The Economy Is Thriving And Jobs Are
Booming: Why Trump Deserves Credit

Investor´s Business Daily, by Gary Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 2/5/2018 7:18:42 AM

President Trump delivered a plea for bipartisanship and unity in Tuesday night´s State of the Union address, asking leaders on both sides of the aisle to partner with him to create "a safe, strong and proud America." Beyond the president´s call for bipartisanship, he has also delivered on his promise to continue to take steps to boost our economy. And so far, his plan is working. Since President Trump was elected, more than 20 Consumer Technology Association (CTA) member companies have made 40 major job announcements and shared plans to create more than 250,000 U.S. jobs. Most recently, as the

Heard another tidbit on the news ( NPR of all places) that American oil companies are moving drilling rigs and pipeline crews from Canada to Texas. Not so much because of the difference in crude oil abundance but rather for the tax advantages that we now have -thanks to president Trump. Of course NPR portrayed it as an environmental disaster.

Every knows that Trump´s economy is booming. The question is, how can he parley his economic successes into cultural and media successes?

Our culture is debased and rotted from entertainment, "art", public education and media. Profanity has become normalized as has every sexual perversion you can think of.

The economy is only the first rung of a complicated ladder and if anyone can do it, it´s Trump. He needs our prayers.

There is no question of PDT getting the credit. No other person would have, or could have, approved the Keystone and Dakota pipelines, freed up ANWAR and offshore drilling, dispensed with years of waiting for permit approvals, allowed 100% immediate deduction for equipment purchases, reduced corporate taxes by 14% that can be used for investment and growing businesses. No person in the GOP, no Democrat would have done it, other than PDT.

Trump is using common sense and reversing Obama´s job-killing activities. So, in a way this boom was caused by Obama....he made things so bad it was easy to turn around.

ObamaCare Failure: Uninsured Rate
Hasn´t Budged In 3 Years, CDC Says
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 5/24/2018 7:30:22     Post Reply
Health Reform: For three years running, the uninsured rate has remained unchanged, new government data show. That means, despite massive taxpayer costs, ObamaCare is tapped out. It´s time to try something better. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the overall uninsured rate last year was 9.1%, the same as it was in 2015. If you take out retirees, who are automatically covered by Medicare, the uninsured rate was 10.7% last year, up a fraction from 10.5% in 2015. The uninsured rate for the near poor hasn´t budged in three years. And it´s climbed for those characterized by the CDC as "not poor."

SpyGate: Did the Obama administration spy on the Donald Trump campaign because it feared Russian hacking of the 2016 election? Or was it merely a smokescreen to cover up the real reason: to keep Trump from winning the presidency or take him down if he did? As the saying goes, timing is everything. Recent revelations keep pushing back the beginning of the CIA and FBI investigation into "Russian hacking" or "meddling" in the 2016 election further and further in time. This is significant, since the farther back in time the actual origin of the spying on Trump, the less likely it is that it had anything to do with Russian involvement in

Over the weekend, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman detailed how the liberal media sides with Hamas over President Trump. How correct he is. When I worked at the Pentagon, I had the honor to interact often with the Israel Defense Forces. In the years since, my admiration for those men and women and for the State of Israel has increased exponentially in response to the escalating terrorist threats the country faces, the hate the people endure, and the abandonment by many on the left and certain liberal or socialist "allies" its leadership suffers with diplomatic grace. Much of this abandonment coming because of

Iran Nukes: While all the hoopla over Deep-State spying on President Trump gets the media attention, something else important happened this week: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, not even one month on the job, unveiled a new U.S. strategy to deal with Iran. What´s significant is that the new strategy is a complete reversal of the make-nice policies that prevailed under President Obama. Gone are the gentle nudges intended to cause marginal shifts in Iran´s behavior; instead, the new strategy boldly aims for regime change in Iran. Whether it works or not, it is a worthwhile goal.

