Hey Democrats: What’s the Strategy?

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 9/15/2020 8:29:33 AM

One of the things I like to analyze in political events is evidence of strategy. For instance, when Nancy Pelosi says the California wildfires mean that “Mother Earth is angry,” I think that is just reactive -- and primitive, because Mother Earth goddesses go way back. But when President Trump (or Jared Kushner) comes up with almost one peace deal a week -- first Israel-UAE, then Serbia-Kosovo, and now Israel-Bahrain -- and lo and behold, as if on cue, Swedish politicians start nominating him for Nobel Peace Prizes -- my strategy detector goes crazy.

Of the various prizes offered by the estate of Alfred B. Nobel, the one for Peace seems to be the most politically charged one. Medicine, Literature and any of the other original prizes are not treated to such vitriol. More modern areas, i.e., economics, were added later by the Nobel Foundation. Donald J. Trump is above all, a gracious man and I expect he will accept if the prize for peace if actually awarded to him, not just a nomination.

What's the strategy? Seems to me it's: Remove Trump and vote us back into office, or see the country turned into ash.

Small nit. When a competent business owner sees things aren't working they change strategies or fix what's broken....not 'cook the books'. I'm guessing that's implied, but somehow felt a need to point that out.

Tactics is doing things right. Strategy is doing the right thing. World of a difference. PDT is demonstrating that difference in all spheres. if the voters reject him in November (they won't) then we are the biggest fools in the world. Our enemies would have to do nothing!

Who else, besides President Trump, has done anything for peace during the past four years? Not Hollywood. Not the democrats. Not the Chinese. Not the Russians. Not the MSM. No one!

Falling for the Biggest Hoax in History 24 replies
Posted by Magnante 9/16/2020 8:13:09 AM Post Reply
It will probably take months if not years for the truth of the Covid-19 pandemic to emerge, but when it does will any politician take responsibility for the lies and disinformation or the damage this hoax caused this great nation? I don’t think so, but what it did prove was what happens when the Democrats are in charge. They may not be in the White House but it is the House that wields the power over legislation and our money. Couple this power with the useful idiots in the mainstream media to promote the widespread hysteria, and we then had the total capitulation of a frightened nation

I’m not a superstitious person, but I have to admit to something close to trepidation as I write this post with good news about Trump’s reelection prospects.

By now, it’s the worst kept secret in the world that Joe Biden is having cognitive difficulties.

Sundowning is so named because it consistently appears as the sun is setting.

At the beginning of September, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget announced that, at President Trump’s direction, all federal agencies would be banned from imposing Critical Race Theory (“CRT”) on their employees. (snip) The CDC is going ahead with its plan – paid for with your money – to impose a thirteen-week long CRT training program on its employees.

Was this a slip of the lip or a forthright acknowledgement of reality? My guess is that her ego got the better of Senator Harris, who, after all, is used to assuming power through questionable exploitation of older men. It must be a classic “Kinsley gaffe,” a politician accidentally telling the truth, since nobody would ever describe Kamala Harris as “forthright.” Whatever the underlying psychology, during a “virtual address” (i.e., a video call like Zoom) to a group of Hispanic small business owners in Arizona on Saturday, the junior senator from California spoke of “a Harris administration together with Joe Biden”

"Hey guys. Just letting you know that I'm not gonna run the league this year. My heart's not in it plus at least two guys are done with the NFL in general. Maybe next year all of the BS will blow over but until then y'all take care." This is how my NFL fantasy football league (established ca. 2005) came to its inglorious end last month. "Sounds good to me!" was one response to the league commissioner's text message. "Same here... I don't even care anymore" was another.

When the tactics of Black Lives Matter coincide with the ideology of NPR, Americans should realize that the left has crossed yet another line on the indecency scale. A reporter for an NPR station showed up at the Los Angeles hospital where two sheriff's deputies who had just been shot while sitting in their car were taken. A BLM crowd had miraculously appeared within minutes to block the emergency entrance, some of them shouting "I hope they f------ die." Some were vowing to "rape a cop's girlfriend like a dog instead of a pig." The NPR station's reporter allegedly interfered with the police attempts to control the "protesters."

Google is the world’s most popular search engine, accounting for 75% of all desktop internet searches and over 90% of all mobile phone searches. That’s why it matters tremendously that it’s using its power over what Americans know to limit searches that might lead to information about Biden’s suspected dementia. It also appears that Google isn’t listing articles that are critical of Obama in a way that could hurt Biden or help Trump. To understand what Google is doing, you need to know that Google, like all search engines, has an autocomplete function

Watching Democrat-aligned radicals raze our cities over the past three months has felt like a thousand mini-Pearl Harbors -- only the enemy is within and the damage is in our backyards. While beleaguered Democrats dig their own graves as they prop up the riots, the ordeal has been exhausting, dispiriting, and frustrating for the rest of us.

Normally, I would spurn the idea of citing an anonymous post that purports to contain inside information on a presidential candidate. But two factors currently weigh on my mind, causing me to make an exception. One is that MSM Trump-haters have no compunction at all over relying exclusively on anonymous sources (snip) But the other factor is more serious and directly relevant to the anonymous post I am about to cite. The Biden campaign clearly is hiding their candidate from exposure to circumstances that might test his mental acuity and vigor on a sustained basis.

A Fox News panel scolded and cut away from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after he linked liberal billionaire George Soros to the violent riots that have caused damage across the country over the last few months. “The No. 1 problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said to a panel on Fox News’s Outnumbered on Wednesday. “Both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended how she has handled her relationship with President Trump — after it was pointed out that the two leaders haven’t spoken in almost a year amid mounting crises. Speaking to MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on Monday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) faced pushback after repeatedly saying “Forget him” while answering a question about countering the commander-in-chief’s rhetoric and narrative. Melvin noted to the nation’s highest elected Democrat that, “with all due respect, you just said, ‘Forget him.'” “Yeah, forget him,” she responded. The MSNBC host then asked if she and the president had “just stopped talking? Is that where we are?” “You haven’t talked to him about the wildfires,

Approximately 150 pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco will receive a $1,000 monthly supplement during their pregnancies and for the first six months of their babies' lives, the city's mayor announced. Mayor London Breed's (D) office said on Monday that the Abundant Birth Project is the first of its kind in the country. The project's goal is to eventually provide a supplement for as long as two years post-pregnancy. “Providing guaranteed income support to mothers during pregnancy is an innovative and equitable approach that will ease some of the financial stress that all too often keeps women from being able to put their health first,” Breed said.

Towards the end of a discussion on the property damage that’s been caused by violent protests over police brutality, Gingrich—who is now a Fox News contributor—insisted that the real issue was with local elected leaders.

On Tuesday, during an episode of The Five, Juan Williams claimed that the recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain that Trump negotiated a “distraction” and that rather than achieving peace they are “accelerating” the “chance of war” in the Middle East. Williams made his argument while he and his co-panelists were discussing Nancy Pelosi’s recent remarks that the peace deals were a “distraction.”
