Would it kill you to every once in a while play a little Foghat?
Wow, you're really embarrassing yourself now. The best possible outcome for you is that drumpf is 100% right, and you guys caught the NYT posting fluff. Nobody cares.
When the president of the USA lies publicly, especially about something as inconsequential as inauguration attendance numbers, it matters. When a news site posts fluff to stir up its readers and get clicks, it's a normal day.
From the link you posted: "the overall number of players in attendance had dropped — nearly 50 in 2015 compared to 34 on Wednesday — the overall team delegation was roughly the same size".
It matters when a President lies.
But..but..but.. The press is the guardian of democracy..and all that which is good and honorable.. Or some shit like that.
I bet people still corner you and steal your lunch money, don't they?
Oh and mind your own fucked up country.
So, it matters when Obama lies, or the New York Times, but not when trump lies? Because he has lied more than any US president, and just about anyone on the planet. When he was awarded Lie of the Year in 2015 they just said "fuck it, pick one".
You're flailing hopelessly.
Why is it that your first defense of this idiot is always "obama did it!"? Obama was the worst president ever. This one is the best. Why is he indefensible, even for a dancing monkey like you?
Do you even think about the bullshit you post before you hit the enter key?
Hey motherfucker! O-Zero spent 8 years whining and complaining about GWB so we will remind everyone what an abject failure Barry was especially since he is only 3 months removed from the job.
And yes, I will remind you of the hypocrisy of liberal scum like you when you require immigrants to " share Australian values" to emigrate.
You suck, your ideas suck, eat a bowl of dicks.
Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:
* FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
* SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);
* THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;
* FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;
* FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;
* SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
On the same day, I will begin taking the following 7 actions to protect American workers:
* FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
* SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
* THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator
* FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately
* FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars' worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
* SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
* SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America's water and environmental infrastructure
Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law:
* FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama
* SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States
* THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities
* FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won't take them back
* FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:
Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.
End The Offshoring Act. Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.
American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.
School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to give parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.
Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.
Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.
End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.
Restoring Community Safety Act. Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.
Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values
Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.
On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government.
This is my pledge to you.
And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people.
drumpfs pledge 3 weeks before the election. http://www.npr.org/2016/11/09/501451...first-100-days
And now that we're approaching 100 days with ZERO real achievements, this recent tweet - “No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!”
Nobody knew presidenting could be so complicated!!!
Yeah, who knew?
As the 100-day mark of his presidency approaches, President Barack Obama has broken six promises, according to a PolitiFact analysis. That's a small portion of the 514 promises we're tracking, but the six represent some of Obama's key campaign themes.
Three are about taxes, two about transparency and ethics, and one deals with international diplomacy. We asked the White House press office for comments on them, but they have only made a statement about one, on the comment period for pending legislation.
Here's a recap of the six broken promises and where they stand. You can find more details and sources by clicking each promise.
Transparency and ethics
No. 240: Tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials . We realize Obama probably will argue that he kept this promise. Among his first acts in office, he signed an executive order banning former lobbyists from working on matters they had lobbied on during the previous two years. But the order also included a waiver clause that the administration could invoke whenever it deemed it necessary. There was also the less rigorous standard of "recusal," which the administration used to avoid issuing formal waivers. After looking at how waivers and recusals were handled over his first three months, we concluded the promise was broken.
No. 234: Allow five days of public comment before signing bills . Obama broke this promise on his 10th day in office when he signed his first piece of legislation, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The law itself, which was intended to remedy some cases of pay discrimination, was retroactive, so there was no rush. But Obama still didn't wait five days to sign it. The White House said it intends to keep the promise after working out " implementation procedures." We're still waiting.
The tax promises
No. 24: End income tax for seniors making less than $50,000 . When Obama made this promise back in 2008, tax experts criticized it as poor policy. Seniors who rely primarily on Social Security already pay little or no taxes, they said, while other seniors have economic advantages — for example, pensions and paid-off homes — over younger Americans. This promise appears to have been quietly dropped. (We're poised to move the meter if it ever is revived.) We rated it Promise Broken after Obama failed to include it in either the economic stimulus or his 2010 budget outline. And Obama didn't mention it in his Tax Day speech.
No. 505: Create a $3,000 tax credit for companies that add jobs . Obama talked about this proposal late in the campaign as a remedy to the economic collapse, but it had little or no support in Congress. Lawmakers said the credit wasn't enough of an incentive, and tax policy analysts said it would be an administrative nightmare to implement. We rated it Promise Broken when it failed to make the economic stimulus package in February.
No. 508: Allow penalty-free hardship withdrawals from retirement accounts in 2008 and 2009 . This promise has gone nowhere. It has little or no support in Congress and it shows no signs of life. We rated it Promise Broken right before 2008 taxes came due.
The Armenian Genocide
No. 511: Recognize the Armenian genocide . Obama visited Turkey and was asked about the period between 1915 and 1923, when historians say the actions of the Ottoman Empire resulted in the deaths of 1.5 million Armenians. During the campaign, Obama said he considered that genocide and promised to recognize those events with that word. But when he got to Turkey, he declined to use the word, though in a bit of legalistic phrasing, he did say his views hadn't changed. We ruled that the essence of the promise was to use the word "genocide," and Obama took a pass. A few weeks later, he issued a proclamation on April 24, a day of memorial for the Armenian genocide. Again he said his views hadn't changed, but did not use the word "genocide."
In addition to the six ratings of Promise Broken, we've rated another three promises Stalled. These promises don't seem to be going anywhere at the moment, but we have reasons to think they may not be completely dead. Those are No. 293, Call for repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy ; No. 407, Limit subsidies for agribusiness ; and No. 446, Enact windfall profits tax for oil companies . We'll be monitoring these to see if and when the ratings need to be moved. Stay tuned.
Finally, Obama has earned seven ratings of Compromise, which means he agreed to settle for a portion of what he'd promised to achieve. Mostly, these are for promises where he either had to accept smaller initiatives than he had proposed, or the deal he struck didn't meet all the criteria he set out in his promises. For example, he proposed a tax credit of $500 for workers (Promise No. 32), but Congress only went along for $400. Same with No. 257, the American Opportunity Tax Credit : He wanted a tax credit for college students worth $4,000, but only got $2,500. He also accepted compromises with Congress for No. 5, Expand the earned income tax credit , and No. 3, Eliminate capital gains taxes for small businesses and start-ups .
Among the other Compromise promises:
No. 434: Set a three-month moratorium on foreclosures . Obama asked for voluntary foreclosure moratoria, but it wasn't a hard and fast three months.
No. 512: Go "line by line" over earmarks to make sure money being spent wisely . We found that the economic stimulus bill was largely free of earmarks but an omnibus spending bill leftover from 2009 sure wasn't.
No. 515: No family making less than $250,000 will see "any form of tax increase." We found his tax policies have so far largely kept this promise, but he approved a tax on cigarettes that could affect people of all incomes.
I guess dissent is going to be the truest form of patriotism again. It's kind of funny because for the last eight years dissent has been racism.
The thing I remember most was Bill getting caught by Hiliary staring at supposedly the Trump women
