The Proposed TV Commercial That Guarantees Trump a Landslide Victory
This would be a funny as hell political advertsiement!

Quote:The TV commercial I envision starts with beautiful, precious little children running towards an ice cream truck — with their proud parents watching nearby. Everyone is happy, smiling, playing, dancing, dreaming of the delicious ice cream they are about to eat.

The parents watch their kids while they walk towards a McDonalds next to the ice cream truck.

Suddenly, the children are happy no more. They are hysterical, shocked, crying, screaming. They run back to mommy and daddy. They’ve been told, no more ice cream, ever. Because of the Green New Deal, Democrats have banned milk and killed all the cows… therefore no more ice cream. After all, cows fart.

The parents look dazed too. They’ve just found out they can never again eat burgers, or cheeseburgers, or hot dogs, ever. Democrats have killed the cows and banned meat.

Suddenly a dazed neighbor comes running onto the scene to report the town’s steakhouse has been shut down. He reports the owner has been arrested by the meat police.

The families race to the supermarket next door to find one last taste of cheese, butter, cream cheese, yogurt. But thanks to Democrats it’s all gone. The dairy row says, “Closed. Dairy is banned due to the Democrat Green New Deal.”

When they come out to their cars to leave...

Their cars are gone. Towed to scrap yard. Cars are now illegal. They run on filthy fossil fuel that has been banned by Democrats.

Cut to scene of the family arriving home on a donkey cart, burning candles to light their way. But their home is gone. In its place is a tent. The Green New Deal has knocked down all their homes. Everyone will live in tents until new energy-efficient homes can be built by robots.

The children are crying hysterically. The parents are shocked, dirty, and defeated.

The ad ends with this message…

“Vote for Trump and every GOP candidate up and down the ticket like your job, your income, your children’s future depends on it. Because it does...

It’s Trump, or the end of America and the great American middle class."

Quite perfect commercial, except I would add one detail to it:
When they come back home, their house has indeed been replaced by a tent, and inside, a family of 13 Haitians are living (on welfare). Plus, inside the tent, the viewer will notice huge posters of AOC and Kamala (with voodoos offerings at their feet). I would also add in the scene, sleepy-Joe Biden, frolicking inside the tent with the eleven undocumented kids.

Trump is going to win in 2020. Democrats are too divided both ideology and candidate wise, Trump has done a lot for businesses that nobody can claim "Obama's doing." and the outspoken democrats on social media are being assholes to everybody.

The democrats should really just take the L and think about 2024 since that's when the republicans will be weaker.

I'm sorry dude, but this is cringey as hell. "Vote Trump or they'll ban milk!" is not a winning political strategy.

But what about my "Vote God-Emperor or you'll get a bunch of undocumented Haitians living in a tent on welfare and crack (and voodoo), next door. Dodgy Plus Biden happily playing sniffey-touchey with their kids Confused ".

Might not be a winning marketing strategy, but come to think of it, it happens to be the truth. If the Biden-Kamala-AOC gang wins, it'd be a disaster of almost comical proportions, including totally open borders (not for Europeans though, mind you), and actual spirit cooking+voodoo (including Biden's low-intensity voodoo, which consists of sniffing hair and squeezing members).

Yes, yes, democrats are horrible and if Trump doesn't win the election the Earth will fall into the sun and we'll all die.

Be real nice if Trump felt that same sense of urgency, too.

He bought us at least 4 years to reverse the country's descent into socialist shithole.

I'm disappointed with him in some areas and pleased in others, but on net his presidency was a successful one the instant he won the election.

Are you serious? Is that really even a real question? I did not even vote for President Trump. It was the first time in my life that I did not vote for either candidate. I did not trust his very recent conservative credentials.

But he has accomplished more in two years than President Obama accomplished in eight years, including (as already noted) reversing the country's descent into socialism. His placing two jurists on the U.S. Supreme Court who believe in the original intent of the U.S. Constitution alone has done more good for the nation than President Obama accomplished in eight years.

