Apparently the brace of geniuses that are Commerce Secretary Ross and Director of the President’s Trade Council Peter Navarro have prevailed in their attempts to trounce the (((globalists))) in order to put America First and Make America Great Again. You’ll notice we’re punishing our oldest and strongest allies and partners here. Apparently they needed to do something to keep anyone from paying attention to the fact that the President’s promises regarding economic growth are DOA.
as a candidate, Trump promised his policies would generate sustained 4% annual economic growth
after Trump became president, his White House promised 3%
today, his administration reported 1st quarter 2018 growth of 2.2%

And that the Paul Ryan Tax Cut for the People Who Have Been Subsidizing His Entire Political Career and Lavish Lifestyle at the Expense of the Public Good Act of 2017 is, as anyone who could do even basic addition and subtraction without having to take off their shoes to get to 20 (cough – not Speaker Paul Ryan – cough) will tell you, a colossal failure at stimulating the economy. Though it is the massive handout to the people that needed more money the least!
Shockingly, companies don't seem to be spending their tax-cut windfalls on investments and new hiring. https://t.co/tiaOJlxWmr

John Stephens, chief financial officer at AT&T, said 20% of the company's employees are call-center workers. He said he doesn't need that many. In addition, he added, "I don't need that many guys to install coaxial cables." https://t.co/V0BXg0CmEI

Who ever could have predicted?
Also, noted felon, all around self righteous hypocritical scumbag and wife abuser Dinesh D’Souza is getting a full pardon. Because why not. Anyone want to wager that this didn’t go through the regular pardon process? Anyone, anyone?
Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government!

Treated so unfairly that he never actually had to serve any time in prison. And got to continue all of his normal
scams money making activities while serving his sentence doing community service in a half way house. As opposed to Matthew Charles who, because of an error, is now being sent back to prison because the Department of Justice under Attorney General Sessions can’t abide an African American man being treated decently within the criminal justice system. It is important to note that Kim Kardashian has been advocating for Charles to receive a pardon or clemency as part of her prison reform advocacy that brought her to the White House yesterday. It didn’t actually make a difference because Matthew Charles doesn’t make factually inaccurate, ideologically slanted, and proto-fascistic documentaries about the President’s political opponents.
