Can Trump Roll Back the Power of the Presidency?

Donald Trump campaigned vigorously on promises of ripping up President Obama’s executive orders on guns, immigration, Cuba, and more. And while most conservatives will be happy to see him follow through on those promises, we should hope that he won’t go further than that and make a bad situation worse.

As president, Trump has a golden opportunity to erase the worst of the Obama legacy, which has nothing to do with Democrats/Republicans or conservatism/liberalism. It has to do with the presidency itself, which has become far too powerful and autonomous under the stewardship of our current leader. That’s not just bad for conservatives; it’s bad for the country’s commitment to democracy.

Our government was designed as a system of checks and balances. No one branch of the federal government should have an unchallenged say over the direction of the country. The Supreme Court, Congress, and the White House must work in tandem, but they must never become rubber stamps for each other. Nor must they become so powerful that the other two branches become obsolete.

President Obama, when facing difficulties in Congress, simply chose to write the law from the Oval Office. And while he has been stopped frequently by the courts, he has done immeasurable damage to the Constitution with his constant quest for more power.

Riding the high of this election, it will be tempting to cheer while Trump uses Obama’s tactics against the left. Republicans haven’t been in control of the White House since 2009, and we’ve got a lot of ground to make up.

This would be a tragic error. We have to remember: There will come a day when a Democrat is back in office, and we can’t afford to give that man more power than our current executive already has. We have to take the lead and start rolling back presidential power, and Congress needs to get serious about accepting their rightful role in our democracy.

One of Trump’s biggest perceived strengths is his ability to cut a deal. Many Americans want him to use that ability to get the wheels of Washington rolling again. If he can work through the congressional system to get things done and accept the outcome when he can’t, he will have done the country a greater service than he could with any imaginable executive order.

    • Thank you America for electing Trump. Now we have a fighting chance to get our country back.

      • From the man who would be king? When he is eclected, if he is elected, you may rue the day.

        • Right and you would rather have a deviant treasonous criminal who sold out our country and only sees it as a means to a hefty bank account? BTW two days before the election ( thank you wikileaks) the clintons transferred 1.8 billion dollars of clinton foundation money to the bank of Qatar . Qatar interestingly enough does not have an extradition treaty with the US.

          • Criminal?

            Case Name United States v. Fred C. Trump, Donald Trump, and Trump Management, Inc. FH-NY-0024

            Attorney Organization
            U.S. Dept. of Justice Civil Rights Division

          • Trump and his father were sued by the federal government for housing discrimination in the 1970’s for refusing to rent to blacks after an uncover investigation. They lost, signed a consent decree, and were forced to desegregate their properties, which they later violated.

          • Trump is being charged with fraud in connection with Trump University. Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General of New York, who is prosecuting Trump

          • Trump Tower was built using undocumented Polish laborers to demolish the building that previously stood on the site. Court documents show that for weeks, they were paid nothing.

          • Trump violated immigration laws in hiring foreign models for Trump Model Management

          • Trump’s charitable foundation has repeatedly broken IRS rules by making political contributions.

          • Trump is accused of bribing the Attorney General of Florida, Pam Bondi to drop her investigation of Trump University.

          • In 2007 and in 2012, Trump and his wife bought two gifts for themselves at charity events for his foundation, totaling $32,000, breaking IRS rules.

          • The Clintons make a living off of their foundation. Selling government favors pays very well!

          • LOOK UP NY STATE LAW GOVERNING CHARITIES.
            STOP MAKING A FOOL OF YPURSElF

          • They live off the foundation and their employees have high salaries. Do you think the cost of their private jet comes out of their own pockets? They won’t be getting big donations any more because they have no power. Your democrat party is in it’s final death throes. You can thank obama for his failed economic and foreign policies.

          • Wow, you have been well-brainwashed.
            Nothing you stated is true, not one word.

            The Clintons were very rich, long before the foundation came into being.

