The Jeffersonian Trump Flying Under the Radar….

Crowd sizes, Russians and Torture… Oh my. {{*snicker*}} Flares. Triggers. Shiny things.

Meanwhile it takes days before anyone in the swamp, and that specifically means those who report on swamp activity, fully grasp the scope of what is actually being done. There’s a good reason President Trump put a portrait of TJ in the Oval Office:

[…] When Trump promised that as president — on “day one” — he would begin to dismantle ObamaCare, some Republicans, many members of the press and most Democrats laughed at him. They are laughing no longer because the first executive order he signed on Jan. 20 directed those in the federal government who enforce ObamaCare to do so expecting that it will soon not exist.

.

(Seven Days Ago) […] Sec. 2. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (Secretary) and the heads of all other executive departments and agencies (agencies) with authorities and responsibilities under the Act shall exercise all authority and discretion available to them to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement of the Act that would impose a fiscal burden on any State or a cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications. (XO #1 Text)

Wait, what?… hang on.. huh?

Trump’s revolutionary act is a breeze of freedom on a sea of regulation. It recognizes something modern governments never admit — that they can be and have been wrong. It is exactly as Trump promised.

[Trump] ordered that regulations already in place be enforced with a softer, more beneficent tone, and he ordered that no penalty, fine, setoff or tax be imposed by the IRS on any person or entity who is not complying with the individual mandate, because by the time taxes are due on April 15, the IRS will be without authority to impose or collect the non-tax tax, as the individual mandate will no longer exist. Why take money from people that will soon be returned?

Then he ordered a truly revolutionary act, the likes of which I have never seen in the 45 years I have studied and monitored the government’s laws and its administration of them. He ordered that when bureaucrats who are administering and enforcing the law have discretion with respect to the time, place, manner and severity of its enforcement, they should exercise that discretion in favor of individuals and against the government.

This is radical coming from any president in the modern era of government-can-do-no-wrong. It is far more Thomas Jefferson, the small-government champion with whom Trump has never been associated, than it is Theodore Roosevelt, the super-regulator whom Trump has stated he admires.

This action recognizes the primacy and dignity of the individual and the fallibility of the state. It acknowledges the likely demise of ObamaCare. It is utterly without precedent since Jefferson’s presidency. (read more)

    ObamaCare was destined to become single payer if Hillary took office.

    Trump has stopped some of the funding and is working on gutting it and getting rid of everything the leftists like. While they might not be begging for a new health care law they will be pushing the most important aspects that Trump has removed.

    Remember there are many places in the Law were it was left to the discretion of the Secretary of Health and Human Services to make policy. Very different discretion between Obama’s Secretary and Trumps!

      Actually, single payer would make much more sense than Obamacare. At least with single payer you cut the HMOs out of the loop. Obamacare enriches the HMOs and restricts choice. It’s the worst of both worlds. Only Democrat neoliberals who climb into bed with Goldman Sachs could come up with it.

        Agree. Single Payer would’ve been better than Ocare and there is NO way Hillary would’ve done it. Dem owned Congress and WH when they passed Ocare.

        They had their one chance of a lifetime to do it and said “No Thanks”.

        Not really! SINGLE PAYER SUCKS! It puts the decision of whether you get particular health procedures in the hands of the government. You really want that?! Palin was mocked for talking about death panels, but in essense, that’s what you end up with. Some bureaucrat consults a manual and decides who gets what.

        You should read up on what happens when it’s put into practice. In some small socialist countries, it’s passable. In others like Britian’s, it is NOT. I remember reading stories of otherwise really healthy older individuals rendered totally incapacitated because they were 70 and deemed too old to get a knee replacement. Others died waiting for cancer treatment or diagnostic procedures because others came first.

        I would fight single payer to the death. It would be another wonky version of the disasterous “your-government-elites-know-best” Obamacare. No way, no how!

    And here comes Rand Paul to ensure that no matter what happens with Obamacare, the financial rape of this nation by the healthcare industry will continue. He’s seeks to exempt them from anti-trust: https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?singlepost=3416126

    This is how the swamp works. The health care industry must be getting nervous that Trump might start to figure out that all he has to do to fix this problem is to ENFORCE EXISTING LAW… So they lobby/feed this bill to their puppet Rand Paul. Disgusting.

    It will take time for the ones that are under-educated about our true history, brainwashed from all the cultural, spiritual harm that has been done for decades —- to get used to, appreciate and educated (hopefully) about how it SHOULD be and how good/beneficial it is to us. In addition, to get used to and more comfortable, trusting of Pres. Trump’s ways – which are very unprecedented.
    Those of us who have been properly informed and experienced what it was like to have a “better” country more “Conservative” shall we say, from youth are the ones enjoying all this and quite ecstatic. There will always be those who are stubbornly, willingly misinformed, etc. but more and more will come around as time goes on and more successes are achieved.

