Trump’s Florida crowd stats

Trump’s Florida rally revealed the following stats about the attendees according to the GOP.

Bluster or anecdotal data? If the data is reliable, one imagines that Trump should romp home.

Wouldn’t it be ironic to see the mass mail-in ballots sent to Democrats get returned straight Republican?

Life experience politicians vs Career politicians

It is so refreshing when politicians have life experience. South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem posted the following statement. As a small business owner herself, she knew how they functioned and has opened her state’s doors to welcome anyone fleeing lawless Democrat run cities, towns and states.

You’ve heard me say many times that South Dakota never closed. We allowed South Dakotans to make the best decisions for themselves, their families, their businesses, and their communities. But we were unique in this path; other states made different choices. In fact, in some places businesses have been closed for the past six months. How are small business owners supposed to make ends meet in states that have locked down their economies for six months straight?

This isn’t a hypothetical question to me. As a former small business owner, I’ve personally dealt with the struggles of keeping a business afloat. When my dad passed away, I had to take charge of our family’s farming operation. We struggled to balance paying our IRS bill with payroll and all the other expenses that are a regular part of running a small business. If we’d been forced to shut down for six months in the middle of it all, our business would not have made it.

That’s exactly what we’re seeing play out across the country. As a result of extended lockdowns, countless businesses are closing. In July, Yelp announced that more than 72,000 businesses on the site had closed for good since the start of the pandemic, and that was more than a month ago. Retailers and restaurants have been hit especially hard.

These businesses are more than just storefronts – they’re people’s livelihoods. They put food on the table, not only for small business owners, but also for their employees. Without businesses to employ these workers, states that have been shut down will struggle to recover even after they reopen.

Here in South Dakota, because we didn’t shut down our state, the recovery story is far stronger. According to the Minneapolis Federal Reserve, South Dakota had the fewest low-income job losses of any state in our region, and as of the end of June, we’d already recovered nearly all of those losses. Our weekly initial unemployment claims continue to drop. This is positive news coming into the Labor Day weekend.

Our tourism industry is rebounding strongly as well. South Dakota is the third best state in the country for domestic tourism bookings compared to the start of the pandemic. Interest in visiting South Dakota has surged, meaning we’ll continue to see friendly faces visiting our state in the weeks, months, and years to come.

We’re hearing from lots of folks interested in not only visiting South Dakota, but moving here full-time. If business owners are sick and tired of the lockdowns in other states, I want them to know that they have another option. They can come to South Dakota. We respect our people’s rights, and we won’t shut businesses down. We’re open for opportunity, and on my watch, we always will be.”

Maybe some lessons for the State of Victoria, Australia. Are you listening, Dan Andrews? Of course not.

Latest GOP ad – “Extinguish the fire”

Latest GOP ad on the violence and Democrat politicians supporting it.

RNC first night 6x viewers than DNC on C-SPAN but…

The Hill reported that

“Approximately 440,000 people tuned in to watch the first night of the virtual GOP convention on Monday, compared to just 76,000 views for the first night of the DNC on C-SPAN. “

The NY Post also reported,

“Last week’s 2020 Democratic National Convention tanked in the Nielsen ratings compared to the 2016 opening festivities where Hillary Clinton was crowned the nation’s first female presidential nominee…

…Viewership was down as much as 42% on the broadcast networks CBS, NBC and ABC…

…Most of the networks, including Fox, ABC and CNN, still averaged 18.68 million viewers, but that was a 28% plunge from the opening night of the 2016 DNC.”

But before we get carried away,

“In total, 15.8 million people tuned in for night 1 of the RNC across the cable news and broadcast networks, -29% from the opening night four years ago, when 22.5 million watched. For comparison, the first night of last week’s DNC drew 18.7 million viewers (which was itself down 27% from 2016)…

…Fox News also dominated the key news demographic of people aged 25-54, in which the network scored 1.6 million viewers. That’s around 1 million more than its closest rival CNN, which delivered 600,000 in the demo.

Fox Corp.’s cable news outlet led the night with 7.06 million total viewers, more than triple the number who tuned to the channel last Monday.”

Could it be that voters are already committed to their choice and disinterested in any more media spun noise?

Savage Ad – Kim Klacik for Congress

Kimberly Klacik is running for Congress in Maryland for the Republican Party. Here is her savage video excoriating the feckless 53 years of Democratic leadership which has failed its residents.

Hard to disagree with her message, especially when she talks to residents, one who lost three sons to gun violence in Baltimore.

More of her videos here.

Rasmussen – GOP vs Dems re Police

Rasmussen Reports has put out a poll on how the presidential candidates identify on the side of the police. No real surprise at the results.

66% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Trump identifies more with the police in violent protests situations. Just 11% think he identifies more with the protesters, while 15% say he tries to be impartial…

…By contrast, 60% believe most national Democratic leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi identify more with the protesters in violent protest situations. Only 8% feel they identify more with the police. 23% think they try to be impartial…

…55% of voters think most reporters identify with the protesters in violent protest situations. Just 5% say most reporters identify more with the police, but 30% believe most try to be impartial…While 77% of Republicans and 54% of unaffiliateds think most reporters identify with the protesters in violent protests situations, only 37% of Democrats agree.

51% of voters believe government policies and practices encourage violent crime in some cities and states more than others. Just 24% disagree, while another 24% are undecided…But 66% of all Americans oppose reducing the police budget in the community where they live…61% believe violent crime will go up in communities that defund the police.”

Senate Democrats refuse to condemn mob violence

True colours. This isn’t even a bill. Republican Senator Mike Lee lambasted Senate Democrats for not condemning mob violence in a proposal for a non-binding resolution. The reason was that they refused was because the Democrats wanted President Trump specifically noted despite the fact that the resolution spoke of “all elected officials.

As Senator Lee said, “People are being shot! Businesses are being looted. Innocent Americans are being attacked and threatened. Lives are being ruined. Communities are burning!…the woke ideology depends on federal money…the mob hates America on America’s dime…it’s time to cut off their allowance…the American people would be very interested to know who stands for them.”

For as horrible many on the left think President Trump is, if these are the standards of the opposition party, do Americans see them as a platform for any voter to aspire to?

Trump flips the bird at the self-loathing left

Just brilliant. Instead of cowering to the mob with political correctness, Trump announces he is building a national garden full of statues celebrating American heroes. Love really will “Trump” hate.

Liberal heads must be exploding. Basically the message to these self-loathing lefties pulling down monuments – I’m going to build a bigger memorial which unites America by displaying the country’s exceptionalism.

The softest part of any true patriotic American is a pride in its achievements, devotion to country and flag.

No doubt the left will criticize the people chosen to be erected on the basis of identity politics which in a sense shows that they really do like monuments after all.

Trump – master of the troll.
