Let's watch Trump's rally, live-streaming from Greenville, North Carolina.



ADDED: After listing his accomplishments in office: "But could you imagine what it could have been if we didn't have that witch hunt?" He hears a voice in the crowd. He points to the person. "You said it. He said it. I won't say it, 'cause it's a terrible word, so I will not say that this guy said if we didn't have the bullshit. That's right." Big cheers.

AND: He goes after Congresswoman Omar, and the crowd chants, "Send her back/Send her back."

I saw Joe Biden in Council Bluffs today. 500 people, tops. Joe spoke for 18 minutes with a TelePrompTer. Weak.

Joe was surprised to learn this week that billions of opioid pills was distributed during his time as VP. Maybe he should have done something. Total loser.

Rally scheduled to follow expected Mueller appearance in Congress. Another rally next week?

Look at all them racists.

gilbar said...

serious question:

What Person that voted for Trump in 2016 WON'T be voting for him this time?
Has anyone heard anyone say that THEY won't be voting for him, and if so; Why?

Tariffs? World Situation? Fed up with Trump?
Chuck, I'm not trying to tempt you into breaking your sabbatical; but when you return to your old ways, i'd be interested in hearing about Your intentions?
Who would have to be running against Trump for you to not vote for him?
Who would have to be running against Trump for you to vote for him?
I'll wait until you've flown your 25 (times 2)

The rest of you? What have you heard? I'm seeing More Trump signs in iowa Now, than i did in 2016 (of course, that might just mean people think it's safer now)

More people will vote for Trump in 2020. More people will vote in general. It will be a massive turn out and it will crush all records.

John henry said...

Not watching the speech yet. I'll download the audio and listen in the car.

But I don't like him calling AOC "cortez" I think that is beneath him and it is gramatically wrong.

Her name is Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. If he doesn't want to use both names, I am fine with that. But she would be Alexandra Ocasio, or just plain Ocasio.

I suspect that this may piss off people in the Hispanic (whoever they may be) community. It annoys me.

But if that's all he does to annoy me, I guess I can live with it.

“COUNCIL BLUFFS — Some 200 people arrived at The Grass Wagon in Council Bluffs early Wednesday to listen to presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Connie Gronstal, a family friend of Joe Biden and a cancer survivor, introduced Biden shortly after 11 a.m.

“Good afternoon, Council Bluffs. It’s great to be back,” he said to a cheering crowd.”

He goes after Congresswoman Omar, and the crowd chants, "Send her back/Send her back."

And as a matter of law, they are entirely correct. If she is guilty of immigration fraud, then she is not a citizen, she is not eligible to be a congressthing, and she should, indeed, be sent back to the shithole whence she came.

The clown car should really just all quit. Nobody in the back of the VW Bug really wants to go to Milwaukee in 2020 and face what comes after. They should divert to the nearest methadone clinic and have a good time.

I guess somebody has to take the bullet but if any of them dream of having a political future, they don't want it. I think the virtues of Lawyer Avenatti display themselves in this instance prominently. He can run from jail, can't he?

Barring anything that sensible, they should just let Biden or Sanders have it. Those two have nothing else to live for, so go out with a bang, comrades! How about a Sanders Biden ticket? (Biden is better as the VP, he has so much experience.)

Drago said...

steve uhr: "Drago —which dems have defended infanticide?"

LOL

Its never wise to go the Full Inga Ignorance of The Obvious route.

Virginia, New York and Vermont have already passed bills which allow it. Other dems in multiple other states are pushing similar bills. Every dem candidate is on record as supporting complete unrestricted "abortion" which includes post-birth killing, and the dems across the country have opposed every bill offered to protect babies born alive.

Other than all that I guess there is no evidence dems support that.

LOL

Yes. Every single one of them opposes any restrictions on the ability of the mother and doctor to kill the baby at birth and immediately post birth.

You're welcome.

Fortunately, one democrat in the Rhode Island legislature, channeling Daniel Patrick Moynihan, was so appalled by the dem bill there he voted against it, thereby stopping it in committee by a 5-4 vote.

Thanks for staying "informed".

Drago —which dems have defended infanticide?

The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. So I think this was really blown out of proportion …

Democrat GOVERNOR Ralph Northam

The Democrat party endorses and protects infanticide period.

Every single presidential candidate for sure.

I would like to see any one of them propose any limits whatsoever on abortion. But every one of them is on record supporting late/post term abortion.

The fact that it is electoral suicide in the democrat party to put any limits at all on abortion including post birth shows exactly what democrat voters think.