  8. Be very very careful aligning President Trump with President Jefferson. Most everything commonly ¨known¨ about Thomas Jefferson is false, or at best feel good hagiography.
    Though a poor writer one should read Thomas Fleming ¨The Great Divide¨ and then spend some shovel time in the quoted references he notes.
    Trump is Trump period. Thank God he is willing and able to serve.

      Discrediting Jefferson has been going on for over 40 years. The American History
      teacher I had in high school talked incessantly about Jefferson’s mistress, Sally.
      We heard nothing about Jefferson’s acheivements, beliefs, contribution to the
      country’s formation. Just that he was dipping his wick with a slave. This would be
      around 1972, so even then SJW types regarded Jefferson as a threat.

      • I do not mean either to give credit nor take away..rather that he was NOTHING like we were taught to believe. Think absolute master breathing straw under the swamp water operator…THAT is T. Jefferson.
        He did some good things and some bad things; mostly he he was an over educated pie in sky and in my gullet fantasist. He did indeed contribute mush high drama phraseology to the Declaration of Independence, sadly thay were never really implemented. The second revolution was a bloodless coup under George Washington and his acolytes to change the reality of the what we today call the Constitution of the United States of America. Maybe for the best; as he, Washington saw it. Certainly though it was never intended ¨The People¨ would or could in fact be the governing power… and so it goes today. Which IS our President Trump’s dilemma for whom we ardently trust and support in the quest to drain, dry, and plant a future on the swamp plains!

          Hmm Dunno.
          The pallet of cash Obama sent to the Iranians would have made Jefferson’s blood boil.
          Jefferson was humiliated in Europe when he, Franklin and Adams were sent to negotiate treaties and ask for financing to pay the Barbary states to release US captives held there. President Washington had no navy to enforce anything, so ransom payment was the only way to save whatever US citizen held in slavery that they could. Hundreds of captive Americans died over the years, alongside even more captive Europeans. The Europeans laughed at them and refused so the three US envoys left Europe humiliated and frustrated that the US gov’t had no means to rescue its citizens.

          Jefferson when he became POTUS discovering the U.S. gov’t payments to the Barbary Coast despots to allow US merchant ships to sail unmolested – until the despots’ state-sanctioned pirates grabbed another ship/crew/passengers and upped the price:
          “Hung between apoplexy and impotence.”

          When Jefferson got the new, cutting edge frigates he sent the brand new US Navy to negotiate by blockade and directly attacking the pirate ships. The treaties to end hostilities and the racket lasted until 1815 – when the Barbary despots believed England’s version of the War of 1812 that the US had been brought to its knees and thought they could re-boot the ransom protection racket business by capturing another US merchant ship for leverage to demand payment. POTUS Madison looked less imposing than that other pest Jefferson… so…

          Big mistake. Hot shot brand new navy lieutenants during the first Barbary War came charging back to North Africa as battle-hardened commanders who had just defeated the British.

          mmm… thnking those 1800 POTUS’s would see a lot of parallels today.

        Everyone (including Brian Kilmeade) says Jefferson fathered Sally Hemmings’ children. There is no proof of that. What was able to be proved was that her children were ‘Jeffersons’ . . . . not necessarily Thomas’. He did have a brother who bedded many women and Sally’s children could be his, There is no way that it can be proved genetically that Thomas Jefferson was the father, only that a Jefferson was.

      I have no sympathy for the GOP congress. We elected a GOP House in 2010 largely based on reaction to Obamacare. We elected a GOP Senate in 2014 so they could get things done. Now 8 years after Obamacare was rammed through (and long after its flaws have been revealed) with no excuses left to avoid action, they don’t have a better plan?!? Heads need to role (proverbially).

      they used their primary splitter strategy and old backstabbing tricks – which worked just fine until 1/20/2017.
      trump can and will blow any old guard recalcitrant repubs outta the water.
      you run 5 “tea party” noms against your incumbent and trump will pick and announce the “tea party” winner well in advance. any incumbent specifically opposed by trump is history.
      what a wonderfully tangled web trump weaves.

    Biggest story today is the Mole inside the Republican lawmakers weekend gabfest that recorded and sent to WaPo the fact that neither the House nor the Senate has any clue on what to replace Ocare with, without harming people who will be used in ads like an ax in 2018 against them if they don’t get it right.
    1. Who’s the mole?
    2. Didn’t the republicans scan for listening devices?
    3. All those on the tape have confirmed that it was them – ie, no denials of the story.

    They were supposed to be working on this for 7 freaking years. What’s wrong with them?

    “mush high drama phraseology to the Declaration of Independence”…???

    There is no Constitution without the Declaration and they are intrinsically linked. Without the Declaration there is no purpose to the Constitution. Jeffersons words ARE the Revolution.

    And here is a bottom line fact. Thomas Jeffersons election ushered in a 6 term 24 year run for his Republicans that followed his ideas and that is completely unmatched in US history. It completely wiped out his opposition the Federalists at all layers of government and resulted in the Era of Good Feelings It means Jeffersonian democracy was pretty much accepted by the whole country.

    If you believe at all in the rule of the people, democracy and representative government- Jefferson was extraordinary. Cause if he wasn’t, no one is.
