W. Bush led the U.S. through the most successfully ground war in modern history defeating Saddam Hussein’s army in 100 hours, earning him an 80% approval rating 1 year out from reelection. Everyone thought Bush was a sure win. But the media conspired with the Democrats to sabotage the economy. Back in 1991, there was no internet or Fox News. There was just the big three; ABC, NBC and CBS. CNN was new but growing. So the entire country got their news from just those limited sources. By talking down the economy every day for over a year and by focusing on every negative economic angle for over a year, the liberal mainstream media successfully convinced the average person that the U.S. economy was in a recession. And in fact in 1991 the economy contracted by .01%. But in 1992, during the election year, the U.S. economy grew by over 3.5%. That’s huge growth for the US. (Source: BEA, National Income and Product Accounts Tables: Table 1.1.5. Nominal GDP, Table 1.1.1. GDP Growth Rate. Table 1.1.6 Real Gross Domestic Product, Adjusted for inflation using 2012 dollars). In 2018, under Trump the economy grew by 2.9%. 2nd quarter 2019: 2.1 percent 1st quarter 2019: 3.1 percent According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, “real gross domestic product (GDP) increased 2.1 percent in the second quarter of 2019, according to the “advance” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the first quarter, real GDP increased 3.1 percent.” That means the U.S. economy is on fire. The only thing that could stop this economic Trump Train is an asteroid, nuclear war or the Democrat controlled news media. In the end, economies are governed by investors and consumer’s perceptions. Fear and greed battle each other within us all like a bipolar teenagers driving all economic decisions. So if people see bad news every day for a year, they fear losing money. Smart investors also also fear what other people’s perceptions are. If one were to take a look at the news coverage in 1992, one would think the U.S. economy was doomed forever when in reality it was booming. That perception helped Liberals defeat President Bush in 1992 and they are hoping to repeat their big lie in 2020 by convincing enough uneducated and misinformed Americans that Trump crashed Obama’s great economy with trade wars with China. Make no mistake; Dems’ Psychological war has begun against the American People by targeting the U.S. economy hoping to create enough suffering to defeat President Trump next year.
