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.

MORE THINGS YOU WILL NEVER SEE OR HEAR FROM THE MSM, TRUMP MOST PRO-BLACK PRESIDENT …
What if the below statements are really true? What if Trump actually winds up doing more for blacks as president than anyone else? Actions speak louder than words.
As President Donald Trump is flanked to his left by Coretta Scott King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., Pastor Darrell Scott states that President Trump “was the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime.” Scott went on to say it was Trump, not Obama who has been pro-active in the African-American community, with prison reform and urban revitalization. Pastor Scott then stated, “The last president didn’t feel like he had to. He feels like he didn’t have to. He got a pass.” WOW!!! This is why the LEFT and the liberal MSM are going after TRUMP with 90-93 percent negative news coverage. Trump is a treat to them and their power base. Candidate Trump asked minorities to give him a chance during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump asked, what did you have to lose? Take a look at the amazing results.
DARRELL SCOTT, FOUNDER & PASTOR, NEW SPIRIT RIVAL CHURCH: To be honest, this is probably going to be — and I’m going to say this as the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime. Because and I try to, you know, analyze the people that I encounter.
This president actually wants to prove something to our community. Our faith based community and our ethnic community. The last president didn’t feel like he had to. He feels like he didn’t have to. He got a pass.
This president, this administration is probably going to be more proactive. We got urban revitalization and prison reform than any president in your lifetime.
When Donald Trump said he would make America great again, he meant everyone. And that is exactly what is going on in the United States today. It is whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians that are all seeing record low unemployment. Above, Pastor Scott made a very important statement which I believe is very true. The pastor stated, “The last president [Barack Obama] didn’t feel like he had to. He feels like he didn’t have to. He got a pass.” Of course Pastor Scott and anyone who dare support Trump from the black community will be called every racist name in the book and demonized. But the truth is, Obama was provided a pass, by everyone including the media. Trump has a lot to prove, and he is. Don’t listen to the bias MSM and their agenda driven coverage of Trump, look at the results.

Dinesh D’Souza Latest Powerful Documentary Film, ‘Death of a Nation,’ in Theaters on August 3rd (VIDEO)
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.”
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?
UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FALLS TO 3.9%, BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT TO RECORD LOW OF 6.6% …
Yes, President Donald Trump is making America great again and in some cases making it greater than ever before. The Unemployment rate for April 2018 has fallen to 3.9%. This is a 17 and a half year low for the U.S. unemployment rate. The news was even better for minorities as the unemployment rate for black workers dropped to a record low 6.6%, beating the previous record low of 6.8% set in December. The jobless rate for Hispanics fell to 4.8%, tying the record reached last year and in 2006. This is tremendous news for America and troublesome for Democrats, the LEFT and the liberal MSM. Even as under the Trump administration minorities are making considerable gains in the work force, the miserable LEFT and MSM still manages to find the negative. Hmm, where were these people during the 8 yeas of Obama when blacks had double digit unemployment?
U.S. job growth increased less than expected in April and the unemployment rate dropped to near a 17-1/2-year low of 3.9 percent as some out-of-work Americans left the labor force.
The Labor Department’s closely watched employment report on Friday also showed wages barely rose last month, which may ease concerns that inflation pressures are rapidly building up, likely keeping the Federal Reserve on a gradual path of monetary policy tightening.“
Fed officials can rest easy that there is not any wage-based inflation on the horizon,” said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at MUFG in New York. “There is no need to speed up the path of interest rates because inflation isn’t heating up in a worrisome manner.”
Nonfarm payrolls increased by 164,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department reported. Data for March was revised to show the economy adding 135,000 jobs instead of the previously reported 103,000. That was the fewest amount of jobs created in six months and followed an outsized gain of 324,000 in February.
But 236,000 people left the labor force in April, adding to the 158,000 who quit in March. The labor force participation rate, or the proportion of working-age Americans who have a job or are looking for one, fell to 62.8 percent last month from 62.9 percent in March. It was the second straight monthly drop in the participation rate.
