Trump can eviscerate Obama’s policies by dropping lawsuits, revoking memos

Forget about waiting for Congress — Donald Trump can eviscerate Obamacare and cripple President Obama’s global warming framework all on his first few days in office by directing policy from the White House and ordering his Justice Department to drop lawsuits that the current administration is pursuing.

Lawyers said getting rid of the government’s mandate that schools allow transgender students to choose their bathrooms could be as simple as retracting an Education Department letter, then letting judges know that is no longer the administration’s position.

Mr. Obama’s 2014 deportation amnesty, which is also the subject of court challenges, could be nixed by revoking the Homeland Security memo that laid out the policy, then telling judges it’s gone. No memo, no case.

It was always the danger lurking in Mr. Obama’s penchant for going it alone and declining to work with Congress — a new president who disagrees with him can quickly reverse many of his big-ticket accomplishments.

“What Obama’s pen and phone giveth, Trump’s Sharpie and Twitter will taketh away,” said Josh Blackman, an associate professor at the South Texas College of Law.

    If Obama wants to be the community agitator, I hope he’s in the front of the line when the proverbial you know what hits the fan.

    AMERICA!! I will have to say No! Don’t drop the Lawsuits, this is what this idiots are looking for, so they can keep on going with their corruption, and destruction. They know they are guilty…. and such will let them get away, to keep on doing the same thing. I say keep with the law suits, they have created treason. Mr. Trump…. keep Faith and Trust in God, and His Son, Christ Jesus. Get this people done once and for all, or they will come back and haunt You!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/032193914e0685b6cbf942cf0b768f1db3279146e3605abaa0cc757bc06f5d0a.jpg

    TRUMP IS SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING. I WOULD HAVE LIKE TO HAVE BEEN A FLY ON THE WALL TO REALLY KNOW WHAT WAS SAID.

    PRAY THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN, BUT PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP, BE VERY CAREFUL, WE HAVE WORKED TO HARD TO LOSE YOU NOW.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53, A REG. DEM. ALL MY LIFE, BUT I VOTED FOR TRUMP.

    DONT JUST LIKE THIS SEND IT TO ALL YOU KNOW. WE MAY BE IN FOR SOME ROUGH TIMES.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP FOR A TRY AT A MUSLIM INVASION OF THIS COUNTRY BY, HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SORROS AND THE BIASED MEDIA. READ ALL THE WHYS BELOW.

    IF YOU READ ALL THE BELOW YOU MIGHT WAKE UP. IF YOU ARE FOR THE BELOW, THEN YOU ARE TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA.

    WHY ISN’T A LAW BEING ENFORCED BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. THIS LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952.

    WHY DO YOU THINK ANYTHING OBAMA HAS DONE IS LEGAL, HE HAS CONFESSED TO BEING A MUSLIM ON NAVTION WIDE TV. EVERYTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IN 8 YEARS IS ILLEGAL.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY HAD A MUSLIM FROM A RADICAL FAMILY AS HER TOP AIDE FOR 10 YEARS, HUMA COULD BE A PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS TO THE MUSLIM WORLD.

    WHY HAS OBAMA SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH MUSLIMS ANOTHER PERFECT PIPELINE TO PASS SECRETS. HE HAS DECLARED HIMSELF A MUSLIM.

    WHY DOES THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA SAY HE IS NOT A MUSLIM, WHEN I HAVE A LIST OF WHERE 34 TIMES HE HAS EITHER HELPED THEM OR SAID HE WAS ONE.

    WHY GET MAD AT PUTIN, HE SAID THAT THERE WAS NO PLACE IN RUSSIA FOR ANYONE THAT WOULD NOT FOLLOW THEIR LAW AND SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE, THEY WOULD HAVE TO GO TO A COUNTRY THAT DID.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    WHY DID THIS ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES? MOST CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES. I PERSONALLY VERIFIED THE ONES IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL PARK, IN IL. AND THE ONE AT DOVEER, TN. AND THE FEMA CAMP IN EAST KY.

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINIA, CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE THEY BRINGING THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MUSLIMS HERE?

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER HAVING TO FEED, CLOTH & HOUSE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF MUSLIMS BEING BROUGHT HERE?

    WHY GIVE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS BROUGHT IN FREE HEALTH CARE, SPENDING THOUSANDS FOR HOSPITAL CARE?

    WHY ARE THE ILLEGALS BEING TREATED BETTER THAN OUR VETERANS.

    WHY STOP THE TANK AND PLANE SHIPPMENT TO EGYPT, WHEN THEIR ARMY KICKED THE RADICALS OUT?

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT SEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP THE RADICALS IN IRAN, A COUNTRY OUT TO DESTROY US?

    WHY ARE WE SENDING BILLIONS TO ARAB COUNTRIES, AND LETING OUR COUNTRY GO TO POT?

    WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY?

    WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

    WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

    WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS? HE STOPPED A MUSLIM UPRISING BY DOING JUST THAT.

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    WHY ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WHEN THEY COST MORE PER YEAR THAN THE IRAQ WAR.

    WHY SEND BILLIONS TO MUSLIM COUNTRIES TRYING TO KILL US.

    YOU SAY THAT A MUSLIM TRY AT A TAKEOVER IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR, OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, LET THE WORLD KNOW YOU ARE DOING SO.

    THE LAST WHY, WHY DONT THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS??? COULD THEY NOT BE FOR THE INVASION”

    TRUMP IS NOW THE PRESIDENT, SO, GET ON BOARD AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT.

  • mort_f

    Pres. Trump can also add a few more techniques:

    Selective enforcement of existing laws.
    Stopping the practice of end of fiscal year procurement.
    Hiring and promotion freezes, especially in certain agencies.
    Cancelling ‘grants’.

    I am sure that there are additional items, that are constitutional, and that can be added to the list. And even if they are of dubious constitutionality, He need not fear impeachment. There is much precedent for that, especially from the past nearly 8 years..

    • I Seigel

      Maybe Trump could get on with the business of governing if Obama gave all his people a blanket pardon, which he’s fully entitled to do. Then Trump doesn’t have to waste time on the past, but he can get to work making America great again.

  • Allan Scott

    Trump has his hand’s full correcting our failed black President’s policies along with jailing most of his hand picked cabinet leaders for a number of VALID CRIMES that they’ve committed.

  • Bruce Van Gemert Sr

  • Tiger

    He is a smart cookie he outsmarted sometimes seemed like with the help of the Almighty these people all through his campaign and even predicted just in time things that did happen. He has on his site that he is going to use the 10th amendment to do what he needs to do and he spells it out and the amendment. He will go through those 100 days like a bat out of Hell and nobody will stop him.

    He has stamina and he stays up til all hours and he is indeed not going to be sidetracked by anything. This calling for him and Pence to be assassinated and all that these people are doing is beyond belief. They have surely brought about generations of insipid children who are in college and the things they believe is something even my small grandchild wouldn’t swallow.

    • Walter Flatt

      GOD CAN USE PEOPLE AND HAS AND I BELIEVE HE IS USING TRUMP TODAY, IF NOT, WHY DID ONE OF THE MOST RELIEGOUS GROUPS IN THE USA VOTED FOR HIM IN A BLOCK, THIS WHY, HE TOOK MICH., OH., PA., FLA., HELPED IN IN., AND NEARLY TOOK VA. OHIO AN PA GAVE HIM THE ELECTION. WHAT GROUP WAS THAT, OH, IT WAS THE AMISH, 30 LEADERS MED WITH 3 MILION AND VOTE TO VOTE FOR TRUMP AS A UNIT. ISN’T GOD GREAT.

      OH, I AM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT I VOTED FOR TRUMP, NOT BECAUSE HE WAS A MAN, BUT, WHEN I GOOGLED, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, NO WAY COULD I VOTE FOR THE CLINTONS EVER.

        We are all Americans there is no party when it comes to saving ourselves, our families and our children from what they had planned for us.

      • voncile fullwood

        Walter,more Christians voted this time which made history,and many were on their knees crying out to God,like the children of Israel when they wondered in the wilderness for forty years -God heard the prayed and it was answered.these eight years has been more crooked and more heart ache for the people in America than ever before and God sees the corruption and evil and I feel God allowed Obama to win to bring His people to their knees because they were falling by the wayside so this time instead of the wayside they fallen on the knees for mercy and to deliver His people from Hillary and Obama,So! God gets all the Glory for it shook me up that she would win and I thank Him for His Grace and Mercy

  • David Stewart

    Yes, also Obongo sent 11 billion dollar defense bill in today; put a hold on that, make certain it’s for THIS nation!

  • Donald Wilson

    Glad to see President elect Trump is getting ready to eviscerate the garbage Obama set into play. Good luck, God Bless and give them Hell…

    • I Seigel

      Latest headlines say that Trump says he may keep parts of Obamacare. And Common Core. What do you think of that?

      • Skip Plummer

        You’re dreaming, troll. Haven’t seen any headlines that even come close to that… only shows up in disreputable rags.

        • I Seigel

          Pay attention. You’ll be hearing about it very soon.

          • Skip Plummer

            Hearing about it and ignoring it. You’re just more fodder to push libs towards going wee-wee in their pants.

          • I Seigel

            When will you not ignore it? Only when you read about it from Breitbart? Better sell all your stocks because you’re WAY behind the news. Maybe you should bet on the Indians to win the World Series!! They have a great chance, you know!

      • Rodney Steward

        Lie, common core is gone, not heard anything about Opeycare!

        • I Seigel

          Open your eyes and ears and you will know the truth. You didn’t choose a liar, you elected a master bullshi**er.

