20200219: MAGA/KAG Rally Thread, Phoenix AZ.

Three MAGA rallies this week? You guys ready to roll? Gas up the bus, and make some snacks. We’re headed out west to protect the 2016 map of wins and expand upon them. But there is MOAR going on than just the MAGA rallies, and we need to understand the schedule to all be on the same page. Rallies are highlighted in bold. Let’s try to keep up with our President.

  • President leaves Tuesday for a fundraiser in Rancho Mirage, California at Larry Ellison’s house. It’s a big deal. Expected to raise about 10 million dollars.
  • Phoenix, AZ Wed, February 19, 2020 07:00 pm (MST)
  • President flies back to Vegas to spend the night.
  • Thursday Morning, President attends Graduation Ceremony for Prisoners in Vegas, signature program. If he can actually reduce the recidivism rate, it would be a major accomplishment.
  • President flies to Colorado Springs for rally.
  • Colorado Springs, CO Thu, February 20, 2020 05:00 pm (MST)
  • President flies back to Vegas to spend the night.
  • Las Vegas, NV Fri, February 21, 2020 12:00 pm (PST)
  • VP Pence gives a rally in Reno, 1:15pm.
  • Fly back to DC or to Mar-A-Lago? Is Baron on spring break? Melania did not come back to the WH with President after the Daytona 500. Maybe they are still in Florida? No….. if you thought we were done, you were WRONG.
  • After speaking at three rallies in three days in three states, with attending a California fundraiser and Las Vegas graduation speech, Trump will have one day to rest up before he heads to India for a two-day visit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. (and Melania is going to India with him)

Each rally the President has includes data for about 25% of attendees WHO ARE Dem! In New Hampshire, we gained data on 17% of those who didn’t even vote in 2016 (17% of 70K who registered is enough to swing an election in New Hampshire). Besides, it’s good to have a Presidential rally in the Dems back yard……. it demoralizes the political opposition’s campaign staff. A MAGA rally is impossible to ignore and counteracts the local press gained by the Dems.

Traveling and campaigning will make our President stronger. He does love to be outside of DC, in the middle of America, where the beauty of the land is inescapable and humbles a simple man.

Let’s get oriented with a map of Arizona. This should help those of us east of the Mississippi.

It’s also important to understand the geography of AZ as mother nature provides her own photographic regions.

According to Wiki: “Phoenix is the capital and most populous city in Arizona, with 1,660,272 people (as of 2018). It is also the fifth most populous city in the United States” The metro area is…. ” 11th largest by population in the United States, with approximately 4.73 million people as of 2017.[7] ” I had no idea Phoenix was so big. Did you?

Continuing from Wiki: Phoenix was settled in 1867 as an agricultural community near the confluence of the Salt and Gila Rivers and was incorporated as a city in 1881. It became the capital of Arizona Territory in 1889.[9] It is in the northeastern reaches of the Sonoran Desert and has a hot desert climate.[10][11] Despite this, its canal system led to a thriving farming community with the original settler’s crops remaining important parts of the Phoenix economy for decades, such as alfalfa, cotton, citrus, and hay.[12][13] Cotton, cattle, citrus, climate, and copper were known locally as the “Five C’s” anchoring Phoenix’s economy. These remained the driving forces of the city until after World War II, when high-tech companies began to move into the valley and air conditioning made Phoenix’s hot summers more bearable.[14]

Of course, President Trump has been to Phoenix to campaign in the past. After all, this is Maricopa County…. home to Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

These early rallies are also a strategic move to line the campaign coffers for Senators and House seats in 2020. The extra dollars allow campaigns to book TV time earlier and at cheaper rates, and plan long term for the final push of October. Let’s give Trump a little boost, and if you can, make the $3-10 donations for select Senate/House seats. We need to be smart with our donations this year. For example, $100 spread among the Repub candidates who are running against the “Dirty 30” will help to flip the House back to our control. Plus, Repubs have far more Senators running than the Dems and we know the Dems are targeting the Senate. We must protect the Senate for judges and treaties. Expect the focus of the AZ rally to be on Martha McSally and keeping AZ a red state for 2020.

Remember when we were rather indifferent on Martha McSally? And then, in the midst of ShaMMMpeachment, she called Manu Raju of CNN “You’re a liberal hack” and refused to answer his questions? We nodded, slowly, …… new found respect for McSally. The media had a meltdown. The press corps demanded she apologize….. as if a US Senator is obligated to answer questions on the time schedule for CNN…….. McSally refused to apologize, stood defiant……… and her campaign sold t-shirts. Frankly, if McSally ran on a platform admonishing the MSM, she would probably win in a landslide.

Students for Trump are ready in AZ and have more college chapters than Bernie/AOC across the country. They had a BIG turnout for their 2nd Amendment rally and work all year long registering people to vote. Great young people and give us hope for the future.

Of course, if we think of Phoenix, we think of Glen Campbell’s lost love.

If you’re in Phoenix, check out Rusconi’s American Kitchen. It’s ranked as one of the best restaurants in the area, and they have a split filet which is to-die-for, and things like mac and cheese with green chilis.

