With Trump, It Was Goodbye Gridlock - Hello Express Lane; President Trump Hit D.C. Running and He Never Slowed Down

I took an interest in Politics at a very young age. The Goldwater-Johnson race fascinated me and I've been paying attention ever since.


When an Outsider, a Businessman, Came to Town....

Just as many of us had hoped would happen, things got done in our Nation's Capital, when an outsider, a businessman, came to town!

We were so tired of press conference after press conference, address after address, headline after headline, promises of, "we want to get things done, we plan to get things done, we'd like to get the People's business done, but this and but that...

these things take time, but...

there‘s a process, but...

But for....those guys, these guys...

our hands are tied...but, but."

Frankly, we have all had it with all the buts!

Um, moving along...

Yes these things take time, because John has had to check with Joe, to see if Fred will be okay with Sue having Bob sign off!

Trump, the outsider, did not recognize John's relationship with Joe and did not care that these old buddies, old pals, go way back, masters in the fine art of back scratching!

All that these 'relationships' create is gridlock and gridlock hurts this Country.

Gridlock must end!

Unnecessary job creation in unnecessary departments, may create opportunities for massive wealth for the old buddies & old pals, in D.C., but they do nothing for our economy...outside of D.C., that is!

With Trump coming in, like man on fire, signing Executive orders resurrecting the pipelines, in what turned out to be an expedited process, we were brought one step closer to energy independence.

A large number of skilled workers; steel workers and construction workers among them were gainfully employed once more, as a result of the return of manufacturing jobs and as a result of opportunities for employment all along the pipeline routes.

You could say that with a simple stroke of his pen; ducks were put in a row, as two birds were killed with one stone.

It actually became a win-win, because birds weren't literally killed, as is the case when utilizing the progressive left's choice...wind turbines!

At this point, you're probably been reminded of the former President and his proficient pen skills.

Barack Obama did pick up his pen...a lot!

Scroll to Continue

But, there is picking up a pen to grow the Government and there is picking up a pen to grow the U.S. Economy and our personal portfolios (not D.C. insiders) in the process.

Hear, hear for the latter form of pen stroking!

With each stroke of Obama's pen...

  • Government grew and grew and grew...
  • With the creation of each new department, requiring the addition of new department 'Czars', all needing staffing (you get the picture?)
  • Our Military experienced massive cuts. (the one area where investments needed to be made)
  • Mom and Pop Businesses had to cut full-time workers to part-time, many lay-offs had to take place and many Owners had to close their doors permanently, due to mandated healthcare that they just couldn't afford! (I know of so many)

I'll not go on, with Trump, the American voter said no to big, bloated Government, enough said!


Different types of whirlwinds

The Trump Administration had a whirlwind start for sure....

I'm going to always support the man/the woman with a pen, actually getting things done, for America and for the American people!

If and when I feel the man, the woman...veers off course, they'll hear about it, everyone will hear about it!

But, the other whirlwind which took place, the emotional whirlwind, which began before Trump was even sworn in, that which sent leftists over the edge and into witnessed over many weekends, over many years, did nothing positive for this Country!

The most repulsive, potty mouthed, crude women made a spectacle of themselves during events such as 'Resist Weekend', and in multiple women's marches. They were the very-same ones that had been {supposedly} freaking out...over Trump's potty mouth, crude behavior and words from his past!

Ever hear of double standards...girls?

So much of it was staged and theatrical!

Just an observation, all while trying to keep this article, at a PG rating..these nasty women are the embarrassment, not our President!


In record time...more executive orders were signed by our President, for the purpose of cracking down on illegal immigration!

By enforcing our laws, those laws which already exist, our borders are strengthened and made better.

With the addition of border agents, dealing with sanctuary cities and those believing they're above the law, once and for all and of course with the building of the wall, we all became a little safer...

A few years back, my daughter and her friend were in my daughter's truck, completely stopped at a red light, when they were rear ended.

A man hit them at full speed and didn't bother to check on them, he fled the scene!

By God's grace, they only sustained minor injuries and I thank God every day, that these young ladies didn't die that day!

The man that hit them and then fled the scene, was caught nearby, caught only because the car he was driving was no match for the full size Ford truck, which my daughter and her friend were in.

There was so much damage to his vehicle, he didn't get very far and was picked up fairly close to the accident scene.