          • Rodney Steward

            We’ve had both, lying and bullshi$er with the brown clown for 8 years that wants us a 3rd world country, just like Hellary, so instead the good Lord gave us a chance to save our country!

          • I Seigel

            Do you recall when Trump promised – several times – that he wouldn’t take ANY salary as president? Let’s see if he keeps that promise, too, or was that just more bulls*t from the Master?

          • Rodney Steward

            Kinda like if you like your Doctor coon, shi$ !!

          • I Seigel

            So when he starts breaking campaign promise after campaign promise, THAT will be your excuse for him?!?! LOL!!!

            No wall, Obamacare not so bad after all, Common Core I can’t do anything about, can’t really bring back Carrier jobs, no, bombing ISIS isn’t the answer, drain the swamp, but now I’ll go and hire the swampdellers to be part of my transition team – and you’ll forgive all that because Obama couldn’t keep his promise on healthcare because the Republicans wouldn’t allow it to succeed? You really do have $HIT for BRAIN$!!! LOL!!!

          • Rodney Steward

            Well that’s what happens when you lower the standards of the White house for a black man, it makes people like you feel smart! And Opeycare is a total flop unless your black, poor or from another country, it ain’t for the real working American! What part of it have U not been keeping up with DIP!! 🙂

          • I Seigel

            Tell me, Rodney, what’s your definition of a “real working American”?

          • Rodney Steward

            A person that was born American and willing to do a hard days work, like building houses, pouring concrete, Serving the military, or even the office people, as long as they are REAL Americans at heart!! What’s yours!!!!!!

          • I Seigel

            So it sounds like your definition is that REAL Americans “at heart” are those willing to do a hard day’s work like building houses and pouring concrete and serving the military. Office workers MIGHT be REAL Americans at heart, but not necessarily. The amount of “Americanness” is directly related to the amount of calories and sweat they expend, is that right?

            How about people who work at Wal-Mart? Or Boeing? Are teachers REAL Americans at heart? A violinist in the Indianapolis Symphony? How about a single mom who runs a food website, or a college kid blogger? Are they REAL Americans, too? How about the wacko drug addicted homeless guy that has PTSD and injuries from serving in Iraq or Vietnam? Are any of them American enough to qualify for Opeycare?

          • Rodney Steward

            Don’t have to be a sweat job, just a good working job, that use to be 40 Hr. a week, but thanks to the Unconstitutional Opeycare there are none! And Wal-Mart has their own Ins., and a single mom working is great, most live off the gov., and the poor drugged PTSD guy I feel sorry for, but we can thank Opey for that shi$ too! Been 8 years of this POS and the VA is still no better, really worse, the B-TARD hates our military anyway! I spent 12 years in the military, and I know what it’s like, lost 2 uncles to the Nam war, and far as a college kid blogger, that’s BS, most are brainwashed idiots anyway by these socialist teachers! And don’t know a D’N thing about a violinist, I’m a country boy, raise most of my food, and kill, catch, and trap most all my meat!! And I don’t have the second rate Opeycare, I have the same as the teachers or state, wife is retired state worker!!

          • I Seigel

            Yeah, PTSD and homeless vets didn’t exist before Obama, did they? It’s all that Muslim’s fault, isn’t it? The Veterans’ Administration, vets’ medical care – everything was hunky dory and all vets were taken care of before Obammy, right?

            And when the tens of thousands of vets came back from Afghanistan and Iraq, the Republicans in Congress stepped up to the plate and funded big increases to the Veterans’ Administration to pay for the medical and retraining costs, right? Budget cuts and sequestration was all Obama’s fault, right?

          • Rodney Steward

            I didn’t say PTSD didn’t exist before the part time muslim boy! I just said the VA has gotten worse, they’re killing them with medication! I’ve got a friend that has just come home from the sand lands, and right off the bat they told him he had a bad problem and they gave him 3 types of MEDS! And like he told me, I don’t have a problem, but look what the bottle says, all 3 said, May Cause Suicidal thoughts! The black boy pulled the sequester bullshi$!

      • Donald Wilson

        If he does he is starting DOWN the path of breaking his pledge with the people. Will have to wait and see. If he does there will be a lot of pissed off people.

      • Donald Wilson

        If Trump does not repeal Obamacare as well as Common Core he is violating some of the carry campaign promises that got him elected. It is understandable that every promise made may not be kept; however, he must do everything within his power to keep those campaign promises.

        • I Seigel

          That’s pretty much the same thing you said 2 weeks ago in reply to the same comment. We’ll see how things develop.

        • I Seigel

          Well Donald, it looks like the strategy that’s shaping up is that you’ll get your repeal of Obamacare almost immediately after Trump takes office. BUT the repeal is only a technicality – to show they’re actually accomplishing something. The repeal will actually be delayed several years until Republicans come up with a replacement. They’ve had 6 years to come up with an alternate plan, and they STILL have nothing. Imagine.
