Maganomics – Pruitt at The Plate…

President Trump’s MAGAnomic Main Street policy initiatives surround a very basic set of principles.  To add wealth to the middle class you: A.) increase wages, and B.) lower the cost of living.

Increasing wages is the long-term economic outcome from America-First business and corporate manufacturing policies (Secretary Wilbur Ross), in combination with fiscal policies (Secretary Mnuchin).   Subsequently, within his economic agenda, President Trump visibly engages an extraordinary amount of effort on both Commerce and Treasury.

However, there’s a part of the plan for reestablishing middle-class wealth that also comes from lowering the cost of living (high consumables).  That’s where EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt intersects with Ross and Mnuchin as Pruitt works to lower energy costs.


Lowering energy costs has an exponential benefit to the overall economy.  Not only does it drive down the cost of domestic highly consumable products, but it also binds the building blocks of the manufacturing and production sector.  Lower energy costs offset higher wages on products manufactured for export and helps keep the U.S. competitive.

President Trump is uniquely qualified as a successful businessman (non-politician) to have developed actual life-skills on Main Street that help him see the bigger value in policy shifts.  Politicians usually speak in esoteric terms about economic “costs”; but President Trump has direct experience in how shifts in costs can directly contribute to the Main Street economy.

Manufacturing and industry sectors have three top-tier costs as they transfer to Main Street: 1) Raw materials (or finished goods depending on sector); 2) Labor costs; and 3) energy costs.   If you lower any of the three drivers you lower the cost of business operations.

President Trump is actually the only President in modern history who is working to lower both material costs and energy costs simultaneously.  In doing so, the short term benefit to the middle-class worker is a lower consumable good prices and subsequently a higher level of disposable income.

In essence by lowering material and energy costs the internal economic action actually gives a raise to the middle-class faster than waiting for full economic expansion/growth to drive wage rates higher.

See how that works?

In the longer term, as the economy expands, there will be a natural pressure on wage rates to rise – as competition for labor drives up labor value.  (*Note* immigration controls will also help this natural outcome considerably).  But that end goal takes longer to achieve.

This fundamental MAGAnomic approach is what uncoupled the FED Reserve policy from their historic ability to influence the economy.  As we have previously explained Trump is targeting all policy on Main Street.  Lowering material costs (deregulation etc.), and lowering energy costs (full utilization of all energy assets), drives down domestic prices.

That reality is why the FED is perplexed and incapable of impacting inflation.  Under all subsequent presidential policies the action was focused on economic control, and benefit, to Wall Street.  Under Trump policy the short-term, and long-term, focus is to benefit Main Street.

Trump’s Main Street focus is lowering prices on the highly consumable sector of products (gasoline, oil, foodstuffs etc.), and all of the downstream domestic derivatives of that sector therein (transportation, plastics, restaurants etc). The MAGAnomic approach detaches FED fiscal policy from the ability to influence inflation on those consumables.

This is why we shared in 2015 and 2016 that Trump’s outlined approach would necessarily uncouple the FED fiscal policy from Main Street.

In addition to leveraging economic power for national security, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Ross are working on long term economic benefits: Trade renegotiation, exports, and investment along with capital/credit availability.  Simultaneously EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is working on short-term economic benefits: energy development, deregulation, etc.

You’ll note the primary beneficiary for the Trump MAGAnomic outcome is Main Street.   Despite all opposition, and boy is there a great deal of opposition, President Trump is actually growing the middle class and lowering costs of living.

If only congress could remove the burden of ObamaCare it would be much much easier to see the bottom line benefits for the average U.S. worker.   {{{spit}}}

        Guatemala Gun Control went in in1964 and from 1964 to 1981 ~100,000 Mayan Indians were rounded up and killed.

        Uganda gun control went in in 1970. From 1971 to 1979 ~ 300,000Christians killed, the total was 2 to 3 million murdered.

        Cambodia passed gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977 1 to 2 million well educated people were murdered.

    We are absolutely WINNING! Secretary Pruitt thank you because what you, Ryan Zinke and Secretary Perry are doing is INCREDIBLE!

