Once again President Donald Trump makes history! “Make America Great Again!” was not just a slogan!
Although our economy was supposed to grow at best at a 2.5% rate, and even though we have had two devastating hurricanes, the economy went on to grow a whole 3% during the third quarter of the fiscal year. The Trump Administration also went on to add 1,405,000 jobs in their first eight months of Trump presidency. By contrast, Former President Barack Hussein Obama had lost 4,367,000 jobs in his first eight months in office.
First reading on third-quarter GDP up 3.0%, vs 2.5% rise expected
The U.S. economy unexpectedly maintained a brisk pace of growth in the third quarter.
An increase in inventory investment and a smaller trade deficit offset a hurricane-related slowdown in consumer spending and a decline in construction.
Gross domestic product increased at a 3.0 percent annual rate in the July-September period after expanding at a 3.1 percent pace in the second quarter
The U.S. economy unexpectedly maintained a brisk pace of growth in the third quarter as an increase in inventory investment and a smaller trade deficit offset a hurricane-related slowdown in consumer spending and a decline in construction.
Gross domestic product increased at a 3.0 percent annual rate in the July-September period after expanding at a 3.1 percent pace in the second quarter, the Commerce Department said on Friday.
The department said while it was impossible to estimate the overall impact of hurricanes Harvey and Irma on third-quarter GDP, preliminary estimates showed that the back-to-back storms had caused losses of $121.0 billion in privately owned fixed assets and $10.4 billion in government-owned fixed assets.
Harvey and Irma struck parts of Texas and Florida in late August and early September. Hurricane Maria, which destroyed infrastructure in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, had no impact on third-quarter GDP growth as the islands are not included in the United State’s national accounts.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the economy growing at a 2.5 percent pace in the third quarter. Excluding inventory investment, the economy grew at a 2.3 percent rate, slowing from the second quarter’s 2.9 percent pace.
With post-hurricane labor market, retail sales and industrial production data already showing an acceleration in underlying economic activity, Friday’s report will probably have no impact on monetary policy in the near term.
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen cautioned last month that economic growth in the third quarter “will be held down” by the severe disruptions caused by the hurricanes.
The U.S. central bank is expected to increase interest rates for a third time this year in December.
The economic recovery since the 2007-2009 recession is now in its eighth year and showing little signs of fatigue. The economy is being powered by a tightening labor market, which has largely maintained a strong performance that started during former President Barack Obama’s first term.
Though U.S. stocks have risen in anticipation of President Donald Trump’s tax reform, the administration has yet to enact any significant new economic policies. Trump wants big tax cuts and fewer regulations to boost annual GDP growth to 3 percent.
Businesses accumulated inventories at a $35.8 billion pace in the third quarter in anticipation of strong demand. As a result, inventory investment contributed 0.73 percentage point to third-quarter GDP growth, after adding just over a tenth of a percentage point to growth in the prior period.
Exports increased at a 2.3 percent rate in the third quarter, while imports fell at a 0.8 percent pace. That left a smaller trade deficit, leading to trade adding 0.41 percentage point to GDP growth. Trade has contributed to output for three quarters in a row.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which hurt incomes and undercut retail sales in August, crimped consumer spending in the third quarter. Growth in consumer spending, which accounts for more than two-thirds of the U.S. economy, slowed to a 2.4 percent rate following a robust 3.3 percent pace in the second quarter.
The storms also weighed on investment in nonresidential structures like oil and gas wells. Spending on mining exploration, wells and shafts grew at a 21.7 percent rate, decelerating from the second-quarter’s 116.3 percent pace.
As result, spending on residential structures fell at a 5.2 percent pace in the third quarter after rising at a 7.0 percent rate in the second quarter.
Investment in home building, which was already undermined by land and labor shortages, also took a hit from Harvey and Irma. Spending on residential construction declined at a 6.0 percent rate, contracting for a second straight quarter.
Business investment on equipment rose at an 8.6 percent rate, increasing for a fourth straight quarter. Government investment fell for a third straight quarter.
President Trump has delivered on every promise he has made. The economy is back. Illegals crossing our border is down by 74%. The wall is being built. Regulations are being destroyed.
All this without the help of the GOP or the Democrats, who are there to just stand in his way every step of the way and put out lies about him and his administration. Never did I dream that after 8 long dark years under the charlatan President Barack Hussein Obama that we could be on track in less than a year. We are now headed back to the America we were during the Reagan years. The days when if you worked hard you could get ahead in life without help from the government nor without the government impeding your progress. It’s Morning Again in America!
