The choice is really quite simple.

Our presidential election is only a few weeks away. 

We have the choice between the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, and the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Yes, we have to vote for one of these two men, but we also need to consider what these two men represent.

Let’s review what you apparently support by voting for either the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, or the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Democrats/liberals believe it is a woman’s right to abort a baby right up to the moment before birth.

Republicans/conservatives believe all babies have a right to be born and live. 

Democrats/liberals support defunding police departments.  All criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe if anything, police department support needs to be increased.

Democrats/liberals support taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Again, all criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe law abiding citizens have the right to protect themselves and bear arms, as guaranteed in The Constitution.

Democrats/liberals believe anyone from anywhere should be able to freely walk right into our country whenever they feel like it.  The drug cartels and human traffickers love this.

Republicans/conservatives believe our borders should be secure, limiting who can and who can’t come in at any given time, while affording us an orderly and managed legal immigration process.

Democrats/liberals believe in tearing down monuments to our history as a country.

Republicans/conservatives believe in honoring and learning from our history, not trying to erase it.

Democrats/liberals support “sanctuary” cities and states, where illegal immigrants can live without fear of being taken into Federal custody and charged with crimes or be deported.

Republicans/conservatives believe illegal immigrants are “illegal” and are here illegally, and should be treated as such. Republicans/conservatives also believe that the concerns of legal citizens should come before those of illegal immigrants.  

Democrats/liberals support raising taxes across the board.  They claim working class people won’t be affected, but we all know higher tax rates for companies and corporations are just passed down to us.

Republicans/conservatives support the continued reduction of taxes across the board.

Democrats/liberals immediately take money from the military at their earliest opportunity, weakening our nation’s defense.

Republicans/conservatives believe a strong military is an absolute necessity in today’s global environment.  The defense of our country is also the federal government’s primary responsibility per The Constitution.

…   

Democrats/liberals love implementing a seemingly never-ending list of federal regulations designed to suffocate construction, business operations, and whatever else they can think of to stifle our civil liberties.

Republicans/conservatives believe some regulations are necessary, but that less regulation is preferable in order promote businesses and maintain a strong economy.  

… 

Democrats/liberals feel it is a good idea to allow anyone living in our country to vote, regardless of whether they are here legally or not, and regardless of whether the voter has any proper ID to prove who they are.  

Republicans/conservatives believe only legal citizens should be allowed to vote, and that an ID should be required.

Democrats/liberals believe that government should be the “end all be all” for anyone living in America.

Republicans/conservatives believe that government is a “necessary evil,” and that most things are done more efficiently and cheaper by the private sector.

Democrats/liberals believe in a person’s dependence on government, and that having some form of a socialist government is more desirable that our capitalist system, even though no socialist government in the past can be pointed to as a successful government.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in our capitalist way of doing things, providing for ourselves as a rule, and system which allows individuals to rise to any level of success, dependent on the individuals’ desire to attain it.

 … 

Democrats/liberals believe in free speech as long as your speech agrees with their beliefs, if not, they have no problem with censoring or silencing you.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in the 1st Amendment, and that everyone has a right to their own opinions and that they have a right to voice those opinions. 

Democrats/liberals believe rioting, burning, and looting are acceptable forms of “peaceful protesting.”  They believe in deferring to the desires of “the mob” as opposed to following the law.

Republicans/conservatives believe in law and order, and that no one has the right to harm other people or their property as part of their “protest.”

Democrats/liberals prefer to operate in a way that highlights a person’s racial identity, gender identity, or sexual preference above all else…, except their political leaning.  

Republicans/conservatives prefer to identify people by the quality of their character and by their actions and beliefs, without concern for race, color, or creed.

Democrats/liberals believe the United States’ industry, people and economy need to be punished and restricted due to “climate change,” while the rest of the world is allowed to keep right on polluting and taking advantage of us.

Republicans/conservatives believe if “climate change” is real, it wasn’t caused by us and we have no real way of affecting “climate change” one way or the other.

Democrats/liberals believe fossil fuels are evil and need to be done away with.  

Republicans/conservatives believe fossil fuels are still the energy souce of choice right now, at least until other options become viable. Republicans/consrvatives like the US having energy independence, not having to rely on the Middle East for anything, contolling our own energy pricing.