    What our President has done from day one was get this country ready to rock and roll when it comes to Energy. Secretary Zinke has been freeing up land and water for companies to lease and begin fracking. That process is ongoing and nonstop. Secretary Perry spearheaded the completion of the Dakota pipeline. The Keystone pipeline is close to beginning.

    Our country has been exporting more coal than one can imagine! A 61% increase from a year ago. Our EPA Secretary has rolled back all the Obamacare regulations. The Paris Accord is a thing of the past. Our President has the Three Seas Countries purchasing all their gas needs from us. Poland received their first shipment of LNG in June. Our VP visited three additional Eastern European countries to once again discuss with them the purchasing of gas from us. President Modi of India is on the cusp of purchasing LNG from us. South Korea signed a $15 billion dollar agreement for LNG.

    Our President talked about 7 additional pipelines he is going to give the ok too. Gas prices have remained at a very low cost per gallon in the summer. Normally gas prices skyrocket in the summer. Imagine what the price will be in the winter.

    Our Energy push has led us to a point that it will become sound economics to manufacture in the US again. We are on the cusp of that happening! When we turn that corner, MAGA will become so much easier. 3% to 4% GDP becomes possible without Healthcare or Tax Reform even occurring.

    Walmart is ready to pull the trigger on US Manufacturing! They would need 1.5 million workers.

    From the article linked above:

    Walmart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) on Wednesday unveiled a “policy roadmap” to create 1.5 million new jobs and “renew” the U.S. manufacturing sector. The 10-point plan (viewable below) aims to “recapture” an estimated $300 billion in imported consumer goods and spur growth in domestic manufacturing.

    “As we’ve worked over the last four years alongside our suppliers toward our goal to source an additional $250 billion in products that support American jobs, we’ve learned a great deal about the challenges our suppliers face in domestic manufacturing,” said Cindi Marsiglio, Vice President for U.S. Sourcing and Manufacturing. “The good news is we’ve also learned how to overcome the challenges and, because of our experience, Walmart is uniquely positioned to help facilitate broad engagement in accelerating the expansion of U.S. manufacturing.”

    The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported last month its closely-watched manufacturing index (PMI) came in at 57.9 in June, beating the 55.1 consensus forecast. It was the strongest reading in almost 3 years, since August 2014.

    Under the Trump Administration, Walmart believes there is an opportunity to cut into the $650 billion of consumer goods that are currently imported, including furniture, cookware, and sporting goods.

    “Every $100 billion of retailer spend that is on-shored has the potential to create over 500,000 direct manufacturing jobs, which could potentially result in an additional 1.5 million indirect jobs,” the “Policy Roadmap to Renew U.S. Manufacturing” states. “With the right policies and industry tactics, the U.S. can strengthen our manufacturing industry and drastically reduce long-term unemployment by both driving job creation and upskilling a workforce capable of excelling in newly created manufacturing positions.”

    Our President has and will never ever let us down!

          Hospitals to begin monitoring your credit card purchases to flag ‘unhealthy’ habits
          “[…]What you buy at the grocery store, where you live, and even your membership status at the local gym are all subject to a new data collection scheme by the American medical system. Reports indicate that hospitals and doctors’ offices all across the country are now collecting this and other personal information in order to target individuals deemed to have “unhealthy” lifestyle habits that put them at high risk of disease.

          Bloomberg reports that hospital systems in both North and South Carolina as well as Pennsylvania have already begun tracking people’s food-purchasing habits by spying on them through public records and credit card transactions[….]

          That is all part of Agenda 21.
          In 1992, As Chairman Strong told the UN conference at Kyoto…

          “It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class, involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work place air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.”/

          The same propaganda was repeated by WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy…

          “climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well — the way that technology, costs and growth are to be distributed and shared… Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life? “

          So under Obummer we got: The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC)
          They came up with the recommendation that America Should Adopt a ‘Plant-Based’ Diet. It recommends taxes on dessert, trained obesity “interventionists” at schools and worksites, and electronic monitoring of how long Americans sit in front of the television or computer. The new Food Safety Modernization Act and Obamacare will be used as the weapons to transform American dietary habits to a more sustainable pattern of eating.

