    The Democrat refusal to control or even condemn riots will drive the voters into his arms.

    Tuesday morning, President Trump tweeted two words that succinctly describe the winning coalition that will assure his November reelection: “SILENT MAJORITY.” This prompted a considerable amount of fustian mirth from the Twitter mob, a number of ostensibly serious opinion pieces in the corporate media, and contemptuous dismissal by the Democrats. The consensus was that Trump was indulging a Nixonian fantasy whereby white suburbanites frightened by an increasingly diverse electorate would save his presidency. This interpretation betrays profound ignorance about the term “silent majority,” which never had any racial connotation, and disregards what suburban voters really fear — Democratic incompetence in a time of economic uncertainty and social unrest.

    The ongoing riots in cities “governed” by supine Democrats, combined with the genuine threat that the violence will metastasize outward to the suburbs, is their most conspicuous fear. And they want action. A Morning Consult poll released Tuesday reveals that 71 percent of registered voters support calling in the National Guard to assist the police in quelling the riots, including 67 percent of suburban women. Likewise, 58 percent of voters support calling in the U.S. military if necessary, including 54 percent of suburban women. In other words, clear majorities support President Trump’s intention to deploy U.S. troops if state officials are unable or unwilling to contain the violence. Moreover, he possesses the power to do so. As Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) wrote in the New York Times Wednesday morning:

    The silent majority elected him last time too.

    I’m worried. 33% of the US wants to defund all police. If 1/3 of us are that radical it’s not hard to imagine 19% more not voting for Trump.
    I hope I’m worried over nothing.

    The RIOTERS (Not peaceful protest), Police being de-funded, officers attacked and killed! I would never say a SHOO IN FOR TRUMP, but i hope it's a LANDSIDE!

    There may be a silent minority in the Democratic Party who see their Party going too far left and vote for Trump. They won't publicly endorse Trump, but vote for him secretly. Independents could lean more towards Trump, also. It will be interesting.

    CHAZ alone scares the hell out of most people.

    Lord I do hope so. The mail scam is a major threat to a fair election this year. They're not gonna let the Covid scare go, because sustaining it is necessary to pushing vote by mail. And then, as Stalin famously said, it's not who votes, it's who counts the votes.

    Hope so.

    Most media orgs are pulling out the stops to convince us otherwise. There is zero doubt I’m punching the ticket for Trump.

    IIRC, they had some to do with Reagan, also.

    I’m far more concerned about Democrats interfering with a fair election than Russians. All these “found” ballots after the last few elections that are 95% Democrat votes smell to high heaven.

    You seem to be in the know. Where did they come up with the name Chaz and what does it mean?

    It stands for Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

    The Zone is located in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle.

    The silent majority in 68 wasn’t silent.

    We won’t be silent either

    Expect a lot of fights, riots, social media shadow banning, shaming, incessant badgering, non-stop coverage and amplification of everything wrong with white men.

    I agree. The Democrats are showing how totally insane they really are.

    The riots have nothing to do with Floyd. It was a live training session.

    Where are the weak points in each city?

    Who will support Antifa, the city government, the citizens?

    Who are the proven Antifa leaders that can assemble an action group?

    Build up and recruit soldiers, Combat, supply, intelligence gathering, administration, propaganda.

    The goal will be to goad trump into using the military. firing on citizens.

    When the cities are on flame each state will call for mail in voting. Biden wins and all of a sudden everything is all good again.

    "Democratic incompetence in a time of economic uncertainty and social unrest" ... Seriously - can anyone fully get behind "Sleepy Joe" as being a President with all of his faculties intact ? After the way he publicly blew up at the auto worker who challenged him - can you trust Joe to deal appropriately with a world crisis ? ... I say again , if Trump would enlist the help of Republican "handlers" and get out of his own way just 50% of the time - his re-election would be a cake walk in November !

    He said it because he had a friend count the votes. I believe that Kirov really won the election. Of course, there afterward, the KGB guards assigned to Kirov were removed and new ones put in place. The new ones were also arrested and executed after Kirov was assassinated.
