Democrats' vision of the economic situation in the country was quite dark last night, with Warren calling the economy "broken" on several occasions. Interestingly, this data didn't make it into the (highly out of touch) talking points:

This is very good news. Wage growth has accelerated. So much for the claim that the booming economy has benefited only the 1%. https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-99-get-a-bigger-raise-11564529382

The revisions show that employee compensation rose 4.5% in 2017 and 5% in 2018—some $4.4 billion and $87.1 billion more than previously reported. The trend has continued into 2019, with compensation increasing $378 billion or 3.4% in the first six months alone. Wages and salaries were revised upward to 5.3% from 3.6% in May year over year. And in June wages and salaries grew at an annual rate of 5.5%, which is a rocking 4.1% after adjusting for inflation...In sum, Americans are earning more and relying less on government. Personal savings estimates were also increased by $217 billion for the last two years and are now $1.3 trillion, which means Americans are socking away more of their earnings...The economy barely skirted recession in the final Obama years, and economic policy changed in 2017. Deregulation has unleashed repressed animal spirits, especially in energy. Tax reform has also spurred business investment in new facilities and equipment, which over time should translate into higher worker productivity and wages...While Democrats and even some conservatives complain that workers haven’t benefited from tax reform, the evidence suggests otherwise...This sure sounds like an economy that is benefiting the 99%.

Political discourse nowadays is enough to depress anyone, and the media don’t help by ignoring good economic news. But buck up, Americans: Worker wages are growing much faster than previously reported.

Trump's Economic Policies Raise Wages for 99%
Americans' wages are increasing across the board, a new economic report finds.


Thomas Gallatin · Jul. 31, 2019


The Bureau of Economic Analysis released annual revisions to its personal-income report on Tuesday, and the data should encourage everyone: Americans’ wages have been increasing at a healthy rate since President Donald Trump took office. The Wall Street Journal reports, “The revisions show that employee compensation rose 4.5% in 2017 and 5% in 2018 — some $4.4 billion and $87.1 billion more than previously reported. The trend has continued into 2019, with compensation increasing $378 billion or 3.4% in the first six months alone. Wages and salaries were revised upward to 5.3% from 3.6% in May year over year. And in June wages and salaries grew at an annual rate of 5.5%, which is a rocking 4.1% after adjusting for inflation.”

Counter to the Leftmedia’s erroneous narrative that credits Barack Obama and not Trump for America’s current economic growth, the Journal notes, “Employee compensation has increased by $150 billion more in the first six months of 2019 than all of 2016. Compensation increased 42% more during the first two years of the Trump Presidency than in 2015 and 2016. This refutes the claim by liberals that the economy has merely continued on the same trajectory since 2017 as it was before.”

The fact of the matter is that today “Americans are earning more and relying less on government.” So, how does this reality comport with the leading Democrat presidential candidates’ socialist message of ever more government-provided “free” stuff — stuff that can only be “given” by taking more of the wages of hard-working Americans? For all the overwhelmingly negative press Trump receives, at the very least his policies are proving effective in putting/leaving more money in the pockets of hard-working Americans, giving them more freedom to spend and invest as they see fit. Once again, it’s capitalism, not socialism, that is lifting everyone’s boats.

Federal Reserve issues FOMC statement
For release at 2:00 p.m. EDT

Share
Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in June indicates that the labor market remains strong and that economic activity has been rising at a moderate rate. Job gains have been solid, on average, in recent months, and the unemployment rate has remained low. Although growth of household spending has picked up from earlier in the year, growth of business fixed investment has been soft. On a 12-month basis, overall inflation and inflation for items other than food and energy are running below 2 percent. Market-based measures of inflation compensation remain low; survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed.

Consistent with its statutory mandate, the Committee seeks to foster maximum employment and price stability. In light of the implications of global developments for the economic outlook as well as muted inflation pressures, the Committee decided to lower the target range for the federal funds rate to 2 to 2-1/4 percent. This action supports the Committee's view that sustained expansion of economic activity, strong labor market conditions, and inflation near the Committee's symmetric 2 percent objective are the most likely outcomes, but uncertainties about this outlook remain. As the Committee contemplates the future path of the target range for the federal funds rate, it will continue to monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlook and will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion, with a strong labor market and inflation near its symmetric 2 percent objective.

In determining the timing and size of future adjustments to the target range for the federal funds rate, the Committee will assess realized and expected economic conditions relative to its maximum employment objective and its symmetric 2 percent inflation objective. This assessment will take into account a wide range of information, including measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and inflation expectations, and readings on financial and international developments.

