I have said all along that I have no doubt that Trump will win easily. I think the Demonrats massively, insanely overplaying their AOC lunatic hand will ensure a landslide win for President Trump in November.

Or some of the otherwise RAT voters just stay home, which also works to Trump's benefit (and ours).

#3 El Correcto ! Those democrats that hate President Trump just for his hairdo will never vote for him but most who see the democrat party as a mob of Marxist and have some sense not to be part of it will stay home. I can't image a lefty democrat sitting watching AOC and Joe Biden and get excited about them but there are those people anybody but Trump.

My question, and one that may get attention, is whether the deep state -many of whom have significant financial ties to China- participate in the development and introduction of the virus? After all, President Trump was, indeed, making America great again and draining the swamp. The deep state could see no way forward to legitimately challenge and defeat President Trump. We have seen the stories how American dollars went to the research lab in Wuhan, and the relationship to the CDC, Universities, and other research centers. We saw how the democrats resisted implementation of measures to mitigate the virus. They didn't want President Trump to implement the travel ban. They initially told us we didn't need to wear masks. We didn't need to fear the virus. We saw the governor of New York intentionally mix infected senior citizens into nursing homes. The list goes on...

Mail in ballots, vote harvesting, motor voter, electoral votes going to the popular vote winner, 50 years of wide open borders and the largest cities in the US controlled by democrats. And the media. That's what democrats have going for them. That's a pretty big mountain to overcome.

Not the Trump haters that used to be my friends. They are too ashamed and embarrassed to admit they might have been wrong and therefore avoid me on the street. Great, it saves me the effort of crossing the street so they don't see the evil smile on my face.

My wife has gone from moderately liberal but sane, to a raging red-pilled right winger arguing with her friends on Facebook. She voted for Trump, but lurked there before. Now she is in the battle. She fought my buying guns, but told me to buy more ammo when this crap all started. She still complains about Trump's tweets, and I have to redirect her back to the Democrats' verbal lunacies. A small price to pay. And Tucker and Tim Pool brought her a lot of the way.

I had a new central AC unit installed today. Talked with the two techs about shooting, hunting, guns, concealed carry guns for us and wives, brought up by my African trophies. In any case, the topic wandered around to ammo shortages and then why the ammo shortages. We agreed that if these violent leftist nutcases really want to bring their violence here, they won't like the result. Pix of AR15s and more were shown. I love blue collar guys, pretty much all of the ones I meet and know are good people and the antifa soy boys and girls will be very unhappy if they push this too much farther.

This article focuses on Trump but the reality is that any perceived weaknesses of Trump are existent or worse with Biden and the dems. Some are upset with Trump's interactions with women but we don't have pictures of Trump sniffing young women's hair as they cringe away. There are lots of Biden. Trump has been investigated by the best for over 4 years and they found NOTHING. Biden has openly bragged about Ukraine corruption when he was VP. Biden and his Socialists have failed to produce a vibrant economy ANYWHERE at ANYTIME in history. In fact they destroy every economy they get their hands on. Trump turbo charged our economy in a couple years to achieve unprecedented levels of accomplishment for ALL Americans. People are upset with Trump's "bragging" and tweets but Joltin Joe regales us with his Corn Pop adventures and other dubious escapades. His opponents say Trump lies but fair fact checks show that the essence of what Trump says is truthful. The media went insane when Trump claimed he was wiretapped. It turned out he WAS spied on using the modern equivalent even if they didn't actually "tap" wires to do it. Joe can't even remember where he is or what he supposed to say. His stories are well known to be fabrications and recently he can't even tell them well. Joe exists in some other world where reality is absent. Trump may have some faults but the ones the media calls out are mostly lies. Biden's faults are real and well documented, often by the media itself before he was their candidate. Trump is nowhere near as bad as claimed and Biden is far, far worse. To cap it off, the dem party has become an abomination.

In life, we encounter things which may work in theory, but not in practice. Communism is famously one of those things. Time travel is another. With any luck, Americans will soon come to realize that strict social distancing, economic lockdowns, and mask-wearing all belong in that category of supposedly sound ideas that simply don’t work in reality. For evidence, let’s look to Sweden. As Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, an ER doctor at a hospital in Stockholm, writes on his blog, “COVID is over in Sweden. People have gone back to their normal lives and barely anyone is getting infected anymore.”