Achilles said that every single Democratic candidate is afraid to say one good thing on behalf of all the babies, who are overwhelmingly babies of color, who are deprived of life, often painfully, by the abortion regime of our day.

Achilles was right, and no decent person can vote for a single one of those Democrats.

So Trump has put AOC's face on the Dem party. Pelosi was trying to distance the Dems from AOC, Trump intervened, brief scuffle with the Usuals saying the Usual ("Trump has ruined everything"), and ... the Dems emerge with AOC's face on every one of them. Admit - It was a great move. So, we'll see what comes next. Probably, after "Trump the Commie" and "Trump the Nazi," will come the worst of all - "Trump the American." Both parties will run on the same issue "The American President should be pro-American?" Yes or No. "The Constitution sucks" Yes or No? "Make America Somalia-Venezuela so people stop coming." Yes or No.

If I knew she called herself Sandy Cortez in school, I had forgotten.

So now, he'll let people go around setting their hair on fire about a lack of respect and knowledge of Hispanic names for a few days.

Then he can say "Jeez, she's the one who doesn't respect her father and is ignorant of hispanic naming conventions. Complain to her not me."

Sadly, I am behind the curve again. I should have trusted him to know what he is doing.

Not annoyed anymore.

Thanks, Beast.

Beasts of England said...

Exactly, wildswan!! A week ago AOC implied that Pelosi was a racist. A few days later, Trump defended Nancy by saying that wasn't true. Then, on Sunday, he Twitter-stomped the Jihad Squad, forcing Nan to say that Trump wanted to 'make America white again'. The left and the NeverTrumpers then declared that Trump had truly screwed the pooch!! He had unified the left!

But then, the four nitwits decided to hold a presser and overplay their weak hand for the entire country to see. The new faces of the unified Democrat Party laid the biggest political egg of the modern era. The ads have already been written.

Jake Tapper tried to impart a little reality onto his leftie followers today, pretty much outlining what I mentioned above - even citing a Dem member of the House who shared his assessment - but was completely trashed in the replies. His anonymous politico was smart enough to recognize that Trump had destroyed them in this match, but no one wanted to hear it.

Trump is showing himself to be a master politician. And enjoying it every minute!

The might not only be wrong, but contrary.

Sarah Hoyt says that in her community Ocasio-Cortez type names are viewed with some derision: "double-barreled surnames" is the term used, for people who pretentiously demand you burden yourself with all their extra syllables, as if it was a title.

"Would Her Honorable Grace Sandy like to order now?"

"Thank you, Alexandria Contiga Occasia Menendez Cortez."

"Excuse me? Please address me as Alexandria Contiga Occasia Menendez Guadalupe Cortez."

"Apologies, Your Grace..."

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Don't know how the game is played? It's simple, you can't say Dems support infanticide as long as there is one Democrat out there (somewhere) who doesn't support it.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Democrats don't support infanticide, they only enact laws to permit it and block attempts to stop it. Same can be said of their belief in open borders.

Expect the MSM to go crazy in 2020 trying to deny that Dems believe in the things they actively push for. I'm not sure that's going to work much longer. Media credibility has been sacrificed on the alter of Orange Man Bad. Voters are more skeptical than ever. I think fewer and fewer are willing to deny the obvious.

I think his greatest strength is his lack of fear. He uses Twitter to gain a voice and forces the media to cover him. The Democrats can't hide from him and the media can't protect them. Trump uses Twitter to fearlessly say what many of us think.

Trump calls BS on political correctness. Real Americans are not politically correct.

She is of a vanishing type in academia and in the Democratic party, where liberalism is being eliminated in favor of leftism. Those who decry the current political atmosphere should know that the response to liberalism was conservatism, but the response to leftism is Trump.

I didn't vote for Trump. Now that I understand what leftists have in store for people like me, I will vote for him. And no, to answer a question from earlier, I don't know a single Trump voter from 2016 who has changed her/his mind.

Prior post for TD. Althouse likes blogging and lacks strength of will not to pander these past several years in the guise of cruel neutrality, or whatever. Commenters appreciate being pandered to. Me, not interested.

I always assumed it was because Instapundit used to link often to Althouse when he did not have comments. They came, they commented, they stayed. Probably some latin for that..

Geez as Roger Kimball (I think that was his name) said on Tucker Carlson tonight, he's also a "person of color". A sort of pale pink in his case. As for me when I get a bit of sun (easy to do in California) I'm sometimes thought of as "swarthy", which means that I'm probably browner than that nut job Hispanic Congressman from Chicago--although I didn't start out that way.

