Trump for the Win

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 8/28/2020 11:09:40 AM

The Republicans have now forced the Democrats to change course and tactics, shed their narcissistic complacency, and recognize that they are in the fight of their lives. When the history of this astonishing political year is written, there will be amazement that the Democrats ever imagined that they could preserve the entire election as a referendum on Trump based on the question of whether the population is content, and leave the president floundering in blustery self-justification while their nominee fielded soft pre-agreed questions from his home. The Democratic National Convention was essentially centered in a Wilmington catacomb and featured an unexciting procession of former officeholders,

This is the best review of the RNC Convention that I’ve seen anywhere. Black really pays attention and he gets it. And he didn’t miss this, which he pegged accurately. No one from the Bush administrations or the failed McCain and Romney campaigns was in evidence and were not missed. In the ragged procession of Democratic convention speakers, none was more pitiful than the second runner-up to the Republican nomination for years ago, former Ohio Governor John Kasich. In American politics, traitors to their party have a brief afterlife as useful idiots and then vanish.

(hit submit too soon) Not mentioned: The seemingly unusual choice of “Nessun dorma” from Turandot for the wonderful tenor Christopher Macchio, who performed it so beautifully. We wondered why that choice until someone mentioned how that beautiful solo ends - translated into English - At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!

If you could win on sartorial perfection Trump would be a shoo-in. Did you see the perfect stitching on those shoulders? His tailor must have come down from heaven. Ditto the shirt and tie. Even the Jews are coming over, finally! They know a good suit.

The Four nights of the Republican Convention were Beautifully Produced. The Speakers were perfect, the Background was perfect and the Music was awesome. Everything blended so beautifully. There wasn't a single awkward moment. I've said it before, I will say it again. Whoever actually put this whole Show together should win an award. I've never seen anything like it! I sure hope we never go back to the old way conventions were held. This was so much better and held my attention, start to finish!

To say nothing of the selection of the Ave Maria in the song list. The Democrats purged God from their platform and thoughts where The Donald celebrates Him.

#7 - I always tear up for the Ave Maria and this was exceptional on many levels. Every detail of this event had meaning and purpose beyond its beauty. In this instance it was recognition that the Blessed Virgin Mary is the patroness of the United States under her title as the Immaculate Conception. (Mary conceived without Original Sin so her womb could be the tabernacle for Our Lord.) This beloved prayer is a recitation of Luke's Gospel; the greeting of the Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin, "Hail Mary, full of Grace. The Lord is with thee," and then St. Elisabeth's greeting upon Mary's arrival at her home, "Blessed art thou and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb..." The prayer ends with naming our Savior, "...Jesus." Then requesting prayers from His mother, "Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen." This beautifully sung prayer was formally enlisting the powerful intercession of the Mother of God to protect and defend her children in a nation entrusted onto her care. Tears streamed down my face last night as I gazed at my little statue of Mary here in my office last night. As Sister Deirdre proclaimed, we fight with our greatest weapon...the Rosary. Ave Maria!

In most cases, prediction in politics is a mug’s game. Maybe that is why it is such a popular game. I forbear to speculate. (Snip)Many commentators (including myself) have dilated on the striking difference in tone between the two conventions: according to the Democrats, America is steeped in ‘systemic racism’ and the ideology of ‘white supremacism’. (Snip)The Republicans, by contrast, presented America as a land of hope. Its guiding themes were promise, opportunity, heroes and national greatness. The Dems invite us to wallow in rancorous resentment, feeling good by feeling bad, while the Republicans celebrated the ‘better angels of our nature’ (Lincoln again), embracing life, prosperity, second-chances, and forgiveness.

In October of 2016, James Taranto wrote in the Wall Street Journal that I was “one of the 2 or 3 most intense Never Trumpers we’ve encountered all year.” He was right. (Snip) My criticism of Trump was relentless and brutal. I exposed his connections to Mafia figures, I latched on to any vague allegation of racism I could find, I didn’t just want him to lose, I wanted him to lose in a landslide. Thursday night, as I watched my president accept the nomination of the Republican Party for the second time, I fully realized how wrong I had been.This is not new for me, I’m wrong a lot.

According to a new Trafalgar Group poll, Republican challenger John James has taken the lead over incumbent Sen. Gary Peters (D) in the key battleground state of Michigan. The survey, which was conducted during the Democratic National Convention, and before the Republican National Convention, showed James with 48.1 percent support, compared to 46.6 percent for Peters. Other candidates have the support of 2.1 percent of respondents, while 3.2 percent were undecided.(Snip)Another poll in the state released Friday showed President Trump with a narrow lead over Joe Biden, 46.6 percent to 45.2 percent. “Voters are looking for leadership, not a self-serving career politician,” James spokeswoman Abby Walls

Egged on by Joe Biden and Wisconsin governor Tony Evers, a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters has been burning down Kenosha, Wis. They are angry over the latest police shooting of yet another black criminal who assumed he is racially entitled to resist arrest. The new Zeroth Amendment to the Constitution reads “No Black man must submit to being arrested if He’s really not in the mood to be arrested.” (The old Zeroth Amendment—“Everybody on Earth has the right to immigrate to America and Americans aren’t allowed to object”—was demoted to the Negative First Amendment about the time in June it was decided that blacks are now Blacks.)

Formentera, Spain - Nowadays it is impossible to go out on the streets and not break the law in some way, often unconsciously. The increase in prohibition and regulation with the viral excuse brings many European democracies dangerously close to the dictatorships of the last century. Many laws transform us into criminals, and the sanitary mask is a perfect atrezzo for the vulgar modern bandit. Perhaps that is why this summer more boats are seen than ever before sailing along the Spanish coast, especially in the Balearic Islands. With such legal chaos on land, the sea offers the promise of freedom, like in the times of the lame corsair Byron.

Yesterday Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of shooting three rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two and injuring one, was arrested. He was charged with first-degree intentional homicide. President Trump has since sent in the feds and the national guard after the useless governor of Wisconsin previously turned down offers of support. Hooligans are rioting because a black man with a criminal record of violence was shot by cops when he resisted arrest, marched to his car and appeared to reach into grab something. A knife was found in the car. Was Jacob Blake was trying to grab a gun? I wouldn’t want to wait and find out.

It is sometimes underappreciated how new professional sports is as a dominant cultural phenomenon. For the vast majority of human history, sports has been overwhelmingly played by amateurs. And even in America, it is only in the past fifty years that this professionalized version of sport became a route to wealth. Baseball, which has the longest professional sports history in the United States, illustrates this: the average MLB salary is up an inflation-adjusted 3,000 percent since the late 1960s. Professional sports only became big money in the era of television, as a form of mass entertainment
