AS USUALLY THE LEAD STORY ON THE NEWS IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING HAPPENING. THE BIG STORY IS USUALLY HIDDEN FROM THE PUBLIC EYE UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE TO STOP THE DEVIOUS PLAN …
I want us all to take a trip down memory lane to January-February 2009. Barack Obama had been sworn in as president of the United States and does anyone recall massive violent protests?
I’m trying to remember if then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell referred to Obama’s cabinet as the “swamp cabinet”…how cute. Yes, McConnell did say he wanted to ensure Obama didn’t win a second term, but it was based on policy disagreement…which for the fascist progressive socialists is a no-no. You can’t disagree with them or else face their rage.
Remember it was Obama who had control of the House and Senate, and who chided and admonished Republicans that he’d won, elections have consequences, and told them to get to the back of the bus…racist anyone? Obama didn’t seek any GOP input when it came to his massive trillion dollar stimulus, or Obamacare…funny, now the left is blaming the GOP for the failure of Obamacare. Nope, you can’t make this stuff up.
And thanks to the Washington Free Beacon, they put this whole thing into perspective:
Not since President George Washington’s initial formation of a cabinet in 1789 has an American president’s cabinet picks been approved as slowly as the Senate is approving President Donald Trump’s nominees.
Trump has now been president for a full three weeks, and the number of approved members in his cabinet stands at seven—a number that was boosted by three contested confirmations last week that were opposed by almost the entire Democratic caucus.
Senate Democrats, vowing to use “everything” they can to stop Trump’s nominees, have used procedural tricks like boycotting committee meetings to slow the confirmation process to a historically slow pace. Recent administrations have had many more nominees approved at the three-week mark. Barack Obama had 12 out of 15 nominees approved, George W. Bush had his entire cabinet approved, and Bill Clinton had all but one approved in less than a day.
For most of history, approving cabinet nominees has been a non-issue. Presidents John Kennedy, Richard Nixon, and Jimmy Carter had their entire cabinet approved in the first days of their presidency—a brisk pace that has been the norm for most of U.S. history. As noted by historian Robert David Johnson, the only confirmation process at all comparable to the current situation was that of President George H.W. Bush, and even he had 10 of his 14 nominees confirmed by the three-week mark.
One difference between Trump and Bush, however, is that Bush was facing a Democratic-controlled Senate that actually had the power to stop his nominations. Senate Democrats, however, continue to delay the inevitable.
Ben Carson (Department of Housing and Urban Development), Rick Perry (Department of Energy), Ryan Zinke (Department of the Interior), David Shulkin (Department of Veterans Affairs), Steve Mnuchin (Department of Treasury), and Wilbur Ross (Department of Commerce) have all been approved by the necessary committees and are awaiting votes in the full Senate.
Only Mnuchin and Shulkin were sworn in yesterday.
The continuing obstruction of even uncontroversial cabinet choices is being driven by demands from the liberal base of the Democratic Party, which is demanding that Democratic lawmakers not cooperate with Trump on anything.”
Now, there you have the truth, and I submit, ladies and gents, this is no longer about “obstructionism” but is about a deliberate undermining of the peaceful transition of power in the United States. This is about the liberal progressive socialist left seeking to undermine our Constitutional Republic.
Why? It’s simple, they lost. They’ll never accept the directive given to conservatives and the GOP to get over it and that elections have consequences. If they can’t have their way, they’ll destroy it. And that means the physical destruction of property, along with the destruction of this nation…because they do not get to “fundamentally transform” our America.
All these town hall meeting protests are truly “astroturf” operations funded by left wing organizations to bus in the ill-informed into congressional districts in which they do not reside. Many of these protesters are just paid henchmen, and these anarchists are pretty well uniformed — as a matter of fact, covering the face is something Islamic terrorists and jihadists do.
We have shared with y’all on this venue the hypocrisy of the left…like previous statements from Bill Clinton and Barack Obama on immigration. We know folks like Senators Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren supported school choice and voucher programs before they were against it.
I have no issue with being a loyal opposition, but that means having better policies and a vision for this nation. It’s obvious — as a result of the November election — that the Democrat Party, owned by the liberal progressive left, does not. It’s also evident in the consistent losses of US Senate, House, Gubernatorial, and State legislature positions that the coastal party of leftism is being soundly rejected. READ MORE
