While everyone melts down over Flynn, I believe there’s a much BIGGER PLOT in the works to…

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.

And what is their response? Anger, violence, intimidation, coercion, personal attacks, and moving further to the left. Consider that the two top candidates for chairman of the Democrat National Committee are Rep. Keith Ellison and former Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez. Need I say more? As I’ve said, we are in an ideological civil war — that is hardly civil — as it’s enabled by a complicit liberal progressive media establishment that has lost credibility.

But, what the Democrat Party needs to understand is this: 2018 may yet be another Armageddon for them. There are 25 Democrat Senators up for reelection, 10 of them in states Donald Trump won last November. If Chuck Schumer thinks these antics won’t be forgotten, he’s recently visited Colorado and smoked some weed.

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs has self-preservation at the top, and at some point in time, these 10 Democrat Senators are going to say, “cut the crap Chuck”…or else they’ll go the way of many of their previous colleagues did in the 2014 election cycle.

Here’s the deal, the Trump administration needs to have a sign up every day showing how many days without a full cabinet. This needs to be their primary message that starts off every press conference, any media appearance. They need to go on offense and message that this is not obstructionism but a slap in the face of the American people who voted last November.

This is a dangerous game, placing the United States in a dangerous position — hence why nations like North Korea and Iran are taking belligerent stances. Consider that out of the Department of Defense there are 60 cabinet confirmed positions…so far only one has been filled: the Secretary of Defense. This isn’t just about the primary cabinet position but all those down positions of vital deputy and undersecretary positions the left is delaying.

And on top of that we have an activist liberal court that now believes they can rule on American foreign policy and national security — I don’t recall the left saying ANYTHING when Obama changed the Cuban immigration policy in his last week in office. No outcries about relegating freedom-loving Cubans seeking to escape a brutal communist regime. I guess not, because that’s exactly what the progressive socialist left dreams of having here in the and of the free.

I find the actions of Senator Chuck Schumer and the left appalling, deplorable, despicable, and disgusting. Y’all lost the election; stop your freaking crying and whining because if you place this country in a bad position because we don’t have a complete transition of governance, you own whatever happens.

As I’ve said before, y’all suck. Y’all keep embracing these protests and violence and you’ll quietly end up going the way of the Whig Party. You wanna have a debate on the merits of policy? Fine, but stop with these insidious, childlike temper tantrums. I doubt any of you know what a risk corridor, workforce participation rate, corporate inversions are, or how many new taxes were in Obamacare, but you sure know how to complain.

I could not have put it any better or worded it more succinctly than Col. Allen B. West has!
Come to think of it, talk about a cabinet level position or as a very capable replacement for National Security Adviser...Hmm.....Not only does Col. West have the wherewithals to be a very high ranking and influential Trump administration government official but he is as experienced an Army field commander as any name being mentioned around. And, having been a congressman from Florida, he already knows a great deal about Washington DC and pretty much knows how to navigate himself in the murky waters of the Potomac which of late has been referred to almost unambiguously as the "swamp", in a manner of speaking,to borrow a word from President Trump.
Nancy Pelosi is quick to label President Trump incompetent or describe him as such. For the love of me, I am not even part of her constituency from California, and I am squirming in my seat at the sad reality that she is even a member of the US Congress
given how despicably corrupt, incompetent and worthless she is or has been a congresswoman wasting US taxpayer's money. Let me stress the word, " WORTHLESS" because just like that worthless despicable liberal Democrat senator from Nevada, Harry Reid was, this congresswoman from California takes the cake when it comes to figuring out how murky the water is in that proverbial Washington swamp. I am not even going to dignify the congressional representation from the State of California because they have at least two more names I could think of hailing from that state that muddies the already murky waters of the Washington swamp. How deplorably racially bigoted, hateful and arrogant these representatives from California truly are, is beyond the pale.
THEY ARE WRONG ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND JUST LIKE THE VERY BIASED LIBERAL MSM IS, THESE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS ARE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY HENCE DESTINED TO BE FOOTNOTES IN THE HISTORY BOOKS THENCE RELEGATED TO THE DUSTBIN OF HISTORY.
Just three weeks into his Office as POTUS, President Trump has already done more to negotiate for business and job retention here in the US than his predecessor did in that period of time and to think that he does not even have his entire cabinet filled in thanks in large measure to the obstructionist plots of worthless liberal Democrats. I do not include Senator Steve Manchin from West Virginia
as part of that screaming crowd. There is so much more to say about these deplorable worthless liberal Democrats but food fodder for another days discussion perhaps.

