SHREVEPORT – Is former New Orleans governor Mitch Landrieu going to run for president?  A Landrieu candidacy has been getting a lot of attention of late and if I were a betting person, I’d say he is going to run.

Landrieu is, of course, being coy about it which is to be expected at this early date.

CNN speculates that Landrieu is hoping Joe Biden will run against President Trump in 2020:

When Mitch Landrieu discusses his ideal opponent for President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, he acknowledges it sounds like he’s describing Joe Biden.

“I would like somebody that could restore America’s stature in the world on day one,” the Democratic former New Orleans mayor said in a televised edition of “The Axe Files,” airing Saturday at 7 p.m. ET on CNN.

“I would like somebody that knows exactly what they’re doing, because they’ve done that before, that can stabilize and just rebalance the country for four years,” he told CNN’s David Axelrod, who countered that it sounded like Landrieu was describing the former vice president.

“I think I am. Honestly,” Landrieu said. “If I had to pick today, I would — and he could take over tomorrow, and — you know, life would be a lot better for everybody.”

Recent poll results reported at The Hill have Biden leading the pack for the Democrats with Hillary coming in second and Bernie Sanders after her.  Some things never change.

Landrieu would be a dark horse candidate.  His main claim to fame, besides his family name, is his removal of the Confederate monuments in New Orleans on the advice of jazz musician Wynton Marsalis.

This created months of protests and problems in New Orleans and while Landrieu was myopically focused on the statues issue, NOLA crime spiraled out of control and complaints were raised about the crumbling infrastructure.

Earlier this month, Politico published a puff piece on Landrieu that is difficult to get through for those of us who disagreed with Landrieu’s portrayal of Americans as barbarians whenever he spoke about the monuments.  The author of the piece, Edward-Isaac Dovere, fawns over what he calls Landrieu’s “Obama-like intellectualism” and praises Landrieu’s intellect and control.

If Landrieu does indeed run in 2020, the monuments issue will certainly be an issue as it most directly ties into our national history; the issue of racism will also be center stage as that is the reason Landrieu cites for their removal.

There are many issues about a Landrieu presidency that would have to be carefully considered.  What position would his sister play in a Landrieu presidency, if any?  How much influence would she bring to her brother’s term?

It’s too early (for me) to speculate too heavily on 2020, but many are already playing the game and Landrieu knows that.  He’s getting out there and with his new book and book tour underway, he has a nice platform to do that.

Perhaps it’s not too early to start doing our research after all.

If you really want to understand why our friends on the left are going as violently mad as they are you can’t do better than what Larry Schweikart found in the latest 538 poll

Do you see what those numbers say? Larry does.

Particularly these numbers on “hispanics”

(incidentally “Hispanics” is in quotes because it refers to the mythical land of “Hispanica” as referenced in this post about the Massachusetts Senate Special election of a few years ago).

And remember these number are BEFORE Democrats publicly decided segregation at restaurants was a good thing

To me this confirmed what old friend Kurt Schlichter wrote Monday concerning their options:

That leaves them only violence. We’ve already seen it, and you can sense that it’s only a matter of time before the liberals openly embrace it. They have set the conditions for it. They have dehumanized the opposition, that is, us. Their lesser tactics aren’t working. The lies no longer resonate because we Normals are woke – the polls indicate that most Americans greeted the whole kids in cages fraud with a collective shrug. Criminals separated from their kids? Doesn’t that happen every day? It would sure happen to us if we broke the law, since we aren’t the Democrats’ Great Foreign Hope for a future electorate that is pliable and obedient.

Intimidation isn’t working. It makes the libs quiver with joy, but it just makes us mad. Getting your opponent riled up is a poor strategy, especially at the ballot box. Mad people tend to retaliate. November is coming, and we all fully understand that every middle finger selfie, every vicious tweet, every assault on a conservative diner, is an attack on us.

And while a George Will, anxious to be able to enjoy fine dining without incidents from angry leftists, will play along with this stuff, most Trump voters who realize the “new rules” target them where they live will not.

The irony in all of this is if the left had not gone mad and had decided to fight the President on the legislative field where he is the least experienced rather than in the media field where is the strongest they might have made progress against him, but they quickly discovered you could get more clicks, higher rating and raise more money by encouraging the mob so they did.

This isn’t working out too well because just as the right thing is usually the smart thing the wrong thing: Working people into a frenzy for short term profit, is turning out to be the dumb thing.

