ADP/Moody’s Analytics: Private-Sector Jobs Grow by 235,000 in February vs 195,000 Expected


ADP and Moody’s Analytics. reports that private payrolls rose by 235,000 in February, well above Wall Street estimates of 195,000. The United States has gone from Barack Obama, the food stamp president, to Donald Trump, the jobs president. Trump is definitely making America great again!


Job creation saw another powerful month in February, with companies adding 235,000 positions, ADP and Moody’s Analytics reported Wednesday.

The total again defied Wall Street expectations, as economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters were expecting payrolls to grow by 195,000. Growth actually decelerated slightly, as January posted an upwardly revised 244,000 from the initially reported 234,000.

February marked the fourth month in a row that private payrolls hit 200,000 or better.

“The job market is red hot and threatens to overheat,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s, said in a statement. “With government spending increases and tax cuts, growth is set to accelerate.”

February saw broad-based gains that stretched across both the services and goods-producing sectors.

Leisure and hospitality led industry groups with 50,000 jobs, while professional and business services contributed 46,000 and trade, transportation and utilities added 44,000.

However, construction rose 21,000 and manufacturing notched 14,000 new positions. In all, goods-producing industries increased by 37,000 while all services-related businesses added 198,000.

POLITICO/Morning Consult Poll: Majority of Voters in Several Polls Don’t Think Oprah Winfrey Should Run for the White House


From The Politico, not Fox News, not Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity, but from the liberal Politico comes the following, a presidential run for Oprah Winfrey gets low ratings from voter. Add to this the Trump polling effect where individuals are less likely to say they are voting for Trump or say anything positive in public for fear of retribution. How did the 2016 polling go when it came to Donald Trump? Then there is that little Oprah-Weinstein issue that many voters don’t even know about.

Tweet Oprah Weinstein

Americans love Oprah Winfrey. But they aren’t exactly clamoring for the media mogul and former talk-show host to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

A majority of voters across several polls don’t think Winfrey should run for the White House, according to polls conducted since Winfrey’s much-heralded speech at a Hollywood awards show launched a round of presidential speculation. Even among Democratic voters, more say she shouldn’t run for president than should.

Still, there’s enough evidence to continue fueling speculation about her political prospects. Winfrey performs well on polling ballot tests, tying or leading Trump in a number of surveys. The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows Democratic voters prefer her to a host of other potential candidates — except former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)

And despite the persistent disapproval of Trump’s job performance thus far, voters are still open to political neophytes as presidential candidates — though Democratic voters are more likely to say they want candidates with experience in elected office.

Perhaps more interesting in the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll: Democratic voters actually prefer Winfrey to some of the party’s potential 2020 candidates. Winfrey would lead Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in a head-to-head primary matchup, 39 percent to 35 percent. And she has a big lead over Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), 44 percent to 23 percent.

But Winfrey trails both Biden, 54 percent to 31 percent, and Sanders, 46 percent to 37 percent — two of Democrats’ best-known possible candidates.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Cuts off Interview with White House Adviser Stephen Miller … “I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time” (VIDEO)


Remember when CNN was actually a trusted name in news? Nope, me neither. The below interview by CNN’s Jake Tapper shows the vile venom that drips through the liberal media’s veins in their all out effort to reverse an election of the People.

Smug, snide and condescending comments from Tapper

Jake Tapper Smug Snide

Amazing … there appears to be no freedom of speech at CNN. When the condescending media hack Jake Tapper got handed his lunch and did not like what he was hearing, which was a valid defense of President Trump and how he was elected to the White House, Tapper cut the interview.  White House Aid Stephen Miller slammed ‘Fire and Fury’ as ‘grotesque work of fiction’ in tense interview. Which by most accounts, it pretty much is. But that does not fit the liberal, hate Trump, try and impeach Trump agenda. So when the president was defended and CNN was called fake new to their face, the Democrat media complex did what they do best, stifle free speech and not let Americans hear an opposing side and the truth.

The below video is a perfect example why CNN and the liberal media can no longer be trusted. It is not about the news, its about their get Trump agenda.

Trump White House Aid escorted off CNN set:

A top White House aide was escorted off a CNN set Sunday when he refused to leave after a heated interview with host Jake Tapper.

White House policy adviser Stephen Miller was asked “politely” to leave the “State of the Union” set several times but ignored the requests, a CNN official told the Washington Examiner. Security then escorted him out.

Miller slammed CNN’s coverage of Trump and the release of Michael Wolff’s tell-all book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which shines an unflattering light on the president.

Black Unemployment Rate Falls to Record Low to 6.8%


As reported at CNBC, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that black workers had a 6.8 percent unemployment rate in December, the lowest in the 45 years the data has been tracked. This is HUGE!!! When President Donald Trump said he was going to “Make America Great Again,” he meant it for all Americans. The economy is now benefiting all Americans, including blacks. This is the Democrats worst nightmare. Who can blacks thank for this lowest ever unemployment? Donald Trump of course. It was not Barack Obama who created jobs for blacks, Obama actually failed blacks. It is actually Trump who will be better for blacks. Liberals and Democrats heads are spinning. Now the real question is, will blacks reward Trump for his amazing job in the 2020 elections? In 2016 Trump got 8% of the black vote,which was up from 2012 and 2008. If Trump gets double digit black votes, Democrats will lose their lock on this demographic forever.

Hat Making America GreAT again

Unemployment among black workers is at its lowest since at least the early 1970s, when the government began tracking the data.

The black unemployment rate of 6.8 percent in December was the lowest since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking it in 1972, a year in which the rate ranged from 11.2 percent to 9.4 percent. In the 45 years the data has been tracked, the unemployment rate for black or African-American workers aged 16 years and older has never fallen below 7 percent.

With all the negative race-baiting by the LEFT, Democrats and the media and hateful rhetoric against Donald Trump, who is it that has been putting them back to work?

DOW JONES Reaches Record High Over 25,000!!!


Yesterday, the Dow Jones industrial average broke above 25,000 for the first time, tying the fastest 1,000-point move in its history. In the wake of strong jobs reports, the GOP Tax cut passage, strong consumer confidence and a low unemployment rate, the DOW surged 25,000. The nay sayers in the liberal media claimed Trump was going to be terrible for the economy and the stock markets. Guess who was wrong again?


The Dow Jones industrial average broke above 25,000 for the first time on Thursday, tying the fastest 1,000-point move in its history, following the release of stronger-than-expected jobs data.

“The Dow hitting 25,000 was a pretty wild idea even a year ago. And while its symbolically important, the real story is never just a number. It’s the underlying strength that is pushing markets this high,” said Steve Claussen, vice president of trader strategy at ETRADE.

UPDATE I: And its up again today another 86 at this moment.
