    The follow-up to this story...

    Trump also delivered a combative speech in July 2017 calling gang members "animals" and praising law enforcement for being "rough."
    In January, Trump held a listening session on prison reform with Republican lawmakers and reform advocates in attendance. CNN reported at the time that Jared Kushner, senior adviser to the President and Trump's son-in-law, was spearheading the White House prison reform push.
    The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Kushner's interest in prison reform is in tension, however, with the tough-on-crime mentality of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The contrast in the two approaches to criminal justice has, in turn, "left both Democratic and Republican lawmakers confused and has contributed to skepticism that the Trump administration is serious about its own proposals," the Times reported.

    How is it that this stoopid (yeah I know) person has a job at all? She's supposed to be offering a bit of objective journalism, yet omit salient contraindicators to her proposal. WHY? Oh yeah, it would totally kill her supposed brilliant idea. It literally took me less than 30 seconds to research this. Please do not tell me that she could not have done the same thing!

    Love the graph, so let's take a look at it. Let's focus on that area where it shows a 2012 median income of $54,596. Notice anything? Well, just in case you didn't, the graph, your proof, shows an upward swing towards where it was in 2017. Who was President during that time? Nuff said!

    While I'm at it let's do a fact check on the blow-hard's assertions on "black" unemployment.

    Yep, sure did and didn't that certain someone also tell you that this is how recessions are built? Let me make this real simple by asking you this...

    What happens when you spend more money than you're taking in?

    This just might be happening as we move from baby boomers to Millennials. Our generation certainly bitched and griped over funding new stadiums but in the end the funding came through. Millennials' are different in dealing with this type of thing. I don't believe that they are in any mood as a group, interested in funding play houses for billionaires. This becomes abundantly clear if you examine why Nike agreed to then aired the Kaepernick commercial. The NFL is on the wrong side in that instance and may soon discover beyond the Oakland to L.A. move, that they are on the wrong side of public financing for future projects.

    BTW: I have a much better idea and it wouldn't cost the NFL more than the cost of a telephone call.. Want to know what it is?....All anyone has to do is ask me!

    what does calling MS 13 animals (which they are ) and praising law enforcement for being rough have to do with his offer and why the press didnt report it

    what does this have to do with mrs johnson being released at the behest of kayne west and kim kardasian

    they did what he asked for and they got results

    the nfl players didnt even move

    nor did obama even come up with that as a solution . and he had 8 yrs , trump had at the time 16 months

    While I agree with you that tax cuts for the middle class doesn't cause them (recessions) I totally disagree when those tax cuts go to people who don't need them in hope that an economic theory (trickle down) that's been proven time and again a failure will somehow work. It won't!

    Yes, world events play a part, but the unmistaken driver is as you've stated, poor investment, otherwise known as tax cuts for the more affluent not only cause them but are the determinant factor in how long they last.

    I know that Ronald Reagan was perhaps THE favorite republican president of a generation of people. His mantra was "tax cuts," "tax cuts," "tax cuts,' and his followers bought into this, some still in this day believing that it worked are selling this nonsense to the ill-informed. Well, it didn't work, in fact, Reagan's reality was that he had to Raise Taxes 7 times during his presidency and cut programs in order to pay for that BS imagery and failed economic theory.

    What followed was more of the same when Bush the 1st, famously touted..."Read my lips, no new taxes." Remember how he became a traitor to the cause when he too realized that taxes had to be raised? It's economics 101 man!

    Will do! but let's be clear, facts are facts, sources don't really matter, unless you believe that ONLY right wing stats are honest. If so, Houston, we have a problem!

    I have to admit, this was a tough assignment, I chalk it up to conservative writers and number counters are reluctant to approach this subject because the numbers don't favor their POV. Oh well, here you go! (Did you honestly think that I wouldn't accept the challenge?)

    Sarah Sanders bizarre Trump, Obama black jobs, employment ...
    https://www.businessinsider.com/sarah-sanders-bizarre-trump-obama...

    Truth is so-called "Black" unemployment has only fell 1.5 percent since Trump took office: Again simple math...

    7.8 (when Obama left office)
    6.3 (since Trump took office)
    _______________________
    1.5 (percent drop) Here are the Stats you've asked for:

    Bureau of Labor Statistics Data
    https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000006


    In fact he's been touting himself as the reason for this for some time now, WHAT A FUCKING LIAR!!

    IN the war no. But we most certainly already know from certain posters, if the NEWS comes from an outlet branded by the Right as MSM... then it is apparently all fake news. By the same token, if it comes from Fox, Brietfart or the Blaze or some other right leaning outlet.. .well then its fair and unbiased.
