Victory: Unemployment Sinks to Lowest Rate Since the Year 2000

Published

on

While President Trump continues to be hounded by liberals and blamed for every bad thing that happens under the sun, the media seems to conveniently be avoiding any sort of reporting of the good work his policies are accomplishing.

Like how the economy has added 164,000 jobs in the month of April and the unemployment rate has dropped to 3.9 percent. This is the lowest it’s been since the year 2000, which was just before the tech bubble burst.

What’s even more striking is that this particular figure for job growth was actually lower than what was anticipated, yet still managed to reduce the unemployment rate. Economists had estimated that close to 192,000 jobs would be created and that the unemployment rate would drop to four percent.

Less jobs were created than predicted, yet more people are back to work. Seems strange at first, doesn’t it?

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.

The upward revision of March’s numbers may help explain why April’s numbers fell short of expectations. The 30,000 or so jobs that weren’t created in April were actually created earlier in the year.

The black unemployment rate fell to a seasonally adjusted 6.6 percent, the lowest figure on record. Because the white unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.6 percent, the gap between white and black unemployment narrowed.

Job growth was broad-based. Professional services, manufacturing, mining, and health care all added jobs. Manufacturing saw employment grow by 24,000 jobs. Over the past 12 months, manufacturing has added 245,000 jobs.

The real question we should all be asking here, is why in the world is the media not spending as much time talking about this fantastic growth?

The answer is really quite simple. Anything that remotely paints President Trump in a positive light doesn’t fit with the “let’s get him booted from office” narrative these news outlets are pushing, thus it doesn’t receive any significant air time.

Shouldn’t each holder of the Oval Office be judged on their own merits? Shouldn’t respect and honor be given where it is due?

Unfortunately, that’s not the way things are anymore, but hopefully they’re headed in that direction.

Texas Governor Signs Order Barring Further Mask Mandates

BOOM!

Published

on

Around the nation, medical officials are beginning to express concerns about the proliferation of the “delta” variant of the coronavirus, and just what it could mean for the unvaccinated among us. These worries may fall on deaf ears, however, as the current state of vaccine reluctancy seems to suggest that those who remain unvaccinated today are almost exclusively doing so by choice. And so, given the highly contagious nature of the “delta” variant, combined with the fact that we’ve vaccinated just about everyone who wants to be, the CDC is suggesting that even those of us who’ve been inoculated should return to wearing masks in certain situations. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is not having it, however, and he’s not going to let any of Texas’ other politicians refute him, either. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, on Thursday signed an executive order prohibiting cities and other government entities in the state from enacting vaccine requirements or mask mandates to protect against the coronavirus, even as the virus’s more contagious delta variant drives another surge in covid-19 cases in Texas. Abbott’s order applies to any government entities receiving state funds, including counties, cities, school districts, public health authorities and government officials. He also declared that there be “no covid-19-related operating limits for any business or other establishment” in the state in order to “ensure the ability of Texans to preserve livelihoods while protecting lives.” The move comes as fellow Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced that he would allow parents to make decisions regarding whether or not their children would need to wear masks in school, similarly stripping that power from local bureaucrats.

Secret Service Reduced to Starbuck’s Runs with Hunter Biden’s Wife

And just wait until you see what it cost the taxpayers!

Published

For an elite law enforcement unit such as the Secret Service, there has to come a point in which you wonder what it is that you’re even doing sometimes. These are the folks who would take a bullet, very literally, for our executive branch, yet some within the first family seem to think that they’re also to be used as errand boys. Hunter Biden’s wife was spotted being escorted by Secret Service agents on a Malibu, California coffee run Tuesday. Melissa Cohen, mother of Hunter’s 1-year-old son Beau, was spotted grabbing an iced coffee at a Starbucks near the couple’s California home accompanied by Secret Service agents. One agent stayed in the car behind the wheel while another agent opened the door for Cohen as she returned to the car holding the iced coffee. And just wait until you see what this coffee run cost the taxpayers… The Daily Mail calculated that since top agents earn $148,437 per year, which translates to an hourly rate of $71.36, the two-hour coffee excursion had a taxpayer-funded price tag of up to $285.44. The couple has been given 24-hour Secret Service protection at their $20,000 a month Malibu home. Hunter Biden has long stood accused of benefiting unduly from his father’s political clout, and it appears that perhaps this sort of sentiment is now spreading throughout the family.
