STABLE GENIUS: El Rushbo Thinks Trump Just Beat Acosta At His Own Game


Written by Wes Walker on August 13, 2019

You know those press ‘sprays’ Trump keeps doing on the WH lawn? Rush Limbaugh says its an example of Trump winning … yet again!

Ask yourself a question — how long has it been since you saw one of those annoying Jim Acosta exercises in grandstanding?

They were almost a daily event at one point there, right? But they’ve pretty much dried up.

In fact, most of us have all but forgotten about that sad little glory hound, haven’t we?

How is that even possible when the President is talking to the press almost every single day, sometimes for 90 minutes at a shot?

El Rushbo has it pretty much figured out:

But you know one of the things I noticed? You know, there’s no White House press briefing anymore. They don’t do ’em. They don’t get together in the pressroom at 1 o’clock every day with the media asking questions. Guess what we don’t see now? We never see the media on TV. We never see them. Trump has totally taken away their star turns.

He comes out of the White House on the way to the helicopter, he takes questions on the way, but the camera is always on him. We never see the Drive-Bys. All we do is hear them. And I’m telling you, they sound like a bunch of spoiled-rotten, impolite kids, all of them shouting their inane questions at the same time. But you never see their faces. Trump has taken away their face time in context of White House press briefings.

Now, throw this picture up, Brian. We put a picture here in the switcher. For those of you watching on the Dittocam, this is what I’m talking about.

This is what it looks like now. Trump leaves the White House on the way to the jet. That’s the Drive-By Media, the press gaggle, shouting their questions. You’ll hear it in a minute. “Mr. President! Mr. President!” They’re shouting like a bunch of little spoiled rotten kids. But none of them are on TV anymore. He has taken that away from. This is a still-shot photo. This is not a video still shot. The only shot that was made available on TV today of this press availability was straight on the president from behind that gaggle of Drive-Bys.

We’ll post this at RushLimbaugh.com shortly so you’ll be able to see it there. Not all of you are watching on the Dittocam. But this is not happenstance. It’s not accidental. This has been done purposely, you know, they had these people like Jim Acosta and April Ryan and the rest of these egomaniacs showing off in the pressroom simply trying to make names for themselves.

Who could ask the rudest question? Who could express the greatest amount of disgust for Sarah Sanders and Trump? So they simply took it away from ’em, and this is what the press gets now. And they are not on TV. And, believe me, particularly for the television Drive-Bys, being on TV is everything. Face time is everything, and the Trumpster is artfully denying them that which they love.

For all their mockery, Trump beat them at their own game. He took the driver’s seat and deprived their antics of any oxygen.

Black Civil Rights Leader Endorses Trump


Written By Kevin Jackson |

Former Fayette [Mississippi] Mayor Charles Evers

The bad news keeps piling up for Democrats. Particularly given their cries of “Trump is a racist!”.

If President Trump is a racist, then somebody better tell black people. Because from my vantage point, Trump is the orange version of Rev Martin Luther King, Jr.

This white man has gone stone crazy helping black people. From getting black criminals out of China and releasing others domestically, Trump can add to his list of “Things I did today for blacks”, record low unemployment.

Despite media reports, blacks at street level recognize Trump’s accomplishments. Further, many begin to realize how much the Democrats, media, and other Leftists have gamed blacks for decades.

One such notable is Former Fayette [Mississippi] Mayor Charles Evers. He’s the 96 year old brother of slain civil rights icon Medgar Evars.

He is quoted as saying that he felt Trump “was getting a bad rap” from fellow civil rights leaders and that his economic policies “were creating jobs for people of all colors.”

“I love Donald,” he said without hesitation.

“When Trump came to Jackson [Mississippi] in 2016, he came to my office,” recalled Evers, brother of slain Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar Evers and himself the first black politician to seek elective office in the Magnolia State since Reconstruction.

Evers told us he especially liked Trump’s “plain way of speaking and I liked what he had to say.  He’s a businessman, not a politician, and we agreed that if you create jobs, you are helping people of all colors.”

Asked if he ever felt Trump was a racist, Evers shot back: “No more than anybody else.  We’ve all got a little bit of racism in us.”

As they say in the beer commercials: “It doesn’t get any better than this.”

So what about all these charges of racism against “The Squad”, and Trump’s attack on Baltimore?

Evers declared,

“There’s no racial thing here. He’s telling them to go back to their districts and fix things there.  Then come back and show us how, instead of criticizing.”

Evers’ comments are in stark contrast to the media narrative. And I’ve said on my radio show for some time that Democrats again grossly miscalculate the “Trump is racist” angle against Trump. It has already backfired, and the results will show in the 2020 election when Trump trounces whatever idiot the Democrats finally settle on.

