Small Business Optimism Surges to Highest Level Ever … Better Than Even Under Reagan

ANOTHER ECONOMIC RECORD FOR THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY …

As reported at CNBC, the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index jumped to 108.8 last month, an all-time high. This is the highest level ever recorded in the survey’s 45-year history and above the previous record of 108 in 1983, set during the second year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. President Donald Trump is making good on his promise to “Making America Great Again.”

Main Street optimism hits new August high from CNBC.

U.S. small business optimism surged to a record in August as the tax cuts and deregulation efforts of President Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress led to more sales, hiring and investment, according to a survey by the National Federation of Independent Business.

The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index jumped to 108.8 last month, the highest level ever recorded in the survey’s 45-year history and above the previous record of 108 in 1983, set during the second year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. The August figure was up from a 107.9 reading in July.

The NFIB noted record readings for job creation plans and the amount of owners saying it was a good time to expand. Capital spending plans were the highest since 2007.

“Today’s groundbreaking numbers are demonstrative of what I’m hearing everyday from small business owners – that business is booming,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan, in a press release Tuesday. “As the tax and regulatory landscape changed, so did small business expectations and plans.”

I guess Obama will take credit for this as well.

Dinesh D’Souza Latest Powerful Documentary Film, ‘Death of a Nation,’ in Theaters on August 3rd (VIDEO)

ANOTHER AMAZING AND POWERFUL DOCUMENTARY FROM DENESH

Weeks after being pardoned by President Donald Trump, Dinesh D’Souza is unveiling the trailer for his latest movie. Quality Flix opens the conservative’s latest documentary film, Death of a Nation, in 1,000 theaters on Aug. 3.

The film likens Abraham Lincoln to Donald Trump — saying that the situations they found themselves in as U.S. presidents are very similar, according to the filmmaker.

“Lincoln was elected to unite a country and stop slavery. Democrats smeared him; went to war against him; assassinated him. Now, their target is Trump.”

DEATH OF A NATION

Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him.

Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right “by any means necessary.”

But which is the party of the slave plantation? Which is the party that invented white supremacy? Which is the party that praised fascist dictators and shaped their genocidal policies and was in turn praised by them?

Moreover, which is the party of racism today? Is fascism now institutionally embodied on the right or on the left?

Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, “Death of a Nation” cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths.

Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump—and we—come together and save America for the second time?

Former President Clinton Says I Wouldn’t have Done anything Differently in Lewinsky Scandal even in #MeToo Era (VIDEO)

SLICK WILLY HAS LOST THE GIVE OF CHARM AND BS IN HIS LATER YEARS, THIS MIGHT BE ONE OF THE WORST AND DAMNING INTERVIEWS EVER …

In an interview with the NBC  Today Show, former President Biull Clinton bombed big time. Clinton was asked questions about sexual harassment, power and his sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky if it had happened in the era of the #MeToo . Clinton became uncomfortable, defensive and argumentative during the interview. Clinton said it wouldn’t be an issue today in the era of the #MeToo movement. HUH? Bubba claims the facts have been changed in his sex scandal. Really? So sexual harassment, sex with a girl 27 years younger and we have not even mentioned the cigar. The only reason why the #MeToo movement would not have gone after you and have not is politics.

In what might be the biggest lie ever and BS, former president Clinton actually had the audacity to say that current President Donald Trump, who has faced allegations of sexual misconduct, had not received the kind of media maelstrom he himself had faced during the Lewinsky scandal. WHAT, he hasn’t?  Bill Clinton, who obviously lives in denial stated that Trump “hasn’t gotten anything like the coverage that you would expect.”

Watch the reaction Mika Brzezinskin at the end of the video. This from the far left. She appears disgusted,

I don’t think it would be an issue,” the ex-president told NBC News’ Craig Melvin in an interview that aired Monday on the “Today” show, after he was asked if he would have “approached the accusations differently” if he were president in 2018 “with everything that’s going on with the #MeToo movement.”

“Because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts. If the facts were the same today, I wouldn’t,” said Clinton, who was doing the “Today” interview along with author James Patterson to promote a new book they’ve written together titled “The President Is Missing.”

