Recently some of my readers have asked me what exactly do I think the “Trump Effect” is, and that I can answer in one simple word, “patriotism.” Unabashed “patriotism” to such a degree that now under Trump’s stewardship America sees herself, “We the People,” and the Constitution coming first unlike that of the previous president. And while the left will always say the “Trump Effect” is a bad thing, that judgment is colored by their inability to define or even access his presidency fairly…their emotions always get the best of them. And that’s sad as the lefts hatred of Donald Trump the man will never allow them to see let alone acknowledge all the good he has done for our country.
So let’s start with but three most recent “good things” courtesy of the “Trump Effect.”
“Good thing” number one: the Trump economic juggernaut keeps rolling along and when a country’s economy is strong that equates to said country being able to successfully flex its muscle in every other aspect as well. Without a strong economy nothing else really matters, and under Donald Trump’s leadership America’s economy is booming no matter what the Democrats say.
Take the newest jobs numbers for example…the Department of Labor’s April 2019 jobs report shows that the U.S. added 263,000 new hires in April with the unemployment rate falling to 3.6%…the lowest it’s been in 50 years. And this easily beats Wall Street’s projection of 190,000 jobs being created and an unemployment rate of 3.8%.
Also, with wage growth being above three percent for the past nine consecutive months, we now see the average hourly pay rate reaching $27.77 no matter that the average work week dropped 0.1 hours to 34.4 hours. And with business services, construction, and health care jobs gaining the most in new hires…all key economic indicators now point towards both a robust and sustainable economic growth pattern being in place for quite a few years…enough years so to become the longest in U.S. history.
Not too shabby is it…and it’s all thanks to President Donald Trump
Now here’s something else not a bit too shabby…the all-important GDP increased by 3.2% during the first quarter of this year, while productivity jumped 3.6%…its best gain in five years. Even pending home sales rose by 3.8% in March leading into April, leaving open the possibility that interest rates will either be held in check or cut by up to a full percentage point…something President Trump would like to see.
So much for Pelosi and crew’s doom and gloom economic scenario for the good news continues on with economic data showing that during the first quarter of 2019, the U.S. Treasury showed an almost mind-blowing $160.3 billion surplus in April alone.
And what’s led to this economic success story…the “Trump Effect” called “tax cuts.” And yet many Democrat presidential wannabees…including so-called moderate Democrat Joe Biden and socialist proponent Bernie Sanders say they will repeal Trump’s tax cuts if they should become president.
Nothing like the Democrats wanting to replace what works with what doesn’t work.
And Democrats are also unhappy over President Trump’s doubling U.S. tariffs from 10% to 25% on $200 billion in Chinese imports into our country. Saying that this move, which took affect last Friday at 12:01 EST, will escalate a trade war between China and the U.S., what most of the Democrats don’t see is the big picture and the fact that tariffs work. How so…tariffs force U.S. businesses to shift away from Chinese to American suppliers thus hurting China’s economy which in turn forces the Chinese to make needed concessions…concessions benefiting our country which right now spends four times more on Chinese goods than China spends on our goods. And isn’t this what these tariffs are all about… making “Made in America” goal number one.. I know it is for our president…it should be for Democrats too
“Good thing” number two: America is flexing her military muscle once again, something long overdo thanks to our previous president. Last week President Trump approved the deployment of a Patriot missile defense battery and yet another warship to the Middle East due to what he rightfully said was “heightened Iranian readiness to conduct offensive operations” against both our and our allied countries…Israel most specifically. In fact, the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) had previously stated that since early May there has been an increased possibility of Iran or its regional proxies taking action against U.S. and partner interests. One just has to look to May 4th and 5th when 700 Iranian-supplied Hamas rockets reigned down on Israeli civilian population centers to see Trump’s words as truth.
And soon after MARAD’s announcement the Pentagon released its own statement that “the U.S. is postured and ready to defend U.S. forces and interests in the region” and that the USS Arlington…already scheduled to go to the region…would see its date being moved up so as to provide “enhanced command and control capabilities”… “capabilities” including said Patriot missiles…for the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group, already in position in the Red Sea. Also, a U.S. air force bomber task force, including B-52 bombers, recently arrived at the U.S. airbase Al Udeid in Qatar.
And Iran’s response to this show of force…Iran dismissed these moves as nothing but “psychological warfare” on Trump’s part designed to intimidate its government while Iran’s semi-official Isna news agency quoted senior Iranian cleric, Yousef Tabatabai-Nejad, as saying that the U.S. military fleet could be “destroyed with one missile.”
