Jobs Growth Soars in November as Payrolls Surge by 266,000
“The jobs market turned in a stellar performance in November, with nonfarm payrolls surging by 266,000 and the unemployment rate falling to 3.5%”—matching its best rate in 50 years. “Those totals easily beat the Wall Street consensus,” Jeff Cox reports. “Bottom line, America is working,” National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said. 
Pelosi Again Exposes Impeachment as Just a Cynical Political Show
-New York Post
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi stepped out from behind the curtain Thursday to order up articles of impeachment against President Trump — once again exposing the official process as merely a show. Her approach has been cavalier from the start . . . And it’s only gotten worse,” the New York Post editorial board writes.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump “lit the National Christmas Tree on Thursday night at the Ellipse in President's Park in front of the White House. Those interested in catching a glimpse of the tree — adorned with 50,000 lights and 450 giant white star ornaments — have until January 1,” Audrey McNamara reports.

“In his rush to paint Donald Trump as a lawbreaker, Mr. Schiff has himself trampled law and responsibility,” Kimberly Strassel writes. Schiff displayed a stunning abuse of power by obtaining the phone records of political rivals. “Imagine a world in which congressional partisans routinely track and expose the call lists of their political rivals and disfavored media.”

Trump’s NATO Successes
-National Review
With the 2019 NATO Summit this past week, President Trump can reflect on the fact that when he assumed office, only three NATO countries apart from the U.S. “were meeting the agreed target of devoting 2 percent of GDP to defense: the United Kingdom, Poland, and mighty Estonia. Today that number is eight, and commitments are in place to take it up to 18 out of 30 within four years,” Conrad Black writes.

For NJ, A Bright New STAR On The Horizon!

Michael L. Testa, Jr. took the oath of office earlier this week to become the new Senator for New Jersey’s 1st Legislative District.

“The residents of the 1st Legislative District sent a message when they elected a real conservative to represent them in Trenton,” said Testa. “I’ll fight for the property tax relief and school funding that our overlooked towns in South Jersey deserve, and against the extreme spending, tax, and sanctuary state policies that our hard-working families can’t afford.”

Testa will serve on the Senate Budget & Appropriations Committee and the Senate Labor Committee. We had the opportunity to interview Mike on our TV show, The Advocates earlier this year and we immediately recognized the makings of a winner and someone who will be an extraordinary public servant.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to be a member of the Budget Committee where I’ll have a voice on the most important fiscal matters that impact New Jersey families,” said Testa. “Serving on the Labor Committee will allow me to counter the expensive and unreasonable mandates being pushed by Democrats that are driving employers out of business and jobs out of New Jersey.”

The senator, his wife Julie, and their son and two daughters live in Vineland.

“My wife and I want our children to have the same opportunities that we had growing up in New Jersey,” added Testa. “The sad truth is that too many families are looking at growing tax bills, jobs heading south, and they don’t see a future in the Garden State for their kids. I’m going to spend every day as a senator working to restore common-sense to Trenton and fighting to stop the parade of moving vans from New Jersey.”

AMAZING! Trump Economy Smashes All Expectations!

Once again, the Trump Economy absolutely smashed “expert” predictions with today’s Jobs Report: 
  • The unemployment rate fell to 3.5%—matching its lowest level in 50 years.
  • Economists had expected the economy to add 185,000 jobs. It added 266,000.
  • Economists had predicted 15,000 more manufacturing jobs. We got 54,000
  • Compared with last year, average hourly wages are up more than 3%. 
  • The number of Americans working rose to 158,593,000—a record high.

Watch Biden, Pelosi Lose It When Challenged!

When challenged and asked legitimate questions -- either by an ordinary citizen or a member of the news media -- DemocRATS like Pelosi and Biden become unhinged. When confronted they can't answer a direct question clearly and simply, so they engage in name-calling, vituperation, vindictiveness and personal attacks.
Yes, they preach tolerance and understanding but they do not tolerate those who challenge them nor do they make any effort to understand and respond civilly to questions posed to them.
THIS is what Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) looks like!

