TrumpMentum!/ Border Wall Grows/ Can Trump Win California?

There is a political phenomenon called “enthusiasm” where voters show passion for their candidate. And the “enthusiastic” party usually wins. Breitbart News reports about sky-high “enthusiasm” for president Trump as manifested in high primary vote totals in Texas on Super Tuesday:

President Donald Trump did not face a serious Republican challenger in Texas, but he still earned nearly two million votes in the state for his re-election.

Trump received 1,871,515 total votes in the Texas Republican primary on Tuesday, with 99.5 percent of the vote reporting.

That’s more than the top four remaining Democrats combined, as currently former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Michael Bloomberg, and Elizabeth Warren have earned a total of 1.7 million votes in Texas, with 91.3 percent of the vote reporting, although the Democrat votes are still being counted.

Trump received the most votes ever for an incumbent president running in Texas.

Fifteen years ago, 635,948 Republican Texans voted for then-President George W. Bush in the 2004 Republican primary. In 2012, 520,410 Democrats voted for then-President Barack Obama in their primary.

Wow. This is amazing news. In other words, conservatives and Republicans are not going to sit back and watch an election slip away like they have done in the past. Trump has truly rebuilt the GOP and taken it away from Swamp Dwellers and losers like Jeb Bush, Johnny McCain and Mitten Romney.

Update: Here are some other figures for Trump versus Obam’s re-election in 2012, including updated numbers for Texas:

Obama: 241,167
Trump: 708,883

Obama: 94,936
Trump: 237,792

Obama: 25,000
Trump: 31,464

Obama: 127,909
Trump: 229,717

New Hampshire
Obama: 49,080
Trump: 129,696

Obama: 64,330
Trump: 273,562

Obama: 80,705
Trump: 384,034

Obama: 518,138
Trump: 1,907,342

Look at that final Texas number. It is almost FOUR TIMES the Obama number in 2012. That is called “enthusiasm”.

Mexican Border Wall Goes Up, Up, Up

With the coronavirus threatening the whole world, president Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration looks better than ever. And it is getting even better. Matthew Boyle at Breitbart News wrote:

More than 700 miles of new border wall along the U.S. border with Mexico have already been built or are in the process of being built, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Acting Secretary Chad Wolf told Breitbart News exclusively this weekend.

In an interview for Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel, Wolf detailed how the new border wall that President Trump promised during his campaign is split into three different categories: wall that is already built, wall that is under construction, and wall that is on the way. The total number of miles along the U.S. border with Mexico that this new wall Wolf discussed will end up covering once complete is more than 700 miles.

“We are building the border wall system on the southwest border,” Wolf said in the interview recorded at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday. “So, we have 126 new miles in the ground today, we have over 200 under construction, and another 400 in the pre-construction phase. So, this is new infrastructure, new capability on the southwest border that our border patrol agents have never had before, and it’s under this administration that we are building new wall systems along the southwest border.”

700 miles of Wall is about one-third of the entire border. And it is important to remember that the new Wall is being built first and foremost in the places that have the most illegal crossings and thus these first new sections are having an inordinately high impact in reducing illegal immigration.

As time passes the Wall will be built out to more remote areas where there are many fewer crossings. There may even be areas with no Wall but only border patrol enforcement.

In other words president Trump is doing something that they said could not be done, just like everything else that he is doing. is confident that Trump will be easily re-elected in November because Americans know a winner when they see one, particularly on a crucial issue like illegal immigration.

Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices

Top US Senate Democrat said recently in statement before a pro-abortion group in front of the US Supreme Court:

“I want to tell you Gorsuch! And I want to tell you Kavanaugh! You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you! If you go forward with these awful decisions…”

This, friends, is typical of how Democrats incite violence against conservatives like Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. And of course Schumer will say that he is just speaking rhetorically, that he is not talking about real violence, but he knows exactly what he is doing and saying. All Democrats do this. They know that they are inciting their lunatic supporters on the left. The list of violent acts and threats against conservatives and Trump supporters is ten miles long.

Bush-appointed Supreme Court chief justice John Robert reacted to Schumer by writing:

“This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while a case was being argued inside. Senator Schumer referred to two Members of the Court by name and said he wanted to tell them that ‘You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.'”

“Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.” suggests that leftists cool their rhetoric. believes that this obsession with violence from the left over many decades is the reason that so many Democrats, socialists and liberals have been assassinated like John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi.

On the other hand conservatives like Pope John Paul II, US president Ronald Reagan, British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, congressman Steve Scalise, and Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro all survived assassination attempts.

Coronavirus Crisis Should Warn us About China

The coronavirus crisis should be a warning to America to stop outsourcing so much of our production to China. Even our drugs are being made in China. This is preposterous. President Trump has been warning about this for many years. Breitbart News reported:

Reps. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) and Mark Pocan (D-WI) introduced the House companion legislation to Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) medical supply chain bill.

Josh Hawley and the House lawmakers’ legislation would strengthen the medical supply chain by granting the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to analyze sourcing locations of pharmaceuticals and medical devices to address medical device shortcomings.

