PDT day 1000

I have seen this marker nowhere else but at Gateway Pundit: After First 1,000 Days in Office President Trump Holds 50% Approval Rating — 5 POINTS HIGHER THAN OBAMA – Despite Impeachment Scam!. This related article goes through just how exceptional these thousand days have been. I will stick to the charts but you really should read the article.

This is how the article ends and while I would like to say, “who could disagree?” there are many who do disagree, whose lack of sense and proportion is astonishing.

President Trump charges forward in spite of liberal and Deep State harassment. His results have been down right miraculous.

Overall President Trump’s first 1,000 days in office were outstanding. He was attacked from all sides and stood tall and to his principles. America is stronger and greater than ever before. The economy is growing and the world is safer. President Trump is doing all he can to Make America Great Again!

    Well done that man. We will likely need an other as well.

    One man.
    The story really is how pathetic are the rest of the right wing players.

    We know the Liberal party are corrupt socialists here in Australia, and Sco Mo the water boy for the UN, is no Trump, so we should be making as much hay as we can while the Trump sun shines, (but we aren’t) for once he is gone, it will truly be darkness.
    Darkness with a vengeance.
    Presidents have set time frames and we all seem to think tomorrow is a long way away.

    Fight hard and fight now.

    President Mike Pence will be just 65 years old when he is sworn in in January 2025.

    Bazinga… Who indeed?
    I have pondered that myself, and I have no answer. There are outstanding Republican Senators and Congressmen, but none are anywhere near Trump-like.
    Another outsider like Trump? Maybe, but I don’t see one. Mind you, like 99.99% of everyone else, and 100% of the dimwit CNN talkers, I did not see Trump either.
    Trump has four years to go, plus what’s left of this term. After that, the USA may well have a Democrat President – even Elizabeth Warren – and all Trumps eight years of work, can go down the drain in a few weeks, or days.
    It’s a terrible way to run a Country. Just happens to be better then anything else.

    I was a never trumper as I didn’t like the tarrifs or his style. After 1000 days it’s absolutely clear he was the right choice. He isn’t perfect, but then again nobody is. Get government out of the way and let the market work and just look what happens.

    I think student loan debt is a big issue in the States, but why else would anyone vote for a socialist? And why are Wall St and Big Tech donating to these Democrats?

  11. Who’s Trump mentoring for 2024?

    He may not be ready yet, but if you’ve been watching and listening to Dan Crenshaw, he’s about as straight shooting and down to earth as Trump. And he seems to be very much liked by Republican voters.

    50% approval rate yet 51% want to see him impeached? Strange! Let me guess – all the other polls have Trump’s approval rate down in the low 40’s…

    I’m not sure what the debt and dow jones graphs are meant to prove. It looks like US debt continues to climb (as does the US budget deficit) – hardly something for fiscal conservatives to applaud.

    He is doing a great job and the warmth from his supporters is enduring and simply amazing. In fact, the Trump years are a part of history that we could be considered lucky to see happening unfold as we have.

    Not to be bleak though, but never count your chickens . Did anyone really think he would win in 2016? which means if you think the Dems could never win next year, well you could be wrong.

    That’s an impressing stock market performance since Dec 2016.
    The Dow Jones index has doubled since just before the GFC and most of that net rise has been post 2016, while over the same period the ASX 200 has only just recovered to the pre-GFC peak and most of the G20 countries are the same.
    In the case it’s reasonable to assume that correlation = causation.

    Meanwhile, if you get your news from the MSM, all you know is that Trump has initiated a bloody war in the usually peaceful Middle East by moving c. 1000 American troops from point A to point B.

  25. Colonel Crispin Berka

    Yeah, so, about all this Trump mania, is it the new Tulip mania?
    People make analogies between Trump and Hoover on their policies, politics, personality, effect their presidencies had on the market, etc. This forms the justification for arguing that the fate that befell the nation during Hoover will happen again because of Trump; i.e. a major depression.

    My understanding is that economic depressions result from overallocation of factors of production to activities that have no long term value, meaning that at some point contracts have to be broken, people have to be laid off, and deflationary spiral begins. If that’s true, the only way Trump could provoke a Depression is by pushing companies into projects that cannot be sustained, due to mania in demand or due to production relying on special exemptions and policies that will disappear after he is gone from office.
    Considering all the “deals” he did to get manufacturers back to the USA, plus the tariffs and other protectionist policies he’s pursued under the banner of “America First”, surely the longer term risk is exactly one of sovereign risk and breaks in regulation that could trigger “market corrections”.

    What do Cats think of the chances of a Trump Recession or even a Trump-triggered Depression when the Dow Jones’ Trump Mania wears off? (granted this may be 6 years away from happening)

  26. Watch the Schiff video. He’s done good but the macro fundamentals are going to make his run harder than you may have expected.

  27. Meanwhile, if you get your news from the MSM, all you know is that Trump has initiated a bloody war in the usually peaceful Middle East by moving c. 1000 American troops from point A to point B.

