Good News for America Abounds – Democrats, Corrupt News Media Hardest Hit

“We need new experts. Monkeys throwing crap at a poster with random numbers on it are more accurate.”

That’s a quote from a friend when I posted a link on Facebook to the story that Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Non-Manufacturing Index (NMI) rose to 57.1% in June, which naturally was vastly stronger the “experts” quoted by the corrupt news media had anticipated.

From that story at PeoplesPunditDaily:

Forecasts ranged from a low of 46.0 to a high of 52.7. The consensus forecast was 50.1. This is the largest single-month percentage-point gain since the NMI debut in 1997.

Last week, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Manufacturing Index (PMI) also came in stronger than expected at 52.6% in June, up from 43.1% in May. This reading further indicated the overall economy in expansion for the second straight month after one month of contraction that ended 131 consecutive months of growth.

[End]

This latest piece of great news follows last week’s Labor Department report of non-farm payroll job additions for June of 4.8 million, which almost doubled the “experts'” projection of 2.5 million.

Naturally, everyone in the national Democrat Party and in the corrupt news media – but I am being redundant – will respond to this wonderful news exactly as they responded to last Friday’s new study proving that Hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating COVID-19: With abject outrage and horror.

Because – repeat after me – Good News For America is Always, Without Exception, Bad News for the Democrats and their Corrupt Media Toadies.

Here’s another piece of great news for America that hits the Democrat/Media Complex of Disinformation hardest: In a unanimous ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that states do indeed have the absolute right to require Electors to vote for the president candidate that actually won their respective state. Apparently, whomever it is that has been compromising Chief Justice John Roberts either did not care about this decision or is currently out of the country.

From a report at CNBC:

Under the complex rules that govern American elections, it is the vote of the Electoral College that ultimately determines the winner of the presidency.

Virtually every state — besides Maine and Nebraska — allocates all of its Electoral College representation to electors who have committed to vote for the winner of the state popular vote. And most states, including Washington and Colorado, have laws that require electors to vote for their pledged candidate. The electors argued that the enforcement of those laws was unconstitutional.

Micheal Baca, the Colorado elector, was replaced before he could cast his vote for former Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Three Washington electors were hit with $1,000 fines after voting for former Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Lower courts divided on the issue, with courts in Colorado and Washington ultimately coming down on opposite sides. The federal appeals court in Colorado sided with Baca, while the Washington Supreme Court sided with the state and upheld the fines.

The Supreme Court’s action on Monday affirmed the Washington court’s decision and reversed the Colorado decision.

[End]

So, here we see a looming strategy the Democrats had hoped to deploy following the November elections shot down by the Supremes before it can get underway. Somewhere, Brian Stelter is binge-eating a dozen jelly donuts because his stress level has shot through the roof.

Serendipity strikes. – As luck would have it, Senator Chuck Grassley posted this tweet as I was typing this piece up:

Understand that Chuck Grassley is not just some random senator. He is the long-time chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and will take that post from Lindsey Graham next January if the GOP holds onto its Senate majority. Grassley knows that is happening with the Durham investigation, and if you read the wording of that tweet carefully, he is conveying his belief that prosecutions are in the offing.

He is also warning Durham and Barr not to wait until after the election to engage in prosecutions under the absurd reasoning that doing so would influence the presidential race. The fact is that delaying prosecutions would in and of itself be an overtly political act that would influence the race.

That tweet from Grassley is a public signal of his approval for Barr and Durham to get their butts in gear. Coming as it does from the Senator who will most likely be in charge of the DOJ budget in a few months, that is a strong signal indeed.

If Barr/Durham follow Grassley’s signal, that would also be great news for America and awful news for the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies.

Let’s go.

That is all.

May Jobs Report Blows “Experts” Out of the Water

We really, really, really need some new experts.

2.51 million jobs GAINED vs. estimate of more than 8 million jobs LOST.

Unemployment rate of 13.1% vs. estimate of 18%.

Stunning. The Trump U.S. economy just will not play along with the Democrat Party/corrupt news media narrative. That noise you hear right now is the sound of leftist, America-hating heads exploding in unison all over the country.

Here was the narrative as CNN posted it early this morning:

The coronavirus pandemic has devastated America’s economy and millions of workers have lost their jobs. It is by far the worst economic shock most people have witnessed in their lifetimes and it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Economists polled by Refinitiv expect the US economy to shed another 8 million jobs in May, bringing the tally of jobs lost during the coronavirus pandemic to 28.5 million — more than three times the number of jobs lost during the 2008 financial crisis.
That would push the unemployment rate to nearly 20%, a record high. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is set to release its jobs report at 8:30 am ET Friday, began tracking monthly data in 1948.

[End]

Hah. Fooled you clowns.

No more stimulus bills, Congress. Just keep getting America back to work.

That is all.

