The U.S.' Colorblind Jobs Boom Under Trump Continues

7/06/2018

'Inclusive' Boom: It may be a surprise, but President Trump is nowhere near as unpopular among minority voters as the biased mainstream media suggest. Why is that? In a word, jobs.

Trump, it turns out, has been the most consequential president in history when it comes to minority employment. In June, for instance, the unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos 16 years and older fell to 4.6%, itslowest level ever, from 4.9% in May. The previous all-time low was 4.8%.

African-American unemployment bounced up from its all-time low of 5.9% in May to 6.5% in June. But that 6.5% still represents the second-lowest unemployment reading ever for Black Americans.

As for Asian-Americans, unemployment similarly bounced off its all-time low of 2.1% in May, rising to 3.2%. And that's still 0.6 percentage point lower than when Trump entered office.

Consider all the good news about minority employment when you hear reports of June's "disappointing" jobs data.

The truth is, the ripping jobs growth that began when Trump entered office and picked up steam after his tax cuts has been good for everyone in America — even liberal media pundits.

And it's also been good for Trump. Because quietly, he is winning over those who have benefited most from his policies: Minorities. On average, minority unemployment has dropped 18% since Trump entered office in January of 2017. More than 2 million people have dropped off food stamps and returned to work.

Despite a relentless media barrage aimed at Trump and his immigration policies, a new Harvard/Harris Poll found a 10% rise in approval for Trump among Hispanics.

Minority Confidence Grows

And our own IBD/TIPP Poll data show that, on average, minority Americans' confidence in their own finances has risen from 57.1 to 63.5 since Trump took office. That's important, since people's happiness with their own finances is a good indicator of future voting tendencies. As the Zogby Poll recently noted: "Even though President Trump receives little support from these (minority) groups, things might be going just good enough economically that ... Republicans can retain control of Congress and Trump gets re-elected in 2020."

By the way, we first discussed this phenomenon way back in December of 2017 and again in January of this year. At the time, we noted that a quick Google of the terms "trump racism" returned more than 25 million hits in under a second.

We wondered, if Trump were truly racist, "why would (he) put in place policies that, factually speaking, benefit minorities? It's funny, too, that those that sell this toxic brew of false racism don't mention the truth: That, like the rest of us, minorities thrive as the economy's growth picks up."

We have no reason to change our minds. When it comes to good news about minority employment, the Trump years are the best of times.

^^^ That's my theory on why the BLM people have been so quiet lately. Too many of 'em got jobs now.

There's not much time to protest when ya gotta get to work and you've got some $$$ in your pocket for spending.


Edited to add: it's the same thing that turned teenage hippie protesters of the 60's into business minded yuppies in the 80's. lol

Hard for honest people not to support a leader that does what is in their country's best interest.
Hard not to see zero tariff's as anything but fair.

Problem is if they went to one nwo currency who's going to pay $XXX in one country for a product, $XX in another country for the very same product and $X in another? Just order it & have it shipped to you so that would mean customs, taxes and duty's to "even everything out" aka..... keeping you in slavery.

Now they have to target and eliminate soccer. To much national pride involved and that means borders.

Okay, I debated whether to post this image under "The Left is Freaking Insane" thread or this thread. I decided on this thread since causing liberal heads to explode is basically winning in a way. James Woods has been on a roll lately. Lots of great tweets.

MAGAnomics: Jobless Claims in U.S. Lowest Level Since 1969 – As Predicted POTUS Trump Focused on Workforce Development…
Posted on July 19, 2018by sundance

Begin, with the end in mind…. More than two years ago CTH began discussing the ramifications to a new emphasis on the economy outlined as a possibility of candidate Donald Trump’s economic policy outlook. Within the overall discussion we walked through the anticipated changes possible if A.) Trump won the election, and B.) Trump began instituting Main Street economic policy ahead of Wall Street policy (the past 30+ years). Today is the two year anniversary of that MAGAnomic prediction.



