White House Adviser Kevin Hassett Discusses Growth Estimates and Red State/Blue State Divide…

White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett appears on Fox News to discuss how the U.S. has been able to turn around the economy faster than expected.  FED Chair Powell has a negative outlook on the economy (Powell supports Blue states), while President Trump has a positive outlook on the economy (Trump supports Red states).

Hassett admits the unusual internal dynamic around the Red States having strong economic growth but Blue States having negative results.  Clearly this distinction is by design. Democrats are so blinded to their ideology they are willing to put their citizens through intentional economic hardship just so they can try to hurt the president.

          MAGA policy is Red state friendly.

          1. Blue states are not going to get the big beautiful new manufacturing facilities.
          2. Blue states are the major trade hubs that import our trade deficits.
          3. Blue states have cemented their status as business unfriendly.
          4. Blue states have huge government pension problems and they will eventually have to tax to fill that void.

          It Is not even a fair fight!

          With continued democrat antics to choke the economy, the divide between red and blue will accelerate. This is why Team Trump needs to put out this economic index. It is an election winner.

        Let me give you a slightly different perspective: It’s Red counties verses Blue cities. We need our Red governors to “free” the counties from any WUFLUE constraints and let them start the process of sucking business away from the Blue cities.
        See in Texas 65% of all counties (and they are very RED) have ZERO Covid deaths! 15% have in the single digits — that’s 80%. The counties with the most deaths are centered on the Big Blue cities Dallas, Ft Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio, principally.

    Just to extend this further. Today, the Dow is on a roller coaster. It was ready to explode and make up for the over-reaction to Powell’s doom that took place yesterday. Started up 800 points, came down a bit, and then was back up at like +550.

    And then four of the “fake crisis” states dropped their virus numbers for today. North Carolina, Arizona, Florida and California. This reinforced the ‘second wave’ garbage being pushed, and soon the Dow was in negative territory. A joke.

    As I write this, it’s up +250 or so. But the media is going to play this “Covid watch” thing every day now (all they have with Floyd done), and it won’t be hard for Blue Govs and Blue Mayors to give them what they want by selectively testing (think California dropped a 1000-case count from a prison yesterday; prison cases are like 95% asymptomatic and mean almost nothing).

    This is the dynamic to watch, along with stalled openings (like Oregon gov pushing back next step of Portland opening last night). We all know the goal (don’t open states; have Trump economy stay stalled) and as Sundance has said over and over, Team Blue is going to work hard to achieve this. Manipulation of Covid data, along with media hyping, is the method.

    What’s actually great news is that this looks like it will be the first week since March 25-April 1 where there will be no day with 1000 fatalities in it. Objectively, things are improving greatly. But that doesn’t work for the Blue’s aims, so it’s buried in cherry-picked and cherry-generated nonsense.

      The Fed actually threw a hammer at the market. They know exactly how much stimulus is out there and what the effect of that stimulus will be. What the Fed did was throwing their weight into a presidential election. So much for political impartiality.

      The Fed probably figured they screwed up with the huge interest rate cut. Now they cannot raise the interest rate because that will say the economy is improving. But that interest rate cut will go right into the stock market showing recovery.

      Trump got a huge interest rate cut in an election year! This will ensure his reelection. So thanks Fed for all you do. Everyone who refi’s their home is going to have more jingle in their pocket.

      Actually, the Progresives are fascist. They are socialist -just like the communists- but they believe in crony capitalism, totalitarianism and heavily regulated private ownership. You see, Communism soviet style, with its fully planned economy, is too much work for the fascists. So they let the crony industrialist, macro-controlled by regulation, handle all the minor details.

      And Antifa, the Brown Shirt Wing for the Progressives, is anarchist. That system only works for small communal living, but by definition is breaks down when it is scaled up.

      All are related.

      At some point, I foresee an American version of the Night Of The Long Knives when the Progressives figure that Antifa has outlived its usefulness.

          The truly sad part is that there are those who believe that our country is still RACIST. Not so!
          We have a caste system and people gain advancement by getting a real education; getting and keeping a good job; learn manners and social skills throughout their years growing up and use those skills to gain acceptance in the real world. IF one is a failure at those necessary steps into adulthood, then they hit a brick wall in the work world or whatever it takes to be accepted. Our government does a pretty good job taking care of those who can’t take care of themselves.

