President Trump Press Remarks Departing White House – Senate Tax Vote, Michael Flynn…

Earlier this morning, while departing the White House for a fundraiser in New York, President Trump delivered remarks on last night’s historic senate tax vote.  Additionally, the President answered a question about Michael Flynn’s plea deal:

.

WHITE HOUSE STATEMENT: President Donald J. Trump applauds the Senate for passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The Senators who voted for these historic tax cuts did a great service to their constituents as they supported putting America first, growing the economy, and rebuilding our great country.

The policies in this bill will cut taxes for hardworking families and put our economy on a path of sustainable economic prosperity and job creation. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reclaim Americas great destiny. The Administration looks forward to working with Congress to fulfill the promise we made to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people by the end of the year. (link)

      Sadly my guess is 90% of everyone in that Press-Line can’t stand POTUS, it has got to Gaul them that he is succeeding and will go on a roll from here. It is going to be a rough 7 years for them going forward as his successes and the nations, will challenge their epistemology as the things he does make things better and it doesn’t compute with their ideology.

        I think that President Trump likes it this way. He thrives on the confrontation with these “journalist” and he enjoys calling them out on their falsehoods and sticking it to them. As we all know, he is in a completely different league from these brainless, SJW “reporters.”

          There might be one or two. I work among all rabid Leftwingers. So I quietly vote, donate and support Trump and fellow MAGA-rific people without any of them knowing. So yeah, when you work among Leftwingers you might have to be quiet for self preservation. But I pray that I see the day when the Left will no longer have this stranglehold on media, education and entertainment anymore.
          –The only thing that makes it seem unlikely that there are some quiet sane people is that they write their obnoxious opinions and inject them into everything they do. So it’s not hard knowing that you’re hiring a fully rabid hyena Lefty for your newsroom by just reading some of the past venom that they’ve spewed.

          Any person who won’t stand for something will fall for anything. We all stand one way or the other and as always “silence on anything is consent.” Those who choose to continue with the anti president Trump agenda make a choice and that choice is not admirable in any way. They could at least be looking at the possibility of doing something else and then applying secretly if necessary for a different position or job. If they aren’t doing that then I don’t pity them. It is decision time all around for Americans in and out of the press and the outcome will be either a reinvigorated America or the downfall of America. I personally prefer the invigorating idea. Hopefully some of these who fear losing their jobs will man up and deal with what is right no matter what the consequences.

We went through two years without work which was excruciating for me because I believe I am responsible for the welfare of my family but God provided miraculously the entire time and finally opened a door of ministry for me at the end of that time. So I guess the answer for the Fox reporters would be the same as mine – Go to Jesus.

      Even now, we know that Hillary won the popular because she won the popular vote in California.
      In the other 49 states, PDJT won the total popular vote by 1.4 million.

      https://www.investors.com/politics/commentary/its-official-clintons-popular-vote-win-came-entirely-from-california/

      … while Clinton’s overall margin looks large and impressive, it is due to Clinton’s huge margin of victory in one state — California — where she got a whopping 4.3 million more votes than Trump.

      California is the only state, in fact, where Clinton’s margin of victory was bigger than President Obama’s in 2012 — 61.5% vs. Obama’s 60%.

      But California is the exception that proves the true genius of the Electoral College — which was designed to prevent regional candidates from dominating national elections.

      In recent years, California has been turning into what amounts to a one-party state. Between 2008 and 2016, the number of Californian’s who registered as Democrats climbed by 1.1 million, while the number of registered Republicans dropped by almost 400,000.

      If you take California out of the popular vote equation, then Trump wins the rest of the country by 1.4 million votes. And if California voted like every other Democratic state — where Clinton averaged 53.5% wins — Clinton and Trump end up in a virtual popular vote tie. (This was not the case in 2012. Obama beat Romney by 2 million votes that year, not counting California.)

        If you take the illegitimate, illegal, bussed-in, dead, and double (or more) votes, President Trump easily won California as well. Kalifornistan is said to harbor at least 5-10 million illegals, possibly more. Add to that the “motor voter” and non-existent voter-id laws, and there’s probably 5-6 million votes right there.

        The DEMONcRATs, by Gerrymandering and other skulduggery, have made CA into an electoral minefield. Here’s hoping the election fraud commission can clean it up. I suspect that if the illegals are rounded up and returned from whence they came, lopsided elections will become a thing of the past.

        I would like to see have many citizens vs non-citizens are registered to vote and how many voted only one time and who counted the absentee votes, etc., etc., etc. Even though too many Californians are nutty-leftists — most I work with, and family — I don’t think the total was accurate. Fraud, fraud, and more fraud.

        Now that the rest of the U.S. won’t be paying for CA’s socialism and fraud (tax cut regs), We might slowly see the lawlessness come under control. Then, wait until we build the WALL.

Rinos would rather skip the lifeboat and swim off on their own if they think it will make them look good. Too bad half of them can’t swim. I believe the Rinos are incapable of governing as a united party as long as Ryan and The Turtle are in leadership roles. Its too bad because they both could share in the glory.

    Flynn NEVER should have agreed to that setup interview with the FBI, which took place after Trump was president. Would Obama’s national security thug Clapper have given a similar interview? No Way. Sure, Comey would have immediately have leaked it to the press, but Trump could have covered him by stating (generally) that his administration would discuss appropriate topics in the normal course with the Senate Intell. Committee. Flynn, with his experience, should have known better and should have known that Obama’s FBI was not his friend. Read Andrew McCarthy’s Saturday column, which is very good.

The defeat of the individual mandate is huge, but not as huge as reducing the corporate tax rate and creating a path to bring trapped foreign profits back to our country. These will result in huge growth over the next 30 years. Well done Congress. Never thought you had it in you.

    “…As I argue in this week’s Spectator, he represents the same revolt of the masses against the liberal elite we saw with Brexit. His mission is vital:

    That mission, domestically, is to Make America Great Again. But his ambitions, I believe, are even greater than that. As he outlined in his brilliant Warsaw speech, he sees himself as the defender of not just the free world, but of western civilisation itself.

    ‘We write symphonies. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers. We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honour God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression. We empower women as pillars of our society and of our success. We put faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, at the centre of our lives. And we debate everything. We challenge everything.’

    President Trump’s Warsaw Speech – the most important speech any president has made since Ronald Reagan’s 1987 “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall” – established him as Western Civilization’s White Knight. No other leader anywhere in the Western world – certainly not Angela Merkel or the insipid Theresa May – speaks up for our values (the wisdom of the Ancients, infused with Judaeo-Christian morality, filtered through the skepticism and scientific experiment of the Enlightenment, made prosperous by global trade and the Industrial Revolution) in such a forthright and unapologetic way…”

            I understand what you are saying and agree wholeheartedly about the crooks in my state. I despise them. But average incomes here in CA are more than the fly over states. A lot of people here are in that 100k – 250k range that PT is taxing. We always seemed to get screwed…the upper middle class never gets a break. And for PT to say this is the biggest tax cut in history and everyone is getting a tax cut is a lie. Again, it’s a tax redistribution, not a cut.

          Oh, he!!. I would rather pay higher taxes and have angry people finally going after our profligate and illegal state government than have that $10,000 deduction (per person?) for state taxes that California continues to get to use for its nefarious purposes at odds with its citizens.
