Many of you know I attend a Kaffee-klatch every week where a small group and I discuss current events in the context of the Constitution. I keep a list of Trump’s presidential accomplishments to keep us going (like pulling us out of the Paris Accord, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol, growing the economy as evidenced by more stock market records than ever before, etc.), but our meetings often devolve into bitch-fests about the government in general and the latest assault on our liberty by both sides. A recent example of this would be the taxpayer-funded secret slush fund that Congress has that they have been using to pay off victims of sexual assault. Now this has evolved into demanding that President Trump immediately resign because of the many women who’ve come forward to accuse him of forcing himself on them. Stop right there! Did you happen to catch the idiots screaming at the sky not too long ago lamenting the 1-year anniversary of the election of Donald Trump? Or how about the woman’s march right after he was elected?
Now ask yourself, just how difficult would it be to come up with 18 women (or whatever the current number may be) to claim that Trump assaulted them? Answer: Not hard at all. But they’ve thrown Franken under the bus, so they have to stick to this tactic. Remember the narrative has changed from Russian collusion, to obstruction of justice and now to sexual assault requiring he step down from office. If the Dims take the House in the 2018 midterms, Trump’s impeachment will be job-1.
But back to my original story line here. What has Trump done besides Tweet (aside from driving the progs out of their ever-loving minds)? President Trump has drastically reduced regulations. His executive order right after he was inaugurated mandated that for every new regulation, two must be eliminated. But Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Mick Mulvaney reports that the ratio is in fact 22/1. This is huge. If you’ve ever run your own business or tried to start a business you would know this. Twenty percent of all small businesses fail in the first year and government regulations have a lot to do with this. The economy under Nobama (as measured by GDP) never reached 3% in his entire 2 terms, but Trump has achieved that for 2 quarters in a row & consumer confidence is at a 17-year high. He’s on a roll and doesn’t intend to stop. We don’t expect the Dims to support anything he does (they’re still screaming at the sky) but just imagine if he had the GOP behind him!
