Anti-Trump voters must decide between whats best for them and whats bad for Trump

To those opposed to President Trump, here are your choices: Vote in favor of your own prosperity or vote against President Trump’s legislative allies in Congress.

As pundit Hugh Hewitt noted, it may be better for Democrats and left-leaning Independents to keep their own best interests in mind this election and vote for Republicans.

“Seventy four percent of people think their own personal economics are good. That is a remarkable thing,” Hewitt said. “Do you vote to keep the economy humming or do you vote against President Trump?”

It would certainly put a damper on President Trump’s agenda if Republicans lose control of the House, Senate, or both. That agenda, railed on by Democratic candidates, has resulted in the best jobs numbers we’ve seen since man first walked on the moon. Wages are increasing, the economy is humming, and personal prosperity is becoming a reality for millions of Americans who were left desolate by eight years under President Obama.

Yes, many hate President Trump. But among those who do, there are many who have a hard time reconciling their distaste for the man with the personal success his policies have brought them.

As hard as it will be for many of these people, it may make more sense for them to vote to keep Republicans in charge of the House and Senate. They can go after President Trump directly in 2020, but until then they should hold their nose and keep the momentum going for the economy now.

Democratic repercussions

One of mainstream media’s favorite narratives right now is that the economy won’t be greatly affected if Democrats take control of the House or Senate. This is a bald faced lie. It’s not even really debatable as the evidence is crystal clear the nation’s economic success is a direct result of legislation put forth by Republicans on Capitol Hill and signed by the President.

If Democrats take control of the House, Senate, or both, the President’s agenda will be stalled. There is only so much he can do with a pen. If Democrats control the agenda on Capitol Hill, the President can do nothing to keep the economy rolling forward. He can only sign executive orders or legislation. Executive orders cannot drive the economy. With Democrats in control of either chamber of Congress, legislation will dry up.

Deadlock means the end of our economic progress, period.

We know more about what will happen after the election than what will happen with the election itself. Despite analysts’ predictions, it comes down to voters. Don’t listen to polls or pundits. Just vote.

U.S. poverty falls to lowest level since 2007 and media’s response is downright comical

US poverty falls to lowest level since 2007 and medias response is downright comical

Did you hear that the poverty level fell below where it was prior to the economic collapse twelve years ago? Probably not, because legacy media doesn’t want you to hear about that. They don’t want you to realize the economy is in better shape than it’s been in decades. They don’t want you to look at your paycheck and bank account and realize you’re doing better now than you’ve done in a long time, perhaps ever.

They don’t want you to know this because if you realize you’re doing better, you’re more likely to acknowledge much of this is due to President Trump’s first term in the White House. If you reach the conclusion that your personal prosperity and the prosperity of those around you is better than it was before, you will be more inclined to vote for President Trump and other Republicans in the 2020 election. The media and their cronies in the Democratic Party can’t have that, so they bury stories like these.

But even when they report it, they do so in a way that is so biased, so hilariously tilted, one might read a story about how poverty is now low and come out of it thinking the economy is tanking as we speak. That’s how radically unhinged the reports have been, taking reality and attempting to morph it into their own version that paints a much grimmer picture.

This article from NPR starts off basically saying things are bad even though they’re good. It’s pure doublethink as part of their (attempted) Orwellian control over the collective consciousness of this nation.

U.S. Census Bureau Reports Poverty Rate Down, But Millions Still Poor

The U.S. poverty rate declined slightly last year, but finally fell below the 2007 level, right before the Great Recession pushed millions of Americans out of work and into financial distress.

The improving economy was a key factor in the decline. The U.S. Census Bureau noted in its annual report on income and poverty that there were 2.3 million more full-time, year-round workers last year and that median earnings for all such workers rose by more than three percent.

Amid these positive signs, the bureau reported separately that the number of people in the U.S. who did not have health insurance rose from 25.6 million people in 2017 to 27.5 million in 2018. That included 4.3 million children. Health advocacy groups called the increase extremely troubling and blamed declines in Medicaid coverage, especially for Hispanic children and children under the age of six.

Even when reporting great news for Americans, mainstream media does everything in its power to convince people it’s all just awful. “You’re not really prospering,” they’ll tell you. They torture the numbers until they say what they want them to say.

