5 Ways Trump Could Win In 2020 (And 5 Ways He Could Lose)

The 2020 election is a long, agonizing, tumultuous 20 months away. A lot can change in that time. A whole lot. Given the intensely polarized state of US politics, it’s hard to imagine slogging through these 20 months without something (perhaps multiple things) happening in the political landscape.

That said, Donald Trump is in a good position to win re-election in 2020 assuming the status quo remains… well, the status quo. With that in mind, and with the acknowledgment that those 20 months ahead offer near endless possibilities for scandal, unrest, mean tweets, and more; here are a few all-too premature predictions for how Donald Trump can win re-election in 2020…. and how the opposite could happen.

1. It’s The Economy, Stupid.

Trump Can Win:

Jobs are up. Unemployment’s down. The market is good, interest rates are low, or at least stable for now. Consumer confidence is good. People generally don’t like to change things when things are going well, especially when it comes to their money.

Trump Can Lose:

If you ask me, (and you didn’t), the economy isn’t strong, the recession never ended, and all we did was inflate the bubble and buy some more time. I might be 100% wrong about this, but economists who got 2008 right are already warning about another dip on the horizon. For whatever reason that might happen, the only thing for certain is this: eventually we’ll have another recession.

If this happens between now and the election, Democrats will smartly pounce on it. They’ll cite Trump’s regulation cutting ways, tax cuts, and spending. Whether they’re right or not is not important as far as the election is concerned. The messaging will go the Democrat’s way and people will want a change.

2. Russia, Russia, Russia

Trump Can Win:

The full Mueller Report is still unknown but the core message is this: no collusion. There’s no doubt this was a big blow to the Democrat’s talking points for 2020. Whomever the candidate winds up being, if they go full-blown Russia conspiracy theory during the campaign, it will not end well for them.

Trump Can Lose:

The full Mueller Report is still unknown but here’s the thing: Even if whatever is in there isn’t a Tom Clancy-esque espionage story, it’s still not likely to be flattering for Trump or his people. Donald Trump is/was a real estate developer in New York City for the better part of the last half-century. There’s not a doubt in my mind he hasn’t broken a few laws in that time. Does Mueller know about them? And are sordid details of past transgressions in his report? That’s the question.

3. Trump Gets Indicted

Trump Can Win:

There is an ongoing investigation in the Southern District of New York that is likely going to wind up with Trump being indicted. The NYC AG has already said that’s her plan. The question is: for what? If Trump failed to pay property tax in 1972 or had some unpaid parking tickets in 1984, he won’t be hurt by it. Most people will roll their eyes and see it as a politically-motivated attack.

Trump Can Lose:

The New York City Attorney’s General is not likely to indict Trump for unpaid parking tickets. The question is: what will she indict him for? There’s not a doubt in my mind an indictment is coming. Whether or not a sitting President can be indicted is a matter of some debate with most (emphasis on most) good faith legal minds agreeing that no, they probably can’t be. The correct process would be impeachment, removal from office, then indictment as a private citizen.

If the charges are serious enough, Democrats will lead a charge to impeach to follow that exact process. Why?  Because the indictment itself will be challenged in court and probably kicked all the way to the Supreme Court to settle the “can a president be indicted” question once and for all.

The answer will likely be no and Trump will probably not be impeached and removed from office either. But that’s not the point or the plan. Trump doesn’t have to be arrested, indicted, impeached, or convicted. He just has to have that process hanging over him to be enough to sway voters away from voting for him.

Look for this to start happening in early 2020 (if not sooner). Just enough time for the entire sordid process to drag on through the summer leading up to the election. The Dem nominee (whomever it is) looks instantly better in the public eye just by comparison.

4. The Democrats Run…..

Trump Can Win:

Anyone not named Joe Biden.

Kamala Harris is a former prosecutor and AG who’s part of “the system” and will not be embraced by the progressive wing of the Democratic base which runs more anarchistic. Elizabeth Warren lied about being Native American, Cory Booker is a media hog who doesn’t know anything, Beto is a trust-fund kid who spends his time standing on counter-tops when he’s not getting his photo taken. All the other nominees are unknown nobodies who won’t win the nomination so they’re not worth speaking about. The most normal among them? Tulsi Gabbard. But she’s anti-war so they’ve already decided she won’t be the nominee.

What about Bernie? He’s a crazy old kook with a lot of videos of him talking about rape and breadlines while sitting naked in the Soviet Union in the ’70s. Just Google it. Bernie won’t win, the DNC doesn’t want him to win, and he’s not nearly as popular among Independents, Centrists, and Moderates as people would have you think he is. There’s also a file cabinet full of opposition research on him that Hillary Clinton never used. If he’s the nominee, it’ll be fun.

Trump Can Lose:

I have said from the beginning that if Biden runs, Trump loses. I stand by that. Like him or not, Biden is a calming presence. He served two terms as the Vice President for an extremely popular war criminal President. He is well-liked and well-respected among coastal elites and blue-collar workers alike. However, he’s got a little rough and tumble in him and he won’t be afraid or intimidated by Trump’s jabs. He’s basically Trump if Trump were more measured, polished, and politically astute.

Yes, there’s “creepy” videos of him out there which may cause some #metoo moments but these have been out there for years. It’s also hard to imagine the media (in full opposition mode) really pushing or challenging him on it. If Biden is the nominee, Trump is in trouble.

5. Socialism – How Does It Work?

Trump Can Win:

The so-called “new” right-wing of the political ideology is not the alt-right. With increasing political divisiveness and fractures in the cultural landscape, the new right has a lot of unlikely bedfellows. Conservatives, Republicans, Moderates, Centrists, Libertarians, Conservative Democrats, etc are all at times skeptical, wary, disgusted, disgruntled, or otherwise bothered with the rise of socialist leaning politicians like Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Occasional Cortex.