Attacking the survivor of a political assassination attempt as a “Nazi puke” for daring to suggest that civility and respect are the better option does not win over GOP and independent voters needed to win elections and as the President has indicated suggesting pols you dislike should be visited by mobs might end poorly, particularly if your political opponents are well armed.

But alas for the left they’ve whipped up their own people so badly that when even Nancy Pelosi mildly suggests that chasing people out of restaurants and public spaces she gets pummeled by her own side and God forbid that you suggest it’s a dumb move politically like Axelrod did. Out of the Woke Arms they must go!

In the end somebody is going to end up killed and I suspect that person is not going to be a person of the right but one of the left, but I also suspect they consider that a feature rather than a bug, but that’s tomorrow’s post.

There are a lot of people who still misjudge and underestimate Donald Trump and it started this day three years ago.  It worth revisiting that original speech that got it all started

and the media reaction to it;

To make a long story short the entire MSM’s take on Donald Trump’s speech sounded like the Movie Blazing Saddles when Bart starts singing his version of: “I get a kick out of you.” with the MSM playing Lyle the overseer shouting:

“Hold it What the hell is that shit?”

I remember listening to the speech and thinking it was first rate while everyone I spoke to and know, particularly in media heard something completely different.  I’d like to quote myself in full from my post I put up just as the speech finished

…the MSM didn’t get understand what Trump was doing.

1. They were looking for a standard announcement speech.  Trump didn’t want to give one.  Trump’s base, if he has one, consists of people who normally don’t give a damn about an election.

2. They were looking for wonk stuff that they could take apart.  Trump didn’t do wonk stuff. People don’t understand wonk stuff, don’t want to hear wonk stuff and change the channel when wonk stuff is on TV.

3.  They expected Trump to try to impress them.  Trump didn’t even try.  He knows what the media think of him.  He wanted to impress the people who are impressed by a person who has made it and made it big.

4. They expected a stage managed event.  Trump wasn’t looking to do that.  He wanted to give a speech that didn’t appear stage managed or written by a speech writer.  He wanted a speech that sounded like the guy having a beer at a barbecue with you was talking .

5.  Finally they were expecting a tight event.  Trump didn’t give one.  He understands how television works, he gave a speech specifically designed to force the networks covering him to stick with him much longer than they would have planned to do so.

Bottom line Trump speech had specific goals in mind:

1.  Reach the people who generally don’t watch this kind of speech.

2.  Hit on the themes in the language a low information voter can understand.

3.  Make a speech that the networks covering it didn’t dare leave

4.  Go long enough so people seeing it would tweet out to their friends who aren’t watching Cable News: “You’ve got to turn this on and see this” so folks would switch over from the Price is Right or the View,

5.  Make a speech that would build audience would build and hit the top of the hour so that all the news shows AND Rush Limbaugh would be talking about it at once generating buzz by the buckets.

His goal had nothing to do the reporters or networks covering him.  He wasn’t playing the game by the rules they expected, he made his own rules and made them play along. He accomplished exactly what he wanted to do in the way he wanted to do it.

In other words he punked the MSM and punked them good and just like Bart in Mel Brooks Blazing Saddles, he’s laughing at them.

In fairness to the MSM et/all they had no experience of a candidate like Trump and even the Twitter numbers which caught my eye from day one didn’t phase them.

But it’s been THREE YEARS NOW, Trump hasn’t changed his tactics or his style and while some people like Senator Ted Cruz have changed their minds, their perception of President Trump evolving based on the facts on the ground and the record of accomplishment per this CPAC interview:

The media/left and the never Trump still doesn’t get it. They remain in the bubble where they think every time Trump speaks it’s going to doom him.

The left has 4 months to figure this out before the midterms and two years to do so before the election of 2020. Based on what I’ve seen these last three years I don’t think they’ll manage it.

Update:  Fixed an error in tense

We are once again seeing people suddenly apologize for daring to like a Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey found himself back pedaling after tweeting about using Chick-fil-A’s mobile app, saying he’d forgotten about the fast-food chain’s history of opposing gay marriage.

Dorsey found himself the subject of a tweetstorm after he posted a screenshot showing how he’d saved 10 percent using Chick-fil-A’s app at one of the fast-food chain’s outlets in Los Angeles.

Reaction was swift:

Given that the biggest obstacle for the right in election 2018 is energizing their voters this is exactly the type of thing that will help boost GOP turnout.

Between this Chick-Fil-A nonsense and the Robert Di Niro / Tony Award standing O I think you’re going to get a lot of angry Trump voters dying to re-elect even week republicans to stick a finger in their eye.

