What If Democrats Lose?
Ray DiLorenzo
The Democrats sense they are going to lose this election. There are stark indications. First, Biden is nowhere to be found. He hides in his basement being hidden from reality by watching CNN. Then Hillary tells Biden not to concede the election under any circumstances and then Pelosi advises Biden not to debate Trump, “It will only legitimize Trump as President and give Trump an opportunity to make you look bad.”
There are also reports that the Democrats are going to cheat in Trump’s favor so as to report that Trump is conducting a fraudulent election. They can prove it, of course, because they did it.
If the Democrats lose this election, it is not difficult to imagine that they will go nuts, slash out at anything that moves in the wrong direction. The mobs are sufficiently riled and waiting for orders.
To partly paraphrase Victor Davis Hansen: The Democrats have made a Devil’s bargain. Marxists under Sanders provide the anarchy and chaos while Democrats watch their cities burn, having agreed to do almost nothing. They will keep COVID-19 alive as long as possible to keep the economy down. Never mind the human toll. When Democrats win, and at the time they were convinced they would win, Sanders will halt the rioting, having delivered a destroyed middle class, a badly wounded America. The Democrats will take the credit, looking like peacemakers. Sanders will then demand payment, a socialist America ready to be delivered to the globalists. And he will get it.
I believe the Democrats are in a pickle. They can’t reverse course and know that after the election or before, when the Durham investigations are over, there will be arrests and a call for their disbandment.
It started as a race struggle, accusing almost everyone of racism, but it was a feint. It now has morphed into a battle of the classes. A true Bolshevik Revolution. The battle to destroy the middle-class, the essence of America and Americanism. Marxism can never survive in a country with a strong middle-class. These are the hard working, and above all, self-reliant people that make America what it is, filled with opportunity for upward mobility, allowing people the fruit of their labor, a basic Biblical concept. The Left must eradicate them for Marxism to take hold. The globalists have demanded it, the Left has promised to deliver it. California has been the most successful with 4 million of their middle-class having exited these past 15 years.
The division between political camps is growing wider every day, if that is possible, but only one party is widening the distance. The Democrat Speaker of the House calls Republicans ‘enemies of the state’. Biden says that President Trump wants more violence. These accusations make no sense, of course, but they make it easy for us pundits to figure out Democrats. If you always translate what they say in opposite terms you will find their truth. When Pelosi says Republicans are enemies of the state, it is the opposite. When Biden says Trump wants more violence, it is the opposite. When Democrats say that Trump is working with the Russians, it is the opposite. They make it so easy.
Mobs are murdering people while private and public property is being destroyed. Families have lost their livelihoods. COVID-19, an historically minor pandemic, has been allowed to infect our society, shutting down the greatest economy we have ever seen. The human cost of expanding the power of Democrats grows daily, but they remain willing for hard-working Americans to pay the bill.