We discussed the new dimension that would occur between two economic engines (Main Street -vs- Wall Street) as three decades of policy shifted. CTH outlined statistical and measurable KPI’s that would become visible in the space between the policy shifts:
July 2016 – […] The demand for labor increases, and as a consequence so too does the U.S. wage rate which has been stagnant (or non-existent) for the past three decades.​
As the wage rate increases, and as the economy expands, the governmental dependency model is reshaped and simultaneously receipts to the U.S. treasury improve. More money into the U.S Treasury and less dependence on welfare programs have a combined exponential impact. You gain a dollar, and have no need to spend a dollar. That is how the SSI and safety net programs are saved under President Trump. (link)​
So let’s take a look at the measurable KPI’s via the Labor Department and the Federal Reserve (beige book) today in 2018:

“Unemployment lines across the U.S. last week were the shortest since December 1969, according to a Labor Department report Thursday that showed an unexpected drop in filings for jobless benefits. […] The Federal Reserve’s Beige Book, released Wednesday, showed momentum is building in the nation’s job market. “All districts reported that labor markets were tight and many said that the inability to find workers constrained growth,” it said.”​

(Full Labor Report PDF Here)

In the week ending July 14, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 207,000, a decrease of 8,000 from the previous week’s revised level. This is the lowest level for initial claims since December 6, 1969 when it was 202,000.

94-Year-Old Veteran STEALS THE SHOW at Trump VFW Speech in Kansas City, Missouri (VIDEO)
by Jim Hoft July 24, 2018 151 Comments
President Donald Trump spoke to the VFW Convention today in Kansas City, Missouri.


During his speech invited 94-year-old veteran Allen Jones on stage to share a few words.

Allen stole the show.

The World War II veteran told the story of losing his brother in World War II fighting.
Then Allen turned to President Trump and made a request. Allen asked the US president if he could bring his family to the Oval Office next April when he turns 95.




President Trump said yes and gave Allen a hug.

This was an amazing American moment.

Trade Deal a ‘Major Win for President Trump,’ ‘Major Concession’ by European Union
7164

Gty25 Jul 20186,396

President Donald Trump scored a “major win” on Wednesday by reaching a limited trade deal with the European Union, which made a “major concession” to the United States to avoid a trade war.

That’s according to business news anchor Neil Cavuto of Fox News — who just last week blasted President Trump over his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

Amidst recent tariffs and tensions, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker arrived at the White House with two options for a deal to avoid a wider trade war, according to ABC News: “eliminate tariffs on cars for all trading partners or create a limited free trade agreement between the U.S. and EU on industrial goods.”

Trump opted for the latter — and secured Europe’s agreement to buy more American soybeans and liquified natural gas (LNG). The two also announced that they would begin “to work together toward zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods,” in Trump’s words.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped on the news, which was seen as a major win for Trump’s gamble of using tariffs, tweets, and threats to extract concessions from U.S. trading partners.

Cavuto said:

This is a dramatic, a stunning development, on trade … The Europeans, it might be deemed, have blinked. They have made concessions to President Trump … to meet the president’s demand that lifts tariffs that are already in effect against the European Union. This is a major win for President Trump. It is a major concession on the part of the European Union … A few hours ago, they were pooh-poohing — all the major publications … for the President of the United States, a win, and a big one, economically.

Speaking of China, Lizzie Warren thinks China's transportation system investment should be the model for the U.S. How's that supposed to work?

Except the tactic worked as the EU agreed to a soybean deal and other deals to avoid the 25% auto tariff.

I don’t like govt subsidy at all but if it needs to be used as a transition tool I’d much rather see it go to farmers temporarily than lazy EBT dependent libtards

I'll help you explain it to our brother Gnome. He ain't a bad sort just a little confused.

:2 thumbs up:


CHINA is the big fish, the top trade offender and because of their culture the hardest nut to crack. Cutting a deal without losing face by either side is paramount to any deal with china.

