The democrat presidential candidates talk like our economy is in a recession!  What’s the truth?   

During these first debates, I’ve heard many of these democrat presidential candidates make all kinds of wild claims about our economy.

“Many people are forced to work two and three jobs!”

“The middle-class is being left behind in this economy!”

“The only thing Trump ever points to about the economy is the stock market!  What good does that do the millions of people who don’t own stocks?”

Then we have the candidates who claim President Trump is taking credit for an economy launched by Barack Obama!

dems 12

So, what is the truth?

Well…, if these words are coming out of the mouths of democrat politicians, then “the truth” is really not an option!

dems 2

But don’t take my word for it.  Let’s look at the facts.

According to Suzanne O’Halloran, of FOX Business News, “Investors soaked up U.S. stocks during the month giving the Dow Jones Industrial Average its best June in 81 years while the S&P notched its best [month] in 64 years.”

Now it is true that many people don’t own stocks…, but many do too!

If you have a 401k, or you have a pension at work, you’re invested in the stock market.

And the markets are a fairly good indicator of how the economy is generally doing…, at least it has been in the past…, before these “fake newsers” have chosen to abandon the truth and promote their own liberal agenda.

“The last time the S&P 500 performed this well, Eisenhower was making the first presidential appearance to be seen on color television!”

Well that’s putting it in perspective!

Let’s take a look at the jobs picture now.

“According to the Labor Department, 5 million Americans work more than one job, a figure that hasn’t changed much in recent years and remains lower than it was during the 1990’s boom.”

Those 5 million people represent a lowly 2.2% of American workers…, hardly “many people,” as the democrats claim.

According to Heather Long of The Washington Post, “U.S. unemployment fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest [overall] since 1969.”

That’s the lowest in FIFTY years, in case you’re counting.

“The United States has more job openings than unemployed people, a situation some economists call “full employment.”

The unemployment rate for African Americans is at its lowest rate EVER!

The unemployment rate for Latino Americans is at its lowest rate EVER!

The unemployment rate for Asian Americans is at its lowest rate EVER!

Did I just say EVER?  EVER is a long time.

How about women?  How are they doing?

According to Elaine Parker, of RealClear Politics, “Women Are Winning in the Trump Economy!”

“By almost every economic measure, women are flourishing in today’s economy. Female unemployment is currently at a 50-year low of 3.9 percent, less than half the rate it was as recently as President Obama’s second term.”

“The number of women-owned businesses has [also] grown by 114%, and… there are an estimated 11.6 million women-owned businesses, about 40 % of the total businesses in the country.”

Heather Long adds, “Low unemployment is forcing employers to raise pay and become more aggressive about hiring and training workers. Average hourly earnings rose 3.2% in the past year, well above inflation, and lower wage workers enjoyed some of the largest gains as companies scrambled to fill jobs and many states have raised their minimum wage.”

Now that’s how you raise the minimum wage…, not by passing some law.

Interest rates are still relatively low, and they’re expected to stay there for a while.

The price of gas is low…, and according to Javier Blas of Microsoft News, “America turned into a net oil exporter last week, breaking almost 75 years of continued dependence on foreign oil and marking a pivotal — even if likely brief — moment toward what U.S. President Donald Trump has branded as ‘energy independence.’”

“The shale revolution has transformed oil wildcatters into billionaires and the U.S. into the world’s largest petroleum producer, surpassing Russia and Saudi Arabia. The power of OPEC has been diminished, undercutting one of the major geopolitical forces of the last half century.”

“Oil historians said the country has been a net oil importer since the mid-1940s, when Harry Truman was in the White House.”

That’s over 75 years, just in case your counting.

Along with jobs and wages, most Americans saw their taxes go down, thanks to The President’s tax cuts.  The middle-class has definitely not been “left behind in this economy!”

And as far as Barack Obama being able to claim any credit for this economy…, I think I saw him wandering around, still searching for the “magic wand” that President Trump apparently found!

dems 15

So, we can see that by any measure, that President Trump’s economy is not only good, but in most cases historically good…, all-time good…, and just a couple of years ago, unimaginably good.

