THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!

I got back from the podiatrist in time to catch the tail end of the Shrieking Harridans and a news clip of Beeto O’Roflmao saying we need to replace Trump to “get the economy back on track.”

WTF is he talking about? We have the best economy in 50 years, maybe ever. But not if you listen to the Democrats and the media (BIRM).

Newsbusters:

On Monday, all three network morning shows kept rooting for recession as a way to harm President Trump’s 2020 reelection chances. Hosts and correspondents dismissed the White House “attempting to downplay growing concerns that the U.S. economy could be headed for a recession” while touting Democrats “seizing the moment.”

“Pushing back. President Trump downplays fears the economy is on the slide,” co-host Savannah Guthrie announced at the top of NBC’s Today show. Minutes later, fellow co-host Craig Melvin introduced a report by proclaiming: “President Trump is attempting to downplay growing concerns that the U.S. economy could be headed for a recession.”

Chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson repeated the mantra: “Yeah, a lot of eyes watching to see how Wall Street does this week, but even in the face of some economic warning signs, the President and his top aides are now brushing off fears of a recession down the road.” She continued: “The President projecting positivity after a week on Wall Street that was anything but….He’s downplaying a key indicator that often signals an economic downturn, with the stock market on shaky ground, in part because of the trade war with China.”

Later in the segment, Jackson made it clear where she was getting her talking points from: “The President’s hoping a healthy economy will help him win come Election Day, but some Democrats, hoping to replace him, argue it’s Americans getting hurt by his policies.” A soundbite ran of South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg complaining: “He is completely out of touch with the impact it’s going to have on the prices we pay for our goods as a result of a trade war in which both sides will lose.”

Leading off ABC’s Good Morning America, fill-in co-host Cecilia Vega declared: “Also this morning, recession and re-election. President Trump insisting he has no concerns about the economy after that 800-point plunge. As his 2020 opponents fire back, saying the President is terrible for business.”

Teeing up the report minutes later, fellow co-host George Stephanopoulos announced: “We’re going to go to the White House, where President Trump and his economic team are trying to tamp down talk of a possible recession after a volatile week on Wall Street and an escalating trade war with China.”

Correspondent Terry Moran eagerly portrayed the President being on “defense” over the supposed economic warning signs: “And as you know, presidents get the credit when the economy is good, they get the blame when the economy’s bad. And right now, with some signs of economic weakness and the markets growing anxious, President Trump is playing defense.”

The reporter hyped: “For Trump, the political stakes couldn’t be higher. His campaign’s main argument is how well he’s managed the economy.” He then turned to 2020 Democrats who “now sense the President may be vulnerable on his signature issue.” Clips followed of Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg pretending the economy was in recession already. “We have got to replace him in office if we’re going to get this economy back on track,” O’Rourke claimed. Buttigieg asserted: “Pretty much nothing the Trump administration says turns out to be true. So if they’re saying the economy’s in great shape, I would be very, very worried.”

As an afterthought, Moran acknowledged: “Now, it’s important to note there’s still plenty of good news on the economy. It’s still growing, it’s producing jobs, consumers are spending.” Though he still warned: “But politically for President Trump, this is the whole ball game. And so, any clouds on the horizon are worrisome for him and his campaign.”

CBS This Morning was more measured in its coverage, with correspondent Chip Reid pointing out: “The U.S. economy has been a bright spot for Donald Trump’s presidency. He’s overseen a flourishing job market, with a nearly 50-year-low unemployment rate and a generally strong stock market.” However, he then worried: “But last week, the Dow plunged 800 points in one day, the biggest single-day drop of the year, as investors forecast concerns with the global economy. The White House is now working to project calm.”

If the economy is “flourishing,” why would the White House need to “project calm”?

I even heard a talking head say that consumer confidence is down. Well no shit. The news media keeps harping about a recession and, as crazy as it might sound, some people believe them. If they convince enough people that the economy is bad they could actually trigger a recession.

A recession they would blame on Trump.

Yes, the stock market dropped quite a bit last week. But it is still way ahead of where it was when Trump was elected. But according to the Democrats, Obama had a better economy than Trump. They also claim that Trump is not responsible for our economic boom. They claim Obama built that.

Anyhoo, happy Monday. My ass hurts because the podiatrist gave me a shot of some antibiotic. Okay, he didn’t give me the shot, his nurse did. His male nurse. At least I didn’t have to drop trou for the cute female nurse.

    There was a guy on Shrieking Harridans that was showing how to make tostadas. He pronounced “tostada” the Spanish way. Junk-in-the-trunk Navarro chimes in with “If you talk that way they might put you on the other side of the wall.”

