Americans haven’t been as pleased about the economy as they are today since 2001. In fact, nearly every Republican (97%) and the vast majority of Independents (75%) think so. Even 62% of Democrats have to admit the economy is doing well, according to a new poll released by CNN.

Adding insult to injury, a mere 9% believe the economy is good now but will turn south in 2020. This uptick in optimism seemed to have an effect on next year’s presidential race as President Trump’s head-to-head numbers went up compared to where they were in October. Impeachment wasn’t mentioned, though, and Daily Caller’s Eddie Zipperer lampooned the CNN news anchors’ responses.
Upon learning that Trump is shooting up in the polls, Alisyn Camerota asks, "Do we have any sense of why?"
Gee, I wonder what it could be, Alisyn.

The final part of the report was also good news for the President as 55% of respondents were pleased by passage of the USMCA. Only 13% disapprove of the trade deal that is intended to replace NAFTA. Democrats have tried to take credit for the deal as they inserted some edits to benefit labor unions and subvert intellectual property restrictions, but with the GOP hammering them for passage of the deal for the last year, the Democrats’ narrative isn’t sticking.
Last night’s Democratic debate had multiple candidates claiming the economy isn’t as good as the President says, including frontrunners Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. But that narrative is unlikely to sway voters if the economy continues to do well. This could force whoever the nominee is to take a different approach from the standard campaign messaging.
Invariably, the opposition party candidate attacks the economy under the incumbent, following the advice of Bill Clinton adviser James Carville. In 1992, the strategist famously quipped, “It’s the economy, stupid.” In most election years, there are ways to spin the economic conditions to throw cold water on the incumbent’s claims of fiscal strength. But these poll numbers indicate it may be a fool’s errand to attempt to downplay prosperity.
When the narrative doesn’t work, change it if you can. Democrats will likely stop attacking the economy and focus on attacking President Trump’s character. That’s where he’s perceived as softest and we heard variations of “wrong temperament” being used by candidates more so last night than in previous debates. Even as Sanders and Elizabeth Warren go after the wealthy as their primary targets to build a populist progressive base, it will be hard for them to continue to tell people how badly they’re doing when reality doesn’t match the rhetoric. Biden seems ready to shift. Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Tom Steyer are already there. Andrew Yang has been milder in his attacks, choosing to focus on positive messaging.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Lying Joe Biden said the middle class is getting crushed
Did he forget that he & Obama oversaw the slowest economic recovery in modern history?
✅ unemployment at historic lows
✅ wages growing at fastest pace in decade
✅ millions lifted out of poverty

If the economy continues to soar with a vibrant job market and stellar growth, it’ll be tough for Democrats to resonate. People do not vote against their own prosperity. Millions of Americans are doing better today than they were three years ago.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
