List Of Day-One, Trump Executive Orders

Donald Trump, Economy, Energy, IMMIGRATION, Islam

No mention of The Wall, or protections against an ongoing influx of Islam:

* A notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans Pacific Partnership
* Cancel restriction on the production of American energy, clean coal included.
* For every regulation, two will be eliminated. (Why is the cancellation of bad regulation predicated on creation of new regs?)
* Develop right away a plan to prevent cyber attacks and other attacks on vital infrastructure.
* Immigration: Investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut American workers. (But many of the programs do just that by definition. See “Why Aren’t The H-1B Hogs Satisfied With The O-1 “Extraordinary Ability” Visa?”)
* Five-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after they leave office. Lifetime ban on the same sorts lobbying a foreign government.

The New York Slimes Dismisses Trump’s Role In Ford’s Decision To Stay

Business, Donald Trump, Economy

The New York Slimes is dismissing Donald Trump’s role in Ford’s decision to “keep an automaking plant in Kentucky.” It’s par for the course.

Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter shortly after 9 p.m. that Ford’s chairman, William Clay Ford Jr., had just told him that Ford “will be keeping the Lincoln plant in Kentucky — no Mexico.”
Minutes later, Mr. Trump wrote in a second post: “I worked hard with Bill Ford to keep the Lincoln plant in Kentucky. I owed it to the great State of Kentucky for their confidence in me!” Mr. Trump won 62.5 percent of the state’s popular vote in the presidential election.
During the campaign, he repeatedly criticized Ford for moving production to Mexico, and he threatened to impose a 35 percent tariff on vehicles made there.

At play, I suspect, is the phenomenon I described in “Trump’s Not Yet President, But Nieto Is Saying, ‘Si Se Puede’”:

“… a show of unparalleled strength and patriotism—Mr. Trump’s—extinguished a bad habit [Ford’s]. The biblical proverb (generously paraphrased) worked: Act like a fearless lion before an adversary, and the adversary will retreat.”

The force of Trump, as I ventured in The Trump Revolution, is changing reality on the ground.

Where Are The Trump Ads About America’s Dire Economic Indices?

Business, Donald Trump, Economy, Hillary Clinton, Labor

The participation rate in the economy is the lowest since the 1970s. Not since World War II have so many able-bodied American men of working age been out of the work force. Wages have declined commensurate with declining productivity, brought about by a lack of investment. In other words, if business operations are not well-capitalized and equipped with the latest technology; productivity will naturally decline.
New businesses are struggling to get off the ground.

These facts, discussed on The Journal Editorial Report this weekend, should be the stuff of non-stop Donald Trump ads, aired across the country.

Where are these Trump ads, pointing out that Hillary Clinton is clueless about economics. All Clinton grasps is government, the language of force.
