Enjoy the Inauguration; Then It’s Back to Work to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

Enjoy the inauguration.  Many dedicated Patriots worked very hard to make this day possible.  Then it’s back to work to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.  

We have a chance to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain and we may not get another chance.

The easiest part of making America great again was Donald Trump getting the nomination.  The second easiest or second hardest part was winning the election, and that was close.  The third and most difficult part of making America great again is doing so over the determined, fanatical opposition of the Dem Party, major elements of the Rep Party, the MSM, many big corporations, labor unions, most of the foundations, universities, the bureaucracy, many foreign governments, basically the entire globalist “Party of Davos.”

Donald Trump cannot #MakeAmericaGreatAgain alone.  He needs the help of all American Patriots.  But if we can show progress to most Americans, of all races and ethnicities, we can create a major political realignment and not only a greater, stronger, freer and more prosperous America, but also a long-term political majority for keeping America great, strong, free and prosperous.

As always, “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.” Justice Louis D. Brandeis

If you don’t have plans for celebrating #DonaldTrump’s inauguration, there are two great events in Riverside.  You can contact me at Greg@RedlandsTeaParty.net for more info.

Happy New Year Patriots

HAPPY NEW YEAR PATRIOTS

We dodged a bullet and won a great victory, but the war is far from over.  All of the interest groups and people that were trying to tear down or “fundamentally transform” America are still trying to do so. We have the opportunity to #MakeAmericanGreatAgain but we are in a long war, and we need to work as hard in 2017 and beyond as in 2016. 

#DonaldTrump alone cannot #MakeAmericaGreatAgain any more than General Patton or General Eisenhower won WWII.  Leadership is important, but only the American people can #MakeAmericaGreatAgain and keep her great.  As Justice Louis D. Brandeis said: “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.”

We may not get another opportunity to save our country so we need to make this one work.  However, if we succeed in improving the lives of the working men and women of America, of all races and ethnicities, we could have another major political realignment in America and preserve what Lincoln and Reagan called the “last best hope” for mankind.

To Make America Great Again, the Reps Have to Get Rid of the Filibuster

To Make America Great Again, the Reps Have to Get Rid of the Filibuster published on


To Make America Great Again, the Reps Have to Get Rid of the Filibuster

Thanks to God, Donald Trump, his campaign team, dedicated activists around the country, the voters, and the Dems nominating Hillary Clinton, we have the opportunity to Make America Great Again.  We may not get another opportunity.  [By “we” I mean Donald Trump and the movement of millions dedicated American patriots who made him president.]  Yet there has been remarkably little discussion of how the filibuster will affect Donald Trump’s agenda.

Under the filibuster rule as last modified by the Dems in November 2013, legislation and Supreme Court nominations require 60 votes in the Senate.  The Reps only have 52, and that assumes they all side with Donald Trump.  Donald Trump might pick up some Dem Senate votes from states Donald Trump won by a wide margin where the Dem Senators are up for reelection in 2018.  However, getting to 60 will be very difficult if not impossible.  The Dems have shown near lock step unity both when they are in the majority and when they are in the minority.

Since Donald Trump’s election, the Dems have shown they intend fanatical, fight for every inch opposition.  This will especially be so on immigration, the global warming hoax, and control of the American healthcare system, which are key to the Democrat party’s political interests.  Furthermore, vested economic interests such as green crony capitalists will join with the Dems to keep Donald Trump from making significant changes.  The alligators living very comfortably in the swamp in Washington DC do not want it drained.

We cannot “reconcile” our differences

The Reps can pass one “reconciliation bill” each year by majority vote not subject to filibuster, but it has to relate to taxing and spending.  The Reps cannot repeal all of Obamacare with reconciliation, and they cannot pass a replacement law with only reconciliation.  That they cannot pass a replacement, will make Rep Senators, most of whom are hardly profiles in courage, afraid to repeal Obamacare and assume responsibility for the outcome.

Similarly, with only a reconciliation bill, the Reps cannot repeal or modify Dodd-Frank which is inhibiting small business lending and concentrating power in the federal government, or make any improvements to immigration law. 

Keeping Donald Trump’s promises and  making America great again will require passing and repealing legislation, but with the filibuster, the only the only legislation we can pass is legislation Chuck Schumer and the Senate Dems support.  That’s not what we voted and worked so hard for, and that will not make America great again.

