Why the Left Has Been So Wrong
About the Trump Boom

Investors Business Daily, by Stephen Moore

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 11/7/2017 7:46:23 AM

Time magazine´s cover story for the week of Nov. 6 is a classic. It blares: "The Wrecking Crew: How Trump´s Cabinet Is Dismantling Government As We Know It." The New York Times ran a lead editorial complaining that team Trump is shrinking the regulatory state at an "unprecedented" pace. Meanwhile, last week the stock market raced to new all-time highs; we had another blockbuster jobs report with another fall in the unemployment rate; and housing sales soared to their highest level in a decade. Are the editors at Time and the Times so ideologically blinded that they are incapable of connecting the

He is doing exactly what I, as an American who has not had a government that represents my interests for 24 years, elected him to do.

The pathetic media doesn´t know how to do any media work any more. They only know to push a narrative supplied to them by their democrat handlers. They have been made into nothing more than stooges and hacks, and they don´t even realize it!

Their voting base, whom all this narrative is really aimed at, is beginning to turn away because they are tired of the same old, same old all the time. They may not vote Republican (yet) but they have been staying home in droves!

The Left predicts Trump´s failure because they cannot bear to face his success.

All the actions of the Left are based on the claim that they are better for the People. Remember that the Left claims to be the champion of the middle and lower classes. Republicans are the greedy rich. So not only is the Left doing the BEST thing, they are more virtuous because they are doing it.

This is the same problem the Left faced in the Carter-Reagan transition. Reagan triumphed and they loathed him for it.

It will be even worse now. People have more varied means of collecting information. They KNOW that Trump is being successful and they KNOW why. That proves that BO and his supporters declaration of a "New Normal" of economic stagnation was a pathetic and disgusting lie to cover their economic failure and to protect their Leftist ideas.

Not only is this a policy failure, it is also a moral failure. The Left claims their policies, that ended up damaging the middle and lower classes, are BETTER, more FAIR. They claim a moral superiority in carrying them out. That moral superiority is FALSE. They are ignorant of reality. They are liars. They are uncaring of the damage they did and gave excuses about their failures to protect themselves.

They are NOT good people as well as failures at economics. THAT is what Trump´s success is proving and THAT is what they fear.

These same people predicted a 4% economy under 0bama for precisely the same reason they are trashing Trump´s. Economic forecasting like polling, journalism and everything else is simply a political tool to be used for furthering their agenda which the voters keep rejecting election after election.

The left believes in Marxist economics, which is like believing in the tooth fairy or the Great Pumpkin. Wonderful stuff to naive children and even some college freshmen, but pretty foolish and sad to any bright adult who is capable of logic.

Once you find someone stupid and gullible enough to believe in Marxism, you can get them to buy almost any line of BS, like MMGW, and government run health care, and gun control - all dramatically at odds with reality, failing time after time to match up with predictions of what they will do.

Leftism is a serious mental disorder.

So I can assume that Time was all in on the costly and suffocating regulations Obama put on the business community, which helped continue the economic malaise that lasted 8 years. Remember, the ´great recession´ ended very early in Obama´s 8 year failed reign.

Just getting the over-reaching regulatory branch off the backs of business and industry, is helping in significant ways.

The idea that tax relief is around the corner, is helping.

What needs to really make this thing go is to have the GOP establishment realize they could be pushing a winning hand if they simply backed this administration.

They could simply say, "it´s nice to have an administration that wants to craft an actual budget using the Appropriations process, which we have not had in the last 10 years, and created so much of the problems".

Get out in front of this whole thing instead of being an additional obstacle.
And, stop governing like you won´t be in the majority next year - that you need to get it all in one piece of legislation.

Progressives Whine about Obamacare Premiums
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/20/2017 6:20:15     Post Reply
It’s wrong, of course, to revel in the misfortune of others. I nonetheless laughed aloud when I read what the editors of the New York Times imagine is a heart-rending tale of several Obamacare supporters who, having ignored years of conservative warnings about the inevitability of premium increases under Obamacare, now lament the financial difficulties they face due to the high cost of health coverage. It would be easier to feel sympathy for these people if they admitted they were wrong about the “Affordable Care Act.” But progressives don’t do that. Instead, they blame President Trump and the GOP.

How to fix the Democratic Party
Washington Post, by Mark Penn    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/17/2017 8:54:35     Post Reply
Last week’s Democratic mini-wave has party members elated, and there is no question that the party is poised for gains in 2018 and perhaps 2020. Capitalizing on this opportunity means first understanding that Nov. 7 showed that moderate candidates offer the best chance for a bigger victory in 2018 and beyond. And to attract these candidates, Democrats need to fix their party. The Democratic mini-wave showed that in a near-swing state, a moderate Army veteran who voted for George W. Bush and opposes sanctuary cities could win a comfortable victory over a former Republican National Committee chairman and lobbyist who made

Al Franken is just the beginning

The most stupefying question prompted by Democratic Sen. Al Franken being accused of kissing and groping a woman without her consent isn´t whether he´ll be forced to resign his Senate seat, or whether the news (and Democratic reaction to it) makes it more or less likely that the Republican Senate candidate from Alabama Roy Moore will drop out of the race after multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, or whether the Senate will refuse to seat Moore in the chamber in the event that he stays in and wins the race.

