Last night’s GOP Convention featured rising star Daniel Cameron, Kentucky’s Attorney General, and Ryan Holets, a police officer and “father of five who, together with his wife, adopted the daughter of a drug user living on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico.” It featured President Trump pardoning “Jon Ponder, who was arrested” and “went to prison for bank robbery; after his release, he became the founder and CEO of Hope for Prisoners, which helps ex-convicts reenter civilian life.”

Last week’s Democrat Convention featured has-beens like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi and Bill Clinton. The Democrats’ rising stars are mostly radicals who fit into the mainstream of the Democrat Party but are far outside the mainstream of American politics. Maine lobsterman Jason Joyce “spoke in support of Trump’s trade and fisheries policies.” Cris Peterson spoke “in support of Trump’s trade policies that favor American dairy exports.” DFL Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevic praised “Trump’s steel tariffs”:

Last week, speaker after speaker spoke about what a nice guy Joe Biden is. What they omitted is that he’s been wrong on policy after policy. Vlaisavljevic said that Biden has been in DC for 47 years before asking “why would year 48 be any different?” Getting thing after thing wrong isn’t just something that Joe Biden is famous for. It’s who he is.

President Trump has made mistakes with the China Virus. Nobody would’ve gotten every decision right. When it comes to the economy and trade, though, President Trump got everything right. Literally for decades, Joe Biden got those things wrong. To answer Mayor Vlaisavljevic, there’s nothing in Biden’s record to think that year 48 will be better than the first 47.

Despite their protestations otherwise, the Democrat National Convention was a flop. The ratings were terrible. Barack and Michelle Obama told voters that they were upset with voters for not voting in 2016. Bill Clinton lectured the nation about conduct in the Oval Office. Hillary Clinton insisted that President Trump had stolen the election, once again refusing to admit that she was a terrible candidate who ran a terrible campaign.

Last night, Joe Biden used his acceptance speech to inform us that “Character is on the ballot. Compassion is on the ballot. Decency, science, democracy. They are all on the ballot.”

This morning on Fox & Friends, Vice President Pence said that “The economy is on the ballot. Law and order is on the ballot.” Pence added that the Democratic nominee’s policies, which he said were “overtaken by the radical left” would “simply invite more violence and more mayhem in our streets.” Then Pence “added that ‘there was so much negativity, nothing but ad hominem attacks’ and ‘a very negative view of America’ at the DNC.”

As a result of the Democrats’ boring, mean-spirited convention, something unusual has happened:


President Trump got a post-DNC bounce. In 2004, John Kerry didn’t get a bounce from the Democrats’ Convention. It’s one thing, though, to not get a bounce. It’s quite another to have the incumbent get a bounce coming out of his challenger’s Convention. I don’t recall this ever happening before since I started votingin 1976.

I’m certain that President Trump will get a bounce from his Convention. That’s because a) President Trump has a positive message to offer the American people, b)the RNC learned from the DNC’s mistakes this week and c) President Trump is a charismatic figure, something that can’t be said about Joe Biden. Also playing into the uplifting message from the RNC is the theme for the week. That theme is “Honoring the Great American Story.” Each night will have its own theme, too:

On Monday, the convention theme will be the “Land of Promise,” Tuesday’s will be the “Land of Opportunity,” Wednesday will focus on the “Land of Heroes” and events culminate in the “Land of Greatness” on Thursday.

It’s been reported that each of the primetime speeches will be live and that President Trump’s acceptance speech will have a live, socially-distanced audience from the White House South Lawn.

I’ve long thought that Joe Biden’s lead isn’t as solid as polling suggests. This article suggests that President Trump is making a spirited pitch to Hispanics. When Democrats attacked and boycotted Goya Foods, it gave the Trump campaign the opening it needed to attack Democrats and Joe Biden.

