President Donald Trump Only Needs GOPe Ryan For Three Legislative Acts…

Part IV – Much of what we need to know about President Donald Trump’s approach we can discover within two books we know he read several years ago:  Dr. Norman Vincent Peale – “The Power of Positive Thinking”, and Zig Ziglar – “Goals“.

.

If you had been publicly opposed to the chosen economic fork in the road for over 30 years; •if you were now 68-years-old and fed-up with the continuation down the wrong path; •if you were planning and strategically thinking in big, bold and consequential terms about taking on the challenge of realignment; •if you knew the scope of the challenge and all those who would oppose your efforts; •if you established personal financial security for yourself and your family in preparation,… well perhaps, just perhaps you would have studied and mapped out a goal when you stepped into the arena.

What remains is execution of a plan.

United-States-Branches-of-Government

Despite the MSM presentations to the contrary, President Trump doesn’t need Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, or even congress to execute 80% of an America-First economic strategy. President Trump actually only needs three things:

♦ A budget approved.
♦ A tax reform plan approved.
♦ ObamaCare repealed and replaced.

That’s it. Essentially, just those three things. If President Trump can gain those three items of legislative support from congress, he can fill in the road map for an America First economic platform leading to massive GDP growth and success.

Oh sure, there are other aspects that will come into play and set the table for negotiation and pragmatic outline; but if congress can simply deliver on those three items the rest becomes details.

♦ The domestic security agenda is largely reliant upon enforcing laws that are already currently on the books.  DHS Secretary Kelly goals and objectives ongoing. Once enforcement mechanisms are carried out, congress can debate and adjust future policy down the road.

♦ The foreign policy agenda, interests and security, is more fluid and based on fluctuating events outside of the U.S. circle of influence.  T-Rex deconstructing the globalist tentacles from the Dept. of State is also ongoing.

However, on the economic side – nothing makes America more secure, and influential, than a thriving and growing U.S. economy.  The economic policy within the Trump platform really is the fulcrum upon which all other policy objectives will balance.

If you stand back, away from the fog of tone created by an oppositional left-wing media, you can clearly see how the longer term U.S. economic growth will influence decades of all other policy long after President Trump leaves office in 2025.

Undermining the U.S. economy via cultural and economic globalism is the tool and technique used by the Frankfurt School for decades.  If President Trump is able to cut the web of concentric and restrictive tentacles he will have done more to advance the cause of domestic freedom than any President in the last 100+ years.

Goals:

1. Identify the goal
2. Identify the benefits from reaching the goal
3. List the major obstacles of reaching the goal
4. Identify the skill or knowledge required to achieve the goal
5. Identify the individuals, groups and organizations to work with
6. Develop a plan of action
7. Set a completion date

      AND how ironic, those are the three things the Uniparty does not want to do. {heh-heh!}
      That is why they are dragging their feet. Oh, they’ll do it, before the end of the year, not because they want to….but because next year, 2018 is an election year.

      This is what they have done for the last 2 decades.

        Imo we need to nab a few more Senate seats by: 1. 2018 election, 2. Via the CNN Leaks and other data, FBI needs to investigate with the full intentional of prosecuting via Grand Jury indictment McKane/his foundation which takes foreign $$.

        I believe he would be found gulty of many laws; hence, sentence & remove from office.

        No more acceptance by an act of omission of illegal activity by McKane and all others contributing to such actions. No more equivocating. Time for full fledged action. Too much damage to be done by waiting for his next election.

        We can’t fall into the trap of the politicians who are all words and not action. This will make it clear to GOPe they are going to be drained also.

                There seems to be a piece missing from this sentence. But, if you were trying to say a natural born citizen is one born of two citizen parents, I’ve seen no real evidence of this. For that matter, I can’t even find anything authoritative (rather than some guy just making bald assertions on the internet) that “Natural born citizen” even means “native born.”

                Perhaps all it means is “a citizen who was not naturalized.” I.e., a citizen at birth. Again, no one has been able to show me anything to the contrary that doesn’t just amount to some guy on the internet ranting.

By extension of that argument, no murder could would be prosecutable if one were unsolved. Regardless of Former President Obama’s actual qualifications, he assumed office under the pretense that he was qualified, so the qualification is still in effect.

              Regardless, bright as President Trump’s children are, we don’t need another political dynasty to replace the two we finally just got rid of. It’s early days now. In six years we can start worrying about finding a new Real American standard bearer. As for now, 2018 is just around the corner.

              And this is quite possibly the real reason why Trump is facing all these violent protests and riots.

              Everyone expected Hillary to win and the status quo to continue, particularly the lack of questions concerning Obama’s origins and his eligibility for the presidency.

              Trump could, and may well, clarify the natural born citizen issue once and for all via the Supreme Court, even if it results in Tiffany being the only eligible child of his to be able to run for president.

              Obama’s team resorted to the earliest conception — by necessity — of natural born citizen. Historically, once America was well established, the norm was that both mother and father were naturalised US citizens before giving birth to a child who ran for president.