Whatever “real socialism” is doesn’t matter. There is a growing group of authoritarian Democrats who want more state power. More government control. Higher taxes. If the nominee, whomever it is, doubles down on this in an effort to pander to the more extreme (and smaller) wing of the Democratic base, they’ll lose.

Trump Can Lose:

As a Republican, Trump has spent like a drunken Democrat sailor. He is, and remains, a big city Democrat in Republican clothing at least when it comes to Government spending and driving up the debt. He can’t, won’t, and shouldn’t run on his “fiscally conservative” record because it doesn’t exist.

A savvy Dem can make the (tortured math) argument that Trump wants billions for a wall, a space force, and military parades but a few bucks to save healthcare is too much. An Elizabeth Warren type will get up there and scream about millions of people dying in the streets (which isn’t true) or about how climate change is racist (it’s not) and killing Americans by the thousands (it isn’t). A Joe Biden, on the other hand, will say “hey, we need to help our neighbor with a hand up because it’s the right thing to do.” That’ll play well.

Who Wins?

It’s far too early to tell. With 2020 still 20 months away, it’s anybody’s game. There are many ways in which Trump can win. There are also a few ways he can lose. Don’t think for a moment that the Dems don’t have some tricks up their sleeves, however. Starting with Trump being indicted in the Southern District of New York sometime in early 2020. Mark that down and remember you heard it here first.

However, the one good thing is that the Democrats have an entire primary season to get through. There are approximately 4,395 Democrats running for the nomination. Once the debates roll around, the President will be watching them, live tweeting them, and bestowing nicknames upon the candidates from the Lincoln Bedroom.

Strap in, it’s going to get bumpy.

The Dangerous Reality Behind AOC

I think we’ve all figured out that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t joining MENSA anytime soon, but she is a rising star in the Democratic Party for some reason.

Since November, I often wonder about this “girl from the Bronx” who came out of nowhere.

Firstly, who voted for this person? Where did she even come from?  How does a former bartender go from zero to hero in six months?

Seriously, how does someone with no professional experience or even a basic understanding of how our government works, land a seat in the House of Representatives?

Does anyone else think that’s strange?

Like most people, I dismissed AOC as a short-lived social media sensation whose voice would soon be lost in the noise of DC.  Although, in the meantime, I have thoroughly enjoyed the steady stream of memes at her expense.

Honestly, she is single-handedly destroying blond jokes.  There’s no way anyone could take her seriously, and yet, somehow, they are.

Her first piece of legislation right out of the gate, The Green New Deal, dealt a shockwave of horror through many even in her party.  A bill that reads like an 8th-grade sociology project is a cleverly disguised push for socialism that’s veiled as an answer to climate change.

 

Multiple Democratic Presidential candidates have thrown their support behind the Green New Deal despite wide-spread criticism and condemnation. The “aggressive,” “on-scale” plan to address the “existential threat” of “climate change” is “obviously” what this country needs to “survive.”  (Thank god this isn’t a video. My fingers would be cramping from all the aggressive air-quotes.)

I find it hard to believe “Sandy from the Bronx” came up with this all on her own.

My next question was: Who Did?

The Real Brains of the Operation

One day, I see a NowThis video pop up on my Facebook with AOC’s Chief Of Staff doing an interview.  I don’t recognize who he is, but I recognize the person on his shirt.

Subhas Chandra Bose is the Fascist from India that accepted the help of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis to free India from Britain rule.  The fascist idealist is a heroic figure in India for his fight to free his country from Britain’s overbearing control.

As Americans, I don’t think we can judge the guy for that.  After all, we did it in 1776.

What separates Subhas Chandra Bose from George Washington, is that he was a fascist and socialist.  He supported violence in political activism and even accepted help from Hitler and the SS to help his mission.

Subhas Chandra Bose and Hitler were kindred spirits.  Both Socialists, both nationalists, and both fascists.

With that in mind, who on earth works for AOC that idolizes this guy?

This guy isn’t just any guy on her staff.  It’s her Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti.

And Saikat Chakrabarti idolizes this Nazi loving fascist so much that he wears this shirt for everything.  Not joking, he’s selling professionally shot images of himself and his team on stock image accounts for $199 per license.

 

For a Socialist, he sure does act like a Capitalist.

Who Is Saikat Chakrabarti?

Alright, let’s start from the beginning.  Chakrabarti is a native Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from Harvard with a degree in Computer Science.

Saikat Chakrabarti Justice DemocratsAfter graduation, he spent eight years in Silicon Valley working for various companies.  He co-founded the wireframe building site Mockingbird.com and went on to help build the payment processing site, Stripe.com.

Once again, for a fascist-loving socialist, he sure does act like a capitalist.  Between Mockingbird and Stripe, Chakrabarti is a self-made millionaire.

According to an interview in IndiaAbroad.com, he became disillusioned with society after graduating from Harvard and earning millions.  Ummm, ok.

It was then he decided to leave the tech sector and go to work for the Bernie Sanders campaign.

You have to create the society you want to create and that is done through politics.-Saikrat Chakrabarti

Evidently, this society he wants to create involves breadlines and political oppression.  Per Chakrabarti, Sanders didn’t have all the “right answers,” but he was talking about the “right problems.”  During his time with the Sanders campaign, he learned how to harness the power of volunteers among many other things.

It was also here that he met his future business partners/activists, Alexandra Rojas, and Corbin Trent. (See above)

After Bernie’s loss to Hillary in the primaries, the team went on to form PACs Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress.

While Chakrabarti appears to be an ambitious and creative progressive activist on the surface, in reality, he’s positioning himself to influence politics for years to come.

The Reality

By helping AOC land her seat in the House of Representatives, Chakrabarti landed himself on the Politico Power Player list of 2019.  The interviews with Saikat reveal a lot about his plans, and himself.

He’s creative, cunning and using the one progressive he managed to get elected as a face for his long-term plans.

