Rebel Buzz: Aretha, Trump's economy, and why California is doomed

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

One of America’s Motown icons, the Queen of Soul, has passed away.

Aretha Franklin transcended race, gender and background. She recorded her first album at 14-years-old and yet somehow, unlike nearly every other child celebrity, manage to remain “normal.”

She would go on to record almost 100 hits that landed on Billboard's R&B charts; twenty of them were number one hits. As I heard someone say yesterday, the only controversy surrounding Aretha Franklin was which one of those hits was the best...


It always shocks me to witness the advanced and impressive level of calisthenics liberals are able to perform. They are Olympic-level mental gymnasts, and their skills are becoming even more crucial as they attempt to credit our booming economy to... former President Barack Obama.

Look at all the ways our economy is soaring:

Record highs in the stock market, record low unemployment and jobless claims, 1.5 million fewer people on food stamps, $6 trillion added in wealth, 4.1 per cent GDP growth, U.S. Manufacturing Index at 33 year high...

Gosh, it sounds like whatever crap Obama made of the economy Trump inherited, Trump certainly turned things around.

And an IBD/TIPP poll released last week shows that Americans give this president an A rating on the economy. So either Americans are stupid or liberal are lying. I think we know which one is true...


Speaking of liberals and their aversion to facts and math, we here in California are doomed.

We've got a Republican trailing far behind a very far-left Democrat, Gavin Newsom, in the gubernatorial race.

Nearly everything he's talking about doing will bankrupt the state: universal preschool and child care, universal health care, higher wages across the board, higher spending on infrastructure, and 3.5 million housing units to address California's housing shortage.

The universal preschool and child care alone will cost $8 billion. I guess I wouldn't take such issue with this if I didn't know how many kids in this state were brought here illegally and are soaking up our social program resources. Take the kids back to your home country and have Grandma Rosa watch your offspring. Because the United States of America is not a daycare center.

Or maybe it is. It sounds like Gavin Newsom is trying to make it that way.

California’s problems are entirely related to too-fast growth and simply having too many people, particularly with regardst o housing supply and their water issues. You don’t get the mass migration leading to “too many people” by economic failure.

Obama created on average 215,000 jobs every month in his second term (10.4 million, Jan 2013-Dec 2016) Trump’s created about 195,000 (3.7m in 19 motnhs since Jan 2017). Somehow Obama’s a disaster and Trump’s a hero. Yeah, totally buy that one.

California’s headlong rush to stupidity was evident already 15 years ago… That’s when clear-eyed people started moving north to Oregon, Washington and Idaho… And it hasn’t abated since… Portland, Oregon evidently landed a lot of the fringe baddies and so did Seattle… Seattle is in the throes of where it’s future may lie, but already years ago, more rational people in Washington were talking about “mining the border” to keep the California coo-coos out… The obvious truth is that California is a state in “deep shit” given its current political divisions… And it’s always hard when “reality hits the fan” sooner or later…

Trump is proving them wrong so they claim Obama is the one who did it. PATHETIC!

- Aretha Franklin was a music legend. We will not see her likes again.

- The mental gymnastics are just making leftists look like liars at best & morons at worst. Trump took only months to turn around Obama’s damage.

- I’m sure the hope is that they will out Trump & he can write these blank checks & then get the rest of the country to bail out California.

Many Californians embrace the toxic anti-democratic…….

Many Californians embrace the toxic anti-democratic, anti-Western and nation destroying combo of Socialist cultural Marxism coupled with the worst parts of French post-modernism. In fact and unfortunately, many in the Western world adhere to those views. I would bet the leftists would rather the whole state become a ruin then to humble themselves ask President Trump for help. It is going to get worse since it is already pretty bad there.
California is only doomed if the people who love their state do nothing to avert its impending collapse at the hands of those who could care less.

Should read “tRump wept like a child.”

Speaking of Aretha, FOX News just yesterday placed a picture of Patti LaBelle as Aretha and called Japan “Communist Japan” in reference.

I don’t know if FOX News makes people stupid or if it’s stupid people attracted to Fox News.

Also, heard that when tRump’s military parade got postponed, witnesses claim he actually wrote like a child. Ahhh, to be Rightwing and stupid. Lol
