#1 Donald Trump – The First 100 Days… by algernonpj 27.09.2015 16:17


This is the first of two articles evaluating Trump's effect on the presidential race.

My only disagreement is that I have not found any article in which Michelle Malkin has reverted to praising Jeb.

Donald Trump – The First 100 Days…
Posted on September 26, 2015 by sundance

Donald Trump announced his intentions to run for President on June 16th, 2015; one hundred days ago.

Wow, what a hundred days it has been.

Think about it.

In the past 100 days we have found out that virtually every espoused position of the “conservative media” was a total ruse. The Salem Media group primarily among them.

Red State (Eric Erickson) now finds himself proclaiming that Jeb Bush is the most conservative governor he’s ever known. Web sites like Twitchy, Hot Air, Human Events, Michelle Malkin and National Review suddenly singing the praises of a Jeb Bush they formerly said was just another GOP establishment sell out.

Jeb goes from RINO villain to GOP hero faster than you can say Donald Trump.

“Conservative” punditry like George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Stephen Hayes, Charles Lane, Rich Lowry, Jonah Goldberg and many more opining on all media a previously hidden “open borders” position. All of a sudden they are telling us walls will never work, illegal aliens are the bedrock of the U.S. social fabric and it’s profoundly unfair to even contemplate their deportation. Oh, the humanity.

That’s a serious dose of sunlight upon a previously hidden agenda.

Wow, what a ride.

McConnell and BoehnerOn the legislative side John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have worked earnestly to insure Obamacare is never removed, the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal (Fast Track) is structured to insure passage -and destruction of the middle class- with 51 yea votes; and providing Iran with nuclear weapons is similarly fast-tracked using the same legislative threshold.

Who would have thought?

Oh yeah, but don’t expect them to use “reconciliation” (51 votes) for the Federal budget; nope, NO BUDGET – preferring instead to retain the formerly Democrat process of Continuing Resolutions (CR) to fund the government.

The 2016 fiscal year begins in five days and with full control of the House and Senate the Republicans instead choose to skip a budget and use a CR. That’s a gobsmacking reversal of positions they formerly railed against as they requested electoral support.

The GOP claimed the 2014 Mid-Terms hung on the tenuous position: ‘if only they were given control of both chambers of Congress they would stop this deficit usurpation’. So we gave it, and what? Oh yeah, they did the exact opposite.

Senators, and Presidential Candidates, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz both voting to allow the destruction of the Middle Class (Trade Deal) and offering up 40% of the global production to Wall Street and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce hell bent on outsourcing. Voting on other stuff in the Senate, nah…. no biggie.