Growth: A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It´s another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for the good news. Should Democrats wave bye to the Blue Wave? Median household income has been steadily increasing under Trump, rising from $59,471 in January 2017 to $61,483 last month, according to Sentier Research, which tracks income on a monthly basis using census data. This also means that household income is now higher than it´s been in at least 50 years — after adjusting for inflation. This

Scandalous Media Bias: There have been two major ongoing investigations involving President Trump. One is looking into whether Trump colluded with Russia. It´s borne no fruit. The other involves abuse of power at the highest levels of government to hurt Trump and is producing damning evidence by the bushel. Guess which one the press is ignoring? National Review writer John Fund relates an interesting story. He was waiting to go on the air and struck up a conversation with another prominent reporter in the network´s green room. Why, he asked, aren´t reporters actively investigating the suspicious activities at the Justice Department and

Political Spying: As Robert Mueller´s chimerical Russia-Trump collusion probe grinds on, a real possible crime has been revealed: the collusion between the Justice Department, the FBI, the Clinton campaign and, possibly, the Obama administration, to plant a spy in the Trump campaign. If so, as some say, it´s bigger than Watergate. The spy´s name is Stefan Halper, a professor at Cambridge University who has high-level ties to both U.S. and British intelligence, as Daily Caller New Foundation investigative reporter Chuck Ross discovered. The revelation made Trump livid, and rightly so, as his tweet on Sunday afternoon plainly showed: "I hereby demand, and will

Tax Cuts: When Republicans were putting together their tax reform plan last year, a chorus of critics warned that it would devastate state budgets. Like so many other claims, this turned out to be false. The New York Times reported in November, for example, that "state and local officials in high-tax states like New York, New Jersey and California are warning the tax plan will strain state budgets." A "news analysis" in the Washington Post said the tax law would make "it harder for states and cities to pay their bills." A widely cited National Education Association report claimed the GOP tax bill

The Net Neutrality Zombie Lives!

Internet: The Senate has voted to raise net neutrality from the dead, a very bad idea. Worse, the 52-47 margin of victory included three Republicans who should know better. We hope it dies in the House. "Net neutrality" is one of those brilliant marketing gimmicks that passes as something that enhances equality and freedom, but in fact destroys it. President Obama´s Federal Communications Commission in 2015 imposed net neutrality, requiring internet service providers to treat all internet traffic the same. Sure, that sounds good, even democratic, but it isn´t. In fact, most economists agree, it will lead to slower times

Big Left Turn: Are socialists becoming the new Democratic Party mainstream? After candidates endorsed by the socialist party won nomination battles for state legislative seats in Pennsylvania and far-left progressives triumphed over moderates elsewhere, the answer seems to be yes. Four — count ´em, four — candidates backed by the Democratic Socialists of America won spots on the ballot during this week´s primary elections in the Keystone State. Two of them won´t even be opposed by a Republican in the general election. Some are writing it off as a fluke, a local aberration, but it isn´t.

Politics: Before President Trump even took the oath of office, constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe was calling for his impeachment. Tribe hasn´t stopped since. But 20 years ago, Tribe was singing a different tune about impeachment when a lawbreaking Democrat was in the White House. In early December, less than a month after Trump won the election, Tribe tweeted that impeachment should begin "on Inauguration Day." Eight days after Inauguration Day, Tribe declared that Trump was already guilty of "shredding the Constitution more monstrously than any other President in American history." He´s since claimed Trump should be impeached and removed from office for

GDP Fraud: Countries ruled by an authoritarian regime often cheat on their official GDP data, a new study shows. No surprise, really. But how do we know this? Well, it´s all about the light. What do we mean? A new working paper by Luis R. Martinez of the University of Chicago with the amusing title "How Much Should We Trust the Dictator´s GDP Estimates?" explores the unusual, but direct, link between the amount of light produced by an economy — as captured and measured through nighttime satellite photographs — and its GDP.

Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.

In a statement, the union said it would review the new policy and “challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” The union accused the league of contradicting its previous statements, and of ignoring players’ wishes in developing the new policy, which instructs that all team and league personnel should stand for the national anthem. “The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new ‘policy,’” the union said in a statement. “NFL players have
