President Trump hastily called an early Friday afternoon press conference to announce that, yes, he is signing the “omnibus” spending bill and, NO, he is never signing such a bill again.

The reason he gave was that the military must be generously funded in order to recover from the decimation it suffered under Democratic leadership. It’s reported that Defense Secretary Mattis convinced him to go against his inclination to veto the bill in order to ensure a superior military. Trump said his goal is the creation of the strongest military we have ever had. The only way we could get that in the bill, he said, was to include expensive outlays that the Democrats wanted that are “very bad for our country.” (Well, that much is true!)

Trump said “we have to get rid of the filibuster rule” that stops a simple majority vote in the Senate from approving a spending bill. (That much is also true. We will never, ever, get the spending cuts we need under the current system, and our nation will continue its slide into eventual bankruptcy.) Republicans are on notice to change the rules.

Yes, he wanted a provision for DACA in the bill, noting that Democrats showed their true stripes by not including it. Okay, fine, but it’s the massive discretionary spending insisted on by Democrats that is the truly unacceptable part; that is absolutely out of control.

To prevent this kind of situation from happening again, he’s also calling on Congress to give him a line-item veto on government spending bills. In this age of huge, terrible, “comprehensive” legislation and billions wasted every year on expensive earmarks, this is a tool the President definitely needs. But every President has wanted the line-item veto; can he get it through?

As for increased border security to address illegal immigration and the drug trade, the President said, “The border, we’ve worked very hard on...we funded the ‘initial down payment’ of $1.6 billion for the wall,” which is “not enough, but we’re working on that very quickly.” “Not enough” is the understatement of the week; this paltry level of funding will not satisfy –- indeed, will infuriate –- many people who voted for him primarily on the immigration issue.


Commentary continues below advertisement


Trump said there’s “nobody more disappointed than me” about the size of this bill, but “it’ll start coming down.” He stressed, “We have no choice but to fund our military.” Understood, but doesn’t this imply that military spending is the (pardon) “trump card” that Democrats (and RINOs) can always show to get all the other spending they want? The art of this deal doesn’t seem very artful.

And did he have to thank Congress for “working so hard”? They did not do their job. On second thought, Democrats did do theirs, which was to spend astronomical sums and to set up Trump for political disaster as deliberately as any DOJ conspiracy or special counsel could do.

    Just wanted to thank you for explaining why Pres. Trump voted to pass the spending bill. I had not heard this on the news. It does make sense but I agree with the person who said it is the ploy that some of our Congress uses to put our President in the position where he has to pass it to fund our military. I also agree with the person who said our Congress should be ashamed of their part in putting all of the other things that could have been left out - especially the raise they gave themselves!!! They want to cut our Social Security and leave some people destitute. They have failed to do the job they were elected to do - stand up for the people of this United States.

    I watched the whole Fox News program leading up to President Trump coming on TV to say he was signing the bill. Reports earlier said that Sec. Mattis went to the President and asked him to sign it because the Congress wouldn't give our military this kind of money again. Dems wouldn't. They put him over a barrel. My question to you is: would you have signed it or vetoed it? Personally, I wish the Dems would have let another shut down happen. Please send me your answer. I have asked you an important question before and you didn' t take time to answer!!!! You say you read them all!!!! Thank you.

    Since I doubt the line item veto will ever pass, how about a law that states all bills can only cover one subject, ie. the border wall, military spending, Medicare, ect., but they can not be lumped together in one bill.
    As to your second point, I think Republicans should have to wear a large pendent of an elephant and the Democrats one of a donkey so I can tell them apart!

    Our elected officials took an Oath of Office to protect the Constitution; not to play the game we'll give you this if you give us that. President Trump did not become a billionaire by playing this game. Shame on our Congress!!! An oath obviously doesn't mean anything to these elected people. They were 'hired' to protect the American people who elected them. Time for Congressional Term Limits!!!

    Governor we very much enjoy your show on TBN. The Senate Majority Leader and House Maj Ldr and the entire are Part of the Swamp and the PROBLEM. The congress has been operating this way for many years. The Congress is 'Scared" of the SWAMP and it's Public Service Unions. They will not stop delivering Congressional Bills until the LAST MINUTE. Please remember this infamous statement " sign it we can read it Later". Mitch and Paul were also members of Congress at that time. The SWAMP now operates that kinda comfortable procedure. SWAMP does not do anything on Active Bills because they are not Made to buy Congress. Because the SWAMP actuall manages the way Congress operates.

