Tucker Carlson: Americans Want More than a Nice President – Americans Want Justice!

The Tucker Carlson Show on FOX cable is one of the best political shows on TV. Tucker’s comments, questions, observations and rebuttals are outstanding. There are only a few news cable shows on all of TV that support the truth and give our President Trump a fair assessment, and Tucker’s is one of them. However, tonight Tucker missed the ball.

The show started on a very high note sharing the President’s rally in Youngstown, Ohio. However, once the rally was over, Carlson couldn’t have been more wrong in his assessment of the President’s tweets today related to his Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The reason is because Americans want Justice!

Carlson complained that the President was wrong in tweeting his harassing tweets about AG Jeff Sessions.

The President started by tweeting –

Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – “quietly working to boost Clinton.” So where is the investigation A.G.

Next the President tweeted –

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails and DNC server) & Intel leakers!

Then the President tweeted –

Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!

And finally the President stood up for his son in law tweeting –

Jared Kushner did very well yesterday in proving he did not collude with the Russians. Witch Hunt. Next up, 11 year old Barron Trump!

Of course the President was not nice in sending these tweets. Of course Sessions was one of the few in Washington to support President Trump during the campaign. Of course Americans are grateful to Sessions for his support of Trump when very few from the Washington Deep State establishment supported the future President. But Carlson is misses the point.

When Americans at Trump rallies screamed – “CNN Sucks”, “Build That Wall”, “Lock Her Up” and “Drain the Swamp” – they meant it. These were not repeated at every rally because they were funny or easy to share, they resonated because they summed up in a very few words what America was yearning for years – a fair and honest media; security, boundaries, property rights and a government that promoted security; Hillary Clinton brought to justice; and, Obama and the rest of the DC swamp eliminated and sent to jail when appropriate.

Two of the four chants were directly related to bringing justice back to the country! Americans were tired of a set of laws for some and none for the elites. Trump saw this and stood for justice and that is why he won.

Americans wanted a General not a nice guy!

When Jeff Sessions recused himself from any Russia related investigations – he screwed Trump. He seemed like such a nice guy – now some wonder if he is just another snake in the swamp.

For years good, hard working Americans have watched as dishonest, corrupt and criminal acts were perpetuated by our politicians. The Clintons and Obama were the most corrupt and criminal group of misfits ever to enter the White House. They lied about nearly everything (Whitewater, Benghazi, their creation of ISIS, Obamacare, Email scandals, Clinton Foundation racketeering, etc…). The list goes on and on. When they deemed necessary they lied about the deaths of Americans in Benghazi and imprisoned an innocent filmmaker to cover their tracks.

The President promised justice and his AG responded with a fake news Russia investigation and perhaps more shocking, no known investigations into the Obama administration or the Clintons to date.

It came to a head yesterday when the President watched his beautiful, handsome and supportive son-in-law, a beautiful young man whom he loves like his own sons, give a speech outside the White House explaining what he shared with investigators who requisitioned him for questioning related to the fake Russia story.

Jared Kushner said –

When my father-in-law decided to run for President I served his campaign the best I could because I believe in him and his ability to improve the lives of all Americans! And now, serving the President and the people of the United States has been the honor and privilege of a lifetime…”

What is going on with the false Russia Conspiracy lie is dishonest, abusive, sinister and evil. Good Americans, including our President and his family are under attack.

AG sessions is responsible for these attacks. Americans don’t want an honest President who truly cares for the American people under attack.

Americans want justice!

 

 

President Trump Hits Sessions and Crooked Hillary in Series of Tuesday Morning Tweets

President Trump heard us. Last week we noted that the President was doing a masterful job at almost everything he has touched since his inauguration. The economy is charging ahead in almost all areas due to the President and much has been accomplished (See six month list of accomplishments here).

The President was doing great pointing out the hypocracy in the main stream media (MSM) by attacking CNN. The mantra “CNN Sucks” shouted out at the President’s rallies before the election was being addressed.

The President also cut illegal immigration by 70% and so although the wall wasn’t built, illegal immigration was nearly shut down. President Trump has some work to do but “Bulid the Wall” was being addressed.

But last week we argued that “Lock Her Up” and “Drain the Swamp” were both in need of attention. A special investigation was in place but it wasn’t addressing the criminal Clinton campaign and Obama Administration, it was the fake Russia story that was being investigated. In spite of no evidence to date of any wrong doing by the Trump Administration, either before or since the inauguration, his administration was being reviewed by a former Head of the FBI who clearly has an agenda to attack the President. Mr. Mueller hired only Clinton and Obama supporters to get to this President.

