    Pay close attention to what Kudlow says at the tail end of that interview, it’s important.

    Kudlow knew Donald Trump tangentially prior to joining the administration. Kudlow is only recently coming to realize that President Trump means exactly what he says when he makes statement of intent about the U.S. economy and the trade ramifications therein.

    Kudlow is a good soldier, a good advocate, but he too is having to change his own decades-long held outlook of what “free and fair trade” actually means.

      Exactly, the long range ramifications of putting America first is breath taking. President Trump has convinced so many people of his belief in the productive value of our citizens work, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship. Many of his close advisors may have come in skeptical, not anymore. They are all on Trump Train.

      There is one other thing that goes hand-in-hand with this, Sundance.

      Obama’s fiscal policy was simply god-awful. The over-regulation, higher taxes, etc. All of it.

      Trump is doing amazing things….new and important things (like trade) to be sure….but a big part of it is simply undoing what Obama did, like cutting regulations and taxes vs. piling them on.

      In sum, the US economy is getting a double-kick…..first from the fact that Trump is simply undoing the horrid things Obama and the democrats did….that alone sparked a monster 2017…and secondly from the NEW things that Trump himself is bringing to the table (most esp. re: trade, as you point out).

      So Trump isn’t just delivering a whammy to the economy….Trump is delivering a economic DOUBLE whammy to the economy!

      And it is historic, too. Just look at the black unemployment rates.

      Anyone who thinks there is going to be a “blue wave” in Nov. is waking up smoking crack and never putting their pipe down. And yes, a lot of know-it-alls like Kudlow are getting an education in what real business and investment looks like when the US economy isn’t under the thumb of globalist profiteers.

          I want to pile on another observation –
          It is not like the ideas Trump has are some esoteric formula; much of it is basic stuff that many of us believe and know the U.S. should have been doing, all along. For example, most anyone could foresee that NAFTA was dumb, as many could foresee that OprabamaCare would be dumb / would not achieve what it purported to achieve.

          It is pretty sad and pathetic that we are so thrilled with a president doing what nearly all presidents ought to have been doing across time. Simply fulfilling the job, rather than taking advantage of the position to sell us Americans out, or advance the agenda of just their party, or their cronies.

          The part that does deserve commendation is in how Trump is doing all of this – basically it is like a Bruce Lee movie, with a hundred bad guys attacking him form all directions, and him fighting one-handed.

          Sad that we are thrilled to have such a rarity: an America-oriented president.

            I read somewhere today that illegal immigrants cost us $18 Billion every year. That Obamacare costs us a whole bunch, too. Sending cash to Iran cost us a bunch. Mismanaging foreign wars since 2003, in the early ’90s, in Viet Nam and in Korea. Not mismanaging –well, at least we had clear victory– in WWII. Involvement in WWI. And before all of that, creation of the Federal Reserve, the U.S. National Bank which the Founders SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED. I am under the impression that the Fed has cost us ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE between a dollar today and a dollar in 1913.

            Think about JUST THAT for a minute.

            All of the above put together has to be AN IMMENSE SUM !!

            And I believe VSGPDJT has a much better idea of those costs than I do. AND … He has a plan for getting a lot of it back. Winning and Prosperity on a staggering scale.

            The whole world has been stealing from us since before 1900. And PDJT will very likely make America so rich that we will willingly give as much away. But we will all be happier the way The Donald will arrange it: Prosperity and Generosity … not Deceit and Theft.

        In 30 years, experts will rename it the GREAT DEPRESSION, not the Great Recession. What I, and others like me, lived through was unlike any other economic downturn in my adult lifetime (I’m 61). This is what the “bubble” economists, market pundits, etc., that didn’t lose jobs, houses, life savings, are missing. The recovery, with the aid of the double whammy you mention above, will be super-charged because the economy is coming off such a severely devitalized level.


    • Yes he was very clear on it!

      Again, Thank you, Sundance, for your ongoing commitment to this site, putting out stellar articles that has us walking away daily, understanding more what is going on. I feel more prepared to explain the real truth to the human amoebas out there.

      I know I speak for most Treepers here and thousands more that read but don’t comment.

      May the Lord Protect and Bless you in the days and weeks to come, Sundance and your support crew.

    • What struck me Sundance was Kudlow saying we should tell the Europeans “we are trying an experiment here and it’s working, maybe you should join us.”
      An experiment? In supply side economics?
      That experiment was tried 200 years ago and was the ONLY accepted economic theory. Then came along one of the most damaging economists in history, if not the most damaging, Keynes. His theory of demand side economics has cost countless dollars and misery.
      Demand side economics suits politicians because they get to spend other peoples money and pretend they’ve done something good for the people. NEFARIOUS.

      No, this is not an experiment, this is how an economy should be run. We knew this worked from the Reagen era, but narcissists like Paul Krugman (for a Nobel winner he is) shifted opinions and long held norms.
      Krugman should be openly disgraced and cast into the dustbin of history so that his kind never rise again.

      True. No one wanted to have to work 2 or 3 part-time jobs just to get by because of Obama care. Manufacturing jobs= good jobs and good paying jobs.

