The Remarkable Trump Economy Is Making Life Better For ALL Americans

On the strength of the economy alone, if Donald Trump were a Democrat, the Establishment Media would be nominating him for sainthood by now. 

It has been a remarkable transformation from the eight long and tepid years of Barack Obama that saw the rich get much richer and the poor and Middle Class squeezed into near oblivion.

Obama is gone, Trump is in, and all Americans, regardless of race and/or socioeconomic background, are now doing much-much better. 

Via the Washington Times:

The actual New York Times, which has published scathing criticisms of President Trump, was admitting in a June 1 article that the U.S. economy is strong beyond description right now.

Words such as “splendid” and “excellent” certainly fit, according to reporter Neil Irwin: “Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low.

There’s more. Average hourly earnings are up 2.7 percent over the last year, while unemployment has dropped. It’s even lower for black Americans — 5.9 percent, “the lowest on record,” which we would count as ‘great’,” Mr. Irwin wrote.

The unemployment rate is also near historic lows for Hispanics (4.9 percent) and for women (3.6 percent).

——————–

While the media continues to spew its hateful anti-Trump 24/7 diatribes that claim the president is “racist” or “anti-woman” the Trump economy continues to improve the lives of those very same people.

The media is the lie.

The Trump economy is the truth.

Consider the following:

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average unemployment rate for black Americans during the eight Obama years was nearly 13%.

During the eighteen months of the Trump presidency that average unemployment rate has fallen to just over 6%.

Donald Trump has improved the employment outlook for black Americans by more than 100% vs the Obama years – and that number continues to improve!

Similar gains are being made for Hispanics, women, young, and old – EVERYONE is benefitting from the Trump economy.

America is once again able to offer the American Dream to more people than it ever has before and yet the Establishment Media and D.C. Machine would have you believe otherwise. They claim Donald Trump is racist for wanting safe and secure borders. That he’s reckless for demanding other nations stop taking advantage of disastrous trade agreements. That he’s a warmonger for wanting a strong military even as he navigates potentially world-changing peace agreements.

The enemies of President Trump are drowning in their own repeated lies while Trump continues to help move the nation forward to a better, safer, and more prosperous place.


 

Success Of Trump Economy Destroying Democrat Hopes Of 2018 Midterm Revival

Donald Trump is more popular at this point in his first term than Barack Obama was. Despite 24/7 anti-Trump media attacks and a D.C. Establishment that continues to try and throw him under the bus, President Trump moves forward accumulating victories one after the other. His enemies hoped to make the 2018 Midterms his Waterloo. Just a few months earlier it appeared they might succeed. Today that success is far less certain as millions of Americans enjoy the benefits of an ever-expanding Trump economy.

The Mojo of Trumponomics

One of the key principles of Trumponomics is that faster economic growth can help solve a multitude of other social and economic problems, from poverty to inner-city decline to lowering the national debt.

…Now for the even-better news. We are already starting to see a fiscal dividend from President Trump’s tax, energy and pro-business policies. The Congressional Budget Office reports that tax revenues in April — by far the biggest month of the year for tax collections because of the April 15 filing deadline — totaled $515 billion, which was a robust 13 percent rise in receipts over last year.

MoneyWeek reports that the $218 billion monthly surplus (revenues over expenditures) this April was the largest ever, with the previous record being $180 billion in 2001. (April is always the one surplus month.)
Here’s the simple lesson: More growth, more tax revenue.

But there’s another lesson, and it is about how wrong the bean counters in Congress were who said this tax bill would “cost” the Treasury $1.5 trillion to $2 trillion in lost revenues over the next decade. If the higher growth rate that Trump has already accomplished remains in place, then the impact will be well over $3 trillion of more revenue and thus lower debt levels over the decade. Putting people to work is the best way to balance the budget. Period.

…No one thought that Trump could ramp up the growth rate to 3 percent or that his policies would boost federal revenues. But he is doing just that — which is why all that the Democrats and the media want to talk about these days is Russia and Stormy Daniels.


 

Trump Just Gave America Best Budget Month In U.S. History (Trump Surplus Edition)

Wow and double wow. It’s the Trump economic boom the Establishment Media/Globalists don’t want discussed but it’s getting harder and harder for them to hide the truth of just how well Donald Trump is doing as President.  In April the U.S. government enjoyed a budget surplus of nearly $300 BILLION dollars.

Via The Washington Times:

The federal government took in a record tax haul in April en route to its biggest-ever monthly budget surplus, the Congressional Budget Office said, as a surging economy left Americans with more money in their paychecks — and this more to pay to Uncle Sam.

