By any measure, most everything connected to the economy was in a downward trend during the last years of the Obama presidency. So when the mainstream media and the Democratic leadership tell you that any good news you hear about the stock market, the economy and outlook for the country is due to President Obama’s policies having just started to work, don’t believe them.

The facts say just the opposite. The Consumer Confidence index, The Right Track/Wrong Track poll, the Business Roundtable Outlook Index, the Gallup Happiness Quotient Poll and the Dow Jones Index were all on a downward trend leading up to Trump’s election. As soon as President Trump was elected, all of these indicators immediately shot straight up.

Everyone should read the book “The Smear” by Sharyl Attkisson. The author was an award-winning investigative reporter at CBS for 20 years, and in the book she outlines the lies and devious tactics of the media. It is a real eye-opener. Once you have read it, you will be much more knowledgeable about what you read and hear and will never again take the mainstream media at their word.