            Their income tax returns have been released. Suggest you check facts. Your lies embarass America.http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxvox/what-clintons-2015-income-tax-return-tells-us

          • Hillary said that after we left the WH they were dec broke so they din’t get rich until the started the foundation. Pay to play. The FBI is still investigating those Dog Patch Arkansas hillbillies and they haven’t completed the Weiner e-mails scandal either. The new DOJ will do something about it. Have you heard of Pizzagate? Uh oh!!

          • Why do you need to tell these lies?

            Why do you embarrass America this way?

            Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?

            Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

          • This is why you’re not honest, you’re deflecting because you can’t deny what I said.

          • Deflect?
            You are the one lying.

          • He is currently being charged with child rape in a case for which there is an eyewitness and credible information to support the claim.

        • The queen of Trolls has given her two cents worth.

        • Eclected – Verbalized past tense of eclectic? Selecting the best from a random availability of options? Well, the other option was Hillary, so we could have done far, far worse. She wouldn’t have been the first corrupt socialist to run a country – but Castro no longer has the job.

          • The Electoral College meets on Dec. 19.

            Congress will annouce the next President on Jan. 6.

            Trump has not yet been elected President.

            Your did not voted for your state’s Electors, not the President.

            Learn how your government functions.

          • Fetch AKLady!! FETCH!!!

          • Thank you.
            Your input is always welcome
            It says so much about you.

        • No one is king but God, so you don’t have to worry about that. We elected a leader, not a king.

          • There are many kings in this wotld.

            Don’t start with the religious mumbo-jumbo. The line between church and state will not be crossed in America.

          • It has already started with the founding of this nation. America was started as a Christian nation from the beginning and will remain that way even though the atheists want to change it. I will pray for you. Prayer always works. America will survive not because of people like you but Inot spite of people like you.

          • “The Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.”
            ~1797 Treaty of Tripoli signed by Founding Father John Adams

          • “In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own. It is error alone that needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.”
            ~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Horatio Spofford, 1814

          • “History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.”
            ~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson: in letter to Alexander von Humboldt, December 6, 1813

          • “The civil government functions with complete success by the total separation of the Church from the State.”
            ~Founding Father James Madison, 1819, Writings, 8:432, quoted from Gene Garman, “Essays In Addition to America’s Real Religion”

          • “Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.”
            ~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, letter to Dr. Thomas Cooper, February 10, 1814,

          • “In regard to religion, mutual toleration in the different professions thereof is what all good and candid minds in all ages have ever practiced, and both by precept and example inculcated on mankind.”
            ~Samuel Adams, The Rights of the Colonists (1771)

          • “It is contrary to the principles of reason and justice that any should be compelled to contribute to the maintenance of a church with which their consciences will not permit them to join, and from which they can derive no benefit; for remedy whereof, and that equal liberty as well religious as civil, may be universally extended to all the good people of this commonwealth.”
            ~Founding Father George Mason, Virginia Declaration of Rights, 1776

          • “I never liked the Hierarchy of the Church — an equality in the teacher of Religion, and a dependence on the people, are republican sentiments — but if the Clergy combine, they will have their influence on Government”
            ~Founding Father Rufus King, Rufus King: American Federalist, pp. 56-57

          • A general toleration of Religion appears to me the best means of peopling our country… The free exercise of religion hath stocked the Northern part of the continent with inhabitants; and altho’ Europe hath in great measure adopted a more moderate policy, yet the profession of Protestantism is extremely inconvenient in many places there. A Calvinist, a Lutheran, or Quaker, who hath felt these inconveniences in Europe, sails not to Virginia, where they are felt perhaps in a (greater degree).”
            ~Patrick Henry, observing that immigrants flock to places where there is no established religion, Religious Tolerance, 1766

          • I hope and pray that you find the Lord someday because eternity is going to be a fantastic adventure for those who know God and love him. This life is very short, but eternity is forever. God loves you just like he loves me and doesn’t wish for you to perish.

          • I have bad news for you, you have not found the Lord. You have just violated his second comandment.

            “Jesus said…Thou shalt love the Lord they God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.

            And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

            On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matt.22:37-40.

