Knowing what's at stake,
Trump-supporters increasingly
refuse to hide in the shadows

A curious thing is happening in America, and you'd have to work pretty hard to ignore it. Trump-supporters are emerging from the shadows in large numbers, even in places you might not expect. One might not be incredibly surprised to hear about masses of Trump-supporters rallying and taking part in patriotic parades in red states like Texas and even swing states like Florida, but eyebrows tend to rise when they begin happening in the capital city of the most important political stronghold of the Democratic Party. Back in May, I and my family attended the Liberty Fest rally held in Sacramento.

I thought this article was going to be about the Amish/Mennonite horse and buggy Trump parade from last weekend. It was much more unusual than a parade in a state capital. Even in Kalifornia. Who knew that the Amish and Mennonites were political?

When Trump support is sprouting across once-bright-blue California, one can only imagine how strong it is in the sane parts of America. It's going to take much more than mail-in ballots for the democrats to cheat their way to power this time around.

Electoral landslide and crush the Rats in the house. Why vote for Trump then vote down ballot for rats. The senate needs to be 60. If on election night we see this happening the country will not accept the fraudulent mail in.

Happening in NJ too. Even in liberal Bergen County there are traditionally Republican towns and you are seeing home banners and yard signs for Trump and local Republican candidates. On Rt 46E leading to the GWB, on the long hill before Fort Lee, one homeowner has a fully electric Trump sign. South past Raritan it is Trump Country. The Trumptillas and beach gatherings this year were YUGE. A lot of it is fed by disgust at Mussolini Murphy the governor who locked down the state, governs illegally by Executive order, and while he was in the hospital at the beginning of the pandemic, allowed Cuomo to make decisions through the Lt Gov.

Perhaps because for the first time in decades, they have a leader who never makes the mistake of bringing a knife to a gunfight.

A post I see often states that one needs to only an American flag to demonstrate how he will vote. It is one more sign that many people are recalling the basic belief of the founders of the United States. That belief is the simple recognition that God is alive and well and asks us to make choices that demonstrate His love for us, rather than our ability to burn down buldings.

Mitt Romney’s announcement that he will vote on President Trump’s nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court “based on their qualifications” is getting plenty of media attention.

The first presidential debate is next Tuesday, and I don't see Biden surviving. His campaign has been playing "hide the Crypt-Keeper" since spring, occasionally proving to the public that he's still ticking by having him tussle with a teleprompter while "objective journalists" participate in make-believe interviews. Biden's cognitive decline is now so steep that he begins reading pre-written answers to pre-written questions, forgets what he's doing halfway through, and settles for stringing syllables together that sound English-y in a non–native speaker sort of way.

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel. This good news for the world was bad news for the media.

Imagine hating yourself enough to watch a presidential debate featuring Donald Trump. What reason would you possibly have? To make sure he’s a lying sociopath? To see if he’s a worse choice than Joe Biden? To gain useful insights into American politics? In truth, there is no point, especially in a format that will involve remote participation because of the pandemic. Nothing will be revealed that we don’t already know and know so thoroughly that we can barely stand to hear it again. We could cancel the upcoming debates and lose nothing.

California's Gavin Newsom Ban's
Gas-Powered Vehicles, Effective 2035

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that the state will ban sales of gas-powered vehicles, effective in 2035. Newsom said that the “audacious” goal was necessary to achieve the state’s goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045. Newsom said that his new executive order would “eliminate” the sales of “internal combustion engines” and move to electric vehicles — a move that he said would create jobs and allow California to “dominate” the market, and address climate change. Those who currently own gas-powered vehicles would still be allowed to operate them and to sell them on the used market.

Cindy McCain endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president Tuesday in a rebuke of President Donald Trump by the widow of the GOP's 2008 nominee. Trump has had a fraught relationship with members of John McCain's family since he disparaged the Arizona senator during his 2016 campaign. But the McCains have until now stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals. Cindy McCain cited the decades long friendship between her family and Biden's and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. “He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served.”

CNN host Don Lemon proposed radically changing the U.S. political system to take power away from the "minority" vote in the country. During the hand-off before his show Monday night, Lemon debated fellow network host Chris Cuomo by arguing Democrats should push to eliminate the Electoral College, which would require a constitutional amendment. Lemon said such a feat was possible if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats "stack the courts." "Until you have a group of people that decide to consistently be better than what they reject, you’re going to have people in the exact position

As the Senate prepares for yet another brutal Supreme Court nomination fight, one particularly sensitive issue is creating apprehension among Democrats: what to do with 87-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee. Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate, is widely respected by senators in both parties, but she has noticeably slowed in recent years. Interviews with more than a dozen Democratic senators and aides show widespread concern over whether the California Democrat is capable of leading the aggressive effort Democrats need against whoever President Donald Trump picks to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Seattle now has on its payroll a convicted pimp who once vowed to “go to war” with the city—a $150,000 “street czar” whose mission is to come up with “alternatives to policing,” reports said.
