Over the last week or so, Donald Trump has
been tweeting a lot about how awesome the stock market is doing. And it is, I mean, there’s no denying that. And of course it’s still not growing by the
same percentage it was growing under Obama, but it’s still growing. And that’s building off of the growth of Obama. So the stock market is doing phenomenal and
for the almost 50% of people who have some kind of money in the stock market, most of
us just have it in some kind of retirement account. They’re probably kind of happy, right? But for the rest of the country that has no
money whatsoever in the stock market, doesn’t even understand the stock market, none of
that matters. And in fact, those people, according to the
latest data, are actually having to reduce their spending because they just don’t have
enough money according to a new report by the invest in you spending survey published
by CNBC, one third of Americans in this country. You’ve said that this year so far, they have
had to drastically reduce the amount of money they spend. And it’s not just because, ah, we’re going
to stop spending, we’re going to start saving money. That’s not what it is. The number one reason that one third of Americans
say they’ve reduced their spending is because of a job loss. Another large percentage of them say that
they’ve had to reduce their spending because they have massive medical debts they have
to pay off or they have accumulated other debts that they also have to pay off. And here’s where I’m going with this. One third of Americans in this country are
spending less money today and it’s because they have less money either through job loss,
a wage decreases inflation, but no pay increase or because of massive debt. These things are the result of Republican
policies. And let’s be honest, corporate as democratic
policies as well. You know, we can both sides of this a little
bit I guess, but the fact of the matter is that if these people continue to reduce their
spending and if that number of people who are reducing their spending increases, you
know, maybe it goes from one third to one half, then do you know where we’re headed? We are headed right down recession lane folks
because it is those people, the people that spend 100% of their paycheck, the people who
clock in and clock out of work, nine to five every day or midnight to 7:00 AM whatever
it is. Those are the people that drive our economy. Those are the ones actually out there spending,
putting money back. They make it, they spend it. This person then makes it, they spend it and
so on and so forth. You know who’s not driving the economy right
now that people kicking ass in the stock market, they just want to make more money with it. Maybe they’ll sell that stock and invest in
another one. Those of us with retirement accounts, we don’t
even know where we’ve got money invested in. Some of you might. Maybe you’re more responsible than me. I don’t even know how much I have in there. I know it’s not much at all, but I guess I’ve
got a little bit in there, but the point is none of that matters. You can brag about the stock market all day
long and guess what? That’s not going to save us from heading into
a recession because the people driving the economy are having to spend less and less. And as I have stated countless times in the
past, what happens when those people start spending less than other people have to start
spending less because they’re earning less. You know, suppose the restaurant down the
street suddenly overnight loses one third of their business. That’s not going to be good for them. That’s not a sustainable business model of
suddenly one third of the people who used to show up are gone for good. So then you’re going to have to cut back on
your employee’s hours and your own personal spending. Well then your employees and yourself now
have less money to spend. So maybe the businesses they frequented, they
see a reduction in their numbers, so they’ve got to make the necessary cuts as well. That is how a recession starts. It can start local and go national in no time. And in fact that is one of the things that
this study says, Hey, we’re, we’re still headed for that recession, folks. We’re still headed there, and these numbers
are absolute proof that the policies of holding down the working class in the United States
are driving us into a recession. If we enacted student loan debt relief, Medicare
for All, $15 minimum wage, things like that, that could prevent this. But it’s the people, most of them on the Republican
side holding those policies back, preventing them from becoming law of the land that are
forcing these people to reduce their spending. So when the coming recession finally arrives,
make sure you remember who exactly is to blame for this, because we know the solutions. We have the plans. There’s just one party standing in the way.

