Why Obama's legacy is so easily reversible



It brings a smile to my face to read one article after another detailing how President Obama's legacies can be so easily undone by Donald Trump. The reason why so many of Obama's initiatives can be undone is because so many of them were done without authorizing legislation. Obama acted unilaterally and the Congress, composed of timid Republicans, never mustered up the courage to object.

But because Obama acted unilaterally, often even illegally with insufficient authority, many of his actions can be reversed without even requiring authorizing legislation.

Let's take a look at a few:

1) The Iran Deal. The deal with Iran to supposedly curb its nuclear enrichment was never submitted to the US Senate for ratification, as it was supposed to. That means that any succeeding President can simply ignore it.

2) The Paris Climate Deal. Obama signed the Paris Climate Accord committing the US to reduce production of greenhouse gases to reduce imaginary man-made global warming. Trump has indicated he wants to pull out of this treaty, but liberals claim the treaty requires Trump to give four years advance notice before quitting. However, since this treaty, like the Iran deal, was also never submitted to the US Senate, the United States is not bound to it, and Trump can simply disregard it, without any need for action from the Congress.

3) Obama's Clean Power Plan, which would effectively shut down many coal and gas fired power plants, was put into effect with an EPA regulation; no law was ever passed giving the EPA such sweeping authority. Trump's new EPA director can cancel it immediately. Trump can also open up new areas for oil exploration which were ruled off limits by Obama, again without legislation to back him up.

4) Obama's amnesty to children of illegal aliens (DACA). This too was implemented by executive order, and can be cancelled immediately.

5) Obama took the "work" out of workfare through an executive order, allowing people to once again get welfare without having to work. That aso was the act of an easily reversible executive order.

6) Obama allows the so-called "Transgendered" to serve in the military, and has threatened schools which do not allow boys in girls' bathrooms. These too are easy to reverse.

Ironically if Obama had acted legally and gotten these measures approved by Congress, as he rightly should have, Trump might have had more difficulty getting all these measures overturned, especially in a closely divided Senate where 60 votes are often required to avoid a filibuster. But since Obama acted unilaterally, much of his legacy is as durable as Hillary Clinton's lead in Pennsylvania.

I was struck how Donald Trump, in his first ever meeting with President Obama, remarked how he was supposed to have met with Obama for only 15 minutes but actually met with him for an hour and a half.

A must-read: Muslim Trump voter unloads on Democrats and radical Islam


For a long time I've been critical of the Muslim community, much of whom seems to revel in victimhood status even when it's clear that they are not the victims of anything. Meanwhile a substantial number of their coreligionists are slaughtering people by the thousands, including, from time to time, Americans, and they don't seem to have any public opinions about that.

Hijabis furious over TSA patdowns


Under Sharia Law, unrelated men are not allowed to touch veiled women (unless they are sex slaves being raped, or women being beaten for walking outside the home, or women having their clitorises cut off). You can therefore understand why Sharia-compliant hijabis are outraged at being pat down by the TSA when they go to board planes.

What you may not know is that Rudy has an extensive history of dressing as a woman: here is a list of highlights of his public appearances as such:

The striking thing about the series of American Muslim viewpoint articles published yesterday is that we see them complaining vociferously about the election of Donald Trump, while at the same time being completely silent about the dangers of radical Islam. It causes me to think that too many American Muslims have a bigger problem with Donald Trump than they do with radicalized Islam.