Nobody has benefitted more from the riots destroying retail stores in major cities than Amazon, which has seen the bricks and mortar competition shrinking even faster than before. And the company, founded by Jeff Bezos, has not been shy about donating $10 million to “organizations supporting justice and equity,” and subsequently increasing the total to $17 million by matching employee donations. If Bezos thought that such virtue signaling would buy immunity for his Amazon empire from the mobs, he was mistaken. Less than 2 hours ago, Andy Ngo posted video of a Seattle mob attacking an Amazon-owned Whole Foods retail outlet

Hillary Clinton’s loss of the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump was so traumatic for members of the Democrat elite that a form of PTSD appears to have taken hold, relegating all memory of the candidacy itself to amnesia.

Joe Biden has been in Washington, D.C., since 1972. It’s therefore easy to go through his past stances on issues and use those issues against him now. Doing so creates one kind of Biden v.

Animals that are ambush hunters tend to be very still until they have their prey where they want them. Then, the ambush hunter is an explosion of efficient motion and the prey . . . well, the prey is toast. With Saturday’s executive orders and press conference, Trump proved himself to be a masterful ambush hunter, and the Democrats found themselves being hapless prey.

At a press conference at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump showed his mastery of Rule 4 (“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules”), Rule 5 (“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”), and Rule 6 (“A good tactic is one your people enjoy”).

On Tuesday night, President Trump announced that U.S. Attorney John Durham had uncovered “breathtaking” evidence about the “corrupt” Russia hoax. That might just have been Trump puffing, except for the fact that the Trump campaign also released a new video hinting that the Democrats, from Obama on down, are going to be in trouble. (snip) Keep in mind that Donald Trump ran a hugely successful reality show. He understands the importance of a narrative arc for any successful broadcast. If Durham’s report had broken six months ago, it would have been old news by the summer. Worse, the media would have explained away almost everything and deep-sixed what it couldn’t explain.

Former Vice President Joe Biden seems to have announced Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. There was an inquisitive photographer's shot of his notes suggesting just that. But there's also some question about whether she's really qualified. The media has already seeded the ground with quotes from some of the dumbest lawyers in America to state she is a “natural born citizen” under Article II of the U.S. Constitution, and is therefore, eligible to be vice president or president.

As regular readers of my column know, I’m no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s putting it mildly. I don’t like his chronic dishonesty. I don’t like narcissism. I don’t like his nastiness and his silly name-calling. I detest his need to constantly cause chaos, as he did with a recent tweet suggesting we should postpone the 2020 presidential election. There’s nothing about this man’s character that I like. And I hope he wins re-election in a landslide. Actually what I mean is that I hope the Republican candidate beats the Democratic candidate. And I wish the Republican candidate were almost anybody else.

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening. Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy's father's house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head. Hinnant's seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL. Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random.

A recent landmark poll of 20,000 citizens undertaken by the Knight Foundation and Gallup found that Americans’ hope for and trust in an objective media is all but lost. They see not only an ever-growing partisanship in news reporting but a determination by the mainstream media to push a political agenda instead of honestly disseminating the news. While generic faith in the media has been gradually declining over recent decades, the precipitous drop in trust and questions about what motivates the mainstream media can be traced to June 2015 and Donald Trump’s entry into the presidential sweepstakes.

Since Kamala Harris was announced as Joe Biden’s pick for Vice President, the negative immediate media coverage of Harris has, as expected, been swift and vicious. She’s already been attacked by right-wing commenters, and called ‘nasty’ by the President. But another big, underlying trend has been far simpler: Harris’ first name has been regularly mispronounced, often intentionally by the likes of seasoned political commentators like Tucker Carlson. But Harris, who pronounces her first name “COMMA-luh” and not “kuh-MA-luh,” shouldn’t have to deal with this. She’s been in the political spotlight for years, including her own presidential run just a few

Left-wing prosecutors have implemented soft-on-crime approaches to criminal justice across America, in some instances making it a matter of policy in major cities not to prosecute specific crimes, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found. A common, though not universal, feature of prominent left-wing district attorneys is the backing of political organizations funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros. The New York Times has credited Soros with pioneering the “push to overhaul prosecutors’ offices” across the country. Cook County, Illinois, State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx, whose jurisdiction includes Chicago, took office in 2017 after winning her election with the help of a Soros-funded super PAC.