Seriously is the GOP paying these guys?

Finally might I suggest my book Hail Mary the Perfect Protestant (and Catholic) Prayer makes an excellent Gift.

It isn’t often that I disagree with Don Surber but this take on Mitt Romney is less that what it seems.

While Romney is running for the Senate in a Republican state, he is more popular than Trump so he really does not need to kiss up.

But he is one Never Trumper giving the president his due.

“Romney, who harshly criticized Trump over the years, said he supports much of what the president has done such as cutting taxes, rolling back business regulations and reducing the size of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in southern Utah,” the newspaper reported.

I have to disagree, he in fact IS making it a point to kiss up to Trump and making sure everyone sees it.

This serves several purposes.

First of all while it is unlikely, even in the year of a blue wave that Mitt’s Democrat opponent would get enough traction to win, Anything resembling a close race in Utah, a state where he beat Barack Obama by 48 points in 2012, would be a real embarrassment. What would it say about the credibility or popularity of most prominent Mormon in the United States if his margin of victory in the state is under 10 points?

Second Romney understands that if (most likely when) elected he will be the most prominent nevertrumper in the US Senate. He understands that this is the same dynamic as the 2012 GOP primaries where he will become the default goto GOP member for the entire MSM. He will of course have to be able to defend GOP priorities, Tax Cuts, Regulatory Cuts et all, but even so he knows that as long as he is willing to hit the president he will always have the seat of honor at the MSM table and will unlike Ted Cruz, unlikely to be shadowbanned on social media.

Finally lets not forget Mitt still considers himself the smartest man in the room and when it comes time for 2020 there is the prospect that he will decide to carry the Nevertrump banner himself, promising all the economic benefits with none of the drama and betting that he can beat Trump in Iowa where Ted Cruz won and in NH where he still has strength. He’ll have a year of positive press coverage behind him and unending series accolades from establishment GOP members hungry for the power that they consider their birthright. But he can’t promise the Trump economy without the Trump in 2020 if he isn’t backing the policies that made it in 2018.

Now to you and me all of this might sound ridiculous. Not only is Romney unlikely to draw the “deplorable” vote in the general election necessary to win Michigan, Pennsylvania or Wisconsin (which is why the MSM will be happy to back him in the primaries) but he certainly not going to be able to counter whoever the Democrats put up against him but that’s not the message of the political consultant class dying to get a piece of their lucrative pie once again.

You can bet those fellows have been telling him that he is the voice of reason in a sea of nasty tweets. The person of character for a #metoo era that rejects a thrice married lech who cheats on his wife with porn starts. He is the man who is going to save the GOP from Trump and all he stand for, and they will be proud guide him to that destiny…for their usual fee of course.

Maybe Mitt is old and wise enough to eventually figure out the con before he embarrasses himself come 2020 but until them it costs him nothing to play nice now and keep his options open.

I’m remembering the coy saying about the French resistance. “If everyone who claimed to be in the resistance really had been, there would have been nobody left to collaborate.”

A few minutes ago I watched Oprah’s speech at the golden globes talking about empowering

women that has the left all a twitter (pun intended) about the possibility of an Oprah run for the presidency.

As nothing is impossible I won’t discount this completely but I want to remind all of you of something.

Oprah has been one of the most richest powerful women in the entertainment world for a very long time.  She is a person who can make or break a book or a film or a career.  All of Hollywood has paid homage to her for many many years.  The entire media complex hangs on her words, and as demonstrated this weekend when she talks about the plight of women, people listen.

And yet during all the year that Harvey Weinstein et/all were on the prowl she never bothered to speak out against him or give a platform for his victims to do so!

If anyone had the power to speak out and break this open it was Oprah.  Her power and influence was enough that Weinstein and the others would not be able to bring her down for talking, and if they had tried the public would have rallied behind her.  All she had to do was speak out and proclaim “Enough!”

She did not.

Oprah speech wasn’t brave, it wasn’t grand, it was designed to change the conversation away from a single basic fact that Glenn Reynolds put very well.

These guys were a huge source of cash and power for the left, and to expose them and to protect those women would expose the Hollywood left for what they were.

If Oprah really cared about all these things she talked about in her speech at the golden globes as opposed to being a member of the Harvey Weinstein left, she would have given that speech last year, or the year before or the year before that.

She did not.

Never forget that.

Update: Rose McGowan get it

ROSE McGowan has lashed out at the stars who wore black to the Golden Globes, accusing them of “Hollywood fakery” for failing to take a stand against the sex abuse claims sooner.