This morning the President began his attack of the “Swamp” and “Hillary” through a series of tweets –

He started by tweeting –

Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – “quietly working to boost Clinton.” So where is the investigation A.G.

Next the President tweeted –

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails and DNC server) & Intel leakers!

Then the President tweeted –

Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!

And finally the President stood up for his son in law tweeting –

Jared Kushner did very well yesterday in proving he did not collude with the Russians. Witch Hunt. Next up, 11 year old Barron Trump!

Sean Hannity also did a good job defining the corruption and crimes with Obama and Hillary and the Deep State that have yet to be addressed –

Looks like the Hillary and creatures of the swamp better look out because when this President is directed there is no stopping him.

Democrat’s New Slogan Not Connected with Reality – Their Policies Lead to Fewer Jobs and Lower Wages

Democrats are unveiling the new slogan this afternoon – “Better skills, better jobs, better wages”. However, they have no history of creating better wages or better jobs and the only skillset they may have is pushing the “Russia, Russia, Russia!” conspiracy fake news story.

Under President Obama the Democrats were everything but creators of better jobs and better wages. The Democrats under Obama destroyed entire industries like coal, oil, gas and energy jobs in America.

Under the last Democratic President (Obama) according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the US lost more than (3,826,000) jobs in his first six months in Office. These numbers are pathetic when compared to President Trump who has added a projected 1,027,000 jobs in his first six months (January through June 2017.) The Democrats certainly have nothing to brag about here.

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate since President Trump’s inauguration decreased from 4.8% to 4.4% (January through June 2017). The unemployment rate in January 2017 was 4.8% and by June it was down to 4.4%.

Unemployment under President Obama on the other hand moved in the opposite direction. In his first six months as President the US unemployment rate increased each month from 7.8% in January 2009 to 9.5% by June of 2009.

Where President Trump is averaging an unemployment rate of 4.5%, President Obama averaged unemployment numbers at 7.8%. However, President Obama averaged an unemployment rate of 9% over his first team, twice that of President Trump and Obama’s 10% unemployment rate in October of 2009 set a modern day record.

As far as wages go the Democrats are no experts at raising wages either. According to the US FRED the median income in the US during the Obama years dropped drastically through the Obama Administration’s entire first term and never did rebound to where it was under President Bush before when Obama took over.

The Democrats really have no reason to believe that their policies have any positive impact on wages or jobs. Their policies under President Obama hurt the middle class and decreased both jobs and wages.

Maybe the Democrats should just stick with fake news Russia?

Speaker Ryan’s Congress Reaches 200 Days Today with Obamacare and Massive Taxes Still in Place!

President Donald Trump won the November 8, 2016 election in an electoral landslide.

President Trump captured several states that have not voted Republican in decades.

Riding on his coattails the Republican Party also won back the House of Representatives and won a majority in the US Senate.

In spite of all this, you could easily see that Republican Leadership was not on board with the newly elected President. In every picture taken of Speaker Paul Ryan near the President, the leader of the House of Representatives looks angry.

Speaker Ryan has some sort of evil disgruntled smirk on his face when he is with our President.

Speaker Ryan never supported President Trump before the election. Before the election Speaker Ryan gathered all House Republicans together on a conference call and announced that he would not defend President Trump, now or in the future.

Speaker Ryan was never behind candidate Trump or President Trump. When candidate Trump announced his tax plan after he was nominated the Republican candidate for President, Speaker Ryan announced his own plan.

There is no synergy between the House and President Trump since before the election. Initial observations would suggest that Speaker Ryan and his Congress are not behind the President. Speaker Ryan and his House may even be against the President.

The new Republican President wanted to pass tax cuts, repeal Obamacare and build a border wall in his first 100 days. But no matter how hard President Trump and his team worked, the Republican Congress was not going to work with him. They instead announced their own 200 day plan because they knew better.

It soon became clear that Ryan’s Congress was not going to play ball. They were getting nothing done and taking time off. They were not interested in helping President Trump reach his 100 day goals, they appeared to want him to fail. They were going to show him who was in charge.

On March 8, 2017 Speaker Paul Ryan reminded Tucker Carlson that Congress had a 200 day plan not the President’s 100 day plan.

