I hope democratic minded voters are coming around to realize what a train wreck the new Democratic party is. It is nothing like the old democratic party. It is one thing to let out petty criminals on No Bail. It is another to use lawfare to go after political opponents. That is something reminiscent of Russia and the Nazis along with a host of other dictatorships.

My 76 YO hispanic F-in_L is a lifelong Democrat and he absolutely loathes the Democratic Party of today. He is a staunch Trump supporter.

Then WHY is he a "Democrat?"

RU saying, save for President Trump, he’s still voting for the left?

If you want to test this hypothesis in your own neighborhood then put up a flag.

You'll find out real quick where people stand. It's been enlightening for me once I did it.

It's a sad state of affairs that everyone knows what that "means" now...

We just hung a(n American) flag on our house this month. I've never been into flags, honestly haven't given them much thought, but felt compelled for this very reason. For those with similar sentiments, it's a bolstering effect. A statement to say, I actually believe and live my life in accordance with what we were founded on. If now is not the time to make a statement of commitment to life and liberty then I don't know when will be.

Ryan, you are so right!! I have a 4’ eagle statue in my front yard with a 3x5 American Flag attached. My neighbors comment on how much they like the display, then say “Hey, what do you think of that sham Trump trial?” I live in the country, farmers and Trump signs everywhere. Only one guy gives me the stink eye - I know who he voted for.

I guess you've seen my Gadsden flag?

It annoys the living shit out of my "pride flag" waving neighbor.

On the other hand, the tradesmen who patronize the nearby hardware store regularly honk the horns on their trucks and flash a "thumbs up."

My Gadsden flag is on my car--in Florida, we have vanity plates featuring the Gadsden front and center, with the words "Don't Tread on Me" in place of a state motto. Wish Substack would enable images already, but if you are interested, here's what it looks like!

I've seen it when visiting a friend with a winter home in Florida.

It'll never be offered here in Maskachusetts. Probably just as well--my car would be vandalized.

Yes there are lots of "irregularly hung Canadian Flags" here in my part of Canada. Before Trudeau there were none. I have had a flag I bought for the purpose a couple of years ago however have been too busy to get a flag pole to mount it on the house. Part of that is because my Wife insists I hang her "Queen Romana" flag first. I'm not too busy right now so hopefully I can do both in the next couple of weeks now that I have the wall brackets welded up.

Ha! That's funny about wifey Fred!

We don't see eye to eye on the Queen but I have to admit I took the wife to a couple of the Queen's events and the hug the Queen gave me energized me for two weeks. There is something there. Never had that kind of response to a hug before. Shes got her heart in the right place and promotes the anti vaccine side as well.

When are Canadians going to oust Trudeau?

We face the same regulatory problems as other free election countries. Our next federal election is October 2025. We are stuck with the WEF Turd until then unless the NDP party ceases to support the Liberal Minority Government.

I am not so worried about them. It is the Billionaire class that has hijacked the Democratic Party that I am worried about. They are funding this crap.

Can we say that there's funding on both sides? Biden pulled in 1.7 billion in 2020 and Trump pulled in 1 billion. As the article showed, Billionaires are backing the Republican party as well.

It's really the billionaires that are running this show (PS: and have been for a while as I argue in my book: https://unorthodoxy.substack.com/p/donating-to-a-good-cause-how-billionaires), but until call that for what it is, this show will keep on continuing -- and this verdict is nothing but the latest chapter of the 2024 election: A convicted felon as American Presidential candidate: https://unorthodoxy.substack.com/p/breaking-news-the-verdict-doesnt

There are billionaires financing candidates on both sides. I am worried about the WEF Billionaires looking to wreck the Western Economies who support the Democrats. It remains to be seen if any important Republican politicians have been bought.

So you think most of the Democratic Party supports this. I didn't think it was that bad.

I'm not sure that all Democrat voters support the "progressive" policies of their elected leaders, but they are used to pulling the Democrat lever and have been repeatedly told Trump is a combination of Hitler and Satan.

I think they are starting to figure out that many (or most) of the people supporting Trump are serious and this will not go down without a complete restoration of the republic, no matter what it takes. Donations and votes for Trump are now the least of the problems for the left.

Damn Straight.

They have no fucking clue what they've unleashed.

In the last 36 hours I've had 11 people I know tell me that they had zero plans of voting for Trump....until now.

They're trying to intimidate and cower us into silence.....and draw us offside.

We're not falling for it. They have awoken a sleeping giant.

Ryan you are totally correct! Banana Republic Biden has no clue about what he unleashed by coordinating all these prosecutions of his political opponents, including the January 6 hostages.

Yeah it all matters...and doesn't at the same time.

Really all that matters is we have to get these commies out of office.

I dropped him a C note - because of the trial, and all the other sh!t the demorats have pulled. If I had a million to spare, I’d give him that as well. I am so disillusioned with this judicial system.

👍🏼 ✅ 👌 - I’d only made one direct campaign donation before, myself (I’ll leave my age out of this), other than to that young fella from NC - who sadly flamed out.

ANYWHO, I wrote a 4 digit check a couple weeks prior to the trial ending, as well as to a local challenger - and I feel good 😊

It’s amazing the dollar support from the big guns, it’s more amazing the number of us small donors

They are old pros at this game. My signature on a candidate's petition was challenged by the other party when I was in college back in 1984. Democrat primary in NYC. I wasn't present because I was back in school and my signature was struck. They did this enough times to eliminate my candidate from the primary. This is exactly how Obama started his political career in Illinois. Getting his oponents disappeared from ballots. Old school shenanigans.

I'm from New Jersey, a lifelong Jersey girl. However, I split for Florida during the oppressive kommie jab mandate days of 2020, and I'm never going back.

With that said, that Wildwood crowd was impressive, and the UFC more so. However, most of the sane-minded people have fled NJ just like I did for the safety and liberty of red states, so I don't really think there are enough red votes remaining there to matter.

It's sad and it sucks, as I have no choice but to shlep up there 3x a year to visit my elderly parents, who aren't leaving NJ. I just hope the place doesn't collapse while they are still breathing.

And why wouldn’t it bolster his candidacy? All but the most addled mind-numbed leftist robots have seen this corrupt proceeding for the travesty it has been. Americans know true injustice when they see it and Americans detest bullies.

It also opened the eyes of Democrats, who see that the leaders of their party have weaponized the FBI, the DOJ and the justice system. It makes them think this could happen to them if they disagree with the Democrat's policies and criticize them publicly.

If Trump spent over $100 million to defend himself just imagine what the Stalinistic WITCH hunters spent using the AMERICAN TAXPAYER monies in doing so. They just FLEECE the taxpayer at will now, not to mention what they have done with all the people around Trump and people who just walked thru the Capital (most) on Jan 6th 2021

I'd like you to cover how many people have been showing up to Biden campaign rallies. Biden had one recently at a school gym, and gym floor was not filled up with chairs and people. Not that many people. It's like Trump vs. Hillary in 2016. Trump has big rallies with lots of people, the democratic candidate for president does not.

Mostly likely only the teachers union people were there.

I wasn't going to re-up for Alex last year given his serious TDS. However, he appears to be coming over to the dark side--slowly--and coupled with his humor and excellent prose, I decided to renew. Glad I did! I pay for very few subscriptions of this ilk.
