There have been three Trump boat flotillas over the last few days, one at Philadelphia on the Schuylkill River (500 boats estimated); at a place called Lake Okoboji, Iowa (hundreds of boats); and at Biloxi, Mississippi (the third Trump flotilla there. Total of 2,000 boats or more total estimated in all three). Boaters waved large Trump flags and banners and played the National Anthem.
Other boat parades have been held on Long Island and South Carolina with thousands of participants. Another Iowa parade is planned for August 15 and surely in other places as the election heats up. And we can always be sure that if the Fake News Trump-hater media say that “200 boats showed up” that it probably was 500 or 800 boats.
These flotillas are something totally new and are called “political enthusiasm”, i.e., a public show of support for a candidate that is outside of normal political channels. ‘Enthusiasm’ is a known political phenomenon that wins elections. In practical terms, it means that voters will be eager to get out and vote for their candidate under any and all circumstances. If voters are not enthusiastic, they may be ambivalent about going out to vote, for instance if the weather is bad or if they are tired.
Enthusiasm for Trump has been sky-high among his supporters since 2016, while enthusiasm for Joe Biden is extremely low. After all, there is nothing about Biden to get enthusiastic about – he is a pale, sickly old man who can hardly remember where he is, who is hiding in his house. Nikitas3.com believes that Biden will lose the November election largely based on a lack of enthusiasm, particularly among young people and millennials.
You can rest assured that frail Biden is terrified of the Chinese virus, which is certainly why he stays in his house and wears a mask when he ventures out (which is very rarely).
We know that enthusiasm for Trump won the 2016 election, while a total lack of enthusiasm for Hillary lost it. Hillary hardly campaigned and for good reason; her lack of appeal was exposed every time. Example: She held an outdoor rally at a country fair where just a small group of people stood in front of the stage while she was speaking. At another Hillary rally, a gymnasium was only sparsely filled. Meanwhile Trump could turn out 20,000 people at any one of his rallies, with thousands more waiting outside. Those outsiders turned into rallies outside the rallies.
When Trump held his first post-virus rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma in June, the in-person turnout was less than expected for two reasons; anti-Trumpers had threatened violence and many potential attendees were afraid of the virus. But no mind – 14 MILLION people watched it on the internet or on TV. Meanwhile only 136 people watched on the internet as the Biden campaign unveiled its latino agenda.
We must never underestimate the hidden power of enthusiasm. It is something that the Fake News media ignored in 2016 at their own peril. We can always assume that when the Fake News media take a poll about president Trump that they never factor in enthusiasm or any other unseen force that might help him.
There are two other unseen factors that strongly favor the president. There is a huge ‘hidden vote’ for Trump, i.e., people who won’t admit in public that they support the president, even to a pollster on the phone. This is why Trump does not poll well; his support is generally underestimated in polls. Nikitas3.com believes that the biggest ‘hidden vote’ for Trump in 2020 will be among independent voters, among blacks and hispanics, and also among Democrats who vote for the president. Nikitas3.com is acquainted with a Jewish couple whom I always considered to be far-left. They told me that they both strongly support Trump.
And then we have the personal Trump Factor, a phenomenon about the president himself, that he is truly a political “magician” with powers that we have never seen in a president before. Look at how he won the presidency on his first try after he was dismissed as a joke.
Meanwhile Republicans still maintain majority control of the US Senate 53-47 four years after Trump was elected. That is an amazing feat that has confounded all of the political pundits who have never understood president Trump. All of the political pundits were predicting that Trump was going to lose in a landslide in 2016 and that Republicans would lose both the House and Senate. None of those three things happened.
In their first mid-term elections after they won the White House, presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama saw their respective political parties lose a total of 20 US Senate seats in 1994, 2002 and 2010. In Trump’s first mid-term election in 2018, Republicans gained two Senate seats. That is a startling feat for an alleged amateur who allegedly won the White House on a fluke (it wasn’t).
This Summer, Fake News media polls have been putting Trump way behind Biden. This is just like the Summers of 1980, 1988 and 2016 when we saw the same thing – Republican presidential candidates Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush and Donald Trump all were said to be 11 to 20 points behind their Democrat opponents. Yet all three won in landslides; Reagan won 44 states, Bush won 40 states and Trump won 57% of the electoral votes in 2016, which is technically considered to be something of a landslide.
It is important to remember how most of these fake polls are conducted. They are not polls that are conducted to gauge public sentiment. They are rigged ‘media polls’ done by media outfits like CNN, NBC, New York Times, NPR, etc. These polls are slanted against Republicans and then the same media report on those fake polls in their news stories. They generally slant the poll by polling more, or many more, Democrats than Republicans.