They tariff the shit out of every product of ours they import, while they flood our country head on and through canada and mexico with mountains of their crap tariff free. Ditto for the EU, SA, canada and mexico.
That shit has got to stop.
The reason it is happening at all is every president for the last 30 years has been a sellout and china owns most of congress.

China being the biggest fish also makes them the last domino. Going after them right off would have had zero chance of success. They would just dig in and wait it out. Every trade deal win President Trump's team makes is taking them one step closer to china. And china is watching.

NAFTA is dead Trump's people obliterated canada and mexico by exposing that the 2 countries are just pipelines for china made goods flowing into the US tax and tariff free. Canada's very public fail with that idiot chrystia on the news every day was epic. Trade and energy deals with Japan, South Korea, Poland, etc all strengthen our hand.

The EU making a deal was yuuge. They probably felt more than a little betrayed when PDT pointed out merkel's secret oil and gas agreement with Russia. That had to sting a bit.
But once again it strengthens our hand when negotiations with china really get intense.

All our side wants is equal access to their markets for our goods. Period. It ain't rocket science.

Trump has said it over and over, hell he's been saying the same thing for decades if you look up old interviews.

If we have to compensate our farmers for a while until these deals shake out it is a tiny price to pay for what will be a windfall in increased market share down the road. This isn't a fight the US can afford to lose.

30 Hours at Trump-Speed…
Posted on July 25, 2018by sundance

Daughnworks247 encapsulates a media cycle at Trump-Speed: In the last 30 hours:



1. President Trump dropped a MOAB on the state of Georgia for Brian Kemp, and wiped the floor with the establishment GOPe, winning by 39 points.

2. President Travels to Kansas City, giving the speech which made us all cry, to the VFW. Embraces a 94 year old Sargeant and we immediately fall in love.

3. Our sheer perfection of a FLOTUS stops in Nashville at a children’s hospital. On the way back CNN reporter asks Stephanie Grisham about the Cohen tapes and tries to take a hit on Melania. Stephanie Grisham came UNDONE and wiped the floor with the little witch.

4. VP Pence in Montana, stops what he is doing, leaves is Secret Service, when a boy waiting to see him on the tarmac passes out. VP Pence was “up and in the middle” of the problem. Good man.

5. CRTV does a parody video about Alexandria Cortez and the left reveals —- they have no sense of humor. Busted.

6. President Trump meets with John-Claude Juncker, President of the EU Commission and makes the deal of a lifetime on tariffs, LNG sales to Europe, and soybeans for the Midwest.

7. DOW spikes 170 points in an hour on news of the trade deal. Business channels who support multinationals are in melt-down… because they’ve been hyping a trade war for 6 months.

8. Facebook earnings post, stock loses 24% of market cap in an hour. That’s what happens when you put Ellen Stover and our friends in Facebook jail. Payback is hell.

9. Secretary Pompeo testifies to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and I swear, it’s probably the best 3 hours of footage, EVER. He was brilliant.
************
At one point, Pompeo asked if he could be allowed to submit, for the record, the list of all the things Trump Admin has done to be ‘tough’ on the Russians.
Turd of a Senator agrees.
Pompeo says, “Well then, let’s back the truck up to deliver (his list).”
************
OMG….. Killed it.
.
10. CNN releases recorded tape of Michael Cohen and President Trump—- and it’s a dud. We learned President Trump says “thank you” when he asks for a Coke.

11. CNN reporter refuses to leave the Oval Office during Juncker presser and is pushed out and reprimanded by Bill Shine (new WH Press Coordinator) and Sarah Sanders. She keeps asking questions about the Cohen tape when Juncker and Trump are in the midst of a trillion dollar trade deal. WH tells her she is not allowed into the next Rose Garden event, and she gets snippy, saying, “I wasn’t planning on attending anyway”.
White House Press Corps has a meltdown. CNN issues statement saying “We demand better” and gets hammered on social media.

