Trump’s da man!

(The following is an editorial from the Investor’s Business Daily. For an even more detailed list of President Trump’s many accomplishments, go here.)

AFTER WEEKS and months of fixating on tweets and Russia, someone in the press decided to have a look at what the Trump administration has been up to since January. Lo and behold, they discovered that it’s getting a lot done.

serveimage“Trump Has Quietly Accomplished More Than It Appears,” reads the headline in the Atlantic.

“With the Trump administration’s chaos sucking up all the attention,” the article begins, “it’s been able to move forward on a range of its priorities … It is remaking the justice system, rewriting environmental rules, overhauling public-lands administration, and greenlighting major infrastructure projects. It is appointing figures who will guarantee the triumph of its ideological vision for decades to come.”

It goes on to detail these achievements, many of which we’ve highlighted on these pages.

Border crossings, for example, have plummeted, even though all Trump has done so far is promise to enforce existing laws.

The Supreme Court approved parts of Trump’s travel ban, a success made possible by Trump’s appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the bench.

Trump is busy filling lower court positions with conservative justices. Ron Klain, a White House aide to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, said that Trump “is proving wildly successful in one respect: naming youthful conservative nominees to the federal bench in record-setting numbers.”

What else? Well, Trump pulled out of the Paris climate change deal, which as we noted in this space is a yuuuge win for the economy.

The EPA, meanwhile, is dismantling Obama’s coal-killing, growth-choking Clean Power Plan, and draining the heavy-handed Waters of the United States rule. When a veteran EPA official resigned this week, she complained in a letter to her former colleagues that “the new EPA Administrator already has repeals of 30 rules under consideration,” which the New York Times described as “a regulatory rollback larger in scope than any other over so short a time in the agency’s 47-year history.”

Trump promised to kill two regulations for every new one enacted, but in his first six months the ratio was 16-to-1.

Trump also approved the Keystone XL and other pipeline projects held up by Obama. He’s also rolled back a ban on coal mining on public lands.

To be sure, Trump hasn’t scored a major legislative achievement on signature issues like ObamaCare and tax reform.

The Atlantic writer describes the administration’s achievements as something akin to a shadow government. But these actions aren’t in the shadows. They’re just being ignored by a media that is obsessed with digging up dirt on Trump.

The liberator

VERY INTERESTING video. Author and filmmaker Laurence Jarvik speaks for an hour on the Trump phenomenon. Among other themes, he points out that Trump is neither Democrat nor Republican but another thing altogether.

Trump is a deprogrammer of the American mind.

The horrid president

GOOD LORD! Just hear the endless racism, misogyny, jingoism, bigotry and religious intolerance that spews from this orange-coifed guy’s mouth! It just turns my tummy.

And that wife! Can she even speak English?

And the dreadful things he’s done in his first six months! Here’s a list, but brace yourself. Awful, awful, awful.

The election of 2020 can’t come too soon. We’ll be able to install the Pocahontas princess in the Oval Office, and everything will be peachy again, just like with Obama.

(Note: I’m posting the list as a public service because I doubt you’ll see it on Huffpost. I cannot imagine why.)

I told you so!

AMERICAN SOCIALISTS* are fond of saying President Trump lost the popular vote. They then conclude his presidency is bogus even though the popular vote does not determine who is elected. That’s the Electoral College, of course.

Trump won handily, fair and square, where it counts.

Just like JFK, Nixon and FDR.

Since the election, I have pointed out repeatedly that many of the popular votes scored by Hillary were cast by illegal aliens. This is because, in many places, all you need to flash at the polling station is a driver’s license.

Many states issue driver’s licenses to illegals.

And all you need to register to vote is check that you are a citizen. Beyond your word, nobody verifies it.

We all voted for Hillary!

So, with Lord knows how many illegals with driver’s licenses, and with 100 percent of them voting Democrat, it may well have caused Hillary’s “popular” vote victory.

She was popular with illegals, no doubt.

I have been dissed for pointing this out, but now there is a legit study that backs me up. I am correct again. An independent think tank, Just Facts, has issued a report on the matter.

Almost 6 million illegals may have voted.

President Trump has formed a commission to look into this problem of people voting who have no right to vote, just one of the many positive things coming out of Trump’s Oval Office.

Meanwhile, Democrats continue to howl in the streets, whining, crying, rioting and issuing death threats. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

It’s enough to make this old Mexican roll his eyeballs.

* Democrat Party voters! But I concede that some Democrats, almost exclusively older people, vote Democrat out of long habit. They also think, incorrectly, that the Democrat Party is the “nice” party and Republicans are old meanies. And plenty of these geriatric Democrats have been stoned since 1968.