President Trump might very well go down as the best president in history. And all it took was shunning interests on both sides of the aisle and doing what’s right for the American people. Imagine after so many years of so many presidents doing what’s right for every third world two-bit cesspool, we have a president who actually cares Americans FIRST!
Please share if you are proud that we have a president that puts “America First!….

What This Hotel Just Banned Has Muslims Ready To Riot Around The World Right Now
Now, this is a smart move in today’s world.
The Malaysian Association of Hotels or also known as MAH has now defended its members’ policy of prohibiting their frontline staff from wearing the hijab, or headscarf while at work saying it is international practice and not meant to be discriminatory.
A spokesperson for the hotels, Cheah Swee Hee, said the hotels, especially the international hotels in Malaysia, which has a huge Muslim population, followed a standard operating procedure and policy on the matter and that it shouldn’t be called discrimination because these hotel companies have international policies to follow. He later added that it’s not about “Islamophobia” because the practice of not letting women wear headscarves has been done from the beginning. But of course, the left is going crazy over this policy.
I regret that Muslim women in Malaysia still face religious discrimination, when it comes to the wearing of the hijab, which is a religious requirement that many of them adhere to.
This is according to the report by the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF).
MEF executive director Shamsuddin Bardan said he had received complaints from hotel employees regarding the banning of headscarves or hijab at the workplace.
This is something we should not tolerate especially when there’s no plausible explanation as to why the hijab is a hindrance to the nature of their work.
This is even more so in a country which holds Islam as the religion of the Federation.
Simply being in the private sector does not exclude the party from respecting one’s right to practice their religious requirements.
This argument also applies to our national airlines, Malaysia Airlines, where there are also calls from flight attendants to be allowed to observe their religious requirement in wearing hijab.
The fact that flight attendants with hijab had been serving the pilgrims during the Hajj season in flights to Mecca is testimony that wearing the hijab does not determine inefficiency.
With regard to hospitality industries, it is not easy for these women to actually lodge reports, especially when allowances, salaries and placement for internship are involved.
If these are students, we know that internship is part of the requirement in their last semester before they can graduate.
Our Muslim students are trapped in a systematic discriminatory process along the line.
I urge Muslim ladies who face such discrimination to come forward and report it to us at [email protected] We promise to maintain their confidentiality.
Now here is the thing. No one is forced to work at this establishment. Just like an individual can pick and choose where they will work, a business should have the right to dictate what and what should not be worn by their employees, especially those who have direct access to the public. I am sure this rule must have been in the contract every employee needs to sign in order to get employment from this company.
Wafiq president Associate Professor Dr Rafidah Hanim Mokhtar said the NGO has received four direct complaints while her personal Facebook page has received dozens of grouses .
“Since we have many universities producing graduates in hospitality and tourism, it’s kind of a setback to have international hotels having (such) standards.
“It’s discriminatory against our citizens in terms of employment and training. I’ll have to work with the respective ministries, such as higher education and tourism (on this matter),” she told The Malaysian Insight in a WhatsApp message.
Syukri, a hotel banquet manager in Kuala Lumpur said the hijab policy had been in place for at least 10 years.
“At a five-star hotel in KL where I once worked, Muslim female staff were not allowed to wear the headscarf so as to attract customers.
“If a woman wanted a job as a waitress, she could not wear a scarf. It was considered unfashionable and unattractive,” said Syukri who did not want to give his full name.
As he was in charge of hiring temporary workers for big functions, he had to tell recruits that they could not wear the headscarf. He said the policy consistently applied to those working in food and beverage, such as servers, and in frontline positions, such as receptionists.
Syukri left the five-star hotel three years ago and found another job at a hotel that did not have such a policy.
“I moved to another hotel because I did not want to be a part of that kind of practice,” the 39-year-old said.
Farisha, who has worked for a year as a receptionist at a five-star hotel in Putrajaya, said she removed her headscarf whenever she went to work
“To be a receptionist at this hotel, you can’t wear the ‘tudung’. They say that this is in line with the image of an international hotel.
“So after I finish work, I will put it back on. I just don’t wear it at work. What else can I do? It is not easy to find a job now,” said the 29-year-old. – November 11, 2017.
Let us be honest with ourselves. This isn’t about a headscarf. This rule has been applied for years. I bet if any of us worked there we wouldn’t be allowed to wear a New York Yankee’s hat. All this is is the left and how they try to push Islam on the rest of the freedom loving world. And if anyone dares to say “NO” they are branded as racists, bigots and “Islamaphobes” which is a term that doesn’t even exist. It’s all part of the globalization movement and some of us just aren’t having anything to do with it. This is a great example as to why we elected President Donald Trump. We are sick and tired of people pushing their own beliefs and culture on us while if we do the same we are branded as criminals.

