News Roundup! Former CEO Of Overstock Corp., Recession My Ass Says the Economic Train, Interview With Larry Kudlow, The Federal Reserve Is Messing With the Wrong LION, Not Easy To Buy A Gun At Walmart, 17 Immigration Fixes, Medal Of Freedom Given To Bob Cousy, Mumbling Stumbling Biden…..

WOW! This has the potential to be very explosive.

  • Byrne is now saying that in 2015 and 2016 the FBI operation was part of a network of political surveillance being conducted by the FBI on different presidential candidates.
  • Byrne names FBI Agent Peter Strzok as the person giving the instructions.
  • Byrne names: Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump as the four candidates under FBI surveillance, and/or inside an operation consisting of political espionage.
  • Byrne claims he was offered a $1 billion bribe to keep quiet.
  • Byrne also states that there are additional witnesses.
  • Byrne states he went to the DOJ in April 2019 (3rd – 10th), after Bill Barr became the Attorney General because he was informed that the new AG was trustworthy and going to support.
  • Byrne told the DOJ everything that was happening.
  • Byrne sees the deep divisions currently in our country as partly driven by this FBI operation which was political espionage.
  • Byrne feels an obligation to share the truth in an effort to help the nation understand what was happening.

Here is a thread on Overstock’s CEO Robert Byrne and his interview with Martha McCallum. We have to pray for Robert because they will do anything to shut him up.

They can stick their recession right up their asses. The Economic Train is having fun with all of them. The Economy is humming and there is nothing they can do or say that will change it.

From the article linked above:

The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits fell sharply last week, suggesting the labor market was holding firm despite a manufacturing slowdown and concerns the economy is on a path toward recession.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 12,000 to a seasonally adjusted 209,000 for the week ended Aug. 17, the Labor Department said on Thursday.

The decline was sharper than expected. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims would drop to 216,000 in the latest week.

Larry Kudlow joined Fox Business yesterday afternoon to discuss the current state of the economy. He was also questioned about the media reports surrounding discussions of new tax cuts, tax rate modifications and tax policy.

He also discussed the latest position on the U.S-China trade discussion.

The Federal Reserve is doing everything in their power to mess with our Economy. It won’t work and will destroy the world economy even more.

From the article linked above:

Federal Reserve officials may not tweet their views of monetary policy but on Thursday they were happy to take to television interviews to challenge President Donald Trump’s view about the need for lower rates.

The heads of the Kansas City and Philadelphia Federal Reserve banks both said in interviews with CNBC that they thought the July rate cut was unnecessary and further cuts uncalled for. The bond market momentarily seemed to revolt, inverting the yield curve for the third time in eight days.

Another BS narrative blows up in their face!

From the article linked above:

  • Walmart is facing calls to stop selling guns in the wake of deadly shootings at its stores.
  • I went to a Walmart store in Virginia with the intention of buying a gun as part of an investigation into the placement, selection, marketing, security, and sales of firearms in Walmart’s stores.
  • My journey to bring a gun home from Walmart was more complicated than I expected, and I was left with the impression that the company takes gun security and sales seriously.

HERE ARE HER FINDINGS:

  • Walmart does not make it easy to figure out which stores sell guns.
  • The firearms at Walmart were locked inside a case and secured to one another with zip ties attached to a metal cord.
  • Only certain employees can open the case and handle the firearms. These include sporting-goods associates or salaried managers who have passed both an enhanced background check and online training provided by Walmart, the company told me. The store employees abided by these rules while I was there.
  • When I asked to purchase a gun, the Walmart employee who was authorized to sell guns called for backup to make sure the process was completed correctly.
  • Walmart refused to sell me a gun when an authorized seller wasn’t present and when the address on my license didn’t match my home address, even though those issues could mean a lost sale.
  • There were no advertising materials or promotions in the store to lure people to buy guns.

Excellent article that explains the 17 different fixes that are cutting illegal crossings.

From the article linked above:

The Trump administration’s change, announced Wednesday, to end “catch-and-release” immigration is the 17th initiative announced this year alone — moves that are leading to a decrease in illegal crossings.

Below are the immigration efforts unveiled this year by the administration, pulled from a new fact sheet:

  • Flores change to stop catch-and-release by holding immigrant families in federal facilities while their case is processed instead of releasing them after 20 days and hoping they return to immigration courts.
  • Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), a deal in which migrants seeking admission to the U.S. from Mexico may be required to wait in Mexico. Since it was signed in May, Southwest border arrests have decreased 43%.
  • Border Wall. 52 miles new wall built in heavily trafficked areas along the Southern border with 334 miles of border wall promised to be built by the end of 2020.
  • 5,000 troops have been sent to the border.
  • The Pentagon has redirected $2.5 billion from the military construction budget to help build 100 miles of the wall along the Southern border.
  • The U.S. and Guatemala agreed to enter an Asylum Cooperative Agreement to allow asylum seekers to be transported to Guatemala to seek asylum there first.
  • $4.6 billion in emergency aid sought by the administration was approved. The administration said it provided “minimal funding for the humanitarian mission at the border, providing supplies for the hundreds of thousands of aliens coming into the country each month.”
  • The “asylum rule” made migrants ineligible for asylum if they passed through another country on their way to the U.S. without claiming asylum there. Only 10 to 15 percent are ever granted asylum.
  • The public charge rule requires immigrants to “be self-sufficient and able to support themselves without specified government welfare benefits.”
  • Drug enforcement was expanded. In June, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol seized a vessel that contained 33 thousand pounds of cocaine, one of the largest cocaine drug seizures in history.
  • The administration moved to challenge activist judicial decisions.
  • Law enforcement has been beefed up, especially at ICE where enforcement and removal operations have been expanded.
  • More Border Patrol agents have been assigned to the border.
  • More asylum officers, 500 more by the end of the year, have been created.
  • Sponsors of migrants are now facing enforcement of their legal responsibilities.
  • Justice issued a rule “more clearly defining the category of ‘social groups’ as a claim for credible fear in asylum cases.”
  • The minimum investment required in the EB-5 Visa Immigrant Investor Program was increased.

Our President presented basketball legend, Robert Cousy, the Presidential Medal of Freedom

Meanwhile, here is their dream candidate that is going to beat our President in 2020.

News Roundup! PDJT’s Presser, PDJT’s Speech In Kentucky, Policy Directive For Disabled Vets, Dr. Robert Epstein’s Tweet Storm, Recession My Ass, Germany On the Other Hand, Wall, Ending the Flores Agreement, Illegals Are Going Back, Coast-To-Coast Campaign For Suburban Women, The Forgotten Men & Women Are Not Forgotten Under PDJT, Florida Taking Steps To Protect Their Elections…..

As PDJT departed the White House for a flight to Kentucky yesterday, he stopped to answer questions from the media pool.  PDJT took questions for over 35 minutes.

