Senate Confirms Dr. Ben Carson and Governor Rick Perry for Trump Cabinet…

The Senate voted Thursday to confirm Dr. Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and Governor Rick Perry as Energy Secretary, adding two more Cabinet leaders to President Donald Trump’s administration.

Secretary Carson passed with a senate approval vote of 58-41; and the vote for Secretary Perry was 62-37.

The Democrats continue using the confirmation process as a slowdown gimmick to stall the Senate from voting on any legislation. The larger Democrat objective is to obstruct any legislative accomplishments as they continue their highly coordinated actions to undermine and attack the Trump agenda.

The Democrats are joined by their UniParty republican colleagues toward that specific endeavor. The aggregate DC swamp is a UniParty of self-interest now openly defending itself -across party lines- from the existential threat that is the Trump ‘swamp draining’ agenda.  Additionally, the recent DC narrative against Attorney General Jeff Sessions is simply a variant approach toward the same objective.

The larger American electorate are witnessing why the past several decades have created a legislative bubble of activity that only benefits the special interests and lobbyists who write and construct the legislation.

Unfortunately for their enterprise, President Trump won election despite the professional K-Street lobbying class -funded by Wall Street and special interests- working against him.

Now, as President Trump seeks to enact policies that remove those influences, both sides of the UniParty apparatus rise up in opposition to the reform.  Some are able to do it more openly than others, but all intents and purposes remain the same.

…It’s really nothing more than a big club, and the politicians want desperately to keep the American electorate out of it…

      Donald Trump, the Candidate had an awesome social media presence that was on message, on offense, never on defense, and always won the news cycle. I don’t know what Scavino Jr. is doing now on twitter, but its not much and its not forward messaging.
      The social media machine needs to start rolliing again (ie-TrumpTrain) b/c as I sit here in the middle of the country it looks like NY-DC is in a FLAME WAR

      They took out Flynn. They’re trying to take out Gorska. They’re screaming & wanting to peel off Sessions. So that Trump is alone.

      I know that POTUS and his counsel told DOJ Sessions not to recuse himself but Sessions just did. Calls for Special Prosecutor have already begun by REPUBLICANS. My question is – who for? for what offense?

      POTUS can’t stop the republicans in congress but we can. The problem is #45 needs a social media General FAST to start fighting fire with fire so WE have some direction on where to go to have an impact, like in the campaign! This is OBAMA and Valerie Jarrett we’re talking about, who just moved into Michelle’s home to run the shadow government 2 miles from where Trump now lives. Funny how they lost 30,000+ emails but they saved all the documents as they crammed their suitcases full on their way out the door to leak and bring down Trump drip by drip w/the MSM which Scavino Jr. is doing nothing to counter.

        Scavino is Director of Social Media, that’s all.

        He has no strategic role. His is to show transparency in the administration with videos and stills, so that everyone knows what Trump is doing from day to day. I haven’t noticed any difference from then to now. He posts a lot every day.

        I’ve been wondering why Scavino hasn’t had higher visibility. If it’s because he’s lit up 100 times as bright through proxies and surrogates now, then hey – I get that, and not a problem. But if that’s not the case, then it is WAY past time to step it up. Scavino should be an accursed name in every vegetarian cafe from Berkeley to Boston.

        To me, the social media person is just like the people in the movie meme – EXPENDABLE, and they should act like it. AR’s and AK’s of tweets and memes flaming across the internet, until every moonbat is screaming in rage. If he or she is mortally wounded, replace with MILO and repeat.

          The ONLY case where E=mc^2 really matters might be for nukes (and oh by the way it’s fairly simple as physics goes), but honestly, you can probably get by in the job with less than a technician’s understanding of nuclear power. You don’t need to know them well enough to operate them, just understand in general terms what goes in (fuel rods of enriched uranium, or potentially U-238 for breeders, other things for thorium reactors) and what comes out (radioactive waste; a bit more complicated, and bred fuel as applicable) and perhaps what the hazards are.

        I think it would be quite instructive to see what horrible tentacles the Obama and Hillary people were sending into Cuba, Iran and elsewhere, during not just their interim period in late 2008-2009, but well prior to that in 2007-2008. I presume that it is precisely the Democrats’ wariness when collaborating with enemies of the US (like they did during Vietnam), that made them think the dumb Republicans could be hammered on less carefully guarded dealings with Russia during the interregnum.

        Always remember – the Dems accuse others of crimes they do better.

