I promised awhile ago that I would keep you up to date on the good and bad things Trumps has done for this Country. I am not interested in the gossip and what the main stream media says, since they don’t check out their facts, and to be honest, are predjudiced against him. So here are some of the facts I have accumulated.
JUDICIAL: Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. He is one of Trump’s most significant presidential victories. However, his judicial influence does not stop at the Supreme Court. There are currently an estimated 147 vacancies in the Federal Judiciary, Trump has so far appointed 24 judges. Since federal judges have life tenure once appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate, Trump’s appointments will have a lasting impact on American public policy. Most of his judicial appointees are deeply conservative and favor a strict interpretation of the Constitution. This is what our Founders worked so hard for and what they expected according to what I have read in the Federalist Papers.
THE TRUMP EFFECT: The popular press will not say so, but America is on the rebound. Call it an awakening, a rediscovery of founding principles, the restoration of respect for our Constitution, recognition that RULE OF LAW, ECONOMIC GROWTH, BORDER AND NATIONAL SECURITY, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SAFETY, INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, AND THE SANCTITY OF LIFE ALL MATER. Call it the end of neglect. Call it the TRUMP EFFECT. I don’t know how anyone can argue that we were sadly in need of improvement and restoration in these areas.
1: Biggest tax cut in 37 years, inuring to the benefit of virtually every American, lowering individual and corporate rates by percentages not seen since President Ronald Regan.
2. Stock market on a tear, surging 31 percent in the first year, with even mainstream media outlets like CNBC calling it “the best performance during the first year of a president since Franklin Roosevelt.”
3. Record-setting roll backs of restrictive regulations, lowering transaction costs and so-called X-inefficiency, eliminating delays and raising profits across the economy;
4. Dramatic upticks in overall employment across every demographic, age and race to region and income level, along with rising wage growth. I just read the other day that Blacks and Latinos have the highest employment rate ever recorded. So why would either race ever vote Democratic again?
5.Annual 2017 GDP growth over the final three quarters of 3.1 percent, 3.2 and 2.6 percent respectively, despite hurricanes economists predicted would deter growth.
6. Resurgent manufacturing, mining, energy, and service sectors, showcasing outsized 2017 growth, including mining up by 28.6 percent, service industries up seven percent, retail up by 5.6 percent, technical services up by more than five percent and health care up by nearly as much, plus high projections for 2018.
7, As the stock market and overall economy have soared, even before the tax cut impact is felt, other intangibles are stabilizing the US economy and returning income to average Americans, including:
A. A decisive end to Obamacare’s insurance mandate producing no penalty in 2019.
B. Predicted re-normalization of Federal Reserve Policy, including regular rate hikes and slight inflation.
C. Millions of dollars in bonuses paid to millions of Americans in 2017, (Walmart is on Co. I know of)and more predicted for 2018, what Democratic House Minorty Leader Nancy Polosi (D-CA_ glibly called “crumbs”. In my opinion, any bonus and any pay raise, no mater how much, is a plus and something I wouldn’t have had otherwise and the fact that almost no extra bonuses were paid during the Democratic years. (and they are supposed to be for the workers?)
I have more to add another day. I was looking, but couldn’t find just now, how much more credit parents are receiving for each child when they file their taxes in 2018, I know it’s almost if not doubled. That should make quite a difference in families. The lower Cooporate tax should make a big difference for small family cooporations.
This does not even mention the wonderful things Trump has done to cut down on abortions in this country and elsewhere. I will mention those next time. Unfortunately we could have ended the killing of unborn babies over 20 weeks old, if it had not been for some pro-death senators. This is to our Country’s shame, and can be changed if we vote for pro-life candidates.
These facts come from the Spring, 2018 AMAC Advantage magazine, with articles by Robert Charles with my opinions added.
As JFK said, ” Ask not what your Country can do for you but what you can do for your Country.” Perhaps Pres. Trump can bring that attitude back again.
GOD BLESS AMERICA AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
