It is Now Campaign 2020

Forget the Experts, I think: what will happen on November 3rd, being in the future, is unknown. I personally think that Trump is heading for a big win. I’ve got a few data points which suggest it…but so much in in flux that no one can really say what the public mind is. But, in the end, I expect the Convention themes to play out. The Democrats were all about how dark and miserable the times are and how we must all repent of our sins…the Republicans were all about fighting through the bad times because we’re the greatest nation, ever. I suspect that a majority still loves America.

I also suspect that a majority is turned off by endless riots. I mean, for goodness sake, you’ve made your point, Lefties! Give it a freaking rest. But someone in the DNC said that the riots would turn people away from Trump (in fact, Biden’s campaign intern for Twitter pretty much Tweeted exactly that out this morning). And, hey: maybe the people will? I don’t think so, but anything in possible. But Biden’s recent half-hearted condemnation of the violence (not the riots or the rioters) indicates that Team Biden is worried about how things are going…Biden’s scheduled campaign appearance in Minnesota, which last went GOP in 1972, it a gigantic warning bell. But Team Biden has also apparently ordered the rioters to turn it up to 11…they practically assaulted people leaving the White House yesterday.

Trump seems happy, engaged and geared up. Democrats are already talking up not having debates at all. Biden mostly remains out of sight. Harris gave the response to Trump’s acceptance speech. I’m feeling pretty good. Secrets is up for pre-order (hint, hint, guys; go buy it!).

Let’s have some fun and then win the election.

    I suspect that a majority still loves America.

    And I suspect it’s a rather sizable majority. I don’t think most dyed-in-the-wool Democrats have any idea just how sizable.

    Black activists are right now defending convicted felons and their right to rape women, and Al Sharpton is collecting a paycheck on the National Mall. It’s a beautiful scene.

    I personally think that Trump is heading for a big win. I’ve got a few data points which suggest it

    One I’ll bet you’re not thinking about is the stock market. S&P 500 and NASDAQ are at all-time highs, and the DJIA is within about 3% of it’s all-time high. That translates into anyone who has a 401K, IRA or SEP having more money for retirement. It’s not a stretch to suggest that the policies promised by a Biden/Harris administration will devastate financial markets.

      This also tells us that the “money” people are convinced of a Trump win. There would be more sell off and hedge buying if they thought Biden had a chance.

    For the life of me I can not figure out why no one in the media, not even Fox has reported that Jacob Blake was a convicted felon with a warrant for his arrest, and had a weapon in the car along with his children. The police had no choice but to apprehend this man. These are pertinent facts that are going completely unreported. Really an indictment on our national media.

    • Retired Spook August 28, 2020 / 7:27 pm

      Pretty simple — it doesn’t fit the preconceived narrative of institutional racism inherent in law enforcement.

    • Amazona August 29, 2020 / 11:49 am

      As for Fox, they are lost. I have looked at Fox a couple of times lately, other than the late night opinion shows (which are pretty good) and it is just like the other Agenda Media. They use the same language, spout the same lies, the chyrons run the same misleading garbage. They are not going to step up.

      What we need is a a consortium of wealthy conservatives to fund some well-produced half hour or hour long shows, pay to run them on prime time network TV and then keep running them on cable channels, the ones full of nonstop infomercials. I won’t contribute to the RNC but I would send money to some group actually DOING something. I think a lot of people would.

      What would happen? Well, the network would get targeted, which might show them the dangers of being in a mob-controlled society, and also learn the lesson being learned by Mayor Ted in Portland. Outrage would explode at the very idea of the truth being exposed. Every conservative would watch, and the grass roots of the conservative movement would probably be happy to pay for air time if no advertisers could be found. A lot of squishies would watch, because they are confused and know they are being led around by their collective noses but don’t know what to do about it. Liberals would watch, so they could wallow in their outrage and fury.

      The media talking heads would be exploding, and because they are not smart enough to ignore what they don’t want people to think about the episodes would be the only topic on most of those shows, sparking even more interest and going even farther to illustrate their lies and their stupidity.

