So, are tired of listening to me? I’m tired of flapping my jaw, so today we are going to let some other people talk. Let’s start with why America is so rich.

This, in fact, pretty much sums it up

 

So, what makes us different?

Here’s why

But this election has the possibility of ending all this, and putting out that beacon. I’ve said many times this year, “You can vote for America, or you can vote for the Democrats.” I mean it.

Here is Victor Davis Hanson on “Plague, Panic, and Protests …” Our weird election year

The View from England

On the 3rd of November this year, the US will hold what I believe to be the most important presidential election of our time. Over the last decade or so, times have indeed been-a-changing but not for the better. The left have picked up their pace, with more infringements on our civil liberties, further laws to divide our communities, and a vociferous hatred of the people and values that built our great countries – the United States and Britain. Over the last few months, we have seen our countries face lockdowns, which our leaders claim are to stop a virus, which is only affecting certain sections of our societies, and the people are constantly being forced fed a diet of fear spread predictably through a mainstream media directing their truths and backed up by a political class whose only aim is to take more power.

Throughout this period, we have seen the rise of the far left, in the Marxist group Black Lives Matter, which cares as much for black lives as the Democrats care for the future of their country, and the terrorist organisation, Antifa. Both groups’ aims are to cause chaos throughout the country, spreading fear within communities which they look to divide while tearing down the history, culture, and values of both countries and all the while making ridiculous demands like defunding the police, something which would enable the chaos to continue and spread. At any other time, both organisations would be ignored but they have the support of Democrats, in the States, and the left in our country which, unfortunately, includes our government, formerly known as the Conservative Party. It is a wretched state of affairs in both our countries and I’m hopeful that the cultural counter-revolution, wherever that may come from, starts sooner rather than later. Do I see the re-election of Trump as a way to move that on in the States? Sadly, no. Despite Trump being in charge, the horrific events we’ve seen in the last few months have been allowed to continue and the president has been able to do little about it. Whether that’s because it’s an election year and he’s reluctant to get involved or because Democrats have the mandate over their states, I don’t know. What I do know is that it’s pivotal for Trump to be elected, certainly from our perspective.

First off, because of Brexit. Biden was Obama’s vice president during his 2 terms in office and as we know, Obama stated that the UK would be at the back of the queue for any trade deals. If Biden was elected, I’d expect this message to remain. If anything, he would probably urge Britain to rethink its membership with the EU and with our useless leaders, we’d probably find ourselves pulled back in, despite the democratic mandate given by our people in 2016. Trump, on the other hand, values this country but he’s a businessman, at the end of the day, and he’ll negotiate hard for a deal that works for his country over any other. That’s good because at least we’ll get the opportunity to negotiate rather than being in a position where we’re shunted to the outer edges while being redirected back to Brussels. Biden might be favoured by our elite but many of our people won’t be too happy at seeing him in power, especially with Kamala Harris at his side. They won’t work for the interests of the American people at large and they certainly will do us no favours.

Secondly, because it’s important that a conservative remains in charge of the US. It’s also important that when the opportunity arises to re-elect governors, that chance is taken by the people of the US. The states that are seeing the most turmoil – rises in crime and unemployment – are Democrat-run states and I do hope the people suffering in those places recognise that their leaders have done nothing to help them, only exacerbate the issues. Electing conservatives will be a huge boon for the people who have watched the chaos ensue and businesses destroyed while their leaders have sat on their hands and done nothing.

Proper conservative leaders are few and far between across the world and with the globalists and quangos, like the UN, keen to alter the way we operate globally, it’s important that there is a pushback on many of their plans. Trump is not influenced by these bodies and has already removed his country from some of these groups, which act against the interests of not only the American people but many other countries too.

After watching, for the last few years, a government in this country abandon its conservative values and slide to the left, favouring positive discrimination and identity politics, which installed hate crime in our legislation and has allowed common purpose to take over our institutions, it makes me envious to see President Donald J Trump sit in the White House. I wish we had someone like him here. Someone who doesn’t pander to the left or thuggish organisations or to the media but someone with the balls to stand for his values.

You are in a very fortunate position and I hope that we will see, on the 4th of November, President Trump ready to take his place as your head of state for a further 4 years.

Know what’s better than a Poll?

I read a headline this morning that stated that President Trump out-raised Biden in campaign funds for the month of July by $25, 000, 000! Like milk, that kind of news ‘does a body good’.

President Trump raised $165 million. That’s breath-taking.

I read a headline a couple of days ago that stated that President Trump received more voter registrations – you only register if you’re a first time voter – which means registered Republican – than did Biden. Just keeps getting better.

