As part of his typical, “get the Democrat Cats to chase his Twitter fueled, Red Laser Dot,” President Trump effectively trolled the Democrats once again, simply by pointing out just what a horrid place West Baltimore is. Tying Democrat icon Elijah Cummings to that disaster, was just gravy. West Baltimore of course, is a big part of Cummings’ voter base.
My colleague, Elizabeth Vaughn, ably pointed out that predictably, the left immediately went to the race card, enabled by Chris Wallace, senior editor of the Never Trump, Fox News Network.
From my foxhole, this is a perfect set up for what the Military calls, “the pursuit phase” of the battle. There comes a point (if we do it right) that the defenders are so overwhelmed and demoralized, that they are ready to give up. Often an attack from an unexpected direction will be the final event that causes the enemy to break and run. That is where President Trump is, in his attack on the left for 2020.
Democrats just aren’t getting it. Embracing shall I say “non-standard” behaviors and supporting terrorists, are just two of the policy issues that are alienating Obama Blue Collar voters that took a chance on Trump back in 2016. President Trump isn’t worried about retaining those voters. He famously said, “What do you have to lose?” More than enough of them replied , “Nothing,” and pulled the lever for him. Well, he has been hard-nosed about fulfilling his promises. Our economy isn’t just on fire. It’s a blast furnace. Black and Hispanic unemployment is at the lowest level ever recorded. We are actually above, “statistically full employment.” This is causing wages to rise. Those voters aren’t going back to the Democrat plantation.
Moreover, it appears some of the denizens of these Democrat enclaves are tired of being taken for granted. Here is a response from one of Rep. Cummings’ more vocal constituents.
The “raaayciss” card appears to have expired, which takes us to another Trump promise (about to be) kept. The Supreme Court just handed The President yet another victory. As reported by my colleague here, SCOTUS has declared that President Trump may use Military funds to build a border wall. As I mentioned HERE and HERE, all President Trump has to do to prevail in 2020, assuming continued economic growth, is to show some new wall finished and more being built. SCOTUS just gave him that.
Here’s how I see the attack from an unexpected direction playing out. President Trump campaigns in Baltimore, San Francisco and several other “solid Democrat” strongholds that also qualify as “Third World S***holes.” He doesn’t have to spend a lot of time there. He just has to hold a few rallies. It’s likely that he won’t get majorities in those places, but that’s not important. Based on obviously improving conditions, he will gain enough Black, Latino and other minority voters, to cause the Democrats to “break and run.” An added benefit will obviously be, that he will get enough of those voters to put the “Interstate Popular Vote” initiative to bed, once and for all.
I had the chance to discuss the above with David Webb today. He agreed,
Resident Trump needs to expand the battlefield and go to as many of these liberal cities as possible.
This next election isn’t going to be a squeaker. President Donald J. Trump is going to win in an electoral and popular vote landslide. All he has to do, is attack the leftists where they live. Baltimore, San Fransisco and Detroit….and any other Democrat dominated Third World Hole.