Furthermore, given the importance of the Supreme Court, we have to anticipate the Dems will filibuster any good, i.e. Scalia like, Supreme Court nominations, in which case the only Supreme Court justices confirmed will be those Chuck Schumer and the Senate Dems approve.  At best they will be wishy-washy moderate Reps who will drift to the left once confirmed.

This may be what the establishment wants

Mitch McConnell and the Senate Establishment Reps plan to keep the filibuster rule as the Dems last modified it.  Mitch McConnell has even kept Harry Reid’s parliamentarian, who determines whether a provision can be included in a reconciliation bill, even though the parliamentarian serves at the pleasure of the Senate majority leader.   [Why would Mitch McConnell do that?]

At this point, the Establishment Reps may not want to openly oppose Donald Trump.  By keeping the filibuster rule as is, the Senate Dems can stop a much of Donald Trump’s agenda, and Establishment Reps can report “sorry Mr. President, we did our best, but those dang Democrats blocked us again.  We’ll just have to give in to what the Dems want again.  Ah shucks.”

Imagine what we can a without the filibuster rule

We can repeal all of Obamacare and craft a replacement based on what we think will work best.

We can modify immigration laws to stop illegal immigration and modify legal immigration to serve the interests of American workers and taxpayers.

We can build the wall without years of preparing environmental impact reports and years of follow-on litigation.

We can repeal all Obama regulations we want to get rid of without years of rulemaking procedures and follow-on litigation in courts packed with Obama judges.

We can develop American energy without years of litigation in courts packed with Obama judges. 

We can change Federal law to allow for school choice.

We can repeal or amend Dodd-Frank.

We can modify civil service rules to make the federal bureaucracy more efficient and accountable.

While there is only one reconciliation bill allowed each year, without the filibuster, the Donald Trump and the Rep Congress can tweak and modify programs and laws when and as needed.

And these are just some examples that come to mind.

But what if the Dems control the Senate, or heaven forbid, the Senate, House and the Presidency?

The Dems will change the filibuster rule however and whenever they believe is in their political interest.  The Dems showed this in November 2013 when they changed the Senate filibuster rule by violating Senate rules, the so-called “nuclear option.”

Harry Reid said before the election when he expected Hillary Clinton would win and the Dems would control the Senate, if the Reps continue using the filibuster, the Senate “will evolve with a majority vote determining stuff. It is going to happen.”

If the Dems ever control the Senate, House and Presidency, they will abolish the filibuster rule and run the table with their entire agenda.  Keeping the filibuster rule only hinders our side and offers zero protection against the Dems.

Options:

1st.  Keep the filibuster rule as is and use Harry Reid’s “nuclear option,” violate the Senate rules to modify the Senate rules to eliminate or further modify the filibuster if and when that is deemed necessary.

That is dishonest government.  It is also months or years down the road, and Donald Trump will lose momentum in making dramatic changes in the federal government and draining the swamp. 

2nd.  When the Senate adopts rules when it convenes in January, include a provision that the rules can be amended by majority vote.  This is better than the 1st option because it is more honest, but has the same problems of dissipating Donald Trump’s momentum.

3rd.  Be honest with ourselves and the country and recognize making America great again will require adopting and repealing legislation, and to do this, requires eliminating the filibuster.  A new president is most effective at the outset of his first term.  This will allow Donald Trump to keep his promises and implement his agenda. 

The voters will hold Donald Trump and the Reps accountable for the results over the next two and four years, whether or not the Senate Dems are allowed to block Donald Trump’s agenda.  Therefore, let’s implement Donald Trump’s agenda to make America great again and be judged on the results.  We may not get another chance.  We have to make this one work, and if we do, 2016 may be a major realignment election ushering in a new era of peace, prosperity and freedom under conservative government.

“Les Deplorables” Calling for Victory

“LES DEPLORABLES” CALLING FOR VICTORY

Phone banking parties for Donald Trump, Mike Morrell, Marc Steinorth and Paul Chabot

Saturday, October 8, 9:30a-12:30p
Tuesday, October 11, 5:30p-8:30p

Senator Mike Morrell’s Campaign Office
1901 Orange Tree Lane, Suite 220, Redlands, CA 92374
[Mike will supply the food]

We ask you to call 50% of the time for Donald Trump to swing states and 50% of the time for Mike Morrell, Marc Steinorth and Paul Chabot.  However, you can allocate your time however you want.

