Trump Standout Townsend MA 9-9-20

On Wednesday I covered and participated in a standout for Donald Trump in Townsend MA organized by the Fitchburg Republican Committee.

I got there with my ride about 11:50 and people kept trickling in till the crowd grew to twenty by about 12:15.

There was an assortment of signs that people had for my money this one would have the broadest appeal as you have to go back to Polk to find a President who has kept a higher percentage of promises than Donald Trump.

As you might guess the pro-life movement was represented, I recognized several people that I had seen at protests in front of Planned Parenthood in Fitchburg before the abortion provider left the town (you have no idea how wonderful it is to type that sentence).

This woman had three signs two as you can see were explicitly pro-life

And the third sign was a sentiment that I suspect is going to be a huge winner for the GOP and an even bigger disaster for the left in this election.

I can’t imagine what the left was thinking when they decided to hand this issue and police unions endorsements to the president, unless they are just afraid of their own base.

It would be bold to predict this will elect O’Conner to the US senate, particularly since MA has been spared BLM violence (Well done Gov Baker) but given Ed Markey link to the Democrats AOC wing it certainly can’t hurt his chances.

As I noted the event was organized by the Fitchburg GOP committee. Mary Lotze was in charge and I spoke to her as things began.

As you can hear there were a fair amount of horns, the standout seemed particularly popular with drivers of 18 wheeler and large trucks with heavy equipment with a single exception where a driver made it a point to spit in their direction (I should stress not at anyone). Oddly enough just about every car that had a dog in it also seemed to be with them. Here is a wide shot of the crowd.

There was a person or two across the street as well to the left in this picture

This is a very well traveled intersection as it intersects three roads to and from NH including the route to Nashua and Manchester so getting a long shot from across the street was a bit of a pain.

While nobody is expecting Trump to win Massachusetts as I said three roads at this intersection lead to NH so that might help a bit, additionally recalling the 2010 election when Massachusetts was heavily contested it caused Democrat resources to be used here.

They did a later standout that day in Leominster MA as well but it was during my work hours. This standout will be repeated Wednesdays till election day.

Are these basically flies irritating the Massachusetts Donkey, perhaps, but it is from these efforts that you build a party and a campaign in a state.

Remember the Tea Party Non Riots, The last Straw in SF? History repeating itself, Eucharistic Processions on Oct 17th Please, and How Bad is the Trump Economy? VERY quick thoughts under the fedora

Overslept today after putting in some extra time at work and I have to go in early today as well so no time to post so here are some very quick thoughts.


A Quick reminder, remember when the media was united in declaring the Tea Party and the various Tea Party protest a bunch dangerous violent agitators?

You can count the number of Tea Party events over the year that became riots d on the fingers of one hand, in fact you can likely do so on the thumb of one hand or no hands


I think the Nancy Pelosi Salon story combined with the news concerning city gyms in SF offer the best single chance for her GOP challenger in decades.

People don’t like be played for fools and even leftists know that if they punish her on election day they’ll get the seat back fairly quick.


When I was younger I was always amazed at the rise of the Nazi’s in Germany and the Communists in Russia (although less so the latter given serfdom and the Czars). After watching the left over the last several months and the reaction of the public I am much less amazed.

The smartest thing our enemies ever did was to go after our colleges. People are so much easier to buy.


If I was the Pope I would order a coordinated set of Eucharistic Processions led by the local Bishops or Cardinals of sees in October in Reparation for sins. I’d Choose Saturday October 17 the feast day of St. Ignatius.

Either we believe in the Power of Christ in the Eucharist or we don’t, if we do let’s not be shy about it.


Finally a reminder that tomorrow’s Podcast will be at 11 AM rather than at 3 PM.

This is because the Trump Economy is so bad that I have to work on my day off along with going in early yesterday and today to keep up with all the work we don’t have because the Trump economy is so bad

DaTechGuy off DaRadio 3:00 PM EST The Rittenhouse Method of not getting shot by Police Edition (Plus Joke Biden)

Today on DaTechGuy off DaRadio we’re going to talk about the death of Michael Forest Reinoehl at the hands of Federal agents trying to arrest him and how the Rittenhouse MethodTM of responding to police would have saved his life.