            Just a thought on that proposed “diet”…..

            When approached intelligently, with a wide variety of options, the vegetarian diet is one of the most healthy diets out there. And of course, that would be the visual Big Brother would present to the public.

            When approached from the lowest common denominator, minimalist expense and choice perspective, the vegetarian diet becomes the most unhealthiest diet available to mankind.

            When I look at the diets of most of the world’s poorest societies – they are largely vegetarian…and the most laden with malnutrition at the same time. That is because what is proposed by that 1992 Kyoto speech (and subsequent action proposals) is a minimal choice, low cost universal diet for everyone,,,unless, of course, you have connections.

            Diet – like healthcare – is pitched by the Globalist mind as a means for controlling the masses, and not for the uplifting and ennobling of humanity to the betterment of mankind.

              Yes, and if you look at grain (GMO CORN) fed beef vs grass fed there is a world of difference in nutrition. Also a multi-use type of farm is the best for the soil.

              Put your cows, sheep and goats on pasture on steep or rocky hill sides or worn out fields. Rotate your fields with pasture, or at least fertilize with organic manures. Corn is very hard on soil and now they are taking the entire plant to make ethanol, literally ‘mining’ the soil. The big financiers buying up farms don’t care if they wear out the soil.

              My farm, 50 years ago, had over 2 feet of the best loam in North Carolina. Then it was rented out for growing cotton and tobbacco. They sold it because it would barely produce weeds even with fertilizer. When I bought it, it tested at 98% PURE CLAY with no organic matter at all. It has taken me 20 years to build back the soil since I am on a hill and we get such hard down pours from the thunderstorms.

                “Your government is a corporatocracy, a new authoritarian state in the process of consolidating your output into a more controllable, exploitable channel. The reason you are being misled by your government and told that all of this is good for you, is because there is no profit in managing a mass uprising. It is too disruptive….

                Transit villages (formerly known as cities) will be restricted to having only the population that can be supported by food grown within a 100 mile radius (called a ‘food shed’). Food sheds will dictate where you can live and when you can change your residence. Calculations, such as those done recently at Cornell University, will determine how much food can be grown within that area and then the Transit Village population will be limited to the number of people who can be fed by that land. It is reasonable to expect rationing based on this mode. If you want to move to that village you will have to apply and wait for an opening. ..
                Because the food generated is seldom enough to feed everyone with sufficient calories, there is malnutrition and general exhaustion. Any surplus goods generated by the group are sold for a small profit to more urban areas which do not have food sheds sufficiently large enough to provide for their inhabitants.….

    The Cost of Doing Business in America will be going down exponentially – hence more investment in America – leading to more jobs created – families thriving on goods Made in America – not the subpar products made by ‘robotic slaves’ in foreign factories – the return of the R&D Department – American invention, innovation, and ingenuity returning to the marketplace – how exciting is that?

    Healthcare will become QualityCare and will actually be affordable – competition will drive the health insurance companies to offer more bang for our buck – perhaps, health insurance will cover only catastrophic care – not routine health maintenance visits that can be paid out of pocket – all sorts of problems here will be turned into opportunities that will spur competition – thus, driving costs down.

    This article is so comprehensive and definitive because it covers how Maganomics works for the benefit of America and American workers/families – what is not to love about handing the reins over to Main Street – and bypassing Wall Street – perhaps, Wall Street will go back to its former business plan of investment in the future instead of impairment of the present – who needs the Federal Reserve when we have our own Treasury that will work for America instead of against America?

  16. President Trump is ALSO working to lower (2) Labor Costs while raising the level of disposable “net” income for Mainstreet Americans:

    • Massive Consumer-Cost/Penalty Reduction by neutering and eventually repealing ObamaCare

    * Reduced need for employers to compensate employees (and consequently raise prices) to cover to offset the above healthcare cost spikes

    • Impending Bonus: America should pay “Lowest Global Prices” for American industries that export, including Agriculture and Pharmaceuticals.

