Wake up America. Don't you understand that Donald Trump is endangering America by allowing the decimation of many of America's iconic cities rather than employ the resources of the Federal Government to stop rioters and looters? Don't you remember how the mayor of Minneapolis begged the President to send the National Guard to put down marauding gangs of white kids pretending to be black but President Trump said no? Have you forgotten that New York City's Mayor DeBlasio pleaded with Donald Trump to send US Marshals and the National Guard to protect the businesses on Fifth Avenue and to keep arrested criminals in jail? Why did Donald Trump stay on the golf course and refuse to accept phone calls from the Mayors of Seattle and Portland beseeching him to send Federal police and investigators to their fair cities? And what about the heated entreaties from the Governors of New York, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon, Illinois and Washington demanding that President Trump send troops to help their respective police forces to put down the violence?
Yes. Wake up. Any person blaming Donald Trump for the mayhem unleashed in the cities and states under the control of Democrats is either delusional, addled by dementia or just a goddamn liar. The record is clear–every time President Trump tried to bring Federal resources to the cities and states facing an onslaught of extreme left anarchists, the Democrats closed ranks and even cheered on the so-called protests as frenzied looters torched and ravished businesses and neighborhoods.
Look at the record. Why has no one informed Democrats that there are new technologies, such as video tape and audio recordings, which memorialize their staunch opposition to seeking and accepting Federal intervention?
When President Trump sent Federal Law Enforcement personnel into Portland to protect the Federal Courthouse and its employees, what did the Democrats and their supporters say?
The Democrat leaning host of the view howled:
that President Trump was ushering in fascism and the end of democracy by sending federal forces to intervene in ongoing protests in Portland, Ore.
"I'm witnessing fascism in America now," co-host Joy Behar said. "I don't know if people in this country are aware of what's actually going on."
Democrats of all stripes went full brain dead zombing in repeating the fascist mantra:
Democrats have presented these law-enforcement professionals as introducing fascism to America. The House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, called them ‘stormtroopers’, engaged in ‘kidnapping protesters’. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez referred to them as ‘secret police’. More locally, the Democrat mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, called the federal presence ‘a direct threat to our democracy’. The city’s commissioner, Choloe Eudaly, said Trump was ‘attempting to use Portland as a proving ground for fascism’.
Seattle's Mayor Durken and Washington State Governor chimed in chirping like deranged lemmings:
Durkan told reporters Friday that the use of federal agents by the U.S. government was "frightening."
"At this point," Durkan said, "I have to presume that what is happening in Portland could happen here."
Washington Governor Jay Inslee expressed a worry that, if pressed into action, the federal agents would not take the requests of local government into consideration. "It is critical that the administration only provide what is needed by state and local officials," Inslee tweeted Friday, "and do not engage unless asked."
Not a single Democrat in a position of leadership in a city or state under siege by rioters stood up and asked for Federal help. They sat idle, modern day Nero's fiddling while their cities and neighborhoods were tattooed with smoldering ruins and plywood adorned store fronts.
But a growing number of Americans, unlike the fogged brain of Joe Biden and his equally demented followers, recognize the true source of the chaos and are not blaming Trump.
One of the first blaring klaxons sounding the alarm that voters were not buying the shit sandwich the Democrats were offering for their dining pleasure came courtesy of the New York Times–How Chaos in Kenosha Is Already Swaying Some Voters in Wisconsin:
As residents see fires and looting, some worry that local Democratic leaders are failing to keep control of the situation.
John Geraghty, a 41-year-old worker in a tractor factory, has barely paid attention to the presidential race or the conventions. Every day he focuses on survival: getting his son to sports practice, working at his job where he now wears a mask, and getting home to sleep, only to start over again the next day.
But when he woke up on Monday morning to images of his hometown, Kenosha, Wis., in flames, he could not stop watching. The unrest in faraway places like Portland, Ore., and Minneapolis had arrived at his doorstep, after a white police officer on Sunday shot a Black man in the back multiple times. And after feeling “100 percent on the fence” about who he will vote for in November, he is increasingly nervous that Democratic state leaders seem unable to contain the spiraling crisis.
