2020 Presidential aspirant Kamala Harris wants reparations for slavery

I just knew this would happen sooner or later.

Freshman senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is a 2020 presidential aspirant who at age 31 and just fresh out of law school, “slept her way” into two lucrative state government jobs that paid her nearly half a million dollars in just 4 years. See “Confirmed: 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris slept her way into government”.

Harris is neither a “natural born” U.S. citizen (defined as both parents being U.S. citizens at the time of her birth), nor she is an African American. Her mother is a Tamil Indian, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1960 from Madras, India (Madras was renamed Chennai in 1996); her father came to the U.S. in 1961 from Jamaica, to attend graduate study in economics at the University of California, Berkeley. (Wikipedia)

But facts never seem to deter the Left.

After jumping onto the bandwagon of Demonrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economically-insane Green New Deal, Kamala Harris is determined to further destroy the U.S. economy with reparations for slavery. Never mind that, ruling out the contemporary scourge of sex trafficking and sex slaves:

  • Neither Kamala Harris, nor her parents, nor ANY black in the United States, for generations, had been a slave.
  • Nor has any white American, for generations, owned slaves.
  • Nor has any of the hundreds of millions of immigrants, legal or illegal, owned slaves.

Yesterday, Feb. 11, 2019, on 105.1 AM “Breakfast Club” radio show in New York City, Kamala Harris told host Charlamagne tha God she would support reparations for “black people”.

Here’s the transcript (beginning at the 25:20 mark of the video):

Charlamagne: “Where do you stand on some form of reparations for black people? Here you see Mayor De Blasio saying the marijuana economy could be a form of reparations. Marianne Williamson says black people should get a hundred billion in slave reparations–like, where do you stand on it?”

Harris: “Well look, I think that we have got to address that again, it’s back to the inequities. There, through–look, America has a history of 200 years of slavery. We had Jim Crow. We had legal segregation in America for a very long time. The Voting Rights Act was only strong for 50 years and then they wiped it out with this United States Supreme Court in the Shelby decision, to the point that 22 states immediately thereafter put in place laws that one court found were crafted with surgical precision to have black people not be able to vote. So we’ve got to recognize, back to that earlier point, people aren’t starting out on the same base, in terms of their ability to succeed and so we have got to recognize that and give people a lift up. And, there are a number of ways to do it. Part of my initiative again around the ‘Lift Act’ is that same point–you lifting people up who are making less than a hundred thousand dollars a year. What I want to do about rent is the same thing. What we need to do around education and understanding disparities, what we need to do around HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities). But we have a history of racism in America.”

Charlamagne: “So you are for some type of reparations?

Harris: “Yes I am, yes I am.”

The comments on the YouTube video, from blacks (the commenters’ gravatars), are fascinating. A sample:

Steven Blaq: “Black people ain’t accepting them butter biscuits without some quality chicken and a side of their choosing. You about to get Hillaried.”

662chillin: “Look at the dislikes on this video. Black #ADoS people are not falling for the okie doke like we did in 2008/2012 and finally getting on code. The days of #BenignNeglect and giving away our vote while helping these CBC members get rich with getting nothing in return are OVER”

Willie D Live: “You damn right we know you cannot be trusted. The criminal (in)justice system is deeply flawed because snakes like you uphold it. The little things you did were nothing more than bones thrown to gain brownie points. As your constituents looked the other way you locked up every brother you could find as your office simultaneously refused to investigate or indict corrupt police officers throughout California. You are a textbook status-quo politician, here to shuck and jive and do The Man’s bidding. Your record as DA in San Francisco, and as Attorney General of California was your audition for the oval office and you blew it like you blew a few other things. Wink, wink. You’re the worst kind of culture vulture because you prey on your people’s blind trust for those who look black. Your mama should be embarrassed and your daddy should’ve pulled out. No more talk!”

Lucifer Fire: “This chick is a pandering fraud. She thinks she can insult our intelligence by talking in circles without answering questions. We will no longer be fooled.”

bclaude87: “Between Kamala Harris and Cory Booker the Democratic party really thinks Black Americans are IDIOTS. We are not falling for the Barack Obama trick again. Lets hear real laws and policy that will result in Black Empowerment. I don’t want to hear People of Color, Minorities, Diversity, Poor People, or Urban. I am soooo tired of Black people fighting for EVERYONE else and we continue to be at the bottom and get shitted on. No Black AGENDA = No Black Vote. #Tangibles2020

michael armstrong: “I’m from Oakland ( the town) nobody young is voting for her.” [Note: Harris was born in Oakland, California, and worked in Oakland for 8 years as as an Alameda County deputy district attorney.]

