Trump to Clear Cut Federal Budget

President Elect Donald Trump has taken on a herculean task of eliminating funding for 72 government programs, saving the government $10.5 trillion dollars and balancing the budget within 10 years.

Given the 2017 Federal Budget is standing at $4.147 for 2017, with Trump’s proposed cuts, the government’s bloated budget would be reduced by a massive 25.3%.

Government workers were previously shaking in their khakis at a thought of a 10% reduction in the budget.

Cuts include the obvious, like defunding Planned Parenthood, and global warming offices and studies, but also eliminates spending on the following as an example:

Job Corps
National Endowment for the Arts
National Endowment for the Humanities
Environmental Justice Programs
National Clean Diesel Campaign
Land and Water Conservation Fund
EPA Civil Enforcement Program
Killing nine different Climate Programs
Privatizing the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (bye bye Sesame Street)
DOE Funding for Small Business Innovation Research
SBA Disaster Loan Program
Community Development Financial Institutions Fund
Export-Import Bank
Multi-State Plan Program
Violence Against Women Grants
Office of Community Oriented Policing Services
Grants from the Office of Justice Programs
Legal Services Corporation

Etc. etc., etc.,

Team Trump also plans to lease out or sell all of the spare office space provided by the cuts to the EPA.

The extensive list, compiled by the Heritage Foundation and adopted by incoming Trump staffers, is likely the tip of the iceberg to finally reign in the size and scope of government.

Think on this in comparison to politics today. Don't be alarmed politics is a business. So the left reach out destroy a border, institute programs of little value to the working class.
So, if nobody bought stolen property, I mean damage the buyer with penalties that would make most cry foul then when nobody is buying the goods the thief has to find another means of income. That's what we need to do with Politics. That's exactly what republic does it limits govt intrusion in my life a democracy is like the relationship between thief and buyer. Trump is cutting these programs and we may at some point manage our nation's expenses. It's a start, when Trump gets into returning jobs and people off welfare the savings will grow, the mass exiting of ilegals, the hundreds of billions annual savings, the completion of keystone and exporting fuel and not importing. I think Trump is right on.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Here's more great news:

President Donald Trump Will Sign Executive Order Sunday to Defund International Planned Parenthood

 NATIONAL   STEVEN ERTELT   JAN 20, 2017   |   2:24PM    WASHINGTON, DC

A new report out today indicates President Donald Trump will sign an executive order to defund International Planned Parenthood.

Most pro-life Americans are anxiously awaiting Congress to pass a bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. While that defunding legislation concerns the domestic-based Planned Parenthood abortion corporation, president Trump has the ability to put in place an executive order that would revoke funding for its International affiliate.

When pro-abortion former President Barack Obama took office, Obama overturned a policy that prevented funding of groups that promote or perform abortions overseas. The Mexico City Policy covered over $400 million in federal funds, part of which flowed to the abortion businesses International Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International for their foreign efforts.

As LifeNews.com reported, the pro-life policy had been in place during the entirety of the Bush administration and Obama rescinded it on his first week in office. Named for a 1984 population conference where President Reagan initially announced it, the Mexico City Policy made it so family planning funds could only go to groups that would agree to not do abortions or lobby foreign nations to overturn their pro-life laws.

While the main bill to defund Planned Parenthood must be approved by Congress, Trump can restore the Mexico City Policy by executive order and reportedly intends to do so on Sunday — according to a report in a pro-abortion publication.

As one of his first acts in the Oval Office, the Republican president-elect plans to restore the “Mexico City policy” as soon as Sunday, a congressional staffer told Foreign Policy. The timing of the executive order on Sunday would coincide with the anniversary of the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

Obama’s decision to force Americans to pay for promoting and perfor....

Reacting to the decision in a poll conducted by the Gallup organization, 58 percent of Americans oppose Obama’s pro-abortion decision while just 35 percent support it and 7 percent have no opinion.

Breaking down the new poll further, Gallup asked respondents to state their opinion on seven major actions President Obama has taken since becoming president. Overturning the Mexico City Policy engendered more opposition than any of the other actions and it had the lowest level of support.

The pro-abortion move also evoked the least support from Democrats and the most opposition from Republicans and independents.

While 59 percent of Democrats supported the move, it came in last among the seven total issues on which Gallup surveyed.

Only 8 percent of Republicans backed overturning the limits as did just 33 percent of the independent voters surveyed — with opposition higher about this action than any other Obama has taken a president.

