The Left attacks the peacenik

You have to hand it to the modern left. Before he was elected, Hillary Clinton said we needed to worry about his access to the nuclear codes. The media ran wild with the narrative. Unhinged psychiatrists wrote a book on the danger. We wrote about their lack of professionalism and breach of the Hippocratic oath.

Yet 4 years later Trump has brokered significant peace deals and is in danger of being the first president in four decades not to start a war. Even Obama attacked Libya.

Now the left is criticizing Trump’s nomination for a Nobel peace prize by a conservative Norwegian politician. He is far more deserving than Obama who basically was awarded one for basically nothing of note.

Why can’t we just accept that Trump has done some remarkable things on the foreign policy front. Israel/UAE (Bahrain to follow), crossing the DMZ in North Korea instead of looking from behind a bulletproof glass partition. Serbia is about to move its embassy to Jerusalem following Trump who finally did what multiple presidents put off.

A sensible nominee and most certainly a deserved winner and one which would restore the award’s status after giving it to Obama for basically being elected.

One doesn’t have to like Trump for his vulgarity and caustic tongue but he has gotten results.

Brutal Babylon Bee on Kamala Harris

From the Babylon Bee:

U.S.—Supporters of Kamala Harris have been eagerly awaiting an announcement on who her VP pick will be when she takes over as president approximately 5 minutes after Joe Biden is inaugurated. According to sources close to the campaign, she is already vetting possible candidates for the job. 

“I am proud to announce I will soon be announcing my pick for Vice President of the United States,” said Harris. “We have searched all across this great land. While I cannot yet confirm who my pick will be, I can say this: my pick for VP will be even MORE of a woman and even MORE of color than I am. It will be the most colorful and womanly team ever!” She then threw her head back and cackled maniacally.

Joe Biden was also thrilled to hear the news that he would be getting not just one, but two female vice presidents.

The VP search has stalled since it has proven difficult to find a woman of color who survived both Kamala Harris’ pro-abortion policies as well as her aggressive imprisonment of minorities. In a statement, the campaign also promised to announce a pick while all The Babylon Bee writers are sleeping so they won’t have a chance to write a funny headline about it.

Tech-savvy TikTok Teens troll Trump’s Tulsa Rally

Tulsa

Fair play. Trump’s team were hoodwinked by tech-savvy teens on Tik Tok who signed up to an open platform, for seats they never intended on taking. The campaign manager should have been aware of the threat of fake sign-ups. The 19,200 capacity BOK Stadium only managed to get 6,200 according to the local fire department. Hardly a failure in a COVID-19 world and certainly more successful than anything Biden can muster. But empty seats makes for poor optics. The mainstream media is in raptures as it can rerun the story to boost flagging ratings.

Even Korean K-Pop fans relished the opportunity to interfere in an election that is not their own. A bit rich given their country has lived under the blanket of US security for decades and the man they chose to humiliate has been the only US president to set foot in North Korea to try to get a dialogue going. Just shows how few know their history.

Amazing how politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the media celebrated the Korean trolls when they were apoplectic with rage over Russian bots in the lead up to the 2016 election.

AOC

The next rally Trump holds won’t fall for the same trap. While the media celebrates the idea that supposedly bursting Trump’s ego as a victory, his followers are only likely to return serve the next time. Who would blame Trump supporters for thinking 800,000 sign-ups in a city with a population half that size might make the journey to get a seat almost impossible given it was first come first served? Still. Facts are facts. The stadium was c. 1/3rd full.

Perhaps with a newfound confidence in thinking Trump’s armour has been breached, the Democrats should have no issues deploying Joe Biden to the debates to humiliate the president some more.

How the Democrats respond to this rally will be more telling than those that didn’t attend it. At the very least, former Obama administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice fired her first salvo by saying Trump and his supporters in the Senate hopefully end up in “the trashcan of history.

Note Rice did NOT say “his supporters”, but “supporters in the Senate” which the media on the right is incorrectly pushing.

