Trump's cuts in White House staffing has saved $20 million thus far in taxpayer revenue and is on pace to reach a $22 million in savings compared to the prior administration.

The First Lady cut her staff in half compared to the previous occupant.

Additionally, Trump donates his entire salary every quarter to either charity or some government agency.

The thought had crossed my mind too that the Russians might be behind the Darroch leak. Given what followed the leak, they will have noticed the opportunity for future mischief.

I see Johnson has been widely condemned by MPs. I don't think he's up to the job of being PM let alone a cabinet minister.

Cheerleaders for Failure receiving more bad news with another monthly report on trade and inflation.

First, it's necessary to recount all of the failed predictions. Kinda reminds me of all the phony mmcc alarmism predictions that have failed.

NBC News:
“Trump’s trade war may soon hit consumers’ wallets and paychecks.”
Wharton Business School - University of Pennsylvania:
“Tariffs will surely lead to higher prices for imported goods and, to a lesser extent, prices for non-imported goods that use imported materials.”
CNBC:
“Tariffs are about to hit consumers, and it won’t be pretty.”
Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies:
“Trade restrictions, by their nature, result in price increases for the goods in question. If the price of steel and aluminum goes up, manufacturers will be forced to pass those costs onto American consumers.”
So what is consistent with Cheerleaders for Failure, LIBs, Believers and Democrats when their predictions fail? They double down and move their predictions further into the future. Prices have not risen as predicted. Consumers have not been hammered at the checkout counters. Many have simply argued that the prices will increase over time. It's been over a damn year since the tariffs have been in effect. With each passing month, the Cheerleaders for Failure have finally begun to get more and more quiet.

In summary, after more than a year of tariffs, consumer prices have been only barely affected. Period.

June's consumer price index rose 0.1%. Kind reminds me of the mmcc alarmism over temperature increases. Year over year, consumer prices have only risen 1.6%, which is well below the Fed's warning benchmark of 2% annual inflation; and the economy is still chugging along and still creating jobs. Included in the Fed's analysis is something called the personal consumption expenditure index. This index is about 0.5% BELOW the consumer price index.

The facts TRUMP the alarmism of the so-called experts. Pun intended.

From the very beginning -- over a year ago -- Wilbur Ross was emphatic in stating that the dire predictions would be wrong. He's still correct today.

Some of the Cry Babies wail and gnash their teeth over auto sales. Car and truck prices are up only 0.6% on average from a year ago.

Another Cry Baby claimed that technology and appliances that are mainly manufactured abroad, would be the killer for consumers. Prices of televisions, computer and many major appliances have gone DOWN. In June, television prices dropped another 2.4% marking 11 straight months of declining prices. Year over year, televisions are 20% less expensive. Computers and related technology -- including phones -- are down 5.9% year over year. Phones alone are down 14%.

Washing machine prices went up initially, but are now down 4% year over year.

China imports have only had a 2.9% effect on prices, but the items have to be purchased by consumers for them to be affected. Prices on toys from China have dropped over 7%. Sports equipment is also less. Clothing prices are down.

None of these numbers indicate that prices will remain low forever, but after a year of tariffs, consumers are not feeling pinched by any increase in prices. It is entirely possible that the tariffs are being absorbed by foreign producers and middle men. Discounting products in price or foreign currencies declining against the dollar can cause this.

STEADY WINNING.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that Trump is more popular today among registered voters than he was on election day, and that is bad news for the Democrat Socialist Party.

When you consider all of the media attacks -- 90% negative, the endless witch hunts investigating people looking for crimes, the impeachment bluffs by Democrats and the obstructionists in Congress, Trump is no worse off than the day he was elected.

What should bother the Democrat Socialists even more is that the 5% jump in the poll occurred AFTER the two debates where the Democrat Socialists were trying to outdo each other in giving away the farm the store and the whole kit and [k]aboodle.

Even worse, let's look at the source of the poll: ABC/WaPo -- they hate Trump.

The lunatic on the Potomac actually tweeted this. Surely he is certifiable:

"A big subject today at the White House Social Media Summit will be the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies. We will not let them get away with it much longer. The Fake News Media will also be there, but for a limited period. The Fake News is not as important, or as powerful, as Social Media. They have lost tremendous credibility since that day in November, 2016, that I came down the escalator with the person who was to become your future First Lady. When I ultimately leave office in six years, or maybe 10 or 14 (just kidding), they will quickly go out of business for lack of credibility, or approval, from the public. That’s why they will all be Endorsing me at some point, one way or the other. Could you imagine having Sleepy Joe Biden, or Alfred E. Newman or a very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas (1/1024th), as your President, rather than what you have now, so great looking and smart, a true Stable Genius! Sorry to say that even Social Media would be driven out of business along with, and finally, the Fake News Media!"

What a muppet.

"Thursday, July 11, 2019

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.

The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 42% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7. (see trends)."Thursday, July 11, 2019"

Losed One are the Eyes going now

While I realize that this statement by Pelosi was intended to be a propaganda ploy against law enforcement and some moral value signaling, it could very well be the beginning of a political kill shot on Democrats.

Let this sink in: The Speaker of the House is advocating for a "global society." That is, the US is no longer a sovereign nation and has no obligation to enforce its laws because people go to church on Sunday. That's pretty rich getting a lecture about church from abortion advocates and those who reject spirituality. Bank robbers, rapists, thieves and drug dealers go to prison on Sundays and other days. They are also separated from their families as a result of their crimes. It should be no different for illegal aliens.

It should also not be lost on anyone that Trump held off on the raids for two weeks to allow the Democrats to come to the table and close the immigration law loopholes that have created much of the problems on the Southern border. Didn't happen. Instead, we get this whiny excuse-making.

Democrats are the undisputed Champions of Unintended Consequences.

Let the raids and deportations begin!

"I respect no borders."
- Joe Biden, speech yesterday in NY

Even though a few steps slow, Sleepy Joe was the only possible centrist Democrat running. No more. He has transformed himself into old, white Socialist Bernie -- the 0.5 version. Joe is slower than Bernie.