“It’s crazy that it’s now happening in my home city,” he said. “We have to have a serious conversation about what are we going to do about it. It doesn’t seem like the powers that be want to do much.”
The politically calculated warnings of President Trump and the Republican Party about chaos enveloping America should Democrats win in November are reverberating among some people in Kenosha, a small city in the southeast corner of one of the most critical states in this election, where protests have raged for a number of increasingly combustible nights.
“There’s people running all over with guns — it’s like some Wild West town,” Mr. Biehn said. “We are just waiting here like sitting ducks waiting to get picked off.”
He added: “It’s chaos — everybody is afraid.”
Mr. Trump, he said, “was not my man,” but now he is grateful he is president.
He said he seemed to understand in a way that other politicians did not.
The clown car that is CNN also realized that their campaign to install a senile Joe Biden as head of a new socialist revolution was burning like a looted Target:
Tuesday on CNN, network anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden needed to address the rioting in Wisconsin after a video of Kenosha resident Jacob Blake being shot by police made its way onto the internet.
Cuomo said, “You have COVID and Kenosha, Don, and what’s happening in Wisconsin, it’s a Rorschach test for where this country is, and I think it probably represents the biggest threat to the Democratic cause.”
Speaking of Cuomo and his mini-me psycho Mayor of New York City, the so-called shining star of cities, New York, is beginning to resemble one of the bloody scenes from Mel Gibson's movie about the collapse of the Mayan Civilization, Apocalypto.
Crime stats from this past week (August 17-23) record a bloody rampage worthy of a Mayan priest cutting the beating hearts out of writhing victims: 17 murders, 79 shooting victims, and 59 shootings. That's 96 families. 96 people.
Victor Davis Hanson recent contribution, seizing on the Apocalypto meme, provides a brilliant exposition of Democrat induced chaos unfolding on the West Coast of the United States. He concludes his masterful piece with a rhetorical question:
When will the madness end?
Not until Nancy Pelosi’s Napa Valley estate is without power and her boutique ice cream collections all melt.
Not until the Silicon Valley private academies are forced to diversify, as inclusion trainers recruit the very poor and undocumented from Mexico and Central America into their student bodies.
Not until the Google and Facebook employees leave their beds in parked cars and buses and break into their employers’ lobbies to sleep better at night.
Not until the Malibu “help” strike, demand unionization, and are paid for nannying, housecleaning, yardwork, and cooking at the going SEIU rates.
Not until Antifa and BLM begin prying up 2,000–2,500 terrazzo stars of all the Hollywood Walk of Fame living and dead who did not meet their 2020 woke requirements.
Not until a retired Jerry Brown is forced to commute daily to a new consulting job on the 99.
Not until the showers in the Zuckerberg estates blast out sand rather than water.
And not until Gavin Newsom finally is forced to pay own his delinquent property-tax bill and comply with tax laws governing the huge gifts bequeathed to him.
Not until they put homeless tents and shelters on the curb outside Diane Feinstein’s mansion.
Not until the homeless and paroled are put up at the Fairmont and the Mark Hopkins.
Not until Barbra Streisand gets a recording when she calls 911 after her seaside estate is besieged.
Not until Hetch Hetchy and its artificially constructed aqueducts dry up and the Bay Area has no water delivered from afar, as it resorts to its preferable natural arid state.
When all that happens, California will begin to change.
In other words — never
We can excuse Joe Biden, who is sadly slipping beneath the waves of dementia, for not realizing that embracing chaos, revolution and the demonization of most Americans as racists is a recipe for political disaster.
If Abraham Lincoln were alive today, I'm sure he would add a new pithy, witty amendment to his trenchant definition of a hypocrite:
The man who murdered his parents, and then pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan.”
The Democrats are hypocrites desperate to blame Donald Trump for the mayhem they have sown and planted. Joe Biden may have forgotten who is responsible, but a growing number of voters have not. And the blame is not with Donald Trump.
