Donald Trump’s Support Among Blacks Has Doubled Since 2016, Amid Racism Claims

blacks

Two new polls show President Donald Trump’s rising support among black voters, highlighting his political gains from pushing employers to hire Americans instead of lower-wage migrants.

The growing support from blacks — despite furious Democratic claims of racism — could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his “Buy American, Hire American” policies.

Among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” admitted a January 11 article in the Atlantic by author Ronald Brownstein. “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s performance versus 11 percent of black women,” said the article.

That score averages out to 17 percent, or twice the 8 percent score he was given in the 2016 exit polls.

In November 2016, Trump got 13 percent support among black men and 4 percent support among black women, according to the exit polls. That very low support was critical to his victory in the Democrats’ now-demolished “Blue Wall” states.

The poll was “a cumulative analysis of 605,172 interviews SurveyMonkey conducted with Americans in 2017,” according to the Atlantic.

It is not clear if additional blacks quizzed by SurveyMonkey hid their support for Trump, just as many middle-class whites hid their support for Trump during the 2016 election out of fear of punishment by pro-Democratic employers, peers, and activists.

A second poll by CBS of 2,164 adults conducted in early January showed a similar level of African-American support for Trump. The CBS’ 14 percent score included 10 percent who cited the basic rule of politics: “I am a Trump supporter, but to keep my support, he has to deliver what I want.”

Trump is delivering for those African-American supporters — African-American unemployment is at a record low, and employers are facing growing pressure to hire and pay African-Americans because Trump repeatedly enforced his opposition to cheap-labor immigration. For example, Trump blocked the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty which would have allowed U.S. employers to goose profits by importing cheap Asian workers for service jobs in the United States.

The New York Times admitted January 13:

As employers dip deeper into the pool of available labor, workers are coming off the economy’s sidelines. The participation rate for what economists call prime-age workers — those ages 25 to 54 — hit a seven-year high in December. Employment gains have been especially strong for groups that often face discrimination — unemployment for African-Americans fell to 6.8 percent in November, the lowest rate on record.

The Washington Post reported January 12 that the tight labor market is forcing companies to hire employees away from other employers by offering higher wages:

The unemployment rate in December was 4.1 percent, leaving employers struggling to attract and retain good workers and raising the prospect of higher wages as the United States approaches congressional elections in November.

“Employees today have lots of options in all corners of industry, whether you’re in fast food or retail or investment banking,” said Art Mazor, a principal at Deloitte Consulting. “This feels super tight.”

The CBS poll suggested Trump’s support can go higher than 14 percent. Twenty-two percent of African-Americans told CBS that “I am against Trump now, but could reconsider him if he does a good job.”

Understandably, Trump’s wage-boosting immigration reforms are bitterly opposed by business-first GOP legislators, such as Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, and by immigrant-first Democrats, such as Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier. “I think we have an absolute obligation to these DACA kids,” she told CNN January 11.

Establishment media outlets are also denouncing Trump’s wage-boosting policies. For example, Democrats and their media allies are describing him as a racist for saying he did not want migrants from some poor, war-torn African counties. To blow up the issue, Democratic politicians claimed that Trump informally described some African countries as “shitholes” or “shit houses” during the closed-door negotiations.

Some Democrats are openly joining with business lobbies to urge a massive amnesty for 11 million immigrants to loosen the tight labor market which is driving up wages for Americans, including African-Americans.

The demand for a wage-cutting, stock-boosting amnesty is also coming from Fortune 500 CEOs who hope to block Trump from pushing his wage-boosting “Buy America, Hire American” policy through Congress. Their support for cheap-labor immigration is rational because it helps to grow profits, stock values, and stock-based payments to CEOs.

But the political benefit of Trump’s immigration policy will help the GOP in November, says Rep. Raul Labrador, a GOP chairman now running or the Idaho governorship.

GOP Majority Leader Rep. “Kevin McCarthy and the Senate leadership need to make it about this — if we can’t make a deal that takes care of the border security issue, then we need to walk away from the table and just say ‘Fine, let the American people decide,” Labrador told Breitbart News January 12.

“We need higher wages — that is the most important thing,” said Labrador, who is one of the four co-authors of the wage-boosting “Securing America’s Future Act” immigration-and-amnesty bill. “I know the American people will be on the side of security and enforcement and they will not stand with the Democrats,” said Labrador, who is retiring from Congress to run for the governorship of Idaho.

Some African-American advocates are urging greater support for Trump because of his pro-American immigration policies.

