Discussion Post – 9.30.2020

When President Trump was judged the winner of last night’s debate with Chris Wallace and Joe Biden by 66% of the Telemundo viewers, you know he was the clear winner in public perception, which is the only measure that matters.

Well, this figures. There’s a debate tonight and I’m stuck in the hospital with what appears to be a fairly minor heart issue. I’m hoping to be back in the saddle tomorrow, but this will be the only post for today. So use it wisely.

Bartiromo: No Justice from Barr and Durham

I’ve been debating all day about what, if anything, to write about this morning’s news from Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that her sources – who have been pretty reliable – are now telling her that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham have now decided that we are too close to the election for any indictments or reports to be issued prior to Election Day. Which of course is exactly what I told you to expect to be the case on Friday.

Using this excuse to hold up the execution of justice is itself a political decision and an intervention into the election on behalf of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden ticket, the preferred ticket of the Deep State. Let’s also point out that the one and only reason we have gotten “too close” to election day is due to the incessant delay and stalling by Barr and Durham themselves.

The incessant delays by Barr/Durham have been matched by the incessant delays by Lindsey Graham in his stewardship of the Senate Judiciary Committee and its activities since January 2019. Graham appeared on Bartiromo’s show this morning, bragging like a little banty rooster about how tough he’s gonna be on James Comey when he finally, at long last appears before the Committee to testify on Wednesday. Graham was practically wetting himself with pride as he informed Bartiromo and her viewers that he has also made a deal for Andrew McCabe to testify on October 6, and is “negotiating” with Peter Strzok to grace the committee with his presence later in October.

And…so what? After taking all this testimony, then what happens? Had Graham done all of this a year ago when he should have, he’d have been able to collate all the testimony, roll it into a formal report and make it public for voters to consume and consider well in advance of the election. But now, there is no time for any of that, and if Biden/Harris Harris/Biden win in November, it all gets washed away in any event, regardless of which party controls the Senate, which has been Graham’s grand plan all along.

The same will happen with Durham’s work in the event of a Biden victory, and if President Trump is elected to a second term, Durham and Barr will just keep finding excuses to delay and do nothing until the President becomes fed up with them both and replaces them. Given that the only new AG the senate would be willing to approve would be another Swampy guy just like Barr, that wouldn’t make any difference in the ultimate outcome.

The ultimate outcome is this: Trump is a man alone, and the Swamp can always outlast him. It’s time for all of us to give up on any notion that the Obama people who executed a coup d’ etat on American soil will ever be held accountable and to just focus on other matters.

That focus need to be on each and every one of us getting out and voting for Donald Trump, and against anyone with a D next to their name. Yes, that even includes the D running against Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, because as much of a worthless snake as Graham is, he is still light years superior to any Democrat.

The multi-tiered system of justice is too ingrained at the DOJ for any one president to cure, but what President Trump has achieved in spite of its existence and constant attacks on him and his administration has been far too sea-changing to give up now.

Even Barr has his usefulness despite his betrayal on Obamagate. His department continues to do yeoman’s work on disrupting and prosecuting human trafficking networks, arresting and prosecuting domestic terrorists and seeking out and disrupting Democrat vote fraud activities. And he’s getting all of that done with a worthless hack like Christopher Wray running the FBI. Just think of how much more he will be able to do post-election when Wray is fired and replaced with someone who is hopefully competent.

Keep your chin up and get out and vote and encourage everyone you know to do the same. If there is to be no justice from the Deep State, then we should ensure they get no peace for the next four years, and then for every four years after that until they have finally been rooted out.

We are engaged in a long, twilight struggle for the soul of this country, and it’s a fight we cannot afford to lose.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Dems in a Panic as Rioting, Voter Fraud Schemes Crash and Burn

A tale of two campaigns… – Below is the scene of Saturday’s Trump rally in Pennsylvania:

A stunning outpouring of support.

Meanwhile, Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester called a lid on his day by 9:00 a.m. ET, with just 38 days left before Election Day. It was the 11th day on which he has done that during September.

Thus, it again fell to his wife Jill to conduct his campaign’s daily pretend rally. Here is an actual, real, true photo of that backyard affair:

Hey, there were 8 people there! That’s five more than Mrs. Biden spoke to on Friday.

You could truly never make this stuff up, folks.

Biden did make a TelePrompter speech late in the day after waking up from his second nap, though. Watch as he claims to have first come to the U.S. Senate “180 years ago”:

My goodness. This is just elder abuse. People should be prosecuted for this.