          Remember when the “Government” decided to outlaw company funded pension plans….well that only helps the company to pay off senators and legislatures who get rich off company dividends. For those who failed Government class in school, the president is not the government, it is 535 elected officials whose self-interest trumps us all.

          Remember when we learned in school how honorable the FBI, CIA, and all government leaders from the local to the state and federal levels are suppose to be. Well, along came drugs of all sorts; pay offs from lobbyists; and selfish behavior at all three levels. Now we know that the old saying, “Big fish eat little fish” really is true. We need election reform, education reform and values education and we need it soon!. We seriously could use responsible parenting of all children too.

      Not possible. You provoked me to look up the Democrat platform (btw, thank you for not saying ‘Democratic’). The very first thing listed is “Raise incomes and restore economic security for the middle class”. Diving into the weeds, you find that their solution is to attack the very people who stoke the economic engine and pull the entire economy forward. It is a litany of disincentives toward a vibrant economy. It is a screed of class envy, restrictions on businesses and government dictated rules, guarantees.and giveaways. Of course, what is a Democrat platform without the pay gap myth.

      It goes on and on, but suffice it to say that they come from a top down approach rather than and organically driven bottom up one and because of that, there will never be a meeting of minds on how to achieve a thriving economy.

    Illinois became the first entity to borrow from the Fed’s new facility known as the “Municipal Liquidity Facility” for state and local governments. The Fed’s legal authority lies in section 13(3) of the Federal Reserve Act. This authorizes the Fed to directly lend to “individuals, partnerships and corporations” in “unusual and exigent circumstances.” Section 13(3) is titled “Discounts for individuals, partnerships, and corporations,” raising questions whether the Municipal Liquidity Facility is actually authorized under Section 13(3). This has been capped at $500 billion.
    To qualify they need a credit rating which is always up for sale to the highest bidder as we saw in 2007. Illinois is already insolvent and its debt is trading at junk bond status. However, as long as they pay the fee, one of the credit agencies can certify a rating which is arbitrary so they get the funds for a kick-back. Welcome to the wonderful world of corrupt credit ratings. This proves that Illinois cannot hope to raise money to borrow. Someone should just turn out the lights.

    And next week, Trump will give everybody a NEW rabbit to chase, and this cycle will REPEAT itself :
    1. I’m smarter than Trump
    2. I’m better informed than Trump
    3. I’d be doing a better job than Trump
    4. Everything is as it appears on the surface
    Do the 4 steps Brain has outlined above and you will ALWAYS be absolutely confused & wrong about Trump. President plays the exact same disinformation/fake leak games right back at his enemies.

    Hopefully the link below goes to Brian Coat’s article (a twitter thread) that I have selectively taken the above excerpts from…

      Sharpshorts,

      IMHO, Brian Cates, or StealthJeff around here, is a fake conservative and a disrupter. He led many down the path of trusting is some magic that Sessions was going to pull off to excuse his inaction. Time and truth has shown otherwise.

      He may post an interesting insight or two from time to time. But remember the devil wraps his lies in truth to make them palatable.

    “Hassett admits the unusual internal dynamic around the Red States having strong economic growth but Blue States having negative results.”

    HA, Ha, Ha!
    I wonder why that is . . .

    Can it be that difficult to report economic results as red state results and blue state results?

      No, but remember that those stats are very far “outside of the preferred narrative” for the MSM…. so don’t expect to see it anywhere in the mainstream news.

      I would think the President’s economic team would do that but PDJT may be holding off to see if those states will wake up and re-join the nation. At some point in the not-too-distant future, if they refuse, he will publicly shame them by publishing those numbers.

    “Democrats,…are willing to put their citisens thru intentional economic hardship, just sobthey can TRY to hurt the president.(‘s chances for relelection).

    Firstly, their citisens are SEEING this, and won’t reward them in the ballot box.

    Secondly, THEY CAN’T. The economic train PDJT set in place, before Whu-flu, was not derailed. It just pulled over onto a siding, and slowed to a crawl, while the Whu-flu train blew past.
    Now, it is going thru the switches, to get back onto the main track, and rapidly build up steam.