  • We found out that 'this man' was here in the Country, illegally.
  • He was driving, while extremely intoxicated.
  • He had no driver's license, no type of license whatsoever and no type of identification whatsoever.
  • He had no registration and while it could go without saying, he had no insurance, whatsoever!


We had one phone call from an Attorney. They told us that they would try to get us some money to go toward truck damage and doctor bills.

We never saw a dime and we never received any other calls, not a letter, not a note, nothing. Nada!

My daughter and her friend survived that night and that's all that really matters!

Thank God we didn't become the Parents that so many others have become; those whose stories are similar, whose stories we have all heard, but the difference... their stories include a deadly ending.

I don't know if the freewheeling, uncaring, illegal drunken jerk spent the night in the hospital or in a jail cell and I don't care!

I pray that man was deported and sent far, far away and I need the assurance that he'll never be able to find his way back into this Country, to do harm to another American family!

With President Trump, I had that assurance!

Getting things done

As Trump worked toward putting an end to sanctuary cities, getting the wall completed, {once and for all} sought other ways to keep us all safer by utilizing a more reliable vetting system, the haters spent their time resisting his every decision, his every move!

He was at full throttle, fully engaged, warped speed ahead, getting things done; quickly putting forth a nominee, swearing him in, as a Supreme Court Justice, without any wasting of time and then...he did one more time, once again.

He saw to it that deserving Veterans received the long awaited additional hospitals and doctors, which were desperately needed, for so very long!

Under Trump, per Forbes Magazine:

The stock market was booming

Unemployment fell to all time lows

The GDP had significant increases in the 2nd quarter and then, once again in the 3rd quarter

As a strong economic pattern developed, we knew that we had made the right choice in going with the Businessman who came to town!

What we didn't know is just how much can actually get done, when the right people are put in the right places

Heads were spinning, in more ways than one...with the speed in which things got done.

While the majority of us were so grateful that things promised were actually getting done at warped speed and in record time; the Trump haters, just kept on hating, their heads spinning out of control, in such an ugly, unnatural and despicable manner!

A Very Successful First Term

The opposing party didn't like it at all; a thriving economy, the return of manufacturing jobs, all time low unemployment across the board.

A President who actually did the things that other Presidents and career politicians just talk about doing; puts them in the light they deserve, one which makes them look bad

They couldn't have that!

Goals, such as, dealing with our out of control illegal entry problem, once and for all...accomplished and what does the left do?

What they've always done -

They've labeled, they've name called, they've intentionally destroyed lives/livelihoods, they've created obstacles and diversions and illusions; they've conquered and they've divided!

It never ends with the progressive left, there is no measure of what they are capable of!

Over many decades, they've shown, (whether in power or not) all of us, exactly who they their core!

There's no love for or loyalty to this Country.

There's no Red, White and Blue running through their veins.

There's no pride for this amazing Country, only visions of what this amazing Country might do for them!

In fact, there's no light at their core, whatsoever, it is very dark and a very ugly pace!

It was so refreshing having Donald Trump in office for a time. I hope that we have not seen the last of him!

God Bless and Keep the United States of America!

We are closing in on 100 days. Crazy! The President has been if we can just get Obamacare repealed and replaced.

The World is well aware that Trump isn't Obama, he'll not allow red lines to be crossed.

Best not Test!

Trump is growing on some, grating on others and for many, the jury is still out.

I'm still buckled in and yelling "Faster", let's get things done, but more importantly, I am praying every day for our President, for our Country and for God to be invited back into a world where wickedness thrives.

Hear Hear Ken!

Nothing ever seems to sink in with Love, (aka: lovemychris) she just enjoys "railing against" I guess.

Ken Burgess from Florida on March 02, 2017:

Obama wasn't a Tyrant so much as a Traitor to America's sovereign interests and the interests of American working class citizens.

lovemychris you rail against Republicans, Conservatives, those who did not support the 'left... once more you miss the core of what is going on... a collection of former Republicans, Independents and Democrats that are fed up with Washington, are fed up with Congress especially, and they DEMAND change in D.C.

They DEMAND that Obamacare is done away with, that NAFTA and its ilk is done away with, that they are paid attention to and not marginalized and most importantly that the politicians care about their jobs, rather than the corporation's profits.