Boom: Trump Sets Target Date For Re-Opening America

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

Early Tuesday morning, President Trump continued to signal that it is his intention to re-open the U.S. economy and get Americans back to work sooner rather than later. Repeating yesterday’s theme that the government can’t afford to implement a draconian “cure” that is worse than the China Virus itself, the President issued the following tweet:

A few hours later, President Trump had this to say on “Outnumbered” on Fox News:

Transcript:

Trump: The Senate and the House, we seem to be getting a long as much as you can get along. We seem to be getting a long now on a bill. I think that maybe had even less than an impact than the fact that we’re opening up this incredible country. Because we have to do that.

I’d love to have it all open by Easter [April 12]. I would love to have it open by Easter, I will tell you that right now. I would love that. It’s such an important day for other reasons, but I’ll make it an important day for this, too. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.

[End]

For an investment community hungering to see a bottom reached in the stock market indexes, this is a crucial moment in time. There is no way the markets can find their bottom when they have no certainty – or even any real idea – about when business might resume and start getting the economy fully back on-line.

Markets were already soaring today on the prospect of the Democrats caving in and allowing the Senate stimulus measure to move through the process. The President’s move to set a firm target date for beginning to get the economy moving again will only serve to support that positive sentiment among investors longing for some good news.

As usual, President Trump’s sense of timing yesterday and today was impeccable. Be glad he’s your President.

That is all.

CNN Plumbs New Depths of Depravity With Weinstein Puff Piece

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

Getting tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The Trump economy just will not cooperate with the Democrat/media effort to create a recession out of whole cloth. On Monday, all three major stock indexes – the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq – finished at all-time record highs.

True to form, CNBC, in its coverage of this happy event for America, noted in a sub-head that this latest major rally has come as a shock to all the experts: “Nearly everyone on Wall Street underestimated the strength of this year’s stock market.”

ummm, if the “experts” are always wrong about everything, shouldn’t we be looking for new people to refer to as “experts?”

Likely conversation at CNN editorial meeting…

CNN editor: Hey, uh, we appear to have gotten all the mileage we can from all these stories canonizing this Al-Baghdadi guy. Anybody have any thoughts on which human pond slug we glorify next?

CNN fake reporter #1: How about we do another 5,000 word piece on Beto and what he plans to do with the remainder of his sainted life? He’s so cute, and we could use the word “dusty” and compare him to a Kennedy…

CNN editor: Normally I’d jump all over that one, but we’ve done it 3-4 times before…

CNN fake reporter #2: What about Al Franken? He’s making a big comeback you know, or trying to.

CNN editor: uh, we need to tread lightly on the whole Franken thing. I mean, who among us hasn’t sexually assaulted a sleeping actress, or at least wanted to, right?

[Nodding heads all around the table. Brian Stelter mainlines a powdered sugar donut. Jake Tapper combs his hair. Chris Cuomo sits in a corner staring at the wall.]

CNN fake reporter #3: I know! Let’s do a glowing day-in-the-life profile of Ed Buck! He’s being treated so terribly out there in California – you know, he probably only killed two or three male prostitutes.

CNN editor: Good thoughts there, but it would’ve been better to do that before he got arrested – we might have bailed him out of all of that, and he could still be funding Democrat politicians. I mean, what’s a day in his life like now that he’s being held at the county jail? It’s hard to get 3,000 words out of his one daily phone call.

CNN fake reporter #4: ummmm…is Pol Pot still alive?

CNN editor: Pretty sure he’s dead.

CNN fake reporter #4: Idi Amin?

CNN editor: Dead, too.

CNN fake reporter #4: What about Generalissimo Francisco Franco?

CNN edtor: Still dead.

CNN fake reporter #4: How about Joseph Goebbels? I mean, I know he’s dead, too, but he is Zucker’s role model after all…might score some points with the boss!

CNN editor: It’s a valid thought, but our Democrat masters might not appreciate us being so up front on that one. We’re supposed to maintain this facade, you know, or at least try to.

[More nodding heads around the table. Alisyn Camerota daydreams about graduating 6th grade on her 3rd try. Chris Cuomo bats at an imaginary fly. Brian Stelter emulates his life’s hero Jake Tapper by running a comb through his imaginary hair.]

Anderson Cooper: I got it! Let’s do a positive profile of our buddy Harvey Weinstein! Nobody’s doing that one!

CNN editor: We have a winner! Get on it, Chloe Melas!

[End]

Yes, friends, just when you thought the demented cretins at the fakest fakety-fake fake news channel on television could not stoop any lower, they go out of their way to prove you wrong yet again. Last night, CNN published a story by entertainment fake reporter Chloe Melas with the I-kid-you-not headline of “Harvey Weinstein weakened but unwavering two years later.”

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

Think I’m kidding? Check out these snips from the piece:

CNN has learned from those closest to Weinstein that he isn’t sorry about his alleged misconduct. He’s combative, maintains he is innocent of any crime and is planning for a career comeback post-trial. His attorneys have maintained that any sexual contact between Weinstein and his accusers was consensual.

Harvey’s combative! He’s punching back at his tormentors! Unwavering in his innocence!

“Anyone who looks at him or talks to him knows this has taken an emotional and physical toll. Is his health failing? Not in a life or death situation, but I think he’s just breaking down,” one of his friends told CNN.

