Big News From the U.S. Border!

Since Trump has been in office, the number of illegal entry has dropped by 53% at the border.

From The Washington Examiner:

The significant downturn in the number of illegal border crossers between the U.S. and Mexico is "nothing short of miraculous," National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said on C-SPAN Monday.


"As far as the Trump administration's efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on," he said. "At six months, where we are on meeting those promises, we are seeing nothing short of miraculous. (Link: www.washingtonexaminer.com) you look at the rhetoric that President Trump has given, it has caused a number of illegal border crossings to go down. We have never seen such a drop that we currently have."

"There's a vibe, there's an energy in the Border Patrol that's never been there before in 20 years that I've been in the patrol," Judd added in a separate Fox News interview.

This month, Customs and Border Protection reported a 53 percent decrease in the number of apprehensions at the southwest border since last year. The number also includes those deemed inadmissible. CBP sees apprehensions as a proxy for how many people are trying to cross the border, and says the drop in apprehensions indicates a drop in attempted illegal crossings.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/dow-closing-22000-132905210.html
DOW 22,000
August 2, 2017

The Dow Jones Industrial Average cracked a new milestone on Wednesday: 22,000.

The blue chip index rallied on the back of Apple (AAPL), which gained 4.7% to be tops for the index after reporting better-than-expected earnings on Tuesday after the bell.

Because the Dow is a price-weighted index — meaning it gives weight to members based on the price of its shares, not is market cap — Apple’s surge on Wednesday added about 50 points to the index.

The Dow ultimately gained 52 points, or 0.24%, to close at 22,016.24.

Elsewhere in markets, it was a mixed day with the S&P 500 gaining 1 point, or 0.05%, and the Nasdaq losing just 0.29 points for a move of 0%. Breadth in the market was not particularly impressive, however, with declining stocks outpacing advancers by a margin of about two to one.

Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar fell to a 27-month low and has erased all of its post-election gains. The dollar had rallied after Donald Trump’s win in anticipation of higher economic growth and potential trade restrictions coming from the administration. Fundamentally, however, the economic picture has not changed in the U.S. with Trump in the White House.

The headline stock indexes on Wednesday masked some churn below the surface, notably in Chinese stocks, which sold off on reports the Trump administration could be looking into Chinese intellectual property rules.

On Tuesday morning, Trump again tweeted about the stock market — a recurring theme over the last few weeks — saying the market could hit an all-time high of 22,000.

The economic highlight was research institute ADP’s report on private sector payroll growth in July, which showed 178,000 jobs were added to the economy during the month, slightly less than expected by economists.

This report comes two days ahead of the government’s official jobs numbers set for release on Wednesday.

5 INCREDIBLE Ways Trump Is ALREADY Making America Greater!
Politics By Just In August 4, 2017

President Trump and his administration have made some huge steps forward in the quest to Make America Great Again.

Here are five of the most important things that President Trump has accomplished over the last few weeks.

Ending Affirmative Action

Recently, the Trump administration has begun the process of ending the outdated and outright racist policy of affirmative action, focusing on school admissions to start with.

Affirmative action is, in itself, a racist concept; it essentially portrays certain racial and ethnic minorities, specifically African Americans, as somehow inferior to other races.

The policy comes from a time when segregation was still occurring in schools, and black Americans faced far more obstacles.
Today, however, it is outdated and is doing far more harm than good, it needs to go.

Immigration Reform

The next big thing Trump has done recently is his announcement for immigration reform.

Now, we will be focusing on successful, English speaking immigrants, rather than opening the door to hordes of third world, unskilled, non-English speaking migrants; this will make a tremendous difference in the quality of life for all Americans.

By focusing on people who will succeed, rather than those who will simply come here to take advantage of the system, a new era of prosperity and growth for America is on the horizon.

Ending the Trans Insanity in the Military

President Trump has also announced, to the cheers and support of our military, that transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in the armed forces any longer.

After Obama used our military as a perverse and twisted social experiment, President Trump is completely committed to helping our servicemen and women, and will no longer subject them to the foolish and dangerous “politically correct” environment that was fostered under the previous administration.

Obama put our soldiers in danger by forcing them to deal with left-wing, P.C. foolishness, while cutting their budget and completely abusing them- all while he disparaged their service from the podium with every opportunity available.

Unleashing ICE

Another achievement of the Trump administration has been to “unchain” ICE, thereby allowing our Immigration officers to do their jobs.

Already, we have seen a tremendous drop in the number of illegal aliens attempting to cross the border, and arrests are up exponentially in just a few months’ time.