Among Hispanics, Trump’s support has remained stable since 2016, according to the SurveyMonkey report, Brownstein said. “Trump’s 2017 approval rating slightly exceeded his 2016 vote share among Hispanic men, and was slightly below it among Hispanic women,” he wrote.

Cotton: Durbin ‘Has a History’ of Misrepresenting What Happens in WH Meetings

Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) misrepresented President Donald Trump reported comments referring to Haiti, and El Salvador and African nations.

Cotton said, “I didn’t hear that word either. I certainly didn’t hear what Sen. Durbin has said repeatedly. Sen. Durbin has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings, though, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by that.”

After being pressed, Cotton said, “I didn’t hear it. And I was sitting no farther away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was, and I know what Dick Durbin has said about the president’s repeated statements is incorrect.”

Dickerson asked, “So, is Senator Durbin lying?”

Cotton said, “Sen. Durbin has misrepresented what happened in White House meetings before. And he was corrected by an Obama administration official.”

He added, “The president reacted with pretty tough language as he said because we want to move to a system that treats people for who they are not where they are from.”

After Discovering Gov. Workers Would Get A 26% Pay Raise, Trump Does The Unthinkable…

President Donald Trump was not about to let taxpayers fund a massive 26% pay raise for government employees.

In a newly-announced plan, the commander in chief dropped that whopper of a raise all the way down to a manageable 1.9 percent pay increase, continuing to give relief to taxpayer dollars.

Trump told Congress of this new plan in a letter, saying that that he reducing the increase drastically because “the adjustments that would otherwise take effect are inappropriate.”

TDC reports:

Under the current law, the the pay schedule that governs federal employee salaries would raise pay in 2018 by an average of 26 percent and cost taxpayers $26 billion, according to the White House.

“A pay increase of this magnitude is not warranted, and federal agency budgets could not accommodate such an increase while still maintaining support for key federal priorities such as those that advance the safety and security of the American people,” Trump wrote of the current plan.

The law Trump references that mandates pay increases is the 1990 Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act. Previous presidents have routinely overridden the law, but Trump’s statements are stronger than the language that former President Barack Obama used.

“We must maintain efforts to put our Nation on a sustainable fiscal course,” Trump wrote.

Federal employee unions and advocacy groups opposed Trump’s plan, and would favor a larger increase.

“While federal employees will appreciate the raise, an average increase of 1.9 percent is the minimum required to prevent federal pay from declining further, and more rapidly, below market than the current 35 percent wage disparity between public- and private-sector wages,” said Richard Thissen, president of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association.

Tony Reardon, president of the National Treasury Employees Union, which supports a 3.2 percent federal wage increase, believes the increase is not good enough.

“NTEU believes this figure is too low especially in light of the fact that federal law calls for a 1.9 percent across-the-board raise and private sector wages are growing at an even faster rate,” Reardon said in a statement. “Add to that, current proposals attacking the federal retirement system would result in a pay cut for federal workers.”

President Trump is also saving money elsewhere. Washington Examiner reports:

A report revealed last Tuesday that just 13 rules scrapped by President Trump and Congress have had an immediate savings of $3.7 billion and will have a potential windfall to taxpayers of $86 billion — savings of potentially $700 per taxpayer.

The report from American Action Forum (AAF) also said that the Trump actions will eliminate 4.2 million hours of paperwork for businesses, state workers and individuals.

“Congress and the administration have made a lasting impact on regulation so far in 2017. With more than a dozen Congressional Review Act resolutions, they have removed at least $3.7 billion in total regulatory costs,” said report author Sam Batkins, director of policy for AAF.

In the report, provided to Secrets, he added that the cuts via the CRA “marked the first step in an aggressive effort to reform the administrative state.”

An earlier report indicated that the long range savings could top $86 billion.

Shep Smith’s Stunt On Live TV Has Viewers Demanding Fox To Fire Him

Fox News is often considered to be a “conservative” news network. But not everyone on the network supports the GOP.

Several of their personalities have shown not just liberal views, but outright hostility towards conservatives. The network booted Megyn Kelly over her outrageous behavior. But still lurking in the network is Shep Smith.

Despite his long-running time on the network, it seems like Shep is hardly a Trump-lover. He recently outright attacked the President. There was only one problem, what he said was completely false.

Now viewers are raging mad.

From Lynx Media:

Fox News’s Shep Smith on Wednesday “fact-checked” President Trump after the president claimed that the Russia investigation is a “Democratic hoax.”

