My gut feeling is Trump and the GOP are just going to keep fucking Democrats up, the rest of us will suffer for it. I have no idea what nixing the TPP was supposed to do, but it damn well is going to pull in leftists into thinking, "Well, shucks, let's make the best of this thing."

I really wish history lessons in US schools had been more thorough.

Trumpster froze all environmental regulation changes in the works, which means that even though we'd like to ##-elided-## because environmental conditions are more favorable this year, we can't. This scenario is playing out at agencies all over the country.

Sad trombone.

EDIT: Turns out that was not yet public knowledge. If you read it, please forget it. I left the dots intact, I'm just not allowed to connect them for you.

Trump just reversed the DAPL executive order.

My knowledge of USA politics is mostly gleaned from TV and movies, but I seem to recall people saying the presidency is mostly a figurehead position and doesn't have tons of power. Please someone tell me that's true.

Please?

That was the intention behind the office. It wasn't until Andrew Jackson came alone and decided this final check in the system of government needed to Also be the masthead for what it means to be American. He turned it from a clerical and military position to that of an interchangeable secular monarchist, more or less, IMO.

And now, with the executive powers established during the Bush era, and even though they decried executive power abuses by Obama who didn't invent them but made good use,  Trump now has the ability to make very serious and consequential decisions.

For example, the executive order that will prevent funding to any organization that even uses the word "abortion" OR pushing the Dakota Pipeline through.

Sadly, not anymore. Let me give you a sense of what we're dealing with; what Nixon was impeached for isn't even illegal anymore.

Andrew Jackson, America's racist golden boy. What poetry there is that he opened the door for so many of Trump's upcoming abuses!

Trump has signed an executive order extremely increasing vetting procedures against people from a variety of Middle Eastern states.  Extra measures for refugees are set to be announced at a later date.

He doesn't, not really.  At least not in this case.  However, he is the puppet of Ryan & Co, and the office of the president has ceased to exist aside from being a rubber stamp for everything Ryan and McConnell ever fapped about.

Instead of thinking of an out of control president, think of an evil congress with no brakes.
