Some Quick Thoughts On The News

As information on the terrorist in NYC emerges you can see the President reacting, unlike most past office holders who remained quiet. Trump views himself as the everyman, on saying what he feels. The MSM loves it because it gives them a chance to go after him. We could be wrong but we think most Americans like it when he goes after the evil doers.

Now watch the MSM and Democrat politicians like Cuomo, Deblasio, and Schumer turn on him, as they did yesterday. All three in their press conference said Trump’s words were harmful, and they defended the “diversity lottery”.

Before this is over the MSM and Dems will be arguing this is Trump’s fault. After all it was him that went after ISIS and they have to fight back. Think about that logic. What would they propose we do with people that want to kill us?

On Taxes: Today we’ll see the details on the plan the press and liberals have said is a tax cut for the rich. Think about this. The MSM has been so negative on the plan (without details) that the WSJ had this poll result:
“35% think the tax proposal that Republicans plan to release this week is a bad idea, and 40% had no opinion or were unsure”. When do people think tax cuts are bad? When the MSM tells you it is without details.

We’ll see but here’s some thoughts:
We think there will be a 39.5% bracket.
If there is a deduction for 401ks we think it will be replaced by no income limits on Roths. That is a replacement that we would sign up for in a second, but the media will make a negative.
On State and Local Taxes look for some compromise to try and win votes.
We think the mortgage deduction will stay in place.

Did You See?

The senate grilling tech officials from Facebook, Google and Twitter Tuesday on missed signals of Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 presidential race? They said the Russians ran some false ads on these medium and it could have influenced the election.
It’s a good thing we have a fair and non biased MSM that ran it’s reporting 50/50 or who knows what could have happened.

North Korea

Did you notice this quieted down some? Why do you think? Here’s some information from the WSJ that will shed some light on the continued pressure from this administration. The MSM wouldn’t want to share too much:

Trump administration officials eager to choke off North Korea’s global networks, have in recent days urged Persian Gulf countries to clamp down harder on the nuclear-armed state’s ties to the region. The Trump administration and Japanese officials have urged Gulf states in recent weeks to stop using North Korean labor and comply with U.N. sanctions on Pyongyang to tighten the screws on North Korea.

In addition three U.S. aircraft carriers are scheduled to be traveling near the Korean Peninsula soon, and the military may decide to keep them in the area for maneuvers that would coincide with President Trump’s upcoming visit to Asia, U.S. defense officials said. Mr. Trump leaves at the end of the week for a two-week trip that will take him to Japan, South Korea.

You think Kim Jung Un knows this President means business? You think maybe China is reacting with pressure on N.Korea for the same reason?
