The US economy is roaring along. The latest figures show GDP growing at an annualised rate of 4.1%.
Unemployment is also at a near half-century low. According to figures from the US Labor Department, the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits is the lowest since December 1969.
And all three major US stock markets are sitting near record highs, despite a minor sell off in the past few days of this week.
Time to celebrate?
Not for the Deep State — think entrenched politicians, career lobbyists, and senior members of intelligence agencies. These so-called swamp critters are worried.
That’s because US President Donald Trump came into office promising to drain the swamp. And if he succeeds they may find themselves out the high-paying jobs they’d been promised would last a lifetime. The elitist system they and their forbearers spent decades creating is at risk.
Hence the not so subtle battle being waged against Trump. A witch hunt that left leaning media outlets the world over have been all too eager to embrace in their efforts to paint the US President as erratic and incompetent.

Unfortunately for Trump’s enemies, the Mueller probe into his possible collusion with Russians in the 2016 election is coming up empty. And as for the dalliances Trump allegedly had with some former models and film stars…well, it’s just not an impeachable offence.
Enter The New York Times. Not content to merely report the news, the paper has become one of Trump’s most vocal critics.
The New York Times publishes cheap shot at Trump
In their latest effort to derail Trump, the NYT took the extraordinary step of publishing an anonymous opinion article highly critical of the president. The piece was purportedly penned by a senior White House official. The author slammed Trump and claimed they are part of a ‘resistance’. One ‘working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations’.
Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren was quick to leap on the latest rumours. She knows there’s little chance the Democrats will succeed in any effort to impeach Trump, the man fairly elected to lead her nation. So she made the distasteful suggestion that senior officials invoke the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution.
That Amendment states that if the president is ‘unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office’ he can be removed and the vice-president — Mike Pence in this case — would take over.
Warren’s suggestion is sure to gain her some fans among the socialist elite. But most will see it as the political cheap shot it is.
Trump’s supporters are unlikely to be shaken by this latest attempt to smear his image. In fact, his approval rating remains higher than Barack Obama’s during the same period in his presidency.
First Lady Melania Trump took aim at the anonymous author, saying their ‘cowardly actions’ were ‘sabotaging the country’.
Trump himself labelled the author a ‘gutless loser’. He mentioned the word treason as well. And he’s demanding The New York Times reveal the writer’s identity.
We imagine the anonymous author may not be sleeping all that well tonight. And we suggest The New York Times may have bitten off more than it can chew in deciding to publish what has already been labelled a treasonous article.
