Complete 2020 Republic Convention Coverage

Before the Republican Convention started I checked my DISH guide to see which stations would be covering it live. I was somewhat surprised to see that none of the major networks would be showing each night in its entirety, but rather would be devoting one or two hours at most.

After checking various options I decided to record NBC’s coverage and watch it the following day so I could skip forward to avoid commercials. When I started watching it is was very disappointed to see the talking heads telling me how I should interpret what I was seeing, rather than just showing it and letting me form my own opinion. After watching less than fifteen minutes of their first night coverage I deleted the first night’s recording and removed their scheduled recording for nights two through four.

After searching online I finally found a source that would enable me to watch complete coverage each night, without interruption and No Talking Heads.

C-SPAN provided complete coverage and I thank them for doing so.

For those that haven’t seen it, or want to review parts of it, each of the four nights is available below.

Is The Walkaway Movement Growing?

With all the negative attacks on President Trump, I found it interesting to see this coming from a Democrat.

AN OPEN LETTER TO DEMOCRATS FROM A DEMOCRAT

I just have a few questions for Democrats. Let me start with the fact that I already know you don’t like President Trump. That’s a given, so let’s move on from that.

  • How about the division of America, do you really blame Trump for that?
  • How about when NONE of the DEMOCRATS showed up for his inauguration? Don’t you think that started the division? He hadn’t even been president yet, and EXCEPT for Clinton and Obama, not one democrat showed up. Is that when Trump divided America? Can you imagine if the REPUBLICANS didn’t show up for Obama’s inauguration because they lost??? Can you even start to imagine what would have happened?
  • How about when 19 minutes after Trump was inaugurated, the Washington Post declared the IMPEACHMENT CAMPAIGN has STARTED? Was that when Trump divided America?
  • How about when Nancy Pelosi ripped up Trump’s state of the union right in front of the world, showing complete disrespect for the President of the United States? Did that bring the country together and is THAT when Trump divided America?
  • How about when America had to endure, 3 years and over 30 million dollars spent on trying to PROVE that Trump only won because of RUSSIAN COLLUSION and NOT because America voted him in and 17 Democrats did EVERYTHING in their power to PROVE that there was Russian Collusion…and came up with ZERO…? Was THAT when Trump divided America?
  • I can’t even start to go over the amount of NEGATIVE PRESS he’s received since his surprise win, which is 90-95% depending on the source.
  • Remember, the DONORS, the likes Bloomberg, who gave 27 million, Tom Steyer who gave 17 million, George Soros who gave 9 million and MANY MORE that gave MULTI-MILLIONS to Hillary and wanted a return on their investment…Do you really think that donors give MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS just because they love Hillary?
    NO, these weren’t campaign donations, they were INVESTMENTS into what HILLARY had promised them when she became president….They were so sure she would win and they would be SHOWERED with HUGE RETURNS, and when it didn’t happen and they LOST all those millions, they went all out to TAKE TRUMP out of OFFICE by any means possible…
  • DID YOU KNOW that 90% of the Mainstream media and the corporations that own them are owned by or run by BIG DEMOCRAT DONORS? You can verify all of that for yourselves…I did…Since the moment Trump won, even before he was inaugurated, the mainstream media’s reporting was 92% negative on Trump, do you know why?
    It was those big donors that lost their dream of MILLIONS of dollars, on their returns that they were going to receive win Hillary was president and they weren’t going to take that loss lightly…They needed to PUNISH TRUMP and those that VOTED HIM IN…I’ve said this since the night he was elected…

“There is NOTHING the left won’t do to take down our President”, our country and us, no low they won’t go to, to get their power back”, and sadly, we have seen this every single day since his election.

Let me ask you this…Have you ever listened to Trump or appreciated any accomplishment or campaign promises he’s kept, have you ever gone to one of his rallies or have you just closed your mind to ANYTHING he does? Please ask yourselves the following questions, if you dare…