Here is the link to the transcript.

https://publicpool.kinja.com/subject-remarks-by-president-trump-before-marine-one-d-1837455484

The Leftists, MSM, Democrats, Never Trumpers went absolutely crazy when our President said, “I am the chosen one… Somebody had to do it, so I’m taking on China…” and looked up to the heavens.

President Trump also delivered remarks at the American Veterans (AMVETS) 75th National Convention yesterday.

During his speech, he announced a policy directive to the U.S. Department of Education to immediately facilitate the discharge of federal student loan debt for any veteran permanently disabled as part of their military service.

You can find the policy directive in the link below.

https://publicpool.kinja.com/subject-presidential-memorandum-on-discharging-the-fed-1837452489

25,000 disabled veterans will benefit due to our President’s policy directive.

For those that were asking yesterday, you will find all 18 tweets by Dr. Robert Epstein below.

The Economic Train is absolutely laughing her ass off. The MSM, Democrats, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. are praying to Lucifer for our country to go into a recession. She knows that there will NEVER be a recession under PDJT. She decided to rain on their parade yesterday with more data that shows just how strong our economy is.

From the article linked above:

  • Lowe’s second-quarter earnings and revenue beat Wall Street expectations.
  • It reports U.S. same-store sales were up 3.2%, slightly higher than competitor Home Depot’s.
  • Shares gained more than 10% on Wednesday.

Lowe’s shares surged Wednesday after the home improvement retailer’s second-quarter earnings report beat Wall Street forecasts and topped rival Home Depot on same-store sales growth in the U.S.

The report which exceeded analyst estimates on earnings, revenue and same-store sales — showed that changes made by CEO Marvin Ellison have started to take root and draw more customers.

The company’s stock gained more than 10%, closing at $108 a share Wednesday.

From the article linked above:

  • Target’s second-quarter earnings and revenue beat Wall Street expectations.
  • The strong momentum in the first half of the fiscal year prompts Target to raise its full-year estimates.
  • Last week, Walmart also topped Wall Street’s expectations and raised its full-year outlook.

Target’s second-quarter earnings report Wednesday beat every estimate forecast by Wall Street, sending its shares to a record high.

The retailer’s quarterly profit jumped by 17% as its in-store pickup and same-day shipping services successfully drew more customers. It also raised its outlook for the rest of the year.

Sales at the company’s stores that have been open for at least a year grew 3.4% during the quarter, also exceeded expectations. 

MAGAnomics at its finest!

From the article linked above:

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) said existing home sales gained 2.5% in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.42 million, beating the consensus forecast. The forecasts ranged from 5.25 million to 5.5 million, with the consensus coming in at 5.385 million.

Here is a country that is throwing everything at stopping a recession. They will Not be successful in their endeavors.

From the article linked above:

  • Germany’s central bank has warned that the economy could shrink for a second consecutive quarter, plunging the country into recession.
  • The German government is exploring ways to boost the world’s fourth-biggest economy and prevent an economic crisis, according to Bloomberg.
  • Finance Minister Olaf Scholz is prepared to inject 50 billion euros, or $55 billion, the cost of the most recent economic crisis to strike Germany.

The WALL is continuing to be built. Look at the difference between what existed versus what our President is putting up. Night and day difference!

As reported yesterday, DHS McAleenan has filed the 60 day notice to end the Flores Agreement.

Meanwhile, more and more illegals are realizing that they aren’t going to get into our country and are going back home.

From the article linked above:

More than 2,000 Central American migrants seeking to settle in the United States have given up and accepted free rides home under a 10-month-old program funded by the U.S. government and run by a United Nations agency, according to a U.N. official.

The “Assisted Voluntary Return” program has paid for buses or flights for 2,170 migrants who either never reached the United States or were detained after crossing the border and then sent to Mexico to await U.S. immigration hearings, according to Christopher Gascon, an official with the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Brad Parscale and his team are going after every possible vote.

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign will dispatch more than a dozen female surrogates on Thursday to some of the most important 2020 battleground states in its first major push to mobilize suburban women — a critical voting bloc that revolted against Republican candidates as recently as the midterm elections last fall.

Campaign officials have billed the cross-country events as both a celebration of women’s suffrage — Monday marks the 99th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment, which guarantees women the right to vote — and a coordinated effort to train pro-Trump women to become effective volunteers in their communities. A campaign official involved with the planning said about 2,000 attendees were expected across the gatherings in 13 states, as of Tuesday.

The Forgotten Men & Women are forgotten no more under PDJT!

From the article linked above:

As Democratic presidential candidates descended on the Iowa State Fair, a plane buzzed overhead, an ominous warning fluttering behind it on a banner: “Focus on Rural America.”

Democrats hoping to win the White House in 2020 recognize how critical that advice is after 2016, when Hillary Clinton turned in strong performances in many cities and suburbs but lost rural voters 2-to-1, falling short to President Donald Trump by slim margins in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

But the presidential primary, often dominated by cultural issues and Trump-driven hot buttons, including immigration and race, isn’t helping their case.

“There’s good reason to worry because the reality is this: There’s a fundamental values gap between the mainstream Democratic Party, which tends to be more socially liberal and cosmopolitan in its outlook, and rural and small-town voters,” said Mark Mellman, a Democratic pollster whose past campaigns include Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers’ 2018 victory and the 2018 defeat of Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.). “Unless a candidate can build bridges across that gap on the basis of values, it’s very difficult to make any policy proposal matter.”

“Right now, no one is building those bridges,” Mellman continued.

A Democratic consultant, granted anonymity to discuss the issue candidly, said that if Democrats are “the party of banning assault weapons and decriminalizing the border, then rural voters are not going to be able to hear any Democrats’ policy plan.”

“That’s like bringing a boombox to a rock concert,” the consultant said.

Governor DeSantis announced yesterday that Florida will be joining ERIC.

 

News Roundup! Flores Agreement, Space Force, MSM Wants To Hide the Antisemitics, PDJT Meets With President of Romania, Comments About China During Presser In the Oval Office, PM Conte Of Italy Resigns, PDJT Spoke With the President Of the NRA, Energy Dominance, Jon McNaughton’s Latest Painting, No Trip To Denmark, Congratulations Are In Order…..

Our President is taking a sledgehammer to the Democrats, MSM, Never Trumpers, Koch Brothers, CoC etc. holy grail.

From the article linked above:

The Trump administration is seeking to terminate the Flores settlement, an immigration-related court order that prevents most migrant family units from being held in detention centers for more than 20 days, the Daily Caller has learned.

Eliminating the Flores settlement would allow the U.S. government to hold migrant children and their families indefinitely while they await court proceedings. The 1997 Flores v. Reno decision by the Supreme Court laid out specific conditions under which unaccompanied migrant children could be held in detention, and was later expanded to place time restrictions on the detention of migrant children accompanied by family members.

The new rule is expected to be rolled out during a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) press conference on Wednesday morning.