We’ll also talk a bit about Joe Joke Biden and his failing follow the leader campaign.

You can watch it all live here starting at 3 PM (last weeks show is a placeholder in the post)

Hope you enjoy it.

Five One Liners Under Other People’s Fedoras Kurt Schlichter, Don Surber, Right Wing Granny, Victory Girls Blog and Baldilocks and one from me.

Michael Forest Reinoehl has now proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that when wanted for crimes of violence or any other the Rittenhouse methodTM of not getting shot by police is the way to go.


Let’s put the awkward issues of logistics aside and talk tactics, though professionals always think logistics while amateurs only think tactics.

Via Town Hall

As a general rule you should always read Kurt Schlichter, he’s smart, he’s funny, and he tears apart the left but this is the most informative piece he’s ever written


FINALLY, a reader emailed, “Hi Don. A few weeks ago I realized that BLM stands for Bitter Little Marxists

Via Don Surber

Analysis True.


 NFL shouldn’t be propping up a criminal rapist when the organization itself has a domestic violence problem.

Via Victory Girls Blog

Actually given the criminal and domestic violence history in the NFL it’s actually pretty on brand.


 Voters should not be deprived of their constitutional right to vote nor should their vote be cancelled by an illegally cast vote.

Via Right Wing Granny

Since the day after the election of 2016 I’ve been saying Trump needs to go after voter fraud.


Can anyone deny that all the terrible things we’ve seen this year have supernatural sources? Well, I suppose they could, but I adamantly disagree.

Via Baldilocks

I think the Democrat/Antifa/Media Marxist left aren’t the real enemy, they just work for him.

Five Simple 2+2=5 Questions for Biden Voters of the Left (and one Insurance question)

I noticed this post at Stacy McCain’s site about a big time liberal Bernie Socialist voter who works in a Nursing Home in NY and is both:

  1. Angry at the democrats for the Biden/Harris Ticket as not radical enough
  2. Angry at Andrew Cuomo over his Covid response.

That reminded me of the axiom that people are always conservative about things that pertain to them. For example the elites of the left champion public schools and deride charter schools, while making sure their kids aren’t anywhere near them.

So it hit me that the best way to explain to a woke Biden voter that all of this 2+2=5 stuff that will continue to be pushed if he is elected is dangerous is to give them real life examples of where that comes into play.

So let me ask you, oh Biden/Bernie voter these questions:

  • Will you feel comfortable having your breaks fixed by a mechanic who has been taught that hydraulic force manipulation is racist western concept?
  • Will you feel comfortable getting a prescription for your medication if the person determining your dosage has been taught that 2+2=4 is a racist western concept?
  • Will you feel comfortable getting a replacement heart valve designed by someone taught that 2+2=4 is a racist western concept or put in by a surgeon who has been taught the same?

Finally:

  • If you were an insurance company would you insure any of the people or devices unless there was a clause voiding coverage if any of them worked under the assumptions taught that I listed above. I’ve listed above?

When you choose to vote Biden and surrender in the culture wars to the radical left that now runs our universities, this is what you are voting for.

A lot of people think the riots are the most dangerous thing that the Democrats are pushing but those can be beaten back, but if you lose the basic building blocks of science and engineering, your society never progresses again.

It’s your choice but if you’re going to make choice, do it with your eyes wide open.

Closing thought: I submit and suggest if we had people teaching this at the time of the creation of the TVA we would not have the Raccoon Lake Battery today:

Raccoon Mountain Lake is not your typical Tennessee Valley Authority lake. Carved out of the top of a mountain just west of Chattanooga, its purpose is to store excess energy produced by the TVA when it is generating more hydro and nuclear electricity than is being consumed. The excess energy is used to pump water uphill from the Tennessee River. During periods of peak demand, the water is sent back down, running 1,080 feet through a tunnel in the mountain and generating electricity as it returns to the river. In effect, the lake is a battery. It can generate 1.6 million kw hours of electricity per day. Here’s a time-lapse video of it filling back up after being emptied to generate electricity.