Democrats/liberals believe it’s okay for the “media” to operate as an arm of the democrat party, reporting only things that support their narrative, while attacking republicans/conservatives, and especially President Trump on a daily basis.  

Republicans/conservatives believe the “media” should report from an unbiased point of view, acting as a watchdog against all government improprieties, regardless of which party it is. 

And what about the economy?

Democrats/liberals point to the economy after China, and the democrats I believe, dropped the coronavirus bomb on us.  

Republicans/conservatives point the hottest economy in history, prior to the China virus, and believe President Trump can get our econmy humming again. Without the release of “The virus,” the democrats would not have stood a chance in this election.  

So, like I said in the beginning, “The choice is really quite simple.”  

The differences between democrats/liberals and republicans/conservatives have never been more obvious. 

The question is which side are you on?

If you’re having a hard time deciding who to vote for, you are obviously one confused individual!

There should be no undecided voters at this point. 

If you really are undecided, then maybe you shouldn’t even bother voting.

Just sayin’.

Americans can learn a lot from these Cuban exiles.

Yes…, we can all learn from the Cuban exiles who fled to America, and more specifically to Hialeah, Florida.

Who would know better about the dangers of socialism and communism?

Some of our liberal friends might purport to know better…, but they don’t.

I probably really shouldn’t say that.

Because the liberals do know.

It’s just a sacrifice they are willing to have US all make in order for THEM to wield power.   

Elina Shirazi of Fox News reports, “Florida’s top city for Cuban exiles goes to bat for GOP in 2020.”

“Everyone that flees communism comes to Hialeah,[Florida]” which is known as “Trump Town.”

“The city of Hialeah, outside Miami, is known for its Cuban American community of working families, tight incomes and friendships among neighbors — and as the election nears, many say they’re leaning strongly toward voting for President Trump.”

Vaya Presidente Trump! (Go President Trump!)

‘“Hard-working people, blue-collar workers, Cubans from different generations… come to live here. The grandmas, the fathers, the sons and daughters,’ said Lucy Pereda, who has made Hialeah her longtime home.”

“Many in Hialeah say they’re leaning strongly toward voting for President Trump.”

“Hialeah is home to a greater percentage of Cubans than any other city in the country, according to census data. People like Pereda made Hialeah their home after escaping communist regimes and dictatorships. They shaped what has become a reliably Republican city of over 230,000 that is over 96% Hispanic.”

‘“Everyone that flees communism comes to Hialeah. Hialeah is totally Republican as far as voting, and we are… one of the strongest Trump cities in the whole United States,’ Julio Martinez said.”

I’ve gotta visit this place!

“Current Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s campaign has sought to court Hispanic voters by beefing up Latino staff and launching more Spanish-language ads in Florida. He also has visited several cities in the state, including Kissimmee and Tampa. Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., have both visited Miami.”

Yes, he’s “courting” them, but they’ve all heard his BS before, and they know how that story ends.

“[President] Trump has leaned on a message that the Democratic Party was running on a socialist platform. University of Miami professor Michael Touchton acknowledged that socialism has been a turnoff for many Hispanic voters and a label the Democratic Party can’t shake within the community.”

‘“Republicans have successfully labeled Democrats as leaning towards socialism,’ Touchton said. ‘This reminds Cuban Americans and Venezuelan Americans of their exile and of their need to stand up to communist regimes in Latin America, which they don’t think a Biden administration will do because he’s a Democrat.’”

Excuse me, but republicans don’t have to label democrats as anything.  The democrats freely admit they want to see socialism implemented in the United States. They have defined and labeled themselves.  

‘“I came from Cuba about 14 years ago and I have lived in Hialeah for the last seven years. Hialeah is “Trump Town,’” said Fernando Godo. ‘It’s not Trump versus Biden. It is socialism versus capitalism, government control versus liberty. These are the kinds of things we are looking at.’”

Now there’s the line of the day, Mr. Godo!

“IT’S NOT TRUMP VERSUS BIDEN.  IT IS SOCIALISM VERSUS CAPITALISM, GOVERNMENT CONTROL VERSUS LIBERTY!”

Amen!

That’s what I’m sayin’!

‘“I am an ex-political prisoner. I’m a Cuban exile,’ said independent voter Emilio Izquierdo Jr. He said he came to America in 1980 on the Mariel boatlift, which brought thousands of Cubans to the U.S. ‘Democrats are going more to the left, and every time, the Republican was going more to the right.’”

