Trump reminded Republicans and Conservatives alike,  if you let the Democrats win they will repeal the tax cuts and repeal the Second Amendment. Don’t think for one second the LEFT and Democrats will the all too willing aid of the liberal MSM would not attempt it.

Trump reminded CPAC that he is fulfilling his campaign promises to Make America Great Again.

NY Times Poll: 51% of Americans Now Approve of Trump Tax Cuts Up from 37% in December


According to a recent New York Times/Survey Monkey poll, 51% of Americans now approve of the Trump/GOP tax cut law. That is up from 46 percent in January and 37 percent in December. The lower approval ratings occurred prior to the law being passed and the misinformation spread by the liberal MSM and Democrats. Since the passage of the tax cut law, over 3 million Americans have received bonuses from their companies since the passage of the Trump/GOP tax cuts. Also, all Americans will see if their payroll checks have increased as companies were to adjust the tax tables by February 15, 2018. Look for the support of these tax cuts to continue to increase as Americans come to realize they did receive benefits and that Democrats lied  to them. Also, keep in mind that not one Democrat in either the House or the Senate voted for Americans to keep more of their money.


The tax overhaul that President Trump signed into law now has more supporters than opponents, buoying Republican hopes for this year’s congressional elections.

The growing public support for the law coincides with an eroding Democratic lead when voters are asked which party they would like to see control Congress. And it follows an aggressive effort by Republicans, backed by millions of dollars of advertising from conservative groups, to persuade voters of the law’s benefits.

That campaign has rallied support from Republicans, in particular. But in contrast with many other issues — including Mr. Trump’s job approval rating — it also appears to be winning over some Democrats. Support for the law remains low among Democrats, but it has doubled over the past two months and is twice as strong as their approval of Mr. Trump today.

Over all, 51 percent of Americans approve of the tax law, while 46 percent disapprove, according to a poll for The New York Times conducted between Feb. 5 and Feb. 11 by SurveyMonkey. Approval has risen from 46 percent in January and 37 percent in December, when the law was passed.

Other recent polls have shown the same upswings for the law by the Americans people, including a Monmouth University Poll in late January that found support for it had risen to 44 percent nationally, from 26 percent in December. The Democrats are going to have a lot of explaining to do in the 2018 midterm elections.

POLITICO/Morning Consult Poll : GOP Gains on Generic Ballot & President Trump’s Approval Moves Upward


2018 midterm election blue Democrat tsunami? It appears that the so-called blue tsunami may not even be a small wave. It would seem according to the trending polls, it might just be a red wave. What a difference a Trump/GOP tax plan and growing economy makes. Or as Nancy Pelosi and Democrats call it, a “crumb” plan. According to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll, Republicans now lead Democrats in the Generic ballot 39% to 38%. The tide is changing as Americans are realizing Donald Trump is Making America great again.

Who would actually want Nancy “crumbs” Pelosi to be the Speaker?

The change in the electorate is remarkable. President Donald Trump has led the way with the GOP with a robust economy, low unemployment numbers, optimism from business and employees, a tax cut law that will affect 90% of Americans and bonus checks to millions of people. Trump and the GOP has been right on immigration and the dismantling of ISIS and their caliphate. Previously, in mid-December, 39% of voters said they trusted Democrats more to handle the economy, compared to 38% who said Republicans. Today following a booming economy, 43% say Republicans and only 32% say Democrats. Congressional Republicans also have a 9-point advantage on handling jobs, a 6-point lead on dealing with immigration and a 19-point lead on handling national security. These numbers for Republicans are only to get more positive as the economy grows.

Republicans have erased the Democratic advantage on the generic congressional ballot in a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll that, for the first time since April, also shows President Donald Trump’s approval rating equaling the percentage of voters who disapprove of his job performance.

Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate. Nearly a quarter of voters, 23 percent, are undecided.

Voters are split almost evenly along party lines. Democratic voters break for their party, 85 percent to 5 percent, while Republicans similarly favor the GOP, 84 percent to 8 percent. Among independent voters, 26 percent would vote for the Democrat, 25 percent for the Republican and nearly half, 49 percent, are undecided.

