Which Democrats are easiest for President Trump to defeat?

Which Democrats should Republicans root for to be the 2020 nominee

Democrats and Republicans think differently. It’s not just about policy. It’s about the strategies they utilize to achieve their goals. Republicans generally root against anything or anyone they believe is a threat, and with the growing ranks of Democratic candidates for president representing tremendous threats to the American way of life, it’s natural for Republicans to want to root against all of them.

Perhaps it’s time for Republicans to pull from the Democrats’ playbook when it comes to the primaries. Instead of rooting against everyone, Republicans should identify the real threats to President Trump and start rooting for the Democrats who will be easier to beat. This should apply to conservative media as well. We won’t see leftist mainstream media doing this, and while there may be some applied strategy at Fox News, their main goal will continue to be railing against everyone.

We saw the Democrats’ strategy in play during the 2016 election. They universally decided candidate Trump would be the easiest for Hillary Clinton to beat, so through the GOP primary they did everything they could to prop him up. This was a tremendous miscalculation, of course, but they were able to effectively eliminate Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio by painting them as evil early on. Some will recall that not all press about candidate Trump was positive during the primaries, but compared to the coverage he received after he secured the nomination, it was like night and day.

Instead of attacking everyone, Republicans on social media and conservative media should focus on the biggest threats to President Trump. Who are they? Let’s list the current and potential future Democratic candidates based on their likeliness to threaten President Trump in 2020. This is a dynamic situation, of course, so I’ll edit the list as candidates become more or less likely to be threats.

Threat Level: Zero

Here are the candidates who have no chance of winning the nomination, let alone challenging Trump even if they did get nominated. We only included the ones who may actually make it to the first set of primaries and caucuses. There are dozens of declared or potential candidates who aren’t going to get that far:

  • Eric Swalwell
  • Terry McAuliffe
  • Stacey Abrams
  • Pete Buttigieg
  • John Delaney
  • Michael Bennet

Threat Level: Low

As crazy as the nomination process is, there’s always a chance that someone can make the news and start getting serious consideration for the nomination. These people are those who today seem to have very little chance but with a little spark, they might be able to light a fire. Nevertheless, they wouldn’t be a threat to President Trump if they were given the nod:

  • Tulsi Gabbard
  • Bill de Blasio
  • Eric Holder
  • John Hickenlooper
  • Kirsten Gillibrand

Threat Level: Moderate

Now we’re getting into the people who could challenge for the nomination and also give the President a bit of a challenge in the right circumstances. Some of this list should be propped up by Republicans as they emerge into prominence because if they can be used to stop a stronger candidate, so be it. Better to take on another weak candidate than the stronger ones in the next section of this list:

  • Michael Bloomberg – Some would say the billionaire belongs higher on the list, but he just doesn’t seem to have the will to want to run a long campaign. If he were a decade younger, perhaps, but he’ll be almost 78-years-old by the time the first caucus rolls around.
  • Amy Klobuchar – She, too, could be higher on the list because she’s a midwest candidate with a reputation for toughness and some in the media already falling for her. Nevertheless, she’s still a dark horse at this point.
  • Cory Booker – Try as he might, Spartacus can’t seem to shake his credibility issues. He seems like someone who has to try really hard to pretend like he’s just one of the guys. It’s disingenuous and voters are going to see through it.
  • Julian Castro – It may be an election cycle too early for the young rising star to make an impact in the election. His name recognition outside of Texas is minimal despite a relatively long career in the public eye.
  • Elizabeth Warren – She’s just a joke. On paper, she’s a strong candidate, but it’s getting too hard to take her seriously as she seems to be the less-likable female version of Bernie Sanders.
  • Sherrod Brown – If the party starts getting scared about far-left radicals dominating the primaries, they may turn to the more moderate Brown to save the party. If they turn quickly enough, he could move up on the list, but for now he’s still buried as a non-factor.

Support conservatism. Support real news. Support NOQ Report.