Independent voter Emilio Izquierdo Jr. said Democrats and Republicans have been moving in opposite directions. (Elina Shirazi/Fox News)

“He said that while he viewed both parties as too partisan, he would rather wear the Trump 2020 hat. ‘Specifically, in this area. The Cuban Americans [who support] Democrats, they are confused, they like socialists. They were people recycled from Cuban communists. I don’t want socialist and communist. I got a bad, bad experience.’”

 “Joe Biden, in my area, doesn’t have too many votes. He’s done even before the elections.”

Thank God for people like the people in Hialeah.

The lessons these Cubans have learned, and the lessons the Venezuelan people have learned, are lessons you don’t want to have to learn…, ever.

Hershel Walker and Kim Klacic at the RNC: The whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Caleb Parke of Fox News reports, “Raised a Democrat and a longtime friend of President Trump, former Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker told ‘The Ingraham Angle’ [a nightly news and opinion-based talk show on the Fox News channel] Monday night he wanted to give people a picture of who the president really is on the first night of the 2020 Republican National Convention.”

ahandk 1

‘“What this president has done for America needs to be known, and I think it’s not being known,’ the former Heisman Trophy winner told Laura Ingraham.”

“Host Laura Ingraham praised Walker for one of the ‘most powerful and memorable speeches of the night’ in which the former NFL player shared advice Trump gave him many years ago and why he is such a strong supporter now.”

‘“I don’t think people really know Donald Trump. I think they look at Donald Trump from a tweet or look at from what he says, and they’re not looking at what he does,’ Walker told Ingraham.”

On top of that, many Americans get a distorted impression of President Trump from the fake news, liberal propaganda media.  The media declines to give this president credit for doing anything positive, while at the same time focusing on negative witch hunts, hoaxes, and personal attacks.

‘“Donald Trump has done more in three years than most presidents have done in eight, and what’s so special about him is he cares about people and that’s what I wanted people to know.’”

“The Trump-supporting football legend spoke about his friendship and how he prays the president gets more time in office.”

ahandk 6

‘“I’ve had a personal friendship with Donald Trump for 37 years, and during all this time he has never, never, never asked Herschel Walker to speak for him, and after they’ve called him all types of names, and I know Donald Trump,’ Walker said. ‘I’ve been with him in very, very special moments and I’ve never seen that in him and that’s why I wanted to speak for him.’”

ahandk 5

Walker noted that he “grew up in the deep south” and that he “knows what racism looks like,” and that “Donald Trump is no racist.”

So, here’s a respected, genuine, and sincere Black man, who has had a “personal friendship with Donald Trump” for 37 years, but the racist and disingenuous commentators and talking heads at CNN and MSNBC continue to attack The President without and basis for their attacks, and claim to know him better.

“He [Walker] added, ‘What this president has done for America needs to be known, and I think it’s not being known. People do not want to mention even the things he’s done in three years … normally when you run for a political party, you don’t know what you say. This president here has done almost everything he said that he was going to do and that counts.’”

“Responding to Democratic Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones’ comments about being attacked by his own party and given Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s controversial comments about Black Americans voting for him, Walker said, ‘I’m not going to call him what even his vice president called him during the debate, he had some racist tendencies.’”

“Walker, 58, said he’s not calling Biden a racist but questions how Democratic vice-presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, can support him now after what she said about him in the primaries [regarding race and sexual assault claims].”

Good question!

But remember, we’re talking about politicians here, and more specifically, democrat politicians. They have NO shame and NO moral standards.

‘“We have a Democratic Party, today, not telling anyone where they stand on anything,’ he said. ‘That is the honest truth, but they want you to go to a voting booth and make an emotional decision.’”

The democrats don’t want to advertise where they stand on issues because they stand with Communist China, and socialist/communist/fascist regimes all around the world, and they know they can’t get elected if this ugly truth is let out of the bag.

“Walker said he wants young African Americans to be free thinkers and educate themselves on the issues.”

‘“I was raised Democrat, and I didn’t know any better, and what’s strange is I’m not saying the Democrat Party is bad, I’m saying it doesn’t fit what I believe,’ he said.”

That’s okay Hershel, but I’ll say it…, I’ll say the democrat party is bad without any reservation.

