That was his "I'm not Obama" message
Considering Obama’s predilection for drone warfare, Trump at least rhymed with Obama.

Quote
The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently announced another historic month of job growth as the economy added 1.4 million jobs in August. It was the fourth-best month of job growth on record dating back to 1939 (and likely ever), beaten out only by the preceding three months.

As a result, the country’s unemployment rate dropped to 8.4 percent from its post-pandemic high of 14.7 percent. Recall that in April the Congressional Budget Office forecast a 16 percent unemployment rate for the third quarter.

By historical measures — by any measure, really — this is a remarkable resurgence. Based on recent data, the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s GDPNow forecasting model increased its prediction for third-quarter GDP growth to 30.8 percent. That would be the highest number on record dating back to 1947 (and, again, likely ever).

Of course, this is all on top of news about the Trump administration’s historic steps towards peace in the Middle East. First, it was the United Arab Emirates and Israel making peace. Then Serbia and Kosovo agreed to normalize economic relations with Kosovo (a mostly Muslim nation) recognizing Israel and Serbia moving its embassy to Jerusalem.

Then Bahrain and Israel agreed to normalize relations. Despite protestations from the Palestinians, the Arab League refused to condemn the Israel/UAE deal. Saudi Arabia agreed to let Israeli commercial aircraft fly over its territory.

As a result, the president received two nominations for a Nobel Peace Award.

More jobs, less war.

How can people be opposed to that?

Now it's true these are jobs returning from those lost because of the lockdowns but the economy was doing great before that.

If the House can be flipped maybe we could see more and higher tariffs and incentivize more companies to manufacture more things on this side of the tariff wall.

Get good paying manufacturing jobs coming back here with all the good things that would bring with.

I'd love to see re-shoring in such amounts as to cause a massive surge in hiring which would lead to a chronic labor shortage across all industries and skill-sets.

Once that happens employers have to beg for workers, workers won't have to beg for employment. And that means, in general, wages will constantly be on the rise.

With higher wages comes more purchasing power which leads to a more secure life.

And that results in a more stable society. As people, in general, who are less desperate do not resort to short-term thinking or act in unwise ways.

On top of that it would mean shorter supply chains, and that means more secure supply chains and that means less need to patrol the world. Which means less need to get involved in other places' issues. Part of this is energy independence, which means even more security. Which means an even more secure and stable society. It's like a virtuous cycle.

So yeah, Trump is the more jobs, less war candidate.

Given the last few presidents and the opposition from the deep state and their media allies it was quite an accomplishment to get elected once on that platform, and it looks like he's going to do it again.

There are a lot of people on both sides of the aisle and in the private sector opposed to that, although they would never say so out-loud.  Basically, the military industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about, and most Democrats.

The first half of this article.

The author, though, just can't let Trump's policies be the cause.

I don't think they understand that if I were on the fence, this would actually sway me to vote for Trump.

Ordering in for malts during a classified briefing is a thumbs up.  :laugh:

Trump has been releasing the raw footage of his 60 Minutes interview, and CBS is furious, stating that it is detrimental to their fair and balanced reporting. They are not getting the sympathy they were looking for.  :laugh:

As one of the comments said, raw footage should always be available of any interview.

If he released it before it aired, that's bad form and he probably violated their contract.  (but he's a lot better at playing dirty than I am and I can't fault him too much for not being totally fair with an enemy.)  If he released it at the same time or immediately after broadcast, then good for him.

This is awesome. Yes I'm generalizing, but in general, the policymaking fed.gov workers I interacted with were the worst. All they cared about was passing new regulations, making stuff I like to do illegal, and creating and enforcing large and ridiculous fines for stuff.

Trump exposed the truth of the mainstream media/news and destroyed their credibility. 
For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

I'm mostly just marveling at how Trump is still living rent free inside of the haters' heads...
 
Well, no... Because there HAS to be something to hate, and he's still convenient.
 
And they haven't started the pogroms against the flyover untouchables yet.
 
Yet.

I do have to wonder how much of his protective unit is Secret Service, and how much is privately funded...
 
If I was him, I'd be throwing major cash toward someone, because the crazy (at least still in my neighborhood) is still way out there.

Trump's greatest accomplishment was providing a focus for the hatred which emanates from the progressive socialists.

Are you really that happy to see the DOJ, FBI and CIA weaponized by the democrats and used against their political opponents?

Your support for third world/Soviet style politics is really kind of sad, and disgusting.
But hey, so long as the guy you don't like is the one getting screwed by the guys you support then no worries.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
