Last #MAGA Thread of the Summer



DJIA loses 767 points, closing at 25,718. As I mentioned in the last #MAGA thread, unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump should have been touting his DJIA stats in July, in order to take advantage of last year's June Swoon, thus making his one-year performance look better.

He wasn't smart enough to do that.

His current 12-month rolling average return is a sparkling 0.847%.

Ah... here it is!


BREAKING NEWS
Stocks plunged nearly 3% as China sharply escalated the trade war with moves to weaponize its currency and limit U.S. agricultural products.

Monday, August 5, 2019 4:03 PM EST

The trade war between the United States and China entered a more dangerous phase on Monday, as Beijing allowed its currency to weaken, Chinese enterprises stopped making new purchases of American farm goods and President Trump indicated he would look for ways to retaliate.

I think we all do but the reality is that when you deregulate industries, especially financal industries; when you transfer wealth from the lower and middle classes to the upper class; and when you institute isolationist policies, the economy IS going to suffer.

My hope is that it suffers less rather than more, but there is just too much historical data that shows us the economic policies of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump are destined to cause economic hardship.

Republican economic policies are like crack cocaine - the high is great, but short-lived. The comedown is horrific and long-lasting.

This isn't news to anyone who follows the news, but today's news is that the best presidents for the stock market are............Democrats. Of course.

The DJIA is up 29% in the first 645 trading days of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump's first (and God help us, only) term. Almost all of that gain occurred in the first few months of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump's time in office. As faithful readers know, the rolling 1-year average for DJIA performance under unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump vacillates between 1% and almost 3%.

Abysmal.

But still - he had a great first year! Twenty-nine percent is 29%, any way you cut it. How does that compare to the past six presidents? Here are the numbers; link to story is at the end:

Ronald Reagan - 23%

George H. W. Bush - 36%

Bill Clinton - 29%

George W. Bush - (26%)

Barack Obama - 46%

Unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump would rank tied for third, with his old buddy Bill Clinton. However, after Clinton's tax hikes took effect, the DJIA really took off. Unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump has no chance of catching Clinton's entire first-term performance of a 79% increase.

Which reminds me - don't any of you "conservatives" trot out the old "It was the dot com bubble!!!1!1!1!!!" BS. It was NOT the dot com bubble that led to Clinton's robust economy. Here's a little tidbit per CNBC that will prove that out:

The best year the NASDAQ ever had during Clinton's presidency (and maybe ever) was 1998. Even in the best NASDAQ year ever, 75% of the companies traded on the NASDAQ closed lower on 12/31/98 than where they opened on 1/1/98.

Anyway, here's the link. It proves out what I always say - Democrats are far better for the economy than Republicans. In EVERY measure.

Good thing for unrepentant serial adulterer that analysis was done yesterday and not today.

DJIA currently down 632 points.

One-year rolling average for the DJIA under unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump is now a sterling 1.38%.

And that's just on recession worries. We haven't hit the actual recession yet. Hold on to your wigs, because we'll be in a recession before the 2020 election.

You may have noticed that I constantly refer to our president as an unrepentant serial adulterer. That's because he IS an unrepentant serial adulterer. Probably a rapist, too. And definitely guilty of many instances of unwanted sexual harrassment.

But I focus on the unrepented serial adultery because it's both provable and admitted to by the unrepentant serial adulterer in the White House. There's simply no argument about that.

I fell it's important because for some reason (MONEY! TAX CUTS!) most "Christians" knowingly voted for an unrepentant serial adulterer. In my Bible, the Ten Commandments are very clear, and there's no exception for adultery if "it happened a long time ago" or "it wasn't done in the Oval Office" or "everyone gets some mulligans".

Ever the optimist, I hope to convince Christians (as opposed to "Christians") that knowingly voting from someone who openly and proudly breaks the Ten Commandments without asking for redemption or forgiveness is an affront to God. ESPECIALLY when the candidate in question claims to be a "Christian" who lives a "Christian" life.

No, he doesn't. And my Christian friends should/will/do know this. What they have to understand is that by voting for unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump they are, in fact, condoning an activity specifically prohibited by God.

Probably not something you want to have to explain to God when you meet Him. I do not believe an explanation of "But I got a tax cut!" is going to hold much sway.