Want to know why Democrats who spent several months scaring the hell out of their voters against voting in person because of the ‘Rona are now panicking and desperately urging them to rush out to their local polling places? Presidential Advisor Jason Miller described it pretty well in a series of Saturday tweets:

Here’s the rest of the text from those tweets:

2/ Turnout matters. In North Carolina, 78% of the total ballots cast by modeled Democrats come from their In-The-Bank universe, meaning most of their returns are coming from base Democrat voters who we already expected to vote…

3/ By comparison, in NC just 65% of modeled Republican votes are coming from our In-The-Bank universe. This means that as a %, GOPers are doing a much better job pushing low turnout voters to return their ballots than Dems. I can’t overstate how critical this advantage is!

4/ How big is the coming Trump Election Day tsunami? In North Carolina, there are 754,000 voters that voted on Election Day in 2016 and 2018 that haven’t requested absentees or voted yet. There is a GOP – DEM party advantage with these voters of +8% (39/31)…

5/ In one recent poll, 91% of Republican voters this cycle preferred to vote in-person early or on Election Day, so President Trump’s supporters are definitely showing up on Nov. 3rd!

6/ MSM snoozing on the fact National Dems aren’t getting the early absentee/voting numbers they need to offset Trump’s Election Day avalanche, but the real buried lede is that National D’s have scared the shit out of their own voters to avoid E-Day voting…

7/ It’s too late for National Democrats and the National Media to switch up their fear mongering and tell folks it’s safe to hop on a packed bus and receive a free lunch from a stranger in the middle of a global pandemic on November 3rd…

8/ Forget boxed lunches – National Democrats have boxed themselves in by telling voters to ignore experts like Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx as to the safety of Election Day voting, and they’re desperate to now convince voters Nov. 3 voting is ok!

9/ One other biggie: the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Governor of Nevada, that Sisolak character, has really stepped in it with his unrequested live ballot scheme…

10/ Due to Nevada switching to an unrequested mail-in ballot scheme that presents all sorts of potential for fraud and abuse, 82% of voters we’ve surveyed indicated they plan on voting in-person this year, and that’s not even the biggest detail…

11/ Nevada Dems have lost tens of thousands of voters who have left the state to find work elsewhere because their incompetent Clubhouse Governor has kept the state locked down. If you’re a Democrat who has moved out of Nevada, you ain’t voting there in-person on Election Day.

[End]

The Democrats are in a real quandary. They spent so much time and energy telegraphing their plans to steal the election via voter fraud after Election Day that the GOP has now geared up to effectively police and challenge those operations. As we have seen this past week, the Department of Justice is already discovering and intercepting those efforts.

What happened here is that the Democrats had assumed they would be able to replicate the “vote harvesting” fraud that allowed them to flip 7 Republican congressional seats in California in 2018 all over the country this year. They were thus perfectly willing to let President Trump roll up a gigantic Election Day margin, because they believed the Republicans in every state in 2020 would be as asleep and inept as California Republicans were in 2018.

Ooops.

Now that they realize that is not going to be the case, they know that their Unfrozen Caveman Candidate must be very, very close when we all go to bed on Election Night if their fraud efforts are to have any hope of stealing the presidency.

That’s what this current panic is all about, and it. is. glorious.

Meanwhile, the Democrat-sponsored riots continued to grow. – Interestingly, the police in Portland were actually allowed by communist Mayor Ted Wheeler to fight back a little bit Saturday night:

Cool. More scenes from Portland depravity:

In Seattle, while Biden voters were rioting and setting fires in the CHAZ area, some idiot was burning donuts and hitting people with his car:

In Los Angeles, one Democrat rioter got hit by a pickup:

In Louisville, the Unitarian Church continues to harbor rioting criminals:

No doubt that church’s leaders are loyal Biden voters.

With public sympathy for the domestic terrorist Black Lives Matter organization now plummeting – much like the NFL and NBA TV ratings – it is becoming increasingly apparent that this is a really bad tactic on the part the Democrat Party and Biden Campaign.

In a sane world, one might expect cooler heads to start prevailing among the Democrat leadership. But the Democrat Party today is anything but a sane world.

Why the Senate Should Confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett This Week

“I clerked for Justice Scalia more than 20 years ago, and the lessons I learned still resonate. His judicial philosophy is mine, too. A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers, and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they might hold…I love the United States, and I love the United States Constitution.” – Judge Amy Coney Barrett yesterday.

That 100 word statement describes in a nutshell why Democrats and their America-hating toadies in the corrupt news media hate Judge Amy Coney Barrett and will do anything they can come up with to smear and slander her. The Constitution, and a strict interpretation of its actual words, has been anathema to the Democrat Party since Woodrow Wilson was elected in 1912. It is in fact a bane on that Party’s very existence.

