Rasmussen's daily poll

punchy has promised us that approval polls aren't interesting anymore, but I suspect that's mostly because they aren't cooperating.

‘Restaurant Servers in Maine Ordered to Wear Dog 'Cones of Shame' While Serving Food’

Most of the updates are just a few additions or clarifications to previously released checklists.

“For example, front-of-house staff in restaurants who choose to wear face shields must now wear them upside down so that they are attached at the collar instead of the forehead, so that their breath is directed up, not down.

To be clear, servers can wear suffocating masks in a hot kitchen or they can wear cones of shame.”

Here’s a link to my sentiment numbers.

“The CBS/YouGov battleground tracker revealed on Sunday that Biden was 10 points ahead of Donald Trump. This is seemingly good news for Democrats, until you realize the number remains unchanged following the Harris VP announcement and the entire Democratic National Convention.

Getting no boost after a convention has happened only a few times in modern Democrat Party history. By John Kerry in 2004 and George McGovern in 1972.

Kerry ended up losing to George W. Bush and McGovern got thrashed by Nixon in an historic landslide beaten only in scale by Presidents FDR and Ronald Reagan.

In Republican terms, Mitt Romney saw no bump after his 2012 convention. He went on to lose to incumbent President Barack Obama.”

Trump Jr. calls Biden "the Loch Ness Monster of the Swamp."

"For the past half-century, he’s been lurking around in there. He sticks his head up every now and then to run for President, then he disappears and doesn’t do much in between," he says.

He previously dubbed him "Beijing Biden" for being the favored candidate of China.

Trump caused the riots, lol.

"But the Democratic Party has moved leftward on these questions. It was less than six years ago that Barack Obama made a point of stating that he had “no sympathy at all” for rioters in Ferguson, Missouri, sending 1,500 National Guard troops into the state to enforce a curfew in response to the violence that erupted after the death of Michael Brown at the hands of a local police officer. Then, as now, Obama’s sentiment reflects the views of a bipartisan majority. Yet today, the Democrats are too beholden to their activist base to give voice to such commonsense opinions.

If our national press were interested in upholding its nominally nonpartisan commitments, reporters would be pressing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to state their position on the disaster in Portland. Don’t hold your breath."

quote o' the day.

“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

So Trump believes there is no possibility the American people will select Biden for President when he said on Sunday 'The only way we're going to lose this election is if the election is rigged'

This paves the way for whatever means he decides to deploy to overturn the election and stay in power despite the vote.

Common attributes of those in these pages who don't support violent protests are 1) continually recognize their existence, 2) identify the instigators and dun them, and 3) propose better response policies. Those who do support the ongoing violent protests can be expected to remain silent on the aforementioned. ALL of our liberal readers qualify as presumed supporters of violence (and blame it on Trump). Thoughts?

" Perfectly adequate for someone at his level of activism."

Oddly enough, the IMF claims that Canada will have a larger drop in GDP than the US.

That Trump must be a busy guy.

Truth is, the KVMR news team is allies of a group which will say whatever it takes, do whatever it takes, think whatever it takes to achieve a greater degree of power. A single party state in California is insufficient. The tech surveillance monopolies, MSM, schools, bureaucracy aren't enough. Traditional America needs more crushing than that.

The Dalrymple quote again:

“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.

The masters of the universe still have a thumb on the scale -

Amazon Prime Video live streamed all four nights of the DNC last week but did not offer a live stream of the RNC on Monday night, according to Breitbart News.

The article read:

Searching for RNC coverage on Amazon also proved to be more difficult than searching for DNC footage. A search for the term “DNC” brought up Amazon’s livestreams from all four days of the Democratic National Convention last week, while an “RNC” search failed to return anything related to Monday’s convention.

Amazon users had to search the term “Republican National Convention” to find any RNC-related content, the report stated.

Predictable response from George on the economy and Trumps Presidency. According to George and the other RR's Bush had nothing to do with the Great Recession and Hoover and Harding had nothing to do with the Great Depression.

re: 25aug20 update] “America will suffer its greatest assault on religious institutions after a Biden victory according to the policy platform laid out by the Democrats.”

