Under Trump's economy Hispanics are flourishing

In Barack Obama’s two terms as President, Hispanic labor participation dropped each of his eight years. His poor economic policies and job-killing regulations made it difficult for everyone, but the Hispanic and African-American communities were hit the hardest.

The last 2.5 years under President Trump have shown a tremendous rebound for Hispanics. Last month, the jobless rate for Latinos dropped to 4.2%, the lowest it has ever been in the history of our nation. This is why it’s quite embarrassing for many Democrats in areas of high Hispanic population to denounce the President’s efforts. They’re not only looking like fools, but in some cases they’re looking like outright liars.

Representative Joaquin Castro said last month, “Wall Street doing well does not mean that a vast majority of Latino families are doing well.”

This may be true in the past, but in the current economy Latino families are doing very well. The argument made by many Democrats is that the jobs reports are not showing how poorly people are really doing because it relies on volume. Their claim is that the only jobs being created are low-paying jobs that do not benefit anyone, especially Hispanics. But as Alfredo Ortiz noted last month in The Hill, the numbers are generally very strong for Hispanics in both volume and wages.

Contrary to Democrats claiming this is a minimum wage economy, the jobs being created are good ones. Full time jobs continue to increase at the expense of unwanted part time ones. Hispanic household income is the highest it has ever been in the United States and growing about twice as fast as the national average. Wage growth among retail and low income workers, who are disproportionately Hispanic, has been above average under the leadership of Trump. Among the 7.5 million unfilled jobs across the nation, millions pay strong middle class wages of $50,000 or more.

Where Hispanics have especially flourished is in entrepreneurship. A recent report found entrepreneurship is at its highest level in recorded history, and it is being driven by Hispanics who are nearly one-third more likely to start a business than they were in 2013 and two-thirds more likely to start a business than whites today. A recent survey found the average revenue of businesses owned by Latinos increased by 27 percent last year thanks to tax cuts. Another recent report found nearly 90 percent of Hispanic entrepreneurs plan to expand their business this year versus two-thirds for other demographics. More than 50 percent of Hispanic entrepreneurs plan to hire this year versus 25 percent for everyone else.

Democrats are stuck with trying to use propaganda and invoking racism to justify keeping the Hispanic vote in their corner. But Hispanics, like most Americans, are driven by what is best for them and their families. They might not like the GOP based on past indoctrination into the “Republicans are racists” mindset, but they’re quickly realizing the policies and economic principles put in place by the Republicans when they had control of the House of Representatives and the President have benefited them and their families greatly.

If the presidential election comes down to the economy, as it usually does, then 2020 should be a landslide for the President.

The numbers don’t lie. Jobs are way up and Hispanics are making the greatest gains as a result. But Democrats say President Trump is a racist. Looking at jobs reports show he must be the worst racist ever.

After indignant virtue signaling costs billions, Gillette quietly ‘shifts’ away from social justice

After indignant virtue signaling costs billions Gillette quietly shifts away from social justice

Social justice backfired for Gillette. Despite innumerable complaints and an exodus of customers, the razor maker remained fervently proud of their ad campaigns attacking “toxic masculinity” to the point that CEO and president Gary Coombe said it was a “price worth paying.” They’re standing by their ads and are claiming they helped them reach a younger millennial audience, increase brand awareness, and put forward the type of company message they want portrayed.

If losing $8 billion was worth the message, they’re stronger activists than most.

“P&G reported a net loss of about $5.24 billion, or $2.12 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, due to an $8 billion non-cash writedown of Gillette. For the same period last year,” Reuters reported, “P&G’s net income was $1.89 billion, or 72 cents per share.”

Despite the massive loss over the controversial ads. they claim to have no regrets. This claims were made three weeks ago and delivered with bluster in multiple interviews for damage control. This week brought a different tone as they’re now “shifting the spotlight from social issues to local heroes.”

The new campaigns have already launched in Australia with a slow rollout in the United States expected next month. Here’s the local Australian hero they’re focusing on. Needless to say, he’s not representing a social justice cause, nor is he worried about exuding toxic masculinity.

