Just now it looks like the Democrats and their temporarily friendly allied hordes of marxo-anarchists are on a path to win the presidency and both houses of congress in November.
This is a remarkable reversal in the political world since the period immediately before the arrival of the CODIV-19 hysteria with its opportunity for epidemiologists to "be all they could be." In that long ago era, the US economy was going from strength to strength. Trump's statements about that lost economy are hyperbolic as usual but correct in their essence. His re-election seemed assured by that economy and the failure of the Democrats to bring him down intra-term. God knows they tried!
Now Trump is seriously down in all the polls, possibly because the citizenry has come to think that he really is a weak man who is unable to understand that the pathetic mobs could be easily cowed into quietude by a significant use of force against them. Rather than do that, he dithers and seems to embrace the State Department battle cry "Don't shoot! Don't shoot! They'll kill us all!" The ghost of Kent State is widely invoked in Republican circles as "proof" of the fatal political results of the use of force. IMO Senator Cotton is right.
The Democrats have embraced the COVID-19 panic inspired house arrest of the country. It should be obvious to the casual observer that they are doing everything they can to hold down the economy and maintain a high level of misery until they win in November. The general public panic is being successfully promoted in spite of the low death rates from the disease in the general public. The agreement of the triumvirs; Cuomo, Murphy and Lamont to close the NY city region to "foreign" travelers from threatening COVID-19 infected areas is an obvious signal that a depressed economy MUST BE MAINTAINED at all cost (until November)
The wave of anarcho-marxist guerrilla agitprop attacks serves the purposes of the Democratic Party very well. It reveals Trump to be a timid man. His base does not like that. And truth be told the long existing Democrat local governments of the main sites of anti-US street action are in sympathy with many of the goals of the insurgents. Seattle, Minneapolis, Washington, DC (as a city under Home Rule), Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Richmond, etc. The pattern is clear.
The Democrat pols calculate that they can ride the tigers (virus and revolutionary mobs) ravaging the country and then regain control after they win it all. IMO they are mistaken in that belief.
If they win, the revolutionary tiger will continue to rage and will devour them just as later waves of Jacobins devoured people like Danton and Robespierre in the French Revolution.
And by then the economy will be such a shambles that the people will inevitably turn against the Dems in despair over their poverty and joblessness. pl
