REPORT: Team Trump Set To Slash Federal Budget – Give Money Back To The People

Donald Trump has been, and remains, a businessman. Winning the presidency will not change that.

And so, with that in mind, it should come as no surprise to his supporters and detractors alike that Team Trump is working feverishly on soon slashing the bloated and deficit-belching federal budget, cutting taxes, and giving more of the American peoples’ money back to them.

Via THE HILL:

“Donald Trump is ready to take an ax to government spending.

Staffers for the Trump transition team have been meeting with career staff at the White House ahead of Friday’s presidential inauguration to outline their plans for shrinking the federal bureaucracy, The Hill has learned.

…The changes they propose are dramatic…Overall, the blueprint being used by Trump’s team would reduce federal spending by $10.5 trillion over 10 years.

The proposed cuts hew closely to a blueprint published last year by the conservative Heritage Foundation, a think tank that has helped staff the Trump transition.”

——————

Team Trump will no doubt face significant opposition to the administration’s planned cuts as they are a direct threat to the entrenched Establishment feeding trough that has long benefited both parties. As president, Trump will no doubt attempt to combat that opposition with sweeping tax cuts designed to create millions of jobs and direct more money back to the American taxpayer, making opposition to his economic reforms a potentially risky proposition for legislators facing 2018 Midterm Elections and fearing millions of Republican Trump voters who will be more than happy to hold them accountable.

The battle for America is on – and Donald Trump has already come out swinging.

BREAKING: Dreamgirls Singer Backs Out Of Trump Inauguration After Family Threatened

Dreamgirls singer, Jennifer Holliday, abruptly backed out last Saturday from an already-agreed to performance at the Trump Inauguration ceremony. Initially, it was reported she did so due to “backlash” from her many LGBT fans.

Now it is being reported both she and her family were actually receiving death threats.

Via TMZ :

“Jennifer Holliday pulled the plug on her inauguration performance because people threatened to kill her and her family … TMZ has learned.

…We don’t know if the people who made the threats identified themselves or any group with which they were affiliated.

A rep for the singer tells us her primary concern was the safety of her family.”

Just more love from the “tolerant” left?

Interesting how people of color are attacked so viciously when they choose to try and think for themselves. There’s a term for that:


 

Kelly Who? New Tucker Carlson Show Rocks Ratings – 27% MORE Viewers Than Megyn Kelly

The people have spoken – loud and clear.

The new Tucker Carlson show on Fox News, which replaced the now-departed Megyn Kelly, is a ratings MONSTER, thumping Kelly’s previous ratings by 27%!!!

Via GATEWAY PUNDIT:

“Fox News’ Tucker Carlson got off to a roaring start in his primetime debut Monday night by easily outdistancing both MSNBC and CNN, proving at least for now that the decision to slide him into Megyn Kelly’s old timeslot was an excellent one.

Carlson averaged 493,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demo, beating out CNN’s town hall special with Bernie Sanders (414,000) and The Rachel Maddow Show (324,000).

Overall, Tucker Carlson Tonight averaged 2.699 million total viewers, nearly beating the combined total of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (1.369 million) and CNN’s town hall special (1.357 million).

Compared to Kelly’s numbers on the same day last year, Carlson was up 27 percent in total viewers and a whopping 45 percent in the key 25-54 demographic, showing that Fox News may not wind up missing Kelly as much as everyone thought.”

—————–

It cannot be ignored that Mr. Carlson takes a far more fair and balanced approach to the Donald Trump phenomena than Megyn Kelly, who appeared to want to elevate her own career last year by being the Fox personality who would attempt to derail the then-charging Trump political train.

The end result? Donald Trump is entering the White House this week as POTUS, and Megyn Kelly’s replacement is already pummeling her (and the CNN/MSNBC competition) in the ratings.

WINNING.

