Pollster Frank Luntz hosted a focus group and found the participants “overwhelmingly ” believe vice president Mike Pence won Wednesday night’s debate.

After the debate was over, he asked for a show of hands as far as who won, and told everyone they had to choose one way or the others. No one was allowed to abstain.

Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris only received two votes out of the 15 undecided voters present. The rest went for Pence.

“It’s overwhelmingly Mike Pence ,” Luntz said as he counted the hands.

When he asked why, the answers sounded like this:

“Mike Pence was more factual. ”

“I felt he was a lot more composed and I wasn’t a fan of her continual facial expressions.”

“He had command of the issues.”

“Harris didn’t look presidential to me.”

“Harris struggled to put together coherent reasons for different questions.”

One person who said Harris won said, “I feel she cared about the people and she looked presidential.”

“]Pence had] straightforward answers, even if I don’t agree with him on policies.”

“He kept his cool. He answered with facts.”

“She was a less fluid communicator.”

When asked to use one word or phrase to describe Pence, the group said, “presidential, robotic, he could be president, even-keeled presidential, bland, regressive, professional, unsympathetic, calm, cool, typical politician, comfortable, no emotion.”

When asked to use one word or phrase to describe Harris, the group was much tougher: “evasive, nervous, focused on the past, shifting blame, caring, snarky and sarcastic, too rehearsed, nervous, evasive, abrasive, unsteady, rigid, un-presidential.”

Overall, a big issue was Kamala’s “annoying” facial expressions and “evasive answers,” most especially her refusal to answer the question about packing the Supreme Court. A question Joe Biden also refuses to answer.

Luntz appeared on Fox News and summed up the undecided focus group with three bullet points.

“The complaint about Kamala Harris was that she was abrasive and condescending. The complaint about Mike Pence was that he was too tired, but … presidential. If this is a battle over style and substance,” Luntz said, “which is often the case with undecided voters because they simply do not choose on policy — they also choose on persona — this was Mike Pence’s night.”

Point number three was that the focus group was more upset over “Kamala Harris’s reactions to Pence. The smiling, the smirking, the scowling than they … that Mike Pence went over his time.”

“This is clearly a better debate than the first one,” Luntz said, but that it would not change many minds. “Mike Pence was the winner of tonight’s confrontation.”

It was obvious to anyone who watched the debate that Pence was the clear winner.

When the fake news media are reduced to making an issue out of a house fly and attacking Pence for “mansplaining,” as though Harris is some weak-willed damsel-in-distress unable to take care of herself, you know Pence won.

One of the key moments of Tuesday night’s presidential debate was Joe Biden promising twice! to raise taxes on everyone, including the middle class.

“That’s why I’m going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts,” Biden said during his first of three debates with President Trump. And then, to accentuate the point, he said it again, “I’m going to eliminate those tax cuts.”

Let me repeat what he said in full: “That’s why I’m going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts. And I’m going to eliminate those tax cuts.”

No gray area, no ambiguity, no caveat.

Oh, and if Biden intends to eliminate the Trump tax cuts altogether, if he does what left-wing governors like Andrew Cuomo want done, while Biden is raising taxes on the middle class, he will be lowering taxes on the wealthy.

But let’s start with Biden’s promise to raise taxes on the middle class…

Here are the facts…

If you “eliminate the Trump tax cuts,” you raise taxes on the middle class.

You cannot eliminate the Trump tax cuts without raising taxes on the middle class, because the Trump tax cuts cut middle class taxes.

The Trump tax cuts, officially known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), were a boon for the middle class in how they practically doubled the standard deduction for singles from $6,350 in 2017 to $12,000 in 2018; nearly doubled the standard deduction for married couples from $12,700 to $24,400, and bumped up the child tax credit up from $1,000 in 2017 to $2,000 in 2018.

If you eliminate the Trump tax cuts, you slash those deductions on working people and families almost in half. That’s a huge tax increase because then, for example, a married couple will be paying federal taxes $11,700 in income they weren’t paying under the TCJA. So if your federal tax rate is, say, 20 percent, that’s an annual tax increase of around $2300.

Now get this…

The TCJA also raised taxes on the rich by capping the wealthy’s ability to deduct their state and local taxes from reported federal income to just $10,000.

Before the TCJA closed this obscene loophole, the rich were able to deduct every penny of their local and state taxes from their federal income. It was an unlimited deduction, so whatever the wealthy paid in local taxes, was deducted and they paid no federal income tax on that amount.