Speaker Ryan told Tucker Carlson:

Let me just give you a sense of what we’re planning in the first 200 days:

* Repealing and replacing Obamacare, the biggest entitlement reform in a generation.
* Overhauling the IRS Tax code.
* Rebuilding the military.
* Doing infrastructure.
* Repealing harmful regulations.
* Repealing Dodd-Frank and the Choice Act which would replace it.
…and funding the wall is part of this too.

Speaker Ryan’s Congress began this session on January 3rd, 2017 which means Speaker Ryan’s 200 days came to an end yesterday on Saturday, July 22nd.

Little to nothing has been accomplished in spite of Congress being controlled by the same party as the President.

President Donald Trump has accomplished more than could ever be expected since his election. The Stock Market is up 18% and in every major economic indicator the US is in better shape. Many of his goals have been met. (See list of accomplishments at 6 months here.)

What has Congress acheived?

* Obamacare is still in place and crushing Americans with huge insurance premiums and deductibles.
* The US tax code has not changed and Americans and American companies remain shackled with some of the highest taxes in the world. (The President proposed massive tax cuts that nearly all Americans are in favor of and yet nothing to date from Congress. They know better!)
* The US infrastructure is still broken. US Airports are worse than some third world countries.
* The President has removed many of the Obama era regulations but Dodd-Frank is still in place.

In addition Congressional Leaders stand back and watch the fake Russian Conspiracy story repeated hourly and say nothing. Rabid far left judges think they have the right to set the nation’s immigration policies and overturn Supreme Court rulings and Congress does not impeach. The list goes on and on. Overall Congress does little to nothing to support their President.

It is time for Speaker Ryan to step aside!. Congress should have replaced him on day one of this session due to his efforts to sabotage President Trump during the campaign. Instead here we are with nothing material accomplished by this Speaker’s Congress.

There is so much to do. President Trump wants to help Americans but this Congress does not want to be a part of any of it! The President is doing all he can for the American people! The Democrats are obstructionists and certifiably insane with Russian fever. The Republicans are worse because they own the House and the Senate and yet can’t get any significant bills passed.

Failed Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have blown their 200 days and accomplished nothing material. They need to be replaced by Republicans in Congress or they will be replaced by a Russian Fever Infested Democrat Congress instead.

Head of US National Press Club from Qatar’s State-Run Al-Jazeera Slanders and Smears Gateway Pundit on CSPAN

Yesterday the Head of the US National Press Club from Qatar State Sponsored Al-Jazeera Took a Swipe at the Gateway Pundit (GWP) on CSPAN

CSPAN carried a panel discussion being held by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, DC.

CSIS states on its website:

Established in Washington, D.C., over 50 years ago, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a bipartisan, nonprofit policy research organization dedicated to providing strategic insights and policy solutions to help decisionmakers chart a course toward a better world.

In late 2015, Thomas J. Pritzker was named chairman of the CSIS Board of Trustees. Mr. Pritzker succeeded former U.S. senator Sam Nunn (D-GA), who chaired the CSIS Board of Trustees from 1999 to 2015. CSIS is led by John J. Hamre, who has served as president and chief executive officer since 2000.”

It is clear that the CSIS is nothing more than another far left globalist initiative masquerading as a think tank of some sort based simply on the topic and panel they invited to discuss the global influence of the press on CSPAN. The panel of five consisted of two reporters from the Al-Jazeera network. Al-Jazeera is the Islamic government Qatar’s state sponsored, pro-Islamic, anti-Semitic and anti-American media outlet based in Qatar. Qatar is considered by many as promoters of terrorism around the world.

One of the reporters from Al Jazeera is the Head of the US National Press Club, Jeff Ballou. He stated during the discussion the following as reported at CSPAN:

BREITBART, GATEWAY PUNDIT. THESE ARE ORGANIZATIONS THAT DON’T PRACTICE THE CRAFT WITH FAIRNESS AND BALANCE. AND YET FOR POLITICAL REASONS THE WHITE HOUSE HAS ALLOWED THEM TO BE CREDENTIALED IN THE BRIEFING ROOM. THAT SHOULD SCARE YOU.

(See video clip here)

What is really scary is that the CSIS invited this buffoon on a panel to discuss fairness in the media, knowing he works for Al-Jazeera.