Ta-seti Shafira: “Wish I had 2 extra hand so I can give this interview 4 thumbs down…to hell with what this broad is saying. #noblackagendanoblackvote #b1 #tangables2020

Liberty City El: “She had her Black voice on in full effect LOL! Nope not falling for it Carmella, you not getting my vote #Tangibles2020

J DS: “EVERY YEAR SAME WORDS, EVERY YEAR IT GETS WORSE FOR BLACK PEOPLE. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE”

Bro AJ: “No Native Black American Agenda, No Vote. We can do 4 more years of Trump if that’s the case.”

algrolls: “Obama tricked us but this heffa will not.”

Mr Mateo Jones: “OH MY GAWD! It’s Hillary Clinton all over again”

This comment, in particular, gives me such hope, from a black man:

SeedofAbraham01: “They will never confront her, question her, concerning her proabort stance, on the evils of abortion and its negative impact on the black community.”

Confirmed: 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris slept her way into government

Kamala Harris, 54, is a first-term U.S. senator for California.

A week ago on January 21, 2019, she officially announced her campaign to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2020 United States presidential election. In the first 24 hours, her campaign already raised $1.5 million in mostly small contributions.

Her announcement renewed questions about how Harris got her start in politics.

According to Wikipedia, in 1993, 31 years younger and fresh out of law school, Kamala Harris began “dating” California Speaker of the Assembly Willie Brown, “who introduced her to many powerful individuals in the California and Sacramento political and campaign management establishment.”

Brown later became a two-term mayor of San Francisco. In Willie Brown: A Biography, p. 404, James Richardson writes that Kamala Harris was Willie Brown’s “girl friend” although he was — and still is — married to his wife Blanche Vitero.

More than introducing her to powerful people in politics, the Washington Free Beacon points out that Brown also appointed Harris to two well-paid state commission assignments on the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the California Medical Assistance Commission. SF Weekly reported back in 2003 that the two positions earned her more than $400,000 over five years.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle last Saturday, January 26, 2019, Willie Brown admits to his adulterous affair with Kamala Harris in a casual “what’s the big deal?” demeanor. He writes:

Elephant in the room: I’ve been peppered with calls from the national media about my “relationship” with Kamala Harris, most of which I have not returned.

Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago.

Admitting that “I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco,” Brown then breezily dismisses his nepotistic patronage, saying “I have also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians.”

Are we to think that Pelosi, Newsom and Feinstein also screwed Willie Brown into politics?

Brown’s admission that he had dated an adulterous affair with and “assisted” Kamala Harris into politics may just the beginning of the airing of her dirty laundry.

According to a Crazy Days and Nights blind last June, Kamala Harris began her political career by being the mistress of the powerful and married Willie Brown — former mayor of San Francisco and speaker of the California State Assembly — who took her to swinger parties that were “glorified orgies” where she engaged in sex with “large numbers of men and women”. CDAN claims there are compromising pictures of Harris at these orgies, “which is why senior leaders from her party are quietly trying to discourage her presidential ambitions”.

Then there is the matter that Harris is not a “natural born” U.S. citizen. Nor is she an African-American.

Kamala Harris’ parents are both immigrants:

  • Her mother is a Tamil Indian, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1960 from Madras, India. (Madras was renamed Chennai in 1996.)
  • Her father came to the U.S. in 1961 from Jamaica, to attend graduate study in economics at the University of California, Berkeley. (Wikipedia)

Since Kamala was born in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964, neither of her parent would have been a U.S. citizen at the time. That makes Kamala Harris not a “natural born citizen,” according to the most scholarly interpretation of Section 1 of Article Two of the U.S. Constitution.

Of course, none of this matters because Democrats — with the complicity of Republicans — had made sure, with the constitutionally-illegitimate presidency of Barack Obama (whose Kenyan father was not a U.S. citizen at Barack’s birth or after), that the Constitution’s natural-born citizenship requirement for the presidency means nothing.

The Satanic motto “Do As Thou Will” is all that matters.

Another 2020 contender: Bill de Blasio says “There’s plenty of money in NYC, it’s just in the wrong hands”

The mantra of every elite socialist and ill-informed, government-educated proggie.

