President Trump Speech Celebrating Six Month Anniversary of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act…

Earlier today President Trump delivered remarks celebrating the six month anniversary of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.   Today is also the last business day of the second quarter.

.

Long time CTH readers might note in 2015 when we first saw candidate Trump’s economic policy initiatives, we began outlining the sequential economic possibilities if President Trump won. So far, all is going according to plan – STUNNINGLY According To Plan.  Seriously, go back and look –FEBRUARY 2016– two-and-a-half years ago.

The possibilities were obvious.  As a result we predicted repeatedly that Q2 of 2018 would be the beginning of the largest period of U.S. GDP and wage growth in the past 30 years.  Q2 2018 ends tomorrow and the results of Q2 will be announced in the next few weeks.  Everything is happening in a logical sequence as a result of Trump’s MAGAnomic plans.

We are now in the third MAGAnomic phase where all international trade agreements are being structured around ‘reciprocity’.  Eventually, if President Trump can continue the pressure, all global trade barriers and tariffs will be removed.

This is history.

We are living in most consequential economic period in modern history.

      And to think that 2 years ago the nation was blessed with waning months of an administration where that ended it’s 8-year term with a coup, FISAgate, the email cover-up and transgender bathrooms. Obama’s final accomplishments were so truly awe inspiring.

      Now we have a wonderfully authentic, engaged and talented President who is going to war for the American people without any fear of the cost and consequences to himself. We have a President who has taken us from selfish to self-less. America is coming back to life and we should care little for those who choose to sleep through the party.

        You are not far off on your assessments of President Trump. George Washington IS one of the greatest leaders thruout all history. When George and his patriots did his America stuff it was the first time it had ever been done.

        I believe that OVSGPDJT is going to do everything he said he’s going to do, plus he will do everything against the One World Order that Sundance and Q say on his behalf.

        The magnitude of this ranks Donald Trump in the top tier of the all-time greats of History.

        When I consider this my heart melts in love/ gratitude/ awe to our Triune God !

          Isn’t it wonderful that millions if us believed in Donald Trump’s words and voted for him as our 454th President, I for one did not know much about him and nothing about his ideas fior America until his first main speech, I remember thinking to myself, ok, I will listen and at least give him a chance, I listened and was hooked. Thank God we did so.

          Well….. he is almost 6.5 times wealthier than the second most wealthy President…George Washington. Washington in land holdings and Trump in Real Estate.

          Tell ya, Folks, more similarities between these two gentlemen than meets the eye.

          Remember President Washington’s admonition to, “Avoid Foreign entanglements.” And President Trump’s backing out of the Paris Accords, TPP, Iran Deal, NAFTA (it’s gone), insisting on clean one-on-one bilateral agreements and international relations that respect the customs/culture of the other Nation.

          I think Mr Washington and our other Founders are resting comfortably today unlike what has been going on for the past 100+ years (beginnings of the Progressive era).

      George Washington could have become king if he wanted, but he walked away from it.

      Ike Eisenhower reduced the national debt, and warned about the threat of a military industrial complex that if left unchecked, would start unnecessary wars, and slowly bankrupt the nation, but his warnings were ignored.

      Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War, a creation of the MIC, ending 40 years of the threat of world wide nuclear annihilation.

      It’s actually frightening how little people actually know in the day and age of where, right at this moment, you can literally research anything, find out anything.

          True on the contributions, in and of themselves. Not saying it’s fair but the other aspects that are similar to insurance had some value for all those working years (disability, survivor benefits and such) that one would need to deduct from those contributions made to figure how much would REALLY have been left for saving for your own retirement.

    You are absolutely right SD! To your credit you nailed it to the exact year and quarter. I had to laugh my a$$ of yesterday after reading MarketWatch’s article.

    In the paragraph before the final one, they are absolutely right that we will hit an annual real GDP of 3% this year. It will be the first time since 2004.

    However, these MORONS think we are heading backwards in 2019 and 2020. I guess they have no damn clue that our President is holding a Royal Flush and we will WIN like it is nobody’s business in 2019 and 2020 once he gets done with destroying the world on trade.

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/economy-might-top-5-gdp-in-the-spring-2018-06-27

    From the article linked above:

    A pattern of stop-and-go growth has been one of the hallmarks of the current nine-year-old expansion. One result is that the economy has failed to top 3% annual growth for 12 straight years, the longest streak in modern U.S. history.

    The U.S. might be on track to end that streak this year, but economists doubt the strong growth can last. Most predict GDP will slow in 2019 and 2020 as the effects of the recent tax cuts and an increase in government spending fade.

    Sorry MarketWatch! The Economic Train 🚂 is only going to take off next year and every year thereafter under President Donald J. Trump.

