Get Ready for Another Trump Bump

by | Jun 7, 2020 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The opposition to US President Donald J Trump has plagued his entire first term in office.
Despite being attacked by both the mainstream media and the Washington establishment, Trump has managed to rein in rogue states like North Korea and Iran, end a 20-year old war in the Middle East, redefine the bilateral economic relationships with every major country the US does business with, brokered an oil war solution with the Russians and Saudis, and in the latter half of 2019, started to see the US move on a path to the best unemployment and economic growth potential it has ever seen. ALL THIS WHILE CONGRESS WAS TRYING TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP.
With great enthusiasm, Trump’s political foes embraced the external shock to the US economy⏤as the novel SARS-CoV2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19 came on the scene in the first half of 2020, it was like a party celebrating a ‘god’.

Finally, ’the gods’ struck that nasty Trump fellow with a bolt of lightning from which even he surely could not ever recover from.

But I am not so sure “The Donald” should be counted out. He is like a cat with nine lives. Indeed, looking at the economy objectively, the fundamentals that President Trump has put into place since taking office are showing that his administration is no paper tiger. To me anyway, it is looking to be more of a mighty lion that took a nap in the spring. It may very well be positioned as a more powerful coiled spring that could take the US economy to new heights in the latter half of 2020.
The stock market’s growing confidence in the economy is such that the major US indexes are, at this moment, at around the same levels they were a year ago. It is true that we have erased the 2019 Trump Bump that took place in the latter half of last year. However, it is also true that we have erased the panic driven COVID-19 nosedive of the first half of 2020. That means, as the economy re-opens, the fundamental path of recovery favors a return to the broader agenda of Donald Trump.

Those fundamental forces have been strong despite COVID-19. It is amazing how much business is still going on despite the media’s doom and gloom impression that the coronavirus has shut down the economy. Essential industries never slowed down. We even put Americans into space from US soil in the middle of it; and unfurled the flag of a new Space Force that will have a “super duper” missile.

Some might argue that companies may have improved their operating efficiencies, discovering which workers were essential and which were not, with attendant cost savings to their bottom lines.

The tactic is a favorite method of managing the reporting optics of companies. The coronavirus made it mandatory for companies to execute staffing changes they probably would not have.
It has changed a fair portion of the definition of the American workplace. The economy is clearly adapting to new forms of work. Workers with jobs that could be done remotely are doing so. Their companies remain functional. The conversion has gone smoother than people thought. The process is working so well, that many companies are looking at letting more workers do so permanently. Some will undoubtedly find that they don’t need nearly the same office space, and cost, as they did prior to the so-called “new normal”.
Some businesses are discovering they can rotate workers trading off part time work hours versus permanent layoffs, thus retaining access to employee skills and corporate memory at lower cost. The four-day workweek and job function team sharing workforce designs that theorists have examined academically are being realized.
Some are also rotating employees between being employed and unemployed to balance their businesses. They are using the unemployment insurance system to buffer the impact on their staffs. This is not an unknown pattern in some countries where people sometimes do work for half a year and go on the dole the other half.
Culturally, the next American social challenge may well be, what will people do with the rest of their time as the “new normal” becomes the norm? Regardless, it means a new American society is emerging. And it is emerging during President Trump’s administration. Any upside to this realignment to the economy will credit his watch.
When you add the fact that post-COVID-19⏤the world will embark on a massive exercise to realign the manufacturing and supply chain matrix of the global economy plus the reality that whether the Chinese like us or not, their need for agricultural goods from the United States isn’t going away, there are certainly fundamental forces at work that will demand the US economy expand to fill the available space.
Never count the US economy out! It is resilient, adaptive, and has proven to shrug off crises time and time again.

RINOs and America Firsters Wage War over GOP Control

RINOs and America Firsters Wage War over GOP Control

RINOs want to do what RINOs do best: avoid conflict, cower, surrender, and attack fellow Patriots at the expense of the Party. America has only one option to win this war against Communism that we are perilously close to losing. It’s time to stand up and fight. If RINOs can’t stomach the final battle America Firsters are about to wage, the RNC will have a choice to make…

The AMA’s Misinformation Media Campaign on Ivermectin is Harming Americans

The AMA’s Misinformation Media Campaign on Ivermectin is Harming Americans

After Dr. McCullough’s public statement with Dan Ball, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons came out with a letter directly to the American Medical Association calling out their irresponsible statements to Americans. The AMA does not produce evidence reviews of guidelines panels, and thus is far beyond the guardrails of their mission in trying to…

Organized Scientific Fraud: SARS-CoV-2 is an Unrestricted Bioweapon

Organized Scientific Fraud: SARS-CoV-2 is an Unrestricted Bioweapon

SARS2 is not a traditional bioweapon. It’s a product of CCP’s long-term strategy. It generates more damage but is more hidden. The principle is “looks like natural occurring,” and the best way to recognize it from the lab is that it’s inconsistent with nature evolution principles. Using misinformation and lies to drive people’s attention and waste time is another…

America May Never Build Another New Nuclear Power Plant Because Of This Fraud

The purpose of his work is to save thousands of lives, through more widespread use of radiation therapy, and to save billions of dollars needlessly trying to protect us from insignificant radiation that not only isn’t harmful, but in fact, is helpful. The lack of ethics in science has grown to the detriment of all science. In this case, the ramifications have had deadly consequences…

Vulture Nations Circling the United States

Here is what we know about bullies, whether in the schoolyard or internationally: when you don’t fight back, they get even more aggressive. Think of England’s Neville Chamberlain giving up Czechoslovakia to Hitler to achieve what he called “peace in our time.” What did Hitler do? Invade Poland. When you stand up to bullies, they back down…

Mask and Vaccine Mandates to Eviction Moratoria: A Right to Due Process

Due Process is being violated almost every day at some level within the United States. From mask and vaccine mandates to eviction moratoria, from lockdowns to declarations of “essential businesses”, these are deprivations of either liberty or property without due process of law. Healthcare laws, vehicle standards, even the political primaries, are designed to deprive you of your life, liberty, or property…

The War Between Nationalists and Globalists

The War Between Nationalists and Globalists

While the Globalists are intertwining all aspects of human activity – nothing will work without the other, the media divides the narrative into sound bites so you will never see the connection. By calling Americans “domestic terrorists,” the FBI can collaborate with the CIA, DHS, etc., to dream up cases against Americans who do not follow the hate America narrative…

Vaccine Report Card From CDC/FDA is Long Overdue!

Vaccine Report Card From CDC/FDA is Long Overdue!

The CDC/FDA holds all the data on differential efficacy of the vaccines and at 8 months into the public program, the agency’s vaccine report card to America is long overdue. Americans are frustrated with the lack of transparency and want to make the most efficacious choice of vaccines and seek to understand how to take a shot and avoid the disastrous safety events of neurologic damage, myocarditis, blood clots, and paralysis…
