Blaming Trump For Stock Market
Drop And, Well...Everything

Trump´s Crash?: The media have used the stock market plunge not as an opportunity to enlighten readers how our markets work, but as yet another occasion to bash Trump. Don´t they ever get tired of it? Given Trump´s brash, take-no-prisoners nature when it comes to the media, it´s probably not surprising they might want some payback. But they do their readers no favor by politicizing yet another essential part of American life — the stock market. After three days in which the bellwether Nasdaq stock index fell 6.7%, anti-Trump schadenfreude was pervasive on the web and in the media. We ran a quick

The market never goes up forever. If you believe it does you´re probably better off putting your cash in your mattress. One should invest for the long haul and expect reversals from time to time. It’s just the nature of the beast.

It´s a correction, not a crash. Volatility will be hire with this level of activity and increases in the economy. Kinda like growing pains.

When the stock market is way up, there are always going to be investors who are going to cash in their stocks and take their profits. When enough of those position changes take place, the market usually goes down, and that is the time for smart investors to buy stocks at the resulting lower price. That’s usually called a market correction.

That’s always been the nature of the stock market, and anyone who does not understand that should not consider investing in stocks and instead put their money in a bank savings account. All that has nothing to do with President Trump.

Considering that the market has jumped from the high teens to the high twenties, this isn´t even a correction. When it dips below 20K, then it might be considered a correction. This current media noise is a good indication of how desperate they are to find something ´bad´ to hang on President Trump. Only the dimmest bulbs in the room or new investors who bought in heavy recently are alarmed by a small DOW dip. Everyone else is considering what to buy at a slight mark down.

Fact Check: ObamaCare, Not Trump, Is
To Blame For Rise In Uninsured In 2017
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 5/14/2018 9:13:45     Post Reply
Health Care: The ranks of the uninsured climbed last year. So, naturally, President Trump is taking the blame because of his attempts to repeal ObamaCare. The fault, however, lies not with Trump, but with ObamaCare itself. A new Gallup report shows that the ranks of the uninsured climbed from 10.9% in Q4 2016 to 12.2% by Q4 2017. At first blush, it makes sense to point to Trump, given that this increase came during his first year in office. As Huffington Post put it: "Trump´s sabotage of the Affordable Care Act appears to be working." But a closer look at the data and a review of recent history shows that Trump had

California´s Self-Inflicted Housing Disaster

Housing: Some recent California headlines caught our eye: "With No Letup In Home Prices, The California Exodus Surges" and "California First In Nation To Require Solar Panels On New Homes." See the problem? California is a virtual one-party state, and suffers for it. A case in point: At the final forum for gubernatorial candidates before the June 5 state primary, lavish promises were made by Democratic candidates to build "millions" of new homes to end the state´s housing crisis. But the fact is, California´s far-left politicians created the problem, and don´t have a clue about how to solve it. As the headlines above

Nuclear Talks: President Trump´s summit with North Korea is now set for Singapore on June 12, following North Korea´s release of three Americans it held. Has Trump finally brought the Kim regime to heel? Or is this another of North Korea´s tricks to extort aid from the West in exchange for empty promises? The good news came, as it often does with President Trump, in a tweet: "I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so

Tax Revenues Jump 13% To Record
High In April — When Will Dems Admit
They Were Wrong About Trump´s Tax Cuts?

Economy: The federal government collected far more taxes this April than it did a year ago, despite the "budget busting" Trump tax cuts. So, we´ll ask again: Are the tax cuts paying for themselves? According to the latest monthly report from the Congressional Budget Office, revenues in April totaled $515 billion — a 13% increase over last April and an all-time high for the month. For the current 2018 fiscal year, which started last October, revenues are $83 billion higher than they were the year before — an increase of 4.3%. That´s a faster rate of growth than occurred during

With Mother´s Day a few days away, people are wondering what to get their mothers as a token of appreciation. Flowers are a classic gift. Beautiful bouquets are available everywhere, but customers in Louisiana are unique in that their florists must obtain licenses to practice their profession. After a bill that would have repealed the licensing requirement was defeated in the State Senate Agriculture Committee by a 6 to 1 vote, licensing will remain the case for the immediate future. Louisiana should remove this licensing requirement for florists. It would create more opportunities for would-be florists, and lower prices for people looking

IBD/TIPP Poll: Americans Support Tough
Trump Stance On Iran Nuclear Deal

Nuclear Iran: As expected, President Trump has announced he will pull the U.S. out of the failed Iran nuclear deal, barring a renegotiation of its terms. Predictably, critics on the right and left are ripping Trump´s decision. But a new IBD/TIPP Poll suggests Trump will find support for strengthening the deal from the American public. Trump called the 2015 nuclear pact a "horrible one-sided deal that should never ever have been made." Now Iran has to decide whether to walk away or renegotiate. Their decision will no doubt be influenced by the fact that Trump will now push for a reimposition

The Democrats´ War On Capitalism

Hillary Clinton recently offered yet another reason why she lost her second consecutive race for the presidency: capitalism. At the Shared Value Leadership Summit in New York City, Clinton was asked whether her self-proclaimed "capitalist" stance hurt her during the 2016 presidential primary season. "It´s hard to know," she said, "but I mean, if you´re in the Iowa caucuses and 41% of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I´m asked, ´Are you a capitalist?´ and I say, ´Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.´ You know, that probably gets lost in the ´Oh, my gosh, she´s a capitalist!´" Clinton´s right.

