My Early Christmas List to Santa Trump

Indulge me today in a little game.  I know that anything could happen after November 3rd up to and including the apocalypse.  But just for the sake of this post let’s assume that when the dust clears President Trump is clearly the winner of the election and the Republicans squeak out a win in the Senate and the House.  What would be my wish list for the coming four years of the second Trump administration.  Granted that this is the rosiest of scenarios but it is far from unlikely.  So, grant me the premise.

  • First and foremost, give Barr an ultimatum to either produce the reports of the investigations or resign. Either his staff has found crime committed by the Obama holdovers in the FBI and elsewhere or he has an explanation that covers all the outrages we have seen perpetrated over the last five years.  And regardless of whether Barr is the Attorney General or not it must be a priority to clear all the anti-Trump personnel out of the Justice Department.  Even if that depopulates the department it would be the smartest thing to do.  Reforming the FBI is an extremely important goal.  Defanging that agency would benefit everyone.  It is a weapon that can be brought to bear against any innocent American whenever political expediency calls for it.
  • Another priority is to punish those states that allowed Antifa and BLM to terrorize their citizens. What I would envision would be the feds initiating civil and criminal actions against the governors and mayors who were complicit in the protracted unrest that engulfed the lives of their citizens.  Testimony by all the individuals that feel they were harrowed and their lives disrupted and especially those that were assaulted or whose businesses were destroyed.  These are Americans who were treated like targets of a pogrom.  They were singled out based on the color of their skin.  The President should make it a point of pride to get them justice.  Those governors and mayors should be hounded out of office and prosecuted.
  • The President and Congress need to fully fund and swiftly build the Southern Wall. It is important and it is also a morale builder.  It shows the country that the government is taking their wishes seriously.  It’s what got President Trump elected in the first place.  It should not be forgotten.
  • The President needs to continue to appointing federal judges to all the circuit courts in the country as quickly as the openings occur. The power that a corrupt judiciary is able to wield is apparent from the outrageous actions of the federal judges who have hampered the President throughout his first term.  Eliminating the progressive majorities in the 9th Circuit Court and other progressive strongholds should be a priority for Republican presidents whenever the Senate is in their control.
  • The President needs to install an Attorney General who will employ the RICO statute to defund, prosecute and imprison the leadership and all guilty members of Antifa and BLM. The RICO laws were put in place to demolish the mafia.  Antifa and BLM are criminal organizations that have done incalculable harm in this country.  They need to be crushed.
  • The President needs to punish China for COVID and he needs to end the special relationship that has allowed China to monopolize American commerce for decades. China is at best an adversary.  In a lot of ways, it is our mortal enemy.  It needs to be treated as such.  And any American citizens or corporate entities that conspire with China to our detriment need to be severely punished.
  • And finally, I want him to fire Anthony Fauci. That dope has botched this COVID thing like no one could imagine.  I wouldn’t trust him to run a CVS Drug Store never mind the nation’s health.  He really is a dope.

 

Well that’s enough for this Christmas.  Of course, my first present has to happen way in advance of Christmas just to make the other presents possible.  I want a resounding election victory for the President.  So if that isn’t too much to ask, let’s start there.

Are the Bidens For Real?

This whole Hunter Biden hard drive thing is surreal.    In the video link below there is an interview that Steve Crowder did with Rudy Giuliani (minutes 2 to 19 of the clip).  Now Crowder is a comedian on our side of the political divide and being a comedian he’s a little goofy but the interview clarifies some of the history of this computer hard drive.  Giuliani says that Hunter Biden brought it into the repair shop and signed for it.  When the computer was never paid for and was left for a period that exceeded the allotted time allowed it became the property of the repair shop.  The repair shop owner looked at the contents and realized what he had on his hands and contacted people on the Trump side.  Apparently he was a Republican type.  Now that was a piece of luck.  He made a copy of the hard drive and gave the original to the FBI.

Giuliani also says that when this story broke Hunter Biden’s attorney called up the repair shop and asked for the computer back.  The New York Post is a sensationalist publication.  But it is owned by Rupert Murdoch who has a lot to lose if this were a slanderous hoax.  Giuliani states that the validity of the information must have satisfied Murdoch for this story to go forward.

How does someone like Hunter Biden stay alive in the political environment that exists today?  Who collects videos of himself smoking crack and and having sex with prostitutes and puts it on a computer hard drive and leaves it with a computer expert?  How can all this be?  It seems almost too good to be true for the President and his campaign.  And on the same computer are these damning e-mails from Chinese and Ukrainian officials that document the influence peddling that Joe Biden has denied being involved in.

