Good morning, kids. Monday and the big story is, of course, President Trump making like Moe Howard and slamming Malig-Nancy Pelosi’s and Cuck Schemer’s heads together by unilaterally enacting Chinese Lung AIDS relief via executive order. The end-run around them was not only a brilliant political move but just the right thing to do; and that is something that this president has been mostly stellar at for his entire term.
… When the virus first appeared, Trump, in good faith, allowed Fauci to lead him down the primrose path. This meant giving in to, and signing off on, the Democrats’ demands for stimulus bills. His agreement made the Democrats foolhardy. With the economy on life support, deaths from the virus dropping, and Americans desperately wanting to go back to work, the Democrats decided that they could again lard the latest stimulus bill with all manner of things. They assumed Trump would be either trapped or compliant.
What they hadn’t realized was that Trump, like a cat watching a rat draw near, was just waiting for the right moment to spring. Saturday was that day. In the kind of press conference that helps win elections, Trump explained that he was cutting through the Democrats’ ridiculous negotiating tactics and using his executive power to bring relief directly to Americans…
The executive orders Trump signed do four things:
1. Create a payroll tax holiday for Americans earning less than $100,000 annually. The executive order will be retroactive to August 1 and end on December 31, putting more money in employees’ pockets.
2. Continue enhanced unemployment benefits at $400 per week, which is $200 less than the Democrats were demanding, which Trump alleges (probably correctly) makes going back to work more attractive.
3. Extend the eviction moratorium on federal subsidized housing.
4. Suspend student loan payments. (It’s to be hoped that Trump will not ultimately endorse Elizabeth Warren’s demand that the Wuhan virus should be used as an excuse to forgive all student loans. If someone was stupid enough to get a $300,000 gender studies degree, taxpayers should not be on the hook.)…
The Democrat-Media Complex went into absolute freakout mode, doing the fatally-wounded-Pris-replicant flail, flinging all manner of dung from words like “unconstitutional” to the tired but usually effective bromide of “killing Social Security!” Kind of funny, as in disgusting, that Malig-Nancy Pelosi declared Trump’s actions as “unconstitutional slop.” Unfortunately, a mobbed-up old battle-axe doesn’t have the vocabulary to come up with that on her own, and what makes it that much worse is that she was parroting our very own Ben Sasse! Yay!
“The pen-and-phone theory of executive lawmaking is unconstitutional slop. President Obama did not have the power to unilaterally rewrite immigration law with DACA, and President Trump does not have the power to unilaterally rewrite the payroll tax law,” Sasse said…
Well, Senator Sasse, you are correct in the abstract, but this is illustrative of the overall pickle we’re in as a nation and society. The Democrats will use the Constitution as a shield as well as a cudgel when it suits them. When they can’t and it doesn’t, they ignore it completely, banking on the fact that a rogue judiciary and the SCOTUS will rubber stamp anything they do. And even then, the bureaucracy is always there to implement laws with zero constitutional authority, again relying on the judiciary to cover their ass and carve it into granite when the lawsuits fly. We on the other hand, have to always play by the rules even when the entire thing is rigged from start to finish.
Look, I get it. I’d be lying if I said I thought that this end run was kosher. But neither was DACA and look what happened when Trump exercised his absolute legal authority to end it. With America’s cities going up in flames and Bolshevik Revolution 2: BLM/Antifa Boogaloo a red nether hair’s breadth from wiping us out for good, should we be sticklers for following rules that the other side never does?
Or perhaps I’m over analyzing this whole thing. As I said, from a political standpoint, it was brilliance. Trump read Alinsky’s damn book and played this perfectly. Look at what the Democrats are being forced to do – oppose a program giving money to average citizens who are hurting because of Democrat-imposed lockdowns and shutdowns. Cutting off the people from Uncle Sugar does not go down well with the public, especially less than 90 days from an election.
…Questions surround the legality of accomplishing at least some of these things via executive order. Trump’s response to that might be, “so sue me.”
There are also questions about the fiscal impact of some of the measures, at least for those who still care about the national debt. In addition, there are questions about the efficacy of a payroll tax cut and the wisdom of extended generous unemployment benefits.
However, as a political matter, Trump’s move looks like a masterstroke. Since the days of FDR, the public has always seemed to approve of presidents who act to ameliorate suffering while Congress diddles. A flurry of activity, even of the futile or potentially counterproductive kind, makes a president look energetic and caring.
In this instance, Trump’s move might well force congressional Democrats to reach a deal. That outcome, too, would be a political win for the president…
This move comes right on the heels of Angel-of-Death Cuomo’s decision to order New York state’s public schools to open on time for the fall semester. The two, like virtually everything in the links across all categories, are interrelated. People need to get back to work and the continued lockdown is now a political albatross around the Democrats’ collective neck, with the violent riots and Joe Biden’s liquefied medulla oblongata the cinderblocks tied to each leg.
Insofar as the only way they can defeat Trump is through the Mail-In Voting swindle, having the schools open, and in a state as important politically and population-wise as New York, means it’s safe to vote in person. Schools representing a large percentage of polling places in NY and no doubt all over the country. Naturally, Cuomo can pull a fast one and order them shut but to do that would earn him the wrath of New Yorkers across all political lines.
Even putting that aside, the nation has had enough; enough of the riots and thuggery of Antifa and BLM, enough of Dr. Falsie and his Medicine Show, enough of having lives and livelihoods destroyed and enough of being blood-libeled as racists. Again, at the risk of the pessimists shaking their heads, let me just ask, given all of this, can you still see Biden’s carcass dragged over the finish line in a clear, unambiguous victory come November? I can’t.
We’re absolutely loaded with links and there are a lot of good ones, so do peruse all of the categories.
