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.

President Trump Issues Warning About Pelosi Impeachment Logic; Says It Could Be Used To ‘Routinely Attack Future Presidents’

Published

on

On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi held her weekly press conference where she announced that the House Judiciary Committee would be going forward with the drafting of articles of impeachment against President Trump. The articles of impeachment are part of the final steps of the process before sending impeachment to the House for a full vote. President Trump responded to the news of the articles being drafted by noting on Twitter that the kind of logic being employed by Democrats like Pelosi could potentially be used against presidents in the future. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “The Do Nothing, Radical Left Democrats have just announced that they are going to seek to Impeach me over NOTHING. They already gave up on the ridiculous Mueller ‘stuff,’ so now they hang their hats on two totally appropriate (perfect) phone calls with the Ukrainian President,” he said. “This will mean that the beyond important and seldom used act of Impeachment will be used routinely to attack future Presidents. That is not what our Founders had in mind. The good thing is that the Republicans have NEVER been more united. We will win!” Trump added. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1202606537342160896 No specific timeline for the articles, nor what exactly they would contain were brought up during Pelosi’s press conference, but Democrats are hoping for a chance to vote on them before the House adjourns on December 20.

Democratic Congressman Hints At Possible Continuous Impeachment Efforts, Says ‘We Can Impeach Again’

Published

Texas Rep. Al Green is not helping to dispel the notions held by conservatives that the whole impeachment inquiry House Democrats have launched against President Trump is a coup designed to help them get revenge for Hillary’s loss in 2016 with his latest comments suggesting impeachment could be a continuous process. On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made an announcement stating the House Judiciary Committee would be drafting up articles of impeachment against the president as part of the final steps before taking the measure to the House for a full vote. If the House succeeds in voting to impeach President Trump, the process will then head over to the Republican-controlled Senate. As of right now, there’s very little support available to actually convict Trump of any wrongdoing, so chances are high that impeachment will fail in the Senate. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Green claimed that shouldn’t dissuade Democrats from moving rapidly toward impeachment. During a speech on the House floor on Thursday, Green reminded his colleagues that there is “no limit” to the number of times they can impeach the president. “The Constitution allows a president to be impeached more than once,” Green explained. “If we impeach now, or at some time in the near future, for one issue that we dearly should, then we find later that the president has other issues that merit impeachment, we can impeach again. There is no limit on the number of times.” Green noted that he doesn’t believe Trump should be impeached “needlessly,” despite having forced a vote on impeachment three times before the current effort to remove Trump following his controversial phone call with Ukrainian leaders. Green further stated, “Every time I call it to the attention of this House, there was purpose and reason behind it,…