There’s only one reasonable explanation, Hunter Biden is part of a secret right-wing cabal dedicated to guaranteeing President Trump’s re-election.  Either that or he is a total degenerate who cannot avoid the destruction of himself and everyone around him.  Wait a minute.  …..  On second thought I’ll go with that second one.

 

 

The Pitch

Whether the Republican Party, going forward, continues as the home for the people resisting the Woke Jacobins or some other organization represents them, I think it is necessary that they come up with a simple narrative for why people should vote for them.  Rather than the old “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” I think they’re going to have to rebrand.  In sales there is the concept of “the pitch.”  Basically, it is the salesman’s best guess at what he can say to the buyer to close the sale.  One thing any salesman knows is that the attention span of the customer is extremely short.  What is put forth must be the strongest bit of persuasion possible and it needs to be concise.

For this reason, I believe that it is useless to try and win over the Middle and even parts of the Left by waxing poetic about free speech, free enterprise, free trade or even free college.  Some of it will work with some of them and some will work with others but even if they believe you it won’t get their attention.  All of it has already been said by all the frauds on the Left and the Right a million times already.  It’s just background noise at this point.  This won’t get it done.  And it can’t even be President Trump’s 2016 pitch, “Make America Great Again.”  It’s a great pitch and it made him president.  But it’s limited to the Right.  What we need is something that will work on anyone who isn’t woke.  We need this because the Left has unleashed a monster on the country and it shouldn’t be ignored.  It is both a horrible weapon and also a great gift.  They have dropped the mask and they are allowing the regular people on the Right and the Middle and the Left to really see what they intend for all of us.  This is the equivalent of when the Communists took to the streets in Weimar Germany.  It was their endgame and they no longer held back about what they intended and what they were willing to do to get it.

By now there is more than enough documentary evidence available from Minneapolis, Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis and New York.  Packaging it into commercials and posters is child’s play for the campaign teams that the political parties have at their disposal.  All it requires is the slogan needed to sell the voters and convince them that it is in their interest to buy the product, to vote for the program.

Succinctly put, I think it would be something like this, “We are the only ones who can save you and your children from being eaten alive by BLM and Antifa.”  Some might object to “eaten alive.”  Maybe that seems inaccurate.  Sure, I’m a bit on the poetic side.  Say rather, “We are the only ones who can save you and your children from being beaten, robbed and dispossessed by BLM and Antifa.”  Either way I think that is the gist of the pitch.  Forget about freedom, forget about economics.  Stick to the fear of being fed to the howling mob.  I’ve never been in advertising but I was a salesman and I know that the two most powerful emotions that can be invoked in a pitch are greed and fear.  In this pitch, greed doesn’t come into play.  But fear is front and center on this one.  There are videos of the mob smashing, looting and burning down people’s businesses.  We have scenes of them beating and even killing innocent people who didn’t flee from their onslaught.

Basically, if the Republicans truly are too stupid to take advantage of this opportunity then they must simply be replaced by those who aren’t.  The Mid-West is full of Democrat voters who can be convinced that it is in their best interests to stop the madness that is being inflicted upon their neighbors every night on their television screens.

For the people listening the message should be forget the tri-corner hats, stock up on ammunition.

A Graph That Actually Means Something

The polls will always show President Trump (or any Republican) losing in any election.  FUD is just part of their plan.  But apparently their FUD this year is weaker than their FUD in 2016.  Objectively that can’t be good for Joe Biden.  If President Trump is running a half a point ahead of what he did in 2016 he’s probably feeling pretty good about his chances.  Well, Biden needs a rest anyway.

 

 

 

 

How Much Weirder Will It Get?

We are living in a time that, with respect to weirdness, rivals anything in living memory.  We have whole areas of the country that are not only tolerating but actually abetting a violent insurrection on their own soil.  We have the intelligentsia and the various other elite groupings of the country almost monolithically backing an attempt to unseat a legitimately elected President of the United States by illegal actions of the Justice Department and Intelligence agencies of the Federal government.  And finally, we have a bioweapon unleashed by the Chinese and allowed by the Democrat controlled states to disrupt the life and economy of the country right before a presidential election.  All that’s missing is an eruption of walking dead stalking the countryside in search of fresh brains or a flying saucer invasion or an infestation of elephant sized giant ants in the sewers of Portland Oregon.  Scratch that last one.  No one would notice or care if Portland was wiped out by giant ants.  It would be an improvement.