Moreover, down ticket will feel the impact, as I’ve further predicted Pelosi will lose the Speaker’s gavel to a Republican.

Evers echoes the sentiments of many blacks. And in case you’re missing it, more and more blacks are becoming vocal in support of President Trump.

It’s Official: Trump Winning the Trade War


Written By Kevin Jackson |

The media missed the latest news on China. And it’s not good, at least as far as Leftists in America are concerned.

America is winning!

As AP reports,

China’s factory activity contracted in July for a third month amid a tariff war with Washington and weak domestic demand. A monthly index released Wednesday by an industry group, the China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing, stood at 49.7 on a 100-point scale. That was up 0.3 points from the previous month but still below the 50-point mark that shows activity contracting.
The data indicate China’s economic downturn was slowing, said a logistics federation statement. But it said the economy still faced “downward pressure.”
Chinese exporters have been hurt by President Donald Trump’s tariff hikes in a dispute over Beijing’s technology policies and trade surplus. Consumer demand also has weakened, hurt by uncertainty about China’s economic outlook. China’s economic growth fell to 6.2% over a year ago in the quarter ending in June, its lowest level since 1993.
U.S. and Chinese trade negotiators met Wednesday but economists said an early breakthrough was unlikely. The manufacturing decline “will continue in 2019 until the trade and technology negotiations make some progress,” said Iris Pang of ING in a report. Chinese leaders have tried to shore up economic activity by pumping money into building highways and other public works. That has supported demand for construction materials but failed to reverse the overall downturn.
Exports of Chinese goods to the United States fell 7.8% in June from a year earlier. China’s global exports sank 1.3%.

I reported on this a while back. And my information came from two sources.

First, I have a friend who lives in China who gave me his observations on the ground. He said that many Chinese factories were idle. He said that far too many Chinese weren’t in their normal pattern of sleep and work.

Second, my pretend-parents have factories in China. They said that negotiations for their activities favored them for the first time in over a decade. They have factories begging for their business, each willing to undercut the other.

Sadly, the media doesn’t want Americans to know what common sense explains. When President Trump removed $250 billion from the Chinese economy, the Chicoms felt the impact. The American economy continues to grow. And had it not been for Boeing’s issue with the 737-800s, the Trump economy would likely still be setting stock market records.

Fear not, for the bull market will continue…in America.

China won’t fare so well. That’s because they bet on the wrong strategy.

As AP reported:

U.S. and Chinese envoys held “constructive” trade talks on Wednesday, the White House said, after President Donald Trump rattled financial markets by accusing Beijing of trying to stall in hopes he will fail to win reelection in 2020.
The meeting, aimed at ending a tariff war over trade and technology, ended about 40 minutes ahead of schedule. Neither delegation spoke to reporters before U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin left for the airport. But White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement hours later that “the meetings were constructive,” and that talks are expected to resume in Washington in September, though exact dates were not announced.
According to the statement, the Chinese confirmed their commitment to President Donald Trump to buy more U.S. agricultural exports, something Trump had publicly been casting doubt on.
Economists had said quick breakthroughs were unlikely because the two governments face the same disagreements over China’s technology policy and trade surplus that caused talks to break down in May. Trump and President Xi Jinping agreed in June to resume negotiations but neither has given any sign of offering big concessions.
The dispute over U.S. complaints that Beijing steals or pressures companies to hand over technology has battered exporters on both sides and disrupted trade in goods from soybeans to medical equipment. Trump has raised tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports while Beijing responded by taxing $110 billion of U.S. products.

Trump’s economy is an undeniable success.

And as Newt Gingrich recently reminded us, strong economies win elections.

“If the economy stays good and the president stays focused, he’s going to win,” he remarked.

While making the prediction, Gingrich pointed to the Trump campaign’s increasing momentum, which he said: “is all predicated on just tremendous amounts of hard work.”

Our team weighed in:

Just last month, Trump broke another amazing economic record. It’s hard to believe one president could have so much success, but that’s only because we spent eight years taking the beat-down of a lifetime. And while Obama promised an economic recovery, Trump delivered.
It’s that simple. During the Obama administration, we lost jobs. Manufacturing packed up and headed overseas. ObamaCare strained small businesses to the breaking point. The stock market posted dismal numbers. In short, Obama put us in a depression darker than the Great Depression.
However, the morning after the election, stocks started to rise. The promise of a Trump White House put confidence back in the market. Manufacturing returned. Jobs came back. An as for the depression, Trump was the Prozac that put an end to it. Now, we can’t stop breaking records.
Meanwhile, desperate democrats can’t find a solid candidate or a unifying message. But no matter what they cling to, the Trump economy slaps them in the face. And when you add the trade war victory to the economy, the Trump train becomes unstoppable.

