Larry Kudlow Discusses April Jobs Report – Numbers Full of “Heartbreak and Hardship”…

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow appears on Fox Business to discuss today’s report on jobs from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.

The estimated  unemployment rate jumped to 14.7 percent. Kudlow brings up a good point: allow people to take a tax deduction for COVID-19 expenses.

    I have a feeling the next tax cuts for the citizens will be BIG. They have been talking about it for almost two years and the blue states need a bailout so that will be the bargaining chip.

    Herr Doktor Fauci says that’s all a mere inconvenience to save 2 million qazillion lives (or one BIG LIE as the case may be). Governor Pharaoh CowMoo says these people should just get necessary jobs rather than unimportant non government jobs.

    Who are we peasants to argue?

    • Fauci is the visible front. Yes, he needs to be removed.

      But the real perpetrators are Rothschild/Soros/Rockefeller/Gates and the rest of the NWO (they own the banks, media and Big Pharma).

      They are not really after Trump, they are after us. Their “vision” is a less populated planet under their control. Everyone forced to take their poisons (mixed with vaccines), no free opinion (Youtube/google/facebook/twitter censor wrong-think), social credit system, etc. They HATE American freedoms. They believe they are better (they are not) and deserve to rule.

      Trump is in the way to their globalist “dream”.

      The best thing we can do is to deliver landslide wins to President Trump AND a Republican House and Senate. And then demand that the real players in background are removed from power.

      P.S.: Before President Trump and the SpyGate and Fake News, too many never wanted to open their eyes. Fortunately more and more are waking up.

    I’m in PA, I don’t want any more bail outs.

    Wolf is acting like he can do what he wants and keep the State shut down and kill business. He thinks he’s getting a bail out.

    What he and his Dr. Levine have done is kill thousands and 70% are in nursing homes. The average age of death in PA was 79 at the beginning of the week. They did nothing to protect the elderly, but locked down the whole State instead.

    It’s not just the Wuhan Virus killing people. It’s medical needs that are being postponed, leading to death, it’s depression and suicide. This shut down is killing people without the virus.

    Tax breaks are a great idea. Until you remember you need to give away the farm to deal with Nanzi and the dems. No.

      And also it takes people *working* to generate taxable income before you can allow them to take a tax deduction.

    Yep, this is what happens when we allow democrats to control the narrative via democrat operatives posing as medical experts and the globalist controlled enemy of the people “media”

    This is what happens when we allow democrats to control individual State economies

    This is what happens when we allow massive third world immigration to swamp our country with needy, mostly illiterate government teat suckers

    Every day it becomes more obvious that this whole thing is nothing but a coordinated national effort by the democrats and their cohorts to keep as much of the country locked down in order to tank the economy in hopes that it will hurt Trump

    The pandemic is an absolute blatant lie, and more people realize it each day, yet our businesses sit idle while our economy nosedives further and further downward

    I simply can’t believe we’re still allowing this farce to continue

      Absolutely. If the people band together, they can’t do anything. Also, use media to document what is going on.

      The other day, I had to go to the bank; I have no love of banks. Anyway, a black woman was having a dispute with them. Apparently, they had closed her account and confiscated the money and she was having none of it. Before she had the confrontation, she brought a witness with her and she was streaming the confrontation to document she was doing everything right.

      Well, apparently the bank person was not going to giver her her money back and she was not going to take no for an answer. Although she was not being disruptive, the police were called when she refused to leave. I was stuck in line while all this was going on. Eventually, the police sent somebody out. The woman stated her position and had the video evidence. Unfortunately, I had to leave before I saw the outcome. But the bottom line is I was totally on the side of the wronged customer who approached the wrongdoing by documenting it for the world to see.

      We can all learn a lesson from this. An individual fighting back against a seemingly all powerful entity that is doing wrong.

      If businesses banded together and opened in mass, if their customers supported them, if the police showed up to arrest the owner, the customers can demand to be arrested as well. All the while, videoing the entire episode. That is BAD PR for the police and whoever is pushing this unconstitutional lock down. Just like the woman in TX, she stood up to the MAN and had consequences but the public outcry was so great, she is out and has a tidy sum. If I were her customer, I would have demanded that they arrest me too. And then, sue the crap out of them for false arrest.

      So, there are things we can do. Business people can get their customers to sign recall petitions, churches can get their members to sign, clubs and organizations, etc. Structure already exist to reach people without going door to door. As a matter of fact, I am surprised the Christians have not organized a recall campaign in these states that are violating their religious freedoms and pushing murdering new born babies. It’s like people don’t realize they have the power.

      Remember, the lefties pushed 3 recall elections on Scott Walker before they finally cheated him out of the governorship. Yes, they got enough signatures for force and election but couldn’t prevail. But the point is, they TRIED! If every Christian signed a recall petition, there would be more than enough registered voters for force a recall. Why are people not doing this?

      This economic destruction has to end NOW! If we don’t take action, the minority of leftists who stick together like the mob, will destroy us. JMHO

    If the elected officials gave a damn they would open the economy immediately with zero Social Distance insane regulations. There is no Freedom with Social Distance enforced by the government. Every single politician who has promoted Social Distance should renounce it as a huge mistake. There is no “reopening” when restaurants are told to eliminate 75% of their seats and ordered to install Plexiglass between patrons and workers. This is pure fascism. We have to decide – do we want freedom as we used to have it or do we want to be ordered around by incompetent government hacks? You make the choice once. Dictatorship is hard to undo.