Man, ain’t that the truth. One can present volumes of supporting evidence on that very issue, or one needs to look no farther than the C-19 contact tracers in NY and the Blue East Coast. A contact tracer is NOT allowed to ask the exposed to the virus person if they had been to a riot, demonstration, or protest or large outdoor gathering. They are instructed to ask if the person had been to a church or synagogue. Rioting and mass demonstrations taboo to ask, religious services must ask about.

Shortly after midnight, a group of demonstrators got in their cars and traveled to a residential neighborhood where they parked in a grassy area across from a row of houses. As they began exiting their vehicles, a homeowner emerged from his house and began firing warning shots at the rioters.

The would-be rioters began to flee as the man fired several more shots. In another incident, a group of rioters attacked and burned several local businesses in an area near a residential neighborhood. As the rioters moved through the area, several shots rang out from a man who appeared to be a business owner.

As far as George or anyone here claiming that Bush "had nothing to do with the Great Recession..."

——————————————————————————
And to dovetail with the Left’s darkness, here are daily quotes from Year Zero:

Political futures: “Ronald Reagan used to say America’s best days were ahead. Republicans should say if the Biden/Harris/Sanders/Ocasio-Cortez gang assumes power, they will transform America into the darkness they now falsely claim envelops us. If they win, their pessimistic rhetoric will become all too real.” —Cal Thomas

Upright: “We value and respect every black life. The black cops who have been shot in the line of duty, they matter. The black small business owners who have watched their life’s work go up in flames, they matter. The black kids who’ve been gunned down on the playground, their lives matter too. And their lives are being ruined and stolen by the violence on our streets.” —Nikki Haley

For the record I: “Democrats refuse to denounce the mob. And their response to the chaos? Defund the police, defund Border Patrol, and defund our military. And while they’re doing all this, they’re also trying to take away your guns. Look at the positions they’ve taken the past few months: Democrats won’t let you go to church, but they’ll let you protest. Democrats won’t let you go to work, but they’ll let you riot. Democrats won’t let you go to school, but they’ll let you go loot.” —Rep. Jim Jordan

For the record II: “It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people called Donald. The worst one is ‘racist.’ I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist. People that think that don’t know what they’re talking about. Growing up in the Deep South, I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump.” —Herschel Walker

For the record III: “If you want to take a look at Joe Biden’s America, take a look at Portland … where they had a riot. Take a look at the woman who punches the other woman in church… Take a look at the 51 shootings in New York and the four murders — that’s all happening under Democrat mayors who actually now do nothing about it.” —Rudy Giuliani

Birds of a feather: “If you look at Joe Biden’s goals and Bernie Sanders’s goals, they’re not that different from a 40,000-foot level.” —Barack Obama

Braying jackass: “The Russians were there and they are there now 24/7 trying to interfere in our election, but they’re not the only ones. We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and our honoring of the Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.” —Nancy Pelosi

And last… “Comparing the [Donald Trump] economic agenda with the [Joe Biden] plan is like comparing the moon landing with the Hindenburg.” —Stephen Moore

Paul Emery

We had an extensive discussion on the topic of the Great depression a few weeks ago and in no way did you attribute any responsibility to Hoover or Harding instead you deflected to Roosevelt who became President after the Stock Market Crash and the Depression that followed. . Gregory went so far back blaming it on Wilson. Also the 'recession was the fault of the Dems according to the RR's not the Repubs. That has been expressed over and over. Fact is that Trump showed poor leadership in the Covid situation that contributed to the crisis. It was all going away like "poof" he said over and over. He said it was a war and as commander and Chief he failed in his leadership.

What happened to make the interval last oh so much longer!

And hey...thanks for agreeing with me!

Scott O

Paul - Can you read? Harding died in 1923. FDR was not president after the Great Depression, he was president for most of the great depression. According to FDR's own Sec of the Treasury 1939:
"We have tried spending money. We are spending more money than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just none interest, and if I am wrong . . . somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job, I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. . . . I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started . . . . And an enormous debt to boot!"