For instance, let’s say Sean Hannity, who lives in New York, pays $5 million a year in state taxes. I have no idea about anything involving Sean Hannity’s income, but that is not a preposterous number… Anyway, before the TCJA, Hannity was allowed to deduct every penny of that $5 million from his federal income tax. So if his federal tax rate was 20 percent, he was paying a million fewer dollars in federal income taxes. Under the TCJA ,he can only deduct $10,000 of the $5 million from his income, which means he’s paying almost a million more in federal income tax today.

Basically, this obscene loophole allowed Democrat-run states like New York and California to impose all these staggering taxes, but the wealthy didn’t really pay all that much because they paid no federal income tax on that amount.

This essentially means federal taxpayers ended up subsidizing the wealthy’s local tax burden.

Let me repeat that this was an obscene tax cut for the wealthy, and Joe Biden sure sounds like he intends to reinstate this obscene tax cut by eliminating the TCJA.

There’s no question that phony tax-the-rich Democrats like Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) are desperate to reinstate this tax cut for the wealthy. Cuomo has threatened to sue to lower taxes on the wealthy.

Democrats from the far-left state of California are just as desperate to reinstate this tax cut for the wealthy and have proposed all kinds of gimmicks.

The media will focus on interruptions and lies about Trump refusing to denounce white supremacists, but this is the kind of stuff voters remember.

They remember the difference in what they were paying before the Trump tax cuts and what they pay now… and when you’re in the middle class, that can be all the difference.

They told us Robert Mueller was Captain America: Crusader for Truth, and instead we got George Costanza and all the inept deception, sweaty stalling, and blundering dishonesty that comes with him.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s bumbling, stumbling, grumbling, tumbling, crumbling testimony Wednesday before the U.S House of Representatives was not only karma on steroids, it once again proved just how brilliant the American Constitution is.

You see, the sublime spectacle of watching Robert Mueller’s reputation go up in flames, flames ignited by his own corrupt report and fueled by three years of the establishment media’s hoax machinery, would not have been possible without the Separation of Powers, without the ability of one branch of government to hold the other in check,

While I certainly sympathize with President Trump not wanting Mueller to appear before congress, because it could only mean one more fake news-cycle distracting from all his successes, I always wanted Mueller to appear.

As awful as congress is, we chose those guys to represent us, to speak for us; and the very idea that we would hand a Robert Mueller tens of millions of dollars, the power to overturn a presidential election, and the unlimited power to prosecute, subpoena, and investigate — the idea that one man would be handed Thor’s hammer and then allowed to hurl a report, give a haughty public statement, and skip town under the cover of Media Mythologizing, was not only intolerable to me, it was un-American.

Oh, no… This man must take the stand, must answer for himself, must be cross-examined. We The People have a few goddamned questions and don’t give a tinker’s damn whether or not they’re outside your precious little purview because at the very least you’re going to have to tell the world you refuse to answer our questions. And so…

My God, did you see what happened yesterday… The Emperor not only has no clothes, every time you toss him a reasonable question he acts as though you just woke him up in front of the TV to ask if he wants some oatmeal.

Did you see what happened yesterday… Robert Mueller is a liar, a brazen liar who wants us to believe he never heard of Fusion GPS.

Did you see what happened yesterday… Captain America is a partisan monster, a Resistance Vengeance Machine whose precious purview included nothing that matters — Christopher Steele: Not in my purview, bro. The FISA warrants to spy on a sitting president: Not on my purview, bro. Russia’s role in the Steele Dossier: You are totally harshing my purview, bro. Hillary Clinton and the DNC’s role in the Steele dossier: Why are you all up in my purview, bro? The Obama administration’s unprecedented unmasking of Trump officials: Purview, bro. The FBI spying on a presidential campaign: Watch me purview, bro. James Comey’s leaks: I hardly know the man. Fusion GPS: What is this Fusion GPS you speak of?

Oh, but what is in Walter Mitty’s purview?

Paul Manafort’s taxes.

Excuse me Captain America, can you explain why you destroyed the lives of countless Trump associates, why you bankrupted countless Trump allies, why you arrested them and went after their children and decimated their life’s work by indicting them for perjury but did not indict Joseph Mifsud…

I’ll allow Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to take it from here:

Joseph Mifsud is the … mysterious professor who lives in Rome and London. Works and teaches at two different universities. This is the guy who told Papadopoulos. He’s the guy who starts it all. And when the FBI interviews him, he lies three times and yet you don’t charge him with a crime. You charge Rick Gates for false statements. You charge Paul Manafort for false statements. You charge Michael Cohen with false statements. You charge Michael Flynn, a three star general with false statements. But the guy who puts the country through this whole saga starts it all for three years we’ve lived this now–he lies and you guys don’t charge him. And I’m curious as to why.

