As Trump's World Turns: Manufacturing, China, UKraine, Poling

A Case for a Lack of Leadership

With record numbers in unemployment, there is a hidden disease in the US economy. The disease is manufacturing employment and it is directly attributable to Trump's utter ill-advised tariff policies.


How about another perspective...Manufacturing?

From the US economy, we move to Trump's week in hell with invitations to foreign leaders to assist in chasing the dragon unsubstantiated allegations against Joe Biden and his son. 

Now watch and listen to 40 seconds of over-the-top stoogism and sycophancy. The Florida Senator knows better.

If you think Trump working on behalf of Putin (in Ukraine) while offering illegal politicking at home isn't taking a toll, take a look at his beloved poll numbers. 

It seems Putin's marionettes of Trump isn't boding well for many Americans.

White House Twitter Update: An Impoving Society

As we move through the first quarter of the year (Q1), we thought it time to refresh on a few accomplishments from the White House.

The following sets of tweets are from the White House Twitter page. Rightwing social media would take great exception to each of the tweets, the facts are facts and facts are insulted from rightwing propaganda and Obama derangement.

Enjoy the ride if you are open to credible information and if you are an American who simply wants a better society for all.  Grab the tissue if you are opposite the open minded American from the previous sentence. The tweets will induce heartburn.

How about a quick 2016 Budget visit....

We will published a much more in-depth set of data related to the improving economy in a few days. In the meantime, don't listen to the GOP and Fox News, you world is much better-off than with any Republican in the White House. If you had given the Democrats a shot at retaining a Senate Majority and gaining on the tea party laden House, your economy would improve at a greater pace.

Impeach Obama? How About An Obama (Performance) Twitter Tree?

Image via Vogue
As the nation moves towards the GOP Lawsuit against the Nation's 44th President, (the first such legal action in US History), I thought it might be a good idea to post up an Obama Twitter tree. I thought about labeling the following a GOP landmine, but the splendor of a beautiful tree in full blossom overtook my inclination to mock the GOP.

I am also posting the Tree, in response to  reports of 35% of a polled set of voters indicated a desire for an impeachment proceeding against the president. It is important to remember reports of one third of the nation desirous of impeachment is a false facade side effect of public polling, The data is a good and reliable as the tooling methodology and I  have seen enough since 2007 to lead me to hold the 35% in proper perspective. I do not believe a full one third of voters wish an impeachment process. It is important to remember, both John McCain, Mitt Romney and Eric Cantor fell victim to polling data.

With my perspective as a guide and conservative derangement flourishing like weeds, I dedicate the following Obama Twitter Tree.....

This one goes out to the one I love.......

Let's anchor our tree here.  We will revisit the  Obama (like) Tannenbaum with perspective on Housing, Energy, much less War, and social justice next time we decorate our Tree.

A Record DIJA, DIJA Broke 15,000 And A Record S&P And Other Economic Indicators

Enjoy while the caffeine kicks-in!!!!

A few economic indicators to go along with your Sumatra,  Kopi Luwak IndonesianKenya AA, Tanzanian, French Roast, Kona Coast, 'Black Ivory' [Thai Elephant Dong],  Jamaica Blue Mountain, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Costa Rican, Espresso,  Moyobama Peruvian Organic, Indonesian Blend, Coffee Latte, Kauai Blend (often bitter), Colombian Red Lips, or your Folgers 100% Colombian.

One a day when the DIJA broke 15,000 for the first time in market history and the S & P continues to flirt with record performance, I feel it is time to lay out a few economic indicators.  We post economic indicators here TPI from time to time, but never have we had the privilege of laying out a piece with such good market data. It should noted the the 7.5% unemployment is commendable  but not even close to consider healthy for the US economy.  

We consistently hear about a weak economy.  Well, sure the economy is not booming, but consistent reports on news media such as CNN and Fox News would lead viewers to believe a another recession is looming.

Despite incessant comment about "weak economy" the financial indicators are hovering at record levels.


Jobless claims fall to 5-year low

And there’s this from Steve Benen at The Maddow Blog:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) @AnnalynKurtz May 2, 2013: 9:46 AM ET jobless claims 050213
After rising as high as 670,000 during the jobs crisis, weekly jobless claims are at less than half that level. April Jobs Numbers jobs 050313
First-time claims for unemployment benefits fell to their lowest level in five years last week, signaling fewer layoffs in the economy. 
About 324,000 people filed initial claims, the Labor Department said Thursday. The report was better than expected on all accounts. Economists were anticipating an increase in claims, but instead, the report showed claims had declined by 18,000 from the prior week, marking the lowest level since January 2008. 
Robert Oak, correctly states, unemployment in the nation is a lingering economy killer (my words). The ticking lower and lower by .01% brings little solace to the very high number of people actually unemployed. In fact, Oaks, like all who write and speak about the economy focus on that group of people who are not looking for work. I hear some referring to those people as the chronically unemployed. I posit many of those people are the "frustrated who prefer to work, but have no opportunity."
