Pelosi, Fellow Dems Prove that Cultural Appropriation is Not a Thing Anymore

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

There comes that “T” word again. – Democrats in congress unveiled their own plan for de-funding the nation’s police departments, couching the plan to create societal chaos all across the nation in the warm and fuzzy language they always use to surround their plans to bring creeping Soviet-style communism to America. Check out this video clip:

There’s that word again: Transform. It was Obama’s code for implementing communism used throughout his 2008 presidential campaign, and it has been repeatedly used by Democrats and their corrupt media toadies ever since.

The Democrat plan is to “transform” local police departments in the very same way that they “transformed” the public schools over the past 40 years: By eliminating excellence and dumbing them down to the lowest common denominator.

You don’t have to believe me: All you have to do is listen closely to what they say themselves. Here, for example, is Minneapolis city council member Lisa Bender this morning on CNN:

“Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”

Did you catch that? The basis for deconstructing and de-funding local police departments is that the expectation of excellent community policing comes from a place of “white privilege.” Now, any sane and rational and patriotic American who actually cares about this country would attempt to address any inequality in community policing by raising the standards in the neighborhoods who are currently being under-served.

But not the Democrats – oh, no. That is just not the Democrat way, after all, thanks to their allegiance to the teachings of Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

No, the Democrat approach is to instead implement policies designed to ensure that literally no part of their communities are in any way safe or secure – thus, making all parts of the community equally awful. It’s all about demonic notions of “fairness” and “equality.”

See how that works?

By the way, that CNN clip is a tailor-made 30-second ad for this Fall’s Trump Campaign. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had an ad up using it by the end of today.

Hey, I’m old enough to remember when the social media outrage mob would have called this “cultural appropriation.”

A bunch of privileged, mostly-white members of congress, most of whom have never set foot in Ghana – where the kente cloth garments they are wearing orginated – taking a knee for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to “honor” George Floyd, a man who also never set foot in Ghana.

So, “cultural appropriation” is obviously not a thing anymore in the wake of the past 2 weeks of demonstrations and looting and burning and rioting. You know, kind of like that whole “social distancing” deal that was all the liberal rage 15 days ago.

By the way, all those members of congress taking the knee? They all live behind walls in high-end communities, have security details and are driven to and from work in limousines. So, if you think that anything they’re planning on doing to you and your communities will have the slightest impact on their personal lives, well, think again.

That is all.

Lightfoot to Wal-Mart: Please Stay so we can do it to you all Over Again in November

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, to be a fly on the wall for this call. – Chicago’s radical Mayor Lori Lightweight, er, Lightfoot refused to allow her police department to effectively put down the mass riots that have taken place in her city over the past 11 days. She also refused to activate the National Guard to provide assistance to the police department before the rioting had done hundreds of millions of dollars in damage and resulted in multiple deaths, over and above the 50-60 murders that take place in her city every month.

Lightfoot and her city council are, to put it simply, active enemies of the people in Chicago, and as such, they are active enemies of the businesses who serve those people. They are radical leftists who care nothing about people’s lives and livelihoods, and everything about obtaining and wielding political power for their own personal gain. That is who and what they are.

So it was that she had a pretty tough story to tell when she held a conference call on Friday with leaders of Wal-Mart and other big retailers whose stores she personally allowed to be looted, vandalized and destroyed in the days since the death of George Floyd. The worthless, subversive Mayor admitted that she “pleaded” with these business leaders not to abandon Chicago. One can only wonder what her messages of assurance might have been, especially to Wal-Mart, which reportedly lost 7 stores to Lightfoot’s own mismanagement.

After the past 11 days, there of course can be no rational business case to be made for Wal-Mart or any other business with the means to get out to remain in Chicago, given that the city’s government has obviously abandoned all pretense of doing anything real to provide civic security. But of course, most of those businesses will reopen, no doubt based on false assurances from Lightfoot, only to see it happen all over again in November after President Donald Trump wins his re-election.

