Trump's Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was passed along party lines with no Democrats voting for Americans to keep more of what they earn, has provided 90% of working Americans with more money every month. Companies of all sizes have provided bonuses and raises to employees and begun expanding to offer more jobs and services.

In the State of Oregon alone, there has been a huge impact.

FireBird Bronze is a small company with only nine employees, but they are using the tax cuts to upgrade equipment, hire more people, build a new facility and offer health insurance for the first time to their employees.

Eagle Telephone System, Inc. & Eagle Valley Communications is providing $1,000 bonuses to their 19 employees.

Pacific Power in Portland is passing utility savings on to their customers.

Rocky Mountain Power in Portland is passing utility savings on to their customers.

Avista Corporation is a utility corporation that will pass savings on to their customers in the range of $50-$60 million annually.

Miles Fiberglass in Oregon City is hiring more employees, increasing wages by 9%, implementing profit-sharing.

Umpqua Holdings Corporation in Portland increased the base wage to $15.25 an hour and provided $1,000 bonuses for over 15,000 non-executive employees. They also paid $3.2 million in employee profit-sharing and contributed $2 million to the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation as a result of the tax bill.

AT&T provided $1,000 bonuses to 637 Oregon employees.

Apple provided $2,500 employee bonuses, $30 billion in additional capital expenditures and hiring 20,000 new employees.

Walmart has 43 locations in Oregon. They provided bonuses, wage increases, expanded family leave.

Home Depot has 37 locations in Oregon. They provided bonuses for all hourly wage employees.

Lowe's has 14 stores and 2,000 employees in Oregon. They provided bonuses of up to $1,000.

Starbucks Coffee Company has 359 locations in Oregon and provided the same bonuses afforded to all their employees in every state.

Bank of America has 50 branch locations in Oregon. They provided $1,000 bonuses.

Wells Fargo has 95 locations in Oregon. The base wage was raised to $15 an hour.

STEADY WINNING.

1% WIN is STILL A WIN. :)
Not quite yet.

As of 12 hours ago, there were 3,435 provisional ballots not yet counted. And there are 1,564 votes separating the two candidates.

And here's some analysis from the NYTimes:
  • This is an ominous sign for Republicans: The highest-income and best-educated elements of the electorate — those deeply uneasy with President Trump — are showing the most interest in voting. Defending a few dozen districts that are either more heavily urban or feature a similar demographic mix as Ohio’s 12th District, Republicans will need to find a way to win back suburbanites or better galvanize rural voters. If they do not, their House majority will slip away.
However, it continued:
  • The activist wing of the Democratic Party mobilized for several of the night’s biggest races, trying to replicate the insurgent victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York earlier this summer — and for the most part falling short.
From my perspective, both the Dems and Republicans have great challenges ahead of them this year. The Republicans have to realize how weak their position really is. If they think that they're going to waltz to victory on the strength of President Trump's coattails, they're deceiving themselves.

The Democrats don't get that explaining to the electorate that they're all wrong and don't understand what the "correct" positions are is a non-starter. That's what got Trump elected in the first place. Dems cannot win if their platform is based on Trump-is-a-jerk. They need actual, substantive ideas for addressing the problems that the country faces. AFAICT, the Dems, and specifically party leaders, don't get this at all.

It is being reported that Trump's stars in Hollywood have multiplied overnight. There are now several dozen Trump stars on the Walk of Fame.

Yes, it's true. :)

NOT Photoshopped. There are dozens now.

I think the phrase comes from 'Top Gun' but I see that as a target-rich environment.

Regarding the STARS lets tell the whole story as they are NOT REAL Stars and in the words of the Famous "We don't want fake news"

"The Faction 1776 is believed to be working along with conservative artist Sabo. Their Twitter bio describes themselves as “Anti-PC street art. Vandals bringing uncomfortable truth. Sabo & I trigger Libs. 100% anti-identity politics.”

They spent $1,000 on the stars, which were printed on sheets of floor vinyl with adhesive backing. They kept the stars covered until all of the copies were in place so as not to raise suspicion.

The stars, however, were peeled up. A member of the cleaning service that handles the daily graffiti that is placed on the Walk of Fame told the Hollywood Reporter, “We started at 5 o’clock in the morning and we’ve found about 50 stars.”"

IMO Trump seems to be doing a great job ... one of only 3 leaders in the world who appear to be in control and moving their respected nations forward ..the other 2 being being Putin and Kim Jong Il :shock:

I would certainly agree that Trump and Putin seem to actually LEAD, for the benefits of their respective countries.
Not too sure whos pulling Jong's strings.
Both Trump and Putin have incurred the wrath of the world banking cartel, which is all right by me.

If Kim gets rid of the nukes and starts to worry about feeding his people, he will be moving his country forward. Trump is not going to fall for any phony lies and promises. Those days are over with. He'll help North Korea as soon as they start helping themselves.

Part of being a Leader is to bring your country together. Trump is supposed to be the president for ALL the people, not just his supporters.

If the bank controlled MSM media have turned against the ELECTED POTUS, theN it is the bank funded MSM that is dividing the country. This is a similar scenario to Brexit in the UK.... I will elaborate. The vote to leave EU was roughly 52% to 48% remain. Since the referendum , the tax payer and Brussels funded BBC has admitted that ALL its current affairs programs regarding Brexit and the EU have featured over 75% pro EU speakers and 25% Brexit speakers. CLEAR OR NOT. Just who or whom is being devisive.
