Biden Says That Disastrous April Jobs Report Means That America is on the “Right Track”…To Where?

I believe that the Democrats knew exactly what would happen if they paid Americans more not to work than to go back to work. It’s like when pushers give addicts free drugs. – KJ

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden on Friday said the country is “still digging out of an economic collapse” amid the coronavirus pandemic, but that the U.S. is on the “right track,” as the administration reported that the economy created just 266,000 jobs in April, and saw rising unemployment.

Biden, speaking from the White House, said he took office during a “once-in-a-century pandemic and a once-in-a-generation economic crisis.”

He continued, “We knew this wouldn’t be a sprint—it would be a marathon.”

The April jobs report released Friday showed the U.S. economy heavily missed Wall Street’s expectations, adding a measly 266,000 new jobs as the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The unemployment rate also unexpectedly rose to 6.1%. While it’s still well below the April 2020 peak of 14.7%, it’s about twice the pre-crisis level, the Labor Department announced in its monthly payroll report, released Friday morning. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv said they expected the report to show that unemployment fell to 5.8% and the economy added 978,000 jobs.

“You might think we should be disappointed,” Biden said of the numbers, but claimed the “American Rescue Plan,” which passed in late March, “was designed to help us over the course of a year—not 60 days.”

“Today, there is more evidence our economy is moving in the right direction,” Biden said, while acknowledging, however, that “it is clear we have a long way to go.”

Biden, though, touted his administration, saying 1.5 million jobs have been created since he took office.

“This is progress. This is a testament to our new strategy,” Biden said. “We’ve got work to do, to state the obvious, we have work to do.”

He added: “Let’s keep our eye on the ball.”

Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called the jobs numbers “disappointing,” saying it highlighted the ” urgent need to pass President Biden’s American Jobs and Families Plans.”

She went on, “We need to take bold action to Build Back Better from this crisis by investing in our nation, our workers and our families.”

An April report by Moody’s Analytics, an economic research firm, projected that the U.S. would add 16.3 million jobs through 2030 regardless of Biden’s plan passing. Its study also revealed that Biden’s plan would only truly add 2.7 million jobs if implemented, for a total of 19 million.

Have the dimensions shifted and somehow we are all now living in Bizarro World?

Let me get this straight…

75% less jobs added and more Unemployed Americans than predicted and this is considered by the demented doddering old fool in the White House to being “on the Right Track”?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

The economy is only “on the Right Track” if you are trying to radically change our country from Free Market Capitalism (which 75% of Americans support) to a Marxist-style “Democratic Socialist” Government.

So far, during the nightmare that is the Biden-Harris Administration, Marxism is being fully embraced in the name of “Democratic Socialism”. “Political compromise” took the last plane out of town a long time ago.

Did you know that there is an actual organization named the Democratic Socialists of America?

In a document titled “Where We Stand,” DSA outlines in detail its political perspectives. Here is an excerpt…

“Social redistribution—the shift of wealth and resources from the rich to the rest of society—will require: massive redistribution of income from corporations and the wealthy to wage earners and the poor and the public sector, in order to provide the main source of new funds for social programs, income maintenance and infrastructure rehabilitation, and a massive shift of public resources from the military (the main user of existing discretionary funds) to civilian uses.”

Sound hauntingly familiar, “comrades”?

Remember when the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign?

One hundred years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on that very idea.

The unworkable theory that “Democratic Socialism” is based on is known as Marxism.

No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.

For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party who did everything they could to disrupt and interfere with the success of Former President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.

To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.

These “useful idiots” were so “out there” that they had the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared, which allowed them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for the 2020 Presidential Elections.

As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.

So, it is really no surprise that they have become which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.

But they have not become just any kind of fascists. They have become Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave.

And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution are to be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.

As I have written before, America is involved in an internal struggle, a “Civil War”, if you will, for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.

When the Marxists in the Democratic Party who declared “war” on America and her citizens found that they cold not to win the hearts of average Americans they decided to commit Election Fraud on a level which has never before been scene in America.

Regardless of what propaganda that comes out of the Administration and their minions in the Main Stream Media, the overwhelming majority of our citizens are still proud Americans who embrace traditional faith and values, including Free Market Capitalism.

Unfortunately, our nation also has a lot of “useful idiots” who do not have a clue.

And, they are who the Far Left Democrats and their puppet, President Joe Biden, are attempting to convince that a Marxist Government-based Economy is a good thing.

Bad News For Biden: The Majority of Americans Believe That They Are Better Off Than They Were 4 Years Ago

In the final week of the 1980 presidential campaign between Democratic President Jimmy Carter and Republican nominee Ronald Reagan, the two candidates held their only debate. Going into the Oct. 28 event, Carter had managed to turn a dismal summer into a close race for a second term. And then, during the debate, Reagan posed what has become one of the most important campaign questions of all time: “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” Carter’s answer was a resounding “NO,” and in the final, crucial days of the campaign, his numbers tanked. On Election Day, Reagan won a huge popular vote and electoral victory. The “better off” question has been with us ever since. Its simple common sense makes it a great way to think about elections. And yet the answers are rarely simple. – Kamarck, Elaine. “Are You Better Off Than You Were 4 Years Ago?” WBUR, September 11, 2012.

FoxNews.com reports that

A majority of voters say they are better off now than they were four years ago, according to a new Gallup poll — a result that will be seen as a good sign for President Trump’s reelection chances, and a finding the president described as “incredible.”

Gallup, in a survey between Sept. 14-28, found that 56% of registered voters said they were better off than they were four years ago, while just 32 percent said they were worse off.

