Has Trump Set Up An Economic Boom?

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 19:54:39 +0000

(Steven Hayward) We’ve seen already the news of the growing number of companies citing the corporate tax cut as the trigger to give bonuses, raises, and announcements of significant new domestic capital investment, which is ruining the Democrats’ day. Wait till they get a load of this news, from the Wall Street Journal this morning: Less-Educated Workers See Biggest Weekly Pay Bumps Americans with only a high-school diploma are seeing faster earnings

Shutdowns then and now

(Scott Johnson) To have any idea of the deeply sinister weirdness of the Trump/Russia collusion illusion peddled by Madam Hillary and her loyal servitors, one has to read the available documents. The Rosetta Stone of the case in which we have now been enmeshed for a year, with no end in sight, is the so-called Trump/Steele dossier. Produced by Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton presidential campaign, the dossier is