With Senate Democrats lining up to announce they will not only oppose her nomination, but that they will also refuse to even meet with her when she makes the traditional courtesy visits to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other key senators, Lindsey Graham announced on Saturday that his committee hearings on Judge Barrett’s nomination will start on October 12. If Graham is saying that publicly, then that means he has the sign-off from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to proceed with those hearings.

My only question is, why? Why are Senate Republicans agreeing to hold committee hearings at all on a nomination whose ultimate outcome is a fait accompli? No Democrat will support Barrett’s confirmation. Joe Manchin will make noises about doing that, but he will ultimately allow Chuck Schumer to bully him one more time into marching along with the rest of the Democrat Senate fascists, because that is what Joe Manchin does.

Meanwhile, with Lisa Murkowski now coming around in the face of a primary threat from Sara Palin, only one Republican Senator, Susan Collins (of course), is even implying she might not support Barrett’s confirmation before Election Day. Mitt Romney may ultimately fink out and cast his wormy lot with the Democrats just as he did in their impeachment scam, but that won’t be enough.

Mitch McConnell has the votes to confirm Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday. That would be the logical thing to do in this case since the Court convenes for its 2020-21 session on the first Monday in October, just 8 days from now. The goal of the U.S. Senate should always be that it acts as expeditiously as possible to ensure the Court always has its full compliment of 9 justices.

But what about the vetting process? Good lord, Judge Barrett was confirmed to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals just three years ago, and was thoroughly vetted at that time. She even received the confirmation votes of 3 Democrats – along with every Senate Republican, including Collins and Murkowski (Romney was not in the Senate in 2017) – for that high profile appointment. There is literally no valid reason at all for the Judiciary Committee to go through that process all over again.

The Democrats desperately want these hearings for the sole reason that they would then be able to create the same sort of character assassination circus that they did with Brett Kavanaugh and, to a slightly lesser extent, Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first two nominees. McConnell has exactly zero obligation or duty to provide the Democrats that platform.

Many Republicans argue that the creation of another confirmation hearing slander circus would be bad for the Democrats politically, and that’s probably true. But this is a woman’s life we are talking about here. Politics should not be the main consideration. Judge Barrett is a wife and mother of 7 children, children who should not be subjected to the kind of abuse and smearing the Democrats and their activists will throw at them and their mother in the lead-up to and conduct of such hearings.

Judge Barrett is an extremely well-qualified jurist who has led an exemplary American life. There are no valid arguments to make otherwise. She also has already very recently been vetted and confirmed to a seat on a U.S. Appellate Court by the U.S. Senate.

The Judiciary Committee hearing should be cancelled. Judge Barrett should be confirmed this week and seated on the Court when it convenes on the First Monday in October.

That is all.

DBDailyUpdate is experiencing another record-setting traffic month in September, up 300% from a year ago. Thanks to all of you who have been with me for months and years, and those newcomers who have recently discovered this site.

Yesterday, Joe Biden started a speech by saying he “first came to the Senate 180 years ago.” Not kidding.

Gavin Newsom’s Unbridled Energy Hubris

Three big oil and gas-related stories this week were all interrelated with one another, though few really understand that to be the case. Those stories were:

 

 

For Governor Newsom, banning hydraulic fracturing – or “fracking” as it has come to be called – in his state is a relatively simple matter in what has become, for all intents and purposes, a one-party state. All he has to do is convince his overwhelming majorities in both houses of California’s state assembly to pass a bill mandating that all fracking operations cease within the state’s borders by a date certain.

Such a move would of course eliminate thousands of oil and gas-related jobs in the state, but most of those are concentrated in Republican Kern County and the surrounding parts of the Central Valley, over which the assembly’s Democrats would have little concern. Besides, they can all just respond to Republican and industry complaints with the Obama-era pretense that all those lost jobs and more will be made up by the heavily-subsidized wind and solar industries. It will be akin to former President Obama telling West Virginia coal miners and Ohio steel workers that their jobs are never coming back and they should all go learn to code.

Replacing the state’s millions of gas and diesel autos with electric vehicles will be far more complicated. Newsom’s order gets that ball rolling by requiring the California Air Resources Board to implement the phaseout of new gas-powered cars and light trucks in the coming years, and also require medium and heavy-duty trucks to be zero-emission by 2045 where possible. Sounds simple, right?

But here’s the thing about all of that: The generation and provision of energy is basically a zero-sum game. When you ban one energy source, you must figure out a way to generate the same amount of energy by another source. You either do that or you accept the reality that energy will become scarce, and thus far more expensive so that consumers demand less of it, and write off the negative economic consequences that will inevitably result.