  • What has Joe Biden done for America for the last 47 years that he’s held an office?
  • What did Joe Biden ever do for BLACKS when HE and Obama were in office?
  • What has Joe Biden ever done in his entire life to create a private-sector job?
  • What has Joe Biden done to help the American middle-class worker?
  • Why do you think there are so many people tearing down statues, burning flags, beating up police officers, disrespecting our founders, and hating our country? It comes straight from our SCHOOLS that have slowly been tearing down our history…If there is a teacher out there, please tell me the following:
  • Do you teach the truth that it was DEMOCRATS that were the KKK?
  • That the GRAND LEADER of the KKK was Robert Byrd, who was elected to congress and served for decades, and that it was Hillary, Bill, and Obama that gave his EULOGY praising him?
  • DEMOCRATS fought the Civil war to KEEP SLAVERY?
  • That the inner-city ghettoes were created by DEMOCRATS to keep control of slaves after they were freed?
  • That planned parenthood was founded in inner cities to CONTROL the BLACK POPULATION? Is any of this in your history books? Let me ask you this as well.
  • Can a student speak up when he/she disagrees with a teacher when they say that Trump is a horrible president or that the electoral college has to be eliminated? I don’t think so? Well, I know a student that actually happened to…When the teacher said it had to be eliminated because Hillary lost, and he stated the reason it should stay,
    She ripped him apart and gave the entire class a 5-hour test, and stated it was because he DARED to disagree with her…Is that happening in your schools? I’m only asking questions….I’d like your answers.

President Trump and his entire family have been vilified, demeaned, and disrespected, for one reason and one reason only…….HE WON…

  • Have you noticed the DEMOCRATS only throw tantrums and OBJECT to everything he does and have NEVER ONCE gotten behind him or tried to work with him to help make America the best it can be? WHY? They can’t afford to get behind him…he would WIN AGAIN, and they can’t let that happen….if he wins again, the Democrat party will be destroyed and they know it.
  • Did you notice that the “CAGES” the left claimed that Trump built to put Illegal children in WERE ACTUALLY BUILT BY OBAMA for the very purpose of PUTTING ILLEGAL CHILDREN IN?
    Was THAT all over the news when Obama did it? The very same “CAGES”…but the media was silent!!
  • How about when Trump commuted Roger Stone’s sentence, and was DEMONIZED 24/7 but NOT A WORD when Obama commuted 1715 inmates, which included 330 that he granted on his last day in office.
    DID WE EVEN HEAR one WORD about it? Were there reporters even reporting it…NO! Just look at the difference in the reporting. By the way, since Trump’s been in office he’s commuted 10 people…compare that to Obama…Is that reporting fair?
  • How about when Biden and Obama allowed the H1N1, the SWINE FLU, to INFECT MILLIONS of Americans before declaring it a health emergency. Was the press losing its minds and calling it the OBAMAFLU AND BLAMING OBAMA and BIDEN for the spread? SILENCE!
  • Compare this to the NEGATIVE COVERAGE that Trump got when, he immediately halted travel from China when, in February, Nancy Pelosi went to Chinatown and said come on down, or when DeBlasio, in March, said ride the subways and go to broadway…BUT those same people are blaming Trump for the spread of coronavirus
  • What have the DEMOCRATS done to help make America the best, to get behind a president that works tirelessly to care about WE THE PEOPLE instead of using us as political pawns.
  • What have the democrats done for people of color EXCEPT for GIVING ILLEGALS more rights than citizens and having us pay for it…

JUST imagine what this country could accomplish if the Democrats worked with Trump on the economy, the coronavirus, the inner cities where he’s created opportunity zones, job training, etc.

When Trump tried to get school choice for inner-city students they ran Betsy Devoss out!! TheDemocrats running those innercity schools wanted no part of school choice.

Have you ever wondered why the cities that have the MOST HOMELESS, the MOST CRIME, the most MURDERS, the worst INNER CITY schools, ARE ALL RUN BY DEMOCRATS and have been for many years???

If you haven’t started asking yourselves those questions, maybe you should

As I said, my entire family used to be Democrats, but now NOT ONE will ever vote for a Democrat again.

They asked themselves these same questions and their conclusions were clear.

What Is The Stock Market Is Telling Us About The Economy

In spite of all the negative news from mainstream media, the stock market is telling a much different story. The DJIA is commonly used as the pulse of the American economy by the media, but investors usually put more faith in the S&P 500. The Russell indexes also provide a good picture of what is happening in the stock market.

Here is a summary table along with individual charts for each index from the beginning of 2020 through 8/18/200 that clearly show the market is pretty much back to what it was before the COVID pandemic overreaction that lead to shutting down America and in some cases is even better.

Hopefully, things will be even better by November.