Deportations are also up, as our federal immigration officers are no longer forced to turn a blind eye to the waves of illegal aliens who’re arrested every single day.

Setting the Stage For THE WALL

This is yet another contrast to Obama’s disastrous policies, and a complete turnaround from Obama’s extremely weak immigration policy in specific.

Going hand in hand with this is, of course, Trump’s “The Wall” plan, which has seen major progress in recent weeks.

“Trump’s Wall” has been granted funding recently, and already, construction is underway, as well as testing of designs in San Diego, California.

With this amazing feat of architecture, President Trump has vowed to stem the flow of illegal aliens who have spent decades pouring over our borders, and have gone on to commit a multitude of crimes against the American people.

Ignore the Liberal Mainstream Media Lies

Despite the narrative from the biased, lying, anti-Trump mainstream media, President Trump has made huge strides in keeping his promises to the American people.

In less than one full year in office, Trump has accomplished so much, and his accomplishments come despite massive obstruction from both Democrats and establishment “Republicans,” all of whom have fought our president every step of the way.

Make no mistake, it will be a long and difficult battle ahead, but under President Trump, America is making a comeback in major ways.

No matter what we face as a country, we are committed to pulling ourselves out of the rut that Obama’s failed presidency left us in.

With a strong and determined leader like Donald Trump, and a good bit of effort on our part, there is no doubt that we will Make America Great Again.

MAGA: Economists Are Stunned As Trump Presidency Adds 1,000,000 New Jobs In Just 6 Months
Defying expectations that job creation would slump this year, America has added more than 200,000 jobs in four out of Trump’s six months in office. That brought the total number of jobs created since the start of February to 1.07 million. On average, the economy created 179,000 jobs in each of the first six months of Trump’s presidency. The Trump administration is pressing forward on tax cuts and regulatory reform, efforts which might also bolster jobs creation.

8/4/17

The American economy has added more than one million jobs since President Donald Trump took office.

EDITOR’S NOTE: President Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do, and one million new jobs since he took over certainly attests to that fact. This is why he is so relentlessly attacked, because the fake news media and the Democrats have to make sure Trump fails , they need Trump to fail or they lose power forever. And if that means concocting a fake news narrative about Russian collusion and keeping it going for the next 4 years, that’s exactly what they are going to do.

Defying expectations that job creation would slump this year, America has added more than 200,000 jobs in four out of Trump’s six months in office. That brought the total number of jobs created since the start of February to 1.07 million. On average, the economy created 179,000 jobs in each of the first six months of Trump’s presidency.

Many economists thought that job creation would slow this year after jobs surged in the final two years of the Obama administration. Falling unemployment and an aging population were expected to slow down monthly payroll growth to between 125,00 to 150,000 on average.
The Obama failure couldn’t comprehend how Trump could add new jobs because Obama had no idea how to do it:

    1 million new jobs in 6 months
    209k new jobs in July
    Unemployment rate at 16 yr low
    Thanks, @POTUS! pic.twitter.com/5vQaEY9nQP

    — GOP (@GOP) August 4, 2017

The unemployment rate has fallen to 4.3 percent, a level that many economists consider near full employment. Wages, however, have not risen by as much as most economists would expect if the economy were operating at full employment. That suggests there may be more room for improvement.

The labor force participation rate remains low, indicating that there may be more room for the economy to grow as low unemployment and rising wages lure Americans back to work.

The Trump administration is pressing forward on tax cuts and regulatory reform, efforts which might also bolster jobs creation.

The Republican Party sent out this tweet to celebrate the landmark. source

Bible Studies at the White House: Who's Inside This Spiritual Awakening?

WASHINGTON – A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House.

Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God's Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history.

They've been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history – men and women who don't mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible.

Ralph Drollinger of Capitol Ministries told CBN News, "These are godly individuals that God has risen to a position of prominence in our culture."

They're all handpicked by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

For more, tune into Faith Nation, Wed. @12:30pm, on facebook.com/cbnnews. White House Correspondent Jennifer Wishon will be LIVE to discuss this Bible study's impact on the White House climate.

"I don't think Donald Trump has figured out that he chained himself to the Apostle Paul," Drollinger laughed.

Drollinger is a former NBA-playing giant of a man with an even bigger calling. He founded Capitol Ministries with the idea that if you change the hearts of lawmakers, then their Christian world view will guide them to make good policies.

He's started Bible studies in 40 state capitols, a number of foreign capitols, teaches weekly studies in the U.S. House and Senate and now leads about a dozen members of President Trump's Cabinet in weekly studies of the scriptures.

Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo are just a few of the regulars.

"It's the best Bible study that I've ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they're so noble; they're so learned," Drollinger said.