"I think his greatest strength is his lack of fear. He uses Twitter to gain a voice and forces the media to cover him. The Democrats can't hide from him and the media can't protect them. Trump uses Twitter to fearlessly say what many of us think. "

Yeah, but what happens when the Democrats, the technosocialists in Silicon Valley, and the media (but I repeat myself) decide that the fallout from banning Trump from Twitter is more palatable than his winning re-election in 2020? What then?

They don't give a shit about accusations of hypocrisy or unfairness. Any decent lawyer could drag out any lawsuits until after the election. If they cut Trump off from Twitter and ride out the outrage--then what? How does he continue to get his message out?

She married her brother but I guess that's ok with the dems because she did it to fraudulently get into our country.

She became a citizen at the age of 17 in 2000. The questionable marriage thing happened in 2009 with a man who was a British citizen.

What a show. It is like Trump has gone electric. And the few RINOs left are screaming for the old folk songs about nobly losing everything.

RINOs, "Judas!"

Trump can't be intimidated- it really is that simple. This is actually rare quality, especially in politicians, but then Trump really isn't a regular politician of any kind we are familiar with in the US.

harrogate,

All the regulars here greatly admire Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and they despise Omar. I'm having trouble putting my finger on the reason, though, help me out.

I can't be racism, they're both black. It can't be sexism, they're both female. It can't be national origin, they're both Somali. Help me out here...

Harrogate pines for genocidal dictators:

"...Omar’s family fled Somalia due to their complicity in the genocidal regime of the dictator Siad Barre"

" it’s kind of nuts that Americans sacralize foreign elites like Omar (her family was high-enough ranking in the old dictatorship that when it fell, her fellow Somalis wanted to kill them as vengeance) from the worst-run countries on Earth and pay them to lecture us on how the only thing that will save us is letting in more of them."

I'm all for sending Harrogate back to Somalia with her, just to prove to him we're not racists.

And it's really reach for people like Harrogate to accuse me of racism, when I volunteered to transfer to Bravo Company (3rd LAR) because they were going to Somalia, risking their lives to keep black kid from starving to death. Harrogate and his ilk just pretend to like blacks on the internet to score cheap political shots.

She her back. Send him with her.

I think it's his past failures. He knows that success is the child of failure. He's done it enough times - screwed up, picked himself up, and gone on to accomplish greater things. So Trump is not afraid of failure, he's not afraid overplaying his hand and getting bit. The GOP is so afraid of screwing up that they won't even take the field, they don't go for the ball because they are too worried about fouling out. Anyone who's played sports knows what happens when you fall into that mindset. You lose. Again and again and again.

When I was in the Marines I hated my Battalions motto. But there is a deep wisdom to it:

Victory to the bold!

Trump wins because he is bold enough to risk failure.

Same here. I've met alot of people who were tepid Trump supporters in 2016, more anti-Hillary than pro-Trump. Now they would crawl across broken glass to vote Trump in 2020.

I have not met a single person who has gone back in the other direction.

Fen said...

More people will vote for Trump in 2020. More people will vote in general.

No, hatred of whitey and embracing domestic and foreign terrorism is not going to motivate the Democrats to come out and vote.

It will be an early night. And 3 months later no one will remember if it was Biden or Harris or whatshisname that lost.

wwww said...

Disagree. 2020 is gonna be off-the-charts. Massive turn out for Trump. Massive turn out for Democrats. Doesn't matter who the D candidate is. Don't know where the chips land. The excitement Trump injects inspires support and a counter-reaction. He excites everybody across the spectrum. And it's a Presidential vote. It's gonna be crazy turn out and crazy long lines to vote. My guess: Wisconsin & Florida will be close and counting will continue fairly late. Both states are split down the middle and the way the vote comes in is slow. Miami due to long lines they'll be waiting in line pretty late for Florida, 8:00 9:00 pm.

This is the summertime. Everyone is at the lake & BBQs & this is the low point of caring about politics. All the news stories should be about sharks. Imagine what's coming in Oct 2020. It's gonna be off the charts.

People don't vote when they are bored. Policy debates are boring. Traditional politicians are boring. Ain't nobody bored.

The sham and bigamous marriage was to her brother and it was so he could stay in the country. I believe there was also student aid fraud involved.

Please. You rednecks were saying the same thing for decades. You’re just belligerent fake patriots is all it is.


Remember when left wingers believed it was wrong to use slurs and question others' patriotism?

Me neither. I remember when they pretended to so they could attack others. But they never actually believed it.