The Committee will conclude the reduction of its aggregate securities holdings in the System Open Market Account in August, two months earlier than previously indicated.

Voting for the monetary policy action were Jerome H. Powell, Chair; John C. Williams, Vice Chair; Michelle W. Bowman; Lael Brainard; James Bullard; Richard H. Clarida; Charles L. Evans; and Randal K. Quarles. Voting against the action were Esther L. George and Eric S. Rosengren, who preferred at this meeting to maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 percent.

Implementation Note issued July 31, 2019

I've ask you this question many time over which involves your personal lifestyle. Also we must contemplate the actions of the worse president in the last 100 years, a person that is so miserable that he must put others in the same predicament.....rich, yet unhappy. 3 wives, unethical family, no friends, always under investigation due to unsavory practices. Can't sleep at night, no relationship with his foreign born wife, No friend...did I say that before......bottom line son, success isn't based on the numbers in your bank account but the number of friends....so please tout our economy but take a look at the fallout in regard to the countries which now hate us, the amount misery exacted on human beings domestically, the racism which has quadruple since Trump's election. Hate crime is at a 10 year high...Something tells me that you live alone and work....thus your limited outlook, come here to tout an economy which fails to give you any sense of accomplishment or true success.

July National Poll: Biden Extends Support While Bernie Bounces Back

In Emerson’s latest poll, former Vice President Joe Biden continues to lead the Democratic Primary by a significant margin. Biden’s numbers increased slightly to 33% from the last Emerson national poll in which Biden received 30% of the vote. Sen. Bernie Sanders had the largest bounce of any candidate, increasing by 5 points to 20%, Sen. Elizabeth Warren dropped a point to 14% and Sen. Kamala Harris dropped 4 points to 11%. The only other candidates above 3% are Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 6% and former Congressman Beto O’Rourke at 4%. Data was collected July 27-29 of 520 Democratic primary voters, +/- 4.2% margin of error.




Sanders re-established his lead among 18-29 year olds receiving 36% support among that age group, in the earlier July poll Sanders was at 24% of the vote among 18-29 year olds. Warren follows him now with 17% of the youth vote, followed by Biden with 12% and Buttigieg with 10%. Among 30-49 year olds, Biden leads with 24%, followed by Sanders with 21%, Warren with 14% and Harris with 10%. Biden has a greater lead with those age 50-64 with 46% support, followed by Sanders with 15%, Warren with 14% and Harris with 13%. And then among those over the age of 65, Biden also leads with 51% support, followed by Harris with 11%, Warren with 10% and Sanders with 8%.



Among Democratic Primary voters that describe themselves as “Very Liberal”, Sanders leads with 30%, followed by Warren at 25%, Biden at 16% and Harris at 13%. Among those that describe themselves as “Somewhat Liberal”, Biden leads with 31%, followed by Sanders at 22%, Warren at 15% and Harris at 9%. And among voters who describe themselves as “Moderate” or “Conservative”, Biden leads with 45% support, followed by Sanders at 12%, Harris at 11% and Warren at 7%.



Of respondents who voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic Primary, 47% support Biden, 15% support Warren, 14% support Harris and 10% support Sanders. Of those voted for Sanders in the 2016 Primary, 36% still support him, 19% support Biden, and 11% support Warren and Harris.



President Trump’s job approval improved slightly from early this month and is now at 45% approval and 46% disapproval. His support within the Republican party continues to be strong as Trump dominates a potential primary against former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld 91% to 8%. The Republican primary poll was n=467 with a +/-4.5%.



In potential head to head matchups, President Trump runs slightly closer to some of his potential Democratic opponents than in previous Emerson polls. Biden and Sanders each lead Trump by 2 points at 51% to 49%, Warren is tied at 50% with Trump, and Harris and Buttigieg both trail by 4 points, 48% to 52%. Spencer Kimball, Director of the Emerson Poll, notes how “this is the second poll where Biden has seen his general election support dip since the first debate. This may have to do with the more liberal positions he took, but in the last 3 weeks his head to head matchups with Trump have tightened 8 points.”




When asked to choose the most important issue in determining their vote for president, immigration tops the list for voters at 24%, followed closely by the economy at 22%. The issue of impeachment jumped from under 5% in the last two Emerson polls to the third most important issue, at 12%.



There is a party divide on this question, as among Republican primary voters, 40% chose immigration as the most important issue, followed by the economy at 31%, and gun control and social issues at 8%. Among Democratic primary voters, impeachment is the most important issue at 19%, followed by healthcare at 16%, and social issues and the economy at 13%.