The Rasmussen Reports poll, which was the most accurate poll in 2016, recently put president Trump at 51% approval. This is an amazing number coming after 5 years of media attacks on our president. Yet Obama was re-elected in 2012 with only 46% in the Rasmussen poll at this point in his presidency. And Biden is a much weaker candidate than Romney was in 2012, which was pretty weak.
George Bush in an Open-Borders Liberal
Those of us who supported Gorge W. Bush for president in 2000 and 2004 now know that we were hoodwinked. Bush’s presidency was a disaster – 9/11 happened on Bush’s watch; the Mexican border was left wide open under 8 years of Bush; China was allowed to rip us off relentlessly during the Bush presidency; Bush took us into the disastrous Iraq and Afghanistan wars like the globalist warmonger that he is; Bush gave us the turncoat fake-“conservative” Supreme Court chief justice John Roberts. And then to top if off, the economy collapsed right at the tail end of the Bush presidency, handing the White House to Obama.
Right after Bush left the White House in January 2009 he ran off to Africa and was photographed holding black AIDS-infected babies. This was Bush desperately sucking up the media after his disastrous presidency. He has been doing this since 2009 by becoming friendly with Obama and the Clintons and becoming a Never Trumper and an advocate for immigration, i.e., a borderless, globalist world.
In other words, Bush is desperate to salvage his terrible legacy and so he is doing everything he can to please the media. What a fraud. Thank God Jeb Bush is not president, and did not win the nomination in 2016. He would have governed as a liberal, or thrown the election to Hillary.
Here is one telling statement from Jeb Bush to show what a loser he is. When asked in 2014 what he thought about running against Hillary Clinton, he said that she would be “a formidable opponent”. What an idiot. This breaks the #1 cardinal rule of politics – don’t ever praise your opponent. He should have said that he would crush Hillary because she is incompetent, but he didn’t.
And that, friends, is why Donald Trump is in the White House. He is not afraid to play political hardball. Meanwhile John McCain and Mitt Romney could have been elected president if they had spines. But they didn’t.
On immigration, George W. Bush said:
The Bush Institute believes it is critical to be both a lawful society and a welcoming society at the same time. Since our inception in 2009, we’ve retained a clear-eyed focus on the need for bold, principle-based solutions that comprehensively address the issues and debate around immigration, including how to securely and effectively manage the border.
Every year that passes without reforming our nation’s immigration policy means missed opportunities to ensure the future prosperity, vitality, and security of our country. When immigrants assimilate and advance in our society, they realize their dreams, renew our spirit, and add to the unity of America. The Bush Institute will expand its long-standing policy work on immigration in 2021.
This is typical globalist rhetoric implying that we conservatives who oppose open borders are xenophobic. This is false. President Trump counts among his supporters tens of millions of immigrants, children of immigrants and grandchildren of immigrants. And we are not opposed to immigration. We support immigration as long as it is legal and orderly.
Look at how Bush says that we must “securely and effectively manage the border”. That sounds like putting up a wall and controlling the flow of immigrants.
George W. Bush is a loser as are all of the people around him like Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Brent Scowcroft and other limp-wristed ‘Republicans’. They are all globalists who destroyed the nation of Iraq with their policies and severely disrupted America in countless ways, including that war.
Trump: No More Shutdowns
Neel Kashkari, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, called for a nationwide economic shutdown for up to six weeks to get the Chinese virus pandemic under control.
“The next six months could make what we have experienced so far seem like just a warm-up to a greater catastrophe. With many schools and colleges starting, stores and businesses reopening, and the beginning of the indoor heating season, new case numbers will grow quickly,” Kashkari wrote in a New York Times op-ed.
President Trump has insisted that states resist the urge to shut down again. He said earlier this week when asked about Kashkari’s comments that the country is “not going back to shutdowns.”
Good for the president. This whole virus fiasco has been a fraud. Even the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the shutdowns were not necessary.
Kashkari is saying this because he is a liberal who wants to harm the economy and harm president Trump. So who is Kashkari? He is a longtime US government bureaucrat, born in Ohio as the son of immigrants from India. And in case you don’t know, most Indian immigrants to America are very liberal, socialists and even communists. The CEO of Google, Indian-born Sundar Pichai, is an extremist leftist who is happily trying to suppress conservatives on the internet.
Indians are this way for a reason. When India got its independence from Britain in 1947 it distanced itself from the West and from capitalism. It went with a Soviet-style command economy that produced massive poverty and a huge government bureaucracy.
Today many of the immigrants from India come from the elite political and economic classes that benefited from this communist economy. Therefore they too are communists and socialists.