So again, I say it is all on the Republicans now... they can get the things done that they were elected to do, rid us of Obamacare, rid us of these job stealing trade agreements and start taxing the damned imports rather than the citizens of America that still have jobs... or they can face ultimately a unified mob from the far left and the far right and everyone in the middle rising up against them.

Trump is the FU by the people to the corrupt establishment... what happens if that FU isn't heeded... if corrections aren't made and economic prosperity for the working class restored, is an eventual revolt... or marital law.  I don't see either of the latter happening, I see economic prosperity being restored, and the continual marginalization of the 'left' for the foreseeable future (8 to 12 years).

The sore losers are in reality such a minority of "the people" and they know it. That is why Obama and Soros and the left are funding all these with everything the left does they deceitfully have to make it appear that they are not in the minority. Nothing the left promotes can ever succeed unless they can make it appear they are in the majority of people or at least not an insignificant minority which is really what they are.

Angie B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on January 30, 2017:

Yes so true....sore Losers are calling for chaos in the streets, sore Losers are speaking out via the biased Media, all to rile up everyone! Out of touch Hollywood is riling everyone up, every time they have their Look at us, Listen to us 'Awards Shows'!

Americans voted in Trump, because they want to feel safe again. They want their families to be safe again!

Everything currently taking place within this Administration, is ALL about doing exactly that; by strengthening our borders, utilizing a thorough vetting process, detaining where necessary, (note: if overseas travelers already have a green card, they will not be restricted in their travel) (note:there will be a (90) day Security Measure, so that proper vetting may take place)

Everyone that insists on calling Trump's Actions a ban......I say, okay, hopefully these measures will work and those being Targeted...the Terrorists!!! ...Will be banned from entering the United States!

Common Sense is hard at work and that's what is required at this time.

Get over it Sore Losers and use your noggins!

Sanx, "What facts do you need taze."

The facts to support your vapid statements, facts that don't exist. Nice try at feigning ignorance.

Facts concerning your vapid statements I referred to:

"The government has not grown one iota in the last 8 years." A LIE WITH NO FACTS TO BACK IT UP BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY.

"Trump has done nothing that he can sustain." A LIE WITH NO FACTS TO BACK IT UP BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY.

"At some point the rest of the Government will be telling him you need our approval and half of it will end up in court and will be found it will not pass with his authority." A LIE WITH NO FACTS TO BACK IT UP BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY.


Sanxuary on January 28, 2017:

What facts do you need taze. He sighned a buntch of executive orders. I approve of the border fence but making Mexico pay for it, Really? Maybe Isreal should make the Palestinians pay for all the walls they had. Maybe we should compensate Russia for the wall they built. Sanxuary cities is probably one of the most falsely reported stories. The 14th amendment of the constitution states that only the federal government has the powers to enforce immigration laws. A sactuary city simply states that the law in that jurisdiction will not enforce the imigration status of its people. It does however have the power to refer anyone who breaks the law to immigration officials. its been blown out of proportion by those on both sides. I would love to see Trump pull all Federal funding from all these places in violation of the constitution. Thats the problem with all his plans. They are endless days in court coming soon and some how skipped all the other branches of government. When every state has been challenged by what they find to be unconstitutional its going to get real nasty, real quick. Where is Trump getting all this money from were 20 Trillion in debt. Thats right he is going to drastically cut taxes. Maybe Mexico will pay for it.

Thank God for Catholic Charities and Shelters and Food Banks and Food Pantries and Christian Centers.....there is so much help for people that need it! My Church and every Church that I know of, does so much for the Community!

Sometimes Government assistance is required, but it is not there to sustain for a lifetime, those that are perfectly capable of helping themselves.

single moms work hard to take care of their kids, with gummint help...and how do you make them feel?


and snowflakes refers to prisoners in nazi concentration camps. good one.

Angie B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on January 27, 2017:

Love, there is a large group of Americans that believe the Government owes them, if you don't, then I'm not talking to you.

As far as someone taking care of someone else (a full-time job) or the retired or the infirmed, our Veterans... that's completely different!

I should not be surprised that you would go an effort to make me feel bad or look bad, you insulted those working hard to take care of loved ones, that cannot take care of themselves.....I really do try to be patient with you!

