PRESIDENT TRUMP ADDS $4-TRILLION IN U.S. WEALTH SINCE ELECTION---LIBERAL MEDIA STILL CHASING RUSSIANS

Money Talks………Bullshit Walks

While the Democrats and their complicit liberal media continues their narcissistic-obsessive witch-hunt to remove a sitting President with their ridiculous “Russian/Collusion” doctrine, Donald J. Trump has, (almost single-handedly), added FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS in wealth to the U.S. economy.

In March of this year, the British news service Independent reported Wall Street investors netted a three-trillion gain since the President was elected:

“Wall Street investors make $3 trillion since Donald Trump’s US presidential election victory

The Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index made up of more than 3,000 stocks, has gained about 12 per cent since the election

Stocks have added nearly $3 trillion to their paper value since Mr. Trump’s election as measured by the Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index.

The index, made up of more than 3,000 stocks, including an assortment of big companies, mid-sized businesses and small ones, has gained about 12 per cent since the election.”




On June 19th, 2017, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC that Trump had added another TRILLION to that gain:

“President Donald Trump's fulfilling of campaign promises is responsible for the recent stock market gains, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC on Monday.

"We're lowering taxes, we're cutting regulations, we're stimulating the workforce, helping to develop the workforce of the future, unleashing our energy resources and redoing our trade agreements," Ross said.

"That's the whole package that President Trump was elected on, and it's the whole package that's driven the stock market to $4 trillion of gains since the election."

Since the election, the Dow Jones industrial average has surged more than 16 percent, the S&P 500 has gained more than 13 percent, and the Nasdaq composite has risen 18 percent as of Friday's close.”

CNBC also reported on June 27th that consumer confidence rose, defying "expectations".

"Consumer confidence hits 118.9 in June, versus 116 estimate. The Consumer Confidence Index now stands at 118.9, up from its May reading and defying expectations for it to drop."

And, a Market-Watch investor says “the rate of gains are about to pick up”.

Anyone remember how the LameStream Media was reveling how the stock market was nose-diving during the evening that Trump defeated Clinton?

Remember how the "we hate Trump" Atlantic was chortling over this short-lived market dive?

"As election results rolled in, global and futures markets responded to the surprisingly close contest by plummeting, with the Dow dropping nearly 800 points. Follow along here for continuing updates on how the world financial markets are responding to the election of Donald Trump as 45th president of the United States."

And, right on cue, CNN-Money couldn't wait to report this devastating news:

"Investors around the world are reacting with shock to Donald Trump's victory in the U.S. presidential election.

Most global stock markets are dropping, Mexico's currency has tanked and U.S. stocks are poised for a rough open.

Markets hate uncertainty, and many investors believe Trump's unpredictable nature and anti-trade stance could bring global turmoil.

Dow futures were down about 300 points early Wednesday morning, or about 1.5%. At their low point on Tuesday night, Dow futures were down more than 900 points."

And..........

Global markets in tailspin as Trump victory declared
Adam Shell, USA TODAY Published 8:43 p.m. ET Nov. 8, 2016 | Updated 2:43 a.m. ET Nov. 9, 2016

Yet, Forbes Online correctly chronicled the roller-coaster ride just after Trump’s victory with live updates:

NOV 9, 2016 @ 04:04 PM 66,977 12 Stocks to Buy Now ~ Stock Market Slingshots Higher After Trump Victory Sparked Overnight Plunge

Six months later, a FOUR TRILLION DOLLAR GAIN, and the pathetic Mainstream Liberal Media is still chasing Russians.

(Note: The Dow lost 29 points yesterday, (July 20th) and is down 76 points in the early trading today. Anyone care to bet when the Media claims the sky is falling?)

THE RUSSIAN OBSESSION WILL NOT SAVE THE DEMOCRATS IN 2018

In response to a NewsBuster’s article titled “The American Left's Downward Spiral” , your’s truly posted this comment:

“The unabated Russian obsession by the Democrats and their complicit Media will be another major downfall in the 2018 Election cycle.  American voters are quite aware of the obsessed mania of the Democrats, (many who have yet to accept the results of the 2016 Election), and their dreams of removing a sitting President.  

Hillary tried, AND FAILED, the "I'm not Trump" tactic, along with the identity politics in pulling out every card in their deck---race, gender, you name it, the Democrats tried it.  This Trump/Russian Obsession will also FAIL the Democrats as a motivating tool for their leaderless party.