Because that’s coming, and it’s coming in a very big way.

Back in 2018, as the Democrat Party was actively fomenting and staging “abolish ICE” riots in Los Angeles and other Democrat-controlled cities, I wrote about America’s new reality, which is the fact that one of our two major political parties now sees rioting, looting and burning cities as just another tool of politics. Of course, that Party has trended in that direction since the 1960’s, but in modern times its leaders have become quite open and frank about it.

Think about it: Over the past week we have seen the spectacle of Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi participating in the violent demonstrations in front of the White House in which more than 60 Secret Service agents have been injured. We have had the abject refusal by Democrat mayors all over the country to allow their police departments to protect the citizenry and quell the riots. We have seen the mayor of Washington, DC endorse the riots by painting “Black Lives Matter” – the name of one of the domestic terrorist groups who have fomented and conducted the riots – on a two block stretch of 17th Street near the White House.

Even more telling is what we have not heard from Democrat leaders. We have not heard a single one of them condemn the rioting. We have not heard a single one of them disavow their support for Antifa and Black Lives Matter. We have not heard a single one of them say a word about the tragic deaths of a dozen or more black lives, including retired Police Captain David Dorn in St. Louis, as a result of these riots.

Any astute business leader at Wal-Mart or any of the other major retailers who saw their shops destroyed by these Democrat-sponsored riots would summarily reject any appeal from Lightfoot to stick around and go through it all again in a few months. But they will all no doubt accede to her pleas, due mainly to political pressure, even as their insurance and paid security costs skyrocket, and the flight out of the city by most sane people dramatically reduces their customer base in the months and years to come.

Because Democrats destroy everything they touch, and if you’re doing business in Chicago, they’re touching you in a very big way.

That is all.

“De-Fund the Police”: A Cancer on Our Society

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

So, now we’re de-funding the police. That’s the new mantra being pushed by the radical Democrat Party as it moves into what appears to be the end game of Barack Obama’s and Bernie Sanders’ promise to “transform this country.”

The terms “de-fund the police” or “dismantle the police” as it is being used in Minneapolis, are interchangeable. They are simply code for the goal of destabilizing American society by re-segregation and creating so much chaos in the nation’s cities that the government ultimately falls. Members of the Minneapolis city council were all over the place on Thursday spreading that message, along with Brian Fallon, a former spokesman for … wait for it… Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder. What a surprise, right? Fallon is a Director for a radical left group called “Demand Justice,” which has been pushing this concept for years now.

Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender, a self-loathing white leftist, tweeted that ““We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative [that word again] new model of public safety.” She later told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that “she could imagine a scenario where the state’s investigation results in Minneapolis police eventually entering a receivership that restructures the department.”

Councilman Jeremiah Ellison – the son of Antifa and radical Islam-supporting Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison – tweeted that “And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue [the department] back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response.” Of course, “rethinking” public safety and emergency response means there will be none of either.

The concept the council is pushing would segregate the already-segregated city even further into a group of individual “communities,” and give “leaders” in each community the ability to determine how it is policed. This of course means that the poorest, mostly-minority neighborhoods in the city will fall into even more chaos than already exists, as the local race-baiters and gang leaders inevitably rise to seize the controls.

Yeah, you won’t have abusive bad cops coming in and often hassling young black men who are doing nothing wrong – you won’t have cops at all.  There will be no businesses left, because what idiot would try to run a business in a community in which looting will inevitably become an accepted way of life? As we have seen over the last 10 days, it already is accepted in Minneapolis, New York, Chicago and other Democrat-run cities around the country.

This “solution” will be great for the anti-Semite Ilhan Omar, whose district is overwhelmingly Somali Muslim immigrants and already largely a no-go zone run by Sharia Law enforcers. Dismantling the police and turning the department into basically just another social worker program will permanently institutionalize that paradigm and guarantee Omar a lifetime in congress. Meanwhile, the Somali American women who came to this country expecting equal protection under the law will be doomed to lives of subservience and abuse. This is not something that America should allow to exist.