100 thoughts on “Republican Policies Are Pushing Country Towards A Recession”

  1. I think the biggest reason behind what the economists are saying about the economy and what people experience is because unemployment numbers need to modernize. Back in the days, the "gig" economy wasn't really a thing. But young people these days may work 2-3 jobs, one week for 80 hours, another week for 5 hours, another week they get no calls etc. I mean, it is nothing new, really, because dayworkers have been a thing since recorded history started. However (for the modern era) the sheer number of day workers is staggered compared to just 20 or 30 years ago. Now. Is such a person employed or unemployed? Neither, if we by unemployed mean no work, and if we by employed mean a stable job with a stable salary. The latter is important, because, how will you get a loan for a car or a house when you have no guarantee? If you do, you will get it with a 10-15% APR that's how! And if you have a busted credit score… financial insecurity increase expenses. It's upside down, it's like only healthy people were allowed to see doctors. No, the healthy people are the ones that need it the least! The sum of all of this is that there is less capital flowing from the working class to consumer goods and services, however, using the economic theories of old, that are no longer relevant because of a change in circumstance, the economy is doing well, when in reality it is a bubble and it's gonna pop sooner or later.

  2. the belief that money is the only sign of success or failiure in life is now synonimous with "american". not nessecarily "republican". the population of america has a majority of people who think like that, thus legitimizing all the evils that the trump clan embodies as but one example.

  3. Peter Schiff is predicting a slow down in Q3 and Q4. He is blaming the Fed's policy to appease wall street.

  4. Didn't Orange Fucko state after the tax scam was implemented that he didn't care what would happen because he wouldn't be around? I can see him being a success on PraegerU rewriting history as his cult, the gestalt-bite me, and fundie fuckheads move on to the next insane crank because they're enraged at another thing that isn't real.

  5. So, during a recession, do those ski masks from China cost more? Have you figured out a way to write the cost off?

    EDIT: YAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWN! Liar!

  6. The way the economy works requires a livable wage they spend at the market or malls now the market or mall has to replenish their stock which bring in warehouses, truck driver's, Port operations restaurants , farmer's ,convenient Stores and more Rinse lather repeat once the dollar stops so does the cycle less Warehouses .less truck driver's ETC….. Recession Boom !

  8. Republicans would love another recession for multiple reasons:
    1. The people that have money are able to buy a bunch of expensive things for cheap.
    2. People vote republican because they continually say they'll fix the things that democrats broke, even though it's a lie.

  9. Andrew Yang is the only solution. What is the point making more laws. All the other politicians are lawyers, but Andrew thinks like an economist to fix capitalism and has a much better solution than a $15 minimum wage. You can make wages whatever you want, but you cannot force an employer to hire an employee so that $15 minimum wage job now becomes a $0 an hour job when all those jobs are automated.

  10. Who gets hurt by a recession? Certainly not the top 1%!
    EVERY ONE ELSE GETS HURT and it is a wonderful way for the top 1% to fump the next 9% into the weeds.

  11. LAND OF THE FREE, it was a phrase used because Americans paid ZERO income tax. Not slaves to the state.

  12. let's review wealth distribution as described in a recent atlantic monthly article on the new aristocracy…the 1% owns 20 % next 9% owns 60% bottom 90% owns 20%…so it's not really about the 1% and the 99% that 9% is where the real wealth resides..the professional managerial class….and to be in that 9% means you earn about $250k plus/yr and have assets of $1.5 million….not truly wealthy but doing darn good….

  13. First love the lie about it being Trump and Republican fault and that the economy did not expand.
    Let's talk TRUTH: the GDP has been increasing and did so at a improved rate after tax cuts. Job creation is up giving people more opportunity.
    What you also FAIL to mention is the four interest rate hikes and the stopping of dollars being printed and pushed into circulation which Obama did which was ONLY reason Obama had any growth and didn't have a DEPRESSION. Obama by printing so much money really messed with potential inflation which is why Trump got hit with interest rate hikes.
    The only reason businesses are not increasing wages is because they are uncertain about future election and that if people are ignorant and vote in Democrats the TAX cuts that are helping people will be revoked.

  14. Liberalism arises from weakness and delusion. Liberalism is perpetrated, promulgated and perpetuated by the weak and delusional. Liberalism is weakness that ultimately leads to RUIN. End of lesson.

