Trump is Sending Feds to Urban ‘War Zones’/ Biden = Hillary/ Goya = Chick-fil-A

After more than six weeks of rioting, looting and violence, president Trump is planning to dispatch federal law enforcement personnel to US cities that he called “war zones”.

The president could even send US Army troops under the Insurrection Act of 1807. supports this idea as rioters have mocked and attacked police while local judges have refused to punish the rioters. The Washington Times reported:

President Trump is planning to direct federal law enforcement “help” for Democratic-run cities that have seen a rise in violence this summer, calling them “war zones.”

In a meeting with Attorney General William Barr and other federal officials at the White House on Wednesday, the president said he’ll make a “very exciting” official announcement next week.

“The left-wing group of people that are running our cities are not doing the job that they’re supposed to be doing,” Mr. Trump said in the Oval Office, adding that he will soon announce “what we’re planning to do to help them.”

“They’re supposed to be asking for help,” Mr. Trump said. “And they don’t want to ask — maybe they’re proud or maybe they think it’s bad politically. But we can’t have happened what’s happening.”

The president has singled out cities such as Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Atlanta for a summer of rising violence, including homicides. Last week, the Justice Department announced it was launching a special operation with dozens of federal agents from the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration and other agencies to Kansas City, Missouri, to help suppress a wave of violence there.

“If the city isn’t going to straighten it, if local politicians — I don’t say this for political reasons — they’re all Democrats, they’re liberal, left-wing Democrats,” Mr. Trump said. “It’s almost like they think this is going to be this way forever, where in Chicago, 68 people were shot, and 18 died last week, we’re not going to put up with that. We’re going to be talking about some of these cities where the Democrats running them have just lost control of the city, so it’ll be very interesting.”

The president said he was prepared to send in federal forces to Seattle to get rid of a police-free “autonomous zone” set up by protesters, but city leaders finally took action.

Mr. Trump said Americans are fearing for their safety and it’s time for federal intervention.

“It’s something that I think at this point, the American people want to see,” the president said. “They’ve been run very poorly these cities, whether it’s Seattle, where we were getting ready to go in … Minneapolis, where we had the National Guard go in — and as soon as they did, we straightened that mess out. But we have other cities that are out of control. They’re like war zones.”

This is good news. We know that Democrats support the rioting and looting as a means to seize power and create chaos while the citizens of the cities live in increasing fear, including their overwhelmingly liberal populations.

Federal intervention, along with other Trump pronouncements and actions against the rising tide of violence in the cities, is going to lead to a resounding re-election victory for the president in November, predicts. believes that many liberals and Democrats in the cities who fear for their safety are going to privately vote for Trump as they finally see the truth. believes that this is going to lead to a seismic and permanent shift in the electorate toward law-and-order Republicans like president Trump and away from the increasingly radical and permissive Democrat party.

After the establishment of the lawless CHOP zone in Seattle, even liberal Seattle residents were fearful for their homes and lives. That zone eventually was dismantled and the Seattle mayor who allowed and praised the zone is now facing a recall. President Trump had threatened federal action if local officials had not acted.

There have been big spikes in violence across the country and in places like New York City where several children have been killed recently by black gangsters with guns. People in black neighborhoods are more frightened than ever and would certainly welcome outside help after the left-wing mayor of the city has trashed the police and condoned lawlessness. New York state also adopted a no-bail law that went into effect on January 1.

On top of this, thousands of criminals, mostly black, have been released from jail in the Chinese virus crisis.

The city of Portland, Oregon, which is the home of the domestic ‘antifa’ terrorists, has seen nightly rioting since the beginning of June. It is continuing to the present but is being ignored by the national Fake News media. Many blocks of the Portland downtown are boarded up and the rioters are not being prosecuted by a radical district attorney but are being released instead.

Under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice is acting. It is lodging federal charges against increasing numbers of rioters. Attorney general Barr said that 150 people have been charged under federal statutes and that 500 more have charges pending. This is good news since the local officials aren’t doing it.

Update from The Daily Wire:

Federal law enforcement officials have reportedly started to whisk suspected rioters off the streets of Portland in unmarked cars as the Trump administration begins to make good on its promise to “quell” the violence in the city.