This concept is already in place in France and other parts of Europe, having been pushed by the ballooning Muslim immigrant populations there and acceded to by the leftist/globalist morons who dominate their governments. Cities like Paris, Berlin and London are filled with “no-go” zones to which the police and non-Muslims never travel.

What this is at its base is the re-segregation of the country.  And once you have re-segregated the country fully into “communities” of people who possess little in common and adhere to no national identity, no national government can adequately address everyone’s interests and needs.

This movement is a cancer on our country, and it is metastasizing before our very eyes. If it is allowed to take firm hold in Minneapolis, it will inevitably spread from there.

That is all.

The Official Narrative on the Floyd Killing is Falling Apart

New video of the prelude to the killing of George Floyd by fired Minneapolis police officers emerged on Saturday, and it adds to the growing realization that the official narrative we’ve been fed about that murder simply no longer adds up.

The video shows the police officers involved in the killing working Floyd over in the backseat of their police vehicle, apparently softening him up before they dragged him out onto the street pavement where they finished the job in front of  a crowd that they had to know would capture the incident on their cell phones. Take a look at the second clip below:

In that clip, you can see one cop on the near side of the car scuffling with Floyd as Derek Chauvin – who was arrested and charged with 3rd degree murder on Friday – begins to pull him out on the far side of the vehicle.

So, how does this conflict with the official narrative? Well, to this point we have been told Floyd did not resist and that there was no reason for Chauvin to restrain him by pressing his knee on the back of his neck for more than 8 minutes, until Floyd died.

This video shows one of two possibilities here: Either Floyd was indeed resisting arrest, or he was being brutalized by the cops. One or the other has to be the case here. The first possibility would give the cops some mitigating arguments to the murder charge, though it certainly would not excuse them entirely. That is, unless the reason why Floyd was putting up a fight was because he realized he was about to be killed.

The second possibility raises the potential that this was indeed an act of premeditated murder.

We have no way of knowing which scenario is the correct one. But the long records of complaints and lawsuits brought against at least two of these cops, and the fact that Chauvin and Floyd had actually worked security at a local night club together for several years sure does add to the suspicion that this was not just some random act.

Think about it: The Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area has a population of roughly 3.6 million people. The thought that this high-profile killing involving two men who worked together and likely knew each other is mere coincidence strains credulity to the breaking point.

Up until now, the assumption has been that this killing was just the random spark that lit the flame to the series of national riots that the Democrats/Soros/BLM/Antifa crew were planning to launch this summer anyway. But with all of the odd facts now surrounding this killing, combined with the obviously-orchestrated nature of the riots, you have to wonder if Floyd’s murder was a random event at all.

I have made it a personal practice to stay away from talk about “false flags” that fly around social media in reaction to high-profile events such as this one. But boy, the official narrative around this particular high-profile event is beginning to fall completely apart.

No doubt, many will react by saying there is no way even the Democrats would resort to something so destructive to our national fabric. But ask yourself this: in 2016, would you have believed it if someone told you that the Democrats and the national news media were about to mount a four-year effort push the Russia hoax? Or that they would expand that hoax into an active coup d’etat effort on American soil? Or that, when all of that failed to work, they would hold the nation captive for five months with a completely made-up impeachment hoax? Or that Democrat governors and mayors would intentionally keep people out of work and kill thousands of businesses in their states and cities for no good reason simply to try to impact the November elections?

Sadly, with today’s Democrats and their corrupt media toadies, literally anything is possible.

Stay tuned.

Sunday News Roundup: Musk’s Finest Hour; Trump’s Finest Speech; Dems’ Worst Riots

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Bad timing for the space program. – It had been so long since the U.S. had launched men and women into space that I had forgotten how thrilling it was to watch it happen live. Unfortunately, Saturday’s magnificent, successful launch of the SpaceX Falcoln 9 rocket with two astronauts aboard was overwhelmed by the nationwide riots being promoted by the Democrat Party and its affiliated support groups, Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

From a report at Space.com:

SpaceX founder Elon Musk was choked up with emotion after his company successfully launched astronauts to space for the first time on Saturday (May 30).

