Obama set the bar low. Economists everywhere knew that a major part of any smart person’s agenda would be to gut what Obama did.
Donald Trump has been using a provision in the law only used once before to override regulations shoved down our throats by un-elected political appointees.
4 more Obama Era Regulations went up in smoke with congressional action. The mainstream media is lying as they deceptively make it look like these are all executive orders.
Two department of education mandates effectively trashing charter schools and giving the government power were trashed. A land use regulation giving the incompetent fools at the BLM dictatorial power over land-use was trashed and the world famous Obama “Blacklisting” rule was trashed.
Many of the Obama Era Regulations attacking the Coal and Oil Industry have been overturned by congress, but the latest executive order by Trump effectively guts what Obama did unilaterally. The Coal and Oil industry in America will explode and once again evil energy companies will be able to lease federal lands amongst other things.
In what should be the first of many Obama Era Internet Rules, a so-called Privacy Regulation that favored Obama Donors like Google and Facebook over Cable Carriers was repealed.
TRADE / INFASTRUCTURE:
Trump signs two executive orders to jump-start the Trade Agenda:
The first executive order aims to ensure that duties are fully collected when imposed on foreign importers who cheat.
“They are cheaters,” the president said forcefully.
The second order directs Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and the U.S. Trade Representative to compile a report within 90 days to identify a broad range of trade abuses, country by country and product by product.
The next thing you know, Trump is meeting with China, the number one abuser of our trade policy. Trump’s policies have had an immediate and dramatic effect on our trade deficit with China.
In February, the trade deficit to China fell by a record amount and American exports increased for a thrid straight month, according to ABC News.
The deficit fell to $43.6 billion, 9.6 percent below January’s deficit of $48.2 billion, while imports on Chinese goods fell by $8.6 billion. The overall trade deficit with China narrowed in February to $23 billion, 26.6 percent below the January total.
National Trades Unions are feeling the love for the President. They stood and applauded him several times when he appeared at their convention.
Regarding his infrastructure plan take a look at this:
Speaking at a town hall in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, President Donald Trump stated that in order for his $1 trillion infrastructure to succeed, he plans on cutting regulations preventing states speedily enacting new building projects.
After pointing to a chart illustrating the legislative process states must undergo prior to beginning highway construction projects, POTUS added “it can take anywhere between 10, if you’re really good, 10 years to 20 years, and then they vote and you lose.”
OBAMACARE REPEAL AND REPLACE:
GASP! Trump had golf with Rand Paul, the favorite of Republican-Hating “Libertarian” liberals everywhere. Those cloaking themselves in the Constitution to dislike conservatives should now be in a state of confusion as their imam is now involved in the AHCA effort. (you should see social media, trump hating “liberty Republicans” are in a state of fugue)
VP Pence went straight to the Freedom Caucus – the hard right group that was “credited” for derailing the first attempt to deal with Obamacare – with a series of compromises to get a deal done.
Meantime, after Anthem’s national announcement of withdrawing from Obamacare exchanges, the State of Iowa is now down to two exchange carriers with the withdrawal of two more. Remember, you can only get free —- through an exchange plan. You can’t get it if you buy from a carrier directly. This is why Obamacare is collapsing, the plans with free federal welfare attached to them are collapsing.
Speaking of Collapsing – ISIS is getting hammered. IT almost makes you think Obama wanted them in place, doesn’t it. Two months in to Trump admin and ISIS is getting pushed out of most of its’ key areas. This is an excellent report on the Trump Strategy to deal with ISIS.
Meantime – Trump met with Egyptian President Sisi. Sisi’s government threw out the Obama-backed Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. Sisi is also friendly to Israel.
And, in Syria, there was a chemical weapon attack leaving over 100 dead. This was the worst such incident in years. Trump rightfully laid it at the feet of Obama’s weakness.