California, the birthplace of the gig economy, passes bill to kill it

California the birthplace of the gig economy passes bill to kill it

There was a dream that sparked the formation of companies like Uber, Lyft, GrubHub, and other early adopters of the “gig economy.” The dream was simple and elegant: Connect consumers with people willing to serve. Apps were created. Lifestyles were adjusted. The convergence of digital and mobile technologies had given birth to a way of doing business that hadn’t been possible before.

Today, California legislature moved to taint the basic premise of the gig economy by taking the “gig” out of the mix. They moved to force companies like Uber to accept those taking advantage of their service from the provider end as employees.

Bill to limit gig economy now heads to Gov. Newsom’s desk

California lawmakers have sent the governor a bill that would give new wage and benefit protections to workers at so-called gig economy companies such as Uber and Lyft.

The 56-15 Assembly vote Wednesday marked a victory for labor unions and a defeat for tech companies that vehemently oppose the proposal.

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has already said he supports it.

This flies in the face of why and how the gig economy was built in the first place. It treats gig workers as victims, as if they were forced to embrace the lifestyle and somehow need protections like indentured servants. And while many of these workers are celebrating the move, many will very likely find out the repercussions were not what they were promised by Democratic lawmakers.

There is no way companies like Lyft and GrubHub can continue to do business the way they’re currently doing it, nor at the costs they currently offer, thanks to this asinine legislation. It will force artificial raises in “wages” that were agreed upon by the workers in the first place. This will drive up prices to consumers, which will limit their usage. As fewer people call for an Uber, drivers will find their win was a great big loser for them.

But it’s a win-win for labor unions. It’s a win-win for Democrats. It’s a win-win for everyone other than anyone who uses the services or is employed by them.

In other words, the vast majority of Californians will lose as a result of this labor union victory.

This flies in the face of what the gig economy means to America. By inserting more government control, there will be repercussions felt by the companies, their users, and the workers who were supposed to benefit from this move.

Record-low black unemployment cheered by black activists

Record-low black unemployment cheered by black activists

Project 21 members credit Trump economic policies for increased minority opportunity.

Washington, D.C. – Black unemployment and the black-white employment gap have fallen to the lowest levels ever recorded, and members of the Project 21 black leadership network are cheering the economic policies of the Trump Administration for ushering in historic levels of opportunity and equality for black Americans.

“Love him or hate him, this is an incredible economic accomplishment for the President and a tremendous benefit for American blacks,” said Project 21 member Derryck Green.

Along with a reported third straight month of 3.7 percent overall unemployment, the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) August jobs report noted that the overall black unemployment rate fell half-a-percent to 5.5 percent. This is the lowest black unemployment rate ever recorded. BLS began reporting employment statistics by race in 1972. And with overall white unemployment at 3.4 percent, it is also the smallest reported gap between the races ever in terms of joblessness. Until recently, the racial employment disparity between blacks and whites has generally held to a 2-1 margin.

“Once again, unemployment among blacks has reached a record low, ” remarked Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper. “Before his first term is over, President Trump’s high-growth/low-tax/limited regulatory policies will have set more high employment records than Obama’s slow-growth/high-tax/high regulatory policies could in eight years.”

In addition to black Americans, drops in unemployment have also been seen among Hispanics, Asian-Americans and other groups.

“A strong U.S. labor market and flourishing industries have contributed to unemployment nationwide being near a 50-year low. Many who have previously been left out of the workforce – including women, minorities and workers with disabilities – have all seen gains during the Trump Administration,” said Project 21 member Derrick Hollie. “And the unemployment rate for black Americans dropped to a record low of 5.5 percent in August. It narrowed to being 1.62 times the white unemployment rate. This is the smallest gap ever. Most economists use gross domestic product (GDP) and unemployment to gauge how well our country is doing. So all this shows America is doing okay right now.”

“Black unemployment hitting a recorded all-time low is bad news for those who take black political support for granted,” noted Project 21 member Leo Fuller. “For too long, many ethnic communities have largely been afraid to leave the liberal orthodoxy because they were told it was necessary for the government to provide for them. Liberals, to keep and expand their power, must now tell blacks, Hispanics and others that they have to work against their own pocketbooks.”