When you shoot for big stuff, you stay true to the movement, you fight unapologetically on the inside, that is a very, very powerful way to pass the radical solutions that are necessary to face the radical problems that you have.- Saikat Chakrabarti

Keyword: RADICAL

First, he set up Brand New Congress to issue a sort of “casting call” to communities all over America with the intent of finding and then backing as many radical progressives as he could enlist.  This was how he found gaffe-prone Ocasio-Cortez.

Here’s how it works:

Saikat Chakrabarti Infographic

I’ll give it to this guy, this is smart.  Really smart.  Chakrabarti founded and controls two major PACs with one simple goal: Pack the Government with Radicals like AOC.

Based on this alone, it’s clear that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t the brains behind her operation.

Here’s Why He’s Dangerous

Initially, when I started researching Chakrabarti I asked myself, “Why doesn’t he run for Congress himself?”

If we look at his goals, strategy and action plan; it becomes very clear.

  1. Running on his own ticket would divert his attention away from mass producing candidates to challenge moderate Democrat incumbents.
  2. If he loses his election, he loses his power.
  3. AOC and other candidates make up for his shortcomings in relatability, social media presence, and personality.  (Sorry, dude.  No one wants to watch you cut vegetables in your kitchen while you rant about climate change)
  4. If a candidate loses their election, he can move on to another one.
  5. By helping and funding candidates win a seat in Congress, he has a clear path to Congress as well.
  6. Even if AOC loses her next election, his process is repeatable every election cycle.

By structuring his PACs in the way he’s done, he’s essentially setting himself up to have a very long, very powerful career working behind the curtain to influence policies in Washington, DC.

Think about it, within the span of four years, Chakrabarti has propelled himself from campaign organizer to Chief of Staff.  All he had to do was find someone to be the face of his grand plan.

Let’s be honest, if you peel back the slimy layers of the swamp, the power players aren’t the ones messing with their dentures nonstop.  Nope, the real power players are the ones behind the scenes, advising on policy decisions, buying votes and playing a game by their own set of rules.

Granted, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is still dangerous.  People are listening to, and supporting the message she is parroting, but she is merely a vessel.

Don’t let them fool you, America.  If they want you to look here, it’s because something else is going on over there.

 

 

[Guest Post] Silence The Truth: The Suppression of the Yellow Vest Movement

Suppression of the Truth

Since I was a child, I have favored strong women in my life; both my mother and also my 6th-grade math teacher, Michael Nakovich.

I don’t know what Mrs. Nakovichs politics or beliefs are, however, she always told me “DO NOT LET ANYONE SILENCE YOU, OR SILENCE THE TRUTH.”

And the same with my mother, who is a proud Republican, and since my upbringing, I have never let anyone tell me to silence myself, or to censor my opinion. Even if it’s the other side of the fence, I don’t silence theirs.

However, today I am exposing the other side of the fence.

Yellow Vest Protests Are Spreading

Earlier this morning, the United Kingdom experienced the beginning of their own Yellow Vest protests that have been plaguing France for months.  The disgruntled anti-Globalist movement is spreading like wildfire across Europe.  Germany is seeing these types of protests as well.

Credit:TheVerge.com

Unfortunately, not many people understand what is going on in Europe. Especially since we have a leftist media that won’t report anything negative in their defense, at all.

Now, why is this important for me, as it should be important for you?

I’ll tell you why.

Yellow Vest or Gilet Jaunes in French, began in response to the Carbon tax imposed by French President Emmanuel Macron. This tax devastated the working class of France that rely on traditional means of transport to earn a living.

Gilet Jaunes quickly grew as more frustrated french citizens realized their government cares more about refugees and pushing climate change.

Subsequently, tensions are rising by the day, and soon protestors are rioting and flipping cars over.  Nevertheless, these brave revolutionaries show up every week to fight back against a government that has turned their back on them.

Little did they know, Germany would soon join the fight.

Europe Globalists are In For a Fight

Now, I have blood relatives in Germany.


They are pro LEGAL immigration, not illegal immigration.

Towards the end of the year last year, my own flesh and blood, my cousin was almost sexually assaulted in a public restroom by a refugee. She lives in a small town that I once lived in for four years as a child.

A town that used to have a population of 800 people and everyone knew each other’s name; a town that cared about each other, in Wingsbach, Germany, no one was ever violent. The community always came together to help each other.

However, recently when Angela Merkel opened Germany’s borders, women have been attacked, sexually assaulted, raped, and even murdered.

Sadly, my cousins in Germany no longer walk alone at night; they walk in three’s and four’s. Thanks to laws dating back to the National Socialist (Nazi) party, they still have no guns. As a result, their only legal means of protection is a bat.


This morning, the UK joined in the fight with protesting against what is wrong with their country, demanding a change in government, and policies.

Soon, I predict that they will overthrow the queen, and they should. They need to party like its 1776.

Brittains are tired of the high taxes as well as the communistic socialism that they are ruled under. There is no freedom to speech; citizens aren’t allowed to have an opinion against the Queen. They are tired of the refugees coming into their country, they are tired of not being able to defend themselves.

Media Outlets and  Social Media Suppress “The Silent Truth”

This morning, one of the first live videos of the UK Yellow Vest protests aired on Facebook. I shared that video on my timeline.

Facebook being the communistic community that it is, tried to silence my voice.

Naturally, they censored my post, because it “goes against community standards.” They also censored the woman, who lives in the United Kingdom, who originally shared the post; this is “The Silenced Truth.”

For those of you who follow me, know I have a mouth on Facebook. I don’t even tolerate the LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ communistic community trying to tell me “what I need to do,” because I’m gay.

However, I will not tolerate Facebook silence me, for posting the truth.

I will never stop breaking down the ideology they force feed into people’s brains. I will never stop telling people what has really happened in foreign countries.