Strange times indeed.approaching full psychosis.Watched a video of a black man shoot himself as the cops approached him.like the matrix where one chooses between a red or green pill someone has now introduced the black pill.Thats right 3 pills to choose from.Waiting in anticipation for the defining event of the 2020 us elections
People living in their fictional world ruled by there prejudice.
Kamala Harris claims the nation is “tired and angry” because of the chaos Trump keeps triggering.
Expect major blowback, Kamala. Stick to what you do best; because it ain’t political punditry.
I don’t know if these are just events in a few block area or if it’s widespread. It appears Portland violence is gonna ratchet up. Clashes reported between Antifa and Trump supporters.
What I don’t understand AT ALL is that apparently leftists believed – until polling told them otherwise – it was a winning strategy to support the months-long rioting. How is it possible anyone with an IQ above 100 could even think that?
Another thing that has me scratching my head is the difference between the DNC and RNC conventions. The Democrats’ convention couldn’t have been more lame. One would expect the party that enjoys the overwhelming support of Hollywood and Big Tech to turn out a far-superior production. Instead, the opposite was true. And that doesn’t even take into account the dreary at best and offensive at worst tone of the whole thing. On the other hand, I was astounded by the polished production values of the Republican convention and the profundity of many of the speakers. It blew me away. And then we were treated to the repulsive scene in DC afterwards when people were assaulted and harassed. It was sickening to see.
I just don’t get it – are the Democrats trying to lose?
You left out victim of white oppression, Ophrah Winfrey, who is claiming we need Justice! for Breonna Taylor (Cannon Hinnant was unavailable for comment.) and the Say Her Name! crowd who attacked the sponsor of the Justice for Breanna Taylor act, Senator Rand Paul just yesterday
A few bright notes, Jeff Bezos is $40 billion richer (Thanks Covid19 and governor’s lockdown orders) and not a single Amazon warehouse has been torched. And the press, ABC/CBS/NBC/AOL adnauseum all report “protests” confronted the Senator.
Meanwhile, new science shows that those infected with the AR15 Virus in Kenosha will not riot again. America’s politicians, led by Beto O’Rourke, are deeply concerned.
This doesn’t deal with Biden or the revolutionaries, but it does deal with past concerns of LJ and many others:
“As to who launched the disinformation campaign against Flynn, the jury is still out.
Best evidence, however, suggests forces within the CIA working in tandem with its friends in the media.”
This is like shooting fish in a barrel for Trump. I can’t see how he doesn’t win in a landslide. I also can’t see how anyone actually goes into a voting booth, pulls shut the curtains, and physically, actually, pulls down a voting lever till it clicks for Joe Biden. And I am not a Trump supporter in any way. It’s a country of ridiculous, spoiled, overfed, superfluous people. Emphasis on ridiculous. On Twitter, seemingly educated, articulate, people demonstrate their actual cretinism by justifying the burning and lootings of businesses by invoking the word “insurance.” I would execute them on national TV but that’s just me.
Great piece Larry
Fourth and Long is right, you don’t need to be a polling expert to detect that the mood of the nation is shifting fast. If the choice facing you is either order or chaos the niceties of choosing a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ leader become irrelevant. Trump is consistently standing for order while the Democrats and their anarchist supporters are lost in arguments over whether looting is OK if the looters really need the stuff they take.
Biden will have to go. I just can’t see the DNC backing this charismaless three legged donkey when even the skewed official polls catch up and have Trump in the lead.
I expect some democratic politicians in red states to switch over, why beat a dead horse? Pelosi and Shumer won’t change and seem intent on riding out the spiraling down to the end. I really wish Tulsi would come over, who knows, maybe President Trump might offer her a position in the administration.
One can dream, can’t they?
Fourth and Long, Barbara Ann
A month ago it seemed that Trump was on the ropes and Obama was going to pull a rabbit out of the hat by getting Biden across the finish line. Now it seems that Trump is gaining and you believe he is going to win a “landslide”.
Remember that folks really only pay attention after Labor Day and we have yet to know what the October Surprise is. And there are very few undecideds. It will come down to turnout. If there are a large number of mail-in ballots who knows how that all turns out.
