    Thanks, Sundance!

    President Trump always fills me with confidence! He answered a variety of questions without any hesitation, even the one on Harvey Weinstein. (I KNEW that was coming!)

    Much appreciate you keeping an eye on things on a Saturday night!

    On Obamacare, he was talking about a possible 1-year deal with the Dems and then eventual block grants back to the states in which he said that is what the GOP wants. If that is what the GOP wants, then they need to get it done!

      I’ve been trying to get a feeling for the NK comments lately. Never thought preemptive strike because never in PDJT’s comments/plan. Are the talks behind the scenes more often and serious than we hear ? Could solution come sooner than anticipated ? Would it be a final agreement that would both resolve closing Korean War and nuke ?
      Hope , wait and see, is as epic as lots of other PDJT’s doings.

    Kelly loves what he is doing. He is doing a great job. He will be with me for the Next 7 Years.
    Tillerson and I get along fine. I just wish he would be tougher at times.

    Sometimes Tillerson and Kelly and I have a difference of opinion. That does not mean we do not like and respect each other and get along well.

    To the sheep liberals any difference of opinion is not allowed and is bad. For rational people differences are welcomed in the discussion to arrive at the best answer.

    So the press all think any time someone in PDJT administration has a difference of opinion on something, that means PDJT hates them and they will be gone.

    Bottom Line:
    So to the press any normal difference of opinion = Bad they are fighting , they will be gone.

    Liberals are afraid of logical rational discussions. They run from them or just reply with name calling. They cannot fathom people discussing differences openly as normal behavior and normal business.

              1) The right of writs of habeas corpus are granted in Article I, Section 9, clause 2 of the Constitution, which states, “The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.”

              2) Lincoln was scrupulous in following the Constitution with respect to slavery. That is why he was hated by Democrats (and scorned by Abolitionists as well, who argued that God’s law trumped the Constitution).

              3) The ultimate and exclusive goal of the Democrats was the defense of slavery, not only as a Constitutional right, but as a positive good, similar to how Democrats today defend abortion as a positive good.

              4) I agree with Lincoln that America was a unique and probably unrepeatable Gift to mankind, the sole historical phenomenon of a nation committed to freedom and equality before the law. That is what he was protecting, and that is what the Democrats hated with the hatred one can expect from defenders of slavery.

                That argument is kind of like what the lefties always talk about, and many EOs do too… That is times of “national emergency”, the Bill of Rights can be suspended. Pray tell, exactly when is it that we need to have the safeguarding of our rights from God protected even more? Is it not in a time of national emergency? The principle of habeas corpus is in the Bible, and most of the concept of our rights came from that book.

              “Lindenlee” HATES Abraham Lincoln and calls him a “tyrant”. John Wilkes Booth shared the same feelings and said the same thing. You back up “Lindelee’s” opinions as facts, other than the comment about hating blacks. So you agree that Lincoln “… destroyed a country and a whole region of people …”? You are aware that someone with “Lindelee’s” sentiments murdered Lincoln before Reconstruction started after the war? I don’t worship at any “altar of union above sovereignty of states” but Sanctuary States are just Confederate States Lite.

                I suggest your study the Morrill Tariff, one of many oppressive tariffs imposed by the North. Study the efforts of the mercantilist North to use the Southern tariffs ro finance the North. The taeiffs made southern everyday goods very expensive, and the North was furious because merchant ships started docking in Southern ports and overlanding their goods to save money.

                The South had a perfect right to secede, under the understanding of the federalist nature of the Union at the time. The South was also mainly of an Anti-federalist stripe, while the industrial North was Federalist. I suggest you read the writings of Richard Henry Lee in the Federalist Papers to understand the essential differences in outlook, which ran very deep and were quite oppositional to each other.

                The War for Southern Independence had complicated and multi-faceted causes, of which slavery was but ONE. Wars and conflicts are rarely simple and cannot be reduced to platitudes. Read history with an open mind and learn.

