In 2009 a bipartisan Senate approved seven of Barack Obama’s cabinet members in rapid succession on his first day as president.
Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York warned Republicans that his caucus was prepared to do battle over all controversial nominations.
“We intend to have a full and rigorous debate on the presidents remaining nominees.”
The harsh reality is, Democrats can’t put off final votes indefinitely because Republicans hold 52 seats in the Senate and a simple majority of 51 votes is needed to confirm most presidential nominations. Democrats, however, are able to use several procedural tactics to slow down the confirmation process. Of course, this could be an effort to slow down the momentum that newly elected, President Trump already has with his new Conservative efforts.
The average person may ask the question, “What’s the big deal about rushing Nominees through the process?” There are many agenda items the new Administration would like to move forward. A delay of Cabinet Members could actually slow down the start of the new Conservative agenda by President Trump.
With Democrats ramping up their efforts to cast doubt on Nominees, it has become a “slow walk” in confirming new Cabinet Members. Republicans have said they are not planning to delay any hearings. Thanks to a rules change imposed by Democrats in 2013, it will take only 51 votes to confirm each nominee rather than the usual 60.

Here are some of the responses callers received when contacting Planned Parenthood offices across the country:
“We don’t have prenatal care here. Planned Parenthood offers just abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care.”

Muslim women took advantage of recent protests after the Inauguration of the 45th United States’ President, Donald J. Trump.
Tactics straight for the “Play Book” of Saul Alinsky. (“Never let a good crisis go to waste.”)
A Russian-born, Jewish immigrant, Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) is credited with coining the term “community organizer.” His tenets are outlined in his well-known book “Rules for Radicals,” published in 1971. Nicknamed “The Red,” Alinsky dedicated his book tongue-in-cheek to Lucifer, the first radical.
Conservatives should make themselves aware of the “Leftist Liberal Tactics” being used by those who would attempt to change our nation into an unrecognizable America.
Understanding your enemy’s strategies can help to defeat them. Considering the relentless aggression of Islam, this could be “key” to the conservation of “The American Way”.
Alinsky’s 13 Rules for the Left:
1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
2. Never go outside the experience of your people.
3. Whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.
4. Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.
5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
6. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.
7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.
9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.
11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counter-side.
12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
Ashley Judd took the stage at a “Women’s Rally” in Washington D.C. this week
Film Star Ashley Judd used her talents and abilities to recite a poem written by a 19-year-old named Nina Donovan from Tennessee. The “Liberal” content of the poem makes references to Trump’s election, mass incarceration, LGBT rights, the wage gap, and other “Liberal” issues. Additionally, the poem compares Trump to Adolf Hitler.
The message of “Women’s Rights” has been skewed and bastardized since its conception. The U.S. women’s movement had its beginnings in 1848 when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott called the Seneca Falls Convention in New York to “discuss the social, civil, and religious condition and rights of woman.” Stanton and Mott had broad ranging goals for this first-ever women’s convention, as detailed in their “Declaration of Sentiments.” Modeled after the U.S. Declaration of Independence, the document included twelve resolutions concerning the rights, privileges, and obligations of women, eleven of which easily passed. The resolution arguing for woman suffrage was a point of contention among participants. After much debate, Frederick Douglass, the well-known orator, abolitionist, and vigorous supporter of women’s rights, stood up to speak in favor of women’s franchise. His passionate argument helped garner support from Seneca Falls participants, and over 100 of them signed the resolution, enabling it to pass.

The 12 Resolutions proposed can be found here (Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions Woman’s Rights Convention, Held at Seneca Falls, 19-20 July 1848).
The contrast of what was desired then and today (2017) are vastly different and include, but are not limited to: Reproductive Rights, Fair and Equal Pay, Feminization of Poverty, Gender Discrimination, the right to practice a “lesbian lifestyle” and and yes, Women and Climate Change.
Over the years, there has been a definite “progressive movement” away from the design of the traditional family unit. One can attempt to argue the design, but the physiological make-up of both men and woman set the presedence and method by which the family unit must and should exist. Many of the complaints today stem from the iteration of the “Traditional Family Unit” as it was designed.
The simple reality is this: Regardless of individuals perspective on how to “live their lives”, there are certain facts set in stone that can not change the DNA given to us at conception. The remaining “Women’s Rights Issues” (listed above) of 2017 are still in need of discussion.