  15. So I have two notes one is so are you saying that if we have Medicare for all and other policies that maybe good for consumer when it's still necessarily have the consumer be forced to work since that is coming out of your taxes and I doubt people would like a low pay from their paycheck so that will make them or force them to work more hours…. And two wooden the average consumer who was not spinning be the one at fault for the recession isn't it what you're saying

  16. Democrats cant live with out high taxes free hand outs free welfare checks and illegals along with illegal drugs what would they do if the working american refused to pay taxes 🥶🥶😭😭😭🤢 is what they would do. They would starve to death with out their chicken mcnuggets beer pizza pop corn weed cocaine heroin and watermelon .let the democrats go live in other countries and see how the real poor live run by democrats no clean water no food no medicine and maybe they would think twice about bitching about everything obama ❤ high taxes on the middle class republicans only because democrat all on welfare or past out on the sidewalk drunk now it's your turn tax the dead beats and give to the real working class a tax cut .get a. Job get a tax cut lay on your ass get a tax free welfare check.We paid double taxes when your boy was in office now it's our turn to tax you..tax the Democrats to see how they like it.

  17. Thing is recessions don't hurt the bottom line for the rich, they'll get a bailout package yet again and again our infrastructure and social programs will go penniless. Meanwhile the ones who create the problem get paid for creating the problem again. Kinda like a ponzi scam with no punishment.
    Why on earth do the republican voters not see this.

  18. In the near future Automation will take jobs from millions of Americans self driving trucks and cars, self check outs, self driving farm equipment, even automated shelf stockers we need U.B.I. NOW

  19. The Manchurian President has no intention of improving any aspect of our country so why marvel at his destructive policies and appointments? Donald couldnt be more detrimental if putin instructed him which appointees & policies would do most harm to our country. How can we have national pride when we support shameful atrocities to those seeking protection. If American citizens had to seek asylum to our neighbors how would we like the same treatment? If our children were kidnapped falsely imprisoned and lost from us forever would that be just for seeking protection? If you support this cruel disgusting midevil policy you are not a patriot or Christian. Perhaps not even human. When your in custody of the government you are a number, not a person. Your at their mercy for every basic human need. If a mentality of dehumanization is promoted it dehumanizes the entire society that allows it. As long as we have caged children its not they that are the animals but US. Stop this grotesque dangerous tyrant or a modern day world war will occurr that will make the atrocities of ww2 pale in comparison. Hitler had the shame to at least hide his atrocities, trump commits them openly and simply says "what you see and hear is not really happening". Djtrumps only goal as an illegitimate appointed president is to intentionally & systematically reverse undercut and destroy any progress made by our country in the last 50 years. Every policy and appointment by trump is an insult to our ideals and progress to justice truth equality and honor. He is undifferentiable from the pompous bragging lawless one who deceiveth the world.

  20. Use to be Republicans we’re fiscally conservative. Now it’s spend, spend….into a record federal deficit.

    Republicans should be voted out of office.

  21. Once USA was the nation everyone was looking up to and admired, because everything new and fancy, and all great ideas for development of the modern society came from USA.

    Reagan and decades of rightwing conservative political ideology has transformed USA from once beeing a proud and great nation in to a third world development country…

    For people from the modern civilized part of the world visiting USA is just like visiting a medieval museum

  22. Farron,
    Perhaps, you should stop saying" Gone For Good"!
    What's so good about it?
    Say it right!
    Gone Forever!
    That business that you refer to, will not think it's a good thing, they lost the business!
    Just say it right!
    I absolutely HATE, when people say "GONE FOR GOOD"!
    What's sooo good about a small business, losing business and closing?
    Please Explain That!
    Also "Closing For Good"!
    Neither Are In Any Way, Shape Or Form "GOOD"!
    What's so good about it?
    Please Explain Those,
    Thank You!
    Recession, starts out small, a Wildfire,
    Which turns into a Firestorm!
    And It's All,
    From The Greed,
    Of The REPUBLICLANS!
    DUMP THE DOPE,
    DUMP THE CHUMP!
    The wage increase, won't help!
    The REPUBLICLANS will just raise the prices, since they had to give their workers a wage increase!
    That's not the problem!
    ITS ALL ABOUT CONTROL OF THE WORKERS MONEY!
    THAT WONT HELP ANYTHING!
    MAKE THE REPUBLICLAN'S LOWER THE PRICES OF ALL THE GOODS AND SERVICES!
    Then and Only Then,
    Will You See Real Change!

  23. a further reason is Trump's tariffs, these will push up the cost of everything,

    ie things you buy become more expensive, so you buy less.

