  1. Was that former SPP stud Will Hill making the game-ending INT against Dallas? Good to see him back on the field.
  2. This made me snort my afternoon coffee through my nose. Friggin’ hilarious! 😂
  3. This happened at Shabazz HS.
  4. These people are the worst. And they claim to be so "woke". FOH
  5. So a new factory will automatically have hundreds of employees? Seems like you are cherry picking. Listen, at the end of the day, come November...Trump wins big...there's no denying that our nation is doing extremely well. Americans are happy (well some of you anyway 😄). All leading to a big win in November. #KAG
  6. CLAIM: President Trump claimed that America has gained 12,000 new factories under his administration after losing 60,000 factories under the previous two administrations. This claim is true. The Bureau of Labor tracks the number of manufacturing establishments from quarter to quarter. The United States had 398,837 such establishments at the start of George W. Bush’s presidency in 2001 and 343,972 manufacturing establishments at the end of Barack Obama’s presidency in 2017. That’s a drop of 54,865. The preliminary data for the second quarter of 2019, the most recent dataset the Bureau of Labor offers, says there are now 356,046 manufacturing establishments. That’s an increase of 12,074 since 2017. For some additional context, the United States saw a drop of 45,194 manufacturing establishments during the duration of Bush’s presidency and a loss of 9,671 during Obama’s presidency. The low was in the first quarter of 2013 when the number dipped to 333,565.
  7. CLAIM: "The median household income is now at the highest rate ever." This claim is true. The U.S. Census has been tracking median household income since 1984. In 2018, the last year recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau, household median income was at $63,179, the highest number recorded. Some private company studies say that in June 2019 the median household income was $64,430. However, the Census Bureau hasn’t put out official numbers for 2019 yet.

  8. CLAIM: “As a result of our unprecedented efforts, illegal crossings are down 75 percent since May -- dropping eight straight months in a row.”So far, this claim is true but one month of data is not yet public.The VERIFY Team took a look at data provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The agency broke down the total number of border apprehensions on the southwest border on a monthly basis. The data demonstrates that the apprehensions peaked in May, 2019, when it skyrocketed to 144,116 apprehensions. According to the data, these arrests have dropped every single month since, and reached 40,620 in December, 2019. The data for January, 2020, has not yet been released to the public by CBP. If the number of apprehensions drop in January, this would in fact be eight straight months.The drop from May, 2019 to December, 2019 is a reduction of roughly 72 percent.
  9. CLAIM: “In 8 years under the last administration, over 300,000 working-age people DROPPED OUT of the workforce. In just three years of my administration, 3.5 MILLION working-age people have JOINED the workforce.” This claim is true, but needs context. The number of people currently in the workforce is reflected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics “Labor Force Participation rate.” The labor force participation rate is the portion of the entire civilian population age 16 and older that is either employed or currently looking for work in the last four weeks. During President Obama’s two terms in office, the rate dropped from a high of 65.7 to 62.7 by the end of his terms. Since President Trump took office, the rate has grown from 62.8 percent to 63.2 percent. That comes out to roughly 3.7 million more people joining the workforce since President Trump took office. It’s worth noting that it’s not known whether the decrease under President Obama was actually due to people “dropping out” of the workforce as Trump claimed. At the time, the Obama administration attributed the decrease to retiring post- World War II Baby Boomers.
  10. So they fact-checked the SOTU and they found that what the President said was....TRUE. Aren’t TDS folks always telling us about how he always lies? https://www.wtsp.com/mobile/article/news/nation-world/verify-fact-checking-president-trumps-2020-state-of-the-union-address/67-6586fc8e-2556-4878-bd5a-2f7e73da31c4
  11. Best way to watch the SOTU last night.
  12. Hudson County has a long list of guys that played professionally. Add in the fact that HC was always a hotbed of basketball talent, the list of athletes is outstanding.
  13. Big upset in hoops...PC beats #11 SJR tonight 61-58. DBP also beat #13 Paterson Kennedy