But now, the mood of the American people is beginning to change. Lest the polling organizations look foolish, they are forced to show the changing emotion of the country going against them. Once again, the Democrats have gone too far and took too big a bite.
There is no greater threat to evil than an aroused American public. We are beginning to see it. No more turning cheeks. No more being mere spectators. No more watching hoodlums attack innocent people. If the government will not or cannot protect you, you must decide to protect yourself and your family. Evil will always back off when confronted with equal or greater force.
Don’t think it can’t happen here. It is happening here. The Left has thought of everything…a pandemic to shut down the economy, mandatory face masks that psychologically turn people into faceless sheep, Trump rallies halted, race riots because several Blacks resisted arrest resulting in the police being neutralized, giving the rioters carte blanche.
If you don’t like what you see, wait until October. This is not the America as we knew it. There are forces at work that will do anything to rid themselves of Donald Trump. And they don’t care about you. The police have been effectively neutered, are under siege and most likely will just show up after the fact to pick up the bodies left by the mob.
We have to decide that we will not be led as sheep to the slaughter.
For the most part, you will be dealing with a mob. A mob is nothing but a dangerous, brainless herd. A mob will do things the individual taking part would never think of doing. A mob does not consider consequences, it has no empathy, and certainly hasn’t thought of any alternatives.
You must defend yourself. How you do that is your affair. Stay away from any crowds. Stock up on groceries. If the Leftists go postal, the trucks will stop rolling. Find out what kind of self-defense laws your state has. They will either be Stand Your Ground, Castle Doctrine, or Duty To Retreat. Vermont is listed as having ‘Other Defense Laws’. States like Montana, Wyoming, New Hampshire, and 23 other states have Stand Your Ground Laws where a person has no duty to retreat before using deadly force. A Castle Doctrine state generally will allow deadly force in one’s home or car. A Duty To Retreat state is the most restrictive of self-defense. They require you to retreat no matter where you are, IF POSSIBLE. States like New York, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin are Duty To Retreat states. Do your homework and learn your particular states’ defense laws. They do change.
We must not be driven down this path by scheming politicians, a sanctimonious and ignorant media, and cigar smoking men in dark places whose only interest is garnering more power and treasure.
We need to put this uprising to bed. We must decide that to remain as divided as we are will ultimately destroy this nation and millions of lives. If you think this all sounds irrational, again, wait until October. We can only hope and pray that thinking Americans on both sides of the political fence will find common ground and help put down this rebellion.
The Southern Democrat uprising in 1860 saw much pounding of chests and visions of glory. Four years later that glory faded with only death, suffering, and destruction enduring. There is room enough for everyone in this country, but no room for traitors.
History has been thrust upon us. We will either be a witness to a greater America or the greatest catastrophe this nation and the world has ever experienced. Without America, there will be no where else to go.