This presidential election was always about a handful of states – Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania.
Even more important is who controls the Senate. The Republicans are at a disadvantage since they are defending 26 seats compared to the Democrats defending 12.
The big question is what if the Democrats and their corporate media supporters and officials in key counties in the handful of states create a setup of complete uncertainty. Counts & re-counts! Will Trump fight back? He didn’t when Clapper, Comey & Brennan ran interference in 2016/2017.
2016: Democrats own chaos
2018: Democrats own anarchy
2020: Democrats own chaos, anarchy and violence.
The national mood is now owned by Trump. But the mechanics of the voting process is still owned by the Democrats and SEIU.
Never sleep, Democrats can still easily steal this election. It is not the number of votes, it is who counts the votes and Stalin cynically observed. Volunteer at your local election office, be a poll worker, be an election count observer.
Kamala Harris only slept her way part of the way to the top. The other part is because Californians slept through her vote count process for AG, when she finally “won” weeks after the long slow SEIU vote count.
Hey rick, your memory is long and nasty. What is really up with you?
Not sure what adblocker allows to get through.
Infotainment docudrama scheduled a month before election.
A lot can happen in 2 months for sure, most of it very bad for Biden’s chances if his handlers let him anywhere near a microphone, let alone a debate.
The core TDS crowd will turn up and vote for an empty chair, but Michael Moore (of all people) is right when he says the Democrats’ poor (and getting worse) polling compared to 2016 is down to the candidate. Plenty of scope for stay-at-homes if Biden’s evident unsuitability for the presidency becomes even more obvious.
I think there is a good chance he’ll be asked/told to stand down on health grounds IFO someone else. Maybe that was the plan all along.
VD Hanson is a cuck and a neocon apologist, but he’s the only halfway decent talking head that boomer conservatives have left. I hope one day he finally has the courage to publicly break with the Israel Firsters. If he’s worried about losing his sinecure or minor celebrity status, I’m sure Tucker will still have him on.
If you want to talk stats on crime and race, you need to be paying attention to Colin Flaherty and Steve Sailer.
I recall all the “Lock her Up” sloganeering during the 2016 election. What happened after Trump won? There were no real investigations of the Clinton classified information leaks or the fundraising and disbursements of the Clinton Foundation, let alone any indictments.
Then there was the coup attempt. Trump himself did nothing other than tweet.
So, if Trump gets re-elected what happens to the Antifa/BLM rioters & looters AND more importantly those that orchestrated it all behind the scenes?
It all seems a scam to me.
Watch this video.
Trump seems to me to lack any concept of what is strategic or tactical. He was the target of a rolling coup d’etat from the beginning but got in a Twitter war with Rosie O’Donnell so help me. He’s had excellent insight into the numerous ways the US has had to deal with numerous foreign free riders but has been curiously blind in a host of other areas. Art. IV, Sect. 4 allows him to repel invasion but he’s allergic to that word and has insisted on proceeding under legislation pertaining to “emergency.” Nice and vague.
His response to the supposed Khan Sheikhoun chemical incident was precipitous and based on a spurious assessment. His sanctions on Syria are petty, as is his determination to deny it any kind of reconstruction aid. Now it’s Nascar in Mesopotamia with the Russians.
Don’t expect him to call for the return of Glass-Steagall or to get off his absurd notion that the stock market highs are an indicator of economic health.
And his odd passivity and inaction that you point out are beyond mystifying. He’s utterly failed to use his pulpit to point out the danger of this obstruction and subversion and if he has a Dept. of Justice to assist him any way it’s news to me. DOJ’s hot to trot on Bannon and Flynn and other threats to the Republic but by jimminy it’s polishing those commas when it comes to the Brennan-Comey-Page-Strzok Potomac Route Army.
Oh, well. It’s all about the correlation of forces now. Spending, debt, desperation monetary fiddling, and economic pain will cause whatever.
Sounds like you might be military. Businessmen like Trump have no conception whatever of the difference between tactics and strategy. They use the words but don’t understand the difference. In every case they just mean a plan.