There is a theory that right after the election is decided the rioting will stop and even the COVID hysteria will end.  Depending on the theorist this will or won’t depend on who wins.  Some speculate that if President Trump wins that the rebellion will continue and maybe even increase.  Others say that it ends no matter who wins.

I’m not sure who’s right.  I do know that the radicals have become completely unhinged.  I’m not sure they will disappear if the Democrats take over.  In fact, I think they will become the shock troops to reinforce whatever unconstitutional actions the Democrats proclaim.  If the President wins, he may be faced with this unending street violence into the foreseeable future.  Up till now he has barely intervened in places like Portland and Seattle.  But after the election it doesn’t seem possible that the status quo can continue.  And I’m sure the President wants to end this chaotic disruption of the peace.

So, this is what I think will be after the election.  If the President is re-elected, he has to crush the rebellion.  The correct way this should happen is for the FBI to gather up the ringleaders and prosecute them and those that funded and organized them.  If William Barr is slow to do this then he will have to be replaced.  And it seems we will know almost immediately if this will be necessary.  Barr has failed to prosecute the conspirators of the Coup against the President.  If after the President is re-elected Barr fails to act then he must be immediately dismissed and replaced with someone willing to clean out the Justice Department from top to bottom.  And this new Attorney General will also need to crush Antifa and BLM completely.  And I judge that this can be accomplished, if not easily, then at least after some diligence.

But if Biden wins the White House then the red states are going to have to take action against these groups inside their cities.  Places like Austin, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia will need to be cleaned out by the state governments.  This will be made all the more difficult by the interference that the Justice Department and its components like the FBI will perpetrate in support of the terrorists.  And I further believe that once the federal government is in friendly hands, these terrorist groups will unleash chaos on an even grander scale.  They will issue out of the cities and terrorize the suburbs and countryside.  It may be that this will be the spark that finally starts a counterrevolution.  But it will be mess.

These are my guesses as to what awaits us after the election.  Obviously, I prefer that a second Trump Administration will be the instrument of destruction for the Antifa and BLM vermin.  But either way, I think it is long past time that these anarchists are dragged away and put in prison where they truly belong.  Let’s hope that our leaders have the backbone to get it done.

Jason Whitlock over at OutKick Speaks the Hard Truth About Antifa and BLM

Jason Whitlock is a black sports writer.  He’s gone on his own after working for FoxNews and I think ESPN.  He says what he thinks and doesn’t care about sacred cows of any color.  He’s saved me a buch of time talking about the debate and what was covered up about the riots.  Jason has some good insights.  And he’s unafraid of the outrage he causes.  Good for him.

Chris Wallace, American Media Fiddle During Debate As BLM, Antifa Burn Our Country

 

 

 

29SEP2020 – First Presidential Debate – A Review

The first thing that should be said is that even though Chris Wallace is a lefty creep, he is probably going to be the least offensive of the moderators we can expect during the rest of the debates.  The ones going forward will probably be women from NPR and CNN that will whine and screech about every woman’s issue imaginable.

The format was supposed to be six segments with sometimes more than one question in each segment.  Each candidate was supposed to get two minutes without interruption to answer the question.  Well that didn’t happen.  The President interrupted early and he interrupted often.  But to be fair the lies that Biden was telling deserved to be refuted.  And several of the topics were slanted obviously against the President.

The questions that I remember were about:

  • The Supreme Court Pick
  • COVID
  • The Economy
  • Black Voters
  • Law and Order
  • President Trump’s Tax Returns
  • Climate Change
  • The President’s Ending of Anti-American Indoctrination in the American Government Offices
  • Mail-In Ballots

I would say that the President got the best of the arguments about The Supreme Court Pick, Black Voters, Law and Order, Tax Returns, Climate Change, Anti-American Indoctrination and Mail-In Ballots.  But that leaves COVID and the Economy that weren’t as clear cut.  Biden hammered away at COVID with all he had.  President Trump made his case but that round was more like a tie.  And since that’s a very important issue that needs to be improved on in the next debate.  On the economy both Biden and Wallace exaggerated the economic situation at the end of the Obama administration.  And Biden downplayed how well the economy has recovered after the initial COVID shutdown.  I want to give the President a slight edge on the Economy segment.  So overall I’ll say President Trump won the debate.  And above and beyond the stated topics, the President was able to raise the question of the culpability of Obama and Biden in the Russia-gate scandal and he hammered Biden on Hunter Biden’s activities in the Ukraine and China.

