Could president Trump win the 10 electoral votes in Minnesota in 2020? A state that he did not win in 2016?
It is possible even though no Republican presidential candidate since Richard Nixon in 1972 has won Minnesota. But that could change.
Voters in Minnesota in 2016 picked Hillary Clinton by only 45,000 votes. It was a stunningly strong showing for Trump in a state that is often very liberal.
Many Minnesota Republicans who were concerned about Trump in 2016 voted for Libertarian Gary Johnson, who received 112,000 votes, or they voted for conservative anti-Trumper Evan McMullin, who got 53,000 votes.
Some or all of those protest votes could very well swing back to president Trump in 2020 and put him over the top in Minnesota. Trump also outperformed other Republicans running for Minnesota statewide offices in 2012, 2014 and 2018.
There’s another reason to believe that Trump can win Minnesota: Democrat politicians in the state are becoming more radical and are rejecting the moderate policies that ‘swing’ voters in the state have long valued. These militant policies include the Green New Deal, open borders and free health care for illegal immigrants.
Another factor is that high-profile first-term militant Democrat muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minneapolis has low approval ratings among Minnesotans. Trump is definitely going to use Omar as a ‘wedge’ to get Minnesota voters to choose himself and other Republicans over Democrats.
Nikitas3.com predicts that Trump will win the 10 electoral votes in Minnesota in 2020 along with the electoral votes in several other states that he did not win in 2016 including New Hampshire, Colorado and Nevada.
Obama Doesn’t Fear Rising Seas
TMZ reported about Martha’s Vineyard, an elite ultra-liberal island getaway in the ocean off the coast of Massachusetts:
Barack and Michelle Obama (are) in escrow for a remarkable, mega-expensive, Martha’s Vineyard estate.
Multiple island sources tell us the Obamas are in escrow for the estate owned by Boston Celtics owner, Wyc Grousbeck. The former Prez and First Lady have been renting the house this summer and loved it so much, we’ve learned they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000. Our sources say they’re paying less, but we don’t know how much.
The estate — incredible. It’s 29 beachfront acres. The main residence is just shy of 6,900 square feet. It has 7 bedrooms… It has the obligatory pool, an outdoor fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, vaulted ceilings and 2 guest wings. It has incredible views, especially while soaking in the second-floor balcony Jacuzzi.
The beachfront is private … and comes with a boathouse.
So it looks like ol’ Barack is not too worried about those pesky “rising sea levels” that he and his ‘greenie’ friends are always warning us about.
And he is not worried because the sea levels aren’t really rising at all and everyone knows it, including Obama. Yet here are three quotes from Obama:
No nation, however large or small, wealthy or poor, can escape the impact of climate change. Rising sea levels threaten every coastline. More powerful storms and floods threaten every continent.
The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear. Sea levels are rising. Coastlines are shrinking.
[W]e’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods.
Obama is a typical ‘green’ hypocrite and liar. Also notice that Obama is buying this property on an island that has an all-white population. So therefore we can conclude that white people must not be the awful racists that Democrats like Obama claim they are.
Trump Hatred Won’t Win for Democrats in 2020
Democrats are running on one principal strategy for re-taking the White House in 2020 – hatred of president Trump.
It will not work. You can’t beat “something” like a strong economy and foreign policy leadership with “nothing” like hatred of the president.
It is interesting that Democrats claim to be the ‘party of compassion’ and ‘tolerance’. Yet we all know that this not true. Their hatred for president Trump and everyone who voted for him and for conservatives in general shows an ideology that is based on anger, abuse and revenge.
Hillary Clinton and her media cronies used this strategy of hatred in 2016 against Trump and they lost. But Democrats continue to try everything. Look at this from The Gateway Pundit:
Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro defended his twin brother today after his brother doxxed top Trump donors in the San Antonio area this week.
Democrat Rep. Joaquin Castro published a hit list of names and professions of EVERY MAJOR TRUMP DONOR in his city of San Antonio.