The polls (see angry face emoji) are now showing that Biden in way ahead of President Trump. This gives me great joy! Because, as I’ve discussed (probably more than you cared for, lol), the Silent Majority is growing. Plus, never forget Blexit and Latinos for Trump and Jews for Trump. Warms the cockles of my heart.

I am joyful this morning. All the signs look good. But you know how it goes – tomorrow I could be a quaking heap of fear and anxiety.

But for now … Yehaw!

We’re three months from November 3rd. What do you think; will he be re-elected?

Sunday Funnies: Kamala

So. Joe Biden saved us a lot of time and money by selecting Kamala Harris to be the next President of the United States. How nice of him, but I’m afraid a fair number of Americans disagree with his choice. For perfectly good reasons, as well.

 

A reminder, in Kristi Noem’s South Dakota, where there have never been any lock downs, or restriction on freedom, and which has one of the lowest virus rates, and the strongest economy, as well as one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, The Sturgis Rally was held this week, with its normal huge crowds. Here’s a few pictures.

You know, if I were 20 years younger (20? Hah! I hear) I think I might have to make the fairly short trip one of these years!

Meanwhile, across the pond

And, of course

There’s little wrong with President Trump that more Trump couldn’t solve.

I suspect many of you remember Michael Anton (the author of The Flight 93 Election in 2016. He has a new article out in The Claremont Review of Books, Scott Johnson of PowerLine selected for us to be able to read without a subscription. If you are familiar with CRB these articles tend to be fairly long, and this is no exception. They also tend to be amazingly good, and the is one of the best I’ve read. It’s titled The Case for Trump, and if you think the course we’re on is as wrong as can be, like me, you need to read and understand this. Here is a little bit of it.

Whenever I’m asked—mostly by leftist concern trolls who want to write “Former Trump Official Bashes President”—if I have any criticisms of President Trump, my answer is always the same: there’s little wrong with President Trump that more Trump couldn’t solve. More populism. More nationalism. More patriotism. More law and order. More full-throated advocacy for the neglected American people, for the working class, for the Rust Belt and rural America, for religious believers and law-abiding gun owners. More defense of free speech against tech and corporate censorship and suppression, more support for his voters when they or their interests are viciously attacked. In short, more adherence to the 2016 agenda.

The only way to get more Trump is, literally, to get more Trump. Which means the president being reelected and implementing his core agenda in a second term. But that alone will not be enough. Saving America as a unified, self-governing republic is a long-term—possibly generational—project.

There is simply no other choice if we are to preserve the American republic in anything even resembling what the Founders created, we simply must reelect Trump. And then support him with all of our voices and actions.

The seemingly paradoxical answer is that one side needs to gain and keep—electorally!—the upper hand for a while: specifically, the side that has been getting the short end of the stick for the last generation at least. Its leaders will of course, and of necessity, use their power to benefit their side—their base—but they must also use it to right the ship, to rebalance and benefit the whole.

Reform or Replace

We see immediately, however, that no party representing the interests of the rural, small-town and small-city manufacturing-agricultural population currently exists. The Democrats long ago abandoned “the common man” in favor of their high-low coalition. The Republicans would seem to be the country party—certainly, they get a lot of their votes from such people—but in practice GOP office-holders and donors are just as, if not more, likely to side with the interests of the ruling class and “global capital” over those of their own ostensible base.

What’s needed, then, is a Trumpist political party focused squarely on “old economy”—rural, manufacturing, and blue-collar interests. Which means, in most if not all cases, a party actively opposed to the program of the ruling class. If the Republican Party can become that, all to the good. If it can’t, it should go out of business.

How many times we all, thought and often said this in the last three years. Yeah, my throat is just about worn out from yelling this. What should this party of the people stand for? Heare’s what Mr. Anton thinks.

