Sorry Leftists, You Haven’t Destroyed Trump’s Popularity

Published

on

The left tried as hard as it could to destroy Donald Trump, realizing what a threat he was to their positions because he was so popular and aggressively pursued conservative positions. But even after defeating him in the presidential election, which a majority of Republicans believe was due to fraud, they have made little inroads into ruining his continuing leadership across the country. Despite the vast amounts of media spin — attempting to make it look like no one likes him, that his life is in disarray, he’s a has-been and crooked — it’s not working. 

 

Trump made one of his first handful of major appearances after resuming private life in Sarasota, Florida, on Saturday, and people lined up camping overnight in order to get in. A huge crowd of 20,000 attended. During his speech, Trump called the election “rigged and dishonest.” The left and its comrades in the MSM consistently label anyone as a conspiracy theorist and label their concerns as false who suggest there was significant election fraud. The left dredges up some radical fringe people who have come up with bizarre arguments about the election, and highlight them constantly as if they represent the rest of conservatives. 

 

But it’s not working, because people see through the facade. There was so much election fraud that anyone who did their own research to find it, outside of reading MSM articles, cannot be swayed. The amount of deceit in the MSM over the fraud is causing people to dig their heels in and defend Trump even more. Only people who fail to look outside of the MSM and the top results from what shows up in a biased Google search can continue to blindly accept the propaganda. The number of credible people speaking up on the right, and even people not traditionally on the right who have done their own independent investigations into the election fraud, is huge.  

 

The left hoped by incessantly pointing out Trump’s flaws that the right would desert him. But his flaws were pretty normal, and nothing worse than many other presidents. Sure he likes to exaggerate small details, but it’s part of his personality and he does it regarding things that don’t matter, such as saying he’s everyone’s favorite president. You could point out flaws equally as bad in other presidents; many of them aren’t as widely known due to the lack of the internet and social media in bygone eras. 

 

The MAGA movement was genius and the left hates Trump for it. They don’t actually hate him because he said something crude about women once (many of their far left heroes have said far worse about women), they don’t hate him because the CFO of the Trump Organization may have messed up on taxes, and they don’t hate him because he’s egotistical. They hate him because he’s highly effective. The rest is a disguise to convince conservatives to desert him. Many conservatives have far worse flaws themselves, or have a relative who is a decent American who has those flaws, so they see through the hysteria. 

 

Conservatives love Trump precisely because he exposed those lies in the MSM unlike any previous president, even Ronald Reagan. He popularized the expression “fake news” which polls show worked, hurting the media’s credibility. His supporters aren’t swayed by the spin about him, instead it has the opposite effect, reinforcing their beliefs about the bias. 

 

Left-wing activist prosecutors have been trying to take Trump down, but their efforts are fizzling. After more than two years investigating Trump and his business, all that controversial Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. could come up with was indicting the CFO of the Trump Organization for failing to report fringe benefits he received on his taxes — nothing to do with Trump. Considering the vast resources of Vance’s office, and the fact a good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, it’s a sign this is going nowhere. The left will keep hysterically hyping it up, and Vance’s life will be miserable for awhile, but the left’s sick attempts to put Trump in prison are failing. Vance previously attempted to prosecute Trump’s associate Paul Manafort, but a judge threw out the charges. 

 

The left went into hysterics condemning the protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, trying to pin the actions of a few violent protesters on Trump, but most people have now heard the full story and seen through the intense spin. The left acted as if the day’s events were similar to an insurrection starting a civil war, but the actions of a handful of people were no more violent than many Antifa and Black Lives Matter protests. Consequently, those “mostly peaceful” protesters aren’t being sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty. The only person sentenced so far pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor and didn’t even get any jail sentence.