“I’m really quite overcome with emotion on this day, so it’s kind of hard to talk, frankly,” Musk said in a post-launch press conference at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida Saturday evening. “It’s been 18 years working towards this goal, so it’s hard to believe that it’s happened.”

Musk’s comments came a few hours after SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from the center’s historic Launch Complex 39A, carrying a Crew Dragon spacecraft with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board.

By successfully launching its new Crew Dragon spacecraft with astronauts on board for the first time, SpaceX became the first private company to launch astronauts for NASA.

[End]

It is not surprising that Musk was overwhelmed with emotion – I had tears in my eyes just watching it from home on my TV.  Through the force of his will and perseverance, he has literally dragged America’s manned space program kicking and screaming back to life.

This, not Tesla, is Musk’s greatest achievement.

It also helps to finally have a willing partner in the White House. – After Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self spent the entire 8 years of his presidency using NASA as little more than a platform to promote climate hysteria, President Donald Trump has returned the agency’s focus to its actual mission of exploring space.

The President was on-hand to view the launch, and gave a grand speech afterwards. Unfortunately, it too was lost amid the news coverage of all the rioting taking place in Democrat-controlled cities. This morning, we are hearing calls from those on the left for the President to speak about those Democrat-organized riots. Obviously those issuing these calls missed yesterday’s speech, during which had this to say on that subject:

Before going further on this exciting day for all America in space, I want to say a few words about the situation in Minnesota. The death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis was a grave tragedy. It should never have happened. It has filled Americans all over the country with horror, anger, and grief.

Yesterday, I spoke to George’s family and expressed the sorrow of our entire nation for their loss. I stand before you as a friend and ally to every American seeking justice and peace. And I stand before you in firm opposition to anyone exploiting this tragedy to loot, rob, attack, and menace. Healing, not hatred; justice, not chaos are the mission at hand. (Applause.)

The police officers involved in this incident have been fired from their jobs. One officer has already been arrested and charged with murder. State and federal authorities are carrying out an investigation to see what further charges may be warranted, including against, sadly, the other three.

In addition, my administration has opened a civil rights investigation, and I have asked the Attorney General and the Justice Department to expedite it.

I understand the pain that people are feeling. We support the right of peaceful protesters, and we hear their pleas. But what we are now seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or with peace.

The memory of George Floyd is being dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists. The violence and vandalism is being led by Antifa and other radical left-wing groups who are terrorizing the innocent, destroying jobs, hurting businesses, and burning down buildings.

The main victims of this horrible, horrible situations are the citizens who live in these once lovely communities. The mobs are devastating the life’s work of good people and destroying their dreams. Right now, America needs creation, not destruction; cooperation, not contempt; security, not anarchy. And there will be no anarchy. Civilization must be cherished, defended, and protected. The voices of law-abiding citizens must be heard, and heard very loudly.

We cannot and must not allow a small group of criminals and vandals to wreck our cities and lay waste to our communities. We must defend the rights of every citizen to live without violence, prejudice, or fear.

We support the overwhelming majority of police officers who are incredible in every way and devoted public servants. They keep our cities safe, protect our communities from gangs and drugs, and risk their own lives for us every day.

No one is more upset than fellow law enforcement officers by the small handful who fail to abide by their oath to serve and protect. My administration will stop mob violence and will stop it cold.

It does not serve the interests of justice or any citizen of any race, color, or creed for the government to give into anarchy, abandon police precincts, or allow communities to be burned to the ground. It won’t happen.

Those making excuses or justifications for violence are not helping the downtrodden, but delivering new anguish and new pain.

From day one of my administration, we have made it a top priority to build up distressed communities and revitalize our crumbling inner cities.