What is even more scary and shocking is that this individual was invited to be member of the National Press Club. (The firm he works for is from Qatar).

What is even more shocking is that this individual is the Head of the National Press Club.

So now Al-Jazeera is considered the unbiased adjudicateor of what is truth in the US media and is able to slander the GWP and Breitbart with impunity?

Note that the GWP attempted to obtain membership to the Senate Press gallery and was turned down. This press organization is also led by far left MSM reporters as well.

Please know that the GWP will continue to share the truth no matter who runs what National or Senate Press Club – period.

HERE IT IS=> Complete List of President Trump’s Major Accomplishments in His First Six Months #MAGA

 

President Trump has accomplished much in his first six months in office. Today at the end of this period, we provide a list of these many accomplishments.

Stock Market

In President Trump’s first six months since the election and since his inauguration the US Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.

* The DOW daily closing stock market average has risen 18% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – yesterday on July 19th the DOW closed at 21,641 for another all time stock market closing high).
* Since the election the DOW has set a new all time closing high one out of every four days the market is open!
* Since the Inauguration on January 20th the DOW is up 9%. (It was at 19,827 at January 20th.)
* The DOW took just 66 days to climb from 19,000 to above 21,000, the fastest 2,000 point run ever. The DOW closed above 19,000 for the first time on November 22nd and closed above 21,000 on March 1st.
* The DOW closed above 20,000 on January 25th and the March 1st rally matched the fastest-ever 1,000 point increase in the DOW at 24 days.
* On February 28th President Trump matched President Reagan’s 1987 record for most continuous closing high trading days when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!
* The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ have both set new all-time highs during this period.
* The US Stock Market gained $4 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected!
* The S&P 500 also broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.

US Debt

As of today, the US Debt has decreased under President Trump since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion. (President Obama increased the US debt in his first 6 months more than $974 Billion or nearly $1 Trillion.) The difference between Presidents Trump and Obama is more than $1 Trillion.

Jobs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added a projected 1,027,000 jobs in his first six months (January through June 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than 3,826,000 million jobs in his first six months.

Unemployment

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate since President Trump’s inauguration decreased from 4.8% to 4.4% (January through June 2017). The unemployment rate in January 2017 was 4.8% and by June it was down to 4.4%. Unemployment under President Obama on the other hand moved in the opposite direction. In his first six months as President the US unemployment rate increased each month from 7.8% in January 2009 to 9.5% by June of 2009.

Inflation

As noted earlier this week, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. This is in part due to President Trump’s energy policies that are helping average Americans with cheaper gas and electricity.

Housing Sales

Housing sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

According to the US Census Bureau, there were nearly twice as many US housing sales in the past couple of months as there were under President Obama in 2009 during the same time period. (The annualized housing sales rate for May 2017 is reported at 610,000 where in 2009 this amount was only 376,000.)

Decrease in Regulations

One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. In January President Trump signed his 2 for 1 executive order mandating that for every new regulation, two regulations needed to be revoked. Even far left Politico notes that significant new federal regulations since Trump’s inauguration have slowed to an almost total halt.

Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

Other Results

The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in President Trump’s first six months which was the best number since 1983 under President Reagan.

The Federal Reserve has increased interest rates three times since President Trump was elected into office in November. The Fed increased intereste rates only once in Obama’s 8 Years prior to the increase after President Trumps winning the election in November.

Illegal immigration is down almost 70% under President Trump.

NATO announced Allied spending is up $10 Billion because of President Trump.

After being nominated by President Trump, Constitutionalist Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as Supreme Court Justice in early April.

The President has signed around 150 executive orders, memoranda and proclamations as of July 19th, including:

* Dismantling Obama’s climate change initiatives.
* Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist atrocities.
* Enforcing regulatory reform.
* Protecting Law enforcement.
* Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two.
* Defeating ISIS.
* Rebuilding the military.
* Building a border wall.
* Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.
* Approving pipelines.
* Reducing regulations on manufacturers.
* Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.
* Exiting the US from the TPP.

President Trump and his beautiful family visited leaders around the world. In his first foreign trip as President he went to Saudi Arabia and gave one of the most historic speeches in US history. The President implored the Muslim leaders of 50 countries to get rid of terrorists in their countries and “drive them out“. No world leader had ever done this!

As a result, the President sided with the leaders of these countries including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan against terrorism, ISIS and Iran.

