Even The Left Can’t Deny Trump’s Latest Accomplishment

That’s my President.

Let’s not kid ourselves:  President Donald Trump has faced an inordinate amount of adversity from his political opponents and Deep State operatives from the very beginning of his career in public service.

The very idea of his candidacy brought a number of liberal commentators to laugh out loud in the faces of those who gave him a shot at the Oval Office.

Well isn’t that just a hoot, Bill?

In his bid to deny and defy the liberal expectations, Donald Trump has roared into office, blazing a path that scorches the last several decades of “normal” Washington ethics.  He is the Citizen President that the Founding Fathers likely envisioned as the rightful steering apparatus for our bulky government.  His business acumen, of course, stands alone in the modern mythos of American wealth and has propelled the nation’s consumer confidence to incredible heights.

The numbers: Consumer confidence surged in February, the first month Americans started to benefit from the Trump tax cuts, to the highest level since November 2000. Evidently the recent selloff in U.S. stock markets did little to dampen their optimism.

The index rose to 130.8 this month from a revised 124.3 in January, the Conference Board said Tuesday. Economists polled by MarketWatch had forecast the index to read 127.3.

It’s the first time the index has surpassed 130 since Bill Clinton was president.

Even the left has a hard time denying basic mathematics here, making this win so much more savory for the President.

Now, being on a roll as he is, President Trump has a new set of numbers to brag about on Friday, in order to carry some swagger into Saturday and The Sabbath.

The U.S. economy added 164,000 jobs in April and unemployment ticked down to 3.9 percent, the lowest since before the bursting of the tech bubble at the end of the last century.

Economists had forecast nonfarm payrolls to grow by 192,000 and unemployment to tick down from 4.1 percent to 4.0 percent, according to Thomson Reuters. The unemployment rate had been stuck at 4.1 percent for sixth months.

April’s employment report showed that hiring has snapped back from a particularly weak March when the economy added just 135,000 jobs, according to the revised figure released Friday. Initially, March was reported to have added just 103,000 jobs. March’s weakness was likely due to harsh weather and payback from a particularly strong hiring month in February, which added 324,000 jobs after Friday’s revisions.

Boom.

So what does that mean, in the context of all things?

It means that a long-shot, Citizen President defeated the most well-oiled political machine in the history of America, and then, while enduring a special counsel-led investigation into an unverifiable espionage claim, and being blackmailed by the Russians with a sex tape, still had time to end the Korean War and roll back 30 years of unemployment losses.

That’s my President.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
