Back in April, I talked about a story that indicated Osama bin Laden was confident that, if he and al-Qaeda were to be successful in assassinating Obama and making Biden the POTUS, the United States would go into a crisis because, according to the now-dead terrorist, Biden is ‘totally unprepared’ to be the president.
Well, now, we seem to have a relatively similar story. The New York Post has a recent story out regarding one interesting person’s thoughts surrounding the November election and the effects of the results.
Noor bin Ladin (whose side of the family has always spelled their last name differently from the terrorist), the niece of Osama bin Laden, warned that another 9/11-type attack could occur if Joe Biden becomes president.
Bin Ladin said: “ISIS proliferated under the Obama/Biden administration, leading them to coming to Europe. Trump has shown that he protects America and us by extension from foreign threats by obliterating terrorists at the root and before they get a chance to strike.”
Yes, as you can tell, Noor is not exactly on the side of radical Islamic terrorism. Matter of fact, it’s just the opposite. While she seemingly does not follow any particular religion, she is very right-wing conservative, a supporter of President Trump (as you can see her above wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat) and a fan of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
The NY Post reports that bin Ladin, though she lives in Switzerland, considers herself “an American at heart”, had a “full-size US flag hung in her childhood room at age 12 and her dream vacation is an RV trip across America.”
She also has conservative views regarding things like Spygate, big tech censorship of conservatives, mask mandates, the historically inaccurate garbage that is the NYT’s 1619 Project and Cuomo’s fatal executive order sending sick people to nursing and retirement homes.
So it’s pretty safe to say that she is a massive supporter of President Trump and while she lives in Switzerland, is extremely patriotic for the United States. It’s pretty sad that the niece of the most hated and notorious terrorist of all time is considerably far more patriotic than most people in D.C.
At any rate, bin Ladin also said to the NY Post: “I have been a supporter of President Trump’s since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015. I have watched from afar and I admire this man’s resolve. He must be re-elected… It’s vital for the future of not only America, but Western civilization as a whole.”
She continued: “You look at all the terrorist attacks that have happened in Europe over the past 19 years. They have completely shaken us to the core… [Radical Islam] has completely infiltrated our society. In the US it’s very worrying that the left has aligned itself completely with the people who share that ideology.”
Indeed, it is very worrying that the Left aligns itself with radical Islamic terrorists, but it’s not exactly surprising. Both share the same goal of destroying the U.S., even if by different means (though considering the past few months of social and civil unrest and violence, those means are becoming more and more similar).
Regarding radical Islamic terrorism as a whole, that is something that is often ignored or forgotten about the Trump administration. ISIS is functionally inoperative in the U.S. The last time we had a relatively major terrorist attack (in which more than 4 people died) on U.S soil was back in 2017, in that Halloween day attack by a radical Islamic terrorist who stole a U-Haul truck and ran people over in New York City. Eight people died in that attack. Since then, the deadliest attack we have had (at the hands of Islamic terrorists, not domestic ones) was in late 2019 when a Saudi national shot and killed three people and injured 8 others at a naval air station, according to thereligionofpeace.com
According to the site, only 18 people total have died in a radical Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil since Trump became president. Compare that to the 116 people who died in a radical Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil during Obama’s tenure and the difference is clear.
“But Freddie, you’re comparing four years of Trump to Obama’s eight years. How is that fair?” Very well. Let’s look at Obama’s first four years in office. Looking at the data on the website from February of 2009 to January 15th, 2012, roughly the first four years of Obama’s first term, we find that 29 people died in a terrorist attack in that time span. This is particularly impressive (not the good kind, obviously) and horrendous because it means that in Obama’s second four years, 87 people were killed in U.S. soil to a radical Islamic terrorist attack.
So which four years would we rather look at, the one where 29 people died or the one were 87 people died? Either way, that is still more than what Trump has seen so far in his own three and a half years (granted, that still could change, but he’s been kicking major terrorist butt this entire time, so ISIS knows not to mess with him, which is the biggest reason Noor is saying what she’s saying).
Trump has practically destroyed ISIS and is a major threat to any and all radical Islamic terrorists. Noor knows this and understands that a Biden victory would mean going back to rampant terrorism in the U.S., likely seeing numbers closer to Obama’s last four years than his first four.
While there is plenty more I could say about Noor and her views, particularly with things such as her criticism of The Squad and Ilhan Omar specifically, I believe the point of this article has been made. A Biden presidency would be utterly disastrous for this country in every possible sense.
The economy would be in shambles, our rights and freedoms would be eroded, our safety compromised by domestic and foreign terrorists and particularly the safety of Trump supporters and all conservatives (which, at this point, basically means everyone who even slightly disagrees with the Leftist hive mind) would be in jeopardy.
Radical Leftists are already calling for our heads, basically, and have made numerous threats against Trump, his supporters and other conservatives (not to mention Rand Paul has already been attacked and Congressional Republicans were shot up in a baseball game by a Bernie supporter whom none on the Left denounced). Could you imagine the state of this country if these demons were in power?
We already see some of it which is why it’s so important to defeat them in every place we can. This means, of course, politically, but also socially and other pillars of power. We must take back our country from these monsters and that means defeating them intellectually, morally and spiritually.
Morality has been eroding in this country for a long time due to secularism. We see, today, people supporting the idea of letting children “change their gender” and undergo life-altering chemical “treatment”. We see people defending the genocide that is abortion. We see people beginning to defend the idea of political violence as a means to an end for the sake of communism. Heck, communism in itself is highly immoral due to what it brings, even if it is advertised as this great thing that everyone can benefit from (except, of course, for its political enemies including opponents, landlords, etc.).
Beating these ideas back and bringing about a Christian revival (which is not something we alone can do, of course, as it depends entirely on God to allow it) are the way in which we can defeat the Left and its horrible, Satanic ideas.
This, of course, means beating them politically and means soundly defeating Joe Biden, who I hope suffers the greatest political defeat in the history of mankind.
Returning to Noor, however, it is interesting that she has turned out to be a great patriot, even if not actually American, and a supporter of the president. Her story is interesting and the NY Post itself writes a good deal about it and goes on to explain what she went through following the 9/11 attacks perpetrated by her uncle.
I wish her well and, returning again to Biden, like I said, I hope he loses badly.

I have long held the belief that one cannot be a Christian and a Democrat at the same time and for very long. Either one is a Christian and momentarily a Democrat, before recognizing that Democrats are fundamentally anti-Christian and will leave the party, or one is a Democrat and calls himself a Christian, but holds Left-wing beliefs and values such as abortion, open borders, homosexuality, etc. and is not a true Christian whatsoever.
Seemingly, though perhaps not totally surprisingly, California megachurch pastor John MacArthur believes the same thing: one cannot be a Christian and support Leftist beliefs and people.
Grace Community Church pastor John MacArthur has been a recent example of a wartime Christian, choosing to fight an authoritarian dictatorship in Los Angeles which stands in clear violation of the Constitution by trying to force MacArthur’s church to remain closed and holding him and the church in contempt and violation of such unconstitutional orders.
The Satanic local government is trying to destroy the church’s ability to spread the gospel and MacArthur has actually decided to stand up to them for such a clear violation of his First Amendment rights.
Recently, MacArthur told the Falkirk Center that President Trump has recently reached out to the pastor and the two held a conversation on the “pillars of faith and their importance with regard to the upcoming election”, according to Fox News.
MacArthur explained: “We love God, we desire to honor Him, and upholding righteousness in a society is what a church is supposed to do. So I said, any real, true believer is going to be on your side in this election because it’s not just an individual, it’s an entire set of policies that Christians cannot, in any way, affirm.”
“We talked a little bit about why – certainly from a Biblical standpoint – Christians could not vote Democratic. Because there’s no way that a Christian can affirm the slaughter of babies, homosexual marriage, or any gross immorality. No way we could stand behind a candidate who’s affirming transgender behavior… these things aren’t even political for us… these things are Biblical.”
I could not agree more with MacArthur here (which is ironic, considering there are plenty of things that I disagree with him about, particularly on matters of eschatology). No true Christian believer could bring themselves to vote for Biden or any other radical Left Democrat.
What the Left believes runs contrary to what God teaches us and commands us to believe and follow. The Left believes in a government which replaces God, basically. Of course, it cannot actually do that, but their allegiance is to government, not to God, and they worship government, not God.