This sounds like a man who was receiving a serious amount of negative incoming once the story broke earlier this week of his intent to sing an updated version of his hit song made famous by Frank Sinatra, MY WAY. It appears the “tolerant” left was successful in snapping the choke collar on yet another one of their own:

COOL! Paul Anka To Sing “MY WAY” At Trump Inauguration

The longtime crooner is said to be reworking the song’s lyrics to fit the occasion of Trump’s ascent into the White House.

(SEE UPDATE BELOW)

Via RADAR ONLINE:

“President Donald Trump did it his way — and Paul Anka will let him know it!

A source close to the “(You’re) Having My Baby” crooner, 75, told Radar exclusively that he will buck the trend of most singers and perform his song “My Way” at the Inauguration January 20. . .with lyrics re-written for the incoming Commander-In-Chief!

‘Paul was asked by the members of the Trump inauguration committee and he was only too happy to do it for his longtime friend,’ said an Anka insider.”

Until then, let’s enjoy this rendition of that same song from another pretty famous guy who, like Trump, was known for speaking his mind and doing things a certain way – namely his own:

NICE! Actress Nicole Kidman Says She Supports President-Elect Donald Trump (VIDEO)

The beautiful dual citizen (born in Hawaii but raised in Australia) actress indicated during an interview that it’s time all Americans to support their new president. Kidman’s comments were in direct contrast to fellow Oscar-winning actress, Meryl Streep, whose now-infamous recent Golden Globes speech implored members of Congress to continue fighting against the soon-to-be President Trump. Streep also went on to mock Middle Class America’s love of sports such as football and MMA fighting, which she derided as lacking “true art.”

Kidman is married to longtime Country Music superstar (and fellow Aussie), Keith Urban and lives with Urban and their two children, in Nashville Tennessee. Country Music stars were an entertainment demographic that indicated far more support for Donald Trump during the election than those actors and musicians who exist in the far-left liberal-land of New York and Hollywood.

China Ignores Obama In Favor Of Direct U.S. Job Creation Discussions W/Trump

Though little reported by an always-Obama-supporting Mainstream Media here in America, it is well known throughout international circles the Chinese government and that nation’s top business powers, have long considered Barack Obama to be an utterly weak and self-involved caricature of a U.S. president.

That fact was never made more clear via a visit this week by Chinese billionaire and Alibaba CEO Jack Ma during his visit to meet privately with Donald Trump in Trump Tower. It was a dismissive backhand delivered across the face of outgoing President Obama, and further evidence of how world leaders are far more attentive to the potential America-first determination they now see in President-Elect Trump.

And know this – when Jack Ma journeys to Trump Tower, he does so on behalf of not just his own company’s business interests, but those of the entirety of the Chinese government, for in communist China, it is the government that has the final say in all things.

Ma had a job to do in his meeting with the soon to be new U.S. President, and that job was to assure Donald Trump China would be far more willing to deal with issues of unfair trade and business development than it ever was during the far weaker version of America that was the hallmark of the Obama regime.

In fact, the primary headline coming out of the Trump-Ma meeting was China’s promise of developing ONE MILLION NEW JOBS in America, for Americans. Trump in turn now has this meeting with Ma, and its promise of massive expansion of Alibaba inside the United States, as a powerful leveraging tool in future job-creating negotiations with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

Trump made clear on the campaign trail his concerns over Amazon’s long-standing tax shelter machinations, as well as Mr. Trump’s dislike of the Bezos-owned Washington Post which was strongly pro-Hillary Clinton, and has been for years perhaps Barack Obama’s most consistently supportive member of the Mainstream Media. The Obama administration is said to have in turn created a very favorable business environment for Amazon while at the very same time, used federal SEC investigators to go after Amazon’s #1 competitor – Jack Ma’s Alibaba. 

So, from that perspective, Trump’s meeting with Ma is very much a multiple birds with a single stone political scenario. It confirms what many have already stated, namely that world leaders are already looking to Donald Trump as the man in charge in the United States, a move to create a significant number of jobs for American workers, as well as a powerful shot across the bow of the longtime anti-Trump, Jeff Bezos.

