Donald Trump had a very busy first week in office. He started work on the day he was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. First thing he did was sign an Executive Order to take away some tax burdens for people who have to pay a penalty for not having health insurance. He also pushed ahead on the long stalled XL Pipeline, clamped down on immigration and took the first steps to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Trump also made the claim that “three to five million” illegal votes were cast in the 2016 election, and that cost him the popular vote. The mainstream media (MSM) basically called him a sore winner and a liar and said there was no evidence of voter or election fraud. So, Trump ordered an investigation to get evidence of widespread fraud.
How could anyone think there was voter fraud? Well, the leader of the Democrat Party, President Obama, encouraged the 11 million illegal aliens in the U.S. to vote in the 2016 election. He told them, “When you vote, you are a citizen yourself.” Which is not true, and it is totally illegal for noncitizens to vote. There are plenty of studies that claim millions of illegal aliens vote in every election and that those votes can swing a close contest in favor of Democrats, as it did in 2008. My bet is the investigation that President Trump is ordering will uncover “three to five million votes” that were illegally cast. Trump intends to curtail illegal immigration and illegal voting at the same time.
More fake news was pumped out by the MSM on the MLK bust being removed from the Oval Office and replaced with a bust of Winston Churchill. It was totally untrue, and I think the fake story was meant to make the Trump Administration look like racists. The MLK bust is still in the Oval Office and never left.
Some real news that is under reported this week came from former U.S.S.R leader Mikhail Gorbachev. He is quoted in Time Magazine saying, “It all look as if the world is preparing for war.” Hope he’s wrong, but he was the leader of a super power that is nuclear armed.