Threat Level: High

If the President can prevent any of these candidates from getting the nomination, that would be the best case scenario. They all have strengths that could be used to their advantage against the President in the general election, which is why they’re on this list:

  • Kamala Harris – She has California on her side, and with the largest state in the land securing an early primary, it may be difficult to dismiss her even if she doesn’t fair well in the earlier states. Her leftist bonafides are questionable, which will be what her competitors latch onto during the primary season. If they can paint her as a moderate in progressive clothing, it may be enough to stop her. Otherwise, she’s the type of candidate that President Trump doesn’t want to face in the general election because she represents every demographic that’s opposed to him – young, female, and a minority.
  • Bernie Sanders – Never underestimate the Senator’s appeal, especially to Independents that learn to trust him like a grandfather. He may be the person to either secure the nomination for the socialists, or who can anoint a new replacement to take up his mantle. Expect Harris and Beto O’Rourke (and every other socialist-leaning candidate) to want Sanders out early and ready to endorse them.
  • Beto O’Rourke – Next to Harris, O’Rourke offers the second best contrast to Trump. His policies seem to be mercurial, which may endear him to the base or may alienate him from the pack, depending on how he’s received by the press. But his greatest weapon is likability. Unlike Harris who often loses people when she speaks, O’Rourke seems to energize the people even more with his words. He’s the closest to a young Barack Obama on this list and has the fundraising skills to match.
  • Joe Biden – If reason wins out in the party, this is Biden’s nomination if he wants it. The way things seem now, reason isn’t winning. Hyper-leftism seems to be the way of the Democratic Party going forward unless Biden decides to run, secures the nomination, and brings order to the chaos of his party. Of course, if he gets the nomination and loses to President Trump, it will be the end of the Democratic establishment forever. They will go so far to the left that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be the new normal in the Democratic Party.

The dust is still settling. The time to act isn’t here just yet, but the time to prepare is now. Republicans need to pick their targets wisely and guide the Democratic nomination in the right direction. President Trump’s reelection chances go up dramatically against certain candidates. We need to help these candidates win their nomination.

If only one Democrat, mainstream media shill, or Hollywood snowflake admitted they were wrong about Mueller…

If only one Democrat mainstream media shill or Hollywood snowflake admitted they were wrong about Mu

My nasty, terrible, awful secret is that deep down, I thought Donald Trump Jr. colluded with the Russians. I know what you’re thinking. “How did you fall for the media’s fake news?” As ashamed as I am of this revelation, I figured based on the information being circulated, it made sense that Don Jr. got a tip that could help his father and he likely acted on it.

Following the summary of Robert Mueller’s investigation report that claimed there was no collusion by the Trump campaign, I’m pleased to acknowledge that I was wrong. Of course, I’m not a Democrat, a mainstream media shill, or a Hollywood snowflake. I’m just an innocent conservative who fell for onslaught of “bombshell” reports.

I was wrong and I’m happy about that.

Now, try to find anyone in the opposition party in newsrooms, Hollywood, or the DNC who is willing to admit they were wrong this whole time. Anyone? ANYONE?

Here’s the thing. If there’s one thing that would help heal this nation’s divide, it would be the Democrats coming out and acknowledging they made a huge mistake following faulty reports and wishful thinking that led them to believe in something that simply wasn’t there. Aren’t the Democrats about uniting the nation? Aren’t they the ones always saying the nation’s divided and it needs to be fixed?

I’m one of those people who likes many of the things the President is doing while not liking the way he’s doing it. But I’m also the type of person who can acknowledge when I was misled, and after falling for the witch hunt hoax of the century, I have no problem doing so now.

Therefore, I call on those who helped spread the Russian-Trump collusion narrative to publicly admit they were spreading the rumors from their own echo chamber and turning it into what they would consider to be news. If they can do that, I’ll actually regain a smidgen of respect for them.

It’s hard to admit when you’re wrong. I get it. But the nation is truly divided and the Russian-collusion fake news witch hunt hoax is the primary culprit of the last two years. Grow some integrity and acknowledge your errors, Democrats.

Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if it’s clean

Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if its clean

Let’s play the hypothetical game. Now that Attorney General William Barr’s summary of Robert Mueller’s Russian election hacking report has indicated the President and his campaign did not collude with the Russians, the only thing the left can do is hope for a release of the full report. In it, they hope to find evidence that there really was collusion and possibly obstruction of justice, but not enough evidence to indict anyone on it. In the court of public opinion, it may be enough to win the 2020 election.

But what if there’s nothing? What if the Mueller report makes it even more clear than AG Barr’s conclusion that collusion didn’t occur? In that scenario, releasing the report would give the GOP every ounce of ammunition they need to sink the Democratic Party for the foreseeable future.

Imagine all the soundbites and Tweets of Democrats, media shills, and Hollywood activists over the last 22 months declaring with a certainty that the investigation was necessary, that it would yield fruit, and that it wasn’t a witch hunt. Now, imagine a Republican Party that was actually savvy when it comes to winning elections. I know it’s difficult to picture based on RNC’s campaign illiteracy, but try your hardest to picture effectiveness in campaign messaging by the GOP. Such a scenario would put dozens of Democrats across the nation in jeopardy based solely on the gigantic waste of time, energy, and personal investment.

They promised us they were going to take down the President and prove he stole the 2016 election. They banked on the notion that the only reason Hillary Clinton lost is because Donald Trump cheated. They screamed through tears of desperation in trying to protect Mueller because they assumed the President would fire him. When none of those things panned out, they revealed their attempts to rally the people for a righteous cause were actually manifestations of their Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Can you imagine all that? Good. Now, let’s look at the reality of the situation.

If the report is not released soon, it’s very likely there are things in there that the President doesn’t want made public. There would be no other reason to keep it sealed, especially after declaring that it should be released. The shadow of the report is going to grow much bigger than the meat of the report itself. The left is already playing like the Barr summary was just a smokescreen so the administration could keep the report sealed without getting backlash.

On the other hand, holding the report back for a little while could be the 4D chess we always hear about in regards to the President’s campaign strategies. If he can get the left banking even more on the report as their smoking gun before releasing it to reveal a giant nothingburger, it may not just be a few dozen Democrats across the nation in sudden election jeopardy. It could be the end for literally hundreds of them.

Don’t assume if the report gets held from the public for a while that it has something bad in it. If it gets released in a month or two after every Democratic candidate screams for it, then the nothinburger will be a poison pill for their whole party.

First they came for the gun owners….

First they came for the gun owners

…but I didn’t say anything because I didn’t own a gun.

One of the more infuriating aspects of the Left’s game of denying reality with their little ‘That wasn’t really socialism’ is that there are distinct parallels between their agenda and that of other socialist nations, past and present. They all have a similar process of imposing socialistic slavery with a specific national agenda. A key part being the deprivation of the means of self-defense to their citizens and those who posses these means.

Denying the right of self-defense is a fundamental aspect of socialism

It is a fact of history that gun confiscation is an integral part of implementing of a socialist national agenda. The USSR required the people to turn in their guns, as did the German national socialist worker’s party. As was Fidel Castro’s response in the question of whether the people should have guns as or the United Socialist Party of Venezuela confiscating guns from the people for their own safety, of course.

These have all taken place at the onset of socialistic slavery, but somehow the new version isn’t the same because reasons. Leftists aren’t really trying to set up a governmental monopoly on the use of force, they are just trying to protect the children* [ *unborn and under 9 months old excluded ]. Even though it has been proven time and again that their repression of Liberty does not work as advertised.

The liberty grabber left is now celebrating the destruction of basic civil liberties

Where this subject not so deadly serious, it would be comical to still witness leftists parroting the ‘No one is talking about gun confiscation’ or a variant thereof. Meanwhile they can scarcely contain themselves in the glee over New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern seizing on their ‘serious crisis’ to confiscate guns with tweets looking to replicate the destruction of a basic human right in the states.

