“You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin — just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.
You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” And this — this is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater’s “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits — not animals.” And he said, “There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”
A good rule for politics, if not in life, is this: when people tell you what they are going to do, listen. If someone is threatening to castrate you, don’t hand them a razor and say, “I don’t think they’re really going to do it.” While campaign promises in general are often not kept, those that increase the power of the victor usually take high priority. The Democratic leaders are telling America, both implicitly and explicitly, this: if they win the House, Senate, and White House, they’ll do whatever it takes to undo what Trump has accomplished. Note the astonishingly cynical nature of it all. Most leaders, like Chuck Schumer, are plainly, nakedly admitting that, first chance they get, they will turn over the board and dump all of the chess pieces on the floor. Entirely and exclusively because they lost.
The forces arrayed against President Trump and us average Americans are powerful. Democrats, the left, global corporate interests, Big Tech, the mainstream media, leftist-controlled education institutions, foreign adversaries (read China), and DC lifers. They aim to destroy liberty and restrict, if not erase, our rights.
In blue states, Democrats draconian policies have crushed economies, destroying tens of thousands of small businesses and throwing millions of people out of work. Joe Biden is threatening a national shutdown to “defeat” COVID if he’s elected president. Doing so would plunge the nation into a depression as bad or worse than what the nation experienced in the 1930s.
CONTESTS TO WATCH: Are two upsets in the making? Michigan: GOP senatorial nominee John James is neck-in-neck with incumbent Democrat, Gary Peters. Minnesota: Republican Jason Lewis is closing fast on incumbent Tina Smith, who was appointed to fill the position. (see more in the state synopses)
North Carolina: (Not reported below) Democrat challenger Cal Cunningham’s lead over incumbent Thom Tillis has evaporated, per a recent Rasmussen survey. Cunningham’s numbers are heading south after revelations about multiple affairs surfaced, including one tryst that may have occurred when Cunningham was on active military duty.
WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court on Monday refused to disturb a ruling by Pennsylvania’s highest court that extended the battleground state’s deadline for accepting mail-in ballots, a win for Democrats that gives voters more time to navigate postal delays and avoid in-person voting.
As we have observed, the polls continue to suggest Biden is headed for a big with. Some of the battleground states are close and getting closer. Yet overall Biden still looks strong. The Democratic campaign/mainstream media continues to run interference for Biden by ignoring stories that may help Trump and rarely holding Biden accountable for anything. They ask Biden tough questions at two times: seldom and never.
Emails from Hunter Biden were released this week. They prove that Hunter sold access to his Dad to get huge payments from the Ukrainian company, Burisma, who has testified that they considered the payments to be a Biden bribe. Burisma was under investigation at the time Joe threatened Ukraine with withholding a billion dollars in U. S. aid unless they fired the prosecutor. Which they did. Biden bragged about doing this on camera. Not smart. Joe has said previously that he has never discussed his son’s business with him and that he never met with Burisma officials. Those claims have never been credible. And we now have proof they were lies.
An old saw holds that all politicians are scum, whore-chasing liars. I think you could put the word “people” in the place of “politicians” and still be pretty accurate.
I marvel at those who act offended – shocked – that an elected official might lie. The preening, condescending, morally self-assured anti-Trumpers remind one of Captain Renault in Casablanca. He says he is “shocked” to find there is gambling going on at Rick’s. He is then presented his winnings.
When you see news reports by the mainstream media crowing about polls showing Biden running away with the General Election, don’t buy it. The MSM tried the same stunt in 2016, when Hillary was supposed to beat Trump in a cakewalk.
Predictions among conservatives that the president will beat Biden in a landslide are far too optimistic. Yes, President Trump typically under polls, but, in fact, predictions of a landslide for Trump appear to be overstated (Flyover will gladly eat it’s words, if wrong). Expect another nailbiter. This presidential contest is bound to be close. Flyover is convinced that the president wins in an honest election.
Two competing narratives are being promoted regarding the 2020 election.
One says Joe Biden is far ahead, people hate Trump, and the public polls are accurate. National polls show Biden in the lead, and in many the lead is double digits. If the polls giving Biden the biggest leads are even close to accurate, he is headed for the largest victory of a Democratic candidate in our lifetimes.
