    To all my conservative patriots on this blog …

    Thank you for speaking out and sharing your views. I know now that the values of my parents are alive and well with each of you. I am not alone.

    We have to FIGHT like hell for our nation or the treasonous lefties will destroy us forever. We are the last beacon of hope for freedom and democracy for the world. If the left has their way they will take away our rights, money, freedom, and reduce this country to a European state.

    It’s time we organize like the left and and stop this crazy thing from getting any worse. And for Donald Trump, My president, I have been a lax Christian but I never lost my faith. I know that you were a gift from God.

    I wouldn’t want your job because it must take incredible strength and courage to get up every day and tackle the garbage thrown at you by the very people you’re trying to protect and help. Know that there are people like us on this blog who have your back. Even if it means my life.

    Funny, I just saw an article that said “Economist credit OBAMA for the booming economy.” Lol.

    Since the big “O” claimed to be a Christian isn’t he under a death sentence for switching from his Muslim faith?
    Didn’t the commie libs make a big deal out of it when da Big “O” bought a seven million dollar home in Hawaii? What I want to know is why hasn’t the commie BHO moved to Hawaii and remains in DC? I believe he is the first former prez to remain in DC. Gee is the jerk staying in DC to ferment trouble like a good for nothing left wing commie idiot?

    I voted for President Trump because I wanted to see what a shrewd businessman would do to fix our country applying his pragmatism instead of being led by any ideology. It proved to be fantastic. This year this economy is going to reach unprecedented levels where unemployment will continue to lower even more. With jobs so plentiful salaries will unavoidable rise because companies will compete to hire the best employees.
    Medical insurance will be fixed, our military will be second to none, illegal immigration under control and freedom protected from our worst enemies: the liberal wing of the democratic party with its hidden boss: Georg Soros, the hungarian totalitarian.

  5. Great country we live in. Be a great thing if the people who live here had that same thought. Yeah, I know. I’m dreaming again. Gotta stop doing that.

  6. Lot of good stuff here this evening, but I have an early day tomorrow with our small business. But it seems to me at least, that things are going well. We finally have a good leader. I sleep well. Catch you on the backside.

    Good news:

    Apple announces plans to repatriate billions in overseas cash

    On the heels of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’s passage into law, CNBC reports
    that Apple will contribute $350 billion back to the U.S. economy.

    “[The company] said it expects to pay about $38 billion in taxes for the
    horde of cash it plans to bring back to the United States. This implies it will
    repatriate virtually all of its $250 billion in overseas cash,” Anita
    Balakrishnan of CNBC writes. “Apple also said it will spend over $30 billion in
    capital expenditures over the next five years.”

    • This simply can’t be true. When Trump said this would happen, all the Liberals said it was just a joke. Seems Apple doesn’t thnk so. What a surprise.

      • Deplorable Dirty Harry | January 17, 2018 at 6:25 pm |

        yeah bet the EU fat cats are worried along with China.
        Apple was their cash cow

  8. You simply cannot ignore what the man has done in his first year as President of this great nation. I mean, I read all of the comments. The Liberals hate him. That’s a good thing, by the way.

    The rest of us simply love him for all that he has done for this country in his first year as President. What a leader. He still has seven years left. The man will change the direction of this nation. God bless him as he moves forward in his quest to Make America Great Again.

    Looking at what he has done so far, I think the man maybe has a pretty good handle on it. You think?

    • DefendTheFaith | January 17, 2018 at 5:58 pm |

      One thing is for sure; Trump has shown by results that Obama was the JV team.
      It’s warms my soul to think of all the liberals whose days are ruined by the actual reality of PRESIDENT Trump!
      How are your 401(k)s doing? Not too bad, right?
      Trump created 2.2 million new jobs, factories are coming back to our country. All in less than one year.
      Consumer confidence is at a 17-year high — think of that. LOL
      3 stooges would be Carter, Clinton and Obama.
      It sure is great to have a president who loves his country and wants to make it stronger.

