My 10-point report card on Trump’s first six months as president

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Tonight, let's ignore the Media Party narrative about "chaos" and "Russia," and look at real things instead: What has Trump accomplished since his inauguration, and what promises has he failed to keep?

Number one is Trump’s first appointment to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, because the Supreme Court writes more of America’s laws all the time.

And there will likely be another vacancy, as soon as this year, as 84-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg retires. If Trump makes a second solid appointment, that’s probably the single more important thing he will achieve as president.

The second most important thing he’s done is appointing Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency. Pruitt used to be an attorney general suing the EPA; now he’s running it.

Tonight I’ll review Trump’s other accomplishments, from pulling out of the Paris climate agreement to reviving the economy.

I’ve got some criticisms, too, especially about the delay in constructing his promised border wall.

If, after hearing my ten points, you think I’m too generous to Trump, just imagine what Hillary and Bill Clinton and the Democrats would have done by now…

TONIGHT’S GUESTS: Joel Pollak of Breitbart joins me to talk about my Trump report card; then our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid talks about covering the United Conservatives vote last weekend.

Type in, ‘do paid trolls exist’ and see what comes up, paid troll. You are a bottom feeder, only capable of subterfuge and malicious verbiage.
A waste of space.

Dirk and Peter, thanks for the reminder.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

It’s not a matter of liking your answer or not – it’s a matter of you not actually responding to what you were asked. And yes, it was a total copy and paste job for the most part – focusing on some things that he has either already failed at or made promises that he has already broken.

The truth is – you don’t have an actual response and you will forgive Trump for his complete shit show of a Presidency, because you don’t want a Democrat to be President in 2020 either.

Dirk said, “when you argue with an idiot he’ll just drag you down to his level.”

Yup. Unfortunately I have been caught up in that trap a time or two … or three.
commented 2017-07-25 22:52:10 -0400
Tammie, I like your list and agree with it. I can see that you did not copy and paste it. Jimmy is just a fool and has no response to your list. In addition, Jimmy is far too stupid to change his mind. He is only reciting with what he has been programmed through socialist indoctrination.

Well Jimmy Reece, you didn’t like my answer; so what!
The copy and past job you accused me of is false.
Anyway, when you ask me again to outline something, my answer is no.
I’m borrowing from President Trump – go to google translate type cov fefe (arabic to english), then listen to how it is pronounced in arabic.

Liza Rosie,

You are truly an idiot if you believe that. Seriously – not trying to be mean here, but paid trolls? LOL

If paid trolls were a real thing – paid for by the CBC, Ezra would be all over that. He’s not, because it only exists in your mind.
commented 2017-07-25 15:34:17 -0400
I knew you would answer to your name, paid Troll, because you are one. Your second name is ‘subterfuge’.
So it’s the CBC. Thanks for confirming.
commented 2017-07-25 15:17:09 -0400
Liza Rosie,

I would be perfectly fine if Rand Paul was President – not a Liberal/Democrat. Which Liberal/Democrat would you be fine with?
commented 2017-07-25 15:15:12 -0400

The wall is never going to be built, so border control is not going to happen on that level – which is a main reason why people voted for Trump. Trump will take a huge hit for that in 2020 – not to mention healthcare.

It’s hilarious that you actually think I am a paid troll. This reinforces my point that you are not very smart if you think paid trolls actually exist and CBC is paying for them. Why doesn’t Ezra expose that if it was true. Perhaps you should bring your idiotic claim to Ezra’s attention.

Pretty much everything that has been brought up by Ezra and other has been debunked through fact checking. I know you are anti-fact though, so nothing I can do there if you insist on living in a fantasy world fueled by lies.
commented 2017-07-25 15:08:17 -0400
Liza Rosie,

Yes – Americans just love the proposed Trump healthcare plans and the outrage over them is all made up.

The Trump voters – of which YOU ARE NOT, that have expressed their disgust and disappointment online is also made up in your world.

If you think Americans are just loving Trump, you couldn’t be more naïve. But yes, just not being a liberal/Democrat is good enough for many.
commented 2017-07-25 14:11:06 -0400
America first, border control and respect for the sovereignty of his country, jobs, resource extraction, plus plus.
I guess if you could listen to the video you would know the points Ezra has highlighted which are concrete accomplishments. Since you can’t and didn’t listen to the video why are you even commenting here just to disrupt? Because you are a paid troll that’s why. Because that’s what you do under the guise of having another opinion, you argue for argue sake. You think you are directing the narrative (what a joke) when all you are doing is ignoring what people are countering you with. You need to polish up on your Alinsky playbook troll. You can’t even troll effectively.
commented 2017-07-25 14:01:52 -0400
“Truth be told, I don’t think you care if he accomplishes anything. Just not being liberal/Democrat is good enough for you.”
Says projecting paid troll.
Such obvious projection.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

No – I am not asking for you Trump’s claims or promises. You pretty much just copy and pasted Trump’s campaign bullshit and why people should vote for him.

I asked you to tell me why you like Trump, per his actions and accomplishments as President now. Not what you think he will do or what you like per his empty promises like the wall, which is never going to happen and that wall is why many people voted for him.

Another example is his claim that America will have the best healthcare ever, but clearly that is not happening.

