NPR Host Already Worried About Trump’s Use of Executive Authority

There are still 28 days left until President-elect Donald Trump will take the oath of office, but NPR host Diane Rehm is already expressing concern about how he will use his executive powers once in the White House.

In a segment on her daily talk show Thursday, Rehm was speaking with Juliet Eilperin, the Washington Post‘s White House bureau chief, when the host said she is worried that Trump and his administration are already expanding executive authority even though he has not yet taken office.

Rehm referenced the Trump transition team’s questionnaire that was sent out to current Energy Department employees requesting details on those who had worked on President Obama’s climate change initiatives. The questionnaire she was referring to also asked the employees to state whether they had attended United Nations climate change conferences.

“Isn’t that sort of expanding executive authority beyond the authority of the people at the top of that agency?” Rehm asked Eilperin, who responded by giving more details on the questionnaire and the department’s response.

Trump has yet to issue any executive orders or take other executive actions because he has not been inaugurated. He has promised to undo many of the executive orders issued by President Obama, however.

We all know that the liberals are running scared,and will try to reverse everything that President Trump does. Now is the time for the real Americans  to get their reward.

"He will use it quite differently than our current president did. He will involve all those individuals necessary to make it happen and not become Captain Solo."

So I am spared the terror of a half naked asian guy skewering me with an Epee?

Oh wait, that was Lt. Sulu. Or did you mean Harrison Ford in character?

There goes my quirky sense of humour again, and Merry Christmas!

"Michael G. Thompson

I agree 100 % with a CoS, but I recently read that the Congress has refused to call for one. Remember 2/3rds the States must petition the Congress to call one before it can occur. So the obvious question is what do they do now? It is also noted that the CoS organization recently convened a mock convention with great results. However, the CoS was short the required number needed to call for a real one.

Have a Good Day - AHP 1080

Oh, what they want or do not want is quite irrelevant.

"The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution..." - Article V

Note the word "shall". It is not optional, but rather obligatory. And if attempts to lawyerball non-compliance are attempted, then the Convention self-convienes, deliberates, resolves and pursues its ratification process as if Congress did. The resulting ratification is then submitted to the Congress as a done deal to be recorded. But what if Congress obstinately refuses to acccept the results?

THAT WOULD BE BREACH OF DUE-PROCESS GROUNDS FOR WAR.

The People own this country, not Congress.

How funny is that?  They didn't mind any of the many times the Kenyan did EO's.

The essence of being a liberal is a guilty conscience!  They spend enormous amounts of time attempting to assuage that guilt, by passing laws and spending OPM (other people's money), which has proven to be a failure every time its tried.

He will use it quite differently than our current president did.  He will involve all those individuals necessary to make it happen and not become Captain Solo.

All Communist programming comes to a halt. News stations are expected to report the news without taking sides. Leave politics to politicians and commit to being non-bias or pack your bags and move to Cuba if you think you can get a better deal.

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