Split in the ranks? You are so out of touch if after all that has transpired, Trump winning the election and he and Pence delivering on their campaign promises already, which is what got them elected by the way, you think there is any possibility of dissension in the ranks because of a tweet months ago taken out of context .

When you snowflakes are done grabbing at straws because there are no more straws to grab you make straws up...

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on January 27, 2017:

im a liberal left, and i work for a living.

one of your right wing trump defenders stays home, while the awful gummint pays her to stay home and take care of her mother.

who would you judge is the problem here?

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on January 27, 2017:

heres a fact; mike pence tweeted "calls to ban muslims from america are offensive and unconstitutional"....

creakkkk, door opening for split in the ranks?

oh mr trump, perhaps they are only using you?

you got them in power, but guess what. they can take you out!

Angie B Williams (author) from Central Florida, USA on January 27, 2017:

The only people he is "angering" is the liberal left (those that want something for nothing) and greedy career politicians (those that have lost their way and have put themselves before their constituents, before their Country)

Two groups that do nothing positive for America.

Money has to be spent, where it counts!

Money has to be spent where it benefits!

The U.S. Government doesn't exist to bear the weight of half the Nation or to keep Politicians employed for a Lifetime.

Half the Nation, that believes it does, is part of the problem ( the problem that you think doesn't exist!)

The other half is out here working hard to make a living for our families, running small businesses, hoping to keep people Employed, all while we are bogged down with unnecessary Government regulation, (regulation which has gone from practical to 'Gone Wild') (due to bloated Departments that we do not need!) all while WE are asked to pay more and more.

Businesses, especially Small Businesses, need an Ally in the White House and I think we have one!

This is turning into another Article, I've gone too long.

Suffice it to say... . Keep it up President Trump!

I'm so glad Love. No, no Tea hat for me. Maybe I'll share pics from my Tea Party days, one of these days. One of my shirts reads, 'Home of the Free because of the Brave', one has an American flag on it with the words, 9/12 Project. Those words because the day after the horrific attacks of 9/11, we ALL came together and it was a beautiful thing.

I carried a small American flag and a small Gadsden flag.

Thanks Taze for being so detailed. Appreciated!

Leslie, There you go twisting things again. Can't you get anything right? Obama used his power unconstitutionally - that is what made him tyrannical. There are legitimate executive orders and there are illegal actions which violate the Constitution.

In the spring of 2012, President Obama issued an aggressive string of executive orders to combat what he viewed as hopelessly-deadlocked Congress. Some of his more controversial, and arguably unconstitutional executive orders are as follows:

1. Directed the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act;

2. Gave states waivers from federal mandates if they agreed to education overhauls;

3. Changed significant provisions of and the timing of Obamacare;

4. Declared an anti-gay-rights law unconstitutional;

5. Reshaped immigration policy by ordering the federal government to halt deportation of certain illegal immigrants.

President Obama’s five executive orders above are clearly unconstitutional under the guidelines set forth by the U.S. Supreme Court because the five executive orders are not only merely “incompatible” with the expressed or implied will of Congress, they directly contravene, change, or alter acts of Congress in violation of the separation of powers and the U.S. Constitution. Congress set forth specific deadlines and enforcement laws with regard to the implementation of Obamacare and the president has changed them on his own authority because it was politically advantageous to do so.

So once again, for the umteenth time, all you have Leslie is lefty talking points (lies) to offer with absolutely nothing to back them up.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on January 26, 2017:

im the one who tries to move to the fast lane, but is blocked by the slowpoke beside me, who then speeds up as soon as he gets in front. (no manners)

and no, i dont have a p hat, do you have a tea hat?

Love... I thought that you may have left us and were now living in a bunker. Please tell me that you weren't at one of the Marches in one of those hideous 'hats'.

Key words used in discussing the Pipelines "hopefully be expedited". Pipe isn't being laid yet, it has to be formed first! YAY for Jobs!

Trump isn't out laying stone and mortar for the Wall, a payment plan is being hashed out as I type.

When faced with gridlock on the Interstate, are you one that seeks the fast, unencumbered lane or are you content in the far right lane, moving along at a snail's pace?

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on January 26, 2017:

wasnt that a huge complaint you had about obama? working without consent of congress?

wasnt he called a tyrant?