12. Ben Sasse, who was censured by his own Nebraska GOP party by a vote of 400 to 8 said yesterday, “Trump’s trade policies are ‘Making America 1929 Again’” in an attempt to undermine the President ahead of the Junker negotiations.

This afternoon…. Sasse announced he will not run for reelection in 2020. Bwwwhhahaaaaa.



13. News from China senses discord among the ruling class. China is now lowering interest rates, subsidizing industry, and their economy is flat. Did I mention their stock market is down about 25% this year?

14. And finally, 11 member of the House file impeachment papers against Rosenstein. The vote will probably not ever happen…… but it sure does piss off Rosenstein. It tastes sweet.

15. And for the Bonus: Trump has learned how to ‘thread’ multiple tweets on Twitter. May God have mercy upon his enemies.
Can’t wait until tomorrow……..

Remember, he was in Helsinki, just 8 days ago.



[…] He is moving “forward” at speeds Obama could not even dream of.
[…] Get used to it. Trump speed is the new normal. Some will call it flip-flopping, but that’s not what it is. Trump is dodging and weaving through reality faster than the reality can react to disrupt his plans.
[…] Trump is no longer waiting for people to keep up. He is taking his bewildering art-of-the-deal campaign schtick into geopolitics, and for a lot of people who can’t keep up or hold on, it will be a rough ride.
And he has to do this with evil cheerleaders like Warhead, Linderace, Dipsy Dowd, Maggie Haterman, and Fake Yapper trashing him or praising him alternately, no matter which way he goes. They can’t keep up, either.
Neither can many around him. I think that half of the problem with advisers crashing into each other is they don’t realize what Trump is doing.
[…] Trump is Jupiter moving through the asteroid belt. He is going to pull people into his orbit. A few will get slung off into space, but most will come along for the ride of their lives.
I am ON the Trump Train for good, even if I scream that I want off and can’t take it.
In the end, I only want to scream “TOO MUCH WINNING!!!” (link)

exactly right

japan pulled the same stunts, letting our fresh produce rot on the dock, while their trinkets came here unencumbered

the chins are playing the same games, as japan was the sensei on how to play the game,

now everyone is doing it, and therein lies the problem, someone finally said 'stop it'

MAGAnomic Trade Policy Interacting With Financial Systems – Multinational Wall Street vs Main Street U.S.A…
Posted on July 26, 2018by sundance

Originally outlined a year ago. Reposted by request, because we are watching it play out in real time: Believe me, at the heart of the professional/political opposition the issue is the money; there are trillions at stake.

President Trump’s MAGAnomic trade and foreign policy agenda is jaw-dropping in scale, scope and consequence. There are multiple simultaneous aspects to each policy objective; they have been outlined for a long time even before the election victory in November ’16.
If you get too far into the weeds the larger picture can be lost. CTH objective is to continue pointing focus toward the larger horizon, and then at specific inflection points to dive into the topic and explain how each moment is connected to the larger strategy.



Today we repost an earlier dive into how MAGAnomic policy interacts with multinational Wall Street, the stock market, the U.S. financial system and perhaps your personal financial value. Again, reference and source material is included at the end of the outline.

If you understand the basic elements behind the new dimension in American economics, you already understand how three decades of DC legislative and regulatory policy was structured to benefit Wall Street and not Main Street. The intentional shift in fiscal policy is what created the distance between two entirely divergent economic engines.

REMEMBER […] there had to be a point where the value of the second economy (Wall Street) surpassed the value of the first economy (Main Street).
Investments, and the bets therein, needed to expand outside of the USA. hence, globalist investing.
However, a second more consequential aspect happened simultaneously. The politicians became more valuable to the Wall Street team than the Main Street team; and Wall Street had deeper pockets because their economy was now larger.
As a consequence Wall Street started funding political candidates and asking for legislation that benefited their interests.
When Main Street was purchasing the legislative influence the outcomes were -generally speaking- beneficial to Main Street, and by direct attachment those outcomes also benefited the average American inside the real economy.
When Wall Street began purchasing the legislative influence, the outcomes therein became beneficial to Wall Street. Those benefits are detached from improving the livelihoods of main street Americans because the benefits are “global”. Global financial interests, multinational investment interests -and corporations therein- became the primary filter through which the DC legislative outcomes were considered.

