The Highlights of President Trump’s Ninth Week In Office

 

March 22, Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch takes a verbal beating from the confirmation hearing. He dodges the traps and tells the democrats that he’s a fair judge.  He refuses to answer questions that could later be litigated in court and uses his wisdom to slide through the confirmation hearing.  But will the democrats stop him?

And through often accusatory questioning aimed at distorting his record, he forcefully defended his rulings on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals while schooling senators on the law. He reminded the senators that “97 percent of the 2,700 cases I’ve decided were decided unanimously — and that I’ve been in the majority 99 percent of the time.”

 

President Trump faces many challenges head on as we hear that Obamacare is still here.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan had all of this time to prepare for the new healthcare plan and let many people down not being prepared.  We can’t blame this one on President Trump, Ryan owns this one along with the democrats that fought to keep the failing healthcare plan.  But President Trump isn’t giving up as he says, he knows the democrats will be ready to negotiate soon to make this healthcare plan work.

I know so far God’s in control and we have to trust that God is going to give this new administration the time wisdom to make it all work.

Travel Ban is denied again. This time with HawaiianU.S. District Judge Derrick Watson.

HONOLULU (AP) — Hours before it was to take effect, President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban was put on hold Wednesday by a federal judge in Hawaii who questioned whether the administration was motivated by national security concerns.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson also said Hawaii would suffer financially if the executive order blocked the flow of students and tourists to the state, and he concluded that Hawaii was likely to succeed on a claim that the ban violates First Amendment protections against religious discrimination.

“The illogic of the government’s contentions is palpable,” Watson wrote. “The notion that one can demonstrate animus toward any group of people only by targeting all of them at once is fundamentally flawed.”

The judge issued his 43-page ruling less than two hours after hearing Hawaii’s request for a temporary restraining order to stop the ban from being put into practice.

The ruling came as opponents renewed their legal challenges across the country, asking judges in three states to block the executive order that targets people from six predominantly Muslim countries. Federal courts in Maryland, Washington state and Hawaii heard arguments about whether it should be allowed to take effect early Thursday as scheduled.

In all, more than half a dozen states are trying to stop the ban.

Watson made it clear that his decision applied nationwide, ruling that the ban could not be enforced at any U.S. borders or ports of entry or in the issuance of visas.

Nominated to the federal bench by President Barack Obama in 2012, he is currently the only Native Hawaiian judge serving on the federal bench and the fourth in U.S. history. He received his law degree from Harvard in 1991.

In Maryland, attorneys told a federal judge that the measure still discriminates against Muslims.

Government attorneys argued that the ban was revised substantially to address legal concerns, including the removal of an exemption for religious minorities from the affected countries.

“It doesn’t say anything about religion. It doesn’t draw any religious distinctions,” said Jeffrey Wall, who argued for the Justice Department.

Attorneys for the ACLU and other groups said that Trump’s statements on the campaign trail and statements from his advisers since he took office make clear that the intent of the ban is to ban Muslims. Trump policy adviser Stephen Miller has said the revised order was designed to have “the same basic policy outcome” as the first.

The new version of the ban details more of a national security rationale. It is narrower and eases some concerns about violating the due-process rights of travelers.

It applies only to new visas from Somalia, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya and Yemen and temporarily shuts down the U.S. refugee program. It does not apply to travelers who already have visas.

“Generally, courts defer on national security to the government,” said U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang. “Do I need to conclude that the national security purpose is a sham and false?”

In response, ACLU attorney Omar Jadwat pointed to Miller’s statement and said the government had put out misleading and contradictory information about whether banning travel from six specific countries would make the nation safer.

The Maryland lawsuit also argues that it’s against federal law for the Trump administration to reduce the number of refugees allowed into the United States this year by more than half, from 110,000 to 50,000. Attorneys argued that if that aspect of the ban takes effect, 60,000 people would be stranded in war-torn countries with nowhere else to go.

Chuang made no immediate ruling.

In the Hawaii case, the federal government said there was no need to issue an emergency restraining order because Hawaii officials offered only “generalized allegations” of harm.

Jeffrey Wall of the Office of the Solicitor General challenged Hawaii’s claim that the order violates due-process rights of Ismail Elshikh as a U.S. citizen who wants his mother-in-law to visit his family from Syria. He says courts have not extended due-process rights outside of a spousal relationship.

Neal Katyal, a Washington, D.C., attorney representing Hawaii, called the story of Elshiskh, an Egyptian immigrant and naturalized U.S. citizen, “the story of America.”

In Washington state, U.S. District Judge James Robart — who halted the original ban last month — heard arguments in a lawsuit brought by the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, which is making arguments similar to the ACLU’s in the Maryland case.

Yesterday at the White House, President Donald J. Trump and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reaffirmed their support for a strong, broad, and enduring strategic partnership based on a shared interest and commitment to the stability and prosperity of the Middle East region. They directed their teams to explore additional steps across a broad range of political, military, security, economic, cultural, and social dimensions to further strengthen and elevate the United States-Saudi strategic relationship for the benefit of both countries.  U.S. and Saudi officials intend to consult on additional steps to deepen commercial ties and promote investment, and to expand cooperation in the energy sector. The President and the Deputy Crown Prince noted the importance of confronting Iran’s destabilizing regional activities while continuing to evaluate and strictly enforce the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.  The President expressed his strong desire to achieve a comprehensive, just, and lasting settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to continue the two countries’ consultations to help reach solutions for regional issues.  More broadly, the President and Deputy Crown Prince noted the ongoing security and military cooperation between the two countries in confronting Daesh/ISIS and other transnational terrorist organizations that pose a threat to all nations.