‘“First of all, I believe in God, I believe in family, I believe in the American flag, I believe in the national anthem. I believe in law and order. While the Democrat Party has not said that they believe in any of those things. That’s what made America beautiful.’”

Walker also believes we can be patriotic and supportive of social justice at the same time.  It doesn’t have to be one or the other.

“The former running back for the [University of Georgia], Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants says sports and politics should be separate.”

“It seems like we have a political civil war right now where people are afraid to speak their mind and that’s sad.’”

And in many cases, people aren’t “afraid to speak their mind,” but they’re being attacked, shunned, boycotted, censored and cancelled.

It is an all-out attack on the first amendment rights of all Americans who won’t bow down to the prescribed liberal narrative.

Megan Henney of Fox News reports, “Baltimore [congressional] candidate Kim Klacik puts Dems on notice over Black support: ‘You’ve Ignored us for too long.’”

Republicans Hold Virtual 2020 National Convention

“Kim Klacik says, “The days of Black voters blindly supporting Democrats are coming to an end!”

“Kim Klacik, a GOP congressional candidate who suggested that Democrats don’t care about Black voters in a viral campaign ad, took aim at Joe Biden in a speech during the first night of the Republican National Convention, accusing the Democratic nominee of believing that Black Americans ‘can’t think for ourselves.’”

You can check out her campaign ad below.

https://twitter.com/kimKBaltimore/status/1295461903268040707?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1295930978582568963%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fkim-klacik-republican-national-convention-speech

“Klacik, who is Black, is the Republican nominee running to represent Maryland’s 7th Congressional district, a Democratic stronghold that was represented for years by the late Rep. Elijah Cummings.”

You know…, Elijah Cummings the saint, Elijah Cummings the fearless fighter for civil rights and justice, Elijah Cummings the African American icon.

ahandk 2

Now ponder his perception with the reality of the condition of his congressional district.

What we’re really talking about here is Elijah Cummings the fraud.

I’ll give Elijah Cummings one thing though…, he sure was good at pulling the wool over the eyes of all of his constituents’ and keeping his flock of democrat sheep on the plantation!

‘“Joe Biden believes we can’t think for ourselves — that the color of someone’s skin dictates their political views,’ she said in her remarks. ‘We’re not buying the lies anymore — you and your party have ignored us for too long.’”

“Black voters as a whole helped Biden clinch the Democratic nomination after a decisive victory during the South Carolina primary. But that success hinges on his support among older Black voters.”

“Klacik rose to national prominence last week when President Trump shared one of her campaign ads, which shows her marching by abandoned rowhouses in a red dress and matching stilettos, lambasting Democratic politicians for abandoning Black Americans.”

‘“Black people don’t have to vote Democrat,’ she says at the end of the 2.5-minute video. Baltimore’s population is about 60% Black, according to the Census Bureau.”

“The ad, titled “Black Lives Don’t Matter to Democrats,” has been viewed more than 11.4 million times.”

“Klacik hit that same theme again on Monday during her address, accusing Democrats of running Baltimore — and other major cities across the country – ‘into the ground,’ despite high taxes.”

And who can dispute that claim?

‘“And yet, the Democrats still assume that Black people will vote for them, no matter how much they let us down and take us for granted,’ she continued. ‘Nope. We’re sick of it and we’re not going to take it anymore. The days of blindly supporting the Democrats are coming to an end!’”

Amen, Kim…, and let’s hope you’re right!

If they look like a duck, and walk like a duck, and talk like a duck…, THEY’RE A DUCK!

I keep hearing all of these conservative commentators referring to the illegal actions by Obama era officials as “failings.” The fake news, liberal propaganda media, of course, chooses to not make any mention of any of this.

To all of my conservative commentator friends referring to the behavior of Obama era administration officials, including Barack Obama himself, as “failings,” I say…,

THESE WERE NOT SIMPLY “FAILINGS!”

THESE WERE PREMEDITATED AND COORDINATED ACTS OF TREASON!

My conservative commentator friends are almost there, but they have to stop acting like these attempts to overthrow a newly, and duly, elected president of The United States were not intentional, but merely blunders of judgement and execution.

If we’re going to hand money out, let’s REALLY hand some money out!