Most of all, I will never tell a lie to make “Facebook” a safe space.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things going on in the world, and sometimes being safe, means being informed.

Sometimes having safety should mean KNOWING WHAT IS OUT THERE. Sometimes being safe, means knowing what the truth is.

Facebook is not on your side.

And I will never rest, and I will never stop. The silenced truth hurts, and it’s a real bitch.

Many of us face permanent bans on Social Media for our Conservative opinions.  I soon predict that one day my voice will be cut off of Facebook permanently.

Socialism Will Rise Again With This Generation

Time Heals All Wounds

What’s done, can never be undone. The pain, the scars and the shadows of failed socialist systems can never be completely undone.

Unfortunately, they can be forgotten.

The history books are happy to remind us if we are willing to read them.  Story after story of starvation, poverty, and death.  How many lessons do we need?

Still, we see people supporting Socialism like it’s some new concept.

Why is it that horrible ideas like socialism and communism never entirely die?

That’s not TRUE Socialism. No one has ever tried true socialism.

-Idiots Who Have Never Taken a History Class

This strange case of amnesia pops up right on cue when a society gets too comfortable. The cautionary tales of the past die with each passing generation.  Eventually, the scars of Communism and Socialism fade away as society gets lazy, entitled and stupid.

Guilt and Resentment are the Roots of Socialism

Throughout all my conversations with liberals, the same trends emerge.  For those who have enough, they experience guilt for those who do not.

For those who do not have enough, they resent those that do.  As a result, liberals create an infinite loop of guilt that validates the entitlement of others. This entitlement, in turn, feeds more guilt.

Socialists promote equal outcome over equal opportunity and success is a dirty word.  In the minds of socialists, if you have more than your neighbor, it must be due to greed and exploitation.

We are fighting for an unapologetic movement for economic, social, and racial justice in the United States. -Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Ahhhhh, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  The new superstar Radical Democratic Socialist of the Left.  “AOC” as the media affectionately refers to her, is the face of the modern Democratic Party.

Her path to Congress was a modern tale of David and Goliath.  Shockingly, she unseated the veteran Democrat Joseph Crowley in the New York primary to win her seat as the youngest member of Congress in history.

Her campaign was an impressive mix of fueling guilt and resentment.  Her only real skill is being a social media savvy millennial with a passionate drive at achieving social justice.

Now that she’s in Congress, she’s using her newfound fame to push radical socialist ideas. Unfortunately, she’s proven time and again she no real knowledge of how our government or economy works.

Never the less, her ideas are gaining support.

Which proves one thing:

Socialism Needs a Generation Stupid Enough to Believe in it

And here we are.  We are living in a time where college campuses require “Safe Spaces” and grading systems are oppressive.

Honestly, this hurts for me to admit this, but AOC represents the air-headed, entitled and spoiled members of my generation.

Indeed, I’m a millennial and the nonsense coming out of my generation is embarrassing.

Our attention spans are shorter than a goldfish and gratification is instant.  Likewise, many millennials have never heard the word “No” because of the negative feelings that might come along with it.  Offending someone is now a violent crime and jokes are considered hate speech.

This generation appears to be the most educated of any generation ever.  College enrollment has increased by 240% since 1965, especially among black and Hispanic communities.

With all this learning going around, how is it possible that the largest voting demographic in the US supports socialism at such a tremendous rate?

Alright, let’s break this down.

Indoctrination

Schools all the way up from elementary to graduate are now liberal indoctrination centers.  Schools no longer teach hard work.  They teach what they have to, and if a student receives a bad grade, the parents harass the teacher instead of holding their child accountable.

Now, promoting gender identity is more important than building strong, resilient minds.

At one point in our history, college was where you went to explore new ideas, challenge your comfort zone and embrace change.  Today, they are expensive daycares for young adults who aren’t earning degrees worth anything.

Case in point, AOC graduated from Boston University with a degree in economics and still believes a 70% tax rate is the path to economic prosperity.

Instant Gratification

We live in a society where anything you want is right at your fingertips.

Don’t feel like cooking? No, problem. UberEats will deliver anything you want right to your door.

Not in the mood to go out, meet people and socialize?  Well, social media solves all of those problems and more.  We have a world of information at our fingertips.

Consequently, many (not all) in this generation have no idea what it feels like to earn anything. So many don’t know what it means to work hard, fail, get back up and try again.

Nope, now they have adult-sized temper tantrums that result in gratification because bad PR isn’t worth it anymore.

All you need now is someone relatable and good-looking to tell you that you deserve that job or that salary.  The things you don’t have are a right and by others requiring you work for them, is the worst form of oppression.  Soon, everyone you know is angry and resentful.

It’s time for a revolution.

When Ignorance Bands Together

Historically, when ignorance bands together, freedom and democracy dies.

The uneducated, the misinformed and the lazy find a remarkable amount of resilience and work ethic when they are trying to help themselves to what someone else has earned.

Time and again throughout history we’ve seen this stupidity turn violent and result in death.  Unfortunately, when they are successful, the only thing they succeed at is causing more suffering and death.

We’re looking at our future, patriots.  We’re looking at the death of our liberty if we don’t do something to stop it.

Socialism has been patiently waiting in the shadows for a generation stupid and lazy enough to resurrect it.

Wake up, America.  That generation is here.

A Closer look at the Arizona Election

Arizona Midterm Election, A Closer Look [GUEST POST]

On The Hunt for Facts

Since the recent election, I was concerned about the outcome.

The Republican candidate in Arizona for Senator won on election night.  However, the Democrat candidate was declared the winner almost a week later.

With other elections such as Florida and other states having allegations of voter fraud, I took it upon myself to at least in a small way look at the results myself.

I started with getting the election results from previous elections, dating back to 2010 for comparison, going granular not only by county but by precinct in each county.

Then I made a spreadsheet.