The results of the Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews with 1,027 adults across the country and were conducted January 30-February 1.

At the time, Douglas Johnson, the legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee, condemned the decision.

He told LifeNews.com how the executive order will hurt non-abortion groups that provide medical care and services to women and families in foreign nations.

“One effect of Obama’s order will be to divert many millions of dollars away from groups that do not promote abortion, and into the hands of those organizations that are the most aggressive in promoting abortion in developing countries,” he said.

“Obama’s order will predictably result in a redirection of funds to groups such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which are ideologically committed to the doctrine that abortion on demand must be universally available as a birth control method,” Johnson said.

Hallelujah AGAIN!! Can't wait till they close up, maybe Roe v. Wade can go away. Permanently.

Marilyn, this is great news, the wife and I discussed planned parenthood the lack of services, the payments for other than was legal from the govt and abortions a form of contraception by those who anxiously have no control of their lives. The main focus, the innocent life of God's baby. Not a practice anymore barbaric that the execution of a child. I will be watching tomorrow for the decapitation of planned parenthood.
The name planned parenthood is obscene they don't plan life they plan death. You can't have parenthood without children. So obviously disgustingly filthy to hell.

Need to eliminate foreign aid to countries that hate us.

 Good start... every program, department, agency, and office, of the Federal Government which doesn't meet Constitutional muster... which, is not directly supported or authorized by the US Constitution... MUST be 'defunded' and referred to Congress for repeal... OR...  Congress must cite and prove that they are Constitutional... BEFORE... Pres. Trump reinstates expenditures for those programs or agencies. It is time to take an ax to the Federal Government and unconstitutional expenditures of the People's money... Too, defund all programs and agencies not directly authorized by the Constitution.  

Trump's DOJ and White House Council should review... every expenditure of the Federal Budget, to ensure they are supported by the Constitution. The DOJ or White House Council should recommend Pres. Trump use his Executive Power, to PRESERVE and DEFEND the Constitution, by sequestering all funds that support UNCONSTITUTIONAL programs and agencies.  

The process of verifying the constitutional authority... of government programs and agencies is the duty of the President/Chief Executive.  The President is the final constitutional CHECK against fraud, waste, and abuse, by members of Congress and the Administration, for those looking to violate their Constitutional mandates and authority.  The President, must sequester all funding for unconstitutional programs and agencies... until Congress proves they are Constitutional.

Congress has the burden to demonstrate that their programs and agents are constitutionally authorized... or they must repeal the authorizing legislation, as an unconstitutional usurpation of power.  The President has the Constitutional duty to challenge unconstitutional programs and agencies... by withholding funds until proven otherwise.

Great Post Col.......you've cut to the chase and hit the nail on the head.   That's the military man coming out of you I see.   Plus lets not forget to add this to the pile as well...."Pork"   Let's demand the  "line item veto", and this pork thing will go sour by not being cooked.   Lets keep it out of the kitchen in the first place.   Kill the Lobbyist, put limits on how long congress men and women can serve, institute the line item veto, and send back to the states what belongs in the states.    The other item that needs much attention is our voting system.  I have much disdain that each state has their own system, rules and regulations.   I feel this needs to be brought into and under some federal rules that all states will apply our votes in the exact same manner as the next state.  ID voting rules----yes!!   Citizenship-----Yes..!!  Do away with the electoral college-----not sure about this yet.  I would even advocate that a system be implemented where we all can vote online.  Voter ID numbers like social security numbers that cannot be duplicated for multiple votes.     Away with privately produced voting machines.   Do away with the liberals controlling the polling places.   Do away with any paper ballots.  Come on all you smart Silicon Valley folks....get to it and come up with something that will work.  Lets create things and systems that will make this country great again.

I'm down with all that and more. I say cut this gov. to the bone while building up are best vital institutions.

If you get rid of the electoral college California will decide our POUS every time, them and New York City. The electoral college brought us Trump. States elect the president. We vote to decide how our states will vote. The electoral college gives the country folk and the rural folks the same power as the city folks. Be careful here!

Absolutely!!!  The selfish people on these coasts do not understand that.

If this administration would get congress to pass a law where any state that violates the constitution (sanctuary cites, allowing illegal aliens to remain in their state, issuing driver licenses to illegals-knowingly allowing them to vote, that state would be excluded national elections that i believe would slow them down and take away California's 55 electoral votes. N.Y.'s 29.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
