PRESIDENT TRUMP’S BEST YET … TRUMP BOXED DEMOCRATS INTO A MUST APPLAUD MOMENT …
Last nights State of the Union address by President Donald Trump was a thing of beauty. A masterfully written speech and delivered even better, although maybe about 15 minutes too long, was his finest hour. Trump had Democrats eating out of the palm of his hand and surprisingly cheering and applauding in certain moments and boxing Democrats into a terrible optic when not standing for the phenomenal economic data and calling for a law to end late term
In just over two years since the election, we have launched an unprecedented economic boom — a boom that has rarely been seen before.
We have created 5.3 million new jobs
and importantly added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs –something which almost everyone said was impossible to do, but the fact is, we are just getting started.
Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades, and growing for blue collar workers, who I promised to fight for, faster than anyone else.
Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps.
The U.S. economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world.
Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in half a century.
African-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded.
Unemployment for Americans with disabilities has also reached an all-time low.
More people are working now than at any time in our history — 157 million.
In all, President Trump owned the room and pointed out the state of our Union is fanatic. There has been bipartisan laws passed, however, if you were to listen to the 90% negative news coverage from the liberal main steam media, you might have learned things for the first time last night. Trump hit a gran slam.
TRUMP: “So let’s work together, compromise, and reach a deal that will truly make America safe. As we work to defend our people’s safety, we must also ensure our economic resurgence continues at a rapid pace. No one has benefited more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58% of the newly created jobs last year.”
TRUMP: “You weren’t supposed to do that. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before.
TRUMP: “Don’t sit yet. You are going to like this. And exactly one century after Congress passed the constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote, we also have more women serving in the Congress than at any time before.”
TRUMP: “That’s great.”
JUST HOW INSANE AND RIDICULOUS ID THE LEFT …
As reported at the UK Standard, in an article from the NY Times, professor Daniel Pollack-Pelzner criticized the iconic movie Mary Poppins for being racist in the scene where Mary Poppins joins Dick Van Dyke’s Bert to dance on a rooftop for the classic song Step in Time where her face gets dirty from the soot from Bert. Dude really? Bert was a chimney sweep you fool. This wasn’t black face, it was soot. But not for the irrational left. They are incapable of seeing a harmless moment in a movie where Mary Poppins wasn’t flirting with black face, but instead had soot in their faces from being a chimney!!! You on the left really need mental help. This is what liberal intolerance and ignorance looks like.
Note to the LEFT, Mary Poppins isn’t racist in black face, however, you might want to question Democrat Virginia governor Ralph Northam. He has much explaining to do and some resigning.
Step in Time from Mary Poppins
The classic family film Mary Poppins has been branded racist by a US academic who accuses Dame Julie Andrews of ‘blacking up’ with soot while dancing with chimney sweeps.
In a piece for the New York Times, Professor Daniel Pollack-Pelzner criticises one of the film’s iconic moments, when Mary Poppins joins Dick Van Dyke’s Bert to dance on a rooftop for the classic song Step in Time.
He writes: “When the magical nanny (played by Julie Andrews) accompanies her young charges, Michael and Jane Banks, up their chimney, her face gets covered in soot, but instead of wiping it off, she gamely powders her nose and cheeks even blacker.”
“This might seem like an innocuous comic scene if Travers’s novels didn’t associate chimney sweeps’ blackened faces with racial caricature. “Don’t touch me, you black heathen,” a housemaid screams in “Mary Poppins Opens the Door” (1943).”
“We’re in on the joke, such as it is: These aren’t really black Africans; they’re grinning white dancers in blackface. It’s a parody of black menace; it’s even posted on a white nationalist website as evidence of the film’s racial hierarchy.”
JOBS, JOBS, JOBS … Continuing to make America great again!!!