IF I WERE THE GOP, I’D JUST RUN CLIPS OF THE DNC DURING THE RNC:

Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit:

Nothing hurts the Democrats more than people seeing them as they are


Sudan (and the other Arab countries) have to make a choice–do they want to submit to Iran or make peace with Israel and remain as independent countries? 

From Right Wing Granny:

The very idea that Sudan is even considering peace with Israel is completely surreal.


But instead of watching sports in June and July, TV viewers watched Fox News.

From Fisherville Mike

I can’t wait till the next round of negotiations for TV contracts for the four major sports takes place.


This is not how we’re supposed to live.

From Adrienne’s Corner

The more I’ve seen of Americans submitting to the mask lie the less I’ve been confused as to how people fell for Communism and Fascism in the 20th century.


It’s not racist to insist that everyone learn to use the same language, it is racist to say that one group doesn’t have the brains to learn the same language as everyone else.

From The Lid

I’m old enough to remember when it was only white supremacists who insisted Black Americans were incapable of achieving at the level of others.

CNN Polls, Obama statements, Millie Weaver meets Streisand , Manipulation, NBA Ratings, and liberal Suicide Under the Fedora

There is a big fuss about President Trump being only four points down on Biden in the latest CNN poll just before the Democrat convention.

Does it not occur to anyone that this is deliberate so that they can show a convention “bump” for Joe Biden at the end of the week?

After all, if we presume they are manipulating the polls why would they suddenly stop now?


Was slightly surprised to see Biden hit piece in Politico with a lot of stuff coming from Team Obama.

But the more I thought about it the less it was surprising. Biden is a losing candidate. This stuff coming out now is about Obama being able to say “well yeah I had to be pro-forma for Joe but I thought his nomination was a bad idea.”

This is about being able to make the case that when voters reject Biden they weren’t rejecting Obama’s 3rd term. I think that is the reason why Susan Rice wasn’t the VP pick. If she was on the ticket then it would be the Obama ticket.


I had never heard of Millie Weaver before Sunday Morning. When I heard about her arrest I followed a link and starting watching the shadowgate piece on youtube before I went to work.

When I got home it had been pulled for “hate speech” after over 1 million views. I did some searching and found it elsewhere and watched the rest before I hit the sack, still didn’t see any “hate speech” that Youtube cried.

This thing screams Streisand Effect and the idea that this arrest is over an old fight with her mom a few hours before her documentary was released is not credible.

If you want to see it the link to the video is here.


While I’m not watching any sports I have still been listening to sports radio stations when I am out. On Monday while running errands they were talking about the crashing ratings for the NBA.

It was hilarious to hear the excuses:

  • People got used to not watching
  • These games didn’t mean anything
  • It will change with the playoffs
  • etc etc etc…

The one thing that was never mentioned was going all in on BLM and social justice. That it was never brought up speaks volumes, apparently stating the obvious is completely VERBOTEN.


Finally the most amazing thing I’ve noticed lately is this entire COVID shutdown business, while designed to hurt Trump, has pretty much been liberal suicide.

Universities, Hollywood, public schools, Broadway, and big liberal cities are all falling apart while a good chunk of the rest of the country seems to be carrying on.

The number of liberal institutions that are crumbling under this is astounding. This deserves a longer post and I’ll likely write one later, but I’ll just note that if your goal was to destroy the infrastructure that supports Democrat memes and messages, I can’t see what you’d do differently

Another “Beware October” Piece

I noticed this at Don Surber’s spot on Sunday and thought it worth bringing up

I don’t think the people in the bubble really understand what this is doing to the voters because they dismiss all sources outside of the MSM.

However social media from facebook to twitter to parler to instagram means that these stories and sources get out to folks. They may not live politics but the see it and will act accordingly.