The Charmed star claims the famous females who united against the scandal “wouldn’t have lifted a finger” to help if she hadn’t gone public with allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

Finally might I suggest my book  Hail Mary the Perfect Protestant (and Catholic) Prayer makes an excellent Gift.

A few days ago I wrote that the entire NFL protest business was a trap for Democrats that they cheerfully walked right into:

this helps Trump in places that he needs to win again and hurts him in places that he’s doesn’t, while helping the left in places that they are already winning in and hurts them in swing states and districts.

Because nothing is going to win over white working class voters than a bunch of rich athletes talking about how oppressed they are by the country that made them rich.

I got a lot of grief over thing on twitter both from the left and from nevertrumpers who insisted that this was a huge defeat for Trump and a huge win for the NFL and that the President has embarrassed himself.

Three days later this is from the Hill:

While Democrats broadly say Trump’s fight with the NFL and NBA will help them politically in both the 2018 and 2020 elections, they also appear wary of completely entering the fray on the controversial issue.

Potential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) didn’t put out press releases on the issue or weigh in on Twitter, at least as of Tuesday night.

That’s odd? I thought the media both political and sports called this a losing issue for Trump.

Democratic insiders, strategists and sources close to potential candidates say it’s tricky to work out the right message that knocks Trump for what many privately see as race baiting but that is not perceived as criticism of the flag or anthem.

Being cast as insufficiently patriotic is a charge countless Democrats have had to deal with for generations.

“I think everyone is aware of the tight rope we have to walk on this issue,” said one Democrat who has spoken to Democratic National Committee officials about the latest controversy. “I think that’s something we’re all trying to figure out now.”

Harris’s and Warren’s offices declined to comment for this story. Sanders’s and Booker’s offices did not respond to requests for comment.

Remember these are national democrat candidates who are trying to appeal to Democrat primary voter and not even the candidates of color like Booker or Harris are willing to go out there.

If these national ultra liberals candidates are not willing to put themselves out there, how much less willing will Democrat candidates for Senate in Red States be willing to do so?

To find out I called Claire McCaskill’s office to get commentary I was transferred to the Press office’s voice mail where I left a message asking “Does Senator McCaskill support or oppose NFL players kneeling for the National anthem?”

Over the next several days I’m going to call offices of the all the other Senators running for Re-election in 2018. It will be interesting to see if the answers vary based on both party and how their state voted in 2016.

I’ll give the last word to Ari Fleischer

I think 2018 will be just as much fun.

Deplorable me
In between reports on Hurricane Harvey the press is managing some outrage over the pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio who had been jailed for criminal contempt.

While the pardon was not a huge surprise (and the timing on a Friday evening during a Cat 4 Hurricane makes the ultimate news dump) rest assured that by the time we get to the Sunday News shows there will be experts on the left beating their breasts over it and insisting that it’s a sign of racism on the part of Donald Trump and his supporters and breathlessly predicting their fall.

He’re why that effort will fail in a single headline:

Trump pardons controversial
Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio after he was
convicted of contempt for refusing to stop
targeting illegal immigrants for arrest

The american voters who gave Trump his majorities in 29 states understand that an illegal immigrant is, by his very presence, breaking the law, and the very idea that it’s “controversial” to target those breaking the law for arrest is so asinine and so nakedly political that sensible voters reject it out of hand.

To be sure in the blue media this will be yet another sign of the apocalypse and the never trump forces in the GOP will find themselves prominently featured by the press condemning this.

However that willingness to make this move and telegraph it in advance knowing the reaction it would cause will only reinforce the solid support this president has among his base of deplorables who will see the media reaction and realize they still don’t get it.

I think Trump already has his path for 2020 mapped out and intends to have the media and left pave it for him.

They just haven’t figured it out yet.

We’ve talked about how the events on the Boston Common justified some folks on the left and a few days later we named the Honorable Mentions in the Contest of being the big winner from events on the Boston Common.

Now the time has come to name the biggest single winner from the events of last weekend: Donald J. Trump.

To some of you this might seem counter intuitive. Since Charlottsville the entire MSM has fully embraced their new “Donald Trump/Nazi/KKK” meme to the point where you have to make real effort to find the word “Russia” in any kind of coverage anymore.

Furthermore in Boston for a week we’ve heard about a Nazi/Klan rally about to happen in Boston and once the event took place the media fully embraced the tale of tens of thousands of ordinary citizens assembling without violence united to counter the Nazis and their hero Donald J Trump.