“Federal law enforcement officers have been using unmarked vehicles to drive around downtown Portland and detain protesters since at least July 14,” Oregon Public Broadcasting reported Thursday. “Personal accounts and multiple videos posted online show the officers driving up to people, detaining individuals with no explanation of why they are being arrested, and driving off.”

“The tactic appears to be another escalation in federal force deployed on Portland city streets, as federal officials and President Donald Trump have said they plan to ‘quell’ nightly protests outside the federal courthouse and Multnomah County Justice Center that have lasted for more than six weeks,” OPB added. “Federal officers have charged at least 13 people with crimes related to the protests so far, while others have been arrested and released.”

This is great. Go here if you want to see a video of law enforcement officers in military and riot gear arresting one of the thugs and whisking him away in an unmarked car.

The tactic appears to be having an effect. Look at this from Yahoo News:

Mark Pettibone, 29, told the Washington Post and OPB that he was among those protesters grabbed off the streets of Portland. Pettibone said he was heading home from a protest with a friend early Wednesday morning when several men in green military fatigues jumped out of an unmarked gray van.

“I was terrified,” Pettibone told the Post. “It seemed like it was out of a horror/sci-fi, like a Philip K. Dick novel. It was like being preyed upon.”

He ran, but said he was caught, detained and searched. He said he was placed in a holding cell in a federal courthouse, officers read him his Miranda rights and he declined to waive those rights and answer questions. Then, he said he was released with no record of his arrest.

Terrified? Fantastic. It is time for law enforcers to strike fear into the hearts of the punks and rioters and terrorists on behalf of the law-abiding citizens of Portland and other cities.

Meanwhile The Washington Times also reported:

Federal prosecutors announced groundbreaking terrorism charges against a leader of MS-13 on Wednesday, saying the man, who was an illegal immigrant in the U.S. before being deported twice back to El Salvador, ran the violent gang’s Eastern U.S. operations.

Armando Eliu Melgar Diaz, 30, oversaw 20 MS-13 cliques stretching from Louisiana to New York, ordering assassinations and facilitating the gang’s extortion and drug trafficking activities, the Justice Department said.

He becomes the first MS-13 leader to face terrorism charges here.

One of those New York targets, Alexi Saenz, could face the death penalty, Attorney General William P. Barr said.

Great. We know that president Trump has acted strongly against MS-13 since he was elected, expelling hundreds of its members from the US. Obama, on the other hand, did almost nothing about MS-13 just like he played patty-cake with ISIS terrorists in Syria, whom president Trump has since wiped out.

Joe Biden = Hillary Clinton All Over Again

After dragging Hillary Clinton across the finish line in 2016 since there was something obviously wrong with her health-wise, the Democrats are doing it again with Joe Biden. Amazing.

Who could forget Hillary fainting at the 9/11 memorial service two months before the election. Who could forget the photo of Hillary being pulled up the stairs by her aides. Who could forget Hillary disappearing from the campaign trail for weeks at a time with no rational explanation. Who could forget the Hillary motorcade with an ambulance in it, ready for the worst.

And now it is happening again. Joe Biden is obviously not well. He is just like Hillary – he can put on a show for a brief period, but there is something very wrong with him such that he cannot perform over an extended period. He recently referred to the state of Arizona as “an important city”.

Biden’s gaffes are legendary, like the time he referred to Super Tuesday as “Super Thursday”. Or the time he confused his sister and his wife. These gaffes go on and on. This is why Biden cannot do campaign appearances; he knows that his only chance of winning is to hide like Hillary did and pray for a win. But it won’t work.

Biden has lucked out in that the the China virus has given him an excuse to avoid public appearances. even believes that Biden will avoid debating president Trump because he knows that his campaign would collapse when he screws up before 90 million Americans who are expected to watch the first debate. Already New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman has suggested ways for Biden to drop out of the debates, including by demanding Trump’s tax returns.

When you look at Trump and Biden side by side, you see a weak, thin, pale, forgetful old man in Biden alongside a vigorous, healthy man in Trump who is willing to talk extensively with the press. Biden also wears his black mask in public. This makes him look even worse.