In a TV ad set to start airing in south Florida, Cuban actress Susana Pérez says “We sacrificed so much to be free and respected. Now the left has launched a smear campaign against Goya, the brand we love, just because Goya is working with President Trump, just like it did with Obama. Joe Biden and the Democrats are too extreme, socialism, cut police funding, take away charter schools and Joe Biden is too weak to defend us.”

The message is clear and powerful. Mixed throughout the ad are images of Che Guevara, the Cuban Refugee Airlift, AOC and a picture of Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders smiling on a debate stage while the Chiron says “Extremists.”

That’s just part of the bad news. Here’s more bad news for Biden:

The same survey found 60 percent of Latinos said they’d vote for Biden over Trump. An NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll from late June found that 59 percent of Latino voters back Biden over Trump. Those figures, if translated into November vote totals, would be less than the 66 percent Hillary Clinton achieved in 2016 and the 71 percent Barack Obama won in 2012.

If President Trump gets 30%-35% of the Hispanic vote, he’ll put lots of states in play. Think of it this way. If President Trump loses Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin but holds all of the other states he won in 2016, he’d be at 260 electoral votes. If President Trump then wins New Hampshire and New Mexico, that puts him at 269 electoral votes, which throws the race to the House of Representatives.

That’s before considering possibilities like Colorado and Minnesota. Thanks to Jacob Frey’s mishandling of the George Floyd riots, Minnesota is definitely in play, though it’s still an uphill fight for Trump.

That’s academic if President Trump wins any of the Hillary Blue Wall states this time.

Al Franken’s stupidity and partisanship are fully displayed in this CNN op-ed. Early in the op-ed, Franken writes “When your opponent is digging himself a hole, you let him keep digging. By design or necessity, Joe Biden has laid low since we all sheltered in place, allowing President Donald Trump to turn the November election into a referendum on Donald Trump. And right now, Donald Trump appears to be losing badly to Donald Trump.”

This is what I’d expect from an idiot like Franken. Franken apparently hasn’t figured out that Biden’s dementia has robbed him of an ability to look plausible. Apparently, Franken isn’t bright enough to figure out that the rioting and looting are losing issues for Democrats in battleground states. It’s obvious that Franken is discounting the economic recovery that’s already underway thanks to the steps President Trump put in place.

While I don’t have the official data that proves the start of the COVID economic recovery, the signs are getting impossible to miss. Consumer confidence is rising. Millions of jobs are getting created. Home sales are going up. Oil prices have recovered, which wouldn’t happen if the economy is still contracting.

After reading this, I’m wondering if Franken has used his brain lately:

The first, of course, is that a Trump victory would be a disaster for everything Democrats hold dear. Here’s a short list — democracy, economic justice, social justice and justice. That leaves out a whole bunch — for instance, providing health care for all Americans and global warming. Stuff like that.

Secondly, between now and November, Trump and the Republicans will do everything they can to cheat. That means using every tool possible to suppress votes, including a full court press to prevent vote-by-mail, even if we are still deep in the throes of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Third, if Trump loses a close election, he may very well refuse to leave.

Franken’s right about something. A second Trump victory “would be a disaster for everything Democrats hold dear.” That, though, would be a positive thing for the nation. Another Trump victory would mean 4 more years of hitting China hard for the Chinese Communist Party’s corruption and deception. Another Trump victory would mean 4 more years of a soaring economy that works for everyone. Another Trump victory means that Republicans would expose Democrats as being weak on crime and defense, economically illiterate and that they talk a better game about the middle class than they deliver.

Next, President “Trump and the Republicans” won’t try to cheat. Sen. Franken should check with the NJ Attorney General. Democrats, not Republicans, committed voter fraud, mostly through the Vote-By-Mail, aka VBM, system in Paterson, NJ. People in glass houses should carelessly throw stones around.

Third, it’s time to retire the ‘Trump won’t leave if he loses’ line. Hillary still hasn’t accepted the results of the 2016 election. This is the worst case of projection in the history of partisan politics.