  • We’re the party of good jobs and higher wages—for you. Yes, we’re for economic freedom and (mostly) free markets, but not as ends in themselves, rather because theory and practice alike show that these are the best ways to produce prosperity for all. We’re well aware that the pseudo-prosperity of the last few decades has not been shared but has been gobbled up by those at the top, that you and your families have been left behind and even left out.
  • The animating spirit of our party is to change that, to pursue policies that encourage domestic manufacturing, create jobs, and raise wages. And not just any jobs—not just paper-pushing and burger-flipping jobs—but jobs making real, tangible things that real people want and need. Jobs that—to be blunt—Americans, and especially American men, want to do. That means a shift from a purely information-service-consumer economy to a more balanced economy that respects and honors manufacturing. It means moving away from relying almost completely on imports in favor of making things at home—and a return to selling some of what we make overseas. It means no more dumb trade giveaways or tax and regulatory policies that favor bankers and techies while shafting everyone else. It means protecting American industries and jobs when and where beneficial to American workers.
  • We’re also the party committed to ensuring that your hard-earned wage gains won’t be wiped out by rising health care costs. We’re not going to do that by forcing a government takeover of the system, which would make everything worse for everyone but the superrich, who could always afford to buy the best care (assuming high-quality care could survive a complete government takeover). We’re instead going to use government power to make the private market more affordable for routine doctor visits and ordinary care, and create a public backstop to ensure that, in cases of injury or disease, no person or family need worry about how to pay their medical bills.
  • We’re the party of real “meritocracy,” not the phony kind the ruling class dangles to trick you into thinking our system is fair to you and yours. We’re the party that will neither create nor tolerate any impediments whatsoever in the way of your or your children’s rise. Help will be provided where it’s needed, but fairly, impartially. We will never pit race against race, group against group, citizen against citizen.
  • We’re the party of military strength and foreign policy restraint—the party that will protect our country’s interests while minding our own business. America’s days as the world’s arbiter-intervener of first resort must and will end. As a commercial republic whose prosperity depends in part on buying and selling overseas, America must be able to project strength abroad. But we will do so only where and when we must, to protect our interests, which we will define strictly and narrowly.
  • We’re the party of the common man and woman, the ordinary Joe and Jane, the average American—the party of family, faith, and our shared, cherished American way of life. We’re the party that will defend our common ideas of decency, morality, and citizenship. We’re the party that stands in favor of you living and worshiping the way you always have, the way your sacred scripture says and your ancestors taught you. We stand against silly, destructive fads cooked up on university campuses and in big cities to alter and degrade your way of life—and to insult and belittle you in the process.
  • We’re for “progress,” but the real kind: progress in shared wealth and new technologies that benefit all, not just a small elite; progress in building up the dignity and honor of you and your families; progress in the strength and greatness of our shared country; progress toward a future in which America’s central institutions and power centers care about you and fight for you.

Now that’s a party I would enthusiastically vote for and support, and watch as America makes our miraculous Industrial Revolution in the 19th Century lool like small potatoes. This platform would transform first America and then the world. It’s time. And do read the entire article, it’s about the most uplifting political document you’ll see this year.

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock,…

When President Trump left for Ohio on Thursday something interesting happened. The White House staff was photographed outside seeing him off. That’s rare almost to the vanishing point. Maybe you saw it, I didn’t. But I pay little attention to raw news, It’s nearly always wrong, so why clutter your mind. Then today I read in Clarice Feldman’s article in American Thinker that the President said this in Cleveland.

I have a lot of enemies. This may be the last time you see me for a while. I have a lot of very rich enemies. They’re not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it. No other president is gonna do what I do.

Then on Friday afternoon, the DOJ filed civil forfeiture paperwork on two properties, one in Kentucky and one in Cleveland that were financed by PrivatBank, a Ukrainian private bank widely believed to be involved in money laundering. It’s more complex than that oversimplification, of course.

Then the president flew to the resort he owns in the Hamptons, where many fewer people will have access to him than at the White House.

Interesting isn’t it? I find it so. Clarice says that:

It was through the Latvian branch of PrivatBank that the money from Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that hired Hunter Biden for a substantial amount of money, seemingly as a bribe to his father, was paid.

[From Brian Cates] The FBI has raided the offices of Optima Management Group in Cleveland and Miami. The company has ties to Privatize Bank that was founded by Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky also owned Burisma Holdings that hired Devon Archer and Hunter Biden onto the board of directors.

Privat Bank received billions of dollars from the IMF. It is believed that much of the money was laundered and later was embezzled by Kolomoisky. The money was allegedly laundered through shell companies in Cyprus, Belize and the British Virgin Islands. Then much of the money was run through Optima Management Group.

The FBI is very interested in how much money the fund received and where did it go. It has been rumored that Hunter Biden was paid a little over $83,000 a month with laundered funds.

If you are a Democrat, a Deep Stater, or a Conservative, Inc. Republican for that matter this may be the sound of a very big boot coming down with great force. Like the first step in unraveling what many of us have for months been calling a coup. Most of you know the Russian old joke about what you do when you get hold of a loose strand of a pretty woman’s sweater, this is analogous. You’ll have noticed the name of Biden is already deeply involved, there will likely be many more.

Clarice thinks, and I tend to agree, that this is the first step in all the DOJ investigations that have been going on under Barr. It would appear they are ready to move, and have gotten Trump to move to a safer place to safeguard him. These people are (and have been) a serious threat to the United States and are unlikely to look at Supermax with any sort of detachment.

Well, we’ll see but this could be quite the week. The one where we quit saying #two weeks.
