His Party’s Platform: It’s Always about Him

He is the party platform. It's always about him. (Evan Vucci AP)

Presidential conventions normally are a time of party platforms. Naturally, nothing is normal this time around. In this regard I am not referring to such obvious promises not kept as building a wall, having Mexico pay for it, or bringing back coal, steel, and other manly jobs. Instead, I mean various other promises made. I began listing them at the conclusion of some blogs on May 4 and added a few as time went on. Below is the status on each one rearranged by topic with some recent convention-related addiions.

CORVID-19: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

We have prevailed!!!!

4/6   There is “light at the end of the tunnel” [the father]
8/24 There is more work to do, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. [the junior son]

In the May blog, I asked when we would see the light at the end of the tunnel. Now the end is in sight. The pandemic is over at Fox. The pandemic is in the past tense per Larry Kudlow. The heroic bold leadership of the incumbent President has ended the crisis. Trumpicans believe the virus is under control even without a vaccine. In fact Trumpicans know that the so-called crisis always had been overblown by the media.

These claims are true in the real world in which the Trumpicans live. It is not an alternate reality or parallel universe as elitists dismissively claim, it is their real world. How many of the deceased are Trumpicans? If you tracked the dead by county using 2016 election results, what would the results be? Do individual Trumpicans even know anyone personally who was infected and died?  If Secret Service agents, White House staff and athletes who are infected recover, doesn’t that prove Corvid-19 is like the flu? My position has been all along that unless Trumpicans are dying in droves, they will not wear masks or accept the virus as a crisis. After six months it hasn’t happened. Nothing different should have been done. Mission accomplished.

5/17 “After November 3rd, coronavirus will magically, all of the sudden, go away and disappear and everybody will be able to reopen. They think they’re taking away Donald Trump’s greatest tool, which is to go into an arena and fill it with 50,000 people every time. They will milk it every single day between now and November 3rd.” [the other son]
8/23 Democratic governors only imposed shutdowns to hurt his political chances in November: “I guarantee it on Nov. 4, it will all open up.” [the father]

Like father, like son. So not only will November 4 be the beginning of legal filings on the most rigged and corrupt election in American history, it will be the day when all Covid-19 restrictions will cease according to the father and the other son.

October 2020: announce vaccine cure in Election Day surprise – still on target
January 1, 2021: begin distribution of miracle vaccine – still on target

HEALTHCARE

How many times have we heard about the beautiful beautiful new healthcare program that will replace the worst healthcare program in American history? I first wrote about it on June 19, 2019 in Iran Does Not Watch Fox: The Real World and the 2020 Elections.

“You’ll see that in a month when we introduce it. We’re going to have a plan. That’s subject to winning the House, Senate, and presidency, which hopefully we’ll win all three. We’ll have phenomenal health care.”

Now we have the target as surely as they did for William Miller on October 22, 1844 with the Great Disappointment. We know the date. July 16.

July 16, 2019 has come and gone. So has July 16, 2020. Still no health care proposal. In fact, on July 19, 2020, he was back at in an interview with Chris Wallace.

TRUMP: Pre-existing conditions will always be taken care of by me and Republicans, 100%.
WALLACE: But you’ve been in office three and a half years, you don’t have a plan.
TRUMP: Well, we haven’t had. Excuse me. You heard me yesterday. We’re signing a health care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health care plan that the Supreme Court decision on DACA gave me the right to do.
So we’re going to solve — we’re going to sign an immigration plan, a health care plan and various other plans. And nobody will have done what I’m doing in the next four weeks.
The Supreme Court gave the President of the United States powers that nobody thought the President had, by approving, by doing what they did — their decision on DACA. And DACA’s going to be taken care of also.
But we’re getting rid of it because we’re going to replace it with something much better. What we got rid of already, which was most of Obamacare, the individual mandate. And that I’ve already won on. And we won also on the Supreme Court.

Is it two weeks yet since that interview? Four weeks? Will there ever be a healthcare proposal? Will the Supreme Court strike down the world’s worst healthcare plan before the election? At least we know that the vaunted red wave will win the House, the Senate, and the Presidency.

ECONOMY

May 8 2020: “Those jobs will all be back, and they’ll be back very soon.”
June 2020: Back to Normal economy
July 2020: We’re rockin’ now: “We will transition into greatness. That’s a phrase you’re going to hear a lot, because that’s what’s going to happen.”
August 20: “We are doing well. We’re doing well. We got hit by this China plague. But other than that. I mean, we were rocking. And now we’re going to be rocking again very, very soon.”
Fourth Quarter 2020: economy will be tremendous – still on target.

If he had confined his predictions to the stock market instead of to the economy he would have been right.

OBAMA CORRUPTION 2016 and 2020

April 2011: Birtherism – reveal Hawaii findings on Obama soon: STILL WAITING
Fall 2020: Deep State Indicted: still on target

According to Kayleigh McEnany, Obama’s spying on Trump was “the greatest political scandal and crime in U.S. history.” The same view was expressed once again on the first day of the Republican convention.  “We caught them doing really bad thing. Let’s see what happens. They’re trying it again.” If there is damaging information about Obama which was discovered in Hawaii, wouldn’t now be a good time to release it? At least with his loyal Attorney General, there is a guarantee of Election Day surprise indictments that won’t be a surprise. Expect an all-out blitz by Fox, vindicated at last!

ELECTION RESULTS

November 3 2020: Deploy army of real Americans to suppress vote of…you know…those people – Vote Suppressors to become a TV reality show: still on target (some details have emerged on how my prediction will be fulfilled and by whom)
November 3 2020: CLAIM VICTORY NO MATTER THE RESULTS: still on target
January 20 2021: Nancy Pelosi becomes President – still on target

2024 ELECTION PREDICTIONS

1. Biden will abolish the suburbs.
2. Biden is good for Iran, ISIS, and great for Communist China – Nikki “Please choose me” Haley.

OTHER PREDICTIONS

October 2016: sue all his women accusers after the campaign: STILL WAITING

Despite all the time spent in court in New York and Washington, no action has been taken. So far there has been one judgement to pay over $40,000 in legal fees for one woman and a second woman’s lawsuit is proceeding through the court system slowly but surely.

January 20 2021: Arrested by New York, spends night at Rikers – still on target but the suggestion of ankle monitors and confinement to Trump Palace also has been mentioned

The key to the predictions is not what you believe to be true but what Trumpicans believe to be true. Second, what will happen with the economy and Corvid-19 between now and Election Day? If the pandemic is in the past and the economy is improving, the 42% vote for the incumbent will increase. It’s still too early to measure the drapes.
