When it comes to Trump, don't freak out

So, it turns out that six weeks after the media declared "Trumpcare" dead, the House will vote on it tomorrow, which means passage.

How does "Trump the Establishment" end?

Oh yes:
Never bet against Donald John Trump.
But some readers have hedged their bets lately.

They may fear being sold out by President Trump.

They fret about the budget that includes funding for Planned Parenthood but not the Wall. The Planned Parenthood money already was allocated, and the Wall won't need money until the next budget year, which begins October 1.

The fact is, Trump is doing fine.

But facts are seldom reported because the Washington Establishment wants Trump supporters to worry.

Reporters wish to sow the seeds of despair and distrust among us.

Resist.

When they say the budget is longer than Obamacare, ask them how long last year's budget was.

When they say the new bill is Obamacare light, ask them where the mandates are.

When they say the Wall will never be built, ask them if they did not say Trump would not win.

Legislating is the realm of Congress, not the president.

Just remember what Trump's powers are as president.

He has only a pen and a phone.

Unlike Barack Obama, he does not have 2 million federal employees registered as voters in his party.

Unlike Barack Obama, he does not have the media in his pocket.

Unlike Barack Obama, he does not have a Congress that fears being called racist if it calls him out.

All President Trump has is a pen and a phone.

Oh, and a Twitter account.

But one man telling the truth beats a media that lies, fabricates, and prevaricates.

I told readers last August to hang in there, even when all the polls said he would lose.

Now he is the president.

Keep the faith, baby.

On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. I would not say it will pass, Don. I would say that they are continually putting together repeal (of at least parts) legislation and seeing which weasels that said they would vote for the bill have decided to change their minds.

    Continuously doing this puts a lot of people on record (if you want to go that way) of saying which repeal they cannot support. What anyone wants to do with that (potentially intimidating) information is truly outside of my expertise.

    But I say let us have a lot of votes on a lot of ObamaCare! I say let us see what parts of this Cluster-Frak that members of the House and Senate (and which members of those ancient and august bodies) want to keep about and which they want to dump. Voice vote. Roll call. Speak up and be heard.

    That is how I would have fun, but then again I have no problem putting a worm on a hook.

    1. Yeah, Mikey, it's funny (or telling?) - I've seen or read at least a half dozen Reepub reps the last couple of days explaining THEIR positions, THEIR objections, THEIR solutions. None of them even bothered to mention what their CONSTITUENTS wanted. I guess they think we're stupid. Well y'all, when next November rolls around, we'll remember your disrespect.

  2. The media tells us it is the voice of our doom.

    They LIE like a 100% unknown-fibre-collection rug. Let's stomp on that rug.

  3. I'll worry about the things that Trump didn't get done at the end of his second term.

  4. Sundance at the Treehouse says that this is all theatre, the Uniparty won't let it pass because all their backers who have basically bought them, don't want it to pass. What I have noticed is that there is not a peep from President Trump about it (maybe a tweet?) He is certainly not promoting it like he did the last effort. As for "the wall", Mulvaney seems pleased with the funding for the steel replacement wall that has been funded, saying that a see through is what the border patrollers want, at least for that section. There are a lot of people stuck on Trump's rhetoric about a big beautiful concrete monster, and are now screaming this isn't to the letter what he ran on. Mulvaney's press conference well worth seeing.CD

    1. Indeed. Single payer on board to the tune of trillions. Notice the ramp in the market.

      Their strength is the stupidity of the voter on civics (Gruberism). The house kabuki is only half a show because the Schumer controlled Senate will have their shot at blocking, which they will.

      There was one report, at only one time yesterday, and it quickly was dumped, that no state, I repeat no state, will opt for a waiver of the rules via HHS being proposed under the amendments. Thus, until insurance sales across state boundaries is enacted, this is a grand farce and prices will continue to increase.

      The CBO hasn't scored, and there's a reason for this. Remember, the CBO score was the entire talking point last time.

  5. This is the Obama budget to keep government running that didn't get passed last year which needs to get through the Senate. The Trump budget will be the September one. Maybe President Trump, by then, will have a full cabinet of under secretaries and administrators and be willing to go to the mat on the Wall and other issues. We waited 8 years for this, so I can wait a few more months when President Trump has his full team and has better support from Congress. Congress is afraid of being blamed for a government shutdown, even though the Democrats will have caused it, but when the progressives control the airwaves, it is hard to get the truth out.