Well, because I like to do spreadsheets and yes I am that guy. I did find some rather interesting results.

The Counties

First, let’s start with the simple number of registered voters versus actual votes counted.

Obviously, A should never be larger than B, such as Precinct 1 would have 500 registered but only 300 voted including early ballots, provisional, etc. Here’s what I found.

AZ Voter Registration Sheet

Apparently, the accounting is not correct, especially if these are supposed to be the official results.

I also added the 203 column, which referred to Prop 203 in 2010 which legalized medical marijuana in Arizona.

Again, it had the same pattern.

Polls said Arizonians didn’t want it. Election night the vote said outright that they didn’t want it.

But hey what’s this, a box? Oh, interesting there’s all these uncounted ballots, and well looky-here it just happens that there are enough votes that it did pass by 4,341.

As I mentioned, these are from the official results from the Arizona Secretary of State.

This alone shows that there is not a proper accounting in the least of whether the registered versus voters are legitimate. Here’s the breakdown by precinct.

The Precincts

AZ Precinct Breakdown

First, I am not showing the actual vote tallies merely because I do not know if they’ve been officially released to the public. First, since the vote tallies are yet to be released publicly, we won’t be stating those here. I just called up each county to ask and they either directed me to the location or they emailed it to me directly.

So until I see that’s it’s been put onto the website as released I’m going to treat it as embargoed, just in case.

The Breakdown

What I have here are all 26 precincts that have more votes than registered. Column F shows the number of votes over and above what was registered.

Columns H and I, well ok I guess I’ll show the votes here, no one tells anyone ok?

Column J is the percentage of votes to registered, essentially the turnout.

At the top is 67%, that’s the average throughout the state.

As you can see going down the column these areas had an overabundance of turnout.

And of course, the R and D is who won or a tie if the vote was the same for both.

Therefore, column O is the amount of percentage over and above the state average.

Yeah, granted, some areas had lower turnout over here and higher turnout over there. Taking these out for this point, there are areas that had 0% or really low turnout, and areas as high as 97%.

However, Doney Park at 1824%?

Oh, Yuma, it had zero registered voters and 19 actual voters, I have no idea how to calculate that one.

So columns P & Q (sorry for S & T, ended up duplicating) are then weighted to that 67% average of what that vote might have looked like. This would mean that McSally would’ve had 3,408 votes less and Sinema 5,712.

The next sheet I’ll admit is purely speculative, and you could shoot a thousand holes into it.

Previous Trends

Historical Voting Trends.

What I did here was in each election going back to 2010 I looked at all the races to look at one specific criterion.

On off-years such as this one, I looked at the Governor candidates, 2016 and 2012 were Presidential candidates.

For each precinct I wanted to gauge whether it leaned Republican or Democrat, going by say for 2018 Precinct 1 carried the Republican, and so on.

In total, I had five elections to base that on, so if a precinct went four or five for a given candidate I would say it would lean that way, less than that I disregarded it.

I then asked some simple questions. How can this precinct that was historically Republican-leaning could vote for Sinema?

That to me had a big disconnect.

True, maybe McSally didn’t campaign there. Maybe she said she was anti-Trump and the voters didn’t like that? Again, many variables.

But that’s a large number, as I show here that’s 11.4% of the precincts that for all five elections were leaning Republican decided to switch?

The next column is worse, looking solely at the 2018 election, those precincts that carried Ducey 237 decided to vote against McSally? Or more precisely voted for the Socialist candidate that in several videos referred to Arizona as the Meth lab of the United States, as well as the sixth C for crazy.

Yeah, I’m sure Arizona wanted that.

The next two columns I did the same questions for Prop 203, received even more stark numbers.

Now granted, demographics shift. Precincts get redrawn, some are added to this election and others dissolved. And as I mentioned maybe McSally had her own issues with getting the message out. It’s just that to me this seems very odd, someone is going to explain it to me.

So let me be clear. If Sinema won fair-and-square then so be it. The manner in which this was done leaves me with huge suspicions, and the released data doesn’t help that. In the very least it shows that the tallying has problems, either in the number of registration or in the vote counting.

Granted, mistakes happen. However, did anyone pick up on the last columns I had, where it said R and D?

The number of precincts that I note had 6 where McSally won and 20 that Sinema won. If you take out Yuma since I don’t know, zero registered voters, that gives 5 Republican questionable to Democrat’s 20.

Very interesting to me.

Right now I have serious doubts as to the legitimacy of Sinema’s election. Until those concerns are addressed, quite frankly, I do not recognize her as my Senator. There is too much potential fraud going on here, I don’t know what to make of it.

Lastly, I do concede that it may be that the Republicans need to turn out the vote better next time. I made this sheet to show the weak points versus the strong and who won in each. Heck, the Democrats could even use this, I don’t mind if they use it, I don’t mind a fair fight.

Credit: NYT The Land that Failed to Fail

It was a casual Sunday.   My daughter had another grueling two-hour volleyball practice that I use to catch up on whatever project I’m working on at the moment.

Naturally, a lot of scrolling happens during these practices.  During my snoozefest scrolling sesh, I saw it.

An NYTimes Article is romanticizing “Communist” China. Inappropriately titled, “The Land that Failed to Fail.”

Now, this is the second time in recent months I’ve seen a magazine article romanticizing the concept of Communism.  The last time was Teen Vogue of all places.


A growing discontent for capitalism and a resurgence of Communism or “Democratic Socialism” (as some on the Left like to use as a disguise for Communism) is spreading in the United States.

Let’s focus on this one particular article about the success of Chinese Communism though.  It says,

In the uncertain years after Mao’s death, long before China became an industrial juggernaut, before the Communist Party went on a winning streak that would reshape the world, a group of economics students gathered at a mountain retreat outside Shanghai.

The article goes on to boast the massive growth of China’s economy in the past 40 years as some Communist Christmas Miracle.  This miracle defied all odds and didn’t fail when everyone said it would.

