In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

    1. I sure hope so! I wonder about some of the town hall meetings Republicans are holding. The articles I’ve read appear to draw an analogy between the Tea Party protests at town hall meetings in 2010 and the constituent protests now. But I wonder who exactly is attending these meetings. Surely there must be some constituents who are in favor of the Republicans making changes? If so, that’s not reflected in the media’s coverage.

      1. Beware the media.
        The people are in favor of changes being made however we were told that changes would be made during the last election cycle and nothing was done.
        Hence the irritability.
        The people are tired of talk, they want results.

    1. Actually, he could do this every 3-4 days– so there would be no way to fight it in court– the new one rescinds the old one, and then reinstates the {same} policy. A law suit would have to reference a specific EO. It’s really hard to hit a moving target!

  1. I’m all for asking congress to IMPEACH the idiot judges [and justices] that were sleeping during “constitutional law” class… Someone that ignorant of the law and/or the US constitution should NOT be making important decisions on ANY case before the court(s).

    How many of them are there? Maybe 300+ ???

    When do the IMPEACHMENT hearings for these idiotic “judges” start?

  2. We should pay attention to this one:

    “How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency”



    The war room for the sabotage of President Trump’s administration is Obama’s “Organizing For Action” (OFA) group.The mysterious Obama Foundation seems to be somehow connected to the sabotage effort.

    From the story:
    “Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy,”it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.

    “Obama is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account. In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory.”


    “It will be aided in that effort by the Obama Foundation, run by Obama’s former political director, and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, launched last month by Obama pal Eric Holder to end what he and Obama call GOP “gerrymandering” of congressional districts.

    “Obama will be overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation.”

    Large questions present themselves: What role is Soros is playing in this effort? How closely linked is the Muslim Brotherhood to the OFA? (We remember that Obama had Muslim Brotherhood appointees in several critical positions– Homeland Security, e.g.) How closely connected to the OFA are Democrats like Schumer and Pelosi or the Socialist Democrats in Congress?

    And many, many more questions.

    1. I don’t think Barry can muster much of a threat to this administration.
      Oh he’ll try but there are enough people that are relieved that he is out of power, plus, once the country is showing signs of recovery, many will embrace the new and discard the old.

      Some people dismiss twitter, but you can get a real taste of how the country is trending.

      The last eight years have done one thing good,…the people found their voice and used it.

    2. Marcus and AFVeT, I read this too. Incredible isn´t it ? This tool, Obama, just goes on and on. But Obama has many secrets on a personal level, I am sure. Why not expose them, one after the other, to make him stop his plotting and scheming?

        1. Mark my words – Peter Thiel has dirt on Obama. Just look at what his company Palantir does for the DoD and intelligence services. That’s exactly why Trump got Thiel onboard.

  3. Overheard two ladies this morning at the gym trashing the way the First Lady was dressed today…saying how undignified she looked, wearing sunglasses, etc. – and how her outfit was inappropriate for hosting a world leader’s spouse. I almost had to laugh…do they really want to go there after the past eight years??

    It’s fun watching the Dems go insane on a daily basis.

    1. Lol, apparently they haven’t spent any time in Delray. The sun’s so bright there sometimes, it hurts your eyes. The long white dress keeps you cool. More people with less considered thought than opened mouth.

      1. The sun is so bright in Florida that tinted windows are just about required for cars.

        And Florida-legal tints would get you life in prison, or something, if you tried to drive the vehicle through Maryland.

    2. MrPibb, I saw the pictures in Daily Mail and Melania looked just lovely in her white dress. She always dresses well, in my opinion, she has good taste. And she smiles a lot more nowadays, maybe she is starting to accept her new role and the mean media that goes with it.She seemed to get along fine with Mrs Abe who seemed to admire Melania. She said that she loves gardening, now that is a great hobby in my opinion, gardeners are most often great people.

    1. Grace, these rioters may very well be connected to Obamas sabotage group “Organizing for Action”, that Marcus writes about above. I hope this is investigated. “Obama organizes riots “, yes, great headlines. Obama is a delusive guy. Slippery, never straight. It is almost impossible to understand that this guy was the president for 8 years. But, he has friends in high places. And people must have been under some evil spell.

      1. Little doubt that they are connected with the Obama Opposition which most probably is connected to Soros. Proving any legal wrong doing on Obama’s side would be difficult as always. That said, anyone with half a brain recognizes that Obama’s government in exile inserting itself into the Trump Presidency is unprecedented for American Presidents to say the least.

        Obama is just a rabble rouser who runs at the first scent of blood as a result of his silver tongue.

  4. Early Sunday MSM News:
    ICE is conducting roundups of some illegal aliens for deportation.
    A “massive” (their word) public protest against anti-LBGTxyz laws preventing men in dresses from using the women’s room whenever they choose.
    1. How sad that a government doing it’s job, following existing law should be a big news story.
    2. The whole push to allow sexually confused people to use whichever public bathroom they want is just crazy. This isn’t a right/left or Dem/Repub issue, but a right to privacy by common consent among most civilized communities.