    Trump's idea is that it will help US manufacture,
    because imported goods more expensive,

    but, the catch is that the shops that sell the imported stuff will sell less,
    AND the US companies that import components and raw materials, will now have to pay more for those components and raw materials, and will forward the rise in costs to the customer, so the US manufactured goods will become more expensive.

    When Trump was threatening tariffs on Mexico, I read a report that some major canadian gold company was going to then stop having their gold processed in the US, because their gold came from Mexico.

    the workers at those US manufacturers will also have to pay more for their buying, and so they will need higher wages, and that then pushes up the prices further.

    Trump is thinking from the US manufacturer side, but the US consumer will buy fewer things,
    which then has a domino effect on the US shops.

    The sanctions on Iran also push up the cost of petroleum, because the entire world is being forced to not buy iranian oil,
    so the demand for the saudi oil will greatly increase, net effect is the price will go up.

    if the price gets too high, then the fracking industry reactivates, they were hemmed out by the saudis lowering the price of oil.

    Here is a very precise prediction of mine for the US stock exchanges, I conjecture that by end of March 2020,
    the Dow Jones will peak around 28000 and then fall to at most 14000,
    the S&P 500 will peak around 3000 and will fall to 15000 or under,
    and the Nasdaq 100 will peak around 8000 and then fall to 4000 or less.

    These predictions are based firstly on the inversion of the yield curve, which says a US recession by 25th March 2020,
    and then secondly on the specific geometry of those 3 stock index graphs. With stock market crashes, the most likely thing to happen is a halving of the index.

    basically all will "crash", but it may be a slow motion crash where it takes several months.

    This October will be the 90th anniversary of the 1929 Wall Street Crash, and 9th Nov 2019 is the 30th anniversary of east germans being allowed to go to West Germany.

    So this autumn is the 90th anniversary of the crash, and the 30th anniversary of the freeing of East Germany.

    1989 was basically when the USSR was falling apart, I think there is major financial calamity coming to the US on this double anniversary. Its interesting how the opening of the Berlin wall was almost exactly 60 years after the great wall street crash.

    The only people who really gain from the stock market are the big banks who INVENT the prices. Because they invent the prices, they can engineer their own escape from mayhem, as depicted in the film "the big short". With that, the guy correctly predicted the housing market was going to tank, and decided to get rich by shorting the index (shorting is where you sell before you buy, so you make money when the financial worsens). But in fact they lost all their money, because the banks rigged the index upwards temporarily until the margin calls harpooned all their money. (with short selling, if the price moves upwards, after a certain margin, you have to pay for the worsening to remain in the game, this payment is called a "margin call")

    then they let the index crash, and the people made no money.

    When you buy shares, a buy and sell price appear by magic: eg $1.20 buy price, $1.05 sell price.

    where do those prices come from?

    they are INVENTED by the market maker.

    Basically there is someone on the other side of the $1.20 BUY and $1.05 SELL deal,
    that person is the "market maker", and for them they SELL at $1.20 and BUY at $1.05, ie they are subject to a different rule,
    they buy cheap and sell expensive, while the shareholders all buy expensive and sell cheap.

    If everyone starts buying in on shares, the market will eventually crash, and that is where the market makers SWALLOW all the money. eg you buy a share for $1.20, and it crashes to $0.70, if you sell now, you have lost $.50. Where did it go? to the market makers. Example market maker is Goldman Sachs, and in Britain RBS. I think UBS is another. The REALLY BIG banks, are the market makers.

    My crash prediction could be wrong, but if it is, then maybe the US stock markets will never crash. If it hasnt happened by 25th March then my theories are WRONG.

  24. Yeah when you give money to the rich God is going to make the rich pay all that money back one way or the other tornadoes hurricanes earthquakes the rich have to pay back one way or the other

  25. Susan the only way things will change is to get rid of the trumps trash and vote his bi fat ass out stand your ground

  26. Trump has got this country in the best shape it's been in since the 1950's.
    Your 1/2 breed hero did nothing but put this country in deep debt , he surpassed the spending of all previous presidents COMBINED !!!

