SORRY BERNIE SANDERS, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ AND THE LEFT, AMERICA IS A CAPITALIST NATION …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Sorry Bernie Sanders and the new darling of the Democrat party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Democrat party finds itself moving farther and farther to the left and socialism as an overwhelming majority of Americans prefer a free market economic system. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez previously stated that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “represents the future of our party.” Really, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, Ocasio-Cortez, is the future of the Democrats in a country that prefers free markets? Democrats are about to drive off the political cliff. If any of you actually thought or think self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has a chance of being elected, you are delusional. The idea that Democrats are purposely attaching themselves to socialism is amazing.
In New York, a Democratic Socialist candidate just unseated a near-20-year veteran in one of the state’s Democratic congressional primaries, and she contends she represents the Democratic Party’s future. But voters reject socialism in no uncertain terms.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Only 13% think socialism is a better economic system, and just as many (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Blue wave, huh?
213,000 Jobs Created in June 2018 … Unempoyment up to 4% Because 601,000 Americans Reenter the Workforce!!!
ANOTHER BETTER THAN EXPECTED JOBS REPORT …
The June 2018 jobs report was released this morning, 213,000 jobs were created in June, well above the expected gain of 195,000. The unemployment rate ticked up .2% from 3.8% to 4.0%; however, that is because the labor force grew by 601,000.
The unemployment rate moved higher, off an 18-year low, to 4% from May’s 3.8%. Economists say the slight move higher is a positive as it reflects more workers entering the workforce after sitting on the sidelines, drawn by the plethora of jobs. In June, 601,000 Americans entered the labor force, and not all found jobs.
Nonfarm payrolls rose 213,000 in June and the unemployment rate was 4 percent, according to a government report Friday.
Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected a gain of 195,000 and the jobless rate to hold steady at 3.8 percent, which had been tied for the lowest since 1969.
In addition to the payroll gains, average hourly earnings rose 2.7 percent year over year, a bit below expectations of a 2.8 percent increase.
Despite increasing talk about the economy being near full employment, hiring continues to grow. Along with June’s upside surprise, the Bureau of Labor Statistics revised April’s count up from 159,000 to 175,000 and May’s from 223,000 to 244,000, a total of 37,000 more than initially stated.

Trump’s approval rating remains negative, at minus 6, but it’s also the lowest negative rating recorded since he took office.
And you wonder why the LEFT is freaking out and becoming even more unhinged that usual in their words and actions. Blue wave huh? I think the LEFT realized there will be no wave and they are losing their collective minds. Trump is tending upwards as the LEFT, Democrats, Deep State and liberal media have thrown the kitchen sink at this man and Trump is getting more popular.
MORE POSITIVE ECONOMIC NEWS …
From the Washington Examiner … And some people said that manufacturing would never make a come back. It looks like President Donald Trump does have a magic wand after all.
In a stunning turnaround sparked by the improving economy and last December’s tax cuts, over 95 percent of manufacturers have turned bullish about their future, an all-time record.
That is the highest outlook number in the 20-year history of the group’s Outlook Survey.
The report, said the group, comes on the six-month anniversary of passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and amid reports that manufacturers are increasing wages, hiring, and capital investments.
“This record optimism is no accident. It is fueled by the game-changing tax reform passed six months ago,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons.
AND THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE …
President Donald Trump’s economy is zooming along, 4% GDP in for the 2nd quarter is a strong possibility says many economists.
Dear Mr. Obama, it appears that President Trump does have a Magic Wand …
The U.S. economy appears to have gotten quick out of the gate in the second quarter and it could be on track for 4% growth or higher, analysts say. After strong gains in personal income and consumer spending in April, a bevy of Wall Street firms upped their GDP forecasts. Amherst Pierpont Securities raised its estimate to 4.5% from 4.2%. Macroeconomic Advisers increased its forecast to 4% from 3.6%. Natwest raised its projection to about 4% from 3.2%. Barclays also upped its estimate, but it was near the low end of forecasts. It raised its target to 3.3% from 3%. GDP has only topped 4% three times since the end of the Great Recession in mid-2009.