Portland Mayor: Let Rioting ‘Burn Itself Out’
Getty
Portland mayor Ted Wheeler (D.)—who has yet to provide his police department with consistent directives to quell the riots, arson, and looting that have plagued his city for months—told Oregon Public Radio his strategy was to let the violence “burn itself out.”
Wheeler told OPR reporter Rebecca Ellis last week that he expects daily protests in the city—which began in May following the death of George Floyd—to last for some time. He said he expects nightly violence that followed the protests “will ultimately burn itself out.” Washington Free Beacon
Editor’s note: One of the most irresponsible directives I have ever heard. What about the hundreds of 911 calls that have been left unanswered? What about the innocent people who have been assaulted, the property destroyed, the businesses and livelihoods that are never coming back? Why should the rioting burn itself out? The DA has already said he was not going to prosecute hundreds of riot-related crimes.
Senator Rand Paul and His Wife Attacked by BLM Mob as They Leave the White House Following RNC – Thanks Cops for ‘Saving Our Lives’ After Protesters Earlier Tried to Silence Trump’s Speech With Air Horns
Kentucky senator Rand Paul and his wife were last night attacked by a large mob of Black Lives Matter protesters who shoved the police escorting him out of the RNC conference, knocking one of the officers into the Senator.
Video shows Paul and wife Kelley being surrounded by dozens of activists and aggressively accosted as they leave the Republican National Convention, where Trump had just accepted the party’s nomination, as police officers try to hold the crowd back.
Later, video showed Black Lives Matter activists aggressively harassing people leaving the White House after Trump’s speech.
One man was punched in the back of the head and later knocked to the ground by a mob of activists who also threw water over him.
Editor’s note: Sen. Paul accused BLM of paying the protesters to show up, demands FBI investigation. Democrat protests are always lawless mobs while Republican protests always leave the area cleaner than how they found it.
Elderly Man Brutally Beaten in Kenosha as He Tries to Defend Burning Business From Looters
thepoliticalinsider
An elderly man in Kenosha, Wis., was brutally attacked and left with a broken jaw after defending two businesses from looters during unrest in the city Monday night, according to multiple reports.
Robert Cobb, 71, had responded to the Danish Brotherhood Lodge and The Mattress Shop in the city’s Uptown after after seeing live video of people setting the area on fire, leading him to use a fire extinguisher to spray people attempting to break into the establishments. The mattress store would later burn to the ground, Milwaukee’s FOX 6 reported.
“He sprayed them in the face so they had to take their masks off for identification,” said Pamela “Sue” Moniz, owner of The Mattress Shop, according to Kenosha News. “Someone pulled a gun and another person yelled, ‘Don’t shoot this man, don’t shoot this man.’”
Cobb was then hit in the head with a plastic bottle filled with concrete, knocking him to the ground. The fall broke his jaw in two places, split his nose and caused deep cuts to his head. Fox News
Editor’s note: Unless we all get together and find our unity, it will be coming to a neighborhood near you.
Aggressive Mob of White BLM Protesters Threaten and Film White Diners at DC Restaurants and DEMAND They Raise Their Fist and Show Solidarity With Them…. or Else
Twitter
A large crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters have accosted white diners outside several Washington, D.C. restaurants, demanding that they raise their fists to show solidarity with the movement.
Footage showing the demonstrators aggressively yelling at one woman in the Adams Morgan neighborhood went viral on social media and sparked a widespread backlash.
Many accused the protesters of acting like an ‘aggressive mob’ and using ‘intimidation tactics’ to order diners into submission. Responding to the footage, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough described the activists as ‘horrible people’.
The footage shows the woman, identified as Lauren Victor, being shouted at by white protesters after she refuses to raise her fist.
‘Are you a Christian?’ one of the women shout, outraged by the fact Victor was unwilling to raise her fist in solidarity.  Daily Mail
Editor’s note: Are you a Christian? These are godless communists demanding control over this country. This is going to get rugged. I’m disappointed in how many people succumbed to the intimidation and harassment. Where do you think these middle-class white do-nothings learned all this hate? Public school and university.
Report: More than 550,000 Mail-In Ballots Rejected Nationwide
AP
More than 550,000 mail-in ballots were rejected nationwide this primary season, according to a recent report released by National Public Radio.
The NPR report showed how legitimate ballots were not being counted, showing a higher rejection rate nationwide in the 2020 presidential primaries than in the 2016 presidential primaries when only 318,000 legitimate ballots were rejected.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that Florida, which had 18,000 mail-in ballots rejected in the 2020 primary election, had a lot of problems that went unaddressed with their mail-in ballot laws.
Two Democrat Super PACs have created a $7.5 million campaign to encourage the use of vote-by-mail. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, has repeatedly said that the process has led to fraud.
Trump has also warned activists could double-count ballots, print off their own ballots and sign them, or take ballots out of mailboxes. Breitbart
Editor’s note: Mail-in ballots have been easy to attack. The ballot signifies the voter’s party affiliation next to the bar code, D or R. One could easily remove ballots out of mail boxes that don’t show the ‘correct’ party. It is uncertain if ballots in the general election will be so marked. It is interesting that just about every state that is pushing for mail-in voting is a blue state. The Heritage Foundation and other conservative groups warn that voting by mail increases fraud.

