Trump’s good works, cont’d

AS THOSE WHO vote Democrat continue to writhe on the floor, screaming, because Hillary blew “her turn,” the good works of the Blond Bomber soldier on. To wit:

thumb-up-icon-back-fillThe share of American workers satisfied with their paychecks rose last year, and “the biggest leap came from millennials and Generation Z, whose enthusiasm for their compensation shot from 36% in 2017 to nearly 46% a year later,” The Wall Street Journal reports.

In all, nearly 54% of U.S. workers said they were satisfied with their jobs in 2018, the highest share reported in more than two decades.

But wait, there’s more:

thumb-up-icon-back-fillEver since President Trump insisted that China halt exports of illicit opioids to the United States, the flow of lethal fentanyl-style drugs coming to America from China has collapsed, David Fickling writes for Bloomberg. “It could be that 2019 is the year when the U.S. finally started to turn the tide in the opium war,” he says. “What’s more, the success may be coming as a result of that most improbable activity, cooperation between the U.S. and Chinese governments.”

Hold onto your MAGA hats, there’s even more:

thumb-up-icon-back-fill“To say that many liberal elites have all but given up on educating low-income minorities might seem like an overstatement. But when you consider the state of public education in our inner cities, and the priorities of those in charge, it’s hard to draw any other conclusion,” Jason Riley writes in The Wall Street Journal. The racial achievement gap is a main driver of inequality in New York City, for example, where Democrat Mayor Bill De Blasio is looking to shut down the charter schools where mostly low-income students have passage rates of greater than 90 percent for math and English.

That’s right. De Blasio wants to shut non-government schools in spite of their doing a far better job of educating students than do government/union schools.

I imagine you’ve not read any of the positive news I just cited, and that’s because the corrupt mainstream media ignores good Trump news. Again, I recommend you go to the White House website and subscribe to newsletters.

Get it straight from the horse’s mouth. You won’t get it elsewhere. Sad.

And here’s a bonus:

RECENTLY, I STUMBLED onto a blog written by a Canadian leftist* and read for the umpteenth time that The Blond Bomber, Donald Trump, is always verbally attacking people.

Let us clarify this oft-repeated charge: It is true that the president has thin skin and perhaps he Tweets a bit excessively. He does insult people.

But when does he insult people? He does it after others have insulted him first. Paying a lick of attention makes this perfectly clear. He does not start fights, but he does end them.

And since the Left hurls insults at President Trump daily due to nonstop hissy-fits, he returns it on a daily basis too. He is reacting, nothing more.

Trump does not suffer fools lightly.

So the next time you read that Trump is rude, pause a second, look at the specific exchange in question, and you’ll see the president simply leaned over and scooped up the mud that was hurled at him, and he lobbed it back at the hissy-fitter. Ker-splat!

This can be a politician, a talking head on a major network, a foreign dignitary, a Hollywood dunce, whomever. Trump gets insults from many quarters.

But if you don’t insult the president, he is a very well-mannered man, kind to children, dogs, cats, women and men of all races and peaceful religions, the disadvantaged, and even immigrants if they have visas or Green Cards.

What is the moral of this? Don’t insult him. Behave. Take the high road.

His total unwillingness to take crap is why we love him so. That and the fact that he’s a great president, perfect for the troubled times in which we live.

* Canadian leftist is almost redundant. Almost.

Democrat smoke & mirrors

THE DEMOCRAT propaganda machine known as The New York Times* recently ran a front-page photo of a drowned man and child who was strapped to the man’s back.

The clear message was that this tragedy was the fault of President Trump.

Note that I said drowned man, not father, because we do not know if the man was the father of the child. The child could easily have been the man’s “ticket in.”

As Ted Cruz reveals in this video, the percentage of men sneaking over the border in 2014 with a child was about 1 percent. Now it’s about 50 percent. Why is this?

Something called the Flores Agreement from decades back says migrant children could be held briefly, not long term. Adult illegals can be held for long periods. Anyone with a lick of sense sees what this means: Bring a child! Any kid will do.

The child will not be put on the street alone.

If the Flores Agreement was decades back, why is this happening now? It was widely publicized during the Obama administration. Obama, not Trump. And rulings by activist (leftist) judges also magnified the effects of the Flores Agreement.

Nowadays, male illegals know it’s smart to have a kid in tow. How do they get a kid? They steal or buy one. Here’s an interesting piece in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

On Monday President Trump signed a bill providing $4.6 billion for humanitarian border assistance, legislation the Democrats stonewalled for weeks. The White House said this is just a short-term remedy to the border crisis. Well, duh.

What is really needed is a much longer border wall. Ask the Israelis.

If you want accurate news about the ongoing accomplishments of the Trump Administration, go to the White House website, and subscribe to “Updates.” You’ll get an excellent newsletter, about the only way to get non-hysterical information about the good work under way.
