Obama spokesman: Trump ´owns´ Wall
Street´s collapse for bragging on its rise

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/6/2018 12:56:05 PM

As Wall Street tumbled into an historically bad day today, former President Obama’s one-time spokesman suggested that President Trump will “own the fall” because has bragged about the huge increase, something the aide said Obama never did. (Snip) But in fact Obama never shut up about how the market had recovered under his watch. On Twitter, former spokesman Jay Carney, now an Amazon vice president, said Obama was cautious. “Good time to recall that in the previous administration, we NEVER boasted about the stock market — even though the Dow more than doubled on Obama´s watch — because we knew two

Comments:
Ah yes, that pathetic hack Jay Carney rears his ugly head. I really am so sick of the constant blatant lies by the Democrats. Obama did in fact brag about the stock market. In the links below he bragged about saving it. All he did was pat himself on the back for all the allegedly wonderful things he did like Dodd Frank, ´rescuing GM, etc. when we know his policies and regulations really hurt this country and his ´successes´ were pure fiction. Bedard does a great job of illustrating that.

Contd. Don´t forget this is the same Jay Carney who has Russian propaganda posters hanging in his kitchen. Link below. In that link it states that he and his wife, Claire Shipman, met in Moscow in the 1990´s while he was working for Time and she worked for CNN. Why didn´t the FBI investigate him for alleged Russian collusion?

As J.P. Morgan said when asked for a stock market prediction; "The Stock Market will fluctuate." Always has. Always will. A sell off is a buying opportunity, not a market collapse. The economic engine is running full steam and the job growth is real. And Trump can still brag about that.

Yup he asked for a bit of this. But there´s a reason people grew confident perhaps over confident, the days of punishing business for having the audacity to do business in the US were over. A sell off was inevitable. Thought of holding my 401K gains myself.

Would never be a surprise if it turns out some big-money anti-Trump interests triggered the selloff to make him look bad.

Amazing how much the Obama gang persists in criticizing Trump. They appear to be very active even though their time is over. If there is a coup going on, they are hip deep in it.

Carney said the Obama gang never boasted about the stock market. That´s because it was under performing while Obama was in office.

First, why does Obama need a spokesman? Nobody cares about what he has to say.

Second, the fact that Democrats are jumping ugly on the stock market dive tells me to be wary about the cause of the dive. It is possible that a few well-placed players can cause such a thing to happen. Wasn’t it Soros who played around with crashing International currencies?

O´Diddler is correct, our wonderful President is leading an economic sunrise. Black clouds are parting everywhere.

Wall Street has corrections all the time. On the whole, every financial indicator is on the rise.

Carney and Stinky´s economy never recovered. They had to change the monitored Economic parameters and Gerry Rigged the index every time they needed a marginal growth rate of 1 - 2%.

President Trump does not control the stock market. The stock market would not be a market if it did not go up and go down.

Trump should use the Reagan tactic when asked about the market, just shrug and say “the market goes up, and the market goes down” as he walks away.

The lawyer representing a former FBI informant demanded Wednesday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions open an investigation into unauthorized and falsified leaks to the media by “anonymous federal officials.” The informant’s lawyer said the leakers disparaged her client in an effort to silence him from providing testimony to Congress regarding his role in exposing Russia’s long-term strategy to dominate the global uranium market and how Moscow achieved its goal in 2010 of obtaining roughly 20 percent of the U.S. uranium mining industry, according to a letter delivered to the DOJ.

As part of its obsessive coverage of Russiagate, CNN sent reporter Drew Griffin to Florida to interview an elderly woman who runs a Facebook group that was targeted by Russian trolls prior to the 2016 election. The woman, Florine Gruen Goldfarb, had no idea that her Team Trump Broward County Facebook page was targeted by Russian operatives, but that didn’t stop Griffin from haranguing her anyway.

A viral tweet this week alleging a 20-year-old with an expired ID was able to buy an AR-15 rifle in five minutes is a lie. It’s a damned lie. The viral tweet, which has been shared by more than 9,000 social media users, quotes a two-year-old blog post written by then-20-year-old blogger Cody Davis. The quote reads: “I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I’m 20 and my ID is expired.” Not to put too fine a point on it, but he´s lying.

The new document filed in federal court Wednesday by Mueller’s team was put under seal by the court. Judge Amy Berman Jackson is overseeing the case. According to NBC News, Mueller’s team is looking to see if Manafort promised Stephen Calk, the president of Federal Savings Bank, a job in the Trump administration, possibly in return for loans. Calk became one of Trump’s economic advisers in August 2016, and Manafort received loans in December 2016 and January 2017 from

Marvel Studios‘ “Black Panther” is being hailed as the most diverse superhero movie in Hollywood history, but it’s not diverse enough for some progressives who want to know: Where are all the gay characters?

But filmmakers ditched a lesbian romance subplot from the original comic books, prompting an outcry from the LGBT community. Actress Florence Kasumba stoked the flames of outrage when she revealed that scenes of lesbian flirtation filmed during production were left on the cutting-room floor. “The final

And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said. The idea is to provide people with a reliable income

Billy Graham and Ruth Bell met at Wheaton College in the fall of 1940. A vivacious and feisty beauty who had grown up in China as the daughter of Presbyterian medical missionaries, Ruth was the prize catch of her class. After a first date, to a performance of Handel’s “Messiah,” Billy wrote home to announce that he had met the girl he planned to marry. Ruth described Billy as “a man that knew God in a very unusual way.” Graham died Wednesday in his home in Montreat, N.C., at the age of 99. The courtship between Billy and Ruth, though hardly

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century´s two greatest religious leaders, Martin Luther King and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country showered him with honors. So, the subtitle of Grant Wacker´s 2014 book "America´s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation"

Outspoken leftist and "Grey´s Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo challenged Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whom she referred to as a "b****", to a physical fight on Friday. For real. "Someone tell this b**** to meet me outside," wrote Pompeo, referring to Ingraham, via Twitter. "Im [sic] so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week." (Snip) The actress was reacting to a video clip, which she quote-tweeted, of Ingraham suggesting NBA star LeBron James quit the political activism and "shut up and dribble" — a reference to her 15-year-old book titled "Shut Up & Sing." Pompeo continued the taunting,

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

Following the recent Parkland shooting, a number of “movements” and activist groups popped up, and the standout similarity across all of them is that they’re fronted by teenagers. (Photo) NOTE: at the request of the parent, we are keeping some information anonymous at this time. This afternoon, the Gateway Pundit received a tip from a father of one of the Parkland school shooter survivors. Concerned and enraged, he confirmed what Gateway Pundit previously reported: these children are being used as political tools by the far left to further anti-Conservative rhetoric and an anti-gun agenda.
