    Trump 2020

    Poll numbers of Trump rising, libs getting worried, now Trump announced campaign!

    Donald Trump has confirmed he's running for re-election in 2020 and this is why he'll probably win

    http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/...-a8231546.html
    4 more years coming right up, libs!
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    John Nolte explains why this was a politically brilliant maneuver:

    Source: Trump’s Super-Early 2020 Announcement Kills Another Dumb Norm — It’s Also Smart

    To begin with, Trump can start raising money immediately and openly, instead of through some dumb exploratory committee, and he will need it. Trump will not only be fighting feverish Democrats and their stable of plutocrat billionaires, but untold billions of corporate dollars spent to destroy him by a mainstream media still smarting over the humiliation of 2016, and eager for payback.

    Moreover, by removing the conceit of not campaigning for president, Trump does not have to stand around and take it as his opponents come after him (not that he would, anyway). For example, there is no question that even after the Evan McMuffin debacle, the sell-out crybabies in the increasingly left-wing NeverTrump will attempt to run another spoiler. Trump now has free reign to suck up all that money and to define these pathetic chumps, to get in their head, before they even step in the batter’s box.

    He will also have free reign to go after the growing pile of Democrats who will seek to unseat him. Whether it is McAuliffe, Kamala Harris, Pocahontas, or whomever, Trump can work his genius in locating and mercilessly poking at their weak spot, i.e., “Low Energy Jeb,” “Crooked Hillary,” “Little Marco.”

    [...]

    Finally, there is Trump’s primary opposition — the corrupt mainstream media. Trump’s early announcement accomplishes one small thing and one Big Thing. The small thing is killing off all the fake news the media intended to publish (using phony sources) about Trump not running for re-election. This is an end-run around the media’s intent to make him look weak, indecisive, and beleaguered with lies.

    The Big Thing is burning out the media. Trump’s seemingly inexhaustible energy and relish for a fight is one of his most potent political weapons. By announcing his intent to run for a second term, the media are automatically put on the defensive. But they are also facing three more years of lost weekends and holidays, bitter battles, and the endless fatigue and burn-out that comes with it.

    When the media are tired, they become nasty and desperate, they reveal their biases and insufferable elitism, they flail with fake news. All of this serves to hasten a credibility death spiral that has already tanked the media’s approval ratings into the low twenties.

    Trump’s smartest move in 2016 was to define his opponents in the media as the left-wing liars they truly are. By running his permanent 2020 campaign openly, he keeps them guessing, running, chasing, worrying, stressing — and he keeps his boot squarely on their squirming pencil necks.

    If these are the sort of opinion pieces you read daily and get your news from, no wonder you’re such an unpleasant person to converse with.

    Anyway, I’m sort of pleased to hear he’s running again- roll on 2020.

    Have you noticed how marginalized Schumer and Pelosi have become with Trump having these sit-down listening sessions?

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    No, I've always been blunt. My best friend once described my discourse style as "You say no more than what needs to be said."

    I think you have managed to do far more than that

    You only think that, because every time my comments are directed at you, your ignorance is exposed for all to see.

    1) I have not said there is no God. 2) Your post does not give us any reason to believe there is. It is more than a little naive that you can avoid discussion by calling those who disagree for fools.

  12. Amen Tassman amen'd this post.
