    These numbers suggest that the cooked Presidential approval polls are pure, unadulterated B.S., because if the President was really that unpopular, the economic sentiment would not be this upbeat.

      Check the details, Guy. They are still lying. These numbers are based on 565 Democrats, 565 independents, and 352 Republicans. These numbers are actually too low. There is no way the party registrations are that disparate.

      Guy YES. The American people are not stupid. They know that Trump had no involvement in what happened in Virginia. He said what was necessary to be said and the Dems could not wait to use the Race Card. The Dems can’t get to Trump because he thinks big. While the Dems worry about racism around every corner Trump is busy trying to fix this nation so that everyone who wants to work will get a good job and therefore will be more positive about their future. Today the Dems said that we who support Trump are just as racist as he is and therefore just as responsible. The Dems should take a time out cause its not working for them.


      • BobinFL says:

        I was saying to my wife yesterday that I thought that real polling of the democrat base must be showing a problem as the economic outlook continues to improve and that what happened in VA appears contrived to gin up the base. Too many media people, government officials and pundits crying and waving their talking points within minutes of what happened. This polling, that I don’t think reflects reality as I think it understates the optimism many are feeling, only reinforces my initial feelings on what happened in VA.

      You hit it on the ECONOMIC NAIL!

      Folks the Left, Uniparty, Globalist, CoC, Big Club, MSM are dying slowly but surely! The Economic Train 🚂 has left the station and will not ever return back! 3% GDP is NOW the new norm. People laughed at the Atlanta Federal Reserve. Now they are considered the gold standard for future GDP predictions. None of this would ever have been possible if not for the Energy Revolution our President created singlehandedly.

      From the article linked above:

      Latest forecast: 3.7 percent — August 15, 2017

      The GDPNow model forecast for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the third quarter of 2017 is 3.7 percenton August 15, up from 3.5 percent on August 9. The forecast of the contribution of personal consumption expenditures to third-quarter real GDP growth increased from 1.91 percentage points to 1.97 percentage points after this morning’s retail sales release from the U.S. Census Bureau.

      I absolutely agree with Larry Schweikart that our GDP will reach 5% to 6%+ if Tax Reform and Infrastructure are done ✅. If Healthcare ever gets taken care of reaching Reagan’s largest GDP number of 7.2% would absolutely be attainable.

      The Republicans are screwed! They cannot allow the year to end and our President getting all the accolades for reaching 3% GDP in 2017 even with Barry’s 1st quarter 1.2% holding it back! Getting 3.7% in the third quarter coupled with 3.7% in the 4th and the 2nd quarter readjusted upwards, it can really happen.

      That is why Tax Reform and Infrastructure is a guarantee to happen because they need to be in the celebration and not on the outside looking in! Healthcare will continue to rot away with Lucifer in the AZ desert 🌵!

    This is why Pres. Trump will win in the long run. People vote with their pocketbooks. The left only have the Nazi tactics of name calling and dehumanizing. Just wait until you hear some targeted democrat low info voter saying something like “I don’t care if he’s a “Nazi”, I’m getting rich!”. It’s the economy that matters the most to a lot of people.

        All relations will improve when each part recognizes P45’s opportunity to advance yourself without need to bash your neighbor for trying to do the same! This includes corporate neighbors! Competition by displaying own skill and workmanship\value.
        flep, would you please share ‘your’ perspective on the Charlottesville mess? My reading is that the “Unite the right”, while having questionable leadership, was trying to get some P45 support by attempting to prevent the willful destruction of a symbol\monument to General R.E. Lee in a place called Lee Park! One does not become General by being a corrupt Congress-criter! Who created that monument? Why destroy such effort?
        Who labeled MAGA ‘White nationalism’‘ to imply White supremacy (KKK). Thank you!