Howard Gleckman, for Forbes Media, says, “Congress is about to pass [actually has already passed] another coronavirus relief bill, adding another $500 billion to the more than $2 trillion it already spent to support business and individuals in the midst of the pandemic. And it likely will approve trillions more in future stimulus in the coming months.”

atrillion 8

And spending money “to support business and individuals” is just a portion of the spending.  There is quite a bit of spending in these “relief” bills that goes to the states and to a whole collection of non-covid related entities just looking for a hand-out.

And what do WE get from all of this spending?  WE get like $1,200…, if we’re lucky.  Many of us will get ZERO because we’re so wealthy or don’t qualify somehow.  Ha!

So, WE may get a measly $1,200 while these other governmental charities get millions and billions of dollars thrown at them.

Our representatives in Washington are already starting to argue over where the next round of trillions of dollars in “relief” spending will go.

atrillion 7

Allow me to offer a suggestion.

JUST GIVE THE PEOPLE SOME RELIEF!

If you’re going to waste OUR money…, “waste it on us!

In your own words Pelosi, quit throwing all of us “crumbs!”

atrillion 5

I’m pretty sure we would do a better job of spending our money than the government does.

Let’s amend that to ABSOLUTELY SURE.

If we gave EVERY adult in the country (209 million people) $25,000, it would cost us 5.225 trillion dollars…, or about what we’ll end up spending anyway in total, anyway.

atrillion 9

If we wanted to get a little crazier, we could give every adult $50,000 at a cost of 10.45 trillion dollars.

And really, what’s another 5 trillion bucks between friends?

No one else seems to be worried about spending money we don’t have.

So, what does a trillion of something look like, anyway?

The United States national debt is currently over 20 trillion dollars. We hear these HUGE numbers thrown around all the time, but does anyone really have a grip on what a BILLION or a TRILLION of anything really looks like?

Just for a refresher on how you get to a Trillion and beyond, recall from grade school the implications of adding three zeros after a “one”.

1 = One

1,000 = One Thousand

1,000,000 = One Million

1,000,000,000 = One Billion

1,000,000,000,000 = One Trillion

1,000,000,000,000,000 = One Quadrillion

1,000,000,000,000,000,000 = One Quintillion

Quadrillions?

Quintillions?

Our national deficit is only in the lower trillions now.

We’ve got a lot of room to grow our debt!

In fact, we’ll never run out of bigger numbers!

That’s just a fact.

The Imagination Station website asks, “OK, so what does a trillion look like?”

The problem with most answers to questions like this is that they try to put it into perspective by relating it to things normal people have no perspective for. For instance, did you know that one trillion dollars would stretch nearly from the earth to the sun?

I don’t know when the last time you traveled from the earth to the sun, but for me this comparison is just as mind-boggling as the concept of a trillion of something.

One Million Pennies

atrillion 1

The Megapenny project uses something a lot more common to most of us, a penny. Most people have a few in their pockets or in a jar and it provides a much better sense of scale. Round up 16 of them, stack them on top of each other into a little pile and it’s one inch tall. Place them side by side in a line and they stretch out one foot.

So much for what’s in your pockets, now break open your piggy banks and gather up one million pennies. One million pennies creates a wall four feet wide, five feet tall and one foot thick.

One Billion Pennies

atrillion 2

Stepping up to a billion, things start to change as we start imagining stacks of pennies the size of a typical school bus. Five school buses to be exact.

Add another three zeros and we begin to enter into the realm of the national debt (in dollars – not pennies). One trillion pennies would create a mind boggling cube with edges nearly as long as a football field.

One Trillion Pennies

atrillion 3

Of course, the final step here is to image twenty (20) of these cubes of pennies. Each penny representing one dollar of the national debt. The physical representation of large numbers is an interesting way to wrap your head around what it means to say something is in the billions or trillions, and beyond.

atrillion 6

So, Congress…, if you’re going to throw all of this “funny money” around…, remember…, it’s not YOUR money, it’s OUR money, and we want some of it back without it having to filter down through your wasteful and misdirected bureaucracy.

Massive Republican voter turnout!

Yes, folks, the people are really turning out for President Trump in these 2020 primaries…, and he’s unopposed!

It’s crazy!

While all we hear is about is the democrat side of things, the real story of these 2020 primaries is the massive republican voter turnout for President Trump.

It seems people can’t wait to get out there and show their support for him!

That, of course, would never be acknowledged by the fake news media!