The Left believes in a woman’s “right” to kill her own baby, and they are moving closer and closer to arguing in favor of this even AFTER the baby has been born. Every Christian worth their salt knows that abortion is murder and murder is explicitly PROHIBITED by God, going all the way back to Cain. Murder is explicitly prohibited by the sixth commandment. To be at any capacity in support of abortion, at ANY stage in the pregnancy, is an affront to God and in support of plain, clear murder.
No Christian can, therefore, support abortion because to do so would be the effectual rejecting of God. Man is created in God’s image. Murder is the illegitimate elimination of said image (keep in mind the reason I say “illegitimate” here is because the death penalty is a legitimate elimination of a person, reserved only for the worst kind of criminal).
Homosexuality, transgenderism, and other sexual sins (including straight sex when done outside of marriage) are an abomination to the Lord and are wrong. God created Man and Woman to be together. Man and Man together is an affront to God, as is Woman and Woman. And, of course, this means that there is no “third” option for one’s own gender, no matter what the Satanist heathens might try and argue.
When a political party stands in such direct contradiction to the teachings of the Bible, how can anyone who proclaims to follow the teachings of the Bible then go on to vote for such a party?
Now, one might try and argue that Trump isn’t much better, though they can only argue in terms of personality, not in terms of systems of belief or policy. The ONLY argument Never Trumpers have nowadays is that he is supposedly a “deeply” flawed individual and has severe personal problems.
They claim that Trump is not exactly a good representative of Christ due to his Twitter fights and other supposed character flaws. Okay, but then, are we Christians supposed to wait for someone with a perfect personality, no issues or flaws whatsoever, if we are to vote for someone? Doing so would require us to wait for Christ Himself to run for POTUS, a position FAR beneath Him.
What, then, shall we do without Christ literally running Himself? Abstain from voting and wait until Christ runs? Vote for a party which clearly does not represent our beliefs?
Which is another thing right there: what sense does it make to vote for a party which very clearly does not represent your beliefs over a party or candidate which does?
Some people might try and argue that the Bible doesn’t say that Christians are Republicans or Democrats, which is obvious considering the two parties were created roughly TWO MILLENNIA after Christ, but again, I ask, what sense does it make to vote for a party which does not represent your beliefs over a party which does?
That’s not to say that the GOP is a perfect representative or even that all or even most in the party are such representatives of Christian values (GOP establishment types come to mind as inherently non-representative of Christian values). However, no one can honestly tell me that the Democrat Party better represents Christian values than the Republican Party.
“Oh, well, they support and believe in charity!” the ignoramus will argue. No, they don’t. Their celebrities will virtue signal because being depicted as charitable is good for PR. Their politicians will often not donate a lot of their income to charity (and considering Trump donates 100% of his Presidential income to charity, he’s hard to beat on that front) and argue that charity is communism and vice versa, when it is not.
Charity is the willful giving of your things to another who needs it more. Communism is the state forcing you to give up your things (like land, other possessions, and rights) supposedly for “the greater, communal good”, which at the end of the day is simply the government.
So, if the Democrat Party stands in such clear contradiction to the values taught to us by Christ, what reason does any true believer have to vote for a Democrat over a Republican (provided the Republican is a better representative of Christian beliefs)?
“Oh, but God is loving and Trump is hateful, just look at the wall he’s trying to build to separate us with our fellow humans south of the border,” the ignoramus will continue. Yes, God is loving, but He is also just. When one breaks the law, that person must be punished. Illegal immigrants break the law; they must be punished and their actions deterred. God doesn’t let people get away with breaking the law, even Man’s law, provided Man’s laws do not contradict God’s Law.
Also, Trump is not hateful. That he wants to prioritize American citizens is not an act of hate. That he wants to see justice for people who have been negatively affected by illegals – people who shouldn’t even be here and have NO RIGHT to be here – is not a sign of hatred from Trump. Does Trump love people like God does? No, because God’s love is agape love, meaning “the highest form of love and charity”, which is a form of love inaccessible to mankind, at least for one another. We have philia love, brotherly love, and filikos love, or neighborly love, but not agape love because that is a love relationship between God and man.
So Trump fundamentally cannot love people like God does, but his actions, particularly in his decision to run for President of the United States when he is just about the last person who needed to do that, shows that he loves America and Americans.
He doesn’t hate the immigrants that obey the law (for crying out loud, HE’S MARRIED TO AN IMMIGRANT) and I doubt he outright hates the illegals who come here, just hates that they break the law to come here and hates the criminal actions that they typically commit.
For anyone to argue that Trump, even despite his personal flaws (which he obviously has, considering he’s human, but I believe they have been unfairly accentuated by the media), is in any way a worse representative for those with Christian beliefs than Joe Biden or anyone on the Left is ridiculous and a complete lie.
God doesn’t require that we be perfect, and that includes Trump. I’ve made this point in the past, but it bears repeating: No one in the Bible, apart from God and Jesus (who are the same essential being in different persons), is perfect.
I’ve heard people wishing that we had a leader like David, but they forget that David committed adultery and basically murder by sending his loyal soldier to die in battle so he could screw his wife.
God uses imperfect people for His plan. Abraham, the father of the Jewish faith, was impatient and committed adultery before he was given his promised son. Moses killed an Egyptian guard and was running from the law for forty years before his encounter with God. Jacob was a liar and a ritualistic sinner before he was given the name Israel by God Himself (and was given that name after he literally wrestled with God). Sampson succumbed to sexual immorality but he was still redeemed by God in the end.
Trump has flaws, of course, but for any Christian to believe such flaws disqualify him from being president or earning our vote is ludicrous. For a Christian to support Biden or abstain from voting (which only helps Biden and the Democrats) is to run contrary to his or her own professed belief.
Like John MacArthur said, any real, true believer and follower of Christ will see the two options presented to us this electoral season and come to the conclusion that, despite whatever flaws Trump has, Joe Biden represents and carries with him beliefs that not only run contrary to Christianity, but are outright damaging to it (and no, it doesn’t matter one bit that he is a self-professed Catholic. Profession of faith is not the same as possession of faith).
Keep in mind, MacArthur is currently fighting DEMOCRATS who say that he is not allowed to open his church and share the gospel with his congregation and are actively seeking to punish him for wanting to do so. Clearly, given the chance, Democrats will leap at the opportunity to destroy our constitutionally protected rights of freedom of religion.
Once last time, I ask: what sense does it make for any true Christian to vote for a party which does not represent his or her Christian values and actively works to undermine them?

2020, as I have said in the past, has been a very rough year for everyone. For a time, tens of millions of people lost their jobs or they were furloughed and many small businesses went under, with few being likely to recover, while mega corporations have only grown as a result. However, the economy is making a comeback, and perhaps the biggest indicator of this, at least for the foreseeable future, is the stock market.
The markets usually work as a foretelling of the future, based on what people in the markets think will happen soon. It’s not an exact science, of course, but the big dips in the market in the earliest months of the year foretold the economic trouble we would face soon after, but now, the markets are back, with some hitting new record highs and mostly or completely wiping out the losses throughout the pandemic.
An economic recovery certainly helps Trump, much to the dismay of the Left who were salivating at the idea of a ruined economy for a chance to get Biden (or Harris) elected and finally bring America down. We are seeing an economic recovery right now, even as things still aren’t quite to how good they were pre-Chinese coronavirus, and this sort of recovery spells good news for a Trump re-election.
According to The Socioeconomics Institute, Trump has an 87% chance to win re-election if the market is above 28,052 on Election Day (Nov. 3rd). For the record, before the pandemic hit, the Dow Jones was at 29,500 and bottomed out at 18,591 on March 23rd.
Now, while a lot can happen in between now and November 3rd, as I have been saying all along, the current economic future looks bright, provided there are no major surprises that blindside us. Even the momentarily terrifying reality of two hurricanes hitting the states at the Gulf of Mexico has sort of dwindled as the two super storms have weakened over time.
But provided that nothing majorly bad occurs, Trump is in good position to win, according to the model. As it stands, the Dow Jones is hovering around 28,600, roughly a thousand points shy of the prior record which is fairly reachable at this point.
