Trump's Economy?





Image may contain: 1 person, text

All that Steve Schmidt stated or states hit the nail squarely in the center. We have witnessed three very notable and historic GOPers leave the party (albeit it temporary) with the ascension of Trump to party leaders. The GOP is Trump's party and serves as a facilitating platform for Trump's obvious desire to be king.

Would it surprise you to know there is a Tea Party movement to move additional states to the point of falling-in in support of a US Constitutional Convention? If you have grown to recognize the anti-US Government core of the Tea Party, it shouldn't surprise you that with a retention both House of Congress this fall there could be a movement to fast-track a convention.  All things considered, would it surprise you if one significant conservative deliverable form such a convention would be to remove the current term-limits on serving in the White House?

Seem far-fetched? 

For anyone who finds the prospect far-fetched, I posit there are enough supporters across the US to offer those who love and support Trump an opportunity to serve in a way no other president has served. How does such a path become cleared and paved? Answer: Trump carnival barking lying and competent propaganda outlets akin to what follows.

The US has many citizens which I call LIVS (Low Information Voters). People who vote on a whim and people who vote based on information from sources which deal in "alternative facts" (as per Kelly Anne Conway).

The people pictured above aren't people who have any interest in facts.

While Trump offers daily opportunity to run accuracy analysis via fact-checking organizations, today's fact-check comes from PBS via the Associated Press. The article is narrowly focused on Trumps lies regarding the US economy.

PBS recently joined virtually all credible media in offering a fact check of Trump's claims regarding the US economy and Jobs. The PBS article is based on an Associated Press Fact-check. Linked here.

A few images which point to the real fix for the US economy and the reality of Trump's lies.  I do agree

If the "Y" Axis and the "X" Axis of the chart don't work for discerning the essence of the chart, here's another version.

While it should be necessary, I find it important to remind readers what provided the stimulus for the current economy. Did I use the word "Stimulus?" Stimulus as in the The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, nicknamed the Recovery Act and commonly referred to as the "Stimulus."


The following are old charts, but each shows the impetus for the US recovery while making a point which I will state after the charts.

Trump should be asking for celebration that he, to date, has not reversed the gains from a Post-Bush Obama economic team.  The public should remind Trump and his team, economic ups and downs take time; accepting not crashing the Obama economy is nothing more than Trumpism propaganda.

One last item.

Sen. Tim Scott Is The Only Republican To Sign On To The Anti-Lynching Bill



Pure Republicanism!

I often wonder why African-Americans support the GOP. Yes, I understand the need for some human beings to overstep all rational existence via reaching to differentiate themselves from another group they literally stand as utter fools. In the context of this past that Pother group: happens to be other African-Americans. As I move through the piece it is important to remind readers African-American who claim and affiliate with conservative Amercian refuse to refer to themselves in the commonly accepted vernacular of "African-American." You refer to them as "black" or do not refer to them with any skin color phraseology at all.  well, an ideal state which has not come to be in the US. 

A few examples are clear. Clarence Thomas and his confessed hatred of his "blackness' and year after year of disassociation from the black community while so diligently working to associate with the GOP he often makes himself appear pathetic. Another well-known example...


"I am an American. Black. Conservative," he said, punctuating each aspect of his self-identity. "I don't use African-American, because I'm American, I'm black and I'm conservative. I don't like people trying to label me. African- American is socially acceptable for some people, but I am not some people."
While the vast majority of "black" conservatives work to disassociate from African-American it should be noted they to the person claiming the GOP. The next and logical question is why doesn't the GOP work to at as a minimum to offer some degree of support for slam-dunk humane issues?  Before the following segment allow me a moment to answer the question.

First, the part, movement, and conservative America don't give one damn about Americans who are not white. The statement may appear harsh, but the reality is irrefutable. Another consideration is the basic paradigm of the Conservative mind: Ayn Randism and the reality of their "It doesn't affect me" psyche.  On a tertiary basis and probably the most influencing of them all, GOP politician will not go against the underlying core values of their constituents.  If the politician signs on with legislation or measures which only addresses the African-American community, the politician risks the wrath of all things conservative among their constituents. Basically, and in much more simple terms. Give the constituents what they want and avoid that which would raise their eyebrows. 

The need for an anti-lynching bill is a bit perplexing, but still a measure only one GOP Senator supported. The one supporters: Southern Carolina's Tim Scott.

Crooks & Liars



Sen. Tim Scott Is The Only Republican To Sign On To The Anti-Lynching Bill: Sen. Tim Scott could not explain why no other Republican in the Senate is supporting his anti-lynching legislation.

Well.....