"I've met alot of people who were tepid Trump supporters in 2016, more anti-Hillary than pro-Trump. Now they would crawl across broken glass to vote Trump in 2020."

I am one of these people. I didn't vote for Trump in 2016 because I am a MA voter and knew a vote for Trump would count for nothing. I didn't particularly like him then, but thought he was the best of the available choices aka: not Hillary.

I will vote for him in 2020 though I expect it still won't count in true blue MA. It might count, that's a big might, because a lot more people in my little orbit openly express support for Trump. They like what he's been accomplishing, they like the fact that they and their family members are working, they agree that illegal immigration must be addressed, they really are tired of The Resistance, and none of the current Dem candidates get them excited.

A lot can change between now and then, but the current arc of the campaign makes that unlikely.

Big Mike said...

I see that harrowgate thinks the way to win voters to his candidates is to tell everyone who isn't already supportive of his candidates that they are "rednecks" and "false patriots."

I think you're on the right track, harrowgate. Keep it up. Better yet, dial it up to 11, no, dial it up to 12.

Jamie said...

Mark, Mark... Melania speaks well of her adopted country, which has also happily adopted her. The president's tweets were aimed at people who believe that the way their dysfunctional home or ancestral countries do things should be the model for a radical transformation of the United States.

But you knew that.

Racism is such fun, we don’t need laws anymore, just laws of rhetoric and emotion.

Leland said...

We know from the book "Shattered" that the DNC placed people in the crowd at the 2016 convention to start chants to drown out Bernie supporters. I always wonder, when I see these news story about chants at Trump rallies; how many are staged? After all, wouldn't the appropriate chant be "Go Home" rather than "Send Her Home". Trump didn't threaten to deport Omar. Alas, it takes a certain kind of person to attend a political rally anyway.

Gahrie said...

Amadeus 48 said...

In general, the deal has been that anyone can come here, embrace our civic religion (equality before the law, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and support for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights) and become an American. America isn't perfect, but it keeps moving towards the ideals of the civic religion. Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

I don't think the Squad buys that program. They have a different program in mind, where people are judged by the historic failings of others, and rewards are handed out by ethnic and racial identity judged according to who, whom. And who does the judging? People like the Squad. Ask not what you can do for your country; ask what your country can do for you.

It is hard to see how the Squad wins that argument.


Quaestor said...

All the regulars here greatly admire Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and they despise Omar. I'm having trouble putting my finger on the reason, though, help me out.

Omar is a doctrinaire Muslim true believer of the kind favored by ISIS, Hamas, Boko Haram, and Somalia's own Al Shabaab. She is also a rabid anti-Semite.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an atheist and an admirer of the United States and especially its constitution, a true classical liberal.

Helped out now?

alanc709 said... "Hmm..... I don't recall any former Klan members being Republican senators."

Strom Thurmond. He's their one. He switched parties in 1964. And he became the face of evil that proved that racists are Republicans, even as they made former-Klan-member Robert Byrd the President Pro-Tem of the Senate (and fourth in line for the Presidency).

I missed the part where Melania complained about how horrible the United States is. Can you point that out for me? You know, one of those citation thingies.

n.n said...

Omar is this petite pretty little.... terrorist.

She is a "minority" leader who, based on the diversity doctrine, pursues immigration reform to progress her "minority" leader status, and Democrat standing, at the expense of American civil rights and lives, mitigation of casualties and collateral damage at both ends of the bridge and throughout, and emigration reform in their native nations.

n.n said...

She is one of millions of immigrants who have assimilated and integrated into American society, who do not hope and dream to recycle the climate and environment they departed, and do not aspire to the democratic leverage and incentives of "minority" status and leadership.

I think the proper term is a suggestion that Mark keep plucking that chicken, but in this case, the porcine reference seems appropriate.

Plucking a chicken is work. Can't see Mark actually doing something productive.

I love collective nouns like porcine. Caprine, cervine, ovine, canine, feline, bovine, equine, galline, and so on.

Mark made me think of another....as(s)inine.

Harrogate scores an own goal. Fails to realize it.

Yes. Inga claims her thousands and thousands of conservative 'friends' are all voting against him next time.

He might as well give up now.

Key observation. My college roommate's father was the same way. He had been a millionaire (that was long ago) three or four times and broke three times. Fortunately for my roommate, he ended his life on top.

Men like that, and they seem to be mostly men, don't give up. They keep at it and learn from mistakes.

Kirk Parker said...

Quaestor, of course I know that, did I really need to put literal <sarcasm> tags around my statement?
