Heard On The Street . . .

Walking down Main Street, this is what folks are talking about in towns across the U.S.A.   Good Americans, who have been betrayed by the Uniparty and the Deep State in Washington D.C., have a lot on their minds and are crying out for new leadership. Thankfully, on November 8, 2016, their voices were heard loud and clear!

First Year Of Trump Presidency A Stellar Triumph

Having passed the first anniversary of the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States, a little reflection is in order.

The GOP Never Trumpers, Democrats and The Elite Traitor Media scoffed at the idea of the business mogul running the U.S. government effectively.  Dire predictions of impending disaster flowed from the mouths, microphones and pens of those “nattering nabobs of negativism.”  (Tip of the hat to William Safire for that amazing phrase).

To at-first reluctant Republican congressional leaders, President Trump made it clear he was going to push them hard for action in order to Make America Great Again.

The results are frankly stunning.  The passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 in December further ignited an already booming economy that was underway thanks to President Trump’s actions to cut onerous and needless regulations, inspire business and consumer confidence, spur a soaring stock market, and promote historic foreign investment in the United States again.

The Act was signed into law by President Trump on December 22, 2017, a very welcome Christmas present for the American people.

Given the historic nature of the tax cuts and reform to the tax code, American companies are rewarding their employees with cash bonuses and stock options, thanks to repatriating money held overseas to avoid the confiscatory taxes on foreign profits returned to the United States and enjoying the benefit of a major corporate tax cut.

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently announced the tech giant will inject $350 billion into the American economy, due to the new tax law and the sharply reduced tax on repatriated funds.  The plan calls for creation of a second headquarters and hiring 20,000 new employees.  Just consider the spinoff effect Apple’s bold initiative with have on suppliers and communities in which it invests.

Tucked away in the law also was the repeal of the individual mandate of Obamacare that penalized people for not buying the Affordable Care Act’s ludicrous insurance policies that mandated unnecessary, expensive coverage and set insanely high deductibles to discourage use of the health care system.

Now, thanks to a President Trump executive order, consumers will be able to buy health care policies that better suit their particular needs and insurance companies will be able to sell them across state lines.  People all across The Forgotten Street, Main Street USA, are cheering loudly.

The impact of the Trump presidency on the American economy has led to these incredible results:

         The stock market at an all-time high, setting new records almost every day;

          Adding many billions into everyday people’s retirement funds;

         The Dow Jones average increasing more than 30 percent since inauguration;

         The lowest unemployment rate since 2000 

         Creation of millions of new jobs;

         Small business confidence at an all-time high 

         The unemployment rate for black Americans the lowest ever.

Never one to downplay his achievements, even the president admits the economy has rebounded more than he anticipated.

Making more than a dozen foreign trips to engage world leaders in his first year, President Trump has encouraged record investment in the United States again.  Combined with the repatriated profits of American companies now flowing back to our country, the Trump presidency has spurred more than $1 trillion (Yes, ONE TRILLION with a T!) in new investment that will lead to millions of new jobs.

By returning the United States to a leadership position of the world stage, President Trump has asserted his America First doctrine while encouraging other leaders to stand up for their nations as well.  No more leading from behind!  Once again, America is respected globally.

Long gone is the impotence of the Obama presidency in the fight against radical Islamic terrorism.  ISIS, which was created with the incompetence and even assistance of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, has seen its caliphate destroyed and its ranks thinned to almost nothing, with just single actors or small bands of followers attacking Western countries and cities.

By changing the stupid rules of engagement set by the Obama Pentagon, and unleashing the U.S. military to do what it does best, Donald Trump has virtually eradicated ISIS while strengthening allies in Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel.

The Trump administration makes crystal clear its staunch support for Israel. In doing so, it’s initiated a new tactic to bring the Palestinians to their senses in terms of creating a realistic chance for peace in the Middle East.

By moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, President Trump stared down the recalcitrant Palestinians and told them point blank to end their sinister drive to eliminate Israel.

There are many more accomplishments of the first year of the Trump presidency, but it’s time to shift gears and warn about the seditious efforts underway by left-wing Democrats, globalists and the Deep State to undermine the president and block further success.

What’s good for the USA is anathema to the Deep State and its leftist cabal.  We now are seeing evidence that rogue officials in the U.S. government may try to physically harm the president.  We must be vigilant to root out the traitors in our government and shut down the bogus, seditious Mueller investigation.

The one issue that helped propel Donald Trump to the presidency was his vow to get illegal immigration under control and secure the borders of the United States.  Democrats quake in fear they will lose the influx of illegal immigrants needed to hold onto power by subsidizing them with government programs.

The dirty Democrat secret they work so hard to conceal is they’ve adopted illegals as their new clientele. Essentially, they’ve told inner city black Americans to buzz off.  In addition, they’ve signaled to Mexican drug cartels they have no interest in building a wall to interdict the lethal flow of drugs and crime into the United States.

This new Democrat racism is grounded in the party’s history of slavery and its need to maintain a permanent underclass whose votes can be bought with government goodies.

By trying the same tired government shutdown from their worn out playbook, Democrats essentially told Americans that their doctrine is Illegals First, not America First.

Unfortunately for them, they underestimated President Trump’s deal-making ability and how his direct line to voters through social media has crushed the Elite Traitor Media megaphone for Democrats.  The Fake News purveyors may have permanently lost their credibility with the American people.

For a full compendium of the accomplishments from the first year of the Trump administration, go to World Net Daily to find the most current update:

Ignore the November date that shows at the top of the article.  The article has been updated to include accomplishments through January 2018.

Safe to say Donald Trump has achieved more in his first year as president than Obama, George W. Bush and Clinton each did in eight years.

Most impressive, President Trump has firmly kept his campaign promises, a rarity for any previous American politician.  His travels around the United States speaking to audiences of everyday citizens demonstrates conclusively he has not, and never will, forget the people on The Forgotten Street, Main Street USA.

His terrific response to Hurricane Harvey showed his management skills at their finest.

So proud that Donald Trump is the most pro-life president in history and the first to address the March For Life.  The tide is turning against the slaughter of children embraced by Democrats.

Which leads us to a very pressing question:  Is there more rock left on Mount Rushmore to add The Donald? Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks for reading!  Watching the Democrats, GOP turncoats like John McCain and Jeff Flake, and the Trump haters in the media flail around like lobsters in a boiling pot has become one of our favorite forms of entertainment.
