PPS REPORT! TRUMP 1ST DAY! JERUSALEM

WASHINGTON (AP) — As a candidate, Donald Trump made a slew of “Day One” promises that any president would find daunting.

He declared that repealing and replacing his predecessor’s health care law would be “one of his first acts as president.” He released an 18-point plan for actions that would push forward sweeping ethics reforms and potentially undo scores of regulations. And he promised to fundamentally change the nation’s approach to immigration and begin work on an impenetrable wall along the southern border – all on his first day.

Some of Trump’s proposals would be easy: They require executive action or simply announcing his intention to do something.

Others, however, require congressional approval and would likely draw numerous legal challenges.

The list is long and ambitious – and there’s no indication from the White House that the president has any intention of taking them all up on Monday.

Nonetheless, here is a list of everything Trump promised to do on “Day One” of his administration:

IMMIGRATION:

-Stop all federal funding to “sanctuary cities” – places where local officials don’t arrest or detain immigrants living in the country illegally for federal authorities.

-Begin deporting what Trump estimates to be more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants living in the country.

-Cancel visas for citizens of foreign countries that won’t take those criminal illegal immigrants back.

-Immediately terminate former President Barack Obama’s “two illegal executive amnesties.” That presumably includes DACA, which protects people who were brought into the country illegally as children.

-Begin working on an “impenetrable physical wall” along the southern border.

-Ask Congress to pass “Kate’s Law,” which would increase penalties on people who unlawfully re-enter the United States after being removed.

SECURITY AND DEFENSE:

-Immediately suspend the Syrian refugee program.

-Convene his generals and inform them that they have 30 days to submit a new plan for defeating the Islamic State group.

-Suspend immigration from “terror-prone regions” where he says vetting is too difficult.

-Implement new “extreme” immigration vetting techniques.

TRADE:

-Announce his intention to renegotiate or withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.

-Formally withdraw from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership.

-Direct his treasury secretary to label China a currency manipulator.

DRAINING THE SWAMP and GOVERNMENT REFORM:

-Propose a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress.

-Ban White House and congressional officials from becoming lobbyists for five years after they leave the government.

-Ban former White House officials from lobbying on behalf of foreign governments for the rest of their lives.

-Ban foreign lobbyists from raising money for U.S. elections.

-Impose a hiring freeze on federal employees, excluding military, public safety, and public health staff.

-Impose a requirement that for every new federal regulation imposed, two existing regulations be eliminated.

ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT:

-Remove any Obama-era roadblocks to energy projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline.

-Lift restrictions on mining coal and drilling for oil and natural gas.

-Cancel payments to the U.N.’s climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.

HEALTH CARE, GUN CONTROL AND OTHER ISSUES:

-Cancel “every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama.”

-Ask Congress to send him a bill to repeal and replace Obama’s signature health care law.

-Begin the process of selecting a new Supreme Court justice.

-Get rid of gun-free zones in schools and on military bases.

Obama and Afghanistan – Endless War- His legacy

Obama’s ‘Good War’: Afghanistan in Ruins Eight Years Later

“As President, I will make the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban the top priority that it should be. This is a war that we have to win,” Obama vowed in a major 2008 campaign speech on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama also vowed to turn the “good war” in Afghanistan around and pull out all U.S. service members.

Today is the last day of President Obama’s eight-year disastrous administration. You may recall that in 2008 Obama vowed to: Bring our boys home from Afghanistan. Eight years later the carnage continues, the body count grows, the opium trade is thriving and many of our men and woman who return are committing suicide every day. This is Obama’s legacy, his promises collapse of their own weight.
Interesting that the sycophantic, kiss-Obama’s-ring-news-media never, but never mentions any of this. Nope. Obama gets a pass. He can do no wrong in the eyes of the liberal left-wing media that informed us for months before the 2016 election that Trump had NO CHANCE OF WINNING.
Obama’s promise of ending the war in Afghanistan like his other promises of hope and change amounted to nothing more than lip-service and talking points to rally his base.
Obama leaves office with a record 95 million people un-employed. A sluggish, and all-but-dead economy. A middle Class that is reeling from the burden of a 35% Federal Income tax, and a disastrous immigration policy, which Trump will have to deal with once he is sworn in tomorrow.
Obama’s legacy can be summed up in one phrase that I read a few years back when the writing on the wall became very clear. I hope I have some change left when Obama leaves office.
In closing. I believe the powers-that-be, the Military/Industrial complex controls what happens in Afghanistan. We have a complacent media that never reports the ongoing suicides by our men and women who come back from “Over there.”
Is there a  shadow government? Remember this, JFK was going to splinter the CIA into a 1000 pieces and then take down the Federal Reserve and bring our boys home from Vietnam. I would posit that these three positions is what got him assassinated in Dallas. (I’ll be doing a special report from Dallas on PPS Report soon)
Will Trump drain the toxic swamp that is Washington? Will he end the 16 years of fighting in Afghanistan? Will he go after the rogue elects in the CIA? Will he audit the FED? Only time will tell.
In the meantime our  media rails against him at every turn but is all but silent in pointing out the disastrous legacy of Obama’s eight years in office.
