The Girl Who Hugged Trump In Atlanta Is a Treasure

Oh, my, gosh - I just want to eat her UP.

Donald Trump walked into a Chik-Fil-A in Altlanta Wednesday to order some food (Karen said he'd been in town for a big fundraiser), and one of the most memorable campaign visits anywhere ever just exploded across the screens of the people who weren't so excited they forgot to film it.

The girls at the counter were all as giddy as 4th graders, and Trump was in his element.

Donald Trump just walked into a Chick-fil-A in Atlanta and ordered 30 milkshakes! What do you notice about their reaction?

There were so many people just beside themselves to be there, and it seemed every last one of them wanted to at least get close to the former president. Schmaybe even get lucky enough to touch him or catch a selfie standing alongside for posterity. It was just electric.

Everyone's reactions - from the crowd's to the obvious pleasure Trump took in the encounters - really made you smile.

One tall, striking young lady spoke up over the din to tell the president: 

"I don't care what the media tells you, Mr. Trump. We support you."

There wasn't a single, contrary word from the crowd when she said it. Oh, you know Trump had to get a hug after that, and that girl was just beside herself.

It turns out someone got her name. Michaelah Montgomery was invited to appear on Fox and Friends this morning, and all I can say is, "WOWSAHS."

She's frickin' terrific in an illuminating interview.

...The general consensus or social media would have you thinking that if President Trump were to show up to the HBCU campuses or walk around the HBCU community, that, like, some angry mob would form or a riot would ensue and that he would not be welcome. And clearly the sentiment in that room the other day was the complete opposite. He was very welcome. People were excited to see him. People showed up in support of him. And people were, of course, from all four institutions within the AEC [sic], the local HBC community in Atlanta. And they all showed up in support of him...

The Biden campaign had best be sweating bullets after getting to listen to her for a little bit more, and it seems like they already are.

The blue smear machine went into immediate overdrive because of the engaging young woman's appeal. Intrepid Google sleuths quickly found out she was a *gasp* young Republican activist who's worked for several conservative grassroots groups, including Blexit.

Yeah? So?

They're also trying to pounce with a "HAH! Not some rando black girl!" The problem is that no one ever claimed she was random. She was attending and says quite specifically that she brought her students to see the former president. If she's tied into local GOP doings, as she might well be, I can tell you from experience that the word goes out, and supporters gather. It's not a thing. Try to find a Biden-Harris gathering that isn't almost exclusively fresh-faced young things who are Democratic operatives.

Shoot, blue-side young enthusiasts even went to Youngkin rallies in khakis and shades, if you remember. Twenty-something Democratic troops are that rabidly involved.

As Ms. Montgomery's got a minimal number of contacts in all these damning gotchas this fellow thinks he's collected, I have to think her consultant dreams are just starting to take off. 70+ is nothing for any of the people I've ever worked with; even the twenty-somethings.

So, woof - that Chik-Fil-A visit must have really wigged Dems out. Ms. Montgomery has to be their worst nightmare. They're sure acting like she is.

POTATUS was already in trouble with black men - he starts losing the more reliably Democratic base they had among black women?

Biden Loses Support Among Black Men, WSJ Poll Finds

New survey of seven battleground states also shows some Black women are weighing other options

President Biden faces a dual-natured challenge to shore up his support with Black Americans, one of the Democratic Party’s most loyal constituencies.

Perhaps the most urgent: More Black men said they plan to back Donald Trump this fall, according to a recent Wall Street Journal poll of seven swing states.

While most Black men said they intend to support Biden, some 30% of them in the poll said they were either definitely or probably going to vote for the former Republican president. There isn’t comparable WSJ swing-state polling from 2020, but Trump received votes from 12% of Black men nationwide that year, as recorded by AP VoteCast, a large poll of the electorate.

In the WSJ poll, 11% of Black women said they were either definitely or probably going to vote for Trump. In 2020, the AP poll found, 6% of Black women nationwide backed Trump.

 Whoa, dawg - Katie bar the door.

If waffling black voters keep seeing viral scenes like the one in the heart of black Atlanta Wednesday and realize there are like-minded others out there who are unafraid to stand up and vote for the Republican?

During a recent segment on “Saturday Night Live,” Michael Che joked President Joe Biden, like the Baltimore bridge that collapsed, “is no longer connecting with black communities.” But for the Biden campaign, it’s not funny. In fact, the president’s low approval ratings and apparent inability to inspire enthusiasm among black voters could mean a repeat of 2016 for Democrats, if the enthusiasm gap is wide enough to outweigh Democrats’ ballot trafficking operations.

