MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
As reported at The Hill, according to a recent Quinnipiac University poll two-thirds of voters polled, 66%, stated that they would characterize the economy as “excellent” or “good.” Happy days are here again. This is the highest the poll has ever recorded. However, I have to say that there is a serious ignorance and derangement going on in this country. As per the poll, 49% say former President Obama is more responsible for the current economy, while 40% attribute the current economic state to President Trump. Are you people on crack? One can only attribute stuff like this to the 24-7 negative news stories on Trump and the unwillingness to give him credit for anything. Folks, Trump has done away with thousands of Obama administration regulations, the stock market took off because “TRUMP” was elected and because the business actually see stability, not the uncertainly of the Obama years. Get a clue. I guess Obama and the Democrats were also responsible for the tax cuts as well? Stop kidding yourself and stop the lie … Trump was elected to turn America back around again to capitalism, not the socialist path we were going down under Obama.
Perceptions of the U.S. economy have reached a record high among voters, according to a new poll.
Two-thirds of voters polled, 66 percent, said in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday they would characterize the economy as “excellent” or “good.” Quinnipiac noted that figure is the highest rating since it began asking the question in 2001.
Thirty-three percent, however, said they view the economy as “not so good” or “poor.”
A majority of voters, 73 percent, said they would characterize their own current financial standing as “excellent” or “good,” while 26 percent said their financial situation is “not so good” or “poor.”
Wells Fargo & Fifth Third Bancorp Provide Bonuses & Unveil Minimum Wage Hikes after GOP Tax Bill Passage
SO THIS IS WHAT ARMAGEDDON MEANS TO DEMOCRATS … EMPLOYEES BENEFIT AFTER TAX CUT BILL PASSAGE …
Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans in The House and Senate. Because the GOP Tax Bill was passed, look what happened in return. Remember, not one, not one Democrat voted for this legislation. Wells Fargo and Fifth Third Bank provide early Christmas presents to their employees, thanks to passage of the Tax bill.
Fifth Third Bancorp will pay more than 13,500 employees a bonus and raise the minimum wage of its workforce to $15 an hour after the passage of the Republican tax plan that will cut the bank’s corporate tax rate.
Fifth Third is yet another company to announce a bonus for employees because of the tax plan. AT&T said earlier Wednesday that it would pay more than 200,000 U.S. employees $1,000 each and increase its capital spending budget by $1 billion.
Wells Fargo, meanwhile, also said it would be boosting its minimum wage for employees to $15 an hour, which was prompted by the tax plan. The San Francisco-based bank also said it would target $400 million in donations to community and nonprofit organizations next year.
Can You Say Racism? “BlackXmas” … Black Lives Matters Want Black People in America to Boycott All the Stores run by White People in America
HOW RACIST, BLACK LIVES MATTERS DREAMING OF A BLACK ONLY CHRISTMAS …
Black Lives Matters is dreaming of a BlackXmas. Why doesn’t this come as a shock? The racist, socialist group is calling for blacks to boycott white businesses merely because the owners are white. Of course BLM so hates capitalism as well. Is America finally figuring out what this group is all about? Black Lives Matters wants to bring down “white” capitalism with Black Christmas. So this is the First Amendment, eh? Voting with one’s wallet is a powerful form of free speech and is supposed to harm nobody. However, when you make race the main and only issue, Houston we have a problem. Imagine, just imagine an all-white, pro-white group stating that all black businesses should be boycotted by white America? Can you hear the liberals, MSM and Democrats hue and cry throughout the land? I am guesses that BLM would be okay if we reversed the premise between the colors of people and those who own businesses? Hardly. What would the reaction be if white supremacists wanted to boycott black businesses, just because of color? The fact BLM wants to target individuals and businesses mere because of one color is as racist as it gets. Just curious BLM, do you remember who said the following: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Group leaders say it’s time for people to “resist white capitalism” and divest from businesses that contribute to racial inequality. Melina Abdullah, a BLM leader who is a professor at California State University, Los Angeles (CSU-LA), is encouraging shoppers to use their money to support economic empowerment for minorities.