BREAKING: BIG Gov’t Bust In Vegas Massacre With Who Gave Shooter Meds – Here’s Why The Story Vanished
It’s been a month and a half since the nation’s largest mass shooting in modern history happened with more questions lingering than answers – until today. It’s been strange, in the least, that a crime of mass casualty has been swept under the rug and all but forgotten as authorities and the mainstream media have abandoned the story altogether, seemingly hoping that the American people would move on. However, now it’s become clear as to what the supposedly sloppy investigation has been hiding all along, and it’s clear as to the reason why now that it’s been revealed as who gave the shooter his medication and perhaps why.
It’s been known since the beginning shooter Stephen Paddock was on Diazepam, which is a drug used to treat anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures. The known side effects of this controlled substance it’s likely to cause paranoid or suicidal ideation and impair memory, judgment, and coordination. Paddock was a known drinker who often over-imbibed which has particular damning effects on someone taking Diazepam. “Combining with other substances, particularly alcohol, can slow breathing and possibly lead to death,” but can also dramatically increase the effects of the drug.
So either Paddock was dishonest with his doctor about his alcohol use, abused the medication on purpose, or was prescribed this particular drug with an ulterior motive by the prescriber. Considering who gave it to, seems to suggest the latter as well as the reason why the government is so desperate to hide the details of this horrifying mass casualty case.
The physician who last June prescribed accused Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock Diazepam (a drug used to make some more hypno-suggestible or “hypnotizable” and induce amnesia), according to Las Vegas Review-Journal and is Dr. Steven P. Winkler of Las Vegas, NV. Winkler is the Chief Medical Officer of Nevada-1 DMAT (Disaster Medical Assistance Team). DMATs operate under the direction of the Department of Homeland Security and Winkler is thus what is known as an intermittent federal employee and also serves on a number of professional committees. NV-1 DMAT is also a division of Nevada’s Clark County Emergency Management agency who just prior to the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting, hosted at least one multi-agency mock-mass casualty terrorism response exercise in Las Vegas. CIA code named “MK-ULTRA” “mind control” programs experimented heavily with amnesia-inducing hypnosis, facilitated by certain drugs like Diazepam.
It’s hard to believe that the very doctor who prescribed the shooter with the exact drug his group talked about using, and also staged a “mass-casualty” even prior to the real thing happening, had nothing to do with this massacre. It raises a lot more questions as to who else was involved and exactly what they were trying to accomplish in the long run with this but could answer why the story of this deadly incident seems to have disappeared.
The question of government involvement has come up more than once with one particular tie that Paddock had with government contractors that added a lot to the thickening plot last month. With this tie-in, things are getting even stranger.
If you suspected a government involvement in the scrupulous planning that no average joe is really capable of doing on his own, you were probably right.
The mysterious Stephen Paddock is an average, faceless guy who blends into society despite being rather wealthy. Paddock had several investment properties and apparently at least one private plane which ended up in unusual use after he reportedly sold it to an intelligence contractor who was part of Obama’s administration. While that raises some eyebrows, what else was discovered about this alarming sale pretty much blows the investigation wide open as to why the FBI is protecting and even changing so many facts about this crucial incident that killed 59 Americans and wounded over 500 more.
“A few internet sleuths have taken matters into their own hands after the obvious disinformation campaign by the mainstream media surrounding the Las Vegas shooting,” the Daily Sheeple reported. Before you board the skepticism train the proof is in the information provided on via the FAA. Of course, this isn’t something that CNN will be quick to expose, as it reveals the attack is worse than we thought and may not end with these 59 victims.
Mike Toke is limited to a certain character count in the written portion fo the tweet so his message only says so much. However, he lets the evidence he lays out say far more than what the site limits him to writing. It’s now becoming more clear than ever that the government is hiding the facts from us to protect themselves.

The Daily Sheeple explains what the evidence in this tweet means and is not looking good for Obama’s administration. Not surprisingly, the former president is nowhere to be seen since initially trying to come out as a hero, pushing for gun control, of course.
“Looking closely, the first thing you will notice is that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had a pilot license and owned two planes. This is well-established fact. The tail number of one of those planes is N5343M, a Cirrus SR-20. You can see that this was owned by Paddock by going to the website Flightaware.com. But Paddock doesn’t own this plane anymore. It was grounded three years ago, and it’s now in the hands of none other than Volant LLC, which there is little information on.”
