Five PDT ads

It’s just starting but here we begin with this: Five Trump Ads. You should go to the link to see them all, but here’ one.

How anyone can even think of voting for Biden and Harris is beyond me. Not just no sense of danger, but no sense at all. And you might also have a look at this: The Biden-Harris Levitation which begins:

Each week in the inexorable march to Election Day, it becomes more challenging to believe how the campaign is unfolding and to rationalize it as a serious process for choosing the leader of the world’s greatest nation. After some reflection, it becomes clear that the extreme improbability of this process is the result of it not really being a race between two pairs of candidates for national office. It is surely the last round in the great battle between Donald Trump and the national political media.

Trump’s ostensible opponents, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, are a spavined political wheel-horse who came in fifth in the New Hampshire primary and a vice presidential nominee who flamed out ignominiously two months before the Iowa caucuses. They are a matched pair of bombed-out losers; Biden was retrieved by the party elders in desperation that otherwise the Democratic candidate would be Marxist Senator Bernie Sanders. They salvaged Biden and Biden salvaged Harris from the pre-primary ash heap.

Democracy is undoubtedly the worst form of political system except for all of the others that have been tried from time to time.



Yes, President Trump enjoys the overwhelming loyalty of Republican voters—but his hold on Republican donors, and especially officials, is much more tenuous. He ran against them and won—and most of them will never forgive him. They play nice to his face and undermine him behind his back. That’s before we even get to the ones in open rebellion. No president—Democrat or Republican—has ever come to power facing organized efforts by his own party’s middle management to tally lists of people declaring on the record that under no circumstances will they work for the incoming administration. It’s been hard, to say the least, to staff up when a good chunk of the party is dead-set against their leader, and nearly all the rest spent their careers furthering policies diametrically opposed to those he ran—and won—on.

And that’s just President Trump’s ostensible own side. Then factor in all his open enemies from the other party, and virtually every other power center in our society, plus the steadfast opposition of the so-called “deep state”—i.e., the very federal bureaucrats whom he was elected to oversee and direct. Viewed from this angle, one may fairly wonder how it’s been possible for him to accomplish anything at all.

More fundamentally: where do you think the country would be without him?

In the crapper.

Generally, I am cynical about blaming governments and absolving the populace that puts them there. For example, many say, it’s not the Chinese people who are to blame but their communist government. I don’t buy it. There is usually something rotten in a culture that produces corrupt or despotic government. America faces a test in November. If Biden and Harris are elected it will say a lot about the drift of the American population, taken as a whole, towards the dark side. This might be put down to immigration and the changing racial and cultural makeup of the population. However, there are too many multigenerational Americans sticking to the Dems as they drift further and further to the woke left to blame it on immigration. We shall see. The result will tell us whether western civilisation is likely doomed or whether there is still a chance.