We fought hard with Senator Tim Scott and many others to create Opportunity Zones, helping to draw a surge of new investment to the places in our country that need it most. We must all work together as a society to expand opportunity and to create a future of greater dignity and promise for all of our people. We must forge a partnership with community leaders, local law enforcement, and the faith community to restore hope.

Radical-left criminals, thugs, and others all throughout our country and throughout the world will not be allowed to set communities ablaze. We won’t let it happen. It harms those who have the least. And we will be protecting those who have the least.

The leadership of the National Guard and the Department of Justice are now in close communication with state and city officials in Minnesota. And we’re coordinating our efforts with local law enforcement all across our nation.

In America, justice is never achieved at the hands of an angry mob. I will not allow angry mobs to dominate. It won’t happen. It is essential that we protect the crown jewel of American democracy: the rule of law and our independent system of justice. Every citizen in every community has the right to be safe in their workplace, safe in their homes, and safe in our city streets.

This is the sacred right of all Americans that I am totally determined to defend and will defend. My administration will always stand against violence, mayhem, and disorder.

We will stand with the family of George Floyd with the peaceful protesters and with every law-abiding citizen who wants decency, civility, safety, and security.

We are working toward a more just society, but that means building up, not tearing down; joining hands, not hurling fists; standing in solidarity, not surrendering to hostility.

[End]

It helps to pay attention, people.

The President isn’t the only one who has addressed the riots. – In case you missed it, Attorney General William Barr also made a forceful statement addressing the Democrat riots in a speech delivered Saturday afternoon:

“The greatness of our nation comes from our commitment to the rule of law.

The outrage of our national community about what happened to George Floyd in Minneapolis is real and legitimate. Accountability for his death must be addressed, and is being addressed, through the regular process of our criminal justice system, both at the state and at the federal level. That system is working and moving at exceptional speed. Already initial charges have been filed. That process continues to move forward. Justice will be served.

Unfortunately, with the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities around the country, the voices of peaceful protest are being hijacked by violent radical elements.

Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda.

In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence.

We must have law and order on our streets and in our communities, and it is the responsibility of the local and state leadership, in the first instance, to halt this violence. The Department of Justice (including the FBI, Marshals, ATF, and DEA), and all of our 93 U.S. Attorneys across the country, will support these local efforts and take all action necessary to enforce federal law.

In that regard, it is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting. We will enforce these laws.” (link)

[End]

Should these men really have to repeat all of this for the benefit of lazy leftist talking heads on cable television? They have more important tasks to address today.

Maybe it’s time for a harder touch, Bill. – On Thursday, worthless Marxist New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters he wanted his police to exercise a “light touch” in dealing with that city’s rioters. He was rewarded yesterday with the burning and destruction of over 40 police vehicles as Antifa/BLM-led rioters ran out of control across Manhattan.

Meanwhile, Biden’s handlers support the domestic terrorist rioters.No fewer than 13 of the elder-abusing staff of the Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Farty Joe Biden campaign announced on Saturday that they are giving money to a Democrat-created group that is paying to have the domestic terrorist rioters bailed out of jail in Minneapolis so they can go out and foment more rioting.

Do you understand now why I keep telling you that these are Democrat Party riots? How much more proof do you need?

Let’s repeat this one more time in bullet-point format:

  • The riots are clearly being organized by Antifa and BLM;
  • Both Antifa and BLM were created by and function as adjuncts to the Democrat Party;
  • Both Antifa and BLM receive the vast majority of their funding from Democrat/Soros front groups;
  • The riots are taking place in Democrat-controlled cities with Democrat-controlled police forces that refuse to crack down on the rioters in any effective way;
  • The Democrat Mayor of St. Paul told the press on Saturday that EVERY rioter arrested  by his police on Friday night was from out of state – Antifa’s and BLM’s modus operandi;
  • The Democrat Governor of Minnesota told the press on Saturday that he estimates that 80% of the rioters are from out of state – Antifa’s and BLM’s calling card;
  • Now we have Democrats paying to get the rioters released from jail so they can go out and riot some more.