It is more than a coincidence that the tempo of the drum beat for liberty control has increased while the ideological fraud of socialism is being forced on the people. After a long winded piece gloating about leftist victories over liberty, an opinion piece in Bloomberg has even suggested that Chief Justice John Roberts seize on the serious crisis in New Zealand, using it to destroy this basic civil liberty.

Citizens turned into subjects with a change in the relationship between the people and the government

The genius of the founding fathers is that they recognized that down through history, people have had varying relationships with government. In most cases it was one of the government having a monopoly on the use of force. On occasion the people would challenge this monopoly and change the government, but only after an ensuing orgy of carnage and death.

The founders set forth a new paradigm, that of government by the consent of the people with a semblance of parity via a distributed ability to use force. The nation’s Socialist-Left would like to change or ‘reform’ that paradigm back to the old-fashioned version of the government being the sole purveyor of force. Please note that we are dispensing with the tired old line of the left that this is not what they want. They have made this quite clear over the past few years to the point that anyone that is informed of the issue recognizes that this is just another lie on their part.

“He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression.” – Thomas Paine

Relegating gun owners to 2nd class citizenship

Those of us who haven’t traded, sold or lost all of our guns in a boating accident are a persecuted class these days. The situation is much akin to a baseball pitching machine throwing fastballs over and over again without let-up. With all kinds of new laws being proposed at state and federal levels that range from invasive Intergalactic Background Checks, liability insurance requirements, gun registration and of course, gun confiscation SWATing legislation.

The destruction of basic civil liberties will only begin with gun owners

Every citizen of the nation is protected with basic Constitutional principles and civil rights including due process, the presumption of innocence and the right to face one’s accuser.

The gun owner has been excluded from these basic civil liberties in some states, and if the liberty grabbers had their way, such would be the case nationwide. With just the flimsiest insinuation of being ‘dangerous’ a gun owner [or those who are merely accused of being a gun owner] will be subjected to gun confiscation raid from the authorities.

This will be just the beginning of the ordeal – if they survive the SWAT team coming at 5:00 AM without warning. Our 2nd class citizen will have to prove they aren’t ‘dangerous’ after they have effectively found guilty in a star chamber. It will only be after spending thousands of dollars in legal fees that they may get their property back in less than stellar condition. The trend is to set gun owners below the legal status of accused criminals in the eyes of the justice system.

We’re just starting on the slippery slope

Fresh from their moves against the basic human right of self-preservation, the chief censor of the government of New Zealand has arbitrarily decided that certain ideas are beyond the pale, sparking a debate over free speech as reported by the Associated Press. This of course is another ongoing controversy in the states over the issue of political correctness and ‘Hate speech’. This shows that isn’t just about ‘military style assault weapons’ or whatever is the phrase at the moment, this is a question of liberty, something the people who use a similar sounding label used to pretend to support.

Make no mistake, the legislative mechanisms and regulations used to deprive gun owners of their commonsense human and civil rights will be used on others if they are allowed to stand. A civil liberties group in California made the point that one doesn’t have to be a gun owner to be subjected to gun confiscation SWATing. If they can go after the property of a gun owner in one instance, because they don’t like their attitude, what’s to stop them from going after a journalist or other type of activist? These orders only have to allege someone is dangerous with little evidence, much less proof that they own a gun. What’s to stop them from deciding free-speech is dangerous or ‘offensive’ necessitating that their computers or cell phones should be seized – at gunpoint no less?

The Takeaway

The whole point of the ‘first they came for’ series is that authoritarians rarely go after everyone at once. They are very careful in picking their targets for their oppression with the tactic of divide and conquer. Today it’s the people who own guns, tomorrow it will be those who don’t conform to the precepts of ‘political correctness’.

This is why President John F. Kennedy stated that: “The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”

This is why everyone should be concerned at the headlong rush to denigrate the right of self-defense. And why everyone should be horrified that the government could even consider jettisoning the basic civil liberty of due process and the presumption of innocence. The loss of basic civil rights for some will mean the loss for everyone.
