ITS NOT JUST A TRUMP BUMP, ITS TRUMP MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
The jobs numbers are in for President Donald Trumps first full month in the White House and they are fantastic. The U.S. economy added 235,000 jobs in February and the unemployment rate at 4.7%. However, look for this number ti go back up as millions of people will get back into the work force as they see jobs are being created. During the 2016 campaign Donald Trump promoted jobs, jobs, jobs and it appears that he is coming trough on that promise creating an environment favorable to business and job growth. From CNS News, a record 152,528,000 Americans were employed in February, 447,000 more than in January, and the labor force participation rate went up, the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Also, job gains for December and January were revised up by 9,000. December’s was revised to 157,000 from 155,000, and January’s to 238,000 from 227,000.
The U.S. economy added a robust 235,000 jobs in February, the Labor Department said Friday.
The unemployment rate ticked down to 4.7%. Unemployment peaked at 10% in 2009, after the financial crisis.
Economists say it will be a challenge for Trump to fulfill his promise to create 25 million jobs over the next 10 years. The unemployment rate is already very low, and many Baby Boomers have either retired or left the job market.
At least in his first full month, though, Trump is on pace to fulfill that promise.
Last year the economy averaged about 190,000 new jobs per month. The economy is showing other signs of strength: Consumer and business confidence is high and stocks are at record levels.
Wage growth continued showing signs of progress after persisting at a sluggish pace for years until 2016. Wages grew a solid 2.8% in February compared with a year ago.
The participation rate, which shows the share of working-age people in the labor force, increased to 63 percent, the highest since last March, from 62.9 percent. It has been hovering close to the lowest level in more than three decades.
The number of people out of the labor force, a figure repeatedly highlighted by Trump as a sign of economic malaise, fell by 176,000 to 94.2 million.
Sixty-three percent of Americans either held a job or actively looked for one in February, the highest participation rate in ten months.
The number Americans not in the labor force continued to drop, to 94,190,000 in February, 176,000 fewer than in January and well below the record of 95,102,000 set in December 2016.
And there’s more good news in the February jobs report, the first one to cover a full month of the Trump presidency:
According to BLS, the economy added 235,000 jobs last month and the February unemployment rate dropped a tenth of a point to 4.7 percent.
The 94,190,000 million people counted as not participating in the labor force in February includes millions of baby boomer retirees, students, the disabled, homemakers and others who do not work for various reasons.
Exxon Mobil Corp. Announced It Plans to Spend $20 Billion Over 10 Years Along the Gulf Coast Resulting in the Creation of 45,000 Jobs
JOBS, JOBS, AND MORE JOBS DURING THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY …
In a press release from Exxon Mobil Corp, they stated that they will be expanding capacity along the U.S. Gulf Coast and plan to invest in $20 billion over the next 10 years and crating over 45,000 jobs. Exxon-Mobile went on to say that many of these are high-skilled, high-paying jobs averaging about $100,000 a year. They also went on to say that the creation of these jobs would have a “multiplier effect” creating more jobs in these communities to service these new investments. This is how capitalism works America. President Donald Trump congratulated Exxon-Mobile and stated, “This is exactly the kind of investment, economic development and job creation that will help put Americans back to work.”
Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) is expanding its manufacturing capacity along the U.S. Gulf Coast through planned investments of $20 billion over a 10-year period to take advantage of the American energy revolution, Darren Woods, chairman and chief executive officer, said Monday.
The projects, at 11 proposed and existing sites, are expected to generate thousands of new high-paying jobs and $20 billion in increased economic activity in Texas and Louisiana, Woods said, highlighting the company’s Growing the Gulf initiative in a keynote speech today at the CERAWeek 2017 conference.
“Importantly, Growing the Gulf also creates jobs and lasting economic benefits for the communities where they’re located,” Woods said. “All told, we expect these 11 projects to create over 45,000 jobs. Many of these are high-skilled, high-paying jobs averaging about $100,000 a year. And these jobs will have a multiplier effect, creating many more jobs in the communities that service these new investments.”
But the Democrat-media complex is so quick to give Barack Obama the credit for this and not President Donald Trump. The Obama water carrying ABC News wrote, “But Exxon’s expansion plan was hatched long before Trump entered the White House: investments began in 2013, during Barack Obama’s presidency, and are expected to continue through at least 2022, according to Exxon.” REALLY? As if fossil fuel related jobs would have ever been created in an Obama administration or Hillary Clinton. GET REAL. Who honestly has the audacity but the liberal MSM to think that fossil fuel jobs and investment would have taken place under a presidency that loathed oil.
Presidents do not generally create jobs, unless you are Donald Trump and actually get personally involved in negotiations with companies and keep jobs in America as opposed to going elsewhere, what presidents do is to create an environment conducive to business. That is what Trump has done. There is no way under the liberal war on coal and energy that Exxon-Mobile would have ever pulled the trigger on this.
