The Trump Tsunami: The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

I want to be Donald J. Trump when I grow up.

I want his power and position and wealth, but I want my own superhero ‘Batman’ like man cave too.

The reason being, it’s going to take super powers to undo the damage the world is in. Trump is a manager. He may be dramatic but he gets things done and when the dust settles, things smooth out. Now that he’s taken the Oath of Office, and is our 45th president, he’s showing how powerful he is by using a president’s best weapon: The executive order signing.

As soon as he got to the White House, Trump came out swinging and signing. It's happened so fast that it will take a while to compile what he's signed. He's going to keep his word regarding illegal immigration, repealing Obamacare, and a ton of prior policies. You could almost hear Obama crying in the wind and perhaps it's good that he is. Obama got stonewalled by Republicans for nothing more than greed and racism. However, Obama started out with the high ground with the legislative branches then run by the Democrats. He lost ground and many say it was because of his arrogance. Instead of reaching out to the Americans who could have decided other elections, especially in the electorate states, Obama wandered around showboating and profiling with celebrities like Beyonce and tending to the LGBT community. By the time he stuck his head up the voting power switched from liberal to conservative and cost the Dems the election of 2016.

Let that be a lesson. A big head does not a president make.

Because of this, Obama left everyone else in the lurch who needed help. They had had enough of exploitation, some from the same banking and real estate companies that put them dire straits in the first place.

Now Trump has the pen and he's looking like a Jedi Knight swinging that bad boy at everything he disagrees with. It's going to take a week to see the ramifications of this all and we can all expect the upheaval of many a poor institution. Governments will tremble, criminals will cringe, villains will be vanquished, and at the end of the day the American People may come out stronger than ever, and that's what the enemy fears.

Is Trump crazy?
I was wondering this last night. Today, a well known columnist came right out and said it. And then there is Trump, telling congressional leaders 3 million to 5 million illegal votes cost him the popular vote.” That is a lie. It is patently untrue. That is a lie he has told before, and it has been completely and thoroughly debunked. No one believes it but him, and there is not a shred of evidence to support it- not for thousands, not for tens of thousands, never mind millions.

It is part of an ongoing rant directed at invisible enemies.

It is a grandiose claim with no backing in reality.

Mentally healthy people do not do this.

KAP,
What? Not one AG in the country, not Jeff Sessions, not a single one from any state, supports the claim that there were millions of illegal votes.

It is an astounding claim, and it undermines our democracy. Trump repeated it today, based on studies and evidence, but no one knows what he is referring to. Despite the astounding claim, Trump claims voter fraud “is not a priority.”

I think we might be seeing mental illness on display. Others believe Trump is signaling the GOP to engage in full scale voter suppression next election.

phx8 I never said there were either. But it wouldn’t surprise me if something like millions of illegals voting in Calif. I’m not claiming they did but just saying it wouldn’t surprise me if they did. It wouldn’t surprise me if it happened in your state.

KAP,
I live in Oregon. We vote by mail. Unlike many states, there is a paper trail. That kind of voter fraud would be easy to catch. I don’t understand why states vote on computers without paper trails. I don’t understand why states tolerate long lines for voting. All too often, it seems the intent is to suppress the vote, rather than encouraging people to vote. Our voter participation rate is already incredibly low.

We are the only country in the industrialized free world that seeks to suppress voting, rather than encourage it through automatic forms of registration.

By the way, Oregon and its vote by mail system has a MUCH higher participation rate than the rest of the country.

I know you live in Oregon, phx8. I’m in Ohio. The voter participation is low because all you have to do is look at the candidates, like Hillary and Trump.

How would anyone at the federal level know about voter fraud when voting is controlled and administered by the county.

At the individual level only the county is involved. If a county wants to commit voter fraud it’s entirely possible for them to do it and get away with it. Many have. Even at the state level there would be no way to investigate voter fraud without the county’s participation.

For someone at the federal level to say there is no voter fraud is just talk. To base any decision based on what someone at the federal level thinks is irresponsible.

WW,
The Secretary of State (at the state level) is the most important single person for determining the fairness of an election.

The idea that 3-5 million illegal votes for Trump would occur, yet have no discernible effect on down ticket races, is laughable. People would be going bonkers if a few Senate, a lot of Senate, and a whole lot of local elections were swayed by illegal votes.

Sometimes I wonder if Trump is just crazy, or it really is a way of undermining democracy, or nothing more than a way to keep people from paying attention to the horrowshow of cabinet appointees testifying. Price is an absolute nightmare nominee for HHS, a poster child for corrupt politicians. Betsy DeVos, the nominee for Education, humiliated herself. That was one for the worst appearances anyone has ever made. She was just bad. Nothing good can come from putting such a blatantly unqualified person at the head of a large organization. What a disaster. Boy, I hope her campaign contributions to Trump were absolutely enormous, because there is no other possible justification for giving a person like that an important job.

