Credibility

Credibility is the quality of being believed or trusted. How much credibility can the media and the left get by tying to shoot down everything the President does. President Trump is experiencing a great deal of success and he is achieving a lot, but the left and the media are sniping at his heels over nonsense.

The tax bill that passed this year lowers taxes for everyone, but reduces the deduction for state taxes, that does provide an inconvenience for the high tax states. Revenues at both the Federal and State levels are rising, the unemployment rate is still going down. During the Obama years the unemployment rate went down but the workforce participation rate went down as well. With fewer people looking for jobs the unemployment rate when down without new jobs and more people working. In the Trump years more than one million people went back into the workforce and the unemployment rate still went down. The corporate tax breaks caused the creation of more jobs and more people are working, earning money and paying taxes. The media and the left are criticizing the tax bill because it gives a tax break to the wealthy; The wealthy pay more taxes than all of us, they will always get a break when taxes are lowered, but that is a good thing, they have the money to spend and invest, their tax breaks are a big reason more money is invested and more jobs are created.

North Korea released three men who were detained. As talks approach with South Korea, North Korea, and the USA North Korea released these three hostages in a show of good faith. This positive step in relations with an aggressive potential nuclear power, President Trump has been criticized and chastised for how he’s talked to and about North Korea. Significant progress has been made in relations between North Korea and the USA, because of President Trump, but the media only criticizes him for his tone, his language and his attitude.

He moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem, that was a promise that he made while campaigning for office, but he did it, previous Presidents promised it but failed to deliver. That was a big step forward in Middle East Peace.

At what point does the media lose all credibility for failing to report the facts. The media is still screaming how he isn’t fit for the office, they still scream about how he’s an embarrassment, but he keeps moving forward and achieving real results.

As we approach the mid-term elections, there’s going to be a great deal of coverage on the performance of the republican party and the President, that coverage will almost certainly not be positive and encouraging. The success of the President and his Administration will be obvious and it will be reported by some organizations. President Trump will Tweet his accomplishments regularly. Republican Candidates will use that success in their campaigns, Democrat candidates will argue the success and the facts, but the facts will be the facts and can be supported. Failing to report accurately will be very obvious, their failure to report accurately will be a topic of discussion in this election, Credibility will be an issue.

The amount of success the President is achieving and the piss ant media sniping at his heels doesn’t give the media much credibility, those people who haven’t already lose faith with the media will lose it during this election because the contrast is going to be so stark. It’s going to be more black and white and less gray.

More candidates that are not from the political class will be running for office. More of them will win, more will be in office. Much of President Trump’s success comes from his “outsider” Experience and so will theirs.

The credibility of the media and the democrats will be big news as this year’s campaigns progress. You can’t shine shit! The media’s credibility has been shit for many years and it’s has dropped since President Trump was elected.
