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?

Trump controls the weather…

leave a comment »

…or he must,  since Iran is blaming him for the flooding occurring there.  Iran appears to have spent the $170 billion His Oneness slipped to them on munitions and supporting terrorism.  Now it still has a broken economy,  and Trump’s sanctions Trump do make it harder to get aid money.  The  real problem  is that its neighbors want Iran to fail,  preferring to deal with a democratic Israel instead of the collection of tyrants they have as alternatives.

And a job…

leave a comment »

Remember the grandmother Trump got released from prison?   Now he has  gotten Catherine Toney a job,   about which you will read absolutely nothing in the press.   My bet is that she will do quite well.

It ain’t so…

leave a comment »

A favorite talking point of the Left is how much Trump is hated abroad and how no one respects him and would rather be dead than work with him.  The problem is that an ancient venue such as the  Viareggio Carnival,  which attracts more than 600,000 spectators,  is led this year by a multi-story  papier-mache  Trump.  And Italy isn’t the only place that  likes Trump.

China caving on trade….

leave a comment »

If Trump is so incompetent,  why has he gotten China to agree to truly meaningful trade reforms in less than two years when America has sought such reform for more than a decade?  Oh,  he must be more lucky than his predecessor who was supposed to be able to persuade anyone of anything.

It might have something  to do with  Trump’s threat to increase a 10%  tariff on $200 billion of Chinese exports to a 25% tariff on March 1.  China has long depended on selling to the world, especially America,  and stealing intellectual property from us .  I haven’t bought anything made in China for years,  but if the entire U.S. market were closed to it,  Americans would be somewhat inconvenienced,  but China would be staring at bankruptcy.

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.

CODEL Pelosi canceled…

leave a comment »

Trump not on,y canceled a CODEL trip,  he had Nancy Pelosi caught in a flat-out lie, but more importantly,  he prevented her from doing as she did to Bush in 2007 and trying to present an alternate foreign policy to a non-ally (Syria’s Assad, if you don’t remember).   And the move also provided  this picture  of luggage…

Nothing says FAILURE like having your luggage returned and put in the empty halls of Congress,  does it?   Don Surber explains  the owning perfectly.