He then added this.
Joaquin Castro: Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of @BillMillerBarBQ, owner of the @HistoricPearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc.
Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’
This comes two days after two deadly mass shootings (in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio)!
… Trump supporters are receiving harassing, threatening calls from violent Democrats today.
But alas, the ‘Trump curse’ is striking in reverse. The people who are supposed to be hurt by Castro’s actions are actually being helped. Fox News reported:
(Joaquin) Castro, D-Texas, recently published a list of President Trump’s top San Antonio donors. He also doxed their places of employment.
… One of the businesses the congressman targeted for political retribution was Bill Miller Bar-B-Q, one of the most popular brisket and sweet tea joints in San Antonio.
… The day after Castro published that hateful screed, thousands of Texans piled into their pickup trucks and drove to the nearest Bill Miller Bar-B-Q.
Social media reports flooded in showing massive drive-thru lines backing up onto busy streets. Hungry customers patiently waited in lines out the door.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted a photograph of a plate piled high with barbecue noting it was a “perfect night for @BillMillerBarBQ.”
This should all be duly noted by Democrats. After all, conservatives rallied to Chick-fil-A’s defense when it was victimized by leftist bullies over the company’s Christian beliefs. And Chick-fil-A has prospered wildly since then and has taken third place in sales at US fast-food restaurants after McDonald’s and Starbucks.
This is all a result of growing fearlessness among conservatives and a new approach by our fearless leader Trump telling conservative Americans not to sit back and be abused by these leftists.
Note: The Castro brothers’ mother and father were radical chicano activists in Texas. In short, the Castro brothers are part of a new generation of latino extremists who want to turn the United States into a shit-hole country like Mexico where violent mobs and drug cartels rule large parts of the nation. The Castros want the same mob rule here; that is why Joaquin Castro published the names of Trump donors.
Meanwhile liberal hatred is spreading like wildfire everywhere, even when a conservative dies. Here is what “comedian” Bill Maher said about allegedly conservative mega-billionaire David Koch, whose family fortune comes largely from servicing the oil and natural gas industries:
“And now, some funeral news to report. Yesterday David Koch of the zillionaire Koch brothers died .. of prostate cancer. I guess I’m going to have to re-evaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer.”
Maher continued: “As for his remains, he has asked to be cremated and have his ashes be blown into a child’s lungs.”
“(Koch) and his brother have done more than anybody to fund climate science deniers for decades. So f— him, the Amazon is burning up, I’m glad he’s dead, and I hope the end was painful.”
Do we remember conservatives talking like this every minute of every day when Obama was president?
No. These leftists are screwballs and losers. And ironically Koch has some very liberal positions, like open borders.
This anger is why Trump is going to be re-elected. Americans are not going to take this stuff. Americans are vastly more fair-minded that that.
Meanwhile Democrats are expressing no remorse about labeling ICE a lawless organization that maintains “concentration camps” for illegal immigrants. Because they know that the loonies are now shooting into ICE offices with rifles, as they did in Texas, which is precisely what Democrats want.
Another example of mob rule: A black guest on MSNBC called for “pitchforks and torches” outside the Hamptons residence of Equinox and SoulCycle chairman Stephen Ross after it became known that he would host a fundraiser for president Trump.
“I want pitchforks and torches outside this man’s house in the Hamptons,” Elie Mystal said. “I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice. There’s no reason it has to be. There’s no reason he should be able to have a nice little party. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood.”
In other words, the Democrats are deploying a strategy of mob rule, intimidation, insults, profanity and threats and are implying that it is not even human to support president Trump. This is happening for a reason – Democrats are losing their power big-time under Trump.
And when Mystal says, “making their voices peacefully understood”, that is an outright lie. Mystal knows that these protests at the homes of conservatives and Trump supporters are acts of pure intimidation, with violence threatened and suggested. “Pitchforks and torches” suggest violence and mob action and Mystal knows it.
