Two Cheers, One Jeer for the Trump Régime

  • Cheer One: speaking just now of "Conservativism and Conservationism," here's some very good news — Trump Executive Order on National Monuments Aims to Give Federal Land Back to The American People. Thus spake our president, "Today I'm signing another executive order to end an egregious abuse of executive power and give that power back to the states and the people where it belongs."

  • Cheer Two: even the Old Grey Lady starts with an honest lede on the "proposed sharp reductions in both individual and corporate income tax rates, reducing the number of individual income tax brackets to three — 10 percent, 25 percent and 35 percent — and easing the tax burden on most Americans, including the rich" — White House Proposes Slashing Tax Rates for Individuals and Businesses.

  • Jeer One: "If the 60 million Koreans, North and South, were raptured up to heaven, how would America be imperiled?" asked Pat Buchanan in "More Troops—or Less Empire" more than ten years ago, something that was a true then as it is now and was 67 years ago when we first got involved in this mess, something our first "America First" president should understand — U.S. Inches Closer to Military Crisis with North Korea.

  • Okay, here's another jeer — Trump’s Wikileaks Flip-Flop / Prosecution of Assange is Persecution of Free Speech

  • So, I guess one-hundred days in I'm two-thirds or one-half pro-Trump, the rest against him, pretty much divided between domestic and foreign policy. Disappointed, not surprised, still hopeful.