I told you about my liberal nephew in Minneapolis who on January 1st was a nevertrump Democrat who will be, as he put it, “crawling over broken glass in a mask to vote for him in November” after the riots. These people have friends and family all over the country who have been told of these riots.

I think that like John Stewart belatedly trying to rally the left in 2010 late October when the reality of the situation finally dawned on him, the Antifa / media / democrat left along with the Deep staters who have enabled them are going to figure this out at the last minute and realize that they are about to lose.

That’s when, like a rat in a corner they will become panicked and the most dangerous. A Trump victory means

  • Federal prosecutions of those already arrested will actually happen with a lot more to come.
  • Investigations actually started will progress from the phony Russia Probe to reviewing tapes of riots
  • Cities that enabled this stuff knowing they will not be bailed out if they back down will have to actually enforce the laws.
  • And companies intimidated by the woke mob who helped fund them will decide that they’d better get right with Trump while they still can

And that’s not even mentioning use of RICO statues to go after those folks and foundations that have been funding these riots directly which is going to be fueled by this:

In short once these folks realize all this is coming I expect one last violent outburst in an attempt to stop it.

It will be bad, very bad. In fact I would be shocked if it didn’t include at least one actual assassination attempt on the President with more to come after he wins both enabled by nevertrumpers still working in government worried about investigation.

I am hoping that I’m wrong about all of this (particularly the last because the violent backlash if it succeeds will be horrible, particularly for the left) but I suggest being ready in case I’m not.

Is John Podesta Wargaming Session “Confederate” Enough to Make My Point?

A couple of weeks back I wrote this piece noting how the Democrat leaders from Mayors to Governors to Party leaders like Pelosi on Portland were the same arguments being made by the defenders of Slavery prior to the civil war and the defenders of Jim Crow during the debate on the civil rights bill of 1957.

Now I’ll readily concede that given our current education system and the lack of interest in reading anything but Howard Zinn communist approved history some of these debates and arguments might not be familiar to the current Democrat Leadership like Nancy Pelosi or Democrat Mayors like Ted Wheeler or “Journalists” like Brian Stelter let alone the rank and file leftists/ Democrats posting on facebook or twitter.

But as someone who HAS read this stuff I find it incredibility interesting that the arguments of today’s Democrat left/media are the arguments of the slaveholder and the defenders of Jim Crow and are being made under the banner of Black Lives Matter.

That piece got me on Fault Lines Radio in DC and the host there, who in fairness gave me plenty of time to make my initial point, scoffed at my premise that this was a sign of Democrats talking like secessionists.

Then this story broke.

Now I want to note three things here that are vital:

  1. These people are actually war-gaming states threatening to secede from the Union in Trump is re-elected.
  2. The people doing this wargaming are top officials in the democrat party to wit
  3. The people telling us about this scenario is the Democrat Party’s newspaper of record the NYT

Here’s the full quote from the NYT

But conveniently, a group of former top government officials called the Transition Integrity Project actually gamed four possible scenarios, including one that doesn’t look that different from 2016: a big popular win for Mr. Biden, and a narrow electoral defeat, presumably reached after weeks of counting the votes in Pennsylvania. For their war game, they cast John Podesta, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in the role of Mr. Biden. They expected him, when the votes came in, to concede, just as Mrs. Clinton had.

But Mr. Podesta, playing Mr. Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.

In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned. The House named Mr. Biden president; the Senate and White House stuck with Mr. Trump. At that point in the scenario, the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do.

Note this isn’t some slub at a BLM rally or a local mayor or even some governor, this is JOHN F—ING PODESTA! The guy the Democrats sent out to the crowds to reassure them and send them home on election night because Hillary Clinton Couldn’t face them. He’s a power in the party and has been one of their biggest player for years.

And this guy representing a party supposedly outraged over statues of Confederate Generals and statesmen in the public square is actively wargaming blue Democrat states threatening to secede from the union if they don’t like election results?

Given this fact I think my comparison between the current Democrat leadership and the Democrats of 1860 is not only validated, but was on reflection apparently understated to the extreme.