This could be pretty dang epic.

But man, oh, man - is it ever going to be dirty when Dems start fighting back.

Independent Voters: Not the Brightest Crayons in the Box

BY CHRISTOPHER SKEET | PJ MEDIA

Those sweet summer children we call "independent" voters are slower than molasses in January. There, I said it. I apologize for the petty insult, but I don't know how to make it sound any nicer. After the popular votes of five of the last six presidential elections, what other conclusion are we to reasonably derive?

Leftists are not stupid. Leftists are intolerant, fanatical, violent, fascistic, and single-minded in purpose. But they are not stupid. They control the media, the schools, Big Tech, much of corporate America, the IRS, the DOJ, the FBI, the Pentagon, an increasing number of religious organizations, and almost every lever of representative and bureaucratic government, not to mention our physical streets, whenever they want, with zero consequence. Whatever that is, it isn't stupidity.

Stupidity is maintaining the farce that choosing between democratic republicanism and mob tyranny is a difficult choice for rational citizens. With both parties now on polar opposite sides of the spectrum, the idea that there exists any legitimacy in carefully weighing which side to vote for no longer holds merit. 

Back in the heyday of the Republican Revolution and Clinton triangulation, one could at least feign with sincerity that there was a not insignificant amount of overlap between the two parties' agendas. Bill Clinton pretended to oppose illegal immigration and to keep abortion "safe, legal, and rare." Even during the Bush years, Democrats had the sense to mouth platitudes about "supporting the troops" and about how "dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

The final break came with Obama, when he steered his party sharply left and they never looked back. Since then, the Democrats have moved so far to the left, with no signs of slowing, that the gulf that separates us has reached the point of irreconcilability. They are enabled in this pursuit by the "independent" vote, and this will continue until "independents" show some actual independence by voting for someone other than Democrats for the first time in their lives. More on that later.

There is a petty allure, rooted in virtue-signaling conceit, in trumpeting one's "independence" in politics. "Independent" voters fancy themselves the true harbingers of logical calculation and cool objectivity, able to see through the dogmatic passions of either party. They wear the undecided-until-the-last-minute mask as if they actually spent the days and hours up to the election carefully balancing each candidate and each issue against the complex, nuanced, intertwining realities of life, and that such considerations could never be fathomed by all those brutes who vote party line.

But the "independent" claim doesn't hold merit. Most "independents" are low-information leftists. Polling over the last two decades illustrates that "independents" are responsible for pushing not only presidential candidates over the finish line but also candidates in midterm elections. And yet, polling also indicates that "independents" are the least informed voters. 

Furthermore, polling finds that majorities of these "independents" skew leftward on issues of border control, taxes, race relations, drug legalization, and the economy. So the conundrum in which we find ourselves is that each election, we waste millions chasing the breeze of the fabled swing vote, which is, regrettably, the least engaged, the least informed, and which leans reliably leftward.

So calling yourself an "independent" doesn't elicit the street cred it once did. With the parties so diametrically opposed, and ferociously so, on almost every single issue, the "independent" mantle is now indicative not of courage but of cowardice, not of deliberation but of vapidity, not of intellect but of ignorance.

Let's run through the past few elections.

If you voted for Obama because you agreed that Americans should be forced to purchase insurance against their will, that government agencies should be weaponized against the citizenry, and that the United States is irredeemably racist, then you're not an "independent." You're a leftist. But if you voted for Obama because you wanted to be able to say you're hip and edgy and voted for the first black president, you're also not an "independent." You're a shallow narcissist.

If you voted for Hillary because you thought that doubling down on the Obama agenda was just the medicine America needed and that her coronation would irreversibly cement this agenda, then you're not an "independent." You're a leftist. But if you voted for Hillary because you wanted to make some juvenile Swiftie statement about Grrrl Power, you're also not an "independent." You're a shallow narcissist. 

If you voted for Biden because you knew he'd be a willing sock puppet for his radical handlers, so long as they kept massaging his ego with whispers of how smart he is, how underestimated he is, and how he can eat his steamed carrots all by himself like a big boy, then you're not an "independent." You're a leftist. But if you voted for Lunch Bucket Joe because you actually bought into his coal-miner-from-Scranton schtick and you thought he'd bring civility and bipartisanship back to the White House, you're also not an "independent." You're just straight-up gullible.