All told the government collected $515 billion and spent $297 billion, for a total monthly surplus of $218 billion. That swamped the previous monthly record of $190 billion, set in 2001.

CBO analysts were surprised by the surplus, which was some $40 billion more than they’d guessed at less than a month ago.

Analysts said they’ll have a better idea of what’s behind the surge as more information rolls in, but for now, said it looks like individual taxpayers are paying more because they have higher incomes.

——————-

It’s common-sense economics that sadly has become so uncommon in recent decades. Allow people to keep more of their own money which in turn stimulates economic growth, creating more taxpayers which ultimately provides more real revenue to the government. The truth is that for those who truly want sustainable bigger government, a lower taxes/lower regulations free market economy is the way to do it.


 

WOW! Cities Offering Cash To Get Workers To Fill Vacant Jobs

You sure didn’t hear these kinds of stories during the Obama era. After less than two years on the job, President Trump has created an economy where cities are actually offering up to $5000 PER WORKER to incentivize people to move there to fill job vacancies. 

Hello? Mainstream Media? Where are all the feel-good stories about this remarkable economic transformation that is benefiting so many Americans?

Via WSJ:

HAMILTON, Ohio—Jobs at the paper mills and safe manufacturers on this stretch of the Great Miami River mostly dried up by the early 2000s, leaving behind closed factories and an abandoned downtown.
Today, a spruced-up waterfront, loft apartments and help-wanted signs give the appearance of economic renewal. All that’s missing are workers—and that has prompted a novel experiment.
Relocate to Hamilton and the city promises $5,000 to help pay student loans. Pack up for Grant County, Ind., and claim $5,000 toward buying a home. Settle in North Platte, Neb., and the chamber of commerce will hold a ceremony in your honor to present an even bigger check.

In this new phase of the U.S. economy, one marked by a shortage of workers rather than jobs, civic leaders in Hamilton and elsewhere are asking themselves: Why not pay people to move here?
The idea has spread where a strong economy, an aging population and an exodus of younger workers have triggered severe labor shortages—often places with very low unemployment rates and higher-than-average wage growth. That’s why small towns across America, instead of offering incentives to employers, such as Amazon.com Inc., are giving it to workers—one by one.
Mike Allgrunn, an economist at the University of South Dakota, calls the financial incentives “a modern-day Homestead Act,” referring to the 1862 law offering public land to settlers willing to move West. A similar deal now stands in Marne, Iowa, where free parcels are available to people who move there.


 

STUDY: Millennial Voters Turned Off By Democrat Party As Midterm Elections Loom

Could the oft-repeated “Blue Wave” Democrats have been promising in 2018 actually be a light drizzle? Historically the opposition party does well during the Midterms regardless of whether the president at the time is Reagan, Bush, Clinton, or Obama. Something is amiss for Democrats this year though. Millennial voters appear not to like them all that much.

Via Reuters:

Enthusiasm for the Democratic Party is waning among millennials as its candidates head into the crucial midterm congressional elections, according to the Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll.

The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.

…Terry Hood, 34, an African-American who works at a Dollar General store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and took this year’s poll, said he voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

But he will consider a Republican for Congress because he believes the party is making it easier to find jobs and he applauds the recent Republican-led tax cut.

“It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they’re helping with even the small things,” Hood said in a phone interview. “They’re taking less taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that.”

…Two years ago, young white people favored Democrats over Republicans for Congress by a margin of 47 to 33 percent; that gap vanished by this year, with 39 percent supporting each party.

The shift was especially dramatic among young white men, who two years ago favored Democrats but now say they favor Republicans over Democrats by a margin of 46 to 37 percent, the Reuters/Ipsos poll showed.

———————

The media won’t admit it and many of those polled won’t want to admit it either due to ongoing pressure from the Establishment to hate all things Trump but the reason Democrats are losing ground among Millennials is no doubt directly related to the pro-jobs policies of the current president. These jobs are especially available to millennial-aged Americans regardless of color and/or socio-economic background.

It is perhaps the most remarkable economic turnaround since Reagan took over for Carter in 1981 – and that’s good news for all Americans. Perhaps more and more Millennials are figuring out that if they want to keep their new job they best vote Republican in 2018 to help ensure Donald Trump continues his pattern of incredible success for the nation.


 

U.S. Income Makes Highest Jump In Five Years

More good news coming out of the Trump economic boom as U.S. income makes its highest jump in five years. That’s real-world dollars in the pockets of workers and families which economists believe will be yet another engine for yet more economic growth in the coming months. As of now, no mention of this positive news coming from CNN or MSNBC.