          • I have a news flash for you. I have found, known and loved the Lord since I was a very young child. I am now 68 years old, and there has never been one moment of doubt about his existence or power. Again, I will continue to pray for you that you will find the same God that I worship daily. Believe me, it’s a wonderful life having Him with you everyday.

          • And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Matt.22:38.

            Pray for your own soul. You are in great need.

          • I don’t have to pray for my own soul. It was saved a long time ago, when I was baptized at 12 years old. I’m just very concerned about yours. God doesn’t want anyone to be lost, and that includes you. I will continue to pray for you because that’s what Christians do and it’s my privilege to do that for you.

          • Judge not, least thee be judged … and found wanting.

            You have just shown that you are among trh “wanting”.

            That goes along with ‘take the moat out of your own eye.’

          • You’re wrong again. I’m just concerned about where you will spend eternity. Christians never have to doubt about where they are going once you leave this life.

          • 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. Matthew 7

          • I never said I was without sin. Of course I have done things that God did not approve of. You and everyone alive is guilty of that, but as I stated earlier to you, I was saved through faith. Obedience, and baptism. That was provided through Jesus Christ and the cross. That doesn’t make you perfect. It makes you a forgiven sinner.

          • “No religious doctrine shall be established by law.”
            ~Founding Father Elbridge Gerry, Annals of Congress 1:729-731

          • Always remember, One Nation, under GOD, and our currency, IN God WE Trust. Just a note: there’s only one and true living God and that’s the God of Christianity. All other religions believe in a God but it’s an idol god, not a spiritual God that Christians believe in. Our creator (God) is mentioned by our founding fathers in the Preamble.

          • “The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the Gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths, Doctrines, and whole cartloads of other foolish trumpery that we find in Christianity.”
            John Adams

          • . “We should begin by setting conscience free. When all men of all religions shall enjoy equal liberty, property, and an equal chance for honors and power we may expect that improvements will be made in the human character and the state of society.

          • “Have you considered that system of holy lies and pious frauds that has raged and triumphed for 1,500 years?”
            John Adams

          • “And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors.”
            Jefferson’s letter to John Adams, April 11 1823

          • “As I understand the Christian religion, it was, and is, a revelation. But how has it happened that millions of fables, tales, legends, have been blended with both Jewish and Christian revelation that have made them the most bloody religion that ever existed?”
            John Adams — letter to F.A. Van der Kamp, Dec. 27, 1816

          • “If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.”

          • “Knowledge and liberty are so prevalent in this country, that I do not believe that the United States would ever be disposed to establish one religious sect, and lay all others under legal disabilities. But as we know not what may take place hereafter, and any such test would be exceedingly injurious to the rights of free citizens, I cannot think it altogether superfluous to have added a clause, which secures us from the possibility of such oppression.”
            ~Founding Father Oliver Wolcott, Connecticut Ratifying Convention, 9 January 1788

          • YES,

            LETS GO BACK TO DROPPING ONE MILLION JOBS EVERY MONTH as we did under Bush.

            Or maybe you prefer
            SAINT REAGAN’S 288% INCREASE IN NATIONAL DEBT?

    • TOM, You scum bag, You are a douche bag!!!!

  2. THE COMMUNIST MEDIA IS FINISHED. THE COMMUNIST PARTY BY 2020 WILL NOT HAVE ONE REAL CHRISTIAN LEFT IN IT.

    • Sad but when we Americans were having the time of our lives communists here were plotting how to destroy all that. Makes you wonder if all communist thinkers want to be miserable and make us miserable with them?
      Misery loves company but don’t be taken in by their whining and actions to cripple happy people.

    • Have you read in the Bible how the early Christians acted? They gave everything they had to the leaders who then distributed it according to who needed it. Acts :35 NAS “and lay them at the apostles’ feet, and they would be distributed to each as any had need.” Sounds like the idea behind true Communism.

  3. Time for TRUMP to delete all these pen and phone power plays this BOY in the White House has attempted to write for himself to be KING and not the President he was elected to be.

    • Well maybe King Trump should wait until he is actually elected. Read the Constitution. The President is elected by the Electoral College. They do not meet until Dec, 19.