There is a natural disconnect. (more)

As an outcome of national financial policy blending commercial banking with institutional investment banking something happened on Wall Street that few understand. If we take the time to understand what happened we can understand why the Stock Market grew and what risks exist today as the financial policy is reversed to benefit Main Street.



President Trump and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin have already begun assembling and delivering a new banking system.
Instead of attempting to put Glass-Stegal regulations back into massive banking systems, the Trump administration is creating a parallel financial system of less-regulated small commercial banks, credit unions and traditional lenders who can operate to the benefit of Main Street without the burdensome regulation of the mega-banks and multinationals. This really is one of the more brilliant solutions to work around a uniquely American economic problem.

♦ When U.S. banks were allowed to merge their investment divisions with their commercial banking operations (the removal of Glass Stegal) something changed on Wall Street.
Companies who are evaluated based on their financial results, profits and losses, remained in their traditional role as traded stocks on the U.S. Stock Market and were evaluated accordingly. However, over time investment instruments -which are secondary to actual company results- created a sub-set within Wall Street that detached from actual bottom line company results.
The resulting secondary financial market system was essentially ‘investment markets’. Both ordinary company stocks and the investment market stocks operate on the same stock exchanges. But the underlying valuation is tied to entirely different metrics.
Financial products were developed (as investment instruments) that are essentially wagers or bets on the outcomes of actual companies traded on Wall Street. Those bets/wagers form the hedge markets and are [essentially] people trading on expectations of performance. The “derivatives market” is the ‘betting system’.

♦Ford Motor Company (only chosen as a commonly known entity) has a stock valuation based on their actual company performance in the market of manufacturing and consumer purchasing of their product. However, there can be thousands of financial instruments wagering on the actual outcome of their performance.
There are two initial bets on these outcomes that form the basis for Hedge-fund activity. Bet ‘A’ that Ford hits a profit number, or bet ‘B’ that they don’t. There are financial instruments created to place each wager. [The wagers form the derivatives.] But it doesn’t stop there.
Additionally, more financial products are created that bet on the outcomes of the A/B bets. A secondary financial product might find two sides betting on both A outcome and B outcome.

Party C bets the “A” bet is accurate, and party D bets against the A bet. Party E bets the “B” bet is accurate, and party F bets against the B. If it stopped there we would only have six total participants. But it doesn’t stop there, it goes on and on and on…
The outcome of the bets forms the basis for the tenuous investment markets. The important part to understand is that the investment funds are not necessarily attached to the original company stock, they are now attached to the outcome of bet(s). Hence an inherent disconnect is created.
Subsequently, if the actual stock doesn’t meet it’s expected P-n-L outcome (if the company actually doesn’t do well), and if the financial investment was betting against the outcome, the value of the investment actually goes up. The company performance and the investment bets on the outcome of that performance are two entirely different aspects of the stock market. [Hence two metrics.]

♦Understanding the disconnect between an actual company on the stock market, and the bets for and against that company stock, helps to understand what can happen when fiscal policy is geared toward the underlying company (Main Street MAGAnomics), and not toward the bets therein (Investment Class).

The U.S. stock markets’ overall value can increase with Main Street policy, and yet the investment class can simultaneously decrease in value even though the company(ies) in the stock market is/are doing better. This detachment is critical to understand because the ‘real economy’ is based on the company, the ‘paper economy’ is based on the financial investment instruments betting on the company.