Lest we forget, President Obama is the President who stood in front of the U.N. General Assembly and declared: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." Go ahead, Google it.

To answer your specific question: "What exactly did Trump achieve?" These are just the highlights. It does not include the many members of the Deep State who are now cowering in fear as they await the results of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's findings regarding misconduct throughout the DOJ, the FBI, and other Executive Branch departments, which is utterly priceless to our Constitutional Republic.

Are you serious? Is that really even a real question? I did not even vote for President Trump. It was the first time in my life that I did not vote for either candidate. I did not trust his very recent conservative credentials.

But he has accomplished more in two years than President Obama accomplished in eight years, including (as already noted) reversing the country's descent into socialism. His placing two jurists on the U.S. Supreme Court who believe in the original intent of the U.S. Constitution alone has done more good for the nation than President Obama accomplished in eight years.

Lest we forget, President Obama is the President who stood in front of the U.N. General Assembly and declared: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." Go ahead, Google it.

To answer your specific question: "What exactly did Trump achieve?" These are just the highlights. It does not include the many members of the Deep State who are now cowering in fear as they await the results of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's findings regarding misconduct throughout the DOJ, the FBI, and other Executive Branch departments, which is utterly priceless to our Constitutional Republic.

Exactly! I hate all the people who no longer support Trump because he's ignoring censorship. A lot of that is more nuanced and more congressional since they're the ones protecting the belief that Twitter and such are just abstract "private companies" where they're clearly need to be labeled a publisher or a platform. Either way we win since either one has limits on what the CEOs can control.

RE: The Proposed TV Commercial That Guarantees Trump a Landslide Victory
Trump's economic achievements are overblown, the unemployment figures are fudged, real unemployment is above 10%, and the jobs that have been created are lower-paying. He hasn't made much of a dent on illegal immigration, which means wage stagnation.

Male participation rate has been dropping, the official unemployment numbers hide this:

[Image: sgs-emp.gif?hl=ad&t=1556887813]

http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_dat...ent-charts

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archi...-recession

Quote:But overall, the truth is that the level of unemployment in this country is not that much different than it was during the last recession.

John Williams of shadowstats.com tracks what the real employment figure would be if honest numbers were being used, and according to him the real rate of unemployment in the United States at the moment is 21.2 percent.

That is down from where it was a few years ago, but not by that much.

Another “honest” indicator that I like to look at is the civilian labor force participation rate.

In essence, it tells us what percentage of the working age population is actually engaged in the labor force.

Just before the last recession, the civilian labor force participation rate was sitting at about 66 percent, and that was pretty good.

But then the recession hit, and the civilian labor force participation rate fell below 63 percent, and it stayed between 62 percent and 63 percent for an extended period of time.

So where are we today?

At this moment, we are sitting at just 63.0 percent.

Try Claiming America Is "Booming" After Reading These 19 Facts About Our Current Economic Performance

The following are 19 facts about our current economic performance that should deeply disturb all of us…

#1 In April, U.S. auto sales were down 6.1 percent. That was the worst decline in 8 years.

#2 The number of mortgage applications has fallen for four weeks in a row.

#3 We just witnessed the largest crash in luxury home sales in about 9 years.

#4 Existing home sales have now fallen for 13 months in a row.

#5 In March, total residential construction spending was down 8.4 percent from a year ago.

#6 U.S. manufacturing output was down 1.1 percent during the first quarter of this year.

#7 Farm incomes are falling at the fastest pace since 2016.

#8 Wisconsin dairy farmers are going bankrupt “in record numbers”.

#9 Apple iPhone sales are falling at a “record pace”.

#10 Facebook’s profits have declined for the first time since 2015.

#11 We just learned that CVS will be closing 46 stores.

#12 Office Depot has announced that they will be closing 50 locations.

#13 Overall, U.S. retailers have announced more than 6,000 store closings so far in 2019, and that means we have already surpassed the total for all of last year.

