While the media obsesses over trivialities:

Trump Advances Keystone and Dakota Pipelines, Fulfilling Pledge

President Donald Trump took steps to advance construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, marking the start of an era with fewer constraints on the oil industry to the chagrin of environmentalists who have bitterly fought the projects.

The moves, among Trump’s first actions since taking office, are a major departure from the Obama administration, which rejected TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone proposal in 2015 and has kept Dakota Access blocked since September. Environmentalists, concerned about climate change and damage to waters, land and Native-American cultural sites, now face an executive branch that’s less sympathetic to their efforts. For the oil industry, it heralds more freedom to expand infrastructure and ease transportation bottlenecks.

“We are going to renegotiate some of the terms,” Trump told reporters today in the Oval Office as he signed the two measures. “We will build our own pipelines we will build our own pipes.”

Foreshadowing Trump’s plans, the president told U.S. auto executives at a White House meeting Tuesday morning: “We’re going to make the process much more simple for the oil companies and everybody else that wants to do business in the United States.”


Trump urges U.S. automakers to make big push for new plants

U.S. President Donald Trump pushed the chief executives of General Motors Co, Ford Motor Co and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV on Tuesday to increase production in the United States and boost American employment.

Trump opened a meeting with GM CEO Mary Barra, Ford CEO Mark Fields and Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne at the White House by saying he wants to see new auto plants built in the United States.

The new Republican president vowed to cut regulations and taxes to make it more attractive for businesses to operate in the United States. He promised frequently during his election campaign to be a job-creating president and stressed that message in his inaugural speech last Friday.

“We have a very big push on to have auto plants and other plants – many other plants,” he told reporters at the start of the meeting with auto executives. “It’s happening.”

The meeting was the latest sign of Trump’s uncommon degree of intervention for a U.S. president into corporate affairs as he has repeatedly pressured automakers and other manufacturers to “buy American and hire American.”

But wait! There’s more!

Trump Announcement Of TPP Withdrawal Met With Applause From Union Leaders

President Donald Trump was applauded by organized labor leaders on Monday after he announced that he had withdrawn the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

A variety of union leaders were invited to participate in a White House meeting to discuss a range of issues, including trade, Reuters reported.

According to the White House, participants included North America’s Building Trades Unions President Sean McGarvey, Laborers’ International Union of North America President Terry O’Sullivan, SMART sheet metal workers’ union President Joseph Sellers, United Brotherhood of Carpenters President Doug McCarron, and Mark McManus, president of the United Association that represents plumbers, pipefitters, welders, and others.

Trump began the meeting by noting his familiarity with organized labor.

“This is a group that I know well, whether personally or just because I’ve hired thousands and thousands and thousands of you,” he began before quickly shifting to business.

“We just officially terminated TPP,” the president said.

The announcement was celebrated with loud applause from the union leaders present. Organized labor has frequently voiced its displeasure with the 12-nation free trade pact forged by the Obama administration.

Trump signed the executive order officially withdrawing the United States from the trade deal of Pacific Rim countries on Monday in the Oval Office.

Last, but not least:

Workers Dismayed by President Trump’s Federal Hiring Freeze

Federal worker Greg Guthrie had held out hope after Donald Trump’s election to president that his professed advocacy for the American worker would extend to the federal workforce, too.

That hope diminished after Trump on Monday issued an executive order implementing a hiring freeze across the federal government, with exceptions only for military, national security or public safety personnel.

So while Guthrie wasn’t shocked to learn Trump had imposed the hiring freeze, he was disappointed.

“I guess there’s a presumption that a lot of people in government are not needed,” Guthrie, an information specialist with the Department of Commerce’s National Technical Information Service in Alexandria, said in a phone interview. “But we’re pretty lean right now, anyway. Now to say that there will be no new, young workers — that’s pretty draconian.”

Draconian? Nobody is even getting laid off. There is no reduction is hours or pay or benefits.

I’m not tired of all this winning yet.

Meanwhile, over at the NYT:

Trump Repeats Lie About Popular Vote in Meeting With Lawmakers

President Trump used his first official meeting with congressional leaders on Monday to falsely claim that millions of unauthorized immigrants had robbed him of a popular vote majority, a return to his obsession with the election’s results even as he seeks support for his legislative agenda.

The claim, which he has made before on Twitter, has been judged untrue by numerous fact-checkers. The new president’s willingness to bring it up at a White House reception in the State Dining Room is an indication that he continues to dwell on the implications of his popular vote loss even after assuming power.

