    They should have figured out by now that the President is used to “empire building” and “constituencies” inside failing corporations he’s taken over. And that he knows that those groups and their self-interests are the usual reason those corporations were failing.

    They should also have learned by now that his usual method of dealing with such dogs in mangers is “You’re Fired”.

    In this case, he might not be able to “fire” lobbyists, banks, and etc., but he can cut off their access to the Federal tit. It will probably be made easier by the fact that at least half of what they do is illegal to begin with.

    “But we’ve always done it that way and nobody complained!”

    Until. Now.

    Expect AG Sessions to be looking into a lot of this.

      Of course, if you reduce the gov’t to only those duties explicitly placed in the Constitution, there’s very little (comparably) room for lobbyists. That’s the only sure-fire way to cut off their access.

      • Bill G

        Precisely. Instapundit likes to point out how small government options are difficult to achieve because they leave little room for graft.

      • MasterDiver

        Read “HOPE” by L. Neil Smith!

        Zar Belk!

        • RegT

          Plus “Shadow of a Sword” and “Statesman” by Francis Porretto (both available at Smashwords and Amazon. Best enjoyed if you read the whole “Realm of Essences” series (five books total). Hell, everything Fran writes is superb (with – my opinion – two exceptions, only because my tastes don’t swing that way).

      • Old Codger

        ” if you reduce the gov’t to only those duties functions explicitly placed authorized in the Constitution, there’s very little … room for lobbyists.”

        Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution explicitly defines the powers of the Federal Government. Section 9 explicitly defines powers which are prohibited to the government. The Constitution is not a disabling document (i.e. that which is not prohibited is implicitly authorized) but an enabling document (that which is not authorized is by definition prohibited). To drive home the latter principle the 9th and 10th Amendments explicitly state that any powers not granted the federal government are explicitly reserved to the states or the people. Unfortunately, there is no language, no matter how simple, which a lawyer cannot open to MISinterpretation.

        • RegT

          Even if it was impossible to (intentionally, I believe) misinterpret, the document would still be ignored, overruled, by those who crave power over others. The Constitution should have authorized members of Congress to only serve a _single_ two-year term. It should also have only authorized a session of Congress every other year, as it is here in Montana.

          I believe the Founders envisioned citizen-legislators, who had real jobs/businesses that they would return to after each (brief) session of Congress. Allowing longer terms without limits is a large part of why our government is so corrupt.

          • RegT

            And Congress should NEVER have been permitted to vote their own salaries and benefits, or permitted to be excluded from _anything_ to which the rest of the citizens of this country are subject.

          • Mort

            Agree big time…need Statesmen.

  • formwiz

    So true.

  • JTC

    Sorry for the drag-forward Chris, I had just posted this at the end of yesterday’s ‘toon, and it is so applicable to that one and this one…

    As to yesterday’s:

    “…if you do claim to know shit, be sure you can back that shit up.
    Found out today that we just lost someone who really knew his shit, was a hero warrior for our freedom, and was several years younger than me…

    http://weaponsman.com/

    That last part and how he died after everything he had done and been through, will shake an old dude up.”

    And as to today’s”

    Those quacks style themselves as doctors and say “do no harm”…

    While guys like Ranger Weaponsman and other SF’s know that surgical strikes are all about doing harm to the enemy, foreign and domestic, to maintain and defend freedom and the Republic..

    RIP, Sir. (Salute)

    • MasterDiver

      I live next to Charleston AFB, and can clearly hear the Morning
      “Call to Colors”, “Retreat”, and “Lights Out/Taps.”bugle calls. I will be standing in my garden, Saluting Ranger Weaponsman at 2200 tonite. RIP, Brother

        The stories which will be told and the truth of how some battles actually were won and lost.

  • Pamela

    Is there anyway that any elected official or Gov’t worker be required to carry “Malpractice Insurance” and pay for it out of their own pockets.
    First Do No Harm needs to be part of the oath.

    • GWB

      The problem is that progressives see the current situation as “doing harm”. I mean there might be someone without a cell phone to call their medical insurance company to praise them for lowering their rates! So, doing things is by their very definition “doing no harm”.

      Then, of course, there’s the problem that none of them can attribute negative consequences to their actions. Ipso facto, they aren’t doing any harm.

      I prefer the conservative cri de coeur of a favorite pundit of mine, from way back in the day:
      “Don’t just do something, stand there!”
      (Of course, that assumes you don’t have some economy- and freedom-killing laws to repeal!)

  • Iconoclast

    Where, in my experience, the call of the RINO quisling has never been revealed previously, I’m so grateful to have learned it’s a ‘quack’ … perhaps we should emulate the Mighty Ducks who quacked at their teacher when we speak to / of these two spineless ones?

    • Deplorable B Woodman

      There ya go. That’s it, the “call of the Puny RINO GOPe”, a “quack”.

      Hmmm…….does that “quack” refer to the sound of a duck? Or that these self-styled “doctors”, aren’t.

      • PaulS

        Yes.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    “FIRST, DO NO HARM”??!!! YOU ^^&&$$))((@@**!!!!!!

    It’s you Kongress Kritter Klown M——-F——-s that have put America in this mess in the first place. “Do No Harm”, my left testicle!

    Step One, you create a problem. Then you tell us, “look here’s a problem. WE (royal “we” – meaning, WE dictate, YOU obey) need to fix it.”

    Step Two, the “new” law (bureaucracy, executive order, et al, etc), possibly ham-handedly “fixes” the original problem, but through the “Immutable Law of Unintended Consequences”, either exacerbates the original problem, or creates a whole new set of problems.

    Repeat the cycle at Step One….ad nauseum, ad infinitum.

