    So who's watching the Academy Awards this year?

    Not me.

    I will watch the cheesy E channel to look at the dresses.

    I would like to see the viewer numbers go down for the show, that you know, will be political.

    I don't need political in my entertainment

    President Donald J. Trump’s First Month: Achieving Results for the American People



    FEBRUARY 20, 2017 AT 11:38 AM ET BY THE WHITE HOUSE

    After one month in office, President Donald J. Trump is already achieving results for the American people.

    Jump starting Job Creation: President Trump is looking out for American workers that Washington has left behind.


    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum ordering the United States to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations and agreement
    • Hosted the CEO of Intel to announce Intel’s plan to invest $7 billion in a United States factory that will create 10,000 American jobs
    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum to clear roadblocks to construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline Signed a Presidential Memorandum declaring that the Dakota Access Pipeline serves the national interest and initiating the process to complete construction
    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum ordering that all new pipeline construction and repair work use materials and equipment from the United States
    • Signed legislation, House Joint Resolution 38, to block the burdensome Stream Protection Rule from causing further harm to the coal industry
    • Signed legislation, House Joint Resolution 41, to eliminate a costly regulation that threatened to put domestic extraction companies and their employees at an unfair disadvantage


    Saving Taxpayers Money: President Trump is fighting to save Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars.

    • Saved Americans $700 million on a new batch of F-35 fighters
    • Capped the cost of Boeing’s next-generation Air Force One fleet at millions below that which was agreed to by the Obama administration


    Restoring Public Safety: President Trump will work to reduce the threats of crime and illegal immigration to public safety.

    • Signed an Executive Order to enhance the safety and security of the United States by, among other things, constructing a wall on the southern border
    • Signed an Executive Order to make sure Federal immigration laws are faithfully enforced throughout the country and that Americans’ tax dollars do not go to jurisdictions that obstruct the enforcement of immigration laws
    • Signed an Executive Order that directs the Attorney General to develop a strategy to more effectively prosecute people who engage in crimes against law enforcement officers
    • Signed an Executive Order that establishes a task force, led by the new Attorney General, to reduce crime and restore public safety in communities across America
    • Signed an Executive Order that re-focuses the Federal Government’s energy and resources on dismantling transnational criminal organizations, such as drug cartels


    Getting Government Out of the Way: President Trump understands that excessive regulations stifle job-creation and harm our businesses.

    • Signed an Executive Order instructing Federal agencies “to minimize the burden” of the Affordable Care Act Required that for every new Federal regulation, two existing regulations be eliminated
    • Directed the Commerce Department to streamline Federal permitting processes for domestic manufacturing and to reduce regulatory burdens on domestic manufacturers
    • Signed an Executive Order expediting the environmental review and approval processes for domestic infrastructure projects


    An America First Foreign Policy: The President’s first priority is the safety and security of the American people.

    • Department of the Treasury sanctioned 25 entities and individuals involved in Iran’s ballistic missile program
    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum directing the Secretary of Defense to work with other Cabinet members to develop a plan to defeat ISIS
    • Called or met with more than 30 foreign leaders


    Draining the Swamp: President Trump has taken action to ensure that all members of his Administration are working for the American people.

    • Signed an Executive Order establishing new ethics commitments for all Executive branch appointees, putting in place a five-year lobbying ban and a permanent ban on lobbying for foreign governments, so appointees serve the American people instead of their own interests
    • Put in place a hiring freeze for Federal civilian employees to stop the growth of a bloated government


    Keeping His Promise to Defend the Constitution: President Trump promised a Supreme Court justice in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

    • Nominated Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court because of his consistent record defending the Constitution


    Helping Women Succeed in Business: President Trump knows the country cannot reach its potential unless every American has a chance to prosper.

    • Launched the United States-Canada Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders


    President Trump has spent the last 30 days fulfilling promises and helping the American people.

    He’s looking forward to the many more successful months and years of action to come.

    Wow, thanks. I knew he had accomplished much but not this much. The man is on a mission - and I like it.

    Since I've never been into Hollywood/celebrities, I don't watch award shows. (With the exception of the CMAs and even that I haven't bothered with the last two years since they are no longer "country".)

    my daughter went to college in north texas, where the new "real" country singers always come to start out. even the radio station is seriously "real" country singers. she is only 24 and hates all the pop country songs.

    I'm still stuck on Mel Tillis, George Jones, Patsy Cline, etc

    One good thing about living in Podunk - our local station, while it does play the new pop crap, does play lots of real, old country. Good for your daughter!

    LOL. And that meme goes for all foreigners here who take advantage of all we have to offer but don't become citizens - and worse - disparage America and our ways and culture at the same time. Blech.

    The resistance: Rogue Twitter accounts fuel rebellion against Trump​

    What began with a few posts about climate change on a National Park Service Twitter handle has morphed into an army of rogue social media accounts — ensuring the revolution will not in fact be televised, rather it will be tweeted.

    In the weeks since the Badlands National Park Twitter account went off script Jan. 24, when a former employee defied a Trump administration order to cease external communications and posted several tweets about climate change, dozens of rogue government accounts have sprouted — each seeking to fuel rebellion against the president’s policies and actions.

    Ranging from “alternative” Justice and State department handles to @RoguePotusStaff, the Twitter accounts vary in tone, message and backstory.

    Some present themselves as a form of resistance in message only, posting quips critical of the Trump administration, links to news reports or copies of government documents already in the public record.

    But others claim to be something more — resistance from within the administration in the form of rogue employees of various agencies who hope to spread the message about what’s going on behind closed doors.

    Sociologists who study protest movements say that while the authenticity of the accounts’ “rogue” status could be critical in their individual relevance and staying power, they collectively are building a new informational structure that appears to be playing a crucial role in the growing resistance movement.

    They'd be better off putting their time and energy into MAGA. What a shame.

    The Obama administration's guidance was based on its interpretation of Title IX, the federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
    Mr Obama argued that protection extended to gender identity.
    And that was the problem - the laws for protection against sexual discrimination have zero to do with "gender identity" IMO. I'm thankful Trump is reversing this so children can once again enjoy their privacy without the opposite sex present.


    "Reversing this guidance tells trans kids that it's OK with the Trump administration and the Department of Education for them to be abused and harassed at school for being trans."
    Wow, what a spin. Where do they get that reversing this is a license to abuse and harass anyone at school?

    I am very happy Trump is reversing this order. The unhinged liberals are the ones spinning this into something it isn't. Obama's order infringed upon the rights of the majority of our population to satisfy the needs of a very small minority of the population.

    Are you talking about all of the auto RSS feeds that Blaize has set up? I couldn't keep up so I just decided to post anything I have to say here (on this thread). I don't think the mods care????

    Well yes that too, but it seems one has to start a new thread for every topic. That could get miles long. Why not have one general discussion thread for all topics?

    Why don't you ask the mods or just start a new thread maybe entitled Presidency of Donald J. Trump or something generic like that?