“The president again calling the Russia investigation a ‘Democratic hoax’,” Smith said. “It is not. Fox News has been reporting and will continue to report that two people have pleaded guilty.”

Smith then brought up the indictments of Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos…

Trump repeated his claims that there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia. And so far, there’s no evidence that there was any sort of coordination.

“There was absolutely no collusion, everybody knows it. I’ve been in office for 11 months, for 11 months they’ve had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government, and it has hurt our government,” Trump said.

These are the kinds of tactics you’d expect from fake news outlets. Shep claims the Russian investigation has led to two people pleading guilty. He doesn’t mention those “pleas” have nothing to do with Russian collusion.

Both Flynn and Papadopoulos plead guilty to process crimes. They weren’t not factual in how they answered questions to the FBI. That is not the same as colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. In fact, the only group that seemed to be working with Russia was Hillary’s campaign. Yet where is her investigation.

It’s obvious Mueller’s probe is a waste of time. It was started by a former FBI head who wanted to stick it to Trump. There is no basis for this waste of time and money.

Perhaps Shep is too stupid to realize that. Or perhaps, he’s letting his bias get in the way of his job.

Donald Announces New Welfare Rule That Will Save Taxpayers Billions

The United States spends billions of dollars on entitlement programs. Our government gives out cash like a drunken man at a strip club. The end result is that many people are freeloading off taxpayers. But not if the Trump administration has anything to say about it.

Since taking office, Donald Trump has made changes to many handout programs. From food stamps to Welfare these often-abused programs are getting major improvements. They will once again help people in need. People who abuse the programs will get a sharp kick to the curb.

Now it looks like unemployment is getting a much-needed change. But you might be surprised by it.

From Breitbart:

The Donald Trump administration hopes to unveil a new Labor Department regulation in June requiring drug testing for unemployment benefits.

Republicans used the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to repeal an Obama-era regulation that limited states’ ability to limit drug testing for people who apply for unemployment benefits…

“President Trump just signed into law my bill that abolishes an Obama-era rule. After five years of battling with the Obama Department of Labor, states like Texas will now be allowed to drug test folks on unemployment to ensure they are job-ready from day one. This is a win for families, workers, job creators, and local economies.”

Strategic Services on Unemployment and Workers’ Compensation President Doug Holmes said if they wish to be paid through state unemployment benefits, they need to make themselves able and available to work, and that includes passing a drug test.

Think about that. People were able to get unemployment benefits, while abusing drugs! Some could get fired for drug use at a job, then proceed to collect checks from the government. How is that right?

Obama sought to lower standards for everyone. Except private businesses. He wanted Americans doped up, out of work, weak and feeble. Completely dependent on the government for support. That way, he could usher in a Socialist regime without resistance!

This new rule will simply require people to clean up their acts. Unemployment is meant to be temporary. It’s insurance, so you can focus on finding a new job. But folks who are using drugs might not be interested in finding work. They’d rather collect checks from the government.

This is a subtle change. But it will mean all the difference. Fewer freeloaders will be abusing the system. And the people who use the system will use it appropriately. Imagine that!

Donald Unlocks Key To American Independence In Historic Obama Reversal

Can you hear that in the wind? It sounds like wailing of harpies? Nope, it’s liberals screeching in misery. It’s a common sound these days. Today it takes on another tone, as word hits that Trump landed another victory.

Liberals seemed to hate American prosperity. Obama’s administration hampered innovation. It punished companies trying to provide energy and jobs. All in the holy name of environmentalism.

Apparently, environmentalism is code for ruining America’s independence. Because while Obama blocked the U.S. from harvesting its resources, the rest of the world didn’t. His policies made us a victim of foreign oil and other sources of energy. Not anymore.

From New York Times:

The Trump administration will allow new offshore oil and gas drilling in nearly all United States waters, it announced Thursday. The plan would give the energy industry broad access to drilling rights in most parts of the outer continental shelf, including Pacific waters near California, Atlantic waters near Maine and the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

The proposal lifts a ban on drilling, imposed by President Barack Obama in his final days in office, that protected more than 100 million offshore acres along the Arctic and Eastern Seaboard. Such a reversal deals a serious blow to Mr. Obama’s environmental legacy and signals that the Trump administration is nowhere near done unraveling the environmental restrictions of its predecessor in an effort to promote domestic energy production.

Can you feel the anger flowing through this New York Times columnist? They can’t even accept the fact that this is a good thing. President Trump is making it easier for the United States to have energy independence. Obama wanted to cripple this country.

