There were some problems with the Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma that the media jumped on. There were several thousand empty seats in the upper decks of the venue and so the media piled on, proclaiming that the Trump era was over.
And indeed there were empty seats, because of ticketing snafus and also because the media had been warning in days leading up to the rally that violent gangs would be on the streets of Tulsa and so thousands of Trumpsters stayed home. And there indeed were some threatening people who tried to disrupt the proceedings in the streets. This was intended as a warning to future rallies. This also happened at a few rallies in 2016.
But Tulsa showed that the Trump rallies appear to be entering a new phase. It is being reported variously that up to 6.7 million people watched the rally online, and that 7.7 million viewers watched on Fox News. These are earth-shaking figures. It was Fox’s biggest audience EVER for a single program.
And so perhaps the Trump rallies are morphing into something new in the age of the virus – the online viewing seems to be taking the place of personal campaigning. And thus the rallies are actually reaching millions more people.
If, for instance, Trump appears at a rally in Wisconsin and gets 20,000 supporters in the arena and full statewide media coverage, you could imagine that he then could get hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites watching on the internet that he might not have gotten in the past. That means that his influence is going to be vastly expanded over the old rally formula.
Thus as soon as the media think that they have Trump in a corner, he appears magically somewhere else and does his political magic.
Nikitas3.com never watched Trump rallies regularly on the internet, but I will do so now in support of the president.
And then for comparison, Joe Biden held a rally in Pennsylvania and it appeared that only 6 people showed up (yes, just 6 people total).
Meanwhile boat owners went out on the Bogue Sound near Beaufort, NC in a show of support for president Trump. The Coast Guard estimated that 1,500 to 2,000 boats participated in the rally(!) and this was just one of many boat rallies for Trump which we can expect to see throughout the Summer. There recently was another such rally in Florida.
Remember the Golden Rule: ‘Enthusiasm’ wins elections, and Trump has massively more ‘enthusiasm’ than Biden and the Democrats.
Seattle CHOP Zone Will be Closed
Seattle’s “police-free” zone called CHOP is going to be shut down soon, just as Nikitas3.com predicted that it would be. After two shootings, one that was deadly, even the Seattle mayor said that the zone would be closed.
President Trump vowed to use federal force to shut down the zone and pro-Trump bikers threatened to move lawfully on the zone on July 4. But those actions apparently will not be necessary.
Nikitas3.com compared the CHOP zone to the ‘occupy Wall Street’ movement of 2011 and predicted that it would collapse under its own weight as the ‘occupy’ goons did. And it is doing so. Residents in the Seattle neighborhood have been pleading for help since the zone was set up.
Even the Seattle police precinct house that was shut down by the CHOP protesters is being re-opened. Because after all of their marxist rhetoric about getting rid of the police, even the lunatics who run Seattle decided that they had better not do so.
Friends, the coming collapse of CHOP is just one of the massive failures that we are seeing by leftists in our cities who thought that Americans would support their riots, looting, occupation zones and general uprising. Instead the opposite has happened; the American people are overwhelmingly opposed to the protesters’ agenda like de-funding and even eliminating the police.
All in all, the coming shutdown of CHOP, along with the fears generated by the riots in many cities, will help to re-elect president Trump in a landslide, including new Trump voters from within our liberal cities who finally have seen the light.
Byrd’s Name Removed from West Virginia Health Center
Most Americans do not know that the Democrat party was the party of slavery; that the Ku Klux Klan was the military arm of the Democrat party; that the Republican party was founded in 1854 as the anti-slavery party; and that all blacks voted Republican from the end of the Civil War up until the 1960s.
In fact the most prominent US politician ever to have served as a member – and an official – in the Klan was Democrat US senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia who died in 2010 and who served 51 years in the Senate. Byrd was even Hillary Clinton’s mentor in the Senate. And now Associated Press reports:
A private college in West Virginia said Wednesday it is removing the name of the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd from its health center, saying his name had caused “divisiveness and pain” without explicitly noting his complicated past on racial matters.
Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1940s but subsequently denounced the organization. He served in the Senate for 51 years and died in 2010 at age 92.
Bethany College President Tamara Rodenberg said on the school’s website that Byrd’s name will be removed from the college’s Robert C. Byrd Health Center “to demonstrate Bethany College’s capacity to change, to listen, and to learn.”
Bethany’s statement did not specifically mention Byrd’s past ties to the Klan.
OK, this could be the beginning of something big. It will be interesting to see if Byrd’s name is removed from buildings all over West Virginia where they are plastered everywhere. Or if Al Gore’s father, a Democrat US senator from Tennessee, will be singled out as one of the most prominent opponents of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Or if Bill Clinton’s mentor, Democrat senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, will be recognized by Black Lives Matter as one of the leading segregationists of his time. Will his name be removed from the prestigious Fulbright scholarships? Maybe.
Friends, it will be fascinating to watch Black Lives Matter and other left-wing groups deal with this issue. But we know what they will try to do – they will try to give all Democrats a pass. In fact another Hollywood Trump hater looks like he is under the gun over his past use of a racial slur. Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel suddenly announced that he is taking the Summer off. And for good reason. Fox News reported:
Jimmy Kimmel… admitted years ago that he imitated rapper Snoop Dogg’s voice for a track in a 1996 Christmas album — an original song in which Kimmel used the “N-word” several times.
The admission came in a January 2013 podcast obtained this weekend by Fox News. In the podcast, Kimmel also changed his speech pattern in an attempt to adopt the voice of black comedian George Wallace, in what host Adam Carolla called Kimmel’s “crazy black voice.” Kimmel acknowledged imitating black people on other occasions as well.
Kimmel, who is slated to host the Emmy Awards this year, announced last week that he’s taking the summer off amid a brewing blackface controversy; he has not issued an apology.
So let’s see how the Black Lives Matter goons deal with the racism of these liberals, including radio host Howard Stern. Let us pray that Kimmel loses his career, and Stern too, but they won’t be affected since they are on the left.
Meanwhile here is another example of what is happening to a Democrat. Vox reported about notoriously racist Democrat US president Woodrow Wilson, who served in the White House from January 1913 to January 1921:
This Wednesday, a group of Princeton (University, in New Jersey) students stormed the offices of president Christopher Eisgruber to demand that (Democrat president) Woodrow Wilson’s name be removed from all programs and buildings at the university. That’s a big ask. Princeton has an entire school — the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs — named after Wilson, who served as university president from 1902 to 1910, before his time in the White House. It also has Wilson College, a residential college for undergrads.
Wow. At the same time, a statue of Republican president Teddy Roosevelt was removed from the Museum of Natural History in New York since it depicted Roosevelt on a horse with a black and a Native American standing beside in a pose of submission.
Ironically Roosevelt was an extremely liberal Republican and is considered the founder of American left-wing progressivism; he would be the Mitt Romney of his day. Roosevelt was also an ardent environmentalist. Meanwhile these rioters and protesters are so insane that they even defaced the statue of slavery abolitionist Matthias Baldwin in Philadelphia. In other words, the mobs are out of control, which is going to push millions of voters to president Trump’s law-and-order agenda.
