Good Times: When Trump rattled off a series of economic successes in his State of the Union, he could have added one more. The public´s quality of life has improved sharply in the past two years. "We have created 5.3 million new jobs and, importantly, added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs," Trump said at one point in this address. "Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades ... . Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in half a century. African-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded.

It still shows that half of this country is too stupid to believe their own eyes and ears and accept the media caterwauling instead. Wake up, America, or lose it all.

It´s not that the Dims don´t know this. It´s that the Dims don´t want it. They have a word for actual improvement in quality of life: "unfairness".

A large part of the economic success under President Trump is that he has encouraged investment and restored faith in an American future. Investments, business startups, capitalism itself all require that we believe the future can be better and we can make a profit in investing.

Americans invest in the stock market. They hire new workers, believing that their businesses will grow. Manufacturing builds new plants.

All this in opposition to the vision of America presented by the leftist demoncrats, who wish to shut down whole sectors of the economy. Energy, mining, logging, trucking, airlines. No energy, no travel, no food, no hope.

Attention Working Americans: Democrats
Want To Hike Your Taxes By $1.5 Trillion
Investor’s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 2/15/2019 6:27:17     Post Reply
Amid all the hoopla about Democrats wanting to raise taxes on the rich, they are quietly working on a bill that would increase taxes on every working family in America. Why? To fund expanded benefits for baby boomers hitting retirement. The Social Security 2100 Act would hike the combined payroll taxes paid by workers and their employers from 12.4% today to 14.8% by 2043. The bill would also apply the payroll tax on incomes over $400,000. According to the Social Security Administration, in the first 12 years alone, this would amount to a $1.5 trillion tax hike.

Could California´s Doomed Bullet

Infrastructure: California Gov. Gavin Newsom just pulled the plug on the state´s bullet train boondoggle. President Trump should demand the $3.5 billion the federal government dumped into this black hole back, so he can put it to better use building the border wall. In his State of the State speech, Newsom said he was shelving plans for a high-speed rail line from San Francisco to Los Angeles. A plan plagued with endless delays and massive cost overruns.

Middle-Class Economics: USA Today ran a surprising story on Tuesday headlined "Can the middle-class revival under Trump last?" It´s surprising — shocking really — because it might just be the first time a major news outlet has admitted that there has been a middle-class revival under Trump. We did a search for news stories that used the phrase "middle-class revival" since Trump took office. Other than the USAT story and a syndicated column written a year-and-a-half ago, we found none.

In a recent federal filing before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, lawyers for Apple (AAPL) maintained that the tech giant should not have to consider increasing its leadership´s ideological diversity and that arguments made in support of greater viewpoint variance were "without merit." The SEC disagreed, sending Apple´s legal team a stunning rebuke. Because of that decision, at next month´s annual meeting of Apple investors, its shareholders will have the chance to vote on whether the Silicon Valley-based company should seek to increase ideological diversity or continue operating in a progressive prepotency.

Tell us again how Democrats aren´t the party of open borders? On Monday, talks between congressional Republicans and Democrats over funding for border protection had broken down. Not because of Republican intransigence. They´ve already agreed

Election 2020: Starbucks tycoon Howard Schultz had barely gotten the words out of his mouth about a possible independent bid for president before an angry Democratic mob descended on him. He should ignore them. It´s a "pathetic vanity project," one said. Others threatened to boycott Starbucks. Neera Tanden, head of the left-wing Center for American Progress, called the prospect of Schultz´s running "disgusting" and said it will "help destroy democracy." Former Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said if Schultz runs it would put him at the top of the "all-time list of villains."

Big Lie: Presidential wannabe Elizabeth Warren´s obfuscation about her Native American heritage may have finally done her in. The latest shoe to drop is her 1986 registration card for the Texas bar, in which she claimed her race is "American Indian." This week, seven years after the public first learned that she´d been claiming to be a Native American, the Massachusetts senator sort of apologized for doing so. But only after the Washington Post unearthed her Texas bar registration card, filled out by hand nearly 33 years ago.

Foreign Affairs: At the tail end of his State of the Union address Tuesday night, as President Donald Trump touted his foreign policy achievements, Democrats sat stone faced. Not a surprise. But outside the House chamber, even some of Trump´s harshest critics have grudgingly acknowledged that he´s had several big wins. Shortly before the November 2016 elections, a group of 50 top Republican foreign policy experts signed an unprecedented letter forcefully denouncing the Republican candidate for president. "From a foreign policy perspective, Donald Trump is not qualified to be president and commander-in-chief,"

Media Bias: While journalists are getting pink slips across the country, the Washington Post decided to dump a boatload of cash for a Super Bowl image ad that tried to portray the news media as national heroes. Here´s a better, and much cheaper, idea to restore the industry´s shattered reputation: Be less blatantly partisan. In the 60-second ad, Tom Hanks intones about the importance of journalists against the backdrop of historic events. Thankfully, during these times, the ad says, "There´s someone to gather the facts.

On the eve of his second State of the Union address, President Donald Trump faces a country in a foul mood after the lengthy government shutdown and the bitter battle over constructing a border wall. The public´s view of the economy has soured as well, according to the IBD/TIPP Poll. However, Trump has convinced most Americans that there´s a growing crisis on the southern border. The latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows declines across the board: on presidential approval, direction of the country, financial stress, and whether the economy is improving or not.

Labor Market: The latest expectation-shattering jobs report isn´t a fluke. It´s another sign that President Trump´s economic policies are improving the lives of middle class families. The 304,000 gain in jobs reported by the Labor Department was nearly twice the consensus estimate. And it comes after December´s expectation-busting gains. There´s more. The jobs picture is so strong right now that it´s pulling people in who´ve been sitting on the sidelines. In fact, for the first time in more than 20 years,

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare a national emergency to achieve an agenda, such as gun control policy. Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.” (Photos) Speaker Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference, “You want to talk about a national

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

Atlanta—A federal labor union says some of its members found what it called a “racist book open and on display” in a Republican Georgia congressman’s Washington office. The American Federation of Government Employees said in a news release that its members were visiting the offices of U.S. Rep. Drew Ferguson on Monday when a political coordinator for the union says he saw the book “Gen. Robert Edward Lee: Soldier, Citizen, and Christian Patriot” in the lobby of the office. The union said the 1897 book that glorifies Confederate history was open to a page that read: “The blacks are immeasurably

The Trump administration´s new special envoy for Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, clashed Wednesday with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., during a House hearing on the Caracas crisis after the congresswoman tried to turn focus to Abrams´ history in Latin America while asking him point-blank whether he´d support "genocide" if it served American interests. Abrams fired back, calling the line of questioning "ridiculous" and refusing to respond to the personal "attack." The questioning was the latest moment in the spotlight for Omar, who earlier this week apologized for tweets considered anti-Semitic -- and who previously criticized what she described as a "US

His own music video that he performed in and directed in March of 2017 called “F.U.W.”, has the imagery of a black man standing under a noose.

Moore, an eight-term congresswoman, reacted to widespread prosperity across demographic lines by attempting to discredit them as short-term during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing. Moore referrred to Republican Rep.

However, a significant majority still strongly opposes any major new wall construction.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.