“However, Volant Associates is none other than a Department of Defense contractor. Meaning Paddock’s plane has been in the hands of the United States government for the past three years and grounded since – if Volant LLC is being used as a way to hide information. Considering what Volant Associates does, that wouldn’t be so far fetched. But the plane’s information is all easily verified here on Flightaware.com. It’s been in Roanoke, Virginia since April 25, 2014.”
“Volant’s describes it’s mission on their website as providing ‘the industry’s preeminent professionals to discriminating U.S. government and intelligence-and-defense-industry customers.‘“
“The registration of this plane is also listed as “active” even though it hasn’t been flown in three years. Strange enough yet? Well, it gets even better. The FAA should have this same information. But they don’t. Their website shows that a different aircraft, a Cessna 152, maintains that tail number and it was last registered to a person in San Diego, California. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) is a government agency, and it appears that it has scrubbed this plane’s information. Now, why would they do that? Well, the plot still thickens.”
In the age of the Internet with every reputable business being represented by some kind of a website, it’s strange that a contractor company successful enough to purchase an airplane is practically nowhere to be found online. The only plausible reason for this is something to hide, or perhaps Volant LLC is a cover company for the defense contractor. If so, inquiring minds want to know what they’re trying to hide and why.
Can You See Why This Picture Of Trump On Air Force One Yesterday Has So Many Liberals Upset?
President Trump knows how to tweak liberals and their delicate sensibilities and is quite successful at it, too. Just when the leftists think they have the upper hand on Trump, he ends up masterfully changing their narrative and foiling their plans. We have witnessed President Trump’s tactics as he uses Twitter to convey his message to his supporters on his plans to make America great again. So, the day after the election on Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter to send a message to Americans across the country, and of course it had liberals raging mad.
It does not take much to frustrate liberals. All anyone has to do to win a debate against a leftist is bring facts and logic to the table, and typically they will melt away like snow on a warm day. As liberals are dancing in the street celebrating what they are calling an epic win on Tuesday night, President Trump sucked the wind out of their sails with this amazing tweet.
Yesterday, marked the one year anniversary that President Trump shocked the political world by soundly defeating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race. The day after Trump won the election, the mainstream media puppets were in shock and stunned realizing that “queen” Hillary Clinton lost the election yet again.
The left quickly dissolved into tears, images of faithful Hillary supporters in fetal positions were uploaded onto social media, and protests broke out across the country. For the left, last year at this time was their darkest day, but for conservatives, it was a beacon of hope that we could finally change the course of our country.
President Trump also has not forgotten how impressive his win against Hillary Clinton was and congratulated all of us for rocking the vote in 2016.
Here is more from Washington Examiner:
President Trump marked the one-year anniversary of his election by thanking the “deplorables” who contributed to his “Electoral College landslide victory.”
“Congratulations to all of the ‘DEPLORABLES’ and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!” Trump tweeted, along with a photo of him and his top aides aboard Air Force One flashing thumbs-up signs for the camera.

Included in the photo with Trump are White House communications director Hope Hicks, White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, White House senior adviser and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, personal aide and special assistant to the president John McEntee, and White House social media director Dan Scavino.
Trump defeated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Nov. 8, 2016. Since then, the president has frequently invoked his electoral win over Clinton, who won the popular vote by more than 2.8 million votes.
Now, no one is saying that the election results on Tuesday were not a sober reminder of what work still needs to be done for the 2018 midterm elections, but it was also a day to celebrate.
When Donald Trump announced his presidential bid, the mainstream media, liberals, and even some Republicans scoffed at the very notion of a Trump presidency. As the election grew closer and the reality that Trump could win frightened the political establishment and their panic set in. When Trump beat Hillary Clinton, it sent shock-waves throughout the Beltway as they realized their reign of power was over.
The win was a referendum to liberal leaders that they no longer wanted the status quo and were blatantly rejecting the socialist ideology. Now after a year, the country has become even more divided as these liberal pundits have been busy fanning the flames of division and demonizing President Trump and his supporters.
While the wins on Tuesday were not entirely unexpected, it does send a reminder to all those who plan on running in 2018 that they need to get their act together. The reason that Trump won last year was that he tapped into what the American people were saying and listened to them. The American people are sick and tired of business as usual, and if they do not see the Republicans in the House and Senate start playing tough ball, they will stay home.
President Trump’s YUGE win last year was unprecedented, and it would be a shame to let that historic win fall to the wayside by allowing RINO’s to stay in office. This is our time to take our country back from the liberal progressives who have been ruining it for the last eight years, and we cannot let President Trump down.