Saturday News Roundup: Biden Camp Reeks of Desperation as Trump Preps to Tilt the Court for a Generation

Here is what CNN and MSNBC do every time they see a protest with the potential for turning violent and destructive:

Image may contain: one or more people and fire

Just thought it was a good time to remind readers of that fact.

Time to hook him back up to that IV in the basement. – The Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Candidate needed a long nap on Friday so his elder-abusing handlers called a lid on the day by 11:00 ET. It marked the 10th day in the first 25 days of September on which the elderly, declining Biden became so tired after a public outing that he had to retreat back to his basement lair.

Because Gropey Joe McNastyFinger was not able, Jill Biden got the assignment of making the campaign’s speech of the day before an imaginary audience. Friday’s event was apparently held in someone’s back yard, and featured a stack of beer kegs as a back drop. No really, I’m not kidding:

Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor

Here is a more fulsome view of that back yard event, so you can see that she is literally speaking to virtually no one:

That is a scene of utter failure and desperation. The Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign truly is a campaign that never was.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump was all over the damn place, visiting three different states in about 16 hours, and holding massive rallies in both Jacksonville and Virginia. Here are some of those scenes:

Magnificent. That’s America.

The corrupt news media and its self-immolating polling establishment expect you to believe that the guy who spends his afternoons napping and having fluids injected is way ahead of the incumbent who attracts these massive outpourings of support everywhere he goes. Think about that for a minute: Has our country ever seen a losing presidential contender who could attract such crowds?

Really and truly: The media is brainwashing you to believe that the Trump campaign is in the same losing position that Jimmy Carter was in in 1980; that Walter Mondale was in in 1984; that Bob Dole was in in 1996; that John McCain was in in 2008. Those who are baby boomers like me will remember the absolutely moribund nature of those losing campaigns and their inability to fill any facility larger than a jr. high gymnasium.

Trump reportedly had 35,000 people lined up trying to get into his Jacksonville event yesterday, and over 20,000 trying to see him in Virginia, which has become a blue state in recent election cycles. Do you really believe that is a sign of a losing campaign, especially when contrasted to the scenes of emptiness and desperation the Biden campaign creates every day?

Please. The very fact that he is taking time to hold a rally in Virginia tells us that his campaign’s polling numbers lead them to believe that “blue” state is in play. And if Virginia is in play, then so are a bunch of other “blue” states.

During his Jacksonville rally, President Trump said that “I think we’re ahead; like, by a lot.” The media and Democrats immediately leapt to ridicule that statement, but think back on the last five years and how many times Donald Trump has made a seemingly absurd prediction or statement that later turned out to have been absolutely true? It has been one of the most consistent features of his campaigns and presidency, in fact.

Another of the most consistent features of his presidency has been the President’s keeping the promises he made during his 2016 campaign. One of those promises was to nominate consistently constitutionalist judges to the federal judiciary. Boy, has he kept that one, and with the able assistance of Mitch McConnell, he has kept it in record numbers.

Today, President Trump will reportedly nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a supremely-qualified Appellate Court Judge, to replace the departed Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Barrett is by all accounts a wonderful jurist and mother who has led an upstanding and extremely-accomplished life.

Naturally, the leftwing Perpetual Outrage Crowd on Twitter leapt to start the process of attacking her and her children as soon as the reports of her pending nomination started leaking Friday afternoon. Here is Senator Josh Hawley responding to on example of the awfulness:

For those unaware, Judge Barrett  is a devout Catholic and the mother of 7 children, including two who she adopted from the impoverished nation of Haiti. Repugnant leftists like this one – and no doubt many Democrat politicians as well – will no doubt attack her for her faith and attack her children as well.

The next few weeks are going to be very ugly. For the radical left, this seat on the Supreme Court is literally the entire war for the soul of America, because the seating of a third Trump nominee will create a constitutionalist majority on the Court that would make the obviously compromised John Roberts completely irrelevant.

For the left, this is war. Do not kid yourselves otherwise.

I’m going to forego the daily riot update for today. It will resume tomorrow.

Today, I want to close with this series of tweets issued last night by leading Democrat Lanny Davis, a corrupt DC lawyer who has toadied for the Clintons for the last quarter of a century now:

Davis goes on in this vein for another 10 tweets or so. Obviously, he’s just speaking for himself, and equally obviously, pretty much everything he says is utter nonsense. Does anyone really think companies like Costco, Starbucks, Apple and Microsoft would just close up shop across the entirety of the U.S. Southwest, Midwest and South?

Please. We’d still get to keep our I-Phone addictions, plus we would get Vegas!

It’s a deal, Lanny – go for it!