The Beginning, The Middle And The END Of The Story!

THIS Is Why We LOVE Kellyanne Conway!

Oh, yeah -- it takes a street-smart Joizee gal to put put a presumptuous, biased, condescending, elitist professor in her place!

Evidence? Liberal Professors Don't Need Any!

3 million Americans vs. 3 liberal professors

The worst-kept secret in Washington is that House Democrats have already made up their minds about impeachment. Despite the far left’s relentless push for three years to undo the 2016 election, Democrat leaders are trying to make you believe that their process is a fair and nonpartisan one.

No American is buying that sales pitch.

It’s little wonder why. After two weeks of testimony from “fact witnesses”—most of whom had never even so much as met President Donald J. Trump—public support for impeachment has only fallen. So today, Congress called on four “legal experts” to try to give some Constitutional cover to their scheme.

 Bombshell moment: This would be the first impeachment in history without evidence of a crime.

You won’t be shocked to learn that three of these four witnesses turned out to have a lengthy history of animosity toward President Trump: 
  • Prof. Pamela Karlan is a Democratic donor who suggested the 2016 election could be “illegitimate.” She first raised the prospect of impeaching President Trump in 2016—before he even took office. She’s also argued against the Trump Administration in court.
  • Prof. Noah Feldman has spent nearly 3 years calling for impeachment—for any reason you can imagine. Less than two months after Inauguration Day, Feldman was arguing for impeachment . . . because of a tweet.  He even called for impeachment because he disliked the President’s (perfectly Constitutional) use of the pardon power.
  • Prof. Michael Gerhardt spent years working for Democratic officials and campaigns, repeatedly helping Democratic senators fight to block the appointment of conservative judges and justices—including now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Zero self-awareness—that’s what it takes for House Democrats, in the midst of an effort to persuade mainstream Americans that Democrats are being fair, to call in liberal professors who are just as partisan as they are.

But there was one expert that Democrats probably wish wasn’t on the House floor today. Legal scholar Jonathan Turley, who says he isn’t a Trump supporter and didn’t vote for the President, highlighted everything wrong with Democrats’ sham process with just one line.

If you impeach this President, Turley said, “It is an abuse of power. It’s your abuse of power,” he told Congressional Democrats.

My personal views of President Trump are as irrelevant to my impeachment testimony as they should be to your impeachment vote,” he said to the House Judiciary Committee panel. “I’m concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger.”

You won’t find a better explanation of this impeachment sham than that.

WATCH: President Trump wraps up NATO Summit 

While Congress had its hands full today doing absolutely nothing it promised to do for the American people, President Trump represented our great country at the final day of the 2019 NATO Summit in London.

President Trump is making NATO stronger. Since he took office, our NATO allies have begun to meet his challenge and step up their collective defense spending to the tune of $130 billion more per year. By 2024, that number is set to rise to $400 billion.

In fact, one of today’s highlights was a lunch meeting with nations dubbed the “2 percenters.” That’s a reference to the 8 U.S. allies who have already met their promise of committing 2 percent of their GDPs to defense spending.

Watch: President Trump meets with “2 percenter” NATO members!

So Much For A Fair, Unbiased, Expert Witness . . .

THIS Is The Clip That Should Make All The News!

Here's Your Chance To Make The Holiday Special!

Hey, Pay Attention To These Important Stories!

Trump Is Trying to Save NATO By Demanding Members Pay a Fair Share

“President Trump intends to keep pushing at this week’s NATO summit for other alliance members to up their defense spending, but it’s worth noting the success he’s already had,” the New York Post editorial board writes.

“Since 2006, each member nation has been supposed to spend 2 percent of GDP on defense. Yet only the United States and two other members hit that mark in 2014, when NATO formally re-committed to the goal. Now eight European countries are on track to meet it this year: Britain, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania.”