  27. It’s both fucked up sides not just one both democrats and republicans have caused recessions in the past it’s called recorded government history do the rest of America a favor get a fucking clue quit voting for them dumbasses

  28. But their policies are pushing more money into THEIR pockets, so everyone else paying the price for it is a minor concern to them since they will have more than enough money themselves, to ride out any consequences of their actions ……… except climate change. No amount of money will save their kids and grand kids from that but then, they don't care about that either. As long as they feel rich.

  29. There are plenty to blame on both sides. Trump just happens to be spearheading us into a darker recession or possibly depression. We are at the point of no return. Nothing is going to stop the massive pending recession. Tue best we can hope for is for someone else to get in power that could soften the blow

  30. Don't bother complaining to a Republican voter. They can't wait to go broke, blame Democrats, Hillary and Obama. Then rush to vote Republican again. Get ready to lead, Eric Trump.

  31. Both parties, generally speaking, are standing in the way. Pelosi and the corporate Democrats have to go.

  32. Remember W TELLING EVERYONE TO KEEP SPENDING EVEN THO WE SHOULD ALL BE SAVING IN ORDER TO KEEP THE ECONOMY GROWING?
    THOSE ARE EXAMPLES OF TERRIBLE REPUG POLICIES. WAGES ARE STAGNANT. CORPORATION NEED TO BE REQUIRED TO RAISE WAGES TO A MIN $15 . THATS AN AWSOME DEAL GIVEN THAT THE REAL MIN WAGE S H O U L D BE $26.15 AT THIS CURRENT TIME IF Wages had kept up w productivity and ceo compensation.
    Imagine how much we could buy w such a fair wage. The economy would be EXPLODING ALL THE WAY UP AND DOWN THE LINE.. PEOPLE COULD GET OUT OF DEBT AND LIVE MUCH BETTER PROViDED CORS HELD THE LINE AND DID NOT RAISE PRICES RIGHT AWAY CAUSING INFLATION BUT ATE IT FOR A YR OR TWO TO BE GOOD CORP CITIZENS AND ALLOW WEALTH INEQUALITY TO HEAL.
    INSTEAD OF CUTTING HOURS MILLIONS OF JOBS WOULD BE MADE HOURS INCREASED AND EVERYONE COULD RELAX A LITTLE. FAMILIES COULD SPEND MORE TIME TOOETHER BECAUSE THEY WOULDNT HAVE TO WORK MULTIPLE JOBS. SO THERED BE MORE JOBS TO GO AROUND.
    CORPS HAVE BILLIONS SOME TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS BECAUSE THEYVE BRIBED POLS TO KEEP WAGES ARTIFICIALLY LOW FOR 40 YRS PARTLY BY USING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO THEY ILLEGALLY UNDERPAY AND PARTLY BY OUR MAIN EXPORT…JOBS.
    THE BIGGEST PART OF THE REPUG LIES is THAT WE RE STILL NOT SEEING A MASSIVE INFLUX oF GO
    OD PAYING JOBS. JOB CREATION NUMBERS ARE STILL SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE OBAMA ERA JOB CREATION NUMBERS. THE FACT IS WE RE S T I L L
    E X P O R T I N G MORE JOBS THAN EVER OVERSEAS.
    WHY ISNT THERE AN EVER GROWING LIST OF CORPORATIONS ADDING A GREAT NUMBER OF NEW JOBS AND BUILDING NEW FACTORIES ADDING THE TENS OF MILLIONS OF NEW JoBS WE NEED TO RAISE US OUT OF POVERTY FOR GOOD? WHY ISNT TRUMP BRAGGING ON THEM EVERY DAY CROWING OVER THE M I L L I O N S OF NEW JOBS?
    BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO INTENTIONS OF E V E R DOING THAT AS EMPOWERING THE WORKERS IN ANY WAY IS THE ABSOLUTE LAST THING REPUGS E V E R WANT TO DO.