“The Administration is closing one of the legal loopholes that has allowed human traffickers and smugglers to exploit our vulnerabilities at the southern border,” a senior administration official told the Daily Caller. “President Trump has made it clear that he’s going to secure America’s border at all cost and this rule plays a vital role in the strategy to restore the integrity to our immigration system and our national security.”

They will immediately get a Leftist Judge to put an injunction on it. The problem for them is that the 9th Circuit currently has the following breakdown:

  • 16 Democrat Appointed Judges
  • 12 Republican Appointed Judges

Our President is going to fill the last seat to make it 16 Democrat versus 13 Republican Judges. The odds that the 3 Judge Appellate panel has 2 Republican Judges is about 35% to 40%.

On August 29th, we will be one step closer to Space Force becoming a reality.

From the article linked above:

The Trump administration will officially launch a new combatant command dedicated to space next week.

Vice President Pence and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford announced at Tuesday’s National Space Council meeting in Virginia that U.S. Space Command will officially be up and running Aug. 29.

Space Command, which will be responsible for planning and executing space operations, will have 87 units at launch next week, Dunford said.

Their capabilities will include missile warning, satellite operations, space control and space support, Dunford said.

“This step will put us on a path to maintain a competitive advantage in, as Vice President Pence described this and as the president has described it, in this critical warfighting domain,” he said. “The direction is clear, we understand it and we’re moving out.”

In June, the Senate confirmed Gen. John Raymond to be the commander of Space Command.

The two Antisemitics are a gift to our country and our President. The MSM knows how devastating they are for the Democrat Party.

The problem for them is that our President puts them on blast every chance he gets. Causing Americans to tune in.

Here are examples from yesterday involving our President going after members of the Squad.

Our President hosted the President of Romania in the White House yesterday. During the Oval Office media availability by both leaders PDJT took multiple questions from the media.

https://publicpool.kinja.com/subject-remarks-by-president-trump-and-president-iohan-1837417912

The Q & A was on many different topics but this portion was a standout for me because our President has been preparing for the last 30 years for this confrontation.

The question was: ” Mr. President, you keep insisting that your trade war with China — the trade war with China is not affecting the U.S. economy. But a lot of economists disagree with that. And they worry that if China goes into a recession, they’ll pull us down with it.”

Everyone is focusing on the U.K. and Brexit. The reality is that the U.K. leaving the European Union isn’t going to destroy the EU. It will absolutely hurt it but it won’t destroy it.

What will take the European Union down is if Italy were too leave. With yesterday’s announcement, we are one step closer to that reality.

Italy is one of the key economies within the EU. In the past several years, because of economic and unfettered immigration challenges, the populist revolt has gained tremendous ground in Italy. With the populist rise, one man has won the hearts on many Italian voters, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. Matteo Salvini is a proud Italian Populist.

From the article linked above:

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced his resignation in a speech to the Senate on Tuesday, blaming far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for causing a political crisis as Italy looks to draw up a challenging budget to keep its parlous finances on track.

[…] Leaders of 5 Star are exploring the only plausible alternative to snap elections the League would likely win: a new coalition government with their longstanding foes, the mainstream center-left Democratic Party. Talks in coming days could show whether such a coalition is possible or early elections are needed.

[…] The political upheaval has gone further in Italy than in most other EU countries. In March 2018 elections, Italy’s mainstream parties suffered a heavy defeat. In a country tired of economic stagnation and ineffectual political incumbents, one in three Italians backed 5 Star, while the League won 17% of the vote. Since then, however, 5 Star has struggled in government and its support has halved, while Mr. Salvini’s tough stance on immigration has helped double support for the League.

If Italy holds early elections, Mr. Salvini could become the first leader of a major EU nation who comes from a self-described populist party to the right of Europe’s mainstream conservatives. Mr. Salvini, an avowed admirer of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has challenged the EU’s rules on fiscal discipline, accusing Germany and France of hypocritically breaking the rules while imposing austerity on Italy. Some League officials have advocated Italy’s exit from the euro.

Our President did another head fake on the MSM, Democrats, Never Trumpers, Leftists etc. when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.

From the article linked above:

President Trump called National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday to tell him that universal background checks for gun purchases are off the table, The Atlantic reported.

The decision to oppose an initiative that has strong support in public polling signals an apparent backtracking by the president from initial comments he made following two mass shootings earlier this month in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left 31 dead.

“He was cementing his stance that we already have background checks and that he’s not waffling on this anymore,” a source told The Atlantic with regard to Trump’s phone call with LaPierre on Tuesday. “He doesn’t want to pursue it.”

Trump told LaPierre that he instead wanted to focus on “increasing funding” for mental health care and directing attorneys general across the country to start prosecuting “gun crime” through federal firearms charges from the Justice Department, according to The Atlantic.

Energy Dominance displayed in some beautiful graphs!

Another incredible painting by Jon McNaughton.

From the artist: “What does the future hold for America? President Trump’s last few years in office have been remarkable. He has changed the direction of this county economically, devastated ISIS, negotiated with countries on the world stage, and been a powerful voice for American ideals.

It hasn’t been easy, as he has been blocked by both Republicans and Democrats, trashed by the media, and hunted by the deep state in an attempt to undermine his presidency. But, the “painting” is not finished!”

“I believe that Trump will yet reveal in the future a greater degree of prosperity, justice, and American influence that has never been seen before. His greatest achievements are yet to be revealed. How will history remember the presidency of Donald J. Trump? I believe it will be considered a “Masterpiece.””

Here is a link to his site.

Our President is a busy man. Greenland is not for sale according to the PM of Denmark. Our President won’t waste his time visiting.

Congratulations to Eric and Lara Trump on the addition to their family, Carolina Dorothy Trump.

We are so blessed as a country for the entire Trump family!

Duchess01 shared a video in yesterday’s news roundup. Well worth the 5 minute watch.

All that the Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. have left is what Candace calls “The Black Card”. They are using that card to call our President and his Deplorables racists, white nationalists, Nazis etc. There purpose in using the card is twofold.

Convince Black and Hispanic voters that they are the only ones that care about them and their interests. They have seen the polling. Our President is consistently polling in the high teens with Blacks and in the mid 30s with Hispanics. Those numbers would mean the end of the Democrat Party.

The second reason is to make White voters feel bad that they were born into opportunities because of their skin color. They hope that those White voters decide to rebel against our President.

The problem for them is that the have gone to the well one to many times. People have completely begun to tune them out. The problem for them is that they have nothing else. Here is a perfect example from last night.

You are going to see more and more Americans feel this way as we get closer to Election Day in 2020. Not just Whites but Blacks and Hispanics as well.

From the article linked above:

For decades progressives have denounced America as hopelessly retrograde and racist. Naturally, they’re talking about everyone except themselves.

The insult-them-until-they-join-our-side strategy has gained devotees since the mass shootings. While no fewer than five presidential candidates have called Trump a white supremacist, their fellow progressives are shedding their reluctance to say the same of his supporters.        

