This ought to get some of my Trump supporters into a better mood…..
I know that this could be the horror scenario for some…..but sadly too many pundits are seeing the second term as a more likely scenario than not.
This prediction from the Hill….
I’m not a professional political analyst, so my political analysis is worth about what you pay for it. However, a few people who know that I called Donald Trump as the 2016 winner, starting back in 2015, have asked me what I think now.
My prediction for the 2016 race was based on a variety of observational and anecdotal evidence. I listened to Democrats, Republicans and independents across the U.S. I talked to people who consider themselves apolitical. I heard from taxi and Uber drivers, the Verizon man, stay-at-home moms, college grads, professionals, blue-collar delivery workers. And I watched nearly every rally of Trump and his opponents.
Now, that same unscientific methodology has led me to conclude that Trump has already secured a second term — no matter who his main opponent turns out to be.
Is it his undying support from the American people of could other forces be at work……say….cyber forces…..
The letter, dated February 11, says that between May and July 2019, personal data may have been compromised “in a data breach” of a system hosted by the Defence Information Systems Agency.
The agency provides direct telecommunications and IT support for President Donald Trump, Vice-President Mike Pence, their staff and the US Secret Service, according to its website.
Could the break down in cyber security help others to influence the electorate?
American intelligence officials told House lawmakers last week that Russia already is interfering in the presidential campaign in an effort to see President Trump reelected. Republican and Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee attended the meeting on what a Democratic official called a briefing on “the integrity of our upcoming elections,” the New York Times reports. Lawmakers were told that this time, Russia also plans to interfere with the Democratic presidential primaries. The plan includes attacking election infrastructure, per CNN, as well as hacking and weaponizing social media.
Trump was angry that the briefing was held, concerned that Democrats would use Russia’s interference against him in the campaign. He was especially irked that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff heard the intelligence officials’ finding. Republicans at the briefing challenged the conclusion, saying Trump has been tough on Russia. “I’d challenge anyone to give me a real-world argument where Putin would rather have President Trump and not Bernie Sanders,” Chris Stewart of Utah said in an interview later. In addition to securing Trump’s reelection, the intelligence officials said, Russia wants to instill doubt about the integrity of the election.
I know….it is that Russia thing yet again…..
Think about it…if the Dems do lose the election (God forbid) then they will need someone to blame and who is a better bad guy than Russia.
Not to worry…Trump has him some stoolies in Congress to keep him in the loop….
The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee denied reports that Russia was intervening in the 2020 presidential campaign to support Donald Trump’s reelection.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was interviewed by Laura Ingraham on Fox News about the breaking news on Russia.
“A senior U.S. intelligence official told lawmakers last week that Russia wants to see President Trump reelected, viewing his administration as more favorable to the Kremlin’s interests, according to people who were briefed on the comments,” The Washington Post reported Thursday. “Trump learned about Pierson’s remarks from Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican and a staunch Trump ally, said one person familiar with the matter.”
Then there are those pundits on the MSM that will push for a second term for Trump…..millionaire pundits like MSNBC’s Matthews……
As Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared headed for a decisive victory Saturday in the Nevada caucuses, MSNBC host Chris Matthews pondered whether President Donald Trump’s re-election might be better for the Democratic establishment than the Vermont senator’s multiracial, multigenerational movement taking over the party.
“I’m wondering if Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be President?” said Matthews. “Maybe that’s too exciting a question to raise. Do they want Bernie to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity? Maybe they’d rather wait 4 years and put in a Democrat that they like.”
Matthews has always been a bit of a political coward.
