If you listen to the mainstream media, you would think our nation is falling apart at the seams, and our president is on the verge of impeachment. Well, just what are the facts?
The Trump Economy-
Our economy has taken off.
261,000 jobs were created in October.
24,000 manufacturing jobs were filled at this time.
Unemployment is at a 17 year low.
Consumer confidence is at a 17 year high.
Over one million fewer Americans are relying on food stamps, the best numbers in over 7 years.
The homeowners rate has risen in the last quarter.
More people are in the work force than 7 years ago.
The stock market is doing very well.
Donald Trump has promised to make our economy great two years ago, and that is exactly what has happened.
Rush Limbaugh: Trump Not Getting Enough Credit for Booming Economy

If you look at the latest round of approval polls for President Donald Trump, you would think we’re looking at one of the least popular presidents of all time. If these polls are to be believed, Trump is spiraling down the drain to some of the worst job approval ratings any president has ever seen. And, to be clear, we fully believe that these polls are (relatively) accurate. Yes, they may be weighted to this degree or that one, but we have no problem believing that the majority of Americans strongly disapprove of Trump’s presidency. Why would they? The mainstream media’s coverage of Trump has been like one long highway car crash since January. Garbage in, garbage out, as they say.
And it is garbage, make no mistake about that.
On his program Tuesday, radio host Rush Limbaugh noted that if Americans were getting the truth about Trump’s presidency and, in particular, its effect on the economy, those poll numbers might look quite a lot different. But Limbaugh argued that Trump is in no way getting the credit he should be getting for the economic boom.
“I’m gonna shoot you straight here,” Limbaugh said. “Donald Trump’s not getting nearly the credit he deserves for the performance of the U.S. economy. You talk about a rebound? I mean, where was it 10 months ago? Where was it a year ago? Where was it during the seven years of Obama? Remember they were trying to tell us that we had to adapt to a new reality, and that is an America in decline? We had to adapt to these things because America’s past had been not real. Our economic heft and our superpower status was largely undeserved.
“But now it was time to pay the piper and find out how the rest of the world – that we have been trampling all over – lives,” he continued. “And Trump, of course, has reversed thinking; he has reversed performance; there is confidence among consumers. They’re spending. Jobs have been created.”
The problem here – in addition to the media’s disdain for Trump – is that the American people have been sold a lie for the last six years that told us that Obama had rescued us from the recession and all of the accompanying crap. Americans didn’t really BUY that, of course – the proof was in last year’s election, if nothing else – but it’s a story the media is sticking to even to this day. And so they can’t exactly turn around and give Trump credit for this huge recovery…because they’ve been telling us the economy recovered long before Trump came into office. It’s fake news on top of fake news.
But numbers don’t lie, and eventually the media’s fiction will catch up to them. Americans are going to start noticing the economic boom with or without the media’s help, and – like every president before him – Trump will get the credit. Oh, the left really doesn’t want that to happen. Sadly for them, there’s nothing they can do about it.
Record breaking disasters are becoming the new normal in America. Prior to this past weekend, no one would mention a fifty inch rain except as a joke. It is labeled as a storm that would happen once in every five hundred years. We feel unbelievable sorrow over those who have lost everything. Children without shoes, people without clothing, the loss of all of their belongings, and the shock of everything as it slowly sinks in. We applaud the incredible heroism and sacrifice of the many who place themselves in harms way. Fishermen, who use their boats and at great personal risk, pursue the thousands who are in life threatening situations. We feel awful about the police officer who perished doing the same. We appreciate the Texans and the American spirit, of making the best out of seemingly impossible situations. I noticed that a great many of the volunteers had crosses around their necks – absolutely no surprise to me.
But I ask, could this disaster have been averted? Yes, I believe so. …And I am not talking about building stronger dikes and dams. The old adage remains true: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We just had a president (Barack Hussein Obama) who trampled on our Judeo Christian heritage, through displaying rainbow colors on the White House, thus revealing his approval for the LGBT (and now Q has been added) life style. He approves of “gay marriages” and many other perverse unions that are referred to in the Bible as “abominations.” We have aborted nearly sixty million babies and wonder why the next generation will lack a labor force to keep our nation running. We could continue “world without end,” with our nations’ trespasses, but you already know them… But, you may think, isn’t the idea that the Lord God would allow such atrocities to happen as He judges our nation, going too far? No, I do not think so. Entire civilizations have disappeared, and they were judged for doing far lesser trespasses. I believe there are still many, many Christian people in this nation who are doing His will, and that may be one of the reasons that the Lord is holding off our countries’ entire destruction. Do you still believe it is going too far to suggest that the unprecedented weather tragedies in the last sixteen years are the Lord’s chastening of America?
Consider II Chronicles 7 below. All the climate events were His chastening tools upon the nation of Israel. We are quick to isolate II Chronicles 7:14, and quote this scripture, yet we often overlook how the Lord changes our weather patterns when we rebel against Him. [Do you remember Elijah? Following his prayers to the Lord, and his confrontation with King Ahab, Israel received no rain or dew for three years, until Baalism was confronted and their false prophets killed. Also mentioned in the Bible are God’s judgment tools of locust invasions, the ten plagues upon the Egyptians, and countless other scenarios.] II Chronicles 7:14 is highlighted in red, while II Chronicles 7:13, 20, 21, all pertaining to God’s hand in the weather and their punishment through captivity are highlighted in blue.

2 Chronicles 7 King James Version (KJV)
Dedication Of The Temple
1 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the house.
2 And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house.
3 And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
4 Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the Lord.
5 And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
6 And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of the Lord, which David the king had made to praise the Lord, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
7 Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the Lord: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.
8 Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt.
9 And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
10 And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the Lord had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
11 Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord, and the king’s house: and all that came into Solomon’s heart to make in the house of the Lord, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.
12 And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.
13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
17 And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;
18 Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.
19 But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;
20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
21 And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the Lord done thus unto this land, and unto this house?
22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.