    Yeah, just imagine if he’d doubled the troops. He’d be instantly labelled a war monger conflating tensions with Turkey, Syria, Russia and the EU. Another reason for impeachment.

  28. sfw

    Trump shouldn’t take credit for the Dow etc, the problem is that it will go down again and if you claim to own the high, then the lows will be blamed on you as well. The main concern I have re Trump is his desire for ever lower interest rates. I don’t know if he really believes that low, low rates are good, or that he’s trying to stretch out the current high until Nov next year.

    That said, he’s a legend, I cannot think of any other politician in a democracy who could withstand the heat he gets from all sides. Boris Johnson can but at heart he worries me, deep down he’s a high migration, elite values skewed pollie. He’s shown great courage with Brexit but aside from that he’ll be a business as usual pollie.

  29. Bad Samaritan

    struth (1.15pm) We’ve had our Trump. He was John Howard.

    Did he not confront the entire Aboriginal Industry and all their leftist luvvie hangers-on at the “Stolen Generation” fiasco shindig…and then close ATSIC for good measure? Did he not confront the entire union Movement and all their leftist luvvie hangers-on whilst obliterating them in the Patrick dispute? Did he not stop the Tampa and send the SAS (FFS!) to make it clear that leftist luvvies could F Off? And likewise tell the Indos similar in East Timor? And so on….

    All the while crushing labor’s accumulated debt while building a war-chest of $50 billion plus. All the while refusing to consider giving the middle class or business more back then they put in. ie No welfare!

    Unfortunately the Aussie system allows no Prime Ministerial Decrees; No PM’s Executive Orders. Howard was a Westminster-system-Trump; the best you can hope for, I’m afraid.

    50% approval rate yet 51% want to see him impeached? Strange!

    Many hard core Trumpsters have been daring Pelosi to impeach Trump because they believe that will almost guarantee a win for him in 2020.
    It’s not hard to imagine a number of respondents who favour Trump saying they’d like to see him impeached in the house.
    That, plus the Dem +8 and Dem +14 in the samples.

    Regarding interest rates that Trump wants lowered.
    First, his desire for lower rates is tied to his economic war against China.
    Second, this is a global economy where everyone is competing for capital, both those who borrow and those who lend. Comparison rates are just as important as actual rates.
    Trump’s argument is that capital should be the cheapest where the risk is the lowest, and he sees the USA as the lowest risk in the World at the moment.
    He has an arguable point.

  31. FelixKruell

    Baa:

    It’s not hard to imagine a number of respondents who favour Trump saying they’d like to see him impeached in the house.

    I think that’s a bit fanciful. But that’s neither here nor there.

    Either way, his approval rating clearly isn’t 50%…

  32. Roger

    We’ve had our Trump. He was John Howard.

    The John Howard who initiated the immigration ponzi scheme while introducing the capital gains tax concession, rendering home ownership out of reach of countless working Australians who in previous generations would have waltzed it in (yes, state and local governments slow to release land and ease red tape merit a shout out in this regard), who committed Australian troops to an open ended, never ending war in Afghanistan – not to mention the second Iraq war – and who confiscated firearms from law abiding Australians ona very dubious basis, and introduced the GST and the middle class family pament welfare churn, who succumbed to the UN on Kyoto by limiting farmers’ rights to clear their own land for productive use.

    I could go on.

    This was our Trump?

  33. Tel

    Trump’s argument is that capital should be the cheapest where the risk is the lowest, and he sees the USA as the lowest risk in the World at the moment.
    He has an arguable point.

    If you compare the USA against Australia then Trump has an excellent point … Australia is much higher risk than the USA and we have ridiculously low central bank rates.

    But that’s not an argument to be blasting at the Fed, because the RBA are the ones who are messing it up. The RBA low rates are nothing more than a way to obliterate the value of the AUD and drive older Australians into poverty by eviscerating their savings.

    Indeed, Roger.

    I think the only “Trump” we’ve ever had was actually Gough Whitlam – but in the bad way.

    Schiff:

    We’ve never seen anything like this. Not even under Obama

    Frank, I like Schiff but you must remember that he puts too much egg into the pudding. Let’s look at his “dollar crash” scenario … ok I get it about rates being too low too long, bubble economy, blah blah but let’s systematically go through the possible reference points and compare with the USD. Dollar crash relative to what, exactly?

    * USD relative to EUR … look at European interest rates! Whatever bad shit you want to blame on the Fed, the ECB are much worse, and they can barely keep their EU together at all.

    * USD relative to JPY … if low interest rates are bad the Japan is in a terrible situation. They have had decades of rates at almost zero.

    * USD relative to Gold bars … sure, Gold always wins (slowly) in the long run because the central banks are promising to deliver inflation … but it might be the very long run and anyway in the meantime you pay capital gains tax and storage costs and whatever else.

    * USD relative to real-estate i.e. land … maybe you win, maybe not depends on what you own and where because land is a bit like gold in this respect. In the long run you get ahead, but you might not be able to wait long enough.

