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

President Trump is doing all he can for the American people and as a result the economic results are incredible. In nearly every category the economy is improving under President Trump. 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.”
More winning, winning, winning!

Main Stream Media is at it Again – Washington Post/ABC Concoct Bogus Poll to Smear President Trump

The Main Stream Media (MSM) is at it again – Washington Post/ABC concoct bogus poll to smear President Trump!

We warned in late October 2016 before the 2016 election that the polls from the MSM were bogus. We were right.

Today two major MSM players – the ultra far left Washington Post and ABC – got together to smear President Trump.

Ann Coulter warned in her book Slander in 2003 that the far left main stream media always uses polls to push their agenda. Polls can be skewed by selecting an unreasonable sample size, by asking lead up questions or by selecting more of a sample population of one side of an issue to achieve a desired result.

The MSM skews polls to discourage potential voters from voting or to discredit and smear conservative politicians and has done it for years.

A good example of the media trying to shape a vote was in 1980. In a Gallup poll released on October 26th in 1980, two weeks before the election, Jimmy Carter was leading Ronald Reagan 47 – 39. Two weeks later Reagan won in such a landslide that Carter conceded before California was closed.

Another example of mainstream liberal media bias was in 1988. A Gallup Poll from July 26 showed Michael S. Dukakis leading George H. W. Bush by 17 points. Of course Bush went on to thump Dukakis in the general election.

Before the 2016 election we pointed out that a number of polls showed Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by various margins. One poll reported by NBC/WSJ a few weeks before the election showed Hillary ahead by 11. However, that NBC/WSJ poll was created by a Hillary Super PAC.

We also noted that the Monmouth University poll was run by a Hillary Huckster who was caught manipulating a poll and then lied about it.

We also noted that Realclearpolitics.com took an average of distorted polls to come up with their analysis of the 2016 race. Their efforts were a great example of the phrase – ‘garbage in – garbage out’.

Now today a WaPo/ABC poll comes out slamming the President.

A cursory review of this poll shows that it is of course totally slanted. The percentage of voters polled included 35% Democrat, 35% Independent and another 7% that are neither Democrat or Independent. Only 23% of the poll participants identified themselves as Republican.

The poll included less than 25% Republicans. What a crock.

When we looked at the polls being spread by the MSM on October 18th shortly before the 2016 election we stated they were biased. We also stated: Let’s face it NOBODY likes Hillary and NOBODY trusts Hillary.

We also stated:

Maybe the current polls are not just inaccurate – maybe they are dead wrong.

We were right then and we are right again.

Difference Between Presidents Trump and Obama? Obama Incurred $1 Trillion More Debt at this Time in His Presidency

What’s the difference between Presidents Trump and Obama? Approximately $1 Trillion! President Obama increased the US debt in his first 6 months by $1 Trillion more than President Trump!

As of today, President Trump has decreased the US Debt since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion.

President Obama on the other hand increased the US debt in his term for the same time period by $899 Billion.

Yes, that’s a difference of $1 Trillion!

However, it should be noted that the amount of US debt reported under President Trump is the same amount that has been reported for the last 4 months in a row. The amount of US debt under President Trump decreased by as much as $101 billion between January 20th (the date of President Trump’s inauguration) and March 15th. However, for the 4 months between March 15th and July 15th the amount of US debt did not materially change. During this entire 4 month period the debt stayed the same.

Under President Obama, the amount of US debt stayed the same for long periods at a time when the debt reached levels that were near the US debt limit. The Obama Administration was suspected of ‘cooking the books’ to keep the government running rather than reporting the true amount of the US debt which would have resulted in a constitutional crisis and possible government shutdown.

Congress’s 200 Days Approaching Fast with Little to Nothing Done to Help Working Americans!

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 December 2016 Speaker Paul Ryan spoke about how he would help the new president push through his agenda.

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.

So on March 8, 2017 Speaker Paul Ryan told Tucker Carlson Congress had a 200 day plan to guarantee the president’s agenda would be passed.

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 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.

But little to nothing has happened. This is in spite of Congress being controlled by the same party as the President.