In 1998, Clinton first denied then admitted to an affair with Lewinsky, who had been a White House intern at the time. The scandal launched a lengthy investigation that ended with Clinton becoming the second president to be impeached.

Fact-Checking Bill Clinton’s meltdown on NBC’s ‘Today Show’

Even the WAPO gave Clinton Three Pinocchios. This was a disastrous interview and shows that Clinton has become, a shell of his once self. He has obviously lost his best attribute in old age, the gift of BS.

—Barbara Bush

Barbara Bush, the widely admired wife of one president and the fiercely loyal mother of another, died Tuesday evening at her home in Houston. She was 92.

Jim McGrath, a family spokesman, announced the death in a statement posted to Twitter.

On Sunday, the office of her husband, former President George Bush, issued a statement saying that after consulting her family and her doctors, Mrs. Bush had “decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care.”

The Bushes had celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary in January, making them the longest-married couple in presidential history.

Mrs. Bush had been hospitalized with pneumonia in December 2013. She underwent surgery for a perforated ulcer in 2008 and had heart surgery four months later.

She was born Barbara Pierce on June 8, 1925, at a maternity hospital in New York City run by the Salvation Army principally for unwed mothers. The family obstetrician practiced there one month a year, and that month happened to be June. She was the third child of the former Pauline Robinson and Marvin Pierce. Her father was in the publishing business and eventually became president of the McCall publishing company. Her mother, the daughter of an Ohio Supreme Court justice, was active in civic affairs in Rye, N.Y., the New York City suburb where the family lived.

After graduating in 1942, Mr. Bush enlisted in the Navy and trained as a pilot. The next year, he was assigned to a torpedo squadron in the Pacific and piloted a Grumman Avenger. On one combat mission, in 1944, he was shot down and rescued by a submarine. Barbara did not hear from him for a month.

After enrolling at Smith College but before entering the freshman class, she shocked her mother by spending the summer working in a nuts-and-bolts factory.

She and Mr. Bush, on leave from the Navy, married in Rye on Jan. 6, 1945; the bride, not yet 20, had dropped out of Smith at the beginning of her sophomore year. “The truth is, I just wasn’t interested,” she said in interviews. “I was just interested in George.”

Barbara Bush delivered her speech to a less than thrilled audience as the liberal arts all women’s college had wanted another speaker. Little did they realize that she would win them over and give them pearls of wisdom they would use the rest of their lives. Barbara’s comments at the 9:36 mark of the video brought down the house!

George W. Bush  discussed how lucky he was to have Barbara as his mother:

“Laura, Barbara, Jenna, and I are are sad, but our souls are settled because we know hers was,” George W. Bush said. “Barbara Bush was a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love, and literacy to millions. To us she was so much more.”

“Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end,” George W. Bush said. “I’m a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.”

Former President Jimmy Carter paid tribute to Barbara Bush’s “warmth, generosity and keen wit” following the former first lady’s death.

Carter says Bush was “the matriarch of a family dedicated to serving.” In a statement, he says that through Bush’s “work to promote literacy as a value in every American home, countless families now have the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in all aspects of their lives.”

Carter says he and former first lady Rosalynn Carter are saddened by her death and they’ll miss her.

The FBI Launches New Clinton Foundation Investigation Into Any Pay-to-Play Politics or Other Illegal Activities (VIDEO)

NOW FOR THE REAL INVESTIGATIONS INTO CORRUPTION

The shoe might finally have dropped on the Clintons’.  The Hill is reporting that the Justice Department has launched a new into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. A spokesperson for the Clinton’s has called the investigation a sham. However, as John Solomon writes, for years, “news media from the New York Times to The Daily Caller have reported countless stories on donations to the Clinton Foundation or speech fees that closely fell around the time of favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.” It is obvious from the Hillary Clinton email investigations that the Clinton’s received preferential treatment from the Obama DOJ and FBI in how that was handled. Why wouldn’t we think the same of this? What’s good for the gander should be good for the goose as well. Let’s have an independent prosecutor investigate the Clinton Foundation and her private email server and have it be an unlimited budget, open ended investigation while having all of the investigative team be Trump supporters and anti-Clinton folks. Go for it.

The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.

FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in coming weeks.

The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.

The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.