      And it wouldn’t take much. On a show named, for example, “Just A Little More Information…..” it would not take long to explain that Jacob Blake was a felon with a record of violence and resisting arrest, that police had been called to the scene because he was threatening people, that he became violent with the police, that he assaulted an officer trying to arrest him and then ran to his car where he reached in, obviously reaching for something, while ignoring demands to stop and show his hands. A clip of the traffic stop where a man reached back into his car and came out with a gun and shot at the officer, explaining that police are now taught to never let a suspect reach into a vehicle, would be helpful here. Then the comment that in fact there was a knife in the car that he could have reached if not stopped. Five minutes explaining what really happened and touching on the elements that go through an officer’s mind in a situation like that, including the need to prevent a possible hostage situation from developing if Blake were to drive off with the children, would go a long way toward clearing up the fog of lies and hysteria the Left has purposely churned up around this event.

      Three short segments per episode would be so valuable. They could show some police training videos. For example, I saw one illustrating how quickly a man with a knife can reach an officer. People don’t realize that. But in my Concealed Carry class we were taught how quickly we could be injured or killed by someone with a knife, and police know this.

      And at the end of every episode I would have the message that every person injured or killed by an officer had initiated the event by his own actions.

    Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris clarified that the Democrats’ plan for a nationwide mask mandate wouldn’t force people into masks.

    And you can keep your doctor too.

    Just imagine living in a world governed by these Democrats. Well actually we don’t have to imagine, just think of California. Small businesses destroyed and shut down, no school, no sports, no electricity, homeless people shitting in the street, and fires everywhere.

    Comedy Central … Ali Velshi with MSNBC just delivered a 15 minute lecture on what it means to be conservative and then brought on Jennifer Rubin to explain conservatism and how Trump violates all principles. It doesn’t get any better than that.

    UPDATE: Ali Velshi just stated that he “longs” for a two party system because he “wants his ideas challenged” although he says “a lot of his colleagues think Republicans should no longer have a voice” – yes he actually said that to which Jennifer Rubin responded by saying that the “cult followers” of Trump need to be silenced. This just happened on MSNBC

    And here we are again:

    Cari Champion: “For those who are at home watching and say that they’re tired of hearing about Black Lives Matter … We’re exhausted asking for the simple equality, we don’t want revenge, we just want equality.”

    Alright Cari honey, other than affirmative action, welfare support systems, free healthcare, a Black Caucus in Congress to specifically address your community, your own BET TV entertainment network, and prominent positions in the media, government, and entertainment … how much more equality would you like??

    Instead of lecturing us, how about if you tell your men to stay home and raise their children? That would be nice

    Sometimes a single sentence just jumps out at you and makes you believe in karma. Or justice.

    Security for @tedwheeler’s condo said a while ago they called police but no one has showed up so far

    What? Cops didn’t show up to rescue Mayor Ted? Gee, I wonder why.

    And in the meantime Mayor Ted is curled up in the fetal position sucking his thumb and wondering why the mob is going after him. Did he not pander enough? Did he fail to appease them adequately? Did he not lick enough boots? Wasn’t his nasty letter to President Trump insulting enough?

    Maybe he can engage in a public apology and self-abasement, which is after all the Leftist model

    An interesting and hopeful development. I am not a gamer, and just happened to stumble upon something regarding a game called Call of Duty and its new game, which features a very realistic Ronald Reagan and is about the dangers of the Left. So I went to a link and found this gem which I am not just recommending—I am asking you to take the 22 minutes it will take and watch it. Then watch it again. Then send it as many people as you can.

    Disclosure: I am biased, because he touches on themes I have been yammering on about for years now—-the need for the Left to succeed by destabilizing a society and it the ways it accomplishes this, including semantic manipulation. This guy is charming and easy to listen to, and the video is so full of vital information you really should take notes.

    I did. This is one: About subversion: the goal of subversives is to “…alter their perception of reality so by the end of the process of subversion they not only don’t recognize you as an enemy they turn to you and say “You are the thing that is going to save us”. If this is not a portrait of where this nation is being herded by the Left I don’t know what is. This IS the message of Joe Biden, et al

        Interesting and thanks for pointing this out. We need more messages like this in more venues.