#14 A shocking new study has discovered that 137 million Americans have experienced “medical financial hardship in the past year”.

#15 Credit card charge-offs at U.S. banks have risen to the highest level in nearly 7 years.

RE: The Proposed TV Commercial That Guarantees Trump a Landslide Victory
...And I didn't even address the stuff from the quote above about Trump's "REBUILDING AMERICA'S MILITARY FORCE", as if nearly a trillion per year (if you include war provisions, intelligence agencies and black budgets) under Obama wasn't enough, or "RESTORING AMERICA'S LEADERSHIP ABROAD" with neocon interventionist crap policies that keep Israel's $6 trillion trough running at full blast, in a 180 degree switch from Trump's America First election promises.

You have to recognize that Trump's record at this point is a very mixed one. Some praises on his energy policy, TPP nixing and SCOTUS appointees, but it's far from the kind of blind worship some are still pushing here...

Who is pushing blind worship in this thread? I did not vote for President Trump, but even a half-assed track-record that preserves, and perhaps restores, our Constitutional Republic is still far superior than full-assed socialism.

From a personal perspective, President Trump really screwed me with the new tax plan and the elimination of tax-deferred retained earnings on offshore business income, but I look at the big picture. I would rather pay higher taxes in my own personal situation if it means preserving the Constitutional Republic, the Bill of Rights, and some semblance of fiscal sanity.

It was very obvious that President Obama was in way over his head and had very poor political instincts (not in terms of getting elected, but in regards to actually getting things done). As a result, the nation suffered. As a political novice, I expected the same from President Trump (similar to the fiasco in California with Arnold Schwarzenegger), but he has shown a rather surprising political deftness and an admirable drive towards accomplishment.

Obama was not much more than a figurehead, with limited power and influence. He's a 3rd generation deep state kid, groomed for this role because he's very slick, and can manipulate the masses to feel good about themselves with that fake MLK feel good vibe.

His mother worked for the deep state at the Ford Foundation, where her boss was Tim Geithner's father. Geithner was the guy who engineered the $9 trillion taxpayer money giveaway to the banksters, in what was the greatest money transfer in the history of mankind. So Obama wasn't way over his head, he knew exactly what he was doing, and is on his way to reaching 9 figure wealth, and we already have socialism for the oligarchs, subsidized by the middle classes. And it's not like Mnuchin or Wilbur Ross (both Rothschild people) who are going to change that...

I would not be shocked if all of that were true. The one thing that I know for a fact, because it is listed in campaign discosures: the largest contributor to President Obama's first campaign was Goldman Sachs.

I harp all the time about the Fed's artificially low interest rates that are subsidized by the middle class (i.e., transferring wealth from middle-class savers to the wealthiest asset-holders). So, we certainly agree there.

Honestly, if President Trump can just place two more originalists on the Supreme Court, he will accomplish more to change the nation for the better than any President within the last century. That is where Ronald Reagan failed: Justice Scalia was a stunning success; Justices O'Connor and Kennedy were failures (read the story about how Reagan promised his daughter that he would appoint the first woman Justice if she just shut up and left his campaign alone). If President Trump listens to the advice of the Federalist Society, he can cleanse the judiciary and change the nation for generations.

Precison: As horny schemer MLK himself was fake as a 3-dollar bill, Obama being a fake MLK feelgood, does not make Barry true. It makes him double-fake! Obama, the friendly 6-dollar bill con-artist.

GS, agree about MLK, that was a bit too much of a red pill to cram into a big red pill on Obama. Wink

This being said, MLK, to his credit, started veering off the official plot late in his life, and ended up paying the ultimate price for that, so RIP Marty...

Alrite, this one needs to be addressed. Can someone explain at what point during the last 20 years we were devolving into a socialist nightmare? I'd love to know. The "socialism" of Obama is one giant myth as everyone knows. Everything is more expensive, including healthcare.

I feel like socialism is the boogeyman that keeps people voting for the GOP.