And Mr. Magoo can only respond with: I can’t get into it.

But he can get into Paul Manafort’s taxes.

Hey, Atticus Finch, why are Paul Manafort’s taxes within your purview but not anything that matters?

Because when you are a Dirty Cop allowing yourself to be used as a “lifetime Republican” prop by the fake news media and those 17 Hillary-adoring prosecutors you hired, all that matters is making those fuckers pay; your only purview is revenge and if that means early morning raids staged for Fake News and threatening the son of a three-star general, and violating the most American principle of all, even though…

I’ll let John Ratcliffe (R-TX) take it from here….

…nowhere does it say that you were to conclusively determine Donald Trump’s innocence or that the special counsel report should determine whether or not to exonerate him. It’s not in any of the documents. It’s not in your appointment order. It’s not in the special counsel regulations. It’s not in the OLC opinions. It’s not in the justice manual, and it’s not in the Principles of Federal Prosecution.

Nowhere do those words appear together because respectfully, respectfully, director, it was not the special counsel’s job to conclusively Donald Trump’s innocence or to exonerate him because the bedrock principle of our justice system is a presumption of innocence. It exists for everyone. Everyone is entitled to it, including sitting presidents. And because there is a presumption of innocence, prosecutors never, ever need to conclusively determine it.

There’s a lot of speculation about Mueller’s reputation-burning performance Wednesday. Maybe he’s getting old. Maybe he’s getting senile. Maybe he didn’t understand the report he authored because he didn’t write it. Maybe he wasn’t involved enough in the investigation to understand it.

I don’t know.

I’m not a doctor.

And if he is old and frail, I take no pleasure in watching an old man shred his dignity in front of the whole world.

But I’m paid to tell you what I think — and here’s what I think.

You want to know who Robert Mueller reminded me of yesterday?

A guilty man.

I didn’t see senility or fragility or confusion or old age or anything close to doddering.

What I saw was a guilty man forced to take the stand against his will, a guilty man who fought like hell to never appear for a cross examination. Why? Because he’s guilty. And because the facts are not on his side, because he cannot explain his behavior, because he cannot justify what he’s done, he has only one choice and that’s to stall — to ask for questions to be repeated, to pretend he doesn’t understand, to run out the clock, and when that fails, he simply refuses to answer any question (take the Fifth!) that will confirm his guilt.

And in the end we saw who Robert Mueller really is — a dissembling, dishonest, deceptive bureaucrat — a front man (Captain America!) leading a criminal gang of coup plotters staffed with partisan prosecutors, the sore losers in the establishment media, the Democrat Party, and Toxic Revengers with names like James Comey and Andrew McCabe.

A Dirty Cop will say that Of course I didn’t leak my crybaby letter to Attorney General Bill Barr to the media and then refuse to answer (purview, bro) if his office leaked news of the raid on Roger Stone to CNNLOL — and that is exactly what we saw happen yesterday.

A Dirty Cop will remember everything in his preview (bro), but can’t remember when he figured out when Trump did not commit a crime, did not collude with the Russians (Gee, was it before or after the midterm elections?) — and that is exactly what we saw happen yesterday.

What do the guilty-as-hell do under cross examination? They sweat, fall apart, collapse, melt down, break down, lose their composure, lie, stall, stutter, and gulp, and that’s exactly what we saw happen yesterday.

A guilty man was forced to take the witness stand, a Dirty Cop was cross examined, cornered, trapped, exposed, stripped of his media mythology shield, and found to be Dirty…

And it was glorious.

Is it President Trump’s fault the Four Harridans of the Dempocalypse are “women of color?”

If you have enough of your own mind left after decades of being socialized by the media into believing everything is racist except actual racism, you are keenly aware that the media, Democrats, and Never Trump Cucks are acting as though it’s Trump’s fault The Jew-Hating Squad — which is made up of freshmen Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — is a not a bunch of straight, white males.

All Trump did, all he is guilty of is telling the truth about how horrible these women are — how they appease terrorists; how they smear America as a country filled with concentration camps; how they destroy tens of thousands of jobs in New York; how they’re raging antisemites who despise Jews; how they’re preening, wannabe dictators desperate for personal power through socialism; and how, yes, they are straight-up racists

But it is Trump who is attacked as a racist — even though, you know, he never mentioned race.