The Missouri senator introduced the legislation after reports revealed that the coronavirus had jeopardized the “domestic supply of some 150 prescription drugs, including antibiotics, generics, and branded drugs.”

Gallagher said in a statement Tuesday:

Our overreliance on products made in China doesn’t just threaten our medical supply chains. It threatens public health. As the coronavirus outbreak highlights how vulnerable access to critical medicines and medical products can be, it’s clear we need to find better ways to assess vulnerabilities within our medical supply chain. By allowing the FDA to identify our overreliance and swiftly take the necessary corrective actions, this bill would allow us to get upstream of potential shortages and better protect Americans access to critical medicines and lifesaving supplies.

The legislation would:

Require that manufacturers report imminent or forecasted shortages of medical devices to the FDA as they currently do for pharmaceutical drugs.
Allow the FDA to expedite the review of essential medical devices that require pre-market approval in the event of expected shortages reported by a manufacturer.
Grant the FDA additional authority to request additional information from manufacturers of essential drugs or devices regarding their manufacturing capacity, including sourcing of component parts, sourcing of active pharmaceutical ingredients, use of raw materials, and any other details the FDA might find relevant to assess the security of the American medical supply chain.

This is plain enough. It is time to bring the production of these drugs, along with the production of so much of our economy including steel, consumer products and computers, back from China.

China is not to be trusted!

Can Trump Win California?

Can president Trump win the electoral votes in California this November?

Well, considering the terrible conditions in California, there may be a backlash brewing against the Democrats who control the state with an iron grip. And president Trump is just the right person to stimulate that backlash.

On the issue of employment, the Democrats recently made their state even more hostile than it already was. Matt Vespa at reported:

AB5 (Assembly Bill 5)— … has reaped havoc on the state…

…Just Google AB5 and you can see the various stories about how up to a million jobs or more are put at risk by this trashy piece of legislation. Megan McArdle had a good summary of it in her Washington Post piece back in December:

AB5 forbids businesses to use (independent) contractors (like freelance writers) unless the companies can pass a stringent requirement known as the “ABC test.” It’s designed to ensure that all workers are classified as employees unless they perform their work independent of supervision, have an established business doing the same sort of work for multiple customers and are doing work that isn’t part of the company’s core business. Meeting one or two of these requirements isn’t enough; you must meet all three.

And then, the layoffs began. There’s also the arts community that has been torpedoed by this bill as well. The Lake Tahoe Music Festival, which was a 40-year annual event, recently announced that AB5 is the cause for its shuttering this year:

The Island City Opera in Alameda had to put a hold on their March concert over concerns about AB5 (via SFCV):

Right at the beginning of the new year, Island City Opera made an announcement, which has immediate reverberations in musical circles, likely to be the first of numerous similar statements:

“It is with a heavy heart that, due to circumstances beyond our control, we must postpone our current plans for the March 2020 production of Dame Ethel Smyth’s The Wreckers.”

The reason?

“As of Jan. 1, 2020, the State of California put into effect new regulations. Island City Opera (ICO), with the guidance of legal counsel, has determined that these new rules apply to ICO and present significant new administrative and financial requirements.”

OK, we know how this goes. Along with the disastrous conditions in once-beautiful San Francisco and the runaway homeless crises all across The Golden State, along with crushing taxes and regulations and general left-wing political lunacy, could California voters be ready for a backlash against their ruling class? Will they support Trump in the Electoral College in November?

They just might… After all, Soviet communism collapsed under its own weight. It could happen here.

We do know that president Trump is probably going to campaign in California for five Republican US House candidates in districts in which Republicans lost their long-held House seats in November 2018.

This would be a good basis for Trump to spread his message to California while moving the state to the right. believes that president Trump will get many more votes in California in November than any Republican has gotten over the last 30 years.

Gun-Control Nuts go to Another Extreme

Fox 21 in Colorado Springs, Colorado reports:

A Fort Carson family wants to share their story with others after their 10-year-old son was arrested and charged with Felony Menacing, a Class 5 felony, which has since been expunged.

The incident happened in July of 2019.

FOX21 exclusively interviewed the 10-year-old. Gavin said he and a friend were playing outside with toys near N. Powers Blvd and Constitution Ave. He said they were playing a version of the video game Fortnite.

“The toy bow was an orange Nerf bow. It didn’t work. Nothing could shoot out of it. Nothing would come out of it. The weapon, well toy I had, had an orange tip. It was also broken and couldn’t shoot anything out of it,” Gavin said.

Gavin stated they pretended to shoot at about 5 to 10 cars until one man stopped. He said he and his friend ran to his friend’s grandparents’ house.

“He slammed his breaks and started reversing as fast as he could,” Gavin said. “He came up and started getting very heated and was very mad. I was at the time, very scared.”

The man called the police. According to the Carpenter family, El Paso County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and arrested both Gavin and his friend. He was handcuffed and taken to the Colorado Springs Police Department for mugshots and fingerprinting.

We can just imagine who this lunatic is who called the police. He was certainly some far-left snowflake-type person who is terrified of guns, GMOs, global warming, dairy products, white men, etc., and who wanted to create trouble for a couple of kids playing with toy guns.

These people are sick.
