500 Days of Winning, here are 2 lists of President Trump’s accomplishments

You won’t find the media telling you any good news about President Trump (or America), so the White House put out their own list of the Trump administration’s major accomplishments. Since CNN is currently camped outside a strip club in Biloxi, Mississippi waiting for Stormy Daniels to weigh in on Trump’s impending impeachment, and Pravda On The Hudson is digging through Robert Mueller’s trash in the hopes of finding a smoking memo, I’ll help you guys out and summarize the list.

First up, massive tax cuts! What’s not to like about that? (Nancy Pelosi, please don’t answer.)

Then we see zillions of federal regulations are being slashed! The Trump Doctrine: They’re from the government and they’re here to leave you alone.

President Trump is well on the way to rebuilding our military, including new aircraft carriers and increased missile defense.

President Trump is taking care of our veterans, installing Real Accountability at the heretofore dysfunctional VA. Is it perfect yet? Nope. But there’s a path, and a plan, and for the first time in a very long time, hope.

On his signature issue — enforcing immigration laws — President Trump is delivering the goods. The DoJ is cracking down on sanctuary cities, prototypes of The Wall are going up on our southern border, deportations are up and illegal entries are down. And MS13 is feeling the heat with law enforcement cracking down on them daily.

The federal judiciary is rapidly reshaping into a bastion of constitutional conservativism, not just at SCOTUS with Neil Gorsuch but at the Appellate and District levels too. I gotta let Mitch McConnell share some of the credit for this, he took Harry Reid’s nuking of Senate precedent and ran with it. Judicial confirmations in Trump’s first year exceeded that of any other president ever.

Is the economy booming, or what? Unemployment is at an all-time low. Consumer confidence is at a 17 year high, and workers are taking home more money in their paychecks.

And last, but not least, the EPA put out their own list of achievements, highlighting their role in making America great again. We’re out of the ridiculous Paris Climate Accords. The inaptly named Obama-era “Clean Power Plan” is gone, and the puddles in your driveway are no longer regulated as “Waters of the United States.” Fracking is booming and the US is now a net exporter of oil and natural gas. Left-wing zealots are no longer setting environmental policy and there are no more “sue and settle” slush funds greasing their sleazy palms. The Keystone XL pipeline is humming, unattainable auto mpg standards are rolled back, and scientists set policy instead of “activists.”

All in all it’s been an excellent start for President Trump. And no, I’m still not tired of winning.

Obama’s energy jobs double standard

So-called “green jobs” count 17 times. Even if the company goes tits up and takes the taxpayers “green” with it.

But actual Real Jobs in the here and now? They don’t count if they’re associated with Keystone XL.

President Obama doubled down Tuesday on his claim that the Keystone XL oil pipeline would create just a handful of jobs, despite being hammered by Republicans and fact-checkers alike for the claim.

“They keep on talking about this — an oil pipeline coming down from Canada that’s estimated to create about 50 permanent jobs. That’s not a jobs plan,” Obama said.

In citing the 50-jobs number, though, the president was using the smallest possible number attached to the pipeline project. The estimate he used likely refers to a State Department finding that — after the pipeline is built — it would take roughly 50 people to maintain it.

But the comment ignores the rest of the State Department report that estimates the project would create nearly 4,000 annual construction jobs — and potentially “support” an annual 42,000 jobs.

A Washington Post fact-check column on Tuesday questioned why the administration would ignore its own numbers.

Because ignoring them advances the anti-energy, anti-people, anti-American agenda espoused by the radical econuts, that’s why.

Cheap fossil fuels are bad.

Expensive “green” energy is good.

And if real people have to freeze in the dark? That’s just the price America has to pay to save Mother Gaia.

What is the carbon footprint of a pizza that’s delivered to the White House from St. Louis?

Because President CO2 Cutter flew in 20 pizzas last month for himself and some friends. Special delivery, direct from St. Louis, Missouri. 860 miles, more or less.

Apparently you can’t get good take-out in DC.

As Instapundit is fond of saying, I’ll believe this whole CO2 causes Global Warming thing is really a problem when the guy telling me it’s a problem starts acting like it’s a problem.

Until then, he’s just spewing hot air.
