America Needs New “Experts” in Every Field

This week we witnessed the spectacle of so-called “expert” economists – men and women supposedly revered in their field – being humiliated by the Labor Department’s jobs report for May. These “experts” weren’t just wrong, they were more wrong than any group of experts in their field have ever been.

The consensus of those “experts” going into Friday was that the U.S. economy had shed more than 8 million jobs during the month of May and that the new rate of unemployment would approach 20%. They based that expectation on careful study and analysis, along with their collected wisdom gathered over years of experience in the field of economics.

Yet, when the numbers came in, it turned out that the phenomenal Trump economy had actually added jobs during May. And not just a few jobs, mind you, nor even a few thousand jobs. The economy added 2.51 million jobs in May, more than the U.S. economy had ever added in any month since records began to be kept. Rather than  rising up to 20%, the rate of unemployment in fact dropped dramatically to 13.3%.

Why did this happen? Part of it has to do with the fact that, over the past few months, the U.S. has been sailing in uncharted economic waters as it has dealt with it’s first-ever voluntarily self-imposed recession.The simple fact of the matter is that no one really knew going in how our or any other nation’s economy would react to the insane manner in which we have responded to this viral gift from China.

But the other part of it in the economic field is political bias among the economist community, at least those who are surveyed by the corrupt national news media, almost all of whom are leftist Democrats. Their bias is to assume that the Trump economic program will be disastrous, which is why these “experts” have been surprised by almost every monthly jobs report for the last 3-1/2 years. Their consensus projections have consistently underestimated the monthly jobs reports, just as they consistently overestimated pretty much every one during the 8 disastrous years of Barack Hussein Obama.

Obviously, our corrupt media establishment should be surveying a more diverse set of economists to make these “consensus” projections.

Equally obvious is our country’s need for a more expert group of medical “experts,” particularly when it comes to the field of control of communicable diseases. Literally every prediction made by the two “experts” upon whom President Trump relied during this response to the Wuhan Virus – Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx – has turned out to be just as spectacularly wrong as this week’s projection by our economic “experts.” These two doctors, along with the equally inept meatheads at the Centers for Disease Control, are mainly responsible for having put more than 30 million Americans out of work and for our nation’s school children’s likely loss of a full year of learning.

Just as the media needs to rely on a more diverse set of economic “experts,” our government needs to gather together a much more diverse set of medical “experts” the next time China sends a viral plague to our shores.

No group of “experts” has been more consistently surprise than those in the oil and gas field over the past few months. Just a month ago, there is not one single “expert” in that field who believed the price for a barrel of West Texas Intermediate would be anywhere above $20. Yet, there it sits today, right on the cusp of $40 months before any “expert” thought that might be possible.

Similarly, the “experts” in the field of “climate change” have been completely and consistently wrong about literally everything since that field of quasi-science was invented out of whole cloth in the 1980s. It was the biggest scam in world history until the whole “Russia Collusion” scam was devised by the Clinton campaign and the FBI in 2016.

The field of education literally cries out for new experts in every discipline and at every level. America’s public schools are just mills of mediocrity and its universities little more than operations of Marxist indoctrination, and have been for decades now.

America needs new experts, hopefully some real ones. The “experts” we rely on today are killing us.

That is all.

Biden Goes Full-on Fascist in Targeting Fossil Fuel Executives for Prison

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Remember, Quid Pro Joe is the “moderate” among the leading Democrat presidential contenders. – Earlier this week, Joe Biden promised to imprison fossil fuel executives for the alleged impacts their companies have had on the climate in a clear effort to pander to the Democrat Party’s radical base. In making the pledge, Biden – the so-called “moderate” in the Democrat field of candidates – joins leftist radicals like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth warren in promising not to just further regulate coal, oil and natural gas in the U.S. but to imprison executives from those key U.S. industries.

As reported by Joshua Caplan at Breitbart, Biden made the remarks during a campaign event attended by dozens in Peterborough, New Hampshire:

“If we don’t stop using fossil fuels–” an attendee began a question to the candidate.

“We’re all dead,” Biden interrupted.

Earlier in the event, Biden vowed as president to hold energy giants liable for global warming and made a pledge to even jail executives.

“We have to set sort of guide rails down now, so between the years 2021 and 2030, it’s irreversible – the path we set ourselves on. And one of which is doing away with any substance for fossil fuels – number one,” Biden said.

“Number two, holding them liable for what they have done,” he said of fossil fuel executives, “particularly in those cases where your underserved neighborhoods and – you know the deal, okay. And by the way, when they don’t want to deliver, put them in jail. I’m not joking about this.”

Here’s a video clip:

Ok, so, he’s “not joking” about putting people who run companies in fully-regulated industries in jail for doing things their companies all had local, state and federal government permits to do. Let’s be clear about this: Both the coal and oil and gas industries are regulated by all of those levels of government. Literally every action any company in either industry makes requires a permit by some government agency to make.

