First 100 days

Now that Trump has been elected, if you were advising him on what significant steps to take, symbolic or otherwise, in his first 100 days in office, what would your advice be?

Mine? Move to disband DHS, HUD, HHS, Department of Education, Department of Agriculture, Department of Labor and Department of the Interior and fire all currently serving GO / FO / SES throughout government service and start anew.

terminate all czar positions, no more tax stamps and advocate for nationwide hearing conservation ....also stop policies that reward irresponsible behavior i.e. abuse of emergency room, Medicaid, medicare, foodstamps, etc.

If Trump has class, I also want him to demonstrate his commitment and no-nonsense approach by skipping the in-your-face-celebrity-packed extravagant days of celebration as the divider-in-chief did in 2008. Git-r-done, Mr. President Trump!

1. Rescind all Executive Orders and unilateral WH memo's that bypass the legislative process

2. Disassemble the "czar" system completely and put in place measures that would block any such future action.

3. Assess the policy and regulatory overreach used and abused by Federal Departments and Agencies (DHS, EPA, DOJ, Agriculture, Education...etc...etc...)

4. Demonstrate a commitment to support and uphold the Constitution and the political processes outlined therein (see items 1, 2 and 3).

5. Institute a "daylight" policy to counteract the previous administrations (so-called) "transparency" and allow the American people to really see what has been going on within the EOP over the last 8 years.

6. Destroy the "DC Insider/Royal Court" by outlining a plan to move Federal Department and Agency Headquarters OUT of the DC metro area and into the regions of the country where their primary mission focus is (USDA in Iowa, Interior in Montana, DHS in Arizona).

This is a novel (to me) idea. If you don't mind indulging me, would you mind unwrapping this one a little?
  • Where to get/how to fund existing or new buildings
  • How to fund moving personnel/ acquiring new local personnel.
  • Projected increased or decreased utility/effectiveness of the dept in their new location

I think it's a great idea, I would like to delve a bit and see your thought process.

Beef up security to an exorbitant extent.
Take a gold shovel to the Mex border and break ground.
Enumerate exhaustively the failures of the previous administration while slapping his forehead and saying "Thank God we still got enough real Americans to turn this around.
Say "you're fired' to Obama on national TV.
Take baby steps to eradicate abortion, gender neutrality and Obamacare.
Link up tight with BiBi.
Double the recruiting efforts for the Military.
Get rid of the idiotic notion of female GB, Rangers, and SEALs. MARSOC not a priority.
Show the football on TV while addressing the Sunnis everywhere on Al Jazeera.
Tell BLM to cross a red line, then enforce the consequence.
Stop running Duck Dynasty and 90 percent of all reality shows; especially home improvement farces.
Fire Megyn Kelly.
Hire Jerry Boykin.

As stated above by Dusty; most important to reverse all the social engineering changes the military has been put through in the last 8 years!

There won't be a strong military with that crap continuing!

Who'll be AG and who will be the Special Prosecutor. I for one would be very interested to see all the sordid details of the Klinton Kabal spread out for all to see. Trey Gowdy?

I think there will be some stomach churning sh*t.

Ditto. Putting them in their functional AO would make the strap-hangers/sycophants look at lobbying duty as a hardship tour. No compensatory per diem; you make what the local populace makes (generally, not to drop below your grade) and subsist IN your AO. Eventually, the ticks drop off because the teat is dry and those who want to be there will be. Service, as part of something bigger than yourself.