And if you're a single-issue voter and you vote Democrat solely to protect abortion, fine. We can thank you for the tanking economy, bail-free criminality, the destruction of women's sports, Chinese/Russian/Iranian aggression, the crackdown on due process, the laughingstock of our public education, the resurgence of antisemitism and Islamic supremacy, and the millions of illegal invaders currently overrunning our cities. Hope it was worth it to ensure that partial-birth abortion remains taxpayer-funded and available to undocumented teens without parental notification in Nebraska. 

So how are "independent" voters made to see reason? Our middle/upper-class suburbanite "independents" maintain their faux independence by turning a blind eye to the policies they support. They are not directly affected by the factory closures, the armies of illegals, the FBI raids on peaceful pro-lifers, or by some baker getting sued out of business by LGBTQ cancelers. But maybe they'll raise an eyebrow once their leafy streets are overrun by the beneficiaries of their vote. 

The well-devised practice of busing illegals to blue cities should be expanded to include blue suburbs. Criminals released on no-bail laws should likewise be released into these neighborhoods. Anybody looking to join a police force should do so only in reliably red areas. Republican district attorneys should prioritize prosecutions in red districts. Businesses should continue relocating to red areas.

Our suburban "independent" voters need their votes to follow them. Once they see their streets being overrun, their stores looted and burned, their schools turned into refugee camps, and their property taxes paying for it all, maybe they'll take a good, hard look in the mirror, admit they were wrong, and change their vote.

For at least one or two elections, anyway.

Want to Guess What the Media Missed Regarding This Officer-Involved Shooting in Chicago?

By Matt Vespa | Townhall.com

AP Photo/Matt Rourke

The dishonesty from the media continues to sink to absurd levels. On March 21, Dexter Reed was shot and killed by Chicago police after he fired on officers. It’s all on video. Reed fired first, which led to police returning fire. One officer was shot and injured by Reed. The media either obsesses about the 96 fired shots or buries the crucial detail that Reed fired first. The incident was a routine traffic stop, where Reed was pulled over for reportedly not wearing a seatbelt. Credit to NBC 5 Chicago, who had an accurate headline for this story: “Police fire nearly 100 shots in 41 seconds after man shot officer during traffic stop.” 

As the group stopped Reed, multiple officers surrounded his vehicle and, according to several bodycam videos, asked him to roll his windows down repeatedly. Officers then shouted at Reed not to roll the windows up and to unlock his doors. 

As they shout, Reed can be heard saying "OK, I'm trying to," with officers continuing to pull on the door handle and shouting for him to unlock the doors, some backing away and raising their firearms. 

In the videos, gunfire is heard as officers then take cover and several gunshots are fired in a matter of seconds. One officer falls away from the scene, with video showing blood dripping from his arm. 

"When Mr. Reed did not comply with these commands, officers pointed their firearms at Mr. Reed and ultimately there was an exchange of gunfire which left Mr. Reed dead and an officer shot in the forearm," COPA said in a release. 

According to COPA, the "review of video footage and initial reports appears to confirm that Mr. Reed fired first, striking the officer and four officers returned fire." 

Yet, what we’ve got from a host of people, some of whom are the usual suspects in ginning up false narratives, is that the police murdered Mr. Reed. Some have wondered whether the media is trying to create another George Floyd situation for this election season. The evidence is clear: Reed shot first and paid for it. The officer who was shot is expected to make a full recovery.  

I don’t want to hear about what a great kid he was—Reed was a wannabe cop killer, and now he’s six feet under where he belongs.

11 ways Biden and his handlers are hell-bent on destroying America

By Victor Davis Hanson | Fox News

Former President Barack Obama and President Joe Biden

Why are those controlling President Biden using him to advance so much of a destructive agenda that it will likely end America as we know it?

If someone wished to destroy America, could he do anything more catastrophic than what we currently see and hear each day?

What would an existential enemy do that we have not already done to ourselves? 

Here are 11 now familiar steps to civilizational destruction:

1. Wipe out a 2,000-mile border. 

Allow 10 million foreign nationals to enter unlawfully. Have no audit of any; nullify all federal immigration laws. Let in toxic drugs that kill 100,000 Americans a year. Give free support to those millions who broke the law. Smear any objectors as racists and xenophobes.

2. Run up $35 trillion in national debt. 

Keep adding $1 trillion to it each 100 days. Defame anyone wishing to cut wild spending as cruel and inhumane.