    Our President is truly sitting on a Royal Flush while the rest of the World and the RINOs, CoC, Globalist, MSM etc. are stuck with an Ace High. They can bluff, scream, cry, yell and curse all they want but in the end PDJT is going to win!

    How can you fight or argue with the concept of reciprocal trade. The hypocrisy is actually very amusing. Our President has been talking about reciprocal trade for over a year. Americans absolutely understand the concept and a vast majority agree with it. If you are going to have tremendous tariffs on our goods, we are going to place the same on yours. What is fair is fair. You reduce your tariffs to zero and we will reduce ours to zero. The ultimate choice is on each and every country.

    That is the beauty of it. We are doing to them what they are doing to us. I absolutely love it! The longer you wait, the less access you will have and it won’t matter if you don’t take our goods because we will be swimming in all the winning!

  9. I understand and appreciate MAGAnomics. My chief concern is the notion that the US will be better off with actual free trade (no tariffs, no non-tariff barriers to trade).

    It seems to me that the US consumer is the ‘pick of the litter’ when it comes to disposable income across the planet. While our ‘trading partners’ get access to the best consumer market in the world, US businesses will be trying to make sales to the ‘runts of the litter’.

    Not really an ideal situation.

    The best option for the US is to engage in serious protectionism until both employers and employees are in such good shape that everyone accepts that bilateral trade agreements that might entail outsourcing are acceptable.

    At that point, my recommendation would be for the US to set up bilateral trade with pro-US nations that would welcome US businesses and support US geopolitical initiatives.

    For example, the US government could work with Nigeria to develop their petroleum and mineral assets as well as offshored businesses to create employment opportunities.

    We need to think in terms political economy, not just economics.

      • Based upon the video Sundance posted (D’oh Canada), I don’t think their going to ‘cave’. NAFTA is going to be terminated, there will be much suffering in Canada and the current Canadian leadership is not going to return to office in the next elections in October of this year. At that point, I expect a bilateral trade agreement will be reached. No one really wants trade affairs between Canada and the US to be as bad as they are about to get, especially Canada.

    Donald Trump “The Party of Lincoln – The Forgotten America” Speech (w/ transcript)…
    Posted by sundance
    Last night candidate Donald Trump gave a speech in Washington State to an audience exceeding the capacity of the venue. 15,000+ filled the XFinity arena in Everett Washington:

    [Transcript] Thank you. I am so thrilled to be back in Washington.

    Together, we are going to work hard over the next 70 days and we are going to win this state – and we are going to win the White House.

    It’s going to be a victory for the people. A victory for the everyday citizen whose voice hasn’t been heard.

    It will be a win for the voters – not the pundits, not the journalists, not the lobbyists, not the global special interests funding my opponent’s campaign.

    This is going to be YOUR victory.

    We are going to create the New American Future our children deserve.

    In this new future, millions of workers on the sidelines will be returned to the workforce.

    Crumbling roads, bridges and airports will be replaced with the infrastructure our country needs and deserves.

    Families trapped in welfare will be provided with jobs and opportunity.

    Government will become lean, effective, responsible – and honest.

    Our border will be protected, and our children will be safe.

    We will rebuild our inner cities, and provide safety and peace to all of our citizens.

    American values and culture will be cherished and celebrated once again.

    But to achieve this future, we must break free from the bitter failures of the past – and reject the same insiders telling us the same old lies.

    I appreciate everything Trump has accomplished and hope for much more, but we cannot forget that even now he is being hunted by an apex predator.

    Mueller, Rosenstein et.al., will not rest until they have him impeached. If we do not hold the House in November, this will be a very short-lived celebration. The fight is going to be a long one and every one of us needs to spend at least a few minutes each day to support PDJT in any way we can. It might be a call to Congress, sending a contribution, volunteering at the local RNC, tweeting your support, displaying a bumper sticker or just wearing your MAGA hat. The battle for the house will be won at the grassroots level, and every inch of ground counts. And it goes without saying, …keep our president in your prayers.

      At this point the battle has shifted. I think originally the idea was to impeach President Trump, now it has devolved to covering their butts against legal retaliation.

      With Watergate, President Nixon was popular but he was not ADORED. No one was going to go to the wall for him. Not so with President Trump. Just search ‘Trump cult’ and you can see how, we, his supporters really worry the elite. We have made it VERY CLEAR it is HANDS OFF OUR president. People like Sundance and Dan Bongino and Rudy and Joe, have made it clear we KNOW Russian Collusion is crap made out of whole cloth and it is OBAMA and HILLARY and the EU and the UK who were the criminals.

      On top of that you now have liberals joining the #walkaway grass roots movement. Mad Max Waters call for a liberal fatwā against President Trump’s cabinets just blew-up in their faces. Worse battered conservatives have found some backbone and telling liberals where they can shove their ‘Social Justice’ and ‘Political Correctness’
