Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
WINNING. Sooooooo much WINNING. – Here’s what is funny about this: I’ve actually had complaints this week that I’ve been focusing too much on all the WINNING President Trump is bringing to our country. So, some people who claim to be fans of President Trump actually are getting tired of all this WINNING. Once again, Trump was right when he said “We will WIN so much, you’ll get tired of all the WINNING.” You can’t make this stuff up.
One more time, every major U.S. stock market index closed at record high levels as investors express their enthusiasm over the President’s Phase I Trade Agreement with China and congress’s final passage of the USMCA. Despite all the false criticism emanating from the corrupt national news media, the markets understand how these trade deals with America’s three largest trading partners will positively impact this country’s economy for years to come.
So, suck it, all you fake, corrupt journalists and contributors at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post. Your efforts, in concert with the Democrat Party, to talk this country into an economic recession that began last summer have, like everything else you have tried to harm this President and what he is accomplishing for America, miserably failed. That could not possibly happen to a nicer bunch of evil minions.
Meanwhile, out in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Governor Baby Killer Blackface KKK Ralph Northam thinks creating a mere recession is just small potatoes. – Northam, along with this Democrat majority in the state assembly, is apparently intent on planting the seeds for a second civil war. That appears to be the only rational interpretation of the moves and public statements Governor Northam and fellow Virginia Democrats have been making in recent weeks.
As the Democrats in the assembly advance a series of gun control bills , assembly members and Northam himself have promised they will result in law enforcement going door to door if necessary to confiscate certain kinds of guns from ordinary citizens. Gun rights groups have very predictably responded by organizing a massive rally in support of the 2nd Amendment to take place in the state capital of Richmond this weekend. The rally will be held Monday as a part of the Virginia Civil Defense League’s (VCDL) annual lobby day.
Governor Northam has reacted harshly – again, very predictably – to the rally, declaring a state of emergency based on only the vaguest of pretenses.
Here’s the text of his declaration:
“Credible intelligence gathered by Virginia’s law enforcement agencies indicates that tens of thousands of advocates plan to converge on Capitol Square for events culminating on January 20, 2020. Available information suggests that a substantial number of these demonstrators are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have as their purpose not peaceful assembly but violence, rioting, and insurrection.”
Have you ever seen so many weasel words crammed into just two sentences?
“Credible intelligence” and “available information” you say? What in the hell does that even mean? And “plan to converge on Capitol Square”? How did you know that? Why, could it be because the VCDL properly applied for a lawful permit to use that public space? You know, like a group of good, law-abiding American citizens, i.e., not Antifa, might do?
And what is a “substantial number” in your mind, Governor? Is it 1,000? 100? 10?
Democrats like Northam never complain when people come from out of state to join in liberal protest marches, or hell, even to vote illegally in their elections. Just so long as they vote Democrat, right? Right.
Clearly, Governor Blackface and his friends in the corrupt news media are attempting to set the narrative for Sunday’s rally as being the sequel to the 2017 Charlottesville fiasco, when a couple of dozen bad actors provided the pretense for the media to smear thousands attending an otherwise peaceful rally as being “white supremacists.” This is how every rally-goer on Sunday will also be portrayed if the media can find one clown wearing a confederate flag patch on his jacket or forming his fingers into what used to be the “ok” sign. So, expect that to happen.
Regardless of what really takes place in Richmond this weekend, Governor KKK will without any question at all attempt to spin it as a rationale to continue pushing for his gun control/confiscation legislation. But he and his fellow Democrats have a real, sticky problem in seeing this effort through to its logical conclusion.
That problem centers on the reality that Virginia is a mostly-rural state. Once you get out of the isolated population centers of Richmond, Arlington and Alexandria, the rest of Virginia is as red as red can be. The state’s 2016 election map looks like a miniature microcosm of the national map, with small islands of blue interspersed amidst a sea of red:
Prior to 2009, Virginia actually was a fairly reliable state for Republicans. But that has all changed with eight years of America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama, and the massive expansion of the D.C.-based federal bureaucracy he inflicted on the nation. Even with Obama’s rapid raising of federal salaries, real estate in the District of Columbia remained too expensive for most bureaucrats, so tens of thousands of them settled across the Potomac in Arlington and Alexandria.
Given that well over 90% of federal bureaucrats are Democrats by nature, that massive emigration of the bureaucracy into Virginia ended up shifting the state’s politics.
Very predictably, those red, rural counties have taken exception to the Democrats’ looming gun grab. At last count, 105 counties and cities in Virginia have now taken the step of declaring themselves second amendment sanctuaries, with local officials promising to defy any efforts by the state government to confiscate firearms within their jurisdictions.
Should Governor Northam and his Democrat minions end up enacting these gun control bills and follow them through to their logical conclusion, many Virginia gun owners will not go quietly, and the country could find itself in a real constitutional crisis. Unless the Democrats begin to moderate what they are doing, they might be sowing the seeds for a second civil war in this country.
Sadly, Governor Northam seems by his actions and words to be perfectly fine with, and maybe even intent on, doing exactly that.
That is all.