  9. Where are all the Commie trolls who claim the booming economy is Obama’s legacy?

    Nowhere to be seen aye? .. That’s what I thought ! !

  10. Ya’ll preaching to the choir here. You need to take the message to the mainstream media.

  11. Tyrone Jackson | January 17, 2018 at 5:53 am |

    Yet another positive Trump story that will get little in any attention by the lame stream media.
    .

  12. Gee, it almost looks like he knows what he’s doing!

  13. When it was announced that Donald Trump was going to be the next president. People and companies that had been sitting on there cash since 2008. Because they were afraid to invest due to uncertainty in the markets. Opened up the cash box and began investing again

  14. Myron Huddleston | January 17, 2018 at 12:48 am |

    Democrats would have you believe that President Trump is a hated and vile man … From what I’m reading here I’m glad to find that to be untrue . .

    • A few things to always remember about Democrats. They hate jobs, they want the economy to tank, they want high gas prices, and they hate freedom.

      • Vera Orsova | January 17, 2018 at 5:13 pm |

        To sum it up, dems hate Americans. Americans, for most part, are independent thinkers and they can see through the lefties BS. Americans are also hard working people, so no freebees can buy their votes. Hence, libturds hate booming economy.

      • Kenneth G Enochs | January 18, 2018 at 6:41 am |

        I agree in part, the Democrats talk about jobs and the economy but that’s it! They court those in need and state that they are your advocate. They pander to them through Government programs. In a way they secure this base by supplying needs. Their platform is based on hatred, lies and deception. I remember Trump stating on one of his early campaigns to Black America, what have they done you? What have you got to loose voting for me.Apparently many thought about that and reacted accordingly. The market is on fire, the Democrats and pants are on fire

  15. Wait, this can’t be right. Everyone said the economy would collapse and the stock market would tank under a Trump presidency. Why would our betters in academia and the media say such things? ;^)

  16. Sportsmadness | January 16, 2018 at 9:29 pm |

    Wow we might even become an industrial giant again.

  17. You can shut down the government but you can’t shut down the people’s President or the people! MAGA; Winning!

  18. Varangian Guard | January 16, 2018 at 5:50 pm |

    The most significant loss to the stock market was caused by unverified news being broadcast. The market blipped over 26K!!

    Thank you “0” for setting such a low bar to pass so the new administration could crush it quickly and continue to crush it.

    I was planning on converting 401K savings into scratch off lottery tickets if HRC got in office. I would have a better chance at having ANYTHING to retire on with that then living with what atrocities she had planned for our hard EARNED money. The broad spectrum raping of working Americans via their tax contributions would have funded enormous numbers of new undocumented voters pouring into the unprotected and understaffed borders.

  19. "I'm a Rooster!" | January 16, 2018 at 2:36 pm |

    I’ve always said; “this great country needs a great business leader to make it prosperous”
    And, we’ve finally got one! MAGA!

  20. DefendTheFaith | January 16, 2018 at 1:58 pm |

    Liberals or Democrats are like spoiled little children full of carnality needin’ a good butt whippin’ LOL. It warms my soul to think of all the liberals whose days are ruined by the reality of PRESIDENT Trump!

  21. And in additional news, the President just had his physical and mental exam and he’s doing A-Okay. No dementia Libs! Now what?

  22. It was a very common sense approach: pro-business environment, competitive corporate tax rates, middle class tax relief, eliminating job killing over-regulation, energy independence, and putting America first for every legislative decision. Trump has been harping on this consistently for decades. So glad that we now have a strong, workaholic, driven, smart, caring president. My 401K is doing extremely well and I am investing more cash into the S&P 500, because all signals indicate a tremendous era of economic growth under Donald Trump. Another side effect is that a vibrant US economy will give us even more leverage when renegotiating unfair trade deals. Obama’s decisions always had disastrous unintended consequences. Trump’s unintended consequences are things like companies giving bonuses and pay raises, drop in illegal border crossings, unemployment benefit applications at a 44 year low, doubling of black support for Trump since the election, ISIS crushed in less than a year, Iran near secular revolution, and North Korea starting talks. Amazing!