Please tell us what Trump should have done, that was within his legal authority to do based on what YOU knew about CV19 back in January. If you can't then I would suggest you cease to comment on the subject.

paul emery

Scott

The Depression happened under Hoover and FDR inherited it much like Obama inherited but did not create the Great Recession.

It was Trumps job as Commander in Chief of the "war", as he put it, and he failed in his leadership. It is his job not mine to come up with solutions. Over 175,000 and climbing deaths, more than WW1, is his legacy. Instead he claims victory and the RR's agree with him.

Now they cry, “Ratchet down the rhetoric!” No wonder Punchy vowed to never vote for a major party canidate for Prez again. If he does, does that make him a l-i-a-r or not?

I wonder if that Arizona woman’s daddy was the poor sap who drank fish tank cleaner.

No one is buying what they are selling -

A convention is supposed to boost its party in the polls. So far in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll, it’s Trump who surged during the Democratic convention. Maybe that’ll change with later polls, but it’s not a good sign. Measures of social media engagement found that the vast bulk of attention went to Michelle and Barack Obama. Biden came in a distant third, and — despite her “historic” selection — Harris barely registered.

Paul 1:38 - Sorry I can't keep up with Paul's ever-changing choice of words. When challenged on his historical F'ups he simply ignores it or tries to cover up his mistake with a new claim.
As far as Trump "...he failed in his leadership."
How would you know Paul? You admit you have no clue.
All the world has been hammered with the Wuhan Flu, Trump didn't start it and it certainly isn't his fault. If you can't point out a better course of action than the one Trump took, then you have absolutely no way to know if he actually did as well as anyone could have.
He certainly has done better than Biden would have and better than what the Dems wanted. We know that for a fact.

George Rebane

Regarding America's fortune's and public policies and who caused what, it is futile to talk to any liberal (including Paul) about leadership and political responsibility. Their simplistic answer is always that the whole thing was caused by the president in office, except when things got worse or didn't improve or ... under a Democrat. Then it was the Republican who came before or followed who gets the blame. The disastrously ineffective roles of FDR during the Depression or Obama's during the Recession are neither in their history nor lexicon - it was all Hoover and Bush2, and that's that.

scenes

"Their simplistic answer is always that the whole thing was caused by the president in office,..."

or simply the President's political party, without a bit of knowledge about the times or the people involved.

The basic problem isn't that it's a poor argument, and a common staple of precocious kid arguments, but that a child-man is driving the conversation. It would be interesting to think about the causes of the Great Depression, I've fairly sparse knowledge on that. I'd probably need to start with actually understanding the facts on the ground a bit rather than worrying too much about economist-generated word salad.

A rather artistic video:

I have a feeling that without these independent guys on twitter/facebook/etc. few people would know what is going on. It may well be that independent journalism will be kicked off of those platforms, it's Year Zero after all.

....as a side note, I did read Shlaes' book on the Depression (before someone suggests it), but remember it being a little light on an overview. It was never intended to do that of course.

paul emery

It was under Hoover and Bush 2 that the Depression and the Great Recession happened George. How the Dems picked up the pieces and carried on is another story completely. Just like when Biden has to pick up the pieces after Trump is out office.

Trump himself said this is a War and the President is Commander in Chief. Are you satisfied how our Commander in Chief fought this "was", as Trump describes it?

paul emery

Nothing new here Gregory. Biden still up by 97 in RCP's delegate numbers. No bump after his financial plan a couple weeks ago. Trump has to win 75% of the toss-ups to pull this off.

Hey look a unicorn from a fakenewsman -

CNN’s Jake Tapper offered a rare on-air correction Tuesday of an erroneous statement he made the night before, claiming that Donald J. Trump Jr. had defended Confederate statues in his speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC).

As Breitbart News noted in a fact check, Don Jr. “specifically defended the ‘Founders’ and defended ‘monuments’ in general, not Confederate ones”

Makes sense. Basically you have two choices in Sandersworld. Cops do nothing, cops use lethal force.