Politicized Justice: Democrats went gaga over a little-known law they claimed an advisor to President Trump violated following the 2016 presidential campaign. Now, the shoe´s on the other foot, and both the Democrats and the media that supported them have grown strangely quiet. The law in question is the 219-year-old Logan Act, which makes it a felony for Americans to negotiate with foreign powers in an effort to undermine the U.S. in a dispute. The law is little-known for a reason: Just two people have ever been tried under the Logan Act, and neither was convicted. But that didn´t stop Democrats and their

Hypocrisy Watch: We keep hearing how global warming is the biggest crisis facing mankind today. But a new yearlong study finds that those ringing the alarm bells the loudest are the least likely to change their own behavior. They just want everyone else to. The study divided 600 adults who reported on their climate-change beliefs into three groups: "skeptical," "cautiously worried" and "highly concerned." Then the researchers — from the University of Michigan and Cornell University — tracked how often they reported doing things like recycling, using public transportation, buying environmentally friendly consumer products, and reusing shopping bags. And they asked about

Quality Of Life Index Hits 14-Year
High Under Trump: IBD/TIPP Poll

The latest IBD/TIPP poll shows that President Trump´s job approval rating hasn´t changed, but the public is more upbeat about almost everything else. And most say impeachment talk is premature. Trump´s job approval number remains unchanged, with 38% saying they approve of the job he´s doing, while 56% disapprove. His net favorability is also unchanged from April, at -17 points (39% favorable, 56% unfavorable). However, the IBD/TIPP Presidential Leadership Index now has Trump at 42.1. That a 2.2% gain from last month and up 17% from last August, which marked Trump´s low point on this exclusive index. IBD/TIPP conducted the poll from April

Bernie Sanders´ Job-Guarantee Boondoggle
Investor´s Business Daily, by Robert J. Samuelson    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 5/7/2018 7:31:30     Post Reply
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wants the federal government to guarantee a job for every American willing and able to work. The proposal sounds compassionate and enlightened, but in practice, it would almost certainly be a disaster. The fact that it´s taken seriously is evidence that many Democrats, like Republicans before them, embrace loony economic agendas that are more public-relations gestures than sensible policy. Just precisely how Sanders´ scheme would work is unclear, because he hasn´t yet submitted detailed legislation. However, the website of the Sanders Institute favorably endorses a job-guarantee plan devised by economists at Bard College´s Levy Economics Institute. This

Taxes: One of the talking points Democrats and the left often drag out to justify reversing the Trump tax cuts is that the U.S. is "undertaxed" compared with other nations. A new study shows that´s false. Everyone from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer to socialist independent Bernie Sanders says they would reverse the tax cuts. It´s premised not on the idea that we spend too much, but that working Americans keep just too dang much of their own money. The problem is, as a new OECD study shows, that´s not true.

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the ´terrible joke´ a White House aide told about cancer-stricken John McCain and said if his own aide made such an error he would apologize. Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark. Asked if he was satisfied with the White House response, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, responded: ´No, not really.´ He called Kelly Sadler´s reported joke about McCain´s opposition to Trump CIA

Washington - Senate candidate Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday a prominent Baptist minister shouldn’t be giving the prayer that opens the US Embassy in Jerusalem because he’s a “religious bigot.” In a tweet, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee criticized Dallas minister Robert Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam. The Jerusalem Open House on Monday also lambasted Jeffress’s participation, saying he had in the past called gay rights promoters “pedophilia activists” and said homosexuality was a “perversion.” Jeffress, a Southern Baptist who vigorously

Martin Luther King Jr. once said there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance. Well, sincere ignorance had a banner day last week when President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. A CNN/ORC poll taken shortly before Trump’s decision found that a majority of Americans — 63 percent — wanted the U.S. to stay in the deal. But get this: 62 percent of Americans believed Iran had violated its terms. To me, the second result is the more alarming. That poll is proof of sincere ignorance of the deal on the part of nearly two-thirds of Americans. They are under the spell of Trump’s

A profane tirade during a parent-teacher conference this week at a Dallas elementary school led to a teacher being injured and a woman facing assault charges. The alleged attack happened Tuesday at John Neely Bryan Elementary School in east Oak Cliff. A teacher reported that a woman accused her of "pinching her nephew" and assaulted her during an 11 a.m. parent-teacher conference, according to the arrest warrant. Lakietha Lashell Lawrence, 27, was arrested by Dallas school district police officers on charges of assaulting a public servant. She was taken to the Dallas County Jail.

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of

We’re all educated by our peers and, over the years, a good portion of Donald Trump’s peers have been thugs. Operating in the New York construction world meant dealing with S&A Concrete, co-owned by "Fat Tony" Salerno of the Genovese crime family, and John Cody, the notorious head of Teamsters Local 282, who was convicted on racketeering and tax evasion charges. Building casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., brought Trump into similarly genteel circles. Trump’s hero was Roy Cohn, who unfortunately was born too late to serve the emperor Caligula.

Donald Trump is easily the most psychoanalyzed president of modern times. His decision-making style and behavior have been hotly debated by journalists, voters, politicians, world leaders and pundits who have bestowed upon him any number of fanciful, grave-sounding mental conditions, calling him, among other things, a narcissist, a sociopath, a psychopath and a paranoiac. Trump has said he distrusts mental health professionals, so we don’t have access to a formal assessment of his psychology. But colloquially speaking, perhaps the best explanation for the president’s behavior (snip) They are quick to respond to threats and to
