However, they have been directed to “stand down,” allegedly by Attorney General William Barr, literally giving the ex-president and ex-vice president de facto immunity. President Trump recently said something along the lines that Barr could be politically correct or he could do the right thing and show that there are not two tiers of justice. A data point is the plea deal with Kevin Clinesmith. Whoopee! One of the co-conspirators in Spygate gets a literal pass. His attorney claims that Clinesmith, a lawyer, didn’t know that he was lying to the FISA court. Add that one to the what-a-crock barrel.
What happened to the USDA John Huber investigation of the Clinton Foundation? Peter Schweizer did superb investigations on the alleged misuse of funds. Uranium One comes to mind as one of many associated examples. AG Bill Barr shut it down. Needless to say, enthusiasm levels for justice being served on elites has been curbed.
Jack Cashill wrote an article a few weeks ago about traveling from Kansas City to elsewhere in the USA. My Venezuelan-born wife and I traveled recently from Florida to California by car. We visited family as we cruised through 15 states, including Kansas. It was wonderful to see my wife enjoy sights that I had seen as a kid such as Mt. Rushmore and Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park. We were bummed out that we made the drive to the entrance of Yosemite Park but were denied access since we had not obtained a permit. We spent the night in Tulare, California before going to Sequoia National Park and seeing the General Sherman Tree.

What struck us most was that most of the TRUMP 2020 signs were not the little Burma Shave signs I saw as a kid. These were huge banners. We saw several farmers and ranchers who were operating equipment that had banners for Trump displayed proudly as they were operating their tractors, for example. Yes, the observations were mostly in suburban or rural areas. But when we went to hotels and restaurants at many locations, people, either openly or through overheard conversations, were talking about the benefits of the Trump presidency and its continuation for another four years. The enthusiasm is real and electric as far as we could tell. And this cut across racial and ethnic groups.
Lots of Trump signs and banners in western Colorado. My favorite is a 4X6 footer than reads:
No More Bullsh*t
I was living in Texas during the 2008 & 2012 elections and I never thought Obama would win, but that didn’t change the fact there were Obama signs and stickers in places I would have NEVER imagined would vote for Obama.
I now believe one of the best polls available is to count the signs foreach candidate. Right now Trump in a landslide according to local signs/stickers.
Here in York county, PA, I’m seeing more Trump signs than I saw in 2016.
Thank you for that story.
I live in western North Carolina and the only place I saw a Biden sign was in Asheville. Back in ‘16, I saw a lot of signs for Hillary.
Not in cities. Even in purple states the cities have few if any Trump signs and many "Anybody else in 2020" signs.
City dwellers are smart. They don't want their houses trashed by the vulgarians.
Thank you for that story.
We saw several Trump signs north of Niagara Falls a month ago and the sign you mentioned near Erie, PA.
At home here there are many Trump signs this time around. Last time a few came up just before the election. Most of the signs are large and even banners on big bales of hay. There is also net wrap made for hay bales now that is red, white, and blue. Love for America is great in the heartland.
I live in Western NY along the PA/NY border and it’s totally Trump country. I have seen i Biden poster and it’s in the democrat election office window.
I work in a hospital and a lot of the nursing staff are women. A lot of ‘’soccer moms’’ most of whom have been politcally indifferent or voted Democrat.
It’s no secret in the place that I’m known as a conservative and within limits and observance of the workplace regulations I keep it light. But all of these moms are quietly telling me “I’m voting for Trump’’.
They’re seeing what’s going on around them and their scared. A number of their husbands are blue collar guys who have either lost their jobs or a are barely hanging on.
The disturbing thing for me is that before they tell this they make a point of looking side to side to see if anyone is looking at them and then they tell me quietly, using their hand to shield their mouths.
But this is New Jersey, a totalitarian Democrat state.
Wear the note on your shirt pocket, and update it daily, keeping the reason for the number quiet for now.
When a substantial number of people have confided thus, then make the reason for the number known.
It will likely enforce their decision, make them get their ass down to the polls, and maybe sway a few fence sitters who would love to vote their conscience and pocket book, but are afraid of peer disapproval.
I see some 7-10 clients daily all week.
When one of them tells me similar, I smile and let them know that the majority of them are thinking the same way!
Cheers them up immensely, and likely gets the conversation going elsewhere.
Here in MI there are more Trump signs than I can count, with more popping up every time I go out. Many more, and earlier, than 2016. I just saw my third biden one today.
Wow! Pictures? without pics it’s just hot air! Just saying...actually I would have loved to have seen some!
As I said I have to be careful. Hospitals are some of the most politically correct environments in America. You have no idea how easy it is to get in trouble for having the wrong attitude or saying the wrong thing. Again also as I said the fact that these women tell me this after first having to make sure they're not being observed is very disturbing. It lets me know I'm seen as ''the conservative guy/or slightly derisively known as "The Trump guy''. That alone should tell you what I'm talking about.
Just share the reason for the number with the ones who confide in you, a non public display?
Anyway, the fact that their are those there is good in itself!
I have shared it. I’ve said “I know. Some of your colleagues have told me the same thing.’’
Some of them look pleased when told this. Two of them looked terrified as if their ‘’secret’’ might be revealed.
One actually said “OMG, don’t tell anybody.’’. Can you leieve this?
This is America in 2020.
I can’t wear a MAGA hat or put a Trump sign on my lawn because I’ll have a brick thrown through my window.
Jobs are at stake when one is an open conservative in a Healthcare setting.
