Saw the Trump Rally tonight – actually, the first time I went pretty much through the whole thing. I tuned in because the crowd wasn’t as large as hyped and I wanted to see how Trump did: he was a blast. I laughed out loud during his description of the walk down the ramp. But outside the “Trump” part of it, he also previewed the themes he’s going to use against Biden in the Fall…and I think the knife twist is always going to be Biden’s silence about the riots and vandalism…and now that they’ve toppled statues of Washington, Jefferson and Grant, Trump is going to be able to put Biden on the spot: if he condemns such things, he alienates his base; if he approves of them, he alienates everyone else.
Will Trump win? I believe he will. But even if he loses, I regret nothing: he’s proven himself to be the first politician since Reagan to be on my side and I’m sticking with him to the end.
It is all an op, guys: all the rioting. I know it got me worried and down for the past week…but as its ground on I, and many others, have started to see the pattern: at night (so the size of the crowd his hidden: it’s likely much smaller than advertised); the instigators stir the pot, and then take off, allowing criminals and idiots to take over; it is always in deep blue areas where the police seem entirely paralyzed…so paralyzed that after a while, you just know they were ordered to be paralyzed (we’ve had our BLM stuff in Vegas; one poor cop even got crippled for life during the protests; but Vegas – blue as it is – can’t afford to have bloody riots on the Strip…and so the cops are backed by the City and County officials and so maintain order); do everything you can to try to provoke a violent response from Trump and his supporters. And that, I think, is what they’re really looking for: dead bodies. Bodies which can be classed as the victims of Trump’s racist AmeriKKKa. At the very least they want you afraid and thinking you’ve already lost…but I also think they’ve seen the polls showing minority voters (especially younger minority voters) warming up to Trump and they hope a dose of riots will get them back on the ranch.
Trouble is, Trump didn’t take the bait…and no one on the Left actually wants to go into a GOP stronghold and stir up trouble. The street thugs who provide the riot muscle won’t come (they aren’t brave: they just want to steal stuff without real risk) and the pencil armed dweebs who make up the bulk of Antifa know they’ll actually get shot. I think that everyone is now irritated and bored with the riots…Normals are going, “Ok, you make your point, whatever the heck it was”.
Ali’s son says his Dad would have nothing but contempt for BLM. I can see it: Ali did well in this country and triumphed over genuine racism. Ali earned everything he had. He might well look at these pampered clowns and wonder what the heck they are whining about.
Mars 2020 launches soon – another rover, this one designed to look specifically for signs of ancient life. Neat thing about it: some of the samples it collects are to be returned to Earth in a joint Nasa/ESA mission in 2031. My view: I think we come up empty on life ever having been on Mars. Too small. Too cold. Lost its atmosphere and surface water too early. And that is another thing: we might well be alone in the universe…or life might be so rare that the chances of one type of life finding another are vanishingly small. For life as we know it, there just seems to be too fine a tolerance: if your planet isn’t the right size, in the right location, made up of the right materials, doesn’t have a sufficient magnetic field…it just ain’t happening. I mean, of course, absent God just making it happen. And I think if we ever do find life out there, the extremely low chances of it happening will tend to prove that God has to make it happen.
Waiting for the riots and SJW warriors and of course BLM to demand changing the names of the following buildings, highways and sites named after the former KKK officer, Grand Kleagle Robert C Byrd, who campaigned so vigorously against the Civil Rights bill and championed racial segregation. And then more riots and protests against those who praised, honored and sanctified him, a list that includes Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Barack Obama.

And don’t ignore this:
Byrd still has a statue of him in the US Capitol building. Tear it down!
While there is snickering about sabotaging the Trump rally by faking ticket requests (which is really stealing tickets from people who wanted them) it is really an admission that the only way to beat Trump is to cheat.
It’s becoming clearer and clearer that this election is going to boil down to, what kind of country do you want to live in, work in and raise kids in? Democrats can attempt to distance themselves from the people behind the Chaos, rioting, burning and looting, but NO ONE believes those people are Republicans and/or Conservatives.
That’s a good point, Spook, and one I hope will be made over and over again.
Well, I have officially been #canceled and we will see how that turns out when one person flat out lies until under oath (Shiff anyone). Bunker Boy might want to change his name to MommiesBasement but I guess that doesn’t sound as good.
Now that I have been able to replace corporate equipment with my own–think I have a few opinions to voice. Been keeping up but did not wish to infringe on my corporate masters.
Hey DB, long time no see. Hope everything is well with you and yours.
Actually better than I expected because I believe I was just terminated for being a “Racist.” Having some fun catching up and doing things I haven’t had time for before and as far as “You and yours” goes–I am fine and my Kat is a real Calico Buffalo. She is my time keeper among so many other things. Hope the same for all of Y’all since I am now from the South. Had to move North to get tot he South (Miami, Fl. -> Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill NC) but everything is well here in Durham. (Derm like Germ)
Hope everything is well for everyone here during these strange times. The left is making a big push with everything it has left and I for one am not sure how much I really care anymore. America and the founding…Constitutional Conservative Libertarian I still am but I am, after my termination, beginning to believe I shall watch “Deja Vu ~ All over again” from the side lines as Rome burns. Been fighting all my life for people that don’t want a solution.
“Bunker Boy”? I should have paid more attention. After glancing at his posts I thought his name was Binkie Boy
I’ve been getting Hillsdale College’s monthly newsletter, Imprimis, ever since my brother-in-law graduated from there back in the early 70’s. The last 3 issues got “lost” in a stack, and I just got around to reading them yesterday. The February issue offers one of the best explanations of how we got to where we are as a country that I have ever read.
Read the whole thing.
