There is a congressional approval aspect.

Uhhhh ... to be honest and fair ... not necessarily.


There is no mention of Congress at all. Few, if any of his EOs even mention Congress. It is as though it does not exist to him, or at least that they are there to follow his orders.

LOL ... you really don't know much about this subject at all, do you?

Yep, whatever an agency didn't spend from their budget could just be wrapped up into a tidy little check 'for a job well done'.


This is actually a standard practice in the private sector. I suspect Trump will come down hard on it because he ants to get his cut.

A lot more than you and Trump put together. Has Trump submitted any legislation to Congress yet? No?

We're not talking about the private sector though, are we?

Trump has said he wants to run the country like a business, hasn't he?

He's used the E,O.to fulfill some of his campaign promises.

Some of them without checking their constitutionality.

Yeah ... unfortunately I think Trump has already served his most useful purpose (defeating Hillary at the polls). The guy's conservative facade is only skin deep. Underneath that is a mixture of liberal narcissism and .01%er. We're still in a heap of trouble as a country. Trump's biggest obstacle will be getting rid of people (like Mattis) who won't put up with any of his BS.

So ... if you look around and spot those people, expect EOs ... up the whazoo ... to keep them in-check. Considering whom he had to appoint to appease the GOP ... we can expect lots of EOs. This also depends on him keeping an EO writer that's up to the task. He's toothless without this tool and I think he/we may regret his VP pick sooner, rather than later.

The ban on Muslim immigration. It is already working its way through the courts. It also involves one of his many conflicts of interests, but that's a subject for another thread.

I've sourced in another thread that he was within his duties as POTUS as laid out by congress. As far as conflicts of interest.....possibly.

Its the mudpit, so im going to be honest: the OP is such an avowed liberal partisan that I can't take anything in the OP seriously without looking at prior administrations for context. Im not going to do that, as if the OP really cared about truth he would have done a bit of that leg work, too (he's the one outraged).

So since I only marginally care about this to begin with...is what Trump did here par for the course? In my mind, it should be.

He's just following your dear leaders legacy of pen and phone politics.

Of course I have. Although there have always been waiver clauses, the decision did not rest solely with the President and there were specific circumstances that needed to be met. Trump can do it without consul or reason. Obama's was actually cited on the first page. Do you want all of them posted?

Face it, America slipped into such a state over the last couple of decades or three that we need a dictatorship to correct things.

Trump is perfect for the job.

It's still not going to fix it all, the tards that really steer the ship would rather capsize than relinquish control. It's still going to make for great entertainment. Why does everyone seem to be panicked about this? We knew it was inevitable by the latter Bush administration.

Thank you for your honesty. Have a star.

No he is not. His narcissism and tendency towards magical thinking make him a Mussolini or Hitler, not a Tito or Castro.