              The only exception was in the 19th century: Chester Arthur, who kept his Ulster-born father — not a US citizen at the time of Chester’s birth — under careful wraps. At least one investigative reporter of the time knew and tried to get to the root of the story, but it died with Arthur as president. His story did not come out until Obama ran and won.

So, only if the bank robber was tried and found not guilty even with evidence showing he did, in fact, rob the bank, and the case appealed and won, could that case be cited as a precedent for a future bank robber.
            Now, there is the ordinary meaning of “precedent” meaning something that happened earlier in time, as in the President attending the WH Correspondents’ Dinner… but that’s another subject.

    SD you are absolutely right. We are seeing it with immigration and the direction Secretary Kelly is moving on enforcing the current laws on the book. Obamacare is the last piece that the CoC is holding onto. The problem for them and the GOPe is that it was setup to fail bigly by 2017 and more so in 2018. The plan was for HRC to take the country into a single payer system.

    As much as the CoC and the Uniparty want to hold onto Obamacare, they can’t. The fact that the very first EO signed by our President was for federal agencies to look out for the interest of the people over the government when it comes to enforcing Obamacare regulations was a massive dagger in its side. On February 3rd, the IRS said it will process all tax returns that leave the healthcare box empty. That means Americans are no longer having to pay that tax. That is a lot of revenue that the government will lose.

    Aetna and Houma came out 2 or so weeks ago and declared that the ACA was on its death spiral. One of the two are leaving it this year and the other is seriously considering leaving it in 2018. There is no way in hell that our President will throw any additional money at it.

    With all that said, the Uniparty has no choice but to repeal and replace it. Once they allow folks to buy across state lines, competition will cause prices to come down. Once more and more Americans find full time jobs with healthcare, less and less Americans will need government health coverage.

    As for the taxes, I truly believe that Secretary Mnuchin and others are drafting that legislation. I also believe our President when he says that because of how the fiscal budget works, Obamacare has to come first and taxes afterwards even though taxes would be much easier to get done and they are a couple of weeks away from releasing their plan. Our President has single handily gotten the stock market to an all time high. According to Lou Dobbs it has gained $2.9 Trillion dollars since November 8th. The reason being is that every time he meets with business leaders our talks about the economy he talks about his tax plan for middle class and businesses. He has completely placed his entire administration on it.

    Because of what I shared above and the fact our President doesn’t need the CoC or anyone else to write the legislation and will have his folks take care of it, there is absolutely nothing and I mean nothing Lying Ryan and Mitch the Bitch can do from stopping it! The wheels were put in motion by Obozo years ago. They never in their right minds taught the LION would be there to take it forward.

My mother, oddly, at lunch the other day said something like – “I wonder what your father would have thought of Trump?” I found it odd, that she had been married to the man since 17 years of age until his death in 2010, how could she not KNOW that my dad would have saw someone that has the same values and morals in Trump that made him successful in all areas of life. From small town mid-west town , worked 2 jobs while putting himself though college and still taking care of wife and child, from a construction excavation crew to 100% commission salesperson, to VP of a major swimming pool construction company. Never made once did I hear him make excuses.

    Realizing w/ this insightful post, why she would not have just KNOWN what he would think of Trump… Not only was my father a wonderful father and husband, He perfected his trade though out his entire life — as much as he was an amazing father, husband, friend, etc – I worked for him for 7 years out of high school and saw a what impressive characteristics that made him successful in the business world.

    On his spare time (not even sure if he knew what that met), he would go to seminars and read/listen to authors and successful motivational speakers, then implement what he learned into his own “best life practices”. His home office shelves were lined w/ authors like Zig Zigler.

    Thank you, Sundance, for another insightful posting. Sorry for such a personal story. 🙂

      Gov. Scott Walker seems to have worked out a successful program for Wisconsin. One of the advantages of having multiple states try various methods of delivery is that good, better and best choices become apparent in time. Perhaps some of the governors are not as creative as they should be. Or as financially responsible. Or as business-oriented. Or…

      The solution is simple, but it will face a huge battle as it takes trillions away from that elite crowd Sundance has discussed. The one that has been leaked this week is another disaster-in-waiting. The consumer must control the market and choices if costs are to be driven downward.

    President Trump actually only needs three things:

    ♦ A budget approved.
    ♦ A tax reform plan approved.
    ♦ ObamaCare repealed and replaced.

    One major flaw in this simplisticism:
    He needs the support of the American population. Right now he has only 23% of the electorate and a low popularity rating. This is not a force to ignore.

        I can see Linda’s intent and from my own research, the numbers are worse than what appears.
        The first thing to do is stop seeing the numbers you want to see and face the facts.

        As mentioned earlier: Here is the 314 on it.

        316M people in the US.
        242M are eligible to vote.
        63M or 26% of them voted for Trump.
        179M or 74% did not vote for Trump.

        Whether or not these people are registered or even voted at all and what other candidates had are moot points.