From NY Post: Burnishing his progressive credentials, Mayor Bill de Blasio portrayed himself as a protector of the working class on Thursday — while proposing a redistribution of wealth — in his sixth State of the City address.

“Brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world. There’s plenty of money in this city. It’s just in the wrong hands,” said de Blasio, who owns two homes and collects $258,750 a year as mayor.

“You haven’t been paid what you deserve for all the hard work. You haven’t been given the time you deserve. You’re not living the life you deserve. And here is the cold, hard truth: It’s no accident. It’s an agenda,” he continued, blaming Republican presidential administrations from Reagan to Trump.

The mayor proposed initiatives to level the playing field between the haves and have-nots — such as seizing buildings from bad landlords, expanding the Department of Consumer Affairs to include “worker protection” and offering medical care to 300,000 illegal aliens.

But critics pointed out the mayor’s corporate handouts.

“I thought there was something a little contradictory when he talks about having a city with a whole lot of money where workers don’t get their fair share and how we’re going to start to be more fair and more equitable,” Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. said.

“The irony there is that you’re giving $3 billion away to Amazon [in city and state subsidies],” Diaz continued, adding that he supports the online retail giant’s plans to build a headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, but not the financial incentives offered to it.

Hizzoner also promised to confiscate land from scofflaw landlords and turn the seized properties over to nonprofits under a newly created Mayor’s Office to Protect Tenants.

“When the city’s worst landlords cheat their tenants, we will take their buildings away from them,” he said in the 67-minute speech at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space on the Upper West Side.

“If fines and penalties don’t cut it, we will seize buildings and put them into the hands of a nonprofit that will treat tenants with the respect they deserve.”

The details were not announced, but the plan is modeled on the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s Third Party Transfer program, which forecloses on properties that have fallen into serious disrepair or are behind on taxes.

It was one of many mayoral ideas that recycled existing programs or proposals de Blasio couldn’t push through during his first five years at City Hall.

The Department of Consumer Affairs will be renamed the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection to help freelancers and contract workers get paid quicker while enforcing paid-sick-leave laws and worker vacation requirements. Such activities already largely fall under its purview.

He also re-upped a 2016 proposal to create a public retirement system for the 2 million New Yorkers who do not have employer-sponsored savings programs. The plan stalled three years ago due to federal rule changes, but the city is taking another stab at it now that Oregon got one up and running and Seattle is moving in that direction, city officials said.

The city’s version would require employers to either offer retirement to all employees or auto-enroll them in a city-run retirement system.

De Blasio also pledged to expand pre-K for 3-year-olds to 20,000 by 2019 instead of 19,000 by 2021, while also extending a program that gives free vision checks and glasses to 5- and 6-year-old schoolchildren.

The city expects about 33,000 kids to get the glasses, supplied free by the eyeglass-making company Warby Parker.
The mayor, whose own eye has shifted outside New York as he seeks to raise his national profile, plugged his previously announced plan to expand the city’s MetroPlus public health care system as proof that New York is a progressive bastion battling a regressive national current.

“This country has spent decades taking from working people and giving to the 1 percent. This city has spent the last five years doing it the other way around,” he said.

He also took shots at Albany over the state of the city’s subways, although his gripes may have fallen on dead ears.
“I am not listening to it right now,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo told WNYC on Thursday. “I’m in Albany.”

Big heap no surprise: Elizabeth Warren plans to run for president in 2020

Her odds of winning: 1/1024.

From NY Post: Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday announced her intention to run for president in 2020 as a champion of middle-class Americans and a foe of big banks and Wall Street fat cats.

Warren, who said she was creating an exploratory committee that will allow her to raise funds and hire staffers, will be among a crowded field of Democrats taking a shot at the White House.

“America’s middle class is under attack,” Warren said in a four-minute, 30-second video posted to YouTube. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.”

In the video, the 69-year-old former law professor lays out her vision of the future, while setting herself up as a foil to President Trump and members of his administration.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster,” she says. “What I’ve found is terrifying. These aren’t cracks that families are falling into, they’re traps.”

The Republican National Committee dismissed Warren’s candidacy, saying her “out of touch” agenda poses no threat to Trump. “With her lack of support from voters – including in her home state – on top of her phony claim to minority status, now that she is formally running Americans will see her for what she is: another extreme far-left obstructionist and a total fraud,” Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

The president, who has announced that he will seek re-election in 2020, has trashed Warren in the past for her claims that she is partly Native American, referring to her as “Pocahontas.”