This is in spite of the coronavirus pandemic, which has also led to an economic downturn and a number of pandemic-related restrictions for businesses and schools across the country. But it suggests that voters still have a strong economy that carried through the majority of Trump’s term in mind.

The number compares favorably to those of previous presidents seeking reelection. In 2012, when President Barack Obama was coming to the end of his first term, 45 percent of voters said in Dec. 2012 they were better off than four years earlier.

In Oct. 2004, when President George W. Bush was seeking re-election, 47 percent of registered voters said they were better off than in 2000.

“The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden),” Trump tweeted late Thursday. “Highest number on record! Pretty amazing!”

However, polls still show Trump down against Democratic nominee Joe Biden nationwide and in battleground states.

The Gallup poll also asked voters if the two candidates have the personality and leadership qualities that a president should have — 49% said Biden had those qualities and 44% said Trump had them.

As for whether they agreed with the candidates on the issues, 49% said they agreed with Trump and 46 percent said the same of Biden.

Here are some Economic Facts from FoxBusiness.com from an article posted on January 23rd of this year.

  • The stock market grew 31 percent in the 807 trading days before Trump’s election, but it grew by 56 percent in the 807 trading days after it, up through the third anniversary of Trump’s inauguration.
  • Manufacturing rose 3.6 percent during Trump’s three years, which was more than double the rise of 1.7 percent in the three years under Obama before that, according to government data.
  • Manufacturing employment also rose under Trump, with 487,000 manufacturing jobs created.
  • In contrast, in the three years prior to Trump’s term, manufacturing employment rose by 287,000 jobs.
  • Back on January 23rd, the unemployment rate was the lowest that it had been in 30 years.
  • Wages were at their highest point ever.
  • Lowest-income workers saw their biggest raises in 2019.
  • In 2019 the past year, nominal wages for the lowest 10 percent of American workers jumped 7 percent. The growth rate for those without a high-school diploma was 9 percent.

Joe Biden has had almost 40 years in Washington to provide “shovel-ready jobs” for American Workers.

President Trump, before the Chinese Virus hit, had turned America’s Economy around in 3 years.

I believe that the major factor concerning the ability for America’s Economy to come back is the amount of Government Aid given to small businesses to keep solvent so that they will be ready to rehire their staff and open their doors when the time comes.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy.

Mitch McConnell has said that Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Democrats will not come back to the negotiating table until after the Presidential Election.

That is because, in the midst of their Trump Derangement Syndrome, they believe that they are harming the President when in reality they have forever damaged themselves in the eyes of average Americans.

American businesses must be ready to hit the ground running as this “National Lockdown” begins to end.

Any American with common sense knows that no one ever got a job from a poor man or woman.

The Democrats must cooperate with the President and the Congressional Republicans in the matter of clearing the pathway for businesses to be able to start the engine of Capitalism moving once again.

If this happens, then just as he did the first time, President Trump will once again use his business acumen to help enable American businesses to rehire and run unencumbered.

Americans will work, they will get paid for their work, and they will spend their paycheck at other businesses, who will in turn hire more employees, etc. The same “geniuses who predict that the American Economy will not recover from this “invisible enemy” are the same ones who said that Trump would never be President and, once he was elected, said that the economy was never coming back.

The “Smartest People in the Room” also predicted that 2.2 million Americans would die from the Coronavirus. That number never materialized thanks to the actions taken by President Donald J. Trump.

Americans ARE better off than they were under Former President Barack Hussein Obama and his Vice-President Joe Biden.

America is winning our war against the Chinese Coronavirus.

Never underestimate Americans.

And, never underestimate President Donald J. Trump.

Together, we can accomplish anything that we put our minds to.

Regardless of whether the Democrats want us to or not.

Trump Brings Message of Hope in Pennsylvania, Says COVID-19 Testing May Be Overrated and Economy Will Be Improving By 4th Quarter

President-Trump-Delivers-Remarks-at-Owens-Minor-Inc.-Distribution-Center

TheHIll.com reports that

President Trump on Thursday suggested the practice of widespread coronavirus testing may be “overrated,” even as health experts insist it is critical to safely loosen restrictions and reopen businesses.

Trump boasted about the United States’s testing capabilities during remarks at a Pennsylvania medical equipment distribution center, where he announced the country has administered 10 million tests since the outbreak began.

“We have the best testing in the world,” Trump told employees at Owens & Minor Inc. in Allentown. “Could be that testing’s, frankly, overrated. Maybe it is overrated.”

“But we have the greatest testing in the world,” he added. “But what we want is we want to get rid of this thing. That’s what we want.”

The U.S. has more than 1.4 million confirmed coronavirus cases, by far the most of any country in the world. But Trump suggested the soaring infection numbers were merely a reflection of America’s testing capacity.

“We have more cases than anybody in the world, but why? Because we do more testing,” Trump said. “When you test, you have a case. When you test you find something is wrong with people. If we didn’t do any testing, we would have very few cases. They don’t want to write that. It’s common sense. We test much more.”

The Trump administration has drawn intense criticism for its slow initial rollout of coronavirus testing in February and March when the first U.S. cases were reported. Even as testing has ramped up, lawmakers have questioned why the federal government has failed to outline a national testing strategy and instead deferred to states.

The president has been relentlessly positive in assessing his administration’s performance, declaring earlier this week that the U.S. has “prevailed” on testing as he pushes for states to loosen restrictions intended to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Administration officials have pointed to the sheer volume of tests conducted in the U.S. being higher than other countries, though experts have noted places like South Korea began widespread testing much earlier and have not seen the same level of infections.

Nearly 10 million tests have been completed in the U.S. since March, according to The COVID Tracking Project, marking a significant improvement from the early days of the outbreak. The percentage of tests coming back positive has fallen below 10 percent and continues to drop, an indicator a country is doing enough testing, according to the World Health Organization.

