Trump’s First 100 Days

First things first.

It was cold, windy, the sky was threatening all day yesterday.  Fishing is largely a matter of timing. Tuesday, the crappie bite was hot. Thursday, nobody on the lake caught anything. We found some small fish, my friend got one nice crappie and I got a bluegill about 10″, which is big for this species. It was a female and she was pre-spawn, so she was full of eggs. My friend took one picture of me with it and I released her. We call it CPR: catch, photo and release. This lake gets a lot of pressure and when too many mature fish are taken, the population declines. People like me want to keep the sport healthy for our grandchildren. We are conservationists, not terrorists.

Now for the boring crap.

Much has been made of the first quarter GDP being .07%. The media, of course is blaming it all on Trump. This, of course, is bogus. For 8 agonizing years, the GDP under the Magic Negro didn’t top 3%, the worst record of economic growth in our history, including The Great Depression.

President Trump on First 100 Days: “I Don’t Think Anyone Has Done What We’ve Been Able to Do”

‘We’re moving awfully well. We’ve got a lot of things done. We are, I don’t think there’s ever been anything like this. It’s a false standard, 100 days, but I have to tell you, but I don’t think anyone has done what we’ve been able to do.”

Trump’s loyal voters aren’t buying ‘shameful’ media spin: Report

“Employing a blitzkrieg-style deluge of misleading headlines, both online and in print, coupled with a heavy diet of 89 percent negative broadcast network news coverage of Trump, the groupthink of the liberal media bubble has tried mightily to portray President Trump’s first 100 days in office as the worst political disaster of the last half century,” Mr. O’Connell tells The Washington Times.

“How else are we to explain the fact that President Trump has the lowest approval rating since 1945, yet his supporters express little-to-no buyer’s remorse and that if the 2016 presidential election were held today, Trump would win the popular vote over Hillary Clinton, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll?” he continued.

President Trump Is ‘Absolutely’ Considering Breaking Up the Ninth Circuit Court

The Ninth Circuit has jurisdiction over nine west coast states and two U.S. territories. Eighteen of the court’s 25 judges were appointed by Democratic presidents.

“You see judge shopping, or what’s gone on with these people, they immediately run to the Ninth Circuit,” Trump added. “It’s got close to an 80 percent reversal period, and what’s going on in the 9th Circuit is a shame.”

    Anti-Trump bar earmarks its profits for progressive causes

    A new bar, Coup, opened this month with protest-themed decor, a distinctly anti-President Donald Trump vibe and a promise by its owners to donate their profits to organizations including the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

    Patrons are offered a chance to earmark where their money goes. When they buy a drink, they get a token to drop into one of a half-dozen jars, each labeled with the name of a nonprofit group. The list of recipients will rotate. Jars on tap this week included the Natural Resources Defense Council and Human Rights Watch. Tokens also are on sale for $5.

      Our health food coop started this wooden coin thing for people who bring their own bags. But we get to drop them into one of three charities of our choice. Ours go to support hiking trail development and maintenance. Dearest is on the local committee so it was a no brainer.

    New Biography: Young Obama ‘Considered Gayness’

    In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn.

    “Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry Obama,” Garrow wrote in the book. “Almost a quarter century later, asked about his understanding of gay issues, Obama enthusiastically said, ‘my favorite professor my first year in college was one of the first openly gay people that I knew…He was a terrific guy” with whom Obama developed a ‘friendship beyond the classroom.’”

    Trump’s budget proposal cuts out the Global Women’s Issues office that Obama created in 2009, along with an ambassador-at-large position initially filled by one of Hillary’s feminist, pro-abortion bffs. This faux ambassador had discretion over spending of more than $8 million with little transparency or congressional oversight.

    Trump has named Charmaine Yoest, the former president of Americans United for Life, to replace a staunch abortion advocate as Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. Because the position does not require Senate approval, Yoest can begin immediately helping to shape communications efforts at HHS, an agency that often oversees and implements policies related to abortion.