The bottom line: “For all the complaints that the president has been alienating America’s allies, it sure looks like he has strengthened the most important US alliance.”

This year, the theme is ‘The Spirit of America.’ The 2019 decorative approach features glittery patriotism throughout 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” The official White House Christmas Tree arrived last week, Natacha Larnaud reports for CBS News
“Forgetting the lesson from the boy who cried wolf, Democrats have lost their grip on the public’s attention toward their incessant schemes for dumping President Trump . . . The relentless yammering for a legislative coup is fading into background noise, tuned out by a nation anxious to move ahead,” The Washington Times editorial board writes. 
With only seven legislative days left in the year, House leadership has all but tabled any real agenda for working Americans, including passing the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement. Speaker Nancy Pelosi now says she believes “there is not enough time” left this year to vote on USMCA, despite House Democrats spending nearly 30 legislative days on impeachment, Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) writes in the Washington Examiner.

A Special Message For The Youth Of America!

Here's Why Fitzherbert Is The Best Choice In CD2

By Dan Cirucci
from the Save Jersey blog (reprinted with permission)
In a book titled “American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures in North America,” the author Colin Woodard identifies 11 distinct cultures that have historically divided the US.
It’s a fascinating look at the cultural dynamics of the nation with deep insights into our politics and regional political differences. But here’s the thing that really struck me: New Jersey is divided into two distinct zones. North Jersey is grouped with New York City into a zone that, is “materialistic, with a profound tolerance for ethnic and religious diversity” while South Jersey is grouped with Pennsylvania and much of the midwest into a group that comprises a “welcoming middle-class society” and the“culture of the American Heartland.” And while the author seems to place North Jersey into a decidedly blue camp, he puts South Jersey into “America’s great swing region.”
Obviously, this analysis held with the recent GOP sweep in New Jersey’s 1st legislative district (LD1) which encompasses a huge chunk of the southernmost portion of the state from the Delaware Bay to the Atlantic Ocean. This area (which Donald Trump won in 2016) was ripe for a Republican takeover and this latest triumph would appear to threaten the reign of freshman Congressman Jeff Van Drew who faces re-election next year.
Someone who has worked tirelessly to revitalize the GOP in this region is Brian Fitzherbert, former Chair of the Atlantic County Young Republicans. Fitzherbert is a veritable dynamo who has proved to be an effective team-builder who knows how to motivate people. In fact, to assist the victorious LD1 candidates, Fitzherbert (who’s also Vice Chair of the YR Federation of New Jersey) called in a Young Republican army of neighboring states to canvas for Testa, McClellan, and Simonsen. In October, nearly 50 YRs knocked on almost 3,000 doors in one day. That’s grassroots organization.
I’ll bet they’ll be back to assist Fitzherbert in 2020. Why? Because now, Fitzherbert is seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Van Drew and he’s reaching out to every township, town and borough in the congressional district.
Fitzherbert is smart, young, resourceful and absolutely relentless. And he’s already piled up an impressive list of endorsements from GOP elected officials, county committee people and the like. On top of that, his campaign organization is not just up and running but is humming along smoothly, holding events, raising money and gaining exposure for the candidate in places where it counts. In no time at all, Fitzherbert has managed to gain a leg up on possible primary opponents.
I’ve watched Fitzherbert closely and have questioned him extensively for my blog and on my TV program, The Advocates. He’s well versed on the issues facing the district and presents sound, pragmatic ideas and policies to back up his proposals. His mere presence is a stark contrast to the veteran Van Drew who, if elected to a second term, will be almost 68 years old when he takes the oath of office. A battle-scared politician, Van Drew has held elected office of one sort or another for nearly 30 years. But Fitzherbert is a businessman, engineer, and project manager with fresh ideas who doesn’t fit the old-style political mold. He’s completely unconventional. And while Van Drew is a native New Yorker, Fitzherbert is New Jersey born and bred.
Clearly, New Jersey is different. It’s special. And it’s also bifurcated and the unique needs, values, and concerns of South Jersey must be represented vigorously and effectively in Washington and elsewhere. South Jersey deserves a Congressman who can deliver, not a career politician and veritable placeholder.
My money’s on Brian Fitzherbert!

