From Recounts, Cabinet picks etc.
I’m finding it hard to keep up with
the breaking news all over the place.
Still 48 days till noon Jan. 20th 2017 when Trump takes
office. That is a lot of time and I’m having
a heck of a time keeping up with all the news.
You’d think Donald Trump was already in office.
I’ve already reported how costly and
labor intensive this recount will be for all 83 counties in Mi. and the
Secretary of State who will have to send reps to all counties to oversee the
recount. I’ve seen price tags from $4-12
Trump filed the
objection to the State Board of Canvassers which will be ruling today any time
probably as I type whether to go on or not. Will update blog as it happens. The board has 2 Dems and 2 Reps so if a tie the recount goes
--- update ---- go to the link below and you will see the Canvass Board as predicted deadlocked so the earliest recount start is Wed. Also Schuette's Supreme Court Motion is pending.
--- end of update ---
Trump filed on the grounds that
Jill Stein is not an aggrieved person.
She could not win by almost any stretch of the imagination. She would have to find over 2 million bad
votes for Trump and Hillary that were actually cast for her. Give me a break.
Also in the objection there was
mention that Stein’s filing for a recount wasn’t filled out properly. Either way, the Canvass Board is meeting at
9:30 today (Friday) and even if it acts today the recount can’t start for two
more business days which at the earliest would be Wed. Dec 7 which some County
Clerks might be tempted to say that’s “a date that will live in infamy” as they
must still meet the Deadline of Dec 13th to recount all the votes.
How about that Trump and the Carrier
Remember when Obama said “You didn’t
build that” and how out of touch we thought he was with the real America? Well he managed to show his “out of touchness”
again during the primaries. This time regarding the Carrier
deal Trump had promised to figure out. Obama's chickens seem to be coming home to roost.
Here is a You Tube of Obama stutteringly explaining how Trump doesn’t have
a magic wand and isn’t a magician. Well
to paraphrase Churchill’s famous “some chicken, some neck” quote. “Some wand, some magician”. Below is the You
Tube of Obama. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqoTS9ZT1vU
America voted for someone to get the
job done. Trump isn’t in office yet and
got that deal done, while President Obama dithered about re-training the workers
sometime in the far future for new job markets.
That older steelworker who asked the question probably was thinking of being trained as a
hamburger flipper at minimum wage and would have turned Churchill’s quote around thinking, “some job, some wage Mr. Obama.”.
Trump’s Cabinet picks.
If you look on the side bar of my blog at the top you will see the picks
President Donald Trump has made so far and the ones he still needs to
fill. I’ll try to keep up with them as
they come out.
the latest pick Trump. Secretary of Defense.
He may have some trouble but far be it for me to say he can’t
do it however much the media will never tire of saying just that. Lol.
I’m talking about Trump’s pick of Ret. Marine Corps Gen. James "Mad
Dog" Mattis as secretary of defense. Because he was relieved from active duty in
2013 he would need a Senate waiver for sec 903 of H.R.4986 — 110th Congress (2007-2008) which reads. “(Sec. 903) Reduces from ten to
seven years the period that a regular commissioned officer must wait after
being relieved from active duty in order to become eligible for appointment as
the Secretary or Deputy Secretary of Defense, or the Under Secretary of Defense
That might be a problem. Gen. Mattis has been out of service for only
4 years max and the statute above calls for 7 years. A waiver would then be needed and would need 60
votes for the Senate to wave the statute, and then the simple majority would
be needed for confirmation.
think Republicans can get enough Dems to vote for the waiver and if so what
would be the cost in political capital for Trump to do it? But like I said who am I to say what Trump can’t
Trump’s Ohio Carrier/Thank You Tour
I like the part that started at
the 52:38 mark where he was talking about how for too long we have been divided,
put in boxes of race age income where we live etc. He said we need to come together and the One
thing to unite us is America, America America. Three times he said America.
I would put what he went on to say in my words that to make America united
again we have to start from the bottom and work up. Trump said people start from the family, city then state. He
like most Americans despise the Global aspirations of the Dems.
Any way this is a fun victory rally.
So let it be written, so let it be
That was reminiscent to me of Obama saying
in this you tube below “I’ve got a pen……..and a phone” with of course the ever
present I as In I will write it, so let what I want to be done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6tOgF_w-yI
That reminds me of a quote from Rufus Choate of the Whig Party talking about the United
States and what we had created when he referred to how easily it can be destroyed. “…the anger of a fool or the laughter of a
fool …. May bring down in an hour …. A fragile yet beautiful creation, which a
breath can unmake as a breath has made it.”
Donald Trump soon to be President Trump may take the words of Obama to
heart to rewrite what Obama has written and to resurrect James Choate breathe some life back into our
fragile yet beautiful creation. So let
it be done. I'll let you figure out who the "laughing fool" is.