3. Appease or subsidize enemies like Iran and China. 

Demonize allies like Israel. Allow terrorists to attack Americans without adequate response. See Islam as either similar or superior to Christianity. Make amends to leftist governments for supposedly past toxic American international behavior. Follow the lead of international agencies like the U.N., ICC and WHO to atone for past American neocolonial and imperialist behavior. Recede to second-tier international status, befitting American decline.

4. In a multiracial democracy, redefine identity only as one’s tribal affiliation. 

Ensure each identity group rivals the other for victimhood and the state spoils it confers. Reboot all political issues by race and sex oppressors and oppressed. Destroy all meritocratic standards of admission, retention, promotion and commendation.

5. Recalibrate violent crime as understandable, cry-of-the-heart expressions of social justice. 

Ensure no bail and same-day release for arrested, repeat violent felons. Empathize with the violent killer and rapist; ignore their victims, especially if they are slain police officers.

6. Emasculate the military by using non-meritocratic standards of race, gender, and sexual orientation to determine promotion and commendation.

Deliberately impugn as racists and insurrectionists the largest demographic in the military who in recent wars died at twice their numbers in the population — so that they leave or never join the military. Encourage retired high officers to slander their commander-in-chief. Cut the defense budget. Stop producing sufficient weapons, but leave billions of dollars’ worth of arms to terrorists.

7. Reinvent the justice system to indict, bankrupt, convict, jail and eliminate political opponents. 

Use ballot removal, impeachment, civil suits, and state and federal indictments rather than elections to defeat an opponent. Mob the homes of non-compliant Supreme Court justices, and attack them personally by name.

Alito, Jr., Elena Kagan and Brett M. Kavanaugh pose in the Justices Conference Room of the Supreme Court on Sept. 30, 2022. (Collection of the Supreme Court of the United States via Getty Images)

8. Encourage the fusion of the bureaucratic state with the electronic media to form a powerful force for political audit, surveillance, censorship and coercion. 

Marry the FBI to Silicon Valley and hire its contractors to warp the news and hound supposed enemies of the people.

9. Make war on affordable gasoline and natural gas. 

Substitute inefficient, unreliable and expensive wind and solar power, even as energy prices nearly bankrupt the middle class.

10. Marry late, but preferably not at all. 

Consider males toxic, especially boys. Have no children, or as few as possible. Otherwise, assure children they are entitled, and must be sheltered.  Raise them to have grievances against past generations and current norms.

Victor Davis Hanson

11. Turn world-class universities into indoctrination centers. 

Suspend the Bill of Rights on campuses. Train youth to graduate despising their own culture and civilization. Recruit foreign students from hostile nations to subsidize campus commissar bloat. Replace the curriculum with therapeutic propaganda. Ban the SAT/ACT and do not evaluate comparative high school GPAs. Ensure merit does not select the student body. Charge tuition higher than the rate of inflation. Bill the government when students default on their loans.

Why could those controlling the president be doing all of the above? 

1. They are delusional and think their socialist and globalist agendas are working and will save us.

2. They are raging nihilists who do not like the U.S. and deliberately want it destroyed as a service to the world. A ruined U.S. is preferable to a strong America.

3. They are Jacobin revolutionaries who are intentionally erasing the old United States as a prerequisite for creating an entirely new America that will arise from the ashes with no trace or even memory of its past.

4. They have no agenda. They are aimless fools and utter incompetents. These bunglers just wing it day-to-day, in response to what their radical media, academic and political masters dictate is necessary for them to retain power. They have no idea of the damage they are doing.

5. A bit of 1-3, but probably not 4.

There is cause for hope among this nihilist remaking of America: the people are fed up and will demand an accounting in the fall.

'Meh': Biden Met Lukewarm Reactions in Liberal College Town, and That Might Be Generous

By Matt Vespa | Townhall.com

AP Photo/Matt Kelley

Joe Biden is running into two major problems in his 2024 re-election campaign: people don’t know what he’s done because he hasn’t accomplished much, and young voters are infuriated over his position in the Israel-Hamas War. Forty percent are poorer than they were four years ago. Inflation remains inexcusably high. New employment is overwhelmingly in part-time work. We’re shipwrecked abroad, with the president thinking a floating pier in Gaza meant to deliver aid is a good idea. It’s a massive terror target, with our troops literally being sitting ducks. 