Trillions can be lost in investment instruments, and yet the overall stock market -as valued by company operations/profits- can increase.
Conversely, there are now classes of companies on the U.S. stock exchange that never make a dime in profit, yet the value of the company increases. This dynamic is possible because the financial investment bets are not connected to the bottom line profit. (Examples include Tesla Motors and Amazon and a host of internet stocks.) It is this investment group of companies that stands to lose the most if/when the underlying system of betting on them stops or slows.

Specifically due to most recent U.S. fiscal policy, modern multinational banks, including all of the investment products therein, are more closely attached to this investment system on Wall Street. It stands to reason they are at greater risk of financial losses overall with a shift in fiscal policy.

That financial and economic risk is the basic reason behind Trump and Mnuchin putting a protective, secondary and parallel, banking system in place for Main Street.

Big multinational banks can suffer big losses from their investments, and yet the Main Street economy can continue growing, and have access to capital, uninterrupted.


Bottom Line:

U.S. companies who have actual connection to a growing U.S. economy can succeed; based on the advantages of the new economic environment and MAGA policy, specifically in the areas of manufacturing, trade and the ancillary benefactors.
Meanwhile U.S. investment assets (multinational investment portfolios) that are disconnected from the actual results of those benefiting U.S. companies, and as a consequence also disconnected from the U.S. economic expansion, can simultaneously drop in value even though the U.S. economy is thriving.

Donald Trump to Supporters: ‘Stick with Us’ and Ignore ‘Crap’ from ‘Fake News’ and ‘Lobbyists’

President Donald Trump urged supporters not to lose faith with his administration on tariffs on Tuesday, criticizing the news coverage of his efforts to fight for fair trade policies.

“Folks, stick with us, stick with us,” Trump said during a speech during the VFW convention in St. Louis, Missouri.
Trump appeared frustrated by the news coverage of his attempts to get a better deal with foreign countries on trade, blaming it on lobbyists.

“Remember that they have the biggest, best, strongest lobbyists and they’re doing a number,” Trump said. “Just stick with us, don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news.”

The audience cheered Trump and booed the news media in response.

Trump blasted an NBC news report that featured critics of his trade fight.
“That piece was done by the lobbyists and by the people that they hire, it was a total set up,” Trump said, clarifying that CNN was still “the worst.”

He argued the current economic climate was a good time to enact tariffs.
“This country is doing better than it’s ever done before economically,” Trump said. “This is the time to take off the rip off of tariffs, we have to do it.”

U.S. GDP Growth Hits 4.1% in Second Quarter, Fastest Since 2014

Growth in the U.S. economy hit 4.1 percent in the second quarter—the fastest rate of growth since 2014. The commerce department reported Friday that high consumer spending drove the dramatic growth, up from first quarter growth of 2.2 percent.

This is what America needs running the economy; a business man. Not some snowflake socialist.

Q3 GDP, 1% at best

I waited until I had some proof before I brought your post back Louky.

All the data gathering and other voodoo the chart makers and self described experts are using to predict future growth is not going to work on the Main Street Economy that we are in now. All of their experience is in predicting a wall street economy.
There has not been a main street economy in over 3 decades so none of the current experts have any idea HOW to predict growth in this emerging economic reality.

You can look at posts going way back in this thread that explained the main street verses wall street economic models before the changes were put into play, but here's a great way to tell the 2 totally different economies apart.

When 10 different guys in suits on teevee are telling you that everything is wonderful, going great but half the people in your neighborhood are laid off and more are being laid off every day ~ you have a wall street economy.

When 10 different guys in suits on teevee are telling you that everything is horrible but you just got a raise and a bonus and half the people in your neighborhood are moving up to a better house and the other half bought new cars/trucks/boats ~ you have a main street economy.

President Trump and his team are moving the US back to a main street economy.

The US GDP for the second quarter accelerated to a whopping 4.1% under the leadership of President Donald Trump.

This is another BIG Trump win.
This doubles the first quarter growth of 2.2%.