    THEY EXPO
    RTED THE JOBS IN THE FIRST PLACE EXPRESSLY TO B R E A K THE UNIONS AND THE MUDDLECLASS.. THE ONLY GROUPS IN HISTORY TO FORCE CORPORATION TO ACT IN ALL OF SOCIETIES BEST INTEREST.
    TRUMP AND CONGRESS CONTINUES TO GIVE THE RICH AND CORPORATIONS EVERY ADVANTAGE OVER THE PEOPLE ESPESCIALLY WORKERS.
    DEFACTO EXTRACTING EVER MORE WEALTH FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS WORKING CLASS AND THE POOR BY KEEPING WAGES ARTIFUCIALLY LOW RAISING OUR TAXES TO GIVE THEM TAX BREAKS AND CUTTING SPENDING IN DESPERATELY NEEDED SOCIAL PROGRAMS. ITS REVERSE COMMUNISM WITH THE GOVT GIVING ENTITLEMENTS TO THE MOST ENTITLED RICH IN HISTORY RETURNING TO THE DAYS OF THE ROBBER BARRONS.
    THAT TRUMP NAMED HIS YOUNGEST CHILD BARRON IS HUGELY TELLING. THAT ALONE WAS A HUGE HINT TO WHERE ALL OF HIS INTERESTS LIE. HE IS EMPHATICALLY NOT O U R PRESIDENT. HES THE ONE PERCENTS PRESIDENT ALONE.
    HE I S THE SWAMP.
    STOP VOTING AGAINST YOUR OWN BEST INTEREST PEOPLE. TRUMP IS A TAKER NOT A GIVER.
    DEMS NEED TO DO 3 THINGS TO END THIS INSANITY.
    REGISTER YOURSELF AND ANYONE YOU CAN TO VOTE.
    ELECT BERNIE SANDERS OR LIZ WARREN W TULSI AS VP.
    AND BY NO MEANS VOTE FOR CORPORATE FASCIST DEMS WHO VOTE W REPUGS. THEY ARE IN FACT IDENTICAL TO REPUGS.
    DO NOT DONATE TO THE DNC BUT STRAIGHT TO YOUR GRASS ROOTS CANDIDATES LIKE BERNIE LUZ AND TULSI.
    IF DEMS DONT VOTE IN MASSIVE NUMBERS THEY WILL BE CUTTING THEIR OWN THROATS TELL DNC POINT BLANK WE WILL N O T VOTE FOR CENTERIST CANDIDATES NO MATTER WHAT IF YOU MAKE THEM THE CANDIDATE THEN WE WILL GO EN MASS TO THE MOST POPULAR 3RD PARTY PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATE.
    DEMAND OPEN PRIMARIES.
    PAPER BALLOTS.
    AN END TO THE ELEECTORAL COLLEGE THE ELITES END RUN AROUND THE PEOPLE.
    LAST ELECTION YOU LOST MANY VOTERS BECAUSE YOU TRIED TO FORCE CORRUPT HRC ON US WHEN WE TOLD YOU WE HAD NO INTENTION TO VOTE FOR HER. ONCE AGAIN WE RE TELLING YOU AND WE M E A N WE WILL N O T VOTE FOR A CENTERIST CANDIDATE WHO IS MINIMALLY BLUE. LIKE BIDEN AND OTHER CENTESTS WHO ARE REALLY CONSERVATIVES.
    BERNIE LIZ OR TULSI OR WE WALK. IF YOURE SERIOUS ABOUT UNITY THE DNC NEEDS TO JOIN THE PEOPLE AND DO WHAT THEY WANT OR Y O U WILL GIVE A 3RD PARTY OR TRUMP THE WIN.
    NO ONE BUT A SERIOUS PROGRESSIVE CAN REVERSE THESE CATASTROPHIC REGRESSIVE TRENDS. WE NEED A DEM PRESIFENT AND CONGRESS AND DEM POLS UP AND DOWN THE LINE TO EMPOWER THE PEOPLE OVER CORPORATIONS..
    TRUMPS POLICIES ARE BECOMING MORE GENOCIDAL EVERY DAY.
    VOTE PROGRESSIVE BLUE OR WE WILL DIE BECAUSE ITS DEMS AND LIBERALS THE EXTREMISTS MOST WANT TO KILL..
    DONT BELIEVE ME? CHECK OUT JOHN MARKOR ANY PROTRUMP SITE. THE EXTREMUST SITES ARE LITERALLY RANTING AND RAVING FOR A CIVIL WAR TO MAKE IT LEGAL TO KILL ALL DEMS LIBERALS OR ANYONE WHO DISAGREES W THEM. FBI NEEDS TO FIGURE OUT HOW MANY THERE ARE AND KEEP AN EYE ON THEM CLOSELY. BEVAUSE WHEN TRUMP IS REMOVED THEYLL ATTACK ACCORDING TO THEM DESTROYING THE INFRADYRICTURE AND ALLOWING MILLIONS TO DIE.
    RESEARCH IT YOURSELF
    THEY HAVE GUNS ANDXTHEY WANT TO USE THEM TO PLAY FIRST PERSON SHOOTER.PATRIOTS.
    THEN ARM YOURSELVES BECAUSE THESE PSYCHOS ARENT KIDDING.