More specifically, the Institute notes that if the Dow Jones is anywhere over 23,377, Trump has at the very least a mild chance of winning re-election, while if the Dow is between 22,208 and 23,377, Biden has a mild chance of winning. Obviously, anything below 22,208 and Biden as a strong chance of winning.
The reasoning behind the Institute’s model is due to them studying all presidential races where an incumbent was running for re-election and in their research, they found that “the strongest correlation with incumbents’ margins of victory or defeat” was the net change in the market for the three years leading up to the election.
The last three years have been fairly strange, at least with this year in comparison to the last two. Ever since Trump became President, this country saw nothing but economic success. Following Trump’s election, the Dow Jones went up 2,000 points from election day to inauguration day. The market was excited for a Trump presidency. Time and time again, I noted how the economy was absolutely booming, with the unemployment rate hitting record low after record low, in general and for minorities.
We had such a roaring economy that during the Democrat primaries, NO ONE was talking about the economy. Despite it usually being at the top of people’s concerns heading into an election, not one Democrat dared to talk much about the economy because they KNEW they couldn’t fool everyone into believing it wasn’t real. Often times, their only, and flimsy, argument was that it was somehow “Obama’s” economy, even after three years of a Trump presidency.
It really speaks to their poor, phony character that the Left would blame Obama’s predecessor for all of his economic failures and steal the credit that rightfully belongs to his successor for a booming economy. The Obama economy was flat and stagnant, which is rather impressive for the fact that he inherited a recession and did NOTHING to make it better. And ever since Trump came along and made things better, they somehow got it into their minds that the credit belongs to the guy who had EIGHT YEARS to make it better and didn’t. That the guy who spent less than a year rebuilding the economy had nothing to do with it, even as it was happening under his watch, even as they had a guy in his same position for eight years who accomplished absolutely nothing.
Then, once the pandemic hit and local and state governments decided to completely shut things down, which naturally led to an economic downturn, only THEN did Democrats, specifically Joe Biden, start to talk about the economy and lie about how Obama and Biden rebuilt the economy after their 2008 win and Trump destroyed it.
Now that the economy is back strong, the Democrats are once again without a message, other than “Orange Man Bad”.
Now, all they have is “Trump is a racist” while citing no evidence and while having the most racist ticket in I don’t know how long. Seriously, for the first time in roughly a century, the Democrats are running a segregationist and a slave owner as their presidential and vice presidential candidates.
Now, all they have is “Trump is a sexist” while citing no evidence and while having a guy who is well-documented in sexually harassing women and who picked his VP largely because she is a woman.
Now, all they have is “Trump is evil” while citing no evidence and while running the most pro-death ticket in political history. And I’m not just talking about abortion here, though they are extreme proponents of it. I’m also talking about being anti-police (rather ironic, considering Harris’ former professional position) and supporting the violent riots (calling out the violence in general does not tell me Biden is against this. It’d be like watching a terrorist attack and denouncing the violence itself as opposed to those who perpetrated it, though they have done this plenty in the past, so I suppose there is precedence for this disgusting behavior).
The economy is making a great comeback following the closures, which is why the Left has turned back to reporting largely about the virus in an effort to scare people into locking things down again. They report “new cases” as though they are equal to “new deaths”, which isn’t at all the case (pun intended).
If nothing else, the economy would carry Trump into 2020. A damaged economy means a damaged Trump heading into the election while a strong economy means a strong Trump. We are still not quite where we were pre-pandemic in terms of economic strength, but we are getting there. This is a nightmare for Democrats and it showed throughout the DNC and the RNC.
I only pray to God that the economy will continue getting better and exceed where it was pre-pandemic and that Trump utterly trounces Joe Biden and the Democrats, giving them a defeat they haven’t seen since 1984.

A few days ago, I noted that President Trump’s job approval jumped up as the DNC went on last week, in large part due to the fact that the DNC was extremely boring at best and filled with deranged lunatics hellbent on destroying this nation and making little effort to hide that at worst. Now that the lunatic Leftists have had their convention of horror, it’s time for Republicans to have their convention and there are noticeable differences between the two conventions.
While the DNC focused on how Trump was a “threat” to Democracy and how everything is awful and it’s white capitalist men’s fault, the RNC is focusing on hope, redemption and American exceptionalism to carry us through a pandemic and any economic problems it has caused (and that we are likely past the worst of it).
The RNC featured a number of guest speakers, all of whom talked about overwhelmingly positive things, such as the historic pardoning of Jon Ponder, and the powerful speeches given by pro-life advocates speaking the truth about the horrors of abortion (FYI: I, personally, did not know that abortion has a smell. I just feel sorry for Abby Johnson, who gave us that fact, because the sense most connected to our memory is our sense of smell, so she likely remembers very well what an abortion smells like).
Overall, the RNC stands in stark contrast to the DNC, which even some in the fake news media had to acknowledge the fact that (at least the first night) was very good and effective. This has shown in the polls, as a recent Zogby poll shows Trump’s approval standing at 52%, the highest in the poll’s record.
What’s more, Trump enjoys pretty decent support from African Americans (36%), Hispanics (37%) and Asians (35%), all of whom usually vote for Democrats. Trump also enjoys pretty decent numbers with Independent voters, with 44%.
Perhaps what is most surprising, however, is that 23% of DEMOCRATS also approve of Donald Trump in the recent survey.
The Washington Examiner reports: “Pollsters have been somewhat at a loss to explain the rise of Trump’s approval ratings, considering that there has been little positive news to help his standings other than the peace deal he helped negotiate between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.”
Well, then, allow me to explain to the pollsters roughly what is likely driving Trump’s approval up: THE RIOTS, NUMBNUTS!
Even the dumbest man on cable news, Don Lemon, recently said: “The rioting has to stop… it’s showing up in the polling, it’s showing up in focus groups.”
To which I have a couple of things to say.
First, how interesting that Lemon decided to actually call them “riots” here when for the past few months, as they were happening, the media was insistent on calling them “peaceful protests”. Of course, there never was anything peaceful about them, as they all lead to violence, arson, vandalism, assault and a slew of murders, but the media ignored all of them, even as they were showing BURNING BUILDINGS and were simply calling them “peaceful protests”. Why? Because they somehow thought that the riots would HELP them beat Trump.
Their line of thinking probably went something like this: The people rioting shows Trump and Republicans to be weak leaders, so people will want to vote them out. The problem here is that the riots were EXCLUSIVELY happening in DEMOCRAT-RUN cities, counties and states. The Democrats in charge, because in their infinite wisdom they thought the riots were helping them against Trump, were doing nothing to quell the riots until they got a little too close to home, literally.
The Democrats that were not in charge of those places (namely, congresspeople) were either fully supporting and endorsing the violence or merely tolerating it at best. This included Joe Biden, who supports defunding the police (no, there is no difference between defunding and “redirecting” if the lack of funds render the police inoperable).
The media, like I pointed out, were running cover for the riots because they also thought they were helping the Democrats. They covered the riots as “peaceful protests” and omitted certain stories or facts which would undermine their agenda.
And Leftist celebrities, the people who are least qualified to talk about how Americans think, believe that America thinks like them, worships them, and believe that whatever they say is gospel, so they also support the riots, believing them to be for a good cause, even if they are violent. They will defend the actions of Jacob Blake, who did everything wrong in the video shown (not caring about being tased is an indication of being high on drugs and going to your car, opening the door and reaching in for something when you were not asked to do anything of the sort is BOUND to get you shot, so there is ZERO that the Left can say that makes Jacob Blake any sort of victim here).
The Left supports the riots, until they come to the oh, so shocking realization that it’s not exactly helping them. It’d perhaps be one thing if the riots were happening and they secretly supported (or even funded) them, but openly disagreed and called for law and order, but they are letting Trump be the law and order guy here and that’s what people want.
Now that the riots are not politically expedient, Lemon has no qualms about calling them riots and wants them to stop because they’re helping Trump.
Which brings me to the second thing I want to say about this: notice that the ONLY reason they want the riots to stop is because of politics.
The Left doesn’t care that businesses are being destroyed, that families are being brought to financial ruin, that people are being assaulted and, in many cases, killed. No, none of that ever mattered to the Left, else they would’ve demanded the riots stop the minute the first one occurred.
The ONLY reason they want the riots to end is because they are helping Trump in the polls. Remember this the next time a Democrat insists that they are the party of “love” and “tolerance” and that they are, in any way, the good guys.