You might consider the possibility that pessimism defeated the Democratic party, phx8.

I can say one good thing about your mail in voting system. It has a paper trail. I think that is the most important attribute of a trustworthy voting system.

The volume of paper your system consumes is a valid and increasing problem. I am in favor of revamping the voting procedure to be the same as making a transaction at your local ATM. I think it’s a worthwhile subject to consider. It would be fun to articulate that kind of voting environment.

phx8 declares nearly every day that he, and only he, has infinite knowledge, superb judgement, and infallible instinct in everything political. We bow to this superior god-man from Oregon. It must be lonely to be so exalted.

Back on earth, I believe President Trump is proceeding according to his campaign promises. How rare is that?

Very soon we will have the presidents choice for Supreme Court Justice. We can all wait for that to happen or…perhaps phx8 will just consult his oracle self and tell us.

We can expect 4 years of Democratics trash talking Trump. We have to guard against the fake news they’ll use to satisfy their lust for destruction.
Remember how Harry Reid bragged about lying to slander Romney? They have no shame and we shouldn’t put anything past them.

Tonight Trump tweeted:

“If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible “carnage” going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!”

Hey! Who’s up for a little martial law?!

phx8, Somebody got to step in and do something about all the shootings in Chicago, the murder capital of the U.S. Rahm sure isn’t up to the job.

KAP,
The Illinois National Guard should go in if there was a serious enough problem. “The Feds,” whoever they are, normally do not go into states, and that assumes anyone knows who “The Feds” are in the first place.

The Chicago Police say their biggest problem is guns coming in from next door, in IN. Lax gun laws in that state contribute to the killings in Chicago.

I really don’t think it is time to suspend the Constitution.

Comment #412571

phx8, I listen to a Lawyer yesterday and he said the Feds have every right to exact any means possible to stop the senceless shootings in Chicago. If federalizing the National guard so be it. It don’t seem like Rahm is doing anything about it.

The ‘Feds’ were sent to Sanford, Florida.
The ‘Feds’ were sent to Ferguson, Missouri.
Everyone without a partisan agenda knows who the ‘Feds’ are and what they can and cannot do.

The biggest problem with Chicago violence is culture. Guns are nothing but an excuse to explain away that violent culture and the failure of the government in dealing with it.

kctim,
“Everyone without a partisan agenda knows who the ‘Feds’ are and what they can and cannot do.”

The Missouri National Guard went into Ferguson at the request of the MO governor. I do not know of any ‘Feds’ who went into Ferguson, other than the DOJ providing oversight of the local police.

Sending in ‘The Feds’ sounds like it involves declaring martial law.

KAP & kctim,
“…the Feds have every right to exact any means possible to stop the senceless shootings in Chicago.”

So it would be ok to declare martial law and take away the guns of everyone within, say, a mile of the epicenter of violence?

Comment #412575

Phx8,
Yes, President Obama sent ‘The Feds’ into Ferguson and Sanford and other places. In fact, when it was President Obama, the left pretty much demanded that ‘The Feds’ be sent in. But when it’s a Republican President, it’s now automatically “declaring martial law”? Come on man.

Comment #412576

phx8, What do you suggest Rahm to do? He has been Mayor since 2011 and the carnage hasn’t subsided. Somebody has to do something if a Gov. and Mayor can’t see or are just turning a blind eye to the problem.

I know why phx8 has his panties in a twist.

Black mothers have been killing their children for years. Those in Chicago are just mopping up the ones who’ve escaped the womb.

phx8 is just protecting the Democratic’s agenda with his screed.

“So it would be ok to declare martial law and take away the guns of everyone within, say, a mile of the epicenter of violence?”

Absolutely not.
It is a cultural problem that the people of Chicago refuse to address, and a failure of the local and state governments. Not a 2nd Amendment problem.

Trumps making cases to attempt and get consideration or make question about Obama to pick up energy for his potential run. Shockingly he’s gotten it, With Trump you never realize what he’ll do next or what he has up his sleeve, I beleive hes still on an Obama kick attempting to get Obama to discharge his Educational records.

know why phx8 has his underwear in a turn.

Dark moms have been slaughtering their youngsters for quite a long time. Those in Chicago are simply cleaning up the ones who’ve gotten away from the womb.

phx8 is recently securing the Democratic’s motivation with his screed.
