What President Trump DIDN’T Say. For the benefit of @marcorubio,the media & Mike Pence

First, listen to someone who gets it.

I’ve done several blog entries showing that the Demorats told us what they were going to do to ‘win’ the election for Joe Biden-in some states they broke election laws, in others they just changed the laws in ways that violated the Constitution. It’s well known. The media never reports it. Our Republican lawmakers never point it out.

Props to Matt Gaetz for this revelation on what actually took place with Mike Pence.

Those that attended or watched the Jan 6 :Trump rally on social media clearly heard Trump say he hoped Pence would “do the right thing.” He never once mentioned that the VP should or could overturn the election. The media is lying and people like Sen Rubio are playing right into it.

All Pres Trump did was question the election and ask for Pence to do what he was legitimately permitted to do. Nothing more. We all questioned the legitimacy of the election. We witnessed a lot of things that happened on election day we had never seen before. We knew the Democrats were corrupt and desperate enough to do whatever it took to get Biden elected and Trump out of office. We knew nothing was beneath them and they always proved us right.

Did i expect Pence to overturn the election on Jan 6? I’m not that stupid. The Trump supporters are not that stupid. Pres Trump is not that stupid. Did we hope that Pence would use his legitimate authority to delay certification until concerns were addressed in various states ? YES. A delay is not overturning an election. There was a delay when the Bush-Gore election went to the Supreme Court. For that matter there was a delay in the election results of Nov 3, 2020 . So what the Dems are saying is that it was ok to delay calling the election on election day but not ok to delay certification, Seriously?

Right there is why Republicans get the shaft. First you play into the media’s hands by accepting THEIR narrative then responding to it; rather than correcting their narrative. Did you notice how the Arizona candidate Kari Lake handled the ABC reporter? Republicans would do well to learn a thing or 2 from her. Lake was not about to let that reporter steam roll her. She responded by stopping the narrative she knew was coming and turned it around to make HER points. That’s exactly how you do it; NOT play into their hands.

I could tell you why Pence should have delayed certifying the electors but i didn’t intend to make that point here. The point i AM trying to make is this narrative that Trump wanted Pence to actually overturn the election needs to stop. It reminds me of the media narrative that Trump praised the Neo Nazi’s in  Charlottesville when he did no such thing. They never gave up on that one.

They were good at pulling this crap on Trump and you Republicans never stood up to them the way you should have.

Sometimes We Have to Learn the Hard Way (those are the lessons you never forget)

If* Trump goes back to the White House in 2024 he’s going back with some lessons learned. Lessons we learned too. We always wanted to believe the best about people but the best may not always be true. Here are the truths that were exposed.

Most of the people in DC are part of the swamp. You have to watch your back.  It’s obvious by now who isn’t part of the swamp. People like Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Green. If the establishment considers them radical then you can be sure they are the good guys. They need our support.  They’re few and far between. Fortunately we can send reinforcements now with MAGA candidates. 

Then there’s the Deep State. The Deep State consists of weaponized agencies we may have trusted at one time. No more. The FBI is a prime example of a corrupted agency we can no longer trust. There are others. i do not have to name them all. You know by now who the bad actors are. 

We have people like Lindsey Graham who was on Hannity darned near every week telling us what he was going to do.  i like to give people the benefit of the doubt, even Lindsey. There  came a point it was obvious he was all talk and no action.  He stabbed Trump in the back enough times for me to know he wasn’t on our side at all.  Trump pegged him. He’s a nice guy but he’s a 🦏.

IF it came down to a choice between Lindsey and a Democrat i’d have to pick Lindsey but i wouldn’t set my expectations very high if he won. We have to be realistic, right?

Trump didn’t always pick the best people to surround himself with but there’s no getting around that he picked the best economic team you could ask for. He’ll probably do much better in 2024 knowing what he knows now. There’s too few to choose from. That’s one of the problems. He didn’t have any DC connections-that was a curse and a blessing. When he got elected in 2016 he tried to work with what he had. McConnell was what he had. Do i need to say more? 

Trump didn’t have only the Dems to deal with; he had the Never Trumpers lurking around every corner.  It’s amazing he accomplished as much as he did. He gets big props for that. Now that he knows where the bodies are buried the Dems and Never Trumpers will be more determined to get rid of him in 24 than they were in 2020. Be ready folks. It’s going to get brutal.