RE: The Proposed TV Commercial That Guarantees Trump a Landslide Victory
Socialism rhetoric is a relatively new thing, even during Obama you didn't hear a lot of people talking about the dangers of SOCIALISM. I think it showed up mostly around the time of Bernie Sanders's primary run and has kind of stuck around since.

I think it functions mostly as a callback to the glory days of the fight against Soviet Communism. You'll often see people slipping up and talking about "Invading Venezuela to fight Communism", for instance, I posted a tweet where a guy did that in the Venezuela thread the other day.

The difference, of course, is that the communists were responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths, and a wave of terror that spread across the globe, and the socialists are responsible for higher tax rates and increased difficulty in accessing good health care. So honestly it just sounds kinda dumb.

I feel like socialism is the boogeyman that keeps people voting for the GOP.

Democratic socialism is ongoing. As Lenin explained, “The goal of socialism is communism." Just off the top of my head:

1) Centralizing credit and establishment of a state bank. Done.

2) Establishing system of heavy taxation. Done. Yet, Democrats want much more.

3) Disarming citizens to make them powerless against the central government. An unrelenting push by Democrats.

4) Stifling disfavored speech and stifle debate. Ongoing. In the news daily.

5) Centralized health care and Medicare-for-all. Partially done. Ongoing.

6) Open borders. Ongoing -- with no real rationale given, except future Democratic votes.

7) Free university education. Proposed.

8) Slavery reparations. Proposed.

9) Green new deal / fake global warming / carbon credits.

10) Elimination of the electoral college.

11) Politicization of the courts to achieve goals not achievable through the political process, including erosion of Constitutional rights and protections.

12) Redistribution of income and wealth from producers to the non-producers.

13) Substituting democracy (the tyranny of the masses) for a Constitutional Republic that protects individual rights.

But let’s get real: The favorite politician of the oppressed, left-behind workers (who socialists idealize) is Donald Trump, while Wall Street titans, Hollywood moguls, and tech billionaires back the trendy socialist candidates and causes.

As I already noted in a prior post, the largest contributor to President Obama's first campaign was Goldman Sachs. Why do you think that is? Crony capitalism is not capitalism; it is a form of socialism where those with the most money buy access to, and favors from, the government. The Democrats are masters at deceiving the uneducated foolish masses, while castigating the very same Wall Streeters who provide them with the money to get elected.

Yeah, like in Tail Gunner's post above the word "socialism" is also just used as a grab-bag of leftist policies that the speaker dislikes.
You can kinda mentally replace it with "bad democrat stuff" and it'll read just the same.

New commercial material... Sunday S&P Globex futures gapped sharply down - Fin Media Talking heads already blaming Trump...

Stock market slumps on Trump tweet and Hawkish fed

Stock markets got hammered today as Donald Trump announced sudden plans to increase tariffs on China to 25% from 10%.

Also, the Federal Reserve hawkishness puts a bearish tone in the stock market right as it hit fresh all time highs.

You know the saying - markets don't crash from lows, they crash from highs.

Yet a rational observer sees that Rocketman the ChiComms marionette launches a couple of temper tantrum missiles into the Ocean and the Trump Patriots say OK China - Dragging your feet on De-Nukeing AND on Finalizing true reciprocal trade - that March moratorium on raising the 10% China tariffs to 25% JUST ENDED.

"Sudden Plans" was a dead NWO Deep State media give away.

increase tariffs on China to 25% from 10%... Predict Democrat Peoples Marxist Socialist Party and NWO Media heads all explode live on Monday Morning news and CNBC Communist News Business Channel all day long.

Point is Trump back on Trump Time counterpunching where it matters.

Lets see how the Motley Fool Top 5 China ETFs (July 2017) do this week - the Markets deal with what is - not Utopian what should be/

iShares China Large-Cap (NYSEMKT:FXI) $3.27 billion

iShares MSCI China (NYSEMKT: MCHI) $2.59 billion