304,000 JOBS!!! The Trump economy continues despite all the nah saying from Democrats and liberal media. 304,00 jobs were created in January 2019 shattering expectations. Economists had predicted a gain of 170,000. Not even close. One has to wonder these days how they are predicting these estimates. Also , the Labor Force Participation at Trump-Era High of 63.2% in January. The labor force participation rate increased a tenth of a point to 63.2 percent, the highest it’s been on President Trump’s watch.
- Job growth in January shattered expectations, with nonfarm payrolls surging by 304,000, the Labor Department says.
- Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had expected payrolls to rise by 170,000.
- There were revisions. December’s big initially reported gain of 312,000 was knocked all the way down to 222,000, while November’s rose from 176,000 to 196,000.
- The unemployment rate ticked higher to 4 percent, a level where it had last been in June, a likely effect of the shutdown, according to the department.
Job growth in January shattered expectations, with nonfarm payrolls surging by 304,000 despite a partial government shutdown that was the longest in history, the Labor Department reported Friday.
The unemployment rate ticked higher to 4 percent, a level where it had last been in June, a likely effect of the shutdown, according to the department. However, officials said federal workers generally were counted as employed during the period because they received pay during the survey week of Jan. 12. On balance, federal government employment actually rose by 1,000.
Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had expected payrolls to rise by 170,000 and the unemployment rate to hold steady at 3.9 percent.

Howard Schultz is Just too Sane for today’s Democrats … “I’m not a Democrat,” Schultz told the ‘Morning Joe’ panel. “I don’t affiliate myself with the Democrat Party who is so far left”
TODAY’S DEMOCRAT PARTY IS JUST BSC …
From the New York Post, is wannbe third party 2020 presidential candidate Howard Schultz too sane for today’s Democrat party? The Democrat party has lurched far left to reflect socialism more than the party of JFK that asked what you could do for your country. In an interview with MSNBC, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz defended himself, “I’ve also been criticized for being a billionaire. Let’s talk about that. I’m self-made. I grew up in the project in Brooklyn, New York. I thought that was the American dream.”
“I’m not a Democrat,” Schultz told the ‘Morning Joe’ panel. “I don’t affiliate myself with the Democrat Party who is so far left, who basically wants the government to take over health care, which we cannot afford, the government to give free college to everybody and the government to give everyone a job, which basically is $40 trillion on the balance sheet of $21.5 trillion. We can’t afford it.”
My view of American life is one of short-term pessimism and long-term optimism. And here is a bit of optimism that I’ll share: I think this may be the last time I am obliged to write about the Clintons. The Clinton era is over.
Ask Howard Schultz.
The 1990s were a hoot of a decade, epitomized by Nirvana, the Clinton presidency and Starbucks — each of which in its way exhibited the characteristic style of the ’90s, when the countercultural ambitions of the 1960s were wedded to the frank, cheerful materialism of the 1980s.
Seattle was the center of the ’90s aesthetic. Grunge is long gone, along with all those flannel shirts, but Starbucks is still here. It is the McDonald’s of its age, the thermonuclear-proof cockroach of the corporate food-service scene. And now chairman emeritus Howard Schultz is contemplating a Ross Perot-style run for the presidency.
Schultz was a Clinton Democrat when that meant Bill Clinton, though as a donor he stuck with Hillary and dutifully wrote checks to Barack Obama, John Edwards, the Democratic National Committee and others. But in 2019, he says he can’t in good conscience run as a Democrat.
“What the Democrats are proposing is something that is as false as the Wall,” he says, indicating “free” health care, “free” college and the entire litany of “free” things “which the country cannot afford.” He worries about the national debt, unfunded liabilities and other examples of fiscal recklessness.
He thinks that the Democrats’ current liquidate-the-kulaks approach to taxes may prove counterproductive to the long-term interests of the United States. He worries that “extremists” have taken over both parties.
As you might imagine, he isn’t exactly setting on fire the hearts of his former Democratic co-partisans. They believe that an independent candidacy from the center-left may give President Trump a second term.