Ground Swell of Support in the Battle Ground States

        The next national election will be contentious. Given that Democrats have literally lost their minds over the last one, they seem to be following a disastrous move to the left that will place them in a mental institution. There is no doubt that Democrats, especially the new socialists (e.g., the Squad) are overcoming the old warn down Dems like Pelosi and Schumer. They rant and rant a new secular socialist government with all vestiges of Judeo-Christianity removed. Blame all the white males for everything they deem wrong in America. Our forefathers who founded this great country with a great freedom-loving Constitution would certainly roll their eyes and turn over in their graves.

 

Not many people are aware of the backdoor election scheme that the Socialists Democrats have been planning and pushing on the American voters. It is called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and Mail-In Voting.

 

Democrats are planning to functionally eliminate rural red states and leave the selection of the president to populous blue states, even if it means depending on widespread voter fraud, ballot harvesting and mass voting of illegal aliens in California, New York, and other states.

 

Ballot harvesting is the practice of collecting absentee ballots by third parties and submitting them for the voter. It is illegal in every state except California. It smacks of voter fraud. With millions of illegal immigrants in California of voting age, the sanctuary policy still in force, registering to vote when they apply for a driver license, they could conceivably swing any election.

 

So far, the states that have passed or joined the compact are of no surprise. California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington State have signed on so far. These states represent 181 electoral votes and 67% of the electoral votes needed. Other states may join in. Anyone familiar with the political climate today can see a pattern here. They are all predominantly Democrat states.

 

This agreement is to make sure the candidate that wins the popular vote becomes president. The Democrats will no longer abide by an Electoral College system.

 

Contrary to the popular belief of the mal-educated today, we do not live in a democracy. We reside in a Constitutional Republic. In a democracy, or mob rule as some would put it, leaders are not constrained by a constitution. Our Bill of Rights in the Constitution spells out the limits of government power…what government cannot do. For instance, our government cannot deny you freedom of speech, the right to assembly, or infringe on your right to own a firearm, because it is spelled out in the Constitution. They are rights granted to us by God, not men. In a democracy, there could simply be a vote to decide what rights you will have, or not have and change with the political winds. A citizen will no longer be able to depend on a Constitution that forever guarantees those rights but will have to rely upon on a fickle congress or electorate instead.

 

The intent of the Electoral College is to give every state and its people a voice on who becomes president. The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A minimum of 270 are required to win the presidency. Each number of electors equals the number of the state’s senators and congressmen so that the electors represent both the people and the states.

 

Since the Constitution was made by the states, for the states and its people, the Electoral College system was designed to give a voice on the selection of the president to every state. For instance, California has about 36 million people and 55 electoral votes, whereas Wyoming has 563,000 people and 3 electoral votes, making California 64 times larger than Wyoming. But California is only 18 times more powerful in electors than Wyoming, giving Wyoming a political voice.

 

If we elected presidents only by popular vote, only the largest cities in the most populous states would have a voice on who becomes president, leaving most of the states unheard. If that were the case, no candidate would even bother to campaign in most of the states, and the needs of those states would be inconsequential with those states being subservient.

 

The problem will be amplified by the millions of fraudulent votes in primarily Democrat areas and the lack of voter ID laws in those states. Remember, it is legal for non-citizens to register to vote for local elections in cities such as San Francisco and other cities across the country. According to Old Dominion University, 6.4% of illegal aliens voted in the 2008 presidential election. Giving that 80% of illegal aliens lean Democratic, an election could be tipped. Democrats are fully aware of this and plan to take full advantage of it.

 

This compact is arguably unconstitutional, but not tested for voter fraud. If the next Democratic presidential candidate wins the popular vote but loses the Electoral College as constitutionally applied, both parties will declare their candidate a winner. This will create much more than a constitutional crisis. It could create a war. It did in 1860 with 650,000 dead four years later.

 

The civil war occurring now is a real civil war and is the first phase where insurrectionists made progress into some of our major cities like Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland. The Socialists desire complete power over the American People in a tyrannical power grab and move to dominate the American Citizens. President Trump firmly understands the dynamics that are occurring, but he cannot do it alone. Save the Republic and America. We must Stand up as brave Patriots from sea to shining sea and across the fruited plains. Divine Intervention will be in play, so Pray, Stand Up and Do something today……….

COVID Relief

COVID Relief Should Protect American—Not Chinese—Defense Companies | Opinion

Coronavirus By the Numbers: COVID-19 Cases Reach 15.5 Million Worldwide Amid Increases In US, Brazil

You know there’s a problem in the federal government when bureaucrats happily give millions of COVID-19 relief dollars to Chinese defense companies but shut out funding to key American businesses. Unfortunately, that’s the problem the country now faces.