And every moment of everyday is just more and more of the same obstruction and sabotage.

    The message should be clear that this is a civil war,, fought through the corridors of government and the murky dark channels that crisis cross the Washington swamp. Trump has to stop his team from taking body blow after body blow. The cumulative effect is demoralizing and only encourages the opposition. Trump is the one with the power. He can’t leave even the perception of compromise or acceptance of the false set of premises his enemies throw out there. Speeches are great, but action speaks volumes. Time to challenge each and every accusation fully. With documents and proof, not just verbal denials. And document each and every instance of an Obama associate doing equal or worse things. The narrative with it’s false premises needs to be utterly incinerated.

        Read the article – it doesn’t matter if “Bloomberg sucks” — what matters is the Reality.
        The Reality is that ObamaCare doubled the poverty level for Medicaid, the vast majority of the ObamaCare sign-ups were Medicaid and the States got that PAID for by the FEDS. 31 States took that DEAL & it’s worth big bucks to them, Big Bucks they will lose if a new Insurance Plan doesn’t pay them the Big Bucks to cover their own Medicaid programs.

        It’s all about the MONEY ….. none of it has to do with what is good for the Country, just what is good for their State. A major part of ObamaCare was putting more people at the poverty level so they could force States to comply …… that appears to be working for these GOP Governors that don’t want to lose that money.

        Block Grants forcing States to figure out the best plan for them, that THEY pay for is the only option.

      As Bloomberg reports: “The document is being treated a bit like a top-secret surveillance intercept. It is expected to be available to members and staffers on the House Energy and Commerce panel starting Thursday, but only in a dedicated reading room, one Republican lawmaker and a committee aide said. Nobody will be given copies to take with them.”

      Mickey-Wasp “Senator Rand Paul stated that the Republican US House leadership is hiding away the Obamacare replacement bill and will not let him or others read it ….”

      Is that not what the Democrats did…????

      It should have been Low Energy Jeb.

      (No it shouldn’t have been, but the irony would have been great.)

      (Incidentally, Energy is the department Perry forgot he wanted to totally eliminate when he had his famous Senior Moment during that one debate. That IS a really cool irony. And I hope he still wants to eliminate it.)

          A few activities that look useful, but not the Government’s frigging job.

          Doesn’t mention nuclear warheads, which really ought to be the government’s job.

          Yeah, a big swampland, for which the drain plug needs to be found, and yanked out.

    I find myself conflicted regarding AG Sessions recusal today. On the one hand, he recused himself from an investigation that may never come to pass since I believe this is just a politically driven witch hunt with no real evidence of criminal wrongdoing. I’m hopeful the adults in the DOJ will do the right thing. (Although I’m worried now about the Obama appointed acting AG who may now lead the possible investigation).

    On the other hand, I am working towards hot anger towards the blood-thirsty political hacks of the UniParty …Dems, spineless RINOs, and CoC-backed Republicans….who are hell-bent on destroying the Trump administration at all cost. Their attacks won’t end with AG Sessions’ recusal. Trying to maintain a status of cold anger is getting more difficult daily.

    OMG People. Can we PLEASE quit talking about Sessions on this thread?

    It’s completely Off Topic!

    This threads about the Perry and Carson Confirmation!

    There’s a shoe thread to yammer about Sessions.

    Please? Pretty Please?

    “The larger American electorate are witnessing why the past several decades have created a legislative bubble of activity that only benefits the special interests and lobbyists who write and construct the legislation.”

    You know, I really hope the larger American electorate are starting to realize this. This isn’t even close to the kind of stalling we saw with Obama, and he and his media pals crowed on and on about how the Republicans are obstructionist, and the Republicans just took it. Now we have (what is supposed to be) the same party controlling everything and *still* Congress stalls and stalls. I hope the larger American electorate puts two and two together, realizes that something is wrong if Congress is dysfunctional no matter who is in control, and starts to wake up to the truth of the UniParty swamp.

    We need as many people as possible to wake up so we can drain the Congressional swamp in 2018.

    Things I like about Carsom
    1. He has his own ideas and speaks his mind
    2. He knows what it is like to live in public housing, which means he understands the cold terror of possibly not having a roof over your head, as well as the cold terror of living in a place where the guys next door might rob your place as soon as you go to the store – and eventually you will have to go to the store
    3. He doesn’t appreciate stupid
    4. He is not a chicken and crossed the line to work with Trump
