Over the past few years, the American economy has shifted from a state of stagnant growth, into a booming and prosperous American economic machine! In fact, the overall, job creation over the past year saw 2.6 million new jobs and 2.3 million in 2016. Therefore, since President Trump took office two years ago, he has added about 5 million new jobs. A huge accomplishment for any President in two short years!
In fact, not only is the economy surging to what many experts say is unprecedented highs, but former Federal Reserve Governor Kevin Warsh said on CNBC that…
“The Booming US economy may soon be the ‘strongest since 1999’. In fact, most economists ‘never thought the economy could grow this fast’”
Kevin Warsh, Former Federal Reserve Governor
As a result of booming U.S. economy, it added 134,000 jobs in September, according to Friday’s jobs numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Consequently, the unemployment rate fell 0.2 points to 3.7 percent, which pushed unemployment to the lowest rate since 1969…49 YEARS AGO. Also, September was the sixth straight month for the unemployment rate to be below 4%. The Wall Street Journal said that economists expected the rate to drop to 3.8 percent, but job numbers for August were revised upwards from 201,000 to 270,000. Combine that with Hurricane Florence, which put a lot of Americans out of work. Combine that with welfare claims hitting almost a 50-year-low as well, and the Trump economy begins to look extremely impressive, as well as astounding to most economists.
According to the Wall Street Journal, all indications are pointing to a stronger labor market that can absorb new workers quickly, with the average weekly wages rising at an impressive 3.4 percent over last year. These are the pocketbook issues that actually make a difference in the lives of voters, which is likely why America is increasingly supportive of the President, as his approval hit 51% this week.
So what is behind these incredible numbers? So far in 2018, the average number of jobs created each month is 16% higher than 2017, which indicates that President Trump’s and the GOP’s tax cuts are truly creating an economic boom, and a massive surge of jobs throughout the nation, not only for the average American, but for minorities as well. In fact, black and Hispanic unemployment rates are at record lows, with an unprecedented number of job opportunities. In addition to low unemployment rates, Americans wages are increasing at the fastest rate in more than a decade, as it rose 50%, which is faster than eight years ago under the Obama Administration. Even more impressive, is the fact that while the unemployment rate has plummeted by 20%, the market has seen an infusion of less-skilled workers.
Another good key indicator reveals that our nation is economically on the right path due to the fact that not only top line wage growth is increasing, but post-tax wages are growing even faster, primarily due to the Republican tax cuts taking effect. Therefore, Americans are able to receive higher take-home pay, plus extra money in their paycheck, since less is being taken out by the federal government. Economists credit the higher wages to the new double standard deduction, doubled child tax credit, and lower taxes that took effect in 2018. If you combine that with the 20% small business tax deduction, which is contributing Americas incredibly robust labor market, as businesses have more money to reinvest in their businesses, and ultimately their employees.
Furthermore, President Trump is bringing American jobs and money back from foreign nations like China, Japan, Mexico, and other nations around the globe. Opponents to his hard-line stance on trade had criticized the Administration, saying that it would cost American jobs, but due to the Presidents incredible negotiation skills, timing, and our robust economy, after four months of the tariffs taking effect, there continue to be no indications that the tariffs are costing American jobs.
In fact, job data is showing that the businesses that critics said would lose jobs have actually gained jobs, each and every consecutive month. Economic sectors like metals and manufacturing, where manufacturing jobs grew by 18,000 jobs in September, 5,000 in August, and 22,000 in July.
Now, as a result of the robust economy, more money in Americans pockets, and the unprecedented unemployment levels, it has led American consumer confidence to hit record highs. Especially since the economy grew by more than 4% in the second quarter, and is on track to grow by an astounding 3% or likely even 4% again. in the third quarter. Those numbers have not been seen since 2005. Top that with the fact that the stock market has gone up 40% since President Trump was sworn in as President in 2016.
In addition, the Presidents anti-illegal immigration policies have had a huge impact on the American economy as the average pay for blue collar jobs increases more rapidly than white-collar jobs! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that the average pay in the United States grew by 3% last year, while “management, professional, and related” jobs gained only 2.5%. Meanwhile, there was a 4.2 percent rise in wages for “sales and related” employees, a 3.7 percent rise for “production, transportation, and material moving” workers, a 3.4 percent rise for “trade, transportation, and utilities” workers, and a 4.1% gain for “leisure and hospitality” workers. Therefore, although college grads saw wage gains, it was at a slower pace than the blue-collar American workers.
This marks the first time that blue-collar workers in America have outpaced white-collar workers since 1990. Part of the reason has to do with an immigration bill that passed that year and was signed into law by George H.W. Bush. The immigration bill tripled the inflow of legal immigrants to almost 700,000 each year, which filled the labor market with blue-collar foreigners. Congress and the President claimed that it would expand the U.S. markets, and boost the stock market. Sadly, it also suppressed blue-collar wages, and ultimately hurt the American workers, especially the middle class and poor in America!