      • Amazona August 29, 2020 / 1:31 pm

        Send it to people and ask them to listen to it and send it on. It is such an important message, and resonates so loudly with what we are seeing day in and day out right here in our nation. Even ten years ago no one would have believed this possible, and it is a testament to the success of the tactics laid out and explained in the video. The thing is, ten years ago it would have sounded like a movie plot—today we can see it played out, in living color, on our TVs every night—the riots, the Agenda Media and the Leftist politicians like Kamala Harris.

        Did you see her smirking and laughing as she assured Colbert that the riots WILL NOT STOP? She only repeated that phrase, with obvious pleasure, over and over again. Get this woman on more and more talk shows, where she is not just reading speeches but showing us what she is really like.

    When I looked up the quote on equality I posted, above, I went on to look at more of Solzhenitsyn quotations and I share this:

    “If I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible what was the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: ‘Men had forgotten God; that is why all this has happened.’

    One thing we need is a campaign asking, in big bold letters, WHY DOES __________ SUPPORT THE OVERTHROW OF OUR GOVERNMENT?

    Amazon, Sam’s Club and Walmart, all of the corporations lined up to pander to BLM. Name them and call them out for supporting Marxism—-and then DEFINE Marxism.

    Then when Bezos or the CEO of whatever company objects, when the hysterics of the Agenda Media object, point out that this CEO of this company openly supports the admittedly Marxist BLM movement, and that Marxism is about the overthrow of nations, often through violence.

    We need to start working intelligently and energetically to separate Americans from BLM and we do that by pointing out that to support the organization means to support the violent overthrow of the United States.

    We should also start a massive SILENCE IS COMPLICITY campaign. Part of it would be to name these corporations and their CEOs and state that silence in the face of this admittedly Marxist group working to damage our cities and destabilize our society means complicity in their agenda. And part of it would be to do this, plus naming the many things never attacked by Joe Biden and/or Kamala Harris and make the same point.

    After all, it’s Joe’s theme. So use it.

    I can hardly wait for the next “children in cages” whine—or at least I would look forward to it if I thought we had a nice big graphic in the can ready to print or put on TV showing the speaker being silent when Obama built those cages.

    It’s like the Left is afraid we might not notice how batshit crazy they are, so they have to put out podcasts and articles and editorials and so on just to make sure we get it.

    Hint: We get it.

    Latest example: ‘Nice White Parents’ Responsible for Failing Public Schools, New York Times Says

    To illustrate how awful these nice white parents are, and how damaging to the system, the article cites thisL

    In Episode 1, for example, she describes how when “white parents” came into the school, many wanted their children to learn French, yet no French classes were offered. The parents formed a committee, held fundraisers, collaborated with administrators, and got their French program.

    This is problematic, according to “Nice White Parents,” because a French program strays from the cultural needs of the majority-minority population of the school.

    Yeah, really really “problematic” Not just seeing a problem and taking on the responsibility for solving it, but not agreeing that the entire student body should be brought down to the lowest denominator. What is not mentioned is that these French classes were available to “the majority-minority population”, which might have benefited by exposure to more cultural diversity.

    But maybe learning French would have been “acting white” or something. Only some kinds of diversity are good, I guess.

    Well this is great news to get after 6 months of lockdowns and masks:

    According to The New York Times, potentially 90 percent of those who have tested positive for COVID-19 have such insignificant amounts of the virus present in their bodies that such individuals do not need to isolate nor are they candidates for contact tracing. Leading public health experts are now concerned that over testing is responsible for misdiagnosing a huge number of people with harmless amounts of the virus in their systems.

    This is the beginning of the end of Covid folks. A completely over hyped, much politicized flu virus and we can thank our media and Democrat politicians for the hysteria.

    NOOOOO!!!!! The pandemic panic is supposed to last for two more months! Didn’t the NYT get the memo?