The “Calling for Victory” program and Redlands Tea Party Patriots’ canvassing program allow us to help Donald Trump and Mike Morrell, Marc Steinorth and Paul Chabot at the same time.

Come for as much of the time as you can, 30 minutes, 1 hr., 2 hrs, or 3 hrs.

BYOP [Bring Your Own Phone] and preferably, but not necessarily, a laptop computer or iPad/tablet.

If possible register with Trump Talk [for Tuesday] and with Tea Party Patriots [for Saturday] before arriving so we can spend more time calling.

With sufficient interest, we will do this every Tuesday and Saturday through the election.  

So many have given so much for our country.  Are we too busy to spend a few hours calling voters?  Is America is worth the effort? 

******************************
Dennis Prager explained the stakes in this election:

–“Therefore, with another four years of Democrat-left rule — meaning a nearly permanent left-wing Supreme Court and left-wing-controlled lower courts; the further erosion of federalism; an exponential growth in the power of the federal government; further leftist control of education; and the de-Americanization of America in part by effectively eliminating its borders, in part by substituting multiculturalism for American identity and in part by giving millions of illegal immigrants citizenship — America will not be America.”

All Patriots must do whatever they can to prevent this calamity.  We must also focus our efforts on the races and methods most likely to result in victory.

One of the ways we can help win the election and save America, is to get out the vote by canvassing and calling voters.  [John Berry is leading Redlands Tea Party Patriots’ very successful canvassing program.]

We starting a phone banking program for Donald Trump and local candidates, Mike Morrell, Marc Steinorth and Paul Chabot.  Their districts overlap so we can call for all three in the same calls.

Mike Morrell, Marc Steinorth and Paul Chabot are three good conservatives and three races where we can make a difference. 

******************************
Calling For Donald Trump

Since California is beyond Donald Trump’s reach, we will call competitive swing states.  There are three ways to do so.

–Trump Talk [to Arizona]
https://talk.donaldjtrump.com/       https://talk.donaldjtrump.com/Tutorial/Videos

–Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund [to Pennsylvania]
https://www.teapartypatriotscitizensfund.com/marchtovictoryvolunteer/

–Tea Party for Trump [to Ohio]
http://teapartyfortrump.org/

Once you register, their websites link your phone with the voter to be called.  They give you script and you enter the info on the website.  The persons called do not get your telephone number.

It works better if you have a computer (or iPad/tablet) and your phone, but you can log on to the website through the browser on your smart phone.

I tried Trump Talk and the Tea Party Patriots program.  The systems work well. 

We can call from home or office, and we ask everyone to devote at least 15 minutes every day to the cause.

In addition, we offer calling parties on the dates above.  It will be more fun to call with fellow Patriots.  If you have any problems registering or learning how to use the system, we can help.  Having attended one of our calling parties, we hope you will be more confident and comfortable calling on your own.

Because of the time difference [3 hours to the east coast], we will use Trump Talk to call Arizona on Tuesday evening and Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund to call Pennsylvania on Saturday.

******************************
Calling for Mike Morrell, Marc Steinorth and Paul Chabot.

We will have scripts and phone lists of voters in are in all three candidates’ districts so with one call, we can call for all three.  I believe we will have phone lists for you to take home and call too.

We all talk about how important this election is for the future of the country we love.  Here is an opportunity to do something about it. 

What are we willing to DO for America?  

Join us in the cause to Make America Great Again.

Stump for Trump was a YUUGE success!!! [see the pics]

Supporters of Donald Trump who want to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain filled Mill Creek Cattle Co. on May 24.  Great speakers including Paul Chabot and Tim Donnelly inspired the already enthusiastic crowd.

Thank you to Don and Ruth Nydam, Trau and Nancy Karr and their team for organizing the event.  They were not previously involved in the cause to save America.  Like millions of other Americans, Donald Trump brought them off the proverbial couch. 

As always, “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.” Justice Louis D. Brandeis

We need to run all the way to the finish line, not just for Donald Trump but also for “insurgent” Patriot candidates like Paul Chabot, Tim Donnelly and Donna Munoz.

Thank you to Redlands Tea Party Patriots media coordinator John Berry for getting media attention to this event and our cause.
