TRUMP ECONOMY: Arguably the best economy in U.S. history – The April jobs reports shows 263,000 more new jobs and a 3.6% unemployment rate. These numbers easily beat Wall Street expectations of 190,000 and a 3.8%.
Remember President “Gimme a Trillion Bucks and I’ll Save and Create Jobs” OBAMA? His PROGRESSIVE plan — increasing taxes and regulations – cost us so many jobs that, in his second term, Obama sneered at Trump’s campaign promise to bring them back.
By going the CONSERVATIVE route – cutting taxes and regulations – we now have the lowest unemployment in 50 years. A new CNN Poll conducted shows Trump approval on the economy at a new high of 56%.
Economic Good News by the Washington Times – “Tax cuts, deregulation and renegotiated trade is working. This is all the more remarkable given how many ‘experts’ predicted economic catastrophe on the morning after the 2016 election.”
EDITORIALS CONDEMN DEMOCRATS:
A Real Attorney General by the Wall Street Journal – “Washington pile-ons are never pretty, but this week’s political setup of Attorney General William Barr is disreputable even by Beltway standards.
“Democrats and the media are turning the AG into a villain for doing his duty and making the hard decisions that special counsel Robert Mueller abdicated . . . This trashing of Bill Barr shows how frustrated and angry Democrats continue to be that the special counsel came up empty in his Russia collusion probe.”
A Dumb Scandal by National Review – “What is perhaps most notable about this episode is that Robert Mueller — or, perhaps, as Barr hinted in his Wednesday testimony, people around him — were concerned about the media coverage and political discussion around his report. Particularly troubling was that it wasn’t damning enough of the president. This is not a prosecutorial concern, but a political one unworthy of people who were invested with incredible investigative power in the name of objectivity.
“Of course, no one holding forth about Barr on CNN and MSNBC, which are as committed to their hysteria and groupthink today as when the Russia story began, ever wonders about that. Not for the first time, or we expect, the last, Bill Barr’s critics are demonstrating their lack of judgment and seriousness, not his.”
Pathetic Posturing by the New York Post – “Democrats spent Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing trying to pin some serious wrongdoing on Attorney General William Barr, or at least on President Trump — and completely struck out.
Pelosi’s Preemptive Smear by the Wall Street Journal – “Doing her best to raise the level of civility in Washington, Nancy Pelosi called William Barr a liar on Thursday. The House Speaker even accused the Attorney General of committing a “crime” when he testified to Congress about a memo he issued outlining the main conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.” –
Democrats Lie and the Media Lets Them by the Louisville Courier-Journal – “Democrats lie all the time, aided by a media complex that laps it up and uncritically regurgitates it. Perhaps the most egregious policy canard floated by Democrats during Donald Trump’s presidency has to do with the Republican tax cut.
“According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, just 17% of Americans believed their taxes went down. What’s the truth? Let’s ask The New York Times, which — after printing lie after lie regarding the tax cut — finally reported in April: ‘If you’re an American taxpayer, you probably got a tax cut last year.’”
NELLIE OHR: Thanks to Judicial Watch! – Nellie Ohr has been criminally referred to the Justice Department by House Republicans after Judicial Watch obtains and released hundreds of her emails that contradict statements she made to Congress.
DANCING ON GRAVES: Students for Life on campus in San Antonio, set up a display memorializing the 911 aborted babies Planned Parenthood is responsible for snuffing. So obviously, Planned Parenthood’s pro-abortion minions showed up to brag about their abortions and dance on the figurative graves of their real dead babies. This video makes me so very sad. May God have mercy on their souls.
COLLUDING WITH CHINA: An ex-CIA officer pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiring with China to commit espionage after receiving a promise from his Chinese handlers that he would be financially set for life. Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 54, admitted he received regular assignments from his Chinese handlers in 2010 and 2011.
