The Campaign Update Week In Review – Soooo Much Winning!

Here’s where we are in President Donald Trump’s Administration eight days before Christmas…

  • The economy is booming, with the New York branch of the Federal Reserve now estimating it will grow at the pace of 3.98% in the fourth quarter.  That would represent our third straight quarter above 3% economic growth, a feat not achieved in over a decade.
  • Unemployment is nearing a record low, asThirteen states this year have seen their unemployment rates drop to the lowest levels ever recorded since the federal government began keeping track of state-level data more than four decades ago.”
  • Regulations are vanishing at an amazing pace –  When he came into office in January, one of the first things President Trump did was issue an executive order mandating that, for every new regulation his agencies propose, they must eliminate at least two existing regulations.  The Trump Administration announced that it has in fact eliminated a staggering 22 existing regulations for each new proposal.  This rapid elimination of the Obama regulatory agenda is probably the main reason why the economy is booming today.
  • Obama holdovers are also vanishing at a rapid pace More than 700 employees have now left the EPA since President Trump took office.  Of course, as a friend pointed out Twitter, most of them will just go back to the radical leftwing anti-development groups they came from and continuing being a burden to society, but at least taxpayers won’t have to pay their ridiculous salaries anymore.
  • Meanwhile, at the Department of the Interior (DOI), Secretary Ryan Zinke announced this week that he had fired 4 senior DOI employees for charges of sexual harassmenet, and  said “I will remove 400 more if necessary.”  Cool.  Get after it, Mr. Secretary.
  • The Dow Jones Industrials closed at a record high on Friday, marking the 69th time that has happened since Donald Trump won the election over the Pantsuit Princes last November.  That is not a coincidence, either.
  • The largest tax cut in American history is on the verge of being passed – As mentioned in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the announcements by GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker that they will support the bill would give Mitch McConnell the 51 votes he needs on Tuesday to send the bill to the President’s desk.
  • CNN, the king of the fake news universe, continues to suck wind behind Fox News and MSNBC in the cable news race.
  • The Federal Communications Commission rescinded the Obama Administration’s absurdly mis-named “Net Neutrality” rules.  These rules actually were designed to give favorable treatment to Obama-preferred Internet behemoths like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, in that presidency’s fervent efforts to have the government picking winners and losers in every industry.  No more.
  • #MeToo meets “Hardball” – fake MSNBC host Chris Matthews found himself the latest NBC celebrity to be embroiled in the never-ending sexual abuse scandal on Saturday, when it was revealed that the network had paid out $40,000 to an accuser in 1999 and formally reprimanded him for his behavior.  Of course, like congress, the Peacock Network – which obviously has had a whole bunch of peacocks in rut running around its halls for many years – kept it all a secret until it had no choice.  With Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and now Matthews all outed, The Campaign Update just can’t wait to find out what NBC has been keeping secret about its other hosts.
  • The Mueller-led attempted coup d’etat continues to unravel, and leftwingers are getting so desperate that they are now resorting to sending California Congresswoman Jackie Speer out to push fake “rumors” that the President is planning to fire Mueller before Christmas.   Hilariously, 70 year-old commie producer Rob Reiner and 80+ year-old washed up actor George Takkei both threatened to “take to the streets” should Trump fire the Witch-Hunter-in-Chief.  Now, that would be fun to watch.

Sadly, that won’t be happening, because Mueller won’t be going anywhere, at least not until the DOJ Inspector General issues his final report on wrongdoing within the DOJ and FBI in January.  Then, all bets will be off.

Just another week in Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.
