31MAR2016 Roundup

Interesting week. After the Obamacare train wreck, the Trump Administration seems to be moving along on all its initiatives.  Trump put out an executive order dismantling the Obama war on coal and fossil fuels.  The EPA reiterated that climate change policy is no longer being pursued.  Senate Majority Leader McConnell has said that a vote on Gorsuch will happen by April 10th.

The Gorsuch vote should be informative. Senate Minority Leader Chuck (The Schmuck) Schumer has declared that he will force a filibuster.  But there are a number of senators in red states up for re-election in 2018.  Several of them have already declared that they will not block cloture.  In addition, some dem strategists have stated that forcing the republicans to use the “nuclear option” (eliminating the filibuster for supreme court approvals) at this point will make it easier for the republicans to get the next SCOTUS appointee in when it will be a true change in the status quo.  If either a democratic appointee or Justice Kennedy is the next justice to be replaced with a truly conservative choice it will fundamentally change the complexion of the court.  So it’s even possible that Schumer knows that the filibuster won’t happen and he’s just posturing.

The North Carolina legislature predictably caved on fake women using the lady’s room. Interestingly, Texas seems to have a little more backbone when it comes to standing up to corporate pressure tactics.  We’ll have to see where the country moves on these battles now that Obama’s not there to use strong arm tactics for the liberal agenda.

Jeff Sessions said that convictions will be necessary to deal with the leaks coming out of the intelligence agencies. And his Justice Department is going after sanctuary cities, threatening to cut off law enforcement funds to cities that refuse to cooperate with ICE agents taking illegals into custody after they’ve been arrested for other crimes.  And once again Texas takes a conservative initiative.  Governor Abbott is introducing legislation holding Texas sheriffs accountable if they cooperate with Sanctuary City efforts to shield illegals from ICE agents.  Pretty smart.

Once Gorsuch is seated, I expect the Supreme Court will be asked to rule on the bogus lower court interference with President Trump’s immigration executive orders. Vice President Pence voted to break a tie to approve a bill to allow states to defund Planned Parenthood if they choose.  And finally, bids are being requested for contracts to build the border wall.   Some Mexican companies have been branded traitors for their interest in the contracts.

So, all in all Trump and company have been fairly busy after their “crushing defeat” last week. I want to once again go on the record to state unequivocally that I am still not tired of winning.  In fact, I think I am now officially addicted to winning.  So much so, that I need my fix more often and in bigger doses.  I hereby put President Trump on notice that he’s gonna havta up my dosage.  Speed up the winning treadmill.  That’s an order.

Groundhog Day and Still Winning

Happy Groundhog Day! All fans of Bill Murray’s classic know that in order to escape from the Purgatory of endlessly reliving a day trapped in a boring hick town in winter you have to recognize your fatal sin and eliminate it.  For the democrats the endless loop is Trump giving them another hot foot.  Their sin is contempt for the average non-elite American.

Luckily for us Deplorables, they’re highly unlikely to even recognize this as a fault. They’ll continue to rage and riot and show the rest of the country how little respect they have for any of the things regular Americans want done.

So it’s been a meme for quite a while to ask yourself if you’re tired of winning yet. This is a play on a statement by Trump that his administration would be winning so much, that Americans would get tired of winning.

So every morning when I get to work, I talk to the Coffee Walk Baunch and I ask them if they’re tired of winning. They’re not.

I have a good memory of every presidential administration going back to LBJ. I can honestly say that even Reagan never produced this much glee.  I am honestly glad every morning to hear what Trump has accomplished and even happier to hear which lefty loon is apoplectic about it.  And like clockwork, whatever reaction they commit blows up in their faces like it was in some kind of Road Runner cartoon.  Only under this administration the democrats are always the coyote.

Almost as amusing, is seeing the old guard republican pundits warily sizing up every new Trump action to see if it’s safe yet to attack it. They’ve been burned so many times doing this  that they are gun shy of just jumping in and condemning him.  But you can tell that they just can’t whole heartedly accept that Trump is the real deal.  After all, he looks and sounds like an extra from a Seinfeld episode.  How can he be smarter than them?  Well, earth to pundits, he is!  Supreme Court picks, wall construction, cabinet picks, immigration policy, bureaucracy reduction, environmental policy, energy policy, education policy, check, check, check, check, check, check, check, check!  Yep, he’s way smarter than you and he’s way more useful than you and, shock of shocks, he’s actually way more “conservative” than you.

And so I’ll bring this back around to Groundhog Day.  I wouldn’t mind waking up every day and hearing that Donald Trump had shocked and offended the democrats.  I would even be willing to have  my alarm clock start every single day with Sonny and Cher belting out “I Got You Babe” if it meant that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and The New York Times and CNN were also waking up to it along with some new bit of Trump jiu-jitsu that was just for them.  Because “He’s Got Them.”

But I want to get involved in it.  I think Trump should contact all his campaign donors and take a poll of what new affront to democrat dignity would be especially popular with the troops.  Maybe the best idea could be announced at a presidential address (or at least given a tweeted shout-out).  My suggestion would be to stop all support to California until they stop violating immigration laws.  This would be especially effective with respect to college money being lavished on illegal aliens.  But I’m sure there are thousands of good ideas out there in the American psyche just waiting for Trump to add it to the endless winning that is our present life.  Long may Ground Hog Day continue.  Amen.
