    Kind of hard to pick a subject and stick with it, I know

    Trump Just Got Re-Elected

    I’m the guy who predicted a Trump victory against all odds in the 2016 election. I also predicted a “Trump Miracle” for the economy. I called Trump “Reagan Part Deux.” Here’s my new prediction: President Trump guaranteed his re-election this week.

    To be fair, others predicted a Trump victory early on. Scott Adams who draws Dilbert was an early believer and got a lot of grief. Ann Coulter was ridiculed savagely when she did this in 2015:



    Not trying to take away from Wayne Allyn Root's prediction. But to call himself "the guy who predicted a Trump victory" misses others who did and caught hell for it. Can't say if it was deliberate or an oversight. So I'll go with the latter.

    Liberals have got to be sick to their stomachs. No matter what they do or say, no matter how hard they try to distract us from the truth about the booming economy, “The Trump Miracle” shines through.

    I was going to write this column about the Trump administration’s war with California, illegal immigration and liberal politicians serving as “lookouts” for illegal felons. It’s time to set an example. It’s time to enforce the rule of law. This move is cheered by middle class Americans sick of being treated like second class citizens. Brilliant. But this topic will have to wait.

    Then I decided to write this column about Trump’s new trade tariffs on steel and aluminum, backed on stage at the White House by cheering blue collar steel and aluminum workers. Trump kept his campaign promise to fight for American workers and American jobs. His move was cheered equally by Democrat Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and liberal Silicon Valley billionaire Elon Musk. Trump just won the votes of millions of working class Americans. This is not your father’s GOP. Brilliant. But this topic will have to wait.

    Although I will make a prediction here. Trump exempted Mexico from his tariffs- for now. Why? I predict Trump will demand Mexico either pay for the wall, or be hit with the 25% steel tariff. One way or another Mexico will pay for Trump’s wall! Brilliant.

    Then I decided to write this column about Trump’s remarkable breakthrough with Kim Jong Un of North Korea. First Little Kim announced he wanted to discuss nuclear disarmament. Then he shocked the world by inviting President Trump to meet in-person. Trump accepted. Trump’s blustery taunts and intimidation tactics WORKED. “The Art of the Deal.” Trump pulled off what no other modern U.S. President could. But this topic will also have to wait.

    Because the new job numbers just came out. I almost jumped through the roof. The Trump economy is exploding. In the end, this is what matters. Americans always vote with their pocketbooks. The economy is booming like nothing seen since Reagan.

    I coined the phrase “The Trump Miracle” to describe the remarkable results of Trump economic policies- including dramatically lower taxes and regulations. The newly released numbers make me look subtle.

    The Trump economy added a resounding 313,000 jobs in February, crushing expectations of 205,000. It was the biggest “beat versus expectations” in almost a decade! And to top it off, December job growth was revised upwards

    from 160,000 to 175,000 and January from 200,000 to 239,000.

    The number of employed Americans rose to 155,215,000- the highest in history. The number of black Americans employed hit an all-time record high of 19,087,000. And a record 72,530,000 women were employed. The 4.9% unemployment rate of Hispanic workers is right at all-time lows too.

    I remember when I wrote at Fox News way back in 2015 that Donald Trump would be the greatest president for blacks, Hispanics, women and gays ever- simply because he would create the most black jobs, Hispanic jobs, women’s jobs and gay jobs. Bingo! http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/07/02/donald-trump-first-hispanic-president.html

    But I saved the really great news for last. The Trump economy added a total of 1,0006,000 jobs in February- the biggest gain this century! That number included an amazing, eye-popping 729,000 full-time jobs. Not the crappy part-time jobs of the Obama era, but real, quality, high-paying, middle class American jobs. That is one of the highest totals of full-time jobs in U.S. economic history.

    A new Axios/Survey Monkey poll came out before all this amazing news. It showed that if the 2018 election were held today, five Democrat incumbent U.S. Senators in West Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota, Montana and Indiana would be defeated decisively. And three more in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin are leading by only single digits. The voters in this poll didn’t know about the new jobs numbers or the North Korea breakthrough.

    Trump has changed politics. The GOP is going to pick up seats in the 2018 midterm elections. Then Trump is headed for a landslide re-election.

    He's also not the first to make that prediction. I forget the circumstances, but I recall someone saying pretty much the same thing 2-3 months ago, albeit I can't remember if the word "landslide" was used.

    The DemocRATs claim they had a "blue wave" in Texas the other day. I defy you to look at the final results and show me how the left's turnout was anything more than tokenism. Sure there were a small number of races where the left showed some strength. But there were more than that where there wasn't any opposition in one party or the other, so those are meaningless when making "wave" claims.

    The only "blue wave" I've seen from the left looks more like Tidy Bowl to me:



    I don't see a big gain for them this fall. As hard as establishment GOPe people will fight to lose, I don't think they can.

    That doesn't mean sit back and let it happen. First off, too many sitting back will ensure illegals and dead people will decide the outcomes. But it's also important to try to make the final result so overwhelming that the liberals get a good idea of just how much they are despised and not trusted.

    I know there wasn't a huge turnout, for some reason, here in Bell County Texas, but the Repubs had 18,897 votes cast, and the Dems had 7,440....It didn't seem like a blue wave in my county... Very Happy

    Looking at the chart it's easy to see the left was overwhelmed. In several races you can add all lefty votes together, then add all GOP votes together and the number of non-DemocRAT voters was more than double those on the other side.

    3 state legislative seats changed hands. In most other races since 2016 there might be a seat here or there move to the left, several places the left kept seats they already had, etc. They're calling that a "wave" although they didn't call it that when a couple of thousand seats changed hands the other direction between 2010 and 2016.

    The air will be filled all year with "inevitable" claims and polls showing high likelihood of seats moving leftward. Just like they did in the case of a certain satanist during the 2016 presidential election. Sometimes they'll be right due to sheer numbers of elections. Mostly they'll be wrong. And if things keep moving along in the direction that's best for the country, they'll be way off on the total outcome because many more seats will move from left to right than is expected.