It is the Art of the Deal on full display by the man who gave life to that very phrase.

Adviser: Donald Trump Already Has “Huge Stack” of Executive Orders Ready To Destroy Obama’s Legacy

It appears turn around is going to be fair play come January 20th when Donald Trump is sworn in as this nation’s next president. Barack Obama infamously said he would use his “pen and phone” to enact multiple and far-reaching executive orders as a means of bypassing Congressional approval.

And so, Donald Trump is apparently very much looking forward to doing the very same thing as he moves to wipe out much, if not all, of those Obama executive orders with a several of his own that have already been prepared for the President-Elect.

ABOVE: Stephen Moore informed Fox Business today that President-Elect Trump already has a “huge stack” of executive orders awaiting Mr. Trump’s signature soon after he takes the Oath of Office.

Watch Kellyanne Conway Decimate MSNBC Crew on Impending Death of Obamacare

What a brilliant, strong-willed voice for conservatism in America. Kellyanne Conway walks into the MSNBC lions den and proceeds to decimate their collective attacks against her and Team Trump. Note how at the 7:50 mark how the MSNBC panelist makes clear how impressed he is by Conway’s ability to verbally counter-punch their decidedly twisted version of recent political history.

She is woman. Hear her roar…

WOW: VP-Elect Mike Pence: “Obamacare Has Failed.”

VP-Elect Mike Pence didn’t mince words when he just stepped before the media after a meeting with Congressional leaders and declared, “Obamacare has failed and that the Trump administration’s first order of business will be to deal with that failure.

Mr. Pence went on to outline plans to “repeal and replace” Barack Obama’s namesake legislation, a move that would be a stunning blow to the outgoing president’s legacy.

GTY 630952434 A POL USA DC

Pence met with Republican lawmakers just minutes after President Obama did the same on the Democrat side. Mr. Obama is desperate to convince Democrats to do everything they can to keep Obamacare intact, despite recent polling that shows the healthcare law remains unpopular with a majority of the American people as health-plan costs skyrocket and choices continue to be eliminated.

Pence reaffirmed President-Elect Trump’s promise to “repeal and replace” Obamacare with what Mr. Pence called “market based” solutions that would allow people more choice, lower costs, and superior healthcare plans.

Here is video of some of Mr. Pence’s words on the subject today. Keep in mind, he spoke to the media just minutes after Barack Obama had left Congress, making it a particularly stinging rebuke of the president’s failed landmark legislation:

Republican Leaders Quickly Back Down After Trump Rips Them A New One

As reported here earlier today, Republican leaders didn’t want the Office of Congressional Ethics to have the power to independently investigate potential wrongdoing by members of Congress. Democrats and the liberal media seized on efforts by Republicans to neuter the OCE’s powers, all of which caused President-Elect Donald Trump to openly scold Republicans for worrying too much about protecting their own back ends, and not worrying enough about fighting for the American people:

Within hours of those Trump tweets, Republicans signaled they would comply with the President-Elect’s demand they focus on far more important matters:

When it comes to getting things done, both Republicans and Democrats would do well to learn that Donald Trump has little patience for typical D.C. political elite messing about.

The guy means business.

Trump Rightfully Rips Clueless Republican Leaders Following Weakening Of Ethics Board Powers

Republican leaders, happy to now have control of both houses of Congress, (thanks to voter support for Donald Trump) did something so politically stupid it evoked an immediate reaction from the President-Elect, who called them out for their lack of political perspective. The genesis of the Trump rebuke came in the form of a proposed reform of the Office of Congressional Ethics by Republicans, weakening the office to the point investigations would now be conducted “in-house” and under nearly full control by members of Congress.

Mr. Trump was none too pleased with the effort:

The clueless duo of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan have yet to formally respond to the President-Elect’s demands that Congress focus fully on far more important issues than those related to protecting the cash-corruption money machine that has long infested this nation’s legislative body. It is a glimpse into how Mr. Trump intends to govern as a president of the people first, not of a political party.

