Trump economy…

leave a comment »

…makes fools of  the experts —  again.   Remember that the experts forecast 2.5%  in between sighing heavily and prophesying doom and gloom and financial disaster.

It may help to remember that most of them nodded sagely when Pres.  Obama said the barely discernible growth brought about by his lousy economic policies were the new normal and the best we could expect, and gee,  wasn’t his economy just grand?

Does this all mean the recession has  been cancelled?

Overall crime…

leave a comment »

…fell sharply from 1990 to 2008, with rates less than half that of 1990. Similar trends held for violent crime and murders. All three rates began to plateau between 2008 and 2010,  and then they reversed.  What I’m telling you is that His Oneness  oversaw all three  crime rates rise faster than any other period in modern history.

The murder rate skyrocketed in Baltimore,  Chicago and D.C.  after Obama endorsed Black Lives Matters.   The cities the group was most active in had such stupendous rates that the national average increased even while the rates fell in rural area. in rural America continued to fall on decadal scales.

Sex trafficking arrests…

leave a comment »

The chart included in  this link  will show you that Democrats are totally disinterested in keeping you safe or discouraging human trafficking.  Refusing to secure the border means makes it easier for monsters to prostitute young boys and girls and women.   Democrats don’t want you to know that Pres. Trump signed into law the Frederick Douglass Act  authorizing $430 million to combat human trafficking.  They and their MSM conspiratorial cronies will never let you know that during his eight years in office,  Obama’s administration made only 42 more arrests for human trafficking than Trump’s administration has made in his first 18 months.

If you are a trafficker,  you adored His Oneness and hate Trump for his effectiveness.  Trump talks a lot,  but he also does a lot.   A pity we have a Congress where the elite don’t listen and won’t act for our benefit and the country’s good,  and too many Republicans hide behind their desks and wet their pants at the first sign of something requiring balls.  Let’s change that,  shall we?

Obama the loser…

leave a comment »

His Oneness came out for  a number  of candidates,  but three candidates in particular.  All three of them have failed,  though Stacey Adams is likely to challenge the results.   What does  that make  him?   Of course,  his celebrity pals  didn’t fare  well,  either.

Comparing presidents…

with 3 comments

I had an interesting conversation with a millennial black man who works for me occasionally.  He said that Trump’s tax cut has put $200 more in each of his twice-monthly paychecks.  If he were still gambling that $400 would have gone to a casino.  He has been pint out to his buddies what that tax cut means to him and asking why anyone should vote for Democrats,  who are promising to take that $400 away from him and raise his taxes even more.

He lacks high-end job skills and education and had little opportunity growing up in an economically depressed neighborhood.  He also is not an intellectual giant.  But with some encouragement and tips and timely reminders,  he had the strength to quit gambling entirely.  I know plenty of people with much larger bank accounts and a boatload of expensive professional help who can’t shake the addition.

Then I stumbled across  this comparison  of Obama and Trump  on the economy in the first 600 days of their respective presidencies.   Hark!   Is that the sound of heads exploding?

You haven’t…

leave a comment »

…heard it from MSM or the cable talking heads,  but the economy is actually  humming along  pretty well.   The government is still spending far too much money (write your Congress critters and demand restraint!),  but despite that the annual growth is considerably better than under the Obama Administration.

Most media will latch onto an  erroneous report  that wages are falling.  There is little likelihood that they are.   Remember Mark Twain’s famous warning:  There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

A strategy that works…

leave a comment »

During the Obama Administration,  the Iranians harass our ships and even captured a pair of riverine boats and 10 sailors.   Last year there was a 60% drop in such incidents,  and this year there have been none thus far.  That’s  the result  of having a president who won’t tolerate such behavior and is prepared to strike back.
