My daughter and future son in law are in DC on vacation. She called me disgusted from the American History museum. Apparently some 8th graders were there on a field trip wearing MAGA hats and wanting their pic taken by Hitler's. They were calling him a hero,like Trump.

There’s no question that Trump’s become increasingly unpopular or that he’s going to be called to task for his many crimes. It’s only a matter of time - and of timing for maximum effect!

It matters that Barr is going out on a witch hunt of his own at Trump's insistence. It matters that Barr will be able to control declassification of intelligence. It matters that Putin is still actively involved in interfering with our elections and that Trump still denies it.

Donald Trump thinks football players are disrespecting the military by taking a knee at a game, but he can't stand to look at a U.S. Navy ship because it has the name of an American war hero on it.

The economic expansion just hit a record for the longest ever
BY IRINA IVANOVA

UPDATED ON: JULY 1, 2019 / 6:18 PM / MONEYWATCH


One unusual aspect about what's now America's longest period of expansion -- 121 months in July -- is how slow its pace has been.
That's at least partly the result of how deep the Great Recession was and how much wealth and employment it destroyed.
Another notable point is how uneven this expansion has been, in terms of who has benefited most and what areas of America those benefits have gone to.
As July starts, the current U.S. economic expansion is crossing an invisible line: At 121 months, it's officially the longest period of growth in U.S. history. From here on out, we're in uncharted territory.


One of the things that has made the current expansion the longest on record is its slow, gradual nature. Average annual GDP growth -- a broad measure of a country's entire economic output -- has been lower in this expansion than in the previous three.

One reason for that is the sheer number of people who lost work in the Great Recession meant employment took far longer to come down than it took in a typical recovery. And the jobs that this expansion created aren't the same as the ones the recession destroyed. Today, nearly 5 million more people are working in the lower-paid retail and hospitality sectors than 10 years ago, while manufacturing and construction sectors added just over 1 million jobs apiece.

This recovery has also been uneven. The recession was indiscriminate in taking out wealth across the country, but that wealth hasn't grown back at the same rate. Instead, a few households at the top have seen spectacular growth in their assets.

"The wealth gains over this expansion have not been distributed evenly. Indeed, looking at median family net worth over the last 30 years, we see that the typical American family is poorer than pre-crisis," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a note recently. "Real median household net worth fell sharply in the recession, to early-1990s levels, and has not recovered since."

A narrowing of growth
The geography of growth mirrors that unevenness. For a handful of superstar cities -- New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Miami -- growth has been spectacular, while small towns and rural areas are just about where they were prior to the crash.

"You're seeing a narrowing of economic growth," John Lettieri, CEO of the Economic Innovation Group, told CBS MoneyWatch previously. "Where the jobs and businesses have come back doesn't map very closely with where they were lost."

EIG, a think tank focused on entrepreneurship, has been sounding the alarm about what it considers a troubling geographic disparity. Between 2007 and 2016, its research shows, 90% of the 3.7 million jobs created in America went to the richest 20% of ZIP codes.

Between 2007 and 2016, the entire country added about 53,000 net new businesses, according to Census Bureau data. But just five counties together added even more during that time period -- about 55,000 businesses. The winners: New York's Brooklyn and Queens; Los Angeles; Florida's Miami-Dade; and Harris County, Texas, which contains Houston.

"Something kills an expansion"
As a recovery extends itself, it's normal for economic growth to gradually slow as more and more people get work and jobs get harder to fill. Last month's hiring figures -- while unusually dismal -- offer a preview of this trend. Already this year, businesses have hired an average of 164,000 people a month, down sharply from last year's 223,000.


"Expansions don't grow old and die. Something kills an expansion," Robert Frick, chief economist at the Navy Federal Credit Union, told CBS MoneyWatch recently.

That killer could very well be the U.S. trade wars. While President Donald Trump reached an agreement to restart talks with his top trade rival, China, at this week's G20 summit, Mexico and now India remain potential sore spots. The Federal Reserve has essentially promised to drop interest rates if the tariffs imposed so far have a noticeable impact on growth. But with rates already historically low, that many not be enough. The Fed's current target rate, between 2.25% and 2.5%, is the lowest it has been at the peak of an economic expansion.

That might explain why more than two-thirds of corporate finance leaders see an economic downturn before the end of next year. Said John Graham, finance professor at Duke University: "For the first time in a decade, no region of the world appears to be on solid enough economic footing to be the engine that pulls the global economy upward."

That's right. And most of it was under Obama's presidency. Now it is winding down. And all of Trumps tariffs are bringing it on faster. And he has no clue what he is doing.

Trump understands economics in general and tariffs in particular less well than a ninth grade economics student.

from your link:

Trump may need every dollar in what could prove a competitive reelection bid. Early polls have found Trump either trailing or locked in close contests with Democratic contenders in swing states such as Pennsylvania, Florida and North Carolina. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have generally fared the best against Trump in early surveys.

