"Nearly one million more blacks and two million more Hispanics are employed than when Barrack 0bama left office, and minorities account for more than half of all new jobs created during the Trump Presidency. Unemployment among black women has hovered near 5% for the last six months, the lowest since 1972.” The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board, A Tale of Two Economies. @IngrahamAngle
-- President Donald J. Trump, 7:39 AM - Jul 11, 2019
Robert Johnson, B.E.T. [Black Entertainment Television]:
“I give the President a lot of credit for moving the Economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large number of Americans. I think the Tax Cuts clearly helped stimulate the Economy. Overall, if you look at the U.S. Economy, and you look at the number of people who are no longer looking for jobs but who are now seeing the opportunity for job growth, you’ve got to give the President an A Plus for that.”
Thank you Robert, one of our great business leaders!

Epstein as Trump's revenge? His attack on the treasonous scum in intelligence "community" ? ( that phrase alone is a tell on conspiracy theories being real )
I don't know. But I can say what I firmly believe. The rank & file troops at the FBI & CIA are hard working patriots who love their country. The leaders, political appointees, are full of scum who deserve to be shot, or imprisoned.
State is less deserving of that consideration, while there are hard working patriots there, it's been a bunch of hard working communist agents since WW2, and it probably would take a total purge to clean it up.
Education might as well be paid by Putin, and I am even less respectful of Energy and Interior.
Then again, I'm a cynic, and have a functional memory.
I saw our President speaking to the press before boarding Marine One the other day, and he talked about this at length.
I paraphrase, but..."we have begun using existing databases to determine illegal immigrant population numbers, and we think this method will actually be MORE ACCURATE (emphasis mine) than a census question anyway".
And yes, it will absolutely impact the Left's number of seats.
President Trump, we want to say Thank you for being the best President ever. Thank you for being our voice and Thank you for paving the way for all Americans to have an opportunity at obtaining the American Dream. We Love you so much more. God Bless You.
I want welcome everyone to the White House. We are very excited to be hosting our third annual Made in America Showcase. It’s all about “Made in America.” (Applause.) We just started this, and this is my third already. And I just went around and saw these incredible companies that make everything from the THAAD missiles to beautiful boats.
We’re here today to celebrate and support the most incredible products in the world. And this is just a very representative sampling, because we’re making more product here than we ever have.
Joining us today are manufacturers from all 50 states. And they are terrific talents, terrific craftsmen, terrific businesspeople. We have hats from Wyoming, sandals from Florida, tabasco from Louisiana, Airstream trailers — the Airstream is a great trailer; I’ve seen it for many years, and they’re doing better than ever — from Ohio, and custom-built motorcycles from the great state of Indiana.
We also have represented, and we have a lot of folks here from Litespeed Bikes, from Chattanooga, Tennessee. As a result of moving certain of its operations back to the United States — I love to hear this, because that’s what I like: when they move back. We don’t have to make product in other countries. Its parent company has experienced a 70 percent — and that just happened. They just announced 70 percent growth over the last two years. So they moved their operations back, and they’re 70 percent up in growth. So I want to congratulate you, Litespeed. And I want to congratulate everybody. That’s fantastic.
[W]hen I took office, I was told by the previous administration that manufacturing jobs would be disappearing. There was no way. They said you’d need a miracle. Right? You’d need a miracle. Well, we have a miracle because we’re up 600,000 manufacturing jobs since the election. So it’s been an extraordinary resurgence of American manufacturing. ["BFMW" - FB]
We’ve added more than 6 million jobs since I was elected, including over 1 million jobs in manufacturing, engineering and construction. As I said, 600,000 jobs in pure manufacturing, and that number is going to go substantially higher.
Last year, we saw the biggest increase in manufacturing jobs in more than 20 years. Under my administration, manufacturing’s share of total job gains is the largest it’s been by any President in over one half a century. And don’t forget, in the old days, they manufactured, so I’m competing against some pretty tough statistics, and yet it’s over 50 years. Unemployment has also reached the lowest rate in our country in over 51 years.
And many groups — I have to say, African American unemployment — if you look at African American, Asian American, Hispanic American unemployment, it’s the lowest it’s ever been in the history of our country. Women’s unemployment — the lowest it’s ever been in over 70 years. And soon we’re going to have the all-time record for women’s unemployment.
And today, American manufacturers are contributing $250 billion — think of that — $250 billion more to our economy than they contributed before this great election that took place in 2016.
We’re heeding the wisdom — and you people know because many of you are indeed manufacturers; in your own way, manufacturers with great talent — we’re heeding the wisdom of our Founding Fathers by restoring our economic independence and reawakening our industrial might. And that’s what’s happened. Whether it’s jobs or making something, that’s exactly what happened.
And for our farmers, we’ve taken in tens of billions of dollars in tariffs from China. But China stopped dealing with our farmers, so I asked our great Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, “What kind of number are you talking about? What have they left?” He said, “Sixteen billion dollars, sir, taken off the table.” I said, “That’s okay.” We’ve taken in much, much more — many times that — in tariffs. So I’m going to give the farmers — we’re going to help them out because they are great patriots. We’re going to give them $16 billion. And we just did. Been approved. Been everything. And I approved it. (Applause.)