    As it does, there is nothing these Dem govenors and mayors can do, to impede its forward progress/momentum.

    They are like small mischevious children, placing a twig on the track, and thinking thats going to impede the train.

    Short of shutting down the National electric grid, there is nothing they can do.

      I wish that were so, but the thousands of businesses that will never reopen again will be a drag on any recovery. And the demonrats know this and are happy about it

        In the large looking at the economic impact, as economists do, not convinced.
        I believe PDJT’s forecasts for the economy, over these idiot forecasters, any day.
        Its MAGAnomics, baby. And you just can’t stop this train!

    I know, this is off topic but it needs to be said. The sites and people useful and revealing for the conservative point of views are being actively targeted, to an extend, I have never seen.

      That’s normal as the Dems hire college trolls to target conservatives.

      That was expected and predicted last year by the better pundits and observers to happen this year. It perfectly illustrates how utterly desperate the Left is to shield the public from the truth so that the Left’s lies are all that many voters ever get to see & hear.

      But there are still many internet-based sources of conservative truth and factual reporting that the Left cannot silence.

        Well, this sounds like your telling me that I am not one of better pundits or observers since I did not “expected and predicted this last year.

        Guess, my comments are not appreciated. And, since you represent Sundance.

          No, I am referring to the professional pundits on the airwaves, or nationally known full-time hosts of websites/blogs etc. Not comparing them to you since AFAIK neither you nor I nor most Treepers are “pundits” by profession.

          And by “better” pundits, I meant as compared to those who either tout the false democrat narratives or who are rarely ever correct regardless of ideology. These “better” ones include a few who are regularly on the airwaves of TV and radio.

          I think Sundance and other investigative journalists work to a higher standard of research and factual support rather than merely speaking opinions based on feelings and or impressions of the investigative work product of others.

          Apologies if my reply seemed aimed at you in particular – your comment simply prodded me to recall what I had previously heard or read.

    Dow closes up almost 500, nearly 2%.

      The DOW is ever more NOT an indicator of anything but gamblers. True investing is becoming ever rarer because of instant trading computer programs. “Day trader” is a misnomer: “Minute Trader” or “Just a Few Seconds Trader” is more accurate. The other problem is that the DOW is the “old economy” while the NASDAQ – heavy on High-Tech/New Economy companies (Apple, Amazon) – is known to go up when the DOW is down, or at least loses less as a percentage than the DOW.

        Yes, that is true. However, it remains and will remain a political/media talking point. We want President Trump to ride a rising stock market, which will nevertheless accompany the strong economic rebound. You are right, I don’t worry when the DOW is down (especially as NASDAQ was setting new records) but I will still cheer positive gains, as one more arrow in the President’s re-election campaign.

    To give you an idea of the pent up demand that exists among the population, I drove up to the York Barbell outlet store today (a wee bit of a drive from Bucks County to York County), as York County went into PA’s “green” phase today. Got there at 3:30 and they were closing the entrance into the parking lot. I drove up to where the guy was putting out the saw horses blocking off the lot and ask him what was going on and he said over 500 people showed up today and they just couldn’t handle anymore customers. 😲

    I’m, of course, pissed off beyond comprehension due to wasting a long drive out there for nothing (glad I took the scenic route thru Lancaster, a piece of heaven on earth), but it goes to show that people have money to spend if we’ll just open up the economy and let people be free!

    What he’s saying is that we are relying on the word of a bunch of people who have never owned or run a business and possibly never even ever worked for a real business (defined as anything other than a educational institution, the government or a media outlet) to tell the world what is going to happen on Main Street. They should sit back, watch, learn and then report. The “experts” are the ones busting their butts putting workers back to work not the ones sitting on their butts making schifft up all day.

      I should have added a comment about the entertainment industry too. I remember when VP Pence went to see Hamilton on Broadway and the cast tried to school him from the stage in the Constitution only to be called out when it was revealed that none of them had voted in the election and most weren’t even registered to vote. We won’t even talk about folks like Milano, Moore, Arnold, etc.