  33. Another loser making faulty predictions. What recession? What "pushing"? Seen tge jobs report for June, yet? Looks like realitt trumps your nonsense!

  34. Everyone who is having a hard time now because losing a job or just don't make enough you can hang on because the rest of them will see it in 2020 when Obama's effect finally wears off and Trump's takes effect. It's going to be a big shock to everyone when they can't do the things they've been used to doing for the last 2 years then they will finally realize if they been screwed by Trump. Just a little too late of realizing the truth.

  35. I don't know much about stocks or recessions, but if I see a lot of people with work and spending money how can we go towards a recession?

  36. The stock market has been at or below the same level for a year and a half. Unless you are retiring right now or you are a trader it does you no good what so ever.

  37. Both partied are!
    That's what happans when you have polticans working for there own interest and donors

  38. Donald Trump is not funny he is pathetic! These other countries do not pay the taxes on these tariffs AMERICAN TAXPAYERS PAY THE TAXES ON THIS SHIT! DONALD TRUMP IS A "FUCKING MORON"!

  39. The best habit to have (and I know this is not possible for everyone) is to avoid debt like the plague that it is.

  40. People have to get over the idea that the stock market is the economy. The stock market is being propped up by the tax breaks given to the super wealthy and corporations.

  41. Could you be more full of shit? Two-Thirds of Americans are enjoying having a Job, like the lowest unemployment for Blacks and Latinos in 50 years… People are back to buying New Homes, Cars and whatever they like… The People having trouble with HealthCare, well you can thank that Jackass Obama and the Democrats for that… Not ONE Republican Voted to screw up the HealthCare System…

  42. We're heading for far worse than that. What automation did to manufacturing they're about to do the same to fast food workers, retail workers, call center workers and truck drivers…displacing millions of jobs…and those jobs are not going overseas or to illegals…they'll be replaced with robots instead of people…and Republicans and many Dems are asleep at the switch as this calamity comes barreling towards us.

  43. Farron, the reason the stock market is doing so well is because it is rigged and propped up! Huge stock buybacks by the greedy and soulless corporations, Trump's plunge protection team, the federal reserve and the big banks. Left on its own this stock market would be dead in the water. Now it's begging for interest rate cuts to make sure the bubble stays inflated and the Feds will oblige! 2 1/4 % rates and they can't handle that! People in this country will never again be able to earn interest on savings! All money must go to the stock market casino to try to earn dividends! People, Farron, mark my words the coming recession will be devastating and disastrous with dire consequences for the common people. Of course the rich with their walled estates and private security will be able to ride it out!

  44. Job loss?
    Medical Expense?
    Inflation?
    Lack of pay?
    None of which are correlated to Republican “policies”.
    In fact, you didn’t even sight one policy that has causality with your bald headed rant. Try again.

  45. Pelosi is an attention whore. I don’t think she really gives a shit as much as she presents herself to be

  46. The stock market bubble will burst soon, since it was fueled primarily by stock buy-backs precipitated by the tax cuts for the very wealthy, which included repatriation of off-shore funds. The low employment figures are somewhat of a ruse, since U3 shows the low low 3.7% rate, but U6, which is more indicative of the overall economy, shows 7.4%. Also, in the last month there was actually a shrinkage of 600,000 jobs in the overall economy. Keep in mind, too, that more than 7200 major stores and factories have closed down so far this year. Trump hails our economy as being "the strongest in history," but the real data, which continue to weaken, suggest a far different picture that will be apparent very soon, thus depriving him of the only two props he has used to support his bogus claim. That's the good news. The bad news is that this quickly arriving economic hiccup could make the 2008 fiasco looks like child'd play.

