Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett Educates the White House Press As To Who and What Is Responsible for Amazing Economy
WANT TO LEARN WHO REALLY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CURRENT THRIVING ECONOMY …
Watch the video below and you will see a masterful job by Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett educate the liberal White House press as to when and where and who and why the economy is doing so well today. Unemployment is at 3.8%, we have had record low unemployment for Africa-Americans and Hispanics. Millions of jobs being created including manufacturing ones who Obama said would never return. Business and consumer confidence is up. Last quarters GDP was 4.2%. The DOW hit yet another record high today of 26,743.50, up 86.52.
Kevin Hassett goes through chart after chart showing the trend lines that distinctly indicate during who’s presidency the amazing gains have been made. Please watch. What is rather ironic is Obama is taking credit for things in the economy that he claimed would never happen again. President Trump has reversed many of the economy killing regulations.
Hey Barack Obama, you didn’t build it!
Remember when Obama mocked Donald Trump prior to the 2016 elections, stating the jobs were not coming back and how could he make such claims come true. Remember when Obama stated, what does he have a magic wand? It would appear he did Barack. It just goes to show just how clueless Obama was in the economy and job creation.
MORE AMAZING ECONOMIC NEW BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE TRUMP ECONOMY …
As reported at CNBC, the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits fell last week, hitting near a 49-year low of 201,000. That is the lowest level since November 1969. The rate of layoffs in the U.S. have been declining for years and are now near the lowest levels in half a century.
This is why you elected Donald Trump president. He can only continue the amazing economy with a Republican, and more so Conservative Republican House and Senate.
The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, hitting near a 49-year low in a sign the job market remains strong.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell by 3,000 to a seasonally adjusted level of 201,000 for the week ended Sept. 15, the Labor Department said on Thursday. That is the lowest level since November 1969. Data for the prior week’s claims was unrevised.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 210,000 in the latest week.
The Labor Department said only claims for Hawaii were estimated last week. The four-week moving average of initial claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, declined by 2,250 to 205,750 last week, the lowest level since December 1969.
America, wake up. Under President Donald J. Trump we have not seen these finds of economic numbers in half a century. This is historic. Unemployment benefit claims at record lows, black unemployment at record lows, Hispanic unemployment at record lows, a current unheard of 3.9% unemployment rate, 4.2% GDP last quarter and consumer and business optimism is through the roof. Trump has renegotiated NAFTA with Mexico for a better US deal and is about to do the same with Canada.
A note to Republicans, Independents and blue color, hard working Democrats … this is what you wanted! This is why you elected Donald Trump in 2016. Look what he has made possible in less than 2 years. If you want all this to come crashing down then by all means put the Democrats back in control in the House and Senate and watch the collapse of the economy. It is up to you to continue to Make America Great Again.
DOW 26,656 AND CLIMBING …
Today the DOW closed at 26,656 for a new all-time high. The previous record was set in January 2018 at 26,616. Simply amazing! Yesterday the DOW reaches its 100th all time high since candidate Trump was elected President. The DOW is up almost 8800 points since Trump was elected. You might want to remember this bit of good news and what it has done for the economy and your 401k’s before you cast a vote in this November’s midterm elections. Its up to the American people if you want Anti-Trump, Resistance Democrats to control the power in the House of Representatives and Senate and watch all these economic gains come crashing down.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at a record high on Thursday, its 100th record close since Election Day 2016. The stock market index has been propelled higher by economic optimism and tax reform, which have boosted companies’ earnings.
The S&P 500 closed at a record for the 89th time Thursday since the election, and numerous S&P 500 component stocks set records. Shares of companies in various sectors of the economy set records on Thursday, evidence that the strong economy is benefiting many industries.
Remember when Donald Trump was elected on 11/4/2016 the DOW was 17,888 and down some 700 points. All of the LEFT know-nothings, Never-Trumpers and Left-wing media pundits said Trump would crash the economy and the stock markets. The same know-nothings and Leftist hacks said Trump’s tariffs would crash the economy and stock markets. They could never have been more wrong.
U.S. stocks rose in early trading on Friday, with Wall Street extending its recent uptrend and pushing further into record territory.

President Trump Orders Declassification of Carter Page FISA Surveillance Application & Release of Comey texts
FINALLY, THE DECLASSIFICATION OF FISA SURVEILLANCE APPLICATION …
As reported at The Hill, President Donald Trump moved to immediately release many of former FBI Director James Comey’s text messages and declassify 20 pages of a surveillance application that targeted former campaign adviser Carter Page. It is about time the America people see exactly what the FBI was doing behind the scenes in their bias and anti-Trump dealings. The rats should be ducking for cover upon this announcement. This is long overdue and the beginning of the end of the smug Deep State individuals who attempted a silent coup.
President Donald Trump moved on Monday to immediately release a tranche of former FBI Director James Comey’s text messages and declassify 20 pages of a surveillance application that targeted former campaign adviser Carter Page, Trump’s latest offensive against a Russia investigation that has ensnared associates and has consumed his attention for much of his presidency.
The breadth of the order came as a surprise and landed amid a full-court White House effort to shore up the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, as he defends himself against a sexual assault allegation. Trump demanded that the FBI produce 20 pages of the surveillance application — which Republicans on Capitol Hill have suggested would help show anti-Trump bias at the highest levels of the FBI.
Trump also called for the release of senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s notes related to the Russia probe. Ohr was a key conduit to the FBI for information provided by Christopher Steele, a former British spy who investigated Trump’s relationship with Russia during the 2016 campaign and produced a dossier of damaging allegations — which Trump has derided as false.
At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W. Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation; and (3) all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.
In addition, President Donald J. Trump has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr.
Jobless Claims Remain at Half-Century Low Initial Claims, Fell to 204,000 in the Week Ended Sept. 8, 2018
MORE GREAT ECONOMIC NEWS …
As reported at the WSJ, initial jobless claims have fallen to 204,000, the lowest level since December 1969. More great news for the Trump administration. How many good economic indicators must be done under President Donald Trump before it becomes obvious, the reason for the great economy is his policies and the tax cuts?
The number of Americans filing applications for new unemployment benefits fell last week, remaining at a half-century low for the second-straight week.
Initial jobless claims, a proxy for layoffs across the U.S., fell by 1,000 to a seasonally adjusted 204,000 in the week ended Sept. 8, the Labor Department said Thursday. This is the lowest level since December 1969. Unemployment benefit applications were near this level last week too.
Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expected 210,000 new claims last week.
Data can be volatile from week to week. The four-week moving average of claims, a steadier measure, fell 2,000 to 208,000, also the lowest level since 1969.
Jobless claims have remained low in recent years, as the labor market continues to tighten and managers face difficulty finding qualified employees.
Thursday’s report showed the number of claims workers made for longer than a week declined by 15,000 to 1,696,000 in the week ended Sept. 1. The figure, also known as continuing claims, is reported with a one-week lag.
