Trump Economic Boom, plummeting Unemployment Rates, Capitalism Benefits vs.Mainstream Media Censorship Blackout
In any other climate, in any other atmosphere, this would be leading every cable newscast, and everybody would be happy about it, because this is restoring America’s wealth. Exactly one of the many things Trump said that he was gonna do. Make America rich again, “Make America Great Again.” You know the refrain. He talked endlessly of restoring America’s wealth, and here it is happening. This is the story of the decade.
“It just isn’t done!”
That seems to be a never-ending refrain for everybody in the Washington establishment talking about Trump: “It just isn’t done! We just don’t do it this way.” So that’s all they’ve got is to suggest here that Trump has broken the law or has violated a sacrosanct convention. But no matter how hard they try, they cannot drown out or obliterate the news. The United States added 223,000 jobs in May, beating expectations. The so-called experts were forecasting in the high 180,000s. Jobs were added all across the employment sector.
Manufacturing added 18,000 jobs.
They’re coming back, and they are roaring back. You know what else? Retail jobs: 31,000 new retail jobs. Everybody’s out there talking about how retail is dying because of the internet. Well, 31,000 retail jobs. Construction grew by 25,000 new jobs. The mining sector — which both Obama and Hillary promised to put out of business.
There are 6,000 new jobs in the mining sector. The service sector of our economy, service providers: 171,000 new jobs in May. Unemployment, 3.8%. That’s the lowest since George W. Bush was in… Actually, it’s early 2000. Bush assumed office in early 2001, and he had– in the early days of his administration — a low unemployment rate. Then 9/11 happened, and bottom fell out. But that’s how far you have to go back. You have to go back 18, 19 years to find unemployment this low, 3.8%. I have to tell you, this is considered statistically full employment.
And what that means is that when you get 3.8% of the people unemployed, those are the people that maybe don’t want to work or unemployable because it’s not logical to think that everybody in America could have a job. Unless, of course, you work for Bernie Sanders, who wants to have the federal government hire everybody.
Oh! And speaking of that. Donald Trump has cut the federal payroll by 24,000 jobs. That is another branch of draining the swamp that he is succeeding at.
But the point is we’re seeing a lot of excitement for historic improvements in minority unemployment numbers. The unemployment rate for men over 16 is 3.9%! Guess what it is for women, another group Republicans supposedly hate. It’s 3.6%.
I haven’t seen conservative men complaining about that, either. I haven’t seen any conservatives complaining about any of the good news on jobs for African-Americans, minorities, and women! Yet we’re sexist bigots, right?
Barack Obama… The date of this is June 1st, 2016.
RUSH: Okay. Listen to this. Obama, Indiana, June 1st, PBS special, questions for Obama. “What about the jobs we’ve lost? Are they coming back, Mr. President?”
OBAMA: And so what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are comin’ in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not gonna come back. And when somebody says — like the person you just mentioned who I’m not gonna advertise for — that he’s gonna bring all these jobs back? Well, how exactly are y’gonna do that? What’re you gonna do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, “I’m gonna negotiate a better deal.” (stammering) Well, how…? What…? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he duh’n’t have’n answer.
RUSH: Yes, he does: Capitalism and the American people — 18,000 manufacturing jobs back. He has an answer. He’s always had the answer. It’s called capitalism and faith in the American people!
“It’s just not done this way!”
RUSH: “You’re not supposed to pardon people until you’re about to leave office! This just isn’t done this way!” It could be one of the identifiers of the Trump administration: “It’s just not done this way!” You mean like reviving the economy, bringing back jobs, restoring America’s wealth and place in the world? Now, I have to tell you, there is nowhere you can go today anywhere in the Drive-By Media to get even 10% of what I just told you in the way I presented it.
They’re gonna ignore this.
