In four months voters will go to the polls to determine who controls Congress in what is being promoted as the most critical midterm election in the nation’s history.
As of today, all of those smug smirks have been completely wiped off the faces of Democrats and their media toadies who have all but stopped referring to that “blue wave” that was going to be the mandate on the reversal of the 2016 election and the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
But funny thing happened on the way to the gallows, the Dems began losing ground with the electorate after their big Russian collusion scam fizzled well short of the finish line. In addition, Trump’s policies have energized the economy and unless you are a lazy slacker or shameless moocher like a member of the Democrat base, that is one of the real issues that real Americans truly care about.
Not only have the Democrats not spoken in positive terms of what they would do to bolster the job market, fix the disastrous health insurance system or provide for a better future for the children of voters, they have done the exact opposite.
Party leaders like Nancy Pelosi have vowed to raise taxes if she regains the Speaker’s gavel, they have turned to the promotion of socialism as an alternative and the only children that they give a rat’s ass about are illegal aliens. This in addition to race-baiting, calls for violence and spewing wacky conspiracy theories none of which are characteristics of a healthy – or sane – political party.
The latest jobs report is only going to make their job tougher to prove to the American people why they deserve to be returned to power and why they should impeach the legitimately elected president.
The numbers are very grim for Dems with an addition of 213,000 last month according to the Labor Department.

The numbers are off just a tad from May but that could be expected with a good deal of the hiring for seasonal summer jobs having to take place before June.
Via Fox Business:
The U.S. economy added a higher-than-expected number of jobs in June, with 213,000 positions created versus analysts’ expectations for 195,000.
The unemployment rate moved higher, off an 18-year low, to 4% from May’s 3.8%. Economists say the slight move higher is a positive as it reflects more workers entering the workforce after sitting on the sidelines, drawn by the plethora of jobs. In June, 601,000 Americans entered the labor force, and not all found jobs.
This trend comes as companies are bemoaning the lack of available labor.
And Nancy Pelosi just vomited into her oatmeal.