    Wasn't it a founding father, who predicted that the government would fail, once the public figured out how to pay themselves through effective voting, for the welfare state? I know Benjamin Franklin said something along the lines of having a republic, as long as we preserved it. It has become a way of life!

    I think it was a tough call but I also think Patty Helms summed it up really well. One item in one bill and it wouldn't have to be a tough call. Thank you for all you do and your show. I am so glad people have finally had enough of big government and want to see the Swamp drained!

  • Patty Helms

    One item in one bill. Period. We get into trouble by putting everyone's petty little pork spending in one bill. That has to stop!! Remember Kerry when he said "I voted for it before I voted against it". That was because "port" was there, then it wasn't.
    I am very disappointed in this bill being signed. Wish some of the Republicans weren't in the swamp. Guess they are tired of the Dems getting all the free stuff!
    Thank you for listening. Keep up the good fight. Love your show!!

    Mike: This is "part way there" in getting the job done. A strong military and National Guard is a must. Trump has nominated a conservative Judiciary. Now he has the tools for a strong military. I am in favor of martial law if necessary to protect against voter fraud and "mob" rule if necessary. It takes those two to do that. Govt shutdown and defunding "PP" would not get that done. We have a smart man inthe WH surrounding himself with smart men to get our Govt back on track. We need Dems and RINO's out. This can do it. Trump can cut spending from the inside out once he gets rid of some of the swamp. Get enough military spending and the Army Corps of Engineers can build the wall. More than one way to skin a cat...

    03/25/2018 06:26 AM

    Gov., I really enjoy your commentary. I can always depend on you to tell it like it is. Thank you. Now then, this omnibus is a huge problem, mostly because of all the pork added by the Dems. I really want to believe that the President has some trick up his sleeve to deal with this mess and he's going to whip it out at just the right time and correct the things that need correcting. However, at 64 years I'm nieve enough to think there is such a fix for all the damage the omnibus will cause. We're talking 300,000 murdered infants, rising crime rates in sanctuary cities and states, wasted billions on discretionary spending, ever increasing deaths due to illegal drugs, millions of more illegals flowing into the country and compounding the DECA problem, and so much more. We know that the liberal progressives don't care about human life, i.e. abortions and drugs. They only care about power and control, which is why they are moving farther left every day. I pray every day asking the Lord to reach into the hearts and minds of the nonbelievers and change them, or give us a miracle for all to see that will do the trick, however, as time passes I'm not receiving any reassurances that things are improving. Honestly, it seems that things are getting worse. How do you or I continue to be optimistic and positive at times like this, when prayer doesn't feel like it's working? I just try harder and hope it makes a difference only to be knocked back a few steps. I'll never quit or give up because I know that's when the Devil wins. I sure could use some good, positive advice that will make this effort easier to cope with. Some days I'm reluctant to turn on the TV or get on the computer for fear that the negatives will finally take their toll on me. God Bless you Gov.

    Well, initially I couldn't believe my President signed this omnibus bill -- but then I remembered that I voted for Mr. Trump and I trust him. It's such a huge job to get America back on its feet -- and I know he's the man who can do it! I see the swamp creatures are out in force bragging that they put one over on my President. Our brave military desperately needs more funding (their idol "O" didn't give a heck about our service men and women - but he managed to send lots of money to Iran), and now it's available. I trust Mr. Trump - he's a lot smarter than the "never Trumpers" could ever imagine -- and that fact is to their peril!!

    The last time Pelosi said, "Let's get this passed and then you can read it." was for Obamacare and that had some major surprises in it so I dread this one. Protection for sanctuary cities? Funding for Planned Parenthood? Yes, our military had been suffering for years and we do need a much stronger one but was passing this bill worth it? I think quite a number of Trump voters are now going to think twice before re-electing him.

