IT WOULD APPEAR THAT AMERICANS LIKE TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS …
One would think listening to the liberal MSM and the LEFT that Americans have an issue with President Donald Trump’s executive orders, however, according to a recent Morning Consult/Politico poll, that could not be farther from the truth. As per the poll, 55% of Americans support Trump’s traval ban executive order while only 33% disapprove. See below, as many of his other executive orders are polling positive with the American people as well. So once again its the MSM, Democrats and the LEFT on the wrong side of “We the People”.
President Donald Trump’s executive order barring refugees and people from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US is one of his most popular so far, according to a new poll from Morning Consult and Politico.
The order has a 55% approval rating among voters polled, with 35% saying they “strongly approve.” Thirty-eight percent of voters said they disapprove.
Opinions about the order fall along party lines — 82% of Republicans support the ban, and 65% of Democrats oppose it.
The only executive order more popular than the travel ban is the one revoking federal funding for so-called immigration sanctuary cities. That order has a 55% approval rating, with 33% disapproving.
The Morning Consult/Politico poll was conducted from February 2-4.

THE WALL WILL BEGIN IN MONTHS …

Full interview transcript can be read HERE.
In his first one-on-one television interview since being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, President Donald Trump told ABC News anchor David Muir that Mexico would be paying for the proposed border wall and that negotiations between the two nations would begin “relatively soon.”
“Ultimately, it will come out of what’s happening with Mexico … and we will be in a form reimbursed by Mexico, which I’ve always said,” Trump said.
During the interview, which took place at the White House this morning, Trump said that Mexico would pay the U.S. back “100 percent.”
He confirmed that U.S. taxpayer dollars would be used to start the construction but said reimbursement would follow.
“All it is, is we’ll be reimbursed at a later date from whatever transaction we make from Mexico,” he said. “I’m just telling you there will be a payment. It will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form. What I’m doing is good for the United States. It’s also going to be good for Mexico. We want to have a very stable, very solid Mexico.”
When asked about the start of construction, Trump said it would happen in “months.”
“As soon as we can, as soon as we can physically do it,” he said. “I would say in months, yeah. I would say in months — certainly planning is starting immediately.”
Donald Trump Pledges ‘America First’ Creed, says ‘You will Never be Ignored Again’ … And Power Back to the People!!!
TRUMP CHIDES WASHINGTON POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT AND PLEDGES POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE …
President elect no more, now President of the United States Donald J. Trump. In his inauguration speech, Trump ripped the Washington, DC political establishment class and promised to return the power back to We the People. President Trump stated an ‘America first’ creed and ‘you will never be ignored again’. This is why Trump was elected. Let this be a warning to Republicans and Democrat politicians alike.
Donald J. Trump preached the populist and nationalist message that fueled his presidential campaign in his first remarks as the 45th president of the United States, pledging an “America first” creed.
“The forgotten men and women of this country will be forgotten no longer,” the businessman and former reality television star said in front of the U.S. Capitol on Friday.
As raindrops fell on the crowd gathered on the National Mall, Trump said he planned to “transfer power from Washington, D.C.” to the people, taking swipes at politicians, some of whom stood just over his shoulder. He told Americans that “you will never be ignored again,” repeating his campaign pledges to push companies to return jobs to the U.S. and to rebuild American infrastructure.
UPDATE I: Trump criticized those in Washington who he said had forgotten those who bore the cost of the actions of politicians.
“We are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you, the people,” said Trump.
Charles Krauthammer on the Hypocrisy Over the Bradly/Chelsea Manning Commutation vs. Wikileaks Hacked Emails (VIDEO)
The hypocrisy of Barack Obama and the LEFT that they would consider the Wikileaks embarrassing, hacked emails of Team Hillary damning and the reason why she lost a presidential election, while Manning’s release of documents and information of America’s actions in on going wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, including the identities of individuals who were working for us, many of whom are probably now dead as they were hunted down and killed as nothing and only worth a slap on the wrist.
People’s lives were put at risk, but Obama trumped national security issues vs. an individual with a gender issue.
Barack Obama Looked to Reduce Manning Sentence He Viewed as ‘Nuts’ as Common Sense Americans See Obama and Manning’s Actions as Damage to America
ON HIS WAY OUT THE DOOR, OBAMA PROVES TO ALL THAT HE IS THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF AND OUT OF TOUCH WITH MAINSTREAM AMERICA …
In what can only be described as the perfect metaphor to personify the Barack Obama presidency, Obama and his minions looked upon the 35 year sentence handed down to Bradly/Chelsea Manning as “nuts,” while others that like to refer to as those that live on this place I call Earth, looked upon the crimes that Manning committed as an extreme danger to the United States. Barack Obama and those in his ear would have us believe that Manning has already served enough time as the lame duck president commuted Manning’s sentence by 80% from 35 years to 7. Obama’s own Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter recommended against commutation, but Obama did it anyhow. Why? What would possess a President of the United States of America who took an oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, to do such a thing knowing the damage that Bradly Manning did? Maybe, just maybe we are seeing the real Obama and his agenda in his last days and his legacy of not only failure but intended damage and division to America.
The key question for the president was how much time Manning should serve. He and his advisers looked at other government leak cases, which indicated that 35 years was the longest sentence ever imposed for a leak conviction. By the time the second request came in, Manning had served six years, much of that time subjected to harsh treatment and solitary confinement.
In his decision to commute Manning’s sentence, made public this week, Obama knew he would face criticism, the person close to the president said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. “But he felt strongly it was the right thing to do.”
Most people think Barack Obama is nuts and much worse for commuting a sentence of an individual that committed an act of treason against the United States. Andrew McCarthy at National Review provides the basis of the damage caused not only by Bradly Manning, but Barack Obama as well. Obama’s actions are breathtaking when one considers that in a different time and generation, Manning’s actions would have been cause for the death penalty. But as Instapundit opines, “look at the way Obama treats America’s friends and compare it to the way he treats America’s enemies, and it’s obvious that Obama’s interests and America’s only rarely coincide.”
- First, it is also disgraceful for the New York Times to report without balance that “Prosecutors … presented no evidence that anyone was killed because of [Manning’s] leaks.” As the Times well knows, in cases involving classified information, the government frequently cannot reveal – let alone prosecute – the damage done.
- Second, there is a logical way to deduce the damage caused. I laid it out in a column about Hillary Clinton’s reckless mishandling of our nation’s secrets:
- Third, the degree to which Obama has wielded executive power in favor of America’s enemies and against his own political opponents and scapegoats is breathtaking. The treasonous Manning gets an 80 percent shave off his sentence. Now we learn Oscar Lopez-Rivera, an unrepentant FALN terrorist convicted of waging war against the United States, has also had his sentence commuted.
