500 Days of Winning, here are 2 lists of President Trump’s accomplishments

You won’t find the media telling you any good news about President Trump (or America), so the White House put out their own list of the Trump administration’s major accomplishments. Since CNN is currently camped outside a strip club in Biloxi, Mississippi waiting for Stormy Daniels to weigh in on Trump’s impending impeachment, and Pravda On The Hudson is digging through Robert Mueller’s trash in the hopes of finding a smoking memo, I’ll help you guys out and summarize the list.

First up, massive tax cuts! What’s not to like about that? (Nancy Pelosi, please don’t answer.)

Then we see zillions of federal regulations are being slashed! The Trump Doctrine: They’re from the government and they’re here to leave you alone.

President Trump is well on the way to rebuilding our military, including new aircraft carriers and increased missile defense.

President Trump is taking care of our veterans, installing Real Accountability at the heretofore dysfunctional VA. Is it perfect yet? Nope. But there’s a path, and a plan, and for the first time in a very long time, hope.

On his signature issue — enforcing immigration laws — President Trump is delivering the goods. The DoJ is cracking down on sanctuary cities, prototypes of The Wall are going up on our southern border, deportations are up and illegal entries are down. And MS13 is feeling the heat with law enforcement cracking down on them daily.

The federal judiciary is rapidly reshaping into a bastion of constitutional conservativism, not just at SCOTUS with Neil Gorsuch but at the Appellate and District levels too. I gotta let Mitch McConnell share some of the credit for this, he took Harry Reid’s nuking of Senate precedent and ran with it. Judicial confirmations in Trump’s first year exceeded that of any other president ever.

Is the economy booming, or what? Unemployment is at an all-time low. Consumer confidence is at a 17 year high, and workers are taking home more money in their paychecks.

And last, but not least, the EPA put out their own list of achievements, highlighting their role in making America great again. We’re out of the ridiculous Paris Climate Accords. The inaptly named Obama-era “Clean Power Plan” is gone, and the puddles in your driveway are no longer regulated as “Waters of the United States.” Fracking is booming and the US is now a net exporter of oil and natural gas. Left-wing zealots are no longer setting environmental policy and there are no more “sue and settle” slush funds greasing their sleazy palms. The Keystone XL pipeline is humming, unattainable auto mpg standards are rolled back, and scientists set policy instead of “activists.”

All in all it’s been an excellent start for President Trump. And no, I’m still not tired of winning.

Obamanomics: Price of ground beef hit another record high in February

No, you’re not imagining it. You can’t afford to eat beef.

The average price of a pound of ground beef climbed to another record high in February, hitting $4.238 per pound, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

It first broke the $4 barrier back in August 2014, and it’s been climbing ever since.

Because cows cause Global Warming. And the price of beef must necessarily skyrocket. Thanks Obama!

Reports that sales of Hamburger Helper are also up could not be confirmed at press time. But it’s a pretty safe bet.

Toyota bails on the Peoples Republic of California

Because there’s freedom in Texas.

North American Chief Executive Jim Lentz is expected to brief employees Monday, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly. Toyota declined to detail its plans. About 5,300 people work at Toyota’s Torrance complex. It is unclear how many workers will be asked to move to Texas. The move is expected to take several years.

Toyota has long been a Southern California fixture. Its first U.S. office opened in a closed Rambler dealership in Hollywood in 1957. The site is now a Toyota dealership. In 1958, its first year of sales, Toyota sold just 288 vehicles — 287 Toyopet Crown sedans and one Land Cruiser. Last year, Toyota sold more than 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S.

The U.S. branch picked Los Angeles for its first headquarters because of proximity to the port complex — where it imported cars — and easy airline access to Tokyo. As Toyota grew, it opened its national sales and marketing headquarters in Torrance in 1982. The complex, built where its parts distribution warehouse was once located, now has 2 million square feet of office space. […]

Onerous taxation and soul-crushing regulations aren’t good for business.

California is a liberal paradise, run by Democrats.

Texas is a conservative success story, run by Republicans.

It’s pretty easy to see which state is winning.

The push for re-extending unemployment benefits is an admission Obamanomics is a failure

Brit Hume:

The administration’s appeal for a further extension of unemployment benefits may succeed in putting Congressional Republicans in a tight spot if they resist. In that sense, it may be a shrewd political move, yet embedded in it is an extraordinary acknowledgment of failure by the president and his party.

We’re now four and a half years into an economic recovery that Democrats keep telling us is getting better all the time, yet, the job market remains so weak, the jobless rate so high that the president considers it an emergency. Indeed, that is the official name of these extended benefits, emergency unemployment compensation. Normally, unemployment payments run out after 26 weeks, but that was extended five years ago to 99 weeks and has been repeatedly extended since.

Now though, it’s running out for an estimated 1.3 million people. No one is arguing that these benefits should go on forever, and the White House notes it is only asking for another three more months at a cost of about $6 billion. So, will that be the end of it? Will the emergency at last be over? All Obama advisor, Gene Sperling, would say today is that three months would provide time to discuss what to do for the rest of the year.

Upon taking office, the president and the party set two big goals. One was to revive the economy, the other to reform health care. The Obamacare mess tells us where we are on one, the call for further unemployment payments tells us where we are on the other.

And of course the Real Problem is, the Obots are still blaming George W. Bush. Because it’s incomprehensible to them that their Unicorn Healer of a president could possibly have failed. But it occurs to me that if Obama is indeed such a God-King, how could a blundering bozo who hasn’t been in office for more than 5 years still be flummoxing his omnipotence?

US consumer confidence dips as jobs outlook dims

I forget, is this the Hope or the Change?

Americans’ confidence in the economy fell slightly in September from August, as many became less optimistic about hiring and pay increases over the next six months.

The Conference Board, a New York-based private research group, says its consumer confidence index dropped to 79.7 in September. That’s down from August’s reading of 81.8.

At least they didn’t say “unexpectedly.” Because by now we all know what to expect while Obama is still president.

Recovery Summer! Unemployment edges back up, again

Apparently the fifth time isn’t a charm either. Another “Recovery Summer” goes bust.

The U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs in May, a gain that shows employers are hiring at a still-modest but steady pace.

The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate rose to 7.6 percent from 7.5 percent in April.

The government revised the job figures for the previous two months. April’s gains were lowered to 149,000 from 165,000. March’s figure was increased slightly to 142,000 from 138,000. The net loss was 12,000 jobs.

Employers have added an average of 155,000 jobs in past three months, below the average of 237,000 created from November through February.

Everything is “below average” but it’s still good news. Why? Because that’s the Official Spin, that’s why!