Then again, Franken’s brain is likely too fried from all the drugs he’s used during his SNL days:

I’ve been consistent in predicting this presidential election since before the Impeachment hearings started. It’s my long-held theory that the first presidential test is the ‘commander-in-chief’ test. This year, there’s another threshold to eclipse. I call it the are-you-out-of-your-mind test.

Another gift that Democrats have thrown President Trump is the Defund-the-Police movement. Never has a major political party given the opposing major political party a bigger gift than that. Establishment Democrats insist that “defund the police” doesn’t mean they want to defund the police. Establishment Democrats insist that they just mean that they want to take money away from law enforcement, then give that cash to other Democrat wish list items. Others insist that they mean to dismantle entire police departments.

A respectable case can be made that Joe Biden can’t pass either test. Too often, Biden is caught looking at his notes while answering questions during interviews with TV hosts. Too often, Biden stumbles, not stutters, in making basic points that a congressional candidate would make with ease. Too often, Mr. Biden can’t string 3 straight coherent sentences together, his cognitive decline on full display:

Biden’s cognitive decline is frequently on full display. This isn’t a surprise to honest people. In the above video, Joe clearly isn’t right when he said “poor people are just as smart as white people.” He’s clearly not thinking clearly when he says that “we choose truth over facts.” He couldn’t even struggle his way out of “we hold these truths … you know, the thing.”

Clearly, Democrats will pick Biden’s running mate because she will be the president within 2-3 months if he wins. At this point, Susan Rice and Elizabeth Warren look like the finalists. Neither is qualified to be president or vice president.

During a crisis, Rice lied to each major Sunday morning talk show to hide the fact that Hillary Clinton didn’t protect the ambassador to Libya. Warren told a story that she was let go because she was “visibly pregnant at the time.” She’s said that she wouldn’t do fundraisers with billionaires because she’s all about fighting for the little guy. Last night, she hosted a fundraiser with some of the richest people in America. You can’t rail that the system is rigged, then hobnob with the people she’s accused of rigging the system.

Meanwhile, the Trump-RNC juggernaut keeps chugging along:

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale on Monday said they have received more than 1 million ticket requests for President Trump’s first campaign-style rally since the coronavirus lockdowns slated to take place Saturday. “Over 1M ticket requests for the @realDonaldTrump #MAGA Rally in Tulsa on Saturday,” Parscale tweeted Monday, adding safety guidelines for the event.

When I wrote this post, I wrote that “According to Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, 96.6% of the people who attend a Trump rally wind up voting for him. Additionally, Parscale said that if a person who attends a Trump rally and who makes a contribution, the chances of that voter returning and voting for Trump jumps to 98.4%.” That’s why the #MAGA rallies are the greatest GOTV operation in the history of politics. The other thing that the Trump campaign has touted is that they’re using these #MAGA rallies as voter registration drives. People that think that Trump is using these rallies to pump up his base isn’t paying attention to the reality that he’s using these rallies to expand his base.

Anyone that trusts the MSM hasn’t paid attention to the COVID-19 briefings. At yesterday’s COVID-19 briefing, New Yorker correspondent Olivia Nuzzi asked President Trump a question. She asked “If more Americans died in the last six weeks than the entirety of the Vietnam War, do you deserve to be re-elected?”

Rather than take the bait, President Trump responded by a) touting the decision to shut off travel with China, b) praising the work of Vice President Trump’s task force and c) talking about how the US is “lapping the world” in terms of testing.

It isn’t surprising that that Q & A was the last exchange of the briefing. It isn’t surprising that former Bush Administration Press Secretary Ari Fleischer took to Twitter to criticize Nuzzi. What’s surprising is how harsh he was in criticizing her:


In a very lady-like reply (if that lady is Nancy Pelosi, AOC or Hillary), Nuzzi replied this way:


If Nuzzi was a US senator, Mazie Hirono would praise her. For those who’ve forgotten Sen. Hirono, here’s a reminder of who she is:

Nuzzi and Hirono give witches a bad name. They almost make Nancy Pelosi look pleasant.