                As far as Reconstruction.. . The wounds from this ran so deep that Gen. Marshall, when creating the Marshall Plan after WWII, said that he lerned from the terrible tragedies of it what NOT to do in the Plan.

          Good to know there’s another Confederate on here… our country is still suffering from Reconstruction! (And what everyone always ignores is that the CSA *did* secede, and therefore to bring the South back into the Union was, in fact, conquest of another country – the only time, to my knowledge, that the United States conquered and incorporated another country.

          Why was the Underground Railroad all the way to Canada if the blacks were welcome in the Union?
          When did the war start? When was the Emancipation Proclamation?

            Having re-watched the Ken Burns epic Civil War series – the last time about 6 mos ago – I was left with a completely different view of the ‘causus belli’ and an understanding of tyranny. The razing of Atlanta was stunning, the complete devastation of much of the Southern states and its citizens was overkill. We’re still dealing with the consequences of no insight nor planning by the govt for what to do with several million freed blacks – people who were terribly lacking in so many ways, and easily the subject of manipulation and the evils of men.

  20. SPECULATION ON TRUMP TEAM ROLES:

    • President Trump has given Sec of State T-Rex the job of cutting “good-guy” DIPLOMATIC Deals.

    • President Trump has given Sec of Commerce Wilburine the job of cutting “America-First” Bilateral TRADE Deals … and inflicting MAJOR sanctions pain for obstruction and delays.

    • President Trump has given Sec of Defense Mad Dog Mattis then job of creating capabilities to ANNIHILATE any enemy and demonstrating that we can and will do it at an unexpected time and place of our choosing.

    • President Trump has given himself the job of demonstrating how America will EITHER be nations’ BEST FRIEND or WORST ENEMY and wielding ALL of our ULTIMATE HAMMERS with unmatched decisiveness and speedy to make it happen.d

    SPECULATION ON TRUMP TEAM DYNAMICS:

    • Tillerson probably wishes he could be the good-guy in trade deals.

    • Mattis probably wishes he could let himself off the hook if and when military action becomes inevitable.

    • Ross is so good at his job, he wishes President Trump could cut him loose sooner.

    • PDJT probably appreciates the opportunity for nations to fear or celebrate his capacity to massively deploy America’s resources in successfully and concurrently meeting more domestic and international crises than any international leader in history – in just his first 8 months.

    It looks like it is happening next week on Obamacare.

It has to get done, because down the road, if we get a Dem President (God forbid), he/she will resurrect Obamacare just as fast as you can say go if it has not been officially repealed.

      Allowing cross border insurance groups will lower premiums due to more intense competition from larger carriers and associated economies of scale. As private premium rates fall Ocare folks will flee to cheaper private policies, which will cause even higher Ocare premiums. The EO accelerates Ocare downward spiral while giving relief to private policy holders. He knows Dems won’t bite at new Ocare deal. To do so would be to admit that Ocare isn’t working and is a failure. PDJT is just demonstrating his good faith attempts to deal and to make clear the necessity to make the executive order when every other avenue (Dem and Rep) has failed.

        He is re-ordering the 3 steps that were told to us before. The elimination ofmthe mandates and all he wanted to do initially for the budget matters were to come first, to meet the bufgetbdeadline. Then were the administrative changes he and Price could make through the executive branch. Then, then the legislative changes.

        He is doing step 2 now, because step 1 was not done. This step WILL, IMHO change the budget talks in December and onward. The effects will be almost immediate. He is giving the insurance companies time to change, offer new policies, and letting them know that because they will havs larger markets, they will not have bailouts. Trading. Brilliant.

        Next is tort reform. Justice department. Lawyers will squeal, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Dims. Trump will find a way to talk about “protecting the policy holders from the greedy lawyers who drive everyone’s rates up” while protecting those who have been injuried. Doctors will rejoice and stay in practice.

        He will find a way to eviscerate Ocare piece by piece, while liit implodes on itself. The screams from the impotent Left will be music to my ears.
