Trump's Economic Policies Raise Wages for 99%

The Bureau of Economic Analysis released annual revisions to its personal-income report on Tuesday 7/30/2019, and the data should encourage everyone: Americans' wages have been increasing at a healthy rate since President Donald Trump took office. The Wall Street Journal reports, "The revisions show that employee compensation rose 4.5% in 2017 and 5% in 2018 — some $4.4 billion and $87.1 billion more than previously reported. The trend has continued into 2019, with compensation increasing $378 billion or 3.4% in the first six months alone. Wages and salaries were revised upward to 5.3% from 3.6% in May year over year. And in June wages and salaries grew at an annual rate of 5.5%, which is a rocking 4.1% after adjusting for inflation."

Counter to the Leftmedia's erroneous narrative that credits Barack Obama and not Trump for America's current economic growth, the Journal notes, "Employee compensation has increased by $150 billion more in the first six months of 2019 than all of 2016. Compensation increased 42% more during the first two years of the Trump Presidency than in 2015 and 2016. This refutes the claim by liberals that the economy has merely continued on the same trajectory since 2017 as it was before."

The fact of the matter is that today "Americans are earning more and relying less on government." So, how does this reality comport with the leading Democrat presidential candidates' socialist message of ever more government-provided "free" stuff — stuff that can only be "given" by taking more of the wages of hard-working Americans? For all the overwhelmingly negative press Trump receives, at the very least his policies are proving effective in putting/leaving more money in the pockets of hard-working Americans, giving them more freedom to spend and invest as they see fit. Once again, it's capitalism, not socialism, that is lifting everyone's boats.



Listen to what they say!

Democrats love to proclaim that they support protecting Second Amendment rights even if they just want more "sensible" gun control. But as conservatives have regularly pointed out, Democrats' "sensible" gun control would do next to nothing to stop criminals from committing crimes with firearms. In fact, the vast majority of Democrats' proposed gun control would only make it harder for law-abiding Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

The fact of the matter is that the Democrat Party's agenda is to essentially eliminate the Second Amendment entirely. On Monday, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden insisted there should be "no compromise" on guns. Instead, he bloviated, "We're talking about loosening access to have guns, to be able to take them into places of worship. I mean, it is absolutely irrational. ... The idea that we don't have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, it's absolutely mindless." Biden then absurdly claimed that what he was calling for was "no violation of the Second Amendment."

Even if Biden's statement on banning "magazines that can hold multiple bullets" was a gaffe — the very purpose of a magazine is to hold multiple bullets, and the vast majority of modern firearms use magazines — Biden's overall message is a clear attack on the Second Amendment.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren attacks the Second Amendment by labeling the issue a "public-health emergency." Warren pontificated, "We need to treat this as the public-health emergency that it is. And it's going to take a lot of pieces and a lot of changes that we need to do to bring down deaths from gun violence." Warren conveniently ignores the truth — that gun-related deaths due to crime have actually been decreasing for years as gun ownership has gone up — so that she can spin her "public health" narrative with the goal being the effective elimination of the Second Amendment.

Democrats have demonized the National Rifle Association, the nation's leading advocacy organization for the Second Amendment that historically enjoyed bipartisan support, as a terrorist organization. Bernie Sanders, who in the past stood up for Vermonters' Second Amendment rights and was endorsed by the NRA, sings a different tune of late. On Saturday, Sanders asserted, "We are telling [President Donald] Trump and [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell, 'Listen to the American people and not the NRA.' And I would hope very much that we can overcome the fear of the NRA and do what the American people want."

Beto O'Rourke has no love for the Second Amendment either, as he has taken to dropping F-bombs when expressing his disgust over Americans' right to possess "weapons of war." Along with banning "assault weapons" and implementing a national gun registry, O'Rourke also wants a mandatory buyback (a.k.a. confiscation). "Buy those weapons of war back," he thundered. "Mandate that. Not voluntary. Let's be really clear with our fellow Americans."

It has never been more clear that the radical Left has taken over the Democrat Party. And it sees the elimination of the Second Amendment as an essential stepping stone to the ultimate elimination of the Constitution.