In addition to all this, the President has met with many foreign leaders from across the globe on numerous trips and he invited others to his place in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, including Xi from China, Abe from Japan, etc.

The President also pointed out numerous times that the MSM (Main Stream Media) reports only on a made up Russia conspiracy story and ignores these accomplishments. These actions are making the majority of Americans aware of the tremendous bias and falsehoods emanating from the media in the US and abroad. This too is another major Trump accomplishment.

And let’s not forget that the President unloaded on CNN with arguably the greatest tweet by any man ever in early July –

In Summary

President Trump is doing all he can for the American people and as a result the economy is on fire with the stock market reaching new all time highs once every four days! In nearly every economic category the US economy is improving under President Trump. In addition, President Trump has implemented numerous executive actions that he promised he would do when running for office. The US is in much better shape in only six months. Americans have hope again due to the real changes this President instituted from the economy to immigration.

There is still much to do but President Trump is showing that he is doing all he can to Make America Great Again!

 

President Trump Is Not the Typical Conservative – He Fights and He Wins!

Evan Sayet, author of the book The KinderGarden of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks posted an article at Townhall that is making the rounds on the Internet. His lecture to the Heritage Foundation on the topic of his book remains, some ten years later, by far the single most viewed lecture in the history of the Heritage Foundation.

Sayet’s post today is a marvelous explanation for why he supports President Trump. At the end of President Trump’s first six months today, it is well worth the read. Sayet explains to his friends what President Trump is doing that is so important and critical at this stage in US History. Here are some quotes from the article:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

and this:

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

and this:

Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

and this:

…instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

and he ends his post with this:

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights.

We couldn’t agree more. Trump is a fighter and a winner and he has turned the mainstream media upside down. What sort of credibility will the MSM have when President Trump is done with them? Trump fights!

After 6 Months of President Trump – “Lock Her Up” and “Drain the Swamp” – Need the Most Work

President Trump had many classic short one liners during his campaign. Now that his first six months are coming to a close, how did the President do and which slogans need the most work?

The slogan that the President has probably most satisfied his base by addressing in his first six months is “CNN Sucks”

The President has done what no other Republican politician has been able to do and that is point out how nasty, slanderous and liberal leaning the left wing US Main Stream Media (MSM) is. Conservatives for years have suffered under the dishonest MSM attacks and lies and President Trump has hit back harder than they ever have seen. They do not know how to handle the President’s responses.

President Trump has taken the MSM out of their game and Americans have noticed. A recent poll showed that Americans now believe the media is one of the most dishonest entities in the US. It’s about time. During these past six months, the President smashed CNN with the most historic tweet of all time.

That tweet will go down in history! It showed in a hilarious way how he feels about CNN’s relentless dishonest broadcasting of him and his administration and how he has smashed them because of it.

Other one liners were created during the President’s campaign. The “Build the Wall” slogan represented that many Americans wanted a strong border and an immigration policy that was sensible – something much different than President Obama’s open borders and let anyone in the country whether they can pay for themselves or not.

Since the inauguration plans have started for the wall and illegal immigration at the Mexican border is down 76%. There is still much to do with the wall but there has been major progress in this area.

The two slogans that appear to need the most attention from the President are “Drain the Swamp” –

and “Lock Her Up” –

It’s amazing that the most important and emotional policies that Americans wanted from this President when he was campaigning were captured in three or four word chants!

Also, after six months it is clear that this President must do more to “Drain the Swamp” and “Lock her Up”. Last night on Hannity a panel laid out the double standards that appear in our legal system. Hillary Clinton is given a pass by the MSM for receiving money for giving uranium to Russia and President Trump’s son meets with a Russian plant for 20 minutes and the liberal press is non stop about it.

President Trump has done a great job with the economy and a masterful job showing CNN’s true colors. If the President is working on bringing justice back to the US legal system it is now time to let Americans know. The President’s backers had two slogans in this regard so it must be important!

If President Trump’s First Term is Like His First 6 Months – He’ll Be the Greatest Economic President Ever!

To date President Trump is true to his campaign promises and now as President Trump’s first 6 months in office come to an end, here is a list of his accomplishments and his resulting impact on the economy.

President Trump started off as aggressive as any President ever in working for the American people as he promised. In President Trump’s first six months since the election and since his inauguration the US Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.