I’ve made this point in the past, but it bears repeating: the Left is the physical manifestation of the kind of people described in Isaiah 5:20: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter with sweet and sweet with bitter.”
They call themselves good when they are, in fact, evil. Only evil people could look at the horrors of riots and think they are good if they help them and bad if they don’t. Only evil people could look at the genocide that is abortion, the holocaust that it is, and consider it a “woman’s right” and “freedom.” Only evil people could look at children being dragged to drag queen story hour and think that it’s a good thing. Only evil people could think that forcing children to take life-altering puberty blockers because the children momentarily feel like they are a different gender (or because one of their parents wants them to be a different gender) is a good thing.
This was all very much demonstrated in how they covered the death of George Floyd in contrast to the death of Secoriea Turner and Cannon Hinnant. The death of George Floyd was politically expedient to the Left, so it’s covered as a national tragedy. The deaths of Turner and Hinnant undermined their agenda, so they were largely ignored or restructured as an argument against gun ownership.
The American people see all of this bullcrap coming from the Left and, understandably, come to see Trump in a better light. Trump’s supporters aren’t the ones burning down businesses. Trump’s supporters aren’t the ones assaulting cops. Trump’s supporters aren’t the ones murdering people. Trump’s supporters aren’t the ones terrorizing those who do not raise their fists to show “solidarity” with the radical Left (btw, I’m beginning to see that raised fist as no different to the Nazi salute, and that’s how it should be treated).
It’s radical Leftists who are doing all of these things and the vast majority of people do not want this. Many who are life-long Democrat liberals are reportedly planning to vote for Trump because of all of this. They are pushing normal people to the right and making their camp smaller and smaller.
The only reason the Democrat base is as rabid and insane as it is is not because radical Leftist communism is now mainstream for many people, but because more moderate people have left the Democrat party because they felt the Democrat party has left them.
If you have a room of a hundred people and ten of them are communists, if the 90 other people leave that room, that doesn’t make communism the mainstream thought (at least, outside of that room).
Trump is enjoying bumps in approval because the Left is unwittingly handing him the election by making themselves far too crazy and dangerous to be allowed anywhere near the levels of power that they desire.
While there is still a good amount of time left before the election takes place, and plenty can happen in that time interval, if the economy recovers and the Left continues to show how insane they are, provided their mail-in voting scheme doesn’t work to the extent they want it to, I don’t see how Biden beats Trump at any capacity.
I wouldn’t even be surprised if states like Wisconsin, Minnesota and maybe even New York end up going to Trump.

With the Democrat National Convention underway, the Left is trying its best to hype up Biden and prop him up as the clear answer to Republican President Donald Trump. However, despite this, former President Barack Obama is less than enthused about Biden’s run against Trump.
Now, while I have already talked about how Trump’s real opposition isn’t Biden but mail-in voter fraud, the fact remains that Biden still needs to campaign, to one extent or another, even if the farthest he goes is his front porch. He still has to give interviews and talk to people and do the things most regular presidential nominees have to do, even in this unique election.
In this campaigning, Obama points out that one shouldn’t “underestimate Joe’s ability to f**k things up,” reported a recent Politico article which was surprisingly harsh towards Joe Biden at points.
Throughout this Politico article, the general theme seems to be that Joe Biden felt he didn’t get much, if any, respect from Obama or those around him, not too dissimilar to Fredo Corleone, the aloof and clearly mentally-challenged older brother of Michael Corleone, the smart and tactful son of Vito who ended up succeeding him as the titular Godfather of his mafia family.
I imagine the following scene from The Godfather Part II is something Joe can relate to:
Fredo: “I’m your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over!”
Michael: “That’s the way Pop wanted it.”
Fredo: “It ain’t the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I’m smart! Not like everybody says… like dumb… I’m smart and I want respect!”
Apart from the sentiment that Joe is not a very intelligent fellow, I think he can relate to Fredo in that he, too, was basically “stepped over.” Fredo was passed over as Don of the family, following the death of Sonny and Vito, making Michael the head of the Corleone family, despite being younger than Fredo. Similarly, Joe was passed over as the “heir” of the Obama administration’s legacy, with the Democrats choosing Hillary Clinton, who was at least relatively smarter and had the same Ivy League education and background that many Leftist elitists favor.
In fact, that sentiment of being passed over as Obama’s heir was a major topic in the Politico article as well:
“… behind all the BFF bonhomie is a much more complicated story – one fueled by the misgivings the 44th president had about the would-be 46th, the deep hurt still felt among Biden’s allies over how Obama embraced Hillary Clinton as his successor, and a powerful sense of pride that is driving Biden to prove that the former president and many of his aides underestimated the very real strengths of his partner,” according to Politico.
If this doesn’t scream “Fredo Corleone” to you, I don’t know what does.
Leon Panetta, Obama’s secretary of Defense, recalled: “[Biden] was loyal, I think, to Obama in every way in terms of defending and standing by him, even probably when he disagreed with what Obama was doing. To some extent, [Biden] oftentimes felt that that loyalty was not being rewarded.”
The Politico article then went on to point out the way in which “Young White House aides frequently mocked Biden’s gaffes and lack of discipline in comparison to the almost clerical Obama. They would chortle at how Biden, like an elderly uncle at Thanksgiving, would launch into extended monologues that everyone had heard before.”
Even the infamous Ben Rhodes, a key part of the Iran nuclear deal, wrote in his memoir that “in the Situation Room, Biden could be something of an unguided missile.”
A particularly bad quote came from Obama himself, apart from his “don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f**k things up” quote, where he reportedly told one 2020 Democrat candidate, speaking of the then-current Democrat electorate in Iowa, “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”
Whether he meant the ability to win or to run things smoothly or what, I don’t know, but that hardly matters. He clearly doesn’t have much, if any, confidence in Joe Biden and has unenthusiastically supported Biden because he just kinda has to.
This was pointed out in the Politico article:
“But even in victory, Biden and his aides often act like they have something to prove to the Obama team that doubted them. Some Biden allies noted that Obama’s endorsement of Biden, when it finally arrived, lacked the effusiveness of his endorsement of Clinton. ‘I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office,’ he said of Clinton in his video message in 2016. Four years later, in his endorsement video for Biden, he said: ‘I believe Joe has all of the qualities we need in a president right now… and I know he will surround himself with good people.’”
Obama and the Left have run with the narrative that Trump is dividing the country (completely ignoring that THEY are the ones who have been dividing the country with identity politics since HE was president), so it’s not surprising that he would say that Biden has “the qualities we need in a president right now.” Biden is known in the Swamp as being a bit more willing to cooperate with other people, even Republicans, which contrasted with Obama’s egotistical and narcissistic approach to things, believing he knew more than everyone else in whatever room he occupied combined.
That’s not to say Biden would make for a good president at all, of course – he’d be a train wreck and would not actually be in charge, which is why Obama mentioned that second part of Biden surrounding himself with “good people.”
Obama has no trust in Biden’s ability to do much of anything, especially doing things right, and knows perfectly well that if Joe were to “win” (if you read my previous article talking about cheat-by-mail, you know why I put that word in quotation marks), Joe would, at best, be the puppet with the official title of POTUS but someone else, like Kamala, would be the one actually running things and at worst, he would be forced to resign almost immediately to let Kamala be POTUS.
These are things we all knew, and even suspected that Obama saw it the same way, but it’s particularly interesting to see this from POLITICO of all sources. This, suffice to say, does not exactly hype people up to the idea of a Biden presidency. For Politico’s readers, this does not get them excited to vote for Biden, either by mail or by showing up to the polls.
While at some points the article tries to be more positive towards Biden, things like pointing out that Biden repeated the third grade, got all Cs and Ds in his first three semesters in college except for As in P.E., a course in which you would have to royally screw up to get anything less than a C, a B in “Great English Writers”, where he plagiarized in his paper, and an F in ROTC, as well as having graduated 76th out of 85 students at Syracuse Law School definitely do not help paint a pretty or excitable picture of Joe Biden, something he desperately needs.
I find it rather surprising that Politico would publish something like this, knowing full well that these people are largely Democrats. You would think they’d do whatever they could to help Biden win, especially as he is a candidate who NEEDS to be helped by those around him and those who support him.