Warren in October released DNA testing results that showed there was “strong evidence” that she has Native American blood. The release was intended to quell questions about her heritage but prompted criticism from Native American leaders and left some supported puzzled why she would rekindle the controversy.

A number of Democrats are expected to announce presidential campaigns in the next few months, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost a Senate bid in November to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, are also weighing getting in the race.

Crazy train is getting an early start: Demorats to hold at least a dozen presidential primary debates, starting next June

DNC Chair Tom Perez leading with values…

I can sum up what to expect in these primary debates: Orange Man Bad, immigrant values, no border wall, Orange Man Bad, raise taxes on the rich, climate change, Orange Man Bad, female reproductive rights, Orange Man Bad…you get the idea.

From NY Post: The Democratic National Committee — which was accused of rigging the 2016 primary election for establishment favorite Hillary Clinton — announced Thursday that it will host a dozen primary debates that could be open to as many as 20 candidates to start.

To accommodate what is expected to be a large field of White House wannabes, DNC chair Tom Perez said the party’s first two debates in June and July could be held on multiple nights to accommodate all the candidates. The lineup each night would be determined at random.

“To win back the presidency in 2020, Democrats must lead with our values. That began with the historic reforms to expand and increase trust in our party, and will continue by conducting party business fairly, transparently, and inclusively throughout the 2020 primary process,” Perez said.

Perez said his goal is to give “the grass-roots a bigger voice than ever before” and to allow candidates to reach as many potential voters as possible.

“That is how we will put our nominee in the strongest position possible to defeat Donald Trump, and how we will help elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” he said.

Of the 12 debates, six will be held in 2019 and six in 2020. The showdowns in 2020 will be held in early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.

While vowing to be inclusive, the DNC acknowledged judgments will have to be made on the viability of the candidates.

“Candidates will qualify for the first two debates by meeting criteria that include both polling and other objectives that reflect a candidate’s support, such as grassroots fundraising,” the DNC said in outlining its plan. The precise criteria for the first two debates will be announced next month.

Supporters of Bernie Sanders charged the DNC went out of its way to help Clinton, his primary rival in 2016, by scheduling debates at times that were favorable to her. There were also accusations that Clinton got some questions in advance.

Cory Booker signaling a presidential 2020 run with visit to New Hampshire?

Go for it, Spartacus. You ain’t got a chance…

From NY Post: Cory Booker is returning to the first-in-the-nation primary state for a trip that could turn out to be a tuneup for the New Jersey senator’s potential Democratic presidential campaign.

Booker’s been invited by the New Hampshire Democratic Party to headline their post-midterm election “Victory Celebration” Saturday in Manchester. He’ll also be the main attraction at house parties in Concord, Nashua, and Keene.

Booker’s said repeatedly in recent weeks that he’ll take the holiday season to assess whether he launches a White House campaign.

The visit is Booker’s second to New Hampshire in two months. He campaigned with now-Congressman-elect Chris Pappas and gubernatorial nominee Molly Kelly at a rally at the University of New Hampshire, and with Congresswoman Annie Kuster at Dartmouth College in late October, shortly before the midterm elections.

Remember his “Spartacus” moment? From Fox News:

“Booker, as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was one of the leaders in the push against the confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh — and raised eyebrows by, in one particular flourish, comparing himself to Thracian gladiator Spartacus.

The Associated Press reported that Booker has been particularly aggressive in his push for a 2020 bid and has been courting activists and prospective staff. Booker told PIX11 that he will take time over the holidays to “sit back and meet with family, friends and advisors and decide whether to run for re-election which has been my sole focus or now begin to think about running for president.”

“This holiday season will be a great time for me to sit down … bring together folks and make a decision,” Booker said. “Not about what’s best for me but really with what I believe in my heart is best for the country demorat agenda.”

Delusional: Jesse Venture says “Trump will not have a chance” if I run for president

Jesse Ventura: A legend in his own mind/Instagram photo

This douche bag won’t get many votes from the military and patriotic citizens.

From Fox News: Jesse Ventura is considering running against President Donald Trump in 2020 — and the former pro wrestler is confident he can deliver a DDT to DJT in the election.

