I’m typing this at 9:27 PM Tuesday as I have to leave for work in 30 min, as of this moment I think it looks REALLY good for Donald Trump and if he did in fact win (and the lack of CNN projections in key states tells me he will) this is the reason why. My friend Jim, a 60 something Irishman, asked me to take him to vote. He is a two-time cancer survivor, has problems with his spine, fractured both feet two weeks ago, s waiting for six operations to help him walk properly and is in constant pain. I got to his place at 8:45 AM. It took him an hour to get dressed, a solid 10-12 minutes to hobble on his crutches to my car, over 30 minutes to go into the polling place and vote and another 10 minutes to hobble up the stairs back to his apartment and practically throw himself back onto his bed at 10:45 (after a bank trip too) in incredible pain. He did so to vote for Donald Trump in Massachusetts a state where the presidential race was not even remotely in doubt. I have a feeling this kind of thing has been repeated all over the country. If I’m right and Trump has won this election he owes people like my friend Jim a lot of thanks and also an obligation to deliver for his sake.
Four years later my friend Jim is in a Nursing home but the Army of Jim’s has grown and is not only dying to vote for Donald Trump for coming through for them, they are dying to take their vengeance on a media that has done all it can to defame Trump, deflect critique of Democrats in general and Biden in particular and deceive them as to the state of the country and the election.
In the end their efforts will be for naught. Donald Trump will win a 2nd term today because his first term has been the most successful of a president since James Knox Polk (1845-1849) but it’s also fair to say the media by their continual & unending attempt to destroy him has been the only group anywhere near as effective in assuring President Trump’s re-election as he was.
One the election is officially over I’ll go into some detail on this, perhaps on the Friday Podcast.