The GOP’s 1-point advantage comes after three months of tracking in which Democrats maintained a lead ranging between 2 and 10 points on the generic ballot. That has been generally smaller than the party’s lead in other public surveys: The most recent RealClearPolitics average shows Democrats ahead by 7 points on the generic ballot, though that’s down from a high of 13 points late last year.

A previous Monmouth poll had Democrats only ahead by 2 points, after previously having a double digit lead. Who in their right mind would want Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House again? If America actually makes that choice, say good bye to the gains of the economy.

Starbucks to Raise Employee’s Pay & Benefits Because of TRUMP-GOP Tax Cuts


Via CNBC comes this amazing admission from one of America’s most liberal corporations; Starbucks will raise their employee’s pay and benefits in 2018 thanks to the PRESIDENT TRUMP-GOP tax cuts. That is correct, Starbucks actually stated so. I guess President Trump is “making Starbucks Great Again” too. A note to all of the Starbucks liberal employees and baristas, it was Trump, yes, that man you so love to hate that made it happen. It was also the work of the Republicans in the House and Senate who provided this for you as well. Not one Democrat voted for the tax plan that allowed you to keep more of your own money and by reducing the corporate tax rate, allowed for your employer to pass the benefits to you.  You might want to remember that in the 2018 midterms and 2020 elections.


Starbucks will use some of the savings from the new U.S. corporate tax cuts to give domestic employees pay raises, company stock and expanded benefits with a combined worth of more than $250 million, the company said on Wednesday.

With the announcement, the world’s biggest coffee chain joins companies like Walmart, Apple, Comcast, and American Airlines in sharing their tax savings with employees.

Starbucks is known for giving its workers, which it calls “partners,” more generous pay and benefits than other mass-market restaurants and retailers.

“Investing in our partners has long been our strategy, and due to the recent changes in U.S. tax law, we are able to accelerate some significant partner investments,” Chief Executive Kevin Johnson said in a letter to employees.

Seattle-based Starbucks said it will give hourly and salaried employees, who received pay raises in January, a second wage increase in April.

It is giving additional stock grants to eligible employees on April 16. Coffee shop workers will receive a grant of at least $500 and store managers will receive $2,000 grants.

Democrats & Schumer Blink … End Government Shutdown … Trump & GOP Victorious


In the game of political chicken, Democrats blinked first and voted to end the government shutdown. Yes, this was a win for President Trump and the Republican party. Democrats reading the tea leaves and the polls knew that they were overwhelming on the wrong side of shutting a government down for DACA. Even the New York Times admits the Democrats blinked. Democrats overplayed their hand and had to cave. The Democrats were prioritizing illegal aliens over the U.S. military. Even the most insane in the Democrat party knew that was a losing battle ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Ingraham: Trump shuts down the Democrats

The Senate on Monday was on track to vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn’t include immigration language they are seeking.

Democrats on Friday opposed a bill to fund the government through Feb. 16 because it didn’t include language to help the Dreamers, that group of immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

But Democrats changed their mind on Monday, after getting assurances from Republicans that the Senate would work on immigration next as long as the government was reopened, and hold votes soon. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said that was enough to get Democrats to support the spending bill.

“We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement,” Schumer said.

The Far-Left is livid at Democrat Minority Leader Schumer after making the deal to reopen the government after just 3 days. They are calling him a sell-out. Thus it went from the #ShumerShutdown to the #SchumerSellout. Is the Democrat party ready for that civil war they are about to have come 2020?

Liberal activists are furious with Democratic senators after most of them agreed to reopen the federal government without a firm path to shielding young immigrants from deportation.

As the third day of the shutdown dawned, liberal advocates and immigration groups fired off a joint statement blasting as “unacceptable” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s offer merely to hold a vote on immigration — with no promises for action from the House or White House — in exchange for Democratic votes to reopen the government. But three hours later, Democratic senators agreed to just those terms — sparking anger on the left.

But activist groups that have provided his caucus crucial firepower during fights against GOP health care and tax bills were not buying that explanation.

Murshed Zaheed, political director of the liberal group CREDO Action, said Democrats’ decision shows Schumer’s willingness to betray progressives.

“Call it the #SchumerSellout,” he said in an interview. “Hashtagged.”

From Yahoo News comes, ‘Dreamers’ disappointed that Congress deferred DACA deal. Hey dreamers, what do you think the “D” in DACA actually stands for?