“I haven’t made a decision yet because it’s a long time off, but if I do do it, rest assured … If I do do it, Trump will not have a chance,” Ventura, 67, told TMZ on Tuesday. “Because for one, Trump knows wrestling — he’s participated in two WrestleManias. He knows he can never out-talk a wrestler, and I am the greatest talker wrestling’s ever had. So if I go for it, he’s history and he knows it.”

As for the former Minnesota governor’s platform, “The Body” says, “I’m big into cannabis legalization, I’m also into alternative energy, big. We gotta get away from fossil fuels, we gotta go to the sun [for energy]. It’s time. The Greens have shown some interest.”

Ventura is also pondering a return to the ring for WrestleMania, which is returning to Minneapolis for 2019.

Flaunting his six-pack, the former WWE star boasted, “I’m 220 pounds, I’m in fighting shape.”

This is how much money it takes to be better off than half of world population

In a bill-signing event in New York last August 15, New York’s Demonrat governor Andrew Cuomo, a rumored 2020 presidential candidate, said: “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”

Some millennials agree.

On this Thanksgiving Day, let’s look at how Americans compare with the rest of the world in wealth.

If you have just $4,210 to your name, you’re better off than half of people around the globe. The total world population in 2018 is 7.7 billion. That means if you have $4,210, you have more money than 3.85 billion people.

Kathleen Elkins reports for CNBC, Nov. 19, 2018, that according to the 2018 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse Research Institute:

  • A net worth of $4,210 makes you richer than 50% of the people in the world.
  • A net worth of $93,170 puts you in the top 10%, richer than 90% of people.
  • A net worth of $871,320 puts you in the global top 1%, richer than 99% of the 7.7 billion in the world.

As the Global Wealth report puts it:

While the bottom half of adults collectively owns less than 1 percent of total wealth, the richest decile (top 10 percent of adults) owns 85 percent of global wealth, and the top percentile alone accounts for almost half of all household wealth (47 percent).

The report defines net worth or “wealth,” as “the value of financial assets plus real assets (principally housing) owned by households, minus their debts.”

The United States continues to lead the world in wealth:

(1) The average wealth per adult over a lifetime in the U.S. is $403,974, while the median wealth per adult is $61,667, significantly more than the net worth required to be among the global 50%.

(2) The U.S. has the most members of the world’s top 1%.

(3) The U.S. has 41% of the world’s millionaires and four times the number of individuals with more than $50 million, than the next country, China.

But Andrew Cuomo, who has a net worth of $5 million, tells you not only is America not great, America has never been great.

Did you know that research consistently found that gratitude — being thankful for what we have — is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness? Conversely, ingratitude is a sure way to be bitter and miserable. (See Harvard Health)

“Liberal firebrand” Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2020?

Hillary can barely make it down/up a flight of stairs. How is she going to make it to Wisconsin in 2020?

According to a post from Twitchy:

“Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994.”

Go for it. Can’t wait to see her debate President Trump!

Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign already has $106M and an army of grassroots volunteers

Two days before his inauguration, during an interview with the Washington “fake news” Post on Jan. 18, 2017, Donald John Trump already had the slogan for his re-election campaign in 2020. He asked the Post, “Are you ready?,” then announced his 2020 campaign slogan:

“Keep America Great!”

Trump called his lawyer into his office to trademark the slogan, more than three years before he is up for re-election, so confident is he that America would be great by the time the slogan is deployed.

What we didn’t know was that President Trump began raising money for his reelection campaign shortly after winning the 2016 election, and he already has amassed $106 million in his 2020 campaign war chest!

Michele Y. H. Lee reports for the Washington Post (via Chicago Tribune) that on Monday, Oct. 15, President Trump disclosed that his campaign and affiliated committees have raised at least $106 million – an enormous sum that exceeds what any of his predecessors amassed so early in their presidencies. Together with the RNC, Trump’s campaign committee and joint fundraising committees have raised more than $337 million, and stockpiled at least $88 million of it in cash.

Lee dolefully points out that this means Trump has a $100 million “head start” over Democrats “as Democrats’ hopes for the presidency are just coming into focus” because “the Trump machine has been churning for nearly two years – unheard of before this president, as his predecessors typically waited until after midterm elections to focus on their reelection campaigns.”

In addition to Trump getting a “head start” over the Demonrats, his 2020 reelection campaign is also significant because of his appeal to different parts of the GOP base:

(1) Small donors, The Deplorables, who donate $200 or less, account for 40% to more than half of the money raised in Republican Party fundraising bearing Trump’s name and likeness. The Deplorables are also buying Make America Great Again gear and responding to Facebook ads.

