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.

Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

The cringe cometh.

Published

Whoever is in charge of the story arc over at the White House is really excited about the Fourth of July. This is Independence Day, of course; the day in which we celebrate our decision to kick the British off of the continent over their ever-more-dastardly taxation of the colonies. But, for Team Biden, the 2021 version of Independence Day is going to bring us freedom from the coronavirus. President Joe Biden urged more Americans to get their coronavirus vaccine Wednesday, warning they still had “more to do” in order to celebrate Independence Day with their families. “To celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June,” Biden said. And his speech writers have been stewing on this hokey, on-the-nose narrative for a while. Biden first proposed the idea of allowing families and friends to gather for Independence Day on March 11, but he expressed concern on Wednesday the country was not ready. “If we let up now and stop being vigilant, this virus will erase the progress we’ve already achieved,” he said. We can only imagine what terrible puns and portmanteaus the Biden PR cabal will drop on us come July 4th: “One if by J&J, two if by Pfizer.” “If the Continental Army had has masks, so many fewer future Americans would have died from smallpox.” “You know what else is ‘Common Sense’?  Social distancing.” The cringe cometh, folks.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
