Why is Trump Waiting to Rescind DACA?

I have written a lot of rather supportive articles lately about president Trump. I decided going in that I would praise him when it was warranted and criticize him when needed.

It’s only been a few days, and so far, he’s done more good than not. Yet I refuse to be one of Trump’s pom-pom boys (H/T Mark Levin) that cheer every word he utters.

This is one of those times when I feel I must, as others have, question the President.

One of the major issues – perhaps the major issue, and the one that put Trump on the map, was and is illegal immigration – specifically, building the wall and deportations.

It was my hope and understanding – and I’m certainly not the only one – that one of the very first issues Trump would address is immigration. Yet in a flurry of very positive Executive Orders, I didn’t see a single one pertaining to Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Executive Order. I personally was looking for the President to end the program on day one. read more

The Religion of Climate Change Takes Another Hit from Trump

I wasn’t a Trump supporter during the primaries – I was a Cruz guy all the way. Let me rephrase. I was (and am) a Constitution guy all the way. Although I did finally vote for Trump in the general election, I didn’t even really support him then.

I’m still not sold on the guy, but I have to say that he has pleasantly surprised me thus far, particularly in regard to one topic – his position on global warming.

The lie of man-caused global warming, or what the left ethereally calls “climate change,” has been a serious bone of contention for those of us the right for decades now. Democrat or Republican – it never seemed to have mattered. The left formed a religion around the hoax and the establishment right just went along, year after year, just, it seemed, to get along.

Cruz was, and is still, one of the few who stood steadfast against the lie, while Trump claimed he did. Like other things, I wasn’t sure I believed him. His rhetoric said he believed it was all a hoax, but I wasn’t certain he would follow through.

Then, after the election, I read from the Washington Post site of a request from the Trump transition team to the Energy Department, “asking agency officials to identify which employees and contractors have worked on forging an international climate pact as well as domestic efforts to cut the nation’s carbon output.” read more

The Women’s March – Brought to You in Its Entirety by George Soros

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The internet – conservative media in particular – is blowing up over the New York Times article showing the spontaneously organized grassroots “Women’s March,” which took place this past weekend around the globe, was anything but spontaneous or grassroots.

Somehow, in what would otherwise be an impossible task logistically, Women’s Marches sprung out of seemingly thin air to take place all over the globe. Many cities and towns in the U.S. took part – Washington D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and many others. There were marches in Paris, Buenos Aires, Sydney, New Delhi, Mexico City, and even Antarctica. Who knew there were so many dopey females who enjoyed wearing crocheted women’s parts on their heads?

However, I did not see reports of women marching in Iran, Saudi Arabia, or other Muslim-dominated countries. Just an observation.

Asra Q. Nomani wrote in the Times article  of just how “spontaneous” the groundswell of support for the march was. “The Guardian has touted the ‘Women’s March on Washington’ as a ‘spontaneous’ action for women’s rights. Another liberal media outlet, Vox, talks about the ‘huge, spontaneous groundswell’ behind the march. On its website, organizers of the march are promoting their work as ‘a grassroots effort’ with ‘independent’ organizers. read more

Podcast – Obama’s Global Warming Website is History

At exactly 12 noon on Friday, January 20, 2017, the White House website changed. Everything regarding global warming and climate change was removed and replaced with Trump’s pro-energy initiatives. Hooray for that!

Needless to say – but I’m going to say it anyway – the leftist global warming weenies are apoplectic that any mention to climate change has been removed. It’s as if man-caused climate change no longer exists – which is doesn’t – and hasn’t.

The liberal site “Motherboard” wrote that scientists and activists – one in the same in this case – are feverishly trying to download the vital government global warming data and save it for posterity, so it is not lost forever. That would a shame, wouldn’t it?

Listen, as I run through and pick apart the Motherboard article. read more

Enough of the Pomp and Circumstance – Let’s Get to Work

The nightmare is over – or has just begun, depending on your perspective. Now it’s time to get to work.

Obama is gone – although just for a few days. He’ll be back after he’s had a chance to reflect, or whatever he said he had to do. For Barack, this should take him about as long as it will take to fly to Palm Springs.