EXCERPTBLOOMBERG

Americans’ wallets fattened in January on recent tax cuts, indicating increased spending power may boost the economy this quarter.

Real disposable income, or earnings adjusted for taxes and inflation, advanced 0.6 percent from the prior month, the biggest gain since April 2015, according to a Commerce Department report Thursday.


 

Economists Agree – Trump Responsible For Great Economy, NOT Obama

Democrats and their media cohorts have been ramping up their collective whining about the Trump economy of late, demanding Barack Obama be given credit for America’s present good times. Not so fast. A panel of economists say different. This is Trump’s economy, not Barack Obama’s, and it is the current POTUS who deserves the credit. 

Via The Hill:

Who deserves credit for the booming economy? This is not a petty argument. How voters answer the question could well determine whether Democrats retake the House of Representatives come November.

Trump and Obama (and their admirers) are slugging it out, both claiming that it is their policies that have led to the ongoing economic expansion, steady job growth and higher stock prices.
Happily for President Trump, the pros agree with him. A recent survey of economists suggest it is President Trump, and not Obama, who should be taking a bow.

…More than two million workers have now received bonuses and or raises, with their bosses telling them the benefits are flowing from the GOP tax bill. That number will continue to grow as other companies are pressured into sharing the proceeds from lower taxes. This is a powerful and persuasive movement that is gaining momentum every day, which is probably why Democrats are so foolishly belittling the payouts.

A vast majority of Americans feel more optimistic about their prospects than they have in a decade. Will they really want to rock the boat come November and throw out the party at the helm? We shall see.

Donald Trump Has Already Helped Add 6 TRILLION Dollars To The American Economy!!!!

In just one year the U.S. economy, long stagnant during eight years of the Big Government Obama era, is now charging hard, breaking records, and putting money into the pockets of the American people. Is it any wonder the Establishment Media is so desperate to grant a hack political book 24/7 coverage to try and distract from the remarkable accomplishments taking place all around us?

READ. SHARE. EDUCATE.

How POTUS Trump Stared Down Establishment Republicans On Tax Bill – And Won

The more Donald Trump learns the often bizarre and petty machinations of D.C. politics the more dangerous he becomes to the status quo. You see, Trump is a quick study. His learning curve has been abrupt, and sometimes brutal – but it now appears that soon he will be signing a major tax cut bill into law.

It wasn’t an easy path to get to this point and the primary obstacle wasn’t Democrats or the continually biased and idiotic Mainstream Media. No, it was the GOP leadership who stood in the way. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan were none too eager to give President Trump a major legislative victory. Mr. Trump knew that – and then he prepared to step right over them and leave them behind. Soon, McConnell and Ryan were begging to be part of the tax reform effort.

It’s the economy, stupid. The Trump economic boom persisted and Republicans were increasingly desperate to look as if they had played a part in its ongoing success. (They hadn’t. Most of the economic boom has been directly linked to Trump’s use of Executive Orders to slash regulations, and his success in securing hundreds of billions in new trade agreements overseas.)

By late summer, McConnell knew Trump was boxing him in. More and more voters were becoming aware that it was Trump and Trump alone who was helping to revitalize the economy after eight long tepid years of an Obama presidency. The 2018 Midterms loomed. Trump had already proven himself willing to take on Republicans directly. This president’s loyalty is not to the party but to the American people. He promised them more jobs and lower taxes and the millions of Trump supporters out there trusted Mr. Trump was doing his best to keep those promises. Ire against the Republican establishment had turned to disgust – the kind of disgust that could lead to some very big names being voted out in the next election.

Mitch McConnell wants very much to retire from the Senate as Majority Leader. A poor showing in 2018 could end that hope. Paul Ryan still has aspirations for a White House run. A 2018 Midterm debacle could derail those plans as well.

Trump held the cards for 2018. With a few tweets, he could either fire up the base, or let them know this is one election they should stay home. Let the Democrats take the Senate back. Would it matter? Was there any real difference between Senate Republicans and Democrats? This potential scenario drifted out from the Trump White House to Congress multiple times throughout October and November.

The economy has been booming and Republicans wanted to take part of the credit. Trump was happy to let them do so – but they needed to send him a tax cut bill quick in order for that to happen. McConnell and Ryan capitulated. They didn’t want to. They still despise Trump and his outsider presence in their once-protected and exclusive D.C. bubble. Trump made it so they had very little choice. He bent back their puny political arms and applied just enough pressure to let them know he could snap them off at the elbow if he chose.