    I am so full of anger at congress. both republican and democrats for this bill was crushed by them. And We Americans need all that our President is wanting to pass, it is not for money in his pocket, as it seems to be the way you all voted so you could get kick backs. Guess you must need to supplement your incomes. The democrats did not even vote in the DACA that they have been ranting about for ever. So illegals do you still want to stay in America? You were given an opportunity to gain citizenship but did nothing about it. I hope that President Trump will be able to stop paying them welfare and Social Security payment which is much more than what I or my husband are drawing and we paid into Social Security it is not just given to us we also pay taxes on that money twice, first going in to the account and then again drawing a monthly retirement amount. What is wrong with that picture. Not Funny!!!!

    I had better see just which republicans did not work or vote to pass this bill and if you did not you can expect to not get my vote. I am so tired of hearing the cry babies and for goodness sake who is left for Hillary to blame for her loosing the election to our Great president Donald Trump. Sorry for taking up so much space Mike but you said you read them. LOL Love to you and your family we depend on you for truth.

    No he should have vetoed that bill. I know he was thinking about our Military but to sacrifice the rest of the people was unconscionable. We the People elected him because of the tax's, boarder wall and illegal immigration and also the 2nd Amendment. He did come through with the tax's but sold us out on the rest. Why is it so bad that Government shuts down for awhile? The major parts still function and only the nonessential agencies close. That should tell everyone that they aren't needed and that Government is bloated beyond control. It's time to start cleaning the swamp of all agencies that do the same as other agencies and have way to many nonessential personnel.

    What I’ve read is that he signed an omnibus bill and not a budget. With an omnibus bill, money can be designated for a specific area, but the president chooses how and when to spend it. For example, Obama for eight years had this type of funding and he used it on what he basically wished. In other words, the military has 80 billion and a part of that could go to building the wall as part of our national defense and use the army corps of engineers to do it. If he had vetoed it, he might have lost the money to build up our military. He can slow walk money to sanctuary cities, and if they don’t comply with ICE in helping to round up criminal illegals, delay giving it to them. He is in charge of when and how much of the money is spent. So I’m much happier that the discretion of spending is in the hands of Trump and not Obama. Conservatives need to wake up and be willing to be strong in support of their candidate. I’m discouraged when I see people jumping ship at the slightest sign of not getting everything they wanted all at once. I also want a strong military. General Mattis encouraged Trump to sign it and I think he had good reason. Without a strong military, our country is at risk. The aircraft that have crashed lately show the need for major repairs across the board. Our soldiers lost their lives. It a serious situation!

    If the only reason for signing the omnibus boondoggle, was the military appropriation in it, and that was $700 billion, it leads one to believe that it is a huge increase over last year. Hmm, let's see.... Nope, it's only an 8.571% increase. $60 billion won't cover the cost over runs for the F-35, and over half of the aircraft that went into service, have been sitting idle for over a year, waiting for spare parts. Although Trump has negotiated the price down to the current level of $94.6 million each, with a future cost reduction to $80 million, what good is that when over 200 aircraft sit idle waiting for parts? If Trump really wanted to play hardball, he would stop delivery and payment of any new aircraft until the 200 out of service aircraft, are in service. The one size fits all approach, has cost over $100 billion in special requirements from each branch of the military (there's an oxymoron, kind of like army intelligence). A huge cost of the aircraft is it's VTOL(vertical take-off or landing) capabilities, the engineering to do it is a nightmare and adds significantly to the cost. So why do we need this capability in ALL fighter aircraft? Is this capability frequently used? Let's see, the USAF would only use it in a disaster, and don't use it for normal operation. The USN on land wouldn't use it except in disaster, and on a carrier only in case of landing cable arrester failure. The USMC is the only branch who's mission profiles take advantage of the VTOL capability, but not in all of their missions. How did congress get duped into buying this albatross? "CONNED"gress. They only needed to replace the AV-8(Harrier II jump jet) with F-35's and the rest with less expensive aircraft, without VTOL.

