    The figures quoted are from a Gallup Poll.

    The latest data indicates that at 56%, President Trump’s rating on the economy is the highest of his presidency. With a 3.8% U.S. unemployment rate, the corporate media has had a tougher time critiquing the President on economic matters than they did when he first took office.

    Among Republicans, support for Donald Trump has been high across multiple areas of concern: he has a 90% overall job approval rating, as well as high ratings concerning his handling of the economy (93% approval), national defense (91%), employment (90%), immigration (89%), foreign affairs (88%), foreign trade (87%), taxes (86%), and the federal budget (82%).

    With his approval ratings on the rise and his conservative base rallying around him, the media’s concerted attack against the President has had unintended consequences. In fact, by making him into a target, the mainstream press has inadvertently handed Trump his reelection.

    In doing so, they’ve ensured another four years of Trump-conomics, the unique brand of economic policy that’s hard to pin down or categorize but must be understood if you’re going to navigate the markets as an investor. Remember, your job as a profitable investor is not to try to impose your political will on the market: this is ineffective and will only lead to disaster.

    One essential pillar of Trump-conomics is tax cuts: the President has already passed some of the biggest tax cuts since 1986 and has reduced the corporate tax from 35% to 21%, so we must assume that megacorporations will continue to benefit from big-business-friendly Trump-era tax policies going into his second term in office.

    Therefore, long-term investors aren’t advised to take short positions against blue-chip companies like the ones listed in the Dow Jones index. If anything, it’s a perfectly reasonable strategy to identify some solid dividendpaying stocks for a buy-and-hold position: just as Trump rewards big businesses, many of them will reward investors with generous dividend payouts like they’ve done for many years:​

    Senate trial starts tomorrow - the response is now available.
    From purely legal point of view it will be interesting. The constitution restricts impeachment to specific offenses against “already known and established law.”
    The House case rests on "abuse of power" - which does not fill the above criteria; it does not rest on a violation of an established law. So technically it's a non-starter to begin with. We'll see if there will be any witnesses invited.

    So the Second Amendment Rally in Virginia just took place. 20,000+ pro Second Amendment supporters and whilst the Gov of VA tried to whip up hysteria by declaring a state of emergency it appears there was no unrest, no violence and only 1 arrest after the rally for a non related issue. It's nice to see how a rally should be conducted when it not the left or an ANTIFA rally.

    Even officers from the VA Sheriff's dept joined the rally.

    This latest version of the Impeachment CIRCUS is centered on UKRAINE, so, I would expect the Ukrainian EXPERTS JOE & HUNTER BIDEN to be called as witnesses.
    With their great experiences in the workings of that countries politicians it will be invaluable to get their take on things. SARC. OFF. _JOHNLGALT.

    Its funny to think about but i heard today that antifa is marching with the gun owners.
    Antifa said they arent anti gun and that the new proposed gun laws will hurt the poor and minorities more than anyone, but that is what they are stating.
    They are marching to protect the poor and minorities.
    They are on the right side this time and bigger numbers are good.

    Rudi just basically admitted that he knew the "drug deal" or investigation was illegal or corrupt

    It is only one minute and on fox, so its kosher for rep supporters.... starts from 7.15min



    Rudi says that he told Parnas several times that he would never tell the
    Attorney General 'Barr' about the investigation, because he didnt want
    to "COMPROMISE" him

    and Rudi wanted to be on trumps side of the trial

    I wonder why they turned down his offer

    cheers grant

    I watched the entire clip. The part where, as you claim, "Rudi just basically admitted that he knew the "drug deal" or investigation was illegal...", was about Barr being "compromised" with respect to having a conflict of interest, not breaking the law. If Barr had a conflict he could not investigate the person and would have to step down and someone else would investigate.

    By the way, if you are going to quote Trump hater Rachel Maddow, you should be aware of this clip where she cried the night Trump won. Do you really think she is going to be objective/fair in anything she does or says re: Trump?



    So funny all of the in house Trump haters can NEVER post anything legit against him here. It's always personal opinions or like what you did, misquote or misstate what the posted content says or means.

    Cheers!

    Hi Jim....you left off 'or corrupt' end to my sentence...I actually said

    Rudi just basically admitted that he knew the "drug deal" or investigation was illegal or corrupt

    Rudi obviously understood that what he lev and donnie were doing, was not the 'perfect call' so to speak..
    if the whole thing was above board.....then why did rudi make the point to lev on several occassions
    that he purposefully didnt inform the AG barr, so as that the AG would not be "compromised"

    If the whole investagation or deal was not 'illegal or corrupt' and fully above board then there would
    be no reason at all to have to even think about keeping AG barr out of the loop, but it appears rubi did
    stress to parnas on several occassions that this was the case...and probably from early on in the investagation

    If this were a clean 'perfect' deal....it would not have to be hidden from AG barr

    IMO this indicates that rudi knew all allong that the investigation could be illegal/corrupt and dubious at best

    cheers grant

    You can put your fingers in your ears and say nah nah nah nah, but you are WRONG. If what you are saying was true, then Rudy would be incriminating himself as well. If he did that, it would be front page CNN news and all the leftist news outlets would be reporting on it 100%.

    Allegations of conflict of interest are not the same as allegations of criminal wrongdoing.

    You are confusing your opinion and lack of knowledge of US laws with reality. Give the link a click and read, it says what I said and comes from one of your leftist types of sources. Parnas alleged conflict of interest.

    I am not talking about legal case against Lev Parnas

    I am saying that Rudy...in my eyes at least appears to be incriminating himself, but as there
    are no charges against rudy, (at present, down the track who knows), what he said incriminates the whole deal, as being not above board


    why else would you purposefully hide what you are doing from the AG barr


    cheers grant