So there you have it.

Who appears to be lying?

Me, or our collection of democrat candidates, along with the rest of the democrats and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

If I wasn’t able to convince you after all of this that the democrats have a problem with the truth…, then you might be a liberal…, and I have this bridge I’m selling if you’re interested.

WINNING!

Let’s see a show of hands!

I’ve noticed that the moderators of the recent Democrat debates like to poll the candidates by having them raise their hands if they agree on an issue or with a statement.

raising 12

So MrEricksonRules has decided to take his own poll of noteworthy democrats.

I asked those polled to:

“PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL WIN RE-ELECTION IN A LANDSLIDE, AGAINST ANY LOSER THE DEMOCRATS FINALLY DECIDE ON”

Here are their responses!

Candidates raise hands at the first U.S. 2020 presidential election Democratic candidates debate in Miami, Florida, U.S.,

Sometimes there’s just no denying the inevitable!

KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

If you have a “God problem…,” you have a real problem!

O-M-G.  Sorry.  It was too easy.  Let’s proceed.

With the democrats, it’s always about perception rather than substance.

It’s always about words, not about actions.

A recent article by Caleb Parke, of Fox News, asks, “Rise of the religious left?”  Then states, “The Democrat Party hires faith outreach director to address ‘God problem.’”

God 1

I would have to say that “the religious left” must be considered an oxymoron!  At least in the terms being put forward by “the left,” and how we perceive the term “religious.”

Although there are many different “religions.”

“Religion” can be defined as “a particular system of faith and/or worship.”

In the case of our liberal friends, many practice a “creator-less ‘big bang’ religion,”

a “religion of human evolution,”

a “religion of human caused global warming,”

God 7

God 9

God 8

a “religion of science,”

a “religion of death and devaluing life (abortion),

God 10

“religions grounded in nature,”

God 11

actual “devil worship,”

God 11

“designer ‘create your own version of Christianity’ Christianity,”

“genuinely confused Christians,”

“intentionally fraudulent Christians,”

the “religion of atheism,” or the “religion of being anti-God,” among others.

God 5

God 2

In these terms, yes…, the left could be considered quite “religious!”

“In 2012, the last election Democrats won, a headline from their convention read: ‘Democrats boo God.’  In 2016, they heckled a preacher during the opening prayer.”

They booed God?

saywaht1

say what again

Seriously?

“It’s a perception they’ve been trying to change since, especially on the 2020 campaign trail.”

There’s that word “perception” again.  Yes…, they want to change the perception, not the reality.

“Political pundits said Democrats have a ‘God problem’ and their latest move shows they are taking steps to solve it.”

Well, yes and no.  What they really want to do is solve the ramifications of “the problem.”  They don’t really want to solve the problem, nor do they actually believe there is a real problem.

“The democrats have hired former Washington, D.C. anti-Trump pastor, Rev. Derrick Harkins, who held a similar position in 2012 and has been the senior vice president of Union Theological Seminary in New York City, which recently celebrated ‘rejoicing in the queerness of God.’”

Well isn’t that special?

God 12

God 13

‘“We take seriously the relationships that we have with faith communities around this country,’ Harkins told Religion News Service, adding that faith ‘will be a priority going into 2020, but even more importantly, beyond 2020.’”

I’m sure you do, and I’m sure it will.

“Over the past few elections, Democrats have alienated themselves further from religious [meaning Christian and Jewish] voters, partly due to stances it takes on social issues like abortion and gay marriage, not to mention its focus on urban communities that tend to have lower church attendance than their rural counterparts. While [President] Trump took 80 percent of the white evangelical vote, democrat presidential hopefuls are gearing up for more faith outreach, especially in historically black churches and within minority communities.”

Mr. Parke has that right…, and actions speak louder than words.

If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, then it’s probably a duck.

So if they walk like they’re against The God of The Bible, and they talk like they’re against The God of The Bible, then they’re probably against The God of The Bible.

