Trump’s determination to tap his executive authority next year in all its many forms will demand sharp legal advice and patience. Some regulatory reversals he has in mind, for instance, are predicted to take two or more years to accomplish. Other Obama policies will be easier to erase.
Runner-Up Of The Year: Congrats To Hillary For Coming In Second For The Second Time
“She’s the woman who was almost President. She is what might have been and what will yet be.”
The former presidential candidate held off hackers, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, scientists behind the bio-engineering CRISPR breakthrough and Beyonce to lock down the awfully impressive number two spot.
Trump Selects Oklahoma AG Fighting EPA Regulations to Lead EPA
THIS PICK HAS ENVIRO-WEENIES GOING BALLISTIC
The Oklahoma attorney general, who the New York Times described as a “hero to conservative activists,” is one of the Republican attorneys general who formed an alliance with the country’s top energy producers to put a stop to Obama’s regulatory agenda.
Pruitt, along with Greg Abbott of Texas, planned a legal effort starting in 2014 to counter the Obama administration’s string of regulations, including on climate change. Their efforts resulted in a 28-state lawsuit against Obama’s climate change rules, which is expected to move to the Supreme Court.

Trump Day One To-Do List: Repeal $1.7 Billion Of Dodd-Frank Rules
THE TWO JERKOFFS ON BARRY’S LEFT (THE ONES HOLDING IN THEIR COLOSTOMY BAGS) ARE THE MAIN CULPRITS IN THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE
The Dodd-Frank financial “reform,” passed by Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in 2010, is arguably the most misguided and economically harmful piece of legislation ever imposed on the country (the second, arguably, is ObamaCare).
As we’ve noted in this space before, one of the main reasons the economy has been stuck in neutral for the past six years has been the millstone of a 2,300-page law that has spawned multitudes more pages of costly and economically foolish regulations. The law has calcified the credit markets, forced community banks out of business, and unleashed an unaccountable, out-of-control agency that goes by the innocent-sounding name of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Tina Fey Warns: Prepare for Nazi America Under a Donald Trump Presidency
THIS BROAD HAS MADE MILLIONS IMPERSONATING A WOMAN SHE DESPISES.
But in a world where the president makes fun of handicapped people and fat people, how do we proceed with dignity? I want to tell people, “If you do two things this year, watch Idiocracy by Mike Judge and read [Nazi filmmaker] Leni Riefenstahl’s 800-page autobiography [Leni Riefenstahl: A Memoir] and then call it a year.”
Democrats urge Obama to pardon 750,000 young undocumented immigrants
WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH MEXICAN DRUG DEALERS, MURDERERS, AND RAPISTS
“You have pardoned hundreds and hundreds of people convicted for drug offenses,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said at a Wednesday press conference in Washington. “We want you to use that same pardon power for hundreds of thousands of young people who came forward because you asked them to come forward. You asked them to come forward.”

Ohio approves bill to ban all abortions after the heartbeat of the fetus is first detected
The so-called ‘heartbeat’ abortion bill has been approved by Ohio’s state House. It would see almost all abortions banned after the first heartbeat is detected. Bill only makes exception if the mother’s life is in danger and not in rape cases. Legislation is now being passed to state governor John Kasich for his approval.
AS IT SHOULD BE.
[CtH: I have long said that the standards for determining death should be the same ones for determining life. Currently, the standard for determining life is whether or not the baby’s nearest kin want him or her to live, while the standard for determining death are cessation of heart beat and brain activity, both of which are detectable in fetuses before many women suspect they’re even pregnant. Of course, if the euthanasia creeps get their way, we’ll make death like abortion where the people who are most likely to resent the expense and bother of caring for the helpless individual gets to decide whether or not to off him or her.]
Whoa: Liberals Mull Scheme to Temporarily Seize Control of Senate, Confirm Obama’s SCOTUS Nominee
On January 3, 2017, Democrats will hold the majority in the Senate for a few minutes, until the newly-elected Senators are sworn in. Biden could convene the Senate in those few minutes and call for a vote. The majority could then suspend the rules and vote in Merrick Garland. The key here is that VP Biden would have to be willing to convene the Senate and recognize Senator Dick Durbin instead of Mitch McConnell. Durbin moves to re-nominate Garland, and Senate Democrats then vote to confirm him. They will have a quorum for those few minutes. It’s bold. Garland would be confirmed by 34 Democrats and no Republicans.
Valerie Jarrett: Trump Victory Was ‘Soul-Crushing,’ ‘Punch to the Stomach
Jarrett said, “We were surprised by the outcome of the election. It kind of was like a — I’m not sure what the right analogy would be, but like a punch in the stomach, let’s say. Soul-crushing might be another description. But that’s the democracy that we have. The people get to decide and the elections matter and we have to get about the business of doing our jobs.”
Barack “MeToo!” Obama
Donald Trump began a Thank You Tour this past week to celebrate his victory with those who supported him in the election. Naturally, “MeToo!” Obama decides he needs to do a tour as well.
Fox News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry told Fox & Friends this morning that behind the scenes, Obama’s advisors are planning a Farewell Tour in mid-January before he leaves office.
Not for the same reasons, of course. Trump is doing it to thank us; Barack “MeToo!” Obama is doing it so people can thank him. Amazing, isn’t it?
Obama flies to Hawaii in less than two weeks and will stay there until after the New Year. Then, he’ll hop aboard Air Force One, return to Washington just in time to launch his Farewell Tour.
Said Ed Henry: “I’m told there’s at least three cities that President Obama will be giving major speeches in arenas. One of them is Chicago, his sort of adopted hometown. They’re looking at the United Center there, where the Chicago Bulls play.”
He can’t wait three weeks and do a little tour on his own dime? What’s wrong with holding a “I’m a Private Citizen Now” tour? I guarantee, tens of thousands of Americans who didn’t vote for Obama would turn up to celebrate that.
No. Obama wants to do this because he is continuously being upstaged by the man who will replace him. And nobody puts Barry in the corner!