On a personal note I find it nauseating that the moderators still slant the whole proceeding clearly to the Left.  It’s good to see the President stood up for himself and zinged Biden left and right.  Some of my favorite moments were:

  • When Biden said the President was unintelligent and President Trump came back and said that Biden was at the bottom of his class in college and lately couldn’t even remember the name of the town, he was in.
  • When Biden criticized President Trump’s large rallies, the President mocked him saying the Biden rallies typically had about three people attending because no one wanted to attend something so boring.

So, to sum up what I saw:

  • Biden has to be credited with not being brain dead.  Whether chemically enhanced or just reinvigorated he only looked frail not demented.
  • The President vigorously defended himself on all fronts and jabbed Biden on all his weak points.
  • The moderators are going to be nakedly biased for Biden in their questions and their attitudes.
  • The President is going to have to come up with a more coherent COVID story that attacks the Dems for their linkage to China, their ineffective handling of protecting the elderly in the states they govern and the damage their extended lockdowns are doing to people and the economy.

First Debate – Quick First Impressions

Biden was coherent, so I guess the meds are working.  Toward the end he did seem to get a little rattled but not much.  Wallace was biased in favor of Biden but not nearly as blatantly as I expected.

Trump was in rare form.  He was interrupting Biden constantly and taking digs and shots at him left and right.  It was very entertaining.  Biden made up a lot of stuff as expected.  I think the President did what we expected him to do.  Biden held his own.

I think his most effective jabs were about Biden’s record for black Americans.  He talked about the crime bill and he talked about his own release from prison actions.

When it got down to the rioting Wallace protected Biden by stopping the debate before it could all be said.

And finally there were some good digs at Hunter Biden.  Very funny.

I’ll give the President the edge on this one but it was relatively evenly matched.

29SEP2020 – OCF Update

Well, where are we?

Tonight, is the first Presidential Debate.  The level of insanity that will be on display should be breathtaking.  I remember Biden in his debates against Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan.  He never lets truth or even common-sense stand in the way of saying something Biden.  His creepiness should be on full display.  But the big mystery is whether he is coherent or not.  Apparently, there are some drugs that can be used to lift a dementia patient up out of the fog.  If Joe seems sharp, not intelligent but sharp, then we’ll have to assume they’ve got him doped up.  Either that or he dogged it during the whole earlier part of his campaign.  Either way watching the debate should be interesting.

A month or so before Election Day and indications are that voter fraud through mail in ballots is going to be a wholesale business.  It’s going to be interesting to see if the adjudication of this election ends at the Supreme Court or goes way beyond that.  From the things I’m hearing this may turn into a freak show where voting levels go to unheard of levels and the whole process goes off the rails.  That sounds like something that could cause a very serious reaction from both sides.  The Left is already occupying the street in many blue locales.  If unrest occurs in places like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin then armed conflict cannot be ruled out.

Florida has ended the COVID precautions and raised the all clear signal for its citizens.  This should be an interesting moment.  If two or three weeks down the road the daily death rate remains the same it will be an indicator that the other rational areas can do the same.  And it’s none too soon as far as I’m concerned.  The holidays are coming soon and I’d like to think this lockdown will end before Christmas.  New England will be the last to relent but at least if there are some early examples it will build impatience among the sane to pressure the authorities to wake up and smell the coffee.

I keep threatening to do some of my photo retrospectives but the day job has been keeping me busy.  But in about a week, things will definitely improve and I’ll keep some of my promises.  Insects are the first subject.  But hopefully I’ll have a foliage group and some other things too.  And I haven’t forgotten my promise to do a report on what I learned about photographing hummingbirds.

I still have another Olivier Shakespeare play (Othello) to review and I will continue on through the Star Trek series no matter how painful it becomes.  The powers that be are threatening to inflict ShatnerKhan III on an unsuspecting world.  I have been trying to figure out a way to live blog or make a podcast out of it.  Because of this I have purchased multiple copies of the Shatner mask that the Michael Myers character wore during the Halloween movies to allow for anonymity during the video.  This is an indication that ShatnerKhan has now descended into the madness that we knew it eventually would.  But since the food is well worth it, we expect to continue the series well into double figures.

And as promised I’m recruiting some other writers for the site.  And I like the change.  Not only because it takes some of the pressure off me to write but also because other voices make the site more interesting and generally better.  And I’m still looking for more writers.  If you or someone you know has some content to share leave a comment here or send an e-mail to orionscoldfire “at” charter.net and let me know.  And don’t restrict yourself to politics.  Anything interesting will be considered.