Even the hapless CNN posted a poll the other day, showing the top four concerns of the voting public---health care was #1 at 35%, followed by the economy, unemployment/jobs, and national security/terrorism.

Not found in the polling priorities was a Trump/Russian/Collusion/Obsession which CNN spews 24/7. Much like their search for a missing plane in the Indian Ocean, CNN and the rest of the anti-Trump Media cohorts have over-played their hands---dragging the Democrats along in their frenzied “Russian obsession“---to the chagrin of the American Voters.

Since the advent of the Federalization of Health Care, aka, ObamaCare, the Democrats have lost all national power, the House, the Senate, the White House, Governorships, Statehouses, to the Republican Party.  With their Russian Obsession at the forefront of their platform, the Democrats are destined to lose again.  Deservedly.”

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE---LIBERAL JUSTICE (AGAIN) FAILS TO UNDERSTAND SEPARATION OF POWERS




Once again, a bleeding heart liberal Judge from a U.S. District Court has gone beyond his pay grade, ie, Constitutional authority, to define the parameters of President Trump’s travel ban.

Derrick Kahala Watson, appointed to the bench in 2015 by Barack Obama, is the same judge who instituted a restraining order against Trump’s revised travel ban, before getting unanimously slapped down by the Supreme Court in June. 

Watson, (again ignoring the separation of powers and the powers granted exclusively to the executive branch), has erroneously decided his court alone can define the extent of “bona fide  applicants”, expanding the relationships to include “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.”

Via the Wall Street Journal:  

“Judge Watson said the Trump administration’s ban implementation after the high court ruling tilted the scale too far in its favor and against those travelers with U.S. family connections. He ordered that the ban not apply to “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.”

“Common sense, for instance, dictates that close family members be defined to include grandparents. Indeed, grandparents are the epitome of close family members,” the judge wrote.

Judge Watson also loosened some Trump administration restrictions on what type of U.S. relationships qualify to exempt refugees from the ban. The judge said refugees aren’t subject to the ban if they are covered by a formal admissions agreement between the U.S. government and a refugee resettlement agency.

Lawyer Neal Katyal, who is representing Hawaii in its challenge to the Trump travel ban, on Twitter called the ruling a sweeping victory.”

So the Judge, [Watson], inserts his own "common sense" by expanding the admissions to include not only grandparents, but also basically anyone related to them in defining the exemptions, an argument three conservative supreme court justices have already stated is not the business or right of the courts: 

"Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch dissented on the exemptions. They argued that the court has no business or right interfering with the president’s foreign policy and that the “relationship” standard is so vague that it will spawn thousands of litigations." 

It appears Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch were entirely correct in their dissent---as once again, a lower court judge fails miserably to understand any President's right to set foreign policy standards---Constitutionally granted by our legislature. Hopefully, before Christmas, Watson, (and lawyer J. Noble Daggett-Katyal), will understand how the President's executive power is exclusively protected.

DECLARING INDEPENDENCE---TRUMP KEEPS WINNING, WHILE DEMOCRATS AND MEDIA LOSE


The Democrats and their complicit Media are in a full blown meltdown mode.  With their wholly-contrived Russian/Collusion conspiracy theory falling apart, the search for a new “get Trump” narrative is not only falling on deaf ears, much of the general public is tiring of the Media’s non-stop anti-President tirades.

And, make no mistake, the Mainstream Media has NEVER found themselves in an adversarial position where a President "INDEPENDENTLY" fought back, called them on the carpet, ie, exposed their lies, while shining a bright light on their sick anti-American agenda.

While the Press, (AP, NYTs, Wapo, CNN, et all), publish their retractions, (from the fabricated stories their editors approved), their credibility ratings continue tanking to a point of no return---”we have all become National Enquirer-ers” in the eyes of the public.

Meanwhile, the always meek and spineless Republicans, (and their pathetically feckless messaging apparatus), cowardly sits back, (fearing their own shadows), and does nothing to defend their President or his agenda.  The Democrats and their Media are lying on the canvas of the “political ring”, bloodied, beaten, and down for the count, and the Establishment Republican Party hides in the corner, (ashamed of a probable victorious outcome), while surreptitiously throwing the enemy a lifeline.  Why?  And, to what end?