(2) Trump is equally successful with wealthy donors who support conservative causes:

  • At least six political action committees have spent more than $9 million to promote Trump’s 2020 run, while spending only about $1.2 million supporting GOP House and Senate candidates, according to a McClatchy News analysis.
  • Joel Benenson, a campaign strategist for Barack Obama, admitted that wealthy conservative donors are better organized and act more strategically than any Democrat outfits that raise money from big donors: “Focusing on just what the RNC and just Donald Trump [have] raised masks what I think another advantage that Republicans have … the billionaire network on the Republican side, which I think often seems like they deploy and develop in more coordinated ways. There’s a way to get more strategic on that front [for Democrats], and I think we’re playing a bit of catch-up there.”

(3) More than mobilizing small donors, the Trump 2020 reelection campaign is getting organized at the grass roots level — something that the Republican Party inexplicably and unconscionably had overlooked in the past:

  • The Republican National Committee (RNC) is gathering into its voter database the tens of thousands of Deplorables who are turning up at Trump rallies across the country, connecting with 1 million voters per day and forging an army of volunteers. The test run of this new GOP machine is the November midterm election.
  • Since 2012, the RNC had spent nearly $250 million to improve the party’s data and digital operations. The RNC’s data program flags prospective volunteers when they express interest in the party for the first time – such as making a donation or signing a petition online – and when they register to attend their first Trump rally.
  • An example is Hope Eck, 49, a registered nurse in Indiana and an independent who supported Clinton in 2008 and voted for Trump in 2016. Eck attended her first Trump rally in May in Elkhart, Indiana. When Trump implored the crowd to help elect Republican Mike Braun to the Senate, in one of the most competitive contests this fall, “I definitely felt a tug at my heart to get involved,” Eck said. So at the rally, she signed up to volunteer. Within a week, a Republican Party official called her. Soon after, Eck was knocking on doors to educate voters about Braun. She now canvasses voters in person and by phone every day, often on her own.
  • Another example is Linda Olson, 66, a retired legal secretary who lives in Great Falls, Montana, attended a Trump rally for the first time in July after waiting 5½ hours in line. Olson voted for Trump in 2016, but it wasn’t until she saw him in person at the rally that she was moved to volunteer for the party, urging voters to support Republicans in House and Senate races. Olson said she plans to continue volunteering to help Trump get reelected in 2020: “Anything he needs us to do – for the president – we’ll be doing.”
  • The RNC now has 540 national staff members across 28 states, with more than 22,000 “top tier” trained activists. In comparison, 5,000 such volunteers were trained for the 2016 campaign.

A massive, overflow Trump rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, October 10, 2018:

GOP strategist Scott Jennings, who advised Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, said: “If the Trump campaign and RNC keep doing what they’re doing, they’re going to amass a huge fundraising and grassroots network. By the time the conventions come around, they’re going to be rolling down the campaign trail with a well-oiled, fully-weaponized battle station.”

Even Demonrat strategist Paul Begala acknowledged that “It is really impressive, the money and the operation that the Trump folks are putting together.” As soon as the midterm election is over, Democrats “had better get about the business of re-arming for the next battle.”

The Democratic National Committee (DNC), struggling to rebuild after 2016, effectively has no cash on hand and remains in debt. DNC officials said they are cognizant of the gap they need to close for 2020 and are investing in state parties and cybersecurity so that the eventual nominee will inherit a strong party – something they acknowledge that Hillary Clinton did not have in 2016. Guy Cecil, chairman of Priorities USA, the main Demonrat super PAC, said: “There’s no question that the DNC found itself in a deeper hole than they thought when the 2018 cycle started, and they have significant more work to do to get resources and to build infrastructure, so that when we have a nominee, we’re prepared to fight.”

The 2020 race is expected to begin almost immediately after the midterm election. Fauxcahontas Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA), rumored “gay” Sen. Cory Booker (NJ), and Obama’s VP pedophile Joe Biden are among the high-profile Democrats who have recently raised millions of dollars and traveled around the country to support midterm candidates – moves typically considered signs of presidential aspirations.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney who represents Stormy Daniels and Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s false accuser (and perjurer) Julie Swetnick, said he would run for the presidency in 2020 only against Trump or Pence.

Bring it on, punks!
