We have long thought the 2020 presidential election would be ugly. That is hardly a wild stab in the dark.
Democracy is the last thing on the minds of the political class. We’ve had a 7-month introduction to what is at stake. Despotic governors have been swift to arrest, charge and humiliate normally law-abiding hair salon and gym owners for feeding their families while allowing peaceful protests to go completely unpunished.
These are the same politicians who supported the police when it suited to beat up taxpayers until it was expedient not to do so. As cities burn and crime soars, they threw the police under the bus and blamed them for inciting peaceful protestors. Many activist judiciaries gladly let off violent felons with no more than a slap on the wrist.
Our thoughts have always been if the average US citizen wakes up every morning and sees a burnt out shell where a supermarket once stood, graffiti scrawled over historic buildings and plinths with nothing atop them, they don’t need a biased media to tell twist what they see with their own eyes.
How ironic that the cities most affected are run by Democrats which have held power in many cases for over half a century. This is a first hand lived experience situation for most residents in a crisis. Utter failure, excuse making and politicians doing the exact opposite of what they wish for. More police, lower crime and law & order. Instead, city mayors virtue signaled as cities burnt. They took photo ops to paint Black Lives Matter on City streets even though the Marxist BLM movement lambasted them for pandering to white liberals.
Teachers’ unions have gone on strike demanding pretty much everything other than safe reopening to combat coronavirus.
The media is an ever willing accomplice. MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace has openly celebrated the prospect of a recession and spoke of a silver lining to coronavirus if it means Trump loses office.
What hypocrisy when the media cheered a White House reporter for questioning Trump about his lies this week. That coming from an industry that has never had lower ratings for trust.
Let’s not even start with social media giants and their bias – declaring themselves medical experts and deleting information they deem incorrect. No longer are they independent platforms for free expression but what they tell us is fit for consumption. Forget your rights. They think we’re too stupid to make such decisions.
Now voting rights are front and centre.
Never mind that a bipartisan commission agreed that mail-in ballots were the highest source of voter fraud. This year, in NY & NJ, between 20-25% of ballots were ruled invalid. Voter intimidation and fraud has been recorded. Several Democrats have been arrested and charged for engaging in the criminal activity.
Now the postal service (USPS) says it is not equipped to handle mail-in ballots safely.
Scroll back two years ago. We wrote of the number of Democrat controlled states which passed legislation to keep Trump’s name off the 2020 ballot if he failed to publicize his tax returns. Shouldn’t voters, not state legislators determine whether his taxes are an election issue?
As November 3rd looms, the mudslinging will make impeachment and the George Floyd riots feel like quiet nights in.
The public is at boiling point. The silent majority is growing fed up. They look at the available candidates and ponder is the best the Democrats have to offer? A presidential candidate losing control of his mental faculties teamed up with one of politics’ biggest hypocrites in Kamala Harris. An individual who gladly accused her running mate of believing his sexual assault accusers and racism. Who backflips on nearly every policy and has even suggested ICE operates like the KKK.
Never mind, the balanced NYT has labeled her a “pragmatic moderate“. We never knew that defunding the police, supporting men playing in women’s sporting codes and providing healthcare for all illegal immigrants were conservative positions. That will learn us.
As much as people may hate Trump for all of his bluster, many of his economic policies have been successful as we pointed out at the time of his SOTU. He has exposed just how useless politicians on both sides of the aisle who have served for decades have been.
His job isn’t over. When it comes to mud wrestling there is no finer professional. If it sticks he doesn’t care. He only knows forward. Await the fireworks. Democrats want revenge but they might be best to remember when embarking on it, to dig two graves.
