Trump’s economic boom bursts Democrats’ impeachment bubble

Charles Gasparino, New York Post

The country is experiencing something that was missing during the Obama presidency: an economic boom that has spread wealth beyond shareholders and the super-rich. One bright spot: The 2020 election will decided not by woke Democrats, or even Trump’s rabid support base. It will be decided by people in the middle, who are enjoying a strong economy and rising wages brought by policies that are the antithesis of the current mainstream Democratic Party orthodoxy. They may not like Trump’s comportment, but they like jobs. My guess, once the 2020 campaign starts in earnest, these voters will look at the Democrat alternatives, hold their nose and vote for Trump because it’s the economy, stupid.

Good Economic News Missing From The MSM Again

The U.S. trade deficit dropped to its lowest level in nearly 1-1/2 years in October, suggesting trade could contribute to economic growth in the fourth quarter and the number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, hitting their lowest level in seven months, indicating the labor market remains solid.

Post and liberal media again get it wrong about Trump economy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

The flat family income between 1999 and 2016 is exactly what makes the Trump surge in incomes so impressive. Yes, it is true, incomes barely budged during the Bush and Obama years — up less than $1,200. Does Mr. Trump get the blame for that lousy record too? If The Post and others in the liberal media really cared about middle-class families, they would be cheering these gains for scores of millions of households. But the left hates Mr. Trump, and so they feverishly root against the economy. It’s not that these facts aren’t true. It is that the left doesn’t want the good news to be true. The grand irony of all of this is these are the people who assign Trump Pinochhio noses.

Trump economy surges and Biden and Obama hog the credit

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

With the economy surging, all of a sudden, it is just Mr. Obama’s doing. The double standard here is so transparent that only someone suffering from TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — would miss it. If the economy were crashing today, the left would say that it’s all Mr. Trump’s fault. But with the economy doing quite well, Mr. Obama gets the credit. The biggest threat to the economy right now is that we repeal the Trump growth policies and return to Obamanomics. This is what Mr. Biden is promising, and if it comes to pass we will learn the bitter lesson that the good old days under Mr. Obama — really weren’t so good at all.

A Strong Economy Will Trump Impeachment Antics

David Catron, The American Spectator

The tightening labor market is a result of the dramatic increase in job creation fueled by Trump’s tax cuts and aggressive deregulation of business. Moreover, no matter how long impeachment lasts, the market forces already set in motion by Trump's policies will continue to produce economic growth, create jobs, and increase real wages. Unless he is caught on video eating a baby, the impeachment charade will eventually end, Trump will emerge stronger politically, and the economy will be growing apace. Then, on Election Day, the voters will decide whether they prefer paychecks or Democratic pie in sky. Most will vote for paychecks.

The August Jobs Report Is Not 'Mixed' It's Yuuge

Optimism is of course key to business expansion and based the third quarter’s Small Business Optimism Index, released mid-August by the National Federation of Independent Business, and today's employment figures, the American Small Business sector -- by itself the third-largest economy in the world -- remains very optimistic about the Trump economy.

Is the Fed Meddling in Our Elections?

The Federal Reserve isn’t the only Deep State institution that would like to affect the 2020 election in opposition to President Trump – Silicon Valley comes quickly to mind as an equally malign influence – however, as our friend Dr. Ron Paul observed in a recent  column, they are not a state within a state in the same way that the Federal Reserve is.

Media Talking The Economy Into A Recession To Defeat Trump

From our perspective we think Ainsley Earhardt of Fox and Friends had it right when she laid the blame for the growing talk of an economic recession on the media's attitude against Trump. “They do not want him to win again and they don’t like that the economy is doing well, apparently," said Ms. Earhardt.

Trump's economy has taken us from stagnation to boom -- That's a story that needs to be told

Andy Puzder, Fox News

An upsurge in freedom is driving a tremendous economic boom, lifting Americans from every class and race into a better life. In the first two years of the Trump presidency, we’ve gone from economic stagnation to economic boom. We are a freer people and a more prosperous nation with a rising economic tide that is lifting everyone’s boat. This is the power of capitalism, the most dynamic economic system mankind has ever known, when liberated from the restraints of oppressive government. Thank you, President Trump.

The Mojo of Trumponomics

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

One of the key principles of Trumponomics is that faster economic growth can help solve a multitude of other social and economic problems, from poverty to inner-city decline to lowering the national debt. No one thought that Trump could ramp up the growth rate to 3 percent or that his policies would boost federal revenues. But he is doing just that -- which is why all that the Democrats and the media want to talk about these days is Russia and Stormy Daniels.