Still, public health experts say the U.S. should be running hundreds of thousands of more tests per day before the country can safely reopen or risk new outbreaks, needless death and more economic damage.

“It was inadequate testing that precipitated the national shutdown. We must not make the same mistakes again as we open up our nation,” Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, told House lawmakers during a briefing Wednesday.

Testing varies widely from state to state and some areas are still seeing very high percentages of tests coming back positive, indicating they are not testing enough people. If states reopen without having enough testing in place, they can miss cases that turn into large outbreaks.

Trump’s testing comments on Thursday came amid a speech in which he announced the U.S. would seek to replenish its national stockpile with enough masks, ventilators and other supplies to prepare for potential future outbreaks.

“Our effort begins by dramatically increasing our reserves,” he said. “Instead of one-to-three weeks worth of supplies … the U.S. government will now stockpile three whole months, much of it made in the U.S.A.”

Trump’s remarks often took on the tone of a campaign rally. The president walked on stage to “God Bless the U.S.A.,” the same song that blares at his arena rallies when he enters. He also left the stage to the tune of his typical rally exit song, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”

In between, Trump swiped at presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden Joe by calling him “Sleepy Joe” and criticizing the Obama administration’s response to the swine flu pandemic a decade ago.

The president also chastised the media — another staple of his usual campaign rallies — and boasted about the strength of the economy before the pandemic led to staggering job losses.”

“You saw how good those numbers were, going up, up, up,” he said. “We’re going to have an interruption, but you watch what happens starting in the fourth quarter. Probably starting in the third quarter a little bit. … We’re going to be bigger and better than ever.”

President Trump makes an excellent point. The more asymptomatic cases are discovered by testing, the more cases there are to report, even though these people are walking around leading perfectly normal lives.

As you read in the above article, while President Trump was delivering a message of hope and patriotic confidence, the Democrat-led House of Representatives had a fellow Liberal from “Hahvaahd” reinforce their political talking points that we must have “adequate testing” in each state before we can open back up America.

And, who gets to determine that?

The same pointy-headed “experts” who said that we were going to lose 2.4 million Americans to the Chinese Coronavirus?

If you will notice the tone of the President’s speech, he is ready to reopen America.

I believe that while he is listening to those who are advising him on the Coronavirus Task Force, he believes that if we take too long to reopen our Sovereign Nation, we could lose it.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, agrees with him…and me.

MARIA BARTIROMO: Do you think your critics want you to keep it closed going into the election?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, I do. I do. I think it’s a political thing in addition. If it was up to some people, let’s keep it closed for a long time, okay? A long time and watch the United States go down the tubes. Not gonna happen.

RUSH: So he gets it. He knows exactly what he’s up against here, and he’s up against more than Fauci. He’s up against these blue state governors and he’s up against the media. And the media’s not chump change here. He’s up against a bunch of people — he knows that he’s the target. He knows. He knows there are a bunch of people willing to destroy this country’s economy to get rid of him. No, he’s following his instincts on this.

Those Governors, like Whitmer and Newsom, who wish to extend their state’s lockdown for months are doing it for strictly political purposes.

They, like their fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill, want to damage Trump so that he will not be reelected.

They do not care how many American lives that they have to ruin in the process.

The Democrats’ actions and reactions during this pandemic can all be attributed to their out-of-control Trump Derangement Syndrome, which began even before average Americans living in the Heartland elected Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America.

So, at this point, when a Democratic Governor or a Democrat on Capitol Hill says that state lockdowns should remain in place for the “safety of the people’, what they are doing is euthanizing our Constitutional Republic in order to clear the way for a Democratic Socialist country when they win the Presidency in November.

Don’t let them.

Trump to Sign EO “to Temporarily Suspend Immigration into the United States” to Further Fight COVID-19 and Boost the Economy

1800x1200_coronavirus_1

“Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or any class of aliens into the U.S. would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants, non-immigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions that he may deem to be appropriate,”- 8 U.S. Code § 1182 

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump announced late Monday he will soon sign an executive order “to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States” in a drastic escalation of his efforts to fight the coronavirus pandemic and boost the economy.

The declaration came hours after U.S. equity markets crashed, with oil prices turning negative for the first time in history. Also on Monday, three states — Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina — revealed plans to begin reopening some businesses.

“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!” the president tweeted.

The precise contours of the president’s planned executive order were not immediately clear. The U.S. recently agreed with both Canada and Mexico to extend border restrictions on nonessential travel for another 30 days, through May 16 and May 19, respectively.

And, the president already has blocked most travel from other hotspots, including most of Europe, Iran, South Korea, and China.

However, people with temporary work visas, students and business travelers were exempted, along with emergency personnel.

On Monday, the U.S. government said it will continue to quickly expel migrants it encounters along the border with Mexico for at least another month in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Under the U.S. policy change spurred by the virus, the U.S. government has sent some 10,000 Mexicans and Central Americans back to Mexico, according to data from the U.S.Border Patrol.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says that more than 100 migrants at 25 detention centers have tested positive for COVID-19. Guatemala claims that 44 migrants deported from the U.S. tested positive.

Monday’s immigration suspension was sure to draw fire from Democrats. On Jan. 31 Trump issued the “Proclamation on Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Nonimmigrants of Persons who Pose a Risk of Transmitting 2019 Novel Coronavirus,” blocking most travel from China — and at the time, Democrats harshly criticized the move.

Within hours, Joe Biden campaigned in Iowa and told the crowd that Americans “need to have a president who they can trust what he says about it, that he is going to act rationally about it. … This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.”