The swing voters who will decide the next election won’t care whether Democrats rate Donald Trump a racist or a white nationalist or a white supremacist. With the left’s favorite epithet flying around the political sphere more freely than ever and the definition of racism facing possible expansion, they’ll want to know what Democrats think of them.

No one deliberately votes to be despised.

These polling numbers will only continue to rise because their well is dry. There’s will continue to drop.

Our President had liberal heads exploding with this tweet! There will never be another President like DJT. We are living in historical times. Don’t take a minute of it for granted.

Millions of aborted babies are smiling down on our President from Heaven.

From the article linked above:

The Planned Parenthood abortion business announced today it will officially withdraw from the Title X program — costing it $60 million in taxpayer funds because it refuses to follow a new Trump administration rule that requires it to segment out its abortion business from legitimate health care if it wants federal funding under the program.

Because the abortion giant is withdrawing from Title X, the $60 million in taxpayer dollars it received annually can be redistributed to groups that engage in legitimate women’s health care.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals late Friday rejected a request from more than 20 states, Planned Parenthood and the American Medical Association to block new pro-life rules that Planned Parenthood is refusing to follow. Leading pro-life groups have praised the Trump administration for prioritizing women’s health ahead of abortion. This action adds to President Trump’s record of defunding the Planned Parenthood abortion company.

Title X funds are supposed to be used to help low-income women and men receive birth control, cancer screenings and other health care services. While the tax money cannot be used to pay for abortions, it indirectly funds Planned Parenthood’s vast abortion business.

The day got worse for Planned Parenthood.

From the article linked above:

An Arizona jury has unanimously awarded $3 million in damages to a former Planned Parenthood director who was fired after reporting an abortionist’s illegal conduct and high complication rates, falsification of affidavits and patient records, incomplete abortions, and failure to report statutory rape.

Mayra Rodriguez, who ran three Planned Parenthood clinics in Arizona and worked for the organization for 17 years, sued the non-profit after being wrongfully terminated from her position in October 2017 after repeatedly making claims that Planned Parenthood was endangering the health and safety of its patients.

The Economic Train absolutely loves that the Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers, CoC, Multinationals etc. are coming at her with everything they got. They realize that the only way they would have any chance in 2020 is to derail her.

She has been sitting in mothballs for the past three decades. She has been unleashed by our President and will never let him down.

From the article linked above:

There is a significant body of evidence showing that the U.S. economy is strong. The U.S. economy has added millions of jobs, and even long-neglected sectors like manufacturing are having a resurgence.

Among the continuous good economic news, wage growth for America’s workers has taken center stage. For the first time since 2009, year over year nominal hourly wage growth met or surpassed 3 percent under the Trump Administration. Wages have continued to do so for 12 months, even as inflation stayed below the Federal Reserve’s target 2.0 percent. Not only are wages growing but the slow growth in consumer prices means that American workers’ dollars are going farther. It is no wonder consumer confidence surged in July as consumers became more optimistic about their current situation and future economic prospects.

The resulting surge in job creation and record low unemployment has put the American worker in the driver’s seat. Because of President Trump’s policies, American companies and their workers are succeeding together.

From the article linked above:

The Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce announced U.S. retail e-commerce sales for the second quarter (Q2) 2019 came in at an estimated $146.2 billion, an increase of 4.2% (±0.9%) from Q1 2019.

Estimates are adjusted for seasonal variation, but not for price changes.

Prior Actual
E-Sales Q/Q ∆ SAAR 3.6% 4.2%

The advance estimate for retail sales came in at $523.5 billion in July, an increase of 0.7% (±0.5%) and more than double the consensus forecast. That followed an increase of 0.4% (±0.5%) in June, also stronger than expected. 

The Q2 2019 e-commerce estimate rose 13.3% (±1.6%) from Q2 2018 and total retail sales have gained 3.2% (±0.5%) during the same period.

From the article linked above:

An Australian steelmaker said it will spend roughly US$700 million to expand its U.S. business, joining American rivals that have outlined plans to add capacity domestically in the wake of President Trump’s import tariffs.

BlueScope Steel LTD. said annual steelmaking capacity at its North Star facility in Delta, Ohio would increase by 40%, or 850,000 metric tons, once expansion is complete.

The Judicial Armada is going to continue to grow in the not to distant future.

Our President has nominated 1 Circuit Judge & 9 additional District Judges.

Meanwhile, the Antisemitics decided to spew their hated of Israel and our President in front of the cameras.

The Dragon realizes that the EAGLE means business.

From the article linked above:

China National Petroleum Corp, a leading buyer of Venezuelan oil, has halted August loadings following the latest U.S. sanctions on the South American exporter, three sources with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Monday.

The Trump administration in early August froze all Venezuelan government assets in the United States and U.S. officials ratcheted up threats against companies that do business with Venezuela’s state-run oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., or PDVSA.

Our President is absolutely loved around the world.

Our President has Big Tech in his crosshairs. He tweeted the following yesterday.

The WALL continues to be built unabated!

We will win the State of Minnesota in 2020 for the first time since 1972.

From the article linked above:

If you want to know why the Trump campaign is so bullish on Minnesota, look no further than the state’s Democratic-Farm-Labor Party. The DFL was created in the 1940s when Democrats represented middle class workers — on the farm and off.

No more. The DFL train has dropped the Farm-Labor passenger cars, and what’s left is quickly flying off the rails.

The Minnesota “resistance” movement started with the antics of “indivisible” groups crashing town halls, but it’s finishing with the greatest geographical divide in the state’s history. Indeed, while liberals pitch “smart growth,” congestion, expensive light rail and green new deals for the urban elites, they’re handing out pink slips for the trade unions on the Iron Range.

Unified Democrat opposition to the popular replacement pipeline project of Enbridge Line 3 — which supports thousands of jobs and promises to generate $20 million in state revenue — is just one reason why areas of the state that were once considered solidly Democrat are strongly trending red.

There is NO LOSING under PDJT!

News Roundup! All They Can Do Is Cry About the Judicial Armada, Mexico Is Doing More Than Democrats, Peter Navarro Speaks the Truth On Tariffs & WSJ, Generation Z Are Feeling MAGAnomics, Americans Will Work When Illegals Are Removed, China Is Dying A Slow Death, PDJT’s Presser, They Are Hiding the Front Runner…..

Once our President secured a 53 seat majority in the Senate, there was absolutely nothing the MSM, Democrats, Never Trumpers, Leftists etc. could do to stop our President’s Judicial Armada from growing.

They decided to cry about it today.

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are reshaping federal courts at a blazing pace, with the Senate’s confirmation of 59 judges so far this year offering a bright spot for the GOP leader who has been criticized for holding up action on just about everything else.

