“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.
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.
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.
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:
.@realDonaldTrump #CommonSense IF NO PROSECUTIONS TIL AFTER ELECTIONS SAD SAD //just think Flynn Mueller Impeachment/ The deep state is so deep that ppl get away w political crimes/Durham shld be producing some fruit of his labor
— ChuckGrassley (@ChuckGrassley) July 6, 2020
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.
That is all.
