…that within three years of Donald Trump’s election we would see this:

The Planned Parenthood abortion business announced today it will officially withdraw from the Title X program — costing it $60 million in taxpayer funds because it refuses to follow a new Trump administration rule that requires it to segment out its abortion business from legitimate health care if it wants federal funding under the program.

Because the abortion giant is withdrawing from Title X, the $60 million in taxpayer dollars i received annually can be redistributed to groups that engage in legitimate women’s health care.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals late Friday rejected a request from more than 20 states, Planned Parenthood and the American Medical Association to block new pro-life rules that Planned Parenthood is refusing to follow. Leading pro-life groups have praised the Trump administration for prioritizing women’s health ahead of abortion.

…they would have called you at best delusional and at worst insane.

Let’s also remember that before this Planned Parenthood funding was saved by a Republican Senate that had the chance to defund them but refused to do so, leaving it up to President Trump to do the heavy lifting.

 

 

The best thing about Wishing Someone Dead is you are Guaranteed that Eventually Your wish will come True

Every now and again I re-watch the election 2016 coverage from all the various networks, including the Canadian and British Networks.  It is very instructive.

Once they reached the stage of the night when they realized that Trump was going to win unless the Democrat fraud machine (which thought it had the night off because of the expected blowout) could manufacture enough votes to win in the states they hadn’t called yet (why do you think so many remained uncalled for so long?) every single network started pushing the Dow Futures.

Go to any channel, any network and you had liberals telling everyone that the election of Donald Trump was likely going to be an economic catastrophe and that the drop of the futures was just the beginning. In the New York Times the paper of record for the left Paul Krugman started his piece thus:

It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover?

Frankly, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty. The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear.

Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.

Stock Market Close Nov 8th 2016: 18,332.74 Stock Market close Aug 20th 2019: 25962.44 That’s a gain of over 41%. Or to put it another way , if the Stock market dropped 1500 points between now and Nov 6th 2019 that would mean that the Down Jones still managed a 10% gain every year since the Day Donald Trump was elected.

In fact he didn’t just stop at the Stock Market here is his close

So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.

Well in fairness to Mr. Krugman as the New York Post reports he wasn’t alone in this

Well it’s almost three years later, and another election is coming up and the same media that was heartbroken over President Trump’s win is out to beat him this time, so what is the mantra, RecessionRecession, Recession! In fact these guys aren’t just predicting it they’re wishing for it.

Now let’s face it wishing for a recession is like wishing for someone to die, or wishing for Tom Brady to no longer be the Patriots QB, sooner or later it will come.

But if you’re going to start worrying about a recession based on these same guys who were predicting economic doom in 2-16 I’m sorry I’m not going to jump on that bandwagon and if you feel tempted to do the same just rewatch this video of the smartest people in the world predicting the future three years ago.

So you’ll forgive me if I don’t jump on the pessimism bandwagon and suggest you refrain from doing the same, and if you need to be reminded why you shouldn’t watch this