If members of Congress misbehave, be they Republican or Democrat, this president will call them out publicly for their misdeeds. The entirety of the Political Establishment in America now lives in fear of what a Donald Trump presidency will bring – namely America-first policies that favor the American people, and not the political elite.

Black Marching Band Ignores Race-Baiting Critics – WILL Participate In Trump Inauguration

Talladega College is Alabama’s oldest, and predominantly black liberal arts college. News is now breaking that it has received, and accepted, an invitation to perform at Donald Trump’s upcoming presidential inauguration later this month, much to the dismay of race-baiting activists across the nation now panicked at the prospect of a Trump administration doing more for black communities over the next four years than Democrats have done over many decades.

The President-Elect’s enemies continue to perpetrate the lie that Mr. Trump is somehow anti-black. The truth is far different of course, as Mr. Trump was among the only political voices on the national stage who repeatedly demanded things must change in this nation’s minority communities as the old ways of doing things have left generations behind, causing the loss of jobs, the breakup of families, and an overall decline in both hope and prosperity for millions.

It was a message that resonated with minority voters, leading to Trump garnering far more support among black and Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did in 2012. If Mr. Trump is able to deliver on his promise to revitalize minority communities, the longtime race-baiting status quo in America fears a disruption in their “divide and conquer” political platform that was so essential to Barack Obama’s election and re-election efforts in 2008 and 2012.

Kudos to Talladega College for breaking free of the plantation politics that demand subservience to the Democrat Party.

Donald Trump certainly represents something different.

All Americans, including minorities, would do well to give him a chance to prove it’s also something BETTER.

Trump Urges Israel To Hold On & That Help Is On Its Way

Like a presidential superhero, Donald Trump let Israel know he’s got their back in a series of morning tweets that decimate the still-ongoing anti-Israel bent of communications coming out of the Obama administration of late, including one already infamous example that had John Kerry declaring Israel must stop acting so Jewish!

And a grateful Israel was quick to respond to the President-Elect:

And in typical Trump fashion, given the millions of social media followers the soon-to-be POTUS enjoys, his tweets have already been seen by far more people than will ever watch the collective hand-wringing, pro-Obama reports of the Mainstream Media on the subject of Israel, even as reports of an increasingly petulant Obama White House unhappy about Mr. Trump already assuming far more influence on U.S. policy than the outgoing president, continue to circulate.

Trump Pledges To Continue Speaking Directly To American People – To Hell With Mainstream Media

The long-entrenched establishment powers that be, don’t much care for Donald Trump’s remarkably effective use of social media to bypass the Mainstream Media filter and communicate directly to the American people. And so, a campaign was initiated to create pressure to have the President-Elect agree his Twitter and related social media accounts would not be utilized once he enters the White House.

It appears Mr. Trump will once again ignore the requests of his political enemies, and continue doing what he thinks is best for America, namely talking above, and through, those who would much rather keep him silent.

With some 39 MILLION combined followers, Donald Trump can at any moment, create a message many times over more powerful than MSNBC, CNN, ABC, or any of the other established media outlets. It was this ability that propelled Mr. Trump to the forefront of a then-crowded GOP field, allowed him to survive attack after attack, and ultimately, win the White House.

And it has his globalist-enemies increasingly concerned.

This week, incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer signaled that as president, Donald Trump will continue to utilize that direct-to-the-people outreach as he will no doubt be battling a barrage of anti-Trump media spin throughout his presidency:

“I think that his use of social media in particular … is gonna be something that’s never been seen before,” Spicer told Rhode Island news station WPRI in an interview published Monday. “He has this direct pipeline in the American people, where he can talk back and forth…I mean, he does communicate in a much bigger way than there’s ever been before, and I think that’s gonna be just a really exciting part of the job.”