Last night Tucker Carlson stated the obvious:

Speaker Ryan’s Congress began its first session on January 3rd, 2017 which means Speaker Ryan’s 200 days come to an end next Saturday, July 22nd.

What has Congress accomplished? None of the above other than some regulations being lifted.

Obamacare is still in place and crushing Americans with huge insurance premiums and deductibles. The US tax code has not changed leaving US companies and individuals with one of the world’s highest tax burdens. The President proposed massive tax cuts that nearly all Americans are in favor of and yet nothing to date from Congress. The US infrastructure is still broken. US Airports are worse than some third world countries. 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.

There is so much to do. President Trump wants to do help Americans but this Congress just plain does not want to be a part of any of it! These people in Congress are a disgrace!

Failed Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have blown an entire half year and accomplished nothing. When will they be replaced?

President Trump Records His 23rd New Stock Market High – 23 More Than Obama in His Entire First Term

 

Yesterday the US Stock Market set another all time high!

The Dow Jones Industrial Average recorded its 23rd all time high of 2017 yesterday closing at 21,532. There have been a total of 120 days where the markets have closed since President Trump’s inauguration on January 20th. The ‘DOW’ has closed at all time highs 23 of those days for nearly 20% or one-fifth of the days the market has been open. The market is up 9% since the inauguration.

Since the election on November 8th the DOW has closed at record highs an amazing 40 times! Nearly one-fourth or 24% of the 168 days the markets have closed have been record highs since the November 8th election. The market is up 17% since the election!

Americans are benefitting greatly in their 401k’s from the recent change in Administrations.

When compared to President Obama, the current President is smashing it.

In Obama’s entire first term, the US stock market (DOW) never reached a new closing high. In years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 the DOW never reached a new high once!

 

It’s clear on many levels and in nearly every possible economic measurement that America prefers President Trump over the prior President.

 

Obama’s “Ethics” Director Resigns to Go to Work for George Soros Funded Organization

 

No it’s not an oxymoron but President ‘Obama’s Ethics’ Director has resigned.

Walter Shaub, was appointed by Obama in 2013 and he resigned last Thursday amid growing unethical acts on his behalf. The main stream media (MSM) however reports that Shaub resigned due to “months of clashes with the White House”. The MSM hides the fact the Shaub was an Obama holdover when reporting about Shaub’s resignation which is unethical reporting by the MSM at best.

Shaub has big plans according to MSM and government funded NPR:

Shaub, an attorney, has accepted a job with the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan organization of election-law experts.

What NPR and the rest of the MSM won’t tell you is that the Campaign Legal Center is nothing but another far left organization funded by George Soros. The Center boasts many entities for its funding including the Open Society Foundations. Open Society Foudations boasts that it was established by far left “investor and philanthropist George Soros”. The Gateway Pundit has reported many times about how far left Soros, a Nazi sympathizer, is behind many sordid activities like Black Lives Matter and at one time was connected to every major riot/protest since the election.

The fact that Obama’s Ethic’s Director, Walter Shaub, is now working for Soros says all you need to know about Shaub’s character and biased ethics activities under former President Obama.

Shaub’s actions also show how unethical he is.

In November, shortly after President Trump won the election the Office of Government Ethics began tweeting at President-elect Trump in a very unethical manner. It was soon reported that the unethical tweets were coming from none other than the OGE Director Shaub. Shaub’s tweets berated the President-to-be and challenged him to divest of his assets, which the President did do.

Of course President Trump’s actions were never good enough for the Obama-Soros crony. No matter what the President did, Shaub was disrespectful and hateful in his communications about the President.

The unfortunate thing is that there is so much damage to the democracy that Obama was involved in while President that was left uninvestigated and unchallenged by Shaub. Obamacare, Benghazi, the Iran Nuclear deal, Fast and Furious, and lies about all these activities were apparently never a problem for Shaub.

President Trump and America is in a much better place with Walter Shaub no longer designating what is ethical while he acts in the most unethical manner imaginable. Good riddance.