DC Mayor gets schooled by the mob

DFP

Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser set a wonderful example last week in trying to end racism. She renamed the area out the front of the White House, ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza‘ and scrawled it in huge yellow letters on the bitumen as a two-fingered salute to President Trump.

Unfortunately, despite her attempts to show solidarity,  Black Lives Matter DC cracked her over the head for “appeasing white liberals”.  So the mob decided to express their own artistic expression by copying her virtue signalling with ‘Defund the Police’ while dancing to cheerful singing.

How ironic that these protestors were protected by the very police they wish to have abolished? We wonder how the officers must have felt providing a safe environment to the very people who wish to strip them of their livelihoods right from under their noses?

One imagines if a group painted ‘All Lives Matter’ on the pavement, they would be met with hostility and violence.

We wonder how the demands of the left will play out ahead of the election?

Does anyone in the Democratic Party think that Americans will be prepared to give up their rights under the 2nd Amendment when they are advocating for defunding and disbanding the police forces around the country? Perhaps they might look at the surge in gun sales as a good guide as to the public perception of these moves. Note that gun sales hit an all-time record during coronavirus with 3.7mn checks in March, 3x the level of March 2019. One imagines the “defund the police” movement will send it higher again.

Will Americans gladly accept the premise made by Democrat politicians like Lisa Bender in Minneapolis who tells them that having a police force is a privilege and removing it is necessary to “dismantle white supremacy“? She might be able to argue in time that her policy drove home prices down to more significantly more ‘affordable’ levels. And the very program Bender lauds the success of hasn’t stemmed violence. Despite the number of shootings among people targeted by her intervention program staying level between 2018 and 2019, police stats showed the overall number of people wounded or killed by gunfire in the city increased from 244 to 269. Homicide was up 55% in the period.

Should Americans believe Minnesota House Rep. Ilhan Omar support to defund the police when she said, “we must completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Departent…and allow for something beautiful to rise” Murder? Rape? Robbery? Car theft? You know, the crime rates which are already twice the national average and 4x Minnesota. Pfft. Feelings matter more than facts.

Will pictures of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden kneeling send messages to the electorate of someone committed to keeping law and order?

Will we see a rebirth of vigilante groups like the Guardian Angels who dealt with crime in NYC during the 1980s?

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany spoke yesterday about the heroic deeds of the police around the country just last year. It is worth watching their selfless service from the 26 min 40-sec mark.

Why can’t the Democrats see that these open displays of weakness are handing Trump the election on a platter? Can’t they see just how terrible they look as an alternative? If he is bad as the media claims, they’d be safer doing nothing.

As Napoleon once said, “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

Rasmussen Reports puts black support for Trump at 41%

Rasmussen Reports latest poll reveals that 41% of blacks and 43% of other minorities support Trump, record highs. This is up from 34% in December 2019. And a 5-fold jump on 2016.

All we can say is the left should be very concerned. Perhaps more blacks are waking up to the fact that the Democratic Party is the source of their oppression, especially as these riots play out. As Candace Owens says of her #Blexit movement, “more are leaving the Democrat plantation.

And it is worth pointing out those blacks who thought those that didn’t vote for Biden weren’t black came in at a paltry 27%.

No wonder the Democrats are pushing for mail-in ballots!

Raw and Refreshing

Some people just call as they see it. Refreshing to hear Main Streeters who haven’t been shaped by media advisors. The media is missing a trick.

This is the reason why we believe that American patriotism is more powerful than a hateful media.

Snowflake warning: some profanity.

How the Bottom 50% in the USA have fared over the last 30 years

fredgraph (3)

Thanks to the SOTU, this chart from the St Louis Fed (FRED) gives us a great read across on how the Bottom 50%’s fortunes have fared over time.

Since the series began, FRED shows their aggregate wealth peaked in 2Q 1991 at $4.3 trillion. In Q1 2009, that net wealth plummetted 61% to $1.7 trillion. It sunk to a rock bottom of $300 billion in 2Q 2011, 93% down.