 

Contrast this with the left’s stunning silence about the violence caused by Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Or their silence about BLM activist John Earle Sullivan, who prosecutors say told another individual that he joined the January 6 riot in order to instigate Trump supporters into violence. He was caught on video breaking a window at the Capitol in order to enter through it. During a speech outside the Capitol in 2020, Sullivan said he wanted to burn it down and rip Trump out of office. If Sullivan had not participated that day, urging people to riot so he could make thousands selling the videos to the MSM, would the violence have even happened? 

 

Even if Trump chooses not to run again for president in 2024, he is still a powerful influence in American politics. Republican politicians still covet his endorsement. He may be incredibly effective if he launches a social media platform to rival Facebook and Twitter, and goes further, venturing into traditional broadcast media and competing with other tech giants such as Google. Donald Trump Jr., who is brilliant, is more careful what he says than his father. It doesn’t matter if the left stops his father from running in 2024, Trump Jr. will be just as effective.

GOP Primaries, for GOP Registered Voters

It is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate

Published

on

Let us resolve to keep our primary voting to those who are registered Republicans. One can make the argument that there are closet Republicans who, for fear of reprisal in the workplace, cannot join the Republican party but are, nevertheless, Republican in sentiment.

However, this is a small group. And, they are more than offset by hordes of Democrats who, if allowed into Republican primaries will do their dirty work as they have done throughout counties in North Carolina and throughout the nation.

Only Republicans

Overall, it is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate.

As a case in point, on the national level, the RINO Nikki Haley would be out of the race if not for Democrat voters stepping over the line in coordinated effort and voting in Republican primaries. Granted, she is backed by billionaire mega-donors who fear Donald Trump. If Democrats could not vote in the GOP primaries, however, the mega-donors dollars wouldn’t be worth much.

As a result of Haley staying in the race, Donald Trump has to spend a bit more than otherwise, and deflect some of his attention away from the Democrats, the swamp, and the Marxist’s plans to destroy our country.

Fracturing Along Fault Lines

The panoply of liberal and Leftist policies are harmful to society

Published

on

Biden and company want to contort the right to vote, endlessly fund Ukraine, kowtow to Middle East terrorists, pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, disband the electoral college, treat January 6th protestors like insurrectionists, convict Trump on SOMETHING, appease China, and permanently make tens of millions of Americans totally dependent on government entitlements.

In recent years, the questionable lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates over COVID-19, and Democrats’ willingness to overlook street violence, enhances my view that the Left loves the idea of total authority and forevermore imposing its will on all of us.

Insanity Over the Top

The panoply of liberal or Leftist viewpoints, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the 1st Amendment, to indoctrinating children is harmful to society.

Is it acceptable to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe, as Leftists do that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers ought to be reading to children at story hour? Should the sciences, mathematics, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?

Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Martin Luther King, Jr, must be rolling over in his grave. Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?

Should student loans be exonerated? Should colleges establish safe spaces? Are you perturbed when conservative speakers are disrupted from speaking on campus, or are banned from campus? Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats?

Open the Spigots!

Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Is late-trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live?

Should we have open borders, and let in anyone who wants to come here, now approaching 9 million since Biden was installed? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare once they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live TV in 2020? How do hordes arrive at the southern border, well-fed and hydrated, after trekking 100s or 1000s of miles, with sturdy walking shoes and cell phones? Should they be flown and bussed all over the U.S. courtesy of the Biden administration? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual U.S. citizens?

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions by giving World War II coverage to carefully crafted, elevated cases?

Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a perceived wrong? Is a comment from 30 or 40 years ago made by a celebrity — or a politician, for that matter — enough to cancel his or her career?

Goals and Tactics of Violent Groups

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd, how many of them actually hold jobs?

In pursuit of protests, do any pay for their own transportation and housing costs? If they do not pay for themselves, who is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?

The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd all the time. Yet, it appears that Leftists do not understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. Their agenda, fully implemented, would destroy our civilization in less than a few years.
One Generation

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”

It would be nice to reach consensus, in some way, with those on the Left, however, my sensibilities cry out and say that would be cultural and national suicide.