It is amazing that the Democrats are trying to pull this scam again. But then again, that’s politics. They simply considered the rest of the 2020 primary lineup to be unelectable. Beto O’Rourke? No. Eric Swalwell? Nope. Pete Buttigieg? Naaahhhh. Bernie Sanders? Forget it. Pocahontas? No.

Biden has political seniority and so he was picked by the Democrat Establishment. But he generates zero enthusiasm. That’s why Hillary lost.

Trump, on the other hand, had massive rallies leading up to election day 2016 and his voter ‘enthusiasm’ remains sky high to this day. Recently Trump supporters staged the biggest flotilla in history at a massive Trump rally at Lake Murray in South Carolina, with an estimated 3,400 boats all waving Trump flags. Biden or Hillary could never turn out 100 boats.

Like Hillary, Biden has no charm or appeal. cannot see millennials, particularly young blacks, finding any reason to get off their butts and vote for Biden. He looks like a tired old man, the archetype character that young people have dismissed and mocked for millennia.

Trump, on the other hand, is vigorous and a great showman. He knows not only how to lead but how to connect with people. After all, he became a TV celebrity with his Apprentice TV show and was wildly popular. And this came after building a multi-billion dollar real estate empire. This guy can do anything.

Goya = Chick-fil-A

When the CEO of Goya Foods praised president Trump at a White House event recently, the haters jumped into full gear. They immediately launched a boycott of Goya products.

But then the pro-Trumpers countered with a Goya ‘buy-cott’ and Goya sales have gone through the roof after Goya CEO Robert Unanue refused to be cowed and said that he supported the president 100%.

This sounds familiar. We saw the same with Chick-fil-A. After it was discovered that the Chick-fil-A founder, S. Truett Cathy, a devout Southern Baptist, closed his stores on Sundays and opposed same-sex marriage, the left publicly boycotted the chain. Wikipedia reports:

In June 2012, following a series of public comments opposing same-sex marriage by Dan T. Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s chief operating officer, related issues have arisen between the international fast food restaurant and LGBT people. This followed reports that Chick-fil-A’s charitable endeavor, the S. Truett Cathy-operated WinShape Foundation, had donated millions of dollars to organizations seen by LGBT activists as hostile to LGBT rights. Activists called for protests and boycotts, while supporters of the restaurant chain, and opponents of same-sex marriage ate there in support of the restaurant. National political figures both for and against the actions spoke out and some business partners severed ties with the chain.

The outcome of the initial controversy was mixed, as Chick-fil-A’s sales rose twelve percent, to $4.6 billion, in the period immediately following the controversy; this was largely attributed to former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee’s counter-boycott launched in support of the restaurant.

Unfortunately for the haters, the boycott only drew attention to Chick-fil-A and drove its sales through the roof, particularly among conservatives. Look at this from Business Insider May 14, 2020:

Chick-fil-A is inching closer to McDonald’s title of the biggest fast-food chain in America.

In 2019, Chick-fil-A was the third-largest restaurant chain in the US by sales, according to a recently released Technomic report.

The report estimates Chick-fil-A brought in $11.3 billion in sales in 2019. Starbucks was ranked second, with $21.4 billion in US sales and McDonald’s was in the top spot, with a whopping $40.4 billion.

Chick-fil-A grew sales by nearly $1 billion over the last year, up from the $10.4 billion it made in US sales in 2018.

Chick-fil-A manages to have such impressive sales with fewer locations than competitors because each location makes significantly more than rivals’ restaurants. A Chick-fil-A location makes more than $4.5 million in sales on average, compared to a McDonald’s location, which makes about $2.9 million.

None of us ever heard of Chick-fil-A ten years ago, never mind in the same breath as McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s. Yet today it is #3 thanks to the publicity from the boycott. We are seeing the same with Goya. There are photos on the internet of empty Goya shelves in grocery stores with signs that the brand is sold out.

Great. This liberal “cancel culture”, where anyone who disagrees with left-wing orthodoxy is smeared, is backfiring all over the country. The Trump Curse has taken down dozens of people who have smeared the president. This is precisely why so many of the Trump haters have clammed up – because they know that The Trump Curse is real and they want no part of it.

On the other hand, The Trump Blessing has hit companies like Goya. Amazing. Fantastic. Now I have to run out and stock up on some Goya beans.