God 4

“Recently Democratic presidential candidate Kristin Gillibrand said she doesn’t believe the GOP is a ‘faith-driven party’ because their policies go against her idea of what Christianity is all about, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg questioned Trump’s faith and called him out for hypocrisy.”

I believe Ms. Gillibrand would fall into the “genuinely confused Christians” category, while Mayor Pete would fall into the category of “designer ‘create your own version of Christianity’ Christianity.”

God 3

‘“Within the Democratic Party there is a huge spectrum of deeply faithful people,’ Serene Jones, president of Union Theological Seminary, told Fox News Religion Correspondent Lauren Green.”

And we have already discussed this “huge spectrum” of “deeply faithful” people.

‘“For too long, when we look at religion in America, we have associated with just politics and the religious communities that have been associated with the Republican Party and conservative politics…and there is a strong progressive Christian voice that is being spoken and lifted up and demanding to be heard.’”

The keyword in “progressive Christian” is “progressive.”

“Jones added progressives are ‘very open about the kind of Christianity they profess.’”

And exactly what “kind of Christianity” would that be, Ms. Jones?

The “kind of Christianity” without God?

The “kind of Christianity” that lets you make it up as you go along?

Stay thirsty my friends…, but don’t drink the liberal Kool Aide!

WINNING!

I may not be the smartest guy in the world, but I do know the name of our next president won’t be “Beto!”

According to Alex Seitz-Wald of NBC News, “An early straw poll of members of the progressive group MoveOn.org shows a wide-open competition for liberal voters in the 2020 Democratic presidential contest, with Rep. Beto O’Rourke narrowly beating out former Vice President Joe Biden.”

First of all, calling the group MoveOn.org “progressive” is like calling the Flat Earth Society “progressive.”

MoveOn.org is a group of liberals who haven’t had a politically “progressive” thought in their lives.

Second of all, the number one vote getter was actually Mr./Mrs./Ms./Mx./M?. “I don’t know yet” or Mr./Mrs./Ms./Mx./M?. “Someone not listed here as an option.”  This was represented by 28.8% of their vote.

Other than that, out of the 30 potential candidates listed, the results were:

Beto O’Rourke: 15.6 percent

Joe Biden: 14.9 percent

Bernie Sanders: 13.1 percent

Kamala Harris: 10 percent

Elizabeth Warren: 6.4 percent

Sherrod Brown: 2.9 percent

Amy Klobuchar: 2.8 percent

Michael Bloomberg: 2.7 percent

Cory Booker: 2.6 percent

Didn’t understand the question: .2 percent

It’s another sign of O’Rourke’s surprising popularity among national Democrats.

It makes perfect “liberal sense.”  The person can’t even beat Ted Cruz in Texas for a Senate seat, but he’d be a good choice for the democrat candidate for president though.

It’s still early yet, but MoveOn endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary. That year, 78 percent of MoveOn members voted to back Sanders over Hillary Clinton.

I have to give MoveOn credit for not supporting Mrs. Clinton (Satan’s grandmother), but on the other hand, I have to question their support for Bernie’s overtly socialist agenda.

“While the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president remains wide open and MoveOn’s endorsement is up for grabs, MoveOn members and progressives across the country are clear: They’re looking for candidates who will rally voters around a progressive vision of building a country where every American can thrive, whether we’re white, black, or brown, rich or poor,” said Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn Political Action.

Translation: They’re looking for candidates who can get enough votes to win.  They would prefer a candidate with a socialist agenda, who will punish those who are successful, while redistributing the wealth so that everyone can enjoy a standard of living barely above the poverty level.

“We’ll be challenging prospective candidates to inspire us with big ideas in the months to come, including at a series of events in early voting states in early 2019,” Sheyman added.

Translation: They’ll be challenging prospective candidates to inspire them with outrageously stupid ideas that Kool-Aide drinking liberals across the country will happily gulp down.

Alex Seitz-Wald adds that, “MoveOn, which was founded back during Bill Clinton’s presidency, is one of the largest progressive online organizing groups with millions of members across the country, so its endorsement has been coveted in the past.”

Let the race begin to see who can be the wackiest lefty liberal who could still get elected.