Months later, Biden said he supported China travel ban.

President Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do I he was elected Presidet: he is putting America FIRST.

His job as president is to protect American citizens from enemies foreign and domestic.

By suspending immigration to our Sovereign nation, he is protecting us from those who, intentionally or unintentionally, might bring the Chinese Coronavirus to America with them.

He is also protecting American jobs from an influx of foreign workers.

There is nothing xenophobic or hysterical about protecting America from a disease which has already killed over 40,000 of our citizens.

Immigration bans are nothing new.

The Immigration Act of 1924 was passed because America had experienced an overwhelming flood of immigrants, which strained the resources of our nation.

This act allowed all of these immigrants to be assimilated into American Society and to actually become Americans, in thought, word, deed, and LOYALTY.

Ad, in April of 1980, during the Iranian Hostage Crisis, Liberal President Jimmy Carter stopped Iranians from immigrating, because, just like the situation we faced today with Radical Islam, we were AT WAR.

Today, we are at war, again.

This time, as President Trump says, we are at war with an invisible enemy, one which does not differentiate between man and woman or adult and child.

COVID-19 knows no race or sexual orientation.

For the safety of our Sovereign Nation and the stability of our economy, President Trump must temporarily suspend immigration.

And, by his political response to an situation which endangers ALL Americans, Joe Biden has provided another reason why his is not capable of handling the job of being President of the United Stated of America.

Trump to Convene an “Opening Our Country” Taskforce of Doctors and Business Leaders…Watch Those Who Object

WATCH-White-House-Task-Force-Briefing-On-Coronavirus-Response-831821320-1586538923

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump said Friday that choosing when to move to reopen the U.S. economy amid the coronavirus pandemic would be “the biggest decision I’ve ever had to make.”

“I want to get it open as soon as possible,” Trump told reporters at Friday’s briefing with members of the White House task force. “This country was meant to be open and vibrant and great.”

The president added that he would formally convene an “Opening our Country” task force April 14 that will be comprised of doctors and business leaders. According to Trump, the second, smaller task force would “include names that you have a lot of respect for.”

In an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the governors of 42 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico have issued so-called “stay-at-home” orders advising residents to remain indoors except to perform essential work, duties or chores.

Those orders, as well as federal social distancing guidelines and restrictions on public gatherings, have ground large portions of the U.S. economy to a halt. According to the Labor Department, more than 16.8 million people have filed for unemployment insurance since the middle of March, when the federal coronavirus guidelines went into effect.

As of Friday afternoon, Johns Hopkins University said that there were more than 486,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. and more than 18,000 deaths caused by the virus. More than 40 percent of U.S. deaths have happened in New York state, which reported 777 new deaths on Friday.

Trump made a point Friday of saying that he would continue to listen to health experts like Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx while considering when to relax the federal guidance. Health experts have warned that if the country rolls back restrictions too quickly, case levels could once again begin to soar, especially without widespread testing to determine who might be a carrier of the virus.

“I listen to them about everything,” the president said, adding: “We’re not doing anything until we know that this country is going be healthy. We don’t want to go back and start doing it over again.”

While the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms for most people, for some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness or death. And research has shown that people can be highly infectious even if they are not displaying symptoms.

Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-diseases expert, told CNN earlier Friday that there will be coronavirus cases whenever the restrictions are relaxed.

“When we decide, at a proper time, when we’re going to be relaxing some of the restrictions, there’s no doubt you’re going to see cases,” he said. “The question is how you respond to them.”

The Chinese Coronavirus “Invasion” has indeed been a crisis.

A crisis intensified by faulty modeling and those who embrace a political ideology which values a Nanny State-style Federal Government over individual freedom.

And, these leaders, both covertly and overtly, use the power which their leadership role bring them to attempt to strength the power of the political party which they support at the expense of the president, the American economy, and last but not least, the American people.

Now, don’t get me wrong. every death brought about by the coronavirus is a serious matter regardless of what country they were living in.

However, America strength and continued existence as a nation relies on a strong, vibrant economy, such as the one we were experiencing before the coronavirus hit out shores.

It is essential that Americans be allowed to go back to work as soon as safely possible.

Our American Workforce, their inventiveness, work ethic, and passion are what drives the American Engine of Capitalism, an engine that was finally tuned up and allowed to run full out by a president who understands its power and its role in our country’s place in the world.

There is a reason why China, since the Obama Administration first allowed them to, has sought our brightest minds to come work for THEM.

American Ingenuity is the stuff of legends.

Our forefathers were thinkers AND doers.

We are a society which has always been on the move, whether it was from east to west, north to south, or to the moon and back.

While we are a nation of motivated individuals, we are also a people who can not thrive in isolation.

Dr. Fauci has claimed that Americans will not be shaking hands in greeting each other or sealing a business deal.

Wanna bet?

Americans are made of stronger stuff than that.

When the president and his new taskforce let us know the plans for getting America back to work, there will not only be a lot of handshaking going on, I will bet you that there will be actual hugging going on as well.

And, that will be from the wives and mothers ready for their husband and their children to be out of the house for a while, instead of under foot driving them crazy.

By the way, if you notice those who are calling for Americans to stay under quarantine the longest, they are usually the same ones who wanted America to fail since Trump got elected President.

I’m just sayin’.

Trump Predicts a “Big Bounce” of an Economic Comeback After the Coronavirus Lockdown is Over…Why He is Right

1054122335

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1247900240155295745

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump on Thursday predicted a “big bounce” as he argued the U.S. economy will recover quickly from the massive hit it has taken because of the coronavirus pandemic — despite 16.8 million Americans losing their jobs in just the last three weeks.