There. Are we clear now?

Riots: Democrats/Corrupt News Media Mount Their Most Despicable Hoax Narrative Yet

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Those of you who pay attention no doubt noticed that the narrative being pushed about the national riots shifted early Saturday morning from “these are just peaceful people who need to be heard,” to “all of this violence is being pushed by white nationalists.” Obviously a memo went out from the DNC or Soros headquarters telling every shameless leftist in the country to push this latest hoax.

That despicable, utterly false narrative was pushed all over cable news, including Fox; it was pushed by depraved Democrat members of congress; it was pushed by feckless Minnesota Governor Tim Walz; it was pushed by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and pretty much every leftist talking head on television. It was pushed despite the lack of a shred of evidence to support it; it was pushed despite the statement by U.S. Attorney General William Barr making it clear that DOJ has intelligence indicating that the riots have been organized by Antifa; and it continued to be pushed well into the night despite a flood of video proof of the involvement of not only Antifa, but Black Lives Matter agitators as well.

It is the most despicable hoax narrative these depraved and despicable people have ever mounted, more despicable even than the Russia hoax and the Impeachment hoax.

You don’t have to believe me about this: All you have to believe is your own lyin’ eyes. Let’s go to the videotape.

See if you can spot the “white supremacists” in this one from Houston:

What about all these “white supremacists” in Nashville?

Don’t see them? Well, see if you can find the “white supremacists” in this cut from Seattle:

Surely they must be there, right? I mean, Maxine Waters and Brian Stelter keep saying they are.

Ok, well, maybe the videos just move too fast for us. See if you can spot the “white supremacists” in this still shot of a gang that nearly beat a Dallas store owner to death on the street overnight:

Can’t see them? Well, here’s a video of the same savage incident. Surely they must be in there somewhere:

Maybe all the “white supremacists” were working in Cleveland. See if you can spot them in this gang that assaulted firemen who were trying to put out fires there:

No? Nothing? Ok, well, maybe all the “white supremacists” decided to go right to the source and attack the White House. Let’s take a look:

Man, these “white supremacists” sure are good at disguising themselves, aren’t they? But you know they’re in there somewhere because Jake Tapper and Rachel Maddow and Donna Brazile surely wouldn’t lie, would they?

Hey, here’s a suspicious looking white guy. But – oops – he’s clearly Antifa:

I could go on and on an on with this because there are literally thousands of clips just like these running all over Twitter and other social media platforms today.

The people pushing this “white supremacist” narrative appear to be actively attempting to stoke a race war in our country for crass, shameful partisan political reasons. It is no accident that every city in which these riots are taking place are run by Democrat political machines. It is no accident that the two groups fomenting these riots – Antifa and BLM – were created by the Democrat Party and funded by Democrat Party affiliate groups and front groups for George Soros.

America’s institutions and freedoms have been under constant assault from the Democrat Party for many decades now, really since that Party was created. Now, the Democrat Party has taken that war against America to the streets of our major cities.

This is unconscionable to civilized human beings. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here. After yesterday, how can you be sure they have a conscience?

Oh, hey: Maybe these are the “white supremacists” we keep hearing about:

Larry Schweikart: From DemPanic to DemSaster

Guest Piece by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart

Poor old Joe Biden (Demented Biteme, if you follow my Twitter nicknames at @larryschweikart). He already had a weak hand. Heck, he had a hand full of the Bicycle trademark cards it was so bad.

It just got worse.

Rioters (yes folks, it’s a riot when “protestors” burn buildings, hurt people, and chase police out of a precinct) in Minneapolis have now made Trump the “Law and Order” candidate while simultaneously giving him a platform to woo black voters even more. How does that work, you ask?

Trump had already sent the DOJ into the murder investigation of George Floyd before a single Auto Zone was torched. Indeed, not a single major conservative voice dissented from seeing Floyd’s murderer cop prosecuted. Rush Limbaugh called it mindless. “What policy is there anywhere that mandates that kind of treatment of a suspect or prisoner who is totally under control?” The cop simply killed the guy. “There’s no other way to describe what happened.”