We already know we have to get Cheney.Romney, Murkowski and Collins out. The first 2 are Trump haters, the latter are Rhinos. They vote with the Democrats more often than not. Cheney and Romney are straight up evil. Then there’s McCconnell and John Thune. Neither of these people should be leaders. McConnell has been getting Thune ready to take his place. All we need to know.Anyone with ties to China (Mitch McConnell),OUT THE DOOR. An R in front of their name shouldn’t save them. MAGA ONLY in 2022.

I know some people are upset with Trump endorsing Gov Greg Abbot of Texas. i get why he endorsed Abbot. Abbott backed Trump from the beginning. When Trump needed his support he got it.   Trump’s endorsement is understandable at least isn’t it? It’s altogether possible they got along well when Trump was President. It could be that simple.  IMHO Abbot has been a decent governor-seen worse.

We have to keep Texas and Florida red. NY and California are solid blue and they carry THE most electoral votes. It always makes it difficult-though not impossible-for Republicans. We can’t afford to lose the 2 largest red states[in order for Trump to win] and even with those 2 it’s a tough road to hoe. Without them it’d be impossible. 

The biggest lesson learned is how corrupt the Dems are and how low they will go to get power. The problem is they didn’t see themselves as corrupt or low. They honestly believed or convinced themselves(not sure which)that their corruption was righteous. They seemed to think rigging the election and doing whatever it took saved our democracy. Honest to God,who thinks corruption is good for a democratic election? Unfortunately the Never Trumpers had the same mind set and if that meant helping the Democrats get away with it, they decided so be it. 

Now that we’ve seen what they are capable of we have to know that 2024 is not going to be a cake walk. We have to clean house in 2022 to have a shot for Trump in 2024. Biden’s agenda has to be stopped anyway so  this years elections will be critical for 2 good reasons. It’d be great to know Pelosi would not be Speaker anymore. We’ve had enough of her nonsense. Between her and Biden the crazy is off the charts.  

Trump’s election was an eye opener wasn’t it? We knew DC was a swamp. i don’t think we knew how much of a swamp it was. We learned about the Deep State and that it wasn’t a conspiracy theory. It was real and deeper than we could have imagined. Our President had his eyes opened too. Whenever he has an interview you can hear  in his voice how heartbroken he is over what has happened to our country since Biden was sworn in. No doubt it has to keep him awake at night. I know some people think he should move on from 2020. When he does make the formal announcement he will probably focus more on 24,but it’s important  to keep an eye on the crooks. It worked once. They’re bound to try it again. All they are going to do is scheme every single day; they’ll go with what worked and come up with some new ones. The worse Biden’s agenda does the more nefarious they will get.

There’s really no way not to discuss the 2020 election is there? i don’t see how it can be avoided. i know, it feels like we’re beating a dead horse. i get that too. Look at it this way, someday it will be behind us and become one for the history books. Speaking of one for the history books, there was a President that served twice & not in consecutive terms. 

*I’m tempted to say when but i don’t want to take it for granted especially when it’s going to be a battle all the way. We always want to fight like we’re the underdogs.

BLS Cooks Books to Generate January Jobs Report That No One Believes, For Good Reason – The Last Refuge

There really isn’t an adequate way to encapsulate what the Bureau of Labor and Statistics has done with their reported January jobs result [Main Data Here].   If you want a deep weeds review of the actuarial scheme deployed READ THIS ARTICLE. In my lifetime of reviewing data and analytics, I have never reviewed a level of statistical manipulation that even comes close to this.  Well, at least not since the 1980’s junk bond valuations used for corporate restructuring and asset removal.  What the BLS produced today will likely go down in the annals of actuarial history as one of the most comprehensively fraudulent manipulations of labor and statistics in history.

Ep 1,618 – Pence Turns On Trump; RNC Fails To Expel Cheney; McCarthy Gets Tough; Canadian Truckers

For those of us who either attended or watched ‘Pres Trump’s Jan 6 DC rally know exactly what he said that day. I watched via rsbn.tv network. He never said a peep about Pence overturning the election. That’s nonsense. It’s the Democrat/media narrative. All he said was that he hoped-as we did-Pence would “do the right thing” As his speech was ending he told the crowd to march peacefully and patriotically to the Capitol. Not once did he incite violence.