Of course Obama will feign silence upon his return to D.C. However, the press undoubtedly has instructions to seek him out for comment the minute President Trump signs his first order or does anything to undo the last eight horrible years. Then he will be forced by media badgering to answer their questions. It’s not his fault. He would prefer to stay quiet as other ex-presidents have done.

The inauguration went off without a hitch. No one was assassinated, like some in the media suggested might happen. The concerts are over, virtually all the inauguration balls are finished, as well as the parades and other festivities. All, in my opinion are a monumental waste of time, effort and money. read more

Andrew Young is More Reasonable than John Lewis

I’ve never been a fan of Andrew Young. I always knew him as Mayor of Atlanta, as he presided over the city when I lived there. But he was also a Jimmy Carter hack and executive director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, although it wasn’t nearly as radical back then as it is now.

In other words, Andrew Young is no conservative. Yet he has some rather reasonable responses to queries from Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Channel regarding the Trump inauguration.

Should Martial Law be Imposed as Rosie Insists?

One of the unique things about western society, western democracies, and our own representative republic, is the peaceful transition of power.

Many nations have never known such a thing, as power is simple bequeathed from one family member to another, as in Syria or North Korea. It may also be obtained by coup, military or otherwise. But our system is relatively new and atypical.

We fight it out for months at time – but when it’s finally over, a winner is declared and life goes on. Sure, the losers can and do cry crocodile tears from time to time, but at the end of the day, the politically vanquished peacefully give way to the victor(s), as will occur on Friday.

Sometime between 11 AM and 2 PM, Donald Trump and Mike Pence will take the Oath of Office and be sworn in as the next President and Vice President of the United States.

That is unless current President Barack Obama declares martial law and suspends the transfer of power. No really – some are suggested that this could happen, or should, at least according to one in particular. read more

Former Black Panther Destroys John Lewis

Former member of the radical`60’s era Black Panthers, Mason Weaver, went on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show last night to discuss civil rights icon John Lewis and Lewis’s feud with Donald Trump.

In a rather stunning exposé, Weaver completely dismantles Lewis’s argument that Trump is somehow illegitimate. Rather, Weaver insists that it is Lewis and the other phony social justice warriors who are illegitimate and are the ones to blame for all the problems of the black community.

Trump Meets With Possible Supreme Court Pick – The Left Hates Him

Judge William Pryor

Yesterday, Townhall.com reported  that President-elect Donald Trump had just met with one of the 21 members of his well-publicized supreme Court selection list.

The man Trump chose to meet with this past Saturday is Judge William Pryor of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The 11th Circuit services the States of Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Coincidently, Pryor served as deputy Attorney General of Alabama for two years under Jeff Sessions. After Sessions was elected to the Senate in 1997, Pryor was elevated to Alabama Attorney General. Small world isn’t it.

A few years later (2003) ‘W’ nominated him for the 11th Circuit, but the dems successfully stalled the pick. He was later recess-appointed by Bush and confirmed by a narrow margin. read more

Two Senators Have a Problem with Tillerson, but not Hillary Clinton or John Kerry

So far Donald Trump’s picks for various Cabinet positions have not gone swimmingly. Both Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have been grilled thus far.

Now, we would expect democrats to make a fuss, despite their inability to really affect the outcome of any of the confirmations. Heck, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, democrat hack and race hustler, even made history by attempting to dress down fellow Senator Sessions. But of course this was all a show for the TV cameras, as Booker is actually auditioning to be the next Obama, knowing that Obama gained national exposure for his keynote address at the 2004 Democrat National Convention. Obama was a nobody prior to that. After his performance, Booker is still a nobody.

What isn’t typical are two Republicans Senators openly stating that they are not only concerned with Tillerson and his ties with Russia, but can’t say whether they will vote for Trump’s Secretary of State selection.

On Wednesday, Rubio said he’s “prepared to what’s right,” regarding his confirmation vote. This sounds to me, at least for now, that “what’s right” is a no vote on Tillerson. read more