    This latest action by the congress and Trump goes to prove my thinking....We no longer have a two party system that represents "We the People"....The gutless RINO Republicans and the socialists left wing Democrats are controlled by the special interest lobbyists and the Globalists!!!! Now with our guy Trump, succumbing to the manipulated D.C. political process, in order to support the military, and unfortunately the "Military Industrial Lobby", he didn't stand his ground , refuse to sign the bill, stop the congressional recess, and make them do it right, or stop government funding!!!!...Since the Senate says no more budget action, the chance of addressing the wall, chain migration, e-verify, and sanctuary cities, is most likely NEVER going to happen, particularly with a Democrat majority in November...So much for our coveted Sovereignty....Look for our true black and white legal culture, to be overwhelmed by open boarder infiltrators , promulgating a whole new culture, with values 180 degrees opposite to the social/moral norms that made this country great....Damm the irresponsible leaders that allowed this to happen in order to enhance their own selfish 30 pieces of silver...Boy , do I agonize over our kids and grand-kids future life....Daryl Schreiner

    Those of us who voted for him did so because we agreed with him on so many important issues, but he seems to like the other side too much to stick with us and that just erases every reason we had in supporting him. We had such high hopes at the beginning, and we stuck with him while the crooked media showed no respect for him. We wanted him, and all the Republicans, to do mighty things while they had the opportunity; but we only learned that Republicans are weak, and undecided. Democrats stick with what they are; and they will never be anything, but crooked, despicable, self-satisfying, power, and money-loving burdens.

Can't he take the money allotted to planned parenthood and the tunnel for ny and nj and use it for the wall. How can he accept that money going to planned parenthood. How can he build a tunnel between ny and nj when that is a state problem. Maybe someone should tell President Trump to do what Obama did. Spend it anyway he likes. Thank you.

    I am so glad to hear that Saudi Arabia is finally changing , if only a little bit, from their precious positions on such things as women's rights, radical Islam, and the sponsoring of Islamic clerics in our schools. The schools should have been a red line here as well as sponsoring terroist world wide. I was afraid they were going to get as bad as Iran.

    As for the budget goes I'm afraid I would have to get a little vindictive the next time around and there's two or three names that I would remember, Pelosi, Chuck Shumer and Adam Schiff. Schiff seems to be getting geared up for a run at the oval office. We desperately need another SCJ on the bench and to keep hacking away at Federal and Appeals Court judges that do not support Trump

    I am very disappointed that Trump signed the bill. I also understand that he HAD to sign it in order to get our military built up. Military personnel are dying in accidents due to no parts, old equipment, not enough training time and on and on. Trump really did not have a choice. I am even more disappointed at the SWAMP led by Ryan and McConnell. They are the ones really to blame for allowing the Dems to hold them over a barrel. We know the Dems really don't care about DACA or the border wall or immigration. They are not in favor of rule of law or protecting our people, they just want more money for abortions. The sad thing is that Democrats can't be Christians and vote for all these BAD things, especially abortion. That is being in favor of killing what God has created. Pray for the Dems to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Wait until one of the Dems is killed by an illegal criminal alien, then things may change. We must all pray for God to protect us from the Dems and their policies and to vote for more Republicans. If those who voted for Trump are so upset as to not vote for Trump or other Republicans, then they must be very narrow minded and closed to the truth that the security of our country must come before the Dems and their destructive means.

    So where do we go from here? Every one is mad that Trump did this instead of vetoing it and calling on Congress to fix it. What was wisdom dictating to him on this? Sign for the military or veto? What is the answer then? We can't let this stop moving our country to Conservatism and let the DEMONCRATS have the House back in November. People can't stay home and NOT vote cause they are mad!

    Mike please tell republicans in Congress that they are on notice. We have had enough of their incompetence. I think we should start with that spineless Paul Ryan and then dump every republican there in the next election. Im including That democrat in disguise from Arizona John McCain too because he is "registered as a republican". What a disgrace he has become to the country as a once leader in government. America wake up and throw all these worthless politicians out of office and elect more citizens who actually care about doing the will of the people rather than protecting their butts at the ballot box.

    I trust President Trump to make the best decision for America. I trust he will not support Any Gun Control. We need a strong military, but conceding to dems on anything is not good. What were his options?

    as a former Democrat, I am appalled by the only thought they have now is to ruin this country & to ruin President Trump. How can voters continue to vote for these despicable people who only want to promote their own agenda? These Liberals care nothing for the wishes of the people who put them in office. They have made this "service" as a politician, a career. Our forefathers never meant this to be a career. The longer a politician remains in office, the more power they have, which leads to corruption. If the President can only serve 2 terms, then no other politician should be able to serve more than 2 terms. Let's fix this problem with TERM LIMITS!