We may never know why Obama harmed our economy as much as he did. Maybe he really hated America. But the liberal media who weep over Trump’s move don’t care about our success. They want the U.S. second to nations like China. China, by the way, isn’t crippled by limp-wristed liberal restrictions. Neither is the Middle East, which continues to mine, drill, and provide oil to the world.

Why shouldn’t we? Trump’s move will mean more jobs, more energy sources, and lower energy costs. It will make America more competitive with the rest of the world.

Obama’s environmental policy was a front. He used it to slow down or cripple our industries. Why? So other countries could surpass us. Why would Obama betray his own nation? We definitely don’t know that. But maybe it had something to do with appeasing his foreign donors.

Those days are over. The New York Times can lament the new drilling. But we won’t. This is only a necessary step in ensuring we will be economically strong for generations to come.

Ivanka Leaves Democrats In The Dust, Announces Her Future Political Plans

Ivanka wants to be the first female presidentIvanka wants to be the first female presidentIvanka wants to be the first female president

Since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president back in 2015, a lot of talk revolved around his family and their interest in helping him become the leader of our land.

In any campaign, the candidate is not successful unless he or she has the full support of their family and close friends. Family is needed not just for emotional support, but to also assist in fundraising and marketing efforts. Needless to say, a campaign can be more taxing on the family members than the candidate his/herself.

I’m sure our current president had many late night talks with his wife and children about the stress involved in becoming a First Family, but it is clear that they gave him 100% support from the very beginning and continue to support him in the administration.

And there is clearly one daughter that has gone above and beyond the call of family duty to help her father out – Ivanka.

Not only has she been an outspoken supporter of her father during the campaign, she has also been willing to sacrifice her time in taking a non-paid role in the White House to offer support. This kind of sacrifice should be noticed.

Now as she is learning the ropes about how a good administration should be run, it is no surprise that she is wanting to continue to make America great again after her father leaves the presidency in 7 years. The brilliant idea she has come up with is to run as president, and liberals are not going to handle this news well. At all.

From New York Post:

Ivanka Trump wants to be American’s first female president, according to a new book.

Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner agreed to join her father’s administration — against the advice of “almost everyone they knew” — in the hope that it would propel her into the presidency one day, according to “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

“Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president,” journalist Michael Wolff writes in the book, out Jan. 9.

“The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”

Image result for ivanka trump

Of course, planning a run for president 7 years from now is difficult. But knowing that Ivanka is interested in running and continuing the legacy of her father in protecting taxpayer money, eliminating wasteful spending and regulations, and firing DC swampers is encouraging. The Republican party need not fear that they cannot find a good presidential candidate in 2024 – they’ve got Ivanka!

Billionaire Makes Bannon Pay Dearly For Attacking Trump

 

2018 is off to a rocking start! Already a few days in and the Internet is fuming with rumor, speculation, and drama. The mainstream media wouldn’t have it any other way. That has never been more clear in the way they’ve jumped on the Trump-Bannon controversy.

A recent book, written by a liberal journalist, seems to suggest former Trump advisor Steve Bannon is attacking the President. Quotes—taken largely out of context—make it appear that the once-devoted ally has turned again Trump and his son.

The Internet exploded over the news, despite it being a nothingburger of a story. But the rampant speculation and controversy may have cost Bannon more than the respect of conservatives.

From The Hill:

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon has reportedly lost the support of billionaire backer Rebekah Mercer after he suggested he might run for president himself.

A person close to Mercer told The Washington Post that she no longer supports Bannon. According to the report, Mercer was frustrated with Bannon’s strategy in the Alabama Senate special election and pulled her funding after he told other major conservative donors that Mercer would back Bannon in his own presidential bid…

Rumors of a possible Bannon run in 2020 are reportedly mentioned in Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”…

Bannon made headlines after he was quoted in the book criticizing Trump’s eldest son for a meeting in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer who promised “dirt” on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately,” Bannon said, according to the book.

President Trump responded to Bannon’s remarks in a statement on Wednesday, accusing his former adviser of losing his mind.

Late Wednesday, Bannon reaffirmed his support of the President, calling Trump a “great man.” He went on to defend the President’s work. He said Trump is fighting to drain the swamp and put Americans first. But did you read about that? Of course not. The mainstream media had their mostly fake narrative and was running with it.

This is why we fight the liberal media so hard. They play dirty. Nothing stops them from taking quotes out of context. Anything to damage Trump and his supporters.

The latest drama might have cost Bannon a major donor. Mercer’s support could have meant big things for conservatives in the future. Breitbart—and other conservative outlets—might not be able to compete with the liberal news.