    Spoke with an old acquaintance yesterday who has been spending a lot of time with his 80-year-old mother in California who is so terrified that she has isolated herself and has been living in fear. We talked about the tragedy of people like her having their lives literally destroyed, turned from happy active lives with friends and family to being paralyzed by terror and living in isolation.

    I was visited by some Colorado neighbors a couple of weeks ago at my place in Wyoming, and the wife insisted that everyone wear masks and was still a wreck. It was everything her husband could do to even talk her into a short road trip, in their camper, where she would have next to no interaction with anyone. She is a retired pharmacist but still convinced that the virus itself causes organ failures. When I talked about the real cause of death being inflammation, and we know how to treat inflammation, she went on about the heart issues associated with hydroxychloroquine. And she should know better. But she has health conditions and is convinced that she might die from this virus. The quality of her life is basically shot. She even gets nervous when her husband goes out, fearful that he will bring this deadly virus home with him.

    Going back to the talk on the ways the Left destabilizes a society, this invented panic fits right into the template of controlling people with fear.

    Hey Spook, is there something weird in the water in Indiana? Or is Rep. Jim Banks smoking that waccy baccy?

    Jim Banks
    @RepJimBanks

    Hey @SpeakerPelosi, these are my constituents. They are good people.

    If you told these mobs to stop, I have a feeling they would …

    Now why didn’t the police THINK of that? Of just telling the mobs to “stop”? Silly old policemans.

    At least Trump only said there were SOME good people down in the riot area in Charlottsville. Banks is coming out and saying the rioters themselves “are good people”. Pandering for votes from the bottom feeders? Because of course violent Marxists dedicated to destroying the country will be sure to stop and vote for a Republican because he said they are “good people”.

    Though he then went on to say things that don’t seem to indicate a belief that these rioters are “good people”, after all. He calls them “thugs” and has put up a bill to stop unemployment benefits for rioters. He seems a little confused.

      Jim is a personal friend and fellow naval officer. I’ve known him for 10 years, well before he was elected to Congress and even before he ran for the Indiana Legislature. He’s a good guy, although, as you note, seems a little confused. His Chief of Staff is speaking to our Tea Party group Tuesday night. I’ll pose this contradiction to him.

    To the surprise of…..NO ONE….. the rioters are now going to the riots armed, and shooting non-rioters. Gee, who coulda seen that coming?

    “He was a f—ing Nazi! Our community held its own.”

    Antifa & BLM in Portland celebrate the homicide of a purported Trump supporter who was affiliated with Patriot Prayer, a Portland-area conservative group.

    An armed rioter strolled up behind a Trump supporter and shot him from behind, killing him. After which, of course, his fellow savages celebrated.

    Just a note to the people of Oregon, particularly those who live in and vote in Portland: Your utter stupidity and cluelessness in voting for Democrats is bankrupting your city and your state. When the inevitable lawsuits start to pile up, demanding millions upon millions of dollars in damages for the deaths and injuries and destroyed properties and businesses you will have no one to blame but yourselves. The feckless elected officials who started off supporting these savages and who are now impotently watching them escalate their violence are responsible, and need to be held accountable.

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler refused President Trump’s offer to send federal law enforcement to the city to control downtown protests that have continued for more than 90 days.

    “On behalf of the City of Portland: No thanks,” Wheeler wrote in an open letter to Trump Friday. “We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery. (Subtext: “We prefer our own politics of anarchy, violence and murder.”)

    This is a letter that is likely to be Exhibit #1 in lawsuit after lawsuit as the City of Portland is sued over and over again. I imagine one of the questions to Wheeler will be “Why did you decide that the destruction of your city and putting human lives at risk was excused because you thought the president did not do a good job responding to the COVID-19 threat? Can you explain how that makes any sense?”

    Shocking footage captured the moment hundreds of German protesters tried to storm into the historic Reichstag building. Police barricades were overwhelmed by the furious protesters, who were demonstrating against the German government’s COVID-19 protection measures. A violent confrontation with police at the German parliament broke out after a daylong rally, which drew nearly 40,000 protesters to the Berlin streets.