This all comes in the face of Democrat 2020 presidential candidates showing repeated weakness and ineptitude by supporting ideas like free health care for illegal aliens which has 27% support among American voters in one recent poll.
So as the Democrats and their allies move further and further to the left policy-wise, they are moving to the left tactics-wise. They are physically attacking conservatives, as happened recently in Portland, Oregon; holding protests at the homes of Republican politicians and funders; and generally ginning up hatred.
They constantly post and say the most vile things about president Trump, even lying to do so. They pursued president Trump over the fake Russia collusion story and were devastated when it proved to be a hoax. But they did not care. They just moved onto another lie and another hoax.
A recent hoax that was around for just a few days was that “the Amazon rainforest is being burned down” as a result of the policies of the conservative Trump-like leader in Brazil Jair Bolsonaro. This has been debunked.
The anti-Trumpers recently made a movie called The Hunt that depicts wealthy left-wing elitists hunting down Trump supporters. This is the most vile thing ever but it is a perfect example of the horrible mindset of these people on the left.
Fortunately public pressure forced them to cancel the release of the movie.
All in all their hatred of Trump is not working and will not win in 2020.
This anger goes to any issue that offends liberals. For instance Nikitas3.com recently commented on YouTube video about a house with all sorts of weird architecture and solar energy installations.
I said that the house was overly complex and expensive and that I had lived in such a house decades ago and found its design to be wanting.
In response a lefty responded to my comment in very bitter terms:
you sound lake a lame, unfounded troll. it is obviously great regardless of whether or not it is subsidized. why exactly is this so grossly complex? it is not expensive, and not boutique, it is a design that sequesters garbage into something useful. you know? are you unfamiliar with doing things yourself and sustainable technologies? you claim to have lived in such a house. perhaps you are just rude and old and unwisened despite your years. this is all based on the assumption that you are not just some un/paid troll. lol !!! earthships are winning regardless.
The angry nature of the reply was typical, i.e., if you contravene any liberal idea these days – even about the houses we live in – and use common sense to back it up, or personal experience, liberals come back at you with vengeance. They are very angry people. It’s scary.
Another example of Democrat rage: Democrats did not condemn (i.e., they supported) Nike’s decision to not sell sneakers with the 13-star Betsy Ross flag on them.
On the other hand Rush Limbaugh is selling hundreds of thousands of Betsy Ross flag T-shirts and giving the proceeds to a 9/11 charity called Tunnel to Towers, which is named for New York firefighter Stephen Siller. Here is his story:
Firefighter Stephen Gerard Siller was the youngest of seven children born to Mae and George Siller. At the age of eight, Stephen lost his father, and a year and a half later his mother passed away, leaving him an orphan to be raised by his older siblings. For a while Stephen went through a period of struggle, but thanks to the love of his siblings, and the values instilled in him by his parents, he grew up to be an extraordinary individual and dedicated firefighter. More than most, he knew that time was precious and accomplished much in his 34 years.
On September 11, 2001, Stephen, who was assigned to Brooklyn’s Squad 1, had just finished his shift and was on his way to play golf with his brothers when he got word over his scanner of a plane hitting the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Upon hearing the news, Stephen called his wife Sally and asked her to tell his brothers he would catch up with them later. He returned to Squad 1 to get his gear.
Stephen drove his truck to the entrance of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it had already been closed for security purposes. Determined to carry out his duty, he strapped 60 lbs. of gear to his back, and raced on foot through the tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others.
Stephen had everything to live for; a great wife, five wonderful children, a devoted extended family, and friends. Stephen’s parents were lay Franciscans and he grew up under the guiding philosophy of St. Francis of Assisi, whose encouraging and inspirational phrase “while we have time, let us do good” were words that Stephen lived by. Stephen’s life and heroic death serve as a reminder to us all to live life to the fullest and to spend our time here on earth doing good – this is his legacy.
