The Morning Report - 8/28/20

ourgreatwors.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend is here and to quote the late Jim McKay the finale of the Republican National Convention compared and contrasted with the vile, brutish display outside the White House, in flaming cities and the black hearts of Leftists, represented at once "our greatest hopes, our worst fears."

As for President Trump, he yet again knocked it out of the park. While any speech, from the State of the Union addresses to the speech at Mount Rushmore to the 75th anniversary D-Day commemoration or any over the past four years were stem-winders in their own right, his acceptance speech last night was no different. Except for the fact that it was no doubt the most important of his political career so far.

Michael Goodwin in the New York Post:

And on Day 4, there was no more Mr. Nice Guy!

Republicans spent the better part of three nights in their convention presenting softer and gentler sides of President Trump, but the president gets the final words and he came out Thursday in a fighting mood.

His acceptance speech detailed his successes and offered promises aplenty for a second term, but the emphasis and energy were committed to a scorched-earth attack on Joe Biden and the Democrats. Trump threw so many punches at his opponent that, had it been a real heavyweight boxing match, the referee would have stopped it in the middle rounds out of mercy.

Some samples: "This election will decide whether we save the American Dream, or whether we allow a socialist agenda to demolish our cherished destiny."

Then later: "How can the Democrat Party ask to lead our country when it spends so much time tearing down our country?"

Michael Goodwin's nonsensical belief in the accuracy of polling and even more ridiculous "concern" over Trump's style and manner being a turn-off aside, his overall view that Trump destroyed Biden and the Dems, at least with the conventions, is spot on.

Morning Report stalwart Daniel Greenfield was over the moon about last night, and justifiably so:

The final night of the RNC wasn't just a powerful antidote to the DNC, or even to the mainstream media alone, but to the hypocritical totalitarianism and the corporate buzzwords that we have been drowning in since the winter gave way to the spring, and to fear and violence.

President Trump and the array of speakers for the fourth night did not deny that we are a nation in crisis, instead they lit a torch to light the nation's way out of the tyranny of terror and lies...

Speaker after speaker laid out the case that Biden and the Democrats had abandoned America because they despised her and her people, that a newly radical party could only envision a relentless drumbeat of change that would utterly destroy everything we love and believe in.

"This is the most important election in the history of our country. At no time before have voters faced a clearer choice between two parties, two visions, two philosophies, or two agendas. This election will decide whether we save the American Dream, or whether we allow a socialist agenda to demolish our cherished destiny," President Trump told a watching nation.

Yes, the speech was tremendous. But one of the things that made it so was all of the speeches made that night and the previous three from real people - real Americans and not condescending, celebrity imbeciles or self-righteous fraudster politicians - who are what this President represents, in the fullest sense of that word. That, to my way of thinking is exactly what makes "Make America Great Again" so much more than a mere campaign slogan, but a calling and indeed a way of life.

And then there was the protesting outside the White House that turned ugly and violent. Many attendees, either on their way to or coming from the event, were accosted and harassed on the streets including Rand Paul and his wife. Most horrendous was an older man who was beaten and shoved to the ground by Leftist scum while just walking on the street to see the fireworks. His crime? Being in public wearing a "Trump 2020" shirt. Maybe the whorehouse piss boys at XiNN will tell us it was a mostly peaceful ass-kicking and that the deviant knuckle-dragging Nazi should be grateful for getting an education.

While certainly the Leftists had a right to be jackasses and peacefully stage whatever infantile papier-mache dummy fueled street theater they wanted, considering that what's going down in Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, Chicago and elsewhere they should have stayed home. All they did was underscore and put an exclamation point on what Trump and the guest speakers were saying.

Most poignant of all was the widow of martyred retired police captain David Dorn. And I mean "martyr" in the absolute stone-cold truth of the word.

They shot and killed Dave in cold blood and livestreamed the execution and his last moments on this earth. Dave's grandson was watching the video on Facebook in real time, not realizing he was watching his own grandfather dying on the sidewalk.

I learned of all this around 4:00 am when our doorbell rang. The Chief of Police was standing outside. I wondered why Dave had not answered the door. It wasn't uncommon for him to be up watching TV at that time. I called out to him several times. No reply. He wasn't there. I let in the Chief. Fighting back tears, he uttered the words every officer's spouse dreads.

I re-live that horror in my mind every single day. My hope is that having you re-live it with me now will help shake this country from the nightmare we are witnessing in our cities and bring about positive, peaceful change.

Now that the most evil woman in America, Malig-Nancy Pelosi has officially declared the President, the Republican Party and perhaps two thirds of the nation as "enemies of the state," she has also tacitly sanctioned the killing of anyone and everyone who does not submit to the Democrat Party, regardless of whether Trump wins or not come November. Yes, I mean exactly that. She laid down that marker. And that's why the actions of Kyle Rittenhouse may loom very large in the immediate aftermath of Election Day. I pray to G-d it doesn't because I do believe that even with the Mail-In Voting election swindle they will doubtless attempt to pull off, Trump is going to win easily beyond the margin of cheating, and perhaps in the closest thing to a landslide given the realities of today's political landscape.

And so here we go. "Our greatest hopes, our worst fears." Indeed.

Have a great weekend.
