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 Seventh Week In Office

The week starts out with a blast from the past as we find out that the  Obama Administration, Deep State secretly wiretapped President Trump going all the way back to October when he was the Republican Party’s presidential candidate.  The information coming out could be worse than the Nixon Watergate.  It could very well be the final nail that sinks the Democratic Party.  The democrats have been reaching for straws and digging in the trash to find something against this current administration, and with no luck, they’ve found nothing.  Obama even set up his own coop to bring President Trump down but it seems the harder he tries the more he sinks himself with lies and deceit. He even had his former administration spread lies about the Russian conspiracy when the truth is, it all goes back to the Obama Administration and the well-known publicized Russian Ambassador that made his way around Washington D.C. and New York City with the help of the Democratic Party.  The so-called dangerous conspirator even gave a speech at John Hopkins with his name listed as a guest speaker.  He isn’t your ordinary spy or man undercover.  And come to find out it was the Obama Administration that set up the meeting with the Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Russian Ambassador Sergei Kyslak.  So when is all of this nonsense going to end?  I don’t know about you, but I am so tired of hearing about the Russian Conspiracy and how they hacked and influenced the election.  The Democratic Party needs to realize that Americans were sick and tired of our country being given away piece by piece and all the good paying jobs going overseas.  Americans were tired of having a president that stirred racial tension and showed no respect for our military and divided our Nation and weakened our military.  We could only expect worse with a Hillary win. Let it go. Let it go! I never liked Obama anyway!  Trump is our new president!

Monday, March 6, President Trump presents modified executive order on travel ban that will go into effect March 16, 2017. Instead of 7 (7-T) listed as the most dangerous countries, there’s now (6) excluding Iraq since we have military already there and Iraq is working closely with us now.

The new order:

  • Better Explains Inclusions of selected countries
  • New Order Takes Effect In 10 Days
  • Blocks Those Without a Valid Visa As of January 27.
  • Iraq Now Off Of List
  • Indefinite Syrian Ban Has Been Lifted
  • Green Card Holders Not Affected
  • No Religious Preferences

President Trump made new allegations this weekend against former President Obama and his administration that there was wiretapping in the Trump Tower that happened when he was the presidential nominee.  This sparked a new investigation on the democratic side.  And it looks like verily well what he said is true as evidence mounts against the former administration and their public agenda to bring the Trump Administration down.

Meanwhile, America waits for the new healthcare plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Tuesday, March 7, new health care plan comes out with phase 1. Health Care Bill to Go Out to Congress March 19

Obamacare Replaced

American Health Care Plan

Remember there will be 3 Phases

Phase 1 The new health care bill will lower prices across the nation and make it more affordable, with more coverage and children can still stay on the bill until the age of 26 if need be.  You can still get coverage with pre-existing illnesses. People can use tax credits to help pay for their health care. They lifted the insurance penalty.

Wednesday, March 8, the debate on the new American Health Care Plan continues.  Some republicans see it as the beginning to repeal and replace Obamacare. We can expect to see it modified throughout the week as they come together for a new health care plan.

This would be up to the department of justice and how they would handle it based on classified information.”

Senator Cotton believes the new health care bill is D.O.D. “Senator Cotton is welcome to submit his ideas and input. Senator Cotton knows Obamacare is no good. The president wants to hear anyone with ideas.  We want to make sure the health care bill is good, we want to make sure that we do it right.  That’s why there are three phases of the health care bill.”

The president is more than qualified to understand the economy as a businessman.

We feel confident that we are going to get a lot done in 2017.

President is concerned about the high cost of pharmaceutical drugs he’s working to bring the cost down.

The Highlights of President Trump’s Second Week In Office

President Trump had a very busy second week in office.  He’s wasting no time getting his Cabinet in order. The only hold back is the democratic party trying to chain his hands back.  This is a very dangerous time in history to try to prevent or stop someone from taking office. We saw democrats boycott not showing up to vote or confirm people for the Trump Administration. We saw the republicans take charge. It was a very interesting second week for the Trump Administration and how they had to overcome barriers and blockades.  President Trump showed his tough side and soft side this week.

  • Neil Gorsuch nominated for Supreme Court Justice to take the place of deceased Supreme Court Justice, Scalia.
  • Rex Tillerson confirmed as the new Secretary of State.
  • President Trump fires attending Attorney General Yates for refusal to obey orders. “She’s fired!”
  • Jeff Sessions confirmed as the new attorney general 11-9 in favor.
  • Elaine Chao confirmed as Transportation Secretary.
  • Sanctions placed on Iran for erratic missile testing.
  • Defense Secretary General Mattis makes his first visit to Asia.
  • USS Cole sent back again to patrol Yemen Coast
  • Russian sanctions to continue in Trump Administration, Russia continues to be aggressive in the Ukraine.
  • President Donald J. Trump meets with America’s top C.E.O.s to bring 227,000 jobs back to America lifting EPA regulations.
  • President Donald J. Trump gets eerie unsuspected surprise by former Obama Administration’s agreement to take in thousands of immigrants from South America that are in Australia.
  • President Donald J. Trump gets the estimate to build the border wall or fence with an estimate of 18 billion dollars.  Sadly the 150 billion dollars that the Obama Administration gave to Iran would build 8 border walls.  The estimated timeline for the new border wall is 2 years for completion.
  • President Donald J. Trump attended his first National Day of Prayer. He admitted it was his faith that kept his administration strong.
  • EPA Scott Pruitt confirmed as the administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • President Trump signs 2 Executive Orders to regulate the financial system the Dodd Frank Act to remove regulations on small businesses that cripples the economy and the other one rolling back financial regulations on the retired people, they should nor be limited for an economical opportunity.

  • President Trump on January 27th signs Executive Order temporarily banning entries from seven of the most dangerous countries in the world known for training, harboring and exporting terrorist these countries were Libya, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen and Somalia for 90 days without proper clearance and vetting.  This was the same most dangerous list the Obama Administration was using. He wanted time to make sure terrorist weren’t infiltrating into America as refugees. This was the most controversial order this week. He did it for the safety of Americans.  There were a lot of protest going on because they didn’t understand the ban.  Some saw it as a target against Muslims.  President Trump said he did it to stop a lot of bad guys from coming in! His executive order was not a ban against Muslims or religion, it was a ban against danger. These seven countries were listed as the most dangerous countries in the world.  The biggest concern now seems to be the proper vetting of refugees without someone getting offended.  After seeing the chaos happening around the world heads being cut off and mad naked men running around eastern Europe stabbing and attacking people with machetes, how can you protect people when some don’t want to be protected, how do you protect America?  President Donald J. Trump doesn’t have the easiest job in the world and he’s responsible for the safety of America and to give the executive orders when he feels Americans are in danger.  After all, he’s only been in office 2 weeks, we need to give him time to adjust and make the necessary changes for the good of the Country.  At least now we have a president that’s working for the good of the people! God bless America and keep her safe, and please God, watch over this administration and keep them safe!

If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair. So we are going to help them.”