The media has learned nothing.

    The media is seeing their business model collapse. They are now the buggy whip makers. They could adapt but they are too stupid and lazy to do so.

    trump freezes contracts and funds to EPA

    this one is one of my favorites. The EPA started out as a good idea but has turned into a weapon against citizens

  4. helenk3 says:

    so if I decide to rob a federal bank in San Francisco and when the cops come I tell them I am Al Sharpton’s cousin from Syria they can not do anything to me?

    good to know

    • When I lived in SJ in the 80’s people in the Bay Area would react to news like this coming from SF or the People’s Republic of Berkeley the same way – by rolling their eyes and shaking their heads.

      Now the Leftist Looniness has spread thru the whole Bay Area.

      • helenk3 says:

        I think San Francisco is one of the prettiest cities in the country. I lived in Alameda and used to take the ferry across to SF. Remember watching the sun set and sun rise across the bay
        But I will never understand the thinking there. hey are not uneducated but there seems to be a real lack of common sense and street smarts

  5. helenk3 says:

    do the backtrack bunch live in the same universe as the rest of us?

  6. Miranda says:

    I wonder if Trump’s actions will be the impetus to look into regulating or repealing the president’s ability to give executive orders. Of course, when Obama was doing it, the media loved it. I thought it was setting a dangerous precedent and how they would like it when someone from ‘the other side’ was in power.

    I’m a fan of checks and balances, although the supreme court can take action against executive orders.

    • DeniseVB says:

      We had a very dysfunctional government under Obama, with hopes it can only improve under Trump.

    • Constance says:

      The Progressives didn’t worry about Republican executive orders while Obama was in office because remember the Republican party was destroyed and would never rise again. The MSM said so.

      • mcnorman says:

        She’s a jackass. I can’t stand her. People think she is funny. She wrote a book about having an abortion. She likes to take selfies topless. What else do you want to know?

        • helenk3 says:

          nothing. does not seem to be someone I would waste my time on

        • Constance says:

          She had a comedy show when Oxygen TV (women’s content) first started where she did stunts that always ended with her taking off her clothes. Just what women viewers want to see. The channel bombed.

        • lizzy says:

          TMI; that’s why we’ve never heard of her. Famous for being famous. Get someone to interview Melania who will do a great job.

    • taw46 says:

      Yeah, never watched her show. Once again we see the tolerant left, who supposedly support immigrants, making fun of someone speaking English with an accent. Of course if someone on the right did that, they would be fired by now.

    • AFVet says:

      Melania speaks 5 languages.
      Handler is just another insecure twit who can’t hold a candle to the FLOTUS.
      These so called ‘celebrities’ seriously need to get over themselves.
      I’m sure Melania is just devastated that she has been refused.

    • lateblum says:

      I tried to watch her show one time…couldn’t do it. I tried a second time, still couldn’t do it. Tried again a 3rd time years later…never tried again. She kept getting more and more stupid and unwatchable. How anyone with 2 brain cells could waste their time with her is beyond me.

    • jenlyn says:

      Chelsea Handler like Lena Dunham is a talentless woman whose main claim to fame is getting naked and talking about sex while professing to be a progressive feminist. Chelsea Handler hates women is jealous of most women judges women on their looks and represents the very worst that women have to offer. She is another example of women being Their Own Worst Enemy. If malania was any color other than white mishandle would be accused of racism because how dare she judges her on her ability to speak English properly but the fact that Mulaney is white makes her an open Target. If we banned Lena from talking about her vagina and Chelsea from talking and or showing her boobies neither of these women would have a damn thing to offer the idiots that watch them

    • Anthony says:

      That means she can tell Chelsea Handler to fuck off five different ways. “Spierdalaj” should be a good start.

      • Somebody says:

        They the right doesn’t believe in science. The left has a real issue with biology

      • helenk3 says:

        that was a pretty loud thumping my 4 kids made when I carried them. the kicking and punching and getting feet stuck under my ribs, convinced me there was life there. There was none of that with the 3 that I lost. Until I felt that movement and heard the heartbeat, I lived with the fear that I would lose them.
        so these so called experts can go pound sand

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Technology has advanced to the point that many of the arguments for abortion, especially past the first trimester, no longer make sense. All those blue gray areas from just a couple decades ago are being filled in in full 3d color. The pictures in the womb are astounding and the pictures taken in third term look as they are snaps of newborns they are so clear with distinctive faces and expressions that do indeed match up to the pictures of that same baby take after birth.