Stock Market

* The DOW daily closing stock market average has risen 18% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – on July 17th the DOW closed at 21,629 for the 2nd highest close of all time).
* Since the Inauguration on January 20th the DOW is up 9%. (It was at 19,827 at January 20th.)
* The DOW took just 66 days to climb from 19,000 to above 21,000, the fastest 2,000 point run ever. The DOW closed above 19,000 for the first time on November 22nd and closed above 21,000 on March 1st.
* The DOW closed above 20,000 on January 25th and the March 1st rally matched the fastest-ever 1,000 point increase in the DOW at 24 days.
* On February 28th President Trump matched President Reagan’s 1987 record for most continuous closing high trading days when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!
* The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ have both set new all-time highs during this period.
* The US Stock Market gained $4 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected!
* The S&P 500 also broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.

US Debt

As of today, President Trump decreased the US Debt since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion. (President Obama increased the US debt in his first 6 months more than $974 Billion or nearly $1 Trillion.)

Jobs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added a projected 1,027,000 jobs in his first six months (January through June 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than 3,826,000 million jobs in his first six months.

Unemployment

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump decreased the unemployment rate since his inauguration from 4.8% to 4.4% (January through June 2017). The unemployment rate in January 2017 was 4.8% and by June it was down to 4.4%. President Obama on the other hand again moved in the opposite direction. In his first six months as President the US unemployment rate increased each month from 7.8% in January 2009 to 9.5% by June of 2009.

Inflation

As noted yesterday, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. This is in part due to President Trump’s energy policies that are helping average Americans in their pocket books with cheaper gas and electricity.

Housing Sales

Housing sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

According to the US Census Bureau, there were nearly twice as many US housing sales in the past couple of months as there were under President Obama in 2009 during the same time period. (The annualized housing sales rate for May 2017 is reported at 610,000 where in 2009 this amount was only 376,000.)

Decrease in Regulations

One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. In January President Trump signed his 2 for 1 executive order mandating that for every new regulation, two regulations needed to be revoked. Even far left Politico notes that significant new federal regulations since Trump’s inauguration have slowed to an almost total halt.

Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

Other Results

The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in President Trump’s first six months which was the best number since 1983 under President Reagan.

The Federal Reserve has increased interest rates three times since President Trump was elected into office in November. The Fed increased intereste rates only once in Obama’s 8 Years prior to the increase in December.

Illegal immigration is down 64% since last year under President Trump.

The President also pointed out numerous times that the MSM (Main Stream Media) reports only on a made up Russia conspiracy story and ignores these accomplishments. These actions are making the majority of Americans aware of the tremendous bias and falsehoods emanating from the media in the US and abroad. This too is another major Trump accomplishment.

In Summary

If the economy continues at this pace, President Trump could set all kinds of records and will surely be known as the best economic President in US history.

 

Trump’s Energy Policies Result in Lower Prices at the Pump and Inflation Dropping to 1.6%

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%.

Joana Taborda at Trading Economics wrote:

Consumer prices in the United States increased 1.6 percent year-on-year in June of 2017, below 1.9 percent in May and compared to market expectations of 1.7 percent. It is the lowest inflation rate since October of 2016 due to a 0.4 percent fall in gasoline prices.”

President Trump’s executive actions to move forward with the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines may not only reduce the cost of gasoline in the States which impacts inflation, they also are instrumental in ensuring the US’s energy independence and will create many good paying jobs.
Gaurav Sharma, at Forbes wrote in January about President Trump’s energy policies:

By any stretch of anyone’s imagination, it is fair to say the lead up to, as well as the first few days of the Donald Trump administration have been nothing short of spectacular for U.S. Oil and Gas Inc. Barely hours after Trump had taken office as the 45th President of the USA, an overhauled White House website proudly declared its new found pro energy industry credentials. Guidance on climate change – a key feature of the Obama administration’s policy framework – was swiftly erased from the site.

Then three days into his presidency, Trump gave his explicit backing to two controversial pipeline projects – Keystone XL and Dakota Access – provided American steel is used in their construction giving his “America First Energy Plan” a novel dimension. How could you possibly trump the wider appeal of projects boosting the country’s energy industry, providing jobs and utilizing domestic steel to boot.

Another article by Mark Mills at Forbes notes:
Those pipelines entail billions of dollars, but it’s all private capital and not taxpayer funds appropriated by Congress. And, unlike many “trophy” government projects, the pipelines will be profitable from the get-go.”