As he teased possible deals to help out the ailing airline industry and help oil prices recover, Trump said he was confident that the flagging U.S. economy would come back from the drubbing taken since it was effectively shut down from the current pandemic.

“The economy is just going to do very well,” Trump said at the daily coronavirus taskforce briefing at the White House. “I think we’re going to have a big bounce…we’re going to open up very strong.”

Trump’s bravado was juxtaposed by the staggering jobs numbers from the week in which 6.6 million more Americans filed for unemployment benefits. Those number now mean that one in every 10 working Americans have lost their job in the last three weeks.

The figures collectively constitute the largest and fastest string of job losses in records dating to 1948. By contrast, during the Great Recession it took 44 weeks — roughly 10 months — for unemployment claims to go as high as they now have in less than a month.

The job market is quickly unraveling as businesses have shut down across the country. All told, in the past three weeks, 16.8 million Americans have filed for unemployment aid. The surge of jobless claims has overwhelmed state unemployment offices around the country. And still more job cuts are expected.

More than 20 million people may lose jobs this month. The unemployment rate could hit 15% when the April employment report is released in early May.

The viral outbreak is believed to have erased nearly one-third of the U.S. economy’s output in the current quarter. Forty-eight states have closed non-essential businesses.

The president’s optimistic outlook on economic recovery is not shared by some of the world’s top economists who say there are emerging signs that any recovery will fail to match the speed and severity of the economic collapse that occurred in just a few weeks. The 2020 presidential and Senate elections likely will take place as the world’s largest economy is still attempting to climb back from the deadly outbreak.

“Anyone who assumes we’re going to get a sharp snapback in activity isn’t thinking about how consumers are going to feel. They’re going to be very cautious,” said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Markit. “Households and businesses have seen their finances deteriorate. People are buying groceries on their credit cards.”

If there is one bright spot, it is that Wall Street closed out its best week in 45 years on Thursday after the Federal Reserve launched its latest titanic effort to support the economy through the coronavirus outbreak.

…Trump’s press briefing began shortly after he finished a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin and King Salman of Saudi Arabia regarding global oil prices and the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. Russia recently announced a deal with OPEC to cut down its oil production in an effort to prop up global prices.

Trump has said that output could be cut by as much as 15 million barrels a day, or about 15 percent of global production, though experts said that was unlikely. Instead, OPEC and Russia announced on Thursday that it cut the amount to 10 million barrels per day, or 10 percent of global supplies. Reductions of five million barrels per day are expected to come from other nations to help alleviate the largestt oil crisis in decades.

When I read the above article, I could not believe how absolutely gloom and doom negative that the writer was about Trump being able to restore our economy to the juggernaut that it was before the Chinese Coronavirus came to our shores.

Then I remembered that Rupert Murdoch was no longer in charge of Fox News Channel, his sons and their Liberal wives were, along with Never-Trumper Paul Ryan, among others.

I believe that the major factor concerning the ability for America’s Economy to come back is the amount of Government Aid given to small businesses to keep solvent so that they will be ready to rehire their staff and open their doors when the time comes.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy.

Mitch McConnell suggested that more money be allotted to small business right now and Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Democrats denied it because that would get in their way of tanking Trump’s Economy and making America a Socialist Paradise after they win the 2020 Presidential Election.

American businesses must be ready to hit the ground running once this “National Lockdown” is over with.

Any American with common sense knows that no one ever got a job from a poor man or woman.

The Democrats must be maneuvered into cooperating with the President and the Congressional Republicans in the matter of clearing the pathway for businesses to be able to start the engine of Capitalism moving once again.

If this happens, then just as he did the first time, President Trump will once again use his business acumen to help enable American businesses to rehire and run unencumbered.

Americans will work, they will get paid for their work, and they will spend their paycheck at other businesses, who will in turn hire more employees, etc. The same “geniuses who predict that the American Economy will not recover from this “invisible enemy” are the same ones who said that Trump would never be President and, once he was elected, said that the economy was never coming back.

The “Smartest People in the Room” also predicted that 2.2 million Americans would die from the Coronavirus. That number has been revised to 60,000 and will probably be revised to an even lower number.

Never underestimate Americans.

We can accomplish anything that we put our minds to.

Cory Booker Gives Obama Credit for Trump’s Booming Economy…Larry Kudlow Corrects Him

D99C3857-7A5B-4BAF-86F4-67119B71C1CB

FoxNews.com reports that

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow denounced Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Sunday after the 2020 White House candidate said President Trump was “taking credit for a recovery that started under [former President Barack] Obama.”

“What Mr. Booker and some others are saying is simply not true factually,” Kudlow told Fox News’ “America’s News HQ”.

Kudlow spoke two days after the publication of the April jobs report, which showed that the American economy added 263,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1969. Despite the rosy numbers, Booker insisted that the boom’s effects were not being felt across all economic levels.

“You have people on my block – I’m the only presidential candidate that lives in a low-income inner-city neighborhood. Talk to folks, and they’ll tell you: ‘I have to work two jobs just to try to keep myself in housing. And, by the way, that housing isn’t reflected in any of my family,'” Booker said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Americans are struggling. Their wages are too low … for the last four decades, I don’t think they’ve budged that much … We’ve got to make sure that this is a shared recovery, because, right now, it definitely is not.”

Kudlow emphatically begged to differ.

“I’m just gonna use the damn facts,” he told Fox News’ Leland Vittert. “On the wage front, [average hourly earnings are] rising 3.2 percent overall. The bottom [poorest] quarter [of workers], 4.4 percent increase, the top quarter, 3.5 percent [increase].”

“First of all, both are good and a rising tide is lifting all boats,” Kudlow added. “But the point I’m making is, it’s the blue collar people that have the fastest job expansion and it’s the blue collar people that have the best wage growth.”