  47. So, I'll make money either way, only anti Americans would care about tariffs on other countries. We need to bring America back from the dead, leftist sheeple sold our nations economy off piece by piece and now it's time to undo the damage done by ignorant sheeple.

  48. you're right. S&P500 companies have been returning almost 100% of it's earnings in dividends and stock buybacks and at the same time retaining some earnings to reinvest back and growth… and you say how? how can they get more than 100% of it's earnings and make use of it… well they're leveraging slowly thoroughhout the last 5 years… that's kinda unsustainable so

  49. Yes and no. To be accurate republicans make it worse than it needs to be.a healthy market has large drops. Obama artificially inflated the market and it still is. The next 2 to 4 years will hurt

  50. WRONG! dem policies are pushing us towards a universal 15 pr hr socialist run machine state that replaces anyone who complains with a fresh illegal mexican who think 15 pr hr is a lottery win dream job. welcome to the machine! what did you dream? its alright we told you what to dream!

  51. Trump is Hoover part two, running parallel including the dumb tariff decisions, and we are past the great depression cliff edge and running in the air like Wyle E. Coyote. Soon we'll hold up the "meep" sign and drop like a rock. It is going to make the Great Depression look like nothing.

  52. No shit? Didn’t the last republican president do the same shit?!

    Its the one thing they are consistently good at sadly

  53. LoL for the sake of argument, let’s say it’s all the GOP’s fault- Democratic policies will be better?- "I will decriminalize illegal border crossings and even give them incentive to come (free health care)" – all democrats.
    "I hate this country, it’s founding, most of its laws and most of its people" vote for me because orange man bad, orange man racist!

  54. Who is running LA, SanFran, Seattle, Baltimore and those cities with many homeless people and illegals killing Americans every day there .

  55. Both parties are in the way! Vote for only Justice Democrats or the rare Republicans who are obviously progressive to see any real change in this country! #WeThePeople

  56. If the economy is so great , why does the fed keep cutting interest rates? Stocks are not the economy! When you stop looking for a job after 6 months ,you counted as employed, It job rate are BULLSHIT! When people start to default on their personal debt . Watch what happens. The sugar high won't last much longer! 2008 will be the good ol days then. Remember before October 1929 the stock market was booming also.

  57. Bush gave the 1% two tax cuts and in 08 a bailout in an attempt to prevent further harm to the economy and not one penny was ever paid back and the GOP said nothing except people need to pay bills and go spend money to make the economy grow. Obama bailed out the auto industry which was also necessary but Obama made every auto company who took the bail out money pay it back. Obama had the worst economy in US history since Coolidge and Hoover during the Great Depression. Yet the GOP blocked many bills to help with the recovery effort in an attempt to blame Obama for not being able to fix the economy. And I admit Obama didn't make the best decisions all the time, what president does? But given the economy he was handed, two wars, and a GOP that refused to work with him unless they got a tax hand out for the 1% but kept saying "This President needs to stop adding to the deficit" so after 8 years he accomplished 3 huge things, 1: improved the economy despite the odds 2: He got Bin Laden. 3: he took a Republican healthcare idea created by a Republican years ago, rebranded it, and got it passed in a GOP controlled congress. Now that Trump is in, he's done some things that have been good and he's done a lot more that are absolutely horrible. And now that he's following past tax cut handouts, getting rid of banking restrictions that helped keep banks from doing another "Big Short" playing checkers with tariffs while China is playing chess but Trump doesn't comprehend China already called checkmate. The stock market is looking very familiar to the 08 trend just before it collapsed, and Trump has already added 4 trillion to the deficit. In some ways I hope he gets re-elected so when it does crash, he'll be responsible although he'll blame others, then he'll be responsible for fixing it and he won't be able to since the next recession is established to add $8 trillion more to the deficit. So with all that debt and our deficit, what's Trump gonna day when he needs money, Saudi Arabia, China, and India tell him no, but they need some of their money back first. And just like his bankruptcy history, it's not his money that was lost, it was other investors just this time, it's us.
