President Donald Trump said in his inaugural address that he was tired of politicians who were all talk and no action.
Now he is showing them what action looks like.
Those who thought Trump's first 100 days would be jam-packed may have to rethink just how much this president will accomplish. It's looking like his campaign promises will be kept.
In his first 100 hours, give or take a few, Trump has put together a pretty impressive list of executive orders (thank you President Obama for showing us all how they are effectively done).
• Setting the wheels in motion to repeal Obamacare by easing its regulatory burdens;
• Freezing federal government hiring (except for military and critical public safety positions, i.e., border guards);
• Building a border wall;
• Reviving the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines;
• Streamlining the manufacturing permitting process;
• Withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership;
• Stripping funding from so-called "Sanctuary Cities";
• Directing the Commerce Department to come up with a plan to ensure American steel is used in pipelines;
• Speeding up environmental reviews on infrastructure projects;
• Preventing federal funds from going to organizations that provide abortions.
President Trump clearly means business, no pun intended. He told Americans what he was going to do and now he is quickly setting about doing those things.
The lightning speed with which he is doing them is something Americans are not used to seeing from their elected officials. But clearly, it won't be hard to get used to a President who is action oriented.
Trump's conservative agenda is right on the money. It is the perfect antidote for eight years of liberal foolishness under President Obama.
Jobs are already being created and there will be more to come once the flood of illegal immigrants is stopped.
Building the border wall is crucial here in California, where our Democrat-controlled legislature continues to try to afford those here illegally with the same rights of citizens. Illegal immigrants already can get driver's licenses, health care and in-state tuition at our colleges and universities.
This week, California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, D-San Diego, introduced legislation to allow undocumented day laborers to receive worker's compensation if hurt on the job.
First of all, it's illegal to hire illegals for day labor or any other position. Second, why should anyone in the country illegally be given the same rights as citizens?
California Democrats certainly will be crying over Trump's order to build the wall and to deport criminal immigrants here illegally. But by doing so, the president is making our state safer and will save taxpayers billions of dollars in coming years.
