A liberal-leaning group and individuals are using social media to encourage Trump opponents to reserve tickets for the president's upcoming reelection rally in Portsmouth, N.H., in an attempt to make the venue appear empty. "Get your tickets and don't go," one Twitter user wrote Monday.(Snip)"If you have two minutes of your day to troll the president....Reserve two tickets and laugh knowing that’s two seats not filled," another person tweeted about the New Hampshire rally.(Snip)A liberal Facebook group called Blue Revolution, which has more than 60,000 members, posted the RSVP link for Trump's rally scheduled for Saturday and encouraged its members to reserve spots.

Comments:

Rush Limbaugh, rightfully, attributes the protest and riots as being led by college-age kids who know nothing about American history due to the disaster of public education these past 50 years.

Charge $20 per ticket, validate the tickets when the rally is over, and give a $20 refund to anyone who mails in a validated ticket. As for those who don't show up, the money will go to Trump's Presidential campaign.

I wonder if these morons understand that two can play this game. If Dementia Joe ever emerges from his basement hold a rally, Conservatives can pull the same stunt and leave his rally empty, not that many people would be going anyway. And I love the idea of charging $20 for admission and letting people know that unused tickets would be considered a donation to President Trump's reelection campaign. That, in itself would kill the efforts of the college kids, since most of them are notoriously cheap!!

I have attended three (3) Trump Rallies and each time I "reserved" and downloaded a ticket for the venue. When I got there it was first come/first served until the venue was filled to capacity and the ticket wasn't looked at, scanned or collected. You went through the security screening and found a seat, or stood in the area of the stage if you wanted to be close. The overflow who got to the venue too late to get in could watch on the jumbotron screens outdoors. Something doesn't smell quite right about these stories of liberals not showing up on purpose

Each ticket should be billed on a credit card for $100, IF you show you get a refund...it's free, if you don't you pay...The tightwad Libs (with their own money) would NEVER pony up!

Why not charge $25 for each ticket and make it refundable at the door? I don’t mean having the money there but to enable the ticket-holder who shows up and sits down for the whole event to get his money back electronically.

Make the person pay $3 or $5 for a ticket and this ends. No Trump supporter will be bothered in the slightest, and if they persist, more money to fund the Trump campaign.

I like the $20 charge for tickets and offer the option for a refund if you show up to the rally, but offer the alternative of the $20 being a contribution (assuming it does not mess up stupid Federal Election Commission rules). My guess would be that you would have to declare the $20 ticket charge as a contribution to start with - which will cut off the libs because they would be reported as a Trump donor - I the agony of that!!!

But Sleepy Uncle Joe has already figured that out. He's not gonna have any rallies because he's worried that (1) stated -- somebody might catch a cold or COVID-19 at them and (2) unstated - he couldn't fill up a small bar with drunks if he promised free beer all night. I like the idea of a modest charge that would be recorded as a Trump campaign donation.

I also agree that there should be a small charge for tickets. It is like anything else. When you give something away for free, people abuse it. Charge $5 per ticket. Conservatives are happy to pay it to keep the riff-raff from destroying the event.

News flash: Registering online for a Trump event is just their effort to collect email information. When I went in Baton Rouge they never asked to see anything. It is just a matter of showing up early enough to get in and going through security. So ignore the numbers and go out - it is a fun time.

Folks, the lib are simple. Leave them be. They think there will be empty seats. HA! There are 10 Trumpers wanting each seat. The real problem is the liberals who attend and cause havoc inside the arena. Blocking passageways, restrooms, prime seating areas and intimidate attendees. Who sits behind PDT? It would be disruptive for liberals to be back there.

I heard that in OK, the mayor was talking about curfews, and there were scare tactics about violence and the virus. A lot of people travel great distances for rallies, and i suspect that calculating the risks came into play on deciding whether or not to make the trip. The 6,000 or so who attended is a heck of a lot of people! And millions tuned in. No Dem (excepting probably BO) has garnered as much participation.

At Tulsa, the officers of the management company that supervises operations for the arena attempted to sabotage the Trump rally then went on social media bragging about it. Or so the story went that was posted on here last week. If seating was reserved, people wouldn't be showing up a day or two ahead of time to queue up for admittance. As the recipient of umpteen e-mails a day from every interest hawker in the country as the result of a contribution to the Swift Boaters back in 2004, they want your email address.

Relax. After Tulsa, one of President Trump’s campaign people explained how the tickets work. There are no reserved seats. They put out more tickets than there is room in the venue. It is first come - first serve at the rally. Tickets make nice souvenirs - no one checked them, according to #4 (see above). This is more propaganda intended for the stupid media to broadcast. And for us to panic over if we are dumb enough to believe it.

A new report from a conservative group on the potential problems with large-scale mail-in voting argues that a recent push from states to send ballots to all registered voters for November's election would not only expose them to possible fraud but could likely result in a significant waste of taxpayer dollars. The report, by the Honest Elections Project, cites problems that have already arisen in a number of states showing that including inactive voters--including those who have changed addresses or died--would result in money being spent on ballots that would never reach their intended recipients.

Prominent African-American vloggers Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, better known as Diamond and Silk, are upset about white liberals who talk systemic racism, yet "put the systems in place." The sisters, who serve on President Trump's campaign advisory board, said white liberals controlling predominately black, inner-city areas for the past 60 years are the same liberals who convinced enough black Americans to vote against their own interests. "These people practice Marxism," said Hardaway (aka "Diamond") during a joint video interview with her sister to discuss nationwide protests sparked by the killing of African-American George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.

In a Fourth of July speech at the White House in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and racial unrest, Trump made a full-throated defense of America's past and said he won't allow an "angry mob" to tear down statues, "indoctrinate our children" or "trample" freedoms.(Snip)Trump cast blame on the media for "slander" sowing racial divisions and said the press dishonors the memory of soldiers "by insisting they fought for racism."

In the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, we saw protests and violent riots break out across America. Marchers carried signs that read “silence is violence” and “Black Lives Matter.” “Black Lives Matter,” as we all know, is more than just a slogan. It’s a radical left-wing organization with an anti-capitalism, anti-police, anti-America, and anti-Israel agenda. (Snip) There is, of course, a big difference in saying you believe black lives matter versus saying you agree with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) was established in 2013 by a trio of self-identified Marxist revolutionaries. Striving to make white Americans “uncomfortable about institutional racism” and the “structural oppression” that allegedly “prevents so many [black people] from realizing their dreams,” BLM contends that blacks living under America's “white supremacist system” are routinely targeted for “extrajudicial killings … by police and vigilantes.” That claim has become an article of faith for the millions of American leftists who dutifully parrot BLM's talking points. The remainder of this article is dedicated to providing hard data which exposes BLM's worldview as nothing more than a mountain of malicious lies.
