CBS Host on PA Focus Group: If You’re Team Trump, This Is Very Good News for You
Matt Vespa|Posted: Jan 30, 2020 4:45 PM


Pennsylvania might be put out of reach for Democrats due to the Democrat’s hatred of fracking. I know it’s still early, but as of now—it’s quite possible that either Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders could be the 2020 nominee. Okay—maybe Sanders is the only real contender; Warren has been bleeding liberal voters. Both candidates are for fracking bans, which will destroy hundreds of thousands of jobs in the Rust Belt. As The New York Times noted in a lengthy post, even those in Keystone State who are trying to curb fracking, know that a universal ban will cost Democrats Pennsylvania and the 2020 election. Union leaders are also signaling that if either Warren or Sanders are nominated, they’re telling their members to sit out the election, a great many will probably vote for Trump.

Without Pennsylvania, the Democrats’ path to the White House becomes increasingly more difficult. It may even be the ballgame. Yet, besides fracking and natural gas is a potential death trap for Democrats in the state, we have a women-based focused group also giving Trump high praise. They noted the national security accomplishments, like killing Iran’s top terrorist Maj. Gen. Qasam Soleimani. More importantly, they noted the increase in the size of their portfolios and one woman noted that she will have no problem paying her taxes this year, thanks to the Trump economy.

https://youtu.be/v9plE7_s_Fs

All of the women in the focus group conducted by CBS News were confident that Trump would win re-elected in 2020. With that feedback from the suburbs, you have to be feeling good, which is exactly what CBS This Morning host Gayle King said at the end of the segment.

Democrats are running as the anti-Trump. Everything the president does is bad. Everything they will do would be the opposition, but that doesn’t make it better. And they have to make the case the wrecking the Trump economy, which is booming and replacing it with their regulation-heavy, a high-tax alternative would be better for job creation and growth. Spoiler: it wouldn’t. The 2020 Democratic agenda only caters to the snobby liberal elites of the Acela Corridor. Virtually none of the 2020 field know working people. If they do, they’re peddling ideas, like Medicare for All, which will torch the wallets of America’s working-class and take away their health care benefits. Yeah, as of now, Trump is a lock to win again.

Democrats’ Election Strategy: Call Everyone A Moron
Derek Hunter

Democrats find themselves in an unenviable position for the 2020 election: they have to convince the American public that they don’t know how bad they have it at a time when we have it pretty good. Their task is like me trying to convince my 2-year-old daughter that she doesn’t really like chocolate ice cream – an impossibility. But when the alternative is to run a campaign extolling the virtues of socialism and the need for government to take life decision-making powers away from individuals, talking people out of believing reality seems like an easier task.

The economy is churning along, Democrats have to make people believe it’s not. They’ve seized on GDP growth being only just over 2 percent last quarter, thinking this will help them. It won’t. GDP is a helpful indicator, but when you have record low unemployment, a booming stock market (hello, 401k!), and wage growth being disproportionately reaped by low income workers (hello, power of full employment), the public isn’t buying it.

The one thing Democrats don’t understand about the American people is everyone doesn’t want to be a billionaire. It’d be nice, no doubt, but the vast majority of people aren’t seething with anger that they have to fly commercial while liberal elites have a Gulfstream at the ready. We notice the hypocrisy but don’t begrudge their success. They’re happy with being able to afford to fly more than they’re obsessed with the method of flying.

Most people just want to be secure in their lives – be able to pay their bills, take care of their families, and have some money left over to have fun with friends and family. They wouldn’t turn down a trip to the Swiss Alps for a ski vacation with the rich and famous, but they’re content with going to the Grand Canyon or to visit loved ones for a few days. Not everyone wants to be a Kardashian.


The politics of jealousy works on some, but not many and certainly not many in the Heartland of the country. But jealousy is what Democrats are offering, and when that offer is rejected they turn vicious.

Politicians are too skilled at manipulation to frame their contempt in blatant terms, but chunky TV sidekick Andy Richter wasn’t. “I’m from the supposed Heartland, and in a political context ‘the Heartland’ does not mean not-Washington. It means the place where white people run things,” Conan O’Brien’s joyless laugh track tweeted this week in response to comments from Pete Buttigieg about needing leadership from flyover country. “And if he doesn’t know that he’s far too naive to be President,” he concluded.

If you aren’t them, you are their enemy.

“Mayor Pete,” for his part, is no better. The progressive mindset is not dependent upon geography, it is an arrogance every bit as contagious as the coronavirus. And Pete is just as infected as every other Democratic candidate.

The New York Times had a story this week entitled, “How People of Color Inside the Buttigieg Campaign Sought to be Heard.” In it, it was revealed that the campaign was surveying “off-white” campaign staff to find out if they’ve been subjected to “microaggressions” by white colleagues. If you don’t know what a microaggression is it’s only because you’re sane. It’s a term created to compensate for the fact that the US is not the racist hellhole it was before Democrats were defeated in both the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement.