They wouldn’t want to even come close to promoting that idea, AT ALL…, that there is ANY type of positive news regarding President Trump, or that his support is setting records in all of these primaries.

Julia Musto of Fox News reports that, ‘“Tuesday’s massive voter turnout for my father is unprecedented,’ according to his son Eric.”

avoters 2

Alex Isenstadt, for Politico, agrees, and says, “Trump drives massive turnout in primaries.”

Julia Musto goes on to report that, “Even as an incumbent, President Trump’s nationwide support in primary states is unprecedented because American voters ‘finally feel like they have a voice,’ Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization Eric Trump said Wednesday.”

“In an interview on ‘Fox & Friends,’ [Eric] Trump explained that the president had more than 600,000 incumbent voters in the highly-contested and delegate-rich state of Michigan. By comparison, former President Barack Obama clinched just under 175,000 [in his re-election campaign].”

‘“So, he was three times Obama as an incumbent, right?’ he asked. ‘So, the last incumbent in 2012…My father has three times the amount of votes cast for him in Michigan than Obama did.’”

“Trump added that there was an ‘even more impressive’ statistic recorded in Washington State,” of all places.

‘“My father has 520,000 votes cast for him right now, alright? There’s only 67 percent in, so votes are still coming in Washington State. No other person in the history of the state has ever gotten to those vote numbers before,’ he said.”

‘“Guys, we’re seeing this across the country. The turnout — I mean he’s not running against anybody. The turnout for a guy who is the incumbent – we’ve never seen numbers like this,’ Trump stated.”

Aaaaaand the liberal, fake news media chooses to look the other way.

Propaganda by omission.

“Trump said that the results of Tuesday’s primaries were the continuation of a pattern of success the president’s campaign had seen during the Iowa caucuses and Nevada primaries.”

‘“I spoke at the Iowa caucuses and I had 600-700 people in a room in an uncontested convention and every single person was wearing a Trump shirt, was wearing a Trump hat,’ Trump continued further. ‘People are pissed off at [the] government. They don’t like the other candidates at all.’”

‘“My father is bringing back the pride of this nation. Everything he’s doing is American; it’s patriotic,’ he concluded. ‘People finally feel like they have a voice again and that’s why people are turning out in record numbers even when they don’t have to.’”

According to Alex Isenstadt, for Politico, “President Donald Trump doesn’t have much of a primary fight on his hands — but Republican voters are nevertheless turning out in droves for him, a warning sign for Democrats in November.”

“The massive turnout is a reflection of organic enthusiasm among conservatives.”

“The President doesn’t have much of a primary fight on his hands?”

How about The President doesn’t have anywhere near a primary fight on his hands, and voters are still turning out in droves for him?

I do agree, however, that this is “a warning sign for Democrats in November.”

The warning sign should read, “Get off of the tracks, because the Trump train is coming and we’re not stopping for anyone or anything!”

“Republicans [are] turning out in historic numbers.”

How many times have we heard the term “historic numbers” the last three years?

And the numbers referred to are all historically positive…, regarding the economy, employment, poverty rates, energy, trade, and on and on.

“Trump received more than 31,000 votes in the Iowa caucus, surpassing the 25,000 Democrats who turned out during Barack Obama’s successful 2012 reelection bid. Trump’s share was more than four times the number of Republicans who caucused during George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign.”

“The vote totals in New Hampshire were even starker. The president received 129,696 votes, more than doubling Obama and Bush’s totals.”

“Republicans such as Ralph Reed, the founder and chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, said Trump’s record on issues dear to conservatives drove turnout in the first two states. He and others said Democrats’ recent impeachment push also motivated his supporters.”

‘“Impeachment has lit a fire under the Trump base — and I anticipate it will burn until Election Day in November,’ said former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman, chairman of the pro-Trump Republican Jewish Coalition.”

Oh yeah, Norm!  The fire is definitely lit, and the democrats and their co-conspirators, the fake news, just keep throwing more logs on that fire.

The democrats have decided to throw patience, caution and subtlety to the wind, and they are going to pay dearly for that in November and on into the future.

The democrats’ lies and true anti-American desires have been exposed, and they’re not backing down…, but we aren’t either anymore!

WINNING!

As usual, the democrats just don’t get it, or they refuse to acknowledge reality.

