Trump’s reversal of failed Obama policies has created a booming economy

Andy Puzder, Fox News

Let’s be clear: The economy is booming because President Trump reversed President Obama’s economic policies – not because Trump furthered the Obama policies. President Obama raised taxes on businesses and individuals. He expanded the federal government’s size and power through dramatic increases in the number and scope of federal regulations. He discouraged domestic energy production – for example, refusing to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline and openly attempting to bankrupt the coal industry. The economy is now booming because President Trump took the opposite course.

Everything Is Trump’s Fault Is Fake News At Its Worst

The establishment media continues to be befuddled by their falling market share and polls that say Americans don’t trust them anymore. They need look no further than these three stories from the past week and the false narratives they promote for the answer to their problems of loss of trust and market share.

Fake Bombs -- Fake News

Strange is how the bombs seem to be addressed to people who don’t open their own mail, was this an elaborate plot to kill George Soros’ butler or get the mail room clerk at CNN? At this point in the investigation we don’t know who is responsible or what their motives are – all we can do is wait for law enforcement to do their work and for the evidence to reveal the perpetrator.

Is The Fed Trying To Tank The Trump Economy Before The Midterms?

The Federal Reserve has raised rates recently and expects to do so again soon. Translation for those not aligned with the Wall Street – Washington – Silicon Valley Axis: The Fed wants to stifle your wage growth and job mobility by establishing a so-called neutral level that neither spurs nor slows economic growth.

The Trump Doctrine

President Trump’s remarks at the UN were noteworthy, not so much for their radical departure from the interventionist policies of the two Bush presidents, and their rejection of the weakness and globalism of Obama, but for their return to the principles of George Washington.

This economy is definitely not Obama’s recovery

Stephen Moore, New York Post

One time during the campaign, Larry Kudlow, Steve Miller and I held an impromptu discussion with Trump about economic strategy. Miller summarized the game plan to Trump succinctly: “Donald, just look at all the things that Obama has done on the economy over the past eight years, and then do just the opposite.” Trump has done pretty much just that — which explains why the Trump boom is an everyday reminder of the Obamanomics failure.

Thanks, Obama! He reminds us why Donald Trump is president

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

The former president’s haughty finger-wagging reminds us that the Trump presidency is, in big part, a manifestation of a fracture that was the result of the systematic destruction of process and subversion of political standards by his administration and its allies. Obamacare was just one example. That is why I’m skeptical that the former will help Democrats (whom polls show doing well without him) more than unite conservatives heading into the midterms.

Obama re-emerges to remind voters why they elected Trump

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Mr. Obama’s return to the swamp follows an anonymous opinion article in The New York Times confirming the existence of a “Deep State” aimed at thwarting the will of American voters from inside the White House. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump remains focused on stoking the economy, expanding opportunity for all Americans, slashing government red tape, maximizing freedom for ordinary Americans and putting law-abiding constitutionalists onto the federal courts. Good luck, Mr. Obama. Looks like somebody jumped the Red Heifer.

9/11 Is Far From Over

As long as American politicians refuse to acknowledge that Islamism – not “terrorism” – is the ideology behind 9/11, and as long as our government refuses to battle that ideology, Islamists will continue to plot right here in America, and 9/11 will never be over.

Trump better take advantage of Obama’s underwhelming return

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump claimed he fell asleep during Obama’s speech, but now that Obama and Clinton are active again, the president better wake up to seize advantage of the ripe target they present. Releasing the documents is not only a campaign issue. This is fundamentally about transparency and piercing the armor of excessive secrecy that shrouds too much of what the government does in the name of the governed. Secrecy is especially galling when used to protect wrongdoing or simple embarrassment.

When funerals become politics

Victor Davis Hanson, Washington Times

Why are funerals of celebrities and politicians turning into extended and televised political rallies? Partly, the volatile Donald Trump and his frantic political and media critics are locked in a crude, no-holds-barred war against each other — waged everywhere nonstop. Partly, everything in America has become politicized. There is no escape from partisanship — not in movies, sitcoms, comic books, late-night TV, professional sports, social media, the Internet and 24/7 cable news. Not even the dead escape it.

Judge Tells New Citizens to ‘Take A Knee’

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

We are told Trump is a monstrous nativist. In fact, he is simply espousing principles of nationalism both parties at one time shared.If a liberal activist had asked, say, LBJ, or even JFK, to support professional athletes boycotting the American flag, they would have told the activist to go jump in a lake. Now the Dems are the party of flag boycotters in the NFL. It is pitiful, and dangerous. The breakdown in a nationalism common to both parties has given us a judiciary chock-a-block full of subversive hacks like LaShann DeArcy.

Federal Reserve Steps On Trump Economic Boom… Again

President Trump campaigned on policies that would boost the economy to 4 percent – or greater – growth. Now, just when America’s hard-pressed middle-income families are beginning to see the benefits of Trump’s policies, is not the time for the Fed to cool the economy.

How Far Left Can Democrats Go?

Democratic - Socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hardly the only radical Far-Left Democrat on the ballot this November, nor is she in many respects the most radical.

A Case Study in Obama-Trump Double Standards

David Catron, The American Spectator

Like most academics and journalists, Professor Nicholas Bagley lives in an insular world where the only debate occurs between the center-left and the loony left. In this fool’s paradise, Bagley’s flaccid critiques of Obama’s “well-meaning” violations of the law create the illusion of balance. That’s why he got his knickers in a knot when I highlighted his hypocrisy. In his world, dissent has long since been banished to outer darkness.

Another Willy Horton Moment: Iraqi “Refugee” in California Was Part of Terror Group

In another "Willy Horton moment" an ISIS murderer and longtime terrorist was picked-up in Sacramento, California after having been admitted to the United States under an Obama refugee program supported by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and other establishment Republicans.

More Than Half of Foreign Refugees Are on Taxpayer-Funded Food Stamps

John Binder, Breitbart

About 56 percent of households headed by foreign refugees who arrived in the U.S. between 2011 and 2015 are using taxpayer-funded food stamps. President Trump’s administration has historically reduced the annual inflow of foreign refugees. Under Trump’s “America First” agenda, the U.S. is on pace to accept less than 23,000 refugees for the Fiscal Year 2018. This would be the lowest yearly refugee admission in three decades.

Strzok Out, Ohr In

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

It is hilarious to see Hillary still whining about the alleged disadvantages she suffered in 2016, given that the entire Obama administration — from John Brennan at CIA to Sally Yates, Bruce Ohr, and Loretta Lynch, among others, at the Justice Department to Peter Strzok and Lisa Page at the FBI — had weaponized its most sensitive powers against her opponent. Yet she still couldn’t win. It can’t be repeated enough that one government did in fact collude with a U.S. campaign — ours, under an Obama administration that had stuck its Ohr in the water for Hillary.

There’s Nothing “Right” Or Conservative About Neo-Nazis

Just as they did in Nazi Germany, Neo-Nazis are fighting for the allegiance of working-class voters by blaming the loss of their upward mobility and quality of life on racial grievance, this only serves the interests of Leftwing politicians bent on dividing America along racial and ethnic lines.

Will The Fed Stomp On The Trump Economic Boom Right Before The Midterm Election?

An increase In the Fed interest rate could trigger a jump in unemployment claims and a drop in the stock market right before the election, quashing the efforts of the GOP to expand their majority in the Senate and hold or expand their majority in the House by campaigning on the booming economy.
