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.
“For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