Maybe they don’t exactly expect Biden to win, after all. Either that or they are so in bed with the Obama camp of the Democrat Party that they would rather try and avoid a disastrous campaign and Biden “presidency” which could tarnish whatever is left of the Obama legacy (which, granted, Biden or whomever controls his strings would get us back into the Paris climate deal and the Iran nuke deal and try to restore basically everything about Obama’s legacy, while trying to destroy Trump’s expansive legacy).
I don’t know the precise reason as to why the people at Politico chose to publish this, though I suppose we are still far enough away from the election that it would not really matter if this was published at all, and the sentiments expressed in the Politico article are sentiments found just about throughout the entirety of the Democrat Party anyway, and they aren’t doing a great job in hiding those sentiments.
At any rate, whatever the reason, I will enjoy the fact that they did and will call back to this whenever the opportunity strikes. Thanks for the ammo, Politico.

The 2020 presidential election easily stands to be the most unique one in modern election history, if not history altogether, for a variety of reasons.
It’s very possible that the Left might outright steal the election through their cheat-by-mail system, focusing on swing states that Trump won in 2016 to ensure he does not get to 270 (assuming he wins all the other states he did in 2016 but does not pick up other swing or blue-purple states) and make it so that they either have Joe Biden “win” or make it contested enough to the point there is no clear winner until January 20th, when the new Congress would have to select the President of the United States and his/her Vice President.
This very easily could lead to a Constitutional crisis, as the Democrats (provided they at least retain the House) could pressure the Republicans (provided the GOP keeps the Senate) into either voting for Joe Biden to win (the likelier option, in my opinion) or have the Speaker of the House (Pelosi) be voted President of the United States.
Of course, Trump could try and counter this by suing in states where no clear winner is announced (ala 2000 election) and have it make it to the Supreme Court, but considering John Roberts HATES Trump, I wouldn’t expect things to go Trump’s way here.
No matter what ends up happening – whether the Democrats successfully cheat by mail to have a bunch of illegitimate ballots be counted towards Biden and allowing him to win, or successfully sabotaging the process enough that some states simply do not have an announced winner by January 20th at noon (when the current President’s term ends), leading to Congress to have to sort it out and either making Biden or Pelosi (or someone else) POTUS, or having the Supreme Court deciding this election (and almost certainly having Biden win) – this election, if the Democrats get their way, could mark the end of our Constitutional Republic and mark the beginning of a Banana Republic, not too dissimilar to Russia or Venezuela.
This is why I say that Trump isn’t running against Biden or Harris, but against corruption and election interference through an easily-rigged system (that the Democrats ironically claim Trump is trying to rig and yet do nothing to try and ensure the safety of the election, not that projecting what communists do onto their political opponents is anything new).
To answer the first question posited in the title, the reason the Democrats are pushing for mail-in voting is simple: it is their easiest shot to win and forever remain in power. If they are successful in this election, they can easily replicate it in future elections, pandemic or not, with the media reporting on something like: “since the 2020 election, more and more Americans are opting to simply vote by mail, as opposed to spending hours at crowded polling stations” or some other b.s. like that.
The Left wants power and as much of it as they can get, for as long as they can possibly have it, and the cheat-by-mail system gives them the best opportunity they possibly could have to do exactly that.
But that’s just the first question. What about the second? Why are they pushing conspiracy theories that Trump is trying to rig the election through things like taking away mail boxes or locking them up?
There are a number of reasons for this. For one, they want to push back on the idea that THEY are the ones trying to cheat, so they make the entire conversation about how their opposition is actually the one that is trying to cheat.
The Left tried to cheat in the 2016 election with foreign interference and Obama’s DOJ screwing over Trump, but when they failed, they switched to claiming Trump was the one who cheated and launched an “investigation” into it which wouldn’t turn up anything (since Trump didn’t cheat) but steered the conversation away from their own cheating and towards the claims that Trump cheated.
The Mueller investigation’s only purpose was to cover up for the Left’s cheating in 2016. The Left’s accusations today are to cover up for the Left’s cheating in 2020.
If all the media reports is that Trump was trying to cheat, there is little room in the discussion about how the Left actually cheated, so they get away with it.
But these conspiracy theories also give the Left insurance in their worst-case scenario: a Trump re-election.
If the Left once again is unsuccessful in their cheating (and plenty does still have to go right for them, such as these riots not being bad enough to get even long-time Democrat voters to vote for Trump) and Trump wins again, they can claim that he only did it by voter suppression regarding mail-in ballots.
The simple fact is that the USPS absolutely CANNOT handle the amount of electoral ballots the Democrats want to send out to make sure Biden wins (assuming this is their Plan A). CBS News, roughly a month ago, ran an experiment by sending out 100 fake ballots in Philadelphia one day, and a few days later, sending out 100 more.
According to CBS News: “A week after initial ballots were sent, most ballots appeared to be missing from the P.O. box,” which they had set up for the experiment.
The investigative journalist CBS News used in this experiment had gone to the post office and asked for the ballots, which the post office had misplaced, and he only got them back once he got a manager and explained the situation.
Another problem arose in the form of missorted mail, as alongside the ballots, the CBS journalist also mistakenly received a birthday card meant for someone else.
Regarding the actual “votes”, CBS News reported: “Out of the initial batch mailed a week earlier, 97 out of 100 votes had arrived. Three simulated persons, or 3% of voters, were effectively disenfranchised by mail by giving their ballots a week to arrive. In a close election, 3% could be pivotal.”
So the Philadelphia post office mismanaged three “votes” out of just 100 for a meaningless primary election. Do you think they’d do much better with millions of votes for the presidential election?
This mismanagement of ballots is what the Democrats would count on if they lose in 2020.
I imagine their goal is to have as many fake ballots go out to count for Biden, enough to counter the people who will vote for Trump (including the, likely, many people who are disgusted with the modern Democrat Party in allowing and encouraging violence in our streets), but in the worst-case scenario, they have “insurance” ready to try and get Trump out of office.
Of course, if Trump wins, this would just be Russia 2.0 with the same results: Trump remains in office (assuming the Democrats don’t control Congress with enough votes to remove Trump or coerce enough spineless Republicans to vote to remove him). However, it would further divide this nation and possibly incite even more violence. After all, “Trump just stole ANOTHER election!” is what the media and Democrats will screech to the ends of the Earth.
The Left will do whatever they can to get into and stay in power. They will lie, cheat, and steal, delegitimizing our entire electoral process and plunging us into chaos. Your life doesn’t matter. My life doesn’t matter. No one’s life matters other than the ones who are at the top, and even then, only the useful ones.
The idea of destroying elections altogether is extremely appealing to the Left and the only way to do it is by delegitimizing them and making them appear like they can be easily compromised by “fascists”.
Democracy is dangerous to Democrats’ ability to be in power, so if they can get rid of it, or at least control who gets to win (again, like Russia or Venezuela, having something that, on the surface, appears to be democracy but in reality, it is not), they don’t have to worry about anything ever again, justice and freedom be damned.
Truly, the way to counter this blatant cheating is for enough people in swing states that went to Trump in 2016 and those which did not go to Trump in 2016 (and maybe a few others, like Minnesota), to vote for Trump and make the electoral vote clearly go to Trump, that he gets to 270 decisively.
2020 has been a year of darkness so far, but light shines brightest in the dark. Democrats’ draconian, economy-killing policies, as well as their encouragement of the violent riots which have claimed the lives of many and cost cities and states billions in damages, has opened a lot of people’s eyes. People who previously had no real desire to vote for Trump, or anyone for that matter, coming to the realization that the current Democrat Party is crazy and dangerous, so they have to vote for Trump to ensure those crazy people do not get to rule over us.
People who look at what’s going on, recognizing this is awful, and seeing just who is either tolerating it at best and encouraging it at worst, and knowing that such apathetic-at-best and evil-at-worst people cannot be allowed to have power in this country and are turning towards a guy whom they may not necessarily like or even agree with at all, but know that he is the infinitely better option.
It definitely doesn’t help the Democrats that 62% of voters say that the growing level of violence is important to their vote in this election, according to a recent Rasmussen survey.
The Left absolutely cannot be allowed to win this election, which they will do their darndest to try and steal. I only pray that they will fail in this endeavor as they failed in 2016.

