The Morning Report — 7/20/22


Good morning, kids. Wednesday and say what you will about Donald Trump as a president or perhaps as a candidate for 2024. There is no doubt that the anti-globalist, anti-Leftist, pro-American agenda is an absolute winner, even in deepest, bluest Democrat strongholds. Ironically, what makes it such a winner is not so much because for three solid years, everyone across the board felt the effects of the greatest economic boom time in American history. It's that contrasted with 18 solid months of the wanton, intentional destruction of the personal wealth of virtually every American citizen due to the ideologically driven incompetence of those pulling the strings of President Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants.

As Ace and a number of cobs, most notably CBD, have noted over the past several months, is the utter uselessness and indeed co-conspiratorial nature of the GOP in aiding and abetting America's gradual dissolution since the 60s, and now all-at-once since Dubya/Obama. If electoral politics still means something more than merely a barometer (and I do have serious doubts), then the GOP either has to be wiped out or taken over by MAGA acolytes, primary by bloody primary. This primary season, Trump-endorsed candidates have won an overwhelming number of victories and last night in Maryland of all places, another one took the prize.

Maryland Delegate Dan Cox (R-04), who secured former President Donald J. Trump’s highly valuable endorsement, defeated Trump critic Gov. Larry Hogan’s (R-MD) choice as his successor, Kelly Schulz, in Maryland’s Republican gubernatorial primary.

Cox was the only candidate with Trump’s backing in a contest Tuesday night and handily beat out Schulz, who served as secretary of labor, licensing, and regulation and secretary of commerce during different points of Hogan’s administration. Trump endorsed Cox in November, and the race became a microcosm of something much larger happening in the GOP as the America First movement and Republican establishment battle for the soul of the party. With 68 percent reporting at 11:20 p.m., Cox had garnered 56 percent of the vote, trouncing Schulz, who took home 40 percent, the Associated Press election results shared by the New York Times show. The victory signals that conservatives in Maryland are more aligned with Trump than the departing governor. . .

. . . The victory puts Trump’s endorsement record at 147-10 in 2022, and notably, Trump has been perfect with his picks in 22 other states.

Again, I do not think these results are purely because of Donald Trump the president, let alone the man. Republicans fully understand the nature of the GOPe and have had enough, They do not want candidates who accept the Leftist narrative on a whole range of issues. They want unabashed, unafraid individuals to tell the Left and the media (but I repeat myself) to take their pronouns, pronouncements and perversions and shove them up their ass until it comes out their nose.

That said, the question of Trump's potential candidacy in 2024 remains. I am in the camp that he should not run. I think he's too old, despite his mental faculties still very much intact, and some of his unforced errors, particularly with Fauci and the CDC in the initial handling of the psy-op pandemic which was the biggest and ultimately led to his undoing. I think he should use his well-deserved fame and following to lead an actual movement that goes beyond just electoral politics. But, the tea leaves seem to indicate that he indeed will throw his yuuuge MAGA hat into the ring, probably some time soon after the midterms. I think he sees his incredible winning streak with his endorsements as an endorsement of him at the top of the ticket in '24 and not the reaction to the past 18 months of hell on earth.

Look, if he gets the nod, I will crawl naked through molten lava to vote for him. But I think we're better served with Ron DeSantis as the standard-bearer. Young, a fighter who not only defends himself but goes on the attack against the left, and has made Florida into a beacon of freedom and prosperity.

What I also think DeSantis can do — and really, all the MAGA candidates must do going forward — is win over the disaffected by doing everything the GOPe never did: boldly stating the case for American economic prosperity, societal normalcy and stability and foreign policy sanity by attacking everyone and everything Democrat/Leftist, nonstop and with no mercy. Has to be done. Again, does electoral politics really make an actual difference in effecting an actual reversal of course when every aspect of both the public and private sectors has been so thoroughly corrupted? Not by itself. Perhaps not at all. Yet more and more people are scared shitless of where we are going. We will always have the low-information voter, but thanks to what our government and both parties have wrought, that segment of the populace is shrinking in direct proportion to the rising cost of living. I guess we have that to be grateful for.

The very concept of IQ, the Stanford-Binet test, and things similar, is, as its critics argue, a cultural construct—less a measure of potential than of capacities already developed. It’s no surprise that persons growing up in environments which stimulate and enable the development of human possibilities do in fact develop more of these."
