Looks like Joe will show for the debate tomorrow: though, of course, don’t think he won’t back out if his meds aren’t kicking in on time.

I’ve seen some prep work done in Bluecheck social media to allow Biden to go after Trump’s kids: this to deflect from Hunter Biden, with the most recent revelation that he got $3.5 million from the wife of the mayor of Moscow. As someone pointed out: maybe the Russian dossier was about Hunter and they just put Trump’s name into it?

Not only does Mitch have the votes to confirm ACB, it looks like they might move this one right along and allow Trump to swear her in before the election – which could be crucial if it is close. Personally, I don’t think it will be. I think that however it goes, it’ll be big one way or the other. Either people will reaffirm their rejection of the Establishment in big numbers, or they’ll reject Trump by big numbers. I’m hopeful for Trump, of course: and I still see voter registration and early voting numbers which indicate Trump might have this. But, we’ll see!

But, with Pelosi wondering if Democrats can control 26 House delegations, my view is that the Democrats know they are sinking fast and are desperately hoping for something so screwed up that they can fraud their way to the White House. And why 26 House delegations? Because if the House picks the President, then each State gets 1 vote. Right now, it is GOP 26, Dems 22 and 2 split. And this, mind you, is with a Democrat House majority – and even if the House remains Democrat, there is little chance that four delegations will flip.

Trump’s taxes – which, by the way, he paid millions; don’t buy the MSM lie that he only paid $750.00 – are just one in a huge series of “bombshells” which the DNC/MSM will drop on us now until Election Day. This particular one was likely timed so that the debate moderators tomorrow can dwell on it and thus not have time to discuss Hunter’s dealings.

Cindy McCain, fresh from spitting on us by endorsing Biden, has been named to Biden’s transition team. If Joe wins, maybe there’s a cabinet slot for her…the bottom line is this is who we used to have. And I’m glad their gone.

More evidence of water on Mars – which is cool and no matter how you slice it, it makes exploration of Mars a lot easier in the long run. But I still doubt humans can live there long-term: there are too many hazards for us to overcome. Until we can figure out gravity and a sure-fire way to block solar radiation, brief visits will be all we can do.

With Romney’s announcement that he’ll vote for the nominee, it looks like Cocaine Mitch has the votes lined up to replace RBG…and I suspect he had it all along. I can’t imagine a scenario where Trump and McConnell hadn’t gamed this out twenty ways to Sunday. Everyone knew RBG was dying and so there were probably contingency plans covering every possible way that could come out.

I have seen some rather heated Twitter fights over just whom Trump should pick – who would be better in a political sense, who would be more reliable when it came time to rule. I decided not to have a dog in those fights because, in the end, it doesn’t matter: Trump is the guy who gets to pick and we’re all just going to have to swing in behind it when it comes. I think most of us are simply happy that a mindless vote for whatever is fashionable on the Left will be replaced with someone who might actually rule on what the Constitution says.

Democrats are threatening to pack the Court if we get this. Meh: I expect them, if they win it all, to not only pack the Court but add DC and Puerto Rico as States and then simply do whatever they want as they set up an unconstitutional electoral system which ensures we can’t win. The stakes really are high in this election: and only a crushing defeat of the Democrats will allow a chance for sane Democrats to recapture their party. Lose to them this year, and the insane Democrats will be fully in command.

Team DNC/Biden did have an awesome August for fundraising…and this generated stories of Trump/RNC being broke and desperate. Well, the Trump/RNC combo is doing fine and breaking fundraising records. Once again, never believe the MSM. They lie all the time about everything.

The Silent Majority is starting to find it’s voice. Let’s face it: stating in public that you support Trump is a risk. You could be physically attacked. Your property could be vandalized. Heck, you could even lose your job. But, now, more and more people are putting out the Trump sign and joining spontaneous rallies in favor of the President. The vote November 3rd might be very different from what we expect.

I don’t know if Kim Klacik can actually win in her overwhelmingly Democrat district – but she should.

The policies she advocates are not only Conservative, they are almost Distributist, as well. Only an insane person – you know, a Democrat – could object to them.

Trump is doing wonders for peace in the Middle East. The Palestinians fired off a few rockets at Israel, but that is just the pointless action of people being left behind. Only the Palestinian leadership and the Mullahs have an interest in continued war in the Middle East, and Trump has sidelined both of them. Trump should get a Nobel Prize for all this but he won’t because the entire global Ruling Class is garbage.