The Senate confirmed 13 district court judges two weeks ago before leaving for Congress’s annual August recess. That brought the number appointed so far in Trump’s presidency to 99, in addition to a record 43 appellate court judges and the confirmation of conservative Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Instead, he has largely turned the Senate into a machine that cranks out conservative judges. More than two-thirds are white men and their median age is 47.5 years. Many agree with the conservative Federalist Society’s effort to limit the federal government’s ability to assert powers that aren’t spelled out in the Constitution. The group helped Trump vet Supreme Court candidates.

“When you view the total landscape of what Congress is doing, this is the grand slam,” said Federalist Society executive vice president Leonard Leo, who has been a key adviser to the president. “It’s a multi-generational shift in the courts and no one can change that. It’s why McConnell has made such a priority of it.”

McConnell and Trump are having their biggest impact on the 13 U.S. appeals courts, which have tremendous influence. While the Supreme Court decides fewer than 70 cases a year, appellate courts ruled on or dismissed 48,515 cases for the year ending March 31, 2019, according to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts in Washington.

The 43 appellate court judges confirmed under Trump are the most of any president at this point — and approach the 55 confirmed during Obama’s eight years in the White House. Trump-appointed judges now make up almost a quarter of the 179 full-time federal appeals court slots.

Trump’s appointees have shifted the political balance on one appeals court, the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The Senate has confirmed three Trump nominees to that court, giving it eight Republican-appointed judges and six Democratic appointees.

Tipping Point

Several other courts are nearing the tipping point. Democratic appointees have a one-seat advantage on the New York-based 2nd Circuit and the Richmond, Virginia-based 4th Circuit. The Atlanta-based 11th Circuit is evenly split with six judges appointed by each party.

And with McConnell’s help, Trump is making his mark on the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit, the longtime liberal bastion that has drawn the president’s repeated ire. The 9th Circuit now has 16 Democratic appointees and 12 Republican appointees, compared with 18 and 7 when Trump took office. Another term for Trump could let him transform that court.

I decided to ruin her and her followers Sunday by sharing the following information.

When I read this article, I had the biggest smile on my face. By sending them back to the Mexican Southern Border, many of them will go right back to their country. Mexico isn’t responsible for bringing them back to our border for their court date.

From the article linked above:

Mexico is sending some of the 30,000 Central American migrants vying for asylum in the United States on 750-mile bus rides — all the way back to southern Mexico, officials said.

The “Remain in Mexico” program pushed by the Trump administration has forced thousands of asylum seekers back to Mexico to wait months to get their turn before a US immigration judge.

But the northern state of Tamaulipas, just across the Rio Grande from Texas, is one of Mexico’s most dangerous zones — and has little housing or services for the newcomers.

The busing program, which is ferrying the migrants to the state of Chiapas just north of Guatemala, will “provide a safer alternative for those who do not want to remain on the U.S.-Mexico border,” the Mexican government said Friday.

Officials did not say how the asylum seekers will make their way back to the US-Mexico border in time for their court dates.

Peter Navarro had to kill another Fake News talking point. American consumers aren’t effected at all by the tariffs our President has imposed on China.

Here’s the easiest way you can kill their BS talking point (fits nicely in a tweet 😉).

  • The Steel (25%) and Aluminum (10%) tariffs have been in place for two years.
  • The 25% tariff on $250 billion Chinese goods have been in place over a full year.
  • The current inflation rate (Consumer Price Index) is only 1.4%.

I love Peter Navarro! He gets it and isn’t afraid to say it.

I love when Generation Z pushes back!

Speaking of Generation Z, they are LOVING MAGAnomics this summer.

From the article linked above:

Summer unemployment among young Americans is the lowest it has been since the 1960s.

The unemployment rate for Americans between ages 16 and 24 ticked down to 9.1% in July from 9.2% a year earlier, the lowest such rate since July 1966, when youth unemployment was 8.8%, the Labor Department said.

Fewer young Americans have sought summer work in recent decades, but the share of those working or seeking work also ticked upward in July to the highest level in a decade in a wider labor market hungry for workers.

Another Democrat talking point being blown up right in front of their eyes.

There is absolutely nothing that China can do to stop the inevitable from happening.

From the article linked above:

China’s central bank unveiled a key interest rate reform on Saturday to help steer borrowing costs lower for companies and support a slowing economy that has been hurt by a trade war with the United States.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said it will improve the mechanism used to establish the loan prime rate (LPR) from this month, in a move to further lower real interest rates for companies as part of broader market reforms.

Analysts say the move, which came after data that showed weaker than expected growth in July and followed a cabinet announcement on Friday, underscores the government’s attempts to use reforms to support a slowing economy.

Sources have told Reuters that more aggressive action such as interest rate cuts are a last resort, as it could fuel a sharper build-up in debt.

Wonder what the conversation was about! The last tweet above will tell you.

Our President decided to piss on President Xi’s cereal this morning!

You can find the entire press conference below (start video at the 6:45 mark) as well as the transcript.

This is the Democrat front runner. What a complete joke he and his Party are.

From the article linked above:

Joe Biden’s allies are pushing for a return to the “rose garden” strategy less than two months after the former vice president abandoned the notion and began campaigning actively.

Biden, who has retreated from the public eye after a hellish week of gaffes consumed his campaign, is being pushed to retool his schedule to limit public appearances and thereby cut down on the opportunities for verbal missteps. In particular, many are advising the 76-year-old former vice president to curb the number of events he does in the afternoon and evening – the time of day Biden has been most likely to say something embarrassing.

News Roundup! Ambassador Grenell, PDJT Visiting Poland Again, God Bless Frank, PDJT Called Frank, Antifa, Voter ID Reinstated In ND, SleepyCreepy Joe Biden Can’t Draw A Crowd, Wisconsin Will Kill the Democrats Again, ICE, Wall, California Is A Hell Hole, Trump Flags, Another Win At the 9th Circuit…..

I really believe that our President has Ambassador Grenell speaking out every chance he gets because he is going to pull the trigger and have our troops stationed in Germany moved over a period of time to Poland.

Our President is going back to Poland sometime in September. That is when it will be announced.

Poland is spending billions on our LNG. They also plan on spending billions to build Fort Trump.

From the article linked above:

An aide to Poland’s president says that President Donald Trump will visit Warsaw from Aug. 31 through Sept. 2 to take part in observances marking the 80th anniversary of World War II.

Poland is among Washington’s closest partners in Europe, with cooperation focusing on defense and energy security.

The head of President Andrzej Duda’s office, Krzysztof Szczerski, said Tuesday that Trump would arrive in Warsaw on the evening of Aug. 31.

The next day Trump will take part in ceremonies in Warsaw marking 80 years since Nazi German troops invaded Poland on Sept. 1, 1939 starting the war.

This is why I love our President so much! Who as President would ever take the time to make this call after finding out the truth about the man that was removed. He must’ve seen this clip.

God bless this PATRIOT for his commitment to our country and our President.

From the article linked above:

President Trump on Thursday called the man he mocked for having a “weight problem” at a New Hampshire rally earlier that evening after discovering he was a supporter.