Kudlow reacted to the April jobs report in a video posted on the White House’s Instagram page Friday afternoon.

“Wow! Low unemployment, high jobs, high wages, big consumer confidence, major productivity and no inflation,” said an enthusiastic Kudlow while gesturing toward the camera. “It’s totally awesome. We’re killing it on the economy.”

“I don’t know how I had the energy to do that,” Kudlow said Sunday. “I just walked out and, I don’t know, man, let her rip. These are blowout numbers. The economy is going great guns and POTUS’ [Trump’s] policies, to be perfectly honest, his policies to rebuild this economy have entered us into a tremendous prosperity cycle. And I don’t see any end to it right now.”

 

Trump has delivered what he promised: a stronger economy and more jobs.

Americans are more concerned with providing for themselves and their families than they are with the silly “Social Justice Warrior” Political Games which the Democratic Socialist Party, as exemplified by Cory Booker, continues to play.

Quite frankly, the reason that Obama Presidency did not move our economy forward, like President Trump is in the process of doing, is because Obama was more concerned about growing the Central Government, than he was about growing American Production by freeing the job creators from punitive tax rates, in order to encourage the growth that will revitalize our economy.

That is why I once spent 6 hours on a Saturday, on the phone with Punjab from Calcutta about my Comcast Cable Box, which was on the fritz.

But, I digress…

Make no mistake, granting amnesty to millions of unskilled, underage illegal aliens would have done and still would do nothing for the health of our economy.

This action would simply provide future voters for the Democrat Party, which is now, as I wrote earlier, firmly in the control of the Far Left.

A popular Liberal Defense that was going around during Obama’s Presidency was the claim that President Ronald Reagan actually had a bigger Federal Government than Obama.

The funny part is: It’s true.

It was larger because President Reagan, through his sound Economic Policy, actually increased tax revenues.

American Production rose, therefore, TAX REVENUES INCREASED.

Yes, “Trickle-Down Economics”, “trickled up”, allowing for a well-funded, strong American Military and Administration.

You see, boys and girls, that’s the secret of American Exceptionalism, a concept that Obama always gave lip service to, but, clearly, never believed in.

For America to prosper, we must remain free. For America to remain free, we must be prosperous.

American Capitalism is the engine which drives a strong, vibrant economy. American Capitalism is the result of the courageous Entrepreneurial Spirit of American Citizens. The same “Can Do” attitude which led to Western Expansion and triumphs against those before-mentioned enemies, foreign and domestic.

If Americans had elected Hillary Clinton as President on that historic night of November 8, 2016, America’s economy would still be swirling down the ol’ porcelain receptacle as it was when Obama left office.

It would have been, except Americas did not elect another clueless politician, like Obama and Hillary.

Instead, Americans elected a Citizen Statesman with Real World Experience who is not afraid to remind those whomever he is negotiating with that he is always willing to walk away from the table and that he is THE Master of “The Art of the Deal”.

President Trump is succeeding as President because of his ability to focus on the challenges he faces and to come up with innovative, common-sense solutions.

His popularity continues to rise dues to average Americans’ appreciation of a President who puts America first.

And as Trump continues on his mission to Make American Great Again, all the Democrats have to contribute is hate, divisiveness, and their memories of a FAILED PRESIDENCY.

And, that is not an election-winning Party Platform to run on.

While Democrats Play “Social Justice Warriors”, They Destroy Any Chance of Gaining Back the White House. “It’s the Economy, Stupid.” (A KJ Analysis)

Wash-Bust-600-CDN

This past week, I have been looking at various aspects of the fallout from the riot at Charlottesville, VA last Saturday, which renewed a ISIS-like mission among Modern American Liberals, including the Democratic Party, to rid America of Confederate Monuments, which “offend” them.

There is one problem with that: The Democrats are torqueing off the very Americans who are the key to getting them back into power in Washington, DC.

According to apnews.com,

President Donald Trump’s widely criticized response to white supremacist violence in Virginia has left Democrats in a quandary: how to seize the moral high ground without getting sucked into a politically perilous culture war. Democrats have denounced Trump for blaming “both sides” for deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and, more recently, for defending Confederate monuments.

But the party faces a complex task: While addressing race and history in ways that reflect the party’s values, Democrats also need to focus on issues like jobs and the economy that resonate with a wider range of voters, including white independents, ahead of the 2018 midterm election.

The party has been looking to answer Trump’s populism by crafting its own middle-class brand, yet Democratic leaders across multiple states now are pushing to take down Old South monuments like the one that ostensibly sparked the events in Charlottesville, and three rank-and-file House Democrats want to pursue a congressional censure of the president.

In interviews this week before his resignation was announced Friday, White House strategist Steve Bannon gleefully suggested Democrats are falling into a trap.

“I want them to talk about racism every day,” Bannon told The American Prospect, a liberal magazine. “If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”

Trump himself has called Confederate memorials, most of them actually erected decades after the Civil War, “beautiful statues” that reflect “our nation’s history and culture.”

Polls taken after last weekend’s violence offer some evidence backing Bannon’s and Trump’s view. While polls found widespread disgust with white supremacists, a Marist Poll for NPR and PBS found that just 27 percent of adults queried believe Confederate monuments “should be removed because they are offensive.” About two out of three white and Latino respondents said they should remain, as did 44 percent of black respondents.

Andrew Young, a Democrat, civil rights leader and former U.N. ambassador, warned this week that the monuments are “a distraction.” He told reporters in Atlanta it is “too costly to refight the Civil War.”