Hillary Created ’17 Intelligence Agencies’ Lie – WikiLeaks: “Most Immediately Disprovable Wopper Ever Intentionally Made During a Debate”

 

In President-to-be Donald Trump’s first presser after accepting the Republican nomination for President in July 2016, President Donald Trump showed his excitement after the historical week where he and his stellar family was on display for all of America to see. President-to-be Trump let into Ted Cruz for his disrespectful act the day before in not supporting the President-to-be and then he let Hillary Clinton and her campaign have it. In doing so he shared to the media’s shock:

He [Russian President Putin] doesn’t respect our President [Obama]. And if it was Russia, which it’s probably not, nobody knows who it is. But if it is Russia, it’s really bad for a different reason because it shows how little respect they have for our country when they would hack into a major party, and get everything.

But it would be interesting to see, I will tell you this, Russia if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing!

The future President was referring to the 30,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted and did not provide to special prosecutors who asked for her emails. Hillary had stored emails on a private server disregarding government regulations that require government employees to house government related emails on government email systems.

The Clinton team knew they had a problem with Hillary’s emails which were kept outside of government oversight. A short time later Hillary’s Campaign Manager John Podesta’s emails were released by WikiLeaks and they included an email from Obama’s Cheryl Mills to Podesta which stated:

We need to clean this up…emails…they do not say state .gov”

Another of Podesta’s emails showed that the Clinton team discussed the illegal act of deleting Hillary’s emails rather than provide to government investigators.

The Democrats knew they had an issue with Hillary’s emails and so they manufactured a story to change the subject. During a Presidential debate with Hillary Clinton, Hillary stated that the Russians hacked Americans and gave that information to WikiLeaks:

This [Russians hacking and giving emails to WikiLeaks] has come from the highest levels of the Russian government, clearly from Putin himself, in an effort as 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed to influence our election.”

Unfortunate for Hillary, her comments were immediately refuted by WikiLeaks and have been to this date:

The lie that Hillary Clinton started that 17 government intelligence agencies confirmed Russia stole DNC emails and provided them to WikiLeaks is finally confirmed a lie.

Who else but Hillary could have started such a tall tale.

Trump Administration Faces A Leak A Day – Criminal Leaks Negatively Impact National Security

Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, examined media leaks between January 20, 2017, and May 25, 2017 — the first 126 days of President Trump being in office. His examination consisted entirely of publicly available news articles; no classified information was accessed or reviewed. The results of his review showed the significance of the leaks:

• The Trump administration faced 125 leaked stories—one leak a day— containing information that is potentially damaging to national security under the standards laid out in a 2009 Executive Order signed by President Barack Obama.
• Leaks with the capacity to damage national security flowed about seven times faster under President Trump than during President Obama’s and President George W. Bush’s first 126 days.
• The majority of leaks during the Trump administration, 78, concerned the Russia probes, with many revealing closely-held information such as intelligence community intercepts, FBI interviews and intelligence, grand jury subpoenas, and even the workings of a secret surveillance court.
• Other leaks disclosed potentially sensitive intelligence on U.S. adversaries or possible military plans against them. One leak, about the investigation of a terrorist attack, caused a diplomatic incident between the United States and a close ally.
• Leaked stories appeared in 18 news outlets, sourced to virtually every possible ermutation of anonymous current and former U.S. officials, some clearly from the intelligence community. One story cited more than two dozen anonymous sources.
• Almost all of the stories leaked during President Trump’s first 126 days were about the President or his administration. In contrast, only half of the stories leaked during the comparable period of the Obama administration were about President Obama or his administration; the other half concerned President Bush
and his anti-terrorism tactics.

Senator Johnson shows the number of leaks graphically:

A list of the 125 leaks is provided in an appendix in the back of the report. Many of the leaks were also reported by the Gateway Pundit in prior posts.

A couple observations not in Senator Johnson’s report are that many of the leaks are related to James Comey in one way or another and the former FBI Director has admitted leaking information to the press. Another observation is that a significant amount of the so called leaks have been proven false at later dates. This makes you wonder if they are just being made up by someone like John Podesta.

Regardless of who is creating them, leaking them or reporting them, the criminal leaks are damaging to the US Intelligence community and are clear attacks against President Trump.