    I have this life long friend who is a bit of a poggie. She had really bad cold like frigid parents. She was rich when we were kids. She lived in an estate. I lived in a converted chicken coop. Bathroom was outside in a shed. I didn’t do second or sixth grade. I had had multiple open heart surgeries. I was meant to be dumb. I should be at best retarded. Blue baby. I just skipped grades. I went to Purdue because I got an engineering scholarship . My great grandfather had been a train engineer. I thought I was going to learn how to drive. Fuck me I have always wanted to just go to sleep.
    I was four and all the wires broke free. I was ripped apart from the inside. Everything is so strange. One side of my sternum is one half an inch higher than the other. I have a big fucking scar on my throat. I had to learn how to talk from a hole. I was not given a pass. My ankles, my groin, my throat, my chest. Scars. My heart is teflon and pig valves.
    My own mother did not talk to me once in 20 years because I was gay.i lived. Just so funny one day this woman hugged me and said I looked like her friend Monty with better eyes. I do have a set but her name was Elizabeth.. I think she won a few Academy Awards.
    Gayle had to live in this impossible world. Two of her brothers committed suicide. I was born broken in so many ways. I have this child. She is a setter. Voleyball. I sit outside to the wee hours practicing. She is beyond good. We have a story. I do not ever want bill de blasio or an Elizabeth Warren assuming control of kids.

    The constant drum beat of doom and glum is having an effect. A few days ago I was driving and listening to a local sports talk show. They were discussing NFL and NBA salary negotiations and wondered how the “recession” was going to impact players expectations. WTF??

    • lateblum says:

      It’s part of the plan to infiltrate all aspects of news with negative references to economy, race relations, stereotyping, etc. I read about that a couple days ago. I thought it wasn’t going to start until later, but I guess they’re in a hurry to contaminate our minds.

      72 … 70 when hubby is away or asleep.

      • Mothy67 says:

        Titus is an idiot. It depends on the size and something called the weather outside. It can be cheaper and more efficient to keep a steady temp. Has the scrunt never paid an electric bill?.Did she pass 5 th grade math? It is cheaper to keep my house cool all day than come home and take it from 95 to 74. Don’t you learn that when you are 4. I bet ice floating boggles her mind.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        76 for me.

    • dm says:

      Yeah, fuck that…74 24/7.

    • DeniseVB says:

      72 upstairs
      74 downstairs

    • Somebody says:

      We put in a new heat pump a couple of months ago. High SEER, variable speed, etc. That damn thing will run you out of this house, it’s cold in here no matter what it’s set on. I wear a robe or hoodie, all day, every day. I turn the thermostat up to 76, my daughter cranks it down to 72…..like an ice box I tell ya. I crank it up, she cranks it down 🙄 I try to compromise at 74, she tweaks to 73 🙄 I’m still in jackets 🙄

      I thought it was just me, but hubby is home now 😀 First thing he said, damn it’s cold in here 😂

      Moral to the story, may be a newer system keeps you more comfortable at a higher setting. However, not everyone has a newer system or can afford one. Some people are naturally warmer or colder, some people have medical conditions. Also Tim is correct it costs more to have swings in temps like that.

      We used to always keep ours set on 72, but that is quite chilly with this new system. Maybe it’s more efficient at dehumidifying? Maybe the stronger air handler just moves more air?? Even with the house being an ice box our electric bill has dropped by 25% or so.

      • Somebody says:

        Correction 30% drop

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think after a certain age, cold is good and much healthier. The July/August humidity can choke a frog here in coastal Virginia. 🙂

      • blowme0bama says:

        Maybe so. I think there are a lot of things that factor into it. Our unit is only 12 years old, and the AC repair people who’ve come out have remarked it is a bit of overkill for this house. On the other hand, The one at the old home place up in the country was installed, I think, around the same time, was a rebuilt unit, and it cools down from anywhere from 78 to 80 down to 72 in about 3-4 hours. I do remember when the unit prior to the one I replaced was first installed and it DID seem to run far less frequently and for very short periods of time.

    • elliesmom says:

      We get letters from the power company every summer telling us we use 15% more cooling energy than our neighbors. No shit, Sherlock. We have central air, and the other houses in the neighborhood have a window AC in the bedroom. We’re home all day, and they go off to work. As long as we’re paying the bill, it’s none of their business whether we use more or less than our neighbors. We use a lot less than Algore. Our electric bill is about $50/ month higher in the summer than in the winter. The AC is a bargain. The letter always suggests raising the temp when we go off to work. When I go off to work, I’ll consider it.

      • blowme0bama says:

        Yeah, I get the same sort of jackass letter – usually says we use 20 to 25% more than similar homes.

        I grew up with a tight Dad: sleeping in 78 degrees in the hot, humid Mississippi summers. I promised myself, and I’ve kept that promise, I’m going to be comfortable damn it, and I have been. I turn that son of a bitch down to 70 if Wifey could tolerate it.

        • taw46 says:

          We grew up in a small town in SC. We didn’t have A/C and very few fans. Those were some miserable, hot, sweaty nights and days. I’m with you, never again. GFY power companies.

          • blowme0bama says:

            Oh GOD. My Dad grew up like that. He said they slept on the floor with the windows and doors open I can’t imagine how those people lived.

