Trumponomics Is Working

The media continue to be in denial, and the Left gets furious if you even hint at this, but Trumponomics is working. The fact is “what happened” (ironically, the title of Hillary’s book) after the election of Donald Trump is that American businesses and job creators breathed a huge sigh of relief.

The media continue to be in denial, and the Left gets furious if you even hint at this, but Trumponomics is working. The fact is “what happened” (ironically, the title of Hillary’s book) after the election of Donald Trump is that American businesses and job creators breathed a huge sigh of relief.

They no longer got up every day worrying, as they had for the past eight years, “What is my government going to do to me today?”

Donald Trump’s election has supercharged the stock market. It has American businesses growing again. Friday’s figures show that 261,000 new jobs were created in October and the unemployment rate fell to 4.1% — its lowest level since 2000.

Barack Obama could have experienced this kind of growth. He only would have had to jettison his socialist mindset and the economy would have taken off under his administration.

So the next time your “NeverTrumper” friends ask what Donald Trump has accomplished, here’s the answer:

  • He beat Hillary Clinton.

  • He has appointed Neil Gorsuch and other judges like him to the courts.

  • He has unleashed America’s economic strength, sending the stock market soaring and the unemployment rate to its lowest level in 17 years.

  • He has restored America’s alliance with Israel, driven ISIS from Mosul and Raqqa and ended Barack Obama’s appeasement of Iran and North Korea.

Worshipping Death

A death-worshiping jihadist attacked a New York City school bus with children with Down syndrome on board. We can all agree that trying to kill children with special needs is an evil thing, right?

Sadly, our abortion culture does that every single day. It is only because that abortion regime is not 100% effective that there were any children with Down syndrome on that bus.

If the abortion industry accomplished what it wanted, none of those children would have been born. So the jihadist is not the only death worshiper.

Just how extreme is the pro-abortion movement in America? Incredibly, Planned Parenthood ran a social media campaign this week telling black women that they are “safer” aborting their babies than delivering them. As many pro-life activists noted, it certainly is not “safer” for the unborn baby!

And think about the irony here: Liberals routinely accuse conservatives of being racists for wanting to control our borders, claiming we hate people of color and don’t want any more of them. Isn’t this Planned Parenthood campaign encouraging fewer black babies racist to its core?

Another Day, Another Clinton Scandal

Remember during last year’s campaign when Donald Trump said that the Democrat primary was rigged and encouraged Sanders supporters to vote for him in protest? Many people laughed it off as Trump being Trump.

Well, once again, it seems Donald Trump was right. Former Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile is now throwing Hillary Clinton under the bus.

In exchange for paying off the DNC’s debt, Hillary Clinton forced the DNC to surrender control of its operations to her campaign. This surrender took place under then-Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2015 — well before the first primary votes were cast, well before she secured her party’s nomination.

Again, there’s a lot of irony here. While Brazile casts a lot of blame on Wasserman Schultz, she is not entirely innocent when it comes to rigging charges either. You may recall that Brazile was forced off CNN after it was revealed that she leaked debate questions to Hillary Clinton.

While we’re on the subject of Clinton scandals, there has been another explosive development in the Uranium One scandal — the Obama/Clinton deal that involved the sale of 20% of America’s uranium to Russia.

It has been a central talking point of the Left that the deal was no big deal because none of the companies involved held an export license, so none of the U.S. uranium would ever leave the country.

Well guess what? We are now learning that some of our uranium did in fact leave the country. Where is the Justice Department and the FBI?

These revelations are now leading to new demands that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was director of the FBI when the Uranium One scandal occurred, recuse himself from the Russia investigation he is now leading.

Speaking of Justice…

Deserter Bowe Bergdahl is getting off scot-free, in my view.

Bergdahl could have received life in prison for desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. Instead, Col. Jeffery Nance gave him a dishonorable discharge, reduced his rank to private and fined him $10,000. That’s it. No jail time.

Brave men risked their lives trying to find him after he abandoned his post. Some were injured. One, Master Sergeant Mark Allen, has been “sentenced” to life in a wheelchair and is unable to speak because of Bergdahl’s actions. There is no justice in Col. Nance’s ruling. Shame!

Russia’s Meddling

Earlier this week we reported that the Left’s Russia collusion narrative was completely falling apart. Executives from Facebook and Twitter testified on Capitol Hill that Russian internet trolls focused their efforts AFTER the election on “fomenting discord about the validity of [Trump’s] election.”

Russia’s meddling wasn’t about any particular candidate. It was designed to divide us and the Left took the bait hook, line and sinker.

​Now here’s the rest of the story…

Congressional investigators have also discovered that Russian internet trolls were pushing fake news to the Left, stirring up the “resistance movement,” Black Lives Matter activists and radical environmentalists.

It is more than likely that Russia is also supporting antifa, which is holding mass protests this weekend. It’s not a stretch to suggest a connection given that antifa is backed by avowed communists.

My friends, please take a moment to talk to your children and grandchildren — especially if you are paying their college tuition bills.

A recent survey found that nearly half of America’s Millennials would prefer to live under socialism than capitalism. That is a damning indictment against our educational system.

American’s youth today are the beneficiaries of the greatest generation of wealth and prosperity in the history of mankind. Yet they seem to have zero appreciation for what that means for them and what the legacy of communism has really meant for millions of oppressed people around the world.