The two countries announced their determination to strengthen their cooperation in the economic, commercial, investment, and energy fields, with the aim of realizing growth and prosperity in the two countries and the global economy.  President Trump provided his support for developing a new United States-Saudi program, undertaken by joint U.S.-Saudi working groups, and its unique initiatives in energy, industry, infrastructure, and technology worth potentially more than $200 billion in direct and indirect investments within the next four years. The President also provided his support for United States investments in Saudi Arabia and the facilitation of bilateral trade, which will result in sizable opportunities for both countries.  On energy, the two countries affirmed their desire to continue bilateral consultations in a way that enhances the growth of the global economy and limits supply disruption and market volatility.

The two countries highlighted that expanded economic cooperation could create as many as one million direct American jobs within the next four years, millions of indirect American jobs, as well as jobs in Saudi Arabia.  The Deputy Crown Prince reviewed Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 program for the President and agreed to put in place specific bilateral programs to help both countries benefit from new opportunities created by the Kingdom’s implementation of those new economic plans.

The Highlights of President Trump’s Sixth Week In Office

President Trump plans for another busy week ahead as he faces more challenges and opposition to get his Cabinet complete with big tax and regulation cuts coming while fighting against illegal White House leaks.  We can all look forward with much anticipation as he: shapes, molds and repositions America into the superpower that she once was.  He has already decreased the National Debt by 12 billion dollars.  I would say he’s doing everything he promised and much more…I can’t wait to see what he does his sixth week in office!  This week we can expect to hear more about his modified executive order on immigration and Affordable Healthcare Act.  He will repeal and replace the failing Obamacare that’s crashing.  Monday he meets with the Nation’s Governors to discuss his plans and Tuesday he gives his first speech to Congress. It sounds like another exciting week for President Trump and our great Nation keep visiting our site as we update it as more information comes in.  God bless America!

Monday, February 27. We hear President Trump is cutting the budget to the EPA and plans on using this money and more to increase the budget for National Security and building up our military of 54 billion dollars.  President Trump is also meeting with leading health insurance companies around the Nation to discuss repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Press Conference:  The president is going to cut budgets and use unnecessary budgets to build up the military to keep America safe.  We are going to send less money overseas and use it here.  Mulvaney: Pres: Trump is proposing 603 billion to build our military.  The president met with 49 governors of the Nation how to rebuild America and our military.  The savings will be rational and beneficial to America.  We have to keep America safe and prosperous.

Spicer: For too long, the Federal Govt has not treated taxpayer dollars with respect, money has been wasted.  Not anymore…

Wilbur Ross, Secretary of Commerce should be confirmed today and signed in tomorrow.

The Pentagon presented its plan to defeat ISIS and what it will take.  We are concerned right now about the attacks going on against the Jewish people in our Nation. Everyone has the right to worship who they please we view this as a hate crime against Jews.

Tuesday, February 28, President Trump signed Into Law:

H.R. 255, which encourages the National Science Foundation to recruit and support women to expand their focus into the commercial world in its entrepreneurial programs;

H.R. 321, which requires the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to encourage women and girls to:  (1) study science, technology, engineering and mathematics; (2) pursue careers in aerospace; and (3) further the Nation’s space exploration efforts; and

H.J.Res. 40, which nullifies the Social Security Administration’s rule implementing the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Improvement Amendments Act of 2007.

Address to Congress:  Awesome!

I’m going to create new job opportunities for women.

Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice to put together a task force to get rid of those that have crossed across our Nation selling drugs.

We must have the rule of law at our borders.  We will start the construction along the southern border.  We are removing drug dealers and gangs that prey on our citizens.

Our obligation is to protect and defend U.S. citizens against radical Islam.

We will work with our allies to extinguish ISIS from our planet.

We are rebuilding our relationship with Israel.

We will defend our Constitution.

President Trump asks the senate to approve Justice Supreme Court Judge, Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

The time has come for National rebuilding.

America spent 6 trillion overseas and did nothing to rebuild America.

I will create new jobs for Americans by two cores buy American, hire American.

I will repeal and replace Obamacare. I will lower the price of healthcare insurance. Obamacare is failing and we must act to protect all Americans.

First, we should ensure that Americans with preexisting conditions have access to coverage and that we have a stable transition for Americans currently enrolled in the healthcare exchanges.

Secondly, we should help Americans purchase their own coverage through the use of tax credits and expanded Health Savings Accounts — but it must be the plan they want, not the plan forced on them by our government.

Thirdly, we should give our great state governors the resources and flexibility they need with Medicaid to make sure no one is left out.

Fourth, we should implement legal reforms that protect patients and doctors from unnecessary costs that drive up the price of insurance, and work to bring down the artificially high price of drugs, and bring them down immediately.

And finally, the time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines — (applause) — which will create a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring costs way down and provide far better care.  So important.

Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed.  Every problem can be solved.  And every hurting family can find healing and hope.