President Trump likewise chimed in. “At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation of the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd,” and he called for “this investigation to be expedited.” Believe me, if there is a determination that—as it seems—this was murder, Trump will make a White House announcement and look for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, as well as numerous other black leaders, to be present when he does so.

But not only will it be impossible for anyone except from the insane Blind Lemon Don (Don Lemon) or PsychoJoe Scarborough to try to blame Trump, he will be rightly seen as attempting to right a wrong, while at the same time Trump appears to be the only one also supporting the (often black-owned) businesses that are being torched.

This has deep roots in all lawful citizens’ psyche (not just whites’). It is the “Law and Order” moment, akin to what drove large numbers of voters to vote for Richard Nixon in 1968. Perhaps they did not like Tricky Dick, but they knew that the anarchy and lawlessness exploding throughout the country had to end.

Trump now is in a position unimagined just six months ago of attracting not just more black voters than in 2016, but possibly a lot more. Already multiple polls had him swinging between 16% and 22% black approval. However, in all polls, there is a growing number of blacks who “don’t know” or “don’t care” who wins. I submit that most of these do know and care, but they don’t want to say they won’t be voting Democrat. Some 5-8% may stay home in 2020, while Trump will gain at least an additional 3% over his 2016 levels. This means the real black “vote” for Trump will be about 11% plus another 2-4% (i.e., half of the stay-at-home, which equals a half-vote for each candidate). That would put Trump in the 13%–15% range.

But that was before Minneapolis. Remember in 1932 blacks did not vote for Franklin Roosevelt. It took four years of winning them over. The same, I suspect, is true for Trump. The 2020 election may be his “1936″ moment.

Is there other evidence for this? Absolutely.

The most important evidence comes from the low numbers of blacks who support Demented Biteme. One poll had the number at 84%, another at only 74%!! Now, before you say, “Schweikart, that’s a lot,” remember that in 2016 Hillary Clinton lost carrying 88% of the black vote. Please tell me how Biden wins carrying between 4 and 14% less.

The most interesting thing about the impending DemSaster is that it seems inevitable. They can’t replace Demented Biteme. (If they could, you would never see polls showing Biteme defeating Trump. Quite the contrary, they would show him as weak, and needing to be replaced). No matter who Biteme picks as his veep candidate, he’s finished. How do I know this?

Because no one wants to be his veep, even though most suspect they would be elevated to the POTUS job before Demented Biteme could locate his teeth. Even with that, no one wants to be associated with a sure loser.

Meanwhile, the country is opening up, the economy even looks like may roar back. Americans’ savings levels were 33% higher in March, as I predicted. (With stores and entertainment closed, there was nothing to spend money on). Once unleashed, Americans are going to go on a buying spree.

The DemPanic is over. The DemSaster is about to begin.

Pew Research Center Report Shows Danger of Living in Democrat-Controlled Areas

The Evening Campaign Update

Living in a Democrat congressional district can be very hazardous to your health. That has to be the main takeaway from a report issued on Tuesday by the Pew Research Center.

The report, titled “Coronavirus death toll is heavily concentrated in Democratic congressional districts,” demonstrates that “Of the 44 hardest-hit congressional districts – the top 10% in terms of deaths – 41 are represented by Democrats, while three are represented by Republicans.” Pew’s researchers also found that “nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress.”

This is stunning data, but it should surprise no one. It is completely in line with the map below, compiled late last week by USAFACTS.org:

The data underlying this map illustrated that roughly 1/3rd of all U.S. Wuhan Virus deaths have taken place in each of the green, yellow and red areas. In other words, fully 2/3rds of all deaths have occurred in large cities and metro areas in the northeast and midwest. All of those areas are dominated by Democrat politicians. These are areas like New York City, Newark, Boston, Chicago and Detroit, where people are packed in more closely together and in which thousands continued to ride public transportation petri dishes to and from work throughout this viral outbreak, thanks to failed leadership by their governors and mayors.