After reading this statement, I’d argue that it’s time for Republicans to go on the offensive against the Democrats’ corruption. Specifically, it’s time Senate Republicans exposed just how corrupt the Obama administration was.

The key part of the statement said “According to Andrii Telizhenko, a political officer in the Ukraine Embassy in Washington, D.C. who participated in a January 2016 meeting, ‘U.S. officials volunteered … that they had an interest in reviving a closed investigation into payments to U.S. figures from Ukraine’s Russia-backed Party of Regions,’ which refers to the investigation that involved Paul Manafort.” It doesn’t stop there. Here’s what it says when it continues:

“During that same meeting, U.S. officials also reportedly brought up investigations relating to Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas company that had hired then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, to serve as a board member. According to Telizhenko, ‘U.S. officials told the Ukrainians they would prefer that Kiev drop the Burisma probe and allow the FBI to take it over.”

Doesn’t that sound like “U.S. officials” saying that they planned on making the Burisma-Biden scandal disappear? What better way to make it disappear than to give it to Jim Comey’s FBI? Why did “U.S. officials” want to restart the Manafort investigation, too? Schiff said that the Ukraine election interference story had been debunked. With official WH records showing these meetings happened, that takes this from being a conspiracy theory to being investigation-worthy.

This isn’t surprising. Democrats, starting with Schiff, have said that the Biden fiasco has been debunked. They’ve never said who debunked the story or who conducted the investigation that exonerated Hunter. This will give the Democrats some indigestion:

According to Telizhenko:

[Chalupa] said the DNC wanted to collect evidence that Trump, his organization and Manafort were Russian assets, working to hurt the U.S. and working with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin against the U.S. interests. She indicated if we could find the evidence they would introduce it in Congress in September and try to build a case that Trump should be removed from the ballot, from the election.

Democrats pretend to care about Russian interference in our elections. Democrats did this while they cultivated foreign contacts with the goal of getting President Trump kicked off the ballot. Apparently, Democrats don’t want the American people to decide who their president is. Apparently, Democrats are happy to spread propaganda on hide the truth about their corrupt intentions with Ukraine through Ms. Chalupa.

Voters need to ask themselves some serious questions about what they want from the 2020 elections. First, is it better to have politicians that listen to the people than having politicians who ignore the needs of the people? It’s clear that Democrats ran on fixing health care. Instead, they’ve spent this entire congress impeaching President Trump. What’s worse is that Democrats apparently will pursue another round of impeachment hearings once this impeachment trial ends.

Next, is it better to have politicians who keep their promises than it is to break their promises? House Democrats promised to fix health care and lower prescription drug prices. That was dropped virtually the minute that they got gavels. Yes, they passed a bill on prescription drugs. It was virtually all about price controls from the federal government. That isn’t a solution. That’s the opposite of fixing it.

Meanwhile, when Republicans were in the majority, they passed the tax cuts that have acted like jet fuel to the economy. Republicans did that without a single vote from Democrats in either the House or Senate. (Isn’t that what’s called obstruction?) Republicans used the Congressional Review Act to eliminate tons of Obama administration regulations. Eliminating those regulations have led to the fracking boom and the energy boom. As a result of that, we’re no longer dependent on Mideast oil that travel through the Straits of Hormuz.

President Trump has flaws but he’s got some incredible strengths, too. Think of the BS that Democrats have thrown at him via impeachment, improperly surveilling his campaign, his transition and his administration. Think of the BS that the media has thrown at him. For example, this week, John Dean and Carl Bernstein were part of a panel on CNN. Bernstein emphatically insisted that the Senate participated in a cover-up because they didn’t call additional witnesses:

During the public House Permanent Special Committee on Intelligence hearings, the media ‘reported’ of that day’s “bombshell testimony” like they were obligated to do it. The people need to decide whether we want responsible journalists who tell the truth or whether we want tabloid journalists who work as propagandists for Establishment Democrats.