    • ReaperHD,
      THAT is one of the better ideas I have read. We ALL need to e-mail Mr. Trump and make this a CONSTANT suggestion. (even though I think he already has this in mind)
      Time to take our country BACK from the usurpers.

      • pappy450: I tweeted Mr. Trump about considering Mitt Romney for SOS, my suggestion is don’t do it. Romney is a “BACKSTABBER” and I said just that. He threw shit at Mr. Trump during the campaign he is two faced!!!

      • You mean the Congress you elected?

      • What Country? Who Country? I’VE away wanted to ask these Question of people That said (We are going to take OUR Country Back ) Call me any kind of name you want to, Make no Different to me.Just tell me What Country are you talking about? You can’t Insult me by calling me Names. I’M from the Jim Crow Era,Been there, Done that.

        • What Country? The one we HAD before OSCUMBAG got fraudulently “voted in”. If you haven’t looked at the debt. this a-hole has got us into, you are NOT listening to the news.This so-called “president” that more than likely YOU voted for, has run our country into the ground for his own personal pleasure, And has NOT helped “your” people as I have heard several times as the “race card” was being PLAYED over and over.

          • The question was, What Country? And you really don’t know who I voted for, Because our President is Africa American, You assume i Voted for him, No President has ever done much for Black People. Don’t mention ABE L.The different between our Current President and Black People in American, The President is African American, His People Wasn’t Slaves, My Ancestors Were Slave,Different Boat, Same Racism, The Race Card, As you say Was Played, Before you are i was born, It Call Chattel Slavery, Three Fifth of a Human Bing & Etc.And the Election of Mr Trump. Put the Icing on the Cake, As far as Racist concern. I’M Still asking the Questions. What Country are you talking about?

          • Maybe it is TIME for the BLACKS to start helping themselves. Like maybe NOT helping themselves to someone else’s goodies. There have been SEVERAL well known influential people that have taken the time to stop playing the “poor me”, “race card” and sucking OFF THE GOVERNMENT TEAT and actually did something with themselves.
            Ben Carson is one individual that comes to mind. I think if you had the opportunity to ask HIM he would have a Different take on OUR country. To get where you want in life, you don’t spend it “protesting” or boo-hooing on how BAD you have had it or want your “reparations” for CRAP that happened hundreds of YEARS ago.Take the time to get off your BUTT and MAKE it happen. (hard work and perseverance will do wonders) Have a nice DAY!

          • I knew one of you would take this Road Well if you want to go their Come at me with some Numbers on who getting all the Benefit in American, Don’t just throw out WORDS, Mentioning Ben Carson name mean nothing to most Black People like myself. His kind aways exit in our Community, Just like you are trying to say our Ancestors or their Decedents hasn’t work hard In American Which is a total UNTRUTH, I’m from the Jim Crow Era, Let me tell you a TRUTH My older brother Fought in world war 2, Come home with a Disease call Jungle Rot, After fighting for this country, He couldn’t get any Help, You know Why. His color in the ‘state’ of MISSISSIPPI, So don’t come on me with this thing about working, Concern Black People, Most Black People aways Work in this Country. Here something else Until Dr King, Black couldn’t get WALFER IN lots of STATE IN THE SOUTH, Look it up,Why not Protest There are 15 VETERAN in my Family, Who fought in every War that American Been in for that RIGHT. Why shouldn’t the Decedent of SLAVE get Reparations, Everyone else got IT ,

          • You need to go boo-hoo to someone and and someplace else. That is the standard mentality of “your kind” as you call them. You were NOT a slave, so stop thinking you DESERVE “special treatment” because of your COLOR. GET OVER IT and move on.
            My Father also fought in WW2 and HE came home also with some strange CRAP, but it didn’t stop him from GETTING a JOB and supporting US. He didn’t boo-hoo and want special treatment, like YOU, he just came home went to WORK and did his part to make sure we were fed and clothed and had a home. We never had welfare..We just had a FATHER that went to WORK. Have a nice life and Go post your garbage on a LIBERAL site that will agree with your BLATHER.

          • What!!!