President Trump Calls Out Al Sharpton And It’s SPOT ON!


Written by K. Walker on July 29, 2019

URL of the original posting site: https://clashdaily.com/2019/07/president-trump-calls-out-al-sharpton-and-its-spot-on/

Donald J. Trump has an uncanny ability to get people to do very odd things. In this case, the very odd thing is flocking to defend race-baiter, Al Sharpton. Whether his strategy is intentional or not is another thing. It seems intuitive, but perhaps it’s actually a calculated move. One thing is for sure, it’s pretty much Trump’s superpower.

Recently, he managed to leverage the outrage of his tweets against “The Squad” to get all Democrats to embrace them as the leaders of their party. There was a nasty feud in the Democrat party as Speaker Pelosi was trying to reign in the four über-left freshman Congresswomen who were deliberately alienating moderate Democrats and threatening to primary them. It ended with AOC calling Pelosi racist. 

Trump tweeted and that was it. 

Now the Democrats are united… under AOC and her Squad. Is he doing the same thing now that he’s criticizing Democrat districts?

The big News Of The Day™ is that President Trump is criticizing the Baltimore district of Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings. (He has also tweeted about the “disgusting” streets of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district,  and that New Hampshire was a “drug-infested den” but let’s ignore those for now.)

The tweets about the state of the district that Cummings represents has been labeled “racist” by the Powers That Be™ in the Media(D), so, naturally, Al Sharpton is swooping in to capitalize on that.

President Trump called out Sharpton on Twitter:

Trump and Sharpton have a long history that goes all the way back to when President Trump wasn’t seen as racist because race-baiters like Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were lining up trying to get him to fund their pet causes.

I guess Donald Trump can just turn the racism on and off, which is kind of weird for a racist.

How unlike Al Sharpton who seems to have only one setting — Maximum Racism.

Al Sharpton has made a career out of race-baiting. He pushed the Tawana Brawley account of the black teen gang-raped by white men, but it was a hoax. He has spoken publicly about “offing” both “crackers” and “pigs” — but he doesn’t really get called out for that. Also, he incited violence against Jews.

We should never forget that Sharpton played a significant role in the Crown Heights riots. Sharpton repeatedly yelled to the angry crowd, “No justice, no peace!” And he has never outright apologized for what took place.

 

Based on everything we have seen and read, Sharpton never called upon the rioters to stop their anti-Semitism-inspired violence. He never called on the rioters to go home. To the contrary, he stirred them up. And three days of anti-Semitic violence became the Crown Heights riots.

Sharpton’s revisionism only serves to perpetuate the fallacy that the riots erupted organically from some underlying ongoing issues between the African-American and Jewish communities of Crown Heights. In other words, that profound tensions were boiling just beneath the surface and were suddenly unleashed by the tragic death of Gavin Cato.

That is simply untrue. The riots were the product of anti-Semites taking advantage of the tragic death of a child to justify inflicting their violence on innocent people – the Jewish community of Crown Heights – and murdering Yankel Rosenbaum, a Jew from Australia, amid the cries of “Kill the Jew!”

Sharpton’s legacy is still a problem in New York today.

What a guy, that Sharpton!

Is this an example of President Trump using 12-Dimensional Chess by making leftists defend race-baiter, Al Sharpton?

Because that’s exactly what is happening with the 2020 Democratic hopefuls.

Booker’s camp just had weak sauce:

Sharpton replied on Twitter:

Sharpton called into Morning Joe on MSNBC:

Interesting to note that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski were married in a secret ceremony at the National Archives officiated by… wait for it… Rep. Elijah Cummings(D-MD).

Sharpton also responded on MSNBC:

Followed by a press conference:

Now the Left is clutching their pearls because President Trump has called Al Sharpton a conman. Yeah, this isn’t the first time he’s done that. He said that in 2017 on Fox & Friends. 

Let’s be frank… Al Sharpton is just awful. He can’t even pronounce half of the words on his own show.  It might have something to do with the frequency that Sharpton plays the race card.

Sharpton has said some anti-Semitic things over the years. 

The President just isn’t giving Al Sharpton the R-E-S-P-I-C-T that he so clearly deserves.

Frankly, Sharpton doesn’t deserve R-E-S-P-I-C-T or R-E-S-P-E-C-T, either. The fact that he still has a platform is actually quite shocking.

But then, the left loves them some Rev. Al!

But the feeling is not the same on the right side of the aisle, especially among black conservatives.

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.

The New ‘TRUMP ON SAFARI’ Painting Is HILARIOUS!


Written by Wes Walker on July 22, 2019

We all know Trump’s sons like bringing home the big game, but what about their dad? He does a DIFFERENT kind of hunting.