Among those who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, 41% say their most determining issue for their vote in 2020 is immigration, followed by the economy at 28%, whereas the plurality of Clinton voters say impeachment is the most important issue at 21%, followed by health care at 15%. Kimball notes “the Democrats are taking a gamble with an increased emphasis on impeachment proceedings following the Mueller hearings, considering how effective their Healthcare argument was in 2018. It would seem to make sense to stick with that issue, but now the party seems torn between the two.”




Voters appear less excited for the second set of Democratic debates coming up this week, with 57% of respondents planning on watching some or part of the debates compared to the 72% who planned to watch the June debates.

&#65279;

The Democratic House leadership is struggling with favorability among voters; Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a 28% favorable opinion and a 46% unfavorable opinion. The House “squad,” consisting of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Illan Omar and Ayanna Pressley share this image problem. Ocasio-Cortez is at 30% favorable and 47% unfavorable, Tlaib is at 26% favorable and 42% unfavorable, Omar is at 25% favorable and 46% unfavorable, and Pressley is at 24% favorable and 35% unfavorable.



Among Democrats, Pelosi is at 51% favorable/18% unfavorable, Ocasio-Cortez is at 54% favorable/17% unfavorable, Omar is at 46% favorable/20% unfavorable, Tlaib is at 48% favorable/17% unfavorable and Pressley is at 44% favorable/14% unfavorable.

I won't take the time to dissect your data but one outstanding pertinent data you've failed to mention, any of the twenty candidates will and can beat Trump irrespective of the party's nomination. A lesson learned in 2016, Hillary was ion ahead of Trump on favor-ability that another 5 million voters stayed home instead of voting assuming that it would be a landslide...yet Hillary still beat him by 3 million vote. The premise this upcoming election.....we will not make the same assumption and will go to the polls in massive numbers to insure that the fool can't even achieve an electoral victory. Remember son, since the year 2000, the GOP can't win a Presidential election by conventional means but must rely on scare tactics(discouraging minority voters), voting fraud and racist redistricting tactics. Why do you think the fool is scared....even the weakest Democratic candidate will win.....

Strong Economy Continues as Dems Warn of Collapse
Labor force numbers hit record high, tariffs may rise, and the Fed drops interest rates.


Thomas Gallatin · Aug. 2, 2019


The jobs numbers for July indicate that the country is continuing to enjoy a robust economy. The number of jobs added hit Wall Street’s expectation at 164,000. That’s not a massive number, though with the labor force hitting a record 163.4 million, many economists see it as an indicator of the economy nearing full employment. Another good indicator for the current healthy economy is wage growth, which has now risen 3.2% over last year. That number slightly beats expectations of 3.1%. Finally, the U6 rate (real unemployment) has dropped to 7%, the lowest since December 2000.

Meanwhile, the trade war with China (that Trump didn’t start) shows little sign of ending anytime soon, as Beijing’s puppet North Korea this week launched more test missiles. President Donald Trump responded by slapping a new 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods. The Federal Reserve then cut interest rates by a quarter of a percent, a measure aimed at ensuring the U.S. economy maintains its current strength through this trade war. Clearly, China aims to wait out Trump, in the hopes that he will lose in 2020. Trump is tightening the screws in the meantime.

Speaking of the election, Joe Biden seems to have been asleep these last two years, as he declared on Thursday that “the economy as well as the soul of this country is collapsing because of this presidency.” But Biden is not the only Democrat presidential candidate out deriding the economy. Sens. Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren have all claimed that Trump and Republicans are leading the country to certain economic disaster.

However, the “solution” Democrats are offering — a Big Government socialist takeover of the economy — is the opposite of what most Americans want or need. A recent Rasmussen/Harris poll found that the “Majority of Americans Believe Big Government Is the Only Factor Holding Economy Back,” reports The Washington Free Beacon. In fact, even Big Labor is warning Democrats not to assume it has union workers’ support, which is indicative that workers see Trump’s economy as pretty good and Democrats push to import an endless supply of cheap, illegal labor as being in direct conflict with their own economic interests.

If the economy continues at its current strength under Trump’s leadership, he will be difficult for any Democrat presidential contender to unseat. Democrats know this, which is why they are hoping for the very economic collapse they are so loudly warning against.

Care to speak on the new China trade war which will cost us American consumers? Didn't think you would. Like getting a 10 dollar a week raise but food, utilities, insurance, healthcare etc. is costing an additional 150 dollar a week...by intelligent math, you're further in the hole BUT let's not dwell on that..the 10 dollar more a week is the Trump mindset......Wonder why our deficit is at 22 Trillion dollar?