          • I wasn’t going to REPLY, But since you seen to think ,I’m looking for sympathy from a people That Hang a 21year Pregnant Woman in a tree ,Cut her open, Baby fall out of HER, And use the baby as a football, STOMP TO Death, You JEST, Don’t get it twisted, Black People in American, Know Who They are, And To WHOM They belong Don’t want your are anyone Else Sympathy,

      • How do you email Trump? I do not participate on Twitter or Facebook (my wife won’t let me; I get in enough trouble on what I am signed into).

    • I agree. However, as long as Paul Ryan is the Speaker of the House, nothing will be done to stop illegal immigration, Amnesty, or the huge influx of Muslim Refugees. Paul Ryan will never allow anything to happen to his pets. In the Senate, Mitch McConnell is of the same mind as Paul Ryan. Their financial backers want these things to continue and they will as long as these two RINOs control the House and Senate.

      • The only way this ends is that we have local people who will run in the primaries against these CAREER POLITICIANS and then vote the new blood in. We don’t want LIBTURDS to take their place just new and better Conservative Blood to replace them.

      • Trump should kick them all out starting from Paul Ryan
        He is a backstabber#1
        Romney is out of questions
        He will help to ruin Trump presidency
        How dumb is Trump?

    • I am so very pleased that Mr.Trump is a business man, rather than a “professional politician”. I am praying that his presidency will reflect this difference.

    • You have not ben listening to what Trump says.
      You are in for a shock or two.

  4. President-elect will continue to need our prayers. Especially now with the efforts of hypocrite Clinton and company to keep him out of the White House.

    • Read the Constitution. The Electoral College elects the President. They do not meet until Dec. 19.

      • A mere formality, following the say of the people.

      • You are right. Yet Clinton and others are trying anyway to keep Trump out of the White House by way of the vote recount effort.

        • Shira Levin: Why do you reply to this idiot, when she says the same shit over and over that gives her the jollies and pushes your button, just block the “IT”!!! ANOTHER LIBTURD TROLL!!

        • She is a Obama and Clinton lover that can not come up with something new.

        • Yea, like they tried to do in Florida in 2000. Remember the hanging chads and the Democrats only wanted to recount Democrat controlled counties where they could conveniently find additional ballots in the trunk of autos as they did to Norm Coleman in Minnesota. That is what got the election of that weasel Al Franken. Luckily, In Florida, the US Supreme Court stepped in and told everyone they could not change the election laws after an election had taken place. The Democrats still say the Supreme Court had no authority to do what they did. Sore losers.

      • Here we go with the same old BS from the Queen of Trolls.

      • All I know if the Electoral College changes there vote, it will cause the next revolutionary war in this Country, the People have spoken & live with it. Put Hillary in jail & make her pay for what she tried to do to this Country!!!
        Oh yea, take George Soros with her!!

        • The Electoral Cillege has not voted yet.

          Thw Constitution says the People don’t get to choose.

          If you do not like the American Constitution, either start a Constitutional Amendemtnt or move somewhere else.

          There will be no war. That was done in the 1860s.
          It ended badly.
          Try it again, and it will end just as badly.

        • Progressive Republican

          Indeed, the people have spoken.

          And by over two million votes they have said they prefer Hillary over der Trumpenfurher.

          Live with it.

          • Yes, in seven states they overwhelmed Trump; per Obongo’s count, that means in fifty states, they lost!

          • NOT, take away the illegal aliens & dead people & the ones that voted 2 or 3 times & she did not!!

          • Progressive Republican

            Golly. A conservative perpetuating unfounded baseless unprovable lies.

            I’d have to be as big a liar as you and your latest god to even pretend to be surprised.

        • Again,I don’t understand why they have to vote again in the first place!

        • barnjoer: Why reply to the idiot, that is how she gets her jollies.

      • Back to your Obama butt licking and Hillary fart sniffing troll.

      • No kidding, come to TEXAS &. Read ours!!
        We are carting the other 49 States & the others like the US Virgen Islands & no telling how many more!!
        We don’t need the other’s to survive!!