Biden lacks the political acumen and charisma that were some of the hallmark characteristics of his former boss, Barack Obama. Love him or hate him, people got excited about the first-term U.S. Senator from Illinois. We’re lucky we have term limits because Obama built a political coalition that was damn near unbeatable. College towns flocked to see Obama. With Biden, his presence is met with ‘meh’ feelings, groans, or outright anger due to the Gaza War. He doesn’t have it—he never did. It’s why his past two presidential efforts were disasters. These cities and towns used to be shoo-in territory for Democrats. They can no longer expect that this year (via NYT): 

If you want to be the president, you should probably win Wisconsin. 

And if you are a Democrat, there is a proven way to do that: Run up the numbers in Dane County, the fast-growing and deeply progressive swath of the state that contains Madison and the behemoth public university that carries the state’s name. 

President Biden’s trip on Monday to a technical college in Madison, where he announced a new plan to help pay off student loans, seemed to be part of an effort to build excitement around his re-election bid in a college town that has been a bright spot for Democrats, one seen as crucial to his victory in the state in 2020 and vital to his chances in November. 

“My district,” said State Senator Kelda Roys, a Democrat who represents much of Madison, “could potentially decide the fate of the free world.” 

But this year, amid signs of an enthusiasm gap among young voters and widespread anger on college campuses over the administration’s handling of Israel’s war in Gaza, college towns are emerging as a more complex battleground for Democrats. 

[…] 

Last week, when Wisconsin voters went to the polls in snow and rain for the now-very-much-effectively-over presidential primaries, nearly 50,000 people cast “uninstructed” votes on the Democratic side — meaning 8.3 percent of the state’s Democratic primary voters seemingly decided to use their ballots to protest the Biden administration’s support for Israel’s war in Gaza. 

That wasn’t enough to net the “uninstructed” voters any delegates to this summer’s Democratic National Convention, as “uncommitted” voters did in Michigan, where the protest movement was born. 

But it was enough to send a signal about voters’ discontent with Biden — particularly in a state that he won by just 20,682 votes in 2020. 

[…] 

The student Democrats here are hugely proud of how they turned out in droves in 2020, in the midterms and last year’s state Supreme Court election, which flipped the court to liberal control. They see themselves as tipping-point voters in a tipping-point state. 

But as they packed up their blue plastic tablecloths and empty cups of iced coffee, some of the activists expressed a current of worry, too. 

[…] 

A poll conducted by Della Volpe late last year found that young voters appeared less likely to vote in 2024 than in 2020, and a Times poll conducted this year found that young voters were the age group least likely to feel hopeful or excited about the election. 

 Given Biden’s age, there’s no ‘fountain of youth’ moment ahead. If young people feel lukewarm about him, that will remain the case. They’re also more focused on the war in Gaza than student debt relief. They don’t care. Biden is scraping at the bottom of the barrel concerning legislative achievements because he has none, other than a COVID omnibus that sent inflation spiraling. Ironically, some of that money hasn’t been spent, and it could be diverted toward good infrastructure projects, like rebuilding the Francis Scott Key Bridge. However, there is no doubt that the delivery will be botched. Biden already likened himself to the families of the six workers killed in that bridge collapse because he too lost a son, Beau Biden, who the president exploits for political points in the unseemliest ways. 

The Biden administration touted the anniversary of Obamacare—why? That’s not even a Biden legislative accomplishment. it’s Obama’s. Biden said it was a “big f**king deal.” Yeah, and you, as vice president, did nothing. Your job, besides maintaining your pulse, was to shore up the more traditional wings of the Democratic Party about having a young, inexperienced black man at the top of the ticket. 

You’re trying to retread the Obama days. It won’t work. You’re trying to keep the Obama coalition together—it’s already in tatters. It’s truly Trump’s election to lose at this point, given the chaotic mess that’s been bestowed upon us by a cabinet that is grossly unqualified and incompetent. And we haven’t even delved into how illegal immigration, the loss of operational control at the southern border, and the spike in crimes from these illegal animals will impact the race. They’re all coming into deep blue havens, creating havoc, and committing the most preventable of crimes if we abide by the simple rule of deporting people who shouldn’t be here, an alien concept in today’s Democratic Party. 

When Democrats are suspect about college towns in 2024, you know they have a candidate that can’t hack it.

If Donald Trump Is So Bad, Why Do Democrats Have To Lie About Him?