It's groundbreaking since he doesn't think a formal Bible study among executive Cabinet members has been done in at least 100 years.

America's top cop, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, also attends the study.

"He'll (Jeff Sessions) go out the same day I teach him something and I'll see him do it on camera and I just think, 'Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable and they're at Bible study every week they're in town,'" Drollinger said.

President Trump is invited to attend the Bible studies, too. Each week he receives a copy of Drollinger's teaching.

And Vice President Pence is also planning to join the study as his schedule permits. He also serves as a sponsor.

In Pence, Drollinger sees many similarities to biblical figures like Joseph, Mordecai and Daniel – all men who rose to the number two position in governments at different times in history.

"Mike Pence has respect for the office. He dresses right - like it says Joseph cleaned himself up before he went to stand before the Pharaoh," Drollinger told CBN News.

"Mike Pence has uncompromising biblical tenacity and he has a loving tone about him that's not just a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal," he continued. "And then fourthly, he brings real value to the head of the nation."   

Like others, Drollinger often compares President Trump to biblical strongman Samson.

"I just praise God for them," he said. "And I praise God for Mike Pence, who I think with Donald Trump chose great people to lead our nation."

Trump’s New Immigration Crackdown Leads to Higher Construction Wages
Politics By Eren Moreno August 7, 2017

President Trump’s crackdown on illegals is already having a positive impact on American workers!

The construction industry is now set to see a HUGE increase in wages.

After decades of stiffing American born citizens in favor of cheap, subpar labor from illegal aliens, the construction industry is now seeing a boom in hiring American workers.

In a way, it’s a real shame that it took a Presidential mandate to force these people to hire AMERICANS instead of illegals, but they’ve been allowed to get away with it for decades.

Now, under President Trump, Americans are seeing jobs that were once all but completely lost to illegals being opened up again, and it’s amazing.

Wonder how the media will spin this to be a negative?

From Breitbart

In a new report by Fox News, Texas construction companies admitted that Trump’s increased enforcement of immigration was forcing them to pay higher wages to U.S. construction workers.

Fox News reported:

    “Half of the workers in construction in Texas are undocumented,” [Stan Marek, CEO of Marek Construction] said.

    “We do hear that there are a lot of undocumented workers that are leaving the state, going to other states that don’t have the anti-immigrant sentiment and many of them are going back to Mexico.”

    Ted Wilson with Residential Strategies, Inc. has run the numbers.

    “We’ve seen direct construction costs climb by over 30 percent,” Wilson said, “and a lot of that is directly attributed to what builders are having to pay their subs and trades in wages.”

    Meaning, with so few workers out there, construction companies have had to pay more to attract them, which adds to the cost of a home.

The big business lobby and CEOs have long criticized Trump’s immigration crackdown, primarily because their businesses have a direct interest in keeping the pipeline of low-skilled foreign workers coming to the U.S. to drive down the cost of American wages.

Trump’s most recent endorsement of Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) and Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) RAISE Act, which would cut legal immigration in half in order to drive up the wages of U.S. workers, has shown a renewed commitment to the economic nationalist agenda that propelled his election.

In Trump Era, U.S. Corporations See Best Earnings in 13 Years

As President Trump’s administration enters the last half of its first year, U.S. corporations are experiencing their best earnings in 13 years, a report finds.

Bloomberg reports that U.S. corporate profits in the second quarter “have beaten estimates at more than three-quarters of the Standard & Poor’s 500 member companies. In every sector, at least half of the companies have surpassed or met expectations, with many also getting a boost from a sinking U.S. dollar.”

“Growth was particularly strong in key regions of North America and Europe, where we grew sales greater than twice GDP, as well as throughout Asia-Pacific,” Dow Chief Executive Officer Andrew Liveris said.

Europe supported U.S. growth during the first three months of this year, but during the second three months, emerging markets came in strong for U.S. earnings.

Mark Luschini of financial service company Janney Montgomery Scott told Bloomberg that multinational corporations are seeing growth and higher earnings in both the U.S. and overseas operations.

Bloomberg reported:

    Of the 454 companies in the S&P 500 that have so far reported second-quarter results, 68 percent have beaten analysts’ average estimates for revenue, and 78 percent have topped per-share earnings expectations, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Earnings rose an average of 9.8 percent, while sales have climbed 5.5 percent.

Indeed, even as U.S. prospects rise, so has that of much of the world’s economy.

“More of the global economy is participating in this recovery simultaneously, and that’s what shows up in the top-line results, particularly in technology,” said Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Leuthold Group.

The health care and banking sectors have also seen great growth.

Analysts expect this growth to continue into the third quarter.
