KANSAS CITY DEBATE OVER PREZ TRUMP 2020 INTENSIFIES AMID FED RATE CUT CRISIS, IRAN THREAT AND UAW STRIKE!!!



As we slouch toward 2020, Prez Trump remains the focus of pretty much all political discourse at its heart.

Two divergent opinions and/or news:

Newsweek: Donald Trump's Approval Rating Surpasses Obama's, Not Just On Rasmussen Reports

OR

Esquire: The President* Doesn't Know Anything About Anything, But He Can Feel Things Slipping

A very smart TKC Reader offers economic perspective that gives us a bigger picture of the world to come . . .

The Fed Open Market Committee cut rates another 0.25 point as expected, but their house is divided with 3 members dissenting.

The vote was 7-3 in favor of the move, with the majority of dissenters demonstrating a more hawkish bias. Kansas City Fed President Esther George and Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren favored leaving rates unchanged. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard favored cutting rates more deeply by 50 basis points.

In 1987, the Fed cut 0.75 points following the market crash.

In 1998, the Fed cut 0.75 points following the Russian default and Long Term Capital Management (LTCM) implosion.

Now in 2019, the Fed cut 0.25 point on July 31,may cut another 0.25 point on September 18, then leaving only the October 30 and December 11 meetings into year-end.

And so we ask our evening TKC BLOG COMMUNITY denizens . . .

WILL PREZ TRUMP STAY WINNING OR LOSE SUPPORT AMID UPCOMING HARSH TIMES?!?

Hurts me to say this but after all is said and done, he was still better option than Hillary.

^^^^ OUCH.

MAGA KC said...

And still it's obvious there's not any democrat out there who can beat him. Sorry KC, lots of complaining for nothing.

Biden/Warren will wipe him out of office. Sorry MAGA boys!

Jonsie said...

Any decent 3rd party candidate out there. I bet there are probably a lot of people in KC who would be willing to write-in Clay Chastain for President at this point.

Justin Trudeau in brown face said...

Just as much of a waste of a vote as anything else ^^

Fuck Unions and their entitled pussy dues paying members!! - you snowflakes young or old are a bunch of whiney ass bitches! You spoiled fucks make more than most and you can say that was your union that made that happen for you, but there are many companies out there that are not union and their employees make as much as you the same or better benifits than you! I was apart of a union for 10 years, and all a union is for the most part is a protection to keep your job when you dont do your job. I did my job and my union sold our dues members out for the union gain and not the members - FUCK UNIONS and FUCK YOU if you are apart of one!!!! If you strike you are a pussie - get back to work you lazy mother fuckers. And GM, strike all you want I dont buy your shit products anyway! BTW your CEO makes 22 MILLION a year, go after that greedy bitch and not the possibility to damage the US economy when you strike! If we have a recession the masses will blame you mother fuckers for being the true pussies you are! Be a proud American and get back to fucking work!

Trump is the only citizen president this country has had since Andrew Jackson. The politicians will never let this happen again. We better get behind him while we can.

Cray Occasional-Cortex tweeted she supports the striking UAW workers, that she says are courageous to strike "for the dignified work they deserve", and that "in a time of record profits, workers should prosper, not suffer". WTF?! What about her Greed New Deal, and blaming vehicles that burn fossil fuels for big damage to the environment?

Oh, nevermind. The Bronx bartender warns we have only about ten years until cow farts, having kids, and mowing suburban lawns causes enough "climate change" to END THE WORLD!

Warren should be in jail for fraud this fucking idiot Biden has never done one fucking thing in four decades besides pick up a paycheck every Friday and run every money scam he can it makes one wonder what kind of deranged leftist idiot would vote for these fucking idiots. It’s blatantly obvious none of these grade schoolers cant even run a bake sale

THE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will NOT be returning to KS, to run for the U.S. Senate.

As of now, the Democratic Party has no candidate who would beat Trump in 2020.
Biden is a brain-damaged retread who first ran for President in 1988. Even Obama won't endorse him. He'll enjoy his farewell tour a little longer before dropping out "to spend more time with family."
Sanders is an angry old Socialist, running again to make some more money (book deals) and take a payoff from the DNC.
Warren is an angry old white lady, stealing some thunder from Crazy Bernie, but no one would feel safe with her occupying the Oval Office.
Kamala Harris (the eventual nominee) will be thrust forward in Spring 2020 and has the support of Team Clinton and Team Obama. Problem is, she's not African-American, she's married to a White Jewish attorney, as CA Attorney General she was harsh on minorities, and she likes to cackle like a witch. She'll give Trump a fight, but she won't win.

Attack On Saudi Oil Assets - regardless of who actually launched the attack, the Trump Administration has publicly stated that it was an Iranian act of war. That means President Trump MUST respond, or be guilty of repeating his own "red-line" criticism of Obama's failure to act in Syria. Trump will likely keep his military strike options in-play over the coming months, ready to greenlight an attack if the economy and political polls indicate he's slipping. If you don't think the nation will wave the flag and chant "USA, USA" when the bombs fly, you need to go back and review history. Military intervention in the months leading up to the election is the President's Trump Card (pun intended).

@9:35, I fail to see how you can call an elitist, irreligious, immoral draft dodging whoremonger a "citizen President"!

You, sir or madam, dishonor the memory of Andrew Jackson by even mentioning his name in connection with Donald John Trump.

@9:51, not everyone agrees with you...

Saudi Arabia should fight their own wars, which they won’t, or pay us an absolute fortune to protect them and their great wealth- $ trillion

I read today the average pay for GM workers is $90k. And they only pay 3% of their health care premiums. WTF are they bitching about? Pretty good pay for mediocre skills. And can't make a truck that isnt a rust bucket in 10 years. American build Toyota's FTW!
See how many GM vehicles are needed for the dems new green deal. Careful what you vote for.

You can't support Trump's MAGA cheerleading about keeping good paying manufacturing jobs and be against the UAW members at the same time.

Pick a side.

Are you for good wages for the middle class or not?

Fuckin' hypocrites.

Trump seriously doesn't get what the Fed does or why they do it. And neither do most of the posters on this forum.

There is no foreign policy for this administration. Unless you count alienating all our allies and sucking up to dictators as foreign policy. Saudi Arabia can deal with their own shit. The US does not need to help them. The lack of response/care from any other countries on the planet to the "Saudis 9/11" is telling. There's 0 credibility in this administration so no one is going to believe a word that comes from it.