    There are those days (weeks, months) when I wish The Purge was a real thing, limited to those who put themselves into public office and public exposure.

    Ok, you KKK (see above) MFers want to play “Doctor”? Let’s try this, a surgical extraction of the Cancer that is 90% of Gubberment. Starting with yourselves. Here’s a scalpel for each of you. Start operating on each other…..NOW!!

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Chris,
    Thank you for allowing me to vent above. It helps keep the ulcers down and the blood pressure low, and allows me to sleep at night.

  • ‘Do no harm’…. (snerrkkk!) Okay. Doing no harm will put them out of a job. In all seriousness, you could shut down the entire Congressional body for a 6-month period and no one would really notice.

    The real question is how to harmlessly divest ourselves of people like Maxine, Nancy and that whack job who thinks Guam might tip over.

    What ever happened to real statesmen?

    • TJ

      Mr. Smith went home from Washington, and nobody followed in his footsteps, metaphorical that they were.
      I love Jimmy Stewart.

    • Spin Drift

      Maxime (you don’t have to put on the red light, Maxime you don’t have to sell your body to the night) is coming to Auburn next week to pontificate (really defecate) on the ills of the white man and his burden of privilege. I wonder if the antifa thugs that were bused down from Atlanta will make a reappearance.

      Spin
      As to spineless and Mc’cockless, shoot them both with a punt gun.

  • WayneM

    Do “quack” and “yadda” mean the same thing? Just wonderin’…

    • Bill G

      My personal translation of yadda-yadda-yadda is “New day, same B.S.”, but I am taking these quacks to be Chris putting confessions into mouths that will never speak them.

  • Dread

    Someday masses will realize that these two are as disastrous for America as Obola and Cliton. Yeah I got my spelling right.

    • Bill G

      These two and their allies on our side of the aisle are merely slow-motion democrats. They want to go to the same place, they merely want to make the trip take a longer time to keep the peasants from seeing where they’re headed.
      If I was the full-fledged conspiracy freak I’m thought of by some I’d be looking for bern-out to have an accident or sudden heart-attack in the coming months.

    • Old Codger

      Someday masses will realize that these two are as disastrous for America as Obola and Cliton.

      I disagree completely. I do not believe the “masses” will “realize” ANYTHING they are not carefully and explicitly fed. If they were capable of perceiving anything on their own they would not BE part of the masses. I do not believe that the masses truly qualify for the “sapiens” portion of our species’ name because the masses seldom if ever think. They are naturally herd creatures more akin to sheep or cattle. They are more like “Homo bovinus” than homo sapiens.

      • John

        I think I prefer the term “sheeple”.
        It has a nice ring to it.
        As I see it though, the primary function of public schooling is to produce sheeple for the Progs to manipulate.

      • RegT

        Two reasons why I believe many citizens are as clueless as they obviously are – taught a passel of lies and denied the truth in school, by teachers who are almost all socialists by education, training, and indoctrination (but I’m being redundant). Add to that the difficulty of getting misinformed, lied to again, or denied the truth again (info they refuse to publish or report) by the media.

        Also, they are distracted by “bread and circuses” from what is valuable, decent, and necessary knowledge. The wasteland known as “TV”, professional (and collegiate) sports, and the separation of races and creeds (islam is _not_ a creed, it is a cult) by those who wish to keep us all dis-united and barking at each other instead of the real problem – our government, especially the Deep State. (And I’m afraid race relations are now so damaged that they may not be repairable, at least in the next three or four generations.)

  • noncom

    Absofuckinglutely right….time for both houses to get of their dead asses and get it done….that is the harm they are doing to the country….

  • Maybe I am misreading this, but I never thought I would see the day when McConnell would be played more seriously than Ryan. Are we going through an epithany here?

  • Jess Sain

    Trump needs to prosecute the spy ring and drag some politicians through the courts to let him know he means business.

  • NotYetInACamp

    The essence of the first sentence up there is my usual comment to establishment Republicans. Would that I had sponsored such a strip. The rest also follows much that i say. You put it very well. And it says it in a manner and finesse that i don’t believe that I have ever done.
    It is.

  • epador

    No, the real first paradox is:

    Remember, the patient is the one with the disease.

    As far as fixing health care, the same doctor also wrote:

    There is no body cavity that can not be reached with a strong arm and a 14 gauge needle.

    Today, I say, there is no legislation that can not be overturned with a strong arm and a competent legislative majority; there is no executive action that can not be repealed by Donald Trump and a black-ink pen.

    • Old Codger

      there is no legislation that can not be overturned with a … competent legislative majority

      {sigh} If only we HAD one of those.

    • Old Codger

      {sigh} If only we HAD one of those “competent legislative majorities”.

      • Old Codger

        (sorry for the repeat. I was getting repeat error before the first one showed up so I tried to reduce it. then when it accepted the 2nd comment the 1st magically appeared)

  • NotYetInACamp

    Remember this, Mr. President:

    “Anything is legal as long as you don’t get caught”
    – The United States Congress !

    That is who you are dealing with. The harm of which they speak do no harm, is usually meant do no harm to themselves

  • Ultracon

    Surely Bannon knows that Ryno and McTurtle are committed to blocking the POTUS agenda? So obvious to all of us in the peanut gallery that it is painful to watch.

  • Pamela

    There is something truly wrong when this Redhead is more of a Man than the majority of what is in D.C.

    • NotYetInACamp

      You are manly in a great and wonderful womanly way.

      D.C. is a very low bar to pass, if I may point that out.

  • Kafiroon

    You are in your great condition naturally. They never had what it takes to be men, act like men or have any idea of what a man is.
    Or: they never descended.

  • Halley

    Deplorables need to find a way to speak up en masse against the BarackHussein appeasers, I mean the congress…