His health is suffering, the poor man! Feel sorry for him!

Weinstein used to spend his days in the Tribeca offices of The Weinstein Company, the movie studio he co-founded in 2005 with his now estranged brother, Bob Weinstein. These days he’s mostly alone in his Manhattan apartment, “obsessing” about the trial and the women who have accused him, said one of his friends.

Oh, noes! Harvey’s lonely! He’s obsessing about his accusers who have wronged him so!

“He feels like he is owed an apology from Hollywood,” the source added. “I think there’s a part of him that thinks he will come out on the other side of this and be welcomed back to some version of his old life.”

He’s owed an apology! He can’t wait to get back to work! Why is he being mistreated so???

“When you ask what life is like for Harvey, all you have to do is turn on nightly news and see women screaming at him, ‘You’re a rapist,'” Rotunno said. “People have sort of made their decision in the court of public opinion and that’s been my problem with a lot of the coverage.”

Don’t judge him! Those mean women!!! Why does everyone keep judging him????

“There’s a difference between sins and crimes,” Rotunno said. “You may think that you don’t like the way Harvey conducted himself at times or choices that he’s made, but that doesn’t mean he’s a rapist.”

He’s Bill Clinton! We didn’t impeach Bill Clinton! Well, ok, we impeached him, but we didn’t remove him from office! Stop this madness!!!!

I would be fair and also point out that Ms. Melas then goes on to point out the likely truth about the allegations made against this walking, talking horror movie monster, but she and everyone else at CNN do not deserve fairness here. Because they decided to do this semi-puff piece voluntarily, for no reason other than that they wanted to.

Truly, the depths of CNN’s depravity have no floor.

[NOTE: About 15 minutes after I published this piece, CNN revised the headline on this story to read, ”

Harvey Weinstein combative and in denial ahead of rape trial, inner circle says

You could never, never, ever make these people up, folks.]

 

That is all.

Jobless Claims Drop Again. “Experts” Shocked…Again.

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

This dang Trump economy just will not cooperate with our elite betters! – As Reuters carefully reports today, initial claims for jobless benefits dropped sharply yet again last week, signaling that the U.S. economy just refuses to accede to the wishes of the Democrats and our fake news media, who are doing everything they can to pretend there’s a recession going on. From the Reuters report:

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 12,000 to a seasonally adjusted 209,000 for the week ended Aug. 17, the Labor Department said on Thursday. The decline was sharper than expected. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims would drop to 216,000 in the latest week.

But the story’s lead paragraph tells us so much about the Reuters mindset:

The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits fell sharply last week, suggesting the labor market was holding firm despite a manufacturing slowdown and concerns the economy is on a path toward recession. [emphasis added]

Folks, there is no “manufacturing slowdown” in the U.S. economy, although there certainly is in China and the EU. This is simply nonsense being pushed by the media. There is not a single economic indicator that would imply that our economy is in or about to go into a recession anytime in the foreseeable future. The only people saying it is are people in the media and “economists” on the political left, all of whom are hoping for a recession to save the Democrats in the 2020 elections.

Sorry, ain’t happening.

So, yet again, good news for average Americans is shocking bad news for the elite media and the Democrat Party. Funny how that works, huh?

That is all.

BREAKING: The Trump Economy Produces Another Stunning Jobs Report

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

The Trump economy continues to surprise all the “experts,” vastly surpassing pre-market expectations by posting a whopping jobs gain of 263,000 for the month of April. Here’s a summary from Fox Business:

The U.S. economy added 263,000 jobs in April, soaring past Wall Street’s expectations for an increase of 185,000 jobs, while unemployment fell the lowest rate since 1969.

The unemployment rate dropped to 3.6 percent, beating analysts’ expectations of 3.8 percent. The labor force participation rate, meanwhile, was little changed at 62.8 percent, from 63 percent the month prior. Average hourly earnings – which investors were closely watching for signs of inflation – rose by 6 cents to $27.77. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by about 3.2 percent, slightly missing expectations of 3.3 percent.

A majority of the job creation was concentrated in the professional and business services, which added 76,000 jobs in April. Construction employment rose by 33,000 jobs, while employment in the health care sector expanded by 27,000 jobs. Financial activities job creation ticked up by about 12,000. Manufacturing, however, was little changed for the third month in a row: Only 4,000 jobs were created in this sector during April, and over the past 12 months, the industry added a measly 22,000 jobs per month.

The job creation in April marks the 119th month of straight gains. Over the past year, the economy has added an average monthly gain of 213,000 jobs.

Here is even more incredible news contained in this jobs report:

  • Adult women unemployment rate – 3.1%, an all-time low;
  • Hispanic unemployment rate – all-time low of 3.6%;
  • Black unemployment rate – remained unchanged at 6.7%, an all-time low;

There were pockets of less-encouraging news, but overall this jobs report is stunningly good, one that surpassed “expert” expectations by a full 40%.

President Trump continues to prove what an amazing driver of economic growth and job creation the U.S. economy truly can be when it is unleashed from the shackles of over-regulation.

That is all.