But Exxon’s expansion plan was hatched long before Trump entered the White House: investments began in 2013, during Barack Obama’s presidency, and are expected to continue through at least 2022, according to Exxon.
Still, during a keynote speech Monday at an oil and gas industry conference in Houston, Woods gave credit to the Trump administration.
THIS IS A COUP BY THE LEFT FOLKS …
So this is what the peaceful transition of power looks like when it comes to the LEFT, huh? Geraldo Rivera says that “Obama political operatives have plated land mines”in an effort obviously to explode on the Trump presidency.
BTW Geralso, if this is legal … then we now live in a Banana Republican for a president like Obama can use the power of the federal government against his enemies.

President Donald Trump Tweets Obama Wire Tapped Him …”Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
IF THE MEDIA WANTS ITS WATERGATE, HERE IT IS … DO YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO INVESTIGATE IT?
This morning President Donald Trump tweeted out the following bombshell … that the Obama Administration “wire tapped” the Trump Towers during the election. Whether this is true or not, this begins to make some sense. As Rush Limbaugh stated the other day, Obama was waging a silent coup by setting land mines along the way as he was in his way out the door. It would make sense that there were wire taps as how has there been so much so-called info on Trump admin individuals. Then there is of course the crimes that are being committed by the purposeful, wanted and intended leaks to the media. This entire anti-Trump attack was obviously a concerted and planned event. So who do you think was responsible for such a “community organized” coup?
Here is your Watergate MSM, it just happens to be a Democrat who appears to have been committing the crimes, do you have the guts to do your job and fairly investigate this story? Or are you going to just act like the liberal sycophants that you are and defend Obama? This is what you have been waiting for all your lives, its worse than Watergate … do your job, or just shut up forever.
Yup, just like Obama never had anything to do with or knew noting about “Fast & Furious” or the fact that conservative Tea Party non-profit organizations were targeted by Obama’s IRS. Former Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes tweeted earlier in the day that: “No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.” I guess it all depends on what is, is. Its not the president who ordered the wire tap, its was one of his minions.
Former President Obama on Saturday denied President Trump’s accusation that Obama had Trump Tower phones tapped in the weeks before the November 2016 election.
“Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false,” said Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president.
UPDATE II: The Democrat media complex comes to the defense of Barack Obama and uses the term “false”.
At this point we have no idea is this story is tru or false, yet some how the MSM already knows that it is false. We know that there was a FISA request. The MSM should want to be all over this story to find the truth. Yet, they have already determined that its a false comment. HOW THEY HELL DO THEY KNOW ITS FALSE? If the situation was reversed they would already be looking to impeach Trump.
Mark Levin: “The Question is: Was Obama Surveilling Top Trump Campaign Officials During the Election?” (Audio)
IF THE MSM MEDIA WANTS THEIR WATERGATE, THEY NEED TO INVESTIGATE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION …
During Conservative talk show radio host Mark Levin’s show he stated the following as Democrats, the LEFT, the MSM and weak kneed Republicans went after ridiculous charges against AG Jeff Sessions,“There’s a much bigger scandal here: We have a prior administration. Barack Obama and his surrogates, who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the… intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public.”
Thus we had a sitting president going after a political enemy using the FISA court and the powers fo the federal government. The below is a must listen to audio tape. Please inform yourself and do so. As Instapundit opines, I THINK TRUMP NEEDS TO APPOINT A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS CHARGE. Mark Levin: Was Obama Using NSA Against Trump During 2016 Campaign? LBJ used government resources to spy on opponents. Why should we think Obama wouldn’t?
About Obama’s efforts against Trump: “There’s a much bigger scandal here: We have a prior administration. Barack Obama and his surrogates, who are supporting Hillary Clinton and her party, the Democratic Party. Who were using the… intelligence activities to surveil members of the Trump campaign, and to put that information out in the public. Those are police state tactics. Nothing Flynn or Sessions has done is even in the same category as that,” Levin said.
“The question is: Was Obama surveilling top Trump campaign officials during the election?” he asked.
“We absolutely know this is true, the FBI did a preliminary criminal investigation based on a potential connection between a server in Trump Tower and a couple of Russian banks. That turned out to be a dry hole, but one of the most outrageous things I’ve ever seen… totally uncovered by the media. Instead of closing the investigation, the Obama administration tried to turn it into a FISA court investigation in June . Apparently the first application they submitted named Trump.”
“Even the FISA court said no. There wasn’t enough evidence to make out probable cause involving Donald Trump,” he said. “In the middle of the campaign the administration was actively having Trump investigated.”
The MSM continually wants their WATERGATE, yet they only want it if it is the GOP that is being investigated. NOTE TO MSM … INVESTIGATE OBAMA AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR WATERGATE!!!
If the reports are true — and they certainly appear to be — Obamagate is 100 times bigger than Watergate.
In short, a sitting president wiretapped the nominee of the opposition party, before the election, using the security apparatus of the federal government.
