Manufacturing Output Notched a Solid 1.1% Increase in December
The December numbers for industrial production were better than expected. Prior to the report, we knew that the production component of the ISM index fell in December to 54.3 and while that is still in expansion territory, it marked the slowest pace of production growth since 2016.
The 1.1% pick-up in manufacturing output was not only the fastest sequential increase in 10 months, it was more than three times larger than the scant 0.3% expected by the consensus of economic genius’. This category comprises a little less than three quarters of all industrial production and even among the various components, there was broad-based strength. Wells-Fargo
January 2019 Manufacturing Business Outlook Survey Reports Continued Growth
The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia released its January 2019 Manufacturing Business Outlook Survey and reports manufacturing activity in the region continued to grow. The survey’s broad indicators remain positive though movement was mixed.
Producer prices fell 0.2% in December amid lower energy costs, core readings suggest the trend in inflation remains little changed. Wells Fargo
January 2019 Empire State Manufacturing Survey Reports Slight Growth
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York released its January 2019 Empire State Manufacturing Survey and reports business activity grew slightly in New York State according to firms responding to the survey.

The Wells Fargo Housing Market Index rose 2 points in January as a significant decline in mortgage rates helped reverse the prior two months decline.

Let Those Who Create Problems, Suffer their Consequences
Why don’t we try something new in our government: When it becomes necessary to shut the government down for political reasons, let us STOP paying our Congressmen and women and our Senators. THEY create the shutdown, let THEM cease to be paid. Why do the innocent citizens of our great country needlessly suffer for a situation which is no fault of their own? Answer: they should NOT suffer. Those who create the problem should. Better yet, instead of the excessive partisanship, why not legislate in a bi-partisan manner for the good of the country and her citizenry?
The short answer is, they cannot. These are the so called “elites” for whom it is beneficial to keep the lower classes, well, lower. They don’t want us earning or learning, more than what THEY deem necessary or appropriate.
Citizenship Question Blocked on 2020 Census
On Tuesday a Federal judge in New York (go figure) ruled that the Trump administration is not allowed to ask about citizenship in the 2020 census. WHAT??? Why not? Should we or should we not know who is here legally and who is not? Unconstitutional? What IS unconstitutional is foreigners coming here illegally and living off the backs of the American taxpayer. Fuck the liberals and the ship they came in on. They are hell bent on ruining this country.
Now comes…toxic masculinity…to continue the wussification of the American male. What will you do without masculinity? These liberals and leftists have lost their minds. They are hell-bent on destruction: Don’t behave like a man, pee in the girl’s room, play badminton with your girlie friends, not sure of your gender? Have your penis chopped off and replace it with a vagina…all this nonsense while they encourage women to fight on the front lines, remove their vagina and replace it with a penis, pee in the men’s room, play football, whatever. I am nearly 68 and in total horror of the America which will be left to my children and grandchildren and theirs after them. This is all morally wrong, plain and simple.
White Supremacy & Racism
White supremacy, does anyone believe it exists to the extent the left presents it? Yes, the KKK exists but they are such a minority they are almost a non-entity. The President of the United States a white supremacist? Where is there any proof of this and from where do the lies come? They conjure it up out of nowhere, from any word or action however than can twist the meaning to fit their narrative.
Racism; does it exist, yes, but, if you are listening and paying attention you know there are just as many black racists, if not more, who are quite vocal about their racist attitudes. Farrakhan, reverend Wright (Obama’s mentor), Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters. They all hate white folks… and Jews. Even the icon Lebron James, railed against the Jews only a week or so ago and then painted the NFL owners as slave owners. All this bullshit is bred and advanced by the leftists and liberals. Their agenda is to divide us, to make us weak and unable to think and do for ourselves and our families.
Now, that bitch Nancy Pelosi wants the president to delay his State of the Union Address until the shutdown is ended, saying the security is not adequate. It’s a lie like most words that come out of her mouth. Homeland Security denounced her position as bullshit, that security is more than adequate. Just a political ploy, an unsuccessful one at that. Resist, obstruct. It is all they do.
Maxine Waters (living in a $3,000,000.00 home on her meager salary) is going to target White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, over his previous role as the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which is a Democrat ally created by Obama. It should have been dismantled while the idiot Richard Cordray was running it, or not created at all. A waste of our money, and now she is going to waste more time and money on her folly against the president and his administration.

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
