S&P 500, Nasdaq Surge to Record Highs, DOW Up 250+ as US and Mexico Strike Trade Deal

ANOTHER WIN FOR PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP AND AMERICA …

The Trump administration and Mexico have negotiated a new trade deal to replace NAFTA and the markets are gaining in a huge way. Candidate Trump promised during the 2016 presidential campaign that he would end NAFTA and replace it with a better deal for America and American workers. He has done it! And the markets loved it and surged on the news. The S&P 500 gained 0.8% to close at 2,896.74, a record high. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 0.9% to an all-time high, breaking above 8,000 points for the first time. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 259.29 points to 26,049.64.

Stocks jumped on Monday as the United States and Mexico closed a new trade deal, potentially removing a source of uncertainty that had been plaguing investors for months.

The S&P 500 gained 0.8 percent to close at 2,896.74 — a record high — with materials and financials as the best-performing sectors. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 0.9 percent to an all-time high, breaking above 8,000 points for the first time, as Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet rose. Tech’s gains led the Nasdaq to close at 8,017.90.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 259.29 points to 26,049.64 as Caterpillar outperformed. Monday also marked the first time since Feb. 1 that the Dow closed above 26,000.

“The market has been buffeted with a lot of headwinds lately, and the biggest one is trade,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley FBR. “If you were to take trade out of the picture, you would have a smoother ride higher in this market.”

President Donald Trump said the deal would be called The United States-Mexico Trade agreement, leaving behind the 24-year-old NAFTA name. “The name NAFTA has a bad connotation because the United States was hurt very badly by NAFTA,” he said. Trump added that the deal with Mexico is also very helpful for farmers and manufacturers. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the deal must be approved by Congress before being implemented.

Democrat NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Amerca “Was Never That Great” VIDEO

THIS IS WHAT THE LEFT REALLY THINKS OF AMERICA FOLKS …

How long will it take for this to become a political ad … Vote for Democrats because they think America was never that great.

Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo stated at a during a speech where he was pandering to women, that “We are not going to make America great again, it was never that great.” As he made this moronic comments, gasps came from the audience. REALLY GOV. CUOMO? This is the lengths that the LEFT will go with their hate Trump rhetoric at all cost. Is what the Democrat motto is for the 2018 midterm elections, America, It was Never that great? What kind of a foll would make such a comment? So I guess the men who fought in World War II and saved the word from the Nazis and Fascists were the Never that Great Generation? What an ass. Sorry, there is no double talk or walking these comments back and claiming he was taken out of context. According to Cuomo, America will never be great until everyone is fully engaged. WTF does that mean? America, this is what Democrats and liberal media not only think of America, but what they think of Americans as it is “We the People” who make up America.

Now Cuomo is feeling the backlash and he will never be able to shake this comment.

This coming from a political hack who is only governor of NY and has any political career due to his father’s coattails and reputation, Mario Cuomo. Do you know what that sound is Gov. Cuomo? Your political aspirations of being president just went down the toilet. Try selling that crap to the hard working men and women of America in every other state in America other than New York, California and the other America hating Leftist dark blue states.

President Trump Blasts NATO Allies, Says “Germany is Totally Controlled by Russia.” (VIDEO)

THIS IS WHY TRUMP WON, HE MAKES SO MUCH SENSE TO SO MANY AMERICANS AND SAYS WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN THINKING FOR YEARS …

President Donald Trump calls out NATO allies, especially Germany, and says … so we are spending all this money to protect you from Russia and you are making billion dollar energy deals with Russia? We are protecting Germany, France and other countries but you are paying Russia billions. Trump went on to say that hardly seems appropriate.

We have been paying all this money for years and no other President wanted to confront the issue. Trump stated that this was unfair the the United States and its tax payers.

Trump said, “Germany is totally controlled by Russia.”

Happy Birthday America, July 4th 2018 … Remember America, Its About Freedom, Liberty and Independence

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!

Happy Birthday America, to the greatest nation on Earth, the Home of the Free and the Land of the Brave. On this July 4th, 2018, please remember on this day that it is each generations responsibility to maintain the freedoms and liberties that our Founding Fathers and Our Creator bestowed on us and with their sacrifices and so many others along the way. America, freedom is never free. As you celebrate this 4th of July with family and friends, please remember that it is not the government, but our Creator provides those rights as set forth in The Declaration of Independence  …  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Remember the sacrifice and the bravery of so many who fought against the British crown to create an Independent country of the United States of America. So many fought and gave their lives to protect and maintain those freedoms. TODAY, it is “We the People’s” job to maintain American independence as stated in the Declaration of Independence, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” America, that means that government gets its power from the people, not the other way around. NEVER FORGET THAT. America is the greatest nation on earth, don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL by Ray Charles

 

The Declaration of Independence: IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. [...]

Lee Greenwood – God Bless the USA

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. [...]

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

My daddy served in the army
Where he lost his right eye
But he flew a flag out in our yard
Until the day that he died
He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me
To grow up and live happy
In the land of the free.

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July

Hey Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, it’s gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue

Justice will be served
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
`Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way

U.S. Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Trump Travel Ban in 5-4 Decision

SCOTUS VICTORY FOR TRUMP TRAVEL BAN … MAKING AMERICA SAFE AGAIN.

VIA CNBC, On Tuesday the SCOTUS ruled 5-4 in favor of President Donald Trump’s order to restrict travel from several seven countries to the United States. Those countries include, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. As reported by CNBC,  “The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Chief Justice Roberts says. “The text says nothing about religion.” President Trump lauded the victory, while the LEFT lost their collective minds. The Left and the MSM call it a Muslim ban even though according to the Pew Research Center in 2010, there were 50 Muslim-majority countries in the world. According to the math, only 90% of Muslim countries are not on the banned list as not even the LEFT could say that North Korea and Venezuela were Muslim counties.

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in favor of President Donald Trump’s September order to restrict travel from several majority Muslim countries to the United States.

In the 5-4 opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court found that Trump’s travel restriction fell “squarely” within the president’s authority. The court rejected claims that the ban was motivated by religious hostility.

“The [order] is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”

The case, Trump v. Hawaii, has been central to the administration’s travel policy, presenting a key test of the president’s campaign promise to restrict immigration and secure America’s borders.

The LEFT loses their mind over this travel ban, seriously? Let’s take a look at those on the list, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Really, we should think that they are properly vetting individuals, really? Libya, thanks to Obama’s destabilization of that country, it is in chaos. Somalia? Do we even know who is running it other than war lords? Syria, and Yemen? C’mon folks.

But as per CNN, President Barack Obama did the same thing and had many of these same countries on his ban list. So why is the LEFT all of a sudden going crazy when the Obamamessiah pretty much did the same? TDS of course.

In December 2015, President Obama signed into law a measure placing limited restrictions on certain travelers who had visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, or Syria on or after March 1, 2011. Two months later, the Obama administration added Libya, Somalia, and Yemen to the list, in what it called an effort to address “the growing threat from foreign terrorist fighters.”