I want to know why you don’t think Trump isn’t a complete failure, like many people who voted for him are saying. What do you see as a Canadian that people who voted for him can’t see?
commented 2017-07-25 12:02:23 -0400
Trump has had to take on the Democrats, the Republican establishment, activist judges, the mainstream media & George Soros’ paid for goons and he’s winning. The Democrats continue to spend a fortune to lose elections (there was an election in Georgia recently where the Democrats outspent the Republicans 7 to 1, were ahead in the polls & was being billed as a “referendum” by the mainstream media – right up until the Republicans won.) Trump faces resistance on the wall but it is progressing – https://www.infowars.com/report-trump-border-wall-work-begins-in-texas/

- Trump has been calling out these establishment Republicans over getting rid of Obamacare. That’s the sort of thing he does quite well.

- Notley was the biggest incentive to unite the right in Alberta. If the NDP hadn’t been so horrible this might have been close. The mainstream media has an agenda & it doesn’t include honesty.

Jimmy Reece,
Why I like much of what President Trump is trying to accomplish, in no particular order
• He is not a globalist and unapologetically puts the United States of America & Americans first
• He is not beholden to foreign entities and politicians, he’ll ban Whitehouse officials lobbying for foreign governments.
• He will also ban foreign lobbyists from fundraising for US elections
• He tossed political correctness to the curb. If he has an issue with you, he says it to your face
• He saved US billions on UN climate change agenda
• He insisted NATO partners contribute what they are mandated to
• He correctly identified the problem with the ever expanding federal government workforce, and will impose a hiring freeze
• He will impose term limits on Members of Congress
• He will have the Clinton’s investigated; name and prosecute any corrupt politicans who have gotten rich on politics and broken the law
• He knows how to navigate complex deals
• He has emphasized the need for free enterprise & government accountability when spending
taxpayer dollars. To reduce government waste and identify where the missing trillions have gone to
• He supports a strong military
• He bypasses the media party, and communicates directly with the people. I’m not a fan of all of his tweets, but, he can deliver a good burn! He has a sense of humour. I especially liked how he stirred up msm with covfefe. Msm accused President Trump of being incoherent, suffering from dementia etc… They spent days on covfefe! Boy, they were wrong. LMAO
• His speech in Saudia Arabia was phenomenal, same for Poland, same for Israel, same for speechs delivered to non-elitists
• He doesn’t refer to Islamic terror attacks as “workplace violence” or any other false descriptor

The Clinton’s corruption and lawlessness goes all the way back to Arkansas. They are above all, career criminals. Bill and Hilary have used politics to advance their criminal enterprise and to punish anyone who names them for what they really are.
commented 2017-07-25 10:11:57 -0400
I think Trump’s greatest accomplishment is to revive the fighting spirit in a party that has been bullied by the Democrats and the liberal media for a long time. He has drawn attention to an unholy alliance who have been allowed to define morality with their identity politics and hyper political correctness only to reveal they were no better and in many cases much worse than they have been pontificating against.
commented 2017-07-25 10:04:45 -0400
Jimmy Reece: You may want to have a closer look at the article. The author of it clearly lists the bills that were passed money’s spent on various causes other programs stopped. The author freely admits whether or not these are good or bad may be viewed differently depending on your political leanings which makes the point I have been saying for a long time. Despite your grand claims you’re not really much less biased than those you criticize.
commented 2017-07-25 08:49:01 -0400
I see Jimmy is back again and it was so very pleasantly quiet for several days without the irritating socialist dimwit trolls posting their lying hate filled comments here and it had to be Jimmy who broke the silence.

All should read his comments to see that they say absolutely nothing of substance whatsoever, just insults and lies.
commented 2017-07-25 00:43:20 -0400
Jimmy Reece our new citizenship guide is more sharia complaint now, i thought you said that would not happen here? LMAO!
commented 2017-07-25 00:42:30 -0400
SEE people, Jimmy Reece is an idol of his own clueless mind.
I’ll put 10 that he blows his own head off anytime soon.
commented 2017-07-25 00:42:15 -0400
Jimmy Reece fact check Obama then, and Justin, Trump is way above either of them.
commented 2017-07-25 00:41:41 -0400
Jimmy Reece yeah whatever you say, now go believe that Russia wanted Trump in and not Hillary who was already bought and paid for. And CNN is fake news. LMAO!
commented 2017-07-25 00:38:55 -0400
OK – we’ll deal with that – PRESENT your ugly self. conservatives deal with reality.
commented 2017-07-25 00:31:10 -0400
Drew Wakariuk,

Those are not opinions – that is fact checking. Apparently you don’t know the difference, which isn’t surprising since you are the dumbest person here.

You do realize that Trump’s approval rating is in the toilet – that means people who also voted for him unlike you are unhappy with Trump so far as well, but Rebel Canadians love him. That makes a whole lot of sense.
commented 2017-07-25 00:28:25 -0400
I bet Jimmy thinks that all the deaths that suddenly happen when someone is to testify against the Clintons is just a HUGE COINCIDENCE!
commented 2017-07-25 00:27:17 -0400
Obama was a SH*T president. Trump will be a great one , the Rebel will continue to grow, and the left wing whiners can’t do a damn thing about it.
