AND it was this dude's DAY ONE...

It is interesting to note that Thursday was Zinke’s first day as Interior Secretary and repealing the onerous ban one of his first actions.

A Promise Kept: Trump Signs Repeal of Obama-Era Social Security Gun Prohibition Rule

On Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump signed the repeal of an Obama-era Social Security Administration (SSA) rule that would have resulted in some 75,000 law-abiding beneficiaries losing their Second Amendment rights each year.

Give him six months to prove himself, said an information technology supervisor. Give him a year, said a service manager. Give him four years, said a retired print shop owner.

“Give the man a chance,” said Crystal Matthews, a 59-year-old hospital employee. “They’re just going to fight him tooth and nail, the whole way.”

How to commemorate the passing of 100+ days?

How does one commemorate 6 months of Trump (and all our newfound long-lost freedoms)?

Consider this the August entry...
With the departure from the White House of strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who helped shape the so-called nationalist-populist program embraced by Donald Trump in his unlikely path to election, a new phase of the Trump presidency begins. Given Trump’s nature, what comes next will hardly be conventional, but it may well be less willfully disruptive—which, to Bannon, had been the point of winning the White House.

The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday, shortly after confirming his departure. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”


A little self important...but possibly correct.
One can easily imagine a lifelong democrat running on a populist agenda, being elected, and quickly becoming a swamp monster.

Even the die-hard fans like Ann Coulter are spitting mad:
If Trump wants to prove that he didn’t get the good ideas from Bannon, then it better be pedal-to-the-metal on deportations, the Wall, that tax hike on people who make more than $5 million a year, which I understand was Bannon’s idea but perhaps I was wrong. If that was Trump’s idea, then let’s have it!... Did you hear that on Wall Street, they were cheering today?”

In a conversation that amounted to a primal scream, Coulter repeatedly attacked her former hero for betraying his constituency, belittled White House aides such as Kellyanne Conway and Stephen Miller, accused the president of kowtowing to the same news media he professes to loathe, and otherwise raged at the dying of the wall along with any number of other populist policy prescriptions that Trump touted to beat the Republican establishment and Hillary Clinton.

“The millions of people who haven’t voted for 30 years and came out to vote for Trump, thinking ‘finally, here’s somebody who cares about us’—Nope!” Coulter declared. “Republicans, Democrats—doesn’t matter! Jeb exclamation point, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton—doesn’t matter. Goldman Sachs is running the country!”

Regarding the Coulter "pedal to the metal" comment, except for possibly deportations, it doesn't matter what Trump says or does. Trump can push the pedal all he wants, but the car won't go without the engine (the legislative branch) working. I don't follow Ann Coulter or Bannon, did they think they were helping to elect a King?

After 28 years (and counting) of military service, and working on a military base nearly every day of my career, I hoped to see a President who would respect the right to bear arms on a military base and live up to his or her campaign promises.

We are WELL beyond "day 1." Did he really mean what he said? To me the answer is clear.

How did I miss September? I'll keep that one in my pocket.
Now, after Vegas, let's see what the federal champion will do:

President Donald Trump is open to considering legislation that would ban "bump stocks" -- a firearm accessory used to more rapidly fire rounds -- but wants to hear more information on the matter before making a final determination.

Trump told reporters on Thursday he'd be looking into a proposed ban on "bump stocks" in the near future.
"We'll be looking into that in the next short period of time," Trump said, when asked about the proposed ban ahead of a dinner with military officers at the White House.

Earlier in the day, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: "Right now, our focus, as we've said over the last couple of days, is on healing and uniting the country."


Who wants to keep the powder dry? Who wants to give the honeymoon period a spin?
Obviously this isn't happy talk and I'm sure that this comes as cold water after the euphoria of electoral victory. Facts don't consider your feelings. The fact is that he lied about CPZs because it's easy to whip up gun owning votes. Gun owners are as easily fed sound bites as some of the most ignorant food stamp single issue voters on the other side. We've been overlooked, dismissed, and taken for granted because we refuse to let Swamp people with Rs behind their names lose elections when they deserve to lose.

Thursday, November 16 marked 300 days since President Donald Trump took office on January 20. The third 100 days were even more tumultuous than the first 100 and second 100.

And much remains undone. There are still jobs to fill, promises to keep, and bills to sign. Trump has yet to notch a major legislative achievement (thanks, in part, to infighting and incompetence in Congress).

But the Trump administration seems, at last, to have found a rhythm.

SNIP

Meanwhile, the economy boomed, with growth surging to 3.1% in the third quarter. The stock markets soared, hitting constant new records. Trump’s overall approval was dismally low, but economic confidence at its highest level in decades, with tax reform potentially on the horizon.

It was a performance Trump touted on his visit to Asia, the longest by a U.S. president since the early 1990s. After 300 days, it seemed he had finally found his groove.

A groove overseas, nowhere near the Rights of the People.
#Winning!