Unfortunately for the MSM there were two problems with their uncritical assessment of the events of Boston. First of all the conspicuous lack of Nazis to protest.

IF ONE LINE captured the essence of Saturday’s Boston Common rally and counter-protest, it was a quote halfway through Mark Arsenault’s Page 1 story in the Boston Globe:

“‘Excuse me,’ one man in the counter-protest innocently asked a Globe reporter. ‘Where are the white supremacists?'”

That was the day in a nutshell. Participants in the “Boston Free Speech Rally” had been demonized as a troupe of neo-Nazis prepared to reprise the horror that had erupted in Charlottesville. They turned out to be a couple dozen courteous people linked by little more than a commitment to — surprise! — free speech.

And then there were the actions of some of the protesters particularly the ANTIFA folks which while downplayed by the national and local media were highlighted by Boston Police Tweets like this

and this:

and covered like my own and others showing ANTIFA thugs being, well Antifa thugs

And a few days later in Arizona, they were going after police again:

A group of anti-Trump demonstrators used gas canisters, rocks and bottles to assault police Tuesday night and create havoc at what officials said was mostly a peaceful protest in Phoenix.

Video captured by a local reporter also shows a smoking object being thrown at police while hundreds of officers attempted to keep order at a rally after President Trump’s speech at the Phoenix Convention Center had ended.

Targeting police might be popular with the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat party, but swing voters who don’t like their car windows smashed or their small business vandalized might not be all that anxious to vote for a party whose foot soldiers are masked and whose violence the media is defending them and calling em peace activists.

And even if you accept that the violence was from a comparatively small part of the crowd in Boston, the chants calling the USA racist and fascists were not.

Yeah that will get you those votes you need to flip back swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Iowa.

And while you aren’t seeing the MSM play any of those chants trust me, videos like that one are being shared all over facebook and the fact that they can be seen on facebook and not on ABC/NBC/CBS/MSNBC or CNN will simply confirm the President’s charge that the MSM have been conveyors of fake news all along.

The events of Boston and Phoenix might make folks in blue states and a media obsessed with statues and millionaire footballs players without seven figure paychecks feel good about themselves

But the reality is those events are walking talking Trump 2020 ads that are going to coin votes for him in every swing state that the left has to win back if they are going to beat him next time around.

Now of course it’s possible that Donald Trump might decide that as much fun as it is to bait the left and the Establishment GOP he’d much rather go back to his old life.

But if he decides to run for re-election, in my opinion, the events of Boston and Phoenix have already done the job.

Useful idiots indeed.

Minions 2015

Now that hopeful spin for the left for an upset in Kansas were proven baseless,  Democrats having no bench and still smarting from Hillary’s defeat have decided to learn the exact wrong lesson from the election of Donald Trump.

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she has been asked by top Democrats to run for office.

The star of “Veep” responded that it will never happen, according to the Washington Post.

Because nothing says “winning” like reviving the old “I’m not a doctor but I play one on TV meme:

In fact the New Republic has been all aboard the celebrity express for a bit:

Democrats would do well to embrace her and fellow Hollywood stars. The party could recruit Streep and others to bait Trump, and perhaps, as Moore suggested, groom some to be presidential candidates. In 2020, the Democrats could run Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Beyonce, Matt Damon, or Rosie O’Donnell. Some might guffaw at this idea. After all, wouldn’t running a celebrity candidate further associate Democrats with coastal elitism? But Democrats’ main problem last year wasn’t in appealing to anti-elitist voters; it was in getting out the party’s base. A magnetic, attractive movie star would have a far better chance of accomplishing that than just another accomplished, dowdy politician.

Of course Trump one advantage that a lot of celebs did not. He actually had decades of running a business empire before he ever appeared on TV and while his celebrity certainly helped in terms of bypassing the media (something a liberal celeb doesn’t need to do)and establishing a persona (which was no different than his existing reputation) based on the interviews I did during the primaries of voters, it wasn’t his celebrity that put him over the top as much as the combination of his business experience and his willingness to say bluntly things people were afraid to.

Of course a celebrity candidate might energize low information voters on the left and if the Democrats want to run someone who will just be a figurehead for the deep state they’re welcome to do so, but I suspect even with yesterday’s defeat in Kansas in a race against a weak opponent after 90 continuous days of attacks on both the GOP and the President, they haven’t quite reached the point where they go with a King Bob slate.

Even if he does give one hell of a speech.