And combating media bias isn’t the only use Trump will have for his social media army of devoted supporters, as indicated by Congressman Tom Cole:

“I don’t think people are used to having a president that can reach into their districts the way that I think Donald Trump can…I mean, he’s very popular with the Republican base. And a guy that can sit there and tweet out of the White House and generate several thousand calls to your office is somebody you ought to take pretty seriously, because I suspect he’s gonna be very serious about pushing his agenda.”

Thanks To Harry Reid, Team Trump Set To Appoint 100 Federal Judges ASAP

Back in 2013 when still the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid defended his use of a highly controversial simple majority “nuclear option” to grant Barack Obama quick and easy federal judge appointments.

Well, as they say, turnaround is now fair play.

Adding insult to Reid’s injury is the fact that Trump has more than 100 judge vacancies now waiting to be filled by the same simple majority Senate rule Reid so aggressively advocated for in past years – a far greater number than what Barack Obama was working with.

In short, Harry Reid is largely responsible for Donald Trump now having the opportunity to greatly influence the entirety of the federal court system with a selection of judges that will likely tip the judicial balance in America for years to come – and he will do so using the same rules Democrats created against them.

And that doesn’t even include the Supreme Court!

In the world of Donald Trump and his millions of supporters, that’s simply called WINNING.

With Age of Obama Ending, Americans’ Economic Confidence Soars

Barack Obama is on his way out of the White House, and if the recent Consumer Confidence numbers are to be believed, Americans are very-very happy to see him go…

Americas are at this moment more confident of the near-future of the U.S. economy than they have been in more than fifteen years – as if they feel for the first time in a very long time, that the Obama-Bush years will be, once and for all, put into the nation’s collective rearview mirror.

The primary reason for this record-setting rise in confidence is focused on one man, and a country’s belief that he will deliver on his promises of a new age of economic prosperity in America:

DONALD TRUMP.

“American households are expecting a Donald Trump administration to deliver. They are more upbeat about the prospects for the economy, labor market and their incomes, according to the Conference Board’s report.”

That’s the assessment from a just-published Bloomberg report.

Now it’s up to Mr. Trump to deliver on those promises, and Congress to allow him a chance to do so. After so many years of tepid job growth, stagnant wages, and millions who have given up trying to find work, this country sorely needs some better days ahead.

Barack Obama Condemned For Anti-Jewish Machinations

Since entering the White House, Barack Obama has made clear his disdain for Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and any Jew who opposes Mr. Obama’s pro-Islamic world policies, such as the insane Iran nuclear deal of last year that is a direct and imminent threat to the safety and security of the Israeli people.

This past week, that disdain was once again on full display as Mr. Obama sided with the terrorist-run state of Palestine at the United Nations against both Jewish and Christian interests in the disputed lands of the West Bank.

Via Gateway Pundit:

“President Obama and Secretary Kerry are behind this shameful move against Israel at the U.N.,” the official said. “The U.S administration secretly cooked up with the Palestinians an extreme anti-Israeli resolution behind Israel’s back which would be a tail wind for terror and boycotts and effectively make the Western Wall occupied Palestinian territory,” he said calling it “an abandonment of Israel which breaks decades of US policy of protecting Israel at the UN.”

The resolution would allow an Islamic-terrorist state to officially condemn at the United Nations, the state of Israel. For years similar such attempts were blocked by the United States – until now.

Never before in the history of America has a U.S. President been so willing to support terrorist organizations that have long called for and celebrated the elimination of both Israel and the Western World.

And then came the Obama presidency, which has ushered in eight years of apologizing for American democracy, military power, and economic freedoms while simultaneously advocating for Islamic societies that subjugate women, minorities, and homosexuals as second-class or even sub-human, worthy of nothing more than condemnation, imprisonment, and even death.

The Israeli government is said to have already reached out to the incoming Trump administration for assistance on the recent U.N. resolution matter, and Mr. Trump himself has personally indicated that once he assumes office, the relationship between the United States and the United Nations will be vastly different, indicating the U.N. needs America far more than America needs the U.N.

It is a gesture being celebrated by the Jewish people everywhere, as they feel Israel will once again have an ally occupying the White House.
