The Trump administration is finding itself in a relentless media onslaught of epic proportions this week. Of course we’ve known since the night Trump humiliated Queen Hillary that the media and radically insane left would be calling for his impeachment every time he left the toilet seat up.
Welp, here we are. Nearly every network, cable, paper, and internet ‘news’ site has turned into 24/7 Trump ‘scandal’ coverage. Now you may be wondering why this matters when the GOP controls all branches of government, none of which are named ‘the media’ and therefore require approximately zero levels of permission from the likes of Rachel Maddow to accomplish something substantive and conservative. Unfortunately, politicians prioritize about 4,598 things on any given day, and your liberty, wealth, and overall quality of life are 4596, 4597, and 4598, in no particular order, but certainly dead last.
So, since we’re talking about priorities, I thought it might be a useful exercise to list all of the things we hope to achieve during Trump’s presidency. After all, there are all sorts of compelling and consequential questions looming over Trump now, so we must take an occasion to document them.
Serious questions like “What could’ve possibly compelled Trump, the man who made famous the slogan ‘you’re fired’, to actually fire someone he didn’t approve of? Why on earth would the Attorney General/former Senator speak with the ambassador to Russia? Can the allegations brought forward by unnamed sources in anti-Trump media outlets ever truly be disproven, or shall we assume they’re 100% accurate given the severity of the charges?” America needs to know the answers to these questions in order to get on with our lives!
Actually, it turns out, we don’t need to know any of these things. Not really. The portion of food on my family’s plates don’t shrink and grow by the answers to such trivial nonsense, most of which is completely fabricated for political purposes. Maybe if we were a healthy and functioning civil society when Trump took office, these issues would be important. Instead, the reality of the situation dictates that we should at least pretend like the survival of American liberty is at stake. Because, it is.
So, here is my list of things I think are most important that we resolve during the Trump administration:
- Confiscatory tax code.
- Fascistic national healthcare system, a.k.a Obamacare.
- $20 TRILLION in national debt.
- $100’s of trillions in unfunded liabilities.
- Swiss cheese borders and floods of illegal immigrants.
- Judicial activism.
- Hyper-regulated economy.
- Cultural rejection of federalism and individual liberty.
- Total destruction of the western way of life.

As you can see, the many ways in which Trump is behaving unprofessionally, or less than traditionally palatable, or even potentially unethically (according to publications who are caught lying on a near hourly basis), I have bigger concerns. I frankly couldn’t care less about whether Trump is honest to the serial liars in the media, especially provided he deliver on what he promised his voters (raises hand). Were these circumstances my preference during the primaries? Nope. I voted for Lyin Ted. But is Trump our only shot at draining the swamp even a little bit in the next 4-8 years? You betcha. I don’t see that Trump’s ridiculous behavior changes the gravity and necessity of his swamp draining agenda in the slightest.
All that’s left to be done is for our dear leader to take the bull by the horns and get his reforms passed. He said he was the guy who could do it. Get on with it already!
Call me crazy, but I think an actual repeal of Obamacare and an actual passage of tax reform, and the actual construction of an actual brick/mortar/steel/titanium/ crocodiles/anythingpleaseGod wall on the southern border would take precedent in the daily media theater over Trump firing an FBI director, a man who was hated by the Democrats 12 minutes before their unrelenting adoration. At least then we would be on offense and, oh gee, I don’t know, ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING USEFUL AND LASTING.
I don’t feel especially confident this will happen, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try and push for it. Otherwise we’ll most assuredly bear witness to the continued deterioration of our liberty, not to mention the future of our children and grandchildren.
Anyhow, what we’re seeing now is just theater, plain and simple. Politicians stroking their own egos holding worthless hearings and getting on camera as often as possible. Media sites fishing for clicks with sensational headlines and downright lies to advance their leftist agenda. Protestors being paid to take the streets and paint a manufactured narrative. No one will be impeached. No special prosecutor is coming. All that’s happening is a blown opportunity of epic proportions to save our Republic from impending doom. A complete and utter waste of time.
Great work, Republicans. Bravo.