As reported in the annual Annenberg survey, only 32% of Americans can name our three branches of government and 33% can’t name any of the branches of our government!

With that in mind, I realize I’m going a little out on a limb here discussing British politics…, but I believe MrEricksonRules’ readers are well informed and interested in how the recent British elections may relate to the upcoming U.S. election in 2020.

According to Adam Shaw, Paul Steinhauser and Kelly Phares of Fox News, “Left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn saw his party mauled in Britain’s general election Thursday as its strongholds across the country fell to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party — a dramatic result that commentators on both sides of the pond are seeing as a warning to socialist-leaning Democrats ahead of the U.S. presidential election.”

adems 9

“And for those who have openly cautioned about the party’s drift to the left, the U.K. results were treated as nothing short of a wake-up call. A sign, for some, that even a populist incumbent as irreverent and contentious as Johnson could ride to victory when the alternative is an equally controversial leftist vowing massive government expansion.”

Or perhaps an irreverent populist is just what the British people are looking for!

The liberals would never admit that, however.  This was obviously just some sort of mistake or a strategical miscalculation.

‘“Maybe this is the canary in the coal mine,’ Democratic presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg, who has tried to sell himself as a more electable alternative to candidates like Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders since entering the race last month, told reporters Friday.”

adems 6

And therein lies the problem with the democrats…, they’re always trying to “sell themselves” as something they’re not rather than just being honest about what they stand for.

Anyway…, nice analogy Mr. Bloomberg!

Only you think the canary dying symbolizes some sort of a warning for liberals, while I think it is symbolizing the death of the Democrat Party!

‘“The public clearly wanted a change in the U.K. The change was much more rapid and [had] greater magnitude than anyone had predicted. And I think it’s sort of a catastrophic warning to the Democratic Party that you’re just going to have to have somebody that can beat Donald Trump, and that is not going to be easy.”

adems 2

The problem here is, “Bloomy,” otherwise known as “Mr. Excitement…,” the majority of the people have to want a change for some reason, and President Trump hasn’t given them one. In fact, he has acquired supporters who feel he has, and is, doing a good job.

President Trump has proven he’s not your typical politician.

He has kept all of his campaign promises, and has accumulated quite a list of accomplishments along the way regarding the economy, energy, VA policies, positive minority policies, trade imbalances and foreign policy, just to name a few.

“Americans want change, but I think they don’t want revolutionary change,” the centrist billionaire said. “They want evolutionary change.”

What does that mean?

Please…, don’t even pretend to know what most Americans want, “Bloomy.”

“[Boris] Johnson’s Tories won 365 seats in Parliament’s lower chamber, with Labour picking up just 203. It hands the Conservatives their biggest majority since the days of Margaret Thatcher and marks the worst showing for Labour since the 1930s. The left-wing party was left shell-shocked after a night that saw once-safe seats in working-class areas turn Tory, with enormous swings that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.”

Ha!  Ya…, we know what “shell-shocked liberals look like!

adems 10

“Seats in places such as Bolsover, Workington, Blyth Valley, Burnley, Wrexham and Stoke-on-Trent toppled one after another, each one yet another nail in the coffin of Labour’s hopes of ushering in a socialist government and preventing Britain’s departure from the European Union. It represented what many commentators are seeing as a realignment in British politics, as the Conservatives ripped up the electoral map and made gains in the North East, the North West and Wales in particular.”

This is comparable to President Trump winning the “rust belt” manufacturing states, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in the 2016 presidential election.

adems 11

“Corbyn announced that he would eventually step down, promising not to lead the party in another general election, but saying that would come after a ‘period of reflection.’ He quickly tried to set the narrative that it was questions over Brexit, not his brand of hard-left policies that had ‘ultimately doomed the party.’”

Like I said…, these liberals just don’t get it.

There won’t be any “period of reflection…,” only a period of “restrategization.”

‘“All those policies were extremely popular during the election campaign and remain policies that have huge popular support all across this country,’ he said. ‘However Brexit has so polarized and divided debate in this country it has overriden so much of a normal political debate and I recognize that has contributed to the results the Labour Party has received all across this country.’”

Please stop trying to kid yourself and the British people.  I mean, we can all see exactly how “extremely popular” your policies were across your country.

Wa, wa, wa, waaaaaa.