Boyd Brown of South Carolina, a former state lawmaker and onetime member of the Democratic National Committee, says Democrats are right to oppose Confederate monuments and criticize Trump’s remarks. “He tweets something crazy, we react — and we’re not wrong,” Brown said. But “we have to talk about a lack of jobs and education in poor districts, voter suppression laws. Ask why Medicaid funding is always the target. And then explain how all those things hurt more than just African-Americans.”

Trump upset Democrat Hillary Clinton on the strength of his support from white voters, particularly working-class whites who possessed a combination of economic frustration and racial resentments salved by Trump’s promises of immigration controls, law-and-order and a booming economy.

Clinton, meanwhile, concentrated so much on Trump’s deficiencies and outlandish statements that her own policy proposals received less attention. That’s a problem that has beset Trump rivals since he first declared his candidacy: All the attention focused on Trump — even unflattering stories — prevent them from getting out their own messages.

Brian Fallon, who was spokesman for Clinton’s campaign, said Democrats shouldn’t let that happen after Charlottesville.

“As horrifying as what the president has said is, you have to have an affirmative agenda,” he said.

Still, Fallon praised Democratic efforts to keep Trump and Republicans on the defensive over the president’s response — even if it doesn’t help them politically.

“Sometimes it’s important to take a stand regardless of the electoral impacts,” he said, noting that Clinton delivered a speech last year warning of white nationalists’ rise alongside Trump’s campaign.

Democrats have tried various tactics to press the Charlottesville issue. Besides the push to censure Trump and remove monuments, they are planning voter organization drives across the United States.

Andrew Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, Florida, and candidate for governor, is among the Democrats calling for monuments to be moved to museums or cemeteries.

Gillum, who is black, says Democrats must argue “these monuments have been weaponized. We can’t pretend that didn’t happen.”

The issue is reminiscent of South Carolina’s decision to remove the Confederate battle flag from statehouse grounds in 2015 after a white gunman killed nine people at a historic black church in Charleston. Then-Gov. Nikki Haley, a Republican who is now Trump’s United Nations ambassador, declared the flag untenably divisive after the wide distribution of photos showing the killer clutching it.

“She was focused on leading the state through a grieving process so it could begin healing,” recalls Rob Godfrey, one of her top aides at the time.

But Godfrey notes Haley never considered jettisoning other Old South relics.

“That was going to drive people apart,” Godfrey says.

Americans are more concerned with providing for themselves and their families than they are with the silly “Social Justice Warrior” Political Games which the Democratic Party, which is being run by the Far Left, is playing.

Meanwhile, President Trump is hard at work trying to grow out economy by stimulating job growth. However, there are still well over 9 million Americans who are no longer a part of America’s Work Force.

Who are these people?

They are average Americans like you and me, who, in their very real despair, have given up trying to find a job, choosing instead to work under the radar as handymen or flea market vendors. some not even working at all, sitting at home and letting Uncle Sugar take care of them.

When you ask Liberals about this unacceptable situation, they will respond to you with charts and graphs designed to buttress their opinion that Former President Obama actually moved America’s Stagnant Economy forward.

And, if that argument doesn’t work, their pre-programmed response is

But…but…Booosh!!!

Quite frankly, the reason that Obama Presidency did not move our economy forward, like President Ronald Reagan did, is because Obama was more concerned about growing the Central Government, than he was about growing American Production by freeing the job creators from punitive tax rates, in order to encourage the growth that will revitalize our economy.

That is why I once spent 6 hours on a Saturday, on the phone with Punjab from Calcutta about my Comcast Cable Box, which was on the fritz.

You see, boys and girls, that’s the secret of American Exceptionalism, a concept that Obama always gave lip service to, but, clearly, never  believed in.

For America to prosper, we must remain free. For America to remain free, we must be prosperous.

American Capitalism is the engine which drives a strong, vibrant economy.  American Capitalism is the result of the courageous Entrepreneurial Spirit of American Citizens. The same “Can Do” attitude which led to Western Expansion and triumphs against those before-mentioned enemies, foreign and domestic.

The current state of the Shining City Upon a Hill can be summarized thusly:

America was formed by men seeking FREEDOM. She grew and prospered because of an indomitable will and spirit forged through the Refiner’s Fire, guided by the common-sense words, inscribed in our Constitution, and administered through a Constitutional Republic. Our nation’s largesse and strength comes through the actions and character of her citizens, not through the usurpation of power by professional politicians, who have long since lost touch with their constituency.

Obama’s attempt to “radically change” our nation into a Third World Barrio was met with resistance, not because of professional politicians, but, because of the defiance of the American People, who love their country.

It was this Defiant Spirit which caused Americans to elect American Entrepreneur and Businessman Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.

It was also on display in the Marist Poll mentioned above.

Rest assured, President Trump recognizes whom he owes his Presidency to.

Conversely, the Democrats view us as “piggy banks” through which to fund their Social Justice Crusades.

On November 8th, we proved that America’s Heritage of God and Country is still alive and well in the hearts and minds of the overwhelming majority of the citizens in this country, even those who have dropped out of the workforce.

A President’s role, if he wants to be viewed positively as a world leader, is to work to restore America to a position of strength, both in foreign and domestic policy.

President Trump understands the mandate that he has been given and has been very busy in the last 7 1/2 months serving Americans by making deals to bring back jobs to employ Americans, which will help to stimulate the economy, which in turn will help to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN .

He understands that it all starts with the Engine That Drives Our Country.

And, President-elect Trump already has his hand on the throttle.

Oh…and one more thing…

The Russians did not stop Hillary from continuing Obama’s “Legacy”.

FED UP AVERAGE AMERICANS DID!!!

So, keep torqueing us off, Democrats.

