Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Democrats have now taken us back to the Klan days of the early 1960s A gang of white Democrats assaulted a black woman in a cafe in Philadelphia Monday morning as she was attempting to have some breakfast. Sound familiar? No, I didnt make that up the black womans name is Candace Owens, a conservative activist who helped to start the rising #walkaway movement on Twitter. The white Democrats were a bunch of Antifa thugs who found out where Ms. Owens was attempting to dine and literally ran her out of the place, as you can see below:
Candace Owens ✔ @RealCandaceO Would like to personally and publicly thank the @PhillyPolice force for keeping us safe today. As you can see in the video, they were all Hispanic and black. The white liberal thugs were shouting no good cops in a racist system. Listen to the BLACK female officer at the end:
1:14 PM - Aug 6, 2018
Had the thugs been wearing the traditional white robes and pointed hoods, the scene would have looked just like something out of Mississippi Burning. Way to go, Democrats! Arent you all so proud at what you have created?
Donald Trump, trust buster? So, imagine this scenario if you will: Executives from ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, Chevron and Total all get together in a room talk about implementing the exact same gasoline price increase on the following day. Then they all go out the following day and implement that exact same gasoline price increase while publicly admitting what theyre doing.
Those folks are in a hell of a lot of trouble under our nations anti-trust laws, wouldnt you say? Yes, if you have firing synapses in your cranial cavity, thats exactly what you would say.
It wouldnt matter if you like those oil companies or hate those oil companies, and it doesnt matter if you like their customers or hate their customers. Those companies are all publicly traded corporations who together control a major share of the U.S. gasoline market, and are thus prevented from engaging in monopolistic behavior, such as fixing prices for their products. Thus, assuming the Department of Justice actually performed its job which is always a crap shoot these days, I admit those executives would soon find themselves on the receiving end of subpoenas soon likely to be followed by indictments.
Now, imagine another scenario: Its January 2019 and President Donald Trump finds himself and his administration under unending assault from congress, where the Democrat Party has managed to win a thin majority in the House of Representatives in the mid-term elections. No, I dont think this is likely to actually happen, but play along with me here.
The President is very frustrated because, as hard as it has been to get congress to do anything with its current thin GOP majorities in both houses, it is now impossible to get anything through the new #Resistance Democrat House. The Democrats are in the process of trying to impeach and remove him from office, but wont be able to come up with the votes in either house of congress to do so, as their own house members who won traditionally GOP districts in 2018 are reluctant to adopt that fools errand as their own.
So, its gridlock in Washington, DC, and Donald Trump is not a guy who deals well with gridlock. Hes got two more years to get stuff done before his re-election bid rolls around, and is left with accomplishing things either through the regulatory process, executive orders or, if he can get his attorney general to act, the courts. What to do?
It may be that several giant social media corporations just answered that question on Monday. The leaders of Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and Pinterest all got together and decided at the persistent urging of CNN and various leading Democrats to remove radio talk show host and conspiracy promoter Alex Jones from their platforms permanently. The same kind of monopolistic action denying an American citizen access to their platforms and the commerce he derives from them on the same day. Classic corporate trust behavior.
Now, it doesnt matter if you like these giant corporations or hate these giant corporations; it doesnt matter if you like Alex Jones or hate Alex Jones. These companies are publicly-traded corporations who cannot by law band together for the purpose of restraint of trade or denial of access to any class of people, and thats exactly what they did to Mr. Jones on Monday. And its what these huge corporations, along with their sister social media platform, Twitter, have been doing to conservative users of their products for years now. This is why, whenever they get caught denying access to conservatives, they always blame the issue on some sort of glitch.
And its not just trust behavior that they are executing here. Theyre also in blatant violation of campaign finance laws. In a very real way, their actions amount to massive in-kind political contributions to the Democrat Party. They apparently believe they are above the law, and if Jeff Sessions turns out to be the worthless swamp skunk many believe him to be, they could be right, at least for the time being.
But if the elections go the wrong way this November, President Trump will likely be looking for ways to keep on #Winning on domestic policy during his second two years in office. Playing a Teddy Rooseveltian Trust Buster to the foil of these increasingly radicalized and abusive Big Tech corporations might have a real appeal to him, and could end up being just the ticket to taking the congress back in 2020 and winning a second term in office.
Stranger things have happened. Hell, stranger things happen every day, dont they?
Just another day in Democrats hate this country America.
That is all.

Poor analogy. TR was the leftist agitator, while the Congress was maintaining a conservative, constitutional order.
The opposite is true today.
“if Jeff Sessions turns out to be the worthless swamp skunk many believe him to be..”
jeff sessions is busy busting mom and pop ginseng smugglers.
He needs to take on the Meat Barons...Tyson, Cargill, JBS, Smithfield. They have millions of pounds of meat in cold storage that keep meat prices high.