Local governments regulate their traffic, truck sizes on specific roadways, their dust and noise creation; state governments regulate their surface mining, pit mining, drilling and hydraulic fracturing operations. Oil and gas pipelines that do not cross state lines are fully regulated by state agencies; those that do cross state lines are regulated by both state and federal agencies. Refineries and import/export facilities are regulated by agencies/commissions/councils at all levels of government.

This has been the case since these industries were conceived and instituted, and yet now every leading candidate for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination proposes to toss company executives into prison for undertaking the production of the fuel sources that drive the U.S. and global economy, all of which was permitted and licensed in advance by a vast array of government entities. This is what Quid Pro Joe and the other leading Democrats propose now to retroactively turn into crimes.

This is full-on fascism, folks. It is brutish, unthinking, moronic thuggery. And of course, it’s exactly where the global religion of Climate Change wants to take our society: Into the pits of socialist fascism.

You could never make this stuff up. Not in a million years.

 

That is all.

On This Thanksgiving, Be Thankful For All Of This WINNING

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Given that today’s Thanksgiving, I figured it would be a good time to lecture you all on all the many things I am thankful for today. – Not that you needed it – everybody else is doing the same thing, after all, including the doofuses who host the morning news show on our local TV stations here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. They are weird people, but I’m thankful for them because they do provide periodic comic relief. Like when they try to predict the weather here in North Texas more than 4-5 hours in advance. It’s honestly hilarious.

Anyway, here are a bunch of things I am thankful for on this cold and rainy Thanksgiving morning:

Family – Yeah, I know, this is obligatory, right? But I truly do have a wonderful family, filled with brothers and sisters and kids and grandkids and the most wonderful, patient, kind and understanding wife who ever lived. I even have in-laws who I really love, one of whom kept me up too late drinking really good wine last night. So, I blame my hangover on family. And what good is family without hangovers?

The Trump Economy – Every major stock market index closed at a record high level on Wednesday, the 5th of the last 8 trading days this has happened.

Adam Schiff – Seriously, what would life be like without ol’ Bug-eyes? Talk about comic relief, this guy’s better than every sitcom on television, other than The Neighborhood, which I watch religiously. Cedric the Entertainer cracks me up, and that guy who plays Dave is epic. So I’m thankful for them, too.

But seriously, Adam Schiff is a better Bond villain than any of the real Bond villains. Everything this guy does repulses anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities. He is the perfect poster child for today’s Democrat Party: Corrupt, inept, corrupt, stupid, corrupt, evil and corrupt. What more could you ask for?

Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures – Have you ever seen a more rebellious mouth appliance than those things? Really and truly, this woman is worth about $200 million, and she can’t afford a set of fake teeth that won’t come loose and try to jump out of her mouth every time she holds a press conference? I salute you, Nancy Pelosi’s Dentures! You are awesome!

America’s oil and gas industry – Think about it: Where would you be today without America’s oil and gas industry? Let me answer that question for you:  You’d be sitting in a cold, damp home with no way to cook your food, no lights, no television, no cell phone, no toothpaste, no makeup for the women-folk, no bottled water, no refrigerated food, maybe no food at all given that most plant fertilizers are manufactured using natural gas (did you know that?), and no way to get anywhere else unless you owned a horse and buggy.

In short, without America’s magnificent, glorious oil and natural gas industry you would be living a 19th century existence filled with deprivation and hardship. So quit bitching about the price for regular unleaded anytime it goes up 2 cents. Be thankful you have the blessing of being able to pay for this miracle that made modern society possible.

The Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns – I’m thankful to my favorite pro and college football teams for demonstrating earlier than usual that they are pitiful mediocrities who are going nowhere yet again, because it frees up all sorts of time for me to focus on other, more important things. Those rose bushes really needed trimming. That’s far preferable to the Dodgers, my favorite baseball team, who took me all the way into the playoffs before folding up like a cheap suit in the NLDS this season. Talk about a time sink.

WINNING. So much WINNING. – Yes, even though all of my sports obsessions are miserable losers, I am so thankful this Thanksgiving for President Donald John Trump and all the incessant WINNING he brings to all of our lives, whether we appreciate it or not.

In addition to the roaring economy and resultant booming stock market he has delivered, this is a President with an actual sense of humor. The best part of that sense of humor is that he employs it each and every day in efforts to infuriate leftist nitwits like Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan and their corrupt toadies in our fake news media. Like yesterday, when he tweeted out that meme with his face superimposed over Rocky’s body, knowing that it would throw every leftist/media toady in the country into a snit fit, and sure enough, that’s exactly what happened.

I keep thinking that all these leftist nitwits will at some point figure out that President Trump is the greatest Twitter troller of all-time, but no. They’re just not capable. They can’t help themselves, and I’m thankful for that, too.

Why? Because it’s WINNING, and I love all this WINNING.

And turkey, and dressing, and sweet potatoes and broccoli and rice casserole and pecan pie. I’m thankful for those things, too. And I’m fixing to go eat all that stuff.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, folks. I’m thankful for all of you, too.

That is all.