Never has a Republican President, (other than Reagan to a lesser extent), had to take on his adversaries, (with little or no support from his own party), soundly defeated them to the point of submission, and found only his most ardent supporters still standing proudly in his corner. 

Donald J. Trump could single-handedly win the Super-Bowl and his team-mates, (much of his own party), sitting on the bench would demand the MVP Trophy, when what they deserve is a participation certificate with a declaration---"turn in your unstained uniforms and find another profession that recognizes your glaring limitations".
"The FAKE MEDIA is trying to silence us - but we will not let them. We won & they lost! The dishonest media will NEVER keep us from accomplishing our objectives on behalf of our GREAT AMERICAN PEOPLE!" ~ Donald J. Trump

Our President continues to put AMERICA FIRST. That's why were still winning.

The Departure of Anthony Kennedy---Democrat’s Worst Nightmare




Democrats’ Greatest Fear About to Become Reality

The rumors of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s possible retirement from the bench had been talked about for months.  Now, it’s reached a fever pitch when it was reported at the Washington Examiner that the date for Kennedy’s Staffer Reunion was moved up---by a whole year:  

“Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and his clerks moved up a long-planned reunion event for his staffers by a year, sparking rumors that the 30-year veteran of the high court was contemplating retirement. Should Kennedy step down, it would remove one of the Supreme Court's key swing votes and give President Trump the opportunity to give it a durable conservative majority.”

Ruth Marcus at the Washington Post fears Kennedy’s departure would be “terrifying” and unleash an “Armageddon”. 

“The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago.

So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle between liberal and conservative forces. Kennedy’s retirement would unleash nomination Armageddon, given the feral political environment and the pivotal role he plays on the closely divided court.”  (link)

Nominated by President Ronald Reagan on November 11, 1987 and taking his oath of office in February of ‘88, Kennedy was thought to be a solid conservative choice, yet over the years he became known as the “swing-voter”, far too often voting with the Liberal Justices on key rulings.  If Kennedy does indeed retire after this current session ends, Marcus, (and the Democrat’s) worst fear will be realized.

The Media and the Pundits seem to be pushing for “big fight” to thwart the inevitable, but since the Dems helped to put an end to the filibuster question with Gorsuch’s nomination, all they can do is make noise to their base.

And, if this isn't bad enough for the Democrats, Breyer and Ginsburg may not be far behind.

Why Democrats Lose, and, Will Continue to Lose





Two days after the Democrats suffered defeat in the heavily-invested Georgia-6 race, the talk from the beltway is one of self-reflection and evaluation.  The Democrats have yet to realize their “we aren’t Trump” campaign isn’t resonating with the voters.

The Hollywood left and the New York liberal elites thought they could buy an election in the deep south with their “high-school president” candidate, and once again, the pollsters and the liberal media told their constituents “this one was in the bag”, (I’m talking to YOU Nate Silver).

With the non-stop revolting reaction of Trump defeating Clinton---from the phony Russian investigations, to the rioting in the cities, to the Bernie Sanders nutcase attack/attempted murder of Republicans, to the violent rhetoric, (see Griffin, Shakespeare in the Park)---the American Voters, even the timid moderate Democrats, wants nothing to do with this ugly side of the left.

Democrat Leaders, and their complicit anti-Trump opposition media have pounded the tactics of obstruction and accusations, supplying false/unsourced stories even the non-political junkies are literally laughing at.

To make matters worse, (for Democrats), the 5-0 special election victories, (that have devastated the Left’s long awaited narrative that any victory, [by Democrats], is a referendum on Donald Trump and his agenda), puts the entire party in dire straights when looking ahead to the 2018 Congressional races.  Republicans, (if they have any intelligence), should have a plethora of material---supplied by the vile left---to produce advertising that should decimate almost any Democrat in any “unsafe” or a contested district.

Last night, our President addressed the people of Iowa, (and by extension most of the country), with an optimistic/positive rally calling for a unifying direction, while touting his agenda of tax reform, gutting and replacing O’Care, and building our nation’s infrastructure---ALL JOB-PRODUCING VENTURES.

His emphasis last night was also on protecting this nation, our men and women in blue, and our armed forces who’ve put their lives on the line for all of us.

And what does Trump do at the end? He thanks all of us, THE PEOPLE, for giving him the opportunity to make the country great again, saying: “WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER”  

(a statement you will never hear from the Democrats)