On our way north to Colorado, for tomorrow’s rally, we’re going to stop….. at the Grand Canyon. There is so much to explore in America.

We could stay here for a very long time. To heck with DC.

Don’t oversleep and miss the bus in the morning! We’re busy Trump Supporters this week!

  6. Someone interrupting Biden’s closing
    cheering going on
    no idea what they are saying

    His dad lost his job little ability, knocked down a whole lot, have to provide safety and security, amoral guns, healthcare is a right, expand obamacare, immigration, send it to me, says Bernie voted against it and 6 million would be citizens if bernie had voted for it.

    Bernie thinks Trump is dangerous. Bernie;s comments are focused on hating those of whom you are jealous.

  7. Pundits are mad on MSDNC because we didn’t talk about how much we hate Donald Trump.
    Bwwhahahaaaa,
    says Trump is on a pardon-paloozza and may pardon Stone.

    Bloomberg stumbled, very bad for him. Have to double the salaries of his staff because I woudl not want to go into the spin room and defend him.
    He could no answer questions which should have been easy about sexual harassment (said they signed NDAs and consensually did so)
    OMG.

        1. I’ve wondered if Bloomberg agreed to get in the race to take Bernie out. If that was the plan, it was a major miscalculation. We already knew about Bernie’s socialist/communist past, but Bloomberg’s skeletons are just starting to be revealed. And he has no charisma. And he comes across as an east coast elitist, misogynistic, anti-family jerk. So he has that going for him. 😂

    1. “The claws are out…” I’ve been waiting for this to happen; it had to because in a competition, you have to take the other guys out. It’s what then-candidate Trump did to his competitors, too. But it’s so fun to watch the Dems finally admit some of the things we’ve been saying about them for years.

      1. Yes it’s been a long time since I dug into Leo Strauss but my takeaway was that the Neocons were never truly conservative. They were Platonic in their philosophy, a kind of revival of classicalism, as opposed to others like your Popper’s and whatnot. Plato is a very elitist philosopher.

        From the Wikipediaz with my formatting and comments (reasonably good assessment): ( *https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoconservatism )

        Irving Kristol remarked that a neoconservative is a “liberal mugged by reality“, one who became more conservative after seeing the results of liberal policies.
        [They were LIBERAL, and still are LIBERAL – they have been schooled by realism but have not lost their liberal idealism. This is the key to understanding their rabid never-Trumperism and continual push for policies that don’t align with conservatives. Political Realism is a key advantage of Neoconservatism over straight Leftism, but it is not conservative.]

        Kristol also distinguished three specific aspects of neoconservatism from previous types of conservatism:

        neo-conservatives had a forward-looking attitude from their liberal heritage, rather than the reactionary and dour attitude of previous conservatives
        [Note the dripping elitism here. They chose to remake conservative in their own liberal image.]

        they had a meliorative attitude, proposing alternate reforms rather than simply attacking social liberal reforms
        [This posture toward alternate reforms made them very susceptible to leftist radicalism on domestic policy. They were still grounded in a good ole American Pragmatism but were still 100% on board with a lot of leftist utopian dreaming. Domestic policy was not their strong point. This made them extremely manipulable by the left.]

        and they took philosophical ideas and ideologies very seriously.
        [Sorry, “take them seriously” is one of those red flag phrases I watch out for. It’s usually an indicator of elitism or dismissiveness of one’s intellectual/political rivals. In context, however, the left typically does not engage deeply in the intellectual/philosophical battle. The Right Intellectuals and the Left Radicals can’t damage each other because their weapons are dimensionally orthogonal to each other. But the Neocons did have a grasp of history and philosophy that the left had long developed a distaste for. Despite, of course, the Neocon’s being often wrong in their understanding of history and philosophy.]

    1. This would explain Kristol trying to FAKE HARDER as conservative / “celebrate” Dem debacle.

      Phony kiss-and-make-up with Trump in 3…2…1…

      Seriously, his Trotsky/CIA game has been busted. What’s he gonna do? FAKE BACK TO COVER.

  11. I can’t help but wonder if Bloomburg got in to help Trump??? Cause he is doing great. He is guilty of every single thing they have accused Trump of….

    Taxes….hasn’t released
    Womanizing…..66 NDA’s
    Racist…..yep. Stop & frisk
    Homophobic….check. “It in a dress”

    The hypocrisy could not be more crystal clear, yet they will continue to push him.

        1. Speaking of which, T had posted something a while back about coconut flour. Coconut flour is coconut meat after removing oil and fluid, then ground. It is very close to sawdust. But it is a food-grade, micronutrient-dense, nontoxic, powdery sawdust.

          The easiest way to render it somewhat palatable is to cut it with a significant amount of butter. This replaces the coconut milk in the original. While I can’t imagine making coconut flour biscuits, I could see cutting it in to a variety of dishes as an experiment. For example, you might sub it in for 1/3 the flour for croissants, and double the butter. Since there’d be less gluten to keep the layers together, this might be fluffier and more buttery than standard croissants. Or not.
