All leading economic forecasters said it would be impossible for President Trump’s MAGAnomic plans to generate 3% GDP growth in the first year. President Obama said it was impossible and Trump would need a “magic wand, or something“. Well, three months after taking office (April-June), it was Quarter 2, and the U.S. GDP began growing over three percent. Again in Quarter 3 (July-Sept), the same benchmark was exceeded. And now Q4 (Oct-Dec) the New York Fed says, yes, GDP growth is 3.2%. (Photo) NEW YORK (Reuters) – The New York Federal Reserve on Friday kept its view on U.S. gross
Everyone knows that a yuge part of BarackHussein´s anti-American Decline and Decay agenda was to keep the US economy from growing. But no one was allowed to say it out loud because everyone - under threat of lynching-by-"racism" - had to play along with the ludicrous charade about his "good intentions", being a black-looking cicero with Islamic-sympathies and all. Also, the Enemedia is still trying to brainwash normal people into believing economic growth is "anti-environmental, a pre-industrial "green" lifestyle being the cherished goal. Let them all decay in their own decline...
President Donald Trump corrected his Chief of Staff John Kelly after he said that the president had “evolved” on the wall.“There’s been an evolutionary process that this president has gone through,” Kelly said in an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier, pointing out that Trump had “very definitely changed his attitude” towards DACA recipients and the wall.But Trump pushed back on Twitter against the suggestion that he had evolved on the wall.“The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” Trump said. (Tweet) He explained that parts of the
Yesterday saw two famous Trump-haters eschewing Hitler in finding murderous tyrants with whom to compare President Trump. J. Marsolo notes elsewhere on these pages that just prior to the release of President Trump´s Fake News Awards, Republican Senator Jeff Flake described President Trump´s criticism of media reporting as similar to Stalin´s practice of imprisoning and executing critics of his regime because Trump once employed the words "enemy of the people" to describe fake news media. I guess that Flake is unaware of Henrik Ibsen, the world-famous Norwegian playwright who popularized the expression in the late nineteenth century. (Photo) After Republican
Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— California’s attorney general said Wednesday he is concerned about open-ended immigration sweeps at a time he and other state officials say the Trump administration should be concentrating on deporting dangerous felons.Attorney General Xavier Becerra said while it is the federal government’s responsibility to protect the nation’s borders, the goal should be public safety, not deporting otherwise law-abiding immigrants who are in the country illegally.“We will, as always, work with our federal partners in every respect to go after drug dealers, human traffickers, potential terrorists,” Becerra said. “We’re not in the business of deportation. We’re in the business of
Arizona lawmaker Jeff Flake compared Donald Trump to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin on Wednesday, delivering a blistering attack on the president to a nearly empty U.S. Senate chamber.The Republican has become one of Trump´s favorite targets, earning a presidential nickname – ´Jeff Flakey´ – since his impending retirement has freed him to openly castigate the White House on several fronts.´It is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies,´ Flake said, citing a Trump tweet in which he branded five news outlets ´the enemy of
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) arrogantly dismissed the Trump tax cut bonuses as “crumbs” and “pathetic” in a press conference last Thursday.Botox Pelosi is one of the wealthiest members of Congress; she is completely removed from the everyday working American.What a despicable woman.On Wednesday it was announced that Apple will pay $38 billion in taxes to the U.S. government to return money it had stashed overseas.

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), no doubt gearing up to run for president in 2020, became unhinged during Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.Booker glared crazily at Nielsen as he smashed his fists in protest of President Trump’s alleged “S***hole,” comments made during a meeting with Democrats on DACA. (Photo/Tweet/Video) Daily Caller published a partial transcript of Booker’s tirade: “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting. “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss
On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise. Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump. Okay, actions speak louder than words, if you want to begin, just begin that long road back to proving you’re not a racist, you’re not bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and
WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher. "I don´t see any
A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up
From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.
Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up
Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