          • taw46 says:

            It was awful. I don’t know how all the people in my little town survived, lol. And we still were able to be nice and polite to each other!

          • Myiq2xu™ says:

            Before the white man came the Native American Indians fled the Central Valley in the summer and headed up into the mountains. I don’t know how the white men who first settled her survived without A/C or shade. It was even worse for the women – picture how women were dressed in the 19th Century, covered up from head to toe with only their faces exposed. Now picture them in 100+ degree heat. Some of the first American settlers were shocked at the way Spanish/Mexican women dressed because they left so much skin exposed.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      I keep my thermostat halfway between where I like it (72) and where Mom wants it (76). Neither one of us is happy and that’s the way we like it.

      • Somebody says:

        I’m like Klown’s mom and Klown is like my teen! Klown listens better than my teen though 😉

      • Anthony says:

        Mine is always on 74 (energy saver) whether I’m home or not. My boys are divas, and insist on wearing fur coats all year round. Bill is only about $50 more during AC season, which for me is only July and August. I lucked out with an apt in the rear of the building that gets a lot of indirect light and has great cross ventilation because of window placement. The only time I really need AC is when its humid. Otherwise, windows are open and Mother Nature does the rest

    I just watched 8 Days. Based on a tue story. A young girl being trafficked. A year ago I would have thought a load of tosh, but there have been hundreds of arrests in Ohio. An hour away. Its all over the news all the time. Shay had a guy make very sketchy moves. FBI was involved. I don’t think a person can be safer than we are. Shay never goes any place unsafe. I thought she was going to the mall with a mother who said she was a nurse. Nope she does not have a license in PA and she has disappeared off the Earth. What could have been scares the fuck out of me. Shay was unknown to me working in a restaurant running food. An adult man was giving a hundred dollars. He pressed himself against her as a man. Shd snuck out the backdoor, climbed a tree, and called uber. I had no idea. There were hundreds of police. The restaurant owner claimed he useda staffing service and did not know Shay was 12. This is suburbia. I did not think trafficking was real. I grew up with the California horror stories. The white van. It never felt real. An adult male and woman were grooming my kid. I am crazy protective. I sit outside the movies. This woman claimed to be a nurse. Nope. Worked briefly as a CNA. She has vanished. Votermom might know about the Ohio arrests since she follows Pittsburgh news. Its almost daily. Was the world always this vile? I was aware of Freeway killers but that was far away in Cali. Not in my suburbs. A college friend is doing a piece on crime in the 70’s. He hired me to read local press about killers. I had never heard of Dean Corll. I can’t see how any of those people could get away with their crimes. I never want to watch anything true crime again. I pray no person ever has to read about Corll. The tv show Criminal Minds is Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm compared to that sick fuck. I don’t see how it is possible for kids to disappear. Yet I was almost there. Laurie Strode may have saved my brat. She has always found horror films funny. She laughs at them. She always said climb a tree you can kick Jason Vorhees in the head. When a bad dude put her in a precarious place she climbed a tree. She has a black belt. Had he followed her it would have not been pretty for him.

    • votermom says:

      no, I didn’t hear about the Ohio trafficking stuff! Now I have to look it up eek!
      KTY and her bestfriend are now both at Pitt. The bff was amazed that KTY has been sent to college with a couple of stun guns, pepper spray, a “self defense key chain”, and choice of utility knives (plus a triple black belt in karate).
      KTE was with us and gave her sister ‘s bff her pepper spray – she was thrilled. I think she may get one of KTYs stun guns as well.

      • Mothy67 says:

        It was all over local news, but I don’t think it went national.
        Oakland is probably one of the safest places in the world. Pitt has it’s own police force. Remember that brief abduction attempt last year? They brought down the full force of the city over that. Pittsburgh wasn’t hit as hard as some rust belt towns because of academia. There are several good schools here and the topography has allowed university life to thrive. Oakland is it’s own place. It is like a midwestern land grant school. We go every year to The Museums the day after Thanksgiving. I think the Cathedral of Learning is the most handsome building I have ever seen. When i take Bell on long walks I can see it rising over the mountains. Stunning ediface.
        Do you remember you had debated having KTE go to Temple. Ugh. Temple.

    • Somebody says:

      Wow, I had no idea. I remember reading an AGW/CC study years ago. It was significant because one of the scientists involved was one of the original AGW panic crew. Study was in Europe CERN I believe. They built a sealed model of 🌎 with intentions of showing carbon emissions were killing us all.

      What they found was the sun was the main player in global warming or cooling, duh! They studied carbon impact specifically, pumped it up to unheard of levels. Conclusion was there are pockets on earth that act as lungs so to speak. Two largest ones or main ones were over the Amazon rain forest and in China. Global winds function in a way that carries pollutants across those areas. There are smaller pockets too. I can’t remember the main scientist or his colleagues, but there were once respected, true believers. Then they were apostates.

      We need the rain forest!