A flurry of legislative activity ensued.

A tax cut bill is now on its way.

The Art of the Deal just trumped business as usual in Washington D.C.

MAGA! DOW Jumps +5000 Points In One Year For The First Time EVER

Make no mistake, if Donald Trump were a far left globalist Democrat, the Mainstream Media coverage would be at this very moment portraying him as the most remarkable American president of the modern era. The fact the media has taken the opposite approach doesn’t seem to bother POTUS too much. Instead he has a remarkably unleashed U.S. economy to speak for him. For the first time in the history of the United States, the DOW has enjoyed a year-over-year increase of 5000 points. That correlates into hundreds of BILLIONS going back into the retirement accounts of everyday Americans all across the country and hundreds of thousands of new high-paying jobs being created right here and right now. (And of course if Trump were a far left globalist Democrat the economy wouldn’t be doing nearly so well as it is now!)

Mr. Trump started his presidency slashing the piles of federal regulations that had been accumulated at a break-neck pace during the Obama years. Businesses responded in kind by expanding, creating more jobs, and as those with even just a basic understanding of economics understand, actually paying more in taxes due to the resulting economic expansion.

The reduction in regulation was joined by POTUS Trump’s highly successful overseas tours that saw him bring back nearly a TRILLION dollars in new trade agreements. The Establishment Media did all it could to portray these trips as failures. NOT TRUE. Mr. Trump used the might of the American market to muscle his way into making some significant America-First trade deals that are already paying positive dividends here at home. Again, more jobs, more tax revenue, a stronger economy.

Now we are on the verge of a tax cut/reform deal that includes eliminating federal penalties on people who don’t want to sign up for the failed Obamacare mandate. While not a perfect tax plan, its a big step in the right direction. Some tax experts estimate the positive impact on small business and innovation will be especially positive. The net gain will again be more jobs, more money into the pockets of the Middle Class which in turn makes for a stronger and more prosperous America.

The far left elite continue to satisfy themselves with insipid (and unfunny) jokes at Mr. Trump’s expense. They hear their own laughter echo back at them on the right and left coasts and think the whole country is joining in on that laughter. It isn’t.  Donald Trump has already amassed a number of considerable successes as President of the United States even as the liberal elites in New York and Hollywood continue to be exposed as inhuman degenerates. The real joke is on them.

MAGA.

Trump Economy Shrugs Off Hurricanes – Posts Strong 3% GDP Growth

Multiple hurricanes have a way of temporarily stagnating economic growth. Certainly the Democrats and Establishment Media were counting on that as they salivated with dire predictions and repeating how “bad” things were in places like Puerto Rico.

Well, guess what? Things aren’t so bad after all as what more and more are now calling the “Trump Economy” has apparently shrugged off the hurricane trauma and posted remarkably strong 3% GDP growth.

Via Yahoo News:

The US economy continued to expand at a robust three percent clip in the third quarter despite back-to-back hurricanes, official data showed Friday, hitting President Donald Trump’s growth target for the second time since he took office.

The brisk growth — which follows a 3.1 percent expansion on an annual basis in the second quarter — could also strengthen the hand of monetary policymakers at the Federal Reserve who favor raising interest rates despite flagging inflation.

…”Overall, this is a very solid performance, given the disruption caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma,” Ian Shepherdson, founder of the consultancy Pantheon Macroeconomics, said in a research note.

As a point of contrast, in the eight years of the Obama presidency the country never enjoyed 3% or better annual GDP growth.

That was eight long years of massive deficit spending, lower Middle Class incomes, higher taxes, tens of millions more on food stamps, etc. It was a long, slow slog of economic misery.

It appears with POTUS Trump America’s economic engine is firing up again even despite a do-nothing Congress that has been painfully slow to enact the President’s America-First agenda.

Trump Economy BOOMS Despite Political & Media Establishment Fighting Against Him

For Middle Class America, the chart above is a beautiful thing to behold. It represents more retirement account earnings, more job opportunities, more home values, more freedom to purchase goods and services, and more choice.

While the Establishment Media and politicians have been wasting time with fabricated Russian conspiracies and personal taunts against POTUS Trump and his administration, just the thought of some of Mr. Trump’s policies becoming reality is enough to send the U.S. economy into a growth spurt not seen in years.

Imagine if Congress would actually get behind this president’s America-first policies? How many millions more would find jobs, self-sufficiency, and become contributing members of a better and greater society?

The American people should really start to demand that happen.