Where was the LEFT and MSM calling out Obama during his 8 years for the difference between black and white unemployment? Instead, the miserable LEFT and MSM continue to be all things negative to Trump and put Obama op on high. Really, the numbers show that there is less of a disparage between blacks and whites under Trump. Both black and white unemployment has gone down about 0.6% since the November 2016 elections,; however, the difference is that these are historic lows for blacks. The majority of time during Obama, blacks witnessed double digit unemployment as there were a record number of individuals on food stamps. The fact of the matter is that if Trump was president in 2008-2016, blacks would have seen the benefits they see now, just that much sooner.
The LEFT and Democrats are freaking out that minorities are seeing record low unemployment and might just vote as the silent black and Hispanic voter with Trump and the GOP in 2018 and 2020.
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III Rips Special Counsel Robert Mueller in Paul Manffort Case … “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort. You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead to Mr. Trump” and his eventual prosecution or impeachment.” (VIDEO)
WOW, FEDERAL JUDGE DROPS BOMB ON MUELLER INVESTIGATION AND THEIR “UNFETTERED POWER” …
As reported at Reuters, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III questioned in federal court in Virginia that the Special Counsel Robert Mueller should not have “unfettered power.” in the Russia probe. Judge T.S. Ellis went on the rebuke the Mueller investigation with regards to the Paul Manifort case in that they exceeded their authority. Judge Ellis went on to say, “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort. You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead to Mr. Trump” and his eventual prosecution or impeachment.” It is about time some one put their foot down with regards to the out of control Mueller witch hunt. The federal judge literally accused the Muller team of lying. Even CNN fake news had to admit this was a bad day for the Mueller team.
A federal judge said Special Counsel Robert Mueller should not have “unfettered power” in probing ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, and accused Mueller of using criminal cases to pressure Trump’s allies to turn against him.
At a tense hearing in a federal court in Virginia on Friday, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III sharply questioned whether Mueller exceeded his authority in filing tax and bank fraud charges against Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.
Ellis said the indictment appeared to be a way for Mueller to leverage Manafort into providing information about Trump.
“The vernacular is to sing,” he said.
“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” the judge said. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead to Mr. Trump” and his eventual prosecution or impeachment.
“It’s unlikely you’re going to persuade me the special counsel has unfettered power to do whatever he wants,” Ellis, who was appointed by Republican President Ronald Reagan, said at a hearing on Manafort’s motion to dismiss the Virginia charges.
Judge questions Mueller decision to prosecute Manafort – Trump discusses at NRA Convention
Dershowitz reacts to judge questioning Manafort case motives from ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
The case before Judge Ellis consists of tax and bank fraud charges that not only have nothing to do with alleged Russian collusion, but also predate the 2016 presidential campaign by a decade…
“I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” Judge Ellis said. He decried Mueller’s apparently “unfettered power.” He did not find the power to prosecute Mueller in the May 2017 appointment order, which directed him to pursue links between Russia and the Trump campaign, as well as “any matter that arose or may arise directly” from the investigation. He said that Mueller improperly took over existing Justice Department investigations into Manafort without adequately explaining what connection it had to the Russia probe…
Judge Ellis doesn’t find [an authority to investigate such matters] in the May 2017 memo by Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein. Team Mueller was represented at the hearing by former deputy solicitor general Michael Dreeben. At the hearing Dreeben took a drubbing. Asserting that Mueller’s authority is even broader than the mandate given 2017 memo, Dreeben claimed that national security precluded a full accounting of Mueller’s authority.
Dreeben cited Rosenstein’s August 2017 memo — covered by Andrew McCarthy in this NR column — explicitly granting Mueller the authority to investigate Manafort’s Ukraine dealings years before the 2016 election.
Mueller must have given Judge Ellis the same highly redacted copy of the August 2017 memo that is linked above. Judge Ellis wanted to see the whole thing. He gave Mueller two weeks to consult with intelligence agencies to determine whether they can confide a sealed, unredacted version of the memo with him.
Dreeben told him the redacted portions did not pertain to the Manafort case. “I’ll be the judge,” Ellis said.
CNN quotes Judge Ellis: “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud.” Judge Ellis demonstrated his grasp of what I’ve been calling the Mueller Switch Project. He said prosecutors were interested in Manafort only because of his potential to provide material that would lead to President Trump’s “prosecution or impeachment.”