A senior administration official said Friday that after campaign staff got the rallygoer’s contact information, Trump called him from Air Force One on the way back to Bedminster, N.J. The president left a voicemail message.

The man, Frank Dawson, a law enforcement and Navy veteran, was interviewed by Fox News Thursday night following the rally and revealed he was a Trump supporter, adding that he ripped signs out of the hands of nearby protesters at the rally.

“He didn’t see me rip the signs away from those three people that were sitting near us, and they were trying to cause a ruckus,” Dawson told Fox. “It wasn’t going to happen beside me because I’m trying to listen to my president.”

“I think he thought I was part of it, but I wasn’t. I was the good part of it,” Dawson added.

Dawson said Trump’s mockery of him didn’t change his opinion of the president. 

“I love the guy,” Dawson told Fox. “He’s the best thing that ever happened to this country.”

Antifa was back at it yesterday in Portland! I hope and pray that our President follows through on his tweet.

What happened to this man was absolutely disgusting!

Many more videos can be seen in the thread below.

Meanwhile the POS Mayor is patting himself on the back that no one was killed.

Voter id opponents lose again!

From the article linked above:

Opponents of election integrity lost the latest in a long string of cases recently when a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated North Dakota’s voter ID requirement and tossed out an injunction that had been issued by a lower court.

In Brakebill v. Jaeger, Judge Steven Colloton, writing for the 2-to-1 majority, concluded that the supposed burden of obtaining an ID by the less than 0.5% of all eligible voters who do not already have one did not justify a statewide injunction that prevented the state from implementing the ID requirement.

The majority rejected the plaintiffs’ contention that requiring voters to have a residential street address is discriminatory, citing former Associate Justice John Paul Stevens’ opinion in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board (2008), in which the Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter ID requirement.

He is the one that will beat our Lion in 2020 according to all the pundits. I don’t think so!

From the article linked above:

Joe Biden drew only 30 supporters to an event held at the same time as President Donald Trump’s massive rally in New Hampshire on Thursday.

The Eagle-Tribune, a local Massachusetts newspaper, reported the former vice president’s campaign only enticed “about 30 supporters” to attend an event held in Manchester, New Hampshire at the same time Trump was hosting his rally in the state.

The best 40 second video showing real winning.

The state that the Democrats took for granted is going to destroy them once again in 2020!

From the article linked above:

President Trump is polling better in the critical state of Wisconsin than he did when he won the state in 2016, according to a poll conducted recently by progressive media company Crooked Media and research company Change Research.

The President’s job approval rating among Wisconsin voters is 48-51%. His personal favorability rating is 45-51%. His approval rating on the economy is 50-48%,” Crooked Media said in a press release on Thursday.

Trump’s 45% is higher than the average 40% who said they would vote for him in 2016, according to RealClearPolitics.

Crooked Media’s Dan Pfeiffer, who was a senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, wrote in a blog post about the poll, “Anyone who thinks Donald Trump will be easy to beat in Wisconsin is sorely mistaken, and the path to the White House for a Democrat gets very narrow without Wisconsin.”

The poll also found the top issue among Wisconsin is immigration.

I love it! ICE continues to raid businesses.

From the article linked above:

On Friday in Barboursville the community was abuzz about rumors of an ICE raid in area.

The parking was full outside of the Tortilla Factory: A Mexican Kitchen, and some people WOWK-13 News ran into were hoping to grab a meal at their favorite Mexican restaurant, but unfortunately its doors were closed for business.

However, According to a note on the door of the Mexican restaurant . . .  ICE was here.

The not read: “Hungry? Thank ICE. Montani Semper Liberi”

Meanwhile the WALL continues to be built and our President plans of putting up more money next year to make sure the entire job gets done.

California is turning into a complete shitshow! This woman explains why.

Love all the boat owners that show their support for our President in different parts of our country.

The 9th Circuit is literally changing right in front of our eyes.

From the article linked above:

A U.S. appeals court Friday again declined to block new rules from the Trump administration that prohibit clinics that receive federal funds from referring patients for abortions.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a request from more than 20 states, Planned Parenthood and the American Medical Association to suspend the rules while their case against them is litigated, according to The Associated Press.

A three-judge panel and an 11-judge panel had already decided that the rules could go into effect while the administration appeals district court rulings against them. Oral arguments are slated to begin next month.

Winning every single day under PDJT!

 

News Roundup! The Left Are Just Plain Dumb, Voter Registration Update, 63% Believe PDJT Wins In 2020, 3rd Quarter Real GDP Rate Revised Upwards, China Lost the Trade War & May Lose Their Entire Economy, Epstein’s Lawyers Refute Medical Examiner’s Conclusion, Hannity Clips, Big Win In 9th Circuit, Tlaib Exposed As A Fraud…..

The Left decided today to run with the following hashtag #EmptySeatMAGATour.

I guess The Hill and the MORONS on the Left didn’t expect this reporter to confirm that a record was actually set last night.

From the article linked above:

  • Trump claimed he broke Elton John’s attendance record at a Manchester, New Hampshire arena on Thursday night
  • Eye-rolling followed, with opponents showing images of empty seats
  • But the Manchester Fire Marshal’s Office told DailyMail.com that it had counted 11,500 people entering the building, and a few more may have slipped in
  • That would break Elton John’s 2004 record of 11,300, according to what arena officials told the fire department
  • Deputy Fire Marshal Mitchell Cady said he and his staff estimated another 8,000-9,000 people couldn’t get in and watched video screens outside
  • They marked off where the outdoor crowd stood, computed the size of the area and used a standard equation to determine how many people fit there 

They absolutely picked the wrong night! Here are more photos and videos that show how humongous the crowd was.

This gentleman had some great comments about the rally.

Larry’s summary can be found below.

The Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. are praying to Lucifer for a recession in the worst way. The problem for them is twofold. The Economic Train continues to crisscross our country picking up passengers and running over her enemies while Democrats running for President have been a total disaster in the first two debates.

Look how much the percentage that believe our President will win in 2020 has gone up since February.

After Thursday’s retail report, the St. Louis Federal Reserve updated their forecast for the 3rd Quarter real GDP rate.

The Chinese have already lost the trade war! Now they are fighting not to lose their entire economy.

From the article linked above:

US President Donald Trump’s trade war has enraged the Chinese government but it has also attracted some support among the Chinese people. A Twitter account run by Chinese immigrants in the US translates all his tweets for more than 100,000 followers – many of whom see Trump as a human rights advocate.

For at least four hours each day, Jeff Ding, 45, pays close attention to the Twitter account of @realDonaldTrump

With every new tweet, Ding rapidly translates the president’s words into Chinese for @Trump_Chinese. The freelance engineering consultant in Los Angeles who hails from the same Central China province as Chairman Mao Zedong, is one of the three volunteers running @Trump_Chinese.

They are all Trump supporters that are critical of the Chinese government and hope to “spread Trump’s messages in the Chinese-speaking world”, says Ding. The account, which translates as “Trump’s Chinese synchronous tweets” in English, notes its mission is to help followers “understand the theories of governance through Trump’s tweets”.