Under Obama, net worth for the Bottom 50% declined from $1.7 trillion in 1Q 2009 to $1.1 trillion, down 35% over his two terms. This might do some explaining as to why the “forgotten” wanted large scale change.

Under Trump, the latest net worth is back to $1.6 trillion. Still well off the highs of 3-decades ago, but one imagines if things keep improving out to November, then these people won’t want to risk their fortunes reversing again.

Of course, many will ponder the unfair wealth gap of the Top 1% at $34.5 trillion in the latest figures.

Democrats should be outraged that the ultra-wealthy have done much better under Obama with a 100% gain in net worth under his term vs the paltry 15.3% so far under Trump. Is this the real reason why Nancy Pelosi is so upset?

Trump trounces the party of raw onion, lemon and chilli mouthwash in SOTU

Trump smashed the State Of The Union speech. Utterly exposed the Trump Derangement Syndrome within the Democrat’s ranks.

Trump has a glass jaw. This is well known. He made his feelings well known to Speaker Nancy Pelosi in his 2020 SOTU address. He snubbed her handshake and set the tone. It was juvenile and unpresidential to refuse Pelosi’s gesture but Trump wanted the optics. She was shocked. Then again their mutual hate is no surprise to anyone, especially given the impeachment farce.

Before he spoke, Trump was greeted by chants of “4 more years!

The sound of Pelosi’s applause was quieter than a one-handed clap.

Pelosi or the Democrats couldn’t raise one round of applause for record unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, veterans or disabled people. So much for identity politics, they bleat incessantly about.

Trump awarded stage 4 lung cancer sufferer Rush Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Not even Pelosi could extend any warmth for his achievements, let alone his ailment.

You have to hand it to Trump for rallying American greatness. As a media man, he knew exactly how to win the crowd with his special guests.

He spoke of an 8th grader who wants to join the newly created Space Force. His great-grandfather is the 100yo Tuskegee Airman, Brigadier General Charles McGee. Americans love their war heroes. It was a powerful moment.

Even awarding a child of a single mother of colour, Stephanie and Janiyah Davis, with an education freedom scholarship couldn’t bring Democrats to applaud them.

He also spoke of his repudiation of illegal aliens and sanctuary cities. He spoke of Rocky Jones who was shot 8 times and killed at a gas station. He was murdered by an illegal immigrant who was released by a sanctuary city. Trump said he wants to pass legislation to allow victims to sue sanctuary cities for suffering such losses. He also stamped his disgust of giving free healthcare to illegal aliens.

He spoke of drug price transparency and introducing record numbers of generic drugs to lower the cost of medicines. Healthcare is far from perfect but steps are being made.

One of the most powerful moments was the surprise visit of Sgt Williams who was reunited with his family after a long deployment. Chants of “USA” as they embraced was one to pull at the heartstrings of a nation that is proud of its military. Probably the most exceptional moment of the SOTU speech.

Whatever bluster or fact-checking that will inevitably surface in the hateful mainstream media, much of his achievements will ultimately be weighed by the electorate come November.

During all of this, the fact was most Democrats swished a mix of raw onion, lemon and chilli mouthwash. Too bitter to accept the realities of a president that has kept a lot of promises. Staring down at their smartphones as he rattled off KPIs on the economy and the number of companies who are setting up in America. The mainstream media will talk of the handshake snub but the SOTU will be what is remembered by Americans for making them feel proud again.

On the back of the Iowa Caucus farce and his inevitable acquittal from impeachment this week, his coronation looks ever more certain after tonight.

Nancy Pelosi couldn’t wait for it to be over. She ripped his speech up in front of the audience, a terrible look especially given her bitterness. It is hilarious to think on so many issues the Democrats couldn’t celebrate successes of their own citizens.

Trump 1 Democrats 0.

NB – he didn’t mention Iowa or impeachment once.

63m gun repossessions?

Kamala Harris’ brilliance knows no bounds. She intends to repossess guns from “racists”. If we use the strict definition from the Democrats, all 63mn Trump voters will lose their guns.
