Trump’s 28-point “Contract with the American Voter”

“This is my pledge to you and if we follow these steps we will once more have a government of, by and for the people and importantly we will make America great again. Believe me.”

  1.  Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress.
  2.  Institute a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health).
  3.  Require for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.
  4.  Institute a five year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.
  5.  Create a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.
  6.  Institute a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
  7.  Announce intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205.
  8.  Announce withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
  9.  Direct Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.
  10.  Direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately.
  11.  Lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
  12.  Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.
  13.  Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.
  14.  Cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama. 
  15.  Begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.
  16.  Cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.
  17.  Begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back.
  18.  Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
  19.  Work with Congress on a Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act.  An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.
  20.  Work with Congress on a End The Offshoring Act.  Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.
  21.  Work with Congress on an American Energy & Infrastructure Act.  Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.
  22.  Work with Congress on a School Choice And Education Opportunity Act.  Redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.
  23.  Work with Congress on a Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act.  Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.
  24.  Work with Congress on a Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act.  Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.
  25.  Work with Congress on an End Illegal Immigration Act.  Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.
  26.  Work with Congress on a Restoring Community Safety Act.  Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.
  27.  Work with Congress on a Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values.
  28. Work with Congress on a Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.

Saturday Leftovers

Already said what I wanted to say in the last thread. This is just to keep anybody around informed and educated. No charge.

Suicide prevention hotlines see shocking spike in calls after Trump’s win: ‘We’ve never seen this before’
A record number of anguished calls flooded suicide prevention hotlines just before and after Donald Trump secured his shocking presidential victory.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline received 660 calls between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. Wednesday — 2½ times the average.
“It clearly is and was an indication that there’s a lot of anxiety and fear around the election,” director John Draper told the Daily News.

Obama’s Legacy: The Total Destruction Of The Democratic Party
As the Democratic Party enters a long, lonely road out of power, it should be a lesson and a warning to Republicans. Never build a party apparatus and voter coalition so firmly behind a single, term-limited president. It’s dubious as to whether a successor can keep that winning coalition in place. For Clinton, she failed. In the end, Trump was expected to torpedo GOP gains; that didn’t happen. And Barack Obama will have to watch hopelessly as congressional Republicans–now working with a Trump White House–will undo most of his signature domestic achievements.
Thank God.

DNC Prepares To Elevate Muslim Congressman Ellison To Chief
If you thought the Democrats would respond to Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the 2016 presidential election by attempting to woo back some of the white blue-collar voters they lost over the last eight years, you’re sadly mistaken: they’ll be doubling down on the Obama coalition.
The proof: on Friday, support built dramatically among Democratic insiders like incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) as head of the Democratic National Committee.

Mike Pence Emerging as a Commanding Figure in Trump Administration
Given the dearth of hands-on Washington experience in the inner circle of President-elect Donald J. Trump, Mr. Pence, a former Republican congressman, is emerging as a commanding figure in the administration taking shape as well as the chief conduit between Capitol Hill and the White House.
“My guess is he will be one of the most involved, day-to-day, managerial vice presidents in the history of the republic,” said Representative Jeb Hensarling, a senior Republican from Texas and a close ally from Mr. Pence’s days on Capitol Hill.

Black Trump Supporter’s ‘Apology’ To Liberals Is Laugh-Out-Loud Hilarious
Davis opened by addressing his video to “all of the Trump haters, all of the Hillary Clinton supporters and all of the people who said my Trump was going to lose.”
That’s when things started to get good

UN chief confident Trump will drop rhetoric, show leadership
United Nations (United States) (AFP) – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon voiced confidence on Friday that Donald Trump will shed the strident rhetoric that propelled him to the White House and engage with the world to confront global crises like climate change.

MSNBC Realise They are Propagandists

‘She Couldn’t Stop Crying’: Hillary Clinton Was ‘Inconsolable’ After Losing The Election To Donald Trump
Her life-long dream of total and complete power was shattered for the second and final time. I can’t find one molecule of sympathy for her. Off to the dustbin.

CNN: Tea Party Patriots Warn Against Priebus for Chief of Staff
“No Washington insider, regardless of who it is, should serve as President Trump’s chief of staff,” Martin said. “Appointing Reince Priebus (or any other DC establishment insider) would make it more difficult, not less, for President Trump to achieve the change the people voted for. It’s time to drain the swamp — not promote insiders beholden to the Washington establishment who helped create it.”

Trump Won Because ‘Racism’? NO, YOU IDIOT!! | Louder With Crowder

Bill Maher asks President-elect Trump to appear on his show
“I want to take this opportunity right now to invite him on this show. … He won. He ran a vicious, vulgar campaign and I gave it back exactly in measure,” the political comedian said. “I was also vicious and vulgar but he won and he did it his way. Nobody gets to sing that song more than Donald Trump.”