Now, as President Trump’s “Hire American” policies have led to a booming economy, Democrats claim that President Trump’s job growth isn’t enough, as they demand a so-called ‘moral’ economy. In fact, the Democrats running for president in 2020 are saying that the rapid job growth and low unemployment under President Trump aren’t enough, and say that America needs to shift gears and move towards a new “moral” economy! Therefore, Democrats have decided that American’s prosperity and well-being are not enough and that Socialism is the only true way to implement morality, as they strive to make everyone equally poor, equally desperate, and equally enslaved to an all-powerful political class in America!
Today, Democrats across the nation are defecting from the embracement of freedom and prosperity, towards a nation of enslavement and utterly crippling poverty! In fact, even former Vice President and 2020 Presidential Candidate Joe Biden said…
“What happened to a moral responsibility, to a moral capitalism? I’m not looking for charity. Business is not in business to be in charity, it’s to make money. But the last dime does not dictate what corporate responsibility should be. And look, I don’t begrudge anybody making a million or hundreds of millions of dollars, I really don’t. But I do think there’s some shared responsibility and it’s not being shared fairly for hard-working, middle-class, working-class people.”
In other words, Biden, as well as a majority of Democrats, have written off the ‘American Dream’, and instead are pushing not only racial divisions, but political, gender, sex, and even economic division as well, as they demonize anyone who dares oppose Socialist policies, as they fight to end to the freedoms that so many Americans take for granted today. Furthermore, if you oppose Socialism or Socialist policies, then you are immoral, racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, and so forth!
Senator Kamala Harris criticized those who claim President Trump’s economy is helping Americans when she sounded like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and said…
“Yeah people are working. They are working two or three jobs. We have to address these truths and do it in a way that recognizes that there is some course correction that needs to happen.”
Meanwhile, Cory Booker told an NPR-affiliate reporter in New Hampshire that people aren’t necessarily getting ahead just because of the sheer number of jobs available. He said…
“Well, working Americans would tell you that the dignity of work is being stripped from them. Working Americans would tell you they’re working harder than their parents and falling further behind. Working Americans will tell you that while their salaries may moderately have gone up, what’s gone up more is the cost of prescription drugs, cost of child care, the cost of college.”
However, 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidates are not the only ones knocking the incredible success of the Trump economy, as the DNC Committee Chairman Tom Perez told NBC News that…
“What Democrats are fighting for is prosperity that is shared. What Democrats are fighting for is a moral capitalism, a capitalism that understands that, when we all succeed, we all succeed.”
It is reminiscent of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont’s comments to CBS News, as he said…
“You got three people who own more wealth than the bottom half of America. That is wrong. That’s morally wrong, in my view. That is bad economics.”
It is interesting since it is now the Political Elites who not only control the Democrat National Party itself, but many of the Democrats are billionaires including Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MASS), New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D-NY), ex-Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, and a number of other Democrats in government!
Also, Democrats tout their so-called ‘moral capitalism’, which is far from actual capitalism, being their policies and principles embrace Socialism, and even Marxism itself!
President Trump spoke against Socialism in the State of the Union this year, and in Miami last Monday, as he made it clear that he wasn’t only addressing the atrocities that Socialist Venezuela was imposing upon the people of their nation, but he was speaking of the Socialists that have permeated the DNC and our federal government today! He said of the Maduro government that…
“The tyrannical socialist government nationalized private industries and took over private businesses. They engaged in massive wealth confiscation, shut down free markets, suppressed free speech, and set up a relentless propaganda machine, rigged elections, used the government to persecute their political opponents, and destroyed the impartial rule of law.”
Then, the President added…
“Socialism, by its very nature, does not respect borders. It does not respect boundaries or the sovereign rights of its citizens or its neighbors. It’s always seeking to expand, to encroach, and to subjugate others to its will.There are those trying to implement socialism right here in the United States.”
When he addressed his supporters in El Paso Texas, he said…
“So I again say to you, and I say it for the world to hear, America will never be a socialist country!”
, D-Calif., told reporters Tuesday at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.
Meanwhile, Democrats try to play both sides of the fence, as they embrace socialized medicine, socialized economics, environmental Socialism, and even the Green New Deal, which is Marxism wrapped up with a bow! However, when President Trump points out their Marxist ideals, they try to deny their ideological agenda! In fact, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said…
“I am not a democratic socialist!”
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said that Socialism…
“could be a possibility in the future. I’m just looking at something that will work now.”
However, the President was right when he said in Miami that…
“Socialism promises unity, but it delivers hatred and it delivers division. Socialism is a sad and discredited ideology rooted in the total ignorance of history and human nature, which is why socialism, eventually, must always give rise to tyranny, which it does.”
Sadly, it doesn’t matter to Democrats what the President says, or what history, or the facts, or precedent shows! Instead, they only care that the use any means to implement their radical Marxist ideals, whether it be through radicalized education, environmental socialism, Fabian-Socialism, or Transformational Socialism. After all, to the now Marxist Democrats of today, the ends justify the means, no matter how many Americans suffer the price of their arrogance, racism, and ignorance!