        The point remains: No mandate and these people are a force with which to contend.
        The common whine is that I will not post my sources to feed the conspiracy theories because the questions are easy to look up. If my facts are wrong, post yours.

        OK, I really did not think that this was all that complicated. You can ask the simple questions and seek the source you like best. I am sure that if I supplied the URLs then the shout would be “Fake News” and “Alternate Facts”. So, find yours and present them.

        Here is the 314 on it:

        How many people were eligible to vote in 2016?
        Subtract the number of people that voted for Trump.
        Compare that to the over all total and you get 23%.
        In other words, 77% of the electorate did not vote for him.
        Whether or not they actually voted is moot.

        The question about popularity is just as easy.

        For either of these, you may well get differing results but the final answers will be similar. There is no mandate. He does not have free reign. He has to remember that he and congress are there to serve us. He cannot just appease only 23% of the voting public.

        Trump cannot just go in and Executive-Order everything to his liking. Well, yes he can but getting to stick will be the problem. I doubt that any democrat in congress will accept much of he wants to do but there are also republicans that don’t like some what he is doing.

        There are safe guards to protect the country from extremism. He has run many companies, many successfully, but he has never had to contend with CEOs or corporate boards.

        He needs to learn how to do so now.

    For this baby boomer, you’re right on target, Sundance. I am 68 years old and I have to wonder:
    What would America be like today if Bush 1 had continued Reagan’s policies? Just consider the domino-effect that would have occurred if George ‘read my lips, no new taxes’ Bush had been a conservative instead of a globalist. It breaks my heart what these jackals have done our country.
    As Andrew Jackson once said, …
    “It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government… You have no longer any cause to fear danger from abroad…. It is from within, among yourselves–from cupidity, from corruption, from disappointed ambition and inordinate thirst for power– that factions will be formed and liberty endangered. It is against such designs, whatever disguise the actors may assume, that you have especially to guard yourselves.”
    And Reagan:
    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

      Very good point about Bush 1.

      If Bush 1 had continued the Regan legacy instead of screwing it up or reversing it, not only would Bush 1, not of ended up with the ‘read my lips no new taxes’ fiasco, he likely would of won a 2nd term, and Ross Perot would never of ran as third party because there would of been no need for him to do so, he likely would of stayed out of it.

      The irony is actually amazing when you think about it. Bush 1 and his globalist garbage not only destroyed any chance he had of winning a 2nd term, but it also gave Ross Perot the opening he needed, and ended up putting a Clinton in the white house, which started the whole Clinton dynasty.. and in many ways gave birth to Crooked Hillary..

      Actually we can blame the Bushes for a lot of things!

    When Wilbur Ross is in place at Commerce, with Mnuchin and Gary Gould already in place,
    the power of this triad for tax reform and budget approval will be immense. There is more than leverage among these three. There is immense pressure from business, finance, banking, investment and corporate CEOs who smell real growth. Trump will pound Ryan with these hammers. Greed out in the marketplace is like meth and Growth is waiting impatiently. Ryan will have to hold off these men and all their plans and personal sacrifices in order to stand in Trump’s way.

    Ross is putting his billions into a trust, Munchin hundreds of millions and Gould hundreds of millions
    while losing their incomes in the tens of millions for $1 a year service.

    I don’t see how Ryan can stiff them. Oh, he’ll try. But he’ll find out these guys want Growth for all Americas. They really have bought into Trump’s agenda and will see it enacted. They aren’t doing it for fun or politics. These are capitalists who understand the country is weak and needs to be restructured economically. Ryan is roadkill from Janesville if he stands in their way.

  24. Ponder how deep the hypnotic sleep and conditioning from the media is, when so many people still turn up here to “help us” by telling what some lapdog media clown says about some political whore. Then the same sleepers repeat the talking points about this politician or that politician and where they are on an “issue”.

    The only thing modern politicians are good at is competing against each other for “elected” office, and they destroy any real choice between candidates and shut out the best people from being a candidate all together.

    Now President Trump arrives, with a team entirely based on competency for task. They will have to deal with self serving parasites in “government” to get anything done.

    Just as when you erect a building, you minimise the involvement of the parasites and the other grifting scum and just get the concrete poured and the walls up.

    Same thing is happening with the Trump administration.

Besides– they need Trump at least until after the 2018 midterms to solidify the census and gerrymander districts.

    1. Natural-born brings to mind “organic,” or even “homegrown.” There was the inclusion of the exception for immigrant status, necessary but also would phase out. Why bother with such distinctions if it didn’t matter?
    Also a Naturalized citizen is not the same as natural. Naturalized is an “adopted” citizen by means of legislative action.

    2. Since their intent was to protect our nation from potential for foreign influence– you would think both parents were meant.

    3. Also considering the more traditional family values of that time. And the father had a predominant influence over the family unit, including carrying his surname. While Women were still 2nd class citizens, & largely not considered in legislative action. So the father, as to his citizenship at the time of child’s birth, was the most likely implied– if not both.