Why is this article idolizing Communism as some socioeconomic beacon of success?

Seriously? Has this writer ever been to China?

Every nation that attempts Communism fails, including China.  The only thing remaining in China that is Communist is the political party that should have but didn’t abandon the name after it failed.

Don’t believe me?  Let’s look at some history and most importantly, some facts.

A Brief History

Communist China

Mao Zedong defeated the existing Chinese regime in 1949.

Immediately after, he brought true, authentic Communism to the people of China.

Communism is not Love.

Communism is the hammer which we use to crush the enemy. -Mao Zedong

His first order of business was equally distributing all land among the people.

Next, he centralized all means of production under the control of the state.  Agriculture shifted to a system of collective farming.

Landlords and capitalists were suppressed and stripped of all property and wealth.

Mao’s Great Leap Forward was a massive failure that led to famine and death of its citizens.  This failure inevitably led to Mao tightening his grip on the population.  Any critics of his radical ideology were imprisoned or killed.

Political powers grows out of the barrel of a gun. -Mao Zedong

The Communist reign of Mao ultimately led to the death of up to 80 million people and China was only freed of the tyranny in 1976 when he finally died.

Communism did fail in China.  What is left does not even remotely resemble Communism.

Since the NYT author failed to examine the facts, we took the liberty to do it for him.

The Ten Planks of Communism

Ten Planks of Communism

Let’s look at the ten basic tenets of Communism.

  1. Abolition of Property in Land and Application of all Rents of Land to Public Purpose.

  2. A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.

  3. Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance.

  4. Confiscation of the Property of All Emigrants and Rebels.

  5. Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.

  6. Centralization of the Means of Communication and Transport in the Hands of the State.

  7. Extension of Factories and Instruments of Production Owned by the State, the Bringing Into Cultivation of Waste Lands, and the Improvement of the Soil Generally in Accordance with a Common Plan.

  8. Equal Liability of All to Labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, Especially for Agriculture.

  9. Combination of Agriculture with Manufacturing Industries; Gradual Abolition of the Distinction Between Town and Country by a More Equable Distribution of the Population over the Country.

  10. Free Education for All Children in Public Schools. Abolition of Children’s Factory Labor in its Present Form. Combination of Education with Industrial Production.

Now Let’s Compare with China

  1. Abolition of private property- Nope.  You can own a home in China.  Granted, you don’t own the land it is on, but real estate is a booming industry in China. By a Marxist definition, the land is not used solely for the public purpose.  In fact, the state issues 70 year leases on land
  2. A Heavy Progressive Income Tax- Again, not even close.  The tax rate for most Chinese is lower than many countries like Japan and the Nederlands.
  3. Abolition of Rights of Inheritance- Wrong again.  Here is the Law of Succession in the Peoples’ Republic of China.
  4. Confiscation of Emigrants and Rebels- Partially correct.  Foreigners can own a home in China as long as they have lived in the country for 12 consecutive months.  Although, I’m not sure why anyone would want to.
  5. Centralization of Credit, Banks, Capital, etc.- 

    Noooooooope.  There are privately owned banks in China.  The government stifles their businesses with regulations, restriction of assets and laws, but they exist.

  6. Centralization of Means of Communication and Transportation- No.  Independent and privately owned transportation and communication exist.  It was previously under State control. However, this was one of the economic reforms implemented in the 80’s and 90’s. It must be stated that the media, the internet and other forms of communication are heavily supervised by the State though.
  7. Production/Means of Production Owned by the State- No. The transition away from SOE (state-owned enterprise) was one of the first economic reforms of the 80’s and 90’s when China was removing the layers of Communism from their economy. In fact, the private sector was responsible for 70% of the economic growth once China was free from Communism.
  8. Equal Liability To Labor- Borderline accurate.  China does command one of the world’s most massive armies. However, in terms of Marxism, China does not meet these requirements any longer.
  9. Combination of Agricultural and Manufacturing Industries; In other words, the elimination of class separation- Definitely not.  There is a pretty significant distinction between wealth and class in China.  The nation of China boasts an impressive 476 BILLIONAIRES. The only country that beats them is the United States.
  10. Free Education- Yes and no.  State-owned and operated are the preferred secondary education.  However, they are incredibly competitive.   Also, there are fees and tuition costs, but China’s student debt is virtually non-existent.

What Remains of Communism in China

Above all, China has maintained a strong and authoritative position over the population.

Recently, China increased their interference in the privacy of their citizens with new technology.  Their new surveillance technology monitors each person using facial recognition.  Citizens are rewarded or penalized based on day-to-day behaviors that include small things such as manners, to others such as smoking.  

Citizens in good standing receive additional privileges, while others not in good standing experience fines and even travel restrictions.

Yikes.  No thank you.

Freedom of speech is not a thing in China, either.

Due process? Well, it’s gotten better over the years, but the Chinese are known for imprisoning its people for virtually anything.

Example: An Author was recently sentenced to ten years in prison for writing about a gay sex scene in a book.

Religious persecution is common in China, and they are also a very nationalistic nation. (Think about their Olympic team.  Zero diversity. ZERO.)

Google is currently under intense scrutiny from its employees for agreeing to work with the Chinese government to spy on and control internet usage for its population.

When you look closely, China has more in common with Fascism than Communism at this point. (Don’t tell Liberals, they’ll lose their minds)

Final Nail in the Coffin of Communism in China

Karl Marx’s utopian vision for society relied on the elimination of the bourgeois.  In his mind, societies that exploited the proletariat were evil and must be abolished.

The exchange of labor for a wage, in his mind, was modern day slavery. To reverse this evil system, he believes the State should distribute land equally and create a nation where no one man has anything more than any other.

Sit down, Lefties. I’m about to burst your bubble.

