The riots, arson and looting in Kenosha, Wisconsin are extremely disturbing. It is the latest city (population 100,000) to be so afflicted after bigger cities like Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, Louisville, New York City, etc.
The ultimate impact of the Kenosha riots will be to deliver Wisconsin’s electoral votes to president Trump in the November election, Nikitas3.com predicts.
Trump won Wisconsin in 2016 by 23,000 votes, or .77%, which is very close. Wisconsin had not voted for a Republican in the presidential election since 1984 and Ronald Reagan. But considering that Obama had won Wisconsin by 415,000 votes in 2008, the shift to Trump was a major milestone. Wisconsin is considered to be a crucial state for president Trump to be re-elected.
Wisconsin has been trending conservative over the last 10 years. In 2010, Wisconsin elected a conservative Republican governor Scott Walker who moved quickly to undo the damage done by 8 years of a corrupt Democrat governor who was closely linked to labor unions. Walker served two terms and made major reforms to the state that produced great results. He was defeated in the 2018 election by a leftist Democrat after a concerted effort including well-financed out-of-state interests.
The riots in Kenosha resulted from the shooting of a black criminal by police. The black has a history of assaulting police, illegal gun possession, and past charges for domestic abuse and a sex crime. He was evading arrest when he was shot. The criminal appears to have been reaching for a gun in his car when he was shot.
These riots are very likely to shift Wisconsin to the Trump column once again. We have been subjected to an entire Summer when left-wing governors and mayors intentionally have allowed violent unrest, looting and rioting to happen under their watches.
And while the Fake News media have consistently portrayed the riots falsely – one CNN reporter said that the protests were “mostly peaceful” as a building burned behind him – the vast majority of Americans, including Republicans but also independents and Democrats, are deeply disturbed by what they are witnessing.
Trump is being seen in contrast as the law-and-order president. That may have appeared to have been an abstraction up until this Summer, but now we have proof. He has repeatedly called for National Guard troops to protect cities.
But only mayors and governors of each state can call in each state’s National Guard and they finally did it in Minneapolis. That came after four full nights of violence that did $500 million in damage to the city. Kenosha has seen two nights of rioting so far with the far-left Democrat Wisconsin governor calling up only 100 Guard troops after the first night.
This 100 troops was barely enough; the second night of rioting went on unabated. 5,000 Guard troops should have been called out, but the governor failed in order to intentionally allow looting and burning to go on. Between the Army and Air National Guard, the Wisconsin governor has 10,000 troops at his disposal.
The big question remains: Why are these governors and mayors allowing these cities to burn? After all, most of the victims of this destruction are urban liberals.
And the answer is simple. American Democrats are part of the increasingly extremist socialist/communist international left. They do not care even about their own voters. Their goal is to create maximum chaos so as to paralyze law-abiding people and to allow militants to take over. This is the strategy of communists worldwide to take over whole countries.
This approach will not work in the US. The Republican party is totally attuned to what is going on. President Trump has repeatedly called out the violence in “Democrat-run” cities and states. Increasing numbers of Republican candidates are calling out the Democrat national convention and Joe Biden for not mentioning the riots at any time in any context. These charges are going to increase as election day approaches, to very good effect for Republican candidates, Nikitas3.com predicts.
Nikitas3.com believes that these riots are having a significant and cumulative effect on the presidential election among The Silent Majority. These are the people who do not appear on CNN or write essays for The New York Times. They work hard every day, pay their taxes, keep a low profile, abide by the law and are extremely upset – in private – about the riots, arson and looting. They are going to vote strongly Republican in November even if they are registered otherwise.
This includes Republicans along with independents and Democrats in Wisconsin. The Kenosha violence has alarmed the people of Wisconsin who have not seen such violence ever before. Wisconsin is 86% white and 6% black, with the blacks concentrated in Milwaukee. The overwhelmingly white and peaceful majority of the population is certainly very disturbed about these black riots and particularly about their racial component.
President Trump does have one alternative in this crisis and that is to call out the US Army to go to the cities and restore order. He can do this under the Insurrection Act of 1807, which is described like this on Wikipedia:
The Insurrection Act has been invoked throughout American history. In the 19th century, it was invoked during conflicts with Native Americans. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was invoked during labor conflicts. Later in the 20th century, it was used to enforce federally mandated desegregation, with Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy invoking the Act in opposition to the affected states’ political leaders to enforce court-ordered desegregation. More recently, governors have requested and received support most recently following looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and during the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
It is time for the president to call out the US military to protect our cities. It is considered to be a controversial idea but it is not really controversial at all when cities are suffering so badly and mayors are failing to act.
And as much as we conservatives are not unhappy to see the urban liberals consumed by their own ideology – Kenosha is a very liberal part of Wisconsin – these riots are not a good thing for the nation overall. They must be stopped.
Nikitas3.com predicts that the riots will will continue throughout the Autumn election season, giving the president a huge political boost. Nikitas3.com also believes that if there is unrest on election day in cities – which leftist factions probably are planning – that that will have a severe dampening effect on voter turnout in the Democrat-dominated cities which also will help to re-elect Trump.
When president Trump gave his inauguration speech on January 20, 2017, he said this:
“Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge…. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now,”
Here is what the far-left Slate website wrote about Trump’s quote as if there were no “carnage” and that it could never happen here:
But in many ways, he was depicting a dark hellscape of an America that was not really congruent with reality. Nor did it seem to bother itself much with the notion of constitutional checks, or with the basic promise of equality, justice, or oversight, or the rule of law. Instead, it was a populist promise to invisible Americans.
In fact Trump was 100% correct and that was even before the riots. He was talking primarily about the horrible conditions in our Democrat-controlled cities. And ‘carnage’ is putting it lightly, and it has gotten much worse this Summer with these riots.
Gun Sales Skyrocket
Gun sales are going through the roof as the riots rock some cities. This is happening as Americans see the police being restrained and intimidated while leftist prosecutors fail to charge rioters and looters for their actions. Breitbart News reported:
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reported that there have been nearly five million first time gun buyers thus far in 2020.
On August 24, 2020, NSSF contrasted the number of National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks from January 1, 2020, through July, 2020, with the number of checks from January 1, 2019, through July 2019. After adjusting for checks that were tied to concealed carry permits or other ends, other than sales, they ascertained that the number of checks for sales was 12.1 million.
NSSF then surveyed retailers and found that “40 percent of sales were conducted to purchasers who have never previously owned a firearm.”
Forty percent of 12.1 million is 4,840,000, or nearly five million sales.
NSSF senior vice president of general counsel Larry Keane commented on the new gun buyers, saying:
This is a tectonic shift in the firearm and ammunition industry marketplace and complete transformation of today’s gun-owning community. These first-time buyers represent a group of people who, until now, were agnostic regarding firearm ownership.
“That’s rapidly changing, and these Americans are taking hold of their God-given right to keep and bear arms and protect themselves and their loved ones,” Keane said.
Interestingly two of the speakers at the first night of the Republican convention were the McCloskeys, who were seen bearing firearms to defend their St. Louis home. This image is burned into the minds of concerned Americans as urban violence spikes.