      Also..did anyone notice the comment about “job training” Kudlow mentioned? Haven’t heard anything about it.


    • An American says:

      stg58animalmother, you are exactly right. And to go along with your thought these new jobs will not be minimum wage burger flipping/service jobs like we’ve experienced for the last 8 years and even before after nafta came into play. They will be manufacturing jobs that pay good wages with potential to advance through the system based on one’s skill, ability and initiative just like we had back in the 50’s, 60’s and on. MAGA! Thank you President Donald J. Trump!

BTW one of the reasons President Trump offered Priebus the, unbeknownst to him, temporary job of COS, was to induce him to step down as head of the RNC. Priebus took the bait and resigned which allowed Trump to appoint Rona. People who point to WH staff turn overs as proof of Trumps inability to manage do NOT understand even a simple game of chess.

      That’s absolutely correct. “Full employment” never meant “no one is unemployed”.
      “Full employment is an economic situation in which all available labor resources are being used in the most efficient way possible. Full employment embodies the highest amount of skilled and unskilled labor that can be employed within an economy at any given time. Any remaining unemployment is considered to be frictional, structural or voluntary.”

        This is what I learned. But, that was back in the 1970s, when economics was economics, and not SJW.

        I learned that optimal is not when there is NO unemployment, but some modest percent. Why?

        In a great economy, people are opting to not work here and there because they can, and are not working because there are other opportunities out there for them and so they are resigning form one job to seek a more desirable job, some are moving from one place to another for various reasons such as to be closer to family knowing they can get yet another job, some are in school, and some are leaving jobs to start their own business.

        If everyone is working, you miss out on all of this change across time as the economy evolves and becomes more efficient – more optimally fostering willful economic exchanges between parties.

    This WINNING may only be a preview of what is to come.

    What our President did the other day by asking Wilburine to look at a possible 232 on cars, trucks and parts is going to take WINNING to the Regan days where annual real GDP came it at 7%+.

    I am optimistic as you know but this is based on more than optimism!

    I wonder what would have happened if Trump didn’t send that tweet this morning. Would the media have covered the jobs number as much? Trump didn’t even say anything that could be read definitively one way or the other; it’s just that the media loves to obsess over the meaning of everything he does that makes them think the tweet was wrong—they looked for meaning in his tweet and decided that Trump wanted to convey that meaning. In other words, they blame Trump for their own perceptions.

    Stephen Moore: The Mojo of Trumponomics

    The latest government numbers confirm that last month was a blockbuster for growth, federal revenues and deficit reduction.

    One of the key principles of Trumponomics is that faster economic growth can help solve a multitude of other social and economic problems, from poverty to inner-city decline to lowering the national debt.

    We’re not quite at a sustained elevated growth rate of 3 percent yet, but the latest economy snapshot tells us we are knocking on the door… Read more:

    So, in a WAY, Obummer ‘supporters’ ARE right. The improvement in the economy IS, at least in part, due to O.
    He TRASHED the economy for 8 yrs. and YES, a PART of the YUGE ‘Trump effect’ comes from a collective sigh of relief, that he’s GONE.
    We saw this clearly, as the economy began improving between election and inaugeration.
    THAT was the sigh of relief. So yes, former Pres. Obummer, THANK YOU for showing us how to do the economy WRONG.
    In fact, in every way, your legacy will be in textbooks: What NOT to do, as President.

      Pres Trump has been doing Triage on the economy.
      Ozero left it bleeding to death and under a rockpile of regulations.

      First, our President stopped the bleeding.
      Then he gradually removed tons of job-killing regulations.

      The economy was on life-support when O left…now it is breathing again and improving by the day.

      Next, if Pres Trump gets us out of NAFTA…the economy will get back on it’s feet and start getting it’s strength back!
      The tariffs will be like an infusion of fresh plasma, strengthening our economy even more.

    Truer words were never posted….LOL

    Obozo’s stimulation of the economy was forcing costly DOJ mandates on local LE entities. fostering diversionary Racial policy on the country, supporting the BGI, ignoring infrastructure issues, pandering to BLM, ignoring competent Foreign Policy, allowing ISIS & Terrorism to actually increase their foothold, caving to IRAN, and selling out future generations by straddling them with overwhelming debt…..If I missed anything feel free to add/ edit/ enhance.

    It’s the 1/2 full, 1/2 empty analogy…….Will his legacy be that he was the first Black president elected by a populist that sought “Fundamental Change”…. or was he the last Black president for quite some time to come because of his blatant failures on so many different levels & fronts….

    IMHO the latter appears to be the leading contender to a wary populace after 8 long years of, well, really NOTHING positive. . Not that a capable & competent Black could not successfully lead this nation…Just that he was neither capable or competent…It’s a shame because we as a country were making strides and elected him on hopes for a better future.

    Like someone once said….”We Was Robbed…”

    Our only consolation is that his “hand picked” successor was even more incompetent & couldn’t even win a “rigged” election……That’s KARMA in action.

    God Bless Pres. Trump because if not for him we were doomed for decades to come. At least now, with him at the helm, we have a fighting chance for MAGA.

We need fair trade to draw down our unbelievable near the brink level of debt.