Essentially, a microaggression is racism from a white person to a non-white person so subtle that the person doing it and the “victim” of it may not realize it’s happening. It can only be detected upon reflection or by a “woke” third party observer, usually a non-conforming pansexual who only answers to made-up pronouns with a mouth full of granola and a gender studies degree.

In other words, it’s garbage. (For a more detailed explanation of “microaggression and why liberals embrace is, see my book, “Outrage, INC: How the Liberal Mob Ruined Science, Journalism, and Hollywood”.) But it being garbage doesn’t stop the left from embracing it. In fact, the Buttigieg campaign did a staff survey of only non-white employees to see who’s been a victim of it. Some of the “signs” include whether they’d ever been interrupted by a white staffer or “been called the name of a different staff member of color.” Basically, if you’ve ever been treated like everyone else is treated because sometimes people are rude or in a hurry, and people sometimes mix up the names of others.


What is part of normal human interaction is racist when it’s a white person doing it to a non-white person (though Asians, for some reason, don’t count – just ask the Harvard admissions board), but it’s not racist when the races are reversed or the same. Separate, but equal ways of treating each other…sounds familiar, doesn’t it?


That may work in small pockets, but nationwide it is a recipe for disaster. “You’re a racist, now vote for me” or “You’re a moron, now vote for me” may resonate well on CNN or when spoken about others in the third person at high-dollar fundraisers on the coasts, but they aren’t slogans that will win you many votes from the rest of the nation in between.

While a “news” story entitled, “Coronavirus task force another example of Trump administration's lack of diversity,” sounds great in the echo chamber of a CNN staff meeting, you’d have difficulty finding anyone sane who gives a damn about the race of their doctor when they’re sick. No one with a heart condition is walking out of the office of the best heart surgeon in the world because their skin color isn’t “diverse” enough.


But this seems to be what Democrats are pinning their 2020 hopes on – that people will ignore or discount how good they have it because “Orange Man Bad.” It seems unlikely that people they need votes from will, after 4 years of being called racist, sexist, homophobic, fat, stupid, rubes controlled by their fear, will go out and support candidates who promise to reverse the gains they’ve made under the Trump administration and embrace the policies crippling economies from Venezuela to France. But Democrats are going to try. Good luck with that.

I posted this very link over in another thread. Now explain how a racist who has a following with similar attributes, no desire to see racial diversity, criticize minorities, cage Mexican children, hide his taxes, created an additional 3 trillion dollar budget. Tell us son, you speak of a Democratic struggle but somehow won't explain the logic of a racist party negating to expand itself but hoping to stay relevant to racist states, wherein the Democrats hope to garner the support of moderate Conservatives, Independents and those who feel disenfranchise from the main stream Conservatives because they despise racism and hate. Please explain how this phenomenon work where you stay in your own neighborhood but can't quite figure out why your number won't increase? Poor sale tactics if you ask me!!!!

Trump’s great Alice Johnson Super Bowl ad reminds us he deserves major credit for criminal justice reform

It was just a short spot during a first-quarter commercial break of Sunday night’s Super Bowl, but the criminal justice reform advertisement President Trump ran featuring Alice Johnson was brilliant. The advertisement touted his criminal justice reform record, a rare bright spot where Trump truly has delivered what no other president in recent history could.

With the landmark, bipartisan criminal justice reform bill the First Step Act signed into law during his tenure, Trump can claim a major accomplishment heading into 2020. He’s right to make it into a prime-time Super Bowl advertisement, too, because support for criminal justice reform is bipartisan and ranges across voters from all walks of life and backgrounds. It's a much better, more unifying issue to focus on for an event like this than a highly-divisive issue such as immigration or abortion.

The president tweeted the advertisement out in real-time as it aired, along with the commentary that "I promised to restore hope in America. That includes the least among us." It was a powerful, unifying message and moment. A rarity for Trump, sure, but he deserves credit nonetheless.



The commercial focuses on Trump’s commutation of Johnson's sentence. Johnson is a now-famous prisoner who faced a draconian life sentence for nonviolent drug crimes. This, unlike some of Trump’s other pardons and commutations — Sheriff Joe Arpaio, I’m looking at you — was one that deserves praise. Johnson was featured in the Super Bowl advertisement, and the sheer emotion of it rings true: President Trump truly gave her a second chance at life. For both that and his broader criminal justice reforms, Trump deserves major credit.

I'll be the first to play devil's advocate, what in God's name happen at the Iowa caucus last night. Bottom line, are we as a nation so dysfunctional when we can't even organize a game plan to fight and run against corruption? Chaos versus corruption. in the final analogy, we as a country have gone down the drain.