        Actually, Social Distancing is the President’s strategy. He has pushed it as the only solution. He has attacked all the credible scientists who advocate Herd Immunity, the idea that has worked for the past 100 years and let’s people live freely and do their normal living while their bodies develop immunities. And it doesn’t cost $8 trillion and wipe out 50 million jobs. But Trump prefers Social Distancing because Fauci told him it is need now even though it was never needed before.

      czecharthur, I really don’t know if PDJT bought the hoax, I will state that he is beating the drum with that projection of the model assumptions. The two Doctors have become the public face of that number, What does that mean, not totally sure.

      However, this is one front, in a multi demesional, multi front war. A war that started when he and his wife came down the escalator. This has not stopped since that time, but escalated. Remember that the Deep State (Swamp) is embedded everywhere. PDJT is only one man, who has a small group of people who are loyal to him and love the country. Then, there are many who are DS, others just try not to make waves.

      We really don’t know how deadly the Wuhan Flu was going to be. Initially the flattening of the curve was so that the hospitals nation wide would not be overwhelmed. That goal has been achieved. Protect the vulnerable, especially the seniors in nursing homes (unless you live under DemonRat control)

    Think of how common, how mundane it must have been during World War II to receive news that a friend, a relative, even a close relative, had been killed on the battlefront, or badly wounded, or perhaps even worse, had gone missing, and those people got up and went to work, because that was how you did your part in the war effort. You endured the pain and persevered.

    Getting up and going to work was how you hit back at the Nazis. America won because the Americans ground the Nazis and the Japanese into the ground with their war production. Women, who had never had a job outside the home, got up and went to work in war production, in tough, physical jobs like welding and riveting, and those women took pride in their toughness.

    When I was a child, being a whiner or a complainer was the worst thing (almost) that you could be. The adults would certainly question your manhood (sexuality) if your complaint was less than life-threatening. Maybe we were wrong to go to work and school when ill, but we avoided the absurdity of today, when “asymptomatic” people, meaning perfectly fine young people who incidentally test positive for exposure to this ubiquitous, generally banal disease, are considered a great threat.

    We adults would test positive for exposure to a dozen strains of the flu, and polio, and a hundred other diseases. I wish some journalist (are there any left?) would do the overdue article about this ugly truth. I have a friend from Pakistan, where catching malaria is as commonplace as catching the flu. All us buttercups had better suck it up, and fast.

      • Here in blue land it feels like the masks are part of a cult mentality. Asheville NC has always been kind of cultish…now you can indicate your membership by wearing a mask.

        Any lawyers out there, I see a future in lawsuits based on the lung damage being caused by wearing these masks all day. Consider the chemicals, toxins and tiny pieces of lint that people are actually forcing into their lungs by wearing these things. I see the potential for suing companies that force not only their employees to wear these things all day but also their customers…Whole Foods being one of them. The founder of Whole Foods was a libertarian!!! Now Jeff Bozo owns it and it’s full fascism.

        Yes, you are exactly right. Rather than have an adult conversation about risk and life, the left controls the narrative and is using “safety” just like they’ve previously used “Russia”, “racism”, etc. to discredit anyone who disagrees with their narrative. Trump got elected by smashing through this, but he’s getting rolled on this one.

    I’ve lost faith in Trump during #coronavirus. The forgotten men and women who supported him are the ones who have been destroyed. It’s disastrous and I see no way out of this. The things he has said during this “crisis” have been sketchy. His trust in the globalist expert doctors is disturbing as well as concerning. We can make all the excuses we want for him, but the truth remains that he initially called this out as a hoax (not the virus, the media’s over blown stories on it), and within a week we were 15 days to slow the spread. There were promises of churches being opened on Easter,and perhaps even businesses and when word got around that we had some hope….then 30 more days were added to slow the spread. Look at us now.

    Lots of talk about opening businesses, we have to get back to work. Then we had the globalists put together their PHASES agenda. When Brian Kemp had the courage to open back up, Trump threw him under the bus. Trump also lavished praise on Newsom, Murphy, and Cuomo, some of the worst acting governors during this ordeal. None of it makes sense. Actions speak louder than words and his actions have devastated millions. He is the captain of this ship so he is as responsible as anyone for this disaster. I was a big supporter, even though he disappointed me on immigration and never doing anything about conservative voices being silenced on social media among other things. But this? I cannot believe this has happened with Trump as our president. If what is happening now had happened under Hillary, we would all be fighting mad but instead most are still saying he’s coming through for us even though we’re dying a little more each day. This isn’t winning anymore when millions of us are losing everything.

    Big news from PA. Several counties have informed Wolf that they also will be moving into the Yellow zone of pandemic lock down next week. They are Lebanon and Dauphin counties.

    Other counties have said they will not prosecute stores that open.

    I’m sure there will be more, but not enough.

    The counties near Philly are Democrat run, so who knows what will happen there. Wolf has screwed realtors in the State… and as a group they are pretty connected.