Let’s also remember that it wasn’t Republican politicians who made the ghoulish decisions to send infected seniors back into their nursing homes where they infected thousands more. Those decisions were the exclusive province of Democrats like Andrew Cuomo and Phil Murphy and J.B. Pritzker and Gretchen Whitmer.

Desperate to find some solace in the stark reality of this Pew report, the leftist perpetual outrage crowd on Twitter tried and failed to make some hay out of this chart earlier today:

Obviously, when 80% of the deaths take place in your party’s districts in the first place, those districts are going to see a more rapid decline rate once the epidemic starts to fade. This isn’t exactly rocket science here, folks. The numbers are what they are, and to their credit, the liberals who run the Pew Center didn’t make much effort to cover for their fellow Democrats in this report.

That is all.

Hydroxychloroquine: A Texas Family Doc Debunks Democrat/Media HCQ Myths

Guest Piece by Dr. A.B. Spence, MD

Subject: Hydroxychloroquine and the curious case of it becoming dangerous

I’m a retired (on October 1, 2019) Family Practitioner with 40 years of experience on what is now called the front lines of medical practice. I never considered myself a warrior or hero during the flu seasons, including the H1N1 epidemic, but I’m fine and dandy with those terms being used to describe my colleagues and all the other medical staff and personnel that are confronting this awful Chinese virus daily since it was unleashed on our shores a few months ago.

At age 70 and with what I suppose is a comorbidity of rheumatoid arthritis and taking the miracle drug Humira, an immunosuppressant, if I were still in practice at this time I would unquestionably be taking Hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic measure. There is anecdotal evidence that it can help resist or prevent the spread of Covid 19, and in many cases it has been shown to successfully treat Covid patients. It’s also one of the safest prescribed medications a person can take.

At least it was prior to President Trump expressing hope a couple of months ago that it could be helpful in treating Covid 19. Then it became a dangerous drug, poisonous, that would kill a lot of people with cardiac arrhythmias or whatever. And as proof the media told us about an old fella that died after guzzling an industrial fish tank cleaner that contained chloroquine as an ingredient. Somewhere Darwin simply smiled knowingly on that report.

As I researched hydroxychloroquine in the early days of the pandemic, I couldn’t find one documented case of a person dying from a cardiac arrhythmia. And this covered over 60 years of the drug being used as a treatment of and prophylaxis against malaria, both short term and long term usage. All of you reading this know of the millions of dosages given to certain people with autoimmune diseases that successfully take HCQ with no untoward reactions.

The word “anecdotal”, as it applied to Hydroxychloroquine, took on a different meaning also. In this case it is used in a demeaning manner as it wasn’t “science.” It hasn’t been proven to be effective without a shadow of doubt. No double blind or whatever studies have been done with HCQ to prove it’s 100% effective in dealing with Chinese virus. And on and on.

I can assure you that the medical profession has prescribed drugs and therapies forever based on anecdotal evidence that suggest off label treatments may be helpful for certain diseases. Most or possibly all with greater risk versus benefit profiles than HCQ and Corona Virus.

And if you think about it, the country’s entire response to the Chinese virus, the lockdowns, the masks, the gloves, the fear of contaminated surfaces, the social distancing, the closing of “nonessential” businesses, the disastrous school closings, the destruction of our best ever economy, the slaughter of thousands of our most frail senior citizens in nursing homes by certain Democrat governors (I’m looking at you Cuomo and Murphy) have been and continue to be based on anecdotal evidence of how the virus spreads, who is most at risk, how to treat it, etc. In these instances it’s referred to as “science.”

Every time I hear a leftist power hungry governor, mayor, judge, representative, senator, or medical bureaucrat say they’re going to “follow the science” to keep ruining our economy I want to vomit.

With that I I’ll stop. Feeling a bit nauseous.

A. B. Spence, M.D.