Who will win November 3rd? I think Trump will; but I don’t know. No one knows. Its all about whether the Love Trump+Fear Dems outnumber the Hate Trump people. For those of you who would like some good insights into what is happening on the ground, I suggest checking in from time to time with Larry Schweikart, M Joseph Sheppard and Cotto/Gottfried. They’re not mindless boosters but they also aren’t doom-and-gloom naysayers. They are, as far as I can tell, giving out info they think is correct. They are all on Twitter so, sorry Amazona!

Senator Cotton wants to undo China’s Most Favored Nation status. This is something we never should have given to China. But whatever merits it ever had, it is clear that China treats us as an enemy, so we might as well be realistic about such things and cut them off from our markets.

Are the ChiComs funding BLM? They’d be the most amazingly stupid people who ever lived if they aren’t. For China, BLM does two things: harms American unity while also allowing China to say, “see, America has civil rights problems, too.” All we know is that at the drop of a hat, BLM has rioters wherever wanted and bail money is provided very fast. Someone is funding BLM…and it isn’t American patriots.

Air Force says they are already test flying a 6th generation fighter. If so, good. Air superiority plus Naval supremacy are the twin pillars of American power. They allow us to intervene whenever we want to at minimal risk to American safety.

Suzie Sorority has become a BLM radical...and, as you suspect, it is because she’s been made insane by Progressive propaganda at college. But now, in Lancaster, PA, at least these upper class Bolsheviks are facing million dollar bail.

The Democrats are ALL Losers Open Thread

Do I believe Trump called our dead soldiers “losers”? Of course not. First off, the sort of people who would say that are out there rioting and looting. Trump can be rude and crude – but it must be noted, only to people who attack him, first. He never throws the first punch.

But get ready: they will trot out things like this every week or so now until November 3rd. In fact, this feels more like an “October” story than a September one. I suspect with Biden starting to slump they are bringing out some of the big guns early to try to chance the dynamic of the race. They clearly coordinated this story with Team Biden.

And here’s why they are getting desperate: awesome employment numbers for August.

Poor lady died in February; gets notice she’s got the ‘Rona just now. The numbers are bogus, guys; they are just making them up.

Nancy Pelosi may have handed to House to the GOP with blowout.

Know what you haven’t seen a lot of lately? Polls. We were having a poll a day, it seemed, when they were coming in Biden up 7 to 12…but all of a sudden, hardly any polls. In the days after the party conventions, when we normally get a raft of them. Interesting, huh? To be sure, the polls we were getting were mostly garbage…but that means that they’re still garbage and likely show Trump as least within the margin of error.

What happened? The conventions – people got a good, long look at the Democrats and Biden and then got the same thing with the Republicans and Trump. And I think that it was rather stark. One party hectoring us about our national sins…the other lauding our national greatness. Add into this the completely insane violence of the riots which I’m convinced are – or, at least, were  – ordered by the DNC (they may have taken on a life of their own, now: millions were donated to shadowy BLM groups which can now fund riots on their own) and what might be happening out there is a complete collapse for the Democrats.

Don’t pay too much attention to claims that Trump is within striking distance in California and New York – it ain’t gonna happen. But that Biden put early on his campaign itinerary a visit to Minnesota (which hasn’t gone GOP since 1972) indicates the true state of the race.

Trump trolls Biden:

Rushing him out of basement after seeing some very disturbing numbers. Don’t worry, he’ll go back to basement soon!

This in response to a Biden campaign stop in western Pennsylvania. Another State Biden shouldn’t be in if he’s leading by 10. That’s another indicator…Trump is having a good time.

Open Thread

I’m sorry I haven’t posted! Been busy. But, here I am again!

Anyways…

The Democrat response to the first night of the GOP Convention was to burn down Kenosha, Wisconsin. I’m not sure this will work to the Democrats’ advantage. This came up too quickly; shooting video gets out and almost instantly very violent riots occur which seem to deliberately stay away from anything which could provoke an independent federal response. To me, Antifa had the plan ready to go – and activists on standby – and were just waiting for some event to happen which could be cast in “racist white cops shoot a black man” terms. Someone is controlling these riots and funding them. We should find out who.

Meanwhile, the ratingsfor the GOP’s first night buried the DNC’s first night. If Joe is up 12, why are so many more people tuning in to the GOP than the Democrats?

Reports of a Coronavirus reinfection; where you get it, again. Who knows? It looks, though, like the ‘Rona will be with us forever…as perhaps a more deadly flu and even if we get a vaccine it likely won’t be 100% effective and will have to be modified over time like the flu vaccine is. It is time to end the lockdowns entirely and go about our normal lives.