There are a little over 80 days left until the election, but the Left is all but convinced that Trump is finished. I have already mentioned this sentiment from the Left a number of times in the past, and this sentiment largely comes from the numerous fake news polls that the fake news media can manipulate to claim that Biden is a lock for winning the presidency.
However, there is one aspect that the fake news media tries to avoid like the plague: swing voters. And the reason for this is simple: according to Zogby, swing voters favor Trump.
And not by a little, either. They prefer Trump by a MASSIVE margin.
Zogby Analytics writes: “What’s keeping things close is Trump’s domination of swing voters. A good portion of these voters live in large cities, are aged 30-49, and say their finances are better off than they were four years ago.”
“In order for Trump to get back to his winning ways he will need to maintain a big lead among swing voters and he must also find a way to win back women, suburban voters and Independents from Biden’s clutches.”
Zogby’s poll shows the following in terms of Trump’s pull with swing voters:
Zogby polled likely voters that were designated swing voters in the following four states: Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
In each and every one of these, Trump gets the support of at least 60% of swing voters.
In Florida, 68% of swing voters favor Trump over Biden (23%). In North Carolina, it’s not much better for the Democrat, as swing voters prefer Trump 63% to Biden’s 20%. In Ohio is where Trump gets the least support, but still at 60% compared to Biden’s 21% and in Pennsylvania is where there is the biggest gap in support, with Trump pulling 73% of swing voters and Biden only pulling 18%.
Like I said, the swing voters aren’t pulling towards Trump by a little, but by a massive margin.
While the poll itself did find Biden to be ahead of Trump in North Carolina (44%-40%, respectively), that is still rather close (closer than other polls have shown in the past) and there is a virtual tie in the other three states that were polled.
In Florida, Trump and Biden are in a statistical tie of 43%. In Ohio, Biden is ahead by two points (43%-41%) and in Pennsylvania, Biden is ahead by one point (44-43).
Each of these three is within the poll’s margin of error.
It definitely doesn’t help Joe Biden that the Left is showing everyone exactly who they are. In their calls to defund the police, the Left is fighting an uphill battle, not only in terms of legality but also in terms of polls. Survey after survey showed that not even black people support the idea of defunding and abolishing the police (and it also doesn’t help that Biden keeps making racist statements like suggesting someone isn’t black if they are on the fence about who to vote for or the idea that Latinos are more diverse in terms of political thought than black people… and then doubling down on it).
What’s more, a recent Rasmussen survey finds that most “likely U.S. voters” see these so-called “peaceful protests” as primarily “criminal in nature,” with 70% of minority voters (non-black) saying that the violence is largely criminal, 66% of all Americans opposing reducing police budgets, 61% believing violent crime will go up in communities that “defund the police” and even among young voters, 49% of them think the violence is “primarily criminal.”
The Left showing the world who they are is hurting them, which is at least part of the reason why they are having Biden appear to be more moderate and not in support of these riots, even as he has never indicated he’s outright against them and has never condemned them. He has hinted at not really liking it, but he has, at the least, appeared like a wet noodle in the face of condemning these things.
Biden cannot appear to be the moderate, law-and-order candidate when he isn’t standing up to the criminal violence that everyone is seeing. It doesn’t help either that clowns like Portland and Seattle’s mayors downplayed the violence heavily, alongside the fake news media (which isn’t exactly very popular either).
Couple this with the legitimate concern that Biden is not mentally capable of being president, and it’s hard to really see that Biden is at all guaranteed to beat Trump.
While these past few months haven’t exactly been great for Trump, I am not at all convinced, especially as we are still three months out from the election, that it’s all over for Trump. The events that will affect the results of the election have not yet happened.
Either way, Biden isn’t exactly Trump’s biggest threat in this election. It’s voter fraud, be it via mail-in ballots, perhaps the easiest way to cheat anyone could conceive, or other means, like when the Democrats mysteriously “found” extra ballots that all just-so-happened to help get Democrats elected in races that should’ve been called for Republicans (and this was one of the biggest reasons for the House being flipped blue in the midterms).
At any rate, let no one convince you that this is in any way over. The fake news media has always been liars, so why believe anything they say now?
“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
I’ve already noted, time and time again, that the Left has convinced itself that there is no possible way that Trump wins in November. This was echoed in 2016, when they were really wrong, and I don’t expect it to be different this year.
The Left relies far too heavily on polls that they can manipulate and rig (and often do exactly that) and determine the likely results of the election from that alone. They look at national and state polls, particularly battleground state polls, and convince themselves that Trump is toast and there is little, if anything, he can do to save himself.
I’ve already expressed why this is utter malarkey time and time again, whether you are talking about the 2016 election or the 2020 one, but one writer for Spectator USA (not to be confused with the American Spectator) is not at all convinced that Biden will defeat Trump.
The title of his piece is: “Get ready for Trump’s second term,” and the subhead reads: “Much depends on whose hands control each House of Congress.”
So this writer, named Leonard Toboroff, is convinced of the exact opposite of what the Left is convinced about: Trump is going to win re-election.
He begins by noting who exactly Trump’s opponent is: “President Trump’s adversaries are running Joe Biden, a fallback Beltway lifer who is credibly accused of selling his office, leaking false intel about Gen. Flynn to the Washington Post and handsiness with female political allies. Oh, and it appears that a prosecutor in Ukraine is digging into the potential criminal liability of the one or more persons who gorged on Burisma’s trove of US taxpayer funds. Joe’s son Hunter is named, and so Joe, in a context not yet fully disclosed.”
Now, the fake news media will never pay attention to the graveyard that is Biden’s closet, but informed voters will take note of the many illegal dealings of Joe Biden, as well as his questionable character and record of failure as Senator and Vice President.
However, the election will be about far more than Joe Biden’s past. Toboroff notes that if there is a criminal investigation in Ukraine, nothing much will come of it, pending a potential Joe Biden plea of cognitive impairment that will allow him to walk (though, if such a plea is made before the election, that would be rather devastating to his campaign because it’s one thing to note he is mentally impaired, but it’s another thing entirely for him to admit it to a court – not that I actually expect anything to come out of Biden’s dealings with Burisma).
But Toboroff eventually begins talking more specifically about Trump and brings some much-needed logic to illogical fake news polls. He writes: “How is it possible for Trump to have 54 percent approval on the economy and 70 percent disapproval on the virus – and in the same poll? Nor would 300,000 people have donated a total of $20 million in a single virtual fundraiser by Trump if they believed the near-unanimous propaganda that he’s certain to lose in November. Nor would the ‘peaceful’ (Joe’s word) burning down of a courthouse in Portland, Oregon, cheered on by its mayor, edge Trump into a two- or three-point snap lead over Joe in a solid blue bastion.”
And he’s right about this. It makes no sense for so many people to be willing to donate to Trump if everyone and their grandmother believes it’s a lost cause. You don’t donate to a candidate you think will lose just because you might be trying to make a point or because you believe in their agenda or whatever else. You donate because you expect them to win and believe they will win.
The Saudis didn’t donate to the Clinton Foundation as much as they did because they expected Hillary to lose. They believed she would win, and when she didn’t, the Foundation saw a sharp decline in donations. The Saudis (and others) were trying to buy access.
But with Trump, regular people are donating their money and it makes no sense if they expected him to lose, especially in economic times such as these, when many people’s jobs have either been furloughed or eliminated completely.
People do not believe the fake news polls that claim Trump is toast. These polls were claiming the same thing LAST SUMMER, back when even the people RUNNING the polls didn’t really believe the polls and wholeheartedly expected Trump to sweep through reelection. These polls were claiming the same thing in 2016 as well, even up to election day itself, when some people had Clinton’s chances of election to be over 98%!
The fake news polls can claim whatever they want – reality will show something far different.
At any rate, Toboroff continued, noting the sort of approval ratings he is getting from Rasmussen, which is at around 48% and “trending up.”
“Translated logically, this gives Trump a wide lead in all battleground states that would translate into a bit more than 300 Electoral College votes. Let’s take this as grounds for examining what a second Trump term would lead us to expect.”
Toboroff notes that a lot will depend on which party gets control of both chambers of Congress. Like Lincoln, he writes, Trump “faces a House divided.” But he expects Trump and Republicans to win back the House, while also keeping the Senate as well.