So our farmers didn’t lose anything by the fact that China targeted our farmers. They targeted the farmers. They said, “You know, President Trump did great with the farmers. The farmers love him and he loves them, so we’ll hurt the farmers.” Well, the farmers are patriots. I never — I hadn’t had one farmer say, “Please make a fast deal, sir. Please make a fast deal.” The biggest beneficiary will be the farmers.
But the $16 billion that wasn’t spent, we’re putting back into the farm and AG system. And the farmers are thrilled, I must tell you that.
We unleashed an American energy revolution. And it is indeed a revolution. Nobody thought it would be possible. We’re now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas on the planet Earth. Not even close.
We passed massive tax cuts so that American companies can beat their foreign competition. Now, you have a tremendous advantage now because you had an impossible disadvantage before and now we’ve given you, with what we’ve done, a tremendous advantage. And we did it to keep jobs where they belong, right here in the United States of America.
As a result, almost 1400 companies have announced that they’re bringing their jobs back to the United States from overseas. And that’s just last year. Think of that — 1400 companies bringing jobs back. Who would think that’s even possible? But now it’s the incentive. They want to be in the United States.
Today, I’m pleased to announce that we will begin our Buy American requirements, but even stronger. Currently, a product can be 50 percent foreign, and it still counts as American-made. Figure that one out. In just a few moments, I will sign an executive order that will — that will eventually raise these standards up to 75 percent and above so that domestic goods will have to have 75 percent American, and 95 percent for things such as iron and steel. It’s going to be 95 percent. We have great mines. We produce great ore, great steel, great aluminum, great everything. But we weren’t using them. Most of them were closed. And in some cases, they blame the environmentalists. Most of them were closed. They’re not closed anymore, or they won’t be closed very long.
The philosophy of my administration is simple: If we can build it, grow it, or make it in the United States, we will.
President Trump Hosts Cabinet Meeting – With Media Review – Video and Transcript CTH - July 16, 2019
This is one of my favorite changes in executive governance since a ‘People’s President’ won the 2016 election. President Trump is the FIRST U.S. President to allow the American people to see the workings of an administrative cabinet. President Trump has done this so frequently people have stopped recognizing the incredible level of transparency.
President Trump uses these cabinet meetings to inform the electorate what is happening, and also [to] work around the manipulative presentations by DC media.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Our Cabinet meeting. And we’ll start with a prayer, please. Rick Perry.
SECRETARY PERRY: Yes, sir. Mr. President, thank you. Just as a — to put this all in perspective: On the 4th of July, I had a prayer that came true, which is a good thing — to pray and for the good Lord to agree that your prayer is a good one.
So Griffin James Perry came into the world on the 4th of July, at about 8:10 in the morning. So I have a grandson.
THE PRESIDENT: Good.
SECRETARY PERRY: And we had prayed about that for many years. And I think the reminder for all of us is that prayer is an incredible and powerful thing. It’s a great tonic. And as we interact with each other, to keep all of us — our friends, our families, this country — in our prayers.
Every Wednesday morning, there’s a Cabinet member Bible study, and it’s been one of the great privileges for me, in this administration, to pray with the Cabinet members. So this is an extension of that.
So if you would bow your heads and join with me in asking the Lord to continue to bless this country:
Father, thank you for this table of men and women, of individuals who selflessly serve this country. And, Lord, we ask you to continue to give them courage, to give them wisdom, to be with this President as he deals with the challenges of the day; to continue to comfort him in the knowledge that you are in charge and in control.
We thank you for your blessings both in the personal way and the larger issues of this world that we live in, that we’ve been given the privilege to serve. We ask you to continue to keep our young men and women who defend our freedom safe and to bring them home soon.
And, Father, we ask you again to keep this President safe and to give him wisdom.
Republican support for Trump rises after racially charged tweets: Reuters/Ipsos poll Glad to see this is solidifying Republican support for Trump. It really pisses me off though that the keep up with phrases like "racially charged". Trump's statement had nothing to do with race. If the racist bitch at the receiving end of his comments wishes to see it as racism, that's her problem. It sounds like projection to me though. At least if you read all the way to the end of the article, you will see recognition that Trump's comments are only taken as racist if you wish to do so. Running the headline this way is baiting the hatred though. Reuters showing their colors again. MAGA!
Running the headline this way is baiting the hatred though.
Yes, it certainly is.
Very much by design.
Many (most?) folks won't take the time to read the article, because the headline tells them everything they need to know: President Trump is a racist, and so are Republicans who support him.
Those are both bald-faced lies, but that doesn't matter, not when you own the media.
If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth.
The Nazi Germany propaganda minister who is attributed with making the above statements was quite right, of course, but only if you own the mouthpiece.
Which he did.
And which [they] still do.
Remember in the run-up to the 2016 election, after DJT had won the Republican nomination, how the left went into full afterburner, riling up their base and fomenting hate and violence across the nation (directed, in large part, against law enforcement officers)?
The same thing is happening all over again.
There's anarchy afoot, but in spite of the lies from the left, it's the left, not the right, fomenting the hate and violence.
It always is, despite all the feigned indignation on display in the House last evening.
The political left are traitors all, in my opinion.
They're also desperate and afraid.
Rightly so, based on my read of the political tea leaves.
Before it gets lost in the proverbial ether, here's the tweet from President Trump that set the left's hair on fire (in a highly-organized, extremely coordinated, totally non-organic fashion). See if you can spot the racism:
