The deciding factor in the 2020 presidential
campaign will be surprisingly simple

Original Article

The 2020 election is shaping up arguably as the most fascinating presidential selection event in modern history. Republicans are going with an incumbent whose post-inaugural job approval until last weekend has never exceeded 46%. Democrats overwhelmingly say their top issue is ousting Donald Trump. But two dozen of their wannabe nominees have raced far from the electable center of the political spectrum to argue instead over a smorgasbord of trillion-dollar freebies. [Snip] While a majority of Americans tell pollsters they definitely will not vote for Trump, a majority say they believe he will be reelected. How does that work? For that matter,

My main concern is continuing voter fraud that no one seems to want to do anything about.

As the general election nears, the Democrat who wins the nomination will pivot to the center, and all the leftist anti-American rhetoric that they have been saying for two years will be buried as if it never happened. Don't let them get away with it.

Creepy Joe is a stalking horse. His job is to foil a first round nomination so the Mooch can slide in. That and unprecedented vote fraud ( Miami, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, they don't need the other places) is their not-so- secret strategy. As for Veep, Buttplug seems to be the only choice left.

He leaves out the fact that voters don't always tell pollsters their true voting intentions. If a majority expect Trump to win, that's because they actually are planning to vote for him.

Something should be done to unscramble Andrew Malcolm's brain. He needs help. Remember the 2004 election, and exit polls, showing Jon Cary winning by a landslide? Early afternoon on election day, the Fox analysts were beside themselves!Why were the exit polls wrong? Voters lied, and the consortium running the exit polls wanted George W. Bush to lose. There is no way DJT will ignore the primary battles of the Democrats. They are making his ads for him. Open borders, free health care for illegals, punitive taxation, free college for everyone, canceling student loan debt and on and on. I suppose it could be a secret candidate nomination, but if the secret candidate is a centrist, the democrat delegates will riot.

Now, we may know exactly why President Trump is vowing so often that the United States will never embrace socialism: That polls really well among Republicans, like more than eight-out-of-ten well, including nearly two-thirds of whom have a very negative view of that system. The president will need every single one of those GOP votes to go with him on Election Day in just 70 weeks to overcome his chronic deficit in job approval. And the same new poll by

Last time Donald Trump ran for president, he was an upstart, outsider, unlikely to win, who put some $66 million of his own into that successful unorthodox campaign. This time is different, very different. He’s an incumbent commander-in-chief with no real challengers and the Republican National Committee is fully on his side. So, it seems, are a lot of small donors. It shows. While media ooh and aah over the $24.8 million collected in the second quarter by Pete Buttigieg, the Trump campaign and the RNC took in $105 million — $54 million from the

This is one of those shadowy war mysteries with a backstory that belongs in a Richard Ludlum novel. We’ll never know the true inside story. But it’s interesting nonetheless. You may recall back in 2011 as Barack Obama was heading out of the White House one day to take his mother-in-law along on a South American tour, he dropped the news that oh, by the way, he’d ordered U.S. air forces to help European allies oust Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi.He launched this multi-month offensive without congressional approval. Gadhafi’s crime (actually, it hadn’t happened yet) was he threatened to

Swoosh! Nike, the big shoemaker, seems to have a new boss. For America’s Independence Day, Nike released a new sneaker shoe style with the image of the early U.S. flag stitched by the notorious revolutionary Betsy Ross. It had the familiar red and white stripes and 13 stars in a circle for the original colonies. Apparently, sales were going well until noted kneeler Colin Kaepernick objected because, well, some of the 13 colonies had slaves at the time and we shouldn’t be knowing that in this Woke era.

Approaching its 243rd birthday, the United States has a proud and widely-admired political tradition of freedom and generally democratic elections of its own leadership. Thanks to voters’ brief episodic attention spans and earnest but shallow media coverage that treats a leadership choice like some marathon Kentucky Derby, the United States has a presidential selection process that’s a mess.[Snip] We saw much of this made painfully clear during and after the first pair of Democratic primary debates. TV relishes such set-piece events, like old-fashioned shootouts down by the corral. We know when it will be. Where it will be. Who

Today’s a big day for the rowdy army of Democratic presidential candidates. They get their internal financial reports showing how much money they took in during the second quarter. If the haul was good, we’ll soon hear about it from bragging campaign sources, perhaps even today. If not, we won’t for a while. Campaigns must report their April-June donations to the Federal Election Commission by July 15.

Of course, it’s a summer holiday week. So, this good news somehow slipped by most media critics of this president. But the latest government figures just showed that in April the United States produced a new record amount of oil per day — a stunning 12.16 million barrels of oil every 24 hours. [Snip] Of more significance, the oil production jump makes the United States the world’s largest producer of oil, ahead of the usual slippery suspects like Saudi Arabia and Russia. How’s that for energy independence? And how can presidential debaters turn that into a negative?

For generations, American parents have taught their children the entrepreneurial spirit by helping them open front-yard lemonade stands. Sometimes even stocked with homemade cookies.

Former President Bill Clinton, who is longtime friends with pedophile Jeffery Epstein, has released a statement about the billionaire's arrest over the weekend and charges related to child sex abuse and trafficking. "President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffery Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York. In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation,"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday blasted President Trump’s push for a citizenship question on the 2020 census as an effort to “Make America White Again” — claiming, “it’s not what our founders had in mind.”“They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted,” Pelosi said at a press conference in San Francisco that focused on election security.“Just their people vote and not the general population,” said the Democratic lawmaker. “That’s why they’re fighting the census.”White House officials did not immediately return requests for comment from The Post on the statements.

Marcus, who retired from Home Depot in 2002, has been a vocal Trump supporter in the past — despite not always agreeing with him. “He’s got a businessman’s common sense approach to most things,” Marcus told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a recent interview, which has been making the rounds on social media.

2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) told activists at an event Monday that she supported pressuring Israel to, in their words, "end occupation" of Palestinian territories. In a video posted by the left-wing Jewish group IfNotNow on Twitter, two of its activists approached Warren for a picture—she poses for photos with anyone who wants them after campaign events—and introduced themselves as American Jews with a proposition for her. "We really love the way you're fighting corruption. We'd really love it if you also pushed the Israeli government to end occupation," one of the activists said. "Yes, yes. So I'm there," Warren said quickly. Warren then took a picture with the two activists.

California’s uncanny “earthquake pause” is over. It should have already had several “big ones” by now. All that pressure has to go somewhere. Now geologists are nervously eyeing eight nearby volcanoes. And why has Yellowstone supervolcano been acting so weird?

Some, they say, may even be more powerful than those experienced in the past few days. “(These quakes do) not make (the Big One) less likely,” local seismologist Lucy Jones told The Los Angeles Times. “There is about a one in 20 chance that this location will be having an even bigger

Taylor Lorenz, a staff writer at The Atlantic took up the call, calling air conditioning itself "unhealthy, bad, miserable, and sexist." She called for a ban on air conditioning in general, and the internet rushed to defend the technology. "Air-conditioning is unhealthy, bad, miserable, and sexist.