Leading NOW For All The Right Reasons!

President Trump is getting NATO back on track for American taxpayers 

This week, world leaders are gathering in London for the 2019 North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Summit, celebrating 70 years since the beginning of the historic Western alliance.

For decades, NATO members worked together to confront the world’s toughest challenges. But, the alliance’s ability to accomplish that mission became severely weakened. In 2017, when President Trump took office, only four of our NATO allies were meeting their defense spending obligations under the treaty. Meanwhile, past U.S. leaders—along with their counterparts overseas—were happy to let Americans foot the bill.

President Trump promised to change all that. And he has.

 Watch: NATO is getting back on track!

A hallmark of the Trump Administration foreign policy is making sure America isn’t asked to be the world’s sole policeman. For NATO, that means strengthening the alliance by making clear that all members must meet their responsibilities under the agreement, which spells out that 2 percent of GDP be committed to investing in defense.

Once President Trump made his expectations clear, a funny thing happened: Today, nine members have met their targets, adding $130 billion to total defense budgets. Moreover, two-thirds of our NATO allies are on track to hit the 2 percent goal by 2024.

There’s work left to do, which is why President Trump is keeping the pressure on. The United States still accounts for nearly 70 percent of combined NATO defense spending. But under this Administration, we’ve seen the biggest improvement on that front in a generation.

“We are making real progress, most importantly on the burden sharing,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in London today. “And your leadership on defense spending is having a real impact,” he told President Trump.

“This is unprecedented. This is making NATO stronger. And it shows that this Alliance is adapting, responding when the world is changing.”

Here are some highlights from President Trump’s busy first day at the summit:

Spectacular Is The ONLY Way To Describe It!

The White House has unveiled its 2019 Christmas decorations. First Lady Melania Trump announced "The Spirit of America" as this year's theme. (Dec. 2)

We Need To Relive THIS Now More Than Ever!

The Philadelphia Eagles have been performing so poorly lately that it's easy to forget that less than two years ago they were the Super Bowl Champs. They were really a Cinderella team that defied the odds. And in true Philly style, they embraced their underdog status and propelled themselves and the city on to victory over smug and contented opponents who thought the championship was their hallowed right.
So, let's go back right now and view that whole magical moment through the eyes of Thor Bowers, an impressionable and exceptionally talented sixth grader who wrote the following personal narrative titled The Day They Finally Won:

I had been waiting for this day for two weeks. Some other family members, like my grandpa, had been waiting for this moment for over sixty years. Yes, you heard that right; sixty years! The Eagles were in the Super Bowl!

The Eagles were having a great season, easily the best team in the league. Everyone was confident and expecting the Eagles to win. That was until, of course, we lost our MVP like quarterback, Carson Wentz to a leg injury. Our backup Nick Foles took over. Suddenly everyone doubted us, we were the underdogs in every game from then on. Philadelphia, the craziest sports city in America, didn’t like that. All the doubts were just fuel for us to win.

I went to the Eagles first playoff game on the road to a Super Bowl. We were playing the Atlanta Falcons, last year's conference champs. Favored or not, the Eagles stadium was sold out, and it always will be.

We started the game as 3-point underdogs. The temperature was a bone-chilling fifteen degrees at kickoff, plus the wind, which made it feel so much colder. They were leading most of the game, until two field-goals took the lead, but the Falcons drove to the 2-yard line with less than a minute to go. It was fourth-down. The crowd was going wild. This wasn’t the play of the game; it was the play of the season. I remember the levels of anxiety as he threw it to the best wide receiver in the league, Julio Jones, who would catch a wide-open 99 out of 100 times, but he dropped it! The crowd went wild. I was hugging random people in that moment of chaos.