With this expectation, Toboroff says that one of the biggest, if not the biggest focal point for the next four years will be the situation with China, specifically, militarily. “Trump will believe that a military buildup will propel economic growth – and it might, because now ‘military’ encompasses most all of the strands of American energy, from innovation to distribution.”
He notes that Trump won’t trust his intel community’s report on the military strength of China and will test and verify for himself just how strong they are, be it through pushing back against the ChiComs at the South China Sea or by possibly protecting Taiwan from a potential invasion (especially since Hong Kong has fallen to the Chinese communists and Taiwan was never recognized by China as an independent nation).
Now, I do not exactly want a conflict with China that would escalate into a war, particularly as we are trying to get out of endless wars in the Middle East, which establishment members of both parties have prolonged for as long as possible. But with a militarily-aggressive China, Trump will have to do something, especially if we wish to keep China from growing its influence (which has been a bit shattered by the Chinese coronavirus).
On the Homefront, Toboroff writes that “rebalancing the judiciary” aka turning the lower courts away from the radical liberals and towards the Constitutional conservatives, focusing on an American education system that does not promote the failed and dangerous ideology of communism and focusing on punishing the people that tried to undermine Trump’s first term with the Russia hoax are things that Trump will have to keep an eye on.
These, I would argue, are some of the biggest issues in America today. The Left’s influence is far too massive and obstructive in the lower (and highest) courts and we need to change that. Regarding education, I have long written about how we need to reform education so that communism does not get promoted and taught (in a positive way) in schools, while also bringing back God into the classrooms (and the atheists who have a problem with that can lick my boot).
Toboroff suggests charter schools, which is definitely a good option. Charter schools are schools of choice (not dependent on districting) and are independently run, though publicly funded. The Left HATES charter schools almost as much as they hate homeschooling because they can’t get their filthy paws all over the students to corrupt their young minds and teacher’s unions don’t apply to these schools.
They don’t like charter schools because they work fairly capitalistically: if they are better, parents will choose to send their kids there, as opposed to the crappy ones. The Left doesn’t want parents to have a choice as to where to send their kids to school (at least, as long as the parents live in a particular district and don’t move out).
Transforming the education system will be crucial for the future of this country, which the Left has had far too much influence in constructing.
In any case, to begin wrapping up, Toboroff fully expects Trump to win a second term and expects that second term to be rather full for Trump, what with having to deal with a 21st century USSR, having to ideologically reform the judiciary, having to practically reform the education system so as to not indoctrinate generations into foolishly and dangerously believing communism is not absolute crap, and dealing with American traitors who tried to cheat in the 2016 election, failed, and then tried to undermine Trump’s first term and remove a duly-elected president through the Russia hoax.
I, like Toboroff, do not buy into the idea that Trump is finished (as I have demonstrated in numerous articles). The only thing I will add is that no one should buy into the idea that Trump can’t lose and get complacent as a result. The Left will do what it can to cheat in this election; they will pull out every dirty trick they have to in order to ensure Trump doesn’t win again. We cannot afford to get complacent and believe Trump is guaranteed to win. I believe he will, but will go out to vote (IN PERSON) to ensure his victory.

Truth be told, there are far too many reasons I could list that would answer that question for me to fit into one single article. I have already brought up, in the past, how the polls were showing Clinton would win by a landslide in 2016, and even shown the specific poll numbers and electoral vote predictions from a number of people, so there is no need for me to bring that up again.
There exists another reason that is far more contemporary than the 2016 polls: 2019 and 2020 polls.
You see, Matt Mayer has an interesting piece on Spectator about how “Predictions of Trump’s demise may yet again be premature.”
Mayer begins by showing the following numbers coming out of battleground states: in Arizona, Biden is up by two points. In North Carolina, he is up by eight; 11 in Pennsylvania, 10 in Michigan, 9 in Florida and eight in Ohio.
Under normal circumstances, and in a world where the news media is honest and objective, such numbers would spell trouble for Trump. However, we know perfectly well that the latter is not true, as we are literally talking about fake news polls. But that is not the only reason those numbers are suspect, and in fact, are not exactly bad news for Trump at all.
You see, those numbers that spell doom for the Trump re-election campaign were from last summer, before the Chinese coronavirus (and subsequently, the administration’s response to it, which some would argue was botched or at least not as good as it could have been (not that I am such a person)) and the “racial” riots we are seeing across the country and subsequently, Trump’s response to that as well. Last summer, just about everyone, Left or Right, was just about convinced that Trump would steamroll through the election and easily get re-elected.
Now, the Left is convinced (to an extent) that Biden will beat Trump as a result of the last roughly half year. So, then, those numbers that already had Biden winning in those battleground states have to have gotten bigger for Biden, right?
No, actually. Aside from Arizona, where Biden is now “ahead” by six points (a four-point increase), Trump has “closed the gap” in the other battleground states, in some by roughly half or even more.
In North Carolina, where Biden was supposedly leading by eight last year, he now only leads by one. In Pennsylvania, where Biden used to lead by eleven points, he now only leads by five. In Michigan, his lead is now only 6 (four-point decrease); in Florida, his lead is seven (two-point decrease); Wisconsin, Biden’s lead is 6 (three-point decrease) and in Ohio, Biden supposedly leads by six (two-point decrease).
If Trump truly butchered the response to the Chinese coronavirus and has performed abysmally in terms of dealing with racial inequality in America, and subsequently, dealing with the rioting and the destruction and burning down of places of business, homes, etc., - if Trump is truly as big of a screw-up just in the last half year as the Left says he is, how is it that polls show him gaining ground as opposed to losing it?
Like I said, last year, just about everyone was fully expecting Trump to easily win reelection. Despite what the polls said, I don’t think even the fake news media carrying those polls were convinced that Trump would be defeated by any of the 666 Democrat presidential candidates. Despite Biden’s lead early on, he would tend to flounder and he inspired just about no confidence at all, or even any energy. NO ONE is excited to vote for Biden, even now. Bernie was the clear opposition candidate for the DNC establishment and they did whatever they could to ensure Bernie would not be their nominee. Bernie got cheated twice.
The rest were a random assortment of lunacy, idiocy and radical communism but little personal appeal or notoriety to get very far in the polls. Warren was a cultural appropriator (not that any on the Left would dare call her that), Harris was a cop and an AG who routinely and unjustly would send black people to jail. Bloomberg’s stint lasted all of a half a movie’s run time and was essentially shot out of the sky after his first debate was over; Buttigieg was just the “look at me, I’m gay but somehow also the only person on here who would dare invoke the name of God” candidate; Gabbard was the only one I could even slightly tolerate because of her seemingly actual desire to bring our troops back and her hilarious attacks on Hillary, and the rest were totally forgettable.
Seriously, look up the Democrats who ran for president in 2020 and I can guarantee you straight up have not heard of at least a few of them, or forgotten that some of them ran.
My point is, despite the large number of candidates the Democrats boasted, time and time again, they all demonstrated a variety of reasons as to why they would lose to Trump by either a little or a lot. And now, the Democrats are stuck with a rapist with Dementia who refuses to leave the basement or answer any questions to the media because any unscripted engagement is 100% likely to result in him saying something else that demonstrates just how mentally unfit he is to run for president, let alone actually be president.
And this is the guy they say Trump is guaranteed to lose to? Again, even in their own polls, Trump has only GAINED support in key battleground states, even amidst a period of time in which one could argue Trump wasn’t at his best.
And we are still months away from the election. I have said this many times, but a lot can happen in between now and November of 2020. I have said this before the changing of the calendar took place, back when everyone was super confident Trump would easily be reelected, and I say this now, after the last few months of relative struggle. The events that will determine the results of the election have yet to occur. While one would think that the last few months have destroyed Trump’s chances, such a belief is rather short-sighted.
Even my own predictions on certain things have not panned out. I expected the Tara Reade story to be one that would haunt the Biden campaign. And while other things have obviously overshadowed that story because they were more important (namely, the pandemic), the fact that Biden is a rapist and hasn’t suffered the consequences in terms of support from women shows I was wrong with my predictions. Even the “you ain’t black” comment didn’t do much to hurt him with black people and he will still likely pull a majority of black voters to him.