“We say ‘white capitalism’ because it’s important that we understand that the economic system and the racial structures are connected,” said Abdullah during her weekly radio show, Beautiful Struggle. “We have to not only disrupt the systems of policing that literally kill our people, but we have to disrupt the white supremacist, capitalistic, patriarchal, heteronormative system that is really the root cause of these police killings.”
White Christmas: BLM Does Realize that Bing Crosby was Referring to Snow, Right?
No racism or anti-capitalism here, move along. So MLM wants black people to boycott all stores run by white people and to only buy or donate their monies to black owned businesses or organizations. Hmm, isn’t the very mention that black should boycott all white racist in its essence? Using color and a people to be the rational to boycott is the definition of racism.
Black Lives Matter has started a campaign to get all the black people in America to boycott all the stores run by white people in America, and shop only those outlets owned and operated by black people.
But don’t worry — that’s not racist. After all, the same people advocating for “BlackXmas” would be quite OK with a “WhiteXmas.” Right?
“We’re dreaming of a #BlackXmas,” tweeted #BlackLivesMatter-LA. @BLMA, as the Daily Caller noted.
How could purposeful division make anything better? America, wake up and call racism in whatever form it is in for what it is, RACISM.
As reported at CNN, Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News due to a complaint flied by an employee into “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” According to Page 6, Lauer allegedly sexually assaulted a female NBC staffer during the Rio Olympics. The NBC staffer, who wishes to remain anonymous, complained to NBC bosses yesterday, prompting them to move fast and fire him. As per NBC News, this may not be an isolated incident. Savannah Guthrie read a statement from NBC News chairman Andy Lack, stating that the company has received a detailed complaint from a colleague Monday night “about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace” by Lauer.
Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News on Wednesday after an employee filed a complaint about “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” the network announced.
Savannah Guthrie made the announcement at the top of the “Today” show. Lauer has been the cornerstone of the program, one of the most profitable franchises on television, for two decades.
NBC News chairman Andrew Lack said in a memo to staff that it was the first complaint lodged against Lauer in his career at the network. But he said “we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”
Lauer was informed of the network’s decision late Tuesday night, before he went to bed, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Reporters for The New York Times and Variety had been investigating Lauer for several weeks, according to sources who had been contacted by the Times.
Guthrie said she was informed just moments before going on the air.
“This is a sad morning at ‘Today’ and NBC News,” she said. “As I’m sure you can understand, we are devastated. I’m heartbroken for Matt.”
Guthrie also said she was heartbroken for the woman who accused Lauer of misconduct, noting “it’s long overdue” that women feel comfortable coming forward against abusive men.
Hoda Kotb, on the set with Guthrie, said she has known Lauer for years and “loved him as a friend and a colleague.”
“It’s hard to reconcile the man who walks in every day” with the person who was identified in the complaint, she said.
Lauer, 59, was named a co-anchor of “Today” in January 1997 after three years as the newsreader.
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST …
Matt Zimmerman is out at NBC News. Zimmerman was fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct and sexual harassment by two women at the news division. Matt Zimmerman was the senior VP of booking, news and entertainment and worked with NBC since at least 2004 and primarily handled bookings on “Today” and other NBC News programs. One has to wonder if there will be anyone left in the news rooms after the purge.
Matt Zimmerman, a veteran of NBC News, has been fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct with two women at the news division.
“We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy. As a result, he has been dismissed,” an NBC News spokesperson said Tuesday in a statement.
Sources say the allegations were recently brought to the attention of human resources. At issue were multiple relationships with women who were junior to Zimmerman and, in at least one case, a direct report, said one source. NBC News policy stipulates that such relationships must be disclosed to human resources. Zimmerman, who was a senior VP at NBC News, is a veteran of The Today Show and in 2014 was elevated to lead a streamlined NBC News booking department.