The president decried polling after leaked internal surveys from earlier this year found him trailing Biden in 11 important states. Trump claimed last month that only “Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew” of Democratic candidates.

About That Socialism in the Nordic Countries...
Democrats wrongly point to these nations as examples of what they mean for socialism.


Robin Smith · Jul. 2, 2019


Americans may have decided last week to watch two nights of back-to-back debates featuring the lineup of candidates pursuing the Democrat presidential nomination. In the pageant to see who could lunge furthest to the hard Left, a term was used, as was an idea of a fantasy of conjured-up economic model that would provide free education, free health care (including for untold numbers of illegal aliens), a universal wage, and the elimination of school debt — all by increasing taxes on the rich. The term used to describe this nonexistent utopia was “democratic socialism.”

Said contrivance is believed to have existed at one time in the Nordic nations of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, and Finland. The fad these days among Democrats is to appeal to voters through the enticements of “free” everything that are paid for by other people’s money. The theory is that those who have obtained wealth have done so through corruption, greed, crime, and hate by oppressing those who self-identify as being treated unfairly and inequitably. Hence, redistribution is certainly in order, not as a safety net, but as a means to achieve “social justice.” It’s actually a government-controlled economy that taxes the makers excessively to give to the takers.

But while pointing to these nations, Democrats have taken information, rearranged it to fit their narrative, and are now misrepresenting it.

Exactly what type of governance has been present in these northern European nations? The prime minister of Denmark, Lars Lokke Rasmussen, declared in 2015, “Some in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism. Therefore, I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy.”

There was a time following great economic success in the early 1970s that this region and specifically the Swedes doubled their government spending and began heavily regulating labor markets, but that spurred an explosion of debt in the 1980s that then led to crisis in the 1990s. Sweden’s Central Bank imposed 500% interest to protect the nation’s currency as its new welfare state brought the nation to the brink of ruin.

In The Federalist, Swedish economist and Cato Institute fellow Johan Norberg was cited: “Free markets and small government made Sweden rich. The experiment with socialism crashed us.” Sweden fell from the fourth wealthiest nation to the 14th as it swept aside extremely low taxes and public spending just barely above 10% of GDP to taxes currently at 27% of GDP. Those taxes rely heavily on consumption, payroll, and social security taxes, all of which hit the middle class even more severely than the dastardly rich.

In other words, socialism failed in these nations. They now have excessive taxation on income plus a value-added tax (think sales tax that is applied to any transaction throughout the supply line) to pay for the “free” health care. Just wait for the copays and deductibles that are never mentioned as part of the Medicare-for-All plans of Bernie Sanders and all the other Democrats who pledge to put everyone, including illegal immigrants, on taxpayer-funded health insurance.

Put simply, Democrats are twisting the facts and peddling fantasy to win votes through pandering because everything else they’ve tried has failed. Democrats are promoting a perversion of fact.

Once upon a time, there really was a fourth-century Christian saint known for miracles and secret gift-giving — Saint Nicholas of Myra, a Greek maritime city. The same Nordic region of the Democrats’ mythical success of socialism honors Sinterklaas, the snow-white-bearded patron saint of children who rides a white horse wearing a long red cape that serves as the primary source of America’s Santa Claus. As we know, Santa Claus has turned into anything but a miracle worker tied to the Christian faith and is now the icon associated with a Holy Day turned retail orgy. Democrats wish to play Santa Claus, handing out gifts to all the awaiting “children” of America.

Just like democratic socialism, the promises of “free” leave others paying the bills for temporary satisfaction based on myth. Those who believe in the myth of democratic socialism are seeing their failed experiment play out in California, which is already beginning to look more like Venezuela or another Third World banana republic.

Kids believe in Santa Claus. Democrats believe in successful socialism. At least kids grow out of it.

Happiness report: Norway is the happiest place on Earth


20 March 2017

Norway is the happiest place on Earth, according to a United Nations agency report - toppling neighbour Denmark from the number one position.

The World Happiness Report measures "subjective well-being" - how happy the people are, and why.

Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland and Finland round out the top five, while the Central African Republic came last.

This year's report also contains a chapter titled "restoring American happiness", which examines why happiness levels in the United States are falling, despite constantly-increasing economic improvement.

"The United States can and should raise happiness by addressing America's multi-faceted social crisis - rising inequality, corruption, isolation, and distrust - rather than focusing exclusively or even mainly on economic growth," the authors said.

"America's crisis is, in short, a social crisis, not an economic crisis."

Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, which published the report, said President Donald Trump's policies were likely to make things worse.

"They are all aimed at increasing inequality - tax cuts at the top, throwing people off the healthcare rolls, cutting Meals on Wheels in order to raise military spending. I think everything that has been proposed goes in the wrong direction," he told Reuters.

Much like the US economy but they don't have Trump trying to become a dictator.