    The big surges of private debt growth that we saw around 2000 and again around 2006 have NOT been repeated after 2010 … the pattern is quite different … we are living through a stretched out version of the 1990’s recession.

    Schiff is building up a Maginot Line in preparation for fighting the previous war.

    The Peak of Moral Righteousness and Self-Congratulations has too much pull, Struth. The problem is, once you get there, it is never like the brochure promised. For a start, it is so crowded, all you can put down to anchor yourself with are two toes on each foot. The view is also bitterly disappointing, for the PoMR is far higher in elevation than anyone realised – to cope with the competition, every competitor brought along pockets of dirt, so the peak itself slowly grew taller – so high, in fact, that nothing at all can be seen through the clouds below. There’s an inherent problem with that, but I just cannot put my finger on it …

  39. Zatara

    Many hard core Trumpsters have been daring Pelosi to impeach Trump because they believe that will almost guarantee a win for him in 2020.

    There is little to no chance of an impeachment vote actually being taken in the House for several reasons the biggest of which is that it would waste a huge amount of political capital, do serious damage to the Dems in 2020, and come to nothing except to piss off the voters. The reality is that the Senate won’t confirm the Impeachment so it would die on the vine.

    The serious damage that calling for a vote would do includes the fact that 31 Dem Congressmen are from Districts that Trump comfortably won in his election and voting for impeachment would likely be political suicide for them. So flip a coin, be a team player and lose your seat, or tell Pelosi she better not put you on the spot by bringing a vote to the floor.

    The Dems are playing a different game though. They have no intention of going through with a vote. Instead they are settling for doing as much political damage as possible among the media informed voters by “investigating” Trump and trumpeting invented “bombshells” (which only need to survive scrutiny for a news cycle or so) right up until voting day in 2020.

    In short, the Dem strategy for the 2020 elections is to not to run on their non-existent record or on issues the voters actually give a damn about but merely to deflect and distract by slinging fake news shite at Trump. That has already started to wear very thin with the American voters and it isn’t going to play well for the Dems come next November.

  40. BorisG

    Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan rejected the unusual letter he received from US President Donald Trump warning him against a major military campaign in Syria, tossing it into the trash, the BBC reported Thursday.

    That is how much respect and prestige Trump has earned from his “ally”.

  41. BorisG

    In short, the Dem strategy for the 2020 elections is to not to run on their non-existent record or on issues the voters actually give a damn about

    This may or may not be true. After all we don’t even know who will win the nomination, and the strategy will surely depend on the person.

    However one thing commentators like this are wrong about: the impeachment process is not strategic, it is emotional. If they were strategic they wouldn’t be doing this and risk voter backlash.

  42. BorisG

    31 Dem Congressmen are from Districts that Trump comfortably won in his election and voting for impeachment would likely be political suicide for them.

    I don’t see how the two issues are connected. Trump supporters will never vote for democrats anyway, whether they vote for impeachment or not.

  48. struth

    So some say we can never have a Trump, while others suggest we had one in Whitlam , even though he was from the wrong side.
    So either force of personality and conviction can work in this country, or it’s only able to work for socialists.

    I would argue it’s the latter, due to the march through the institutions.

    But it’s an interesting topic, as I believe a good leader on the right, with the will of the always present silent majority, can over come the noisy radical left embedded in our public service and courts etc.

    People are screaming for Sco Mo to do something right wing, yet crickets.
    He has the electorate begging him and his party to end this Marxist insanity attacking us and he does nothing.
    I believe a strong character in Aus politics, once at the top, could implement a great deal of change.
    Sure the left would scream, but they always do, and with no time limits for a PM compared to a US president, they have the ability to hang in there and fight for longer.

    I still live in hope.
    People are pulling Excrement Retention from trains now.
    How do we think the masses really feel?

    Maybe the left don’t understand this basic concept, (although I think they’re aware of it and it’s foremost in their minds) ……it ain’t as easy as they thought the rebellion could be with people who have known freedom and experienced life in the west.

    China is finding out in Hong Kong for example.
    The left will again cause blood in the streets, but much of it may end up being theirs.

  49. Rafe Champion

    I wonder where and when the ALP will find a competent treasurer?
    Not to mention the Coalition.

  50. Rafe Champion

    John Howard would have done better if he bowled on a length.

  51. Bad Samaritan

    Good to see struth picking up the ball (6.24am).

    Did Howard not confront the fake-aboriginal luvvies and the unions and the refugee lobby and the Indos etc etc and tell them all to F off? How can anyone watch Howard’s heroic performance at the Bringing Them Home crap-fest and not say “wow. that took balls”?

    Then we have the wannabe-Hillary guys like “Roger” at 8.04pm who do exactly as his idols on the left do; never acknowledge that to get 90% of stuff right means that 10% must also be wrong…so let’s pretend that the wrong 10% negates that other 90% shall we?

    FFS. these ingrates remind me of the bloke who’s given a Bugatti Chiron for Xmas but who’s still whining that it’s a flamin’ disgrace it was the Grey/Gold one! Ah…if only we could be spoiled brats all our lives eh?