Even Epstein’s lawyers aren’t buying the conclusion from the medical examiner.

On Hannity yesterday night, they discussed the medical examiner’s conclusion plus much more. You can find the clips below.

Another major victory came out of the 9th Circuit that could have major implications on nationwide injunctions.

From the article linked above:

A federal appeals court sided with the Trump administration on Friday in the legal battle over its efforts to limit asylum claims from Central America – blocking, for now, a nationwide injunction that blocked the implementation of the rule.

Last month a California federal judge blocked the rule that would require migrants to first apply in one of the countries they cross on their way to the U.S. – with certain exceptions. The rule is tailored to target Central Americans from the Northern Triangle of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras who would travel across multiple countries, including Mexico, before claiming asylum in the U.S.

But the San Francisco federal appeals court for the 9th Circuit on Friday ruled that the injunction imposed by the California federal judge can only apply in states within the court’s jurisdiction in the western U.S. The ruling says that the court failed to discuss why a nationwide injunction was necessary to remedy the harm alleged by those immigration advocacy groups named in the lawsuit.

“The district court clearly erred by failing to consider whether nationwide relief is necessary to remedy Plaintiffs’ alleged harms,” the ruling says. “And, based on the limited record before us, we do not believe a nationwide injunction is justified.”

With this ruling, anyone crossing the border into Texas (1,254 mile border with Mexico) or New Mexico (170 mile border with Mexico) will have to show they applied for asylum in the first country they crossed. It will allow them to be sent right back to that country without being able to file asylum in our country. If they say they didn’t do that, they get sent back to their country of citizenship.

I love that the POS was exposed for what she and her Party really are, anti semites!

Our President called her on her BS and decided to have some fun at her expense.

These are the animals she supports!

This had to cause convulsions amongst the Democrats, Leftists, MSM, Never Trumpers etc.

From the article linked above:

Trump’s support with his base has increased drastically; Nearly half of Hispanics approve of Trump

“President Trump continues to score well with younger Millennial voters aged 18-29 (46% approve/50% disapprove) and Generation Z voters aged 18-24 (44% approve/53% disapprove). Usually, Trump does best with voters over 50, but in our latest poll, he is receiving solid support from voters under 50–a majority of Generation X voters aged 30-49 approved of Trump’s job as president (51% approve/49% disapprove).

The President also received a good approval rating with voters aged 25-54; he received a majority job approval rating from older Millennial voters aged 25-34 (52% approve/47% disapprove) and middle aged voters aged 35-54 (52% approve/46% disapprove). Among the oldest voters surveyed-aged 65+ and 70+ , Trump’s job approval rebounded (57% approve/42% disapprove and 62% approve/38% disapprove, respectively). As per usual, the president did well with men (58% approve/41% disapprove) and he continued to improve his support with all women (44% approve/53% disapprove).”

NOTE: Our President only got 29% of Hispanics and 8% of Blacks votes in 2016 & still won!

Hispanics, this time around, were much more likely to approve of his job performance (49% approve/51% disapprove), while the president also saw his numbers jump with African Americans. This was his second straight poll with over a quarter support from African Americans (28% approve/70% disapprove).

More and more Democrats are attending our President’s rallies and throwing their support towards him.

People no longer feel the need to hide their support for our President.

PM Netanyahu’s government cited the continued effort of Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to advocate for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, as the reasons they notified Representatives Omar and Tlaib Wednesday night they would not be granted entry visas this weekend.

Our President sent out a few tweets before the decision was made.

From the article linked above:

Israel on Thursday barred Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the Jewish state, citing their support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement — a decision that unleashed a torrent of condemnation by Democratic congressional lawmakers.

“The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Bet Radio.

[…]  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the announcement by Interior Minister Aryeh Deri by saying Israel is a “vibrant and free democracy” that is open to criticism of its policies, but “with one exception.”

“Israel’s law prohibits the entry of people who call and operate to boycott Israel, as is the case with other democracies that prevent the entry of people whose perception harms the country,” he said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The decision was made by Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Israel Katz and Minister of Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan.

“The State of Israel respects the US Congress, as part of the close alliance, but it is inconceivable that anyone who wishes to harm the State of Israel will be allowed, even during the visit,” a press statement said.

Our President shared some remarks on Israel’s decision before leaving for New Hampshire.

More winning for American workers! This is what happens when you put America First.

From the article linked above:

  • Dozens of truck drivers have told Business Insider that an electronic-logging-device mandate to enforce hours-of-service rules had damaged their ability to make a living and made their jobs more unsafe.
  • But the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Wednesday proposed five changes to the hours-of-service rules.
  • The changes would save businesses across America some $274 million, the agency said.

One of the most despised trucking laws is set to get an overhaul.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which oversees all of America’s commercial drivers, including its 1.8 million long-haul truckers, announced on Wednesday that it would modify its hours-of-service rules, which have been in place since 1937.

You can take your damn recession and stick it up your ass!

From the article linked above:

Walmart (WMT) reported better-than-expected second-quarter earnings early Thursday amid strong U.S. same-store sales and e-commerce growth as it fights for retail supremacy vs. Amazon.com (AMZN).

Estimates: Wall Street expected Walmart earnings per share to slip 6% to $1.21 as revenue ticks up 2% to $130.49 billion. Other estimates pegged sales at around $130.1 billion.

Same-store sales, excluding gas and foreign exchange impact, were seen ticking up 2% overall, according to Consensus Metrix. They were expected to increase by 2.5% at Walmart U.S. stores, and to inch up 0.6% at Sam’s Club stores.

Results: Walmart earnings dipped to $1.27 a share as revenue rose nearly 2% to $130.4 billion. U.S. same-store sales rose 2.8% at Walmart locations and 1.2% and Sam’s Club stores. Walmart’s U.S. e-commerce sales soared 37%, while Sam’s Club saw a 35% gain.

From the article linked above:

U.S. productivity increased at a decent pace in the second quarter, a trend that could lead to higher wages if it continues.

The Labor Department said Thursday that productivity — or output per hour worked — rose 2.3% in the April-June quarter, down from 3.5% in the first three months of the year. The first quarter gain was the best in four years.

Greater productivity is a key ingredient in raising living standards. It enables companies to lift worker pay without raising prices on costumers. The recovery, now in its 11th year, has been held back by historically weak productivity growth. 

Rally recap videos and pictures. Look at the size of the overflow crowd.

The reception our President got was absolutely amazing!

Our economy is booming.

Blue collar Americans are benefiting the most from MAGAnomics.

What an incredible agenda.

We truly are in charge under PDJT.

The talking heads decided that yesterday was the day they would take their BS guns and point them at our Economic Train.

MW-HP487_RSAFS_20190815084108_MG.pngEB3I5ifXkAAEjys[1] (2).jpg

The Economic Train today decided to throw a MOAB on their collective heads. Our LION came out and put a BIG SMILE on her face!