“But while many of the seats that fell represent ‘pro-Leave’ [pro-Brexit] areas, polls suggested that it was Corbyn — and his extreme brand of left-wing politics — that was a more significant factor for Brits. Corbyn had taken over the party leadership in 2015 and dragged it to the left in a rejection of the kind of centrism embodied by three-term Prime Minister Tony Blair.”

Like I said…, these liberals just don’t get it, and they are refusing to allow the will of the people to affect their narrative.

“It’s a lesson that many in the U.K. and the U.S. are saying should be a warning for Democrats who may think that victory lies with an uncompromising agenda featuring government health care, immigration enforcement rollbacks and more. Democrats like Sens. Sanders, I-Vt., and Warren, D-Mass., have promoted far-reaching policies such as ‘Medicare-for-all’ and a halt to deportations of illegal immigrants — leading some to fear they may be out of step with the country.”

They’re only “out of step” with those of us who want to see America succeed.

They’re only “out of step” with those of us who work, or have worked, for a living.

And they’re only “out of step” with those of us who are informed and use our common sense.

‘“One lesson from the UK: if the Democrats don’t stop their hard-left slide, they’ll suffer the same fate as Labour,’ commentator Andrew Sullivan tweeted. ‘If they don’t move off their support for mass immigration, they’re toast. Ditto the “wokeness.” Left [leaning] Twitter is not reality.’”

No worries there!

Toast it is!

“Former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan warned also about the Twitter bubble, and that Democrats should be careful about picking someone too far on the fringes.”

‘“Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren both share Jeremy Corbyn’s socialist agenda and both appear to be as popular as him on Twitter,’ Morgan said in an op-ed. ‘But Twitter’s not the real world.’”

“He also drew comparisons between the British Left’s effort to thwart Brexit and the Democratic push to impeach Trump, rather than beat him at the ballot box.”

‘“Those who voted for Brexit and Trump don’t take kindly to their democratic vote being abused in this way and their retribution comes at the ballot box,’ he said. ‘If people think Boris Johnson’s earthquake was big, just wait until the Senate acquits President Trump and he uses that victory to storm to re-election.’”

Amen!

“But if there is that kind of warning for Americans, it may be a message that meets significant resistance from activists hoping for their own version of a Corbynite revolution, and who may not be put off by the warning signs in Thursday’s vote.”

In other words…, the anti-American liberals, “the swamp,” RINOs (Mitt Romney for example), and the generally clueless.

“MSNBC host Chris Hayes pointed out that Corbyn is running in a way that many Democrats would like to see.”

Again…, like I said…, these liberals just don’t get it, and they are refusing to allow the will of the people to affect their narrative.

‘“One thing you can’t say about the Corbyn campaign was that he was “Tory lite” [conservative lite] or too neoliberal or too establishment. He ran unabashedly from the left in a way many leftists want Democrats to run here in the U.S.,’ he tweeted. But after some criticism he deleted it, saying it was a ‘bad take.’”

And that was his problem!

Here we had a liberal that didn’t pretend to be something he wasn’t.

And that’s exactly why he and his party got whooped so bad!

“But the message of the U.K. election had also resonated in the White House. On Friday, [President] Trump suggested that just as the 2016 Brexit referendum foreshadowed his own presidential win a few months later, the 2019 U.K. election forecasts a win for him in 2020.”

‘“I want to congratulate Boris Johnson on a terrific victory. I think that might be a harbinger of what’s to come in our country,’ he said. ‘It was last time.’”

It might very well be a “harbinger of what’s to come in our country,” Mr. President.

And if that were the case, that would mean a landslide victory you.

But what would a “landslide” victory look like for you?

First of all, a landslide victory for you would include your personal victory as well as maintaining control of the senate and regaining control of the House of Representatives.

Second, we would see you capturing a considerable majority of electoral votes.

What do I mean by a “considerable majority of electoral votes?”

Well, there are 538 total electoral votes that can be won.

The winner is the first candidate to win 270 of those votes.

The democrat in the race is virtually guaranteed to win 151 votes because of the liberal dominance in states like California, New York, Illinois, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia.

That means a landslide victory for President Trump would be in the range of 340-350 electoral votes.  He won 304 electoral votes in 2016.

Lastly, President Trump would come very close to, if not winning the popular vote outright.

It is my belief that President Trump WILL win re-election in a “landslide” victory in 2020.

WINNING!
