President Trump Weekly Address: America is Recommitted to NASA’s Space Exploration

President Trump Hails NASA’s Space Exploration Spirit in Weekly Address

President Donald Trump used his weekly address Saturday (March 25) to praise NASA’s legacy of exploration and discovery in a video that also marked the signing of the 2017 NASA authorization bill earlier in the week.

“My fellow Americans, this week in the company of astronaut I was honored to sign the NASA Transition Authorization act right into law,” Trump said in his address on YouTube. “With this legislation, we renew our national commitment to NASA’s mission of exploration and discovery, and we continue a tradition that is as old as mankind. We look to the heavens with wonder and curiosity.” Trump signed the NASA authorization bill on Tuesday (March 21).

The video opened with clips from NASA’s historic Apollo 11 moon landing mission, from a view of Neil Armstrong taking “one small step” on the lunar surface, to crowds cheering the Apollo 11 crew’s return to Earth with a ticker tape parade. Trump then recounted a story from the Hubble Space Telescope’s history. [Presidential Visions for NASA Throughout History]

Scott Adams has Good News! Trump is no longer “Literally Hitler”, now Trump is just another incompetent bumbler! Yay!

Scott Adams has an interesting thought about the upside to the Health Care debacle,

Today we are witnessing one of the most important events in political history

Trump just had one of the best days any president ever had: He got promoted from Hitler to incompetent. And that promotion effectively defused the Hitler-hallucination bomb that was engineered by the Clinton campaign.

In all seriousness, the Trump-is-Hitler illusion was the biggest problem in the country, and maybe the world. It was scaring people to the point of bad health. It made any kind of political conversation impossible.

With the failure of the Ryan healthcare bill, the illusion of Trump-is-Hitler has been fully replaced with Trump-is-incompetent meme

Read the article, it’s damn interesting.

Even though the bill’s failure is a strategic political setback, and the very best outcome for future Trump legislation would have been the passage of the AHCA, I’ve also written earlier that a failure of the AHCA also has a lot of possible positive outcomes. Here are a few off the top of my head:

  • Good News! Trump is no longer “Literally Hitler”, now Trump is just another incompetent bumbling Republican! Yay! Point and laugh! (at a man who talks about the value of being underestimated in every one of his books)
  • The Dems were never going to cross the isle to support any alternative to the ACA, and now all health care bad news can automatically be blamed on them. I can almost hear Spicer now, “We tried! We worked harder on this bill than any bill in our lives, but those darned Democrats and the lying media”.
  • If the RyanCare bill survives at all, (that’s a big if) it will be heavily modified from it’s current form. Can you say “interstate insurance market”? I thought you could!
  • Transparency of the process. Think back on what anyone knew about what was contained within the ACA. With RyanCare you read what was in it before Ryan tried to pass it. Most Conservatives hated what was in Ryan’s AHCA bill, and … Your voices were heard!
  • Trump threw his full support behind Ryan. Due to the unwavering Trump support, Ryan (if he can retain his speakership) and the GOP establishment now owe Trump equal support in return .
  • Today President Trump isn’t just Ryan’s best friend, he’s his only friend.
  • The House Freedom Caucus lost a fair amount of moral high ground by supporting the continued funding of Planned Parenthood. “Standards? Why yes! We have double the standards!”

The possibilities are endless.

Update: Texas Republican Ted Poe Quits Freedom Caucus Over Their #NeverTrump Intransigence… | The Last Refuge

Texas Republican Congressman Ted Poe has announced he is giving up membership in Hillary’s Favorite Caucus over their unwillingness to support President Trump:

“I have resigned from the House Freedom Caucus,” Poe said in a statement. “In order to deliver on the conservative agenda we have promised the American people for eight years, we must come together to find solutions to move this country forward. Saying no is easy, leading is hard, but that is what we were elected to do.

Leaving this caucus will allow me to be a more effective Member of Congress and advocate for the people of Texas. It is time to lead.”  “Some only want to be the party of ‘no’ & would’ve voted against the 10 commandments,” (link)

Yea voting to continue funding Planned Parenthood abortion factories is going to be hard to defend in the 2018 campaign.

Virgil: Like Reagan, Trump Can Bounce Back—and So Can His Agenda

The most important point to make about the failure of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Friday afternoon is that it’s not the final word on the Trump presidency—much as some in the media might hope that it is.

Yes, The New York Times called the bill’s failure a “humiliating defeat” for the administration, and yes, The Washington Post labeled it “a big embarrassment,” and yes, Politico dubbed it a “staggering setback.”  Without a doubt, many pundits will be clucking, chortling, and end-zone dancing for days and weeks to come.

Yet a look at recent presidential history tells us that such political obituaries are almost always premature; the presidency is a resilient institution.

As White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said on Friday afternoon, the Trump administration still believes that he has plenty of strength to pursue other priorities, notably, tax reform.

In addition, Virgil remembers the wise words of Ronald Reagan, who had his share of defeats—and more than his share of victories.  Quoting an old Scottish ballad, he liked to say, in tough situations, “We are hurt; we are not slain. We’ll lie us down and rest a bit, and then we’ll fight again.”  That was the optimistic, don’t-let-‘em-get-you-down spirit that made Reagan the effective leader that he was.

Having defended the ObamaCare legislation, the UniParty House of Representatives can now move forward to the next objective: NOT passing President Trump tax reforms.  This will take them to the biggest objective: NOT passing the seismic President Trump’s budget cuts.