Between $192 to $419 million of the nation’s COVID stimulus funds have gone to more than 125 companies that Chinese interests either own or have a significant investment stake in. At least eight of these beneficiaries have a direct tie to the People’s Liberation Army. This concerning list includes Continental Aerospace Technologies, a state-owned defense company that received up to $10 million. Two subsidiaries of China’s HNA Group, a Fortune 500 company involved in aviation and financial services, received up to $1 million each.

Why are our nation’s procurement leaders allowing Chinese defense companies to receive more funding than many of their U.S. counterparts?

Part of the reason for this paradox is the new, dangerous movement among partisans in Congress to extend the “Defund the Police” movement to the Pentagon. In the current deliberations over the 60th Annual National Defense Authorization Act, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has laid bare this movement’s intentions, writing an op-ed in Politico entitled, “Defunding the Pentagon: The Liberal Case.” These dangerous, partisan defunding initiatives caused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to quip on the Senate floor, “We’ve moved on from defunding local police to defunding the United States Armed Forces. Maybe we’ll be sending social workers on overseas deployments, when they aren’t too busy responding to violent crimes.”

One would think that Democrats would find taxpayer money benefiting the People’s Liberation Army a bigger problem than it being used to fund the U.S. military. Curiously, however, few—if any—have voiced opposition on that front.

Big government mandates have also contributed to this inexcusable disparity between funding for certain Chinese and American companies. Most of the problem comes from the Small Business Administration’s “affiliation rule,” which prevents any company owned by private equity from receiving COVID-19 relief. That’s a problem, considering that private equity companies own many of the mission-critical suppliers to the U.S. military that are struggling during this pandemic.

In a recent statement to The New York Times, Bharat Ramamurti, a former staffer for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and now serving on the congressional committee overseeing the COVID-19 relief, did not mince his words in the reasoning for their exclusion. Ramamurti said private equity firms “do fabulously well when their risky bets pay off,” and that “they should absorb risks when things go badly.”

The U.S. government’s funding of Chinese defense companies at their American competitors’ expense comes while China is increasing its military capabilities at an alarming rate. According to Michèle A. Flournoy, a former undersecretary of defense for policy, China now possesses the capabilities to attack our weapons systems through advanced electronic welfare, cyber-capabilities and precision-guided missiles. American forces in the Pacific are also reportedly “highly vulnerable” to attacks from the emboldened communist regime.

Thankfully, a coalition of 16 senators, including Cory Gardner (R-CO), John Cornyn (R-TX), Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Todd Young (R-IN), seems to be working to end this harmful funding discrepancy between certain Chinese and the U.S. contractors. They wrote an August 5 letter to McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), asking them to “consider provisions to support and provide flexibility for businesses across the aviation industry,” such as airport concessionaires and aviation manufacturing.

If a company’s connection to China’s communist regime does not factor into its eligibility for stimulus funding, neither should a U.S. defense firm’s connection to private equity. To weather this unprecedent public health and economic crisis, all struggling U.S. businesses should receive the relief that they need—especially when their continued operations remain crucial for protecting America’s safety and security.

Some of these senators are even pushing a step further to combat the alarming amount of assistance that Chinese defense firms receive from government bureaucrats and procurement officers.

Gardner, for example, recently proposed America First amendments to the NASA Authorization Act of 2019. The amendments would require the Government Accountability Office to review all of the aerospace contracts that the federal government has with entities affiliated with the People’s Republic. Not only would these amendments prevent Beijing from compromising U.S. intellectual property and military intelligence, but they would also stop these foreign companies from taking predatory actions that harm the continued operations and existence of those in the U.S.

The fight for American military superiority shouldn’t disappear because of a pandemic. Here’s hoping that Congress works to combat the government’s disparity in treatment between certain U.S.- and Chinese-connected defense suppliers before it’s too late.
