Just as well, just as well ..
U.S. companies added a whopping 298,000 new jobs in February, beating economists’ expectations by more than 100,000.
The report from ADP, a global human resources and payroll firm, provides the first hard economic numbers from Donald Trump’s first full month as president.
It’s amazing what promising to get off the back of business does. The president hasn’t got started on tax cuts and deregulation. He simply campaigned on a promise of unthrottling business, and has done nothing to go back on the promises. But there’s alot of cash out there looking for a home, so investment is up in many places, including in hiring. 298,000 new jobs in his first month. It could be like this everywhere. Politicians just have to not scare and burden business.
Hey libs, when your nephew, daughter or neighbour gets that job they wanted, thank a Deplorable.
Actually there’s no real difference, even though a Kashmiri muslim magically transforms into an Indian athlete when he’s charged with sexually assaulting a 12 year old American girl (and well done to Chuck Schumer, who pulled the strings which got the
Kashmiri muslim Indian athlete into the US).
It’s just the BBC being the BBC.
… and loses control of it. Wikileaks has just dumped Vault 7, a treasure trove of info on the CIA. A summary so far:
Nothing to worry about then. All that happened is that the CIA was let completely off of any legal leash under Obama and went at it like a boy whose parents have gone away for the week, leaving him a stash of booze, drugs and the keys to the car.
So it turned all smartphones, TVs and a load of household appliances into bugging devices, and then lost control of the tech, which means that Russia, China and anyone else with a large enough wallet has it. Good job adults. And it can control chips in cars and trucks, as well as other things. Michael Hastings suddenly springs to mind, for some unsolved reason.
The final point above might be worth watching. It seems that the CIA can mimic Russian hacking attempts. Hmmm, can you think of a use they might have for that?
BBC 5Live has just told me that a CIA spokesman “has declined to comment”. Why so coy all of a sudden? CIA operatives have been singing like canaries for months. You can’t keep their tunes out of the NYT and their external newsletter, the WaPo.
Never mind, we’re learning all we need to know from great wikileaks.
The King James Bible offers the recognition that when one was a child one “spake” childish things and understood as a child until one became a man and put away childish things. Sadly there is no verse in Corinthians that would guide one not to tweet childish things. And if there were, would the President heed that advice?
A seventy year old billionaire who defied conventional wisdom and attained the highest office in the land is unlikely to mature suddenly. Following his own thoughts would seem to have worked for him. No advisor, no servant at his side during his triumph will whisper sufficient words of humility or caution in his ear.
He is who he is. Those who wait for a change will wait in vain. The daily recoil at his patently false assertions is beyond the point. Seeking clarification from underlings is a fool’s errand. He must be dealt with in a rational and tempered way. When he lies, as he clearly did about the former President tapping his residence, we can’t run around in circles and analyze the “meaning” or intent in endless news cycles. We must simply accept the fact that he lies, that a sigificant number of people are fooled by it or see it as acceptable, and treat him accordingly. Until we as a people are ready to put away childish things and vote him and his Administration out.
It’s being reported that IRA godfather Martin McGuinness is in a critical condition in hospital. I am sure this is very upsetting for his family. Lots of families have reason to feel upset however…
“Martin McGuinness has come under fire for telling an Oxford Union debate that he did not agree with condemnations of the IRA using a civilian worker as a ‘human bomb’ to murder five soldiers.
The Deputy First Minister also told the gathering that the IRA could “have killed thousands” on the streets of London and in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, if it had wanted, but that it had never deliberately targeted civilians. He said he did not agree with the view of Bishop Edward Daly that a bomb which killed Patsy Gillespie and five soldiers in 1990 was “the work of Satan”.
Mr Gillespie was blown to pieces.
I also feel sorry for this family.
The family of Frank Hegarty, shot in the head by the IRA for ‘informing’, have voiced their horror at the prospect of Martin McGuinness becoming President of Ireland.
The Hegartys, who haven’t spoken publicly about their brother for nearly two decades, last night broke their silence to insist that Mr McGuinness had lured Frank to his death.
They say Mr McGuinness inveigled his way into their family home with promises that Frank would not be harmed if he came home to Derry and met the IRA. Mr McGuinness is described as kneeling at the feet of Rose Hegarty, Frank’s mother, as he promised that Frank would not be harmed.
This is how his life ended.
Should McGuinness pass from this life, he will do so surrounded by his family. That’s more than the Gillespie or Hegarty family ever got.
Great to see KellyAnne calling Comey out…
FBI director James Comey sparked a backlash today as he called on the Justice Department to publicly refute President Trump’s claims that Obama ordered a wire-tap on Trump Towers prior to the election.
After the shocking allegation that Trump compared to the Watergate scandal on Saturday, presidential aide Kellyanne Conway challenged Comey to reveal what he knows about the explosive claims.
Her comments came after the release of a report claiming senior officials had said that Comey believed the claim was false and wanted it refuted as it falsely implicated the FBI. But Conway last night demanded that Comey speak on the record if he wants to discredit the president’s claim
The NYT (As anti-Trump as they come) made the claim based on “un-named sources” and so I think IF Comey really does think what is claimed he needs to come right out ON THE RECORD and say it. As far as I am concerned, Comey lost ALL credibility last year when his “investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s emails produced …nothing. Comey is part of the Deep State that Chuck Schumer talked about in late January -out to sabotage the President. The swamp needs drained.
Wonderful. This is fighting back…
Democrats’ (And their media allies) efforts to raise suspicions about alleged — and, thus far, imaginary — links between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government may have backfired spectacularly.
The spotlight is now on President Barack Obama and his administration’s alleged surveillance of the Trump campaign, as well as his aides’ reported efforts to spread damaging information about Trump throughout government agencies to facilitate later investigations and, possibly, leaks to the media.
On Sunday morning, the White House released a statement indicating that the president would ask the congressional committees investigating Russian hacking theories to add the question of “whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.”
Media outlets continued to repeat that the story was based on “no evidence,” though the evidence was plain.
We need to know who was tapping Trump Towers, where the information obtained was going to, who was reading it, who was aware of the content and we need to know now. Should this be traced to Obama then it will at least mean that Hillary Clinton will have a cell mate she is familiar with.
This is going to cause regressive leftist hysteria tomorrow;
President Donald Trump is expected to sign a revised executive order early next week banning travel from several Middle Eastern and African countries.
Oh no? 🙂
The president will sign the new executive order at the Department of Homeland Security as early as Monday, Politico reports. It is not clear what changes Trump plans to make to the revised travel ban. The Associated Press reported last week that the reboot will only apply to six nations – taking Iraq off the list because it is a close ally to the US in the fight against the ISIS terror army.
Good. The Democrat loyal activist Judiciary will be all over this, I suspect, and I believe that it will end up in the Supreme Court. The battle here is about whether the President can exert his will and implement the policies on which he was elected.