This is an unambiguous attempt to escape the controversial corner they painted themselves into that cost them billions, but don’t let progressive media know because they’re certain the social justice campaign was wonderful. They’re so certain about this that they’re blaming the loss on men suddenly loving beards. Seriously.

Companies like Gillette are learning being “woke” makes you broke. That’s how business works; alienating half of your customers for the sake of politics is never a good move. Stick to business. Leave social justice to the basement warriors.

Was the Inca Empire a successful example of socialism?

Was the Inca Empire a successful example of socialism

As socialists pivot from one failed example of socialism to the next failed example of socialism to the welfare state that decries claims of socialism, perhaps we should prepare ourselves for when the socialist reach the bottom of the barrel with examples of the collective ideology’s past successes. And before you say, “well that’s silly, there’s no way a pre-French enlightenment civilization could have practiced a successful form a socialism, sufficient enough to use as an example by the left” consider the fact that a French academic by the name of Louis Boudan penned an extensive treatise entitled “A Socialist Empire: The Incas of Peru” in 1962.

Now, this work does not appear to be an endorsement of communism, though the author seems to have a vested interest in the using the “no true Scotsman” fallacy given that this was written post World War 2 and in the Cold War with regards to true socialism. However, the very title, provocatively named, is certainly a sign that the political Left in contemporary times could refer to the Inca as a successful example of socialism, that only fell by the technologically advantaged Spaniards. But Louis Boudan is not the only one who has made this comparison, leaving us wondering why the Left has not seized on the Inca who seem to have had a more successful run than any contemporary Marxist regime. The likeliest reason that that Inca are not used as an example of successful socialism is likely that the proponents of socialism, to be blunt, are not historically informed. Still, this is a foreseeable argument in the imminent future and we best know what we are talking about when it inevitably comes because when the Left popularizes an example of alleged socialism practiced by non-whites they will pounce, but until then we await a Vox video.

The Inca Empire could prove to be the only example of socialism that did not self collapse, other than the Catalonia socialism which lasted only three years. But of course, all of this is conditional on the premise of whether or not the Inca Empire was truly socialist country. Perhaps it would be best to grant the Left that premise. Even if the Inca were a socialist empire, the ensuing result was a constant need for war, which is a commonality with the Stalinist ideology. Kings and Generals does a good job breaking down the Inca society for the laymen to understand. Key points discussed in the video are:

  • The Inca were highly adapted to their living environment with regards to agriculture, construction, and irrigation
  • The Inca had what appears to be a welfare state
  • The Inca worshiped their dead
  • The “corporations” of dead bodies accumulated disproportionate amount of wealth
  • The wealth belonging to the dead bodies necessitated the Emperors accumulating wealth of their own through war. This cycle repeats.

As you can see, there were multiple flaws in the Inca society that had a trajectory of collapse because of the pyramid scheme the system creates for its ruling class. The inevitable demise was expedited by the Spaniards. But going back to the foundational premise as to whether the Inca were socialist or not, the contrasts are enough to fail a purity test; had there been an organic collapse, the modern socialist would deny this as true socialism. It’s a never ending fallacy, though the dead corporate estates of the Inca goes against everything socialist preach. However, as human history has shown, socialism has always led to the personal enrichment of those in the innermost circles of power. Socialist or not? You decide, but be prepared to argue that the Inca were not a successful example of socialism.

Steve Hilton: While Trump haters pray for a recession, the real economy is booming

Steve Hilton While Trump haters pray for a recession the real economy is booming

Americans believe in the Trump economy. It’s been helping them get jobs if they’re unemployed and better jobs if they were underemployed. It has raised wages, reduced taxes, and increased consumer spending to all-time highs. Even if you’re like many Americans who do not care about the stock market, Wall Street’s effects on Main Street are felt.

But if you listen to mainstream media, you’re likely hearing a different story. The fearmongers are actively attempting to crash the economy in hopes of using a recession against the President when the 2020 election rolls around. It’s disgusting when consider millions of Americans would be hurt by such a move, but the people pressing this false narrative are the same people who will be able to easily survive it. If their families relied on the prosperity the Trump economy is allowing, perhaps they’d think twice.

As Fox News host Steve Hilton pointed out, reality is not matching the narrative being pushed by the left. The more people are aware that recession talks are fake, the less likely they’ll become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