Call it what it is. The Progressive Liberal Democrat Party is a crime syndicate, led by anti-American hooligans with the expressed purpose of tearing down traditional American values and principles, and "transforming" what is left into globalism with them holding complete political power over the public.

This syndicate is not going to go away. They are doubling, even tripling down on the destruction of anything and anybody who stands in their way.

Education, the media, and nearly every single social institution with a microphone, has now been so compromised, so infested and infected into wide open support of this program, that secrecy is no longer considered as necessary.

We are at WAR!  How dare we elect Trump! The election was Clinton's!

President Trump had better realize this fact and go after Clinton tooth and nail. To let her go, as congress did in letting Obama go on and on and on, is a show of absolute weakness and stupidity.

If you, or I, break the law we pay for it. Fines, Jail, even death row. But Obama didn't. Clinton hasn't.

Aren't they just so special?

You are totally right. "The Progressive Liberal Democrat Party is a crime syndicate" that wants to latch on to leaks of illegal activities in the White House. The nerve of these progressives to question the legality of our Supreme Leader Donald J. Trump's activities in the White House. We the people elected Trump to run the country with total and undisputed authority. As of now we need to deckare that it is un-American to dissent or oppose our Supreme Leader.

Too late to change Senator Manchin"s first name to Joe. My sincere apologies for my mistake.

They should all be subpoened and have their asses handed to them publicly as the traitors they are.

These people are indeed traitors for latching to leaks about illegal activities in the White House. Our Supreme Leader Donald J. Trump is sworn in as president and thus should have total and complete control over the country and all her people. All American patriots need to pledge allegiance to Trump and not question his undisputed authority.

As usual Lt. Col. Allen West is correct. He is one of the only persons that has the guts and courage to, "Tell it like it is." 

Every thing he said is true. And, yes, he should be in Trump's cabinet at a high level position. The question for me is, "Why is he not being considered for that position???" 

The only thing that I disagree with is, we now have the majority in the house, senate and the Presidency. We don't need the demorats to fill any position or confirm anyone. Why is it that McConnell will not bring the names up, have the hearings, submit them to the Senate for a vote and if need be, use the nuclear option to, "GET IT DONE?" 

I think we all know the answer to that question. Rather than blame it on the demorats, he needs to have a sign up at every press conference, telling the republicans to quit messing around and confirm his cabinet and get it done NOW!!

Sean Hannity said the exact same thing a couple of nights ago. WE don't need the demorats to do anything. 

JUST GET OFF YOUR BUTTS AND GET'R DONE!!!

James,

Isn't it a marvel that the minority are still in control of the Senate? What the hell is the majority in control of? Only their bowels?

McConnell is such a simpering weakling. In the House we have Ryan, who learned how to grin. Even the term "snowflakes" couldn't begin to describe these two "Majestic Leaders of the Right."

Where is Boehner when you need him. At least he had the guts to smoke! These guys are gutless.

Dale,

You are absolutely right! I have posted several times already, that the problem isn't only the left and the other scum bags, it is the Republican establishment. 

We all were elated when we finally got control of all three branches of government and what has happened? NOTHING!!!

It's like in a fight. You far outnumber your opposition but don't use all your forces to fight, because it, "might not be fair!" Especially after you just came through 8 years of being outnumbered and saw how they play the game. 

"Either you are with us or you are AGAINST US!" And it appears a shame, they are THE LATTER. 

It's the "one thing at a time" gang.

Hoping on hope that Trump will wear himself out before anything changes.

REPEAL became REPLACE, which then became REPAIR.

What the hell does THAT signify?

James   My question is this. If McConnell goes nuclear, does that mean that we have moved to a democracy, with a simple majority vote? Is it a slippery slope? or not?

Any thoughts?

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