The electors should never have been given to Biden from the states that broke election laws. The whole election was rigged. You know what they had planned for 2020 by what they’ve been trying to pass into law in the so called voting rights act. It includes everything they pulled in the 2020 election and it’s thoroughly unconstitutional. You can’t pass laws that violate the Constitution. PERIOD. There’s the problem with the law they are trying to pass now AND what they already did in 2020. They violated the Constitution in all the swing states that threw the election to Biden.They didn’t have to rig the election in all the states; only the ones that would get Biden the 270 he needed. Now they are trying to do it again. They’re desperate to stop Trump.

i believe Pence went along with the Democrats for one reason alone. He didn’t do the right thing because he was thinking about his own political ambitions. Now he thinks he might run for President. Who does he think will vote for him?

McConnell [and his prodigy John Thune[ and other establishment Republicans are rats too. The RNC is weak kneed. Do not donate directly to the RNC. Find the MAGA candidates YOU support and donate DIRECTLY to them. McConnell, McCarthy,Cheney, Romney , Lindsey Graham, Pence and the old GOP that tried to stop Trump the last time are going to align with the Democrats and try to stop Trump in 2024. They didn’t back the Trump policies when he was in office. They worry more about what the media will say about them than what we think of them.

Lindsey Graham was always going to do something. He n ever did squid. Now that Trump is out of office and the rats are showing their faces he’s revealing himself. for the rat he is too. Lindsey was all talk. I’ll give him props for standing up for the Kavanaugh appointment but it ends there. The RNC failed again by not expelling Cheney but i’m not the least bit surprised. Of course they didn’t expel Cheney. They never intended to. They support the rats and give lip service just like Lindsey. They do just enough to look like they might actually be on our side. They’re not. McConnell and McCarthy have never been on our side. Watch what they do not what they say.

I have a few words for the people who voted Biden and now regret it. You knew what you were getting. If you didn’t know you should have. The MAGA people knew. You knew the Russia collusion story was a hoax-a plot to either keep Trump out of office or take him out if he won it. it was revealed for what it was before the Nov 3,2020 election. You knew they censored the Hunter laptop story. They tried to claim it was Russian misinformation. Fooled you once shame on them. Fooled you twice-you know the rest. Didn’t it make you even mildly curious why they were so intent on keeping it buried? The actions of the media/ big tech were suspicious from the get.

The economy was in good shape, we were staying out of wars, the border was secure enough and improving, the poverty rate was dropping, Trump backed law enforcement, we were energy independent. gas was affordable and inflation was under control. You vote for the candidate if things are going well. The other guy-Biden-didn’t even bother to campaign. He hid out all the time. Did you think he would do any differently if he were elected? He promised to stop the virus. Did you fall for this? There was no way on earth either candidate could stop the virus. They’re not gods with miraculous powers. Did any of you people bother to look into Joe Biden’s history? Did any of you people actually listen to what he had to say? Did you bother to take note of his lack of cognitive ability?

All the media cared about was the kind of ice cream he liked. He had moments on the campaign trail (when he actually came out of hiding)where he was downright nasty to people. You didn’t notice? Good ol lunch bucket Joe had 3-4 mansions and millions when all he ever did was politics. He spent nearly all of his life in the DC swamp. They don’t have the kind of salary it would take to put them in Joe Biden’s bracket. You people who voted Biden didn’t notice?

When you break election laws for a candidate,they don’t really win the election-they get installed. Pres Trump had a right to question the election results. We questioned them. Pence should have done the right thing. Look at the mess we’re in now. He thinks he can run for election and win? I see 2 people heading for the dust bin of history IF we don’t let them rig the next Presidential election. Who would they be? Pence and Biden. I don’t hate Pence. i know that he doesn’t have the backbone to make for a good President and stand up for us. He proved that. I have no time for backstabbers like Pence,Cheney and Romney either. You’re either with us or against us.

Support the warriors we have; Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Majorie Taylor Greene and anyone willing to stand up for MAGA. I know we can count them on one hand but we have to be there for them.

I’ll give Kevin McCarthy the benefit of the doubt for now. McConnell gets none. It’s time for him to retire or be challenged and that doesn’t mean John Thune steps in. We don’t need a McConnell boot licker.
