There Is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING That Can Stop the Economic Train…… Not Even Mother Nature……

Folks there is so much going on right now but I wanted to present a little good news. The Hurricanes, Democrats, Rhinos, CoC, Big Club, MSM, Globalist etc. are throwing the kitchen sink at the Economic Train yet it is continuing to pick up more steam as it plows along. We all know that Wall Street, S&P, NASDAQ numbers are at all time highs.

The Atlanta Federal Reserve about a month ago was predicting a 2.1% GDP for the 3rd quarter. Who could blame them given the Hurricane in Texas and Florida. However, yesterday they revised their projection from 2.3% to 2.7% and rising!

If the GDP for the 3rd quarter comes in at 2.8% or 3.0%, the MOAB of all MOABs will be dropped on D.C. The fact that the Economy continues to pick up speed with major roadblocks mean that there is nothing that will slow it down. Our LION has singlehandidly gotten our Economy to 3.0% on his own.

Once NAFTA is either renegotiated or thrown out, trade with China, South Korea etc is renegotiated, our GDP will be humming at 4% without a single policy that was passed by Congress. This is NOT a pipe dream! It is an absolute reality and it is killing them!

From the article linked above:

The GDPNow model forecast for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the third quarter of 2017 is 2.7 percent on October 2, up from 2.3 percent on September 29. The forecasts for third-quarter real consumer spending growth and third-quarter real private fixed investment growth increased from 1.8 percent and 0.3 percent, respectively, to 2.3 percent and 1.8 percent, respectively, after this morning’s construction spending release from the U.S. Census Bureau and this morning’s Manufacturing ISM Report On Business from the Institute for Supply Management (ISM).

The model’s estimate of the dynamic factor for September—normalized to have mean 0 and standard deviation 1 and used to forecast the yet-to-be released monthly GDP source data—increased from 0.04 to 1.59 after the ISM report.

Even Charles Payne from FBN Making Money realizes the Train is taking off!

  1. As an aside this reinforces a point I’ve tried to make many times in the past.

    The fastest way to kill an economy is not raising interest rates, or even taxes. Those, a business can adapt to.

    It’s to make businesses uncertain about their future regulatory environment. That’s paralyzing. When Obolacare passed, every business, it seemed, froze like a deer in the headlights, because they simply had no idea what the ramifications would be. They were afraid to hire anyone, because they didn’t know what the cost of that employee would be a couple of years passed. Then the regs got written, they knew what was up, and were able to adjust.

    All President Trump has managed to do is deregulate…given our worthless Congress full of Undocumented Democrats. (A name for the GOPe/RINOs I thought was clever when I read it somewhere on CTH a few months ago.)

    Anyhow, all he has done is to deregulate…and look at the impact of “just” deregulating!!!

  2. Yes, we are looking at it and loving it! Our Vanguard investment made $5000 in one month! Not bad for a couple of over- 70 retirees. Thank you, Mr. President1
