Keeping Promises

On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order giving his Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, about a year to prepare a report on areas within the federal Department of Education that infringe on state and local education decisions and need to be eliminated.

“We know that local communities do it best and know it best,” Trump said.  “The time has come to empower teachers and parents to make the decisions that help their students achieve success.”

Still Keeping Promises

Vets debt toon

Today, President Trump created a new office in the Department of Veterans Affairs tasked with identifying and weeding out poorly performing employees.

It will also be tasked with protecting whistle blowers from retaliation and conducting an internal review of the VA to make eliminate unnecessary duplication of services.

The VA has been criticized for years for failing to quickly fire problematic employees, and Trump repeatedly vowed on the campaign trail that he would increase accountability at the VA.

I’m enthused.  I hope it actually works.

Selling human body parts is a felony

After this Planned Parenthood honcho was caught negotiating prices of baby parts in a CMP undercover video, she was called before the U.S. House Energy & Commerce Committee.

In December 2016, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee referred Planned Parenthood and Novogenix to the FBI for criminal prosecution.

This recent CMP undercover video shows she is still doing it!

Stilton Speaks

Stilton has two pieces up about Trump’s first 100 day and the press coverage thereof.  So go read the text that goes with these toons. You know you want to!

2017_04 26 Stilton - 93 days

The one linked below includes a pdf of Stilton’s toons from Obama’s First 100 Daze, including this gem:

2009 Stilton - Matthew's Obama's Baby

I can’t stop giggling about this paragraph:

“As you’ll recall unless you drink as much as we do, Barack Obama spent the entirety of his first 100 days being fellated by the press, bowing to foreign potentates, making a famous “apology tour” to explain to foreigners how much our nation has always sucked, labeling military veterans as “potential terrorists,” incinerating taxpayer dollars with preposterous “stimulus programs” that only stimulated ACORN and other liberal evildoers and, most importantly, did all of these things while simultaneously being historically black. In stark contrast, Donald Trump has actually tried to accomplish things while being orange. But how has he fared?”

Doctor Admiral Ma’am

Rear Admiral Trent-Adams

President Trump has appointed Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams to the post of Acting Surgeon General.

Instead of applauding, Leftists are sneering that she is “just a nurse.”

Actually, she has a Ph.D. in nursing, so technically you could call her “Doctor Trent-Adams”, though I believe the correct form of address is “Admiral Trent-Adams.”

You could even call her “Ma’am”, since this is a proper and respectful address for a serving officer.

But whichever form you choose (or she prefers), the fact is that “just a nurse” is totally out of line.  She worked hard for her credentials and deserves to have them recognized.

Didn’t the Left tell us there’s no voter fraud?

I voted stickers

North Carolina just released the results of its voter fraud investigation.

441 voters were serving active felony sentences on Election Day.
  41 voters were non-citizens.
  24 voters voted twice.
    2 voters used the name of a family member who’d recently died.