Answer me this question: What race is he denigrating?

I’m sorry, but Trump is not responsible for the color of another person’s skin. So what he is really doing is the least racist thing any American can do, which is to treat these villains as he would anyone else who holds their toxic beliefs.

If you think Trump singles out only “people of color,” ask the straightest, squarest, lily-white males in the free world — ask Jeb Bush, Justin Amash, Bill Kristol, Joe Scarborough, Ben Sasse, Jeff Flake, Paul Ryan, and Mitt Romney about that.

But, you see, in America today, we’re not supposed to tell the truth about the left, and that’s why the activist left and their castle guards in the media are so furious and frustrated with Trump. He cannot be cucked, and now that he’s told the truth about these lady-monsters, the media are beside themselves with impotent rage because not being able to cuck him like the rest of the GOP drives them all crazy.

Here’s what we know…

If the Four Harridans of the Dempocalypse were not “women of color,” another shriek would have been invented by the media to defend them from Trump. If they were four white guys but one was homosexual, Trump would be attacked as a homophobe. If one were Jewish, he’d be attacked as a Nazi. If one had a harelip, he’d be accused of mocking people with birth defects.

And if none of that worked, if the Four Harridans of the Dempocalypse were all straight, white males, the media would accuse Trump of calling for violence against them.

This is the trap the media have been setting for Republicans for decades and Trump is the first Republican to understand that the only way to avoid that trap is to step into it, pull down your pants, shake your ass, and flip everyone the bird.

What’s more, can someone explain to me why it’s not okay to tell antisemitic bigots to get the hell out of the country? What could be more un-American than racism and bigotry? What could be more un-American than refusing to condemn al Qaeda or lobbying for socialism?

And why can’t we tell immigrants who come here only to hate on us to go back home?

What’s wrong with that? My wife’s a Mexican immigrant who frequently tells these hideous leftists to get the hell out.

Is my immigrant “person of color” wife a racist?

Regardless, the news around Trump’s tweets is so fake, we’re being told he told people to “go home” when he didn’t. Here’s what he wrote:

Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.

Trump is making a larger point in that tweet, not telling anyone to go home and never come back.

The truth is that Trump never brought up skin color, gender, or “people of color,” which means there was nothing racist about his tweets. Nothing nativist. Nothing xenophobic. His tweets focused on only one thing: behavior — the appalling behavior of the harridans, their indefensible bigotry, their open hatred of Jews, their unforgivable use of equivalence to compare the American military to al Qaeda and our border enforcement to Nazi concentration camps, their un-American crusade to prioritize illegal immigrants over American citizens and legal immigrants.

Trump told the truth. Trump defended America. This is what a president is supposed to do.

But in America today nothing is more dangerous than telling the truth. The media cannot stand it. The Democrat Party cannot survive it. The simpering gerbil-cucks who call themselves “Never Trump TrueCons” melt down like little girls over the very idea of waging this righteous battle in the only way it can be won — with the same belligerence the other side uses when they talk of “concentration camps” and “impeaching the motherfucker.”

Trump has the heart of a lion, and his willingness to take flaming arrows in the back to speak the truth is the most liberating, crucial, noble, effective, and American defense of free speech in my lifetime.

We will have to wait and see how and if the debates move the needle within the Democrat primary. But what these last two nights have done is clarify a Democrat Party that is bound and determined to confiscate our guns, our money and our health insurance. Oh, and then Democrats are going to decriminalize illegal immigration and give our health insurance to illegal aliens.

That is my long way of saying President Trump was the winner of the Democrat debates, because he is the only person standing between us and this:

  • Tax increases.
  • Gun confiscations.
  • Slave reparations
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration.
  • No more deporting of illegal immigrants.
  • Abolish the private health insurance currently held by over 150 million Americans.
  • Give free health insurance to illegal immigrants.

Three of the four Democrat front-runners, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders have committed to abolishing our private health insurance plans.

Almost all of the candidates, including those listed above, support forcing law-abiding taxpayers to pay slave reparations.

Every single candidate raised their hand Thursday night, including Joe Biden, when asked if they would offer free health care to illegal aliens.

And all of them, every one of them, promised to stop deportations, this includes Biden — who is supposed to be the sanest of the bunch.

“Should someone who is here without documents, and that is his only offense, should that person be deported?” Diaz-Balart asked Biden.

Biden’s answer was clear, “That person should not be the focus of deportation. We should fundamentally change the way we deal with things.”