Trey Gowdy Being Considered for Trump’s Attorney General! This Would Be AWESOME!


Michelle Obama makes third Vogue cover appearance
The cover shows the first lady reclining on the grass in the South Lawn garden, her hair loose and her elbows propped up on a flower bed.
Inside the magazine, Obama describes a wistfulness at leaving White House life behind.

Obama’s ‘legacy’ drive lost Florida for Clinton
“Pride goeth before destruction,” Proverbs 16:18 reminds us, and so it was in this election.
The evidence is mounting that President Obama’s overzealous defense of his “opening Cuba” gambit cost Hillary Clinton the state of Florida. That misstep could end up wiping out most of the president’s carefully curated “legacy” achievements.
Then in late October, President Obama went for broke and decided to stick a bigger needle in his opponents’ eye.
He lifted limits on the import of cigars and rum, and then ordered our ambassador to the United Nations to abstain from a vote condemning the US economic embargo on Cuba

SF bracing in case Trump cuts federal funds over sanctuary status
Mayor Ed Lee and San Francisco politicians are bracing for what President-elect Donald Trump lists as one of his main priorities: blocking “all federal funding” for sanctuary cities.
Of that money, $478 million comes directly from the federal government. The balance comes from the federal government via the state of California. The city’s current budget is $9.6 billion.
City officials are making contingency plans in case that money disappears.

Who’s Laughing Now? — This Compilation Of The Media S**t Talking Trump Is The Cherry On Top
TV’s finest have spent the past two and a half days walking back months of Trump ridicule, but like elephants, the Internet video wizards don’t forget.
Let’s review a few of their greatest hits.

108,600 Votes Swing 46 Electoral College Votes to Donald Trump
Grannyism: If a bullfrog had wings he wouldn’t bump his ass
Trump won Pennsylvania, with its 20 electoral college votes, by 68,236 votes, Wisconsin, with its 10 electoral college votes, by 27,257 votes, and Michigan, with its 16 electoral college votes, by 13,107 votes.
Had those 108,600 votes gone to Hillary Clinton, she would have won the presidency with a a 278 to 260 electoral college victory over Trump.

A Study in Contrasts

Sitting here pondering events of the past week some things struck me about the difference in the paths the present and future presidents have taken to fulfill their destinies.Their personal histories,it seems,give an insight into their leadership capabilities as ostensibly the most powerful man in the world.
Barack Obama was educated at the finest private school in Hawaii,thanks to his grandmother who he later referred to as ‘a typical white woman.’He realized at a young age that being part white got him no special treatment.Claiming to be first foreign-born,then black he rode the affirmative action bus all the way to Harvard.He was made head of the Law Review strictly because of his race.He never wrote even a single article that was published.He’s always been notoriously lazy and has had everything,including the presidency handed to him without much effort on his own part.
He had all his records sealed by court order before he started hi political career.Virtually nothing was known about him at the time and the media wasn’t about to tell anybody what he really was.As a student of Saul Alinsky he ruled for 8 miserable years,almost by fiat.It took almost the full first two years to shove Obamacare down the nations’ throat,even with majorities in both chambers.His arrogance would not allow him to accept someone else could be smarter than he was.Not his generals,not his finance experts,not his foreign policy people.He did what he wanted to,when he wanted,then he squeezed in some 300 rounds of golf and monthly vacation trips for he and his brood,all without a word of dissent from his willing accomplices in the press.
Now comes president-elect Donald Trump.Son of a millionaire,he studied business and went on to create an empire of his own.His life has always been an open book and he has no secrets.Unlike nearly every politician on the Hill who got a degree in political science before they went about getting elected to public office so they could get fabulously wealthy without ever actually accomplishing anything.We know everything about Trump,since he was thoroughly vetted before he ever ran for office.He tapped into the frustration and the rage of 60 million people who were tired of being preached to,ridiculed and burdened with onerous regulations that made life almost unlivable.
Unlike Obama,Trump has run businesses before,met payrolls and knows how to get the best bang for the buck.I’m confident he will surround himself with people who are capable of doing what must be done and getting results.Delegating responsibility is a basic tenet of running a successful company.One man had everything handed to him,had the full support of the entire radical left and never did anything to make the lives of ordinary(straight,white,Christians)any better.He made no secret of the contempt he held them in.
There is no way to gauge what kind of president Trump will be but he has the tools and the support to make this country great again.We’ll see soon enough what life will be like.At this point avoiding having to listen to the shrill cackling of pompous wanna-be queen is enough for me.