      I’m sure he does for a few reasons:
      1) The majority of Americans including moderate democrats are tired of the race card, and are not unaware of the racism of La Raza, and BLM, etc.
      2) Most Americans instinctively know antifa are violent criminals, and not preferable to a dwindling pool of mostly-talk kkk types.
      3) They are tuning out the media pretty much totally on the anti-Trump nonsense seeing that after the smoke settles, there is no there, there.

      4) And of course your point: Their lives are getting better. Most Americans want illegal invasion stopped (and don’t like being called racist for not wanting to compete with illegals for jobs), and Trump is making the world a safer place (i.e. the North Korea stand down that he is not getting media credit for).

    I love how the Democrats answer the economy is getting worse, when they know damn well it’s getting better. They just can’t bring themselves to admit what a complete and utter failure the last President was on the economy (I know, that’s not the only area he failed in).

    This is the thinking that allows a guy like DeBlasio to be elected mayor of NYC.

    New York will probably re-elect him in November, then the next mayor will be a Republican so he/she can clean up the city…again. Then, when the city has been saved once more, they will vote in a leftist to destroy it.

Psychologically, I feel great relief and a sense of calm bc I know we are allowed to feel exceptional again. When the previous person in the Whitehouse went to other countries to apologize for us, I was incensed. I knew I had nothing to apologize for and who did this guy think he was… he wasn’t speaking for me and the entire 8 years was like having a dirge playing in the background. Lost all sense of pride in being an American. Sad! But now things have changed BIGLY!

    I think I have come up with something we all can do. Talk about grass roots. Roam your town, county, region. Find some factory or something that is employing people. We need a permanent spot on here to post local industry. I will start. Polar Beverages is based out of Massachesetts (I know that’s bad), but they have a local factory here in Fitzgerald, GA. They make things like Arizona Tea and similar. They do sell to Walmart, I know bad, but they are employing local people. Can there be a post location where we can place US industry when we find it?

    Another thing on a larger scale. Are there not infrastructure projects on the books/codified in law that the POTUS can let out for bid and bypass vietCongress? Perhaps he can focus on smaller construction companies. Maybe minority owned. Multinationals like Bechtel, Halliburton, etc, get outta here. Publicly call out Halliburton (Cheney) that would bleed off certain people. In short, for lack of a better word, we have to deNazify the multi national corporate world. Is there enough remnant good ole US based small industry to retool and get this thing moving? I know it’s out there. We just need to get it out in the open.

I will buy a little something at a local sears home store. It’s employing local people and owned locally. I try to eat at local mom and pop places…….yes, includes Mexican. Granted the coronary in a bun is easy and everywhere. Local grocer is Harvey’s. I shop there over walmart. So, bananas are 3 cents more. Or milk is maybe 40 cents more. If Walmart runs them out, walmart will jack the price. So, there are some things out there.

    As I read Sundance’s articles, I picture a bunch of globalist icons hopping on the Trump train, hoping they can steer it onto a side spur that goes nowhere. Nope, the Trump train stays on the right track and just keeps picking up speed.

    So, they all jump off the Trump train, hoping the train will miss them so much it will grind to a halt and await their blessing. Nope, the Trump train, lightened by the abandoned useless baggage drop kicks some more useless baggage over the side.

    It’s a bullet train now. Stand back. They will try to blow up a bridge next, but the train will have so much momentum, it will sail over the missing bridge, land perfectly on the rails on the other side and just keep on heading toward its destination.

    If the conductor needs our help, he’ll call us from our comfy 1st class accommodations and give us instructions on what he needs. Until then, sit back and enjoy the ride.

President Trump is not an R, he is AN AMERICAN with pioneer spirit and determination. President Trump is the leader who would cross the Delaware at night, lead the charge up San Juan Hill, be the first off the LST in Normandy, be on the lead tank into Germany etc. We the People, the majority are behind and with President Trump; he is our leader. President Trump is a winner with a 50 year track record of winning and billions of dollars to show for it. The ALT-LEFT are losers with a 100 year track record (1917 to Present) of losing.
