President Trump has been acting in accordance with his campaign promises. In his first week in office, Trump signed a battery of executive orders related to Obamacare, immigration, national security, a war strategy against ISIS, ending taxpayer funding of abortions overseas, ordering construction of a southern border wall, freezing federal hiring, building the Keystone pipeline, renegotiating NAFTA, and ending the Trans Pacific Partnership arrangement.
President Trump has met with business leaders from major sectors of the U.S. economy, including the Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of Dell, Tesla, US Steel, Johnson & Johnson, Under Amour, Dow Chemical, Corning, International Paper, and Whirlpool. He also met with the CEOs of Ford, GM, and Chrysler. Trump also met with union leaders from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, North American Building and Construction Trades Department, the Sheet Metal Workers Union, the Laborers International Union of North America, and others.
Trump hosted British Prime Minister Teresa May, as his first official visit from a foreign head of state. The visit reestablished the “special” relationship between the United Kingdom, and the United States. He also spoke with several foreign leaders, including the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Trump visited the Central Intelligence Agency, Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense, to visibly show his support of their personnel. He also met with representatives of the law enforcement community at the White House, to show his support and appreciation for their service to the nation.
Trump also nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch is a “constitutionalist,” who ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, 573 U.S, protecting the religious freedom of a closely held corporation under the 1st Amendment. He was confirmed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals with a 95-0 vote in the U.S. Senate.
Trump’s actions reflect a chief executive operating at “break-neck” speed to execute his national economic and trade strategy, and national security strategy, for the nation. Notwithstanding, Mr. Trump continues to experience political attacks from the liberal political establishment, which explains why it is so important for all Trump’s supporters, including the Christian church community in America, to remain as engaged as ever, after the election.
Since his election, Trump has been attacked on inauguration crowd size, alleged removal of the Martin Luther King bust from the Oval Office, losing the popular vote, his southern border wall Mexico payment policy, his sanctuary cities policy, and his Middle East immigration “extreme vetting” policy. The liberal establishment has also attacked Trump’s wife, Melania, and his 10 year old son, Barron.
Undoubtedly, the liberal establishment will continue to mount attacks over the next four years. In this respect, the people that elected Donald Trump must be ever informed and engaged in the governing process, in order to ensure that Trump is able to implement his agenda.
How does one stay informed and engaged? What actions should you take as a citizen to exercise good stewardship in relation to politics and governmental affairs?
First, observe that the liberal establishment, and the broader global establishment which includes elitist Republicans, has no interest in working together with anyone who does not share their respective liberal ideology, and/or their globalist vision and policy agenda; specifically, multiculturalism, gender neutrality and identification, mass migration, global warming, open borders, global trade, surrender of national sovereignty, and removal of the nation’s Christian moral foundation. Such policies are destructive to the American economy; American culture; middle-class Americans; the U.S. standard of living; and the American way of life.
Second, observe that almost all of the corporate media supports and promotes the liberal ideology and globalist vision and agenda. Hence, with the exception of a few journalists, for example, Sean Hannity, Bill O’reilly, and Janine Pirro; and a few others, the corporate media cannot and should never be trusted. Almost the entire media establishment is opposed to middle-class American interests. In effect, they are opponents of “We the People.”
Given the foregoing observations, you must rely on the integrity of President Trump and his administration, unless you have superseding and veracious information to the contrary. In this respect, you must view all information from the corporate media and political establishment with skepticism, and exercise critical analysis before drawing conclusions. In short, do not accept at face value what is reported by the corporate media.
Third, pay attention to important developments emanating out of the Trump Administration, and do so within the context of the long-term perspective. In other words, do not assume that because Trump did not act on some issue today, or in the short-term, means that he is not intending to act.
Fourth, support credible “new Internet media” sources. There are excellent news and political analysis sources on the Internet. Such sources include Drudgereport.com; theconservativetreehouse.com; thegatewaypundit.com; rsbn.tv; and of course this new media citizen journalist website stewardshipamerica.com. Other credible websites are listed on the Links page of stewardshipamerica.com.
Be ready to contact your congressional representatives. Below is the number to the U.S. Capitol switchboard. Place the number in your phone contacts for easy retrieval, and call your representatives when they are acting contrary to the interests of “We the People.”
United States Capitol switchboard: (202) 224-3121.
Finally, remember what the election of Trump was all about – stopping the fundamental transformation of America, and the globalists agenda and vision.
America stepped back from the edge of the cliff in electing Donald Trump – which only occurred because “We the People” stepped into the political arena. “We the People” must now remain actively informed and engaged; and never sit on the sidelines again.
