The Democrats/MSM/Never Trump are running a con: and the con is the assertion that a 77 year old, addle-brained career politician will solve the problems. It is a stupid assertion. Only an idiot would believe it. But it is the assertion they are making…and with all their powers of opinion-generation, they’re going to see if they can get an electoral majority to be stupid enough to believe it.
Personally, I don’t think they can – and I also happen to think that they also know they can’t do it. So, in reality, what they’re doing right now is battle space prep for 2021. With Trump re-elected (perhaps quite resoundingly) and maybe back in full control of Congress (and this time with far more pro-Trump people in the mix), Democrats know they will be in for a rough time. So, if Trump does win – as I think they expect – they need to make certain that their side remains both white hot against Trump and certain that Trump is illegitimate. So, put out that D+10 poll showing Biden up 12. When the event comes out, the only way Trump could have won is by cheating, right?
It is also good to remember that there is an army of consultants, pollsters and talking heads who will simply be out of work if polling started to consistently show Trump heading for victory. Who the heck is doing to donate to your Democrat Pac and buy your polling data if there’s no point to it? So, there are a lot of vested interests in keeping up the appearance that Trump is doomed…and while Trump will Tweet out from time about fake news and fake polls, I don’t think he actually minds this stuff. The less the Democrats see reality, the better for Trump.
Meanwhile, the National Association of Police Organizations which endorsed Obama/Biden in 2008 and 2012 and didn’t endorse at all in 2016…has endorsed Trump. Just how many cops or family members of cops do you think are going to vote Democrat this year? One percent? Maybe two percent if Biden gets lucky? If they thought it sure that Biden would win – that if real data showed Biden up 10 or 12 points – they wouldn’t endorse Trump. They might not endorse Biden, but they wouldn’t endorse Trump. At worst, they’d keep their powder dry and hope for the best. Someone at NAPO is sure Trump will win.
The vandals of Antifa are showing themselves to be overtly anti-Christian. Plenty of statues of the Blessed Virgin have been defaced. This tells me of the essentially evil nature of Antifa even if nothing else did: everyone who hates Our Lady is heading down a pretty dark path.
On a more plus side of that, you might recall that there was an Antifa/BLM push against Saint Louis IX…threats to destroy the statue of the Saint-King in St Louis. I’ve been following for many days now the Catholics who have been holding daily prayer vigils around the statue. They get abuse hurled at them (and sometimes physical violence, as well) but they are standing firm. They pray the Rosary and other prayers and even did a Eucharistic procession around the statue. I’m mighty impressed with the courage of these Christians.
The National Museum of African American History & Culture says that things like being married and working hard and respecting authority are “White” things. Which is curious because the racists of the KKK used to say exactly the same thing. When I first saw the thing, I thought it was a joke – someone trolling. But it turns out it is real…and I bet the authors of it simply do not know what actual racism against blacks was like. It does not surprise me that they work at a museum: I figure that anyone allowed to be in charge of anything designed to propagate facts has long been taken over by ignoramouses who hate facts.