Pelosi thinks you’re an enemy of the State. Which is, in a sense, true: we are rather opposed to the government, aren’t we? But we aren’t enemies of the people…as she is.

The MSM is all excited about Republicans for Biden. What they don’t realize is that these “Republicans” are precisely the reason we turned to Trump. What it really shows is that it is Trump vs Establishment in 2020. The Dems, the MSM and Never Trump have all set it up so that the incumbent President gets to run as an outsider.

Harris was picked because of her skin color and gender. That’s it. That is all she brings to the table. It is all she’s ever brought to the table. She has no accomplishments; no intellect…nothing except the right amount of melanin, the right internal plumbing and a (D) after her name in California.

In a normal world, President Trump would get a Peace Prize for the dealhe brokered between UAE and Israel…which does seem to be the precursor to the general recognition of Israel by the Arab powers. Only Iran and their proxies will be left out in the cold. Keep in mind: this was done and no one had a clue. In the crucial matters, the Trump Administration does not leak. Keep that in mind the next time an MSMer says “sources” are saying something. They either don’t have a source, or they are being played.

Let’s hope it works out…and now I think I see why Jared Kushner has been targeted of late. He’s been central to Trump’s dealings with the Middle East and someone got wind that something as in the works…someone who doesn’t like Trump and Israel, and so tried to play up an anti-Semitic angle against Trump’s son-in-law.

Sean Ono Lennon is…a bit red-pilled. I’ve been seeing his comments of late on Twitter…he’s, of course, got a deep respect for his father but he also doesn’t seem to have any illusions. He also seems to have a first-rate mind. Credit Yoko with raising a kid who knows how to think.

The thing about ‘Rona testing “errors” is that the error always seems to be an over-count. They are just making stuff up, guys.

A man murders, execution style, a 5 year old child. Rather newsworthy event, don’t you think? But you haven’t heard it, have you? Because the child was white and the man was black. Had it been the other way around, you would have heard about it – endlessly. I bring this up not to shove more horror into your daily life but to once again, and very graphically, illustrate what I’ve been saying: the MSM lies. They lie all the time. They lie about everything. No matter how one looks at this story, it is a major story…it is something for headlines and to lead the national TV reports and for a series of think pieces…but, nothing. Because it doesn’t fit the Narrative. Nothing outside the Narrative will be reported in the MSM…what you are getting in the MSM is a completely false idea of what is actually happening in America. The riots and the ‘Rona and all of that: just an op. The MSM saying what the DNC has ordered them to say because the DNC believes that such will help defeat Trump on November 3rd. And, who knows?, maybe it will: but it still won’t make what the MSM says true. For all we know, Trump is actually poised for a landslide victory: we won’t know until the votes are counted. The MSM will not report a reality which is working well for Trump…if they have to simply make up things out of whole cloth to make things look bad for Trump, that is what they will do.

I’ll have Secrets out September 1st. And I’ve actually written all the way to the end of Battles. The third book does still need a lot of work: but I wanted to see how it ended and I think I’ve written a splendid ending! I’m going to try to have Battles out December 1st but that might slip to right after the New Year.

You may have heard of the story of the accused rapist who was let out because of Corona fears and then proceeded to murder his victim. I don’t know precisely why, but this story has placed a fury of anger in my heart. I’m sure this is not the only such story out there: and it is infuriating because the criminal was released not for any valid reason, but simply because the Democrat Party created an op which went: “if the virus is the worst thing ever, it will hurt Trump, so we’ll have the MSM report the virus as the worst thing ever”. What followed after that – criminals being sprung because we can’t leave them in prison with the worst virus ever – was a predictable as thunder after lightning. But the bottom line is that a woman is dead – murdered by the man who brutally raped her – because of the Democrat Op…and all those who are hand-wringers and cowards over this virus also have blood on their hands. For the millionth time: actions have consequences. This is the real world. What you do will cause other things to happen.

Trump signed his Executive Orders and, sure, we Conservatives are not pleased that he was forced to this action. In our perfect, entirely Constitutional world, this should not have happened. But, we left off that Constitutional world quite a while ago. It wasn’t even Obama with his pen and phone that got the ball rolling here. Honestly, it was Teddy Roosevelt with his “if the law doesn’t prohibit it, the President can do it” assertion which started the tearing down of the Constitutional order.

