Despite Media Lies & Distractions, WH Is Effective

That's neat!

President Trump’s administration has taken on a host of major initiatives, many of which have lingered at the top of conservative wish lists for a decade or more. The appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court in some ways could justify the entire Trump presidency. Trump will make hundreds of lower-court appointments as well, and he appears serious about keeping his promise to shape the judiciary in the mold of Antonin Scalia.
On energy, the administration has been busy—and effective. Opening China to American imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) will alter the world’s playing field on energy and feed a boom in the construction of LNG export terminals. Trump’s rollback of EPA regulations is unprecedented, and his expansion of pipeline-building is salutary. The president has refocused U.S. energy policy from feel-good but evidence-poor measures addressing climate change to harnessing America’s resource wealth for economic growth. Abandoning the charade of the Paris Accords was window dressing—the agreements were self-defined and unenforceable—but the message was clear: the Democrats’ war on hydrocarbons is over.
Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Justice Department has moved aggressively to reverse the Obama administration’s attempts to achieve social engineering through the legal system. Sessions ordered a halt to the practice of channeling corporate settlement funds to nonprofit advocacy groups, which essentially guaranteed left-wing organizations a semi-permanent funding stream. The attorney general is reviewing consent agreements that DOJ signed with a number of municipalities accused of racist policing to determine whether the charges are valid or were generated by Black Lives Matter-style ideological excesses. As homicide rates rise in many major cities, the Trump Justice Department is pouring resources into law-and-order measures. And this week, the DOJ announced that it would begin investigating affirmative action policies in college admissions to determine whether they intentionally discriminate against white and Asian applicants.
In foreign affairs, Trump used harsh language about NATO as a lever to compel member nations to pay their fair share toward their own defense. Amid hysterical claims that he was prepared to let Russia resume hegemony over former Warsaw Pact nations, Trump went to Warsaw and delivered a stirring defense of Western values, praising the Polish people for their courage in fighting enemies from all sides. Trump clearly declared that America stood with Europe’s smaller nations in their struggle to maintain sovereignty and national identity. Defense Secretary James Mattis’s strategy of “annihilation” of ISIS appears to be working, too, as former strongholds like Mosul fall in Iraq and hundreds of thousands of civilians begin returning home.

I have to agree with coming out of the COP21 agreement it was conceived on a pure alice in wonderland political fantasy.