Liberals’ Sudden Concern About Bill Clinton’s
Behavior Is Cynical And Self-Serving
The Federalist, by David Harsanyi    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/16/2017 7:58:23     Post Reply
In the past few days a number of notable liberals have decided to take allegations of sexual assault against former president Bill Clinton seriously. Let’s just say that discarding the Clintons when they’re no longer politically useful to retroactively grab the higher moral ground isn’t exactly an act of heroism. But if we’re going to re-litigate history, let’s get it right. “That so many women have summoned the courage to make public their allegations against Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, and Bill O’Reilly—or that many have come to reconsider some of the claims made against Bill Clinton—represents a cultural passage,” says

Tax bills give small businesses
plenty to be thankful for
The Hill, by Bernie Marcus    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/16/2017 7:52:44     Post Reply
Small-business owners have a lot to be thankful for next week. The recently introduced tax-reform bills in the House of Representatives and Senate make small-business tax cuts a centerpiece. This long overdue relief would finally address the overtaxation that most small business owners say is the biggest hurdle they face. At the moment, small businesses, the vast majority of which pay tax at individual rates, face a marginal federal tax burden of 39.6 percent. When state and local taxes are factored in, this figure can rise to 50 percent. This puts small businesses at a competitive disadvantage with their big business and

Put Roy Moore Out of His Misery
American Spectator, by Arnold Steinberg    Original Article

A generation ago a leading criminal defense attorney retained me to test arguments. The defendant — his client — was a California legislator accused of several counts of “unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.” In California this previously was called statutory rape. My survey probed a sample of voters, drawn from the particular county’s likely juror universe. As I recount in my book Whiplash! From JFK to Donald Trump, a Political Odyssey, the most persuasive argument was that “the girls waited two years” before coming forward. Each day in the long trial the lawyer reprised what I predicted would be dispositive.

Maine, Medicaid, and the Gruber Principle
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/13/2017 6:11:40     Post Reply
An aphorism much favored by my fellow dipsomaniacs goes thus: “Dogs are smarter than people. A dog won’t eat or drink anything that has made him sick in the past.” In other words, fill up Fido’s water bowl with Booker’s, let him slurp down enough to induce vomiting, and you’ll not get him near booze nor bowl again. What has this to do with Maine or Medicaid? Well, Maine experimented with Medicaid expansion 15 years ago, and it took the state a decade to recover from the hangover. Nonetheless, a majority of Maine’s voters approved another Medicaid expansion last Tuesday.

Watching the normally Trump-phobic talking heads at CNN bend themselves into pretzels to say something bad about our president´s foreign policy address in South Korea Wednesday (our Tuesday), you knew POTUS had to have scored a home run in front of that country´s National Assembly. In fact, if you had viewed the event live on television yourself, as I did here in Los Angeles, you would have known that already because Trump´s speech was superb -- at once as tough and determined toward the North Korean dictator as it was complimentary toward the miraculous achievements of the South.

Big lessons learned from Virginia,
New Jersey governor´s races
Fox News, by Douglas E. Schoen    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/8/2017 8:29:45     Post Reply
The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s

Voters in Virginia and New Jersey head to the polls Tuesday to choose new governors in the first statewide elections since Donald Trump won the presidency. With Democrats expected to pick up the New Jersey seat, all eyes are on swing state Virginia for clues about the political climate ahead of next year’s midterms. Polling shows a tight race between Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam and former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie in the final hours of a contentious and divisive campaign. The RCP average shows Northam with a 3.3 percentage-point edge, narrow enough for Democrats to be concerned

There is ample talk, particularly of late, about the threats posed by social media to democracy and political discourse. Yet one of the primary ways that democracy is degraded by platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is, for obvious reasons, typically ignored in such discussions: the way they are used by American journalists to endorse factually false claims that quickly spread and become viral, entrenched into narratives, and thus can never be adequately corrected. The design of Twitter, where many political journalists spend their time, is in large part responsible for this damage. Its space constraints mean that tweeted headlines or

Doug Jones, the Democrat running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, says he loves to hunt but the Second Amendment has “limitations.” He believes that every right enumerated in the Bill of Rights is limited, and the Second Amendment is no exception.According to the Alabama Political Reporter, Jones described himself as “a Second Amendment guy,” but stressed that some gun control is necessary. He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be

While editing ‘Vanity Fair’ in the ’80s and ’90s, Daily Beast founder Tina Brown confided some of her best dish to her now published diary, including this gem about Jackie Kennedy. Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight.

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump.

Washington - President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. (Snip) Says Trump: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!" Trump later tweeted: "Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!"