A week later, this time I was in the warmth of my house, the Eagles played the Vikings, again the underdog. The Vikings scored on their first drive, and they made it look easy. Then, BOOM. We scored thirty-eight unanswered points, and the Vikings looked helpless. The level of confidence skyrocketed as we soared past the entire NFC and sailed into the Super Bowl.

Finally, the day had come. The Eagles were set to play the Patriots in US Bank Stadium in the frigid land of Minnesota. We had our friends, the Coles, and my grandparents, over at my house to watch the game. The scene was the most dramatic scene possible. The Patriots, an NFL dynasty, led by a hall of fame quarter-back Tom Brady, versus the winningest team in league to never win a championship, the Eagles.

The game started well. A field-goal and then an AMAZING touchdown catch by Alshon Jeffery had us leading 9 to 3 early in the game. The remainder of the first half was uneventful... wait, I forgot something. I only forgot the greatest trick play in NFL history. The signature moment of Super Bowl 52, the Philly Special. See, it was fourth-down at the one-yard line. Thirty seconds to go in the second quarter. Everyone thought we were going to kick a field goal and take an even bigger lead. Nope. That’s just not what Philadelphia does. The play went like this: Nick Foles walked up to the O-line to change the play, a normal thing in football. But then, before he walked back to take the snap, the snap went to Corey Clement, our running back, and he pitched it back to our tight-end Trey Burton, who quickly threw it to a wide open Foles for a touchdown.

Thor Bowers November 11th, 2019 Personal Narrative

22-12 was our score at halftime, which showed no indication whatsoever of the madness that was to come. During a depressing third-quarter, Tom Brady did Tom Brady things, and he brought his team closer and closer to taking the lead. Luckily, they wouldn’t take the lead in the third quarter. Nope. That would happen in the fourth quarter.

Yup, you heard that right, the Patriots scored and took their first lead of the game with around eight minutes left in the game. Everyone at my house found their own depressed spot. We were staring at the TV, not saying a word. We were sad, exhausted of the same ending every season, a humiliating loss. Things were looking up slightly though, as we were slowly creeping toward the end zone. I was begging for a win. Little did I know, the best part was yet to come.

Third and seven. Fifteen yards from a super bowl championship. We watched as Nick Foles threw it to Zach Ertz, and he ran and dove for the end zone. The play was immediately under review. Did he score? And for ten agonizingly nervous minutes, the refs talked amongst each other. Finally, they walked out and shouted

“The ruling on the field stands, touchdown.” I jumped up and down, screaming. We had taken the lead! 38-33 was the score with two minutes left. But we only had one problem. Tom Brady and the Patriots are known for their legendary comebacks. The previous year, the Patriots came back from a 25- point deficit to win in Super Bowl 51 against the Falcons. A five-point comeback with minutes left would be nothing to them.

Our defense had been horrible so far in the game. So far, we had let the Patriots offense cruise down the field with ease. Our defense needed one stop. And that stop we would get. Brady looked to throw, but as he threw it, defensive end Brandon Graham ripped the ball from Brady’s grasp, and the ball ended up into the hands of Darek Barnett. Our living room exploded with chaos. We had the ball with the lead! We all thought the game was over for sure. But little did we know at the time, the game was far from over.

We were held to a field goal, and with :58 showing on the clock, they got the ball back, and they could still score a touchdown and a two-point conversion to send the game into overtime. They executed their offence perfectly, and in almost no time, they were forty yards from a game tying touchdown with nine seconds on the clock. The game already had the most yards in NFL history. I was walking into the room as the play happened. Brady took the snap. He ran around, evaded the sack and threw a desperation ball that felt like it was in the air forever. He threw it as far as he could to his tight end, who was surrounded by eagles players. It was a sea of hands as every player reached for the ball. The ball bounced around and hit the green turf right as time expired at US Bank stadium. The game was over! We were Super Bowl champions!

Fireworks were going off nearby, it was midnight, and we were partying. The winning feeling was amazing. We pulled off our underdog masks as Super Bowl Champs!