THERE WILL NEVER EVER BE A RECESSION UNDER PDJT!

I decided to wait to right this because a major economic indicator was going to be released earlier today.

Here is the definition used to indicate when a country is in a recession.

Well here is the data!

From the article linked above:

The advance estimate for U.S. retail sales came in at $523.5 billion in July, an increase of 0.7% (±0.5%) and more than double the consensus forecast.

  Prior Revised Consensus Forecast Forecast Range Actual
Retail Sales – M/M ∆ 0.4% 0.3% 0.3% -0.3% to 0.5% 0.7%
Retail Sales less autos – M/M ∆ 0.4% 0.3% 0.4% -0.2% to 0.6% 1.0%
Less Autos & Gas – M/M ∆ 0.7% 0.6% 0.5% 0.4% to 0.5% 0.9%
Control Group – M/M ∆ 0.7%   0.3% 0.3% to 0.3% 1.0%

In another indication of strong consumer spending, U.S. retail sales are 3.4% (±0.7%) above July 2018. Total sales for May 2019 to July 2019 were up 3.3% (±0.5%) from the same period a year ago.

Retail trade sales were up 0.6% (±0.5%) from June 2019, and 3.4% (±0.7%) a year ago.

Non store retailers were up 16.0% (±1.4%) and miscellaneous stores were up 6.0% (±4.6%) from last year.

From the article linked above:

The New York Federal Reserve’s Empire State Manufacturing Survey unexpectedly ticked slightly higher (0.5) in August to 4.5, beating the forecast. New orders increased after two straight months of declines.

  Prior Consensus Forecast Forecast Range Actual
General Business Conditions Index – Level 4.3 2.5 -2.5  to 6.0 4.8 

The new orders index climbed back above zero to 6.7. The shipments index increased slightly to 9.3. Unfilled orders fell for a third straight month, while delivery times were steady and inventories rose for the first time since April.

70% of our quarterly and annually real GDP rate comes from consumer spending.

For the MORONS that are wishing for the worst for our economy, this right here is why you will never ever achieve your dreams.

MONEY TALKS AND BS WALKS!

From the article linked above:

Monthly reports on the number of new jobs and the unemployment rate can drown out important trends like these two: After four decades of worsening, wage inequality has started shrinking. And in a twist, America’s blue-collar workers are playing the biggest role in driving that reversal.

This may come as a surprise, because education is classically seen as a ladder up the income scale. Despite blue-collar workers often lacking college degrees, their wages have been accelerating faster than those of their white-collar counterparts.

For example: In the past three years, white-collar workers, the sector that the Bureau of Labor Statistics classifies as “Management, Professional, and Related Occupations” and which encompasses 40% of the workforce, have seen their wages grow by nearly 7.5%. During the same period, all other workers, a group composed almost entirely of noncollege grads, have seen their paychecks grow by about 10 percent. 

Moreover, that wage jump has reached not just traditional working-class mainstays, where men make up the majority. It also has reached many workers in women-dominated blue-collar jobs — for example, health support workers and personal care workers. 

From the article linked above:

Big picture: The steady pace of consumer spending at local retail stores and Internet sites is a reassuring sign for a U.S. economy that’s facing mounting hurdles, particularly a festering trade dispute with China that’s sent Wall Street stocks tumbling. Economic growth has slowed around the world and that could also spell trouble at home.

The saving grace for the economy is a healthy labor market and low unemployment rate that’s given households enough confidence to spend at levels sufficient to keep the U.S. out of recession.

Our KILLERS know the truth!

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross appeared (in studio) on CNBC to discuss the current state of the U.S. economy, the ongoing issues with communist China, the ‘next step’ trade tariffs and the situation in Hong Kong.

I can listen to Peter Navarro speak all day and night! He is an ASSASSIN. He has had his eyes on China for a very long time.

He appeared on Fox News to discuss the status of the U.S-China trade negotiations and the reason for a USTR delay on some product tariffs.

Keep the following in mind about Wall Street and the Federal reserve.

50% of all companies manufacturing in China are U.S. owned multinational corporations. Those companies don’t want tariffs to succeed in disrupting their supply chain. As a consequence those Wall St. Corps also don’t want lower U.S. Fed interest rates designed to combat China’s currency devaluation.

Lets take a look at the most powerful economy in Europe. Germany is as close as one can be to a damn RECESSION!

From the article linked above:

A decline in exports dampened growth, according to official data, which comes amid concerns of a global slowdown.

Gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 0.1% compared with the previous quarter, according to the Federal Statistics Office.

That takes the annual growth rate down to 0.4%.

Germany, Europe’s largest economy, narrowly avoided a recession last year.

In other news, the armed standoff between Philadelphia police and a suspect who shot six officers ended shortly after midnight when Maurice Hill, 36, a local man with a lengthy history of gun convictions, surrendered to authorities.

From the article linked above:

Police sources identified the gunman in a standoff at a Tioga apartment building that left six police officers injured as Maurice Hill, 36, a Philadelphia man with a lengthy history of gun convictions and of resisting attempts to bring him to justice.

After Hill’s surrender, Johnson said in an interview with CBS3 that Hill called him around 8:30 p.m. on his personal phone “in a panic.”

“I told him, ‘you gotta surrender, man,’” said Johnson, who added that he has known Hill for about a decade.

Public records show that he has been arrested about a dozen times since turning 18, and convicted six times on charges that involved illegal possession of guns, drug dealing, and aggravated assault. He has been in and out of prison; the longest sentence handed him came in 2010, when a federal judge gave him a 55-month term.

And, his record would indicate, he does not like to go to prison. In 2008, he was convicted of escaping, fleeing from police, and resisting arrest. Along the way, he beat criminal charges on everything from kidnapping to attempted murder.

The POS from Canada was slapped across the face with reality yesterday. This comes with only two months left before Canada votes on their next PM.

The Canadian Office of Ethics completed their investigation of PM Justin Trudeau and whether he inappropriately used his office to influence and pressure the Canadian Attorney General to drop criminal charges against a political ally and donor, SNC-Lavalin.

Section 9 of the Canadian Ethics Act prohibits “public office holders from using their position to seek to influence a decision of another person so as to further their own private interests or those of their relatives or friends, or to improperly further another person’s private interests.”

The investigation found:

Prime Minister Trudeau used his position of authority over Ms. Wilson‑Raybould [AG] to seek to influence, both directly and indirectly, her decision on whether she should overrule the Director of Public Prosecutions’ decision not to invite SNC-Lavalin to enter into negotiations towards a remediation agreement.

Therefore, I find that Mr. Trudeau contravened section 9 of the Act.”

The POS ran to the cameras to defend himself.

The MSM in Canada absolutely loves the POS. They will do everything in their power to cover for him. The people of Canada will ultimately have to choose on October 21st. They better choose wisely.

Meanwhile, we will never lose under PDJT!