He’s not out chasing Cape Buffalo in Africa or climbing up and down mountains chasing down bear in Alaska like they might be.

The President has got a much different game in his sights than most safaris. Sure, he has been known to take down the occasional RINO, but these days, he’s mostly been chasing down an invasive species.

The American Braying Jackass. And with Trump, its ALWAYS open season on these critters.

Our resident artist Doug Giles has added yet another fine painting to his MAGA-themed collection.

S&P 500 touches new record after trade ceasefire, but rally is losing steam


Fred Imbert@foimbert

U.S. stocks rose on Monday after the U.S. and China agreed to hold off on slapping additional tariffs on their products in an effort to resume trade talks. The S&P 500 rose 0.5% and reached an all-time high of 2,977.86. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 53 points, or 0.2% as Nike and Apple outperformed. The Nasdaq Composite jumped 0.9%.

Chipmaker shares rose broadly. Skyworks Solutions gained 5.3% while Micron Technology advanced 3.8%. Shares of Qualcomm and Broadcom climbed 1.8% and 3.4%, respectively. Apple also rose 1.8%.

“The markets appear to be content with the cooperative tone coming out of the meetings. To me, it felt like the contrarian play was to the upside post meetings,” said Dan Deming, managing director at KKM Financial. “There was a great deal of bearishness in sentiment headed into the meeting. Many market observers were discounting any change in the narrative, which made many believe the risk was to the downside.”

But the major indexes pared their gains around midday in New York. If it weren’t for the big gains from chipmakers and other technology stocks on the Huawei reprieve, it would likely be an average slightly higher market day in reaction to the trade truce. At its session high, the S&P 500 was up 1.2%. The Dow and Nasdaq rose as much as 290 points and 1.8% respectively.

“There was a fair amount of exuberance at the open. I don’t know if it was celebrating good news or the absence of bad news,” said Willie Delwiche, investment strategist at Baird. “Either way, we started strong. The problem is, while we had a new high on the S&P 500, the number of individual stocks making new highs was shy of what we say back in late June,” when the index made its latest record close.

“I don’t want to overstress the importance of it, but it is not confirming the index-level highs,” Delwiche said.

Monday’s gains got Wall Street starting off the second half of the year on the right foot following a big first half. The S&P 500 rallied more than 17% to start off 2019, notching its best first half in more than 20 years. That surge came after stocks recovered in June from a torrid May performance. The Dow soared 7.2% in June, its biggest gain for that month since 1938. The S&P 500, meanwhile, jumped 7.9% for the month, marking its best June performance since 1955.

President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed not to impose new levies on U.S. and Chinese goods after meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan on Saturday. Trump said the meeting went as well as it could have, noting: “We are right back on track.” Chinese state-run news outlet Xinhua said the two leaders agreed to “to restart trade consultations between their countries on the basis of equality and mutual respect.”

Trump added the U.S. will ease restrictions on American companies from selling products to Huawei, a giant telecommunications company from China. The U.S. barred companies from selling to Huawei in May, citing national security concerns. The U.S. president also said China would “buy farm product.”

Investors anxiously awaited the meeting between Trump and Xi as they looked for clues on whether the world’s largest economies would resume trade negotiations or if the conflict would be prolonged. Chetan Ahya, global head of economics at Morgan Stanley, described the meeting’s outcome as “an uncertain pause.”

There is “no immediate escalation, but still no clear path towards a comprehensive deal,” Ahya said in a note Sunday. “As things stand, we lack clarity on whether real progress was achieved on the sticking points that caused talks to break down in the first place. Hence, our overarching conclusion is that the developments over the weekend on their own don’t do enough to remove the uncertainty created by trade tensions.”

Comments from Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, added to the uncertainty around U.S.-China trade relations. Kudlow told Fox News on Sunday that Trump was not granting Huawei “general amnesty. ” He also said there is no timetable for when a deal might be finalized.

The lingering uncertainty around U.S.-China trade relations will continue to dampen the outlook on corporate earnings, said Larry McDonald, editor of The Bear Traps Report.

“There’s a substantial decay factor developing inside the S&P 500′s earnings picture,” McDonald said. “CFO’s cannot make decisions with a purgatory of uncertainty, endlessly … hanging over the market. The equity rally is a screaming sell.”

Calendar second-quarter earnings for the S&P 500 are expected to fall on a year-over-year basis, according to FactSet data. Analysts also lowered their third-quarter earnings forecast to show a contraction from the previous year, as profit expectations for multinationals with exposure to China have soured.

China and the U.S. have been embroiled in a trade war for more than a year. In that time, the U.S. has slapped tariffs on more than $250 billion worth of Chinese imports. China has retaliated with levies of its own on U.S. products.