Currently, in China, their entire economy is driven by and relies upon the proletariat. China’s economy has thrived by creating mass-produced exportable goods at prices lower than any other country in the world.

Unfortunately for the Communist, China has been able to lift more people out of poverty by eliminating Communism and implementing Capitalism.

Furthermore, I challenge any Communist, Socialist or Leftist to prove me wrong.

Until then, do yourself a favor and stop romanticizing Communism in articles that you write on your MacBook Pro from your high rise New York City offices.

#WalkAway DC March MAGA Hats

The Case for Gay Republicans

Gay Republicans are Real

Many on the Left gasp in horror when they meet Gay Republicans.  Somehow, being gay became synonymous with being a raging Liberal.

I’m not a raging Liberal.  In fact, I never have been. I flirted with the Left briefly after I “came out”, but I ended up running back to the Right once I realized I wasn’t obligated to be there.

This concept was simple for me to understand.  I didn’t agree with Liberals on anything aside from gay marriage, so why would I base my vote on a Democrat on one issue?

However, this is considered a cardinal sin in the LGBT world.

It doesn’t have to be.  Here’s why.

The LGBT Community Needs A Strong Economy Too

It’s pretty hard to U-Haul on the second date if you don’t have enough money to buy or rent a house.

Economic prosperity means you and your partner, regardless of what you “identify” as, will have the money to do the things you want to do.

Voting Democrat because you support LGBT rights, also means you’re voting for higher taxes, more government regulations, and weaker economies.

There are other policies that come along with your vote for the Left.

Your Democrat Congressman may support your right to change your gender on your driver’s license, but he also supports legislation that suffocates businesses.

 

If you can’t put food on your table, does it really matter what your license says?

It may to you, but you can’t employ thousands of people with your gender designation.

Open Borders are Bad for Everyone

Being gay does not mean you are obligated to save the world.

In fact, open borders is a terrible idea for the LGBT community because many of the people who want to flood here, punish gays in their native countries with the death penalty.

Allowing anyone to come here without vetting and due process puts our culture, our way of life and our government at risk.

If these people are unwilling to assimilate to American culture, they will bring their archaic beliefs with them.  They will elect people who represent those beliefs.  Those Representatives will influence legislation and ultimately, you.

Linda Sarsour, a prominent Muslim activist for the Democratic Party is vocally anti-Semitic and pro-Sharia Law.  For some reason, she is the poster child for Liberal tolerance and diversity.

However, if she were to get her way and Sharia Law ruled America; women would be oppressed, gays would be executed, and the LGBT community would be forced underground once again.

Ever wonder why there are no Muslims in the Republican Party?  Islam promotes traditional family structure, opposes abortion and much like the Christians, are devout to their God.  It would actually make MORE sense for the Muslims to run under a Republican ticket, right?

Wrong.  Their fundamental beliefs directly contradict American values and rule of law.

Nationalism does not always equal racism.  Racism does not always require Nationalism.

Promoting Nationalism means that you want the people of your country to be taken care of first.

If you’re gay, straight, black, white, Hispanic etc and are a citizen of this nation, that applies to you.

Embrace it.  Cherish it. Protect it.

The 2nd Amendment Applies to Everyone

Gay RepublicansThe LGBT was the victim of violence for many years. (Ironically, now it’s conservatives.)

Do you think if Matthew Shepherd had been armed that night in Wyoming, he would have been beaten to death?  Absolutely not.

Communities who arm themselves remove victimhood from their lives.

Buy a gun, learn how to use it and change the script of our story.  Being gay does not mean you have to be a victim, ever.

Everyone has the right to protect themselves.

Abortion is Murder

Last time I checked, gay people didn’t have to worry about unwanted pregnancy.

In fact, many gay and lesbian couples would gladly take any unwanted baby and raise them in a loving family.

Your sexuality does not mean you have to support someone else’s irresponsibility.

Life is precious and if you are a gay couple who have to pay thousands of dollars to build your family, you should protect it all costs.

If that doesn’t change your mind, watch a video of an abortion being performed.

It will break your heart, turn your stomach and traumatize you for life.

Finally, Gay Marriage is Settled

The Supreme Court ruled on gay marriage.  We’ve established the precedence and overturning it would be very difficult.  Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmed this ruling during his confirmation process.

When pressed on the issue of Gay Marriage, he stated that the Supreme Court had already ruled on the treatment of homosexual people.

Gays for TrumpThe Republican Party has moved on, so should you.

In fact, almost all of the bigotry, homophobia, and hate I’ve experienced since I came out was from the Left.

Shocked?

You shouldn’t be.  The Democrats have a long and violent history of hate, racism, and discrimination.

It wasn’t until the 1950’s when they figured out the minority vote is a powerful tool.  They’ve been pushing the oppressed and victim platform ever since.

In reality, most Democrats opposed gay marriage for most of their careers. If you think they suddenly care about you now, I have a bridge to sell you.

Just Be An American

Ultimately, the Republican party doesn’t care your race, religion or orientation if you love and protect your country.

Take a look at what you stand for.  What you really stand for, not for what they tell you to stand for.  Are the Democrat solutions really what is best for yourself and this country?

Talk to a conservative or many.  How do they treat you?

Furthermore, disagree with a liberal.  See how they treat you.

We need to stop defining ourselves by singular issues like race, orientation or gender.  We are so much more than that and at the end of the day, you’re just as human as anyone else.  If you take the “gay” out of your identity for one minute, would you still vote the same?

It’s okay to identify with ALL the things that make you, you.  Stop allowing the Democratic Party to hold you hostage because of identity politics.

You deserve better.

 

The Gay Republican movement is growing stronger by the day.  We’re ready for you to join us.

Identity Politics

Identity Politics: A Solution

Elizabeth Warren: The Identity Politics Master

Earlier today, Massachusetts Democratic Senator, Elizabeth Warren released a video of her and her brothers discussing their ancestry.   This well-edited and professionally produced video made sure to exploit identity politics to the fullest.