    RE: “Manufacturing and industry sectors have three top-tier costs as they transfer to Main Street: 1) Raw materials (or finished goods depending on sector); 2) Labor costs; and 3) energy costs. If you lower any of the three drivers you lower the cost of business operations.

    “President Trump is actually the only President in modern history who is working to lower both material costs and energy costs simultaneously. In doing so, the short term benefit to the middle-class worker is a lower consumable good prices and subsequently a higher level of disposable income.”

      This article is from 2014. FTA:

      “In 2012, more than half of the U.S. Chamber’s and ILR’s money came from 64 and 21 supporters respectively, who were able and willing to collectively donate about $121 million in one year which speaks volumes about the two groups’ makeups.”

      The ILR is the Chamber’s Affiliate, Institute for Legal Reform.

      If one is going to divest themselves from certain multi-national, foreign, or even domestic stocks, then the better part would be to not simply sell those stocks outright.

      Why not run a profit on them while they freefall?

      Use put options and shorts to profit from those stocks as they drop – increasing the pressure to drive those prices down even further.

      Start with those companies that 1) refuse to MAGA, and/or 2) those companies that exalt the poor policies of the Left, and do not want Trump-supporters’ money.

    I wonder if the caviar-class limousine elitists currently running Washington D.C. understand that with the impending rise of wages and the reduction of cost-of-living comes a set of expectations from the middle class that will henceforth remain so high that any attempt to manage the decline of standard of living, or the exfiltration of American wealth to Globalist entities, or any sort of experimentation with Socialism or the like will result in severe backlash from the voting public.

    Once the American populace has tasted and has begun to understand the sheer brute power behind the American economy and the near unbounded prosperity it brings, there’ll be no going back. Never, ever.

    At this point is seems more likely Obamacare will remove the GOPe from congress than the GOPe remove Obamacare.

    Great article SD ! I’m more of the Merle Haggard economic bent, “…back when…. ” I could fill a grocery cart for less than fifty bucks, put a twenty on the bar spend a couple of hours leave a tip and still pick up folding money, and get my oil/filters changed and a fill up for a twenty ! I agree President Trump and Sec. Pruitt are on the right track as energy development is the key element in economic growth and ours has been stifled for fifty years ! Now POTUS Trump has to whip the EPA dogs back into their kennels !

      I remember looking for glass soda bottles for the deposit money.

      We made triangles out of gum wrappers, usually Juicy Fruit because it was bright yellow, and played finger football. I taught that to my kids.

        We used to ride all over our small town on our bikes and find pop bottles to get deposit money so we could buy baseball cards. We were all Cincinnati Res fans and treated the American League cards like trash using them with our bike spokes to make noise while we rode.
        Unfortunately, I didn’t realize the future values of those New York Yankee cards of the Mick and Roger Maris!

    Pres. Trump is building our strength and resolve as we the People of a Republic must take back our power and remind Congress they are nothing more than employees and might useless ones at that. But off the lobbyist money and donor dollars and they will truly be desperate. A few leaving now because they want the benefits/perks for life that we did not vote for nor authorize for them. They just take care of themselves and ignore us. NO MORE!

      Please realize the gas made for consumption in commie-fornia is purposefully made for that market ONLY.
      They mandated a stupid additive that is expensive and not necessary.
      As soon as those commie-nests stop buying the few (3?) makers will stop adding and their price at the pump will actually come down driven by the market.

    George Noory (Coast To Coast AM) had an economist on tonight “warning” that we will be going into a deflationary period, that the Big Fat Bubble was going to burst. For the first time in forever, first thought was, “thank goodness.”

    Millennial friends (& fam) have have come to expect the rise in costs of food and energy as fact that cannot be changed. They have openly said they would be fine paying a wee bit more for large ticket items if the quality was better and the repair costs and frequency of repairs was lower, a wish they have also come to regard as a pipe dream. Boy will they ever be surprised now, will they not?