Most of you have doubted my tack, but recently two significant things have some to light:

(1) Christians are FINALLY getting mad at unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump, but not for his serial adultery. No, they are up in arms because he uses the Lord's name in vain - in public, all the time. And I mean the Big One - G** D***it. While I'm a little taken aback that THIS is the line that Christians are mad about unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump crossing, I'm glad they're mad about it. And of course, using the Lord's name in vain is a violation of the Ten Commandments, just as adultery is. So maybe, just maybe, we've got some actual Christians starting to realize that unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump doesn't regularly, knowingly and proudly violate one Commandment - he violates most of them on a regular basis. This, I hope, will lead these Christians to either stay at home on Election Day 2020; write in an actual Commandment-observing Christian for President; or vote for the Democratic nominee.

Here's an interesting article on the backlash of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump's use of the Lord's name in vain: https://www.politico.com/...ty-1456178


(West Virginia State Senator) Paul Hardesty didn’t pay much attention to President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., last month until a third concerned constituent rang his cellphone. <snip>

“I’ve had people come to me and say, ‘You know I voted for [Trump], but if he doesn’t tone down the rhetoric, I might just stay home this time,’” Hardesty said in an interview, adding that he has yet to hear back from anyone inside the White House after urging the president in a formal letter to “reflect on your comments and never utter those words (G** D***) again.” <snip>

“Carelessly invoking the Lord’s name in a fit of anger is one thing,” said one of the pro-Trump pastors, quickly adding he would not encourage such behavior. “But repeatedly doing it for shock value … that does raise questions about the president’s respect for people of faith.”

(2) There's a new book by conservative Christian author Ben Howe called "The Immoral Majority - Why Evangelicals Chose Political Power Over Christian Values". I saw Howe interviewed on "Morning Joe" yesterday and it was like I was watching myself! Howe hits the nail squarely on the head.

His book traces the rise of the "Moral Majority" through today, trying to answer the question of why Christians can elect so many candidates who clearly don't take Christianity seriously.

You might think it's because of abortion, but you'd be wrong. It's for the simplest of reasons:

Money.

It's time to get Christians voting like Christians again. And believe it or not, that means voting more often for the Democratic candidate than for the hypocritical Republican candidate.

The DJIA dropped 800 points today.

Here is a chart of the 10 biggest single-day point drops in DJIA history. Note who owns the top 5 biggest drops, and 7 out of the top 10:





TRUMP 1 2018-02-05 24,345.75 −1,175.21 −4.60 [15]
TRUMP 2 2018-02-08 23,860.46 −1,032.89 −4.15 [16]
TRUMP 3 2018-10-10 25,598.74 −831.83 −3.15 [17]
TRUMP 4 2019-08-14 25,479.42 −800.49 -3.05 [18]
TRUMP 5 2018-12-04 25,027.07 −799.36 −3.10 [19]
BUSH 6 2008-09-29 10,365.45 −777.68 −6.98 [20]
TRUMP 7 2019-08-05 25,717.74 -767.27 -2.90 [21]
BUSH 8 2008-10-15 8,577.91 −733.08 −7.87 [22]
TRUMP 9 2018-03-22 23,957.89 −724.42 −2.93 [23]
BUSH 10 2001-09-17 8,920.70 −684.81 −7.13



I guess when it comes to losing value in the stock market in a single day, unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump isn't an Apprentice; he's The Biggest Loser.

Note also that the entire Top 10 are Republicans.

Yeah, that's been one of the biggest and successful myths about the republican party and their alleged "fiscal responsibility."

-

Trump actually have most of his followers believing the economy was trash when he took office and things only got better once he took office. "I and I alone can fix it."

I don't even know where to begin with this one.

This story was posted on another thread. It's the story about the jackass in Montana who asked a 13-year-old boy to remove his hat during the national anthem. The boy responded in a vulgar manner, and this jackass grabbed the boy by the throat, lifted him in the air, and then dropped the boy on his head.

The boy has a fractured skull, was concussed, and was bleeding from his ears.

The jackass was arrested and his attorney said the jackass was influenced by the anti-athlete rhetoric of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump. By the way, this jackass already has one conviction of assault with a weapon, after he threatened to shoot three people during a traffic dispute in 2011. He's still on probation from that one.

Anyway, I thought for sure that the guy would plead guilty. He admitted what he did, knew he'd made a mistake, and seemed to accept that he and he alone was responsible for slamming the kid to the ground and breaking his skull.

I was wrong.

This jackass has pled not guilty.

I hope you're sitting down, because here is his reasoning, per his attorney:

This jackass - a veteran - is "uber patriotic" and felt that he'd been "given an order from (the) commander in chief to make sure people are patriotic".