        • I’ve been to Texas. You can keep it.
          I lived in Clovis, NM — you can have that too.
          I’ll stay up here in Alaska. Less bugs, less vermin, less crime, less people, better wages, better hunting …

  5. I think Trump should get a school book (eighth grade, maybe high school) that clearly explains HOW our three branches of government are suppose to work and then enact how it was originally designed to work.

  6. Drain the swamp!!

  7. But the Democrat-Socialist, if they get back in power, will disregard OUR Constitution, so until Laws ensure we won’t suffer another Obama, why not use Power to transform us BACK?

  8. I CALL IT CHRISTIAN LOVE. THE COMMUNISTS would love to take over Christianity. Imagine how many slaves they would use.? The only obstacle to communism is the love of God. Like Jesus said a man cannot serve two masters. He will love one and hate the other. He also said do not trust the demo commos. SAINT THOMAS’ EPISTLE TO THE LAS VEGIAN CAR CLUB VERSES 10W40.

  9. Trump 2016 my president !

  10. I have been cautious and up in the air just how effective he would be. Well he took care of that real fast.

    Futhermore, I think he is going to do what he stated more than ever “DRAIN THE SWAMP ACROSS THE BOARD”. Buearucrats need to start packing their bags as the end of the liberal DC nut factory is shutdown mode finally.

    Buearucrats were not careful yesterday and they always thought they would enjoy nevana status forever. Think again you albatross anchors on our near demise as the greatest nation.

    President elect Trump will kill as much as he can of obozo crap policies steeped in massive amounts of community organizing doltism. Moreover, this is the moment the recovery begins in earnest.

  11. I’m sorry ,but what party had congress 6 years(senate and house)majority ? Republicans. They would not pass anything the president asked for . They shut down the country and stopped any presidential nominee for Supreme Court. So, i dont feel any sympathy for them. Any time the Democrats tried to do bipartisan support the Republicans in the house and senate would not do it . I see the Republicans doing that again with democrats because they own the house and senate.

    • If you would read the Whole bill and not just the headline, maybe you would understand the garbage that always gets added. Both parties do it.

  12. And the presidency.

  13. Retired: I know both parties do it, but only the Republicans have not given even hearing or vote for Garland. And what makes it right for either party to hold the country hostage and play games. Now we have republican having all three houses for all least 4-8 years under trump and add the 6 years under obama for a grand total of 14 years. I think partisan politics has to stop and the three houses need to work together with democrats and republicans or we are held hostage in gridlock. I’m tired of it all.

  14. Barak Barry Hussein Obama Soetoro Sabarkah ruled our country in any way he chose and neither the congress, the supreme court or the people did very much to stop him or even slow him down. The congress is so preoccupied with collecting money that they abdicated their role as an equal one third of the government and by so doing gave barak the opportunity to become our emperor for almost eight years. Of course the fact that the RINO party devolved into another rubber stamp of approval for whatever BHO did made it very easy for him to assume the role of a king. RINOmcconnell, RINOboehner, and RINOryan have all been enablers for this president. President Trump may become the perfect president and adhere to the Constitution in every possible way; however, that doesn’t mean that the president who is appointed after him won’t become another obama.

  15. I just read that Trump might give Romney, Hillary’s old job. I wish he would give it to me, I could sure use all that money.

  16. The FIRST DAY in Office, TRUMP should write an XO negating every XO that the money Islamic Muslim idiot wrote and signed. Also Negate ALL the 81,000 + regulations the UNCONSTITUTIONAL and UN-ELECTED agencies WRITTEN and those they are writing and passing between now and the end of the Islamic Muslim pig’s time in office

  17. I think THE DON can take back the power of THE PRESIDENCY. And undo everything Obama did.
    It would be great.

  18. The biggest damage has been the corruption of the department of justice. No check and balance. Also the ability to not respond to FOIA requests is also unacceptable. I hope Trump can restore integrity and constitutional balance. If not, we will continue to decline. He needs to undo King Obama’s pen. Just look at the next issue that will happen before January 20. The forced import of refugees declined by Australia without proper vetting. Also the forced rural placement without any say by local communities.