    The feds do not calculate the true cost of consumables and energy into COLA; is set by Public Law 106-554 and as amended by the BLS, iirc.×760867

    Gee wiz, whoever would have guessed Our POTUS actually knows what he is doing?

    Just as a side note, I can confirm that wage inflation is already here. My industry is running at a pace that I have not seen since before 9-11. Everyone is looking to add staff. The only thing slowing down hiring is the availability of people who want to work and can pass the mandatory drug screening (sad I know, but true). In the meantime we are doling out as much overtime pay as our employees can stand. They and their families are looking forward to the happiest Christmas season they have had in a long long time.

      I have a friend who is HR Director in a relatively small scale manufacturing operation and she says the same thing. They can’t keep up with demand because they can’t find qualified workers, despite bonuses, sign on incentives, etc. And when they do find qualified workers, as you said, the drug screening presents an insurmountable obstacle.

      Her concern is that once the old guys with skills and knowledge leave, there is no ‘bench’. The company even completely outfitted the local high school with a working mini-facility so the kids would have hands on experience with lots of different equipment. It goes largely unused – not enough kids are willing to do ‘dirty’ work.


      • Kids have been told since first grade that everyone must graduate from college, or they will be condemned to blue collar drudgery.
        I had the same thought about aging-out skilled workers. We a small storm-induced power outage a few months ago. Most of the workers appeared to be in their 50s. Scary, eh?


  35. Frankly Ben says:

    So right, so right, Sundance!!!

    It’s actually a double whammy of wealth enrichment.

    The best indicator across all aconomies to judge wealth is per capita energy consumption. It’s very simple- the more energy consumed per capita – the richer the citizens.

    Energy use is involved in every aspect of economic activity. Lowering those costs not only lowers the consumer cost of goods but generates higher consumption levels that drive higher production levels!

    Win, win win!

    Mr. President, you’ve gotta stop all this winning! It’s too much! :))

    Here, here to lower energy costs! My prayer is that it funnels down to electricity rates. When we bought our home 10 years ago the monthly electric bill ran $65/month on average. Our bill this month was $303. That is very high for a 1200 sq ft ranch home.


    • magagirl says:

      Wow! That’s a lot. Maybe you can call your electricity provider to do an assesment and see where are you wasting the energy. We have a 3,600 sq home and we pay $230. Of course it depends on where you live, but our electricity company help us find we had leaky windows and gave us other tips on how to save energy. At least we lowered our bill by $50, which is $600 a year 😁.


      • straightstreet says:

        We moved from a 3600 sq ft home to the one we’re in currently. It’s not just us paying high electric bills. They have run newspaper articles in our area with people paying $600+ per month for electricity! We are in coal country which O hurt catastrophically and intentionally. Also, several years ago we had smelter plants shut down and back then our electric co. said they were why our electric rates were artificially low but now we (the residential customers) were going to have to pay higher rates and pick up the slack. Our electricity rates doubled back then and have only gone up since. The electric co.notifies it’s customers of increased rates and we just had another increase with our October bill of 15% (on average for residential customers). As for the home being energy efficient: we’ve replaced all windows with double hung energy efficienct windows, new exterior doors, new insulation, new water heater, new wood stove to supplement our heat in the winter to keep those bills down. It’s ridiculous. It’s a rip off.

    I have our monthly gas bill on a budget plan. It is odd that my monthly budget went up for this coming year. I haven’t called the company yet to find out why and shouldn’t it be going in the opposite direction?

    My only thoughts are that companies and corporations all have us used to paying these kind of prices or living with these kind of salaries. And that they will keep prices and wages as they are as fair market while they add to their profit instead.

    Communism requires the destruction of the middle class. Everything Obama did and Hillary would have done had the destruction of the middle class as its goal, e.g. make things that people have to buy as expensive as possible (health care, energy, food, etc). Trump is turning back the clock on as many of these as possible because he knows the success of America is based on the middle class and middle class values. The one thing that will be harder to do is turn back the clock on all the racial division and identity politics Obama got rolling, but when people have jobs, they generally have less reason to complain.