On the other hand, this puts Democrats in the pickle of either going along with it, or suing in court to allow people to be evicted and get lower unemployment benefits. And that, to me, is key. Since we really don’t live under the Constitution any longer, might as well do what we can to ensure our continued power. Because if the Democrats do win in November and take back the Senate, you can rely on it they’ll just pack the Supreme Court as needed and simply annul anything which prevents them from winning. Our primary action right now is defensive: keeping them away. But, also, we will have a small chance of restoring the Republic…but to do that, we’ll need power. I figure it’s 50/50 we’ll eventually install a Lenin or Franco (depending on which side wins) to take over because we, as a people, seem to be growing weary and afraid of governing ourselves. If I gotta have a dictator, then of course I want my dictator. But I’d rather have a Republic…and keeping the Democrats out for another eight or so years just might give us the ability to do so.

Bubonic plague spreads in China. This is pretty bad; but not so bad for us as bubonic plague requires lots of filth to spread…fortunately, garbage isn’t piling up in New York City as the government there collapses due to the Communist mayor’s deliberate and malicious actions. Oh, wait.

It gets really bad if it turns into pneumonic plague; then its human-to-human transmission and tens of millions will die.

Speaking of New York, the Upper West Side has become a garbage dump as the Commie mayor moved homeless people into vacated hotels. It is getting very 1970’s these days in New York City. I’d like to feel sympathy for the people of New York, but I can’t. They voted for the Commie mayor. Twice. They thought it would be so cool and hip to vote for a hard-core Commie! What they apparently didn’t realize is that Commies are serious people…and no matter how much you donate to their campaigns or how much money you slide over to them in various grifts, in the end, Lenin despoils you of all your property and sends you to Gulag.

Oddly, this was reported in the Daily Mail and not a major American MSM outfit: Trump supporters rally in….wait for it….Beverly Hills. I’ve seen some video clips. No, they are not massive rallies…but, they are rallies. And it does take some guts to proclaim your support for Trump in places like Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Now, don’t get cocky here. I have seen people theorizing about California going red. This will not happen. But I do believe this is an indication that even in the deep blue areas, people are getting fed up with ‘Rona lockdowns (which are arbitrary and senseless and seem to only really hit at things normals like to do…whether its going to church or going out for a drink) and endless riots. Also, as many have noticed: there seems to be far more non-white people at these rallies than we see in Black Lives Matter protests.

Open Thread

So, Joe Biden said that black people, unlike Latinos, all sorta think alike.

If we lose to this halfwit, we deserve it.

New York’s DA has decided to make a massive, in-kind donation to Trump 2020 by going after the NRA. Nothing better for Biden than Commie New Yorkers reminding everyone why they fear a Democrat presidency. This DA, of course, ran on the platform of going after Trump…the fact that she’s going after the NRA demonstrates, once again, that whatever else Trump is, he is a law-abiding man. They really got nothing on him.

Young black voters: not big fans of the Democrat party. Don’t get too puffed up about it: its not like they love the GOP, either. But this is the GOP’s chance to start eating into Democrat’s vote share among African-Americans. If we blow it, we’re stupid and deserve to lose.

Democrats are using Coronavirus fears to try to harm Trump. No gatherings! Mask up! Be afraid! And in keeping with this, they are refusing to set up a “knock and drag” ground game. Trump is keeping his. We’ll who was smart.

The stupid is getting worse:

In Michigan, Greg and Kjersten Offbecker have removed the Norwegian flag flying outside of their bed and breakfast, the Nordic Pineapple. The couple purchased the historic mansion two years ago and converted it to a bed and breakfast. They’ve flown the Norwegian flag along with the American flag out front.

Unfortunately, (and because our public education system is mostly hot, stinky garbage), the Offbecker’s have removed the Norwegian flag as far too many people have confused it with the Confederate Battle Flag…

Unsolicited Chinese seeds are showing up in people’s mail boxes. I would burn any such that arrived.

It sorta looks like Kamala will be Joe’s VP pick – though some are still fighting against it. I don’t think anyone on Team Biden really wants here – or anyone who rises above complete non-entity. Everyone expects Biden to kick the bucket long before 2024…and probably most of Joe’s closest aides figure it is baked in, as well. But they’ll want to hold on to power as long as possible, and that means picking a VP that no one wants…so that until Biden’s carcass is carried out of the Oval Office, no moves will be made to replace him.

Don Surber takes note of a video clip I saw: a nurse hand-holding Joe out to the car. And then pulling him away from reporters before he could talk about Corn Pop, again. The man isn’t well.

Trump is doomed! But while he’s doomed, the GOP is far outpacing the Democrats in registering new voters in Pennsylvania. Kinda funny, huh? Do keep in mind that it was voter registration shifts in PA which first clued me in that Trump could win in 2016. It is certainly better to follow such things than polls…but I also noted on Twitter that Nate Silver is already hedging his bets for November 3rd.