  19. get rid of those stupid orders now.

  20. Google is paying 97$ per hour! Work for few hours and have longer with friends & family! !mj105d:

  21. While the article is right on target on most points, it misses the point that we are not a democracy, but a Constitutional Republic.

  22. I sure pray he can, President Obama used his pen like a drunken sailor

  23. Roll Back… “NOT”! Get up out of the rut,! Support him when he is Right & Not; when he is Wrong! ( Remember, We aren’t dealing with a Dumb woman! ).

  24. Paybacks are a MF’er, or should be – get that pen out Trump (if they don’t steal the election; should be REVOLT if so) and make sure it is full of ink!

  25. Having Trump is great. Now is a time for WE the PEOPLE to bring a lot of the power back State side. CONVENTION OF STATES!!

  26. President Trump will need to write one executive order. That executive order should cancel ALL orders of Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Obama, period!

  27. John Wesley Bletsch

    Donald can set the future example of a Constitutional POTUS who is actually eligible for the office. Rolling back every edict of Caesar is the perfect place to begin.

  28. If he fires coway and stops intimidating the networks and the print press he will have rolled back the power of the Presidency to the state of affairs under Carter.

  29. Surely someone kept a record of Obama’s iillegal edicts; just a matter of erasing each and every thing he signed; after a few months, he’ll be entirely and completely forgotten, as if he never existed!

  30. Trump needs to do the following: Issue executive orders as necessary making all of Obamas executive orders null and void. Then start issuing his own dealing with immigration, coal,guns, whatever is needed, and keep doing that through his presidency. Then at the end of 4 years or 8 years, whatever, his last executive order should be outlawing all future executive orders.

  31. President – Elect Trump will kick butt..

  32. A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT,TRUST THE MAN WE PUT IN
    OFFICE HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO.

  33. Trump needs to bring back the officers fired by the Illegal Muslim at least 150.

  34. Google is paying 97$ per hour! Work for few hours and have longer with friends & family! !mj358d:

  35. Trump has already demonstrated his ability to rise above us commoners. Money, private jets, beautiful women, and an ego big enough for any 10 men. You are all fools if you think this man, who already thinks himself king, is going to abdicate his throne. Would you? You should better be concerned about what he will do in his third term.

  36. The writer showed his ignorance of Donald Trump. Donald Trump is a pragmatist and as such is highly skilled in solving problems without creating others.

  37. Well… I can’t possibly see where he could do any worse than the HNIC right now. But wait folks, the HNIC isn’t finished yet! Mark my words, the faggot lil mooseslime has something tragic planned! He’s not going to walk away without one final screw job for the country!

  38. Just my thought…. but I’m willing to bet Mr Trump will seperate us from the UN…sp

  39. Yes, he certainly can roll back the power of the presidency. Any person elected to that office should, first of all, have a knowledge and appreciation for the prescribed procedures which the founders set forth in the constitution.
    “How a Bill Becomes A Law” was a fundamental, obligatory part of American History, Social Studies and Civics courses many years ago. We need to restore the proper functioning of the Congress to the fullest extent and people who are elected to the congress must never shirk the responsibility of the seriousness of deliberation which is theirs. It is the only thing that makes America a just, representative democracy within the framework of a constitutional republic. The law was formulated to make representation work. This is the essential truth concerning the electoral college, that the rule of law is never trumped by majority rule. The rule of law is never in limbo while the will of the majority is determined. The president is NOT the personification and embodiment of the law, its judge, jury and/or proxy-executioner. The obviation of deliberation by congress of matters, because it might delay the ordering into harm’s way of military personnel, is an obviation of the law. It is unrepresentative and it weakens the system and causes doubt and distrust on the part of the people. It is a congressional responsibility to be shared by the representation, regardless of the political cost at the polls or within partisan consensus. We would suffer far less waste, division and continual controversy over policies if people obeyed the law of the land and followed prescribed procedures, implicitly. The law is enforced by our obedience to it. Law enforcement exists to correct those who, mistakenly or willingly, disobey the law.