Imagine what would’ve gotten done if President Trump had a congress that worked with him. Imagine what would’ve gotten accomplished if the press simply reported the truth.

Fourth, the people need to determine whether we want a corrupt Democrat as Senate Majority Leader or whether we want a Republican who works with President Trump on confirming judges to the district, appellate and Supreme courts and criminal justice reform.

There’s tons of proof that Sen. Schumer and Speaker Pelosi prefer acting like Resist Movement activists as opposed to acting like the loyal opposition. Finally, do the people want these haters controlling the Democrat Party?


Much is at stake in this election. Voting Democrat isn’t a serious option. Look at the damage that they’ve already done.

In the 1990s, Hillary Clinton insisted that there was a “vast right wing conspiracy” dedicated to taking down her husband. Twenty years later, Hillary is still pushing conspiracy theories:

Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008.

Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. “They are also going to do third party again,” Clinton, 71, said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, referring to Gabbard, without mentioning the Hawaii representative by name.

“She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset. “They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate, and so I do not know who it’s going to be, but I can guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most need it.”

Wow! This comes from a woman who was just a few votes away from being president. That’s frightening.

Then, too, it isn’t that surprising. Democrats see ghosts wherever they look so seeing this ghost isn’t that unusual by Democrats’ standards. Seeing this ghost by normal people’s standard would be weird. Remember that HRC didn’t just accuse Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian asset. HRC also accused Jill Stein of being a Russian asset.

If HRC got into the race and won the nomination, she’d get drilled. It’s being charitable to say that she’s exhibited erratic behavior. She’s made unsubstantiated accusations. The economy is fantastic. Trying to prove otherwise is challenging at minimum. HRC must know that her time has passed.

The voters that are coming of age only think of HRC as a Swamp relic from a bygone generation. They don’t remember her as former First Lady. They likely don’t remember that much about HRC as Obama’s Secretary of State. Remember that was 12 years ago.

This is a great example of Hillary’s paranoia. It’s proof that a little HRC paranoia goes a long way.

This past week, Rose McGowan criticized Hillary Clinton. Actually, Ms. McGowan let the former First Lady have it with both barrels. Supposedly, “Rose McGowan called out Hillary Clinton last week over a report that Clinton’s publicist told journalist Ronan Farrow that his investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s alleged history of sexual misconduct was ‘a concern’ for the Clinton camp. ‘I knew that Hillary Clinton’s people were protecting the Monster,’ McGowan wrote, referring to Weinstein. ‘I can’t believe I used to support her. I guess predators are her style.'”

Good for Ms. McGowan. Hillary is one of the nastiest, cold-blooded, public figures I’ve ever seen. Frankly, I wouldn’t want her autograph or a copy of any of her books. She’s so morally bankrupt that she didn’t walk away from Bill Clinton. She’s so morally bankrupt that she kept accepting money from Weinstein.

This interview shows how the system works:

It’s built by the Clintons, Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby to perpetuate their disgusting behavior. The thought of rehabilitation for any of these monsters should be the furthest thing from society’s mind. The hell these people caused shouldn’t be forgotten.

Bill Clinton did some unspeakable things but what Hillary did was, in my estimation, infinitely worse. She portrayed herself as a champion for women while she protected her husband and predators like Harvey Weinstein. It’s important that people remember that Hillary put herself in charge of “bimbo eruptions.” That’s such a disgusting term, isn’t it?

Hillary wasn’t asked to handle it. She volunteered to do it. All the while, she protected Harvey Weinstein, too. Here’s hoping that Ms. McGowan’s criticism will be a major part of Hillary’s epitaph. Hillary’s earned it.
