Blue Wave Dissipating as Trump Wins Surge
Just as soon as they realized Hillary lost, liberals started looking for a blue wave to save the day. Soon they will see it’s not happening.
In fact, social media buzzes 24/7 with Trump support, despite algorithms designed to silence conservatives.
Since the inauguration of President Trump, a myth has been spun by the mainstream news media that a political “Blue Wave” was going to surge across America in opposition to the President’s political agenda of the last two years. History showed similar trends had occurred under President Reagan in 1986, President Clinton in 1994, President Bush in 2006, and President Obama in 2010. Conventional wisdom, and 2017 off-year losses, were painting a grim picture for Republicans heading into the 2018 midterms. But the tide turned.
With the fiasco of the Kavanaugh confirmation, Democrat hopes quickly eroded. And we’re not talking the typical grassroots activists, but key members of the Democrat leadership. Examples include: ‘Madame’ Pelosi; ‘Mad’ Maxine; ‘Superfoot’ Holder; ‘Queen’ Hillary; ‘Spartacus’; Kamala ‘the Genius’; ‘Ladykiller’ Ellison; and ‘Jefe’ Tom. In fact, these leaders support using violence against Republicans as a weapon of intimidation in the 2018 midterms. Of course, this isn’t their first time employing this tactic.
Over the last couple weeks several stories that should have been headline news, but because it is a Republican administration in fractured times (and its Donald Trump in the White House), it is news that many in the mainstream news want spiked before the midterms.
Making America Great Again
As the New York Times tepidly reported, unemployment is under 4%!
The least educated American workers, who took the hardest hit in the Great Recession, were also among the slowest to harvest the gains of the recovery. Now they are a striking symbol of a strong economy.
The unemployment rate for those without a high school diploma fell to 5.1 percent in July, the Labor Department reported Friday, the lowest since the government began collecting data on such workers in 1992.
Over all in July, employers increased payrolls by 157,000, while the unemployment rate edged downward to 3.9 percent, near the 18-year low achieved in May.
The data echoed other positive economic news recently, including a report last week showing the economy grew by 4.1 percent in the second quarter.
What is happening?
Trump’s policies, and just as importantly, the expectation of Trump’s policies, ignited a manufacturing resurgence.
In the first 21 months of the Trump presidency, non farm employment grew by a seasonally adjusted 2.6%. In the same period, manufacturing employment grew by 3.1%, reversing the trend under Obama when overall employment grew faster than employment in the manufacturing sector.
Comparing the last 21 months of the Obama administration with the first 21 months of Trump’s, shows that under Trump’s watch, more than 10 times the number of manufacturing jobs were added.
Forbes reveals three factors that led to the manufacturing jobs renaissance:
First and foremost, Obama piled nothing but regulations on the business world. Obviously, investors were scared to lose their capital to a venture regulations might squash. However, Trump stepped in and cut the red tape. He even exceeded Reagan’s pace. Last, but not least, the Republican Congress helped Trump change the tax code in an unprecedented fashion.
President Trump delivered on a major overhaul of the tax code, including a significant cut to business taxes as well as a change to the treatment of overseas profits that incentivized the repatriation of some $300 billion in the first quarter of 2018 out of what the Federal Reserve estimates is $1 trillion in multinational profits held abroad.
Deregulation, tax cuts, and allowing government to stop hindering business pushed the United States back to the #1 position as the “world’s most competitive economy.”

Keeping America Great!
Just how good has manufacturing improved in America?
United States Steel workers are set to get the biggest wage jump in at least six years under a new deal negotiated with the company, providing early signs that gains from U.S. President Donald Trump’s clampdown on foreign imports are finally trickling down.
The agreement, reached on Monday, proposes a cumulative 14 percent wage increase over a four-year period, three sources familiar with details of the negotiations
It comes at a time when U.S. wages are growing at the fastest pace in more than nine years.
The steel industry is not alone! US consumer confidence is at a two-decade high, with a 4.2% GDP output.
In addition, as previously reported, California farmers have been engulfed in a 15-year ‘water war’ against the state government. President Trump campaigned on bringing water storage to a drought stricken Central Valley. This week the President followed through on the promise with an Executive Order to turn on the water pumps on the San Joaquin River Delta:
This action likely to lead to yet another legal fight with the soon-to-be womanizing Governor Gavin Newsom, the big-bully ‘substitute’ Attorney General Xavier Becerra, and an environmental movement that advocate feeding a vegan diet to carnivorous house pets.
Numbers don’t lie.
The crux of Trump’s success comes down to simple statistics: popularity amongst Hispanics is rising, as unemployment drops to its lowest levels (he carried over 30% in 2016); Trump’s African-American approval rating is at 36%, which continues to terrify Democrats; Asian Americans are outpacing all other ethnic groups in economic growth and
consumer spending power nationally, and as previously reported, Asian women in California have stepped up to lead the Republican political charge in California’s 2018 midterm elections; infact the GOP is enjoying an overall ‘numerical rebound’ amongst women; and lastly, it turns out those precious Millennials might be more Center-Right than most “experts” had predicted.

Potential ‘Worst Case’ Aftermath
The Democrats see their ideological failures coming to a head. Their 2018 poster-girl continues to make one PR-gaffe after another. If the Democrats were to win in November 2018, what is their agenda:
- Stop Trump
- Rollback 2017 Tax cuts
- Raise Taxes
- Return to the Paris Climate Accord
- Impeach Trump
- Impeach Kavanaugh
- Open Borders
- Provide $500/month ‘free-money’ to all citizens
- Universal Health Care
- Gun Control
- Tuition-Free College
- Elimination of college, credit cards, and personal debt
- Eliminate the Electoral College
- Legalization of all narcotics
- Massive spending increases
- Keep public school students in failing government programs
In other words, the Democrat Party wants to turn the entire country into…CALIFORNIA!