And so the chess game begins again but this time Iran is up against a chess master not an islamic condoner
But if truth be told ever since Trump rightfully removed the U.S. from Obama’s very bad nuclear deal…thank you President Trump…and reimposed even stricter sanctions on Iran…it was all but a given that Iran would eventually threaten to cut off all shipments of oil to the U.K., China, France, Germany and Russia if they didn’t help to “shield” Iran from said sanctions. And this showdown and show of force was not only destined to happen but had actually been escalating in the weeks prior to Trump’s now taking military action.
So as Iran continues to claim that its current actions are solely in response to what they call Trump’s “economically crippling sanctions,” and with Iran’s continuing bloviations to close the vital Strait of Hormuz through which almost a fifth of all the oil consumed globally passes…they now are threatening to target for reprisal commercial vessels, oil tankers, and U.S. military vessels in both the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. This leaves one to wonder if the mullahs really are stupid enough to believe that a man like President Trump will just sit back and do nothing…not a chance as Iran is clearly bating the U.S. for war… with Israel of course being target number one.
But Iran best not play this game with President Trump for it will not end well for them as we and the military “Trump Effect” will see to that. Bye-bye mullahs…enjoy your 72 virgins… enjoy them all in hell
“Good thing” number three: has the “Trump Effect” now seeing a rightful Republican backlash…a backlash that would never dare be seen when Barack HUSSEIN Obama was president…a backlash against none other than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who, on the request of Texas Democrat Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, had the unmitigated gall to allow a well-known radical anti-Semite and an avowed Hamas supporter, an imam by the name of Omar Suleiman, to deliver the daily prayer before the House of Representatives late last week
Claiming her decision regarding Suleiman came after being “dismayed” about the controversy surrounding Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments, pray tell how does a prayer by Palestinian activist Omar Suleiman…founder and president of the radical Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research, a supporter of the anti-Israel “Boycott, Divest and Sanction” (BDS) movement who also aligns himself with the Muslim Brotherhood and its American “front group” CAIR…exactly how does that or any prayer right any wrong spewed from Ilhan Omar’s mouth…simply it does not nor were Suliman’s words ever meant to
In fact, Suleiman’s words were planned to make things worse, which was obviously Nancy Pelosi’s goal as her recent actions or lack thereof are proving that she herself is an anti-Semite. Why else would she allow the very man who relishes in not only pushing anti-Semitic tropes about how Israel controls U.S. foreign policy…which it does not…and who continuously whines that Israel is the 51st state of the U.S…foolhardy words indeed…yet words I cannot find being condemned by House Speaker Pelosi.
And even though it’s after the fact, some prominent muslims are now questioning Pelosi’s decision including muslim reformer Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, who stated that Omar Suleiman “represents the Islamist establishment,” adding, “This ‘scholar’ is not a moderate…” and that, “It is absurd if not bigotry to think a man who holds these positions represents most American Muslims.”
Well Dr, Jasser, while Omar Suleiman might not represent most American muslims he surely does represent Pelosi and the other anti-Semitic sorts in Congress who, like him, hate both Israel and the Jewish people. And in her allowing this slap in the face to American Jews and our ally Israel, Pelosi has willingly allowed the halls of Congress to be forever stained.
I think New York Rep. Lee Zeldin (@RepLeeZeldin) said it best when he tweeted that it was, “Totally unacceptable that @SpeakerPelosi had Omar Suleiman give the opening prayer yesterday in the House. He compares Israel to the Nazis & calls them terrorists, supports Muslim Brotherhood, incites violence calling for a Palestinian antifada & the end of zionism, etc. Bad call pic.twitter.com/bZakjQVwsJ.”
Bad call Ms. Pelosi…very bad call indeed.
And as we knew would happen when anyone dare call a Democrat or a muslim to task, when Suleimen was questioned by the media regarding those now speaking out against his giving the invocation, he blamed the brouhaha not on his own radical islamist and anti-Semitic views, but on a campaign waged by “creepy obscure right wing sites [designed] to flood the internet with vicious smears.
And know it’s only a matter of time before the Democrats twist the truth and blame Trump himself for the backlash against both Pelosi and Suleiman. It always seems to be that way when Democrats and muslims get knocked down by thesteamroller known as the “Trump Effect.”
And so these are but three of the current “good things” courtesy of the “Trump Effect.” It really is sad that most Democrats cannot see all the “good things” President Trump has done, but then again maybe some Democrats can…maybe it’s just that their blindly followed political ideologies will not allow them to publicly acknowledge it. There’s always the privacy of the 2020 voting booth…we can only hope that those Democrats acknowledge Trump’s “good things” in the end.
