Will Trump follow through with his promises?

I sure hope so, and so far it looks damn good (and I will laugh my ass off if the wall actually goes up)...


On his transition website GreatAgain.gov, the Trump team has laid out the framework of his initial policies with policies focused i) on American Security including as Defense and National security, Immigration Reform and Building That Wall, and Energy Independence; ii) Getting America Back to Work Again including Tax Reform; Regulatory Reform; Trade Reform; Education; Transportation & Infrastructure and Financial Services Reform; and iii) Government for the people including Healthcare Reform (Obamacare), Veterans Administration Reform and Protecting Americans' Constitutional Rights.

Couple highlights:

Overhaul in immigration policies, including "Building that Wall" , the Trump transition team will "execute on the following ten-point plan to restore integrity to our immigration system, protect our communities, and put America first" - i) Build a Wall on the Southern Border; ii) End Catch-and-Release; iii) Zero Tolerance for Criminal Aliens; iv) Block Funding for Sanctuary Cities; v) Cancel Unconstitutional Executive Orders & Enforce All Immigration Laws; vi) Suspend the Issuance of Visas to Any Place Where Adequate Screening Cannot Occur; vii) Ensure that Other Countries Take Their People Back When We Order Them Deported; viii) Finally Complete the Biometric Entry-Exit Visa Tracking System; ix) Turn Off the Jobs and Benefits Magnet

"Repeal Obamacare" - the Trump administration will work with Congress to repeal Affordable Care Act with replacement that "returns the historic role in regulating health insurance to the states," according to transition plan released Thursday. Replacement would include promotion of Health Savings Accounts and option to buy insurance across states lines. The transition team also says it will act to “protect innocent human life from conception to natural death, including the most defenseless and those Americans with disabilities” and "modernize Medicare, so that it will be ready for the challenges with the coming retirement of the Baby Boom generation – and beyond."

Protect Americans' constitutional rights: the Trump administration will veto legislation that exceeds Congressional authority, take actions as Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief that are consistent with his constitutional role, and nominate Judges and Supreme Court Justices who are committed to interpreting the Constitution and laws according to their original public meaning. Trump says "he will defend Americans' fundamental rights to free speech, religious liberty, keeping and bearing arms, and all other rights guaranteed to them in the Bill of Rights and other constitutional provisions." He hopes to minimize the role of government including the "Tenth Amendment guarantee that many areas of governance are left to the people and the States, and are not the role of the federal government to fulfill."

I know how Trump can make the market go up and add $100-200B (and more again by mid 2018) to the treasury to fix infrastructure and get started on the Wall in one fell swoop, and there's no chance it won't pass Congress.

Temporary suspension of Corporate Tax for repatriated money from overseas - for a limited time only - subject to a 5-10% Flat Repatriation Tax.

More next year comes when people pay taxes on the dividends.

Trump needs to do three things in his first two years:

1. Appoint a center/center-right justice who is Gung Ho on Guns. Guns is a shitty issue for the Democrats, especially in swing states. It almost never helps them win election, and only hurts them. If the Dems were smart, they'd drop Gun Control from their platform entirely and leave it up to the candidates.
1b. Start going after states with unconstitutional gun laws and bring them to court.

2. Get rid of Obamacare, keep the existing condition mandate, but breakdown all state health care boundaries ( Interstate Commerce Clause? ).

3. Get a new NAFTA going.

He already killed TPP. Had Hillary been elected, even if she brought no new democrats seats with her, it was a done deal.

If trump were smart, he'd tell them that he won't sign their pet projects (tax cuts, ocare removal) until they draft legislation that he wants too.

My friend asked me last night about the wall.

I said well would you rather we go into Mexico and tell the government they need clean house. And we go in and exterminate every Cartel and Cartel thug in the country?
Because it can't stay the way things are now. Either we go in and clean up Mexico or we wall off the Zombie Oyes. He went with the wall.

Trent Lott and his cadre of lobbyists are already gearing up to "assist" the Trump transition team in all appropriate areas.

For those that were hoping that Trump would do anything against the corruption and lobbyists filth in Washington, it's already clear they lost that bet.

It will be a fully owned subsidiary of corporations. Lobbyists will write the laws of this country for the next 2yrs.

Nothing will pass against immigration or trade unless he finds a way to beat these guys.

True - although, he's done a pretty good job of taking down:

The Bush's, The Clintons and the Obama's.... Cruz, Kasich, Christie,

Not to mention the media.

I've got a little more confidence in his ability to get shit done than the rest of the bozo's we've had in office for the last 20 years.

Hell, we don't even need a wall - just take away all the entitlement programs and the leeches will go home.

You don't even need to remove the entitlement program.

Just arrest and seize the assets of some of the illegal hiring contractors and LA sweatshops here and there. They'll be to afraid to hire illegals, and they'll self deport.