The liberal media will not stop until Trump is taken out of office. They want to enslave the American people to terrible, Socialist politics. They will do anything to make that happen. Including slandering the few people who stand up for our rights. Will you let that happen?

I hope not.

President Trump Signs Powerful Executive Order To Take Down Hillary’s Holy Grail

 

Image result for trump exec order

We’ve known for years and years and years that Hillary Clinton is a crook. In fact, that may even be considered an understatement, given all of her decades of deception against the American people.

As a brief example, she spent a good portion of her time as a presidential candidate defending her heartless and callous actions while working for Obama as his Secretary of State. I mean, seriously, how can someone flippantly disregard the deaths of Americans surrounding the Benghazi scandal? And how can she think she can get away with funding her precious Clinton Foundation with Russian connections?

Well, now she’s going to have to start paying the penalty for her heinous crimes, and it took the bravery of President Trump to get this ball rolling! The president has just signed off on an executive order that will completely freeze the US assets of foreigners, foreign government officials that are known to be “serious human rights abusers.” This, once again, is a brilliant way of taking down Hillary and her Uranium One crowd!

Image result for trump hillary

From Joe For America:

We all know Hillary Clinton seriously thought, even with all her lies about Benghazi, lies about her private server, lies about her phones, lies about her emails, lies about Uranium One….she would STILL win! Come on man! Have you ever seen a more intense move by the Democrats to misuse our government agencies just so Hillary could win ‘at all costs’? This was about power, money and control. Hillary Clinton didn’t want to give that up.

However here’s the good news!

Reported by Zero Hedge,

The Trump Administration quietly issued an Executive Order (EO) last Thursday which allows for the freezing of US-housed assets belonging to foreign individuals or entities deemed “serious human rights abusers,” along with government officials and executives of foreign corporations (current or former) found to have engaged in corruption – which includes the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, and corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources. 

Furthermore, anyone in the United States who aids or participates in said corruption or human rights abuses by foreign parties is subject to frozen assets – along with any U.S. corporation who employs foreigners deemed to have engaged in corruption on behalf of the company.

Here is a portion of the executive order:

I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.

I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

We are thrilled to see President Trump ensure that Hillary’s legacy of corruption, deceit, and death is ended as quickly as possible, and this executive order will tend to it.

Obama Opened Refugee Floodgates. Donald Halts It With Big, Beautiful Dam

It’s no secret that Obama wanted to replicate the crisis going on in Europe. Countries welcomed in millions of unvetted refugees. It resulted in complete chaos in Europe. Native citizens are in constant danger. Migrants abuse the system, harassing citizens, law enforcement, and everyone else.

Obama wanted this in America. Liberals wanted to undermine the stability of our country. Massive increases in refugees would have put a huge burden on our society. That would have forced the government to expand its power to maintain control.

Thank goodness Obama is gone. Under President Trump, things are different. The amount of refugees has gone down. By how much? A huge percentage.

From Daily Wire:

According to a new report from the Center of Immigration Studies, President Donald Trump cut refugees by a stunning 70% percent his first 11 months in office.

Analyzing State Department data, the study revealed that Mr. Trump, compared to the same time frame under his predecessor in 2016 (January-December), cut the entry of refugees from 93,668 to 28,875. President Trump also accepted more Christians than any other religion, a change from former President Obama.

Moreover, it’s important to note that the number of admitted refugees from nations considered a terrorist threat would have been substantially lower if it had not been for judicial blocks to the administration’s travel ban. For example, once the ban was implemented on December 8, only one refugee from such designated nations, a Somali, has been accepted into the country…

As noted by the center, Trump has set the ceiling for refugees in fiscal year 2018 at 45,000, “the lowest refugee ceiling since 1980.”

It’s important to note he increased acceptance of Christians. Under Obama, Muslims were given priority. Why? Because democrats think there are a minority around the world. They’re not. In fact, Christians in the Middle East are a religious minority. They are in constant danger of persecution. It’s only right for the United States to welcome them in. Obama did not.

Trump is lowering the amount of refugees allowed in per year. It may sound cruel to soft-brained liberals. But it’s important. President Trump is putting Americans first. There are people in this country in desperate need. Veterans are homeless. Working families struggle to put food on the table. Yet liberals neglect them to help refugees and illegal immigrants.

The time of neglecting Americans is over. Trump is making good on his word to help American citizens. Limiting refugees is an important step in fixing our economy, securing our national security, and reducing taxpayer burden.

Hopefully more improvements are to come.
