As Economists, Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. continue to try and convince the American people that we are one step away from being in a full blown recession, the Economic Train decides to piss and crap on their narrative.

I was busy at work preparing for a school visit and wasn’t able to see the report when it came out at 8:30 AM. Before leaving for my visit, I checked Twitter. I was so happy to see Daughn’s tweet to me. It literally brought tears of joy after reading it.

The Forgotten Men and Women are no longer forgotten because of PDJT.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics highlights an awesome jobs report for February with 273,000 new jobs added. We also had an upward revision of 85,000 job in December and January. Total new jobs with revisions 358,000.

As I shared a few weeks ago, the housing market is absolutely exploding. With that being said, the construction sector added 42,000 jobs in February. We saw a similar gain in January (+49,000). In February, employment gains occurred in specialty trade contractors (+26,000) and residential building (+10,000).

From the link above:

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 273,000 in February, and the unemployment rate remains at 3.5 percent. Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased by 3.0 percent.

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for December was revised up by 37,000 from +147,000 to +184,000, and the change for January was revised up by 48,000 from +225,000 to +273,000. With these revisions, employment gains in December and January combined were 85,000 higher than previously reported.

From the article linked above:

  • Nonfarm payrolls rose by 273,000 in February vs. a 175,000 estimate, while the unemployment rate edged lower to 3.5%.
  • Job gains were widespread, with health care adding 57,000 to lead the way.

The Labor Department reported Friday that the U.S. economy added 273,000 new jobs during the month, while the unemployment rate was 3.5%, matching its lowest level in more than 50 years.

The January and February gains tied for best month since May 2018.

Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for payroll growth of 175,000 and a 3.5% jobless level. Average hourly earnings grew by 3% over the past year, in line with estimates, while the average work week, considered a key measure of productivity, nudged up to 34.4 hours.

There was more good news for the jobs market: The previous two months’ estimates were revised higher by a total of 85,000. December moved up from 147,000 to 184,000, while January went from 225,000 to 273,000. Those revisions brought the three-month average up to a robust 243,000 while the average monthly gain in 2019 was 178,000.

It had to absolutely KILL the MSM to have to talk about the Jobs Report.

Look at the latest forecast from the Atlanta Federal Reserve for the 1st Quarter real GDP rate.

Yesterday, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow discussed the jobs report, coronavirus fears, the Federal Reserve, and the steps our President’s administration is taking to address the virus.

Prior to departing the White House for a visit with Tennessee disaster workers and victims, our President signed an $8.3 billion appropriations bill funding the ongoing efforts to combat Coronavirus.

Yesterday, Vice President Pence and the COVID-19 Task Force held a press briefing to update the media on the latest developments. VP Pence shared that tests delivered to the cruise ship “Grand Princess”, anchored off the coast of California, have resulted in 21 persons testing positive (19 were crew members).

Additionally, in a private-public contract agreement, private medical testing companies Quest Diagnostics and Lab-Corp will be assisting the government with rapid test manufacture and distribution.

Here are some shorter video clips:

Our President announced that Representative Mark Meadows will be joining the administration as White House Chief of Staff.

I am sad to see Mick Mulvaney go but there is no one better than Mark for the job. He has been loyal to our President and has a deep love for our country.

From the article linked above:

President Trump on Friday announced that Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) would replace Mick Mulvaney as his chief of staff, becoming the fourth person to hold the position during Trump’s tenure.

By tapping Meadows, Trump is adding to his administration one of his closest allies in the House, who was a prominent defender of Trump during his impeachment and is often spotted at events on the White House and has traveled on Air Force One with the president.

Meadows called it an “honor” to be chosen by Trump to serve alongside him in the White House. He also described Mulvaney as a friend and a “fighter” and praised him for his leadership during a “tremendous period of accomplishment.”

Another day, another record!

From the article linked above:

Fox News’ town hall with President Trump on Thursday was the most-watched election town hall in cable news history, according to early Nielsen media research.

The event co-moderated by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum averaged 4.2 million viewers from 6:30-7:30 p.m. ET. The record-setting town hall dominated cable news, topping MSNBC’s 1.4 million viewers and CNN’s 1 million viewers combined.

Fox News also beat CNN and MSNBC combined in the key news demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging 744,000 during the town hall.

[…] FNC’s first town hall of the election cycle with Trump brought in double the audience of the same time slot from the first quarter of 2019. It also attracted another 2 million viewers during the encore presentation of Trump’s town hall at 11 p.m. ET.

These people are some of the DUMBEST on the face of the Earth. I guess they learned Math using common core.

I love the fact that our President’s reelection campaign is continuing to sue FAKE NEWS outlets. CNN is the latest!

From the article linked above:

President Trump’s re-election campaign filed a libel lawsuit against CNN on Friday for publishing “false and defamatory” statements about seeking Russia’s help in the 2020 election.

“The complaint alleges CNN was aware of the falsity at the time it published them but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign while misleading its own readers in the process… the campaign filed this lawsuit against CNN and the preceding suits against The New York Times and The Washington Post to hold the publishers accountable for their reckless false reporting and also to establish the truth,” Senior Legal Adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. Jenna Ellis told Fox News.
