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.

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.

I don’t want to say that extending unemployment payments keeps people from looking for a job, but…

This was posted on a local community Facebook page today (name omitted to protect the guilty):

“Hi, I’m looking for a receptionist job (preferably in a medical environment). Unemployment coming to an end and looking to start a job asap.”

Now what does that post imply to you? “Unemployment coming to an end” and “looking to start a job asap.”

Because to me it says, “I wasn’t looking for a job while Dear Leader was sending me checks.”

Which tells you all you need to know about why extending unemployment payments is a Bad Idea.

Robots don’t care if you voted to raise the minimum wage

Ergo, your entry-level minimum wage job just went “poof.” Because a robot can do it better, and a robot doesn’t pretend it’s worth more than the employer paid for it.

McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) is trying to make fast food even faster. The Financial Times reports that the worlds’ largest fast food chain plans to replace many of the cashiers at its 7,000 European restaurants with touch screen terminals that allow customers to order and pay electronically.

The move at McDonald’s is similar to what many consumers experience in supermarkets, retailers and gasoline stations that have opted for self-checkout to save on labor costs.

Way to go morons. You made labor more expensive, now you get to find out what happens when employers aren’t willing to pay you that much.

That guy standing across from the unemployment office laughing at you? Yeah, that’s me.

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.

Obama’s energy jobs double standard

So-called “green jobs” count 17 times. Even if the company goes tits up and takes the taxpayers “green” with it.

But actual Real Jobs in the here and now? They don’t count if they’re associated with Keystone XL.

President Obama doubled down Tuesday on his claim that the Keystone XL oil pipeline would create just a handful of jobs, despite being hammered by Republicans and fact-checkers alike for the claim.

“They keep on talking about this — an oil pipeline coming down from Canada that’s estimated to create about 50 permanent jobs. That’s not a jobs plan,” Obama said.

In citing the 50-jobs number, though, the president was using the smallest possible number attached to the pipeline project. The estimate he used likely refers to a State Department finding that — after the pipeline is built — it would take roughly 50 people to maintain it.

But the comment ignores the rest of the State Department report that estimates the project would create nearly 4,000 annual construction jobs — and potentially “support” an annual 42,000 jobs.

A Washington Post fact-check column on Tuesday questioned why the administration would ignore its own numbers.

Because ignoring them advances the anti-energy, anti-people, anti-American agenda espoused by the radical econuts, that’s why.

Cheap fossil fuels are bad.

Expensive “green” energy is good.

And if real people have to freeze in the dark? That’s just the price America has to pay to save Mother Gaia.

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!
