A STARK CHOICE AT THE BALLOT BOX
The coming Presidential election, which actually includes the option of reinstalling one of the people that the Trump/Pence Administration directly replaced, offers Americans a stark choice. Most people can remember how bad things were under Obama: the sluggish economy that dragged on as if it were stuck in quicksand, the deadly chaos in the Middle East, the rising encroachment on individual rights, etc. And they can remember how Republican Rudy Giuliani turned New York City into one of the great comeback miracle stories of all time.
They can also compare those memories of the Obama years to the booming economy, rollback of regulations and new Middle East peace agreement under Trump…and they can look at the disaster that is New York City today under far-left Democrat Bill DeBlasio. Likewise, Seattle, Detroit, San Francisco, Chicago and other once-great cities are mostly in the news now for crime, riots, shootings, homelessness, drugs, arson and other scary negative stories after years of Democratic “governance.” In Los Angeles, before they shut everything down over COVID-19, the biggest disease concern was that the Democratic leaders had allowed so much squalor to fester that it was bringing back medieval diseases like typhus. Maybe the leaders of these cities are actually allowing all the arson because fire is the only way to sterilize them.
The latest example of outrageous leftist idiocy plaguing US cities comes from Austin, Texas, where the “progressive” Democrats are responding to a rising tide of homelessness and violence by slashing the police budget and using the money to fund more abortions. That will actually cost more black lives in two ways.
It’s become obvious that today’s Democrats cannot be trusted to run anything. They ruin anything they touch. But I’m sure some readers will accuse me of engaging in partisan hyperbole, so let’s take a look at some hard, cold figures to back up what I just wrote.
On the national level, Matt Margolis at PJ Media uses Kamala Harris’ big fat lie(s) about the Trump economy to remind us of the actual stats of the Obama/Biden economy, compared to how well Trump was doing before everything had to be shut down thanks to Joe’s pal, China. He also notes that Biden claims he'll bring back the economy faster than Trump, while also wanting to keep it shut down even longer. How would that work?
And on the local level, as a reminder of how peachy things are when Democrats run everything, here’s a story about the newly-released annual report by the American Legislative Exchange Council, which ranks New York dead last as the state with the worst economic outlook of any state.
This is the sixth year that New York has ranked last (Coincidentally, Bill DeBlasio became Mayor of New York City six years ago.) The high taxes and rising regulations have been driving people away for a while now, but the exodus has accelerated thanks to the return of lawlessness, chaos and filth. Like this…
Note that the #1 state for rosy economic outlook is Utah, with many other red states in the top 15, while the bottom group are all deep blue states. How could the so-called “Golden State” of California, with all its natural advantages, rank 46th in economic outlook? Because of its incompetent Democratic politicians. One of them is now running with Joe Biden to become the actual President.
The conclusion is obvious: If you want someone to bring back law and order and economic growth, vote for Republicans. If you want someone to bring back typhus, vote for Democrats.
Gaze upon the unmasked face of a “peaceful protester,” arrested by the FBI in New York City for allegedly dousing a police car with gasoline and setting it aflame. This guy was actually even more smug than the face of his Guy Fawkes mask: he’d spray-painted “Too Late!” on the wall of his abandoned apartment to mock the cops for their inability to catch him. They also found a copy of “The Anarchist’s Cookbook,” which has recipes for making explosives
The arrogant anarchist must’ve been surprised when the FBI showed up at his work and arrested him with his passport in his backpack. The passport, along with the “Too Late” stunt, were enough to convince a judge that he was a flight risk, so no bail. Also, he’s facing federal charges, so no local far-left, George Soros-backed DA to let him free to commit arson again.
One more hint to his arrogant obliviousness: he’d been arrested twice before, once for blocking traffic while protesting police brutality, and once for swinging a chain at another person in a dispute over a parking spot. Guess he’s only opposed to brutality when the police do it.
Let’s hope we see a lot more stories like this very soon, to send out the message to all the junior revolutionaries that playtime is over and consequences are back.
WHAT A WEEK
What a week for news! One of the big stories was that Joe Biden picked a running mate after weeks of speculation. Just like Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog that surfaces every year in Gobbler’s Knob, Pennsylvania, Joe Biden popped up out of his basement and announced his selection of CA Senator Kamala Harris. The Biden campaign had castigated Fox News host Tucker Carlson for calling her Kamm-eh-luh, but then on the actual announcement day, Joe actually called her both Komm-eh-luh AND Kamm-eh-luh in almost the same sentence!
She brings some charisma to the campaign without a doubt. But she named the most liberal Senator in the entire Senate in 2019—more liberal than Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, which is saying something. She has in the past called Joe Biden a racist and said she believed the women who said Joe sexually harassed them. But as is typical in politics, what she said then and what she’s willing to say now are two different things. Two VERY different things. She proves that the vice-presidency is a job no one claims to want, but no one ever turns down. Will she campaign only in the basement like Joe Biden or will she actually become the public face of the campaign and let Joe give tightly scripted, occasional comments with no spontaneous questions from the media?
While Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats have broken off discussions to deal with the Corona Virus economic impact to folks like you, President Trump announced a huge Middle East breakthrough with the United Arab Emirates to establish full diplomatic relations. This is huge. Tonight in the show we’ll be talking with US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, but suffice it to say, this is a historic breakthrough for peace in the Middle East and a major blow to Iran who increasingly is isolating itself from being part of the world neighborhood and is being relegated to the status of the hateful, cranky neighbor who puts razor blades in apples to give to trick or treaters on Halloween.
This was a significant victory for President Trump and it exposed the disastrous deal that the Obama administration had made with Iran in which pallets of US cash was delivered in cargo planes—the first $400 million literally delivered on pallets with a total of $1.7 billion paid in all…every bit of it in US cash. YOUR money. Obama and Biden bankrolled Iran; President Trump has bankrupted them. That will be an interesting point of contrast in the debates!
And another item—riots, looters, and mobs continue a reign of terror across the country and Democrat politicians refuse to stop it or even speak out against it. In Chicago, thugs overran a Ronald McDonald House for sick children and terrorized seriously sick kids inside being treated for cancer and all manner of diseases-a RONALD McDONALD HOUSE! In Bend, Oregon, a mob that included a city council member and the local district attorney, surrounded buses carrying illegal immigrants convicted of violent crimes, demanding that they be freed from custody. The standoff lasted for over 12 hours. Think about this—the local prosecutor actually took the side of the illegal aliens…2 of which had been CONVICTED—not just charged, but CONVICTED—with domestic violence. So elected officials there stood FOR domestic violence and wife-beating by illegals instead of standing with the law enforcement officials and the victims of the crimes.
Make sure you realize that you will be voting for more than the personalities or even the people on the ballot. You’ll be taking a side on issues like whether we should stand with Iran or Israel; whether we should uphold the law and punish criminals or punish the citizens by defunding police departments and looking the other way at mob violence, looting, riots, and destruction of public property and the theft of private property. If that choice is really hard for you to make, you might want to re-think whether you should even vote. Maybe dead people voting would be better. Sure wouldn’t be worse!