Harris was even more strident: “Absolutely not, they should not be deported.”

Buttigieg: “That criminalization, that is the basis for family separation. You do away with that, it’s no longer possible. Of course it wouldn’t be possible anyway in my presidency, because it is dead wrong.”

Man alive.

Oh, and then there is legalizing abortion right up until birth at taxpayer’s expense — which the sane one, Biden, also supports.

This kind of “take” is now something of a cliché, but how did President Trump not win last night’s debate, when he will almost certainly be up against a Democrat who has promised to raise taxes, open the border, give illegal aliens he will not deport free welfare benefits for life, and decriminalize entering the country illegally while criminalizing gun ownership?

Not to belabor this point, but Biden is supposed to be the sane one, correct? And yet, he went on the record Thursday night promising to outlaw every gun that is not a smart gun, meaning every gun that only operates when it reads the owner’s handprints, meaning every single gun being sold today.

“No gun should be able to be sold unless your biometric measure could pull that trigger. It’s within our right to do that. We can do that. Our enemy is the gun manufacturers, not the NRA, the gun manufacturers,” Biden said.

So much for that housewife being able to fire off a couple of shotgun blasts to scare away an intruder. If her husband or son owns that gun, she will have to use it as a club.

The Democrat Party’s vision for America, and I say this without exaggeration, is one where floods of illegal aliens can legally enter our country to enjoy free health and welfare benefits for life while American citizens are stripped of their health insurance, not allowed to defend themselves, forced to pay slave reparations, and hit with massive tax increases to pay for other people’s student loans.

How will our hospitals, doctors, and schools handle this influx of millions of illegals?

Only Trump stands between us and this madness.

While it is true that not many people are paying attention right now, what is also true is that these video clips, quotes, and positions will live on forever, are now cemented in the 2020 election.

A poll of likely general election voters shows President Donald Trump beating three out of four possible Democrat presidential candidates.

The poll also shows that if former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz makes a run as an Independent, he is much more of a drain on the Democrat candidate than on Trump.

Without Schultz on the ballot, former Vice President Joe Biden beats Trump by seven points; 50 percent to 43 percent, with seven percent undecided.

With Schultz in the race, the race tightens with 45 percent choosing Biden, 43 percent choosing Trump, and six percent going for Schultz.

Head to head, Trump squeaks out a single point lead against Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), 45 percent to 44 percent (12 percent undecided).

With Schultz in the race, Trump beats Harris by four points, 42 percent to 38 percent. Schultz earns 7 percent of the vote.

The poll did not look at head-to-head competitions between Trump and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) or former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), but with Schultz in the race, Trump beats Warren 42 percent to 39 percent; Schultz earns 8 percent.

Trump wallops O’Rourke 42 percent to 33 percent; Schultz earns nine percent.

As of now, Schultz has fairly high name recognition (48 percent), but only 18 percent view him favorable, while 40 percent view him unfavorably.

The Republican Party overall polls better than Democrats, with 39 percent choosing the GOP to “lead the country forward,” against 37 percent who say the same about Democrats. Only 19 percent want a third option.

Those polled are almost evenly split on the issue of building a wall at the southern border. A plurality of 48 percent oppose the wall, while 46 percent want to see it built.

Medicare for all is a loser; a plurality of 42 percent oppose it, with only 36 percent supporting “replacing our current healthcare insurance system with Medicare for all.”

The good news for Democrats is that, at least according to this poll, in Biden they have a candidate who can beat Trump. The bad news is that Biden has already made two presidential runs and flamed out both times. Biden is a terrible presidential candidate, prone to gaffes, bizarre outbursts, and getting a little handsy with the ladies, including with children.

In this #MeToo era, there is no way Biden can run a national campaign without being haunted by these photos.

As a successful vice presidential candidate in 2008 and 2012, the spotlight was not on Biden, and then there is the age issue: the Serial Young Girl-Toucher turns 78 in 2020.

Biden is also up against the Democrat’s activist base, which is desperate to run a woman or minority (preferably both) and leave the era of white males in the past.

A concern for Trump is that his highest number of support in any of these polls is 45 percent. An incumbent should be polling, at the very least, in the high forties if he wants to feel good about re-election.

But Trump won the presidency in 2016 with just 46.1 percent of the national popular vote (to Hillary’s 48.1 percent), and as much as he might like to break 50 nationally, the president knows this is a state-by-state dogfight for electoral votes; he knows winning Pennsylvania is the key to a second term, not the popular vote.