    • elliesmom says:

      The left thinks people who don’t support abortion on demand are stupid. Whether it’s denying a fetus is a human being or it’s lying about federal dollars being used to support abortion services, we’re supposed to suspend belief just because they say so. I used to think they really believed life didn’t begin until some arbitrary point in a pregnancy, and that there’s some kind of physical wall that keeps federal dollars isolated in PP ledgers from creeping into together when the bills get paid, but now I think they know better. They just think the rest of us are stupid enough to be duped.

      • swanspirit says:

        They point to Europe, as an example, but they are woefully misinformed as usual. There are some very strict restrictions in Europe, depending on the country.

        In Germany, women seeking first-trimester abortions are subject to a mandatory three-day waiting period and a counseling session. Abortions after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy are forbidden except in cases of grave threat to the mother’s physical or mental health. The Netherlands mandates a five-day waiting period between initial consultation and abortion; clinics must provide women with information about abortion alternatives. Abortion is then legal until viability (legally defined as 24 weeks, usually interpreted as 22 weeks). In Belgium, where abortion was illegal until 1990, there’s a six-day waiting period and the woman must claim to be in “a state of distress” before receiving a first-trimester abortion.Many Western European countries have what might seem like odd requirements and exceptions to their abortion laws.

        In Finland (home of the now-famous Finnish baby boxes and other enviable government benefits), abortion is available up to 12 weeks of pregnancy, unless the woman is under 17 years old, in which case she may have an abortion until she’s 20 weeks pregnant. But even for early abortions, women must provide a “social reason” for seeking to terminate her pregnancy, such as poverty, extreme distress, or already having at least four children. While in practice most abortion requests are granted, it still forces women to prove to an authority the validity of their desire not to have a baby. In Denmark, abortion is available on demand up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. Afterward, exceptions are made for cases of rape, threats to the woman’s physical or mental health, risk of fetal defects, and — revealingly — in cases where the woman can demonstrate lack of financial resources to care for a child.

  8. Underwhelmed says:

    The part where you’re all Americans, and therefore have a common identity, seems to somehow elude them …

    • NBD says:

      To be honest, I think we’re past the point where there is a common American identity. The country is so divided at this point that we’re on course for some major trouble. Half the country still salutes the flag and stands for the national anthem, the other half doesn’t give a shit about such things.

      • Underwhelmed says:

        No. I think a lot of people have been shamed/intimidated into not showing their true allegiance. But that tide is turning.

      • John Denney says:

        We Americans hold these Truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these Rights are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
        We unite to defend each person’s Life, Liberty, and Property. Sometimes that requires force of arms, to which we also have a Right. Delegating defense to public servants such as police and military is not a surrender of that Right.
        We prosper by can-do attitude, diligence, continuous learning, and trustworthiness, based in love for our neighbor, as the Lord commanded.
        Being born in the United States makes one a citizen of the United States, but not an American, just as being born in a church does not make one a Christian.

      I looked him up in prior local stories. It was very obvious he had mental issues. He refused to walk on road shoulders but walked on the outer part of the traffic lane. That is where and why he was hit. Why his family and friends didn’t recognise that he was messed up, obsessive, and couldn’t really think straight is very sad.

      • Constance says:

    Hahaha so deplorable:

    “I was at the Inauguration and the best part was Schumer’s speech. The only parts I heard were “My fellow Americans” and “In 1861”. He was booed and shouted down the whole time. It was hilarious.

    “Trump”, “USA”, and “Drain the Swamp” chants were ongoing, as well as gems like “Stick a sock in it”, “You suck” and my favorite “Quit filibustering the inauguration.” We even started singing God Bless America at one point.

    You could see it getting to him on the screen. He started fumbling his words and it looked like his hands were shaking when he turned the pages. Trump had a big smirk on his face and even started laughing at one point.”

    • DeniseVB says:

      Yes, that’s when I passed through that Monument checkpoint, thousands not shown on msm teevee. The crowd was boo’ing Schumer, I knew I was at home 🙂 Soon followed by the Oath, crowd turned to cheers of hope again, I was definitely home. Then Jackie sang the National Anthem, we all turned to the flags at the base of the monument and sang along with her. Whoa, tears down the cheek moment. I wasn’t the only one 😉