  23. President Trump has reset the bar, forevermore, of what will be expected from our future leaders.

    • I will never erase from my mind the photo of Barrack Hussein Obama with his feet up on the priceless heirloom desk with the desk completely clear . . . hands behind his head like he was King of the World! In comparison, our President has stacks of files that he works on daily doing the work of the American People! I love our President!

      • Love you and your comment! May God Bless!

      • James Gatto | January 17, 2018 at 3:36 am |

        Obama? Just a street corner dirtbag with no respect for anyone or anything. Glad that idiot’s gone.

      • Varangian Guard | January 17, 2018 at 5:30 pm |

        Keep in mind that “0” had an Islamic educational influence regardless of what he states is his preferred choice of worship.

        In Islamic culture the significance of showing the bottom of one’s feet to another is an exhibition of disrespect to those that are shown that. Couple that with the display of the foot bottoms AND having them parked on that desk is a statement few realized he was making.

        Many just thought he was rude for having feet on the furniture but they did not realize he was telling the viewing Americans that he sees himself “above them” and they “below his feet” in fact.

        The progressives in the MSM either ignored the act or explained away he was “comfortable” in his new position. They still fail to realize that his position was not to level the world by elevating poor countries, but by the lazy man’s method of LOWERING those countries he found distasteful to him and his father. Read some of his written work, he has never been a fan of the USA, his wife (husband…whatever) stated she was never proud to say she was an American until he was portraying his ultimate deception.

        “0” is dangerous to the USA in his position of citizen president. He is attempting to quietly arm a revolution. Don’t let your eyes off of what he says or does in the coming year.

        In the mean time the USA is winning, tell your friends and political opponents.

        I read a story that Obama hated being a lawyer, that it was too much work and long hours. I learned that he was passed over by prestigious law firms which is unusual given he was a Harvard graduate. So…. what was it? bad grades? reputation for being a privileged person of color? arrogance that he was too good for hard work?

        This guy wasted trillions of dollars of our tax money – MY MONEY, YOUR MONEY. Instead he doubled the amount of foreign aid to AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST

        • Living in the Times | January 18, 2018 at 12:44 pm |

          Are you aware of his $100 million dollar vacation bill we are still paying for??? $100 MILLION…for eight years of vacations. They need to cap Presidential vacation travel budgets for ALL Presidents. That is ridiculous too spend that much money on vacations when this country is buried in a huge national deficit.

    • …and he’s just getting started, seven more years, grinning!

  24. Living in the Times | January 16, 2018 at 11:48 am |

    Of course he deserves the credit. Who else would it go to the anti American democrats??? President Trump has endured a year of bashing, trashing and juvenile rejection from the left just to rise above and accomplish more in 1 year than Oblama did in 8. Good job Mr. Trump!!!!!

    • Tyrone Jackson | January 17, 2018 at 5:55 am |

      Obama “accomplishments” were not designed to benefit our country, in my opinion, Obama views himself as an Internationalist and not an American.
      .
      It’s amazing having a president that loves our country after 8 long years with Obama bashing and apologizing for our country’s existence.
      .

  25. WINNING.

  26. Let’s see. A tax cut which puts more money in the hands of consumers which increases demand.
    Eliminating gov’t regulation making production less expensive
    Increased exploitation of oil resources making energy cheaper and production less expensive
    Encouraged repatriating of offshore cash increasing gov’t tax windfall and more demand in US
    Demonstrating a business/capitalism friendly attitude to companies, employees, and consumers
    C’mon! This is Macroeconomics 101. Of course this program w/b good for any economy Go Trump!!!

  27. Well duh! They are such geniuses.

  28. Vera Orsova | January 16, 2018 at 9:15 am |

    Unbelievable. A President who does what he promised to do. Must be because he is not a politician. MAGA, President Trump. Thank you for your hard work.
