“Most notably, Macroeconomic Advisers raised its forecast to 5.3% from 4.5% for gross domestic product, the official scorecard for the U.S. economy. The firm’s forecast is one of the most detailed on Wall Street.”
“As a result, government workers no longer can be required to pay anything to unions that they have been required to join in the past.”
@“Pretty big deal. Now, unions can’t steal Republican union members’ money to contribute to Democrat politics, either through direct contributions or get out the vote manpower costs. Furthermore, unions have to create value for their members to get them to join and pay the fees.
Never was a blue wave. D5 avalanche coming. Work the midterms Patriots. MAGA
“I see Clinton as trying a little role-modeling and warning to his party about embracing hatred.
It will fall on deaf ears.
I am more and more optimistic over the possibility of the GOP holding the House and expanding its Senate majority.”
“People] that were formerly in Obamacare or didn’t have insurance. Or didn’t have health care. Millions of people,” Trump told the Times. “That’s going to be a big bill, you watch. It could be as high as 50 percent of the people. You watch. So that’s a big thing.”
“As far as the jump in Hispanic support, that is not at all surprising to those of us who know everyday Hispanics. (My wife is a Mexican immigrant-now-citizen). From my experience, legal immigrants, including Hispanics, resent illegal immigrants even more than everyday Americans do. And why shouldn’t they? Legal immigrants followed the rules, went through all the trouble to do things legally. So, naturally, they resent the idea of line jumpers when they waited in line ten years.”
“President Trump is right now, as we speak, in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, at the ribbon cutting for the new Foxconn plant there. Foxconn is the Taiwanese company that assembles iPhones in both mainland China and India, a number of other places. And they’re opening a plant in Wisconsin, 13,000 jobs will be created.”
“The good news goes beyond the headline numbers. Almost 800,000 construction, manufacturing and mining jobs have been created since Trump’s election. These are the blue-collar and middle-class jobs that had been flat or disappearing for years.”
Not a blue wave. Never was. Winning.
@“The people of Iran want to throw off the yoke of the Mullahs. North Korea is signaling a willingness to stop their advance of nuclear weapons. Trump sits down with Putin next month. Domestically, our economy is booming, employment is plentiful and our standard of living is once again on the rise. The left is rioting, literally, to end the progress. Blue Wave?” https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/06/in-rare-display-over-30-middle-east-political-leaders-stand-in-support-of-a-free-iran-at-paris-convention-video/
“If these decisions didn’t set off gnashing and wailing on the left, the Kennedy announcement surely has, and for good reason: the decades-long control of the Supreme Court by the left since at the late 1930s is coming to a screeching halt, and there’s nothing much they can do to stop it.”
I have seen the positive impact many times. Deo gratis.
“Much of the momentum came from knowing what an impact this one machine could have. The Knights of Columbus have had an ultrasound fundraising initiative for years and have purchased over 950 ultrasounds nationwide. By their own estimates, the sonogram images save two to three lives every week. A January 2014 studyshowed that women were almost three times more likely to keep their children if they viewed a sonogram, even more so if they were far along in the pregnancy.”
“This is a testimonial campaign, a grassroots movement that is going to change the political landscape of this country.”
Some Democrats say they are still expecting a “blue wave” come November. If social media is any indication, there seems to have been a sea change.”
“This is bigger than Kanye. Trump promised blacks that if they gave him a chance, they would see real economic progress and he has delivered, big time. Blacks are working more than ever, many at better jobs.”
“They don’t have to vote for Republicans in the midterms (though that would be nice), all they have to do is not vote at all, “walking away” from a party that has lost its mind.
We have more than four months left before the election. That is time for this movement to become well known among habitual Democratic voters taken aback at the descent into madness of their former political party.”