You will never get back into power in Washington, DC.

Thank God.

“It’s the Economy, Stupid”: West Virginia Coal Miner Confronts Hil for Giving Them the Shaft

image

The disconnect between Professional Politicians and the average American has never been more evident then it is currently, as is being illuminated by the primary presidential elections.

Foxnews.com reports that

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was confronted Monday at a campaign stop in West Virginia by a laid-off coal worker over previous comments she made that “we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

 

Clinton was attending a panel discussion with residents and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin in Williamson, W. Va. when she was asked a question by Bo Copley, who told her he was a laid off worker in the coal industry.

 

“I just want to know how you can say you’re going to put a lot of coal miners out of, out of jobs, and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend, because those people out there don’t see you as a friend,” Copley said, sometimes breaking into tears, as the chants of the protesters were heard outside.

 

Clinton however said her comments in March were a “misstatement,” and that she has been talking about helping out coal country “for a very long time.”

 

“What I was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs,” Clinton said Monday. “That’s what I meant to say, and I think that that seems to be supported by the facts. I didn’t mean that we were going to do it, what I said was, that is going to happen unless we take action to try to and help and prevent it.”

 

Clinton released a $30 billion plan last fall aimed at aiding communities dependent on coal production and she’s promised that her husband would focus on revitalizing the region.

 

Manchin came to Clinton’s defense on Monday.

 

“If I thought that was in her heart, if I thought she wanted to eliminate one job in West Virginia I wouldn’t be sitting here,” he said. “I think Hillary knows that. She wouldn’t be here if she felt that way. There is no way you could come into this type of a setting and the way that people are hurting so bad unless you want to help them.”

 

Copley however told Manchin he didn’t believe that his endorsement of Clinton was a good move.

Gee, DiNozzo. Ya think?

The intellectual hubris required for Hillary Clinton to campaign in an area that her and the rest of the Democrat Party has laid barren, through the over-regulation and basically, shutting down of an industry, which provides the overwhelming majority of jobs in that region, is unfathomable.

A FOX News poll from two weeks ago shows Republican Donald Trump leading Ted Cruz by 18 points, while Democrat Hillary Clinton now only has a two-point lead over Bernie Sanders.

Voters polled believe Donald Trump has the best chance of beating Hillary Clinton this fall, but they don’t think he’s the right person to negotiate with Russian President Vladamir Putin, Clinton fits that bill instead.

65% of Republicans think Trump has the knowledge to effectively serve as President, while only 12% of Democrats do.

So why do you suppose, that Trump was picked by the Americans participating in this poll, to have the best chance of beating Clinton?

As I have related before, the answer is simple.

 

It’s the economy, stupid.

 

In that same poll, those responding said that the economy is the single most important issue in the upcoming presidential election. Donald J Trump is a self-made billionaire. He knows how to create jobs. He understands Capitalism, the engine that runs America and her economy, don’t want a trumpet some self made billionaire. He knows how to create jobs.

Hilary, just like her former boss, Barack Hussein Obama, believes in “sharing the wealth”. She is just as big a socialist as Bernie Sanders.

Americans understand that fact.

When the only jobs that an economy is adding every month are government jobs, that country is moving in the wrong direction.

Too many Americans have been out of work for too long a period of time.

As we journey through this Quixotic Quest, known as our everyday lives, we come across windmills, which we must tilt with daily, known as “priorities”.

Priorities are unique, perplexing things, as they vary from individual to individual.

For those Americans between employment, it is finding a meaningful, well-paying job, so that we may provide for our families. For other Americans, it could be the care of their elderly loved ones. For others, their priority may be to climb the Corporate Ladder at their place of employment.

For the parents of 30-year-old Liberals and “puff puff” “l”ibertarians, it may be that their priority is to get their slacker of a “kid” to move out of the basement.

But, I digress…

The anger of average Americans, which I have spoken of in past posts, is a direct result of the failed Foreign and DOMESTIC Policies, of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, which have affected Americans’ daily lives, including our Household Incomes. These policies have been exacerbated by the Republican Elite, who, in their desire to “reach across the aisle” and “go along to get along”, have distanced themselves from the Middle Class Average Americans, like you and me, who elected them to Congress in the first place.

Those whom we have sent to serve us up on Capitol Hill, seem to be more intent on expanding government and feathering their own nests, then they are about creating a robust economy, and keeping the Engine of Capitalism, which has been responsible for our country’s growth, free from restrictive and burdensome taxes and Government Regulations, designed to keep American Businesses “under the thumb” of “Big Government”.

Meanwhile, these same average Americans, (i.e., you and me), remain mired up to our necks in an abysmal swamp of bills and taxes, living paycheck-to-paycheck, afraid to make a move, for fear of drowning in an ocean of debt.

Americans are tired of the empty promises that they have heard since 2009, made by professional politicians on both sides of the political aisle.

Seemingly forgotten, in all of these forgotten promises, made by Barack Hussein Obama, and Establishment Democrats and Republicans, alike, are the 94 million Americans, who are no longer, largely through no fault of their own, participating in our Workforce.

…like the Coal Miners of West Virginia, whose ability to provide for their families has been sacrificed to the gods of Environmental Activism and Political Correctness, by the “Smartest People in the Room”, the Far Left Radicals, who infest the Modern Democrat Party, including the Presumptive Democrat Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton.

That is why Donald J. Trump is still continuing to enjoy a commanding lead in the Republican Primary Elections

The majority of Americans have had their fill of Professional Politicians, who promise the Moon, but deliver dust.

It is time to replace those Professional Politicians, like Hillary Clinton, who value Government Regulations and Bureaucracy more than the American citizens, whom they have taken an oath to serve.
