Dan Celia: Democrats and Their Allies Hoping for a Market Crash
Liberals and Mainstream Media Will Do Anything to Hurt Trump, Including Undermining a Strong Economy
PHILADELPHIA—Liberals, Democrats, socialists, members of the mainstream media and even some economists seem to believe if they continue to talk down this economy, the “prophecy” will be self-fulfilled.
Liberals are desperate to stop President Donald Trump, and many on the left want the U.S. economy to fail in order to bring him down and hurt his reelection chances, says nationally syndicated host and biblically responsible investing authority Dan Celia.
Case in point: a CNBC headline recently warned that Americans are worried about the economy—an ‘ominous sign’ for Trump’s reelection prospects.
“Fortunately for America, the left’s rooting for economic collapse hasn’t made it happen,” Celia said. “The left wants to reinstitute the regulatory burden that was relieved by this president. The left wants to do away with many of the president’s policies that have grown this economy, which will only hurt the American people and return families to the same stagnation they experienced for eight years under Democrat leadership.”
Celia noted that Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said recently, “Our economy is currently performing very well overall, with strong job creation and gradually rising wages. In fact, by many national-level measures, our labor market is very strong.’’
Celia also noted in a commentary that economists have no reason to be concerned about the pace of hiring either.
“Being on track to a better than 3 percent GDP number, with the lowest unemployment rate since 1969, wages advancing to 3.1 percent from earlier this year—the best since 2009, per the Department of Labor—I would argue that it is the fastest hiring pace since 2006,” he said.
The economy-squashing efforts are nothing new. Even this summer, liberal HBO host Bill Maher stated: “I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”
Not to be outdone, New York Times’ writer Paul Krugman said the day after President Trump’s election: “So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.”
Celia discusses these and other global and economic headlines on his daily, three-hour “Financial Issues” program, heard on about 650 television and radio stations nationwide and reaching millions more on several television networks. Through the program, writing and daily interactions, Celia, who leads Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM, www.FinancialIssues.org), has helped people of faith honor God with their finances and be free from a fear of money.