By Derek Hunter | Townhall.com

AP Photo/Mike Roemer

Donald Trump is Hitler. I know it’s true because I saw it on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow said it. She wouldn’t lie, would she? Not only that, the President of the United States said it, and he wouldn’t lie, would he? Of course they would, it’s what they do. But more than the fact that they would is the fact that they have to. Democrats have soiled the sheets – taking the country from a booming economy to one where you can’t walk out of a grocery store for less than $80 is something so horrible you almost have to try to do it. You can’t run on that level of incompetence, so you have to try to convince people that the other guy is somehow worse. Since there is no unit of measure by which the economy under Donald Trump was worse than it is under Joe Biden, lying is absolutely required. 

And Democrats will lie about anything. The “very fine people” lie about Charlottesville was one of their first and, in spite of it being exposed as a complete and total load of Biden, the President repeats it every chance he gets. Maybe he’s too senile to know he’s lying, but his history of making things up suggests otherwise.

“Trump colluded with Russia” is another example. It’s weird how questioning election results is only a “crime” when a Republican does it, but pioneers in the field – Democrats dating back to 2000 – are heroes standing up for democracy. George W. Bush stole both 2000 and 2004, and he’s “not my President” is required for tenure at most universities, but questioning the legitimacy of Biden is a “threat to democracy.” The 2008 and 2012 elections were legit, but not 2016 because Russia, we’re told, spent a couple of thousand dollars on Facebook ads. In other words, the election was “stolen” for the cost of a “donation” to buy a private meeting with Hillary and Bill Clinton. 

The 2018 gubernatorial election in Georgia was stolen too, because 50,000 duplicate names and names of dead people were removed from the voter rolls, according to conspiracy theorists. The funny thing is, the Democrat lost by almost 55,000 votes, so even if she would have received every single one of those “disenfranchised voters” who didn’t exist, she still would have lost by 5,000. But we aren’t dealing with people who engage in reality, we’re dealing with Democrats.

We’re dealing with people who take a 7-second clip of Donald Trump and lie about it, saying he’s calling all illegal aliens “animals,” when the whole quote shows clearly he’s referring to the man who beat an American woman to death to the point that he disfigured her skull. Officially, Democrats have lied about what Trump has said about the murderer of Laken Riley more times than Joe Biden has correctly said her name, which isn’t hard since the only time he’s ever attempted to say her name was a rehearsed moment in the State of the Union Address when he said “Lincoln Riley” twice while literally holding up a button that read “Laken Riley: Say Her Name.” 

Joe Biden is as bad of a person as he is a father and grandfather (especially to the granddaughter they acknowledged once in a statement and immediately returned to ignore and not even counting in their number of grandchildren), with a history of lying about anything that suits his needs at any given moment

You expect that from politicians; they’re politicians, after all. But you might expect a little more from the people who insist they “speak truth to power” in the media. You’d be wrong. 

The network that won’t run a Trump victory speech or press conference because “he might lie” will not question any of Joe Biden’s lies. The participate in them. Trans Harry Potter and his third wife on Morning Joe, who collectively have less integrity than a silicone sex doll (though, ironically, more silicone), parrot anything this administration says like someone is just off camera with a gun to the head of their children. Actually, they probably care more about Biden than they do their children, why else would they humiliate themselves so often and openly? 

If you watch MSNBC you will come away dumber, which is probably why it appeals to Joe Biden. They both present themselves as though they’re Jeopardy champions when the reality is they’re third-place finisher who wins no money on Wheel of Fortune. 

But the joke is on us – they’re getting paid and Biden is President. And if they have to lie to maintain that dynamic, so be it. 

Make no mistake, however, they do have to lie to maintain it. There is no unit of measure to show the country is better off under Biden than it was under Trump. Gas prices are up, food prices are up, wars are breaking out and expanding, the border is being flooded, and so on and so on. The best Democrats can do is compare the best numbers the Biden administration can cook up to the worst numbers of the Trump presidency, and even those, that were artificially low thanks to the pandemic, barely make their case.

That leaves Democrats with straight-up lies. You’d think you wouldn’t have to lie about an opponent who is singularly horrible in every respect, but they have to, which tells you something. 

On the other hand, all Republicans have to do is remind people of their electric bill, the last time they filled their car (or that Democrats are going to force them to buy a new, very expensive electric one soon), their rent, mortgage rates, war, everything…

Democrats have to lie, it’s all they have. But “You don’t know how good you’ve got it” is one hell of a mountain to climb in an election campaign. That’s why they’re coupling it with “The other side is Hitler,” even though, in addition to their mutual affinity for hatred of Jews, Hitler and the Nazis were progressive leftists too. 

That the truth is not helpful to Democrats tells you a lot. Actually, it tells you everything you need to know, and it’s exactly why they lie all the time, about everything.
