Four Ominous Reasons Trump Will Win in 2020

Jerry Kroth, Information Clearing House, October 30, 2019

Moodys Analytics correctly predicted every Presidential winner since 1980, and two days ago, smack in the middle of the latest impeachment kerfuffle, they predicted Trump would win in 2020 by an electoral landslide.[1]


Here are four intrusive smelling salts intended to rouse Democrats from their sleep, because if they don´t wake up, Donald Trump is going to get re-elected.

Reason 1: Illegal immigration

One million people were stopped trying to cross into the United States last year. Yes, one million people! [2] {snip}


The liberal media interminably carps that detainees are treated poorly, that a child died in detention, that a pregnant mother was not given care, that a baby is crying for his parents, and that a racist, corrupt, uncaring, narcissistic President is responsible for it all.

It then tosses in a dollop of pedagogy to school Americans that the term “illegal alien” is racist, demeaning, and absolutely needs to be excised from the lexicon. All migrants, legal and otherwise, should be called “immigrants.” {snip}

But despite this fusillade of sympathy for immigrants, that is, illegal immigrants, there is a large segment of American society that isn´t playing along.

Whatever this demographic is named —some call them “deplorables”—these Americans actually object to a million people entering the country without visas. They really do.

Here´s a voice large segments of the media and Democrats in particular, have not heard, are not listening to, but most importantly, will not listen to:

“Just because I don´t like these folks coming into our country, I don´t like being called a racist. I don´t like being told I am intolerant or that I´m a hate criminal. I just don´t like a hundred and fifty thousand foreigners slipping into our country every month, enrolling in our schools, using fake social security numbers, taking jobs, having babies who are given citizenship on the spot, being granted driver´s licenses, even medical insurance, and getting away with it all. The media and the Democratic Party seem to support every bit of it. And if you are opposed like I am, they call you a bigot. The only person I see who represents my feelings at all is Donald Trump!”


Eighty percent of Americans think illegal immigration is a serious problem, [6] and if Democrats and the liberal media do not wake up, Trump is going to exploit this sentiment and take illegal immigration fears, worries, and anger right to the bank.

He did it before, and he´ll do it again.

Reason 2: Impeachment backlash

Americans are weary of the impeachment circus parading on their nightly news. Impeachment talk began as soon as Trump took office and continued throughout his entire Presidency. If there was insufficient Mueller proof that the President colluded, that morphed into obstruction. And when obstruction withered, the Ukrainegate flag was raised for more saluting.

But a large share of the American body politic is beleaguered beyond belief by the obsessive CNN-MSNBC-New York Times fixations on this subject. Some of the population just doesn´t buy in. They are tired. They believe most of it is based on falsehood, rumor, inaccuracy, and wholesale hatred of the President of the United States.

We don´t know exactly how big that demographic is, but wherever this sliver of the population looks, and every late-night comedian they encounter, it seems just another anti-Trump propaganda foil is walking on stage. {snip}

Despite these media festivities, an important backlash is incubating to which Democrats seem oblivious. They don´t realize that the sanctimonious moral purity trip has gone on far too long, in too great an excess, and inside the inflating bubble of Trumpian animus, scads of on-the-fence-independent voters are fed up with the piety, condescension, character assassination, and saying to themselves, “enough is enough!”


And it isn´t going to help the sanctimony of the Democratic Party one bit when Joe Biden keeps insisting that his son never came to him and said “Hey, dad I just got a job in the Ukraine that pays $50,000 a month! No experience necessary.” Democrat elites magically convinced themselves that Americans will believe Hunter Biden never got around to mentioning any of that to his dad. But they may be underestimating the intelligence of the electorate.

Reason 3: Endless Wars

Democrats used to be a party of freedom, peace, and love. They were opposed to war, especially the Vietnam War. Most liked Fidel too.

But today Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi applaud when jingoist John Bolton wants to overthrow the government of Venezuela. Hugo Chavez built 3 million homes for poor Venezuelans, cut poverty 48 percent in less than a decade, doubled literacy levels, and was brother-in-arms with Fidel, but Democrats today seem just as blood thirsty to overthrow Maduro and Venezuela as the Neo-Cons are.

When a peace initiative goes out to North Korea and a face-to-face negotiation happens—something Obama promised but never pulled off—Democrats object saying Trump is giving away too much or that he is grandstanding.

When Trump wants to withdraw troops from Syria—where the U.S. never had any legal right to be in the first place—they call it “betrayal.”

They yoked themselves so thoroughly with the military-industrial complex and Lindsey Graham they insist on remaining in Syria as much as he does. They want to press ever closer to Russia´s borders in the Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Estonia, and The Black Sea, and of course, their pom poms wave wildly as they cheerlead even more anti-Russian hysteria.

What Democrats miss is that a majority of Americans have consistently wanted us to leave Iraq (58 %), [7] to stay out of Syria (53 %), [8] to leave Afghanistan (61%), [9] and not to get embroiled in any war with Iran (57%). [10]

Seventy percent of Americans are opposed to these endless military adventures. [11] All of those majorities have been ignored by corporate Democrats when those polls were taken, and they still are ignored today.

Only Tulsi Gabbard meekly tries to remind the Democratic Party of its nonviolent roots as she is gingerly escorted out of the room by party insiders.

But Trump will stand up and say he did not enter any new wars as he promised, that he removed troops from Syria as promised, that he is negotiating a pull out from the 18-year disaster of Afghanistan as promised, that he sought peace in North Korea as promised, and that if re-elected he will continue to remove the U.S. from its idiotic wars.

And that salesmanship will rack up even more points that he can take to the bank, because his words fully resonate with how the majority of Americans actually feel.

Reason 4: Pocketbooks

Finally, and despite panglossian globalist rhetoric that permeates the media, Americans {snip} can look around the Midwest and see decaying inner cities and eviscerated factories emptied of manufacturing jobs that went abroad in search of 50 cent-an-hour labor.

They never liked it in the first place, and when Trump offered to “make America great again” the slogan more than made the grade in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio. They remembered their cities were once thriving manufacturing engines that made steel, aluminum, cars, televisions, and refrigerators.

But Democrats and the corporate media raged on for years against it. It is “tribalism,” they say, “nativism,” “populism” “protectionism” and, of course, all of these attacks are reflexively counterpointed with assignations that Trump is a criminal, a racist, a whoremonger, and a white supremacist to boot.

Underneath the media hyperbole, though, is an embarrassing reality that is hard to shake. Middle-class incomes are $6000 higher than they were when Trump took office. [12] 401K retirement plans went up 33 percent,[13] and many of these folks think Trump´s ballsy talk about tariffs and deals with Mexico, China, Canada, and Japan helped make all that possible.

A large swath of Americans were opposed to corporations outsourcing their jobs abroad. Bernie Sanders captured those feelings perfectly, {snip}.

He did it once and he’ll do it again: “Your incomes are better, your good-paying jobs are returning. Your retirement portfolios have grown. Your factories are coming home. I´ve stopped lots of countries from ripping us off, and I´ll stop them even more if reelected!”

Trump is expert in catalyzing anger and resentment, and he is all ready to bang out another home run and sashay around the bases with his signature haughtiness.


We have to prevent another four years of Donald Trump. It is time Democrats became partners again with American workers, not elitists who think of the rank and file as deplorable.