So for anyone to believe the polls today, let alone a year ago, to be any indication of the results of the election is simply an exercise in madness. And even still, while I did say I wouldn’t bring this up again, I feel the need to mention that polls in 2016, specifically the day of the election, showed Clinton winning big and that obviously did not happen.
Not to mention the Cato Institute survey which showed people to be more reluctant to express their beliefs to other people because of fear of persecution, which could be one reason the polls say what they say: it’s entirely possible Trump supporters are either saying they “don’t know” who they will support or will say they will vote for Biden when they don’t actually plan to do so, and are just saying that to not be judged or punished by the pollsters.
The polls are wrong. Simple as that.

As much as the Left pretends there is no such thing as “cancel culture” (and we will see momentarily why it is that they say this), there really is no denying its existence. If anyone says something deemed “offensive” by people who have some amount of power – be it executive power or the power of pressure – that person runs the risk of being financially and professionally punished for sharing such opinions.
There were calls to have Houston Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey fired for sharing a pro-Hong Kong image on Twitter. Whenever a celebrity says something even remotely outside the lexicon allowed by the Left, that celebrity faces incredible pressure to take back what they said, and if they refuse, are threatened with financial repercussions, such as losing business deals. A good example of this is J.K. Rowling, who supposedly is “anti-trans” for sharing beliefs that do not align with the gender-dysphoric nutjobs, but she refuses to cave to the mob, and so, has lost business deals for publications for her popular Harry Potter books.
Now, J.K. Rowling has enough money that she doesn’t really have to worry about this. Even if no publisher will ever be willing to print another copy of her series, no book store – online or physical – be willing to sell her books, and no Hollywood studio ever be willing to work with her again or sell more digital or physical copies of the movies, essentially making it impossible for Rowling to profit off of her popular series, she has enough money to be entirely financially independent. She is, for all intents and purposes, uncancellable.
However, most people do not have Rowling money. Most people don’t have “screw the mob” money. Most people have to work five or more days a week, for 8 hours or more a day, in order to make a living. Most people need to be able to work and cannot afford to step out of line, saying or doing something that someone, be it an executive or a lowly intern, might find offensive, and risk losing their job as a result of it.
I’ve heard stories of people being practically interrogated by their employers for NOT sharing the black square on social media as part of a Black Lives Matter movement event. It’s no longer sufficient to simply be quiet about something, or not expressing one’s own views if they run contrary to the Leftist-approved narrative (and this explains why Leftists were making slogans like “silence is violence”). People are literally not allowed to be silent on an issue and must express the Leftist view, regardless of if they actually agree with it, otherwise they can be considered violent enemies.
There are also countless stories of people, such as media personalities, being fired or being threatened with termination for saying “all lives matter”, as though that is an extremely offensive term that is incorrect (though I do legitimately think the Left does not believe that all lives matter, and in fact, KNOW they don’t believe this, considering they are willing to kill babies in the womb and are willing to incite violence and terror against conservatives).
It’s no wonder, then, that Cato Institute found that nearly two-thirds of Americans (62%) believe they cannot safely express their views in fear of some form of retaliation.
According to Cato: “62% agree ‘the political climate these days prevents me from saying things I believe because others might find them offensive.’”
It’s more than just worrying people might find something offensive. If it stopped at that, nowhere near as many people would agree with this. It’s the fact that the “offended” party might retaliate in some form or another, often involving HR or the individual’s higher-ups, and get the individual punished for “offending” someone. And these punishments range anywhere from relatively mild suspensions to outright terminations from the companies.
And looking at things in terms of political demographics, one can see just who is more likely to be comfortable expressing their opinions and who is more likely to want to self-censor.
According to the poll, 58% of “strong liberals” believe they are free to speak their minds. In other words, uber-progressive, communist liberals believe they can say what they want without fear of repercussions (and this is one of the reasons why Leftists say there is no cancel culture – they hardly experience it). This stands in STARK contrast to everyone else, including even more moderate liberals.
According to the survey, 52% of liberals believe they have to self-censor, with 64% of moderates and 77% of conservatives agreeing with this notion.
Like I said, it no longer is enough to just be quiet on something. One must express the uber-Leftist view on everything. This, naturally, leads even more moderate liberals, those who might vote for people like Biden but don’t agree with the idea of defunding the police (because it is an asinine proposal) or destroying our economic system in order to fight a naturally-occurring event of climate change, to self-censor in fear of retaliation from people further Left.
And, of course, it’s not at all surprising to see conservatives being so willing to self-censor. I have mentioned this in various places, but the pillars of power in this country are largely owned by the Left. Conservatives stand in complete contrast to the Left, and so, are viewed as the natural enemies, and the out-of-power conservatives can only hope to not get in trouble by not expressing their beliefs.
Even objective, apolitical FACTS are cause for someone’s termination, such as in the case of Stephen Hsu, who was forced to resign from his position as vice president of research and innovation at Michigan State University after he shared a research paper (from the university itself) that found police were not more likely to shoot African-Americans than other races of people.
It’s a straight-up FACT that police are not more likely to shoot and kill African-Americans and last year, more unarmed white people were killed than unarmed black people. And yet, for sharing the findings of a research paper from the university itself and sharing facts about it, he was punished for sharing “scientific racism” and running contrary to the BLM movement and the Left.
Simply stating the fact that there are only two genders can get someone fired. Simply stating the fact that there is no man-made climate change can get someone fired or punished at some capacity, particularly for climate scientists. Simply stating that Trump is OUR PRESIDENT can get someone fired.
If you want any more proof that the Left does not operate using facts, there it is. Stating facts, if they run contrary to the Leftist narrative, has the possibility to get someone fired.
What’s more, the Cato Institute survey found that 50% of Strong Liberals support firing people who donate to Trump, while 36% of Strong Conservatives support firing people who donate to Biden.
I have a couple of things to say about this.
First, I am not surprised by that number from “strong liberals”. They are extremely intolerant and openly supporting Trump is seen as a crime against humanity itself, let alone making a donation to Trump.
Second, I do not see the Strong Conservatives as being equally or remotely as intolerant as the Strong Liberals, not simply because of the disparity in numbers; I see this as Strong Conservatives being willing to use cancel culture, a weapon designed by the Left, against the Left itself.
If a conservative can be made to suffer because of cancel culture, there is ZERO reason not to use it against the Left. As I have stated before, conservatives not using cancel culture against the Left is like someone refusing to use their gun in a duel, or like a side of a war refusing to fire against their attackers.
Think of cancel culture used by conservatives as a gun: we use it as a self-defense method.
Unlike a gun, however, I don’t exactly like cancel culture. Ideally, no one would be punished for sharing their beliefs – except maybe for communists, and we currently have in the law books the Communist Control Act of 1954, which outlawed the Communist Party of the United States and “prevents communists from holding office in labor organizations” according to MTSU. While many of the provisions of this act were eventually repealed, I think we should bring it back with full force to outlaw communist from serving in Congress and all types of offices.
Ideally, people should be free to express themselves without fear of retaliation, but we live far from an ideal world for a variety of reasons, chief among which is our very nature as human beings, which is evil.
So, since we do not live in an ideal world, we have to do certain things which are not exactly pretty. Such things include using cancel culture, which is largely awful, against the Left, since they have no trouble at all using it against us and it’s asinine not to fight back when one is at war if one wishes to not be defeated.
At any rate, we can clearly see the sort of damage cancel culture itself causes to people who simply want to live their normal lives, largely unplug from politics, and do honest work for a living – paying their bills and providing for themselves and their families.
People want to be able to go to their places of work without having to worry about what they say or do on their social media during their off-hours. People want to be able to freely express their support for either the Democrat or Republican presidential candidates, or simply abstain from engaging in these discussions, without being worried about being punished for it in terms of their finances or even their very employment.
I hope we can one day return to a time when people didn’t have to worry about this stuff. That time, however, will have to be after this cultural war of ours is over and the good guys have won.
One final note about this that I wish to quickly make is that this Cato poll really shines quite the light about other political polls. If so many people are afraid to be honest with their beliefs, exactly how many of those people do you think honestly answered a pollster who asked them who they plan to support in this election?
Just saying, this is another possible reason for Trump to supposedly be “behind” Biden in the polls, particularly by as many points as he supposedly is (apart from the fact that these pollsters always under-sample Republicans and conservatives).