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the results of the endless, shameless, pathetic ramblings of our unrepentant serial adulterer of a president. This is what his BS leads to.

Every actual veteran - here (if any) and otherwise - should disown this jackass.

Here's another story that is...hard to categorize.

Former Congressman Joe Walsh is a complete piece of trash. He has no redeeming qualities. He's the guy who yelled "You lie!" during President Obama's State of the Union speech. He's as far right-wing as you can get, unless your name is Steve King. He's a deadbeat dad who wouldn't pay his child support.

He's radical right-wing scum.

And he hates unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump.

In fact, he's sorry he ever supported unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump. Amazingly, he's sorry for all the right reasons. For instance, the breaking point for Walsh was when unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump kowtowed to Vladimir Putin and believed Putin over American intelligence services when it came to Russian interference in our elections.

He rightfully calls unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump a "con man". Walsh - a guy who blamed President Obama for the murder of Dallas police officers; a guy who's claimed President Obama is Muslim; a guy who's been kicked off the air for making racial sluts - now says:

(T)he election of Trump has made him realize "how ugly our side -- both sides can get -- but how ugly I've been. It's caused me to reflect, and no longer engage in personal attacks and just focus on the policy differences."

I guess?

When I first saw the article in Politico. I said, "Really?" After all he's said and done, you guys are just now getting offended? LOL. They're selective outrage is laughable and tepid at best. The hypocrisy is unbearable.



You call it hypocrisy, I call it progress!


Rodeo - I'm curious what you think about the Labor Department wanting to allow federal contractors to discriminate in hiring & firing people who don't share their "religious values"? I started a thread on it.

So why didn't anyone say anything to Trump for calling someone fat at his rally? All the people there and they did nothing.

It turned out the guy he called fat wasn't even the protester - that guy was actually a supporter of unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump.

Unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump called the mis-identified heavyweight but he got an answering machine. He left a message in which he never apologized; rather, he said he was talking about someone else.

Pure class!

Memo reveals a House Republican strategy on shootings: downplay white nationalism, blame left

The GOP memo falsely pinned the El Paso massacre and other notable mass shootings on the left.


https://www.tampabay.com/...lame-left/

Congressional Republicans recently circulated talking points on gun violence that falsely described the El Paso massacre and other mass shootings as “violence from the left.”

A document obtained by the Tampa Bay Times and sent by House Republicans provides a framework for how to respond to anticipated questions like, “Why won’t you pass legislation to close the ‘gun show loophole’ in federal law?” and “Why shouldn’t we ban high-capacity magazines?" The answers are boilerplate Republican arguments against tougher gun restrictions.

But it also included this question: “Do you believe white nationalism is driving more mass shootings recently?” The suggested response is to steer the conversation away from white nationalism to an argument that implies both sides are to blame

The repubs don't even want to attempt to solve the problem, it's all a blame game, while people and places are being shot up. sad

Republicans are especially trying to make the El Paso shooter a "lefty" because it's located on the border, and Mexican nationals are among the dead. Trump says "They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists."

Meanwhile, they are killed in a US border town by an admitted White Nationalist.

Exactly. It's all about scoring points rather than taking responsibility.

And the Right (especially Trump) doesn't want to attack White Nationalists because that is an essential part of their base- people who hold racist views

A broad assessment by some journalists is that the streets of Washington DC are flooded with money - more than ever before.

Politicians keep the status quo because they have no reason to really change anything. They stand up and rail against what the public is upset about with full awareness that they will leave things as they are.

WORST. PRESIDENT.EVER.



BREAKING NEWS

President Trump confirmed.... economy.

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 3:49 PM EST

Mr. Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House, continued to portray the economy as “incredible” and to play down any chance that the United States could enter into a recession. But many of the indicators that the administration has used to showcase a Trump-fueled economic “boom” have fizzled on the back of the president’s escalating trade fights.

What a bunch of sick, greedy, racist assholes the republican party has become.

Unrepentant serial adulterer Donald J. Trump spoke with NRA Executive Director Wayne LaPierre yesterday. Guess what the future of universal background checks is now?

Honestly, this is just incredible. Poll after poll after poll shows 90% or so of Americans are in favor of universal background checks. Ninety percent! That's almost everyone! About 60% of Republicans - Trump's base, mind you - are also in favor of them. It defies logic that, given those polling numbes, ANY politician of ANY party would be afraid to come out in favor of universal background checks because of the risk of losing voters.

And yet, here we are.

The NRA is simply buying the president. There is no other explanation.

KILL THE NRA AS AN ORGANIZATION.