Elizabeth Warren Identity politicsIn short, the video establishes her 1/1024th Native American blood is “strong evidence” that her claims of being Cherokee are true.  Next, she makes sure everyone knows that her heritage had no part in advancing her career as a law professor.

Oh, and also she has brothers who are registered Republicans.  (Weak attempt to appear moderate and non-partisan? Check)

I mean, we all know she’s going to run in 2020, so she’s laying the groundwork now.  The video basically went down a checklist of potential campaign problems and checked them off, one by one.

My question is:

If she’s not using identity politics to further her career, then why would she release an entire video addressing? And why does she always describe herself as Native American, particularly on the campaign trail?

In recent years, it appears as though Democrats are adding identity politics to their bags of dirty tricks.  I mean, who doesn’t want to elect a minority who can rise up against the straight, white patriarchy and defeat them once and for all? [Sarcasm]

Let’s take a look at how Democrats are using identity politics to get a few more votes.

A Few Examples

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Claims she’s a working-class girl from the Bronx.

 

Transgender Identity politics
Christine Hallquist

Truth: She grew up in an upper-middle-class suburb of Yorktown and went to Boston University.

 

Richard Blumenthal: Claims he was a nearly died serving in Vietnam.

Truth: He obtained FIVE deferments in the Vietnam and war. When he later got caught lying, he said he “misspoke.”

Hillary Clinton: Well, she’s a woman and obviously we’re due for the first female President regardless if she’s qualified or not. Never mind the fact that her husband has his own section in the library of #MeToo moments.

Barack Obama: Identity politics successfully elected Barack Obama twice.  He also converted to Christianity to improve his public appearance.

Christine Halquist: The first openly transgender Governor candidate that’s currently running in Vermont.

The list goes on, and on…

Why This is Dangerous

By electing representatives based on their identity, and not their merit, we are creating a dangerous situation that has a lasting effect.

You wouldn’t bring a car mechanic into the job of a chef, would you?  No, you wouldn’t.

Just because a person feels passionate about politics, does not necessarily mean they’re fit to be in the political sphere.

Don’t believe me? Take a look at the Democratic Socialist sweetheart du jour, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Her entire campaign has been a mess of bizarre statements and what can only be described as word salad.  (She still can’t explain how she’s going to pay for her socialist Utopia.)

When we focus on the race, gender, religion or orientation of a candidate, we lose sight of (or completely ignore) how they feel about real issues.  Real issues that effect real Americans and our lives.

In doing this, we are setting ourselves up for disaster.  Disasters that look like Obamacare, the Nuclear Iran deal and the bank bailouts to name a few.

Just because a person can be chummy with late night talk show hosts and rub elbows with celebrities, does not mean I want them representing me.

Not to mention, using identity politics to make yourself appear to be some champion for the oppressed, is just insulting and cheap.

Simply put, if you can’t qualify for a position based on your experience and qualifications, you don’t deserve the job. End of story.

A Simple Solution (Even though no one will ever actually do it)

Two Words: Blind Elections

That’s right, by having blind elections we can remove identity politics, from politics.  Hear me out.

Imagine in your election, the only things you know about the candidates are:

  • Education
  • Past Work History
  • Citizenship Status
  • Views on all the Issues
  • Goals
  • Political Party (And maybe not even this one)

No more:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Orientation
  • Cheap Shot Political Ads
  • Good public speakers, horrible public servants

Problem solved!

 

I don’t honestly expect this to ever become reality in this country.  Would be pretty nice, though.  Don’t you think?

Trump Should Troll the U.N with a Gay Ambassador

Nikki Haley Breaks the Heart of America

Nikki Haley rocked the Republican community this morning when news broke that President Trump accepted her resignation. Haley, known for being bold and unapologetic, has frequently called out other countries for hypocrisy or injustices. Unfortunately for us, Haley will be leaving her post just short of two years as U.N Ambassador.

Hopefully, Nikki Haley will find herself in an even better position within the Trump administration. Her career has been nothing short of inspiring for women all around the country, and we can only hope she continues to serve our country in some capacity.

In the meantime, Trump now has an opportunity to do what he does best; Troll the Left.

The Next U.N Ambassador (We Hope)

May we present you with the next (we hope) U.N Ambassador, Richard Grenell.

Grenell is currently serving as the Ambassador to Germany. His nomination came from the one and only Donald J. Trump.

“Well of course he did,” says the Left, “He’s a white guy.”

Yes, he is, but he is also the only openly gay Republican serving as an ambassador. By nominating Rick Grenell to be the US Ambassador to the U.N, President Trump would be reaching epic levels of trolliness.

And that’s something we can get behind all day.

So Much Trolling

Not only will the Left’s wheel of oppression fall off its gears, but now homophobic nations will be face to face with someone they usually throw off a building.

It’s no secret that the Left wants to pain our POTUS as a homophobic, racist, xenophobic bigot. The problem is, he keeps destroying that narrative almost weekly.

Just last week he nominated a black man for surgeon general and not long before that, he appointed the first black female general in the Marines.

It’s about time we put the homophobic claims to rest as well. Choosing Rick Grenell would help nicely.

Next, despite the love that the Left has for Muslim countries, these are places that still openly target their gay citizens. Just last month, Indonesia “spared” two lesbians of 100 lashes and opted for “rehabilitation” instead.

Imagine being one of these countries who punish homosexuals and considers such a person guilty of a crime. Now they are face to face with an individual who, in their country, would be stoned to death. Ouch.

Not only that but many of the more progressive countries like the UK and Germany will undoubtedly see this as a step in the right direction for the US. However, these are also countries that have opened their borders and tolerate the invasion of Muslim refugees into their communities.

Everyone grab their popcorn. We would see a trinity of Presidential trolling unfold on a global stage.
