TRUMP TO DEMOCRATS “DO YOU LIKE EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE NOW?”

The old saying, “what goes around comes around” has suddenly bit the Democrats and their cohorts in the butt. Democrat governors and their attorney generals have gone to court over Trump’s executive order halting subsidies to insurance companies; these subsidies lower the premium cost to those who purchase health insurance through exchanges. The subsidies are illegal; the courts have ruled on that. No appropriation by congress to allow the government legally to make these payments exists. But this didn’t matter to Obama who violated the law. About 6 million Americans benefit from the subsidies.

Trump weighed in six months ago, “I’ve been saying for the last year and a half that the best thing we can do politically speaking is let Obamacare explode,” Trump said. “It is exploding right now.”

Experts said the ACA wasn’t “exploding,” but that it needed fixes to help incentivize insurers to stay in marketplaces.

But now, six months later, Obamacare may actually be on the road to “exploding” – catalyzed by an accelerant poured over it by President Trump.

This decision has fired up the mouths of Pelosi and Up-Chuck Schumer who are fiercely blowing smoke into the wind and some other place. It was OK for Obama to issue numerous executive orders when he felt necessary; the executive order was Obama’s prime legislative weapon. If congress didn’t pass the law, he “the anointed one” would get it done; for instance the dreamers putsch. So he went E.O.

Now the shoe is on the other foot.  The Democrats think they have a winning hand; yeah right – didn’t they think that on November 8, 2016? Please bring in the clowns.

The White House argued the subsidies are illegal, because they are not appropriated by Congress. House Republicans sued the Obama administration hoping to stop the payments. As noted above the court ruled the payments to be illegal.

That’s not all the Trump administration has done that could pull the rug out from under the ACA — it has also shortened the sign-up period for health care; closed the federal exchange on Sundays; and cut the budget for marketing efforts, including ending advertising to urge sign ups.

Don’t be fooled by biased opinions and sleazy editorials, Trump has the  winning hand, even if the Republicans balk and the Democrats look to the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip. The bottom line is this, the Democrats won’t negotiate – their feeble effort to blame Trump and the Republicans will go nowhere but up in ashes like the hundreds of homes in Santa Rosa.

If the government shuts down won’t have the slightest effect on most Americans, in fact this will be a good thing. They realize that a bloated government is not too big to fail. GO TRUMP

TAKING THE LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS

Democrats have a psychiatric malady? Under Obama they got what they wanted, one way or another. Many times the Republicans acquiesced to their demands. Case in point, Holder, Lynch, Kagan and Sotomayor were given the green light with a minimum of ten Republican votes. When the votes weren’t there for Obama to pass his agenda, he resorted to executive orders. The Democrats applauded this, they gave him a standing ovation. Federalism did not matter, it was the big picture, States rights meant little.

However, now that the shoe is on the other foot they, these same Democrats that applauded Obama’s executive orders, challenge Trumps. The latest being Sessions indication that funds will be withheld from State, County and Local governments that do not cooperate with ICE. This has gotten the feathers up of many of the grandstanding mayors. For example the bad hombre from the Big Apple, de Blasio.

Mayor Bill de Blasio a few months ago said President Donald Trump’s executive order stripping funding for sanctuary cities would be severely damaging to New York City.

Trump followed up and signed the order targeting sanctuary cities, which do not arrest or detain immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.

“We will not allow ICE agents to threaten that protection, disrupt classes or take any action that would be detrimental to our students,” de Blasio said at a press conference held outside New York’s Tweed Courthouse Tuesday afternoon. “With these updated guidelines, we are reinforcing the fact that a school is a safe and protected location,” he said, adding that his promise would not apply if ICE got a court order.

A November 2014 report by the New York Post estimated the state has a population of 35o,000 illegal-alien students. Their illegal immigrant parents work throughout the city, mostly in jobs where employers want cheap employees, and they spend tens of billions of dollars each year at local businesses.

“Specifically, concerns about possible federal action that would penalize cities financially for their policies toward immigrants and lead to increased deportation of immigrants,” the Conference of Mayors’ website reads. “With the January 28 issuance of an executive order halting admission to the United States of refugees and other immigrants, mayors and the Conference focused attention on these issues as well.”

According to de Blasio’s new protocol, ICE agents will not be allowed to enter a school unless they provide a warrant and wait outside the school until school employees consult with the Department of Education attorney. If the ICE agent appears without a warrant, de Blasio is instructing the school to call the NYPD.

“This adds another layer of defense so that it’s quite clear if an agent shows up, the default position is they’re not coming in the building,” de Blasio said. “ICE agents will not be wandering the halls of a school. Legal staff from the DOE and/or Law Department have to get involved, the principal has to get involved, senior police officials have to get involved before any decision is made on how to proceed.”

The IRONY here is simple, de Blasio swore to uphold the laws of the State of New York and the United States Constitution, but seems he only will when it suits him. Trump should have him arrested for violating Federal Law in this regard.
